In the Rain

by

Anne Braxton

Star crossed lovers
Wait patiently for each other
In the pouring rain
By the darkness of midnight


Be Free Again

by

Anne Braxton

A world of fears
Beholding me
A time of troubles
Soon draws near
I don't make sense
But I know I could
I understand
Just like I should
I don't know what to do
Or where I could ever go
I only realize
One true thought
I've gotta get outta here
I'm alone
In the dark
A place that I don't want to be
Will I ever be set free?
Beyond the point of no return
I've been dragged into the evils
Of society's depths
Wishing I could break theses chains
And fly upon the eagles' wings
Laugh and dance
Be free again


I've Gone Astray

by

Anne Braxton

I'm confused;
Can you help me?
I think I've lost my way...
Perhaps I took a wrong turn at thirteen;
When my music went from classical to rock.
Or maybe it was fourteen
That turned my life astray;
The time that I decided,
To live a wilder way.
But wait,
I think the answer lies at fifteen;
Yes, that's when things went wrong.
I choose my friends less wisely,
All the hard year long.
They were darker, and sinful.
I loved their company,
But they derailed my train
From off the narrow track,
And broadened my horizons,
To things I shouldn't have seen.
What's that you say?
I can't go back?
I suppose I shouldn't be surprised.
I knew it was too late.
Hopefully ill fined a detour,
Somewhere down the road.
It may not be an easy trip,
But some day, some how, some way I will get back,
And set my life upon the rail,
To travel down the narrow track


Insomnia

by

Anne Braxton


Did I ever wish to live?
Will I ever wish to die?
What's this place I'm livin in,
The choice was never mine.
How dose the day move to night;
I don't know.
But should I care?
I wish I knew...
But wonder why I ever thought it so.
I simply want to sleep tonight,
But my mind keeps on and on;
Asking this, pondering that.
Cause and effect,
Rhyme and reason,
Reality and fantasy.
Where do the lies stop;
And the truths become unbelievable?
Who am I to think these thoughts;
Nothing but a lonely soul.
Left alone.
In the cold.
To ponder over life.
A life that's kindred by
Insomnia


Hells Champagne

by

Anne Braxton

A gracefully torn dream,
Is like Hells champagne.
Kind of like that gig
Our old, ivory, sober palace.
And a blood spot,
From the firey depths,
Plays music to the dead.
Tragically, while slightly
Beautiful


Hey Dad, You Hurt Me

by

Anne Braxton

Why do i cry
In the night, all alone
As the stars in the sky
Look down and laugh
In my face

All the while
You sit on your throne
Drinking beer
And watching tv

You dragged me here
Now Im alone
You hurt me worse
By taking me away
Than you could have
By beating me bloody

I cant love
I cant feel
The world is dead
Is my life real?

I can hardly believe
All the pain you've caused
In my life
At my tender young age
Of "sweet" sixteen
Because you took me away
From my life.
