Poem By Kendell Cochrane

I do not want
To die today,
That fact is big,
For me,
In a world where
I can feel things
Just as well as I can see.

I know I've got
A madness although
Harmless I'll admit,
These multicoloured thoughts
Are not so subtle
When they hit.

I do not need
Prescription pills,
I've waltz'd with them before,
The thought alone,
So numbing,
I've barricaded that door.

I'm here to find
A calmness,
My promise, if you will,
Whether upon rough waters
Or in bed where
I lay still.

Sifting through emotions,
Finding gold in every scoop,
From love to short lived friendships,
They fall under the same group;
Of people who have
Helped me become
Who I am today,
Whether here or there
I'm grateful we connected
In some way.

I know life's a long journey
Where self trueness
Is a must,
And decisions, sometime painful,
Need unquestionable trust.

Goldie Locks

I've made a few beds,
I've layed in them all,
Fell short with a few,
With others, too tall


I've thought about heroin,
The rush I've heard she gives,
The way she makes problems vanish
While seeping into your veins,


We don't know how much time we have,
Yet still work to the bone,
To provide a life we think we need,
For those we leave alone,


A certain feeling used
To suffocate my thoughts,
Sometimes it still does,
Leaving me in a blank

Confessions Of Love

Confessions of love
written onto paper,
remaining blank while
Diving deep into thought.


Words spoken in silence
are often meant
for the heart,
or mind,
