Is that a life living to satisfy other people's Needs?

Is that a life living like you are under a microscope?
Every actions you are doing you are being examined
If it is what kind of a life is it?
Is that a life when you can't speak your heart out because you are scared of making a spelling life mistake which can scare your life away and need an unexpected correction
Is that a life always counting your footsteps?
Is that a life?
if it is what kind of a life is it?
is that a life when you are afraid of expressing your feeling?
Is that a life when you are afraid to be loved or to love because you think you are over loving or overloved?
is that a life?
is that a life living without a person you love the most on Earth?
Is that a life afraid to stretch your legs and have a fresh air?

I know its the summer time because of how naturally
Your beauty compliments the caress of a summer breeze
As I watch the world from beneath a shady tree
I take in the delightful comfort of everything I see
But in the same breath I am holding up my hands
Lord will you please give me back the things I no longer have
They are even more a part of me now that they are gone
As the sun falls below where the horizon is still holding on
Somewhere between the falling light and a star lit night
Is a dream that last forever and will never say goodbye
As the wind gently blows through the brush and shakes the leaves
It begins to hum a melody that I want to sing
At that very moment I smile for all the joy I have
Its so uplifting for me to see melancholy dance
Soon the morning sun will rise and capture my eyes
As I watch the hand of God paint a brand new sky
With every stroke of color I swallow all my pride
And I find a new place to dream of endless times
If I should ever get to the place I left my broken heart
Only then will I believe this brand new day will start
Again Im reminded of why my heart beats so restlessly
Only the speed of thought and my soul beneath this tree

OH The flutter of my heart
When you asked me to marry
With your smile and manner
and with such poise and grace
Our shared days of laughter
and our late nights of whispers
Of our life in the future
with never a departure
We share an endless love
with our thoughts becoming one
Making dreams a reality
a precious gift from above
Our hearts are like gold
Our souls are like diamonds
I love you my husband
from young and to old.
T Reams for my sweet Husband

We have been broken up over a year
And I know the way we split was horrible
We both did fair share of hurting each other
But after a year here we are again together.
When one of your girl friends ask if you
We are dating you simply say no with no problem
So Are you shamed to say that we are dating
Or is it you are just shamed of dating and being seen with me.
I have loved you from day one
And I know we have had plenty of down's then ups
But no Relationship is perfect
It takes time and work
It takes two have a relationship
Now I am asking you
Do you want to be in this relationship with me or not
Because I am ready for a relationship
I am not trying to waste your or my time
So Just please tell me
Instead of just avoiding the question.
Why? can't we just work it out

I am blessed to have two wonderful sons that are very good to me
To say I am proud of them both is most definitely,
My eldest son is very independent
And my younger son is very driven to commitment,
They are both very Unique in their own ways
I am so lucky to have them both everyday,
Their futures are both very bright
And just knowing that I sleep very good at night.

What lies beneath
The flooding drains
A spiders web
Spawned of rustic chains
If you ask me how I am
I'll reply that I'm ok
Hiding behind this mask
As I resume to face this day
Then theres the sights
A synonym of what I cannot find in you
But I have found
Sometimes hunger is the only kind of food
Have I lost my Faith?
Its something that I could never see
Then theres your eyes
Still falling away from me
But if I was a better man
Would your rivers run deep into outer space
While all along your insisting
That we are both two worlds away
Behold this longer list of denials
And uncertain hope
Reflecting fears of affection
And you still keep your eyes closed
Then by my own admissions
My heart has grown from cold to colder
And by my own submissions
Losing your love has bled me sober

even to this day,i can still hear your voice,
your beautiful sweet voice,racing threw this place,
even to this days i remember who you are,
it kills me inside,knowing your gone so far,
i repeat our conversations and that only makes me cry,
some times it makes me laugh,you were always so silly,
even to this day i keep the heart you gave me,it still new full of feeling,
it still contains the date we created this love,
you left so much in my life,foot steps with a memorie behind it,
And here i am,still beating my self up,i close my eyes and
.make sure i dont breath,
i really need a friend,oh thats right you never have time,not
even for me,
even to this day, i carry more than what i ever gave,
that is acully wrong,i gave more than what this words
will ever make you strong,
i remember i promise you the moon the sky the stars,
well here i am holding the moon like a ring,
pulling the sky like ballons,
and having the stars together like flowers,
even to this day i remember who you are,
and like the promis i made,
ill creat a world with just you and me,just us,
even to this day i cry myself to sleep,
than i tell myself im all alone,
loenlyness became my best friend,
even to this day,i wish i could go back,
and say something to does silent phone calls we had,
even to this day,this end makes me sad.
it makes me fear,not just pain but also tears.

Apologies to my sister whom I see now as a friend,
But this is how I saw you when I was ten
Carrying no worry or fear
Deeming that life was easy
Except the fact of my sister
Fact: she was a pain in the neck
"Good morning!" She yells
Hurting my ears at 5 at dawn
If only I could strangle or at least take away
Just my sister for one whole day
Kicking her toys,
Lurching through the hall,
Munching on my cereal,
Never ceasing to trouble me,
Only when she's sleeping
Plus when I'm at school
Questioning, " What did I ever do to you?"

I will bruise your lips and Scar your knees
Pull your hair and grind your hips
Grab your neck and Pull you close
Till you gasp for air on torn out blouse
When I push my lips and hold you tight
There’s no bar for the limits tonight
For how those sweet lips they taste
As you pull away to catch your breathe
Your moans will be the music tonight
For the dance of the souls in love
As I go down and dim becomes the light
There is no Stopping us Tonight
There is no stopping us tonight

To my beloved, this is not just a gift
i'm giving to you it is my token of love
for you, my gift of love for you.
I love you so much from deep inside
my heart with utmost sincerity &
respect. My love for you is true & pure
in all aspects of life.
A heart which was broken, is today
mended only for you , cz I trust you.
A heart which once cried and suffered
pain is today once again smiling &
feeling happy cz you entered in my
lonely life giving me the love , care &
happiness which once I dreamt of.
This gift of love may not be that you
wanted from me , still i'm giving this to
you with my heart full of love for you.
With tears full of happiness & love,
i end my words here, hope you like it....
My token of love...my gift of love.....

Sometimes I like to pretend, things never came to a end. But over time, our love became a crime. I didn't know what we had, would ever end so bad. But then I knew things weren't right, when we started to fight. Now I walk down memory lane all the time, the pain is worst then committing a crime. We only caused eachother pain, but we were eachothers maine. I thought things would be alright, but I cried alot that night. I don't want things to change, without you my life is strange. You said you wanted me so much it started to hurt that you couldn't wait, now im just another person you hate. When you said you didn't care, I knew the person I loved was no longer there. You aren't the same, the new you is lame. We both fell, now it's hell. You use to always be here for me, like family. But now your nowhere in sight, things aren't right. Empty is all that I can feel, I still can't believe this is real. I didn't mean to let you get away, I didn't know what to say. Am i with the right guy, or am i telling myself a lie. I was afraid to loose what we had, but to you that choice was bad.

“Boldness – If I choose to loiter in this day I will lose it, and tomorrow will be the same, and I will end up lamenting the lost days” -By Wayne Wyder.
I needed a person who would cook my [spoiled] goose when my train was about to derail and he would fix the shocks.
I needed a fellow who bothered to know that before the Italians could cover my feet I had cracked heels. I needed a fellow who will know the origin of all the scars on my body, I needed one who knew why I engaged the services of a bespoke tailor – that the main reason was because my body was shapeless at some point.
I needed a fellow who knew that “my brother is a reflection of me. I can’t fly if he is falling”. I needed the one who understood that when I was with him we were neither strangers nor club attendees, nor colleagues. I am saying I needed the one who knew that he is not my leader but my vein.
I needed the one who was willing to walk alongside me all the time.
I needed a fellow who lived beyond his feelings but knew that as a brother we would always carry each other’s microscopes in order to zoom our blood. I needed a fellow that knew that his emotions/feelings could not build both of us but could provide either of us with a tent.
I needed a fellow who had his pad when the other fellow was jettisoned by his own plane because he had allowed today to pose as yesterday forgetting that today cannot be tomorrow.
Yes, I mean I needed the one who also had a pad when the misnomer was introduced into the other fellow’s plane and fermented the other fellow’s gum trees thinking they were impressed trees. I mean the one who knew that we are both together in this and he allowed me to have his ear when we walked, I mean the one who knew to listen to reason.

The Power of Forgiveness
By Reg Rhodes
Today, I found a key to set myself free from the nightmares of my own
Today, with the key known as forgiveness;
I will cease to languish in my own mental anguish.
Today, I have set a prisoner free;
much to my relief that prisoner was me.
The key of forgiveness releases me from the blame I placed on myself for four
The key of forgiveness releases me from the nightmare of the pain, the
shame, the endless tears.
Though her infidelity was hateful.
I have forgiven her, and for this I am grateful.
I was an unknowing participant of her malicious reasoning.
Falling victim to her planning and scheming.
All the while, she had an unrecognizable look in her eyes.
Her love for me had been replaced with lies.
I longed to see my wife again, but it was too late.
She had already been replaced by an evil being; brimming with anger, lies,
deception and hate.
I mourned her loss, and felt the emotion known as grief.
My loving wife wouldn't return. I pleaded with God to grant me relief.
I desperately needed relief, but found none.
Two years mourning the loss of my wife had begun
The truth would only cause me more pain and tears.
She finally told me the truth; that her betrayal had gone on for 3 years.
The anger and hate she had towards me; a level of betrayel beyond my
To my stunned family; those were the things I simply couldn't mention.
She sneered at my suspicions, forcing me to doubt my sanity.
Her actions filled me with humiliation, and stripped me of my dignity.
I have forgiven myself for trusting the devil who masqueraded as my best
friend, my confidente, my wife.
I have forgiven myself for falling in love with her at such a young age in my
I have forgiven her for bringing out the worst in me.
I have forgiven her for compromising my sobriety, and stealing my sanity.
I have forgiven her family, that despite her infidelity;
continued to love her unconditionally.
I have forgiven the uncompassionate ignorance of the fortunate;
those who have never felt the invisible wounds that infidelity brings.
To the naked eye of the naive; her hatred, anger and lust were unfathomable
I have forgiven her friends for helping me with the relentless self blame.
I have forgiven her for filling me with anger, bewilderment and shame.
I have forgiven the man who aspired to dismantle my marriage and ruin my
I have forgiven his longtime lover who was also my wife.
I have forgiven myself for sheltering my sanity in the cold cave known as
I have forgiven her actions that robbed me of my laugh and stole my smile.
I have forgiven myself; relinquishing my right to a better past.
Freeing me of the self loathing at last.
Ultimately, she couldn't stop her lies.
I knew it was time; we would have to to sever our ties.
In the name of love, I have forgiven her.
I have surrendered my right to hurt her for hurting me.
I have allowed a loving God back into my life; and I am once again free.
Forgiveness is the attribute of the strong.
Anger, resentments and hate do not belong.
With God back in my life, and daily prayer.
I have been able to forgive her affair.
God has shown me the sincerest, most beautiful form of love on earth.
He has given me the power of foregiveness, and granted me a spiritual

Being "free" is what I want to be,
Be "fearless" is what you keep telling me.
Not afraid of much- there's a few fears left inside,
To the point where I'm so scared, I just want to cry.
Fearless.... It's easier said than done,
There's one fear that sure seems to have won.
To this specific fear,
I'll tell you right now and here.
There's a part 1 and part 2,
too scared to know what to do...
Part 1 is honest and true- it all is,
I dont even expect any responses.
Part 1 of my fear is admitting and saying "i love you" (I'm trying NOT to scare you too)
Part 2 of this is... I dont want to do anything to lose you.
You're important to me- read every word,
Dont want it to be awkward, only heard.
I'm okay with being friends and taking it slow,
For as long as I need to or until I'm old.
I hope to be in a relationship with you,
But I NEED you to tell me, so we're on the same page and I'm NOT confused.
Don't get me wrong, I'll wait as long as you need,
But this fear of mine maybe stronger than me.
there you go-one of few of my fears,
I dont want things to be weird.
If your not ready thats fine with me, forget this poem existed for thee.
Just know that I understand much,
Take as long as you need, there is no rush.
I had to say it or else I'd blow up,
That was hard to get off my chest....
If you'll excuse me now, it's time to throw up.
I've never been so terrified to lose someone- a great catch,
I honestly think that we make a great match.

WHY DO RELATIONSHIPS FAIL?
When you first initiate the ''love'',
you cant sleep without calling and
texting that one person. You
suddenly render everyone else a
little less important. Your days just
got brighter. You love your
boyfriend. You love that girl and in
your minds, you've found your soul
mate. But where does it all go
wrong coz am sure nearly everyone
has a sad love story to tell. ''all he
wanted was sex'' ''he couldn't give
me attention'' ''she's a gold
digger'' ''she cheated'' ''he's a
childish flirt'' ''i thought i knew him
or her'' the reasons are plenty.
You see, WE ARE THE PRACTICAL
GENERATION. We believe in learning
by doing. Most relationships are
only existing because of the
''physical benefits''. Desire is the
driving force. As a result,
selfishness and insecurity are glued
to the relationships.
We believe in calling and texting as
an expression of love, trust and
faithfulness as compared to
physical company. Social media is
the source of relationships. We chat
day in and out about everything
such that when we meet, we do not
have anything to talk about. Now
after the blissful moments of
intimacy, you start feeling like its a
prison. You do not have anything
more to say. If its a guy, you go
back to social media to hunt again
leaving her heart broken.
We are the classy generation where
physical appearance is considered
more than emotional maturity. The
''beautiful'' girls are hard to get
unless you drive or can sponsor her
hair. They love the rich kids who
love their bodies. Church guys or
girls are called boring. You must
have ''swag'' to date someone.
Programs have replaced passion.
Love is highly mechanical and
nudity is called art. We nolonger
follow the heart. Its just a matter of
time for it all is a slow fade. Its a
ticking time bomb.
here truly love? Please teach me.

Love is real emotions.
Deep concoctions of a confused language
You need two people to understand it.
To hold, love, and cherish it.
You need two hearts pounding and wanting to challenge it.
Like finding the prettiest flower of weed or singing a song with no words.
Just a pile of outrageous, flying emotions waiting to explode.
As if to explode into perfect drops of sunshine and land on candy kissed skin.
To be the only bird fighting against the slow going wind.
As of all these words fighting to make sense.
Its when I met eye to eye with you and it affected the way I went.
It changed my whole direction and made me realize that it was you who needed my affection.
It made the confused language come into my perception.
Moving words around that makes no sense to a normal lover but a our language that me and you can cuddle.
Throw in the air and find ways as we go.
Make the world ours to be lovers as one.
To find my missing puzzle piece with the heart inside, to find I have the same one with a key in mine.
To find true lovers is oh so rare.
To know some people make it through when the night is bare.
Just two hearts feeding off another, its amazing to me.
That's when we put us in the picture and we become three.
A nice family with the start of we, just to know it all started with a you and a me.
To know love is real emotions.
Its a deep concoctions of a confused language

A friend I thought I had
when you came with a smiling gaze
But here I stand now
trapped in a lonely haze
Cast down the memory drapes
and put me in denial
Deadly are your deeds
they drown me in a pool of betrayal

From beginning to end there was love
this we know.
At a nights fall a dove flew,
she had to grow.
All that was built was falling and a return was long gone.
Time was of essence and no more words were needed,
Strange auras were afloat and all was lost.
Pain now fills one and regret fills another,
Soon truth will prevail and all will be at rest.
Untill it sheds some light one must forget,
One must forgive and see that no matter what
There was love beginning to end.

the days go dark
i sit in this park
its lonly and cold
but these feelings are old
iv seen it before
shes out the door
i slit my wrists
and my blood slowly twists
down my arm and off my hand
my life is fading and its so sweetly bland
i bleed for you
but you never knew
the slow downfall
of my life and all
its miserable,sad and funny to
how much i really care for you
its ok now my life is fading
but no one knows i only evading
the sadness of losing
and heartbreak, blood oozing
the white light draws near
its almost over from here

now its time i fell apart
its me not you

thats my blood my note of suicide
im sorry im not ok im the one who lied
its over my life has finaly reached its ending

A FEELING IN MY HEART HAS TAKEN OVER ME COMPLETELY, AND BOY YOU ARE THE STAR
TO COME INTO MY LIFE. YOU CAN TAKE ME. OF ALL THE GUYS I'VE EVER KNOWN, THEY'VE
NEVER BEEN AS WONDERFUL, SO SPECIAL AND SO SWEET TO ME. IN ALL THE DREAMS
I'VE EVER DREAMED, NO ONE HAS BEEN AS GOOD TO ME, AND YOUR THE ONE TO ANSWER
MY DREAMS. I FEEL YOU IN MY SOUL, YOUR HEART'S CARESSING ME SO DEEPLY. I'M UNDER
YOUR CONTROL. YOUR ALL I'LL EVER NEED. YOU CAN USE ME. OF ALL THE TIMES I'VE BEEN
ALONE, NO ONE HAS BEEN AS BEAUTIFUL, SO STRONG AND UNDERSTANDING TO ME. ALL THE
WAYS I CAN SEE NO ONE HAS BEEN AS GOOD FOR ME. AND YOU WILL ALWAYS BE THE ONE
WHY DO I BELIEVE THAT YOU BELONG TO ME.

Who knew when we first met we would be friends so close,
We were worlds apart and our view on life divergent,
We shared stories and secrets and said things which are close to our hearts.
We laughed we cried, had good times and bad.
I took you like family and loved you like one of my own.
I came in your life for a reason and knew we were meant to be good friends.
But somewhere along the way distance became a norm, something which I could not comprehend.
Feelings were hurt,bridges were burnt and wounds deepend.
The past has been forgotten,the love is lost and your place in my heart has faded.
Although it may seem everything is fine today I pray someday you understand and value the true
meaning of Friendship.

When we just was friends thing seem and felt better
But now sense we've decide to make it into a relationship thing
it seems and feels like everything have's change
I miss what we had
the sex hasn't change it still great
But I do think us having a relationship
between one other was the best
I like you a lot
It just seems like everything
not sure what went wrong
But I would like to fix it
I miss the way it was before.

time crawls like a spy through lives
sneaks unwavering through the undergrowth
only the deepest can handle it
rusted nails hide in knots
we move into a hologram of suffering
where observations give us wings to growth
I met you on the hill of unity
where emotions turn in reflection
under the banner of universal truth
your love encapsulated in resonance
indisputably the most beautiful thing that is conceivable
two travelers on the way to their destination

To this point of no return I've come,
I can't miss anyone anymore,
I'm out missed,
Maybe I've missed out the point cause of my misconceptions.
But my hearts ache is what it is, nothing less.
I'm in love.
With the idea of having u around,
The endless smile u put on face with just a little stare.
The gentleness when you touch me and my body sings songs with a magical melody.
We get wrapped around each other and you enter into my world, never have I ever felt such.
Ur body on mine holding onto each drop of sweat as I pant in rhythms of pleasure, my glory begging u silently to not stop,
Deeper it screams quietly,
Muted by the sins of passion we engage in!
My sin is falling for u.

A serpent of the night
A serpent in friendship
Striking with no courtship
Never minding the relationship
The painful thing about betrayal,
It never comes from the enemy
It feeds on the loved,
Making ‘em worse
Just like a curse
Directly from the cross
It feeds on trust
Created by lust,
We then wonder why it’s lost.
The real definition of humans
The ones you love more,
Cause you pains more.
Please don’t tell me you love me,
Cause all you do is stab me,
Never thinking of all you do to me.
A lot of pain, all from one source?

I once fell for a man with looks to kill and long hair as golden blonde
Body as a warrior god should be with his eyes so blue as ice
There I stood frozen into his spell
As he held me and looked deep into my eyes
And utterd these simple words of love I was sprung deep into him
This god of thunder kissed my lips ever so softly
Thought I've found my one true love only to find his true way of lies and useing my heart
Just to crumble and crush me down to my sorrow with his enchanted hammer to crush my heart
And all I hoped for to a million shatterd peices
I suppose this will be as I once fell for Thor
