I'm Sorry Part 2

I'm sorry for the ways I fight,
I'm sorry that I dim your light.

I'm sorry I'm so negative,
That I am so competative.

I'm sorry that I'm so outrageous,
I'm sorry my hurt's so contagious.

I don't want to see your heart eache,
Cuz when I do my heart it breaks.

I'm sorry that I'm not so strong,
But you inspire my hearts song.

I'm not alone cuz now I see,
Your light that's shining just for me.

I'm sorry that I'm up and down,
But, Dear, You win the patience crown.

My love for you's so strong, please see,
A fire burns for you in in me.

I know that It's hard to believe,
But God will help us, just you see.

I'm Sorry Part 1

I'm sorry that I'm always sad, 
That I do things to make you mad.

I'm sorry that I've lost my hope,
I'm sorry for the ways I cope.

I'm sorry that I bring you down,
I'm sorry that I make you frown.

I swear to God that you must believe,
I love you more than you can see.

I'm sorry that my heart is dying,
I swear to you that I've been trying.

I'm sorry that I cannot see,
much future left in front of me.

I'm sorry that I'm so depressed,
I realy know that I'm a mess.

Writing this note's made me see,
Just how much hurt I've made you grieve.

I'm so disgusted with myself,
I'm so damn bad for your good health.

I know that It's hard to admit,
I've made this such a long hard trip.

I feel like I have ruined your heart,
Like I have torn you all apart.

I have a question for you dear,
And, yes, your answere I do fear.

You said that you missed her big picture,
When you saw, you changed your fixture.

For your sake, love, please look at mine,
Before your heart's put on the line.

I'm sorry that I'm so impatient,
I'm just afraid life's not worth waiting.

I really don't want you to leave,
I want for us to both believe.

I want to once again find hope,
But it will be hard on my own.

But then again if I'm too much,
I don't want to kill all your love.

Better Man

I can't keep from calling you, when you never answer the phone
I just want us to talk it through but that can't done alone

My three minutes are almost out, so I'll just talk to your machine
I know your mad, without a doubt and your probably hating me

I was a fool to treat you that way, those things I said were cruel
Wishing I could take back that day, I am so sorry for hurting you

I wish we could talk face to face, just to give us a brand new start
Almost done now, don't push erase! I love you babe with all my heart

Why is diahrrhoea known as ‘the runs’ When it makes you sit on the loo all day Oh hang on a minute, I’ve got to go …oh heck I must rush The contents of my stomach need to pour out of my tush English spelling used* Jan Allison 13th November 2014

I'm sorry I dissappeared

Things were difficult enough, before things had changed,
My mind rushed to deal with things that just got rearranged.

It's been so long and I'm not sure what to say,
My life took a turn on me, back on that day.

My eyes were covered with pain so deep,
Nothing had prepared me for this painful trip.

Things were moving along so smooth,
then one phone call, made my earth move.

I cared about nothing, but what was in front,
expecting you to be mad, for pulling this stunt,

Ashamed of myself for not being better,
Not sure I could say how in this letter.

But I want you to know, I missed you all so much,
Hopefully, I'm back and haven't lost my touch.

I speak to you now, from deep within my heart,
I'm not the same person, simply just one part.

Part of my soul has died and will never be the same,
I must grieve and move forward now without any shame.

I am so sorry that I left you all my dear friends,
All I can say, is that I will try to make amends.

I'm not sure what to expect, from pouring my heart out like this,
You should know that you all deserve better, I give you one big kiss.

You hate your dad, I know
but I can't choose between you two...just no

I'm sorry.
You're right, I probably would never see
how bad I screwed up, but
without you, I've gone nuts.

Seriously, I will keep trying
to have you back, 'cause I'm crying.
I don't wanna lose you, o.m.g.
I'm really sorry...

I know I was a terrible girl
but I'm a clam and you're my pearl.
Without you, I have no value
without you, I'm no longer cool

I missed  everything we've been through.
Your voice when you sing, I'm glued to you.
Hey, I'm still your number one fan
and you'll always be my sweet, young man.

you're the water, and he's the sun
without you both, I'd be done

I hope you can just understand
I'll always wanna hold your hand
no matter what happened, I'll love you still.
We used to hang and used to chill.
now I'm mad we can't do that
but again, it's my fault the balloon went splat.

I'm desperate to hear you say
'I love you mom, it'll always be this way'
I want your forgiveness, seriously
I'm really sorry.

Honorable Soldier

They say my duty is to protect the lands
Defend it! Even with your bare hands
I train so hard in the sun and rain
To become stronger, something to gain
Task after task it gets tougher
My heart and skin become rougher
Learning how to become a predator
I was chosen for this, not just a visitor
Aim for your target's heart
Kill him, find another one, restart
Gradually, I lose all emotion
Combat is my only devotion
Suddenly terrors outbreak
Our country is at stake
What are we going to do?
Start a war, come soldier, you!
Surely, the fight begins
But who are the villains?
I didn't have time to think
These dots to link
I was at war
Fighting like a wild boar
Killing as many enemies as I can
This terror, I will surely ban
An enemy tries to run
I kill him just for fun
Wait! Am I enjoying this?
What is this unholy bliss?
Feeling delight by making others suffer
What is it that I offer?
Wasn't it peace and tranquility?
How come I'm committing infidelity?
I look around, the seeds of hell
Have all come out of their shell
Pointless murdering
Me and my fleet are shouldering
Countless cases of rape
Committed by the heroes wearing the cape
The land we were supposed to protect
With corruption, it, We did infect
Following orders from above
All our humanity we had to shove
Why didn't we ask first?
Why, for blood, did we thirst?
The enemy I killed was just a kid
Going back to a place where he hid
To the world, I'm a hero
Personally, I'm just a zero
My humanity is back
Taking me to the right track
But I'm chained to my regret
A shame that I can't neglect
Although, I did quit the war
It’s not enough to pay back the score
I got a soul, yet I'm just a boulder
I am the honorable soldier

No Better Place

This reminds me of my dad who died on 
board the Carrier Intrepid and Battleship 
Arizona sunk in Hawaiian  harbor.

No Better Place

Deep down in water was a ship wreck;
Silence flowed from forward to back deck;
Loneliness was over ship's entire length,
With no energy left or any strength.

God's fish swam gently here and there,
Death and suffering was found everywhere;
While all their bodies and souls would wait
For God to pick them up at a certain date.

Date came and God took each one again
Back to heaven having let them all in;
For families and relatives saved a place,
Full of God's love and His much grace.

Heaven many say has always been known,
As a perfect, pleasant place of its own,
For each soul who did die under the sea
And no better place could there ever be.

A Dark Fantasy

I’m on a planet with a golden kiss
It shimmers with glory, such bliss!

As I zoom in, it turns into a dark land
Peep in, I’m afraid, I cannot stand!

In darkness, I see a bright glowing tower
Inside, a plethora of so called ‘man’ power

Zoom in; I see ‘beast’ kind disguised as ‘man’ kind
Alas! Not a single kind beast could I find

I hear roars of uncivilized beings
And moans of so-called weaklings

I see a trail of emotional turmoil
Those 7 deadly sins wrapped in a dazzling foil

Gifted to humanity, his power, his grey matter
It separates humans from animals and allows us to shatter

The once created planet with a golden kiss
Will it ever show the signs of holy bliss?

When I lifted my cup of tea                                                                                                                                   A drop fell on you, without any idea

Your face become so angry                                                                                                                           I was tempted to tender sorry

During the journey, you broke the silence                                                                                                                                 Like signaling a symbolic acceptance

You queried about the destination                                                                                                                            I guided you to your satisfaction

Your talk was very friendly                                                                                                                                        Our conversation became fondly

Even after the journey, we spoke a lot                                                                                                                We travelled to many colorful spot

Our love begun so accidentally                                                                                                                       Impressed to ignite immortally

You became my life’s honey,                                                                                                                                       Gifted to me, during the journey!

Love began with a sorry                                                                                                                                       Now you propose to marry!

This Turtle's Lament

I am so screaming bloody MURDERrrrr!!!!!!!!
catch that Poet Destroyer!! (grr, grr, grrrrrr)

She took my turtle sweetie
then said he tasted salty

Well what did she expect?
She is now my prime suspect!

Gone now is my turtle lovey-poo...
and I'm left crying boo-hoo-hoo

I'm plotting now my sweet revenge
for my love's death I will avenge

Watch out, pd I'm watching you
oh! the pain--your turn to stew!!

Did you know sea turtles shed tears?
Were you not moved when they appeared?

What did you do to the shell?
Did you sell it, do pray tell...

my heart is really breaking, b-r-e-a-k-i-n-g
were you the one who did the chopping??

Did his bones go crunch, crunch, crunch?
who else did the munch, munch, munch?

Thanks to you I shall never see him smile,
never see him again swim in style.


Huh? Who is this crawling towards me??
none other than my turtle honey!?!

What? You mean turtle news got it wrong?
You mean, they messed up all along?

pd wasn't cooking you at all? and not Soup?
So you're telling me I've been duped??

But I know they said she was eating turtles!!
Devouring them in between chortles!!

popping them in her mouth like candy
then chasing them down with shandy! 

Oh. OH. OHhhhhhhh.

well why didn't anybody tell me earlier?
now I have to say sorry to p. destroyer??

Ok, ok, I'll be the bigger turtle and apologize.
Sorry so sorry pd, I didn't realize...

You were eating Chocolate turtles, the pecan kind
*blush* *blush* teeheehee, spare me some, if you don't mind??

August 3, 2010 written for pd's turtle soup contest
ahaha a bit long-winded sorry I didn't know 
where this would take me, had fun though,,,,
+ Linda-Marie I hope you don't mind, I just had to 
take from your honey poo & use "poo" as well
 for my own turtle-poo ;) lol too cute

Sorry for the arguments we’ve had
Especially those that were bad

Sorry for things asked of me
When you did something I couldn’t see

Sorry that I always seem mad
Losing my wife I’m angry and sad

Sorry I may hear things in the wrong way
And how something wrong I might say

Sorry to know my children are grown
Because I have to let them be on their own

It came from nowhere,  a surprise,
Suddenly stung her in the eyes,
Hurt there like an incision,
Rapidly blurred out her vision.
Welled up, swelling and filling  -
Tried to stop without spilling.
Burst  warm over lashes and lid,
Cascaded down her cheek  half-hid.
Tiny moving river salted
Ran between her lips and halted:
Outflow of her heartfelt sorrow.
Relieved her feelings about tomorrow. . . .
( She recalled a mother long unseen)
. . . . Mum’s birthday  -  or would have been.

. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .. .

Written by Sydney Peck

1.   What’s the 12-line limit? I hope you  can accept this 14-line piece. . . 

2.  Yes, it is a tear which I personally  lost,    but story is written through the voice 
     of the narrator as poet ( also   me of course).

I know, when I see you, how terrible you feel
I know you're fatigued and cannot stand still
I know you want to tell the whole world your despair
I know you've lost hope in ritual and prayer;
I know you have worked hard, I know you have tried
I know, how in utter despair, you've cried
I know, how polite and courteous you were
I know you liked to mingle, to share...
I know you looked upon all with the same eye
I've never seen you grieve, I've never seen you sigh...

Now, when you're shattered, I've nothing to say
We can do nothing, but quietly go away -
If I were Lord, I wouldn't bear this injustice
By shattering one's life, I wouldn't get peace,
But I'm a mere mortal, with a mind and a soul
I can't give you success, I can only console.

I Want My Mommy

as I lie in this womb
for it's my heart you'll hear beat soon

da beat beat beat
and da tapping of tiny feet

attached cord
was my mighty sword

words of disgrace
embedded in my taste

drug of ill fath
served on my plate

you have rather me died
than to hear my wimper and cries

I could of made you proud
instead of being wrapped in this tiny shroud

now I am someone else's angel
wearing a nice shinny golden halo

as my unspoken words goes out to you
I hope your next child won't have to go through this too

I Apologize To All In Advance

I want to apologize to all in advance - if I am more little than rude 
I have travelled along way and can appear a little bit over shrewd 

Happy in life have I been to walk along - wearing others old shoes
Though now I can say - I am picky just to whose old shoes I chose 

It is fair to say - just like others - I have been in life to hell and back
It has made me very arrogant and more times than often I lack tact   

But I am not born from bad intentions - when I put across my views
I can pick funny - sad - happy and can even get stuck into the blues 

Then just any way but loose - I can just shove it in between the lines
And not far I would say - getting it down so it all comes up in rhymes 

Reading other learned poets - I can more than see the hidden depth
There are times I end up saying have we somewhere not already met

So if in any way I end up offending you - I can assure it was not meant
Just I was born in a farm yard me - and not down at the local convent 
My motto to myself - always remains the same - is just to let it all flow
If what I write doesn’t get a rating - then just get on with it - let it go 

There is more I could write about - but couplets just doesn’t let it show
But I am just a quick and easy lass - to ever get into the corrected know 

I would just love to write a sonnet - and wow you all - between the eyes 
But it is just no my forte - if I did - it would just to me - would be all lies

Some write about the cosmos - but to me it just never seems to appeal 
Some write with such an intellect - like it is understood and a done deal

Others write of words - that seem to just liquefy and to us all they anoint 
Where as the old common me - just writes to get in straight to the point 

My mind just cannot cope with the metaphors - it takes to write the lines
Or all the rules and regulations that make poetry - I cannot see the signs

Expanding my written vocabulary - is just for me never going to be an aim
And I know what I write down - to others can seem a little more than lame 

I just write as it comes - leaving those brave enough to read and endure
The more than brazen overrated brave imagination of me - Indiana Shaw

This poem is donated to a friend who died saving my own life.

Who shot Chelsey?

It was the 10th of the 2nd, 2010,
Nobody knew who he was or who shot his men.

We were 10, we always were the same,
We always joked and laughed and said it was lame.

We were Carrananum...

When we trained we were the same,
But we had a different name.

People knew things weren't right,
We would train through the night.

We were young and you we're stolen from me,
I always cried waiting for someone to answer my plea.

They took me, they did for 3 years,
I could still feel you dying and hear the shot ringing in my ears.

I feel and see you age and I will never forget you, even till the day I met you, I will always love you, Chelsey, even till the day I die. No one will replace you, you will always be by my side. You shouldn’t have taken the bullet. It was mine, my way out. Your death will never go in vain. Sister in arms and sister in my heart.

I was dying,
I was sick of crying.

We knew it both that 1 day I would go,
When you died, that week I tried to not let it snow.

It begins here (2006)

Sorry can be like an empty trolley
Like a screaming child without a lolly
We have both hurt each other so much and we are both in pain
I don’t want to hurt anymore I don’t want to blame
Everything happens as God intends 
But we are still special companions and friends
From tray day I have looked back
I have walked your pain on every single track
It will end and I will never hurt you again
I don’t want us to ever go through pain
God sent us for each other
You are my companion, my friend my lover
You mean the world to me and I mean the world to you
We cannot leave each other we are stuck like glue
I am sorry and my hurt will stop here
I want you back I want you near

The Monster

The monster became a living, walking nightmare
my dive into insanity, no longer perfect, containing a blank stare

I should resist, the monster will find me, run away with me
Pretend to hear my meager complaints, force me to see what I'm afraid to see

Blame and guilt, volleying right and left, up and down
It's crashing me closer, with every step, I'm falling to the ground

It's all a game, just play along, play the game, play it well
Brimming confidence, dissolved in thoughts, of what? I won’t tell

Demons, devil born souls, run quick, run fast, stand my ground
No sense of fear, n sense of foreboding, not even a slight sound

High speed, pursuit of hell, bent on going, bent on crashing
Giving into the power, life's faster, lights flashing

Crash and torment me again, my eyes close after all
The beginning of the end for me, feeling numb after the fall

Is there a way out? I'm different, distant and moved on
Listen to the water, calling, coaxing into death, I'm gone

Endless, empty cloud; dreamless oblivion; oxygen, exhalation
Am I dead? Still alive? Broken into pieces, I need motivation

Reality closes in, walls me in; until there’s nothing there
Death comes behind me, containing a blank stare.

Sorry For The Dane-ettes

Sorry For The Danettes by Rick Rucker I'm so sorry, neighbor Sun, For what my little dog has done! I don't see how it could even happen, that a dog that has to jump to pee, Could impregnate a dog that, when standing, is five foot three! Analyzing the "attack," Your dog must have been on her back, Egging poor little Heinrick on, Once started, I'm sure, he was gone! Still, you must admit, That they are quite a hit, With all the local brats, Who use them to chase the cats! At two feet long, and legs real small, They can hide behind a soccer ball! Jumping out, running like the wind, Those once-fat cats, are much more thinned. Please accept my apology, For Heinrick's lesson in Impossible Biology!

One word for apology.
One word for sympathy.
One word to make peace.
One word to make ease.

Four letters that will make you better.
Four letters that will make you sweeter.
Four letters to erase pain.
Four letters to erase taint.

Two-syllable word that will make all, impossible.
Two-syllable word that will make all possible.
Two-syllable word to clear tears.
Two-syllable word to clear fears.

A word that is so hard to utter.
A word that is so hard to gather.
A word to make you happy.
A word to be is ''sorry''

Then and now {Double Posting}


I welcome you all to the dance
A place where souls are held in trance
Destiny is our truest fate
Taking your soul will feel great
I was born unto this life
To distribute pain and strife
There is nothing you can do
I shall have this dance with you
As we dance across the floor
I shall show you what destiny is for
You can try with all your might
I will have this dance tonight
As we dance you should know
I will crawl up in your soul
So take my hand and join the dance
I hold your soul in my trance
No need to try and run away
With your soul I shall play
By the time I am through
Nothing that you can do
For I shall leave you like a shell
As I take your soul with my spell
There is nothing like a dark romance
So will you please join the dance?

Beauty can be rated by so many things
Like the noise birds make as they sing
Beauty is a flower growing from a seed
It also is a baby tender with its needs
If a person takes the time to look around
There is so much beauty on this earth to be found
Beauty can be a mountain all covered up with snow
Or it can be firelight with its entrancing glow
One thing in my life I have come to know
No beauty is as beautiful as the beauty of the soul

I posted this this way to show how
much poetry has changed me. I
guess now you understand why
I wanted to bury them old poems.
Sometimes like right now I just
can't help but cry for my pain is
very deep.

Curled Up

Her skin white, drained
Her expression dark, pained
Eyes staring out, completely blank
Hair lifeless, dank
Her fingers curled, still
In her mouth, a cyanide pill

The Warning

Oh little Israel look around 
Egypt has taken over your towns
Oh little Israel don’t you see
All that is left is rubble and debris
Tornados have swept through fields of old
As your people continued to worship gods of silver and gold
Hurricanes destroyed their precious land
As their cries looked up and then shouted quick demands
Oh little Israel they have forgotten the one
Who made the stars moon and sun
Oh little Israel look who they have allowed to rule
Puppets on strings are there new favorite tool
When foundations are cracked it affects the entire city
If repentance does not come soon it will be such a pity
For a rebellious generation is already on the rise
Quick fixes and false ambitions, each ready to compromise
Oh little Israel you have a voice
Tell all of Egypt they still have a choice
When they Surrender and begin to remove 
All in which I don’t approve
Healing waters will run once again
Egypt must make God their savior not just their friend.

Thimblerig 2

Tomorrow was a day too late 
remorse spent a sleepless night of blame.

Yesterday’s gone without warning
regret's second-chance now has no aim.

Today’s lament sounds so empty
reconciliation woke to shame.

What's wrong with being truthful?
Not speaking up is a waiting game.

I'm Sorry, Lord

I’m Sorry, Lord
     By Dane Smith-Johnsen

I’m Sorry. Oh, dear Lord, my God.
While imperfect on this earth I trod.
Forgive me, sins of omission.
As I live by will in submission.

One wrong choice after another,
Soon, I turned my head from a brother.
Then, focused mostly on myself.
Love:  Thy example, put on the shelf.

I’m sorry, dearest, perfect God.
I failed to hold to Thy iron rod.
I made new friends; they seemed so dear.
Thy muddied teachings once crystal clear.

Temptation came to blinded eyes.
And I listened to the devil’s lies.
Rationalizing: next best friends.
Forgetting to know the wages: sins.

I’m sorry, Lord.  Your love ignored.
I turned away from Thy care adored.
Forgive me for my youthful ways.
I forgot to love Thee day by day.

Now kneel I humbly at Thy throne. 
Heal my heart. Understanding has grown.
Forgive me for forgetting, God.
I’m sorry for imperfections trod.

This poem was written for Christie Moses, I’m Sorry Contest.

My Public Apology

I'm saying sorry to all of you,
The sorrow is like an arrow piercing me through.
I never ment the stupid things I said,
I'll keep them in my heart 'till I'm dead.
I need to know so I can be free.
Will you forgive me?
