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.
for lost time.
You watch her flit between the mirrors and the boys,
slurring drunken kisses between the lines,
she was prettier before, you surmise.
Now she laughs easy, but it isn’t real,
you remember the tire-tracks and the shrill
of nightingales and the rain.
Gather round the campfire, lads
And listen to my tale.
About a dear named Bambi
Who went down a crooked trail.
Now Bambi was a sweet young thing
Who deerly loved her mother.
If she had lived the tale I tell
Would end like all the others.
But mother died in...
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...
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 little flower to me
It has beautiful color, drawn your dazzling smile
Those beautiful eyes, mesmerizing gaze
When I look deep into your eyes
I know, there is something
I walk into you
Every breath, I'm deeper into you
I walk into the fire
Where the heart was blue...
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
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...
It seems like they freeze right in front of my face.
Harden there like a mask to constrict my flow
Form into a shell of me until we are standing toe to toe.
My efforts, my words which have come to define me
Standing here in front, now surely looking to confine me.
Shes such a...
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...
So sure, cynical, seeking salvation
But setting sabotage through skepticism,
Singing specious songs of sacrilegious subterfuge and
Standing sideways, I'm
Sowing seeds of psychedelic
Sojourns to serendipitous solar seas
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
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...
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?
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...
diamonds, chandeliers and chintz,
with fragrance of jasmine in spring
she grew like a wild flower,
but her mind restless with the din.
She followed the sound of the sweet melody she carried within.
She walked away from the unquiet minds , flew away with her fantasies she...
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...
Get out of your head
The vibrating baseline
Progressive build and breakdown
I am the flicker of a shadow
Running rampant in your mind
The glimpse of a smile
Slowly spreading across your face
I am the whisper you hear
Your eyes closed for a moment
The tension in your body...
I hear the war-drum roll.
I feel it deeply,
we're falling steeply,
And still the war-drum rolls.
I see the fire burning,
The flames have kissed my skin.
The bombs now drop,
They'll never stop,
We've lost all care within.
The walls we build divide us,
They isolate us...
to check my breath
rest your head upon my breasts
close your eyes, heart in ache...
Let me feel you´re there by me
softly hold my hands and so
my dream would be one of loving
bodies, hearts and souls...
and arms open
Protected yet accepting
Ready to take on
Man or woman
I don’t suppose it would matter
Especially not when you’re all alone
But I am not alone!
Guess I never was….
But now certainly never more!!!
I have my tree!
This tree and me
and watched the water swirl colors of rust. My body dipped low near an amber-lit glow that washed over the layering dust. My skin soaked in steam and the burn brought a dream the one with my favorite sound. Where the wind howled my name and in it’s own gentle way pushed my...
You’re a drug; I need my fix
Please take away the pain
I need you here with me
To sooth this anxiety I’m feeling
Take my hand and hold it
Your body gives me healing
The warmth of your touch
Spreads through my veins
You’re freeing my soul
Breaking the chains
and blue eyes
Daddy's little pearl
Where the heck has she gone
And who's this teenage girl
Things have changed so rapidly
Since you were my Nonny Bear
Now your thoughts have turned to boys
Your make-up and your hair
Once I held you in my arms
Like a treasure I had...
Where would I be
If you hadn't given me a push?
A push, to shoot for something,
To shine brightly.
Where would I be
If you hadn't given me a chance?
Where would I be
If I hadn't heard that song?
Your light, helpful advice.
You are the hand
That guided me...
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...
was trampled upon.
I had done nothing wrong, but an illusion had already been spun.
They were the victors, I became their unsuspecting victim.
Caught up in a web of deceit, others willingly aided their goals; scraping in more dough.
What can steal your appearance, making you...
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...
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...
Til her words said "Goodbye"
I know what I heard
And, of course, I know why
So I have to suffer
That's just the way
And to not 'have her'
In the end, is okay
It's this interim period
I'm having trouble with
Trying to get serious
And, not slitting my wrists
They'd tell you i don't care
That I don't wake each morn
And wish that you were there
If candy could mislead
Then sweets would turn out sour
Then maybe I could say with truth
I don't think of you each hour
If music didn't tell the truth
There'd be heartache in my song...
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 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.
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...
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...
lovers stand in shadows
Now the game begins
Standing hand in hand
Eyes anywhere but her breasts
Hoping he won't faint
Whisper nonsense words
How nice her hair is tonight
Just to keep her there
She smiles in the dark
Shyly leaning in to him
Hands upon his chest...
who made me feel like you did. Again.
I'll never love so deep and raw. Again.
I'll always be searching for you again and. Again.
I'll never kiss the way we did. Again.
I'll never make love so passionately. Again.
I'll never compromise myself. Again
I'll never let things unsaid...
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.....
there is pain in my heart. Time, time never heals, past, past is a shadow growing as time flows past is a shadow that consumes my soul, tomorrow, tomorrow is illusion, illusion of death and life is living on the edge of hope, life is the mania after dying in emptiness or a glass...
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...
Tension in the air, neurotoxins spreading faire. Madness and despair, so serious, all the political hair. Everyone is rare, life will go on beyond this economic scare. Sharing the creations of caring. Daring to bare the love that's inherently there.
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,
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...
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...
The soft caress of fingers across your skin
Heart beating fast and stomach tensed
Here comes the poison, here comes the hate
Pushed against you, forced inside
Bathed in foulness, bathed in sickness
Left to simmer
And you can feel it's exhiliration, it's excitement and...
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...
But the ceiling needs a different tone
And you know, these bars are stained
This hard concrete needs sweeping
And these bare walls just won't do...
I'm tired of all the weeping
With no pictures of you
I'd like to see some fur
A little, here and there..
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...
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,
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...
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...
