Literature
The moment I knew you loved me
The seats were hard as teeth,
and the air was slick with wet heat.
The Ferris Wheel engine had overheated,
and we were inches from the top.
Our bodies were melting-cotton-candy sticky,
and where our clothes left cracks
our skin sucked to the plastic,
and boiled where the metal bolts poked through.
The fairgrounds stretched fat and empty below,
and the sun screamed fiery daggers at our backs.
And in this violent heat you took my hand,
our greasy palms scalding as they slip-slid into each other.
And you spoke.
Such a small thing,
but it sliced deep and cold into the inferno of my bad decision.
"The beach was probably too crowded anyway."

NOT PERFECT
I'm not a perfect person.
Even though I like to think I am.
I've made many mistakes.
And there are many things I do regret.
So many things I wish to forget.
But they make me who I am.
And they helped me grown into this man.
This is the reason why,
That I can run and even fly,
When I want to crawl
Or feel that I will fall
I stand and live this life.
The mistakes I have made so far.
Have forged the man from the very start.
And so I'm not a perfect person.
And though I never meant to hurt you,
And I wish I could take it back,
I can only learn and grow in this too.
I learn and live my life,
One small step at a time,
Sometimes they do not go forward,
There are some that I must warn,
Will go back the way I came.
Steps that are carried on in shame,
But without those fallen steps,
I would not be the man I am,
And it can't be changed even if you fret,
I will learn from it if I can.
I'm not a perfect person.
And that is what makes me a man.

Wildgrown Ivy
The raging sky turns darkish blue,
the clouds are covering the moon.
It feels I´m trapped inside this doom
and there is nothing i can do.
I can help it, I´m sedated.
I just wander in my mind.
Living life being isolated,
ripper of my own devise.
Too despoiled, I feel lonely.
My thoughts are poisoned inside out.
Somber morning lasting longer,
misty cover to our eyes.
Looking life inside this forest,
I´ve just killed the faith inside.
Wildgrown ivy they have called me,
things I touch can´t stay alive.

Waning
Yesterday my world revolved
Around absolutely nothing.
It felt good not being chained
By obligation,
Nor to be at the mercy of the tides.
Debris is what I am,
A fragment of a forgotten puzzle,
Whose image would have lost relevance
Whether whole or not
Long before it even mattered.
The full spectrum of the dotted skies,
The night riddled with holes bleeding light,
Patched with clouds,
The moon screaming between them,
Shrouded behind them,
Insane in its glory,
No one can hear you,
No one can look at you for long,
Wane as you always do -
When the terror of being alone is too great,
Return in full blaze,
Just to be ignored again,
But I'll be here,
The debris with absolutely nothing
To oblige it
But to decay with you again and again,
Until we are no more.

The Way You Make Me Feel
The Way You Make Me Feel
For the longest time now
I have been alone in this world
Detached from the companionship
That only a lover could provide
I had become a reclusive troll
Hiding in my dark cave
My heart and soul slowly
Turning colder as time went by
Then one day you came into my life
Reaching out across the ocean
Breathing warmth into my soul
And touching my heart
In the short time we have known each other
You have made me feel alive again
With each letter I receive from you
My heart races when I read your words
I may never know what you saw in me
That brought you into my life
Or if this is a wonderful dream
That I do not want to wake from
No matter how this dream ends for us
For better or for worse
You will always have a special place
In my heart

Despair
You cannot be the Eve in my garden.
I do not desire your peddling of
apples and signifiers
as the darkness is choking out the moon
and this bridge leads only to Cain.
I am dreaming in symbols again,
and the madness of pills
is not honey enough for this desert.
This bread is not enough,
fed by cloven hands,
dust in my parched mouth.
Leave me alone!
Already the pounding of battle drums
fill my dull(ed) spaces
and all I can hear
is the falling name of Adam.

My Poem-Losing Sweet Joy
Losing Sweet Joy
Why is it that every time
Joy lifts me up on its sparkling cloud
I always have to fall over?
And things don’t turn out the way I’d hoped
My cheer now dangles from a spiteful rope
And I’m left without a thread of my dreams I’ve so highly revered
My imagination, once filled with laughter and smiles
Means so much to me
But it soured into a dusky swamp
Of strange illusions and rotten obsessions
How I truly wish to be free…
And as the music was playing slowly in my mind
It drifted here and there, light and lilting loving melodies
Without a care in the world
But now it has flattened to a morose and darkening sound
With jarring notes clashing so loud, the dramatic swelling showing the wounds I feel
And a reassured heart that’s unfurled
Why must this buoyant light be felt by me and everyone
Only to be so sharply wrenched by misfortune’s vicious hand?
Does it mean we can only hold the content we get from warmly loving ourselves
Before being pu

Jibber Jabber
I have to go get shot today
I wonder should I run away?
I could climb and hide up in a tree
And live with squirrels safe and free
The last time that they took me there
They stripped me to my underwear
They  hammered me upon my knees
And checked me like a dog for fleas
He said he’d take my temperature
I said you can’t put that up there
He took a stick from out his coat
And tried to stick it down my throat
To take my pulse he sent a nurse
but without it I might feel much worse
So when she tried to grab my wrist
I bit her on the arm and hissed
The Doctor ran back in the room
And told me of my coming doom
He said since from his nurse I’d fled
To take me to a vet instead

Math and Peace
I am nothing but an empty vessel,
Reusable and environmentally-safe.
I'll filter information at the speed of misconception
- smooth and stain-free -
As you polish your perceptions
Into illusions of grandeur and apathetic Romanticism.
I am nothing but misinterpretation
- just unscripted potential -
And you are something young and stupid.
The world is a stage -
And you're something like an act,
Something searching for a theme - a twist - a script.
I ate it.
And I no longer hunger - I no longer thirst...
Acid indigestion until the curtains fall.

To My Darling, Rose
To My Darling, Rose
Oh, my darling Rose,
My eyes well up with tears,
That fall just like the rain.
As you read this, remember my love
For you, strong as the thunder,
As I tell you, my dying wish.
Oh, what could be my wish?
Our love has blossomed like a rose,
And not been shattered by the thunder
Of fathers’ rage, or destroyed by mothers’ tears.
Oh, our passionate love
Has persisted like a flooding rain.
As I write to you, it has begun to rain.
And as I write o’er this wish,
About our ever-lasting love,
I see your face, oh Rose,
In a shimmering pool of my tears,
That land as loud as thunder.
Outside the thunder
Crashes, adding to the pounding rain.
My heart aches with the tears
I know you will shed. But I wish
For you not to cry, my Rose
For never-ending, is our love.
But, how strong is love?
Could it shatter like thunder?
Or wilt like a rose?
Does it end like rain?
I know I wish
For our love to last as long as tears.
Down fall my tears
As I think about our love
As I thin

Passed Away
Passed away, they said.
Passed away.
As if somehow,
by tinkering around with the words a little,
they could alleviate the flame in my chest,
as if they could untie the knot.
Passed away doesn’t hold
    in it the meaning,
         the value, of who i lost, held.
    passed away doesn’t come near
                     to describing
                                   the pain of what,

Art, Pain, and Love
A friend of mine sounds like a star
A jazz singer with an acoustic guitar
It seems she knows the meaning of art
A friend of mine writes like a poet
His words and emotions show it
It seems he knows the meaning of art
A guy I know can really draw
Puts pencil to paper and leaves us in awe
He must know the meaning of art
And everything I thought I had
All the things I thought were mine
Are being ripped away from me
Till I'm deaf and blind.
I tried to swim to the surface
I tried to stay above it all
I'm gasping for air
As I sink into normalcy
I have sunk
I have sunk
I have sunk
I have sunk
A man drinks his life away
In a bar downtown, so they say
I guess he knows the meaning of pain
A girl dyes her blonde hair black
With a blade in her hand, there's no looking back
She must know the meaning of pain
A child cries, violated
Could he have stopped, or somehow saved it
He must know the meaning of pain
And everything I thought I knew
All the things that I went through
Are being tossed away from m

Is this really our world?
Is this really our world?
What have we done to it?
Why is the Earth dying?
Tell me, why does it weep?
Just sit down with me, child,
that I may tell you why;
you see, the world has changed,
and not for the better.
It just seems yesterday,
when the waters were clear,
trees, whales and bears still lived,
and the air was still pure.
Now, the world's gone crazy,
locked in destructive gear,
spiralling on downward,
zooming in on the fall.
We can't swim anymore,
or eat the oceans' gifts…
The waters are murky
and contaminated.
We can't inhale pure air -
it's all but disappeared;
what little reach our lungs
are polluted remains.
What are trees, you ask me?
What's a bear or a whale?
Let me show you a book
I kept from the old days…
The trees all have vanished,
Whales and bears have faded,
and before long our past
will have caught up with us.
The balance is tipping
and the Earth decaying,
But listen to me, child!
Hope still lies in our hands…
The seeds of life are here,
strong and he

OK, I'm a little slow on the uptake. It appears this site is pretty much inactive. I'm curious, (if anyone still visits here) how does a place that seemed to be so vibrant just stop without any apparent reason?
