Poetry Blogs (2016, friendship)
Their fire is not seen for miles;
Silent, but ferocious.
They are brighter than what catches the eye.
They will be able to burn forever.
They just need their match to ignite.

You are the River of Life
Flowing through my adventure
Breathing fresh life into this weary body
And I'm whining...longing for so much more
You are that searching inner eye
Crying to be heard by God who died
You're force-feeding the nearly stillborn
And reclaiming the birthright of downtrodden
You're the ears of a heartless deaf society
Hearing only the muteness of rhythm of life

Trevor, I saw you again—
I saw you sitting at the desk right beside me in Mr. Tracey’s seventh-grade homeroom,
Filled with twenty unhygienic twelve-year-old students. It smelled of strong coffee in a thermal.
A clock rests above the door. It ticks away the moments.
You were wearing that ratty brown zipper-up you liked so much.
The one that smelled as if it hadn’t seen the insid...

A Lost Friend
A man had a friend just down the street
Whom everyday he'd faithfully meet
Till they had a quarrel and wouldn't speak
Then other things they began to seek
Day after day, week after week
They wouldn't walk down the same old
Then he went calling on his friend one day
But he soon got the message that
he had passed away
As the messenger s...

I heard you voice sing,
“There’s a time and season for you,”
As the keys of the piano cried
With every note you sang.
A queen with no need of a king
Ruling her kingdom
With sweet instrumental tones and lyrics
Bring your people together as one.
You told your people
To spread their arms and spin around
Lift their head to the heavens and not the ground
To feel free and happy.
Your music i...

Here we go again with the same old lines,
But every time we speak it just declines.
So I put up a hard round shell,
And pretend that I feel all so well.
You tell me to trust you,
But I am afraid it is well overdue.
The times when we spoke,
Were a good old joke,
But then it turned all so serious,
And I became more mysterious.
I wish we could go back in ti...

Now let me tell you a little rhyme,
About one of the greatest cousins of all time.
She’s feisty, funny and all so pretty,
Plus did i mention she’s all so witty.
She has hair so long and fair, I can’t help but stop and stare.
She set up her own little business,
Which was all about food forgiveness,
Promoting her juice plus,
Which she goes to meetings to discuss.

If time had stopped,
Where you stood and waved -
A hint of a smile that couldn't be erased,
And we forgave each other.
Like, old friends reuniting...
Old stories to tell and old feelings long gone.
You knew while I couldn't figure it out,
As a bystander I heard the news.
I had treated life like a dream,
And you were a form of reality as you stepped right in.
You taught me about the th...

The day you guys came along
I would never forget that D-day
We defined the word friends in a new way
Without you guys around, I would be on a highway.
How well could words describe our friendship
even pictures are just an indication
The story behind these pictures so precious
that I am eagerly waiting for times ahead.

To discover a friend
Is so strange
The way of meeting
Is always rare
Minds in courtship
Feelings laid bare
Distrust is so easy
So how is it
What are the
A bond for
A beautiful mind
I knew it for sure
When I heard
Of a flight
To mud compounds
And lost peo...

sometimes I miss you
as the earth would miss the moon
if it drifted away and said
it's ok i'll be back soon.
Knowing as I do that
bonds are hard to break,
and freedom is a heady wine
at times like these
when thoughts entwine
its almost more than I can take.
