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 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...
at the altar
My veil of white being lifted
Lifted by the patient hands that waited for me
Violins playing “Ave Maria” as wedding bells ring
Smiling as Father Greg and the choir sing
Someone who makes my whole world spin as we say our vows
Eyes promising loyalty here and...
as this is a work in progress:
:::quiet your mind:::
He is poise and authority
I arch sinuously, leopardesque
...quietly impatient, a squirm, a twitch runs through my thigh...
His staying hand and hard eyes call me to still, pause for me...
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...
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...
by a coldness in the reflection of my own eyes.
As if they know something I refuse to believe.
Like he's daring me to see beyond the lies.
I've written poetry about chess,
as a central metaphor for the way I go about living life.
I confess that I like Knights the best.
This girl wants to die, I remember when I used to live by a knife, but I told her I really try, she is now gone she won't be a mom or a wife, she told me she was happy but it was a lie, she only wanted to die, I can't help but to think she is alive, if she is really gone...
Feels like time has slowed down
And I've been left behind
Time knows nothing of heartache it simply moves on without a glance back
As I glance back I'm reminded of what was and teased by what could have been
I hear it around me
The sounds of loneliness
The patters 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...
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...
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
Gotta promise you'll keep it..
I fear something I'm good at
Poetry. Can you believe that?
I've grown up in a society to where poetry is feminine
Unless it's coming from someone famous like Eminem
Im at war with myself because of that fear
Feeling like less of a man if my poetry...
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.
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.
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...
writing about you
You aren't worth a single page in the book that is my life
Nor an excerpt, yet I keep writing
Writing about the trail of destruction that was left in your wake
Leading men on and leaving them behind
Sundays you lift your hands to God in praise
The rest of...
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...
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...
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...
and i see you. thank you for waking me up. I am only next and so i wait. i hope you pick me but im so sure she'll be your trailer baby. And ill have to nap until twelve, put aside a little weed and a few drinks and shower again

no souls is a mind with no thoughts
A shell of what you once were, caused by the walls of depression
An island of tears, surrounded by fear, untrusting of the unknown
Isolation, a curse, trapped in a great expanse of lost human emotions
Unguided in this dark space, a...
I have been treated like trash and used like a toy, do I have feelings? are my dreams to much they surpass the ceilings? I guess I can't change my self for the better, I only have to finish this letter, please forgive me I'm a mess, I am a bad person I am worthless, I...
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...

and the window pane. Desperately trying to enter the paradise outside whilst some invisible force kept her back. Exhausted she lay listlessly, feeling all hope drain away. She watched the sun go down and hoped she would live through the night to fight another day.
it's how this song starts but it makes me think who is she and will she love me back? I'm a fool because I would love everyone, or even anyone, love is my torment, Im not good enough for anyone, maybe that's why all the girls I gave my heart to choose to throw it away, I...
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...
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 didn't want to be here.
I tried, I tried so hard, I dug in my heals as they pushed me the last few feet,
but what they want they get.
as I look before me there's no where to go but down, behind me they block the road to safety.
what more do you want from me? I cry. I've...
Guarding our essence like an electric fence
Though unintentionally shocking those who touch into loving us
We learn to laugh more freely and cry with meaning
Understanding the difference between heart break and disappointment
Learning to be heart broken by...
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...
the world and still feel like no one cares about you
Do you know how to feel to feel so vulnerable in a situation you have no control over
You feel so lost like life is trapped inside of your body
Like no one hears the thoughts coming from your voice
Everyday feels like...
from a day full of weep
You drift away into your own mind
Just to see stuff you never thought you could find
It's not all peaceful and happiness though
As evil thoughts and nightmares can begin to grow
Haunting, unbreakable fear
Caused by these nightmares you can't steer...
that path worth walking now singed..
tireless becomes the body used and frail..
soul slipping out from all ways..
raising life puppet strings in hand..
watching the wires twirl and fray..
not to high a fall to break a bone..
high enough for the bruises to show..
there one bad breakup pain is there
Look up at the sky no stars is there to shine bright to remind you why you put your dreams there
Darkroom get darker the days get longer long lasting pain turns into depression a smile you once had turned into an obsession
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...

just reading other stories that relate to me but I really REALLY needed some feedback on poetry so here goes:

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.
Wool pulled over eyes
Distraction breeds distraction
Keep the citizens blind
Keep them fat and happy
Right up till they die
Ship them off to FEMA camps
Or shot down in their place
Waking up to swat team's
Assault rifle in your face
No empathy for the human...
