“I Want To Hold You”

“A Poems Starts With One Line”
By Madison Taylor
13th January 2009

“Confronting something
and not quite knowing
yet what it is.”
- Italo Colvino

A poem starts with one line – one word
Thoughts forming with speed
The words coursing through
Causing fingers to bleed

Out through the veins
of the finger with speed

Each stroke that remains
Shows meaning inside
Searching for purpose
A stamp on one’s pride

Approval granted
Pass out gold stars
Send in the next one
Let’s get to the end

Wherever that takes us
To the world on the bend
The words are released
Time to start over again

“The Writer First”
By Madison Taylor
6th January 2009

I am the writer
I am the reader
Crossing the finish
To win first prize

Learning understanding
What the words are saying
Separate then joined
Going from one
To understanding
To none

And nothing
Being
Without meaning
Questioning it All

No bears to witness
The senses are raw
Deciding what real is

If not
Life holds no meaning
What then are we
A being never in tomorrow?

© madison taylor 2008

Written while under the influence
Of the Mad Hatter
Do the best to translate
Or go with the meaning
The Non-Senses share in explanation

“If She Truly Loved Me”
By Madison Taylor
30th December 2008

May be a poem
May be prose
Haven’t decided
What I’m writing yet
It will be about love
It will be about her

I can feel the pain
Of missing her
Wanting her arms
To surround me
Even in my fantasy
She quickly pulls away

In reverse reflection
Her hands reach toward me
She touches my face
Our eyes connect in vision
In a moment broken
Safeness returns

The small hesitation
Drives my mind to sight
Seeing her lightly
Brush back my hair
I know it is short
And her touch a gesture

Her fingertips
Caress the edges
Toward the way
We could be
If she truly loved me
And freedom were free

“Me Loving You”
By Madison Taylor
23rd December 2008

Me
Loving you?
How does the love
Get through?

We are separate
In ideas & feelings
Understanding life
What gives us meaning

We are different
Not enough noticing
Just how much
Holds between us

It pulls us together
The truth in our words
Now silence
Falls beneath us

My hand reaches out
Touches drift away

My Love has chosen
It’s offered freely
Waiting for acceptance
Instead you walk away

Not knowing
Who stands before you
Could it be your Soul Mate
Secret Dreams called to life

I am
Finished wanting
I’m ending it
Inside a Proposition

Will you
Let me love you?

Maybe you
will love me?

Someday
Sometime
Somewhere
Too

“Screaming Out What’s Real”
By Madison Taylor
16th December 2008

Screaming
Releasing the danger
Of the Real
Out Loud
Everyone will listen
It all is quite distracting
But they will not hear
What is meant by Real

No one knows what is Real
It isn’t what we Feel
That makes a “Thing” Real
It isn’t what we See
That’s going to set us Free

We are owned
By the World
In which we live in
Eyes watching every move
Following our dreams
We willingly send them
Out into cyberspace
Without regret

After all
What possibly can happen
If “They” know
What “They” think
“They” know
None of it is Real
It’s a metamorphosis of Time
Playing It’s game of Illusions

We are Chess Pieces
Closing in on Check Mate
When the Game is Over
It ALL Starts Again

What Is Your Next Move?
If You Would Like To Begin Again

Endings into Beginnings
Endlessly…infinity symbol small

“Say Goodbye To Love”
By Madison Taylor
2nd December 2008

Say goodbye to love
The hardest pain to feel
Being left alone in the dark
Lovers and friends
Always heading a way
Scattering the fields of earth
Planting ideas for nurturing
Watching their future grow
Into tomorrow’s perspectives

The present is fulfilling
Gorging on imagination
A pathway forward
Overflowing and inviting
The Muse a constant inspiration

Follow her serendipitously
A yet unsculpted “Angel”
Crying out to be released
Only wanting to be protective
A Guardian to serve what she believes

Giving guidance and understanding
Listen for the quiet in her voice
Nothing to fear in the mysterious
Often the unknown is more secure
Than the known that causes pain

“Pushing the Limits”
By Madison Taylor/jkm
18th November 2008

Want to see how far
I can push the limits
to my honesty…

It’s necessary for me
to open up this door
with steel bolted lock cutters.

No one was allowed
in that special room
but me.
I kept all the real secrets
hidden there.

I knew when I was there,
I felt my deep love
for someone
who was also a girl
that felt the way
I did.

No man’s hand
on me
ever felt good
except once

an abuser
did something
to my body
I hadn’t expected.

Reason was
I never knew
such a feeling
existed.

That day
he stole away
my innocence.
The best feelings
a woman or young girl
can ever experience

and an abuser
possesses it
now.

He has taken it
and locked it away
in his unimaginative mind.

I fantasized many times
how I would seek
my revenge on him
and steal
my innocence back.

I was going
to stalk him
the way he did me
and the animals
he hunted
and killed

I wanted to turn
that around on him
and stalk him
making him
the hunted
and I would be
the hunter
who took him down.

It was
a repetitious fantasy.
I have never
forgotten a moment
of seeing him
inside my head
the satisfaction I felt
imagining
taking him out
from this world

Far away
from harming me further
or harming anyone else ever.

“When the Poison Is Gone a Dagger Will Do”
by Madison Taylor
4th November 2008

When the poison is gone
A dagger will do
Love is meant to be true

As feelings are accepted
Emotions lead us toward the subjective
No rational perceptions in here

Why do we carve our hearts?
Love?
Is it really so powerful a drug?
Love?

So blindly accepting our fate
When the poison is gone
A dagger will do

Time to join my beloved
What little of life left here
What love has offered is empty

Broken in pieces
Twisted up with death
Disentangled and blasted by fire

Where do I go from here
All destroyed by delusions not clear
Losing the love I hold dear

Dreams caught us up in the wind
Always needing recreation
Beginning memories at the end

They are more alive when awakened
Careening and leaning out wide
Screaming till the end of the ride

“don’t lose IT now”
poem by madison taylor
21st october 2008

seeing all
in a moment
IT now disappears

never again
no repairs
IT effects what remains

into the whole
IT assimilates
one entity
aware of infinity

IT remembers
IT is
the only one

of the multiplicity
IT is
in one whole

controlling
every action
and reaction

in the infinite
space beyond time
as universes expand

IT is Alive
IT is an Anomaly
IT has a Propensity for Quirkiness
a singularity for peculiar Uniqueness

IT has transcended
no return requested

Maleficent
Poem by Madison Taylor
9th September 2008

 Never will I forget you, my love.

Love Simply Love
[All Is Love]
By Madison Taylor
9th September 2008

An opening of my heart
Taking you into the warmth
Covering you in soft pleasure
Surrounding you with strength

Barriers descending slowly
Unsure of sanity
Brief the moment of madness
Hijacking reality

Pain came surging through
Pulling apart the tenderness
Making me stone-cold inside
Chills covering the heat

Wanting passions of love
Feelings rising up within
Flesh of my body responding
To the depth you are touching me

Freely I give myself over
Opening all of me to you
I give this gift do as you wish
The safe word is no

(c) mandy two-zero-zero-eight
