(untitled) – Carry On Tuesday #69

I stand in line patiently awaiting
my inevitable arrival, so far away
these gates of marble and fresco,
gleaming in golden sun much larger here.

So slow it moves this line I know,
yet matter not enthralled as we are,
moving ever closer, our eternal fates
as thoughts, creep forward, on step nearer.

Gunshots ring in alleys dripping
dark and wet, the red of blood
washed down gutters to oceans
far, my body cold as raindrops fall.

This was written for Carry On Tuesday #69. I’m not sure if it is finished or if more is needed so any critical feedback would be great! Thanks for stopping by and enjoy!

Empty Remains

August 29, 2010 16 comments

tears fall
blood red
like rain
in a world
ruled by
Hell

lost souls
parched
among ruins

fires burning
churning
searing skin
from flesh
consuming all

and still

the search
continues
for the love
you peeled
inch by inch
from my
bleeding
heart

Conflicted Faith

August 29, 2010 7 comments

We place our faith in people’s good,
Trust in broken promises, lost,
Gone ourselves in eclectic denials
Manifested by hope misguided.

Faith we place to Lords above,
No right, no wrong, just prayers
in a sea of simple beliefs.

Faith is polite yet ugly,
Serene while superficial,
Leading us blindly
with guiding light.

And yet, there is

no way to express, depth beyond
reasoning… Faith can be
anything, put forth by mind’s
in need, a need to see

the greater dream.

This was written for Sunday Scribblings and their prompt: Faith. I am playing around with longer poetry with longer thoughts rather than my normal short poetry (for those of you that follow my blog, you know the style I’m talking about). Hopefully it doesn’t dissapoint! 🙂 Thanks for stopping by!

 

Youthful Fantasy – Mag 29

August 28, 2010 16 comments

secluded

hidden

buried ‘neath
canopy high
green fol’age
cover hidden
treasures
like that of
mansions

mysterious

magical

holding powers
seen by
youth
playing in
wild abandon

This was written for the Magpie Tales prompt based on the picture above. Thanks for stopping by and enjoying. I played around with some “broken” words… did it work? is my point coming across? Thanks for any feedback!

 

Thought Reflection…

August 27, 2010 7 comments

pensive thoughts
deep inside, a cave
of peace, a mind
at ease, so free,
stalactites high,
steady drops,
water dripping
into shallow ponds
reflecting colors,
pale and simple,
hues of greens
and purples,
my answers
sought, reflected.

Water Post (no title) – Thursday Think Tank

August 26, 2010 26 comments

Here is my Thursday Think Tank post for Poet’s United. FORWARNING, there is some strong verbage near the end. Thanks for stopping by and reading.

water lost
to vagrant fate’s,
killed by man’s,
polluted tastes,
toxic sewage,
acid rain,
rape and pillage
lakes and lands,
oceans killed
by oil slicks,
those BP pricks
don’t give a Shit!

take back our
world
from corporate
hands,
do what’s right,
you know you can.

Hope everyone enjoyed. I really liked the concept and flow of this poem so I definitely think it will be creeping back up in the near future with full revision.
