I recently graduated from college and I am a very happy young newlywed. While life is most excellent now, my youth was very troubled.

I love to read and write, and hope someday to be an author. I very much enjoy poetry, but my real interests are in fantasy. I love reading and watching fantasy and sci/fi, especially while cuddling up with my husband. I currently work in landscaping with my husband. He is mostly in tree removal, while I mostly cut grass. We also dabble in real estate.

Stealthful foot steps following

First Caress

In purity, from my heart and soul I quest
After long thoughts, to myself confess
From deep in my being, love shall I assess
With my whole self to him shall I express... more »

Last Trip

I was a full day dead and quite content
My last word and testament has been sent
I lay in my coffin as they passed me by
They walked past in silence, never asking Why?... more »

Darlene is inactive on PH now, since her husband was killed*** nearly a year ago in an accident, leaving her with three little kids and a business to take care of. She wrote recently [after i inquired] that, with a lot of help from her late husband's parents, she is managing to care for herself, her kids, and her business. good luck 'Darla'. i liked your year-old 'Halloween' poem. bri :) Below i have pasted the poem she wrote following her husband's death. it has some typos, but i was NOT her editor for it. other than some typos from time to time, her writing is quite good, sometimes exceptional. ================================================ *** Winter's Heart - Poem by Darlene Walsh My heart is filled with winter And love can never again enter Forever more I shall be a lamenter Only pain has been left as my center I dared to believe that dreams come true The moments it lasted were just a few It was gone in a instant like sun on the dew For just the briefest of time we were two The evening sky was obsidian blackness Decembers's cold was showing its hardness I thought my love was safer than any fortress Life has again shown itself to be heartless A knock at the door and life came to an end At first I thought, 'It must be a friend.' At the sight of the badge, my heart did rend Into darkness I did quickly desend The words they spued I just couldn't bear How long did I just stand there and stare Till the words sank in and became a nightmare I think I collapsed but I was no longer aware My dream ended that obsidian night All that was joy became grim blight It was the end of all delight Life me hit again with spite I thought life had begun Now all was done Nowhere to run I was undone Nightmare Unfair Fear Tear Darlene Walsh Topic(s) of this poem: death Poems by Darlene Walsh: 64 / 65 « prev. poem next poem » Poet's Notes about The Poem Poem about the moment the police came to my door, and informed me my husband died in a car accident. - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - i hope Darlene continues to survive the death of her husband, and maybe even returns to action on PH someday. she is super busy now with 'life'. bri :)
