Strands woven on gold, bronze and earth. A few swatches of winter snow, as well as those that dare bare their naked crowns to the sky.
How many cities, how many peoples scattered like diamonds on green and blue across the wide earth, and washed down the river of...

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.
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...
When I feel a little spark,
I feed that flame until it's a forest fire
Because I rather feel angry than numb.
When I feel my heart crack
And my eyes start to water,
I let my heart shatter
And let my eyes turn into waterfalls
Because I'd rather feel hurt than numb.
There is no...
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.
If you guys like it, I'll write a part two. Please leave feedback :)
This evil, we're unable to overcome
You think we're alright? Quit playing dumb
We as a generation are lost and depressed
With bad parenting and a whole lot of stress
Bullying is getting worse and...
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 delivered my heart, but
It wasn't enough so
I walked away.
Fight my own demons
Inside my head screaming
And only repeating
That it was my fault
You never really took enough
Pieces from my soul
You took it all but
It wasn't enough so
I walked away
I've been staying up...
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
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...
married in the darknessgot married in the flamessee the tides and the seasonsor the phases of the moonthere's a melody in the tuneit's in the picture on your wallthe candle in your roomthe moment's gone too soonall is love.
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...
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.
my head.. not knowing weather to pull the trigger and just end up dead. a little depressed with the world right now a little lost in my mind right now a lot of stuff going on eig by now I think I should pull the trigger right now. Throw the clock out the window I'll let you know...
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?
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...
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...
that I can't see? How do I believe in someone I can't hear? How can I believe in someone I can't feel? How do you believe in someone I can't touch? Why do they say you're true love? How do they know you're not true lust? Did you hear the knocks I left at your door? I'm here...
To be honest, I don't know how much longer I'll survive
When every night I'm praying :
"Please God Let Me Die"
Wakes up and distracts his mind
With video games and music : "I'll be fine"
The second he isn't distracted it hits like a hurricane
And for the rest of the day, he...
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...
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...
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...
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...
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...
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...
who wish to talk. I'm always up for a good conversation but don't use me as a second in your game of solicitation. I don't mind letting you know how my brain works but do not change the rules of the game when the ball isn't in your court. Talking has always been a good thing in...
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
where I left off
Talking about a generation that scolds for "being soft"
Racism and homophobia still going on
So these kids try to act like someone they're not from dusk to dawn
Full of anger and desperation
Falling into peer pressure without hesitation
Leading them to alcohol...
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 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...
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.
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...
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...
