I Saw Ice In Your Farewell

My love was welded by wit

No woman was ever racier

Yet after my crazy revelation

I was sleeping with a glacier

 

Some things are best hidden

Dont oblige that need to tell

My regrets forged hot tears

For I saw ice in your farewell

 

My fault misreading the signs

I felt we'd reached that page

Where we became truly one

Not paper lovers on a stage

 

I'd dis...

The Truth In Hot Sudden Tears

Out of the blue they appeared

Composure broken, cast adrift

Lately she'd been evading me

My questions got short shrift

 

Nature can only take so much

Secrets discompose its skills

So long we had been at odds

Life an endless battle of wills

 

We had survived enough wars

Love adrift on waves of years

But nothing prepared me for

The truth in hot sudden tears

If Only It Would Rain Today

Its been dry for far too long

The air's got parched and dusty

I'm praying hard for rain to fall

My life's been arid and musty

 

I see how you led me to love you

That easy flattery your smiles

I fell headlong into your arms

Tripped by those practised wiles

 

If only it would rain today

And wash away my tears

Is that thunder that I hear

Cleansing as it nears?

sad dreams

was it true,

sleep depends on tears?

 

to refill the well

that had dried up by day,

 

or to wet the lids, at least,

by dreaming sad dreams,

 

with that tearful hope,

had the sleep come by night?

WHITE TEARS

Hate and fear looking for attention
Believing everything told to you without any proof
Their power comes from your lack of education

White tears are colored with ignorance

Hate does not make you a hero
Just make you lose your job
Now your a zero

White tears are colored with fear

Other people that don't look like you
Not living the way you think they should
Call someone to correct them is...

Intervals Of Rain

Its great when the sun shines no clouds to be seen

And luck is on your side and there's no sign of pain

But life is a roller-coaster its all ups and downs

Sometimes you must shelter from intervals of rain

 

Intervals of rain intervals of rain

No sky stays forever dry

Intervals of rain intervals of rain

Bring tears to clear your eye

 

Remember the people suffering out ...

Sins Of The Fathers

In those eyes, tears do brim

All a-quiver are your lips

I've done wrong again

The latest of many slips

 

I rack my brains for reasons

Did I omit my morning kiss?

Or fail to hail your daily bloom?

What critical need did I miss?

 

As the baby's due next month

I'm watching my p's and q's

Skating on thin eggshells

Pandering to your mute clues

 

Then it dawn...

Duct

As I recall, you cried the first night we met

I found it unusual though charming

Soon it became clear you cried too easily

That daily weep was something alarming

 

Tears should be for special occasions

Justified by unmitigated joy or grief

Not turned on like a tap by ephemera

But controlled, orderly and brief

 

I decided to give you something to cry at

Began to roa...

In Memory

My cat pressed his face urgently into mine

and called a deep, throaty cry,

and I cried for the boy who never was.

A knot of grief unraveled with my tears.

Victory Won!

It's May 8,  nineteen forty-five, 
What a happy, giddy, glorious time, 
with the end of the war in Europe 
and peace around the corner! 
The war years are a blur of memories.

We remember the dark days, bleak months
when France was overrun and England stood alone 
against the onslaught of Nazi oppression, 
with the miracle of Dunkirk and the Battle of Britain.
Soon Germany attacked Russi...

for each life lost

a broken heart for friends,

a sadness that never goes away

 the desolate times of memory cast hurt shadows

dancing on the twilight walls at the edge of your vision

a friend’s laughter that bonded like mortar holds together bricks

 those happy tears can also flow in torrents in a recolle...

Five Dollar Words

To expunge them from my mind

That's the only thing I wish I could do for myself that I feel utterly incapable of doing

I'm at war with my thoughts and memories

Old wounds echoing in the present

Ripping my heart as fresh as it tore years ago

A different face, a different name

An altogether different entity and demeanor

But I can hear the words from your mouth as if he's spoken ...

Dream Boat

entry picture


Let the dreamless boy to cry 
If his wish to fly has gone 
How his tears going to dry 
If he stays far of sun


Ask dreamless boy be awake 
That the dream, is a part of us 
Tell him: "think of a better talk" 
And to change the dark glass 


Help dreamless boy to be here 
And clear his negative thought 
Once he comes to hear or share 
He will enjoy to dream in a boat

Bellow

entry picture

I could fill a barren sea 
full of tears I've shed
for a moment with you.

I learned to focus only 
on the good it led to.
 
What purpose does it serve
to open old wounds

except to serve the 
greater good. 

So, I bellow not

unless it can be
a beacon 

for mermaids
coming ashore.

Forever

Forever ago may seem 
like 20 years of gray,
but I live forever every day.

There is no escape.

It's not the passion I miss,
I keep that memory sealed 
in a concrete kiss.

It's the lyrical 
soul connection
that went on months

before our egos
got in the way. 

In the forever between
tears and heartbreak, 

we managed 
to find ourselves 

and our destiny, here 
on this pag...

Goodbye's hurt

I could fill the oceans with the tears I've cried
Or cover the entire earth with blankets of failed tries.
Countless times what I thought was truth became a lie.
Everything is falling apart, and I'm sick of asking why.
It gets so bad, to the point where I just want to die,
But all of this is nothing compared to the pain of goodbye.
What's the point of believing if you could never fly?

Mind the Gaps

Mind the gaps.

 

There are no happy ever afters,

just some gaps between the tears,

with houses packed unto their rafters

in which you can forget your fears

surrounded by those who love you

and perhaps by those that you love too.

 

I do hope your gaps are many; 

And that your tears are singularly few

for while our tears are two-a-penny

such gaps are quite pricele...

Beautiful raindrops

Dropping silent raindrops into your hair

Watching them slowly roll down onto your face

while the sun adds its rainbow tint

to their beaded form.

 

Crying is my best answer to this beauty

Smiling is the response to my tears.

When Will You Stop?

entry picture

When you crept in me the first time 
Taking my innocence away
Did you hear me begging and pleading for you to STOP...
When you felt that you had enough of me the fifth time when you spat on Me... laughed and walked away... 
Did that make you feel better...
Or when you held me down by a knife threatening you would kill me if I Told a single soul...
When you see the tears flowing down my face....

Don't Wait

{Don't Wait}

 

Don't wait until it's to late to tell someone how much you do love, miss them and how much you do care 

 

 

Because when they are gone no matter how loud you holler, yell, scream, shout and cry they won't be able to hear you anymore

 

Because it's to late because they are dead and gone

The tears in eye troubled sad eyes that flowed down her trouble worrisome cheeks as he laid beside her fast asleep as she slowly laid her head down on the wet pillows that was underneath her head without him even hearing her cry so as she cried and wepted for him because even though he laid beside of her she felt like she was alone in their bed and like what did I do ...

TEARS

How many tears can one girl cry?

----

it depends on the lie...

The world is often not what it seems

Broken hearts

Broken dreams

---

How many tears can one girl cry?

---

What seems real is often make believe

a part of the truth but not complete

My heart is often not considered

I am real and my heart beats

Beauty is skin deep

The heart is deepe...

Grief eases

When grief consumes completely, 
And tears cease only from exhaustion.
When life has stolen what you love,
And you droop like a flowers wilting deterioration.
Remind yourself, even though you cannot see it,
These wretched feelings are not your jail,
This will not forever be it.

You will again find laughter in life,
The beauty in the world, love and light.
Do not underestimate how hard t...

A Single Tear

A single tear rolls tenderly down his face.

From his eye to his lips to the edges of his chin,

It runs away from it’s creator.

 

More and more are formed,

Time struggling its way up to a regular rhythm,

The tear drops to the floor, overlooked as a distant memory.

 

It sinks into the wooden surface,

Making its final resting place there.

 

The other tears are less fr...

THE UNINVITED GUEST

entry picture

Oh deep, dark depression,

my uninvited guest,

the persistence of oppression

is precluding my life’s zest.

 

The dark before sunrise

of a dawn that just won't break,

suppressed by a thirst for my soul

that only sorrow can now slake.

 

The wisps that you are weaving

are clouding my damp eyes,

a cold and cloying shroud

that’s covering all that I desire.

FLOATING FREE

entry picture

Drifting high on a gentle breeze

and grazing the tops of lofty trees,

watching below, all the people move

but there’s nothing left, up here, to prove.

 

Floating higher and into the clouds,

the sultry silence so deafeningly loud.

Throbbing pulse of a beating heart

as atoms pull; trying to drift apart.

 

Looking down upon an ailing world

with colourful rags held hig...

Saint Valentine's Day Mascara

Saint Valentine’s Day Mascara

She cried when I forgot.
She cried when I remembered,
her tears like silver arrows
to my heart,
her eyes black-lined with sorrow.

The ink, barely dried,
smudged with liquid joy.
A big wet splash on the ‘o’
turning ‘love’ into ‘live’
and crowning my name
like a liquid tiara
for a princess
in a cruel land.

Granting wishes
like kisses.
So I wished s...

The Last March

He sits on the front porch, And just closes his eyes. As the clouds gather over his head, And lightning flashes across the skies. His mind reverts; Back to all of yesterday's severed ties, He can hear in the distance, The faint murmur of muffled sobs and cries. His lips move not; his speech has since died, His eyes however, remain ever pensive. And even a cursory g...

The Template of my Being

Been there

Done it

Eaten it

Drunk it

Almost drowned in it

Nearly died

 

Praised it

Cursed it

Dodged it

Traversed it

Just you name it

I’ll have tried

 

Smoked it

Snorted it

Been traumatised by it

Reduced to tears by it

Laughed and cried

 

Run it

Walked it

Chased it

Caught it

Wished I hadn’t bothered s...

For Absent Friends

  FOR ABSENT FRIENDS

 
Somewhere in between,
The waking and the dream,
I can feel you close to me.
 
Just before times hands,
Reshape the desert sands,
I can feel you reach for me.
 
In the blink of tear stained eyes,
Watching, weary, to the skies,
I can hear you call to me.
 
In the breaking of the dawn,
In the dew upon the lawn,

Gotta Keep On

.


Gotta keep on moving,
keep on travelling...
keep one foot ahead of the other
like a race that has no winner.

Then I shall outrun my tears and leave all my fears

the wind before me, then behind me.
Ridding me of moistness, passed my ears.
Gotta get going, to keep from falling....
keep this foot in front, then the next.

Lydia

I met a woman at the Blue Nile.

Our first encounter was her attempting to kiss my face. She seems to be in her mid-late fifties/early sixties. She began to tell me that she is okay, over and over again. She began to cry. She told  me her sun died. He OD'ed at 39 years old. She watched him die, with his head between the toilet and the sink. Her other sun blamed his brother's death on her. Sh...
