.......To see a world in a grain of sand, to hold what falls in your hand. To know the future, but be surprised it takes place as long ago planned. Like an artist takes his tools out to paint. A long lonely walk he takes. Down the path through the holler. Up a hill, pass the...
I could tell you’re a little shy
Maybe a little hurt,
I caught a glimpse of pain in those eyes
But after a short while,
Your eyes again connected with mine,
There was beauty in their defiance,
And a touch of mischief there this time
There was one more smile for me,
no dreams of flight to fill my head.
that nameless terror to fill instead,
for one may not fly with wings of lead.
a crashing fall into stormy seas,
the gods of old for to appease.
broken wings to drag me deep,
to icy hell, deaths own keep.
lungs fill with ice at the first...
to ignore them but they remain
Passion growing each second stronger
Burning hotter than that flame
Wanting to stop caring and let it all go
Fantasizing of surrendering to a carnal need
Strong arms holding and embracing you
Defenses melt away, finally to be freed
My Lord I seek the peace of her love,
It's completeness would me sustain,
I long to drink from her loving sweet cup,
I ask I not search in vain.
Tell me Lord, shall I ever know,
The touch of my love's caress,
Shall I taste of the nectar, so filling ... Complete,
That would flow...
as the blood runs as rain.
a shattered heart dies alone
but with no way to atone.
a pain carried to the grave
of words this heart enslaved
a broken man of no import
whos life has provided great sport.
gods great joke of a man
who finally realized his losing hand
his fate it is...
hide my shame
Night by night
I inhale blow
Pick a fight
And let it go
Week by week
I live in fear
Don't want to speak
Don't want to hear
Month by month
Can't have fun
Without a nose
Year by year
I'll soon be dead
Isn't it clear?
Does it need to be said?
Life by life...
Referring to depressed like a racist slur, even if we all are from the same rotten seed
I wish so badly to be understood.
And hope is the knife in my throat
Life is the falsehood.
All wild fantasies, never to...
but ghosts of dreams are not to be.
this world im in so dull and staid
yet world of dreams in life does blaze.
firey reds and icy blue
gold of sunsets blackened hues.
a screaming pain tears through my mind..
yet comforting still the pain would end
that someday to...
I didn't want you to know that I'd failed
It bothers me that I didn't do better
and you don't want to hear excuses in this matter,
so I'll keep quiet and try again
til my results bring you joy and not pain..
Imagine a thirsty moment
Your parched throat needs relief
Now consider me your water
And splash me against your teeth
Feel my soothing coolness
Dance upon your tongue
As I dribble down your throat
From your palette which I have clung
Now take another drink of me
And swirl me in...
Within my mind
Point of origin returned
Alcohol may be
The relief I find
Soaking my insides
In a salty brine
But you're still blind
Why am I the one
Always left behind
finger to the trigger
Tooth to the rind
I bite the hand
I kill the...
As beside me asleep an angel does lay.
Her delecate features do make my heart race,
For never has one such a sweet face.
So fragile she seems, yet deep inside
A woman of strength of heart and of mind.
I touch her soft skin and love flames so bright.
Her warmth keeps me alive in...
but I'm ok with that
so naturally I don't expect you to,
that's what keeping me back
because I don't understand,
what you could like about me..
I'm a bit awkward and lack personality
so I'm not gonna stress
and stay forever alone
not bothering at all
and chilling in my...
A good and civil way to have a fight instead of getting physical….
I wrote your name on sand it got washed.
I wrote your name in air, it was blown away.
Then I wrote your name on my heart & I got Heart Attack.
God saw me hungry, he created pizza.
The dawn cues the show to start
As my window curtains part.
To look upon the cast a story
Amidst the purple morning glory.
Seen below the morning star
Sits rows and rows of lavendar.
A yellow dot with white clouds hazy
A color script just for the daisy.
A worm that pays the...
I’m really trying to love you
And take you out of your despair
You don’t respond to any comfort
Yours is a heart with no one there
I think you gave up years ago
A little child discarded in the past
Though you gave them your love deeply
They always left, it didn’t last...
Sometimes I wished I'd have toys, other years games.
But I don't really remember when, I wished for a woman in my bed.
Maybe when I was ringing groceries, into a laser eyed counter.
Maybe the first time my car got stuck in a snowy patch in winter.
But I remember the boughs of...
Walk with me on
The midnight grass
Shadows hide truth
Of our trespass.
The cloudy covered
Moon rides high
Within our arms
We hold the lie.
On the wind
The only sounding
Of our hearts
On my lips
The scarlet beckoning
Come taste the hell
Unleash our reckoning.
I met myself on the street today,
I was looking rather pale.
My eyes were red, my hair unwashed,
I didn't look too well.
I tried to find the courage,
To ask me what was wrong.
I've known myself for quite some time now,
We used to get along.
He looked at me with anger,
That I dare confuse,
You've left me shaken,
Further chained, broken.
My love for you,
Made of a secret brew,
I never really asked who,
Broke you, did I?
When breath stop,
When palms drop,
The tears that stream,
Tearing me from the seams.
I remember the day,
Lost within the steeple
Of cultures undermined
Look within the world
And you will surely see
The faces of our lord
In the face of you and me
Each and every person
Lives their life to die
like Mary and her son
We live life in a lie
Fortress of betrayal
Locked in you and I
the man of no depth counts the time.
the seconds pass in eternal screams,
a life's misty memory of no import it seems.
silken chains and cushions of steel,
bitter memories are the final meal.
life is loss, and death an old friend,
a healing touch to bring pain to an end.
I guess I got scared off by my junior high English lessons...iambic pentameter, etc. More rules than I can handle well. Free verse is so open it too seems scary. I enjoy reading poetry. I readily identify with the imagery
it evokes. Sometimes it even becomes a mental fireworks...
and now you can't look or talk to me
I held a grudge, it's been 6 months now
and still you can't approach me
give me an apology and I guess I can get over it
I miss you and you miss me, so common let's be done with this ****..
a part of me will always be, irrevocably
I love the beauty of the sea
Within its depth a part of me
No better where I'd rather be
The only place that I feel free.
To breathe within its briny air
To feel its breath blow back my hair
At the blue horizon stare
That is where you'll find me there.
I hide within its shallow...
sad, maybe pissed
But this won't take the pain away
Make it through tonight for a brighter day
Please find a new way to cope
And don't you dare think about that rope
You're beautiful with a lot of life left
And don't let the blade be the theft
You know, there's people like...
Waiting for a glimpse or sign
Wondering if I've lost my mind.
Wandering fields of golden grass
Worrying heat that would not pass.
While the seasons slowly turning
Watching peats eternal burning.
Wishing frost to hit the moors
With waves of waters icy shores.
Westerly the skies...
I wrote this some time ago about someone from very long ago. I was going through my old poems and when I came to this one, I kept reading it over and over again. The person I wrote this about doesn't have any place in my life now and I rarely think of her so, the moment has...
that will never again be
Feeling empty and alone
But this pain inside you'll never see
I can't cry anymore,
Not that it means anything to you
People live their own lives
Friends become ones you knew
If I die today,
Will I live a better life tomorrow?
Hope jesus, Or anyone...
bedsheets that float down the hallway
or the visions of your loved long passed
but also the ghosts of emotions
when your hearts hurt walking past an old hangout
when you look at a scar and the whole scene plays back in front of you
like reliving it
when you see your best friend...
No mountain is too steep,
to bring you out of the heap.
Just lay your cares on the ground,
and soon after you will be found.
Inside your head used to be a war,
the tears of the past is no more.
Now you can rejoice about life,
and put down that sharp knife.
Love the person you are...
poetry, and any advice would be good.
You left me on a Winters night
As many often do
Hand in mine, you passed from life
As I was watching you
I sat with you for hours
Until they said I had to go
What was I supposed to do
Well that I didn’t know
I had to tell...
Never knowing you was never coming,
Hurt & left alone staring at my phone
From a scammer on here it set your account up unfair,
I came to you to ask you
All it did was make me break you
It left you far from me
We were going to be,
Now it's me again instead of we...
We've met and made a connection,
Without ever seeing one anothers face.
The blooming bud of a brand new friendship,
Culminated in what is termed cyber space.
We are starting a brand new journey,
Walking together on a pristine path.
Learning brand new things with each and every...
How every night my fear feels brand new?
I can't be all alone
I just need a distraction
I'm up all night on my phone
So that I don't take action
I don't want to keep living
I just want to die
I'm so ******* empty inside
Now I can't even cry
I go right up stairs
I always try to...
For Faerylight, may she always shine on my heart
All this time, In the dark I lived
Lost inside looking out
Please listen to these words
My heart screams and shouts
Threadbare as the carpet I walk on
My love has gone astray
Then I felt your presence upon me
And all the...
Kore shall be her maiden name,
once she's grown, it won't be the same.
She will be taken,
she will be claimed,
by the one, who over darkness reigns.
Death will find her, death will gain,
her body, her heart, all the same.
You can try to hide her, you can try to run,
I love you more with everyday
A thousand reasons; a thousand ways
A thousand words that I could say
From a thousand miles away.
I love you here; I love you now
I need to love you near somehow.
To close this gap between you and me
This thousand mile eternity.
I love your heart; I...
Every Day Angels
There are every day Angels
who walk into your life.
They appear at the moment
when your world is full of strife.
Some are hard to see , as they make
their way, straight into your heart.
Others stand out like Blazing stars
as they give...
I'm surrounded by people having a good time
And I try to have a good time
At least look the part
But I'm Charlie Brown
And everyone’s speaking
And I don't understand or care
What they're saying
Because I'm in my mind somewhere
Under the sky
this is cover song,still beautiful in a differently way.
i am also abuse survivor and this makes me cry and encouraged me always.
i ask you a favor,plz read lyrics first,then listen to music.
so i will leave links in the last.
Gazing at the sky after...
And as the day broke through
There was nothing you could do.
For of the rain now falling down
A greater value would hit the ground.
From that first dull morning ray
Started with a shard of grey.
Never thought it could evoke
Such an iron fire smoke.
But within that weapon cast...
I wrote this one recently. It is the first poem I have finished in a few months.
He Reminded Me of Me Written by, err... Me. :)
I saw a boy of five today
Who reminded me of me
And though time passes in a blink
The boy did not yet see
And his mind was filled with wonder.
grow the flower just to crush it under its unsure hand
Seen it flourish in the darkest of places just to grow corrupt in the same night that illuminated it
Watched it change with those around it, just to fall back to old patterns
Many see love as a cold, calculating force...
Burying words in parchment graves,
ink blotted mess dripping from the typewriter,
whisky, wine, tears, vomit, and sweat.
living breathing embodiment of self-deprecation.
although living is hardly the word for it,
and to be honest it’s more like suffocating.
Stuck at a wayside...
and my brother
We're forced to grow
Looking at mother
Through half shut eyes
I Listened to father
Shout his lies
My brother was deaf
He gouged his eyes
But he never cries
He got mad
Took it out on me
I saw my dad
In that rabid plea
My sibling so hurt
but life brings disgrace, the perils and laughs, yet we try on and race. the same passion and heart we share, never give up hope no matter who cares. even alone in a desolate place I will never give up nothing can stop me I will win this race
Warmth of ice and so fully stark.
A king or commoner, so famously bland
The misery of nothing, contrary command.
A soul of the mists, of discordant song.
Never to love, nor truly belong.
A comic book novel, a diamond of paste.
Feigned importance of ego a life lost in haste...
I LOVE LOVE
I love, love and it would seem
That not a moment could possibly pass
Without finding me in a wakeful dream,
Of salacious thoughts deep and vast.
I love, love and sense its lure,
Each time she stirs my lust
For the object of my wanting, sweet and pure...
and drugs involving life. alcohol helps me sleep and weed calms my anger. I know that girls drive me crazy. I want to feel love. but all I can get is lust and my wishes become just sex. I can't explain how I feel imprisoned I want to be free, stress has me wanting to just...
The wind around is hissing
And singing a dark song
The anthem of the land
Surrounding you and I
The people think they're grand
But we know that's a lie
The song is everlasting
a faint but piercing tune
It seeks an understanding
Beetween the many and few
really want to know
I want to know you’re feelings
Open your heart and let them show
I want to know your let downs
I want to know your dreams
I want to know what makes you laugh
And what makes you come apart at the seams
Tell me who you wanted to be,
When you were just a...
