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...
The wild winds coldly blow;
But a tryant spell has bound me,
And I cannot, cannot go.
The giant trees are bending
Their bare boughs weighed with snow;
The storm is fast descending,
And yet I cannot go.
Clouds beyond clouds abouve me,
Wastes beyond wastes below;
I feel i'm fading
and my life, its trading
with the devil its slowly masquerading
evading, every inch of peace i found
and now i cry in a faint sound,
bob around and lay back
under the stars shining, in the black
dark firmament landing me on the track...
who was wonderful and so very funny. We attended his funeral, a few days ago, and this poem was read. It was found in a schoolbook he had kept for over 70 years.

Where am I going? I don't quite know.
Down to the stream where the king-cups...
or when, or from where. I love you simply, without problems or pride: I love you in this way because I do not know any other way of loving but this, in which there is no I or you, so intimate that your hand upon my chest is my hand, so intimate that when I fall asleep your eyes...
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...

any experience,your eyes have their silence:
in your most frail gesture are things which enclose me,
or which i cannot touch because they are too near
your slightest look easily will unclose me

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,

there soft arms from around you,
the birds take...
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...
on my neck you draw
and slide down whit your finger
as salt water drops
through my skin tumble
you reflect at them
while with your hand
immersed in my hair
you hunt му quivering breaths
while longings crawl on me
and between the breasts traces remain
Will not be spoken.
The ways of your love for me
Will not be known.
The taste of your lips on mine
Will remain a mystery.
The warmth of you skin against me
Will only be my imagination.
A few moments ago.
Your final breath
Was used l speak three words to me...

When you’re in bed thinking about all the things

Time is wasted

And decide to not jump...

NOTHING GOLD CAN STAY by Robert Frost
Nature's first green is gold
Her hardest hue to hold.
Her early leaf's a flower;
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...
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...
Somedays I feel like the person
I'm supposed to be,
and then somedays
I turn into no one at all.
There is both
me and my silhouette.
I hope that on the days
you find me and all I am
are darkened lines
you still are willing
to be near me."
- Mary Kate Teske
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...
a paper before me
id write it all down
but the words don't agree
thoughts don't breathe
and the skin's dark no more
the hearts always open
but you don't explore
you never ask anything
you don't do the talking
its not that im tired dear
but i don't feel like walking...
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...
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...
it happens so often I think we're
friends. I try to shake it, turn it around , find a reason not to frown. It starts with a feeling deep insidde. that itch on my mind that I can't unwind, I don't feel sorry for myself, I pray alot and don't deceive myself , I see quite clearly...
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...
You come to us from another world
From beyond the stars and void of space.
Transcendent, Pure, of unimaginable beauty,
Bringing with you the essence of love.
You transform all who are touched by you.
Mundane concerns, troubles, and sorrows
dissolve in your presence, bringing...
that seemed to be enough for
Two teenagers who were scared to
Love one another...
I look at you
And I realize how much I love you
And that terrifies me
It terrifies me what I would do for you...
never be straight
Contain bumps and curves
where many are great
Your personal experiences
have shaped who you are
Embrace your mistakes
And each unique scar
Theres always new things
in life we may learn
with every page
and chapter we turn
There is just one simple
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
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...

He said: Lo, the sky is somber, and frowned.
I said: Smile just the same! Enough frowns in the sky...
I miss you.
I felt your own pain
It was something hard to regain
Life was so unfair
As if no one care
I cherish the good times
The bad times
The searching times
The times of bitterness
The times of sadness
When you seek and tried to find
The dream you left behind
night that covers me,
Black as the Pit from pole to pole
I thank whatever gods may be
For my unconquerable soul
In the fell clutch of circumstance
I have not winced nor cried aloud
Under the bludgeonings of chance
My head is bloody, but unbowed
Beyond this place of wrath and...

ever have walked on the planet! Just my humble opinion...
In youth, it was a way I had
To do my best to please,
And change, with every passing lad,
To suit his theories.
But now I know the things I know,
And do the things I do;
And if you do not like me so,
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...
