and I the ethereal moon
whose gentle rays and sharpened rays flickered in gloom.
Your frightening flicks didn't scare me away,
for it took more than just a glare anyways.
Close yet far--- our bond would never scarred
even if this distance is just a mirage.
And on that very...
a promise of pleasure
the stain of human gesture brought and sold
bleak for its beauties of the eye to behold
strained against the leash which holds it to the street
it too has dreams
wishes held close to the heart
spoken aloud only in whispers of the night
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...
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...
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
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...
herself to display the power of her beauty
and practiced in the art of visual seductions
she desires to be intoxicating
to move men to noble heights without saying a word
to seduce the hearts of men with just a smile
to be center stage in the brilliant light of adulation
hand to the tiller
to find that brief moment
on the crest of a twenty foot breaking wave
as a nor'easter wilds the sea
when you glimpse it
in the stillness between heaven and earth
she hid in her bedroom
looking at a late fall paris passing rainstorm
and on the run down east...
But pulling it out after stabbing me twice
Just leaving me there, bleeding out my life
Thing about pain is, it makes you feel alive
Even at your worst, it's what thrills you the most
Your body becomes a host to a mental parasite
Addicted to the pain, when love is always...
and think of all the wars I had to fight
And pull from that negativity to make art
Poetic justice straight from my heart
Where should I start?
As my mind and my heart start drifting apart
I've become cold but more wise
But still considered silly for praying to the sky
paths of life to come in to focus
sharper each decision.
roads not traveled fade from sight
as we forward race to final night.
dreams of places, people, and things
secret whispers, to choirs screams
rail against fate and struggle in vain.
none shall escape lifes burdensome...
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...
To answer a few questions
Maybe give a few suggestions
What is it about my crush
That gives me such a rush
And even makes me blush?
What does it mean to love
Fly higher than a dove
And makes me think he's sent from above?
My crush is one handsome son of a gun
For while I know I shouldn't cave
I can't help wanting more
The monsters inside have made it clear
Tonight is my last night
And though people keep telling me no
The monsters are always right
For while they smile and say it's okay
I suffer in silence and sigh
I'm everything you never had, oh I'm the good within the bad
I'm the mistakes you can never compromise
I'm the unfairness you'll never comprehend
I'm somewhere between your future and your past, I'm your own worst enemy
I'm your mind's worst Felony
I'm the one who'll...
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...
even though, we were done.
Just because you still have feelings?
Remember, I said mine were gone..
I understand your actions
you did it because you were hurt.
I'm sorry it wasn't my intention..
but I won't let you put me on alert.
Where we go from here, can only be told by time...
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...
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,
refusing to speak to me
we sit in the bedroom
the tv goes unheard in the corner
softly whispering nonsense to itself
like a madman
she is sitting with her perfumes and paints
looking distantly into the mirror
i study her face from across the room...
trapped by happenstance
In bleak and bitter cold.
Each one possessed a stick of wood
Or so the story?s told.
Their dying fire in need of logs
The first man held his back
For of the faces round the fire
He noticed one was black.
The next man looking ?cross the way
Saw one not...
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...
.......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...
person I think about.In the morning after I eat and go out.When I jump in the shower to wash my body and head.And the last, after prayer, when I go to bed.You're long, silky, curly, brown hair.So light, so soft.....so fair.Glistening with every single move you make.Making me...
From where do they come?
It's like a million little things, have piled into one.
They build up together, in the dark parts of my mind.
And gather their fury, in the parts I am blind.
How long has it been? Have I not taken care?
My ego tells me lies, it keeps me unaware.
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...
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 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...
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...
for lions heart since days of old .
silver pure and diamond bright,
crowns sweet beauty in soft moonlight.
copper bands and jade adorn,
the healing heart of love so warm.
platinum shine and opal fire
a scholars hunger of minds inquire.
crowns of quartz, of brass and...
plays transparently hopeful echoes of some quick romance
while she lounges on the couch in a see-thru dress
smoking expensive french cigarettes
her dreadlocks spread round in the morning sunlight
but her sunglasses out of context in the small room
she is the definitive...
Caressing my timid soul
The sweet scent of your breath
Sparks a fiery passion in my veins
While Mother Moon shines upon us
We consimate our love
A passionate love none could know
For you are my raven
And I am your doe
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...
never to change, keep things the same!
believe the world is unfair!
when truth, it doesn't care.
open your mind to the truth of all life,
the meaningless toil, long suffering strife.

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.
through parched earth seep.
Bones of the past all neatly arrayed,
My futile scratchings all displayed.
Rended flesh once pink, now green,
All about this ghastly scene.
Nerves still arc in pains grim charge,
Life of agony in words writ large.
Lungs still gasp with labored breath...
