Lusting the passions of a secret desire
Unwinding the mystery of my needs
Funerals are for the future
Internment I ask be deferred
Timeless is my youth
Useless is my request
At seeking eternity or at least eternal rest
End of times may seem long away
Beauty we know fades, it will happen some day

So I dream of youthful moments
Isle graveyards were far away

Holy wars and loveless scores
That a soldier must endure
A desire for peace escapes this generation and more
External forces and internal woes
Death dances at my door

Dedicated to Sara Bernhardt, who slept in her coffin amongst all her love letters.

I Died in Her Teardrops

The Iraqi desert was blowing wind
The bullet tore into my heart
My Commander, she had but one arm
She pulled me to the ground
Holding me tight she saw
I would not make the night
So she did what any lover would
She held me tight
Whispered, "soldier I am with you till the end"
My last thought
Was I died in her arm
As her tears drops mixed with mine

Moving On

I'm not sure if I should be angry
But I think I'm supposed to act sad 
On the day, I heard of your passing
All I know, is for ME, it was bad
Your family can't stop their weeping
Your friends were all glad, it's not them
And shortly we'll all get together
To sing you an old, but short hymn
Soon they will bury your body
But I will not visit your grave
'Cause I know, you are still in existence   
And no longer one of us slaves 
But the reason I think I am angry
Is not that you left me just bones
Is that you went to the next life without me
Leaving me stuck here alone

Keeping My Mind

I know what is to become of this frame,
But I don't know how it will get there.
Heart attack?  Cancer?  Hit by a train?
The causes are endless and oft unfair.

The "how" of my demise I can't arrange
Nor can other mortals the same as me.
I wish, however (don't think it strange)
To make to my Maker an urgent plea.

`Tis this:  Don't let me lose my mind.
Visit me with every ill known to be.
Rack me with whatever doctors find.
But my mind, dear God, leave it free.

I know it's brash to make this request.
Who am I to dabble with things divine?
Perhaps then it's best to simply suggest
Please, Lord, let me keep my mind.

Grief and Loss

Loss, the parting
 Leaving grief’s dark depth
Acceptance is knowing 
Nothing will change
Love then drizzles light on
Memories that allow us to move forward

A Leaving

What should we name the death of family members or close friends? 
These are not mere departures like a vacation or extended trip; as we know we will see them again. 
These are heartbreaking and gut wrenching, with all loss of contact. They are no longer in our life.  The name to best describe it is A Leaving.

A Leaving

When she died, the quiet of it all
As machines went silent
Taking a last loving look
While weeping bitter tears
Contemplating the beauty of her life well lived
Always to remain in memory
Missing and grieving her for countless years
Yet, finding no comfort.

Destruction of love

My Heart is torn out, beats it's last and then no more,

My love stands over me, as I lay on the floor.

She did it, She Killed me, by leaving me a broken man,

Assasinated by my Lover's hand.

She once filled my heart with laughter and song,

She once comforted and loved me all the day long.

Only  secretly cavorting, a plan to steal,

To destroy, to rent out, all I could feel.

It is torn out, beats it's last and then no more,

My love stands over me, as I lay on the floor.

She did it, She Killed me, by leaving me a broken man,

Assasinated by my Lover's hand.

You're leaving

 I find these days my pleasures few.
As your leaving has struck me down.
My heart cannot start anew.
I find these days, my pleasures few.
I find me searching for a truth.
Since they placed you in the ground.
I find, these days my pleasures few.
As your leaving has struck me down.

Letting go

Letting go of you
It hurt's me to let you go
But it's for the best

Yeh khaalipan

Jab Meri Bechaini Mit Jayegi
Jab Mere Dilko Sukoon Mil Jayega
Yeh Khaalipan Mit Jayega

Do Pal Ki Chandni Ke Liye
Aj Bhi Zinda Hoon Main
Meri Khaamoshi Ke Ageh Aasmaan Bhi Khatam Ho Jayega

Kehne Ke Liye Toh Roz Marta Hoon Main
Thoda Aur Marne Ke Liye
Yeh Deewana Kal Phir Ayega

Final Adieu

Final Adieu

Let another sun set,
Let another flower wilt,
Let another autumn cast its gloom,
Let another tear role,
As ye part, and bid
The final adieu.

An Early Wind

You will go from earth to sky for this sweet reunion.
lie softly Precious Traveler, suffer not. 


blue Mother Moon shall open an early wind 
and gently blow you home.

Heavenly Nevermore

The sun has learned
to nevermore interfere 

with the moon 
and its stars

To give it a whole world
because the sun

doesn't need to stand in the way,
when it has free reign 
of the entire universe.

Dialogue of Souls

Best of friends, for countless years,
we had the best of times.
Now as my eyes are filled with tears,
your soul to Heaven climbs.
The path we take, not always clear,
I feel so lost without you here.
Your last words, prophetic now,
“I’ll be home soon”- you knew somehow.
You left me here, I’m so alone,
but I dreamed Heaven had a phone.
We talked all night, you fell asleep,
I held the line to hear you breathe…

Thank You, But I'm Leaving

Thank you to everyone that has seen my poems,
But I have to tell you now, I am leaving.
This place isn't for me, it's not where I belong,
So please just carry on. 

I'm sorry if my poetry did not satisfy you,
I tried my best with everything I had.
But it seems my words weren't up to standards,
So my voice is going unheard. 

I'm sorry for annoying you with a petty rant,
But I just want to prove a point in this world.
To know that I am accepted in this place,
To know that I am home.

So thank you once more,
For everything you've done. 
But I have to go now,
Please carry on.

Last Kiss

Open your eyes to the ever turning skies 
I want to here with me through the night 
My heart yearns into your soul 
Burning as if newly lit coal 
I bravely submerg the embers 
That the time I have can be spent with you 
And I remember each kiss every moment 
I was caught in your love that for just this day I remember 
So what happened was a chance for your love 
A time that I kept in a locket tied with a kiss 
 I wanted you to feel, to love, to slumber 
And to awake in my arms with that times kept bliss 
I lay silient in an umber

Only then you're done,
when you end the ending;
leave the closure to others,
that way it's much more fun.

Categories: death, desire, faith, forgiveness, leaving, paradise, universe,


In the middle of this universe I stand, hoping someone will take my hand
In the middle of this universe I stand, in this beautiful dreamland
In the middle of this universe I stand, looking for faith I demand
In the middle of this universe I stand, it's so hard to understand
In the middle of this universe I stand, not looking for a grandstand
In the middle of this universe I stand, will God take my hand.

Yet Another Reflection

I rend asunder and
Crumble into dust
Before my very eyes.

No answers forthcoming
To my many questions,
Most important, "Why?"

"A fool are you,"
I stand thinking.
"There is no disguise."

To worry so about
What matters not
In the by and by.

Trials have strengthened.
Sorrows kept me human.
No point to analyze.

"Life is for living,"
An ultimate truth
I finally realized.

Sooner than later
Might have been better,
Had only I been wise.

I rend asunder and
Crumble into dust....
A twinkle in my eye.

Minutes tick
Calendar pages turn
Decade to decades
The time of appointment
The soul clutches
Death arrives

First and Last Kiss

Atop the road by the sea
Thou confessed thy affection for me
By a kiss as thy language of love
Ebbed from the copious desire thou have

A kiss from thee, my first love,
Something at last I have
My first love; my first kiss
I didn’t expect I’ll miss

‘Twas a kiss of farewell
For my love will depart and travel
Didn’t know when we’ll meet again
But I’m hoping it’ll happen

Though it’s heartbreaking,
I have to accept the pain I’m feeling.
The first and last kiss we had
Is the first and last kiss we’ll have?

between tick and tock

I am here
then gone 
in a split second

a short duration of time 
that seems beyond time 
like the duration of time it takes 
a bouncing ball
at the very very top of the bounce
to start descent 

no more tricks or treats for me
no more ticks or tocks 
but me 
caught floating 
for one very very long duration of time
between tick and tock

an invisible hawk
circles an invisible tree

Poem Details | by Ngoc Nguyen |

To Calliope, Chief of the Nine Muses

My muse sighs and leaves me unwell
     and cuckolds me like faithless love
as if she's ne'er my god or belle,
afflatus or creative breath 
     who came from the summits above
to save me from poetic death!
"Why go, O Calliope!?" I yell;

her leaving brings about such woe
and inexpressible sorrow
     that's too profound, too deep to tell:
I pray to Zeus I'll never know
     this Melancholia of hell!
My muse sighs and takes leave of me,—
I yell, "Why go, O Calliope!?

We are meant to be together

no wonder how much u deny, 

u would still love me, 

no wonder u say its over, 

your heart betrays u, 

no wonder how much distance u keep, 

but u are the closest to my heart, 

no wonder how much u say u don't care, 

but when i need u are always their, 

no wonder you say u are dangerous, 

i say u are gorgeous, 

no wonder u parted and said we cant be together, 

i say we parted so we can end together
