Of Puppets and Their Dreamers [14 Mar 2013|08:24pm]

stitched_up_mew
I kiss the night,
Let this sickness take its hold
There are a thousand angels,
And nine-hundred and ninety-nine are made of stone
I am the princess of the darkest light
Queen of dying spiders
I kiss this glass
And abort the fetus of the night,
My sorrow giggles,
Manically depressed
In in the silence of the tomb,
My weary eyes find rest
Lord, I hate
God, I loathe,
But if my heart is royal
Then pain keeps it clothed
And they will be so rich,
And bloody red and gold and grey,
The silence cries
"Another chance! Another chance!"
While I beg for one more day,
With shimmering golden thread
The color of poppies in the sunset
And of Angel Dust,
You used the night you died
I find myself cold, alone, and somehow bought,
I am the princess of the fallen world,
I am the receiver of
Shattered diamonds and so many flawed pearls
Oh, wise woman of the night,
Goddess of milky things and dim night lights
Take me home,
Take me away,
For, while my soul fights on,
My body dies today

Labyrinth [20 Apr 2012|02:11pm]

xxheartstringsx
Welcome to Labyrinth
Welcome, welcome! Welcome to my wonderland!
Sing your song, forget your worries
drink up the wine of dreams and be merry!

Step into my Labyrinth
Dine with my Devils and don't you dare hold steady
Sing your sorrow, deny life's a misery
Wander through my treacherous maze to find your prize!

Labyrinth,
a place of wonder and intrigue
ash you breathe is not what you seek
spill your burdens, and dance with the Kraken!
flounder and cry and drown in the bones of so many lost lives of long before.

This place, this Labyrinth,
you'll never ever want to leave.

Paper and Chalk [07 Mar 2012|11:58am]

stitched_up_mew
Purest white, 
Clouds gone forever gray
Thin white lines
Mark the edges of my sanity 
Ripped and torn,
Loved to death,
I propose an idea
And let it take flight
Written on torn sheets of paper
From my mind
I believe in those words
The ones I wrote so long ago 
With paper
And chalk
I let them blossom,
I let them thrive
Watered, loved and fed them
I watched them grow old
And grey
And finally die
Scraps fluttering about, 
Like ashes in the wind
They were the idle musings
Of a silly, little girl
The symbolic birth
Of her freedom of thought
And the death of the sheep
And watching the flames eat
The chalk and the paper
I feel hopeless
Surely there are things I cannot control
But by committing those simple words to memory
I can bask forever in the simple elegance left behind
Silvery dust,
And tinted college-ruled
 I feel for the words
That died on that day
And letting myself be calmed
I picture them
And it hurts no more

Stitched: A Cutters Diary [01 Mar 2012|07:43pm]

stitched_up_mew
Let me be free from your crimson embrace
Your scarlet lips, caressing my skin
The feel of your clarity
Soaked in blood and bandages
I want no more of your voice screaming in my ears
Your scent seducing me
The feel of old wounds on my cold skin
The feel of scars forming to announce my pain loudly to a world not listening to my pleas
I want you no more, for looking at you makes me ill
I don’t need you! 
But how can I explain that I do?
The  sudden burst of skin breaking, cut through with the dullest blade, the shattering of the world and the rush of cool air on a dull, hot day
The shaking hands bandaging up wounds that are beautiful, almost to beautiful to bear
The scars that show what I am
When my words refuse to explain
I’m tempted by you
I hate you,
But I hate me more
Ah, blade
Lull me into sound sleep once more
And by mornings light, I shall need you no more

the coming of age (february 20, 2007) [21 Feb 2007|10:50am]

mickeylimon

 

exercising
the will to be forcible
for you to see me against tides
of unwanted imagery
against unexplained comedy
of you here lying motionless
touching the skin at my back

calculating
the risks already undertaken
from the moment you smelled my hair
till your arms playfully linger on my bare hip
then in unison
looking thru the frosty window
listening to the rain pouring madly at the roof
whispering carelessly to remember
long forgotten memories taken in innocence together

leaving
the bliss left under the sheets
with you holding me closely
against your bare chest
overpowering me with your able shoulders
trapped endlessly
wanting blissfully
to be here forever
without turning back
to our lives lived in secrecy

interlude IX [12 Feb 2007|07:39am]

wondering ... wondering
if you are
as sincere as cheating
as gallant as whining
as kind as lying
as valiant as hiding


wondering ... wondering
if love is
as furious as hatred
as scarlet as death
as fervent as bluntness
as plain as everyday

wondering
wondering

a new sense [06 Feb 2007|10:30am]

mickeylimon

 

a new sense of feeling
a new sense of missing
from impulse to this fleeting feeling
of excitement
of estrangement
to you finally
to you eventually

hopefully
hopefully

a new sense of relief
a new sense of flight
from careless air
to blissful winds
shared together from freshness
to slumber
dreaming of you and i
together
together

hopefully
hopefully

a new sense of feeling
a new sense of being
i had with you
so suddenly
so impulsively
from you
from you all along
now i’m never gonna be on my own
hopefully
eventually

hopefully
hopefully

i said goodbye [02 Feb 2007|01:20pm]

mickeylimon

 

moving forth
ahead...
secretly hurting
deep inside
youve let me down
"have the ships been long gone?"

no looking back
just breathing ahead
have you let my hands go?
i cant feel your heart anymore

i am lost
this world is too big without you
ill drown
my heart will succumb
stay for a while
i cant say goodbye

facing ahead
tears against the wind
tomorrows too blinding
all things sinking
slipping
dreaming
away from me
can you stay for a while
until i can say goodbye?

you [26 Jan 2007|11:52am]

mickeylimon

 

butterflies...
in my stomach
endlessly fluttering
i dont know i can feel such thing
with you and your constant invitation
to cascade towards earthly communion

seasons...
bursting in the scene
im not aware of this foreign feeling
bouncing off every walls imaginable
i never knew life could be this conceivable

lingering...
singing while im sleeping
laughing while im screaming
dancing while im spinning
i cant escape it
need to be in this constant state

crazy...
narcotically impossible to achieve
this mindset so high i cant hardly believe
if this is true
if this is you

WINDOWS [31 Jul 2005|10:55am]

WINDOWS
(T. Beechey)

From my window,I can see you lost in each other's gazes
In the midst of the hazes brought on by passion's blazes
From your window,can you see me before a shattered mirror
Cause the image which appeared bore a figure that was clearer
Long ago?

From my window,I can see you living out your story
Basking in the glory of never needing to be sorry
From your window,can you see me lost in a sea of doubt
Wondering what life's about in a world now without
Your glow?

Myself in the window no longer bears reflection
While the lines of your shadow point in each direction
Yet I can't turn aside,ever hopeful for a glance
Of the stemming of the tide of romance

From my window,I can see you in the arms of another
Secure in the love for this moment you've discovered
From your window,can you see me with head bent and kneeling
In search of a healing from this overwhelming feeling
Of shame?

From my window,I can see you dancing in the moonlight
Silohuetted in the twilight and everything is all right
From your window,can you see me as my spirit's slowly dulling
With teardrops steadily falling and each one calling
Out your name?

FOREVER [30 Jul 2005|07:48am]

FOREVER
(T. Beechey)

Forever exists until memories fade
And the shades are drawn and even then
When just a solitary thought
In time is caught,it begins again

Forever is neither here nor there,
It's everywhere and nowhere at all
Yet,somewhere we fall in the middle
And,little by little,we begin to dull

Till we all become part of forever
Never changing,but seldom the same
Name or circumstance doesn't divide us
For they're inside us to feed the flame

There is no beginning,there is no end
Only chance to mend what's fallen before
As through the door we quickly pass
Into the looking glass of nevermore

Forever exists in a dream selected
From those reflected in sightless eyes
And nothing dies for we're all as one
Just as we've begun until spirits rise

A newbie and a poem for all of you [20 Jun 2005|11:56pm]

[ mood | weird ]

Hi! I'm new to this community. I decided to join because though there aren't many members, it's really lovely.
I can't write, I never thought I can. But sometimes, the words just come and I just have to write them on a piece of paper, chew on my pen and form rhymes and in the end, all the thoughts form one picture. I think that's what people call poetry. I'm not sure though.


.:Uncertainity:.

It's so cold, so dark
The door's so close, so far
Tall and threatening
The dark wood, shut
Please open up, please don't
I need to know, I want to know not

It's opening, so slow
It's so tall, I'm so low
My breath catches in my throat
Please open up, please don't
I need to know, I want to know not

It stopps halfway
My heart races
Will there be unknown faces?
Please open up, please don't
I need to know, I want to know not

It shuts and I cry
So it's decided by now
Please open up, please do
I need to know, I really do.

hey my name is Becca and I'm new to this community.


sometimes I space out. sometimes i cant feel. I've had too many experinces to doubt that happy endings are always near. So listen closely, I'm truly sorry, if I have forgot that maybe once in awhile, I get lost. Sometimes its too hard, to stick with the truth. sometimes i cant speak, even to you; because I get so scared, watching you not care, that all just seems so lost. I try not to forget that you'll always be there for me. Even with the worst situations, you say you'll care for me. But doubt, still circles about. And i cant, quite firgure out why its there in the first place.


I also have a poetry community so come check it out!

MY GRANDMOTHERS POETRY BOOK IS PUBLISHED!!

My grandmother's dying wish was to publish a book of her poetry, and the day before she died she was told from the publisher that her dream was going to come true. 2 months after she passed away, the book is published.

If we sell 500 hardcopy books, it will appear on the shelves of Barnes and Noble. So please, consider buying this book. It truley is amazing, and it would mean alot to the memory of my Nanny.


I think this book is amazing. It is poetry about spirituality, love, and life. I have grown up around my grandmothers poetry, and I have always found it so emotionally moving and inspiring. I honestly think that others will love it just as I have.

Do people still post here..? [26 May 2005|11:47pm]

dudesy
Well, obviously, *I* do now. ^_^

This is a poem I wrote when random inspiration hit me on the night of January 1st, 2004, while waiting for the bus home. It doesn't reflect anything I was actually feeling at the time... I was (and am) quite a happy guy!

But hey... I'm a writer. I make stuff up.

Here's some stuff:

I Wish...

I'm sitting up late
With nothing to do.
I'm stuck in a room
A room with no view.
I stare at the phone
I'm thinking of you.
How I wish that you would call

I know that you wont
But dreams rarely fade.
I'm writing a note
I'm thinking your name
I'm smelling you hair,
Your scent on the day...
Life's troubles encompassed all

It's late in my room
My walls are bare
The drawers are empty
With dead eyes I stare
Too much to handle
Not enough for your care
There's sorrow but no tears fall.

The clock doesn't tick
Time wont make it fair.
The phone doesn't ring
Its ringer can't spare.
My room was ours
But now you're not there...

But I wish...
I wish...
I wish...

EMO(TIONAL)
I ran my hands along, as I kneeled
Pressing my palms into the wood floor,
Searching and seeking,
But all I felt were slivers of your sharp words
Cutting little nicks on my skin
With tiny stabs of poisoned recollection.

And the pieces of my heart were never found.

THE PIPER [05 Mar 2005|05:53am]

THE PIPER
(T. Beechey)

When,all around,there is the sound of peaceful solitude
And the only images to be found exist within the mood
That's the chance to accept the dance even if you can't
You'll find the step where it's kept within the piper's chant

When,all within,the ceaseless din of the world fades away
Allowing for just a moment to breathe the scent of day
That is when you begin again to seek what left so soon
And,when you do,only then will you hear the piper's tune

The whispers in the breezes which appeases and consumes
The ripples in the water,color splashes in the plumes
Blending with the mending of a heart denied in love
This is only but a sampling of all the piper's of

Upon the crests of windfalls,there's no walls to divide
Expressions emerge quickly when there's not a need to hide
From the majestic rise of mountains to fountains spraying mist
This is where,in the fragrant air,you shall feel the piper's kiss

When,all throughout,the cloak of doubt is lifted to reveal
Just what life is all about in all you think and feel
That's a sign to drink the wine,the sweet nectar which abounds
In the presence of the lilting tones amidst the piper's sounds

When all above,below,beyond,there's a bond between the land
And man as he embraces life with a strong and steady hand
That's the time to begin the climb from where you've been so long
And follow the echoes of the chime which exist in the piper's song
