Every morning a new arrival.
A joy, a depression, a meanness,
some momentary awareness comes
As an unexpected visitor.
Welcome and entertain them all!
Even if they're a crowd of sorrows,
who violently sweep your house
empty of its furniture,
still treat each...
As you sleep hundreds of miles away,
I always find a way to wake up right next to you.
I imagine your eyes shut,
closing that window into your soul,
my view into your inner world.
But then your lashes finally open,
and as you shake your slumber,
we begin to toss...
The Oceans Shore
As I walk along the oceans shore
The feeling of peace, longing for more
As I sit upon soft wet sand
The gentle waves, touch my hand
This Aura of wonder and tranquility
Stretching as far as my eyes can see
Watching the reflections move with the...
I look in the mirror and to my disgrace,
a boy stands there, with a grownups face.
It's time I grew up, I don't act thirty three.
It's time to grow up,
live life selflessly.
I look at my faults, is there any surprise?
All the hurt that I've dealt because of my pride?
keep from lying
I bite my tongue to keep from telling
Of the hole that stretches from coast to coast
When the thunder breaks
I keep telling the same old story
Tell it like I still believe
It’s still the same old rain
When the thunder breaks
I cling on to the stain of us
When we can see the cool moon laughing in secret
Over the faint countryside,
And we rest, hand in hand.
Don't be downcast, the time will soon come
When we can have rest. Our small crosses will stand
On the bright edge of the road together,
And rain fall, and snow fall,
for a girl that he likes cause I don't really have no use for it because the girl I asked out said no and I feel like it can help other people
Through life and death, love and hate I will always love you from the bottom of my heart, your beauty is indescribable and your...
I know quite well
That, for all they care, I can go to hell,
But on earth indifference is the least
We have to dread from man or beast.
How should we like it were stars to burn
With a passion for us, we could not return?
If equal affection cannot be,
Let the more...
And red with a wild desire;
I love your eyes when the lovelight lies
Lit with a passionate fire.
I love your arms when the warm white flesh
Touches mine in a fond embrace;
I love your hair when the strands enmesh
Your kisses against my face.
Not for me the cold, calm kiss...
Crack the whip
tie me down
have me completely
gagged and bound
Spank me flog me
anything you say
please please please
Sir i will never disobey
Chain me rope me
as you wish
upside down or
even in a twist
Cane me bite me
fill out your desire
please please please
Sir before this...
the last limit of my power,
that the path before me was closed,
that provisions were exhausted
and the time come to take shelter in a silent obscurity.
But I find that thy will knows no end in me.
And when old words die out on the tongue,
new melodies break forth from the heart...
She barely stirs until, feeling my weight,
She brings herself to me, sharing her heat.
Her legs shyly part. She's there if I need her.
And I do, I do. So very much--helpless.
Around me, about me, within and without.
Chase the night from my bones; where I live, remind me.

that road for you.
You must travel it by yourself.
It is not far. It is within reach.
Perhaps you have been on it since you were born, and did not know.
Perhaps it is everywhere - on water and land.
~Walt Whitman, from Leaves of Grass.
I meant to never give it another thought
Holding on to you so tightly as we danced
The sweet sound of you singing in my ear
It seems I forgot to forget
I was determined to never look into your eyes again
If I never look you can't make me weak in the knees
we sleep across, to the Gate
I lose you to you, that
is my Snow-Comfort,
say, that Jerusalem is,
say, as if I were this
as if you were
as if without us we could be we,
I open your leaves, forever,
you bless, you...
Slam me against it.
Bite my bottom lip until I cry out and let me do the same to you.
Take your frustration out on me.
Let me feel it in the way you kiss my lips.
In the way you grip my hips.
Let me feel your love.”
One of my favorites...
The Road Not Taken
Two roads diverged in a yellow wood,
And sorry I could not travel both
And be one traveler, long I stood
And looked down one as far as I could
To where it bent in the undergrowth;
Then took the other, as just as fair...
that sits you down, gives you a drink of water, and pats you on top of the head. But I say a good love is one that casts you into the wind, sets you ablaze, makes you burn through the skies and ignite the night like a phoenix; the kind that cuts you loose like a wildfire and you...
And, the depths of our own pain as well.
Not just in our thoughts,
Or, our feelings.
But, in our souls.
In our hearts.
In each of our cells.
Energy. Vibration. Auras.
We feel that too.
We absorb it.
Us, Sensitive souls.
It can all...
He drew pictures that nobody saw.
He was most artistic late at night,
In the bathroom out of sight.
He kept a secret no one knew,
He didn't tell a soul his gallery grew.
His drawings were different, no paper or pen.
But needed a bandage now and again.
We stood by the river under...
only butterfly soft
then big eye,
I play you Mozart and Bach and pick you flowers, cheerful and gentle.
Yellow and blue and purple stick, I write for you
A caring verse, a verse against your heart to keep.
Because human, yes you, I like you...
I am not there; I do not sleep.
I am a thousand winds that blow,
I am the diamond glints on snow,
I am the sunlight on ripened grain,
I am the gentle autumn rain.
When you awaken in the morning’s hush,
I am the swift uplifting rush
Of quiet birds in circled flight.
The moving finger writes; and, having writ,
Moves on; nor all your piety nor wit
Shall lure it back to cancel half a line,
Nor all your tears wash out a word of it.
Oh, threats of hell and hopes of paradise!
One thing at least is certain: THIS life flies.

my heart) i am never without it (anywhere
i go you go, my dear; and whatever is done
by only me is your doing, my darling)

' fetching it to me with full hands,
How could I answer the child? I do not know what it is any more than he.
I guess it must be the flag of my disposition, out of hopeful

A scented gift and remembrancer...

It is the way that you show your partner that you care about them. Every person has their own idea of what they might consider romantic. For some it will be dressing up for the other or buying flowers or jewelry. There is no way to know what is romantic without knowing the...

Push off, and sitting well in order smite

To sail beyond the sunset, and the baths
Of all the western stars, until I die.

Oh! There it is!
The blood of my Mothers’
My white sheets
Like a bouquet of English roses.
tea or coffee
When I visit you
Nor do offer me
The wine or juice
I have thirst to satisfy my soul
And only a cup of love can do
This cup will have
The tears from eyes
Emotions from heart
Thoughts from mind
Naivety from the lips
The Cup of love will drip
closer and let me show you, what’s on my mindAs I wrap my arms around you and squeeze you tightI feel the butterflies in your stomach deep in flightI can feel your body shiver at my mere touchAs your breathing becomes heavy and very roughWe whisper sweetness in each other...
You may be the one
Who immediately caught my attention
Left me feeling enchanted
I thought you were an angel
I thought there was a kindness
Someone showed me I was wrong
You might be the one
You may be the one
who captivated me with your ways
How I was...
O my heart, let us burn the dear dreams that are dead,
Here in this wood let us fashion a funeral pyre
Of fallen white petals and leaves that are mellow and red,
Here let us burn them in noon's flaming torches of fire.
We are weary, my heart, we are weary, so long we have borne...
maybe a slam poem? Anyways, I wrote it, and I hope you enjoy it. It may have some errors, as I wrote it just now without correcting it.
Them, Us, Me
You don't know the pain you cause when you make your jokes
Calling him, her, them fat
Calling them ugly...
don't want to overcome the distance
I don't want to deal with the heartache
I don't want to waste this chance
What should i do?
Be your best friend and let it go?
Forget these feelings and what we have?
Hold onto you and let you know?
It can never happen
We live too far away
Skirts go up , Pants go down , Body to body , Skin to skin , When its stiff stick it in , Goes in dry , Comes out wet , The longer its in , The stronger it gets , It comes out dripping , & it starts to sag , its not what you think though , Its a Lipton Tea Bag Cx
love in night to charm my eyes in slumber deep. Dreams drift bewildered in my head above til’ morning seizes passion’s grip from sleep.
The moon shines careless on this lonely soul and beckons prey to seek the hunter’s fang. As dark expands in shadows to console, they...
room for you. You are alone with your few sheaves of rice.
My boat is crowded, it is heavily laden, but how can I turn you
Your young body is slim and swaying; there is a twinkling
smile in the edge of your eyes, and your robe is coloured like the
before the street begins,
and there the grass grows soft and white,
and there the sun burns crimson bright,
and there the moon-bird rests from his flight
to cool in the peppermint wind.
Let us leave this place where the smoke blows black
and the dark street winds and bends...
