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'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
this I know.
I wish to express it all, and just let it flow.
will it work out, I'll never know. day by day I sit back and wonder.
but every day I ponder, a new peace I do receive.
almost as a daily reprieve, I can see.
like I was blind and now I am enlightened.
this world can...
cold and uncaring skeleton.
its evil thoughtless smile a reproach to all that is good.
you have the cake and i have lost the sideshow recipe.
wicked tree branches will hold for a bit, narcissistic roots and clay steadfast separate us from oblivion.
Old man winter walks ahead...
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...
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...
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...
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...
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,
the leaves to turn to gold
I wondered why some things must end
I wonder where the summer goes
I thought about that butterfly
The amazing sights her journey revealed
I pondered if in she planned ahead
For the adventures still concealed
Of friendships made and sometimes ended...
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...
she used to be my girl,
she is as beautiful as a rose,
and as dangerous as a gun,
but she is loved by the world,
knee down and look up,
the is no more room in this place,
it's on fire with no escape,
just wait till you die in peace,
this world is so lonely,
with out a...
year and ten months
Blood and tears run dry like this California drought
Though my heart has never given up
The gravity of your arms that pulled me in
Without hesitation, without doubt
Radiant blue eyes that once waited for me to return home
A smile that lit up my...
so this is my description that I wrote:
Is tinder a dating site or a model database, some space for presenting?
Nobody is making the first step, not gonna start talking about texting back. It could be that it's only happening to me. But isn't this how most girls nowadays are...
and it tears us apart
If only you didn't have this fragile balloon heart
The wind takes it so easily, you didn't want to fall in love
After they left, you let your balloon heart float off up above
But someone else is out there, heart torn in two
Look very closely, they...
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...
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...
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...

Poets have that special "gift" given to them by whatever you may call it...God, life, destiny, etc... which makes me admire and respect them as I do... they are blessed I say, to be able to put...
the telltale signs of a man with a story. The pain he must have felt, but instead of crying out, he stood there, drinking his remedy in silence and fake tranquility. Unspoken.
Anguish in isolation, screaming out in painful sorrow. He begs for mercy, on the daily, to the...

Because I matter.

for a year am I crushing or obsessing that's not quite clear , but one fact remains the first time I heard her name it became a tattoo on my brain .

I’m really trying to love you
And take you out of your despair
You don’t respond to any comfort
Yours is a heart with no one there
I think you gave up years ago
A little child discarded in the past
Though you gave them your love deeply
They always left, it didn’t last...
like a dream,wait,she entered,like a vision,wait,she entered,like a lingering lightening bolt,striking through the gray doldrums,of our everyday realities,she entered,like a dream…I approached,and spoke,to pupils larger than a lunar eclipse,her eyes darted,as wild eyed as...
words he wrote
His dad sat at the table
With a lump in his throat
The letter was stainedWith blood mixed with sand
It was a letterFrom their son in a far off land
The letter said, Mom the pain I cannot stand
From the shrapnel that ripped though this young man
I feel the...
I had a dream I was alone.
Lived my life as strong as Samson
Until this horror shook my bones.
I live my life
stuck in a nightmare
A nightmare cruelly cold and true
Polar sights bewitch my feelings
Every compass leads to you.
A man I've met
All but twice.
Soul of regret
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...
.......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...
and coffee talks.
for sun lit afternoon boardwalks.
for thoughtful discussions and an argument or two.
someone to talk to when the day is through.
a friend to remember a birthday or wedding.
a friend to help with moving or in need.
a friend is a thing to be indeed
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.
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...
and also it's more of a story I suppose
The other day you said I always have interesting stories
When I talked about my family and described a member as crazy
You said I seem to use that word describe every one of them
And if only you knew
I say crazy and tell you the...
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 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...
