Before going farther, please understnad that a lot of my poetry could be considered "dark" and even "evil" to some. It isnt' always light hearted. If you don't mind, then continue on!

For all of you who know me, I'M BACK!! *giggle*

Oh, one other note. Not all of my poems are conventional "poems". A lot of what I write will (hopefully) eventually become songs. Once I get a decent program anyways...

We'll start with just one, a light-hearted one. It's kind of a love poem, one I wrote here at the radio station where I now work!

Path to the Gazing Glass

The future's so uncertain
For two like you and me.
The path is dark and winding
And it can be so hard to see.

The path we tred is long,
You know it's been hard, too.
But so long as we have each other,
I know we'll make it through.

Take my hand tonight,
And help to guide me out.
I'll take you to the gazing glass.
We'll see what we can find.
In its swirling smoke we'll look
For a clue to tomorrow.
Now tell me what you see...

We wander through the fog,
I sing the song to you.
You know the one I mean,
Please, sing along too.

Please tell me we'll hold on.
Remind me that we're strong.
Can we stop and take a rest?
We've been traveling for so long...

Take my hand tonight.
We can bed down here for now.
Then, I'll take you to the gazing glass.
We'll see what we can find.
In its swirling smoke we'll search
For a clue to tomorrow.
Now I'll tell you what I see.

I see you and I see me.
Even through the haze
Of the teasing gazing glass,
I see us in sunshine,
Warm and happy and free.

So we'll stay on this path forever,
Walking hand in hand forever,
It's you and me forever.

Missing You

It's eight o'clock, but that's all right,
I know you're not calling tonight.
Here, I'm trying with all my might
To stay focused on the guiding light,
But it's quickly fading out of sight.

Your ringtone's resounding in my head,
But it's just a trick in this lonely bed.
I'm trying to smile because you said
To look on the brighter side instead.
I just can't help it, my heart's like lead.

Don't worry about it, you don't need to,
I'm just kinda lonely and missing you.
The grass is still green, the sky's still blue,
My world really isn't tearing in two.
Sometimes I exaggerate, nothing new.

Just try to remember while you play
That I'm struggling through another day.
I know for your sake I'll be okay.
But when we're together, say you'll stay.
I just can't bear it when we part ways.

Wrote that one last night. I admit, I'm kinda missing Jake while he's on vacation.

~Ozy~
March 27th, 2006, 06:57 AM
Well, I'[m here, love. *smiles and laughs* And tonight, I WILL call you at eight. That's just the way it's gonna be, hmm? *holds you close* Well-written, my love, and emotionally evocative, at least for me.

The Journey Home

The road of life is long and hard,
And I hate it when you are so far
Away…

This road is full of twists and turns.
The rain, it drowns, and the sun, it burns
My heart…

A wide-eyed wanderer I am,
A warrior with a foolish plan
Of love…

But you are the one who gets me through.
I’m so hopelessly in love with you
Again…

You are the light that guides my way.
You are the shelter where I’ll stay.
You are the wind that cools my face.
You are the one eternal place
Where I want to be
For eternity.

The nights are so cold when I’m alone,
And all I want is to come home
To you…

These miles between us hurt so much,
And I’m always dreaming of your touch
So soft…

I’m on my way, you can be sure
Nothing can stop my love so pure
And true…

Remember this well, my soul and heart:
Together forever; this is the start
Of us…

You are the light that guides my way.
You are the shelter where I’ll stay.
You are the wind that cools my face.
You are the one eternal place
Where I want to be
For eternity.

For eternity.

You’re where I want to be
For eternity.

A love poem, YAY!

No comments? Well then, I guess another one goes up! (Limited time, band practice=evil)

I wrote this poem during a time when I was quite angry with a "friend". He thought he could just use me and then come right back like nothing happened. Obviously, I wasn't very pleased.

The Way Vipers Crawl Back

SO you think you know me?
Think that you you can call me friend?
So you think that this can be?
Think that we have reached the end?

Let me tell you this now:

I'm not okay with this!
You can't just come back!
It's not all right
(What you did)
You know as well as I
That this is so much bigger
Than the pettyness of enemies.

So you think that I'm just fine?
Think it's all the same once more?
So you think what's yours is mine?
Think we've finally breached the door?

Let me tell you this now!

I'm not okay with this!
You can't just come back!
It's not all right
(What you did)
You know as well as I
That this is so much more
Than another teenage drama.

How could you have done this?
(What you did)
How could you abuse this?
(What you did)

(What you did)

I'll never be okay!
This is so much more
Than you could ever know.
This hurt so much worse
Than I could ever say.
But you never really cared.
Why do you think I think so now?

I'm not okay with this!
You can't just come back!
I'm not all right with what you did!
You know as well as I
That this is so much bigger...
That this is so much more...
That this is so much greater...

Forget it!!
Pack Up!!
I'm THROUGH!

*laughs a little* Okay, so I should give you a chance to reply to the first, but I wrote this one today, and I wanted to get it up. Those of you whom it applies to, you know who you are.

A Ballad for the Bleeding Hearts

So they beat you and abused you,
And you couldn't even scream.
Now you think you're vile and dirty,
But this isn't as it seems.

This is the ballad for the Bleeding Hearts.
Let these lines be your gaurding shield.
What they did was far from your fault.
Don't let your heart be your entombing vault.
Those hateful weapons that they wield
Are nothing more than how their end starts.

Take a breath and dive
In to the roaring sea.
But know that you are sage.
This is not your destiny.

Remember that you're not alone.
I'll stand strong beside you.
I promise not to let you fall.
I'm going to see you through.

This is the ballad for the Bleeding Hearts,
Which means I'm writing this for me and you.
Just know that what they've said is a lie,
And I won't let brothers and sisters die
By the hands that tried to kill me, too.
Right here, right now, the healing starts.

Take shelter under my wings,
Feel the comfort that hope brings.
You'll make it, I know you will,
Let your bleeding heart be still.
You are safe here now.

You are safe here now.

There ya go!

Well, this is a poem I wrote awhile back, written from the eyes of well... *giggles* Those of you whom are close to me know, eh?

Through the Eyes of Koneko-chan

Come play with me, Kacho-chan,
I've missed you so today!
Your Koneko is lonely now.
Please say you're here to stay.

Kacho-chan, please find the tassle,
Or maybe we could get the ball.
I've been waiting all day long for this
And we still haven't played at all!

Aw, come on Kacho-chan,
I know you want to start!
Son't leave me waiting longer,
You're gonna break my heart!

Oh, Kacho-chan, don't tease!
I can't reach the tassle there!
Hey! That tickles my nose!
And yes, I really do care!

Kacho-chan, don't do that!
I melt when you scratch my ear.
No, I didn't want you to stop...
Please, just stay right here.

Yes I'm happy, Kacho-chan,
You can always make me so.
You know when I'm around you
My spirits are never low.

Please forgive me, Kacho-chan,
I don't mean to fall asleep.
But your chest is so very comfy,
I promise not to make a peep.

Kacho-chan, don't lie to me,
I'm really not that pretty.
I'm only your little Koneko,
Your loving playful kitty.

What did you say, Kacho-chan?
Forgive the focus I lack.
But you know full well what happens
When you rub my sides and back.

I'm so lucky, Kacho-chan,
And you can't tell me I'm not.
I have you to be my Master,
And that is more than a lot.

You know the truth, Kacho-chan,
That many a Koneko does wish
That they could be as lucky as I,
With a Master sweet as this.

I love you so much, Kacho-chan,
And I always will I know.
Please say you'll never leave me,
Cause wherever you are, I'll go.

I'm a good girl, Kacho-chan,
ANd I'd never want to leave you.
I've always been your Koneko,
And you've been my Kacho, too.

You want to what, dear Kacho-chan?
Can you really marry your pet?
You really mean it? You would?
Than my paw in matrimony you'll get.

I have to thank you, Kacho-chan,
For every little thing you do.
I know you don't think it's much,
But to say you're amazing is true.

I'll stay with you, Kacho-chan,
For now, forever, for life.
Someday I'll call you "husband",
And you shall call me "wife".

But right now, dear Kacho-chan,
I really hate to say it,
But I'm drifting off in your arms.
For my form, they're a perfect fit.

Kacho-chan, I promise that
Tomorrow we'll play some more.
For with two lovers odd as we,
Who knows what life has in store.

*smiles* You know I love that poem, my heart. And your new stuff, wonderful as well. You're a better poet than you give yourself credit for.

Kalylia
April 10th, 2006, 05:15 AM
*giggles* PoD, Kacho means "Master" in Japanese, and the -chan is just a way to show intimacy. Koneko means "Kitten".

Anyways, here's another one for y'all! A love poem, just because I can! :P

Lonely No More

Your fingers graze my cheek,
And you make my knees go weak.
Your strong arms wrap around
And there is no need for sound.

We're starting up again.
You aren't like most men.
Tip my chin up to your face,
And I know this is the place...

But I'm waking up again, lonely in my bed.
I'm alone like always with you inside my head.
Across from me I see the phone and wish that it'd ring.
I'm desperate for the comfort that your voice can bring.

It's just a dream, that's all.
I'm still inside these walls.
And you're still not with me.
You're somewhere I can't see.

This time apart hurts us both.
We must remember our sacrad oath.
It's almost over, right?
Please, hold me tonight...

'Cause I'm waking up again lonely in my bed.
I'm all alone like always with you inside my head.
Across from me I see your face in it's picture frame.
I miss you so, but all I can do is softly cry your name.

But when all this is done
We will finally see the sun.
Not much longer, dear.
I promise to stay my tear.

We're together for all time
Without reason or a rhyme.
I know that soon it will be
None but you and me.

I won't be waking up any more so lonely in my bed.
We'll be together finally you, your chest under my head.
Across from me I'll watch you breathing in your sleep.
I know that we've conquered all thanks to our love so deep.

*laughs* Thanks for the comments, and here's another one!

How True Love Comes to Be

There she goes.
See all the hurt in her eyes?
All the fear and confusion?
The guilt seeping from her breast?
It eats her soul.
She's alone and trembling.
She just needs a friend.
But all she has is her knife.
And she bleeds,
But she has to make it through.
Smiles away another day
For no one can ever know.

There he goes.
See the lonliness in his face?
Even in his sea of friend
He looks for something more.
They need support.
He smiles and helps faithfully,
Dreaming that one would come.
His only companion's his blade.
Tears of pain.
No one will isten, no one cares.
His inner demons abuse him.
The knife pierces his skin.

She sees him.
The tears he cries so like her own,
She pulls him close to comfort him.
She doesn't know the reasoning, but,
She needs him.
And he needs her help in the fight
Against conscience and evil demons.
She needs him to smile again.
She loves him.
She knows that she shouldn't feel it
But she can't help what she wants
Even thought it can never be.

He sees her.
He sees the pain behind her mask,
And for once doesn't feel he has to help,
But he cannot deny he wants to for
She needs him.
And she's helped him so much already.
He owes his very life to her now.
She's so new and fresh and real.
He can't say
How he feels because it shouldn't be,
But he can't help it, it's just insane.
He shinks away in sheer confusion.

There's the edge.
She's on the cliff that called so strong.
She won't stay around to hurt him more.
She loves him too much to do that now.
Take a breath.
Steadies herself for that final leap.
She's ready right now, the time is here
To stop all the pain and anguish for him.
Take her hand.
He pulls her away from her demise,
Crying that he cannot live alone.
Holding her trembling form so close.

He loves her.
He cannot deny it, and will not fight.
She cared for him when no one did,
And he wants to be with her forever.
Then she smiles.
For now it's all over and done with.
Their hurts and their pasts will heal.
They're strong enough to make it through.
A new life.
Brought together, they'll never let go.
Their love is stronger than any before.
Walking away, hand in hand, no more pain.

And here be a new one! I"m sorry that it's been forever since I've updated. Things have been keeping me busy. Anyways...

Blank Paper

Blank paper.
That's how all this began.
Blank paper.
And that's how it will end.
Blank Paper.
It begs and pleads with me.
Blank paper.
Canvas of creativity.
Blank paper.
Though not white much longer.
Blank paper.
Absorbs my thoughts and dreams.
BLank paper.
Where life is fantasy.
Blank paper.
A white art gallery.
Blank paper.
The only place I'm free.

April 18th, 2006, 05:13 PM
hey, is that what you call a free verse? ^__^
well the poem was nice eventhough it was short...i remember myself making one of these...but i got lost in the middle....anyways...great job! keep on going!

Kalylia
April 21st, 2006, 03:01 PM
Nah, that wasn't free verse. That had more rhythm than most of my poems! If you want free verse...

The One

How did I know you were the one?
What a question, indeed.
How can someone know the future?
HOw could someone ever guess?
Oh, a question indeed!

How can I ever put this
So you will understand?
Words are just not enough to convey.
I shall try, for you, my love.

The One makes you safe from all past fears and harm.
The One is so easy to be with and to be around.
Comforting and caring, passionate and true.
You're the one who makes me fell all that mad more.
You pull me close and hold me when all seems lost.
You're teh one who lights the way when all is dark.
And you're the one who will forever hold me heart.

So, how did I know all I do today?
Only a girl, but a woman inside.
I know what I do, and I'll not let go.

You are the One,
I know it's true.
And I know that life
Begins and ends with you.

That's free verse...

Kalylia
May 2nd, 2006, 01:36 PM
No comments? Well, all right. We'll post another one up and see how that goes.

I'm Just Fine

Sit up straight and hold the smile,
I know it's only a little while.
I can't take it, for that's my style.
Just add some more on to the pile.

Don't worry about it, I'm just fine.

Another step down this path.
Think it's over? Do the math.
It's my job to stop the blood bath,
My job to bear all the wraith.

Don't worry about it, I don't mind.

Close my eyes to hide the fears.
Brush away the worried tears.
I'll be with you for all our years.
I'll be here as my end nears.

Don't worry about it, I'm just fine.
Don't worry about it, I don't mind.

I'm just fine...
And I don't mind...

Well, I wrote that one quite awhile ago, but it has a nice flow to it...

I'ts been too long since my last update. This next poem is basically my life's story. Well, part of it anyways. Enjoy!

The Difference Between Lovers and Liars

Come on, beat me up some more.
He knows that I"m just his whore.
I do not know what's in store,
But I'm scared right to my core.

He tells me that he loves me,
But at times I can barely see.
He does this with such surety.
I'm scared as I need to be.

Can he tell me the difference
Between lovers and liars?
I bet he can.
But he won't.
He makes me believe that
This is the way it goes.
Who am I to say he's wrong?

You came in quietly.
He fought you so fiercely.
I'm caught unwillingly.
My world's spinning dizzily.

He tried to blind my eyes,
But you lit up my skies.
You held me while I cried.
Let me see truth in lies.

YOu told me the difference
Between lovers and liars.
He hurt me,
But you never will.
You held me tight and
Made me feel safe.
God, how could I have been so wrong?

I never meant to leave you,
Please let my one be two.
I know that you never knew,
But I need you to see me through.

You make me so happy,
Like I thought I'd never be.
Tell me that you love me.
I miss the simplicity.

I'll tell you the difference
Between lovers and liars.
One thinks of me.
One thinks of him.
You're more amazing
Than you could possibly know.
Now I know that nothing will go wrong.

He was a liar.
And you are my lover.
I can never thank you enough...

Kalylia
May 30th, 2006, 11:38 AM
No comments... Okay... this next one I based off the Lord's Prayer. Comments and critiques are greatly encouraged!!

My Lord's Prayer

To my one true, loving Father
As You watch from your place above.
Your name is so holy to me.
I relish Your light and pure love.
Let Your Kingdom come to earth,
Let us down here understand.
We know how it goes way up high,
But my family and I need a hand.

We ask that You watch o'er us
And bless us with all we need.
All the things our bodies desire,
Also those upon which the soul feeds.
Forgive these places on our path
Where we have done some wrong.
And we, in turn, strive to be
Forgiving our whole life long.

Keep up safe from tempting sin
And deliver me from evil's grip.
I need Your guidence every step.
Take my hand, don't let me slip.
I announce all that's Yours as such.
You have the power and the glory.
And it extends through all of time.
Please help me write my life's story.

I need you and I know you're there.
Thank you for showing how much You care.

I pray that you continue to watch over me.

Wow, WAAAAAAAAY too long since my last update. Here is my newest poem. Hot and fresh off Word...

A Plea to the World

How could you understand this thing we share?
How could you know what it’s like to be me?
How could you get your love and care?
How could you listen when you don’t see?

This is a shout-out,
A plea to the world.
Don’t judge what you don’t understand.
My collar is beautiful,
It doesn’t hurt at all.
Don’t judge what you don’t understand.

How can you say those hurtful things?
How can you be so full of spite and hate?
How can you proclaim the hurt this brings?
How can you pretend to think it’s great?

This is a shout-out,
A plea to the world.
Don’t judge what you can’t understand.
My Master loves me.
He’d never hurt me.
Don’t judge what you can’t understand.

How do you ignore what I try to say?
How do you validate yourself?
How do you keep moving each day?
How do you put this on a dusty shelf?

This is a shout-out
A plea to the world.
Don’t judge what you won’t understand.
My life is wonderful,
I wouldn’t change it.
Don’t judge what you won’t understand.

Don’t judge me for who I am inside.
Don’t hate me for who I am inside.
Don’t ridicule me for the truth.
I cannot change the truth.

This you must learn to accept, or I’m afraid we are through.
Master and I are together forever. There’s nothing you can do.

You make good poems, but uh. I didn't get what you meant by "How could you listen when you don't see?" part. You can listen and not see lol.

~Ozy~
June 17th, 2006, 03:32 PM
Metaphorically speaking,someone who listens but does not understand.

As I said earlier, very well done, Ayame. *smiles and huggles* You did a good job with this.
