Love Is Blind

I knew we weren’t meant to be
I knew we wouldn’t last long
I knew you weren’t the one
But I hope I was wrong
I don’t believe in such thing as love in first sight
because I fell in love with your smile every day

An hour felt like a minute
when I was with you
I wished I could stop the time
and just stay by your side
I miss your hugs, kisses and your smell…

I now live in the past memories
first thing I do when I wake up is to think of you
Yes I’m trying
I’m trying to forget you
I sit and start thinking of all the things
I hate about you and why I love you
In the end I realize there’s nothing
I hate about you and I have to love you to live

My mind is always occupied by thoughts of you
You’re so deep in me
I can’t take off my mind of you
people say love is blind
but why can I still see you?

The $20 Cash Prize Winner Is..

If you didn’t notice, I reset the Poetry Fan Prize Fund a couple of weeks ago. When that happens, I award the $20 that has been raised for the fund to a poetry fan that has helped judge the poems featured for the annual poetry contest. I wish I could give everyone who helps judge the contest a cash prize but, I’m not a millionaire yet LOL.

Without further ado, the winner of the $20 Poetry Fan Prize Fund is..

Estela Canama from Laguna, Philippines.

Congratulations Estela and thanks again for your participation!

Come Alive At Moonlight

The nocturnal girl inside bleeds out
With that my darkened mind opens
My claws come out and I am Cat Woman
Hot-topic is my outside appearance
Gothic is the words written down by my hand
Black leather defines me
Always up and wide-eyed
Night owl comes alive
Dark poetry runs in my blood
Edgar Allan Poe whispers inspiration
Moon shines in my eyes making us one
There is the dark glint glittering in my eyes
Black sharpie covers my skin
Depression is my drive
Grey clouds roll and rage in my chest
A blank expression displayed
I don’t care attitude is always there
My inner villain fights to be free
Raging fire burns my insides
There is a dragon living in my heart
Nightlife is how I live
Almost like I’m soulless
Music is what keeps me here
I break every rule with no regret
My hand slips and thick black ink flows down my page
Stained forever, drenched in black
Blank start available
Light is near to clear the darkness

Come Close

Let me canvas these words
And infuse them with a scent
A scent of apples and cinnamon
And a hint of honeydew
Then we’ll make it abstract use nouns, similes
And our precious metaphors
Endless analogies, Like sprinkles on the cake
Or the icing should I say
Let them roam your mind,
Allow your body to sway,
To the wind and melody
Come with me tonight
An alluring scent
With a mysterious descent

Poetry

It’s a strange thing
Direct and to the point
Or not at all
It reminds one of ghost towns
Or maybe, a forgotten fort
All around the battles rage
Or dead silence hums
Men long gone come again
And the women of their dreams
It shouts with life
And echoes of more
Bearing specters
That no one sees
Meaning poetry of the heart
Is crossed
With every view

Father

Why have you left me alone, father?
I am your child.
I feel the neglect, I feel it down to the bone.
Your affection is so mild.
You have a heart of stone,
I know that so.
Why do you put me so low?
I have done nothing but to make you proud.
But your hate screams loud.
Why do you love them?
And not me.
It is a hem unwinding.
It is your mind setting free.
Do you remember when you were dying?
I was there.
Now I’m dying,

and you aren’t here.

The Nightmare

It’s all with magic
The magic of our love
Keeps me safe and warm
All through the night
I toss and turn
Searching for you
When I awake
It’s to the sound of my screams
I cry for you
I need you
I need you
Oh, I really need you
The stars in the night sky
Shine so bright with a light guiding me to you
I love you and that’ll never change
I may gain another age to my life, but I will always be right here waiting for you
This magic continues just for you
As the candles burn, the clock hand turns
The sound of my stereo in the background is singing our song
Its on repeat all night long
I am weeping on bended knees
I pray for you, I live for you, I breathe for you, I would go to the end of the world for you
So, I cry for you, I need you, Ineed you
Oh, I really need you
That sweet moment of bliss, our very first kiss you layed your lips upon my lips and we sailed away
Away from this place, together we run this race
Accepting our fates and running through the gates of paradise
We share this joy, winning the race was just one test
A test of fate, we won the race and next we crawl through all the good times and the bad times
I know it’ll be alright
I’d crawl all night to just hold you tight because I cry out for you
I need you, I need you
Oh, I really need you
Baby, why do I cry out for you, why do I need you
Oh, why do I need you this much
Baby, I cry out for you, I need you, I need you
Baby, I love you so much the magic becomes my nightmare.

Summer Has It’s Reasons

Out of all of the seasons, summer is the best.
Laying around the pool, taking it easy, getting some rest.
I love it when the family come and join in the fun.
Lots of sun tan lotion needed, don’t want to be burnt, by that silly sun.
Than the barbecue , the smell of burgers cooking, can’t wait to eat.
Food always tastes so much better cooked that way, especially the meat.
Off to my gardens, love digging in the dirt, plants everywhere.
I put a lot of love into it, my roses especially, need a lot of care.
Than the fashion of amazing clothes we all get to wear.
We even get away with just a pony tale in our long hair.
My husband and I later at night sit and relax and talk.
A coffee in one hand, thinking tomorrow, we might take a walk.
Than we will be leaving in a couple of weeks or two.
Heading down to visit family who live by the lake, so we will be taking our canoe.
I think that summer is the best time to get the most amazing pictures you can find.
My camera is always busy, shot after shot, the family doesn’t mind.
Oh the beautiful weddings, the bride all dressed in white.
The flowers all just blooming, such a beautiful sight.
I think that I truly like summer more than the other seasons.
You have more time with others, so for that I think it truly has its reasons.
