It is a dreary, yucky looking winter's day!
Time to pull down the backlit beach scene shades...
or just hop a plane and run away!
My WifeThe woman I love can shine like the sunMy Wife3 years ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
She reminds me of myself all the time
I feel like I am not the only one
Unlike all the others I have to mime
The woman I love loves to make me smile
She insists that I'm pretty like a rose
I wish she would always stay for awhile
Her mind is strong like a river that flows
The woman I love also loves me too
The memories we share we hold so dear
Even though nobody else has a clue
She is the only one I need to hear
This is the woman that I will marry
And her joy is what my heart will carry
Never Let Me GoPlease...Never Let Me Go3 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
Never let me go.
Hold me in your arms forever,
And never let me go.
Only hold me like this,
With my head against your chest,
And let me listen to your heart.
Just hold this broken soul
Let this broken heart beat gently
In harmony with yours
Run your fingers through my hair,
And kiss my lips tenderly.
Let me cling to your shirt
As you sing to me softly.
Hold me while I cry,
And never let me go.
An angel on broken wingsThe fact that I am broken is something I cannot denyAn angel on broken wings3 years ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
You came and started fixing it in the blink of an eye
All you have ever done is show me unconditional love
That is why I think you are an angel sent from up above
It saddens me that when talking I run out of things to say
I want to talk through the night, until dawn the next day
You are the one who has helped me to overcome all my fear
Now I see the world in a way that is ever so much more clear
I have come to think, for this world, you are far too good
You have shown me a love which no one else ever could
You are the one I will defend in any and all confrontations
I won't see tears on the face of one of gods purest creations
You live your life day to day, burdening far too much pain
Yet you are still able to see the simple beauty in the rain
You always make your point, despite not being outspoken
You remain so morally strong, despite being partially broken
Despite being too good for this world all you do is care
The fact you find yo

so it cradles your hips perfectly.
We mirror a bowl filled with water.
You are rocking above me,
giving me your body's lullaby.
We are a soothing cradle of peace
I am nipping with my mouth,
pressing hearts into your red veins.
We are a blended organ of lust.
You have touched my body,
finishing off the silken touch.
We represent the scene of perfect love.
Forget Me.You had my heart from "Hello",Forget Me.4 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
but love is an emotion I dare not show.
I'm just a shadow of your affection,
nothing but a raindrop falling without direction.
My mouth sewn shut, this is a silence I regret.
You've moved on, I'm just someone to forget.
You love me.
Yet you hate me.
You want me,
but don't need me.
Please tell me,
but don't break me.
These are the words I'll never tell.
These are the words I silently yell.
I'm cursed to love, but never speak.
I beg my broken heart to beat.
Tears of BloodTears of bloodTears of Blood4 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
Stream down my face.
I try to hide them
But they spread
Like a plague.
The pain is showing
All over my body.
The redness of blood,
Like a poisoned apple,
Has stained my skin.
My nails are caked
With the forgotten tears
Of those from the past
When I still cried
These tears of blood.
The red sinks into my hair,
Dying it the color of death.
I cannot escape it.
It is always there
Like a drunken tattoo.
Make these stop
I'm drowning in blood
The red sea is up to my chin
If I let out a scream,
I will drown and cease to exist.
Maybe that's the best.
True LoveA warm breeze on an autumn dayTrue Love3 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
Reflects my memory to your embrace
It's warm and comforting like the season
With hopeful memories left to chase
Those joyous memories reminding of you
Never cease to cross my mind
And the future ones yet to come
Are up to us to seek and find
There's things about you i'll always cherish
Like your smile that shines so bright
Just a glance can drive me wild
Proving a truth to love at first sight
It is strange to think it would be me
For i was the one they'd least expect
To end up with someone as amazing as you
Someone so completely impossible to forget
Not a day goes by when you arent on my mind
Nor a day without you inflicting a smile
I'm not one to care so deeply
But for you i'd go the extra mile
So stay with me through this night
And we'll gaze upon the stars above
And we'll sit right there and be an example
Of what it's like to find true love

I only wanted money and fame then you came into my life
Now the only thing I covet is something that cannot be bought
I thought possessions gave comfort then you came into my life
Now I feel myself filled with peace by your mere presence
I believed that I was doomed to misery then you came into my life
Now I see that, with some work, I can be normal once again
I Will Love YouThere's a certain something in that smileI Will Love You3 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
In those brown, hazel eyes
You laugh, you speak, you touch
I'm aware of every single thing.
I don't really know you well
Though our lips seem to enjoy each other's company,
You hold my hand and I wait for it:
Those ridiculous butterflies you hear about
They never came.
You can imagine my loss,
As I kissed deeper and desperately.
Searching for what was supposed to be there,
Did you feel it?
My head was agaisnt your chest and your heart was beating
Did you feel my heart beat?
Or, was there a silent thump?
There's so many questions I want to ask you
Though I don't know you really.
Just, please, give me time
Don't see my vacant stare and think there's nothing there
Because there is, there is
I'll find it
And I'll give it to you.
I will love you,
With butterflies, and sugar pies, and all the sweetness you can take
I will feel
Even if I can't.
For You, My LoveWhat would you do if to your doorstep, I came?For You, My Love3 years ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
Would you greet me with joy, or turn away in shame?
Would you jump for joy and crush me in loving embrace?
Or would you glare at me and slam the door in my face?
Would you want to run away with me, into the moonlight?
For us the book on love is something I am trying to rewrite
It may be arrogant to assume so, but we would be unique
We could run away to South America, maybe even buy a cacique
We could just lie together on the beach, in the heat of the sun
Being together we can guarantee everything in life will be done
I can't promise that it will be a life of big houses and fancy cars
But it will be full of simpler pleasures, like dancing under the stars
You're the one with unconditional love I would like to imbue
We could travel from town to town, working only when we need to
We could travel from Rio to Sydney and all the way back to Rome
Or we could simply settle down, have kids and set up our own home
If you choose we can walk away from
There's Nothing To See HereMy chin quiversThere's Nothing To See Here3 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
My eyes fill with tears
In an instant I am strong
A quick blink
A flash of a smile
There's nothing to see here
A pang of hurt
A blow of loneliness
In an instant under the rug
My chin is up
My step is steady
There's nothing to see here
My face is pale
My stomach is empty
In an instant covered up
A bit of blush
A bite of spaghetti
There's nothing to see here
A shaky hand
A blank stare
In an instant disappeared
My glass is held still
My eyes glance quickly
There's nothing to see here
When in all honesty I know
Just because it's not a show
Doesn't mean there's nothing to be seen here
SpiritsIn this room the dead still gatherSpirits3 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
Obtrusive in a reflection I can only see
They mock my seclusion every hour
Forever haunting each gray dream
When the clock strikes witching hour
Awaken I am by disdainful laughter
Cursing them back to Hell's black fire
Yet they stay, forever faithful to their master
Again the sun ascends, vigilant at its post
The darkest hour sneaks inside the day
Sitting, always staring, is an ill begotten ghost
Sipping from a bottle of my finely aged shame
Running, always fleeing, I am hunted like a prize
Craving still the essence of a tainted, tattered soul
Feeding off my spirit even right before my eyes
Hear me puzzle master; I am one piece short of whole
Love's Forgotten MeIf truth is what you speakLove's Forgotten Me4 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
If love is what you feel
I would not live another day
If this wasn't real.
You are not worth my time.
You are not worth my life.
Yet here I am dying in my blood.
And you hold the knife.
My love has long since withered.
My love has long since died.
Yet you and me are here,
blood-covered, but revived.
Where have you gone?
You've left me lonely.
I've forgotten love,
for love's forgotten me.
SunriseI sit here and watch the rising of the morning sunSunrise3 years ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
Doing it is something that I am glad I have done
It does not bother me that I sit out here watching alone
My appreciation for this kind of thing isn't well known
I think that it is worthwhile at this hour to still be awake
Looking into darkened horizons waiting for the sun to break
When it happens you become bathed in oranges and reds
You experience it while many others are still in their beds
It could only be better if I were watching it with you
It is one of the few things left in life that I would like to do
I would hold you close to my chest, gentle but tight
To see it we could stay awake, talking through the night
This experience is one of life's most simple pleasures
Compared to it there isn't very much that even measures
It sets tones of breathtaking colours in the darkened skies
Though it compares nothing to the beauty of your eyes

above me- nearly a teen,
And my father- clutching my hand,
It loomed above us
Like a guillotine,
Waiting to collapse around us
There was no
There wasn't enough time
to move forwards
I was the one saying, "We're going to die."
But my father reminded me that- "No we're not."
He was wrong, of course.
He'll die. I'll die. You'll die.
The only thing that's important
Is this: you're the voice now.
You're the one declaring,
"We can make it."

Save Your HeartDon't fall in love with me, I'll only break your heart.Save Your Heart3 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
Save yourself, you're not the one for me,
I'll only tear you apart.
If my eyes look like tomorrow,
Look away, I'll carve your heart hallow.
Save your days from heartache and pain.
Forget my face, and the sound of my name.
My smile isn't for you, nor the curve of my hips.
My warning is true, hear these words from my lips.
I'll be your only thought and desire.
Save your heart from my fire.
The entrance to my heart has always been a revolving door.
You'll fall apart, and shatter all over the floor.
I'll leave your heart bruised and battered,
Then move on like it never mattered.
Run along, you don't need the pain,
For if I take your heart, it'll never be the same.
I Know It HurtsSolid foundations turn to dustI Know It Hurts3 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
Daily fate soars with the breeze
Sometimes it's too hard to adjust
The earth quakes beneath your knees
You find no comfort in warm faces
What you search for isn't there
Your world alone sits in a stasis
Nagging pains you just won't share
Angst filled cannons fire at will
Now you're just making things worse
Your fingers grasp a stubborn pill
Every dose adds to your curse
Unhinged your world comes crashing down
You're just adding to the noise
The will to fight lies underground
Yet you choose to hunt decoys
When things break down you have to move
If you think your core asserts
In time these scars life will remove
Trust me friend I know it hurts

And so, you fell into hard pavement, everything shattered and broken.

What could have possibly been going through my mind at that moment?
How in any way was that the sane thing to do?
How in any way was that the condign thing to say?
I feel as if for that brief time I completely lost myself...
My sense of judgement...
I wonder what they must think of me...
Has their respect for me been lost?
Is there any possible way for them to disregard that event from their memories?
Will I ever appear the same way through their eyes?
Oh, how I wish I could take it back...
If only I could travel back through time and correct myself...
If only I could have avoided that horrid situation, and spare myself of this feeling...
How I wish I could shake this feeling of regret...

Serving strawberries with whipped cream

Babe, I want to be your dream
And make it something that'll last
