Om, you 've certainly had an interesting life! I loved that movie "Almost Famous", have you seen it?

song trigger

color me blue
music came on
and reminded me
of someone
I once knew
who went back to
his woman who
was no good
but memory is true
and brings me thoughts
to view
I never loved him
true
but I can never hear
that song
without remembering
him
when it was new

Om, glad you reposted that, like many others, I really love this poem.....I like the first untitled one about the tiny stubborn whore also........

Swinging

I get
a running start
my legs pumping
stretching
lengthening
and leaning
my hair scuffed
by the wind
swinging
I am an angel
I am a bird
I grin at you
nod
jumping
the balance of
a moment's hangtime
before the painful
reconnection
of my sole

the chain

the chain is in me
my grandmothers hands
my mothers eyes
my fathers sturdy bones
the chain goes through me
a daughters face
anothers fine hair
a grandsons eyes
linked in genetic code
I, the link, might break
but you won't break
the chain

Manic depression is touching my soul
I know what I want but I just dont know
How to, go about gettin it
Feeling sweet feeling,
Drops from my fingers, fingers
Manic depression is catchin my soul

Woman so weary, the sweet cause in vain
You make love, you break love
Its all the same
When its, when its over, mama
Music, sweet music
I wish I could caress, caress, caress
Manic depression is a frustrating mess

Well, I think Ill go turn myself off,
And go on down
All the way down
Really aint no use in me hanging around
In your kinda scene

Music, sweet music
I wish I could caress, caress, caress
Manic depression is a frustrating mess

Anger he smiles, towering in shiny metallic purple armour
Queen jealousy, envy waits behind him
Her fiery green gown sneers at the grassy ground

Blue are the life-giving waters taken for granted,
They quietly understand
Once happy turquoise armies lay opposite ready,
But wonder why the fight is on

But theyre all bold as love, yes, theyre all bold as love
Yeah, theyre all bold as love
Just ask the axis

My red is so confident that he flashes trophies of war and
Ribbons of euphoria
Orange is young, full of daring,
But very unsteady for the first go round
My yellow in this case is not so mellow
In fact Im trying to say its frigthened like me
And all these emotions of mine keep holding me from, eh,
Giving my life to a rainbow like you
But, Im eh , yeah, Im bold as love
Yeah, yeah
Well Im bold, bold as love (hear me talking, girl)
Im bold as love
Just ask the axis (he knows everything)
Yeah, yeah, yeah

Entre Nous

We are secrets to each other
Each one's life a novel
No-one else has read.
Even joined in bonds of love,
We're linked to one another
By such slender threads.

We are planets to each other,
Drifting in our orbits
To a brief eclipse.
Each of us a world apart,
Alone and yet together,
Like two passing ships.

We are strangers to each other,
Full of sliding panels,
An illusion show.
Acting well-rehearsed routines
Or playing from the heart?
It's hard for one to know.

We are islands to each other,
Building hopeful bridges
On a troubled sea.
Some are burned or swept away,
Some we would not choose,
But we're not always free.

wild wind

the wild wind
was council
to my secret heart
wanderlust
enslaved me
anonymity
my intention
to forget
the roots of shame
relocating history
until the day
I ambushed my past
and startled it
into submission

A Caged Bird

suspended in a cage up high
Sitting on a pirch she sighs.
wings feel worn through lack of flight
she sits alone through out the night.

the songs she sing fall on deaf ears
no mate to comfort nor ease her fears.
in the day she flys from pirch to floor
her wings feel weak, her flight is poor.
At night she weeps for the freedom she craves
to spread her wings and escape her cage.

when sleep takes its hold, her dreams come alive,
she's sweeping and soaring through endless blue skies.
her songs echo soflty through the lush fields and trees,
her heart flutters lightly with each gentle breeze.
her mate is awaiting with music so sweet
together they eat, together they sleep.

when sleep lets her go she awakes with a tear
she's back in her prison, there's no one to hear.
her songs once again are wasted in vain
her wings feeling weaker, her heart filled with pain.
theres nothing to sing for, no reason to fly
alone and suspended from a cage way up high.

The Rose

A tiny seedling buried deep
laying dormant through winter as if fast asleep.
as spring time approaches the seed comes alive
sprouts roots from her heart, her goal to survive.

The stem enters daylight and slowly she's grows
gets taller and bolder till petals she shows.
Her colour is vibrant, her scent fills the air
her beauty is subtle, her presence aware.

Her petals give shelter to all creatures small
when rains drops are falling, still she stands tall.
A breeze rocks her gently and scatters her young
her time is near ending, she wilts in the sun.

Each petal falls soflty one by one
her beauty less vibrant, her job here is done.
Where once she stood bolder, no more does she stay
she's fallen like dust which the wind blows away.

Yet deep in the ground as though fast asleep
is a tiny seedling buried deep.
awaiting the spring time when she'll come alive
a rose shinning beauty, her goal to survive.

Just Beyond The Eye Can See...

Just beyond the eye can see, in a world i cannot reach,
Angels dance with endless grace and spirit children play.
Loved ones lost keep a careful watch on those they've left behind,
The sound of laughter fills the air, no sadness can be found.

Just beyond the eye can see, in a world i cannot touch,
Skies are blue, sunsets glow and stars shoot through the night.
The scent of roses fills the air, flowers forever in bloom,
Sandy beaches, moonlit skies, only beauty can be seen.

Just beyond the eye can see, in a world i cannot share,
Is a land full of beauty, of hope, faith and trust,
A place full of serenity, of peace, grace and harmony.
The air is full of a love so deep, a love that embraces all.

Just beyond the eye can see, in a world I'll one day be,
Is a world without pain, no anger, no harm.
Angels offer comfort, will catch you if you fall,
Heaven lays patiently waiting for me to return home.
Just beyond the eye can see.

A Lifetime of Love.

Alone I sit in my faithful old chair,
My days blend into one and it seems no one cares.
The TV stares back at me, my friend and my foe,
As I sit here I pray that when sleep comes ill go.

Memories flash like photos through my mind, both good times and bad,
How I brought up all my sisters, and survived my wicked dad.
When I met my loving husband and he left to fight our war,
How I worked so hard to make ends meet and stopped us being poor.

The memories of my children, of picnics in the park,
Of night time kisses, bedtime stories, cuddles in the dark.
I watched them each as they spread their wings and cried when they flew the nest,
Hoping and praying they’d land on their feet, yet knowing I did my best.

Closing my eyes I remember the love of my life,
The things that we did, the places we went, the time we laughed till we started to cry.
I yearn for his touch, to hear his voice once again,
But he was taken from me too early and my heart still aches with pain.

The loss of my child I couldn’t protect,
A mother’s worse nightmare, a heart filled with regret.
Watching my child suffer as she lost her child too,
How I wish I could have eased her pain, but that I couldn’t do.

Now my days are drawing to an end and my freedom is no more,
I struggle just to stay awake and my memories getting poor.
No one knows just how I feel nor do I feel they care,
To them I’m just another oldie sitting in her chair.

Let them pat me on the head; let them think I’m slow.
I have lived for ten of them and seen wonders that they’ll never know.
Yes I have aged and my legs fail me now but my memories burn like a flame,
My body may be old and weak but my heart is still the same.

The Moon my Friend

Way up high in the warm night sky
She shines with beauty and grace.
Stars glittering like diamonds on a velvet cloth
The world in her embrace.

Protector of the night to all beneath
She guides those who bask in her gaze.
Her light offers comfort to all who share her
With the subtleness of her rays.

Where once night seemed daunting
No more does it scare
Her presence breathes life
In the warm night time air.

She consoles those who need her
Many hearts does she mend
With her shinning aura flying high
She is the moon my friend.

The Awakening

Deep down inside me, something has stirred.
Like a candles started burning, or a lights been turned on.
Something amazing, an awakening has occurred.

I feel like a flower that’s begun to bloom,
Like a sun that’s peeping from behind a cloud,
A bright star at night, or a full lit moon.

My eyes are wide open and for once I can see,
Everything has a meaning, and a place in life.
I am awestruck by the beauty that’s surrounding me.

My body is now glowing with the warmth of the candles flame,
All my senses are heightened and my body tingles in delight.
Inside I’m a different woman but on the out I feel the same.

Today I awake from a very deep sleep; I opened my eyes and could see.
My body is engulfed with renewed energy and light,
An awakening has begun in me.

Missing You

Feeling the warmth of the morning sun,
Waking up slowly, a new day begun.

As eyes flutter open, reality dawns,
I start to feel lonely and emptiness forms.

I go through the day as if everything's fine,
My smiles are false and the laughter’s not mine.

When darkness approaches the feelings appear,
My smiles are gone and i'm now faced with fear.

Deep hidden memories creep out of the grave,
The tears start to fall and i’m no longer brave.

You left me so quickly and hurt me so much,
I close my eyes tightly and pray for your touch.

I still see your smiles; I still hear your voice,
I want to be with you but I have no choice.

You'll stay in my heart and the memories I’ll treasure,
Right here in my heart always and forever.

Song of myself
Posted: 9/2/2007 11:16:34 PM
the hawk has a special place for me
it began so long ago

I don't recall very much now
it was as if you were a dream
a memory
a fantasy
of
life

the hawk seems to take you away
what kind of irony
is that?

what kind of irony
is it when a man
you hated once in your life

becomes a hawk
in
death

what does that mean???

What beauty you all have shared.. thanks

Connection

There will be no other side
than all that you can see
from front to back
the speed of breathing
finds its source
finds its reason
finds your chest
slows and changes rhythm

Things get better
worry never dies
security can seem like a friend
til you see the handcuffs
feel the noose,
choke

Strength is moving
from dark to light
we can't follow
not us
We hold the lamp
the torch
the reason
the future

herd of man
family of woman
children of an age
seeking
finding more
knowing there's more
to find
inside

Sharing never kisses
with lips that tell a lie
about the difference
between a mile
and the distance between us
a measure , not a moment
disappearing in the touch
never seen
