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...
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...
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...
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...
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...
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...
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...
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 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...
as this is a work in progress:

He is poise and authority
I arch sinuously, leopardesque

His staying hand and hard eyes call me to still, pause for me...

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

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...
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 sprinkled him with dust
And up he flew
To his heart's content
He flew past mermaids
Past pirate ships
And treasure coves
A lost boy
Looking for a home
But not quite staying
I glittered him with gold
Shimmered him with amber
Hoping and praying
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...
you are just a memory and I'm forgetting you, Im standing here on this edge trying to jump, but I can't and probably won't, I'm just sad that I will forget about my love for you, life has separated us and now I must pretend to just be happy, *whispers* with out you
..........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...
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...

Throw me a line and I'll sew you new clothes,
send me flowers and I'll make you perfume.
Tell me your fears and I'll hold you so you don't feel alone,
tell me your dreams and I'll do what I can to make them happen.
Kick dirt in my face and I'll grow roses in my...
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...

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 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...
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...
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...
.......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...
You demand for more
Throwing fits as you beat your breast
Spineless swine hiding behind a lady's skirt
The slap of your insults echoes in the halls
She slaps back to shut you up
You only yell over her, punching her down with words
She gave you clothes and a job with money...
front of me
the eyes can be a vision to soul that seems to be the greed
that loves to keep all of the things
that you or i or we would think
and pulls at all the strings that my old heart
just cant seem to embrace
that makes me second guess my thoughts
emotions came and...

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.
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...
a sight that can make a super nova seem no more than turning a light bulb on with your hand. Worlds formed by words, intertwined like forestry, rooted deeply in my soul. Details divide then unfold amongst themselves like trees, punctuation marks grow at the ends of fully...
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...
