The Sun and The Horizon

At last the sun and the horizon meet, the smoldering giant coming to rest for the day the unfaltering horizon providing a resting place  Off they go into the darkness of the night.    I am the sun and you are my horizon,  You are a perpetual stretch of landscape  for me to lay my…

My Universe

There is that feeling again like I carry the emptiness of the world inside of me Spatial voids accumulating one by one inside my chest Darkness, silence, death… ____________________________________________ Look into my eyes, look into the abyss. So vast, and black, you will see nothing. The black will swallow you whole Become part of my…

Those Eyes

Damn those eyes, that with such innocence looked upon me without knowing how instantly they had captured my heart in their stare. Condemn those irises and their ever flowing green waters lined with oh so rich silt nourishing the pupils that lay behind. I should have known my heart would be stolen and caged behind…

In The Sands

Once in time a blooming lady I was you were the soil that made me grow that fed me the true experiences of life that took my innocence like taking breath and opened my mind. You reached me as an ocean current, strong and swift I was enveloped in you power, your controlling arms, drowned…

Arrogance

I believe to know exactly the type of person you are, Man of desirable beauty and strength. You are the great mountain by the sea, the grand waterfall by the forest. You stand tall on your own egotistic arrogance and false charm, leaving us to crawl at you feet begging like beasts for your attention….

Where The Gardenias Grow

When I was younger I dreamt of a special place. A place like no other, every night I dreamt it. It was a place full of happiness it was a place where I always found love. I remember closing my eyes and immediately feeling the coolness of the air and breathe and fill my lungs…

The Taste of Your Love

I can never forget you my love, your taste still lingers on my memory. I can only remember you my love, I taste your love in everything that is me. Your love tastes like snow flakes being tossed around by the cold winter air landing softly on my waiting tongue their crystals quickly merging their…

Fireflies

I lay outside in the chilly dark night in, outside of my home up in the mountains, the coolness of the night falls on me like an invisible fog. Up in the sky stars sparkle in contrast to the dark blanket behind them. Around me the light from the moon shimmers on the leaves of…

No Cure For a Broken Heart

It is very sad to see a heart fall in love. It is like watching a toddler crawl closer to the edge of a cliff; every tiny step inching him closer to the dangerous zone, closer to being swallowed by the abyss and lost forever. It is sad but I fear it even more. The…

Darkness

I am in a pit of darkness; nothing can be seen, no light reaches my eyes, my surroundings are unknown to me, I have been thrown into darkness by the situations around me. My eyes scream wanting to see, my corneas seem to want to jump out of my head, my pupils dilate to their…

Silently beautifully written

“In the middle of loving conversations, intricate thoughts make silently beautiful comments into the quiet listening ears that make the irises laugh.” Silently Beautiful, JSR When I first wrote this verse for my poem Silently Beautiful I was not thinking of what a deeper meaning those words can have. I think I was 17 when…

Goodbye

Goodbye, so long, farewell to all those who have carried my tears with them, to those who have shared with me their laughs and worries and to those who have taken my apologies, to all my friends who have kissed my heart. I am standing on the edge of a world that has injected its…
