Staying Strong (Written 1/31/2001)

Posted in Batt Rantts with tags , , , , on April 4, 2016 by shebatt

I weep for the pains of the past
Where I had to stand strong and
there was no time for tears
I weep for the years

I sing the song of sorrow
For all the broken hearts
when love was unrequited
there was only to go on
I sing the saddest song

I mourn the loss of those
who were dear and when
the longing of the company
had not completely sunk in
I mourn for those who have been

I ache for the transgressions of man
for killing their brothers
in the name of borders, money, and God
watching nations fall
I ache for the woes of how we’ve evolved.

 

If I’d Only Known to Stay Away From You

If I’d only known
the moment I shook your hand it
would change my life

You brought a new sense of joy to my world

If I’d only known
the long conversations we had
would lead to a flirtation

You made me feel desired again

If I’d only known
the first time we kissed
would lead me to wanting more

You sparked lost passion in my soul

If I’d only known
a night of passion with you
would warm my heart again

You made me love you against my wishes

Life

Posted in Batt Rantts with tags , , on August 15, 2013 by shebatt
I have lived lifetimes in a moment
profound and fleeting
glimpses of universes
on a distant event horizon
commanding to me to live on.
.
In the magic of a new love’s kiss
in the despair of a love departed
wisdom comes to me
lost but not forgotten
in the next adventure.

Memories, a bitter taste on the tongue
making the next beginning
sweet and welcome
finger tips on a forehead
the exchange of knowledge
if I could give my visions to you with a touch.

We cherish the sentiment
cling to the anger, numb the pain
dream of warm summer days
and the purity of new fallen snow
but we feel the radiate warmth or the bitter cold
in our memories.

Learning the same lesson again and again
in order to let it go
we must learn to look into the face of darkness
and walk away
we must feel the bliss of copulation
and awaken the next day.

Life moves on around us
whether we choose to move or not
it propels us forward
do we steer the course
or hide in the dark.

Feel all it has to offer
let it warm you, wound you,
excite you and bring its anguish
let it send you head long racing toward the grave
But never lie in the darkness of the soil knowing you never lived

Just another poem from my past

A morning filled with regret
and my past cascades around me
in a deluge of reminders of how I got here.

I can still smell you on my body
and I feel the effects of sleeplessness
after a night of erroneous passion.

We’ve all done stupid things in our lives
I seam to have mastered relishing in them.
You would think I’d learned.

But lust and need take over better judgment
and for one moment I feel desired
and some how the regret seams worth it.

Missing you

Posted in 1 with tags , , on January 14, 2010 by shebatt

Every now and again your ghost touches my heart.
And I find myself crying before I can choose not to.
My soul wants to break free to reach out and embrace you but my heart is afraid it will reach you, and I will miss you all the more when I have to let go.

I know you will haunt me forever and I would not have it any other way. Knowing a world without you is knowing a world without music or beauty or love, a place I would never survive.

But I trudge on, hoping I will see you beyond the grave hoping you are waiting there for me. Waiting to embrace me again as a love as a friend and as part of my soul.
