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...
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...
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...
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...
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 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.
gathers round my feet as day evaporates
without sound it echoes in my minds eye
a thousand years breathed in a single moment
the weight of worlds falling within
the graceful collapse of a single feather touching
like tender kiss tumbling lost
to the same battered...
to eye. He promises me he wants to spark this new flame with me. You tell me "what we have here you want it to last forever."
"Baby let's start this new thing." You whispered. His lips touches mines with the taste of seduction. He directions me to bedroom, and lays me down...
are herded slowly down the sheep trail
by studious pencil thin men with stylish mustache's
who have deep pocket pickers for friends
they gather round the weak willed and the willing alike
looking for cheap thrills and spare change
everybody needs a new road
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,
her tupperware mind seals in the flavor of her intents
nail polish chipped
no ring to show the lay of the land
bright eyed with hints of joys
lipstick on her neck
this casual girl
in one brief moment our worlds collide
parking lot of seven eleven
she is a...
are enemy's , everyday somebody has something negative to say whenever i arrive , like all I have to do to **** a person off is stay alive . I'm in a strange land and not by choice they'll laugh if your quiet but when you use your voice , they'll crucify you it's a foreign land...
When you think that I gave up, I reappear.
I am a warrior
When you crash my dreams I grow stronger
When you rip my heart I will rise with anger.
When you laugh and think you broke me then I hold my head even higher.
The only one WHO can breake me is ME
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...
the dead leaves speaking aloud his poem of the heart
his world was indian summer that day
she had smiled
winter was her walking
so he walked with her
she smiled again

adjust your head to thinking them
so he tried on...
dissonance of memories
Though surely there must be a sweeter lullaby than this
The angels on my shoulder blades become familiar enemies
Their counterparts escort me to a personal abyss
With shovels in their eager hands imploring to go deeper
Perhaps I’d gain by crafting...
Controlled with wires and strings.
Opens its mouth when others tell it to sing.
A chiseled smile and painted eyes;
Built out of other's wicked lies.
Memories of yesterday
Compartmentalized and locked away.
The Little Girl is trapped inside
Yearning for freedom yet wanting to...
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...
left behind his melodious words in song
left behind his roadside fast eyes neatly packaged
still can purchase his dream down at the five and dime
still can find a tight leather pants version
of his photograph looking lizard like
in clean bollywood style
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'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
night that covers me,
Black as the pit from pole to pole,
I thank whatever gods may be
For my unconquerable soul.
In the fell clutch of circumstance
I have not winced nor cried aloud.
Under the bludgeonings of chance
My head is bloody, but unbowed...
and the trill of city
noises fade in the dusky light of your
temple. Wrist in hand, led with heavy
purpose through the tile chambers, my
feet echo patters like that of a child.
This dance has changed, now fast and
ordered, the feminine flutters have been...
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...
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...

the lighted room
eyes glue to shoes
the miles a man treads
are the measure of his soul
and these worn feet are
men to move mountains
with bare hands
tinge the conversation
with the propaganda of innocence
priesthood of crafted reality
puts good and true men prostrate to the...
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...
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...
since she considered my last poem a rap instead ._.
A bunch of deception
but I must applaud
you are the definition
of a true fraud.
All of them promises
broken and shattered
you were basically anonymous
just like the Mad Hatter.
It's so easy to despise
someone like you
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...
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...
.......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...
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
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...
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...
In My reflection i see
Its me im missing inside this body.
But There it is in My eyes
I try to smile back and i whisper that this time i Will be your friend in the way mirrors befriend.
We Will learn how to love
If your willing i can teach you how...
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...
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.
Needing to speak the words that lack.
Wanting to be free like the birds
Flying away and never looking back.
Flying back in time before the tears
Happy and without a care.
Seeing she is now a hollow shell of fears
Breaks her heart beyond repair.
keep you from seeing
All of my inner demons
You hear that too? That's my soul screaming
All it wants is mercy
From this horror anniversary
I'm fine, just tired,
Maybe I am a liar
Maybe when I die
I'll burn in the fire
But until I'm thrown in hell,
I'll just lay here and dwell...
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...
