Temper

Tempered through time accidentally find


Extended past any individual mind


Discovery of tools laugh and cry at the fool


Labyrinth of noise delivered the schools


Fear learned belief forestalling relief


Dwelling abyss marries the grief


Anger loves pain bedmates dark rain


Grindstone submerged tests once again


Surface a glimpse memorial fear and wince


Unable to free others burning convince


In darkness reign reflected in pane


Blinded by I with nothing to gain


Ruling my hell blacken kingdom dwell


Afraid of the fear reflections to sell


Melancholy dispose the savior exposed


Suspended belief simple scented black rose


Yet scent and vision hint of division


Amiss, new knowledge of inquisition


Searching sought answer self made necromancer


Attended royal ball and saw not one dancer


Sight cannot see a forest for trees


Worst of them all forging agree

SIRUS

I Burn.

Searing, blue white, freezing hot.
For eternity's I have illuminated these alien skys.
There were children here once, before they fled from this ultraviolet dagger.

My blazing frozen light, blue as ice, is chilled by the years of journey through the naked void,
the Timeless,
Ancient,
Eternal darkness.

I consume myself with narscisistic passion,
tongues born of flame, caressing and enveloping,
these unquenchable fires deep within.

I reach out to touch another,
and fall back on myself.
Surrounded by uncountable billions,
all too far to touch.

I remain alone as when I was first forged in the dying embers and dust,
burning cold and brilliant,
Diamond like.
And content myself with the hope that my light falls elsewhere,
a fading record of my existance,
a brief flash within the milleniums,
a tribute to my self consuming lusts.

I can't relate to all the mofos that wanna hate
We live in a society where we can't relate with each other
without being a victim of culture
not knowing where your ideas come from
but to assume you know what it means
why do you love all your things
is it because you truly love them
Or is it because it is what the choir sings?

Sorry just a quick ramble...

Blackberry Pie

__________________________________________________________________

In my mind, every once in awhile I find

A little boy with an empty butter tub

He’s heading out back into the scrub

Picking blackberries, bringing em home to mom

Right over there is where their from

I miss those simple days sometimes

Remember it like, it was just yesterday

Scraped and scratched in that July heat

Berries in the tub and some to eat

Filling that bowl, until it held a score

Take them back get an empty one

Simple like that and I want more

Blackberry pie

Made with love and her two hands

Didn’t realize it then, now I understand

Blackberry pie

Haven’t had one like it since that time

Never take for granted so hard to find

Mom’s Blackberry pie

Spring of 79, she got sick then made us cry

It took so long couldn’t understand why

And I quit picking those berries

Pop did his best, that’s what he could do for us

Worked like dog to keep things up

Nothing to do when your momma dies

Things were crazy, and for a really long time

People got hurt, more of us died

Still I couldn’t see through my eyes

It’s easy to hold, onto the anger and the pain

Indifferent sun when you’re making it rain

All I really wanted was a slice once again

[FONT="]
[/FONT]

Of Blackberry pie

Made with the love of her two hands

Didn’t realize it then now I understand

Blackberry pie

Haven’t had one like it since that time

Never take for granted so hard to find

A Blackberry pie

My little dove, a heart and face that’s full of love

I’m gonna teach her all about that butter tub

And picking berries in July heat

We’ll start slow, and pick the easy ones you know

She’ll never meet her but I’ll bet that my mom

Is smiling with an even greater love

Now it’s my turn, to bake some of those pies

Until the day I’ll make them cry

And I hope that I can pass along

One of life’s lessons that I needed to learn

Sugar topped crusts and care not to burn

Finally I’ll get another slice

Of Blackberry pie

Made with love and my two hands

She gave it to me and now I understand

Blackberry pie

Much more than just a tasty treat

A hunger for love I just want to eat

Mom’s Blackberry pie

I wrote this song a long time ago. Hope you all like it I haven't put music to it yet. It still needs work but why not eh.:)

Sorry


How I yearn for a freedom that hasn't come, trying to grasp what is left of a life that was once so lost.

Not giving a fuck why, what, who, or the cost!

Not wanting to deal with what is real was such a loss that I quite never thought I would know the cost?
The pain,hurt, and sorrow because I didn't give a shit about tomorrow.

So, I sit and laugh and think back on all of that with merry amusement, laughing because it's better than to cry. Not wanting to look back on the sorrow I can't take back tomorrow, would you forgive me please?

I never really cared how much you loved me always asking you why? You would look and laugh with merry amusement. Don't you know what you mean to me? What you mean to me..

Don't you know?
Don't you know???
Cause if you didn't here's what I will say,

So, I sit and laugh and think back on all of that with merry amusement, laughing because it's better than to cry. Not wanting to look back on the sorrow I can't take back tomorrow, would you forgive me please?

Would you forgive me please?

Would it sooth your tattered mind and all the craziness of time if I told you were mine? Cause love is something that isn't so simple as I'm sorry I hear.

So, if I sing to you forgive me dear sir please do so, I miss you more than you'll ever know! I'll let it all go, and go with you.

So, I sit and laugh and think back on all of that with merry amusement, laughing because it's better than to cry. Not wanting to look back on the sorrow I can't take back tomorrow, would you forgive me please?

I will never be at ease. I will never be at ease, it's a craziness that goes until you forgive me please.

Beautiful, so much stuff here is amazing. Today I walked passed my old Catholic High School and it brought me back to something that wears heavy on my heart and soul, so I wrote a poem/song just now. Just kicking back with music right now, not much enjoying this feeling in my chest, but it will fade with my thoughts with some beautiful music.



Distant


Not enough Desperation to ask for Help.

They say Heaven is the Host of Beauty.

A Fallen Angel already gave his wings.

Waiting for the Choir and all it's chilling Notes.

Never to arrive at those Pearly Gates.

Remember the second floor?

Those tiles and that strange scent.

It all was a memory, all just a dream.

Remember the cool fall breeze?

Flying in comfort to a place of joy.

How close, nevermore.

The power of the forgotten.

That which will never be.

Remember, that's all you were.

They say Heaven is the Host of Beauty.

A Fallen Angel already gave his wings.

Remember, that's all you ever were.

The Fallen.

He'll turn you away when it's your Time.




Note: I'm not religious. It's just a common ground for expression. Most everyone understands metaphor and a lot of religion is such.

Alright, screw it. I'm contributing:



"Note"

There was a book, much like this one
I lost or threw away
All the words within I'd written
When read did nothing say


Or perhaps this tells the hell I hold
Untold as often times
All the pain and bitter cold
Spelled so many rhymes


The whispers of my pen
Are giving all the reasons
That moved me closer to the edge
To end unending seasons.



"To Touch"

Trust the opportunity of night
As richly laden wonders
In a darkness fiery bright
Beheld with dreaming eyes you see.

Touch would speak
What words could say
Could words press warm between us
Though touch may be forgotten,
Words may draw the space between us to a close.

And with a single sigh
And the love a touch bestows
Would echo life, or die
Breathing poetry or prose.



"Stolen"

A drop of bliss
moistens your kiss
Your breathing exhumes
in petals and blooms
Your voice, gentle powers
draws time's tide for hours
Though by the depth of your eyes
in drowning replies
You fathomed a sea
of teardrops for me.



"Nightbloom"

From the sacred earth
Bathed in light from the midnight moon
Phantom mists caress the ground
That had found and lost too soon
A garden of destiny
Growing not your love
But a red bloom which longest, is longed to pick
And pricks the hand above.



"Schlafwandler"

I kiss thy hand
And close thine eyes
To whisper less-than-tragic lies

Off to sleep
Where to weep
And search for solace as he dies

None should come,
Should I wake
And feign another breath do take
Asleep, with open eyes.



"Once"

i detected evil in the rush
of an angel's dance
groping figure, flame, and
darkness in a warped dream
of wish and reality is
the look within your eyes,

your coy love emerged from a glance;
the august boy
in pursuit of the hidden sighs.
the desert tongue
licking slowly underneath my feet.

or the scent of sin?
the strangling clouds of memories
where the material darkness
radiates in conscious gaze.
i love you for that,
next to wrinkled, body-scented, etc., sheets.

fingers stroke the back plain
small dents of flesh that follow
strokes against a love to swallow
to clear my conscious will
left unconscious from the pill

the precious boy's virgin kill
now carries my memories away,
with the strength of just a kiss in may
i fell in love.
(forgot myself.)

sedating eyes do not war
with sorrowful tears for me
though I offered my most precious joy,
and surrendered all to this thoughtless boy.

the human sound of rushed breath
beneath the chest my pretty face did rest upon
is now gone.



"Rogue"

The pirate navigates the sea
He sinks ships, he sinks me
He exploded once
With no apology
Four times tonight
His flesh had plundered me

The pirate navigates the sea
Searching for ships
A pleasure would it be
To find another cargo hold
And take control of me

The pirate navigates the sea
I sank once
He was roaming free
My treasure does he own
He stole me on the sea.

just a short one...

Between fruits and veggies,
'neath flowers and shrubs,
I fulfill rain's promises where others find mud,
And you're not as inclined toward long forays,
I'll make you a garden for favor or pay

The analysts and the policy makers
Field day innermost musings and rambles
Justification of arrogant belief
Twist walls entangled briar and bramble
Read the thoughts shall we echo
Empty fear teaching pupils forgot
This to you I pen with keys
Surfaced in safety cast forth the lot

so, when we sit and watch the skies,
does all their vastness look at us?
and do we miss that, which we shouldn't,
namely, the world before our eyes?

but then, the vision of the smallest,
is not the guide-through on these routes,
it's just... that we are writing stories
of what the microchip computes.

could what we need, be hiding elsewhere,
where physicality won't reach?
If i could choose, i'd be in elsewhen,
sensing great wizards & what they teach....

"Hull Breach"

Precious and inviolate: my sanctity.
But memory is like the tide after
a disaster - full of debris.

The past has not enough time
To swallow this wreck hole.

Instead, handcuffed to the rails of a bow
abyss-ward, He navigates
and I am towed to new depths, hearing the hollow
water-filled wails of ancient lungs,

If hulls could burn under water
I would set the seas ablaze.

Fathoms of archaeologists,
soaked sailors and swollen bones
know me, while all the ocean's
tide cannot cleanse the tread-grave
fingerprints that trespass, where pirate
and criminal cast his sword proud,
and deep.

chapter 2;
Day 2, feeling shitty and a little needy, but its a feeling at least a feeling, and oh God Im feeling , and this is the start to my self healing. my minds starting to start that Crawling, in, on and around then on down the ceiling, Let me out of this house just one more time, let it out just this once its my choice, I mean things, these mean things built me up and now i think I'll whisper a little until I hear your SHOUT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I once liked to be a being that hand had been shakin up in life , listening with words spoken from many not taken serious and not meant be taken lightly, ill hold your hand so tightly , So dont worry your not alone, Im with you from the start, no ones gonna listen or hear our heart beats starting to beat but mine just broke apart. stop me before l drop you so forget our love, just let me burn. this story of our life and loves been written life times before and Im done now go now away from me, forever toghether locked in eternal love, , lost now and loosing, forever but never done hear, I think i may start spewing my sinful suds all around here, for you girl can no longer use me, you stay near, listen to me scream but dont fear me , I want you but only if you could eat me. Id be better off with a different girl see. just get away from me , then may you just be able to see what youve done to me. stay back and far away dont listen to me, you never did, so now just hear my distant screams dont come back for me ,but please let your voice haunt us till my angels take your place and carry me, scary and still fighting them Demons cant stand them screams and those still that drool wanting to steal my life from me. Best friend I told you Please dont count on me, I aint been counted on for years, I quit counting the years, but if we do youll be let down and heaven will rain and your angel's eyes will tear. Dont come to this dark place of no end, Im locking up my soul then im gonna swollow the key, Some day I may be, what I m supposed to b and see for those who lost there way , they never , nor did they make it out of this place to be, to be right there with true self its heavenly, so just follow that invisible path that just may lead us all out the race in place of haze then we, we can all live so free. Your listening to me now and now your gonna see the true side of me, bleeding inside of me ,but it feels all so right, with us out and free ,a sunny day with a smile on our face, hand in hand love, whisper today wouldnt be a sad day to die. Its all on me and my knees are starting to shake, Im scared but I cant stop wont stop so maybe ill hop off this path and back onto main street. meet me where we first met , when we were once meant to be, two souls down there in the valley of love, flowers them roses red covering you totally, but you told me you wanted eternity, then I got swollen up slowly but thats not the end of your twisted and chilled up story, I went to hell for you and back . no ones got my back, I look back on our past but your gone. ur were always just a unique phony, u lied to me so now nothing is worth a damn anymore ,so loney ill just lay hear with a needle again and die slowly, I told you im ,holy but hollowness haunts me inside of my soul and its eating me whole so slowly. someone once told me, just feel what I felt and how I was so afraid and still so lonely. what happened to us was fait or it was lost because you lost faith , once in love ,now im just gonna burn my self , soul and life down. Its getting cold outside. I can see you all looking with smile's upside down on me now..... I Loved you and the way you used to look at me. This isnt the way I thought life was supposed to be.

  • Just some thing I thought up early this morning, pretty sad, but felt good to put together some words that fit like that. Anyway, may confuse some of you , but I wrote this to a beat.... SO it may sound and read much different than it would if it was rapped.......Iatebadshrooms stay shroomy family ;)(
