Snowflakes...The snowflakes fall in slow motion.
One reaches down to kiss my cheek.
I close my eyes, shivering.
It feels like you.
Like your touch. Your lips on my skin.
A tingling shoots up my spine.
I can feel your arms around me.
Hear your whisper in my ear.
I stare at the snow.
Frozen in time.
I pull you closer to me, and meet your lips.
Coaxing heat from you, demanding your warmth, your heart, your everything.
Suddenly the snowflakes touch me again.
I am awakened. Forced back to my harsh, cruel reality.
My world that is now without you. Without us.

Whispered on the wind
I swear I felt your arms today...
Caressing my cold skin
I swear I felt your lips today...
Wet against my own

A soft and gentle moan
I know I felt my heart today...
Beating hard and fast
I know I love her more today...
Then ever in the past
I know she loves me more today...

Can I make you see...

Or is there someone other
Who will make you see you can...
Can't I be you soulmate?
Can I be your girl?
Do you feel this is fate...
Or a tragedy unfurled...
Can't I show my love for you?
Can I hold your hand?
Why don't you see my love is true?
Is it because I'm not a man...?
Sleep Little ChildrenA scared little girl confined to her bed, as sirens ring chillingly through her head.Sleep Little Children4 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
Deep, unfamiliar voices fill the halls, as strangers carry her grandfather down tall stairs.
She can't stop shaking for fear of what might be, "He was fine, he was okay. He said goodnight to me."
Unable to sleep, but has so much to do, she tries and she tries but she just lies there like a fool.
A toy pink bunny held tight in her grip, holding for company that she is too scared to get.
She lies alone in a room so dark, as the sirens fade into the night.
Sleep little children in ignorant bliss, and do not awake to nightmare like this.
CursedI'm cursed to live my days aloneCursed5 years ago in Concrete Poetry More Like This
With nothing but this heart of stone.
And through the lonely days I weep
With nothing left but hate to seep.
Stuck forever in this hopeless night,
Too many scars from this endless fight.
And still I guess that I'm to blame
For making everything stay the same.
I could have changed it if I tried.
Instead I cheated and scammed and lied.
It's all my fault, can't you see?
That I'm my own worst enemy?

Showing what is and what has been.
It has the would've, the could've,
And the should've, under the skin.
In swirling mists hide the sight,
Of an eye, aglow under the light.
Black with madness, with gladness,
And sadness within the white.
Under the cloudy surface lies,
Knowledge secret only to the wise.
Sacred to men living, men dying,
but not to those without such ties.
Within and behind the surface be
The same as those in front of me.
Be it terrible, great, or mundane:
In your mirror there is only thee.
Nothing less, and nothing more.

Pick up the phone and dial.
Wishing that she was here right beside me...
So I can see,
Her beautiful face.
She makes me the happiest man,
And knowing that she is there I know I can do anything and everything,
For when I go lay down there is no other.
Wanting for me and her to get under the covers.
And dream a beautiful dream.
And with that she makes me fall for her everyday.
Three wishesWhat would your three wishes be?Three wishes5 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
If you had three wishes
What would those wishes be?
Perhaps to live forever
You know, immortality?
Or how about a pair of wings
To lift you to the sky?
Or maybe meet your Prince Charming
A dashing, handsom guy?
Or what about telepathy
Secret access to the mind?
Read the thoughts of others
Or control them from inside?
What about world wide peace
To protect the Earth from war?
Or save the lives of innocent
From those who break the law?
Then there's also time travel
Why not revisit your time line?
Or maybe even time control
Now thats what I call "killing time!"
If you had three wishes
Which wishes would you choose?
Hurry up, the genie's waiting
You've got no time to lose!
So tell me, if you had three wishes what would you wish for?

Some Lies Have Truth In Them.i.Some Lies Have Truth In Them.5 years ago in Philosophical More Like This
Some fires burn without smoke.
I wouldn't want to be that kind of flame.
It's like saying "I like coffee, the kind without fragrance."
or saying "Starfishes are cute, but only so when they're not growing in water."
or saying "I want to wish on a star and hope my dream comes true."
There's no point in it.
(But some people love without heart, without truth.)
Some birds are flightless.
I don't pity them.
They are the only birds that master the ground and always look up in the sky.
Those with flight are the birds that always look down, and their wings tire.
Besides, flightless birds will one day fly.
(But some people pity the lover-less.)
Some secrets are lost.
I dream of them, but never cry over them.
Some things are meant to stay as mysteries eternally.
So if we hunt them down, they lose their attractiveness.
For example, what if scientists said the Bermuda Triangle is filled with a gas that causes delusion?
It would be disappointing.

To fall on my face,
Now my eyes are filled
With clouds of gray.
I hear tears tap along the floor,
I don't believe in love anymore.
I hear myself screaming,
But no one can hear a sound.
Why do I feel so alone,
Even in the largest of crowds?
I guess I let myself
Believe in people's lies,
Sometimes I like to believe,
That not everything dies.
I miss the sound of laughter,
I wish for another chance.
I was knocked over,
I've lost my stance.
Love isn't forever,
But why does it have to end like this?
I clutch on to photographs,
Missing that feeling of bliss.

I used to build snow men, but you said : "It's only playing God," And then I stopped, leaving the side of half-alive snowballs. Weeks pass

Things no one but me knew.

Leaving me exposed,
The pieces of myself floating on the breeze...
I watched you run,
Hiding in the darkest corner,
So you wouldn't see my tears...

is it a cloud of gold dust
shimmering in the sky

the sound of the river the lightning

sunshine on the tip of your tongue,
melting like a snowflake
absorbed in your skin;
like a waterfall of
ecstasy caving it?
but i think
it's a a combination of moments
that exist in the time
between the seconds:
when eyes meet,
when a car crashes,
when lips press together
or when the mail doesn't come.
when the sun won't come out
or you laugh till you cry
when you fall out of bed
or lose your favorite scarf in the wind
what is a year
but a string of moments
in the sea?

His desk is so tall, I like to sit under it and stare up at where

Heartless GuardPart IHeartless Guard5 years ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
She was his queen, he was her guard.
Eyes cold like stone; face marble-hard.
And every day, he played his part:
A being of strength without the heart.
The queen, in turn, embraced her role:
With quiet grace, held firm control.
From day to day, the duty called,
And maintained order in her world.
She ruled the lives, all proud and strong;
Decisions made were never wrong.
With conflicts settled, peace in court,
She earned respect and great support.
And all this time, he stood nearby,
Just close enough to hear her sigh.
And to unveil the hidden sorrow,
In darkened night and sunlit morrow.
Queen's trusted guard, her constant shadow,
There to protect with loyal ardor,
Besides the body, guarded soul;
Knew secret dreams, heard silent call.
The heartless man with piercing eyes
Disrobed the queen of her disguise.
And just to him, she could confide
The bitter thoughts that stabbed her mind.
With all that might, on golden throne,
She felt so miserably alone.
Of course, respected well enough
