A Collection Of Poems

  1. 1. A Collection Of Poems <ul><li>by Heather Norman </li></ul>
  2. 2. Hope
  3. 3. Lend me your wings, I cry to the birds, So that I may fly away.
  4. 4. Lend me your roots, I cry to the trees, So that I may hold to my ways. Lend me your waves, I cry to the deep, So that I may learn to change.
  5. 5. <ul><li>Lend me your hope, I cry to the leaves, </li></ul><ul><li>So that I may find Spring always. </li></ul>
  6. 6. To Dusty
  7. 7. <ul><li>The stars themselves were a source of pain, </li></ul>
  8. 8. <ul><li>And I tried to run from the coming rain. </li></ul>
  9. 9. <ul><li>World upside-down, I fell into the sky, </li></ul><ul><li>pierced by those needle points, pierced by my lies. </li></ul>
  10. 10. <ul><li>Righted again, I fell into your arms, </li></ul><ul><li>but I didn't know you could save me from harm. </li></ul><ul><li>But even though I'm filth, my innocence gone, </li></ul><ul><li>that was the night, you are my dawn. </li></ul>
  11. 11. <ul><li>Those needles in the sky don't pierce anymore, </li></ul><ul><li>the wind isn't cold, the rain now pours. </li></ul><ul><li>My world is spinning; I'm lost in a dream, </li></ul><ul><li>you heal my soul when I long to scream. </li></ul>
  12. 12. <ul><li>Now the stars themselves aren't a source of pain, </li></ul><ul><li>you're with me in the healing rain. </li></ul>
  13. 13. <ul><li>An argument leaves me glaring, </li></ul><ul><li>too stubborn to forgive. </li></ul><ul><li>I’ve turned away from you, </li></ul><ul><li>My one reason to live. </li></ul>Your eyes search for me, Seeking some small hope, You search for green fields, Hiding in the smoke. Soft
  14. 14. <ul><li>I won’t forgive you! </li></ul><ul><li>Can’t you see my pride? </li></ul><ul><li>I can’t forgive you! </li></ul><ul><li>Yet I need you by my side. </li></ul><ul><li>The ground is so inviting, </li></ul><ul><li>I greet it, and my tears. </li></ul><ul><li>Is this really my fate, </li></ul><ul><li>To hate all of my years? </li></ul><ul><li>Yet you lift me from the ground, </li></ul><ul><li>A small broken doll. </li></ul><ul><li>You’ve found the green fields </li></ul><ul><li>From which my tears fall. </li></ul>
  15. 15. <ul><li>Deep in my childhood’s hour, </li></ul><ul><li>A spider invaded my space. </li></ul><ul><li>My small plastic playhouse, </li></ul><ul><li>His, by that yellow-striped face. </li></ul><ul><li>The odor of the grass, and that of the creek, </li></ul><ul><li>Was not interrupted by fear. </li></ul><ul><li>The chirping of birds, the wind’s whisper, </li></ul><ul><li>All of it, I could still hear. </li></ul><ul><li>I found slime-skinned insects, </li></ul><ul><li>Throwing them in his web. </li></ul><ul><li>He happily wrapped his meal </li></ul><ul><li>As I wiped the guilt from my head. </li></ul><ul><li>You may think me mad, </li></ul><ul><li>In need of the electric chair. </li></ul><ul><li>But pity not the prey, </li></ul><ul><li>Even demons need some care. </li></ul>Invasion
  16. 16. <ul><li>Carrying a puzzle-piece purse </li></ul><ul><li>Is like carrying your heart in your hands. </li></ul><ul><li>Inviting others to poke fun, </li></ul><ul><li>Injuring your pride as they can. </li></ul><ul><li>But my aunt and I will carry them proud, </li></ul><ul><li>Not caring what you have to say. </li></ul><ul><li>We’ll wander around looking odd, </li></ul><ul><li>Yet laughing throughout the day. </li></ul>Oddities
  17. 17. <ul><li>Water droplets catch in your hair, </li></ul><ul><li>Those cobwebbed curls. </li></ul><ul><li>When I’m caught in a snare, </li></ul><ul><li>In your arms lies my world. </li></ul><ul><li>I’ve never seen such a loving gaze </li></ul><ul><li>From another human being. </li></ul><ul><li>When you lift me from a haze, </li></ul><ul><li>I can’t believe what I am seeing. </li></ul><ul><li>Under this waterfall, </li></ul><ul><li>I can sing without restraint. </li></ul><ul><li>In this music hall, </li></ul><ul><li>I shall never feel faint. </li></ul>Your mint-scented shampoo Is soothing to the senses, Yet you’re the only one who Can put me in trances. The water grows cold, You face me and say: “ This house is so old, Guess that’s all for today.” Untitled
