Leaves of Lines [Poetry collection]

A compilation of my poetry ranging across the board. [I'm not depressed, by the way] So far, these are all published as separate movellas, so you can either comment here on the whole, or if you want to leave comments on a specific poem, feel free to find that one in my list. Either way is fine with me! Photo cred: https://www.flickr.com/photos/109065142@N02/sets


10. Back (Pt. 2)

I try and try,

I close my eyes,

to shut away the tears.


I lie and lie,

just to myself,

for no one else hears.


I run and run,

away from here,

away from this lonely place.


I turn and turn,

to slink away,

and somehow hide my face.


But when the road runs out of ground,

and the pavement disappears,

I stop.


I turn back the way I came

and to my knees,

I drop.


I can’t go forward,

I can’t go back,

I can’t.


I’m stuck here,

only here,

I rant.


The breeze blows, the river sounds,

but cannot carry to 

my ears.


The sun shines, bright and strong,

but can’t quite dry

my tears.


But something changes, something new

comes close to

my side.


Whispering in my covered ears,

telling me not

to hide.


Birds gather me up on fanciful song,

bearing me back on



And slowly, step by step,

I make my way
