Erosion

I once was young, proud and so vain. Years arrive at me, aspect it changed. I see youth at play, no regard for days coming for change, to wrinkle the face. See all of the stares translating remove the facade you live in you must choose. It won’t last forever, a stride in your feet….

Always The Same

What is drawn in the fleeting light I do feel it needs repeating. All is not fine I cope in my own little ways I stay; routines known. Back to the cry I’ve kept all time inside my mind is you so divine. I am not normal without a formal memory eternal, I am so…

Beyond Sight

A splendid tremor of that you’ve felt is better than sight; my icy heart melts. Beyond sight serves you well so breathe. All of the wretched twists in me leave. Don’t believe lies of eyes rise above judgement trivial things heal in love. Your eyes can be a tool that overtakes; what for me do…

Relics Of Our Love

The relics of our love are scattered around here I’m sentimental in the love we found. *** Clothes they have an air of perfume yours is so familiar I would hold for tears a cure. *** Years have gone slow with pain ruminating in my bones and soul while contemplating. *** Is this real that…

My Name In A Vein

Ask me what it would take to consider injecting your kiss, beneath my skin enter. For my own part I consider you great art. I want to kiss you; so rip proper logic apart. I’m not confident to lean in and to begin pressing my lips firm against your skin. I’d imagine revelry; upside down…

Self-Educated Lessons

I built your image in words written down that served no justice so I burn them now. Maybe I’ll learn one day how I can behave at the sight mysteries buried in what you say. Lost is the cracking sparks of ember’s flash I feel the warming light kissing my face at last. What could…

Siren

You conjure to exercise your illuminating ways. What you said was clear but hindsight is in a haze. You’re excited to please eyes that look at you; but any that do pursue you alter and confuse. Moving on some stage, where you spin a trance, do you remember what we shared in our dance? My…

Arisen Once More

There’s a chance I did what I swore I wouldn’t again do. I fell from my shroud in clouds at finding sweet sound in you. The path I now walk here on has tulips and iris there beside a path that my feet walk upon; it beckons what I hide inside. Expose me and reveal…

Unsearched Feelings

I’m standing on edge at the climatic scene that involves us both at heart-felt intensity. Refreshing waves they wash over me my being and honestly my love I wonder if I’m breathing. Suffocating anticipation has me gasping breath that surges through me and it scares me to death. I’ve examined myself I try to keep…

My Love My Angel

Dreams are as if angels they keep the dark at bay. The dark tries seep in me your thought keeps it away. Maybe I should let it in. Maybe I should let it consume the void around me where here your not in my room. I can not give in to despair, not while your…

A Daydream Away

Daydreams they stay as reality it slips away. See it now on my face; war torn has this day. I play my role as I do kind eyes I let soothe me as I now do choose daydreaming of you. All else is not real now, I will let all others down even if my…

Having A Heart

I was heartbroken that my heart hurt so; but I am glad to know that I have one to hurt.

To Love Again

I’ve been looking at your mind, from the ink you’ve left behind. Say what is there left to decide what it is you did want to find? As far as what my eyes can see, what you try and do is to believe all the ins and outs of your reality. I see that you’re…

To Love Makes Us Kin

I have beckoned God to take the pain of loss. I have paid in agony crucifying myself aloft. I fell far once yes I was far below the eyes. That looked out far bringing biting bitter ice. That bit disappointment seeping deep in my bones. From faces no longer there, no soft laughs, just alone….

Where I Walk For You

Tribulation is born from identities torn from directions sworn never taken or worn. For what I do I own my words do not show, where my heart below, set unto what grows. Conflicted yes true. What I am for you. All I’ve been through, judge me please do. Because words confuse, what’s true and the…

Like When I First Saw You

All the while my day’s gone. Twisted vision all day is torment. As I slip into oblivion I scream of the weakness my heart for rent. Lend me a eye or an ear so you may come as easily as go. You might even begin to know how deep my love for you grows. Would…

The Path With You

When I think of you my pulse explodes. Now that I’m thinking it my fear erodes. Seashells crumble beneath under feet. Pain finds me not when I walk your beach. The path to you is so delicately laid by the hue shown down from a blue sky. Beams of light and splendid soft sights they…

Thrills Love Can Be

I want to try to bring others to intently sing this and that everything that passion careens. For the depths that rise passing from feet to eyes leave us wholly surprised; bringing to us love alive. Though love is but states of mind we tend to create when we drown self hate we need others…

Speaking Stares

Nothing can compare to word speaking stares that find us right where we’re caught unaware. I’ve seen a place my mind won’t erase. Emblazzened ways left from your face. You need not draw in words what I saw. I’m now enthralled by life under your law. I do such for me, so paper can set…

Rest For Our Souls

The world it does reveal and destroy; it has certainly changed this boy. When life conspires to take your joy flight or fight ways we must employ. I have stood to fight the good fight with all my strength, will and might. My preachers they were not right, fighting often is not quite so polite….

The Way We Loved

Travel did I once our road. Release did I my heavy load. Our story remains untold beyond what some suppose. A look speaks countless words in a language that gives birth to ideas others may find absurd. Ones between us that occurred. Such a bond is hard to break, we knew at the start the…

Serving To Pacify

Are you going to leave this open space in me? Now you make me see now what I can truly be. Educated I already am with knowing true bliss a myth. You supplied to pacify this. You did so with your kiss. If you drift away so sublime search in time I’ll try to find…

A Rapid Pulse

Your memory’s quite a companion. With time they’ve turned phantom. It is a treasonous thought I abandon those feelings I felt I won’t feel them. A decade passed since I was betrayed, emotionally I almost found a grave. My pulse runs rapid now I’m scathed. Thinking things where I was enslaved. I ponder whether I…

A Shelter Of Words

Placate me maybe today; maybe words could erase sadness that’s on my face. Faith I have in your ways. It is in your abilities, use your logic to see. Past the complexity you say I tend to be. The strife we’ll dispel by stories we do tell. We’ll say we are well. Casting our own…

Most Everyone’s Mad Here

Off with my head! As I spin in dread. From fantasies fed by the life I’ve led. All is but a dream. I watch stars gleam. By the tainted stream jaded I do scream. All but the planet lies. The hunger does drive things we do to survive and the truths we hide. In dreams…

3 Day Quote Challenge: Day 2, Pain According To C.S. Lewis

For a long time I have had a poem about hurt that I’ll share a little later this week. Hurt exists from the fact we are in touch with what true joy really is. The deeper we love the more pain we feel. The more in touch we are with our feelings the more honest…

Buried Within

I can’t remember when last I saw her. All I can say is my mind it offers. A place for her to dwell deep inside where pain with her thought does subside. Is it common to think so often that eyes are useless and the mind a coffin? It began and ends when my cheek…

Empathetic Aims

Shallow is the grave that bears a hollow soul. Whom shall lay to rest a heart that was unconsoled? Duty demands decency; that of the gentle kind. We are but chaff and dirt, salted with fickle minds. Hands craft art from clay, all from what’s perceived. We construct vessels that cut through raging seas. We…

Captain Clown

A light piercing a loud tumultuous storm. Home is gentleness, there memories are born. I sail upon sound my head facing down. I am a saddened clown an apparatus I found. For it is my duty, dressing and full of passion. A circus encircles so I’m loud in colorful fashion. Drown out the pain deep…

The Sound Of Time

Father Time reaches with his tightfist grip. Grabbing masses whole singing along his trip. His voice revealed are simple sounds. Birds singing softly flying amongst clouds. The circle, the cycle around and around we go. Some are luckily released, from vices as their thrones. I try and I’ll call loud out into the vast crowd….
