I’m still running on
Yesterday’s priorities;
Seeking prizes that,
If I only I took the time
To think things through,
Revaluate my situation Properly,
Don’t really matter to me anymore.

I’m still caught up in the
Want of yesterday,
Driven by desires
Well past their sell by Date.

The insignificance of Bygone yearnings
Haunt my todays
Until I exorcize them
Into faded memory,
File them away
Marked ‘Insignificant’,
‘No longer useful’.

If I had a quarter for every time I wished
For you and I to take a trip to yesterday
I don't know exactly how rich I would be
But it would add up to a lot of change

I don't know what I'd do with that cash
But I would spend every cent on you
Doing whatever you like till it's gone
Or till there's nothing left to do

Or we could leave where we are for good
Pack up all our things today and leave
I could take your hand and whisk you far from here
To a place our tomorrows will always be happy

I will say farewell to bad memories
Never look that direction again
Like arrows we will fly toward the future
Our time in this small town will end

Presently I have your heart to hold
And although time may never give me a replay
I am too lucky to be nostalgic
Done wishing for yesterdays
Day 6: write a poem of any length incorporating every word from your latest Facebook status update

"If you don't change what you are doing today all your tomorrows will look like your yesterdays"

The days were dark and grey,
My mind deep in thoughts of sorrows and pain lay,
You promised you won't leave me at all,
But once again,you were not there at the time of my fall.

I laughed the most with you,
I cried the most with you,
I wish before trusting you I knew,
Cheaters like you are  not very few.

You took away everything I had with me,
My smile,my happiness and my glee,
We almost ended up as unknown peeps,
No more mattering our griefs.

The wind blew,
I no more know you,
I shall leave to find the real me,
To bring back my faded identity.

Love yourself.
the mule rushed me
it was an bull fight
all the mexicans were running
the wall was an high trump card
he's theory were madness

what have you with me
the boy cried
of the wind

chimes began to blow from the northern corners
sky will light for terrors eyes
seas to be mistaken for time
what heat and destruction shall await
is it i with an wand of middle
speak to me through webbed deviate
what is this child you have more into me
that my womb be paroled
what season of winter have we been caught in
ride on me through this grief
ride on me through this rain
pad me the cloud we set you on
for in order to pass me
it can not be done
one side

no notes today

Do you realize you haunt me?

You haunt me when I shower,
Because I can't seem to scrub off the grime you left.
You haunt me when I listen to music,
Because you played music the whole time.
You haunt me with each step I take,
Because you once told me you loved watching me walk.

Do you realize you haunt me?

You haunt me when I smile,
Because you said my smile is what drew you towards me.
You haunt me when I love,
Because you told me you "owned" me now.
You haunt me when I breathe,
Because you told me I'd never forget you as long as I was breathing.

Do you realize you haunt me?

You haunt me when I pass a white house,
Because that's the color of the house we were in.
You haunt me when I see a green door,
Because that's the door color of the room I was locked in.
You haunt me when I try to be passionate with someone,
Because you wouldn't take no for answer.

"once upon a times"

so many memories

wistful treasures
like tumbleweeds
blown .... by....

slipping through your fingers

gone by

like dust
in the wind....
