^^^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

Hey folks! just wishing ya all a happy new year, don't stop the wonderful writes,... I'm still reading!
As regarding the fake lion,.... don't dignify the loser with a response! He's lying like crazy, for all we know he keeps his arms toned by switching hands in mid-stroke! Mind you that is quite an accomplishment on the back of a motorcycle. Guess we all have our acheivements!

A talker is not
so much as they talk,
but they just dont get
or know how to bet
on what they can say
or do to another
and walk and walk
all over ones day
some wonder at why so few balk
at the dumb shits talk!

LOLOLOL not bad for a two minuites impromtu! Reminds me of toastmasters! Anywho, later folks!

Great is my contribution.

So clear now,
Depths of character;
And my role black
In the end
I relent, my guns again silent

Each face,
It's sometimes sunshine;
And I divide
One by one
They falter, but they still throw thunder

House of God
Posted: 2/3/2006 6:06:45 AM
Behold, I am a devil in the house of God,

I rule my domain with an iron rod,

I walk his hallways in search of a door,

I cant talk to him, he dos'nt love me anymore,

I light a candel, to signify I have died,

and remember all the tears that I've cried,

Wheres my salvation? When will I get to come home?

Eternity is a long time,

so these empty streets I rome.

Getting my feet wet by diving off the deep end.


The pyres blaze
From bridges burnt
The soul cries out in madness
For thoughtless days
Of lessons learnt
The spirit screams with sadness
Cursed and reviled
For innocense
The heart shrieks out in pain
Eyes of a child
In ignorance
Dreams never to attain
Lost to time
Out of place
But never without hope
A minor crime
To lose face
And with cold fingers grope
Timeless end
Naivete a joker's hex
On the mend
Cursed by the "fairer" sex

Ohhhh...the water's cold


Just beyond my private realm
Lay worlds I may never see
I'm a prisoner of my own device...
I sought to set me free
I built tall walls around me...
Distractions to keep at bay
I only wanted to be free...
It's not turned out that way
Perhaps it comes not from within
This freedom that I sought
Perhaps it all a bill of goods
That stupidly I bought
Many years I built these walls
I built them strong and true
They don't compose the hallowed halls
I envisioned walking through
The methods and the craftsmanship
With perfection as a goal
Now seal me from companionship
I've built my own black hole
The tools of this construction
Are now beyond repair
I must begin destruction
I must gasp for fresher air
Alone with only pen and ink
I must destroy these walls
Upon solution I must think
Until the last one falls
I hope that I'll still recognize
Parts of the other side
I imagine the roads are rougher now
It'll be a bumpy ride
If this pen and ink can dissolve the stoney face
I'll try freedom on the other side
And rejoin the human race

Great writes Luuuv2Laaaf..."I Gotta Let It Go" struck pretty close to home.Thanks for your comment Dashance...glad you liked them. Here's a couple more.


I'll never fall in love again....I won't
....Too late
I'll never let anyone in my head again....I won't
....Too late
I'll never again be a romantic fool....I won't
....Too late
I'll never be hurt that bad again....I won't
....Too late
I will not always love her....I won't....I won't
....Too late....Too late


The devil stands smiling
In innocent disguise
On street corners
And in dark alleys
Peddling his poisons
Fools stand in line
Like kids in candy stores
Oblivious to the pain
Despair hovers over them
Like a malignant cloud
Spewing vile,putrid toxins
On minds and hearts
Enslaving souls
Destroying hope
Shattering dreams
Altaring futures
They know of no antidote
Yet they return for more
Certain pain-filled death
They're blinded to the harm
Quickly seen and felt by others
The cloud becomes a killing fog
Enshrouding the dying
Those who could help
Turn a blind eye in fear
The devil stands smiling
Waiting on fools

Wonderful writes Baroness and Puppetz69.Here's another of mine...I hesitate to post it because it is another of my looong ones.I don't want to bore anyone,but it seems it takes more lines to express myself sometimes.If it's too long,I'm sure someone will let me know.Anyhow...


Just a stroll down a sun dappled path
The morning breeze stirs the trees
Invigorating the living
And resurrecting the dead
The path leads really nowhere
But it goes to where I need to be
To follow the twisting,winding course
Unwinds and brings stability
I drink of nature's nectar
And drunkenly shed burden's weight
I inhale nature's beauty
And am more alive with each step I take
The vastness of complex simplicity
Awe-inspiring at the least
Humbling...yet intriguing
This simple woodland path
I love to stroll in early morn
As life comes back to life
And early morning spangled light
Illuminates the world
There are no words which can describe
The reverence I hold
For the beauty all around me
And the hand that created it
I try to take a diff'rent path
Each time I take this stroll
There;s so much more 'round another bend
At the end there's always hope
When the path has come full circle
And finally,I'm back where I began
I'm eyes are opened
And I am whole again

I'd like to thank all the poets here who have challenged me and provided insight,perspectives,motivation,and inspiration. Y'ALL ROCK!!!
Here's another of mine.I may have to trim it a bit because it is very long.Just can't decide what to take out.What's your opinion?


One cold autumn morn
As a blanket of fog
Suffocated the liveoaks
And a lowcountry mist
Hovered like cannon smoke
Above the still surface
Of the dark brackish waters
I heard disturbing sounds
Sounds I did not wish to hear
Perhaps it was the ageless beauty
Shrouded in obscurity
That stirred the echoes
Of long forgotten pain
Bugles and gunfire and screams
Bloody swords clashing
Cavalry horses shrieking in terror
At the smell of blood
The lives of mere boys
In both Blue and Gray
Spilled needlessly
To paint the earth crimson
The trampled earth accepted
The ultimate offering
Of fathers and sons and brothers
Staccato cannonfire sounded
The depthless sorrow
Of sisters and wives and mothers
In the mists I thought I saw
A bearded man in grey
Upon a great white horse
Watching the unseen battle
With tear-filled eyes
There were no victors here
Only the dead now forgotten
Their memories have faded
Or become too painfull to remember
But the liveoaks remember
Their limbs hang bent and twisted
Not so much from the weight of the Spanish moss
As from the horrors they witnessed
Some bear the scars of bullets
By which they saved a young mans' life
Only to be spared a moment
Until the next bullet cut him down
I wondered the length of carnage
Was it measured in hours or day
How many souls were lost
To a cause whose price
Was far too dear
And as I watched and listened breathlessly
The horseman rode away
The sounds of battle ceased
And I was once again alone
In the silence
Of the swirling lowcountry mists
A woodpecker tapped a dead cypress
And beckoned a new day
With sounds not unlike
Those of a snare drum
In the clouded distance of yesteryear
.........Or tomorrow
Not again tomorrow

You Was My Angel

When you was alive it was so hard to get the word's to come out, i wanted so bad to tell you how i really felt.

Everytime i tryed to put the thought's into word's and tell you, it was like i frozed or i stuttered whenever i tryed to tell you.

I just gave up on trying but now when i think back on the time's. That i have tryed to tell you and it felt, and seem's not that hard.

Now you'r gone forever and i will never get a second chance, to say or do those thing's. When you was alive you made my life whole, you made me feel like i had something to live for.

You made me happy you made me smile from the inside out, before you came along i was lost.

Without a trace you showed up and you picked me back up on track, i would give up everything just to have that day back again.

The sadest thing is i knew and felt like you was "the one" for me, and i screwed up.

I'm sorry that i have let you down, i would have gave anything to be the one that died. When you died a huge part of me died right along with you, but i know i can not be with you not right now.

That day will come when we will see eachother again, I'm sorry that i let you down. I'm sorry that i can not be up there with you, i miss the time's we shared i miss how you made me laugh and smile.

You made me feel like i had something worth living for, and i did that "something" was you. I know i need to get over you'r death, and move on but how can i.

When my whole world just came tumbleing down on me, and the only one that can put it all back togeather is you.

You'r not here even when i need you the most, you was like an angel sent from above to watch over me and help me get through my problem's.

I thank god eachday for what he has did and sent me, you was my angel and i should have treated you better than i did.

I'm so sorry that i let you down, i just pray that you forgive me.

I will never forget you i love you, and i knew just how lucky i was to have found someone like you.

Just remember something there will never be another you, someone like you only comes into my life one time.

Please forgive me and always remember that i love you, and always will.

Rest In Peace Jeremy Hazlinsky.

Her memories are her own
Yet she writes them for all to see
She hopes there's someone out there
Who understands, knows what she means

She feels all alone and uncertain
Yet Still she finds the strength
To get out one more poem
She'll go to any length

Writing of friendship and pain
Of People who have come and gone
If they were still here to read them
They'd truly be in awe

She watches the sun rise
She sees the sun set
Because she's unable to sleep
She puts out her best work yet

So many things to say
So many things she feels
So much shes experienced
To some, it can't be real

Only she knows her secrets
Some of them she hides
The rest she needs to share with us
Her poems are her pride

I have learned one thing from reading them
Yes, I have told her so
Lets not look down on others
Especially this Broken Soul

This goes out to Heather......

That is very sweet and nice of you to have written that for me babie_dollz, you are an excellient writter and i hope you continue to keep writting you'r word's send out such meaning's, and emotion's just by reading them even tho all of our poem's are just "text" even mine.

But i think there are alot of good writer's who have posted on this fourm and they should never give up on their writting's or on their dream's because, nothing is ever to big or heavy to handle.

Great writes all...I hope some of your prolific talent rubs off. Thanks kblgal...I think I'll take yours and separated's advice and leave "echoes" alone. Here's one I scribbled while stranded on a drawbrige, waiting on a sailboat, as a storm approached.


Bird specks wheel
Tossed ungraciously
In the frontal assault
Like shadow dancers
Before a dark curtain
Of burgeoning,light eating clouds
The darkness is mirrored
On a frothy,whipped sea
The tips of whitecaps
The only source of light
An ominous palor precludes
That which is coming
The swords of gods flash
Ripping open the bellies of clouds
While their heavy hammers
Pound them into submission
The fluids of life begin to spill
Torrentially they fall
On the just, and the unjust
On everything in its' path
The wall of darkness approaches
Demanding respect
Inspiring fear and awe
Unpredictable and unpreventable
Natures' finest show of force
Hypnotic in its' approaching fury
Frightening in its' grasp
Refreshing in its' wake
Cleansing and rebirth its' legacy
Like a fourth of July fireworks display
It passes too quickly
But it will return
Again and again
Following natures' own timetable
Regardless of men
And their futile attempts
To achieve the status of gods
