Pointing, laughing, talking,
Regular activities, right?
There I stand, hand on elbow,
Band aid on heart
Looking at the betrayal
Of my existence
The band aid falls,
And my heart cracks again
Suddenly it hardens,
It can't come undone
If some one can't get in.
And in that waking moment; Dashed
The dream of taking you at last
The dream of you within my arms
To succumb to all my loving charms
To fall to all these words I say
To love and lust the dream's array
To be seduced and be so smitten
To purr for me just like a kitten
And in the...

She could tell you how she
Her skin, once flawless
covered in dry blood stains
and torn skin
from the fault of a razor,
She hides from her
Because she'd rather keep
from her insanity.

We're not as perfect as they think

And love that makes us try to be
In our pretending we do become someone who's better than we were....

Inside the heat of Summer's days, with fun and and freedom all the craze,
The world is simply burning
Then Autumn leaves will start their dance, inside their falling cryptic trance
and the days will slowly shorten.
When winter comes it sends a chill. Doors are closing and time...
I'd like to tell you about a friend, who I think is just the best.
Her life has recently seemed to her, a bit like a small test.
She's really quite lovely. That's something I must confess.
Would you like to know her name ? Well, here she's known simply asQuintese

Tick tock love is gone
Why has it taken this much time
to realize my heart was wrong
You were my job, passion was the career
Was livin life with love, with nothing to fear
Because ... I was with you ....
Funny what things love makes you do
Broken street lightsOld pieces of paper sweptAnd Scattered by the unfriendly windsWe are sparks of lightSeparated from the divineWe go on with our busy lives, meLoving you wherever you may goA love that was a circus of dead flowersThat leave a taste of sweetness foreverI hope you...

Shield your soul behind me.

Yet,for you to be yourself
With all I am,and might ever be

Cressage. The days are warm and bright.

A white bridge stands majestic, astride the Severn's flow.
Old pillboxes keep their vigil, still waiting for the foe.

As I lay here, wide awake
Thoughts of you through my mind doth race
Inside my heart you heal the break
Into my soul you fill the space
As I lay with open eyes
Thoughts of you bring sweetened sighs
Inside my heart; soft lullaby
Into my soul where you reside
As I lay here I...
Someday – By Grainne
Freedom from the things that bind
Glowing eyes in beams of light
Open full and wide your mind
Dancing flames will reignite
Passion lost and spent in kind
Eating everything in sight
I don’t know how to unwind
Holding on with...
I remember the first day that we met, and you were all that I could see.
I still remember our first kiss, and the way you gazed at me.
I remember thinking way back then, that we could never last.
I remember thinking I wish we could, but that's all in the past.
We had so many good...

I thought omniscience belonged to God
But you also blanket over life
To smother, unravel
And reconstruct the living
Dirt under my nails, just to get you out I would pick
Until I bleed
If that’s what it took to ruin your work of art
Spread dry and brittle over linen canvas
If I began to strike a beat, would you play for me a tune
If I sang a song for you, will you dance around the room
If I came and held you close would you sigh so sweet
And if I looked into your eyes will my gaze you meet
If my breath was on your neck could it heat up your desire...
I hear the tears, I see the pain, I feel the laughter wain.
I taste the fears, I feel the call, I see the superhero fall.
I know the spheres, I see the end, I feel the laughter come again.
I want to persevere, I feel the need, I see your heart as it bleeds.
I send you...
Close my eyes,sit and sigh,lock away the tears inside.Won't let hope die,though I wonder why,evil finds a place to hideI think and try,to let love fly,and still I see far and wideThat answers reply,that goodness implies,that fear and pain cannot decideI stand with hands raised...
As I stare at the mirror all I can see,
are the eye's of a stranger that stare back at me.
A face that is worn down. A bit wrinkled and lined.
Some hair that is graying, and not a smile to find.
There's no emotions in that gaze there, not a hint to behold
let me know what you guys think
The sunrise comes as no surprise
Like the smile on your face
It's only a 12 hour race before that dies but ...
I gaze upon u only to find sadness like your
Hiding your pain, but isn't it apparent that the earth
Wonder about a world beyond space, beyond the galaxy? A world that is completely and utterly perfect. A world with peace & magical creatures. A world that has basically been pulled out of a fairytale book & is the exact opposite of this hell hole we call earth. Then reality hits...
I've had my ups and downs
My highs and lows
Walked in the fires
of my soul's bellows
And through it all
I came to know
That before me stood A Door.
So with a trembling hand
I knocked not once but twice
When it didn't open I knocked thrice
Behind it I knew
There was a vice
to let my demons free.)
All I recall is vague mist in memory
I can bring to focus only tattered remnants.
A desperate sadness in the core of me,
tainting the past of guilt and innocence.
As sharp as the pang of regret I live in
No person, no words, no savior no hope.
a cottonwood tree.
I was cut down and chip up into small pieces.
You had me shipped to a paper mill.
I was then dumped into a big pile
They then scooped me up and dumped me again.
I was carried along to a cold steal table that shooked me.
I fell through a hole, and carried off...
A soul is left to wanderthrough the pathways of the heartdown all the broken trailsand the forest; ever darkTo rise above the treelineto stand upon the peakof the mountains set before itas it searches for what it seeksAnd if the sun were to shineand fill that heart with...
Kisses and wishes, and the hook without fishes
Living and loving and eternal blisses
Sweetly denying the curses undying
and inside the truth see the thing that is lying
twisting the turning with a dead poet burning
and inside the madness of a person so yearning

I saw a women get shot on a ferry to England. The weather was stormy and no one had heard the shot due to the thunder. We were alone on the deck of the ship. He then pointed the gun at me. I was surprisingly calm, I felt no urge to fight or flight. I just continued to smoke my...
What ails you?
Those voices in your head
Could not be dopamine apparitions-
They are only soft coos
From the pretty white Face
That we hide in -
When the sun turns its back.
With this many lights
-Our own lights couldn’t possibly be extinguished-
Sometimes a cumbersome beast...
I am therefore I am. Just doing what I can. I'll stay gone and I'll carry on. It's my only plan.
I was therefore I was. And why I'm gone is just because. I know stuff's been said. I'm not dumb or dead, but still can feel the claws.
I sleep therefore I dream. And...
with you on a burgundy, wood bench, discussing a topic I can't quite recall. In the middle of our conversation you put your silver headphones over my ears and asked me my honest opinion of the song that was playing.
But how could I have been honest with you if I don't know...
Inside the magic mirror. Inside the land of dreams.
Inside the crystal waters. Inside the placid streams.
Inside the favorite feeling. Inside the peaceful heart.
Inside the everlasting. Inside the brand new start.
Inside of your forever. Inside of your true blue.
Inside of all...
That led me here.
So many days, weeks and years
So many good times
It all seems like just yesterday
As time passes by it changes the shape of the world
And each generation belongs to their time and so a different world
I belonged to a past world
That was new then and now is...
change the world? What about the parrot? Yes, I admit it-the world we now live in is my fault...though the parrot isn't without blame either.
It has been 3 1/2 months since my birthday. For my present, I had gotten a parrot. Yes, a parrot. You know those little winged beasts...
icy fog and flakes
Altered states of space and time, crashing in your wake
My eyes would rise to meet your own, and through the fog they'd stare
Hovering in ocean's blue, the depth beyond compare
As that thought took hold of me and crashed about my head
The only thing I could...
