Summer was long and it breathed me in and out with passion and injustice, the days stretched out into nights which turned into mornings that became legendary stories I’ll someday tell my colleagues with a grin and remember the nights we danced among the filth of life, the kisses of destiny and the licks of the impossible that became possible. Our hopes and our actual path differ greatly. The wind tossed my hair, the sun beat down on my skin and the sand ate away at the scum stuck to the bottom of my feet. Were you my sun or were you the concealing clouds on a downcast day? My lips remain soft...

Skull looking upon this World...
In the clouds of twilight and secret
cosmic proclamation.  A time of un-
certainty yet to unfurl.
Though I knew something of its showing.
Though I knew something of its clue.
It wandered along our elliptical Earthy
tail.  A huge forgotten fragment left
after an amazing collision.  Long ago
in the past on a global oracular scale!
So now we know why it looks at the Earth
so viciously.  It awaits its coming due.

What do you feel when you touch a mourning wreath
woven from hair of someone who was loved?
Do you shrink at the thought of dead cells intertwined?
Or revere the sensation of soft silken curls
taken from crown of a child who once was cradled in your lap?
Discovering a lock of my father’s hair after his death
bore me no sadness, but made my heart ache with wonder.
I found the bundle tied with blue ribbon
 when I opened an old memory book titled “Baby’s First”.
It was the first time I had ever connected with my...

in the autumn park, mids of the town  
i went to watch trees..  
there was one, bent and vandalized,with the splits of beerbottles stringed on twigs, the tree lay over ground but still lived..  
so i went though alley to to revisit this tree to see wether it not cared by some gardener,  
who usually work in such landscapes as park...  
moisty air of grayish day wasnt obvisiously inviting for many visitors  
why park looked almost like abandoned district..  
or may be i felt like that after i sow them?   ...

"That Feeling"
I thought we'd last forever
But it just wasn't so
Im heart broken
No words can express my feelings
My heart feels as if a dark-hole lies there
My body is numb
The love that was once their was so quickly taken
I feel like im drifting
Drifting to a world of nothing
You were my light
That light is gone
Im hollow
My body still in shock
This feeling it hurts
Its hurts so much
Why did I let you into my heart
Just to have it crushed
The love i had for you will always linger
But I will always have This...

I'm glad of the time we've spent, through all the good times and the bad you've always been there for your friends. It's a tough time for all of us, I hope you'll understand. My decision is tough to make, as much as I wanted to stay with you for the rest of the way, I guess self-preservation is in my best interest. What happened to us, was a test of faith, our friendship is at stake. It's been a lesson for all of us, and we've learned it the hard way. We're reckless and were careless. We ignored the signs, we dismissed the warnings. We thought we're invincible. I hope this is not goodbye,...

I don't live a "dramatic" life, you know?
most people would say that makes me boring
I don't waste my time with most people.
My time's for my friends,
So I guess they're "boring" too.
Haha, Don't get me wrong,
They are unique, inspiring people
Still, predictable
Blockbusters lead to squeals.
Course there's nothing wrong with that,
Creatures of habit n all
But yeah, in the end
It's same old same old
When you think about it
We're just there, together, existing.
Yet at the core, we're all

What a beautiful surprise when Love is back by your side!
What does love "look" like?  The first person you see in the morning, is actually the only one you want to see the rest of your life and then forever beyond that.  Side by side sharing confined spaces, shifting past one another, but you don't mind the others touch.  Being tired after a long day working, but clapping when your mate walks in, you know this makes him feel good, yes he is KING!  And you are sincere, because that is really the way I see him.  I make a mistake, but you don't yell at me, if you do it's kinda funny....

Looking in the mirror I see someone who doesn’t categorise as ‘perfect’. Thoughts race constantly through my mind filling my head with hateful and conscious thoughts.
My hair is a mess, my body screams the opposite of thin, and my face? HA, don’t get me started,
My physical faults go hand in hand with the thoughts that lie hidden within my mind and the quiet scares me because it screams the truth.
But… you could call these thoughts delusional.
What would I be if I became the perception of ‘perfect’? How about if everyone let these thoughts consume them and they willingly...

The laws of Physics do allow for a fire in hell - exclusionary rules apply.  Be aware of what actually constitutes a flame; learn and be free. Pay attention to who is oppressing you in speaking out.  “Ideas of evolutionary change can be traced back to ancient Greek philosophers, and it persisted in the minds of scientist until it was documented by Darwin's passion. It still persists today, and between all these evolutionary ideas that are brought to light through known chemistry, laws of physics, and geology and so on and so forth - it can certainly be well enough explained.  People suffer...

We are a species that have lost touch to our basic roots and reverted to the ways of hate, ignorance, and intolerance against any species including our own. We rape, pillage, and destroy the planet for "resources" that cannot be made at will or even be manipulated for the betterment of not only ourselves but the planet as a whole. Instead we stick ourselves in a cage called society and allow ourselves to be dictated by others while falling into a cycle of self-pity and blame everyone else for our troubles. We imprison other species and destroy their habit in the name of progress but yet we...

I feel strange, thus i wonder, cause I'm dwelling with repetitions of answers that leave me without direction. I am told I am different and unlike any other they've met. Which amplifies what I've found, what I know, nothing of my reflection. Which I seek, one who is the same. But even those I meet haven't before found me.. I must settle about myself who is still a mystery as my potential other to be found ;).. hah - AtR

as I don't worry on specifically 'understanding' anything, if I do not respond to part of a note from you, it does not mean I 'reject' whatever it was....I cannot 'respond' to everything even when I do think I understand, as I don't 'believe' what-I-think, mostly because I don't want to 'have'(or be possessed by) My Own Opinion[s].
probably hard to understand, but I don't know how to explain any further
aside from my spontaneous, unplanned writing, I cannot involve myself in any...

He stands at the threshold.
Awaiting all to venture.
Fearlessly pointing. Into the
celestial boundaries! Limitless
Worlds awaiting unknown yet
even greater Adventures!

Del Dare Space Poet of The
Future! Words take him to
the distant realms of dimen
-sional time and space.
Secret forgotten combinations
of verbosity. Moved together
into a menage of art and to a
higher place.

Diacritical anomalies that spake
the wake of endless secrets! In the
end an amazing story would be told
with the clarity of noble genius!

Every problem i have with myself and others will be solved. The problems were already created so instead of making my supposedly self out to be a worrier, of which the opposite mindset will always be on that rhythm, i solved the problems then published them. Case closed and dismissed from my realm so now i move on to the other obstacles on my path.
Like minds eventually find each other through bridges of the same and so my shadow would agree if put up against me to testify. My shadow would tell the jury of the sabotage i endured early childhood as well as others, who was...

in a crowded ocean
your eyes call me
guidance from raging waters

fear of waves overtaking me
peace as others flail
to shore around me

eyes locked in heavenly embrace
leading me away to safety
