Honestly, I'm not really good at it. I mainly only write when I'm having really strong feelings toward something or someone. It's usually when I'm feeling down and hopeless, and...
monsters in my head singing an endless symphony of dread
There, in Bettendorf in the box room advented the florescence of young love with blonde flaxen hair and cute confident smiles penetrated new dimensions in the mind: love.
I didn't care for the grail,
I cherished drinking from it together with you...
I didn't care for the peak of Olympus,
I cherished holding your hand
Gazing eternally upon the...
A Fire from within
Leaves the strongest soul pleasantly scarred
It is within this fire that most ache
Ache for the flames, those orange sparks of difference
The blue tango...
I'll be the first to admit, my "poetry" is very elementary, due to the fact that I'm not overly educated and intelligent...but be that as it may, here is a sample:
you deserve all the cobweb dreams,
fairytale hopes, and explosive love
in the world, but i know that i
will never be the one
to give them to you.
you need notes that end with
XD when I write the words control me and I just write it's weird but hey normal is boring
I write poems, I do it when I'm sad or when a touching idea strikes me.I write stories too.
Slipping on Mist
Where is the joy of my precocious youth,
that slowly slipped one morning into a mist,
like a lover's lost affection for lips once kissed
and sipped so sweetly...
She corners me
Then whispers me her poetic verses laced with love
And although Id always find her art appealing
I can't be with her
This thing that she wants will never be...
This is a recent poem, 2006.
Shuffled like bureaucratic paperwork
From desk to desk
Second hand clothes
Second hand love
Second hand child...
Torn between love and perception
I hope this is something I'm living
Not just another deception
But she sets my heart on fire
And every time I try to breathe
My heartbeat rises...
Dark spaces inside my head
Take over my mind when you
Go on your tirades
You yell and scream
You accuse me of breaking
Promises to change.
You act as if I'm a monster...
Beauty is of little Consequence
Who am I to say that love is not right but wrong?
That love judges its appearance by what it reflects
Questions speaks in no regard of this...
With Every Word
Could a spider be more than size
Slander be more than lies
Could statues be more than stone
A king be worth more than his throne
They think when it doesn't hurt...
THE GIFT OF TIME(c) 2015 Edward YorkThe little hands I held today,Brought to my face a smile.And any troubles I may have had,Left me for a while.Even though you are short right now...
Sitting in the cold
Trying a different pain
The ice isn’t enough
Frustration, anger, fear,
Sitting alone in the cold
Wanting a different pain
I am not invincible
Though I thought I was
Turns out I have a breaking point
I guess everyone does
Hers is the stress
Of pleasing everyone
His is the pain...
Eloquence is reconstructed into controlled fingers.
Figurines are acrobats gliding through lazy afternoons
Baton twirls are titanic, altered pens spin dizzy...
I wish I was you; I don’t want to be me. Let me become everybody, so I will be able to feel good about my sanity. I feel I am blind, bound by shackles. “Let me go...
Hey! There's a great poetry sharing website called www.poetfreak.com just saying :)
Take me away
Taking me to another dimenssion
Your love gives me a magic reaction
Leaving me short of breath
With just a word my inhibitions all melt
Undressing each layer of my...
Alone at birth, alone at death,
Longing for love, with every breathe.
Captured heart, a broken dream,
Loss of words, and a silent scream.
Fascinating irony of being alone,
This is not about anyone here. I wrote this when I was 26.
TELLIN' ME LIES
Tell me lies.
Such little white lies.
I may be,
(c) 2015 Edward York
I stood at the clearing between the trees,
And stared out at the lake.
The orange glow that was reflecting there,
Made me glad I was awake.
Okay, so I love singing, but it's best done just in the shower! I'm so out of tune!
But then again I could break the glass!
Check the scene
Looking for something more than supreme
More challenging beyond my wildest dreams
Something warm something cozy
Something that'll make my days better even a...
The past always returns
A cycle unbroken
And repeating patterns
Leaving behind the burns
Loves, friends and family
People I cannot hate
Decide I'm unworthy
Like some flaw within...
The crash was beautiful chaos.
the doctors cried giving the news.
There were no windows in the room
No sunlight in your hair
No audience for the birds
Everything was white, except...
HIDE FROM LOVE
The pain strikes suddenly
Like lightening from above
Hold your breath...
Another poem from my youth.
DENIAL OF LOVE
Cupid's bow twangs,
On my heart.
Lovely little sparrows,
I am dying.
But have no fear.
I am crying.
I love sunrise...
It's not because of the golden hue or soothing warmth that touches us,
I love the sun because it shines of your hair as you sleep. You are angelic in that light...
