"My restless soul is wand'ring in the wilderness of life,
Never really knowing where I shouldst be.
I liveth with my hollowness of loneliness and strife,
Hoping that my destination is thee."
"Oh, noble gift, I've followed you nigh on a thousand years,
The distance crossed hath kept me lost and 'lone.
I've been so close at times, I think, that I can taste your tears.
But never near to keep you for mine own."
"The mists of time hath fogged the view of thy sweet loving face
I strain mine thoughts to keep you in my sight
The places past, the journeys made, hath kept me from thy grace
But I hath yet to give up in this fight."
In Caledonia, ancient land that no more can be seen,
The daughter of a warrior king once lived.
Her beauty and her power, both were like a new sword keen,
Her gifts of strength and passion heaven's gift.
In land of Gaul there lived a man with given Christian name,
Its meaning was to be a man reborn.
His travels far would lead him places never twice the same,
As We Slowly BurnI pull her close till our bodies entwine,As We Slowly Burn4 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
a morbid prelude to our demise,
we dance until this world stops turning,
we waltz along the bridges we're responsible for burning,
hand in hand,
side by side,
we'll slide along the shattered souls that become our dance floor,
downtrodden and broken they lie before us,
and so we begin our final dance,
surrounded by the burning ash of the lives we led,
the lights of judgement begin to burn so bright,
they fall upon us casting twisted silhouettes of who we once were,
as fire begins to consume her dress,
i hold her ever more tightly as the flames tear apart our flesh,
it's here we suffer for our sins,
as we slowly dance our way to oblivion.....
REGRETSRegrets come from altars and dried flowers from special days. They grow in cupboard of past homes and apartments. Regrets blow on the breeze of lost words, missing kisses and last breaths. Regrets are what guilt is left as a residue, a reminder of the past, a harsh penalty for not doing something, for doing something, for feeling wrong. The heart knows there is regret, the head knows there is regret but you can't fix regrets. You'll sit and wonder, sigh with sadness, knowing, feeling that you can't change what you did, change what you said, change for better or for worse. Regrets last a lifetime. All those memories you have, most of them will fester with regrets. One day you'll realise these regrets are just dragging you down, but, until then you'll lie in the shallow pool of regrets waiting for someone or something you help you out.REGRETS3 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
Never Let GoNever Let GoNever Let Go3 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
I will never let you go;
I need you in my life,
Then don't let go
But you have to do the same,
Hold me in your arms,
And never let me go,
Hold me ever so close
So our souls can become as one,
I won't let you go,
No matter what happens,
No matter what comes,
I will hold you in my arms,
and face the battles as one,
As long as you're by my side,
I know I can face all that comes my way,
Knowing your arms are around me
gives me strength that I need,
And if I stumble and I shall fall,
I know you will be there to pick me up
Catching me in your arms,
Wiping away my tears,
Helping me to see it through.
I won't let you fall
Never leave me
And I shall never leave you
No matter what comes
I will always be there in your arms
Holding on ever so tightly
For in my soul, that is where I belong

My nightly desires,
Come bond with me,
In these illicit pleasures,
Join with me this night,
Giving into our forbidden desires,
As you taste this angel tonight,
Let me sip of my guardians delights,
Bend your neck and let me feast on you
Taking in your essence as you drink of mines to,
Two bodies as one, uniting together,
Sharing all they have, body, soul, and pleasure,
I am yours and you are mines,
This is how is shall be for all time,
I take this vow from this day forth,
Our mines are one,
As are our souls,
Never ever try to let me go,
For we have become one
here and now,
Our vows from the heart,
Until death do us apart,
This promise we made....
So hold me in your arms,
Never let me go,
As I will hold you in mine,
All the days and nights through.
Long DistanceA thin screen is all that seems to divide us,Long Distance3 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
But really there are so many more miles between us
It would take almost a month to walk.
And yet, all I want to do is be with him;
I would walk those miles if that's what it takes,
What it takes to be in the same town as he is.
What a lot of people don't know,
Is that thin screen is not enough to keep us together,
Though I am trying as hard as I can,
And I really want to be happy with him,
There are times when I wonder
If I can really handle being so far away from the one I love.
The Beauty Of YouI want you to see yourself through my eyesThe Beauty Of You4 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
To see your heart and soul as I do
To hear the sweet melody of your voice
I'm lost within the beauty of you
I want you to see yourself through my eyes
Your flaws only add to your perfection
Strengths and weaknesses beautiful alike
But you don't see that man in your reflection
I want you to see yourself through my eyes
Cos if you could only see what I do
You would see that you deserve happiness
You would be lost within your beauty too
Love never diesWas it the sparkle in your eyeLove never dies3 years ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
Or the touch of your hand
When first I knew
With boundless hope
My love for you?
Was it the curl of your hair
Danced by a summer breeze
That I watched in awe
And knew from then
It would make me fall?
Was it the beat of your heart
That merged with mine
To make a song
Our special thing
As we grew strong?
Was it the touch of your lips
So soft and warm
As they brushed my cheek
In the moon's soft glow
That made me weak?
Was it your fault or mine
We said those words
That made me cry
The whole night long
And want to die?
Was it written in the wind
That our paths would part
And we could never be
The way we were?
While I still loved thee.
Was it love's harsh rule
That I must be alone
And for all of my days
I will hurt for you
And miss your ways?
Was it a twisted fate
That wrenched us apart
And brought us so low?
As I whispered in my sleep,
I do love thee so.
DreamsWe only meet in dreamsDreams3 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
But that's not good enough for me
I want to be face to face with you
Waking up to memories
But they're growing faded
Why can't this emptiness
Inside of me
Ever be sated
This isn't asking very much
I really do believe in this
I'd die to feel you touch
I'd kill to taste your kiss
Youre exactly what I want
Exactly what I need
You're every little thing
That I find best in me
You took my broken heart
You make me complete
But we're so far apart
I can't wait for us to meet
But distance doesn't apply
Inside of our dreams
It's the only reason why
I continue to still breathe
I Do Not Own Your HeartI do not own your heartI Do Not Own Your Heart4 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
It does not beat within my chest
I am not it's keeper
But I love you, nonetheless
It does not beat within my chest
It is not mine to hold
If it were mine, I assure you
I would treat it like the finest gold
I do not own your heart
And it cuts like a knife
But I'd rather love you from a distance
Than to lose you for life
It cuts like a knife
So close and yet so far
You don't know how much it hurts
That I do not own your heart.
