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
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...
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...
Cressage. The days are warm and bright.
There's blossom on the blackthorn: Wild flowers bloom, left and right.
A white bridge stands majestic, astride the Severn's flow.
Old pillboxes keep their vigil, still waiting for the foe.
The trees and the grass are greening: There's a...
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...
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...
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...
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...
that I depict as 'dark poetry' open your minds. Let me know what you think please
----- 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...
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
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

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...
and rivulets run downWhilst I lay on my sick bed in pyjamas and a dressing gown.I think the lives of my old comrades were rather like the rain, Active, brief and passionate - free of all my pain.They were forged upon life's anvil and smote by the hammer of war,I knew them for a...

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 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...
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...
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.
Rest your heart,here in my hands
Shield your soul behind me.
Let me safeguard your deepest thoughts
With a friendship given freely
I ask you not for anything
Yet,for you to be yourself
With all I am,and might ever be
I wish you happiness and health
So rest your heart and...
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
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.
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...
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...
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...
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.
”Julian, where are you?” the call died out as soon as it left his mouth, the only sound to be heard was the rattle of some rats who were fleeing the ally because of the disturbance. Julian was nowhere to be seen, not even her perfumed scent of Forrest which he gave her at her...
AS I SCREAM A LOT WORRIES
LIKE A CAT
HIDDEN IN THE DARK
WITH VISION SHARP
WATCH BEHIND MY BACK
KILLING LIKE A START
DAWN 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.

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
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
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...
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
like normal for Caleb. He was in the same classrooms, had the same teachers and friends, and knew the school like the back of his hand. Nothing had changed, and Caleb didn't expect it to.
Caleb and Derick had been best friends since 2nd grade. When Caleb had first moved to...
a strange energy mingling and mixing in the midst
bothered by many things of immediacy from back yonder from over there, from behind...THAT
they know me as kind and fair and fortunate and innocent
they know me not but not to worry I ain't gonna reminisce...
THAT is an...
witness of a small crime
He smashed the door to the office he would search to Rob
In panic he and I both rushed
Him to the scene and me to flee the horror
Of being witnessed to witness his crime
About my business that day I did go
Planning my escape from the hostel...
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...
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
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...
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...
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...
