"Silence.Darkness,The brilliance,Of this vastness.Stuck in this blindness,Looking for sweet happiness,Reaching for some dependence,Surrounded by empty nothingness."
A darkroad
"At the end,They say all we see is a bright light Like the start of a beautiful dreamBut when I close my eyes All I see is pitch black Like the start of an unending nightmare,Like a journey down a dark road."
“Hope is the tonic that keeps our backs bent Toiling the dead soil until we are spent Where is the harvest that our tears should have brought?For they have watered the land and yet there is naught Life springs from beneath rocks on dried patched earthThe irony of this deserts vastness is lost in our last breath.” 
“The deeds of men sits heavy on their heartsBut some can’t be rescued from the dark We all have the capacity to inflict painSome use guns, others use words. And many don’t even realize the damage they havecaused In uncertain times we continue to live in hopeBecause the alternative is simply to not live at all” 
"Footprints in the sky treading where angels do not diemy soul is only too scared to speak my heart simply hopes I’m living a lie"
“Our actions reverberate even in the souls of the dead.They are only dead in the ground Until they are dead in our heartsFor the earth is where we returnBut our memories would be planted even in souls yet tobe born” 
“Brown eyesI see your sighsSometimes this life comes with scarsBut still you shine like the starsClose your eyes, feel the highsDon’t be shy, touch the sky” 
I see you
“I see you; your aura remains a memory that never departs.The essence of your presence, A continuing reminder.My mind wanders,Drifting into the space of your warmth,The eagerness of your touch.I see you.” 
“We speak to God, but he never replies,He left here a very long time ago.So we pray to soulless beings, And they reply with wicked whims.Hopeless, we destroy each other to escape our nightmares.But dreams, are not what I see when I close my eyes”

I read a verse from some of my poems and sometimes feel it can actually be more effective standing on it's own save that it'll be too short a poem. But I like this poetic quotes idea, I should probably compile those verses and try these too. I particularly look forward to reading your poetry, they are always so profound, rich with meaning.
