I see her face when my eyes are closed
She lives in my heart and I in hers
My dark-haired beauty, my soulmate
A lifetime of love; given, accepted
Cherished beyond measure
A love so deep it creates its own space
Where none other dare intrude
A love story for the ages
But some stories are never written
Never put to the pen
For others to marvel and sigh over
To shine through the future as beacons
Of the truth of love
She died before we met
These are the great love stories never written
Lives lived out in the sorrow of the soul
Who Named the Earth?Gnar the Elder in the Spring of 6834 BCE. See, he was Yak hunting in the Siberian Steppe and tripped over an errant Hedgehog who had got himself lost while looking for Rutabaga leaves [Rutabaga originated in the Steppe, Hedgehogs are marvelously well educated in such things cute little vegetarian buggers that they are...] to cure a persistent stomach complaint caused by over-indulgence in bangers and eggs for breakfast at his local Pub which bore the rather interesting moniker, the "Knee-Cap and Hound". No-one was quite certain as to how it had come by this unfortunate name but most blamed Zuup the Unsteady who, perhaps rightly, was credited with the discovery of distillation as a means of refining and concentrating the alcohol from fermented grains into what he called, "Whiskey"; most said that it should have been called wiski but Zuup was three sheets to the wind at the time and having no small difficulty with the language, in any case the discovery prompted Zuup to open an establishWho Named the Earth?4 years ago in Humor More Like This

That life should serve 'pon silver plate.
And render thee all thou wouldst wish,
Ill served by thine own vanity.
Think thee then life has all to give,
To all on Earth that seek to live.
And tend thee all Earthly treasures,
Bow down to thy insanity.
Life gives not but in exchange,
And ever wont is life to change.
To each is lent but what they make,
Of their humble humanity.
CircumstantialYou were a mistake I knew I was makingCircumstantial1 year ago in Urban & Spoken Word More Like This
But at the time it was alright,
It was the glue that held me together
And rocked me to sleep at night
All the little differences
Didn't hide the similarities
And temporarily quenched
The aching that I felt in me
A few bittersweet memories
To give me more faith in this life
So that even when I'm dreadfully alone
I know things can still go right
You will never rank among my regrets
Because it was perfect, if askew,
And comfort has given me courage to admit
That, just a little, I miss you.

And, hypothetically, we share every fear
Yet we both hypothetically know
That we could never hypothetically let us go.
So we'll just hypothetically
Hide behind hypothetical hypocrisy
All the hypothetical while
Savoring these hypothetic smiles
Hopes manifest in hypothetical dreams
Leading to a future that hypothetically gleams
And I wish you'd hypothetically fall in love with me
Because I'm in love with you. Hypothetically.

Been thinking a lot lately.
You're the reason I get up in the morning. And go to sleep at night. And take care of myself. And am still breathing, to be frank.
And I let so many things get in the way of being happy and content and going to bed and waking up with the knowledge that the person I truly believe to be perfect foe me was mine.
I lost that for a while. And honestly didn't much know what to do with myself. I either stopped putting my heart into some things or pouring it into small things because it was all I could think of.
I tried something else for a while. And was actually truly happy with someone not you for the first time in years. It was weird, and very short lived. Which I should have seen coming, to be honest. It was a hollow sort of happiness, in its way, but I didn't know it'd hurt so bad to let it go.
Slog through another few months of mild emptiness and you reach a few weeks ago.
I started talking to your friends. Because I was lonely and they were there, really

Out of everything.
Somewhere where I could look at things

Where I could just go

But I wake up every morning
in the same bed as the day before.
And it crushes me.

I have all these things I want to do. And they're all either waiting on someone else or I can't.
I'm thinking so many things I don't even fully understand and they won't go away. They're nagging in around the inside of my mind like gnats.
I'm feeling more isolated than normal and like things are slipping back into the way they used to be. And I hate the word 'slipping' because it generally implies down, but that's what this feels like, and I hate that even more.
I'm going stir crazy inside my own mind and I don't even know if I can fix it.
On the plus side I'll probably be writing more often.

Lips bittersweet and salty
Without the stigma of grief,
A refreshing change.
Arms always open wide,
Cool and comforting,
Never running away.
Mother of all life,
Her rages beautiful,
But always followed
By silent forgiveness
For our wrongs.
Holding me aloft
When I close my eyes
And have faith.
Always ready to embrace you
In the only ways she knows best

All this time alone,
With other people.
Maybe we still need this,
All this time.
We have so much of it ahead of us,
But so little.
And it may take months,
Dragging itself out,
But gone in the blink of an eye.
Before you know it,
We'll be happy again.

This aching in my chest,
A constant tapping in my thoughts
That says to improve on my best
Awkward and silent,
Lost and a bit confused,
Trying to work past those things
I wish I wouldn't do
So there's this pull I'm feeling
Through the core of me
That says I'll never get it right
And should leave the world to be
I wanna work this out
Put things right on track,
I'd thought they were fine
But apparently I lack
This just how I am now
And I've only ever been me
I just can't find the words
To tell you I'm sorry.

as i sit here i let my mind drift
back to you
to a time when it was just pure bliss and innocence
a time we talked, laughed, hugged
a time when we understood each other
a time when i could run to you for anything
a time when a hug from you lit my dark world
i let my memories flood back
replaying every moment we spent together
when you said "take my hand" and led me down the steep hill
when you grabbed my hand and helped me onto the pier
when you let me hug you and not let go...
i cry at night
i dream of you
i miss hugging you
i get depressed
and i cling to your necklace
time and time again i find my self asking why?
why do i torment myself like this
holding on to a tiny shred of hope
a tiny thread stretched thin
hope is such a dangerous thing to have
but then again....
sometimes i remember, smile and think
sometimes chances are good ... hope is good
and it may take time but
sometimes you just have to hope and take a chance

About the pair of eyes I see in my dreams,
So dark and deep, calling, pulling me,
A way out through a door I've never found
And as substantial as the clouds
Ask me to write a poem
About the boy haunting my thoughts,
As pale as the ghost he might as well be
With the dazzling smile he hides behind,
Floundering his way through the world
Ask me to write a poem
About the dreams I stay awake for,
The hope of making my mark on the world,
A piece of me someone can look back on
Ask me to write a poem
About all my little aspirations,
The little hopes that build up to my big one
That I dwell on while walking in the dark
Because my struggles finally taught me
Not to be afraid of the night
Ask me to write a poem
About why my walls stay blank,
Bursting with untapped possibilities
And notebooks full of potential
To remind me that you can always start new
Ask me to write a poem
About my love of dogs and fairy tales,
About how I can spend hours and hours,
Days at a time

Colors arch-keep reaching-through
Dancing in sparkling sunlight
Ending a million miles away

Keep reaching, through
Long miles of impossibility

Only then will my child's mind find
Quilted across the sky in
Still and silent in the sleepy morning sky
True beauty, natural,
