Wounds of My Past

Deep pains that I thought would never pass

Scars of my youth I tried to stay hidden

Running from what I thought was so wrong

Hiding within a mask wishing I would never be found

All these traumas and bruises of what I believed not right

Kept me from you and out of the light

For years I hid from you what was hidden in my head

I thought I was a monster who should have been dead

You came to me with only your tenderness

I hid from you in the wilderness

Then a day came where it all began to crack

Letting my guard down I came out of the black

Opening up to you about my pains and my past

I thought you would flee

But instead you stayed with me

Freedom I found that day not long ago

Breaking these chains from my that which held me low

With that freedom came a love I had denied

It flowed from me like river run wild

My scars and pains laid bare

A love I have for you is eternal I swear

Love Turned Cold

A tale of a torrid love affair
Of flames burning high into the sky
The intensity like heat blasting like a furnace
Like a wildfire scorching across the land
A supernova burning hot in the night
Over time that love did wane
To smoldering embers of their love burning out
Nothing but hot coals of what was left of their heated love affair
Slowly burning until nothing was left but ash
Ashes of the remains of their torrid heated love turned cold
The foundations of what was meant to last forever
Now a ruin forgotten in time

Believe it or not the idea for this poem came to me while watching The Avengers: Infinity War.  LOL

A blanket, soft and warm, with the faintest hint of her perfume.

Within a moment in time
Feeling the miles that separate us
Fleeting pictures of you in my mind
Wishing for the time to go by
The thought of your touch
A dream of your kiss
Looking upon the face of my angel
Your voice calling out my name in passion
So many images run through my head
As I wrap myself on this cold winter night
Dreaming the dream that is my one true love
To be back in your arms
For the rest of our days
All these thoughts of you run through my soul
As I sit here under a blanket, soft and warm, with the faintest hint of her perfume
Swirling in my head.

Captivating Confines

Lost in a world of make believe

A mind of wonder and illusion

Places we have yet to perceive

Hides his wonders in seclusion

 

Amazing creatures of every kind

Colors that dazzle the eye

Things you would never find

Maybe they have them in Shanghai

 

His mind delves in to the unknown

Worlds of undiscovered amazement

Often it seems like a danger zone

Such an anticipated engagement

 

Such a place of fascination

All wrapped up within his mind

Written in his narration

Within the walls of his captivating confines

Lipstick Lover

A slight tinge of red so dizzies my head
Maybe that purple passion is what’s in fashion
That fluorescent color of green is not my scene
A dark hue of burgundy would be my candy
An alluring hot pink I think
A deep lush brown for out on the town
That cherry red would look hot while we are in bed
Satiny smooth would hit the right groove
Midnight blue could be my cue
So many colors to choose
That would put us in the mood
Your lips are what I choose to discover
You are my sultry lipstick lover

Ogre Orange

Treats are so neat

Even monsters think they can’t be beat

What kind of flavors do they adore

Or should I say abhor

But believe it or not

I heard this from a ghoul made of snot

The flavor they crave the most

Was told to me by a ghost

It’s a flavor of Ice Cream

It makes the monsters scream

The flavor they seek

Sounds unique

An Ogre Orange Cone

They consume by a gravestone

The Trolls of Twilight

Beware the night
When the moon is at full light
The fog rolls across the marsh
A chill in the bones so harsh
It can bring a shiver up your spine
What lurks in the shadow’s blind
You can hear the whisper in the trees
A sound that will make you freeze
What can be moving within those woods
Something you dread moving into your neighborhood
They will frighten you at first sight
The trolls of twilight

Worrisome Wailings

Through the walls
And down the halls
The only sound that was heard
Was the moaning and the groaning
What could make such a sound
Was it pleasure or was it pain
Always at night
When the moon was bright
The worrisome wailings
Left my courage failing
What could it be
Should I go see
Well maybe I will wait until first light
So, I don’t die from fright

Purple Plasma

Out in the far reaches of space
Lived a most peculiar race
A creature like nothing ever seen
Was it scary, some would say so
It was one eyed, one horn a flying being
With a mouth like a bottomless hole
As it walked around
It left a purple plasma on the ground
Such a strange sight to behold
Until it would eat you up whole

Woodland White

Upon the forest deep
Where the mountain becomes steep
A place where few attempts to go
Nature puts on its show
Trees so thick all around
You can barely hear a sound
Sunlight hidden away
When the wind blows all the trees together sway
Animals lurk upon the silent landscape
The darkness below cannot escape
Until that time the winds do change
A chill in the air does hang
Snow begins to fill its sight
Turning it all a woodland white.
