trapped by happenstance
In bleak and bitter cold.
Each one possessed a stick of wood
Or so the story?s told.
Their dying fire in need of logs
The first man held his back
For of the faces round the fire
He noticed one was black.
The next man looking ?cross the way
Saw one not...
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.
and think of all the wars I had to fight
And pull from that negativity to make art
Poetic justice straight from my heart
Where should I start?
As my mind and my heart start drifting apart
I've become cold but more wise
But still considered silly for praying to the sky
and I the ethereal moon
whose gentle rays and sharpened rays flickered in gloom.
Your frightening flicks didn't scare me away,
for it took more than just a glare anyways.
Close yet far--- our bond would never scarred
even if this distance is just a mirage.
And on that very...
herself to display the power of her beauty
and practiced in the art of visual seductions
she desires to be intoxicating
to move men to noble heights without saying a word
to seduce the hearts of men with just a smile
to be center stage in the brilliant light of adulation
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.
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...
For while I know I shouldn't cave
I can't help wanting more
The monsters inside have made it clear
Tonight is my last night
And though people keep telling me no
The monsters are always right
For while they smile and say it's okay
I suffer in silence and sigh
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...
I’m really trying to love you
And take you out of your despair
You don’t respond to any comfort
Yours is a heart with no one there
I think you gave up years ago
A little child discarded in the past
Though you gave them your love deeply
They always left, it didn’t last...
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 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...
refusing to speak to me
we sit in the bedroom
the tv goes unheard in the corner
softly whispering nonsense to itself
like a madman
she is sitting with her perfumes and paints
looking distantly into the mirror
i study her face from across the room...
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...
your life for a reason, a season or a lifetime.
When you figure out which one it is,
you will know what to do for each person.
When someone is in your life for a REASON,
it is usually to meet a need you have expressed.
They have come to assist you through a difficulty;
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...
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...
hand to the tiller
to find that brief moment
on the crest of a twenty foot breaking wave
as a nor'easter wilds the sea
when you glimpse it
in the stillness between heaven and earth
she hid in her bedroom
looking at a late fall paris passing rainstorm
and on the run down east...
From where do they come?
It's like a million little things, have piled into one.
They build up together, in the dark parts of my mind.
And gather their fury, in the parts I am blind.
How long has it been? Have I not taken care?
My ego tells me lies, it keeps me unaware.
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
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...
even though, we were done.
Just because you still have feelings?
Remember, I said mine were gone..
I understand your actions
you did it because you were hurt.
I'm sorry it wasn't my intention..
but I won't let you put me on alert.
Where we go from here, can only be told by time...
But pulling it out after stabbing me twice
Just leaving me there, bleeding out my life
Thing about pain is, it makes you feel alive
Even at your worst, it's what thrills you the most
Your body becomes a host to a mental parasite
Addicted to the pain, when love is always...
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,
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...

for lions heart since days of old .
silver pure and diamond bright,
crowns sweet beauty in soft moonlight.
copper bands and jade adorn,
the healing heart of love so warm.
platinum shine and opal fire
a scholars hunger of minds inquire.
crowns of quartz, of brass and...
paths of life to come in to focus
sharper each decision.
roads not traveled fade from sight
as we forward race to final night.
dreams of places, people, and things
secret whispers, to choirs screams
rail against fate and struggle in vain.

Caressing my timid soul
The sweet scent of your breath
Sparks a fiery passion in my veins
While Mother Moon shines upon us
We consimate our love
A passionate love none could know
For you are my raven
And I am your doe
.......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...
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...
through parched earth seep.
Bones of the past all neatly arrayed,
My futile scratchings all displayed.
Rended flesh once pink, now green,
All about this ghastly scene.
Nerves still arc in pains grim charge,
Life of agony in words writ large.
Lungs still gasp with labored breath...
angry reminder they do shine.
marking minutes and hours of night,
while i lie with muscles tight.
tension running through my frame,
while echoing mind calls your name.
arms so empty to hold no more,
tear filled eyes and heart so sore.
the need to hold you my dear Beth,
I'm everything you never had, oh I'm the good within the bad
I'm the mistakes you can never compromise
I'm the unfairness you'll never comprehend
I'm somewhere between your future and your past, I'm your own worst enemy
I'm your mind's worst Felony
I'm the one who'll...
there by the wooden door
burned into its crispy surface is a poem aimed at her heart
a poem in the form of a image
a graceful piece illustrated to the minds eye
a flowing of words and thought that only
a great painter could put to canvas
it was of a love she knew many years ago...
person I think about.In the morning after I eat and go out.When I jump in the shower to wash my body and head.And the last, after prayer, when I go to bed.You're long, silky, curly, brown hair.So light, so soft.....so fair.Glistening with every single move you make.Making me...
