Gone; Know; My Mother; Love Me; I Saw...

by Jesus Andrade (author's profile)



I was gone
Left to a place far-far away
Where darkness is calming
Where ghosts are more than souls
Where hearts are free to roam

I was gone
Trapped in my mind
Long-long ago
When my escape was a pill
Drugs and alcohol

I was gone
Gone with the wind
Unannounced to most
Alone with my remorse

I was gone
A dark spot on the wall
Placed on hold
Till I could scream
No more


Know this
I was exposed
Cold feet on the dirt
Chilled to my bones
Crystalized water around my soul
Tried to step
Streets left me no choice
Standing still was hard work
Iced toes
Kept me frozen
Between four corners
Placas on walls
just know

My Mother

Have you seen my mother?
She's beautiful, intelligent and strong.

Haven't seen her in ages
But remember her attributes just so
The woman who fed me when hungry
And clothed me when cold.
My mother
The woman who loves me
No matter how wrong
She who gifted my father
With a son
His first born

Have you seen her?
She's beautiful, intelligent and strong.
That's how I will forever remember my mother
No matter how long.

Love Me

Love me
Like your lips told me
Like you meant every word

Love me
The way that I love you
When I wake

Love me
The way that I love you
Through out my day

Love me
Dream about me
As I dream about you

Love me
Keep me in your heart
In mine I will forever keep you

Love me...

I Saw...

I saw you again
A bird in a cage
A worm in a bottle

A dreamless child

An ancient scroll
It's' contents seen
Revealed to a world
Who's neglected you
A child without song
No laughter
Nor giggles

Everything once his gone

I saw you
Saw what you've become
A smileless clown
To the outside world
A world unknown to us both
