I want to travel,
And see the world unravel.
My plans to head for the heat, and dodge the winter sleet.
I want to travel, in what I’ve only known, and heard in books,
And have a look for myself.
Possibly with no one else.
I don’t want to put my dream back on the shelf.

in my dreams i stop and stare
your beautiful face is everywhere
i reach out my arms to feel
your face ,your soul to see if youre real

but my hands go through some sort of mist
causing my mind and soul to twist
seiing that you are so near
calling you but you cannot hear

i wake up and youre not there
without your touch i cannot bare
for you fill my heart with so much love
when youre the one im thinking of

She smiled at me, and I thought to say
Hi there darling, are you going my way?
Instead I just smiled, and sat next to her
Trying to speak, but my mind was a blur
I wanted to see, to look in her eyes
I paused and delayed, and to my surprise
She turned to me, she offered her hand
We made aquaintance, and my eyes she scanned
So gentle and kind, incredibly blue
Brilliant her shine, Aurorally too
We gazed for a moment, eternal it seemed
Alluring each other, together we teamed
It all came at once, I knew what to say
We sat there for hours, what a wonderful day!
We did meet again, same time, same place
The sound of her voice, she spoke with such grace
Amorously speaking, we've fallen quite fast
For love at first sight, Is a love unsurpassed.

I Want to Love

21 November 2005

I want to love you
I want to love you so much
I want to hold you
and next to me clutch

Your beauty
your child inside
This mother of caring
the Lioness of your pride

I want to love you
and the truth is I do
I love you in my heart
because my love for you is true

You are heaven
you are earth
Because to love you
comes in every thing
to treasure in value and worth

I've never tryed poetry publicly, but i was told i write like one :/

When I look into your eyes
I fall into your darkness,
With the pain of many
and the skys of anguish
I begin my assent
to the depths of your soul

I see the true you
your lies and your deception
To think that im falling
over your misconception
I am not of average
or original by far,
But seeing inside you
is a revalation untold

My love for you grows
with each passing momment,
a momment so rare,
that i wish i could hold it

When i look in your eyes
I see kindness and caring
I'm lifted from sorrow,
and unveiled true love
there is someone there
who i admire and cherish

Your my only true love
and for that, I am yours
I'll Hold you in my darkness,
Till the early morning hours.

haha omg corny anyways was a shot :P

Passions hidden within your soul
Fight against the rising tides
Of emotions fighting to be free
Walls of protection tower inside
The ghosts of the past
Forming a barrier you cannot see

To love you is to accept you
But only you can fight the demons
That hold you far from reach
Let me in and I will shelter you
For I long to help you be free
To fight along your side
And be your strength when you're weak

Let me in so we can fuel the fire
Of passion that has eluded us
And free our souls
So the demons will win no more.

Okay, so I'll take the plunge.......I wrote this last year after the death of a good friend of mine to cancer. I have written others, but this one has special meaning as the anniversary just passed a few weeks ago. I would love some constructive crit.


Her beauty pure
White and silver
Splashes of pink

Her friendship true
Soft word and laughter
Abundance of heart

Her shoulder soft
Strength and experience
Unjust tribulation

Her words wise
Heartfelt and sincere
High cognizance

Her life gone
Sadness and frustration
Intense grieving

Fleeting Anger
Posted: 11/22/2005 10:33:32 PM
Ok...I've been writing poetry for a while ... Poetry is an outlet for my anger/frustration so most poems I will post are dark lol

Rage burning,
Hatred churning.
Love fleeting,
Forever beating, a heart that will not heal.
Sadness growing,
Overthrowing, any thread of decency.
Take my life, for tonight,
I plan to make my last.
Each breathe I take, my heart does ache.
Sweet death, I welcome you

ok...critique...but be gentle!

I really liked that one. I tend to write darker stuff as well, but hey someone's gotta do it. Life isnt all about love and flowery things....or there wouldnt be so many single ppl on this site lol. Keep up the good work.

The following is one of my 'darker' ones...

You Cannot Hurt Me
For I'm already dead
Faith and hope have faltered
Leaving behind despair.

Darkness reaches
Calling my name
Pulling me into its embrace
Where pain and sorrow
No longer exist but make way
for comfort and peace

Distance shelters the pain
never shown in true light.
You can no longer hurt me
But I know you still try.
