Apoetisonly
I’m still here
I feel you lingering around
but you’re never near
So close but so far
Will we ever make that wish upon our star?

I’d say I love you so much it hurts
But that’s a lie
Cause the pain only lies in the truth
You’re the only one that makes me feel good

Sometimes I like life
Sometimes I hate life
Sometimes I love people
Sometimes I hate people
Sometimes I live
Sometimes I don't
Life is full of Somtimes
But only sometimes

Hidden in fabrics
                                                                            Concealed beneath a mask
Taking shelter in music
                                                                                 Letting the lyrics soothe
Calm the frenzy of thoughts
                                                                                   Ease the internal storm

we played hide and seek by the rivers
and sometimes i would chase you

but never would you chase me
and when i asked why
you smiled because

love to you
was just a game

Her eyes are poetry and a blink of her eyes is a poem.

Her voice is poetry and each of her words is a poem.

Her thinking is poetry and each of her thoughts is a poem.

My love for her is poetry and each of my expressions for her is a poem.

My care for her is poetry and each of my suggestions for her is a poem.

My desire for her is poetry and each expression of my romance for her is a poem.

Our mutual attraction is poetry and each of our confessions to one another is a poem.

Our eternal relationship is poetry and each of our manifestations for one another is a poem.

Our way of talking to each other is poetry and each of our conversations with one another is a poem.
Redefining my poetry and poem.

Tomorrow held such promises
then the next day came
and broke all of them.

Ton arrière-train
Surgit du fond des abysses
Comme un aerolite,
Un diamant
De 3106 carats,
Une pierre d'exception,
Un Cullinan
Que je scinde en neuf
Pour chaque incarnation de ma muse
Qui éclate en mille facettes
Quand je lapide sa majesté.

Even in the most turbulent moments
You are there
A solid foundation
Ever present
Ever strong
And I am
Ever grateful

Where can I go
Where can I hide
The fear is at my door
There is a crack of darkness
It desires to envelop me
Falling to my knees
I cry out my pain
I see a rushing wind of light
hides me in sight
Dear God its You
Take me Lord
Keep me Jesus
Hold me dear,heart and soul
For You alone are my hiding place

When an orange is squeezed
Only orange juice drips out;
When a cup of coffee is pushed..
Only coffee spills out;
It's only what's inside of us
That comes out!

If you go through a raging storm,
Have your life colored with sorrow
And taste the wine of pain,
It is all good!

If you go through a bad experience,
Have your heart broken to pieces,
And your rosy dreams shattered,
It is all good!

If you go through a venture of failure,
Suffer through a dreadful  hardship,
And struggle to make ends meet,
It is all good!

After all “What doesn't break you makes you stronger”
Your sorrow, tears, and pain will shape
your personality and make it shine
with beauty, humanity and love!

I miss you
I love you
I’m drunk
and I can’t think straight

My world is falling apart
Because I can’t stay sober without you
truckin is my freedom it sets my spirit free
makes me feel alive wakes the soul in me
rolling here and there to every different town
from early morning light till the sun goes down.

travel every place each and every road
each and every state delivering my load
with the moon above lighting up the night
stars are all around as they shine so bright

with the sense of freedom that makes me feel so free
the quiet of the night as peaceful as can be
driving through the wind and the rain and snow
big wheels rollin round as fast as they can go

travellin  every place working for my pay
each and every state miles and miles away
pulling into truck stops give my self a treat
have myself a rest grab a bite to eat

head on once again travel every road
each and every place delivering my load
driving every state across the usa
driving anywhere working for my pay

rolling here and there to every different town
from early morning light till the sun goes down
with the sense of freedom there inside of me
wakes my soul inside sets my spirit free

It's kinda cool how when life is normal
rainy days make me lethargic and unmotivated.
But when life is hard and I'm struggling
rainy days are the greatest comfort,
as if the earth is crying with me
saying that I'm allowed to feel it all

If this be fate
upon reflection,
I now see love's
sweet imperfection.

Perhaps t'was lost
in jest or play,
three magical words
I once heard you say?

But lips sweet kiss
was not a lie,
nor souls commingled
whispered sigh.

Nor hearts that leaped
in breathless splendor
or feelings felt
both warm and tender.

Perhaps t'was fate
that clutched the heart
our spirits twined
now torn apart?

Yet words so harsh
were said in haste
spilled from lips
I yearn to taste.

Can broken hearts
with love still mend
and foolish pride
unbraid and bend?

Then love is mightier
than the sword,
and lover's may live
in sweet accord.

An endless love
that's ours to keep
in golden sun
and night's deep sleep.

A world that's ours
and ours alone
embraced within
our hearts and home.

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!

Let us rest
For the day is over
Night has come
Still moon and stars

Lay with me
Let out a sigh
Breathe in anew
And close your eyes

All our worries
Will be there tomorrow
Some may even
Fade away

So let us rest
The day is over
Let us lay
In each others arms

Google maps says
it will take me

Just enough time

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.

If you could read my mind,
You’d see a thousand papers
Filled with broken poetries
And deadbeat proses
Full of woeful verses
With mournful pieces
Of unfinished stories
That are yet to be written
And failed to be spoken;
If you could read my mind,
You’d hear horrible screams
And earsplitting weeps
From shattered dreams,
Kept in a nasty notepad,
Scribbled on a bed
Of bloodstained words,
Ringing in my head.
If you could read my mind,
You’d see the shadows
That lurk within me;
You’d hear the bellows,
Screeching the words
“I’m tired,”
“I’m a failure,”
“I’m stupid –”
I know it sounds stupid,
It’s pathetically foolish
And seems too *******.
If you could read my mind,
You’d feel the tears
I had ever failed to cry;
You’d see the people
That make the weak weaker;
You’d see the monsters
That consume my head;
You’d hear the hollers
That failed to be freed;
You’d see the heart
That still bleeds and bleeds.
If you could read my mind,
You’d see the face
I’ve failed to show back then,
The face I’ve faked back then.
If you could read my mind,
You’d see a character
I had ever failed to become
If you could read my mind,
You’d be able to read
A book you never wished
To touch and read,
But sometimes I still wish
Someone could read my mind.

Painting a black 
rainbow underneath 
a falling sky, it's mist 
consumes and eradicates 
your last breath, your 
last hope. 

They pour the drink 
you are forced to drink, 
and feed the flesh you 
are forced to eat. 

Taught to be stupid, and 
raised to be nothing, 
what's left to do, except 
make a noise so loud, fame 
will hear you. 

Your dreams will tell you what to do.

Every dawn starts
With lighter flicks
Every puff is a burnin’ crackle
The blonde Pall Mall kisses
Burn my lips
Bitter
Yet so pleasingly sweet
And enjoying every melody
Of every puff
Settling haze on your street
With no shame
