Flower

by

Amanda Foust

You are like a delicate flower that I hold in my rough and weatherworn hands.
So fragile are your snow-white petals
I tremble, afraid the warmth of my hand might wilt you.
I dare to fondle your softness
Rewarded am I
You respond to my touch, bending towards me.
How I long to kiss you, to feel your tenderness wisp across my lips.
You have made me drunk with your heady scent.
And I breathe in deeply; my lungs are filled with you.
Gently, I press my lips on to yours.
Oh, you are sweet, like the first fruits,
I will keep you forever.
Mine alone, my secret treasure.


My Love

by

Amanda Foust

Like the stormy winds, you are wild and free,
Blowing your presence into eternity
Like a thief in the night, you have stolen my heart.
I burn with anguish when we must part.
Your love is sweet and I bath in its sea.
Your touch is warm and it fills me
Intoxicate my senses, pour out your wine.
I am yours, and you are mine.


My Desire

by

Amanda Foust

Are you he?
For whom I have waited.
Are you the dream
I've seen in the darkness?
My soul has known your words,
So desperatly searching...
My heart has felt your touch,
so frought with anticipation.
I have seen you in my veil of desire
Alas, you have not been captured by me.
My fantasy,my dream.


warmth

by

Amanda Foust

My hands are rough
Worn from time
Give me your hands
Lay them in mine.
Let me draw forth
The soft, supple flesh
May we be as one
As our souls intermesh


enveloped

by

Amanda Foust

Let my being surrounded you.
Never will you escape.
I will keep you always.
Be my toy
Be my one true love.
You are my doll.


bleed

by

Amanda Foust

Bleed my heart, squeeze my love
You came upon me in the form of a dove.
Quickly changed, like raven night
Cornered me into a cage of fright.
Extract my soul to make it yours
My thief you are, but you I adore.
Foolish am I, to love you so.
Still I beg, please donít go.
Change you must, I will convince
My words they crush, I see you wince.
I love you, and I shall set you free,
My love, my dear, come back to me.


tender rose

by

Amanda Foust

Tender rose
Flower of joy
Feel my love
Donít be so coy.
Lift your eyes
Look at me
As I am
As always Iíll be.


my lonely place

by

Amanda Foust

In a deep dark corner
I have my own world
I breath stale air
My eyes see gray
If this is life
Death I can bear
So death come upon me..
Swiftly please
End this suffering
And come with ease
End this life


lonley

by

Amanda Foust

I live in black
I cry in pain
Each day I live
Death will gain
Each night I fly
Up through the sky
I drown myself
in tears I cry
Nobdy loves me
Novody cares
Lonliness hurts
Lonliness stares
My screams they echo
without fear
My screams will echo
a thousand years.


my shame

by

Amanda Foust

Leave me in shame
to die alone
I am to blame
My faults are my own
Take my sight
still,yet I see
inward self
my mind tempts me
Never to escape
only to grieve
I enter the gate
of reality


the one

by

Amanda Foust

Burning flame
Icannot blame
why you went away
lonliness and heartache
follow me everyday.


Speeding ticket

by

Amanda Foust

My world has come crashing down
Fallen against the coldest steel
When and why have I
Been thrown into this deal?
Injustice slaps me on my cheeks
I feel a victim
Has gone to sleep
A stand I make
I know whatís right
Why must I
Lose this fight?
A judgeís rule
A hammer down
Whoís the king?
And whoís the clown?
And so he smiles
Sharp teeth of white
Because he knows
Heís won the fight.


Do you know?

by

Amanda Foust

have you seen my tears
felt my pain
looked through the years
and felt the same

have you experienced my imagination
indulged thoughts of fancy
through which came humiliation
do you know what it's like to be me


Desperate Life

by

Amanda Foust

desperate situations
call for desperate measures
should i suffer through pain
or indulge in my pleasures
and if i give my imagination
half a chance
will i fall victim
to circumstance?
should i open
the unlocked door?
will i be left wanting
for so much more


The way it is now

by

Amanda Foust

How can I feel such emptiness
Tempted by my bitterness
I suffer from my lonliness
what was once more is now far less
My heart feels so heavy and black
My life has derailed off the track
Happiness my life does lack
where and how can I get it back?
way back when my world had sun
as a child breathless I'd run
oh but We'd have much fun
but now I'm grown and childhood's done


Never

by

Amanda Foust

black
white
day
night
evil
good
I will
I would
deal
fold
to have
to hold
find it
lose it
never
abuse it


Wild And Free

by

Amanda Foust

Call me wild for I am free
I ignore the powers that be.
Laws they say are set in stone
But I have broken every one!
Look they may and stare at me
I meet their gaze for I am free!
Free of chains, bonds are broken
My words are shouted, no not spoken.
Free to roam with the wind, free to scream if I care
And rip my clothes off piece by piece
I laugh as they stare!
And oh how they envy me, wild child that I am,
For all of us are wild and free if not shut up and damned.
And so the masses follow me, and sing as they go
For yes they too are free, everyone now shall know!
You may try to keep us down, oppress us every way,
But we know that we are free, and we shall have our day.
Power to each and all, everyone everywhere.
Take it off and strip it down_laugh as they stare!


Regret

by

Amanda Foust

For every window opened to me
I have quickly closed
And I know that opportunity
Nothing to me owes
For every door that has opened
I have turned away
And never have thought about
What comes after yesterday?
And so the years have passed me by
Left me to grow old
I never realized regret
Could have such a powerful hold
And yet I have not aged so much
To make it all seem right
But this body is weary
And, I just donít have the fight
Where do I go from here?
To mend this tear in me
Was I just destined to
Live so easily?
I find this all so hard to believe
I cannot comprehend
That this is all there is to be
Until my pitiful end?
Will I find my remedy?
Do I care to find?
A dream I had so long ago,
When I possessed my own mind?


Bitter Wine

by

Amanda Foust

I feel cornered
Trapped
Forced to run the maze
Like a stupid rat
Not knowing if there lays a reward
Or a horrible fate
A rat knows only that it must run
Like me
Someone is poking with a sharp knife
In my throat
Telling me, I must comply
My blood trickles from the shallow wound
I am scared
However, I know I must fight
Try to escape
This is for your own good
They tell me
Their voices seem like cyanide
We just want to help you
Their warbled voices assure me
Nevertheless, I can see they are laughing
Because they know soon I shall fall
Moreover, thank them for the bitter wine they have poured on my life.


While You Are Away

by

Amanda Foust

Last night I thought of you my dear
Indeed I thought a bit
I felt a flush come over me
My heart did race so quick

The house is not the same at all
Without your presence dear
If I could blow the time away
The sooner youíd be here

I have with me the luxuries
You so thoughtfully left behind
To make me feel comfortable
Your absence from me they remind

God speed the day that you return
The breezes carry you swiftly home
For want of you is making me mad
As I am quite alone


Our Lives

by

Amanda Foust

When I lay cold
Shivering on my bed,
Will you come and comfort me?
Or take up arms instead.

How can I measure
A cup of sand through a sieve?
All I ever wanted
Was for you to believe.

Was it me who brought you down?
Much farther than you could have gone?
I do believe I am the guilty one.
And I do know that I am wrong.

Tell me how I can fix you.
So I can repair myself.
What am I without you,
But a bottle on a shelf.

You are the contents I once held.
I have carelessly poured out.
Help me to restore the goods,
A container cannot go without.

The trust you set in me
Has proven too much.
But never a transgression
Upon you I will put.

With the years and months
I have grown.
And I hope that trust
Is a seed you have sown.

For never will I wander.
You are Iíll ever want or need.
Please believe my words,
You provide the soil, Iíll provide the seed.

So I leave you with just one last thought;
No one could take my place, no one could take yours.
No one could shine as bright, or be as humble;
As you are among the stars.

When Were You Mine?

by

Amanda Foust

Why wonít the sun go down tonight?
My heart has sunk so low
Yet the sun keeps shining
Mocking me, and I just donít know
Why you said the things you did
About the way you feel
How lovers come and lovers go
How loving me wasnít real.
Just another penny thrown to me
A wish in running streams
Never go too far
Falling tears, and broken dreams
Land me here tonight
Sharing a bed with you
A silly little girl Iíve become
Not knowing what to do
So I give a goofy smile
Try to hide my tears
Keeping hope alive
That your kiss will erase these fears
So goodbye my love
I am sorry for the pain
Sorry you never loved me
Sorry you never felt the same.
