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?
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
not, we ask why
When, for us life is good, we forget to care
To love others, to listen and to share
The sun shines high up in the sky
The world below, rotates, not asking why
We forget others have worries and strife
Stressed by daily struggles and what is called life
Your old mans old quiet lesson.
Let the smaller ones go, they still have a life to grow.
Sometimes you'll drag up branches from the bottom, and sometimes you'll lose a good one.
And sometimes while you're reeling in your line, you'll realize you're trying to catch yourself.
how will you be celebrating Burns night? I trust that you won't have to wander too many a weary foot before you tuck in to your haggis and tatties.
And being POETS day you have all day Saturday to recover if you indulge in a wee nip ....
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...
Let me fall and disappear,
Let me become non-existent anymore,
Push me off I beg you,
My hands are burning me from holding onto this rope,
I’m holding on, thinking you are still holding onto the other end,
I’m wrong, I’m foolish, I’m stupid, reckless for letting my heart...
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...
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.
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...
when spring brought flowers and sweet sounds to my ears
The days when we were exploring life and finding out about each other
Good days filled with working and building and nights filled with passion
Being so tired at the days end but never too tired to make love to you
and 4th, 2015
I miss you terribly
As I write this I have no way of knowing
If you will ever get to read it
As I write this
It is over a month since we talked
I did complete your present before your birthday
This is in addition
I can only image what you must...
both worlds, but I'm a god damn galaxy.
Together we could have been a universe.
Instead he chose a star that'll burn so bright it destroys itself leaving him with no light.
And while he fumbles in the darkness he'll see the twinkles of the constellations i left behind.
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...
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...
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...
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...
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,
afternoon, feet aching, sweat beading down your forehead and a smelly man in front of you, you've been standing in the same spot for oh about an hour and you're pretty sure that bird near the trash can is a animatronic, in some strange miracle the line takes one step forward...
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.....
and they can tell. The wolves of the world share that detail. One by one they track us down, to feed on hearts little by little they try to drain who and what we are.
Soft hearts search the world for a kindred soul, spreading love and compassion where they roam. Taken...
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
And dragons breathing fire
I saw skeletons and demons
And the ugliest old vampire
There are monster and banshees
And rats with big teeth
There are zombies and dead guys
With my funeral wreath
I know that I heard harpies
And maybe a grizzly bear
Don't give me...
” my tutor has said,
But ‘things’ always got in the way.
“Pick up that book,” his voice would command,
“You must read a chapter a day!”
I put a book on the side, right next to my bed.
And for a week, I only gave it a glance.
Even the book then began to demand...
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...
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...
beyond your words
I thought you would love me with the strength of a storm
I was totally wrong
You are just a soft breeze
You can't reach my soul
You are playing with fire
You can't burn my desire
You are a little dreamer
You don't worth my time.
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...
when you look at me? What do you see, when you think of me? What do you dream, when you dream of me?
Do you see, the frightened little girl, that hides inside? Do you see, the woman afraid to be free? Do you see, me holding together a tattered heart?
I often wondered, and...
Beauty, love, all the things that I need
I'm lacking, I'm lacking, I never succeed
I'm forever in need, always in want
And all I can do is sit and watch
As you give away those things I need
To everyone but never me
How easily they fly from your arms
To those who I see...
ramparts. I'm a silent giant defeating the tyrant. The villain in me making it's plea. Willing and and dealing to keep me weak. Telling me what it's going to be when it never ends up being reality. I'm on the train and the strain is on me. Spring will bring my weary soul to life...
It touches me softly, I almost miss its grace, I am not sure if it is love or just love disguised as hate
I've thought i've known love but this I am not sure, for my heart beats with passion but not with passion pure
Love seems to be in my reach, it slides through my...
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...
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...
Light scars glimmer on these wrists
You see my scars when I turn and I twist
Right in plain sight but nobody sees, right in plain sight take a good look at me
Long dark hair, caramel skin
Beauty outside and hatred within
Sin in my blood and blood on my hands
mean spirited spite of slaves. Disguised as capitalism, **** talking to their graves. What do all humans want, deep down, to feel safe and belong? Competitive rabies, The ego will always lose, something is wrong.
Deep down we all want to belong, sing our song and be...
game, so we'll play extra innings, and make some overtime plays. I am so happy we finally got drafted on the same team. I'll deffently induct you into my heart's hall of fame.
Call the scouts back, no new talent left to aquire. You are love's MVP. I present to you now my heart...
hot and hurtful sand
that grow nothin' but
rise'n in the scorch'n,
inside cold minds,
whole cloth lies
stink putrid with
that cracks young will.
inside cold hands,
stings wide eyes
and galls thin flesh.
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.
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...
something you want
you never look at me that way any other time
stalling and waiting, we're wasting f*cking time
I do it every time I'm with you that's probably why time flys by.
sighing, I can't stand to look at you right now.
I want your attention
don't talk to me
