The Smile Once Worn

Post by carndo » Wed Jul 11, 2007 10:46 am

The Smile Once Worn


Traces of love
touched in memories,
Worn out letters that once held feelings
united in silence
unplaced and forgotten,
Where is the spirit of togetherness we once had?
Does the sandman bring you dreams
upon your pillow?
Or does the echo of time
glance behind the shadow?
And if dreams come true,
Why do the tears disappear
in a rainbow lost in mystery?
A lingering glance wistful
in the undertaking,
And the smile once worn
fades into oblivion.

Come To A Point Of Agreement

Post by carndo » Wed Jul 11, 2007 10:49 am

Come To A Point Of Agreement


Why is it that
when I defend myself
you jump on the bandwagon,
Jeering, caterwalling,
And then with my back at the wall
I rage like a cornered wildcat,
Snarling at the world,
Snapping?
Why is it that
when I speak my mind,
You criticize my ideas,
Complaining, badgering,
I jump like a startled animal
defending,
Why do my dreams
matter not?
You tell me that have to live in reality,
But the child in me rages on.
So somehow we have to
come to an agreement
fulfilling the balance that we both need.

Those Revolving Doors

Post by carndo » Wed Jul 11, 2007 10:51 am

Those Revolving Doors


hose revolving doors,
Paradoxes
touching on times
parallel
to emotions gone awry,
Constant
to a perspective
sometimes
gone blind,
Drawing energy, insight and passion,
Currents
blending in and out,
Somehow getting past that wall
that we've built...
only a brick at a time,
Heal those hurts
that seem to last a lifetime,
But somehow it's a
beginning.

Where You Remain

Post by carndo » Wed Jul 11, 2007 10:57 am

Where You Remain


Where you remain
hardened by cold,
Tears touch my eyes,
Why
must the blindness
forever cut?
Frozen hard as steel,
Both unwilling to bend,
Sadness slashes
my veins
and I bleed,
Where hope once reigned
now silence forever
haunts,
And I scream,
Somehow bleakness touches
where a soul
held a glimmer,
Now a wail of woe
complains,
What happened?
Sorrow meets those ashes
hand in hand,
Shadow endures
throughout the rain.

Where are You?

Post by carndo » Wed Jul 11, 2007 10:59 am

Where are You?


Fleeting like a ghost of the past
is our love,
And why?
I'm totally confused,
Is our love like a memory?
What happened?
There are questions in my mind
that I can't seem to answer,
For I thought our love was strong,
But in many ways it doesn't exist,
aren't we close?
Or is it just a figure of my imagination?
The more I search,
The more it seems to fade away,
Like a shadow in the night,
And the pain grows,
Where are you tonight?
I need you more than ever,
At least to talk this out,
But you're gone,
But where?

Silence

Post by carndo » Wed Jul 11, 2007 11:00 am

Silence


Cut me to the quick,
Never look me in the eye,
A heart grown cold
and my soul is looking for a friend,
Met with an empty stare,
Hoping for the conversations
we once shared,
I'm looking for an answer
but the question is never asked,
Communication is completely severed
and my faith set in judgment,
a stranger sets before me,
Fear of losing you as a friend
grips my mind,
Apologies seem not to matter,
Fate seems blind,
If only...
I could find that special smile
and the warmth
we one shared.

You've Gone Away

Post by carndo » Wed Jul 11, 2007 11:02 am

You've Gone Away

All my lovely memories
faded into dreams,
Why ?
Because you're gone,
What I held most precious
disappeared into the sunset
and that was your love,
For I needed you,
But now you've gone away
and left me in my tears,
Why ?
I don't know,
You wouldn't tell,
You just packed up your bags
and went...
without even a goodbye,
I guess I'll never understand love,
It's there one moment
and gone the next day,
Aw well,
life lives on.

Youre Running Away

Post by carndo » Wed Jul 11, 2007 11:04 am

Youre Running Away

So our life together didn't suit you,
And the problems became so big
that you can't face them,
now you decide we need some distance,
Babe...
I have to be honest,
So I'm gonna tell you want I think,

You're running away,
Away from me,
The life we made together,
And most of all
our love,
It doesn't solve anything
running away,
When you come back
the problem is still there,
Are you gonna keep running?
Or are you gonna do something about it?
It's up to you,

I know,
it sounds easy
just to leave it all behind
and start all over,
But sooner or later
your past will catch up to you,
Then what will you do ?

If I've done something to you
then tell me
and we'll see if we can work it out,
If not...
then go your way,
But til then
give us a chance,
Who knows...
what we might find ?

Where Eyes Smile

Post by carndo » Wed Jul 11, 2007 11:09 am

Where Eyes Smile

A hand offered
in kindness
where eyes smile
to what is thought to be in friendship,
But somehow little things get in the way,
It mattered not what was said,
Fractured,................................................
....................Torn,..................................
Hurt,......................................................
I yearn to find that smile again
to make peace
.................find that harmony that we need
instead of that serrated wound
that's felt
in a pointless idea,
.........Somehow I listen
............................for some beginning
and leave behind
....................those harsh words
to find that twinkle
and welcome in your hello.

A Scarce Whisper

Post by carndo » Wed Jul 11, 2007 11:12 am

A Scarce Whisper

I see a reflection
in a window of the sheltered past,
Moment By moment
passes in a fraction of time,
Thoughts race
only to find
a whisper of myself,
Is it I
that finds a glimmer
of what I hoped to be?
So single minded am I
that I become lost
in those dark shadows,
Forgetting what I know
and trust,
Only to find
a scarce whisper
that craves
to be needed,
And somehow I manage to travel on.

That Vision

Post by carndo » Wed Jul 11, 2007 11:13 am

That Vision


We once had a vision
that touched with people being welcomed.
What happened?
Anymore it's about the frankenstein that we've
created....
rather than the peace & smiles that touches,
You talk of our gathering as of family,
Yet I see it...
.......................like a parent telling a child...
Well if you don't like the rules of home....
...............................................Leave!
And I say rules that makes one bleed
are not needed,
Yes...
we all need guidelines to follow,
But not when they make one afraid
like a fist raised in anger,
Our vision has been lost
behind a quagmire of turns & twists
where no one knows what's going on,
And everyone is AFRAID to ask,
You say...
.............I've lost faith in myself,
No...
It's not that,
...............I'm just tired of being forced
into doing things I'm not comfortable with,
But it's for the best!
Maybe in your eyes but not mine,
Yes...
...........I have a voice,
But you're not listening
to me
..........or to those who say something isn't right,
When people leave....
.....................we need to say...
What are we doing wrong?

Lonely Tears

Post by carndo » Wed Jul 11, 2007 11:16 am

Lonely Tears


I never thought it would happen,
I thought we loved each other
But you said goodbye
& went your own way.
Since you've gone,
I've trying to live my life,
But I'm not doing too good,
Why?
Because I'm missing you,
Yes,
I've got my lonely tears,
I still can't figure out what happened,
I thought we had something good,
But you simply got up & walked away,
Yes,
the hurt is deep inside,
And it'll take a long time for the hurt to go away,
For a long time there will be lonely tears,
Why did you do this?
Why couldn't we talk about it?
Did you think I would just hold on?
I would have given your freedom,
If you would have asked,
Instead you left me in my misery
and left me in my lonely tears.

Reflections Within My Mind

Post by carndo » Wed Jul 11, 2007 11:17 am

Reflections Within My Mind


and I'll be damned if I'll allow those demons to have control...
yes...
I see them jeer and laugh at me
while tears roll down my face
but I'm in charge of this journey....
fool they call me
but it's only the fool..
if I allow them referee the game..
what game?
the game of life indeed my friend
should I go out in a whimper?
I think not!
everyday I look in those reflections and see my face
and just when I'm ready to give up..
I see smiles that somehow need me...
so why should i give them the satisfaction?
why indeed?
think positive...
life can be two roads...
one that can be hell...
day by day
or one that can be joyful...
and continue on
what matters is that i do
yes...
the rage eats me alive at times
but I look at this way
what doesn't kill me
makes me even stronger!
so demons...
bring it!
and I'll laugh and jeer at you for once!

One can hear the voices cry

Post by carndo » Wed Jul 11, 2007 11:20 am

One can hear the voices cry

One can see the rage in one's eyes
the pain in one's heart
a shattering of dreams
why?

One can hear the voices cry
the tears and the shying echoes

again


why?

I can say this
violence is not the answer

walk away
it matters not who's right or wrong
only the anger stops
the more you feed it
the more it will consume you
again why?

when nightmares start over and over
creating the chaos
in troubled lives
one wonders
only this
why?

tragic flaw

Post by carndo » Wed Jul 11, 2007 11:22 am

tragic flaw

YOU
who hides behind false reasons
and try to touch what you can't understand about me
so instead you try raise my ire?
fool you think that's wise?
I sit under the shadows waiting for you to lower your guard
then cold revenge will find its place
when you least expect it
tasting your fear
while I have the last laugh
as you run away like the coward that you are
Run!
I'll tell you what...
I'll even give you a head start
then I'll hunt you down like the prey that you are
so go and hide while you can
but look behind every shadow
because my friend you'll never know WHEN I will strike

then we'll see who is laughing last
