A thousand dreams to be in your graceA thousand words I mustered
each word for you, more eloquent then the last.
A thousand breaths I breathed
each breath carrying my aching life unto your mast.
A thousand whispers I spread
each whisper conveying my lovers delight.
Unto you, do I bequeath my lover’s delight.
A thousand gems I mined
each gem tumbled, compared to your elegance.
A thousand cloths I refined
each cloth aches for the fair maidens tread.
A thousand roses I pursued
each rose anxious to home in your locks.
Strained - anxious to home in your locks.
A thousand songs I crafted
each song to clothe you in fine praise.
A thousand tears departed
each tear in remembrance
Waiting for her to come this wayThe breeze tousles through the night and his hair.Waiting for her to come this way7 months ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
He sits in expectance for her to come here;
waiting for her to come this way.
Like that first time; her footsteps echoed so loud.
In a night as such not even the moon could be proud.
An ethereal glow she emitted, an embodying light.
The wind ruffled her black locks like an angel in flight.
Her breath was a sanctifying whisper of life
and her dress; oh a woven fabric of natures device.
Her soft traces upon the earth would have grown
the fruit bearing brushwood, piercing through a stone.
The hair settled; the wings retreated, her eyes slowly set
on a young boy tending tulips. Their
Forgotten RemainsThere once was a great nation a nation with a name.Forgotten Remains10 months ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
But now they are the
forgotten they remain.
The memories they hold,
the tears they contain,
are theirs' alone
only theirs to atone.
Whimpers gently rise;
tears flow again
for time cruelly denies
salvation from pain.
They seek sleep to happy lies
but such tries are in vain.
Dying but living on;
futile hope too moves on.
They're engraved deep in graves,
poor soulless souls enchained.
Confined and enslaved,
with no happiness saved.
They rot in a gorge
where only sorry reigns.
Theirs tales shriek through night
Eternal WarBlood flows in oceans.Eternal War8 months ago in Free Verse More Like This
Fire burns upon the world.
The marching thunders loud.
The soldiers fight to the end.
Battle after battle,
And still no victory.
Death after death
And still no peace.
They all look on,
as men become horrors,
and horrors become men.
They all look on as their fathers fall.
They all look on,
as their friends reach death's door.
All the world has fallen silent,
and now all the world weeps.
For this war shall never end.

she has survived the
messy process and
rests happy and
loathe to lay this new one down, even
swaddled in adjectives,
contented or wailing
she will not sleep
she watches the rise and fall,
the slow-breath blinking
wonders if this
piece of beauty
is old enough to love her
Imperfect PerfectionI cannot rush imperfectionImperfect Perfection5 months ago in Free Verse More Like This
It is a slow demise
Under the wilted skies
Gravity is not forthcoming
I fall until I cannot fall any more
I am suspended
In universal blunders
There are still wonders
That are hidden in catastrophes
And the almighty seas
Spoken like broken words
That never fail to amuse
I lose myself in the imperfections around me
The rose that bows her head
Laughter that is choked back
It does lack
The breath to expound
I am bound
By feathered wishes and gratitude
It is lewd
The way that the world works
There are some perks
The way that you say my name
Life is never a game
Never Let Me GoA cyclone of loathingNever Let Me Go2 weeks ago in Free Verse More Like This
To my lips and I swallow it down,
Down deep into the abyss
Hide behind my ribcage
In that bloody place that beats for you.
Home sweet Hell,
I hate myself.
So how is it then that I can love?
Can you tell me?
Yet I do,
But it hurts because it cannot be.
It is a desolate reality.
Peace has never been found in a frown,
But that is my reflection,
I look away.
I want to see your smile that you save just for me
In pictures that you send.
I want to believe that I am worthy,
Just as you do.
You are so far away
And I am here, unable to escape myself
As I run and run around in circles, like a dog chasing it's tail.
I am weak.
Please forgive me.
I want what I cannot have,
You, all I want is you.
No, not just want, but need, I need you in my life,
As more than just my friend.
I hate myself.
Please say that you love me
And come to me one day in person,
Wrap me up tightly in your arms and don't let go.

I keep trying to spill my guts in this website,
desperately trying to release all the emotions somehow,
But in the end, this isn't as good as a person,
someone to hold you as you cry over memories and thoughts,
And I don't even know what I want from life anymore,
because I had it all worked out,
and my world was spun into a mess of pain and more pain,
and the silence that echos from the laughs has tortured my heart over these past 4 months,
and I still have to hide it all: Every emotion,
Because the one time I broke down they laughed,
and how am I supposed to recover from this never ending misery

Just like the blood in my head
While time itself makes me sad
Blue oceans where I thought about bathing my perfect mind
Who am I fooling? I'm as empty as you, piece by piece I fall
Truth and glory beyond this eddying void I cannot find!
And then I saw: the man was singing desperately, standing tall.
The desperate man is me. The story of sun and rain.
The desperate life I live is this. This story wasn't lived in vain.
Time flows and I remain behind. I'm lost again, I cann

Like the others we can see from afar.
The sun is a source of life and light,
So why not the other stars we see at night?
Countless other worlds could exist.
They might be similar to ours but with a twist.
So maybe when we look up at the sky,
There might be someone looking back from up high.
There's more to this universe than we know,
But we are uncovering it's secrets, even if it's going slow.

A fool's time would be spent, were they to ponder my words.
For a free stream of hopeless rubble comes only from a coward.
Yes a coward may I be, but a madman too you say?
I divulge in my likes, be them lighted halls or dark ways.
Oh a crime should it be for a young child to play;
to color the sky with the darkest shades of gray?
Is it a crime to realize ones inner being, their madness?
To see their flaws, their failures their inner sadness?
To see a lifeless garden within cacti bloomed.
A carpet of dread, flowers of deat

Down into the depths of your soul
They hit you hard, your heart
It thumps as if it were half full
Our eyes burn like wildfires
As I sit there watching you
Nothing more is said
I guess we'll say good bye through and through
Drip, drop and then they came
Each one hit the ground
But I felt them burn my cheek
Still the silence had no shame
And then right in my gut was that knot
It twisted and twirled
My head even whirled
Longer I resisted the worse it got
He just won't understand
I'm not that person, the one
Where everything comes together as planned
You think it's a riddle
Oh, I wish it weren'

Trying to reach the precipice
A sentence or two stops me
They are bland trees
The words are the dried out leaves
I brew expression but it needs more sugar
Doubt is an ocean in drought
There are no waves of thought to overlap me
I surrender to creation
And type letter by letter
Key by key
Trying to find me
But I am as lost as an imaginary friend
Invisible to the keen eyes of pretension
I am here waiting
Within these walls of words
Carry me along because I cannot walk alone
I need phrases to withstand me
Just a few words that will take me home

But I can hide from the danger,
Of my ever dwelling Yesterday.

a smirk persisting alongside; a dead, worthless sneer.
He stares hard yet recognizing not the man he sees
recognizing that man is a desperately elevated dream of his
He wonders if his deeds - reflected - are right
he betrayed his friends, he abandoned his wife
reasons always lurk in the pits of the mind
yet so dark? At times his cynical heart reclined.
He smiled on insults and laughed in disgrace
he knew not what he was so he altered his face
with each turn and bend, with each traffic light
his face twist and turned, losing remnants of sight.

The steepness of your eyes, the endowed visage,
outshining the splendor of nature's foliage
Words wedged in the throat, too shy to be eloquent.
Thus I replied with a smile, yet happiness... distant.
I sighed, a deep slumbering sound, complimenting a tear
for reality had realized my worst nightmare.
Oh the days spent moseying through dense shrubs,
by the beauty of the summer spring where dwell the cherubs.
Oh we shared twice the sorrow as we shared each others pain
yet our memoirs, our companionship let the pain not remai
