    A New World. I had a meeting not long ago,

    And thought we were alone. But we were joined by several more, Connected on their phone. Before the words could be expressed, They had to answer text. I could only sit and wait, In hopes that I’d be next. So the future lies before us, And cell phones catch the blame. We...

    The Hello To My Good-bye The world,

    so beautiful yet so cruel, so peaceful but full of raging wars. Every smile is led by a frown. In the darkness I see it. I see the peace. But when night turns to day. I’m just another person born upon a grave. Are we not all bid a due with the warm welcome of hello when we...

    A Sunny Day In Thalamus

    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 like to write one on the spot,

    so here goes nothing. Undesirable My heart sinks where it can not float I am being held by the throat I'll leave something less meaningful like a note I don't usually use pepper and salt People are just people but I seem to care What it seems to be, what it seems to be not...

    Real Pain

    You are lost In faded colours of Summer's smile Memory. The world we had now locks me out I tear and strain in desperate style You drift away, I scream and shout My blood dries in the vein True love just means real pain. You are lost Until moonbeams send you from the skies To cut...

    ALONE I can walk alone And often do For the

    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 Me everywhere 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 There...

    All i can feel is you,

    a pain i wished not to endure, a simple smile flashing bright, your dark eyes finally seeing me. One more I love you, before the story is over, and as I have told you before, this is not our end. Baby please dont cry, the pain of you cutting through me, a simple need, a...

    Motions

    Letters To a Sailor..

    .. April showers in the window, there's flooding in my head. May flowers on the sunrise, September's on my bed. Birthday cards from strangers. Books of science on the floor. Friends of friends are knocking, I'm still at September's door. Sweet iced tea by the pool but my mind...

    I Missed Your Smile Today.

    On the platform I watched with fascination the lovers at the station Lost in tender admiration I had to turn my gaze away. For the first time in a long time I missed your smile today. Living life at a pace, agents to please, speeches to make and deadlines to keep. The only time...

    Ride or Die You always feared leaving your

    All these thoughts Set to a swirling medley made

    for strolling madly. Let go... Fall into the void... Total, utter, surrender. Contemplation, rumination is my ruination. My ruined nation. Take me back to the start, back to the start... Write from the heart.

    The Mask

    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, and wait...

    Mosaic

    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...

    Long Distance Love

    Miles of empty air between us, We still manage to love. Through time and space, The affection finds its way. Words cannot take the place Of physical contact. But somehow, Love finds a way.

    Pain In These Eyes

    When you look into someone's eyes, you can see everything. You see emotions and their journey. Their heartbreaks and their fears. Their memories, maybe even eternity. Now, look into my eyes, And tell me what you see. Can you see the darkness, That lives deep within me? Can you...

    In Sleepless Hours

    Was going through all the old poems on Google

    Drive. Came across this one. I never showed it to the person I wrote it for, I didn't think she wanted it at the time. I doubt it would've changed anything. But if I had showed her, I wouldn't be questioning why I chose not to. If you have something to tell someone, tell them...

    In The Gloam

       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 where the...

    I dream of childhood.

    An hour would last a day. And every next one, would be another one to play. I dream of childhood. To fight my demise. Destroy it with a stick that is a sword in disguise. I dream of childhood. Climbing trees to the top. The branches ate my future, the ground is still a long...
