barrels of mashed potato gently flow downstream,
i have seen this for myself as i visited the queen,
She told me of a land where trees of elephants stand,
and of barbers scissors that lap at your feet
and as far as the eye sees there is no concrete
only rolls of beef like red turf

When poets saw my posts ..
they rubbed their eyes and ran out of prose

I travel on a road
cut through a vast sea of green
Not wantting to look back
but to terrified to look ahead
the place I leave
is always the place
I shall return
a bare face cliff
calling out to me
as the mountain cries
the tears I reluctantly let fall
floods of emotions
wash over me in a daze
I sit no one to cry out too
know one to hold my hand
tell me it will be ok
it hurts knowing
that I cant have your touch
cant have your strong arms embrace me
tell me its ok
if I could give anything
to have you here beside me
tell me its ok
anything to know longer bare
this heart ache that I feel
tell me it will be ok
there yopu go have fun with that

now if fragrance was currency i would be rich
i would carry water from a ditch
inside great pockets made of plastic and double stitched
the smell although bad would make me rich

id wander the ancient trails of silk traders and nomads
all the while smelling so bad
with water dripping from my pants
and bags of food ,mainly red ants

id make my fortune in smelly water
and provide mankind with a solution to famine
but my greatest gift would be
a real childhood for all with the possibility of a ball.

that is the best poem you ever wrote

then just because I have published 55 books
and written 4200 pages of bad poetry
only says I'm a professional screw up
I don't rite poems
I'm just the idiot taking dictation

today i met a woman who breathed life into dead things
all she used was the power of her mind
her creations were nearly as beautiful as she
for she looked like an angel to me

what does it take to be wanted
some people live their whole lives
never knowing what its like
to be cherished
to be needed
to be loved
to feel complete
some people would give anything
its something we all deserve
some would settle for three out of four
some would even sell their soul
as would i , just to be wanted

I love your words macefaitu and the emotion behind them.One of the coolest things about writing poetry is when its a subject matter that others can relate to....and say,"Hey....I know exactly how you feel"..Youve managed to do that and Id love to see more from you and everyone else whose posted so far:)Good job!Kat
