Poem By Mandi Meyer

Drifting through the rainbow sands
The gem-colored grains slip through my hands.
I fly up high above the ground
And look at this beautiful realm with no sound.
Crystal pillars to the right
Just inside my line of sight.
I turned around to look behind me
And was amazed by what I could see.
A sapphire castle that reached the sky
Towards it I begin to fly.
Coming closer I now spied
A crystal garden to the side.
A beautiful lady emerged as I touched down
Dressed in an equally beautiful gown.
Her gown was a blue so light
It could almost be mistaken for white.
Her hair was the darkest black
And cascaded in curls down past her back.
Her eyes were a vivid blue
That matched the castle’s hue.
She held out a pendant of jade
But then the world began to fade.
As it once again came clear
I found I was back here.
In bed alone with my thoughts
And the peace my dream had wrought.

Broken down, cold and lonely.
Can't you see you are the only
One who makes me feel this way,
Like I can face another day.


Left alone I'm crying here,
No one sees me dying here.
You didn't care when you tore me apart,
Why should I think you cared from the start?


It's this or it's that but I really don't care.
I'm only concerned with the pain we both bear.
Ultimately the cost of blood is paid,
But I can't help that it's left me afraid.

Only One

You're the only one I need to make me feel that I'm alive,
And you're the only one I need to give me the strength to survive.
You're the only one I need to comfort and hold me when I'm sad,
And you're the only one I need to tease and love me when I'm glad.


Crushed beneath my shattered dreams
How cold and hurtful the world now seems.
With broken wings I cannot fly,
But without hope I'd rather die.


I've opened myself so much to you
But you still can't see what I need you to.
You still can't tell when I'm in pain
Unless it's so perfectly, obviously plain.
