Please sir, the snake said
you don't have to be scared.
I am antidote.
Dereaux Nov 2020
Our antihero,
has now won something.
A real consolation prize.

You know you are a bad poet,
when the comments are more
impressive as the poem itself.
Dereaux Aug 2020
I had even
met you

were already
in my mind.
Dereaux Jan 2017
Wonderful times
I had with you
behind closed eyes.

It felt so real,
but when I awoke
they all were lies.

I can see nothing
even your light has left me.
I am a black hole

Dry colored leaves fall
making earth a warm blanket.
Nature takes a rest

sweet blossoms of plum
on moonbeams you float thru air
drifting in my dreams
Dereaux Dec 2020
Love runs
like a
bounded thread

complicated in-sync
with sweet dreams

we stay
woven together

never ever
we unravel
Dereaux Aug 2020
I don't know
what it is all about
but someone is
sitting on my cloud.

I try to scare him
so he goes away
but nothing helps
he's gonna stay

Looking in magic books
for some kind of spell
to put on him and
send him straight to hell
Dereaux Sep 2020
If you both cannot
agree on certain issues.
That is common ground.

Much reading
in my prison cell
kept me fascinated there.

Problem was however
that what is offered
was a mere crime
Dereaux Sep 2020
Morning dusk looms
and hunts furiously
across the whole earth
chasing the dark.

In conflict together
for the upcoming light.
Night is soon
succumbed to dawn.

But already makes
dark plans again,
to banish the light
once more
before nightfall

Sometimes, I see them walking
here in the square,
chained to their digital world
scared to be in real life I guess.
Or they just don't care

Years ago, it was different,
a ball rolled here every day.
There was that rotten boy
who always won my marbles,
times just rolled away

But at least I had
something precious to lose
and did not sit all day
staring at a small screen.
We also had less to choose.

I only went back home
for half an hour just to see
The mysteries of ******-doo
or those **** Duke boys
that were on black and white TV.

Yes, this square used to be fun
liveliness, cohesion and
laughter wide spread.
nowadays it seems more like
an episode of the Walking dead.

tears fall
you caused pain
heart broken in two
Dereaux Aug 2016
It’s easy to write about
all the pain in life.

but writing about life
can cause you pain.
Dereaux Sep 2020
I remember
something vague
from a distant past
which I can't place yet
here in the present.

A story in my head
filled with fun
and intense happiness
not a scratch on my crystal ball
everything healthy,
nothing broken.

An era has passed
a love perished
the piece has been written
but I don't like the ending.
Dereaux Jul 22
An erratic cold sigh
swoons through the valley
last winter hollow kiss
portends a grim frenzy

Clogged icy pine needles
under snowy blanket
lying on the forest path
love with spring has chilled

Waiting to melt
after a dewy dawn
winter reigns once again
before letting the sun in
When winter needs to leave. :)

My mother-in-law,
said I must read fairy tales.
Fly on! you **** witch.

How to write down a dream
when everything
was an illusion

How to make the story straight
when it has left
me in confusion

How to fill the blank paper
when my mind
had no idea

That this fata morgana
was something
I could not see

The beauty and pleasure
turned out to be
a total fake

From the moment
that I was
completely awake

So for the future
I have to ask you
please be kind

And live those
petty dreams of you
in your own mind
Dereaux Nov 2020
It was last night
that the white monster
sneaked unseen
across the quiet country.

Silently hovering
above the fields
swallowing all
what came on it's path

Over the vast fields
I noticed that he silently
but surely did his job
covering all in mist

Only the tallest trees
were lucky enough
to tower above his
growing power.

Early morning sun
already warming up
trying to contain evil

Through the shreds
she evaporated the mist
with pale golden rays

The idyllic picture
brought melancholy
to my heart.

If only everything
was so easy too
Dereaux Aug 2016
We have had this friendship together
and made love every single day
every single day

With champagne and dressed up in leather
we went all the way
really all the way

But when our love got really, really hot
you kind of left me cold
you left me cold

You said, you needed someone younger
apparently I became too old
I became too old

Now I’m here watching the days go by
sitting here all alone
sitting all alone

Our friendship has sailed out on the ocean
and it sank like a stone
like a stone
Dereaux Aug 2020
I wrote
a sensual poem
naughty and corny.
Praying that
when she read it
it would make
my wife *****

She read
and she read
she read a bit more
I'd hoped when she was done
to take her right on the floor

I looked at her
and asked
so what do you say?
Did my passionate writing
soak your ******* away.

She gave a short moan
and I thought I had luck
But she quickly
answered to me
I don't give a ****.
please correct my English when it's written the wrong way.

A beautiful forest nymph
tried to put a spell on me
her shiny eyes trying to lure
I quickly hide behind a tree

What treacherous sorcery
I have to overcome
before I turn into a toad
a spell that can't be undone

Her magic mystical powers
firing beams upon my soul
trying to blind the inner of me
and capturing me as a ghoul
Dereaux Oct 20
give me your words
I will read

give me your voice
I will listen

give me your sight
I will look for you

give me your heart
I'll keep it warm

give me your love
you will understand
Dereaux Nov 2020
You gave the words
I used my ink.

I wrote the lines
that made you think.

You became speechles
I waited for reply.

You ended the story
but there was no goodbye.
Dereaux Mar 2017
She caught me harmless
while my defenses were down
she likes to make me happy
and steal away my frown

Trying to open up my heart
so she can take a look inside
asking me to share my emotions
when there is no place left to hide

She makes me take of my mask
just to reveal my true identity
but it just makes me feel awkward
for me there seems to be no serenity

Once again I listen to my own thoughts
as usual they don't make any sense
instead of cleaning out my closet
I'm actually creating another fence

The bright light of life
in my dark
and lonely heart

If your life
is getting
too heavy
for you.

Find someone
who cares
and willing
to carry it too.
Dereaux Aug 14
If all I see around me
was not based on truth
would I finally calm down
and my soul be soothed

If a bright light would shine
on all that is dull and gray
would all the turmoil in the world
suddenly go away

If all that I desire
would feel the same for me
could the fear and evil in my heart
finally let me be
Dereaux Oct 2016
When your ink runs out
before the story is done.

You have your imagination
to rely upon.
Dereaux Aug 4
Looking for your love
I am hiding under
shades of blue

With a scarred heart
that keeps on beating
and memorizing you

My true thoughts
are hidden behind
a cloaked smile

To give myself
a bit of peace
I must live in denial
Dereaux Sep 3
foggy dreams
warm up my thoughts
and try to
disguise images
of the slumber

calmness is painting
a picture of softness
in the morning
while a muffled yawn
breaks the silence
Dereaux Nov 2020
Phrases hang in the sky
words grow on a tree
ideas float on water
it's all ordinary to me

Grass is the parchment
on which I write stories
my thoughts a jar of ink
I use to describe the glories

The world is my sketchbook
full of imaginary tales
which I still have to write
unhidden by any veils

The pen is my greatest love
which I play by hand
my stories, I bind them together
in the boundless poets land
Dereaux Nov 2020
Please, bring me relief
I don't want to see the dark.
Dereaux Apr 7
She was looking
wherever true love
for her might be.

To tell you the truth
I was actually hoping
she was looking for me

She did not have
to search further
surely not that far.

Sadly she just
walked by me,
leaving my heart
with a scar
Dereaux Nov 2020
Lost my ball
went to get it back
boys chained to the floor
the game was dead

Along came a duke
and took me home
Lost my marbles there
and rolled all alone

Now I sit in a square
but no TV there
I walk to the window
to look at the world

and saw madness walking by
Dereaux Mar 2017
Darling, if you believe
in love at first sight

Then please, don't look
at me twice.
Dereaux Aug 2016
You are like a bird
silently flying away
Love is in the air
Dereaux Sep 2020
Ticking time
sliding by
painfully slow

The future
in front of me
lies miles
behind me.

The present
no longer favorable
for me

I feel
a timeless remorse
now I may
have loved you too little
Dereaux Oct 2020
Your love,
has many dreams
in which I am not included
dancing anxiously
on still water
afraid that I will disturb it.

My love,
bright and sincere
clear as an open book
you don't want to read it
but left it
in a dusty corner.

Our love.
speaks several languages
but not one you understand
how for God's sake
do I make clear
that I love you very much.

In the peaceful magical world
where I would be living

No one would dream of a better world
as the one we've been given.

Money is no problem,.
we don't have it anyway.
Our life is our wealth.
Dereaux Nov 2020
Peering across fields
looking to the horizon
creating images in my head
before the day even started

Snakes hide quickly
under the grass
exaggerating fens
feel like a big puddle

Storks nest together
on top of high poles
fox and marten watch
you can hear them sneak

Rabbit happily hops
from one hole to another
sheep looks on woolly
how do they keep it up

Frogs make paths
in the drifting sand
handy for the ants
marching across
the sandy path

Highlander grazes hairy
grass for grasshopper away
Woodpecker breaks bark
Cuckoo goes insane

A deer shoots away
is looking for a safe pasture
There is space enough
for a whole pack
all come along
Dereaux Oct 2020
O my desk,
a daily friend you are
leaning back I can trust you
stuck by my side all these years.

legs firmly pressed into carpet,
sleek gray blade, leveled,
every poem is written here
made with your support

The passing of the years,
will not escape you.
I will never forget you
even if I have to replace you.
Dereaux Oct 21
a natural painting is what i see
of flowers and fresh grass nearby
a cloudy blue sky so breathtaking
it always leaves me with a sigh

no artist can paint so well and true
like mother nature does it right here
trees even give way to her sculpture game
and let precious splendor come near

painted with love, so velvety soft
just like fragile life mostly can be
look and appreciate what nature offers you
as she whispers “please come closer to me“
Dereaux Sep 2020
A book with a good plot,
is on the table in front of me.
It won't open.
Dereaux Nov 2020
In the peace
and solitude of the room
I want to write one last poem
the candle searches diligently for fuel
soon I see the last glimpse of it's light

Just one more glass then
one last drink on this day
which slowly slides to her end
and morning light
may greet us tomorrow

The candle extinguishes
I am alone
and in the light of the moon
it is dark and quiet on the street
the poem is written
and it's time
to go to bed.
Dereaux Aug 2016
When one word
can say it all,
why write all that
gibberish along
with it.
