how bout we start off with this game,ill say a subject or anything for that matter and someone write something reffering to or about the subject.


I'll start off...

Daydreams

as i slip away to yester years,i push away all my thoughts and fears,for i can't wait till another comes, so i can hide again from the ordinary day to day. so i can play with forgotten old school mates,drift to the days of happiness. a few more mins i may push,a few more mouments of pure childhood blish.


now someone write about sun sets

Fool me once shame on you.....Fool me twice shame on me.....

Before him, I never looked at sunsets.  Not because they weren't important, but because my own misery wouldn't let me see.
It was hard to see God's beauty when my life was killing me.
So many moments passed me by as I flew without my wings.
So many wonderful chances, so many beautiful things.
***********************
Today my life is different, and I notice the smallest detail.
I don't want to miss a thing, I want the wind in my sail.
I finally found my happiness...
It was there all along.
It was inside my soul, it was hidden...but never gone.
Today I looked at the sunset, as it sank into the sky.
Remembering how I got here, and remembering times gone by.

Inspiration

Cast your eye into the sky
As a blanket begins to be cast
Over the sins upon our world

And you will see a teenage girl
Preparing for bed
Deep blue, speckled skin
Split by glowing red scars
Lined out along this masochistís arm

Your world is suddenly flipped
And you are looking down
At the fields of water
Parted by warring ships
Two collide and merge in a deep scarlet cloud

Then the winds lead them away
Your view is only temporary
And only really remembered
By those who seek shapes in clouds

Everybody hurts, take comfort in your friends, cos everybody hurts sometimes

this is a cool idea but everyone's gotten way off track in the replies.  You guys should read the original post....

Once things are going the way the poster intended then I'll slip back in and join the fun.

Okay Parasite...

I heard the word SUNSET, and it triggered a thought!  Excuuuuuse Me...HaHa

My thoughts on DESPERATION

On a road that has no signs, a journey without direction.
A thought only of the minute, no time for reflection.
A desire so painfully strong, a need yet to be found,
A heart that beats so fast, it's hard to hear any sound.
Looking for something wonderful in all the wrong places.
Trusting all the smiles on all the lying faces.

Needing something so bad, I close my eyes and fly,
hurting those that love me, and leave them wondering why?

What drives a soul to jump, and fly without their wings?
What could make a human being do such horrible things?

Reaching and never touching, to search and never find...
To head straight-forward to bad, leaving all the good behind.

Desperately looking for love, that was what it was back then.

As today I remember the mistakes, and all the places that I've been.


** Just in case I wasn't supposed to write a rhyme...here are a few thoughts on DESPERATION...**

Personally, I beleive that desperation can set us on a path of self-destruction.  It's a feeling deep inside that only other desperate people understand.  It can take us on a journey so far from home that when it's over, we struggle to find our way back.  If we do, we can then appreciate what it means to be satisfied with what we have.  If we don't, we realize that perhaps we caused much of our un-happiness.  
Desperation can lead to many things, depending on who you are and what you are desperate for.

Okay Ya'll, my turn.

Give your thoughts on DENIAL

)))HUGS(((

I seek to forgive
But your shameless denial
Breeds bottomless rage

And next up....Forgiveness.

Sometimes I feel like true love is but a unicorn,
A fairy tale told to me, and in my innocence,
I believed the lies without question.  Deceit and
Treachery were games played by adults, and hearts
Were not meant to be broken by indifference.

But then I think upon the times of true joy and
Elation in my life, and I realize that love is not a
Myth, that it is possible to love someone else that
Much, and for them to love you back.  And now,
I am more careful with my heart.

      But I believe in unicorns again.

Next up:  Faith

"Ain't Got no quarrels with God, ain't got no time to grow old.  Lord knows I'm weak, won't somebody get me off of this reef"

Faith

Faith,when one saids we gotta have faith
what does that word mean? does it mean to belive in something so blindly and just have *faith in the end? or does it mean to work hard at something untill one day everything will work out alright? its all so confusing to me the word,especially since i have none of that *so called faith* i fail to belive in it more and more each passing day,when i never get any of that faith. once belived before had all these hopes that i adored. faith never came my way now or then. i just ill have to depend on myself in the end.


next up is

aggervation

Pen to paper nothing comes
Thought to word nothing lasts
Words once written words once said
Linger on in self defense
Nothing on these pages fair
Nothing written nothing dared.
Aggravation.

Senseless

i don't know what's goin on
but i got a feeling
a feeling something's goin wrong...
i see static on my tv screen
it sounds like someone
someone's talking to me...
i won't listen, i'm not hearing
i'm not coherent;
start the fearing
start the searching; what's wrong with me?
nothing's working; i can barely see..
i can't walk, can't talk
can't scratch, can't itch...
can't find the beers that were in my fridge...
did i throw a party? did i make a ruckus?
did i throw up and make a mess?
senseless senses, non-sense sentences...
out on the lawn and my socks are wet again...

just let me in my house.

next topic:
the radio

through the ravages of sleeplessness lies the comfort of the night

Radio

Sounds of footsteps coming near,
a scream is heard, a sense of fear;
the commercial break for soap and such
yesterday sounds said so much...

entertainment was the major key;
operatic elements turning to country
then blues and rock and major news
now host and crew only talk of views...

Radio, I would swift run back
before TV got us out of whack
to where our imaginations would simply fly,
and when a tear fell from my eye.

little red wagon

radio flyer
an adventure to a child
so open to everything new
wanting to see what is out there
wanting to learn how to fly

I wish I were that child
to once again roll around
in my little red wagon
with no care in the world
with no fear in my heart
nor pain in my soul

was I ever even a child
did I ever beleive with such faith
was love ever easy for me
or have I always been so cynical
because a child
I was never allowed to be.

...........next..........
new love

New Love,

I had just given up on love when,
a new strange rose was found today
with peach coloured petals in its array
ripe with candid splendour it moved
a flash of white piercing the brood.

Vibrating with round softness i heard,
It's soft whisper starring the night,
all was euphoric and the world turned pink.
I had given up on love today,
when a new rose was put on display.

Daisies

He sent dozens
   Red ones
   White ones
   Yellow ones

Trying to say
   he was sorry
   forgive me
   never again

All that money
   wasted
   sadly spent
   simply blown

When she only
   wanted
   needed
   desired

was daisies...

Let's try...
   satisfaction

contradictions

He sold her promises
and she bought them up
by bagfulls
collecting for a rainy day

midnight came and went
as the storm ouside
blewaway her dreams of forever

he said he'd always love her
then left
before the sun came up

Next....unrequited love

A moon like this
is for lover's kiss
the star shine heaven
for passion is given
yet shadows cloak
the lost and remote
a heart left alone
her desires unknown
her soul sadly blighted
by love unrequited.

maybe I made up "blighted"?

Okay, lets go for Relentless . . .



Happiness isn't something that happens to you, it's created from within you.  Joy is a state of mind.

Relentless

Morning sun creeps
through the crack in the blind
and I cover my head
to drown out the light
wishing only for a moment
more sleep before
the relentless alarm
shatters dreams once more

next....Fluid

This thumping
in my chest
cannot be silenced
by your smile.

It is your flesh
I must grasp,
until my pulse
subsides
to a slow
murmur.

Truth! You can't handle the truth!

Truth is more than the absence of lies,
Yet too much truth can be over rated.
Don't tell all you know and ruin lives,
But certainly be honest it's so appreciated.

More than broken flesh or
missing ingredients
  to a love once ablaze
more than ruin and disaster

it is dreams dreamed and never realized
it is loved ones erased
  and worse hateful
it is inability
  lack of strength or will

but in the Face of love
its power fades

now how about children...
