Shedding a light within our dark
To make each day much better spent
To guide us to the place we're meant
This hand to hold when feeling blue
A hug that's passed from me to you
Soft kisses to brighten up your day
A love that's shared in every way
Souls in tune to a song birds sing
A gentle comfort that love can bring
The melding of two into what's just one
A brighter glow to each days sun
These gifts of love we'll share complete
Upon this day when we will meet
Sweet Valentine will you be mine?
From this day forward, till end of time..
As Time Slips By..Rescue me from this sedated sleepAs Time Slips By..3 years ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
As time slips by in a hurried creep
Ticking away the days and nights
losing momentum as reality bites
Spinning and churning the moments past
Seeing no end but going too fast
A second, an hour or even a day
To much to do, so much to say
Taken for granted and mourned when lost
Time is a blessing at any cost
Broken promises that fall by the side
Age is a harshness we try to hide
Regrets and dreams are hidden behind
the months and years we no longer find
Stored in our memory and ticking away
uncovering secrets from whence they lay
We see and hear, but do we heed
That time's whats neede
A Souls Passing..My tears; they fall like summer rainA Souls Passing..3 years ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
Softly; as they mask my pain
I say goodbye, as you leave me now
free of hurt, as I wipe your brow
Many days, you struggled so
Whether to stay or to let go
Loss of strength, but strong until
Your body succumbed againt your will
I see the man you were to me
so full of life and so carefree
Taking in each breath God gave
Till in the end, no one could save
Forgotten, you will never be
Each day I remember and I see
What a gift you gave and shared
Your love, your smile and how you cared
So rest your head and go in peace
The pain is gone, and now will cease
In heaven, where the good souls go
My ColoursI saw RED today..My Colours3 years ago in Emotional More Like This
Painful stabs of reality hit me with such force that my breathing was slowed to the point of near asphyxiation.
I was standing here but I felt as though it was not me.
That, I was outside my body looking past my emotions, to what my eyes could see.
My heart had taken on a much faster pace and it felt too big for my chest.
My arms hung loosely beside my torso, no will left for me to reach out.
No words came from my mouth although I wished them too.
Silence reigned and acceptance was inevitable as you walked away.
I saw BLACK today..
Too many unsaid words, many regrets and a lifetime of whatevers.
Shrouded moments of
Time To Heal..Time To Heal..3 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
I didn't think I was beautiful
No-one ever told me
and once they did
I never believed them.
My mind held me captive
in a place of denial.
Wanting to believe
but being afraid too.
A terrible place to be,
filled with insecurities
As I grew older,
my outside beauty faded
and my inner beauty shone,
but left me with many regrets
and precious moments lost.
Walking me backwards,
instead of forwards
My mind in a tangled mess
of what-ifs and maybe's.
A clouded sensation of
living, but being dead as well
So here I am stuck in today,
hoping for a better tomorrow
and wishing for my yesterdays.
I will not cry for I

My bruises run deep.
My eyes are bloodshot,
From where I weep.
The blood trickles cold,
Down my face.
Insults haunt me,
At your embrace.
You grab hold of my shoulders,
And bellow and shout.
I cry and I struggle,
And try to run out.
Yet you block me and kick me,
As I lay there and scream.
Left with terrified thoughts,
All lost hopes and dreams.
Eternal Yesterday..Eternal Yesterday..3 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
The touch of you still lingers,
deep beneath my skin
Creating visions of your lips
and places they have been
I smile as I remember,
your body next to mine
Longing to explore me,
our hearts and soul entwined
I sigh in adoration,
of whom I loved the most
Yet this is not reality,
For you are just a ghost
I knew you once so long ago
and yet I hunger still
My mind still living that one day;
I guess it always will
For once a heart gives in to love,
so completely will it fall
To take you to euphoria,
where time will seem to stall
I live within my fantasy
and dream of how we were
I see you laying next to me,
not leaving me for
Loves Song..Would my lonliness abate if I saw that you were lonely too?Loves Song..2 years ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
I think not, for all that my heart wishes, is to see the light shine in your eyes again.
If not for me then I must conceed to another.
It is a hard admission to make when my soul is still beating with yours.
I am not a martyr and neither do I wish to be, but I am a realist and to that I must give in.
So gently though my heart does ache
I pray that time, my pain, will take
To place it where my soul can sigh
To dry my tears, that I do cry
So sad I am, but worry naught
For life is gained, if often sought
Amongst the echoes of the lost
A memory shared at any cost

A nobody lost in a sea of the forgotten

A life of failed attempts
Would you know who i am if you saw me

A empty husk of pointless emotions
Lost and unwelcome
Do you see me

To be entwined with yours, never more
My tears, they drown my very soul
Each droplet spent, as they do roll
across the moments, that we once knew
now sadness reigns, where love once grew
I place a piece within my hand
and all I see is shifting sand
Of what we had, but is no more
mere yearning is all for me to store
Within my trinket box of dreams
Life is always, not as it seems
A blink in time can change it all
From euphoric to pity's call
A sound we do not want to hear
In most it brings the gravest fear
Of lovers found and then to part
Leaving scattered pieces,

they sputter about, springing up, sparks and showers,
and the stories in my eyes wait for you
to see them, read them, find me... believe them.
A deep blue teardrop falls into clear waters
My insides roll free before your open eyes
spread out like a sheet, a map of my mind
But you must be blind or you choose not to see
for you plod upon it all, you trod upon me
and twists, twirls, spreads
You are oblivious, perceive nothing
I'm overlooked and I fade,
like tiny crystal tendrils
I've been told before I am easy to read
and I've thrived by
My Crescent Moon..A crescent moon; one night did shineMy Crescent Moon..3 years ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
Upon our love; both yours and mine
So deep within our eyes so bright
We pledged our souls into the night
Our hand clasped tight upon our heart
With vows that we would never part
So young were we and yet we dreamed
No wrong be done; or so it seemed
But life is full of twists and turns
Of mourning and a soul that yearns
To see again, what could of been
With open eyes, but never seen
I sigh and often shed a tear
For what we had and still the fear
Will bind my heart to never more
To reminisce, of what we saw
We parted though our love was strong
To go our ways and yet to long

No, I Don't Wish You WellThis blanket of silence that you have laid upon meNo, I Don't Wish You Well2 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
Sends chills, up my spine.
You have my patience sitting on a thin narrow line
It unveils some sick, twisted, horrid lie
You've twisted my soul; in hopes that I would die.
You've used me.
Prayed to 'God' that you'd loose me.
And left me
...all in a short amount of time...
I hope that reality sends shivers up your spine.
You left me alone to cry
To have this horrid thought; the one where you left me to die.
Little rivers on my face,
Have turned into an ocean, surrounding the thoughts of you
Everyone knows that I hope, hope it drowns you.
You left me alone

How do you think it would feel to know that corruption lay in the corners of the most trusted members of society? To know that the one force that you could depend on was created purely as an umbrella for hate and greed to land on from skies that nobody could ever really control. To be there, on that day. That day when the umbrella finally gave way and those who had sheltered beneath it were buried under the weight of a thousand lies. How does it feel to read these lines and know that they were sketched out a decade ago by a ten year old child? That a child should understand so much is shocking, that a child should have to go through so

And find no bitterness there.

Dreaded and yet expectant
It seems like I..
can never fully quit you
You walked beneath the columns
I stood above you looking down
dressed in a white robe
while you wore black
your eyes were down turned
You never once looked up
I thought that I would feel something
Painful or bittersweet
But nothing transpired
The past, locked away
I felt sorry for you
Your eyes so focused on the ground
Never looking up to see the sky
You missed so much
Here I stood above
the world at my fingertips
Doing what I've always dreamed of
But you, still shuffling on
I saw you last night
In my dreams, locke

It has me in this place,
so full of hope and clothed in grace
Shadowed not in night, but day
To lead me to a better way
It beats so steadily,
filled with love and such serenity,
Compassion etched in every thud
Bound by faith and tied in blood
It filters, the good and bad
To peruse with trust and see whats had
To gain, to give and share this life
In sharing pain and avoiding strife
To you, I give myself
Of honesty and boundless wealth
The purest form of friendship true
This gift from me, I give to you..

Take all despair, the fear and pain
Place it midst drops, of soft summer rain
Draw a deep breath and hold it within
Cleansing the soul of all mortal sin
Seeing with eyes, the beauty serene
Of moments once gone, and yet to be seen
Dew holds the beginning, of each new day
To be felt as we're blessed in every way
Simple will warm the purest of heart
Greed shows no finish, to what we may start
Temper the want, the may and the please
See what is pure, with hands we may seize
Mistakes of our yesterdays, we leave behind
existing today with kin and our kind
Forging a life, in a future to shine
A journey as seen as yours and as mine..
The Owl and the Cat..The Owl and the Cat..2 years ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
A cat upon a roof did sit, as cheeky as can be
He spied an owl up in the sky and wondered merrily
"Oh pretty bird" he spoke so soft, "Come sit beside me here"
"To gaze upon the shiny stars that beckon us so near"
The owl did look upon the cat, but sensed it was not true
To hear these words within a purr, a trick he surely knew
The moon that shone within the sky, made clear the cats meow
Only feathers fluttered on the breeze to show the cat just how
An owl is so much wiser still, than any pussy cat
"So sit upon your roof alone" was all the owl did spat
So hence became the rivalry of birds and feline fair
The cats they chase but neve

Reflection tears my soul apart
This aching deep within my heart
Of moments gone and memories lost
This love we dream, at any cost
The scattered days and lonely nights
Of secret trysts and fear that bites
so deep it burrows beneath my skin
of pain and longing, seeped in sin
I know the road that I must tred
but still I linger with such dread
For once you're gone, I am alone
My heart again, will turn to stone
Remember me with love and lust
The girl I was before the trust,
Betrayed the love that we once shared
Of days gone by when we once cared
Etched in pages of my life
Twisted cruelly like a knife

A New Morning..A New Morning..3 years ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
Temper me with a patient will,
A steady heart and words that still,
remind me of the days gone by,
Of steadfast friends and the bluest sky.
Bathed in sunshine, warm and sweet,
Of laughter true, when lovers meet
Humility will gently cleanse the soul,
if temptation tries to take a hold.
Come see the world in shades of pink.
Of purples, green and blue.
Never forget the dreams you dream.
And to yourself be true.
Walk steady while the fervor grows,
an intensity all it's own.
Seen all as one, beneath this sun
from whence the seeds we've sown.
Our steps will take, the paths we make,
and guide us to belong.
As true is fat
A Sailor's Lament..The ocean; midst a storm did swellA Sailor's Lament..3 years ago in Urban & Spoken Word More Like This
All mighty raged in thunders hell
As ships lay doomed upon its floor
one lucky sailor reached the shore
To tell of waves that swallowed man
Of fear and angry tempests damned
A battle lost within the deep
So many souls the waters keep
To drift asunder for ever more
painted in the seaman's lore
Stories told and tales are kept
amongst the tears of wives that wept
A rose is thrown upon the sea
For those whose loss is just a memory
Seen no more, since that fateful day
When waves hast taken them away
A treacherous beast, these storms that come
To take a father and his son
So brave are those from

Time has the essence of which we do share
In seasons and nature beyond compare..
Blanket the fields with the white of snow
Draw in its beauty, of which we do know
Feel on your cheek, a soft winter's flake
An icy cold breath, in awe we do take
Cold it may be, but still we adore
the freezing cold winds and starkness galore
Stretching for miles, this blanket of white
Short are our days and long are our nights..
As gently as snow begins to melt
A warmth in the wind is often felt
Whispering high in the rustling trees
Reborn is spring on a fluttering breeze
Green replaces, what once was so white
To give to us all, a glorious sight
