Fleeting Fame

Fleeting Fame short poem

Photo by crsan


Happiness I had and you hid me away
Freedom was mine, now there’s no sign
I was shining my light and you burned it out
Subduing me to the point of nothing and changing my route
In the desolation that surrounds
There is silence, no sound
Where is God in all of this? All I yearn for is bliss
To smile again and be my own best friend
My dreams dissolved like snow, now there’s no glow
I am alone and undone, I hope you’re happy, you won!

The Arts have always inspired me. I began exploring the art of writing poetry at 9 years old. It became one of my passions because it allowed me to express myself and respond to my inner promptings in a positive way. I found that as with any art form there are no right or wrong ways of creating. This is the beauty of art...there are no limitations. The only requirement is that the poet be courageous enough to release his inhibitions and follow his heart and imagination. Along my path in life, I have discovered that writing poetry is , at its most, a truly liberating experience that not only reveals the nature surrounding us, but in reflecting the inner life of mankind.

Few Moments Of Fame short poem

A word amidst verses, Coming to life briefly When the reader leases His mind and time solely. That moment of glory, Is transient like you; An unknown for many Very common for few. Alone it’s no meaning, A tale not

Fleeting Love short poem

You sought my heart out, Back when it beat for another. You opened my eyes to truth so blunt, The love I pined for, would never gather. You watched me hang myself, Holding onto a flimsy web of hope. And
