unknown

Silence

There, there in the graveyard was Silence,

No, not Peace, just not Violence.

 

Anger and Torment had left, but Silence had remained,

For what had happened, only Silence had been gained.

 

Silence had hung around,

Just hanging there, starring at the ground.

 

Silence was not old, but was among them now,

Silence was there, tied to the bough.

Subliminal Message

Poems are the path to inner peace.

Are the mind and soul aligned?
 
The test to re-write  my own
path through past in future.
 
To tempt ones own fate with 
inner radiance beaconing 
peace and light.
 
Walk with me hand in hand
down through all 
my fears and dreams by 
path made way by time.

Crawling

You're still lost within the time
The ultimate crime
That you couldn't really hurt
but now you're gone and just inert

You try to find meaning in the days
That it wasn't just a phase
That you could just lay in the sun
and never say you jumped the gun

and you lie wide awake at night
Hard at thought, ready to write
You wrote on a piece of paper "I think this time, I'll be okay"
But you don't really know, your thoughts never stay

And 10,000 Miles Left in Question

Gone and running in an irreversible tension
And 10,000 miles left in question
Of ideas we just forget to mention

And the thoughts are left in the dark and disappear
and in comes walking, the unavoidable fear
A unknown direction, a road we somehow got sucked in to steer

Trying to take calm within the unpredictable shadows
Take control of your senses and dodge your arrows
and forget all of the anxiousness that somehow follows





Author's Notes/Comments: 

I was on the bus and the beginning part just clicked in my head,

The rest I came up within a few minutes.

A Breeze of Memory

A graveyard of dead trees

Fallen leaves of vast red and orange seas

Squirrels scurry before winter strikes

As children play while others pass on bikes

 

harmony of the trees an the wind come together and sing

As a bird chirps then stops to clean it's wing

Children shrieking and screaming as they play

Angry armies of cars roar past, then fly away

 

Memories start of when I was a kid

Only broken away by time an what it did

Sitting still only in question

Of who I am and to what is my impression

 

I laughed . . . I played here

I was happy unknown of fear

But then reality again breaks memory's connection

Only to be lost again, still unknown of my reflection

Author's Notes/Comments: 

annnd, here you have yet another class assignment that I did way back.

 

??? Who Am I Now?

Once was a

free-spirited child.

 

I ran on all fours

like Spirit* and Rain*,

galloping through the grass,

soaring over sidewalks.

 

 

Once I was a

free-spirited child.

 

I could run around naked

without a care in the world.

 

 

Once I was a

free-spirited child.

 

The world was mine,

and I was invincible!

 

 

Once I was a

free-spirited child.

 

But now, I am....

Author's Notes/Comments: 

I'd like to know what you guys think of this... I have been writing it for some time now...

I also don't know 100% about the title.... open to suggestions!

 

*From the movie Spirit

I Have an Unknown Friend

I have an unknown friend, who lives in the sky

Why I question him, I do not know why

I should not go to look for him, they say

But I know he'll want to look for me someday

I wonder, I ponder, even as I sleep

I dare not awake, for I have gone too deep

But again, the sun calls to another abrupt wake

Alone again, to find an answer for my sake

I take another step foward, for this I will fight

Forever wrapped in this question, how it echoes through the burning light








Tempting

When, where, who, what

I already know the rest
Dreams come and go
Crushes are put to bed
The unknown lying in the future 
Would you ask if you had the chance ? 
Take a look... What harm could be done 
Discover all in a glimpse 
Tempt you! Urge you! Dare you!

Unknown - December 9, 2011

They to to understand,

Simply cannot comprehend,

This pain where I stand;

This misery that will not end.

 

My mind of fear and doubt,

And of pain I cannot bare.

I am always unsuccessful,

In ridding this despair.

 

I am unknown,

To myself and others.

These problems I am,

Cannot hide under covers.

 

I may cut or burn,

Or harm myself tonight.

To me, it's my turn,

To bare my mental fight.

 

I am unknown,

To myself and others.

But these problems I am,

Will no longer be uncovered.

 

I will wake up tomorrow,

And my pain will not be shown.

But this pain is real,

Just to others, it's unknown.
