    For a moment I thought I knew you, it seems so distant now. Gone like a fart in the wind.

    I love you, and that doesn’t describe my

    feelings very well, so I’ll try to elaborate, I want to paint constellations with your name, and plant trees that grow your favorite fruit, I want to dance with you, I want to twirl you around and catch you when you fall, I want to sleep with you, not sexually, but besides you...

    One Of My Favorite Robert Frost Poems

    The Road Not Taken by Robert Frost Two roads diverged in a yellow wood, And sorry I could not travel both And be one traveler, long I stood And looked down one as far as I could To where it bent in the undergrowth. Then took the other, as just as fair, And having perhaps the...

    warming their hands and feet.Cuddled beneath the covers, warming their once cold hearts.

    Sent as a present from Annam— A red cockatoo.

    Colored like the peach-tree blossom, Speaking with the speech of men. And they did to it what is always done To the learned and eloquent. They took a cage with stout bars And shut it up inside. Po Chu-I

    "He took the stars out the sky

    and put them into her eyes. And she looked past the shadows -at summer's white butterflies. Seasons change and people grow, still she waits there making angels in the snow."

    fearless and fast. the ground is small from here. for once, im bigger than the rest. but time moves quickly, and so does the wind that's pushing me back. i fall. Once, like an eagle. Now, like a fragile leaf falling from the stem of a small branch. But it is not...

    You have always told me there are no words you

    have been able to find that make sense of what is inside you. But why should you ever become weary with that, my love? For words are just tiny winds with sounds if different arrangements, and even if you are never able to find the right ones, by god if they never come, know...

    Love: The Joy That Wounds

    “You try to be faithful And sometimes you're cruel. You are mine. Then, you leave. Without you, I can't cope. And when you take the lead, I become your footstep. Your absence leaves a void. Without you, I can't cope. You have disturbed my sleep, You have wrecked my image. You...

    “This raggedy man, he works

    for all Whom troubles and worries hold in thrall. He sings sweet songs of sun and dew And lightens that world for me and you- He opens our hearts- and pain has fled. And memories of childhood live instead. He soothes with the balm of love-bid tears The bitter pain of the...

    It could be your eyes.

    The way they stare through me.. Like you undress my soul. To continue to pursue me. Or it might be your lips. Kisses so passionate. Could be your energy. Pulls me in like a magnet. Your body language speaks so dramatic. Your hands grab enough of me I almost can't stand it. This...

    The fragrance flees from the flower,

    alas; The flower plaintively calls it back. 'Come, come,' says the breeze, 'its loss is no lack: You wouldn't have scent if it didn't pass.' ~from 'Particles', by Rabindranath Tagore.

    I was telling a friend here

    that I've written mostly sad poems because the happy sounding ones always sound too cheesy to me. Then I quickly sliced off this bit of cheese..The birdies in the trees, The doggies with no fleas, They all have too much cheese, So stop now, if you please.
