Change the lens
Soften the scene
Show you what you want to see
Now I'm losing me
Who is me?
Who are you?
You think you have
the power to change me
You think you've played me
Every time you break me
I remake me
So now I ask...
Who are you?

Our Spirits Would Soar Our Souls Renew
Then Mankind Would See A Better Life
Void Of Evil Greed And Strife
The World Would Be A Beautiful Place To Live
If We Would Only Learn To Give
Instead We Take And Desire Of Things
Not Blessed By HIM Who Love Did Bring
HE Came And Said My Brother Man
Accept This Gift From The Golden Lamb
Some Did Listen To The Words HE Said
Others Did Laugh And Turned Their Head
As They Nailed HIM To A Cross Of Wood
Still HE Blessed Them As Only HE Could
The Years Have Passed Since That Holy Day
When HE Walked The Earth Taking Sin Away
If We Would Only Love As HE Wan
A HUG IS ALL YOU'LL NEED TO SAYIf There's Someone You Love, Someone You've WrongedA HUG IS ALL YOU'LL NEED TO SAY1 year ago in Free Verse More Like This
And You Don't Know What To Say -
Don't Shrug Your Shoulders, Giving Up Hope
Leaving It For Another Day
For Life's Wake Is Short, Don't You Know
There May Be No Words To Hear -
As You Place The Flowers, Shed Your Tears
Upon The Earth Holding Someone So Dear
Your Mind In A Daze, Emotions On Fire
Wishing You Could Turn Back Time -
As You Gaze Upon A Loved Ones Grave
Memories Of When Everything Was Fine
If There's Someone You Love, Someone You've Wronged
Don't Leave It For Another Day -
With Love In Your Heart, Hug Them Close
It's All The Words You'll Need To Say
Soulless PoetWill you look this way again?Soulless Poet1 year ago in Free Verse More Like This
If only those who read my work knew
How loveless and soulless I am
They would toss it in disgust
Like the fliers of New York City
I am ready to ignite
But for what?
A bottle rocket
Ready to shoot fire and shards of glass
Aimed at the innocent responsible party
But there is no cause
No damsel to fight for
You know I would fight for her
If I knew who she was
My chest is a hearth of fire
An oven for my heart
Solid as clay
perfectly molded in the shape of nothing
Useless as the day it was cloned
I have no whimsical grandfather to look after
How I long for a story or two
About how he straddled

But let me say it here.
This poem is about
What I hold most dear.
A few simple words from him
Can make me feel so glad.
And when he insults me,
I don't even feel that mad.
I'm the girl who made the vow -
To never fall for someone.
My heart once woven tightly,
Has suddenly become undone.

Creation Stirs Behind The Veil Of Time
Bringing Forth A New Era That Of Mankind

None Has Such Strange Whims And Desires
The Candle Flickers, The Flame Dies
The Innocent Child Softly Sighs
Knowing No Shadows In Life's Light
Free From The Darkness Of Human Plight
Delicate In Thought Like Threads Of Silk
Weaved And Adorned With Gaia's Milk

Confused And Dazed, Wondering Why
Soul In A Turmoil Just Wishing To Die
The Brightest Day Now Shadows Of Night
Infecting The Heart So It Sees No Light
Thoughts Entombed By What's Been Said
A Loved One Lost At Twilights Ebb
Guided By One Whose Words They Believe
Not Seeing The Venom That Flowed To Deceive
The Only Hope Now Is To Pray To The Light
To Guide Them Back To All That Is Right.

I have loved you all along.
Denying it will not help
my feelings so very strong.
You either like me or
Dislike me to the core.
Telling me you do both?
Perhaps that's all I can ask for.
My heart breaks 'cause of the truth -
That you look for another.
You will never think of me.
Watching you makes me suffer.

As I watched The Birth Of Dawn
Softness And Beauty Of Stars Had Past
My Heart Still Heavy And Forlorn
My Spirit Was Ebbing I was About To Go
When Something Caught My Eye
A Solitary Cloud So Pure And White
Appeared From Way Up High
My Eyes Now Ember With Rising Sun
Saw An Amazing Sight
Within Its Fleece A Golden Glow
And A Butterfly Took Flight
Such Beauty I Had Never Seen
It Sat Upon My Hand
And Said To Me In A Voice So Soft
I Was A Spirit Of The Lamb
My Soul Was Open My Heart Poured Forth
It Listened With Silent Embrace
And When I Had Finished It Smiled At Me
With Serenity, Peace And Grac

Where is the Trust?
Trust in people
Trust in yourself
Trust in Love and Truth
Why so unsure?
About getting hurt
About hurting others
About the strength of your heart
How about risking?
Risking and open up
Risking and be free
Risking and maybe

True Love in yourself
True Love in someone special
and True Love in everyone

Don't lock away your feelings

Relentless, that last little flame
Calling you forth, will you answer them?
Or will you lie in the pit of your condemn?
No one here but you
Do you even have the slightest clue?
Are you sure?
Your actions, once so pure
Empty promises, look through the haze
Past your emotions of maddening craze
Beyond the shadows and shroud
Look at this overwhelming crowd
Their daunting smiles gleaming
In this state, are you only dreaming?
Paint the mirrors black
There's something deep within you lack
Keep away from the light
but don't you dare walk into the night

With you intentionally exasperating me to my breaking point
And me running away again in submission?
You are sending me away for a final time,
Leaving all this still and stagnant water under the bridge,
And still adding to the murk in it.
These are the final days to attempt to mend our broken relationship;
After all this time, things have still not changed.
When I leave this time, I'm not coming back.

Does anyone ever see me moan..
When something rubs my wrists; the ones never shown?
Cant a single person see that I've fallen apart?
Haven't they heard the breaking of my heart?

This sense that I am spinning in place
On a slow moving race
This river of indecision
Slit with precision
Their veins throb to be sliced
Their bloody drippings
Soiling the page
Where it is written
Where is the sage
That speaks with a glowing tongue
Saying that all is one
Why do I feel this disconnection
Why is everything black
And why do I lack
Where are you now
And how do I go about being
What is it that they say
That everything happens for a reason
I say that is treason

Your life's made up of days,
The best events can drag you down
If you insist upon waking
Without shaking off the frown,
With a smile,
You can walk through miles,
Strewn with shattered shards of glass
To whom it may concern,
Your life's made up of feelings,
The hate awakes inside
Be sure it's short-lived
Lest it leave you weak,
For love is the answer,
And though the steps are fraught with risk,
You'll quickly learn to be a cosmic dancer
To whom it may concern,
Your life's made up by you,
Through direst drear and misery
You could find the strength to be

Think of you.
I look out the window and imagine us together.
Will it happen?
Most likely not.
We only share a few words,
And sit together if we have to.
We're just acquaintances.
I wonder if you'll ever see me as I see you.
Sure, I sometimes wish for that to happen,
but I know it won't.
I don't mind though.
I'm stronger than I use to be.
I really don't need a boy by my side.
But, I'll still continue to think those words:
"I love you!"

I don't understand why I feel like this

You entice me, make me happy
And most of all, you love me back

You were the reason I was happy
Days of feeling comfortable
In my skin,
Of knowing I was good enough,
If only for a while.
And only for a while it was.
You were why I was smiling
So many smiles.
Feelings I'd forgotten abound,
And now it's like we never mattered.
You were the reason I could sleep
My only source of dreams.
No more nightmares,
Fears fought away
Cradled in hopes,
My only form of safety
Found in your voice.
A voice I'm afraid I'll one day forget.
Now you're why I'm confused

This pain allows me to shed my tears,
And they burn along my skin,
And I have to force myself to keep crying,
For my heart is not satisfied by the small amounts of my weeping,
My heart is pounding at my rib cage,
And it overwhelms my body and my head,
