fearfully echo on the leaf strewn trail
with intonations of a blushing bride to be
she makes a graceful vision
obscured only by her hamfisted collection
of undesirable father figures
who stand round the groom and brow beat
him with dire dreams
but his eyes are for...
with late summer heat
at a distance a woman's voice in song
the rich sound reaching for your heart
with feelings of life lived joyous and bold
i walk the sunsoaked road
to the farm field to find her
where the dusty faces of the pickers greet with smiles
silk wraps the parchment
blue and gold ribbon of such regal device
but this neat folded apparel
tangles in my mind
with fog of memories frame
door table tray
the parchment bears the blessings
but the ink is as black as his heart
cold as his intent
child i was
child no more...
You thought that I was perfect, but I'm far from it. I know I'm young and human, but that's no excuse. You my not understand. I don't know if this was on purpose, and I don't know if you'll forgive me. I know I have to tell you the truth, but my heart tells me to wait. I'm...
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...
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...
who don't follow directions
End up becoming competition 'deletions'
Women can’t be blamed responsible
Till men are held accountable
Misogynists beware, for Hell hath no fury
Like a woman named ‘Hillary’
Tell the minions of Hobby Lobby
To keep their hands of...
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...
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...
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...
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
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...
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...
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...
did lead me away
from the setting sun and all its warm glories
took me to a place of mysteries
she silenced my velvet tongue with her smile
placed some music in the sweet summer air
pulled me into a soft dance close to
her lace and rose scented silken skin
let me loose myself in...
I write him in my lines, I want to be his girl, he was never meant as mine.
I drew him in my world; He is always on my mind; I draw his every line. It hurts when he's unkind.
I drew him in my world; I draw him all the time, but I don't know where to draw the line...
Blackened ink inside their veins,
Their souls formed from the essence,
Of my pleasures and my pains,
A deal with the devil gives them life,
Written in my own hand,
Where others see angels I see demons,
I can not understand,
Within each letter a cut,
Behind each word a tear...
breathin cause it might disturb
im steppin in the shadows of great men
with one eye on the popularity of what im sayin
but i dont think anybody sees me anyway
cept her and its real hard to tell what shes thinkin
dressed to the nines and she lickable head to toe
hard body honey...
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...
Your light has shone down
Blazing with colour
Filling my heart and soul
Your beauty radiating out for all to see
Your love given whole heartily
Swamping my body with feelings of desire
Giving me comfort when I am lonely
Sharing your soul as I share mine with you
So keep your...
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...
.......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...
the worn wood blackened
by weary footfall
constantly retracing steps
sometimes with worries or strife
sometimes retraced with loves forlorn wish
it has ceaseless wonders of hope
a spaghetti of things lived felt seen heard
that give credence to...
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...
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...
on page in nights silence
the names and faces of his students
vividly painted to him in small ways on each page
the girl with her flourish of drawings
in the margins of her work
a bird delicately drawn to appear to be dropping
the words onto the page
in amongst her arguments...
Fall into cracks crevasses and creases,
In darkened spaces,
Illuminate not these forsaken places,
Hope is failing,
The heart slows its pounding,
Apocalypse rising trumpets sounding,
My darkest days,
May my hollow casket fill empty graves...
where kookaburras laugh
The friendly country, laidback and free
The country that prides doing things by half
Australia, so wondrous to me.
The country with economic prosperity
The country with enviable democracy
The well-heeled mansions by the sea
Australia, so wondrous to me...
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...
to slip into my dreams,
It's a world where everything is not what it seems.
I imagine your face, your body, and mind,
Am I abnormal to wonder if you're mine?
You know just what to say and just what to do,
You have me falling in love with something long overdue.
As I wake...
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.
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...
and kiss you
in every beautiful place
so that you can
never go back to them
without tasting me
like blood in your mouth
I will destroy you
in the most beautiful way possible
And when I leave
you will finally understand
why storms are named
nah nah nah whatcha thinkin?
whatcha thinkin....you spelled it wrong
whatcha thinkin...you didnt capitalize
are you satan's spawn you cant write that here
i will come to your house and eat your dog
nah nah nah whatcha thinkin?
ill follow you round tearing you down till you let...
and keep it well.
Its yours to keep as you can tell.
When your heart becomes real free.
Bring me my heart back to me.
Brushes hair away from face.
Arms around you carefully place.
Looking deeply into smiling eye.
Hugs you tightly "wish I was your guy".
Tear runs down my...
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
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.
feeling I get.
No matter how hard I try I can't help but feel a hint of regret.
Though this hollowness tells me its more then the usual feelings I've met.
My eyes are wide open yet I feel like I can't see a thing.
I wish someone could lead me and tell me exactly what to bring...
by eluded words I thought
I thought yesterday
but can't quite catch
down a slipper
of translucent egg yolks
that split hairs where
we used to cope in silence,
like wearing a molasses coat
on your first trip to the sun:
like i should be sipping martini's in some classy bar
like i should be flyin first class
looking like i got the cash to get unstuck
but a miami sun gonna melt my snowbunny butt for sure
down here with some human fleas
and desperado's with sweaty smiles
could use a...
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...
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...
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
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.
