Admitting
Marcus Belcher Oct 2018
That raw
Simple, unspoken
I can see your thoughts
In your eyes
Fall into the essence
That lies beneath your skin
Merging with your spirit
Explode
Then lie still in your presence
Quietly enjoying your existence
Grateful for your creation
Kind of love

Yeah

I want that

But only if she is ok with me

So I asked....
Lust with truth and a purpose if you must. That's just my 2 cents

Vodka and Pineapple
Marcus Belcher Jan 2016
Pulling the charred earth inward
I reminisce about feeling
Sipping on the forgetful elixir
Trying recreate it in my mind

Am I in her bones?
Does she feel me across her skin?
Would she go blank when she catches my scent?
What is she thinking?

Questions with infinite answers
Endless angles
Countless meanings
A race with no finish line

A path I gladly walk
Why worry about the end
When I can live in love and forever
Wandering thoughts....

Don't Worry
Marcus Belcher Jan 2016
I've always been afraid to be ******
Never wanted to be a raging hormonal beast
Loving her parts but not her whole
Perverse thoughts staining my soul

But wanting her skin AND mind is fine
An appreciation that ages like wine
Thinking of your body while feeling your light
Wanting to make love then hold you tight

To please is to love
Learned that from above
Your comfort is a priority
*** is wanted but part of the minority

No scheme or plan
Coming before you a bare man
Offering the radiant tangible feelings in my hand
Fighting to stay when other ran

Drowning in the depth of her essence
Overcome by your totality
Unable to exist with you in reality
Hence why he's the latest fatality

But I'm here on demand
Trust me, I'm your biggest fan
Don't worry, it'll be alright
I'll be here when you greet the morning light
A very personal poem that explains my anxiety around women who are beautiful. Inside and out.

In the Void
Marcus Belcher Nov 2015
Boiling blood is just the start
Igniting the energy of the heart
The chi, it swirls to and fro
At the Master's command
Ready to flow
It builds, it builds!
Whispering gently to muscle and nerve
The mind removed to keep emotions at bay
Movements are swift
Precision and trust
Past and future
No place here
The moment the air is cut by no fear
Only the moment remains
The moment.....
When a samurai reveals his blade

Hey You
Marcus Belcher Nov 2016
You **** lady
I'm sweating
And feeling butterflies
Inside those thighs

The things that I feel
Ain't inside these guys
I seek to earn
They learn to buy

So in that moment
I can look you in the eye
Know what I know
Let these things by

I like writing about you
It comes so easy and natural
Like the grass that grows
The moon that shines
Or the happy thoughts
when your on my mind
It is effortless and enjoyable
Like enjoying the wind on my skin
The sun on my back
And you in my eyes
Someone once asked me why a lot of my poems revolve around female influence and love. This is part of the answer I s'pose

Marcus Belcher Jan 2016
Love those who accept blame
Along with the power
The greatest human beings

Thank you to those who sacrifice themselves to get equality for ALL human beings on the living rock we call Earth.. Know that someone out here loves you for it.

It is time.....
Marcus Belcher Jan 2016
I found it after she left
This feeling she awoken in me
A feeling I thought I severed through my own will
Primal in its nature
Fire re-ignited
To want contact again
Spinning in a vortex of sweat and sounds
A woman's essence apart of me
In a pleasurable connection
I want you
I desire your flesh
But only if your spirit comes with it
Being gentle is in my nature
But also a beast when my blood is excited
I want to drive you wild
But not insane
So tell me when to slow down and maintain
I must know your rhythm
Being in sync takes things to another level
Mind Body and Soul
I want it all
I've always been afraid of my own sexuality but she showed me in the time we knew each other that it's possible to be ****** without being as a mindless beast but also when to let go and just accept those primal instincts when your with someone you care about. I will be forever grateful to her....
Marcus Belcher Apr 2016
I just want you to know
I don't care if you don't love me
I don't care if you don't want me
But you must know
I want you
I want you to be apart of sunshine
I want you to be apart of my smile
But I accept if you don't feel the same
I know these actions are not in vain
But I hold them in my brain
Helping me grow against the strain
So ladies...hop on this magical train
I want to bring you joy changed from pain
To all my former girlfriends and my future wife

Wicked ones they are
Stealing, Taking, Relentless
Forged in the oven of the spirit

Wicked ones they are
Unrelenting, Unreasonable
Like the wind, they make their own path

Wicked ones they are
Ruthless, Wanted
Bringing pain and life

Wicked ones they are
But yet we need them
For they are created by us

To tell us
To guide us
To lead us
Just my take on the feelings we experience everyday

Overloading to one side
Destined to always shine

Neither gaining or losing

The Landscape
Marcus Belcher Jul 2016
Gripping the clouds
To fly upon their wings
Heaven's delight
Every time it sings

Tell me father
Tell me now
Show me the way
Show me how

To educate
To show them the light
Teach them when to bend
Advise them when to fight

We demand change
While staying the same
Want the power to fight?
Pick a different flame
A reflection of the times

I would like to say that
I'm writing this to you from a cloud
On which dreams lay
Ready to fall softly into your mind

But other times it's flicked
Like a pebble skipping across the image
Ripples that ruffle smooth feathers
Unsettled and unnerved

Rooting myself in the ground
Trying to live in the round
That circle
That sphere
That vision in which everything is clear
Just literally decided to write that just now. I love rrandom ideas lol.

The palms of my hands
Haven't forgot your touch
Your laughter still rings
Gentle echos in my mind

When I catch you looking
I look forward to
Creating those moments again

Marcus Belcher Nov 2015
Sweet words for her ear
Ring true and ring clear
I know they'll be fear
So please do come near

Respect I don't lack
Abundant in fact
It keeps us on track
No looking back

Her body I do crave
Its hard to behave
Lust's slave
A reason to shave

Many a question
Hope I'm the selection
When your not sure if it's lust and/or love

Acceptance
Marcus Belcher Mar 2016
Those who aren't scared of fear
Can protect everything dear
Hence the reason you hold them near
Call 'em dear or baby
The picture of a man
Or a photo of the perfect lady
It's you I choose
I accept the concequence of win or lose
Putting all my eggs in the basket
My nervousness
I wish I could mask it
Now I laugh at it
It's just proof
Of the truth of my words
So if your a little bit scared
It means you are prepared
To take that journey
To seek that fact
You stepped over the line
Of no turning back

India is where it was born
Or was it England?
Probably somewhere in between
When the stern wind blew it in

Pale isn't a proper color
I think more vibrantly

Seen vividly on my tongue

He grew on me
Now we are best friends

What They'll Say
Marcus Belcher Nov 2017
I wanna talk to people
How they make it?
Tell me what's real
I will take it
It takes more than
How you make it?

I can see patterns
Rhythms and tones
You pretty girl
Feeling the bone
In that zone
I am home

Talk to people
Pour em a beer
Next moment I see clear
No fear
Right here

I'm gonna make it
All good
Ain't gonna fake it
I'll suffer
Till make people make it

Just wanna be that boy
Please baby
I implore
Feel the rythm
Even the score
Payback
I'm ready for war

Pay the dues that are owed
I'm no toad sage
But I understand heart
I know rage
Gonna evolve
Flip the next page
You'll see me in the next phase
In the moment

Marcus Belcher Dec 2016
I've felt anger for too long
So I called cousel with the Ancients
Asked them for some help
They taught me the art of patience

Mixed with gravity
Rooted in reality
Changed my mentality
So I won't become another causality

So hear me now
Learn to love each soul so bold
Fill you with the fire
Keep away the inner cold

Threatens to steal your life
Admist all the strife
Please head this warning
Hope to see you in the morning.

I love ABC simple
Rhyming people
To think they
Could could be my equal

See the sequel

I don't wanna bust guns
But the flames I must
Turn you to
Ashes to ashes
Dust to dust

I don't rust

But I need a couple runs
Gotta get it right
In tune
With the light
Say goodnight

I don't fight

I wanna feel the love
But I missed that
Connection
Couldn't see above

Holy water in the basin
I feel so soaked
Killin it in the basement
Footprints in pavement
Something right after work and a beer

Her Mark
Marcus Belcher Jan 2016
She cracked me
Those piercing eyes
The ones I thought I only had
Turning their power upon me

             But you should thank her                                                             ­           
                                                                ­                 
Laying my flaws out
with the morning laundry
Practicing acupuncture
with my insecurities

But you should thank her                                                             ­           
                                                       ­              
For I truly asked for it
Breaking the wall with my hands
Giving myself to the painful typhoon
She called love
  
But you should thank her                                                             ­                                                                              ­                 

Without that hurt
I couldn't appreciate your soft zephyr
Resting in my wings
I appreciate this softness
After leaving the storm
She loves me but can't love me but she taught me how to open myself up to it. Whoever I marry will be forever grateful .

Late Night
Marcus Belcher Mar 2017
Peel back the layers
You will find
Based on truth
Or a piece of mind

Proclamations and demonstrations
Intensity to get it done
Concentration and activation
Do it while having fun

The piece that I lease
Will leave you done and gone
No blood is needed
This is done in song
I love prophetic stories of freedom

What I Have
Marcus Belcher Jan 2017
Taken for granted the raw planet
Is asking for change
All we need is a target
We're not asking for range

Though it might seem strange
To be one with the rock
But the next day
See me on the dock in the bay

Watching the cloud roll on in
Roll on in
Under cover of their presence
You might learn then

That

My words don't need to climb charts
I don't like those arts
Maybe I miss the feeling
I don't like those hearts

With you glitzy glitzy
And your shiny shine
All I need from mine
Is mouth and mind

So please pardon me
While I step away
Hold on to my soul and throw my rep away
Writing to a smooth Slum Village instrumental

His and Her
Marcus Belcher Nov 2015
Till you hear from both ends
Why? When? What? Who? How?
Others may offer a couple pennies

Simply stated is the best
Indirect is muddy
Dragging through unseen
Enveloped in chaos and swirls
So you may lose your way

Till you hear from both ends
Open mind required

A half isn't enough

Sometimes they fit perfectly
The sides
Other times
Ripping each to shreds
Yearning to be the final answer
A poem for my couples or anyone caught in the middle

Marcus Belcher Nov 2015
Me
I was a man with no dreams
Just like the new moon
Hidden
Those visions that give you wings
So that you may fly and soar amidst the giants
But my wings grew slow
As did my desire to fly
Growing restless in the valley I called home
My back is starting to itch and my feet won't be still
This one is a personal one. It's mostly about the growth I've made over the last few years

Just a thought
Marcus Belcher May 2016
It's 2:17 am
And I'm thinking about you
Slightly infused with the juice of the earth
Blessed by herbal essence
I wish to hear your words
Just so I can hear your sound
A melody of pleasure
Notes that paint a picture
Depth that the seas could not rival
Height only the heavens could overcome
You see
Just wanting your skin
Isn't enough for me
My desire for one is a conviction
A commitment to try
One day
One moment at a time
A poem from my upcoming eBook in the works.

A slave to the world
Putting hands to the girls
Now I'm thinking payback
Forget a Maybach
Unless you got money
It won't stop the lead
Your ego is the target
These ****** want you dead
With two to the head
From the smoking glock
I guess you didn't observe your time on the clock
You think it'll keep ticking
When it's been born to stop
That's why you need to be hip
But move is the hop
Embrace the 3 and let your form rock

What have you done...
Marcus Belcher Jan 2016
I want to be naked and against your skin
Never thought just being touched could do so much
A high no drug can create
Your touch is in my bones
That's why I hurt when you go away
But it's a beautiful pain
Reminding me that this is real
And it's to be appreciated
The moments I roam and caress your curves with my body
That gentle zephyr against my chest when you sleep
But the best thing of all?
Saying I love you and truly meaning it with every fiber of my being
Even if it hurts me
I want you to be the one who does it
A light to my darkness

Beyond
Marcus Belcher Feb 2016
A mellow air with cool vibes
Cicadas serenade the stars

Maybe paying homage to their brillance
The heaven's light
I think of balance when I look up at night
Darkness given purpose
Light a canvas on which to shine
One cannot exist alone
Joined at the cosmic and molecular hip
Twins from the same womb
Magnetic opposites

A mellow air with cool vibes
Cicadas serenade the stars

They have been there for us
Ever since the Great Fall
A reminder that we are not forgotten
Not forsaken
But reminded of where we come from
And what to shoot for
A heavenly aim we must have
It really is the best way
To see the forest for the trees
A beer, a table and 15 mintues of being lost in thought

Willing to battle

They speak the real
Baby your still gold

Those legends

I've seen Hell

So promise me

I need you here
Right by my side

Can we talk awhile?

I want to love my voice y'all
Learn to be me
I can see everything
Except how to be free

In my own skin
Around my own kin
This **** is crazy
One the factors why I don't have a baby

I wanna show them
Real love from the heart
The thing that stays together
When you fall apart

Hold on to it
But learn to let it go
When both can feel right
Then you'll know
One of my best in the moment writing ever to date

I Can't Do It
Marcus Belcher Sep 2016
I'm bubbling
Not enough vents
To release the pressure
I don't trust this world
False and Hidden are the ways
So I remain in the Tao
The Nothingness comforts me
No sight
No sound
No taste
No feeling
No smell
Looking through the prism
of all creation
From my bubble
Created from myself
Where has my desire gone?
Why am I not motivated to move beyond myself?
Why do I feel so detached....

Trying to face facts
I have ignored
For a long while
These are the thoughts
Of a man
With his own style
Refusing to be owned
By things this or that
Keeping me taught
Trying to cut some slack
To the feeling of where we at
But I'm a natural born star
I'm in the distance
Knowing I have to go far
After work play time
