    Longing for the past
    clinging too damn hard
    but these days, you've changed fast.
    Differences never mattered before
    now it's all laid out there,
    the hurt is so very raw.
    Lines have been drawn
    I'm on the wrong side
    The friendship has been torn.
    Darkness consumes all
    I'm crying out
    Hear me, before I fall.

    That's beautiful Amethyst. Definitely relateable.


    Gone

    Walking the line, so often broken.
    Whispering words, shouldn't be spoken.
    Joining dots from a thunderstorm,
    Embraced by blanket, never warm.

    Holding a candle, to see in the dark,
    Burning the map, before you embark.
    Cover your body to hide the unseen,
    Like me or hate me, no in between.

    Bathe in the black, to wash all the light,
    Run to stand still or sink to take flight.
    Heaven is found when hell's all we bare,
    I blink and again, you are no longer there.

    Thanks, I didn't have anyone to talk to, so this was my outlet of sorts, even if I'm only an amateur.

    Darkness comes into the room
    stalking in to seal my doom.
    Gasping under the weight
    I want to cleanly wipe the slate.
    Instead I will run and hide
    and listen to my conscience being snide.

    You write beautifully, I would not call you an amateur at all. I am here, as always, if you need someone to talk to! <3

    I love you

    In memory of Dave aka George C and other PI'ers who have passed on.

    On PI, is where we first met
    The times we spoke, we'll never forget.
    We look fondly into the past,
    with you, we had a blast.
    You were a jolly old soul
    In our hearts, you left a hole.
    Memories of you will never cease
    and we hope that you've found peace.

    I found all my old PI poems!!!

    Here is one of my favourite (and rare) humorous ones:

    How to write a poem

    So you want to write a poem,
    all other art forms failed.
    It seemed the most efficient way
    to have your thoughts unveiled.

    To understand the intricate
    and tangled ways we pine.
    Then only to be troubled
    by words and flow, and rhyme.

    How can a person's feelings
    be summed up with some grammar?
    Some adjectives and adverbs,
    used only for the glamour?

    A poem is not words, you see,
    there is no right or wrong.
    Not something to be analysed,
    but voice immersed in song.

    So when you write a poem
    remember to be real.
    Include your sugar coating,
    but don't forget to feel.
