THE RAVENSTOOTH

Posted in poetry with tags , , , on October 29, 2010 by ravenstooth
Hey now.  Here we go
Show the way.
Whatever we may
You’ve seen it all before.
 
The time will intend
No time to pretend
Where is my friend
Hanging inside my head
This ravenstooth will shout and bend
To freak like nothing flys again
I saw what I thought love dead ends
I will whisper all my fears to hide again
 
A rippled river to be clear
Somewhere the cloud stands near
Looking inside life, like there’s only fear
As I wave with tears
 
Time is waving
 
I remember this one day I was falling off a cliff
And the days were like waterfalls counting sleep
They stopped the record player from skipping
And when the signs fell limped in cotton sheets
The bottom crawled like empty covered tents
Silently mocking deer and playful windy ridge tops
Where are the wretched outskirts where we collide
Where are the ghosts that inspired moth’s flight
I watched the drowning noise bellow hot lips ragged
Nothing in the dawn walked through the ancient prism
 
The stranger touched the brim of town
The night became like day in his eyes black as wisdom’s pain
He opened the door to the shallow realm
And conspired the dead ridged rain to bathe beauty
 
Echo’s- past tense
Wake up- I wish to thrill you
Motions- drain my loose cock’s dying edge
All night long with these fuck throttled levitation
 
There is a vision that can dance the lust
There is a vision that will fuck with us
There is someone who can break the trust
Could just look watching into the dust
Could be that the dream was never lost
Was never- dream was a- was never lost
Drum on…
 
My time is now dead
No sense to break the bend
Let it never befriend
The sun will never end
This ravenstooth will become free
As my feathers drop behind me
A shrill comes after your soft sighs

If you find one along the uncertain way

Look on up and you may hear me say
In my omen that shouts and cries
And now the Ravenstooth dies…
Good-bye

CLOSE MY EYES

I will close my eyes
And be free…

KATYDID

Posted in poetry with tags , , , , , , , , , on October 27, 2010 by ravenstooth
Watch the trees begin to freeze now
Like the shiver lose in my spine
I have begun to live a new life
And this time it’s all mine
 
Katydid…yeah
Katydid…
 
You sing into your world now
With your music itches my mind
I can call on your guitar’s sound
To soothe what I may need to find
 
We could stop, the blues
But what would we say
And then we won’t find our way
 
Katydid you’ve got what no one can do
The freedom to sing all those blues
 
Watch the frost begin to dew now
With the sunshine smiling at you
I can see the morning corning
As the wonder that gave you that hue
 
We could stop, the blues
But what would you say
And then we won’t find our way
 
Katydid you’ve got what no one can do
The freedom to sing all those blues
The voice to shout out those tunes
Katydid…
 
 

WHAT HAVE I FOUND

Posted in poetry with tags , , , , , , , , , , on October 26, 2010 by ravenstooth
What have I found
Inside this box
Never believed
My world just rocks
I held on so long
To ripped and rotten
And what I have found has made me forgotten
 
She smiles inside my visions and dreams
I hold her there to seal the seams
We live so far away from our love
There must be something we can think of
To make the distance become a walks width
And make the time away easier to miss
 
What have I found
Was love in this box
Now I believe
Her world rocks
I’ll hold her for ever-long
To sip her sweet smile
For what I have found will be with me every mile
 

LIFE ENSUE

Posted in poetry with tags , , , , , , , , , , , on October 25, 2010 by ravenstooth
I feel frozen into her bright blue eyes
Changeling as the silent wings cry
She wore my best armor peeled and forgotten
Hammered in trusting residual, much too rotten
I stood there like an innocent boy
She held me so sturdy past all joy
I teared up while she took over my soul
When I sprang from my youth she swallowed me whole
there was nothing else I wanted to do
So I nudged her freezing winter deja’vu
And we saw the rest of our life ensue
Like lovers do…

SENSUAL WORLD

Posted in poetry with tags , , , , , , , , , on October 24, 2010 by ravenstooth
I listen to his every word… word
His talk just makes me feel so good… oh so good
I let him into my sensual world, oh my word
He drives me to my aching. oh have you heard
Like storm that crash into my sea… just for me
He knows the reasons I come to be.  Oh he sets me free
 
I let him into my sensual world, oh my world
He holds me til I feel like I’m his girl, my heart just twirls
I could belong to him forever…I’m so sure
 
But from afar I see he’s off in search for more
The feelings touch my inner core, please hold me more
I could belong to him forever… I’m so sure
 
I let him into my sensual world, oh my word
My heart flies as high as birds, when I’m his girl
I think of him as my forever… that’s for sure
 
I listen to his every word… oh his word
His love will make me feel so good… oh so good
I hold him inside my sensual world, oh My world
He drives me to my aching. Oh he has heard
As my fire burns, my lust inflames me…just you see
He holds the reasons why I come to be. Oh he sets me free
