Pocket watches and clocks
Heavy metal and pop
Whispering sweet nothings
Down by the bus stop

A smile like the sun
Eyes of graphite grey
Writing little notes
Of things she wants to say

He was bluebird shy
With little half grins
She was an outcast
Hair leaking bobby pins

He liked cold winters
And reading in the snow
She preferred summer
Reading by the window

Two streets over
Three houses down
Brisk, late night walks
All through the town

they sit together for the very
last time
she no longer has to be
belittled in his prescence

they sign over what is left
behind, to someone else...
she says her fair wells,
uncomfortable goodbyes
because he left by playing
her as the bad guy
she didn't expect anything less

off he goes to stay with his
new girlfriend...?
which he made sure
to rub in her face
with his self righteous smirk

good riddance & god help her

the end

Forbidden...

She knew it was
but... thoughts were forming
emotions... and the damage
All ready done

Just thinking about it...
made her mouth water

Causing heat to trickle through her body
making her hotter...and the tempation harder

Oh the shame...
as she felt her face get hot

Yet she couldnt stop her self from moving
To that very spot...

Sneaking and slow

her stomache began to quake

Finally temptation had taken over
As she ate...her chocolate cake!

music is one of my loves
rifts..
snippets..
forming a vessel for the story...
jazz with it's depth and sound
visitation..
improvisation..
the voyage between the notes...
blues with it's passion and sorrow
Mississippi Delta..
Texas and Chicago scene..
the great Robert Johnson and B.B. King...
the fury and melodic nature of rock
girls and guitars..
screeching solos..
driven by a double bass drum attack...
the songwriter and his acoustic
pure poetry..
chord changes..
the marriage of two great arts......

The end of the road
Is NOT a fun place to be
Its a place we dont choose to be
But sometimes, we go on a surprise visit
Down the lonely end of the road
Where its dak and scary
And frankly it smells like death
And some of us take our very ast breath
At the miserable end of the road
Though if you get a chance
Inhale, breathe deep
And take just a few steps back
At the end of the road
Theres a path that goes
Back to where you came from
The road is long
Its hard
And you may want to give up, its true
But on the...

Somewhere darker.

Long strides.
All consuming.
The Nothing.
And everything.

Love for all and often lust.
Taste the pain and feel the rust.
Copper tinge upon my tongue.
Break the crust.

These snozzberries..
Taste like..
Snozzberries...
Aww baby.
Here we go again,
Merry-Go-Round.
On our horses,
Up and down.

Such a clown..

Through the storms my ship will sail till I hit the
coast,
war knocks out our harmony,
Insurgencies cripples our growth,
corruption the rotten egg of decadence,
unemployment a tool of criminal activities,
greed for power,
political instability and much more.
Nonetheless, how can I reject my parents
beacause they're bad?
when I change my citizenship will my blood be
changed too?
I'll hang on to the post till peace is finally
hoisted,
I'll accept the bad and bleed to make it good,
how else could I be patrotic?

I listen with you, the music you play
Each and almost everyday
We lay in your bed thinking about the future ahead
Looking at the night sky
Wishing to never say 'goodbye'

What's your connection?
With the person you see
As you walk through
The puddle of  life's storms
That some wipe away
Without remorse.
Reflecting on your input
To the situation
Find out what's your connection
Let it be a revelation
To lead you to greatness
In the struggle of imperfection.

DU Poetry : Upbeat Happy Inspirational Poems

Published on 29th October 2014 9:05pm
Written by tornado
These new experiences
we two now share
have stripped away the walls
leaving us standing bare

nothing between us hidden
shared by free will
nothing left unexplored
turned on by forbidden thrills

our imaginations peeked
beyond explanation
our cyber inhibitions
like ribbons have come undone

laying softly about our feet
we step from them free
melding into the oneness
that now exists as you and me

Nothing can be harder
Than trying to please a man,
They never think you can do it,
Until you show them you can;
So ignore their comments,
Ignore their frown,
For when you find a way to stay up;
They try to pull you down.
Life is far from complex,
But complicated by man,
Who see living as a contest,
Extend no helping hand;
But all we need is inward,
For man was born equipped;
To make the best of his own world,
It's what you make of it.
So you can choose the best
For yourself and make it count,
Or wait till you...

Life...
can become mind blowing
when you live in a constant state of "not knowing"
Yet I woke up this morning
with my third eye glowing
No longer did I feel like I left
a part of my soul behind
As I take the 2nd hand
and let my life unwind
I refuse to infuse
other folks misery & blues
I got my Psychic Sheild ready
I got my focal points steady
No more letting my spirit
sink deep into the ground...
I'm coming out...

"When you were a baby,it was much easier,i knew just what to do.I knew when to feed you,i knew when you had a stomachache and when you were up to mischief.Now you are a woman and though i know you need your old man,my little girl is all grown up,i don't know how to make you whole again.
When you couldn't stop crying,back then,i would tie you on my back,stroll you till the velvet of the night silenced your soul.
One thing i have always known,my daughter is one with the wind.A Warris;a thriving flower in the desert!She needs to lose herself to find her heart and mind again.

Ok, so I'm no saint
I've given up most of my vices
Including alcohol and processed sugar
Even porn is on the outs
 
Eating more fruit
Drinking water
Still no religion
Exercising daily
 
I feel and look a lot better
Except for a nasty heel spur
A total work in progress
And for once, I'm doing the work

A quite spirit
A quite soul
In the mist of chaos and loudness
I know I am in control
Viewing life thru my eyes
Can be a bit confusing
A bit life saving.
Human nature knows no down fall
Only the one itself creates.
Don't allow self to be your enemy.
Allow self to know its place
Its value .
Its beauty
Its uniqueness
In the mist of confusion
Yes you can do this .
The time I find myself the most
Is when I'm in complete silence
In front of the Almighty's existence .
It is there were all my weaknesses are shed.

I love that we can talk about poetry
instead of you
being someone
trying to change who I am
and after seeing
what I have to offer
told me metaphors are
strong enough to shoot queers
Those blue eyes must be some neuraliser
because after looking in them
I forgot what the fuck I'd been
up to for the past two years

Oh sing to me!
Sing to me!    
Child wanderer of light,    
In swooning the knowledge
of a Cherub's delight,  
Wisdom's rewarded    
from listens unknown,
with whispers on ears  
and face graced of blush tone,    
Leave your sorrow
and troubles,
nay forget the dim night,
and sing to me wonder    
of the wandering light,
Oh sing to me!
Sing to me!    
Child wanderer of light,    
For the light is the vision
when closing your eyes

3 And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come
