Josette's Flames

Josette's Flames

Dust fluffed with each step Josette took, her heavy boots kicked up cloud after cloud as she lugged her duffel across the open expanse. Music poured from the site ahead, and people moved past her, hurrying to the show. She could feel the music growing louder, the deep bass pushing her heart faster, pulsing along with the blood in her veins. It was a part of her, and she it. She could see the mass of people ahead, a crowd writhing with the auditory sensuality overwhelming them. She seemed almost nondescript, a scarf over her hair holding it tightly back, a slim black tank top and snug leggings encased her legs. Most of the people passing her

My choice.

M

My choice.

It's a beautiful fall day, a crisp late afternoon with the smells of winter beckoning and promising nightfall all too soon.  I'm walking home with you, a smiling and happy facade; keeping you completely unaware of the turmoil squirming and screaming in my mind.  I half listen as you animatedly fill me in on what I missed last week on our favorite trashy teen drama.  I know that I can't come with you to your house.  I know that if I go in the last two weeks won't have mattered, but I can't stop.  I turn with you towards your street without any hesitation. You ask me again about the surprise vacation my parents spirited me away two weeks ago.

Tamed Heathen

You rip me out of my home. Take away my world. Call me an ignorant heathen. Press a bible to my hand, And cut away my heritage. Cast aside, like the offal From a discarded carcass. Throw out the bits You find unpleasant. Show off your tamed Injun. Your proper school girl. I can still dream. Of open grass, and peace. Of freedom to believe Whatever I choose.

Cricket's Memory

Cricket's Memory

Laying in her bunk Cricket looked at the ceiling, wondering when the morning trumpets would blare, ruining the peaceful serenity of the early wilderness air.  The smell of dead campfires from the previous night permeated through the mustard yellow canvas tent flaps, reminding her of the previous night's talent contest, and how she and Rosa lost to those stupid boys from Tent J.  Who cares that they nearly perfectly reenacted the Beatles "Help", it was nothing compared to the dance routine she and Rosa painstakingly created and persuaded the rest of their tent to perform with them.  Rosa did amazingly, such graceful movements.  Rosa.

Half Tomorrow

Half Tomorrow

Half gone Half here Half pain Half Sorrow Half tomorrow That's when I see you again Hardly a hummingbirds wind we've been apart Yet it feels as if I have lost you There is a hole in my chest that you fill There is a place in my heart named you Right now it's empty and barren I think of sleeping tonight In our bed Alone Half gone Half here Half pain Half Sorrow Half tomorrow

Sweet Little Sammy

Sweet Little Sammy

It's time we meet a little boy named Sammy This boy was always honest and good He was the epitome of a proper little boy Never would his family nor friends leave him alone His smile and laugh were oh so sugary sweet At night he would lay and of silence dream He would try and pretend to always be good They would call and cry and never let him alone He received every gift of which any boy would dream He would thank them and smile ever so sweet Take every toy from every girl and boy They would giggle and smile and say "Oh Sammy!" All he wanted was a single moment alone You know they say teeth will rot with too much sweet So this is
See all

The Truth of Romeo and Juliet

The Truth of Romeo and Juliet

That time has come, the moment for you to savor Your final act is done, you will feel pain no more The vial drops from your finger tips, you look at your love Pressing yours to her dead lips, her beauty as that of a dove You feel the ice ravage you, you stare at her eyes They open it can't be true, you know it has all been lies Seeing you at peril, her lips twist into a smile You feel the poison kill, those few drops from the vial She rises and walks away, leaving you to die This truly was your day, you think as she says good bye

Ode to Betrayal

Ode to Betrayal

You know my heart, you know my soul We believed in love and beauty We thought it would never finish But you had a weakness within Your eyes and spirit dark as kohl What I have done is my duty My love will never diminish Even to my own hearts chagrin My spirit cannot pay your toll The price is not worth the booty Too difficult to relinquish Now I have only to begin

My roses

My roses

The roses in my garden died long ago Wilting and fading into memory Time passes neither friend nor foe Rubbing at my mind like emery Silky red petals turning to dust Blowing away upon the wind Taking with it all my love and lust Goddess knows I've sinned Hoarding to myself natures grace Her one and only true obsession I relinquish her holy embrace To have the rose in my possession

Love feels like

Love feels like

Can some one tell me what love feels like? I cannot seem to remember one moment Have I just swung my third strike? I believe all of my chances are spent Could my soul have no mate to find Could there be no one out there across the plane My own spirit it seems has fallen blind And pain falls through my heart like rain Now to those that know this illustrious emotion I have but one lowly simple task 'Tis only one small mental notion Can you tell me what love feels like I ask

Book, part one

                                    ~PROLOGUE~  Pain swamped her forehead as her eyes opened a sliver, and sunlight from her window flashed in her eyes.  Her alarm clock was screaming at her, telling her it was time to wake up to another wonderful day.  Delilah groaned and grabbed her alarm clock, covering her eyes with her pillow.  With a quick tug she pulled it out of the socket and threw it across the room, making yet another dent in her already pockmarked wall.  She was drifting back to sleep, slipping away from her thundering headache when, it felt like she had been asleep just a moment, she heard the front door to her house open

God is a Rhythm

God is a rhythm He can't be owned There are times And these times can't be owned The times are defined By new discoveries New artistry New atrocity New insecurity And new beings Introduced to a new world That only exists for them And they interpret it As best they can And they take As much as they can hold And the things they accomplish They claim as their own But they are really just tools of their time With no knowledge of what path to choose So they listen for any clues And peer pressure Good advice Punishment Praise Rules Lies are what the get So insecurity begins "Is this who I should be?"

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ As I'm writing this poem I realized that much of what is on the page is very VERY old.  And as the saying goes... I think it's time to put away childish things.  I'm going to delete old pieces and photos and revamp my page here to go with the mindset and maturity leve I am at now.  I will save the pieces but I feel as I write that I must break away from my limitations.  I can't seem to write anything I love outside of a four line stanza ABAB rhyming structur

The Earthquake

The Earthquake

I don't know who all has heard about this but there was an 8.9 Earthquake yesterday. I'm going to post some quotes from news stories along with link to their own stories. Talk to your families and friends about the various charities and giving blood. I would be donating but I can't right now because of my recent peircings. Please you guys, help out. Quote: -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Scientists describe Sunday's devastating earthquake off the island of Sumatra as a "megathrust" -- a grade reserved for the most powerful shifts in the Earth's crust. --------------------------------------
