Eyes Wired Shut

I've thrown away...
I've thrown away again
The pills that make me
I've thrown away...
I've thrown away again
The chance, the want to change
I've thrown away...
I've thrown away again
Standing all alone
I've thrown away...
I've thrown away again...

Eyes wired shut
Running through my brain
Pulling back the skin
It happens, we're getting older
Eyes wired shut
Running through my brain
It's all the same
But in the end, it keeps me coming

I've blown away...
I've blown away again
The fear of failing
I've blown away...
I've blown away again
The lies that make me sane
I've blown away
The chance to make it right
I want to be
I want to see
I want to make it back to me

Eyes wired shut
Running through my brain
Pulling back the skin
It happens, we're getting older
Eyes wired shut
Running through my brain
It's all the same
But in the end, it keeps me coming
‘Cause I just waste away
The chance the time to face the change
To make myself to think that things are better

Eyes wired shut
Running through my brain
Pulling back the skin
It happens, we're getting older
Eyes wired shut
Running through my brain
It's all the same
But in the end, it keeps me coming
Eyes wired shut
Running through my brain
Pulling back the skin
It happens, we're getting older
Eyes wired shut
Running through my brain
It's all the same
But in the end, it keeps me coming

thoughts of this weekend's future
Posted: 1/5/2007 10:12:27 PM
thank you autumn for your inspiration we both know its true
and thank you too triple, now i've yet another cd to buy!
although both above posters gave such divergent exchanges
both well appreciated and felt deep inside this heart n mind

its not the fear i have
of getting old
but more the
scent of mould
the thought of
being paralyzed
unable to
create anything
within the
realm of taste

life ain't
spittin me out
just yet uh uh
i've got too much to do
here's a few o my plans
well since last weekend
i had my very own pity party
sat in the stinky parts
of my mind till it about rotted
so i won't be doing THAT
anytime soon again...

but now i feel stronger
the usual requisite cleaning
cooking for the week ahead
getting together with friends
for cards or games or a movie
i moved into this place just
mid november so i'm still pulling
loved things from boxes and well
coming onto PoF to write n read
i gotta get my forum fix
n get outside when its sunny
take loooong baths
blah blah blah...

but really truly firstly
is be NICE to myself
keep eating healthy
hydrate
lay in the sun
get a manicure n pedicure
wash my car too
do some of that
work brought home
take pictures and make ads
for items i wanna
sell on a local site
get back to painting
yoga/stretching
time with friends
it'll all mesh right
even if its boring to you

now c'mon
what about YOU?

ok so no one wants to say but me here now i will

strongly feeling something was
lost from inside this heart
swirling in that undertow
of life's waves crashing surf
hawaii 1984 so very long ago

remembering suddenly i was thrust
back up from the strangulation
of those swirls long enough
to air taking a deep full breath
before being pulled down again

given many reprieves too many
to count and now there is no need
what seemed like loss i now see
instead a rare true gift sublime

spewing coughing sputtering
choking on water of life
awake now on the beach in hot sun
realizing i am indeed still alive

some tell me to run or hide myself
i refuse to pretend i can't feel or see
i've learned for me to address whatever
is going on helps the process along
and make no excuse for not all in life
is a beautiful symphony or light song

it is with much gratitude and smiles
i am here this very moment now as you
and i have but this day in which to aspire
benefits ahead coming only in the dreaming
yes but moreso living life as worthwhile

hopefulhun glad you too are having a good and beautiful new year
my eyes have been opened wide by a dear friend so herein i leave these lines


~ inxs ~ don't change

i'm standing here on the ground
the sky above won't fall down
see no evil in all direction
resolution of happiness
things have been dark
for too long

don't change for you
don't change a thing for me

i found a love i had lost
it was gone for too long
hear no evil in all directions
execution of bitterness
message received loud and clear

don't change for you
don't change a thing for me

i'm standing here on the ground
the sky above won't fall down
see no evil in all directions
resolution of happiness
things have been dark for too long

don't change for you
don't change a thing for me

and too, befitting here this beautiful morning especially~

~ the album leaf ~ always for you

in the air i flew
through the clouds i fall
through the country i've walked
in front of temples i've stood
before the ocean I pray
and i said your name

in the air i flew
through the clouds i fall
and all the things i've tried to say
were never easy to explain
they were always meant for you

and all the memories that were made
for years and years
i've chased this day
they were always for you
always for you

in the air i breath
through the clouds i see
through the cities i've walked
in the castles i dreamed
on the mountain i climb
when i call your name

in the air i flew
Through the clouds i've fell
and all the things i've tried to change
were never easy to contain
they were always meant for you
always for you

and all the memories will never fade
for years and years
in my heart you'll stay
it was always for you
always for you
always for you

and all the pieces that remain
they will build a place for us to stay
they were always meant for you
always for you

and all the chances that we take
for years and years
we'll have this place
they were always for you
always for you

right now.... today
Posted: 1/7/2007 8:33:23 AM
they only think of that last high
while down putting others in their wake
sad but true when both play tired games
living lives making learned mistakes

glad for today this sun warm n bright
having learned what i did last night
no more needing of me to wallow
certainly makes things better to swallow

last night learned huge few facts
from the sweet ex's best friend
about the truth herein laid out
in those very true n honest lines

the recent break up had me down
so lately yeah i'd been depressed
again fallen into the nasty trap
her name anorexia but as of today
well now that's so easily all changed
some things are just not meant to last
and instead tossed into the past
when disgust is shown another man
by his own friend knowing his scams
lies are never good to me this much
you all dear know takes trust from me
no matter if it's pointedly blamed on me
others relay it something called integrity

lines here sent sweetly for and to me
so uplifting this morning especially
i too am touched by the laid out rhymes
am grateful for this place to spend time
and will use this response in my thread
well that is, without disclosing too much
and of course that is if you don't mind

when i can again be laid
first a bet i learn was made
think i'd rather stay old maid
than play complicated games
psycho kitty's have been placed
it's on now apparently it's a race!

here there will be no running round
after drinking tequila which i hate
glad i've never acquired that taste
i'm so glad i'm in second place
behind yahoo beauty hot chicky and that
psycho kitty parisian cocktail waitress
drooled over with her faux breasts
betwixt two with so much taste

thankful to me it's been relayed
rather than any tired old debate
it's true it's best to not make haste

thank you again for not taking advantage
of me when you know for my dear YOU
it would be an easy thing to do
as well i'm glad things have been made clear
to me about my being second place
i am not about being betted upon

and glad you had a new year's eve fun
drinking that jack from your flask
of which i bought you a large bottle
drunk with nary a thought of me
i'm glad it went to your good cause
seeking a bright and new year tranquil

pulling forth
Posted: 1/7/2007 10:37:06 AM
thank you lucid, beautiful write; thank you for honoring us herein with placing it here.

we none of us
own the future
for it owns us

wasted energy
wasted time
wasted mind

we none of us
can harness
tomorrow

leash energy
leash time
leash mind

redirection
of focus
setting free
unfurling
moments
in time
making
them mine
spending
them wisely
relearning
to breathe

breathe deeply
breathe deeply
breathe even
yet more deeply

center inside
swirls of color
maze of need

we each of us
in our own ways
pulling forth
from inside
our resolve
thusly so
can make
our own
today

yes even him
sam too

edification
of all souls
focusing
on grace
instead and of
eating
learning
musing
living fully
in all the true
magnificent
brilliance
of today

kisses sweetly received
Posted: 1/7/2007 10:45:18 PM
tIm your writes lately have been so vivid and beautiful, thank you for leaving it herein.
witty your words are too kind, i am grateful too to have our soul's friendship, thank you.

kisses sweetly received
arid desert winds
clearing polluted skies
as well disillusioned mind
thoughts now
turning softly
to images
remembered conversation
hearing your voice
your laughter
your seriousness too
sharing intricacies

unable this night
to trace edges
with my fingertips
of your
collar bones
and visage
from temple
to jaw
then chin
then back
again

music plays in
this background here
wrenching senses free
making me glad
to be me
you to be you
even if i am
but emotion
learning yet
anticipation
longing thirsting
for knowledge

i send to you
now my own kisses
intended
one for your cheek
another your forehead
my aim is bad
as well in darts
for while methinks
they missed their mark
having slid
down trickling
perhaps
hitting
your
heart

hunger
Posted: 1/9/2007 10:15:48 PM
thank you tta nice reflection on innocence


him
master of spoken paintings
musings pondered
brought forth from inside
i feed on your very words
delighting in the way they feel
upon my tongue
as i whisper them
to myself aloud

but moreso in as they
dance within my heart

so far apart so far away
still inside embers sparked
igniting a slow burning reign
of fire orange; yellows reds pinks
turning to purple then blue
before cooling to greener forests
its but a natural course

thoughts flying now
freely in skies expanding
luminous with possibilities

swaying live rhythmic dances
of ages old journeys taken
stories told and retold
rebirthed again

lines pelting images
designed intricately
stories staking claim
deeply inside
our very selves

whirling swirling destiny
shrapnel tearing into
it's target

as music without sound
beauty blind
kindness of unknown
soul re~emerging thus
stretching timidly at first
of warm mud and porous clay
kindling sticks and 'ittlest bones
once lost in fray now found again
redeposited into foundation

now finding myself
only hungering now
please for
more

transcending planes
Posted: 1/9/2007 11:25:18 PM
rc, yes of course you know; thank you


love knows not only
space ad infinitum
time never ending
distance yet traveled
animalia of all types
human kindness of souls
nature everywhere
science of technology
knowledge nor learning
moods or fames of mind
destiny of changing beauty
desires fiery passion
yearning cry of hope
speech nor nations
cultures or creeds
language itself save of the heart

for this much i know is true
love transcends even death
if or when it must, for
love gracefully and simply
just knows

but this morning i believed that it was meant to be


ahh yes
thank you mi
for stopping
by herein leaving
your strong lines

quite the muse

i see you growing
i see you daring
i see you glowing

writes of late so
courageous n strong
brilliant you
me i knew
from whence
i first read your lines
you had it within you
deep all this time


as too
i knew
exactly what
you meant as
for i too
here in this
cold morning

in much the same way
hearing

namaste mi
no wonder
even though
you n i
share openly
our thoughts
someone else thinks
something else entirely
makes me barely sigh

i'm saying oh well
and trust me sweet mi
don't waste but instead
take your own sweet time
anyone anything
worth knowing
reveals themselves
or itself
in all good time
for all the right reasons

here now i dare
to make public
someone absolutely amazing
here wrote me in an email
a mere two days ago
i hope he won't mind
as i shan't name him
but instead am grateful
and very much so

the importance of
meaning within his very lines
i post for you too
for i believe
it applies to you
as well as me:

I'm pretty sure
you are sane person
with a sane, gentle, honest heart.
Protect yourself.
You deserve something real.

and you do mi
you are mi
and you too deserve
someone not unkind
not unright in their mind
someone not so quick
as to think they are entitled
to anger unwarranted
of their own paranoia
namaste mi
go ahead, dear mi, dream
and dare to believe

struck of mercury
Posted: 1/10/2007 7:28:12 PM
you set us all afire
daring us
to forever alter
our programmed
mnemonic minds
with the scent
of your words
imagery of time
loses it's very meaning
in this the blooming
from deepest
within our chests
rises up
but cannot be measured
except perhaps in colours
primal reactions
pouring like liquid silver
as mercury
hot purple red
fading to
morning's dew
until the next time
we are thusly
oh so very moved

stealing, thank YOU for the very same, and your very kind words.

chess game above
skies struggle too
for all to see
mars and pluto
conjoined this night
interesting dichotomy

molten hot
or freezing cold
no withdrawing
as future unfolds
in her own time

whether begging
for will power
or realizing
giving up
complete control
answers different
at specific times

settle in comfy
relax and breathe
look at all
you've already
achieved

secrets harnessing
strength courage
focus is all you need
be white in all deeds
character integrity
choices we make

brightest of lights
planets and stars
streaming across
satellite laden sky
sharing the heavens

whisperings few
if we but listen
carefully take time
we may hear
as they proclaim
child you are better
than this you know
and indeed we do
each of us
know it true

think on this
take your time
positive energy
we each of us
all hold inside

blind eyes locked heart

i see here lately
my lines fall
unto blind eyes
locked heart

shrugging
i have learned
another valuable
lesson good thing
too

shan't waste
efforts energy
time on those
for whatever
refusing to see
to believe
to know
to dare to dream
only seeing themselves
in other's meanings
easy thing to do
i've been guilty too
but so easy to see
if one but takes
a breath and re reads

a place for us novices.........Everything Lost.......
Posted: 1/14/2007 10:10:36 PM
Staring into the screen without a thought
I think of words but metaphors sought
I can’t seem to put them on to this page
No laughter, no crying, no jealousy or rage
I guess with lately comes writers block
I’ve been thinking about life taking stock
Wondering if I should take back my word
If breaking it early would be that absurd
I sit her now and try to think of a way
To think of these words and what I would say
Will they be accepted or will they be lost
Will they be joyous or will they be tossed
I have forgiven the past and all that was done
But her mother holds hatred where I have none
Thoughts consume me from all of the lost time
I want to make amends is that such a crime
So I sit here preoccupied with my hands crossed
Wondering if can make up for everything lost

when all seems lost
triple friend you may
just be surprised at
what you're left with
all that you hold inside

amends are always
a good thing to make
attempts at such
never could be
construed as mistakes

i grant you this night
emancipation
courage
growth
self renewal
then comes
celebration

you're a good man
stick to your path
waver not in your
knowledge already
gained for you
are worthy of
even yet more
this world and life
she is your star!

continue to strive
for her and yourself
be the best that
you know that you are
all yes i assure you
all will be fine

no worries
of things passed or
ahead nor beyond
your control instead
positive reflection
will take over soon
ever so bright
focus on those
ladders easiest
for you now to traverse
a new peak comes thus
as mercury ends it's journey
through capricorn
shifting into aquarius
tend to yourself
so you may best
also tend your star~

let her be your guide
in all dealings with
mommy full of pride
methinks you won't
be sorry and oh by the way
that writer's block we all
falter and know it quite well
just breathe and steady
your mind allowing
thoughts to flow in and out
just go with your natural flow
you are right where you
are meant to be right in this
very moment just breathe

Yes soft

Hope a desire with expectation,
Faith an unquestioning believe,
Courage being brave or having valor,
Growth to develop and enlarge; grow
Star a celestial self luminous object
Also regarded as directing ones fate
Strive to make great efforts
Or try harder, to struggle
Best, well to be most favourable in short
Yes soft it has been such a long long journey
But with all of these years has come some….
Fear for apprehension and concern
To maybe even expect some misgivings
So until then yes
Breathe and breathe deep I will!

Oh and thanks...

here we can just be real
Posted: 1/15/2007 6:51:24 AM
thank you triple, for making me smile~you know you've got it inside!
rc, great write and yes insight too especially for one of a mere 22; thanks for sharing
mr k thanks for stopping by and singing for us too


days stretch into nights
sky offering it's signs
we think for all for us
well i'm selfish
about those sorts
of things always
head in the skies
pointing out to others
so much so that yes
they do grow tired of it
but i am only me

the show goes on
whether we take note
of it's glory or not

nights bow out sleepily
to days rebirthed anew
again the glory
of life continues
refreshed with each
new rising to our ways

are we each fully aware
in the moments
of our lives of hope
we know of yearning
some know of sharing
others takers bent on deceiving
here there are none of those

here we can be ourselves
we can just be real
i like this place

colors
Posted: 1/15/2007 6:53:05 AM
what color is
forgiveness
friendship
care
kindness
love
sex
lust
a climax
floating
tenderness
hunger
thirst
helpfulness
chaos
fear
despair
hope
laughter
a child
playfulness
naughtiness
a hug
a kiss
glee
a smile
another's soul
our own aura
a whisper
nature
a blessing
truth
deceit
fame
scents
growth
a journey
inward searching

my guess is
they are each
many colors
unto themselves

for a cyber brother
Posted: 1/15/2007 6:54:20 AM
satellite connections
cyber worlds
finely perfected
honed words

honor is yours
time is ours
a gift precious
designed of a
most divine mind

trust the skies
trust yourself
and the glimpses
caught reflecting
the truth of who
you are but perhaps
the very first step
is to change the
idea and ideal of
whom and what
you are have you
forgotten dear?

you are perfection
you are a man child
of the universe
and it is the all
knowing perfection
of grace to sustain
and hold you with
utmost tender care
until again you feel
like yourself and
again want to dare
after you are done
being so strong
for everyone else
daring to bleed
when do you get to
see and believe
you simply shine

shaking off dust
Posted: 1/15/2007 6:56:11 AM
slowly spring to life within
yourself shaking off dust
from the muck and sludge
we struggle sometimes
too much in our minds

find and make time
for yourself to dream
truly fulfilling dreams
men are allowed to too
don't cha inside just know
's ok to feel 'n yourself be
remember... just breathe
sometimes just be
dare to dream in color
swoop through any darkness
imagine our sun warming
your face as you glide
fly through the air
with your beautiful wings
on your blessings and prayers

colors....colours
Posted: 1/15/2007 10:09:48 AM
Colors …colours
Two spellings of this word
With all of this
Nothing I’ve heard
But to all of them
And all words taken
They are all colours
Not to be mistaken
With any one
Taking on each shade
Words are many colours
Though eventually fade
Into the next
So everyone will know
How all of these words
Make up a rainbow
