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...
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...
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...
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...
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...
but one with its benefits, now the question remains should I still go down this path till I snap or shall I bring back in that force that makes me who I really am and forget it all. If anyone can solve this riddle for me...then you might get a free poem of your choice from me...
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...
Somewhere to place a wine glass,
Somewhere to place a head.
Somewhere to lose your eyesight to,
When I’m lying down in your bed
Somewhere to catch the toast crumbs,
Somewhere to rest my book
Somewhere to hold my fella’s eyes
When he has that glazed over look.
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...
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...
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.
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...
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
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...
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...
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...
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...
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 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...
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...
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...
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...
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...
what and why you would cast some thing of such beauty and power aside.....like waves rolling into tides.... tearing down.... breaking .....apart.... lost then found like heaven and hell....rolled into one.....
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...
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...
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.
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...
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...
argue and have disagreements, and it isn’t unusual for them to sometimes get into fights. But Denis was different. He was odd, even by the standards of a bully, Denis was unusual. As early as primary school if he had been closely diagnosed, someone should have recognized the...
undone by the pains of this life, nor might the most gruesome agony death have to offer. My heart crumbles when it senses the pain in yours for which I am to blame. I lay next to you at night weeping, reaching out to touch you gently as if you had been mortally wounded by my...
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.
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...
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...
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...
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...
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?
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...
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...
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...
word in the English language. And the single strongest emotion a human being can feel. When it is true and real, nothing can break it.There are many different kinds of love- love for a parent, grandparent, aunt, uncle, cousin or sibling; love for a child; and perhaps the kind of...
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
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
