Constant Strife

Poem By Emily Angel

My feelings are strange
To my own heart.

I ponder and ponder
To find I’ll never
Know the reason why.

The sky looks the same
So does my habitat.

But deep inside I find
Something is changed.

And the change, it is
The strangest and the greatest
I ever experienced.

I am caught up
In a fight, the very fight
Between hope and despair.

For God, I plead
There be an end to it.

‘Cause I can’t take it
Even a moment more.

I begged despair
And did plead to hope
To stop this war.

Yet they play with my life
As if it were a mere plaything.

And none of them ready
To step down for me.

Forgetting My Dream

A beautiful dream you are,
Yet I know not what to do.
My heart is in a tumult.
I die for an answer.

Inner Reflections

Never have I told myself
Life is but milk and roses.
I daren't dream

An Advice

Look into your hearts, O men,
And count the good things
You ever thought for your fellow beings.

I Love Him

How could this be?
What a sweet sensation can
All of this be?

Let Me Love You

You keep my light burning bright
Even in my darkest night.

You have me safe in your arms,


I'm drenched by the rain,
Yet I'm not cold.
For I'm freezing inside
Of my heart.
