When I born, I Black,
When I grow up...

Out of our mother's womb we come crying.
We had no choice being born into a world of threats and bribing.
A mind we did not make or choose for ourselves absorbs all our 5...
One Last Battle...One Last Stand

At the gates of Hell I stand,
Ready to enter as a man,
Sought out by evil here,
It shall find me without fear.
Sitting in a tree
Just how happy can I be?
Today I'm finally free
You'll never hold me back
Climbing up so high
Just staring at the sky
In a world that cannot lie
Yeah this is pretty much a huge part of my life thanks to my friends. If you guys want to read some of my words here is a link to them. http://dustinstrong.com/category/poetry

"The Man Who Thinks He Can" - If you think you are beaten, you are.
If you think you dare not, you don't.
If you'd like to win but you think you can't,
It's almost a cinch...
Pools of blood
Make a mess
Try not to drown
Pools of blood
Red scarlet lines
Pools of blood
Don't get caught
That happiness I thought you killed off
Came rushing back the second we talked
Why am I holding onto you
When there is nothing to hold onto
And I hope you know, it takes a lot...
Nothing I won't do
Everything I will pursue
Not a thing I wouldn't say
To know you'll be okay
My sky's gone blue to black
My soul's under attack
Storm clouds forever set
I don't do booze nor smoke,
But what if I do?
A fictional thought,
It's nothing but a joke.
See me, see you,
Lurking in the dark,
Those funny pretty moments
The Princess....... -
She will become my queen of hearts
She is the Princess in my hands
She is the blood through my veins,
the wind in my hair.
Candlelight and champagne...
I have lost my mind.
And I am done now.
And this doesn't bother me anymore.
Not one bit.
And I think that is how I know that I have lost my mind.
But I wish the voices in my head...
By David Kirby
I have met them in dark alleys, limping and one-armed;
I have seen them playing cards under a single light-bulb
and tried to join in, but they...
I never gave a second thought
My way of life: happy, alone
My mind and heart never fought
Then I saw her, standing there
I lived my days the way I please
In quietness, in solitude...

In The Shower - Lusty hot wet steaminess
Soapy lathered creaminess
Lips on lips drenched in a kiss
Hips on hips delirious
I lift you up with gentle ease
You wrap your legs around...
The song of the crow and the dove
Staring at the eyes of the crow
and seeing the world so black and white,
Keeps me dreaming the rainbow
that I haven’t seen to my left and...
Definition - Loving someone is standing
precariously on the edge of the building,
ready to jump.
It is lying in a flooded bathtub holding your breath
until your lungs give out,

Darkness overwhelms the light
Seasons bring different display
Venus emerges on the summer phrase
In a universe...
Love And Pain - Love and Pain,
Love and Pain,
Why are the ones closest give the worst pain.
Pain and Love,
Pain and Love,
We see flying high a painfully beautiful dove.

on swing of your iris
in this chandelier elations of motions,
these elongations of devotion...
I Want - I want to love you simply,
by the unspoken word of timber:
to the flame which transforms it to ash
I want to love you simply,
by unexpressed signs of clouds
to the rain...
Man, Why don’t guys just understand,
All woman want is to feel loved, and secure. Why don’t they give a damn?
Only talking about what they want and need,
What about your seed...
In Your Heart
© Thomas S. Carver
He was so proud of his little girl
It was her very first day of school
He walked with her to school that day
And she held his hand all the way...
Feathers fall like rain,
They twinkle to the ground in vain,
By my side we jump into the night,
Like a wraith your hands closed tight,
Skin like snow stained forever red...
A Friendship Lost By Brenda J. Metz - I remember the time not long ago
When we laughed and shared it all
We were the very best of friends

Nobody listens and laughs at...

Wishing On A Star For U;)) - Wishing on a star
I gaze up at the sky each night
and find the brightest star.
It's always waiting there for me
so close, but yet so far.

I come with no wrapping or pretty pink bows.
I am who I am from my head to my toes.
I tend to get loud when speaking my mind.
Even a little crazy some of the time...
Guilt runs through my veins
My heart holds so much pain
My dignity has been slain
Rememberence always stays
Every time I try
To look you in the eye
My soul just slowly dies...
A Poem... - is like a body of woman.
It is gentle, light and beautiful.
It has sensitive points,
with a simple touch
makes it to vibrate.
It is strong and delicate.

I Love Poetry (this Is My Poem) - I love the way you look at me
i love the way you stare
i love your big blue eyes
your long and wavy hair
You heart is made of gold

You are the gold to my coast, the Vegemite to my toast.
You're the sea to the sand, the beer in my hand.
The thong to my foot,the Ronda to my KutKut.

Darkness hides and
Darkness falls and
Dark inside and
Our hearts with doubt
There's a dream in you and me
only butterfly soft
then big eye,
I play you Mozart and Bach and pick you flowers, cheerful and gentle.
Yellow and blue and purple...
My heart ache but I don't recall
A reasoning on it nor the cause
I ponder to no results
What could hurt me without a name?
But of course it's my brain
Why do you make my heart...
My Love your glance
Your glance like a glancing blow has pierced up to base
Has reconciled both heart and soul in one hypnotic case
The sight itself has acted as a screen to...
