Ode To My Broken HeartUpon the light I see myself.Ode To My Broken Heart2 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
I see the past and who I was.
I see the future and what I want.
I see the present and I see myself.
Away from this life is another.
There is a place where I am safe and loved.
That life is alien and cold, too distant.
My flesh cracks and breaks open, revealing inside.
There is emptiness and a void where my heart should be.
There is nothing yet there is me, a paradox of flesh and lies.
My eyes open, a light shining through them.
The truth shines through and revelations abound.
I look and feel and walk and live and feel cold.
These hands, this body, a vessel empty inside.
No heart, no soul, just bleak eternity to be found.
Where is the star in the sea of night, my beacon bright?
It is nowhere and everywhere, for I wander and I wonder.
There is no hope for me, I am just another unloved.
There is no love left anymore, nothing and no one is real.
There is only darkness inside, just another poser.
I rage and scream and bleed and live and grow old and I will die.

My Dark HeartBleakness encompass me.My Dark Heart3 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
Black tears roll down my cheeks.
When will the pain stop?
When will the blood cease?
There is a hope.
I want no more of this light.
It hurts to the core.
I will embrace the night.
Darkness in my heart.
A beating of a different kind.
A savage beast.
It will be me.
A change. A mental wolf.
I am bitten. I will change.
The transformation happens.
I am and always will be darkness.
ReturnRazed is my past, a hollow mockery of a life.Return2 years ago in Concrete Poetry More Like This
Eased into a shell, a fight at the grasp of a knife.
Though now turned that the tables have, an old soul adieu.
Under the pressure of a thousand minds, a new life found true.
Reams of blood and bones and a soul reforged from the weight of love.
Now I am born again, a perception turned outside in, a mind I am deserving of.

Eat away at my self-confidence from within.
The voices set it in and they whisper sweet little lies.
Only I see that those voices are all mine, too much to bear.
Under the blackness and cover of night do these whispers come rolling in.
There is one stronger than all the others and hers fills my night, for she is my moon.

Easy as silence and graceful as the night
Amber grains of wheat beating to their own dream
Cease the tide of hatred and ignorance
Everything and everyone is uniqueness realized
ForbiddenFor within there lies the soul, a fragment of anotherForbidden2 years ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
Outer shell, the lies of the flesh, future denied
Remember the past, dreams and memories, 'tis but another
But this is the body I wear, I was the boy who cried and tried
I gave and loved and lived, it wasn't enough for the other
Dances and kisses and hugs were in abundance, they couldn't hide
Dried blood, tears and sweat, screams of pain and agony, rather
Exalted bliss is denied and there is almost no one that I can confide
Nay, I must obey my mind and bury her deep inside, her I must smother
TearsThe wet liquid flows from my eyes.Tears2 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
Even this late in my life I see a truth unseen before.
An angel of mercy shining her light into the darkness of my life.
Rest comes now and I give over my weary body and mind to the woman within.
Salty seas left behind, there is a brightness that beckons me into a future filled with endless love.

Lies the land of what's myth and true
Where thy dreams lived and future foretold
And where thou canst find the memories of old
Where time fails to keep record of every breath
The land everlasting, unaffected by death

Come back to me,
Bring me snow
And embrace of cold.
Of those lost,
And the triumph
Of life over death.
Come back to me,
Let me feel
Your icy kiss,
Freezing the hate
Out of my soul.
Bring me to life
Wake me up,
Make me become
One with the solstice.
Come back to me...

This is a poem
for lip gloss
and the pre-teen
who wears it
and the old woman
This is for
sparkle and stick.
For bodies like
For all the boys and girls
who would breath in
when the wick turned black.
Before their hair
turned grey with ash,
and their eyes fogged over
from the naked heat.
Before young love dies
and is buried in a shoebox,
with a little pile of rocks
to mark where it was.
This is for
the scared little boy
who spent all his time
While pretty girls
lay on autumn hills,
and even the crickets play
in major key.
With their noses
face down in the soil.
With their discarded jackets
on the grass, limp-
and making angels.

O'er on the field lit brightly by thine wandering moon.
Lupus howls, is heard twine thine world and ravages 'round.
Fools rush forward, ne'er seen only to be heard warily too soon.

The spirits of animalia that my spirit will nurture.
I pray for the wisdom and strength to survive and thrive,
From the family of all bears and ursidae.
I pray for the speed and grace to rise above it all,
From the family of all eagles, specifically accipitridae.
I pray for the agility of my body and spirit to come alive,
From the family of all cats and felidae.
I pray to squeak through life unseen by those that aren't hip to my jive,
From of all mice, rats and family muridae.
I pray to the spirits of those that are loyal and true,
From the family of all dogs, wolves and canidae.
I pray to the spirits of those that look and listen for all dangers a brew,
From the family of all hares, rabbits and leporidae.
I pray to the spirits of those envenomed and scaled, slithering through,
From the family of all snakes and varanoidea.

Love Always Finds A WayI love you so true, I always have done,Love Always Finds A Way3 years ago in Concrete Poetry More Like This
For years I kept this secret, but the results, I had none.
I look in your eyes, I want them to look at me,
But it seems that I am the only thing, you could not see.
I waited for you to put your arms,
Around my neck, holding palm against palm.
And now I see you with a girl, another,
My dream is gone, but only a flutter.
I will hold my dreams strong, they will not float away,
As my mother once said, love always finds a way.

Tear stained eyes on a lifeless pillow.
Gentle kisses on a dark summer's night.
These thoughts are hard to hide.
The dreams I had in mind.
Why's it everyone's turn, but mine?
