    Her body glistens in the light I urge to play

    with her all night I pick her up and hold her steady Take a deep breath, we both are ready. I run one hand up her long neck Just touching her makes me euphoric Across her body, my right hand goes I've been practicing, believe me, it shows. Her body glistens in the light I urge...

    WHERE IT'S DRIPPING THE FAT I like staying up

    through the night; it's quieter, easier to write. sometimes it won't flow. the best thing's to let go. some days I try to do what's right. that's certainly not every day, though lately it has been that way. I'm still very manic, but I'm not feeling panic, when I probably should...

    All I Want

    All I want is a feeling of comfort: Two arms which hug me and never let me go Two eyes which look at me adoringly and say: You are the most beautiful A mouth which whispers comforting and loving words in my ear A body that gives me warms when I'm cold A love on who gives...

    Tonight I'm going to start deleting poems,

    rhymes and limericks I have posted that I now find pointless. I'll leave anything with hearts or responses for the time being, but there's just too much of it here for anyone to read, and too much that is really just taking up space. I'll also leave any that I really like, good...

    Don´T Give Up!!!! For Poetry ... Her Life Is Just Very Difficult!

    At night, you're lying in your bed alone and try to sleep, but you can not, because too many thoughts are in your head. Things that eat away you inside. Fears that do not let you go. You try to fight against them, but it seems to be a futile, hopeless struggle. You see no light...

    That Is For All Those Who Feel Lonely :´(

    FUNERAL thank god, I'm home at last; the

    ritual was over fast, but the people who stayed were a bit too dismayed. they felt much more like a cast. I'm sick of them calling me dear; isn't anyone ever sincere? the lights were no longer on; nearly everyone else was gone. why couldn't they just disappear? the silence...

    READERS I want to get close to the reader,

    Possession
