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...
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'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
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...
like to post some of my favourite poems. Here to start with is a little love poem by the Hungarian writer Attila Jószef. Don't try Google to translate it, it comes out total gobbledygook. I have added my attempt at least to capture the spirit of the original in free...
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...
That I may experience their deaths
Over, and over, until mine eyes awaken
For though i may sleep,
I shall know no rest
For ever, and ever...
Let your vengeance course through me
Thy rage inflict weeping sores upon the soul
That i may live once more,
And in light of day, devour...
haunts every dream
Waking me up.
I try not to scream.
The word hits my gut
It captures my breath
I can't even say it
The word brings death
I hear it in conversation
To the people abused
A harmless flirtation
Leaving me bruised
whos been raising me all my life might not be my biological father. Really broken me in two. Ever since our relationship hasn't been the same. But I don't feel any different towards him. He was, still and always will be my dad.
I've been trying to write a poem about it but 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...
for the guy I like who has his GF already we were close in the past but we're strangers to each other now
Today as I go home,
I really feel so alone,
Thinking of you made me feel ao blue,
For you love her now, and I'm still in love with you.
I long for your touch and warm...
door slams open
She jumps in fear
Her dad stumbles in
Profanities under his breath with twelve pack in hand
Sliding door slams shut
She jumps again and looks away
One hand with booze, the other grasping the wall
He shuts his door and let's his can of Ol' Buddy breathe...
Ensnared, they strangle my veins, puppeting me ever further below
Blackened mist cloaks the mind, decomposing the essence of progression
The corpses of the past reach, and take hold on weakened limbs
Sunken eyes, that devour that which the future couldve held...
To see the faint rainbow projected into the clouds.
It takes my breath away beautifully.
The peace and the tranquility rise within me,
As does the feeling of loneliness and emptiness,
And then the memories resurface it's only just me.
I look down at my hand and see it is empty...
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...
Each moment, pleasure and pain
Leaves it's wake in me
These scars, my armour
Wrought in battle
Each hard fought and won
Teeth pulled from demons
Doubt and shame
Courage, enduring and bold
With the surety of faith
In the brevity of fate...
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,
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...
locks, crows in flocks
No passion no play
Living in a box, devoured by hawks
Sought from around the bay
Separated by history and place, distance was not the case
She haven't looked away
Her blue eyes looked through the disgrace
Not the eyes of a bird of prey, but entangled...
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...
It's a mystery
No telling what is
And what tomorrow brings
Its a mystery
Let us understand
Why when where and who
For the sake of knowledge
Is knowing the truth
It's a mystery
Oh yes A mystery
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...
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...
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...
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...
in a bind
And gone insane
Can't find any purpose
Don't want to search
Won't find it in serpent
Won't find it in church
Glued to the border
Of torpid and death
Trying to live
but losing my breath
Fight to survive
I'm playing the game
Can't wait to revive
Ignite my flame
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.
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...
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...
my most special one;
Your radiant smile is as bright as the sun;
You're smart and caring and have many great charms,
And my heart really sings when you're wrapped in my arms.
I'm happy you chose me from all of the rest,
And I'm proud 'cause I know that I got the best.
and we only grow farther
Another poem written for you
Time only makes it harder
Bags in hand, what do I do?
You'll never know about how I listen to "our songs"
Or the way I miss you when I'm awake
You always knew when something was wrong
Darling, the memories you and I would...
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.
Suddenly finding my urge to fight
Either that or stay out of sight
But no matter what it will be alright
Trapped in my eternal night
I climb with all my strength and might
To reach the stars that float above
Feeling a hope for peace and love
Suddenly gravity starts to...
if I'm the right one
when the halls empty
and orange lines stretch into black
the world just for one
love like a straightjacket
and safe from eachother
I want you to miss me
that's why I'll never be there
to find out if you do or don't
growing up and enjoying...
