[ mood | angry ]

This poem is based off a recent event in my town. It made me so angry I wanted to write a poem about it. Here goes.


eighty years old
they saw her
fragile, frail
legally blind.
stopped her on the pretense
of asking for directions
how do you get to Freya?
they knocked her down;
yanked her purse away from her.
and she lies in the hospital
lucky to be alive.
the police searched through
the crack houses, seedy bars,
scummy motels to find the
guilty party.
and they were at Applebee's
drinking martinis to celebrate
their 'victory'.
she and her husband
have to sell their house
move into assisted care
to pay her medical bills.
and yet the victims
the men sick and twisted
enough to rob an old lady
who could hardly see
sat at Applebee's
drinking martinis
celebrating their ill-gotten

Hiya all, I'm new here and this is the first poem I ever wrote. [18 Apr 2003|06:54am]


(Mary-Kate McNamera, 2ooo)

Long lost thoughts, memories of the past --
You made them surface,
But they didn't last.

Friend or foe?
It's both the same.
Those you love are those who bring the deepest pain.
It is a shame

Tell me how it is to see me suffer,
How does it feel to be the one who's killing me?
Can you see the shock in my dying eyes?
I've been so happy that I didn't notice how you drove the knife inside of me -- oh so slow.
That was until now that I'm feeling how I'm losing my life.
I hope you're satisfied, now that my lifeless form is crumbling to the ground.

Blowing out the flame,
Driving me insane.

My last moments -- you're witnessing them.
Go on, keep on watching me.
We both have smiles on our faces -- it's over.
My last thought: I hope I'll finally find my peace...

Watch Me Drown [21 Jan 2003|04:09pm]

Why do I flee? Why do I run?
From those who show me only love
Why do I stick? Why do I sink?
With those who couldn't give a fuck
Who treat me like crap
I keep going back
To penetrate my lonliness
So this is it, this is it
This is my punishment
Watch me drown. Watch me die.
If you don't care, then why should I?

Why are we still here? [09 Jan 2003|07:00pm]

Death...you're so near
You leave us in a flood of tears
And let so many others die
It's not written in the sky
I don't see a heaven
I don't see a hell
All I see is pain and sorrow
And I won't see you tomorrow
Is death something we should fear?
Why are we the ones still here?

Angel with a guitar,

In a myriad of color and hue,

Your melody so fine,

That my tears have crossed the line,

Into a spiral of sadness,

Into an abyss of shock...

And into an array of hope,

That we will meet someday...

Until then, i will wait,

And listen to your same old song,

That changed my life not so long ago.

*Bows* Spank you very much *Walks off w/ GIR from 'invader ZIM'*

simplicity... [07 Jan 2003|07:38pm]

[ mood | bouncy ]

the pounding in my head
like the knocking on my door
the simplicity of this message
can never be unwrapped
the broken glass is scattered on the ground
not knowing where to go
memories of childhood flash past my eyes
then i remember
that im sitting in this class
im here all alone
i open the door to see whos there
-its you
