poetry collider

She is lost
and yet she continues to leave breadcrumbs
comfortable in the hum-drum, if only for the moment
with the day almost done
she gazes at the world outside
she doesnt run, its safer inside
riding the lines of her life
waiting for superman, in the night
the excitement, the adventure, is someone there?
listening and waiting, she touches her hair
she is leaving
she is searching for a home of her own
feels she is going it alone
waiting and watching, as the days are gone
she is here
within my reach, within my grasp
running in the river
surely not to come in last

072805 -lisa
uncertain is the space
human being is the place
the stars in her eyes i do trace
gentle waters in which we bathe
let the past fall, let the past fade
into your life, i will wade
and test the waters, so clear and blue
till the stars fall down, our love will do
all the dreams and anticipation
yet we are already in, our destination
and as i rest and ponder
i dream of you, and wonder...

072805 - For Alberto
You deserve a getaway, to experience the far away,
of sun and sand, and oceans blue
of time and space, and places new.
Friends so dear and close to heart,
in this life, do take part
and enjoy what there is to see and do
a good time to be had by me and you

overnight - June2005
2 worlds collide
human beings
midnight embrace
gentle whispers on our breath
the warmth of the closeness of you

i would like to be more than ordinary
inspire the weak to be strong
another human am i
i wish i could fly

Lisa - June2005
I met someone
truly someone new
smiles, bright eyes and kisses too

a guitar, some wine, and she sings
thoughts, butterflies and daydreams

I met someone
that someone is you


here we are,
caught up, trivial, meaning nothing,
oblivious to it all
and thinking we have a grip.
reality comes full, less often than we know
playing the game

take time,
think, understand, let go
converse, gather and begin
the changes that are needed so
children at heart and mind

Just your hand on the screen, near me
searching, pointing, looking for something
is beautiful.
I wrap myself in it.
I memorize the imagery, the feeling
You were here
near me

times will change
and plants will grow
the sky doesnt fall
the chinese know

for thru the years
the feeling - the same
you reap what you sow
and you cant hide from shame

she stands in silence
a beauty all alone
the night is young
and choice is hers
will the night yield her strength?
she takes pleasure in the small caress
that she loses in her subconscious
bright eyes and moist lips
she craves her surprise

soft and delicate
she waits with patience
for a lifetime
the night drifts by
as she clutches her love
so unsure of tomorrow
and not prepared for today
she aches for togetherness
she sits as attention is his
she waits

lost is he
as he travels thru time
and licks his wounds from within
cheers and crys
all his to share
he loses his problems
in the vision of today
smiles are his
but only for a moment
on tv

she inhales her passion
but there is none to be found (not with the naked eye)
so much waiting in her life
as she sits calmly in the pond
dreaming of the frog
that will kiss her lips
and become her happiness

Love hides
in every corner, crack and crevice
to spill onto you
slow down, you move too fast
but life is short
or so they say
the sitcom is yours to live
smiles inside, as passion flows
and hides

Complacency is mine
as the night craves excitement
and i sit in the shadows
comfortable and warm
sturdy in my seat
the bar my home
nocturne is done

A constant craving for being with you
I ache for love, but what I need is patience.
I am infatuated by you.

Trying to find my way back home
The mystery outside alone
The struggle within
Looking, searching, dont know where I've been
No time left
Nothing left to see
Run to the ocean, come with me
Seek the silence
Find solace

The feelings that live, breath and pulse. The feelings that fly or are fleeting. Togetherness is all around us, its what we crave, its what we need. A need, want, or feeling to belong – somehow, some way.

052400 (peace of mind)
I feel no pain
I let go and drink the rain

I dream of love
I see the stars and make wishes for tomorrow

I pray and sometimes say
I dream of lives and a better day

All these dreams and days gone by
Laughter and love that brings tears to my eyes
Life to live and love to give

I feel no pain
I feel the strain
as I learn to let go

woke up this morning
more tired than when I went to bed
too much dreaming
dreams in my head

life to dance
life to play
do not waste
don’t throw away
happiness tomorrow
a smile today

she hurts
she aches inside
she stops
she wonders why

the blame comes naturally
some may say the blind can see
and some people don’t
some people don’t really want to

I have thought it
I have known it
I can see it
but I don’t want to believe it

to hear her say it
makes me hate it
makes me question me
some people don’t really want to see
