I am a writer. My passion is poetry. I feel words connect people together and help us to understand the feelings we share.

"Those Memories Of You" by Dolly Parton, Emmylou Harris, and Linda Rondstadt

Source

When she lays her head down to sleep,
memories haunt her,
with thoughts of him, flooding her mind,
teardrops filling her eyes.

Her heart splits wide open,
no bandage is big enough
to stop the constant bleeding,
longing for the truth.

Her tormented, restless soul
stirs in the still of the night,
hoping to erase these echoes
dancing in her head.

She wonders if he feels
this nightmare too,
or if it is only
a movie for one.

"Little Do You Know" by Alex and Sierra

      I admire your poetry. You manage to tell a story in depth with very effective imagery, as in your second verse. So vivid! And touching!
