Golden AfternoonI long to go back to the daysGolden Afternoon5 days ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
When all was not stained these muted grays,
But shaded hues of golden afternoon;
I feel like everything ended too soon...
Wishing I could return to the place
Where you always had a smiling face,
With fallen leaves stuck in our hair,
And dirt that seemed to cling everywhere...
Leaving trails through the empty forest wood,
Racing to catch up, if only I could...
Lost out in the middle of nowhere,
When my heart is gone, you can find it there...
Everything was shiny and gold,
Never thinking that we would grow old,
I'd take a nap and dream of bees,
Lurking there, safari through the trees...
The jungle cat would lie in the shade,
Watching, as my dreams slowly fade...
This place only exists within my memory,
Yet no one can wake me from this reverie...
It's my sacred secret place,
Where I vanish, without a trace...

clench your teeth to the frigid fruit-flavored Popsicle,

Leave the world we left behind,

Whisper your secrets to the wind,

Is it there raining? Or maybe sun, you’re smiling or you’re sad?
You’ve got your head up to the sky or scattered on the ground?
You pretty eyes, How do you feel? Still fighting sleepless nights?
Another one of those times when wrongs seem more than rights?
Dear man I love; don’t worry
‘Cause when you’re sad, I’m there, and rain will soon be gone,
You know, the way we feel the love, it’s stronger tha

Poem for Day 235 – 20150823
To hear the notes, to write the words,
passion to share feelings with you.
Stirred by the stream of melody,
composition by fellow man.
Pale echo of music expressed
in ink spilled two dimensional
against the whole breadth
of an artist's musical work.
Is my effort sufficient?
Will it stir your heart and soul?
Mutterings of a lesser man,
the sideshow to the feature act.
To try will be my sole refrain,
while words are not enough,
they will speak my soul's inner self,
a thing worthy to meet music's grasp.
Fervent wish from the lyricist,
fondest results of their craft,
that the words may combined
with a song of matched melody.
In the end the words will soar,
held up by wings of music's tones.
Creation joined in blessed rapture,
to touch the heart and sing the soul.

Last DanceRains fall down ontoLast Dance1 day ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
My empty face as dragons
Dance between the clouds.
Life and death are just waveforms
And I dance between them too.
Scraping out my soul,
My strength is in the hollow
Shell that I now am.
Because death is without weight,
While she comes I will dance.
One last time I dance.
Knowing I have not mattered
Means I am free.
You were always my false dream
Now I shall finally wake.

Withdrawal feelings amplified.
See through pleasure, free a meaning.
Don't let your life get simplified.
Your body casts distorting mirrors.
Don't look now, you won't see right!
Death, in this war, can dub no heroes.
There's no defeat in every flight.
For all you bled, what you have given,
it's life that signs every scar.
And if the ending isn't written,
despite your faults, you played your part.

the air thick with emotion
silence felt hard against us
love is like a deadly potion
Unable to read your mind
as you sit across the table
your features hidden in shadow
friction makes us so unstable
Your eyes ever watchful
they reflect the candle light
passion heightened, what will be
at this lateness of the night ?

Až pláč se ztiší,

Take a look
what life gave
and what life took
Don't cry when you feel
like nothing is real
like you are failing
like you are nothing
You are the princess
that needs to be saved
You are the dragon
hiding in a cave
You are the warrior
fighting for his life
You are the child
playing with a knife
You are the piece of art
not everyone can understand
but don't let that make you weak
You are a song
both quiet and loud
both happy and sad
you can break a heart
and make someone smile
and keep it in
close your eyes and
feel the life within
open your eyes
daydream and live
Lost to YouDarkness is all aroundLost to You9 hours ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
I feel as if I’m underground
I’m hidden away
No one else is here
Except for my captor who brought me here
Against my will
I was stolen away
In the middle of the night
No one, except you, hear my plight
Now you are searching
Searching for me
But I am lost, it seems
Except for the key
The key to the puzzle
The puzzle to find me
You could give up
You could abandon your cause
But if you did that
You would leave me
Leave me without hope
So you keep on searching
Hoping that I’ll be found
And now you are so close
So close to solving the puzzle
So don’t give up
And never fear
For when you finally find me
There will be tears
Tears of relief, of joy, of pain
That we’re finally back together
Back in each other’s arms
And now that we’re together
You will never let go

Young Man's NarrativeOnce upon a timeYoung Man's Narrative2 days ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
There was a young man
I guess he had friends
But that's where this began
They told him they loved him
They said "I'm always here"
But when he opened up
No one could bear
So he sat there and wondered
All about himself
And one day he pick up
Pen and paper from the shelf
Sometimes he still wonders
If he'll ever be free
And the only reason I know this
Is because that young man is me

A ja prowadzić się pozwolę
Zaufać tobie mogę wszak
Bo nie zaufam nigdy sobie
Z tysiąca szlaków, dróg i ścieżek
dzisiaj wybiorę tę jedyną
Nim dojść do celu przyjdzie nam,
pełne zwątpienia lata miną
I zapomnimy, co i jak
A inni ludzie nie pomogą
Bo czy na świecie było tak,
że miłość przyszła prostą drogą?

My Heart FliesIts amazing how quickly my perception can change.My Heart Flies4 days ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
What I once saw as normal with you now provokes the butterflies to stir in their cage.
Its clear I adore you, the world basically knows.
Its strange for some reason because I think I love you even more after being told “No.”
I hope I’m not awkward, I hope you maybe think its instead sweet.
When you and I are together, I wouldn’t at all mind going for a kiss on the cheek.
I’m not sure if that’s a limit though, is it alright to lay by your side?
I want to be by you so badly, simply because you’re still my best friend, I won’t ever put that behind.
It’s kind of hard to think over, I’m not sure how I feel.
I certainly know that I love you, I’ll be beside you until one of us keels.
You don’t mind me though, you’re aware I’m flushed and it’s fine.
Despite not returning the exact feelings, you make sure to tell me that you won’t ever leave me behind

My darling beast
Beneath the hide
And gnashing teeth
Neatly tucked away
Marred by sorrow
And daily pain
I see who you are
Despite what you deny
Yet I cannot blame you
For believe your own lie
But at the very core
In my eyes at least
You have a heart of beauty
Burried beneath the beast
Dont ConformAlways do youDont Conform1 week ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
Just please don't conform
Don't let them alter your view
Stand out against the norm
Do what makes you happy
Don't let them put your fire out
Look at what they're lacking
They don't know what they're talking about
Start a fire
And watch it burn
Pop a tire
And make 'em learn
Roll a blunt
And pass it around
Find a slut
And go to town
Cut your wrist
And watch it bleed
Make a wish
And follow your dreams
And start your life
Break the rules
And waste your time
Make your mark
And create a masterpiece
Fight against the dark
And hope no one sees
Do what you might
Just don't let them hold you down
Keep your head in the sky
And your feet on the ground
Winter in the OfficeI lay my shaking body and pounding heartWinter in the Office9 hours ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
Over many a sheet touched by my pen
All which I found lacking
Narcissistic or nerve racking
And I thought I'd never pour it out again.
My mind has became so heavily occupied
By this constant hustle and hysteria
With no brush broad enough
To vaguely state all that is tough
For me or any given subject, general area.
So scared of prying eyes to see when I am ready,
My fingers shake so frantic that my hand won't keep steady.
I've never wrote such raw things as meat.
Daniel, bodies are something you greet
Minds are things you pry.
When it is all over, cast the die.
You'll sleep now with every thing you dream.
Sudden awakeningAghast and panic-stricken I awoke,Sudden awakening16 hours ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
risen from a dark, deep slumber.
I found myself in an alien place,
once my home, but no longer.
What have happened I soon understand,
and a look in the mirror confirms my fear.
It shows me having grown even older,
with a little new wrinkle here and there.
Trembling, no longer able to stand
I fall back in my chair, into despair.
Why does this keep happening to me?
Is my life now finally beyond repair?
My Eyes.Beyond your look,My Eyes.1 day ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
I see the tears,
In your closed book,
I read your fears.
Behind your smile,
Hide broken teeth,
It takes just a while,
To see your grief.
With each word,
You spit your soul,
For each chord,
You play your role.
Closing my eyes,
Lets me see light,
Forget everyone dies,
Pull back from the fight.
But I cannot allow,
Going dead or blind,
Not then or now,
Them, I have to find.
My eyes are not mine,
Just a tool to see,
Those who are fine,
Fine just like me.
The River FlowsThe river flows into the hollow deepThe River Flows1 day ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
The seeds we have sown are what we reap
Our rigid destination unfolds
Into a world beyond that is so cold
Some embrace the fire within ourselves
Others fear the fire all too well
Today, I wonder how we survive
When the light some were born with has dimmed and died
I understand where the story goes
I understand that we all face our foes
Some of which we do not desire
While others we wait until they are our fire
The road to hell is indeed long
But not even God knows where we belong
Whether you become one with the earth and air
Or you rise into the heavens from the depths of despair
No one in this living universe can tell you who you are
Even if you don’t know you were born from the stars
The domino effect of life and death
Cannot compare to how you breathe until your last breath
So let this river flow into the hollow deep
In hopes that I may find my peace to keep
For even if I rest my soul eternally
The colors will shine for you in all harmony
