»Distant Places«

by Casey Samantha Boshoff, April 29, 2009

They say life is so great,
Well what happened to mine?
Where are the flowers in the spring,
And the loving friends?
The sun doesn't shine anymore
Its just rain, always rain,
No warm bright days
To swim in the pool,
Always cold, windy days
No place to go.

I fell isolated in a cold dungeon
Not knowing when things will change,
But wondering why
They say life is so great,
I'm losing it, all of it,
My closest friends
The people I care for most.

I don't have enough energy,
I need to get away,
The noisy people-anger me,
The funny people-annoy me,
The friendly people-scare me,
They won't leave,
They've already left.

I live in a cold distant world
Where there's no place for me,
No warm love for people to stay,
It's just cold and distant,
Afraid to say hello,
Scared to lose another,
Another what? Friend or enemy?
No, just someone I care for,
I've ended up in a distant place.

If darkness came walking / through my door, / And took me by the hand / so I could blink no more, / Would you know that He loves you? / Would you know that He cares? / Would you know that He sent me / to thank you for always being there? / / If you slowly begin to cry / and realise my body no longer has heat  sign in to read more »


»The day I die«

What would happen to you? / When I stop breathing? / When I lose the rhythm of my heart beat? / When you can't hear the words I speak? / When my eyes don't open / And you can't gaze into my soul so deep? / When my body is cold / And you can't use me for heat? / The day I die / What would happen to you?  sign in to read more »


»10 wishes«

If I could catch a star tonight, / And use it as my bedroom light. / If I could fly to the moon and back, / Only to come home with cheese filled sack. / If I could laugh uncontrollably, / Only to fall flat next to a Frankenstein bee. / If I could make sweet money grow on trees, / And not have to pay in  sign in to read more »
