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...
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...
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 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...
and frozen in fear, time stops.
Pretending to be asleep; staying very still...
Lying and waiting, pretending it's all just a dream.
NO! Get up! I have to do something! SCREAM!
*Silence*... I don't make a sound. No one can know. Ashamed!
Eyes now scrunched up tight and fists...
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...
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...
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
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
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
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...
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...
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...
music -- just humming,
well- breakfasted stomach of tarmac
rolling onward through the fresh
sober breath of a Sunday,
no chasing, no waiting --
or through the night
where the streetlights chime
like pitchforks, like a slow motion
pinball run ping ping ping
as long as I...
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 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...
.......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...
You've broken me in many ways.
Will I ever get any peace?
Have you got nothing at all to say?
Did you think you were doing right by me?
Did I even matter to you at all?
I was just your scapegoat to sanity,
It didn't matter if it caused me to fall.
You took my heart...
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 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
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 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...
Floating along this river Styx,
Its icy waters silence my tongue,
Its fiery embers burn my lungs,
Light is fading, darkness abound,
In its depths I’ll surly drown,
Conflicting thoughts of a maddened youth,
Where lies are sweet and bitter the truth,
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...
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
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...
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...
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...
such value, before I wasted it all that day ,
Now an empty shell named Scott, lives life in shades of gray ,
I act like life is ok, my smile says everything’s fine, ,
But beyond it lies the carnage, buried deep inside my mind ,
A constant battle wages, as the enemy try’s...
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 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...
how i got started. I have a friend who lives in California. we went to school together 55 years ago.I happened to connect with her on one of those social networks sites. She is an accomplished writer and We became close friends(again).

this for my girlfriend. I hope others here might appreciate it.
If I were to have but one wish in my life
it would be for you to love me and be my wife
As years go by and our love does grow
it is my wish to let you know
that all the stars up in the sky
will never leave a...
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...
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
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.
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.
The death of a loved one had taken it's toll
The day you died I paid a fee, because part of you died in me
The lust green forest my heart contained, now smoldering ashes... Nothing remained
I could do nothing but watch in shock, as my whole world rocked
Months have gone...
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.
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...
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 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...
the autumn sunlight
and within our conversation she smiles radiantly
gives glimpse of hearts truth
natural beauty rendered of the soul
is a masterpiece that no artist of word or image
in subtle colors fine lines can duplicate
her burnished hair spread by morning breeze
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
chew on the edges of thoughts you don't want to think
adjust your head to thinking them
so he tried on...
