    I miss 

    I miss the wayΒ  I could lay my head on the clouds

    And forget about the world

    I miss the night cool breeze

    That gently swayed me to sleep

    I miss the sunlight that warmed my face

    I miss the rain drops that caress my curves as they fell

    I miss the dance of the leaves by my feet

    I miss the smell of freshly cut grass

    I miss it all

    I miss sanity

    Hound Dogs 

    Hound dogs clawing at the walls in my mind

    Trying to unleash

    My hidden thoughts

    Things that don’t make sense

    Things that should be confined

    Perversion, cruelty, deceit,

    Evil doings,

    Simply sick contraptions


    The hounds never seem to let up

    Their claws go deeper

    Their vicious growl goes louder

    The walls are weak

    They crumble beneath their paws


    Set free

    To wreak havoc

    In an already unstable mind


    They hunt,

    They prey

    For the next spot of weakness

    Until there is nothing more to devour

    Until the emptiness

    Swallows me

    What did I do?

    Where did I go wrong?

    To deserve the agony of this slow burn

    I know I can’t be the only one

    Hurting this way

    I can’t be the only one bounded by misery

    Struggling for the freedom

    For the carelessness

    I once had as a young child

    Is there anyone that can comprehend,

    Such lonesome,

    Such frigidness

    Are you out there?

    People always say,

    “It will be okay”

    And still I am stuck

    Pleading and screaming

    No more!

    When will that be over?

    When will I find the warm days I long for?

    The days where I slow danced with the breeze

    The days before you ruined my normalcy

    The days before you murdered my happiness,

    My innocence

    Where are those naive days before I met life?

    Searching for a smile

    Seeking an embrace

    Sifting through this love

    Or this hate

    Scrutinizing and probing

    Creating and destroying

    Only to fabricate this monstrosity;

    My life

    I have sabotaged it all

    To find the one thing

    We all hunger for

    I have hurt you

    I have left you

    I have forgotten you

    To some how hold on to

    This fleeting happiness I have

    I have yet been able to find it

    I have yet been able to hold on to it

    I have yet been able to truly say

    I am happy

    I have found happiness

      Well expressed. Yes, sometimes I find myself searching for that happiness, that smile and then I end up getting confused about what ‘happiness’ is! ‘Happiness’ may not be all joy and laughter. It might just be a deep sense of being true to oneself. It may bring tears or smile. But, I’ll be happy. From a personal point of view, I visualize your poem ending with this latent line ” I have found ‘I’ ” . In that manner, I like the way your poem keeps the interpretation of happiness open to the reader. Great blog! I’ll keep coming back for more πŸ™‚

    I have been trying to escape from you

    For years

    And still you’re a strong presence

    In my life

    The thought of you poisons my attitude

    The mere mention of your name

    Makes me want to crawl in a


    And no longer exist

    My life has been nothing

    But a revolvement of you

    Of what you did

    Of what you are still capable of doing

    To me

    I run away

    Inside of myself

    To get away

    FromΒ  all this torture

    To try and somehow find the numbness

    I use to have

    The coldness I used to deal with this


    Is it possible that I’ve used it all up?

    Now I’m stuck here

    Having to deal

    With all this heaviness

    That I can’t keep carrying

    I don’t know how I found strength

    To carry this burden for so long

    Or is this where I belong now?

    In order to get rid of it all

    In order to walk away

    With the little sanity I have left?

    I really don’t know anymore

    I wish I didn’t care either

      I really identify with this a lot. I like your writing very much. I used to write a lot of poetry too, but some of the stuff I have is very angry and/ or explicit. I don’t know if I will ever post it or not.

        Thank You:) Some of my writing is very angry as well.. haven’t posted any of those really. But I hope to read one of yours, if you ever post one πŸ™‚

      Tootsie, this was hard to read. As a Mom myself, I can’t imagine leaving a child behind.

      The hard thing is, how could you not care? That’s what’s so hard to come to terms with.

      Beautiful poem.

        That is the hardest to come to terms with, I agree completely!

    Short & to the point.”This anger” 

    This anger swells up inside of me

    Fighting to break through

    This anger tries to climb out of me

    Like it has been long overdue

    This anger leaves behind so much debris

    Obstructing my view

    Why must this anger still live inside of me?

    Stuck to my heart- breaking it in two

    Here we are 

    Here we are

    At the final destination

    This rut, this bad place

    A place where the cold lives

    Where our love has dampen

    Where our kisses have dissipated

    I am left with these conflicting feelings

    Of love and hate

    Of happiness and sorrow

    Of the old you and this impostor

    I’m trying to hold on

    To the memories

    To the words once spoken

    To this love that came out of nowhere


    I hate you so much

    I just want to let this love

    Slip from my


    Slip right into the ground

    To no longer be revived

    Or remembered


    Something about you

    Makes me latch on to you more

    And yearn the hurt that is and

    Always will be inevitable

    Tell me, Love

    Does anyone really know how to love?

    Is love an action or an emotion?

    Or is it both?

    Isn’t love God

    If love is God

    Then love is perfect

    Love is forgiving

    Love does it all

    So how can I love

    When I’m not perfect

    I’m so far off perfect

    When I’m not so forgiving

    At times revengeful

    When some days I

    Can’t do nothing at all

    So tell me love, what amΒ  I suppose to do?



    • raquel 11:08 pm on October 25, 2010 Permalink | Reply

      Well love is god. but I believe god gave us feelings to feel for him and others what he feels for us. he loves us. and yes at times we are full of vengance and want revenge on those who hurt us. but if god forgives us for all the harm human beings have done and hurt theyve caused then why cant we take that as a lesson learned and do the same? I love you maybe not as much as god does but i think its pretty close. its a wonderful feeling or emotion at times and then other times its painful. but hes given us that sence of emotion and we have to take advantage of it. Once theres love in your heart nothing seems the same… love this blog!

    Untitled as of now.. Inspired by relationships around me. 

    When you came into my life

    You caught me by surprise

    I wasn’t searching

    I wasn’t expecting to fall in love

    Here I am now

    Deeply invested

    Unleashing all the love

    I have within

    Time pass

    And by surprise

    You completely change

    Towards me

    Towards my love

    How am I suppose

    To pretend like

    Everything is okay

    When you are so distant?

    What am I suppose to do

    With all this love?

    All the love I grew for you

    Did you know it would

    Turn out this way?

    Did you know you would

    Stop loving me one day?

    What am I suppose to do now?

    No answer…

    Through all the silence

    You hear my heart break

    And even though it hurts you

    To pain me this way

    No action is taken

    Only the letting go

    As you walk away

    Just on my mind 

    Haven’t updated in a while…. so here goes–

    So many things are on my mind

    Why am I here?

    Why are you here, now, in my life?

    How did we end up here?

    Dancing and twirling in confusion

    Singing a song that is off tune

    Laughing without feeling

    Are we pretending?

    We move on and on

    With no set purpose

    Just the mass chaos that goes on

    In our minds

    In our hearts

    In our soul

    As long as we can hide this pain

    Cover all the hurt from the past

    I am completely content

    With the thought of continuing this extravagant show

    For everyone to see

    I will just have to live another day

    With this uneasy feeling

    That maybe it is not right

    But what is?

    Maybe these are just fabricated thoughts

    That come about to entertain me

    Just the things

    That crowd my mind

    To escape from the grips

    Of this overwhelming sadness
