They call me Alaurilee

I've been writing poetry from the age of 12. It has, and always will be my outlet, my voice. Join me on my journey . . . I can write about almost anything. :) ~ Life doesn't come with a shiny new book; no users manual of answers to find with one look. Life comes with doors that open and shut; and paths laid before us to be followed or passed up. There's things we can learn and things we may teach; hearts that may find us and souls we may reach. Guaranteed on this journey are teacups of tears; and pains that might hurt us may age us by years. But the beauty of life, love, laughter and giving; come from serving hugs on a platter each and every day we're living. ~

"One Look"

One look.
One touch.
One feel.

Sometimes less . . .
Sometimes more.
What is real?

Sometimes . . .
I see such love behind those eyes.

And other times . . .
the painful cold can paralyze.

I want to fight.
I want to feel.
I want to be.

Can I have a love
that soothes my soul and sets me free?

I look into your eyes.
What I see puzzles me.

Something far away . . .
What are you looking at?

What do you see ?
Are you even looking at me?

We call this love.
We embrace.
We walk away.

We try again another day.

Just one look . . .
is all it takes to melt my heart.

Just one look . . .
is all it takes to break it too.
