Happiness

When I go to the Fair.

Folder: 
Entertainment.

 


I am thrilled to see the Ferris wheel.

Watching the racing car ride makes me giddy.

I have visions of sliding down the helter skelter reel.

I see people everywhere and they make me dizzy.

When I go to the fair.


Hearing the funfairs rides is exciting.

The arcade too; strums out loud music;

I hear youngsters at the fair playing:

Rhythems on the air, intricate and basic.

When I go to the fair.


Wafting through the air I smell hot dog.

The aroma of candyfloss too, there.

A burger appeared out of a vaporized fog.

Wherever you go at the fair, there is appetising fare.

When I go to the fair.


The feeling of excitement fills the senses.

At the fair, happiness is my usual state.

Although I am always uncertain, is my consensus;

As all the rides there give me an uneven gait!

When I go to the fair.

A childhood day out to the fairground as a treat. Excitement, happiness, sweets what more could a person want.

Breakup of Success

Abandoned and afraid
Scared to death I fade
Exhausted and dejected
Anxiety to be expected

.........................................

Only you know what you’ve done
My heart strings toyed for fun
Convinced you’re worth the fight
I went sleepless night after night

.........................................

Lying to my face
I thought you needed space
****, I was wrong
With him now you’re strong

.........................................

Your decision to leave
But you led me to believe
With my heart full of affection
I believed in a re-connection

.........................................

I was too naive
Blind, she won’t deceive?
But now I see the clues
Just a firework with no fuse

.........................................

Bawling for days
Alone with God I praised
A chance to be redeemed
This is what I always dreamed

.........................................

Slowly I found the sun
Finally, it begun!
A path to become a man
God laid out my plan

.........................................

Engineered to perfection
I detached no more connection
Freedom long at last
Happiness unsurpassed

.........................................

I jostled for position
Ignited with ambition
Friends, family and new dates
My single life awaits

.........................................

A 180 degree transition
Now I’m on a mission
Jubilant life grows on
New beginning, I’m a pawn

.........................................

The spring of the upswing
Soon I’ll be a king
Bitterness in the past
Surprised by this contrast

.........................................

I rose up from the dust
Like a bomb I was combust 
The fire burned inside
Leaping I found my stride 

.........................................

This poem a rendition 
Interpret with conviction
For I have found the way
Forever I will stay

 

Feelings of inexplicable change

Emotions change..

From the yearning hunger of passion's lust

To the deafening crack of ferocious thunder 

The silent act of collecting dust 

The pain of hearts once cleft asunder

"Alas! No longer!

Must I endure such wonders and conundra?

Do You Even Know?

Folder: 
This Love

 

Do you even know?

Can you even fathom?

Could you ever have guessed?

...How much I have loved you?

How much I wanted you?

How much I love...and want you still?

 

That I carried a torch,

That burned out of control,

Yet had to be smothered,

To only smoldering embers,

Hidden inside me, till they burned,

A scorched mark upon my soul?

 

That never, ever, were you forgotten?

Even when maybe, you thought-

No one cared, no one loved you,

That someone out there...me...

Never forgot, never stopped loving...you.

Never could, even if I tried.

 

That you were the only one,

Who most impacted my heart,

Who made me really feel alive,

Who seared your very self into my soul-

A place I never allowed anyone else access-

And now, still, only you reside, forever.

 

 Do you even know...

That now, that we have again connected-

At last...that if I died today,

I could die happy, content,

Knowing that my one, long-treasured dream,

Finally and blissfully...came true

You

 

Why do you need to criticise your life

Judge your life against others

Rerun yesterday fret about tomorrow

Must your life be exceptional

Do you need to soar

Today is your life everyday

Just surviving makes you awesome 

So you think nobody cares? This was written for you!

Summer Time

The sun in the heavens goes round e're round. 

He casts bright glory o'er forest and town. 

Healing warm rays are shone upon this season.

Filling our hearts with joy and reason.

It's a golden glad day, nay, tis a gilded grand year! 

For we love it when bright Summer time is here.

A Fever

Folder: 
Voodoo

Brilliant warm reds

caress the darkening sky

A fever pitch of

colored emotion

I am not at all

at peace

Pieces come un glu ed

with blue blurred

lines and a hopscotch

of memories


Spinning and spinning

Eyes upward, heart heartward, feet floating

 

I can swim but sometimes drowning scares

the hell out of me

Inside. I stay there often; too often.

Too often, time is reduced to

tentative and fleeting moments.

Brilliant warm reds

caress the darkening sky

A fevered pitch of

colored emotion

I am not at all at peace

Pieces come un glu ed

Though, sometimes-

the glow of sunshine

defrosts my thoughts

and devastates my

structured palace

The walls, they tumble down

And, in the span of two small breaths

I step outside

to not just watch

but to become.

Two small breaths

-Laughter

Two small breaths

-Joy

Two small breaths

-Surrender

Two small breaths

-Drowning


Spinning and spinning

Eyes upward, heart heaving, feet frantic

 

The heavy drum of heartache

beats beats beats

I can swim

but only

if I stay inside

Only, inside.

His Eyes...

Folder: 
Miscellaneous

I look into eyes

that light sparks in my soul,

like the dying embers

of an untended fire.

They soothe me,

calming down the raging waters

that crest with in my soul,

They ignite me

burning their way across my flesh

and searing their memory into them.

His eyes do things,

that my mind in unfamiliar with,

he has started this revolution

That spreads like wild fire

Threatening to overthrow

the balance I have worked so hard

to achieve,

as though I am constantly

walking on eggshells,

the ones His eyes

have managed to crack....

Author's Notes/Comments: 

Something he shal never see,

only for the eyes of you and me :D

 

This is about a guy ive known for.... almost a year that sets my heart aflame. I will probably never show him this

Remedy

Folder: 
Poems

Laughter can't be perscribed by a physician

yet alliviates every affliction.

Converts darkness into light

shows the stars on the cloudiest of nights.

It's the silver lining holding everything together

stopping our souls from straying into the nether.

Freeing our spirits of negative feelings

connecting us with our fellow human beings.

It's what makes memories memorable

and assures nothing is irreparable.

Through laughter, life is given meaning

adding spice to being and breathing.

As the adage goes; all work and no play makes Jack a dull boy;

Unleash laughter, escape from the routine, relax and enjoy.
