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
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...
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...
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...
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...
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 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...
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
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...
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...
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...
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...
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...
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...
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
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...
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
”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...

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 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
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.
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...
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...
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...
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...

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
...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...

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
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.
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...

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
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...
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.
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
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...
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...
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...
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
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...
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
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...
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...
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...
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...
