I walk through these halls
Where I don't belong
It still seems so strange to me
I hurry along to escape the unfamiliar faces
Of friends laughing, talking, smiling
Which reminds me
When I belonged somewhere too.
Everyone thinks it is so easy
After all the years and friends in another place
Just to jump in
Like I have been here all along.
I don't talk very much to any of them
They wonder why and think
Maybe I am just painfully shy
But what could I possibly say
When they are reminiscing
I wasn't there
I don't want to hear all their memories
I don't want to hear them laugh, talk and smile
Don't they know
They make me feel out of place even more?
I try so hard to fit in
But when I am surrounded by them
The feelings are so overwhelming
It's hard to breath
My stomach turns to knots
My heart beats faster
My head starts to spin
And it goes blank
Except for planning an escape
I can't talk
But I want to scream so badly
For someone to understand
What it's like
To be the new girl.
"Ride the Wind"
submitted by TLM from PA
From a distance I can see the dark clouds approaching
I can hear the thunder rumbling...
See the lightening flashing
I begin to feel the breeze softly brushing against my cheek
Slowly blowing through my hair
Something inside me stirs because I know that soon
once again my fantasy will be alive
The thunder becomes louder
The lightening flashing brightly above my head
The once gentle breeze now fierst & powerful...
Beating against my body
My fantasy begins
The clenching wind travels through me
My soul can not resist it's wrath
Suddenly it is torn from within me & escapes my body
Brilliantly riding with the storm
Faster & Faster
Higher & Higher
Distance is no longer a barrier
I am being swept away to the one I love
Time is at a stance
Phenomenal Bliss for what seems an eternity
Slowly the storm unwinds its fury
Once again all is calm
My fantasy ends
My heart is complete
Ride the Wind

If life were a night, it would be cold and dark
Raging with a storm of uncertainty
Though like a knife, her light cut through the darkness
Showing me the way through the storm
I stumbled and fell, countless times along the way
I didn't follow that path
and now her light is gone.
All that remains is the darkness
and the brewing storm on the horizon
But my life has still been changed forever
For now I spend my nights, searching for the light.
This poem, I sent a request to the person who wrote it, asking if I could place it here on my website. My request was finally granted ~ Thanks Lonely :)
The old grandfather clock chimes no longer,
it hands stopped for the rest of eternity
Gone is the moon, the sun, the stars
Dark dreary world of blindness surrounds
Birds, crickets singing has vanquished
Deafness has fallen upon me
Beauty that had filled up my life
retreated when my love went away
My soul will wander restlessly through the rest of my days
Waiting, longing till when we are united together again

We have been friends through the years,
With all the feeling of joy, anger and the tears.
It is something that we cant live without,
But as a friend I can turn to you without a doubt.
I listen carefully and not speak a word.
For you would do the same without being heard.
The person so special, faith and true,
But the only person I can talk to is you.
Your friendship is strong and true,
And you bring me up, when I am feeling blue.
A fate of laughs, greatness and fun,
We have just one life to live and this is the one.
The past is full of memories that run though my head,
But the bad one is never talked about or even said.
Every moment of life should glisten with fresh morning new,
This reminds me of the greatest friendship anyone ever knew.
