Poem By Brian Potthast

What’s the use, why should I try?
If I push any farther I’ll lose my mind
I’ve gone as far as I can go
I’ve learned the most I’ll ever know
It seems giving up is the best chance
To leave this place I can’t enhance
The worst seems to come from the best
Bringing them close letting them in
Allowing them to know the secrets hidden
Behind closed doors wanting to be kept
Away from the world where it slept
When let in the walls tumble down
The things kept hidden now show as a crown
What once was a secret now a weakness
To bring the mighty to the ground
All this comes from the softest sound
A simple whisper from those let in
Implodes the trust once stored within.

Under The Sunset Sky

Sitting under the sunset sky
Laying around I wonder why
You value me so much more
Than any other you’ve met before


Looking at you I see
Many different signs of beauty.
One of these may be
The eyes through which you see.


A secret lost in the darkness is now found
Because of his grace now I’m bound
He walks with me through every day
He sticks up for me in every way

Her Eyes

Your big beautiful eyes
Like a deep brown ocean
Full of hope and admiration
I see beauty in your eyes


when with her
time flys without a sigh
one thing is for sure
i cannot sit idly by

One Step Back

I sit back and wonder why
Fish must swim while birds can fly
Two creatures of this world we’re in
That don’t get mixed with greed lust or sin
