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,
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...
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...
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...
Here is a cake,
I baked it myself;
I filled it with love,
And left it on a shelf.
It's been sitting there,
For only god knows how long;
Just found it yesterday,
And...Oh dear god that looks wrong.
There's a graveyard of flies,
Coating the top;
My friend accidentally dropped it...
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...
But I want to,
You look so heavenly,
On the tv,
And my head turns everytime you walk past me,
I haven't experienced you yet,
But I want to,
You sound so sweet,
Such a musical treat,
Ears focus in everytime you float a head nodding beat,
I haven't experienced you yet,
After the war was over he took his rife to the armory.
He thought he was finally done with the rife.
But, no matter what else the man did with his hands :
-Love a woman
-Build a house
-Or held his child
His hands still remember and always will remember
the rifle he held...
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...
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...
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...
and we only grow farther
Another poem written for you
Time only makes it harder
Bags in hand, what do I do?
You'll never know about how I listen to "our songs"
Or the way I miss you when I'm awake
You always knew when something was wrong
Darling, the memories you and I would...
just reading other stories that relate to me but I really REALLY needed some feedback on poetry so here goes:

Upon this rock I will build...
seeking the lite of day, searching for hope in a black filled world.
Glimmers of starlight in the deep, but only just glimmers.
Shards of broken glass and shattered hopes and dreams, dicing the soul into millions of pieces. Torn to shreds and thrown asunder, it rests in the...
whos been raising me all my life might not be my biological father. Really broken me in two. Ever since our relationship hasn't been the same. But I don't feel any different towards him. He was, still and always will be my dad.
I've been trying to write a poem about it but the...
It's a mystery
No telling what is
And what tomorrow brings
Its a mystery
Let us understand
Why when where and who
For the sake of knowledge
Is knowing the truth
It's a mystery
Oh yes A mystery
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...
of the soul
teardrops of blood creating waterfalls
sometimes i wonder can one possibly survive
i was nine when i met my first pain
it followed me and shaped me left me bruised in a wide open space
i was cold and alone
solitude as my best friend
but i escaped my deepest...
.......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...
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...
my anxiety builds.
it creeps, stomach churning, sweat beading on my brow, legs like jelly not wanting to carry me forward, it's hard to catch my breath. looking around things seem surreal, my focus and concentration gone. inside my head I'm screaming; please, please don't make...
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...
and the window pane. Desperately trying to enter the paradise outside whilst some invisible force kept her back. Exhausted she lay listlessly, feeling all hope drain away. She watched the sun go down and hoped she would live through the night to fight another day.
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...
I didn't want to be here.
I tried, I tried so hard, I dug in my heals as they pushed me the last few feet,
but what they want they get.
as I look before me there's no where to go but down, behind me they block the road to safety.
what more do you want from me? I cry. I've...
locks, crows in flocks
No passion no play
Living in a box, devoured by hawks
Sought from around the bay
Separated by history and place, distance was not the case
She haven't looked away
Her blue eyes looked through the disgrace
Not the eyes of a bird of prey, but entangled...
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...
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.
though I'm lucky enough to have never suffered it, I know many who have. I wrote this on a whim one day and decided to put it here.
Okay, here goes..
Why do I struggle to get out of bed all the time
Why can't I see beauty in heart warming rhymes
Why can't I smile, or laugh or...
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...
if I'm the right one
when the halls empty
and orange lines stretch into black
the world just for one
love like a straightjacket
and safe from eachother
I want you to miss me
that's why I'll never be there
to find out if you do or don't
growing up and enjoying...
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...
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 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...
Staring into a helpless map
Wondering your exact location
What you are doing
Are you thinking of me
Cuz my mind is constantly on you
Your soft arms wrapped around my waist as you kiss my forehead gently
The beat of your heart touching mine
so beautiful it feels...
A thousand 'likes'. A thousand comments. A thousand tweets of the same breakfast while we marvel at coincidence.
Because I matter.
Following you following me a thousand times for a thousand disciples; the next more important than the last. A favorite book/song/quote/movie...
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
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...
To see the faint rainbow projected into the clouds.
It takes my breath away beautifully.
The peace and the tranquility rise within me,
As does the feeling of loneliness and emptiness,
And then the memories resurface it's only just me.
I look down at my hand and see it is empty...
That I may experience their deaths
Over, and over, until mine eyes awaken
For though i may sleep,
I shall know no rest
For ever, and ever...
Let your vengeance course through me
Thy rage inflict weeping sores upon the soul
That i may live once more,
And in light of day, devour...
