hi there oophie and company... what a delightful thread!!!
hmmm maybe a bit dismal for a first posting, but here goes...


i study the bitten nails on my fingers
as they stroke the nicotine coated windowpane
my half-picked-at dinner
stares in loneliness at the ceiling
with shaking hands, i pour another cup of coffee
while my mind plays out it's latest double feature
the silence is stinging
the phone's not ringing
i think i'm gonna puke
and i'm blaming it all on you.

I can feel my heart breaking in two
in case you didn't know its all because of you
You picked me up and threw me down
You made me feel like a clown
You left my heart to forever more burn
With nothing left but death to yearn
But as the years go by
with a broken wing I still can fly

My life is like a butterfly
Soaring wild and free
Why, oh tell me why
Must I run into a tree

Hellos to all!
This is a wonderful thread..
All me to introduce myself .. The name is Fleure :P
The following is but a work in progress ... It is far from finished And for this reason any input would be greatly appreciated ....
Hugs
Fleure

Lament
--------

I have been standing here forever,
With my soul beside me,
Unknown to the world.

Thunder rolls,
Lightning strikes.
I continue to stand
At the window -
Facing the sea
That took her from me.

Now
A droplet of pain
A droplet of time
A droplet of blood
Stain the dusty ground.

I used to fly to other worlds,
To fairy realms of colour,
Looking for her,
My lost little one -
He doesn’t know the difference.

I forgive him.
Oh my castles in the sky!
Always I have forgiven him -
He doesn’t know the difference.

Now
A river of pain
A river of time
A river of blood
Wash away the earth.

There was too much rain
And it went on for too long;
This sea of sorrow
Soon will overflow -
He won't know the difference.

Now
A flood of pain
A flood of time
A flood of blood
Fill the room

No peace,
And I am drowning.
I belong to the sea
Its waves are pulling me under -
He won't know the difference

The window is open
Wind strokes my hair.
One last look…and
My soul lifts
Its wings.

Free at last,
I soar above
I can see her
In the sea
Or is it my reflection...

I hear the panic,
Feel the worried touch,
His voice is calling me -
He knows the difference…now.
Too late:
That time has slipped away.

I fly into the sky,
My little one is calling me.
Finally, the rain has stopped.

Thank you oohpie and angelpurrrrs. Mmmmm, I love cheescake.


I Am What I Am


I am every man, I am no man.
We are one, yet not the same.
We all have dreams with different endings,
All have hopes with different names.

We all have needs and desires,
All feel sorrow and experience pains.
Yet we each diagnose these differently,
Uniquely tallying losses and gains.

Each with our own formula,
We judge how life treats us along the way.
A hope of mine, I will share with you,
That life treated you well today.

I am every man, I am no man.
"I am what I am", says Popeye the sailor man.



Peace.

Well, I wouldn't say I want to be a poet - don't you need some kind of talent for that? I just love to write whatever's on my mind or in my heart, whether it be letters, journal entries, or what sometimes turns into a poem of sorts!

One I wrote today at work...who says poetry doesn't pay?

I've known you such a long time
in lifetimes gone before?
Now I say goodbye again
and hope we meet once more...
Another time, somewhere else
the two of us just might
meet and fall in love again
and finally get things right...
I'll offer my heart once more
to do with what you will
another time, another life
you'll find me waiting, still.

Love reading everyone else's contributions!

Being compared to a friend you've liked enough to have around for 10 years, is quite the compliment. Thanks so much oohpie.

Here's a poem about the anti-war vs pro-war debate, with both sides claiming peace and freedom as their ultimate goal. But, they both have very different views on how to get there. The last line outs which side I'm on.


Definition of Precision


Why can't I see,
what the other sees?
Why don't I feel,
what the other feels?

Am I missing something?
Or is it them?
We want the same thing.
We wish the same end.

Why do we choose,
such different ways?
Did I miss a turn?
Or was it they?

Is one of us right?
One of us wrong?
Does one take flight?
Does one plod along?

Or, is there some way,
we both can fly?
Some other path,
we both could try?

Maybe we could,
just agree,
to travel seprate ways,
and disagree.

A moment of calm,
it may provide.
Can it be maintained,
if our paths collide?

Does war bring freedom?
Does peace allow suffering?
Can democracy be forced?
Can both find themselves oppressing?

Which is which?
Who is who?
What is what?
And, how to choose?

Is their some middle,
between differing poles?
Would either side be willing,
to pay the toll?

If we can't see where each other are,
can there be a comprimised position?
I can attempt to respect your beliefs.
But I'll never understand your definition of precision.


Peace

Straighten up and fly right
your wings will set you free
fly with all your might
but in George of the jungle's words...watch out for that.....................TREE

Hehehe, so there is nothing new
That was posted here,
But I thought I would drop off
Some of my poemish cheer
I am feeling light as a feather
As if my heart had wings
Because I know
What true love brings
I seemed to have found
Someone but not from here
But I will always be around
Sending everyone my cheer.



Mwahhhhhhhhhhhhhh!! love ya girlie

To my friends, can I call you that?
Maybe I am not sure of the meaning
It has become a blurred definition

Is a friend the person who stands by you
With less thought for themselves
Nothing that they want to take from you

When a friend is in your life
Do they not inspire you to better things
Bring you into the light that you can’t see

Is that the definition of a friend?
If that truly is then I have been mistaken
I have gone too far off course

I can no longer call you friends
Because your thoughts are not for me
But they are for what you think I can do

To my friends I have been a puppet
Nothing more than a damaged rag doll
Nothing special, nothing whole

I have only myself to blame, allowing poison in
Not allowing enough for eternal slumber
But enough to deaden the soul

So see, you are not my friends
And you will always find a way to take from me
But there isn’t anything left you see

Nice write dolly.

My BPD wife wanted to be my friend after we separated. I didn't want to, for many reasons.


My Friend?


Why didn't you want to be my friend,
when it really mattered?
Why did you wait until the end,
when my heart was beaten and battered.

I'm sorry, but you're no friend of mine.
Friends don't do what you've done to me.
I can't be your friend, now I've found a spine.
I can't be your friend, now I've found me.

The person I love doesn't really exist.
I'm not even sure she ever did.
She may not have been there, since first we kissed.
To you, my friendship, I must forbid.

I was there with a shoulder,
when you needed to cry.
I planned to be there when older,
now I just want goodbye.

You beat on my heart.
You beat on my brain.
Now I want to be apart.
I don't want anymore of your pain.

Please keep your life away from me,
don't force me to defend.
Please show me you have some sympathy,
and let me go, my "friend".

So this is post one hundred,
On this enjoyable thread.
Unless some beats me posting,
then ignore what I've just said.


Woooop.
