AWAKE  ~ IN and OUT ~

Spring arising, before morning light,
I walk under the new epic sun
The aroma of yesterday, gone
Today's the day that will follow tomorrow
I quickly walk a certain walk
Unique is all I can display
Watery eyes staying in the past
While vehicles pass and pass
Crosses lacking faith
I stay awake and mend with my fate
Foggy toys, I want to play
I can't keep up with all your kicks
I look, I stare, at the walls
Bright and early, I step on old dolls
I stay and feel, the way you want
Lifeless, and still so full of energy
Mad words, unconscious forces
My sweet needs, now reside inside of you
Mad, sad, and outside the box
You close every door and keep me away from dark

You only allow me to feel your morning light
Why can't you let me see what's behind the shadows?
Why do you turn on all the lights? 

I'm here the way you want me to be
Happy, and merry, for the world to see
This blindness will continue to spot
Unless you wake up first and remove the dot
You gave me the thirst, you once knew
So filthy, so full of  -spew
Under this closed freaking door
I'm exposed like the midday sun
You bang my head on the wall,
You killed me in a way that made me feel!
I only answer to your call
In and out a hoop~ like a ball
In me, you can not find any real dreams!
Inside you filled me with a raging scream

I'm in wonder around your air castle
Strange and hung on your mantle
Stepping on a one footed slave

Alert, alert Am I!!!
I shake, we kiss, I wake,
You sleep...........................
I zip all things into one zipper.
Pounding my hands against my ears
Crazy, taking a jab upon all jabs
Crazy, you say~ that's me everyday
I'm up and I caress the photo we once had
I lay only staring at you once more
I awake before I sleep
Your promises I keep
In me~ you are also in deep
My stars change everyday
Waiting for you, to pull the trigger
Still wishing to be a sun digger

You can't touch or loosen the knots
Together we will daydream our way to the top
I make your nerve system come alive, 
We run into the wind and listen
Quietly in our chamber of thoughts
Near and far, we both nod off
In this daily race, with no face
No space, 
I caught myself awake, 
The day I fell asleep for you.

I think we all mend and play with our fate. Such fine metaphorical jewels in every verse. Sometimes being in the light exposes us to the darkest things. I really like how this poem ended and began. Well, I loved it all really. Onto the next awesome piece! Always, Laura

Well that's quiet a poem there. I see it was for a contest, but it sure has a lot of emotion in it. It reminds me of another poem of yours. Great job on this poem. I'm hoping someday I will awake from this slumber, or is it a stupor lol? Again, nice poem, well nice job that is.

I like this one! Thank you for your encouragement on my poem "Night of Wolves!" I've been in this circle many times before, but never won-----I think you have to be a PREMIUM MEMBER to get top billing! Tamara

These are wonderful lines blending the beauty with the beast, which always exists in one way or the other in all our aspects. Life is a sweet dream and a nightmare too. Like every day ultimately slips into the darkness of night. The Poem shows a fine struggle between the dreams and realities. You have sketched very beautifully & in a mind blowing way both these aspects in this unique write from your creative pen. Thank you for your precious words. Love & best wishes always...Ravindra...Poet D

p.d. this is epic, up and down, in and out, you lull and then you shake and shock, zipping all things into one zipper..WOW, then the last two lines are just the cement in the whole wall, fantastic...David
