Poetry is the Pacific. Bubbling foam caressing my toes, At the edge of an outgoing tide. Wooden shutters painted cobalt blue, Adorning a nearby cottage. An aquatic symphony,
A moment, stuck in the breath of a lost memory. It's cold and will not breath the same again. A heart is frozen, wrapped in born sadness of lost words.
The pain, the sorrows, the noises, are all consuming me. Every where I look, there is something that reminds me of that experience and my existence.
Sometimes, I wish you could see me; have a video tape recording that you watched at the end of every day, that played out the events of my day to day life like a movie
Desires are a deep thirst Always there Water quenches Dreams are saltwater Appear to quench in the end only worsen Taking hopes Twisting them
There are canisters of film laying around my cluttered roomCovered in dust

The typical words of pain, hurt and shame are the emotions that are commonly phrased by every teenager's thoughts who are all the same. These feelings, thoughts that are jumbled up in my brain
Some say that pain is skin deep I beg to differ Pain has only one purpose To touch templates of tortured temples and conquer the space of bloodless hearts Since the departure, the world seem off its axis
I miss you in the little things In the way your spirit danced across the stage Always so eager to play a part away from the harsh reality of your life. In the way you refused to pick a side:
Using the fragments of decomposing cameras we laughed at the pictures from years gone away and faded they painted nice images

A Rose Amongst Antlers Born to a loving family in late May, The baby blossomed in laughter and play You’d notice he was edgy in spirit, but kind in heart
Can't decide between what's wrong or what's right Confused about what to do about everyone around me I have found true love from someone who cares Feeling trapped because of grief
Permanently etched into my mind, An arabesque portrait of once a perfect time. Like pen on paper, easily on over you glide.
When she's talking and jumbles her words; I can see, without seeing, that she blushes. That red. Like rose petals kissed her cheeks And don't dismiss my love sick twistedness
Today is the day we remember our people who lost their lives in the twin towers. The day that New York cried flaming tears… That caused more pain than they released.
In the dark sky No one hears her cry There's no one to call Her tears continue to fall Her broken heart Is a work of art
The red glow of the sun beat heavily on the barren sky. Cloud might have blocked it from view but the glow of its aura could be seen faintly in the sky, as heat manifested the air.
Shots are being fired, but it's all in my head The stabbing memory that nothing was said The screaming inside is getting so loud I'm just waiting for that final silence to kill of my rage, the dirt, the dark black cloud
Evey kiss is imprinted upon my lips I can still feel the heat of you Living on in the memory of a touch An unbelievable softness The velvet of you lips Covering a barley leashed passion

On January 13, 2012, it is the premature end of MY world as I know it. I’ve been trapped on this sinking ship for seven hours, But I’ll you my story about purgatory in a minute--
"You've drowned me, you know," I say, Looking back at the places, the people That I once knew, long ago, Under different stars, a different roof. For how is it, that when I dwell on
A decade is a long time; it could not be made up for the past time. Depression is walking through my mind, and it makes me go blind. My crying heart is not healed; it still suffers from its open sealed.
Sitting in the past, I see you wear a mask. Why can't you just be honest? I thought you were my goddess. What did I do you wrong? Was I not good enough? The world was against the two of us.

Eyes closed, At the top of the world, Cool summer breeze. The water like glass, Distant radio waves echo, Fish flop in a bucket on the pier.
Ten years old I didn't have a worry in the world Eight years later the world is weighing me down I didn't do this right. I could be doing better. I'm selfish. I yell and scream.
Emotional roller coaster takes you thru many emotions. Something is throwing you off and not being yourself. You seem right the one moment but then the next moment you're not fine.
Death can be a hard part of life It can be hard to lose someone you are close to Sometimes it happens all of a sudden Sometimes you know it’s coming to the person You just don’t know when
Memory let your montage play in the theater of my mind to an audience of one. Clips and pieces, images with sounds: they scatter on the screen as shape is taken and form is whole,
My heart has grown weary waiting for your return. I have grown restless over time. It has been years since I have seen your smile. If I listen carefully I can hear your voice.

Jovial land, idol full Plays a tune of great peace Content peers of free land Good old times ring the bell.
It's been about three weeks now, And I'm starting to feel better. Not waiting on you, Has helped pull me together. But I saw your picture today— Your smile, so heavenly— And I got lost in it.

I And I stand here as marble flesh. Inflecting upon the Ravens breadth. A quarrelsome memory of the two Beating the Winter’s silent dues, As the tears froze into crispy flakes,
Sitting by the water As ripples, ripples form; Stare at my bobber As it rocks, rocks back and forth
My sweet chocolate pie o my o my... So delicious its like you came from the sky. Your sweet heart touching layers o how much I love to try. Your taste never changes o sweet chocolate pie.
A blazon radiates from above Upon the barren, bleak cave Where reminiscent of lost love Reflects within mystic waves.
Some people say love doesnt exist Others say it is only found between a man and woman if thats true then whats this im feeling for a woman Butterflies in result to that sweet sound i call ur voice
I've seen those hands before In a different country far from here I've smelled that scent before But it's not like he's standing beside me Flashbacks through my senses
I hate when we're silent when we're quiet when we're shy when we hide our feelings and thoughts and act like we don't know each other Blowing the other off even for time even for a moment
Character is something that is fought for, not developed in a single day, not won in a single fight. Character is born when you place the persons of others above yourself in the realization of their importance.
Sit at the table, the booth that was only whimsy, fiction until this moment, smooth the java with single servings of nostalgia and laugh a laughter deep, nourish me for a lifetime.
Your eyes, green with flicks of brown. They swallowed me whole. They took my soul. They flipped my world world upside down.
It was early December when I first met him. He was a little timid at first, He hid under the seat until the lights went dim. He was as horrible as a curse. I loved him.
I am a strange stirring in the night, the way you feel when you’ve just awoken from a dream, the tension of your misplaced affection.
Sitting on a stained dock Amidst the four winds Is the figure of a woman. Have you seen her before? Her dark locks lifeless As her body sits frozen. Her white dress stained With red.
Chest thumping, pulse racing, thoughts chasing You Are Who Thoughts returning, pulse slowing, chest extending, Who You Are Just the being you choose to be, as justified in every constitution,
My hazy thoughts have done nothing to solve this riddle. Broken memories and strained eyes forgetting the details. If only I could slip back into what I once was. Simple life, joyful smiles,
Smears of rain on the glass Reflect my watery stare Tears slide off my cheeks And I think Where is the sun in this drudgery of rain Does it require surgery to cease the pain
I use to see your face On the face of the full Moon Salute the falling star Waiting for your message Or even a call to ease my pain
