I awoke, feeling a body against mine...
Is this a dream I thought... no...
Misty eyed I felt the body push from behind
My eyes burst open... No...
My body tensed and my skin rippled with fear
A hand reached across my chest
I held my breathe and shed a single tear
while she played some spanish tune on her guitar soft
and the light did fade on down to the cold west
leaving us by the glow of lamplight flickerin
she made that song dance for me
made it spin a tale out of thin air
one of walking in a summer sun holding hands

brown orbs were his sisters’.
A sister dead with a hole in her heart
Would not let go of his sight.
She whispered sweet nothings into his soul
Deluding him with dreams of tomorrow.
Stories of freedom,
Stories of life,
Stories of penance were sung.
Cobwebs were weaved through...
I thought this was a dream...
I thought you
then I woke...
in a nightmare?
full of doubt
Giving me this
If you could find the strength to
you love me.
I would be able to
I loved you to.
Far too poisoned for
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...
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...
A thousand 'likes'. A thousand comments. A thousand tweets of the same breakfast while we marvel at coincidence.
Because I matter.

The night gives birth to stars,
Love gives birth to kisses,
And pain gives birth to scars,
Dreams give birth to heaven,
As nightmares give birth to hell,
My heart gives birth to secrets,
That my lips may never tell,
Smiles can tell me lies,
But tears can show what’s true,
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 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,
Deems my capture of her, a...
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.
spanish beads in her hair as it spilled
off her shoulder in the rain
a faded tattoo of a bird flying lay there too
it carried a rose with a broken heart
i covered her with my jacket to keep off the chill
as we moved along the deserted road
and she took comfort in my company...

The green waves are coming,
Buy your seconds now before it's too late,
The clock waits for miracles,
But we seem to have run out,
My pockets are empty, so come with me quickly;
Let's run before our shadows realise,
Let's leave before our mothers care,
night. What is your interpretation of it?
I accept those who come and go...
But only once each time,
For if you leave and close the door, the key that locks is mine.
So those who leave should say goodbye and know this is the end.
Thank you for the time you spent as my...
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

Tooth to the rind
I bite the hand
I kill the...
.......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...
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...
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...
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...
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...
take you to the depths of sorrow
or the passions you unveil
it is meant to see a vision
that you dream of in the dark
hold the world over your feelings
or devour your own heart
crave the touch of passions temptress
or give way to something black
tickle every clearer...
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...
Deep inside my chest
Should I take another?
Your hand reaches for me
But I refuse
There's other things
I must attend to
You wouldn't understand
And it's in me once more
Pulsing in waves of
I wrap my soul
Hold on so tight
that rose glasses moment
it really is all there is
it really is all you'll ever need
she was there too
familiar to the song
and comfortable to the dance
lace and silver jewels
pretty perfumes and mysterious candles flickering
she was no stranger to this little world
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
fade from the candle,
Writers pore over pages of unwritten script,
Unknown by many, torn into shreds.
Fixed by a broken hand and seen by only one.
It's emotional purgatory, running away from the darkness,
but writhing away from the light.
Listening through the crack in the...
gentlest master that falls to his knees
that riles the triggers that long to the taste
make me a promise that wishes erase
grant me a minute before all is lost
build me the bridges so maybe ill cross
take away empty and fill me with light
falling from heaven to land in delight...
To the next
And I'm bouncing
I can't stop
And that's ok
Stopping is the one thing
You just shouldn't do
So you don't
And then you
Go go go
Until you've run yourself
And the clouds above
Begin to cry
But they're the only ones
And that's ok...
Your smile isn't here to stay
I can not find the way to repay
The debts I owe
So watch the show
I'll say it s l o w
But you deny
We surely try
Cause I was born to die
Look up to the faded sky
A dingy sort of blue
It's nothing new
You were always...
hoping for the day
when the gallows man
jingling his keys
against the iron bars
to let me know that the
clock is a'ticking
time is running out

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...
as the wind
takes her hair and makes it dance
the rain has just passed
and the road is still damp
but she walks barefoot on the cool pavement
leaving delicate trail that my heart will retrace
in the chilly hours that shes not in my arms
she leans on my shoulder and softly...
It's called A BLESSING
YOU ARE AN AWESOME ONE,
THE BLESSING STARTED THE DAY OF YOUR BIRTH, YOUR PERSONALITY SHINES LIKE THE SUN,
YOU ARE A BLESSING HERE ON EARTH,
YOU ARE SO FULL OF GRACE,
YOU ARE AN IMPORTANT PART,
THIS WORLD IS A BRIGHTER PLACE,

While I rot alone inside
Can you spare a single
Kind word, just once
I'd like to know
I'm doing right
The night falls
Let the alcohol flow
My disillusioned cloudy lungs
An added bonus I can't refuse
And I used to be under your spell
Now I've fallen away
My mother loved me in a 1979 Dodge Dart
Pickle green, sandy vinyl interior.
I didn't know that she loved me
Until our first ride in that Dodge
Her first car.
She was twenty-six, I was eight.
We were young, together.
I didn't know
Till' half way down the road
thought of me in the eyes of her heart
and constructed me from fragments
of what she had thought she knew
with deliberate care stitched the pieces
of her self deceptions to the fabric of reality's rags
a wedding cake of circumstance and make believe
that was the union of her...
of her broken mind places them in
neat arrangement of prettiest colours
giving such names and thinks of lives
they have never lead
with husbands never met
pretty dresses for each adorned piece
of her mad mad mind
but it delights her no end
to imagine the tender kiss each...
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...
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...
Your light has shone down
Blazing with colour
Filling my heart and soul
Your beauty radiating out for all to see
Your love given whole heartily
Swamping my body with feelings of desire
Giving me comfort when I am lonely
Sharing your soul as I share mine with you
So keep your...
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 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...
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.
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...
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...
