Rain and MeRain and Me2 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
I tell people I hate rain
It isn't true
We have a love-hate relationship
Me, and liquid precipitation
Sometimes, it's good
Other times, bad
Sometimes, it's just there
I love the great, sweeping curtains
Silvery rain, over the hills
Or the naturalness of it
Amongst the concrete and glass
Fine rain, like the breath
Of a god of vapour
That hangs in the atmosphere
too light to fall
I like it too, when it beads on your hair
Water-diamonds, that's what I call it.
The lashing sting of rain,
When, with a keen sense
Of the dramatically appropriate
There's a storm at sea.
Storms, I love those.
The rolls of thunder,
The power of lightning
Those moments, when
In the flash of burning ozone
The world looks paused
Light and black
I hate rain when it's dull
Like the ditchwater it feeds
Grey rivulets on brick
Turning the earth to mush
Running down your neck
On the way to the train station
But after a storm, in the heat
Of high summer
That's when me and rain
Are best friends

Once Upon A Time Of SplendourOnce upon a time of splendourOnce Upon A Time Of Splendour2 years ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
Stood a princess by the shore
Fairer than the stars that sparkle
In the dark of heaven's vault
Wiser than the knowing planets
Pure her soul, without a fault
Bright her beauty like a beacon
Clear and clean and brilliant white
Hair like shadows
Skin like milk
And her eyes of shifting hue
Yet her raiment not of silk
Nor of some yet richer thread
But black as night
And soft as light
The better for her heart to grieve
Wielder of the swords of darkness
Bringer of the perfect light
Pearls of wisdom on her hair
Shadow princess, shining one
Both shield and blade
And bitter joy
She stands upon the ocean's edge
Immortal queen of elven lands
Twin the swords upon her back
Both starfrost and shadowfire
Summer in Winter, storm in calm
Gentle, fierce and beautiful
Walker of the finest thread
Between the light and blackest dread
Faster than the light that speeds
As a comet in the sky
Stronger than a granite anchor
And her heart as soft as snow
Closer than your very breath

in all its joys
So why must you rip it apart?
Put up your claws,
stop tearing at sin,
let everyone breathe
for the first time.
This life will never
Let go, breathe,
let the pain make
There is peace in
lightness and dark.
In love and death,
we all live forever.
Please don't tear
this faith apart.
Dark GardenShe is an outsider.Dark Garden4 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
A black rose among red.
Though she stands tall,
the thorns of others still hurt.
Forcing her to wilt,
so that they may bloom.
Is she so different?
By color of petal,
or size of stem.
Is she not beautiful?
Do all eyes see as they?
Forsaking the dark beauty
that is she.
But black appeared among red,
again and again.
Surrounding her in darkness.
She stands tall once more.
In her beloved black rose garden,
among the field of red.
Sonnet : AtonementThy smile, in light of my heart divine seemsSonnet : Atonement4 years ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
Immaculate, in their prime none could match,
Betwixt darkest nights like sunshine did gleam,
Absent, in daylight broad does darkness hatch,
Forlorn, now I, of thy touch reminisce,
Of how it stole misfortunes and tears,
Now I in dreams try to recall that bliss,
For awake, unites me with my fears,
When to deceit and falsehoods i fell prey,
Or when kinsmen drew daggers to my back,
As oft as they wronged, thou undid their fray,
I, of thee devoid that redressal lack,
Oh love! Thou being replete in atoning,
In advent give hope, in descent, mourning.

I'm calling for the second time.
I know you're home,
And I know you can hear,
The thoughts running through my head,
And the drop of every tear.
As the clock struck midnight,
I was beginning to loose the fight,
And I left you a message,
And this is what it read:
There's been to many tears I've shed,
And I'm giving up on you.
You're never been there to catch me,
So baby, we're through.
I remember my mind is sturdy,
Even if my heart is weak.
I try not to care about you,
Even if everything I say is untrue.
The clock called 1a.m. with a loud clang,
And the door bell rang.
I opened the door,
And you stood on the top step,
And you said, "When you wept,
You were always so beautiful, I didn't know what to say.
I never caught you,
Because you were so stunning I couldn't move.
I wish there was someway I could prove,
My love to you.
You got down on one knee,
And opened a small black box,
Meant just for me.
8 o'clock at night,
And I'm dressed all in white.
I stare into your eyes,

Summer LoveThe warm sticky air,Summer Love4 years ago in Urban & Spoken Word More Like This
The slight breeze,
The refreshment, and the laughter,
The lovers all cooing.
Its summer, that magical time,
When boy meets girl,
Where they fall in love, and think it will last forever,
But it wont.
Theyll spend all their time together laughing, joking, romancing,
Theyll tell each other how true their love really is,
Theyll love, and love till their hearts feel like bursting,
Theyll dread the day summer ends for good.
Fall sets in,
Boy and Girl drift apart,
Between school, friends, and other activities, they leave each other in a haze,
Boy calls Girl.
Girls never home,
Girl calls Boy back, there is silence on the phone,
When did it get all weird?
What happened to their fairy tale romance?
What happened to their dreams of being together?
What happened to their promise of being together forever?
What terrible forces make summer love disappear?

There's a song up in my head.
A triumph of beats
that is scrambling my movement.
I'm betting on the muse
as I learn to sell myself
without selling my soul.
I want to be
where the wind is chocolate.
When you manage to find words
I get lost between the letters.
You are the Coney Island of my mind.
The circus of my soul.
But I'm spending a season in hell
because nicotine makes me charming.
The body itself,
should be wonder enough,
but I can't give you up to the world.
Sometimes I wake up late
so I'll be closer
to the end of the day.
You seem so blank sometimes,
I don't want to pin your shadow
to my wall.
You would seem to prefer to choke
than breathe tainted air.
I'd like to slow everything down
to the point of silence,
but I'm afraid of being posessed
by the music itself.
The blues are slow

I don't think words can ever be enough
But words are all we've got
Yes, life is cruel, for everyone
But I beg you, please forget me not
For I need no more to be happy
Than to know someone cares
And life is always brighter
Every time you are smiling
Time becomes a light feather
That only we can see flying
For I need no more to live
Than a whisper from an angel
No one can realise how I need you
I think this world is blind
Thank you for bringing me out of the darkness
The light, that without you I couldn't find
For I need no more to hang on
Than your hand holding mine
I'm here, next to you, I swear
I hope you can feel me
This timeless moment we can share
This spaceless place where we meet
For I need no more to believe
Than to look in your eyes
Twenty-five hundred dimensions away
There is still hope inside
Space can't stop emotions
When the hearts are sealed
For I need no more to love
Than to know you are real
Another attemptWeak words are all that I can find. No inspiration, nothing has arrived in such a long time. Remembrance will not provide. All that is left is a bland disgrace. I mourn you, my lost muse. I wish that you would just come back. In a repetitive motion I try and force out a poem, all I get is a tiny rhyme. Perhaps this is to prove how unimportant I am. My mind cant even fill a paragraph. Another waste of paper. Another scrap for DA. This is all I have left to show. My creativity has died.Another attempt6 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
Disapointment and despairThe disappointment, the despair. How can this be? And I never thought it would happen like this. You left without a word. Gone by daybreak, they couldn't bring you back. And I blame them, and myself. They should have saved you, isn't that their job? And I can't remember, it's so long ago; I don't think I even told you I loved you that night. They gave us some excuse, "He was dying before we got to him." A lie to make them feel better. Seven years of your absence. Seven years that hurt me so. I have no father. I have no mother or sister. I am an orphan due to certain circumstances. I live in your memory. Living as I think you would. And I have made some bad choices, and I have cried for you to come and save me. I am weak. I am a failure. I am a little girl missing her daddy.Disapointment and despair8 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
Living LifeMy past shadowed,Living Life4 years ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
My future bright.
If I focus on now,
Everything will be alright.
Live in the moment,
Don't let it pass you by.
If life gives you lemons,
Don't sit and wonder why.
Dance on that train,
Sleep on those railroad tracks.
Sing in the rain,
And just relax.
Live life to the fullest,
Don't dwell on the facts.
Run if you want,
And don't ever look back.
Don't you want to know,
You lived life, and didn't waste it?
Say you street raced,
Even just for a little bit.
Ignore the rules,
Do whatever you want.
Buy a Porsche,
And take a road trip to Vermont.
Make an impact on the world,
No matter how small.
Even if you try and fall,
Your memory will forever stand tall.

You, yourself are a supernova among dull stars
because of that personality that compels
maybe this night will be in the palm of your hands

All I can do is just stare at them
I can't get up because I am glued to this bed
I can't get rid of all these tubes.
Mom and Dad are pacing around the room, aruging
They have been aruging since I was seven
Dad finally split when I was nine
Now since I am sick they are forced to deal with each other
Adding on to the list of things that are my fault.
I can't say a word, I can't remember the last sentence I uttered
I wish it had been look at me!
Because all they do is look at each other
I see all the pain in their eyes
I see that they used to be so in love
But now they are obssesed with making the other fall apart.
I wish they could just care about me
I thought they loved me
But I am just fading
Into the wall with the squiggly lines.
Sonnet : Turn of fateWhat may endless voids of thy love fill?Sonnet : Turn of fate4 years ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
No feeling nor mortal is befitting,
Anguish and agony that thou didst kill,
Now rule in my mind without submitting,
Those doves that once in frolic had twittered,
On dying love now scavenge like vultures,
The refuge once that your image catered,
Incarcerates my soul in sepulchres,
Words no more give warmth nor convey meaning,
In feeble fading feelings finding faith,
Beliefs concrete once, now fall careening,
The miracle of love, now ghastly wraith,
Such turn of fate accompanied you leave,
Thy memories oint while thy actions grieve...

In deathly denial all turns into ice,
None stood upto thine empire not to fall,
Art thou Devil's need or an Angel's vice?
Thou in others demerits make me see,
While thine own art profuse, thou maketh scarce,
My seeing eyes to thee sworn betray me,
All truth its treachery turns into farce,
What king of he, who thine alliance lost,
His slaves thou smiled upon do him exceed,
For treasures haven't might to thee accost,
Nor any realms coin shalt fulfil love's need,
Oh Love! To thy craft thou subject the mind,
Blind those with eyes, and give eyes to the blind.
Sonnet : SinIf love sinful be, callst what thou thy deed?Sonnet : Sin4 years ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
Grounded on my sinful importuning,
When thy silence does cause of sinning breed,
Thy sin's greater causing mine's impuning,
I know not what faculties thou profess,
Wherefore, seeing not what naked does lie,
Were love sin what fool would err to confess?
And be denied, and thence in living die,
Immortal souls for mortal sins are burned,
My love's immortal, but why then not charred?
Hell hath no greater fury than love churned,
Yearning's flame can leave all infernoes scarred,
Stubborn certitude and falsehoods art thine,
Such offices yours, call'st thou sinful mine...
Stances of Nature : RevisedGrass: I'm trampled, stepped on, and not treated rightStances of Nature : Revised4 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
I've always wanted to be higher and be in the light
Trying to grow is what I do
but then I'm cut down and my dreams will never come true.
The trees have it all; they can reach the stars.
Tree: Grass tends to forget that I'm usually cut down too.
Higher I am, but then again everything I am changes to a different hue
And in the wintertime I'm left bereft and frozen in time.
Until another season comes and gives me a sign.
The clouds are the ones I envy the most; going where ever they please.
Cloud: I do not understand why the trees are jealous
Yes, we float place to place but then again we never stay
We might travel the world and bring life in May,
But we're not very substantial and it's always cold
Bringing about many things; including mold.
The sky is the one that should be envied by all.
Sky: Maybe I am the highest of all things-
having the whole world and bringing dawn into evening
showing the beauty of the universe and all it doe
