Thoughts Like Waves

The fears that threaten,

To face one's life,

On terms not one's own,

Can bring euphoria, strife,

Or a wild combination,

Like a key to a lock,

It can either move mountain,

Or leave one in utter shock.


Your stars...how they twinkle...

Your dimples...how merry...

Oh "Tides of the Heavens",

Don't leave life in such a hurry,

For there's so many things,

That you won't and can never know,

But believe me my love,

You will be back, should you choose to go.


For life is a circle,

No beginning, no end,

And living in truth,

Your whole being shall mend,

Temporary chaos,

Can seem very wrought,

On a soul who can't seem to undo

What they've thought---


Was the truth.


With that, 

Change comes tumbling down,

Then, in the blink of an eye,

Your smiles turn upside down.


We all live with threats daily,

This not new to us,

Soon you just reach a point,

Where it's not worth the fuss


To be angry or vengeful,

Or feed into some dare,

Where your life is, is here,

Not your thoughts over there.







Author's Notes/Comments: 


Just a poem. We all think things. 

Just sometimes we may 

not have the skills or awareness

to use the power to 

let things go, as letting go

In the mind is what is important. 

Then moving on is very easy,

Even if there is changes we must live with.


The thoughts come in...

The thoughts roll out.

Like the "tides" of post poems... 

And waves of emotion,

Hold onto your whitecaps,

Life can be a rough ocean!!

the black dog does not stalk or hunt

   he hangs, by his claws, on your shoulders and back.


constant, sometimes his weight his bearable,

for a second you might forget his existence 

but he is there- always.


   you feel the claws tighten, the bloods dripping, your breath quickens

you  try  and  breath, 

your falling apart the seams




the black dog grips and scratches

his bark is all you can hear

drowning out your cries for help 


eventually he will sleep for a while,


   but not for long.

Grey skies match the feeling behind my melancholy eyes,

reflecting the soul of someone who has never been whole,

craving to be what others desire and longing for someone to admire,

I drown in an ocean filled with pain and sink deeper into the abyss I have made,

Swimming to the top to get some air, I'm always one stroke away but never there,

Hoping, praying for the end to come; God just laughs and bites his thumb, 

I begin to think how the abyss is much like me; lonely, dark, and with no company,

Turning from the surface I begin to fade and sink down into the abyss I have made.

Really needed to get this out. Comments and constructive criticism are welcome.

Nature / Folder 1




I never meant 

to hide it from you,

this gift I have, this 

innate ability 

to 'bounce back',

and evolve.


 I never considered that 

you would think 

the more civilized,

natural way, 

of human expression

to be such a travesty.


I never considered

that you were that

weak to think of 

me as weak, too,

and I am now thinking,

I should have considered.

Author's Notes/Comments: 

It is the author's thought that expression of face to face,  human to human emotion, and validation of such, is a necessity for a person to become whole and healthy. it is holding on to the emotions that can be expressed without physical violence that do most of the damage in the world right now...and it is all invisible, and why it has become so lethal to life.


in essence...our emotions change with our thoughts, and so if we are always expressing through words, without heart to heart communication... we only ever see half of the picture...of anything. Because the combination of thought and emotion can transform everything. Verbalization is the biggest and longest lie that has every been told.

Fred Ferocious

The Drabble Ditch

Fred was an apothecary of sorts, 

Whisking wonders for aches and ailments,

A knack and a knowledge for it.

Sunshine for sadness, fun for fatigue,

Christmas for chronic depressing disease,

But what if Fred's shop closed up one day?

Black blankets cradling white sun,

Icy fog crystallizing lungs and freezing skin,

A clock ticking in an empty hallway,

What if he left us joyless days of grey, 

Seeping into nasty cuts to sting?

It can't happen. Fred's formidable:

omnipotent, omniscient and obvious,

Rubbing laughter into wounds for a happy remedy.

No Title

This is the way things go

Always sitting here wondering

Nothing left to show

Why was I bothering

When will you ever see

The world is just not the same

Is there any place for me

Or is it that I am to blame

When times are rough

I looked to you for guidance

I never noticed I was alone

That way my biggest mistake




Author's Notes/Comments: 

Just a bad place in time, made me write.

An Expression Of Love

I am gravely sorry
That you hold pain within you.


We share love,

Whether you choose to accept it
In your reality or not.


I am empathetic towards your pain.


I am not a psychiatrist.
I am not a psychologist.
I do not know how to control your delusions,
Only you know how to do that.


I do know this.

When you can clearly see,
That keeping your mouth shut,
Instead of opening it,
Is hurting far more people
Than it is helping...


...it's time to open your damn mouth.

Author's Notes/Comments: 

We all choose our delusions in life.


The heart that falls
Wipes the tears that tell
The name of the rosy flowers
That shed in the winter
But I thought the season of snow skate
When the melty flakes
Coiling round the city of illinius
When all man goes to macdonald eatery to take
The moon of the season

When the sky outs with its blue

Broken Heart Discovery (Unveiled Smile)


Never die with a broken heart
Unless you're willing to live with the consequences
Meditating each slice
Taking it in baby steps
Will that door open for me?
And let me inside
To mend what was scarred
Lost cause
Last resort
Long vacation

Rebuild my inner strength
Rebuild my weak energy
One Step: Wise
Two Step: Discover

Never die with a broken heart
Loneliness and emotional pain
Feeling far apart
Leaving more insane
Am I capable to cope?
Move on forward along
Another big step ahead
Too lose alone
Too feel alone
Too battle alone

The wars we have with the world
Our loving desire to feel anger
To beg for just a taste of pain
Emotional, physical and mental
Judge by your discover
Unveil your face with a smile

Author's Notes/Comments: 

Unveiling a Smile over a Broken Heart is usually a difficult Emotion to overcome. And if you're already Happy, than there's no smile to unveil, because it's already showing.
