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...
that when I look at you I see your heart, it’s in your eyes
That bright and caring courage that drew me in to you in the first place
Like a tiny star you shine for me blazing so bright I can see nothing else
You dance in my memory spinning and shedding sparks of loving light...
class. It was to write a story or poem from a child's point of view.
There were others too. Write from the opposite genders point of view, animal point of view. And a few others.
I had fun with this one. I hope you will too.
OUCH MY KNEE
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...
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.....
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
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...
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...
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...
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...
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
something to kill some time
I know you're compelled to see me
To figure me out, to ***** me down
But I won't let you, I can't
You tell me that you die every single day
Because you know you're so close to finding what you need
So close that it become overwhelming
You need it...
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...
You won't believe what I just heard.
I promised I wouldn't say a word.
But you're my friend, so you I'll tell.
I know you'll keep it to yourself.
Come, I'll whisper in your ear;
I don't wouldn't want someone else to hear.
Now what I've told...
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.
bleeding the colors of yellow, red, deep shades of orange fading to dark purples, fading yet still to darkest of skies. He takes his slumber for the night, turning his reign over to his queen of the sky, with her soft moon light. With her she brings the soft twinkling of the...
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...
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...
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.
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...
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...
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.
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...
when my angry daughter, once again told me that I was dead to her. Things got better after a while, but she periodically decides I'm dead to her.
One Of Those Days
It's one of those dreary days
when it would be so easy to quit.
Just give up and not be bothered
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...
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.
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...
” 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...
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...
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...
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...
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?
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...
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...
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
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...
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.
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...
than life, a confident man,
With much more hair on his face than his head.
He stands relatively tall with his shoulders so broad,
Pretty much fills the entire six-foot bed.
His kindness within, he’s a positive soul,
With humour never failing to amuse.
He dresses in shorts, or...
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
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...
