To love youTo hold you is to live,
To kiss you is to breathe,
To see you smile is to be happy.
To see you go is to die,
To argue with you is sadness,
To see you cry is to be torn.
To see you have left is unimaginable,
To see the pity in people's eyes is to feel ashamed,
To see my life wrecked is to be ruined.
To love him forever is to say the truth
SilenceIt is thereSilence2 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
When I ask if he still loves me
And the rebounding quiet screams
His unspoken response.
And the occasional reluctant verbal translations:
"I don't want to talk about this"
"We are not having this conversation"
Codify this as the official language of our domestic domain.
"Only silence is spoken here."
It is there
When I ask my child:
"Why have you done this thing?
Endangered yourself, hurt me, hurt others,"
And her reply consists only of a murderous glare.
How dare I break the house rule and speak the forbidden tongue?
And I'm left to wonder if she even cares.
Do my words even matter?
Am I even here at all?
It is there
When my best ideas are offered aloud.
Did I misinterpret the fact that I was elected to this position?
Was it a perception of reticence that was my sole qualification?
My words echo off the walls in the absence of noise that follows,
Meriting nary even an acknowledgment,
Just the deafening roar of soundlessness
Admonishing me for
Breaking this hallowed silence
Their StoriesI've read so many stories,Their Stories2 years ago in Concrete Poetry More Like This
yet none appeal to me
I want the weak minded thought's,
I want to know their dreams
I'm sick of strong male characters,
and feisty female minds
I want someone who can't take it,
someone who's lost the fight
I want the truth behind the lies
Not the mask that hides the shy
I want their inner feelings,their core
I want to know their hearts, do they feel remorse?
I want to know their fears, their worries
I need to know who they are, their stories
Angel TearsImagine a raindrop is an angel's tearAngel Tears2 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
Falling from heaven on Gaia's mortal fear
Weeping in unity their children's lost soul
Heaven's pure spirit evil now doth control
Eden of rapture consumed by time's flow
A lost utopia where gluttony doth grow.
Alluring serpent's lair humans covet the bait
Devourer of truth so poisoned with hate
Innocence now lost in maelstrom of desire
Purity long blackened by greed's hungry fire
The spirit debased evil darkens the heart
The nefarious abductor tears the soul apart
The moment approaches the farmer shall reap
Love now eternal for faithful lost sheep
Gnashing of teeth those left in despair
Time now elapsed for repentance and prayer
Renounce the darkness and take gentle heed
Embrace the truth be the Lamb's seed

tall blades of grass, cowering with a breeze,
a howl escaping them.
the notes with the wind curve across dunes,
mountainous joints curl with each pull,
sand escapes through protective eyelashes,
spreading its wings, gritty feathers,
enveloping a woman,
wearing time on her face like a veil,
she imagines the rugged strings
vibrating against her satin fingers
are the throats of songbirds,
cut from their beaks.
her tears and soft sobs write songs for the harp

saw him smile to her for the last time.
So Far ForwardIt's those moments,So Far Forward2 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
When someone you used to know
Everything is familiar,
The love that was there, feels odd.
Remember all the times,
Good, and bad.
Though you're unsure if you could ever have more.
It's as if the chapter ended,
And you're wondering,
If they could ever be apart of your novel.
You've gone so much forward,
They're still so far behind.

And her reply was swift, thought out with a poetic hint, 'Thats what I tell myself. It hasn't. Its because I know and therefore cannot lie to myself. I am sitting with truth and wishing it was a lie.'
He could only sit and stare at his phone for a moment, and became a loss for words. With the reply he gave her, she had said this.
'Love is the incurable instanity that eventually infects us all. And on occasion, it kills.'
Another wordless reply came to greet her.
Find The DreamSearch deep within your heart, deep into the darkness where faded dreams are kept. Don't give up; the one you are looking for is there somewhere. When you find it, hiding in a corner weeping at lost years, don't leave it there; it's scared and hates the darkness. Lift it gently into the light and watch it transform into a brighter wiser dream than it once was.Find The Dream2 years ago in Philosophical More Like This

We all know heroes
In real life and fake
They stand for something
That we all need
A light in the dark
A flicker, a spark
Is all we need
There is evil
And that's just a part of life.
Guns and grenades
Are as common
As flags at a parade.
We all grow up
Seeing and knowing
Of the violence
That lies deep within
Each and every one of us
Most have control
Most have something to live for
Most have something called love,
That cancel out the evil
But that is not true of all
There is always the dark
Full of unknown fears
That leave their mark
Don't follow that spark,
The light that glows brighter
Burning a hole through the dark
I wish I knew
How to fix the world
How to fix the people
Who can't fix themselves
For every hero
There is a villain.
For every life
There aren't enough willing.
Life is worth living
But we can't always look past
The titles we have given
Can't always decipher

LoveLove; we all need love in this world,Love2 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
But God, how do we tell if it's just lust for a girl?
The devil has my mind in a twirl,
Lord, do you feel what I feel?
Can you heal this sick appeal?
You always stop, you try to stop,
But you get addicted.
And when you think you've made on top,
That's when you drop,
It's back to hell; back to reality,
Can't you tell you're a monster loving lustfully?
Once you're done, there's nothing left but emptiness,
Where's this happiness that the media promised?
If only you knew it was a lie, all lie,
There's no love truer than the one in sky.
But why, why do I give in to the lies?
My heart and my mind are at different parts of life,
So God, I pray for that day you come a take my pain away.

Mr. Ted by my side,
And listen hard for the thing
That crawls around outside.
He'll start with the scratching,
It's always the same,
His claws carving the face
Of the wooden door frame.
Then he'll move onto the blood
Seeping beneath my door,
Dripping from the walls,
Covering the floor.
The wardrobe will squeak,
Those green eyes appear,
Voices will whisper
Dark words in my ear.
Their dead hands will tug
At the edge of my sheets
And insects will crawl
All over my feet.
I lay and wait
For their games to begin.
But tonight will be different,
I whisper with a grin,
Tonight I will show
Those monsters a scare.
They can come back again,
IF they dare.

I want back my old life

Flame"I saw red."Flame2 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
What a curious, infernal thing to say -
Truly, I didn't know I felt this way.
So immediately I sought out whatever assistance
I might find to steel this compromised flame resistance.
"Envision what you wish you banish," my teacher said.
So I fumed with a fury and visualized the red.
"Out damned spot, out I say..."*
Oh that it were so easy to just simply scold away.
Flash of red...
I saw as I stirred awake in bed.
Feeling the sun's gentle kisses, its rays streaming across my head.
And I turned to embrace a lingering phantasm
In a partial dream-state as I reached...O...
...Oh....Oh.... the burning red,
That sizzles, and sears, and scorches my flesh
In the torment of taboo I've found myself enmeshed.
So I cried to every sympathetic spirit,
And every Voodoo Loa that was available to hear it,
"If there be no fuel to sustain this soul,
Then cool my heart to the black of coal."
...Oh.... but still, still the red...
As the sparks flew higher
And I danced 'round the pyre to the dru
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.

I'll stand by youEvery step you take in your journey thro life.I'll stand by you3 years ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
Whatever route you choose to take yourself.
Whichever path you follow to reach your goal.
I will walk with you.
Whatever mood takes hold to bend your path.
However low your spirit weighs you down.
In your darkest hour when hope seems lost.
I will sigh with you.
What decisions you make to swerve your course.
When defeat looms close to stifle dreams.
And the easy way is to just let go.
I will fight with you.
Whenever tears run down a lowered cheek.
However long the night steals your sleep.
Whatever sobbing makes your shoulders heave.
I will cry with you.
When false accusers howl to condemn.
And your lip trembles in uncertain thought.
If your confidence deserts in cowardly run.
I shall stand by you.
When your frail step falters, weakens and fails.
And hope's thin thread is about to snap.
Your way is clouded with emotional debris.
I will stay with you.
But every step you climb to rise above this.
Each resolve you make to improve your life.

Incoming swirl of watery hand,
That sweeps away
Sun glistens on the sparkling crests,
As they seek to calm and finally rest,
Their long journey,
Both wild and free.
The heave and swell of daily tide,
Of water's ever flowing ride.
From high to low
In ebb and flow.
The waves disturb fresh salty air,
As they push on with liquid flair.
Upon the shore.
Wind and wave will dance together,
Matching mood to prevailing weather,
Or maelstrom riot.
Twice daily tides visit the beach,
The moon decides how far they reach.
A gentle wash that soothes the ear,
Calms the mind to banish fear.
Of watery sigh.
How plaintive is the endless weep,
Scrunching pebbles as they leap,
To kiss the shore
