for one moment of peace
I'd travel across the sands of time
burning, boiling deserts
no matter
I'd do it barefoot and lie with the foxes during midday

If climbing through a dense underbrush
to a spring
that leads to a creek
where a bright pink
salamander lay
and i had to swallow it whole
just to feel this peace
I'd consume that fcuking lizard as if it were a salty date dripped in honey
smiling the whole damn time

Peace will come after I've sweat out
this utter anger, pride
discontent nature
of feeling things
when I'm afraid
to remember how to breathe
and I lie about Havana brown ants desperately climbing to a perch in some heated, rotting portion of a log
fascinated with the natural cycle
of everything around me
and oblivious to the patterns I repeat...

and oblivious to the patterns
I repeat and repeat
Oblivious to the fear
that stops my feet and stops my feet


If you were here now
What would you say
But wait, that too is fear… that alone
I cannot find my way

I cannot find my way
there are no words to relay
this pain
you've done it
I've done it
to myself
but we are both guilty... and well,

I wouldn't say a thing
I'll never speak to you again
nor will I worry over the fact
that it's not happening

abuse is not my style
may have been a dumb child
but oh, watch this **** grow...
(thanks, ya know?)

thanks you know, for all
still it must be, and we have fallen
as Carol King says it's too late baby
let someone else try and save thee
forever giving up the plea
stop begging on bennded knee
for tomorrow we'll let things be
no more happiness for you and me

oh thats right wasn't happiness at all
just me at your beck and call
well serendipity has it place
just turned out not in or space

just turned out not in our space
just happened to be not in our time
The golden age was not in my life
I just caught the curve before it touched down

What could have been but never was
we could have had it with half a chance
much too we climbed the stair
and got to the top and found nobody there

nuthin about it
say nuthin about
no nuthin about it
nuthin at all

Nothing at all
you stupid beast
I laid my heart down for thee
is this not worth something
must you live in the consumption
of my sanity
just let it be

Or would letting it be
admit I was right
I really don't care
too much of a fight

Just know that I love you
no matter whatyou may drive
I really can't help it
just the way I've felt inside
since the first time I've met you
despite all we've been through
I cannot let go
just so you know
I'm forever enslaved to your sick and demeaning ways
but not entirely
a part of me
has started to disassociate
all the things that you make
plain
and obvious
sure, maybe just lust
but I think both of us must
admit
it was more than a mind phuck...

it was more than a mind phuck
it was full immersion
more like a life phuck
no mere diversion
I try to be wary
and avoid the same pit
but then sweet love knocks and
I just get on with it

I just get on with it
but
what I wouldn't give
for just one thing
a touchstone
to remind me
that I live

Now won't rest until a woman's work is done
as I lie back in unquiet satisfaction
that she is more the blessed
in giving while I receive

everything flows around you
be a rock as it passes on either side
in the same place and intact,
be a scrap of fabric absorbing
moved along until full and sunken
in a new place and intact,
be a feather and float on the surface
rushing forward, ever moving,
but remaining intact.

you can't really remember the pain
and if you learn nothing there
and bring nothing back
then how can we say
we are worthy of our suffering

my darling dewdrop dumpling
might not be the best line
to leave with you all:
so how's this one?
Develop the part of your heart
that is most afraid to see...

how vulnerable and weak
it can sometimes be
Love can surely bring
you too your knees
Maybe I just need to *sneeze*

Maybe I just need to *sneeze*
out a portion of my brain
not affected by the reign
of terror you've imposed on my heart
tell me why we must always stay apart
when one night sure as hell wouldn't hurt...

when one night sure as hell wouldn't hurt
the quality of love in unspoken thought
uttered live, happening immediately
not held inside for some properly schemed moment
as spread in the fields by some runner
lying in the desert outside Mecca
speaking history as it happens
the art of hellos
in mountain camps
cumming in the plaza
grasping at hands and straws
encountering departure
gesturing toward home
without hesitation
expressed in tounges
carrying itself
through mind and soul
beckoning the appearance
of utopic mountains
staring down upon us
staring down upon the world

who can live like that
I try but my attenton wanders around it like a sine wave
I have a couple of lucid moments in a day, about
as often as a dead watch tells correct time

as often as a dead watch tells correct times
Twice a day wouldn't be so bad
indeed, my hours are always spent
learning something new
in between thoughts of you

I wonder what he looks like
this dream that haunts my night
I can see our home
simple but true
I can see the garden down the lane
Bountiful shrubs enticing butterflies to drink
Amber sunsets while rocking on the porch
watching my son graduate
taking trips far away
Blue oceans, arid deserts, crisp snow crystals bouncing off the window pane
jolted adventures upon a train
but I cannot see his face

I can feel the calm and love
the excitement of going through life
the fights
My kitchen table
and the tile on the floor
but I cannot imagine the face I'll see
coming through the door
to say hello honey
don't see much money
in the bank account...
my account
his has plenty ;)

I can see my son getting a dog
wrapped in a thick, silk ribbon
like the pup on Lady and the Tramp
but I would buy tramp
for purebred dogs... well

Anyways, so I can see this
me doing what I believe in
loving this special man
that finally came around
but I know not the sound
of his voice
by my own choice
I have muted the calls of destiny... (whatever will be will be)

two unarmed birds in flight
parapets of insulated right
minded people who are just enjoying one another

can someone please tell me the posting rules- can't find any- thanks!

http://forums.plentyoffish.com/datingPosts1345738.aspx#11285985

are the general posting guidelines.


for this thread .... the idea was to make a continuous poem.
the idea has been undermined by people often not checking after they post to see if someone else posted first .... or they haven't bothered to check to see if the last posting didn't bother to check if their posting was beaten to the punch.

hence ... last lines that should be used .... get skipped....
it happened on the las page .... and on this page ... and on many other pages .
sometime its fixed sometimes it isn't.

I'm going to fix this one. [where Rasko's line was skipped]
=================================================


staring down at the world
mixed feeling engulfed my being
light and dark with moving greys
cascading over silent screams

how did I rise to be in this place
where will I go when I leave
which is the key to unlock that door
will my passing cause some to grieve

an awe inspiring fulfilling thing
this epiphany from beyond the sky
looking down upon the world
I can only say ... Oh my.
