Hiding From Memories

Poem By Vallerie Lobell

Hiding from memories, that's what I do,
Trying so hard to get over you,
Like flashbacks from nightmares, they hit and run,
I know this misery has only begun,

They buzz in my mind like angry bees,
Bringing me down to my knees,
I don't have the strength to get back up,
Of this thing called love, I've had enough,

My heart is too tender to be touched by another,
The flame burning for you, I cannot smother,
I am being haunted by these memories of you,
I run but they chase me, that's what they do,

Like stars that shine bightly then fade away,
I feel my light grow dimmer each day,
And soon I shall vanish just like the dew,
Hiding from memories, trying to get over you,

I am so touched Ms Lobell...Very unique poem in a way that it tends to describe the anti-nostalgic theme with deep seeded melancholy in it......

My Dearest Love

Why do I feel the way I do?
What makes this love so fresh and new?
Had I never felt this way before?
Ever dreamed what Fate held in store?

A Prayer

Help me hold on Lord,
Down on my knees,
Each day I sink lower,
Help me up, please,

I just started putting poems? on the site,
I check first thing in the morning, last thing at night,
To see if anybody has been touched or made to smile,
Or in my shoes has walked that mile,

Beckon To Me

Beckon to me once more,
And awaken my drowsy heart,
For it will take some tender urgings,
We're too far and too long apart,

Who is this one who calls my name?
And always sets my soul aflame,
Who's this one I can't forget?
I've loved since the day we met?

Small Tribute To Crocodile Man

Australia Zoo must be reeling,
I myself overcome with feeling,
You were so fearless and brave,
All the animals you would save,
