I am Sharliemarkham, here's a collection of my poetry (Check the right hand side); let me know whatcha think.
Lost: Unhappy, but not sad- Unstable, going mad. Our "small problems", In this big world- Our ignorance is lost! Yet no truths unfurled. Personal hatred, No love lost, "Make me feel better!"- But what is the cost? Do you speak your thoughts, What, and stand alone? This hypocritical world; Worries only for flesh and bone. Better to be lost in darkness, Trailing through the night- Than be the adventurous animal' Staring down headlights. Her: Gazing at your face, As I scribble away- Transfixed in place, Ensnared by that we choose not to say. So just smile. Please, just smile. For your entrapping lips are my only get away. Dim Lit Room: Everyday I awake in a dimly lit room, By a tick and tock the darkness looms, There is nothing but an impending door in sight, With a small intricate keyhole; ah, the source of light. Everyday I peer into that keyhole, Unable to focus on the secret it holds, A light so bright it seems to transcend, A truth so strong; the beginning… and the end. I ran my hands over the cold hard door, With an innate desire, a thirst to know more, My hand clasps a warm hourglass, It is a lavish knocker; not a handle to help me pass. The hourglass knocker, the tick and the tock, With every grain of sand that drops, I merrily swing it back and forth, But fearfully I prevent it from hitting the door. Today I made a grand mistake, I allowed the hour glass to hit the door and break, The glass shattered with a concoction of cracks. Abruptly, the room vanished along with the facts. There was an ecstasy of sounds, lights, colours- Vibrations, sensations. No longer were there boundaries. A caged animal no more, No longer blocked from the truths behind the door
