Love Poem

By Shaun Gibson, published on Jun 4, 2014

hold a touch to feel your breath every day

I awaken every day and you are my first thought

I need to feel you, hear you, your breath against me

I need you more than a lung needs air, I think it’s love

~~

Like Alpha needs the Omega, I need to know your warmth

Our sameness make us one, our differences make us two

When the night comes I need to feel your naked next to mine

Skin on Skin we intertwine as one soul, I think it’s love

~~

I am on a path to love you more, prepare for what’s in store

The love I hold comes from... (more)

Cosmic Lovers Wings

By Lumiere, published on Feb 13, 2014

Weeping willows haunt me upon edges of my dreams calling me back to our home vaporizing tears stream life is never what it seems return to visit a past Louisiana soul surreal as it seems fallen leaves crunch, beneath autumns feet Ghosts of our children laugh in the wind joyful heirs to be born, never have been

Dancing with the ghost of some old hearts illusion

Your angelic face reminds me of what is here and now, no more confusion l'itinérance de la terre en tirant sur mes ficelles de coeur combien je vous respirer en moi voulez que votre parfum sur mon visage la connexion que... (more)

Autumn Days

By Jack Bates, published on Feb 8, 2014

Brisk, crisp, crackly air drying Sweet smelling moldy leaves Brilliant color swept trees Raining fall down upon us all

Cutting wind out of the Northwest Flowing through their woolen coats To chill the bones of happy children Raging against Life's oppression

Armed with fervent laughter They bombard aging time With playful smiles, warm embraces And limitless, unconditional love

Naive of worldly worries And their slow fall from graces Eventually, all brilliant leaves fall Leaving forests of colorless trees

L'amour est un Verbe

By Lumiere, published on Feb 1, 2014

Hush now Darling, don't say a word obscurité se referme sur la lumière no more false intentions building castles on quicksands sinking dreams broken promises suspended shattered over years wall of sharp edges between us gliding miscommunication étoiles, charmes hébreu sont réels, others are false, intercepted archers messages striking slicing targets to create confusion seul l'amour peut voir la vérite twisted, stinging, evil intentions wounding us both where do the children of Venus seek shelter when nothing is hidden in digital context stories based on invisible pasts to the masses trembling... (more)

Goodbye

By Rahul, published on Jan 1, 2014

Goodbyes are always hard -

but this time I’m prepared.

Knew’d never get to say bye -

the way it is mend to be.

But this time I’m prepared -

to cherish each moment -

spent with you, for I knew -

it was time to say bye.

But this time I’m prepared -

to walk with you,

just like you once did,

guiding my tiny steps.

But this time I’m prepared -

to show how much I care.

And to thank you for -

all that I have become.

The Summer Rain

By Rahul, published on Nov 19, 2013

It began to rain at last,

after a long summer fast.

Wetting dirt, filling hearts

with each cooling drop.

The sun peeked through,

the dark painted smoke.

Painting a piece with -

its seven colour stock.

The valley brought to life,

as the river start to grow.

The wilted greens bellow,

danced in the rain’s mellow.

The elixir of life touched earth,

ending the latent summer and -

life rose out to the crust, to

a new beginning and to life.

Breaking Chains

By JennyT, published on Nov 10, 2013

Melded personality unrecognisable from the person that I was it seemed only moments when deciphering me wasn't possible chained, your shackles left no room for movement ~ for me to be myself without a smile I bid hello to mornings blew goodnight kisses to the moon with loss in my eyes

how did I let this happen as if I was invisible no thoughts, no rhyme or reason allowing my identity to vanish but I'm here, trapped, exploring ways to escape without a broken heart ungluing myself from your control my existence does not need your breath to smile once more at the moon and sun

The invisible person in my house poem

By Shaun Gibson, published on Nov 7, 2013

2nd proper poem ever here, go easy on me!

Uninvited, it comes and goes as it pleases

It comments to everyone in my house

We all have been changed by it in some way

But nobody invited it

It makes decisions none of us like, we hate it

We face it every day; we deal with it every day

It decides what we eat and where we go any day

But nobody invited it

It starts arguments and causes friction with us

It comes into our home and rules the manor

It laughs at us as we do what it tells us to do

But nobody invited... (more)

A Wish

By Rahul, published on Oct 12, 2013

Wish I could go back and

Let out all those words,

Once held back hoping

To set things right.

Wish I’d studied less and

Learnt more of life.

Ways to be content

With what I have and am.

Wish to just sit listening to,

The old wise sea singing.

Tales of those brave souls,

Who once walked her shores.

Wish to see just the good,

Even in the worst enemy.

Just as one tries to find

A light in the dark.

Nomadic nights

By JennyT, published on Sep 9, 2013

fingers splintering on bare wood the night, eyes closed ~ except through my third eye, the centre of my brows

early hours are silent, bar the tinkering ivories that draws me from unconscious sleep dreams will not be ReMembered when I wake yet still I wonder

violins draw close, like moths fluttering, movement; bow on strings music helps my flight, as I drift or am I deep in slumber now

wings circle overhead escaping from the birds hush morning do not come to soon I am in the woods, a far off place morning will enter, UNknowingly disturb

spin… SPin hallucinating?... (more)
