“We grow to give new meaning to old words” - Jessica (podcast speaker)

New poems encapsulated modern day struggles but no struggle hasn’t been heard of before.
Poems are time capsules that were never dated.
They were buried in the past but remain intact in the present.

    Poem: Empathy

    Poem: Empathy

    I’m not a bad person,
    I do feel what you feel.
    It’s just unusual to unreel,
    The emotions that I feel.

    I want to show you I care,
    But all I do is stare.
    Wondering why your speaking bare,
    Tears everywhere.

    I don’t understand touch,
    Why it’s necessary,
    Are words not enough.

    For me to ask how you are,
    Is a blank question.
    Cause you’ll respond,
    With human convention.

    Tell me what you want,
    I’m no good with lies.
    It’s more puzzling for me,
    Than games of spies.

    I magnify what your trying to tell,
    But I’m in so deep,
    I fall under a spell.
    I can’t turn away,
    My mind in another realm,
    Trying to make sense of your show and tell.

    Poem: Mothers Grave

    Poem: Mothers Grave

    I see the dark as I open my eyes,
    I dream of clear blue skies.
    I see Gouls and goblins of the human kind,
    Scary thoughts pop up inside.

    My inner thoughts have demons,
    But I push them far away.
    To another land,
    For them to stay.

    They will never get me,
    For I am hidden in a secret place.
    In the warmth of my mother’s arms,
    In her resting place.

    I am trapped.
    Locked away from the world,
    No one can hear my screams,
    From the underworld.

    I can hear faint crying,
    Above the grave.
    The tread of a man,
    With a worn out spade.

    I’d like to be let out now,
    I’ve changed my mind.
    My mother’s warmth,
    Has slowly died.

    She left me a bony kiss,
    An indent of heavenly bliss.
    I am forever here now,
    Encased in my own remiss.

    Poem: Wake Up Call

    Poem: Wake Up Call

    I’m downing in my thoughts,
    I make up love as if there’s never enough,
    I am always crushed by my imagination,
    It and reality never match up.



    My wake up call,
    Isn’t a bird or a song,
    An annoying tune or mother’s humm.

    It’s when reality and me just don’t fit,
    I get hurt and hurt by human wit,
    Telling me my lies don’t exist.

    I like to lie in bed,
    With two pillows,
    Blanked over head,
    And dream about another life,
    One with less pain,
    And more love at night.

    My wish is for one day,
    The blinds would unreel,
    And I see what I want to feel,
    My dreams becoming real.

    Poem: Night Walks

    Poem: Night Walks

    In the mist of the night,
    The cold whispers his song.
    It gives you goosebumps,
    As you walk along.
    A straight narrow footpath,
    Bats flying through the air,
    An icy chill,
    A cold hard stare.
    Figures passing by,
    Shadows of the trees.
    Woodland animals scurrying,
    They’re all awake you see.
    Lampposts flickering,
    Stars shining.
    Headlights are a glow,
    Leaves falling.
    Mornings calling,
    Time to go home.

    Poem: Monkey’n Around

    Poem: Monkey’n Around

    Monkey’n Around

    Stay Banana stay,
    You make me happy everyday.

    As I swing from tree to tree,
    I’m as happy as can be,
    With you right next to me.

    So I sing a song,
    And you come along,
    Looking happier than me,
    To play with thee.

    Poem: Last Wish

    Poem: Last Wish

    Last Wish

    I’m sick,
    I’m dying,
    But I just wanted to say,
    You take my breath away.

    I have 10 seconds left,
    The timer is on,
    I want to spend every second,
    Dancing in your arms.

    As you twirl me along,
    All I want is to hear,
    As you point to your heart,
    Baby I want you right here.
