Dream of ReasonStill as night thoughts drift up towards the velvety blue diamond sprinkled skiesDream of Reason4 months ago in Concrete Poetry More Like This
Fleeting into the galaxies of oblivion...
restlessly searching behind closed eyes.
The luminous window perched wide open...
awaiting to be searched and released by the unspoken.
Here within this realm, filled with rainbow prism possibilities
lay awaiting for all that are willing to see.
Soaring to the highest peaks...defying gravity...
Submerging down to the lowest depths of uncharted seas.
Hidden in rhymes and riddles.
Casted in shadows of symbols.
Inhaling the breath of WISDOM.
Still as night thoughts drift up towards the velvety blue diamond sprinkled skies
Sifting through filtered realities, the ability to love all in which we see.
No more tears to cry...survived the ever changing seasons...
Conceived in this moment the dream of reason.

From the dawn that rises.
And the breeze that flows.
The sun high just enough.
To reflect what has past.
Though I know it is hard.
To not see clearly at yourself.
For I know it is real.
As I see it in your eyes.
All you need is belief and you shall win.
So here I am.
Just you and I.
In the suns glow
Let's make this a trend.

that from the bottom of my broken and barren soul,
I have now lost all self-control.
Arms outstretched and weightless,
suddenly metamorphosing into wishful wings...
To jet-set and take flight,
flapping fearlessly with the fervour of the somber moonlight.
Time eroded and erased.
A twisted time from within.
Swimming breathlessly through the sugary swept space...
Universe unfolding and colliding in a perfect run of grace.
Jagged journey from the inside looking out.
Spatial gap cannot find the direct route.
Buried too far beneath the treasure trap...
never care to ever look back.
Seek and Find let it in unwind.
Sucked back dripping into the vortex of time.
High above the tree-tops once again,
wings weightlessly swinging.
Air infused portal now back to the beginning.
It has all been said and done before,
when we enter that darkened and shadowy door.
If there is a Question there is an Answer like once before.
Soul DeepThe internal dialogue inside my headSoul Deep4 months ago in Free Verse More Like This
sounding off like a springboard--waves transmitted.
Inspiration, thoughts, and words...floating...
No letters to form words...no words to form sentences...
Breaking down to feelings...Soul Deep.
Betrayed by thoughts.
Feelings surrendering to concrete brick words.
Building upon an architectural design within the neurotransmitters of the mind.
Bricks like chains are meant to be broken, the words become the unspoken.
Breaking down to feelings...Soul Deep.
Jump in take a dive...
Emotional realm, just an ache for the chambers of the heart to take.
Pumping hot molten manifestation overtaken by the cool breeze sensation.
Simple childhood faces, music within their laughing graces...
Back to the basics.
Breaking down to feeling...SOUL DEEP.

by Uwe Lammler
We live in tribes, where strife and envy
From the edge of history cries out for fratricide
We dream in forests with dense foliage,
In the fog and below the silence of the Rauhnacht,
We reign in legends, sung from far away,
Noone penetrates in the glow of our Sun Fire
And lately became a name our taint and reward
But even our becoming was always passion.
The wall of the Romans cut through our land,
The West and the South supported the enemy
And bought from outside with good profit
Amber and various household items made of tin,
But even the tamed in the Roman state,
Thought about renunciation and vi

The sky was filled with grey wisps of dark clouds, the air crisp as it caressed her pale skin. She swayed in the breeze, her fingers cold as she watched the leaves beneath her feet, their colours golden and burnt red, touching brown and a light orange. They were broken by her steps and piled high over the muddy ground.
Her hair whipped around her face, catching on her parted lips that were a faint shade of pink. She did not reach up to remove the caught hairs, but left them to do as they pleased. Her hat was beginning to slip from her head although she did not adjust it back over her ears.
Dirt was smeared over her cream colour coat where s

Is this a nightmare,
Or is it a dream?
Go and explore it,
If you dare.
It may play tricks
On your mind,
But I can guarantee,
Youre going to scream;
You may be surprised
By what you find.
What is that sound?
BOOM, BOOM, BOOM.
Youre terrified by something youve found,
But the noise is echoing;
Its coming from another room.
Your heart skips a beat;
You wait for the sound to vanish,
But you begin to panic;
You can feel the vibrations at your feet.
You turn to run
Because youre completely shocked,

Your love was like a small scented candle
Your little flame burned bravely in my darkness
I breathed your fragrance deep into the heart of me
My ragged wings unfurled
But a harsh word extinguished the bright flame
In a puff of anger my beautiful world
Was once more lost in darkness
I'll never fly again
Love and HateLove says no lies,Love and Hate5 months ago in Free Verse More Like This
Hate is the one who gets you by in hard times.
Don't ever mix the two up,
For they are not two,
They are one.
With love comes war,
And with war,
And with jealousy,
Admire others to be admired,
Create and look at others creations.
Practice and watch others do the same,
It is time to change.
Criticism is a fine example of love and hate,
It is often mixed,
Resulting in many debates.
For with love comes hate,
And with hate comes love.
Spark another's imagination,
But don't forget to find your own inspiration.
For without loving others,
There will be no l

and this determines our choices,
our moods, our gestures, our actions,
balanced on a tiny metal edge.
Hands is not always in the front,
it may be tails,
or nothing at all.
Just like solitude isn't always bitter,
it can be safe and sound,
Friends may be friends,
or they may be masked snakes,
or just elephants, trampling you down
on their way up.. or down.
Summer rain can be disgusting
while snow may be beautiful,
or it could all be meaningless
before the beauty of a warm May afternoon.
Silence is called insolence,
but offtimes it's pure gold.

A heart so pure and young.
How can I not be wrong?
A girl like you comes along.
Only once in this life.
For I made you my Wife.
An everlasting love.
That will fly forever.
In the sky of a thousand doves.
The distance is tough.
Future holding rough.
But, my heart is set in stone.
You are the one thing I want alone.
So hear my plead.
I am here with you.
Loving you is my part.

The Caged FriendsThe Caged Friends2 months ago in Free Verse More Like This
I've lost myself in darkness
Wrapped in bitterness all around
Searching for the unknown answers
But no questions, none, at all to be found
Maybe these tears that have fallen
Maybe these scars that won't heal
Are for the sorry's that can't be replaced
Or for the lies left concealed
If I could rewrite the past
I would speak all my words left unsaid
Yet I'm flipping through pages
Speaking for words left, by you, instead
When I wanted you to believe in me
Like Soul Sisters said they would
Screaming and yelling in rebellion
Leaving me in the rain there I stood
Hung up on my room wall
A poster painted with our names
In my eyes it was forever

The moment I wake up.
The thought of you comes to mind.
I seem to forget the world.
As I hold you in mine.
I feel your waist in hand.
Your hair in every strand.
You are far away.
For which I must be dreaming.
Though not cry these tears.
Of a separating cage.
A terrifying wall.
Because I am tall.
Climbing our obstical.
Just to get to you.
This is how much your love,
Truly means to me.
With the power of a thousand kites.
Love At Far Heights.

It will lead the way.
From sea to sea.
Bay to bay.
Many are blind.
Yet they can see.
That golden light.
That leads the way.
To a home we call Earth.
For it's the one thing.
That sparkles your eye.
In every glance,
I can see you too.
And feelings of blue.
Can always set in.
Glowing from the waters.
At our deepest feelings.
But know when the sun goes down.
Over our shoulder at dusk.
The golden light will lead us to night.
For the next time I see you.
Is when the world awakes.
Right into the eyes.
Of that Golden Light.

The FaeriesI walked alone in the woodsThe Faeries2 months ago in Free Verse More Like This
With a heavy and sorrowing heart
My one true love had gone from me
So hard for us to part
I came upon a shady glade
The sun streamed gold between the trees
And all the ground was as a sea
Of bluebells swaying in the breeze
I lay down in the sea of blue
To rest my troubled mind
For grief had stolen sleep away
And peace was hard to find
And as I lay upon the ground
I fancied I heard a ringing sound
The breeze was fluttering all around
Like a million gossamer wings
I opened my eyes and beheld a sight
That filled me both with wonder and fright
My own true love in the golden light
Dancing on shimmering wings
The faeries swirled around her hair
The sweetest perfume filled the air
Her step was light, she floated there
Held high by her rippling wings
When I sleep I see her still
Dancing with a smile
And when I wake I linger there
For just a little while
Though I've often searched and searched
Always it’s in

Strings of the Heart play symphonies, unknown and
Strange to mortal men. Weak are these silent
Melodies yet, eternally do the notes resound through out nomadic
Spirits; bringing even the most free to beg
For mercy on bent knees of anguish but, the

Above this Muse as Authors and Finishers.

Autour de moi surgissent les sifflements des trains,
Qui signent de tristes départs, d'heureux retours,
Les âmes descendent comme une perle sort de son écrin,
Je les regarde chacune, et je cherche l'amour.
Toutes défilent toujours plus vite, plus nombreuses,
À peine ai-je le temps de scruter leurs visages,
Que soudain au cur de cette ambiance vaporeuse,
Une fragrance unique et enivrante se dégage.
Si troublante que Saint-Lazare prend cette teinte,
Légère et brumeuse telle que Monet l'avait peinte.
D'un pas je m'éloigne puis d'un autre je m'approche,
De mes mains tremblantes tes jou
