haunts every dream
Waking me up.
I try not to scream.
The word hits my gut
It captures my breath
I can't even say it
The word brings death
I hear it in conversation
To the people abused
A harmless flirtation
Leaving me bruised
suicide be thy name
horrors blind to the dove
**** on your blind and
hovering over your false courage
ghost hope and spent charity
clinging to human frailty...
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.
To see the faint rainbow projected into the clouds.
It takes my breath away beautifully.
The peace and the tranquility rise within me,
As does the feeling of loneliness and emptiness,
And then the memories resurface it's only just me.
I look down at my hand and see it is empty...
And leave me Devoid.
Left with out life
Drained of dignity
I look at the knife
Replaying it vividly
Living in my eternal strife
I search my soul for signs of life
A deep antipathy
For a simple word
Heart in captivity
My mind deterred
Suddenly finding my urge to fight
Either that or stay out of sight
But no matter what it will be alright
Trapped in my eternal night
I climb with all my strength and might
To reach the stars that float above
Feeling a hope for peace and love
Suddenly gravity starts to...
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,
door slams open
She jumps in fear
Her dad stumbles in
Profanities under his breath with twelve pack in hand
Sliding door slams shut
She jumps again and looks away
One hand with booze, the other grasping the wall
He shuts his door and let's his can of Ol' Buddy breathe...
Each moment, pleasure and pain
Leaves it's wake in me
These scars, my armour
Wrought in battle
Each hard fought and won
Teeth pulled from demons
Doubt and shame
Courage, enduring and bold
With the surety of faith
In the brevity of fate...
if I'm the right one
when the halls empty
and orange lines stretch into black
the world just for one
love like a straightjacket
and safe from eachother
I want you to miss me
that's why I'll never be there
to find out if you do or don't
growing up and enjoying...
of moonlight pool upon the ground
loud voices fade to nothing all I hear are the crows
but eventually it all disappears until there is no sound
across a field I dash unseen
through the brush I crash haphazardly
around tall trees I careen
suddenly met with a skeletal grim so...
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...
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...
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...
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.
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...
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...
my most special one;
Your radiant smile is as bright as the sun;
You're smart and caring and have many great charms,
And my heart really sings when you're wrapped in my arms.
I'm happy you chose me from all of the rest,
And I'm proud 'cause I know that I got the best.
Every Day Angels
There are every day Angels
who walk into your life.
They appear at the moment
when your world is full of strife.
Some are hard to see , as they make
their way, straight into your heart.
Others stand out like Blazing stars
as they give...
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
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...
It's a mystery
No telling what is
And what tomorrow brings
Its a mystery
Let us understand
Why when where and who
For the sake of knowledge
Is knowing the truth
It's a mystery
Oh yes A mystery
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 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.
but it started building up in a reply to a fellow veterans message on fb. It's about the 1000 yard stare, I'm having problems with it's rhythm or pentameter(?). I've never written any poetry before. I never understood what it's purpose was until I got sprung on a girl and couldn...
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...
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...
That I may experience their deaths
Over, and over, until mine eyes awaken
For though i may sleep,
I shall know no rest
For ever, and ever...
Let your vengeance course through me
Thy rage inflict weeping sores upon the soul
That i may live once more,
And in light of day, devour...
Here is a cake,
I baked it myself;
I filled it with love,
And left it on a shelf.
It's been sitting there,
For only god knows how long;
Just found it yesterday,
And...Oh dear god that looks wrong.
There's a graveyard of flies,
Coating the top;
My friend accidentally dropped it...
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...
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...
of the soul
teardrops of blood creating waterfalls
sometimes i wonder can one possibly survive
i was nine when i met my first pain
it followed me and shaped me left me bruised in a wide open space
i was cold and alone
solitude as my best friend
but i escaped my deepest...
and we only grow farther
Another poem written for you
Time only makes it harder
Bags in hand, what do I do?
You'll never know about how I listen to "our songs"
Or the way I miss you when I'm awake
You always knew when something was wrong
Darling, the memories you and I would...
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...
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...
in a bind
And gone insane
Can't find any purpose
Don't want to search
Won't find it in serpent
Won't find it in church
Glued to the border
Of torpid and death
Trying to live
but losing my breath
Fight to survive
I'm playing the game
Can't wait to revive
Ignite my flame
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...
