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...
My brown luscious color is all I see
Society yelling at me "No that's not how it should be! Where's your fair skin? Where's your locks or hair"
My mind is telling me no one wants you that's how it'll always be
Your going to be alone that is what it seems
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...
yet its still in the workshop tho, kinda like it.. Here it goes:
"Do you know what it's like
To be always the beast
But in the end of the day
A refuge is what you seek.
A refuge to hide, a refuge to weap"
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...
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...
this invisible wall between us, pretending that any hole we make will connect us as one....
an illusion it is, as our ways have shifted and our perception has morphed ....
fading slowly the idealized laze flowing smoothly down the waterfall of broken dreams and platonic heroes...
So strong that made me knowing you so rad. but everything that I lived changed me to be bad. you left and I walked into the darkness. I felt alone and in distress. I had become an animal, a beast that lived like a criminal. I spend countless years in a cage. inside my...
and she said she was my drug "get that **** out of your veins" Every needle tells a story trust me I have a few and when I'm down I'm the dumps they just start to spew she sang "baby don't do it I want to be your drug just let me in I don't wanna keep tugging at your heart, I...
music and just sit
Usually on my back porch step, after dark when everyone else has already gone to bed
Just me, the night sky, and some really pretty stars
I would slip out that bottle of Jager I've had since God knows when
And the pot my cousin gave me
Mixing the alcohol...
.......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 alone at the end of your dime
someplace on the road between the here and the now
out of smokes and outa luck
barefaced to the carnival of night
the day passes slowly into the vastness of the past
hungry eyes puddled with traces of regret
for all the places you've been and...
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...
while the other wants to be grown
But both sides agree on the enjoyment of being alone
Good vs Evil inside my head
"Lay down in bed" vs "Fill yourself with lead"
There's an obsession with Evil wanting me dead
While Good is trying to get me fixed in the head
I feel like both...
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...
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...
my eyes closed to
The people around me are blind aren't you supposed to , run from the darkness but they stare me in the face .
Mistaking good deeds for me being a good guy only proves their ignorance to the oxymoron standing before them.
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...
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.
and that thought is you. A little scared and a little shook a little nervous when I see you look at me.. when I see you look at me. Oh girl will you always stay? I feel so close but you're far away this is a true love no fifty shades of gray so girl will you stay?
I can't tell but I do know this. when I first laid eyes know you I knew I could be who I really am. for the brief moment of my life I had found the peace I long searched for. you had me lost in your beauty. your beautiful blond hair that makes me believe that it was...
His therapist told him make two lists. Bad effects of being addicted to you: I fall in a hole: I say I can quit but I always relapse: I am tired and I just wand to die: I get weaker: I loose my spirit and my strength: I just can't saying do as I won't. I am just...
and recreating it as a piece of art being recycled by time and use, life chooses its own way moved by passions and adrenaline
How wise and essential mind is in this journey?
Are choices meant to be born in heart or mind?
what if heart chooses and mind is in disagreement?
The windows of her home had long ago broken,
The shattered pieces lost to the wind
Cold and desolate, she cowers
And then the rain stops,
The wind stops,
The storm stops
She looks, then, and sees
The pelting rain,
The whipping wind,
And the raging storm does lie...
so hard to explain
down here in the rain pretending He is vain
Where should He go what should he do...no matter what happens he still thinks of you.
Somewhere in the dessert where plants tend to die, he handles a flower, pretending to fly.
Faraway lands expecting arrivals of...
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...
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.
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...
something pushing me to my edge
Live a river craving to merge with ocean
Running incessantly looking for destination
But what is beyond destination
Beyond all the realms lies love a never solving mystery
poets will come and go but mystery will continue
..........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...
I need to know where to go time is moving to fast don't know how many tics I have to go. I need to know where to stay I need to am I alive today? I need to what to do for I am lost and alone and if you called I'd answer the phone they feel you in their heart and they hear your...
as black as the night , with an eye that's just daring you to fight and get blown to the next year .
Everything that's loud quiets down whenever they're here
Family disputes I'm always caught up in one everyday , I so many different cops I can tell the difference in one who...
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...
very fine housein which these lighted objects moveDid they want to venture out?From the front gate to the storeto the workplace and backto an interesting thing where people madesome noiseLook at the moon rising above the oceanLook at your handsanimated particles of dust.
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...
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...
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'm a soldier because my life is a war
It'll leave you ****** up but you can take a tour
Emotions frozen so I'll never hurt like before
I'll never know why Ive been someone to adore
Being emotionless isn't cool, it's bad
I don't even know how to take the few...
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...
this inner voice fear
provoking these tears
Neglecting her space
of laughter and grace
shadowing her face from liberty.
What is it out there, so tempting to wear?
What is it in here... that she expects to tear?
The Sun is still shining, no matter whats coming
The sky is...
