for you to journey home.
Now look down on me and smile.
I want to make you so proud of me
But I'll need help for little while
My life now is changing every day.
As I work to be a better man.
I follow the paths you've paved for me
And I'm doing the best I can.
Life can be hard...
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...
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...
But she drove across country.
Just developed though she studies university.
I doubt she is innocent, as she would assert.
Treating men like dirt, & “meet all sorts” within her work.
Yet I suspect she wants respect, when she sets the pattern of neglect.
in all the frowns
and in the cries
I am afraid that one day it will escape
forsed into a prison of words
a boy changed into a man
heartless and cold
evil and hard to control
a man who is as lifeless
as he is loveless
with a grin in his face
and two fingers up
he says f...
About how bad I want to slit my own throat
Well not exactly but you get the gist
Maybe that's why I wake up pissed
Knowing I'm still breathing
Be happy? Keep dreaming
Dark n depressed
Angry n obsessed with death
Hoping next time I go to sleep, it's my last...
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...
so longed for
its crisp sunlight such deep reflection of joy
its warm breeze so like a gentle kiss from a lover
so full of promise and possibility
this spring day so long dreamed of in the winter
what laughter this day holds
what adventures with friends
what beautiful moment...
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...

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'm a devil in my head
but still an angel in my faith
i am everything in nothing
and yet something very bright
casting my own heartless shadows
with a blinding ever light
i'm confused and yet
bewildered with the man that i can be
yet the hatred is a seething
pain I can't seem to shake
It gets worse and worse as the night goes by
sometimes it hurts so much I just want to cry
I’m exhausted, weak
it wont let me sleep
no matter how hard I try
I’m often left sitting there, wondering why
It’s almost morning, and i’m still...
why did I thought death was the answer?
why did I pray for God to destroy this world?
thinking death was the answer.
well my lonly and pathetic heart
(must be to ugly and broken for any one to hold)
he wanted to stop.
my body was giving up.
my strength was drowning.
When you're playing pretend
Make the right moves
Say all your lines
You know you're not fine
You ask yourself if
They know it too
Well sadly sweetheart
They never knew you
You played the part
The world wrote the script
A talent like that
Is a curse...
to hug and protect
but I am the only reject
why dose fate chose to humiliate
why does it makes me feel pain
how come my Destiny is only death.
as it seems to be the only answer
I see couples in love
my heart aches to this sight
I am alone 14 days of solitude
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.
that was taught
to be feared. It brings shame, humiliation
upon our glorious name.
We’ll be conformed
and qualities of the looser.
And success will fall
through our fingers.
How could failure help us flourish?
As we look down our noses
in disapproval of...
A thought pattern
I observe you ascend toward the rings of Saturn
A crystal sphere
Fate has forced my hand
A shadow cast over the promised land
A child lies wounded
Down the corridoors of time
As I gather up blossoms...
.......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...
with beauty's decay
she gives silent flowers of the mind to the cold wind
that transports them like dreams into the distant landscape
she gives her soft heart
to the falling snow
which transpires like a whisper flowing down to melt on soft ground
like a passage of the nights...
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...
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...
to hate and anger
being falling into a pit of darkness
on moment you are watching tv the next you see blood in your body
it is a cycle that has no end
light is turned into darkness
love into pain and drought
hate into self loathe
there is no escape.
barely hear the holy sermon.
Rowdy kids in uniform fooling around,
calling each other names,
hitting each other where it hurts.
they came here together
and occupy the intimate space
of one another.
Contrary to the idle men
sitting with legs crossed,
head on their wobbly...
I want you. I'm not alive if your not here with me. I go crazy when I don't see or hear from you. I know that I'm strung out, but everything is so hazy. My friends gives me a million reasons why to give you up, but I just don't care. I can't imagine life without you. You tell me...
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 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,
a smile so decorated with sweet sunshine of summer day
a carefree moment of pure abandon
where the world seemed endless
where possibility boundless
seems so far away from the bed you lay in
its night in this moment of your remembering
but you can still feel the...
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...
ablaze with the glory of being in love

dances with his future in the balance so precarious

better to be relaxed and let it all flow whichever way
cause nothing matters much but 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...
wish i could hear someone say to me one day...
How are you? she said
tell me how you are baby don't you know i'm yours
tell me how you are let my touch bring back your smile
How are you? She said as i looked down instead.
won't you teach me how to trust
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...
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.
mind is useless
he won't tell.
I hear a giggle deep inside,
is it my soul dancing 'round
or yet another broken memory?
Have I seen my own eyes
for who they really are,
Have I ever talked so true
that my voice starts to tremble?
Is there a man in this world
who can say...
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...
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...
