they say
the grass is always greener
on the other side
but I think
its like pushing daisies down

when i was two
i climbed up the steps
i wanted to get higher
leaving the steps

a snow is enveloping
a white dusting on an unused region
buds curl
waiting to unfurl
deep inside the trees

i want to go back to the grass
i want to climb that first step
i want to see spring
and know
that it is coming

i cried in the new grass
i cried on the first step
i cried when
the leaves changed colours.
and deeply, i moved...

I was a blind fool
singing in the rain
never complained
I was the one with the world at my feet

Just had to create a battle
leave it up to me
where it is and where it stops
nobody knows

I tried to give you a life
that you never chose
i wanna leave
but the world won't let me go

Do i pose a threat
or does my proposal
make you feel right
do you think you'll have regret
things between you and me have changed
relight broken candles
ignite the flame
no shame for the passion we claim

i may be crazy with dates
and crazy for redoing mistakes
but never have i felt
like loving you came with any bit of doubt

i want to show you a love no woman has known
something to sing about when your feeling just right
at night alone in the shower
while you gather you thoughts
let the hot water massage out the knots
let your troubles
disappear in the bubbles

HEY JVA hope you have a good 1st Wednesday xx

This is the first day of my life
I swear I was born right in the doorway
I went out in the rain suddenly everything changed
They're spreading blankets on the beach

Yours is the first face that I saw
I think I was blind before I met you
Now I don’t know where I am
I don’t know where I’ve been
But I know where I want to go

And so I thought I’d let you know
That these things take forever
I especially am slow
But I realize that I need you
And I wondered if I could come home

I thought it was strange you said everything changed
You felt as if you'd just woke up
And you said “this is the first day of my life
I’m glad I didn’t die before I met you
But now I don’t care I could go anywhere with you
And I’d probably be happy"

So if you want to be with me
With these things there’s no telling
We just have to wait and see
But I’d rather be working for a paycheck
Than waiting to win the lottery
Besides maybe this time it is different
I mean I really think you like me

wedding gown brown
twenty four hours
what a difference a day makes
from a warm home that is doting
love as true as the soil on my shoes
to a bed that is moldy
in your cold heart
share that box
with the bum by the ocean
make your mother proud
hide behind fears
like a shroud
head high in the clouds
you tell me the truth
why not be honest with yourself
you see the parallels
never compare
i am in love
and he is a thief in your lair

I don't know what i did, but i want you to be happy!

The longer we wait around
The faster the years go by

It's not too late
To feel a little more alive
Make an escape
Before we start to vaporize

Reluctance, we've been through this
So if you want to follow me you should know
I was lost then but I am found now
I don't doubt the way things should go

When common fears start to multiply
We realize we're paralyzed
Where did it go, All that precious time?
Did we even try to stem the tide?

Why should we waste it on
Buying into the same old lies?

So I wonder in the night
my heart wanders in the light
free and open in this dream
air clean and water pristine

Rankle voices call

"Come on and get the minimum
Before you open up your eyes
It's all being served in your hands
Are you one of us
Come on and get your open doors
Collected at the borderlines
free up you space
release the tension in your face"

I go down to wait all night
She's bound to run me out
The rest of nothing new of any how
To each his own
The garden has been sorted out
She curls her lips on a bar
i don't know if you're read
can you figure what I talk about?

Tropical, I loved the poem, "hearing with your inner ear".

For Cam...(autism)

I know you know you are different
I feel it in your eyes
I hear it your voice
I hear it when you say
"Mom, there is something wrong with my brain."

Preciousness is perceived
with miniscule points of matter
I wish I could reach you
cool away dwarf stars
my radiant beautiful sun/son

I refuse to lose you to this disease
that sets you apart
and worms into your brain
your delight in the new can shatter the world
with breathtaking vibrancy

You are like
the sun rising on the Serengeti
perfect snowflakes in Canada
the warmth that reaches my bones
the soul song of patience and learning

love beyond all reason
love beyond all fear
tattooed on my heart
you come to me and ask
yes, Cam, I will give you a massage

oh e....a parting blessing for you.....
may your spirit soar as you explore all that's to be as you fly free
and may your writing continue to create wordscapes so exquisitely!
from one who felt your inspiration gratefully,

um, well, i am a chic!

yeah, i'm having fun!

guess you gotta be an old fart like me to understand why.

it's just pleasurable coming across threads where there is all this really really great poetry. i like poetry. and i really appreciate people who do it well, with sincere thoughts and insights.

some one else started doing it, NOT me. then someone else did it and the person who was gone for a long time came back - Mandrake, isn't he wonderful????? so i did it and casheyesblonde came back, albeit she only said hi, but maybe she'll reconsider and start posting. I loved marisam's thread, it was just so mesmerizing, a person's life and soul was there, it meant something to me, her thread was simply a wonderful experience, like this one------.i guess it just would be nice if some of the poets who still have active profiles came back, they had so much to add, i think they wrote good poetry. i guess it's all very personal ------. i'm a lonely stupid old lady and have nothing better to do. so sue me, this time i branched out to someone who isn't around anymore, it's still a great thread, has great poems with a unique voice. sigh. oh well. i'm not trying to annoy you yanno?

warning, going to keep looking back, there were so many people in these threads who were just amazing. Sunnoir (spelling?) comes to mind, lots others

comfort is a place
unusual to me
I spend my time
alone; where only
I can see.
So hidden in the trees
my life flies by like rain
unseen by memories
it all seems so insane!
I wonder what it is;
I am doing thats so wrong.
I feel perfectly sane,
I feel amazingly strong.
All of the outsiders;
those that call me friend
Think I am deranged ;
cuzz messages i dont send!
I have so much to do myself;
I rarely ask for help.
They wonder if I'm cwazy...
but I just dont like to yelp!
My life is just how I want it,
lots of modifications goin on.
I am trying to get it all emerged,
but I seriously wonder myself!
Someday It will be all spit and shine!:)
I will have my art room, and practice kung fu!
Until then just give me time to grow...
I am like a fungus...
you know!? lmao :)
