I Leave You A Kiss

I leave you a kiss
On the pillow where you lay your head
Since I cannot, it must kiss you instead
And I hope it will whisper sweetly
The words I have folded neatly
In its lavender scented weave
That I cannot say- because I must leave

I leave you a kiss
In your silverware drawer, on a spoon
Hoping it will kiss you sometime soon
With your honey and cereal for breakfast
Or a bowl of ice cream's frozen mist
When you catch a moment's reprive
But try to forget I had to leave

I leave you a kiss
On the pocket of your shirt
In case you ever get hurt
Or to ease your broken heart
In the time that we're apart
Every time you chance to grieve
When you remember I had to leave

I leave you a kiss
Just hanging in the airyou 
Walk by and it will meet you there
Just stand by my dresser and kiss it
Or if you happen to miss it
It will sweeten your dreams at night
Making them pleasant and bright
Making you almost believe
That I never had to leave

{By Isaiah Zerbst for the contest The Poet II. Submitted on 9/10/14. Theme: Leave You A Kiss}

I have got to go

For the piles of promises that were broken
And the avalanche of lies that were spoken

I have got to go, you know I've got to go

I have got to leave the lock of your arms
And escape from the spell of your charms

I have got to go, you know I've got to go

What we had was sweet while it lasted
But now it looks like our time was wasted

I have got to go, you know I've got to go

Goodbye Granddad

Gravity pulls my tears into pools.
Im sinking in sorrow -emotional fuels. 

Just turn back the time, I just want a moment. 
To say goodbye once, to cherish and own it. 

I loved my granddad - a man more than great.
Paired with my Granny as the perfect mate. 

A montage of memories that rush my soul.
My eyes fill with tears, I'm losing control. 

Just keep it together, it's what he would want. 
They all say the same, but I stand in front. 

Happiness swells, yet sadness prevails.
Like Christ on the cross, with hands full of nails. 

Life has a reason, and death isn't treason.
-It's moving on up.. A lifetime's a season. 

I look to the sky and say my goodbye.
The time won't turn back, I gave it a try. 

I close my eyes and imagine this-
Paradise in a place full of bliss. 

World peace in a piece of the world.
Without loss and bombs never hurled. 

Snow that falls that doesn't freeze.
Sun that shines that doesn't cease. 

A land where "The forever" is real.
A scene where the sick always heal.

Life with infinite love, like gusts in the wind.
Two little doves, with eternities to spend. 

God has a plan, fool-proof to the core. 
Now Granddad's with him, a reward of much more. 

-Yours Truly

He's Sexy and you Know it

When I read your words they hurt a lot
Some men are men some others are not

Perhaps sex appeal he doesn't lack
With his power women take him back

He's a women hater of the worst kind
He lives to play his games with womens minds

Telling you somehow you are not enough
Through his dark lies you re-live some bad stuff

Yet in the end you come to realize
This bad boy is a devil in disguise

When you reject him he falls to his knees
You see the real him he is a disease

He never deserved you just walk away
For in the end you have the final say


Inspired by Becca's poem "No longer will she agonize"

My Perfect 10

If I picked my Valentine
she'd be a perfect 10.
She'd have blonde hair with highlites
and answer where and when.

She'd be a little shorter,
yet tall enough to kiss.
Her reach a little longer
to torture us in bliss.

Her shape would be the bomb.
As sexy as they come.
With hair up for the moment
I'd meet her at the prom.

She'd talk a little faster
with words I'd say are smart.
Yet keep me to attention
in hugs up to my heart.

A smile just like a lion.
Her face a source of pride.
One to show my mother.
And then to make my bride.

My Valentine was perfect
as I lost her way back then.
How was I to know that she
would find her perfect 10.

Aero Medical Institute

Where we muster and flock as assimilator,
To imbibe the noesis as accumulator,
O’er this institute majestically,
And to nutrify our thirst magnificently,

Where we summon our metier and furnish,
Skills with the optimistic savvy and burnish,
The alpha knowledge of our profession,
And to inwrought our mind with passion ,

Where we unitely ascertain and acquisition,
The basics of our instinctive disposition,
As to acquire mere about pallor,
Worth millions of dollar,

Where we arrive and depart,
And fill empty spaces or apart,
Of our noddle so this fit as fiddle,
To solve and alleviate the medical riddle,

This comes veridical to Aero Medical Institute,
An organisation of infinite magnitude,
Of ethics, courage, bravery and fortitude,
So I pen and pays tribute and gratitude.

A Leaf That Falls On A Summer's Day

A leaf that falls on a summer day
Departs from the branch with so much glee;
It gently floats without a sound
Before it touches to the ground.

Its days are over even a dumb could tell
That time has consumed its chlorophyll;
Yet when it sprouted and grew so green
The trunk would ask her for nourishment.

A leaf that cares not for fame at all
Though on top of others when a tree stands tall;
Yet what it does is not a complex role
That a man should learn it in the school.

If any man’s life be so a likened
To that yellowed leaf that once was green;
From what it owned to others given
Then each day he lived is not in vain.

No need for sermons or parables
It is man’s conscience after all;
The act of kindness is not of chance
Each one is born with a helping hand

One can complain or choose to follow
What life can offer is neither joy nor sorrow
It’s not rejoicing and not regretting
Life’s final fall is not of dying.

It’s how one lived that counts so much
And the legacy when he departs
If like a leaf he can do as such
The joy would stay in one’s grateful heart.

The winds of change may blow so swiftly
And a man’s life may cease untimely
But a gracious soul will go just gently
Like a leaf that falls on a summer's day.

Nothing Under My Bed

Daylight hours too, 
Can be insidiously cruel.
I'm sunshine on a cloudy day, 
And I'm nobody's fool.
My manners will last longer, 
Than any pain he can bestow. 
The lessons from my intimates, 
Outlive the insults he can throw.
There are still rainbows 
Where my heart beats.
Look! He is walking 
up the wrong street

For I am no longer his home
And I am numb no more.

Jada Mortensen

And so she was the girl from Bair.
With ocean eyes and golden hair.
Of heavy heart and light despise
Of cupid's dart and winter's cries.
There came a day when things did end.
Around the corner of the bend
There came a truck and in dispair
The loudest word was spoken there.
And so she left to who knows where.
Whilst many cried because they cared.
She roams around in circles too,
And whispering winds and skies of blue.
We raise our glass towards the sky
And smile a memory although she died.
No tears tonight, not ever one.
For there she rests inside the sun.
She is okay we know for sure.
In better days to now endure.
And so she was the girl from Bair
With clemency; a heart so fair.
And as we lay in bed and sigh,
I'd like to say to you Goodbye.

Rest In Peace Best Friend

The Feeling

From deep within a silence grows
Vastly spreading, yet no one knows
No one knows of what's to come
The Feeling is sudden, then it's done.
Often with pain, fits of sorrow
The Feeling leaves nothing, not even a morrow
With much haste, take one last breath
We all succumb to The Feeling of Death.

My first poem, in opposition to last poem

How can I express to you what it is that I really think
Words, vague expressions of though, only touch the brink
 
I try my very best to get the point across
Each time feeling that I am at a loss 

Difficult as the situation may have always seemed
 I always challenged that doubt and always dreamed

 Doubt has fought back, and now hope is at it's end 
Now only despair and loneliness do I have, to lend

The time has come for great sorrow
Now there is no yesterday nor tomorrow 

Only the present, which is absent of all bliss
My own thoughts telling me what I will miss

Never did I have the chance to look into your eyes
So sad that before even knowing you, I must say goobye

How Many Times

How many times does God forgive,
Again and again, please just live,
How many times, can you fall down,
Over and over, you’ll be found,
How many times will I just pray,
For all your pain to go away,

For you were once my dearest friend,
In my heart your presence ends.

How many days go quickly bye,
How many birds sing when they cry,
How many cherubs fight for you,
How many angels dance the blues,

How many demons tried to take,
How many stripes for our mistakes,
How many times could I confess,
I never loved you any less
I never loved you any less.


How many times does God forgive,
Again and again, please just live,
How many times, can you fall down
Over and over, you’ll be found’
how many times will I just pray,
for all your pain to go away,

For you were once my dearest friend,
In my heart your presence ends.

The Visitor-

The town lay dark and sleeping,
people safe ,in beds were keeping.
Only I , restless , hounded.
walked down the street,
heart pounded.
What called me from my nightly slumber?
Something lonely, a despairing hunger.
Through the gate , a soldier stumbles,
in the distance , cannon rumbles.
Suddenly , in my arms he falls,
“1863? he said,” do you see the musket balls?”
His blood soaks through a letter,
he pushes in my hands.
“Give this to my Jeanette,
make sure she understands!”
With one last cold and wintry breath,
Like fog he disappears,
I’m bewildered , frightened,
for he didn’t know the year.
It’s 2013 now, and Jeanette is now long gone,
I keep the blood stained letter ,
in my mind the cannon echoes on.

Heart Attack

I only had one heart attack
...but it felt like two.
When the second came,
it was quite true.

The wait seemed long
...but I knew it short.
'till the tests came back
and could now cohort.

The weeks went by
...but they felt like days.
I had missed the pain,
yet I feared the blaze.

The years have passed
...but only seconds remain.
Now I fear the heart.
Here comes the pain.

It's quiet and stiff
...but also dark.
Here is my death.
Goodbye; a lark.

Dickinson's dead below her bed.
Words she said below her head.

A glance

The engine roared as from it steam poured 
Rain drops hissed as the black metal they kissed

All filed out as the suited man began to shout

One man stood alone
Nervous, but never checking his phone

A glance back he took,
Just one look

A glance at another life,
 but you only get one
And here is where his begun
He repeated as he climbed aboard 
The glance back seeming more absurd
	But still was made
	And these never fade

From the windows dark of night
Soon this town will be out of sight

His mind wonders away 
Longing for the beginning of a new day

Long ago he paid his fee
But still able to see
	To see a Sunday service
	A little boys glance with a purpose

Shaking his head 
As if to forget all that was said

As the suited man ask for his pass
The glance he can’t surpass

Memories crash his face
Like the icy rain covering this place

They are so clear
Shooting to the heart of his fear
As his body begins to steer

        They are but a few
        Such a boy in a church pew
-Years later
	The apologized for kiss
	As he prayed not to miss
	The long goodbye
	Where she began to cry
	
	

His car door he shuts 
As on word he struts

	A lifetime ago
	A girl he came to know
	From across the isle
	He saw her smile
	Stealing the first glance
	But never taking a chance
Tonight it happened once again

He saw his dreams
But it wasn’t as it seems

It wasn’t a ticket to a new place
But sunlight gleaming off her face

It wasn’t a new town
But something he long ago found
So as the rain fell all around,
Her door he started to pound

Salutations and Satin Sheets

Pulling up his pants I think he's already forgotten me
Smeared lipstick and a handful of twenty's

Dirty condoms laying on couch, the bed, and the floor 
He gives me a mischievous wink and out the door

Now i'm angry at what I've done 
A filthy whore with cheap discreet fun

Laying on my bed it smells like sex
My life has always been cursed like a hex

No worries i've got a way to take away the pain
Pulled the trigger on my twenty two and blew out my brain

Elizabeth

Violet eyes you gone away, what
thunder, the night, in your shadow stays.
Your beauty, a steaming summer's day, 
wrapped within the public soul. Though 
marriage wasn't a stable bet, you loved 
many as if a queen, your talents never 
missing, even rare failures always seen.
You lived well known with glamour and
jewels to honor high hopes. Two Oscars
for your vanity fair, yet your health couldn't 
contain all the passion you wrote. That 
lovely heart weakened and bid us farewell.
To your work so proudly done, we shall 
remember you forever.

Opposite Ends-

I don't understand why.

Why you hurt me all the time,

and try to make me cry?

I know that I'm not perfect,

but I never claimed to be.

I only know one way to live,

and that's just to be me.

I get that we're polar opposites,

you're the sun and sandy beach.

I'm winter , cold and drifting,

the moon you cannot reach.

I'm sorry I can't be the person,

you need me to be.

I don't know how to change it,

so I'm setting myself free.

I'm one thing and you're another

and I'm tired of playing games,

I'll always be just who I am ,

I'll always be the same.

It hurts that you don't want me,

but I have to let it go,

I can't take these lies anymore,

they're bruising up my soul.

So now you're free to be the person

you want so much to be.

I'm just here in the shadows, now

so don't worry about me.

I'm going on with what I have,

and leaving you behind.

I hope you have much happiness,

and peace to soothe your mind.

I'll always hold a prayer for you,

and hope you'll say the same.

I'll save the good times in my heart,

and never forget your name.

Goodbye to an Austin Angel

She was headed off to college at 18 years old,
News of the crash leaked out, and the mood turned cold.
She was the best person you could ever know,
When she danced with her team she put on a show.
Recently in Ohio, I found this rock,
With its angelic shape I found this cross-walk.
In the crosswalk I found my old best friend,
If only my heart could find a way to mend.
As a young country singer once sang, 
“18 years have come and gone,”
It’s hard at this point, it’s hard to move on,
I guess it’s time to move down the line,
I need a reassuring sign to ease my mind. 
Goodbye my friend, may heaven treat you well,
In the past, I will no longer dwell.
Hello my guardian angel, you are my eyes,
For you are with God, and He is wise.
Goodbye Tracie Lynn, you made people smile,
I’ll be there for you after a while.

The Rising

These damned temptations; they haunt me day and nigh.
Rooted from the deepest depths of hell, where even angels cry.

The unending taunt of which I cannot refuse;
The promising of joy, and yet I continue to lose.

I pray emphatically, for an extraction from these mares;
Just a brief escape from the infinite snares.

I cannot ask for help, for if they know I am shunned,
And yet they look down at me, as if their conscience were stunned.

I have recently found a plan of action however,
And pain it will bring as joy will be severed.

For this joy is false as a loosened saddle;
And the only way out is to head into battle.

Half-forgotten Song


Before I go, my love, before I go,
     could we together watch the afterglow?

It won't be long, it wouldn't take too long
     to you I'll be a half-forgotten song.

Now let us watch the slowly setting sun,
     so soothing sweet, though end has just begun,

so brightly beaming, yet, so sadly sighing,
      the day's farewell and now the light is dying.

Behold, my love, the sweetly seething sky,
     the blazing burst of colors draws a sigh.

The flaming purple clouds float by on high,
     the sun's farewell and now, my love, goodbye!
