The ViodThe darkness is surrounding me.The Viod1 hour ago in Free Verse More Like This
Looking left and right is this dark depth of nothing.
I am not sure where to go because all i see is black.
Getting confuse just walking and maybe even in place.
I hope this is a dream, because i don't want to live here anymore.
Continue to just seeing all but nothing, and getting scared inside.
Just waiting to explode and scream out my inner demons.
Saying that this isn't so.
I don't want this to be my end.
Wondering and wondering to no avail.
Going more insane by the minute.
Trying to look deep inside me.
Hoping and striving for a light or a way out.
Starting to wonder more and more if their even is a way out.
But this walking doesn't do any good.
So i sit and wait, while my madness take over.
Nothing to see out here but on the inside.
Thinking about what i must have done wrong in order to escape.
While also thinking that their must be a light that will spark and shine the way out.
This can't be the end, so i guess i just have to look forwa

Tonight I smell the rain in the air
Feel the desert wind blow
All I know is that this kind of simple beauty is hard to come by
I see the painted sky and wonder...
Would you be mine?
Would you be the one to chase the sunset with me?
To follow the sun around the world so our days never have to end?
Would you drive for miles
Just to get a better view?
Would you live a little,
Forget the world
And run after a fading dreamscape on the western horizon?
Would you be brave to hold my hand
And just run?
Would you go with me
Eternal BreathA world lush with forestry,Eternal Breath1 day ago in Free Verse More Like This
Animals mingling amongst the brush,
Breathing with ease for millennia;
A world thick with smoke,
People working day and night,
Suffocating for decades;
A world where the smoke thins,
Streets bustling with people,
Able to breath once again;
Worlds where smoke is long gone,
Civilization thriving along with nature,
Breathing in peace for eternity.
HospiceSummer's dyingHospice1 day ago in Free Verse More Like This
I can feel the chill on her shallow breath
And the color's draining from her youthful face
She's bleeding out, I tell you
In red, yellow, and orange
And there ain't a single thing we can do
She'll want to be buried just like her mother
Laid to rest in a simple white coffin
No roses set on her grave
It's not warming
But it's final
Even as the rest of the world
Collapses into her absence
Perhaps she knows
Perhaps she's always known
Her Willow treeSlowly down the winding roadHer Willow tree1 day ago in Free Verse More Like This
where fallen angels dare not go
stands tall a willow
where it grows the soil is dark
where it stretches the sky is grey
the wind that rolls through its long swaying branches
calls his name
lovey, lovey don't you see
here lies the fallen angel's tree
silver branches grace the ground
softly, softly without a sound
here no storm can rumble past
here no demons come to laugh
so sweet lay down
here her spirit rests
her love, her heart is yours to keep
so let your soul be hers to hold

The Goat in the MountainsI once saw a goat that roamed the mountains,The Goat in the Mountains2 days ago in Free Verse More Like This
seeking water from a fountain
in the middle of a downturn.
The goat did roam the plains
and took pains
to eat the grass and grains
that was once seen
The goat roams the land
the grass sparse and sand
spanning the eyes and
little to go on with the band
The goat roams on aimless
yet cares nevertheless
for nothing could ever bless
a goat with a great mess
It had a sibling
both were at a great meeting
a stab killed the other fleeting
and he was let loose a-bleating
with its life already gone
with the rituals now done
it enjoys the setting sun.

that I don't know why.
They're wonderful swimmers,
but they cannot fly.
With black and white fur...
Whoops! I meant feather!
They always look cool

They're fast! And fun!
And badly they sing!
But that doesn't matter
O, little penguins
From Emperor to Blue
I'll ask this question:

by Tricia Pattinson
On a slope of emerald
Soon to white
Your clouds drift and shine
Down on this earthly paradise
Like silver etchings
Of: "I love you all without conditions, My silly children!"
Across a true blue sapphire swath
A blanketing of secure jewelry floating by
Thrown over a sleeping child
Who dreams playing unafraid
In forests and oceans
Your hand has shaped
Who could live without some clouds?
Reminders of unconditional love
Floating along and above
Delicate silver etchings
On a sapphire sky
Masquerading as clouds
Blotting the full nature of the Sun's fire
Prolonging our vision so we might read
With our own eyes Your true message
"I love you all without conditions, My silly children!"
As read from an emerald slope
Soon to be white.
RainLooking into the sky,Rain2 days ago in Free Verse More Like This
I watch every tear fall
ever so slightly from the heavens.
"Why are you sad?"
The sky answers with a thunderous boom.
The sun hides away,
almost as if it were afraid of the sky.
It's so cold.
I stand in the rain,
in wait for the sun to come out again.
In the meantime though,
I let the tiny drops of ice
shatter on my bare skin.
Warmth no longer exists.

the raining force drowing out cares;
a humid whisper lingers by your ear
as the embrace trickles down your skin.
Soaked by a seeping sort of carress,
sinking in, softening seduction.
A sudden flash and her voice thunders
vibrating your very soul
A tumulous torrent of angry pounding
besieging you with her whipping barrage,
leaving no chance at defence.
Her unseen hands clutch at your hair and clothes
as they force you this way and that;
Abruptly it leaves you
now frightented and cold
drenched in the wrath of her scold.

was nothing, followed swiftly
by everything. Gases spinning,
expanding and cooling, becoming
of burning spheres, billions of suns.
Warmth. Light. Not truly a void at all.
Molecules were cooked, the lifeblood
of life, of all we are, baked
in the heart of solar infernos.
See the stars.
See where you and I and all of us were born.
The cosmic womb.
A creation story too grand for
dusty scrolls and songs of "Glory,glory";
our true nature.
Not only born of stars, of twinkling, blazing cosmic lights,
but also part of them.
Not just in the universe, but of the universe.
We look to the farthest reaches,
peering over the edge of infinity, and we see
not something other. But something of us!
Connected. We belong.
Not born to depart to heaven,
but alive to exist
With epochs ahead for our kin.
When The Sky ShiftsWhen the moon grows tiredWhen The Sky Shifts2 days ago in Free Verse More Like This
It goes to sleep,
The stars retreat from the world.
They watch over the moon as it lays
With the horizon as a warm blanket.
The sun takes its place
And lights up the sky.
And the sun watches over the world.
They call this the day.
When the sun grows tired
It goes to sleep,
The stars return to the sky.
As the moon takes its place
The sun wraps itself
In the blanket the moon used
And it closes its eyes.
And the moon watches over the world.
They call this the night.

UnderstandingIf we all practiced understanding from all sides, there would be an abundance of peace. We understand monkey behavior and the monkeys we observe sometimes fight and kill one another over territory for survival. They are blind to a system that we understand and can avoid. Humans are a little more chaotic, however, and can kill for reasons other than survival. Some are keeping the peace while others are starting wars over religion. Perhaps they're fighting for survival as well. The survival of a belief. All human actions can be understood and explained. That understanding will eventually bring change and progress. The more we understand the source of our problems, the quicker we can make the problems disappear from humanity.Understanding3 days ago in Free Verse More Like This

even though those who hear it
to cover their own senselessness
yet in the silence
revelations are found.
could it be more
that is said?
I open up and do confess,
The truth to my unhappiness.
The winds of change they blow me down.
It's when a dream
in the mind
of a forgotten man
that the breeze
changes its speed
and brings a storm
It is then that all
which has been, fades
and leaves behind it
the obscure paintings of
from the corners of
a fragile and weary mind
show the grace and beauty
of a long-forgotten
And the devastation in the storm's wake
Leaves a soul bared, naked and vulnerable
And I don't know if I could ever come around
To see the world as it was before.
When the winds of change came crashing through my open door
That storm of truth,
Can blow you down
(Up and away)
That storm of truth
