Oh May This Cloud Never RipWhat is this? No lonely, no need for mind?
Where am I? A dream, a heart-bound bind?
It's both breathless and breathful, wild and kind.
Stress forgotten, no need for remind.
Truly unreal, for i feel the sting
of this mild pinch and i hear a sing.
Is it the crows abroad with aching wing?
They scream harsh words, with screeching ring.
"A dream! A dream! Ignorant sense.
All fiction and blank, these ladies and gents'.
You dream! You dream! of false resents.
Your so miniscule, weak, for a mind so immense."
A pop, a crash, a crumble, and rip.
A hope now lost, I begin my trip
back down to Earth where my body let slip,
so given to me a teased kiss on the lip.
Best Friend (Poem)Best Friend (Poem) in Free Verse More Like This
It's easy to get lost in a thought
Especially those that with you I walk
As I stroll from block to block
As I open my heart and begin to talk
Never have I met someone as attentive as you
As honest, compassionate, and worthy as you
With the right to judge but with a heart to forgive
There is no better example as to how one should live
I can look to the stars and find motivation
each one a reminder of a promise you've given to all nations
I look into your word for my inspiration
There one can find a solution to the hopeless desperation
As the seasons change so will my afflictions disappear
As change is always constant year after year
I close my eyes in peace as I feel you are near
You come beside me as you whisper in my ear
"All is well my son I am right here
I will keep you safe so do not fear
I am proud of you I rejoice in your faith
I will bless you and all that live in this place
Now sleep my son and know you're under my grace
All that from you, the enemy has stolen and taken away
God Always Comes Through (Poem)God Always Comes Through (Poem) in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
Sometimes we live through a horrible experience
It's not easy to wrestle with personal demons
In our impatience we do things we shouldn't do
But even then, in the end, God always came through
The things we hate, those things we do
The things we'd like to do, those we can't do
If Paul the apostle went through it, so will you
But even then, in the end, God always came through
When we misaligned our minds from the will of the divine
Sin seeped through to seduce with promises of good times
Promises we paid a heavy price believing they'd be true
But even then, in the end, God always came through
Whether your affliction is violence, sex, or drugs
An unlisted addiction or all of the above
And though you feel that this is all there is for you
Remember that in the end, God will always come through
It's not because you deserve it or He owes it to you
Not because of your talents or the work that you do
It's because He really loves you and His promise to you
Is that in end, He will always co
The Love of Jesus Christ (Poem)The Love of Jesus Christ (Poem) in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
It's because of love that I've found you
It's because of your love I've found truth
When sadness and strife filled my days
Your eternal love showed me the way
When I only knew regret and remorse
You sent messengers right to my door
When my heart turned love into hate
You turned my pain into hope and good faith
The world will know who is Jesus Christ
My life, my love I owe you my life
You can lighten even the darkest of nights
You are the reason that I continue to fight
Where would I have ended up if not for you
Lifeless with out purpose never knowing the truth
That we can aim higher then we'd ever thought to
as you reveal secrets of life that no one else knew
Just raise up your hands and let Jesus come through
He'll cleanse, straighten, and create a new you
Just praise and worship all he is and all he can do
Then run and tell others how Jesus saved you!
The Road Ahead (Poem)The Road Ahead (Poem) in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
These tears from my eyes have never fallen in vain
They're a sign that in me, your kingdom still reigns
That you're still working in the depths of my heart
Embedding that fear that sets us apart
That fear that brings us to do the right thing
That fear that motivates us to glorify our King
That fear that prevents us from living in sin
That fear of God we lost, when we let rebellion move in
I'll be the first to admit, It's not easy to walk on a straight line
While sin constantly tries to exploit the weakness in our minds
Thinking we will never get caught committing crime after crime
With deaf ears we hear and we see with eyes that are blind
We flake and we fall, we see it happen many times
But you still pick us up and wipe the tears from our eyes
When I can no longer walk, your foot prints replace mine
You who left heaven, to save billions of ungrateful lives
I still remember that long road I thought I had to walk all alone
But when I looked down, I saw your legs next to mine ready to go
Breakthrough The Cycle (Poem)Breakthrough The Cycle (Poem) in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
As the heart aches the mouth profanes
To habits and addictions we've become enslaved
Our frustrations increase as our sin remains
Yet in our strength no progress can be obtained
Only when we are so broken, it's Him we start seeking
The one whom in our suffering has been silently weeping
His words never ceased as He has always been speaking
We ignore that voice that has been internally preaching
He sends out His faithful to testify of a love so great
It is not in His nature to forsake and let you fade away
He is determined to bring you back to that wonderful place
That in your search to fill your heart, you lost the way
Now you sit in worry, pain, and sorrow
Hoping for that miracle, a new tomorrow
Consuming all that will help you numb it all and let you forget
But your own strength only brings a new day with more regrets
Look into the depths of your heart
Remember that even you, He has set apart
From your side He hasn't chosen to depart
Take it now, seize it, and accept to restart
Deliverance! (Poem)Deliverance! (Poem) in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
By: Brian Dominguez
Feeling as if I'm drowning
But there is no water surrounding
On my knees, on the ground I keep pounding
Can anyone hear me!? I feel my soul shouting
Feeling claustrophobic but there is nothing crowding me?!
Physically everything is going perfectly, so what's happening?!
So peaceful on the outside but inside something's bombing me
It's like I'm tied down and bound, who can set me free?
I can't touch it, it's something I can't even see
How can I fight an invisible enemy?
my strength is failing, I'm down on my knees
Can't win this mortal combat, just hurry up and finish me!
Then the deja vu hits me, I've been here before
I fought this dude once, now he's come back for more
Battered and bruised I'm spiritually sore
Holy anger rising, my spirit is reviving at my core
Through my mouth a new language explodes
I can't understand it but my strength's back ten fold
I can see the chains that I couldn't see before
They've just shattered and fallen to
Sincerest Hope (Poem)Sincerest Hope (Poem) in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
I'm not looking for sobs, I'm not looking for tears
I'm praying that you'd want to transform the rest of your years
That you'd make that decision that would deliver you from all of your fears
And that all the confusion in your mind would be finally cleared
It's been so long, but I'm still here
Praying and believing that you'll let God near
That one day I'd wake up to the sound of music in my ear
Hearing your voice worship, singing, how Jesus changed your life after so many years
I'd often ask my self Why is this so important?
Why not give up the hope and just ignore it?
Why feel discouraged when I hear you're still exploring?
Frustrated when I see your so close to exploding
I realized it's not because I'm still tied down to you
Not because I can't forget the time I spent with you
It's not because my heart still belongs to you
It's simply because I may have never found Him myself, if it weren't for you
You're beautiful, you're gorgeous, yes that's all true
But what does it matter, when
The Need To Move On (Poem)The Need To Move On (Poem) in Free Verse More Like This
Why does it all still haunt me
Why do memories still taunt me
It may all just be in my head
Mental thoughts as if to be led
To think I've not moved at all,
even though I've begged
To be at peace but instead
My peace was merely a temporary shed
Blown away by the winds of a time I've left behind
Now it's found me again and I look for new signs
I can only see that evil smirk as the enemy thinks of my demise
Now I pray to my Lord who hath saved me time after time
Why has my right to love feel more like a crime
Why must I live in exile of my own feelings of my own mind
Save me Lord and take me into better times
I may not deserve it Lord but i know that you are kind
I wish not to be lost in my own remorse and transgressions
Only you o lord have the root access to restart my life session
I don't want to hate any more
She that has left only pain and anger in my core
Why is it that I haven't truly moved on
Help me find the reason why my season of peace is now gone
I can only hold on to the rock
Afraid To Be Alone (Poem)Afraid To Be Alone (Poem) in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
It's obvious being alone is one of your greatest fears
It's why you fall for any man who can sweet talk you in your ear
You know you've been through all this ordeal before
But you ignore the signs and to your heart you always open up the door
It's like you don't believe you're really worth it any more
Every man you've let in takes all you have and demands more
Stomps over your heart and just lets your tears pour
Time for a change, you need your body and soul restored
You need to look up and see there's more to your life story
You need to accept the need for change and just give Him glory
Submit to a greater plan, you're better off in The Lord's hands
You've done it your way and have only found disappointment in the hands of man
The Lord has promised to never leave nor forsake you
That's more than any man who claimed the same truth
For all the promises God gives, He always sees them through
Time to shake off the pain and rejection your heart has bounded to
It's not to late to change th
My Revelation (Poem)My Revelation (Poem) in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
I could have sworn that you and I were meant to be
The hardest truth was shown to eyes that refused to see
My peace was gone, a broken heart and tears that never ceased
This is all that I was, all that was left of me
The countdown to my self destruction had been initiated
Piece by piece I broke apart as I became more devastated
If only from the Lord I had not deviated
This series of catastrophic events could have been evaded
Lesson learned and I've now organized my priorities
Jesus has risen to the top and no longer a minority
Love and forgiveness was His gift to me
I can now walk peacefully as one of the redeemed
The nightmares no longer haunt nor steal my peace
Hope and faith is now the air I breath
God's word is the food that I seek
For when I follow God first,
all else will be added on and given unto me
Mark 4:12 (NKJV)
so that Seeing they may see and not perceive, And hearing they may hear and not understand; Lest they should turn, And their sins be forgiven them.

She hides in the shadows, sheilding her face,
this child never laughs, this child never smiles.
Longing the warmth of a mother's embrace,
her body is broken from wandering miles.
Her face stained with tears, from nights when she cries,
she walks throgh the darkness, screaming their names.
Despite all the pain, her hope never dies,
she's searching to find the place whence she came.
They left her behind, did they even care?
She calls to the ones that watch from above.
She falls to the ground as her strength does wear,
all she ever wanted was to be loved.
As she takes her last breath, the light shines through,
because the devil was an angel too...

And those in the darkness
Will find light of day.
"Tell them," said Love

When I walked into the room I felt your gaze,
Which I purposely ignored and looked away.
I met the gaze of everyone but you;
I bestowed a smile that wasn't true.
And though my heart was torn I hid it well.
Happiness became my outer shell.
I chatted and I laughed and I appeared
To be having too much fun for any tears.
Your gaze was always on me, so intense
My partners wondered why I stumbled when I danced.
For hours I was worried of your coming;
I fled as much as I could without running.
The music and the food and fancy dress
I would remember but for my distress.
While I flirted and I curtseyed and I danced
You watched along the walls as if entranced,
And I blushed to think that you were watching me
Doing things I knew I shouldn't be.
But I chose to enjoy all the host could offer
I chose the road that was straighter and was softer.
Then suddenly, you caught me unawares,
I let my guard down for a moment, you were there.
When you asked me for that dance could I refuse?
I could not think o
Blowing KissesThough discontent, I bide my time,Blowing Kisses in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
And spout my words in a hurried rhyme,
And wish for wistful happenings
That should be found in a million things,
Like morning dew or sunset glow,
Or the graceful fall of powder snow.
And I must wait. Discontent am I
To just blow kisses at the sky.
To be gazed upon, and feel the fire,
That draws me in and lifts me higher,
To feel the warmth is not enough;
I must be burned by this growing love.
In restless hurting and thirst for more,
Im wishing youd break down my door,
And despite the gaze Im not satisfied
With just blowing kisses at the sky.
Theres not enough of you with me
And I must go on, unhappily,
And never see what I want most-
Tis fleeting, obscure, like a ghost.
And life stampedes in glassy blur,
And of only one thing I am sure:
Theres not enough of you, so why
Must I blow kisses at the sky?
Is there a reason I must wait,
Be always from you separate
And only feel you fleetingly,
Wishing you were here with me

I've come to a place
Where the shadows are lifted
And evil abased,
And my own inner torment
At last is erased.
By the side of the pool
At the end of the stream
By the old waterfall
I'm a dreaming a dream
And the terror's released
In a heart-wrenching scream.
After this, every sound,
Every tear, all the pain
That I harbor within
Is drowned in the rain
And the shadows have gone-
I won't see them again.
I take off the scales
And step into the pool
That's refreshing and deep
And surprisingly cool,
And I then realize
I am naught but a fool.
You give a great shake
Of your soft, golden mane,
And your deep-throated purr
Sounds a bit like my name,
And my lion, my lamb
Are now one and the same.
I enter the falls
And close my eyes tight,
The water pours down,
I'm deprived of all sight,
For all there is left
Is you, there's no blight,
No stain, and no scar,
No wound and no worry,
For they've all been replaced
By your peace and your glory,
And I've finally found

I got love, and it hurts like fire.
So, so low and falling much higher;
Needing a feeling that words can express
Instead of the ones that mean even less.
I got love, and as much as it burns,
I take the coming and going in turns,
And wish I knew what to do with the heart
That takes its own edges and tears them apart.
Lord, don't let this untrustworthy soul
Send little pitfalls in front of the goal.
I stare with fear at the oncoming finish
And feel my resolve slowly diminish.
You got the heart that ruins itself
Put away safely, up on your shelf
For timing is crucial as far as I know,
The stopwatch is ready- I'll get set, and go.
I got love, and it's so far away
It taunts up ahead and darkens my day
'Cause hope never far from my spirit resides
And it takes its sweet time in coming, besides.

But you're not here yet,
And I'm beginning to doubt you.
I wait, and count the minutes,
I listen for the sound
Of footsteps, but the hours pass,
Darkness falls all 'round.
I've taken a seat
By the side of the lane
And I try to ignore
The darkness and rain;
You said you were coming
To meet me tonight.
I see no one else
By the pale moon light.
You asked me to wait,
Said it might take a bit,
That I'd think you were late,
And so here I sit.
I don't mind a rest
For just awhile
But the hours that pass
Have weakened my smile.
I'm restless, I'm cold,
The darkness complete.
And I still hear no sound
Of approaching feet.
But I'm hearing your voice
And I'm feeling your peace.
The hour grows later-
My patience has ceased.
I drop my pen,
I close my book.
The sun starts to rise
As on I look.

You could calm with no words said.
I wanted to be just like you,
Big and strong; so noble -kind,
I watched you as you fought each day,
A greater man no one could find.
You worked yourself away for us,
While she worked to pierce your soul,
It took her years to win that fight,
For your heart was made of gold.
'Sing a little song for you,
With eyes wide open; heart so true'
Humour; music your escape,
While love your blessing and a curse,
For she used what she knew best,
Hit you; struck you where it hurt.
You taught me love; healed my wounds,
You barred the way and drew me close,
You were my Hero, and as you lie,
I cherish you the very most.
Dad you were my Superman,
I loved you till the day you died,
I wish that I had known back then,
Yet in my heart you're still alive.
'I love you Dad, I say Goodbye,
As all things noble, one day die'
TahliaOnce a girl who freely roamed,Tahlia in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
She was left without her Light,
He had crushed her, broke no bones,
As he held her way too tight.
She would dance and sing and play,
The sunshine shone throughout her face,
But when she let him back to stay,
Dullness; deadness stole its place.
To speak of what she was- a shell,
A lonely child without a friend,
Hed captured her within his spell,
Stabbed her; tortured to no end.
Her smile would never reach her eyes,
So much pain she tried to hide
Today she stands caressed in Light,
She fills the room with all her joy
Shed stuck around, fought the fight,
No longer puppet to his ploys.
Feel the passion in her soul,
Her love of life is coming back,
With eyes set squarely on her goal,
She has left the beaten track.
Independent, kind and strong,
She cannot see what she once was,
With fear and helplessness long gone,
Her eyes no longer look so lost.
Her life is hers now once again,
Three cheers for one of my best friends
ArchangelHer eyes sweep through the broken land,Archangel in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
She wishes she could understand,
This wasn't what we all had planned,
The death of man, the death of man.
Her vision blurs and then she sees,
A world of beauty, lakes and trees,
Creatures living happily,
In harmony, in harmony
Her sight is dual, she can compare,
What darkness brings with its despair,
And all the things that light can bear,
How will they fare? How will they fare?
A war between these different sides,
A battle between day and night,
A crucial clashing, natural fight,
Of dark and light, of dark and light.
The darkness has its tempting ways,
Seducing you to start to stray,
While taking all your hopes away,
So life is gray, so life is gray.
Yet light will bring a world to you,
That's beautiful and dazzling new,
With love and courage, virtue too,
The sun shines through, the sun shines through.
Each person has the choice to make,
Will you choose to give or take?
Will you build or will you break?
The world's at stake, the world's at stake

Do you not see within my eyes?
Cant you feel the pain I hide?
Masked behind this joyous guise?
Lies arent always spoken- know,
That all I am I cannot show
In The Solace of NightmaresIn the solace of nightmares, of darkness that creeps,In The Solace of Nightmares in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
And desolate screams that pierce through the air,
There is safety in pain and troubling sleep,
Where theres nowhere to hide and no one to care.
Danger is present; there is fear everywhere,
Every step that you take leaves you broken and weak
Yet you keep walking, your senses aware,
In the solace of nightmares, of darkness that creeps.
Blinded and lost like a wandering sheep,
A figure comes past you, then nobodys there,
All you can hear are the words that you speak,
And desolate screams that pierce through the air.
Your strength can endure all the turmoil you bear,
None can compare, they would lie in a heap,
Under torture, and times that are cruel and unfair,
There is safety in pain and troubling sleep.
Some secrets you share and the others you keep,
Some sides that you hide and the others lay bare,
Trust is not something that youll ever need,
Where theres nowhere to hide and no one to care.
Speak But A LittleI write as it is what I do,Speak But A Little in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
To speak the truth I hold inside,
For words get caught before my lips,
And stay within so they can hide.
Where sounds arent formed, emotions lie,
Behind a bubbly face they sit,
I laugh with joy, forget all things,
I do not show one little bit.
To gain my trust is no mean feat,
For you must prove yourself as well,
To know my thoughts, you have these words,
There isnt much I need to tell.
I shall not speak when you should know,
For in these words, my feelings flow
EntrancedHer hair falls all over her eyes,Entranced in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
As she laughs at dirty jokes,
She smiles, dances- does a turn,
She doesnt know what she invokes.
Her warmth- it spreads beneath her skin,
As she shines with natural Light,
Her body moves with grace beknown,
To a Queen or bird in flight.
Her mind is nothing normal though,
With her eyes, she scouts the room,
I hope that she wont shut me out,
From what she thinks way too soon.
Tell me why I am entranced,
From a single little glance
Balance of LifeTo love another, love thyself,Balance of Life in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
To heal another, keep your health,
To understand them, you must feel,
Something more than cold hard steel.
To rid of doubt, you must believe,
To rid of lies, first not deceive,
To rid of death, face its eye,
Feel its presence till you die.
To take a life, you must give yours,
To see your strengths, you must see flaws,
To see the truth, you must see farce,
The battles, war- surrounding us.
All is balanced, all is true,
See what you can make of you
PrayWatch her as she passes,Pray in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
Her tiny feet betray,
The fear that speaks within her,
The words she cannot say.
For she may be an adult,
With eyes that speak of pain,
But in her lies that child,
That wants to run away.
Confused and ever wandering,
In fog- she cannot see,
All that came before now,
All distant memories.
She hears the stiffened silence,
It tells of all the times,
That she had prayed for rescue,
From all her mothers crimes.
Yet sunshine lit her window,
It led her through the mist,
It held her hand to safety,
She wanted to exist.
With hope she gazed in shock as,
In wonderment she lay,
A princess granted freedom,
And all she did was pray.
Deadened HeartYou robbed me and replaced with pain,Deadened Heart in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
I will not be who you became,
A person with a deadened heart,
A soul that lives immersed in dark,
You cannot see, youre just a flea,
Theres nothing more youll ever be.
So angry- I am filled with rage,
Theres so much now I cannot say,
I want to scream and tear apart,
Rip out that cold and icy heart,
From the cavern where it lies,
For you are one that I despise.
You stole my hero from my life,
You stabbed with that gleaming knife,
You broke me down, you smashed my face,
Yet I wont live through this disgrace,
You were the one that was to blame,
Not that you care, or live in shame.
You try to break my loving heart,
And tear my happiness apart,
Yet you cant see how I can love,
And float and soar so far above,
As all you see and all you know,
Is hate; as it within you grows.
Your sad attempts to grasp a hold,
With hands so wretched- ever cold,
Will never take my love away,
For I will love you everyday,
And as I stand b

Before once more it begins anew!
Recurring, each day plays its part,
Before returning once more to its start!
Cycle of Seasons dancing their way,
From Winter's long Night to Summer's long Day!
Turns first the Wheel to Samhain,
When not all thats there can be seen!
The Veil twixt worlds is now so thin,
That our loved ones can come back in!

Birth and death, with all their pain!

As the weather begins to turn much colder!

Reborn again the Sun who will Rule!
Evergreen spruce, Red blood on White snow,
These are the colours, when nothing doth grow!
Blanketed in white the land doth lie,
Cold winds blow from northern sky!
Festive feast with presents we gave,
Relics of times past when others did save!
To Imbolc now the Wheel doth Turn,
In the cold darkness Brigids candle doth burn!
As daylight now begins to get longer,
So Suns light now becomes st
