Does the dream convince the soul

That love is all one needs?

Does the vision convince the mind

That it can always be achieved?

Do the spirits of the night

That dance around us when we sleep

Tell us truth or tell us lies

Make us laugh or make us weep?

 

Does the daylight convince the heart

That the dreams are merely that?

Is it this, the harsh reality

That many a heart turns black?

I love you, I hate you,

I wrote upon the ground,

In petals of a daisy,

That fell without a sound.

 

I love you, I hate you,

I whispered to the night,

Upon the light of stars,

That shielded you with light.

 

I love you, I hate you,

I wrote upon the page,

Memories of weariness,

My emotions disengage.

 

I love you, I hate you,

I scream at the sea,

Fleeng from sanctuary,

To what can never be.

 

I love you, I hate you,

Spoken in my days,

As muttering maddness,

Argued mental phrase.

 

I love you, I hate you,

The former it is true,

The hate is at myself,

For being apart from you.

Whisper to my soul an everlasting dream

Remove from me my fears, the things that make me scream

Tell tales to my heart that make it sing with joy

But ensure the tales are truth, and not an evil ploy

 

I have seen you weave your words before, seen the strings you pull

You tell me things are different and I want to trust you, still

The same part of me that loves you, knows too well the games you play

Do I let my heart ignore this? What should happen if I stayed?

 

Whisper to me your promises, tell me what you intend

But first confront your demons, face your flaws and make ammends

You know I love you dearly, you know I love you true

But if I am to be treated like the others, I can have no life with you.

"Welcome to the madhouse"

A dismembered echo imparted,

To the wandering stranger

That into the room had started.

 

"It seems I am a triffle lost,

And from my world departed."

"If I can hear the ghostly voice

that my perceptions altered."

 

Mirror me my reflective gaze,

And in my haunted darkness,

Capture me my eternal toil,

or Heavens joyous fortress.

Welcome to the madhouse

the mice have eaten all the cats

or was it that the mailmen

finally learned to relax

it's unhinged here; that' why

it doesn't open too easily

 

The world looks on

and sees a place that

they find so unbelievable

that it remains invisible

to their eyes

 

We look on in sadness

as they plod through

their logical lives

so chained, so sad,

so downtrodden

 

While we with our white rabbits;

are topsy-turvy masters

of sea, earth, and sky

Pickles are bittersweet,

lemons are sour,

still seems like minutes

when we talk for hours.

Meeting means leaving,

though time spent is fun

with one who discusses

all things on the run.

i love being with you,

the time that we share,

though both of us know

that our time is no where

near as much as we'd like

to have spent being near -

sharing thoughts, sharing hearts

with ones we hold dear.

Joining and leaving

make life bittersweet.

Hope that each time we leave

means that once more, we'll meet.

 

 

with apologies, this one was totally of the cuff =)

Kill me quickly

Dam the tears

Take me away

From their hateful jeers

 

Kill me softly

No one cares

Save me from

My deepest fears

 

Kill me quickly

End it now

You said you'd help me

Keep your vow

 

Kill me softly

I don't know how

Just take my pain

Please end it now.

Inspired by leaving a friend for a while...

 

So us is this, I think as I begin to write,

Inspired to compose of a friend.

What makes you tick and I tock,

Why do we find we mesh?

Much more than any passing trend.

 

Are you a friend who will miss my leaving?

Or will you forget me till I return?

Giving voice to happy rejoining,

But inwardly wishing I would learn

That I am not really your friend.

 

I will miss you my friend,

Our talks and laughter

Your funny ways meeting

My strange thoughts and combining

In one almighty friendship.

As I begin to think of many things

Of words we've lost

Of time we 've missed

Of things passed by

------------------------------While we were apart

 

I dream of what might have been

Had I said

Had I told you

Had you known

------------------------------I love you

 

But I never said

I want

I need

I love

-----------------------------You

 

It's too late now

For love to grow

Farewell my heart

I let you go...

Slipstream falling into skies of grey

Losing myself in the depth of her gaze

Wanting so badly to feel her touch

Feel the caress that I do love so much

I yearn for her presence, I wish she were here

For her being calms me, erasing my fears

How to describe her, to make others see

The Muse that I love, who sets my soul free

Stagger into another dawn,

mug of coffee to warm my brain

and brace my heart against daggers drawn,

held close in hand to stall the drain

of vital force and energy

unfolding events often bring

as each one takes a bit of me

until there's little left to string

the thoughts and words into a whole

which makes the meaning clear to all,

yet once more step into my role,

forging forward until i fall.

Picture perfect painted sky

Drawing to my heart all

That I truely desire.

Silently setting sun adored

As in its light I see her

Standing at my side.

Warmth whispering wind's caress

Softness in her lip's soft kiss

My soul scorching in our love.

Walking wakeful and weary

Into the breaking dawn

Cool grey blue.

Picture perfect painted sky

Colour that I see ever

In my lover's eyes.

Dawn within her soft embrace

holds hope of brighter days,

with glowing colours, gentle light

illuminates the dark.

Chasing shadows, dark and long

with ever brighter shades

of shifting light in jewel tones

to tease the world awake.

Dawn creeps gently into sight

first muted, and then brilliant,

chasing shadows from my heart

as well as from the land.

Stagger into another dawn,

Shift upon the silken sheets,

Lose the paths of dreamlessness,

Walk the road of wake instead.

 

Lay upon the idle sun,

Shifting slowly to its noon.

Kiss the dawn's drawn breath

Long for the cool night moon.

 

Starlight wet upon the grass,

Caress of midnight dew,

Reflect in shards of liquidity

My mortal soul renewed.

 

:raven:

 

Hold my heart within your hand

For in your life I give, all that

In the world I have, and upon

My lost soul I survive. Within the

Beating of the treasure I give

To your soft palm, and grasp,

My love looks upon you, seeing

As I ever will, the love, that is

All I ever dreamed to find. Who

Saw my soul, yet loved me still.

Mortality faded to grey

Lifeblood slipped away

Colours fading fast

Losing once sharp contrast

Heartbeat slowly weakens

Drawing out the end

Cling to life in vain

Trying to ignore pain

Life's fight cannot last

Heard in choking gasp

Dagger's blade drinks blood

Tears of mourning's flood

Reminded of you,

to remember your kiss

and the warmth of your heart.

They say it is true

but I carry that bliss

even though we're apart.

The faceless reflections in the window fade,

as evening's lights bleeds from the sky.

The unceasing pageant of memories strayed

through her mind, deep behind shuttered eyes.

Blank is the window that leads to her soul,

lest someone should look deep within,

for all the world sees is a bright, smiling whole,

though she's broken, and bleeds for their sins.

Reminded of you,

In the empty air beside me,

Reminded of you,

When your eyes I cannot see,

Reminded of you,

When my heart slows its beat,

Reminded of you,

When my mind feels defeat,

Reminded of you,

As my world around me falls,

Reminded of you,

As I hide behind my walls,

Reminded of you,

As in my life I cry,

Reminded of you,

As alone, without you, I die.

Daylight screamed its dawning rays

Burning memories into my eyes

Sunlight sobbed for moments lost

Choking on its unspoken cries

Winter harshness attacks this world

Killing around me all I love

Snowfall burns uncovered skin

Needles from wind's unkind shove

 

Darkness comes in peaceful calm

Bringing back my solitude

Crystal evening, silver moon

Leaving me once more to brood

Love's form then begins to heal

Night's protection in the void

Tomorrow, soon, I will see You

Now my heart is overjoyed

Crystal water, pure in form,

Wash the lover's pain,

From the wounds that love has drawn,

Rinse them clean again.

 

The liquid light of lonely hearts,

Glimmers in the sadness

That sings of love as she departs,

Draining away the gladness.

 

Crystal water, pure in form,

Rinse my soul again.

Crystal water, pure in form.

Make us one again.

Sleep walks my weary mind

In search of certain rest,

But all that it can find

Are second thoughts, at best,

And though the drooping windows slowly fade,

My pen rejects relief, and writes, unswayed,

And, on the paled page,

The words of weakness weave

A playful web; their stage

Is but a slight reprieve

From unfilled hopes of dreaming in one's bed,

For we have thought - the poet's curse - instead.
