With YouWith You
separated by distance,
a bond that makes the miles feel like centimeters,
i want to be with you,
to feel the warmth of your embrace,
the soft touch of your lips upon my own,
i must wait,
i'll wait forever if i have too,
I know you'll be worth it,
I am always with you,
My LoveI have missed you.
You were the only thing that kept me sane
And allowed me to express my true self
Without fear of judgment by ignorance.
You are the only one who I can talk to
About my problems
And my insecurities.
You are willing to listen to all that;
Letting my rant spill onto you.
I am happy we are together again,
I know I will need your help now more than ever.
I want to change who I am for the better,
So I can love myself
So I can love others.
PeacefulI need to find my secret place
A place for me to rest my head
As all the tears run down my face
And as my heart ceases to race
I can’t understand and I don’t know
How I can be so calm and content
This couldn’t be, it isn’t so
I feel myself slowly letting go
I tried to hold on with all my might
But it’s too hard, I’m getting weak
It’s been so long and I’ve held on so tight
But I know it’s time, I’ll lose this fight
I feel my mind becoming clear
As all my thoughts fade to one
to darkness and death, my only fear
it’s way too close, it’s way too near
I rest my eyes, can&
Last ChanceI love you,
More than you know.
But your love for me,
Is only a show.
I’ll never understand,
What keeps me coming back.
Though you’re good with words,
You’re completely void of tact.
It must mean something,
That I still want you.
No matter what happens,
No matter what you do.
I think about you constantly,
I dream of you at night.
I’m ashamed of the images,
My mind conjures even in the light.
I’ve never said the words,
But you should know how I feel.
Do I actually need to say it,
For you to know it’s real?
Do you love me?
As I do you?
Are we both just too stubborn,
To say what is true?
I guess it&rsquo
Silent LoveI see through the windows of your soul
And although the silence has never been broken
And the words have never been spoken
Your eyes tell me all.
I never did feel as comfortable as I did with you
I know you felt good, too.
I won't forget your eyes open wide
To the beauty of a sunset tide.
When I needed you, you were always by my side
In the dark you were my guide
The best friend I could have,
You always had me in awe.
But your eyes, they warned me that friendship is all you could give,
I never thought you wouldn't forgive.
Now I spill my sorrow in room of black
But that won't bring you back.
The silence has been broken
And the words have
It swallows you whole,
Exceeds your control.
Apprehends your soul,
Until it has taken its toll.
It’s an overwhelming feeling.
That is made to be appealing
And you can’t help revealing,
The doubts you are concealing.
It’s an undefined dimple
And a well known jingle.
But only when you are single
Does it all seem so simple.
It is one of life’s many gifts,
That empowers and uplifts
And can lead you adrift.
Should you miss your shift.
It is impossible to describe it.
It is impossible to fight it.
Because once it is ignited
And once you have tried it.
It will take your independence.
You will become used to it
He knows my nameHe knows my name
He knows my heart
He knows my every thought
He knows my every tear
He greets me in the mornings
and says “I love you” at night
He takes my dreams
and gives them wings
He hears my prayers
and makes them real
They may not always be
the answer I wanted
But he answers at His
He knows my worries
my every crash and burn
He knows my name
he knows my heart
He never waves goodbye
because He never leaves
He calls me His lamb
I call Him my shepherd
He holds ever tear that falls
He knows my name.
Beautiful ContrastThe contrast between coffee cups and raindrops.
Her red lipstick smeared, and chipped fingernails.
Imperfection is her fashion statement, and she wears it well.
The contrast between torn photographs, and a vintage floral skirt.
A twenty dollar bill, and cherry pie.
Her wallet's broke, bank account closed, but she's not cheap,
she tips more than just dimes, always being that kind.
The contrast between foggy skies and the look in her eyes.
Adventures, and dreaming. She doesn't waste time with sleeping.
The contrast between cigarettes, and white chocolate chips.
Mystery, and magic. She is a storybook written upside down in purple ink.
Ode to SatanNew Dimensions Literature Vol. II
In memoriam to John Milton's Paradise Lost
'Wherever there dwells light, therein must be darkness'
Whom the Puritans called Tempter
Whom the Hebrews hailed as light bearer
Hero of the Paradise Lost
Orator and mover of the Unlike
Thy word is truth
Whether there is a God or nay
He was an overbearing tyrant
Thou art a symbol to our freedom
Mind of darkness?
If thou bearest light
How canst thou be darkness?
Black books herald thee
Bringer of Iron Age marvels
The scabbard, the blade
Scripture speaks of the free will
That our creator stood by
To behold our ritualized slaughter
In his name(?)
Ah, heaven may have irony, if it hath not wit
Thou seek'st to be lord of this world
Look about thee
Behold our collective destiny
Thou art indeed our lord, not him
We be most like thee
Nonsensical LyricsWordy, complicated
Symbols without meaning.
Unnecessary dialogue in
A story with no reason.
Bending written rules in
The name of poetic license;
Rhyming for a rhyme
In a time that makes no sense.
Teacher says, "Roses are red."
But I bleed blood scarlet;
Anon says, "Violets are blue."
And I bet you do, too -
Only have to look so far to find it.
1-1-6-6In due time
The greenest leaves
Will all begin to brown
And tumble gently to the ground
In every being's life
Everything begins to fade
As they're covered by the shade
Of what destiny begins
As one curtain is drawn closed
A sliver of light shines through
That foreshadows what is next in line
And destiny prepares itself for yet another time
I hear them calling me home.Do you remember
lazing about in grassy fields?
There were waves of lushness
as far as your feeble eyes could see.
Do you find yourself
missing my tender touches on your sweet skin?
You would let me linger there
as your cares dripped from your pores
with each of my purposed kisses.
As you reminisce
beneath the golden warmth
of a loving summer sun,
does my scent sneak inside your soul
and color your ivory flesh with sadness?
Tell me, sister,
you recall the delicate splashes of blue
in your hair.
Please, forget me not.
What I'm Not SayingLook in the mirror.
What do you see?
Surely that cannot be me!
For that girl looking back at me,
So sad and forlorn,
Is not how I’m meant to be!
I live in denial,
Pretending to be happy,
Pretending everything is alright.
Because to admit this love is a failure,
Would be to admit that I made a mistake;
And I cannot bear to hear “I told you it wouldn’t work”;
When all he does is work.
And as I check my messages for the hundredth time,
I cannot bear you not being mine.
So I will live miserably,
Just as long as you stay with me;
Because I can’t stand to lose you.
So I will take whatever I can get.
I AmI am the truth, covered in lies.
I am trust, in a world filled with deceit.
I am true love, in a world filled with lust.
I am the lost pet on an empty street.
I am the star,trying hard to shine and be seen in a night sky filled with city light.
I am a favorite song, but played so low its hard to hear.
I am the whisper, in a world of screams.
I am the lost being forced to lead.
Moving in."Welcome," says the door mat, but I know better.
"Welcome," says your smile,
but I can still taste the sadness in between your kisses
can still feel the tug of loneliness on your lips,
can still hear the faint cry of desperation in every
"I love you"
that begs me to stay.
I promise, I will stay.
You left all your doors open, darling,
but you kept your windows barred and shuttered -
and I'm wondering, why?
Why do you let anyone walk straight into you
and take what they want
but keep the world from seeing your soul?
Why were you built and broken upon contradictions
so confusing, so crude?
But I say nothing.
I shut the doors
ReflectionMist fades from the mirror,
A stranger stares back at me
With eyes cold and haggard.
With a mouth arched downward, he mocks me
"Why have I gone away?"
This mirror held a younger image
a time ago;
An innocence preserved
In the smudges on the glass.
It is hard to say that this reflection, is me.
UntrueOur love has become a long, pallid interstice,
An extra audacious lie.
We were rhythms of elusively canonized hope-
Hope, of the future.
You and I both fell sharply
To its wicked incantations,
Excited by those obtuse visions;
Now they are but paltry.
Our few words
Are now manifolds of acerbity.
Yes, the kisses and the hugs were savory;
Just pulling of puppet strings, controlled by hormones
Our paths have split at the fork
Separating this feigned love-
This lust obscured, haggard love.
I bid you farewell with a wind carried kiss.
Happy peanuts traverse
Across rich, chocolate covered mountaintops
And golden waterfalls of caramel.
Within a crunchy nougat meadow
There is a maiden of savory satisfaction
That awaits the smiling kiss of the world.
