a promise of pleasure
the stain of human gesture brought and sold
bleak for its beauties of the eye to behold
strained against the leash which holds it to the street
it too has dreams
wishes held close to the heart
spoken aloud only in whispers of the night
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...
To answer a few questions
Maybe give a few suggestions
What is it about my crush
That gives me such a rush
And even makes me blush?
What does it mean to love
Fly higher than a dove
And makes me think he's sent from above?
My crush is one handsome son of a gun
But pulling it out after stabbing me twice
Just leaving me there, bleeding out my life
Thing about pain is, it makes you feel alive
Even at your worst, it's what thrills you the most
Your body becomes a host to a mental parasite
Addicted to the pain, when love is always...
angry reminder they do shine.
marking minutes and hours of night,
while i lie with muscles tight.
tension running through my frame,
while echoing mind calls your name.
arms so empty to hold no more,
tear filled eyes and heart so sore.
the need to hold you my dear Beth,
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...
the one we call "Mr.Perfect." The one we're to blind to see doing anything Wrong but that's the same guy who cheats on us but we tend forgive and accept aplogizes that he takes for granted ... we love him to point where we start to cut the people who really matter off.. He...
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.
hand to the tiller
to find that brief moment
on the crest of a twenty foot breaking wave
as a nor'easter wilds the sea
when you glimpse it
in the stillness between heaven and earth
she hid in her bedroom
looking at a late fall paris passing rainstorm
and on the run down east...
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...
Remember to find strength in pain
Bodies with no souls is a mind with no thoughts
A shell of what you once were, caused by the walls of depression
An island of tears, surrounded by fear, untrusting of the unknown
Isolation, a curse, trapped in a great expanse of lost human...
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...

really want to know
I want to know you’re feelings
Open your heart and let them show
I want to know your let downs
I want to know your dreams
I want to know what makes you laugh
And what makes you come apart at the seams
Tell me who you wanted to be,
When you were just a...
halls of time washed by tides.
the hand of healing weilds the blade,
with deft incisions, memories fade.
screaming silence fills the ears,
as the child drowns in tears.
growing pains, and rods of steel,
bend his will, from realms surreal.
a crowded nothing, an empty mind...

its 3:00 am
her drowning eyes a tomb to your smile
she remembers the night you told her you would never leave her side
trapped by happenstance
In bleak and bitter cold.
Each one possessed a stick of wood
Or so the story?s told.
Their dying fire in need of logs
The first man held his back
For of the faces round the fire
He noticed one was black.
The next man looking ?cross the way
Saw one not...
herself to display the power of her beauty
and practiced in the art of visual seductions
she desires to be intoxicating
to move men to noble heights without saying a word
to seduce the hearts of men with just a smile
to be center stage in the brilliant light of adulation
the telltale signs of a man with a story. The pain he must’ve felt, but instead of crying out, he stood there, drinking his remedy in silence and tranquility. Unspoken.
Anguish in isolation, screaming out in painful sorrow. He begs for mercy, on the daily, to the remnants of...
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...
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...

while she lounges on the couch in a see-thru dress
smoking expensive french cigarettes
her dreadlocks spread round in the morning sunlight
but her sunglasses out of context in the small room
she is the definitive...
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...
through parched earth seep.
Bones of the past all neatly arrayed,
My futile scratchings all displayed.
Rended flesh once pink, now green,
All about this ghastly scene.
Nerves still arc in pains grim charge,
Life of agony in words writ large.
Lungs still gasp with labored breath...
and I the ethereal moon
whose gentle rays and sharpened rays flickered in gloom.
Your frightening flicks didn't scare me away,
for it took more than just a glare anyways.
Close yet far--- our bond would never scarred
even if this distance is just a mirage.
And on that very...
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...
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...
never to change, keep things the same!
believe the world is unfair!
when truth, it doesn't care.
open your mind to the truth of all life,
the meaningless toil, long suffering strife.
games of the mind, to help pass the time.
when asked how you are, merely say "fine...
and think of all the wars I had to fight
And pull from that negativity to make art
Poetic justice straight from my heart
Where should I start?
As my mind and my heart start drifting apart
I've become cold but more wise
But still considered silly for praying to the sky
for the promise of something better,
my arrogance and insolence and now I have neither.
if I could turn back time & had one more chance to right and correct my wrongs...
humble I'd be and do the right thing and say thank you with all my heart..
even though, we were done.
Just because you still have feelings?
Remember, I said mine were gone..
I understand your actions
you did it because you were hurt.
I'm sorry it wasn't my intention..
but I won't let you put me on alert.
Where we go from here, can only be told by time...
paths of life to come in to focus
sharper each decision.
roads not traveled fade from sight
as we forward race to final night.
dreams of places, people, and things
secret whispers, to choirs screams
rail against fate and struggle in vain.
none shall escape lifes burdensome...
your life for a reason, a season or a lifetime.
When you figure out which one it is,
you will know what to do for each person.
When someone is in your life for a REASON,
it is usually to meet a need you have expressed.
They have come to assist you through a difficulty;
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...
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...
trait 1 would be: he can make love all night
doctor, lawyer or CEO
everything successful is a go.
He is intense and masculine yet sensitive with me,
and my body brings him down to his knees.
after adding all the said things above,
let us not forget eternal love...
.......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...
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...
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...
