.......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...
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
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.
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...
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 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...
..........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...
but you've never answered and dear god you're about as sick as cancer. I see nothing but death when I hear your name if I don't believe I bring shsme, but I'm not one to curse your name, and God I've been awaiting a reply and god I've opened up my eye's you wouldn't believe me...
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.
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...
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...
/ Flick a razor and paint with red/ Illustrate injustices/ And everything unsaid/ Apologies won't undo/ The deeds that drove me to the edge/ Their echoes bounce like badly written cheques/ while I whisper Adieu
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...
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.

Pretend that you listened and reread
each and every letter I've sent.
Just composed letters, that made words.

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
in 2012 I finished it.

and clench into a fist
My eyes closed thinking I've taken enough of this guys sh#t
My fist moves in the wind my opponent cries out
I see blood coming out his nose and his mouth
Then my heart began race thrilled by the fear on his face
As he fell I jumped on top...
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...
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
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...
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
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

Tooth to the rind
I bite the hand
I kill the...
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.
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...
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...
that you'll just go away
We sometimes even pray
Not for happiness, but for today to be our last day
Praying for death
Hoping while we sleep, we take our last breath
We wake from our sleep into the real nightmare
And start screaming to God "THIS ISNT FAIR!"
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...
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...
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...
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...
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...
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...
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 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...

while trying to get over a huge crush.
Every time you ask how I am
My world crashes
I could grasp your hand
Let you feel my pulse
Drumming out words I refuse to speak
In a breath of honesty or foolhardy courage
I'll bare my soul to you
