An End and a Beginning

By Frank - icare2be, published on Jan 11, 2011

The days of 2010 have been put behind us,The year filled to overflowing with memories.

Good, bad and even some mediocre,Days sometimes filled with stress and anxiety.

Jobs lost for many mamas and papas,Even single gents and ladies weren't immune.

Mortgage payments late and late again,Eviction notices served, homes lost.

Homeless shelters filled to overflowing,Food pantries emptying faster and faster.

Young men and women leaving families,Soldiers fighting in far off lands.

Unknowns strapping on bombs, Or sending bombs to terrorize all.

Yet hope... (more)

Rise

By Deborah Horton, published on Dec 31, 2010

Get knocked down things not going well

feeling as if you’re spending time in hell

nothing goes right all lows and no highs

and still you have the strength to rise

Feeling hopeless lost and afraid

the best of plans get waylaid

no words to speak only sighs

and still you have the strength to rise

Heartbroken dreams cast aside

looking for a place in which to hide

failing failing so many tries

and still you have the strength to rise

Sun breaks through the clouds now gone

a new path unto your feet is shown

I Want I'M TIRED to Die!

By BusinessLife, published on Nov 17, 2010

I am tired of wishing my life away and tired of all of the tears. I'm sick of wondering why things are and wanting someone to make things better. Why do I have to succumb to such daggers of anguish that tear at my soul and leave me without any possibility of experiencing a moment of peace of love or anything of substance that might seem to supply food to my soul?

It never ends. I get just so far and then - STOP! I am knocked down and pummeled by society's neglect of its own, leaving those without protection to wither and die inside.

It's sick isn't it? How is such complacency... (more)

The Scent of You

By BusinessLife, published on Nov 17, 2010

I think of you as I take a breath.I want your eyes on me no less.

I can't stop wondering how time progressed,Without your touch upon my breast.

I need the sense of you near me.I need the scent of you on me.

I want to feel your warm, soft skin.It's your strong arms I ache to be in.I know the moments seem long apartWhen you and I share heart to heartThe laugh of life an love of spiritI know you understand and hear it.Because as I breathe in and I exhale,I realize to no avail,That my love, my life, my soul, my heartIs yours alone to set apartI choose to give my love in fullAs... (more)

I Knock but the Door Opens Not

By Frank - icare2be, published on Oct 25, 2010

I Knock but the Door Opens Not.How does one cross over to the other side?What is the secret of releasing oneself from this mortal being?I see my dieing Mother wanting so desparately to cross over.

Mother has journeyed long.Illness has struck her low And brought her close to the door.There is no turning around.The journeys end is nigh.

Waiting for release so intense. The suffering so great. "Please help me! I want to die."My heart breaks as Mom's has.How can I answer this question?

The answer has been."I do not know, but let me hold your handand wait with you."

Let... (more)

From Sun To Moon

By BusinessLife, published on Oct 19, 2010

Her buttercup fingertips made lazy circles in the sand.She dreamed of her memories once shared with her man.How long had it been since she felt his caress?He had shown her the light that was sparkling, no less.He had captured her heart and made a crystal clear day.What more could she want? What more could she say?The day now turned dusk and left her alone.She felt a cool breeze that made a chill known.Her heart skipped a beat or was it a few?Her man was now here, the crystal day too.

San Fransisco:

I was in the studio

cutting tracks with another

producer ?who's been dreamin’

about himself being the one

to take poetry out of the

Underground once and for all.

He was sure I was the one.

“The Poetess” haha he gave me

a hip hop name that fit the bill

perfectly for his vision.

It’s weird being the only one in a room with an LA mind. ?People talk, I always think they’re joking. I gotta get outta... (more)

Lord Byron, the predecessor of rock stars

By Yvonne de la Vega, published on Oct 16, 2010

...is widely known to be the rogue Lord poet and lover of all time. Author of Don Juan, his persona is one of a such eccentricities in manner, and his intellect - so innovative in thought, and therefore influental for one and a half centuries. He was the first rock star from the underground poetry scene.

"Byron's notability rests not only on his writings but also on his life, which featured aristocratic excesses, huge debts, numerous love affairs, and self-imposed exile. He was famously described by Lady Caroline Lamb as "mad, bad and dangerous to know".[1] Byron served as a... (more)

Passionate Poet

By baynurse, published on Oct 12, 2010

"The Passionate Poet"

Oh passionate poet, how do you do it?

How can you have so much passion, by the way, what is your passion?

My passion is everything I desire, everything I long for…

Everything I set my eyes on with love and is beyond my reach.

You see, if I had it all, I would have no desire, all I would want I would have

so I would hopefully be delighting in it.

The passion I write is about what I haven’t delighted in, or haven’t delighted in enough.

God’s gift to me, then God’s torture, which is also a gift, when seen from a poetic... (more)

Nirvana

By dy_eve, published on Oct 6, 2010

What if the whole moment would be true?

What if he is the strong voice that breaks her minds perimeter?

What if she doesn't want to keep yes and no chained, because she has a clean and pure conscience?

What if she had forgotten her complete form till the suburbs,at least for a moment?

What if he wud be there , to drag everything out of her , to outline her better?

What if she would remain disconnected of mind , leaving it permanently as a past witness.

What if he has sneaked like a hearth-thief , because she can't harm her?

What if she would... (more)
