Sweet Rose

"Man, are you high?" Yes! High off life, off life and off love. Off love, in love, for Mine mind's eye Doth not lie Mine heart's sight Doth see right, Yet how can this I say to you, For I knoweth not how to woo?


Brats

Unapreciative little brats, We were, Lying on the couch, Yelling. Screaming, "Food!" "Juice!" and "Done!" And Him The divorced father, Running. Running To and Fro, Unmindful of what he was doing. Doing to himself, and us


Fall Back

Another hour gained tonight Another hour gained to write Time within which to contemplate Why does this clock my life arbitrate?


Thought

Nothing is more blinding at night Than a fluorescent light Nothing makes it harder to hear Than a noise in one's ear Nothing makes it hader to think Than thought


Burning the Script

Why must I play this game, Which society imposes on me? With rules so excruciatingly lame, I must, I must break free! I defy the blah-ish norm! For I'm no actor bound to script. I exit stage, I'll not perform, But I'll have her lest mine heart be ript.


Searching

Searching for something to seek Mine mind doth grow weak For it yearns to go on But my heart won't come along Searching for something to seek


Time Stops

Focused on the future The present blows by A scent on the breeze A cloud in the sky. Goodness and evil Darkness and light What to me is sacred Wrongness or right? Spiraling onwards Upwards and down How long will it be 'Till I hit the ground? Chronos' hourglass Sand sifting away Heralding The end of my stay Time stops She smiles Salvaged soul


Constellations

No longer are the stars Just random beads of light That shine ever so bright In moonless skies at night. The figures of the firmament: She has opened that ancient door Built by shepherds in days of yore How could I not have seen before Last night I saw a shooting star And wondered who else but I Followed its path across the sky And made a wish as it did fly?


We Stepped Off A Cliff Last Night

She led me blindly to the ledge, And I fell from the height. She reached over the edge, And grasped my hand with all her might. She pulled me up, gave me a kiss And said she would teach me to fly, Then pushed me back into the dark abyss, Plummeting down I cried, "Why, why, why, why?" Seeing her grave mistake And knowing that my heart would surely break She leapt into the sky, Caught me, and now together we two fly. I cannot beleive she let me fall! This time making no move at all, To rescue me from deadly harm, But as they say, 3rd time's the charm: A gust of wind blew strong and warm, And on that breeze his heart Flew away with her soul.


Seeking

Seeking to find the highest height, I sight A shooting star and wish to soar, before Burning blood has boiled over, fever Intoxicating desire, fire Whispering frantically in mine ear, yet fear Restrains mine actions, holds them in, within Myself and soul I seek feeling, starting Again re-learning how to fly, just die I thought upon hitting hard ground, but found Myself standing on eager feet, to meet Someone new I certainly will, to fill An empty void she's left and gone, alone I shall not remain In pain Again.


Prom Poem

She soothed My mind Singing soft Words which Spun sweet Starry circles Forming forever Melodic memories


Sensation

Devour with eyes, gaze with fingers caress with lips so sweet so stunning so soft


Serendipitous Summer

Swoon so sweet Sunny summer Sky symphony Relax release Relenquish Rigidity Live lazy Let life lead Fate finds fortune


60mph

Driving home a mile-a-minute tear trickled down and got caught in my beard suspending forever the memory of that sad day we each went our own way


Living

Let go lean back Let fate keep track Release from fear Re-learn to hear My pain is gone My faith grows strong I will survive I feel alive


As Sensation Returns -or- Ode to Oral Surgery Gone Wrong

Tingle tingle tingle... I won't stay numb I've felt before The feeling will come It's returning now First comes the pain I'll bear it somehow Ever so tender O so sensitive A re-born member Now this is what I miss It's coming back now That bitter sweet bliss Tingle tingle tingle... Now I live with the mere memory Of what it's like to not feel, yet still be


Roller Girl

Goddess of the movie Though I am not worthy I looked into your eyes Saw life devoid of lies And asked myself today If there could be a way For lowly me to say Iím infatuated Yet content unsated


Four

Sweet ignorance and bliss walk hand in hand And though I do hold truth to be most grand It would have been nice to not understand, To fail to logically make foul four Where two and two lived peacefully before.


Candle

The candleís fading flame Still illuminates her face, Though it is half-drowned In its own wax.


Lost

What should I do? What should I say? I will get over you someday...


Why

For who do you do the things you do? Do you do the things you do for you? Or do you do the things you do to rue?


Bitter Prayer

To have cavorted with carnality, Thus dissolving divine purity. Lust was my sin and her dear virtue pride, Behind a pious mask she'd hide. With my life she fucking toyed, Leaving an insatiable void. The only peace that will be found Is six feet under hallowed ground, And if I die before I wake, I pray the Devil my soul to take, But if tomorrow I do arise, I'll scream my angst unto the skies And bid that god bring my demise Leaving this world of truthless lies To those of greater faith than I's


Future

The future, most uncertain what hides behind the curtain of time? Nothing but pain for hopelessness rules again.


Through Thick & Thin

Through thick and thin Thought rules again Though love is far A distant star I trust in fate So here I wait These words are lies All rot and flies For fate lacks proof Rings not of truth So how can we Find faith to see The way to go, I do not know Through thick and thin Begin again
