ok. Theres this person, and shes kind of away from me now... so this is the way I feel.

I havent the strength to look up at the stars
but I can still imagine the blue - t h e w h i t e w h i s p s
that calm them deep into oblivion
I can`t look, for her disaster is too close...

Deep into her eyes, grey...
Darkest Red, not a death to be seen
a mark on her neck
a bead in her hair

In the end I have won
but ive lost her...
in the end i made it... and shes still so far
I can finally see all of the stars...

Sleep - you
Dream - you
Guilt - you
love? - you
Miss - you

You are the deepest wound
that I have ever had
and ive lost the most blood
Its over Its over

This really isn't a poem. It's a song I wrote under my pseudonym Tragick the Clown.

Firefly
by Tragick the Clown

Every night in the sky I look for your light.
I search every star to see your face.
I remember the time when we shared our lives.
You used to lay by my side but you left me to fly.

And if I never walk by your side,
And if I never look into your eyes,
And if I know you won't be mine,
You're still my firefly.

I see you hold his hand. I hear you call his name.
You know I love you and I know you love me.
You're my best friend and you will always be.
You're still in my heart as I watch you fly.

And if I never walk by your side,
And if I never look into your eyes,
And if I know you won't be mine,
You're still my firefly.

If you're gonna fly...
If you're gonna fly...
Fly high for me.
Fly high for me.

And if I never walk by your side,
And if I never look into your eyes,
And if I know you won't be mine,
You're still my firefly.

And if I never walk by your side,
And if I never look into your eyes,
And if I know you won't be mine,
You're still my firefly.
Dreams On Hiatus
Here are two, and they kinda suck, but oh well.

Sorrow

She sings forever
a song of such great sorrow;
Her heart is broken
And she can tell no one.

Her voice is carried on the breeze;
Undulating, then obscured;
She smiles on the others
To keep the sun shining,
But in her heart it rains,
Almost drowning her
Almost...


Praise to the Sea

Sweet dreams and silver sand
Wash upon the glittering shore
Blue waves crawl forward, and then pull away
Back to the sea
Rocking me back and forth

Beneath the glimmering surface
Is a world of simpler things
Colored fish and ancient homes
to ancient creatures
All so precious
All so mysterious

Life is kept safe here
A haven for the ponderer
The world beneath the Blue
is graceful, unrefined, and magical.

I loved that. That was really really good. *sniffle* It makes me want to cry! Wonderful job. biggrin.gif

Thanks. It's about an exgirlfriend of mine. I called her my firefly, hence the name.

Sword
Take a sword to my heart
And drive it all the way though
Take me away to heaven,
Bring me to something new
If death is the only release to this,
Then let it be
Though what if I find nothingness
For an eternity
Clutching at life,
Looking for one last grip
Trying to mend where my sould has ripped
Lost never to be found,
For the rest of this lie
Lost never to be found,
Waiting to die

Loss
I've been at a loss for words
Not knowing quite what to say
Trying to go on living
Living day by day

I'm at more than just a loss for words
My soul is lost as well
I open these tear ridden eyes
And look around this hell

Everything holds a memory
A sharp shooting pain
I don't want to stay here
There's nothing else to gain

The sharp shattered edges
In this world that was once a dream
Now cut my body and my skin
Making me scream

I am lying broken on the floor
Naked and shattered and torn
I have become victim of your vengeance
Victim of your scorn

Lying broken on the floor
Left here in solitude
I gave you my innocence
And this is your gratitude

Hands
Hands of lovers
Hands of friends
Hands of God
Whom has no end

The reign of freedom
Shows across the earth
In a sun marked sky
That gives new birth

Eyes of lovers
Eyes of friends
Eyes of God
Who sees the end

Eyes to see the world
In a new way
Hands to embrace
Hands to pray

And hearts to love
And tears to cry
Up in heaven's
Star streaked sky

Complaint

File one more complaint, God.
Put away another file, God.
If you didn't notice I've called.
I've called three times in the past week,
I still haven't gotten a response.
Hello, God? Are you there.
I can't help but think, you were never there.
The slow realization sets in.
I've been lost now, three years.
Put religion behind me, God.
Is that why you don't respond, God?
You always contradict yourself,
Or is it those who wrote your tales?
Its always so easy to blame another, God,
I know this, I am right now.
Just file another complaint, God.

Satan? Satan are you there?
Could you turn the damn heat down?
Turn on the air conditioners, Satan?
Look how far I've fallen, God.
Take a look at my face!
I believed, but you never responded,
I left that all behind me, God,
You never told me.
Take back those words, God,
I was never saved.
Satan? File complaint number three.
God? File request number three.

-Andy Hillier

And three being a very symbolic religious number. To tell you the truth, I don't really have a religion.

unsure.gif Well...Reactions would be appreciated...But here goes...


Another Alice
I've fallen down the rabbit hole
Perspective skewed by things unseen
I cannot hold together
My thoughts scatter randomly
Round and round they go
The Roulette wheel
And the Russian's game
A tumbler and a gun
Falling always it never stops
I never hit the ground
My world rushes away from me
And I keep falling down...


Untilted
Tattered wings and sullied form
Halo tarnished and far from grace
The angel turned from heavens door
To this sad and lonely state
No one hears the tears as they fall
The quiet crying of a broken soul
A heart that simply could not take
The devestating fall from grace
So far so fast, it hurt so much
A blur of impressions that never fade
Memories of things so sweet
Rapture of the highest sort
Contentment and fulfillment gone
Gone the way of grace
Time takes its heartless toll
The whites now turning grey and black
Spirit shattered beyond repair
Edges always sharp
Waiting in the night
So the angel sits unforgiven
Dreaming of the days of grace
Perhaps when at last death comes
To take this thing that is neither this nor that
There will be a pardon waiting
And then the sorrow vanish
As once more the angel knows its home
Forgiven, and returned to grace
Untitled.
very good! *applause*
