Oh, my dear
please calm my fear
by staying near
as the demons jeer
and the ghosts leer
whisper in my ear
when the coast is clear
~much love

I thought your eyes I could dismiss,
And your smile I wouldn't miss,
But I still feel your lips
Giving me a permanent marker kiss

mercy party
it is a long way over here
but it is a longer way back
so i'm off to somewhere else
to the wrong side of the river
i'm not doing so well with things
sorry for the formalities
i was a long way off with you
what you're afraid to go back to
is what keeps you around i guess
it's just the incidentals of business

The night was made for romance.
In the night our two hearts dance.
Under the stars our lips touch.
In the garden your embrace means so much.

The night was made for love.
Our hearts cooing like a white dove.
Your eyes sparkling like diamonds so white.
I love you darling with all my might.

The night was made for caring and trust.
And darling, God made this night for us.

Appreciate,
The letters behind your eyes,
Which scribe each and every line,
That you lean on all the time.

Appreciate,
Whatever you've got left,
That's got you smiling,
If if it's got you living another day.

Appreciate,
Your every bite of food,
Which keeps you content,
Even if it's never enough.

Appreciate,
Your life is equivalent to mine and the rest of the human race,
Pretending the smile might be the way,
But I promise that you can live another day.

When you throw away a beautiful today
For an uncertain tomorrow,
Love gives up on you
And turns to your shadow.
Tomorrow will come with it’s empty promises
So will remain what’s left of the pain,
In the shape of what could have been.
#Tomorrow #Love

Your love is my life line
Without you I’d fall apart
Smashing into a million pieces
Like tomorrow won’t exist
I live for you
Breathing only with you
You are my happiness
Today tomorrow always
Like the promise we made
Standing at the alter
I will love you
Here now and forever
Through dark times
Black clouds
We fight it through
When we hit the bottom of a well
We have one place to go
Rising together hand in hand
You are my soul mate
Together we are complete
Apart we are like a puzzle
One missing piece
and we are incomplete

Awaken from inside your dreams
Only to dream while your awake
Wishing I could just see your face
As I close my eyes, to my surprise
Your standing there with tears in your eyes
Whispering to me “all is alright”
We’ll meet again and make memories
“On The Other Side”

Your words glide
Over my
Heart like a
Skater skates
On ice lakes.

Slowly you
Wear me down;
Carve your words
Onto my
Heart with blades.

One time you
Will cut through
And fall in
Through the crack
That you made.

You will try
To climb out,
But you are
Stuck in the
Void with me.

Now you'll know
Just the harm
That a few
Words can cause.
Can't you tell?

isn't it lovely
sitting here alone
isn't it lovely
listening to you yell
isn't it lovely
seeing you in pain
isn't it lovely
wasting my life away
isn't it lovely
crying every night
isn't it lovely
in this empty house that feels full
isn't it lovely
seeing happy faces around me
isn't it lovely
fakeing my joy
isn't it lovely
feeling my heart break
isn't it lovely
laughing through my pain

isn't it lovely
the questions that i ask you

Sa dinami daming posibleng dahilan
kung bakit kelangan nyong mag iwanan,
pagmamahal sa isat isa ang nagtulak
sa inyo sa kawalan

iniwan kita dahil mahal kita
iniwan mo ako dahil mahal mo ako

malabo mang isipin
na ang pusong di nagpapapigil magmahal
ang dahilan kung bakit naging malinaw ang lahat

anong tama sa maling nagawa?
anong mali sa tamang nagawa?

tumalikod, lumakad, tumigil,
lumingon, tumingin at hindi napigil.

lumapit, yumakap ng mahigpit,
bumitaw, lumayo sa isat isa
nagpupunas ng luha habang lumalakad
palapit sa kawalan
palayo sa pinakamamahal

the calm before the storm,
i'd still be glad and grateful,
because i had a day like this,

Because the earth’s round
Doesn’t mean it’s  having a ball.

Because waves crash
Doesn’t mean that they aren’t in control.

Because the sea is deep
Doesn’t mean that it’s thoughtful

Because land meets the sea
Doesn’t mean that they agree

Because you float my boat
Doesn’t make me the captain.
Five little ten worders to ponder.

All of us are
different,
which means there's no such thing as
normal,
which means there's no such thing as
weird,
which makes us all
normal.

But if all of us are
normal,
and there's no such thing as
normal,
theres no such thing as
us,

which means we don't exist!
Philosophy is a fun little toy!

We aren't,
after all,
objects
you fit into
the shape of your
wants and needs or
whatever kind of life
you lead us
and you turn me
like a marvel
like a caveman
discovering
this light
and then you switch

I am not the type
I am not the end of the game
I am not the comfort

You seek.

Paano ko ba ilalathala ang aking nadarama
Kung sa umpisa palang alam kong hindi na tama

Ipagpapatuloy pa ba ang pagsintang nais isiwalat
Gayong akin ng nababatid na ito'y walang kahihinatnan

Tama pa bang mahalin ka
Habang ikaw naman ay may minamahal ng iba
Death is not pretty.
Death is not brave,
Death is not freedom
Or grace
Or clarity
Or glorious.
Death is lonely,
Undignified,  
And vastly disappointing.
I do not recommend you try it.

The sun comes up each morning
Every time the same
Yet it is so beautiful

Waves roar almost on repeat
Only subtle are the differences
Though it easily draws me in

Clouds drift in the sky at such a slow pace
Having little care for shape or form
But can entertain humans for generations

Why am I so worried?

These words are for me,
For I'm the one who's hurting,
I'm just healing myself.
I often wonder why we can't understand other's poems sometimes, but deep down it is the one who writes it knows the value of it.

Sitting there
Embraced in all the noise
My heart was sinking

Again

Don't you know
Don't you know the power you have over me

A word can make me drown
A look can make me lost
A touch can leave me breathless

And I dare to chase you

Love me
naked beyond
flesh or bone,

trace your
fairytale dreams
to memory upon
my lips,

runaway your
passion and lust
across my eyes,

and never
let the sun
run to retire.

and deep inside
our eyes
we will define
our destiny,

and we you
will never
let each other go.

and as all
of your love
falls out
of time..

nothing will
be left
but you and I.

so let me
be your
more,

and never
be satisfied
with less.

to be young
to die old
inside  your
angel eyes

and sing.

Whether a comma, or colon:
Punctuation slows my rolling
I need no period. When I end
no Capitalization when I begin
Rulelessly I flow my art
  Not a single!
Explanation mark
Are you not the one
Who'll know?
Where a question mark
No longer goes

Warp the structure
Bend the lines
Put in repeat
Let emotion unwind
Make yourself
Your poetry's the best
Be your own ruler
Pass your own test

Take your own road
Where ever it leads
Lover or hater
It's all poetry!
Traveler Tim
Hay
No matter who you are
You have my deepest respect
I love you all!!

Who said explanation marks were merely laughing at your own joke?!

I write here because im lonely
And i have no one to talk to
About my feelings and staff

I write here because I don’t trust people
People can hurt you, can disappoint you
But in here
No one knows me and I don’t know you all
So there’s no room for disappointments.

I just want to lessen the baggage in my chest

Sometimes
You meet the right people
At the wrong times.


That thing could’ve worked
If it was a bit later,
Or maybe a bit sooner.

Maybe
We would’ve worked
If it was at a different time
In a different place.
With different people

Maybe
We could’ve lasted.

Maybe
You were the right person
At the wrong time.

I became an
electrician in order
to fix the light
inside your smile.
I became a driver
in order to
take you to exotic
and beautiful places.
I became a physician
in order to be
a balm of Gilead
to heal your
deepest wounds.
I became a chef
in order to take
care of your well-being.  
As an alchemist
i will transform
all the past hurts,
shame and mistakes
into gold.
I became a gardener,
so i can plant
beautiful flowers to
bring succor and
comfort to sooth
your soul.
I became a priest
in order to
draw out your
inner spiritual essence.  
I became a king
so you can
become an asset
to rule in my castle.
I became all things
in order to
win your heart.
I am so in love
with your essence.
