Shadows Of Forgotten Dreams

Poem By Lana May Hamlin

Once we had a love so strong,
Nothing we could ever do was considered wrong.
We were everything we dreamed love would be,
Now I lie in these tears, in this sea.
You told me you loved me and I believed you,
My heart wanting to believe it was all true.
But you lied and it came out in the end,
All this time I thought you were my friend.
How could I have been so blind?
Was I so desperate for the love I didn’t find?
I honestly thought what we had was real,
Every kiss a promise, a seal.
A promise of eternal faithfulness,
A life of constant happiness.
You had other plans, now I see,
That our 'love' was never meant to be.
You took the last piece of my heart,
Left me broken and not knowing if it was real from the start.
I’m living in the shadows of our dreams,
No one hears my cries for help, its seems.
You’ve moved on and I’m trying too,
But I’m left shattered and alone by you.
Not thinking I’m good enough for anyone,
What’s left of my heart is on a constant run.
I don’t want to be hurt like this anymore,
So I say good-bye to love, to my heart, my core.

Smile at me baby, just one more time
Hold me close and remind me your mine
Look into my eyes and please see
All you need in your life is me

Never Stop The Search

I close my eyes and fight back the tears
That well up in my eyes.
Everyday I face my fears
Because I don’t have you by my side.

True Love

I know I’m the last person you want to listen to
But listen up because what I’m going to say is all true
How can you walk away from something so strong
What happened, what went wrong?

~stal3 & L{iss~

Like a river
Like a fog
I’m enveloped in what you say
Questioning your every word

Never-Ending Battle

My hands start shaking,
My heart speeds up it's beating,
My knees go weak,
This is what the thought of you does.

Our Heaven

Sitting in the spot we loved so much
My body craving for your sweet touch
My heart swelling with the thought of you
Memories linger from the dreams we made true
