    I've wanted to hear some amateur poetry for a while now. I'll get this thread started with my own work from last night-I hope a few post in turn. Here goes:

    Travail prevails in the land of hurt.
    Where emotion takes over-hikes up its skirt,
    and parades around for all to see. Happy happy, happy glee.
    "Come here" they say, "We'll make you better"
    yet all I feel is further fettered.

    Greaves of grief adorn my feet,
    hinder my approach to sleeping deep.
    I see myself, compare-contrast
    through others eyes (I look so pale),
    dim and dwindling, as though transluscent.
    To sleep to dream, to die at last
    this final act deemed retribution.

    Wow, talk about resurrecting a dead thread... yowza!

    I write poetry, most of it dark and depressing, but I figured I'll share a few.

    The Existence

    Collecting shards of a broken life,
    Stumbling blindly
    Through the strife
    Scratching madly at my prison walls
    ‘Till bone meets rock.
    Screams ringing in my ears
    Agony, Pain, the breaking of a heart.

    Where once there was love
    There is emptiness
    There is…… nothing
    Huddled, screaming,
    In the recesses of my mind.
    So much pain, so much fear.
    A rending of the soul from flesh.

    Love fills a vacuum in a human soul.
    That nothingness consumes everything
    In my crippled heart.
    Now I’m a shell,
    A husk of a broken being,
    A scrap to be thrown away,
    With the light swiftly fading.

    Where are you God?
    Where were you when I needed you?
    Where were you when she needed you?
    Now I’m sinking deeper
    Than I ever thought I could.
    What my future holds I cannot tell
    I only cling to hope, a wisp of hope.

    Breathe Out

    You are all that I could ask;
    Far more than I could ever hope.
    You looked at me from ever angle
    And tore away my masks.

    You whisper secrets in my ear
    I will hold all those in confidence,
    Like a little living notebook here,
    That opens to none but you.

    My own mind is a rabbit warren of pain
    But you draw me out from my
    Dark and lonely cerebral grave.
    And I see the beauty in the leaves.

    My eyes burn from the light that’s
    In your misty eyes and I find that,
    The deeper I look, the more lost I get.
    For what is there is not of man, but of more.

    Breathe out baby, so I can breathe you in.
    Savoring air that’s graced your lungs
    I feel my problems slip away like
    Sand running through your perfect fingers.

    OK, I wrote this when Rose and I were getting ready to visit Scotland for the first time. (2002) We both have roots in Scotland and Ireland.

    To The Land Of Scotland

    To the land Scotland I will soon go
    To catch the spirit of which I know
    To the hills and valleys of which I’ll see
    Shine forth, be ready and speak to me

    I’ll walk your ground and touch your wind
    I’ll love your beauty as though my friend
    I’ll find a part of me I lost
    when I left your love to go abroad

    Origin to now, future to the past
    I will know I’m home at last
    Home to a place that has no time
    Home to the Highlands, Scotland - mine

    When I arrive, I will depart
    From the pain within my heart
    Free my heart with your Celtic call
    When I see your hills so tall

    NIGHT HAUNTS


    severed hands
    in a tribal dance
    beneath the moonlit sky

    a midnight orgy
    masquerade
    time for sacrifice

    like lemmings to the sea
    they run
    their warnings go unheeded

    and yet their god is
    angry still
    more suicide is needed

    Perhaps a we bit more appropriate for the forum...


    ACID LUST


    uncontrolled and frenzied love
    a feast of passion
    a bit of rage

    sustaining for
    eternity
    one moment of
    pure ecstasy
    complete and total
    harmony
    drift slowly back to
    reality

    I draw a line be-
    tween reality and time.
    A gossamer thread,
    a deluge of dread.

    What is real and which deceives?
    and with how much clarity do I perceive?

    Since I drew it, I define
    what is crucial, superficial, divine.
    A wall or curtain, imperceivable,
    its existence is inconceivable.

    It wraps, entangles and enraptures
    those who are drawn and by it captured.

    But is it true? and can I end it?
    and if it's surreal, why do YOU defend it?

    Black and White: inspired by my first winter in Sweden

    Black is night and day is white,
    As far as the eye can see.
    And night is as black as the day is white,
    As the cold white winter surrounds me.

    The sun sleeps in 'till ten o' clock,
    And goes to bed by three.
    And in between is cold and white,
    Then black as a night time sea.

    Everything is still and silent.
    Nothing moves and nothing flows,
    Except the gentle fall of snowflakes.
    It's not so pretty when it snows.

    I have not seen the ground in months.
    Green grass and dirt elude me.
    For everthing is buried beneath,
    The cold and still snow white canopy.

    There's nothing that I wouldn't do,
    Just to see a color or two.
    But right now it's only black and white,
    And darkness and a little light.

    Here's one I just put together:

    The sky is blue and the roses are red
    now give me some head or you'll be dead

    Here's one by my late wife. I think you'll catch the double meaning.
    (copyright 1992)


    Hummingbird

    Humming
    Humming
    Humminbird

    Whip-wings at my portals whirring,
    Hidden tensions in me stirring
    As you bend your beak to sup.

    Humming
    Humming
    Hummingbird

    Ruby throat aswell with needing,
    Dipping deep to take your feeding,
    Nectar flows to fill it up.

    Humming
    Humming
    Hummingbird

    Probe the petals rosy, glist'ning
    Tip your head aside as, list'ning
    In your heart, you hear me cry ...

    Humming
    Humming
    Hummingbird

    Taste my soul and send it winging
    With the Siren song you're singing ...
    Take me with you to the sky

    If I may take a gander...
    [hr]
    I Would...

    If you allowed me for a moment
    To share one night with you
    I would demonstrate my feelings
    In erotic points of view

    I would cuddle from behind you
    I would hug you at your waist
    I would kiss your neck so softly
    As your curves my hands would trace

    I would whisper in your ear
    I would kiss you on your rear
    I would lick you without fear
    As I shift to second gear

    I would steal a Hershey’s chocolate
    I would candy coat your lips
    I would ravish every morsel
    While my mouth granted your wish

    I would lick your tasty love nest
    With white chocolate candy bliss
    I would swallow in your juices
    I would drown in your abyss

    I would have you as my breakfast
    I would have you as my lunch
    I would have you as my dinner
    Even steal a midnight brunch

    Through the night we would continue
    Up and downs and in and outs
    In the morning I will give you
    More whispers and more shouts
