Broken By Jared Ringeman

My mind is sometimes empty

My thoughts are so unclear

So whisper something gently

A word to calm the fear

The boy inside me longing

For the words to stop the tears

I am not broken

I’m wounded deep inside

Alone here in this solitude

My pain I try to hide

No I’m not broken

And I’m not supposed to cry

No I’m not supposed to cry

Outside its raining

It’s raining all the time

Lightening flashing across the sky

Casting shadows on the blinds

The little boy inside of me

Can find no peace of mind

I wonder how it got this way

How all this came to be

Truth in my reflection

Just shadows on my mind

Something else inside me

The boy I used to be

Forget all the voices in my head

Try to remember things you said

You speak to me in riddles

Your whispers all but lies

I waken from this daydream

To late to realize…

Be With You By Steve Lay

 

Holding onto this feeling

It seems quite appealing

What I’m feeling is to be with you

Holding onto this thought

About what I’ve been taught,

Stop Rating myself a naught,

In the situation with you.

I want you to want me

I hoped that you hope too

Please will you let me be with you

Out of sight out of mind

This is the now let us find

A better way to communicate

Before it becomes too late

This time I wont pretend

Happy to be your friend

Holding on to this feeling

Breaking through the ceiling

What I’m needing is to move on

Holding onto this theory

Baby You being near me

Open up and believe me.

I want you to hopefully see

I want you to see the best in me

But what can I do please let me be with you

Out of focus out of line

This is now please be mine

I met you and didn’t appreciate

I’ve realised when it’s too late

This time I’ll look you in the eye

My best to you I’ll try

I want you to know

Please can I show

I will accept if there’s no chance

I desire let me show it

Please can you see my affection

Please can you feel my intention

I realise this now

Can I be with you somehow?

Steve Lay started off writing poems in drama class over ten years ago, he had always been interested in words and lyrics after listening to some of his favourite popstars such as Gary Barlow, Robbie Williams and Noel Gallagher back in the day and their use of language and words in the songs.  Steve had never shown anyone his writing until one day he decide to see if his work was any good as he was about to throw many of them out. 

After getting in contact with his local radio station (Penwith Radio) as well as The Source FM and was invited on twice more to read his poetry. This exposure gave him the confidence to continue. Writing has turned into his one true passion.

When The Paper Met The Pen By Patrick Daniel Read

One day the paper met the pen,

That’s when I knew my journey as a writer was set to begin.

There have been times where it seemed like they were my
only friend.

They have seen sad times,

they have seen me through glad,

Writing down so many experiences that I have had.

It first started as love poems,

Then political,

I have also tried being philosophical,

Inspirational,

Even theoretical.

I have always written the truth,

of all the things that I have been through,

I just hope that my writings have been enjoyed,

Perhaps even inspired you.

who knows where this will take me,

Who knows where this will go,

All I know is I am going to keep writing till I run out of paper,

Till my pen loses it’s flow;

For I now remember fondly,

The day the paper met the pen,

Little did I realize that the love,

the dream of a lifetime was set to begin.

Patrick Daniel Read

Patrick Daniel Read, born in Long Beach, California, is the father of 3 special needs children and disabled veteran of the United States Army who also served in the Signal Corps (1993-1996) and the Ohio National Guard ( 1996-1999).

Patrick started writing when he was 13 years old. His first goal was to write song lyrics, then through the suggestion of some friends, he started writing poetry, as a love sick teenager writing love poems, and break-up poems.

“I started to write poems about family. There were a few years that I took off while I was in the United States Army, but the entire time I was in the Army, I felt as if there was an important part of my life that was missing. After getting discharged, I served three years as an active Radio Operator. I began to write again. Since then, writing has become a crucial part of my life.

“I am a journalist at heart, and the opportunity to start a poetry column on Eat Sleep Write is the dream of a lifetime for me.

Through Eat Sleep Write, I believe we can take poetry to a new level, and get the exposure we deserve for this craft; this art”.

Goodbye Beast

Come, look into my hands
I have nothing left to give.
My heart is stone, not flesh.
I am a statue, empty, cold,
My skin is grey from death.
No more, the fire, nor embers
Burn within my loving self.
To all things come its ending.
Go now and cry your empty tears
I was a curse to you all my life.
Stranger, who curses me even now.
I gave my love to parched lands
Where the precious drops fell
Into dead crevices of earth.
I squandered a treasure
To feed a mouthless beast,
Thinking love would change him.
But a wilding is a wilding,
Whether in a field or palace.
Leave me to my consequence,
Even death is sweet,
Compared to one more moment,
At your spiders hand’s,
Wicked mind and evil eyes.
Leave me to my solitude,
Finally erase your rancid stench,
From my damaged soul.
