My Future Fate
I keep on observing couples pass me by oh so merrily,
Getting me all perked up, but at the same time, a bit of jealousy
I am deserving of no one and I know you'd disagree
Getting me slightly upset because I can't...Read More

My thread is broken and the pearls are falling
In that flood of tears I’m searching for my broken heart
Your silence is my fiery ghost
Wake up dear soul, without you, my life will stop.
Still the breathless whispers of tendering love ringing...Read More

Precious Memories
Grandma and I use to run across the shore.
Building sandcastles, 
collecting seashells wedged in the deep sand.

Many times we watch the waves hit the shore,
other times we leave our marks on the slushy sand.

Grandma usually covers me in the sand...Read More

See the World
The Beats Traveled
They didn't stay
locked up
in their
apartments or rooms.
They were 
out there
encountering the World,
living life,
going places,
experiencing things,
getting a grasp
of reality
which they 
would then transform
into poems,
works of Art
for all
to wonder at

All things can tempt me, but I’ll not stray long
from poetry. Desire to write is strong.

The lure of pie may shoo my muse away,
but soon new themes my poems will convey.
A brand-new movie’s on, a mystery. 
When it concludes,...Read More

I miss you, Landon
I miss you, won't see 
you for two years.
I miss your smile and
the sound of your voice.

You always make me 
smile and laugh when 
i'm sad, you have always 
been my favorite cousin,
nothings the same without you.

When i play basketball,...Read More

Before The Silence
Terminal poetry…
death by the word

Selling a heartbeat

Giving up life

No second to spare
As my pen begs for me to let it rise,
My mind finds itself in the cage that ties
Me down to reality, my other tasks
Are screaming for me to attend their asks,
My time is swallowed by my job, my loves,

“You might think I'm cold-hearted. I am.
I can't afford distractions. I've got work to do.”

of silk, she is both beautiful and dark.
For flies wrapped with a beating heart aren't...Read More

Premium Member Love Poetry
I rarely write love poetry,
I simply lack the aptitude,
I avoid tackling the emotional,
Writing about love seems
An invasion of privacy,
Especially that of my own.

The poetry books I own
All include some love poetry,
In which an obvious aptitude
Delicately conveys the emotional
So that the...Read More

Beautiful picturesque soft glowing light 
against the darkness, whilst burning shooting
star catapult through the sky in its flight. 
Spinning fine idyllic thread flow, moving.

Clean burn
It is my delight to wright 
In the early morning light

With coffee that can float an iron wedge

Words fall out in a steady beat

I wrote poems to your "heart"
under the long red "thread" of sunset
that laid upon the horizon's "beautiful" skyline of twilight
as the clear songs from "birds" echoed in the distance
before the coming "dark" of night

The breadth between our eyes was "fathomless"

By day the quarrymen

The music band understand
6 long month's they must wait
till their next recording session

They won't play the ashes all summer
In the winter garden 
With the shed at the bottom
Until the snow subsidies again

So pack away the grand piano

A Topic
My kingdom for a topic;
I do not need a choice,
Just one to which I can attach
My daily rhyming voice.

Most subjects seek me out
Or fall, politely, in my lap
And others show as soon as I
Put on my thinking cap.
