  1. I desire love, joy, and peace. Will someone make that sacrifice? Oh, how desire can fade when attacked by clever heists. So then, am I willing to sacrifice? What is the price of this life? Earnings spent on short-term pleasures and empty feelings. No object, money, or vanity can bring desired healings. Please show me fulfilled desires that are sweet to the soul. Selfless love by filling a homeless bowl Money spent on an orphan's goal turning the cheek to lower the death toll and visiting the sick in a support role. What if love never faded away? Would I sacrifice my pay, my way, my day? Am I intimidated by a broken appearance or an appearance built on lies? Can I spread good seed whatever my ties, or do I despise the strong, educated, and driven? I wont withhold any longer the One dead and risen, who holds the keys to reward, peace, and the forgiven. This healing gift from an all consuming fire, accept His life. There's no finder's remorse in Jesus Christ sacrifice.
  2. If I Could Speak Freely

    In my head I wrote this in the style of open mic poetry night sort of thing. But this one will never be spoken by me. I wish I could though, even if I just heard it out loud. I don't know how to really BE with someone anymore. Something subtle starts to grip my mind and wipes it clean it's the quietest scream I've ever felt. He was supposed to love me... and he was suposed to care for me... and he was supposed to know the most about me... I made it through the first "You were too young" "It could have been so much worse" "The memories are such a blur" I can still remember his daffy duck impression though I made it through the second At least he didn't touch me shrugging off the memory I just stare forward in time like I did in that room I can still feel the heat of panic run down my neck though I broke on the third There was something different that time something unnerving about how I trusted him It shook me the way I made my voice heard My confidence soared, I was in control but I broke that time It was the quietest snap I ever heard It took me over a year to process that night one day it just hit me. The man I was with at that time just said "I was wondering when you would see it for what it really was". The woman who was supposed to love me just sighed she never did end up believing me The drinking at a peak I had no will to live struggling to win against the pessimism that had gripped me never safe never loved never heard I reached out. I caved in. I'm living now, but I feel like I'll never win. I'm better now, but this is the quietest war there's ever been.
  3. The Final Give & Take

    Can I open up to you? The can of worms sat undisturbed on the top shelf in your bedroom But can I speak with you? Words left undone I’m overrun Gold thread left un-spun What is there left to do? The spindle lays down useless; how could we get stronger through this? I deserve to know what the goddamn truth is Or what truth may be today- But tomorrow it may change The heart is clay (washed away) As you present your sins in chains to be slain Finally I state: “Don’t insult my intelligence- for I have felt more deeply than you ever have in your moments of weakness.” To that, what would you say? Clarity is the direct result of pain If I could I would sit down forever and watch you on replay Going away, slowing the day, dreams starting to fray Like you would give a fuck I must have been a tiny sliver of your life that you flushed down the pipe and refused to think of. I should give up- but damn. I guess that’s ok, I could give every piece of you away if only (if only) I didn’t Love Now begins the final verse of giving up, But I will sit on this stool and pour my soul into these six strings Write a song about destiny- the flame’s smoke hit my lungs on repeat Never felt more misunderstood-no clue how to handle such huge things The burden on my back is weighing me down relentlessly Single notes always lack when I’m drowning in this symphony But who cares? No, really- who gives a shit at all When we’re eye to eye in silence- waiting for the draw The trigger on your finger looks like it’s about to give A moment from the end of a life that has not yet been lived Stretch me ‘till the silence ends or until my bones begin to break Is this the theft of mortality- or the final “Give & Take?”
  4. The Icy Fall Of Summer

    Cold Blood races within constricted veins, Desp'rately seeking warmth in vain. Skin raises camouflaged shields, Swords raised Against Chilled air
  5. Trashy Tricks, Sweet Treats

    Happy Halloween: Is it trick or treat? Candy is reserved for those who are sweet. If your costume barely covers your rear, The trick is - you get no treats my dear. A trick or a treat? Depends what you wear, So rebellious teenage girls: Beware.
  6. Auburn Angel

    Her down to earth personality Becomes visible for all to see: Terrestrial angel bedecks the land, In auburn foliage garishly grand. Nature's canvass depicts flawlessly Her down to earth personality, That silently draws an owl - wise and old, To her side where she stands out in gold. Despite the dagger worn on her waist, The wise old bird has good judgment and taste. Her down to earth personality Evokes trust in all life, wild and free. The dagger she adorns on her cincture, Meant for their protection to be ensured, But their best defense from danger would be: Her down to earth personality. ------------------------------------------------------- Note: This was meant as an attempt at writing a Quatern (described below), however I forgot about the 8 syllable rule - and therefore failed. A Quatern is a sixteen line French form composed of four quatrains. It is similar to the Kyrielle and the Retourne. It has a refrain that is in a different place in each quatrain. The first line of stanza one is the second line of stanza two, third line of stanza three, and fouth line of stanza four. A quatern has eight syllables per line. It does not have to be iambic or follow a set rhyme scheme. line 1 line 2 line 3 line 4 line 5 line 6 (line 1) line 7 line 8 line 9 line 10 line 11 (line 1) line 12 line 13 line 14 line 15 line 16 (line 1)
  7. The Sky

    The sky is blue during the day, on bouncy clouds birdies play. Then the yellow sun turns white, and the blue sky turns black at night. Sometimes clouds get sad and cry, And their tears fall down from the sky. Note: Prompt was to write about the sky in a poem, in the eyes of a 7 year old you. This is pretty much how I figure I'd have regarded the sky when I was 7.
  8. I'm A Tree

    My youthful roots, firm, yet exposed, ground my slender trunk - concealed by taut bark, already defaced by humankind. My elongated, twiggy branches extend towards the heavens, not in surrender, but in a silent plea for healing tears from above. A cleansing shower of nourishment to my very essence, causing growth. Manifesting blossoms in my foliage, my inner beauty is exposed...
  9. Decayed Food For Thought

    Evil ghosts of my past... A bitter lemon, once ripe and delicious - Once, a big part of my life - has dried out and rotted: lost it's vibrancy. Lost their power over me. Angels of my past... A cupcake, once moist and comforting - Once, always there for me - has hardened, dehydrated: grown bacteria. have grown apart from me. I can see these... ancient artifacts, decaying with each passing day - ancient memories - to take a bite now, to dwell on them now, undoubtedly would make me sick. would be nothing short of foolish. Memories, however positive or negative, cannot be changed: To reside in the past is to contaminate one's present.
  10. Blind Feet

    Mindful curiousity causes my eyes to abandon the ground where my anxious feet narrowly avoid obstacles as they blindly follow eyes lead...
  11. Immitating Peace

    Nature's warm candlelight glows and reflects Off her beautiful gown of solid white, Illuminating her dark empty space, Resulting in peaceful short-term delight. Sitting thoughtfully beside my window, I try to mimic this inspiration. Dressed in white - with a candle in my hand, I recreate peace by imitation...
  12. Selfish Vs Selfless

    To forgive a cruel act is kindness - Or is the gesture really selfish? To let go of hurtful feelings for one's own serenity, and not for others' sakes. Yet if vocalized, that peace is spread, selflessly sharing joy.
  13. The Death Of Rainbows

    Pop! Bang! Sizzle! I startle at the noise That sounds like rice krispies - amped on steroids. Did a car backfire? A gun fight break out? What in the world could such noise be about? Once at the window, my eyes search the night Sizzle! Pop-Pop! I'm greeted by a sight: A man-made evening art show in the sky Red, white and blue for the fourth of July. Pop! Bang! Bang! I watch colors as they burst. Rainbows are destroyed - their remnants dispersed. I mourn their dying ashes as they fall, Camouflaged by the night, so dark and small. Sizzle! Bang! Pop! Another rainbow - gone The massacre will proceed until dawn.
  14. Wishing Upon A Moon

    The moon is spilling through the window pane Its tranquil beauty capturing my eyes Illuminating the navy blue skies Revealing silhouettes the world contains Moonlight and shadows spill across my face While an orchestra outside fills my ears Crickets' lullabies are heard loud and clear Their peaceful music filling empty space As the moon is spilling through the window I gaze upon its surface dimly lit Wond'ring if a loved one also sees it Such a thought sets my heart and smile aglow The moon is spilling through the window pane Inspiring hope that cannot be restrained
  15. Nature As Our Role Model

    diff'rent colors blend harmonious yet unique humankind - take note
  16. In A Perfect World

    Seven deadly sins won't exist To make the world a better place I'd wish away war - saving grace Seven deadly sins won't exist And illnesses would not be missed With perfect health being embraced Seven deadly sins won't exist To make the world a better place
  17. Romantic Scenes

    I'll paint you a scene - like street artists do While music plays on, romantic in tune Where expensive cuisine - like escargot Can be paired with beverages like Bordeaux Historic buildings are tourist hot spots Cameras trying to get the perfect shot On the Eiffel Tower, way up above Lonely, romantic singles vie for love In beautiful places filled with allure, Hopes are high in this city of amour Night beckons you to take an evening stroll Beautiful street lights enlighten your soul I caution you of one thing to beware: You may not want to leave once you are there.
  18. Bitter Heart

    You keep your jar locked - stored just out of reach, You're afraid the insides will be breached. But I can see what's in your jar - How lovely those contents are. Fragile feelings in need, Begging to be freed - Remove the seal, Let time heal Your tart Heart.
  19. My Mother's Smile

    I love how easy it becomes to smile Just hearing your voice across the miles The voice I used to ignore as a teen Now puts me at ease - makes me feel serene I love how your smile sends my heart soaring Leaping out of me without much warning Even throughout those rebellious years Your beautiful grin has eased many tears I love how your eyes light up like diamonds When your lips are curved - you look your finest Nothing in the world could ever compare To the way you smile, so precious and rare. I love how the years have only enhanced A smile so bright it could make the sun dance
  20. The Nature Of Poetry

    Roses are red - they're also blue, Rhyme or free verse, poetry's art - It's a shame to pick them apart. Roses are red - they're also blue, They're beautiful in any hue, Seen by the eyes, felt by the heart, Roses are red - they're also blue, Rhyme or free verse, poetry's art.
  21. Blown Away
