I'm Alone...I'm alone once again, not by choice.I'm Alone...2 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
It's just that company eludes me.
I sit at my screen, typing away again--
with only a chilled drink for my friend.
I've stood alone in many crowded rooms,
never understanding the why or what for.
I only know that at the end of the night,
I return to a cold-and-lonely bed unmade.
They say I will heal and find happiness...
but how can they say that and not know me?
I long for what I cannot have, but why?
I guess that's because I'm human and alone.
I'm alone once again, not by choice.
I see the stain and feel the pain
that come with loneliness unescapable...
my own scarlet letter for my heartbreak.

You’re all torn out and cold
Even if all you see is darkness
You’re the bit of light that’s shining
And I know you don’t have control
But you can't just let go
Because if one day you do, you might lose yourself
Then I’ll be left alone, with no one to hold.

Through a half open window
the whole world can be seen.
A still frame of a timeless day
whose permanent shadows
can only be shifted
by the graceful arc
of Apollo's golden chariot.
Weeks pass in a blink,
months pass in a breath,
but the seasons arrive much slower,
flowing by so perfectly
that one cannot see the difference
in one moment compared to the next.
we can only say that time passes
Why?Seeing her body spread out underneath yours,Why?2 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
your hands on her tiny waist,
your lips on her neck,
my heart breaks.
The tears flow like an unchecked dam
as you try to explain.
Don't you see?
I don't want your explanations or excuses
You rush out of the room after me,
boxers barely staying on your slender frame.
But I can't look at you.
I cannot look at those eyes,
begging me to stay.
But you catch up to me,
as you normally do,
and spin me around to face you.
not what either of us expected
My palm connects with your face.
Harder than I've ever slapped anyone
and once I start, it seems, I can't stop.
My hands beat your chest,
and I only ask why.

Wish I could rid my pores of your stink.
Rid my ears of your silver words.
But you're a drug.
I know now that what I gave,
should not have been yours.
My body was not yours to touch.
My soul, not yours to see.
I gave you a weapon.
I shouldn't have showed you vulnerability.
My words should not speak of you.
You're nothing but a savage dog
looking for tail.
Regretfully, I gave you what you asked for.
Remember, you said you loved me too.

This is the time, when we step
our feet on idle soils and by our power
make the flowers grow.
This is the time, when we raise
our hands to the sky, and
paint it with colorful lights, and beautiful clouds.
This is the time, when we till the earth and
ourselves, and create change.
[to turn the dust into towering pillars,
and to turn nothingness into something-ness]
This is the time that we're all been waiting for.

"Hey Roxas?" Axel whispered in my ear.
"Yeah?" I whispered back. We were lying outside on a thin blanket, Axel's back against an enormous oak tree, his arms wrapped around my waist, holding me against him. It was dusk, twilight fading into complete nighttime.
"What are we?"
"I Don't know What do you want us to be?" I asked slowly.
"I I want us to be more than we are now more than best friends, if that sounds okay with you " he whispered.
"It sounds wonderful to me, Axel," I said lowly. I looked up to see a huge smile on his face, his arms automatically tightening around my waist.
"Look at the sky, Roxas," he whispered, wonder and awe filling his deep voice to the brim. I looked away and found the sky to have the last traces of pink and purple hinted in the few fluffy clouds left in the sky. Fireflies were starting to come out and one landed on the finger I stuck out for it to land on.

MeditationI couldnt stand it anymoreMeditation6 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
you were being difficult,
and you just stared at me
with those baleful eyes.
It wasnt helping at all--
that silent treatment
not telling me the problem
so I could do something;
to fix it.
You knew I would do
whatever it took
to make it right
I left the garage
(where you were)
and went into the house
(where you werent)
and gathered my things
A comfy collapsible chair
my cooler (with a six-pack and a sandwich inside)
fishing rod and tackle box
and-- I went fishing that day
I walked to the pond down the road
the one surrounded by huge cottonwoods
and left you alone in your stubborn silence.
I un-collapsed my collapsible chair
tied on a black doll fly to my line
and drank a beer without feeling guilty
because I had to drive you home.
The rhythmic cast and retrieve--
cast and retrieve
calmed me down and I could think
about the problems between us.
After lunch, I walked back home
to find you still in the garage

Like with thousand fine roots,
Each tree throngs to the depth
Like Mother Earth presented it
With sweet juices of life.
As it is deeply anchored in Her,
Rises to the light,
Under blossoms, under fruits,
Thankful shines and happily lives.
So you gave me power and blossoms,
Gave me fruits. So you are
My little Mother Earth,
I am deeply rooted in you!
The Cycle of SeasonsWinter's rage is overThe Cycle of Seasons3 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
Spring has awoken and
She wakes all around
The forest blossoms
Animals wake and soon
The world will awaken
Brown will turn to green
Spring is soon done
She returns to sleep
Quite soon Summer returns
From his journey into Earth
The world has been awake
All too long, Summer soon
Returns to the earth
Soon Autumn starts crying
The trees feel Her sorrow
The leaves turn orange
And they fall toward ground
Toward Summer and his kingdom
Autumn still mourns for
Summer's return to his journey
"Hush, All will be well"
Winter tells Autumn and
She falls asleep gently
The world falls asleep
And soon is quiet awaiting
The return of sleeping Spring
After the white wanders away

"Almost got it " America said to himself. He stood on tip-toe while he decorated. It was a busy time for him. Independence Day was coming up; his birthday! He had to be ready for big the day. His whole house, inside and out, was completely decked out in red, white, and blue. Star-spangled banners were everywhere. Deliveries of party food and gifts had been pouring in all day. The boxes were scattered all over the place. At the moment, America was standing on top of a huge ladder in his massive party room, putting up the finishing touch: red, white, and blue streamers that would hang down from a giant chandelier, and stretch out to the walls all around the large room. The streamers were so thick, that it was almost like the room was covered with a patriotic tent top, instead of a flat ceiling. America was struggling to get the final streamer to stic

The Stars AboveRunning with the wolves,The Stars Above3 years ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
I’m losing my soul;
I left my land and found them
Even though I was told
They are dangerous things,
These beasts of the night
From their thick, red fur
And the mesmerizing light
In their brown, puppy eyes.
They stalk the forest
And hide behind oaks,
Not stopping to rest
Until the alpha says so;
The night grows still,
And the world is calm-
That is, at least until
The wolves begin to howl.
Their chant is like a melody,
In sync as all the woods
Cries the same melody.
They turn to the moon
In time to see her shine;
They sing to her
Underneath swaying pines
And howl their love,
Their praise as one-
They wait for her say
Then turn and run
To find her all she requests,
To find all she needs;
She is their Mother
Within the canopy
Of twinkling, howling stars
Which once were wolves
Who fell from her grace,
Fallen, dying wolves
Who returned to the moon.
She takes their souls
And keeps them close;
She prays while she holds
That they will never forget
Their bright, f
