The WurmThe Arena...
It was the one place where the words of a child would be respected as that of an adult: where age didn’t matter, and your decisions were your own.
Nothing more than an open space in the middle of the market square, it had always had a name too grand for its appearance. But it was where battles were fought, debts were paid. and grievances settled - with the price of blood.
Which made it the one place… the only place… where he could get his revenge.
Now as he stood amongst the crowd, watching the final match before his own, plotting and visualizing the many ways he was going to butcher the bastard… a strange calm settled over his mind.
He took a step forward, making his way through the throng of people surrounding the ring...
His eyes intently focused on the goal before him, he pushed aside those who stood in his path, and squeezed between others unaware of his wrath.
Writer's BlockI had a dream of writer's block
A dream in which my mind was stuck
On words like verbs, and terms like f*ck
And how my head deserved a knock
And in this dream I was quite vexed
I was so mad I was perplexed
I couldn't think of what came next
Nor how to finish up my text
I begged my words to understand
I begged that they come on demand
I couldn't bear a pen so still
That couldn't move by my sheer will
Yet on deaf ears befell my pleas
And this fact brought me to my knees
So I left a prayer on the breeze
I pray to write with ease."
I Met Peace OnceI met peace once on an afternoon stroll
"Walking too slowly" - my eyes said with a roll
And with peace was contentment, who said I looked old
The gray hairs on my head, were a sign he'd been told
So I paused for a bit, to give a piece of my mind
And happiness caught up - she'd been lagging behind
"I would love to chat, but I have no time"
I said in a rush, before in she could chime
And off I went, well on my way
Lest not another bugger, ruin my day
I was here to loose weight, not to chat or to play
And those three looked fit, they would lead me astray
So I picked up my pace, till my muscles did burn
But all that I got, was a cramp in return
And as I sat panting, anger asked me why
worry came to cry, and shame made me lie
While peace, contentment, and happiness...
Slowly passed on by.
Alter EgoAlter Ego
Scared but helpless
Bound and gagged
Within you divided
Bottled and stopped
Anchor to my heel
This need to conceal
The way that you feel
If you put up a fight
If your burden was light
Perhaps we would not find ourselves here...
Dear FinchI have waited quite a while
To send these words to you
Though in my mind, it always was
A thing I ought to do.
For once upon a time you filled
My every night with wonder
And even still I miss those nights
Those dazzling nights of yonder
Perhaps a cat so full of angst
Had no business with the sky
Perhaps a magic rainbow finch
Must spread its wings and fly
So fly, fly! To greater heights
I know you couldn't remain
I only ask that now and then
You fly by me, again.
The Land of Milk and HoneyIn the land of milk and honey
The natives act real funny
The leaders steal their money
To invest it in poverty
The rich keep getting richer
The poor keep getting poorer
The wise think not of better
The dumb all rise to power
In the land of milk and honey
They practice democracy
For the people, ostensibly
To decide to live in misery
The government - is in shambles
The senate - how they babble!
Education - mere preamble...
As for NEPA - just light a candle
For in the land of milk and honey
ALL ARE DRUNK!
Love AcrossIf all you've got
Is a pen and paper
An email service
Or instant messenger
And all you want
Is to love somebody
Far far away
Far far away
All you need
Is to express those feelings
Share those thoughts
Help them see
Your love across oceans
Love across nations
Love across stations
As a possibility
Beneath These Murky WatersA burnt wasteland
Glistens before me
My head above
Two feet below
I inch forward
The landscape shifts
The landscape shifts
Now every step
An obscure risk
These murky waters
While The Dust SettlesThere is always a trial
When dust takes flight
The common man's plight
For parched are the lips
And stale is the bread
And faint is the voice
With which secrets are shared
There's nothing like idleness
To make a tongue wag
Till nought is a mystery
And all is commotion
While the dust settles.
twitterlight oblivioni remember we had a picnic once,
on a melting summer day.
the roses spilled their fragrance,
the petals spiralling away.
we spent the morning in the sunlight,
and the evening under the moon.
the fireflies flew their drunken flight
while the lovebirds began to croon.
a glassful of spicy chai,
a pocketful of sky,
that day i picked a bouquet of happinesses,
just for you and I.
EightThe whistling wind blows with a sweet aroma,
Causing flower and blade of grass to bow.
The clouds hid the sun for a moment,
But the glory of the day would not allow.
As the birds rang out in harmony,
Further along, in a piney forest,
Waved prickly needles and spiny cones
Swaying with the sound of the chorus.
And there, in a meadow, on soft earth I sat
Looking across the way at his teasing eyes.
He smiled at me, then turned away
As my heart screamed out with anxious cries.
It rises from down within me-
My love for him, I can't deny;
I cannot hide what's true inside
No matter how hard I truly try.
He takes up my every thought-
I'm surely falling in love-
While being with this boy
Under deep blue skies above.
Love/hate: ZaGrYou may be from an another planet
Where you can dream about who you want to be
Trying to be with me suddenly
But that doesn't work with me
But here is dangerous and you have to chose carefully
About who you are and who you want to be
Even knowing if somebody's that one
Who is brave enough
That can handle a person like me
You may be annoying and loud
But I learned your really sweet to me
We have a lot in common in many ways
But that doesn't mean anything to me
You tried to steal my love in many ways
Thinking it work
But you should be careful
You shouldn't mess around with my demon that lurks
What you didn't know is that
I like you the same way
Taking that one day
To kiss you and love you forever
Like the king and queen overruling the world with powers of several
Cinnamon Skin The scent of cinnamon strong,
tickling my nostrils,
playful and dangerous.
and a water,
a sanctuary to a certain few.
The perfume that heats my cheeks,
and brightens my days.
Glorious in its tan,
and sweet in its flavor.
Your cinnamon skin,
With each kiss,
your flavor sticks on my tongue,
and the sun shines brighter.
What We NeedHidden in a corner
Away from the light
My words for you.
Screams my heart
Secretly your name
There is music
In my chest.
That my soul
Reads in the air.
I like to see
Your pretty face
The deep space.
I can’t wait
To recite you
Suns and moons
Chasing your dreams.
I want to hold
Your joy in my arms
To see, to feel
Our endless life.
Rhyming ConfessionI'm not really sure how to explain
These feelings I get when I hear your name.
To tell you the truth, they drive me insane
And I'm not really sure what to do.
I've known you for ages, so why is it now
When I hear your voice, my heart beats so loud?
Why do I feel like I'm walking on clouds
Simply by just being near you?
Why do I write my emotions with rhymes?
It seems like a cheesy waste of my time.
But you are so unique, and truly sublime,
I felt that a poem was fitting.
You see, I find your mind truly remarkable.
Your willingness to speak up, highly ad
Endless CyclePush back the tears.
Swallow the pain.
Hold it all in,
Until driven insane.
Stop your heart,
By letting love in.
Abayo, yamamusumeGrant me, heavenly Euterpe,
Light words as set I to verse
Days in miracle immers’d,
Bidding adieu my blue magpie:
Like Delphic daffodil just ripe,
Didst thou spring in wintry clime;
O, with coy bloom but fairness bright,
Thaw’d fruitless times thy shine.
Thus, cometh a poet’s summer:
Endow’d Pygmalion skill,
T’ward thy name’s youth I endeavour’d
With forever pregnant quill.
Yet, like th’harvest’s sickl’d lantern
Rais’d ‘bove tempting fall’s embrace:
From far shade a fickle return,
Whilst hid elsewhere thy true face.
Now, as fleeing Proserpine,
Fixt Fates dictate thee to fly;
Aye, good-bye; for free thee do I
As how cam’st thou to me, gaily.
Without YouAnother night without you and my dear, I must say
This yearning is starting to really bug me
I want you. I need you!
To these soft lyrics...
The tempo and rhythm of my young heart beats
This feeling I'm feeling is heightened each day
The thoughts that I'm thinking just won't go away
I miss you.
I miss you.
I miss you so much!
I long for your company, I long for your touch
I long to stop thinking about you this much
It's driving me crazy! I can't wait for us
To meet. To see. To talk. To be...
Together forever and eternity!
Keep in Touch!
