There are so many questions and yet so little time to show

Romeo and JulietDear Juliet, I stare down at thee,Romeo and Juliet in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
I wonder why this must be.
I take this vile poison in one sip,
But there is one last thing I desire, your lips.
I kiss the warm lips and feel you stir,
My senses are unsure and leave such a blur.
You awaken as I begin to drink my last drink,
And in this moment I was brought to the brink.
I lay down and you ask me why,
But I cant say anything because Im so shy.
I close my eyes and you begin to cry,
I open them again and say Im sorry.
We lay there for hours, till our parents arrive,
And they see us together and alive.
Words seem to escape everyone,
So lets just leave them be and say done.
We are together forever,
And not the star-crossed lovers.
Tis not the day, with which we died,
But the one with which Shakespeare lied.
Here stand we together,
Not dead, but forever.
Do you Remember?Do you remember that most intimate of times,Do you Remember? in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
When all you did was cry because of the lies?
Do you remember those simple seconds
When all we did was hold hands and beckon
For all the love we could give and receive,
And remember everything that you can retrieve?
Do you remember those amazing moments
Where we came and left comments
About all the love and affection
That we have cared for without modifications
To this lifestyle we have come to share,
With all that love and adoration to show we care?
Do you remember those times
When we were who we are without all the rhymes?
I remember those specific moments
When we were in love and full of comments
About who we feel and fell in love
Especially all those magical times when we fit like a fit.
Oh those were the times,
The magical moments full of rhymes

And your dreams create a world of happiness
Apart from all the world and its sadness.
You wake and I am watching you
Because you seem so cute, yes you do,
So forever I will wait for you to rouse
Even if it takes tomorrow
Or I have to spend the rest of my life in your house.

That he may lay even an eye on such a beauty.
Journey to My HeartWhere am I? I do not know,Journey to My Heart in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
There are so many things that I will surely show,
But the maze that proceeds, will take you for a walk,
That will leave you for years to come, to talk.
The trip is scary and quite depressing,
But with me at your side, we will make it without stressing.
I know my heart as if it were me,
So let us begin this journey.
I hope it wont take to long,
Because I dont want to keep listening to this same song,
That seems to keep playing as a theme for my heart,
So lets begin from the start.
By the end of this journey, we will be closer,
And I cant imagine why it may bother
To take a wrong turn,
Because everyday with you, is like the Elysian Fields painted on a Grecian urn.
The lights went off and we were close
I took your hand and received my fair dose.
That one simple touch has left me breathless,
But with you in my life, I will never be heartless.

Sleep my darling and dream of the past,
So that way, maybe we shall last
In this infinity and confusion that is so rampant
In an age of depression and insanity.

I remember a season when I had lived
When my darkness never overcame the sun
I remember my purpose in a child
The flowers, those days have gone
I remember cherishing her very walk
Protecting where her foot fell down
I remember finding my joy in this
She was my calling, she was my crown
I remember her smile caring for me
Her heart knew I was her own
But I remember the day she forsook me
Useless she said, she had outgrown
Now in a wasteland I sit with debris
She dethroned me without a tear
How the pain has overcome me
as darkness carries in my fears

Is without threat
If you allowed your soul
To guide where your foot has tread
If you listened to your heart
A heart drenched in wine
If you took the hand of your maker
The hand of the great Divine
What darkness will death have
After youve bled yourself dry?
If there is no more you
How can you possibly die?
Death is what you make of it
Tasting bitter or sweet
It depends to whom you gave your hand
And to where you took your feet

With loving comfort his gestures flow
As he gracefully starts the dance

Something ThereSomething ThereSomething There in Urban & Spoken Word More Like This
When I first met you,
I couldnt stand you.
Yet, there was something there.

I saw a different side of you.
Yes, there was something there.
Our very first kiss,
Made my heart stop.
Definitely, there was something there.
The first time we made love,
Everything seemed so magical.
There was something there, and strong.
After our last conversation,
I cried so hard I couldnt breathe.
There was still something there.
And now that youre gone...
Every time you cross my mind,
My heart and stomach ache.
Theres still something there.
Piano PlayingPiano PlayingPiano Playing in Urban & Spoken Word More Like This
I will play this piano
Like you played my heart.
Each key an emotion,
A deep feeling of mine.
I will start as soft as Spring rain,
Or gentle kisses in the dark.
But I will finish with like a storm -
Or harsh words, whispered too readily.
For each note ended broken,
And every key was abused.
As I realized your lies,
As my feelings were crushed.
So Im playing this piano,
As you played with me.
Gentle kisses and loving whispers,
To hurtful words and careless thoughts.
With bloody, trembling fingers,
And a broken, dying heart.

Fairy Tales Are All LiesFairy Tales Are All Lies in Free Verse More Like This
Hearing your favorite love story,
I remember seeing tears in your eyes,
When you said that fairy tales are all lies,
And that I can never be your prince.
Maybe you need to understand that,
Ever since you said "I love you",
I have been seeing constellations through the day light sky.
Conflicting hearts in a world of strangers,
Breakable like marbles of glass.
Will you try with me the ultimate gamble,
To live a simple fairy tale's ending of happiness?
Forever Unspoken11/30/07Forever Unspoken in Free Verse More Like This
"I have something to tell you when I see you."
Is all I managed a thousand miles from home.
A home of my heart,
Encased by love.
I couldn't wait to see you,
To tell you the secret we both know.
As indescribable as time,
Fenced by only the speed of this traveling train.
I knew it before you called me:
Im going to meet you half way home.
And unknowingly to both of us,
They were the last words I heard from your mouth.
Never have I felt so guilty, culpable,
For betraying my own heart with time.
When I just wished that if only I had that chance to tell you,
That simple something from a thousand miles away.
I would have only needed to say that
I love you.

Breathing in your every word.
I couldnt fault you
Even if I tried.
Sometimes I hate you like a cynic.
Despairing in the silences.
I convince myself
I dont need you.
Sometimes I like you as a friend.
Jokes and taunts are all in good fun.
I dance with you
And have the time of my life.
Sometimes I want you like a whore.
Ripping at clothes,
Letting that heady feeling win me over.
Your kisses and touches
Take me away.
Sometimes I need you like a newborn.
Paralysed in the dark.
Im alone and unworthy
But I know you'll have me as I am.
A child, a cynic, a friend
When Im as fragile as an infant
Or when my desire turns to flames.
I know youll love me just for me
And thats the only thing I need,
For instead of falling backwards,
I fall safe into your arms.

I would watch her sometimes,
the sun shinning on her auburn hair,
the novel she was reading protecting her fair skin.

The sunlight is now absorbed by aging wood.
I still come here, you know.
Waiting to catch a glimpse of an angel.

RamblingLifeRambling in Free Verse More Like This
What is life
We look at stars and waste time making wishes
As men with lines
In salty water
Attempt to fool the fishes
And still they are fooled
We mourn at death and rejoice birth
Without the consequence to mother earth
We jump on a trailer park of bandwagons
And scream obscenities at our own mundane existence
We frequent restaurants
Who serve their shit
Wrapped in gourmet stars
We pay exorbitantly
And complain of taxes
We fill the air with complex waxes
We nuke each other
We call one president
A true retard
We send our kids
To fight a war
And mourn their death
When they are no more
We live in castles and lock the door
We never smell the sun no more
We throw our oil
Into the sea
And scream revenge when death we see
We miss the things that make us smile
The walks in parks
The running mile
A work of art
We dont admire
We forgot to paint
In our own quagmire
We miss the sound
Of an old church bell
God forbid our teachers might go to hell
We lose religi

Twas the night before Christmas and all through the town
Not a single light glowing, part of ESKOMs shutdown
Living in SA is really no joke
As I settled for the night, with my brandy and coke
When out on my porch, a scream pierced the air, I rushed to the door and shouted Whos there?
With unlicensed gun in my hand, I was ready
Holding on to the doorknob, the booze made me unsteady
Its not that I havent applied to the law, but I havent a record..no murder before.
So for a license I tried. Youre allowed to shoot a killer
Only after you died
Who could it be screaming, on this joyous night?
A butt-naked Santa, whod been jacked at the light
I smiled at this idiot as I looked up and down
What could this white man be doing, in a black part of town?
The deer, the sled, and the bag, its all gone
He looked in despair Oh whats to be done?
And then I am thinki
