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.
soul for a page
whatever became of the days
when the words flowed
fast and furious like a
wildfire burning in the soul
pick up the pen
pen to page
its too soon after midnight
but little choice left to me
i must speak
must put pen to page
once came natural as breathing...
be a vengeful *****
She'll destroy us, long before we can destroy her
Sooner or later, she'll tire of our harassment
And in diatribe she'll smite us from this planet
The end of humanity does not mean the end of the world
Seems the earth is still doing fine, since the...
(Dedicated to National Nude Day, July 14th)
The Ides of July are on their way.
Let’s get ready to celebrate National Nude Day
Like toddlers we’ll run naked through the sprinkler
We’ll be laughing innocent children dancing in the water
Whether you'd rather skinny...
always say the wrong thing
I never really told you
how special you were to me
and it's too late
you're like a diamond bracelet from Tiffany's
so beautiful to the eyes
warm to the heart
and envied by the others
you treasure it when you have it
and mourn it when it's gone
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...
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
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...
say its a curse! It's an emotion like any other , but just an emotion nothing more . Love is as mythical as the unicorn , a pot of gold at the end of the rainbow . People can't explain what love is , they can't put words to it, people can explain more about the unicorn and pot...
Why should I? You say why don't you listen? Is there any point? You say you can help. I never asked for help. You say I have no choice. Oh but I do. You can't force someone who is scared and not trusting to trust you! What are you thinking? You aren't thinking , you just want to...
nation you must live
Ever burdened by the homage you have to give
As they resume their fight after saluting Old Glory
Horns blowing, blue and red banners flying
Ever at odds while their nation is slowly dying
A sad enough ending for an even sadder story
Throw that accursed blue...
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...
the same as laying your soul bare.
You put your heart on the line
every time your words take like birds to the air.
You are naked as you undress your defences
behind metaphors, sentences and rhyme.
When you live life like an open book
where anyone can look,
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...
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...
UP on the chair
Tight around the neck
Kick it away
Down i go
But not for long
An embrace, very strong
My eyes pop
Down my cheeks they seep it reeks Leaving streaks
So warm it is
I feel my legs chill
Goosebumps run over me
Another pleasantry i dont...
Now’s the time to stand and fight”
Hands of my body
I’m nothing like
Your neighbor’s donkey”
“I have the Constitutional Right to 'F'
Who I want 'F'
When I want 'F'
Without fear of disease
And if you don't like it...
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...
all that darkness following her
she could see the sun coming up someplace ahead
always see the cheap advertising long
before some idiot actually hits the switch
stepped on the gas but her feelings kept pace
with this four stroke joke of a machine
one stroke for each time it...
You know not how you’ve offended me
So happily married
Living by the sea
With two children
Ages one and three
Eve, must you be
So ostentatious flamboyantly
Any sense of humility
Nor decorum or dignity
Eve, don’t misconceive...
.......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...
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...
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 watch it as it runs, next thing I know I am in a car, no handles inside, cage separating me from the driver. A few hours later I arrive, I walk into the gilding they lock the doors immidaiatly. I look back, they push me telling me I need to keep moving forward. We go through...
across the summer pond
they are small fragile pieces of light and color
but they are woven into the summer song
that plays in her heart
watch them float on the warm air
watch them spin and turn in the daises
and climb the hill like lovers to the shelter of
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
in her hello kitty slippers
she shines when thouse around her can only sparkle
there are dark angels in her stuffed bear collection
shes a gothic stoner emo-warrior princess
she wants to be heard
and its dreamy things shes gonna say
shes sketched in beautiful ways in my...
and I had to share it with someone.
Within the vast galaxies of your heart must lay the secrets I so desire. Nebulas of emotion twisted in eternal cardiological universes. Unreached by the most intimate connections, yet intriguing to my soul, all of your essence, wound by 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.
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.
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...
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 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...
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,
with late day sun
all the the children running with laughter's an joys
the men plowing in the rich soil
the women hands to hips all the washin to be done
hear em singing as each stitch laid to cloth
hear em laughing under the beautiful sun
aint no living to be done till you...
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...
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
than the sun that warms my skin.
You are more beautiful than the ocean that cools me off.
You are more beautiful than the flowers with the sweetest smells.
You are more beautiful than the stars that hypnotize my gaze unto the skies.
You are more beautiful than any of the beasts...
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...

probably characterize them as stream-of-consciousness poetry.
I could argue: this isn't poetry, this isn't art, this is only a human half-born.

But that doesn't matter now.
What intrigues me is the idea of...
louder then a lions roar. sneaker then a fox, quite like the wind, mysterious like the sea, like a bird in a cage ready to be set free.
Loyal as a dog, funnier then a hyaenas laugh, fearful like a rabbit, scary like the black spider on your wall. Couscous like the deer...

Deep, caring, and understanding.
I start to let my body fall limber and relaxed.
Until soon the sound of your voice transfers into
my mind, your soul is singing in my ear, and my heart is smiling.
Almost in a dream state.

You will be in a paradise

The same advice?

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...
of bright colors
not even rain will damp that smile
come on shine like a child's mind
all that darkness you feel is just state of mind
if anyone can smile in the rain you can
he is as free as happiness could be
in the living breathing dream of his balloon
no lonely dreamers in a...
