Growing Up Isn't Easy

When I was a child
You hurled insults at me
Reviled me
You call me weak
Do you even remember my name?

When I was older
I knew why you you insulted me
The need to possess or control
Was an all-consuming hunger
You wanted my soul.
Now you don't even care for my attention

When you were in college
I was a distraction, a means to an end
The way to get what you needed
Do you even remember I exist?

Now I'm older
My scars no longer burn
The pain is still fresh though
It forms my whole being

For though I have been
Slander and abused and
Taken advantage of

I survived

I'm stronger

I will go on

'Twas the penultimate day before Christmas

'Twas penultimate day before Christmas
I sat with no Elf on my shelf
I licked cookie batter off of my fingers And smiled in spite of myself
I had no presents to wrap
No festive lights to hang
I really cannot lie
Amazon is a wonderful thing
The rain was falling down
And splattering on the panes
The children sat school
And wished they had candy canes
The vacuum cleaner was running
Picking up the dust on the floor
If I had to clean anymore s***
I'd scream till I cried no more
Visions of Santa would not come
I was busy crying in pain
If I had to wrap another present
I'd slowly go insane
Christmas has come to mean parties
Gifts and ribbons and strings
We no longer think of the joy
Of the peace the season should bring
So as we sit there on Christmas
And gather with friends and family
Take time to sit and remember
Those struck by war, illness and poverty.

Violent Kisses

Cover me with violent kisses
Rage against my body
Make me beg for you
Open and waiting
Hold me as I fall
Reaching out for what's within grasp
Lying in the dying light
Shelter me
As our souls merge

Bu/y Owner


Whole mostly complete person--

Not too short, just high enough to reach
I will wear sandals when not at the beach Including a heart that's mostly complete
The cracks give it charm, they make it look sweet

As for the brains, I have to be thinking
Of solid more ways to ever be linking
We're all connected, we should be aligned
One day I will find it- true peace of mind

Now to the almost, Which never will be-

I'll never act or model or professionally sing
Don't expect to hear wedding bells ring
Don't wait for my children, they never will be
I don't want your pity. Children are hard you see...

One day in the future, gone we'll all be
My personal Fortune is harder to see
Add in cancer, immune problems and more I'm amazed that I've lived to see 34

This isn't a message, it isn't a plea
It is who I am, a description of me
The outer surface is all that you see
When you reach the middle, my heart will be free

Waiting Room

I sit waiting
Time can drag you
Pull you along bloody
Into infinity
The clock beats in time to my heart
Can I make it March?
Moments can be counted
They are sitting in a tidy pile
Something is missing
Days are dealt in hands
Whose hands?
Dealers come and go
Luck of the draw turns a flush, a full house
My house is empty
Can I have a page, a book?
The writing is blank
All cards are wild
As I sit waiting

So a Contemplation...

I watched August: Osage County. One thing that always bothered me. Ivy and Little Charles. Admittedly, they never had a chance and the whole incest thing. But it seemed like quiet frankly, she gets screwed. Everything drops on them, as the least messed up of the whole crew. They should have had a happy ending. So I wrote a response from Ivy to Little Charles' song, if they could have been together. Forgive the odd meter and rhymes, I was sort of trying to follow the original. It does work if you sing along. It's streching here and there but c'est la vie!

Ivy's Answer

Well I always had the words you couldn't say
Get the feelings out so they don't get in the way
I'll sing with you with all of my heart
For our feelings
We can't really  hide

I'll write a poem for you each and every day
And a special one each time you are away
I'll fill the world with all our desire
For our feelings
We can't really  hide

No our feeling we can't really hide.

Listen Here.

Intense Passion

The night is slowly growing dim
My eyes study you
I rest my head upon your shoulder
Lay still
Feel breath warm the back of your neck
We rise and fall together
In love
[         ]

Untitled # 462

Live with me and be my love
With hearts and hands entwined
As long as work is being done
I don't think friends would mind
The day is long and hard and bleak
It seems to never end
But when our eyes, loving meet
My broken heart will mend
Joined together in warm embrace
Two hearts will beat as one
Together there's nothing we cannot face
we will outlast the Sun

Chains

No memory of when this started
No thought of when it ends
I humbly beg your pardon
We were the best of friends

But now the sky's exploding
And stars, they fall to earth
I feel my world imploding
The pain of life, rebirth

When we stand together
We cannot be apart
These bonds will never sever
The chains upon our hearts

Shadows

We walk alone together
Shadows holding hands
Bands are breaking daily
No more base demands

I love you not in anger
I love you not in hate
Fate is a clever device
Making zeal abate

Tomorrow comes on sudden
The winds of time blow true
Through thick and thin together
I'm standing alone with you

Vested

Changing guard, changing times
Toys are put away
The hollow bells begin to chime
And numbly we obey

Place and time already set
Naught to do but wait
Hearts that fill with pain, regret
Fight the hand of fate

The time approaches quickly now
As turbulent feelings grow
Will this end in promised vow,
Or heartbreak pain and woe?

Supplication

If it were you...

Would you...
Still be waiting,
Still be hoping,
Still be longing?

Would...
Your brain think of me first,
Your body ache for me,
Your soul burn for me?

Could you...
Wait patiently,
Move on,
Find a new love,
Find a new life?

But what about the promise...
Not to betray or stray,
Not buy look or word,
Or thought or word,
Or by touch?

Would you...

For me?

The Dance

Eyes with penetrating gaze
Pierce the madness and confusion
Slowly meeting across the haze
In want of inevitable conclusion
Stranded there in captured fate
Lifeblood flows a new
Staying here is worth the wait
The need to see this through
Reaching through the Great Divide
The dance, a pax de deux
Coming forward side by side
My fate is tied to you

Love Formula

When time was old and we were young
The rosebuds blossomed blue
Throughout the land the Word was sung
Of Deeds both good and true

When time was Free and we were kept
The rosebuds blossomed black
The singing ceased, flowers wept
Our words for feelings, lacked

When time was young and we were old
The rosebuds blossomed grey
Time was stalled and dark and cold
The seconds passed away

When time was kept and we were free
The whole world blossomed new
We walked and laughed by sandy seas
The words we spoke were true

Pressed

I made it
I survived the day
On the morn
Who know or doth say?
The time passes by
None 'er asking why
And I've said all
I have to say

*title suggested by My father

He said/She said

Let them keep talking
The lights on when you're ready
They've done all the talking
So keep moving steady
The sweet sounds of reason
Will soon bright your way
He says/she says
Shall quick fly away
The time it will pass
As people will stay
Reason has shown
Will paves the way
And when it does come
The light will blinding
True love at its best
As hate is unwinding

Found this lying around

Mutual Destruction

The smell of you wreaths my every breath
As we lie embracing
Tomorrow is a heartbeat away
If it never came would you mind?
You hold my hand so tight
Yours engulfs mine
Your life is so grand
This is your sanctuary
Your refuge
Who would take that away?
When the sun rises you have to leave
I die a little each time
I die when you come
You die when I come
Mutual Destruction
A supernova in your eyes
Can we stay here?
I know better
But I can dream
Can’t I?

Lies

To think this on the lies we tell
To prove to the world all is well
I'm fine, It's mine,Your hair looks divine
You'd think it some bloody magical spell

One tries to be much more then cleaver
When putting words all together
We try to be good and do all we should
Sometimes there are storms we must weather

No lies, the Bible doth say
Keep the way of the Lord a'lway
Sometimes it is needed
Rules not to be heeded
The punishment later to pay

Change

I saw you today
Walking across the square
And when you looked at me
Your eyes weren't really there
I started to walk toward you
I started to go and stopped
You saw me and you turned around
My heart found fear and dropped
The weather had been bright
Sun shining, clear, serene
Out of nowhere clouds began to roll
Painting a dismal scene
Now I turn, I run from you
My panic, fear and pain
Have caught me deep with in my soul
As teardrops turn rain

Verdad

Verdad

Love means saying no
Turning away
So the tears don’t show
Walking away
With your head held high
Heart breaking
Knowing it’s for the best
Not for you
But for your beloved
For without you
They will soar to new heights
With you
All they will have
Is you
And you are not enough
For anyone

To the Father of My future Children…

To the Father of My future Children…

Since I know you don’t exist
Can I compliment your hair?
Can I say your eyes are beautiful?
Or that they sparkle in the sun?
I feel I know your laughter
The way it touches my soul
When the wind blows a certain way
It feels like your breath on my neck
And since it doesn’t matter
I’ll say I love your lips
The way they touch mine gently
Then whisper I love you
Often

Sonnet #222

Sonnet  #222

Our time is fast at hand
We must approach with care
The time we have to share
When we’ll walk hand in hand
Along the golden sand
We’ll make a lovely pair
Of only life were fair
But things don’t go as planned
Restraint must rule the day
We find our center space
To wait and rule our souls
We keep our love at bay
Till in the proper place
Till then pain takes its toll

New Endings

New Endings

The lover’s quarrel is amended
Think not that this tale is ended
For unless a parting follows
Love in heartache and bitterness wallows
If only goodness lit the day
We know not night to keep it at bay
And without the loss and touch of pain
We wouldn’t know what we have gained

Vows

Vows

We all need love
We live by Honor
We strive to obey

But we struggle to obey
We fail because we love
It stains our honor

How can we understand honor?
When we only try to obey?
The struggle comes from trying to love

Because with Love, we choose to honor and obey

Entrapped

A wild wind whispers through the trees
It murmurs your name silently
Time is waiting on a half thought prayer
All of creation is full of anticipation
Your name is spoken
Time stops
The world starts spinning again
Only to come crashing
When your lips meet mine
Pleading, pulling my breath from my body
Slowly I surrender
Yours
Completely

C=T+t(The Allen Equation)

C=T+t(The Allen Equation)

Lay your burdens down beside me
They’re too much for one to bear
We could sustain the weight of the world
If only you would share
The rain keeps falling sideways
Music all sounds flat
You’ve kept patient under pressure
No one finds fault with that
But the time has come for reckoning
To wash the sin away
One day you’ll look back fondly
Laughing the tears away

No Fault

No Fault

Pardon me I did not see
The light that left your eye
Deliver me and set me free
I believed your tender lie
The world is made of grey and pale
Not just black and white
I saw your love exchange for sale
In fell and blackest night
Now you are just like the rest
Trying to make life seem stable
But that is not what you do best
You can only do what you’re able
Time to rest for the second act
Time to get yourself on track

Meaning

Meaning

A certain amount of matter
And a little bit of mass
Have found themselves together
Just to process carbon gas
A transformation ever changing
But to the world, a different view
It passes in an instant
Unfettered and unskewed
The scars will heal so quickly
As is they had never been
The struggle to be heard
Above the maddening din

My muse has left me…

My muse has left me…

My muse has left me
It thought itself free
It wonders the world
Having forsaken me

Carried away
On a wish and a prayer
Looking for answers
Found god know where

Bound but still separate
In heart and in mind
My muse will return
With love in good time

Hourglass

Tired of playing ifs or ands
Watching the glass run out of sand
Time is foremost on my mind
Pages turn and years unwind
Tomorrow is gone, no more is the light
Anguish unbarring, the struggle, the fight
Decisions will come, time will seem brief
Taken away by the words of a thief

Decisions

Decisions

A fleeting ball of gossamer
Floats precariously on the wind
My soul’s sanity is dependant
On sticking a needle in
I’m no tower of strength
Built so tall and compelling
I’m not a font of love
There is no joy over welling
The line will end with me
Not drift infinite into space
It will never be the right time
The right person or the right place
Hopes are dashed here daily
Don’t come here to have your tears quenched
Truth cleans brighter then cleanser
Lesser emotions must be benched
So gird your loins and enter
Don’t be surprised when I say
I will not lose my center
There, at least, you have no say.

Within

Within

Passion ignited by lust
Burns quickly and brightly
But never lasts for long
To sustain love, you need more
You need intimacy
More than carnal knowledge
To know each other
Inside and out
Without a touch
Without a word
Within

Questions

Questions

If I forgot your name…
       Would  the wind whisper it back to me?
       Would the stars light it in the skies?
       Would the seas spill your secrets?
If my heart forgot to beat…
       Would you breathe my breath for me?
       Would you cradle me in your arms?
       Would you share your life in my veins?
If the world were to end tomorrow…
       Would air still move through the land?
       Would fire still burn?
       Would our tears quench the parched earth?

Chronology

Chronology

This temple…
Will never be rebuilt
Its passages are permanently obstructed
There is no treasure to plunder
No wonders to explore
Leave it to crumble
To fall to ruin
One day…
It will be a wonder
The unpassaged temple
The unplundered treasure
But until that day
It is simply a building
A blight on the landscape
Perhaps we should
Demolish this temple
Give history…
A place to start

Idiom

Idiom

When making folly in the name of art
Do you reveal your hidden heart?
Like every child has a toy
That brings to them a world of joy
There is one place where troubles start

Jealousy plays a major part
Without which wisdom we can impart
It all seems like a hidden ploy
When making folly in the name of art

The story needs a brand new start
Take heed and remember, play your part
It’s a life that most enjoy
No one wants to maim, destroy
But when making folly in the name of art
Repetition reveals the darker heart

Don't Forget

There is no pleasure for the penitent
No savior for the just
A battered bag of bones
Lies beaten, bleeding and bruised
In shouting at the wicked
We oftimes forget the compassionate
Cooler heads cannot prevail
When ardent passion rules

Façade

Façade

We choose the face we show the world
And lose our grace as truth is hurled
Flung far and wide as others take
All our lives we live as fake

The price of love is what you pay
As all your friends you will betray
So we give up goodness sake
As our lives we live as fake

In the end the lie is real
As we forget how others feel
Then another heart will break
As all our lives we live as fake

I was going to write a poem today
But my brain did not want work that way
So I wrote these lines instead
To see where inspiration lead
And this is all I had to say

Cynical

Cynical

I think you think me a cynic
That I haven’t found the right man
But I’m not that much of a finick
He’s tall and handsome and tan
He’ll jolly but acquainted with fate
He’s eyes are grey, brown and blue
His hair is curly and straight
He’s skinny and fat and short too!
You can say I’m quite insane
It doesn’t matter to me
For when I met my twinflame
He looked anywhere but at me
So if, to you, I seem selfish
When you talk of fish in the sea
Remember that I HATE shellfish
And the mercury is poisoning me

Deadly

Deadly

Tell me of the howling of winds
That blow the bleakest black
Whisper of your darkest sins
God and I will hear of your slack
Whisper to me of cleverness
Of great deeds, of battles foretold
Don’t try to make it seem less
Clever or brave or bold
Remind me of your virility
Of women, of wine, of song
Don’t bother with humility
Tragic tales are often too long
Shout of your numerous possessions
Of which you only want more
These are private confessions
Not added to legend of lore
Adding substance to the world though
Would require much effort, a coup
Forgive the truly low blow
But that seems too much effort for you
The world must seem like an oyster
One that you wish to eat
You feel as though you’ve been cloistered
And lacking of anything sweet
Forgive my troubled verses
I see the ire in your eyes
Little effect have your curses
The truth will outweigh the lies.

The Revolution Will Be Live-Tweeted

The Revolution Will Be Live-Tweeted

While wiling away the lonesome hours
The fire dies away
The subtle form and plays for power
It makes you hang your head
And wonder at this hate filled world
A golden prince in a handsome tower
Keeping girls at bay
What’s the difference between defend and cower?
When words can wound like weapons
Children learn to wield them well
It’s amazing that women haven’t soured
Of lives lived certain ways
There must be a collective willpower
The revolution comes ahead of schedule
It has waited long enough
The time has come to overpower
The world as now it lays
We must o’erturn the bower
Precious things can be destroyed
Only time should be that precious
Once the world has been scoured
We will have our say
No longer will hate devour
And all the world will be empowered

#untitled poem

Closing in, almost a win
Tomorrow seems so far away
A long night, a bitter fight
Keeping creeping nightmares at bay

The sun appears and as the end nears
The fear is gone and dying
Time is telling, Joy is welling
There can be no denying

42

42

Season and reason pass away
Like feathers dancing in the wind
All time should hold a steady pace
Not join a race into the sun
The breakneck speed, intense, bucolic
As hearts and minds collide undone
The passing tide is rising fast
And waves approach full with intent
Then with a blow havoc rent
No life has truly ended
Time will soon make three from two
Creating love from hearts unbent

Burn ' s Night

The snow lay crisp as angel's hair.
As dawn awoke the world lay cold and bare
Was ever there a sight so rare?
What light! The sun! The glow!
Take flight and watch the path with care,
Or sit and watch the show!
Robert Burn is a celebrated Scottish poet. His poem are generally written in 6 line stanzas in an aaabab rhyme scheme, with the a lines written in tetrameter and the b lines in diameter. This was my little contribution today. I picked snow since the East Coast of the United States in currently Under Snowpoxalyse 2015.

Thaw

Thaw

A noise that starts off slowly
Imperceptible in the background
Slowly
Building
A bit of a crack in the distance
Then suddenly a thunderous roar
The sounds of the thaw
Permeate
Invade
Time has come to move forward
Spread out from winter’s grip
Its hold gradually lessens
Then
With a snap
It is over
The silence is deafening

Nightmare

Nightmare

The light is gone and hid from view
It disappeared one day
And took with it the sun and moon
‘Caused joy to pass away
A glimmer is all ‘twould take
To make the world okay
But now our life blood spills away
And we wait in nightless day
We’ll feast on the returning
Step once more, into the fray
Until that day, we shall march forth
Keeping the nightmares at bay

Hidden Key

Hidden Key

While we see The floating gossamer dreams elude and move away
They keep at bay From fairy dreams and flying free they change the mood
I must conclude That night will stop the endless day and sand will stop the sea
I now can see By waking dreams we all are wooed then time will pass away
If we stay Our passion’s freedom is the key to life pursued
And being shrewd It lights the path to show the way and shows to us the key

Power

Power

Keep calm and steady heads
Lest madness grow in our veins
For the world is free of reason
It infects the very soul
A swelling resonance erupts
It pounds and drums in time
Encroaching on everything
Our reason will set all free
They come now to topple us
With raised and steady arms
As we fall, together
Reason has swept the land

Generations

Generations

They go where time does not expire
And wait for no new moon
Winter falls in summer’s swoon
The creeping vine begins to seed
A world explodes in endless fire
Mouths fill with the taste of mead
And liquor turns the stoutest liar
Some obstacles become a boon
If, of our lives, we do take head
We walk all day on tight rope wires
And end up with the greatest wound
So shall we soon change our tune?
We make ourselves fulfill our need
Our grandest wish becomes desire
More will come like endless weeds
Of everything you will tire
It will come full circle soon
And the look will be parent to the deed

Defiance

Defiance

A brief blast of breeze
Crushes clay to dust
Daring Death to
Extend ennui
Forever

Complacency

Complacency

The visual evidence does not lie
There is no weeping and wailing
Perhaps there may be heaving of sighs

Don’t come to me later with hands wringing
Bemoaning what would or could have been
Most trouble is tricky and cloyingly clinging

Solutions come quickly when you open your eyes
Time is rapidly passing
Maintaining illusions might win the prize

But lies come home a-winging
The row is hard to hoe
It often sets heads to ringing

Life

Life
Pretentious words with portentous meanings
Hurled through space
Repudiating what you hold dear
Stagnant vision clouds laggard minds
Invoking base responses that emolliate and percolate
Superior intellect forces quiet and calm
Emotional involvement would only concede the point
Conclusion comes with introspection over time
Modulation might be imperative
Necessity knows no measure

Struggle

Struggle
She walks on haughty airs that give us pause
Flesh and bone run though us all
And base desire is a worthy cause
For pride goeth before the fall
The time has come to gather up flowers
And watch for stars are falling
Comets have come to grander towers
The results can be appalling
The ocean cannot meet the sky
Though forever they are striving
For one must surely fall and die
While the other is uprising
