Color Me #SpeakPoetry

[audio https://audioboo.fm/boos/2329345-color-me.mp3]

 

I gave you

A silhouette

A shadow of

A drawing of

The heart

That beats

Within me

To fill

Freely

To rend me

As you see me

And you

You

You color

Me deadly

In blacks

And greys

With no shade

Entirely

Abject

Of light

You paint me

As you see me

But you paint

Yourself

As well

For all I gave

Was a silhouette

An abstract

Portrait

For you

To fill

As you

And only you

Will


Give up

[audio https://audioboo.fm/boos/2173760-give-up.mp3]

 

I give up

Why should I try

Any longer

Constantly

I’ve been weighed

Measured

Found wanting

Worthless

Worth less

Than a word

An effort

My mistakes

Are too fucking great

To ever forgive

Apparently

 

I am flawed

And faulted

I am needed

And wanted

But at the end of the day

Fuck me

I’m thrown away

For mistakes

That could not

Be forgiven

All that I

Have given of myself

Is not enough

To love

 

I can’t keep trying

I won’t

It hurts

To be left

So broken

By yet another

Who has spoken

All those words

Of love and support

That I needed to hear

Someone whose heart

I held so dear

Who finds it so easy

To just

walk

away

 

Through all

That we’ve been through

Trials

Fucking tribulations

And I was always there

I always showed

I care

But yet again

I’m just a whore

Just more trash

Worth nothing more

Than a hurtful

Hateful

Parting word

 

Why do I try

Why do I care..

 

Throw your words at me

My dearest friend

Let me know

How far

You’d go to end

All that we have built

Then let your silence

Fucking silt

My soul

I have nothing more

I have nothing more

I have nothing more

Than all that I have given

All that I have meant

 

That turns out to be

Too fucking little

Once again

 


Highs and Lows – #SonnetSunday

[audio https://audioboo.fm/boos/2173683-highs-and-lows.mp3]

 

So easy to get caught up in something

That resembles happiness for a time.

The exchange of emotions and true minds,

Of love unchecked, no regret ensnaring.

 

Yet never far is the abject torment

The loss and longing, the fear of being-

Rejected, dismissed, a soul left unseen,

To drown in despair long left to ferment.

 

These ever present highs and lows, although

Seen from the outside may look a mite mad.

To a tender heart are lessons best had.

For grace and sorrow both help us to grow.

 

In the depths as at the heights we keep on,

Learning where our hearts do truly belong.

 


Little Boat – #TercetThursday

[audio https://audioboo.fm/boos/2164866-little-boat.mp3]

 

Little boat caught in a whitecap of sea,

Swept from safety of harbor, hearth and home,

Cast out to the tempest, to drown in foam.

 

Violent the tides that crash down on thee.

Harsh the winds that so cruely tear your sails.

Little boat, no peace for you; storms prevail.

 

Each moment spent lost an eternity —

Each crest and crush and influx, a deluge,

Which tosses you further from sound refuge.

 

Bitter the waves that cast thou far from me,

As on my lonely shore I stand vigil.

My nightly observance, my ritual.

 

For you, little boat, crucial cargo bear:

My heart, my soul, my every prayer.

Return him to me, to my loving care…


Let Her Dream #SonnetSunday

[audio https://audioboo.fm/boos/2151781-let-her-dream.mp3]

 

Late night, the lone girl, curls into her bed.

Snapping the light off, bathing in moonglow.

Cool air on skin, pillow soft ‘neath her head,

Down comforter wrapped around her warm soul.

 

Against the rough thoughts that thrash wild within,

She grits her teeth and squeezes shut her eyes.

Holding to a promise he had given,

With that succor, she smiles, happily sighs.

 

In dreams she falls, into his waiting arms.

As always in dreams she meets him once more.

His face always finds itself in her palms;

And here, again, she lives in loves splendor.

 

In sleep, her true, deepest desires show.

All fears and rushing thoughts finally slow.


Not Kept

[audio https://audioboo.fm/boos/2142277-not-kept.mp3]

 

A promise said

Meant and kept

By a heart

A soul

Who knows

What it means

To finally be whole

To be made

With a promise

Meant and kept

 

Hollow words

So loosely said

From false and spewing lips

Wherein love

Does not exist

Just pretty

Petty words

That swear

Uselessly

 

Hearts and souls given

Unjustly

With no real trust

While in reality

Love does rust

Sitting

Baking

In rain and shine

Pouring down

On devotion blind

 

To what do we owe

This surfeit of

Emptiness

This hollowness

This pure bullshit

Does it lie

In our seeking

Of meaning

Of love and lust

And all these things

So meaningless

In the end

 

So what

What do we do

When I make promise

To you

Do we take

and give

All of us

Do we mistake

Compassion for love

Can we ever

See fucking clearly

Through this haze

Of desire

Through this unkempt

Fire

 

What remains

Of promises

What is it that

Continues to live

When hearts and vows

Are broken

And not a word spoken

Is ever to be trusted

Ever again

What do we do

With a promise

Not meant or kept

To the end

 


Just Embers

[audio https://audioboo.fm/boos/2134373-just-embers.mp3]

 

I so want to be angry

I have written

And deleted

So much that my heart

Bitter and wicked

Wanted to say

But I can’t

I can’t

I never can

Be angry

At a heart that only

Spoke the truth

 

Though I loved

And how I loved

This bitter sweet

Reverie

Does no good

To you or me

What was

And can never be

Should maybe remain

In our logs and history

 

While my heart

Still cries

And dies for yours

For a touch

A word

A scintillating untoward

Turn of phrase

Before my eyes

I understand

I do

Neither will chase

Neither will win

Both will lose

 

And while I

Still love and hate

To see your face

Running through my mind

Each night

I so hold close

Your thoughts

Your soul

And always remember

That once you were

The epic conflagration

And my every

Invocation

Of love and lust

And all good things

That turn to dust

 

Beast, monster, devil

I always wish you well

And your precious soul

Will travel

In my mind

In my heart

Till death himself

Stamps out my my embers

For in my flame

I will always remember

Yours

 


Please Do

[audio https://audioboo.fm/boos/2131272-please-do.mp3]

 

Oh, how this dreadful heart

Still races

At every word

That passes through my eyes

How the thunder of anxiety

Flows and pulses through me

At just the mention of you

And reminds me of

Those damn eyes

 

How I tremble every time

Your heart passes through mine

Too often, far too often

I see the signs

Warning of danger

And yet, love, I still linger

At the crossroads

Where our hearts once met

Where I once thought

You were heaven sent

 

You, you, the most divine hell

How your every thought

Made my soul swell

My body quell

The image of you rough

Taking and making me

Submit to your touch

Oh please, heart

Please mind

Don’t bring his face

Before my eyes

Once more

 

Please do

 


The Writer

[audio https://audioboo.fm/boos/2131181-the-writer.mp3]

 

Twisting her hair to a knot in the back,

She settles in to type; but what today?

Poetry, yet free flowing or with tact?

Shall she write eloquent or let words play?

 

Her lip in teeth caught as her thoughts wander

Through love’s past, present, possible future.

Her mind winding, past lessons she ponders.

Suddenly, inspired, words flow through her.

 

With furied clicking, tapping and ticking,

Something unfolds from her graceless fingers.

Her eyes glaze with pleasurous precision;

Words fall in place without hesitation,

As all those tales that in her heart linger,

Flood the screen with purity, remitting.

 

Each sense, all five, bring back that history,

Of love and life, sweetness and misery.

Unrestrained, she pounds the keys rhythmically.

Again this night, she lets her soul flow free.


Knight of Night #SonnetSunday

[audio https://audioboo.fm/boos/2127727-knight-of-night.mp3]

 

The night loomed large, overwhelming senses

The demons howled and hollered to the moon

And prowled amongst the fragrant nightshade blooms

As rain poured down, thunder roared relentless

 

A form emerged from the storm’s offensive

Darker than pitch, ebon eyes pierced the gloom

A hulking shade whose presence spoke of doom

Blade in hand, he took down night’s defenses

 

Beneath his mighty swing darkness shattered

All the laws of time and space were broken

He carved them all away to set her free

To this haunted figure, all that mattered

The light of his love, whom night had stolen

Now rejoined, he claims her eternity
