Poems about caught

Caught your stare

I caught your stare

It would have hurt less
If you had stabbed me in the stomach
And twisted hard
Letting warm blood seep through my clothes

At least then
I would have been warm

Because your glance
Sent chills through my body
And i sat there
Unable to move
Paralyzed by ice blue
Dizzy on forgotten love fumes

All because
I caught your stare

S. s

caught,  stare.

Im trying to let you down easy
But your rolling to hard
Your Eyes made out of sand from a hour glass
Gazing into the ceiling of stars
Hoping to just catch a glimpse of who you truly are
Not your name
Or your ancestors dancing flames
Or the construct and deconstruct of your DNA
But to unravel your purpose
The reason for urges of the currents jolting in your brain
The motive for the moving left instead of right
Why your demons masqurade during the day
But parade at the peak of night
Why do you hide?
Why do you fight?
Why do you lay under a canopy of what you wish to be?
You have sight but no vision so what can you really see?
Why do you keep secrets from yourself and no one else?
You dream to be rich but malnourish your health
You pray to a god but don't know who
You find a cup of ricin enticing knowing the flavor that it brews
Why you do the things that you do?
Answers you need them
The fiends you feed them
Regrets you bleed them
Your words you bleep them
Apologies you keep them
Your flaws I see them
Clearer then prehistoric waters
Tainted with blood like the nile after the slaughters
You thought your punishment was elusive
But I caught her
Raised her as my daughter
Became both her mother her sister her brother and her father
Then released her into your world
So you can see the product of your abuse
And wear her like a neckless to choke on it like a noose

Caught Between Frost and the Mire of Mediocrity

Caught between the frost
And the mire of mediocrity
We're just passengers on failure's final ferry

We're courageous, yet hamstrung
By demons and daydreams
I've learned the cold makes these thin bones ache

And all this foreboding has drained
The little strength that I've managed
To collect from season to broken season

I tucked the past in an overcoat
Before I stepped out on the porch
Hobbling despite the crutches that I carry

Am I a witness to winter?
Or a simpleton of madness?
I loved you more than every "God damn" muttered under icy breath

But I'm still struggling
Fighting against the weight of it

Simply... caught

Caught between the frost
And the mire of mediocrity

caught,  frost,  mediocrity,  mire.

With her
She caught me

Did you catch me staring?
Trying to figure out what your chiseled body looks like
Underneath those clothes
Your blue jeans and polo shirts turn me on.
Did you catch me staring?
I was merely trying to see your heart
Through your carefully constructed facade
Later, it became evident, however.
Did you catch me staring?
Oh, how embarrassing.
I hope these walls don't speak a word of it.
Of my unwavering love for you.
Did you catch me staring?
I promise,
I really did try so hard to look away
But that only drew me to you more.
Did you catch me staring?
You are the reason I cannot focus on anything else
*And I wouldn't have it any other way.

Catching attention like a fish
Only to throw it back in again, stung
By ragged scales and worry
The splash spells out the words
Into my arm, saying
I should have spoken up sooner

Guess i'm just no good at fishing
Or too good, but too picky
I missed the thin black fishing lines
Pulling and cutting into my skin
As i tied them tight around myself
Til they returned, and i wish you were here
To tear them off again, to melt them
Under warm sun, to rock me
Like a lazy canoe, to reel me in
Like the hook and bait that are no longer needed
Because you caught me

Encased in the Feeling, Caught in the Skein

Feelings of love enter
A heart filled with despair.
Words bounce within my center
Darkness now turning quite fair.

My days now filled with splendor,
I keep them not just to myself.
To love you is of valor,
Pulled down old feelings from shelfs.

Blow dust off a rusted heart,
With you my love had begun.
I believe we'd never part,
We, a loving web, have spun.

caught,  encased,  feeling.
