Poetry from a Pixie

  1. Here's a few of my poems. They're about a year old, but I still like them.

    Southern Soldier Boy

    The smell of the fire.
    The sound of the gunshots ringing out in the background.
    I could hear your voice.
    Begging.
    Pleading for water.
    In the haze of smoke and bullets,
    I ran to your side.
    You were there,
    Laying in a crimson pool of your own blood.
    "I love you," You said as my tears fell on your dirtied sack coat.
    I wiped your hair away and kissed you.
    Hoping everything would be better like the fairy tales of youth.
    But nothing happened.
    All I could feel was the blood on your lips as you slipped away.
    Now, I sit here.
    Still shrouded in black.
    Mourning the loss of the only one I'll ever love.
    Praying
    More than anything
    That I may soon be with you.
     
  2. Dear Girl

    ((This was written through the eyes of a guy that never got to say what he wanted to.))

    Dear girl,
    What has your life come to?
    Hanging on by a thread,
    Bleeding just to make sure you're alive.
    What has happened, dear girl?
    Your eyes have grown dark and your skin has whitened.
    The circles under your eyes note that you haven't slept in days.
    I watch you, dear girl, as you walk silently at night.
    Walking to the park to sit on a swing as a single light illuminates you.
    Yet, you've grown so dark that I can hardly find you.
    Where are you, dear girl?
    I used to reconize you by the bright smile always shown on your face.
    I hardly know you anymore now that it has been wiped away.
    Dear girl,
    I saw you yesterday.
    But you were cold and colorless.
    I noticed that they covered up your arms so the cuts wouldn't show.
    Months have gone by, dear girl, but my thoughts were always with you.
    Now, I'm sitting on my bed with a pen in one hand and a razorblade in the other.
    Soon, I will be with you.
    Dear girl,
    I love you...
     
  3. Demons

    Today, I am in Combat.
    I fight a demon.
    Known by many but met by few.
    This demon's name is Love.
    She lurks in the back of your mind.
    Able to come forward at any time.
    Most of the time, she is dormant.
    Not making a fuss.
    But, when she comes out, It makes you want to cry.
    The pain she causes you is not seen on the outside.
    No.
    She attacks you in your mind.
    She makes it hard to think.
    Hard to make sense.
    She shifts shapes, as well.
    Taking the form of that boy in the coffee shop.
    Or maybe that girl down the street.
    Someone you met at a basketball game,
    Or someone your best friend introduced you to.
    Never has an attack been so powerful.
    Sometimes there are two demons.
    They will fight eachother until blood and anguish is all that is left on the walls of your mind
    Yet, Love will also make you feel amazing.
    She will attach you to a person so securely, You will never let go.
    When two demons meet eachother in separate bodies,
    The result is amazing.
    You will feel like you've known them forever
    But you may only have known then a few weeks.
    Love is what I'm dealing with today.
    But it has met another one.
    In the body of a tall boy.
    His love talked to me and my love talked back
    I had no say in this conversation,
    Nor he.
    Yet, I didn't mind.
    They can converse anytime.

    Underneath the brightest stars
    Waiting in anticipation
    Being in your rundown car
    That's where I find my salvation

    Under skies of greyish blue
    Snow is falling all around me
    All these feelings are so new
    How can I say how much I love thee?

    You wrap me safely in your arms
    Frozen solid to the core
    As if to keep me from all harm
    Just like a knight in Dragon Lore.

    Your lips are cold as Ice
    As we go our separate ways
    This lonely feeling won't suffice
    We be together another day

    But when i think about our love
    My heart, it rings a Jubilee
    Unlike the clouds that lie above
    my love is clear for all to see

    A fading memory passes by
    of when i once loved another
    I brush it off and let it die
    Because we now have each other

    Now as I lie awake and Ponder
    I feel that consciousness is slipping
    And I want my thoughts to wander
    To where it of you that I'll be dreaming
     
  5. The Dance

    She gently glides down the stairs
    A fistful of tulle in her clutch
    The soft perfection of her hair
    Is only second to her touch

    He grabs her arm quite softly
    Ignores the difference in their height
    He leans in to tell her, gently,
    "You look beautiful tonight."

    She replies to his complement
    And looks into his eyes
    Wishing she knew exactly what he meant
    And hoping it wasn't lies

    Dinner passes by so fast
    And the conversation's thick
    Both hoping this dinner isn't the last
    And that the night won't end as quick

    They quickly rush to the place
    Where the dance is to be held
    A glow is present on her face
    He finds it a sight to be beheld.

    He waits 'till the right song
    To take her out onto the floor
    She quietly goes along
    Hoping it will lead to something more.

    He gently grabs her by the waist
    And puts her arms around his neck
    Against his chest, she rests her face
    And on her head, she feels a peck.

    Body touching body
    Heart in time with heart
    If only they could both see
    That neither want to part.

    The song ends too fast
    They hesitantly separate
    Both hope this dance won't be the last
    And they'll be brought back together by fate

    Eventually, the night is done
    And they stand together, face-to-face
    "Tonight, I had a lot of fun."
    She said, her feet shifting in place

    He sweeps her up and hold her close
    They share a passionate kiss
    He replies, "You're the one I love the most,
    The one I'll always miss."

    However, It's only in her mind
    That, that last stance will happen
    But if she could somehow give him a sign
    Maybe, his heart she could get in.

    But she lays her head upon his lap
    As her parents drive him home
    Hoping her heart won't collapse
    And that it's not beating fast alone.

    Now, if it's a happy ending you're looking for
    Read work from another poet
    The last stance may leave you wanting more
    And maybe later, you'll get it.

    Now, Instead of finding love
    When they found each other
    Nothing was sent down from above
    Because all the while, he wanted another

    Everyday, they talk online
    But have run out of things to say
    Maybe the stagnant window is a sign
    Things weren't meant to go this way.
     
  6. Rhyming 2

    I think about you
    More this week than the Last
    Wishing none of it was true
    And we were back in the past.

    We fought of petty differences
    That were easy to resolve
    Our love as strong as it could be
    But of it's bond, you did absolve.

    The silent wind beneith my wings
    You held me up when I was down
    Now, I look around to see you
    And you're nowhere to be found.

    Your sweatshirts hang upon my bed
    Constant reminders that you're gone
    I've been meaning to give them back
    But, they've just been there so long.

    While secretly, I find
    That in my dreams, you'll always stay
    I try my best to find another
    Or in solitude, I'll lay.

    But how can I stand to be another's
    When it's only your's I want to be
    I swear I wasn't trying to change you
    What can I do to make you see?

    Lately, I find I hate you
    How I think of you every night
    How I wonder if there's anything
    I can do to make things right.

    But when I think I'm ready to talk to you,
    I realize I'm not.
    Just the sound of your voice again
    Makes my tounge tie in a knot.

    It makes me want to yell and scream
    About all that I've gone through
    All the pain that I still feel
    And the mending I have to do.

    I want to remind you that you broke my heart
    And didn't bother to pick up the pieces
    I tried my best to gather them up
    But the heartache just increases

    Yet, no matter how much I can't stand you
    My heart is always yours
    And no matter where I go in life,
    You'll always be La Amore'

    So, Remember how we used to be
    Wherever your endevors
    And it's true what I used to say,
    "I'll love you always and forever."
