Ice cream, pavement
Melting dreams down the grille
Blue eyes crying, a hug from Mom
But still leaving a sense of loss
No kind words can comfort
Nor ease the pain
Little messagesJust when another lonely day, starts to bring me down,Little messages1 day ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
I could be out shopping or just strolling around.
I think of you of course, as I always do.
My dearest love, I´m still missing you.
My sadness, it begins to show,
it is no use, the tears just flow.
Then your spirit seems to talk to me,
cos everywhere there´s a message I see.
Messages on book covers, tell me" I should trust in me".
even on some bath salts, says "don´t worry be happy".
"Keep your chin up", "let your angel always be your guide".
It´s then I know you´re still there for me, always by my side.
The tears still flow, they always will
but now I know you are with me still.
It brings me comfort, it picks me up.
I know for sure, I´ll always have your love.
Poetry by Suzanne karbach November 2014
StargazingThe stars are watching me tonightStargazing20 hours ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
as I am gazing at them too,
and imagine what it feels right
beside the one I love; It's you.
I picture you as one of them,
illuminating from afar.
I'll gaze at you, like precious gem,
and dream that we will be at par.
And Everything Was BlueAnd everything was blueAnd Everything Was Blue5 days ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
but nothing was sad
How was I supposed to know
it would (almost) be you?
It was just my mind
I just liked your jeans
and your eyes
And then you walked
through the doors
taller than before
It was just my heart
And I just liked your eyes
and your smile
Then I learned your ways:
one hand on your hip, one knee bent
the face of a tired man
and the veins of a kid
There's a roar behind
your tightrope lips
That can disarm, strengthen
a silence, a shyness
a jazz 'n' blues aorta
the definites before
"...kinda", "...maybe", "...sorta"
It was just my head and heart
not knowing what to do
I just loved
being near you
It started with a flash
of teeth to
a tease, a salute,
then everything was blue
My Dark SideThe dark side of mine has awakenedMy Dark Side1 week ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
The sleeper inside me has taken over
Do no take her for nothing mistaken
Better leave now, do not get any closer
All I can do is hope I can survive
Survive her darkest moods and moves
I try, but hers is a strong drive
She ruins everything with her hooves
Make sure you get out of her way
She will destroy me for certain
But you could be spared, run away
Just disappear from here you gorgon
I Failed YouSo many waysI Failed You3 days ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
This could have gone
With a fake dawn
Is this our fate?
Is it too late?
To cut the tether
I've failed you
I wish I could atone
For what I put you through
But I’m already alone
Never Let goA few words is all I needNever Let go4 days ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
I swore the knife wouldn't make me bleed
But I fear the time has come at last
For me to return to the past
The one place I cannot survive
At least then I wasn't alive
The last place I want to be
All I want is you with me
I want nothing but your smiling face
The one thing I desire is your embrace
Is there any way to let me know
I swear I won’t let you go
The Light Is An EnemyStruggling through the lightThe Light Is An Enemy1 week ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
The brightness blinding the eyes
Longing for the darkness..
That once concealed
Who knew that the sun
Was a terrible thing to live in
Under the light of the moon
Mistakes could be hidden
And emotions couldn't be felt
Or even seen..
The starless sky
Is revealing all
All those feelings fighting to be put on show
Who knew that the sun
Was a terrible thing to behold
I know.I see those moments that we were happy.I know.1 day ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
Forever encaptured by that oaken framed glass.
Those memories shall forever be locked away in my golden vault.
But I think the issue is that we won't have them anymore.
Our tea scented home would never be crowded with our aroma.
Our burning fireplace won't be relit.
Those chairs outside would never again be used.
We both have a different road.
One that has million of paths, and thousands of passages.
But something is odd.
Even though I know this..
I still hope and crave for a day where I can hold onto you.
I mourn and lament for that one moment where our hands would brush..
But our lives are different.
And I am letting go.
ExistI met you before we could driveExist3 days ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
I've liked you longer than you realise
I noticed you before fancy phones
I noticed you before fancy clothes
I saw you when you said you were nothing
I saw you when you were my everything
I was the one to say things will get better
When you were the one feeling under the weather
I was the one saying it'll be alright
When you text me in the dark of the night
I was the one who poured out my heart
My word were wasted so I turned them into art
I met you before we could drink
I loved you more than you think
I noticed you before you had money
I noticed you before you called her 'Honey'
I saw you when she cheated and lied
I saw you through tears than you cried
I was the one saying she's not worth your time
Secretly wishing that you were mine
I was the one with a drunken kiss
Stupidly hoping it could be more than this
Because to me you exist.
I Wasn't Enough (Couplet)With one eye open,I Wasn't Enough (Couplet)4 days ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
I'll walk into the abyss.
I long to feel your touch.
I'll just keep hopin',
To again feel your lips.
How I love you so much.
My heart is broken,
Because you left me amidst.
Wishful thinking full of trust.
I feel the blood flowin',
From this perfect tryst.
My heart has lost its slough.
You say you must be goin',
Know I will forever miss.
Because for you, I wasn't enough.

through the closed door
a gentle knock
to say once more
you're not alone
in the midst of this pain
I know you can hear
there's no need to explain
so just quietly receive
that you need to exist
no longer is your place

In MourningTake my thoughts away and hold me stillIn Mourning2 days ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
keep me in your arms until day, the night is still.
My head upon your shoulder as I weep,
by my side you must stay until my heart is still.
I want to lose myself within the circle of your arms
comforted by the words you say when all is still.
You murmur within my hair a gentle lullaby
in silence I pray for death to be still.
I cleave to your warmth, inhale your essence,
wind begins to sway it is no longer still.
The Savage Setting SunI stood upon a growling rockThe Savage Setting Sun1 day ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
Amidst a rabid sea,
And looked into the shutting eye.
That glared right back at me.
And as I stared into the eye,
This savage setting sun,
I could not help but shed a tear
To see its life was done.
The glint of red upon the waves
Did slowly seem to slip
Behind the gold horizon like
A fleeting funeral ship.
And in a feral funeral chant
The ocean seemed to roar.
I faintly heard the pipe of Pan
That howled upon the shore.
The wind joined in this symphony.
It howled with dancing Pan
And echoed through the hallowed earth
And through the hearts of man.
The innocence of savagery,
Barbaric songs of yore
Like wild Cuhullin cried
And then were heard no more.
The glowing eye was finally shut;
The ship had finally gone
Far, far away into the deep
And silent great beyond.
The waves then ceased their feral chant,
And Pan his flute’s sweet trill;
The wind then ceased it’s mighty howl
And all the earth was still.
I stood amidst this silence and
I beat my throbb
Wash out the colorsThe red in front of my eyesWash out the colors5 days ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
A signal, a warning
I look deep into the cracks
I want to bind
What was never there
Please be whole, just once
It's getting blue inside
I can't be your missing piece
The holes are growing and I gave it all
I'm not enough and then too much
You can't tell
The things you never knew
I just feel so cold and lonely
We wash it out, we see grey
Failures all the way
You don't have holes
I'm no puzzle piece
As we can't see
There's nothing we need
The darkness, deep black
Hidden in the unsaid, undone
It existed anyways
But if we play mute and blind
It can be forgotten, maybe
Oh, How I LongOh, how I long to really love again!Oh, How I Long5 days ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
I realize I've only felt it once:
Oh, years ago, a dying child then
I was, and yet nothing felt like that bunce.
Oh, how I long for love's sweet subject
To waltz back in my life and make me feel!
To write and feel nothing is mere neglect
To poetry; emotions must be real.
Oh, how I long for love to heal myself
From all my scars and sins that mark me so!
I hate that my own heart is on a shelf,
Wasting away with nothing left to show.
Oh how I long to be in love's embrace!
If only I was worthy of the chase...
SlippingI’m losing my gripSlipping5 days ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
I think I might slip
I wouldn't be afraid of the fall
If I knew I was so tall
I’m so close to the ground
But these walls are fun to pound
I don’t want to let go
Of everything I know
The world is wild out there
I don’t know if it can care
But I’m willing to take a leap
Nothing is ever cheap
My destructionYou proclaim you love me,My destruction1 week ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
You embrace my heart
Deceit is plain to see,
It shows at game's start
I love & care for you,
I'm begging & crying
For I wish you felt as I do,
Inside I'm broken & dying
Strength will fade, & I will leave,
But wait, what's under your sleeve?
JourneyDreaming in twilight and beautiful silenceJourney1 week ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
Watching flames bounce off of bathroom tiles.
I've lost my heart and my recollection
Chasing down nothing and running
Hiding in trees and in sheltered waterways
Awakened caving ceilings within a soul
Desperately trying not to stop and you
want me to stop trying.
HateI hate you with all my heartHate6 days ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
The lust covers my lips
Fear is on your side
Don't you ever forget about me
I got it all
I'm left with nothing
And I want the best for you
I hate you with all my heart
So, scream my name
As if it had a meaning
You'd deserve the suffering, I know
Come real close
I'll warm your hands, ease your pain
Because I want the best for you
I hate you with all my heart
I don't want you to smile,
But don't you ever cry
I'm on your side,
As far away as I can be
I'll rip you apart
And mend your cracks
I shouldn't want the best for you
I hate you with all my heart
And all the tears you made me shed
I want to hurt you so bad, you're gonna break
But don't you ever see my thoughts and wishes
Or the pain you caused me
It wouldn't be the best for you
My MistakeI try to hold it in,My Mistake9 hours ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
But it all slips out.
He said one word,
He had one doubt.
I couldn't think,
I didn't stop,
There was a mess,
Blood on the mop.
I said I was sorry,
I didn't mean to,
But that wasn't right,
That wasn't true.
My anger flew out,
I couldn't restrain it.
My fist came up,
I really did mean it.
His broken nose
And bloody face,
They were proof
Of my mistake.
ConfessionsAt 9 I became a witnessConfessions1 day ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
To a crime I could not testify against.
Because accidents happen, right?
I was 10 when I convinced myself
That it was okay.
At 11, I became the victim
But there were no witnesses to
Aid me with the case.
It was then I realized that maybe
There's nothing anyone could do.
At 12, I had realized
That accidents can
At 13 I had seen it happen.
At 14, I began to think
That maybe they'll stop if
I become just like them.
But I made a mistake and couldn't
Bring myself to do such things to others.
At 14, I realized that
Life isn't a fairytale, and

The Last WishThere was a man who traded his lifeThe Last Wish2 days ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
For a single wish payed by a knife
Tomorrow was her Birthday
but she must be kept away
From he who longs for touch of lover lost
Still for her smile he'd pay steepest cost
He struck a deal so forbidden
that from mortal eyes the instructions were hidden
For a man to summon the God of Fate
He quickly became the human that all Gods hate
He attempted to trade his life away
if that smile on her face would always stay
The God asked why he would do this thing?
and Joshua said, "To her lips a smile bring?"
"There is no sight more beautiful than her
that smile alone could make the coldest heart stir."
"Yet why do this thing at all?
She will never truly know the reason you fall."
"I fall today, so that she may rise
I seek no gratitude from her eyes"
"I cannot understand this mortal love
emotions do not exist in the realm above"
"Know that it is her happiness that creates mine
I do not care the cost, I shall be
