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,
brought a friend from the past back into my life.
I said,"I suppose you were as shocked to see me 'fat' as I was to see you so very thin?"She said,"Actually I was shocked to see you looking so OLD".......!

inside I am a hero I have strength and power.
outside I am a joke that I fabricate.
how long how long must I live in the world of pain.
enough is enough I must stand up and fight.
I am not in a dream world were superman comes and saves the day.
but in reality I decide if I...
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 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.
goddess notwithstanding the rain
she gives her grace so easily to the fleeting fast day
so apparent in her eyes that she in concept loves the ideal of him
but its the reality that leaves shame's dirty scar
her presence speaks to me in difficult times
her heartbeat whispers...
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...
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...
But too Good Not Share

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...
sunlight's softest kiss
in pantomime of surrender she gives up her smile
she gives romance of the eyes to me
and with few words softly spoken
ushers me into her world
perfections kitten she growls then laugh's
as i marvel at her nearness
her eyes have become pools of green...
The squinting eagle
The broadest needle
The amorous beetle
Brown food Brown shrew
You're the evil inside of you
I am an angry monk renewed
Scars of the anus
A tiny little penis
Eagles are the meanest
But forgiving too
Brown eagle Brown owl Bluebird...

Guilty and sick feeling as he approaches his girlfriends tombstone
All he had to do was be loyal and behave
But since he didn't, he knows he's the...
A thousand 'likes'. A thousand comments. A thousand tweets of the same breakfast while we marvel at coincidence.

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
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.
as a king
stand there and show them
the man you will become
sunlight is your great kingdom
forest glade your throne
wrestle your freedom from invisible army
fight to win the hand of some princess
long into summer you play hour upon hour
with friends around you to...

Cold stares, coming from a sort of an unforgettable creature
Staring back at me through the makeshift terror
On a reflection less mirror
I can hear her...
Layed out on the table
Calling my name and she's always capable
Of blocking out the torturous rain
with a bunddle of...
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...
do you want to step into my world. a dark and gritty place where it is unpleasant and awkward at times. where you can close your eyes and imagine a better place open them and find your self in a worse place than when you started. I am the thing that you are afraid at night. Im...
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...
as they come grin
the soft shine in a hard land
had a gift in his brotherly manner
it was vulture's way
the name didn't fit the man but few do
he was a kind soul
always had time to mend fences
had time to build bridges
and the boy could dance
look at him go in the firelight...
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 bounded by a priestly spell
Tough as nails and cold as ice
You withered when your daddy died
I was but 7 years old you see
And confident as boys can be
I saw you sobbing on the phone
I thought they tickled your funny bone
I walked up to your side to see
My family lived in Patterson Georgia
My Mother took us to church in Jesup a 30 minute drive
I was dating a guy named Roger...he had joined the Navy at 18 and was stationed in Guam
He sent me a letter saying that he would be calling his parents on Easter Sunday and...
With your squirrely gait
And your unmatched socks.
Living outside your box.
Hey man where's your home?
Where the hypocrites roam?
Where they sleep wide awake
Where the silly's at stake
Where they no longer laugh
And your every gaffe
Is awaited by fiends
In these hard hitting...
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 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...
belly of the beast in her mind
trapped between day and night
trapped between the devil and delight
what madness she asks
every madness she replies
trapped between day and night
trapped between the devil and delight
her lover is a mental game
her lust is a puzzle trap
public.. Leave feedback?
I sit here and drown in my own sorrow
Hoping I don't make it to tomorrow
Depression is latched on to me
And making me write this dark poetry
But it's strange how emotionless I really feel
So I harm myself to see if it's real
PS : I don't self...

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.
but she held onto the romance at heart
after all you can take the dreams out of the girl
but you'll never stop the girl from being a dreamer
and its the beautiful things in the world
that were close to her heart
and it was the beauty inside her that counted
To think this land was truly free.
As the darkness threatens to consume me,
Smoke and fire's all I see.
Close your eyes, open your heart, how do you forgive the murder of your father?
The ink of the scholar is worth a thousand timed more than the blood of the martyr.
.......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...
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...
