Michael Jackson, Planet EarthPlanet Earth, my home, my place
A capricious anomaly in the sea of space
Planet Earth, are you just
Floating by, a cloud of dust
A minor globe, about to bust
A piece of metal bound to rust
A speck of matter in a mindless void
A lonely spaceship, a large asteroid
Cold as a rock without a hue
Held together with a bit of glue
Something tells me this isn't true
You are my sweetheart, soft and blue
Do you care, have you a part
In the deepest emotions of my own heart
Tender with breezes, caressing and whole
Alive with music, haunting my soul.
In my veins I've felt the mystery
Of corridors of time, books of history
Life songs of ages throbbing in my blood
Have danced the rhythm of the tide and flood
Your misty clouds, your electric storm
Were turbulent tempests in my own form
I've licked the salt, the bitter, the sweet
Of every encounter, of passion, of heat
Your riotous color, your fragrance, your taste
Have thrilled my senses beyond all haste
In your beauty I've known the how

Guard DogWhat happens when a guard dog fails?Guard Dog1 year ago in Free Verse More Like This
I'm sure they're scolded for for it.
But what about those of us who are human guard dogs?
We have no master to scold us upon out wrongdoings.
No owner to answer to when we fail.
But we do.
Life sits us down and tells us what we did wrong, what we could do better.
But we are not only told, we have to watch as well.
Life holds us by the scruff of our neck and forces us to witness as the one we protect is vulnerable or in pain.
But when Life scolds you, you fucking listen.
Life will never stop scolding you until you give up or do better.
But I won't give up.
I'll never give up.
I'm loyal to the end.
I'm a soldier.
And I won't give up on you.

I'd take my self control and give it to you
Give you my strength
Take your weakness
I want you to be strong
I want you to feel no pain
I want you to know how much I care
How much I want you to be okay
How much you scared me that night
How much sleep I lost crying for you
How much I would take it all away if I could
I'd be your guardian
I'd never let you down
And I'd never let you demons take control again...

I wish I would have known
I wish I could take your weakness
I wish I could keep you from falling
I wish I could take your scars away
I wish I could have protected you better
I wish I didn't feel so responsible
I wish I could tell you all this heartache:
Is for you
I shouldn't have to say anything,
You know me well enough
Read between the lines as you read this
As you read all this damned poetry
It's for you.

Is a demon
Each drop of blood that stains your skin,
Is them laughing at your weakness
Each tear you cry,
Is them calling their brothers
But each smile,
Is putting them in pain
Each time you laugh,
They hide in the shadows
Each time you talk to a friend,
They cry out in pain
Each time you see a friend,
One of them dies
And each time we tell you we love you,
They start to run away

I tried, and tried
I may as well be your body-guard
I may as well have failed...
I couldn't protect you
When you told me what you had done
Shock arched like lightning in my veins
I couldn't protect you
I vowed to guard you
Vowed to save you
Vowed to catch you when you fall
But I couldn't protect you...
Couldn't protect you at all.
