Pass On By

Poem By Stephanie van Oudtshoorn

when you see me
pass me by
but pass quietly,
slowly and carefully

the road you walk
is littered with my hopes
so take care where you step
and step not on my hopes and dreams

simply pass me by
pass not by my eyes
but by my heart
for my eyes see you not

cast not your hopes
upon the road with the rest
but hold them close
and pass on by

Tears Screaming To Be Let Loose

as my tears scream to be let loose
you pretend to be sorry
when you open a door
only a crack

Blank Pages Before You

It begins as a tinkling,
glowing feeling.
Swelling within you;
growing inside

Release My Mind

I wish you would leave
let my body be at peace
Release my mind!
from its caged existance

For You That I Love

For you that I love
I would plunge myself into the deep unknown
and hope that love alone
would be enough to keep me afloat.

Darkness And Light

Torn between darkness and light
In the darkness you can hide
creep away into yourself
It's where you're safe


this silence
crushing in on me
from all sides
it seems unimaginable
