Poetry / ALL I KNOW IS
February 15, 2016, 06:48:07 PM

A light once possessed, this want, had a common thread, we begin

to unravel, left with lingered thoughts of you, once made me insane

deep, inside my veins, you, came like a drug to flow under my skin

when the conditions were right, comes a perfect storm, so multi-layered

my right to saver, you, an impression of, a deepest void, my failure to nigate
left only, a need, a fix, my heart was fire, steeped like a craving, not shared
as your memory differs from mine, you and I remember, in our own way to explain

the story of a love now having gone cold, left behind, of what was, the image seared
of me watching you go, my eyes are left wide, for all I know is gone, the hurt retained
like some paper thin walls that come back to echo , to reverberate, not fade
that dripping sink, our first place, no longer a comfort, my fist through a wall
my way to recall, a few minutes more, just to lie with you, in the bed, we made

as your memory differs from mine, you and I remember, in our own way to explain

the story of a love now having gone cold, left behind, of what was, the image seared
of me watching you go, my eyes are left wide, for all I know is gone, the hurt retained

In those moments that held us cold and sober
where the silence crawls, apathy becomes the thrill
demanding all our attention, realizing the fight
in us was finished, a bitter pill we swallowed, moreover
to have a love you can\'t get back, our paradise lost
a love left in redux, now a casualty, the final cost
like a half past moon, no reason to stay
we have nothing left to savor or hinder
with our tongues silently rendered, why
didn\'t love stay, paying the price, no say
love was a conversation in passing, no pat answer
we lift the flag of surrender- as love goes down under
if it wasn\'t enough, for us both, this love, we shared
a love we once devoured, to fight or flight, now a blur
to have a love you can\'t get back, our paradise lost
a love left in redux, now a casualty, the final cost
honesty our only option, with hearts laid out on the sleeve
while in the morning after, it was the wedge to drive us away
truth or consequence, was it you, or was it me, maybe both or
a little bit of happenstance, a part of our growing make believe
to have a love you can\'t get back, our paradise lost
a love left in redux, now a casualty, the final cost

                             THE YEAR IN REVIEW

If there was a year that was, mark this as the year that was because

as it begins to pass into history- or infamy let us not forget, to reflect

on all the gun violence at every turn from city to city, village hamlet and town

making us take stock, run for cover -so tell me, why are there so many haters

we got the NRA- black lives do matter-watch your back-while guns have no mind

still hate has an agenda -paint a pretty picture, in tender mercies, hardly, what a year

recount, the trouble overseas- settling scores, political game changers more troubles

all the hot spots, international dangers, Iran, Iraq, Russia with Syria, Afghanistan

Pakistan-Palistine, Israel- USA and now we got us a lame duck president-politics anyone?

a transition year-Trump or Mrs Clinton, Rubio, Cruz, Bernie Sanders- why we can\'t wait

as the dust finally settles-and we say for the first time ever, hail to our Madam President

for it was a year of planes trains, automobiles , fast food-lines- fire the grill-ketchup, mustard

burger, fries all the calories galore- Mac Burger or Donald King- Delta, the American Air Lines

all the takeover does it really matter which one emerges- victorious, we still had countless delays

more bad weather, all the crowds, with less patience, gas cost less- no lines- so don\'t ask or complain

as we hang on to every single word, imogii, emoticon more deep thinkers- android, apple- cell phone

Ipads, the climates changing- soon no more polar ice- the astronauts, space dust, Mercury, Pluto,Mars

a space race- rocket- X-drones- you pay through the nose- still keep me earth bound, firmly footed

plant me on the ground- give me the newest bestseller, or Star Wars-with Adele\'s triumphant return

CNN, fighting ISIS-fighting words- multiple religions John Lennon\'s words ring true, we live in fear

fall out shelters up in the mountains, whats next and still there was more- the terrorists continue

to threaten every nation, where no ones safe- paralyzed California-Je suis (I am) Paris-who\'s next

how much longer till we come together as one united front, angry, and make those f***kers pay

so give us peace- our rally cry- we can no longer delay- and still it would not be a year complete without

those Kardashians, Bruce Jenner\'s transition -call me Caitlain- how far we\'ve come, Kim and Kanye

Chloe and Lamarr, Kylie, Kendall- just how many are there- as we delve into pop-culture-the internet

google- face book- tinder, pintrest, your guess or mine- and yes there will be a quiz- so don\'t you fret

as we drop the crystal ball in Times Square one more time count it down to 10-drop all the confetti

make a huge mess- who cares- someone else will clean it up - a million people crammed into one square

mile- with friends you never met, ready, set, turn the calendar page- start the clamity, more hysteria,

see whats next- repeat the process- count your blessings- look toward the future-knowing we cannot

prevent what we don\'t see ahead- take a breathe- one day at a time, 365, 366 who\'s counting, leap year

take it all in stride, run but you can\'t hide or turn back the time, every-body smile-Happy New Year

willows weep
silent stoic
poised in saintly supplication
bitter surroundings meld
leaving barren crusts of earth exposed
ancient roots bleached white
cling together
as the onslaught of night continues unabated
frost heaves deeply cut
furrow frozen ground, winds moan
incessantly digress to a Winter\'s canticle
paying homage to the dead

Hello Cordelia
It is my attempt as a pause, or stop a thought, then to carry on.  I do use commas and periods in sentences and paragraghs when I write letters but for me when I write poetry, this is how I think it and write- I know it is unorthox, and for alot of people it is oft-putting, and I am sorry that it is difficult read- that is not my intent.  I will do my best in the future to keep your comments in mind when I post again.  Regards Mike

                   CHRISTMAS (deconstructed)
for the story to start, the snow will begin to fall-silently, we cleave
search for a reference point, be re-awakened- ready to listen
as we close our eyes, take heed-prayers answered, if we believe
comes a star, impossible to ignore, for there up in the sky
sitting stoic, to wait, shining bright-brightest- it comes to guide
a soul catchers dream-to lead a cause, no reason to ask why
it demands our attention for on this night, be like no other
something magical-indefinable, comes created-heaven sent
a bless-ed event-for what\'s in a name, we take in, to be discovered
for it is written, out of a promise made, vows broken through
disguised, for in whose name, we take his in vain-we will stray
deny him- or blame- still faithful, be drawn back, when spoken to
ready to come when called, to believe-compromise, fall in line
give in to redemption, based solely on a miracle-the color of gold
yet from out of whose humbled beginnings, we see it, the divine
that which makes a night-brought center stage, pierced by the cold
a mother and her child huddled-deep within a stable-unaware, they
show us- that we are guided by the simple words on a page-ages old
in the hopes that some will follow-and let the miracles unfold
while others will cry-imposter- they demand his head- there is no peace
yet from out of this divide will come-as we behold- Christmas
a faith-led by the nose-or based purely in faith- we will comprehend
what the heart will accept- becoming our picture of that first scene
a starry night-beheld we tremble, reflect-genuflect- praise his name
for on this night-comes a child- pleading, to be heard- still, regardless
blaspheme , carry on-what does it all mean-for me, for you, your version,
or mine -what ever the belief system, for every one else- it is, Christmas

Hi Stewart your a font of dramatic wonder- your words are lyrical-off putting, deep, profound-under the skin and skin deep- keeping us at a distance and drawing us in- to the magic and mystery of -the written word!...Thank you for sharing!...regards Mike

Hi Stewart Your writing leaves me to feel I am so inadequate as a writer, myself.  While, your words (each and every one of them)-fit, and find a place in the sentence- they transcend- to give a lyrical conceptualization of a mood, a moment or an act of some kind- of what is and what isn\'t -this is what makes your poems profound- something bigger than the page it is written on- I am truly a fan!..regards Mike
