Wolfgar Miere on (2 hours ago)
Ive changed all the locks and the ways to my heart
Ive patched up the holes you tore all apart
Repainted the lies you captured me with
Remodeled my life from pain to pure bliss
I no longer miss you, I pity your soul
Ive worked long and hard to patch up these holes
The space is all new
I can rent it out
This space is all mine and what Im about
Your key will not work

Also by terra loop:I saw God today |
An old family tradition
Going To The Store for groceries
back in time every neighborhood
had a independent grocery
mom & pop
living over the store
kids stocking shelves
personalized meat market
bottles returned for 2cents
we knew the proprietors
by their first name
we knew their families
we grew up with them
the independent store on the corner

Standing here- alone- afraid
not knowing where to go or where my life will lead.
Issolated by a disease that is trying to define who I am.
No one around me in my darkness.
Can I pull myself out?
Am I strong enough?
OR do I let this consume me until there is nothing left but a shell?
scared and alone.
Fingers bleeding from trying to claw my way out and find mysef.

Loving Aunties never moved
in case one day
the door might open
instead time marches on
welcome mat gathers dust
baby cousins enter life
not knowing his smile
the family left behind
still wait,still hope
ten years have passed
since being dropped off
in Manchester city centre
traveling to a hostel
for a few days
disappearing into thin air
no goodbye messa...

Also by Nigel Astell:We Stay Strong |
Ice in the wind this storm black night
Stings me awake
To walk the sodden way again.
Again this ex-communication
No black candles, no witches’ curses,
No lifting of the gloom
Just shivering in a room.
Imagining an iceflower
Shimmering in the heat
Of a living body
This genesis of the heart
‘we are not who we think we are’
A phoenix made in time ...

The daemons setting their sights
On the rarest of feelings
When truly aroused
When the heart and the soul
Join forces and become one
To take on all comers
And conquer the darkness
Like a knight in shinin...

"I am an insect and I live in the grass,
Terrified of being eaten at every blade that I pass.
I look out for spiders,nasty,evil and scary,
With numerous eyes,sharp fangs and feet that are hairy.
Pursued by a spider once I'm lucky to be still alive.
He was distracted by a fly,thankfully I did survive."
Spiders inspire fear like few animals will.
Lurking in webs lying ready...

My poetry at times it does
Get me in such a mess
The grammar's bad the spelling wrong
A mess I must address
But this is not the mess I mean
This hits me from the rear
My verse it gains a sudden soul
And in my eye, a tear
It seems that I can have two messes
One in poetic script
The other on a deeper plane
Emotions getting ripped

The crust has begun to form along the edges of my innocence.

Used to be bright, red and hopeful.
Now dull, faded and nihilistic.
Grasping at the last fleeting straws of pigment.
Generations late of change.

It is reciprocal

to read and respond
sometimes you may not find the mood

Loving you hurts
There are mornings I wake up, wondering if you survived the night
Hoping and praying that you didn't hurt yourself
Knowing that you probably
I worry I don't do enough
That I don't tell how much you mean to me enough
Waking up crying because I dreamt you had died
And it felt so real
If I could do anything to make stop your pain I would
But I'm p...

Someone that makes you smile of our loving moments
Bringing you joyous thoughts and some laughing movements

She sat among strangers, discarded pamphlets strewn everywhere.
A face smiling up at her from a photo on a chair.
Handsome and young, she could not leave him abandoned.
Picking them up she clutched them to her chest,
quickly walking away to join up with the rest.
As his friend of many years had sat waiting a few days before,
his love, his wife would not answer his ...

But I stay because I just want someone to love me.
You could abuse me with your words and your hands and leave scars.

Occasioned by my Wedding Photograph pome - a memory seared into my infant mind around the days my parents parted their ways.
No afternoon nap for us,
not until the twins passed by.
I’m assuming they were twins,
they dressed like one another,
in identical attire.
Taking the air, side by side,
dignified, in bowler-hats,
with silver topped walking canes,

As I type, I cry.
I cry a river of tears,

I thought I had cried enough.
I thought that they’d already killed all of my favorite characters

Just like me.
My stars have been hidden by the dark cloud of
depression and death.

Bless in a dress (Or just a coincidence that happened at the right place at the right time, I honestly do not know anymore)
With your new red dress,
you walk with such class,
whenever I see you,
you just push me away.
With your new red dress,
you've made my life a mess.
We used to walk along all through the day,
now I can hardly see you,
just wanna say this to your face,
you empty me out.
Like your new red dress,
you're already stained,
easy to wash it,
yet it'll never change your face.

a more or less straight line for nine hours or so.
Sat above a wing, beside a door, paying more

Mister P, some while ago, some day that was.

Maria remind me of the rain falling - dancing on a hot Spanish roof
falling finding its way

The thunder growled
The banshee howled
The dancing rain
pounded and groomed the ground

The first causality, I was
The first mistake you took to heart.

Mistakes your friends made

All because of a couple racks
5 scorpions you set ablaze
All because of a little detail.

Stood up for you like you was blood

I see my dead body
flaoting on the streets
like an old used piece of cloth
full of blood and memories
that are forgotten
by everyone but me
the smell of skin fliling
my nose cavities
an earth that is only here
to make my scent
a person thats only job
is to forget
a body that reminds me
of long touches
a brush into a skin
