Alas that may be true Spooner, but she told me herself it was her choice to leave, and the words of all the writers here are still inspiring to me. I hope by bumping this up there may be a few new folks share as well. I think ams would have liked it to continue......................................................

Can not replace old friends, but it is always a delight to find new friends,

 

Hope some new folks join in with the remaining more established writers.

"Two Waffles"
 
Two waffles did I have to lend to my friend who, having no money to spend on food, his stomach did tear and rend. So asked he of me for these two measly waffles to which this friend I did, ultimately, lend. Two waffles that I did lend to this friend he did take, and off by way of bike peddled to the lake, though not planning to indulge himself with swimming, to the lake my friend did bring the two waffles that I did lend, for they were too dry on the ends. In the water, cool and shallow, did this friend place my waffles of two to wallow.
 
Though now the waffles were not quite as crispy, the water in which they were placed made them flimsy. So off did the friend, to whom I did lend the two waffles, since he'd no money to spend, and oh how his stomach empty did rend, go skipping around the bend. It proved to be quite a ridiculous sight to which many passers bye had foul commentation to send.
 
Ignoring their smirks my friend went along with the two waffles that he did stand on his bike to free him a hand. After quite a ways of peddling in the sweltering sun, my friend near-exhausted and the sun-baked cooking of the waffles almost done, a truck smashed him head on and over he was run.
 
So never again to a friend will I lend two waffles knowing well enough that he might become one in the end.

"To Teach You"

 

If you want
the truth to reach you
You don't have to wait
for it to seek you

If you want to learn of virtue,
then my friend
I have so much to teach you

If you wish
to embrace the flame
you must first learn
to free yourself from pain

If you're cut down
and fallen in shame
you must rise up
and try again

If failure
has caused your
tears to swell
Please know
that in time
all will be well

Failure
is a feature
A necessary teacher
A righteous truthful preacher
for every human creature

 

Learn from those mistakes

and such great things you will make

If you want the truth to reach you
You must know that
wisdom lives within you

Acceptance and patience are key
if you want to
be Free

My friend, it's true,
you're wise

I see it burning in your eyes

The truth is that you already know
everything you need
to thrive and grow

Dear friend, YOU are
your Teacher,
a mystic
and a seeker

Push on through darkest night
Be at peace
and have no fright

The fire burns within you
The wisdom lives inside

Believe in yourself
and your soul will be your guide

Always question
Always wonder

Live your life
with pride.

I went to "college." I collapsed lust into leather-bound books And text upon the Texas Tech tapestry. I have heard that people fucked there. (The library) I worship at my alter, pious Squirming virgin through the bibles Of self-help and interpersonal philosophy. I dream from my distance, knowing Nothing can be What telescopes see. My knowledge is all Astronomy. I tire seeing boys; Time is drawn from me And quartered. I have an age. I swear it's not me; I lust, a hormone burdened child; My prom dress is empty.

Full soft becomes my heart

As bear my eyes upon an art

The hand of God portrays

And sets within eternal youth.

 

Formed of nothing less than beauty

A breath no less than angel's duty

Laid upon a canvas fair

And spoken with eternal truth.

 

And in not more a mortal form

Haven found in eye of storm

As in your eyes do I see

As much an Angel,

Beautifully.

Highest places there are to fall from

As by the sea we stole a kiss

A hollow heart that hides a ghost

Is close to everything and all I miss

 

Where, trapped in this abyss alone

Ruling sovereign by a hollow throne

Time approaches with welcome grace

To soon forget that empty space

 

Cold is the nightfall -

Behind the eyes are rocks below

I'll sink into the darkness

As my spirits under go.

My sweet,

pray -

An angel's eyes

don't look this way

 

Please,

I beg you cease your tears.

 

Do not toil alone

Surely you have known by now

But something else is shown

Behind your eyes the secrets tell

For those who wish to see

A bitter-spoken frigid hell

Portrayed in poetry:

 

"I feel

a sound

that hurts.

 

While the birds fly

And the sirens sing

 

I

hear

words."

Make me not the chronicler of your time

The elle-word, a trite label our own,

I detect evil in the rush

Of your angel-glance

 

Groping figure, flame, and

Dance a dark dream

Wish and reality are like the look

Within your eyes.

 

Your coy love emerged from a glance;

The August boy

In pursuit of the hidden sighs

(And the desert tongue

Licking slowly at your feet...)

 

Or the scent of sin?

Where the material darkness radiates

In conscious gaze.  You love him for that,

next to wrinkled, body-scented, etc., sheets.

 

Now fingers stroke the back plain

Small dents of flesh that follow

Strokes against a love to swallow

To clear your conscious will

Left unconscious from the pill

 

This precious boy's virgin kill

Carries your memories away;

With the strength of just a kiss in May

You fell in love.

(Forgot yourself.)

 

Sedative eyes shall not justly war

Their tears for him.

Do not offer your most precious joy,

Surrender not to this thoughtless boy

 

The human sound of rushed breath

Beneath the chest your pretty face will rest upon

Will soon be gone.

 

And I feel death with each escape.

quivers, rasps

The bubble is a thin film

Soap, water, color;

The physicist would tell you

Of waves and interference.

 

I only thought of rainbows.

 

I blew bubbles on the wind and let the air

Carry them off to where bubbles go

And once caught in my tiny hands

A prismatic sphere

Of water, dreams, and glycerine.

 

The distortion of imperfect eyes

Saw tiny skies swirl and fade

Angels danced a ballet of visual music

Smiling faces in their yellow domy dreams

Going those special places of the mind

Where bubbles go.

 

What did I know of color?

I grew old

And they popped in my fingers.

You can't notice the flame

With a touch so severe;

 

Your precious, accidental gift

Discovery of a heaven benath the stars.

 

You: my apocalypse. Could I

tempt you to sin,

(My slow savior of skin)

To sacrifice the night on heathen altars

 

What breezes could I offer

Such an angel's wings.

I drink
I cringe
My heartstrings
are singed

I have nothing
to give
So I steal
that I may live

I have loved
I have raped
Those who trust me
learn to hate

I am a liar
a thief and
a fake

I lay tormented
every hour
I'm awake

I would build
but in the end
everything breaks

I'd tell the truth
but lies
are easier to make

I can't be trusted
My blood has rusted

Everything I touch
becomes dark
and busted

I have learned
but I want to forget
The wine that I drink
keeps my eyes
from getting wet

I have wanted
I have had
I have lost
All goodness
turned to bad

I am evil
I'm no saint
I'm a demon
An ingrate

I've been touched
by a dark hand
Forever cursed
to roam this land

Ever wandering
Never pondering
Never wondering
Ever wanting

Satan himself
has drawn my lot
Cursed me to remember
That I am blight
That I am rot

I'm a pariah
An anathema
I'm disease
I am asthma

I am darkness
Cursed by light
Ever suffering
I can do no right

I am fear
I am hate
It's my life now
It's my fate

No salvation
No halcyon place
I have fallen
far from grace

In your nightmares
you've seen my face
I am blackness
I am rage

I am a prisoner
sentenced for ages
My life was written
but I tore the pages

I am a learner
I am a sage
I am eternal
without age

I am broken
Truth not spoken
Trapped in a dream
never to be woken

I am nothing
I am suffering
When I speak
I'm always bluffing

I am a promise
never delivered
I am desolate
I am withered.

I don't like the ocean. As a child I remember meeting a little boy on the beach. He was jumping into the waves crashing and lapping at the shore. So I joined him. We were having fun, but then one big wave came and I was sucked down as I jumped right into it. It felt like forever that I was in the depths of that cold, murky water. I felt things scrape against me, cold and slimy, sharp and brittle. I started to run out of air, but then I was able to get topside. This is a poem about my relationship with the ocean, whom some people call Calliope. I'm not sure if I've posted it before:

 

Calliope

 

What did she tell you?
What did you see
when she pulled you
deep into her black sea?

What did she tell you?
Calliope
Did she give you up
because she wanted me?

I will not go back
to the ocean
I fear her
swelling massive
waves of deep emotion

Why can't she tell?
Why can't she see
that she and I
were never meant to be?

Will she stop trying
forever crying?
Could her stormswell
reach overland to me?

I cannot go back
out to her sea
For I fear her deep desire
Fear she'd never set me free

She has me in her clutches
She haunts me in my dreams
She torments me
on the dry land with

her screams
of wind and gales
Sweet songs and wails
Clear skies and rain
Snow and hail
She sings her pain

I will not go back
to the ocean
I fear her swelling massive
waves of deep emotion

I cannot go back
out to her sea
For I fear her deep desire
Fear she'd never set me free

If I dive under
Her waters I would swallow
My breath would drain away
and she would still
know only sorrow

Why can't she tell?
Why can't she see
that she and I
were never meant to be?

"Love is Artificial."

 

Love
is artificial.
Negatively fuelled by lust and
wholly superficial.
Love is hate
an affinity for rage and
disassociation.
Love is dead in my eyes.
And nothing pains me more than to feel it
when I know it's all a lie.
Love is waste,
a despairing sea.
A freak hallucination of the madness
all around me.
Love
is nothing.
statements of your feelings
when in fact you are just bluffing.
Love is unknown.
I am blinded by my fear
and cannot see the light it shone.
Love.
Love is twisted.
Another word that human kind
categorized and listed.

 

 

 

"Father"
 
 
The pain in my chest
The fear in my voice
as I stand defending my right
 
The smell on his breath
The slur in his speech
He's been drinking tonight
 
I am called failure
I am called weak
But I was taught by my mother
to turn the other cheek
 
Strangled and pushed
into the wall
I'm tired and angry
So sick of it all
 
I punch and fight
and kick and scream every obscenity
I shout and I yell
I try to raise hell
but he stands there laughing back at me
 
I don't understand
why I don't have a choice
but to sit here and feel such pain
 
I long for the strength
to stand up for myself
but I am so scared
 
I am called lazy
I am called dumb
I raise a fist to punch him
but my body goes numb
 
He breaks the dishes
He throws the chairs
I'm trapped in this house
and I can't run anywhere.

This battle grows, I am not winning, but have not lost............................

 

The Unwelcome Companion

 

Cruel unwelcome companion,

He twists his wicked blade, imbeded it in my neck when I saw him not. Spreading the fire like lightning coursing it's searing path. The lull will come, but he is never gone, The dull aching burn, circling like a storm in the distance, never leaving, but ready to strike with force again when least expected.

He has taught me compassion I thought I knew. Empathy and understanding for any who feel his constant assault. I know this companion now, and can see his reflection in others eyes, can feel their dispare at a fight they have lost. Yet I will stay the twist of his blade as long as I am able. I do not wish the dispare that dims the vision I see in those that have borne his company for longer than I.

 I know the path of his desire, to slay all desire.......He will steal in small pieces when you do not notice, one small piece at a time. Until one day you notice he has left but a shell of your bright inner fire, and left ashes where there were branches and roots.

I swear to myself that this will not be my fate, but I weary of the battle with a enemy with no face, whose blade I can not parry, for he is the shadow that hides, and wages his attack from behind. Where to find the strength to wage a battle, to feed the inherent ability to heal myself, when my energy is already drained from months that feel like years, and still no gain to show?

And now I find I have been seduced back into the arms of a mistress I do not love. I escaped her tangled clinging web once in my life, but her carress is now again the only hand that soothes, and deny's the companions blade the worst of it's sting. It matters not if her dulling bite comes in a needle or a capsule. I know her price, and find I do not care. I take the moment of relief she offers.

It would seem to me now, that I have few options left to rid myself of this unwelcome companion. I refuse the offered surgeons knife, a permenant promise of bone fused to steel that has no guarantee. A path that can never be reversed.

I hear Raven screaming his warning, telling me not to tread that path.

So I will dredge up what energy I can find, and try again, yet another path in a long series of failed attempts, and hope that this is the one that will grant me an upper hand, to stay the hand that twists the blade, at least for a while.

The ancient medicine I turn to, needles to feed a fuel from within. I fear there is little left to enhance their medicine, yet I must try to pull more from some deep well within.

Where is my Violet Flame now St. Germaine? Have I grown so dim?

Cruel unwelcome companion, I spit at thee once again. I will not go whimpering in the dark. You will not rob me of all................
