Memories from the Moonlight
--------Memories from the Moonlight---------
☾ ☾ ☾ ☾ ☾ ☾ ☾ ☾ ❤ ☽ ☽ ☽ ☽ ☽ ☽ ☽ ☽
Dancing underneath the moon,
Its shining touch,
Remembrance of life and love,
All to be forgotten,
In the blink of an eye,
as long as the wind whispers on my back,
The howls of the night whispering softly in my ear,
The memories of time gently fading,
The black and white photo dusty and broken,
Slowly aging as time trickles by,
How many minutes go by?
How many seconds have left the serenity?
Will everything be forgotten?
Only Time may tell...
Will hearts still be true?
And the wind still guiding me?
As one sits...
As one waits...
As one dances underneath the moon...
In hopes to find its lost memories of time.

Half a mask
Half the truth
From a haunting past
Half a grin
Half a wave
Half paying attention
As the world spins by
Half a try for conciousness
When the day is done.

You're supposed to be intelligent.
So why don't you get it?
Are you stupid or something?
You're not allowed to make mistakes.
You're not allowed to break.
You're not allowed to cry.
YOU'RE NOT ALLOWED TO LIVE!
Because you must be perfect.

Would you sing along
Would you dance under the stars
If I asked you to
When you see the sun
Will you think of me
And all the fun weve had.
Or will you remember the bad
The tears and the pain
If I spoke a secret
Would you listen to the words
Would you comfort me
If I cried in your arms
When you watch the clouds
Will you remember our love
The times we spent together
Or will the pain over power
And erase what we had
Would you remember me
If we met on the street
Or would you just pass me by
Like a stranger on the road
Do you wonder
As I do
Or are you content
With where your life has gone
Do you cry
Or have you simply moved on
To bigger and greater things
I cannot answer
My own tears
The pain they bring me
The fear they leave
Do you feel the pain I do
I have to wonder
Do you here my cries
But what does it matter
Where has it gone
You have left
For good I think
But still I wonder
if we met
would you know me
would you cry with me
or ignore my pleas
Demons of the NightHidden in shadows, kept away from the lightDemons of the Night3 years ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
Are the unknown enemies, the demons of the night
Who live on our fear and yet die from fright
These living contradictions, these demons of the night
Demons of the night who haunt us in our dreams
They find the weakness in our psyche and tear at the seams
Yet, they flow fast in our minds, like a river in the rain
They cause us so much misery, yet they themselves are in pain
Hidden from the sun and the light of the moon
But the lights from their hearts, from that, they aren't immune
They are predators, we are prey, and on us they leave their mark
But, in a sense, they're just like us...so why are we scared of the dark?
We Reach...I surrenderWe Reach...5 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
into a sweet slip of your tongue
I stand before you
naked and needy
into the depth of your scars
I stand before you
breathless and greedy
Swallowed by your eyes
freed by your touch
into the truth of living
I stand awakened
scared and alive
into what comforts me
I stand in front of you
ready and relieved
Swallowed by your eyes
freed by your touch
I search for the art
in this existence
I find you
into some fantasy world
I retreat into a love song
drunk and happy
into what I think is alchemy
I want nothing more than you
honest and flawed
Swallowed by your eyes
freed from myself
There Was a Storm TodayThere Was a Storm Today3 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
The palms of rain and soil applauded as they met,
twisting their fingers to knot a streaming brook.
Lightning followed, pounding its fists against the smoking sky,
While gusts of wind erupted; raindrop fireworks.
Mist began to swirl above the steaming pavement-
(reminding me of those winters by the lake so long ago.)
The puddles chased the passing storm to clear
the dusted streets and wash the trees of poor habits.
Again the lightning flickered, like a dying silver bulb
swinging by a string in some attic from the past.
The storm exhales once more to retract its mighty arms.
And so the afternoon awaits the sun to press her fingers through the clouds
So the birds can fly again.

lurking shadows atop gravestones,
long-limbed, and hungry.
We were hips and stitched lips.
Clinging widows to a dying mate.
You held my hand, whispering,

And in the end,
like fallen soldiers.
Phantom GirlDark eyes in a snow-white face,Phantom Girl2 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
Arrayed in linen and lace.
Feet that barely brush the ground,
Voice that never makes a sound.
Tears cascading like the rain,
Heart a poor cage for the pain.
Too cold for the grace of sun,
Seeing all, but seen by none.
Deadly KissShe fell in love with his vicious lips.Deadly Kiss4 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
Got trapped into his deadly kiss.
She loved to play with dangerous things,
But didn't know how much pain it would bring.
His smile caught her playful eyes,
She didn't know that smile held so many lies.
He was so perfect, in so many ways.
They're love lasted for only a few short days.
Now she lays,
In that casket bed.
She never listened to the warnings, or what we said.
You could see those bite marks on her neck by her veins,
I can't imagine all the emotional pain.
I let her slip right through my fingers,
And now her presence always lingers.
She was playful, sweet, and loving, but now that's all in the past.
She went away and died so fast..
His love was strong but his temptation worse.
Then again he had to live with that horrible curse.
He couldn't help it, and I could see the pain in his face,
And now that sweet girls in a better place..
The quiet onesThe Quiet OnesThe quiet ones3 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
It's the quiet ones you have to watch out for:
the ones who sit in class, doodling in their notebooks.
Alone they're harmless and keep to themselves.
But don't be fooled, their brains are a flurry of activity.
Put two or more of them together, and you'll wonder what the heck happened.
These "quiet ones" start talking, start plotting.
They've planned each other's brutal deaths....multiple times.
They've discussed the zombie apocalypse....and how they'd start it.
The end of the world has four backup plans....to ensure its demise.
And you can almost guarantee your death has been penciled in for next Tuesday.
So be careful, 'cause it's the quiet ones you have to watch out for.

In the darkest of my days
you are the smile
everyone loves to see on my face
you are the warmth
in my heart of many sorrows
you are my yesterday
And you are my tomorrow
You made my heart love
yet you also made it shatter
to me you are all that matters
Your the thoughts in my head
the blanket in my bed
your the pictures in my room
the cause of all my doom
your the tears seeping from my cheeks
why I'm always feeling so weak
your my reason for a happy life
my wonderland dreams at night
your everything to me, why can't you see?
your the guy for me.

Nightdance and ShadowplayCome on, all you ghosties let's make one last stand.Nightdance and Shadowplay3 years ago in Urban & Spoken Word More Like This
Dive through the mirrors of our hands,
wonderland the way we script our souls
into the spine of each woman we love
like an arpeggio, like a broken chord
splitting the night sky of New Orleans
two months after Katrina painted the town.
Blue as the cracked and jagged line that snow-
shuddered mountains draw in the memory of sand
between sky and shattered, the calligraphy of the earth
we lie and say isn't our own, come on, all you ghosties.
Let's pretend that when the glass menageries broke,
they didn't become snow, that every time
the sky writes you a love letter, you don't feel evergreen
needling guilty beneath your holly skin,
a calligraphy we lie and say isn't our own.
She hikes stone hands against mountains,
a sharp cursive of shattered glass.
Come on, all you ghosties. Run.
Blue as lightning racing rain.

I wouldn't cry
I wouldn't care
Why am I lying to myself?
It's getting me nowhere
If the true sets us all free
Then why does it lead to greater dispute?
I keep telling myself lies to try to make my life easier
What a silly thing for me to do...
There is no easy way in life
If things happen.. Then I guess there's nothing I can do
Even if those things end up breaking my heart
In The GardenIn The Garden3 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
The sunlight threw its hair across the peeling iron fence
Bathing rosebud domes in deep vanilla shades
Katydids clicked their thighs as moonbeamed moths ducked
Taking shelter beneath shadowed petal veils
I kissed the pale dawn, leaping over iron fence
My barefoot soles left yellow streaks across the silver stones
In the shadow of a sparrow I kept the garden path
One by one the slender trees curtsied as I passed
The liquid honey sunlight filtered through the Autumn dawn
And here I spent my afternoon, Dreaming winters gone

I won't mind what you say.
I will listen anyway.
Your beauty is impeccable,
Your strength is unmatched.
You can do anything you strive for.
Be prepared for an attack.
I'll stand right beside you.
I'll let nothing pass.
Say what you want.
Let me know.
I will see you glow.

We Dreamed Of Silver SailsWe Dreamed Of Silver Sails3 years ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
Remember those winters by the lake so long ago?
We were bundled in cotton and swaddled in snow.
Soft naked footprints 'cross paralyzed sea.
The breath of our skin left a pathway of steam.
Like music box figures, we'd spin on ten toes.
Our breath fogged the walls of our hourglass dome.
Folding our secrets like white paper swans,
we kissed them with wax and we locked them in jars.
The trees were our fortress. The sky was our home.
Our ink splattered fingers carved hearts in the stone.
We fashioned red kites 'round the waist of our wrists.
They left for us tails through the rings of cream mist.
We laughed and we danced through the stuttering breeze
In sea ships of cardboard and crowns laced with leaves.
We'd wake up each morning to symphonic quails.
And under the stars we dreamed silver sails.
SurviveWhispers in my earSurvive3 years ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
Compel me to surrender.
But I will not hear;
I defy my contender.
Defeat is not an option;
There is no other way:
Survive against all odds
To die another day.
'Tis the oldest battlecry;
The only ultimatum.
Fight until you die
Rather plain verbatim.
To be classified as "alive,"
Survive, survive, survive.
