A Poem Just For You

Poem By Clarence Thomas

The Shade's hand beckons,
'Tis time enow for me,
With truths and deeds unreckoned:
To delay the tryst.
Wrought the willow-wisp
Fleeting with grace,
Fate calls the tryst
All men must face.
Being was bold and quick;
To live his fill,
Who knew where to pick?
Who had the will?
I need not mourn
For my child.
Life will be bourne
For him, yet a while.
All was writ before
Man had tapped the till.
Angels guard the door,
'Til he pays the bill.
Tell the determined Shade,
I'll come when my dues are paid.

Lost Within

Lost I wander in this self-inflicted night,
No moon or stars in the sky give me light.
Wearily, I stumble and fall aimlessly,
Longing only for someone to rescue me.

Remember Me

Remember me when I’m no longer with you
When regretfully, I can no longer stay
Remember the great times we’ve had
When I’m no longer a part of your day


Sometimes, I want to laugh
Sometimes, I want to cry
Sometimes, I’m happy to be alive
Sometimes, I want to die


So badly I needed you now,
But you couldn’t see somehow.
In you I put all of my hope,
To you I clung like a rope.


I’m tired of always running away,
When all I ever wanted was a place to stay.

I’m tired of being surrounded by others in life,

A Hopeless Reflection

You stand starring into that mirror on the wall
Watching me suffer as I wither away
Reassuring me in the end, everything will be okay
