Biography of Andrew Hinton
I was born in Massachusetts, but raised in New Hampshire, the homeland of Robert Frost. I grew up not knowing much about poetry until I read some of his work. Since then I have been inspired to try and write poems of equal quality.
I enjoy writing poetry mostly as a means to communicate to others what I am feeling. Some poems I do write only for myself, but the majority I write for people I love or people that hurt me and didn't know.
These poems are here for you to enjoy! I hope you like them! Please don't be afraid to rate them!

Andrew Hinton Poems
Why does music move the soul, And temporarily make us whole? What is it about the vibration of air, That draws us from darkness’ lair?
I see fire, burning my hills, My desire, and heart stills. Brought to my knees, from the things I've done,
A Flickering Flame
The flickering flame slowly begins to die, I watch as smoke begins to gently fly. Just the little ember in the wick remains, Like a survivor from the wax it proclaims.
I remember all the times I've tried to weep, And the fitful nights I've found no sleep. I remember feeling dead inside this shell, Emotions ringing like a muted bell.
Just Hope and a Dream
When my darling asks me how much I love her what will I say? Will I think of all the times I held sorrow and loneliness at bay? Will I think of all the times my heart was broken before? Will I be at a loss for words and succumb to using a metaphor?
A Praise and Prayer
O Lord I cried out, and You answered. You gave me the things I desired. I grew weak and You empowered me, You opened my eyes to see.
Let Me Know It Is I You Will Miss
Feel the pressure pushing in from all around, The grip of cold water as it begins to surround. See your dreams float like pockets of air, Things you wish you had strength to dare.
A Timid Intrest
Dear one whose strength I admire, I must admit closeness with you I desire. I hear rumors of mistakes you have made, And they do cause my heart to fade.
With eyes glacial blue, And smile snow white, Your laughter is warm Like sunlight.
The Fluorescent Sky's Glow
Here below the fluorescent sky's glow, I let my mind wonder as I go. Pale and tired are some eyes I see, Others shine brightly back at me.
A Winter Night
White above, and here below. I am blinded by the glow. Mind blank, and chest cold, I feel heavier than gold.
I Didn't Try to Run Lord
I didn't try to run Lord, I didn't want to hide. I didn't realize I hoard, I didn't know I lied.
Loneliness is an ally I'd rather keep, Even if in misery I must sleep. Hope comes and inspires a dream, Thought it evaporates faster than steam.
The End Is All I Seek
What is this wasteland that I travel here? I see others, but none come very near. Always at a distance, an arm's breath away. My heart feels tormented, left to decay.
I remember all the times I've tried to weep,
And the fitful nights I've found no sleep.
I remember feeling dead inside this shell,
Emotions ringing like a muted bell.
But now after a single sentence,
I feel free from years of penance.
Now hope comes and settles on the surface of my heart.
