AndromedaAmongst the darkened skiesAndromeda2 days ago in Free Verse More Like This
Brightened by only starlight
Field & Sea.
Gravity is only an afterthought
Hilltops become ladders into the sky while
Inferior planets stare down upon the Earth
Jealous of such simplicity yet contemplating grandeur.
Keppler only thought of science
Linear, elliptical, movement…
Mythology had no such thoughts
Neptune & Nebulas both inhabit space
Orbiting across the lonely darkness
Probably never worried about mundane things
Questioning their existence
Right now or for all eternity such as us.
Shooting stars make us joyful while
Terminator is an otherworldly spectacle
Unknown to all those hidden in their houses
Various stars await us outside
Waiting to play like we did before
Xenagogue & inviting
Youthful but ancient curiosities.
Zenith induced euphoria continues until daylight…

You are ever-changing,
Eluding my grasp
As you dance

Around the world.

My heart is overcome
By your gravitational pull;

All I can do
Is to watch
Until you come full circle.

Late at night you look to the sky
a magnificent sight meets your eyes.
The moon glows brightly gold
it looks as thow blood had been spilt
on her golden surface.
Blood no drips over her it seams
to cover her in little streams.
She looks oddly sinister later tonight.
The blood lovely drips down her face
little drops softly lands upon the Earth.
Imagine this now open your eyes
look at the sight that beholds your eyes
everything you see comes from the sky.
You are the drop that fell from the sky
You are the drop that fell from the moon.
You are blest more than the rest

The Little FellowsI bought a house to fill another's needs,The Little Fellows3 days ago in Free Verse More Like This
just a simple little house to give them a shelter.
On an impulsive inspiration,
I also bought some food to go with the house.
Again, nothing fancy,
nothing that'd make a dent in my pocketbook,
just enough to provide them a meal.
Driving home through the snow,
I didn't dawdle,
My dinner was waiting,
and I had yet to give them my gift.
Once at home,
I stopped a moment in the snow,
then ran inside and cooked my meal,
took my seat by the fire,
and waited for my gift to be found.
It took a while,
but they soon came,
the little birds to make their claim,
and dislodging snow.
It was supposed to be spring,
but it still snowed,
delaying the birds from building their nests.
For that I felt sorry for the little fellows,
for with the snow they had no home.
Though free on wings,
they still suffer the weather.
The price of wings,
is that they're miserable, cold fellows in the snow.
NutritionWhat was once a tableNutrition3 days ago in Free Verse More Like This
of sweet greens and succulent meats
has become a table
with things scraped off one's feet.
Soot litters everything,
and the flavour suffers deeply.
Not even the rats eat the scraps,
as they scurry about creepily.
My muscles burn and my mind weakens
as I choke down this unworthy gruel.
I feel like a pig at the slop bucket,
being whipped just to be extra cruel.
I remember when I could enjoy my food.
It had such a variation of taste.
Now with the new products released,
it reminds me of plastics and paste.
I try to eat the final forkful of this failure
with all the strength I can muster.
No condiment could save this meal,
not even the most flavourful mustard.
My senses can only perceive
a scent of gunpowder and salt.
I immediate vomit up my supper
and curse whoever I can find at fault.
My throat feels scratchy and dries
with the bile and acid that now rise.
What's the point of keeping these supplies
when he who eats it dies?
Morning FogThe fog, it hangs lazily over the streets like a watery blanket pulled up to a childs chin. It swallows cars, buildings and people in its embrace, choaking light and eating darkness. It drifts just over the streets, like a cloud pulled down that just cant reach the ground. Its thick tendrels snake into houses, cars and alleyways, like the searching roots of a plant. It envelops bridges in thick vapor, the cars in the distance no longer visable in the mist. It casts a spell of mystery and silence over the city. Slowly, it lifts, motes of sunlight shining through, shafts of yellow sunlight. It vanishes without a trace, and the city opens its sleepy eyes.Morning Fog2 days ago in Free Verse More Like This

There may be a storm, a maelstrom of dark clouds obstructing the light from our vision,
or perhaps the damning pollution that ravages our lungs creates a muddy haze over the sky
But they’re there
They’re always there
No matter how dark the sky,
How chaotic our lives have become,
Even when we inevitably destroy ourselves,
And the Earth, Sun, everything we had ever known is gone,
There will always be that enigmatic fire embedding the ripe field of the universe
What do they mean to you?
What do you see when you look up?
More importantly, how often do you look up?
As children, we look not only at the beauty of nature,
But also at the celestial realm that hangs above us like a mural
And we wonder wonder wonder
However, too soon that is beaten into the ground.

Leaving soaked patches at every step,
Her presence holds a peace to some,
To others, a fear of destruction,
Swirls of blue and green make up her dress,
Trimmed with bright white foam,
Her eyes holding sunsets,
She waves of hair fall with liquid grace,
A grace only she could hold,
She is deadly as she is beautiful,
Her anger is a lethal strength,
Eyes of grey, glares of electricity,
She’ll shoot you down with a flick of her hand,
Drowning you in her long skirts,
Lethal and beautiful, that is what she is,
Holding both a sense of peace and danger,
She protects her family under her power,
Giving them life, letting them breathe,
This is her power,
This is her grace.

This story begins in a land far away, hopefully you know, as the time is today.
The power to hold, and the power to ignite, are filled with the wonders of beauty and sight.
Yet once was mine,this secret to hold, now it is yours, glitter and gold.
Into the fire, the warm hearth fire, the entities were thrown.
But hopefully, I sought for thee, that I would end up home.

A blink appears,

That the city,
so smog and dead.
Might call me back,
to rot me once again.

like the blood runs through my veins
my problems become washed away
down the twisting turning lane
the not quite quiet silence pulls me away
I ventured here for peace of mind
yet more than that I found
the things that I have learned
have changed my life around
all because I wandered here today
the serenity that nature brings
is music to the soul
and when I sit and listen
me and nature are a whole
what peace I've found here today
The Night DancersDancing, twirling, elegant feetThe Night Dancers1 day ago in Free Verse More Like This
They spin many colors
Just breaking but they meet
In time for the divergent gender.
Trying to avoid the silent clash
They all try to woe the other
But easily the lights will smash
And look up into sparkling eyes.
As the stars all twinkle applause
Earth watchers beg to see more
But just because the light withdraws
Doesn't mean they stop dancing.
As the vibrant neon night
Starts to fade away to nothing
All that's left of the dancing light
Is the ball room they leapt upon.
But just as the suns rays shrivel
Stars begin to peek their way out
And once more are the lights so civil
Who dance, and twirl, until they die.

that's killing you
it's the lack of love

Should I forgive the sins you have committed?
Certainly those can not be forgotten too easily
Day by day,
night by night,
I remember your sorrowful actions.
I can not express the unfurling actions you have made.
They are too much.
I can not handle them myself.
Should I run away and forget about your sins?
or should I forgive you and live with the sorrowed pain sketched upon my heart?
oh, my fragile heart, is it nearly broken.
it can not take much...
why do you do those things?
I wonder day by day why you have committed those sins
to the one you had loved.
did you not love me far enough as I loved you?
Perhaps vengance is the answer
but I simply can not.
Because I have loved you far for too long.
Those emotions plastered against my glass heart, prevent me from thinking
or doing awful things.
You saved me..
But yet, you ruined me.
You have failed me, my love...
I... forgive you..
For I have loved you far too long.
