Welp here goes some of my random poems for y'all to tell me what ya think.

The Word Goodbye
I hate saying goodbye. This simple word stabs your heart like a dagger. This word bends your world like a hammer to a nail. This word burns deep in your everything as a fire burns paper. This word makes you cry like you have never cried before. This word tears you up like a torn letter. But then there are the other meanings of Goodbye. Goodbye can mean its time to start over. Goodbye can mean its time to move on. Goodbye can mean let's put the past behind us. We try to move on and its hard for awhile. But your heart will heal. Your world will be bent back into place. The fire will be put out. Your tears will dry. You will be ok again. I hate saying goodbye but I know I need to in order to move on.

Past By Kathleen Steward
When you hear people talking of the past you hear things such as, "She is haunted by her past" or "He never let go of the past". But the past can be a good thing. You would not be where you are without it. Without the strain and the pain or the sorrow or the fear, my dear, you would not be who you are today, I would not be who I am today. I am not proud of where I have come from but, I am proud of how far I will go. Its takes courage, kindness, self-control, and above all, love, to get through it. Don't let the past stalk you like a lion hunting down its prey. Don't let it scare you like a storm scares a child. Instead, stand up to it! "I am not who I was then and never will be!" I have been hurt by those hard mistakes, but they showed me how to try again. When you hear people talking of the past say instead "It showed me how to live".

=D> :inlove: :cheerleader: Wow KitKat, these are GREAT! I love "The Word Goodbye", it's so realistic. What inspired you to write these (if it's not too personal)?

Haha, thanks so much dear keet! Yeah, its a little personal. Let's just say people do what people want to do and sometimes it hurts. But it's all good. Haha!

Here are some more of my poems.

Nothing makes you realize how lonely you are until you cry out for help but no one is there to hear you. You feel like everything comes closing in, you have no way out, you struggle but in vain. You are enclosed in a dark room. You just want someone, anyone to be there to help you. A dark heavy curtain in hung over you to keep you from everyone and to keep everyone from you. Don't worry, It won't be like that forever. Eventually, someone will peek their head around the curtain and help you out so you won't be alone anymore. The sun streams through and all is well again. You realize that next time you cry out someone will hear you and help you through your troubles. You are free again.

A Winter Day
Snowflakes dance across the sky like fairies,
Frost paints masterpieces on the windows,
Lakes Freeze like a scene in a movie that has been paused at the best part,
The wind rushes the snow across the sky in a beautiful flurry,
Icicles hang off the roofs like delicate decorations,
The sun peeks out from behind the clouds and merrily reflects off the snow lighting up the lovely winter day.

Kathy, thank you for sharing your poems! They're so personal and seem to come from a really genuine place. I feel like I know you better after reading your writing. :D I love the hope that you end with in "Alone" and the word picture you create with "A Winter Day" - especially the part about the icicles!
