Lost in Lament

Featured

Its 2 in the morning and I’m dreaming of dreaming
I’m filled till I’m bursting , these words they come streaming
Thoughts only of you , From my mind they are screaming
And then the tears flow  , From my heart they are bleeding

If I had the power Id turn back  some time
And go to that moment when u were still mine
Id caress every sorrow and answer all prayers
Id take back the words that had made you so scared
Id undo the harm that caused you to question
Id unveil the mask that had hid my affections
Id look in your eyes and  steady your breathing
And tell you that I share,  all that your dreaming

I’d strengthen your back with my arms round your side
And hold you and tell you theres never reason to hide
Id talk with you quietly , while you tell me your fears
Id react only lovingly so to cause you no tears
Id carry you proudly when you need me there
and wait for you patiently  when you need some air
I’d adapt to all conflicts and fulfill all your needs
Id be all you wanted and exceed all your dreams

Its three in the morning and I’m ailing from wailing
My throat is so sore , from these feelings I’m airing
And my core is so raw , coz my armor , its failing
I’m lonely and scared , coz its me that I’m baring

I know its just fantasy , I know its all fake
I know that its over , we no longer share fates
But I’ve learned from our past , I see the mistakes
I know who I can be , and now know what it takes
I look to the future , and to new friendships there
Im ready and able to show how I care.

I do have the power , I can affect my own mind
And I will grow stronger , and better with time
I will  no longer hide , I will no longer fear
I can allow someone in , if they want to get near
I will miss you forever , theres no time that I won’t
But I’ll always remember , that its my choice to  hurt.

Its four in the morning , as I stare at the ceiling
I hope for some comfort , some respite from feeling
I am so close to numb now  , and I’m dreaming of being
a part of love again  , with someone new I’ll be seeing

A Night in the Wood

The forest fresh , a sniff
The wispy breeze  , a whiff
The nights’ mistress , a glowing witness
to an eve,  in the wooden abyss

The tent lay upon the ground , hard and sound
The sleeping bag and pack , strewn around
Another night, with just the moonlight
flitting amongst the trees ,
messing with your sight

Peering in the dark , Black … what is that peering back !?

A reflective light ? Playing on your eyesight ?

Slowly squeeze and squint your eyes
faint and fine …….. barely see the outline

Don’t move a muscle …. Shhhhhh…. Do you hear that rustle ?

Pop your ears , Ahhhhhh … now what do you hear ?

A hissssssss  , so slight you almost missed it
Slowly turn , all fear resisted
Dont move too fast , easy .. stomach queasy
Dont start nor jump , feel your heart pump

There’s something there , growwllll …. You feel your hair
stand on end , this is a nightmare

Though your minds volcanic , there is no time to panic
You must slowwww your thoughts …  This fear you fought
can erupt – and your will  , corrupt

Remain steadfast , as time slows past
no sight or sound , ‘cept your temple pound

Ba dum .. Bad um .. ba Doom
Ba dum .. Bad um .. ba Doom

Snap ! Crack .. its on the attack
Run ! Run … scramble and run
Pound the ground , footfalls sound
Crash ! Smash .. thru the brush
Crunch , a bunch of leaves , crushed
Clip , Clop , don’t dare stop
Snap ! Crack.. and don’t ever look back ,

You should never look back
You can never look back
You will never look back

Hello, goodbye.

There are some times, and at times, someone
that makes you feel like you finally won
the chance at happiness
and the race is done

We are all aware that life is not fair
but one can hope we find somewhere
we can hold as home and
be safe from despair

But its not to be , between you and me
and as much as i hate to be cliché
its not because of you
but because of me

There’s no pain I know worse than no pain at all
when all is numb and you’re in free fall
to the bottom of your soul
with darkness , your wall

My shortcomings caused me to come up short
That wall I built was not enough to support
your attempt to climb
as a last resort

I hold in my head what I hold in my heart
as I over-analyze and replay the part
where I wear out my welcome
when I break us apart

I fear what I’ll feel when i feel what I fear
that crushing guilt of leaving you here
to explain to our friends
and all those who care

I await the weight of these words I say
Will it crush us ; will we still be ok
with all that’s gone on
when we lost our way ?

I told you I’d hold you close and near
to my heart and soul, for many a long year
and I am so sorry
I failed you, my dear.

Chasing The Sun

Though you truly know me not
so these feelings i have fought
but you became my brightest light
one smile from you, sets me aflight

It began with you
I swear, it’s true
and soon you will be told
when I feel I can be bold
and tell you

So now here I come
I feel I’m chasing the sun
My love of life has just begun
I’d like to share with you
some

Thoughts of you,  hottest at night
burns me in my dreams
singes at my seams
this lovers blight , this lovers flight
of fancy

but when you dream by day
your eyes see clearly
not drugged by the night
sanity hath touch my heart dearly
like you

If i could, id extend the day
to get you to stay
and fill my world
as endless hours with you
unfurled

My heart is in my throat
so this poem , for you I wrote
My breath you stole away
I long for just one day
with you

Tis true , it’s you , that I adore
and I will shout it evermore
For you are truly my brightest light
And I will no longer hold back, in fright

Slave to the womb

What did you feel when you saw those adoring eyes
looking back at you , expectant , dependent

and then the tearful cries

It must be a state of helplessness
when you should feel joy ,

but just feel distress

It must cut deep , when you expect

contentment , but feel resentment

A slave to the womb and society

Not your choice , not really

It was just a mistake , wasn’t meant to be

it could have went so differently

Who is in trouble now ,  Is it me
no it’s you – because of me

hard to hide that hostility

Thank you for my cold heart
it protects me from pain
Thank you for my independence

I’ll do it myself again

Thank you for your disappointment
it pushes me , makes me fight
Thank you for your frustration

its provided me special insight

Where were we then , a little wander
from the road –  pulled me harder

did you wish i went farther

Was never held , no time that i can see

not one picture , not one with me

The chasm was never expansed , the sides

they never touched , gap was much too wide

There was a time , i believe .. a turning

maybe , was just the last gasp of yearning

it must have been a brief twist of the mind
it wasn’t truly real

the struggle wasn’t mine

How do you think i felt , when i saw your sad eyes
looking back at me , hoping that i would fight

to protect you from his lies

Negative Thoughts

Negative thoughts , oh negative thoughts
they’re grinding me , blinding me
distorting my reality

Giving up ain’t always a conscious decision
and when the solution’s
more painful then the situation
-its easy to run
When the truth of yourself is known to no one

When getting up is a chore and filled with dread
Sweating your mouth dry and clutching the bed
Make it all disappear ,
Fake it all ’til your clear
exorcise all your demons
Before dealing with your fellow humans
How many masks must we wear
to get thru the day ?
Its why the lonely seek solitude
and run away

You know your low when your comfort zone
has shrunk to points unknown
When every day happenings fall outside its scope
When all that your feeling is some negative trope

When you got old without growing up ,
u chased the dream , but had to give up
And you don’t have the tools to make the transition
and you find yourself constantly wishing
you can go back without this depression
you’ve paid enough for this lesson

Negative thoughts , oh negative thougts
They’re grinding me , blinding me
Distorting my reality

A happy grunge song by Kevin Beary

Draft

When you think of me do u cry , do u try
to truly remember what it was like , when it was right ?
do u catch yourself when you recall what was wrong , its been so long and we’re gone and its gone
coz that what i do , when i’m thinking of you
and i dwell and i dwell and i relive my hell.
tripping over memories in my head , that i thought were dead, after all that’s been done and all that’s been said.

caught between wishing for what we had, and embracing where ive been lead and made my bed , well i’ve made my bed.
its been an interesting journey as i sweep up the ashes , and tend to the lashes and deal with my crashes.

well the scars of the heart are symbols of battles fought. the tougher that skin , the more battles u were in, and are about to begin
the lonely wind blows time past , what i thought would last, just could never last. Do you feel that blast ; That cold breath of life gone past ?

I scream whyyy !! when things don’t go my way , and today’s another day , i’ve got that same thing to say. And try as i might, i fight every night , to take that next step , to let in new light. But just when u think u r close , they pull away and leave u there to sway.

So much baggage is gathered , and it matters when it splatters all that is new. The chances are few, as time will chew on you ; And then my past , which is you, continues to screw with all i run into. Its not always them , sometimes its you.

When they talk with me , and they try, and they pry
to truly understand what makes me tick , what makes me pick , the things i say quick.
And though i sigh , i do try to let them inside, but then i hide and i hide and rarely confide.
There is a truth i can share , but i don’t dare. i protect it with such care, its not fair coz they cant compare.

These little slices – have made me weak

Steal away , run away with me
We don’t need to wait for the light
Quick , before we change our minds

We have this night , this moment in time
Lets make a memory
That won’t get stale in the retelling

My protections are imaginary
Cut me deep , make me mortal
Do it quickly ‘fore I lose my nerve

Save me now, for this moment
I am yours if you catch me right here
We can live our lives in these small moments

The sun is coming up
Rising too quickly – shearing the shadows
Where I bared my soul

I Miss Love

I miss love ….SO MUCH. Its heartbreaking to feel like you will never again have that feeling of being loved and loving back. I want love,  I want it so badly. And when i think of it , I think of you , and when i think of you in that way,  my heart drops and I’m crushed all over again.  Seems to be no span of time that allows me to miss it less and not feel its ache. Sometimes I feel like I can’t bear it but I still wake up every morning and start again ; to distract myself from the one thing i really want. Companionship and Love. I wish I didn’t have to experience such a harsh lesson – losing you – to come to this realization.

Love sets you free ?

I’ve been walking alone
for five long years
Always looking back
at my path of tears

They say it sets you free,
but not for me
Its hand on my neck-
pushed under the sea

Take just one taste
Just one bitter swallow
Thats’all it takes;
to the bottom I follow

One day I’ll wake up;
Its time to move on
Some day i’ll make up
the time that has gone

I am done with this journey to nowhere
To a new place of peace , I must go there
The world is filled with new  places to be
I am not stuck , if I aim to be free

Only Once did she Say Goodbye

I`ve Heard you cry but have never seen the tears
I`ve watched you Lie
You lie so sweetly behind a smile


When I look into your eyes
I can see that you love me
But its just not the same
Its more like being friendly
I wish I could change
The way you feel about me


Say tonight , you`ll be mine
But anger and despair , you throw at me
Its not meant for me
Give it to whom it belongs ..Please
I`m just a child, hoping for your hand
Come back to me , your heads in the clouds
You don`t see clearly- As for me
I`ll just be here


I thought that I knew you
You`ve told me your wants and fears
You`ve said that you love me
But afraid to let me close
You don`t want me to go ….or Stay
I still don`t know you
Or just don`t understand


Shes my girl, shes my love
She just doesn`t know
Her moods swing my heart
Beating Rapidly
Dreaming Wildly
Its my head in the clouds
Looking down at her, the beauty on solid ground

Untitled and Unspoken

——————————————————————————-
I hold you so lofty
they say I am crazy
To love only one girl
they say I am lazy

I just – don’t  ever
want to let go
I don’t think  – anyone
can really know
Who we were together , much less – apart
And how badly torn,  and broken – our hearts

I’d kiss you so softly
if I had just one moment
I’d love you so gently
if I had one moment more

Maybe – one day
someone will see
Who I am –deep down
The real me
And for you – I hope so , too
Someone – like I did , gets to know u

After all, that’s all we all want , when all is said and all is done
To be known , and know that no one truly knows us , but one
————————————————————————

My First Haiku’s

SPRING 

Ripples cross the pond
Lulls the lily – gentle bob
Crash upon the shore

Pale lilac petals
Break free and tumble and toss
Sweet scent in the air

A bloated cloud floats
Straining from its heavy load
Ozone breathes on me

The snap of a bough
A shrieking blue jay takes flight
The moon glows silent

Swift brush of an arm
Harried people rushing by
Trees sway in the breeze
