that you'll just go away
We sometimes even pray
Not for happiness, but for today to be our last day
Praying for death
Hoping while we sleep, we take our last breath
We wake from our sleep into the real nightmare
And start screaming to God "THIS ISNT FAIR!"
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...
/ Flick a razor and paint with red/ Illustrate injustices/ And everything unsaid/ Apologies won't undo/ The deeds that drove me to the edge/ Their echoes bounce like badly written cheques/ while I whisper Adieu
where 3 lives cross
The vertex at right angle to two,
Each acutely aware of the other
I calculate the distance between points.
I bisect the measure and fall short.
This is the geometry of the heart
One finite solution to a problem so clear.

My power of will conquers all because I know,
I know and I choose to be believe,
My strength knows no bounds.
Immortality is what my soul screams,
So too is the very nature of life,
Everything falls into balance,
The light shall always prevail.
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 lips are sealed,
But my thoughts are loud.
Replays of memories going on inside my head,
As I write out my sadness through this led.
I'm happier nowadays,
But I don't forget the nights where I didn't even know if I'd get fed..
Praying to this sky, hoping someone's listening...
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...
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...
The test is positive
Life again changed again
Help please can't do this
9 months go by
A clueless mother
With feet and arms that move
With crying long night
Wants to go...
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...
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...
sitting here, bored and alone
Missing you and playing on my phone
I decided to kick back and write some rhymes
To, Ya know, kill some time
Don't worry, you haven't left my mind
Even if you're far away and hard to find
I still believe you're one of a kind
And until the end of the...
the boy who wouldn't talk
He silently listened to what they said and all he'd do was nod his head.
His gleaming eyes always wide awake;
the boy in the room with so much heartache
They often said he wouldn't succeed for he was different
weak with trembling knees;
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...
a rain shower fades away in memory
and the air is thick in aftermath
drenched with memory

caught up by her distant looking silent revere

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...
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...

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.

for a friend, a special someone that won't walk away, When I'm in my deepest troubles she will stay, she will be my kryptonite and my spinach at the same time, I will be yours and you will be mine, if we ever get married, together we will get buried, but at the end it's us...
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.
I have my heart in my hand.
It is stiffened and dead,
All dirtied and covered in sand,
And unbearably cold and as heavy as lead.
A moment ago it just jostled and flew
Away from my chest, it was screaming in pain.
Reeling back and forth spouting nonsense and disdain...
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 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 bird's call alerts me get up quick, breakfast is near
The second hand quietly ticks as I try to make sense of each passing hour
Why this uncertainty, every gram of strength I greedily devour
The darkness back outside brings relief as the curtains are drawn one by...
How long will this last
You start pacing
Dry mouth is what you begin tasting
Breathing gets heavy
You start shaking
Your palms are sweaty
Unnecessary noise you begin making
All to distract yourself
From this strange mental health
You just learned entirely
About how you...
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...
Evanescent daylight seeping through like rain
is a forgotten candy bar,
Rediscovered at twenty-five
Like a chariot to my eight-year-old mind
Is the newness in old people
The wisdom of children
That of tiny prophets
I pray to the unseen
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...
I'd do it for a million. If could sell my soul I'll have some stacks up in that ceiling. If I could sell my soul yo if would see my gold locket all these gold rings and like twenty gold watches. If I could sell my soul I'd do it for the money if I could sell my soul it's sold...
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,
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...
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 wrote your name in air, it was blown away.
Then I wrote your name on my heart & I got Heart Attack.

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...
