Dolores  

Afraid, lonely, depressed, anxious, 

Wife of Andrew Laeddis,

Who loved Andrew and her

children,

Who lived in constant fear, wanted

better for herself, and missed her

husband

Who felt nervous about her

marriage, her children, and getting

help

Had three children with the elusive

Andrew

Who wanted to be healthy, and 

receive attention from those

around her

Who lived in Boston, and who's soul

resides with Andrew on 

Shutter Island

Chanal

 

Dolores

 

A

symbol

of an

end, or

simply a

means to

one; given

the chance,

it could

mean a new

beginning; It’s

peaceful, serene;

Soft sounds of pouring and splashing,

Soft white foam bouncing off lakes and streams;

Mother Nature’s own art, decorously granted to us to enjoy.

 

Waterfall

 

 

Sour ones are the best

 

Kind, but

 

I will take any

 

Type I can get,

 

Truly;

 

Lime ones are my second favorite, but I’ll

 

Eat every

 

Single Skittle in the pack.

 

Skittles

Aisuru was a mistake

Where I fell between the lines of love and hate

Where I listened to silence for hours

Where I heard nothing but screams of power

Anata o Aisuru dake

 

Aisuru was brutal

When everything was utterly flawed and futile

When it meant everything to me,

When it was something for everyone to see

Anata o Aisuru dake

 

And I find it in all I do,

And I know deep down

I’ll always be with you

Anata ga inakute sabishidesu

 

Aisuru

 

Song of things to come

 

Bearer of news, good or bad

 

Ballad of new days

 

Bringer of tides and new hope

 

Symphony of better times

To Wind 

 

I always wondered what it would be like,

 

if justice was taught and known to us when we were just tikes?

 

I thought about people, even those I have yet to see,

 

and pondered if  I spoke up, what could be?

 

To me, it doesn't matter if you are British,

 

American, courageous , or skittish,

 

Muslim, Christian, wealthy, or poor,

 

confident, modest, or what you do behind closed doors,

 

Asian, African, afraid, or brave,

 

if you live in a mansion, a manor, a box, or a cave,

 

if you're white, black, short, or tall,

 

Justice is for one, and one for all.

 

 

 

Justice

 

 

I was simply on my way to

 

work, 

 

When in front of me pulled

 

 

out a jerk.

 

My car was bent,

 

My insurane wouldn't pay a

 

cent,

 

and my story only caused my

 

boss to smirk

 

 

Traffic

Epitaph for my 4.0

 

 

You could've been great, but, sadly,

 

 

you turned everything in past the

 

 

 

due date.

 

Alive

 

open, free

 

enjoying, experiencing, living

 

being in the moment, being in your last moments

 

settling, loving, remembering

 

old, fearful

 

Dead

 

Going & Gone

 

 

Tasia L. Humphrey wrote Poems

 

 in A Minor  and retired right

 

after its publication at the age of

 

16. Her poetry made an "A" in

 

English class, but hasn't made

 

her a single cent. In fact, she's

 

practically giving copies out.

 

She enjoys spending time with

 

her dog, eating too much, and

 

sleeping. Her poems mean a 

 

lot to her, and she doesn't 

 

take writing lightly. She hopes you 

 

enjoy her attempt at having

 

any emotional depth, and that her

 

work inspires you to try writing

 

yourself.
