View Full Version : momentum vs. the gravity plan

Dec 18, 2002, 06:53 PM
i decided that gravity is to blame for most of my problems...

our momentum never stood a chance
underneath gravity's plan
you're hopes and knees - everything
eventually yields to pulling fields

you can only go oh, so fast
before it all returns to light and ash!!

go, slowly, now
less momentum to slow me down
your hopes and knees bend
just like everything else in the plan
well, time bends light,
and that bends everything in sight!

you can only go, oh so fast
before it all returns to light and ash!!

le coeur supplicie

they can tell you to keep your mouth closed, dear
but you still control the atmosphere -

so we'll make a pact in Aire
cause its hard to always be all there
when we've grown thin over the years
sometimes its hard for me to be all here

so if you hold your breath
i'll gasp and end your threat
and if i need a rest
will you be short on breath?

hey, its allright
we might
be goddamned
but now
we're one in fate
and when your heart aches
my lungs shake!

And your smile rattles my teeth.... my teeth

electric current returning
alternating to no end
life has burned out so long ago
traded in their souls for a softer glo
....and said,

oh! how great!!
to be awake!!!
i was living half a life
for god's sake!!

your first mistake
was falling in love with
what only takes
it gets to be too much
when the love of my life
keeps me from closing my eyes

forever in
this brightened room
is dimmer than you think...

(are you alright? you don't look so good..)

wait a minute!
fool moon in my living room
this town is ghosted
you showed us

Jan 21, 2003, 08:26 PM

Hangin round
the outskirts of town,
a clear but distant dispondance.

I stare at the black
after you've passed,
search for any correspondance.

By unnatural light
i see the satellite,
cut a crease across the sky.

I only close my eyes
and i'm right by your side,
up in the night.

I'm not sure i belong,
in your world or mine,
because it's been too long,
i just want to find
my way

....And i feel like i'm floating thru space

Jan 21, 2003, 08:31 PM

I guess I'll have this fascination for now
It's always stars and mars to calm me down
A grounded, polarized end for me
Consistantly fighting gravity

We'll put our helmets on
when we go out in the sun
Because sun-light
stops time,
And if we're holding hands
and if your Heart can stand it,
We'll turn to molecules
to two tiny fools
Who did not know
what'd they'd got into

Jan 22, 2003, 06:27 PM
Wow, these are good. They seem so heart felt. I really dont know what else to say. Do you intend them to be poems or songs, cause they seem to fit into both genres.

Jan 22, 2003, 07:53 PM
thank you very much Dscythe http://www.pso-world.com/psoworld/images/phpbb/icons/smiles/icon_biggrin.gif yes they are both. they are songs but i keep them as poems as well. i play and sing(can it be called that?singing?lol) in a band and all these are song's lyrics but usually i write the poem or lyric ideas and music seperate and somehow my subconscious knows they will fit together. it baffles me but it works lol. thanks again death for your compliment http://www.pso-world.com/psoworld/images/phpbb/icons/smiles/icon_smile.gif

feel free to contribute to this tread if u like. i loves me some poetry http://www.pso-world.com/psoworld/images/phpbb/icons/smiles/icon_razz.gif

Motion Sickness

A man unsettled tends to travel only at night
All signs of life have faded from from sight
Every inconsistency passes under this ride
It's the only thing that matters at this point in time

Dashboard compass points to true Forever
Seperate destinations can't be reached whether
Or not you are headed there together

We come to a rest stop
We stop - rest - stop
Strapped in this backseat
Trapped in this road heat
the Asphalt boils me (into sickness)
It cooked our car!! And said,
"Go Home!!!" but

Dashboard compass points to true Forever
Seperate destinations can't be reache whether
Or not you are headed there together

but He motions us on.....we go on
And we're just going thru motions to tired to yawn
They say, "Hey, all this moving's made ill. Why don't you just come home?"
"Yeah, you know, you're right....but I gotta get going."

Five Short Poems

*indecision held her silent
the instant stretched out
for no end-
the moment tore, rustling ashes
of her abscence

*dream unyolked
dares melt memories,
where flecks carved of
fondest embracing,
rose-purple weeps,
must rummage
quivering where reality crumbled

whispering women's laughter
gently retreating
sudden fingers found flesh
drinking deliscious desire

*we've been warned about this thing
called Love,
you'll fall too far and it will never
be enough.

*propelling emotions forget of perfect meeting
knowing waves gently beating off desire
bringing love down

Mars Hall

How do you know when you've gone insane?
One day you wake up not the same.
Why are you looking at me that way?
Is it something I did or should not say?

Something's different, something's not right
Maybe I'll figure it out after tonight
I think I might crack
or Maybe i already have...

the night stretches on in my head
like clockwork time falls apart
thoughts stretch on for eons
(and i just walked into oblivion)

and i suspect that you are still dreaming
dreaming dreams i sent from me to you
reaching for the door,
and vanish into you;

i'm in your mind-
you're in my mind-
I am inside your mind!!
I am not myself anymore

(i sat next to madness and when i got up to go to the bathroom he asked me Why? with a grin on his face that said he thought I was the crazy one)

Jan 24, 2003, 06:22 PM

No mouth to speak of
Just made from parts
Slick blood
Thru a licked heart

tells me, "Lets go have lunch in the park!"
"I want to feel all the stars,
pulling my conscience apart!"

Half-hearted or God Damn

he said

In a God,
I want someone to talk with-
On a walk,
I want someone to play God with-

he said

Aren't you the Son of Man? Oh!Man!!
I've felt like I have always known your hand.
You sent signals through light bulbs,
Flashed signals to my skull...
...all of the time.

Reflected/reversed - Oh!No!!
Told off, sold short and cursed.
Now out of the air a parallel Me - Oh!God!!
What will become of my Heart?

Half a Heart?!? Damn!!
From the inside out,
A half-hearted, God Damn,
twist of doubt.

(rotten people) You & Me

You and me
we go together
Like candy and meat, like mice and traps
but we go together

You're everything
coated and sweet,
I'm all about substance, I'm all about protein

You and me,
we go together
From here to there, but we go together

You stay inside
and peek out a window,
If it is too bright, I will let you know
if the wheather man lied

And so we'll shut all the windows
down tight,
and besides i just opened the door just the other night,
i dont think i'll venture a venture this time

but we'll go together

This is something i put together awhile ago while being bored and thinking. Its not great, but im to self conscious of my work.

Not Alone

As the night time stars stare down at me,
I gaze up and try to see,
All my lost friends and family,
Then I know, I'm not alone?

The spring's cool breeze blows through my hair,
The summer's sun warms without a care,
The winter's snow falls here and there,
But once again, I'm not alone?

Family who have past with time,
Friends forgotten since the age of nine,
I cared for them, they once were mine,
But I still know, I'm not alone?

Fate's cruel dice have thrown me foul,
I sit here alone, as of now,
But I don't care why or how,
I know deep down, I'm not alone?

Friends and Family now come to me,
Long lost friends now I see,
I now am here with loved family,
And now I am, not alone.

i live my life in shambles
so that you may watch both candle ends
reach their end long before the sun goes down

the lights all but burned itslef out
and im all but burned out on the light itself
so i called them man down at The Company
to shut the power that brings the sun to me

is this is? what is left?....for me...

i have seen heaven and felt
its warmth encumber me
from head to to toe, hindering my movements
weighting limbs, thoughts and memories
from head to toe / heart to soul
till the warmth turns from warm
to the current state of things, all things
until it just IS, it has been, always

i have been to Hell and stayed
just long enough
for it to seem like home,
to recognize a part of myself
in my surroundings,
to have felt urges, uncontrollable,
to feel this world move
under my collapsing will-
i have stayed just long enough
to know it exists.

alone under indefinite blue skies;
or amouthfull of traquilizers;
the angels are the neighbors-
the monsters are already here-
death rings the telephone.

Protecting Yourself with Time and Space

Protect myself with time and space,
Ive got so much, should be giving it away.
But you're not like me, everyone is against me
Pressed up bodies, pressing up against me.

Pressed up bodies pressing up against me,
Dressed up bodies pressing up aclosely.
Pressed down bodies pressing up against me,
Dressed down, hardly, everyone is against me.

Everyone want to know what I'm thinking-
Everyone thinks they know what I'm thinking-

~Slow my pace and push you away~
We protect ourselves with time and space
Infinite, the Universe, when distance is the case
~Slow my pace and push you away~

Smashing Glass

lucky you, you have it all
and you want me to(o)
stay with you, but i
just can't do it.
if i had it my way, i would come from
far far far away
that way i'd never know you,
and i'd never have
to say goodbye...

i'll meet you, whenever i
am feeling blue
and everytime, we'll talk about
all the things we like.
if i had it my way, i would come from
far far far away
that way i'd never know you,
and i'd never have
to say goodbye...

And i will miss you,
because i can't go with you,
and i will miss you,
whenever i think of you.
And when your Sun passes on,
i'll remember every single word you ever said to me.

Old Young Man

And you can change the sky
into anything you want,
and you wont...

Just dont loose your mind
when you're staring way to hard,
oh so hard...

Because i can't be
breathing so much of this
recycled air,

Or i'll end up
too old to be young or care,
and my mind won't care...

i know i'm not the only one

I know i'm not the only one
who feels way to old to be this young.
Connect to what I've
been imagining all this time.
If it is in your head
when you fall to sleep,
It will stay there and slowly, slowly
that is what you will be.

Feb 17, 2003, 06:36 PM
we met last night

you came as snapshots
in my thoughts, as
hearts often hope
to meet years ago
in connections, in lives not their own

but we, the us that is now
met in connections of
hearts in hope,
for revealing
the connections in lives not our own,
the unuterableness of connection...
....living lives not our own

I hear my words through your ears,
I listen closely and your blood pumps my veins,
My fingertips give you oxygen, and
I synthesized unknown particles,
years ago beamed about by
a small girl to another heart,
a life not her own.

user soundboard

my mouth moves, but
covered ears
just hear only your words
spill out-
your eyes cast downward in focus
they shift when hardly noticed
that i turned the volume all the way down
and nothng comes out.

i'd rip out the wires
but you'd ask me why, and
how long it will take to mend them-
so i pull hte plug and walk
away, volume left low
your mouth moves,
my dust is unsettled by yr

Scam and Gloom

I'm dirty, i clamor of the sreet
my stride just feels unclean
but it looks as if im your king

it's (way) to late, to think about being saved

Left out to dry and drown
by the man Upstairs who keeps starching
mother's nightgown

i looked around, and i owned this town
i left my marker of the kitchen counter

i seethe of disaters -
Saints and Sinners waiting on the Masters
i keep praying, praying for disasters-
Saints and Sinners scatter for the rafters

just to let you know
i scammed the light from your halo
so from where i'm standing at
you're dim like me and your shadows black

Feb 26, 2003, 05:47 PM
I Won a Trip Into Space

See me shatter
into nothing
as i
climb the sky

See the laughter
in my eyes
as you
try not to cry

I left you all behind, and
I don't know just what awaits, and
I can't promise that i'll be back, but
If i do it won't be sooner than late.

Feb 26, 2003, 05:54 PM

Well, it's well past Noon
and you still refuse
to use your tongue

And you sit around
and watch the sun go down
and dream for days

Well, then you watch the Moon
and it's watching you
and dreaming for days

When you're livin low
and all your gifts have lain to waste
it is just your way
of telling the world to its face
that you've given up-
you've given up-
you've given up-
but you still dream...

Feb 26, 2003, 08:28 PM
those are pretty good, but the excessive use of "!" kind of made them look strange to me. Oh well, its just a small thing. Good job.

Letter to Self

7 years & 7 years

It took seven years, just to get here
it was finally beggining
and finally over
All at once
And everything i thought i was
were merely reflections
in the mirror
All at once
Everything took a revolution
around realization
And all at once
It was the longest day
of the year
And all at once
It was the longest moment
of my existence

And all at once
the mirror slipped
my hand
Shattered glass
and a splintered

A Calling

Stars fly South for the season of all seasons to be had in magnetic fields across this distant hole. Big enough to engulf minds with the presence of running in the direction against progress. This hole is society. Changing, shaping, alwayssearching for the next possible outlet for frustration at their own faults and imperfections. Calously taking it out on those passersby, guilty of no more than the accusor. Blast, blimey and buttons!!! Enough! Take back yourself. Do not cave under the pressures, but set up pillars of hope and self-worth. Society is hole. If you want to make a difference, fill this hole with the dead of the UnMarked. Rampage! Riot!! Until they are bloody and driven back to rot out their existence in the hole they created and once loved. They are still a society, and as a society they will watch as shovelfull by shovelfull they are covered up, a society no more. This is MAN vs. ANTMAN. This is
A Calling.

I Spend All My Time Hoping,
For Your Sake and My Own

every night ends in hoping that
the next day might....

every day shines a little sadder when
i miss the sun come up

so i take everything i can from
everything that is Heaven and Evil

and for a moment the fog was

and i have stared at the sun
until i owned it

and i fall forever and it seems forever ago as you
watch me from that ledge of that cliff of Me that you
sad i wouldn't ever jump off of, and your face grows smaller against an ever growing plain of abruptness of an end and i fall forever and it seems forever ago....and all that i can think is i told you it would be a nice breeze.
