i like my body when it is with your
body. It is so quite a new thing.
Muscles better and nerves more.
i like your body. i like what it does,
i like its hows. i like to feel the spine
of your body and its bones, and the trembling
-firm-smooth ness and which i will
again and again...
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;
Is love found in holding hands?
In quiet whispers?
In looks shared across a crowded room?
Is love shared in notes?
Is love felt with a quickening pulse?
A feeling of loss in her absence?
A longing to see but a glimpse of her?
Is love heard through...
ago. It's called Masks.
I was running through a forest,
with no idea how I'd gotten there.
The trees were tall, and the sky gray,
as I ran like a scared hare.
I stopped, and looked about,
but the gloom was all around me.
I saw the sun, setting silent,
as twilight settled...
in beauty, like the night
Of cloudless climes and starry skies;
And all that's best of dark and bright
Meet in her aspect and her eyes;
Thus mellowed to that tender light
Which heaven to gaudy day denies.
One shade the more, one ray the less,
Had half impaired the nameless...
heard him, the dead man,
But still he lay moaning:
I was much further out than you thought
And not waving but drowning.
Poor chap, he always loved larking
And now he’s dead
It must have been too cold for him his heart gave way,
Oh, no no no, it was too...
for the principal of my high school as a gift since he was retiring. I wrote this in his perspective.
I Close My Eyes
Beauty is timeless and so is love
Living my final days as a leader of ____ High is more than enough
Year by year, students come and go like seasons
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...
Burn for everything you have ever wanted. For everything you have ever lost, for every crack in your heart and every fraction of every irreplaceable moment.
Burn high for love.
For fear. For life.
Burn as fast and as long as you can.
You must burn, burn higher.
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.
to your full cup, my sweet,
Since I my pallid face between your hands have laid,
Since I have known your soul, and all the bloom of it,
And all the perfume rare, now buried in the shade;
Since it was given to me to hear on happy while,
The words wherein your heart spoke all its...
trail for the holy grail
a frail ship for my shoaly sail
pale moment, for the glory gale
yet these tales prevail.
But the rail has derailed
and the ship has sailed.
The Bale i Held
in the Sleep i slept
And the Dream i dreamt
Give me rest,
From doubt, and fear
Sun find my face,
Light find my heart,
Song find my story,
Smile find my face,
Be at peace,
Be at peace,
For my life is finite,
And these storms,
Have raged too long,
Must surrender spring.
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...
consumes you, eliminates you
But soon you won't be here
There'll be nothing left to fight and no one left to win
Which paths have been drawn into your thirsty heart?
Which maps have been burning inside your restless mind?
Which oceans have been drying in your tired soul?
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...
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...
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...
“I want to see you.Know your voice.Recognize you when youfirst come 'round the corner.Sense your scent when I come into a room you've just left.Know the lift of your heel,the glide of your foot.Become familiar with the way you purse your lipsthen let them part, just the...
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
Listening to M-Train's "What if I"
Laying on this mattress and sigh
Feeling invisible arms take me in
Thinking about times that could've been
"What if I want to kiss you tomorrow?"
A moment that has yet to arrive
Memories are thrown at me like knives
and think about the day
I still myself to sleep and meanwhile I pray.
"Dear God, I know you can see us and you're watching from above
Filled with sadness, as we are, and equally in love.
I've once asked You "why?" and questioned if You were near.
But I do have one request...
power to break a heart.
Know her fears, know her secrets,
Then abandon her, it will tear her apart.
Smile when you talk to her,
Add a little fake sincerity,
Be the one when she needs someone,
Don't judge her for her insecurity.
Be her best friend, her source of joy,
While you sit there and wait for your fate to be debated by
Juries and judges
With over 450 years worth of grudges
Brother! Get back! Sit back!
Rediscover how to be an honest father
And not just another silly "n________" .
Is freedom to allow yourself to be who you are?
Is freedom to show your true colours without being ashamed or unsure?
Is freedom to breathe without counting your breaths or the days you have left?
Is freedom to shut the door behind and head for the rainbow?
Is freedom that ray...

too sad to even say hello, I will listen to your silence until you fall asleep. If you need to cry I will not wipe your tears away because you are only human and sometimes tears are as close to laughter as you can get and that's okay. If you get sleepy I will let you drool on my...
Sapno me aake mujh se milna kabhi
Maine duniya sazai hai tere liye,
Meri nazro ki ummed ban’na kabhi
Bahut dur hai sitaro se roshan jahan,
Jra humkadam banke mere sath chalna kabhi
Bahut najuk seene mai DIL hai mera,
Tum andaj mohabbat banke dharkna kabhi…
if his demons matched mine
And I was so scared
Because our broken edges fit into one so perfectly
Realizing we had so much to lose together, but apart
We were the same
It’s like I belong to him
I want to be that place
He goes to when he thinks he has lost a home
I want to...
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 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...
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...
