Suddenly, my attention is diverted by a flock of birds flying right over..."that doesn't happen too often" I thought, sometimes, I even forget that birds still existed where I live, I sit legs crossed watching the flock disappear in the horizon (or just behind the block facing m
DreamboxA heart in a boxDreambox7 years ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
A box in a shell
Riding on rainbows
Made up of bells
In a cathedral
A sleeping girl lay
Sweet lovely innocence
In a world full of hate
Found in a store
Made of burnished gold
Spinning on axis
The new become old
Inside a globe
That constantly snowed
On top of a mantle
The gift proudly showed
She skated on rainbows
And swam in its sea
I saw her reflection
But never could reach
Her heart in a box
The box in a shell
Riding on rainbows
Made up of bells

"Mom, how many more places are we gonna look at? I'm starving."
Artemis Lawson trails behind her mother, her dark brown ponytail swishing as she walks. Velair Shepard looks over her shoulder at Artemis, "What's the matter Ari? Don't you think this is just like the coolest thing? I mean your mom is helping us pick out the perfect apartment."
"I know, but I'm just bored right now. I'd rather be home, practicing for my performance this weekend."
Miranda stops in her tracks, turning to face her daughter, "Honestly Artemis, couldn't you be a little more excited about this? Your Aunt Oriana worked all night to find you these places."
Artemis lowers her head, avoiding her mother's gaze. Miranda lifts her daughter's chin with one hand, looking into her eyes with motherly concern. "What's the matter sweetie? This isn't like you."

Blame It On My PimpBlame It On My PimpBlame It On My Pimp6 years ago in Urban & Spoken Word More Like This
(A narrative poem about why I went on a diet)</b>
In my refrigerator lives a little
who eats away
at my sugary foods,
whenever I am not looking.
He is pink and wears
loosely cut robes made from the
cellophane wrapping that he has
pilfered off of the bowls in which I keep my leftovers.
I know he is pink because the cellophane is see-through.
He must only wear it to keep warm
because I can see his bits and pieces
I call him the Pink Imp
(Pimp for short).
Pimp sleeps in the cold,
of my vegetable bin
because he cannot fit anywhere else,
because everywhere else is stuffed
with mountainous chocolate cake
and lumpy discs of chocolate chip cookies
and barrels of chocolate pudding
and vats of lard
and oceans of full cream milk
Old Stuff: OneirologyOnce I wished to be a birdOld Stuff: Oneirology6 years ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
If only just to fly
A life apart, a life away
A whole world to deny
However, now I'd be a bird
To see the world arrayed
To know the truth, to feel the wind,
To watch time's slow parade
The auguries inherent
When observing such a view
I long to see, and long to be
And flight I thus pursue.

I waited outside for the rain
and it came but it found
my ground only too late and shook its coat anyway
and it all feels Ecclesiastes
I believed in you
and I believe in you still
I won't move, I'll wait on my reliable
I'll rest in my Koheleth until I die
And when some look within
It weighs them down
It takes them down to the ground
and lower still, but here I know
and I always will
I waited for you even when you were here
reached after you when you passed by
Only you know
Only you can make it feel like life
because here I know
This is the only place in all the world
where I can see heaven
That is, until I'm there
Until I'm there
keeps boiling me away
Even the soul lies while the spirit keeps fast
The stars make the night my friend
and I'll rest in my Koheleth until I die
The She Addiction.I forget what addiction is likeThe She Addiction.6 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
As I sit,
Pushing the thought of a cigarette from my cleared mind.
I forget what addiction is like
Until she finds her way back into my head,
When nothing else can break in...
She's slowly becoming my niccotine,
Another dangerously exciting addiction to mark on the wall.
Distance drives me just a little insane,
As I consider hopping a train
To blow her away
Or at least try.
Two hours isn't long enough
Not far enough
To keep me away.
Nothing can keep me from her,
My born-again niccotine,
She's the something tugging at my last breath---
---caught in my throat----
She's my addiction,
And I'm coughing hard,
With a grin that reaches
All the way up to my eyes.

Every line around her eyes
is the mark of
how often she has smiled
the deep crease in between
is the heartaches
through life she has seen
all are scars
that life left her behind
never to be erased
vivid memories of the mind
she has only a few pictures
printed on paper
though that was her gift
to see beauty within lives superficial hatred
Many times opportunity
knocked on her door
along time ago she locked it
for love & life merely
laid her out on the floor
that way she can blame herself
nobody else's fault anymore
Puts heartfelt words
down on paper
hoping the wind
will write the score
always hears the birds
singing in tune
living off the seeds meant to
make her life bloom

Of Devils and Angels.
She was somewhat of a dark angel; but an angel all the same. So the only thought that ran through my mind was "How did I wind up with this beautifully dark angel... let alone any angel at all?"
After all, I was nothing but some devil spawn with faulty hopes and bridges collapsing all around my silently shaking form--- and she looks on with teary eyes, using her shadowy and mysterious angellic powers to halt time, pain, and all the other impossibilities in this realm in which we reside.
My glistening dark eyes show a morsel of the thanks I feel for her unexplained courage... but something tells me that she needs my devilish help as much as I need hers. She may not face it, but she knows deep down inside that she wants and needs it--- like a lost and faded love for a run-away pet.
Nothing more than a shadowy demon perched atop a rusted weathervane, with a pair of mischieviously glistening eyes and

To feel like I'm leading their way,
Hey, please ask me to stay,
'cause I can't stop dreaming of you.
And I want to tell you
Just how it feels when you open your eyes in her arms.
And I want to tell you
Just how I'd say
That without you, my sheets aren't quite warm.
Don't be allergic to this simple touch,
I know it's not much,
But who knows what they'd have to say, hey,
As you sit there below,
Contented to blow your silver smoke wreathes around me.
I know that it's clear that I have lost my mind,
But good things take time
And I'm trying to regain my stance,
No, don't ask me to dance
'Cause you know that it's just not my thing.
I'll send up a kite and hope that it won't fall,
I'll give it my all.
You know that I can't be your Clark Kent,
No, I'm broken and bent

floods your eyelashes,
makes your hair fly
and makes your eyes shine more than the sea.
Your voice is like the singing of the mermaids
and your footsteps the road to eternity.
To have you close
the only condition is to breathe.
Think of you is like the garden of Eden
to chafe your skin is the door to glory
one glance of you,
Memories tie us up to our past,
as sweet as the old wine,
that makes us remember,
fortune days that were not much.
My feet feel the speck of sand,
my heart feels yours when crackling.
There wont be any fallen leaves in winter,
which your bonfire will not use.
Ask for anything and you will have it,
ask for eternal life and you will hate it,
ask for a second of love,
and with me, it will be enough.

Early that Sunday
Fell through the sky and down
Into my eyes
I had a vision
I wasn't in it
But I was in it
As it fell down on me
And forty people
Four thousand people
Four million people
Had it come down on them
And we were swept away
And we were carried forth
Our lives forgotten
Our homes remembered
I had a dream
Early that Sunday
Rose through the sky and up

more like a freak
for a while it didn't matter
My spirit was strong & sweet
would rather climb a tree
run through the woods
jump in the creek
Very wild from the start
Born with a rebellious streak
with wisdom beyond my years
seeing the breeding of lies of hate
So I played in the forest
though told not to go
We all have free will
Don't have to do as we're told
I always found peace
in my secret spot
trusting in natural law
not the Kind that can be bought
Trying to understand the pain
from my 12 teeth broken off
underneath the gum
Why the dentist sent me home
without pulling the shells of teeth
to watch mama take some pills
curl up and go to sleep.

Built in our minds by social cause

Our survival's at stake
Fight for The Way
which is totally opposite of what
the government will say
They will soon seperate us
but not by race or sex
instead by social status
the amount of tax we pay
Oppressing and erasing
those in finacial need
for total control
all in the name of greed
They are laying down toll roads
making us pay to drive to work
while most can't afford Bush's gas as it is
living below poverty level
forced to sell out or quit
I say it's time
to cut through the shit
Start a revolution Make the rich our bitch
throw a slave tag on a white collar neck
could they survive without
those credit cards and checks

Where i've been told I hold the key to pure gold.
I could chase butterflies to the end of my life.
I could fly with the faeries & live to be merry.
I would dance around with cute little elfs,
And when I'm done stack them on the shelf.
I would ride the backs of purple & pink ponies,
Then for dinner, fry up tasty Peonies.
I would hear my mothers calls but never respond.
I secretly told her I wouldn't be long.
Frosty giants, stepping out from caves.
They shake my hand, knowing I'm Brave.
I would remember never to go west.
I know I would be A orcs hated house guest.
As I look to the distance I see a very dark castle.
I try to run away, In much of A hassle.
The orcs come out to play,
The frosty giants slip away.
My mothers voice is lost in a panic,
I yell and scream for her in frantic.
The peonies sour in my mouth,
The ponies run to the south.
The shelf breaks letting every memory fall,
The elfs have never looked so fierce & tall.

The Chaining of the OakThe sharp breeze of a cold autumn night echoed down the extended corridor, sending tapestries and drapes all a flutter against the cold, dusty walls upon which they had been fixed, as the Earl stood completely grief stricken and most awfully wretched, within the towering open doorway to his rich and grand estate home. Beyond the grated threshold, the ominous shadows of the mysterious night, cast by the partially shrouded moon, gambolled shiftily upon the open grounds of the vast surrounding gardens. The looming shapes of the trees beyond swung in unison, dark figures against a star filled sky.The Chaining of the Oak7 years ago in Spiritual & Occult More Like This
As the Earl stood with the appalling news of the previous hours still fresh in his mind, his thoughts ran wild with such uncertainties and a recollection of dismissed fears. It seemed that he stood for an eternity, as silent as the grave, and with a pallor to match; as still as the stone effigies of his ancestors that surrounded him in that dimly lit place. Lost to his thoughts, the Earl se

HeartWhat does H.E.A.R.T really mean?Heart4 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
I may have found the answer.
But everyone's meaning is different,
so here is mine.
The H is for How much I love you. Words connot describe what I feel when you are around me. Nothing can bring me down if I have you to lift me up again.
The E is for the Excitment I have. The excitment that comes from having a great time, even if it is at some rip off festival.
The A is for All the good time's we've had. The moments that will hold a special meaning within... The moments we'll always remember, or forget.
The R is for the Rhythm of our hearts. The pulse that speeds up whenever I am with you. Together, we make perfect harmony...
The T is for the Time we will have together, hopefully forever. The good and the bad ones, even if it tries us to the point of breaking. I know we will always pull through.
No matter what happens, I'll be there fore you.
Forever and always, Sincere and true.
I love you.
