this time

i will hold you as the pain
of winter bites like ice
piercing,
shards of wisdom remain
lingering awaiting spring
fiercely,
winter ends as you bathe
in younger seasons' truths
the tierce

of time

thanks Rosie and Luri...love the writes you two!

Nay to daggered heart,
pierced, but beating,
love fleeting
in instant death,
imminent dreams
postponed,
honed
in love's absence
to a fine blade,
sharpened by the eye
of doom.

little flits here and there...
small fires burning everywhere
as the sweat rolls down
I wonder if I've found
the energy to keep it together...

i am here to post my poetry....and that is all....not to interact with other poets..please understand and admit you were wrong about this...i cant correct the title without a new thread..but you would have known all of this...if you had taken the time to nicely ask me...in stead of quoting the rules...the rules are not designed so we cant correct a title mistake or any other logical reason for a new thread..think about that..dude.

It's called edit
when you write
you proof the spillings
before annoucing them to the world

Yes
I love him
but no one really
for he claims I must love myself
a more conceited individual
I've yet to know
I even think
I make sense
on occasion...

What's this I've found>?
Margaritas didn't bring it out
Perhaps it's the lingering feeling of doubt
and wanting to run
to somewhere I've never belonged
can I fight the battles
within my mind
sleep is over...
wake up time

Morbid armor of thy fate,
die a graceless death...
covet not thy evil,
thus shall I slay thee
upon blood rock,
thine eyes shall peer
alone...
severed from thy righteous body,
casting out invading spirits,
thus shall ye know
swift the justice sword,
peril no more Goddess
on your departure.

This house of cards
is built upon sand
A foundation not solid
Of mortar or concrete

A shambles to be seen
If you look well enough
Cold, hard, and calculating
A toll to be paid for deciet

Invading spirits
that deceive a heart so
confusing ones mind
on which way to go
Severed from
thy righteous thoughts
leaving wisdom
in far away spots
covet thy emotions
of wants and desires
for inside a heart
are kindling fires

Sara and Mandrake...thought about what you both were saying and tried tying the two together...hope you don't mind...was bit of a challenge. Both wonderful writes that has sent my head reeling with thoughts. Have a good evening, both of you.

you are perfect
you have never left
your muddied boots your
shaving cream your sweaty
shorts in my way
not one day
in one respect
you have never left
my messy heart my
errant dreams my cluttered
mind short of smiles
big huge pile
i miss you

if you're horny and you know it clap your hands
clap clap
if you're horny and you know it clap your hands
clap clap

If you think just one mind blowing orgasm
would somehow release the ache in your back
mind, eyes... trying to read too much
has left me blind to the needs of any old human being

would it help
has two weeks passed
can I ever
feel at last

Can I just be lazy
and **** all day
sleep it off a litttle while
wake up again
just to be devoured all over

Have I ever existed in such a manner?
Hmm... close enough to know that it isn't what I need
more time only leads
to greed

Why is it that even though
i can achieve things all alone
I prefer to feel
the salt of skin
against my tongue...
must I really have some
of that foolish desire
burning fire
that cannot be quenched all alone
perhaps some toys could ease the pain
but I'd be lost in a game
and right now
I need to finish
this ****ing paper
but I want a kiss

from my head to my toes
and every spot in between
ugh the madness of sexuality
I'm such a drama queen :)

Sarah, you're on to something . Mind blowing put's me right out every time.

Watching growth
Watching pain
Seeing joy
Seeing agony

Seeing me
Seeing you
Seeing her
What a paradox

Life is
Life was
Life will be
Life will not

We have
We have not
We do
We do not

We accept
We deny
We rely
We reject

Change happens
Change occurs
Accept change
Or die in the pain

Life or death?
Joy or Pain?
Serenity or Chaos?
You or them?

Is it really that hard to pick YOU?!

Heart and Soul

Just a whimper in the corner
not much...
a few seconds lost

A sometimes recoil
in sorrow,
in thought

A bigger spirit
pats her hand
and lands her feet

The output tear
watered seeds
Hope is sprung from these


A mother is brought to this when her child hurts...her faith and her strength help her, bring them through it all.
For all Moms do; for all you have endured, loved, missed, wished and got just right,


On May 9TH, 2010:
Happy Mothers Day

Today I forgive you for hating me
and playing dress up in my favorite dress,
although you used glitter glue and scissors
and turned my closet into one fine mess,
I forgive you for the ticks in your hair
from riding dirt bikes with the boys,
and all the food you shoved under beds
all mixed in with your toys,
I choose to remember the simple things
like the drawings I had on the fridge,
or how we'd get out of the car
while parked on the beach draw bridge,
I still enjoy braiding your long straight hair
and kissing your cheeks with my gloss,
or just giving you one of those quiet hugs
when words still come at a loss,
I am your Mother still even though
you two are so responsible and grown,
I do love you both so very much
even though I never answer my phone...
(for my Rox in the box and In Pandora's box)

The Food Chain

I am sitting in my rocking chair on my front porch.
It is a beautiful early morning.
I am sipping my morning coffee.
I am marveling at nature waking up.

Then, I notice something glittering
on the side of my wild rose bush.
It was sooooo cool.
A big spider was spinning a web
and there was morning dew on it.
Diamonds in action!

This whole process consumed me.
I watched the spider and it was amazing to watch.
Just how does it know to make everything so symmetrical?
It was art in motion to my eyes...

Then... out of nowhere a fly
Buzzes right into the web.
It tries to free itself and of course
by moving it gets stuck even more.

I am torn...
Should I try to "save" the fly?
From the spider's point of view
I am sure she sees lunch...
I am becoming an emotional mess!

Then, the fly is more and more entangled.
The spider does this backward forward motion
by crawling on the fly.

There is this epic battle going on and
Oddly enough, I remain silent.
I cannot look away.
I realize I must let nature run its course.
I am soooo torn...
The fly is desperate now,
The spider is practically doing the victory dance.

Then, from the corner of my eye,
I see Tiger, my huge tom cat.
He strolls towards me...
Rubs himself against me and
in his way, "tells" me he loves me.

THEN, the movement of the fly and the spider caught his eye.
He did these cute turns with his head
Sort of swaying it from side to side.
We both watched the epic battle going on.
Then, without any hesitation, nor any grace really,
My tom cat strolls towards the fly and the spider
And without any hesitation...
Swallows both of them in one big gulp!

He looks at me,
I have the deer in the headlights look
He looks at me and I swear I heard him say.
"What? Get over it... I'm a cat. I do cat things!"

He just walks aways from me,
Like nothing happened.
His tail straight up
Swaying, sort of waving goodbye.
I look at the broken spider web.
I have no idea why but
My heart swelled up and
Without thinking
I did the sign of the cross.

Dang... I need to go out more!...

Shaping

I tip my toe
in icy thoughts
of what to leave
of what I've got
and warm them
in decisive lots,
placed in plots
and plots and plots
Weeding this,
and tending that,
and tiling in
the widened gaps,
patting gently
narrowed rows
near the other
ones that grow
Of the ones too heavy,
left them to rain
down to the levy;
a mingling churn
into sliding sod
as I tend to those
meant from God
And, several times
I've checked my lots
And, years ahead
I'll plant my thoughts
And if my mind
will see them clear,
my elder age
may hold them dear
If, I am blessed
to see them clear



Just a quick mess'n around and reading some good stuff and saying hi :)

Mama's kisses

When the head is bumped
and tears fill the eyes
momma's kisses help to turn the tide

big fat juicy ones
right where it hurts
a little mini massage
for the baby's (something that rhymes with hurts)

I hold this one gift
up higher than all
taking away a child's pain
a true life saver when you are small

He must be getting sleepy
because he just bumped it again
have to cut this poem short
and give some more kisses to him
