Poem By Laura Dunne

The coffin that encloses me
embraces my broken soul
it can stand against the winds of time
never lets me become alive
i can see out of this coffin i have built
but all anyone else can see
is a coffin sprung from guilt

The shadows of a broken girl
cast over my newfound home
echo's of her playing with the boys
she grows before my eyes
and i wish i was her muse
to help her become more than
a broken soul in her own coffin built

...And Then The Screaming Starts

I don't know how you do the things you do
if i'd known i'd never had been with you
you don't know how to treat me
being with someone meant nothing i see

Crimson Regrets

Like a pinprick on my finger
i squeeze to see the blood escape
eventually the pain subsides
a scar is all that remains

The End

scars etched into skin
shadows of what lies within
a bloodless body lies on the floor
her childhood friend, alive no more

Don'T Let Me Fall

You dropp my hand
and turn to leave
you should have stayed
but things aren't that easy


When I was a girl i said
when i fall in love
the fireworks will explode
and those sparks will fly
