after many years
of hard work and a long voyage
you stand in the centre of your room,
house, half acre, square mile, island, country
knowing at last how you got there,
and say I own this,
is the same moment when the trees unloose
there soft arms from around you,
the birds take...
isn’t wasted at the end of the day
When you’re in bed thinking about all the things
You could’ve done,
You could’ve said,
All the empty boxes left on your to do list
Time is wasted
When you’re standing on a rock at the edge of a waterhole
And decide to not jump...
darkness in my eyes
soul, so true but
life full of lies
I hide under, covered in shame
and say to myself
I've got no one else to blame
No one else to call
I've just got me, myself for all
I've got the sky
with stars shining high,
rivers flowing down.
I feel like a clown...
Silent and starving, I prowl through the streets.
Bread does not nourish me, dawn disrupts me, all day.
I hunt for the liquid measure of your steps.
I hunger for your sleek laugh,
your hands, the color of a savage harvest,
hunger for the pale stones of your...
I though of this one. This is one of my favorites which means a lot to me. Shelley wrote beautifully with a heart which must have been full of passion. Enjoy. ~J
by Percy Bysshe Shelley
The fountains mingle with the river,
And the rivers with the ocean...
Yes, I know this was a song, but the song lyrics read like a beautiful poem. So I decided to add it to this ep group. I found out that this song was written as a love poem/song in 1957 by a British singer named Ewan MacColl for his lover, Peggy Seeger. http://en.wikipedia.org...
It doesn't interest me what you do for a living. I want to know what you ache for and if you dare to dream of meeting your heart's longing.
It doesn't interest me how old you are. I want to know if you will risk looking like a fool for love, for your dream, for the adventure of...

I seemed to have loved you numberless times, in numberless forms...
In life afer life, age after age, forvever.
My spellbound heart has made and remade the necklace of songs,
That you take as a gift, wear around your neck in your many forms,
In life after life, in age after age...
and watched her slowly bloom;
and as her petals would unfold,
you grew drunk on her perfume.
Have you ever seen her dance,
her leaves all wet with dew;
and quivered with a new romance -
the wind, he loved her too.
Have you ever longed for her,
times to be nice and kind to many
They allowed me to be apart of their lives
Most of the times was only to take away my honor
It’s my fault to be easily fooled
For being so naive
Thinking that they won’t hurt me or lie
After many attempts
My confidence vanished

before deletion. I came to EP 3 years ago to share poetry and I shall leave sharing poetry. Enjoy this one by Robert Frost. Farewell. :)
NOTHING GOLD CAN STAY by Robert Frost
Nature's first green is gold
Her hardest hue to hold.
Her early leaf's a flower;
it's funny how hello is always accompanied with goodbye it's funny how good memories can start to make you cry it's funny how forever never seems to last it's funny how much you'd lose if you forgot about your past it's funny how “friends” can just...
Called it a dull and dirty brwon,
Wished for the deep blue of an ocean,
Where admirers hearts would drown,
And it pained me when I realised,
You'd never see it like I do,
The way your eyes hint at a story,
That I want to read right throuh,
They hold specks of stolen sunlight...
not lost in you,
Not lost, although I long to be
Lost as a candle lit at noon,
Lost as a snowflake in the sea.
You love me, and I find you still
A spirit beautiful and bright,
Yet I am I, who long to be
Lost as a light is lost in light.
Oh plunge me deep in love—put out
Loneliness is what i feel
I feel so alone
I feel so isolated
The emptyness in my heart
Can not be feeled by any soul
I am surounded by people but yet i feel so alone
I am in a room so small and so dark
Fear takes over me, i scream but no one hears me
This room so small and tiny...
So you know everything. You leap
into the boat and begin rowing. But listen to me.
Without fanfare, without embarrassment, without
any doubt, I talk directly to your soul. Listen to me.
Lift the oars from the water, let your arms rest, and
your heart, and heart’s little...

Did gyre and gimble in the wabe:
All mimsy were the borogoves,
And the mome raths outgrabe.

The jaws that bite, the claws that catch!
Beware the Jubjub bird, and shun
The frumious Bandersnatch...

He creates powerfully romantic, sensual images that speak to being human, and our desire for romantic love. Beautiful!
Place your hands upon me
like a big tent preacher
and with a whisper
heal all that aches
Put your lips upon my forehead
and glance your eyes
to the sky...
There is a pleasure in the pathless woods,
There is rapture on the lonely shore,
There is society, where none intrudes,
By the deep sea, and music in it's roar:
I love not man the less, but Nature more,
From these our interviews, in which I steal,
From all I may be, and...
Sanguine colours circulated around her as she grows,
The room fills with light as her cry resonates as she enters the world,
The world... if only she knew what she was getting into
The arms of her mother leave her behind to find another
She screams as she takes off in a metal...
nothing in all of my life had ever been more beautiful.They tore off their glowing garments andpresented themselves naked.They were an open bottle for the worldto drink fromWho you ask with eager eyes?I will tell you, but you must promise methat you will look for themand...
As if, through a mist, a first loom;
You are a fine line that holds beauty
So fragile it seems, yet so pretty.
You are the wind that grace my meadows
Of thoughts and lights up my weary shadows;
You are the sun after my night
That lights up everything in sight.
not even for a day, because --
because -- I don't know how to say it: a day is long
and I will be waiting for you, as in an empty station
when the trains are parked off somewhere else, asleep.
Don't leave me, even for an hour, because
then the little drops of anguish will all...
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, and just as fair,
And having perhaps the better claim,
Because it was grassy and wanted...
slower, the floor
cold, i'm getting old
and dead and shot after
sore laughter i feel like
an actor for death
in the stage of life
trying hard to stop
to hold my breath
to murder me
under the blue
and bleak of the sea
I will take you to museums, and parks, and monuments, and kiss you in every beautiful place, so that you can never go back to them without tasting me like blood in your mouth.
I will destroy you in the most beautiful way possible. And when I leave you will finally understand...
weeping in the town you rule
a crown for it, a crown you'll wear
with the frown upside down.
A smile waits, creates
its own space, waits
until it gets, late.
For fate has met, its
other date, a date far away
some time later, but not today.
Because today, you lay
it’s a shade, sometimes sunny
Live every moment here to your heart’s content
The time that is here may not be tomorrow
One who loves you whole-heartedly
It is difficult meet that person
If there is someone like that somewhere
That person is more beautiful than all
close to silence
I'm sure that you have heard
The gentle constant ringing
In the space between two words
When you really pay attention
You find it's not just in your head
But instead is whispers of the words
The world has left unsaid
It's "I love you" left unspoken
Seems quite appropriate right now
All blossoms will wilt,
each youth fold into the mold of age.
Wisdom and virtue never last forever.
Your heart must always be ready to leave
and ready to begin again,
must form new bonds
with courage and without regret.
Every beginning offers...
and it's hard to breath.
It surrounds me and feels like death.
Down, it pulls me.
Deep into the abyss.
Down, it chokes me.
Cant see through the mist.
Bleeds from the inside out.
Shake, from constant...
clear waterThat drips upon a stoneIn forests far and silentWhere quiet plays alone.Her thoughts are like the lotusAbloom by sacred streamsBeneath the temple archesWhere quiet sits and dreams.Her kisses are the rosesThat glow while dusk is deepIn Persian garden closesWhere quiet...
dripping out my arms, falling apart
Screaming within, love, hate and fire
Come wash away my sins, show me desire
Take my hand , lead me through the dark,
Show me how to live again, while I express my pain through art
Walking through the flames, burning like it's hell, cast away...
