Halfway

FREE WRITING

Halfway between the sky and sea,
I know you're there waiting for me.
Where the sun goes down
To end another day.
I know somehow we'll find a way.

Through the tears and doubts
we'll find our sun.
And from our past the good will come.

For one day we'll look back
With a smile on the face.
Knowing that we won the race.
And halfway between the sky and sea
Our dreams will become a reality.

Yesterday

FREE WRITING

I want to escape to yesterday,
Where everything went a better way.
There  all my laughs were true and real.
It was only happiness that I could feel.

The place where the pain I feel now,
Was yet to be discovered,
And all loss of smiles were unknown,
No feelings of being alone.

Yesterday, a place I want to be,
But a place I'll never again see.
I must learn to move on,
Before the break of dawn,
Because that is...

The pain a smile hides

PROMPT: Poetry and Spoken Word Competition: 2021

The pain a smile hides
Of a sincere soul once happy
Of a whole heart now broken
And the right words unspoken.

The tear that slips unnoticed
A tear that burns deep down
One salty little drop,
A drop in which you drown.

Another day will pass
Yet no one sees the truth-
A shattered piece of glass,
Never to be whole again.

Will there ever be peace
Or happiness, maybe even love
Or will the pain a smile hides ...
