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...
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.
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...
A year ago I dare to go
To a foreign land I barely know
I need to leave the life I live
Those people who love those persons who care
Once I’m alone can’t talk to anyone
I can’t help myself to remember someone
My thought will surely travel...
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.
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...
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.
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
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...
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
You are everything I need
You are my life
You are part of the reason why I'm still here
My love for you is as high as a mount and as vast as a sea
I truly love you.........
'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
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
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...
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
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...
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...
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...
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...
if some of you recognize who i am after reading this- keep your big mouth shut. i enjoy being "anonymous"...
once again i hang myself with my words, every sentence another knot on the noose, every feeling an inch closer towards the edge of the chair. i throw all i...
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...
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...
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...
that has left me feeling all alone
His lips touch mine
There is no longer such a thing as running out of time
His Ora is infinite inspiring me to win
I often fear the person I would be without him
I have never met someone so beautiful inside and out
I feel confident that I...
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...
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
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
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...
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...
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...
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.
me by her eyes
Her true intentions shown through years
Were really shown as my darkest fears
Reliving the moment over and over
Hits like the stench of an ogre
My heart torn and my feelings broke
I fall asleep hope to never woke
I had wished it was a dream, but it was not
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
I am a fierce wind and a gentle breeze,A roaring of thunder, a whisper in the trees.Cold as ice, and a red, fiery flame,A drought, a desert, and a torrent of rain.A calm, quiet lake, with water serene,Violent ocean waves crashing, a nightmare, a sweet dream.I am a fighter...
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...
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,

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

up an empty bed.
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...
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
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...
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...
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...

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...
