Entangled in Emotion

I am half drowned in shadows

Brought forth to the light

The empty wisp of warmth pulled out of my sight

And I am choking of loneliness

The key is yet unfound

That would stop my wandering brain from becoming unbound

And yet here I remain

In my own garden of misery, where the earth bleeds forth tulips and poppies and twain.

So walk away from the girl who is too entangled

The thoughts at her feet are broken and mangled

Her hair is so messed

Her sky isn’t blue.

And the thing she keeps telling her self isn’t true.

Darkness creeps around her

Its hands on her ankles

Pulling her down, seducing and secure.

But I keep on standing, for time is a blur.

Chasing Suns

My poem is entitled Chasing Suns and I wrote it shortly after my girlfriend broke up with me… She was my first love and is still my only love… It’s almost been eight months since she left me and I’m still madly in love… It’s really no fun :-\ anyway, here is my poem.
i hope you find some meaning in my words.

Chasing Suns
by: Lee Mintz

There exists a home

in a land undefined

By word nor by sound

a lost page of blank line

And though I may dwell

in its spacious confine

It’s a torturous existence

without your home next to mine

This landscape bleeds emotion

pools raindrops obscene

It grows salted and withered

its wounds grow unseen

I froze fast in your fire

wandered lost in between

My sweet darling ember

and our horizon pristine

Darkness descends tearing sleepless asunder

bringing a beating heart still

An infant still lives fading faster toward slumber

under walls of concrete will

No one tear shall flow from this sorrow

chasing endless suns of sanguine spill

I now live lifeless life borrowed

keeping pace with harsh words

“the end, until…”

there it is
every single line has relation to something she and I did together, something she said to me, characteristics of her, or something that happened between us and i feel that this is my best poetic work to date. i hope you agree.

 

Broken Heart

I can’t take this anymore
Its tearing me up inside
Cause you wouldn’t tell me why
So you remained a constant thought throughout my days

I hate that you are doing this
I saw you do it before
I won’t let this happen to us
You can’t push me away

You have already torn my heart in two
The damage is done
Does this even hurt you
Or will this go right through

The loneliness I fear
Is starting to draw near
Can’t be sure how I will deal
Or how this loneliness will feel

All my hopes and dreams
Have been washed away
Into a rapid flowing red stream
Created by the bleeding of my broken heart

You said yourself we could last forever
And now you can’t even see us together
I do not blame you nor am I mad
For it was I who gave his heart with no shield

I talked about our future
Only because that’s where we were headed
We talked about our past
And realized why others didn’t last

I couldn’t tell you what the future would hold
You claimed to be afraid of the unknown
But I wasn’t given the chance to ease your fears
Which is why I have begun to shed these tears

I only want you to be happy
If you can’t be happy with me then I will have to respect that
I was afraid of my heart being broken and now it has come true
I just never thought the breaking of my heart would come from you

Bleeding Skies

 

Shattered stars across the sky
like the pieces of a broken soul
remind me of days when I could fly
before I fell into the bottomless hole
I look up and cry tears of sorrow
my heart slowly freezing to ice
I wonder if I’ll wake up tomorrow
to a warmth that will feel oh so nice
Reality hits harder than ever before
God has forsaken me
I’m not to feel happy anymore
but my mind will not let it be
A dark time has set in
and i sit upon my throne
time to let the pain begin
no love to call my own
Lonely heart ever needing
I start to lower my head
the skies are bleeding
and I am dead.”
