You see such a stalwart and noble guy, He’s kind he’s sweet and he doesn’t have to try, He’s fantastic, and though you may disagree, He’s truly the best guy you’ll ever see. Except for the fact that your mind, Has tricked you into thinking he’s quite the find, For in your individual perception, You’ve experienced life’s ultimate deception. ...
High upon a dusty shelf, In a rarely perused curio shop, Sits a stand, Containing the last dragon egg. The egg sold as a novelty one day, As a plaything to a group of infants, Which was slammed and battered around, Until the children grew bored of it, And tossed it to the bottom of the toy chest, Not knowing the dragon inside witnessed it all. It was sold in a yard sale one day, And sold off for...
I wish to explain, Everything about myself to someone, And not have them look at me, Like I’m some sort of abomination, And have them understand me, And appreciate me for it. I know, A bit of a pipe dream, Isn’t it?
Drifting about in that black void, Searching through that murky ink, For these tiny pinpoints of hope, Stars are what I seek. These stars are beacons of hope, That guide me to my desire, Though we’ve all countless directions to choose, We all pick one fleck of fire, And when floating in that dark void you see, The stars are just so far away, And they never seem to come closer,...
I find myself a conduit, Which I channel the wind, For having my mind and soul in the very air, Is something one would never want to rescind. Windswept mind and gale carried heard, Tethered to an unimportant body, But the tether is only a kite string, For the air is mental, and forever free. My mind and soul as vast as the air, And safeguarded by the cloud, Waiting for a strong gale to pierce...
Dancing With Gales
Could you ever dance upon the gales, While squalls bring bliss to your very soul? Could you ever hope to read the clouds, And to view your life’s written role? Did you ever see yourself loving one, Who who could alter your fate penned? Because all these things can happen, When you fall in love with the very wind.
Shivers and Light
In a foggy and dank state of mind, I set out into a cold world for something to find, Thinking I’d been abandoned, I returned to roost, At that solitary perch that hang like a noose, And shivered while the bells sang, And shade slipped over me with nary a pang. But my quaking body shook my head, And an idea soon pierced my mind so dead, I lifted off that tight cowl and turned the...
Patience Is A Virtue
I’ve been told by a sage, That when my life is half over, I’ll have the love and admiration I desire, And I just have to wait, And be patient until then, After all, patience is a virtue. But I’ve waited all my life, And I’m not sure if I can any longer, Patience is a virtue, I’m slowly losing my virtue, And I don’t know what I’ll do when it’s gone.
One Of A Kind
Aged and weary, And among those who wear green horns, With saddlebags strapped to my back, It’s a struggle to move at all, But I’ll smile gladly, And let you toss another bag on me. Though I have stepped on the nails of life, Those that pierce so deep, That the shock makes me tremble, I still trudge on with bleeding feet, And as the weight upon me breaks my back, I still smile and...
Heart For Sale
Heart For Sale, Will take any offer, Not a rip off at all, I’m just fed up with it. Heart For Sale, Had some damage, But still in working condition, I’ve just no use for it. Heart For Sale, A little overactive, But it means well, Damn thing has been nothing but trouble for me. Heart For Sale, It still works, But it’s not worth the trouble for me, All offers accepted.
Follow The Day
Night, and Day, You’ve got to find a way, To walk, down these paths, And make some choice. Light, and Shade, Can both light your way, But can you really find, The way, when you’re night-blind? Just follow the day, Follow the day and reach for the light. Shadows cast, You think you can’t last, You’re not made of stone, You can’t go on this long. But don’t...
Grow Up Pretty Little Thing
Grow up pretty little thing, Don’t keep chasing leaves, That run away on the river’s current. Turn around and consider chasing, Those gales that were blowing at your back, I promise, you won’t have to run far. And you’ll be home.
The End of... Something
Our river slowly began running dry, I was the only one who questioned why, But what we had… I don’t know what to call it, But it’s over now. Friends? That’s a possible term, Though our relationship wasn’t that firm, We were somewhat close, But never physically, And it’s over now. You helped me through so many times, And inspired me of so many of my rhymes, I...
God For A Day
(This wont be a well received post, but I still like it.) I entered a small contest, One to be God for a day, My odds were slim to none, But I thought, “what they hey?” Imagine my surprise when weeks later, I received word saying I had won, The package said it would take effect, At the rising of tomorrow’s sun. When the sun rose, I didn’t feel anything, But then I had a...
Never give up hope, No matter how much you want to, Always remain hopeful, No matter the weight or pressure. Because, if you keep resilient, No matter how hard it may be, Things will eventually turn around, Just keep strong, And believe you can do it, And you will prevail.
Floating and Flying
Some people manage to fly, They’re uplifted by something, Which gives them wings, On which they can truly live. But I can barely float, Upon the surface, Of that dark, consuming tide below, Which the winged rarely see. I’ve managed it for so long, But I don’t know if I can much longer, I’ve become so waterlogged, That floating has become a strained effort. Soon...
It’s really not that difficult, To try and seduce me, Just keep being as amazing as you normally are, And I will soon follow. Because, You really are amazing, Even if you don’t know it, And that is the greatest turn on of all.
What Drives Me?
We all have something, Something that drives us to go one, Some small thing, That pushes our every footstep forward. For some, it’s faith, That things will all turn out right, For some it’s justice, And that all wrongs must be right, And some, it’s simply friends, Those people that pull you along. But, I know not what drives me, I have no clue what pushes me forward. I suppose...
Sunlight Through Storm Clouds
Take a look at the storm clouds, How dark and turbulent they are, Raging, shadowy, and destructive, To their surroundings, and themselves. But look again and realize, That they are not complete shadows, And that some light must break through, And give some hope that the storm will break. And I wish for nothing else, Than to be that kind of sunlight, To someone.
When It Rains, It Pours
When it rains, it pours, And when you find yourself happy with someone, You’ll find a flock of people, All around you all the time. Would it be so much to ask, For at least a drizzle?
Why Should I Despair?
Why should I despair, When that sunlight is in the air? What is so great, About living with my self hate? Sure, sometimes times may be tough, And that’s when my mind gets rough, All that pressure and pain on my mind, Makes clarity and happiness so hard to find. But never give up before the dawn, Because hope is never gone, Just soldier on, though it may be hard, Sooner or later,...
The Infinite Problems of Infinity
Infinity is surrounding me, Nothingness encompases me, Yin and Yang, but that can’t be, I’ve got no inner harmony.
Call every affair and fancy I have, A list of foregone conclusions, That’s all they ever turn out to be, When all hope is just delusion. Call every wandering thought I have, A collection of pipe dreams, The thought my succeeding, Is quite laughable it seems. Call every want I’ve ever held, A flight of pure fantasy, Tolken couldn’t write it any better, That which I...
The Tragic Fate of the "Nice Guy"
That old saying is true, “Nice guys finish last.” For we have the best intentions, No good intentions are really returned. We’ll give up what we want, To make it easy for you, We’ll sacrifice what makes us happy, Just to pay you the smallest kindness. Why? Because that’s how we are, We hate to cause anyone pain. We genuinely enjoy making things better, We...
Haiku of Why I Won't Have a Relationship Any Time...
I am not taken, Nor am I a total ass, Thus, I am quite screwed.
Sleep Deprived Poetry
*Note: Because of a rather crazy turn of events, I spent my day operating on about four hours of sleep. When I’m that tired, my cognitive processes become… interesting to say the least. After taking a long nap, I found this in my drafts folder.” Someone’s in the kitchen with Dina, Someone’s in the kitchen I know, And I’m not going do a thing about it, Because...
Single Line Poetry #2
A lack of proper words can kill a good man.
Mildly melancholic energy, Radiates through my mind, I don’t really want it there, It’s quite the annoying kind. Mildly melancholic music, Is playing all through my day, Giving me a different view of the world, One that’s rainy and grey. This mildly melancholic mood, Is the bane of my turbulent mind, I’d give anything for lasting sunlight, But that’s nearly...
I’ve done what I’ve wanted to do for so long, I’ve made it into a group of friends, They’re a lovely lot to hang around with, And I genuinely enjoy every moment with them. Next on my list: A relationship. But with my unfortunate past, I have no clue what to do, So even though I want it so badly, My mind is left thinking, “Alright, so what do we do then?” And I...
Ireland and the World
France has a thing, For that strapping Russian nation, Both England and America, Are after that German sensation. Denmark wants a pact, For better English relations, And Germany is isolationist, Because things fell apart with another nation. Meanwhile Ireland is there, Relatively unnoticed, Twiddling it’s thumbs, Wishing it had something worth trade.
Cigarettes and Whiskey
I smoke cigarettes when my emotional pain, Is so great that it turns physical. I drink whiskey when my mind weighs so much, It puts a strain on my neck. I don’t do these things, For some sort of temporary pain relief, And because when I’m in that state of mind, I remember that these things slowly kill you. And with every slow drag, And every shuddering sip, I think it to be an hour...
That is all for my Day of Lost Love...
I thank you all for reading my tale of love and woe… here’s hoping things pick up from here on out.
Day of Lost Love: Marykate
Lastly, there was Marykate, With all the words in my heart and soul, I couldn’t even begin to describe her. She was truly one of a kind, And deep within her heart, Beat the very essence that is Life. I was convinced I was not enough for her, But still, I had to try and do something. But she was too busy living to be bothered, With the prospect of my advances, And I hoped that one day,...
Day of Lost Love: Kalah
Kalah, was the one most like me, An actress and songstress of the highest caliber, One that had completely ensnared me, With her siren song, One so sad and sweet, It could bring great happiness and sorrow to anyone. She was much sought after, By most every one who had saw her, She still thought nothing of herself though, Maybe that’s the only way I could get to know her, But I made my way...
Day of Lost Love: Taylor
Taylor was like a volcanic spring, With the heat and passion of flame, And that flowing compassion of water, She had been irreparably damaged by life, like me, And I thought that together, we could repair each other. Let cowardice be my name, For though I felt so deeply for her, I had to stand aside, and make room for her boyfriend, The one that made her feel so terribly, Again, I had to play a...
Day of Lost Love: Emily
Emily was a living flame, A fire haired firebrand, Who appreciated the little things, An unconventional beauty, Who could bring out others beauty. I met her in a theater class, Where we learned all about the art of the stage, But Emily and I soon began discussing, About that stage known as life, And the more we discovered about life, I discovered something great in her. But Emily’s...
Day of Lost Love: Hayley
The next love was a little unexpected, But was still love nonetheless, I had formed a friendship with Hayley, It was purely coincidence, but a happy one, She was beautiful, fun, but yet so tortured, And she was so afraid that she was numb inside, I thought I could help her feel. Hayley wasn’t the smartest girl I’ve encountered, But I was constantly happy to help her out, In fact, I’m the reason...
Day of Lost Love: Amanda
My love for Amanda came from a chance reuniting, As we had formerly been friends, And we had reconnected well. She had changed so much in that absence, She had become so much more beautiful, Different from the typical lot, And just being near her could make one happy. At the time, Amanda was with someone else, An annoying little pigeon named James, And though at times she professed she was happy,...
Day of Lost Love: Andrea
Andrea was a kind girl, I don’t think she could have hurt a fly, She was as warm as spring, With the passion of summer, She caught my eye by chance, And we immediately formed a friendship, But I could already tell I wanted more. Over the weeks, we talked more and more, It was our thing, and I quite loved it, But my parents did not like this girl that had stole my heart, And without ever...
Day of Lost Love: Samantha
The first love I can recall in my life, Was Samantha. She stood out so much from the trite, And we connected on so many levels, Or so I thought. I thought her to be so perfect, That I thought myself to be unworthy, So I was content to just be her friend, Waiting, and hoping for some opportunity. During the holidays I loved giving gifts and spreading love, And to Samantha, that was no exception,...
The Day Of Lost Love
For the past few days, I’ve been working on this really sad piece about love, one that got quite long. In it, I describe in detail every girl I have ever fallen in love with, and how things eventually lead to my heartbreak. The piece grew longer and longer, far too long for a single one. That’s when I received a fairly brilliant idea. I officially proclaim tomorrow the Day of Lost...
