to complete the circle
to form new beginnings and fuse old starts
maybe i will light the world on fire.
does the snow fall because it wants to touch my skin?
did it fall just to see what happens down here
instead of up there
where everything is illuminated in crystalline clouds and pure rain water?
maybe i will submit to compassion
and tear up every time i hear the birds sing and every time the wind pulls my hair.
do i have devotion for my life? my god(s)? my mind?
you know that feeling of stretching as far as you can
rooting your heels to the ground and reaching tall as trees to touch the sky?
that's kinda what it feels like.
GodSomeone, once, asked me,God5 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
"Do you believe in a God?"
and as I sat there,
The sunshine gleamed pleasantly
through wispy white clouds.
I thought to myself,
in that one moment, "Surely,
God is everywhere!"
Even for pagans,
who celebrate the seasons,
and each passing moon...
God exists for all,
regardless of the image
God presents to us.
So, with this knowledge,
I could smile as I replied,
"God believes in me!"
How Long Is ForeverHow Long Is Forever11 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
How long is forever?
How can it ever last?
How can we look so forward
Without looking at the past?
Does it bleed through day?
Does it weep at night?
Does it tear through emotion?
Does it really have much might?
I suppose it\'s real
Though I can never tell
They tell you they\'ll be there
And leave after the bell
Maybe it\'s the beauty
That\'s infinite in today
But their wisedom upholds all
And their exterior does decay
They say they will hold you
They say they\'ll never let go
You turn your back for a second
And they\'ve become someone you don\'t know
But how can there be forever?
If you just walk away?
Without even breathing a word
You just turn and leave me strayed
So until I find this \"forever\"
I will wander proudly alone
Never giving into this reality
Never having a proper home

Your EyesYour Eyes11 years ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
The Earth and all her jubilee and might,
and self-inflicted hardship overcome,
and doctrine forged to settle wrong and right
no more can tell her doctors from the Sun-
with science and scripture stirred and made the same,
and idols cast from dirt and lust and gold,
and sunlight ploughed and passed a clever name,
and beauty culled and bought and used and sold,
thus, sun and beauty bound and in a mew,
as each one treads your lashes and your hair,
but glossy doctrines cast and mould and skew;
and you can't tell the sunlight from the glare-
and don the golden makeup and disguise,
as lashes keep the sunlight from your eyes.

The Truth About ForeverThe truth about foreverThe Truth About Forever8 years ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
Is that there is no truth at all
It was just a turn-a-phrase
That left me so enthralled
The truth is truly nothing but
A fictional fantasy one must learn
To believe in quixotic theories that
Like love, one must begin to yearn
For without that love there is no hope
And without aspiration one cannot thrive
Without an emotion so ardent and pure
I find it so difficult to feel alive
It's sad but true, this lesson I've learned
About losing someone so close
Someone who said he'd be with me forever
Someone in whom I was so engrossed
The truth about forever
Is but a mere dream in my head
And all the longing I felt for you
Has left me hanging by a thread.

I tried to listen
To the things you said
But I couldn't stop the voices
Inside my head
I thought it would end
If I could forget
I tried to pretend
And that I regret
Because it's eating me alive
It never ever goes away
It's strangling me inside
And suffocates me more each day
It's driving me insane
I can't take this anymore
I hate myself, I'm a useless bitch,
A filthy fucking whore
I can't see anything but red
I hate this place inside my head
I'm fucking crazy just like they said
I'd kill myself, but I'm already dead
'Cause I ignored it for too long
And I believed in my own lies
Now it's too late, my soul is gone
You can see it in my eyes

Air grows thinner, the higher we are held.
Granite pedestal grows beneath our feet.
Loneliness creeps into my veins,

I can remember the first step

There were so many of us;
we could barly fit on the platform.
Meeting for the first time
as our parents lifted us on.
Five years old,
the first day of the ascension.
the platform grew higher;
growing from the base, pushing us upward.
We became different during this stage;
but still together.
Still parts of an unbroken whole.
Eight years on that platform,
Time held us together.
It's ironic that our happiest moment together
happened to be our last.

our true power in numbers was ever diminished.
People began to jump from the platform;
some struck the floor,

Some called the onset of winter a harsh thing, others called it beautiful. The city streets and sidewalks were peppered lightly with the fluffy whiteness, which had gradually increased as the days had gone by. Only the bravest of drivers took to the streets, and that was only after the plows cleared the worst of the snow away. A few well-rugged up furs walked the streets and local parks, children and adults, the former playing in the snow while the latter grumbled about the cold. Many people elected to stay indoors, to keep warm and relax instead of risking the low outside temperatures, but that was not why some people were still within their domiciles, as the occupant of one apartment block loft demonstrated. It was a place of wooden floors and sparse, plastered walls, a small neat kitchen and a bed pressed up against the wall where the apartment's sole great window was.

You use to tell me
everythig would be okay
You use to hold me
and wipe my tears away
You use to
take my hand
and tell me that
that I've been through
and that I could put
my trust in you
So many times you looked
into my eyes
and told me
nothing more than lies
So much bullshit
you had me believe
Like when you said
you'd never leave
And I trusted
every word you spoke
it was all a joke
I don't know how
I couldn't see
that you would soon
be leaving me
I was such a fool,
I should've known
that I would always
Because no one
can stand to be with me
All this time
I meant nothing to you
Wish I could forget
I ever knew you
I lost myself when you left that day
Because you swore we'd never sever
But I know now, it's true what they say...

Pearl HarborOne bright morningPearl Harbor8 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
In early December
Got shot to cinder
We took a blow
That shook our cores
Shattered our minds
And entered our lore
On December the seventh
Japan dropped by
To bomb our ships
And take our lives
We received no warnings
Just stood and died
As those crazy Japs
Took our lives
So many died
Black smoke boiled 'round
To many of our boys
Were placed in the ground
That day we remember
With tears and pictures
With ones we don't know
And hold our chins high
Say "Never again"
Move on with our lives
Make a Japanese friend
Smile and wave
Here in America
We don't forget.
We hold our heads high
Fly our flag higher
Salute to authority
And always Remember
PenumbraIt's rather awkward to wake up to the realization that you aren't sure if you're awake.Penumbra8 years ago in Fantasy More Like This
Half-existent, she slowly rose up from the ground that she assumed that she had been sleeping on. The ground was gray. It couldn't be said whether it was hard or soft, rough or smooth, or even bright or dull; only that it existed, and she knew this only because she wasn't floating or falling. As she balanced herself on her feet, it supported her weight, but she couldn't say whether it was hard or if it was soft. You might be able to say that she was drifting, though, as even though she felt like she was walking forward, there were no objects or landmarks to prove that she was moving anywhere.
Above her, the sky was a silent, muted purple. It loomed over her, offering her no help in her confused state. At the same time, it seemed to assure her that it was alright to be confused, because there was nothing to worry about in that land of nothin

She couldnt take it anymore, she couldnt play like this
As she walked up the steps, she spotted a rectangular package
Could it be?
She unlocked the door, turned off the alarm, and walked back to grab the package
She stared at it for ages, debating whether or not to open it
Curiosity overcame her, and she opened the package
Inside the package was a long black dress. The dress for her dance
She went into her room and stripped down to her undergarments
She slipped the dress over her head and admired herself in the mirror
A smile grew on her lips as she twirled and danced
The past forgotten
She thought how all the girls and boys at school would stare
How he would look at her
Then the smile left, taken over by a frown
He was no longer hers
He left for another
She quietly slipped off the dress
It went back onto the hanger
Back into the plastic cover
Back into the package
The moment was over

And i'll never be strong enough to go and pass you by.
And i'll never be strong enough to not break down and cry.
Your hands aren't mine to hold, your lips not mine to kiss.
Your body not mine to love, your soul not mine to miss.
My lungs are sore, i've been up all night.
At loss of breath because i know i'm right.
I need you so much, i love you, i miss you.
She doesn't deserve you, not like i do.

But now it's hitting me, i'll move on, i'll live.
I can't say i'm mighty standing here in crimson and clear,
Blood sweat and tears as i stuck with you through the year.
Only for you to stab me in the heart, then again in the back
You're just another modern day teenage heart attack.

is as velvet as the breath

I am washed clean by my own blissful tears,
a transparent baptism in honor of you, my Bodhisattva,
whose aura of alluring brilliance
gently coaxes me to my knees in prayer.
O, my Avalokiteshvara,
You dared give me this precious gift:
A lotus seed you placed upon my heart,
that it may enter me,
grow through me,
and fill me with a tangible soul...
A soul that longs with strained patience, to be suspended aloft by your radiance again.
