    Daniel's Child

    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...

    My Poem

    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...

    True art is twisted It is perfection without

    any meaning nor an end, It holds you to your own personal standard and sets the bar in no particular place, leaps and bounds can be made to beat out your opponent but there will always be a successor. art has no real beginning and an undefined ending, it can never be...

    Someone on here was talking to me about poetry,

    as how to write it. So I gave it a go. It is my first ever poem, so don't judge xD Fading. Clutching the bottle, Her grasp grows weary Her heart races, But is dead inside A long drag, A swig from the can Takes all her pain away Her worries fading with the smoke She lies in...

    I held my baby in my arms,

    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.

    The Thing Once beneath a sinking sun,

    With shadows long and wide, The forest gave to me a gift, That has never left my side. Years hence I still recall, The Jasmine and piney smell, That still reminds me oft again, Of what it is I tell. Near a craggy moss filled stump, I jolted with a scare, For standing nay 10...

    Porcelain Moon Smooth my scabbed back,

    For My Girlfriend

    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...

    Actually, I copied it off an email.

    I met a girl in the park the other evening. There was an instant spark between us and she fell at my feet. As we laid there making love, I thought---- "These tasers are well worth the money."

    You can keep your flowers Your rings made out

    of gold 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.

    Stained hands and stained cheeks, Falling down, faster now, leaving ugly charcoal streaks And I wait for you to notice And I wait for you to care I wait for you to hear me screaming out my silent prayers But you never come and save me, You don't see my despair, You never...

    Born in form divided pure,

    Man shapes as one undone. From his truth we so lure, To sanity’s lies, her son. What agony must endure, He that purpose does shun. In vanity thus conjure, A pretension to be won.

    Romance In a Hopeless World

    And with the world outside So black and lifeless. We do nothing but watch As life passes us by. Content in each others arms, We lie. Not a word is whispered, As your lips meet mine.

    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...

    The path that we had walked on was just a poor

    chance. Futile. Not even a romance. Faithless. For love doesn't decay, It doesn't stray It waits in quietness Not sits forever in darkness. Walk away. Far. Don't leave footprints. For the past should be left alone. Like a forgotten cold stone.
