My Sweet Sin

Poem By Mandi Higginbotham

Can't you see I hold you
Deep inside my heart?
As consequences rip us apart
I try to tell you honestly
I love you more than life
But you, you hold the anger
And I, I am cursed to look
Look into another's eyes
And not yours, my love
Can't you see the Lie
Was my shield I held
Only to keep you...
I felt secure with it
It tight in my grasp
As it's what I've known
Known for so long...
I love you and now this.
What is to become of us
Now that I've lain my shield
At your feet and exposed
My bleeding heart to you?
Tell me, my sweet...
What shield do you hold to me?

Why Do You Love Me?

As I fight through my mind
I have to wonder why
You say you love me.
You don’t know where I’ve been

The Rain

The rain is falling all around
And the puddles are growing
As I stand in the flood
Letting my tears fall unnoticed


...And is it right that the waves
That rage against my weakening heart
Are from the typoon that you create?
How can I love a tempest

Catching My Tears

Why can't this be a dream?
Yet would the angels bring me such tragedy?
A single tear slides down my cheek
As a dark hand gently brushes it away.

I'M Lucky

I wish to weave you a poem of my thoughts
Filled with unspoken, unused words.
Words that have never lied
Or been used many times
