Out Into The Sunshine

Poem By Holly Jamestone

Simply let go and let it break into a million pieces if need be
It may be only a thousand pieces and seem like many more
Sit next to it, kneel beside it, sweep the shrapnel into your apron
Carefully holding the pieces next to your heart as you sit by the fire

Relive each breach and the messages therefrom as the tears flood your neck
Cry at the top of your lungs until you get the hiccups or your eyes bulge
And gently notice that the stack of regrets are no longer piled in the rafters
As flowing drapes from the now open window carry lessons learned

A Poem Inside My Heart

Inside my heart tucked neatly
Under all the things I've been through
Amid the woes, beneath the smiles
And joyful times I've clung to

We'Ll Meet At Heaven's Door

We knew she’d leave us in the Spring
That it was day-to-day
With family near and Angels close
She gently sailed away

Lost Love

Nothing is more painful than lost love
It blindsides you and weeps into your cells as
Its takes you to an involuntary place
And sweeps pieces of you into a corner


Broken man with eyes so vacant
Heart so tarnished, scars so deep
Waning patience, tattered memories
Rancid thoughts too spoiled to keep

A Butterfly

I buried us, it took awhile
I couldn't seem to cope
Kept looking back, more emptiness
While yearning for some hope


Even though the pain is present
It will go away
Fading with the test of time
Not words that friends can say
