was caught in my sleep
had barely the time to feel
how fine it was
how slow it was
descending in my throat
down to my empty womb
no one will ever know
nothing left to talk about
the lake exploded today
and everyone's safe

RainRain1 year ago in Free Verse More Like This
When it rains is the sky crying?
Is it the lion dying?
Water falls in droplets from the clouds
Hitting the rooftops really loud
Puddle splashers filled with laughter
Leaping, jumping into the here after
Sweet nectar for the roses
Tickling, trickling down one's noses
Wetting blades of grass
Making one slip and fall on to one's Asp
Making rivers rushing into over flow
Tearing down sand castles leaving and after glow
Turning Mountains into sand
Eroding everything away changing the land

head thrown back,
tendrils of her hair, a cascading fall of water and sense.
the dancing curve of her exposed throat,
a gasp caught there in the shadowsalive with promise.
the space behind the curving arch of her back,
hollow and hallowed, forgotten for the moment.
the press of parted lips against the space above her erratic heartbeat--
yours to claim, yours to cherish.
yours to satisfy.
here, there is no pride, no past, only passion shared.
here, you give in order to receive.
here, you are you until you are not--
until you lose a sliver of that unique identity to become something bigger;
abbreviated to us.
an allegiance of desire.
an alliance of submission.
a privilege of love.

With everything that's inside of me,
I wish you would be here with me.
My heart is aching for your presence
A whole inside..to be filled only by your essence
I'll hope one day we'll get to meet,
At first sight our hearts will wildly beat
And the distance will be just a bad memory.
Accomplishing this dream will be so sweet
I already miss your voice,
The warmest, softest noise
To me it's like a melody,
A lullaby that's meant for me
You say I'm special, and I want to believe its true
but if I'm special, what are you?
You're pure perfection in my eyes,
A perfection in HIS eyes.
All I can say is: I MISS YOU.
And I promise you one day we'll make it through
but for now all this is just a wish,
That every day I pray to come true.
La Trilogie des PrintempsLa Trilogie des Printemps3 years ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
La trilogie des printemps.
Ici, le printemps est une trilogie du temps.
C'est un fruit fragile qui s'ouvre en trois pelures.
Il s'en vient en douce et se sauve à toute allure.
Et un jour on se dit que c'était le printemps.
C'est une entre saison d'un temps qui se compose
D'un hiver qui s'étire pour ne pas partir,
D'un délavé austère où tous les bruns chavirent
Et d'un temps où les fleurs et tous les verts explosent.
La saison du printemps blanc allonge l'hiver,
Cet amant éconduit qui lutte et qui s'accroche.
Plein de chutes de neige en rappel des hier
Où le froid mordait même l'acier et les roches.
La neige fraîche tombée au sol le matin,
L'ivresse troublante d'une chair frémissante
Que la douce clarté habille gémissante
Tel le nacre du sperme léchant une main.
Le froid qui mord la nuit et l'insensibilise,
Le soleil qui tente de réchauffer le jour.
Les matins et soirs basculant presque touj

That Big Blue SkyI sit for many a night to contemplate my right to grasp tightThat Big Blue Sky7 months ago in Philosophical More Like This
the knowledge I hold dear to me. I see people tossing their thoughts
at subjects frought with usleness or lack of reason. I thought I
had fought for the same reasons as others studied with me, instead
I feel treason is a leading sting to bring even the greatest of temples down.
Yet here I sit upon my window, doing what feels like nothing to stop the
poison running through my veins travelling to my brain. It drives me
to the brink as my mind begins to shrink and insanity steps into reality.
The depravity I surround myself with to try but justify it's helpful existence.
But even as I sit here with mysteries of secrets swirling and twirling in my mind,
I crack a knowing smile that even as I sit here and try I cannot break the wonder
of that big blue sky....

My fates were misaligned after that dazzling first time, that words reached my ears of yours my dear.
To justify my life gone awry I had to see you just one more time.
Why wont they let me reach you?
Why won't they just let me talk and say "Who?"
Who are you? Ye who gave me this beautiful determination.
No more lacerations upon my nation of the size of my heart.

Dreamsi have overcome the fear of loss in my dreams…Dreams8 months ago in Urban & Spoken Word More Like This
I awoke feeling greater than Arthur and his knights of the table. yet my fear of your rejection kept my affection locked in their stable.
your face and those eyes help to lullaby my mind to rest. the dancing demons of grand delusions fester and began to be but a pest. I wipe them from my mind leaving behind all aspirations.
These dreams have become but preparations to seek your approval. Removal of certainty of so called destiny is needed to be heeded.
I approach you cautious and meek, when you finally smile at me and gave the answer I seek. The lips you kiss me with make me want to scream.
then I awake again…dreams

The petal falls.
You lean calmly
Against a wall.
He loves me not.
You laugh a bit
A funny thought:
That he would quit.
He loves me.
You smile again
As you think of
Your best friend.
He loves me not.
You're running out.
You tell yourself
Each petal counts.
He loves me.
You relax some now.
The words calm you.
You're not sure how.
He loves me not.
Your heart's racing.
You leave the wall.
You begin pacing.
He loves me.
It can't be right.
The last petal.
This ends tonight.
He loves me not.
But there's no strife.
A silly flower
Can't rule your life.
forever boundsMy love for you, forever bounds. My caring for you, reaches higher than tallest mountains in all the land. I feel so alive, so free and happy. My love, for you is boundless. I soar past the stars adn galaxies, yet my love for you still hasnt ended. I scale the highest mountain tops, yet it now seems like such a small feet. I surround myself with riches, yet none compare to what you are worth in my eyes. I enslave my self to my passions, my love for games and puzzles. But you, are the greatest puzzle yet. Nothing compares to the safety I feel, when i look into your adoring eyes. I look in your eyes, and am lost. Lost, in a sea of your beauty. I look at you, and I am drawn in. Lost in wonder, lost in love. Lost, in pure happiness. You are now my life. My most important things to me has always been my writings, because they were me, like I was writing pieces of my fucked up soul into it. But next to you, they seem so worthless and useless. Nothing compares to you, nothing. Youforever bounds1 year ago in Free Verse More Like This

dieI wish I could see life in a different light, but everytime I do; the sky falls and smashes me. I wish I could die inside, I wanna be so numb that Im dead inside. I want a place, where I can escape. A place, where everything was ok. But I dream, only dream. The truth, is no fucking releaf is coming. The walls are closing in, the cieling smashing down. I scream, and scream. But no one is there to hear me. Everyone is hurting me, rejecting. Because they know, I'll never be good enough. Never, not ever in their eyes. Fuck it hurts. I wanna take a steal knife, and plunge it deep in my heart. Cut out, whats left and rot away. Empty and alone, so fitting a demise. My greatest fear, coming true. I lift my knife, cut after cut. Hoping i lose all my blood, wanting soo bad, to just die. I wish, I hope. So vainlessly, but i now it'll never be. So I cut, and scream.

How Can There Be An Ending, If It Never Began?

Yet They Died Cause They Loved Each Other,
And So It Ends, Just Like That....

Me and you.
we were once
One in the same.
We finished so fast
Death grimaced and paled:
Never did I stop loving you.
I crossed my heart
I swore to die.
I need naught a needle
For it's implied.
My failure, noted
Written down in record,
I broke my promise...
And my punishment
So cruel, I deserve.
I made you cry.
I may still love you
And whisper your name
On soft kisses to the memory
That I still hold
And I still play:
But I never will hurt you again,
My love, never!
This I promise
And one I take
To the grave.

Am I still just that small hum,
That annoying buzz?
Am I still worthy enough to ignore?
Of course I am, silly me.
Who am I to think differently?
I'm not that same boy any more.
Now I own a voice, and use it.
