Hot chocolate goes good with Ying and Yang



Pain grips my chest.
My breaths are sharp,
and my sobs heavy.

As a guitar strums out the opening chords
to a song memorized with blood and tears.
I’m looking for a way out,
but all these secret passages are sealed up,
and my mental escape routes
just aren’t coming tonight.

Worry grabs at my feeble mind.
Who’s fighting the battle with just one arm,
and the blindness of an eye.
My mind knows when to surrender,
and that time is now.

The song’s filling my ears.
Reminding me of the people
who hold my heart, soul, and mind
in their very hands.

Over and over again.
Making me wonder
how a simple song,
something no more then notes,
beats,
and melodies,
blending to make one beautiful sound,
can cause such fear, hurt
love, compassion,
hate and admiration
all wrapped into one.

Tears stream down my face
eardrums pounding to the singer’s voice
as my fingers unwillingly tap out a beat.
My mind is merely a hostage to these images,
images that I don’t want.

’I want to forget!’
I silently scream.
Let me forget.
These people,
these places,
these memories.
I don’t want them.
Let me forget.

But it’s a pointless fight.
I know it,
and eventually my weary mind stops fighting,
allowing the song to truly fill me.
And the memories that come with it.

It’s the strangest sensation,
of drinking hot chocolate
while being dumped in ice water.


Happy and sad all at once,
good with evil,
love with hate.
Words
that without an opposite,
would mean nothing at all.
The true beauty,

of Ying and Yang

* poems and stuff*
let me drink from this glass
rimmed with sugar and your tears                           
i will be the one to stand my ground
when the smoke around you clears-------------------> my favorite stanza<--------

sweet and salty
your smile and the
rainstorm in your eyes
come lay with me, my little one
and please don't be surprised

when i'm still here in the morning
as you throw the covers off the bed
from nightmares bouncing off the walls
from the darkness in your head

but i'm not afraid of your darkness
don't pull away like that
you've just never had anyone to love you
so you're like a cautious cat

you look at me with narrowed eyes
but i hear the purring from deep inside
let me show that i'm for real
that you don't ever have to hide
******************
The fiery light...that's how their hope dies...

do stars break like 5-pointed promises 
 when they hit the ground?
does their light leave a legacy?...
do they try, in vain,  to climb their radiant rope?       
(back up to the sky...)
 i think that now i clearly see...
 
that the stars aren't mystical
they're as vulnerable as you and i
when we soar to the heavens, they rejoice
when we can't find our wings, they cry

they spell out your name
and hold me close
like a million warm blankets
you can take all orders
and place all bets

that'll i'll come out of this alright
with my head somewhat on my shoulders
a little disheveled, but none too faithless
memories of your kiss, like the resilient girls who belong to their soldiers

***********
There's a string up in the sky
and it weaves through all the stars
 it's strong and intricately wove
it even wraps around jupiter and mars

  you tugged at it
    the whole time you were saying goodbye
     and in the chaos of cascading light
   you didn't hear me cry

 It was on the news
"Girl Breaks Heart. Sky Goes Missing."
  The Wolf stopped it's song
  The couples stopped kissing...

    so give it back 
     i'm not the only one who misses it
 without you, my eyes are always blurry
without you, my darkness is unlit....

not so much emo, just cute :-D hehe

blank pages
gotta fill it up
dead end thoughts
and a hot cup

of cocoa
to keep me away
rescue me from writer's block
make it a peice of cake

i swear i won't procrastintate
just give me some inspiration
throw in some great ideas
and while you're at it, some concentration

until then, the page stays blank
and the blinking cursor blinks
the deadline looms ominously
this really, really stinks.



Current Mood: tired

Hey~ everyone
i carry your heart with me(i carry it in
my heart)i am never without it(anywhere
i go you go,my dear; and whatever is done
by only me is your doing,my darling)
                                    i fear
no fate(for you are my fate,my sweet)i want
no world(for beautiful you are my world,my true)
and it's you are whatever a moon has always meant
and whatever a sun will always sing is you

here is the deepest secret nobody knows
(here is the root of the root and the bud of the bud
and the sky of the sky of a tree called life;which grows
higher than the soul can hope or mind can hide)
and this is the wonder that's keeping the stars apart

i carry your heart(i carry it in my heart)



***okay. e.e. cummings gets 10 day for this line :::  and this is the wonder that is keeping the stars apart
                                                                           i carry your heart ( i carry it in your heart)

and also for...
 * it may not always be so*
it may not always be so; and i say
that if your lips, which i have loved, should touch
another's, and your dear strong fingers clutch
his heart, as mine in time not far away;
if on another's face your sweet hair lay
in such silence as i know, or such
great writhing words as, uttering overmuch,
stand helplessly before the spirit at bay;

if this should be, i say if this should be--
you of my heart, send me a little word;
that i may go unto him, and take his hands,
saying, Accept all happiness from me.
Then shall i turn my face and hear one bird
sing terribly afar in the lost lands

**particularly the italicized :-D*

I'm having a really hard time right now, and at this point, i should be used to it...but stuff like this ( livejournal, support groups) keep me going. it's so easy to just curl up in a ball and cry...and sometimes i need to cry; but the curling up in a ball part is kinda addicting. i don't get anything accomplished when i feel like this...but here i am, trying to do homework at least....

*by me*...
* Title:Tell Me I'm Wrong*

like a spotlight
your chances come and go
but take a breath and hold on tight------------> woo. inspirational =)
cuz this is your only show


like a siren
this darkness screams your name
emergency, call 911
nothin will ever be the same

you'll find yourself in question
down upon your knees
like someone broken up inside
you'll beg them sweetly 'please'

to end it already
and take you for their own
your soul is dying
you have no home

but when your curtain falls
and your left, willing the roses not to die
i will kiss you soft
and i will hear your cry

in my arms you shall find comfort
in my sky, the stars spell out your dreams
i'm one of those few you find in life
that everything is as it seems

when you hear the siren
i'll make you understand
that it's not screaming at you, it's crying for you
and then you'll take my hand

you might find yourself in question
but i'll help you off your knees
i'll peice you back together
no obligations or annual fees

you're not gonna end it ( our life has just begun)
your heart is mine alone
i'll bury you inside of me
you heart has found a home....

*pondering...*
When you cut yourself, the blood always stops flowing before the tears do.
Leave it to your heart to wanna make you stop hurting, and your eyes not to give a damn.

ok i know i just posted ten minutes ago BUT i wanted to post one more of my poems and a poem of a fried


mine:

'Perect stranger'

When walking home today I stopped
Falling to my knees I wept
For all my friends and all my fears

I heard footsteps
And felt a comforting arm around me
Still crying I look up to see a stranger
No older then myself
Gently she guides me to a bench where we can sit

Patiently she sits and listens
As I pour out all my fears, and problems
And wholes me as I cry
For all I know is gone

Not one word came out of her mouth
Yet she saved me all the same
When I’ve poured out all my fears
She gives me a hug
Leaving before I can utter a word of thanks

Who needs an angel
When a stranger can save you?
How many would be so kind when it’s so easy
To just keep walking
Averting your eyes,
Pretending not to see
Apparently the perfect stranger.
And thankfully that’s all it takes


friends:

one way lane, traffic jams stall
rushed youth lifts their eyelids,
to peer out their crystal windows,
still foamy from modern redemption
the simplest things total up to,
a soldier's only soulful wish,
solo harmony.

a blind young world steps out,
to finally gaze in awe of nature,
and how imperfections are the most
poetic of all.
we've just begun to learn
the grace of a fearless gasp.

parked cars in downtown,
as a vernal generation
leaves their schedules behind.

(tear down the streetlight,
we're stargazing tonight)
[best line in my opion ^]

this'll be a reunion,
with chalk blurs and seesaws,
and all the life models
of childhood.

and what they mean to us
(now)

dear radio static,
the crescent will overpower you tonight,
all the silence it creates

(we're just one more
in the milky way)

i think we could all use a blackout.

The Man is an Emo-Genius...
I had a feeling I was being born
Inside your world where my heart could never be more~ Joseph Arthur:  "Wasted"

^definitely felt this way with kel

Now you're gone, and I don't know why
You removed yourself in the blink of an eye
When the seasons change, all you can do is cry
Now you're gone, and I don't know why ~ Joseph Arthur "Failed"

could it be anymore true????

Now I'm too gone to fight
Not afraid to fall ~ "A smile That Explodes

oh, the obvious nature of things....

Driving in your car
I never never want to go home
Because I haven't got one
Anymore~ Joseph Arthur " There Is A Light That Never Goes Out"

^ wow. i never thought of it that way before...so true...

I'll be silent in my solitude
Can't find my smile or my gratitude
I'm afraid of what I might do
'Cause there's no me 
If there's no me and you~ Joseph Arthur "Ashes"

such a truthful sentiment...

 can tell that you don't think I'm worthless 
I wish i could think the way you do.~ Joseph Arthur "Blue Lips
