Escapism

FLOATING ON AIR......

HAVE YOU EVER FELT LIKE YOU WERE FLOATING ON AIR?

NO WORRIES AT ALL, NOT HAVING TO CARE,

KNOWING THAT EVERYTHING WILL BE ALRIGHT

WHILE SOARING IN THE SKY AT NIGHT.



HAVE YOU EVER FELT LIKE YOU WERE FLOATING ON AIR?

FEELING FREE WITHOUT ANY DISPAIR.

NOT THINKING ABOUT WHAT TOMORROW BRINGS

JUST FLYING HIGH AS THE WIND SOFTLY SINGS.



HAVE YOU EVER FELT LIKE YOU WERE FLOATING ON AIR?

BREEZING OVER THE HORIZON, THE WIND IN YOUR HAIR.

LETTING GO OF ALL YOUR DEEPEST FEARS

SEEING THINGS NOW IN WAYS THAT ARE CLEAR.



HAVE YOU EVER FELT LIKE YOU WERE FLOATING ON AIR?

THE CLOUDS ROLLING BY, YOU FLYING HERE AND THERE.

THE FEELING OF CARLESSNESS IS ALL TOO RARE

BUT LIFE IS BETTER HWEN YOUR FLOATING ON AIR.

H.U.G.

All I need is a hug, where I can spare all my tears.

Not a cry of sadness,

Or one of glee.

But one of mixed emotions



A Hug from Mother, where such warmness triggers a tear, soon followed my millions.



And when I no longer have tears and done with the hug, I'll walk away with a smile.



For there is no need of words or explanation for the need of a hug.

A simple poem that I wrote after reading a passage of "A Tree Grows in Brookly" by Betty Smith

My Poems

Catchin lyrical sounds from the ground into your compound,
Many Mc's "Yeah they were Great" but now the world has found
Sayin it once won't be enough "You want some more POW"
Calling out names don't be affraid, "(crew:That's how we get down)"
50 you straight? Set a date yeah it's all good.  
The ball has been tossed, got a grip, "Now let me rep hood".
Many compads on my side, "No need to beware"
(bring it: Set a time and date raise the stakes), "Just you and me be there"
Discussing our moves and their last  "(barkout: Let's make these gas ass niggas, Watch my figures)"
This one's for the kids "(kids: Yeah daddy did)" That makes me feel proud
(Yeah Mon': Listen and learn is how i teach dem, I sat back and I watched, "now I release him")
(my Nigga: The stakes have been raised they can't touch it. Wanna talk come back here and grab a bucket)

Beautiful disaster

A spiral staircase perpetually going down

it plundges Down to the ground below

I fall on the floor

Looking for someone to help me up

Everyone walks by

The streets so fierce

Nothing to do

Struggle to get up

I picked myself off the ground

wipe off the foot prints

That was engraved walking out my life

Smile Widely

No more tears

No more

Help myself

I finally learned how

I took myself off the ground

Now here i am

Standing before you

Holding on to life as I should

Joy Uncouth

Upon a time in the thaw of the common

Lay a woman with a waft of fragrance abiding by her side.

Her tresses all blown astray and a quiver on her lips

A sneeze upon her head and nose that was red

She shimmied as she walked

Her long hair barely able to keep with her mane

She stood as the wind bellowed beneath her

Her heart all wild while she awaited the coming



She was a gentle soul, who made things wonderous

Her smile whipped a stream of joy to all around.

Lost like a deer in the brilliance of a flash

She wondered where life would lead her, but didn?t care

She haunted the credence of what could become

Every moment spent beside her is a caress of the wind

Perched on her lips is a tremulous smile, forever.

In her strength I draw vigour, in her presence, comfort



She has the strength of an ox when provoked

The outward calm belies a tumult within

The cheeriness lays a mind of satire

The wild kindled, yet the fear of being drawn

She stands upon the hearth and yet visits neverland

All around her she sees and deciphers much

Some that encompass life and some that encounter it

Here journey is endless, her destination fruitful



Upon this earth she stands and stares

Somewhere in the distance the setting sun beckons

In the horizon a speck of clear sky in a shepherd?s evening

Orange as the pale of time and yet so obviously clear to her

She stepped on the sands of my heart and it pales to her haze

Oblivious to her, I stand in the shadows, she cheers me on

Happiness is not what she seeks, but a peace ever becoming

Strange she feels so sad, as if the dying day is the bequeathing of her scepter



She watches and as the soles of her feet touch the glow of the moonlight

Her heart flutters, she stands still, somewhere in the distance she sees life

Full of vive and joy, full of incandescent frivolousness

Author's Notes/Comments: 

This was just as an afterthought. Well a much bigger afterthought.I wanted expression and this is what I could find

AWAKENING

Reflections in the misty remnants

Of a shadowed haze

Dimly glimmer in the shaded tints

Of bygone yesterdays

The muted screams of twilight

Echo throughout and beyond

Captured in the hindsight

Of the once-unsevered bond



Now broken,widely scattered

As the timeless winds increase

The moment now hangs shattered

Clinging by a lonesome piece

As the whispers of a notion

Resonate within the soul

And span many an ocean

Where each tide declines to roll



What will be the outcome

And who'll remain to see?

Are we fated to begin from

The dusk of eternity?

As the images cast in silohuette

Serve as portraits of us all

That gaze upon what awaits still yet

In the rise before the fall

Falling Away

You fragile little thing,

life burning so bright,

and heart beating, beating so sweet.



Its frantic pace, makes your neck,

dance with little jerks, as it is highlighted,

by your womanly grace.



Your breathing is fast, your breaths so short,

have you any idea, how the singing of your blood,

mingled with your desire and fear,

cause these dark things to stir.



Fragile beauty, why is it you run,

you've gotten such a late start now,

this race is long begun.



You don't truly seek escape,

at least not from this cold embrace.

The needles and the drugs, never were enough,

so it's me you've come to find,

I offer you such a sweet release,

so different, than any other kind.



But wolves are wolves,

and sheep always, sheep, sweetheart,

you've sheared the wool away,

but you can never wash off,

no you never can,

get rid of that intoxicating smell,

the fear just under your skin.



I can give you things you've never known,

such things, oh these things,

that mortals are seldom shown.



Your flawless skin, just begs,

my hunger to come on in,

never seeming to understand,

you can't make monthly payments like some loan,

I'll give you, in the here and now,

but what I will take from you,

is something which, nothing can replace.



Give me of your life,

warm me with your passion,

take this pleasure of your flesh,

as you take in the cold,

leave the loneliness behind,

as you are consumed, in the void.



Find your acceptance in nothingness,

find your life in the absence of everthing,

feel completion as you get what you've sought,

tell me how it feels, as it all,

fails to bring the relief, that you thought.

Forget Me

I am, as you know,
Just another fool.
One that is forgotten,
As each moment passes.

So as will you,
Forget me,
as others do,
Their words a lie.

I will never forget you,
I will always love you,
I will never leave,
I will never hate you.

Infinite it seems,
How many speak the same words,
Over and over again,
And it ends in the same result.

Forget me,
As so many countless others have,
Forget me,
And don't remember the joy I brought.

I want to rise,
To become something,
Be something greater than myself,
And it shall be forgotten.

Forget me,
And my pathetic dreams,
Forget me,
I'm just another dreamer.

Sit down,
And listen,
To the dark night,
Time is passing.

Everything will be forgotten.
In the end of it all,
Only now matters,
Will you forget me now?

Hush

As the lines blurr between love and obedience,

she covers her mouth as to not wake the giant

For his earth-shaking groans that leak out are a reminder to what he is capable of.

Tip-toe into the mind of this wrech and you'll find a spring of reasoning.

It billows out from between her ears instead of from between her lips.

Quiet riots explode in her body making everything inside her ache like that broken heart of hers once did.

But she is not in pain anymore.

No, that phase has past without haste

The only thing she feels inside her heart now is that Monster.

He eats awat at that tattered heart.

With every bite an "i dont know" slips out and ruins just one more thing.

All she can do now is wince and ride out the storm.

Not because it hurts her,

But becuase she doesnt care.
