Let me drownLet me drown3 years ago in Urban & Spoken Word More Like This
It seemed as calm as an ocean could be
Almost as wide as the sea
With a mind that vast
How couldn't I dive in?
I guess that's why I decided to swim
So I delved into the deep ocean blue
I swam looking for you
I dove into the abyss
And I found this:
A snuffed out light
A heart that someone broke with all their might
A few broken parts
And some lost art
All of this caused me confusion
So I kept going to reach my conclusion
I wanted to see more
I kept straying away from the shore
After awhile I became lost
I felt my mind lose conscious thought
The water around preceded to choke me !
The lights grew darker so that I couldn't see!
I rushed to the surface to get back to land
But the water charged after me as I swam
The surface by then had turned into a storm
The ocean had taken on a horrible form
It consumed the sky and all around
There was no such thing as solid ground
The waves took me and dragged me down.....
And I felt myself float away
and begin to drown.....

i am thankful for the difficult people
and people who have hated me,the enemys
i have met, that where in my life because
they have shown me exactly who i don't
want to be,they have help me grow
and have help me become a better person.
Ab Absurdum - To the AbsurdAb Absurdum - To the Absurd4 years ago in Visual & Found Poetry More Like This
This an ode to what I can see
To enlightened craze and delicate
To exulted passion or desperate vogue...
This is to the absurd.
Have your eyes ever scanned
In search of truth that exists
within us all?
Have you found it? Did you see?
There are merely ships of lost souls on these waters.
Truth: Ab Absurdum!
Where is the honesty, even
in my words?
What truth can I say of the absurd?
My soul is tainted... no innocence resides.
The Truth of Youth
died in another century.
Yet how can I not love the
Should I run from spite or stay
My heart beats with tender love;
I cannot stand it.
So to the absurd
is where I go.
Yet in it I already
The latin tang twists my tongue:
Ab Absurdum... Ab Absurdum.
These ships - these
lost souls -
Their rage burns the sea into
As their dead cries fill the air:
Alas, they are thus here...
Stangled Screams.Stangled Screams.6 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
As of late the passions for your craft still seem to crane
Missing now your ever-human face behind the pain.
No feeling has taken hold, or so it seems to be
Someday soon the pain you scattered will cease to flee
Split the silent scream and sweetly sing your siren songs
Once you told them stories and for each aware of the wrongs
Should we tend to your poison flowers
Or have you let them go
Will you come to pull the poison the world was soon to know
Once you dreamt up words, like the flowing currents, that you drew out with ease
Bluntly now you state the facts as they flock toward the growing breeze
Indescribable beauty that still shuts off and on
Breach the walls and break our minds before they've dissapeared and gone
From the farthest cities will your voice still follow
All the while your dancing demons will still wallow
The winter of the destinyThe winter of the destiny3 years ago in Concrete Poetry More Like This
The snow sweeps all the roads,
The snow sweeps all the steppes,
Your life is full of pain,
No love when no hope steps.
Why have you said 'Farewell' to me
Inside snow-storm's white fuss?
You haven't aim to love me real,
And grinded dreams to dust.
The snow sweeps all the tensions,
The snow sweeps pain of love,
We parted at the threshold
Of destinies above.

Apro la finestra,
ai miei occhi si mostra
una lunga distesa d'acqua.
Sotto il sole brilla,
più di mille stelle
sotto la luna rischiara
le nostre sere,
al tramonto come all'alba,
diventa un fuoco
che riscalda l'anima.
I open the window,
in my eyes it shows
a long stretch of water.
Under the sun shines,
more than a thousand stars
under the moon illuminates
at sunset as dawn,
becomes a fire
that warms the soul.
DawnDawn3 years ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
How dawns the morn so very bright and bold
that night's dark face can only turn away;
and all our dreams in sunlit skies are sold
as eventide gives pardon to the day.
She feels the cloak of dreams unclasp their sway
and fading softly spun into the gold,
that she will rise from sleep and make her way
ere morning grows another second old.

Se nel grande libro del destino sono scritti i nostri due nomi vicini,vedrai che un giorno ci rincontreremo;
se c'è scritto che siamo fatti l'uno per l'altra,la distanza non ci farà così paura...
sarà solo un puntino insignificante nella nostra favola.
Se è amore,quello vero,questo sarà per sempre,e niente e nessuno riuscirà a distruggere questa rosa bianca che mai appassirà...
Ma se la vita non ha in serbo niente per noi,allora destino,uccidi questo sentimento che non mi fa respirare,
e lascia dormire il mio cuore in un dolce letargo.
The book of fate
If in the great book of fate are written the names of our two neighbors,you'll see that one day we will meet again;
if it says that we are made for each other,the distance will not make us so afroid...
will only be an insignificant speck in our fairy tale.
If it's love,the real one,this will be forever and nothing and no one will destroy this white rose that nev
Only a dreamWhat is peace...Only a dream7 years ago in Surrealism More Like This
but a dream of a dream.
A word that has faded from reality.
Last merely a second...
then it's all taken away.
We end up where we started.
Starting over from scratch...
rebuilding what was lost.
Only to have it torn down again and again.
Dream of a dream...
false hope for the naive.
Peace that is only in our minds.
Peace that is only in our homes.
Peace that is only in our children.

A flower called hopeA flower called hope4 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
Just like that day,
When I first met you.
surrounded by flowers
They have died long ago,
withered from what they have been through.
From the lack of air
In the chest
From the constant pain
That has never left
And from the tears,
That are no longer poisoned ,at last.
Just one white rose remained alive,
The only thing that could survive,
And managed through it all.
So tell me,
If you are already gone,
How come you are still blooming in my soul?
El Reflejo De la OscuridadEl Reflejo De la Oscuridad4 years ago in Concrete Poetry More Like This
El tiempo pasa, e inquebrantable suspiro yace del alma
si pienso en el vacío que dejaste tras tu paso,
que fui siguiendo las huellas que dejaste en mi piel grabadas,
sollozando por las noches hasta el primer suspiro del alba.
Lloran las rosas al ver el equívoco de mi existencia,
al ver que la soledad se presenta ante mí con frecuencia.
Y es la desdicha la que hoy me hace pensar
que dos corazones unidos jamás se podrán tocar.
Y no es fácil sentir que tus principios te abandonan
por seguir los consejos de quienes no perdonan.
No es fácil, saber que el cielo está llorando
por un corazón que aún está sangrando,
que, la eternidad se posa ante nuestros ojos
borrando los recuerdos y dejando los despojos.
Dejaré mis señales dibuj
