I run across a desert
a desert of ice and snow
the barren landscape all aglow
with the sun scattering shards of light
I take off, I take flight
Where am I going? I ask myself
Does it matter? I answer back
I screech to a halt
I perk my ears
a howling echo reaches me
I howl back
"friend? or foe?"
A howl in return
some yips & yelps
"hey! wouldn't you like to know?"
I am soon surrounded
Is this my downfall?
my brothers leap onto me
the clowns of it all!
I leave my pack once again
the lone wolf that I am
To run across the horizon
To fix my thirst
To lap up the miles
To put it all behind
To purge this growing hunger
For the world around me
To feel the moments fly by
and be lost in time

The Spirit of the MuseBlack as the blood of nightThe Spirit of the Muse5 years ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
the white glow of moon eyes
Fire dancing on the lips
the caress, a wind-swept kiss
In the poet's teardrops
where time starts and the heart stops
A walk among the stars
where the soul's freed from its bars
Born before humankind
of phoenix breath, sunrise
Ancient, ageless, no name
of gods' flesh, Love's mould the same
A mirror's reflection
save through the poet's hand...
in words she can't understand
Wrought from pain, forged with will
so quiet, the mind still
The poet hears her muse,
her tears are falling for you

i gave my heart to a crocodile
he used it as a toothpick
i took it back
gave it to Charlie Chaplin
he kept playing the dictator
i took it back
gave it to Houdini
he'd make it disappear every morn
i took it back
gave it to the Beatles
they threw it to their lunatic fans
i took it back
gave it to my chest
it was dark and bloody in there
i took it back
gave it to You,
to stuff it next to yours -
i heard from your veins
there's room enough for Two
in your rib cage.

Thoughts of life
Thoughts of love
Fill your head
And make you crazy
But look at the seed of sorrow
How it spreads
How it grows
How it soaringly
Fills your heart
With black, dull clouds
Thoughts of fear
Thoughts of sorrow
Thoughts of pain
Fill your head
and make you mad
Watch out for the seed of love
In the mess
In the clouds
In the wreck
Of your heart
But you haven't found it yet
But what is this?
It's the seed of love
That fills your head and heart
Cold BedWhile the darkness swallows meCold Bed7 years ago in Songs & Lyrics More Like This
and i can't sleep tonight,
it's obvious to see
that I don't feel alright.
While the shadow's on the floor
and the radio still plays,
I want you more and more
and I just don't feel okay.
Now I'm wishing that your breath's on my neck.
And I'm thinking of the words left unsaid.
So many dreams keeping me awake.
There's nothing here that I can say.
What's another lonely night
to top off my hopeless days?
What's another cold bed
to fill up this empty space?
And what you think, it's not okay
when you see me crying here.
But what's another lonely night
to top off my hopeless tears?
While the midnight comes alive
I'm watching yesterday.
Well you're never here at night.
I don't miss you anyway.
Well I'm listening to,
the sound of you,
with pictures in my head.
Posters on my door,
do nothing for,
this bent and broken bed.
Burning all my hope.
And ripping apart at me.
But they will never know,
what they will never see.
While the darkness swallows me,
and I can't slee

Look at pictures of us without breaking down in tears.
Manage to get you off my mind.
Stop missing you.
Stop wondering if you are doing okay.
Ever stop loving you.
Stop wondering why you won't even say hello to me.
Give up hope that someday you'll speak to me again.
Stop praying, wishing, hoping, and dreaming to have you back in my life.
Ever forget you.

Water, blue as the eyes can see
Open the bottle, drink the potion
The voices calling out to me
You were there on the beach
Kicking sand and eating peach
Waiting to be rescued
Waiting for the reach
The shadows of our past
Will never let us last
Somehow we will prevail
Ready, Set, Sail
The ruthless waves of truth
Taking away our youth
Our love will never fail
Ready, Set, Sail
I'm rowboating my life away
Hoping you will never stray
Hoping you will always stay
Hoping, for my actions, you will not pay
But you're always with me
Finding my way home
Lost in memories
My MiracleThe icy blue and white crystals collide to form a kaleidoscope view of a frozen tundra with howling winds and biting cold nipping at your skin. The forest green gemstones and blood red droplets blend into a grayish fog that combat the power of the tide crashing upon the shore a thousand times. A blazing yellow and pastel orange dissolve into a flaming sphere with majesty unmatched through the ages. All of these combinations, these miracles of nature, pale in comparison of your beauty, of the feeling I experience just being able to see your face each day.

A moon is nothing without a planet, and a planet is alone without a sun.
You are my celestial pair, my other half, my yin to your yang.
There is a starburst of tanzanite stones set in my pale purple heart that you alone do own.
Beaming ruby light thrown forth by the way my heart shines for you in this age of dark.
Bright shiny love that has burst forth after so many years, no longer able to contain itself.
Where did this eternal spring of hot tears well up from?
Why are you the one woman who can do this to me? I've never cried over a woman before,
and certainly not every single day for ten months straight either. But for you, I have.
I've devoted an entire year waiting for your missing replies, praying every day
Just that you'll speak to me this time. Please God let this be different, I need a miracle.
You've been gone now, 15 years plus one ago when I wrote to you,
it's the anniversary of my letter saying I remember you.
You're burned into me, branded into my skin, g

the laughter and love that we shared,
I smile at all the ways we loved and we dared
to dream of a wonderful future together
and how we promised this was forever
And I try to recall the moment when
things started to change;
Just what it could've been
to cause our happiness to slip away,
And though I may never find the answer
I do know one thing for sure;
I still love you now
as much as I did then
and I don't know how
but we can get through this
I'm not ready to give up on us
You're still my one true love

only the channels between
islands of light lining streets,
a golden figure seen
from breathy steps.
Solitude is a seven-starred cape,
black pavements pass like minutes
The alleys of isolation stretch
and gape, with well-lit limits.

Austria had just
posted drunken pics,
Thirty seconds ago!
So the Nazis shrank in empty clicks
Before a bluish glow.
The Allies could have
America had just
in a fit of virtual lust.
So the two only wrote on each other's walls
And typing; crumbled to dust.
Imagine the long years
of history lost,
to a whole new branch
But never mind about this.
You are hardly listening at all.

Remains Of A Flower
One by one
I love you so
Petal by petal
I want you to know
Second by second
I would never let you go
My sick heart clutched the surroundings on the inside
Filled with unseen love that can't make it's way to the outside
Unseen tears bide, along with these strong feelings that I try and hide
My whole body wants to just curl up every time I see you
Concealing the secrets within, I guess there's nothing else I can do
So like a human flower, the emotions I have for you just grew and grew
Never ceasing, never sleeping, never thinking of anything else
I hate this daydreaming, because I always self-consciously doubt myself
Dwelling over the fact that I never stood a chance at expressing what I really felt
One by one
I couldn't take it anymore
Petal by petal
I had to confess what I could no longer ignore
Second by second
I needed to say everything that I should've said before
But you stopped me, and didn't even give me a chance
You were like a frostbit

If The World is a Book, I Want to Read Every Page.
Let me memorize each dotted "i"
of moonlights freckled face
Trace the silver ripples
of a seashores wrinkled page
Count the auburn stanzas 'tween
the depths of trembling trees
Ride upon the vessel
of a sun-kissed simile.
Open sky-stripped windows
to the sigh of cursive clouds
Shuffle through the metaphors
Awaking through the ground
Slant the sails of poetry
toward continents of sea
Deep into the jungles where
the verses lace the trees.
Catch the winds of free verse
Or the open waves of rhyme
Sift through ocean ballads
where the sunset greets the tide.
Study drops of scripture
as it clicks against the street
Sleep between the pages
of departed poetry.
The Fable of the Stray FoxThe Fable of the Stray FoxThe Fable of the Stray Fox2 years ago in Short Stories More Like This
Just like people the animals hold their own societies, but whilst we elect to live in houses within or outside of cities the animals choose to remain outside all together. Take the fox, perhaps the most cunning and certainly among the dangerous of all animals to roam the woods. The foxes reigned proud in the centre of the woods, kings and queens among the animals there, feared and respected by all who wasn't a fox.
However like the societies of man, the foxes were capable of being unjust and cruel. In the coven of the foxes was born a youngling, he wasn't a runt nor was he a high ranking male but yet he was spurned by all whom was a fox. He wasn't sure why, he didn't feel too different from all the others. He walked like they did and acted like they did yet no matter what his endeavours it only got him shame from his parents and hatred from the coven. So the young fox grew to be alone.
The years and the foxes were unkind to the young fox, he learned to
