Dream Poet

You sat upon her heart

and danced a merry jig

She loved the adulation

and tripped upon the fig



She wished to see your face

that launched the sun and moon

But time and love needs patience

and hearts break hungry swoons



I wished that it was, I

concealed behind your eyes

To sit within your heart with love

and whisk with joy, your smile



She spoke to you from deep within

her body, soul, and mind

In your heart, you misread

a thousand words, unkind



She wanted just to tell you

Your poetry is bliss

Your similes and metaphors

Blend with perfumed kiss



But, you were just too anxious

To be a loving heart

You inked with perfect passion

your chords that melt, apart



Now the past has dwindled

the esctasy and joy

of love, the unrequited,

silence locked behind each sigh


You illuminated her world

for a minute in the stars

A life time in infinity

where love light sparkles are

A dream lover, Rea? Perhaps it's the one that got away ...

:-8) nicely done.


"Unbearable, isn't it? The suffering of strangers, the agony of friends.

There is a secret song at the center of the world, Joey, and its sound is like razors through flesh."


"I don't believe you."


"Oh come, you can hear its faint echo right now. I'm here to turn up the volume.

To press the stinking face of humanity into the dark blood of its own secret heart."

"There's a starving beast inside my chest
playing with me until he's bored
Then, slowly burying his tusks in my flesh
crawling his way out he rips open old wounds

When I reach for the knife placed on the bedside table
its blade reflects my determined face
to plant it in my chest
and carve a hole so deep it snaps my veins

Hollow me out, I want to feel empty"
-- "Being Able To Feel Nothing" by Oathbreaker


"Sky turns to a deeper grey

the sun fades by the moon

hell's come from the distant hills

tortures dreams of the doomed

and they pray, yet they prey

and they pray, still they prey"
-- "Still They Prey" by Cough

:wacko: nicely done.



Hello Abstract

Thank you for commenting, anyone with constructive opinion with regards stanza 1, adding a few words, a few verses in between may need attention, and last stanza. I have stared and glared, left it sitting, mulled and lulled with it, but not one word of change came into my head, all input appreciated.

Best wishes
