Defeat

It was raining quite heavily And I was lying on the dark street ‘Was crying uncontrollably At my unwanted defeat. Just when you came at the window And in me raised a little hope But instantly faded my hopeful rainbow When you drew back the rope Of the curtains that now parted us And hence go different ways; as we No one would ever make a fuss Of why I loved you but you didn’t love me.

Faces And Places

I look for faces I once knew I look at places both old and new The faces have change The places not the same But in my mind’s eye It’s all the same I close myself in And  the doubt out Then I go and drift about Remembering old flames Loves lost and won Friends of youth Faces still young So full of youth With lives to be lived And summers to be filled I go to this place Inside my mind Sometime even When there is no time But as the years have left me here With not much more than fear I go...

Another Soldier Gone Too Soon

The reason that The word unbearable Exists ~ is Because some things Truly are ~ Hearts do break ~ And minds ~ And wills ~ And the courage To go on ~ May have an Expiration date ~ Written in Invisible ink ~ But no less real For all that ~ Each death is One too many ~ Each one a cry For help that Went unheard ~ They were called To the fight And they answered ~ Now we must Answer them ~ Before another Soldier dies ~ Who Fights for Them (image credit abcnews.go.com)

A Man’s World

What would this life if woman free, be for someone such as me? Bereft of love, warmth and joy, that have all stood close, since I was a boy Soft to touch, soft to hear, soft upon a listening ear Words to calm, words so sweet that quell the anger hid so deep Not always did I heed their words Choosing my own instead of those, who knew more of this cruel life, than men; who only know of painful strife Men are cruel War they bring, on the heads of everything Whilst women soothe away the pain, that’s been caused for such little gain...

Paradise

Miles and miles I walked In search of the holy one Who made you and me But could be seen by none With a disappointed heart and fragile attempts I lost my hope, I gave up my hunts Consoling my disturbed soul, I looked up at the sky Watching the snow balls roam and cry The serenity of the night from the grace of Adam Comes across Eve and the garden of Eden I was gawking down at the flowers smiling The moon’s bright white light shining On the most beautiful, eternal place I stared at the lady bugs on the green grass blades It...

Beneath the sea

I wrote this poem for a school contest. Hope you like it! I sat on the beach and a beautiful wave Came splashing right up at me It threw some pink shells on the sand And hurried back into the arms of the sea I stalked it for a mile, and it led me to a clam Purple zigzag hiding delicately As if shouting at me that it all is a flam And go back where you happen belonging to be There was a sudden pull from beneath the ocean And I ducked down to find my own surprise At a blue tail beautiful jellyfish...

A song To Sing

I watched it flying through the air, its grace and beauty beyond compare Its freedom would be something I would embrace, if I was not part of this stupid human race If we could choose what we wanted to be I would not choose you and you would not choose me I would be a bird with an outstretched wing, flying high with a song to sing I would sing all day and all night if I could, if you would let me, if you only would But like other things of beauty that we never really see, you would grow tired of me and...

Love And Candy Corn

Your scent surprised me in aisle ten  At the market today Catching me unaware and ill prepared I was transported Into another time  When brown eyes held my gaze And be-stilled my heart I wish you had been there They still have candy-corn

Bliss

The porch was wet from the dropping water, And the sun was setting scarlet The sky was cloudy, as I gazed lovingly, And tall trees were all black and red. When the smell of rain came to me, The breeze ran shivers through my skin. With it I felt so liberated, Like everything of mine flew with the wind. I tried to reminisce, but I couldn’t I had not lived a moment so perfect like this. I prayed it never to go away, For I was rarely in a more peaceful bliss This night so graceful and beautiful, Made me believe only God is responsible...

Christmas Snow

Christmas morning Snow soft and light Just enough to say  It’s white The boxer next door is howling Chloe cat is prowling As the snow Coats the ground We can’t see their faces  Warmed by their fires Inside their places They sometimes write To let us know As the grass is coated by the snow I’ll visit friends Who knew you well With sadness and loss  On these not to dwell But remember your smile  And how it did brighten  While In your heart You were frighten Chloe Cat and I miss you today We know that somehow  You’re still here to stay And the...
