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
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 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
I cannot quite explain this excruciating, earthly pain. I can't take this life no more. From the start, I've lost the war. Lovely Grim, please liberate me from this life of agony"
This is a repost of a poem I wrote a while ago. I got some positive feedback on it, so maybe it'll...
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...
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...
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...
steady on my roof
its pattern on the slate walkway is a confusion of circles
birds continue to sing
cars continue to speed by
it is only i that has ground to a halt by this
rainy season isnt supposed to be here yet
so why have you clogged my day
with your wet...
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 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.
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...
eyes don't shine as they did, as every inch curdles in time
With each wrinkle and tear
Comes the relief of
Sprawling legs and arms
reaching for soil, or
Leave it to the crackle of fire
heavy, hot as a bag full of suns
Feed the flame its final course and watch the last lick of...
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...
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...
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...
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?
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?
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...
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...
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...
.......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...
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...
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...
..........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...
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...
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...
wear purpleWith a red hat which doesn't go, and doesn't suit me.And I shall sit down on the pavement when I'm tiredAnd gobble up samples in shops and press alarm bellsAnd run my stick along the public railingsAnd make up for the sobriety of my youth.I shall go out in my slippers...
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...
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 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...
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...
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...
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...
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"
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.
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 you worry if you're worth it
Throwing curses to the person that helped bring you to this earth
You keep it bottled up til someone judges or attacks then all your rage hits the surface
Once the calm is here and the storm is gone, you're back wondering your purpose
