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.
your prose refined
glides across my skin
luxurious to my senses
a brilliance that's rare
yet humble with grace
speak so gently
you bridge our differences
the delicate way you
now turns transparent
this chasm you insist
Ah, so again I see the voracious side
of the one within the seeker's light
Should caution be the winding way
to gaurd her from all that she craves
For truly the mind of such a man
who holds the madness in his hand
might be a thing too hard to chew
a maze of rhyme to travel...
AS I SCREAM A LOT WORRIES
LIKE A CAT
HIDDEN IN THE DARK
WITH VISION SHARP
WATCH BEHIND MY BACK
KILLING LIKE A START
DOWN WILL FIND ME CALM
AS I FOUND HUNT
I WILL KILL SOME RATS
JUST BECAUSE OF FUN
I WILL JEALOUS MORE
SO I CAN BE ALONE.
They talked to each other. Each with their own set of questions and replies. Each with a demanding want for a better understanding. They conversed. Neither stood accused or denied. Slowly did they try at first..., until again and again..., their lust overtook them, a wanting so...
I gather together every memory of emotion and tie it to a
collage of visual and auditory perception
any detail I could gather before the moment passed
there are so many details
I attempt dissect it to purify an answer
I discover how I would seek my answer is truly an...
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
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
I'm the most perfect mistake
The mistake you always make
Takes the cake
When you say
You never make it again
Then you have the nerve to
Turn around and call me
Like your here till the end
I can't depend on you
Making choices that will
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...
fountain seemed to glisten with the iridescent light of those whose lives surround it. I stood staring at it, that old forgotten fountain, whose manna it circulates from Poseidon’s domain. It was crafted from the stolen fire and the minds of men. It stands accomplished in its...
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...
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...
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...
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
though lifted on...
on this :
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
Unnecessary burden to gather twigs when kindling is near the hearth
To feel so flighty, unaware, instilled in you from birth
The best teaching could offer until you reached a stage
An understanding found you each at different age
To run about and fret so what shall come of today...
Walls slowly closing in
slowly im suffocating
no were to run
from the light, the shadows come
cracking ,faded paint
searching for a window of escape
give up sanity , gain relief
better to laugh than to grieve
And there within the iris
of the blinking eye
There's the clarity of truth
hidden by the lie.
And in the softest whispered words
carried by the breeze
There is the truth of my mind's forest,
hidden by the trees
And in the long lost memory
of that long gone day
Silent sounds within my frown, my entire world just crashing down.
And as my thoughts burn like a pyre, my mind gets torn, and heart expires.
Never sure just what went wrong, or where it is that you have gone.
I tell myself it was all a lie, because that is what will get...
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...
that is a rumor
I once heard when the
Moment was hot and
We rocked the bed
Was that ever true?
It it was, it was as
Fleeting as the foam
On an ocean wave before
It reaches the sand
But it was more than glorious
Cold and captive
Hidden from view
Their spirits holding
More value than you
Lie to my face
I see what you hold
True loss experienced
No need to be again told
Wise words have come at every given angle
Now cut with the sword of a powerful angel
The least of digits of the right...

----- Interlude: food for thought
It's not always how you speak your mind, sometimes it's how you word it, who you might be speaking to, and how they heard it..
Don't look back I'm warning...
Fear has its own way of living-
Remaining strained from everything
Not living in the moment
Analyzing every second;
Thinking each time,
That something bad may happen
Not taking a chance and just say yes
But of course thinking...

Many things I rather do than wait to see the same
Many words I would like to cast including my true name
Though the time it does not suit me
My opinion is unjust
So I stand to wait
not for the judgement I would cast
But the lesson I must learn
Drenched in the sweat of desperation,Spinning my own illusionsTo live the life that I want Either in this world or,By strength of will,In a world shaped by my owncreativity and the enduranceOf my mindTo claim my tears and transform themInto stars which shine by the power 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...
In the Autumn, nighttime air
To hold you close and feel you there
To lay a kiss upon your cheek
To hear of all the things you'd speak
To walk along hand in hand
As the waves crash on the sand
As the moonlight lights the way
Our hearts wide open in love's display
Stone cold silent - Feels so violent
Torment raging, With his self war waging
Look too closely. Read it wrong
Not one place where he belonged
Stone cold stunning - He hit it running
Torment playing, With all He's saying
Look away, and miss it all...
I can feel It in there stirring,starting to come to life.I feel It's madness building,as It opens up Its eyes.I can sense It's aggrivation,as It shakes the cage's rusted bars.I know It comes back to life again.I hear It's laughter, and see It's scars.It's been idle for so...

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...
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

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...

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...

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...
There are times, I'd like to rhyme. Or sing a song, that's so sublime. Or dance away until the daylight shines.
Just because I can.
There are days I'd like to swim. Or hike across a ravines rim. Or just live according to that day's whims.
Just because I can.

Unlike any other
Unsuitable under this persuasion
All the knowledge pouring in
Bound for confrontation
I was told to hold back
Talk about the weather
The storm in my mind
How does the rain now fall as not before
On these grounds of least hydration
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...
to be, someone who's better than we are so the other wont leave.
We're not as perfect as they think
It's love that makes us appear so
And love that makes us try to be
In our pretending we do become someone who's better than we were....
And now I think that, I'm...

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...
