with a road running its center
fields of wild grass and shrub border its sides
above the sky has forgotten the sun
under the swift grey silent river of storm clouds
it will rain any moment
the air is thick with its taste
a mass of small birds suddenly take to wing
walls I've built they're cracking and falling down
And though I know my time is short
I try my best not to resort
To falling into madness and self doubt
Because every night will see the sunrise
Every trouble will work itself out
When the darkness comes on in
Do not try and live...
drifting down aimlessly
silently one landed in her hair
but her eyes were fixed on the fire
a great rushing crackling tortured sound
as the building burned
we could only stand and watch
can still feel its heat on my face
with the seasons laying a great drift
I found a white spider,
spinning a web from my
chest to my belly.
It hung like it was a jewel,
pierced into my navel.
I thought I’d scream,
and tear away the gossamer
threads from my breasts and,
Spiders make me awfully squeamish,
but I picked her up,
and gazed at...
him as he was

no traveller in the dark
no footprints decorate the expanse
the small golden light of the candle in the window
the silhouette of the mountains encasing this quiet place
from which no road or path leads
with no tale or...

men lose their power
They've cheated, lied, and stole to get
But the time is come and this is it
Your money will not help you now
Your possessions, property and you will bow
To the one who owns it all
Everything else will start to fall
The suffering you've caused will come back...
I started writing poetry the beginning of last year. A friend of mine got me into it and from then on I wrote a lot of poetry. I mostly wrote poems about my feelings. I was an emotional guy during my last semester so I had a lot of feelings swirling around inside of me and...
It always has been just you and me. maybe i'm putting a smile in my face, maybe i'm laughing so loud as possible, maybe it seems that i'm happy, but there's just you who knows that it's not. who knows me right, who understands me. sometimes i see things reminding of you and there...

Cradling your heart,
Hoping to feel that fading pulse
Before I fall in love with dying.
But decay is seeping through the cracks,
So persistent that resisting
Becomes a love of destruction.
So I'm left to fall and sink into the pavement,
Wondering which one will cave in...
Tears on a tin roof
The fiddler sat
Upon my roof
He had no feet
He only had hoofs
He played his song
Of make believe
He wore a lie
Upon his sleeve
His evil tune
Had me dizzy and spun
Believing he was
The ritious one
Cast a spell upon my
To leave all of my...
The mental survival
Of guilt and shame
Always the stranger
Never left alone
Confusion and anger
All which I've owned
Breaking its silence
Regardless of costs
Strength through defiance
Or forever remain lost
father murdered in prison
I am alive today
Because of the man who put him there
I met him as a boy
When I was just a small time thief stealing to survive
He knew my name
And I didn't know why he knew
He gave me a sandwich
And then just smiled
He'd do that from time to time...
Mom's blood, the red tide runs. Thickly flows blood so sweet, driv'n forth by subtle beat. Honey combed through body rest, spilt forth from sundered breast. Treason met on that day, with new force found she doth lay, by my hands stained deep red. Mother dearest, she is dead...
And I'm strapped to the teeth
To save a sweet soul
Don't ever don't ever
Question my role
Don't ask her to swallow
Cause I'll kick in your teeth
Don't pull out a switchblade
Unless you want to be stabbed
And if you are smart
You won't dare make me mad

Which way's up and what lies down,
With no one to blame?
Who's the lowest of the low,
Who can justly define the way,
In which others should proudly sway?
You see, "love" is patient.
"Love" is kind.
But their "love...

to streaming like wild creatures dancing on spring breeze
she runs her fingertips along my cheek
and with the measured and carefully tender kiss of her smile
she releases me to wander the sunlight
and seek the turns of phrase
seek the true words that...
His hands are on the Jacket
The Jacket that I gave him.
My note is in the pocket of the Jacket.
Glass is on the Jacket
The jacket beneath his hands
My hope is in the hood of the Jacket.
Rain is falling on the Jacket...
Death is the line between shadow and light,
The flicker of a candle flame ready to go out.
Death is the sweet sick sensation, going upstairs,
When you get to the last step but the last step's not there.
Yes, here too
Is the ugliness of human decay.
The stench, the rot, the cold...
I’m like the gray or white or baby blue,
Or one of those other crayons
You never take out of the box.
You’d rather leave the page alone,
Where it needs a color, than take me out of there.
So I get dry and waxy and break
Again and again,
But even then, if someone...

with my heart in yours
you will see
the truth of loves knowin
you will see the beautiful truth of our lives joined
breathing as one
give yourself to me
you will see
thanks for writing.
I got busy,
it got crazy,
fell in love
then we got lazy,
lost your email,
missed your message,
filter bumped you,
needs an edit,
I feel guilty,
fell so far
I'm scared to face you,
****** my phone up...
Poor lost soul
You look so young
People say your life has just begun
Deep inside you feel so old
You'll be ok it'll get better in time
You drown out the words
Too many times you've been told
Poor lost soul
Turning to the blade in the draw
Behind your long...
broken, fatigued, cold hearted and no longer able to trust. Where can I find meaning in purposeless void? My desire now;
Only to crawl under something into a parallel universe tailored to perfect weightlessness and my greatest joys and comforts, and so to sleep.
as my moon begins to rise.
There starts a fire in my eyes.
A fire not of lust and desire.
But of passion and drive.
The passion that we share in a simple kiss.
To the passion we share cooking a meal.
The drive to be a better one. Not Two.
The passion and drive to become a true...

in the midsummer dreamscape she has
woven on our bedsheets with
her photographs and pencil sketches
there is much to be done and little time to keep
she gently sweeps away such frail notions
and with sparkling wonders
shining in her eyes she unwraps the day
My life is a lie
My heart is on fire
My body is weak
When it come to desire
Say what you will
I believe it all
Every lie you tell
no matter big or small.
I hear what I want
And it's never the truth
That's one fault
I didn't lose with my youth.
love that makes me
quiver on the inside when I want to reveal
an unspoken secret. Seventeen years we
have been lovers and yet I still am that shy
girl that fell deeply for you. Blue eyes that see
what I am, through all the doors and rooms
I build to keep my sanity. How...
remark of the world washed ashore
written with the driftwood's obscure tongue
its twisted words spun round itself
polished and worn to resemble the bones

spoke soft of a place where...
I would not go so far as to convey to the world that I am a poet but I'm certainly a kindred soul of sorts in spirit. You see, I do write poetry, however, my poems are simply not up to snuff. They lack the ease, distinction and eloquence that real poets possess. This unpleasant...

Memories resurface; a mist begins to form,
Therefore clouding my sight, judgment
Spiritual essence still breathes; knowing of one;
Lost in all thought – silently breathing; listening
Determining all factors; feeling the wave’s crash;
Thundering terror breathes in the...

Some name me poet, I do not so myself. Many thinks I am so and call me a fallen demon with poetic soul.
Perhaps they are right, and perhaps they are not... what I do know though is that a poet is one that is full of feelings and ways to describe this world. How the cresent moon...
The angel dog
High up in the courts of heaven today
a little dog angel waits,
with the other angels he will not play,
but he sits alone at the gates.
"For I know my master will come" says he,
"and when he comes he will call for me."
The other angels...
My body is taken by the soul I call…
My soul is taken by who I am.
Not what you try to make me.
My mind is taken by my own original thoughts
You can say you hate me.
But that doesn’t faze me.
You can tell me to die.
But you cannot get rid of me that easily
I AM HERE...
Your yellowish words,Like puke on my shoes.You have refusedTo let the birdsPeck out the headlinesOn our newspapers.Their appearanceIs like dirty diaper piles'.Do not return.Stick a cactusDown your throat.Let whiskey burnAnd erect usTo sail the Styx boat.
