    Default An old poem(ancient history now), poetry form Lyric

    I Am Not Living Like That!


    Music was rockin', deep dreams my mind was bakin'
    She was callin', her leaving words had me shakin'
    She was gone like the clouds when I woke myself up
    I felt life fallin' into a bottomless cup!

    Front door open, dog resting on the new table
    I was crawlin', and so damn proud to be able
    Something she said, before hitting me with that bat
    To hell with you, I am not living like that!

    Music was rockin', deep dreams my mind was bakin'
    She was callin', her leaving words had me shakin'

    Music had stopped playin', did I ever truly care
    Gone was great cooking and that beautiful blonde hair
    Now I missed times, when she softly touched me like that
    Until bloody head reminded me of that bat!

    Something she said, before hitting me with that bat
    To hell with you, I am not living like that!

    Something she said, before hitting me with that bat
    To hell with you, I am not living like that!

    This is a finished poem..

    Far Above Moon's Ancient Shadow

    (A Sad Tale of Woe)

    Pain, crying pains that ripped glass,
    and black clouds waving goodbyes.
    Aye, I remember you sweet lass
    and that twinkle in your eyes.

    Far above moon's ancient shadow
    among sad gleams from lost stars.
    Frigid cold, filled a soul so shallow
    aye lass, your leaving left scars.

    Hurt, hurt resting in deepest pits
    memories dance out of tune.
    Ancient moon, sending me new hits
    each year on last day of June!

    Far above moon's ancient shadow
    among sad gleams from lost stars.
    Frigid cold, filled a soul now shallow
    aye lass, your leaving left scars.

    Time, time utterly fails its course
    nights break bones in a flurry.
    Ah, but they shoot a dying horse
    now, fate's hand does not hurry!

    Far above moon's ancient shadow
    among sad gleams from lost stars.
    Frigid cold, filled a soul now shallow
    aye lass, your leaving left scars.

    This is a powerful poem, Robert
    Wise men don't need advice, and fools won't take it - Ben Franklin
    You may not be interested in war, but war may be interested in you - Leon Trotsky
    It's not how you start, it's how you finish.

    Thank you my friend.. Seems the best and most powerful poems are so often written about real life experiences.
    I see now that , my hard times when young(so often my own fault!), gave me some truly great fodder for my poetry in my old age..-Tyr
