Flying High

Poem By Christopher McInnes

Shattered and torn like a broken vase.
My heart lies in pieces never to replace.
All I long for is a hello, a smile of some
kind. All you give are cold shoulders and
goodbyes. Never thinking three words could
turn to worry, wierdness, and maybe hate.

Never meaning to despise you; never
wanting damage to come. Still I feel
cheated; after all I am the hurt one. You
say it will happen someday, you think it
will all be okay. How can it be after my
heart lies in shammbles and my trust for
you an uncertainty.

Bending to pick up the pieces, vowing to
replace what you have done, reminding
myself of times that were fun. No longer
can we go back to them, no longer will
things be the same, for I am showing respect
and taking all the blame. Your other friendship
is still intact, for he will never take sides.
Even though you broke my heart you life
the same will strive.

Broken like a record, scratched, shattered,
torn. My heart is on the mend, my trust
for others new born. Just because you
broke me, and the pieces still need to be
replaced, I will move on from this storm and
persist through the cold rain.

A Sister Is.....

A sister is your guardian angel if she's older,
and your constant shadow if she's younger.
She's your best friend in all your endevours.
Your confidant, protector of your heart,


All these years I've spent without you
physically in my life, but you clearly are
an inspiration. Lately I've tried to be
what you were and what your spirit still


Everytime I see your face whether in
person or in thought, I feel the need to
smile. You bring joy to my heart, a
beam of sunlight to my face, and


I'm wishing that this day would
have never come, the day, today,
that you went away.

One Cold Day

She hasn't seen him for
days, weeks, even months.
The day she went to see him
will be one she will never

Walk Away

Too many times has something held me back from achieving something great. I almost stopped my life waiting for your next move; a move I'd still be standing in line for.

I try to tell myself my life is greater than you, greater than this facade we both went through. I've now released the pressure of you and walked away.
