Cordell Rich Poems
The Snowflake And The Candle
Candles sizzle and pop In an angry and desperate struggle. Each snowflake fights and leans
And I Go On
You spill into my dreams, Intrude into my days. You come into my thoughts, A pause in the cold wind.
Puddles Of Madness
I wanted more from you than you even had. How does a man fall so hard and become so blind. Is it because of a darkness inside of you, That some how blinds me?
I have been lonely before. Listing between friends. Going through the motions again and again. Adding the moments together,
I'll never cry again because I've lost you. Because my heart would break, And my soul would run dry
Please don't let him steal you away. Please don't kiss him with those lips. Why would you hold his hands with your delicate hands? Please don't laugh and lean on him as you walk.
Cerberus The Abuser
He dips in and out of the flames, Tempting the fires of fate. He flies by many names. And his sight engenders hate.
You Didnt Think So
Ive touched your hand, Your hair, Your cheek to my cheek. Felt the warmth of
Your kiss lies there Waiting for my lips to draw from you Quivering breaths
Do You Think Me Mad
Do you think me mad That I should love you so. And wait here day by day Have you seen me standing alone
tomorrow let me raise my chin and feel the winters chill on my face let me feel the cut of the bitter wind as it moves from me to its winters race
Are Birds Afraid To Fall
Are birds afraid to fall, As they hop from limb to limb? When the water's rise to tall Are the fish afraid to swim?
Love Is Cruel And Unkind.
Love is cruel and unkind. A wet and soggy bit*h that clings to you long after she has turned cold. How does she come and infect a man with such ease and strength and so quickly fill every pore, every shallow and then cling stubbornly long after the hear is gone.
Are You Mad At Me
I just had to hear your voice one more time. But I didn't want to hurt you or make you angry. So after you said hello I hung up the phone. If you think about it, Im really not a bad person.
And I Go On
You spill into my dreams,
Intrude into my days.
You come into my thoughts,
A pause in the cold wind.
Then you are gone again.
And the cold wind bites
The hard winds blow,
And I go on.
