Release My Mind

Poem By Stephanie van Oudtshoorn

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

Your only purpose is to torment
playing with my mind
pushing the boundries
and trying the sanity

You have no logic
or systematic approach
attacking the light
held within a soul

Your name is darkness
Your purpose is terrible
You release no mind
And wish to encage all

Comments about Release My Mind

your name is darkness says it all......beautiful, powerful, clear poem.
Great poem and I enjoy how you said it with passion. Somehow, I don't know maybe this poem can be talking about being a captive and wanting to be free from someone's hand! Sincerely, Aaron Rigodon

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

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
