 THE  SENTINEL(Rhyming Couplets)


~The Sentinel~
(Rhyming Couplets)

There are things,that keep on happening, and never stops
As I watch the clock with fright, and the hours just drop
And hour after hour, time runs on me,and then it plops
As I know by now, for you and me, time never stops
So many things are in my heart that causes me to weep
And by just thinking about it, it won't let me sleep
Til my soul in the night, is all garbed on as black
I find myself crying, because you've turn on me your back
There are many times that it is hard for me to you just to talk
And  even more difficult now at times,to take with you short a walk
Most things, aren't always as simple as they may seem
As my mind  weaves a stron net,with all my imaginary dreams
Life everyday can get tougher to cope with, and sometimes even harder
It is nothing like when we are spreading to bread, some jelly and butter
Trying to make at least some sense out all this madness of existing
As every day and long hours at night,I write poems that I just love reading
To continue through each line that I've written,till my brain and bones groan
Keeping my composture straight,even when I know you can turn me into a cold stone.
