I don't know good poetry
not bin my study
but if it resonates for me
I'll make it my buddy

I am just a rooky
checking out your write
taking notes from others
who seem to have it tight

the more I read the more I get
to inspire this old spirit
some I grasp some I don't
but I like being near it

so much here I must admit
a little over welming
but great fish food non the less
this is my telling.


ps. I think I like this thread
bin lookin for a home
to exersise my head.

Grip me, rip me, pull my skin from my bones.
Strip me, blind me... you took them from my home.
Open up my life and watch it pour out onto the street.
Open up your eyes, and tell me you are all they desire to see.

Pull the flower from the fresh earth, place it on your mantle.
Pull their choices out of their mouth, force them along like your personal cattle.
This isnt going to work out all that well princess.
And I wont be there when you eventually fall.

Poem For You

put away your second guesses and butterfly kisses
on time for forevers end and you wore jeans
ending of a fantasy in a reality of strugle
my words were not enough to explain this

feeling of hope feeling of terror feeling of grief
only you could know the truth but with disbelief
render me helpless and weak at the knees

you've got me now or so it seems
orange gloss across you lips
under the moon she silently sits

to all those before me who felt the pain
to all those frustrated and had to refrain
to all those who couldnt reach their hips
to all those who couldnt get a grip

to all those who couldnt get to sleep
to all those who could only weep
to those i have one last thing to say
masterbation will take your blues away

For the record - my "Michelle" poem was never composed for any person called Michelle.
It was the product of hearing a name numerous times - perhaps on TV - of that I cannot remember.

To those Michelle’s Loved Before

15 December 2005

Her heart was warm
her feelings soft
With a small ‘Thank You’
and a big one held aloft

Her life an advent to aspire too
her affection of a loving kind
When her own mother was
beautiful in her outlook in find

This Michelle from across the sea
of that land where heritage was made
Her heart so warm that was fair
her love of the world a desire not to fade

From a poet who cares
who cares and really does care
Glad to be of help in granting
a friendly welcome from afar to share

Decadent Some Days

15 December 2005

Pain and suffering
takes a world
and steals a soul
Those moments
never to forget
yet unable to feel whole

This decadence of yesteryear
those trials of tribulation
An adversity to combat
not known if tomorrow
would be a day of celebration

Just to be alive
to know you are there
Just to know you did survive
of a world in command
never quite that place in being fair

Sheltered inside a bond of hurt
wrapped inside a cocoon
Unable to be with friends
then television held some in zoom

Those girls called Courteney
or Jennifer by name
Or was it Elle and Joey
who were much to acclaim

As to Phoebe and her foe
unlike that of Chandler Bing
What was it they were to truly bring

Rachel - Monica and Ross
all to love in their own way
Or was it just a story of writers
to entertain as some would say

Six young people, on their own and struggling to survive in the real world, find the companionship, comfort and support they get from each other to be the perfect antidote to the pressures of life. - Friends: A Comedy Television Series based in Manhattan, New York, USA, about 6 young friends, in the struggle to find success and happiness in life.

Jennifer Aniston as Rachel Green, Courteney Cox as Monica Geller Bing (also as Courteney Cox Arquette), Lisa Kudrow as Phoebe Buffay, Matt LeBlanc as Joey Tribbiani, Matthew Perry as Chandler Bing and David Schwimmer as Ross Geller. With supermodel Elle Macpherson as Janine Lecroix.

A television series created in 1994 [TV-Series 1994-2004] to epitomise the lifestyles of the 1990’s , though the eyes of its 6 stars—in having the working titles of “Across the Hall”, Friends Like Us”, “Insomnia Café” and “Six of One” -to be simply known by its on screen title of “Friends”. A television Comedy / Romance created by David Crane and Marta Kauffman.

A Vision of Love

14 January 1996

It was around midnight
when my eyes fell closed
for just a second or so
when I saw a vision

A young bespectacled woman
sitting on a lawn
grass so green
Isn’t God mean

He showed me my future life
and perhaps also my future wife
for I believe I know this woman
I know that is true

The place I still had to find
Perhaps then I would make her mine
She stood as if to walk with me
like she had once before

for those newcommes

I do not write poems - I play with words - write bad grammar and destroy the English
language - and do not care about rules of what a poem is meant or not meant to be - you
get out of one of my words - not the meaning - but the feeling of reading it - start at the
top - read to the bottom and then ponder over the first thought that comes into you mind -
do not try the think what I was thinking about - relate to what you are made to think about
as a result - and how you feel inside - happy, sad, confused - upset -
just take it as it comes
September 17, 2005

Then I've written over 100 of these poem things so far for December 2005
got to keep up the practice

Crazy Horse

16 December 2005

Love was lemon pie
bitter but sweet to try
When poetry was like a peach
to some it was talent less and out of reach

While others could dream
of golden days in the sun
That was if it was not raining
and this day had not been one

What is a poem
what is love at all
No one really does know
because of love they in and out fall

Like to have a heart and soul
all covered in uncooked
scrambled eggs
Hey she looks sexy
and what great legs

Exhiled here in my prison

Tho' there are no bars
nor conrete nor fences
i am exhiled here in my prison

i have my warden
and guards
names are
TIME and
they keep me here...
exhiled in my prison

and even though it always seems
i'll never share company in jail
that's when i always hear
over half the worl shares my lot in life

like me
in this penitentiary
Exhiled in my prison

Bubble Gum Blues

27 November 2005

Some can be funny - others were true
Then there were really bad movies
and chewed gum on the seats
that was left behind and stuck like glue

While there were topics
at times not all there
Because what was the state
of the state fair

Even if this was a movie
made from some guys play
The subject was merry-go-rounds
and that was another in Carousel you'd say

Some can be funny
as comic as can be
But who left their bubble gum here
because I'm stuck to my seat
and cannot get free

Posted: 12/16/2005 7:27:23 PM
Hmm, I just want to "apologize", or something, for the fact that all of my poems are basically about the same subject, for now anyway. I typically write when I feel extreme emotion of some sort, and lately it has been much of the same for me. So, sorry if reading my words gets old, lol :P

Am I wasting my time?
As I sit here and think about you,
Pondering my love for you,
Wondering what you are doing at this very moment…

I want to be yours.
And I am.
But I don’t want just your heart.
I want your hand.

It’s so easy to just slip it into mine.
As you gaze longingly into my eyes.
But I guess it’s just not that easy to change your mind.

Sorry that this is off-topic... but if anyone is feeling particularly philanthropic, I started a thread in the "Dating and Love Advice" area, called "I am in love with my ex, but cannot re-start the relationship now..." I'm thinkin' the title of the thread is pretty self-explanatory, so if you care to read the dilemma and leave some words, I would be ecstatic :)

kblgal - never "apologize", for writing or expressiing words and feelings from your heart
Write you heart out if need be and don't give a damn about anyone else in the process
That is what creates 'poetry' - and never be sorry for doing that, if this is your desire

Here's one I composed for Kat (from my Katalist)

Barefoot and Beautiful

06 September 2005

Barefoot and Beautiful
away from shoes on her feet
Happiness a smile to have
exchanging another when you greet

Heaven maid and heaven borne
her toes made free to air
Of a heart beating softly
to rhythms classical to fare

Through trials and understanding
no shoes being required to ware
Even when not all was roses in a jar
as to other moments to bear

Barefoot and Beautiful
away from shoes on her feet
Happiness a smile to have
exchanging another when you greet

"He hath made every thing beautiful in his time: also he hath
set the world in their heart, so that no man can find out the
work that God maketh from the beginning to the end."
Ecclesiastes 3: 11 KJV
