The dawn cues the show to start
As my window curtains part.
To look upon the cast a story
Amidst the purple morning glory.

Sits rows and rows of lavendar.

He is intense and masculine yet sensitive with me,

let us not forget eternal love...
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...
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...
your life for a reason, a season or a lifetime.
When you figure out which one it is,
you will know what to do for each person.
When someone is in your life for a REASON,
it is usually to meet a need you have expressed.
They have come to assist you through a difficulty;
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'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
halls of time washed by tides.
the hand of healing weilds the blade,
with deft incisions, memories fade.
screaming silence fills the ears,
as the child drowns in tears.
growing pains, and rods of steel,

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...
I'm everything you never had, oh I'm the good within the bad
I'm the mistakes you can never compromise
I'm the unfairness you'll never comprehend
I'm somewhere between your future and your past, I'm your own worst enemy
I'm your mind's worst Felony
I'm the one who'll...
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...

marking minutes and hours of night,
while i lie with muscles tight.
tension running through my frame,
while echoing mind calls your name.
arms so empty to hold no more,
tear filled eyes and heart so sore.
the need to hold you my dear Beth,
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...
From where do they come?
It's like a million little things, have piled into one.
They build up together, in the dark parts of my mind.
And gather their fury, in the parts I am blind.
How long has it been? Have I not taken care?
My ego tells me lies, it keeps me unaware.

a promise of pleasure
the stain of human gesture brought and sold
bleak for its beauties of the eye to behold
strained against the leash which holds it to the street
it too has dreams
wishes held close to the heart
spoken aloud only in whispers of the night
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.
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...
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 think of all the wars I had to fight
And pull from that negativity to make art
Poetic justice straight from my heart
Where should I start?
As my mind and my heart start drifting apart
I've become cold but more wise
But still considered silly for praying to the sky
there by the wooden door
burned into its crispy surface is a poem aimed at her heart
a poem in the form of a image
a graceful piece illustrated to the minds eye
a flowing of words and thought that only
a great painter could put to canvas
it was of a love she knew many years ago...
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...
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.
through parched earth seep.
Bones of the past all neatly arrayed,
My futile scratchings all displayed.
Rended flesh once pink, now green,
All about this ghastly scene.
Nerves still arc in pains grim charge,
Life of agony in words writ large.
Lungs still gasp with labored breath...
even though, we were done.
Just because you still have feelings?
Remember, I said mine were gone..
I understand your actions
you did it because you were hurt.
I'm sorry it wasn't my intention..
but I won't let you put me on alert.
Where we go from here, can only be told by time...
I’m really trying to love you
And take you out of your despair
You don’t respond to any comfort
Yours is a heart with no one there
I think you gave up years ago
A little child discarded in the past
Though you gave them your love deeply
They always left, it didn’t last...
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...
sad, maybe pissed
But this won't take the pain away
Make it through tonight for a brighter day
Please find a new way to cope
And don't you dare think about that rope
You're beautiful with a lot of life left
And don't let the blade be the theft
You know, there's people like...
Astride his dark mount in the winters icy rain.
Armor all dented, rust eaten sword and much battered shield,
Surrounded by death on some foreign field.
A Paladin once, as bright as the sun,
Under stainless white banner; strong, hale, and young.
Mighty was he...
and I the ethereal moon
whose gentle rays and sharpened rays flickered in gloom.
Your frightening flicks didn't scare me away,
for it took more than just a glare anyways.
Close yet far--- our bond would never scarred
even if this distance is just a mirage.
And on that very...
Caressing my timid soul
The sweet scent of your breath
Sparks a fiery passion in my veins
While Mother Moon shines upon us
We consimate our love
A passionate love none could know
For you are my raven
And I am your doe
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...
For while I know I shouldn't cave
I can't help wanting more
The monsters inside have made it clear
Tonight is my last night
And though people keep telling me no
The monsters are always right
For while they smile and say it's okay
I suffer in silence and sigh
.......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...
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...
