Scattered behind me like fallen leaves in the storm of what we call Fall, these memories follow me endlessly while leaving traces of what I can only assume is myself.  Memories that circle around my past, give clues to my future, and let me know there is no escape.  Memories that haunt my dreams and create my nightmares, all while trailing closely behind.  Close enough to feel their power, far enough to create shadows that feel as if they are hovering over my head and masking my true self.  The self that was once as real as the breath in my lungs and the beat in my chest.  The self that these scattered memories are trying so hard to bring back.  The self that he destroyed.
I see you standing there,
trying to hide in the shadow's silhouette.
You're lost,
like I am,
aren't you?
Are you fighting invisible demons
that only make themselves seen in the night?
It's okay,
you don't need to be afraid.
You can come out of hiding;
I understand your pain.

I used to hide in the shadows as well.
It seemed to be the only place
where the demons couldn't find me.
But I was wrong.
The shadows are where
the demons thrive.
And eventually I saw
that they were only trying
to save me.
And if you let them.
they can save you too.
Sometimes the tape
doesn't hold the pieces together,
the glue dries and flakes away
and leaves the rest to crumble.

Sometimes the stitching falls apart
and the seams are no longer made to be strong.

Sometimes we can't hold ourselves together
even with the strongest of bonds.

Sometimes we break.

And that's okay.
We're not meant to be perfect.
We're not meant to have it together
all of the time.

Sometimes it's okay to break.

As long as we remember
that we can always
be put back together.
Time stands unsteady as the memories become sleeveless in my mind.
The daisies have popped through the snow
and your face has shown itself in the stars.
Nothing makes sense anymore since you've ventured into the unknown
and I can't cope with this reality anymore.
The amber liquids, the smoking sticks, the lucid dreaming in the dawn.
None of them can make me forget,
although I keep trying.
Those sleeveless memories shed their clothes even more
and reveal the past I try to flee.

My name is Sam. I grew up in an incredibly small town that I am so glad that I got out of. I write because that's the only thing that keeps me sane. I have a lot of thoughts that I don't always voice because I lack a thing called tact. I'm very passionate about everything that I do and I do believe that I am wise beyond my years. Any other things that you would like to know, just ask.

Current Residence: Minnesota
Print preference: print
Favourite genre of music: punk/rock
Favourite style of art: abstract
MP3 player of choice: one that works
Favourite cartoon character: Donald Duck
Personal Quote: No one can tell you what you can and cannot do. Only you can stop your dreams from coming true.

  • Mood: Daily Needs
  • Listening to: Hopeless Wanderer by Mumford and Sons
  • Drinking: coffee
Hey everyone, 
I am a poet that is looking for work.  I live in the United States and am willing to write poems, short fiction, or anything really.  I would like to get my name out there in order to be able to start a career in the near future. If you, or anyone you know, is looking for someone with my qualifications, or if you know of any websites that are easy to navigate (and preferably free or cheap) that I can join in order to find work, please let me know.  I would really like to get my writing career kicked off as soon as possible.

Thank you so much for your time, if you have any questions, feel free to ask.

--Sam
