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
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
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.
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 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...
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...
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
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...
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'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 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.
written by LISA TSAKIRI...
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
...Monday.....gesture, ...fondle profile, fanTuesday...log in to to the euphoria of a new friend....exchange pleasantries with ep mail....learn all about your new friend...all the shared common ground...oh, you did that? you saw that play? i was at that concert too!i love poetry...
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.
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...
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 do write poetry and am working on my second book but because of ideas and writing stolen off of EP I no longer share...as the people who stole them are here on EP at times...my thoughts, my words spelled out the way I look at things, my heart then to have them stolen cuts very...
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'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
Now, the things...
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...
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...
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
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...
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...
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...
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
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...
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...
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.
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...
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...
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...
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...
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
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...
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...
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
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...
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...
