I swear, since seeing your face,
The whole world is fraud and fantasy.
The garden is bewildered as to what is leaf or blossom.
The distracted birds can't distinguish the birdseed...
"Your Heart and My Heart are Very, Very Old Friends"
Fear is the cheapest room in the house
I would like to see you living
In better conditions,
For your mother and my mother
Come on sweetheart,
lets adore one another, before there is
no more of you and me.
Sometimes I wonder, sweetest love, if you
Were a mere dream in a long winter night.
A dream of spring-days, and of golden light
Which sheds its rays upon a frozen...
If your heart holds a place for me, then say so,
Say if It's so, or say no, but tell me the Truth.
My Eyes So Soft
Don't surrender your loneliness so quickly
let it cut more deep.
Let it ferment and season you
as few human or even divine ingredients can.
Something missing in...
My heart will never seek another heart,
Or smell another flower, knowing You.
Your love has made heart’s field a desert waste;
No love other than Yours grows in that place...
Before you came things were just what they were:
the road precisely a road, the horizon fixed,
the limit of what could be seen,
a glass of wine was no more than a glass of wine...
I belong to no religionMy religion is LoveEvery heart is my temple~ Rumi
I want to run in the sun, I want to have fun with a gun, I want to go with the flow, I like the feel of the wind on my skin, blowing on trees while I'm naked I couldn't give a...

Shrapnel scars, like you just stumbled into
[okay, what's less bitter than isolation?]
Seclusion. And God, does it feel good.

Book to a hook, laugh out loud it's not the end of the world yet, I shine like a star in the night sky, nobody really likes me but they want to be me, cat in a hat, A B C, 1 2 3...
Dance in the moon light while I fade away, on the beach just relaxing having my dreams come to me, big fish, small fish, 1 fish, 2 fish, blue fish, red fish this is not a song...
I used to write poetry that strictly rhymed and flowed. I loved the lull of it when spoken. It appealed to my musical side.
I hated poetry that didn't rhyme, it just wasn't for me...
I still write a lot of novels, stories and other kinds of writing. I used to always write poetry. Every day. But I was very young and when I posted my poetry on sites like Booksie...
I call it bad poetry
sometimes it's just stacked lines
sometimes it's banal and trite
I break the academic rules
and write songs to be sung by fools
Maybe I don't...
It's been a very long time since I've written any poetry and it wasn't that great, in my opinion. The poem I'm about to share was written a good 5+ years ago. It was my last and...
I spent so long on YouTube last night just watching slam poetry, it's so amazing and I found a ton of poetry by Wyatt Kat Fleckenstein, Ollie Renee Schminkey and Joy Young. Life is...
I want that poetry streak I had before. I was able to write beautiful poetry, then I got raped and I lost it. It's been about 10 years and I can't come up with anything. ugh
Write poetry has helped me process a lot of my feelings that I tend to suppress, especially since I'm more of an introvert. One of my favorite poems I wrote so far about a guy I...

I read last Saturday in the
redwoods outside of Santa Cruz
and I was about 3/4's finished
when I heard a long high scream
and a quite attractive...
I don't normally post my poetry on here, but this one was too personal to share with my friends, and I had to show someone.
Elicited by music
I write poetry, yes this is true.
Here is one that is brand new!

I have been told that free writing is a joke, poetry has to rhyme. Absolute nonsense! I'm not going to limit my writing just because my thoughts don't rhyme. That completely...
I love to write song lyrics and poetry.
I write poetry a lot. It's my outlet. I deal with depression and writing helps me release the negative.
*Blood blurs my eyes.
My skin falls off.
I'm already dead.
I can't fix this...
I write poetry to deal with loneliness and insecurity and my poems, although simple, will put anyone in a deep pit of sucky ickyness.
I would like to share my poetry here..is this a good idea or bad ..is it still protected with my name on it?
I write poetry, this is true.

My favorites are limericks, I've written a few!
