When All That’s Left Is A Smile

“It’s not enough to cry at times. Some times the pain is just too deep.”

Lindsey K Payne

Today I’m am reading through my poetry journals (I have nine by the way). Trying to figure out which pieces to use for my books. I have a few different ideas for my books. I have thought about different themed books or to do them chronologically. I know I won’t publish all of my poems. Not that I don’t like them all, just want the best ones for the world to see.

For those who have published poems before, what helped you decide on your content? Did you start off small or go all out for your first book?

Off to put some ideas together. I will leave you with a oldie…

And Death Becomes Her

And death becomes her

When all that’s left is a smile

Because it doesn’t matter

What happened or will happen

Death will always follow

And time will soon cease

But happiness still comes

From a place near her heart

That’s what keeps her smiling and laughing

Regardless if what death holds

Heaven,

Be it God’s or unknown,

Heaven is on the horizon

For a dream untold and that’s when

Death becomes her

When smiles are all tears

Happiness is all fears

And now there’s no reason to be, but she

And she will conquer and seek all dreams seen

All dreams heard

Even when death becomes her…me
