What does hope mean? ?

Hope is the bright shining light which keeps darkness at the bay
Hope is the gentle cold breeze on a hot summer day
Hope is to remain positive when it gets tough
hope is seeking more when others think of having enough


Hope is dreaming of tomorrow
Hope is simmering under sorrow
Hope is sparkles when tears in our eyes
Hope is a beautiful thing & beautiful things never dies


Hope is as light as a feather
Hope keeps all of us together
Hope is ubiquitous and free of cost
hope is the last thing ever lost.....

Figures you'd catch me on a bad day
When nothing seemed to be going my way,
but the pendulum's come back around this time
and i am reminded of all the sublime
truths of love and confidence.

Simple summer heat simmers on the edge of my consciousness,
promising such joy that it could never deliver.
But one drop of cream, skimmed from the top
is enough to make my jaw drop,
and my tongue extend.

Now follow me into the ground,
where energy and secrets abound,
I'm ready for my closeup here
As in this place I've chased all fear
down to wonderland.

The lightning flash, the cymbal clash,
and everything comes clear,
it's times like these I wish a sneeze,
could last throughout the year.

And now I'll go
and make it snow
on distant mountaintops,
and whether or not I reach the peak,
at least I'll enjoy the drops.

still there

the moon wanes, casting out a red poppy glow,

the skater comes, on black ice...

filling up his frozen heart,

by a daisy in the snow.

My eyes are burning out of their sockets
My heart is clinging to hope
My brain is shutting down

What more can you take from me?
What more do you want?

Would blood from my brain suffice?

I bite my thumb at you and pray you feel the sting.
The perfect image of something the eye see's as perfect

It's nothing more than the lie your heart created.

May the light find you and break you

Free.

sad indeed,

there are other freedoms
still

freedom from having no ideas, from this dryness,
freedom from having you
as a poet on forced wit and half-cooked cleverness
freedom from a reader
who has nothing to offer
except her own loneliness
her having nothing to do
freedom from beng bored
to death
freedom from having nothing
to say and comment
freedom from this feeling of emptiness
this bigotry
this indigestion of dumb thoughts
freedom
from impertinence, immateriality, irrelevance,
freedom from thinking about freedom
freedom from freedom itself
there are more, but they mean nothing.

freedom from pain
is useless now

that you are dead.

Free chocolates, free milk.

Free peanuts, free tea.

Free sex, free kids.

Free injustice, free justice.

Free spree, free pee.

Champagne made of golden grapes
Dances down my throat
I sit waiting for your voice to wake me from my stupor
Tell me it's a lie.

Tell me you're only sleeping in your loneliness
Let me wake you with this kiss.
Is gorgeous really what you seek?
My kind heart is not enough.

I've been told over and over
By the voices in my head
It's not over.

You stand a chance to fly above
You stand a chance to feel and make love.

Please don't sit in silence anymore
Take my hand and let's walk through that door.

The past is the past
And you are in the present.
And I am right here.

Take me from my silent domain, this explainable pain.
I walked in silence for far to long when all i wished was to break out in song.
It felt like enough just to be at your side, no danger of my lust controlling my mind.

How is this your wish? This eternal bliss...
you say i fear nothing when there is so much to lose.
Our paths intermingling and conjoining as one, so far from my safety of solitude,
my dreams ne'r could compare.

You say we simply see where this takes us?
forget your past and embrace the future.
My future is bleak if we are not meant to be one.
If our paths conjoining and intermingling is not meant to be,
i will have lost that which is greatest, My wish that one day we could be together...

Is it foolish to not want to take this chance at hopelessly beautiful romance?
Am i a fool for wishing we stay far away as we once were?
You say love is simple not confined by thoughts and feelings,
but i believe love is the true essence of being.
Love is no more simple than your past and our future.

If i take your hand through this unknown door will our love be able to take away my silence,
can we relinquish our past's. Or will our past take all that is dear.
I am far to in love to stand against my lust to be yours, and my love that out-pours.

If you stand and listen you'll hear the cry
I walk the path to find a mind manipulated.

I speak of the present.
The now. Look into my eyes.
Would I lie?
If you fear the past, it will haunt you until you die.
I can't let that happen.

I won't.
I'll fight to win back what was you.
I'll fight for that smile I glimpsed at when it was real.
I want to keep that smile eternal.

I don't care about my happiness.
If my heart breaks, it broke for good cause.
My heart was made to be broken by the ones I've loved.
I've accepted my fate.

Someday I'll dance amongst the raining flames
But I won't be alone.
It takes a lot and so much more to keep this dance up
But no matter when my feet tire.
I'll have your heart to always admire.

let me remember this day
a girl buy the stream forgot herself
i wonder what am i looking for

one refection can it change?
and grow into a new?
a better form
to walk the path i know
is meant for me alone

and yet i'm not alone

for i feel you in the breeze
in deepest corners of my heart
and know your always there
the lantern lit
that lights my path

and all the while im growing
blooming, changing
unto another
whos face i know not yet

she smiles patiently
waiting
with wise dark eyes
she truly knows

that one day i'll be she
she hugs me for she knows the trials
that surly lay ahead

"never lose sight of whats really important
the path is long
there lay many stones in the road
but walk the path still and never stray
the woods are dark as you know"

I've come into the forest and now I'm lost
Don't follow me yells the stranger, whom I call boss
He get further away but I keep chasing
4 lines is all I need, I don't like wasting

A wise man to answer all my questions
Why do my words never make it through?
Would better vocabulary do?

Whenever I get close to hug another
They turn into a shadow.
Dark and hallow.

All I ever wanted was for my actions and words to react like gold.
For someone to see their shine and beauty.
But lately it takes another to spin the spindle.

I wonder if they bleed too.

Lately it seems like you're not communicating.
All i see is endless ruminating,
and what does that do?

If you respond with a title,
it doesn't make it vital,
to what you're trying to say.

So if you wont respond,
or dive into the pond,
of other people's verbiage,
people will start to think that you're dipping into some serious herbage.

Bluh!

The silence is loud.
The buzz is subtle.

Lush and green waters
They begin to bubble
The warmth consumes up to my eyes.

My eyes try to speak words you can't hear.
I wish beyond the bright sun
To the stars in the big galaxy.

Give me strength, power, and patience
To love this broken-hearted monkey.
