Reflections in the Mirror
Poems

Alone

An All Too Well Known Pain

Anger

Bottled Up

Do Not Cry

Do You Know Me

Missing You

Retribution

Silence

Sweet Bird

The Mirror

Together

What Am I

Without You

YOU ARE

Forbidden Pleasures

Alone

Torn from the warm glow of your fire,
Cast out into the frozen darkness,
Banished from ever again knowing
The reviving heat of your flames.
I must go alone into the black emptiness
That envelopes my wounded soul.
I commence my harrowing journey,
With a tear in my eye and a pain in my heart.
But I must be strong if I am to survive,
I cannot allow the darkness to overpower me.
And just as I begin to gain enough confidence
To believe I will be alright on my own,
I turn my head ever so slightly
Back towards your raging fire,
And the sadness of my expulsion
Returns to my freshly shattered heart.
The tears being to flow down my cheeks,
Turning to ice crystals on my skin.
Why must you taunt my aching soul
With your fervently dancing flames?
Never again will I feel the warmth
Of your fire upon my tender face,
Or the immense joy that your
Radiant glow brings to my heart.
I am utterly and absolutely alone
In this world of frozen dreams,
And broken friendships.
