that keeps you sleeping
going around and around and around
Like the sound of your mothers heartbeat
while you slumbered in the womb
shining like a thousand stars
as you blazed your way back to the tomb.
A bird's call alerts me get up quick, breakfast is near
The second hand quietly ticks as I try to make sense of each passing hour
Why this uncertainty, every gram of strength I greedily devour
The darkness back outside brings relief as the curtains are drawn one by...
Old memories bite
My knees hit the floor before my feet
Hands folded, dry eyes waiting for answers
Clocks ticking away
You are my cancer
There's no need to pray
Love is deadly
May the Grim play his vinyl
Taken when least ready
Love is a trial
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...
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...
How long will this last
You start pacing
Dry mouth is what you begin tasting
Breathing gets heavy
You start shaking
Your palms are sweaty
Unnecessary noise you begin making
All to distract yourself
From this strange mental health
You just learned entirely
About how you...
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...
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...

a rain shower fades away in memory
and the air is thick in aftermath
drenched with memory
as we lay benith the overhang

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...
but gave me a glimpse of the future through his eyes.
You looked at me
and held my eyes
Yours crinkled when
My world stopped
Which was weird --
because I was
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 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 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.
rest in peace
If I should die while Im awake
I hope the ones I love are safe
Should I be paranoid waiting for karma to get me ?
Or should I ride like billy the kid letting my weapons protect me
I see death peek from every corner
I embrace the horror cause the life of...
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 November 2012. .
From Heaven To Hell, And back again:
Flat notes flowing in the symphonic.
Flowing on the notes of our Duality.
The Beautiful Chaos.
Negative and Positive Charged...
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...
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...
I wrote it a few months ago when I was struck silly with infatuation for a guy. Totally over it now but I do like what I've written.
Your lips brush against mine
Two share the same breath
I feel your kiss
Travel the highway of my nerves
To my fingertips
My power of will conquers all because I know,
I know and I choose to be believe,
My strength knows no bounds.
Immortality is what my soul screams,
So too is the very nature of life,
Everything falls into balance,
The light shall always prevail.
..........It's in the midst of winter.The wind whistles its song.The flowers I loved and cherished,All but their memory is gone.The trees are dressed like crystalAs snowflakes fill the air.Winter has a special beautyThat is beyond compare.But the cold nips at the fingers,Puts a...
you can see everyone breathing while you drown
Pain constricts my lungs like a snake
Unable to utter a sound
Sucking out the air I intake
I've learned not to take painless breaths for granted
Any breath could be my last
Chest burning as if they were branded
Only if a...
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...
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,
where 3 lives cross
The vertex at right angle to two,
Each acutely aware of the other
I calculate the distance between points.
I bisect the measure and fall short.
This is the geometry of the heart
One finite solution to a problem so clear.
I have my heart in my hand.
It is stiffened and dead,
All dirtied and covered in sand,
And unbearably cold and as heavy as lead.
A moment ago it just jostled and flew
Away from my chest, it was screaming in pain.
Reeling back and forth spouting nonsense and disdain...
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...
poem on it:
people find me still
searching for answer
just being a dancer
my release, my thrill
wordless in connection
I find myself
loving, caring to perfection
in dance, point of intersection
a change in directions
hate these predilections!
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...
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...
Evanescent daylight seeping through like rain
is a forgotten candy bar,
Rediscovered at twenty-five
Like a chariot to my eight-year-old mind
Is the newness in old people
The wisdom of children
That of tiny prophets
I pray to the unseen
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...
My lips are sealed,
But my thoughts are loud.
Replays of memories going on inside my head,
As I write out my sadness through this led.
I'm happier nowadays,
But I don't forget the nights where I didn't even know if I'd get fed..
Praying to this sky, hoping someone's listening...
.......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...
