A Strange Fear

Poem By Candice Renae Williams

While speaking I
Noticed my sister move into my sight
And suddenly she was not 12
But 4 to my fright.
Her face had contorted in my minds eye
And I stared at the face of her little girl eyes
Fear, Fear drenched my body in cold sweat
She mumbled her sufferings in a continous lull
But all of my focus was fixed to her face
Youth, innocent
God, forgive me this rebase
For I began to back away
From this vision-my eyes now closed tight
God please take it away
just leave me alone this night
And so with a keening cry
I ran right up to my bed
and fumbled with the light.

Waiting For Rain

I love the rain,
The way it gracefully falls from the leaves,
To plop soundlessly on an unforgiving ground,
Soaking up the rain until it fades away.

Innocence Of A Rose

Love is delicate,
As like the petals of a rose
Love is innocent,
like the purity of a rose


When she loves,
she'll hold it tight in her heart
When she cries,
she'll hide all the pain in her heart

Amongst A Flower

Your hope is a leaf,
amongst a flower,
where liquidy dew drops fall,
into its gentle grasp.

Lit Candle Flickering

The cool touch of winter frosted the window
the candle's lit wave washed over the glass
in a sheen of droplets
like pristine show flakes

Forget; An Optimal Solution When One Possesses A Lighter With Which To Start The Process.

The burn in my throat is so familiar.
Cough, sleep, cough, and wake.
Burn’t muck dripping down the drain.
