Carry Me HomeI crawl through lingered expansionCarry Me Home10 months ago in Free Verse More Like This
Trying to reach the precipice
A sentence or two stops me
They are bland trees
The words are the dried out leaves
I brew expression but it needs more sugar
Doubt is an ocean in drought
There are no waves of thought to overlap me
I surrender to creation
And type letter by letter
Key by key
Trying to find me
But I am as lost as an imaginary friend
Invisible to the keen eyes of pretension
I am here waiting
Within these walls of words
Carry me along because I cannot walk alone
I need phrases to withstand me
Just a few words that will take me home
Imperfect PerfectionI cannot rush imperfectionImperfect Perfection1 year ago in Free Verse More Like This
It is a slow demise
Under the wilted skies
Gravity is not forthcoming
I fall until I cannot fall any more
I am suspended
In universal blunders
There are still wonders
That are hidden in catastrophes
And the almighty seas
Spoken like broken words
That never fail to amuse
I lose myself in the imperfections around me
The rose that bows her head
Laughter that is choked back
It does lack
The breath to expound
I am bound
By feathered wishes and gratitude
It is lewd
The way that the world works
There are some perks
The way that you say my name
Life is never a game
But there are still losers
You already know that love is a gamble
I have preamble
And knowledge is on my side
It is a fun ride
Take me with you
We will make a flesh stew
Our bodies slowly simmering
With the heat that leaves us burning
Until all that is left are intermingled bones
Lips to lips
Hips to hips
We stumble onto this thing called love
And it is in the imp

The one I love.
About the Ray of light,
You travel with me to the abyss.
The cesspool of humanity, where dark souls reside,
You are there with your effervescence.
You never mince words.
They are birds with petal soft beaks,
You pillow beneath me.
You are there opening the door
Making sure there are no ghosts to follow.

If only you were my angel of life
Trying to connect the stars
In the constellations
Needing to see you there
Goodness would flow from your celestial self

he looks the sunset on dunes
she is in New York in their apartment
he is in a military base in Kaboul
the distance is her pain
his return is her hope
6 months already, that he is in this country
he looks at calendar
he counts down the days
in trying to stay alive
the videos messages are insufficient
he wants to kiss tenderly her lips
she wants to caress her face
and be carried away by desire

Touch me anyway
Like the world is ending
Let us have our say
Caress me with blushing lips that tell a story
It will be a beautiful goodbye
I am ready to die
I want to be your best memory
We have never met
But I would know you anywhere
My heart will tear
Into tiny bits of remembrance
I can feel you like you are right next to me
My handsome ghost
Haunting my mind, body, and soul
If only we had met sooner
When we were both aimless and free
And the path was easy
You would be here right beside me
My hands would not be tied
And you would not have to hide
Or what appears to be so
Because you cannot show
Me love in the open
We have to be careful
And tread lightly where we are not supposed to go
It is enough that I know
What your feelings are towards me
You should lead
So that I can follow
I want to be one step behind you
Because ignorance is served on a silver platter
In everything you say and do
I want to be a part of

Cold as a witches tit
Living and dying
Laughing and crying
Breathing and bleeding
Seeing not believing
And all that other crap!
Comes a way of life
Gets worn out
And turns away
It's all fucked up, dude
None can explain it
Doubts of nowadays
Distrust of tomorrow
Old wounds and memories
Happiness and sorrow
Ripples upon the sea
To be or not to be
And all that other crap!

Immeasurable strength charging against unshakeable faith,
Swimming in visions of your own creation,
Burning through the magma flowing violently
through the cracks in your soul.
Fractured sanctuary, sacred in defile,
A beacon of moonlight shines through oppressing void.
Snuffed out flames send signals of mercy to unwatching eyes
as waves break upon crumbling mountains.
Cracks in the road lead to new adventures,
The empty flask needs filling,
Punctured flesh heal over in smooth reprieve,
Open eyes see nothing but design.
The nonsense is forever understandable
to those with the will to accept it.
Poor Little GirlSweet Little GirlPoor Little Girl1 year ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
Don't say a word
Be careful what you say
And run away
There's a monster on your tail
Waiting for his kill
His stomach rumbles in the night
He's waiting for a bite
Scared Little Girl
It's time to hide
There's a labyrinth in the garden
Get out of his sight
He's following your scent
And tracking your trail
In no time at all
He has you in his sight
Poor Little Girl
You never had a chance
With a shrill little scream
You exhaled your last breath
Done with his meal
The monster stalked away
Lapping up blood
Still dripping from his fangs

the stars decay.
A shadow comes;
tempting a dark, distant macabre.
His voice, tis' delicate.
To me he sweetly whispered
a song that called me home.
And soon he faded
with I, persuaded
to dwell in darkness
and silence called me home.

Sight of fantasy and delight
High king of Ireland's court did 'tend
Celtic twilight this vision did lend.
Mists of time enclosed my form
Free to wander until the dawn
Looked and saw vision of Celtic gold
On grey hair, on one so old.
Wimples white on ladies heads
Delicate hands long since dead
Rustic oak and dogs that bark
Forest primeval very dark.
Horses grazing, running free
Palfrey for lady did I see?
Mysterious vison impression made
Tapastry woven finest brocade.
Letter to a TigerAmur Tiger, wild majesty,Letter to a Tiger10 months ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
Savage beast of the northern frost,
Dweller of Siberian ice,
Of woodlands blanketed with snow,
A hunter in the deepest of night,
My weakness is as clear to you
As the cold to a naked man.
There is no mask that I could wear
That would hide my face from your sight
Or shield my pain from your knowledge.
Each ounce of strength you display,
Whether in the midst of the hunt
Or defending your dominion,
Makes the sting of my helplessness
Ever more baneful to my heart.
As I watch your stripes vanish
Into the Siberian night
All that lingers in this cold place
Is the weakness yet to behealed
And the envy I feel for you.

In my frazzled mind
"Your love is shallow"
So I look behind
Maybe it was
Maybe I'm cheap
But at least once
I thought it was deep
It wasn't always my fault
That things would come to an end
More than once
It was the will of a -friend.
Then I look at my current
And ask if its real
It all seems to click
Though things aren't ideal
The distance kinda sucks
But she makes my heart light
My mind she fuels
My body ignites
So I'm here
Content with life
For the best things
Take a little strife
But she's worth it
A fact I well know
For with her
My heart's aglow

Hollow InsideSometimes I wish you be hereHollow Inside11 months ago in Songs & Lyrics More Like This
When I feel trapped inside
With no way out
And no way of screaming,
Sometimes I black out like this
And feel not worthy anymore
In this place without doubts.
Some days, it just happens
This black hollow inside of me
Making me forgetting
The taste of life
Forgetting everything around me
And look at it with no care
Sad but not
Shedding any tears.
Yet I wish I could express
That just appear when it feel like
Stressing me like no tomorrow
Without I even realize
That I just miss
The warms feeling outside.
I have no problems sitting here
But I wish you'll be near me
Hugging me when
I don't dare to ask
I have no troubles explaining
But I'm of your reaction
So hug me till I sleep
And don't to talk...
Asleep in yours arms
My worries seem to disappear
Even though they are still here
I can finally forget them for now,
Escaping this sadness without limit`
Even though I can't cry
I can feel the tears at the borders of my eyes
And for now a sig

pair of eyes bleeding a river.
Lips trembling ever so slightly,
fingers beginning to quiver.
My head bobs, sharp gasps as
the water drowns me, slow.
Memories swimming in my mind,
Of people I love, people I know.
All that lies ahead is:
Blank and empty, and blank.
My life - parallel,
to the titanic that sank.

Flood of Hope~ Nothing quite comparesFlood of Hope10 months ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
to the beauty of the rain
that crowns me in hope
and carries me away
into another world
where I feel so free
from this broken land
and haunted jubilees.
In the dreary night,
I can hear them sing
of the trifling rain
that this nature brings
and it makes me mad
knowing that they rebuke
this lovely thing called rain
that serves as my refuge.
Under it's healing touch,
my soul is at eternal ease.
Scars of shame disappear
like black holes in the galaxy.
Since my darkness fell
to the power of the rain,
everything is brighter within
and I've never been the same. ~
The Train On The TracksThe wind is a hollow song,The Train On The Tracks2 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
Despair dances through the air;
Staring down the tracks,
I've lost all proper flair.
The timing is flawless,
Still, I can't be sure;
The train roars like thunder,
As it skids across the moor.
Feet are planted roots,
As the distance turns to lights;
Eyes widden and blood pulses,
Huge pupils around whites.
Its only a temporary tingle,
Where one would expect pain;
I'm met with a warm darkness,
But there is no moon to wane.
Won't you miss the trees,
And sky and breath? They said;
Don't you know what you're doing?
It won't all be in your head.
But as I watched that train approach,
My hope and heart wouldn't bend;
It only matter what I thought of myself,
Surrender was not the end.
Still the One InsideShe turned around and walked away,Still the One Inside2 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
That moment still haunts me today.
I'm waiting for her to come back,
But I don't know if she'll do that
Walking away was not her choice,
If it was I would raise my voice.
Something is being planned for me
On this road, twisting endlessly.
I try to follow my own path,
Sometimes it gives me a good laugh;
But there are times when it brings pain,
Falling down on me like rain.
I'm always given an escape,
Fighting for it keeps me in shape
Even if I give up and shout,
It's the one thing I'm not without.
Longing for what's left behind,
Are the things that won't leave my mind.
I try to numb the pain it gives,
Making it part of how I live;
Still, no matter how hard I try,
I told you I would never lie:
This truth is one that's hard to hide,
You are still my one girl inside.
