    Water born under fire.
    A misled existance.
    A misguided life.

    A ritual of mourning.
    Noon.
    Night.

    A knife as sharp as a chop stick.
    A life on the middle prong of a fork.
    A wrong made right by excuses.

    Bottle fed lies.
    Breast fed nourishment.
    Dead brain cells, A star grades.

    Walking on a shattered pavement.
    Minding the cracks.
    Missing every one.

    Companions forgotten.
    As fast as can be.
    Can it be madness?

    I like the contradictions and contrasts. They made me think; they were evocative because they were "awkward" or contrary. I like this poem a lot.

    Cheers, it means a lot when people comment. :)

    Here are a couple of my favourite ones:


    'I live'

    I live in a world where words shout,
    Back at you with force
    I live in a world where Image screams,
    "I need help!"
    I live in a world where voices differ,
    and a single one is irrelevant

    No one cares if you scream,
    in the middle of a packed room.
    And everyones eyes are on you,
    when you fit into the crowd.

    I live in a world where air strangles,
    and the water is beautiful
    I live in a world where wrong is right,
    and opposites attract.

    I live in a world where answers rule,
    but there are no answers.
    Why do things go wrong?
    But the end is always right?

    What happens to the words I write,
    And freedom of speech?
    Why do I have so many questions
    and not enough answers?

    Why does the world undermine people?
    undermine me?



    -----------------------

    'Venom'

    I see pretty faces
    speaking
    no words
    worthless words
    meaningless
    NO SOUND
    pathetic inferior child
    sticks her big nose in where the sun don't shine
    only to reap the rewards of success and honour
    in times of hatred and deadliness
    where weasels live
    and survive
    in their own
    squalor
    MY HATE
    SPANS THE
    UNIVERSE
    I CAN'T LOVE
    YOU
    pathetic weasel child go home to mummy
    a mothers love kills those who need it
    take it AWAY
    take from the rich
    and donate
    to ME
    YOU ARE
    STUPID
    this truth drives me into madness
    i know i can stop the pain if i will it all
    AWAY
    but i have no will
    stolen by love
    taken by the sun
    put out of reach
    where time stands still
    where you have
    the chance to
    DIE
    go
    and leave my world
    crawl in the ashes of success
    blinded by the smoke
    for you will never feel
    hatred set you free
    FOR YOU
    ARE ALIVE
    AND THAT
    MY DEAR
    IS SO
    LAST SEASON
    don't cry to me
    for your eyes
    fill mine with fear
    and your tears feed me
    giving me silent messages to turn down my
    life, only to be disappointed
    because you underestimate my strength
    I HAVE ONE THING
    ONE THING
    you will never
    have
    I have me
    I have made up
    your mind

    I liked reading those, summed up just about everything i hate about where i'm at in life

    Yeah, they summed up pretty much everything I hate about where I was in life.

    Although, I wrote these a couple years ago, I'm a different person now. You should take comfort from that because any one and everyone can change for the better. I wouldn't have believed it at the time, but hindsight is a beautiful thing.

    I'm sorry if my name offends you.

    In my own way, I try to help people. If you don't like it, you don't have to be rude about it.

    Here are two that are going along a similar line:

    Sonnet.

    These lives, they lay within my palm
    Their hearts beating, delicately, in synch
    Taking care, protecting them from harm
    Coursing through time without a second to think
    In squalor he survives, not a penny to his name
    For what he owns, he has worked hard
    With nothing but love and faith to gain
    He toils on and on, she is his reward
    In the heights of society, she was born
    A life of glitz, glam, money and fame
    From her family, to love him would attract scorn
    Neither he nor she wants to play this game
    And though, in this life, they’ll never meet
    In the next they’ll share a love impossible to beat


    ---

    'The Beast and the Belle'

    Your heart stopped beating.
    Mine followed suit,
    Your eyes glazed over,
    Mine closed tight.

    Our fingers entwined,
    our souls soaring,
    Together forever,
    loving and adoring.

    My hair is brushed,
    nails are painted,
    Your suit is dapper,
    My dress is dainty.

    For heaven, too bad,
    Too good for Hell,
    Together we wed as,
    The Beast and the Belle.

    'Time'

    Time to say goodbye to the clocks that are ticking and the birds that are chirping.
    Time to say goodbye to the hearts that are beating and the lives that are living.
    Time to say goodbye to the eyes that are blinking and the stars that are shining.
    Time to say goodbye to you.

    Time to wave goodbye to the Earth that is spinning and the fish that are swimming.
    Time to wave goodbye to the elephants that are eating and the cheetah who is running.
    Time to wave goodbye to the sister that adores you and the brother that evokes you.
    Time to wave goodbye to you.

    Time to hug goodbye and to kiss goodbye and to wave goodbye to the world.

    Here is a poem my Fiance wrote for me. I wanted to share it with you all.

    Untitled

    I touch the inanimate
    You, beyond my embrace
    Wishing I could traverse these boundaries
    To physically touch your face.

    Those locks and smiles they burn
    Epitome of fire
    Instills longing I could never endure
    A forbidden desire

    Ocean swells and turbulent air
    Of grey or perfect blue
    As fate dictates my heart’s device and twain
    They shall carry me to you.

    Providence shall abdicate
    And leave love within our care
    For nothing else shall then dictate the love
    That you and I will share.
