I see her face when my eyes are closed
She lives in my heart and I in hers
My dark-haired beauty, my soulmate
A lifetime of love; given, accepted
Cherished beyond measure
A love so deep it creates its own space
Where none other dare intrude
A love story for the ages
But some stories are never written
Never put to the pen
For others to marvel and sigh over
To shine through the future as beacons
Of the truth of love
She died before we met
These are the great love stories never written
Lives lived out in the sorrow of the soul
The Sore Of A Deaf PoemAnother crumpled sheet thrown on the floor,The Sore Of A Deaf Poem3 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
Another shout, a thud, because she can't get rid of the sore,
The deaf poem of her broken heart is maybe too degraded,
She's not able to write it down, her soul is jaded,
The phrases of her life are burning on the inside,
A description about the moment when her dreams died,
It's smashing her heart and her tired mind.
From nowhere she hears a sardonic voice,
"- You're not able to hear the words anymore, in fact you never really did,
You have shed some scraps on pages, lies your soul to feed with",
She covered her ears, closed her eyes,
To stop hearing the demonic voice she tries,
"- Shut up!" she yelled again like every day,
It's impossible to escape this abomination that came in her way.
Maybe this is an already lost fight,
A decommissioned road to the healing light,
Her pathetic flounder makes no sense,
She's laying on the floor holding a broken pen.
Torn by the fall from grace,
She will leave behind just a bloody trace,

I wanna dance, jump and sing
spend my whole time just dreaming
BECAUSE OF YOU!
I've got butterflies in my stomach,
and the sun in my heart
BECAUSE OF YOU!
I feel elated, joy drunken, pleased
Bubbling over with happiness anyway
BECAUSE OF YOU!
I wanna hug the whole world
kissing, caress lovingly, holding it in my arms
BECAUSE OF YOU!
Finally i can smile again,
feeling like doing thousand and one things
BECAUSE OF YOU!
I enjoy a new lease of life,
looking ahead, knowing everthing will get fine
BECAUSE OF YOU!
For the courage, the smiling,
the feeling like doing thousand things
the happiness, the fluttering butterflies,
the dancing, jumping and singing
I THANK YOU!
Beautiful ContradictionOne of my favorite places to beBeautiful Contradiction3 years ago in Songs & Lyrics More Like This
Is also my worst fear
All the life I see
Is shadowed by the death here
The waves call me
Begging me forward
Into the sea
Only to drag me downward
What a beautiful contradiction
It's hard to tell the difference
Between death and life
Day and night
Sinking to the bottom
It was you, not them
Beauty turns to scars
Can't erase these marks
Save me from what I've done
Save me from the monster I've become
Swallowed by the ocean
I'm calm, I'm calm
My heart is broken
This is how I move on
It's better this way
I'm out of the picture
No longer causing you pain
Thinking of you now
A tear rises to the surface
A Siren's CallA Siren's Call2 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
Visions of madness shimmer in silvery skies
Horizons of passion drown in timeless beauty
There is a voice so pure that can melt a Sun,
a fragrance so luring that can reap mortal breath
Once thou hath gazed into the eyes of a Siren,
love befalls in a kiss, upon whispers of death
An endless ocean swirls, ethereal waves bewail
the sound of her cry haunts eons of dreams
In the deepest abyss, my soul shall forever sail
For a thousand years, I drifted in her song
lost in restless fever of wanton seas
Gently I reached towards her long silvery hair;
embroidered in tempest of Love's odyssey
Tears of sapphire jewel oceans deep ...
luminous thoughts seeking the nectar of bliss
Among flesh and shadows, I crave evermore
Lips unveiled, blackness approaches
my destiny entombed by the Siren's lore
When the world turns forever still,
only the sound of her fleeting whispers remain,
like echoes of rain, suspended over the sea

And the ache of soul carried the torch of dreams into the sky
Upon scent of mortal thirst destiny whispered in myriad
rapture of folding tides..
Lo the mythic shore, where I — a phantasm of love bleeds
into the ether of velvet sky & ocean hymn...
Lost in the wine of omni-dreaming, for our passion tis but
the humble audience of eternity
In jeweled horizons the Goddess feasts; her gaze I cannot flee
I have crossed oceans of time & drank the song of worlds
My spirit forever slain in the beauty of her immortal sea

Secrets of the DjinnLo the winds howl "Never you roam the mist"Secrets of the Djinn2 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
Wander you far across lands, forest & desert sea
Or dream you deep in a cloudless sky ...
Yet a presence looms & beckons, spirits unseen
For they are the Djinn, silent and ever watching,
embalmed into seasons of mortal blood-flow
And beware, for I shalt not speak of this again,
lest darkness unto thy flesh they quest and sow
Eons adrift in smokeless fire did they slumber...
Befallen to Earth's domain, they undressed fate
The Djinn, ancient dwellers humans would fear
Betwixt worlds they linger, shimmering in fire
Thru parallel dimensions they reach, seducing
dreams and reality, life... You!
Peering eyes thru the veil of time and space;
shape shifters of any form, stalk and hunt
Thoughts & flesh canst not escape their magick
Besieged and shadowed, the human race
til they are sent back to whence they came
And death became a wanton treasure,
where Angels pillage & Demons lust in flame
"You should never have come human"

How can you tell?
You feel that?
A soft happiness coming from the depths of your heart.
Suddenly, a bullet hits.
Shattering glass hearts.
Everything bleeds away.
Now you have nothing.
No life. No hope.
You are alone.
A cold, dark presence forms where the love once was.

I am not there. I do not sleep.
I am a thousand winds that blow.
I am the softly fallen snow;
I am the gentle showers of rain.
I am the field of ripening grain.

Of beautiful birds in circling flight.
I am the starshine of the night.
I am in the flowers that bloom.
I am in a quiet room.
I am in the birds that sing.
I am in each lovely thing.
So do not stand at my grave and cry.
I am not there.

Chapter One - Ocean AvenueThe sun was setting on the horrid and demolished landscape, just another thought of the after math of that took place along with the battle that brought most creatures to sorrow that very same day. Many animals made their way around the deselent place, many bowing their heads and their realization of many loved ones gone and their home destroyed kicked into their futile minds. A few bird chirped happily here and there, singing their merry songs as they tried to make peace with the living and calm the dead into crossing over. It was all over, they only seemed to think, it was all finally over. The dismay, the hurt, the torture. Yes, it all seemed to be over. For the time being anyway.Chapter One - Ocean Avenue5 years ago in Introductions & Chapters More Like This

Down the ears that can hear me but still refuse to believe
It's possible to hear voices in your head, after all.
Here is my mouth, softly tracing beautiful poison onto
The mouth that said my name and then denied me in the same breath
The dead aren't supposed to walk, after all.
Here are my eyes, drilling black holes into your skull and
Bleaching all colour from eyes that are frantically telling you
I'm just a grief-induced hallucination.
Here are the scars in my arms, trace over them and feel the blood
That use to pump so warmly next to you as we lay together in the dark
But now lies cold and withdrawn.
Here are the marks that shouldn't have existed
The ones that took me away from you for such a short time
But you couldn't wait to cover me over.
Here is my love for you, bringing me back to you
Even as my throat tickles and I sense your terror in the beat
That throbs across your throat.
Here is an invitation to join me, so that we

And the dog's going ballistic at the phone that won't seem to shut up regardless of how much you ignore it
And staggering from your bedroom leaving a peacefully sleeping warmth behind you go to tell the phone what time it is
And the voice on the other end of the phone is scary in it's placid calm and suddenly you want to put the phone down
And the dog's going ballistic at the sound of the doorbell that won't stop ringing no matter how much you ignore it
And the blue lights outside the window slowly start to burn a human-shaped hole into all the photographs standing proud
And the policeman makes you a cup of tea from your own kettle with milk from your fridge and sugar from your tin and sits you down and tells you whether you want to hear it or not
And the world turns off the light in your life

With his location firmly fixed his mind , he started to run. Slowly at first, and then as his feet left the concrete of the road and met with the grass instead he lengthened his stride. He smiled inwardly as he spotted the hedge. There was a gate just to the left, fairly high, and he angled for that. His mind quickly made a few calculations, his step changed just slightly, and he lifted off. His foot planted solidly on the top slat and pushed him over, his momentum stopping him from pitching over. As he landed on the other side and kept running, he heard a foot connect with the gate and then feet landing heavily behind him. He didn't bother to look behind; he could outrun anyone here, there was no need to see who was trying to follow.
