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...
The pillowy cloud...
Seagulls are swooping..
Squawking so proud...
My chest it tingles...
As I breathe in..
The sweet scent of the ocean..
I'm at the deep end...
Water surrounds me..
Enclosing me in...
The sun is not shining...
For this is the end...
you care, go figure.
Depression seems so very clever
Traps you and holds you down
But makes you so good at hiding frowns
Doesn't have to be a reason
Your mood is always changing like the seasons
Only way to end the suffer
Is to admit that depression is tuffer
she is a faster lairs line
unwind her spooled mind
memory a keepsake in hand conquers a trinket lost
eat mandrake to the root but what the cost
unspoiled her thoughts broil in her head
steam from every seam
salty her groin but she declines the offered coin
Title: You Forgot About Me
There I lay, comfortably on my broken bed, waiting for your return.
My dear, where are you?
Without you, I've become a vexed void.
Pessimism gripped onto an endless eternity.
I honestly hate having...
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...
She never felt well.
She would always be sad;
But no one could tell.
But then they started to notice;
She she doesn't know what to do,
Always asking how she was doing;
If only they saw if from her point of view.
She answers "just fine"
Continues on with her day.
As she fights...
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...
The death of a loved one had taken it's toll
The day you died I paid a fee, because part of you died in me
The lust green forest my heart contained, now smoldering ashes... Nothing remained
I could do nothing but watch in shock, as my whole world rocked
Months have gone...
when she left me,
mad as she was when she left,
but it's the only way she knows how leave me,
I know the type,
but so broken inside.
I am attracted to her intensity,
that's a part of her insanity,
no even flow,
beauty through the autumn leaves
sets the heart ablaze with reminiscence and wishes
the day filled with brilliant color and life
makes my heart as carefree and light as joy itself
the crisp air with its winters foretaste
the autumn afternoon gives me wanderlust
Floating along this river Styx,
Its icy waters silence my tongue,
Its fiery embers burn my lungs,
Light is fading, darkness abound,
In its depths I’ll surly drown,
Conflicting thoughts of a maddened youth,
Where lies are sweet and bitter the truth,
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...
the lawn chair has dead leaves stuck to it
its one bent arm an expression of pained indifference
mud clings to its feet
and a single vine like a thin snake
wraps its way across its frame seeking the sun
i pull at it to set the chair right
to seat myself
and suck at the...
break the glass,
ourselves from ourselves,
with our soul's mannequins,
and inhale the true essence of ourselves...
I see you,
but I don't see you,
only the skin stretched across your bones,
is visible to the naked eyes,
and if the eyes are windows...
this for my girlfriend. I hope others here might appreciate it.
If I were to have but one wish in my life
it would be for you to love me and be my wife
As years go by and our love does grow
it is my wish to let you know
that all the stars up in the sky
will never leave a...
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 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...
ruptured in my lounge chair
grey faced i mumble a few parting words over her
before i lay out the finest bone china
all the makings of tea and biscuits
all the fixings of murder
with the sounds of the snapping of necks
sharp wet sound fresh on the air
she was here to mourn her...
Billowing smoke shadows the horizon,
as the bodies burn at my tired feet
The lifeless all around
as I walk this weary road
gasping for a breath
as the smoke engulfs my soul
Nowhere to turn
nowhere to run
nowhere to hide
The fire burns so hot
like a dancing, fiery...
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...
Autumnal colors flood the scene-
A mass of varicolored hues,
In shades of orange, and gold, and green.
The scent of Fall is in the air;
Old Jack Frost is drawing near.
Dying leaves dance in the wind;
Their last hurrah with us to share.
around her white curls
Gave me life,
Like never before
She was everything
I wanted to be,
Graceful and charismatic,
Divine and angelic,
She was pure perfection,
Like something of a fairytale
I admired her beauty,
The way she strutted
Around the earth
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...
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.
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...
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...
men the same
Snuffing out the free and wild in attempt to make them tame
The "weird" ones stand out as an eyesore for us all
So we bite and curse and spit at them in attempt to force them dull
There are those that succeed high into the chain of wicked deed
Commanding those below...
such value, before I wasted it all that day ,
Now an empty shell named Scott, lives life in shades of gray ,
I act like life is ok, my smile says everything’s fine, ,
But beyond it lies the carnage, buried deep inside my mind ,
A constant battle wages, as the enemy try’s...
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.
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...
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
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 sit and watch, as my son sleeps,
I love him so much, that my heart just weeps.
I remember a son so long ago,
The fire in his eyes, as he continued to grow.
But something happened along the way,
His fire began to fade, slowly away.
His love for the family began to...
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 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
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...
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...
How does one explain this?
Can you open your eyes and see?
Bad things happen in this world;
Things that should never be.
So stop a moment to gather
The thoughts inside your head.
Step on a different path of life
Of Someone Else instead.
How can I explain...
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...
was planned down to his kisses
was everything she expected it to be
wasn't long before truth showed
it was a love like a paper flower
but it would never grow never thrive
it was just ink and paper rendering of
what could have been
her paint by number love affair
The body of imperfection.
The blood flows.
The feeling unspoken,
language lacks words.
you really hurt.
I'm laying down,
face in my hands.
The slighest need,
for another glance.
These eyes unreal,
a paradise in a glance.
I wish only,
for another dance.
such a cold place
pen has a sage who delves for inner face truth's
the page entrances with silent mocking
word thought dances just outside the blocking
the sage thirsty now craves sweet success
but only digs graves in the sheets of paper white
mourn the poems never born...
the autumn sunlight
and within our conversation she smiles radiantly
gives glimpse of hearts truth
natural beauty rendered of the soul
is a masterpiece that no artist of word or image
in subtle colors fine lines can duplicate
her burnished hair spread by morning breeze
please uncover it
It's like a fire that needs to be lit
Show me the kindling; that I may light
I'll start it burning, ever so bright
Release all the love; that I know is there
I'll treat you so gentle; you'll know that I care
I know you've been hurting, but together we'll...
and sitting scarecrow's style cross-legged
waiting for the sunrise
waiting for the swift silent desert world to unfold
come sit here a silent sentinel with me
wait for the swift sun to beat its hard feet upon the ground
wait for harsh winter's hand to be rescinded
experiences let be
I guess the brains waves
ignoring space and time,
how could it be content
with our limited
hugely bordered lives
It takes a strong soul
to keep surviving
filled with genuine smiles,
or, a run with the woods,
or a sip...
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...
.......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...
