My heart beats like the wings of a moth
Sputtering against a summer streetlight
All the neighborhood children have been called in for the night
Their hungry stomachs grumble like monsters
Fighting eachother beneath the dining room table
The television buzzes in the living room
Like a swarm of bees
Just waiting to escape their electrically powered prison
My heart beats like the wings of a moth
Trapped and sputtering against a solitary winters moon

The autumn leaves have left so soon...
I feel such beautiful solitary passion
When Im alone and walking these snow covered hills
Such serenity only exists ...when the world is frozen still

The sun pulls back the clouds,like a soft white quilt
My golden egyptian princess rises again from the cold slate colored hillside
Restless and on fire,from her midnight star strewn sleep
Full of energy and promises in the daylight she must keep
The field flowers become laminated in softest yellow gold
Rose petals weep with dew,and then slowly unfold
The sun beckons me softly away from my sleep
With sultry warm fingers that reach me in beams
My sun drenched skin unleashes sultry thoughts
Of loves that came to pass...with the kiss of warmth upon me
melting through lifes looking glass
Everything it touches
Is set in fiery glow

Im overcome by twighlights beauty,
And all the promises it holds

I feel like a child just learning to walk
To breathe, and to think,how to love, and to talk
The difference now is so easy to see
As the rain slowly lifts there is brightness within me
The stars they fall shallow,and rest in my heart
Like a box full of treasures where memories start
They say theres true beauty that emanates from within
Where does your soul end
And my heart begin?The friendship the feelings
my piece of the sun
Lifes road somehow veered and showed me the one
Who makes me feel something that once was denied
The woman grew up,where once the little girl cried
I feel like a child,so come for a walk
Im learning to breathe,and to love and to talk
Weve freed up those angels
The sun soon will rise
So lets drift to dreamland with love as the prize
Weve found forever as night slowly dies
And lulls us to sleep with loves sweet lullabye

A poem dedicated to my beautiful Grandmother.....

Old Photographs in the attic~~

Spending time alone in the attic
I try to touch my feelings
They shrink away like paper tigers
Trapped under water
Black and white photographs
Of someone elses memories
Black and white eyes
Cant quite capture the essence of the way
Im told her she really sparkled
Faint and distant memories of mine
Fill in all her wonderful colors
She had a Mona Lisa smile,and dark almond eyes like my mothers
Posing in her light blue silk sunday dress
The breakfast table where she sipped her tea
With quiet ladylike confidence
Her sincerity strength and love
Somehow escaped the lens of the camera
Technology missed her colors
My imagination reaches out a timeless artists brush
To fill them in where her life left off
Someone will remember she sparkled that way
She used to spend hours alone in the attic
Looking through her hope chest
The place her sacred memories rest
Surrounding me in warmth
Like a blue silk sunday dress
As I reach to sip my tea
With ladylike elegance
Such tenderness,strength,and love I feel
Yet it somehow seems to have escaped the lens of the world
Technology has replaced so many of its colors
I will fill them in with love as I go along
I will remember

Feel free to post anything you like...Im hoping to see a bunch of different thoughts and writing styles in here.Its a free for all woo hoo!LOL

My soul reaches out to feel
The remnants of my smiling eyes
All the pictures and stories Ive ever heard
Frozen by your words
I want someone to reach me
Touch that existant part of me
free up my stories forgotten with time
Place a kiss on my tear salted lips
Parting like the Red sea
In waves of self expression
Like smiling eyes
Another day so softly dies
I wont cry
ill savor these emotions
Like a natural high
I can no longer pretend
I cant force my heart to bend
filling darkened empty corners
Where no voices are heard
frozen with a word
Ive given in
Just enough to need
These dreams I wear like a necklace of stars
around my neck
The ones Id die to love and protect
I want to move someone to tears with emotion
Give new definitions to love and devotion
Sleep softly with smiling eyes
Entraptured by your lullabyes
Savor all the songs Ive heard
Frozen with a word

My Tears Know Him
Posted: 7/6/2005 3:08:18 PM

Older painful memories clashing
Combating inside my pounding head
Stained-glass window of the past
Yet, etched in tarnished tints instead
Light still shines through darker on some
Reminding me constantly of their existence
These times drain me of all other feelings
With their unvarying resentful persistence
For now I wait as colors lighten in time
Gradually the healthier ones overpower
Then new life emerges from within
Budding like a fresh spring flower

I stare in amazement at the wonder in your eyes,
Getting lost into their mysterious depth,
Wondering what secrets they hold,
Or how much pain they've been through.

Could I be the one to take that pain away?
Or would you shoo me off like you did the rest,
My heart is fragile, but it's full of love,
Hopefully you will be gentle with me.

Don't break my heart for I shall never get over you,
You could be my one true love,
So hold on to me and never let me go.

hadn't been on most of the day, just thought of that at the top of my head. had an internet problem earlier. not bad for comin back with really nothing to write about. lol

This poem also appears in The poetry contest thread by Cats

The summer painted the world in all her favorite colors
Everyday people Turned into egyptian princesses
With skin the color of the rarest bronze jewels
The trees were adorned with crowns of emeralds
Reaching their branches like arms tward the Heavens
As if this were an offering to God
Such beauty,such splendor
My sweet angel remembers
The smell of fire saturating her party clothes
Hair fluttering about her shoulders
Like a halo of worshipping butterflies
And the sweet cotton candy smells of summers past
As she kissed her daughters rosy cheeks
She recalls running down a beach of white pebbles,Lucky stones she called them....
And when she reached the tall field grass,it grabbed her ankes like ropes
Freezing each step,if only for a moment.
Everyone has their time to dance
The world becomes hushed
As an orchestra of crickets begins their first concerto
She is their only audience,and for now....
She is all that matters
He watches her from a distance and wonders if she misses him
Her world is so full of friends and flowers,
Boquets collected along lifes winding pathways
But her life has so many turns
Like a ballerina shes always twisting and turning
If she spends too much time alone
She might realize she misses him so.
Everyone has their time to dance
For now,she is a ballerina on the beach
As the waves crash in giving her a thunderous round of applause

Thank you Poet..That was very lovely

This poem is dedicated to a dear friend of mine who inspired my love of classical music

Mozart,Beethoven and Bach

Your unspoken hearts passions glide effortlessly over the keys
Fluttering fingers,like heavens breath on angels wings
Let me listen and become entranced
By the melodic sounds of your heart
And all that it encapsulates
As it breathes lifes fire into mine
Our souls hold hands through the timelessness of music
I am captivated,and enchanted beyond the moment,beyond the stars
I become more eternal as you weave your spellbinding tapestry
Your genius wraps around me,as fingers dance from key to key
Play your thoughts and deepest emotions for us to see
The music melts into me,becoming such a part forever
Music is such an inspiring lover
I am not one,without the other
It touches me in places noone else can
Reaching inward beyond what the world cant see
In perfect,timeless tapestry

this just fell from heaven too ...LAST stanza
Posted: 7/7/2005 1:59:42 AM
A silent song of prayer breaks through the shadowy darkness
I am standing at the edge of a honey colored field
Waiting for the sun to illuminate this quiet darkened chaos
The hours pass by like friends
With someplace else they need to be
If you could see with the same eyes Ive tattooed with my most private thoughts
You'd have a better grasp on whats its like to burn a pathway through the darkness
Night vision.Like roses drinking in blood collected on their spiney thorns
A painful lesson in protecting what is beautiful and free
I am sleeping at the edge of a honey colored field

I wish I had your arms for comfort
But instead Im being held by a cold grey tree
Theres always somewhere else we all need to be
To find our unknown destiny
But these thoughts keep crowding me in bed
As the tired world keeps clouding
This sleepy poets head
Ill be here waiting for the sun to rise above
All this quiet darkened chaos
At the edge of a honey colored field

Thanks again to all my old and new friends who posted here today..MWAH!Love you all

What kind of drug are you on?
is that your idea of fun?

a book becomes a bird..
a sound that makes no word

I see you fall to pieces
and you still don't find your releases

I don't want you to spiral down
You think it's fun to drown?

I want to help you please
This is a sick disease

Take my hand before it's too late
don't leave it up to your fate.

If I could cry enough tears I would
Please stop I think you should.

No one wants to see you hurt.
don't yell at me.. don't be curt.

no more running no more fear.
For you I am always here..

In perfect,timeless tapestry (words that fell from heaven)
Posted: 7/7/2005 5:09:07 AM
I sit here fighting off the chills,
Thinking of how many wonderful thrills,
I could receive from him that night,
That would be a wonderful sight,
He leans over and gives me a kiss,
That puts me in a heavenly bliss,
My body becomes numb,
My heart beating like a drum,
He slaps my bumm and up we run,
Into my room to have some fun,
He removes my clothes and begins to stare,
At me standing there naked and bare,
I remove his clothes and begin to look,
He looks like a page right out of a book,
Our bodies are filled with passion unmeasured,
But being with him is something to be treasured,
He lays me down upon my bed,
And places a pillow under my head,
We make love until we begin to sweat.

Sry fell, I didn't mean to heat things up in here. Just something off the top of my head again this morning before I have to head into work. Figured you could enjoy that. hehehe.

Mist hangs delicately in the air
I am home
Ageless and inpired by the warm glow of sunsprays,tugging at my heart like puppet strings made of spun gold
Waves crash thunderously in my mind,washing it completely clean
Dont let the darkness find me..I just need one more moment in the sun
My eyes reach out twards the light
Reflecting my irridescant hopes upon the water
So many tears Ive fought off,in waves of inspirational rebellion
I am a fighter
Welcome to my world,where there are no doors to block the screams of angels
No windows to reflect the sun away from me
No walls to stop my singing,or my voice from being heard
The artist painted another lovely sunset
We can erase it from our minds
But it always comes back
Rain will never wash it away or dull its divinely inspired colors
Im waiting patiently for the stars to return
Tiny flecks or silver incandescant flecks of dust
against the black canvas of the midnight sky
So many thoughts,but never enough reasons
Our lives spin around,and rotate like the seasons
Mist hangs softly in the air
I remain ageless in this play on words
Bathing me in soft sunlight
Welcome to my world of sweet remembrance
