John McClay Poems
With these hands I will defend you. With these arms I will hold you. With this heart I will love you.
The Deafening Silence
Have you heard of the deafening silence? It rips though your heart And screams through your mind
My Secret Garden
I dream of a secret garden Filled with roses And a bench that seats two
On one beautiful day I wished upon a star In hopes that my feelings Would travel quite far
A Sealed Heart
I cannot think I cannot breathe Your arms are so warm It amazes me
A Gift Of The Heart
I'll give you my love and ask nothing in return I'll give you my heart
From the lights above, to the lights below, our quiet stage, is a glow.
Collection Of Eight Haikus
Man walks in the woods Sees a frantic animal He opens the trap
I Wasn'T Supposed To Be Made Like This
I'm all wrong! Somebody made a mistake Somewhere down the line
Where Are You?
Where are you? Why can't I find you? I search and search In this darkness
The Tree Of Desires
I made this world A world for you A place filled with love A place only we knew
I wonder what it would be like to be a star? Shining in the heavens, Watching over the world
These Words I'Ll Keep
In my bed I lay to sleep I hope some day These words I’ll keep
A dream catcher, made of wood and string Catches nightmares And safeguards good dreams
Comments about John McClay
With these hands I will defend you.
With these arms I will hold you.
With this heart I will love you.
When the fear comes, I will shield you.
When the pain comes, I will heal you.
When the sadness comes, I will protect you.
I can see the sky-high walls you build;
They are as clear as day -
Even unbreakable. Almost.
For I shall not just stand at the base
of these walls and watch as you seal
yourself behind them.
No, I will not merely knock,
Try again, give up, and turn,
Never to see the real you again.
I will break down ...
