but I'm writing a poem for and about my father. It's been about since I've been able to write. I read the first draft on Father's Day and he was choked up (hard to do) and mom was in tears. Score one for homemade gifts. It was ok at the time, good to them, but it needs needs...
I BEG YOUR PARDONDid the dawns embracing breath fallGentle on Herberts young and pallid brow?Did she, his trembling lips, appease withTender kiss and whisper, calm?Did his young, drained, face a final smile,Or blush, reveal to her caressThat...
the night's cloakTo dance in the pouring rain.She confesses all his deepest sins;With mind wide open to absorb pain.Turning, another leaf, like fiery blush;Spreading, the moon of another world.Only yesterday, footprints stirred sparkling dustTo stretch your white fabric; until...
be a real girl
Who's free from those things
I wanna make choices
Not be told what to do
Cause now I don't have a voice
To stand up to you.
I'll take what you give
But I'll never need it
I'm just clay in your hands...
Kill the dark, kid, don't feed it....
Do the things you have to do and do it faithfully.Consecrate the commonplace wherever you may be. Someone may be influenced by what you say or do.Somebody may learn a lesson just by watching you.Nothing's insignificant in day to day affairs: the trifling incidents of life,the...
If i could you know i would set your soul free,
there's no point in hanging on
if the fires out then may be i should be gone,
it will be ok
just wait and see , one day when we are both free
waiting for that illusive day
when all our fears are so far away
my heart cry's for...
He aimed them at me with such expertise...And with each new word I was brought to my knees.The tears started falling in a flood of disbelief...At how things could be said and cause such grief.Where was the tenderness of yesterday?My skies were no longer sunny but a gloomy shade...
from walking with my wayward lover.
Curve of moon resting in our right hand, without cover.
Paused; at the portal of many seasons in sparkling gown
To shield the lamplight from wind and rain's showdown.
While emerald sisters dance and taunt my growing belly,
A City yet to be...
Though I've stumbled
a thousand times
off the hill
The humongous rock
keeps on rolling
a painful and vicious cycle
Wish I could be
Atlas of Greece
lift this heavy rock
I want to be completely free...
To think for an entire day about no one but me.
To get lost in pink cotton candy clouds...
To live my life boldly and out loud.
I want to experience never-ending laughter...
To find my happily-ever-after.
To spin like Maria in a meadow so...
Open the flood gates of Heaven
although I fight fire with fire
only a great flood would dampen this desire
The mountains tremble
and the earth crumbles
as I make a decision
no longer to remain humble
Let it rain , let it rain
for no longer , will this fire contain
Sing my soul...
When will I stop
Trying to fill my core?
A gap exists in every life.
What do you lack?
What causes you strife?
Will it ever make you change your track?
I've stayed the course
For many years.
Honest love has kept me here,
Not the common fears.
I wonder if a time...
When reality and dreams collide it's not always for the best...
Sometimes the images you're left with cause incredible unrest.
Because dreams aren't always pleasant or end in happily-ever-afters...
Sometimes they are heartbreaking...gut wrenching...and devoid of any laughter...
I know I'm not great at writing:/ here's a short poem I wrote today.
Far, far away
Please don't try to follow me
I won't be back someday
Hurry now, go play
Before it's time for your moving day
Crosses the borderline for you,my soul-mate.
All day on my mind ,you are my soul-mate.
Smell flower,breath fresh air for you,my soul mate.
All day on my mind,you are my soul-mate.
Forget the height n task,i jump for you,my soul-mate.
All day on my mind,you are my soul-mate...
To swing from a chandelier of stars.
Although misunderstood from conception,
Alive as a pink poppy with all my scars!
A wildflower doesn't grow in every garden.
Creation of prose, due to a pardon.
Soul is not about if words rhyme;
My blooms kiss the heavens...
my cheek and hands pressed against my
Soul for the Taking, Heart, Breaking
There's no cure for this now, they say that,
Time is of the essence, and essence I'm sure is
Crucial for the heartbreak salvation, A cure for the
Common cold that you once told me
Could be helped with a...
me like twin regrets
her face was full of the dark hours
full of graveyards of her truths once held so high
now she stumbles in the hasty shadows of
storms riding the coastal highway
in the company of men who had
seen brighter days of their own
they break off a piece of stale...
What shall I ask of the New Year that is dawning ? What shall I hope as I face the new day? What shall I ask on the very first morning ? What shall I wish,and for what should I pray?Ask for an eye that is open to beauty.Ask for faith that no bludgeon can break.Ask for the...
and think you see
There is much more inside to show
Most has been the surface of me
Please understand this truth
My friendship when fully yours
Has a unique length of term
A bond that defiantly endures
Before you choose to take me on
And delve into my mind
Please take a...
moment I'm laughing
The next I'll be dead
Darling don't tell me
I'm perfect in your eyes
Cause I know the truth
And I'm rotting inside
Someone says that they love me
Someone says that they're here
But why the hell am I
Still alone and in fear?
The broken prices of
The road I...
She often looks like all is well
Smiles and laughter do tell
Not a soul would ever feel her
No one can sense her heart stir
Or see her deep thoughts blur
All they know is she is so strong
Clueless to what really goes wrong
She stands on the edge, glancing down
When sleep eludes my life.
I need your words, make me laugh,
Cut the blackness with a knife.
So many say that they don't sleep,
But seldom is it true.
Frozen clock beside me now,
It flies when I'm with you.
I wish I could just go to sleep,
And wake up in the light.
not for the joy
but for the pain. Just because the bee
stings doesn't mean I am not drawn
to play with it. 17 years with a man,
and each day he wakes up to a different
woman. Yet, you believe you know me.
Know all about my heart and have mapped
my mind...it's wonderfully...
A battle with depression,
a fight she cannot win.
no matter how strong she is,
she thinks she'll give in.
she smiles like she means it,
but her smile is fake.
each night she goes to sleep,
hoping she doesn't wake.
she doesn't know how she does it,
yet each day she makes it...
Rich with desire and passion, bleeds
To fill the coffer of my soul;
Her value, all this wealth, exceeds...
But I will not live beyond my means,
Her fondness I can cover;
I'd rather keep her as a friend...
Than lose her as a lover.
Making me feel normal.
Intercepting my needs.
Never judging my thoughts.
Always on the same page.
Wrestling with the same cravings.
Each day is more fun.
Open and always searching.
Fishing to find a release.
Yellow cup of joy daily.
One of many connections...

alone and cold
Wanting the warmth of the sisterhood.
My restless heart climbing the hill,
Breaking the silence of brotherhood:
"You are all the same-glass stones."
Shattering the peace where love stood.
Do I want you up on that wall?
Not at the price of 555 a day.
Am I not your...
Can you imagine not knowing your left from your right like a baby ?
To be lost ,
Can you imagine not knowing up from down ?
To be lost ,

We Hunted prey ,made cloth for us.
But we forget to live on the earth.
We destroyed forest,built home for us.
But we forget to live on the Earth.
We observed Birds,developed an Aeroplane.
But we forget to live on the Earth.
We looked Sunrise,invented a Bulb.
But we forget to live...
I don't think you realize just how much I truly care...
Or why I continue to lay my heart bare.
To put all of my emotions into words you can understand...
Would definitely convince you that I'm your #1 fan.
These emotions I feel for you are so incredibly strong...
Walking slowly across the wet grass
the sun shines , but it doesn't last
on the horizon I see a place
where we made love some where in space
fields of green grass , fields of gold
where we made love that was never told
It was our secret, our secret place
where we would disappear...
body lays next to you
extended in the sun with a spring smile that
tastes of tender green. Your persistent garden
of love, tended with dirty adoration and sweaty
bliss, resonates from her skin. A primal yearning
to take seed and press it into moist ground. Flood
I am a wave.
For we, are but bodies
Of messages from brave
Sparkling dust of pollination.
From darkness, inner moon shines!
I am black panther of hunt;
I am black bear with a spark;
In this existence, creature of grunt!
Do you treat sister wolf like God?
Does she not wake...
The icy blast that sends me to
A stark and barren wilderness;
And yet, with noise, my mind is plagued
A commotion of colliding thoughts
That taunt as it ruminates
The constant, senseless chattering.
I fear the closing of her page
That her ink might cease to...
clouds gather to sprinkle
Sunshine's tears in the green hanky
Where the sun hangs on the crinkle.
She ran inside, to the small cottage
Leaving splashes on marble flooring.
Small pitter-patters of love's wattage.
Her hood removed, henna cascades
Like silk, down her bare...
struggle, and run
That's what I do
All the time
Never backdown, cant lose, keep calm and moving on
What I've been fighting for?
What it this?
What the purpose of this?
Why I can keep on living by doing this?
When this gonna end?
Who I'm against...
trapped without excuse.
sometimes we thought a way out, in the end it just make it worse.

Can you here the drum?
Can you feel the heat?
The tender glow,
Iridescence of a beautiful soul.
The pounding beat,
A heart flutter like the beat of wing.
The radiating warmth
A unity of a perfect love.
That's the way you make me feel.
so many ways.
The answer isn't simple
Even though I've tried.
It's a question I've asked myself time after time.
I've tried to explain,
I try to keep my answers plain.
What I need is support and love at this time.
Not judgmental pushing
And warnings to get out in time.

I will not always hide
Clenching my jaw
I can't let you through

Walls for a reason
They give me protection
When the coldest of seasons
I cannot change
This way that I cope
When my mind has...

Grey skies heralded the radiant broadcast.
He watched the mascara of truth
Run from looming clouds in her eyes.
Their lungs filled with their torrid history.
A sage wind tousled roots with hearts
Weaving a white ribbon through two spirits.
Happy 47th Birthday to me...
That sure is a *lot* of candles I see.
I'm thinking I should start counting the years by five's or ten's...
Or maybe I could subtract some years and simply pretend?
I then realize that's the last thing I want to do...
Because I'm proud of what I've...
found in this uncaged creature,
But the mystery of bone
Buried in dust; shall gleam
When teardrops become a stream.
Release, release and sail
To the corners of your smile
Where joy stretches a mile.
Pure spirit lives in the form
Of the truest horn;
