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...
.......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...
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...
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.
games of the mind, to help pass the time.
when asked how you are, merely say "fine...
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
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...
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.
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...
halls of time washed by tides.
the hand of healing weilds the blade,
with deft incisions, memories fade.
screaming silence fills the ears,
as the child drowns in tears.
growing pains, and rods of steel,
bend his will, from realms surreal.
a crowded nothing, an empty mind...
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...
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
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...
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...
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 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,
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...
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...
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...
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.
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
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...
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’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...
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 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.
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...
angry reminder they do shine.
marking minutes and hours of night,
while i lie with muscles tight.
tension running through my frame,
while echoing mind calls your name.
arms so empty to hold no more,
tear filled eyes and heart so sore.
the need to hold you my dear Beth,
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...
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...
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...
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...
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...
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...
this is just a first draft. please comment opinions and help to make it better or just any recommendations, thankyou!
its 3:00 am
her drowning eyes a tomb to your smile
she remembers the night you told her you would never leave her side
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...
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...
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...
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...
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
