I spiraled downward

Hit bottom hard and broken

Even though it was she

that took a leap of unfaithfulness

Leaving me here
, eviscerated

Washing off the black blood of betrayal

Feeling branded, marked and unworthy

Blinded and foolish,

I stagger up on to my feet

‘It wasn’t meant to be’ I say out loud

‘It’s all for a reason’ right?

This. too. shall. fucking. pass. I spit

Hardness envelops me

Protection mode engaged

Fool me once… fuck everyone afterwards

Seasons roll on past me

The rain washes away the dirt

I smile more, make a joke

Friends call again

The sun seems so bright

The days longer than the nights

The heart re-blooms with the sweet morning sun

Rain

When we knew each other before
I'm not sure when
Past life, between lives...
All I know is I called you Rain
Probably not spelled like this
But, the real sound was 'Rain'
And, it was you.

I have no doubts now. It's you.
Your eyes contain the soul I know
Even your smile radiates Rain
An energy connection from long ago
still felt from so far away

Rain has occasional clouds
but her spirit is clear and sunny
Rain has amazing eyes that clearly see
the hard lessons we're here to learn
I'm so grateful I've found the Rain again
Because I am growing now too.

Electricity

A visible energy surrounds her body

I see a faint glow

She has a look that halts time when directed at you

and the world moves in slow motion

So,

We dance

We fly

We dream

We sing

We make love

We soar through the golden sunset clouds

Choosing one for our bed

We

Your essence swirls around me

Like a warm familiar wind

Yet, I’ve never met you, never seen you

You send me thoughts so comforting

they could almost be my own

But they’re in a different voice

I see visions through your eyes

and the world looks so much better

Until I open mine

Leap Before You Look

Posted: January 31, 2014 in Poems

With a leap of faith

We could be right now

Just what you imagined we’d become

Risk is the key to beginning

Move your pawn

Wait for my next move

I will surprise you

Growing Pains

A downtown working whore, or some cheap barroom score just leave me a little worse off than before, and all the scotch in the world won’t change a goddamned thing.

Maybe a fast new car, a new Z1-R, a brand new way to get high and all those things money can buy – will make me happy for just a while.

All those things don’t last very long, and I found out I was really wrong, hell it’s just that I don’t like who I am.

Baby it’s not that I didn’t love you, or want you around – I just didn’t love me and had no idea how. I didn’t think you possibly could either.

I bought in to others ideas of who I was, and their concepts of success and love – and hell, it’s a wonder I could even look at me in the mirror.

So I got myself a big magnifying glass, got up off my lazy ass and started looking to see just who I was.

Will I recognize me when I find me? Will I shake my own hand? Congratulate myself on becoming a better man?

Well, after all that I’m not such a bad guy, I learned to laugh and allowed myself to cry.

Damn, sometimes life just gets better and better.

Everything

You cannot be everything for me

I would never try to make you that

I know I am not everything for you

I cannot be

But, you can be my oasis in this desert,

And I can be your rain.

I feel so needy

Learn to love yourself

I feel so alone

It’s okay to be alone with you

People won’t like the ‘real me’

No, not until you like the real you

It’s so hard to talk to people

Yes it is when you’re not living in the moment

But, I don’t have lots of money, a cool car, or…

Is that what you admire in the people you know and love?

I am such an ordinary guy

Welcome to the human race my friend, you’ll be just fine

Poison

Her mind manipulated him like a marionette

He moved at her will, posed as she wished

For him, there was no way out, but he’d not have gone if there was

She was a delicious poison that he had to drink of

She was his eyes, his thoughts, she made his words

His soul? He knew he hadn’t one

She had taken it with a look when he somehow saw her face

The ties that bind are unseen, stronger than steel and thin as air

“I’m alive! But how?” he thought

“I’m trapped, but trapped in what? A dream maybe?”

A willing captive in a beautiful prison

His desire for her so strong, but with no way to reach her

His passion so great, but no way to touch her

A chill…

He began to understand who he was to her

“Let me go!” he tried to shout, but there was no sound

No voice, because she had not given him one

Would she soon kill him without even knowing it?

How could she? She wouldn’t if she only knew…

He felt the truth though, and accepted his fate

A dream can only last so long

Then the dreamer must wake

He’d be gone with the opening of her eyes

Not to return, not even on another night

It wouldn’t be him then

A new dream

A Dream of You

Last night as I lay sleeping I suddenly felt your touch

Your image appeared before me as I sat up in my bed

Your eyes were shining, almost aglow

Your mouth moving to speak, but I heard no sound

Your image was shimmering like a scene through waves of heat

Fading and unclear

I reached out to touch you before you faded away

But my hands found nothing, and you faded a bit more

Through the welling tears in my eyes, I could still see you

I knew if I reached out once more you’d be gone

My reach, my desire to possess

Possessions we ultimately lose

But if I stood still, and saw you with my heart

And let you see mine

Out in the open

Nothing hidden

We’d be closer than ever before

The link of hearts and souls
