    I love poetry, does anyone like to read

    and write poetry? I'd enjoy to read some. What's your opinion on this one that I wrote? I am, where under the moon on high tide, And the ocean, is yet so still, as I sleep. I dream, of castles of sand, as my slumber deepens, And i wonder, of beauty in hidden places, where the...

    I want to love you without walls around this

    rattling birdcage heart but I can't stop the thought that even though you've said you are strong enough to last the storms, that you enjoy the wild of my sea, one of these days you'll murmur "I love you" And it will be the last time you say those words to me...

    When everything else is going bad in life I

    always turn to poetry or even books. It's nice to get lost in a fantasy world once in a while because then just for a short amount of time, everything seems okay. I mean yeah that feeling won't last, but it's nice to have an escape once in a while.

    The Absolute

    No mind, no form, I only exist;    Now ceased all will and thought; The final end of Nature's dance,    I am it whom I have sought. A realm of Bliss bare, ultimate;    Beyond both knower and known; A rest immense I enjoy at last...

    The Lady She, My Guest

    SHE is a balm for aching breast, Ready-eyed and deadly-dressed, With lust for silent night obsessed. SHE is of hunters known as best, With war-paint worn upon Her chest; Weary SHE, my honored guest. SHE knows I crave what SHE suggests, And make true whatever SHE requests...

    You told me that you loved me But the distance fell apart You told me that you loved me And then you broke my heart You told me that you loved me No matter what I do You told me that you loved me I wish I said; "I do."

    My favorite part of of a poem I fell in love

    with long ago.... Men themselves have wondered What they see in me. They try so much But they can’t touch My inner mystery. When I try to show them, They say they still can’t see. I say, It’s in the arch of my back, The sun of my smile, The ride of my breasts...

    My next artistic creation is through poetry

    and writing, it is the best way to reflect on your past and to reflect the pain in life you may be living, flowing onto the paper like raindrops or tears, a voice and expression of the soul stretched out on paper into the future years..
