Land of Promises

What is this vision before my eyes

That stretches from my point of view

Across the way 'neath smokey skies

And sits in wait as day renews

Where light falls upon grassy green

and delves the mind upon this river wide

Majestic freedom in this scene

 and rugged rocks where growth still climbs

Peaks, how they point to high above

where raining down in heavy mists

And I, yes I can feel the love

upon this land, God's promises

Amber colored dreams and breakfast in a bottle

I woke this morning to an empty bed and a familiar throbbing in my head. Dull pain behind Storm cloud eyes. 

 Just the dark silence of an empty room and the scent of you on my skin. Stale smoke and the faint smell of Cherry blossoms and sex. 

 I light Marlboro Red and I get the filter instead. I shake my head and crumple it in my fist. 

 

..."I'll never be what you need." I had lowered my eyes to meet her own. In some desperate, insane need to see the tears falling. 

 

***I cup your face within my hands and I kiss your lips. It's soft and for a moment I linger there. Your breath against my face and your eyes, careful to avoid my own. 

 "What I need is you?" 

Your lids close against the confusion of your eyes and your mouth turns slowly into a smile. I can feel you inhale and your body, as it relaxes against me, is familiar and warm. 

Shades of last night dance away into Amber colored dreams. The bourbon is warm and bites back against my tongue. It stings my throat and numbs my lips. Only for a moment before I pour myself another round. 

 Breakfast in a bottle, I think, just a couple more to numb the brain.

Chapter 34 of Of Love, Loss & Loneliness
Written by Cross in portal Poetry & Free Verse

Veins

I would rather remember you

As a coward.

A quitter.

A weakling.

You took the easy way out.

You surrendered.

Your white flag,

Stained red.

I would rather hate

Your bloodstained image

Than succumb

To despair.

You and me

Together in this battle

Until you left me

Behind.

DayDream

puffy blue raspberry clouds

alabaster painted dreams 

lilac lips pressed on the wishes of an wishing well 

crystallized moon 

softly painted pearls encased in the charcoal sky 

a blank canvas 

sunset painted avenues 

flowers enlaced 

in between 

the thread of emerald beads 

gold tinted crested 

sunshine 

specs 

dazzling 

diamonds 

pecked 

like 

kisses 

on the 

page 

sidewalk

chalked 

pastel 

faces

tinted 

with 

sideways 

smiles

lavender 

enveloped 

dreams 

blushed 

bosomed 

drops 

of 

paint 

blossoming 

into 

art 

cursive 

feelings 

turned 

into 

paintless 

words 

petty purples 

bashful blues 

raging roses 

giddy greens 

patient pink 

yearning yellow 

optimistic orange

easel dipped 

ideas 

swashed 

across 

the 

blank canvas of life

Here Without You

Twilight, and the ocean breaks

my bleeding heart once more.

Relentlessly the salty waves

crash hard, and rocks are worn.

I cry in rage and shake my fist.

Screaming aloud my bitter list,

          I cry in rage!

          I cry in rage,

the sea answers with surf and mist.

Twilight, and the ocean breaks

upon the rock-strewn shore;

now comes the dawn. My pain’s awake

and misery’s reborn.

Your tender heart and gentle kiss

are gone now, and I truly miss

          your tender heart…

          your tender heart

and all our special midnight trysts.

Twilight, and the ocean breaks

in never-ending score

of push and pull. My anger fades

as night gives way to morn.

Within my soul you still exist;

it helps me to remember this

          within my soul.

          Within my soul,

your heart and mine, forever twist.

(c) 2017 - dustygrein

**Note: This trijan refrain was created for @RichWithey's  challenge for the month of April -- but it called for literature, so I wrote a flash instead. This poem however, was one that I liked crafting, and felt it deserved to be shared as well.

Ill Have a Razo'r Whater please! and that is whater...with an 'h', punk.

Carnal x 2 and one upside down is Carnival man.

And you don’t have to go to Hawaii to eat ya some Spam.

Low bow, gremlin

Face’s illuminate the black

Squinting for blue

What once was squish

Is

Now click and clack

Glands pump, meter picks a pace

We wept for the rider

Pan back

Glide

And wait

You’re becoming strangely lupine

Oracles ubiquitous and straight

Starlight eroding in white

Smooth licentiousness

Like a psyche pill

‘Greed and disgust’

is all that I feel

and im rolling

your way

and

I’m kind of a big deal.

On kind of a big wheel

Cacophony of cries

So no body hears

Or you could say

No body feels….

On Krypton

Clark aint no big deal.

Write a poem using the words "remember" and "forget" at least once, with one at the beginning and one near the end.
Written by Reneequinn1127 in portal Poetry & Free Verse

Fallen

Don't forget

The winds are turbulent

At times

thermals raise

Your flight.

Dust devils detroy

The landing

Try to fly

Don't remember

Blue Skies Black Death

dark ends

oftentimes it feels 

as though I've failed

a multitude of ships 

horizons, gone, sailed

as here, in my struggle 

the twisting and bends

flounders in mazes built

of burning bridge ends

peripherally, all is see

are brash celebrations

success and perfection

'neath joy exclamations

i study scuffed shoes

reflected years refuse

undermine all of it

rust tint glasses muse

it's finite, I know that

yet all seems forever

how easy would it be

to float free 

                          untether

Written by apromptaday in portal Poetry & Free Verse

Rise & Fall

life was happier

and when we were together

the world was brighter

We both had demons

But our love was strong enough

To withstand the winds

Until it wasn't.

We began to fall apart

Broken and alone

Wasted Time

I wasted my time,

Trying to figure you out

But to my dismay

You found nothing to say.

I don’t know why

I thought that maybe I’d try

To talk to you soon

But that plan was doomed.

So I waited it out

Took small steps in the crowd

Hoped you would look back

Yet it wasn’t like that.

Oh why did I think

That maybe it’d work

If I just put in

More than it’s worth?

Don’t think twice

I made mistakes that aren’t nice

And I know I’ll keep trying

Though your presence is like ice.
