music and just sit
Usually on my back porch step, after dark when everyone else has already gone to bed
Just me, the night sky, and some really pretty stars
I would slip out that bottle of Jager I've had since God knows when
And the pot my cousin gave me
Mixing the alcohol...
I cannot quite explain this excruciating, earthly pain. I can't take this life no more. From the start, I've lost the war. Lovely Grim, please liberate me from this life of agony"
This is a repost of a poem I wrote a while ago. I got some positive feedback on it, so maybe it'll...
a small hospital near Tampa Florida, it was believed that he had nothing left of any value. Later when the nurses were going through his meager possessions, they found this poem. Its quality and content so impressed the staff that copies were made and given to every nurse in the...
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...
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...
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...
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...
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.
very fine housein which these lighted objects moveDid they want to venture out?From the front gate to the storeto the workplace and backto an interesting thing where people madesome noiseLook at the moon rising above the oceanLook at your handsanimated particles of dust.
and alone at the end of your dime
someplace on the road between the here and the now
out of smokes and outa luck
barefaced to the carnival of night
the day passes slowly into the vastness of the past
hungry eyes puddled with traces of regret
for all the places you've been and...
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...
my eyes closed to
The people around me are blind aren't you supposed to , run from the darkness but they stare me in the face .
Mistaking good deeds for me being a good guy only proves their ignorance to the oxymoron standing before them.
something pushing me to my edge
Live a river craving to merge with ocean
Running incessantly looking for destination
But what is beyond destination
Beyond all the realms lies love a never solving mystery
poets will come and go but mystery will continue
and recreating it as a piece of art being recycled by time and use, life chooses its own way moved by passions and adrenaline
How wise and essential mind is in this journey?
Are choices meant to be born in heart or mind?
what if heart chooses and mind is in disagreement?
but I stepped on a frog that came hopping out of nowhere,
I felt it's bones crunch, made me throw up my lunch, some chunks even got into my hair
So I turned and went home, and I sat all alone and I realized something with a wince,
For as my shoe came down, I swore I heard 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...
as black as the night , with an eye that's just daring you to fight and get blown to the next year .
Everything that's loud quiets down whenever they're here
Family disputes I'm always caught up in one everyday , I so many different cops I can tell the difference in one who...
this inner voice fear
provoking these tears
Neglecting her space
of laughter and grace
shadowing her face from liberty.
What is it out there, so tempting to wear?
What is it in here... that she expects to tear?
The Sun is still shining, no matter whats coming
The sky is...
I need to know where to go time is moving to fast don't know how many tics I have to go. I need to know where to stay I need to am I alive today? I need to what to do for I am lost and alone and if you called I'd answer the phone they feel you in their heart and they hear your...
while you worry if you're worth it
Throwing curses to the person that helped bring you to this earth
You keep it bottled up til someone judges or attacks then all your rage hits the surface
Once the calm is here and the storm is gone, you're back wondering your purpose
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.
steady on my roof
its pattern on the slate walkway is a confusion of circles
birds continue to sing
cars continue to speed by
it is only i that has ground to a halt by this
rainy season isnt supposed to be here yet
so why have you clogged my day
with your wet...
So strong that made me knowing you so rad. but everything that I lived changed me to be bad. you left and I walked into the darkness. I felt alone and in distress. I had become an animal, a beast that lived like a criminal. I spend countless years in a cage. inside my...
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...
I'm a soldier because my life is a war
It'll leave you ****** up but you can take a tour
Emotions frozen so I'll never hurt like before
I'll never know why Ive been someone to adore
Being emotionless isn't cool, it's bad
I don't even know how to take the few...
this invisible wall between us, pretending that any hole we make will connect us as one....
an illusion it is, as our ways have shifted and our perception has morphed ....
fading slowly the idealized laze flowing smoothly down the waterfall of broken dreams and platonic heroes...
I can't tell but I do know this. when I first laid eyes know you I knew I could be who I really am. for the brief moment of my life I had found the peace I long searched for. you had me lost in your beauty. your beautiful blond hair that makes me believe that it was...
My brown luscious color is all I see
Society yelling at me "No that's not how it should be! Where's your fair skin? Where's your locks or hair"
My mind is telling me no one wants you that's how it'll always be
Your going to be alone that is what it seems
so hard to explain
down here in the rain pretending He is vain
Where should He go what should he do...no matter what happens he still thinks of you.
Somewhere in the dessert where plants tend to die, he handles a flower, pretending to fly.
Faraway lands expecting arrivals of...
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,
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 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
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...
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...
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...
