Saying good bye
Posted: 11/27/2005 12:05:30 PM
Always and forever will I hate
You left me and that was my fate

To never see you again
That bullet was your end

Your selfish ways have made us morn
The lives that your have torn.

You left us my love we are forever in the dark
You life has left its mark

You will never know the hate I feel
You have made the final seal

Never again to see you face.
Never again to grace our place

Good bye my love you will be missed
Never again to be kissed.

I hope one day I'll see you soon.
Till then all is in the gloom.


This is for my husband By K.W.

The Tell Off!
Posted: 11/27/2005 2:58:16 PM
Nice write Dewkiss! And here's one in that vein too!



How can you go on living?
Living with yourself,
treating people like you know what they're all about.
When you don't!
You don't know what passions they have
or what they see in a person.
Where do you get off?
Saying what you say?
Can you even imagine
how one could take what you just said?
What actions you've just precipitated?
Do you feel any guilt?

Oh, you are so righteous,
in your search for Mr. Perfect.
Although you shall never find him,
you won't pause in your
relentless flailing to drag under those who reach out to you.

You see, you just wouldn't be satified.
What ever you acheiveit won't be enough.
You seek your own self-image,
but no matter how hard you look,
every mirror has its' flaw.
Medusa did not die at the sight of herself,
but at the reflection of her perception.
She just could not accept fate
and take fortune as providence befitted.

-Dash ©1996

Hello all! Thank you very kindly for the comments!! I hope you didn't think I was ignoring, just gone for the holiday. I loved all the writes I missed in that time. Vegan: I've always wanted one of those magnetic poetry things. Thanks for the site name. Dash: I, too, tend to write only when the feelings are already gushing about something. I suppose I should try to nourish it more often, but c'est la vie. Dew: I liked your post in 349 the best. It just spoke to me. Reminds me a lot of some of my earliest writing. Will post an example. Thanks again to all for the kind comments!

"In this circle, I have no name
Merely a shadow in this game
Against my fate, I try to fight
So I can do just one thing right

Still, I find nothing I can do
Fate's dagger has run me through
My heart gushes, bleeding dreams,
Coming apart at its seams

All night I lie in bed and weep
It is the only thing that helps me sleep
And the memories of days before
Come back to haunt me ever more

In this circle, shrouded by night
Protected from the fiendish light
Rain pouring down the essence of my soul
Lightning's beauty helps to mend the hole

Immersed within the falling dew
Its warmth and solace get me through
Everything I love has been lost
And I am still bearing the cost

My soul floats through the sable void
Having been completely destroyed
Looking back, filled with disdain
All I sacrificed was in vain

In this circle... almost dead
Only one thing left to be said
I loved you always, I thought you knew
So, what have I ever done to you?"

Good Vs. Evil

Good and bad, light and dark
Each of these hit their mark

Love and hate, pleasure, pain
Pooling out into a stain

Ecstasy etched upon my face
Strong as leather, soft as lace

Betrayal floods my soul with pain
Falling down like drops of rain

Revenge is such a strong emotion
Inspiring only true devotion

Lust and greed now fill my heart
Both of these will play their part

Pleasure, pain, love and hate
Bring me close to heavens gate

Light and dark, good and bad
Tell me, am I going mad

In Memory of Darla, Dusty and John Taken to Their Lord April 1,1999

April fools day arrives each year
The calendar turns and brings it here
As the years tick by we miss you more
But talk about you less than we did before
Dusty you would be twenty-one
Your life would be busy and full of fun
Darla you would be twenty-three
I try to imagine - too hard for me
John as the oldest you'd be twenty-four
You had one child and would have had more
Jamassa Derring put a gun to your head
He pulled the trigger and now you are dead
Three life sentences is what he will do
For taking three lives, for killing you
I hope his time will be bitter and hard
Maybe someone will jump him at yard
But we have to put all that anger aside
We're still alive - along for the ride
I keep all three of you close to my heart
Taken too soon, lives ripped apart
One yellow, one blue rose and one pink
When I see them, of you all I think

Running, running,
round and round.
Cant get my feet to touch the ground.
Trying to find my place,
in this life of maze.
Can you be my path of light?
Help me find a way through the darkest night?
Through this dark and misty haze,
running, running,
round and round.
Help my feet to find the ground.

Only Music
Posted: 11/29/2005 5:16:37 PM
I get my love
from my music
This is the only way
I've ever received the
love that I need.

Forget the passions of the flesh,
that for which I still much yurn.
It is the essence of
emotion that I truly seek.

How many times
have I been attracted?
And how long does each last?

Music is my one true love;
that for which, I will not part with.
It demands no changes of me,
as willing as I might be.

I get my love
from my music.
As noble that I may strive to be,
and as fate would have it,
music shall be all I need.

So ya wanna be a poet?
Posted: 11/29/2005 7:19:19 PM
"Perfect freedom."

I'm not asking
for commitment
That's nice but it's
not enough for me

I need you to do
what you need to do
I want you to be
who you want to be

Then if everything's
right between us
You may choose
to do it all with me.

Broken Cookies?
Posted: 11/29/2005 7:27:00 PM
"My Cookie Philosophy"

Surround yourself with cookies;
but not the broken kind.
Surround yourself with whole ones
with a heart, a soul, a mind.

Whenever you meet a cookie
with bits all chipped away
be warm and kind and smiling
as you bid him a firm "Good day".

If your friends are broken cookies
crumbs are all you'll find
They're sure to insult your intelligence
and crumble up your mind

They say "Two halves can make a whole"
but with cookies you can't be sure
for the half he lacks may be the half
that you've been looking for.

So, surround yourself with cookies,
the company's always good;
and one is sure to notice you.
This must be understood.

Be a good little cookie.
Be as whole as you can be,
for somewhere there's a wholesome cookie
to make "you" and "him" a "we".

Posted: 11/29/2005 7:30:35 PM
although i wouldn't go so far as to call this a poem, i have a liking for stupid jokes, etc. and i guess i've reached a new low by making others suffer like this but i can't resist. it's intended for a prospective mate and i call it "domestic bliss"
do you know how to make a bed?
do you own a needle and thread?
do you have some pots and pans?
what's that, a rolling pin in your hand?
wait, i was only teasing you!
now my black-eye's turning blue
that's ok, my mistake.
but can i have some chocolate cake?

celebrating the 400th post
Posted: 11/29/2005 7:50:15 PM
in the clouds

a circling white, of ancient light
who, with lucid rays of perfect blue
unrolled across a canvas sky
to lay His softest shade on you
while headwinds of a holy kind
blew sweet dreams behind your earthly eyes
love's colors filled your sailing mind
and pushed you through to paradise
beyond the ecstasy of white
above cloud-cover, pristine blue
your gossamer wings unfurled bright
and wet with newborn love you flew
past earth-limits of waking scenes
to play in worlds of dreams come true
you spread His light through prism wings
in rainbow tones of heaven-hue
you were soaring, soaring, soaring high
your head was in the clouds
as love was circling by
...2001sam...
