A Recipe For Loving Change
Start with Self.
I was fat, now I’m perfect.
I had dry skin, now I’m perfect.
I had nerve damage, now I’m perfect.
I am human, but I’m perfect just the way I am.
What change? My mind.
and say what you think of it, constructive criticism, etc.?
There’s so much grey area
To be found
Commonly as black and white
They say the world turns on its tracks
Without a sound
Doesn’t need to, doesn’t think of...
Memories in yellows and blues
Bathe us in their soothing hues.
Tapping on windows of our mind.
Like soft rain winter leaves behind.
Those traffic lights within my head
Danger, heartbreak ahead.
Green meadows of promises and peace
We closed our eyes
And souls did...
Though we have never met.
I see your face in each sunset.
Your words touch me
Like gentle breeze.
The sunlight filtered through the trees
Is your warm embrace.
There is no trace of doubt.
My heart has just found out.
Your smile lights skies above.
I feel your eyes
write away my sorrow even in my youth.
Im a stanger to myself the pills they dull
my pain emotions sore there gone again.
I'm not me anymore just a stranger not friend.
a monster hiding deep within.
I begging i am pleading help me now.
I would try but i don't know how.
and tell me what you think, leave constructive criticism, etc.?
My frenemy follows me everywhere
(Although I'll admit, at first,
I did not notice their being there).
I skipped around, while in the shadows they lurked
Documenting and taking care
To remember the...
L O V E U N C O N D I T I O N A L + = Love unconditional - all senses are employed Your touch - your scent - your voice - your lovliness My heart responds - my heart is overjoyed Together we're a hand in glovliness ! Love unconditional - such love with such...
and share poetry with, talk about it, have fun with it. Well i don't know if anyone would just want to share their poetry without reading some of my poetry so here's my latest one (no title as of yet):
Basking in the shadows
cast down on me by
dim yellow light
A butterfly called love
That lives inside the soul
Where her music of silence plays
Aching in mystical ways
In violet arrays
Of summers lost
Interred by frost.
Lonely in eternal slumber
As our past dreams will encumber
- Just one touch of her lips
Lost in total eclipse...
and all they do is stare
I see a sea of faces so different and so rare
I see a sea of faces none of them I know
I see a sea of faces each day I watch then grow
I saw a sea of faces now each have turned away
I saw a sea of faces I no longer see all day
It stretched across my flesh
It sank into my depths,
And touched my heart setting it afire,
The sun caressed my face and slipped it's warmth around my waist,
I did not struggle,
I invited the heat within,
So it reached and reached until finally,
One of young ones on their bikes racing from their homes once their homework is half-done and taking off into the nights sky
Are you in denial?
Abusing the weak ones
The fat and the ugly
Do you hold onto your anger like it was...
When stars fell
On a lonely street.
Were destined to meet
To defrost frozen hearts.
Where stardust covered love
When they trembled
In their bed.
And passion travelled
from their heart
To way below.
What candlelight dance
Could match the glow...
You beautiful sun
That frees the trees
From winter embrace
Enabling flowers to show their face.
You revive lonely spires
And light exquisite fires
Of sunsets high.
That dress of blue
That you shine through
We can call the sky.
And as she stood solo
In meadow still
You lit her...
The brightest orb.
That solar daub
Glimmering in silver shape.
Dancing on ocean's shoulder.
Watching the grand,
Lighting the blue canvas to view.
That gallery of the skies.
New pastels with each sunrise.
Tomorrow we'll wake
Colors withered . . . set to fly
Spill from oaks of autumn skies.
Reds and russets spoiled brown
Now puddle on the forest ground.
Yet rising high for all to see
Their nakedness stood certainty
The skeletons that once bore leaves
A sacrifice amongst the tree's.
Their bony fingers...
are things you should fear
More than the monsters
That hide under your bed
Or maybe your closet
Things worse than the wolf
Howling at a full moon
Worse than a thug with fangs could dream to be
Oh yes there are things you should
What are these things you ask my dear?
Soul steady sleeping,
Mind wide awake.
Why'd God leave me here to rot in pain that chokes the life out of me?
Lord knows, I want His eyes, just so i could see.
See how this life could really turn out to be.
My world hasn't alwayd been full of glitter & gold.
More like dark...
Love will come again.
Like softest summer rain
On sleeping fields of flowers.
Fragrant and new.
Sunlit and blue.
She leaves her ivory towers
And calls my name
On sweetest birdsong breeze.
Through the trees.
Time can't tame.
brush my arms up against yours.
I'm a fiend.
Your touch satisfies my need for only a moment.
I'm always searching for more.
In bed, although asleep, my legs intertwine yours.
And if you dear move away my hand will find your back.
Wrestling in the backyard is breath taking...
and tell me what you think, leave constructive criticism, etc.?
The faceless little man at the end of the hall:
The faceless little man at the end of the hall
Is not much for conversation.
He looks blankly without eyes
Much deeper than examination
And without much thought or...

Summer sleeps like Sunday
remembered more splendid

even in full fury
Yam colored Blackfoot
River Pirates unafraid of
waterfalls and water bugs
timeless as tragedy
Hillbillies hell bent
in expensive cars
in short sober snaps
As the rest drifts by...
I can almost feel the fear I see in her eyes
as she describes the way he makes her feel
She says he's sweet to her
Was that a tremor in her voice?
She says he calls her beautiful
Yeah, I hear the worry between every word
She says he is going to break her heart
I don't know...
But she could be any one of them
The lover now back at home
The lover we shared briefly, painfully and awkwardly
The lover that keeps me from diving beneath the surface
And here I am stuck with a tank on my back and a mask on my face by the cool water waiting for a...
I never wrote a poem before so I hope everyone likes it...I sure hope I did a fine job....and hope I'm not making a fool of myself....but these are my feelings down deep in my heart....Here goes nothing...
My poem is called....
Where all is quiet and flowers bloom.
The sound of a pin drop reflects on the moon
And the sun dances around its tomb.
There is a beautiful moment in an empty space
Where there is no need for weapons or mace.
Explore all over and come back to bace,
Empty in essence, there...
Those lines that serve to hold you in
A noble spirits wrinkled skin
Engraved a dignity so deeply sunk in
Upon the cover wearing thin.
Emotion in motion of a thousand yesturday's
Gently crinkle upon the page
So novel is this coming of age
A distinguished script upon the stage...
Because of you.
My life has been worthwhile.
This wounded heart just flew
Your sun returned my smile.
An ocean sky turned blue
All stars burn bright with fire
Your sweet love so true
Has sent angelic choir.
With lightning in my veins.
to hold out til this harsh moment in time evaporates.
Until my breathing evens out again.
Until I can smile freely without hurting the corners of my mouth.
I employ every piece of me to hold out til the suffocation ceases.
This thing eating at me is laughing.
The sound it makes...
The house stood still
Up on the hill
For many years and more
Through all the rain
The clouds contain
It weathered every storm
And even when the sun
Fell beyond the mountains
And days had turned to night
The house stood still
Upon the hill
The only house in sight
When all the...
I find myself at ease
Free from others judgment, hides the pain that no one sees
The life I had, has been taken, torn from the pages of time
Although I know the suspect, she got away with her crime
A family has been ripped apart, scattered like leaves in Fall
Not a single shred...
In sea of loneliness, your eyes draw me in close
My nightmares disappear, as my attraction grows
More and more I want to see you and listen to your soul
Your kiss is like a key in my life, Can you make me whole?
I reach out to hold you and I will never loosen my grip...
My eyes see through the pain and greed of this society
Everything I see in you is so perfect and real, Can it be?
Longing to be next to you forever, is a feeling I can't speak
I still get butterflies when you says my name, knees weak...
The time has come to say goodbye,
Leave all the memories we share behind.
The love I had was pure and true,
But you left me sad and blue.
Looking towards a brand new day,
Without my heart standing in the way.
unseen to all but me...
A darkness growing stronger,
that will not let me be...
That darkness, it's name, Depression,
consumes down to the core...
Pushes us to our limits,
til we can't take it anymore.
Once upon a time.
I love you,
Though I we have never meet officially,
Though we likely will never together be,
I love you.
Time and time again,
Through hardships you've seen me.
Through thick and thin,
time and time again.
I love you,
Though there is no way to run...
with the diamonds
of forgotten sun.
A devil moon
this sky has spun
with burning tapestry.
and are to be.
in the silence
Of a purple sea.
dancers of eternity,
of golden morning.
With twinkling eyes
Lonely as the wind I reach like a
Falling climber for you
Desperate pumping heart
waiting to hit the ground
Without a sound
I scream inside as nobody hears
Two souls as one I lay in the night
My gaze fixed on black
Where you once breathed close to me
Your eyes a beacon...
for myself. Weren't we a team? Weren't we different from the rest? I am so embarrassed. Embarrassed to have loved someone so childish. So selfish. So incredibly self-involved. People speak of warning signs. People tell me "you should have paid attention to the red flags". What...
Have you felt that softest touch
A silent sky
That says so much.
Candy floss pink streaked.
A kaleidoscope that leaked.
A child heaven as sunshine slept.
Some wild spectrum
As moonlight crept.
By the canyon of the sky
Between the stars
And you and I.
Naked as the moon...
"Invading Points Of Structured Light"
I can feel sound decomposing
and filling with a rotten substance
today I bled on a rose thorn
tomorrow I never remember
I've also heard the sound of death
for I need guidance
shattered sense of misgiving
the isolated hymn for peace
