Did he know?

That the stories he'd create
That the characters which he'd sow
Together all at once
Would so quickly grow in the minds of those
Who would follow and fellowship together
Along this ever on and onward winding road?

For wherever there is rock and stone
Or root and earth
Be it on mountain tops or in the valleys below
How his stories over and over again
Will ever accumulate and flow
Through the minds of many so and so's

Did he ever realize the significance of this though?

That I do not know. BUT I kinda started TFOTR just a moment ago. :p

Race you to the Havens.

I promise
I won't ever break your heart again
Take advantage of your devotion
Razors up through my throat
the verses I sweetly lie through
secret smiles, my seething teeth vibrate
The weight of words in pixel and ink
May keep the cold truth freezing
The virulence hiding behind
what once were naive eyes
fed and sleeping in chains

One sweet word,
Is all I have left
If it's even that

I looked ahead
and stepped into
the seductive unknown
heart blind
eyes wide open

I looked ahead
into "what can be"
and gave "what" its curiosity
"can" its strength
and "be" its confidence

I looked ahead
and took a deep breath
with fear in one hand
and courage in the other

I looked ahead
but when I wanted
to take a step further
I felt a tug
on the strings
of my heart

Love is like a street,
It goes both ways.
Unless it's like our love...
Then it's called one way

And in the end, it was only I who fell in love.

Lying on the car
as the insects are biting
There are only stars.

#haiku   #alone   #stars   #night   #one   #universe   #mountains   #car  

Too surprised to find
aglow,
pictures of you fallen
long faded and broke
I believe the fractured memories
hide better tastes underneath
abuse, and neglect
Forget
for one moment,
the two lives split open,
the two eating entrails,
stitched eyes, pretending
they were not human beings
Now my tongue pretends that
the juices have turned bitter,
when I long for love
I'd drink you all day,
suppressing hate that
imperfect ink fade
has left a burning stain.

It's nearing its approach again.
#hate   #abuse   #summer   #one   #for   #memory   #feed   #entrails  

It does not span too long
Just a night or two or so
But it swallowed us whole, I see it clear

It lasts only so long as a night
Catch it while you can
But don’t cry when it’s over
It was meant to be like this
You have to learn to let go…

It’s ephemeral love
Springs and withers so quickly
Fades away as it burns and stings but just tonight
Don’t be sad, because he really loved you
Even though just once in his life…

This sip of life I never had
I’m drinking it up
Beds and love, love, love
that will die soon…

Hot feeling, heavy breathing
but not only that
It was when you held my hand
It was so much stuff
It shone, so bright, that only night.

It’s ephemeral love
The universe knows it
And you’ve been waiting ever for this
The stars conspire above
You gotta learn to let go…

And it could be anything
You could have been playing with me
but I don’t think so… I know

No one ...
only you  ...

if all women's fell ...
in front of my eyes ...
as the the rain ...
if they all runs ...
as the rivers ..
in front of me ...
will never any of them ...
to get my attention ...
no one will get to seduce me ...
no one will fill in my eyes ...
no one will get up with my heart ...
even if they were the greatest poets ...
because you are the poem...
which i write always ...
and live within all my life ..
through all my dreams ...
and keep hoping ...
with every day ...
day by night ...
just to get you ...
here with me ..
into my world ...
to be the poem to my life ...
and the great lady ...
whom fill up all my heart ...
and fill in my eyes ...
while no one could do ...
only you ...
you whom i loved ...
from so long years ..
and keep on this love ..
and will do ...
only for you ...

so please all ladies ...
women's world ...
i have no heart for you ...
i just get a one heart ...
and it's only for her ...
only her ...
and no one has a place ...
into my heart ...
only she ...
whom i adored ...
and still do ...

temptation is everywhere

in movies
in photographs
in life

when you think you've found the one
theres always something else that catches your eye

you don't want to fall into their ploy
but somehow you always do

I feel like everyone falls for something or someone else when they have the thing they already want.
