Same Love

So this is my first attempt at a rap/spoken-word poetry. Let me know what you think. 🙂

 

You look at me disgust plain to see.

It’s written on your face,

no disguise,

it can’t hide as you sneer,

mock,

laugh,

jump in fake fear if I ever come near.

But I pity you that’s the shock,

that’s the truth.

Your ignorance is your achilles heel.

See, I don’t care what you think

’cause I’ve been to the brink

and I’ve looked into the abyss

and I’ve come back to this

and I can see your fear for a world you don’t understand,

and I wish I could teach you,

nurture you,

reach you.

Help you to realise that love is love

no matter the type.

It shouldn’t be judged,

or restricted,

or punished.

Love is free.

Love is true.

And if a boy loves a boy well,

who cares if they do?

It’s a gift just to find someone to share in your life,

So why should we judge whether that love,

or another,

is right?

Pyromaniac

Flames dance like naked beauties

Baring their essence to the air.

Flickering…flashing…snapping.

Whipping their way around the black

Smouldering dance floor.

The Last Sunrise

This is a poem that a follower of mine sent into me. I think it is mighty good and so I have decided to share it with all of you. 🙂 I hope you enjoy it and like it as much as I do. Many thanks to Max for sending it in and obviously all copyright remains with him. (This was posted with his permission)

 

 

Will you be the last thing I see,

The first thing I see in the morning?

You shine so bright.

You light everything up in this tough life,

You have caused much love and joy in my life.

The mornings that I have woken up and you have been shining down on me,

The streaks of colour you brought to my life when the end of the day was near,

But now it seems like its time to say good bye.

It looks like I am coming to end of the line of life

I will not be able to see you shine from 6 feet under.

No more streaks of colour,

No more waking to the shine,

The end of the road is near

And i shall miss you forever.

I hope you join me eventually in the far distant future.

The last time I see my rising sun.

The person I love is drifting away,

Goodbye my love…
