Perfect reading to go along with the fabulous day I have been having. Thanks Kat and Lindsay

To Smile

We all do it
It's shows on your face
We can all feel it
Try it, it's great
It comes from here
It comes from there
I know,
I've seen it everywhere
Smile every day,
you shall be cured
Smile in a way,
genuinely pure
Someone will catch it,
I know foresure
It will travel far and wide
Causing joy around the globe
We all understand its power
Small, tall, young, or old
If everyone smiled all together
We would see this world ease
It may not keep or last forever
But in that moment
We would have peace

Pain(rough draft) sorry about posting first drafts...i dont like to post a finished work

i sit here alone lost in thought

the nitemares of days gone past haunt me

causing my soul to gasp

some much i have lost

and nothing i have gained but anger and pain

my one true love

before my eyes

went to the bottom i did not rise

my babies murdered before i even see their eyes

my soul screams as it is slowly ripped apart

all i have loved has come to depart

leavin me feelin so cold at heart

alone i sit

knife in hand

blade to wrist to stop this pain

tears flow forth as it peirces the skin

and of you i think again

my life i owe you for i dropped the blade

to you i come my love

it wont end the same

i love you now more than then

you i will never lose again

The Dawning of a New Day

Did you ever see the sun rise
in the morning over the mountaintops?
a sight to behold, signalizing a new day
a chance to begin again and start off
fresh, The storms of yesterday only a
forgotten memory left in the cold

Did you ever see the flowers
bloom in the spring?
sewn by the seeds of yesterdays
frost implanted in the ground
rising up again to spring beauty
where yesterday there was
darkness and decay

Did you ever see the ocean in the morning
waves calmly splashing to shore?
soothing the soul with peace and tranquilness
where yesterday it's fierce waves
and powerful winds, made you cower
in fearfulness

Did you ever have a love that made you
whole and complete?, where everyday was
a new day, a love like this will last for an eternity
yesterday's sorrow will perish in defeat

I bet we all get requests from our bud in Chat or IM space?

Here's a poem I wrote for one of em. I'am always trying this fer friends utilizing there names or handles etc. Its a simple innocent frolic! Hehehehe.... hey no one tried to answer that bit about the "hehehehe"!

The Mistress of Pain
is here today
just call out to her loudly
and avoid that big stain.

You want to keep on
the good side of her
'cause if you forget
there'll be another one with a bane.

The room is chaulk full
of those looking for gain
no need for another but a
Queen Mischief of Pain!

OKay! Okay! I'll just tell y'all! It's a naught chuckle or laugh,... semi-perverted in a 'nice' fun way.
I find the following to have something of a mysterious lilt/cadence/rythym to it but still find it pretty cool despit its subject.

A purple petal falls
gently to the ground
one teardrop follows another
summer breezes rustle the branches
above his lonely head
having lost what he never had
a spring gushes forth
cleansing his dirtied face
the flower is laid bare
on a flagstone near the bench
where his promises once were dashed.

There are a lot of very talented people on board !!!

This poem is about my last 3 1/2 yr common-law relationship. I met him on the net and his handle was White Knight, thus explaining the title. Sadly I STARTED writting it in year one. I finished it 2 months after I booted him. Guess I should pay more attention to the poetry I write.

Shadows in the Knight

Broken dreams, broken promises; who is right, who is wrong?
Does anybody really care.
A heart shone brightly but for a moment,
defused by unwanted discoveries.
Reality becomes disguised with deception,
tearing love apart one petal at a time.
Communication transforms caused by painful truths learned
chasing shadows in the Knight and capturing even the most hardened soul.
Memories of days gone by best left forgotten sour the present, the future, the beginning, the end.
As the light slowly dims,
another chapter draws to a close,
bringing with it a long awaited peace.

There is such amazing talent from everybody...great poems kat, ksgal, ty, kara, dash and diva i really enjoyed your talent...

The Wedding Day

Our love has grown in many ways
if our love was like a flower
there would not be enough
space in the sky to hold
its blossoming petals that
grow larger by the hour

Our souls soar and glide together
as two eagles glide gracefully
and hauntingly above the sky
moving in sync with the wind
people gaze upon it's beauty
hypnotized unable to
look away with their entranced eyes

A love like this comes once
in a lifetime i know in my heart
you were sent from the
heavens summoned by the angels
right from its whirlwind start

Our wedding day begins with
a magnificent rainbow
lighting up the morning sky
stretching over the snow peaked
mountains and across the valley
resting on the middle of the highway

It's as if god is signaling us to follow that path
to the end and that is where our salvation lies
its many treasures saved for us made
up golden memories and polished unbroken
chains of undying love its brilliance
blinding to the naked eye

Short and sweet

It's all over except for the crying
I realized my heart was dying
All this bullshit I was buying
Now freedom is what I am eying
Ends the hurt and all the lying
Walks away while she is sighing

You walked away from me.
You whispered your reasons many a time.
You walked away from me.
I never understood why.

Why must you so desire the one thing I lack?

You walk away from me.
You whisper your reasons many a time.
As your tears stain my cheek.
As you passionately embrace me.
As your lips brush up against mine.
You walk away from me.
I will never understand why.

the main thing to do is to write in expressing words from your heart
keep those writes coming - and this thread alive in your words

So ya wanna be a poet?
so lets show it!

I may have composed over 90 of my poem things so far this month of December 2005
but we all had to start some where - once

Image of Her Soul

13 December 2005

A man can love a woman so far away
He can look at her in image
With these words to say

His eyes focused upon her steer
That sunlight reflected from her soul
She told him - his words were beautiful
He returned to her in knowing
She was beautiful in view

The poet - his heart - her poetry
Twice in exposure picture fixed
A force of admiration both
Lips touching in metaphor

This was why - love held no bounds
While barriers prevented touch
Of these words of poetic flavour to taste
What of love to this life
his to her - neither and either to waste

a sensous look, a wicked glance
mentally, im trying to get in your pants
a devilish smile , the wildest grin
youd think that i am living in sin

a stunning bod, long flowing hair
so much heat it's starting to flare
a sudden shake , i bit my lip
my hands are hovering above your hips

the kiss is hot , im starting to shake
our bodies entwined causing a shake
just when she's about to scream
i wake up , what a hell of a dream

Now i lay myself to sleep
Protect me God from those who creep
With evil plots and wicked schemes
To snatch me from my peacefull dreams
I know theres bad things i have done
Thats why i'm sleeping with my gun
If i should be startled from my peacefull slumber
My gun will roar with blasts of thunder
Got to fight to live one more day
So many things to do
So words to say
Sick of being treated like a criminal
Sick of working like a slave
I gotta keep my head up
And keep looking over my shoulder
Cuz this crazy world keeps getting

The Dream(first draft)...this is part one of a set of poems about this woman whom haunted my dreams for yrs...i did eventually find her nad i also lost her for good...the other ones i may post later..actually one is already posted...pain involves the same woman..this one was written before i actually meet her

everynight by my side she lies
an angel with lonely eyes
her name i shall never know
to her belongs my heart and soul
as i near the lake she vanishes and i awake
alone with an emptyness which i cannot fill
in this infinite darkness i shall always dwell

T'was the night before Christmas
and i was alone in the house
I was watching the Playboy channel
then my cable went out

Suddenly on the roof i heard
the patter of feet and alot of noise
Could ths be Santa on my roof
bringing me some new toys?

I got out of bed and went
to take a look outside
I saw who was on the roof
and to my surprise,disconnecting my sevice
it was only the cable guy

So the moral of the story is
pay all your bills before you
do all your Christmas shopping
or you'll be like me, broke and alone on Christmas
eve only being able to watch network T.V.

^^^LMAO....good one. That was cute!! Now too bad you don't know any elves to keep you company!!! : ) But no problem, I'm Santa's top elf and last on the rooftops, so as long as you've been good all year, I'll make sure your cable stays connected. (now quit watching Playboy and tune in to the weather channel and shovel that walk. Sometimes we do need to use the front door you know!) P.S. Don't forget the cookies, and ...ummmm... beer! : )~

Though Christmas comes one day a year,
I wish I'd always feel that cheer
Good feelings stirred way deep inside,
As kids wake up with eyes so wide

Was Santa here, did I get my wish?
The cookies are missing from the dish
He must have come, I thought it was thunder,
Happy faces delight and show their wonder

Who wants a doll, who wants a bat,
Who really knows where Christmas is at
I know one thing because I'm smart,
Joy comes from giving straight from the heart!!!

Happy Holidays to All.........and to All..You have 11 days left, so get off the net and get your butts out there! lol : ) xoxox

Michelle is her name
given by birth claim
Sure she does exist
written in songs that twist

Young, old and a mother
wife, sister with a brother
This woman of vision
caught up in lifes collision

Angel of the soul
filling her feminine role
with qualities of purpose
bound to surface

She therefore is a symbol
of the ideal rule
Her home may not be here
but she is everywhere

“FOR the law having a shadow of good things to come, and not the
very image of the things, can never with those sacrifices which
they offered year by year continually make the comers thereunto
perfect. But in those sacrifices there is a remembrance again
made of sins every year. Wherefore when he cometh into the
world, he saith, Sacrifice and offering thou wouldest not, but a
body hast thou prepared me: By the which will we are sanctified
through the offering of the body of Jesus Christ once for all.”
Hebrews 10: 1, 3, 5, 10 KJV
