Okay this ones especially for Whispers, geek and man of many talents, one being Poetry (though he'd never admit to it) doesn't have to be about ghosts, but i'm sharing mine which happens to be about love in the here and beyond....double dog dare ya Whispers*wink*wink*

This one has been excepted into publication in the UK, hope ya like it cause i'll cry if ya don't,lol

IN MEMORY

They stood together in silence
in moonlight, at the garden's gate
Listening t the night birdsing
a song of love to his mate

Of all the sweetest days we have known
this moment will be our end
A single tear streamed his cheek
Loving, as i shall never love again

How their souls yearned for the past
when the future went untold
He drew from off his withered hand
the hoop of anniversary gold

Our love lives on, he whispered
their lips meet and time stood still
Their hands intertwined together
so I leave you my heart forever

His hands slipped from hers
he faded away too soon
And the moon that once set for her
now shone lovingly on his tomb

Cool topic, Hon ;)'Tis beautiful, Milady Willow and I thankee for the honour, but in all comely truth, I think you're the better of the two of us :P At least it gives me something to aspire to...well, that and I'm a sucker for a double dog dare ;D ;)

                        Desert Wind
I toss upon a fakir's bed of nails,
cocooned by sweltering blanket of Santa Ana's heat.
The heavy pall of valley's stale air
silenced ceiling fan's drowsy murmuring.

Sea-foam green silk sheets,
stained and twisted by sweat's patina clings,
a flaccid tentacle wrapped about my ankles,
chain me to the reality of your absence.

I hear your words within feverish wind,
moan against the caress of your whisper.
My thoughts a Pandora's box of buried emotions,
exhumed.

A thousand words of longing's sorrows
stumble,
a herd of spastic gazelle,
leaps drunkenly from my tongue.

I merge my grief with Coyote's,
howling lament for lost love,
but in understanding
we were able to let go.

C'mon, Guys! I know there are poets here!

Does anyone know of a publishing site, I've done the poetry.com thing and while they've published me, there are poets that have gotten other offers and while the one poet this has happened to is incredibly talented as an artist, I'm wondering why my inbox isn't crowded with strokes (communists!)

 :oWHAT WHAT WHAT!!! Hey, I've never EEEEEEVER backed down from a double dog dare, Miss Willow ;) I'd go for the music myself, I did vocals and wrote lyrics for our garage band The Offenders before we got stupid with stuff like royalties and the like (we had one gig), I'm willing to do back up vocals

Speaking of that, Flying or Moon, how would you feel about wearing spandex and a David Lee Roth wig ;D

Rock On!

I was published through Poetry.com as well in one of their anthologys probably 5 or 6 years ago The poem was called[glow=red,2,300]Loves Lament[/glow]

But I think I'll share one with you now.
its called Why Do You Cry?[glow=green,2,300]Update:12/22/2003!! I just got published internationally through Noble House of London with this poem. :o ;D[/glow]

[glow=red,2,300]Why Do You Cry?

 We never do the things we used to do  
no matter how hard I try.
Instead now  when I look at you
you just begin to cry.

I tell you I love you everyday and  
you never blink an eye.
When I reached out and touched your  
hand you jerked and began to cry.

I'd gladly take back all I've done and
make those tears run dry.
Your face is just a mournful stare as  
you begin to cry.

I watched you look through our pictures
something caught my eye.
You looked through our old wedding photos
you smiled instead of cried.

As I knelt down to hold you  
your smile ran to hide.  
The paper that you read explained  
the day that I had died.

The memory came flooding back
I hung my head and sighed.
I held you, kissed you one
last time as we began to cry.
