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
while my kid is drinking apple juice, makes me happy. Hot sip, cold dip between conversations and enjoyment. Cold sip, hot sip between yes and nooooo ways...
Sip sip sip together together together in the moment of us that will never return.
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...
...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...
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...
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...
And, here is your present, a wish just for you.
Though I'm posting in public so others can see it too.
That's just a way so everyone will all know
that you are indeed special, as this poem will show.
It's strange I must say, as I type this sweet flow.
As I look at our...
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...
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
that it was over.
And as days passed, I vowed to let go.
After a month, you were still here.
After two, my pain and suffering ruled.
With the third, renewed hope.
I, would try again?..
Again I tried, to let you go.
My mind pushed, but my heart said no.
The walls were...
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
”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 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...
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...
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...
I have let you go.
And other times, I feel like I must know.
So in my confusion, I check and see.
If you have the same, ****** up feelings as me.
I never get answers, just become more confused.
Sometimes I am angry, but don't know at who.
Is it you, or is it me? My mind has to...
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...
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
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...
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.
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...
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...
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...
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...
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...
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...
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
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...
come. In my mind this is the day I hide from.
It is the day that I know, I know I must let you go.
I will never forget, the way that it feels, this is how I know that it's real.
The barbed wire that I have been crawling through, has cut me enough times.
The time has come to...
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...
Never lived in a house like this one. But I have an imagination and it sees this. Oh and I never lived any further south than the border between Canada and the USA.What I can see when I sit on my big , front, wrap around, screened in porch, in front of the pretty, white...
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...
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.
and think that what we see from without is what we get when we are without. Emotions can be as true as this logic might suggest, but even that image evokes some lesser kind of immediate threat.
Just what is it dear friends that sets us free. Is it having dialogue of the world...
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 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...
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 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...
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...
About a year and a half ago I stumbled upon a pair of lovers here. I watched for a time, just letting their words to each other wash over me. They went back and forth for what seemed like a forever of beauty and tranquility filled with amorous affection. I ended up friending both...
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...
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.
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...
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...
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
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.

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...

Which path do I choose?
Looking inside, just leaves me confused.
My mind wanders, from thought to thought.
It is as if, none can be caught.
Like a butterfly, and a child with a net.
If I catch the beauty, what do I hope to get?
The mind will do, what it wants to do.
