Between the Lines of Poetry Soup

Between the lines of Poetry Soup
Lies partly hidden the real scoop

Poets with emotion’s overflow
Spillage of which, they do not know

Leaks between lines of what they write
Discerning souls, bring them to light

Fellow poets with the same disease
Wanting to love, wanting to please

Can read between the lines so fair
And see love affairs recorded there

And secrets longings all scream out
Though unstated, there is no doubt

Which poet is in love with whom
Which affair is destined to bloom

Clear to read Love’s Richter scale
The in between codes, never fail 

Poems present and poems past
Love or friendship, which will last?

Terms of endearment, every one
Is a love song that can not be sung

Between the lines, you can’t deny
Is where love affairs are flying high

For we are poets one and all
Programmed, it seems, in love to fall…

With people whose words do ignite
Who caress the soul with sheer delight


Between the lines
Between the lines
The love is there
Between the lines

The long standing and hidden pain
The hints of a love gone insane

Between the lines
Between the lines
YOUR love is there
Between the lines.

A Different Verse

A different time, a different place
A different life and different face

Different wants and different needs
Different values and different creeds

Different Pomp and Circumstance
Different songs and different dance

Different likes and different hate
Different foods on different plate

A different boat on a different sea
A different you and a different me

Spritual Gangster

You don’t want to miss this
But don’t be confused this aint Christmas
You’ve gotta get real my brotha and kiss this
I’m a spiritual criminal with lipstick

If you’re lucky you just might make my hit list
Coz I’m a murderer killing *****es ego’s with fake riffs
If you’re a moral criminal and do the minimal you can’t hit this
We must stand together my brother to beat this

Pleasure - pain, generosity - blame, loss - gain infamy and greed
It’s not hard don’t get angry and there’s no need to bleed
It’s just like John Lennon said when he said love is all you need
Stand with me my friend and let go of fear if you want to be freed 

I’ll mind punch you in the heart and give you a soul diss
Aint no big brotha gonna hold me and frisk this
You’re not lost or all alone coz my arrows fire straight and can’t miss
Things aint changed and love can still fix this

Pleasure pain, Generosity blame, loss gain infamy and greed
It’s not hard don’t get angry and there’s no need to bleed
It’s just like John Lennon said when he said love is all you need
Stand with me my friend and let go of fear if you want to be freed 
Love -love- love is all you need

Not Your Fight

Dragging, lagging down this road,
Many things I was never told,
Stumble, tumble to the ground,
Looked up and saw no one was around,
Scraped and bruised... on both knees,
Begging for this disease to seize,
One more breath before I break,
When suddenly I realize You died for my sake,

When I can’t seem to find the words to say,
To cancel out these feelings of dismay,
When all I’ve seen was equivalent to shame,
And tornados wipe right through the pain,
When water washes the frailty and dishonor,
And most thought I was just a goner,
Your whispers penetrate my night,
 Speaking out “this is not your fight”
“ I died to fill your life with might”

Holes in souls are hard to bare,
Especially when your scars are there,
Hearts that plead to overflow,
Sometimes bleed and cannot let go,
But through the madness and through the times,
There is only one name that comes to my mind,
Nails that sacrificed for our greater good,
Can relate to my deaths even if He was misunderstood,

When I can’t seem to find the words to say,
To cancel out these feelings of dismay,
When all I’ve seen was equivalent to shame,
And tornados wipe right through the pain,
When water washes the frailty and dishonor,
And most thought I was just a goner,
Your whispers penetrate my night,
Speaking out “this is not your fight”
This is not your fight,
This is not your fight.

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 Deadly Dart

Wherever I go through out my whole life,
I end up struggling with lots of strife.
Thinking that my life is a total waste,
Wanting it to be over in a haste.

I can feel the pain inside my own heart,
Like someone through at my a deadly dart.
The wound is easing deeper and deeper,
Will the pain ever stop getting bigger?

Feeling emo is never a good thing,
Cutting your arm makes a really bad sting.
Blood is dripping from my arms and my heart,
Failing to dodge the largest deadly dart.

Drowning in all the lies and self pity,
I live each day but always feel sh*tty.
I have lots of thoughts about suicide,
But then I think about those who have died.

Those who have died not just from suicide,
But also those who are really nice guys.
...This "poem" was actually suppose to be a couplet (on any thing you want) for my english 
class but i made this kind bcuz i was feeling emo that day...and also after i was done i read it 
over and it almost sound like a rap song which, i guess, is kinda funny and cool.........

No Superhero

I believe in love, 
Not in you

You've hurt a lot of people
That's something no superhero would do

Wimpy attempts prove one thing
You're desire for my love has no honesty

Did your time
Escaped your grind

Whatever is left behind
A toy maker can fix and polish to shine

23 TO GO

I wake up to the radio, the cops have this suspect on the run who dives out of my speaker and is brandishing a gun. He jumps off of my balcony but before he hits the ground becomes the victim of a drive by that is going down. I open up a coffee can, I'm needing some caffeine when out jumps illegal aliens who run fleeing from the scene. They dive into a mailbox where agents for the CDC are investigating some anthrax conspiracy. Welcome to America the all day non-stop culture show I've been up an hour now, only 23 to go. The suicidal mullah and the martyr fission guard are fencing with the fuel rods of the Babylon Jihad. All the foam fanged infidels and with their bottle rocket brains start launching their scenarios for a nuclear exchange. Out on the worried boulevard nervous heads explode from all the terror elevated pressure overloads. It starts a circus stampede of the psychotropic hoard who rush down to the pharmacy for the Prozac smorgasbord. Welcome to America the all day non-stop culture show I've been up an hour now, only 23 to go.

Outcry of a broken heart

Even my mind not stilled by silence
my thoughts outraged with hurt and hate
as Im dumbfounded with confusion
leaving the cause to no debate,
I cannot tell you what is wrong
to tell you means I'd have to trust,
and my heart no longer feels willing,
beating only cause it must.

I feel a dead man live my life
I see his cold abandoned heart,
I hear his agonising cries
as he is torn more apart,
knowing no peace, no rest I find
having no comfort, stuck in a bind
a vagabond, alone in his life
Ive been cut off, betrayal was the knife.

awaiting death, and still much worse
my whole life upon this earth
seems like a scheme to take my worth
and bring me to nothing,
such is my curse
and i fear the effects
may never reverse
and make believe that I am cursed.
the way I feel too great for words
too great to bear such constant hurt
my soul depressed and left prostrate
before God to help, I hope it works. . .

Lyrics contest

“Through this world I’ve stumbled
So many times betrayed
Trying to find an honest word
To find the truth enslaved
Oh you speak to me in riddles and
You speak to me in rhymes
My body aches to breathe your breath
You words keep me alive”
I know these feeling, I’ve lived them well
In a world WHERE I could never tell,
I was once captured, they held me down
For many years I thought I’d never be found
Betrayal birthed roots that PRODUCED bad fruit
Denial hid behind smiles that bread life trials
But a burning hope, and flickering light
Lived inside, I just needed it to ignite
Perfect love, the only cure
To give me new wings and make me sore
I now can be still in words that are true
Unraveled deception, a restful view
Your words are serene, killing off the machine
I am embracing a life that I’ve never seen. 

Sarah Mclachlan - Possession lyrics

Details | Couplet | |


Lovely lacy writes what she knows
Her angelic voice continually flows
Reaching from past pain, darkness and despair
Restoring others faith with lyrics that are quite rare
Forgiveness and mercy dances on the stage
As the destiny healer writes with prophetic sage
Metal of angels, psalms of the redeemed
When delicate matters are uttered they just glisten and glean
Atmosphere changers
Silences all strangers
Environment alterations
With Warmth and supplication
Radiating spiritual peace
While chaining former raging beasts
Gifts of sunrises echo through
All this  woman seems to do.

Song of love songs

“Come away, my lover, and be like a gazelle or like a young stag on the spice-laden mountains.”
Refresh your treasures, through springs that flourish and endless fountains,
My heart has searched for you for hours,
To smell your skin is as though I have fallen into a garden of everlasting flowers,
With eyes that pierce the depths of my soul,
Your love has truly fashioned me whole,
Yearning to awaken our deepest desires,
Yet, cherishing the journey, before we evoke this blazing fire,
My dearest love, spotless and pure,
It is your presence that allows my spirit to sore,
Your crimson lips rest softly, while welcoming my embrace,
Like the finest rose in springtime you rejuvenate this place,
A neck no other could ever compose,
Every part of you is perfection; my love for you simply flows,
I rejoice in knowing, that just like the promise of the evening moon,
You are my darling bride and I am your humble groom.

Take My Hand

Take my hand, darlin’ come with me
Back to the way it used to be
Before troubles of  this old world
Made me forget I was your girl
Let’s go back to a simpler time
When I was yours and you were mine
Together we can surely find
The love that we have left behind

Together forever 
Our love we must treasure
Rebuild it, don’t kill it
I know you still feel it
Take my hand	

Rebuild our love just wait and see
To the way that it used to be
Filled with happiness and trust
It is still there if we could just
Get to the way it was before
When each other we did adore
We can fall in love once again
Be so in love like we were then

Together forever 
Our love we must treasure
Rebuild it, don’t kill it
I know you still feel it
Take my hand

Oh, oh, oh
Take my hand

Party's Over

After all the fussing, fighting and talking
Up all night, with these floors I've been walking
You come in late once again last night
It looks like you had a real good time
Guess I'm 'bout to ruin a real good day
Party's over I've got somethin' to say
Yeah, I'm gone for good now get outta my way 
There ain't nothin' you can do to make me stay
Don't try to stop me now I gotta go
But just in case you didn't know
How can you expect me to love you
When, darlin', you know I can't trust you
Baby, love can't live on alibies
Didn't your mama teach you not to lie
Guess I ruined a real good day
Party's over I got somethin' to say
Yeah, I'm gone for good now get outta my way
There ain't nothin' you can do to make me stay
Don't try to stop me now I gotta go
But just in case you raelly didn'tknow
I know all about your pretty little friends
And I'm sick to death of lies that never end
I guess I ruined a real good day
Party's over now I got somethin' to say
Yeah, I'm gone for good this time get outta my way
And there ain't a thang you can do to make me stay
Baby, someday when you're sober
Maybe you'll regret it but for now the party's over

Some waves wait for a sign from our moon;
The silver line will touch the cold room
Ready to move a night of special kind, 
Trying to tame the cruel sea behind;
As they would catch in the same ring,
In which the human spirit may sing
The lyrics of the solitary golden rain,
While night is pulling the stars`train.
White waves’ struggle may retrieve
New hope for you to be ready to leave.
And so, tomorrow`s song of loud tone,
May find that man that speaks alone
And love that rows the invisible little boat,
With wretched birds of chattering note;
But on the heights,if hope`s sapphire is sad 
While walking on the mountain red,
The dreams learn fly in the pure air:
As place, this heart, this times my dear.

Did He die in vain, leaving no visible trace to remember Him by?
Did He fall into Satan's deceitful trap and let him continue to lie?

We can be victorious as Christ was and become immortal, 
let the evildoers destroy themselves with deeds so immoral!

Did His deviate from the holy path and be easily deceived by false glory,
no, He did not give into the Angel of Darkness, but resisted with hostility. 

We can be victorious as Christ was...truly divine and humble,
let others mock us with their irrationality, we will not tremble!

Did He speak against the tyrants of His day, to be praised for being bright?
No, He did not...but with His whip He cleaned a temple so impure and dark!

We can be victorious as Christ and be part of His prophesied kingdom,
and marked by true modesty and humbleness, we'll lose our humanism!

Did He want to die as an impostor to satisfy the ego of a would-be God?
No, He did not seek glorification without merit and be called the Word! 

We can be victorious as Christ was by denouncing all vanity and wickdeness,
not being crucified on Calvary as He was, but be resurrected as Lazarus was!

''Muse'' expanded

I can hear my muse breathe and sigh;
I just listen and don't ask why.

her touch feels like a magic fire
and it's forever there to inspire.

she visits me in the cool of the morn
by the brooks where I was born.

there she reveals her creative powers
where I await among the lovely flowers.

among the flowers by the brooks
beyond the hamlet and ruined rooks

I write all day for my daily muse,
for if I write she'll ne'er refuse:

she'll be my muse till I am dead,
when my poems are widely read.

Johnny 's Song

He was born to sing upon his land
Now he's resting in God's Everlasting hands

Didn't matter who you were
That voice you'll remember for sure

A voice that could shed many a tear
Or make you just want to stand up and cheer

Oh how'll I miss this one hell of a man
Made me today of who I am

Across oceans far and wide
Johnny sang his songs with passionated pride

Now he soars amidst his eagle friends
High above the rockies bends

Oh Johnny this song's for you
As I sing about your eagle friends too

In Loving Memory

 You best believe just forgive me

never again b/c its hard on me to think I just lost a friend.

Poets Verse

Music is poems with notes set to sing.
Whatever the words, emotions to bring.

Some sad songs can really bring you down.
Listen to some blues, to keep your frown.

Other times it's fun acting like a clown.
Stay low for so long, then come back around.

Now most poets tend to call their work songs.
Whether or not, I just want to belong.

Rhyming with timing and verse set to meter.
Has to make sense, or I'll call you a cheater.

I cannot write any notes, to music anyway.
I can write poems,  if you listen to what I say.

Rhyming with timing without any reason.
Is hard on my brain in any one season.

Although all the old poems are considered better.
A new one by chance may strike on this letter.

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!

Words Of Love

O gee, hate…love…hate…love…hate.
Why do other people have to debate!?

The words of love, we shall now give;
These we have once…twice, received.

It brings peace and light to their spirit;
Of those who are in hungry need, of it.

It gives strength and hope to their life;
Of those who have nothing…but strife.

The words of love, we shall now give;
These we have once…twice, received.

O gee, hate…love…hate…love…hate.
Why do other people have to debate!?

This man of mine, never one so divine, 
He has touched my heart so many times 

Just being with him makes me feel complete, 
I enjoy him very much, he is so sweet.

How could I have found him? 
Where did he come from? 

To have found this man who found me, 
Is it a part of a divine plea?

This man of mine so strong, so true
Who loves me in ways I have never knew

He is caring and giving so gentle so endearing
These words I am speaking are not even completing

I love him so, this man of mine
My heart is his, my life entwined

Together with Gods special touch
Bring us happiness hope and trust.

Do you wonder how I am, think of me?
Did you pray our love will always be?
Do you ever want to see my face?
Take my picture from its hiding place?
Remember how perfectly we fit,
When we retreated from this world?
Just the two of us;  what caused the split?
Why am I now your yesterday girl?
We chose other paths, life  was not the same;
Yesterday days  love was ours to claim.
Yet, once again, I do not hear from you.
I sigh;  I ask myself, is this "deja vu"?
Life  and love have many surprises in store.
Will this chapter end, sadly, as the one before?
Alone now, I listen to our song  the "Duke of Earl".
Am I the "Duchess",  or just yesterday's girl?

Leaves of Love

   In a locket with an old filligree
there's a photograph 
of you and me
and though time has faded
my smile
I've been loving you
all the while

  In a tintype gone dark and brown
there's a girl in a wedding gown
as she smiles at you
across the years
how that smile can wipe away
those tears

  so let's tender touch and reminesce
as we share our life we'll
share a kiss
as we turn these leaves of love tonight
won't you kiss me dear
and hold me tight.

Sometimes I wonder

Sometimes I wonder
If there will ever be

Someone to love,
Someone to comfort me

Then I sit down and hold my head,
It might be Better when i'm dead

So I Get up and go alone
To a place where I can  just forget

All the things that I find that I regret
And so I embrace the misery

I Don't Have to Get Over You

What’s that you’re saying?
You say that I should get over you?

Well, honey, I don’t have to get over you!
We’ve broken up and I am a mess
You can’t handle that I guess
You say that since we are through
I should just get over you!

I don’t have to get over you!
I’m kinda enjoying being blue
You say I should find somebody new
I don’t have to get over you!

I’m getting into crying myself to sleep
It cleanses the soul when you weep
My friends give me all this special attention
Whenever your name they happen to mention
Walking the floor is good for my heart
I have lost weight since we’ve been apart
Saving money on groceries, too
No, I don’t have to get over you!


My mama calls me nearly every night
She is worried about me alright
She can’t stand seeing her baby this blue
I am her favorite, now that we’re through
What? What did you just say?
You’ve decided to come home to stay
Well baby, I hate to do this to you
But you better get over me, too

I don’t have to get over you!
I’ve kinda enjoyed being blue
I went out and found somebody new
Now, I don’t have to get over you!

  He was snuffed out 
from the start
so I have a double heart,

 If your Memory Persists

not a fool
come and use me as
a tool,
meant to help you
look inside
come and let me be your guide
for I am ......

         the fire fell,
                out of heaven
                       straight to hell.

  Fallen angel
        burning wings
             how the touch of
                    you still stings.

   I know I'll never care again,
       for falling angels on the wind,
             who take you  with them as they go
                  through the vortex,down below.

  to spiral down,and in that spin,
       to show you things that might have been.
             caught between the earth and sky,
                 your love can't live,your love won't die.

  and when the wings have burned away,
       it's just a soul who's gone astray.
           mere mortals cannot bear such pain,
              as fallen angels in the rain.

   the fire goes out 
      and love must die,
           when angels can't
