|I search for the words to express how i feel for you.|
I don't feel there are enough words that will ever do
I am merely a human, with human words to speak.
Expressing these feelings i feel are what i truly I seek.
As i sit here trying to write this poem for you
I realize nothing even compares to how much i adore
I start a sentence and then have to erase once again
So now here i sit quietly and wonder how i begin
Do i speak of how beautiful your eyes shine?
Or how happy i am to know that you are mine.
Or do i try to explain how it feels to be in your arms
And how much i am lost in your wonderful charms.
Do i tell you how every time we touch I come alive.
It's your understanding of all these things that i strive.
Of how the passion explodes inside like a bomb
How being with you makes me feel tranquil and calm
I get lost every time i look into your eyes
And how from your love i would never hide
But how do i express these in the way i should
Oh my love how i truly wish that i could
How do i explain to you how i feel about it all
Of how into your arms i always wish to always fall
Or how i feel our souls are entwined as one
And how i believe that you truly are the one
There is only one word in which comes close
To explaining to you what i feel the most
And that is that i feel that we are soul mates
Forever and ever as one, this i feel is our fate
But alas it is merely a word that doesn't compare
To how much i love to run my fingers through your hair
Or how much i love to kiss your soft, tender lips
Or how much passion fills me when you touch my hips
All i can seem to muster are the words 'i love you'
And if you ever left me i would forever be blue
These words could never compare to what i feel
But I love you forever and i always will.

|Please forgive me oh great poetry writers of this forum, so sorry that i didn't realize that my poems weren't to be in different threads..i hope you all shall forgive my ignorance. I shan't post any more, since you don't bother to read or reply to them anyway.|

|People will reply in time, There are a lot of threads here, and some have their own specials. It's just the way it works...but welcome to poetry anyway...you know how temperamental writers can be??

and thanks for the compliment that means a lot. I wish i had known about the one thread thing, i would have done that.

how could you be so apathetic
when i have been so empathetic
and how is it you could be so cruel
to leave me sitting here like a fool
I don't think you see how much it hurts
when you shove my face down in the dirt
our friendship has lost all of it's strength
why do i bother going to these lengths
I'm tired of jumping through hoops of fire
i don't understand how this all transpired
you seem capable of walking away
i cannot do that, not even today
I'm lost without your understanding
and you've left me here, sadly standing
I am here lost in my profound thought
our friendship you've seemingly forgot

|thought I'd drop this one off for you. Like the write above...it is passionate and raw, nicely done!|
I've travelled many places,
from the blank and empty faces,
heard the sound of silence growing,
in an apathetic world.
I've heard the voice of reason,
with every change of season,
and the headline never changes
in an apathetic world.
At the closing of the doors,
I sweep the silence from the floors,
tomorrow I'll travel once again
in an apathetic world.

|Sometimes i wish i could run away|
If only for a little while, if only for a day.
Or perhaps to be gone for a week
A change of scenery i certainly seek.
Maybe i can run off to a far away land
Oh i know that you have to understand
I could go to the wharf and walk along the docks
and watch the sea gulls fly in flocks
I could go out and lay upon the beach
Oh yes, wouldn't that be a treat?
So many places that i could go
So many, many places, don't you know?
I could go to see the sunset over Japan
Or run off to some other far away land.
Maybe I'd go to the Colorado desert
And stop at some small diner for dessert.
I don't care where i go, just so you know
It takes me back to times so very long ago
When i only fantasized about all the places
Of how I'd see so many different faces
But somehow none of those changes the memories of you
You're still here on my mind and there's nothing i can do
Wherever i roam will not matter at all somehow
For i know, i can really see it all before me now.
I can wander off to lands like Germany
I can even run off and sail the high seas.
But that doesn't make your memory fade
Not even for a moment, not even for a day.
In my mind it's never places i really travel to
It's you i see, in everywhere i go and all that i do.
Nothing can change that image in my head.
Not even when i dream about you all night in my bed.
So running away will never ever solve a thing,
Especially not fixing the lost love that forever stings

|beautiful mandrake thank you :)|

|Thank you shadw...You are writing some very nice stuff here. Part of "marketing" strategy, is posting in other peoples threads, and inviting them to post in yours. Or just post in theirs and wait for a while for them to return the favor. Getting exposure helps a lot. Good luck.|

|It seems so simple |
yet so complicated
feeling slightly vendictive
bliss and despair
I'm feeling like i'm on a roller coaster
I'm stuck in some odd dream
voices inside my head begin to scream
I'm found but i'm lost
i'm beside myself yet upside down
I'm starting to feel like a clown
I stare at the wall
as tear drops start to fall
This one's kinda lame i guess but i still posted it in your thread mandrake, i just like it for some reason. Thank you for your advice and all, i appreciate it :)

|Do you ever wonder what it would be like|
If life were completely black and white?
Where there are no colors to differentiate
Or those gray areas which i truly hate.
No beautiful rainbows up in the sky
No worry or wonder or questions of why.
When there's no need for the red white and blue
Or having to contemplate what you need to do
And if there were no beautiful array of colors
Or no need to decide how to spend your dollars
What would we do without the different hues.
And wondering what exactly what we should do
What would it be like without shades of gray
Does anyone ever really long for that day?
And how sad would this life be without all of this
Ever wonder the magnitude of all there really is
In this world in which we seem to merely exist
Tis something to think about, i truly do insist.
This world, in all its beauty, is an immeasurable pleasure
For without it all, there would be nothing to treasure

|We once played tag on the playground together.|
Back then we felt that we would know each other forever.
But that time has gone and that time has past.
We have learned now that it would not last.
We spent time playing chase and four square.
But now we've learned life is not quite as fair.
We spend time now, walking down memory lane.
We have become what we are--no fortune or fame.
We dreamt of becoming doctors and lawyers and such.
But we see how these dreams did not add up to much.
We laughed and we played all day and every day.
But now here we are, our lives currently underway.
We went to football games and cheered loudly for our team.
Now we're just waiting for Friday so we can blow off steam.
Back then we laughed and played hard, as children always do.
Now with our own children underfoot we somehow muddle through
We look back now and vaguely remember so many wonderful things
It was strange back then to imagine just what our lives would bring.
We talk of what our lives have become and what goes on day to day
While in the back of our minds we still wonder about yesterday.
We played softball and football, occasionally we did our homework.
Now here we sit chatting after a long day of children and work.
We are surprised at all the faces we grew up with and are able to see
How everyone has changed, yet we are still the same to some degree.
So lucky we are to have all those great memories that we shared.
And all these people we once knew to remind us how we cared.
ok! so they are now all in one thread :)

|gerard, thank you for your kind words..and i'm pondering many thing as we speak yet do not speak such as this...|
but why should only one hear, one see and one welcome and one think or know. Why can't both hear each other, see each other, welcome one another and think and know of both??
Transferring this poem over from Gerard's thread:
Distance is relative
As is love and bliss
We long for closeness
A simple touch, a caress
Our minds bond
A unity of comprehension
it seems to be a delusion
Yet oh so grand
and fantasies dance within
Longing of passionate kisses
and fireside talks
But shall we dare
to traverse the unknown
and leave so much behind
to let our bodies intertwine
our thoughts spinning wildly
is it worth the contemplation
for a moment of bliss?

|but all of those things are about perception..and what you perceive may not be what i perceive. So alas, they are not the same, kind sir.|

|Ahhhhh ^^^^^^ Beautiful Shadw! Love it! I also just adore No.10, the one you placed on my thread...the one you expressed "you didn't like?" The important thing to remember...no one sees it the same way you do!|
It is about encouraging others, not judging them.
Posted: 3/18/2009 1:49:06 PM
|i know it is, but i honestly don't like to be encouraged if my works suck :p|

|she played her guitar until a quarter to three|
he said come on pretty baby won't you marry me
she stopped strumming, leaned back and looked up at him
she gave him a wink and then an evil little grin
as she sat up, she started playing that old guitar
she winked up at him as he walked to the bar
she laughed vehemently as he started to crack
he walked out the bar and he never looked back
since that day she continued playing her guitar
one day she promised herself she'd be a rock star
a few years gone now she's playing in a band
all the guys begged her for a one night stand
she'd look at them and give them that same evil grin
she swore no one would ever be able to pin her in
then one day that same guy from all those years ago
was standing front row center at her biggest show
she looked down at him as she started to cry
she realized now how many years had gone by
as he looked up at her it occurred to him
she was that same girl that gave him that evil grin
he looked at her in disbelief and headed for the door
it was hard to believe she was that girl he adored
she yelled out his name and the band ceased to play
she knew now that she could not let him walk away
what happened next, i could not believe my eyes
as he looked back at her and he started to cry
he did not speak a word he stared back and smiled
that look i know must have driven her half wild
she jumped from the stage and ran to where he stood
but he just stood there staring at her like a block of wood
she put her arms around him and he pulled away
it must have come as a surprise on that very day
he did not speak a word he merely started to laugh
the crowd watched in horror and let out a gasp
she fell to her knees as he walked out the door
she begged him please, he was the one she adored
but he was never seen again after that day
she realized all that was left is her passion to play
she grabbed her guitar as she hopped back on stage
never looking back at that fool that walked away

|My love, oh where, oh where have you gone.|
The mist surrounds as the day turns to dawn.
Oh how i miss hearing you sing our song.
And what have i done that is so wrong.
You seem to be here, but you're really not.
What happened to the lover i once sought
The battle for me, he so diligently fought
But now he's left me here, seemingly to rot.
When the mood strikes, the words flow from you.
But when it's gone, there seems to be nothing i can do.
Oh my God, please tell me this can't be true.
Don't you understand why it is that i am so blue?
Before you went away it was like a dream.
Now i lay in bed at night and want to scream.
Once it was you, but now to my pillow i do cling.
The words you now say cut so deeply they sting.
I stare longingly at our pictures upon the wall.
I lie awake each night just hoping that you'll call.
But your words seem so empty, that above all.
And with tear-stained eyes, onto the bed I do fall.
Further into the mist your memory is placed.
Another day i know i surely cannot face.
I am lost and broken in this horrible maze.
The memories of before I seemingly cannot erase.
So where, my love, have you gone away.
I hope this is not where you plan to stay.
I cannot take this, no darling, not one more day.
Please help me recall the blue skies and not the grey.
When will you ever come back to reality.
And see what it is you are doing to me.
Our love lays now in the dust, such a tragedy.
My heart now does start to break in all it's fragility.
Sitting here in a daze looking out the window i do stare.
So when will this all end and when will you dare.
And when will you start to again act like you truly care.
My heart feels the danger and continues to cry out, "Beware!"
My friends all look sadly at me and with such worry.
When will you realize that i don't want you to be sorry.
God, I really need you right now, i pray that you hurry.
But here i sit again with my eyes tear-stained and blurry.
I try hard to find things to do so i don't fall asleep.
I sit now with the lines you have written, in a heap.
My heart is lost to you, I'm in this now way too deep.
And how I long to return to the day that we did meet.
I try to find something that can ease this pain.
I am not sure why this is happening again.
So i go for a walk, and oh look, here comes the rain.
I feel like our love is now spiraling down the drain.
It's your reassurance that i continually seek.
As a single tear rolls down my cheek.
The outcome to all of the love we shared is now bleak.
And baby you know it's you i long for to speak.
But alas, you have forgotten all the words to say.
The ones that ease this all, make it go away.
And I know, not longer now will you stay.
Yet the return of the love we shared, i sadly do pray.

|your words are very touching, thank you so much for the compliments. I am glad someone finally appreciates my poetry. Been trying to get people to pay attention for years but no one ever does lol thanks again :)|

|To Ogre With Love|
There is nothing that can be said to make this pain go away.
I thought you'd have changed by now and our lives still be underway.
But you were and are too drunk to see, all the hurt you have caused me.
And now it's just the memories of your abuse that won't let me be.
It makes me angry that the love we once shared has turned to dust.
But nothing changes the disdain that i feel, your absence is a must.
I constantly wonder what happened to what we once had.
It leaves me feeling lost, alone, confused and very sad.
I'm truly not sure how someone changes the way you did.
Me living a life was something you would always forbid.
Animosity seeps through my soul like water into a sponge
I guess now it seems that maybe you were just too young.
You hurt me repeatedly, always pushing me around.
But somehow through it all, my strength i have found.
It took me time to see the real you and embrace reality
If only i had seen before, your state of mind and ogreish mentality.
I'm glad now that is a life I've left far behind me
And that i was able to be strong and able to see
I know now i was better than what you gave
It's hard to conceive that i always forgave
So much pain and anguish you caused along the way.
I'm so thankful i was strong enough to walk away.
I know now that i deserved so much better than you.
And I'm so very thankful to those who knew it too.
Posted: 3/19/2009 10:04:29 PM
|shadow..thanks so much..i'm completely speechless. Your poem is very beautiful also. Thank you for reading my poems. That means more to me than you know.|
Like diamonds dancing in the sky
No rhyme or reason as to why
Their splendor is surpassed by none
Oh how i love each and every one
I stare up at them at night
As i lay basking in the moonlight
A treasure left for all to see
I watch and embrace their beauty
How gloriously they do shine
And feel a passion in this heart of mine.

|My goodness ShadwGrrl...I am so happy I could not sleep and poked around the forums a bit! |
I have seen your lovely work here and there but now that you have them together I spent a good time reading.....and enjoying!
You can tell your heart is in you writing....it's raw and it's real...wonderful!
Sometimes you look for treasure
sometimes it finds you
what a gift to keep company with
when walking through a worded garden
eating of the fruit of truth
or to color an imagined thought
or to gain an insight of a feeling
coming from a poets chest of treasure
Posted: 3/19/2009 11:34:11 PM
|awesome.. you all are so wonderful here, i'm glad i started posting my poetry here :)|

It's so very hard to believe
That it's your birthday today.
But now you've gone away
So many things left to say.
For most, the memories relieve
I guess it's not the same for me
Memories just keep haunting me
When will they just leave me be?
So many years i have grieved.
You hurt way more than you know.
The pain cuts me to the bone.
Here i am and now you're gone.
So why did you abandon me?
Was i not the child you expected?
Is that why you left me neglected?
I always felt so rejected.
I guess it was not meant to be.
Miss the father i never had.
It's left me here alone and sad.
Why were you always so mad?
It's just so hard to conceive.
My love for you, it still remains.
Though you've only brought me pain.
I'm not sure how I've stayed sane.
The memories try to deceive.
The game you played is over with.
Memories linger and i do miss.
Unsure why you hit with your fist.
Why could we never just coexist.
Posted: 3/20/2009 12:39:46 AM
|I look at your picture and i just wanna cry|
Why must i be without you, alone and wondering why
days go by and i stop and think of you
wondering, waiting, hoping..not sure what to do
time consumes everything that i do, everything i see
your image feels my head and sadness rushes through me.
Without you near i don't feel whole, i don't feel right
I send up another prayer, another wish for you tonight
What do i do without my precious angel?
Why did they go and take you in anger...
Do you know how much i love you? How much i need you?
Did you know that i will always cherish you?
I miss you so much, you are my lil angel boy
Why do they play these games, treat you like a toy?
Just know that i'm always there in your heart,
and when you're alone and scared please remember that's where to start.
Don't forget me while we're apart, please don't give up this fight.
Time may pass, but i will always love you so
my lil angel boy, i just needed you to know.
