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
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...
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;
refusing to speak to me
we sit in the bedroom
the tv goes unheard in the corner
softly whispering nonsense to itself
like a madman
she is sitting with her perfumes and paints
looking distantly into the mirror
i study her face from across the room...
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.
.......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...
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
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...
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...

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...
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...
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,
I'm everything you never had, oh I'm the good within the bad
I'm the mistakes you can never compromise
I'm the unfairness you'll never comprehend
I'm somewhere between your future and your past, I'm your own worst enemy
I'm your mind's worst Felony
I'm the one who'll...
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...
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...
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...
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...
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...
this is just a first draft. please comment opinions and help to make it better or just any recommendations, thankyou!
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
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...
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'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
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 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
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...
A thousand 'likes'. A thousand comments. A thousand tweets of the same breakfast while we marvel at coincidence.
Because I matter.

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.
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...
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,
Caressing my timid soul
The sweet scent of your breath
Sparks a fiery passion in my veins
While Mother Moon shines upon us
We consimate our love
A passionate love none could know
For you are my raven
And I am your doe
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...

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...
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...
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...
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...
