Jagged Levels

i may look cool
uninviting
icy, even cruel
there are steps to get to me

too many times
efforts of engagement
ended calamitously
for me and them

fear has changed me
my warmth is protected
in the depths of me
you’ll find that i’m real and engaging

In Love With A Fictional Character

Inspired by John Coyote – Damn Those Eyes and Amazing Song

While I enjoyed John’s interpretation, I sunk into the song a bit deeper addressing the singer’s frustrated state. It took me back to a personal experience in my past.

stay
the mind
those ideas
the strength shown
the man behind the eyes

life
frustration
anger, disappointments, and angst
chronic and acute
our reality is deception

leave
enough
it’s enough
life is more important
than those damn eyes

A fortune cookie tells us what needs to happen

Reblog – Letting Go… by Jason Muckley

Achieving freedom is a noble aspiration, wouldn’t you agree?

Poems for Warriors

Letting go…
-Letting go of control
-Letting go of “old” feelings
-Letting go of hurt and pain and loss
-Letting go of dreams for the future
-Letting go of the past
-Letting go of my old identity
-Letting go of “justice”
-Letting go of fear

My hands and heart are now free

Reblog – Dead couples

This piece speaks for itself…

Poetpaspoetry

walking side by side
like corpses that abide
abide by boredom
in ungraceful stride

awkward looks
routined ways
together trottin
like a pair of strays

their dying faces
at boring places
tell their story
of past gone glory

loneliness
galore
together
even a bigger bore

rejecting
true desire
afraid of sparks
igniting a fire

surprise surprise
it’s love’s demise

Reblog – Cry of a girl by Aaron Divi

Even in the aftermath of a broken relationship, as trying as it can be, there can be hope for a better future especially when we can lean on our support system.

Once………..
I Was Not Dependent On Anyone
I Was Alone
I Was Very Happy
No Cries
No Sorrows
No Worries
No Wounds In My Heart

One Day He Came Into My Life……….
He Gave Me Lots And Lots Of Happiness
He Made Me Laugh Even When I Don’t Want To
He Gave Me Support During My Failures
He Scolded Me For My Mistakes
He Helped Me Though He Know That I Can Do That By Myself
He Said That He Will Be There To Catch Me When I Fall

My Life Changed A Lot….
I Fallen For Him
I Became Dependent
I Really Forgot About Everything
Thought He Was My Everything
I Was In A Fantasy World

But…
Truth Hits Me Hardly
I Don’t Know
What Made Him To Like Me?
And Now
I Really Don’t Know
What Made Him To Hate Me?
I M Only Having Questions
I Am…

Reblog – Not Defined by Jason A. Muckley

Who hasn’t lived this scenario? I think as humans we are destined to experience heartaches, how we survive them determines our future.

Poems for Warriors

You are no longer my beloved
You are not my adversary
You still produce strong feelings
In me
I am still grappling with them
My mind and heart unsettled
The labyrinth
The solution remains hidden
What is it we are now?
No definition seems to exist

Reblog – A void now

I simply loved the raw truth of a woman’s strength in this piece. It reminds me of the current cultural motto “Nevertheless, we persist!” RAWR!! And the title – awesome! Great play on words. 🙂

Playing with words

and as she walked away, she
took it all with her

dignity
anger
hurt
love
