I Will Hold You Close To My Heart

Poem By Joann Carrano Passmore

Their voices are carried down the halls
Making me just want to fall
How can they be so cheerful?
When everything about this holiday makes me fearful.

You said it would be okay
That it would be a good day,
But now I’m starting to doubt
Everything we talked about,

Because now you’re dying
But no one else is crying
They say you deserve it,
Deserve rotting in a pit.

I don’t want you to go
Without you I’ll be alone
What kind of a holiday is this?
When all I get is something to miss

Maybe I’ll join you,
Then it would be just us two,
We could leave together
Now that would be much better

People may miss me
And that’s how it should be,
But I’ll be happier this way
Then I’ll have a good holiday.

Sleep precious
Sleep my love

From Dawn To Dusk

As the sky darkens I think of you
And all the things you said you would do
You said you would always be there
You said you would always care

Not Time Yet

A world without eyes
A world filled with lies
Truth hidden deep
Never spoken, not a peep


Hold my breath,
Close my eyes,
Waiting for the ripping
Deep inside

The Rose

The rose lying dead
Upon the drenched ground,
Bruised, hurt and broken

I Am Me

I’m crumbling from within
My minds in a continuous spin,
Round and around it goes
I’m great at hiding so no one knows
