Sea of Forgiveness by Lee

Where will you be when I'm gone?
Trifled by hopelessness and sorrow,
Bounded to this world of regrets,
Withered away slowly by dull shards
[of a faded memory......

Do you blame it all on me?
Your heart in wretched denial,
Surrounded by a haze of vengeance,
Losing control of everything around
this sphere of reality.....

Does hate burn in your eyes?
Flames engulfing film on paper,
Only temporary happiness can ease the suffering,
As you scavenge for ways to calm the storm
of a thousand lies.....

Destiny has its ways, fate determines outcome,
Let me go, to banish the sorrow, guilt, and pain,
Until we meet again amongst a sea of stars
Burning in the night sky of forgiveness....

Two parts going on...The Siren is the one indented and ital.
________________________________________________________

Calling of the Siren by Lee

Looking upon an endless sea of blue,
Hoping one day that you'll come back,
From your watery grave,
So I may never feel the pain again.

It happened so fast, the current pulled me under,
Memories flashed before my eyes like rolling thunder,
As I drifted downward away into the world unknown,
Lurking amongst shadows alone.

My body decayed, but the spirit lives on,
Knowing that hope to reach you is gone,
So I hum the tune that we always danced to,
Our way of saying "I Love You".


A lullaby carried by wind to my ears,
The sweet song of love I remember,
Melodies I haven't heard in years,
As it blows off the surf on a cool November.

Her presence, so close, as if she was beside me,
I found you my love, come with me to the sea
Her breath sent shivers down my spine,
Come with me, it's an offer you can't decline

Drawn closer to her melodic voice,
Fading in reality and entering fantasy,
There were no other choice,
But to venture out into open territory.

The tide pulled me under, but I wasn't dying,
As I followed her muse coming from the abyss,
Discovering an ethereal spirit crying,
Mended her heart and mine again with a kiss.

My love, you came, but how are you still alive
I couldn't bear to see you perish, I rather die with you,
Then watch you fade from my memory,
You came for me and died alongside me
Against the merciless Alantic Sea

The current carried me away, but your song brought me today,
So I may see those wonderful heavenly rays.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Brought together by songs of joy and happiness,
With sorrow broken by love eternally,
An embrace lasting forever endless,
Enchanting the seas for eternity....

Aren't we all trying to figure out the goings in our lives? We seek answers to unsolved questions. I say...enjoy life..you're the only one that can make that choice....
but when we live life, aren't we finding the answers to those questions? as human beings we strive to know the unknown, understand the understanble, do the impossible, its what drives us, so our lives are about answering those unsolved questions, enjoying life is simply relishing in our discovery and/or mastery of new things.

|--1 Poem by John
|-Lost
|Shifting between realities
|Sliding through imaginary lines
|Passing between countless dreams
|Nothing is real
|That is certain
|But certainty breeds uncertainty
|In this world of something
|One true truth
|In one false world
|One more then I can take
|I want to embrace the nothing
|Yet insanity stops my sanity
|So I wander along the lines
|Nothing is real
|Leaving no one to blame
|One person's heaven
|One person's hell

Magic and Endura ... I personally agree on both your take on that matter. there is and never will be an answer to this question asks. every one that lives today will walk their on path with their own obstacles. no one can tell us that what we do is correct for our life or not, as at the end, we are the only that can be held responsible for it all.

And Magic ... your newest post is really inspiring. I love it. it sings like the sea to me, almost like swimming and flying. great work.

John, I think I have read this poem before in the prior pages, or something similar by you. Maybe it is the wordings ... ... but still it is a good piece of work.

Here is my two cents for today ...

: Heart of the lost
Quote:
I held on to it
longer than I had to
not wanting to let it go
afraid what lies after it
I want to be angry
I want to hate him for doing so
but somehow it just no longer feel right
the anger no longer sustains my burden
its power wains away as time pass
yet I still cling to it
if I can't hate him what can I do
If I don't have hate I will fall apart
I will crumble under the weight of sorrow
I am afraid of another betrayal
I am fearful of the night
what else is there
if I dont have that shield to protect me
how can I survive these endless pain
I wish I knew how
I wish I was dead


When I wrote the poem, I feel exactly the same way, but at the end when I finished, I realised, sometimes, maybe I should let the event passed, and the sorrow consume me, then when I am done with the sorrow, I can move on. It will never be the same again but I will be alive and hopefully wiser.

Enjoy.

Sometimes it is just being me that counts

today I was browsing through some stuff and I came upon some chinese proverbs. And this got stuck in my head.

: Unfolding the fold
Quote:
more often than not
we make up reason for being cruel
we tell ourselves we have no choice
bend our knees or be pushed a side
we cheat ourselves from our destiny
by allowing others to dictate our options
we tell ourselves so much lies
that we start believing in them
why is that we always take the easy way
nothing worth doing is ever easy
as the saying goes
the birds sings not because it has an answer
it sings because it has a song
i cannot tell you what to do
I can only show you a path
you are the only one that matters
you are your own fate unfold


yes, it sounds more like a narration than a poem. But I can't seem to write it any other way.

they are many more in my mind, but this stood out most.

Curse not the darkness, light a candle.

Enjoy.

I just saw this on an online comic, it is so funny that I would love to share it with you all ...

: Over my dead ... By Ryan Shomer and Trevor Adams
Quote:
It started so well
that late winter night
quite hot she looked
I must say at first sight
her shirt she took off,
with naught even a care,
and thats when I saw
this girl was covered in hair
and I said unto her
while I do crave some nookie
I'll be dammed my dear
if I sleep with a wookie


You can read their comic at
http://www.leasticoulddo.com/comics/

The contents there are a little crude ... but it is funny.

Hope you guys enjoy it.

A Restless night


The sleep sets. The dream plays

A rain steps on my ears

A glass shimmering in morning light
wears the history of past nights

the ground stays clear of the sun's warmth

my eyes became molded to memories that chose to die long ago

flora made of ice became of the air I tried so hard to breath

A conscious drifter in this connectivity between me and the sound I love not to see

Footsteps carve into my vision like dripping paint

The lights are whispering to I
With every whisper I see the light begins to fly

As the mind furthers itself from the mellow visions of weariness
A slowing of the warming heart, prestigious but sore, sets the path towards the soil I dare lay on now

The face begins to search fore a fabled expression
But it retracts to a stable lesser me

Startling ease of thought came over me
Mesmerized by sorrow
I fled my pain inside
To be at peace with this cowardice

The conveying scenery persuaded me back to sleep
Sleeping, in the whispers I play with my weaknesses
Taunting the absences of you
I must admit
Life with out you is like a craft without a maker
Aimless, seamless, breathless, homeless

Restless, I bargain a feud with sleepless hours, just to think of you
Just to find that I keep starting over from the beginning
trying to retrace my footsteps,
But getting nowhere fast, questioning my stability.
Why do I feel so safe in my dreams?
Is it cause I'm dreaming of you because I feel I need you?
Or is it cause I'm dreaming of you and there's nothing you can do about it?
Love? or control?
Do I miss you? Or miss being there for you?
All I know, is my dreams are the only place I can see you
and have my memories play near you
the street lights out side my window
are all I have left to see you with
amongst the shadows draped in moonlight

One day I'll come back to you,
Until then
Be patient with me and let me find you with silent thoughts
Let me come back to you in the only way I know how
With time......

Another one of ryan shomers work ...
it is hilarious.

: The decision by Ryan Shomer and Trevor Adams
Quote:
She's not shy about it
so everyone can see
but whats really disturbing
is that she's been with 10 times more people than me
a decision must be made
about just what I should do
do I sleep with this girl
or find someone new
One tequila, two tequila, three tequila more
man, I am really wasted
might as well sleep with the whore


As I said before they are crude but to some extent I find them entertaining.

I am unable to say it to anyone but I can write it in a poem. These are the things that I think day and night. But at the end, I always end up with more questions than answers. What say you?

: What is it?
Quote:
Defining it is tough
it is never the same for all
for some it is simple
for other it is hard
like me for instance
I find that I am lost most of the time
but I am afraid of all of the time
yet I struggle on still to catch that balance
and wish that I have had a better deal
is it about settling with what we have
and forgeting about what we deserve
is it really worth crawling up the steep steps
just so we can say we have been there, done that?
I don't know
and frankly I am starting to do not care
what is love you might ask
well to me it is this
love is many things if not just pain
love is the thorn in the rose of things
love is me and my dream
and love is anything but easy
so if you want love you will have to decide
are you willing to give up all that is you
and bet on that love will endure
your choice, their game.
Enjoy.

thanks for reminding me. ... identities are a real mix here in the forums ...

: Burdens of conscience
Quote:
how I wish it was simple
just like raindrops
just like summer breeze
all i wanted was silence
no more hassle
free from struggle
yet as the grass bends for the wind
I too bend to destiny
like a giant mouse trap
I struck it without knowing better
and even in such darkest hour goodness prevails
now with my secreats are exposed
I am free to change
no more hiding in my closet
let the world know
there is a new me


I started writing the poem below as a comment, then ended up with this.

: Seeing it new
Quote:
we are the slaves of our own desires.
we are the slaves of our own weakness.
we are the slaves of our own secreats.
break free from it
and you will know a different sky
one that is trully blue
one that can accomodate you.


then at the end are we not just slaves of our mind?
I can't put that in the poem, but that is the reason behind writing it ...

Enjoy.

I will post a new poem tomorrow!

I'm mad at myself right now because I wrote it during Drivers Ed class tonight, and I forgot to take the notebook home that I wrote it in!!

"It's like saying give a man a Les Paul guitar and he becomes Eric Clapton, and of course that's not true, give a man an amplifier and a synthesizer and he doesn't become...whoever; he doesn't become us." - Roger Waters

Dear Pixel, it happends to the best of us, you just starting to loose your mind. Give it another few years, you won't even remember why you are angry ...

anyhow, I have out of the loop for sometime, due to, yes, yet another sets of deadlines that have yet to kill me. I swear that who ever evented that term knew that hell waits at the other side.

: Prelude to judgement
Quote:
rythmitics rhyming in my mind
holding on my thin thread of sanity
like playing on a cliff
I dare destiny in its face
kill me if you can
leave me if you will
I will never bow to you
you filthy son of kwangduk
let your vile lies smear elsewhere
for I am not letting you in again
destiny be dammed
if this is what I am destined
then destiny has something else coming
for I am your worst nightmare
the one that you don't remember
but haunt you even awake
you will pay
as I am pissed


Oh ... actually I am not even sure where that came from, I am in a happy mood. The strange things I write without concious thought.

Enjoy.

And yet another one of my more querky poems.

: Bridging The Devide
Quote:
what is that line we draw
difference in opinions
a bar to gauge our intentions
that which offers us peace of mind
yet that same invisible range
sets us on our path to confusion
a road that only leads to temptation
as the devil lures us into its clutches
he tempts us with our wants
no measly offerings
only good intentions
the kind that leads to bad endings
our mind says it is logical to do so
and our heart says not
look further
look deeper
look inside it all
and you will know
intentions are neither good nor bad
only its consequences that does that marking
so it is not a matter of do or do not
its whether you can live with it afterwards
and carry your own cross until eternity ends


I am in one of those crazy writing zones ... give it a few more days, and I should be cured ...

Alright, computer broke down the other day, but it's all better now. Anyways...


My Unknown Dream
---------------------------------------------------------
The aura was ethereal to me; it interlocked with my aesthetic senses. This collaborating vision of unique beauty stood out in my mind; and then I heard music.

Gently the piano keys were touched creating such a graceful, eloquent, yet mysterious melody; it drifted into my head like the sea at calm.

I was lost in this powerful visage, but I felt comfortable knowing I would never be found. The light flashes of her complexion and smile was illuminating. When this light danced perfectly across her face, all that I had never envisioned had been born. The warmth of this moment created a zenith of the grand overture, and the essence of her being was at its final point of captivation. For the first time ever, I was seeing my unknown dream.
-------------------------------------------------

Not much, but yeah......it's based on the "love at first sight" kinda thing, you know

"It's like saying give a man a Les Paul guitar and he becomes Eric Clapton, and of course that's not true, give a man an amplifier and a synthesizer and he doesn't become...whoever; he doesn't become us." - Roger Waters

read it. ...

: Right before the end
Quote:
it is like a tiny light
beyond my eyes horizon
always there but can never reach it
I push my hand out
and I touch nothing
yet I could feel the warmth engross me
should it be so?
I wonder what it holds
that tiny light
that beacons me onwards
should I stay or go?
i never knew that answer.
as i felt air going through my lungs
my body jolted with spasms
and I open my eyes
then I hear them say
"clear. his alive."


told you i was in my wacky poetry zones ... it comes right after every sci-fi season opens.

Anybody told you that too much sci-fi is no good for health?

I won't know, I am still watching firefly ...

Sonnet XVII By Pablo Neruda
Quote:
I do not love you as if you were the salt-rose, or topaz,
or the arrow of carnations the fire shoots off.
I love you as certain dark things are to be loved,
in secret, between the shadow and the soul.

I love you as the plant that never blooms
but carries in itself the light of hidden flowers;
thanks to your love a certain solid fragrance,
risen from the earth, lives darkly in my body.

I love you without knowing how, or when, or from where.
I love you straightforwardly, without complexities or pride;
so I love you because I know no other way

than this: where I does not exist, nor you,
so close that your hand on my chest is my hand,
so close that your eyes close as I fall asleep.


This is the work of the Chilean poet, and diplomat, Pablo Neruda who was awarded the Nobel Prize for Literature in 1971. His further details could be found here.
http://www.kirjasto.sci.fi/neruda.htm

"He was once referred as the Picasso of poetry, alluding to his protean ability to be always in the vanguard of change. And he himself has often alluded to his personal struggle with his own tradition, to his constant need to search for a new system in each book." (Rene de Costa in The Poetry of Pablo Neruda, 1979)


This is a poem that was used in the movie patch adams. I do not know the poet very well, as this is the first time I have read his work, but I do know that I love every single word in this work of his.

Enjoy.

Jesus you guys don't half bloomin post....hello again my darlins *runs around hugging everybody* I'm sorry I haven't been around in ages but I don't really write much nowadays no ideas on what to write and I just seem to repeat myself.
I have just found this one quite random verse though -

I know your still here
Wrapped around me
As a cello whispers
You reveal your identity to my un hearing ears
A cold breeze grips my hand
Its you I know it is
You've always been here
You've always been apart of me, always here

and heres another random verse that makes no sence-

forgetting someone loves you
forgetting that they care
is such a sin, so much worse than hurting fantasies
seeing those colourful rainbows crash, in a dieing black and white world
racism is the key
its hidden among our integrity, that we buried so long ago

I'll try and come up with something, I might have something lurking about on my pc or in my notebooks upstairs.
Peace everyone

I think it is a mass poet mind blank syndrom ...

I believe that we are all suffering from having too much of a good thing ...

well here is my random verse ...

: Do you see the darkness
Quote:
Do you see the darkness?
how ironic that might seem
as we can only see light
and darkness is the absent of it
so do we really see darkness
or is it just a sense of lost
like the meaning that guides us
no more, no less
the eternal light
or the lack of it
Do you see the darkness?
or did you just close your eyes.


strangly ... I think this is one of better poems ...

enjoy.

the little hill...

Grass blowing over the hill
Small children play in the field
Such hapiness, such hapiness
Their little ball floating through the laughter

Grass blowing over the hill
The children are gone
Some have grown into respectable people
Some are controlled by substance
The laughter still echoes

Grass blowing over the hill
Atop the hill, tombstones sit
Displaying the names of those who've passed
The beautiful laughter once here is no more
Faded with the lives of the children
I posted this originally in my journal here.

Wrote this after reading yet another post 911 article.

: Look somewhere else
Quote:
Dont pity me
I am more than I seem
I just do what I have to do
I am nobodys hero
and nobodys fool
this pain is not yours to hold
nor yours to bother
I fight my own fights
and I pave my own path
So don't you dare tell me
that your war is mine
for I have lived with more terror in one day
than you have in your entire life
you hypocryt son of a female dog


What I feel sorry for are the soldiers that are sent there to fight for a war that no one wants, all for the political survival of an idiot in power.

It might be the 20th century but it sure feels like the midevil ages of kings figthing for their throwns.

Sad day.

.:: In the Walls of Troy ::.

In the walls of Troy
Speaks an angel
Who holds himself so far
So far below me

In the walls of Troy
May you forever be free
In the walls of Troy
My angel doth be

A thousand wooden horses
In the walls of Troy
Sighs an angel at peace
For all is quiet now

In the walls of Troy
May you forever be free
In the walls of Troy
My angel doth be

Winds forever groan
In the walls of Troy
The angel's deemed silence
To reign forever more

In the walls of Troy
May you forever be free
In the walls of Troy
My angel doth be

In the walls of Troy
The angel can bring
The diliverance
That you so desire

Over walls of Troy
My heart was the gate
The angel opened with one hand
And touched with the aft

In the walls of Troy
May you forever be free
In the walls of Troy
My angel doth be...

Fixed to fit the lyrics... Gods I wish you could all hear the melody...

when I open my newspaper today, I felt that the world ended there. I could not believe my eyes. and this is what I felt like.

: Death of a hero
Quote:
As my heavy heart
hold my knees to the floor
I mourn the death of an ideal
which heralds the beginning of another war
it will be the big one
the one that will end it all
what irony this is
that the bringer of this finale
is the guardian that swore to protects us
blinded by its own power and ego
how the mighty have fallen
and us crushed underneath its body
Yet still my heart goes out
to the unfortunate souls that it holds
may the long night be kinder to you
than what is installed for us all


yes. bush won. enough said.

In the arms of strangers

Hello, young child.
You're awake now
Are you lost?
Are you afraid?
You should be neither
For you are home

Do you not recognize this place?
Do you not remember your own past?
You shouldn't
Why should you?
For you are in the arms of strangers

Lost and scared
We found you alone
We held you close to keep you warm
But you were afraid
Because you were in the arms of strangers

And now you are gone
Away to live
Away from this place
You are happy now
No longer are you in the arms of strangers
I guess this doesn't really make much since. It just sort of fell out of my head randomly.

Enjoy, I hope.

Eigo no Haiku

Looking up into the eyes
Of lonely tigers
Makes broken souls rejoin.

x--x--x

Bastard children die alone
Never having thought
Sorrow is not needed.

x--x--x

Baskets woven by hand
Dropped by riverside
Lie forgotten in grass.

x--x--x

Egyptian reeds grow slowly
Cool Nile water flows
Golden sands never age.
