The Luckiest Man
I have found that not everyone is as strong
As the skies are wide and the days are long
But in life I have found there is this one
Whose bounty makes me feel as warm as the sun
And from the moment that she first caught my eye
I knew I’d be with her til’ the day that I die
That I would love and cherish her all the day through
And do all those little things we men are supposed to do
And spend my days lost in utter bliss
That I had this beautiful woman to kiss
And there’s one true fact ‘bout her being my girl
That makes me the luckiest man in the world
I would taste you up and down,
From the top of you to your base,
Nibble your ticklish places,
Then kiss the smile upon your face.
I would pull you with sweet longing,
To where only you could see,
And place the deepest parts of me,
Warmly within your reach.
You would fold yourself in my safety,
Wrap yourself in my love,
You would feel my passion enclose on you,
And I would fit you like a glove.
I would fill your soul with nourishment,
That only a good woman provides,
You would release all your secrets into me,
And I would hold them safely inside.
You would kiss me and whisper so sweetly,
That from me you will never part,
And gently, eyes down, I would offer to you
The last piece of my heart.
As I emerge from the dark, your light engulfs me.
Love ignited with a spark, and I trembled in ecstasy.
Just a soft caress, from the tenderness of your touch.
I adore you with all I possess, which may be too much!
Your moist butterfly kiss, makes my very knees buckle.
I'm in a state of bliss, for your tongue's sweet as honeysuckle!
The smell of your honey pot, awakes every one of my senses.
You've hit the exact spot, for you've removed my emotional defenses!
Your love blankets me, sending me spiraling above.
My heart recites your poetry, and I'm comforted by your love!
Step 1, take two friends before they are lovers
Show them how to share with oneanother
Add a slice of intinmacy of becoming one
Like holding hands under the sun
Now subtract the bitterness and add the sweet
The flavor of a kiss should taste like a treat
Give her a compliment and 1 soft caress
Then rest your head against his chest
1 cup of humor and 1/2 a cup of concern
A pinch of assertiveness
But too much will burn!
100 kisses a day will keep the doctor away
A drop of hope then mix in family and friends
Your recipe for love
Will never come to an end.
He smiles in my direction as he walks in the door
And laughs at my heart, now a puddle on the floor,
The people walking by turn, point and stare,
I repeat over and over, “there’s nothing there…”
Rains of passion, waves of homicidal angst,
You can’t look backwards and still walk straight,
A million signs are screaming out at you:
Stop-danger-watch out-you’re running too
Quickly, swiftly your friends all walk away,
I’d like to say something, but it’d be so cliché,
Silently you sit and watch them go,
Hoping inside that they don’t know,
Maybe they won’t know, but everybody knows…
I think of you and I think about stars,
Captured fireflies in marmalade jars,
Beautiful reminders of what may have been,
But the fire goes out, and they lay there dead...
He says, “The poison doesn’t do it for me anymore,
I need a pain to leave me lying gasping on the floor,”
My eyes go cloudy as he looks to yesterday,
I say, “I never meant to hurt you anyways...”
It broke my heart, I almost cried
To see you hurting, so broke inside,
Twist, plunge deeper, lemon and salt it so,
Some suffer in silence, I’ve come to know,
You’d rather be alone, you asked me to go...
The colors flew around the walls,
How I got here I don’t recall,
He handed me the bottle and I didn’t think twice,
"Just get rid of the pain, whatever the price..."
I think we danced, at least we may’ve,
Silly boy, to think I’d misbehave,
He said, “I bet I can change your mind,”
Slow down, stop, (learn to) rewind,
“Hold my hand,” I pleaded, to who?
I don’t think so, that’s not something I’d do,
Stop, not there, leave me alone,
I don’t want to be touched anymore…
A glance at the reflection as I pass a mirror,
I thought I saw a smile, but it disappeared,
Spin around and around, a crystal ball,
Reality’s a mist that surrounds us all…
I feel so sad…so lonely,
Wish you were here to hold me.
Now that you’re gone,
All I can do is mourn.
Wish I could take back all that I’ve done,
So we can re-unite; together as one.
I miss you; I am so tired of crying,
Oh GOD! You know I’m not lying.
I love you with all my heart,
Do we really have to go apart?
I guess it’s too late;
You already walked out the gate.
You will forever live in my heart,
For me our love never tore apart.
You, my baby, will be;
The first and last person loved by me.
When the nights turn cold and there's nobody at home,
I want to be that person on the phone.
When nothing seems right,
and the road ahead appears less than bright,
I want to be that person who holds you tight.
When no one seems to care,
and tears start running down your stare,
I want to be that person who's always there.
When pain damages your spirit secretly,
and sadness affects your heart equally,
I want to be that person to rescue your frequency.
When dreams go their separate ways,
and ambition goes up in a blaze,
I want to be that person to provide the desire within your gaze.
When barriers stop your smile shining,
as beautifully as dawn and all hope looks forgone,
I want to be that person who believes in you to carry on.
When happiness exudes your clutch,
and life's struggles are never a crutch,
I want to be that person who receives your touch.
When you manage to make it through,
and you look around to see who stayed true,
I want to be that person who hears you say,
"my Angel is always you".
When romance and commitment are mixed traditionally,
and comfort is thrown in additionally,
I want to be that person you love unconditionally.
When moments are in their prime,
and schedules become demanding along the line,
I want to be that person who receives your time.
When patience is taken to execute the perfect kiss,
and butterflies create an instance of bliss,
I want to be that person you will instantly miss.
When your tone is as joyful as spring,
and you believe you can do anything,
I want to be that person to change your life with a single ring.
No matter our individual flaws,
I wish to take a moment and pause.
Draw in a deep breath and steady my cause,
as I caress your palm and reveal to you "I wana be yours".

I'm sorry that I'm always sad,
That I do things to make you mad.
I'm sorry that I've lost my hope,
I'm sorry for the ways I cope.
I'm sorry that I bring you down,
I'm sorry that I make you frown.
I swear to God that you must believe,
I love you more than you can see.
I'm sorry that my heart is dying,
I swear to you that I've been trying.
I'm sorry that I cannot see,
much future left in front of me.
I'm sorry that I'm so depressed,
I realy know that I'm a mess.
Writing this note's made me see,
Just how much hurt I've made you grieve.
I'm so disgusted with myself,
I'm so damn bad for your good health.
I know that It's hard to admit,
I've made this such a long hard trip.
I feel like I have ruined your heart,
Like I have torn you all apart.
I have a question for you dear,
And, yes, your answere I do fear.
You said that you missed her big picture,
When you saw, you changed your fixture.
For your sake, love, please look at mine,
Before your heart's put on the line.
I'm sorry that I'm so impatient,
I'm just afraid life's not worth waiting.
I really don't want you to leave,
I want for us to both believe.
I want to once again find hope,
But it will be hard on my own.
But then again if I'm too much,
I don't want to kill all your love.
I'm sorry for the ways I fight,
I'm sorry that I dim your light.
I'm sorry I'm so negative,
That I am so competative.
I'm sorry that I'm so outrageous,
I'm sorry my hurt's so contagious.
I don't want to see your heart eache,
Cuz when I do my heart it breaks.
I'm sorry that I'm not so strong,
But you inspire my hearts song.
I'm not alone cuz now I see,
Your light that's shining just for me.
I'm sorry that I'm up and down,
But, Dear, You win the patience crown.
My love for you's so strong, please see,
A fire burns for you in in me.
I know that It's hard to believe,
But God will help us, just you see.
Before the future and after the past
We have found each other’s souls at last
In the beat of a heart I was able to see
The rest of my life belonged to thee
When our eyes met it wasn’t a glance
Locked together in a forbidden trance
For we had each given up on love
And being forgiven by Lord above
We were forever lost and on the run
Burying our pain by having our fun
Children scattered from here to there
As we stayed so high we didn’t care
We each knew when you come down
You lose your mask and face the clown
And that was something we couldn’t do
Until the day you met me and I met you
Unplugging the phone we locked the doors
I told you my sins and you told me yours
The people in our life just couldn’t believe
We found in each other the strength to leave
To change our fate was quite the chore
But there was noting we each wanted more
My children love you and yours love me
Because we have melted into one family
I wrote this poem because I want you to know
You beat with my heart and live in my soul
You have always been way more than my lover
You’re the friend I found who is like no other
He lives with her and says for sure, that's where he wants to be.
A lovely wife, who hides her strife, how attractive; Not to me.
Though she did stray, he chose to stay, defending love unkind.
He claims success, when it's a mess; A delusion of the mind.
He comes to me for I am free, my mind and soul complete.
I do not reflect; I have self respect and can't settle for defeat.
It's hard to say why he won't stay, perhaps I'm just to real.
He can't fool me, for I can see beyond ones fake appeal.
He will not leave though, she'll deceive and hide behind her fear.
It's way too late to close that gate; He would rather die than veer.
There was a time it crossed my mind, he'd choose this maiden fair.
This is me, miss reality, and he's not going anywhere.
Although I know that time will show, mistakes burn deep, ask me?
For I've been there without passions flare, and I lived in misery.
At least I know I'm not a show, but it seems that's what they crave.
A challenge, please! I'll never tease and you can mark that on my grave!
When Sparks Fly.
The magic in our togetherness make's sparks fly.
Years of me loving her, her heart will always be mine.
Our trials, our errors, through out our years.
Seeing grandchildren we made, strikes me to tears.
Two hearts we have still beat as one.
The magic of our love is like white morning doves.
We are still young then turning so old.
Magically we are still in love 7 times fold.
I have found my soul mate early in my life's stride.
We both believe our love, with togetherness is our pride.
Looking into your eyes I see the depths of your soul
Our hearts are crying out to one another longing for one to hold
Passion and pleasure in a touch that we know so well
Kisses, hugs and nibbles, and my barriers seem to melt
Free to love entirely and stirring up the flames
My soul is blazing untamed and I feel not ashamed
Your skin soft upon mine and mine upon yours
Keeping these secrets locked behind closed doors
Friends in the daylight and lovers through the night
Dreaming of one another out of touch not out of sight
It is only a short distance between these two souls
Astral projection and mysteries untold
This ring upon my finger a symbol of your love
White gold and some diamonds blessed by God above
In life you were my partner, my lover and my friend
Today you linger in heaven but my love will never end
He gives me a gift that is most amazing,
A love that is altogether blazing.
No matter what the issue,
Always ready with a tissue.
Loving me is not easy,
It is not for the faint of heart or breezy,
For that he does not care,
Claims he has enough love to spare.
He has a smile that is sexy and sweet,
It makes my heart skip a beat.
In his arms I know I will find
A haven that is only mine.
Loving him is a great and wonderful pleasure,
His love is something I will forever treasure.

How did it come to this?
You and me down memory bliss..
Some where in between losing my self ..
I misplaced the dust remover off my shelf..
Now I will march on like a cheerful parade..
Smiling my big pearly whites, as you begin to fade...
I disguised the use, when you called me a broken down car..
Adjusting all the plugs under my hood, I reached in to far...
I touched and fondled every mound and tendency inside of me..
All my heart needed, was a bran new battery..
I found my own cure, reviving my broken heart disease..
Blocking the sunburn from jumping of my heart like a trapeze..
I got rocks stored in my pocket, that came with a guarantee..
Sustaining weight on my weakened knees, reassuring me warranty

That I will get through this, without you to drive
I have a map of the world, traced on my thighs…
You may have held the moon, but not anymore
There are millions of galaxies for me to explore …
Once I face the dark and horrible truth
That I didn’t like who I was, with you…
That’s why I shouldn’t be starving, for your attention
When all you gave me, were paltry inventions…
Instead I’ll wave bye, at my shriveled heart’s cost
And immediately stop sniffing, our love’s exhaust…
In time you’ll be nothing but a tumbleweed
A random thought I won’t even keep…
When I’m fully restored, you’ll be left in the dust
And I’ll be stronger than I ever was …

No valentine on Valentine's.
I haven't met one yet.
Each year I wait another
for a person I've not met.
There's nothing I've done wrong:
yet waiting is in vain.
And all that's left is hope
that love's a ball and chain.
Who am I?
Am I defined by what is near in sight?
Am I defined by what I have done,
Or am I defined by what I could become?
Perhaps I'm of no use.
To him, or her, or I, nor you.
Or perhaps I'm too misunderstood to be defined,
And it is something like understanding that comes in time.
And if to the world I'm never shown,
Yet in my own light I've grown and grown,
And so I can know no happiness but my own--
The reason for my smile, to you, will forever be unknown.
I do not pray for the world to know my name.
For it and verse; the letters are the same.
And if a man should find his sorrow in what he reads,
I pray his pain my words to keep.
Should his eyes rain on my page,
Better tears than storms of rage.
And if a man should find his sorrow in what he reads.
I pray his pain my words to keep.
And if to the world you're never shown,
Yet in your own light you've grown and grown,
And so you know no happiness but your own.
Let the reason for your smile, to you, only be known.

We wake up to a lovely day
with lots of sun to lead the way.
Down to a babbling brook we go
while tree branches swing to and fro.
And we have found the perfect spot
to be alone and kiss a lot!
A checkered napkin covers up
this feast on which we soon will sup.
All sorts of good food did I bring
to feed my lover and my king!
There's fried chicken,fresh fruit and cheese
with lots of goodies made to please.
We have a bottle of sweet wine
to sip on as we sit and dine.
The birds are singing in the sky;
they're serenading he and I.
There's so much beauty in this place
and love light shining on his face.
A perfect day starts to wind down
as we pack up and head to town.
The memory of this day will last
long after summertime has passed.

Illuminating to it's tongue's pallet's plate
Open carriage rides
Falling flakes in the eyes
City strewn lights
Hoof's echoing through out the night

Four miles of bridal paths
Drawn coaches to bring you back

Why do you want me to take you back,
If I neglected you and favored the cat?
Why are you down on your knees, in tears?
Hey there goes Fluffy. Here kitty kitty, come here.
Oh what a good kitty you are. Do you want your ears scratched?
Does that feel good? Wait. What was that question she asked?
Hey. Where did she go? Did she get up and leave?
Ah well. Let’s go get you some tuna to eat!
Childish playful, maziness heart. .
. . A loving touch of lovely art;
Won't you see the sweetly trimm'd
Everlasting heart been dimm'd?
Lovely heart been tucked away
Cutting edges, day by day
Cov'ring the soul, so brightly lit. .
. . With veiling that's so tightly fit
But light pours out the lurid sea,
Inside your heart shushed silently
Hold on to fading gasps of love
And all the sweet your heart dreams of
Again a small poem guys dedicated to my Darling hubby..
wrote by Mrs.Madhavi Suyog Pagare
Loving You is Blissful - My Darling Hubby
Twilighting glow of the sky..
Wanna fly so high..
Sparkling amidst the million stars..
chosen the crazy pal and so life is excellently par..
As like the blossom were kissed by soft rain..
Your arrival in life diminished all my pains..
God has entwined me..with my emarald diamonite gem..
Enlightening new vistas in life as like your next aim..
At an astounding pace time flew..
But When i didn‘t see you..I feel like..Life is been dew..
Your divine presence in life rejuvenates me..
Every tick of my heartbeat resonating wit your‘s or whatever it will be..
Your innumerable naughtiness made me silly..
But yep, your beautifying nature had an fragrance in life like lilly..
As like snow crested the nestled mountains..
You cuddled my persona..like a sip of fountains..
Being With you, Life is euphorically elated..
Full of high spirit and delighted..
Thanks for being accompanying me my theist..
Your admirer with lots n lots of Love:
< this poem is not about what is written, but what is not written
like the smile upon her face that looks nil and somewhat smitten
and lochs of hair hanging instead of with bows and lace
tell me my angelic angel have you fallen from God's good grace
has your garments of thread gone out of time
has your dance with the butterflies gotten out of rhyme
have you been cast from your lovers heart
or are you just looking to start over with brand new start
has clouds silver lining rained upon your dreams
has leafs dance gone frozen in crystal streams
time stands still amidst wondering thoughts
time stands still when lovers cant be sought

It’s hard living with a broken heart,
fortunately for me, my heart resuscitated with your breath of life.
Giving me what my heart was missing,
you revitalised love, granting the type of support needed to survive.
Never mistaken or misconstrued,
you are both honest and open in equal measure.
Craving no friendship other than ours,
we share a bond deeper than any ocean treasure.
When laying in the sheets,
I stare at you and find it difficult to speak.
feeling intense passion,
made perfect by our serene marriage at twin peaks.
Realising I am living destiny,
no longer shall my inspiration ever starve.
With a smile that overcomes everything,
I am complete; cherishing our forever love.

Pristine & white papyrus reams,
No more cradle words of my wanting dreams.
Recalled moments penned have been left at distance behind,
The dog eared papyrus now conceals folded words that spilled out of my mind.
Sad my sorrow dipped nib, that writes these rhymes,
Words flow and my feelings melt and are sublime.
Images of you blur in my mind,
But my love for you is mad and blind.
Agonies brimming ache festoon my heart a whole,
To be with you my, heart’s lone goal.
Yells and shrieks erupt within me and my love it screams,
On its vibrating decibels I try to cradle my dreams.
Waiting &Seeking a second chance…………………………
To sit in the confines of knowledge
At a desk the colour of porridge
An air of unescapable heat
At a desk the colour of wheat
The lure of the Mail Online
At a desk the colour of brine
Looking at Jamie Kirby's broken leg
At a desk the colour of regret
You're the air that I breathe
The calm to my seethe
You're the love that I hate
The one perfect mate
You're the way that I move
I walk in your groove
You're the pill that I take
With all that's at stake
You're the love of my life
Though you fill me with strife
You're the cloud in my rain
Confusing my brain
You're the hue in my clothes
So that everyone knows
You're the hunch in my back
It keeps me on track
You're the word on my lips
The sway of my hips
You're the way that I live
Though it's hard to forgive
You'll be the way I go
For I love you so
If you were ever my girl, how happy I would be
We'd go down in history, our names carved on a tree
We would walk the seasons happily hand in hand
Form girlfriend to fiancée, I'd take that marriage stand
As we enter our tomorrows, children we would discuss
To bring such joy to the world, by loving made by us
We'd grow every day much stronger, kids help to do this
Doing so much together is what's called family bliss
To see our kids prosper, and make their mark in life
As I view life's peripheral, I'm so glad you became my wife
It started out as a harmless flirtation
Nothing serious for three week’s of vacation
But Fall’s cool breeze must have blown love in
For we instantly connected, our souls akin
Soon we were spending all of our days together
And I knew he wasn’t just strutting his feathers
He liked me for me and he was genuine too,
I wasn’t his “toots,” his “babe,” or “hey you”
And suddenly the world was a novelty,
One I had never explored, and was eager to see
All because he saw past my scarecrow disguise
And pulled out the love, harvested inside
The sky is grey, matching my mood
Overcast and slightly subdued
The weekend's sunshine long since gone
It left with the train, my sweetheart was on
My man does not go out like the others,
he’d rather stay in with me, kissing the day away on a bed covered in flowers.
If arguments arise, he walks into another room,
instead of driving to another house over comments he might assume.
His soul is like a wishing pool full of respect and care,
loving me unconditionally; always trying to make sure I know his there.
He bathes me in relationship soaked in milk and honey,
and soothes over my cracks to reveal a value more priceless than money.
My woman has captured my heart and made it grow,
fulfilling my life with love and devotion to make even the saddest of times glow.
She is not like the rest who whine and complain,
she more like a diamond, shinning bright through any terrain.
Not afraid to be vulnerable in front me,
she will cry knowing how much her tears will affect thee.
Made from the rarest and sweetest hips, lips and fingertips,
her cinnamon body and aromatic mind are nothing
compared to her saffron heart loaded with marriage clips.

Alone He'll Bask in The Essence of Brief Tranquility,
Forgetting the Usually Governing Turbulence.
Alcohol Slips So Sweetly into The System, That
Uncontrollable Tears Dampen the Cheeks.
- Why is it Sadness is so aroused -
- By Tranquility -
He's Calm By Nature, But The Viciousness of The
World and its People Maximizes his Barbs.
He Saw So Much of Himself in His Enemies, and
It Broke Him.
-A Simple Clash of Mentality Congruency -
- With a Complete Division of Physical Embodiment -
He Sat Calm, in an Ocean of Thought, Mediating His
Thoughts Processes. She Encompasses all Aspects.
Every Second That Passed Was Built of Her, He Could
Taste Her Lips on His. He Closed His Eyes, and Smiled.
- Her Kisses, Salted From Their Travel -
- Over Many Oceans -
He Played Her Song, and The Strings Vibrated
Louder Than His Thoughts Ever Would.
He Smiled and
Licked His Lips.
On my knees in my bedroom, surrounded by
Emotions too strong, no wonder I cry
We had only just met, a few months ago
I gave unto he, as he internally showed
Week by week, my heart captured by he
We even carved our names, in the park on a tree
He told me he loved me, so captured I was
I gave unto he, as he externally pawed
Naive, but so young, my life went with the flow
My heart in know, in excitement pump I'd grow
I'm fourteen years old, I'm not really me
But inside I carry his child, who one day will be free
The sun shines in your beautiful face
My feelings rise and my thoughts race
I've earned a place with you I know
I planted the seed and watched it grow
After all the life that I've been through
The road has led me here to you
Inside my reach I'll wrap you up
To drink here from my loving cup
Speak to me in words of love
I'll send my thankfulness above
So let me feel your passion rise
Hold the desire in your eyes
Let me bring you joy my sweet
You warm me with your loving heat
Never will I break your heart
I always finish what I start
What is this she holds in blooded redded colour
In empty look I realise that my hearts in consumed devour
For inside my chest it rested, a now open abyss appears
Pains of hurting scream as she revels through her cheers
Calculated and callous, the bitch within her shines
Confirming men and me in unison, in total undermine
As I fall to my knees in blooded redded colour
She's callous torn and twisted, as I live my final hour
She’ll trumpet a mid-summer’s lilac revolution
To smash and grab and take your affection
A twinkled-eyed assault of sweet-toothed pleasure
On half-composed clarity’s measure
She’ll launch a pillow-cannoned war
On every certainty of beauty you had before
She throws light around like a star in the sky
Even her sleepy exhaust is a heavenly sigh
She gilds the clouds on drizzling days
She makes hope smile by her vibrant ways
If her lover embraced her in all her truth
She would be her lover’s fountain of youth
In moonshine night of wine and song
With gypsy-like fever she’ll wring out the wrong
She’ll dance and in dancing burlesque
Ideals of woman and grace painted picturesque –
By the moralistic mentors of caged-bird blues.
How this bluebird’s a phoenix by night’s fiery hues!
In hangover mornings of tangled heart-strings
Within the houses of healing you’ll hear she still sings
Of undesired responsibilities in a shaky jilted voice
A dew-soaked ballad to sunrise to which your only choice
Is to cater to her jazzy Simone-like disposition
To every her wiled whim, to her warmth, to her lilac revolution
Your smile lights up my day
With you around it makes everything ok ay
Just a glimpse of your makes my
If you say one word to me
I feel like I can’t even breathe
Just the thought of you it makes my
It makes my head spin
If I could see you smilin
I know everything, everything would be alright
It would be just fine with you there with me
Her back, laced with achne, the sores
bulbous and weeping, he kisses her.
- Right at The base of her neck -
There was tandems and elephants,
Some sort of bizarre metaphor.
- A Blurry Representation -
She was his everything, a glowing
spectacle of defiant significance.
- Weaved by the stars themselves -
There is limitless fathoms to this
love, I'll follow you till I'm dead.
- But your wounds are getting worse -
I am at your mercy Micaela,
And this is my plea.
Just don't come any closer, I'm angry with you
You hesitated when answering, If I sparkle in blue
You never bother to tell me that I looked good today
You're my boyfriend, OMG- Why do you treat me this way!?
.........HeeHee! You kissed me.... It's okay, I love you
You know I'd never be angry with the things that you do
Which reminds me- OH GOODNESS- Prom is in May!
It's December, and soon it'll be Valentines Day!
I need to go shopping, take me to the mall? ...
... AGGGH! ... Oh, thanks, my sweetie, for saving my fall
But what, you have practice? That's more important than me?
I'm your girlfriend, nobody else is so freakin' pretty!!!
Still, I know your coach will be okay-
He needs to understand I need a dress for Valentines Day.
I KNOW IT"S DECEMBER! Why don't you understand?
If you don't take me to the mall- I won't hold your hand
There, there- that's better. And yes, I love you
Agh! Look at these dresses, Okay- the red or the blue?
You hesitated again, do you not like the style?
Answer me, boy, or we won't drive one more mile!
.....You're doing WHAAAAAT? You can't break up with ME!
I'm your girlfriend, nobody else is so freakin' pretty!!!
Take me home. I don't want to see you again
I hated you anyways, you're like all the other men.
There is so much I want to share with you,
But my words are lost deep within me
I have oh so many emotions
How do I make you see
Life is not always that simple
Hear this from my heart
Our faith will concur all
As we stand here at the start.
Not speaking to you is going to kill me
You there and me here
But one day soon that will change
And I will finally have you near.
The Angels they did send you
The day that we met
Our love will last forever
As in stone it was set
Come fly, fly with me baby
Oh come fly with me
We can explore our love together
And set all our deepest emotions free
For the skies are without limits
And the tree tops we sour too
Perched upon a branch
Our love is forever true
I never meant for this to happen
But I am sure glad it did
Hearing your love and laughter
Makes me feel like a kid
Please never doubt my love
What is shared between you and me
Cause I am here to forever hold you
You just wait and see
But for now, I have to be patient
And except our destiny
But I promise you this my darling
You are forever within me.
There is never enough time to just hold you and look into your eyes
Just one more second is all i need but its never there
There is never enough time to tell you that i need you
Or time for the romance that i so badly want to share
There is never enough time to find out about your day
Because there is always way to much to do
There is never enough time for your attention
Just to stop and say i love you
There is never enough time to find out all your wants in life
Your dreams ambitions and were you want to be
There is never enough time for you to look toward the future
And if there was would you see me
Theres never enough time for you to truly be mine
Between work and kids and chores
There is never enough time for me to be satisfied
You always leave me wanting more
There will never be enough time to tell you all my wants in life
Or how i have the next three years planned
Theres never enough time for uss
And i dont think you'll ever understand
The most incredibly ironic scene
To everyone, it is quite obscene
A scene where a lover has to kill
Their soul mate, against their own will
They were trapped in a wicked game
One must die or it would be lame
If they choose not to abide by the rules
Then the world doesn't need more fools
The killing weapon is a gun
So that the injury cant be undone
How is it you're supposed to choose
When your loved one you can't lose?
The two truly loved each other
They can't settle for another
Their code was always and forever
Now, will it ever happen? Never!
She wants them both to stay alive
But she's in denial, both can't survive
She doesn't know what to do
It's just a dream, none of this is true
She closes her eyes wanting to wake
This cruelty she can hardly take
She sits still and cries a river of tears
Struggling to control her own fears
He's already made his choice
But he doesn't want to lose his voice
The pain he's going through is surreal
He wished, it, he could seal
Facing his fears, he walks the line
He convinces himself everything is fine
Walks to her with all his might
His temptation, he must fight
He embraces her, he can't lie
Because one of them has to die
He can't lie and say it'll be okay
Can't charm her with his usual way
He pulls the gun to his head
Logic from his brain has fled
She grabs the gun and yells "no"
The gun has become their mistletoe
Felt like forever, a final kiss
with an eternal bliss
"But honey, you're the one to live
Protecting you is all i have to give"
He puts the gun in her hands
"C'mon do it" is all that he demands
He puts her finger in the trigger
Pulls it, a small bullet with a, damage, bigger
The shot, echoing still in her ear
While he mouthed "kill me dear"
The World is Too Big For Just Two People:
To The Girl Who Showed Me That Love is
To The Girl Who Found Me Through Swarms
To The Girl Who Explained That Love and Life,
Can Only Ever Be Relative.
To The Girl Whose Glance Sends an Icy Prickle
Shimmering Across My Skin.
For The Girl Who Taught Me, That If You Couldn't
Feel a Persons Heart Beating Against Your Chest,
... They Weren't Close Enough.
Ladies say he's just lazy; he needs to get a job,
fellas say she's too crazy; she’ll scream then she’ll sob.
He’s a man who's a man-hoe; messing around with all these girls,
she's a flat out gold digger; simply in it for the pearls.
Ladies complain he's insensitive; he needs to learn to care,
fellas moan about her attitude; face her wrath if you dare.
A bunch of baby momma drama, is that you will get from him,
kids running around like a nursery, is that you'll find when she lets you in.
She say's he doesn't make her feel special, and is contemplating the breakup,
he replies that she's full of herself; looking like a clown with all that make-up.
He lacks the ambition to ever do something with his life,
she's just plain heartless to ever be considered as a wife.
He keeps looking at her friends; acting like he's going to make a move,
she's already had his brother, so there's nothing left for her to prove.
Girls say he's single minded; he's only after one thing,
boys say she's a lead along; they call her pretty string.
They never have a shape up; always looking rough with their nappy hairs,
they always have a weave on; bet they ain't even sure what hair is theirs.
Women say they hold their nose; he doesn't know basic hygiene,
men say they're appalled; looking at the love handles pouring out of them jeans.
He's merely a grown boy, who doesn't know a thing about chivalry,
she acts like a brat, always expecting him to the give out his currency.
She can't believe he's a momma's boy; 25 still living at the home,
he's shocked by her expenditure; caught buying shoes with her loan.
These are not the facts but the stereotypes,
when women are considered cold, and men are painted in prison stripes.

Our cards are on the table,
All my Aces are face down,
My Poker Face practised, perfect,
In for a penny or a pound?
Now the sweat beads at my temple,
I've misused my Aces High,
By sneaking one off the table,
And pressing it to my thigh.
I am not a cheat by nature,
I would win if I showed my hand,
But unveiling what's deliciously hidden,
Was always part of my plan.
You've got me where you want me,
I unbutton and strip without pause,
'A game well played' you whisper,
'I'll show you mine, since you showed me yours'
These flowers,days and feelings if I take,
You rest without my dear green mistake;
A playful angel with his bow can partake
Of our friend azure with few clouds`steak;
If sweet and shy, young roses bravely bake,
Red will escape from heaven, for my sake.
So, other blond and gold attempt I make:
Sweet water lily, please don`t break
Serenity of inner blue with your rake;
Yet, yellow smiles happily asleep by lake.
Wherever I go through out my whole life,
I end up struggling with lots of strife.
Thinking that my life is a total waste,
Wanting it to be over in a haste.
I can feel the pain inside my own heart,
Like someone through at my a deadly dart.
The wound is easing deeper and deeper,
Will the pain ever stop getting bigger?
Feeling emo is never a good thing,
Cutting your arm makes a really bad sting.
Blood is dripping from my arms and my heart,
Failing to dodge the largest deadly dart.
Drowning in all the lies and self pity,
I live each day but always feel sh*tty.
I have lots of thoughts about suicide,
But then I think about those who have died.
Those who have died not just from suicide,
But also those who are really nice guys.
...This "poem" was actually suppose to be a couplet (on any thing you want) for my english
class but i made this kind bcuz i was feeling emo that day...and also after i was done i read it
over and it almost sound like a rap song which, i guess, is kinda funny and cool.........
There was a moment in time when everything stopped,
It was like a dream on an entirety with you.
It there could be a moment to take back the regret, heartbreak and confusion I doubt I would.
I fear telling you how much I love you.
Thinking it ruin are forever relationship,Not knowing it was mutual. May we be of flesh may we be of soul may we have that savior peace.
What rules then are our own?
If we break that promise which bond each with a letter in blood.
As time stop the wind blows,we who bore so close taking the finally blow.
As we gaze into each to each tear streak face we smile and know.
Today we can be together forever in each other arm.
As though time kept going but for us,it stopped.So our moment int time where only the wind blew.
This is the most wonderful dream we have ever shared.
My poor heart didn't realize,
My brain was so quick to deceive,
Curious feet jumped in love side by side,
At my age, so naive.
Really? ? It didn't matter,
If my heart broke clean in two?
My memory proclaimed heartbreak wasn't that bad,
Now it's changed its point of view.
I remembered loss as a tiny sting,
A little bump to my ego,
A heartache I had in my twenties,
With a boyfriend I had outgrown.
Oh boy I would have listened,
If my instincts shouted NO!
But they didn't because they were in on it,
They too wanted to know…
If my heart really knew what love was,
Had I stared devotion in the face?
Had I really merged with another,
With a commitment time can't erase?
And now we all know the answers,
Thanks a lot you guys!
He's gone and my heart has turned ice cold,
Its centre runs hard and dry.
I have suffered the loss of my one true mate,
A mirrored, beating heart,
At least in the past my heart kind of felt whole,
I was unaware it was only half.
Although ignorant bliss has been taken from me,
All protection has been stripped,
The lesson has made me feel quite grown up,
But curiousity my friend, is a *****!
To Live Together
By Rick Rucker
I hate to have to live alone,
Our love must be shared, on the phone,
Meeting seldom, but as we can,
Not a fun prospect for this crazy man!
She knows that I love her, can’t stand to be apart,
Not since she captured my Mind, and my Heart,
Just lately, we have found a ray of hope,
Drowning in the Sea of Love, we found a lifeguard’s rope,
We found a place where we could live,
To each other, our Love we would give,
To awaken with her next to me,
I would be so glad, and anguish free,
I did not even have to scheme,
To be able to realize this dream,
Luckily, for the both of us,
She goes about business, without fuss!
When she asked me if I wanted to live together,
I told her, my response dealt with when, and not whether!
I told her, it would take me minutes to pack,
And to carry my stuff, across town on my back!
Whatever that I had to do,
I would show her, that my love is true,
Imagine, the two of us, living together,
Through all the lovely Summer weather,
I love heat, her not so much,
She thinks that an ice tray, is almost warm to the touch!
Of the heat thing, we will have to take care,
I will run the heater, she can use the air!
Tiring. You’d think they’d stop walking this street,
with all the men who do nothing but bleat.
Hopeless. When has a cat call succeeded?
You’d think they’d stop after they’re unheeded.
Heaven forbid I do not once call out.
“Gay” (and much worse) the idiots would shout.
Goodness knows that I will never respond.
Who knows of more wretched men ever spawned?
How did this idiotic practice start?
It’s not the way to win a woman’s heart.
I'll walk past you down the street
I'll recognize your sweet heartbeat
You may glance back, or you may not.
Or see me `s love you once sought.
I heard your name inside a crowd
A murmur, but it's still so loud
Don't quite know if i heard it right.
It was just a whisper in the night.
We know each other at a glance,
Still. But now I've left it all to chance.
I wonder how we got to Here
To strangers, yes you heard me clear.
I know we're parting slowly, dear.
That's why the thought of you stirs fear.
I don't know how I'll live without
you, now to you I've grown devout.
Memories cannot be all, that i have left
That's outright theft.
I need you, and you need me too
You love me, and don't I love you too?
We cannot drift into the blue,
We can't be done. We can't be through
All the while you've been here,
There's been someone who was there,
To listen with bated breath, and hang on to each word of yours,
you might not have noticed but somebody cared of course.
Content to listen to whatever you might have to say,
Cherishing each and every word that came her way.
On her every heartbeat your name was etched,
but happiness was not destined for the poor wretch.
She wanted you with every shard of her being,
Without you, existence for her had no meaning.
But before she could fly fate chopped her wings,
And left her a shattered mess, the poor thing.
I know you hurt - I know you work,
You've never recognized your worth.
I feel your pain - its every day,
Please let your fears just wash away.
I know your scared - it's never fair,
Please realize I'm always there.
Your hope is gone - this feels so wrong,
Forever I shall sing our song.
I see your cuts- were stuck in ruts,
Please promise me you'll shed no blood.
I love your heart - a brand new start,
We never will be torn apart.
We'll run away - that flawless day,
I promise we will be okay.
She Didn't Seem To Understand Him,
Never Seemed To Grasp The Concept.
- More Distance, Less Control -
There's Underlying Emotional Conflict,
A Resolution Means Overcoming Fear.
- A Neuron Playground -
He's Just Scared of Losing Her, Its Hard
To Keep The Beautiful Ones Charmed.
- Distance Can Dull -
- The Heaviest of Adorations -
Tonight He'll Sleep Alone Again...
I am an invisible man.
Try and see me if you can.
Shy and quiet I remain alone.
Silent is my voice’s tone
No one can feel my pain and sorrow
As I hide inside of my burrow.
Shadows consume my body and soul
As I embrace the misty cold.
The reason for my unseen being
Lies in the fact I hate being seen.
This life and existence’s of my own choice
And I choose not to have a voice.
I am silent. Invisible. Inexistent.
Yet I am invincible, an immortal being
Larger than life and totally true
That's the love I feel for you
You came to me in the nick of time
Offered me something so sublime
I'm struck with awe,heartily willing
To let these feelings be fulfilling
Being your lover is my desire
I know that you can lift me higher
To places I have never traveled
In all the years my life unraveled
But now my heart is like brand new
I feel alive because of you
So let us enjoy this time and space
I'll keep that smile upon your face
This love you give you'll never regret
We haven't experienced half of it yet!
Torn into pieces, feeling belittled
Hearts hurtin, split down the middle
Dreams seem so real, steady wishin they weren’t
The same thing that makes me happy, can also make me hurt
I want to hold on, to keep my faith at hand
But deep down I know it’s been time to disband
Others see it and say it, I continue to disregard
I keep thinking I’ll change it, yet I end up scarred
I know we won’t end up together, never be as one
But the connections we have made aren’t so easily undone
Time with you is precious to me, I enjoy your company
And I understand it’s not only me you accompany
This is no longer a struggle for me, I’ve now accepted the fact
That I'm going to remain lower on the list, but I'm not sure I'm ok with that.
I’ll embrace our last year together as close friends, and hope the years will last
Too bad our thoughts of one another had to so deeply contrast.
Watch as your wishing star flys through the sky,
The way that your faith has been burned up so dry.
Watch as this barbed wire coils your soul,
The way that we love until we're burned in coals.
Watch as the dragon so fiercly stands tall,
The way that you know your opinions wont fall.
Watch as our beautiful family is built,
The way that we know that our roses won't wilt.
Watch as the wings mounted upon your back,
The way that a brilliance you never will lack.
Outlining a figure so fine,
A touch away she is,
Her soft touch to mine,
The heart in the pattern of his.
Still stays the calming night,
Though there's brightness against my chest,
Eyes flutter as she lays close in sight,
Her cheek I brush; she takes a rest.
Such fragile words up my spine,
Scars clear in the way I see,
The beauty finds the line,
Making her feel warm next to me.
Morning is soon to become,
At dawn she will wake,
My mind will wander to and from,
Till then my hearts at steak.
For this beauty to find so real,
Gives me a turn in my ways,
A reality check to steal,
Putting my dreams in a haze.
Her lips have a touch; smooth and right,
Precious and caring my girl is here,
Giving our journey a start with a light,
As for insipiration is concealed; giving no feeling to fear.
It's ok, I dont need you anymore
My feelings for you are gone i'm sure
Theres still the days that you walk past
I smell your scent and my heart beats fast
Or the times i see you sitting with girls
when my heart stops and my stomach hurls
But thats fine it should stop in a bit
Although at times its hard i admit
I hurt you alot, time again
I put you through alot of pain
But its not just you who hurts so much
I torture myself with the loss of your touch
Just a glance of your smile can be enough
Yes indeed this year has been quite rough
But like i said, now im fine
So carry on while i watch you shine
He came into her world unforeseen and uninvited
Adorned in Valyrian Steel amour, overexcited
Enticed her with promises of a neverending love
Made her turn her back on her gentle turtle dove
Heartbroken and rejected she allowed him in
Removed the smoke in her brown eyes like kin
He became her Khal, and her, his Khaleesi
Now they dance to the mighty drums of the Dothraki
She loves him with every artery and fiery passion
Like Lady Stark, she adores his honorable fashion
She caters to his every want and need with joy
Loves without bounds, inhibitions or being coy
Alas, he has taken too much ease, chill and pride
Forgetting to honor her, cherish her as she cried
Treating her as he would an errant gullible child
Regarding her heart with dampened love so mild
The smoke in her eyes makes it hard not to cry
She still loves him like no shilling can ever buy
Like Winter Fell, she prays winter never returns
Hopes his love once again unrelentingly burns
Baby, you’ve been gone awhile, but all that matters is you have returned
You approach me with a sad but pretty smile, and I know there is a lesson learned.
So, you want to start over anew and possibly begin a loving friendship?
I’m cool with that. And if your love is true, then hop into my spaceship!
Because, I don’t mean to boast, but the love I give is not of this earth
My passion is genuine and purer than most; for I am like “Romeo”, rebirth!
So come, sit next to me, and if you like we can just conversate.
Into the night, we can recite some poetry, for you’re the kind of woman I appreciate!
I can’t help but just look at you, for you have no idea of your worth.
I know a woman’s value, and you can be my “Juliet” rebirth!
At the end of the tunnel there’s light that shines and there in the midst is me.
I hope I can awaken your appetite, for I’m giving you love, indefinitely!
So you’ve returned with a lesson learned, and you’ve had the time you need to heal.
Now, take my hand and I will take you to a wonderland in my bat mobile!
I see that my Couplets make you smile; that’s how it will always be.
And just because you’ve been gone awhile, don’t mean there is no you and me!!
THese deadly lies pour down like rain,
Why can't you say your cause of pain.
I swear it hurts so bad to see,
That with your hurt you can't trust me.
I know that I've caused you to suffer,
And that we'll go through trials rougher.
Please don't leave me dead behind,
Because my memory's hard to find.
You're hiding something in your eyes,
Pray its not forms of goodbyes.
As you walk away from me ,
Distances grows away from thee.
Your heart seems so closed to me,
What do you hide that i don't see.
I never will quite understand,
why you wont open up and,
My heart it aches from your heartaches,
But I will do whatever it takes.
Terrified of nightmares, all the lies they share,
Show me my one love and how hes more content right there.
See him with another one, see him in his lust,
In these dreams I see him and I watch in pure disgust.
I cannot read my heart, nor my hopless emotion,
I cannot tell if I am still or if I am in motion.
I feel like I am dying, as I see him lay with her,
I'm starting to feel dizzy as things start to go ablurr.
I see him so impressed, as she pleasures him so sweetly,
And as I cry around the corner hear them 'cry' contently.
I know he'd never hurt me, but it's so hard to believe,
When I'm seeing everything occur in front of me.
I know its just a nightmare, it's never as it seems,
but why must I be haunted with these horrifying dreams.
Virgin skin and smiling eyes
lightly steps in black disguise.
The shadowed depths to travel in
‘neath lofted moon’s pale unveiling.
Spirited way on her lover’s calls,
sneaks through silent mirrored halls,
through the arch of guiltless pleasure,
down unknown flights of enthused lore.
Startled by the prickly shifting breeze
that stirs the ground that shadows seize.
Upon the hill steely gate unfairly wrought!
‘Tis the place where her lover sought,
and bid her in the high of the night,
through misshaped gate, past blinking light,
past chiseled warriors and over cobbled bridge
to their first meeting place the old garden ridge.
In shivering skin she stubbornly waits
pondering naught why her lover is late.
Her innocent heart not broken nor bent
doth not see what impatience may invent.
A tidy minute leads to a weary score,
a guard’s hour, and then many more.
Now heavy lidded her frowning eyes
play witness to the changing of the skies.
The darkness fades to the colour of rum
as she wishes well for whatever did become
of her lover, his kisses and knightly accord
to flatter her with the poetry she adored.
Her innocent heart somnolent and beset
lays its new pillow in the night of regret.
The dawning now bells jilted and wronged
for the girl was forgotten by the love that she longed.
I love those eyes which pierce my soul
They tear down walls; if truth be told
Set fires ablaze beneath my feet
Invading foggy channels, deep
Like smoldering lava, gazes burn
Consume my heart and spirit in turn
Soon, a puddle of chocolate in his open palm
Arrested breath hangs the return of calm
If I were still single
I will see love and life from a different angle,
knowing that what makes a wise woman
is beyond trying to please every man.
I will not look out for comfort and cool cash
from men who will dump me like trash.
If I were still single,
I will not put my mind on how to mingle,
knowing that single-hood is not a status,
but a season to be faithful and focus...
I will not flush the street with skimpy skirts,
only to be a cheap prey to some freaky flirts.
If I were still single,
I will never let my heart niggle,
knowing that I am not meant to be a liability;
looking for love will not be my priority,
I will metamorphose into an assorted asset,
to be found by man who needs more than a pet.
If I were still single,
I will read the tales of love-triangle.
Knowing that love is beyond deep feelings;
even sadists and rapist have...deep feelings.
I won't open my legs to some random guy
who only want to feast on my fruits and fly...
If I were still single,
I will let manners and modesty be my jingle,
knowing that make-ups can turn to fake-ups,
my man won't see a stranger... when he wakes up.
I will not look for a man with mansions,
but a man who has mission and clear visions.
If I were still single
I will look before I leap,
and not sell my self cheap,
my body is my business
my private platter is priceless.
if you can't wait, you are not strong enough,
I am a treasure so tender and tough,
I will crave a love-life that will last long...
I will wait for a man steadfast and strong.
I ask why you insist on torturing me.
My question is met by dark Egyptian eyes
That enchant me even in their confusion;
You tell me, in that lovely dancing accent,
That you don't know this word.
And then that you do, but are still confused...
You aren't sure what you could have done
To hurt me...
I inform you that you do not know
The true meaning of torture.
Torture is your lips, just the sight of your lips-
You bite your lower lip without thinking; this too is torturous.
Torture is the smooth brown skin at the base of your neck I want to touch so bad it hurts,
Just barely exposed by the buttons left casually undone at the top of your shirt.
Torture is thick black curls that beg for fingers to run through them-
You run one hand through them thoughtlessly as I'm slowly becoming undone.
Torture is you noticing, you seeing in my eyes that I want you,
And your own bright black eyes that taunt me; "So what are you gonna do?"
Torture is the sharp intake of your breath that tells me that you want me,
With out the hard pressure of your body on mine I want so badly.
Torture is the betrayal of my body as it becomes yours; it's without my permission
That my body moves as it would to meet yours- I hate you for putting me in this condition.
Torture is my skin becoming heated until inside my veins moves not blood but flame,
And you encourage the fire until I fear it'll consume me; I'm already beyond insane-
Torture is me begging you to stop, and you pushing me ever further,
Until I'm sure that the greatest pain I've ever felt is this burning, aching, fever.
Torture is you telling me that I should go to sleep,
Acting as if you've done nothing at all to me.
Shall I compare thee to the Autumn's breeze
Or to the Summer's gourds where they grow green
Before the spook day's jack-o-lanterns scream
their jagged tooth grins into the dark October night?
Shall I compare thee to the ice tray left unfilled,
Wanting liquid for our drinks to chill?
Perhaps I shall draw a simile
Of the sad setting sun you left with me.
Former lover, you are the Krampus' heavy sack
That sits in wait for the coal so black.
You are the roadkill waiting to decay
With every lie your venomous lips will lay.
And if I were to call you a deep abyss,
It would be a simple fact to miss.
You are the pit from which Hell's fiends are spawned,
And life without you has been a tranquil dawn.
I'm losing the faces, I'm losing the names
Quit toying with me, quit playing games
My had spins faster than ever before
As I try to decide if I should open the door
I lose sense of direction, I lose sense of smell
I can't see a thing when I'm under your spell
But no, I need to focus, I need to stay here
Do not surrender, though he is near
My hands are now shaking, I'm trying to hide
The things I wish I didn't feel inside
I smile my smile when you smile yours
But It's a scary feeling-
Knowing for me you'd get down on all fours
Please, just don't. Don't flatter me so
you love more about me than I even know
Your eyes intrigue me and I'm lost in them
Like the deepest lake, the glossiest gem
I'm losing it all, except for you
And if I did, I don't know what I would do
Betraying a friend is wrong
I should have known this all along
For I should have given you my trust
Instead I screamed and cussed
So to my dismay
To this very day
All I can think is I am sorry
Just know my eyes are starry
Because every time I look at you
I see what I almost blew
And it make me sad to think
That all in a blink
You could be just gone
And I would be lonely for so long
That all I try to say
Although it may be cliche
I love you, from your boy Jay <3
Someone to watch over me while I sleep.
Someone who will all my secrets keep.
Someone to hold me while I cry.
Someone to mourn me when I die.
Someone who'll help me conquer my fears.
Someone to help against arrows and spears.
Someone who will help me do what's right.
Someone to be my guiding light.
Someone to lead me when I don't know.
Someone to lift me when I am low.
Someone who listens when I talk.
Someone who follows whether I run or walk.
Someone who can make me smile.
Someone who is willing to just sit awhile.
Someone to teach me something new.
Someone to help me struggle through.
Someone who encourages me to be me.
Someone who sees what I can't see.
Someone to always point out the good.
Someone to say, "I always knew you could."
Someone who will love me all through life.
Someone to stay in peace or strife.
Someone who loves. Someone who cares.
Someone who will always be there.
Someone to do all these things and more.
Someone I can do all these for.
I have seen you bare through my dream fuelled eyes
I have stroked your breasts my hands ran down your thighs
I have kissed your nape my hands ran through your hair
I have touched your heart for into my eyes you stared
I have been beside you for many many years
I have watched you laugh and even wiped your tears
I have dreamt in awe in memory of what I've seen
I have confirmed to me that your everything I dreamed
The monster became a living, walking nightmare
my dive into insanity, no longer perfect, containing a blank stare
I should resist, the monster will find me, run away with me
Pretend to hear my meager complaints, force me to see what I'm afraid to see
Blame and guilt, volleying right and left, up and down
It's crashing me closer, with every step, I'm falling to the ground
It's all a game, just play along, play the game, play it well
Brimming confidence, dissolved in thoughts, of what? I won’t tell
Demons, devil born souls, run quick, run fast, stand my ground
No sense of fear, n sense of foreboding, not even a slight sound
High speed, pursuit of hell, bent on going, bent on crashing
Giving into the power, life's faster, lights flashing
Crash and torment me again, my eyes close after all
The beginning of the end for me, feeling numb after the fall
Is there a way out? I'm different, distant and moved on
Listen to the water, calling, coaxing into death, I'm gone
Endless, empty cloud; dreamless oblivion; oxygen, exhalation
Am I dead? Still alive? Broken into pieces, I need motivation
Reality closes in, walls me in; until there’s nothing there
Death comes behind me, containing a blank stare.
times gonna let me do things my way
leaving you sitting along the byway
Just one look was all it took for me to fall so madly in love!
Without a sound you held me spellbound and your eyes I couldn't get enough of!
In your eyes I begin to swim in the irises of your soul, which unlocked your heart's door.
You came into my life pulling me from that dark hole; and in your heart I explored each
Your pupils seem to hypnotize, putting me in a state of bliss.
In your eyes I watch the sunrise, and I can't help but reminisce.
I travel to another time, to another place, and I can't help but smile.
With this pen I write a rhyme, as I look at your pretty face makes each couplet worthwhile!
You have my heart doing back flips, which causes my emotions to energize;
And it's just a plus for you to have perfect lips to go with those amazing eyes!!
The dawn of my life came late in the day
She turned darkness to light for me I can say
Her light burns brighter than the shining sun
Befor we even met I knew she was the one
you see she is the woman I have dreamed of
you have probably dreamed of her to
I thank God that I met her
all my dreams have come true
her name Is Dawn Carole and she makes my heart sing
Her love surrounds me just like saturns great ring
now I am her moon and she is my sun like a solar eclipse
We'll be joined into one
My love looms still in your room,
a carousel billowing in
watch it like the dew distil
in a dream of passion before
My love commits one common
it steals through your blind at
with smiles so bright from dusky
leaving the rainbow glued to
This is more than a dream, feel it,
like the Icycles in Autumn, see it;
crystal clear, written in black and
not to be measured though a

All over her world I'd love to go
To mountains of high and plains of low
To Patagonia of the Argentinian tip
I'll let my thoughts make that trip
Off to the Andes and Mount Everest high
With my hands I'll climb and sigh
Over many oceans and seas I'll sail
Investigating all over in total detail
Journeys can take ages and some unplanned
But this is a world, in my eyes scanned
To all who think this is my holiday chat
Upon my Missy I have painted the worlds map
She's a pretty Pop Star with amazing and unique vocal cords...
why find a similar one after her heart has been broken into pieces?
No, Adele's solution is not mine! Do I need a quick-fix?
I'd rather forgive that foolish heart than remember another heartache!
In past eras lovers were more realistic, patient and forgiving...
and they waited for their swethearts and loved them with a more intense feeling!
People constantly change by seeking someone more gorgeous...
love can be fickle and nobody seems to mind, but doesn't that lead to regrets?
Entered in Michael J. Falotico's contest,
" How To Fix A Broken Heart "
To see what I can become is a death without dyeing.
Here and now I let you know, have no powers of flying.
Powers I was born with are truly magical and beyond.
Incantations I speak are from the old language in bond.
Bonded to the facts that self-gain, comes back three fold,
This seal in the book that has been guarded and untold.
I shall not gain love from any spell that I should make.
Neither shall I change or sway anything for my sake.
Though upon my eighteenth birthday, love came for me.
Now I must choose magical powers or my love for thee.
My heart knows the answer, so thus I choose mortality.
So I close the book, ring the bell, light the candle internally.
Now you know my secret I have held as well my diversity.
I shall love you forever and be your husband beyond eternity.

MY HEART HAS BEEN BROKEN, SHATTERED LIKE GLASS
MY SOUL HAS BEEN MISS GUIDED LEAD OFF ITS PATH
EACH NEW LESSON BECOMES HARDER TO LEARN
LOVE IS A FLAME OF FIRE, STAND TOO CLOSE, AND YOU'LL GET BURNED
THE DOORS THAT FREE ME EMOTIONALLY THEY REMAIN CLOSE
YOU CAN FIND ME IN THE GARDEN OF THE WILTED ROSE
EACH PETAL IS A MEMORY SLOWLY FADING TO BLACK
THE PAIN CONSTANTLY REMINDS ME WHERE YOU'RE AT
JUST A THOUGHT OF YOU WAGES A WAR IN MY MIND
HEARTACHE HAS BEEN AMONG US SINCE THE DAWN OF TIME!
Three and a half years
After “we” parted,
When “we” first started.
The laughter and tears
The times that we shared,
How much we had cared.
You would take me out
We’d go on long walks
All our sincere talks.
As I think it out
Asking myself why
Was it all a lie?
A couple months passed
We got back in touch
I loved you so much.
We realized time
May bring change of heart
Our very first start.
No more hurt you said
And no more lying
In the rain crying
Awaiting your call
Or knock on the door
My heart sure did soar.
Accepting it now
You never have cared
Everything we shared.
You just want to hurt
And play your own game
It won’t be the same
The memories will last
It’s all in the past.
Only time will tell, so I take a close look deep inside me;
For I know I'm under her spell, but she can tell from the words in my poetry.
She can read the couplets of my heart, and feel the smoothness of this rhyme.
I loved her from the start, and I give her every minute of my time!
She knows where I stand, and that I'm her number one fan.
She finds comfort in taking my hand, and calls me her man.
I'm attentive twenty-four seven, and I submit to her every need.
She takes my body and mind to heaven with such amazing speed!
I make sure she orgasms first, and then I finally get mine.
People may say I'm cursed, because I claim our love is so well defined!
But I know I'm just a man in love, utterly devoted to her in every way.
Her gorgeous body I can't get enough of , and she's become apart of my D.N.A.!
I make her feel secure in the warmth of my strong embrace.
The love I feel is so pure, and my heart still melts at the sight of her angelic face!
She's just completely amazing, and she'll always hold the number one spot.
She's a drug I'm constantly craving, and I'm her Knight like Lancelot!
So let this be the last couplet I write, and end this confession.
She is the food that quenches my appetite, and this is still Poetry and Obsession!!
This is for you, my precious swain
Sorry for the occasional bad grains
Despite all the different crimps
Glad we're still strong on our limbs
Remember that big major mistake?
Deep down in my roots they still shake
Now we live in the presence of the dark
A difficult route we must embark
Hold on strong, I will you please
Soon with time they'll be appease
The lies and sins that I had made
Wishing only that fear will fade
I always knew love is all around
with you, I feel my strength abounds
The eyes you gave is so defined
It unbinded my once blinded mind.
The power called love.
Is the strongest power from above.
Love will truly control your mind.
Make you lose your sense of time.
Love can beat you down.
Or your soul will float with out a sound.
It will make you do the strangest things.
It could bring you much, much, pain.
Question is are you willing to take this risk?
To love someone you will have enternal pain in this.
How about when the money, is gone?
Will this love stay strong and not fall apart?
Her presence as cool as autumn breeze,
Her grey color eyes do faithfully tease.
Her kiss as soft and gentle as floating leaves,
Her caress as warm as the one she receives.
Autumn colors perfect her body’s movements.
With precious curves, needing no improvements,
Her curious laugh that sparkles like the morning dew,
Certain words she speaks that deliver clever queue.
Even her slight anger intensifies my love so deep.
Falling in love in the fall places all issues asleep.
Autumn romance sets a warm tone before cold arrives.
Truly in this time of year, love endures and survives.

Contest Name Falling in Love in the Fall
In my stomach's pit is lone despair
My lungs take in the sultry air.
My feet, they shuffle to and fro
My heart, it has no place to go.
By day the boys they see me come
My chest beats steady like a drum.
My soul is spotted, torn, and bruised
My body battered, worn, and used.
Your eyes invite like fires warm
You arms, my shelter from each storm.
You hold me close, the sky's my home
Your castle cloud is where I roam.
Your hands, your touch itself will heal
Your skin is where at home I feel.
Your breath's the air that gives me life
Your dreams I pray will call me "Wife".
Your heart composes notes that bring
Me worth enough that I may sing.
Forever will you stay with me
To have, to hold, to loveth thee?
I see you sitting in your rocking chair
Lost in thought about a missed affair
The storm inside is raining hard
Torn and tattered you are scarred
Who is your latest schmuck
The one who drives a tiny truck
He better extinguish his wanting torch
Or I'll break his skull on our cement porch
Better find someone else to scratch his itch
The little boy who drove in the ditch
The storm didn't last long, but made a mess
To the pretty young lady in the yellow sundress
Lightning dances in the clouds up high
Thunder calls attention to our battle cry
Every time I see you smile
it makes living my life worth while
Every time you look my way
your gaze makes my day
Every time I hear your voice
I feel I am making the right choice
We started off well, both at the same time,
And both of our feet behind the START line.
Then you ran ahead, you had something to prove,
That your manly strength could outrun my every move.
But I, with long legs, set off sprinting fast,
With none of our young bodies ending up last.
So I ran and I ran, and I ran with no clue,
Of where in the world I was going without you.
The path twisted and turned, there was no going back,
How I missed you so much - did I take the right track?
Then I turned one last curve and caught sight of a man,
We crossed separate lines, but we crossed hand in hand.
The path may be rough, with hardships old and new,
But I have no regrets because it ended with you.
You are incredible, and from one through ten, you're an eleven!
Every sweet inch so edible, like manna from Heaven!
Your heavenly body makes my raging passions soar.
There's a huge dose of lust inside me that's hard to ignore!
You put me in a trance with those beautiful brown eyes.
I just wanna pull you close and dance, while caressing your thick thighs!
Your nice breasts pressed to my chest are softer than cashmere.
You take my body to the test and beyond the hemisphere!
Your luscious lips are a feast for kings.
Your soft azz and hips look so perfect in a g-string!
I find it hard to concentrate but only your body can sedate my desire.
Every delicious inch I appreciate, and you have my loins on fire!!!
I've had my eye on her for awhile, and it's time to express my desire.
Like Dolce and Gabanna, she's got style that's more exotic than sapphire!
She has such elegance like Princess Di, and I've studied her from afar.
I can see her in my minds eye, for she shines brighter than a star!
A diva with a fierce attitude and carries herself with such class.
I don't mean to sound crude, but she has a figure like an hourglass!
She's got more ass than j.lo, and that's a sight to see.
She's an angel with a halo, and I bask in her spirituality!
I've studied every detail, such as her luscious hips.
I'm told, "don't kiss and tell," but she has the most delicious lips!
I look into her gorgeous face, and wish I could metamorphose into anything.
I would be the smooth silk lace of her Victoria Secret G-String!
I even notice the little things that make my heart flutter.
She's like a cool drink from a spring, and she makes my heart melt like butter!
I love her pecan tan, and her erotic dark eyes.
She's cool as a fan, even when she wears her favorite Levi's!
She's passionate about her poetry, and everything she seems to do.
If she could look inside me, she'll see her name on my heart like a tattoo!!
I meet you, and your everything I need,
So ****ing perfect; the man of my dreams.
You have a woman, so we are just friends;
But do you know we can't live in pretend?
She lies to you and hurts you, so you eventually leave.
Greatest day of my life because you came to me.
I'm so happy all the time; always smiling,
But then you go back to her and leave me dying.
And now I can't eat, can't sleep; for thoughts of you with her.
And no matter what I do you won't take my lure.
So now your happy all the time and I'm miserable at best.
How can I settle for anyone less?
You once made a promise that if you were to ever leave,
The first one you would look up would be me.
So now this promise is my comfort on lonely nights;
Cold comfort it is, since I have lost the fight.
I dream of the day when you will be mine,
When my happiness returns and everything is fine.
Even though I'm deluding myself with this,
It's all I have left along with the memory of your kiss.
One day it will stop, and i'll take your hand
We will run real fast, to a far away land
Everything will be good, and we will smile
Everything we have done, will have been worthwhile
In this land
there's no lies
In this land
In this land
We'll be okay
In this land
We will stay
Upon this day, the clouds part for stars
We will watch and know, this place is ours
So far away, that the sun will always shine
So far where the scents, and the scenes intertwine
In this land
you'll love me
In this land
we'll be free
To this land
I hope you'll come
Cos in this land
I need someone
Sur la plage in France,
I thought I'd found romance,
My olive skinned beauty with cascading hair,
Smiling so sweetly, I tried not to stare,
Her body was bare but for a peach thong,
I was there naked, she saw nothing wrong,
We spoke in a broken half-French, word by word,
But thoughts unspoken were louder still heard,
I said 'I'm Nick' and she said 'I'm Celeste',
Oh Celeste, as you rubbed sun oil onto my chest,
Your eyes they were burning, they encaptured me,
More sparkling, more blue, than the Cote D'Azur sea,
I longed for your neck to feel my kisses sweet,
So I looked at you not as I massaged your feet,
Our chaste romance ended before it began,
Your boyfriend returned and I cowardly ran.
the rain falls hard and the puddles rise deep
your interest in me is faltering steep
I try to make the difference by splitting it in two
but my heart hasn't the strength mentally due
the energy sails quickly down the floodways
your pace keeps steady throughout the days
twilight brings the notions so freely back
and now you fit in so well without your tact
the sounds are clouding the crimson air
our kinship dwindles to not even there
I reach for answers to fill in the thoughts
till the day that my contentment is finally sought
adriatic fortunes told so frugal and bold
our manic sessions were initially told
twilight keeps time of what fashion spent
in good spirit of an ephemeral felt gent
Incited by her Allure Sensuelle...
a vulnerable man is noticed by all.
Quite by nature, I rarely frequent clubs...
loud music turns me into a demon from hell.
She brought me so many Martinis on the Rocks...
I drank them too quickly and took a bad fall.
The spell in the potion must have acted too slowly...
I showed her respect, but she became too sensual.
Discovering the foul play, I was dismayed by her madnesss...
she left in a hurry and disappeared down the crowded hall.
Entered in Jared Pickett's contest, " The Ghazal "
My sky is black and so is yours,
The cold sea rushes upon our shores.
I love you dear, we'll run away,
We'll run until our heart fades grey.
Their love is lost but ours is here,
We'll save our love throughout the years.
And as we confess our true love,
Our black sky stares from up above.
The sky is jealous of our pair,
She's jealous of the love we share.
But she cant hurt us, don't you see,
We'll run away until we're free.
I dream of your touch while you're away
I think of your voice all through the day
I dream of the day I can fall asleep beside you
I think of whenever you say I Love You
I dream you're with me every night
Laying down and holding me tight
You're the reason my heart is whole
You're the love inside my soul
I think about you night and day
And i know it seems I always say
I never want to see you go
I love you and I hope you know
I love you with all my heart
And I hope we'll never be apart
We'll be together for all time
And I want you to know you'll always be mine.
As I sit on the bank beside this clear running stream
I look on in awe as if I am in a dream
My girl, my love swims in the translucent so pure
Her curvaceous shape in the ripples allure
Breaststroke to backstroke as she shares with me
As the undulations of the waves caress her so free
As she exits the stream my eyes are in capture
My heart, my thoughts it total rapture
Her ebony locks cascade down her back
Whilst her body gleams for she doesn't lack
Towards me she walks through the greenest of grasses
My love, my girl the most beautiful of lassies
We lie facing each other sharing sweet meadow kisses
Our minds in unison knowing our bodies have wishes
Beside the clear running stream we shared each other
Under a canopy of green two souls in discover
Join me in the dark abyss,
Ravage me with your hungry kiss.
Break me out of these chains that bind,
Assure me it's not all in my mind.
I think of you night and day,
Why can't I keep these feelings at bay?
I hunger for your passion, your touch, you caress,
Oh baby please join me in the dark abyss!
Why do I try, just to feel hurt.
Why to I hide these scars,under my shirt.
Why must I feel, why must I cry.
Why can't I run away, why can't I die.
Why do I fail, Whenever I try.
Why did you let our relaionship die.
Why are we evil, why are we dumb.
To you my dearest, I shall bite my thumb.
Why can't I win, never succeed.
Why must i feel like my loved ones will leave.
When all falls apart, I'm left all alone.
Only my Love can melt my heart of stone.
Clear sky above, crisp breeze of dawn
gently blowing on our sun-tanned skin.
Lost in the autumnal beauty before us,
we hear the leaves crackle as fire logs.
No bird songs to greet the golden-colored sunrise,
only two lonely souls walking as it grows and shines.
Many distant thoughts of Yule and gifts
escape from us with only joy to embrace.
The sunshine feels warm as the morning advances,
a few clouds appear and cast a shadow on the waves.
This path leads to a rolling hill which we ardently seek,
from here dreams never flee to disarm love's heartbeat.

" Falling In Love In Fall "
Eyes in dream shall meet, as they lie on silken sheets
Where lips in moisten touch, caress in loving greet
Where hands address undulations, curved shapes of he and she
On silken sheets where they lie, in wonderful tenderly
In pause I kiss your lobes, you nape, your porcelain skin
Two hearts in tender touch, both welcomed from within
On the coldest of nights, we held in warm embrace
Our faces touching softly, in our private loving place
On separate lands we walk, but dreams can be the same
Maybe some day one day, we walk the same loving plain
How eloquent, you move your arms,
It's clear to see your natural charm.
That cause my heart to be alarmed -
And wonder can it be of harm.
Shinning like a golden dollar,
Looking like a new pressed collar.
While saying words to flatter me,
Coming from those smooth-lips, I see.
Seductive, full and luscious too,
I find it quite charming of you.
Though, I not dare to say in words,
Not sure, at all, you're of this world.
With eyes so eager to enchant,
While piercing with a slightly slant.
Able to sink a fleet of ships,
Commanded by those slim, firm hips.
With hair that look and smell so clean,
On such a body - very lean.
Oh, I must have you in my arms -
So, I may feel your natural charm.
Like Edgar Allen Poe's story, "The Raven," I'm tapping, rapping at your hearts door.
The warmth of your love is my haven, and I'm dying to explore the feelings I've tried so
hard to ignore.
It's a mystery that the love continues to remain, even after all these years.
If you look at our history, it was never plagued by pain, so why all the fears?
Even Ray Charles can see, that what we share is one in a trillion.
If you look inside me, you'll see a thousand prayers or maybe it's more like a million!
But I've prayed it wasn't too late, but I patiently wait, as I ring your hearts doorbell.
I pray you allow our hearts to communicate, for after all these years I'm still under your
No need to be unsure, you know my love is pure, so allow me to travel your hearts corridor.
You're my ailing hearts cure, and as I make you feel secure, just never close your hearts
Six months have gone by,
Six months I have tried,
my heart has grown so much,
Encouraged by your touch
I no longer have fear,
Because I know your here.
Broken bones have been unhealed,
But you had shown true love revealed.
I now know that I'm not alone,
My voice a\has found a brand new tone.
Opened my eyes and made me see,
That there's a heart beating in me.
You give me hope, now i believe,
That you won't lie, you won't decieve.
I also know that you're the one,
Into our empty bliss we'll run.
wanderin' soul, wonderin' mind
wanderin' 'round tryin' to find
that joyful day was put somewhere
memories of past seem so unfair
wanderin' eyes, wanderin' lips
wanderin' lands like oceanic ships
worlds away from where we started
surroundings unmapped, now uncharted
wanderin' hearts, wanderin' thoughts
wonderin' what we've sold 'n' bought
were our times more contented then
what makes us yearn to go back again
wanderin' together or wanderin' alone
wonderin' life's lessons maybe overblown
why do those hurts matter anymore
when one door closes open next door
wonderin' if it was all just some dream
wonderin' if its all a more human theme
wonderin' if we could begin time a second
wanderin' this world without you I beckon

Beautiful insect cupped in my hands,
Released to the air to fly over lands,
Assured that keeping you would speed your death,
You were released, I held my breath.
Gently above me then floating away,
Orange glow from my hands deeply allays.
Within moments of a lifetime, brush cut,
Feelings replaced by a punch to the gut,
Knowing its future like being aware
My shadow follows someone else's dare.
Insanity is sadness for thoughts of
Others better care of the one you love.
He’s found his groove again
His pen finds a fount to reign
In the smile of a lady, he muses
In her voices, his rhyme bounces
Her presence illuminates his lines
Her thoughts take him thousands of miles
His rhyme is her unfading beauty
Her personae is his poetry
Her life is his prose
With this poem, he offers her a living rose
A kiss from another,
A kiss from a lover
Will give you the peace
you require to breathe
A gentle touch from a soul
will make you feel whole
As you understand whats within
to learn to love and start to begin
Moths and flames are God's cliche
For sightless lovers and the price they pay.
Falling from up high, not knowing where I’ll land
Love has always been transient, like a name on the sand
But I’m walking in darkness; only spots of light in the sky
Enwrapped in confusion, not knowing truth from a lie
I was set up to feel ashamed, to feel lonely (so I’d come back)
Which I did until you found on my heart’s walls, there was a crack
You’re far from perfect, not even close to being the best
But there’s a sense of warm attachment I feel in your caress
You might not be the sweetest, you don’t spoil me, but you’re real
And somewhere along the way, somehow my heart, you did steal
So I might be in the darkness, but you’re my star in the night, indeed
The shine that transmits from your love is all the light I need
Tonight was real and also a dream
I was standing by a mountain stream
The mountain peaks covered with snow
Absorbed the moonlight and seemed to glow
The sky was clear and the stars were bright
On this cool and crispy winters night
From behind the trees you did appear
This is why I hold this dream so dear
Suddenly time just froze in place
As the moonlight illuminated your face
You moved with such grace and ease
As though you were one with the breeze
As you came closer and our eyes did meet
My love struck heart found a brand new beat
You placed my hands around your waist
Then offered your lips for me to taste
The only music was that of our souls
As we started to dance soft and slow
Some things in life are just meant to be
As I gave my all to you, you gave your all to me
It was magical how everything just felt so right
As our bodies steamed in the frosty night
There was no thinking ahead or looking behind
For we found the moment so few ever find
I should have chosen honesty,
as away from me, I now see how much you meant to me.
The tender touch often given to my skin so frequently,
now mirrors a distant past in this circumstance of common grief.
The colour of truth couldn’t begin to dye these darkened blues,
as my heart is decomposing from your wretched news.
Un-answered questions become the theme to my awful excuse,
sleepless nights recalling mistaken words is all that is left to do.
If only I could escape this prison of regret,
and begin to break free from the image of our broken silhouette.
Only then shall life become as beautiful as the sunset,
living an existence of joy, too powerful for sadness to forget.
Yet my insecurities left me too weak to say “I need you”,
leaving feelings aside in the hope you’d say “I need you too”.
My transparent tears cried out for the truth to pierce through,
but as a man, I was taught to never leave emotion as a clue.
In the mist of sorrow, swollen pride is all that is left,
recollecting past memories, my mind unwillingly kept.
No amount of breath could ever reach the pain of my depth,
wishing responsible errors could be wiped clean from my debt.

If you knew would you run, would you flee
Or maybe it'd push you to wanna be with me?
I often wonder how you would react
If I said I love you, & that's a fact
If you knew what all I think about
Would you fall for me or would you us doubt?
My friends ask me what I want this year
But there's only one thing they can't give me, dear
Cuz all I want is to hear you say
You'll be with me starting today
I was like a flower
ready to blossom
open wide with power
and forget every problem
hold me withing arms reach
your fingers caressing, yet knowing
close your eyes and breath in, each
of the sweet smells of our owing
take me away with you
im to be your sweetheart
your someone special who
says you and i will never part
now press your soft lips
right against mine
they're so luscious my stomach flips
while above us, the stars shine...
dot dot dot
you love me, you love me not
yeah i get it, we are kids
life is kind of like mad libs
but i just can't stand this all
my life with you has finally completed the fall
i want to be your friend
but the relationship part, has come to an end
if you still like me that way
then there is nothing else to say
i will have to leave your life
this too will cut me like a knife
but until you are over me
i will have to watch and see
so i'm sorry but please make up your mind
while all my thoughts i try to find
dot dot dot
i was in your life, maybe now i'm not
I remember the mist dancing off your skin
The silly laugh and sweet little grin
The fresh cool breeze of a summer night
The moon hanging high in a star filled sky
A kiss, a touch, and a soft gentle sigh
The reflection of your soul in your eyes
Soft words whispered just as lovers do
Knowing our bond is forever and always true
Holding me captive in your heart for life
You calling me just to say good night
The sound of your voice in a slow love song
Memories that will last my whole life long
Birds in flight coo's
Sun's hot passion
Valleys of green
Eagles that speaks
Call of the wild
Echoes of a lost child
Can't seem to wake
From this dormate faith
Have no fear
For vision is clear
Arrived at Heaven's shore
Was woken though by husband's dam snore
As I partake of your love I find you are a feast
You fill me up with all I need to say the least
The circumstance of life has brought me to your side
I'm so willing to go with you and take this ride
This very air I breathe is given from your lips
Nothing in the world will make this love eclipse
You're mirroring my thoughts and telling me much more
Never thought someone like you'd walk through my door
When I look up I see your beautiful gaze on me
Impossible to tell you how you've set me free
So let us satisfy ourselves the search is done
I believe you when you tell me I'm the one
Jealousy, greed, or something in between.
A belated response: my chance has already been.
A bird in the hand is worth two in the bush -
you being with him reminds me of the path I should’ve took.
A mocking jeer at my self-indulgent indecision,
clouded sense of self-worth, I truly believed I was omniscient.
Disregarded your beauty, the pure essence of your personality.
Sacrificed what could’ve been the love of my life, for the sake of my vanity.
Lamenting the error of my ways gives rise to nothing other than pain.
I thought I was a player, but got played by the game.
Engrossed in whatever seemed the biggest challenge, when it was clear-cut,
we were intended for one another and I messed that up.
Don’t want you to be my Rosaline, be my Juliet:
Otherwise I may lose my mind in a cyclone of regret.
My Dear, I tell you in words, that I love you true.
Sometimes I feel that is not enough, just for you.
So I am writing this letter in rhyme from my heart.
Though I show you, I love you, on every days start.
This is not sufficient, for one that gloriously divine.
Adequate expressions are lost to describe, .love of mine.
Gifts unavailable to express, all that I have received.
My Dear, delivering my treasures, completely as conceived.
Each night my goal, to slowly fulfill your expectations,
Together our souls; will discover such exploitations.
It's been so long since I felt this free
You're bringing out the best in me
My essence is yours to take care of
Travel my road and you'll learn to love
You paint me a landscape bold and bright
And walk me deep into the light
Sketched in truth and drawn in desire
It's the beauty of you that brings the fire
With you I want to sing and dance
I never thought I'd get the chance
To love so well and feel so free
You're bringing out the best in me
I've broken our agreement by getting too attached
I let myself fall deeper, thinking we were a perfect match
And you said to push aside my fears & do what I did not dare
Tell you the truth -- what I really want -- put myself out there
So in tears, I fell beside you; I told you "I'm your girl--
And you're the one, the guy I choose of all those in this world"
With those caring eyes, you looked at me, glad you knew the truth
You said "I'm sorry, girl, I think your sweet, but I'm still much in my youth"
And now, I sit here in a puddle of emotions as you part
You left all that was inside me, except one, you took--my heart
Where were you my love when I wore my frown?
When my mind and heart were completely down,
Matters not, now where you were those days,
All that matters now, how I feel in many ways,
A smile that sweetens my day and night so pure,
Words that you whisper, raptures my demure.
One touch of your hand lures me awake.
Your kiss, so soft, warm like a summer lake,
When we touch in love our bodies in tune,
Our passion secured, embodied in the moon.
We walk each hour holding hands, feeling secure.
Our sanctity guaranteed, forever love insured.
My lover, my friend, confident forever more,
Entwined, sensually bound, in fantastic allure.
I SIT HERE AT WORK WISHING I WAS WITH YOU
INSTEAD OF BEING HERE WITH SO MUCH TO DO
YOUR LOVE FILLS ME WITH HAPPINESS
YOUR SOFT TOUCH A SWEET CARESS
THE SMILE ON YOUR FACE THE GLEAM IN YOUR EYE
I AM SO GLAD THAT YOU ARE MINE
HOW I LONG TO HOLD YOU TIGHT
BUT INSTEAD I STAY AND WORK THREW THE NIGHT
EVERYTIME I CLOSE MY EYES I SEE YOU THERE
I KNOW IN MY HEART HOW MUCH YOU CARE
MY ONLY WISH IS TO ALWAYS BE WITH YOU
FOREVER AND ALWAYS I WILL BE TRUE
FOR NEVER WILL I HAVE A WONDERING EYE
AND NEVER WILL I HURT YOU OR MAKE YOU CRY
YOU ARE MY LOVER,MY WIFE,AND MY FRIEND
I WILL WORSHIP YOU UNTILL THE VERY END
ILL NEVER STOP TELLING YOU HOW MUCH I CARE
AND IF YOU NEED ME ILL ALWAYS BE THERE
YOUR LOVE KEEPS ME GOING IN THE DARKEST OF DAYS
AND I FEEL YOUR WARMTH IN SO MANY WAYS
FROM THE WAY THAT YOU HOLD ME TO THE WAY THAT YOU SMILE
YOU MAKE ME FEEL HAPPY LIKE IM A CHILD
WHEN IM HERE AND YOUR THERE AND I MISS YOU EVER SO
I THINK ABOUT HOW WHEN I GET HOME IM GONNA HOLD YOU AND NEVER
LET YOU GO.
THIS POEM IS DEDICATED TO YOU AND IS COMPLETELY SINCERE
I WILL LOVE YOU FOREVER DEANNA MY DEAR
Everyone these days? So sexual
Ever stop for a day and think? Be an intellectual?
People need to quit bein cuddy buddys
Thats why your relationships sink like its muddy
Enough bars to climb over the stars
Enough curses to ride to hell in my car
Hopefully one day i'll eventually make it big
People need to stop pulling my heart like a rig
People will never understand or realize
What i can see and tell with my real eyes
DO YOU KNOW ME THE REAL ME?
WHEN YOU LOOK AT ME WHAT DO YOU SEE?
MY HARD OUTSIDE OR THE WORK THAT I DO?
THE MONEY I MAKE OR WHAT I GIVE YOU?
THERE IS A SOFT HEART HERE IN MY CHEST
AND A BUSY MIND THAT NEVER RESTS
MY FEELINGS AS I EXPRESS THEM TO YOU
ARE ALL ME AND ALL TRUE
THERE ARE NO LINES AND NO GAMES HERE
I KEEP IT REAL AND WANT TO MAKE THAT CLEAR
I JUST WANT LOVE CAREING AND TIME
I NEED A WOMEN THAT I CAN CALL MINE
NO WANTS NO NEEDS FOR ANYONE BUT ME
UNDERSTANDING NOT CONTROLING JUST LETTING ME BE
QUALITY NOT QUANTITY ARE IMPORTANT TO YOU
AND IT DOSENT MATTER WHAT I SAY OR DO
BECAUSE WHEN I LOOK AT YOU, YOU JUST KNOW
I DONT HAVE TO SAY ANYTHING BECAUSE IT SHOWS
AN UNSPOKEN BOND AN UNTAINTED LOVE
KNOWING TO PEOPLE CAN FIT LIKE A GLOVE
ARE MY EXSPECTATIONS SET TO HIGH?
SOME NIGHTS I WONDER AS I LY AWAKE AND CRY...
You gave me a rose and now i don't like you.
Now that your gone that rose smells like boo-boo.

The touch of his had was electric
As he gently took her hand and kissed it
The kiss was soft and an easy touch
He was the man she felt the rush
He was the man of her dreams
The great charmer so it seemed
But he was really like a black tulip
That is a dark, dark purple that rules it
Underneath the darkness lay
It didn't come out for many a day
By the time the tulip bloomed
Her whole life lay ahead surely doomed
Do you ever recall the times we played together
Do you even remember the jokes we told one another
Maybe you think about those endless summer nights
And with the easy flow of the river the fireflies delights
I know you cannot forget our shared secrets
When my elder brother would look for us so vexed
When we raced all day and ate melted ice creams at noon
When we swam in the ocean so inviting and warm
Do you remember the years we grew so close
Do you think about the day you gave me that rose
I still remember the time you told me you were going
And you promised me forever under the great old oak
And when summer drew to a close our sad goodbye
When you went away never to come back my way
God sighted me and you, in this ring
Like two pearls on a string
I’ve seen many maidens,
But no one is like you even in the heavens.
Not only in the sense of beauty,
But in every treaty.
Seen many beautiful faces,
Yours left, on my heart, deep traces.
To see you is the wish of my eyes,
At each instance in every day’s trice
Let the people tally or depart,
But you are the princess of my heart.
We are just 'two peas in a pod',
Put together, personally, by God.
I wish in this pool of adore,
It’s your canoe that touches the shore.
Listen to my small sweet heart,
It, of my life, announces you an un-separable part.
In my garden, it’s the flowers of your name that grow,
No other sailor’s boat, in this ocean of love is to row.
Let these two pearls in the string,
Be closest to each other for ever and ever in this ring.

I've been transformed by willingness, and a desire
to move forward without keeping sad things in mind.
Confident to smile with surprise and allowing love to flow in;
faces don't avoid my glances that were unfriendly and sullen.
Something that happens unexpectadly can give someone an unusual thrill;
I distrusted people who were different from me...having no character, no will.
Followed by my shadow, fear captured me to create unnecessary fright;
my room became my habitat and escape from a society claiming their plight.
With no friends to meet at cafes and local restaurants, I closed my windows,
prohibiting a glint of sunshine...assuming it wasn't meant for me, but for others.
Glued to a wide screen, watching documentaries of tragedies and unaviodable fates;
empathizing with them, and yet convinced that I shouldn't have been grabbing at straws.
Hackneyed words came out of my mouth, a habitue' of negative and dubitable thoughts;
and filled with their drudgery,I stopped listening to positive folks, thus, doubling my loads.
How can one be transformed by willingness? Discard the habits that amount to nothing;
find the source of your uselessness, and be inspired by all who have achieved their goal.

At first we were just names on a screen,
Not a thing did our words really mean.
Two people just talking at each days end,
Two lonely souls looking for a friend.
One much older than the other,
But not old enough to be his mother.
Then one day he spirits did fall,
That I felt compelled to give him a call.
We started talking via phone,
It felt like we were not alone.
Both knowing each of us was not free,
But our friendship just seemed meant to be.
For a few months there was no contact,
As an end came to my phone contract.
Then one day out of the blue,
He got a text from someone he thought he not knew.
We resumed our friendship once again,
But there it did not end.
He started saying things that gave my heart pause,
He said he loved me just because.
Claimed he knew for quite a while,
Even though my divorce had yet to be filed.
No matter what given reasons for us not to be,
He says he is in love with me.
I fell in love with this young man,
Over the course our friendship span.
He gave me his heart and he has mine,
For him I will try to shine.
My young love is cleverly spoken,
He loves me, even though I am broken.
My heart was broken then ripped out my chest,
agonizing pain far worse then the rest.
I thought I was strong enough to handle any emotion,
But I guess i gave you way to much devotion.
I gave you my heart wanting love and respect,
Instead you ripped it out with the utmost reject.
Even after you showed me no compassion or true interest,
I came running back with open arms ready for your next test.
I came back to you for a fresh start,
You had plans to play with my heart.
No more chances for you you've been given too many,
Now I wouldn't even want you if you cost a pennie.
When did all this drama start?
Was it when you stole my heart?
You ripped it out with no thought,
Love is such a pain that's not what's taught.
I was taught love was to be splendid,
I think differently now that my heart got blended.
Blended into a puddle of pain,
which my tears washed away just like rain.
my tears are like rain drops falling from the sky,
Maybe that's why I always want to stay high.
I smoke to cover up my feelings all mixed together,
It doesn't always work so i sit here with a feather.
Writing down all my pain and hurt,
Writing down all the ways you made me feel like dirt.
I'm over you today but can't quite speak on tomorrow.
I gave you my heart but just to borrow,
I want it back now so hand it here,
I'm finished with you now I can see so clear.
I now say goodbye for forever I hope,
Only now I must finds new ways to cope.
I'm tired of hurting each and every night,
So this will be the last letter i write.
When we first became aqainted,
I had no idea your love was tainted.
I let down my guard and invited you in,
I thought for sure your love I could win.
I came with so much innocence and devotion,
You brought so much pain and commotion.
But still I believed not seeing your lies,
And you'll never know how much this boy cries.
Cried for what I thought was love,
I used to think you came from above.
Maybe it's true maybe you did,
Now I know inside your just a kid.
No I don't blame you for all my hurt and pain,
Soon someday you'll stand shivering in the rain.
When that day comes you'll think of a boy,
And wish you hadn't treated him like a toy.
You will remember his devotion and unmatched love,
Then you'll think he was the one sent from above.
You'll wish you didn't mess up your one chance,
Because with me you won't have the last dance.
I still don't blame you for all my hurt and pain,
Just remember who's standing cold in the rain.
I will never forget our time as lovers,
But never again will you have a place under my covers.
close your eyes and take a deep breath
take everything in and think about what is left
though your heart aches and your mind is exploding
you should never give up especially when you are just learning
relationships come and go
and as you get older you grow
learn from your mistakes
just be yourself and never be fake
live life to the fullest because you are still young
you have plenty of time so everything has just begun
don't waste your life thinking about the past
forget the things that hurt since they didn't last
now you can finally feel free
disregarding all those sorrowful memories
have fun and live by the days
don't think too much for right now everything is okay
At first I thought I'd never love,
that's before your were sent from above.
You came in so sudden and without fear,
you left with no warning now I wish you were near.
That's quite impossible now because of the way I feel,
I feel so alone without you so I stop and kneel.
I kneel and I pray for a second chance,
but I know to you I was just a glance.
A glance into happiness something we both wish,
why can't we be together just like the spoon and dish?
I wish I could learn to cope in a new way,
So love to hate you is what I wish for everyday.
The world around us is harsh and cruel yet i have a sanctuary within your arms.
Every time i feel your embrace i feel immortal to any harm.
You take me to a place where reality is fake and time stands permanently still. I
try to find the words to tell you this but i know i never will.
Words cant express the feeling I get every time i look at you as you smile. I want
to make you grin once again and hold you all the while.
Take me away to that far away place where up is down and left is right. Show me
the mystical land where day is really night.
I want to feel the time stand still and behold your supernatural power. I want the
decades to roll by with the passing of every hour.
I want to feel your touch and hear your voice and look upon everlasting beauty. I'm
powerless in your presence, if I could only find a way for you to see.
To show you how i feel for you and how much i truly care. To show you no matter
what you do ill always be there.
To dry your tears, to make you smile, and to hold you as you weep. To share the
laughs, and to keep you safe from the demons that will creep.
To love you more than anyone could ever comprehend. To be with you through it
all and follow you to the worlds end.
So take me away to that far away place where north is south and east is west.
Show me that mystical land better than all the rest.
Take me away to that far away place where the only thing i know is true, is that I'll
be there beside you forever and i will always love you.
Because you loved me and I loved you,
Our love, I thought, would always be true.
I have always loved you, I always will.
For you I’d die, for our love I would kill.
You took advantage, you threw it away.
That’s not the kind of games I play.
For all the times you’ve now broken my heart,
For the many miles that we’re now apart,
I’ll look in my heart for some way to forgive,
Though you used to be my only reason to live.
Our love, to me, seemed like it shined.
Yet those awful thoughts hang there, stuck in my mind.
The love that I gave was special - like magic.
Who would have known it would turn out this tragic?
If I could make you understand and bring you to see
That I thought you cared. I thought you loved me.
I wanted it to work, I wanted to stay,
But giving up my pride, what a price to pay.
Where would you go, what would you do
If I said to you right now that I never loved you?
Although my heart has been filled with shame,
I’ve found that I’m not the one to blame.
When I think about you putting all those lies in my head
I get so furious! I can’t help but see red.
You say I shouldn’t go, that I mustn’t leave,
Well, what should I do? Just make believe?
If you still can’t see what you’ve done to my mind,
Don’t act like nothing’s happened and everything’s fine.
But thanks again for the good times we shared.
If only you loved me. If only you cared.
