Regret

Poem By Cheré Mason

Pitter-patter, pitter-patter
Rain drizzles down my soul
A slight shower turns to a storm
While my hands are cupped like a bowl

The wind rustles between my bones
As icy waters rise around my feet
My heart picks up its pace
Sounding like an ancient drum beat

Layer by layer I begin to die
As my skin starts to curl
The blood in my veins turns to ice
And the real torture unfurls

The truth rises like a newborn day
An open book of unwritten pages
I stare helplessly as hidden hands tighten round my neck
My body begins to warp, as if I had been through the ages

Suddenly I return to the isolation of my room
I am on my back staring at the ceiling
A needle in my arm, a mask over my face
And for me, machines are breathing

A Friend Is A Friend

A friend is a friend
This much is true
Best friends we were
Me and you

Fish Fever

This week end I went fishing
A fish in mind to catch
I went wishing, wishing, wishing
To catch a perfect catch

Daddy

In the pouring rain I see her standing
The cold wind blowing against her naked legs
She used to be such a grand thing
Before daddy sent her to work in the kegs

The Path Of Rain

A shower of relief falls on me,
Drenching me.
The hair on my face clings to my cheeks,
Running the black course of wet paths

Dance Of Addiction

The grass dances to the rhythmic beat
Of wind toiling high in the evergreen
Moving with ease under the strobed moonlight
Dappled images swaying in their sight

The Strength Of Glass

The depth of your touch can never be explained
Nor the intensity of your kiss
The vigor in your love is unequaled
As is the passion glowing in your eyes
