A great building in the distance
Stretching high above the ground
I go up to the roof
Stand on the ledge
I stretch my arms to feel,
To feel the great breeze
A crowd forms below
They scream, they yell
They yell, they scream
if it's all just a lie
Sometimes I wish I could forget things
But memories never die
I let myself drown in insanity
I can't find my personality
A demon has taken over
It's like I'm drunk but sober
The world around me twists and turns
My heart inside me bleeds and burns
Memories dim in, Flashes of another steps forward, No image of daughter, A image of horror, Her mother.
Anger so vile, Fill with the poison, Dark hate like the demon fills those one happy eyes, Now each mark of blue, Now each mark of black.
No daughter is there, No smiles...
We have our differences
And that is true
But in many ways
We are the same
“I’m just like you”
You have stories to share
and I have mine
You have experiences to share
and so do I
I have confession to make
and maybe you have too
We are in the...
You told me you loved me and promised to love me forever.
I gave you my heart and soul thinking that you were true.
I was there for you when you needed me.
I held you in my arms through those endless nights and kissed your tears away.
I loved you and would have given my...

after the sky drops.
The walking corpses come
out the veil of night
masks the decay
Plague of the earth.
Found from the ashes
My phoenix we bled
Has she ever
thought love between
up an empty bed.
You'll never know the affect of your disappearing act,
What you did was wrong and that's a fact.
You left me barren and confused,
Feeling like I messed up instead of you.
This seems to be typical with guys of your kind,
To use a girl and **** with her mind.
The past has burned down
And the future is naught but a desert
The sky is clear and cloudless
But the sun burns me, mercilessly
I squint my eyes
But there is still nothing but haze
There aren't even any shadows
In which I could hide
They say your decision is right
When you choose the hardest fight
I feel confuse everyday
Fell guilty everyday
I wanted to tell the truth on what I feel
But I'm afraid it's against your will
I said I do love you
You said you love me too
My mind says I must stay...
Sometimes I focus on everything bad,
Everything that's got me thinking of throwing the towel in,
Makes me want to jump off a platform of any kind.
Sometimes we meet somebody that takes away the will to jump,
And I guess I'm just that lucky,
'Cause I met you.
So now I'm...
Lovers seducers men their tapers
Liars and cheats hide behind words
People of science find for us cures
Married men have taken their vows
Those of renown have taken bows
We each have a choice to make each day
Which will you be, what do you say
If there's anyone who knows what it's like to feel alone,
If there's anyone who knows what it is to love beyond measures and be left bleeding,
If there's anyone who's stood by you, and helped you up,
If there's anyone who knows what it is,
one of memories
one filled with loves tenderness
if i could follow it on down its fabled road
if i could live the song and its beautiful places
walk with its colorful characters as they laugh together
be the young lovers once again as they discover that first kiss
Is it my memories?
Is it my heart yanking at my core?
Is it my mind running through all the possibilities?
All I know is I stay awake
Time and time again
Wondering how much of this I can take
Before my heart and mind are slain
I can't quite point it out
That which tortures me...
snow and moon light ,
shining across the misty midnight,
glistening under the gloom
sparkling up the spacious view.
staring up at the stars
wondering what we are,
glancing through a telescope ?
wishing for a life of love and hope.
falling miracles from the sky
When you see this girl
what do you see?
you see a girl who has
been labeled as
when you see this girl
who do you see?
you see a girl who wants to
why you ask because of this label she hates who she is
she hates that you label her
now who is...
oh your so beautiful with the reminders of this and that that shock her twinkling bulb into a glistened yellow to making her feel again. She's quickly ripped apart like tearing of the whitest cotton as the pureness of her spirit diminishes by the time the the sun trickles down...
'Sometimes I wonder
Where it all went wrong
When did I lose
What I had all along
Sometimes I wonder
Why am I here
Who am I
Or should I even care
Sometimes I wonder
If this real
That I really exist
If I really feel
Sometimes I wonder
Does this make sense
Or is it all scrambled
bright open lands,
He strolled with his wife, held his children's hands.
They smiled and played, filled with delight,
These were his dreams, the illusions of night.
The daybreak gifted a glorious morning,
But he stood alone, tired and yawning.
Twas merely another of his limited...
This touch that I felt, now I need even more
Then you’ll ever know how.
My polarity you are, my love I adore.
To connect our spirits, with flesh and soft words
I’ve penetrated the core.
The center of you.
Now this embrace will ensure. There is no abandon
you know its true
Know matter what happens
I will always be here for you
You can call me when you're in need
I'll be right there to help you off your knees
I'll be there even after the world ends
You can never understand how much i love you true friends
Knowing they are right...
If you can no longer pretend
Pretend that your smile is your friend
Don't pull that act
Don't say your okay
Let me help you take the pain away
I'm only trying to be your friend
I know the feelings
I've had them before
Please no don't...
aroused my most inner thoughts and desires.
You have awakened what was once dormant.
The light touch of your lips on my skin has awakened my soul.
I've yearned for your touch without even knowing of your existence.
You who has hidden behind shadows and awaited patiently like a...
Im not asking you to care
I dont trust anyone anymore
People are nothing but liars
And hide this fact under layers
I am done trying to be heard
When no one is ever around to hear
I don't want you to save me
I don't want to be saved
I just let this lupus to kill...
Once upon a starry night
I met a love I thought was right
I settled down to live a life
& thought one day I'd be your wife
Times were hard, but we pulled through
Laughs and smiles were but a few
Life was sorted and then times were good
Nothing could break the...
that is not just a tool; but a powerful sidekick; a a male companion, if you will; a pirate of the seven seas. Through it, you have unlimited power. Some use it for the sole purpose of visiting their fantasy world. Others use it to slice open fairies and sprinkle their own...
The prejudice of the mind never ceases to amaze,
there is so much that is said with just a single gaze.
this bias bulids fortresses of ignorance that seem impenetrable.
This mind, so full of fables
this mind that is imprisioned,
this mind that is blind to the truth...
and Jill were dearest friends
And were always bide and bide.
So, they made a promise when they were young
To stay by each other's side.
Unfortunately, their cemented friendship
Began to swell and rot.
It turned into love for Johnny
But, for Jill, it did not.
And though Johnny...
after my friend's death , after long struggle with insanity caused by his most beloved brother's death .
My friend was found dead in the valley in a disgusting scene .
Proud of You !
Proud of saying my friend
Insane,true that was already settled
My old days I remembered...
when the words come
like fevered friends grasping at lapels
urgently telling the tale with gasping breath
other times they come like a sweet river in the sunshine
they flow like bright beauty
the words can ignite you or seduce
like a simple phrase sweet to the ear
I wrote and published my first poem at 6, my career as a poet has been uphill ever since. I publish and perform, but lately other ventures have crowded it out. Here's one of my better ones, it reduced a friend of mine to tears - in the world of poetry that's...
But never heard him breathe.
I took his tiny hand in mine,
But knew he had to leave.
I saw him enter this cruel world,
But never saw him grow.
I'll never see his face again,
It's so sad to watch him go.
Chilly; cool weather is my favorite,
And with you I wish to share it,
Puddles of water beneath my feet,
It is you I'm here to meet.
Sitting in the rain, knowing you won't come,
Brings back pain and makes me feel numb,
The cool wind brings a shiver to my spine,
Oh, what a shame...
If you really wanna hear me scream,
Then cover me in gasoline,
Set me alight with the match of the dead,
Watch as the flames burn a hole in my head.
Come smell my weeping heart,
Lift it high and tear it apart,
For nothing can hurt as much,
As not feeling your tender...
Daniel came a-running
We were meeting in the sun
Daniel was a dead man
When the night had just begun
Red sweater and red shoes
On a tree branch, then a call
Bloodred sweater, bloodred shoes
And blood in the waterfall
The seas changed their direction...
I want to got to the Secret Place
Where the Dreamers roam
And pride is shown
I want to go to the Secret Place
Where love is deep
And Passion is a race
Where preciousness is kept
All while we sleep
No monsters roam
No evil to creep
I want to...
A paw fits into another
like a jigsaw fits together.
Bonded with the force of love,
It's unbreakable, invincible and unconditional.
They join at the heart,
In a world of insanity,
Where the only thing that exsists
is the love between them.
A full moon glows and the stars twinkle...
Some friends remain
Some were meant to be
We can always sit under a tree
Talk about our long history
The good, the bad, the ugly
While some will make you mad
Others will make you very sad
The majority of these memories
Will fill you with so much happiness
Because when push...
his little path between the two fences
over and over....back and forth
the grass is threadbare when he runs
spends a moment hawkishly staring out one fence
at the world going by
angry barking at a cloud
then trot to the other fence to see what has
a rain begins...
sleeping state, awake but never satisfied.
Disappointment and fake is all around me, now it's seeping in.
I used to watch the days go by, but now I've lost count, what is this? Limbo?
Must've put myself in that little hole again. It reeks with all the dirt and crawling bugs...

and her poem,
"Still I Rise"
I may seem weak from what you see
Your eyes they never lie
But look at me from within my flesh
You'll see a warrior deep inside.
Your words may hurt my feelings
But you won't see me crawl
My spirit won't go without a fight
I will never fall.
please stop making me feel like numb
you make me feel and act like dumb
stop treating me as if i'm a piece of gum
that you keep chewing it whenever you need
then you just throw it on the ground
then you step on it with your feet
and then you are gone
Your pretty diamond necklaces
And, your silk and satin robes.
Please don't tell me your " I'm sorry's"
They don't mean much to me!!
They are just empty words said after what you really spoke to me.
