Broken Hearted - JTAP

Our friendship here had only just started
then you left me alone, broken hearted
you're gone but not forgotten
now life it seems so rotten
ever since the sad day you departed.

We miss you, Chan :)

This was my sadder take on the "poet who broke my heart" contest theme.

Old Weather

the weather outside is cold 
and without someone to hold
the nights are long
i sing this song
i feel like i am old

Crush from a Distance

On his awareness, her flaunted features stand a peg
forcing out zeal and energy from his third leg
praying for a wishful share
of her behind like a chair
and yet unending are his hopes, prayers and beg.

Mediocre Man

There once was a man that was lackluster
Who's life was one giant cluster
Writes a suicide note
He slits his throat
Blank stares are all his family can muster

A Lonely Owl

Once long ago on a school visit to the zoo
My little one had just begun elementary school
High up on a tree branch sat a lonely owl
With his huge eyes shut, he could pass for any old fowl
Suddenly, he opened them and questioned, “Who? Who?”

Staring at the shy pale moon*  
I came to realize rather soon  
That without you on my side 
My sorrow wasn’t able to hide      
That bright night of month June!

Limerick: Once a Lonely Grand-Dad in a Log-Jam

Limerick : Once a Lonely Grand-Dad in a Log-Jam

Once a Lonely Grand-Dad in a Log-Jam
Paid an urgent visit to a Grande-Dame*
She lifted the stuck log
During Pea-Souper smog
Damn ! Got carried down Grand-Dad Rapids – Wham !

* Dame : pronounced as in French

Life on the corner

There once was this girl who was pretty
Who resided in New York City
Got mugged Friday night
Weak attempt at a fight
Life as a harlot is such a pity

Letter to Home

When I look around... I See that It's abound
 Whatever it Is... It wants Peace 
 Peace of mind... An everlastingly Bind
 No racketeering... It isn't Blind
 It Sees More than what you see.

Lonely Night

The night was lonely for a friend
But no one was up around then
That was until three
He let out a weep
And the stars came to comfort him.

Nicely Lonely

Sobriety was good only in the past
For all those who are gentle, the die is cast
You reap what you sow, no more
Learn tricks of trade, all over
All the nice guys would always finish the last!

Inspired by Mark Twain's Quote: "Be good and you will be lonely."

Why didn't they kill me

scars have the power to remind us that the past is real-"hanibal lector"

Why didn't they kill me... why am i still here...?
Being successful is my goal...being flat broke, my biggest fear 

The pain is far to great to hide, laying awake, wide eyed, contemplating suicide,
what is my purpose, and if i stay alive, would it all be worth it? 
will I make something of myself? or maybe i should just forfeit, 
my one wish is to not have to worry, and to all those I've disappointed, I gave up, and I'm sorry. 
A strong man is what people think of me, 
but deep down inside, a child is what i aim to be, 
because you see, a child, so carefree, 
doesn't worry about the downsides to the world, 
only the fun things God lets them see....
please, one day set me free, 
take me away, 
from this hurt filled life that I lead, 
I plead and plead for someone to rescue me, 
but when I look in the mirror, what is it that I see? 
a broken down child, crying on both knees. 
this life gives no mercy, and only the strong survive,
how will my family react...in the event of my demise? 
i pray no one cries for me, because i am in a better place, 
I've rid myself of the bitter pain, sadness and disgrace 
maybe if i get another chance, my demons i will face, 
but for now i walk through the valley of death, a sad, cold, and bitter place.
Hoping after this valley ill see heavens smiles and grace,
but I fear that my mistakes will lead me to the devils face 
so many mistakes I can never erase, You only get one chance,
so my advice is to seize the day.
I've tried...I've prayed and prayed, but the pain still wont go away
day after day, my life i want to take away...but even that I fail to do
so night after night I'll lay,
in bed awake but dreaming, of the day my pain goes away...

True Friend

A true pal could never see
Defects in the likes of me.
Alas my wife is that friend
A better one none could send,
Till sunrise ends the fantasy.

Only and Lonely

No more in use, cobwebs fill the old mug
laid so fine yet no leg steps on the rug
just one mind only
soon far from holy
the soul on the body becomes a thug
