Literature
I missed it...
I missed it.
All the minutes,
ganged up on me in ambush,
crushing me in an instant.
Slipping by,
In plain sight and in darkness,
they mounted their assault,
with a relentless, compassionless
determination.
And I missed it.
Sure, I saw the hours
pass by like cars in traffic.
I saw the days,
flow through light and dark.
And yes, the months,
that came and went with the seasons.
But I missed the minutes,
the magical moments
that held the keys of true happiness,
the gift of God we often overlook,
until they’re gone.
I missed it,
but not as much
as I miss her.

Literature
Sublime-Rhyme
I lie in bed,
red streams,
beams, into tired eyes.
Why's, run through my head,
dead, to an 'outside' world,
hurled, from my dreams.
Seems that I wake,
break, into a day,
way off center.
Winter is near,
here to freeze,
seize,  my soul.

Literature
can't never could do
i feel a need
to Cum-
mings again.
if i ever
wasn't not going
to do it,
now is not the time.
why would i
can't do nothing
i shouldn't be
able to do?
even as i write
this, my hair grays
as the words
fade.

Literature
Perspective
The sky was perplexed
with the idea of black
and white and blue
and gray.
But the sea didn't mind,
it had seen worse
and better
and all points in between.
But the moon just laughed,
observing,
with a perfect smile,
above all.
And I,
I stood alone,
watching, oblivious
to all the fervor.
Thinking,
about my pitiful life
as the world
left me behind.

Literature
Future-Present-Past
I
I would ask you
to be my sunburn,
not so my skin crawls,
but to feel the warmth.
                        in my bones,
                        I feel the earth—
                        move
I would ask you
to cut my throat,
so I can feel my blood
flow. (emo I know)
                        a wet smooch
                        of rain drops—

Literature
Dichotomy
War,
a battle we all fight,
with one demon or another,
a person,
a thing,
a drug,
a vice,
ourselves…
War,
a necessary thing,
to truly be alive,
we must fight,
to live,
to fight.
War,
without it there is no love,
no joy,
no peace,
for without a fight,
what is a thing worth?
War,
it gives us everything we need,
to survive,
to prosper,
to be alive.

Some feathered haiku...

from the night sky
talons, then beak

I've not seen activity from you in quite some time! :hug: How are you?!?!?!?!!! :pointl: See all of that punctuation? It's a clea indicator that you've been under the radar for some time. >.> Or a clear indicator that I'm even more un-attentive than I thought :o
It's really nice to read a comment/reply from you in my message center. I hope to talk to you soon! You still have Skype? And my Skype too? If you still have your account that you had before, you'll find a message on it from me sometime later today. :hug:

Hey there you! :) It has been a loooooong time since I have been so active, so thank you for noticing! :)

I don't know that I ever had your Skye info, as I looked on my account and didn't see any special message! Please send me a note with that info so I can add you to my list.

Thanks for the sweet welcome back! :hug: it's good to be missed!
