An Angel on this Field of Ice,
I hesitantly step on this,
Field of Ice.
This surface of ice,
It is but the most slippery,
Field of ice.
I try moving slowly,
On this surface of ice,
But my Crooked skates,
Knock me off balance.
As I start to fall,
For the very first time,
I accept help,
And In no time,
A hand catches me within the fall,
She catches me from my misery,
And helps me escape the pain,
Field Of Ice.
With the sweetest voice,
Asks me,"Are you OK?",
Even though I seem afraid,
I nod aimlessly,
While I reach for her fragile hand,
I grab he
End RemembranceEnd Remembrance6 months ago in Historical More Like This
Remembrance Day originates at the end of World War I. The idea is to honor those who died in the line of duty, defending their country from enemies. For all its pompous words and fancy granite memorials littered with colorful flower bouquets, Remembrance Day and others like it have failed miserably in achieving this goal.
I've often been criticized as having no respect, and that can be an impediment when discussing certain topics. However, I am often in luck – hypocrisy deserves no respect. What changed as a result of the enormous sacrifice of those who died in WW1? As the first bombs of WW2 fell just two decades later, millions once a

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

Lost in the wine of omni-dreaming, for our passion tis but

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

Iridescent flickers of color
Float carelessly throughout the air
Resurfacing the wanders of the unknown
While exposing the passions within
The flames of the heathen blaze
Burst forth in sentimental dance
Exploding the tendencies of lacking thus
The infliction no longer dispersed
How I long of that fire
That flare of confession
Which leads and forgives and disappears
While leaving behind charred souls
My heart is made of coal
No longer of the nightly failings
But rather of the sky light sparks
That disappears behind rusted remarks
The spirits of the flourish
Tend to all my worthless cares
They bring up to the feelings of t

Maybe when we are older,
It will mean
Something much, much more
To you and to me
And it will last
Through not the many days, weeks and months, but years.
The day I met you
I can hardly remember it
But I knew
I knew from the moment I saw you:
I would remember you
And become fond of you
Even for a while
I didnt know you very well
And even now
You are still a mystery to me
Ive seen you so often now
Ive talked to you so often now
Its like a dream come true
I never would have guessed
That I would be so involved
With someone like you
At times I would miss y

Every second of every minute of every hour of everyday day has led to this point in time. The pathways before us are infinite, the outcome of every pathway unique upon itself. If the determination of the next one to take is based on the predilection of a prior outcome, then all your hopes and dreams will be sacrificed for the sake of your fears. If the choice is based upon your hopes and dreams then the outcome will be an intrinsic manifestation of courage, and bravery begets the empowerment of your soul and with it the fruition of the pathways before you…

A Poem of my Yesterday's Dream...Yesterday's MirrorA Poem of my Yesterday's Dream...9 months ago in Visual & Found Poetry More Like This
I find it hard to look in the mirror,
seeing yesterday through my eyes,
remembering and always wondering if it was the right embrace.
I take short glimpses into the mirror,
to find something fresh yet I do not,
I see the sorrow, I see the tears. I don't know who's looking back.
I see a small crack in the mirror,
I want to look but I am unsure,
if it actually is the mirror or if its once more a broken me.
She is who I dont want to be,
she is crestfallen, scared, she is lost.
I keep looking and I keep searching,
just standing staring at this girl.
Pleading with her for forgiveness,
for closure and for peace
Twiggy's Turn Wanting. A Winter SongTwiggy's Turn2 years ago in Emotional More Like This
There is no time wasted in watching the stars go by...do you do it?
Do you not long to be out there?
I want to stride from star to star, naked and free in the moonlight and declare ownership of the world in which I dare to dream.
Let comets follow my footsteps like phosphorescent trails obeying my feet.
I want to be sucked into a wave and fly through foam in an underwater world.
I want sand in my hair and seaweed winding gently on my skin.
Just once I dare you...stand skin to skin with me.
Inhale my breath and burn with my heat.
Stay eye to eye....and die

The branches reflect off the sky
Like a soft layer of reverie
Refreshing, revitalizing, a new rain nears
And the clouds are no longer gray
Distant memories become purified
Making the reality almost too surreal
All shimmers of the bitter past
Oh, how I wish such things would last
Wandering through the core
Seeing a existence that I haven't known before
The true identity of myself
Mirroring back into my orbs
Thoughts twist around and around
A nearing truth never to be found
Oh, how I wish that I could comprehend
And see at last beyond the winding branches again
For it shimmers a brilliant light for a moment
Into the dear

Der starke Wolf
denkt an seine Wölfin,
die fort ist, in weiter Ferne
Ach, was ist er traurig!
Wäre bei ihr, so gerne..
Und weiterhin wird sie warten,
und blickt sehnsüchtig in den Garten
In dem einst das Wolfstier stand,
mit dem sie sich im Innersten
auf Ewigkeit verband.
Und sie trägt ihr Sehnen hinaus in die Welt
bis der Wolf sich wieder zu ihr gesellt.
Doch bald hat das Warten ein Ende
Sein Leben nimmt nun eine Wende,
wenn er dem Ruf seiner Partnerin folgt
Und er mit Stolz an ihrer Seite steht
Sodass sein Sehnen, sein Leid, vergeht
Doch mein lieber Wolf
Sei darauf bedacht:

A Light In The Fog
I don't know where I'm going
There is no use to keep on trying
The long nights remain dark, but the short days seem darker
The sun attempts to rise, but even the moon's faint glow is brighter
I guess I'm just searching for something to maybe give me a sense hope
Though I might just be another typical fool who has been lost a long time ago
There are no answers

Tell me Why,
Why must things be this way,
You were the only person,
The only person who I could,
Truly open up to,
Now I am hesitating,
Just not sure why,
Unable to make eye contact with you lately,
Unable to speak to you clearly,
Unable to act cheerfully,
As I always have been around you.
Why must things be this way,
I may have no one else,
That I can open my mind to,
I may have no once else,
That can comprehend my thoughts,
I may have no one else,
That may be able to tell,
That I am not being, my usual self,
Why must I feel this way,
When clearly I am not sure why.

You know how somethings just happen so suddenly, like you never would have guessed it would occur? Well, this story fits that just perfectly then. Even though I wasn't alive yet when my aunt had died, I have heard many memories and stories, before and after the accident. But, I have come to learn, even at an early age, to cherish those now, before they are gone.
My Aunt Lisa died suddenly in a car accident, on the morning of January 2nd, 1995. It was just after the celebration of the New Year. Snow had covered the ground, emitting a beautiful glo

Let the waters pour over the past.
Let the fires burn our passions for the future.
Let us be true to ourselves today, for good.
It is our hearts that guide us into our dreams.
It's the light of others love that lifts us from our troubles.
So to deny either one will send you down a darken path.
Those who know who you are, look for your inspiration.
Those, whom have yet to see themselves, look in the eyes of your friends.
For in those eyes lies your true self.
For those lost souls whom think there are no friends to be found,
You are mistaken.
They are the ones who care that hold a friendly kind of heart.
