"My dream is not a dream."

These are the words painstakingly, clumsily, slowly written across the page

The others point and laugh, sniggering openly behind their hands and staring with hardened eyes as he struggles to write a single, mandated poem.

"My dream is an illusion, a foolish fantasy, a mirage. I know now that what I imagined was pointless,

false,

and impossible.

It was too beautiful."

He re-adjusts his grip on the pen. It is unfamiliar in his fingers, as writing utensils are, save for the duration of these seventeen months, forbidden by the unfair Topix moderators.

He wishes he was able to type, and remembers his one true friend, with sadness.

"No, my dream is not a dream, and if it is, it will not come true.

Ever."

ALMOST
ike a joke without a punch line ,bring it up almost ,but never fly
The minute stalled awaiting the big haul ,held back to hold a line
A complete take over or just stillness and addling awaiting a big cry
The unknown end or a twisted bend in a mild or ruthless road ,to be loved,sometimes feared but never taken as a crime

A solution is shown to everything it's supposed to be ,maybe never known to the host ,to remain in the background as the unknown ghost.
To be very real when in fear ,left in idle then slipping into gear
controlling the emotion is akin to the clutch on ice,almost lost then abruptly straight even like a post.

The total collapse is never felt or even taken as a sudden thought
seems a waste of time to wonder about what has been been when remembering how to breathe
A softness with a looming glow ,seems easy to explain,but it really is not
When wanting an expression it goes afoul when held in oppression
Wanting to stay ,possibly knowing how easy it is to go ,held above as if to appease.

Finding a new way from experiences from the other day can become the foundation
If you were stable & strong will the ride to edge become a reason to stop the forward aggression
If it is to be understood ,we can not hide beneath a hood ,offered a second chance ,to be realized or lost in stagnation.
When it becomes an endless journey of highs & lows ,to be taken seriously or
being friendly or foe,is it the living or the dying that become the addiction? Rick

A broken heart doesn't mark the end of the book...just the chapter.
We fill ourselves with each other
and as we drown utter curses between us
we push each other away further
and lament of distance and of trust
we slash our wrists in muted pleasure
and despair of blades that rust
still we cling so desperately to forever
to a love that will never last..........

You know the problem of having
a history of unsuccessful love?

You can't remember any previous history.

And when you can finally forget about them,
you're a blank book.

Can I rewrite that?

You dont need to be in a relationship to be a complete person
you're complete because of who you are
not because of who you're with..

And the world looked down at her and laughed.

It laughed, and laughed, and laughed, the world started crying, and the raindrops then hit her head.

And all Autumn felt was now loneliness, sadness and despair.

Even though she was surrounded by people that loved her, and that she loved, she had never felt lonelier.

And it struck her like a lightning that maybe the world hated her, and she hated it, and maybe it was best for the both of them that she disappeared.

Because that was how everything felt at the moment, or the last months.

She had never cried herself to sleep that often, she had never felt more pains in her chest, and heart.

She had never felt more hopeless, she had never felt more stupid and like a waste of space.

And then the world stopped laughing, so the rain stopped, and she felt the earth move.

That was maybe the earth’s way to say; yes.

So she climbed up on the top of the building, looked down, and then the earth started laughing, bringing the tears.

Autumn felt the rain in her hair, her face, her hands, she was soaked.

And then she looked down from the edge, and the earth stopped again.

She could feel it spinning, she felt dizzy, she felt sad, she felt hopeless, she felt… lonely.

She put one step on the edge, and then she flew away.

Like a little bird reaching for the sky, only that Autumn was going the other way.

So many stories are alike,
With only a few small differences to count them apart.
Still they are far from the same.
My story may sound like yours,
But we've got different chapters in between.
And the ending's not settled.

8I don’t need to see you to love you
I only need to know you’re there;
I don’t need to feel you
To have you touch my heart
I only need to know you care

I don’t need to look into your eyes
To believe that this is real
I only need to understand
What you think and feel

Love, it is a feeling
That can’t be seen, and though,
I would love to have you here to hold
Just by having you in my life
I have everything

I Love You...

HOME CANNING/SELF PRESERVATION
"Preservation of our own creation,finding simplicity through synchronicity,the reality of ONE.
Starving for a future ,then wallowing in the past complex or simple we will to make it last.
willingly await the future with only a facsimile of reality ,following the trends without making true amends make a BIG claim but still aghast with our true trepidation."

"Left to our own devices we're all to similar in our struggle with simple survival
A beginning without a view of an ending ,the present without a past
Will a pleasnat end ,depend on how it began ,the deck is dealt or amendable though revival
A beginning SO BRIGHT ,no reality sloppy not solid, reality is hidden when time passes so fast.

Flailing in the present is our only source of reality, listen to our breath the heartbeat keeps the pace.
We as one or a product of surroundings,circumstances, natural progressions
Separate with the goals but relying on the others to achieve the roles
Start basic,dream BIG, settle on beige ,was the intention to work for the wage or simply turning your own page.
Legs are shorter,eyes are BIGGER ,a broad world ,swimming is easy when floating downstream
Don't forget the plan, keep a steady pace ,possibly to win your OWN race". Rick

She can deal with stress and carry heavy burdens.
She smiles when she feels like screaming, and she sings when she feels like crying.
She cries when she's happy and laughs when she's afraid.
Her love is inconditional
There's only one thing wrong with her, she forgets what she's worth...

Frankie & Johnny in the Claire de Lune

Love is not simple.

It's messy.

It's part history,
part chemistry,
And always full of hope...

When it's at it's fullest power,
it's raw...

...very raw...

...and dangerous.

So dangerous,
some chose
to avoid love.

...while others can't
be satisfied without it...

True love is naked...

...it's uninhibited...

...unrated.

...truth comes from
the most vulnerable places.

A Lovers Dance

A lovers dance is patient and kind
It feeds your heart, soul and mind
It brings you joy and happiness within
Knowing that he or she will be with you
Through thick and thin.

A lovers dance can be recaptured
Only if the partners heart has not been
Fractured.

A lovers dance has no mistakes
It plays no one not even games.

A lovers dance is slow and kind
Easy to learn but hard to find...

A lovers dance...

I am a Jack-o-Lantern my light will shine , will shine so bright.
For I am a Christian Pumpkin.
My symbols tell that what's right.
My nose is like the cross on which the Savior died,
to set us free from sin we need no longer hide.
My mouth is like a fish.
The whole wide world to show,
that Christians live in this house and love their Savior so.
The story starts at Christmas
My eyes are like the stars, that shone
on baby Jesus and wise men saw from afar.
My color it is Orange just like the big bright sun
that rose on Easter Day a long with God's own son.
And so on Halloween, let's set our pumpkins out
to tell the trick or treaters that Gods love is all about..

dont know the author and I found it on the net thought
everybody would like it..I hope so..:o)

NATURAL CURVATURE
How do I perceive that straight line, see it while moving forward or always in hindsight
Is the view from the side or some perceived parallel, a single stumble or fall or maybe the last call
Beginning to venture outward ,no blockade or a closed gate ,because they never realize their own blight
Blown out with a breeze relaxed ,at ease, whether playin along a pasture or that dark never ending hall.

Does it begin from below ,a level field from an even plane ,average then radiating upward
A tingle from the toes moving towards vision ,outwards through follicles
never ending ,always repeating a recirculating manner ,simply playing ,not yet suffered
Emerging collecting matter & manners ,unassuming to revealing,so basic not diabolical

Progressing without professing naturally rising the bow , gradient to a plateau
An ongoing outburst is never seen as a flat line ,raising & rising calling to muster
Life as a transition,constant friction, happiness as an addiction,not a Van Gogh
A straight chime , the shape of a bell, a flat tone or a resounding sound cluster

Someday we'll forget the hurt, the reason we cried and who caused us pain.
We will finally realize that the secret of being free is not revenge,
but letting things unfold in their own way and own time.
After all, what matters is not the first, but the last chapter of our life
which shows how well we ran the race.
So smile, laugh, forgive, believe, and love all over again...

I agree! with the freedom levels. The understanding of what true freedom is has been what some may see as an "epiphany" for me. levels of honesty with myself are seen as freedoms for instance.
Been writing some odd stuff lately haven't posted some of it, wasn't sure what people thought of a lot it or what someone else may be "seeing" that I didn't ,I tend to just say things in one flowing pattern of thought ,trying to stay on a topic at least,& even though it may not appear that way,most is written or thought of with a positive note or side to it. Hope your well . Rick

TO Princess Hey...

Show how often winning is never giving-up
for your future is not only trying to get by
it's cutting your own piece out of the sky
you 'not luck' determine how much is in your cup

Mind over matter, the use of willpower to overcome
physical problems is changing your state of mind
the more you experience it the more you'll find
the answer to your problems can have a good outcome

So be deliberate and conscious through life's journey
map the route, don't burn the bridges, plot the course
be forever thankful God is your main guiding force
and you'll win all the bouts and finish 1st in the tourney!

I have never given up
life has given myself and maybe others many battles
I have won lots and lost lots
I live for the day when my time has come
to stand before my maker and him say
Child well done
Thats what I live for and nothing else.
Maybe make a difference in someones life
or try and be there for someone else.
I worry more about others than my ownself.
I guess others finds that odd but I feel like
that is my job here on earth to help someone else..
Loved what you said H. and TY..no
one understands me and i guess they never will
but thats okay,I am me and different and thats okay
I maybe a mess but you know I am his mess and he
is working on those messes and one day I will be with him...Amen..

He is my remedy and clarity
The locket around my heart
His wisdom is my restraint
Our love is mirrored in a kaleidoscope dream
Patience flows through his finger tips
His shoulders are my strength
He is my remedy and clarity
The locket around my heart
His wisdom is my restraint
Gentle is his touch
Kind and generous is his love
I long to hold him in my arms but tomorrow will not come
It never comes
And
Yesterday is gone
The wind blows
It howls
It blows the shingles off the house
He is my remedy and clarity
The locket around my heart
His wisdom is my restraint
I wrote my love for him while vacationing on the moon
It is there among-st the stars
For eternity
Because my love for him is evermore
Infinite
Spans the galaxies
But I’m not what he needs
I’m not what he needs
Just not what he needs
