I Am, But A Man

Poem By Lee Stewart

The world's much darker in my mind
Everywhere I start to find
Love is gone and hopeless days go by
Every day's darker than the last

Much more lonely than the past
Each new week more of me must die
There are people torn and broken down
Many others stand around

Their hearts ache yet nobody knows why
I see them standing in the rain
Trying to live through their pain
They start to think Heaven is a lie

But in my darker world normal people live
Normal people give and take and live in harmony
In my darker world people can move on
They start to get along and talk and remain peacefully

My darker world is only dark to me
And my darker world is where I like to be
Color fades to black and grey
Every day's a darker day

Perception changed, can't keep my pain inside
People ask me how I've been
I tell the truth now and then
Most of the time my emotions hide

I've been hurt and isolated
Loneliness makes me frustrated
Don't mean to but once again I've lied
I don't let my heart open up

And like a bug trapped in a cup
I suffocate and now my soul has died

A Deeper Love

My love does not fall like rain drops in the puddle,
All fighting to be part of the show,
My love runs deeper than that.
As my love, I do not let it go.

Do I Need Love?

True beauty comes from within,
Sometimes to see, you have to be listening,
This can also help you feel,
Though what we feel, is not always real,

The More I Started

Step into my existence,
The elements, the one true contestants,
Could it be just that you’re investments?
In my world of fun.

Another Day Of Heaven

I woke in the morning to a brand new day,
Our love still forming; and you say,
How sweet it is, just to see,
That you’re here; here with me.
