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...
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...
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
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...
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...
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...
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...
weight of my wounds grows heavy
I have fought valiantly but I realize that my fight is over now
The power is gone from me to create or to expect anything at all
Now I am waiting, my sword across my knees, for the final stroke
My life has had its moments of glory and I have...
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...
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...
except for one thing, they have four feet.
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...
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.
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,
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...
and doing without direction. Loving but hollow I don't need to follow. Paranoid and devoid of joy but would be lovers always turn away. Chasing after my bliss through another always decays.
The lord around can't get through. If love is creation of the ever new, what...
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...
which i have no recollection.
Who are you and who am i?
Blind like a child in a dark room crawling towards a life unknown
Tenderness more scarce than Lust
In cities of Steel ,devoid of trust
we travel between now ,before and then
until it is time to repeat again.
not fake, but one that'll last.
We all have worries, these times are uncertain
I don't want preached at, l myself will remove the curtain
The curtain falls, and darkness once more
Comes, brooding to the fore
I can't say what l really feel or want to say
I can't find the...

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...
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...
to fill the emptiness inside
Years go by..flying so fast
We wonder still.... will it all last
What is it for, this endless toil
To own land, industry and oil
And when it all ends, it will be fine
We've paid our dues and drunk the wine
Said our prayers and followed like...
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...
each day waiting for your light to shine
it shades it's warmth from the world
it hides it's energy
it lives deep inside you
enveloped in darkness
but my words pierce your abyss
and we see flashes of electromagnetic radiation
they pour out of your flesh
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...
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...
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...
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.
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,
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
couch, in a place I once resided and filled my youth with endless doubt. Back then we cuddled in the glow of a 19″ T.V. screen; the ferrets scratched and we’d laugh and listen, faces close, cheek-to-cheek. In your jammies (your comfy clothes) and one of my many fleeces, we...
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...
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?
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...
One look from you, I bare my soul
Rarer than you will ever know
Forbidden love, friend or foe
I cannot hide, what I cannot show
Exquisite torture, I hesitate
Led by longing, lust, or fate
But through every pulse, you resonate
Made all the sweeter for the wait
Touch me now with...
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...
Quiet is the wait.
One wish, one dream,
Two voices searching,
Three little words.
Dark is the sky,
Lonely is the night,
Quiet is the wait.
You only know,
And we have hope,
I can only wish.
Dark is the sky,
Lonely is the night,
Quiet is the wait.
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...
only desire, no one else will do
You are the One for me
Like a key fits in the lock, we are perfectly matched
Nothing else can take your place
To feel the warmth of your switch
To gaze into your eyes with love
To hear your voice melt my heart
To feel the unconditional love in...
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...
It's been brewing inside me for sometime but I don't have a safe place to write. Someone might ask why I'm crying... I don't know if this is a finished work. Just thought I would share.
A child whose heart was chiseled away
Piece by piece
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...
