I love you, I love you not

I love youI love you not

People say it when they aren’t actually even in love or know what it is.

When they finally do know what it is, it’s too late.

When you do find something or someone to love, you will care more than anything.

Sadly it comes in time. Believe me I know, I have tap danced first hand with love.

On the wrong foot it’s the most deadliest mountain, but in the right hands it’s the

most amazing thing you will ever experience.

The thing with love, it’s like death, you can’t hide from it, it finds all,

it’s just the matter of how you deal with it.

It Could Have Been

It Could Have Been:

When I looked into your beautiful green eyes, I just knew that might be the last time I could ever look again.
I could have touched your sweet lips, yet, I didn’t, though I knew that might have been my last chance.

I hugged you tightly with all the strength in my arms and heart.
I wasn’t giving up on you, just trying to let you go.
I wish that things had been different.
I still love you deeply and there isn’t a moment that goes by where I don’t think about you.

Yet, there could have been even more hurt, more pain,
because of an additional amount of love.
Enough love to make people go against the odds,
odds of which would have spoiled our hearts.

I was leaving and you were staying,
hundreds of miles away.
Too far to hear each others heart beats.
Knowing all that, still if I would have looked deeper into your eyes,
my eyes passing down to your lips.

Mind goes blank.
Eyes close slowly as my lips get closer to yours.
Lips touch for the first time.
Your eyes close and you kiss me back.
Our first and only kiss.

Feelings would have gotten stronger.
I would still never see you again.

It would have been the end of me.
Yet, I just hugged you one last time.
It could have been a falling kiss.

Cyanide Potion

Cyanide Potion

Sleepless nights– longing for you to be here with me, always unanswered.

Unsure of what really happened between us, if anything happened actually,

nothing at all comes to mind. You’re just looking for something not out there– that doesn’t exist.

You would have to break through rocks and the stones–
change thousands of tones,

wreck a dozen homes, allow only strangers to see your O’s, go through so many emotions—

you would have to swim to the bottom of the ocean to find what you’re looking for.

I exist– never choosing — You will side with the cyanide potion.

ooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo

Arts & Crafts

Melt me, melt me like the metals, form a special element,

not one that wears a helmet. Slap on some fresh paint;

make me the way you can take me not the way you want me.


Come have fun with me—tap in my spotlight.

This night will feel right. There’s trust and a feel to rush,

is this enough? Nothing about this is tough. Molded just right,

I’m your canvas paper.

Am I made to be framed or am I a balled up piece of loose leaf paper?

I’m your imagination brought to life, perfect incision with your sculpture knife;

take me don’t wait me before it’s too late,

this sculpture has an expiration date.

Officer Down

Posted in Dark Poetry with tags , , , , , , , , on May 6, 2009 by planetvegas

My head goes round and round as the oil pours out.

I’m not made in color, but a thick and rich grade.

My friends and I will spend years, months, & days
here in bloodshed until “Their” de
als are met.

I will die for my home but I know this is wrong.

My votes aren’t counted–some sorta delay.

Only way to change on this end is for you to follow your pledge,
but you won’t even plant a tree for me.

I guess I’m dead & wind energy is out of the question, you
say it’s a mess.
It’s funny with greenhouse gases you still say
gasoline is the best.
