I haven't been on poetbay since I was around 17 years old. I have tons of poems I never shared with this site. I don't know if anyone will remember me but Ive missed being here and sharing whats been going on with me. Here something I wrote a while ago

Passive Storms

The sunset on a day like this

Brings back the pain and memories

The northern wind chilling my thoughts

As my tears fell with the breeze

The trees with solemn faces

Could only look up in disgrace

And clouds leadened with betrayal

Brought melancholy to this place

Forgiveness was the water I reached of

Compassion the bread I wanted to eat

Yet like mirages vanished without warning

And left me to suffer in the heat

I needed the touch of a stranger

That wouldn't judge me for my past

Hoping I'd gain control of my hurt 

So that the pain inside doesn't last

I'll continue my walks in the wood

My surroundings dark and warm

Knowing I will try to escape

Those are my passive storms

i remember you even if we didn't talk much together, all that gives me a strange feeling, when i see pictures from people i never saw in reality and that time goes by....


Nice to know you have returned and with a lovely piece, great title too. Somehow there is something calming about this which I like.

This is a beautiful and very touching poem. The search for forgiveness from strangers is very interesting. Those who don't know ... yes, I understand that.
