flying with zoey
so much happiness
reading your words
a glimpse of granny'ness
and view of your bliss
so heart warming
again this morning
remembering
my own flying
upon a swing
imagining on the big one
reaching to touch heaven
feeling the wind whip my hair
powerful energy in the air
and when i was not so young
my brothers daring me to jump
to jump even when it was so high
to jump and really fly through the sky
so i'd gather my courage
for of course i felt fear
but i trusted my brothers
even from way up there
and i'd let myself go
and jump when they said so
sometimes i'd roll
but mostly i'd land
standing in the sand
feeling the exhiliration
feeling the elation
of my body moving through air
flying free as a bird
just like zoey i heard
shared so lovingly
and beautifully sunshiney!

Fluffy things
Like the warm lint from a dryer
Fluffy things
Like clouds that just go higher and higher

Sweet things
Like the innocence of a 2 year old's kiss
Sweet things
Like the persona of lover's bliss

Dark things
Like the shutting of the door
Dark things
That make women feel like whores

Morbid things
Like flesh rotting from the bone
Morbid things
Like knowing you'll never return home

But we all likes the fluffies
So I will spit a few on out
We all love the fluffies
So here's a few more to think about

Watermelon
Orange Pez candy
Convicted felons
Rape de la statutory
Shit
got back on
the scary stuff again
Oh well,
I tried
I wish you the best my friend.

Seaz, Sunshine, Weare, and Sarah...thankyou all for sharing your words.

Seems like a quiet night in the forums.
Like a cat on a hot tin roof
hanging back, perhaps aloof!
staring through the window pane,
beaded eyes begin to strain,
singing to the virgin bride,
you can run, but you can't hide!
I'll start to purrrrrr
and lik your furrrrr,
while the night is young.

I think about these people
And their plastic surgery
How they just can't be satisfied
To be able to walk and breathe

Then I see one of the souls
That didn't quite come out right
And their eyes are joyous
The fears calm
No need to scratch and fight

Like my nose is too big
Or my boobs too small
Maybe my stretch marks aren't pretty
But I really don't care
cuz after all

There is true suffering in the world
Mangled and beaten boys and girls
Who can't walk, don't cry
Have never lived, and will probably die
Alone, being cared for
By someone other than their family
God Bless those souls that keep them
Someday true riches they will reap

And I see the ads
For a peel or a stick
And I think what a dumbass thing to do
Really takes a selfish ****

Not to sit down
and thank Him everyday
Instead of trying to "correct"
The plans He already laid...

Sarah, love your words. Very nice flow.

Seaz, wonderful write, lovely use of words...and simple truths!

Riding the wooden horse,
with his holy grained nostrils,
flared unto the cross,
his stained glass eyes
glaring red,
raising the undead,
from the sea
of lechery,
chomping at the bit
of his unbridled tongue,
biting off a sermon
to old and young,
bucking against the saddle,
his mane flying
in Godspeed!

I used to wake up early... back when I could sleep. But I tell you my dreams are so vivid, it's hard for me to keep

a steady mind
half the time
but I manage
the treacherous climb

And spin out
Only when needed
The rest of the time
My garden is seeded

With outrageous ideas
Silly examples
Of life without a leash
That only a handful

Of souls
ever get
To truly experience

But you are one of them
And to that
I say damn

It's hard to think
Of a special enough word
That rhymes with experience
Has one ever been heard??

For in fact
No other noun nor adjective
Can explain
the experience of common lives
hard spent

On tragedy
shame
guilt and remorse

Or perhaps triumphs
Things I know a little of

So as you can see
Doesn't matter how high I be
I can keep spitting them out
Oh, no, there is no doubt

That if you listen to me rattle
You must be a bit off the saddle

And so I bid goodnight
Hope you've had a lovely time
reading the madness within my mind
See you again when the beer's flowing right...

In the quiet of the night
When there is no light
Coming through windows and doors
I find myself walking the floor
Fighting the demons in my head
I long for the comfort of my bed
Inside my head the struggle is deep
Why can’t I get to sleep
Then the angel appears
Speaking so softly so clear
Telling me all will be well
Not to listen to the voices from hell
They do not foretell what the future will bring
And to let go of everything
Go back to sleep
And when the morning arises a friend will appear
His heart pure and his need dear
He will touch your soul
And then you can let go
Begin to feel, to want, to need again
Thanks for my friend

Designers Touch

Loving her with the architecture of glasnost,
it was never feast or famine,
nor a lament of transcendance,
Ahhh, to be lost in the metaphysical
realm, unforseen the tragedy
of Armageddon, releasing a feather
on her ascent, and tears gracefully touch
at the crossing, kissing the final act
of goodbye, as the curtain closes
to a dark stage
of melancholy,
in one last breath,
releasing his love,
to accompany her
on the journey.

Tangled in a web I weaved
With an attempt to deceive
My heart, my soul
To deny what's felt deep inside
In an attempt to push all aside
In an attempt to hide
Let down the walls
Go ahead, take the fall
One never knows
What truly lies below....
Go ahead....let go

Rising up

Trampled down in the ground-stained glass
that stands them millimeters above the earth
is the dust that still hovers in the alive places
where lost scared souls shuffle heavy feet
as their heads look up, not to the heavens
but to the changed skyline of bewilderment
Loss of controlled choices and veiled safety,
clean-slate their faces, opening eyes wider now;
taking in a lifetime in a moment of not understanding
Then the sober rise up and say,
"Remember the blessings, remember the beatings"
Through opposing forces, cores are stunned
but there is a clinched fist in the core of the meek
It faces what looms over and blackens
and with a collected breath of all who call, Enough!
they fill their boughs with wind of change
and blow the choking dust away, in blood and song
.....I must stop watching the news
but they would say, please... watch




...and on that, I say good night lol....will spend the weekend on a sunny beach. Thank God I can~

wow...these writings have so much power!
this is lighter...written in a last line 8 line, but just realized it could be here....



what love's flames abide
stoke the fires that keep us alive
stroke the embers that sometimes hide
creating the state where love can thrive

for here we are by the fireside
loving with passion overflowing inside
escaping the crazy rollercoaster ride
rising and falling like the ocean tide

Yellow flowers
with periwinkle lace
fall around
and begin to grace
the sitting ducks
as they molt

Dust
feathers
downy soft moments
fall to the ground
and become one with the Earth

A horse mane
flowing in the wind
reminds me of
that special friend

feet black
with garden muck
red night
poking up
from the grainy mess

rambling lines
that make no sense
to anyone
but me and him

Subliminal seduction,
glazed eyes whispering
the dance of intimacy,
sparks shedding their skins,
igniting in a flame of passion,
eyes closing,
lips searching lips,
tongues writhing,
Blossom unfolding,
inviting the staff
of pollination.

Congrats mi amiga!
Su amor es bonito
It is wonderful to find
in the midst of the bore
a gem or two
Too bad you're on opposite shores.

But, hey
it can happen
geographic boundaries do not define love

And, who knows
Maybe this one
Is truly sent from Heaven above

Jut wanted to say
what a lovely write
And hope all is well with you and yours
Keep those eyes shining bright!

Forgive and the journey begins
first self, first self

Held the bars of the cage too long
, seen a road and dream meld

The soul breaking free
is a soft flutter sound

I see her chrysalis
...and I'll be around




....for someone dear~

Entry for July 13, 2009

I really need to take a nap
But I've too much to do
Just a teeny weeny nap
Now what harm could that do?

Because even if I stay awake
I will probably just sit here on the net
Never accomplishing hardly any
Of the goals I so readily set

Not huge ones
Like end world hunger
Or some whacked out shit
Just to do dishes
Clean an apartment
And rearrange my house a bit

But I'm sleepy and want to rest
I really think it would be best
If I shut my eyes for just a moment
Allow myself some peace and quiet

That's the thing about life
You never have enough time
To be healthy and complete
Only to stay on your feet
And half-ass everything
Just to keep it running
Half ass love life
No hope of knowing

Whether or not
I will get any help
Even an orgasm these days
Is too hard to get away
with
because
I
am
a
prude???

Nah

Just can't get all freaky
Right off the bat
And there's absolutely
nothing wrong with that

For it takes time
to break barriers down
Unless you're one of those people
Who hardly ever wears a frown

But I do
I scowl
I think
I race
I see
that if I continue this mess
It won't make any sense
As if it ever did
To begin with

Ending a sentence
IN a preposition
With no period
is not ending
a sentence
with a preposition

Stopping by for a cleansing breath of wonder.

- - - - - -
The most fabulous last dance rain fall
Through deep grey atmosphere
Highlighting all the garden greens
Its own rumbling splashy music
Carrying away all those musty old thoughts
This could've been one helluva hot day!
Picking up the oars
I'll row my way there
Getting a good sized half price drink...

Wow!!

Seaz, Sarah, BKS, Expat...you all have been busy in my absence! Such a beautiul collection of spirits written in the heart language! Thank you one and all for keeping the embers glowing!

How I long
for a feral sea,
to hear it's roar
as it beckons me.

How I long
for a feral moon,
and the distant call
of flute and loon.

This one may hurt the eyes a bit

Fire
and Ice,
nervous sweat
Roses and wine
Cherries and whip cream
Handcuffs and shiny things
Escalation through deprivation
Of the humanity we all deserve
Do we deserve to be treated as much
more than a whimsical fantasy unrealistic
completely powerless over desires only truly
psychotic women would bother to dream after all
this is not the time when such flightless observations
Can be molded into one satisfying, toe-curling, melting into
the experience as I float away, unafraid, relaxation
overtakes the dying need to continue without my
heartless murder of another soul's desire why
must I try to do something so cruel, such
a damn fool, I've always been still yet
I crave him, inside me, surrounding
every inch and making me feel
as if I were not in control
therefore not the least
bit responsible for
the ache I feel
he knew I
loved
him

Sometimes I lie
Just a little
Little white lies
don't hurt anyone...

Sometimes I tell men I feel things
For them like none other
Sometimes three seconds into it
I show their picture to my mother

Practically all the time
I am absorbed in thought
Wanting just one more kiss
A day to spend
where no one can see...

I spill out my heart
And profess my undying want
It eats at me
I wish it were gone
and I were happy alone

But, I'm not that strong
no need to carry on
pretending that I'm a liar
When I know I felt the fire
From the moment I saw
That hair
But that's crazy anyways, right?
No need for such foolishness
who really has time

To chase their dreams
Against the current I row
And you love me for it
But are afraid to let it show

So I will not bother
to try to explain
for if I'm right
about what's in my heart
Then it will happen
anyways...

Of course,
I forgot
Can't believe a word I've said
For I already told you
right from the start
I lie a little,
these lies are dead.

psycho biyatches are a dime a dozen, but crazy poets are way more fun ;);)
