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.
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...
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
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 I climb over these mountains that crowd the path that I walk on, wondering hoping praying that the rain will stop and the sun will shine as I reach my predestination while focusing on being great in this nation where so many have died and sacrificed to end segregation yet we...
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,
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...
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...
I have an endless amount.
Yet you don't see them,
So I stopped keeping count.
You make my heart have a certain bounce.
Before you I felt dead, but now I think I've found life again.
Without you, I don't think I'd be here.
With you, I'm the happiest person out there.
Just how much I go through.
It's worse at night.
Feelings come over me, and I wish to die.
Most nights at least.
I'm happy that I'm starting to find peace.
If not, I'm afraid I would have to leave.
This place we call earth for eternity.
Deeply, I am sorry.
If not for you, my...
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...
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...
When I was 17 I had a FRENCH PENPAL AnaliseI went to stay with her in France - near PARISShe taught me a lot of thingsWe had a wonderful time togetherExploring PARIS and each other !She taught me how to FRENCH KISSMy BF's and GF's have all been grateful to her for teaching me the...
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...
Sadness right in the whites,
A madness that she only truly confessed at night.
Head always aching, from sleep deprivating.
Lack of sleep, turned into "sleep is for a weakling."
Soon she's skipping out on meals,
Doesn't eat a 'meal' for a week.
To work, to play, to love to ****?
& still remain mostly unscathed.
They maintain a home, a friendship, a love, a family unfazed.
While some of us suffer, suffer, suffer.
Maybe it's because we don't have a buffer.
No loved ones to show us the way.
We have to find our own path...
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...
A word and a dream.
A dream of a flightless bird.
The yearning to fly
And the willingness to learn to do so.
I guess that's how dreams are created.
With a word and your ability to take a chance
Like the feather of a land bound bird.
It will soon drift through the wind and learn...
we say goodbye to the lonely night. As the sunbeam shines upon your face, the world becomes a brighter place. Yout smile is tender, kind, and sweet, with love that knocks me off my feet. The day is glorious now you're awake, it's amazing the difference one can make. Come take...
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...
laid on thee,
Thou already became my enormous glee.
Thy majestic presence which captivates me,
And each person around me, seems to agree.
Thou have enthralled me with thy complete splendor.
I have given thee my highest endeavor.
With infatuation, not one can measure.
A place where no one ever dares to roam. The place where the youngest ones are born and the eldest go do die. This is the place that breeds fear in men and had long since been forgotten in the world of common understanding. It is the fruit hanging from natures tree in the hollow...
where and when to start
Your love and kindness warms my heart
But theres another one who took the part
Why did you have to hide
If id have known id take your side
But you are just a little late
This feeling is the one I hate
Theres two of you theres one of me
My heart is...
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...
Reread his letter multiple times before putting it down.
He never had a reason out of the hoi polloi, but now he did.
Slowly, yet blissfully,
he let it slide onto his skin.
The liquid that kept him alive, is now oozing out from deep within.
Warm and bright.
Pain. There's was no...
and your eyes so blue
Your hand in mine
Just laying next to me so divine.
Sublime. Your voice, your smile
I don't care if you stay forever, or for a while.
Sometimes I just stare at you.
You, and your eyes so blue.
No one will ever take your place,
No one tells your jokes, or...
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...
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...
You're not here beside me
But you remain by me still
Not here, but there,
But where I wonder?
Perhaps on the boundaries of my heart just over yonder.
Although in my mind,
I wonder if it's true
My heart tells me so
That I can feel it is with you.
For it skips a beat when
room carrying thyself.
I thought about thee, is this oneself?
The shock when thou art the replacement,
But it seems thou art an excitement.
Thou art not the person I yearned for,
But you don’t give me lots of labor.
And thy appearance is breath-taking,
And you are worth it to...
blinded by desire..
a passion deep.. that once burned through
i never wanted to face your words were untrue
but time has past...
and i see clearly all your decitful ways..
all my heartache and pain..
as i shatter the glass of how you once enslaved my heart..
the red haze of...
not knowing where my mind will go.
Where the ball will land is unknown.
I Lay a 50 on the table and place a bet on the day because the symptoms they are shown.
How do I overcome the random mixture that is played if the days escape is still a minds game?
-I wrote this about...
These holes you dug to find my heart.
Now I bury my dreams with sand,
But I sink right in and search these skies,
For your cold hand, to take in mine,
That you would help me rise again.
A thousand times you told me then,
That we would live forever.
But what do those words so...
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.....
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,
person that I be-wed.
Read my story... listen to what is said.
These nights are no longer a desire
For in this bed, there is no fire.
Cold, emptiness is what lives here
Roll over and touch you, HA, I wouldn't dare.
I'd be afraid of the attitude that I would receive
Play with my hair, not my fears.
Show me you care, & that you're really here.
Kiss me and mean it, or your *** can beat it.
Tell me you love me, & let me see it, in your eyes.
Whisper to me saying how you don't care, what anyone thinks, but you swear, you've never felt this way...
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.
Strands woven on gold, bronze and earth. A few swatches of winter snow, as well as those that dare bare their naked crowns to the sky.
How many cities, how many peoples scattered like diamonds on green and blue across the wide earth, and washed down the river of...
But i can't seem to get them out
The truth lies inside of me
I want to tell you about
There's a thousand tears left unshed
Behind these blue eyes
With every harsh word
A part of me dies
My light went out so long ago
How to make it shine again i really don't...
