Laments To Home

To the friend that I know,
To the brother I don’t,
To the mother I love,
To the father I won’t,
I tell you my secrets,
I tell you my lies,
I tell you hello,
I tell you goodbye,
For the home I know well,
For the town I hide from,
For the time I’ve enjoyed,
For the life I’ve let go,
Tell me you remember,
Tell me you know,
Tell me I was good,
Tell me not to go.
-Richard Ellis

Just something i came up with a little bit ago. Basically my emotions as i'm beginning to consider leaving home for the first time. It might not be great quality, but i just wrote it in the moment.

I'm not always a fan of my work... but here goes...

Good Night, Sweet Dreams

All the wonderful things that I see
All the beautiful ways that you are
Each breath that you take, smile that you share
Make the distance between not so far
I see your smooth skin, smell your sweet hair,
Feel you beside me every night
Your hands reach around me and pull me close
Even when you are out of sight
Just so I can drift to sleep, to dream again
For dreams are just a secret desire
When I dream, I feel myself close my eyes
Light as a feather, I climb higher and higher
Rushing through the clouds
To reach up and find
Only up in heaven
Your heart and mine

I have a few - wrote this one earlier this afternoon, after listening (for the god-knows-how-many time) to a song I love by a Montreal band, Beast. The song is Arrow, and there's a line in it: "He's got his mind on you and information too." Anyway, this is what evolved from that.

Heís got his mind on her

Weapons Ė hands, eyes, stripped chords

Touch, sight, information

Sheís splayed open

Her innermost revealed

He disseminates, dissects

A matrix of history

Who she is

Who she was

Who she wanted to be

He inspects, interrogates

Interpretations of vague calculations

Heís weaponized

Heíll terrorize

Sheíll prioritize

Sheíll acclimatize

The connection reaches an apex

Sheíll give

Heíll take

An imprint of her mind on his

The twenty-second century man knows no boundaries

Because no boundaries exist that canít be crossed

Their minds waterfall into one

Sheís got her mind in him

Heís got the woman of his dreams

Default Parked Behind Wal-Mart on Christmas Eve While Dad Throws Out the Garbage

White flakes drift past the light
That streams out from the high beams
The only movement in an otherwise dead world.
Inside the car with me there is some life
My brothers sit in the back, talking quietly.
As the dim green minutes tick away on the dashboard
I strain my neck to see around the dumpster
Because Iím not allowed to leave the car.
How long does it take to throw away a bag from BK anyway?
At least he left us the keys this time.
I flick on the radio and watch the dial slide
past numbers that I donít understand.
A shadow appears to the left
Signaling that itís finally time to leave.
This is my least favorite part of the ride home.
We get to ride down the thruway with the windows open
Cold air rushing in to keep him awake
As we play The Shouting Game.
Itís my turn tonight.
I watch my dadís eyes closely
And shout at him when they droop
And scream at him if he nods off.

Default Short Streams of Consciousness

These were written during an American Government class because I wanted to work on my imagery.

-----------------------------------

Powdered knowledge
blankets the shelf.
Destined to lay
on the snowy grave
where it fell
when it was brushed away.
Wantonly

-----------------------------------

Great arms spin
methodically
Metal blades
slice the air
Silent guardians
powering
an ungrateful shore

-----------------------------------

Cracked black flesh
holds in place
olive green corduroy
worn smooth with age
dusted in white

Default Midnight In A Perfect World

In a perfect world
its 12 on the clock
the lights are all off
and when you look out the window
nothing is there
except the glare from the streetlights
dancing on the ice
in the cracks of the road
you don't see or hear anyone
and all you do is sit
and think about everything that's wrong.

Default The Loftiest Goals We Hold are Often the Ones With Least Value

The meadow is full of flowers
but the most beautiful of all the flowers is down a hill
out of reach
plainly visible but unobtainable
when you reach it, disappointment overtakes you
for it is merely a flower

Default Untitled (or In The Bowery)

and this is now
the end forever
but it's only starting
turn me off
and let me down
it's better to go
without a fight
just sink sink sink
to the bottom
where you want
to the pulse
and the heart
I can hear you breathe

Default I Sometimes Dream of What it Would Be Like Just Moments Before the World Ends

I sometimes dream of what it would be like just moments before the world ends.

Ash falling like snow, choking life in its counterfeit winter
Orange glows in the distance, signals of the end of time
Teary-eyed mothers clinging to their children, weeping their final goodbyes

I sometimes dream of what I would do just moments before the world ends.

I would lie in the grass of a park, enjoying nature for one last moment
Or sing a song at the top of my lungs, announcing my acceptance of our fate
Or embrace loved ones for the last time, thanking them for a life worth living

I sometimes dream of who I would be with just moments before the world ends.

And this dream is always the same, no matter the ending
Hand in hand and peaceful in your grasp
I am with you

Default Hyperspace Funbox

Vibrations like whoa.

Back in my hyperspace funbox.
There's this weird wall that's not really a wall.
It's just a continuum covered in green and purple squares.
Inside the squares are question marks and sevens.
Always moving and shifting, but I don't know what is what.

The same box is in the middle.
Same color scheme but so weird.
So damn hard to wrap my head around.
I think it might actually be my head.
There are these strange pink hieroglyphs on the box.
I need to learn them. I need them. They are the answer.

Who the fuck is that?
And what's he doing fucking with my Space/Time?
The Riddler, huh?

The Riddler is fucking with me,
putting his hands in my face,
blocking the message.
I need to see the key. I need the answer.

The Riddler taunts me.
Some interdimensional spirit, stuck in the middle of a trip.
Guarding the next level.
He doesn't laugh, but you know he wants to.
Laughing that you're still in the mother fucking hyperspace funbox.
"Haha, thats all you got?"
Fuck you Riddler! You're stuck in this fucking funbox for life.

I open my eyes.
Girls dancing inside the waterfall.
Rocks become Easter Island like it ain't no thing.
I see the Lion of Zion in a mountain.
Shit. I guess the Riddler got me.

Default Third Eye Adventures

I opened up my mind's eye
Looked inside but nothing was there.
Turned outside but no fruit to bear.
A cold summers' frost.
A hot winters' sun.
No matter the cost,
Together as one.

Infinite brilliance of infinite thought.
Infinite questions of answers sought.
Infinite layers of infinite gray.
As the mirrors of perception fade...

Default At The Edge of Her Ocean

I glance at the edges of her ocean
Unsure
Should I take this plunge?
If I do I will be lost
Forever.
Surrounded by unfathomable beauty
Suspended in unending, ceaseless, joy
I know full well that if I choose to dive
My gaze will never waver from her eyes.

Default Something Real

A man who hated poetry
Stepped out in the rain one day
His shoulders were hunched as he pulled up his hood
He was looking for something to say

Life had become so dreary
To get out of bed was a chore
He'd abandoned his friends toward reclusive ends
And the ladies all found him a bore

His car was decrepit and rusty
His clothes, they were ragged and worn
He looked like a slob with a low-paying job
And his hair was unstylishly shorn

The judgement of others he dreaded
Such weight did he give to their jeers!
He never would try, he'd just sit back and cry
That he didn't fit in with his peers!

He wasn't the king of nothin'
Couldn't sing or draw a cartoon
An eccentric of sorts and he didn't play sports
And he'd never even been to the moon!

He wished he'd had something to offer
For the world to know he had worth
But it's hard to go forth and to live out one's dreams
When one carries the weight of the Earth

He wanted to live in solitude
At the same time, attention he craved
He felt trapped in the box of a sad paradox
And quite sure that he couldn't be saved

Well the rain it kept on a-pourin'
It soaked through his hood to his hair
He stood and he thought and he thought as he stood
That surely he was going nowhere

Was this what the good Lord intended?
Limbo was all that he'd known
It seemed plain in his mind the he'd stayed far behind
While everyone else had all grown

Along came a break in the rainfall
The sun momentarily shone
Then all in a flash he sat down on his ass
And he scribbled his very first poem

It took him a couple of hours
He erased it again and again
It wasn't that good but he threw back his hood
And looked up at the sky with a grin.

Default Your Heroes Are Dead

Your Heroes are dead
They're all in your head
Their memories fade
As the sun rises, red, burning.
A monument to ubiquity.

Your Heroes are gone
They left with the dawn
Your childish wishes
While the moon dances, silver, shining.
A monument to naivete.

Your Heroes have no legacy
Save fleeting hypnopśdic memories
And when nothing is left
We'll start again.




-----------------

I apologize for the multiposts, but I prefer to have each poem separate.

Tears

Dripping like rain falling off leaves
Silent to those who do not truly listen.
Building slowly
In the downpour to overflowing.
Slipping smoothly to Mother Earth
Who welcomes and nurtures until the clouds are spent
The tress and plants provide their gifts
Animals sing their songs and offer their strengths
The scent of the forest hangs in the air
As the rain cleanses ad refreshes
The wounded heart.

Take my word and bend it to your meaning,
Take my voice and fade it to nothing,
Take my ink and erase its being,
Take my action and make it uncaring,
Take anything you wish and turn it into something,
Just donít take my heart and destroy its feeling.

Can I tell you something about myself?
That I once was a man of confusion,
A man who knew nothing of himself,
One that shrank into his melancholy soul,
I neglected the courage of conviction,
Thinking not of roads less travelled,
Barely moving toward my dreams,
A shadow where a man should be.

Can I tell you what I wish to become?
The man whose shoulders catch the spotlight,
Who people admire not care little of,
Recognised as a man of talent or substance,
Never forgotten as a man of nothing,
A figure of liking or perhaps even love,
Clichťd of me you may think,
But to be cared for and revered is my wish.

Can you tell me how to get there?
Hard work and persistence is only required,
Devotion to the cause of life there must be,
Carpe Diem or something similar,
Live long and live wise a scholar would say,
Give thought before every action,
Perhaps then I may be the person I seek,
But after all this, would I be me?

Donner, Party of Two

by castingpearls

Falling snow on naked oaks
Praying for merciful weather
I walk along the licking flames
but a lie cannot live forever
Stepped into darkness abandoning fear
I thought I could leave this place
I could run to the warmth, the heat and the fire
away from a cold embrace
But the fire is only a memory
All that's left is dangerous ice
So I cling to skeletons of life
and hope it will suffice
How long, how long, before this wintry
isolation ends
How so alone I still endure
if only to pretend
Long days of darkness
Warm days of dreams
and so, and so, it goes
Eventually it will be Spring
But now, all is blind snow.

Mercurial more wayward by the hour
The shackles fall away I'm in your power



People throw rocks at things that shine.

Paradise Lost (Apologies to Milton)

by castingpearls

Wander through the Garden
chasing shadows from the past
Such beautiful profusion of
blooms that never last
I desired your entire heart
but settled for spare change
Now time is irreversible
these years none rearranged
I strayed outside this Paradise
for warmth and yes, respite
No matter how I tried to bend
it was never meant to fit
There are no suitable flowery words
no tender sad good-bye
I have to search within myself
to find some light inside
Yes, if there is someone at fault
I take the blame in full
With my permission go point a finger
But really, who's the fool?
Before you strive again to touch the sun
I ask you to think about
Is it worth the sorrow we have endured
Did you leave or were you cast out?

Free me, free yourself
A life of sacrifice controlled me
But those promises I made
No longer hold me
Mercurial more wayward by the hour
The shackles fall away I'm in your power



People throw rocks at things that shine.

Avalanche

by castingpearls

You stepped on it
not in it
'cause that's another story

If you lose it
or win it
there still is no glory

There's thin ice all around
No rescuers to be found

But if you're still adventurous
I'm here.

ok something I just wrote

Angels

You will get through the darkness
You will find your way
Heartbroken, feeling alone
We are here canít you hear them say?
Canít you feel us around?
Canít you hear us?
Sense us?
So good at hiding from your light
So good at running and taking flight
So good at burying the hurt inside
So good at buying into societies lies
So good at seeing all thatís wrong
So hard to see your inner light
So hard to see youíre a child taking flight
So hard to know who you are
So hard to shoulder it all alone
So hard to know where to turn
So hard, so hard so hard.

Time to step back into the flow
Time to stop
Take a deep breath
And let go
Time to walk with us by your side
Time to remember your sense of pride
Time to take joy in everything
Time to let your life truly begin
Time to soar
Time to set yourself free
Time to be true to you
Time to embrace your inner light
Itís Time, Itís Time Itís Time
Embrace it
Live it
Love it
Dance it
Sing it

But most important of all be it!
