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...

Or pick random fights
I'll more likely buy you roses
And when you have bad dreams I'll be there to turn on the lights
I'll hold you close and never let go
I can turn a phrase and leave you speechless
I can weave a tapestry of words from my heart that will never slow

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,

Billowing smoke shadows the horizon,
as the bodies burn at my tired feet
The lifeless all around
as I walk this weary road
gasping for a breath
as the smoke engulfs my soul
Nowhere to turn
nowhere to run
nowhere to hide
The fire burns so hot
like a dancing, fiery...
break the glass,
ourselves from ourselves,
with our soul's mannequins,
and inhale the true essence of ourselves...
I see you,
but I don't see you,
only the skin stretched across your bones,
is visible to the naked eyes,
and if the eyes are windows...
Happiness got her
But when the rain fell from the sky
She starts to cry
Sadness got her
The rain faded
Something stopped the storm
A rainbow began to form
And it makes her glad
To know that
You don't always feel bad
The situation will change
I awoke, feeling a body against mine...
Is this a dream I thought... no...
Misty eyed I felt the body push from behind
My eyes burst open... No...
My body tensed and my skin rippled with fear
A hand reached across my chest
I held my breathe and shed a single tear
I tell her that she needs it,
she tells me I must be blind,
that her heart's breaking but I can't see it...
She was just at the bar drinking beers,
now she's in bed crying tears,
I tell her beers and tears are dehydrating,
she says she doesn't know why we're still dating…
Title: You Forgot About Me
There I lay, comfortably on my broken bed, waiting for your return.
My dear, where are you?
Without you, I've become a vexed void.
Pessimism gripped onto an endless eternity.
I honestly hate having...
.......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...
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...
akaShaun.. Enjoy and leave feedback ~
Sitting here in deep thought
Depressed and thinking about the last battle I fought
My mind.. So twisted and dark..
But trying to silence it is like trying to drown a shark
I wish the pain could be taken away
I guess I'll just keep praying...
when she left me,
mad as she was when she left,
but it's the only way she knows how leave me,
I know the type,
but so broken inside.
I am attracted to her intensity,
that's a part of her insanity,
no even flow,
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.
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...
the concrete imagery of stone
That blocks every ephemeral sight
When we can speak of life's impermanence
'' I loved someone
And she has gone away"
If you can't see the flower
Wither and stalk away
Across the halls of time,
Know its fragrance exists in a...
yet so fake
sometimes I think I am the master of you but you prove me wrong
I dont believe in you yet you plant your seed inside me and grow ever so green and lustrous
But I don't believe in you how can you be inside me consuming my thoughts eating my emotions and poising my...
and a chill wind starts
but the light that warms my soul comes from her eyes
enticed out of sleeping memory by
this falling shaft of sunlight in my backyard
as i rake some spilled leaves
a lifetimes of summers memories rushing back to greet
with their own legends their own grand...
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...
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...
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...
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.
men the same
Snuffing out the free and wild in attempt to make them tame
The "weird" ones stand out as an eyesore for us all
So we bite and curse and spit at them in attempt to force them dull
There are those that succeed high into the chain of wicked deed
Commanding those below...

when the people are gone and the lights are turned off

Your light has shone down
Blazing with colour
Filling my heart and soul
Your beauty radiating out for all to see
Your love given whole heartily
Swamping my body with feelings of desire
Giving me comfort when I am lonely
Sharing your soul as I share mine with you
So keep your...
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...
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...
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...
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...
beauty through the autumn leaves
sets the heart ablaze with reminiscence and wishes
the day filled with brilliant color and life
makes my heart as carefree and light as joy itself
the crisp air with its winters foretaste
the autumn afternoon gives me wanderlust

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...

I find my eyes turn to you
And when your beauty is turned away,
I find courage to look then too
And with a quick glance you catch me,
And you laugh as you do
For that you see past my shyness,
For this I love you, that is true.
you care, go figure.
Depression seems so very clever
Traps you and holds you down
But makes you so good at hiding frowns
Doesn't have to be a reason
Your mood is always changing like the seasons
Only way to end the suffer
Is to admit that depression is tuffer
as this Is a serious topic ~
This evil society
Leaving children, teens and even adults with anxiety
Worried and afraid to be themselves
Forced to believe happiness is only through wealth
Media making it seem that only skinny girls are pretty
But you can ignore that, love...
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...
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...
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...
your palms sliding on my skin
The warmth grows in each place
The pores underneath arch
Longering for your touch to be prolonged
Gently rubbing here and there my body responds in aching ways
Longing to contour and form around your frame
Your fingers travel up my neck and to my...

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...
my brothers room is loud
so i walk downstairs and outside
to the garage
and stand silent in the bitterness of winter
angry that i cannot have loud music
angry that i am not my brother
my heart thunders in my chest as i read the written phrase
this was madness in its infancy
a family member.
I know your body is gone
But not your spirit.
Your laugh? I still hear it
I'll never forget you
Soon enough, I'll be in heaven too
Ill think about you every day
Will tears come? They may..
But instead of mourning your death
And thinking about how you left
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...
