With the winter winds as a guide, I want your breath to swirl in my chest- I need your nicotine. Can't you hear my ribs chiming like chapel bells Each time your words form smoke rings

"Speak up!" They say, "You're too quiet."
You are the part of me that was always there but couldn't wake up until your gentle spirit rustled me awake. Suddenly, but smoothly,
To kiss you is to hear trumpets sound and feel the reverberation propel throuhg my skin as my soul rejoices in meeting its other half

I fear for the future and what it may become for I am lost in a time warp and fight to not succumb to fall into the pressures of what society wants me to see to trade in my morals and dignity...that's what they want me to be.

I’ve always been good at this. I can pull words out of my head the way kids pick flowers, not just breaking the stem but tearing them out of the earth – the root that had never seen sun all clumped

You're asleep in bed tonight, But still here awake in my mind. My heart is restless— Trying to keep up with my thoughts of you. I sit here, staring at the sky. I wish you could see it,

Caring about yourself is hard to do. Especially if you're used to caring for someone else too. There's going to come a time when you just need to worry about yourself. Even if other people cry for help.

Dear Survey, Should I be the blame of my own brokenhearted pains ? Is it my fault that I fell in like with the idea that I should be happy with my own beauty enough to share it with another ?

You got me hooked one day I least expected. It pained me first but quickly passed my mind. Your motives clear, to catch, I read the signs. Excitement made, reality neglected.
I Yell Because...
In a land far from home Where brave man dare not go I carry no fear, I want to know Gracious skies open my eyes Buried in the sand our lost dreams Wasted lives we realize the stream ends
Why not me. Look at them, they seem so happy Hand in Hand, drowning in the endless pools of each other's eye Oceans of euphoria, smiles real big like a child watching fireworks
Her singing is like an angels song addicting and lovable with every note She weaves me into her web of songs Keeping me with every change in note enchanting me till I know of nothing except that of her

Our body is just a shell That contains a soul Much larger than the skin And the bones That we are encased in The soul's size cannot be measured Because it stretches on forever
Inside the body There is where our enigma resides, Between our arms and our thighs, It thrives.
Beside the wood-framed doorways of Paradise lay what we have left behind, for our gatekeeper is ever vigilant, sorting soul from chaff, "You cannot take it with you." -
here we are all alone, each of us a dry, dead bone. NOTHING left to loVe or haTe a barren wasteland of empty fate
In my defense (You have none) I just needed someone to lean on (For a while, then be done) It’s not my fault you wanted more (Told you I wasn’t like her) And it’s been a year, yeah, I’m sure
Rain. Each drop of H20 hitting my face rejuvenating me Cleaning my soul Washing me of my sins Making me realize how I needed this Cold winds and rain Not sure what direction to go
it's just a necklace seven dollar find at Elysium Antiques a smoothed wooden dolphin charm, no bigger than baby fiddler crabs dangling from a swaying black piece of string.
Angry tears Arched across my zygoma Flowing with rage...It’s colorful I can't think... my mind eclipse by sublte animosity Through holes I've imprinted with malice
Hard, reliable, dependent on one another Relationships are like bones Stable yet unstable, fragile yet stern a structure that seems to never burn.
I am the breath of life in everyone If not for me there would be nothing new In present, past, and future I can run Under my protection is where earth grew
The World ending in Fire, or perhaps in Ice, Possibly Darkness, Maybe Light. The Fires of Passion. Glaciers of Hatred. The Fear of Darkness. Light of Acceptance.
Quiet settles on my lips and on my heart, Not even a sound the dropping pin brings, Push down and kicked down; Not even an echo off these strings.
Let us leave, you and I Sneak at midnight, when the only light that remains is moonlight Run from within the shadows Hand in hand escaping what strays behind our tracks
Late night thoughts, early morning stress I step out of the shower, but don't want to get dressed I don't want to walk in these shoes, how do they fit me? I like the ones that you wear, I cant help but to envy
I gave you all my trust. maybe it was love or was it just lust. You stole my heart without a doubt, and now I can't find a way out.
Concealed and dark is the Magistrate of Heaven As it winds down a relentless shimmering staircase On the Chariot, bound by a mound of Earth Racing toward a sufferer, heads faced toward death.
My heart my heart, my fickle heart Longs for the sun but lingers in dark And aims for my love, but misses the mark My heart my heart, my fickle heart
Lives intersect, Countlessly, Few ever connect For eternity, Or even for more, Than a moment, Before they are torn, And sent
Lack of beauty, abundance of lust, risky relationships she cannot trust. Runs from herself to hide from her spouse, looks mighty in theory, in reality mouse. Attempts to be home when in her own house,
I’ll dance to the music, That sings inconsolably sweet I’ll sway and step And try. I’ll dance to the music Because I have no words Only the need to dance these Steps
I’m from that delicious solitude. It looks crowded in the happiest times, and empty when sadness crawls.

It wasn't all fair With the stars in your hair And the smile That played on your lips. When you made me believe Here's my long lost dream Coming true.
The infinite death. The restless spirits, spirits separated by the sea. The price of the Earth is pride. Find the gift of love, the last one is vanishing. The soul is green. The Earth was once true and sweet.
A poet without a muse, Like a bird without a song. Just when I figured there was nothing left to lose, The words no longer where they belong. In the back of my mind Now reside the melodies so sweet,
Maybe I became what I said I never would, But maybe change is bound to those who only wish they could. And my life is spurred by the moments rooting from the past, Get whisked away and forget the time,
Lost ambitions Abandoned hopes and dreams, A feeling that no one believes, Questioned Faith, Borrowed time, A cold emptiness inside, Deep Bitterness, A whole that's bottomless, You feel alone,
Music is emotion, it soothes my soul. It feeds my dreams to reach my goal. If you're hungry and have no food, it does more than just affect your mood. Nothing else matters.
Something happened in my life and yours Something happened that no one ignores Something unusual and something strange Something only we exchange No words can say How happy and gay
Happiness is all I ever wanted But loving you is like a dying weed The actions that you portrayed assaulted The way you talk to me can only feed The hatred I once felt for you is gone In my search I have found somebody new Who handles me like a de

?One last question So now you got her Wrapped up tight in your arms Like a dog chasing a car now… IM there Feeling high as the sky But still one question unanswered Or is it many
Swallow it, follow it Taste it, then touch See and listen Smell and find Move, stop, feel then realize Realize there are more than just senses and emotions Souls are in us waiting to be known
Never loved anyone like this before, Nor met someone as marvelous as he, Sorry, he is someone you can’t go for, He has been happily taken by me. At first I was afeard to love again
There's a garden Grown by the Devil's reapers And they plant souls Of all earth's little creatures They'll give you the peace You wouldn't find in any preacher
I fell so hard when we met that day, And noticing you failed to feel the same. Forgive me for my heart is worn, And your's untamed.
Like many summer months in bloom, promising life, light, love When the sun would hug you in its warmth and caress your hopes with gentle rays of bright light and subtle praise
It comes upon me like a storm. A torrent of emotion In motion. A certain fear I have. The fear of ending. Not breathing, Not blinking, Not being.
Someday you'll love me, Someday you'll care, Someday you'll treasure the moments we've shared. Someday you'll learn, Love is not a game, Then you'll realize, I'm not the same.
I realized today that I don’t love you. It’s kinda sad to say, but I know it’s true. I ran away from this, because you’re the one who. Saved me.
Love is us Sometimes i think words have difference definitions because love is you. When i look in your eyes its like im on vacation sitting by the pool like your eyes are blue.
Times a wasting and I'm running out of patience then again more like out of time. The clock tells the story and lipstick on the glass still there so you remain on mind.
I’m writing this poem because I thought of you Sometimes I don’t know what to do All I ever do, is think about you Somewhere deep inside my heart You always know how to make it start I know we may be miles apart
You know i can't live without you I know this can be a clue I will do anything for you My heart is in your hand I hope that will forever stand You’re someone special to me Like it was meant to be
The night sings its lullaby as the dreamer falls asleep. She dreams of a sweet surprise, faster her heart seems to beat She wakes up to the glowing stars that are painted across the sky;
She's standing there, all alone... She doesn't know where to go. Can you hear her crying? Can't you see the way she's dying!? He was lying, she was trying, but all that happened was this fighting!
Your short, im tall Your hearts big, mines small You make me laugh, sometimes im cry You like to smoke, so we get high I tell you things, you always listen Were almost their but somethings missin
I noticer her in my dreams, I find her in my mind, Only true beauty I see with my own two eyes. Love is the key, The key to my destiny, providing the beat to our everlasting eternity.
I watched the flames lick the ivory walls, Of my house, Of my home. Now I trod on sodden ground, Like a sponge under my feet. I pick up the pieces, Charred memories. A single tear leaks from my soul.
It's the 'what if' that creates curiosity… It's the 'what if' that pulls you in… It's the 'what if' that stops you… It's the 'what if' that penetrates every lasting thought in your mind…
I want to be lain in the skies above… Endlessly floating into oblivion beside a million dying stars. I long to be cradled by the billowing mists and blanketed by the sun’s rays… Kissing and marking my bare shoulders
(poems go here) When I was young I gave my soul to the sea. Sometimes I will swear to you that the waves ebb and tide where my blood should be.
That one place The very center of my heart, My very being, My soul. It has led me to New Adventures. New Friends. Lessons Learned and forgotten. And music. Music
The malice human Injects hatred, and My body full of strength; The heart blessed with patience, Conjoin the pace.
Yet you are my dew in the petal of eternity You’ve got few strings of mine With their painted threads You’ve set up the net In your loom For the tapestry of your last gammon
I Am The Waves In The Ocean And The Roots Of The Trees. I am wind and thunder and rain. I am the image of my father, Kemet. I am soil and breath and soul. I am Africa personified. In the way I walk

She was only fourteen or fifteen when she Lost her virginity to a Soul-sucking heathen who she refused NOT to believe in. And, she thought she wasn't worthy, Deserved to be deserted,
Bump and bop and knock then stop. It’s a rhythmic beat to reap the sleep and see what’s been shown, not meet what’s been known over and over again, just changing how it flows from pen to pen or mind to mind.
Eyes, pools of liquid splendor, orbs of silent intensity, flitting here, flitting there, resting in sunken sockets and greedily consuming each ray of light. You hide your power behind leaden lids
People love to tell you that “You are the captain of your own soul!” What they neglect to tell you Is that they are at the helm And should you hit an iceberg It is you who must go down with the ship.
In a deep dark forest, there is a caravan of traveling strangers Hosting a creepy carnival, with many possible dangers
The Devil asked for my assistance He asked for my soul I gladly said yes When He scanned my soul He told me no
