Sniper

Poem By Liz Wiseman

A scope closing in
On words floating from her mouth
Switch on the dim
Stop any tears from flowing out

Emotions hit the ground
In the fetal position I can think
Inquire surviving another round
Can I manage if I sink

Cells click in my head
'Turn your defences on'
Flex muscles to take the hit
Find any weapons you have to draw

I've sailed without a crew
Through seas and storm filled waves
It's all I know to do
It's the life I didn't make

So leave as quick as you can
I don't need any dead weight
To me you're no longer a man
Take whatever you can take.

Images fill my brain
With what I wish I could do
Run to him, talk to him
Have him tell the truth

I never thought it would come to this
Me driving you crazy
You finally caving in

You're everywhere I travel
Always by my side
Whenever I am laughing
People know that you're nearby

'Dream of me, '
'I always do.'
That's my problem
My problem is you

The Secret To

Every day I see a girl.
Everything about her should shine

Naieve

I look at my things
Attached with my memories
My hopes and my dreams
That are figures of history
