    I Love, Love

    I LOVE LOVE by thatguy1970 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...

    Close your eyes tell me what you see Are you

    exactly where you want to be ? Wish you could stay like this forever But the feelings temporary 5 Minuit safe haven free from stress and worry But that's hard to achieve When your hearts on your sleeve

    Threadbare

    He Reminded Me Of Me

    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. He...

    It's not the failure

    that makes me cry. It's the people that gets affected by my failure. I want to return time to undo it but unfortunately I can't. All this long crying alone, still trying to hold up my tears. Sorry dad for being a failure.

    I Met Myself On The Street Today

    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, I've never...

    The Damaged Tree

    .......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...

    Lonely Tree

    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...

    On a rollercoaster she walks Way down,
