"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 Burn5 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.....
A DreamWas it you that I saw?A Dream4 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
In my dreams I was still in awe.
I thought I was over you.
I thought I was done being blue.
But lately you have returned in my dreams.
You still haunt me, thats how it seems.
I still see your perfect smile.
I just sit there and stare at it for a while.
I can still feel your gentle lips.
And the smooth curves of your hips.
I hear your melodic voice.
I cant turn away, even if I had a choice.
I miss you so much.
Your hugs, kisses, mostly your touch.
But then something happens, I awake.
And my heart starts to ache.
Then I realize its just a dream.
Then my tears start to stream.

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

Feeling the torment inside of you
The way you were being torn in two
Knowing the dreams and path
You would choose
I made the decision for you,
Entering your heart I got to see
Two different stairways and where
They would lead,
One of light, joy and peace
One of darkness, rage and pain,
That needed to be released,
Closing my eyes and raising my hand
Feeling your emotions that was echoing
The silent tears that you would cry
Ran down my face as if they were mine,
These words I whispered softly and firm
Filled with love, caring and all that I am,
"I weave a web of a golden gate
Separating the two and freeing you
From this fate
Your rage and pain I take within
In return I give to you
What you have craved
What you need
Light, love and peace
You shall know
It will bath your heart and your soul,
No more pain will you feel,
Only the light of love
No more rage will consume your heart
Only peace and happiness
No more darkness will fill your heart,
Only the radiance of what I
The HealerHe takes my heart in his hand,The Healer5 years ago in Urban & Spoken Word More Like This
And a stitching needle in the other.
He's stitching up the scars,
And making me feel better.
He's gluing up the cracks,
And healing the wounds.
So my heart can feel again,
And love him more.
He teaches me how to love,
Without having to fear.
And when my heart needs repairing,
He's quick to take care of it.
He puts the pieces back on,
When my heart has been shattered.
He takes care of my fragile heart,
Especially when it needs it most.
And most of the time,
He's completely unaware that he's doing it.
IfIf we'd grabbed that opportunityIf5 years ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
and run with it, not set it free,
we might have forged a different way
and built another, brighter, day.
We could have soared to wondrous heights
and revelled in our own delights,
not walked alone on toilsome paths
between life's dreams and in the dark.
If you'd clasped my hand and flown with me
just think where we might now have been:
outside this realm of numb despair,
beyond the reach of others' cares.
If only we had known it then,
and held on tight to what we knew,
we'd not have made mistakes again
or let the bonds of love undo
but kept each other close instead,
that we might face the world ahead
emboldened by each other's touch.
If only we had learnt to trust.
A Treasure In YouA Treasure in YouA Treasure In You4 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
You took off your mask,
and bared it all,
Showing a side of you,
That some have never seen before,
Trust and honesty, loyalty and heart,
That is what I have found in you,
Something so rare and beautiful
This is why I will treasure
the words you said this day,
For no masks were involved,
No persona's in play,
Just two people talking,
Being honest from the heart
So from me to you,
I thank you for this gift,
I will treasure it always,
A special moments like this,
For I will look back and know
without a doubt,
That I have a Guardian Angel,
Looking out for my heart...
That is why I will trust in you
To guard the treasure that
bonds us two,
For what we have found
is rare but true,
Something so special
and everlasting between
me and you
Blank.Tell me what I did wrong.Blank.4 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
Did I not play you the right song?
Did I care too much.
Or was it my touch.
Should I apologize when I care?
Or was I just too much to bear?
And now you have moved on.
But my mind is still gone.
I cannot forget your image.
My heart and mind are still in a scrimmage.
But oh, no tears please.
Soon I will just disappear in the breeze.
But then again what can I say.
If your happy now then its okay.
You were divinity's creature.
So beautiful, you were the perfect preacher.
Now I stare alone at the moon.
To be honest I hope I see you soon.

Our LoveThe moon shines down on the bodies of two lovers,Our Love4 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
Their pale skin glistening with the kiss of love.
The reflections run in the entangled waves
Of the lover's currents, holy to thy.
The air surrounding them is glowing with the energy of their passion
As the flow of the wind flows calm as their bonded hearts.
Their hearts beat as one, synchronized in the sacred practice;
Papyrus skin rubs smoothly and writes the passage.
The act is sealed with a sensuous kiss, joining them completely,
And that kiss will retain their passion for every fortnight onward.
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.REGRETS4 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
