Waking up in the morning,
another day dawns,
I rush to my computer,
I flip the cold box on.
As it's familiar sounds start,
Time to pour a cup,
I rush back to sign on,
To see if he's already up.
The "Sign In" is complete,
Today begins anew,
I gesture "Good Morning...
heard the sounds of laughter,
And seen the flow of tears.
I have felt the comfort of understanding,
That comes from many years.
Sometimes it takes a journey,
For understanding to be found.
And to know the path that is meant for us,
To keep us planted on the ground.
In the gloam
deep in the forest
where the faeries sleep
There is one who knows
She knows the full measure
of you; the flame your smile kindles
The ache your brown eyes afford with every stroke
And the wake you leave in your leaving.
In the gloam
deep in the forest
waves roll in, the horizon grows thin as the world's eyes close I just flow in the wind. I'm alone in the end, but alone time is golden I've turned away from plenty faces though I didn't know them.
I take to my mirror to remember the scars that we grow with and the stars that...
If only they spoke ...
.. Those walls .. If only they spoke ...
To tell about that hidden truth and what really goes around ..
To tell about those secretive screams that never made a sound ..
To tell about those real smiles that yet haven't been found ..
To tell how those lies...
She cries each night,Never does she show her pain,Always hiding her face,How long can she stay strong?How many more days must she play along,Raw emotion in her eyes,Fear crawling up her spine as she wipes the tears,Looking down at her scars,Looking at her reflection as she hides...
I knew better
I put myself in this position
Just when I think I'm winning
I start losing
This game called love
It's so confusing
A vicious cycle with no conscience
No remorse, I made my choice
I sacrificed my heart
Was torn apart by feelings I let loose
It's a noose...
I planted this seed...
watered it with my blood...
tried my best to shine...
my inner light upon it...
so it might prosper...
but as it broke through the soil...
I knew it was fragile...
maybe I sheltered it too much...
perhaps I didn't give it...
as much as I...
that slowly slipped one morning into a mist,
like a lover's lost affection for lips once kissed
and sipped so sweetly like little nips of vermouth,
and never returned? Where is the joy of my youth,
that made me shake with delight and fear at a tryst...
That I may experience their deaths
Over, and over, until mine eyes awaken
For though i may sleep,
I shall know no rest
For ever, and ever...
Let your vengeance course through me
Thy rage inflict weeping sores upon the soul
That i may live once more,
And in light of day, devour...
The ice isn’t enough Frustration, anger, fear, Failure… Sitting alone in the cold Wanting a different pain I found it Below my fingertips But stop Lo and Behold Stop He loves you Stop. He. Loves. You. Stop! Shivering, crying, screaming...
In nighttime's sleepless hours my reverie of you takes hold
I place a kiss so gentle as not to stir a sleeping baby on the face that fills my waking hours and haunts my dreams
You alone are my Northern lights, evoking a rainbow of cascading colours, Plumes of light that fill the...
As I lay back down to sleep
to dream of nature's virtue, sweet
to dream of her within my mind,
to dream of once upon a time
to dream the dream of
happy ever afters
to dream once more
of nature's laughter
to know it teases,
and in it's recourse
Check out my strong verbs!
Dig my quotation marks, they're loaded with detailed jargon.
Say, you have some great exclamation points,
Can I be your indirect object?
You may accuse me of using crude superlatives, suffice it to say,
My language is unbiased and suitable for...
that I'm going insane
That what I say is crazy, wrong, and in vain
I never meant to offend you, but thought I would be weak
To see the signs in front of me, yet turn the other cheek
And when I spoke, and I could tell the war I waged would not end well
I apologized and I began to...
Slander be more than lies
Could statues be more than stone
A king be worth more than his throne
They think when it doesn't hurt
We mean that it's much worse
Shoot us in the chest again
One more day if we pretend
You'll be seeing headlines
It's all we ever dreamed
You have eyes and yet you are blind.
Past is past
Yet you look behind.
You love yet you tear
Stop breaking my mind.
History is studied so it wont be repeated
Yet you choose to forget i end up depleted.
My lungs are dying from the screams you choose not to hear.
So alive amid dying light,
Embraced by the night,
Illuminate with unseen bliss.
The earth is your canvas.
Scary, yet I’ve no fear.
From afar I see slow dancing:
On haunted soil, frolicking
In ragged dress with messy hair,
Awkward steps oh, so dear.
Remove your cozy boots...
As a veil in your thoughts and dreams
Image of my red lips and red hair
Is what you remember
But no life is behind those thin eyes
While the real ones gleamed that colour
Like the rest of me
Shards tearing us apart
Or perhaps we were always torn...
The only difference between us
Is how we both have seen us
Some days the birds will fly
Or crash into the sky
They don't need to be justified
Just use your wings
By whatever it means
Leave it all behind you
If that's what you need
I'm sick of watching
And waiting to pass...
My heart is as deep as the Hudson River. Its fresh with unpredictable currents. Once a murky barren zone is now the object of a mid summers swim.
My mind is a twisted Christmas peppermint stick. Its stale and forgotten in your grandmothers garage, along with...
thought I was
Turns out I have a breaking point
I guess everyone does
Hers is the stress
Of pleasing everyone
His is the pain
Of loosing a loved one
Mine is different
It doesn't seem right
But mine is myself
It's pretty Black and white
I am broken down
through your fake facade?
You made us both like equals, we are both just as flawed.
Did you think I couldn't hear you right through your many lies?
I know what you are made of, I can see through your disguise.
You tried to be such a badass with a good guy side.
But I didn't...
Broken pieces, shattered all around
We heard the sound, when it all hit the ground
Torn pages, in the book of my life
In the pain and strife, seems like a losing fight
Empty spaces, covered in clutter
My heart skips paces, and my words come in stutters
I see the places, where the...
I'm sick, and it's a pretty little illness
A prefrontal bacteria that eats away my willingness
To live within the social parenthesis
I'm twisted, sick from this political annilingus.
The jacket that I'm wearing will define my disorder
I'm due to see a professional Visceral...
I have let the light go,But not let the dark in,The pain from withing spreading my fears,You and I,Standing here alone,We are like each other,The pain consuming me,This world is nothing but a dream,A peace of a shattered memory,Here we go,The secrets we never shared,Each time we...
mind when you
Go on your tirades
You yell and scream
You accuse me of breaking
Promises to change.
You act as if I'm a monster.
I never cheated on you.
I never turned my back on you
I always stood by you
And when I say I am here for you
You attack me and shut me out.
Coldness strikes, a vicious debate.
Judgmental world, of past no more,
Dying perspective, losing allure.
Trouble sleeping, painful awake,
Desiring more, make no mistake.
Twisted path to journey's end,
Skeletons closet, makes no amends.
Passion for living, questioning dead...
to be me. Let me become everybody, so I will be able to feel good about my sanity. I feel I am blind, bound by shackles. “Let me go!” What has a hold of me? All I desire is love, something I can observe in others. This is why I hate to see my reflection; because it’s a...
as the enemy and shut me down
Your words are bombs
Insults exploding inside my heart
I hear the crash over and over again
Ages after the devastation
You close the door in my face
You see me as an invader and the enemy
You see me as the root of all evil
You seek to destroy me...
Do not be afraid of life,the pain,the peril and the strife.Do not shrink with fear and dread from the things that lie ahead.
Do not be afraid to try-for no goal can be too high.You may fail but don't complain,you can always try again.
Do not be afraid to speak,to adventure and to...
I’m great, fine, spectacular. In a way
I relish every night, and I live every day.
I live, I laugh, I write, I sing,
I wonder what the new days will bring.
Then I get home, and I take off the mask.
The day, an almost impossible task,
Is finally over, and so I lay Down,
For dropping a plate, for missing his call
for everything, for anything;
things big and things small.
"I'm sorry," I say,
and the word hits him like a train.
He makes to move towards me,
I make to move away.
I know he must get tired,
always having to soothe this fright.
Her nails painted pink,
Eyes rusted shut.
They say the distance killed her.
The coroner had a hard time
Her heart had grown too swollen
then dried too quick.
I wish I had told her at
the time that
happiness doesn’t last.
But instead she went...
hands I held today,Brought to my face a smile.And any troubles I may have had,Left me for a while.Even though you are short right now,In emotions you are tall.Possessing a great big growing heart,In a body that is small.I watched you try to make a choice,As your mind began to...
path I take
Goes with me too
I can work alone
And think it is fun
To start a task
And see it done
I can sleep alone
For once I'm there
My dreams will take
I can stand alone
And face the fight
I will not run
If I know I'm right
But love alone
I can not do
Another night has come and gone and here I sit all alone
wondering what the hell I did wrong
Trying to pick myself up and carry on
Though it's tough when you have been beaten up by life
Lost your will to fight
Trying not to listen to the voices in your head
Fighting against the...
because I feel ashamed, but because I'm afraid of the discrimination I will get...I love everyone and everything...When we have a conversation and open up to one another, I guess Ive opened up a little to far...Now it seems to me we are right back at the start...We never speak...
Dressed in black
Our shirts tear stained
On looking a hurtful sight
Watching you go down
How is it so hard to believe
This is it, its the end of your round
As you get lower
The boys start to shout
Slapping their chests
Stamping their feet on the ground
verses laced with love
And although Id always find her art appealing
I can't be with her
This thing that she wants will never be enough
She doesn't believe me when I say I'm no longer good for her
I love her still
And I always will
But I'm not willing too go down that road...
The feelings we share I ride like a wave,
The ups the downs the direction they make,
On a magic carpet that we made,
From threads of ourselves,and the pattern we laid
the vessel counts as much as the map,
The carriage awaits for us to step up,
I admit Its scary as it might...
