Marriage is a great institution, but I'm not ready for an institution.
A dame that knows the ropes isn't likely to get tied up.
Every woman knows, an ounce of performance is worth pounds of promises.
When I'm good, I'm very good. But when I'm bad I'm better.
Every man I meet wants to protect me. I can't figure out what from.
Save a boyfriend for a rainy day - and another, in case it doesn't rain.
Ten men waiting for me at the door? Send one of them home, I'm tired.
When they say boldly go where no man's gone before, they don't mean the kitchen.
Honey when I said I wanted something to hang my hat on I didn't mean THAT!
Any port in a storm is a good way to divorce court dearie!
Titillating is not an excuse for going to girlie bars.
Anyone got a buck I could sure use one?
Grab a piece of arse will you, it may be the last thing you ever grab.
Anal retentive? You don't say!
Lip service now there's a concept.....
*Listen for the drum roll!

Yesterday, at the castle or was it a long time past?
All our lives we never met
Our dreams into reality we could make them last
Troubles now our lives are set.
Seemed we were meant to meet
So now to the fates we are in debt
Far behind now the guilt as our hearts in rhythm beat
Away from searching eyes since we met.
Now we will long for tomorrow for some peace
It waits for us to take hold and hold tight
Looks mean nothing as our mature eyes crease
As long as we hold each other through the night
Though the hours are passing, they rob us all
They’re still our friends while present.
Here we are, not knowing when we fall
To hold each other is why we were sent
Stay with me, I know you long for that call.
Oh woe the time passed, the hours now gone
I grieve in my heart for that unmet one
Believe my words, my heart is true
In you I believe with feelings new
Yesterday at the castle when I met you.

T o those women who don’t know, that love was manifested when a man was just an embryo
H is very being was developed to love a woman unconditionally and so, in my poetry
E verything is for my Queen, for I am her King; she is the glow inside of me
H is heart beats to the rhythm of her love, which was manifested from above
E very man knows that woman is his kryptonite; that’s evident in the acrostic I write
A ffectionally, I pull my woman close at night as only she can quench my appetite
R ealistically, she is the life inside of me which is a constant glow
T echnically, our love is like universal poetry and God forbid if I should ever let her go!
O bject of my affection, yet she is more than a mere object
F rom heaven to earth, we’re a heavenly connection which makes us perfect!
A n angel on earth that was sent from above for me, to love from the time of my birth
M an and woman, made for one another neither can happily exist without the other
A nd as I bring this Acrostic to a close, I think about my counter part
N othing can compare to her for she’s the one I chose and she’s forever in my heart!!!

you're everything to me
a hidden longing deep within
just like the air breath
when I feel alone at times
you'll hold my hand tightly and being around
through my laughter or my tears
you'll comfort me and give me faith
you are a precious gift of love
you fill my soul with the meaning of love
for even in the darkest hour
when all of hope seems gone
thought of a still resilience voice
to feel you within my reach
in my heart
you're always with me
there will be a place for you forever
now,a whole new world
just for you and me
this bond between us can't be broken
my life,you'll touch
I will be glad to have you in my life
I can share my interests with you
I'll search no more
cause you are a precious gift of love

Glorious are the days we ride, my love.
You and I riding in the morning light.
Passions racing hearts are thundering.
Sunrise explodes pink and purple streaks across the sky.
You and I smiling, riding together in the first light.
Kindred spirits racing together chasing the morning star.
Intoxicated on the morning air.
Nowhere, but here in this moment.
Glorious is the day we ride.

The bluest skies, don't seem so blue. And the stars seem a little dimmer too. Now that your around , you put 'em all to shame. Let me break it down 'cause what I'm tryin to say is, no one gets me, like you when you kiss me. Girl, you rock me harder than some downtown band. I thought I knew what love was, but I didn't have a clue. I've never found anything that makes me feel like I do about you. You know i love u with all my heart and we got the realest relationship ever and im happy ! And i see that some girl is goin to call out my name all because you wont talk to her because of me lmao she can fall back for real ! haha but i guess we gotta get to sleep and i get to be so lucky to wake up in the mornin laying right next to you love you baby and I always will.

It's you tha I see every now and then
Not even aware of your existence
That somehow I will fall for you
How come I didn't know that it was you
Even before I fall in love with you
Many chances had passed between us
Over and over again like a deja vu
Oh my, am I so silly for not knowing it at once
Don't know better than my heart does
For since then, I never felt like this before
Only you can make me feel brand new
Roaring like lion my heart boom!
Loving you makes me in the mood for love again
Oh, how long I've waited it
Verily I say, thanks for this day
Even though, it takes time for me and you
Awaiting it for a long time, I feel no regret
GOD gives us time to be together
Alas! I waste it no more
I hold and cherish it forever
Now that the chance is ours....

Drunkenly we fall once more
And wake up weaker than before,
Not dense enough to question this,
I simply savour every kiss,
Evidently, in my bed
Lies nothing more than just a friend.

I watch from my window above,
as she views the scented flowers that surround her
She is my princess of this exploding colourful garden,
owning all that is around my perfect brunette.
Complementing the vast fragrance nature with her equal beauty.
Looking beyond ,
I gaze at running wildlife clearing the endless fields ,
mountains greeting the skyline.
Our path leads to this incredible breathless life,
a world open for only us to touch.
I take in everything that I desire,
locked in my loving heart.
Sadness crawls into the mind and clears away my unifying paradise.......
Just a midsummers daydream,
one day, could be.

There you go
Making me fear the person I am
Trying to put me down
My bond to you is stronger than I thought
I love and hate you
Not for the unforgivable things you’ve done
But for putting me in that position
Where believing in myself
Is so far out of context
That I hate who I am so completely
For me to get better I need you more than ever
To just be who your supposed to be to the person who I am

Before I go, please know it was for the best that I do this.
Explain to me first why are you giving up?
Frantic decisions are destroying any hope I have for us.
Or is this not my fault?
Really think about it and be honest.
Eternity can be ended with four simple words.
I don't love you
Don't give up on me, please listen to the truth first.
I swear I love you and I always will.
Eliminate any anger and accept that we were both wrong and realize you do love me...before I die.

CLARISSA’S VALENTINE DIARY OF “PASSION”
Pretty in red, her tears start to flow
All dressed up and nowhere to go
She got dumped after he had his way
Sweet revenge follows this Valentine’s Day
Into the river his body will go
One knife, an alibi, no-one will know
Now what better day for his bad blood to flow
to be continued…..
Proudly relieved that she didn’t get caught
Alibi solid, her story they bought
Sweet Valentines’ Day will be all she wished for
She’s found a new love, couldn’t ask for much more
Incidentally she’s hoping and praying that he
On this day will make her a new bride-to-be
Nothing good lies ahead, if he doesn’t agree.
to be continued…..
Perfect in white, this she didn’t foresee,
Alone in the church, where the devil is he?
Standing alone in her wedding gown
Somebody whispered the groom had fled town
Into the limo so no-one would know
Once again Valentine tears start to flow
Nobody dumps her, she won’t let this go.
to be continued….
Payback is lurking, his receipt she found
A step behind him she’s Canada bound
She has revenge written all over her face
Smith and Wesson, in her case
It might convince him to take her advice
Or face consequences, without thinking twice
Nasty Clarissa, will he pay the price?
to be continued……

i find the real meaning in life
looking forward to each dreams at night
only to savor you in a world of ideality
velvety dreams might come to reality.
endowed by a little time for me
yet i wish we are so free
on our journey to the ends of eternity
until then i would find certainty.
so i sail on the sea of uncertainty
only to unravel your mystery
mangled by your poignant gestures
unveiling my innermost pictures
causing empty spaces in my living
have you seen my hidden feeling?

Saw you with a Girl.
Jealousy Strike through me,
I Love you and I think...
it`s still not enough
I`m Broken Hearted
to see you both Kissing.
What did I do?
Am I not Enough for you?
Why?Why are you doing this to me?!
I`m Going Mentally and Physically Crazy,
You Broke my Heart..
With a Simple Knife Slash
You Hurted me and with all my Might...
I Tried,I tried to move on
But why couldn`t I ?!
This is Pissing me off!
Why? Tell me Why Am I sulking Over You?
As ig you are my Life?
It feels like...
My World Revolves Around you

How I can forget all the love you showed me? When you
would have been prefect for me to love forever. Only
now I realize that God answered my prayers alittle to
late for any kind of future for us.
If only you came into my life earlier. We would have
had the greatest love that's ever been known. Instead
of me having to let you go and just walk away.
Wanting more then anything to change some of the things I did for the love of money. Even though the world says they forgive me for chasing money. But at the cost of losing Your love forever.
Always trying to forget all the times you were there. When no one else was. Giving me support even when I didn't deserve it. Showing me love when only God could and never being ashamed of me.

Pathos - I feel - people feel for me, prior failure for the world to see.
Only you can see, only you can save; myself from the world and me.
Obtuse days, fills my dull life, fleeting by like a winter sun.
Natal phase it no longer is, our alliance had too far in the past begun.
Abide my time, no longer shall I; shall seek what true heart has always cared -
'Magic carpet of Alladin' to fly away with my Jasmine; and host a toast to us in air.

You're not my first
But you are my last.
I been through alot of break ups
but that's all in my past
Laughter that never ends
Because you bring me so much joy
I was lucky to meet you
Now I'm blessed because your my man
It was alot of options
But I was glad to choose you
You might have lied to them
But I believe your words are true
But like opposites attract
And I'm attracted to you
I want you to be the last man in my life
that I say "I Love You" to

New seed is sown, a baby born; one and twenty years ago.
I felt the moment, I felt the day, and became a man to grow.
You blossomed, the petals emerged; the seed became a radiant flower.
Angel darling, two months ago, I surrendered myself to your power.
Together betrothed, together we will stay, until time ceases to exist
I make this pledge on your birthday, and seal it with my faithful kiss.

< elects not to open door by hand
looks pretty stupid too
even an grandma can do it
calling all grandma's
technology has gone to far
really really to far now
one does not need to be an rocket scientist
nor an magician
it's easy as one two three
tip your hats
look both ways
launch arms outward
and pull or push that's it

C ontentment on hot summer days is to lay me down gently
upon the glossy, cool, red ceramics tiles, that refresh and tantalize bare skin
H alf naked, brown and melting, like chocolate on your tongue
I ndifferent to peering eyes of strangers wandering about
L eaving inquisitives to brainstorm about “Are they, or not”; secret laughs shared
we live only in our daydreams of love’s passionate connection
L oving summer nights rendezvous beneath sister moon and her entourage of
millions of twinklin stars
I gniting latent fires that still smolder amidst the ash, barely breathing
N ights of in ocean side palaces of sky and sand; enjoying soft warm breezes that
cool passion's thirst, as the sound of a lonely sax wafts through the palms,
has us drifting off to the soothing lullaby of rolling, crashing waves.

A LITTLE LOVE SONG OF LITTLE THINGS.
There is nothing to say
no complaints no gratitude,
Your aptitude is right but
its hindering your attitude!
A glass was my page-
you were my water I thought,
Your love was a sorrowful battle
with tears I fought!!
Every drop of tear
that wet my eyes,
I hid with smiles
beneath my cries!
You were the amazing rolling
waves of the sea that help to sail,
I forgot the same waves turn
monstrous and the sailors do fail!!
There was a time when
you had nothing beside you,
A bucket of tears and
the company of devils in your crew,
There were tears in your eyes
and a passion of compassion,
The tears turned into laughter
and so changed your fashion!!
Let me recall today although
what is done for others must be forgotten,
When you were wet I soaked
your tears and did swell like the cotton,
When the burden of sorrow
overlapped your heart-I was the button,
But when prosperity knocks
men lock their rooms and draw the curtain!!
Who remembers the world beyond the window,
Who cares for the candles when the bulbs glow,
Who remembers the teardrops when they laugh,
Who cares for a muffler when they have the scarf??
Oh girl you forgot your tears
were not yours they were our,
Oh girl you forgot you were
not my weakness you’re my power,
Oh girl you forgot the drops of rain
is purer than the shower,
Oh girl you forgot a garden
is not garden without the flower!!
Just look outside your window
the love bees are sad to see us part,
The bulbs may glow your room
but the candle brightens your heart,
The laughter echoes in the air
but the teardrops paint your memory,
The scarf may be expensive
but the old muffler will serve you for free!!
Those drops of tears that’ve
evaporated are calling us back again,
The sky is gradually darkening
and reuniting the drops of rain,
The Garden of Eden is scentless
and the flowers are numb to bloom,
And the curtain is explosive
to open and brighten our room!!
I feel a strong sensation
in me to reunite,
And relive the days
that’ve gone out of sight,
But the garden will not rejoice
unless the bees hum and the flowers bloom,
And the flowers will bloom only
if you hold my hand and walk out of your room!!
Once we are together we’ll go
back into our lovely loving phase,
And once the grasses grow-
the cows will certainly come to graze,
And once the flowers bloom
there will soon be humming of the bees,
And again there will be joy in little things-
in candles, mufflers and trees!!

IM SORRY I HAVE TO LEAVE BUT I'LL TRY TO COME BACK
I REMEMBER HOW YOU USED TO TOUCH ME
AND WHEN WE FIRST MET YOU ALWAYS SAID HEY YOU
IT'S YOUR SILENCE THAT TEASE ME
i TRY TO LISTEN OUT FOR YOUR WHISPERS
MY TEARS HAVE GONE
I WANT YOU TO BE HERE WITH ME TO STAY
IM SORRY IM SELFISH BUT I CANT BE ALONE
ALL I KNOW IS THAT YOUR NOT HERE TO SAY TO ME
I LOVE YOU
TIME IS NOT TIMED
IM TIRED OF WAITING
YOU HAVE TO COME BACK
I MISS YOU
I NEED YOU
I WANT YOU
ONE DAY YOU WILL BE MINE
I FEEL SO ALONE WHEN I KNOW I HAVE YOU.
