These are song lyrics, but they sum up my feelings pretty well at the moment:

I've had time to write a book
About the way you act and look
But I haven't got a paragraph
Words are always getting in my way
Anyway, I love you
That's all I have to tell you
That's all I've got to say

And now, I'd like to make a speech
About the love that touches each
But stumbling, I would make you laugh
I feel as though my tongue were made of clay
Anyway, I love you
That's all I have to tell you

I'm not a man of poetry
Music isn't one with me
It runs from me
It runs from me

And I tried to write a symphony
But I lost the melody
Alas I only finished half
And finish I suppose I never may
Anyway, I love you
That's all I have to tell you
That's all I've got to say
That's all I've got to say
That's all I've got to say

(From The Last Unicorn soundtrack, by America.)

Mother please understand that i love you. I'm NOT happy. You've hurt your children, all you do is critize us when all we're trying to do is love you. You want me to love you, i try but it's never enough. I try to talk to you, but you never listen to me. You've done nothing but hurt me emotionally. I've TIRED to forgive you, i just kept getting hurt. You wonder why i haven't talked to you. My siblings don't need this pain. I don't like seeing them like this. I get the feeling that you don't love me because i'm disabled, that hurts. Accept me for who i am. It's hard enough to have people look at me as if i don't belong. Stop being jealous, all that does is piss me off. You're my mother, you should know better. I've had it with you, i've done all i could for you. I will not tolrate your opinons of me. I'm gonna be better without you. I'm going to be me, LEARN TO ACCEPT THAT.

I really do love writing poems, reflections and even novels! :wub: My dream is to become an internationally famous writer :wink: ... I'm afraid to post my texts on the Internet because somenone could steal them and claim that he'd made them :sigh: ... I certainly wouldn't want this to happen as I intend to publish them all :D ... I hope I will succeed :) ... I strongly believe that Michael gives me all these wonderful ideas, he's my inspiration :wub: ... actually, sometimes I think I'm just an intermediary to his thoughts :D ...

This is one of my very first poems which I wrote 4 years ago (I was 12) :lol: ...

Things & Bodies
You're brave when you fear of nothing
You're afraid when you fear of something
You're careless when you don't care for anything
You're caring when you care for everything

You're alone when you love nobody
You're together when you love somebody
You're sophisticated when you aren't liked by anybody
You're simply you when you are liked by everybody

What do you think? :)

These lyrics, sung by Myles Kennedy in the band Alter Bridge (phenomenal band!) are dedicated to Michael (by me. I don't know who the song was originally written about, but it seems very appropriate to Michael also.)

Blackbird

The willow it weeps today
A breeze from the distance is calling your name
Unfurl your black wings and wait
Across the horizon it's coming to sweep you away
It's coming to sweep you away

[Chorus:]
Let the wind carry you home
Blackbird fly away
May you never be broken again

The fragile cannot endure
The wrecked and the jaded a place so impure
The static of this cruel world
Cause some birds to fly long before they've seen their day
Long before they've seen their day

[Chorus:]
Let the wind carry you home
Blackbird fly away
May you never be broken again

Beyond the suffering you've known
I hope you find your way
May you never be broken again

Ascend may you find no resistance
Know that you made such a difference
All you leave behind will live to the end
The cycle of suffering goes on
But memories of you stay strong
Someday I too will fly and find you again

[Chorus:]
Let the wind carry you home
Blackbird fly away
May you never be broken again

Beyond the suffering you've known
I hope you find your way
May you never be broken again
May you never be broken again

Here is a ballad that I wrote recently, in traditional form.

<style>@font-face { font-family: "Cambria"; }p.MsoNormal, li.MsoNormal, div.MsoNormal { margin: 0cm 0cm 0.0001pt; font-size: 12pt; font-family: "Times New Roman"; }div.Section1 { page: Section1; }</style> Imprisoned by Fame

The world records the day that he was born&#8212;
a child with talent far beyond his years.
Young Michael missed his youth, he watched forlorn,
as children played their games with claps and cheers.
Success made him the envy of his peers,
yet Michael longed for quite a different prize&#8212;
to make his childhood dreams materialise.
With voice divine he set young hearts aflame.
They mobbed him even when he wore disguise.
For life he was imprisoned by his fame.

The suff&#8217;rings of sick children he had borne,
identifying with their loss and tears.
To help them with his wealth and love he&#8217;d sworn,
yet media conveyed the news with sneers.
Retreating from their ridicule and jeers,
he built a home they could not scrutinise
where childhood hopes like Ferris Wheels could rise.
For eccentricities he gained acclaim.
His charity they did not advertise.
For life he was imprisoned by his fame.

Within those gates a lad, by cancer torn,
took refuge while he healed from pain and fears.
Resentful once his welcome had out-worn,
his mother&#8217;s greed and vengeance led to smears&#8212;
false witness whispered into willing ears.
And thus poor Michael met with his demise&#8212;
a family used him, set to demonise
this child-like, gentle man whose soul&#8217;s whole aim
was only to inspire and harmonise.
For life he was imprisoned by his fame.

In court a jury did not penalise,
though journalists took care to dramatise
the ruin of a man&#8217;s career and name.
It took his death for all to realise,
for life he was imprisoned by his fame.

And some times it dont matter for love and for grace

Some times i feel at the back of the human race*

Leave me alone*
Leave me alone*

I'm a stranger to you and your wonderful world of ideas and happiness. I stand on the outside, looking in, like the homeless at wintertime. I observe the warmth inside, and long more than anything to grasp it with my very own hands. I want to live like those who don't despise living on in a revolving Earth. I want to be your home, your shining thing, your all.

Yet it seems that the more I try, the further your heart drifts from me. The more I hold on, the more you slip away, like water dripping from a sorrowfully grasping hand. Like water, you are. Without definite form, yet essential to life. Silent, cold and beautiful is the water-bearer who embodies what he comes to carry.

Dear Aquarius, how I wish to swim in your waters. Never mind the danger, the possibility of drowning, for even that would prove most euphoric. You are a sea raging with quiet fortitude. Overpowering all that I am, all that I've ever been.

I can't defeat the ocean, I can't surpass Aquarius. I have come to love them both so dearly, despite the foolishness of it.

I hear a voice that's like the quiet breeze of an afternoon by the ocean. I tremble with delight at the sound, and I become so enchanted by it. I need you, Aquarius.

Blue-eyed Aquarius, so fair and wise, how I have come to admire you. How desperately I desire to break free from my prison and join you in a better world.

Yet, the reality remains ever so cold. I am a stranger to you, and we are worlds apart. I am a solitary planet revolving so far away from you, so far away from all that is wonderful in the world.

I cry at this very thought, for I am beautiful glass in a world of ice. Do not confuse us, for I feel, and I can break, and I have broken. I have cried.

I cry because I want, above all else, just to drown in your eyes. ~
--

Not exactly a poem, nor a reflection. I wrote this about three months ago, under circumstances which shall remain my own. I like the sincerity of it, however, so I am sharing it with you all. You figure what it's about, my beloved readers. ~.D.A.F. (?) Lol, no. Alas, it is not so. I am, quite simply, Mikage.

im tired and used but dont tell me bout it
im tired of you but dont tell me bout it
im about to break trough but dont tell me bout it

and im tired of all them arguments
seems like the word fight we re defining it
if u cant polish turd we shud be shining it
cos girl ya stink u behind my shit

now we slow it down

wouldnt let martin speak cos his skin was brown
would let anita speak cos they just wasnt down

but things gonna change this time around
cos the racial war is over
kkk they just fell over
this is my eneration
my roc nation

thanks for the invitation

Lisen (2011)(W.I.P.)

Your love is breaking my heart
havens now, where have I gone?
now cold blood tearing us apart
bruied black shades of blue, the origin, the start
A loss of control
a loss of Love
a break down of respect
Do you love the emotion?
Do you know what causes pain?
Taking the fall for the loss of life.

Here it comes,
feel it, embrace it, grasp it
Darkness crept forth
can you taste it?
can you see it?
Can't you listen?
Theres a loss of Love.
a Death of Life.

Proof of the truth once and again
panic stricken, black blood through my mind
heart rushing, raised voices, did I commit a sin?
Darkness, stinging, bruied, raw
hateful glares, tightened jaw,

Here it comes,
Feel it, embrace it, grasp it,
Darkness crept forth
Can you taste it?
Can you see it?
Can't you listen?
Theres a loss of love
A death of Life


Now the tangable doubt outloud
Why? Untruths unresolved from the past
Now here we've come, black coal, a deepened path
Don't seek revenge, belongs to angels
Raise me up,
delicacy of love
Dry the eyes,
rememberence of life


Here it comes,
Feel it, embrace it, grasp it,
Darkness crept forth
Can you taste it?
Can you see it?
Can't you listen?
Theres a loss of love
A death of Life

Happy is the one finding Love
Happy is the soul finding life
thought it would have began
but falseness rain from above
would have taken You as my wife
but now its destroyed my life,
Here it comes.. the darkness..
Close my eyes
Truth rises from fire, God the freeness.
Don't stop me.. Don't touch me
leave me be.. Let me love, let me breathe
x3
Here it comes,
Feel it, embrace it, grasp it,
Darkness crept forth
Can you taste it?
Can you see it?
Can't you listen?
Theres a loss of love
A death of Life
Just listen.....
(Whisper.

"Why live a life, that's painted with pity and sadness and strife?
Why live a dream, that's tainted with trouble, and less than it seems.
Why bother bothering?
Just for a poem and another sad song to sing.
Why live a lie?
Why live a lie?" ~Emilie Autumn.

I haven't visited this thread in months...

Just saw the above little poem.. Wow.. I'd totally relate to that mood some months ago and sometimes during certain instances..

.. Makes me think of one of my favorite poets both full of realism, wit and heart, Dorothy Parker, and of one of her many written testimonies of humble greatness (if that's even possible):


"A Dream Lies Dead"

A dream lies dead here. May you softly go
Before this place, and turn away your eyes,
Nor seek to know the look of that which dies
Importuning Life for life. Walk not in woe,
But, for a little, let your step be slow.
And, of your mercy, be not sweetly wise
With words of hope and Spring and tenderer skies.
A dream lies dead; and this all mourners know:

Whenever one drifted petal leaves the tree-
Though white of bloom as it had been before
And proudly waitful of fecundity-
One little loveliness can be no more;
And so must Beauty bow her imperfect head
Because a dream has joined the wistful dead!"

My faith in this world is a bottle of nothing. Still I fly, still I fall. Mad girl, can you believe what they've done to you? Wouldn't they stop, when you asked them to leave you alone.
In all your fairy tales, how did the Prince say he loved you? ?
