Doors to Your Heart


I wish that I could bear all pains for you,

                           but then some doors in your heart

                                                         would never be opened.

As the Light Fades

White doves flutter, dying words whisper
Silence becomes haunting and Angels Sing
A lone filtering light of soft glister
Casts fleeting shadows from a white dove's wing
This arrow of light pierces the dusk gray
On my knees, I shall pray for you, my love,
And touch the cold floor where your casket lay
Seeking unanswered questions, from above,
To find no comfort in your final breath.
Forgive me, As I taste this bitter wine
Release me, from a vow I once confessed,
By the shadow of your spirit, I'm blind

Poison drips from a bitter drink I've made,
Brings dark, Silent dark as the cold light fades.

WINTER WIDOW WORDPLAY



whimsical windswept whiteness 
wedding weekend wanderlust
willowy wonderland waltz
wrongfully weathered woe
wintry wishful whispers
wrestling woodland wintertide

welcome waxen wallflower
weeping wheezy widow
whimpering wholeheartedly
wrangling worthless worries
wanton wretched wrongdoing
wedged within wickedness

Sonnet 19

Cupid, why hast thou cursed me with thy bow?
Enchanting my desires and compliments
Unto a woman who seems not to show
The same affections of my hearts contents

Of vibrant colors I pick each a flower
Laying them by her doorsteps where I daze
I dream of her awake at sunlight hour
Kissing her image that my mind displays

Yet I am like the rain above her head
The way she runs away from showered gifts
I never knew inside my heart could shred
Heartbroken by her distant love that drifts

Only if thy arrow and bow had missed
My fate and love for her would not exist

She is forever beautifully broken

She’s a beautiful mess, a tumultuous sight, 
Red and blue ribbons fall down,
Over her dress, with a shimmering gleam, 
Dancing upon the green ground,

Imprinting a path of honest obscure, 
On the wet stones glowing with grey,
As these ribbons of love cover her ears, 
Taking her heartache away,

But her eyes are free, screaming the truth, 
The truth of those words all unsaid,
Her eyes tell the story of the pain that she walked, 
She walked while lying in bed,

She’s a conflicted story, she’s dug herself out, 
With a beautiful life to restart,
Hiding the butterflies buried deep down, 
The butterflies dead in her heart.

Essence Of Cinnamon Incense



Cinnamon memories catch my soul in snares

    as I trace in anguish the curve of your lips

      in a photo stained sepia with my tears;

a thousand words... spoken through my fingertips.

It's Already Too Late

  If you have to apologize, it's already too late  
What you've done is unfixable; don't think you're so great

  If you feel mere words can mend a broken heart
Then you've learned nothing, you fool, from its tearing apart

  if you've fired a person and want to make amends
Find him a new job; that's the right message to send

  If you've screamed at your kid, reduced him to tears
It'll take years to overcome what you've taught him to fear

  Whatever you've ruined, be it a life or a love
Can only be mended by Mercy from Above

Unhinged

I ate myself the other day
Unhinged my jaw and chomped away
No crumb was left after I dined
No limbs, or head, or crooked spine 
Each bite I took was bittersweet 
Laced with love and shamed defeat
I didn't even say goodbye 
To all I loved and held so high
My tummy rumbled, so then I ate
What was left of me,
That you didn't take

Study In Form I


Heavily broken our love is but a token,
from words left unspoken, you ruin me.
Your vow betoken my soul is now oaken,
as I'm left heartbroken, you don't seem to see.

My world has gone gray with these games that you play,
the price that I pay, as my mind fills with doubt.
You've lead me astray, but I can't stay away.
There's nothing more to say, so please, let me out.

In another life, maybe, you and me
could possibly be, but now the pain's ceaseless.
Just set me free and perhaps you will see,
worlds apart are we, yet, you leave me     ...speechless.

Innocence Of Youth



Acquiescing to love's defeat you subdue sad feelings within. For when passion's all but over anxieties slowly begin. Dominating reality bitter tears flow with brutal force. And wash away the promises that kept forever dreams on course. The hurt of betrayal hits you with the force of a speeding train. And you're left in a kind of trance oblivious to all but pain. Fueled by half-truths and deceit, happiness soon begins to ebb. And your now vulnerable heart falls victim to depression's web. Your soul's susceptible to lies when hope camouflages the truth. And salvaging remnants of trust, you discard innocence of youth. 7/4/2015

Red Light

have you ever felt like 
the flashing red light on the roof,
lonely as ever
visible at night, useless by day?

in sync with its partner next door
for a quick kiss over a few flashes only 
then arguing again and again 
night in, night out.

have you ever felt like 
the flashing red light on the roof,
not signaling a warning to keep away
but sending a call for compassion?

using the dark pauses in between 
to yell the same name 
over and over and over
into the emptiness of each night.

have you ever felt like
the flashing red light on the roof,
being your silent cry
only heard by your eternal love?

DRIFTING APART

I stared deeply into his dreamy deep blue eyes So full of passionate love, they could not disguise He’d call me his dove, I scarcely believed he was mine Safely wrapped in his loving arms, we’d gently entwine I’d succumb to his charms and be simply floating on air When our ruby lips met, green-eyed girls would stare Forever his girl - I mustn’t forget, but it was not true When I met his mother, all my dreams fell through Told me there was another, this made me oh so sad His true love lay with the sea, as it did his late dad He never truly loved me, now we are both set free 01~30~15 Contest Interlocking Rhyme – Isaiah Zerbst ~awarded 2nd place~

My Black

My black bleeds the same color red
My black breaths the same air
My black causes death instead
Of life.
My black should live loud and free
My black is me. 
My black loves you
My black loves are true.
My black served the same country
Pride.
My black is set aside
Like last nights trash
Yet I ask, does your color
Mean right, and my black
Mean wrong?
What a sad black song.

When He Breathes

Soft, still, the silence heaves
I inhale, the Spirit breathes;
Flowing, growing Christ bestowing
Life and strength surpassing knowing.

Scented, soothing, respiration
Taking in His inspiration;
Filling, feeling Christ exalted
Love and Grace supremely vaulted.

Sure, secure the Spirit wind
Where flows the Sovereign;
God revealing Christ resplendent
Hope and purpose codependent.

When He breathes upon the morn
Hope has dawned and life is born;
He my all in all shall be
From now unto eternity.

a second thought

You buy her a rose.
Make your way downtown only to find out through a text she wants to see other people.
You go to throw away your rose......but before you do, it hits you.
The flower is no less beautiful.
It smells just as heavenly.
The world still turns and you notice all the eyes on you and your beautiful flower....
What a lucky girl she must be they think.
What a lucky guy I am I think. 
To hold such a elegant flower.
He leaves it on the train seat and leaves.

In My Brokenness

In My Brokenness

It is in my brokenness that I seek
Your face Lord as never before,
it is in my brokenness that I find You 
as I open every door in my life to You as never before.

It is through my pain that I see my God that
You allow things to happen in my life not to hurt me,
but You allow them in my life
to bring me to my knees.

And when I call upon You and Your answer comes
and You hold me now so close,
it’s in my brokenness my Wonderful Lord
that You reveal to me Your personage and love for me  the most.

No More Masks

No More Masks  (Nothing to do with the contest)


I had no idea, when we met in the park
that you'd draw a heart in the air
and I pulled on a rope, in having the hope
Of somehow drawing you near
But I couldn't talk, while trapped in a box
As I saw you walking in place
Now how can I find
The love, that was mime
For I can't remember your face

Through The Mist

Through the Mist
It feels like a lifetime has passed since my beloved I last saw, Bedecked in shining armor, my brave Geoffrey did gallantly gallop, Riding his silver steed, through a soft silky blue morning mist That like a tender lover enveloped and amorously embraced him.
Now overtaken by dark despair, silently willing my love to reappear, Despondently I peer through this most mystifying mist, realizing that On this fateful day twenty years before, he had unwittingly succumbed To its seductive allure because man and mist had merged becoming one.

I have got to go

For the piles of promises that were broken
And the avalanche of lies that were spoken

I have got to go, you know I've got to go

I have got to leave the lock of your arms
And escape from the spell of your charms

I have got to go, you know I've got to go

What we had was sweet while it lasted
But now it looks like our time was wasted

I have got to go, you know I've got to go

Lord, I've Been Hurting

		
	
Lord., I've Been Hurting!

This one thing I am
 most certain…
Lately I’ve been really hurtin’.

I trying to do right, but it 
turns out “wrong.”
Where, in life,
do I really belong?

So many people
 pass me by.
Sometimes, someone
may say;  “hi!”

I don’t know if this message is
 getting across?
I feel so confused and 
completely lost.

A message of “help” has my
 prayer and plea…
For God to reach out to me!

He reached down and
made me whole!
HIS love and compassion
 filled my soul!

Spending time with Jesus
 is time well spent!
It was for you and me that 
Jesus was sent!

No Proper Goodbye

 There was no closure of a proper goodbye. 
 I tried, but... 
 no reply. 

 Your body became limp and cold as 
 a corpse. 
 We froze alone 
 in different time warps. 

 My ambiguous stutters 
 wouldn't disappear. 
 They pinched as they burrowed 
 like earwigs in each ear. 

 My mouth opened slowly 
 to suck the words back in. 
 Then the dead revived 
 and embraced my skin. 

 My heart bloomed in profusion
 like first love's lilac. 
 With lips on lips 
 you took my words back.

Just Forget Me

Just forget me,
and walk away,
It wasn't meant to be,
So why try to stay.

Don't look at me,
When you walk by,
You don't want to see,
If I start to cry.

If you like her,
Then leave me alone,
Yet, here you were,
Talking on my phone.

What is it you miss,
Do you remember when,
I can't take this,
Never see me again.

When you do go,
Just take my heart,
Do I need it, no,
You tore it apart.

You go your way,
And I'll go mine,
Don't worry today,
Because I'll be fine.

TOGETHER AT LAST

A thousand sunset nights
Dark shadows on the ground
Can't drown out the light
When you were around
Your voice from back then
Still whispers in my ear 
Girl, you in my sweatshirt 
The thought brings a tear
And though we're far away
In my heart you are here
I'm still praying for the day
That the sun will reappear
Something in this night sky
Tells me the storm will pass
Your almond eyes come home
Sweet girl, together at last

~Lyric Man

Note: This is a sad love write. A thousand nights can't heal the hurt or steal his hope. He can still see her as if those almond eyes had almost never left.
