Sadness

Poem By Jordan Jacobs

The light fades to darkness
As I recede into the shadows

I sit there remembering…….
The light in her eyes, the glow of her smile
The joy in her voice, the radiance of her face

The way she kept me for the shadows

I sit there regretting………
My fear to tell her how I felt
That I let her slip in to someone else’s arms

The light fades to darkness
As I recede into the shadows

I sit there missing……..
The smile that played at my lips
every time I saw her face
The way my heart raced
every time she held my hand

But………

Light fades to darkness
As I recede into the shadows

Behind A Smile

Alone I cry, hiding it behind a laugh
Alone I remorse, hiding it behind a smile

My loneliness so deep it cuts into my soul

Mourning Mist

The shadow emerging from the morning mist
Raises inside of me a storm
Of anger and sadness
That swirls in me like a tornado

Light...Dark

The light fades to darkness
As I recede into the shadows

There to live. There to die

My Life

My life the Storm
The harsh cold
The unforgiving wind
The thunder that wakes me at night

The Real Me

Hidden inside of me is
A little boy curled in a ball
Crying
Hiding it behind a laugh
