Battle of Good and Evil

A poem close to my heart. Written based upon my experience in attempted suicide, that, thankfully, was stopped by the Good Lord. Hope you enjoy and take in the meaning behind the words. 


Battle of Good and Evil

In these times my heart sinks, my mind is filled with dread
Sorrow clouds all my thoughts; my lips can no longer smile
Tears pour down my anguished face as I see the pain of others
My gut is filled with knots and turns from my terrible angst
Trembling I hit the cold ground, weak from desperate sorrow
My feet and legs have lost all will to hold my heavy weight
Hands that no longer hold or grasp; arms that no longer lift
Helplessness fills my very being, unable to give aide
Screams fill my aching ears, my eardrums threatening to burst
Blood encompasses my nostrils, burning itself into my brain
Bitterness lights itself on my tongue, torturing my taste buds
Sourness rapes my mind, forcing its way into my memory
All hope seems lost, faith ebbs, disappearing like smoke
Darkness encompasses the very existence of humanity
Storm clouds fill the sky, swirling in bitter angry circles
The wind whips furiously, dust tears harshly at my face
Death is immanent, roaring like a black train in the night

But wait, all hope may not be lost, some may yet remain
Light bursts through the darkness, piercing the cloud’s heart
Thunder is silenced and lightning out shone by the sunlight
Cutting wind is calmed, replaced with a peaceful silence
The sourness in my memory, overthrown with joyful throngs
The bitterness on my tongue turns to a beautiful sweetness
Scents of flowers creeps into my nostrils, replacing the blood
Joyful cries burst through the screams, ears leaping for joy
Strength comes to my limbs as I push to my feet again
Hands grabbing my sword, arms lifting them high in the air
My gut now untangles its knots, jumping back to life again
Tears of joy rain down my face, glittering in the sun’s rays
A smile breaks my solemn lips, my heart pumping excitedly
We have been freed from our dreadful, painful sorrows
Hope is restored; victory is within our straining grasps
Victory means survival, survival is to live another day
To live another day, is to laugh in the face of immanent death

Got a new website for a combined space for my writing of novels and poems, as well as all of my photography. Looking forward to having everyone check it out and give my their thoughts.

Hoping this will be a convenient way for everyone to find my posts. And maybe buy a few pieces, as well as getting information they may need.

Babbling On Poem


A fun poem entry today for those starting summer holidays. And those with children complaining of boredom. The cure? Get them writing, reading, or heading outdoors!

Babbling On
What to do? What to write?
I want to write so bad it hurts
My head says yes, my hand agrees
My brain is overused and stressed
Losing interest, unfocused
The words just will not come
From my tired and overheated mind
My heart won’t guide my pen
For it is to preoccupied with love
How can I write
In such a state as this?
Guess I’ll just write nothing
Cause nothing’s coming to mind
You simply can’t write what isn’t there
I think I’ll just go to sleep
Cause I’m feeling
             So v
                       e
                          r
                               y
                                   
                                   t
                                                   i            
                                           r
                                             e
                                                 d

Zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz

Beautiful Love


Beautiful Love
Your beauty, your beauty, where to start?
You are like a beautiful sweet-smelling flower
One glance and I think I am in heaven
One look and I think I’ve seen an angel
Two looks and I know it must be true
We talk and all my troubles fade away
Our eyes meet and my heart races
You smile and I know I must be in love
We hug and I can’t stop thinking of forever
You say I love you and my world spins
If this is love, never let it stop
If this is a dream, I hope I never wake up
My head says dream on, but my heart says it’s real
Either way, I don’t care, as long as you are with me

Avalanche

Happy Canada Day post! What's more Canadian than snowy winters? Here is a short poem as a cool down for the summer heat. Enjoy!

Avalanche
An innocent looking hill
Turns deadly in one quick second
A heart-stopping rumble
An earth-shattering roar
The sound of death is heard
As the snow turns into a flash flood
Racing towards unsuspecting skiers
Looking up in horror, too late
Blinded, falling victim to the beast
The roaring lion
Has already eaten its prey

Ages of Love


A much brighter and more cheerful poem for today's entry. Hope you will all enjoy reading.

Ages of Love

To dream the dreams of a thousand years and fall in love as many have before me
The same story playing out time and time again, each time with a new twist
Each time the love is the same, yet each time the love is so very different
The love I feel, is the same love felt thousands of years before I discovered love
The same as that love the wandering nomad felt when in search of a mate
The same love desired by the noble knight, fighting for the appreciation of a fair lady
As the sailor, sailing home to see his fair maiden; who is awaiting his return
As the soldier, fighting to protect his wife and children from harms dreadful grasp
Love has connected all these ages, though thousands of years have gone by
As love has connected so many hearts, though the hearts are miles apart
Love strikes at the heart and soul of the world, knocking down all defenses
An unstoppable force that no one, nor anything can protect against or destroy
But something so beautiful and so divine as love, should not be obstructed
The look in their eyes, the smile on their faces, the tender touch of a loving hand
The passionate kiss and the delicate, loving embrace of protecting arms
What better dream can anyone hope for, then to dream of an unconditional love?
For thousands of years love has been dreamed of, by every heart and soul
Some find it; some do not, but those who do…                
               
                                                                  Set the stage for another thousand years
