as black as the night , with an eye that's just daring you to fight and get blown to the next year .
Everything that's loud quiets down whenever they're here
Family disputes I'm always caught up in one everyday , I so many different cops I can tell the difference in one who...
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,
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 a soldier because my life is a war
It'll leave you ****** up but you can take a tour
Emotions frozen so I'll never hurt like before
I'll never know why Ive been someone to adore
Being emotionless isn't cool, it's bad
I don't even know how to take the few...
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...
music and just sit
Usually on my back porch step, after dark when everyone else has already gone to bed
Just me, the night sky, and some really pretty stars
I would slip out that bottle of Jager I've had since God knows when
And the pot my cousin gave me
Mixing the alcohol...
His therapist told him make two lists. Bad effects of being addicted to you: I fall in a hole: I say I can quit but I always relapse: I am tired and I just wand to die: I get weaker: I loose my spirit and my strength: I just can't saying do as I won't. I am just...
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'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 alone at the end of your dime
someplace on the road between the here and the now
out of smokes and outa luck
barefaced to the carnival of night
the day passes slowly into the vastness of the past
hungry eyes puddled with traces of regret
for all the places you've been and...
To be honest, I don't know how much longer I'll survive
When every night I'm praying :
"Please God Let Me Die"
Wakes up and distracts his mind
With video games and music : "I'll be fine"
The second he isn't distracted it hits like a hurricane
And for the rest of the day, he...

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...
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...
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...
steady on my roof
its pattern on the slate walkway is a confusion of circles
birds continue to sing
cars continue to speed by
it is only i that has ground to a halt by this
rainy season isnt supposed to be here yet
so why have you clogged my day
with your wet...
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...
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...
and recreating it as a piece of art being recycled by time and use, life chooses its own way moved by passions and adrenaline
How wise and essential mind is in this journey?
Are choices meant to be born in heart or mind?
what if heart chooses and mind is in disagreement?
.......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...
while you worry if you're worth it
Throwing curses to the person that helped bring you to this earth
You keep it bottled up til someone judges or attacks then all your rage hits the surface
Once the calm is here and the storm is gone, you're back wondering your purpose
I can't tell but I do know this. when I first laid eyes know you I knew I could be who I really am. for the brief moment of my life I had found the peace I long searched for. you had me lost in your beauty. your beautiful blond hair that makes me believe that it was...
so hard to explain
down here in the rain pretending He is vain
Where should He go what should he do...no matter what happens he still thinks of you.
Somewhere in the dessert where plants tend to die, he handles a flower, pretending to fly.
Faraway lands expecting arrivals of...
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...
this invisible wall between us, pretending that any hole we make will connect us as one....
an illusion it is, as our ways have shifted and our perception has morphed ....
fading slowly the idealized laze flowing smoothly down the waterfall of broken dreams and platonic heroes...
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.
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...
The windows of her home had long ago broken,
The shattered pieces lost to the wind
Cold and desolate, she cowers
And then the rain stops,
The wind stops,
The storm stops
She looks, then, and sees
The pelting rain,
The whipping wind,
And the raging storm does lie...
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...

but I stepped on a frog that came hopping out of nowhere,
I felt it's bones crunch, made me throw up my lunch, some chunks even got into my hair
So I turned and went home, and I sat all alone and I realized something with a wince,
For as my shoe came down, I swore I heard the...

a small hospital near Tampa Florida, it was believed that he had nothing left of any value. Later when the nurses were going through his meager possessions, they found this poem. Its quality and content so impressed the staff that copies were made and given to every nurse in the...
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 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...
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...
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 cannot quite explain this excruciating, earthly pain. I can't take this life no more. From the start, I've lost the war. Lovely Grim, please liberate me from this life of agony"
This is a repost of a poem I wrote a while ago. I got some positive feedback on it, so maybe it'll...
