Wisdom, known but avoided
Why? My heartache of course!
Can you really catch a rainbow?
I didn’t think so…..
Are you sure?
What is my pot of gold?
Do I really want to know?
But why do we chase rainbows?
Can you feel a rainbow?
for far too long
The walls are too high
The chains too strong
I want to know what it's like to be free
To spread my wings and fly
To feel the cool breeze
I want to know what it's like
To run, walk, or even just crawl
But I never trusted anyone enough
What little bit of what's left of me
almost died today.
Those things that mean so much in this world,
I lost along the way.
I met a man as cold as me.
He found what i had lost.
He turned around and gave it back..
He knew just what it cost.
In a world so cold and hard...
A perfect sculpture of symmetry.
Pulchritudinous angles that weakens resolve.
Blinding rose fields yet bow when you are near.
You are the ambrosial Alpha.
Your provocative redolence is power.
A hand through silk tresses.
Soft gaze that captures all.
Lithe gynic softness...
Acrimonious and fragmented is this day
Mislaid and secluded is thy love
From the pitcher of sorrow I drink the liquid of my slow death. It pours through my soul, drenches my inner most anatomy and quiches my thirst for things unlawful and just. It puts out the flames that dance...
Just trying to find my way like everyone else ,
With these blue eyes there's a story to tell.
A war on my mind but still moving forward ,
Sailing into the sunset where the birds chew crate and murdels.
Like a butterfly born after a storm I conquer these challenges,
On a quest...
and at the centre the power of its wealth.
The force of it all is enough to kill, but from somewhere the boy found his will.
I was protected by a shaft of light, that called my name and restored my sight.
Now I seek storms and look for the lost, I show them the light whatever...
When my world was in a much lesser chaos,
Where I no longer will need to weigh my actions on the scale,
And I'll be freed from the clutches of this harrowing tale.
I trick my mind into believing it's you,
When I'm holding someone new,
But the heart knows what the mind can't...
I was just a child,
and you a man,
now I'm an adult,
look at me if you can.
I'm no longer the child,
You sought to destroy,
the innocent life,
you claimed as your toy.
now let's see you hurt me,
let's see you try,
but you can't hurt me,
as I'm stronger inside.
You stole the child...
I've got a lot going on, and I thought I would be creative...
In her eyes I see a dim light.
That I pray someday will shine very bright.
In her stare I witness an empty gaze
Of a past of pain and ruin beneath a tear-filled haze.
In her eyes I see a damaged soul
How much I wish...
But you're letting the train pass
Leave you at the station
Too little too late
She says she wants you now
But you really can't wait
You've seen her move
High heels on glass
you just watch her move
As she walks right past
In your mind...
nothing will be easy. I am dragging in the sludge of all my sabotage. Why can't I release this fear, walking around trying to conceal my tears. I keep trying but I'm dying inside. All my creations, all my connecting, recollecting. I'm nothing without love. Love for myself...
could write anything possible
It's a possible mistake
I dream the only ghost
Some sort of casper
This is art
This is life
With this part
Of new beginnings
Forever in my heart
Maybe we dream
To live reality to what we mean
It never came with a manual...
Lost without a smile,
Tears that flowed with the wind,
Each night and day,
I close my eyes and dream of hope,
The shattered emptiness crushed my soul.
The cracks in my fragile heart slowly slipped away,
I look to the sky as my wrists cry,
I find hope in the darkness,
Sometimes arched backwards painfully.
Its roots now old rotting yet still firm,
Leaves that cover my pain soon to drop.
The days harshness followed by cold night,
My bark not what it seems to the admirer.
Looking over my landscape sullen place be,
Winter quelling rosy life's...
but here it goes.
She dances across the night. My heart races with her in my grasp. Many bow to her beauty. Rubies and diamonds crash to the ground and scatter. She dances like a demon in the guise of an angel. Lesser men cry at her sight. I admire her elegance. I fear her...
Living life dangerously close to the boundaries.
She with such an addictive quest for life, love,
Begging for a harmony of deeply felt expressions.
Yet like a magician’s wand at a medieval banquet,
Could cast such a spell with a cloak of believability.
as they join together in a pristine blanket
Hiding the dirt and unlovely weeds that clutter up our everyday lives
Stretching for miles an unbroken white loveliness creates a new world
Darkness is coming fast but the glow from the snow prolongs the day
Absorbing the quiet...
This is its currently completed form..I'm not sure if I will edit it in the future though..as something still feels missing..but..not missing.
I have lived a thousand lives in your eyes,
Painted portraits of a thousand angels
In trying to capture you on canvas.
I have seen the...
The silvery remnants of activity,
Reveals the hidden pathways of snail.
The network, a labyrinth of tunnels,
Leads me close to the working ants’ trail.
A cavern warm and dark beneath hedges,
Stores a visitor who reveals all at night.
With its prickly features it endears me...
as I was cleaning up some of my stories. So I'm re-posting...LostLike a ship on the turbulent seasNot knowing where to turnJust flowing with the breezeIn the midst of darknessA friendly face appearsSkies once cloudy beforeNow everything is clearHe took her handAnd guided her to...
I live in a car
that's been burned out for years.
The guy that was driving,
His bones are still here.
I was with him when it happened.
We were both drinking beer.
We went off a cliff.
The fire burned up our tears.
I am waiting for judgment.
My soul shakes with fear.
You are my life
You are my light
Your so sweet like honey
Your sometimes so sweet, you melt my heart
You make me smile every time i see you
You make me blush every time i see you
You take my breath away
Your always there for me
Your always in my heart
Nothing makes me happier...
Soldiers marched all night
inside the houses families cried
the townspeople were affright
people fled having nowhere to hide
One man spoke to the people as they fled
Crying:"be strong, fight, never give in"
But the people looked at him nothing said
He realized his fate he knew...
My stepson arrived whilst we were away,
Oblivious was I on that wonderful day.
My husband, he knew, his child would be born,
Between son and his wife, emotions were torn.
I never found out until much later on,
For a whole ten months, the prize I had won.
The confession it came...
The landscape of his body
The tension in his shoulders
Along his perfect jawline
His rough hands
His eyes raze me
Evoking absolute conviction
I am all he sees..
He is mine
The longing of ten lifetimes...
as he walked away,
For there was nothing left to say.
The words they once exchanged,
Were simply rearranged.
She began not caring anymore,
As she danced alone on the floor.
The music that filled her head,
Erased the lies that were said.
As she danced around the room,
10 feet away,I’ve lost the strength or will to say.The trail was once was so full and bright.I fall asleep this lonely night. Youthful days when I was me,Of sunny days when I was free.Remind me of the life yet known,Among them all, I feel alone. When I was...
sometimes go,When the shadows fall long,My mind drift back to aged memories,Of the crashing waves of my dreams.In the dappled sunlight of green and blue,The cooling blue breeze refreshes,Sharpening my resolve yet again,To peer once more into my yesterday.The lid’s creaky...
We trek across an amorphous dream
Vague shapes weave into obscurities
Drawing me in
Extending a hand behind a smiling guise.
Spiral front and then back again
In a barrel we spin in disarray
Reaching to wipe the tears from another eye.
Mind eclipses everything...
Theres a Man with a heart of gold
Does he know this has he been told?
He sees the world so logically
Emotions and feelings he says dont come easily
He has many wise words for people to hear
Those who listen are the ones he holds dear.
The lyrics he writes are his personal game...
A man cannot be a king when he has no castle.
A bird it cannot fly without its wings.
A dog cannot be trained without a master.
A song cannot be sung when there's no one there to sing.
The world is always flat in our dreams
and nothing is ever what it seams.
In the end , the...

The lord around can't get through. If love is creation of the ever new, what...
Rights Movement in the 1960s. It was a turbulent time. I can recall Army Tanks cruising Bloomfield Avenue, in Montclair, New Jersey. The National Guards were called out to maintain law and order.
As an inner-city youth who witnessed the hardships of my single parent run...
With you I'm with, when the night bell rings
In time of joy full of laughter
In time of pain when there's tears after
For the times I'm with you you make the good moments last
And you make the bad moments fast
Dreams of youth eternal.
The sweetheart of all she touched.
The heady laugh that charmed all men.
The world at her feet she embarked
A journey of such cruel outcome.
Yet how could she have known,
That the end would be so far away?
The night is cold though,
Cecilia turned up...
We can't forget our past no matter how hard we try.
But the tears we cry ,can wash away the demons inside.
It doesn't take much for our past to return.
A sound or a song, and those memories burn.
I wish we could forget the thoughts that haunt our soul.
So we could look forward...
Before you read my poem you should know it uses symbolism, and it's free verse poetry.
My flame used to roar at one point.
Orange, yellow, and red bursting brightly.
Happy I stayed.
No worries but to go play.
Years past and my flamed has dulled.
even when you're old and grey.
when I look at you I don’t see your body, I see your soul that shines through your eyes and brightens up my entire universe. when I look at you
I can feel your heart beating
in unison with mine,
the whole world melts away...
that old clock, we sit and watch as time moves on, sometimes having to hold tight that ever spinning C D of thoughts and doubts which prolong our growth to escape the fear of living.
For every person that starts to walk away from the chains of capture, endless light will be...
that is there to cling to;
I am the sun that makes you feel warm,
The wind that breathes life into your body,
The sea that kisses your beach each day.
I am the rain bringing water to keep you moving,
Lightning which sparks those precious moments,
Thunder to shout out loud how...

so tiny and pink,
makes us often wonder and think.
They put such smiles upon our faces,
running and playing in their own little oasis.
They've never known such pain or fear,
they are ours to...
