Patriotism is Gay

Red… White… and the Blue
All your phony b.s. just makes me want to spew
I still hate the man called Bush
Afghanistan will pull and he will push

War on Terrorism, yeah right
It’s like trying to tame the night
You can’t fight a tactic of war
I don’t care for this anymore

These people with all their damn flags
They seem so drone-ish, like a bunch of fags
“I love America”, they say
Honestly, they act like the entire year is Independence Day

With all the drugs I buy
Terrorist should have mansion now, *sigh*
You know what, fuck that
Even if I stop we’ll still have all this combat

If we entrust in God
Then all this war and “terror” seems odd
Religion is the source for all this
The only way to put out the fire is to piss

With more cops and less seclusion
September 11th seems like an optical illusion
Burn the upside down and ripped stars and stripes
Settle down and pass all the peace pipes

Kids!

and soon after the new voice comes an old .

hey guys, sorry to have been away so long, but leaving school had the unfortunate side effect of giving me a crappy internet connection, and it was way to hard to keep up with, and for some reason i hadn't written anything in months.... despite dealing with some heavy emotion, both good and bad.

anyway, my third relationship with my girlfriend ended this previous saturday, and reading through this newly revived thread reminded me i should be writing.

this doesn't have a title, but needs one. thoughts? (and isaac don't think i have no respect for you just cause i don't usually use your titles, they give me insight into what the heck i was talking about usually, so help!)

untitled
Quote:
I finally found an end
to that bunkered immortality
that had kept me safe so long;
and the sad grace of it's passing
left me alone before an unassuming world;

Lacking hate I'd seen,
and the animosity I'd feared,
and the passion i'd desired.

Love came like a hammer,
left the painting of my life
and wishes weathered and commonplace;
and left like a clear, cold wind,
washing the clouds from the starlit sky.


thanks,

-Alan

Alan, Welcome back. I always knew that you will come back someday ...
here is the titile ... [Love, Hate and The Wind] ... guess what it means ... ... there all mean the same thing ... intangibles .. ]


QHobbes ... as always ... the one voice of reason among the deaf in all of us ...

: Bogus truths
Quote:
Do you see an ending
to this eternal night
sad that it is always the same
to the blind and the needy

There is no reality
to these false assumptions
how can one live in a lie
and boast to be right

How much more of suffering
before we see the noose on our necks
like the last mile
we walk upon our own grave

Take heed and know this
even if it ends it deaths
GOD will forgive all our sins
but HE will still punish us for it
in GOD we trust
but in MEN we live by everyday
so choose the truths that comes our way
for these are the only decisions
we are given while we walk our condemned life


This is a reflection to what QHobbes poem.
Maybe not as literate as his, but it is what I think ...

enjoy.

Your welcomed Alan, Though if you don't use it ... I think I will ..


: Love, Hate and the wind
Quote:
Like the breeze that combs my face
I feel the helplessness in my heart
unable to stop the tears inside of me
the knife that cuts deep is that of love

Like the sunshine that baths upon my skin
I feel the illusion of warmth within
nothing but lies upon more deception
the silent killer that hate will bring

Like the air that moves around us
fully in control yet unconstricting
intangibles that lives in us all
love, hate and the wind

Those are the words that came to me when I gave you the title. For that is what it feels like within my soul.

For those who might be good in theraphy, can try to phyco-anlayze me based on my works ... ... it might be fun to know how and who I really am.

Enjoy.

[Wut up] ... ... nice depiction of excrutiating pain ...
he must have been one lazy chap ...

Anyway ... feel free to post up anytime you want. we don't descriminate on the contents ... just as long as it is not directed to anyone in particular ... ok?

here is one more

: Found
Quote:
I found a reason to breath again
I found a reason to believe
I found an answer to a mystery
I found the path to my dreams
I found that life is everything
I found that you were always there
I found that I never bothered to say
I found that the one thing that really mattered
I found that you are that thing that makes me ... me
Thank you


Not really a poem but the lyric to a song that I keep singing today.

Enjoy.

here is today's contribution ...

: Must have been the wind
Quote:
Silently slipping into emotions again
forgoting the rationals in this domain
thinking like a child of three
without thought of failing

Without much hesitation
I creep into my most inner sanctum
looking at my deepest fears
feeling its need of comprehention

The clock is slowly ticking away
and my eyes are no longer clear
yet the pain is very much aching
trying to breakout from its containment

Eventually I move into its view
and look into its very core
only to find a little child crying
begging for a hug and some loving
simple needs that is easily given

Suddenly the pain is no longer there
and a burden is released from its chain
only the cooling breeze upon my face remembers
as the concerns drifts away with the wind
something I came up from a dream ...

Sometimes it is just being me that counts

wow...that took a while to catch up on, but was definitely worth the read, im glad this thread hasnt died, such talented people we have here at winamp. Sorry for my long absence, just needed some time away to collect myself, but I am feeling good now, and will try to get back to writing poetry, so heres my first stab ast it in a while:


Nameless poem


Flitting wings of gold
lofting on the breeze
drifting aimlessly
over plains and trees
wandering forever
into hither and yon
resting never
continuing on
timeless as the mountains
ageless as the sea
never locked away
always flowing freely


hope you enjoy it, first one in a long time, will try to start posting more now.

Bound by chain of dwarven magic, A tale of trickery, long and tragic,
Sword in jaw, awaiting the day, Ragnarok, when all gods shall pay

Blind

The World is Blind
Blind to see the truth right before them
To understand what is really there
Chasing their own tails in a never ending vicious circle
Never truly knowing were they are
And were they aught to be
Trapped in a wide expanse of emptiness
Filled with puzzles and questions
Its so simple its scary
But so complicated to the naive
Why can`t the world just turn around their minds
And see the true light
But the blindness is never ending
The tangled webs we weave
And suffrage which we create for ourselves
Will this madness ever end?
When will this whole world fall on its knees?
In tears we should be!
For nothing is more sorrowful
Than the world we have created
What we have become
Blind

: Lover Appeal
Quote:
Let it be me
so say me to GOD
When the time for us to be judge
I will bare the burden

Let it be you
that stays safely behind
and enjoy life ever after
without knowing pain inside

Let it be us
that makes the difference
with moonlight kisses
and silent nights
hand in hand
venturing into the unknown


A poem ... something that I wrote on a knapkin during breakfast ...

enjoy

Loved your version of "Blind" Joshua.

Here's my latest contribution to this neverending thread:
____________________________________________
Someday the Dreams Will End by Lee

Everyday as I pass by your world,
Dreaming of the days that you would be my girl,
That smile on your face, your beautiful blue eyes,
As you wave your hand and say 'Hi'.

We would pass notes in class,
Or bump each other as we pass,
Sharing the love we had,
Made me feel happy and glad.

But someday the dreams and fantasies will end,
For in due time, our love will finally be amend',
Because our love will grow to near infinity,
Our souls will last an eternity.

And yet another friend is made via sharing our true self.

Joshua post as often as you can, and I believe that things will become even more interesting than ever before.

: The Sleeping mind
Quote:
When the night comes over us
we tend to let our mind slip away
into a world of silent movies
where every meaning is shrouded behind a veil
nothing is ever what it really is
almost like a lie that is almost true
a picture with hidden treasures

A frame of thought boxed into reality
nothing withstanding its sharp edges
slicing into our soul and life
a dream so real that it can kill
almost like a storm of gentle winds
breaking every man that stands in its way

Yet the sleeping mind
does not distinguish its perceptions
where pains of the heart
hurts as much as the pain in the body
only to end with a broken soul
forever spiraling into the empty space
surrendering to the darkness void
that consumes the last vintage of light in us
the hope of waking up from this eternal sleep



Do not know how I write these stuff, but the words just flows.
Almost like it has a life of its own.

Hope you enjoy it.

Man that's exactly how I write. I comletely loose myself. That peoms describes me entirely. Here's one I wrote a little while back

Set Me Free
--------------------
Lord set me free
Take me away from this place
The pain seems never ending
Yet you bear smiles on your face
Your love is never ending
Or this is hat I hear
But where were you lord
When I needed you here
Please lord set me free
This world does not accept my empathy
So lost are they
That even I can't help them free
My sea of maddness overflows
For I can't stand this place alone
This world of fears and sorrow
Lord please take me home
I can't take this any longer
This world you call your own
So please lord set me free
And take me to my home

Here is my thoughts from <Set Me Free>

: The center of things
Quote:
Sometimes all the answers are inside ourself
the sheer fact of a question
is the root for our agony
What is this compulsion to understand
the steel that binds us to the pain
unable to surrender to our higher callings

True flight lies in the heart
and the key is to let it go inside
let not the sin of man tie us down
for sins comes in all shapes and forms

Of vanity, we lie to ourself most often
thinking that we can solve everything
of lust, we indulge ourself in dark bidings
cheating our integrity of its rightful place

Many of times we pray for the wrong things
asking forgivness when punishment is what we need
seeking for silence when advices are required
seeing light with our eyes wide shut

The only thing that we can do
is to be honest to our trueself
and let heaven deal with the universe
we are but tools in which the world utilizes
we are the pawn in the grand chess of life
let not the proudness of us cloud us
from the truth of life
for we are but ripples in a pond
caused by the rock thrown from the creators hand


Again no idea how I can write this stuff ...
it just pours itself out.
It scares me sometimes.

Enjoy.

Her Ghost in the Fog

hi,

This isn't really a poem ... it's the lyrics to Cradle of Filth's great song "Her Ghost in the Fog". It's actually quite poetic... so check it out.. it rulez!





"The Moon, she hangs like a cruel portrait
soft winds whisper the bidding of trees
as this tragedy starts with a shattered glass heart
and the Midnightmare trampling of dreams
But on, no tears please
Fear and pain may accompany Death
But it is desire that shepherds it's certainty
as We shall see..."

She was divinity's creature
That kissed in cold mirrors
A Queen of Snow
Far beyond compare
Lips attuned to symmetry
Sought Her everywhere
Dark liqoured eyes
An Arabian nightmare...

She shone on watercolours
Of my pondlife as pearl
Until those who couldn't have Her
Cut Her free of this World

That fateful Eve when...
The trees stank of sunset and camphor
Their lanterns chased phantoms and threw
An imquisitive glance, like the shadows they cast
On my love picking rue by the light of the moon

Putting reason to flight
Or to death as their way
They crept through woods mesmerized
By the taffeta Ley
Of Her hips that held sway
Over all they surveyed
Save a mist on the rise
(A deadly blessing to hide)
Her ghost in the fog

They raped left...
(Five men of God)
...Her ghost in the fog

Dawn discovered Her there
Beneath the Cedar's stare
Silk dress torn, Her raven hair
Flown to gown Her beauty bared
Was starred with frost, I knew Her lost
I wept 'til tears crept back to prayer

She'd sworn Me vows in fragrant blood
"Never to part
Lest jealous Heaven stole our hearts"

Then this I screamed:
"Come back to Me
I was born in love with thee
So why should fate stand inbetween?"

And as I drowned Her gentle curves
With dreams unsaid and final words
I espied a gleam trodden to earth
The Church bell tower key...

The village mourned her by the by
For She'd been a witch
their Men had longed to try
And I broke under Christ seeking guilty signs
My tortured soul on ice

A Queen of snow
Far beyond compare
Lips attuned to symmetry
Sought Her everywhere
Trappistine eyes
An Arabian nightmare...

She was Ersulie possessed
Of a milky white skin
My porcelain Yin
A graceful Angel of Sin

And so for Her...
The breeze stank of sunset and camphor
My lantern chased Her phantom and blew
Their Chapel ablaze and all locked in to a pain
Best reserved for judgement that their bible construed...

Putting reason to flight
Or to flame unashamed
I swept form cries
Mesmerized
By the taffeta Ley
Or Her hips that held sway
Over all those at bay
Save a mist on the rise
A final blessing to hide
Her ghost in the fog

And I embraced
Where lovers rot...
Her ghost in the fog

Her ghost in the fog





--- Now that's what i call awesome lyrics

Welcome Hamylde, the lyrics is so sad, my heart seem to have sank just by reading it.

Do you have any more of these nice poems to share?

Oh it is ok to post lyrics, for we are not picking on works by individuals, but rather poetry in general.

joshuaTree, Thanks for your complement. I am not that good, there are plenty more on this forum who are better, I am merely more expresive. I love poetry. It frees the soul of its chain.

Will hopefully post something later on.

Thanks again for all of your participation.

Resting inside my mind
With my thoughts swarming around you
And about you
You are my secret
My mystery
My "what if"
The words will never leave my mouth
To tell you is to kill you
And I love you too much

For You by Lee
August 20 2002

On the wings of a wondrous bird,
Flying through a sea of blue,
Past the puffy white clouds,
I'm coming for you.

To be in your arms together,
Will it be me and you,
I dream our love will last forever,
Hold me tight in your arms,
Hope we have the strength together,
So we can be here forever.

I've missed you from this day onward,
As I look into the crystal ball for a future,
Your face is near and grows cuter.

I watched you from above like an angel,
Pondering and dreaming of the love we share,
Sometimes I cry my eyes out just because I am for you,
And I know our love is true,
Cause baby, I love you.

Hi...

Well if it's ok to post poetic lyrics... then I've got another on. This one is from Dream Theater... it's called "A Change of Seasons"... Keep in mind that this song is based on the movie/book "Dead Poets Society"

ENJOY!

"A Change Of Seasons"
Music by Dream Theater
Lyrics by Mike Portnoy



I remember a time
My frail, virgin mind
watched the crimson sunrise
Imagined what it might find

Life was filled with wonder
I felt the warm wind blow
I must explore the boundaries
Transcend the depth of winter¹s snow

Innocence caressing me
I never felt so young before
There was so much life in me
Still I longed to search for more

But those days are gone now
Changed like a leaf on a tree
Blown away forever
into the cool autumn breeze

The snow has now fallen
and my sun's not so bright
I struggle to hold on
with the last of my might

In my den of inequity
viciousness and subtlety
struggle to ease the pain
struggle to find the same

Ignorance surrounding me
I¹ver never been so filled with fear
All my life's been drained from me
The end is drawing near...


I'll always remember
The chill of November
The news of the fall
The sounds in the hall
The clock on the wall ticking away
"Seize the Day"
I heard him say
Life will not always be this way
Look around
Hear the sounds

Cherish your life while you're still around
We can learn from the past
But those days are gone
We can hope for the future
But there might not be one

The words stuck in my mind
alive from what I've learned
I have to seize the day
To home I returned

Preparing for her flight
I held with all my might
Fearing my deepest fright
She walked into the night
She turned for one last look
She looked me in the eye
I said, "I Love You... Good-bye"


So far or so it seems
All is lost with nothing fulfilled
Off the pages and the T.V. screen
Another world where nothing¹s true

Tripping through the life fantastic
Lose a step and never get up
Left alone with a cold blank stare
I feel like giving up

I was blinded by a paradise
Utopia high in the sky
A dream that only drowned me
Deep in sorrow, wondering why

Oh come let us adore him
Abuse and then ignore him
No matter what, don't let him be
Let's feed upon his misery
Then string him up for all the world to see

I¹m sick of all your hypocrites
holding me at bay
And I don't need your sympathy
to get me through the day

Seasons change and so can I
Hold on Boy. No time to cry
Untie these strings, I'm climbing down
I won¹t let them push me away

Oh come let us adore him
Abuse and then ignore him
No matter what, don¹t let him be
Let¹s feed upon his misery
Now it¹s time for them to deal with me


I¹m much wiser now
A lifetime of memories
run though my head
They taught me how
for better or worse, alive or dead
I realize there¹s no turning back
Life goes on the offbeaten track

I sit down with my son
Set to see the Crimson Sunset
May years have come and gone
I¹ve lived my life, but now must move on
He¹s my only one
Now that my time has come
Now that my life is done
We look into the sun
"Seize the day and don¹t you cry,
Now it's time to say good-bye
Even though I'll be gone,
I will live on"




I hope you like this one... it is also one of my favorites!

Lee ... long time no see ... ... welcome back.

trista .. another one of our favourites.

Hamylde ... Dream Theatre. My fav.

: Path to Eternity
Quote:
A path to other hearts
are the ways to becoming more
to understand their hurts
and then to take away their pains

Yet like all bridges in life
it has two ends
one end in their destination
the other inside of us

Seek to know ourself
before we speak of another
know that we are the point of creation
for life is what we make it to be

take heed these words
for there are the keys to our destiny
center your soul and you will know peace
center your life and you will know reality
center your world and you will be free

And my favorite artist isn’t trying to be a movie star
But all your music sounds the same
“My gay ass is missing some girl”, fucking lame

“Look at me with my blue hair and a cowboy hat”
“I made money and my record company made my hype phat”
Without your back up band you’d just sound like shit
If talent were a thing, your 5 way gay marriage would be without it

“All we do is white-guy break dance
Go on Rosie O’Donnell and act like we’re from France
Teenage girls follow us around”
Hopefully they will to, all the way six feet under ground

Nothing but 5 X Platinum
And yet no one owns 1 of ‘em
You are responsible for the downfall of music that was great
2nd, 3rd, 4th okay maybe you’ll 5th rate

Listening to it I feel like dieing
Lyrics so bad I feel like crying
How the hell do you get paid?
Probably the same way you get laid...

Hobbes my man, like the philosopher before you, you do hold a very straight view for the artistic industry ... ... well ... art today is no longer so "pure", it has been commercialized and package to become something that is "more" ... it is not just an expression of the artist, or an interpretation of the passer by, but a tool of economics ... ... of good old benjamin franklin's ...


But hey, even in this whole mist of haze, there are stil a few that still rings true, who those people are? Well, i will leave it to you to decide. Me, I just look at entertainment as entertainment, if I don't get entertained, I walk away.


Here is today.

[b]: Prophecy
Quote:
Sleeping in our mind
we ignore the words being said
thinking it is all a dream
we walk like the dead

Somewhere a girl is crying
because of humanity gone crazy
actions that is unbecoming
a future that is doom to the end

As the prophecy fortold
final days are near
where the old ways will be no more
a new begining
a new man
[b]

Don't ask me where I get this from. I dont even know myself.

Sometimes it is just being me that counts

Here's my contribution:

When I'm Gone

I never thought I die alone,
Another six months I would be unknown,
Give all my things, to all my friends,
They'll never set foot in my room again.

You'll never see me anymore,
Never see me laugh or be bored,
Just fading into nothingness,
To die in loneliness.

I'm too depressed, to go on...
Don't be sorry when I'm gone.....

Maybe someday we will know the truth ... no?

: All thats left
Quote:
Now I do not want to sound sad
Nor do I think that I am dead
but the truth be told of things in life
we are always an alone
a single individual in the known and unknown

We band together and call it whole
yet the bond we share will seldom hold
the trust we assume is but a lie
yet it gives peace to a guy

Nothing more and nothing less
this world is as meaningless as it gets
see what it is and be done with it
cause even in death it will still exists


Enjoy.

Here is today's poem.

: Mental
Quote:
I think my mind has gone for a walk
because I dont make sense anymore
I see and yet I don't see at all
know and not know at the same time

Holding on by a thread of sanity
I fumble, strive and climb
hoping against all odds that I will survive
just so to live a simple life

Linking my mind to my body
I feel the pain at both sides
the yearning for release
the cry for eternal peace
to die with a smil on my face
ultimately I am just another mental case
in this mother of all asylums
which we live through our life


Enjoy.

The Square Root of Negative One Divided by Zero 2:
Infinity Minus Infinity Still Equals Infinity

My brain feels like a void
When it comes to love I tend to avoid
Life seems like it was faked
Maybe I should stop being so baked

They talk about a war with Iraq
And all I think is, “Hey babe, nice rack”
If Bush would pull his thumb out of his ass
Then we could get some low prices on gas

I may be just another American zero
but at least I don’t worry about the deniro
Everyone says to lay off the drugs
Well lay off the hate and pour on the hugs

Anyway you want it; it’s all the same
“America is freedom”, they all proclaim
Don’t make the same mistake twice
And don’t listen to my shitty advice

Forget everything I just said
Because, well, Ha Ha You’re Dead
You fell for your own practical joke
And now your rich ass is flat broke

Queen once said, “Nothing really matters”
While space and time still shatters
“I don’t ask for perfection... I expect it”
I’ll admit that I commit, oh shit! Gotta split...

i'm back again.

wrote something a night or two ago, when i really wasn't in the best mood. came out something like this:

Quote:
CLOAK

standing here, laboring in this
thousand-year-old suit,
with the walls of my labour built high around me
comes another digger,

burning,
burning.

Been wrapped up so long, pacing the
thousand-year-old path,
walking up the mason walls to add another
rung to this endless climb,

burning,
burning.

Brought the rain and the wind and the
thousand-year-old flame,
and the sight to see past these heavy-layered walls
and this frostbitten heart,

burning,
burning.

Promise me I do not write in vain;
Promise me there's
more to life,
more to love,
more to time, than this.

burning,
burning.

Climb up and set another brick,

burnt.


let me know what you think. i've reread it, and i can't get much other than the general mood of it. if anyone sees anything specific in it (analyzing it, anyone? ) let me know.

-A

ps. isaac, nice work lately, though it seems to be getting darker... am i seeing things? and, the same thing seem's to be happening for me too. ah well, live life.

Ahh...PhotoFX it's nice to see you posting here again. Nice poem but took me a while to get the gist of it..good work
_______________________________
If I... by Lee

If I had your heart to hold,
To hold you when it's cold,
Wipe away the tears,
And calm your fears.

If I had the time to tell you,
That I loved every part of you,
I would,
I could.

I didn't know how it would turn out,
To either turn around and shout,
"I love you more than anything in the world"
To let her know that you're my one and only girl.

But now the chance is gone,
I'm left with nothing to love,
If I had that choice to say this,
"I loved you, but you never said you loved me"
And thy love is lost....

Sorry for the silence guys.

Have been sticking my head on work for days now ... still seeing vb codes all round.

Anyway ... welcome back photo ... ... it is always nice to see you around.

As for the dark mood? Well ... it is not really that darkish, just another perspective in things.

And the fact is that I don't like sugar coating things ... just the way that they are.

I am still the half cup full guy, but that does not mean I don't it is half empty as well.

Talk to you guys soon.

well you're the one who chooses what to write about, so i suppose i looked at it from the point of what's being written about reflects the attitude.... etc, etc. anyway, most of the time people don't just think "i'll think i'll write about something tragic today" or some such.

anyway, nothing's come to me recently, but i have decided to kind of not talk to people for a week, as much as possible. we'll see how that goes. and i might finally have convinced myself to become a composition major... we'll see about that too.

Sea of Forgotten Memories by Lee

A soul lost in a sea of memories,
No one there to comfort him,
Nor share their love,
For he once lived with apathy.

He searched the world,
To look for his perfect girl,
Only to find out that there was one,
But to be betrayed and shot with a gun.

Wondering aimlessly through the vastness of space,
....Searching...searching for that perfect love,
Until he came about and found a beautiful face,
And he knew he found the perfect one.

Ten years later, they broke up,
Leaving him with a broken heart,
A sad conclusion to this story,
Cause his soul had to part.

Lee, as always, the darkside shows again no? ... ... nicely written.

Sorry guys for the long silence. Am in knee deep of work these days, not much time to check my mail let alone poetic creation.

But none the less here is today's work.

: Moving on
Quote:
Black skies loom over the horizon
threatening to cover my life
showing me the futility in resisting
taunting me to let it all go.

Yet my stuborn soul will not admit
the defeat that is so forth coming
denying that finality of the event
saying nothing is over untill it is over

What lies at the end is unsure
heaven or hell it might be both
no one knows and I don't care
it is the journey that I concentrate
the companions and the experience
forever burned into my soul

So on wards we march into darkness
bringing it one last vestige of life
the flickering light within our chest
hope, dreams and laugther
knowning that at the end
atleast we died trying
where life can end with its meaning intact


Enjoy.

In Your Arms
by Janet James



You hands glide through my hair
Holding me so close to you
I listen to your heart beat
It’s so soothing to hear

Looking up I see my baby
Your deep brown eyes catch my attention
Never have I felt a deeper love
Than what is seen in your face right now

Our little games we play
Would seem so childish to others
But to us it shows our love
And reminds us of memories past

No mater what happens
Through our time together
The memories we spend in the
Arms of one another will last forever to us

something about my life with the love of my life ...

: The Picture Frame
Quote:
Everytime I look into your eyes
I see my future sparkle like a star
I feel the waves upon my chest
beating the each breath out of me

Whenever I think of my days ahead
I can't help but give a sigh
No longer able to imagine a life alone
without you holding my hand

You have becomed my eveything
My life, My breath, My soul
You are the frame in which I live within
my definition of tranquility
now and eternity



Made a mistake ... and now ... might need to pay the consequences.

congrats on your love life...

If only i can make girls swoon when i read poetry to them...

Crumbling Away from Time
September 9 2002

My days are over,
And my life turns bleak,
Soul creaks as it grows older,
And I'm feeble and weak.

My skin is parched and dry,
Eyes have turned to stone,
I can't do things, like cry,
Sooner I'll be nothing but bones.

My mind thinks of death,
Swirling around like bumble bees,
I'm losing it, there's nothing left,
The brain, as small as a pea.

This poor soul is at an end,
I can no longer thirst for lust,
For I am just bones and dust.

just wrote this while looking out my window

Whenever I love
Where does that love go?
Does it wander in the darkness
With my missing thoughts
That disintegrate in the night?
Or does it find some unknowing heart
And leak in--
A little bit at a time,
Like some poison of life
That might reveal a constancy in the wind
Or a pattern to the tides?
Because everything follows love,
As do my thoughts
Straying out to the darkness
