I am a senior Chemical Engineering major. While I might be a total chemistry nerd, I love to write. I've been writing for as long as I can remember, but I've never really done anything with my poems except hide them away. My blog is made up of poems I wrote years ago and ones I will write tomorrow.


I am left Alone with my thoughts. They keep me up at night. The dark shadows Are all that’s left After you’ve drifted. Drifted off To a new world, That I can’t reach. You’ve escaped, And worse yet, With my heart. My heart, It sleeps next to you, Wanting to be close to you, Leaving me here, To struggle my way, Through the dark. The dark, Harder than one Might think, to hide You can’t hide, When you’re all That exists. Existence, Is there a point When my mind Lives separate From my heart? And off you go. Go to rest. What I would give, For a thoughtless sleep, Or for you to stay With me, to Calm the angry ocean. The ocean, Flooding my brain, With fearful waters, And damaging waves. It won’t stop until Morning rises again. Again, understand, That I need you To distract me, Distract my mind, And hopefully trick it Into not drowning me tonight.

A brain for science and a heart for words - terrific combo for some brilliant writing.

I'll try to catch up.

so lovely poem sample...I shall not be

It was shocking to learn
When you turned
Your back and left forever
My mind was seized with fear

Nights have turned barren
Hell took over the heaven
My heart was shattered
Even I was little afraid

No, I will blame no one
But try to learn
Why did it happen to me?
Even though I was true

samples... nice one...I fear shadow

I fear shadow
And don't allow
It to grow larger
I certainly fear

I bear pain
And remain disturbed
With thoughts
I ought to make it right

As the night approaches
I try to reach
With thoughts covering you
And I follow through

Why can’t I close on?
And find the option
To remain with you
I feel this is true

The key is in your hand
Try to be a real friend
Come to my rescue
And offer love' due

It may help you gain readership to space out the poetry you place on the site, as each successive one replaces the last one before it on the blog entries. Nice, cohesive style you have though, and they all come together so well.
