outside on the tender leaves.
I look through the windonw
on this cool summer night
caressed by a gently breeze.
I am missing you deeply inside
staring blankly, into space;
curtains blowing softly
against my skin
tears of love, run down my face...
Staring, for the longest while
never realizing the passing time.
Trying to find the pieces
to make it right
the words, to make it rhyme...
For how can I ever tell him
let the deepest part of me show?
That I'm lost without his love...
How will he ever know?
Compassion Of The Heart...Come over here and talk to me,Compassion Of The Heart...2 days ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
I told my little boy.
"Oh mom I'm mad, my brand new friend,
stole my only toy!"
"My dear sweet son, it pains me so,
to see you so upset, but there's one thing
you ought to know, one thing you won't forget."
"Please mother tell me, what it is
this thing I ought to mind? Can I buy it, is it new
or maybe does it wind?"
Ah my son it's nothing new, it's been around awhile
It's something that I always knew, that won't go out of style!
Son, it's nothing stores can sell, or put upon a shelf,
it's not a truck or Lego set, or some poor garden elf.
Son there's some that don't have much,
your friend and many more...but we will find another toy,
in another store!
It's sad of course your toy is gone, theft is never right...
but think of how your friend might feel, without a toy in sight.
Of course he may have borrowed it, cause friends they often do
I mean to say what is a friend? What does that mean to you
ReflectionsLike silent raindrops fallingReflections3 days ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
reflections, shown in tears.
The agonies and sorrows;
a picture painted clear.
Each one tells a story
in, such a way
compassionately, as to make you feel
what words could never say.
Watch them slowly falling.
Listen, with your eyes;
to the pictures, painted before you.
See them come alive.
So very colorfully dancing;
in full detail
one, by one...
On and on,
you can't escape.
The story is never done.

my thoughts, only I know...
Since the day I left you
it's been raining, constatly
for days in a row.
As I sit here watching
I quietly ask myself 'when'
will I begin to smile?
Will the sun start to shine again?
For love with you was beautiful
so beautiful....at one time.
You had a way with words
a way, of making them rhyme.
On and on, endlessly
your sweet voice filled the air;
making me feel the love you claimed
- though, it was never there.
Now here I sit remembering
sweet memories, of then...
Hating myself for loving you
and wanting you back again.
You WereYou were a moment of truth and beauty,You Were3 days ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
that once had touched my life.
You loved me, you really did;
now, I am paying the price.
Paying the price for ignoring the fact
you were so deeply involved;
as I selfishly left you alone with a problem
I knew only I could solve...
Now all that's left to my life is 'hope'
hoping and wondering,... if, and when?
Will those precious moments of truth and beauty
ever touch my life again.

angel of death.
I wear you tight to my knuckle
hold you close to my chest.
Black is your color
with a face I can't see.
I wait for your touch
to transform me...
Me into 'you'.
To die is to live.
Freedom in ebony
My song is a scream
my bed is a grave.
I sought peace and rest
but became I
...Now I can't go back
and my deepest of fears
flow quick from my eyes
transparent black tears.
'Hell', she runs deep...
Endless others like me
have sought an escape...
Where along the Line?The sound of raindrops fallingWhere along the Line?3 days ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
softly, throughout the night
has me, reminiscing
on the verge of light
sleep, and tender dreams...
Taking me back in my past...
I see myself in your arms again
in the place where we were last...
Lying there in your arms
as you soft, and gently breathed.
In the air is insecurity
the atmosphere, 'lonely'.
I remember feeling that 'this'
was the last night together we'd spend.
Why did I have to be so right?
And solitude take end.
To the love, we once had given,
as one; so generously?
Whatever happened to our love?
Where along the line did you lose me?

so I can not love you 'freely'.
Your ways are oppressive
of anger, and control;
'free', love has to be.
The death of an angel...
A broken rag doll.
I feel, I've fallen from grace.
For with hatred you have looked me
deep in the eyes,
while the hands I loved
slapped my face.
My fear, hides in the dark.
But against my will - 'honesty'
lights up the room
my broken heart.
I realize I've got to fly;
away with my feelings
to a bright place;
where love goes

My JackTime is...as always it was...My Jack3 days ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
as it remains... (though new)...
There was once when the days ran together
then suddenly, I met you.
...It's as though you were always here
when you're away, the time goes so slow.
There is doubt...and yet I know that you love me.
You smile, and my heart melts as snow.
You can never begin Jack, to realize the feelings
I feel, as I watch you sleep.
If I could capture the moments
the sight, smell, taste...
forever...of your masculine beauty.
Then I'd know what it is
to have Heaven on earth;
love shining, a silver lining all around.
You are the 'only star' in my Universe....
Hear our souls
Sing, to be bound.

or amber fields or grain;
than the beach at sunrise,
or a summers walk in ther rain.
Are 'your eyes'...they're lovely...
Something about them so sweet.
They are so kind, and understanding
gentle, warm and deep.
They seem to almost
look right through me;
to my secret place inside.
Exposing my every, fear and doubt
feeling me, with your eyes.
To the point, where I just can't take it.
In them, is ectasy...
They've seen my life
in a moment's time...
Ever so soft, and lovely.

All I wanted was a little.
He gave me so much more.
All I wanted was to touch him.
He in turn, touched me.

And so did he.

was, an honor to hold.
For yours was, an aesthetic nature
from day one, presented me in gold.
In the time that you gave
and the moments we shared
ours, was a strong bond.
A direct and peaceful
meeting of the souls;
of the hearts, of the senses,
of the minds.
M y heart cried out
with joy, with freedom
as silently, my spirit was freed...
to search out the truth
to find, to 'be with'
my alter ego, who came to be...
M y life and my friend
my reason for living
my sadness....You are are all of these.
For when you entered my life
I began to glow
with the recognition, of 'inner peace'...
Y ou were the light at the beginning of my rainbow;
now the truth
to be found at the end.
In the opened arms, of compassion
To 'be again'...God given.
You are the BeautyAll the beautiful things in life I think ofYou are the Beauty3 days ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
whenever, I think of you.
The Autumn sun at it's warmest;
the waters of the tropics
at their deepest blue.
under April rain,
the blossoms, in early May.
The birds, and the bees, and the locusts,
that come out on warm June days...
The sounds of small children playing
in the shade, in the dirty breeze.
The feel and the smell
of the morning sun
on my face,
warm and clean...
You are 'everything' that I feel...
In all I can touch
You're my inspiration; my guiding light.
In my world
you 'are' the beauty.
Broken FrameIt burnsBroken Frame3 days ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
The wind burns
With its knife
Reveals a darker
Side of my life
That you avoid.
Smiles you love.
Tears and tears
Falls from grey
Clouds on earth
My own name.
The words of mine
Are broken glass
That I expose
Trying to heal me.
But it’s impossible
I already died
When an angel
Forgot my heart.
I will end
A tragic existence
Don’t you dare
To do resistance.
My last words
My last feeling
Embraced by rain
I want to sleep.

Return from the darkness
Embrace all life as kin
And let peace touch your heart
The saccharine kiss of
Hope can make bitterness
Evolve on cynics' tongues
Leaving an aftertaste
Vanquished are the moments
Engulfed in innocence
Life does not let you live
In perfect happiness
Kisses of destiny
Either raze or nourish
A man's deepest beliefs
In pure honesty, I-
Repeat, breath love like air

His bony body is wrapped in a blanket cocoon
I sit by his side and read him out aloud,
the second chapter. He doesn't make a single sound.
His lids are swollen from too many whines,
I read the third line three, then four more times
He can't hear anything, lies still asleep
His lungs, they ache, his skin is drenched in heat
I put the book down, grabbed after my sleeve,
Whiped of the tears that I cannot keep,
¨One more week.¨ as the doctors said,
¨His chances are weak and his state is bad.¨
In the evening glow I felt him standing there,
Lurking in the shadows of silent care,
He has no horns like the bible tames,
Looking like the man every woman for prays,
¨Is there something I can do for you?
Something to take away all the cruel
feelings that you feel, tears that you cry
Can I make it better, baby, tell me one more time.¨
And the devil came to me and rubbed some wet streams from my face
Pushed them dry with
My ScarsThe scars cover my bodyMy Scars2 days ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
Reminding me of everything
They extend down my arms and legs
In neat, deliberate stacks
They look out of place
The ugly, twisting lines
Like demons on angelic turf
They dont belong
Up and down my arms
All across my thighs
I keep them covered
To keep people in the dark
Yet every scar tells a story
A story of the past
The maimed skin shows my battle scars
Reminds me of what I've overcome
But as time goes by
And new stories unfold
The scars fade away
With stories never to be told
My PanicMy panic is a coffinMy Panic1 day ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
My breathing is the nail
The onlookers are the muddy dirt
That buries me, to no avail.
My panic is the poison
That keeps me barely there
The shaking hands and bitten nails
Don’t let me give a care.
My panic is tumultuous;
It’s like an earthquake, so
Of course this means it just gets worse-
Whatever, I don’t know…
My panic is a demon
That I need to exorcize,
I just wish I could change the view
Of panic in your eyes.
Is This a Life Worth Living?I awake to this nightmare once again.Is This a Life Worth Living?3 days ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
The sky is filled with ash, and the sun is missing
From the once blue sky.
Death surrounds us like the plague.
Sadness and grief are constants.
Innocence was once a pleasant thing.
It was once believed a virtue.
But now that virtue is the trait of someone
Weak and unworthy to live.
It was once that innocent back when it was right.
Smiled filled my days, grief nowhere to be found.
I looked up at big, white clouds and thought,
“This is a life worth living.”
But as I look up at grey clouds, the same color as the sky,
I wonder if it’s worth it to go on.
As I hold a rifle in my hands, I wonder,
“Are they up there somewhere?”
The sound still rings in my ears
Of guns being fired; all of your screams
From my closed, hidden space I watched the pure white rug
Turn to red with your life fluid.
Years later, as I stand on this endless graveyard,
I still feel the feel the feelings of confusion and pain.

I forgot what the talking was even for
Because for me, we're in a happy place
Still have a smile that's on my face.
So, Please don't tell me,
Don't tell me you don't love me anymore.
They ask how things are going with me and you
I lie to them, I hope that you do too
Because they don't need to know,
Don't need to know it's true.
Please don't tell them,
Don't tell them you don't love me anymore.
We both know that it's through
I'm lying to them, I'm lying to you
I can't remember when it was true
I can't remember how I felt about you.
Still, Please don't tell me
Don't tell me you don't love me anymore.
It happened, gave a shock, yet I already knew
No more lying, it's what we had to do
Still I cried, even though you told me not to
No reward, no point, I had already lost you.
But I know you had to tell me,
Had to tell me you don't love me anymore

I try to comfort you

I may not be able to hold you
But I'm here through and through
Please don't push me away
Because I could not get any farther
With these many miles between us
I want you to be okay

It's been a long, long time
Have a seat there; here you are
Now, what's on your mind?
You weep, I see. Just hold me tight
And open up your heart
Grip me harder, I don't mind
Grind the page apart
Your tears are blotting up my lines
But you know I don't care
You've come to me so much before
And I've always been there
The lead will break, the paper rip
But don't stop...don't stop now
Your heart will break if you give up
...If you don't express somehow
