a rain shower fades away in memory
and the air is thick in aftermath
drenched with memory
as we lay benith the overhang
her lace dress crisp against my cheek
i turn to say something but am
caught up by her distant looking silent revere
the notion of her hand moving along my arm...
just reading other stories that relate to me but I really REALLY needed some feedback on poetry so here goes:
**Ramblings of a Muslim Catholic**
---God came to the prophet Mohammed,
His poetry my apostolic creed,
The Qur'an my tabernacle of life,
Upon this rock I will build...
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...

Because I matter.

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...

you are just a memory and I'm forgetting you, Im standing here on this edge trying to jump, but I can't and probably won't, I'm just sad that I will forget about my love for you, life has separated us and now I must pretend to just be happy, *whispers* with out you

from a day full of weep
You drift away into your own mind
Just to see stuff you never thought you could find
It's not all peaceful and happiness though
As evil thoughts and nightmares can begin to grow
Haunting, unbreakable fear
Caused by these nightmares you can't steer...
Feels like time has slowed down
And I've been left behind
Time knows nothing of heartache it simply moves on without a glance back
As I glance back I'm reminded of what was and teased by what could have been
I hear it around me
The sounds of loneliness
The patters of...
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...
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...
I sprinkled him with dust
And up he flew
To his heart's content
He flew past mermaids
Past pirate ships
And treasure coves
A lost boy
Looking for a home
But not quite staying
I glittered him with gold
Shimmered him with amber
Hoping and praying
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...
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...
.......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...
if people were colors / you would be lilac. once blooming for a short period of time / something i've waited all year to witness. like the tides swirling / as a messy canvass creates art. where the sea meets the setting sun / across the way the beginning of the water, the end of...
the world and still feel like no one cares about you
Do you know how to feel to feel so vulnerable in a situation you have no control over
You feel so lost like life is trapped inside of your body
Like no one hears the thoughts coming from your voice
Everyday feels like...
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...
writing about you
You aren't worth a single page in the book that is my life
Nor an excerpt, yet I keep writing
Writing about the trail of destruction that was left in your wake
Leading men on and leaving them behind
Sundays you lift your hands to God in praise
The rest of...
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...
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
I have been treated like trash and used like a toy, do I have feelings? are my dreams to much they surpass the ceilings? I guess I can't change my self for the better, I only have to finish this letter, please forgive me I'm a mess, I am a bad person I am worthless, I...
wear purpleWith a red hat which doesn't go, and doesn't suit me.And I shall sit down on the pavement when I'm tiredAnd gobble up samples in shops and press alarm bellsAnd run my stick along the public railingsAnd make up for the sobriety of my youth.I shall go out in my slippers...
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.
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,
Gotta promise you'll keep it..
I fear something I'm good at
Poetry. Can you believe that?
I've grown up in a society to where poetry is feminine
Unless it's coming from someone famous like Eminem
Im at war with myself because of that fear
Feeling like less of a man if my poetry...
it's how this song starts but it makes me think who is she and will she love me back? I'm a fool because I would love everyone, or even anyone, love is my torment, Im not good enough for anyone, maybe that's why all the girls I gave my heart to choose to throw it away, I...
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...
a sight that can make a super nova seem no more than turning a light bulb on with your hand. Worlds formed by words, intertwined like forestry, rooted deeply in my soul. Details divide then unfold amongst themselves like trees, punctuation marks grow at the ends of fully...
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...
I want to smile as you notice me noticing you in front of me. I hold the capability for great civility Including a stability that'll be exposed if you chill with me. A collaboration for creation combined With you as my tutor to help me better study your...
at the altar
My veil of white being lifted
Lifted by the patient hands that waited for me
Violins playing “Ave Maria” as wedding bells ring
Smiling as Father Greg and the choir sing
Someone who makes my whole world spin as we say our vows
Eyes promising loyalty here and...
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...
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...
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...
In times of trouble
when all the lights go out
and the suns replaced by night
when everything has all gone wrong
when once it was so right
when the smiles of happiness disappear
in place you shed some tears
when you were once strong, bold as brass,
you now are faced with...
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.
This girl wants to die, I remember when I used to live by a knife, but I told her I really try, she is now gone she won't be a mom or a wife, she told me she was happy but it was a lie, she only wanted to die, I can't help but to think she is alive, if she is really gone...
You demand for more
Throwing fits as you beat your breast
Spineless swine hiding behind a lady's skirt
The slap of your insults echoes in the halls
She slaps back to shut you up
You only yell over her, punching her down with words
She gave you clothes and a job with money...
He is trying to escape his cell, The owners are not happy, He is beat and punished, He is rewarded with a treat for good behavior, He is threatened and beat for "bad behavior", "you are a retarded" they say to him, "I love you" they say but they treat him like hate him, at...
