Siphoned light gropes passengers
Hopeful for luminescent hearts,
Arching underneath bombazine drapes
Dusted with passionate legacies
Of original sin and the primogeniture son,
Wicked for nighttime plots savouring
Spicy love, exponential in a vivid darkness.

T~he minds eye closes and envisages the overflowing of true love from one's
H~eart, gravitating to thy One and Only;
E~scaping in conjunction with
B~rackish water adjoining to thy feet; taking note of the wind whispering
E~ver so seamlessly through thine ears while striding upon the seashore.
A~ccompanied by incessant love; keeping hold of hands on no
U~nearthly occasion of relinquishing. Kissing til nightfall loses its color
T~o the openings of daybreak; swimming amongst the creatures of sea
Y~earning to never part, til the extent life ventures to vanish...yet...
O~ftentimes the minds eye reopens to reality; though
F~or the time being
L~et's live every moment as
O~ur last, tracing God first and
V~ersifying our lives to that of the world as such...
E~veryone shall witness and behold The Beauty of L~O~V~E.

Keep well away from dark, forbidding dreams --
Instead, stay near the hearth and play your lyre;
Sleep even so will wait on wooden beams,
Seducing you beside your cozy fire.
Meticulous and careful you may be,
Evicting darting shadows with the blaze --
Inside your quiet cottage, patiently,
Night's emissary holds you in her gaze.
The cuckoo calls as midnight church-bells chime;
His warning message echoes from the walls --
Enchanted ears have lost all track of time,
So far from whispered fears as silence falls.
Her chilling hands then rip away your voice,
And images assail your inner eyes --
Denying you the act of conscious choice,
On captive lips she mixes truth and lies.
When sunlight climbs the sky and breaks her spell,
She blows a darkened kiss, and bids farewell.

H arrowing muscle! forcing passion on my soul.
E ver-present beating - a metronome of feeling.
A rduous yet wonderful, fickle yet insistent.
R acing with adrenaline - Swinging, jumping, screaming! -
T ill it stops... and all is silent and unfeeling.

Pounding hearts pumping out rivers of love, in the beginning, those
Anointing streams of sweet passion which nourished our souls
Soon began to shrink, then were slowly abandoned. They
Simply seemed to disappear. Those long forgotten
Invigorating waters that washed away our troubles.
Onward now we go, lost and bewildered,
Not knowing how to reclaim what we lost along the way.

These were set in motion from the beginning of time.
Heavens abound in each of their glory, power sublime.
Every excursion that they set upon revolves in rhyme.
Solar orb that secures life upon this planet we dwell.
Universally seen around our globe, for all to tell,
Never tiring it revolves, captured within its cell.
Rising up from its core, flares of powerful streams.
I respect what has risen from the sunny beams.
Sharing the glory that it has upon everyone, it seems.
Evident by the life that it supports even in dreams,
Solar star of daylight hours continue as nature deems.
Till nightfall approaches while another completes the set.
Helping to guide travelers for centuries the positions to get,
Evening ignites different phases upon this satellites debt.
Monthly revolutions of this celestial body sway the hours.
Orbital bliss has spoken richly along with romantic flowers.
Opening souls in sensuality and fulfilling romantic powers.
New moon to which many have fell into its magical showers.
Splendor of the night as it falls to set upon the new dawns light.
Exemplary versions follow a pattern, which marvels natural sight.
Take notice of what you may be missing each upcoming night.
Said, I’ve heard, old sailors delight, shining, enchantingly bright.

Morning rain arrives like an eager child relinquishing the urge to pee
On my window pane it plays, pitter splatter dot dot, refresh,
Regardless of the grayish sky above the lightened clouds seem happy
Neon lights are flashing from across the road, I am engrossed in paint
In the early morning hush, by a quiet winter January day, rain happens
Needling my senses, perforating my statuesque still figure and me
Go to it says the brain, add a little more green, more color but,
Rain says no, let the somber colors grow up today,
Another brush stroke and I am finished, later over a cup of coffee
I will watch the remains of a shower that cleansed all gutters and debris
No better way to paint then listening to the rain outside
it relinquishes, my urge to flee.
Love to all, and all for one,
Your Mystic Rose

Thrice I found you burnt to ashes
Withered and alone, I sewed on patches
Ideal soulmate, destiny had spoken
Nurturing your fragility, torn and broken
Fawning passion, your features ravishing
Lingering kisses, two bodies lavishing
Adjoined in desire, our fire illuminated
Memorizing every inch, enthralled and jaded
Exquisite devotion to my beloved James
Sacred vows between two twin flames

I will wait for you as long as it takes,
I will not let you go by making many mistakes,
I will be strong while i hold on tight,
Even if you don't care to say goodnight,
I will always want a part of you in my heart,
Even though i am already being torn apart,
I will smile and not act like nothing wrong,
I will always want you,
It's already been this long,
So if i am alone for the rest of my life,
I was waiting for you to come and let me be your wife,
I know that you will never feel the same way
I am just letting you know even how much you hate me,
I will always Stay.

Just that one girl,
Under the influence of romantics,
Living for love,
In deception of useless antics,
Every thing she could want,
Lying to a mask,
Often subject to a taunt,
Vulnerable to it's grasp,
Ever living in tomorrow,
Living for the waking dawn,
Enlightenment found in sorrow,
Sorrow never did her wrong,
Softly romantic yet viciously loving.

Love surrounds us…though people take it for granite
Oh, but we’re unaware of it! We’re ignorant of it at times of tribulation
Vibrant, vermillion roses float in the swaying wind, like feathers, passing me by with a smile and a friendly wave
Everyone is embracing hate instead of love, embracing havoc instead of peace – WHERE IS THE LOVE?
I am longing to feel like I belong! The church bells repeats its penitent bells
Saddened by the fact that I’m trapped in my comfort zone of callous night…I want to be unchained from this solitary cave…but no angels tread the road that I’m currently on unfortunately
Hate rips my heart apart and throws it in the heartless fire…love is invisible like a caved in treasure
Ashamed because I always wanted to find avarice-devouring love, restoring joy to my absent-of-vanity verse
Rain descends like the sunset as my spirit ascends like the sunrise above the disconsolate clouds
Drenched in heartfelt relief…of experiencing love on another level – I’ll bring back to life my faith towards You once more
Tattered by heart’s wistful thumping…replace my heart with beauty’s caress and harmony, for I’m desperately in need of a savior
Owned by hatred, the monster that appears in my nightmares, the vile leader of rancorous wolves…
Fly away from the darkness that made you drink in desolation and devastation
Isolated by bliss and joy – overflowing with lamentation
Never able to find a mixture of serenity and exaltation…maybe I’ll find it in the forest’s quietude
Destined to unlock my heart’s desire…however, love is hard to find, for I’m a hopeless, romantic boy, foolish in love and frankly…blind!

"Never, Always, Sometimes"
Never will I ever bring you pain
Even if you won't promise the same
Virtuously, your Love reigns
Eric's heart without any shame
Reviving Love just to keep me sane
Always my heart will rest in your hands
Love has been provided for this man
Warm memories outnumber a beach's grains of sand
All because it is in His Plan
Your Beauty is perfect so please understand
Sensual nights will be our routine's brand
Sometimes I wonder how such a Blessing has been bestowed upon me
Observing your actions makes this feel like destiny
Maybe I am just that lucky, you make my Soul feel free
Every morning I arise, in unison is where our lips be
Tales of such Love have caused so many to see
In due time, we must all pay the fee
Making Life worth Living for True Love will never flee
Equal trust is firmly established, the most important key
Saving this man from myself, and for that, I thank thee

Mothers are truly God’s gift to the world and really for us
Oh, they will put things out, even a fuss with a simple touch
The essence of their being prevents us from being in a rush
Hear their words of wisdom and one will learn very much
Even as drivers they shift gears without scraping the clutch
Resting a child’s head, they simmer a cry with such a hush
Saving grace, loving us dearly like a hand with a royal flush

Vast oceans of light
In the night flowing over us through you and me cant you see
Now there it is again light light love so faithful
Ever seeing clearer there is again light light light treasures so unmeasurable in
Small weak vessel there is again light light light light

There yet nothing lost light light light light light
Rising brighter than yesterday will ever be light light light light light light
Under his guiding care
Everlasting so good there is again light light light light light light light resting in

Yearning for you to love me too.
Open you heart, mind, and soul, and

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

Cookies are addictive!
OoOoH! Here's one to snatch!
Okay...where's the chocolate chips?
Kraving too many of these treats
I want some now! But...I might get beeefy...
Every bite is mouthwatering, soft and crisp
Should I take another cookie?

Sense of humour, elevating our spirits
Musing over the simple things in life, rejoicing at what we find
Imagination stimulated, childlike, seeing the wonders in life

Pen in hand, against the paper,
An artist must be left to bleed,
Inner thoughts become written words.
No better way has been found
To empty out a soul.
With growing eagerness,
I add fuel to the fire
To induce passion's flame,
Hoping the blaze never dies.
Forever and a day, and longer,
Inside my heart the fire burns.
Revealing to another soul
Every spark of my inspiration.

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.
