Every Journey Has An EndingIf I would have nine lives,Every Journey Has An Ending1 year ago in Free Verse More Like This
maybe in one of them,
I would smile to a star called Desire,
which appears from time to time on the sky of an unknown planet,
to make life brighter.
With eight lives, I would think I'm so rich,
that I would be able to find that wonderful legendary golden dragon
and with generosity,
maybe he would protect me from emptiness.
With seven lives,
I would be so proud by my beauty,
that maybe I would forget
that you can not live so long without having a doubt.
With six lives,
I would turn the ashes of the Universe in diamonds
and maybe all known or unknown eyes,
would see the light.
With five lives,
maybe I would discover from where springing the rainbow
and I would catch roots
in an certain Tomorrow.
With four lives,
maybe I would be very selfish
and I would believe that my heart can sing
and that song could stop time passing.
With three lives,
I would dream that my insanity was cured
I would be able to learn to love.
With two lives,
I would start to app

Death but a WishDeath is but a wish awayDeath but a Wish1 year ago in Free Verse More Like This
Rest eternal calling
So young to suffer so
Babes still need their mum
Wasting into bones and withered flesh
The Lord calls you to slumber
To dream eternally
Go in peace my love
Death is but a wish away
Rest eternal calling

I immerse myself in universal yet human sounds
sounds of trumpet horns, thumping drums
the guitars rich stringing, and the synthesizers/samplers
alien sounds and voices. the euphoric melody surrounds my body and soul,
enveloping me. I feel stronger than ever. I have the power to feel sound
with my whole body, every inch, the ability to visualize elements with my hands,
to make my hands on fire without pain, and to flow with the music's energy.
My perception of sound is unique. I move onto the next song.

Stretched out on the couch
you start to purr
so soft and fluffy
is your fur
eyes so bright
a soft pale green
the coldest nose
I've ever seen.
The gait so gracious
full of stealth
a shiny coat
glowing with health.
for you an art
at catching mice
you are so smart.
you can be stubborn
who you're going to rub on.
you can do real good
and at meal times,
well it's understood
Only the best
for you we chose
you turn up your nose
but you know
how to bring us round
make us laugh
just fooling around.
We are here
to do your biddin`
we love you so
you're our little kitten.

Grand Pa bounced me on his knee,
his big moustache would tickle me.
He'd want a kiss, give me a peck
and blow a raspberry on my neck.
I'd squeal so loud, laugh with delight,
my arms around him, hug him tight.
While playing games of hide and seek,
he'd start to count but would always peek
and then pretend he couldn't see,
where I had hid. Where could I be?
My Grand pa could do magic,
he could make a penny disappear,
until he uttered "Sim-sala-bim!"
and there it was behind my ear.
Sometimes he'd take me to the zoo
and we'd have fun the whole day through,
we'd walk around for miles and miles
and he'd buy me little snacks.
Later when I could walk no more,
I'd be carried piggy-back.
Then came a time he had to leave,
it left my Mommy full of grief.
But "Gramps" I just wanted you to know,
you were definitely my hero.
My best friend,I miss you each day,
so good night, God bless
and as you would say,
friends it's time for me to go, so
fare-thee-well and cheerio!.
Silent AngerLonging to scream like a prophesying BansheeSilent Anger1 year ago in Free Verse More Like This
Stopping you in your tracks
Wanting to shout painful ire
Desiring to shake the world
Knocking you from your feet
A soul's death voicelessly foretold
By silenced and festering predecessors
United in frustrated agony
Pounding for release
Wanting to make my accusations
Testify to the truth
Release justified wrath
Instead the Banshee's cry
Joins the writhing mass
Silent anger, silent death

deep below, out of . . .r e a c h. . .
At times it seems safe that way,
no one knows,
no one speaks.
Of the pain in the shadows
something . . .b e a t s. . .
A long forgotten charm
a play on melody
a song, a sigh
a familiar chord...an echo,
A longing, a piercing so deep,
the soul (heart) ache of the tragic
soaring to its PEAK.
No ShoesFrom below I watchNo Shoes1 year ago in Free Verse More Like This
the feet passing my little window
Wondering where do they go
who do they love
why does she rush
what do they discuss
It is my only joy
as the roach runs across my bare toes
From my dungeon window
with my friend Roach
I am free in my fantasies
as I walk in their shoes

Really close so no one will hear
Each day that we have known each other
My heart has come closer to that of another
Come a bit closer and you shall see
Just how much he means to me
Look at how my hands do tremble
Surly it is a tell-tale symbol
Come a bit closer and hear the unknown
See how much my fondness has grown
Sometimes it is difficult to contain
I fear my secret will drive me insane
Come a bit closer and hear what I say
I come a bit closer to you everyday
Forgiveness SetYour ForgivenessForgiveness Set1 year ago in Concrete Poetry More Like This
Your forgiveness my soul amazes,
Tainted only by frequent traces,
Of fiery anger and of helpless fear,
Hurtful words matched with evil sneer.
Forgiveness held only in part,
Never from the whole of heart,
Killing our love and eroding trust,
Until it dies, dust to dust.
Left again and walked away,
While in devotion I did stay,
My heart eager to forgive your sin,
Wanting to begin yet again.
My every error made a crime,
Willingly I did my time,
Stumbling from weathered ledge,
You left me behind for dead.
Forgiveness must be without a catch,
Given without a "but" attached,
The hatchet buried six feet under,
Not swung to split our love asunder.
