The Real Reason 2

Poem By Elizabeth Castleberry

And now I'm stuck here
With no way to escape
Sunk up to my nape
I'm overwhelmed by fear

That I've built my own prison
If I escape, my world will combust
Indistinquishable from the dust
Any current happiness is done

The more I struggle, the more I sink
Maybe I just need one decisive leap
Straight out of the deep
So should I just act instead of stop and think?

I Hate Myself

I hate that you fooled me
With your infectios smile

I hate that you told me you loved me


My arms ache
My fingers bleed
But I can't stop the music
Can't quench the need

And answered it
To hear a weak sigh:
I love you. Click.


Rain streaming down the window
The sky has a deep blue glow
The soothing beat gets slowly faster
The night becomes a blurr

The Dance

Play me a sweet song
So I can dance
This is where I belong

Random Rose

As I was walking
Out to the parking lot.
In the most random spot,
