God Was There When I was alone and cryingGod Was There2 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
God was there
When I was distraught and without hope
God was there
When they talked about me
And made me feel worthless
God was there
When they called me stupid
And said I wasn't good enough
God was there
God was there
When I was alone
And wanted to die
God was there
When no else was
God was there
When I had no one
To call friend
God was there
When she died and left me
God was there
And He's still here
Ol' Brave Charles RobereThe dusk begins to settleOl' Brave Charles Robere3 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
Upon the sea of gold
The auburn glare of the sun
Lighting the course
Of the brave and bold
Tides turns to waves
And winds turn to storms
The trumpets of death
Sound the call to bring the dead
To Poseidon's throne.
Across the vast ocean
A boat sales alone
Carrying men of heart
The loyal crew feel danger
In their tired bones
Dirt on their faces
Rope burns on their hands
They fight the waters
With the hope
They will return to land
Led by their Captain
'Ol' Brave' Chares Robere
And swashbuckling extraordinaire
He steps out from his cabin
And stands proud upon the deck

Im tired and I have no fight.
Dark poetry, dark words
His photos were a bright spot.
The light attracted me.
Water and sky get my favor
So I look and I savor the light, the beach, the sky.
Photographer, come and laugh with me.
Laughter and light is how I think of your art.
What can I say?
You came and laughed with me
you were a bright spot in my day.

The Brethren SentinelLo! In the heavens reared a throneThe Brethren Sentinel2 years ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
In misty skies there stand alone
The brethren sentinel aloft
Enshrouded by the verdure soft
— Envelopped in the verdure soft —
Alone they stand, alone:
And on their shoulders do they bear
— Approached by many a winding stair —
And on their shoulders brothers wear
A haubergeon of mail.
Of red and gold the armour gleams
Recalling plainly, as it seems,
The blood of battles gone and past
The gold of diadems recast
— The golden crownery recast —
Still in their mem'ry gleams
Goes not the ringing eagle's call
Amid the ghostly billowed pall
Rings not the eagle's throa
Vivid DreamsThere are moments when my fears seep into my dreams and grip me in my sleep.Vivid Dreams2 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
They awaken me with a start and pound aggressively on my heart.
I can't understand it and it doesn't make sense, but I feel like I'm balancing on the edge of a fence.
Just one small push is all it should take to remove me from this painful dreamscape.

To all those people out there who think you see your life flash before your eyes when you're going to die, I have some major news for you; it doesn't happen. How do I know? Because I've had seven chances to get the replay of my life, and it hasn't happened. Not even once.
I grew up in a small town. There were no secrets. At least, that's what everyone said. That's what everyone thought. But behind closed doors, there were plenty of secrets. Secrets I lived with everyday. Secrets that made up my life. Secrets that were my life.

That are not mine
Irony between illusion
Sever the ties
I speak its name
I spit it out
In the fireplace
I burn nevertheless
With frozen flames
Heating my heart
It has been time
Since we have met
But ever since I talked to you
I knew you where special
Every message makes my heart jump
Longing for the next word
Whatever it would be
I gave a ear to listen
Time is not our friend
Nor our guide
And I rot
In dreams and desires
Craved by my mind
The wish is the father of the thought
I shall long forever
And never forget
What you meant for me
DifferentPeople keep disappointing meDifferent3 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
One by one, every single day
Giving me the chance to make up my mind
To see the truth in things and stop dreaming life
Seeing how things go wrong,
But not being able to change it
Make my mind the strongest feature of me
Use it, every minute, every second
See how things could be, how they should be
But pay a price for it
Maybe I was meant to realize this
Maybe it's a gift that's been given to me
Or perhaps I was made this way
It isn't I who is different than the rest
It's the rest, that's different than me

Letter of HopeI used to be so depressed all of the time. No matter what anyone did or said I would still be sad. I just couldn't pull myself out of it. I couldn't shake off those feelings.Letter of Hope3 years ago in Letters More Like This
All I ever did was mope around and wonder what it would be like if I were dead. On a few occasions I even tried to kill myself.
I overdosed on my pain medication and my muscle relaxers. I even slit my wrist. Obviously, all of my attempts failed since I am writing to you now.
I realize now that I was being unreasonable. I had convinced myself that I was alone and unloved. I didn't believe when people told me that they cared.
I distanced myself from everyone around me,

Show me that your love for me is true.

I turn on the radio and all I get is noise.
I see the snowflakes falling, and somehow, I hear your voice.
The snowflakes are falling,
Falling in a pattern most bizarre,
Much like you.
I can see your face, as the tiny frozen flakes
I see your mouth form those words,
That I've heard so many times,
And stopped so often to wonder, to ponder,
"Enjoy every sandwich."
You said "keep me in your heart,"
Told me to never loose the flame
Of the live that I live.
You said that you were "tied to me."
Hell, you never lied to me,
When you showed me the ugly sort of life.

The VoidThe Void2 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
And as the sun sets behind the sea,
No words shall be uttered,
No sound shall be heard,
Just the silence of it all...
Slowly eating away your soul
As you lose for the last time,
Both the way out
And sanity disappear...
Leaving you with a complete void.
This emptiness turning into
Your final asylum
A place of restrain,
And ultimate void,
Losing the final grip
To your once loved sanity.
Screaming into the utter void,
No sound is heard,
Fighting away this poison
Is just not an option.

An endless fall,

in this lonely heart of mine
Nothing could intrude on me
lost in space
guns in chase
ready to fire
They caught up to me
brought me down
now I'm in a downward spiral
To my bed
where I have layed my pieces
I have to pick them up
take them away
to a box where they will stay
I left it all behind me
never gonna save me
I know it's coming back
years will pass
I will forget
That Night Intro. Her body was cold, still, and wet. Her glossy eyes showed tears that had trickled down her cheeks before. Her neck showed purple and black splotches from where the grip of the man, strangled her pleading yelps away. There was frozen blood creeping down to her hands, clogging up the rips and scratches of the animals who had later feasted upon her scrawny body, showed evidence of life before. Her clothes, soaked and torn open, were lying beneath her body. Her unlaced shoes, torn with holes from overuse, were lying beside her head from when the man had beaten her with them. Her hair was long and tangled. It was covered in pine needles andThat Night Intro.2 years ago in Introductions & Chapters More Like This
the Taste of loveI wonder, how does love taste?the Taste of love2 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
The sort of love found with a lover,
a lover of your body and your heart.
Is it sweet? Does it flow and coat like honey?
Is it spicy? Hot and potent and unforgettable.
Is it bitter? Does it eventually spoil and leave an awful aftertaste?
Is it rich? Cloying and overwhelming, needing dilution.
Is it sour? Can it twist your insides and still leave you wanting more?
Is it juicy? Bursting with flavor, overflowing with goodness.
I ask because, truly I don't know.
I've never quenched my thirst from the well of love.
I've never experienced its flavor on my tongue,
fed to me by the hand of a lover.

Knits the broken
Pieces back together.
Time fades quickly,
As dawn rises.
And it burns.

Little by little
And I am lost.

With my needs,
And I am undone.
In the end:
Confusion creeps in,
Sanity slips away,
A shell remains.
Love is crazy,
For crazy people.
Smoke and mirrors.
