LEON STOLGARD on And in the right hand corner Leon ' raging bull ' Stolgard! (56 minutes ago)
The sweet midnight falling,
Windows swaying beneath the hefty breeze,
Shadows mourning for young hearts.
Wallowing falls upon deaf shoulders,
Shadows stand beneath their heavy trenches,
Mourning the dying stars.
Forever to sit in muddied waters,
Is one but a shadowed man,
Set up the walls and set fire to the mountains,

Standing your turf
wielding a giant pen.
Power serving words,
determined to win.
Into the net,
out of bounds,
Will you be the
pinnacle of calm
or pull a McEnroe?
Steady your pace
or steamroll every
opponent you face?
Thursday 31st January 2019 6:56 pm
said you hotly and firmly
even though it seems hard stiff
but your personality is really straightforward
the reflection of your heart is real firm
your sincere picture of modesty
your uniqueness is amazing
your greatness does not present your pride
my heart is stuck in your niche
my admiration and sincerity
greet in a chime promise
to always desire one
ignore the differences between...

"Heavy Snow in Wales": 30th January 2019
A sheet of pure white covers her face: that land I thought I knew
frozen beneath its covering, buried ever deeper in its icy tomb
the contours I know so well:
every dip and valley; hill and gully
smoothed by this mantling shroud that descended
as time slipped slowly away, locking us in its white eternity
One last frozen tear d...

We walk a
fine line in
as they are,
miss the idiosyncrasies
of body language
that convey sincerity
and good intention.
On the road
our muse sometimes
knicks old wounds
that the ego
rushes to protect.
to speak our truth
knowing some will ...
Thursday 31st January 2019 2:51 pm
Walking hand in hand
Small warm hand
Reaches for and
Buries in my paw.
Mans hand, callouses and oil.
But still fists full of love.
Protection and love.
We kick leaves.
Golds and reds.
In browns and beauty.
The leaves fly up
Whirl and flow
Stick to our shoes...

He loves me?
He loves me not?
Questions I have
asked myself a lot
since the day
I said I do.
Yes, he has a
like I am
Yes, he has a
can top Pinocho
with his lies.
Our love is
but I no longer
After four decades
in the trenches,
I have learned

The boulevard of broken dreams begins at the end of a snicket, with a shop selling guilt and poverty. Where, mostly men, scratch thin blue lines from short thin blue pens in short hopes of riches. Few walk out with happy visage.
Next an unsmiling heavily built, overly sweaty Armenian take away managers’ tattered emporiam. He exploits youngsters for their honest toil with pennies and always needs ...

there is miss I caught in your gaze
your smile saddles sadly
I want to take care of you
even though you feel tired
so that happiness is always surpassed
I kissed the tips of your fingers softly
hint I say you welcome
I will not let your day be full of mist
passed quietly without singing
embrace each other towards the ark
mix dreams to achieve happiness
navigate the storm of life tha...

I look up at the sky,
And I think of you,
Our love is eternal,
So pure and true,
Like endless oceans,
And a soothing sunrise,
Like the twinkling of,
Your beautiful eyes,
Look up shooting stars,
A sparkling swift blur,
Our love is prosperous,
It's also mature,
A calm cool breeze,
And soft white sands,
The places we've gone,
And the touch of your hands,
Memories have been branded,
Tuesday 29th January 2019 7:45 am
reluctant eyes closed even though quiet
your imagination comes in silence
you are asleep as my lover's heart
hugging happily clutching dreams
here I looked at the serene early sky
your dreams come with stars
to match my desire with you
through the night
welcomes the morning
although separated by space and time
my heart's room has been filled
with sincerity of your heart
doubt is no...

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
So, I bellow not
unless it can be

Her skin can open up like a mouth
It can speak
When it parts
It can extend like a tongue
It can taste
Your arteries are seams
Try to unpeel them
Slip off your flesh
Search your pores
For secret trap doors
Let the inside out
Part it like a mouth
It can speak
Unfold the red carpets
Of rolled and folded tongue
Let it searc...

Let me move to a new place,
Where none knows my name,
And I know they will start judging,
As Everyone is just the same.
But till then ,
Let me find a new love,
New memories to let go my pain,
You can take my hand,
And please ask me to dance in the rain.
I know our love would break,
Just like all other affairs I had,
Some would say I had no brains,
And I am the reason you are sad,
Sunday 27th January 2019 10:52 am
with you taunt me
I learned to praise you
with you insult me
I learned to admire you
with you harassing me
I learned to respect you
with you dump me
I learned to accept you
with your pride
I study humbly
with your greed
I learn to be grateful
with your deception
I learn to be sincere
with all your attitude
I learned to understand
I learned to know myself
Sunday 27th January 2019 7:47 am
Hey there lonely girl,
what are you doing wandering around
these dark places?
Don’t you know that
evil lurks about?
The void is littered
with those who will use you,
scar your soul for eternity.
Listen to my pleas,
I’m begging on bended knees,
towards the light,
no matter how tempting
shadows may be.
Sunday 27th January 2019 5:51 am
I think we can be something special,
So let's just take it slow,
And wait until we're ready,
To decide where this goes.
There's no need to rush,
Because I'll always be here,
For the next million years.
Saturday 26th January 2019 9:22 pm
Today I learnt to cry alone,
Soon I’ll learn to live alone too..
Walking through the grass
Running on the fields
Climbing the mountains
You were always a shield...
Never imagined a life without you,
Neither in dreams we were away,
In laughter in tears I was with you,
I was with you each night each day,
From feeling of hope to thought to love,
Saturday 26th January 2019 2:01 pm
Saw your skin,
Full of lies,
Touched your hands,
Saw Wrinkled lines,
Few Broken ties,
Two strangers ,
Such A cold night,
A girl I met,
Beauty as if,
Felt like I know her,
From some other life,
I think she was Running away ,
Just Like me,

something is missing
in the conscience chamber
when I did not meet you sweetheart
there is my humorous guard stuck
not like when we are in a joke
desire to continue
to accompany you in greetings
helpless stretched range of distance
even in virtual communication
it's difficult to establish time to share
when you're lonely
I want to beat the song
even though you can only

I saw my future before my eyes for the first time in my life
It wasnt just ideas but plans with who I
pictured my wife
The mother of my children and my partner
But I lost it
It was almost here and gone in a moment
It felt so good but now there's pain and I
Started to slip away so I desperately tried
to hold it
But now it's gone
Was it my fault? I'...

you say you're not beautiful
for me you are still attractive
you say you're not sweet
without you my heart cries
you say you're not good
but I like you uniquely
you say you're not smart
your presence makes a pounding
you say you are stubborn
in fact made me stunned
you say you are arrogant
but your words touched me
even though you don't love me
I still love you
even though you igno...

in the morning I no longer
heard the lively singing of birds
since you don't often greet me friendly
is there still the rest of your time to hope
here I wait not to pause even though it's quiet
I was choked on a strong chest
resist the intense upheaval of desire
I hope your day will be more colorful
I stared from deep in my darkness
afternoon sun covered with gray clouds
Thursday 24th January 2019 7:48 am
We were lame and we were young,
Walking in the woods,
While singing our song,
Never in my dreams, felt anything wrong,
Thought you were always coming along,
Do not remember where exactly I lost you,
My eyes searched for you in heavy fog,
I continued my journey amidst the rocks,
Shivered through-out the night,
Darkness was blocking my sight,
Always thought that you wer...

Too much reality
can burn a hole
through your soul.
I prefer to temper it
with rose colored glasses,
as you know.
With my glasses on
I can see past the ego
to the wounds at
I can see that the
past, present, and
future are all
created for one purpose
to tell the story
of how we want to
show up in this world.
I can see beyond
Wednesday 23rd January 2019 3:08 pm
I don't know
what it amounts to,
if there is to have
any sort of
what we etched,
in the utmost
I sure don't find any reason for that, now.
reading our letters,
Wasn’t it, though?
Did we merge into 'another' reality, somehow...

every time I look at your portrait
breezy rustling miss present
every time I interpret your smile
warm desires flow
your black hair is smooth
touch your beautiful cheeks
clear your eyes excite to guide
mean your heart is behind a smile
soft poignant singing
your poetic strings are sad
tough looks you save sad
exposure to life test was exhausted
thrilled with your past
Monday 21st January 2019 11:20 am
I do not get it when they say,
We will not make it one day,
I do not get it, when they laugh,
On us and on our scars
I do not get it when they do not believe us,
How crazily can this world suck?
I cannot express the pain in words,
Let’s run because we seem cursed
Let’s run away from the chains of pain,
Let’s run away where we can dance in rain,
Let’s run as ...

beyond the grave.
helps me understand,
our encounter was
never about us.
It was about our muses
intertwined in the
world of words.
We were denied
the lasting passion
we searched for
so we could write
our soul songs
Sunday 20th January 2019 4:35 pm
I imagine that you are as beautiful as
the smile of the goddess of the moon
staring at the sweet face full of miss
here I am, friends with stunned dew
I hope you enjoy graceful sleep
I wish you dream about our beauty
and hope to meet in our real desire
I ask that I don't get bored we knit
fused eternal romance to greet
latitude of dawn greeted me kindly
understand me who is broken do...
Sunday 20th January 2019 4:30 am
'have you had breakfast?'
your short greeting makes me desire
to start my day meaningful and happy
your sincere attitude decorates my wish
I trace the path of the meaning of life
it feels we are guiding each other capable
although sometimes it's troubling to close
realize our time is sometimes not enough
my lunch break felt more enjoyable
since always in your shadow is warm
a cup of ...

I liked the way he looked at me
Like I was the only thing he could see
or that was worth looking at.
I liked the smile he made for me
A tailored face, specifically
to tell me what he couldn't say.
I liked the things that went unsaid
The message in the nod, the tilt of his head,
the eye contact held too long.
I liked his arms, skin brushing skin

Our ultimate journey
in life brings us
to the place of
You are enough.
I am enough.
I see you
beyond the labels
You see the same
spirit in me.
and that is

Friday 18th January 2019 1:22 pm
Why say I'm sorry
for something in which
you had no part?
Because, shallow as those
two words may seem...
the gesture plays
a pivotal role in
healing a broken heart.
Thursday 17th January 2019 10:59 pm
And all at once
We revisted the site
Where the wounded lie
We examined their injuries
Doing our best to determine
If they were fatal
It requires a detached rationale
It laughs in the face of pure emotion
For life is smarter than you think
Forever your opponent
Even when pretending
To be a friend
For life brought me you

thousands of my words are insulted
in the phrase forming questions
hundreds of sentences you express
so many invective words
you boast in swear
one word hate
you always repeat
it's been repeated this time
you never believe to what I say
I explained everything sincerely
you always ignore my explanation
over and over, your temper is angry
your insults hit the inner heart
Thursday 17th January 2019 7:14 am
I say orange you don't believe
I say purple you doubt
I say white you consider only a pretext
I say black you growled
I say yellow you think I'm crazy
I say blue you think I'm fake
I say red you are angry
I let you think I easily gave up
I shut up you think I'm a stone head
I laugh you think I'm railing
I smile you think I'm punishing
I'm sad you think I'm selfish
I cry you think I'm...

Because of her, there is no sunrise.
There doesn’t need to be.
She is all the light I need.
Because of her, there is no sunset.
There doesn’t need to be.
I need all the light she is.

Ink and paper,
A young boy,
A foolish little girl.
This became the beginning of my writing.
“Write what you want,” he says to me.
I do, because he knows best.
I write everything I want.
I write worries,
I write sadness,
I write fear,
I write recovery,
I write my own lovely fantasies,
I write anger,
I write sadness and fear again.
Later I will write recovery.
He takes my ink a...

time passed creeping sadly
drizzle added to my heart
what are you doing my soulmate
I hope you smile sweetly
the frog choir sounds hoarse
love song feels slicing sadly
I feel like I want to force my will
to unite our desire to combine love
stinging eyes staring at the white sheet
clear tears floating stuck
I painted you softly
the shadow of you is coming slowly
restless droplets ...
Wednesday 16th January 2019 4:21 pm
Have I loved?
Yes, on the spectrum,
towards the sacrificial side.
Silencing my soul,
losing my identiy.
crying myself to sleep.
I sometimes think I would have
preferred an easy love
bouquets of rainbow colored daisies,
a passionate love,
French kisses in Rome,
a forever love,
hugs, holding hands,
finishing each other's sentences...
Tuesday 15th January 2019 12:19 pm
My heart breaks for those
in care homes
waiting to die
who you are
sometimes silently crying
You wait with them
day by day
When you look into their eyes
there is nothing there
no fear, no desperation
and above all, no hope
In-between doses of morphine
when the pain makes them scream
they beg to...
Monday 14th January 2019 5:59 pm
welcome morning in early desires
soft your sincere fragrance a quiet edge
I don't want to leave the day
without feeling this
really gives me meaning
even though it's quiet in the morning
without singing of beautiful birds
and there is no cool dew blushing
your charm still brings excitement
caressing the promise of
expressing your desire
counting seconds of swinging ti...

You opened my eyes
then shut them again
the sun shone
then came the rain
the joyous rapture
and the ceaseless pain
that today sounds insane
once a transport of delight
now a trip down memory lane.

For a short period in our marriage of over thirty seven years I earned about two-thirds of the income.
I didn’t set out to do this it just happened this way. I was a Specialist in the Army. My husband was a nursing student and he was being helped to pay school and living expenses through the Veterans Administration.
My husband never complained ...

Pain in my stomach, heart, mind,
stabs of a knife
I yearn for this piercing pain
I've lacked it far too long.
Punch me, hurt me, kill me almost.
when the rain has ceased
a flower can bloom again
a new blossom
the same plant
Revive me, ungrateful love
Make me another
Friday 11th January 2019 11:07 pm
Glorious was that day:
Star rich the summer sky
Amongst the sun warm hay
We stole a sack on which to lie
Warm was that night:
Grass framed the starry gems
Below the hov'ring kite
We kissed amongst the tall grass stems
Heavenly was that tryst:
Grass rough the bed we made
Below a dusky mist
We took our love as grasses swayed
Fierce was that lust:...

I am not a Harley Davidson,
but a moped.
I am the opposite of a fox
I am a badger.
I am not the cream at the top of the milk,
I am the last dribble you find when you’re making a cup of tea.
I am most unfortunately, unsexy in my sexual prime.
Not adored, but ignored.
But at least I've got a sense of humour!
Thursday 10th January 2019 5:53 pm
Your words flow
though my veins
and light up my soul
I've ever known.
From another dimension.
Steam. My dopamine.
Thursday 10th January 2019 12:54 pm
as warm as the sun begins to promise
shadow of your eyes as clear as dew
your sincere smile embraces courtesy
cheer your heart early on in the day
the graceful shadow of your passion
longing to swing
embraced, invited you
to spur the adam's apple
combining love glue one heart
shadow of your passion
for successive pace
