A Wish -re-post-

A WISH -- In Memory Of 

"I Wish"

I wish I could blow air into your little lungs, 
The day my daughter brought your stillborn body into this world. 
Hold your little body warm, 
And tell my little girl you have her cute little nose....
Count your little fingers, and kiss your little toes....

I wish, 
I could look into your daring eyes, 
Facing a little boy, who's ready for this world
I wish,
I could tell my daughter you have her beautiful brown eyes...
Sadly, it’s not like that.
How can I tell my daughter everything will be all right?
When a piece of my heart was stolen with her's,
When giving birth to her son, my grandson 
March 25, 2013---- How it Hurts! 
~~~
O’ how I wish, you entered this world crying
Instead, we're the ones left in tears of sorrow
~~~
How I wish you could be, 
And not this feeling you left inside
How I wish, God could explain why o' why o' why?

Mostly, I WISH grandma could fix this, and make 
your mommy feel, the joy she was robbed of.

In memory of my grandson: ---Bael Lesley G.
Born March 25, 2013  ---   RIP March 25, 2013

Forbidden Love

Is it possible that an angel and a demon could fall in love?
And, remain soul mates for all eternity?
Yes, and I will tell you how it happened.

Maybe, it was a miracle that they met
or maybe it was just meant to be.
That an angel fell out of heaven and a demon escaped from hell
on the very same day.
They saw no one, but each other.
Yet, neither had ever seen such a creature.

The angel was beautiful and kind.
This angel had fallen from heaven
a place of light and life, and of hope and peace.

The demon was imperfect and shy.
This demon had escaped from hell
a place of darkness and death, and of despair and pain.

When they met, their eyes met.
And without a spoken word.
The angel saw only tenderness and hurt in this lost demon.
The demon saw only compassion and love in this lost angel.

It did not matter to them if one had wings, and the other had horns.
Yet, they saw themselves within each other.
Even though they were from two different worlds.
They embraced each other.
Though, they knew their love was forbidden by others like themselves.
So, they decided to remain here on earth.
Where their bond could not be broken.

The heart of the angel was no longer filled with loneliness and longing.
The heart of the demon was no longer filled with torment and sorrow.
Love is what they both were searching for.
And it was found on that very same day.
A forbidden love, everlasting for all eternity.

Pretty Poet

Where Have All The Pretty Poets Gone? 

A real poet are you, charismatic over everything you serve
Showcasing, a rainbow that folds the perfect world wide perspective
I'm talking about flawless literature at its best no typos, no muss
Just a page full of boredom and rust
Thank you for having Lunesta all up in my head
It's like reading a poetry lesson, from the extras of The Walking Dead
An image frozen cold, waiting for inspiration to hit like Al Capone
I'm bored of your flora flamboyant language rocking me like stones
A psychedelic trip, into the odyssey of a blind man's tale
A home where I am pushed to open a dictionary & thesaurus with braille
Wondering what you just said, --Hakuna Matata, what a wonderful day! 
  
The best rocket pen poet in the USA Today, 
Launching words like no tomorrow, a fool of wordplay and sorrow
A godlike guinea-pig genius, delegating poetry politician style
Perhaps, one day you will become a famous writer
Burning books, like a cigarette lighter
Until then, enjoy pushing your pen as if it was cocaine, 
Snorting up and cutting up the food chain in vain
Patronizing and ignoring those, for better or worse
A solo cup stuck up another cup, -won't even look my way
Correct me if you will, it's no big deal
Just don't forget to give me the same respect I offer you

Until then my pretty poetic friend, I kneel before no one

The Ugly Beauty Queen

Your ass is slightly enlarged
Your hips are somewhat wide
You have wrinkles all over your thighs
You eyes they droop 
Crows feet shoot me dead
With your dreary eye stare
The world sees ugly, over due and despair

Your chest is a scar
Red and ripe, disfigured and bare
Your time is up
Old maiden of the past
Your saggy story makes you a sad lass

However not all is as it seems
Those passerby’s who seek no depth
They know not the secrets of innocent youth
They drink not from the water of the wise well

I see you, so clear I cry
Your smile, your laughter and you wonder why?
I have fallen for you, faults and all
For me it’s your beauty that stands so tall
You are a painting on a museum wall
Desired, your smile for sure does enthrall
Your voice sings to the heavens above
Your touch upon my heart melts my cold dark wounds
The lines I see upon your face
Each a sign of wisdom and grace

May I kiss that scar upon your chest?
May I confess you that scare is the door to your desires
A place I dreamed to live from the start
Let me dance, let me sing
You are my beauty, so let me in

Love letters flow, like grapes to wine
Silently we sway to and fro, passing time
In my veins you flow, you can not run away
Needless dances of insecure thoughts
If only, if only I could have this last Serenade

The Red Babushka

Nineteen twenty-four and the wind was cold,
When men in uniform entered our town;
Forced us to leave in their boxcars,
Made us believe that it was for our own safety.

With no time to fix our things
We hurriedly got in the box.
And when everyone was in,
The doors were locked.

The place was hell
For not even a whisper of wind 
Could enter the place,
Nor could a light shine through its walls.

Our eyes were dry and lips cracked
Plead for just a single drop;
As four nights and days we travelled
Inside the cars with no food or water.

The box unimaginable in its very state,
For dung and human liquid fragranced the place.
Weak-hearted both young and old struggled to live
Even the strong wished not to survive.

And on the fourth day, the box went to a halt!
Survivors were singing songs to God;
“Please end this tormented journey,
And deliver us home safely.”
Light shone as the heavy doors were opened!
We dropped to our knees
Hoping the place was Paradise
But Paradise was it not for we were in Hell. 

Ironically, the gate held words
Like that as ‘Beware of the Dog.’
Written in frostbitten wood saying:
“ARBEIT MACHT FREI.”

My mind was puzzled upon seeing those,
How could labor set you free,
When labor here meant
Dying in force and agony.

Schnell! 
Jew, work or die!
Schnell!
Jew, never complain and lie!

Those were the words 
That became music in our ears,
As we bent our bones
Working for freedom that is bound.

Schnell!
Jew, form your lines!
Schnell!
Jew, the choosing has come!

And in this place we call Hell,
An Angel waits for preys.
Not to feed to its cherubim
But to the ovens decay.

Schnell!
Jew, old and sick!
Schnell!
Jew, to the ovens burn!

As the sun paints the sky red,
A gray smoke danced with the setting clouds,
And in the heavens, the old and sick smile
Grateful to be forever free from the Angel.

On and on, the days passed by
Not faster but years it seem.
Millions were killed by the monsters of time,
Feeding them to the hungry gas ovens.

Then one even night,
I dreamt of food, of home,
Of freedom and safety
And a voice calling me to follow.

I had no choice but to obey,
For in that moment I was already tired,
Sick and losing hope that once was mine
But seem to be forever lost. 

On the 16th of March,
I lied still in my shelf.
I slept forever smiling,
With my red babushka in hand.

But disappointed and angry was I
To share the very day of my death
To the birth of the Malach-ha-mavis:
The Angel of Death.

Another Angel by my side.

Soft and tender a precious gift you were
never a day I missed to kiss your 
dimpled cheeks , or hold your litlle hands
flowers, little buds that held a promise
of a gentle touch or warm embrace.
I know your face your crooked smile  even your feeble cry
I knew you  love of my life
but did not know your were here only  for a time.
You  knew me too I could see it in your eyes 
sparkling gems that flashed when you saw my face.
Now you've gone  to a place far away, to your home in the sky 
from whence you came and stayed a little while.
Another angel I have now, this one I know so well
I'll always remember your smile, and dimpled cheeks
your busy hands and little feet.
My guardian angel you've come to be 
one I was blessed to meet... to know.. to embrace ....to love...
 now I know you came not to stay only to make my acquintance and I yours
My  heart is sad for I miss you so my infant  child
wish you  had stayed  awhile. 
How I cried when you left and though my tears have now dried
I will always miss you though you stay by my side.
You are my special Angel the one I know best
the one I have held, loved and known, better than  all the rest.

Just to let readers know. I have not lost a child. I simply wrote this poem for all 
who may have lost  such a precious one.

Magic star

You're the angel dust 
sparkling silver stars wishing away
Sprinkling magic in misted gems 
dazzling pure trails 

White as the driven snow 
falling within a beauties vision 
Rising wishes blowing whispers 
upon a breeze silently touching 

Smiling golden gleams ivory
candy to one's eyes colors rainbows
Chocolate sleeping warm melting
tender soft satin feelings

Sweet velvet talking honey
sunshine emotions, beam rays 
Golden dew of a rose drop
upon sunflower petals smile 

Regal in light of day 
I pray in darkness of night 
you sleep well watched over by angels 
Held in the warm light of love

I remember

Someone once saying to me
I always wished to meet some like you
To you one writes poetry from the heart and soul
opening up from my very being 
Looking into the sky spirit of a kestrel dancing
on warm waves of air brushing deep
Just sharing writing sitting on the riverbank 
alone with my old pal buster my dog
listening to the mountain stream rumbling past
I see with you love a great vision 
love inside deep you told me
tears falling joy I had a beautiful soul
or is that not what you want 
confused I am our friendship
Then you said I had a heart to match and once said 
It just totally blew me away into heaven
feels  I am still not good enough 
I give you all inside off me
Love you are so very special 
to sail away in heartbeats off thoughts 
amazing each moment spent thinking about you
Into the clouds of silver lining treasure dream
opening in front off you
Holding most precious jewels first glance
crowning you this ocean's queen
Holy grail such a gem lights up smiles
beaming warm vision painting beauty
The sparkle in those beautiful mirrors 
dazzling stars just shone a whole new world to me 
Their is such a thing as love I feel it complete
at the very first sight instantly
I found it with you

Eve

Does the past really matter?
 Does it set you free? 
I’m absorbed in the sin,
That is surrounding him and me. 

Lost in the curiosity,
Cold to the touch. 
Drenched in the poison,
With my dignity in his clutch.

Feeling like I was cheated;
I chose the evil instead of light.
I traded in the sunshine,
For what lurks in the night. 

I disobeyed his orders,
I gave up security to be unsure.
I went against the warnings,
Gave into darkness instead of remaining pure.

Once my bed was made of soft grass,
But now it is made of stone.
Was plump from all of the luscious fruit,
Now I’m starving to the bone. 

My curse is one of circumstance.
The punishment a crime,
I’m stuck inside this dampened cave,
For the rest of time. 
My world came crashing down,
The grief has not subsided.
My heart broke completely,
When my sons collided. 

My misery a token,
From the abandonment I earned.
Upon the time spent in sorrow,
There was a lesson to be learned.

Have I found the moral?
Only in time we shall see,
For all I did was eat an apple-
From the Knowledge tree.

Lord thank you

Oh Holy Spirit you lifted me without wings 
I was overjoyed flying
inside a warm celestial glow 
tears falling golden love
Raising up inside joy sings a Host 
With crystals shining sparkles 
rainbows your light misting promise
I got so much happiness in news tonight
Blessed is You oh Lord
who has just brought me great light for a future ahead
one off the purest kind touched by an angels hand 
To feel a warmness lifting all pain deep inside
saying be proud off love as it's a gift 
pure Heavenly fluttering warmest wings 
I felt my soul elevate dancing on air 
lifting to the Heaven's in a song 
In your Holy name Master one bows in Grace
Clouds pearly white mixed with the softest blue
floating dancing white mixed mother of pearl
on air breathing warm angel wings
Rejoicing in one prayer Holy Lord
in love I honor beautiful
Thank you for granting me 
my lifetime wish come true 
truly a gift I say 
Amen Holy Father

Forever loving you

Sounds of a great mountain roar
trembling echoes 
a shaking voice,
flooding down the face
a river of tears 
inside each drop, 
treasured sparkling crystals
pearl jewels weep.

Brings new life 
as joy sweetly blushing 
desires your beauty ,
Crowned queen of the flies bouquet colors,
a butterfly dances 
floats upon a sun lighting rays,
touching inside with warm wings 
sweeping an angel.

Sweet gently skipping desire 
hot pulse beats star lighting passion ,
glows behind the jewels,
baby you shine beautifully bright 
warm when the thunder roars ,
beast of reality natures lion.

Loves arrow strikes 
deeply blushing red
under a pink moon ,
sweetly embracing together 
kissing forever spirit of the night
always uniting under your love,
when our dream becomes true
into eternity hand in hand 
one masterpiece 
walking to paradise 
adoring the picture within you.

Kissing An Angel

You've sanded down the edges of my broken heart.
No longer do they pierce me.
You've stopped me from falling apart.
Like shattered glass I was a cracked reflection
Of past loves that only could do wrong.
You've entered my life just in time to save me from the past.

An angel with a healing wing you have caressed me
And carried me into a better place.
Your strong arms wrapped around me.
The passion in your kiss
Oh to be kissing an angel...
I surrender myself to you heaven.

Burning Flesh part 1

Things begin turning around and very 
slowly they take a nasty foreboding twist
as Hell's Dragon has not breathed yet 
a deep burning fire melting red his eyes
dripping blood upon fury and destruction
pumping inside the uncontrollable fire 
equal to that of a thousand steamboats 
and only he sleeps in the dark dungeons.

Chained and suffering in utter Hellfire
chained in untold torment and anguish 
unleashed he would burn your heart no less
in a flash—while scorching all to nothingness 
fried black from the deepest ashes falling
cold silently sleeping with wings on fire and
chained to love’s weakness as the dark fables say:
Do Not Call Upon This Beast—He’s The Devil’s Own.

Hell’s Dragon stirs inside with tongues of flames
lashing with the pains of hate to strike all now
leaving hottest cinders and funeral pyres a plenty
it’s now the Devil’s very moment to unleash His Evil, 
His Demon Dragon upon the saintly and the pure
and the precious doing their good works and all
and unsuspecting of the malevolence awaiting them.  
  
The Devil enters afresh the earthly plane once more and
releases His Dragon to inflict harm and to upset
God’s celestial equation of peace, harmony, and light—
bringing death, destruction, and retribution to all in
its flight path while breathing out the harshest and
cruelest and hottest flames of fiery perfidy in the 
name of Lucifer—Himself laughing boisterously at God
all the while not knowing the coming angelic answer.

The Almighty Lord works indeed in the most mysterious 
of ways and He will not let his Fallen Angel Lucifer (or 
“The Devil” on Earth) have His way by murdering 
innocents through His Dragon proxy only too willing to
serve His Master to bring horrible hideous death to all
of mankind who fall within its flight path and intention
to inflict the most treacherous and dastardly plan of
of unmitigated death and horror ever to be unleashed.

True Blue Moon

These thoughts are crystal clear in feelings
towards a beautiful gem 
dazzling aurora of lighting color
falling into loves sweet 
everlasting touching a dream
The fondest memories come flooding back
walking along the golden sands 
with my dog buster 
him dancing around 
floating lovingly on natures breeze
Tears begin rolling down the face
looking skyward 
a full moon face in her pearly white attire
Winds blowing quite strongly across the ocean
touching inner humming whistles
Silver reflections of her face shine 
dancing in each and every single ripple
Light of truth is a burning torch
forever warm and loving 
forgiving always to the end
is this real I ask myself over and over
Watching you sleep smiling deep inwardly beautiful
putting my nose to your hair loving how it smells
for me baby the sweetest scent of you
Knowing smiles upon your angel face
this dream is it real pinching myself
Sleeping beauty I thought in that moment
A fairy tale breathing ever so slowly lowers and rises
deep gentle soft fluttering warm breaths
as i watch you sleeping 
One prize for a king who is lucky in love 


one I spent a while writing, finished it on a walk last night looking at a full moon

Burning Flesh part 2

The angelic answer of the Almighty Lord comes swiftly 

As Archangels Michael and Gabriel with their Band of 
Burning Flesh - The Devil’s own

Angels enters the earthly plane to confront the Hellfire
vengeance of The Devil and His Dragon as they reap and
sow their evil upon mankind, and with a sudden determined
fury Michael does fatally smote The Devil’s Dragon
while lopping its head off and sending its soul back to Hell 
while Gabriel banishes the demon forces waving his wand! 

With all this Lucifer knows with all due certainty that He 
must return and rejoin His evil minions who lurk in the 
infernal regions of the Earth, knowing that he’s lost once
more to the Almighty Lord in another struggle of Good 
versus Evil and has now been deprived of his most 
prized pawn of death and destruction—His very own
Dragon whose blackened soul suffers now forever in Hell
And can never be reincarnated again in its bodily form!

Within Loves Boat

Flying in 
the Heaven's 
birds softly whistling 
sweet magical music 
enchanting among'st

Smiling pouring out

rising rose emotions 
Straight in front

Touching

Can i ask 
a question love smiling 
in all honesty
are you real 
or has it all been me dreaming 
because you're lighting up all the space 
residing inside my thoughts
 
You're beautiful smile 
is driving me crazy wishing 
that I could kiss you
upon the lips 
my dream delight 

Or could it be possible
that I am a fallen angel 
as you touch me with your grace
healing a miracle 
at the hands of love

Heart fuel

Opening up 
with a moon smiling tonight
sparkling stars mingling with white clouds 
Searching for the soul's dream
stands a wonder before thee very eyes 
flaming hot vision

The one whom sparks electric
who will forever and always burn 
softly inside out 
a candle sweet aroma scenting blossoms 
whispering fragrance off beauty

Silver echoes deeply 
within precious silent 
soft humming whispers 
sweet singing to a rose
blowing warm petal fingers soft inside waves
who will always sweep 
sweetly across the ocean 
Touching deepest sands 
warmly we hold hands
Living in the land of eternal youth 
always pure free as the driven snow 

Dewdrops shines 
in your sunlight rising 
Sparkling beautiful forever
smiling a little something 
wrapped up inside just for you
pulling on the strings warmly

Princess Philomena 3

So he began spinning her the most beautiful golden yarns 
trying to dazzle and impress 
none of anything he laid bare appealed to her
It was then he turned and said
he would create the wrath of Hell upon her cursing 
each foul word striking 
The emperor dashed at her
he felt beneath her
commanding his guards to put chains around her neck
they then threw her in the deep waters of the Tiber
The order was carried out to his very word
cast into the murky waters
God sent two angels to unfasten the anchor 
took her straight to Heaven this gripped me with awe
how pure something beautiful is with love
She cries in our sorrow the joy of a rose
The emperor dragged her through the streets of Rome
shot at with a shower of arrows
I was dying she said her beautiful words
I fell into the sweetest sleep
she was cured when she awoke
the arrows turned and struck those that rained them down upon her
The emperor began calling her a magician
thinking to himself the actions of fire
would destroy this enchantment
that for me was a story of all stories 
Heavenly spouse with He who placed the crown
of virginity upon your head
holding in His hand the palm of martyrdom 
standing side by side with the elite in Heaven
She smiled this day when she appeared telling her story
entering into the glory was Friday
the third hour after midday
The very same hour 
Our Divine Master expired
She is now a princess of Heaven forever shining loves light
filled with her beautiful colors
halo all dreams and hopes in loves prayer



Always love is a Heavenly mist of light
stripped to the bone forever shines golden bright
after writing this I went for a walk and for some reason the sun began brushing 
warmly my face I could feel the deep gift of love stored deep inside 
what a treasure to behold flowing through the veins warm glorious love 
Pride was my downfall never saw the face hidden behind this mask
kissing humble I knelt at the lords feet
weeping begging his grace 
I lost everything yet one smiles inside peace 
darkness is just clouds within love always so pure when the light is complete

One Tune

Looking divine a picture goddess 
jewels crowning gems sparkling magic 
shining beautiful moon princess dazzling light

At a regal glance priceless cut, shines out diamond

In silver shadows we kiss holding sweetly our love

Silently this boat to you on golden waves 

Only if you wish darling 
one in a thousand dreams that come true  
you're the  sweet night in gale singing inside always now in your tune

Treasure Shining

A silver creeping mist 
falling one cloud 
capping the mountain

Like a great waterfall 
in a faraway distance 
I began dreaming gold

Inside the vision silver fingers 
pointing out spears slowly 
crumbling forward 

Embracing one pure gift
relic treasure memory of love
Warm sweet glowing jewel in deep beauty
Happiness inside shining diamond  
joy beaming your sunshine baby a star 
lighting one gem brightly dazzles a pearl


I drew with a 6/stepping up waves to 9 syllable count then we reach cloud 9/9/9 10 is the perfect ending 10 out of 10 a mad way I am trying to draw a jewel

I Love You Dad

One of my earliest remembrances in this place; life
Was when I was about three or four years of age
The fear overcoming my heart thinking if ever
I were to be seperated from or lose, my father ?
Within my minds eye I see a small child in spirit
Walking hand and hand with their own beautiful 
Father amid heaven turning back to smile; John
There he goes, my dad and myself left sorting.... 
About this flesh; bittersweet, tides through time 
Which touch every life yet in faith I know that all 
Shall one day be well; as I wave and into the light
Their beauty's go rejoicing a soul; wiping love's tear.

Dementia

He was always so happy
strong and bold.
He'd give you the shirt off of his back.
Tough.
Independent.
He had a rough life
growing up through the depression,
but like he always does,
he got through it.
He has two boys, of whom he is so proud.
Moved from Regina, to Victoria.
He had the best life anyone his age could have wanted.
But ever since his wife died, 
he has not been the same.
Sad
Lonely
Empty.
But like he has always done,
he got through it.
Mind slipping, 
just a little forgetful.
That's how it always starts out...
But like always, he powered through it, 
until now...
He is not the same person that I used to know.
He been sentenced to the prison in his own mind.
Possessed by the thoughts of his dogs ashes.
He likes to play the blame game,
but we know he doesn't remember that it was him.
He wakes up in the night
shaking with pain, 
tears streaming down his face.
There is nothing we can do,
Oh well...
Two more tylenol.
Hold on to hope
for as long as you can,
It's only a matter of time now.
He gets vocal, a very loud tone.
He'll block you in your room
and make false accusations
But we know that it's the pain induced monster in him.
Tick tock, tick tock...
You can't handle the stress anymore
you have to leave.
Just hope for the best, 
maybe it will get better.

Crumbling Pedestal

You rise above me on your lofty pedestal
Cracking your razored whip
Ordering my possibilities
Leaving your intricate patterns on my back
Red lace adorns your masterpiece

I chip at the base of your column
Choosing for your mighty to fall
You are unaware of your teetering 
Cracks adorn your insignificance
Your monument betrays you
True power lays waste to your beliefs
The bottom always determines what stays on top

Look into these eyes
See past your own disaster
My power resides within my compassion
I do not wish to rule your castle
Freedom lives beyond your gates

I was not born to be your enemy
Hate does not flow through these veins
Justice shall not be served by my blade
You instead scurry to the top of your rubble
Impale yourself with rusted sword
Fleeing your own salvation
You answer your ghosts
Delivered by you own injustice
No one left to mourn your passing
You believed you could go no lower
Unaware Hell would embrace you in serpent arms
After all you descended from your father
A fallen angel has no where else to fall

My Son Moon and Star

            My Son Moon and Star ~

        Approaching the celebration of his Birth 
                cherishing the gift I received 
           within weeks of conception I knew
            something amazing was in Creation ~

            the Stars held a party
            sending me with one of their own  
    Gazing at 3 shooting stars twinkling crossing the sky   
       It was magic  It was destiny taking its flight.  

           In love with an October full moon 
               drawing and painting I liked 
             thinking of Vincent Van Gogh ~
                caught in a loss of time 

          Hours going by as choosing my color  
           a wittness to three falling stars 
             A clear night sky sparkle's
           A once Famous Star was sent 
            inspiring the tiny child inside ~ 

           Never a doubt in my mind at all     
       child bearing was worth any pain received
      yours will be in a pursuit of a dream ~
             one to cherish and hold
          My Son was born the following August ~

    working on the set of Grimm 3rd season this year  
         as the set of Leverage for 3 years .

              Has done a Indie movie here  
             In Paris it was seen and honored
             coming soon filmed in Portland ~
                 "The House of Last Things "

        awaiting the credits , you will see
                        
    1st Assistant Director ~ production assistant 
   
                 My Young Lion Mans dream ~
        A proud mom I watch every show and the credits 

        as foretold in a whisper to me 25 years ago
              My Son &  Moon and Star  
               A name you will all know ~

            Happy Birthday to my creative Son

PATTY-CAKE ANGELS

When the sky begins to darken
and clouds churn round the moon
Thunder rolls in from the distance
and rumbles right on through
The rumble rising to a crescendo
as if clouds collided up on high

Then you know it is bowling night in Heaven
and the leagues are doing fine

The patty-cake angels look so sweet
in matching bowling gowns
as they rise to enter the meet
With their newest angel Beverly
they will shine on Heaven’s streets

Beverly’s eyes sparkle with moonlight 
reflected in their depths
She gives a little giggle of pure happiness
and picks up a stardust bowling ball

Feathery wings fluttering
she dances to the lane of solid gold
takes careful aim and lets the ball roll
straight into pins of finest harpsichord

All is still and silent
except for the rumbling of the ball
But when it reaches the pins
the sweetest music is heard by all

The angels are hopping
and high-five-ing all around
Kicking up their heels
in their shiny gossamer gowns

But one angel smiles the brightest
for Beverly got a strike

So when the sky begins to darken
and all is still and silent
listen for the rumble of stardust bowling balls
rolling down the lanes of solid god

And cheer for the patty-cake angels
whose pure souls and loving hearts
were wrapped in broken bodies 
during their earthbound life

Skeleton

The skeleton

On the day you were born
I have bestowed upon you
We will spend together a lifetime
Without me inside you compare to glue
Like the cockroach who always hides
I can only be found deep inside the skin
I am not the one you find in the closet
I am the one in a sack of bones

Created from the dust
While your other half, given life from your ribs
The man always returns to the dirt he is
The women remain in the coffin, she made for us
The Apple Eve shared with Adam
Doomed us to die  from the start
From the snake came nothing good
Just a battle of evil in our hearts
A piece of skeleton from Adams rib
A rib from Adam he made Eve
Eve in form of a skeleton, with a breath 
Our bones will never unite in heaven
That is the price for Eve's deceive
She gave up our human paradise
Hiding in each and every one of us
Until the day we die
Adam will return as dust
While Eve stays to show death comes to us all!

The spirit and soul left us for eternity
As I remain where you last laid, your body rots away
You slowly depart, leaving me behind
You are going to the other world
While I remain in this box
        SKELETON
Never to see each other again

REFLECTION OF AN ANGEL

I saw a reflection of an angel.
It was rather vague yet so real.
It told me a story of sanctity.
It told me a story of aged maturity.
It was beautiful.

I saw a reflection of an angel.
It was rather vague yet so real.
It held out its pure hand.
Reached for a strand of my weary hair.
Swiftly stroked it back and put it in its rightful place.
It was soothing.

I saw a reflection of an angel.
It was rather vague yet so real.
It took my hand and gently clasped it.
Pulled me up to stand on my feet;
And gently whispered…” this is how you start…”
It was strengthening.

I saw a reflection of an angel
It was rather vague yet so real.
It scooped my hands up in the air.
Slightly forced my head to tilt upward;
And with another whisper said..."This is how you surrender
To a much greater purpose”.
It was heartbreaking.

I saw a reflection of an angel.
It was rather vague yet so real.
It gently wiped away a tear.
Washed it away with warm waters.
Gently swiped my face with a towel of hope.
It was awakening. 

I saw a reflection of an angel.
It was rather vague yet so real.
It titled my head towards the mirror.
And gently whispered “this is a story of sanctity…
This is a strand of a life ahead full of exaltation;
A few feet away from healing that inspires;
This is a story of great surrender to pain
And welcoming of inner peace
This is a story of a gentle tear that will forever
Form a river of immersed hope;
It was divine fulfillment.

Snow

Snow sprinkles the ground
 
as delicate as sugar
 
crystallizing the exterior with a romantic heritage
 
only found in the heart of a child's imagination.
 
Like happiness it can melt in your hands,
 
and like happiness it can grow bitter like the ice you slip on
 
Forming miraculously to the curves of the earth
 
hugging till the land soaks in it's providence
 
white like the pages I battle with
 
Falling so passionately you'd think it was falling in love with the ground
 
And when it lands,
 
A blanket of perfection
 
glistening the season to a crisp
 
gently the sun arises
 
"there's no where to go today,
 
I'm just going to sit and enjoy the magic."

Angel of Death

Angel of Death,
Cloaked in black.
With black scaled wings,
Upon her back.
Angel of Death,
Coming for me.
As soon as I sleep
Then dead I will be.
Taken by the night
It swallows and consumes me.
Now I am the angel
And death becomes me.

Angels Sometimes Smile

" I heard an angel speak last night and he said "write"
Elizabeth Barrett Browning

Write what your heart desires
As I face the angel before me
My life fast forwards and rewinds
Many questions left unanswered

Angelic faces etched in stone 
Welcoming lost souls forever home
To where the light shines for eternity
An ending to their restless roaming 

Reminders of once was
Of what there is to come
Faith and love surrounding 
Angels in cemeteries sometimes smile

it was an angels voice

~~ at times, I get an odd sensation that I am not alone out of the corner of my eye, a shadow stirs once, I felt a hand stroking my raven hair as mother used to do . . . I like to think mother is my very own angel watching over my earthly journey as I wept one day I heard a gentle voice so soothing and comforting to my soul words only mothers know how to use . . . I recall being sick and oh, so afraid there was a hand holding mine, I felt it it took the hurt away I no longer feared the end so I left this earthly realm we call earth and wandered in the dim afterlife . . . but a voice whispered to me, "it is not time" it was an angels voice . . . and so I returned to this earth again to finish my journey with a new inner strength still when I am doubtful and unsure an angel guides my way . . . ~~ June 21, 2013 Free Verse For the contest, Angel

THE FALLEN ANGEL

A far away rumbling draws near,
An eerie calm, ensues all things,
Remain still. 
Silence reigns, nature holds,
It's breath,
Carried upon shifting winds
Hear soft whispers calling, beware.
Heavens valets brake open,
Thunder quakes,
Lightening flashes splitting the,
Clouds apart.
Castaways refugee, descends,
Pleading,
Do not forsake me.
Death's shadows dance to and fro.
A crumpled figure lies motionless,
Bare pale flesh, warmed only by,
Mangled wings tattered remnants. 
White feathers drifting aloft,
Aimless,
Sorrows innocent victim beseeching,
Forgiveness on bloody grounds,
Rough surf.
Humanities guardian, 
Regrets shameful,
Reminder a fallen angel.
All grace replaced by broken,
Hearts loss.
With trembling hands, bony fingers,
Scratching at loosened soil.
Here she makes a holy symbol,
The sign of the cross.
Forgiving lord, heavenly father. 
Bring me home unto thee.
In shroud's pitch blackness,
Beneath darkness’s abyss.
God weeps, behold gentle rains,
Merciful tears.
Thy lost lamb seeks salivations solos.
Redemption’s everlasting light,
Shines from above. 
Guiding kindred’s dearest child to,
Loves unspoken embrace.

wings

a dark lonely night
looking at my friend
the moon
gazing into 
the stars
wishing 
upon a dream

i blow a kiss
into the clouds
from the palm
so as when
rain begins falling
sprinkling magically
on you

kissing 
every inch
caressing the skin
taking me
to that special place
reserved for you

under the moon
smiling down softly
a star winks
casting silver shadows
precious feelings
dancing dark
in the light

whistling 
in the breeze
enchanting music
wings of an angel
floating on air
a place
in heaven

looking into
the eyes of love
you gave me
my wings
to fly 
with thee

The Token- Angel Contest

I see you bent low
Your head in your hands
Tears dropping on the table cloth
The heavy sighs that no one can hear
Fill my ear
Even past the wall 
Between eternity and finite time
I hear
I see
Your guardian angel is near
My orders from the throne
To protect you from harm
Physical….spiritual
To guard your steps

Yet...I see you have not walked 
For many an hour
You have been glued to that spot
Unmoving
Only knowing that your universe
Is caving in 
Forming a black hole
That is sucking in your soul

The decision is mine to make
I have no time to hesitate…
Overstep my bounds?
Or just hover and watch you drown?

The room fills with light
As I materialize
Hiding my wings
Not wanting to shock you
Not in your present state...
But you are too far gone to see
The gun on the table…ready
So, with one hand I touch your face
With the other under your grizzled chin
I make you look up at me….

Your eyes fill with wonder
You blink away the tears
Trying to focus
Trying to grasp the reality of me

Before you have time to question
I close my lips on  yours
And breathe into your mouth
The eternal qualities of heaven
Peace, joy, love and light….
A lingering kiss of life
The moment where heaven and earth collide
And I unfold my wings and envelope you
In a cocoon of heavenly wonder
I enfold you

I feel your strength returning
I will not let you fall
I have heard the unspoken call
Of your bleeding heart…

And as you reach your arms around me…
In that moment…I’m gone
Clothing myself with invisibility
Yet…. just as near
Unseen to your mortal eyes
But as real
As the erratic beating of your heart
I hover near
You exhale slowly
Your breath is on my cheek
The light dims
And you open your eyes
Wondering what delirium
Has come over you

Yet there….there in your hand
A token of the encounter
A white feather
That glimmers in the night

Against orders….
I will stand before the throne
And try to find the words to explain
This strange act...
I could not keep back
I had to guard your life
In the only way I knew how
In that unearthly moment in time

I will find the grace to answer
My reward… the look in your eyes
The radiance of your face
The knowing smile that reveals
You are worthy enough 
On a dark and hopeless night
To be kissed….
By the lips of an angel
A guardian angel of light

Begging Lips

Oh dearest 
most beautiful divine darling 
Like an angel uplifting love 
the ground begins crumbling 
underneath these feet 
floating I am to you 

In every warm breath kissing 
sweet sun setting delight 
you're always making me smile 
Even in the darkest night 
you're my fire fly 
blazing hot a dream 

When I am a fallen angel 
your love reaches down and picks me up 
Straight from out of the darkness 
that enveloped my being 
Whom rouses the spirit high 
empowering the mind 

Deeply dancing around this soul 
joyous music now sings 
smiling pure milky white 
would love honey 
just to kiss you

Summer Sweet You

Shooting in the Heaven's a fireworks in this sky
To love you deeply in this world in which you gave me
You're a hot exploding star even the moon smiles on you
wishing magical dusting thoughts the soul left my body

A fairy queen dream she who smiles in sunshine rays
gently soft warm sweet sweeping emotions touch me
looking across faraway hills sparkling inner vision
falling on a star shining out blue white radiant love

Pure burning warm hot bright dazzling my eyes with deep beauty
Who shot me down in a blaze of glory I kiss the earth 
salted sea falling golden spiraling cupid's arrow 
strikes sweetest chords deeply in the heart when our two souls met

In paradise I am lost in sweet surrender 
within a summer warm dream floating sent lingering
Hawthorn bushes drifting aroma honey beautiful 
summer dream hotly melting desires holding each other

Embracing you I remember thinking thank you
most precious jewels pouring for you out of a sun 
setting teapot pours out awaiting Christmas making plans
you have made my year so golden I am in debt to love

Devils fog

where did you say you're from?
south Dakota or freezing New York? 
I ain't got a dime to spare you,
but I'll offer you a ride on my wagon.

you better not be staying here long, 
have you heard the humours about 
the fog? 
thick as night on a bright sunny 
spot,
mutilated cattles but not a single 
drop of blood! 

and then we have those ghostly 
shucks!
for centuries these parts have no 
history of red eyes coyotes,
and what about those eerie lights 
hovering at devils arc, 
too steep for any mortal man to 
climb and mess around.

if you're new in these part of town,
wait no more and get the hell out 
fast,
no one here gonna take your word,
even if you say you saw Elvis here!

I'll be Damm if you live to see the 
next day,
and now sunny what did you say 
your name was?
my mommy used to warned me not 
to pick up strangers,
she used to say they could be the 
red eye demons.

why just last week my neighbour 
jimmy,
got his neck snaped back like dried 
old sticks,
and he's 6 foot 300 pound massive 
fellow!
rumours had it that he pick up 
some stranger in these woods 

say I forgot to ask you something 
boy, 
just where are you heading to? 
oh shucks and what ill time to have,
here comes those Damm thick fog 
now.....

Speaking To Your Statue

Emotions soaring into the skies
As the footsteps echo off the balconies
The crow's accompany my soul's flight
I imagine them to be your eyes
Carefully watching so you may be there
If I should slip and fall into the nothing
Their cries are your words of praise
And so I smile at my distant reverie
Standing next to a stone angel
Surely you are prettier than she
Her eyes are hollowed; yours full of life
You reflect the sun's light with your smile
In my dreams you chase the fear away
How is it that you do so much without knowing? 
These things I'd never say to you
For fear your eyes would never rest on me again
And so through these words I express
This love that goes beyond anything
The natural world may procure
In my mind you are my guardian
A statue ever resting in my heart.

Love like cocaine

Slice me with your tongue
Razor blade wounds
To suck out all my poisons 
Sweet lonely lullaby 
Accusing eyes of sodomy 
Picture perfect prodigy
My deadly sin 
A  bitter taste of arson 
Burning in my organ 
Your the pyre that burns away my mortality 
A sip of tea made from Lilly of the Valley 
A shadow of death stalking with 
Odd angel like wings
A numbing kiss 
Like downing in morphine 
My oblivion
Sweet arms to rest in 
Till my vision no longer holds 
eyes neither like hell nor heaven
Cocaine addiction 
That drip of drugs into your system
Intoxicated blood stream
Id rather not dream 
And instead get lost within your paralyzing - 
Your paralyzing - brain lapse - your moving too fast 
Stay slow and dreamy 
Dancing silhouette like a burning 
Forest fire, pain throughout my veins 
Ravishing and beautiful 
A voice torn from my throat
dying joyful with my last vision being you

Paradise

Paradise

I sat for an hour in paradise
illusions from the past fired high.
Wearing my ivory satin dress the 
silent orange grove was beguiling.
The sparrows sang while the soul of
their image fluttered past, holy men
dressed in brown suits, flying lower 
than my basement. I tried to read a 
novel but had lost any interest in it as
the pages just sang in the breeze. The 
fragrance of oranges was beguiling so
pungent and savory I felt flushed. 
I picked the tiny white flowers from
the tree and held them close to my 
heart... the fragrance, intoxicating.

Repository of Eternal Repose

Once I finish oiling rusty joints and dusting these old bones,
it's time set off on down the trail.
Where I'll head I haven't a clue;
by heaven perhaps to find you.

No, not some yellow brick road,
a highway for the broken and in-firmed.
Cracked and crumbled; musty and stale,
pathway to lost dreams express rail.

Cacophony slideshow playing in my mind,
as I slide into my seat to speed along.
A thousand what-if's circle to choose;
though now no regrets and nothing left to lose.

Finally my stop time to depart,
the repository of a million unseen dreams.
Doors drag open creaking as they go
gazing upon shelves stacked packed high and low.

Some like boxes shiny sparkling new,
others hanging darkly; skeletons waiting to pounce.
So many choices of where to start,
eternity to shuffle through the trappings of my hidden heart.

All the forks along my road,
ready to explore a life's worth of could have been's!
Oh the glee, to see my dreams and greatest glory,
sifting through my un-lived repository!

I wish I weren't me

I wish I weren't me!

---------------------------

I sometimes wish that I weren't me!

I were who I've always wanted to be!

A loving angel of the seventh heaven!

Chosen from seraphs of all the seven!

For my devotion to all the living souls!

In their suffering, who softly consoles!

Reaches instantly to whoever is in pain!

To give tender loving care most humane!

To look after dotingly for an ailing child!

To treat gently even the ones gone wild!

Even if I didn't have the powers to cure!

I could make sickness easier to endure!

Wherever I went, I took moments of joy!

With a soothing caress, or a magical toy!

My aura made grieving souls get a smile!

To keep it forever, not just to last a while!

I could enable infirm to independently live!

Instead of taking help, become able to give!

Not just I could heal bodies, also the minds!

Turn the impaired into a genius of a rare find!

In that quest I've worn a healer's white coat!

To do my little part though it's nothing of note!

I know I can never be who I've wanted to be!

But I can keep trying to become a better me!

- Seductive Melody - As Captures Me -


   Icy water flowing
   from the mountain rivers
   Heard a song of the wind
   A song that touches
   Thaw the snow from the past year
   Will get the sun to glow
   Is there angels sang

   My attention drew me close
   The wind and cold - my senses are open
   The melody is grabbing it catches me
   Just standing there and looking up at the sky
   The joy and awareness - enjoy the moment
   Let go of the breath
   The wind song or angels song
   It brings peace to my inner

   Alone with the mighty mountain
   The feeling being free - a freedom without links
   Life is all about crossing boundaries
   Feel the blood freezing as mountain water in your veins
   In joy and humility
   Song of the wind - listen
   Dance with life and angels

Midnight Lullaby

I wrapped all my tears, to see you smile.
you are the best, always by my side.
I tell you my feelings will get you crying,
you must think I’m out of my mind.

You don’t know, what I know,
all the angels let me go.

We were born to teethe and die,
you will grow to be so fine.
Fall in love, feel your softer side,
Remember me when life is kind.

When you go, let me know,
don’t walk away like the world and go.

Life is rough and the world unkind,
fight them down and you will be fine.
The truth of live is a brutal sight,
make no mistakes, you can learn from mine.

You have a strong heart, you are unique
I treasure times when you smile at me.

Live the life, I could not find,
be there for me, when I say goodbye.

ANGELS

I belived angels only exists in heaven,
but that is not true, just look around you.
They are everywhere....
 
Big and small, high and low, young and old, light and dark, all of them with their different form. 

Light wings, dark wings, worn wings, broken wings,
shaggy wings, colourful wings, trembling wings, bright wings,
mat wings, playful wings, busy wings, self-absorbed wings.

Happy eyes, kind eyes, evil eyes, tired eyes, sore eyes, eyes that have experienced a lot,
colourful eyes, frighten eyes, bright eyes, old eyes, busy eyes and greedy eyes....

There is an angel in us all, we just have different baggage with us....

Love is a wonder shared by one another it's the only reason I'm not six feet under Love in which I believe in a will to sustain I give back to life, now in dormant states of pain The power of Love may not alone be enough locked inside my dreams escape only from above higher than any human being has ever gone before I must have evolved rise above hate, great once more My Father taught me wisdom I am imprisoned no longer now an beast not of burden I am no lion, I am stronger on my shoulder sits twin dragons long awaiting the day evil forces come forth to take what Love is left, away A Hero of Love light are what the world needs angels, not demons exist where ever you believe follow your heart's direction and you shall achieve objects of affection rid of materialistic greed My bright energy has awakened to a fire never consuming the source as the flames just grow higher that is the desire of a product we call Love Fear, the counterpart what I was once made of I am slowly learning how to win when my peace is harder to sharpen so I have given my pen leave the sword has its uses I must say I believe to vanquish the evil in the minds too diseased to serve any purpose except their own selfish ones tomorrow a new day in the clarity of the sun where we two are now one and one done now does bring about a great change lit by the righteousness of Love.

You Are Everything

O friend, I'm all yours, teach me to love,
I've left the world and come, teach me love,
When my companion cares for me,
Why should I care for the world?
The world puts bans on me,
I don't belong to this world,
You in the morning, you in the evening,
You’re the kin; you only are the friend,
Every time every minute of the day,
You’re the kin; you only are the friend,
On the heart's slate I write,
Love, Love…
What does the world know my heart feels?
Love for whom,
Beloved, hug me and ask my well being,
What do I care about the world?
You're my victory; the world is my loss,
I don't belong to this world,
I have to become love and write letters
With eyes, have to write,
The way you look, I have to look like that,
Have to look like that,
The cupbearer of passions gives me lesson,
What do I care about the world?
You're with me, (my) world is with me,
I don't belong to this world…

Return Of Your King

Reflections of imperfections have shown me a way that I can move mountains through my power of faith even though I can't see him I know he is real through the power of prayer and a Love that I feel It's growing inside me like a flower in bloom shall I reveal my powers or is it too soon I am reading the signs through my darkness I find a reason for belief in the light of mankind that I know shall overcome the greatest of odds the Love I seek amazes me especially through the flaws because now I am inspired through the hero's that bring my throne through the darkness on which I return on as your King.

Sweet child of mine

The stars they used to bring tears to my eyes
Dark skies, I cried as I prayed for daylight
You were my fragment of pain
I became swallowed in memorys of darkness
That used to come and go so haunting, the loss of you
Still is killing me, for you were gone so suddenly..

My first child
My first love
Now all I have left
Are the stars above
Not to mention
The glow of the moon
That always reminds me
That you were taken too soon
Tears fall down my cheeks
When your name is spoken, that's when 
These demons become awoken
The heartbreak
The despair
Losing your child
Is too much to bear
Sleepless nights
Dreams full of terror
Seeing the pain in your eyes
Everytime you look in the mirror

I can look at the stars now
With hope, instead of pain
You my child, did not die in vain
You will live through me, glow bright star
Glow.. Glow for me
And for all of 
The mommys to see
Be my guidance, keep me from the ledge
To you child, this I pledge:

I see your glow and I can now smile
Though I might shed a tear every once and a while
Just because, I'm missing you
But I promise I will pull through

Thank you spirits
Thank you stars
For welcoming my child
With open arms
Keep him safe
Give him love
And let him know I am with him
Everytime I look above..

I'm Not Angry

I'm not angry because we broke up,
I'm sad because I can't let you go..
I'm not angry at you for not loving me,..
I'm angry with me for still loving you..
I'm not angry that I lost you,..
I'm sad because I once had you..
I'm not angry that I can't have you,
I'm sad because I know what I'm missing..
I'm not angry that you've moved on,
I'm sad because I can't..
I'm not angry that you won't come back,
I'm sad because I keep hoping you will..
I'm not angry because I hate you and don't want to,..
I'm sad because I miss you and I love you...??

O' great beast.      (you and me)
I borrow your strength, you
use my mind
WE together are a force....
Dynamically sublime!

Upon your great haunches WE ( I )
can conquer the world-
Upon my shoulders you (+ I)

Mania draws WE (us) to race
the coming dawn  in rivalry-
Not even Ra in his golden chariot can 
triumph over us- WE ARE FUSED ALCHEMY

WE two united are a greater
power than any foe-
WE just laugh and kick all
losers to Hades below.

as if your power -alone-
Were not enough...
My mount (and I) , her ethereal
beauty makes celestial bodies

Angel dust

Angel dust, shower upon my head, so peace and harmony, may enter my soul
Releasing the thunder my dreams seem to scream, even while I see
For the beauty in your crystals, shine a magical dust, upon my heart
Taking devil dust, and dusting it away, so my lungs can breathe

Angel dust, if your list is long or your line has no ending
I wouldn't mind taking Aurora Borealis or a little Star dust
As, longest I'm on your list or at the end of the line
I promise to be patient, while touched by an , Angel
An Angel like you

Angel dust, shower upon my head, so peace and harmony may enter my soul
For the blessing you give, I will treasure each day, for you are my , Angel mist
Bad spirits they run, demons out the door, when they know your near
Angel dust, please don't disappear, for I will always keep you near

Armageddon for Liars

Chalithra looks down upon Earth’s ills poverty, homelessness, starvation, war she sees Earthlings as half spirit and half beast sprawling her mighty wings, she draws her sword one stroke of her blade cuts the planet in two truthful souls on one part, liars on the next Chalithra’s long platinum hair shields her tears her human side wants liars to soar hopelessly through space but the angel in her knows that Judgment Day will come she raises her armored chest to the heavens then bows down upon her knees offering prayers for peace and harmony her petitions make their way to the Master’s ear she watches as Earth becomes whole once more and she knows how she will spend her days one-by-one she battles those who spread falsehood knowing only the Master can bring peace, prosperity but determined to save those who tell only truth
*Written for Tracie’s “Welcome to the World of Fantasy” contest Chalithra is half human and half angel and she fights for truth

Falling In Like

I love it when you hold me close, and always want to play.
How in the morning you message me; on every single day.
When you call me every night, before I close my eyes-
Or always tell the truth; never any lies. 

When I get to see your passion with every story that you tell,
How even when you’re angry, those feelings never dwell. 
I love that you protect me, from everything around;
That even when I’m lost, I know that I’ll get found. 

I love that whenever you start to drive, you make me kiss your cheek.
How my stomach gets butterflies with each sweet word you speak.
That you cuddle me for a moment and then turn on your side,
That all of your accomplishments and family give you pride. 

I love that you support every decision that I make,
That even if you’re embarrassed of things- you’ve never acted fake.
How you always want me to be happy, no matter how I feel.
That even when we make things up- it’s never been more real. 

How you always make these plans, that often tend to change;
When you smile at my senseless jokes, and when I’m acting strange.
That you always say I’m pretty, even when I don’t think that it’s true-
How you think that I’d want anyone else; when all I want is you.

An Ode to LIFE Part 1

An Ode To LIFE


As I lay my head down and start to fall asleep I see myself being carried off to a place and time the place of our Lords birth in Bethlehem of Judea

As in the Bible tells the story of His life and how he lived and died in that human seance and rose on the day He told of

I do not remember being here but I remember the story I was taught so many years ago

As I walk through the streets of Bethlehem I see each scene  and hear  every word as I am learning the story they telling is true

The writer writes of a jealous King  and his way of dealing with his people and of Mary and Joseph who came to Bethlehem to have a child

The story tells of the three wise men  who saw a star in the north and heard of a child  who was born to be the King of the Jews  and come to see and bring Him gifts 

An  angel from the Heavens above came to Mary and Joseph in a dream and told them they had to leave Bethlehem or King Herod would have their son killed 

So they left Bethlehem and went to Egypt and there they lived until King Herod no longer ruled

As I follow along in my dream I see each scene  and hear  every word as I am puzzled by the fact I understand each

I don’t understand why I’m going through this time but I know I must continue on this journey 

As I am pulling through a time where I reach the place of Jesus’ in  Nazareth of Galilee

As I watched Him grow and work in His father's shop I could see the thing in Him that were with me

As I walk along the streets and look around I hear the people talk of a child that speaks of wondrous love that’s all forgiving and of a Father in Heaven that’s loving and true.

My Angel Spirit Bird Neelkanth

My Angel Spirit Bird Neelkanth                    Dedicated to Deborah Guzzi

I dreamed one day, 
I was climbing a hill,
Away, far away in the Himalayan mountain 
But I was only a beginner, of climbing a snow peak
I wanted to climb to see the world, 
To feel the Sunshine
And the beauty of the glacier

Perhaps my fascination for climbing the hills, 
Was traced by my mind, who knew me more than me
It thought to fulfill my long cherished desire,
If not in actual, at least in my dream

I wanted to feel, how splendid it is
To see the world 
From a snow covered peak  
To get a bird eye view of the world
To learn more about the earth, humans and nature

In moments of those total silence and aloofness,
I found the blue wing bird, like an Angel spirit for me
My beautiful blue bird Neelkanth,*
Was my only friend and inspiration,
To complete the mission 

I was climbing the snow covered hill
Like a Mountaineering trainee,
My tools were few, but my aim was true
My only companion, in the journey of my adventures,
Was my blue wings bird 
I know from my childhood days, as my ‘Neelkanth’*

I found my blue wings bird, hovering always near me,
Like an Angel spirit, to save me from falling,
Its beauty lies, not only in its blue wing,
But the poison it stored in its purple throat ring, 
To save the world from the effects of poison

I was climbing the hill,  
And my favorite Blue wing bird, 
Was accompanying me, in those difficult moments, 
Like a true well wisher and a true companion

At one place I found that,
The snow rocks were difficult and steep
I tried a short cut, to somehow reach the top,
And then came my Angel spirit,
From somewhere suddenly, 
Giving indication to stop immediately 

I decided to go, as the spirit was indicating, 
I changed my course, as shown by the Angel spirit
Next moment I heard a sliding of the snow rock, 
The rock which I was trying to climb,
Were falling and were slipping deep in the glacier

My eyes became tearful, when I saw my Angel spirit
It had saved my life,
From being buried in the snow glacier,
For ever and for ever

After seeing my expressions of love and gratitude, 
The bird flew away from there
Leaving me inspired for many more coming moments,
To start climbing the hills again and again

Next moment I was climbing,
The hills with more vaguer, as usual
My angel bird had given me enough
To keep trying
Till I reach my goal
Or feel the Sunshine

My Inner Breath Part:2

Fight for your country but we're all brother in soul
Why are we so ignorant of the situation
Why is there so much hatred between our nations
Why are we fighting for the wars
There has only been massive destruction in the course
They say fight against but when will it stop
We are just playing a game that's killing at the top
How i wish for no more discrimination only charisma
The hope for no more judging and no more racism
One united world is what we'd call it in those days
Not knowing the resemblance or the difference in those plays
Trying to make a change for a better place
I'm going to evolve into a change that rearrange
I'ma be a leader not a follower in my story
i"m not afraid to race in my glory
Watch me grow in these multitudes 
With a desire to overcome in positive attitudes
Not just another one in the crowd
Wanting me, myself and i to be proud
Not if people know how I'm feeling
Or if my notes are any much revealing
I want to be listened to and memorized along history
My melodies will be more than the different like Elvis Presley

More than the unique but not lie the usual
Not afraid of being who I am I'm not unusual
Day by day trying to figure out what God plans for me
everyday Im looking for my destiny
Knowing none of this to you might make any sense
But lets worry about the now not the past tense
now there's a time for every season
Knowing everything happens for a single reason
Knowing how it feels to be alone in a world of many
But i have Jesus and I'm sure that's plenty
Cause and effect being human is a result of virtues and defects
There's a time to live and a time to die
There's a time to live and a time to cry
Wanting to do something here and about
Exhaling a shout
Wanting to cry out that for sure
Making a single wish on a million shooting stars
Believing I'm locked up but not behind bars
Locked inside a maximum security called inner self
Going through something I've never delft
Why is this happening to me
Reasons are complicated to see
Or to believe in such disasters
Sometimes i wish i could just die faster

A topic which seems long way off is really not that far
My soul locked inside a body jar
Sometimes having those dreams that make you doubt and intervene
It changes your perspectives with a rotation of electives
A mentality in a state of maturity
Not close to being a fallen angel with any much purity

Demon In My Closet

There is a demon in my closet and it is safe to say
 I have kept him there safely, each and every day
 Asking about his words, I thought I heard him pray
 He laughed openly stateing he was always hearing me play
 I followed, I listened I leaned over to his ways
 
It turns out he's here over an angel and a wish of keeping me gay
 Saintan is forever listening to what becomes my fate
 The doors still closed as softly as that horrid divorced decay
 But he was not wearing my brand, a mark of forever may it stand
 He had choose to turn the other cheek, to find a higher point of understanding
 
Something more suitable than just a standard branding
 A mark of a book, a devils open handing
 A demon to help me through troubles and fears
 A someone there when all I have left is openly flowing tears
 He jesters, he peers, he jokes, he steers
 But I think my favorite time is where leers

Gone in Thirteen Years

When she was but a tot, 
A chubby little bundle of dread and joy, 
I’d asked God to watch over her, 
and her angel came and sat down with mine; 
 I knew he was there, 
I could feel him.

Now with pomposity and flaunting, 
her angel is vanished, 
and mine seems to leave at thirteen.
She’s here but my baby is gone, 
and I asked heaven to bring her back.
I’d do anything to be with my angel again.

Flesh is for the worms,
 but a cultured mind creates delightful recollections, perpetual.
Today, the whole world nurtures my child, 
and the house has more volume; it echoes our voices.  
If she doesn’t listen to God’s voice through mine 
She’ll be a feast for all of society.

Simone

Life is filled with God’s beauty
The everyday beauty which surrounds us
And the pure beauties in a friend like you

The warmth in your smile
The compassion in your eyes
The invisible wings on your back

God’s angels surround us
An angel for each one of us
Invisible only to our lack of faith

The purity of God’s character is portrayed through friendship
Painting a masterpiece of angels
Composing a symphony of love

Every life is a portrait of God Himself
But those with wings are a constant echo of His love
Those like you

You reached out to me
Touched my heart and took my hand
Entwining our lives forever

The path through life is one I could never walk without you
You have touched my life in so many ways
My angel and best friend

The bond created is indescribable
Your meaning to me is unexplainable
But without you I would be nothing

As life fades to dust
Forever in my heart you shall remain
Our unbreakable friendship everlasting
Trough our words and memories
We will dance hand in hand for all eternity

_

This is an extremely special poem for someone who means the world to me. Simone 
Jenneke, it is a blessing to have you in my life. I could never have asked for a better friend. 
You give my life meaning and hope. Thank you for who you are and for what you have done 
for me. Without you, life would not be worth living. I love you more than you could ever 
know. 

Tons of love,
Amy, xxx

I look for the Buck?
I'm looking for the Starry Eyes?
Instead I'm blinded by Free Wi-Fi.
Zombies in the gloom,
Faces lit with Cell phones, iPads, 
And Laptops!

My Name, they inscribed 
On my paper cup.
The ultimate Accolade.

A Little Angel

A little angel came to Earth one day. but he didn't come here to stay. Three years was his time limit. His parents did not know it then, but God for him, had a plan. The day he was born, to everyone he brought joy. His parents loved him from the start. Manuel Zachary was his name. He grew up pretty quick. While he was here, he spread smiles, love and star dust everywhere. His family loved him very much. He was their little Angel from above. Three years he was here to spread his love and joy. One day he heard a call. It was God calling him home. His parents couldn't understand - why with them - he couldn't stay. Now he is back where he belongs and from there he watches over them. Every now and than he gives them a sign. He spreads some star dust, to let them know that he is still around... 08/14/2012 Written by Lucilla M. Carrillo Comments: This did happened.

In The Beginning

Taunting Winter's became the seasons in life, for most of us
Various their storms have proudly brewed; running 
As fast as we can within tiny circles, we have thus so ran
Innocent precious babies; oftentimes, these little eyes
Flowing with salty tears; if in fact but a metaphor could bleed ?
It's myriad of somber moments; about as around our heart's 
Spiraling these rains; drenched aneath such pain; they say 
That two wrongs never make a right; fires which beget flames
Burning swords still melting amid, timeless hands...
Battle cries, calling unto shadows bent; falling upon stained knees.

Missing An Angel

I’m missing  so much one of my angels
who constantly guided me since birth
he used to talk to me in a long distance
his lovely voice was a real spirit booster

all the other angels have called me up
bringing me all  their wishes and love
but the other angel I’m missing now
I want even the silhouette of his voice

dear angel of mine, please  hear me cry
will you appear in my dreams tonight
I just want to tell you how I am
like I did with the rest of whom you love

I really miss to tell you a story
whenever  I am happy and lonely
and all the love and joys  around me
trying  all to keep my spirit healthy

but, there’s one thing I want to tell
please continue looking after me
keeping me in your ardent  prayer
and ask God to remove the bitter pill

I want to tell you that  I’m still fine
as long as I am still kicking and alive
All I need is a constant fortitude
In this temporary world  I don’t own

I’m missing you so much my angel
speak in a  dream of your sweet  girl
greet and make a loving wish for her
may she has a longer life in this world

The Magik Of Love

Reflections in the mirror were getting scary I could not carry the weight of my pain it almost took my life to learn to love again for I have made a friend somewhere along my long lost way I hope that I helped him just a fraction of how he helped me maybe that single thought is what finally gave me my peace enough to release so much stolen energy Now I am not afraid to walk where the streets are hot for I thrive in Hell's kitchen where the devil stirs my pot for I now have him quiet tame I sacrificed my dragons at the alter of my name and now you are my slaves any time I need I'll call upon my superhero's to come and rescue me like my Saint Toni who swept me off that bridge and showed my how a death can be the greatest reason to live for she was the seed to grow my Eden then a man from a foreign land gave me something in myself to believe in the magik of Love.

THE ANGEL OF INNOCENCE

Kneeling before his holy throne, blessed is she this angel of innocence,
In clarity’s eyes of divine faith, the child of God smiles with devotions
Purity.
With the fullest of hearts love, she sings as soft as the morning dove,
Praising the lords name on the heights divide, amongst the stars,
And light of the first mornings rays, which touch the vast
Everlasting skies of heaven.
Perfections wings to flight, she soars lifted upon spiritual currents
Of prayer and merciful grace.
Extended white feathers of ivory silk are softly kissed by,
 The heavenly fathers spirit, for she is child of light itself
Warmed beneath the glow of the divine shinning of God.
Himself.
Spiritualism gift lives within this angel of mercy, whom
Stands on the righteous side of the Almighty’s right hand,
A blessings promise of the dawning soon to come, of an age
Of enlightenment for mankind.
Oh greatest beauty is glory’s kindred, setting free the
Miracle from the vaults of heaven, a white dove of peace,
Shinning amongst the blackened night vial, exposing the
Diamond stars of the universe, which blinks in wonders 
Amazement at the Lords treasured angel of innocence.
Sing does the Lords heavenly chorus in melodies
Harmony unto the graceful figure of humility for
She is innocence personification of perfection gift
Of love from the power on the most high.
Praising his name, with both hands locked together in
Prayer and faith beyond mortal’s comprehension.
In the light aglow of the everlasting, she does soar,
Waiting for the beckoning voice that calls to her
Inner soul, come my dearest child of innocence
It is time for you to come home, and be embraced
Beneath my wings of divine grace, until the world
Of man is ready for thee.
At the night so fades this angel of the mericiful heeds
The Lords calling, and rests until the eve of her 
Great awakening, then shall mankind open their blind
Eyes at last to behold and know the Lord’s love,
As the angel of innocence soars once more
Amongst the divine stars unto freedom’s passage.
Smiling in faith’s ultimate state of grace.

The Angel Cries At Night

'The Angel Cries At Night''


I  heard an angel speak last night and he said ''write''
and bring enlightenment to  this dark place,
the hollowness that prevails
breaks my silence
I writhe in agony
to see the despicable dead 
restless and infuriated
daunted by their  formidable grave
they long for salvation...
My stagnated beauty is futile...
Alas ! I cannot restore their lives..
the dead leaves pay their homage
where the ALIVE one fails to visit...

burn your brand upon my heart
wrap me in your blazing wings
toss my embers into the sky
catch me when i fall
flaming with your love

you my angel of the sun
make me yours with the
voice of heaven’s choir
shine you golden eyes
upon my melting heart
like a volcano you flow 
lava through my veins

you my angel of the sun
the radiance in me
a flame that grows with
every bright smile
the heat of my nights
and light of my days
wrap you aura around me
getting lost in your paradise

lost in the moment
the warmth of your rays

Cheers Love

cheers to us and the many places we have been
here is to us the lions relaxing in their dens
three cheers for the memories our lives will never be the same
one thing to remember we have only ourselves to blame
as we toasted a small want filtered out through my face
I again didn't surface untill that want became fate
possabilities begain to surface as my concious ran vain
I once again wanted to reclaim you for my mate
my emotions hurtfully started a small pain in my side
I felt my thoughts were thrashed about openly 
caught outside of my mind, played upon surgicaly
so they matched the pain in my side, the ones I was trying to hide
so heres a toast to approaching this openly getting caught in the tide
I feel so mischievious again wanting to be your bride

A Feeling That I Knew Too Well

A feeling that I knew too well;
With every word you spoke I fell-
Falling deeper into the bliss;
Longing for your every kiss.

Without you here my heart grows fonder;
Around the park I start to wander-
And think about how you make me feel-
The longing starting to become surreal.

Giving meaning to my life,
You lift me up from pain and strife.
I thought it was a feeling that I knew-
But with your guidance the passion grew.

Spiraling up with every touch-
Never wanting to leave your clutch. 
Waiting for your familiar glance-
Missing you with every chance.

Guardians of Forever

They guard lost gardens
Criss-cross forgotten rivers of solitude
All future seasons they rotate
Absolving rage with mute and gentle grace
Sweet angels
Blind to reason they spark rainbows
random, silent arcs that transform space.

They are constant, strange, eternal,
the very breath, and brain of God.

The Dream

Hands held high like a bed of roses.
Red all around like a sea of blood.
You scream for me with shock in pain.
The sound that froze me and made me stare.
I turn my face to see you in a white dress,
like a lonely angel in the demons world.
Swiftly I come and stand by your side,
fearing the sight behind my eyes.

I carry you with my burned rusted hands
but the pain is little compared to the love that I have,
running from the shadows, we meet the naked red hands.
The hands that try to pull us to the shadows
but I am strong and shall not wither.
I clasp the angel of my broken soul between my hands,
the white twilight of the lost space of my heart.
I will fight for you and never back down.

I stumble to my knees and hit the shredded knives,
that bloodied the white dress of my only love,
but scream I do not for I am the hero of the hazel eyes.
The eyes that stare at me with shock and fear.
The devil within me struck out and hit life,
making me scream with my eyes filled with black
and all was silent.

A door appears in front of a mystic light and I
open it with my bleeding knee.
Blinded I am and my eyes burn like fire.
I was laying with her by my side.
Her scent killed the numbness that filled my mind

Sometimes

Sometimes sometimes in my heart I get these thoughts,
Sometimes sometimes in my heart I get these thoughts,
That you’ve been made only for me,
That you’ve been made only for me,
Before this u were among the stars somewhere,
Before this u were among the stars somewhere,
You’ve been called down to earth only for me,
You’ve been called down to earth only for me,
Sometimes sometimes in my heart I get these thoughts,
That these arms, these shoulders are my treasures,
That these arms, these shoulders are my treasures,
This shadow of your thick beautiful hair is only for me,
These lips and your arms r my treasures,
These lips and your arms r my treasures,
Sometimes sometimes in my heart I get these thoughts,
That on the roads the music of the shahanayi is played,
That on the roads the music of the shahanayi is played,
It’s our first night and I’m lifting the veil off your face,
It’s our first night and I’m lifting the veil off your face,
You’re shrinking with shyness in my arms,
You’re shrinking with shyness in my arms,
Sometimes sometimes in my heart I get these thoughts,
Like you’re going to love me just like this all your life,
That you’re eyes shall lift up and have the same look all your life,
I know u r a stranger but the same way,
I know u r a stranger but the same way,
Sometimes sometimes in my heart I get these thoughts,
Sometimes sometimes in my heart i get these thoughts….

Drunk in the City of Angels

Drunk in the lost city,
lost in the vase beauty of the angels
drunk, smoking on park benches.

Freaks, trannys, whores and pimps,
looking at me;
a one of a kind.

No one has ever seen me on the streets of L.A.,
beacause I am a one of a kind,
a gentleman, a drunken buffoon.

I hurl myself at the bars,
and the whores look at me and smile,
and I wave them over, and they come.

40 bucks for a night a good fun,
a night of exotic pleasure,
in the heart of the sleeping angels.

Drunk walking,
two in the morning,
police stop me, sleeping on a park bench.

Warm always warm,
never cold,
the city that is lost.

A city known as the city of angels,
yet how many devils I have counted.
How much evil I have seen,
how much temptation rules in the gutters.

Walking drunk on madness,
in this dirty city,
as I look for a bar before last call.

I find one,
I go in,
order a beer.

I drink with pleasure
I start to write,
I light a cigarette and smoke.

A grey cloud forms around me,
"Last call for alcohol," the barkeep shouts.
I raise my hand, he comes over.

"What will yah have?" he asks,
"Another beer and my check."
On the house, free drinks, on the house.

After a night in the city of angels,
I find myself a cosy park bench,
and fall asleep, dreaming of the angels I had never seen.

An A plus Teacher

#teacher #education #children #mentor #caring #giving

An A+ teacher does their best to make a child smile
And they take the time to listen for a while
An A+ teacher does not worry when dealing with a class of over twenty
They simply take control, steering young minds to learn plenty

An A+ teacher is good at captivating young hearts
They are always dedicated to doing more than their part
An A+ teacher is a positive influence in a child's life
Always there to give direction and advice

An A+ teacher is one who puts in extra hours often unseen
They learn quickly to deal with things that cannot be foreseen
An A+ teacher fully dedicates their life to others
And every year they trade one group of students for another

An A+ teacher often stays up late with papers to grade
And then gets up early to go to a job for which they are underpaid
An A+ teacher encourages learning in young minds
And does their best at the job they are assigned

An A+ teacher gets no bonus for each child they encourage
And often have to pick themselves up when they are discouraged
I am so glad my child has an awesome teacher with a capital A
A big heartfelt thank you is all I know to say!!

Insert something cliche here, Please'

The crocodiles teeth,
They n'awed into me
And tore me up limb by limb,

But I am not dead, nor alive
I'm a vision, a spiritual surprise!

A woman who bleeds from the eyes
For justice, and not to be criticized! 

Do you understand that
even ghosts have to be remembered?
To be Recognised!

a bond so strong nothing can tare it apart
until death do us part

we meet once more
in a much better place
once again

VAMPIRES LOVE

In a city of light

where they go off  suddenly

then a hissing thunderous sounds

of creatures ravage the streets

pa pa pa... fear summons

the hearts of the inhabitants

like the doomsday

people seek their gods favor

they wail bitterly and anguishly

since there is just a moment

for them to depart

a world that is lifeless

they await the ancestors crown

which has slain them

from time immemorial

but this time the anticipated

turns into the unprecedented

their faces drop and crawls

their hearts fades and shrills

the end is certain who can tell

suddenly its a clash of titans

where the vampires mortality

is restored with the ancestors crown

who ever thought

it could have been possible

for a vampire to show love.

A Friend Like You

A final wish
One he regrets
For you must be careful
What you wish for.

Back into the lamp
Vanishing in blue mist
No matter how hard we wish
This genie isn't coming back.

A talented comedian
Who cracked jokes
Inspired those he met
Changed lives down the road.

An amazing actor
That rocked films
Made us jump for joy
Laugh at his cross-dress
When he became a nanny.

Brought joy and laughter
That brightened the world
Like a lightbulb in a dim room
Shining brighter than the rest.

He made us laugh
Made us cry
Never should 
Of said goodbye.

You shall be missed
Here on planet Earth
Yet your star shines bright
For the world at night.

Shine bright
Dear knight
Cherished friend
May you be at peace.

Never had we
Had a friend
Like you
To change lives
With your laughter.

The Maker Of Miracles

I am the maker of miracles a real spiritual man waltzing through shadows as they pull me back in I know I must escape them any way I can I know the way out like the back of my hand It's just me and the maker together, he and I I told you God is in me you just thought I was high talking with the Zeta's they tell me just why everything has an ending and the old me, must die I'm Calm as a bomb in the eyes of a storm they stare upon me as if I've been warned turn me inside out as a goodness is born I wear my battle scars so stars know I'm war torn When the gift of life is freed from inside the fire starts fading then the anger subsides like the great phoenix, I go back in time a miracle is born and now that I'm revived in my new life, I shine.

The Dark Knight On the Cliff

A young maiden fair and slender of great beauty and rose complexion
Was gathering wild flowers in a forest when an angel to her appeared
Gently she flew down and softly whispered in the virgin maiden’s ear
You are the chosen one and your destiny it is to save the Black Knight
High on a Cliff he stands alone in deep despair cursed by the Gods and fate
Only a true loving heart can save this mortal from all of hells damnation
Take this silver dagger, and child use it well, smite all evil and set him free
The angel then turned and disappeared as quickly as she had come 
A vision then came and the maiden was able to gaze upon the black Knight
A man of grand statue and true beauty with sad dark penetrating haunting eyes
The virgin maiden’s heart it stirred as desire and longing enveloped her soul
Her Knight was held captive by demons and bound by chains of steel and gold
They hissed and snarled as if their screams came from the depths of hell
She could hear the knight’s distressed silent cries and felt his despairing agony
on wings of angels she was lifted up past impenetrable talon rocks to his tortured side
As fallen angels held him back, demons screamed and flaming fire on her breathed
Hatred and loathing spewed out on her as huge black ravens pecked at her eyes
Brandishing the dagger she bravely challenged monsters, demons and ravens all
The monsters and demons then ripped at her flesh, their teeth drawing blood and skin
Brandishing the dagger she bravely challenged each fiend and evil spirit one by one
She fought with such overpowering strength she knew not she possessed
As one by one demon and monster fell unable to overcome her true abiding love
Then the black howling devils of the night appeared even then she had no fear
Swiping at her adversaries she stood her ground, and plunged the dagger deep
Unable to cause more agonizing torment they soon faded in the depth of night
As released tortured souls screamed out for salvation and for eternal peace 
As one by one her black knight’s captors were defeated by her love alone
Suddenly all screaming and hideous cries abated and peace then reigned 
She gazed up into his soft gentle smoldering eyes her wounds forgotten
As he wrapped her in his arms and blessed the gods and all above
All his great agony and fears dissipated as the stars softly blessed their love
And on the cliff he gently kissed his maiden fair as an angel’s choir sang
The moonlight bathed them in light, as united they became as one in Paradise.

A Miracle Angel

I love the sweet thought of your arms 
softly circling around 
the neck touching deep
Looking into your eyes jewels
shines inside this mind

You're the sunshine 
golden enchanting dewdrops
awakening with each new day 
Melting warmly milk and honey
together is so sweet to the tongue
 
So are the words of endearment
to the heart gently sings sweetly
melting beautiful warm honey 
drunken inside golden mead
 
kissing your beauty love 
when the coins fell into place 
One beholding joy 
happiness a jackpot treasure forever
will shine all over you always 

If only I could appear lost 
found within your dreams 
needing you my love 
Like the air one breathes 
gasping hot finding paradise 
with you who gave me wings to fly

Fallen Angel

You see her,
but don't know it.
She's lying on the floor,
scars on her feet, 
her knees,
her hands.
Her eyes plead for acceptance,
that you disregard her tattered wings.
Too weak to stand up,
too tired to breathe,
the fall from heaven to earth,
sank her soul to the depths of this world.

This fallen angel sees deep in your mind,
right through your eyes,
she knows what you think you see,
and wishes you were blind.
Her hands rise in shame,
covering her bruised face;
they show more scars and blood,
which she just can't seem to hide.

Fallen angel from above,
wanting just to find love,
she's searching for something more,
to accept her broken wings.
Watch for the fallen angel;
show her what she thinks she can't have.
Teach her that bruises, 
blood,
scars,
can be accepted unconditionally.

Love the fallen angel,
so she may become whole,
then one day this sweet angel,
might find her place in the heavens again.

Three days Saved

It's been nine years, I have counted the tears-
  they have made trails of guilt
  worried into my heart 
  then filled with loneliness and bitter despair
but by your grace I have been shown...

For the first time, in these nine years, I have not wept
  nor held a vigil to honor our grief
though the loss still burns, this time it is transformed

Peace from your love still reaches through death
  and through your eternal love I am reborn
  
 It is Good Friday. 
When God took your spirit home
  and left me dying to know,
  how to love him for his sacrifice
  when he asked me to give up you?
How do I heal this death and rise with you in his arms?

Through your love I was born, and in your arms I grew
 and it has been your love the kept me whole
 that taught me how to be reborn
    for even though your body has gone
    your words lost in the wind and breath no more
The essence of grace and strength you lived
- it grows still in your daughter soul

My being and existence came from your womb
  my heart and mind shaped by your enlightenment
I have lived a life you gave me and for once
   I live it in pride to honor your sacrifice
your words giving me the guidance I'd lost nine years ago.

Alas, I've come to know, that as you died
  and went home with our Lord, you saved me from my death
not in your dying, my grief and love can attest,
    but in your living strength and loving example
       you showed me how to live a life
             open to our Father's gift

We knew it would not wait, but the parting was too fast.
I sat in thought three days before your sleep and asked,
"In three days time my savior died, I wonder hence
   what of my soul will rise with his?"

And now sitting Easter morning, 
  holding my sons candy-filled basket,
I realized Three days passed.

  He took you home Friday morn, but left me love,
that eternal love that never dies
whose comfort is unending

I honor your love by giving it to my children
         and Easter morning I felt your hug, your kiss, and knew 
                                 you have never left me
.
Though God took you home Mom
I know you have never left me
for as our Savior died and rose
you too still live in my heart, 
showing me proof our Father's blessings

    because you, my love, are my soul and all ready there
there fore I am strong enough to give this pain up 
       to honor his sacrifice and transcend,
           to be humbled by the grace and mercy
          that could forgive such lost lambs as I

My Time Has Come

My Time Has Come

My time is over here in this body
I am being called home as my work is done here
I hear my Lords voice calling me home
Although I know I will miss this old world 
With all that I have seen and done
All the People I have met and talked to
My body can go on no more for it has reached it’s time

Broken Heart

Everyday I am happy to be
in the presence of my angel,
he is my one true source
of comfort.
The sun always seems to shine
regardless of rain clouds drifting
across the azure sky.
His touch sends lust coursing through
my veins making my heart beat faster.
The frequent devotion transformed into
blood-red roses that he bestows upon
me with his sparkling smile.
Sadly this was short-lived for my
happiness turned into pain,
tears fell like raindrops down my
soft velvet skin.
My inner screams went unheard,
no-one seemed to notice my cries
for empathy or relief from this
dark and lonely place.
My heart has been broken into
a thousand pieces so small that
they could pass through the eye
of a needle.
My angel has fallen, jealousy
roamed within his heart making
his baby blue eyes turn green
with envy.
My heart feels lost in this
ocean of lost hope and trust;
happiness and joy do not exist
in this hellish bubble of pain
and agony.
My heart has been broken and
the voice of my angel no-longer
enters my mind for he has now
fallen leaving nothing but
a betrayed heart in his wake.

Dream Dreams And Dreamers

Sharing thoughts as dreams, while sitting amid the cafe
Watching sailboats sailing about the bay; set silvers stage...
Considering a mundanes day; truth be it for most here; this 
Valley of dust recycling redundants disarray; The Golden Gate
Rising from the blue waters and her radio's, regurgitating these
Prickling thorns presenting their pangs; outbreaks breaking news
Seven heart's burned at the stake today; a baby, floating in a cage ?
London bridge be falling down; Hitler just blew out his brains; invitro.

Defied Kisses

Blasting sounds of tears
Fears are doomed to be passing
Mountain of affection provoke fake emotions
Raining thoughts of tress grow broken branches of feelings
Tribulations and trials in court cases
When Species promise you kisses
From the roots of hatred
Growing fears of affection
It’s a sip of a pois0ners kiss
My words avenge my time of death
It’s a kiss from the pois0ners snake
Never mind my brains
I am the prisoner of hate
You owe me a healthy kiss

THE BLACK TENTH

That day is just another day,
Boarding buses driving car,
Some smile or sleep at hay,
Others chatting while driving far.

Thru and flow those journey,
One's mind will never across,
Death angel is on the hurry,
Waiting right spot for a man's loss.

Impact of dark angel wings,
Thrown and messed every stream,
All those agony brings,
Smash out those living dreams.

15 lives been told,
15 souls turned cold,
15 and 15 themselves,
Will never erased from shelves.

Family of 15 cried,
Shocked till tears dried,
The rest are in blurry side,
Come to known they are still alive.

That black tenth,
15 lost souls never reached home,
That black tenth,
Malaysia's most sour dome.

That black tenth,
Will forever remembered...


R.I.P for those 15 souls

Her Favourite Pink Teddy

Having decided that she was no less then this, a deceiving
Wicked witch so I happily hurried along her belongings ¿
Exiting stage left throwing them all into the garbage bin 
Except for her heart's favourite pink teddy while listening 
Unto Bruce Springstein's anthem song, Born In The USA..
Quite aware of these metaphors scattered about a rent 
Canvas his bluebird complaining to a solitary crow gazing
Peering into the green grass hidden; trying to make it's way 
Imagining as her Statue of Liberty and thinking that Diane
Beholds their gray grim reapers, wearing righteous masks ?
Children weeping mothers bewildered a man with his sickle
Lifted high proclaiming these balancing scales holy castles...
Chasing the we understand given to us; serving your demons.

Show me who you are and i shall paint out broken columns on the valleys of her back as if such figure is un-common
i have found no beauty bending as the vines that are her hair and the frailty of man upon her back is what she bares
bleed her body for the harvest let them feast upon her soul for the nurishment of mother is leaps beyond so bold
she is like the flower growing in the deepest of dark forests,amongst the ivy and hemlock but her skin is much too porous
to concern herself with games that tantalize the men, as they marry on crusade it is her children that she tends
sheath your swords with her ambition and tip your arrows with her will, craft your armour from her strength and in the battle you will kill
come now children from the pasture and lay each upon her side, suckle gently at your mother although theirs pain she does not hide
though the water leaks from rooftops her leaves are thick and block the rain, as the water level rises cling to her branches with no shame
she is the stone upon the beach, once a mountain pound and breached
yet still her disposition clear to love her children that are near

Sweet Children, Sleep

To the Newtown Children

A poet cries with broken heart

Look thine hearts be washen clean with death,
God knows how hastily can be
By an unfitting goodly young man
Become just another evil’s killer.
Take thou no mean of life
That so tenderly and small
Arranged now along that cold room
Where a hundred of parents
Like you and I look on poor children that thou think:
One day they shall be a doctor or a thinker like us.
To understand really why the hungry death
Has to do for their final journey in front of this sickness?

O, children! American children! My children!
I warn thee in all my heart and soul
That could not happen so earlier on life
And where thou cast the peace and saint in the kindness of grace
Take care of them from danger, thou take for a leaf
And makes my heart bleeding every one like us become angry
How in this heavenly nation this massive fate could occur?

Hold me fast in thine embrace God,
Where my despair cannot be silenced,
Let you and me and everyone else to knee and cross
Our fingers against our chest and pray for them,
Give them, Lord, thy blessing give,
Pray for them and mother as well,
And I shall finish this poem with trembled
Fingers and tears cascading over this bloody
Sheet as an awaken wind has just blown it from me.

Royal Highness

Love to dance with your mind 
then as the curtains raise open 
I give to you batting lids 
this singing note raising tunes 
in the highest places 

Land of forever young 
so wild and carefree 
where the butterflies they float in vision 
in a galaxy one million miles away 
your in my soul's quarters 

Offering this sacrifice 
silently blowing a gentle hum 
on sugar coated echoes 
inside angel whispers 
silver coating clouds within thoughts 
lined with you beautiful 

In the shadows one savors your light 
seagulls cries mixing with great ocean waves 
hauntingly calls on the magic inside lapping 
treading onto deep sands 
enchanting every single thought 
Rippling reflections of a warm sun 
gentle with her rays dancing on air 

Pushing out this boat 
raising destiny's sails 
Forever shining regal 
glows warm always on the golden sands 
inside paradise one dream 
crowning you the hearts champion

Sea Angels

I walk the ocean sands
and wade among the waves.
I see an angel in motion
dancing on the foam.

This angel swirls and dips

Ballerinas in mid air
Or wings of glossy jell.

Fragile form yet vile
Like love you've had awhile.
Beautiful, yet stings

Light To Dark

You think you’ve gone just far enough,

I could smile knowing you’ve gone far enough that you can’t go back again

You think you were careful but,

I’ve caught a glimpse of your true, wretched form

You think you can find a way into my good graces

I’ve seen what you are, monsters with a friendly costume

You can’t deceive me anymore and, I don’t consort with serpents

You think I’m a game to be played but, trust me, you could never win

Don’t underestimate me

You think I’m a joke but, trust me you won’t be laughing

You think I’m just talking myself up but, trust me, you’re the ones going down

My eyes took too long to adjust

Better late than never

It may take a monster to know one but, I promise my teeth are sharper than yours

My first reaction to the hideous revelation that was your form was to weep

Fall to my knees, maybe even wretch my heart from my chest and onto the carpet

Then I thought about the mess it would make

I decided the only blood that will spill, will be your own

I was not weak, but I had a weakness

A heart of soft gold stitched to my sleeve with care

No longer

Now my heart is a stone so heavy

I could kill at least two birds at once 

Being the nice guy is a thing of the past 

Thanks for freeing me of that softness

You thought I was all sunshine and delicate things

When really I had just been swallowing razor blades

Now that sun is setting and I hope you see it was you who were wrong

Can you feel my darkness coming, because it’s eager to hold you

If you thought I was the one who would just stand still or turn to run

Your gonna be the one with tired feet

I’m not sad anymore

Just sick with the plague of your lies

Contagious, and I’m looking for someone to kiss

Even angels can make themselves wicked

When we do, we take no prisoners

Still think I’m a game

This one is just beginning

Naughty Girls

Chaste became but waste, unto her heart
While she ran away ? Parterres pleasures..
Her theatre in both lust as love; a passion
Spellbound beauty; their veil's her desires.

Of Angels and Their Folded Wings

The angels, with their folded wings
walk on silent ground

They know not whether
to weep, 
or wield their sighing harps.

It seems like hearts are stones, 
or jewels would they be?

Precious gems, maybe.

Of different hues, 
with scattered light.

Encrusted, unpolished
by time and tears,
and by things spoken 
and not...

The angels, moving forward--
with their timid halos
 and shorn heads-

their soles
 touching sacred ground.

Side By Side

Oh it's a beautiful night!
The moon is full
And the stars are glowing
While the trees, with Earth's cool summer breeze
Start slowly blowing...

A campfire's flames are burning so bright
While a young couple holds each other tight
Warming their hearts, as these two lovers embrace
Traveling together, through time and space
Oh how tonight, with their love, they won't hide
Two lovers forever, Side By Side

Under the stars, both of them lay
They've been together, happy, all night and all day
Holding each other, a sweet caress
While green grass stains her pretty white dress
But no words, to each other, do they say
Happy just sitting Side By Side, knowing no other way

Gazing up at the stars
Breathing in the night
Them together with nature
A beautiful sight

All the years they've both struggled
And how they cried 
Has led them here tonight
It matters not now
As they'll lie here forever, Side By Side

The Sands Of Time

We live in this place this world
This age it's time, wherein ebbs as flows
Rights and wrongs, are poured sometimes pounded
Into our eyes; far too expanse be they to itemize...
These twisted lies or perhaps, anothers disguise ?
Sin, is a multi-coloured hat worn amid ironics
Assembling dance and sway; Love, is the only thing
Beyound all things, that I know to be pure as absolutely true.

THE SNOW FLAKE

THE SNOW FLAKE

What happens to angels tears, as they fall from the
Heaven above, into diamonds of ice so are they
Transformed, turning, spinning in the atmosphere.
Until unique unto themselves, white pieces of 
Frozen lace, perfections icy miracle, descending
From the blue hewed skies of Nirvana.
Covering the last leaf of fall, one by one
The power flakes glisten beneath the October sunshine.
Crystal shells of ice, freeze into water cylinders,
Forming sickles of decorations, that hang from
Every house and tree.
It is truly a winder wonderland, so beautiful
That the angels themselves come to behold,
What their teardrops have made, as a single
Feather falls from wings of grace, it to turns
To ice, and is blanketed beneath the freshly fallen snow.

Here it comes now

that soft sail
and the wind looks as if
it’s trying hard to breathe 
i have elements in me
a compass borrowed, for some sorrow i assuaged
my eyes upward and unfolding
over some wave i might beach
adrift
my cuffs are turned up
and arms are a reelin’, in that wind I know 
is my kite yet to a’sail on this sea
coming for me

Affliction

The darkness of light impossible to see the pain and the lies always damaging you reach and get burned not understanding this is my disease nature of the beast Suddenly my light is taken away my darkness was revealed taking me as slave when all I ever wanted was for someone to say please stop, for me or enter an early grave Now face to face with all of my demons how can I fight them if I don't want to beat them until the reason arrives, then I shine a little at first but that small thing, is mine The den of ten thieves come up with a plan a whole set of new lies that every single man cannot resist believing it's seeming to be that a horrific ending is just what I need Then all of the sudden my small shine swallows time and with that virtue my face comes to life I would never hurt you please, know this to be yet no one believes me this curse grows like a tree I hate my helpless fate why can't I make a new life for me that no one can take why can't I escape a prison not for me for years I accept this tired sense of defeat The small shine barely intact, inside until Saint Anger starts to burn me, alive I find I'm set off by my wrong, senseless self until I am talking to no one, in Hell So I pick up my pen power to create a new world for me where I design my escape in my invisible state the Devil don't notice that one of his children is no longer hopeless I stop all my madness by power of pen for years my sword drew nothing but sin the yin and the yang both helped me to find that I'm no longer afflicted when darkness lights my bright shine.

An Angel

An angel did befriend us, on earth, before one Christmas day.
Some say she was a comet, some say she was a star.
I say she was a gift from God, here to light our way.
She was a thing of beauty that shone across the land.
Leading to a humble manger, found in Bethlehem.

And what could be so important, for her to come our way?
A savior to our lands, and yes, our hearts and souls…
Triumphantly born on Christmas Day.
That day he was born the heavens truly did rejoice.
And she, a glorious light, continued to beacon forth God’s love.

Such an important part, that angel was given on that day.
She was a beacon to our hearts and the gifts of love… 
Guiding the Wise Men and shepherds endlessly along their way.
Thru her we learned lessons, such as: patience, hope, and how to give…
And yes, she led us to the Wondrous Man, who taught us how to live…

free cee FOR A FRACTION OF FOREVER

          FOR A FRACTION OF          FOREVER

Do you ever feel through forever and remember me?
A vibrant me who vowed the Vienna we would visit on vacation
And share the space of one stool set aside serendipity
When your wishes would be the only legal tender
While tenderness tamed torment

Do you recall the message our souls united once sent?
Anyone who saw us knew
Anyone who saw us saw only you
For you commanded one’s stare
With golden hair woven of wonder
And eyes that call to mind a sky you soared when you were only ten
With a sun that wished you ever back to when

When fickle snowflakes flicked themselves off a forest’s foliage
And love arrived in a slay pulled by two dreams and one reality
Everything else
In actuality
Becomes a triviality
For triumph becomes trivial when it tries to outshine the aura of an angel
Be that angel you
Be that angel true
That I might flight to take with you
And make with you a home formed from the fantasy of forever
And the beating heart of a flower plucked from the prettiest part of perpetuity
And granted its grace unto you
A lady whose eyes birthed blue
And whose gaze grows by the phase of the moon
That syncopation and a sultry song might  swoon
But songs fade
Music becomes mistiness
And the band bows to the bewilderment of twilight
When, as surely as night falls
A question calls
Do you ever find me in the center of forever?

A Portal Unto The Sun

My soul is among lions
I lie among the sons of 
Men who are set on fire.” 
Dramatica; expect the worst 
And hope for the best 
Is what some say ? 
In life and breath and love and death
Portents.. 
Stopping in front of the Azteca's 
Theatre admiring the lovely 
Mannequin girl adorned as a communal 
Daughter with long flowing hair and beads 
Her many colours; sitting amid the tickets booth 
Draped aneath cobwebs smiling and speaking 
Unto my spirit in hues of yesteryears arrays 
These, pantheon coronations... 
Red double doors with circular windows trimmed in black
Conversing an entrance to cross through its beckoning ?
A schizophrenic passing by again; this, a portal unto the sun.

The Rope of Hope

Ain't it strange...
That I attach to you...like a troublesome sore
Do you find it odd...
That I truly love you to the core

But it's true...I can get a little insane at times...when I'm in a certain phase
Sorry to say, but get used to my crazy, psychotic nature...or leave me to rot...
But it ain't no surprise that we all aren't normal and we all are peculiar in our own bizarre ways
Sorry to burst your bubble, but haha, yeah...I've been causing mischief and what not

You untied me from my utter demise...
And you drowned away my thoughts that spread lies
In my head...making it spin madly
Like a Mary-go-round...

But it's true...I can get a little insane at times...when I'm in a certain phase
Sorry to say, but get used to my crazy, psychotic nature...or leave me to spoil and rot....

Don't be afraid, baby
It's only in your mind...
Anxiety is brewing in your blood
And I can't seem to hold on to the rope of hope

But it ain't no surprise that we all aren't normal and we all are peculiar in our own bizarre ways
Sorry to burst your bubble, but haha, yeah...I've been causing trouble and what not

Time is ticking like a bomb about to blow up into smoke and flame
It alarms to say this, but how DARE you waste my valuable time
Time is ringing like a church bell chime...it's your time to say goodbye and it's my time to forget your name
It's alarming to hear broken records of memory replay in my head...it's almost crime

Thinking of you is wonderful and sublime

But it's true...I can get a little insane at times...when I'm in a certain phase
Sorry to say, but get used to my crazy, psychotic nature...or untie me from this tight knot

You made the decision to untie me from my utter demise...
And you drowned away my thoughts that spread lies
In my head...making it spin madly
Like a Mary-go-round...

Lady Lucifina II

After parting  this perfumed lace, in sheer from her bare naked
Flesh she slid her lovely beauty atop of,  the rose petals waiting
Wantings thirstful bed;  wrapping its arms about her ivory skin..
While she crawled unto the joyful pillows,  curling up into a tiny
Vanilla cream made ball;  gazing deeply  her emerald eyes black
Lipstick blue lashes  ruby red her flower spreading, love's wings
Ecstasy when clutching digging  these nails, she began to please
Squeezing tightly her breast; a trickling, in mars velvet my fangs.

WHISPERS OF LOVE

Sitting alone in the sand, witness the sun kissing the horizon. 
I hear the sound of angels, whispering love from above. 
I thought of the first time I held your hands in my palms 
And heard you cry, the sweetest whisper of joy in my heart. 

But this eternal distance seems so hard to reach, 
You have left me hanging in a bliss. 
Feeling the soft touch of the breeze. 
As it whispers goodbye, the last word you'd said. 

Tears are gently falling on my cheeks. 
As wind blew, I heard the lullaby I sang for you. 
Haunt me with memories that won't fade away. 
Wishing you're here beside me to fill this empty soul. 

But you're gone, no matter how hard I try. 
I couldn't recall the image of your smile. 
The echo of your laugh, twinkle of your eyes. 
'twas left inside the room that you left behind. 

I send a prayer, a whisper of hope in the wind. 
Wishing that you hear it in a place where you are. 
Please open the gate of sky, and hear me saying, 
Whispering the love from my heart, my little angel.

The mystery of a city angel

(for: Anita, a belle near Lagos campus)

shyly she smiles
her ever-floating smiles
wrecking the reason
out of the land;
impudence accompanies
her to all the hills –
sitting like an old goddess
of harvest & healing
she looks so calm
this angel of the city –
is she an angel of fertility
or the patron of virgins?
wisdom kicks on the faces
of old humanity;
& now she smiles away
with her heroic deeds
a queen of many misdeeds!

A NEIGHBORHOOD CHILD

One Christmas eve    my ceiling hung
With thready webs    a glow behind
Cast lace patterns on my bed

That Yule    eight reindeer ran the covers
Then through every midnight room
I cried to mother    father    brother

All of whom had shed    by dream
Their task of season’s rush and bother
Free    but lost to my entreat

“Can’t you see them paw    prance?
Oh    mother    how they rear and point
At Santa – that jolly     Christmas    ghost”

All filmy things    once designated
Then    not real    evaporated
And I sat straight up in bed

Rubbed the cobwebs from my eyes
Memory of tinsel    candy
Presents in my drowsy head

Awake to silence    angel hair
Little men in forest dress
Imaginary pixies on the stair

And then    remembering the tree
(all hazy else    it seems    had been a dream)
The tree that by our fireplace rose

In thought it glowed above the dreamy web
Those blue    green    red    silver lights    
Had formed quaint phantoms on my bed

I’m up    on tiptoe    and carefully
Am sneaking toward the living room
(Inky blackness    don’t you see)

Don’t you see the little man
Dressed in Santa suit   belt     and boots
Spreading presents neath the tree

Now truth be known    so sorry am I to say
‘Little boy blue’ is yet in bed
Those phantom figures swimming his head

And late that eve    ceiling bright
With visions of the coming day
The wisest Angel of the night

Makes visit    singing    of the play
A song of filial brotherhood
With child invests the neighborhood

Rest, Beautiful Guardian

rest, black, velvet wings. . .
your flight was long and turbulent
your heart is raging in blue fires of hell
quench your spirit, oh lost one
and whiff the fragrance that I now offer
broken heaviness threatens to tear you
release it all and weep, sweet angel
you have watched for oh so long, dear one
it is time that you won
the world itself rages war over another
your cry is muffled in the sorrows and screams
of other atrocities and sinful endeavors
the pain screams to devour your purity
your vigilance has become as a dry sponge
absorbing all moist negativity
all tears of forlorn gravity and angst
don't fall fearing you lack humility
you are the very strongest of all
willing to face the trials they suffer
rest along the begloomed clouds
let your delicate chin sink into the cushions
I will keep watch as you rest, beautiful guardian
my eyes are blackened with the darkness of humanity
but they know all is not lost
we are among a dying earth
an earth with so much potential 
still can be saved
do not fear you will see the end before a beginning is established!
do not fear darkness after the light!
prevailing still is the desire to stay alive
the power of will will be enough for sustainability
the power of self-sacrifice and self-awareness
will save the creation 
seek the future at hand, beautiful guardian
rest in thought and body, knowing all will be okay
everything will be okay
and now, beautiful guardian,
it is time to rest

Her Final Words

"No." She whispered before drowning into her sorrows.
Her life had been a simple happy one. 
There were no pains and no troubles.
Life was life and people were people.
Life was simple.
and life was all about tomorrows.
Life didn't know about sorrows.
Her sorrows.
Those same sorrows that she drowned in never existed. 
They were never there, but where?
First to be sad in the naive town of joy.
Sorrow became contagious and what was known as happiness no longer was there.
It was non-exististent. 
A meager thought 
and a blessed memory.
She tried and tried.
She failed and failed.
Life was no longer hers.
For Pain was her only possession.
Her curse.
She lived and she died.
Yet, her legacy was passed on.
Never was it gone.
"No." She whispered before drowning in her sorrows, 
"Save them."

OF a Tree, Thee, and an Angel's Fee

Force feed me the taste of your skin

‘You will have to break my chastity belt wide open now
for I have sold myself into silent slavery to this ….our universal broken heart

even you will have to try hard……to save me now

I cannot recall your sounds…your hand motions 
as they devoured the subtle softness of me 
drew round my curvaceous places in curling ownership
intimacies’ sweetest embrace 

But too…you move to me 
with a ferocity that mowed the grass down  to a short golf course length 
from the living room table where you drew it happening… a hundred years ago

The length of your hair too has been a subject of much debate 
Love
that surging heavenly song...that told our story so well
 
like that movie from long ago about the girl who cut off and sold her hair to buy her love a golden watch fob and chain …the one who sold his golden watch to buy her a beautiful clip pin for her gorgeous long hair 
………………………………..you see how this goes …with true love

We cut off our noses and then turn backs on our faces 
and on each other on Facebook 

Itself the enemy…where only devils and the luckiest of angels spread


Tread on me beloved!
till I am awakened 
to our lips 
 which just now in writing I suddenly can feel meeting again

taste 
smell 
the salted brine of your pure water and sometimes beer soaked self

Is it me you feared 
as you said Good bye?

How little you know me 

like the formation of the first ever green tree grows up one limb at a time 
from a base long song of deep roots and strong center...so beautiful the Hosts stagger before its creation ….Halleluiah
The limbs sprouting forth like the wings bursting out of the flesh of the first angel 
who died in agony as they were formed….exploding from his shoulders
moving her hair aside as the arch of wing thrust like white tree limb from the goodness within
and the reincarnation of true kindness was born to the conscious of itself

so my love knows no limit 
my soul no separation
and my being no longing

Pure Beauty

Gazing admiringly upon her mesmerizing photo; lovely
Her spellbinding in beauty's enchanting, Gypsy Queen...
Never having truly been one whom delves into pictures
That they might take flight beyound, their still frames ?
Not amid this light surely these, her hues; quiet refrain
Poetics muse; etched of charcoals splendours a canvas
She as dark flowing hair cascading deep velvet streams
Bronzed perfection pondering her heart, and silhouette
Dreams brush black their white, blue; click, in sanguine.

Greatest Gift

I really do trust you honey
all one asks of you in return love 
please don't hurt me as you're, gem precious
Sparking dazzles the sun setting rose 

Gold awakening a treasure feeling inside 
dreams become reality, you babe the nightshades
silk satin warm kissing a star one magic wish 
Embracing deeply thought, of your touch in fingers 
One light weaving, gently drawing, sweet pure and raw 
Emotions sweetheart soft, warmly, loving you true
Tenderly alone one gift love you're an angel

Il Fiore Della Bruma P3

Eyes are a beauty like no other,
Where your deepest sense shines like lustrous glass;
The perfect crystal structure,
A divine un-shattered over easeful stars.

Today I looked upon the light.

Today I woke from a heavy slumber
With memory much the same as dreams,
Blinds had been lifted,
And I draw my stillness
Towards the feathered window release.

I pour each breath to this outside air;
The calmly gaze of the soulful sky
May catch them, with wings extended backwards,
Embracing the pure and loyal tide.

The gentle hope of a heart.

Oh, draw in these breaths,
A delicate mixture of a transcendent draught,
Imbued with the devoted kiss of the echoing lake:
Cooled and tranquil to delve.

And lunar rush, tender compassion;
Both wild and soothing,
As the forever bond of eternal arms.
This draught I mix, uncork and bubble
Lulled and sweet, foamed over-flowing,
Gently poured, in reflection of sunburnt oak
And drunk in loyal acceptance.

May my hands never depart
From the shores of your warmth
And with sight fixed to a beauty like no other,
And with a flame in heart:
Today I looked upon the light of words
 I love you… Hope you don’t read that and feel awkward…

Sleeping Beauty II

Watching her tiny precious light..
Standing at the kitchen's window wearing 
Hand me downs, worn blue dress; her auburn
Strawberry curls hiding her dreamful eyes; gazing
Through this lonely wishful glass ? Just to lie within 
A bed of dust; rest her weary mind, escape the rust...
Her beauty's heart in a tin can, if you must; sleep, sleep, sleep.

Thank you

In a little corner of my heart I hold
Sounds and sights that I behold
Stories and tales I have never told
Fond memories I will have when I grow old

In my memories I see a face
So beautiful and charming, so full of grace
A face that changed my life in its entirety
A face I may never ever see

My memories are of an autumn glow
Of a palace, a garden, where time tends to slow
Where a church bell tolled and in prayer I knelt
Where the loving touch of an angel I felt

I was tired and dreary and full of sorrow
I had nothing to give, no love to borrow
My heart ached as punishment of my sin
My life had ended before it could begin

The angel dared me to dream anew
To mend my life’s torn muscles and sinew
To find love and share it with one and all
Not to lose heart and stand up if I fall

Since then I have learnt to live
Learnt to be happy and not to grieve
Learnt that a day always follows the night
Learnt that survive, I just might

My thoughts always go back to you
Oh Angel! What would I be without you?
All my happiness is a tribute to you
So let me just say, Thank you

Behind The Red Door

She held a secret slight fetish and, she loved to be spanked..
It made her feel alive inside; she would cry as wet the sheets
Of silk whereupon her beauty did lay; fragrant, palms fulfilling
Gushing streams in swelling dreams a need she'd plead, please.

Encounter with an Angel

I have imagined an encounter
with an Angel

Most likely, it will be
on some opalescent morn
when the lumbering gait of clouds
meets the raphsody of dawn with
ribbons of light

Where I, in some perennial field,
in sadness wait-

With a message aureate,
she will step blithely, and
O the sight of wings will scintillate
to coax from me, a new belief

There is more to life and dreams
than what seems transient.

The Comfort of an Angel

Alone in my room I lay grieving on my bed.
I suddenly feel a hand touch my head.
God sent me an angel to comfort my soul.
I'm not alone now, her hand I will hold.
A comforting angel whom I did not fear,
stood there beside me and dried my tears.
I hear an angel's voice,
to my heart she did sing.
I even felt the fluttering of her great wings.
God sent me an angel to comfort my soul.
I felt her hand brush upon me,
the long locks of gold.
The light around her was so very bright.
The dress she was wearing was the brightest of white.
She washed upon me the feeling of peace.
No longer did I have the weight of grief.
A glorious, heavenly, spiritual being.
I know now it was not a dream.
God sent me an angel to comfort my soul.
I will never be alone in the cold.

Angel Clouds

~*~Angel Clouds~*~

Angel clouds all around
Everywhere they are proclaiming the glory of our King!
Trumpets, lions, and angels heralding!
Every single cloud a masterpiece calling out to the world 
That the Messiah is soon to arrive on the scene.
Are you ready? Are you ready to see Jesus in His fullest glory?
The angels are standing their posts and entertaining themselves
Through their God-given creativity.
Likened to children building sandcastles along the edge of a mighty ocean
They are sculpting and creating images to bring glory to their King!
The next time you look up and see an image of our Savior remember 
The children of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob.
The angels made clouds for them too as they traversed the wilderness
For 40 long years.
The angels entertained them with their gifts of creativity and gave them a focal
point too!
Look up, children of the most high God. Look up and see the splendors of his 
mighty angelic army.
They are doing their part to cheer on the Bride of Christ too!

Gwendolen Rix

I dedicate this poem to my very dear friend, Andrea Dietrich, who is one of my 
favorite poets of all time! This poem is written in response to the many 
supernatural sightings around the world of magnificent shaped clouds created 
in their fullest glory to honor the soon arrival of Jesus Christ to collect his 
Bride! The rapture of the church of Jesus Christ is at hand. Repent and be 
ready or be prepared to endure the most difficult time this planet has ever 
experienced. These are the events written of in the book of Acts 2:19.

My Greatest Work

He is my greatest work
like Christ who said
I come like a beggar.

He came to me like a child
wrapped in newspapers
on my front door step.

I took him into my home
and my life.

In the beginning
everything was new and fun
we played together like he 
was a puppy dog
big beautiful brown eyes
and he would get into trouble
but only minor ones.

As he grew his troubles
grew along with him.
Costing me more money and
time and loss of friends and family
who asked “why do you waste our time with him”
sleepless nights and heart pain and more pain
and more pain.

Doubts that I made a big mistakes
why do I think that I am god and
can save him or make myself the latest
911 hero.

For more than 16 years with him.
But one night I had a dream
a pale angel told me that
she needed me.

I was confused and shocked.
Why I am needed 
I am only human.
She said that she can not live without me
that she needed someone to believe in her
and have faith in her for her to do her work


Then I thought about him
my life's works has not been
in vain because like the angel and Christ
he needs someone to believe in him until
he can believe in himself
and know that he is also
God.

Glimpse of an Angel

In deep long nights I quietly reminisce
How different worlds came to collide
A simple hi-hello to capture me
And the rest just found its place


The large space is significant
Yet the structures are not even noticeable
Within those pillars lie a companion with a soul
And as the ink blots, see how even more beautiful it has grown


Through the rising and setting of the sun and moon
Someone makes me feel I’m one in a million
The secrets shared and the not-so-secrets unraveled
The laughter and the tears, the memories of a beautiful friendship


And in this bittersweet life of mine
I had a glimpse of an angel
An angel who started sharing life with me
An angel holding my hand through this journey


Her sweet name paints a smile
It gently tickles my young heart
You need not ask me who
For the angel’s name is YOU.

Inside out beauty

Hi princess sparkling treasure
always touching forever beautiful 
hearing from you a song sings 

Thinking of you all the time dreaming
each message looking upon your crowning beauty 
Tonight I smiled looking into a pearly white moon face

Full dreams around you darling
picture perfect in my mind
I will with love, open my heart and soul to you

When darling your arrow pierced the heart 
Cupid you play with all strings 
picture shining out from the dark 

A Hollywood  star in my eyes 
with your smile feelings of being touched 
by wings of an angel warm

Purest lady of light smiling

Angel

                                                                   Angel

From a distance the sound of feathers 
A whole host of words often whispered
As if you haven't already heard his saving message
In bitter silence we slowly become unshackled
From this lying bitter place of cold ego's
Then angel spreads her wings out on windows peak
She then keeps silent from inside her swell;
At its cold whispers haunting to dwell
Many keep to themselves not wanting to be alone
Then a cold chill sends a rage down my spine tingling like off the vine
In time the sun heats up out on waters edge devides
Many a demon would so often run away & hide
Angels totally surrenders out on its night scene
A brandished web of forbidden design,
For some the angel would lie in wait to deceive
In triumphant sounds of musical magestic beings light the scene
We our still here to help egnite its flame
While the entire world outside lies helplessly insane
Out on its playing field some have no game,

When our generation dies so does the other,
The angel of darkness will seek to inhabit its light
Shackled from a memory on a certain quest nor plight

Angels In The Hospital

I have heard of Angels before and I know that they are all around. They appearin the most unusual places at the time when you need them. You don't always recongnize them, for they don't always have wings. The angels have sweet voices and they make you feel good. They could be anyone, from your neighbors to your friends. But sometimes they are people, that you have never seen before. There are two special Angels that i want to talk about. I had a stay in the hospial, where I thought I was going to die. I had opened heart surgery and a triple by pass. As I was in an I. C. U. room of the Houston North West Medical Center, I was feeling very sick, not being able, talk or do anything. I kept praying and asking God if I would ever get out of there. My prayer was answered that night, when an Angel came to me. She said her name was Sara and she was there to care fopr me. She did just that. She sweetly smiled at me and assured me that I would be alright. By morning, she was gone, but another Angel came. She told me, her name was Julie and that now she would now take care of me. I spend four days in the I.C.U. with my Angels next to me. After that I was sent to another floor, but I will never forget those two Angels That spend those days with me. My Angels didn't have wings, but their spirit could fly free...

In Loving Memory of Teahl Doley

Her brown hair.
Her kindred spirit.
Her lovely eyes.
Her smile.
Her skin.
All of those I will never see again.
Sitting in a lonely hospital bed she fought it while it literally ate her alive.
She stayed strong through it all.
But everyone has a breaking point.
She looked into her mother’s eyes and smiled.
As a tear dropped from her mothers eye..
BEEP
The line went flat.
Her brown hair.
Her kindred spirit.
Her lovely eyes.
Her smile.
Her skin.
Never to be seen again.
~{In memory of Teahl Dooley who passed away from cancer at only 14. Rest in Peace Teahl}~

My guardian angel

Jonah guardian angel 
Great prophet 
of Israel 
In God's path 
You ran away from the Lord 
On a passage 
From a seaport 
Of Joppa 

God commands everything 
On a ship 
heading away 
Everything in his creation 
He blew upon the water 
Sending a storm 

Threatening to break 
the ship asunder 
A terrified crew 
they began casting lots 
Coming to the conclusion 
Jonah was responsible 

For the raging storm 
He asked to be 
Thrown overboard 
A small boat 
from the ship 

They began 
rowing for the shore 
The waves 
they just kept 
getting higher 
Afraid of God 

The sailors 
Cast him overboard 
Into a storm 
raged sea 
The water became calm 
A sacrifice 
they made 

As the crew 
swore vows 
To God the almighty 
Instead of drowning 
Got swallowed 
by a whale 

In the belly 
Jonah cried 
Repenting with tears 
In the Almighty 
Lord's name 
Praising him 
to the highest 

In poetic statements 
salvation came from 
The Lord Almighty 
Inside the giant 
Of a fish 
For three days 

God commanded 
The whale 
to vomit 
The redundant prophet 
On dry land 

This he obeyed 
His master's call 
Walking through Nineveh's 
Proclaiming in forty days 
Destruction of the city 
From the weather 
To the whale 

A supernatural rescue 
On land his hair 
bleached white 
Ghostly his linen 
From the whale's 
stomach acid 
His skin pale 

Surprisingly 
the Nineveh people 
Believed Jonah's message 
Wore sackcloth 
Covering themselves 
In ashes 
Hiding in shame 

Almighty God 
Had compassion 
Sparing them in his mercy 
He did not destroy the city 
One of wickedness 
Israel's enemy 
Spared 

Stopping outside 
the city to rest 
God he provide 
a vine 
Shelter from the warm 
Baking sun 

Again he questioned God 
Jonah was very angry 
With the Almighty 
Questioning 
Why did he spare 
the enemies 
Sworn unto 
Israel 

Next day 
God provided a worm 
That ate into the vine 
Withering and dying 
Grew faint 
in the sun 
Jonah he complained again 

God scolded 
him severely 
No concern 
was shown for the vine 
What about Nineveh 
Population 120,000 
lost souls 
As the story goes 

He spent three days 
In the inside of a whale 
The same length 
Our Lord Jesus 
In the tomb 
You are the salvation 
Of lost souls 

Thinking he knew better 
Than the Lord 
Who shows mercy 
With forgiveness 
To all people 
Who repent 

In a life defying God 
Speaking in openness 
With all honesty 
Wise is to obey 
The one who loves 
Us the most 
praised 
in the Heaven's

Swan Song Lane

When the time is right
one again will walk with you unaided
in an eon of age,
where promises are made
not to conform to life’s illusions.
Only now this earthly spirit
will not last forever,
the journey has been long, now weary,
and this pen is spent
needs to fade
into one’s own mitigation.
Yet your smile your poetry
one will gladly hold dearly
with in one’s heart forever,
as life blends with in
one’s terminal sunset
before methodically melting
into the golden horizon!

I just don't understand why

I don't understand why we live a life were the ones we love die young or the wise ones we love die too soon for us to have learned enough from them we walk on the path we choose but it seems there’s always a road block or tough times we have to learn from with the loss of a loved one that’s a family member or a child we have bared along the way to whatever destiny has planned for us at the end of our road I guess it’s god way of telling us he needed them to be our guardian angels instead of them walking with us on our path we have so many unanswered questions an things we don't yet understand I guess when the time comes we will understand the why's we don't yet have answers to an the path we walk will be the rite path in the end I just hope when time comes we will all see the ones we lose on our path an get the why's an questions answered

Kiss of Heaven

I always thought
You were an angel in disguise
Perhaps it was the light in your eyes
Or that innocent cherubic grin
That made my heart go for a spin
Perhaps the beauty in your face
Or your other worldy grace

What was it that gave you away
You ask of me on this day
It was...your kiss!

When your lips closed over mine
I sensed something divine
Enveloped in heaven’s embrace
I took a peek at your face
Thinking you’d disappear
And leave without a trace
Wing your way back home
And leave me heartless and alone
But you’re here
You’re here
In my arms
Your kiss of heaven…
My forever charm

Beautiful Children

Singing around in love;
Smiles built from the ground.
Holding hands in the dance;
Laughing with brothers and sisters,
All in His Glorious Name.
Throughout His perfectly sculpted land:
Look around because this is it;
Look around because this is love;
Look around and know, understand, comprehend,
Rejoice because you are perfect;
You are God's beautiful children!

Awakening

Are we awake or are we still sleeping?
Blind to the hurt, and deaf to the weeping.
Ashamed of religion and supportive of the new,
Aware of the lies and hidden from what’s true. 

Worship the evil and turn away the pure,
Developing disease with an unknown cure.
Starving the poor and overfeeding the wealthy.
Killing the sick and drugging the healthy. 

Going to war for some kind of power,
Building tall structures over all types of flower.
Cutting the trees and polluting the air,
All out of greed, with no sort of care. 

Turning us against our own, 
And help from up above.
Making us beings of hate,
Instead of ones of love. 

Demonizing the mystic,
Criticizing the wise.
Making our own family members,
Into people that we despise.

Awaken to the torment, 
Be aware of all the pain. 
Those who are misleading,
And claiming that we are insane.

the morning, if it must

the morning groans as she untangles from the covers
worn and blunt
from the night before

her eyes puffed and wrinkled, wrinkled and blink
winking with bleary sting.  mustard gas
sinking
swallowing in the hollows
choking the cities yellow
choking the grass grown over
grave row
choking the green grass
brown
burying the noble and their children
who only wanted revenge on
each other

say, the ghost shirt.  say, for the
virgin
no more wire, no more line
it all gets sent through collapsing
time

between
towers 
of 
aluminum

drowning man, drowning with the fear of
that fire
that he has forgotten, or
the fire that has forgotten
him
fingering dull charms 
that he has wrapped round
the neck.  to study on
to construct 
worry on
like a rosary.  a rosary of
dull, clanking, cold
charms

to keep him occupied
to keep the morning
meaning
full
material, predictable
to keep an attempted faith
still
able

Nerves Gone Wild

Nerves in a jar, my life is a mess
I hurt form this world as my poem suggests
Cut from a rose that smells no more
Healing like a dove thats flown shore to shore
What became of our love thats anybodys guess
We forgot about thinking, now about what comes next

Some of the times I will remember more I will forget
It hurts today tommorrow I will give it my best
My head becomes heavy my mind becomes my nest
What to do with all of the love I have here hidden in my vest
Come to my sences my heart in my hand
I think about all of the things that I can
My now today I understand
I can will you the love to better comprehend
From here I wish you the world
The universe a best
Untill you are willing 
The person beside me is only a guest

PORTRAIT OF AN ANGEL


With angels' kisses
   dear little one hushed now to sleep.
With angels' breath 
    fanning your pearly cheeks.
Between unharmed breaths
    a trace of angels' smile on your cherry lips.

Tell the story, sweet one
    of the dream you're dreaming now.
Stories of angels that only you can tell.
    Angelic mystery foretell.

Little babe, tucked now to bed.
A blissful slumber
    with angels together
       the heavens smile they all remember.
I'm sure you're slipping into some place
    adorned by the heavens.
Songs of whispers and lullabies - 
    your quietude; the heaven's melody.
Fluffy pillows and soft blankets -
    encircling your softness;
        comforting your presence.

Little tucker, those tiny ticklish feet
Will they take me with your angels' fleet
To some place you keep?
As I too now fall asleep.


(A mother's special tribute for the Little Ones whom I had lovingly nestled in my 
bosom and nourished to sleep. And, in special memory of my son Bryce who 
should be turning two today. I wish you were blowing your candles and toying 
the colorful balloons. The baby giggles are surely missed at home. Our short-
lived memory of you is only a heartbeat away. Fateful day : close to midnight of 
Nov. 29, 2011)

Resting Spirits

up on the hill where you can just about see heaven 
thats where a spirit goes when it's concious is guilty of sin 
the spirit rests till it's own will can see 
all things that were are and will ever be 

if I wait till the dawn rises the reflection will stare 
straight twords the soul untill God's will is there 
up twords the sunlight follows the brilliant suns glare 
back from the heavens with all new flare 

where there is an opalesence look to the new moon 
follow it's shadows in a monthly gracefull swoon 
peacefullness in it's patterns a place away from the suns doom 
Carry me there away from here resting in it's shadows 
here in my souls cocoon

My Mask

It hurts all the time
This pain in me never stops
I want to cry for you
I want to scream for you
I want to beg for you
I want you to be here
This cant be fair
This cant be real

But I smile and I laugh
I get up every morning to go to work
Throw on a happy face and make some jokes
I come home and enjoy my day
I have fun
And I continue on
But I’m so hurt
I’m so lost

Seeing you in there killed me
I could never get the phone call out my head
The screams from my mom
The walk up there to see if it was true
But most of all I wont forget you
In the casket
Touching your hand
You were so cold
You didn’t belong there
Seeing you go into the ground
Seeing them fall apart
Feeling my heart break into pieces
When all I could do is scream
I will never forget that day

And every time I smile I want to cry
Every time I laugh I want to cry
Every time I think I want to cry
Every breath I take takes a little bit out of me
Because I want to cry

I want this to not be real
I want to had spend more time with you
I want to hug you
Laugh with you 
Tell you I love you
That I was always there
That I am still always here

I am so broken
But I continue on with life

Because God took you and not me
He wanted me here for a reason
So ill continue on for
You
I will laugh
And smile
And pretend
Anything to make it to the end
To see you

I miss you just isn’t enough
It doesn’t mean enough


What heals a broken heart?
Time they say

But time wont bring you back
So my heart stays broken
As I pretend to smile

I miss you
I miss you
I miss you


As I’m falling apart

My mask then goes on



RIP Bebo... 17 was to young

MARVELOUS

MARVELOUS

Obstacles, stumbling blocks, mountains to climb, bridges to cross, many times we don’t.  With God’s help, we focus and pray that we achieve never giving up because the Lord has promised us the victory.

In God’s speed is my destiny! I must believe in a power greater than myself.
I stand on my mountains and The Word states: “Look to the hills for your health” crossing my bridges within the Lord’s intellect.

Gathering God’s protective armor in which I stand for righteousness.  I project the conquering of many souls though my evangelistic journey.  All is in the name of Jehovah.

In God’s speed is my spirit in which I must believe in a power greater than my existence; kicking my stumbling blocks, as I look to hills for my help!  Obstacles are no more and The Lord’s eyesight adores, as I worship The Almighty God.

In time, I will have acquired a Buddha presence.  And people all over the world will have seen The Almighty God – The Lord – Jehovah.  Mankind will be more refined for the second coming of Jehovah God Lord’s son – Jesus Christ Lord - who died for all of us {ACTS 20:21}.  So let’s join together as a universe in the magnificent.  The eyes of Jehovah God Lord are upon us and his son – Jesus Christ Lord’s – spirit is with us knowing:

This is quite marvelous.

[“But he [or she] that shall endure unto the end, the same shall be saved” (Matthew 24:13).]

To Where a Snowflake dies

A war in heaven reluctantly concedes
To the lullaby's in the night singing softly
Covering us in heavenly whisper blows
As feathers falling light so intense and gracefully 
Escaping God's whitened watery coves

And somewhere up above
I believe there are angels also grooming
Thus, for the twilight showing, shedding as they rush
The world as such, always in a hurry
But, for an instance and out of nowhere
An avalanche of marvel captivates the hush

And in my distant mind I most certainly can relate
As to the stars and ancient sands of grain
My tongue tasting these miracles of wonder
Reaching further to acquiesce
In greetings, to miniature designs
Crafted out of God's very hands of great

While, celestial bodies move
Constant shadows consume
Around assumptions of the human mind 
Thus, begins the dusk and ends 
To the place where a snowflake dies

Look around
Who is it that seems to care
Or thinks to ponder the manual labor input here
With hammers, chisels, nuts and bolts
Never to witness to a mere mistake
Or upon discovery any kind of error

Yet, I listen… to the silence…
Extracting all its pleasure
Before, another million frigid seedlings ashen
Met with daunting fate
And in the still of tranquil
Neither snowflake cries out or offers up complaints

For a day
Or merely several nights evermore
A complex purpose
Or to thus, a simpler existence
Then, I pause...
Unto supposition, as I meditate the message

Guesses drift off, into what's last unknown
Of the never ending knowing
Embracing their provident life
Watch as they embrace each other closer
In a bank of ice, waiting for the melting

My Secret Angel

Where do you stay in the day?
Like the moon in a mid-morning sky.
My hidden angel where do you fly?
You are always there by my side.
Everyday you whisper your secrets to me.
How sweet. How kind.
My secret angel.
Where do you hide your wings?
or do you perfer to soar free?
My little angel,
so gentle and curiouse,
how would you fair without me?
Beautiful angel
so careing and strong,
never do you stop to frown.

My little angel where did you go?
why did you fly home on those hidden wing,
to leave me behind?
My secret angel,
why did you stop breathing?
My sad little angel,
why were you taken from me?
When did your smile slip from your face?
Dear beautiful angel,
so kind and caring,
do you watch over me,
from your perch in the sky?
My little angel,
Why did you have to die?

Angel's Melody

The music must be played!
The audience is waiting,
to hear the Angel's Melody.

A masterpiece, I tell you!
That none have ever heard before
A likeness to everything
and nothing at all.

The curtains go up,
the audience is quiet
and she is not there.

The music sheet is torn to pieces!
The only copy,
and it lies beside the piano.
A piece is missing!

No one can complete it.
No one can perfect it.

It is a masterpiece!
It is brilliance!
It is incomplete!

She is gone
and with her...gone is the Angel's Melody

The Chocolate Bar and the Soldier

He stood there with grease up and down his woolen uniform
Tears drenched his solemn pale face
From beneath the bunker he crawled belly first
Corpses of soldiers scattered like red leaves in a Mideast autumn day
But here no wind was blowing
No noise but the tears and sniffling of the young Dutch boy
He came out from where he was hiding
Beneath a German tiger tank
They stood there engaging eyes upon each other
Neither knowing what to expect of the other
The soldier reached deep in his knapsack for a treasure that would bring a momentary smile
Broken in several pieces he sensed, but not melted
A sigh of relief as he attempted to reach out to the little man
Not more than ten years old but forced to deal with the pain of a never ending war
Forced to mature overnight as the bodies of his parents were already carried away 
On the backs of wagons
With dirt and grime wedged beneath his war torn hands he reached out
He reached out to touch the little boy’s hand
From behind him he presented a gift as though it was Christmas morn
A single Hershey’s chocolate bar to soften his heart
The boy reached out and took the bar excitedly
Never expecting to find chocolate amongst the ruins of his once beautiful town
Never expecting to even find a friendly face that would be interested in how he felt either
He stood there eating the chocolate bar slowly
Savoring each morsel of kindness
The soldier disappeared into the darkness
The boy stood there contemplating the moment he met this angelic soldier
They would be forever friends in his heart
The little man with his chocolate bar and the soldier

A Forever Dream Sleeps Beauty

I went to the little islands today 
under the evergreen fir tree, magic 
Sang, sitting on a large rock enchanting 
over looks the lake love, will you sweet babe 
Deny me as just one guest following 
dreams listening to songbirds in sweet song
someone who shares this one view I lay back

A clear blue sky with fluffy ivory 
white bleached clouds thoughts stirring tunes playing 
Dreaming inside ocean waves thoughts drifting

Ten by ten a fish jumps up and plops
rippling rings forever circle hope
deeply thoughts sailing always my strength 
Dancing whispers inside a breeze warm
silently loving best memories
Those in my life dream angel were made
within this one spot I kiss honey
Golden leaves now scattered on the soil 
beauty I will never forget you 


10 syllable counts by 10 equals one in a hundred 
9 syllable counts by 9 always and forever holds a dream on that cloud

Pulled From the Abyss

Assuming… cold…
An abyss of extricated lies
Squeezing out like bile from your brain
I can’t breathe when the voice of yours
Is so edgy…so rock hard
As if my life is but a layer over you
That you can break and manipulate and BUILD UPON
I cringe—I turn into a statue 
Defeated and ever-blinking
As the rest of my existence around is sinking
I don’t want to be a part of it
But I feel the chains linking to you
As you twist and pull and contort
I am still and stiff as a board
Cracking and rotting—a piece you hoard
Labeled unworthy
Fables unwinding
I’m still here blinking the tears away
But as the world occupies my spirit
My physically chained body yearns
Yearns for a warmth that never comes
That is always promised

A voice from the deep draws me in
Pulling me up for a moment
Touching me
The voice is cold but his arms are warm
And every familiar face around dies away
Dark eyes crushing my tears into powder
And I smile
Because I have never read a face
As genuine and unassuming as his
And for once
I welcome what once was disease
I welcome the haunt of his existence
Because though he has raised me from the abyss
He is willing to come again
And keep on pulling

If Angels did exist

I wonder if Angels do exist,
 if they could touch a heart and heal it too. 
If Angels exist do you think they knew pain like I do?
 Would they shed a tear for me when I'm down?
 Would their tears wash away All the regrets I cling to?
 If it be so 
I'd ask with all my power for the Gods to send down the tears
 of A thousand Angels, just for me. 
But An Angel for each would be fair,
 taking turns helping each soul heal from within
 like the memory I had about you today...
 A gentle touch, before you were chosen to be an Angel too, 
or the Sound of thunder whilst your heart once did beat. 
An Angel for each problem,
 the pain imposed, for the weakness exposed,
 an Angel of the night, delivering me into light.
 How would I know what name I must call in my aid?
 Angel of peace, or Angel of wisdom, 
what does my heart crave? 
What does my soul demand?
 Angel of freedom, that's her name...
 is that her name?

My Guardian Angel

The one watches over me in times of trouble
The one that keeps me safe when I'm in pain

There's never a time when I feel unsafe
Never a time when I feel my life is threatened
Because I know my guardian angel is always watching over me
When the days grow long and cold
My guardian angel keeps my heart warm

If it weren't for my guardian angel

PRISON HEART

I’m lost in an unknown world where I am not a stranger
Citizen of love recognize and value by all
People adore my knowledge about my country
As several relationships has been fabricate and re-established
‘Master of love’ I was called
All these is claim until I met her
She is the perfection of beauty
Angel amidst humanity
Her skin tone complements my dark complexion
Her hair kiss ass
Her dove eyes laid in between her pointed noise harmonized with long face and 
double dimple
Her breast flow the ocean of life in fulfillment of the holy book
She is supernaturally endowed below
Dream of living in her palace below and drink from milk of life above  
I call her End of discussion
She is my desire yet confused of certainty
My heart fails not to confront with golden words
I’m scared of response
I’m not scared of No but Yes
Presently in the net of two relationship in the name of love
My golden word for her shall be never to cheat on her
Previous word contradict contemporary words for her
Confused heart, let go of previous love and regain my country?

Was I Dreaming

Hell when the wind blows over
howling fiercely cold in different voices
twisting inside the whistling tunes in torment
One from a past long buried a ghost appears
wishing in beats of hail reliving the past darkness

Then the thunder roars reality
as the lightning lights up a December night sky
flashing inner vision my coming fate awaits 
such pains returned the awful nightmare awakens
looking up such sadness gripping the heartache
small crystal balls sparkling rain down

Alone I light my candle wishing 
black a ring around the wrists 
I tighten steel begin to pray to God
within the pain of swelling wrists
smiling feeling peace in innocence 

Tears fall in such shattered dreams
with a promise full of happiness love 
As you began to know me 
I felt our future bright together
golden sands our spirits and souls danced 
Into the realms within a fortress crowing queen
we both wished that day to stay here together forever

Dear Angel flies

Oh My Dear Angel flies

How beautiful you are!

Are you the messengers of beauty?

Are you from the home of heaven?

You are delivering the colors from the rainbow

 

How so tender you are!

My fingers get colors at all my touches

Your feathers and your art of sucking honey

Are my enchanting visions of mornings?

You are my Angel fly of my garden

 

Every shake of your feathers

Remembers kingdom periods of my land

Yes it remembers the fanning of king’s maids

 

Your beauty has been taken by all lovers

to cheer up their lover girls

You are my Angel Fly and

you are the pride of my garden

Special Star

Because it shine so bright,
I almost close my eyes,
Because it twinkling so hard,
It catch my attention,
but how can I noticed it?
since I am blind.

One day when the heavy rain visit me,
I listened to a whisper,
that I have been follow by a star,
I ask those whispering voice,
who is it?
and it replied back saying those were a special star,

I laugh, then I cried,
I hardly forced and ask it again and again,
but suddenly it shines,
but I am blind.

One day when I could open my eyes,
I tried to find those special star again,
but those whispering voice told me,
my special star suddenly faded,

I asked it why?
and it replied me and saying that,
I am not blind anymore.

to a devil-angel love

You are the devil 
and I've owned your soul 
but not your body 
yet my desire for you 
couldn't be satiated 
in one night 
in one only night 
of love 
My need of you 
has become a burning hell 
for eternity 
and this eternity 
that is so long and impenetrable 
has your name, my love, 
devil and angel 
at the same time 
you 
the only dream or nightmare that comes over me, 
and it consumes my life 
for all its extension 
and which will not abandon me 
because I've never had you

Little Treasure

And a pair of those little feet were stepping
Cheerfully, treading each period which was carrying her somewhere nowhere
A fragmented laughter echoed from all angles hailed her name

For she is the apple of her father's eyes...

She grew with everything 
As if born with beautiful wings, which not only adorned her body
But abled to carry her flew away to heaven that was made for her...

For she was the angel of her mother's heart....

Petite figure stood on a naivete ...
The dream world slowly manipulates, toying her, risking her 
A trust betrayed finally ...

And that scourge became the first stain of her life ...

Those little feet have now taken their big steps
A girl has grown into a lady
By rising from the rubble of brittleness
Let the kisses of the past remain there and dwell

For the broken wings of her last
For the fear and frighten which had past
For the big steps of her sane
For the pain and stain which finally end for her gain

My pet

My pet is an E.T. come from far outer space,
In that incredible green morning full of grace,
Ready to take compassion on uncomfortable race.
I mistook him for a vainglorious giant green ant,
Or a friendly, playful silver chameleon vagrant 
In a strange green cage like an UFO, or a bright cube;
A changeable dark hollow sphere, ellipsoid or tube 
Was his environment, where he felt incredibly free.
A fullerene as molecule composed entirely of C,
Might resemble his changeable colors and forms...
Coming from other world, he had different norms.
Like a tortoise or a snail with their long life shells,
He bore his genetic and civilization dowry`s codes,
And no hesitation in polishing them in many modes
Of significant recollections as invisible diamonds
In some allotropes forms with recordable sounds.
In their world, the injured ET always may complain
Regarding the rude restrictive rules to self maintain,
And too severely lathe`s and Lathes` laws to bind
A submissive or subversive aim of washing mind.
If many faces gambles have gained a grinder at hand,
Deceived by logic, or urged by mirror`s command,
Whatever transformation and simulation`s tidy tie,
The judging common world expects our constancy.
In his multi-dimension space, my pet`s only obsession`s
A shift character shows multitudes of points’ collections 
By dragging a 0-dimensional object in some direction,
One obtains a 1-dimensional object and self-selection. 
By dragging a 1-dimensional object in a new direction, 
One obtains a 2-dimensional object as self-protection.
My ET pet is playing in his cube beyond the K-K project. 
Indeed ,he could collect an (n + 1)-dimensional object 
By dragging an n-dimensional object in a new direction.
In our world,this game seems to be a natural selection.
He lived upon the analogy that (n + 1)-dimensional balls 
Have n dimensional boundaries, beyond the buckyballs...

If he he had wings ,could we put him in a modern hen coop?
Our world build this as a new loop-hole or as an alarming loop...

I Tell You These With a Black Heart

I recite scriptures in cemeteries,
persuading the fallen to follow the path to my chambers.
I sing them hymns of what I claim to be mine
as I hide my blood stained gums,
they kick and scream with lead legs
so I take their palms and drag them
through the storm.
Some get dismantled from the socket.
Only they can fix them.

Their bodies starved and withered
as we enter the eye of the storm,
the eye of God.
We have arrived in hell,
enclosed by tornadoes and hurricanes.

Hush now, you must keep my words secret
for there are worse things on Earth
than dying in my arms.

I watch every one of them drop 
six feet below.
I could choose to leave them buried,
give them to the maggots,
But instead I carry them through the inferno.
They mustn’t walk alone.
Walk with me to the afterlife.
They must die through what I died through.

They are all casualties to me,
no longer humans.
I don’t know their names.
If they speak them I am deaf.
Cries are frequent but never heard,
never nourished.

I was an angel once, of my own,
preaching praises,
but now I spend my days
creating curses,
designing the darkness that is here.

Sometimes I wish I didn’t have to do this.
But I crossed coals for my mistakes
so they must fight the fire
just as I did.
I was alone for years
in the eye of the storm,
in the eye of God,
in hell.
I became the first to claim the agony of sin.
I saw everything through his eyes.
Perspective is an interesting thing.

I created this place out of
loneliness and self-destruction.
I made the everlasting storm.
But I cannot control how the victims survive here.
I constructed the room,
and they must build the atmosphere.
I am only the transporter from
grave to final destination.

They must relive and realize their wrongs
through the lense of his irises.
You cannot crawl under the sheets
during the thunder when you live here.

Maybe through the eye
they will be able to see clearly,
but muddy waters are often 
and rationality is masked under emotion.
I carry them to the calmness,
but the tragedy of hell is that
most decide to walk back into 
the monsoon.

Sicklied Breezes

Here comes that familiar breeze again Emptied of hope, it always returns to refill Some other abandoned soul A soul that delves deep into my own, Drifting in an almost shameful stance Festered ignorance, time, and thought Resting under the wing of frightened hope It is cool, like any ordinary breeze It pleases all that feel it, save I For I know it longs to take all that I have In one…single… swoosh You overlooked demon! Why are you so gentle? Why must you manifest in sorrow and woe? Sleeping in the convent of my soul As others praise you and thank you You take me under tow Forever more, lost in this sicklied growth With a silent tune of rests within notes I remain where the breath is taken I remain your host The breeze grows painstakingly warm Filling all with passions unfolding Each soul finds its home Leaving me alone with a soul untold Always awake and crawling… and screaming Bold, all-knowing and thoughtless Wingless, tainted…filled with dread It is warm and hated by all that behold it And I grasp it, and hate it, and LOVE IT For it takes nothing and gives me all In multitudinous shrouds Beloved angel—why do you burn me so… Leading me into your sick embraces As others curse to your face You forever release in me A despairing freedom that I know longer wish for The melody caught—no room to breathe Harmony caked with ignorance does seethe For all no longer see… I was always the caller

Razor Blade State of Mind

I'm in a razor blade state of mind,
A place of darkness that's hard to find.

I sleep tangled in a blanket of pain,
On a mattress full of mayhem.
The darkness surrounds me
And there's nothing I can do. 
My past has become the lightning rod,
The only means by which my future
Can seem to conduct itself.
But who do I think I'm fooling;
What's an orchestra without a conductor? 

I once sang out loud,
But now I'm drowned.
The body electric left
Somewhere in a field,
Where it ceases to breathe.
We have no hope here,
We have no hope left. 

My mind is like my verse;
Jumbled and pointlessly poignant,
Hopelessly optimistic.
Scarred and scared and sacred,
It means so much nothing
That it's bound to mean something.

I am everything I despise,
Nothing that I admire;
I am sweat and I transpire,
Not so wet like fire. 
I'm in a razor blade state of mind,
I tell the truth but I'm a liar.

Pandemic

I have a problem with ignorance they say that it’s bliss;
But when you are blinded, there’s a lot that you miss.
The screams are all muffled into some kind of silence;
Your mind is attracted to all types of violence.

You avoid the trauma of those in pain,
Start focusing on success and what you can gain.
Your vision is clouded with thoughts of envy and wealth.
You ignore the symptoms and the decrease in your health. 

You digest all of the toxins and they’ll say you’re insane;
All while the poison seeps into your brain. 
You are void of all conscious thought;
You think that you’re good but really you’re not.

The evil possesses you in all that you do,
You think you have faith but you haven’t gotten a clue. 
The demons take over and then you are at loss;
Answering not to yourself but another big boss. 

You’ll start longing for a saving grace,
From up above or outer space.
An entity to save your soul-
To take away your sinful goal.

Angel's eyes

Angel’s eyes

Pensive in silence 
looked at the beauty 
of angel’s eyes

fill me with the glamorous nuances
darkest sky topping diamonds
asteroids
meteoroids
comets
and stars

expanse their
fabulous beauty
brightness
colorful in the sky 

fast rotating 
to a black concentrated hole
all ran towards
in a beautiful race
to the deepest hole
where all the beauty met

so amazing

o... my angel

truly beautiful eyes
passionately embraced 
my soul

shared me
an afterthought

the beauty of racing
in colorful dreams 
comfort rotating
crystallise my passion

o... my angel 
took me engrossed
in your beauty

forgot my lonesome
in chasing dreams

asteroids
meteoroids
comets
and stars

sprinkle in my melancholic heart
embellish my elegiac mind
immerse me
in what a beauty

guide me fly with you

o...angel’s eyes

Subconscious On My Mind

She visits in my dreams,
A place that I love to go,
For when my body is sleeping;
My subconscious starts to show.

She is not the same as when I’m awake,
She is fierce and unafraid; 
She watches over the pillows,
Where my head is soundly laid. 

She has wings just like an Angel,
Only hers are made of light;
With brilliant rainbow hues,
Enough to shine throughout the night. 

To me she looks much older,
Maybe even wise; 
One look at me and I know,
She can see right through my lies.

For her and I are one,
No hiding from the truth;
She understands that I’m growing,
Developing from my youth. 

She never passes judgment,
For herself would be included;
Her thoughts are always brilliant;
And never convoluted.  
I’m referring to my soul;
Aged throughout my lives.
She gives my words their meanings;
And my body is what she drives.

Inspiring my movements,
And wiping all of my tears;
Her voice is mine but rings through,
My head and out my ears. 

Perhaps it’s her who is writing this,
Giving me the rhyme;
My subconscious and my consciousness;
Working together for all of time. 

Although most won’t understand this,
That it is about a different part of me,
Tonight under the full-moon;
I’m setting my spirit free.

Allowed to dance in the stars,
And run across the sky;
Only to return to our body,
Suppressing her urge to fly.

Angel in Disguise

As murky clouds filled the celestial skies,
I saw an angel descending in disguise.
She smiled at me so stunningly, my conscious mind flee.
Oh, she is a beauty so rare for the world to see.
 
She gazed upon me; she had me drowned in her tiger-like eyes.
Her smile so ravishing, her hair like golden silk; worthy to idolize.
She talked with the voice of a mellow trombone, and sang like a violin.
Words like a choir singing or that of birds chirping,
Came from her sweet tender lips like cherries blooming.
 
And at the break of dusk, she is like the beautiful sunset,
With the ravishing smile and sweet tender lips.
Her skin glows like the moon at night and her eyes glimmers so bright.
She is the empress of my heart, so enchanting a beauty to withhold.
 
She is indeed an angel in disguise- beneath the serene earth,
Or high above the majestic skies.
She is blessed with tranquility, an angelic star-
She brings me joy and romance even when she is afar.

Echoes Deeply

Sweet talking buttercups
when your petal lips moved 
I was held in a butterfly trance 
floating warm heartbeats of breath
skipping inside drum rolls
batting lids whisper silently
behind scenes on chamber walls
precious deep gem shines
Dancing vision of beauties light 
dark jewels sparkling star luster treasure 
Princess pearl of the night sky 
alone wolf cold moon in shadows of life
smiling beautiful silver lining thoughts 
dreaming of your smile
The happiness in special moments 
your eyes such mirrors dazzling me
in you I found a beautiful soul 
floating with the spirits 
singing an angel

She Grasps the Heart Sweetly

I am running away eloping
with you sweet love  
inside the mind 
Silently breathing ore sighs 
 
A golden whisper blowing honey
melting treasure treats
softly in the wind silent warm
Blowing on precious pure beauty

Touching petal feelings 
fluttering without wings
sweet carrying emotions from the soul
Dancing within music one song forever

Glowing warmly desires 
sings gentle satin drumbeats
in a cotton echoing harmony
Always chocolate kissing nibbles 

In every single thought that whispers
love endearing each heartbeat
skipping gasps 
Sweetly grasps the soul
warming  echoing sighs deeply loving you

Can money buy love 2



Value people they worth more than money
Money is worth spending as people are worth loving
People are the currency you need to get what you desire
People will make you know people that will give you the money
People will provide the avenue you will make the money
Through employment, business contracts and projects

Value people without their money
Value people with your money
Value people they are worth more than money
Value people they are the asset you possess
Value people since they are the clothes we wear

People are those you need to make the money you want
People are those you need to build your reality
People are those you need to believe in your ability
People are those you need to invest in your creativity
People are those you need to influence your personality

People are those you need to make you a celebrity
People are those you need to inspire your originality
Be loyal to people than your money
Build a network of people and your money will serve you
Spend people wisely and invest in people prudently
Since money is worthless without people and 
People are senseless without love

Value People more than money
Since those who have people possess the money
Since those you know, know those who know where the money is
People are those who crack your ribs with their humorous laughter
People are those who irritate you and make you annoy others
People are those who make you like or dislike marriage relationship
People are those you spend your time with and your money on
People are those who share with you in your down times and up times
People are those who you share your emotions and intentions with

What is the essence of your money 
Without people to spend it with
What is the essence of your money 
Without people to share their love with you
What is the essence of your money
Without people to identify with you

People are worth cherishing without prejudice
People are lovely to be with and painful to live with
People are beautiful to smile with and sorrowful to depart from
People are enjoyable to let-go and horrible to stay-with
People are precious and pious… people are gorgeous and glorious

People are saints…people are demons
People are angels sent by God and the devil’s advocate
People are the devil you know
People are the angel you don’t know
People are the demons masquerading as the angel of light
So love people and respect people
Since your money is worthless without them around you
To celebrate with you and mourn with you

Shelby Flint

From your origins in California, you gained amounts of popularity. No matter where your travels would take you, success would always seem to be close by. Receiving a guitar when you were young, destiny became a life of music. A God-given angelic voice we hear. Each recording is a sweet, simple tune. Yes, you had an angel on your shoulder. That angel has never since departed. That lucky penny’s still in your pocket. The four leaf clover is in your locket. While you threw nickels in the wishing well, a warm and tender love was all you’d need. Your beautiful music enchanted us. You told us all about the boy you love. The years have passed, and you remain with us. Your kind gentle voice is one we still hear. Whether you are on stage, or on CD, we can enjoy all the sweet notes you sing.

Garden of Angels

A smile was what I got from you,
when you looked at me.
I cared for you each and every day,
and your bright eyes set me free.
Your laughter filled my entire house, 
and filled my heart with song;
then one morning, without warning, 
your tiny life was gone.

You'd become another angel,
in the choir of heavenly care,
and I am sure you played all day,
with your family way up there.
I missed you down on Earth,
but I hope one day to be,
a part of the Garden of Angels,
and in your company.

Angel of Light

Angel of Light, tenderly touch her brow.
Remove the pain that binds her now.
Gentle, peaceful passing into the rainbows beyond,
Where light and love meets joy and peace,
Rising with every brilliant dawn.
Release her spirit to the universe,
Set her Soul now free to fly.
Unshackle every earthbound debt,
And remove all tears she's cried.
Angel of Light, spread your wings
Of Grace and Love, unfurled smiles.
Keep me close to her heart as
She crosses heaven's incalculable miles.
Release her body etheric, and
Take her home at last,
Gently lay her in the arms of
All the loved ones already passed.
Angel of Light, with Mercy and Grace
Remove the pain from her beautiful face.
Open her eyes to the new horizon
Gently sweeping upon celestral shores.
I know she'll be waiting for me
When I fly through those heavenly doors.

Destiny has carved these hearts still, I kiss her beautiful lips.

Be Free

Grind it all away…
The sadness, the disease of malnutrition, the decay…
I want you to float on high like a feather off a bird
Allowing the calmer breezes to bring you to this world
Grind these cruel thoughts into bits and see the good
I would give you a place to stay if I could
If you would stay, if you would allow yourself to bloom
Instead of blinding yourself with self-hatred and gloom
I am so sick of you hating yourself because of me
I am so sick of wanting to be free
We are…take it all away
Listen, stop screaming in your head for me to stay
I am here—but your cruel necessities drive all away
Lift up your voids of anger, sadness, and deceit
Loosen up your sovereignties—and breathe!!!
I cannot help you all of the time
I cannot save you from the currents
But please…please don’t let the pain flourish
Let yourself free from the bondage of your caged sorrows
Allow yourself to fill up on warmth—allow yourself to swallow!
But upon the excruciating agony—still you wallow
Why do you choose to do this for yourself? 
Why have you given up? 
You know, what hurts the most?
That you accept your pain…your so-called pathetic ways
And drag me straight down with you…
Shall we swim together in the waste of time,
That you have so craftily established? 
I will rise to the surface without blemish
I will tell you once more—be free!!!
And if you only ignore—
All will not matter anymore

I am not staying to watch you fall
Pick yourself up if you care at all
But don’t bring me down like this
Don’t accept the negative wars 
Or like a war, fight them off, cut them off, grind them to dust
I will fight with you if I must…

But I will not accept defeat
Get up on your feet

Believe.

Angel

You found me
bleeding, broken, and alone
and told me I was okay.
Wrapped me in your warmth
protected me with your wings
and healed my wounds
the demon had given me before he had left me there
The demon who had taken everything
But you gave me your love
and my heart slowly turned back
from stone and ice to compassion and warmth
You showed me how to live again
and all the desolated roads and forgotten stories all disappeared and all the scars my sorrows left seemed to blend into my skin.
Even the memories faded like the darkness at the break of dawn
You caught me as I fell into the abyss and saved me from myself
From the dark nightmares, from the shadows, from myself
And gave me something to live for
You’re my angel, my saving grace
And as long as I am by your side I will never let go.

Above the clouds

 Atop  the mountains where thin clouds float
Covering the peaks in a misty veil
The eagle's eye takes careful notes
As above the clouds it sails

Above the trees where  a brisk wind blows
Whispering through the leaves to the cawing crows
Echoing over the hilltops as the wind stream flows
And above the clouds where sunbeams glow

Up on high in starry skies
Where clouds obscure the moon
A lone wolf howls a mournful  tune
As crickets yearn to croon

On peaceful nights when stars shine bright
And the sandman travels on moonbeams
It's then  it seems, we'll take slumber's flight 
As above the clouds we dream

Angel lullaby's


Dimonds are not beauty. Beauty is people and things unknown. Things unknown that swirl around in a young child's mind and happiness amounts to a flower crown made for a small girl with the soul of a faire. Happiness that comes from the pure joy of looking in your mothers deep brown eyes and getting warm fuzzies . Joy that spills out into a smile when a wise woman tells her that the little floating fuzzies in the air are baby angels and that when it thunders it's just there mom singing them an angel sized lullaby a lullaby that makes her big blue eyes sparkle....But the wind changes and the sparkling in her big blue eyes fade and the flower crown withers and dies and the baby angels turn into dust and unknown things still bring joy. But so do things that bring trouble and those big brown eyes sometimes betray her and the thunder is just thunder and baby Angels and days of simple joy vanish ...But if she waits just for the right moment the clowds will gather and the sparkle returns to her big blue eyes and the wounderful liquid leaks out of the sky! spinning and spinning her hair dripping. She squeezes the big blue eyes shut and suddenly the baby angels return To the sky and the Flower crown gets a long drink of water and blooms once again and and the angel lullaby returns to the air and rings in her ears and those deep brown eyes watch her spinning and remember why they fell in love with her and 
finally she is home !!

Miracle

I was in a panic my heart beating rapidly

At the thought of losing it all.

I looked around and what I found

Were angels starting to fall.

 

Warriors from up above

Sent to help the willing,                             

But what they had wasn’t enough;

to stop humanity from killing.

 

For they were corrupt and unjust

In what they have learned

They didn’t realize that all of their sinning;

Was going to get them burned.

 

 Here are all of the angels;

 Working hard to save

These people who just laugh at death

And the gift in which he gave.

 

There was an angel so beautiful,

One I couldn’t see- for there was

A bright white light

Surrounding him and me.

 

He kissed my temple and he whispered

Everything was going to be okay.

I felt the warmth of the message

That he tried to relay.

 

A peace washed over me as I realized;

 I had spoken to God,

I watched the dirty looks and heard the snickers

Of those who found it odd.

 

For in this age it is impossible,

To speak to the creator,

It must have been a demon in disguise

A great impersonator.

 

They were wrong

 I have never had such a great feeling,

Energy passed through me

 And healed the pain I’d been concealing.

 

I will always remember

The day that I had needed

A miracle from up above

My prayers had been heeded.

Handshakes with Angels

I flew one time
Over the going ons of this life 
I saw fate's plan
From my conception to my third ex wife
From the dumpster babies to a NorthWestern paradise 
From train traffic delays to buses blowing up in Saudi uh-rayb 
From sending your picture to med schools to 25 cent giving a family food 
From giving profiles an update to gettin profiled and court dates 
From same love and reverse racism 
To double X chromosome unnecessary circumcision 
From society's mutiny to wives being sold and muted on their knees 
From all the pastors receiving enough to breakeven 
and the poor that are rich in faith no matter circumstance nor season 

From rainbows leading you to gold to rainbows meaning the devil has bought your soul
From waterfalls to your teardrops
From catchin crooks to crooked cops 
Opening fire on perps to opening fire on purp
From losing your last dollar to finding your worth 
Over satiating our hunger to babies dying of thirst 
From oil and water 
To closed minds and open legs 
Old autopsies at a young age 
All that lynching but we can't hang
Inherited all your bad genes 
All these heirs but I can't breathe 
Bending the air so it won't fit in your lungs 
Authoritative action leaves you speechless because they'd prefer for 
me and you 
you and I 
to breathe less
But I ain't trying to handshake no angels yet
Not yet

as the lights go out

you said you would give me the
 pitch and valley of venus
  and I would give you
    all her
oestrual moons

suffering through water, crawling hard through august
  drawing with frenzied fort the
    alps and scatters of a 
mystifying faith
  in unfamiliar bodies, our bodies flesh and
    unfamiliar

pretend again against the fisher of men
  with grasping breaths, with ponderous sweat
    we dreams.  seed and soup of shifting
      protean odds
soured minds fettered to the rouse of agitating streams
  of what is true and yet truer still

time wasted or well spent
  end all the same
   to me
like nicked.  a quick cut
  bloody dust kicked up
    from the cut
the electric bump

you said you would give me the
  pitch and valleys of venus
    and I would give you
      her fiercest of moods
her most fiercest
  of moods

Grandpa

I stare at your face as I remember it so vividly. 

I remember every piece of hair 
You crafted to lay so perfectly in place

The tip of your nose that became slightly rosier with each year
 The way your eyes wrinkled when you smiled
Your hard belly against mine as you gave me a hug 

When you said "I love you kid" 
And the pricelessness of those words 
Spoken more frequently towards the end.    

I wish we had more time 
So I could show you who I have become
 You may be gone but your love lingers on 

In the hearts of not only your family 
But every person you touched
And welcomed as part of that family 

You showed me that love is deeper than the surface 
It is rooted over time
Solidified in the thick and maintained through the thin.

I close my eyes 
Trying to picture the beautiful place 
You have chosen you reside 

Sometimes I whisper to you,
Hoping you can hear me
Just to say I love you


I know I will have to wait patiently 
For the next chapter 
When we all will reside together

I'm Hell On Heels

It all happened in a flash. 
You came into my life, 
turned my world upside down,
then left me in the dark.
You put me through hell,
I fought to make it back up
to the surface of reality.
I had to survive on my own.
I had to fight the demons away.
I had to strive for life.
Now you're back,
asking for me to forgive you.
Ha!
I grew into a stronger woman,
since you did what you did, 
now I'm going to show you
what hell feels like, 
cause baby, well...
you're worthless,
you're a nobody to me,
you're a novelty painting 
in a run down dump.
You think that with your 
cute crooked smile you will
"win me over"
but not this time.
I have conquered
you're spell,
you're charm,
you're game.
Now I run this show
and well...
you're no longer good enough.
so farewell,
ta-ta for now,
hope you feel the pain you put me through.

This is me

I'm thinking in dangerously fast paced unrealistic riddles
My minds wandering causes the death of me
I'm living in a thousand lives
I'm flying, I'm painting the clouds on the skies

I can see your lies
I see through your disguise
Human
You better remain wise

I'm in this danger zone
Its all that i have ever known
The face of our creator is placed upon my throne
I am unknown
I have no home
Inside u will find nothing
Far away is where i have been thrown
A castaway, where all the real things go

Where glistening rays of gold light
shines upon my dark side
and angelic beings
Show me all of lives teachings

I do know
The things you do not show
The thoughts you have of hope,
The pain u feel from being alone

I am it all
I have heard your electrifying call 
I am an angel
and i will never let you fall.

I love you too

recently I skating on a photography website
where I stumbled upon a self-portrait
in which the girl had a white short skirt
written on the ass in that order
I love
my
boy
friend
and comments started to flow

- I'm jealous
- Lucky friends! Great Shot
- Is one of the perfect asses that I've seen here
- Your friend is very, very lucky!

etc.
and wow
how much they wanted to keep her ass in their arms ...
and what do you think
- I am single.
she replied.

this girl even made a poem from her ass
from those guys 
what to say
how many hundreds of emails received
that is love itself
or go to hell or
I love you
of course all this also in photos
wonder what the hell is wrong with people today
why they want to **** like that?

bored
I closed the browser
and I want you to know
in the end
anything that passes
only your smile
No.

While You Were Sleeping

While you were sleeping so peaceful 
An angel took you away
He said your life on earth 
Had reached its final day
The pain that you did suffer 
Will harm you never again
And though my heart does understand
My mind can’t comprehend

Each day I watched you suffer
Yet still you chose to pray 
Thanking God for grace and love
To live just one more day
How could a God ignore the plea
Of a soul he calls his own
Something I do not understand
For my flesh still wants you home

Today we return you to the ground
Your face I’ll see no more
I still do not understand 
But will not cry and moan
I know God’s will is perfect
And I am glad your pain is gone
While you were sleeping peaceful
An angel took you home

EMBERS OF TIME

                              The curtain is closing, the door shut.
                             Lights are on, bed is dressed in white. 
                                      Utensils keep on clanging. 
                              Sweat and blood are gently flowing. 
                            Tension, pain and countless breathing. 
                                There's no seconds to be wasted. 
                           The embers of time to save lives in hands. 
                           Life support generates to sustain their life. 
                             And the long hours of waiting are done. 
                       The door opens, people came out from the light. 
                                Successful momentum has arrived. 
                           Tears are softly coming out from the eyes. 
                                    An angel was sent from above, 
                              Is now cradling in the arms of his dad. 
                                 The embers of love from the heart. 
                        Is flaming like a hot lava rushing in the ground. 
                  The life from a newborn child, made two hearts ignite.

Elusive

     The muse
touches you at times 
     your words sing !
Most of the time 
she is in hiding 
   So, you put your pen to paper
  with poor results 
  But the music shall return 
  And yes, she will 
again 
   Inspires, takes you higher 
to litereary triumphs 
  Words that leap from the page 
  Soon enough
   old age 
 will come 
   The fire which once burned 
       Will become ashes 
The music has power 
    but not enough
to defy Father Time 
    or stop the Angel of Death 
   The dark angel who 
 eventually wins all battles

A Trip through Ireland

In the distance a figure walks,
resembling a shadow as he grows more remote.
He turns only once to view my perspective of him through my camera lens.
The streets are stones and the lane is narrow.

We are by a church, in which there are statues
to be deemed, cloaked in a subtle wide darkness, for the interior
with all its incense and ornaments, carpeted red and the walls vanilla,
is as uninviting as the retreating man.

My camera clicks.

Dreaming faraway drifting

The mountain is covered in a dense falling fog
gun barrel grey clouds shading out,  unto silver
changing outwards orange to soft peach
Gracing the sun setting sky warm thoughts  

 Runaway dream hums, within birds singing gently
 almost  a magic spell sings, in one background choir 
 Enchanting the breeze on a cold tune  
 blue blowing wind on a November 

Evening has broken soft brushing across the brow  
a  dream beauty touching, deep feelings holding hands
Silver treasure lining clouds, I want  
to bathe inside your crowning desires  

Oh you're the angel who takes me out, from darkness
dazzling me in light of your sun, shining smiles  bright  
Crying around the valley howling, a wolf sad  
sweet humming tunes, gentle soft, whispers to a dream 

I wrote this 12/12/9/9 ending last on the 12 note

Let the fate decide

Let the fate decide 
I write not knowing of what comes
Not realizing the facts
Am not ready for the pain that is on his way
On his way to let down many hopes
To injure many souls 
To stop the proud of one another
I am asking if God could give me a chance 
To prove that I am worth the victory 
To study more harder
To close the lights rarer 
To give the ones I love a hug 
To give them my pride, my tiredness 
My hope for another day to come
And I be the one 
My ears are hearing voices fighting 
For what is right or wrong 
I really wish 
If an angel could fall from the sky 
And remove my eternal pain 
And give me a life I could smile in 
Give me a name, to live with
Give me a tissue to wipe all my tears away 
To miss the love of my parents 
And they’re respect for one another
Would give me a reason to live each day with
To give me a reason to fight for 
If there was angel 
Who would do all this? 
Who would send God my Prayers? 
And send God my begs and hopes for forgiveness
I wish, wish simple word, hard to make 
 Hard to achieve,….
Will the angel send my prayers 
Send my begs 
Send my hopes of forgiveness
Give me the love, honor ,name ,and… the reason to fight , to live
This life that has no justice….

Braille

Adorned with momentus meaning ,
darkness can be a terrible and scary thing  -
For some- a time of nightmarish convening
Yet to others - divinely rich beauty abound

To me it is a story to read  one of
my favorite things - lying on the ground  
All the stars are braille  as I reach out to read touching and caressing
One falls and other takes its place 
the story is rewritten again and again and never dull

Some people on earth prophesied the stories to stones , 
some five thousand years ago ..ancient stories regarding our times  
Full of ugly, detestable crimes, so I do as I may, 
watching the night sky reading stories of dragons ,
creatures half man  and many other wonderful things  
My perfect world of armored braille-
I'll just keep on reading of ancient battles, songs of lovers
Adventures of the gods
And four leaf clovers.

The Olde Shoppe Bell

I hear the bell like ex-wives voices nagging
Hanging,beneath the olde shoppe door ringing
When someone enters through
They have and I do 
A swift little dance and a more ridiculous jig
To that stupid and silly sounding thing

Every time I hear it, it echoes in my head 
As if far fetched fantasies 
An ominous figure the tiny brass is introducing
In the black trench coat to appear instead
Along with hat that eclipses his face
There he'll be, standing 
Eyeing all from beyond his place

Patrons inside slow turn in sync trembling in fear
As if death were choosing its next victim "right here"
It wouldn't be long before I could no longer hold on
From hysterics and laughter outward and in directions forthwith 

Toward the harbinger announcments of cruel intentions 
As the next candidate bound on hell train's transportion
And beneath the door prodding sounds once more
That stupid bell again starts ringing
And I'd think to myself " surely no angel has gotten their wings"
So under my breath laughing, then jump heel clicking, dancing a more ridiculous jig

Medea's Ashes

The crowd is drawn like magnets 
Drawing flecks of finely splintered steel. 
They stand and stare 
At smoke-choked, charred remains- 
Magnificent Medea. 

Her ashes slowly blow like dust 
Upon Atlantic breezes 
Rushing over achromatic beaches 
Soon to rest on Adirondac majesty. 

Death is silent still like Medea's 
Ashes on the evening winds. 
And in the early dusk that follows dust 
One sooted shape is left; 
Like a child makes an angel in the snow. 

Bouquets of roses spread upon 
The ground around black-sooted angel - 
Aromatic, multicolored sweet bouquets, 
Giving vivid dignity to death in final pose. 

A tall thin man with thick white hair 
Stands straight and still 
Above the remnants of his queen; 
He once was hero and marine 
In distant wars before Medea 
Stole his soul and made it whole. 

The cattails cluster'd round 
Medea's marbled pond 
Are crying muted cries 
As they bend and bow to something 
Larger than their friend upon the wind. 

A single night-hawk flying by 
Ackowledges the cattail's cry 
As it dives above narcissi trumpets waving - 
Modulated bright and bulbous yellow 
In the twilight's dim and faded light.

Dreams Die

Lost in a dream of wonders and surprises. I walked hand and hand with my angel tonight. Hearing the whispers of your voice And the way it felt being held when times were rough. My dreams now shattered and torn apart. I am left broken hearted inside myself Feels like the clouds have departed and I fell. Spinning towards the ground with no safety net around. My angel has always been there but not tonight. Will my angel catch me before I hit the ground? Will my angel leave me alone? Why did our dream have to die? Do you see the tears I cry tonight?

My Angel on Earth

Born the end of Summer
         In the California sand
Where tumbleweeds 
              careen
Miles of desert sand
A heart to big 
             for Palmdale skies
Brighest green, 
                your Irish eyes
Enchanting smile like
pink roses on your face
          Captivating,  
in your sweet found grace

An Angel came from heaven
and landed in the sand.....

No one compares 
             to the heart of you
Or the purity 
               of your soul
The tragedies 
         that have touched you
Would have shred 
            most people whole

            Inner strength
       Your core like steel
             Unshakeable
       
            In sheer grit
            you walk tall
      Tender compassion
            bleeds for all

It flows from you
like a gentle river

          Still like a child
           you remain
       warm and giving
         Always smiling

~MY HERO~

Your astounding faith
        Your spirit of truth
               Your beauty shines 
                        Inside of you

You've saved me always
        (truest of true)
And from you came my life

You are my Angel on this Earth....

Your silver glow
           and golden smile
Shine inside of me
            Proud I am
I came from you
           and proud
I will always be...

With a delightful 
           sense of humor
and your sharp 
            and brilliant mind
You are the one 
              who lights me
with your light
         that always shined

If in my life, and path I take
I am half the woman you are
My dream in life will be fulfilled
you remain my lucky star

           I pray above
                     with pleading heart
           That I can hope to be
                       As good a mother 
            to my daughter
                         as you've always 
                   been to me

An Angel....

Born the end of summer
With the greenest Irish eyes
Desert sand,
your paradise
Heart to big for Palmdale skies.....


Dedicated to the most beautiful woman on earth
My Mother...An Angel

Where Is Heaven - A collaboration with Jack Blackman

(The sorrowful lover)
I was first to see her,
Her beauty was aglow.
I moved across the room,
approached her nice and slow,
and told her that her smile
was transcendent of Heaven.

I was Airst to know her,
So many years ago;
and she I loved so true.
How much you cannot know.
Then you came to take her -
To take away my heaven.   
 ....You took away my Heaven.

(The angel of death)
I have known her since birth.
I even watched her grow.
I am the Grim Reaper,
and my hand brings much woe!
Her death was predestined,
And thus I took your Heaven.

I pity you your loss -
Death is my job you know.
Your own time will soon come;
the time for you to go!
Until then keep hoping 
to find your love in Heaven.


Note: Jack Blackman was "The Sorrowful Lover" (he wrote the first two stanzas)
I was "The Angel of Death" (I wrote the last two stanza's)

This class

This class is driving me crazy
along with my friends who are
absolutely crazy!

I need to understand why I am 
feeling like this especially the 
teachers they are the hardest.

I love Mrs. Stelzer she is calm
caring and sweet, along with her
dog Jade who to teaches me to be
patient, and quiet to some people 
who show no leave.

This class is driving me crazy. I like 
Ms. Tabarez she is sweet, she gives 
us candy while we sleep. Now not all
of this is true, BUT may I tell you...

This class needs to be the best 
class of high school for me or else 
I'll know what had stressed me.

Cool Beauty

Hailstones falling from the sky 
blown by a cold icy cutting wind
bouncing off the ground
clouds black to grey shawl 
winter takes hold 

The ground takes shades of white 
snow capping the mountains peaks
First snowflake falls 
gently melting settling on one finger

Thoughts drifting away inside the soft touch
Petals caressing heart and soul singing 
a choir chanting pulling strings 
blowing warm breaths clouding steam 
frozen whisper of time
feelings flutter into your space

Dancing to loves tune 
weaving our silken soft emotions together
ribbons of light piercing a single teardrop
holds beautiful love in high esteem

I will take you my love higher
to where the heart darling 
will always and forever 
surrender to you without pain 
The snow queen smile, cracks ice

O' Sandy

As we lay beneath the moons glare
A simple look will never prepare
It seems quite
It seems peaceful
Without the light nothing appears displaced
Only that sight is a lie, not really a sight
The suns arrival comes with the truth
Now we can see what needs to be seen
It disguises as if it was a dump
Yet, it never was the place of any garbage
A day ago it was a living society set with a stage
The performance came her name was sandy
The audience took her act to heart
She took lives
She took memories
She tore us all apart
A scary performance, always to be remembered 
Now to fix up, the damage that was widespread

A New Beginning at Dusk

~A New Beginning at Dusk~

Two people walking along the ocean’s rising tide
Singing a lullaby to the sea gulls as they kiss the day good-bye
Two people learning who they are all over again
And all the while knowing that their dreams are starting to make sense
Two souls intertwined from the origins of the universe
Two souls that were created to never be apart
I am the pollen and you are the flower
You are the chime in the wind!
Here we go again with another fresh start
The era of mistakes is past us
On the road paved from heaven
A road of sweet morning dew
I taste a piece of your bread unleaven and new
We hold each other’s hands
I pull the chain near the light bulb
You command the stars to stay on bright 
As we cuddle beneath the moon
Is this the way paradise begins?
Is this the New Millennium?
I am almost ready for something new
Now let me go and finish my task
I have a difficult job to do
I have to finish this life on a high note
Before I can open a new book
Allow me to make amends with all the crooked roads of my past
I can’t wave a magic wand and everything disappears
I have to go by the book
The Heavenly Book
I cannot skip a chapter to get to the point in time where I get you!

Angels Atop the Apple Blossom Trees

Angels flying around the the tops of apple blossom trees
Trying to soak up the aroma
Dancing on air currents to get a quick sniff in the breeze
All the while playing their harps and fiddles

How majestic is their flying?
How majestic is their twirling?

For each and every angel that flies above the orchard
Becomes intoxicated with the scent of heaven
There is no greater scent on all the earth 
That represents the earth’s gardens like the apple blossom tree
So the next time you are out and about walking 
And you see the apple blossoms in fullest bloom
Just close your eyes and you’ll be dreaming that a dozen angels are staring at 
you.... because most likely... THEY ARE!

angel landing

Rising waves 
blue circling 
your air 
breathing out 
speechless fading 
breath lost 
love whispers 

Silently to 
ones soul 
what a dream 
to awake beside 
love rises inside 
golden sunshine 
touching in 
soft morning sheen 

Glimmering rainbows 
magically embrace 
free flowing feelings 
ribbons in satin 
flowing flutters 
butterflies upon air 
caressing wings 
of emotions 

Floating gently 
softly flying 
with each 
heart beat 
bubbles popping 
a party dancing 
in the spirit 
of love 

Deep gentle 
landing with wings 
softly an angel 
lands upon 
the deepest waves 
kiss of a soul 
washing lips 
crash bursting 
upon this heart 

Singing in 
warm breakers 
of love 
ebbing all 
around you wow 
in this ocean 
gentle waves
all over 
warm on 
you my dream

sing me a lullaby

Sing me a soft lullaby
to hush away my fears
Pull your arms around me
Wipe away my salty tears
Sing to me of muddy shoes
And someone asking for a dime
Tell me who rips your heart out
And handles it with care
Sing to me of angels and a whisper of a prayer
sing to me a lullaby
That ill sing my unborn child
Hold me tight and brush my hair
Away to see my smile
Sing me into slumber
Where happiness exists 
Sing me a soft lullaby
And ill finally get some rest

In the Arms of Peace-abiding Angels

I don’t know what I know
I fly like an eagle – just go with the flow!
I don’t know what I know
I don’t know what you’re thinking about 
But I can tell you’re puzzled in your own mind
Maybe I can find x2 
Peace in mind 
For you and I to cherish forever
Stop being so introverted!
Be converted
To bravery and put your doubts to bed

It’s strange really
I don’t know what I know seriously 
Storms are brewing in you as clouds lift you higher than where I am
The waves are crash beneath us
But, you’ll be safe and sound
In His hands, you’ll find relief and happiness
It’s quite hard to adjust to change
I don’t know your mind – 
I wish I can read your mind sometimes
It’s about time we rearrange
And fall into the arms of peace-abiding angels

Let’s go…let it go…
Let’s go…let it go…
Let’s embrace
The arms of peace-abiding angels tonight
Tonight, we’ll seek divine flight
We will make it in no time
Let yourself dance 
To the rhythm of my heart
Let’s go with the flow of the midnight breeze
Promise me you won’t tear this heart apart
You’re not alone, the sunrays will melt away the freezing anxiety 
And put your mind and heart at ease
The peace-abiding angels created the playful sunrays 
With God’s helping hand
You’re the butterflies that admire my presence
I know I might sound corny or dense!
I throw my hands sky-high
Happy-go-lucky parrots pass us by 
I wish I were them right now

I scream gallantly: 
“TAKE AWAY THE PAIN,
DRIPPING LIKE ACID RAIN!”
Lightning flashes and a storm tries to suck us in
But, we’re safe and sound
 In the arms of the peace-abiding angels
We’re above the ground
Overflowing with heavenly miracles
Grant us peace in mind…
Before we become blind
Just like the rest of the inhabitants in the World of Woe
I don’t know my selfish deeds
No more doubting or sinning, plant seeds
Of faith and erase your uncertainty
Fall into the arms of the peace-abiding angels
Spread your wings and trace ecstasy 

I don’t know you anymore! 
How come you’re the only one that I adore? 
Let the angels take us to cloud seven
Don’t you know that being with you is like rejoicing in heaven?

It’s funny that I noticed you in the near future
You’re caught in the whirling fantasies
I can see you, far off in the distance…is there any hope to nurture? 
You’re as puny as an ant 
It’s weird to admit, but I kissed the wicked lips of the abyss
Who said I can’t?

I don’t know my selfish deeds
No more doubting or sinning, plant seeds
Of faith and erase your uncertainty
Fall into the arms of the peace-abiding angels
Spread your wings and trace ecstasy 

I don’t know what I know
But, I know for certain that you’re walking on your own in victory
I don’t know what I know…
I don’t understand what I see…
Do I witness peace? Confusion? Catastrophe? 

I don’t know my selfish deeds
No more doubting or sinning, plant seeds
Of faith and erase your uncertainty
Fall into the arms of the peace-abiding angels
Spread your wings and trace ecstasy 

I don’t know your motives or intentions, but your purpose is shown, you see
In my eyes, they’re wicked and free
Stop being so insecure!
Be careful! Make sure
To say your little prayers tonight – it would act as a cure
To this dirty heart of mine, basking in sinful lust – it’s so impure

Dance freely…let go gaily
Dance freely… be filled with glee 
Let’s embrace
The arms of peace-abiding angels tonight
Tonight, we’ll seek divine flight
We are caught up in a trance
Do me a favor and depart
From the morbid nightfall, 
Hunting down our delightful light and innocence 
To the rhythm of my heart
Let’s go with the flow and ride on the back of a happy Hippogriff 
Promise me you won’t look down or behind you!
You’re not alone, the sunrays will melt away the freezing anxiety 
And put your mind and heart at ease
Accept your gifts and talents and 
Jump with joy!
You and I will jump into the arms of the peace-abiding angels
The peace-abiding angels created the playful sunrays 
With God’s helping hand
I throw my hands sky-high
Happy-go-lucky parrots pass us by 
Wave goodbye to our past and let’s fulfill our future as it gives us a natural high
It’ll boost us high and we’ll cry
Happy tears and we won’t know why!

I don’t know if we’re meant for each other
No more doubting or wasting time, plant seeds
Of faith and gain assurance
Fall into the arms of the peace-abiding angels
Go to them for any problem and they’ll help us in an instance!
Spread your wings in confidence and embrace ecstasy with me!

Kiss the doubt and darkness farewell
You’ll find another companion…oh well x2
Be converted
To bravery and put your doubts to bed
Soon enough, you’ll find your true love this splendid night
I know 100% that you’ll survive this dangerous plight
With the peace-abiding angels and I by your side
For the meantime, don’t cower away and hide – 
Fight the Good Fight!

Where Angels Tread

The altar showed anomaly,
an orb of light, 
a foil for small realities 
that I could easily forget 
but for that twilight cast, 
to things I touch or dream--
that spirit song sequestered
where I cannot go.
 
Thoughts of relevance
...of insight
...of perceptions being reconciled
with the mundane
then smiling at myself:
all those are imprints on the mind
vibrating in the here and now
and possibly across the isthmus
in the place where peace prevails.

Orbs are discreet and diffident,
and when you chase them down,
they're gone.  No peace remains
this side of consciousness,
yet on the journey of the open heart
an awe ineffable, a resolution that a dream
would trust and understand.
                 
Or a dream within a dream?
Reality is ill defined.  Yours, mine...
until the breath is gone
and consciousness fights on
to redefine the light.
And you and I will take awareness
to the end of day--and bless it,
certain that the night descends
to claim its own dark benefice 
and decorous ecstacy.
                     ~

Mio Angelo

Your eyes shine and spakle and thy withered eyes do wake.
Wonder, page me up from the heavens unto you and I sit in waiting for thee.
Come onto me my angel.
Even though I do not deserve what you have to give.
Even though do I pale in comparitive view.

Oh, how do you think so highly,
Want so badly..
Something so desolate and broken?
Wonder, mend thy heart when all was shattered.
Even though I need it now and could not live without.
Even though what is now my heart would surely stop.

The Angel take my hand in the wind.
Under his breath he does say "You will be saved"
Wonder, my angel never lies for truth be told.
Even though I only get by in the threshhold of thee's words.
Even though rarely I demine his thoughts and never question his genuineness.

Thriving under the wings of the angel, my gaze flickers once,
To thy truimphant face of my hero.
Wonder, there it stays and shall remain immobile and frozen.
Even though I so stubbornly accustome myself to self preservation.
Even though it was once seemingly impossible to carry on.

Love emerge at first cautious and then in vain, finally absolute, timid nevermore.
Birth of new hope when was once dead, then numb.
Wonder, encase thee with thy adoring company.
Even though I understand what this means.
Even though the youth in us is overbearing, ignorance is not as blissfully blind as is feeling.

At the Pawnshop

I walk in, It almost feels cold
Letting go to all the unknown
That ring you got me a promise we didn’t keep
 a frame of  a picture of us
You didn’t stay out long enough for me to need
The key to the house
That we couldn’t afford to love
And here are my mom tears that I couldn’t afford to give up 
Then last are the broken promise that were made to keep
I lost a friend, a dad, a house, and maybe me
But you can have it all whatever you need
I’m looking for something that was taken from us
Please pawnshop I’m begging it’s a must
He is ours for us to keep…tell God he belongs to me
He’s too young to be up there
Please …just tell me if you find him anywhere 


In dedication of ended relationship, a father who is always in jail, a family home we lost and lastly my 17-year cousin who was take from us to soon

A Secret Not Shared

Living in an endless nightmare
Where the flowers never bloom
Where the sun doesn't shine
And the river's never flow

As life changes from day to day
And their eyes and grins are all we find
Not caring about our destiny or our fate
Why do we feel the way we do

To learn, to explore, to understand the world 
Is it right to feel so blue
To feel like you have no purpose in life 
To feel like you've been violated inside-out

Dreaming of far off places to where the birds fly free
And all our greatest dreams become more than real
As the blue bird shed's it's happiness
To all of us who are so blind

Yet what is happiness to those who mourn
Or those who weep over what's been done
Each so different, yet each the same
Created equal for a purpose, to love one another

The fight between life and death is hard to see
But the answer is not ours to hold
We must each find our path's in life
Where we each make mistakes that change our ways

As the rain pours down to bring new life
A single breath is but a whisper
And a shallow heartbeat that is so clear
Our minds dance, dance in the dead of night

While the monster so true gets three to five
The innocence of a young girl is so blind
Where from day in and day out she is left with life
No remorse for this lonesome dove while she flies overhead

Like the Angel she is she wishes it to end
For them to help, yet leave her alone 
For them to see how hurt she feels
Like being left alone by the stump of a tree

As an Angel may spread it's wings
To reveal its masked identity
We are lost in our words from our hearts
Like the sun that shines so bright

Like the secrets of an innocent soul
All is lost in the abyss of nothingness
Where fire reins free as if like a bird
But with no feeling like the devil himself

As a lost soul may find a way to far beyond 
It carries with it a message of hope, peace and love
For until next time we shall have to wait
For the secret to life, death and beyond even that.

I See Your Halo

There is an ethereal feel to your touch
A celestial aura that surrounds you
Heavenly splendor in your presence
The dance of the stars is in your eyes
I can see your halo
You are not of this world

When you hold me
And caress me
When you make love to me
I close my eyes
Each wave of pleasure propels me
It carries me past the constellations
I see them burst on my sight
And the music of the singing stars
That they record down on earth
The oscillations of the Bella Pulsar
Are merely distant echoes 
Of the rhythm of our love making
Sometimes thundering
Sometimes whispering
Each oscillation of pleasure
A burst of sound
Celestial music
I float in space
Not bound
By anything
The universe carries me
In your arms

I see your halo
And I am safe
For you will never hurt me
You will be gone in the morning
And yet you are with me
Like a guarding angel
I feel your presence
Everywhere I go
Your smile
Is in the sun rays on my skin
Your caress is the fingers of the
Wind running through my hair
Your whisper
Is in the sounds of nature
I FEEL you
Coursing through my body


I see your halo
At night
When you cannot be with me
I see your light in the moon
The stars magically align before my eyes
and I read your messages of love
Notes
Not of this world
Then you appear
And the entire universe sings
And your halo
Lights the dark room of my life
Then our bodies are one
And your halo is no longer your crown
But in expands and lowers itself  
Down the length of our bodies
Enveloping our nakedness
In a glorious light
The light of Eden
And I am lost to this world

I see your halo
I see what no one else sees
I see through your disguise
And I know you’re an angel
An angel in love with a
Simple child of this world
A Woman...
An Earthling

I see your halo
And I am blessed.

Eileen Manassian Ghali

Inspired by Beyonce's song...Halo. One of 
my favorites, especially the line that 
reads..."I'm addicted to your light!"

Angel in Disguise

As murky clouds filled the celestial skies,
I saw an angel descending in disguise.
She smiled at me so stunningly, my conscious mind flee.
Oh, she is a beauty so rare for the world to see.
 
She gazed upon me; she had me drowned in her tiger-like eyes.
Her smile so ravishing, her hair like golden silk; worthy to idolize.
She talked with the voice of a mellow trombone, and sang like a violin.
Words like a choir singing or that of birds chirping,
Came from her sweet tender lips like cherries blooming.
 
And at the break of dusk, she is like the beautiful sunset,
With the ravishing smile and sweet tender lips.
Her skin glows like the moon at night and her eyes glimmers so bright.
She is the empress of my heart, so enchanting a beauty to withhold.
 
She is indeed an angel in disguise- beneath the serene earth,
Or high above the majestic skies.
She is blessed with tranquility, an angelic star-
She brings me joy and romance even when she is afar.

Deep Space Christmas

                 Deep Space Christmas

God is busy this time of year attending to the billions
People’s needs, guiding reindeer, assisting Santa, counting souls
Helping with the naughty/nice boys and girls 
Even Craigslist needs some tweaking here and there
And other things too numerous to know or mention here

God is the great Creator out there at all times
At Christmas He moves faster than the speed of light
He has to keep up with popular demands 

Stars and universes don’t create themselves you know
He rides great rivers of dark matter like a magic carpet
That move along ribbons of space and time

Cosmic phenomena built on great speeds increasing every second
Millions of parsecs wide and longer than known universes
They curve through cosmic landscapes and glide to the beyond

God looks out at the great black void
And with legions of pretty angels by His side
The wondrous design begins again  

Everyone knows that thousands of angels can dance on the head of a pin
It is common knowledge that each celestial creature has that gift
They carry within their deep deep pockets, (just below the wings)
Thousands of other angels dancing on their own individual pins

But did you know these same tiny angels grow?
They expand larger than most universes
With multi-color baskets by their side 

God directs them to toss assorted planets
From blue baskets into the great unknown
Over there to be precise, to the right and upward
And somewhat just beyond that spot

The yellow baskets have suns and quasars with special protective shields
To shield the angels from wing singes and radiation fields
They throw thousands at a time by pure design
And since suns are too hot to handle, they throw them fast and throw a lot

Black baskets hold black holes, dark matter and a scattering of exotic things
God pulls them out real slow due to weight considerations and mysteries

Orange baskets hold more void but more about that later
We don’t want to distract you from the Creator

Back at Earth He takes his favorite creation by the hands
Men and women die all the time
He looks at each and every one of them with His bright kind eyes 
At that moment they are the only thing in His universe

Don’t cry.  You are not applying for a job
He holds them as his own and welcomes them home 
So grab a basket from an angel and let’s get back to work
Universes don’t build themselves you know

Sometimes Angels lay with Demons

I felt myself crumble inside your grasp,
your storm shook me about,
and everything I was f

                                         into you.
I could see my demons burning in your eyes.
When we came,
it was a revelation. 
I laid there,
gasping
              subdued by the brilliance,
tracing constellations on the arc
of your warmth.
I knew I had to be 
a better man from then on.
I knew you were here
to save me.

WILL NEVER WALK ALONE-bluegrass

VERSE ONE:
Glory to the highest,the angel choir sings with glee.
For the King of Kings has saved my soul, he has set me free.
I have overcome the battle and I will join the jubilee.
For the mighty King of Glory,Died on the cross, for you and me.

CHORUS:
Come join the angel choir, sing with jubilee.
Come raise your hands and praise the Father.
He died on the cross for you and me.
We will join the choir together. up in heaven we will sing.
We will stand by the angels and sing hallehujah over there.
For on the cross it was our sin ,he took upon himself to bare.

VERSE:
Glory in the highest, sing infront of the Savior's throne.
Gather with the glorious angelband,Jesus took our sins for his own.
Up in heaven a mansion is waiting, for us to call our home.
All we have to do is claim him and our soul will never walk alone.

Black Veils and Mascara Stains

I heard an angel speak last night and he said “write”,
“Write of the anguish and pain,
The desolation, and isolation.
May the ink fall like blood,
Spill over the pages,
Making permanent marks,
Never to regain its flawless form again”

I walk down the foot-worn trail,
Bare feet turned black by the earth underneath them.
Here comes that feeling,
The feeling of death.
Creeping up on me, suffocating any lingering hope.
Looking up, a vulture cries,
Like echoes coming from my insides.

I have arrived at my destination,
Black dresses and black umbrellas,
Lined up in lines between the rows of resting places,
Single-file reminders of those bereft of life.
I remain inconspicuous, 
Hidden from the grim party's black veils and mascara stains.
Don't fret, my friend, there's hope for me yet.

She comes in to my view,
Alluring as ever, breathtakingly pulchritudinous.
Touching the cool granite wing, feeling such imperfection,
Takes my breath away.
I pray to my angel,
I pray for them to listen to my story...
And then my angel spoke to me and he said “write”.

Diary of a Prophet

Words were written in backward mode 
Mirrors could not speak his language mode
He spoke in metaphors 
He spoke in mathematics his words calculated days 
Days that will rain blood
Skies turning bloody dark

Breathing better in the dark with no good lucks
He explained dreams but his pages got fooled 
Stupid diary was never even full 
Though ruined 
The prophet was labelled an idiot speaking idioms
Melting aluminium messages like an idiot
In stadiums he melted his words 

He spoke
We keep breathing but we give birth to enemies
He spoke remedies 
Romanticized remedies 
The message went viral faster than the speed of virus
He fell in love with the Julianas who sucked your brains out your pockets 

Rockets 
Call them rock stars 
They rock minds with their hip hop choices 
While their hips are popped on the other side
He spoke idioms
He got recycled living next to a bin.
The media spoke he got killed by the beans
Have been made mcess freeze 
Please speak in the breeze 
Selling their souls to booze

Before you hook up 
Just look up and be like the crocks
The prophet spoke in idioms 
Since birth his mother spoke one language tool 
Grow and fetch us food 
In different languages he got in the mood
Like tailor made lyrics the prophet got screwed 
The media spoke he got killed by the beans 
Have been made mcess freeze

Please just breathe one singular sentence
If you know the prophet 
Who spoke
Gibberish
Who spoke 
Who made you eat from his palm 
Without digging your pockets
 Scream out loud and raise the rocket
The family of maize meal hunters 

Sometimes mixed with Rastafarian movements
Let's keep on writing  
Like rastas let's keep writing explosive tones
When they keep flipping paintings 
Selling iconic roles
Papers flow in music videos 
Kids get robbed their future
We get popped for speaking the truth

The prophet wrote 
Spoke like a pro
He wrote and got popped
Like a pro
Prophesying danger heavier than suicide notes

I wish I was an A4 paper
The diary spoke

Love Makes A Man Do Crazy Things

An angel falls in rain, on slippery rock
Wings matted down by the on pour
A battle to the highest peak, nature the only competitor
A gray gown, clinging to pale skin
Edged ruthlessly by dirt, muddy stains on white
Unforgiving thunder rolls off the mountain
"I'm sorry lord"
Whispers on the wind call quietly
Through the dark, brooding clouds, white light drifts
Sliding silently in and out of vision, like a sacred dance
She almost looses her footing as thunder shakes the rock
Rubble starts to fall and she covers her head
Giant wings come down, and cover the angel
White light surrounding her in an orb
"It's all right"
The angel whispers in her ear
"I'm here"
His arms wrap around her, shielding her from the rain
The sky doesn't clear, but he'll play the game
Darting past the lighting he carries her in his arms
through the gates of heaven, past all its guards
he knelt before his father, and begged and prayed
"Dear Heavenly Father, please let her stay..."
With tears in both their eyes, he cradled her in his arms
she clung to him, her head on his shoulder
the lord looked at them compassion in his eyes
"Go my son, take her and fly"
He looked up at God, love in his eyes
Gathered her in his arms, and away they did fly

Light as a Feather

Dear beloved,
I wish to see you again some time and watch you gaily soar
Dear beloved,
I wish to see you fly once more
Dear beloved,
I want to hear your voice before dusk 
I crave for your melody to ring in my ears.... You are as precious as the sunset's horizon
You're as peaceful as a snow-white dove beyond my reach...go on...go on...
Keep on flying until the arrival of the dawn...
Dear beloved,
Weep till your eyes refuse to shed another fretful tear
Have no fear
Dear beloved....your touch is like velvet rubbing against my back
But i lack your beauty... I lack your tranquility 
And i hope to see you succeed one day...
Your radiance embraces my body...but i want you to get rid of my dismay
One day...your spirit will float above the ground
Your blessed spirit...will be as light as a feather... Why do you still feel so ashamed and bound?
Dear beloved,
I wish you a sunshining day along with perpetual delight 
Dear beloved,
I wish to keep a smile on your face...i wish i could see you beam bright like a dandilion, joyfully waiting patiently for summer's endless ecstasy 

Dear beloved,
I wish to abide by your side
Till the day my demise meets my lips
Despite the tribulations we must face
But, keep your own pace
And preserve your beautiful grace
Dear beloved,
I wish to be in your heart forever
Till the day i have to let go....and gove in to the grave
Float like an angelic feather
I treasure your efflorescence and your feather-like, jubilant spirits

You're as light as a feather
Dear beloved,
our love will restore relishing serenity forever...
And ever
Dear beloved,
You are the gold nugget to my eye
Im hoping you won't pass me by...
Goodbye...love
Goodbye....
Take wing, 
Dear beloved dove

Kissing An Angel-collaboration with Tim Smith-

You've sanded down the edges of my broken heart.
No longer do they pierce me.
You've stopped me from falling apart.
Like shattered glass I was a cracked reflection
Of past loves that only could do wrong.
You've entered my life just in time to save me from the past.

An angel with healing wing you have caressed me
And carried me into a better place.
Your strong arms wrapped around me.
The passion in your kiss
Oh to be kissing an angel...
I surrender myself to you heaven.

The White Angel

Speak not to me of Edelweiss,
Come share this scene;
Cast jealous eyes towards Lucerne,
For by it’s banks, in verdant calm,
There reigns the White Angel supreme.

Mis-stepping tourists, hounds unleashed,
The rudest climes;
She only bends towards the east;
And when she’s plucked, unreadily;
Soon, phoenix-like anew she shines.

For those who pass but see her still,
Do ken her worth;
Unchallenged purity pervades;
For as she sleeps through daylight hours;
Displays her brilliance on earth.

As Night descends the Angel wakes;
Now magic shows!
Her dark interior unfolds;
She fades into Night’s majesty;
Swayed only by his rhythmic prose.

One whispers at her origins -
A gypsy's fate.
I only know that since I glanced;
Medusa bound, my lifetime’s spent,
Fixated in her mystic wake.

Heavens Angel

My mind is full as a dictionary,
I can't stop day dreaming about her,
Her smile is like an injection of Heaven, 
Making the dark cloudy moods lighten up, 
Her atmosphere is like a phenomenon, 
Destroying all unchanging emotions, 
Into lustful explosions.
Her smell releases an irresistible scent, 
Creating colourful and poisonous feelings, 
Making the feelings of our mind neglect the feelings of our heart.
A whisper from her delicate voice,
Deafening all sounds around me. 
A touch from her hand, Heals all mental pain.
She's an Angel from Heaven.

First Letter to First Love

Daughter of God and angel of life
blossoming rose in toils and strife—
Ethereal beauty, a dream of the kings
whose laughter the sweetness of innocence brings
A few words of token, my angel of light
A moment with thee, a future as bright
I love thee as much as the winds ever blew,
And oceans and mountains and man ever knew.
To thee is my love through the love of my Lord,
For my heart is open,
Thou plucked the chord.

What once was

Inside, so warm and loved cherished from day one joy filled the heart and spilled over a cup overflowed Every moment was happiness all new experiences all new delights even new pains every bit was a level of adoration But everything could go wrong and that it did once where there was love and excitement was now pain and fear crimson was the color and loss was it's game There was no stopping it and no sign of warning it came rapidly quick as a thought and more terrifying than a monster with eyes glowing red skin of darkness razors for teeth smiling at it's prey Tears fall with them making a river of suffering so close to death but not dying a tiny soul was taken away from inside to never exist again Now this vessel is barren as a tundra with no warmth no rejoice only agony and longing Memories never to be made emotions never to be felt only the bitter taste of what once was my little angel

Engulfed By The Tide

I lock up my Jeep and start down ---
          The narrow pathway ---
---That meanders down the edge of the cliff ---
The view of the Ocean from this trail ---
               Is priceless 
This truly is one of my favorite places on Earth ---
Every chance I get I try to make it back here ---
And think of the time we spent together ---
                     So long ago
        --- When life was still exciting ---
We were young and the world was new ---
               And this spot was magic ---
                     --- To us ---
Barely even a spot to pull off the road ---
We had to check it out ---
The trail was rather rough ---
          If it could even be called a trail ---
But we both knew in our hearts ---
                  The risk would be worth it ---
I’ll never forget how amazed we were ---
                 When we reached the bottom ---
Our own private cove ---
         Cut in half by the jagged rocks ---
Connected by a cave ---
        I’ll never forget the love we shared ---
                   --- That day ---
The peace we felt that night ---
      The moon seemed as large ---
                As a silver dollar ---
Setting on the end of our nose ---
The reflection off the Sea ---
The warmth of the bon-fire ---
The sudden awakening ---
                   To the rising tide ---
How we scurried to get out of here ---
And barely did ---
Not long after that ---
         The tides of life ---
                   Took you away ---
---Into the valley of death ---
And I became so empty inside ---
God I loved you so much ---
And now here I am again ---
With another Bouquet of Roses ---
            --- That I shall offer to the tide ---
I want you to know ---
           I have found peace ---
                      I have found love ---
You and her are so much alike ---
You were my first love ---
         And she is my last ---
Sometimes I can see ---
        ---You ---
With-in the confines of her heart ---
                 And I almost feel ashamed ---
But she is so much like you ---
That to her it is an honor ---
I’ll always love you – you know that
 ---You are my angel in the wind ---
But she is forever ---
          --- The angel in my heart ---
As I stop at the top of the Cliff ---
                       I look back ---
And watch the roses ---
               Become 
   --- Engulfed by the tide ---

My Angel

I can't see you but I feel your presence with me always                                                     
In my lonely world, you help me out                                                                                 
You give me peace in life                                                                                                 
I'm looking for your face everywhere, trying to figure you out                                             
But I don't see you in anyone                                                                                           
I call out to you in my dreams                                                                                          
I see you there, walking beside me, holding my hand                                                         
I'm reminded that I'll always be alright                                                                             
I trust that you'll be there with me                                                                                   
In nights of despair and coldness, when friends turn strangers                                            
When loved ones cease to exist                                                                                        
You'll still walk beside me.

All Truth, No Lies

Sweetheart, you are the good when evil is around
You are my motivation when I am in doubt
You are my warmth during the long, cold winters
You are the dream that I’ve always wanted to come true
You are the roots and I am the tree
Together, we can make our relationship grow stronger
Even through all our troubles, you are still here to stay
Beauty passes by, but you still kept coming
All I can say is, you are a divine human being
I could never dare to replace you
For you are heaven to me

Dead Girl

Whose voice is that i think i know
Her voice is soft like the soft winds blow.
She skips with glee as she grows near.
Her skin is pale, as white as snow.

My dog beside me, finds it queer
To see her now after a year
Between two trees down by the lake.
The time she died was just last year.

My dog beside me starts to shake
To see this trick is a mistake
The tears that fall as i start to weep
Of deepest sorrows, my heart it aches

The feeling of grief it cuts me deep
But she will stay in my heart to keep
And as i cried i fell asleep
And as i cried I fell asleep

my heavenly angel

flashing inside
lights up green
golden shades 
of blossoms
flowering under
this one spell
enchanting words
sweet beautiful rose

petals touch
casting kisses 
magically dances
with the shadows 
of light kisses
silvery glitter
sparkles inside
exploding beautiful

blasting fountains 
pearl drops
of treasured joy
inside happiness
falling stars 
winking trail 
under a smiling moon
rocking side 
to side 
spellbound in
this universe 
inside the eyes

wishing golden honey
sweetheart of love 
beyond all kisses
dancing within 
silk ribbons
dripping blood
sweet rose
i desire

nibbling gently
softly feeling embrace 
tenderly come together 
warm emotions kiss
 the sweetest heart
of a dream
baby its you

Eye of the Beholder

An angel flutters down,
Wings tucked in gentle
Folding her wings round me.
Encasing a tender rose
Battered broken flame
Smoldering within ice
Blackened icy heart
She lies beside me
Serene and tranquil
She sighs, I sigh,
Her pain,
My pain resonating.

Downy pearl white feathers
Melt and fade as she weeps
Each tear of blood
Rose crumbling sheds
Fading into the wind
Her love rejuvenating slowly
Filling cracks half mended
Corrupting heavens light
Slowly scorning scorching 
Wings of mercy corrupted
Saphirre tears burning my soul
She sighs, I sigh
Her pain, my pain resonating.

Her voice a thousand bells
Healing broken being with me
Caged we are now
Black heart perfume
Lightly misted on both
Lust rage desire
Dancing mind to mind
Her spirit imprisoned
Within my hell
She sighs, I sigh
My pain, her pain resonating
Silent screams and pleas

Onyx wings entwined
Pulling in the world
One savior light
Extinguished saving rose
Deep within hells confines
Between lies and getting high
The message lost...
When the messenger was dismissed.
She sighs, I sigh
My pain, her pain resonating
Visions you'll see
Hidden behind Rose's eyes.

What if GOD was one of us

That old age question, what does GOD look like?

What if you have already met? . . You might have seen him today?

Did you look closely at that stranger that needed help when you just walked on by?
Remember that charity worker that asked for a minute of your time?

Maybe we dont get to see GOD in his true form yet, but that dosnt mean we doont see him in this life. 

Don't be so quick to walk by . .
Dont be so quick dismiss that situation were you could have helped . . 

GOD sees everything and sometimes he's right there testing you . . Dont give up on the world just yet

God's Life lesson (Holy War)

God's life lesson
found in his reflection
that he created in his image
was to learn never to discard or disregard the importance
or love he had for any of his creation
but to improve on them in every way
the meaning of life
love
fate
time
destiny
mankind
and life itself

He did this to surprise himself
and enjoy humbling himself for his creations
a planet and a heaven that does so for him

Living an everlasting life
where that he was the first to live
and the last to die
This lesson had to be learned prior to allowing his creations
to be by his side in eternal life

The meaning of life
and the angel of death
helped him learn what he needed to discover
to become flawless at this

The meaning of life
surrendered to a task of living a lie
becoming a false prophet whom would eventually sort this out
ask god for forgiveness
for being carried away in his selfrighteous lies and denial
of being loved by his creator
being a non believer of his maker
who had created something god placed above himself
god chose to forget himself
so this life lesson would be easier for him to realise

Thus god was inevitably going to be succesful
in this demonstation of forgiveness upon his creations and himself
to understand his new awareness
of a plan that he had for himself
to achieve a higher experience of eternal love

The meaning of life living a lie
to keep the everyone in blissful ignorance
of god's temporary weakness
and that was when the angel of death took part in helping god learn
by making the meaning of life's lie an unpleasant experience for everyone

The meaning of life then humbled himself
to the realisation
by being recognised as a team player a part of god's divine plan
by this truth recognised he would be healed
and the fact of who he did it for
god would know it was his brother's turn
to be released from the chains
of taking upon the metaphor or personification of murder
whom life itself was metaphorically married to

god's life lesson to learn from himself
his love and his creations to achieve the biggest miracle of love
one that would be never ending just continually improved on
as suggested by father time

hello sunshine

in this dream
to write beautiful
is to one 
who shines
brightest 
in the soul

standing on 
the ground
no more 
than earth
having two suns
a marriage
of light 
with darkness

a dark spirit 
creeps in shadows
black dancing 
with the light 
blood food
pumping love
paints color
each beat 
drum rolls

happiness forever
is with you
my shadow
bringing in
the light

when i look
upon you darling
as my sun
in your 
warm desire
floating emotions wings 
golden feelings

sparkle around
circle haloing
my sun shining
dearest angel
for you darling 
queen of 
my heart 

i bow 
when i look
into those eyes
shine inner beauty
a stunning soul
that dazzles
the most precious

When i hit, it felt like everybone in my wings had shattered. I had fallen. and It hurt so bad. but it was worth it.

Angel Dust

Sparkling silver angel dust
is left behind upon their 
visitations. The angels are not 
marking her territory, it's just 
that they are so delicate the 
dust falls easily from their 
wings and left behind.

Perhaps the sparkling silver bits 
have mystical powers. Perhaps we
should set them on a veil in an
altar guiding our prayers to them. 

Angel have a degrees of power 
which lies wholly secret with the 
gods. Yet, when you find a bit
of sparkling sliver dust, rest 
assured, the angels are at play
in your life.

Its just a dream

                   It's just a dream, right? 
I had a dream
Or, at least I think it’s a dream
A dream about a man
I don’t know who or what
But I know it’s a man
He had curly ginger hair
A mask that covered his face
He was holding a butcher knife
Wearing a black hoodie, black pants, and black shoes
He looks evil
Or, maybe, he is evil
No one good would look something like that
And holding a butcher knife
Yes, he’s evil
I saw him there
In the dark 
I can’t move
Something’s not right here
Something’s holding me!
Holding me very tight
NO! LET ME GO!
LET ME GO!
I started crying
He approached me
Pulling up the butcher knife
Please! Don’t do this!
It’s just a dream! It’s just a dream!
I need to wake up! I need to wake up!
Something’s holding me! NO!
LET ME GO! STOP! STOP! DON’T!
He’s right in front of me 
He raised the butcher knife and killed me
As I woke up, screaming
Yes, it was all just a dream
But it seemed so real
Why would this happen to me?
Wait, why do I feel like I’m being watched?
No, he’s right there
In the dark
I know he’s not real, this is all just a dream too
I need to wake up again! Water! Water!
I took the water besides my lamp and splashed it on my face
Why am I not waking up?!
N! He’s coming! With that butcher knife!
This is real! NO! IT CAN’T BE! NO!
He approached me 
I screamed and screamed
No one saved me 
He raised the butcher knife 
And stabbed me in the heart
Was it a dream? Or not? 
Please help me!
What do I do now?
I’m now all white
I walked and walked for something light
Yes! Light!
I ran to it and saw that I’m in heaven
Thank you!
I’m now away from that dream!
Thank you . . . 
I can now live in peace
Even if I don’t have a body anymore
I still have my spirit . . .

angel 4

for me there was no spark
to send fireworks 
into the sky
chemistry was not there
i did not desire
looking at you as a friend
very young immature
handing yourself so readily
to this an older man wiser in the 
eyes of the world
luck i am not a user
in the sence of the word
without drawing a picture
needing distance within oneself
silent words unspoken
clinging to me
please let me go 
if its meant to be
it will never never pass you bye i said
you were my first angel
the hand that took me out of the darkest
deepest of hell
in the time of sleepless night
i prayed for god'smercy
you were so sweet and very beautiful
lost i saw loves sweet beauty
a light began to shine 
i began seeing things differently
one beautiful lady
looking back 
i met you a couple times since 
that day 
i do not think romantically 
about you we are friends
for life guiding me as i do you
we were meant to meet 
i pleaded to god for help 
in the dark madness
he sent light in you 
then christmas eve fell
months later by this time 
i had the all clear 
my mother at my side
the number one of my angels
i went to confessions 
nearly a year after the break up
as i began speaking
with so much hurt in the house of god
i carried the pain of my world 
within this searing ache
breaking down crying
in front of the priest
begging god to forgive me
in not knowing what i had done
i felt the holy spirit enter me
the priest turned to me and said
touched this 
lonely heart so deeply
son god loves
the tears just wailed out of my soul
why in love does it hurt me so much
please god 
of mercy help me understand
son the pain bestowed upon you
was not the sins  of love
love is beautiful
should be cherished 
in gods eyes you love
you carry the sins of another
who bestowed pain 
i left said my prayers
the priest hugged me
i felt a warmness deep inside of me
holy lord i smiled shook the fathers hand
like a massive weight of my shoulders lifted
i went home that night 
a completely different person
i sit in my own pad 
with my loyal friend
my dog buster really i should call him goofy
looking into the night sky 
christmas eve looking at the stars 
i remember it like it was yesterday
clear  crisp cold air 
the stars were so clear
all alone i wished for the world smiling
a happy christmas 
with all the love in my heart 
that was all i had to offer
as god he has a plan for me
the abnormality disappeared
he gave me a miracle 
another of my many chances
in my chronicles of life 
this was the night of my awakening 
call

Fill Us Again

These days we all are just a bit more wiery ,
Even on common ground we have become leary.
  Trust is much harder to come by  these days,
Losing our faith has made us lose our way.
  Kindness & compassion a thing of the past,
Because of this love and Joy can not last.
  Smiles and laughter a rare thing to see ,
How I miss the way it use to be.
  We have become helpless and tolerant to unjust,
As we watch our hopes and dreams turn to dust.
  Discouraging words is all I am hearing anymore,
A little kindness and support would help for sure.
  It's sad as I sit here and see how we have all changed,
What makes it worse is that we are the blame.
  How to fix all  this and get us heading straight,
There is a way but fear it might be to late.
  If only we would take more time to pray,
It wouldn't be long before we found  our way.
  Becoming cold and heartless is what I've always feared,
I pray for our Lord to take us all away from here.
  Fill our hearts with love and joy again ,
We will follow you Lord forever Amen.

Mysterious Entry

Crossed by the throne of Heaven, I took myself down to its early night. 
The clock was low over the mantle. 
I saw it but that twice. 
I felt the aching honor crossing, desperate devious plight. 
Heartache became the truth of me, and the shadow was a name. 
I knew for once, when hollow hills came to call with names, as gray as summer sun and bathing hearts. 
I saw forever what was truth and sorrow. 
I knew a name, an ancient name. 
Dark hearts named him in an age gone arcane. 
I saw his face carved from slate and a heart made from stone. 

I knew his name, He knew mine the same, but yet did not look twice, that would make ends, but watched from afar and never knew my face, yet he could feel my breath under my voice, and knew me such the same.

Grieving

a thousand times I call your name
throughout the day
like I always would

you'd come frolicking around the corner
always making your way
to me

a thousand times I swear I feel you
brush up against my legs
like you always would

a thousand times more
I forget your gone
because you should be here
not there

but I know it's an oasis
one where your lungs are restored,
your breaths aren't shallow
and you're eating all of the tuna in the world

a thousand times I swear I wake up
you next to me
on the other pillow

I can't help but sleep against the wall
afraid I'll roll over on you

and then I wake up,
pillow bare
no indent
and the reality takes toll
a thousand times I've prayed for your soul

but in the end,
I'm alone

Oh Lord Can You Hear Me


I close my eyes and begin to pray, Dear Lord, why is life so tough?
Oh Lord please forgive me, this pain is too much I don’t have much strength left.
For you have not failed me any time before so why do it now or is this your great plan?
Oh Lord can you hear me when I call out your name?

I need you right now for this life has gotten harder, sometimes I just want to let go.
I search for the answers that I may never know and I reach for the sky in hopes of your touch.
I pray you will help me with each very step and I pray my hand you hold within yours.
Oh Lord can you hear me when I call out your name?

I need all your guidance and I’m sure you understand I need help to get through this.
Sometimes I feel like this life should end but I have two children who need me much more.
I feel the wind blow as if you’re walking by I smell a sweet scent like you’re right by my side.
Oh Lord did you hear me when I called out your name?

Angel in the Darkness

Were are you my angel in the darkness?
Why did you let go of my hand?
Where were you taking me?
Speeding away on your broken wings.
Fixing the broken hearts,
and giving the gifts of happiness
in a dream of hate.
Speed along my angel,
Bring hope to despair,
mercy to cruelty,
and happiness to sadness.
Wipe away the tears
of the lost.
Wash away the nightmares
of the dirtied dreams.
Whisper words of love
to weeping hearts.
Were are you my Angel in the Darkness?
Whose hand are you holding now?
Take them from the darkness.
Speed away, my angel, on your broken wings.

Angel

               Angel

Gangsters angling for a deal on wet concrete by the station
Feared for life, but more for death, on the street
Souls purchased with wrong turns

Their associate last week lost his way in the park
An angel pulled up, found him, fed him a line, then a shot
Just for a second his eminence smiled, then died

A red car drove off with the pretty little assassin inside
After taking a kingpin out, removing the competition in a flash                         
Taking comfort in what a young girl can do when put to task

Now the concrete walk waits for its prey
Directed by others in a sequence of events about to play out
Events initiating a consequence of revenge unfolds

To exact equal pain in retribution for the loss of their boss
The gang had followed him for years and continues to do so 
Into an early grave, by seeking out the girl unwisely

From the shadow, an angel came again.  This time for them
With a killer’s lust for blood and blessings from above
Stray projectiles fly from all sides, initiated by the parties involved


The spree begins to shape the end of days, taken in an angry rage
Trajectory of chaotic gun fire directed at the gang
Took participants engaged down, one by one, until there were none

These stoic men feel mortality and reality effects
Only at the end of a gun at the point of death as wasted flesh
Saying her name with their expiring breath….. Angel

Hero

A coin two sides to one being
a dark and a light side of my soul
fighting to help the light win.

But the dark is easy fun and better in every way I can forsee. 
Why must I fight to be good to be the light in the darkness?

Because even if it's the hardest thing in life even if I die tring I will do so and face my fate head on. I will not got into the darkness without fighting I will be a hero if it kills me.

To have and have lost

To have and to have lost is the ultimate pain, 
Knowing that your life will never be the same again. 
That one little missing piece of your jigsaw called life, 
Questions as to what you did to deserve this strife.
Another angel for heaven above 
Empty arms but still the love. 
Never far from your mind 
If only life wasn’t so unkind. 
Little angel I love you so 
Fresh in my thoughts wherever I go.

Realizing the Outside

Sitting in the dark, a razor at my wrist, unable to stand the blood that pours from my veins. Knowing she expects me to land in the hospital. Holding on and feeling dead, chills run down my arms. Pain bursts from my heart. Pulling the steel through my skin hating all that is me. She appeared to me then all golden white and yellow. She wept infront of me calling me a broken angel. I reached out but i spilled a drop of blood upon her white blouse and I didnt realize that I had a lot of regrets In my empty house of hope. I watched that blood soak in and with a flash of pain I saw a younger me getting hit and raped. It was then that night i realized, when all the self hatred began by another hands who they themselves hate another with the passion of their own. This hatred and loathing an wishing of death, was never mine to possess. Images flashed of me in hospitals, my mother crying all around me people whispered that i was dying. An image that couldn't have been mine, flew right through my head there I hung from a willow tree a single white bed beneath and on that bed was a pool of blood coming from between my teeth. I pulled back to end those images and I whispered "I'm sorry" I knelt before the angel and took her head in my hands, holding her close but before i could pull her to hug me She looked me in the eyes The same blue eyes stared back at me that belonged within my skull. It was then that i had realized as I had said im sorry she had said the same, right back to me the way i had. I dropped the angel and with a crash the mirror broke to slivers. I threw my razor with a vengence my soul possessed with joy. This hate and vengence i felt was never mine to hold. I am something beautiful, no matter how scarred or whithered i am. I am nothing new, and I may be afraid to love, but im capable of being human, with no more blood and knives.

Shadows in the Dark

Shadows in the dark are now what I see Murky pictures of the loved ones no more with me I stare at them with a trembling heavy heart For we are now millions of light years apart Shadows line up as an army of ghosts at my door Asking me to exit the door without the hurt which I once bore Grappling with the painful thoughts, I take a step forward Towards my loved ones, and never look backward Ah! The reflections disappeared with the break of the dawn I Ran around to find them with a mind so bogged down Alas! I fell off from my bed, it was a dream insane I shouted,'Hold on! I am feeling no more inane' For they showed me glowing light even in the dark Now I can find a way no matter how loud is the life's bark Shadows in the Dark will always show me the light To fulfill zillion dreams and win life's every fight

My angel


Bound by silent words 
In this ring 
The circle of my life 
A harp playing 
Beautiful chords 
on silver strings 

Each the sweetest music 
To you my love 
As the angel plays 
The bells in heaven ring 
Happiness I smile love 

Love is all words 
The circle 
Of two hearts 
My ring 
The universe 
My love in a nutshell 
Sharing it with you 

sweetest words 
In my ears 
play beautiful tunes 
Echoed in the walls 
Of my very heart 
To you love

sail of in life

this ship sails 
in one direction
never looks back
only memories 
they drift by

saying how i feel
cast in this world 
an ocean 
of memories
always dreaming 
of something better

missing what 
you never had
sailing of into illusion
looks begin to fade
to feel the change
i am only saying 
how we all feel

born to sail 
of in this life
from youth matures 
like a good wine
drinking of it 
you will be no more

we all still go 
in this direction
give me a number 
if you can manage
a mystery 
like the pyrmaids 
of Egypt

old was 
its destiny
the ship that sails 
in one direction
our age

all our memories
no one can stop 
this boat sailing
destained,
final destaination 
our life

until this ship 
can sail no more
like an eagle 
my soul flies
 to the heavens
to be joined 
with angels

Another Day

Blankets of demons proceed me, while the angels weep, enter the greedy. Hours seperate you from certain demise never compromise my honor over your incessant need for attention. Blood flows from your neck as i cleave you in half. Belief in me is your destiny yet i shall not die in agony no i will be true to thee. Smoke of Various colors swirl around you as you enter the room. Never will you defie me or you shall be knelt beside me in a body bag that does not make me sad it takes me only minutes to make me mad when i was known as a crazy lady who got paid from shady intricate navys. Leap into my mind and collide with mazes full of daisies laced with cocaine and Alizé. Pray for me when you next pay to see the deadly king of Endless breed known for worldly weed. Grown in the time of the ten dollor dime i am made from wine. Hide from me when you take your tea you better plead for three seconds of free time before i clean mine never question the mind of the blind. Headphones worn by dead folks given fire we melt away given water we see another day.

Nature

I woke with a new ray of light,
Opened my window pane,
seeing the beauty of dusk,
I stepped out in the lane.

Dancing trees, chirping birds,
Mesmerising whistles all around,
What brings a shiver in me,
Is the glistening drops on the ground.

Cool breeze hovers around me,
Touching the depths of my soul,
Desperate sparrow for its grain,
Make my nerves go roll.

Life's many colours blended together,
Thus, creating a new rainbow,
May be once a serene dawn,
Yellow leaves again grow.

Quiet benevolent is the nature,
So tremendous is its casts,
Low horizons and distant clouds,
Really, all so honest in their tasks.

hell

from hell 
pain hammers
pounding in the head
casting dark shadows
steel cold deep

dressed in black
to the crossroads
walking in the dark valley
eyes lead heavy
waterfalls 
aches in the soul

in a forsaken place
secluded reserved
in pain 
piercing pounds
for aching guests
in no man's land
a zombie
between the living
and dead

in silent 
screaming words
a desert
of barren emptiness 
echoes comes alive
loathing

craving the soul 
is imprisonment
taking a walk 
through the mind
pulling back
 the cobwebs

without escape
confused bends 
in shapes
now the thunder roars
distorted visions
twisted feelings
emotions swells

cursed in the deep
the spirit
lightning strikes
power within 
the brain
in dark pain
i yield unto 
the light

the soul speaks
with voices 
of the spirits
thundering 
in the mountains
as god sent 
my guardian

recovers the heart
tainted with love
stronger in fighting
silken feelings 
i now stand 
at the crossroads

a gladiator
of light
i survived 
a battle 
in hell

Reflections

The way a rose would wilt

The depths of a search gone astray
This much I do pray
When its all said and done just give me Jesus
When the rules tend to be no fun

The light hurts at times stunned as in frozen with time
I'm blind in a mess that would loosen this rhyme
Kenny G playing nice in the back ground at the airport
An unusual request to leave behind the mess

Here I must confess;
Shattered fragments on the patio floor
Onto something yet so much more,
A rose stands out still as a memory for two

Shattered glass we will pass the way before
Let us seek to even the score
We lay awake at night still frantic as ever before,
In our thoughts still with a glimpse of laughter

The marble on the tile floor
Cobwebs surround us now as in an illusion caught in time
Broke and all alone down to my last thin dime
Yet with time a typical rhyme may rise

Beneath the garb of compromise from all its twisted lies
We look again to see our reflection in the pool of water
It cries out to touch the emblem of self yet
With a cry it will tear back an emotion with a shrug

Alone again with a sorrowful friend
Pick up the pieces from within

At First Glance

At First Glance
Our hearts ran together in a mile
The wind was blowing
My surroundings,
I could barely even notice.
My eyes, were just for you
The way you smile is just beautiful.
The way your hair sat on your shoulders,
The way you said my name
You left a shiver in my spine
You put me in a daze.

At First Glance
My heart lit up like a fire
I felt just like a cloud
hoping you would take me higher.

At First Glance
I knew that I would forever be with you
I can not picture the sky, in my mind
without the creation of the stars and the moon.
Girl you are my sunrise
and I'll forever be your sunset
this is the brightest form of love
that God has created yet.

At First Glance
At First Glance
I knew, that it would never be my last.

Wrapped In Black Chains

Wrapped In Black Chains

The motto is that love should last forever
That true love can withstand the strongest storm
And yet here I stand chained to my own heart
A prisoner to feelings I don't want to have

Through years of bliss my heart held together
Everything was going perfect until a crack appeared
And then more cracks joined that single crack
And the picture was far from perfect now

I've become an Angel of Death, brooding on the past
Wrapped in the chains of a forever bleak present
Knowing my future might be little more than a black cloud
Perhaps the weight of the chains will crush me first

I wanted to believe that love could withstand it all
That I would never be an Angel of Death again
But now here I stand with scarlet eyes filled with tears
They engulf me like the crashing waves of a tsunami

But I can still smile sarcastically as I tape my heart together
Knowing that I will never be pure nor wholesome ever again
That this time I will never revert back from being what I am:
An Angel of Death wrapped in black chains

Tear Drops

Tears fall on my pillow
Wishing you were here
Wondering where you could be
If there ever 
could be you and me

As Life is a dance
Secrets and Romance
Love stirs hearts
Than funny
depart...
from beyond

Over flowing
Hearts of Love
Never knowing
When times come
Always be ready
Never let go
Stay Strong

For Life here
is just like Tear drops
many disappear 
every day...
Never know
who tis may...

So Grab your Loved one
Let them know
Right away 
You Love them so
For you never know
Tis they maybe 
The next Tear drop
or could it be You or Me???

So I just must state
My Precious heart.. 
                  I Love you..

To my friend, Arthur

I’d like to poke Arthur now
You said you were so dark
That you lie on the floor twisted
From yourself hurting you
Why my friend?
Why would you want to hurt yourself
When he is the last person you want to hurt?
I wonder when you are beginning to see what
We all see you
A kind person, funny, full of laughter and full of light
Yes you do have your dark edge
But that is an allowance
We have to have room to breathe
To be on our dark side
On your days
But other than that your main person is who you are 
Not your dark side
That is causing you unhappiness
Light drowns out darkness
Haven’t you noticed? 
When you turn on the light 
What happened?
The room is full of light
Just like our image
We have to turn on the light
To really see who we are
Can’t see you in darkness, can ya?
Anyway, just want to let you know
What you haven’t already known
You will thank you for being a good guidepost
Instead of a punchbag
You know your body is going to rebel
And then you will have a mess to deal with
Haha anyway be gentle on yourself
Good old friend
I can say you are old
Because you are not young enough not to know better
Soo no more of that trash
It does not belong in you
It belongs on the curb

singing heart

sweetly touching
the insides floating
stirring feelings
one fairest princess
softening inside emotion
that ever stood 
before the eyes
of a man
heartbeats spinning
golden you

glimpsing behind 
the mirror
opening windows
good morning 
golden honey 
as the sun 
begins rising 
shining on you
 
one big smile 
passing it  over
the moon 
blowing  an army
of kisses
landing them squarely
on your beautiful lips 

blushing desires
embracing a dream
in sleeping beauty 
with warm love 
from my soul 
the heart sings
kissing an angel

Angel With No Wings 12-9-08

you say I'm an angel with clipped wings,
here to save you.
when I'm really an angel with broken wings,
here for you to save me.

you say my wings are clipped,
but they're really broken.
you say you need my help,
but it is really me who needs help.

I can't lose you...
I need you...
they broke my wings completely off,
before they were hanging by a strand, still able to be healed...

but now they're gone...
the evil ones took my wings and ran...
and the nubs that are left are scarring over...
making me less if an angel and more human by the second...

I need you to get my wings back...
I need you to sew them back on and remove the scar tissue...
I need you...
I need your help...

so when I get my wings back,
I can help you.
I can help save you...
I can help.

Anorexic Angel

Hello old friend,
I see we meet again.
It’s hard to purge the hate
And binge the beauty—
I’ve worn these metaphorical 
shoes
And trekked the span of a 
lifetime,
So you can’t escape the truth.
Grinding fears may gnash you,
Haunting demons may trap 
you,
But I will never harm.
Look in my eyes to see the 
scars
That you’ve let go to your arm;
Now that you’re here,
Let’s have a talk.

She was God’s gift to man,
Women too you might say.
When she looked to the night,
It would always part it’s way
So she could walk in the grace 
of day.
Her beauty breaks all simile,
And no metaphor could 
compare.
Let me show you her with 
nothing,
For she would resonate in the 
air,
Shining bright like the moon.
Opaque whiteness cascaded 
through
Ripples of the human genome.
She was an angel.

I watched her every day
With some brutish envy;
She, to me, was confidence 
A bright beacon of wonder
Or a whimsical whimsy.
She would walk with perfection
Riddled into every step taken.
And even though it was 
unbelievable,
She would walk with me.
We became the blood of life,
The elixir of friendship.
I couldn’t breathe without 
thinking,
Without hoping she was alive.
Because when you love a friend
Like I loved her,
You would die to see them live.

Yet something changed in her,
It grew dark like a possessed 
thought.
Poisoning her heart with 
insecurity
The disease took her soul first,
Before coming to claim her 
body.
A body that never needed to be 
claimed.

Have you ever watched a friend
Die?

She became so lost;
A ship on stormy waters.
Oh, how I tried to show her to 
the shore,
A translucent lighthouse with 
no light.
Her soul was bleached from her 
skin,
Her bones like dust beneath the 
parchment.
The story shined on the body 
that
No longer belonged to her,
And a critic with gross morality,
I was forced to read.
I saw ignorance and bliss,
Pain and compassion,
Hope and destruction,
Truth and repulsion.

I couldn’t believe that she was 
dead and gone,
Words from a wordless song.
I was left in the darkest hour,
Holding her empty and cold 
body
While the world watched and 
judged.
They always judged and never 
helped,
Never bothered to look her in 
the eye
When they were the only 
reason she had to die.

My angel had fallen,
Like rain or like snow. 
She was magical,
But she had to let go.
I think she might say it was 
worth it,
But you be the judge now my 
friend.
Should you continue on the 
path,
You may meet the same end.
Angels fly and fall,
May the truth give you wings.

DEEP IN THE HEART OF A CHRISTMAS SMILE


Such sweet
Your smile
I feel home
If I could glide smoothly, quietly along
Your smile
I am comforted
your smile is music in the air
The Christmas carol
In the warmth of the hearth
In the winter season
Your smile is like diamonds
Shining. Your eyes are of the softest velvet.
I feel elated. What an entrancing beauty.
It's truly Christmas.
Your hair is glistening 
like the soft glow of the morning sunshine
against the bed of snow.
A haven. An angelic vision.
Frozen icicles feel tingly as your smile twinkles 
Against the backdrop of celebrations
Your smile can ease away the pain of long years.
If I could take your magic along with me
My life could change for sure.
But your smile is a fading memory now.
I fear of losing the grandest feeling 
Knowing that your smile is occasional.
Inconstant, like the summer birds on tree branches
Singing yesterday. But gone to some warmer place now.
It's snowing outside. Nothing feels warm. 
Twinkling of Christmas lights around the village
Somehow try to keep the place warm and picturesque.
Deep in the heart
My memory tries to still remember
Your smile
Wishing it would bring me home 
for Christmas soon enough
Before it gets late
To say, "Merry Christmas!"

(Note : Confession makes me say this free verse is not so well polished, as if it's done in haste. But, i hope i somehow captured some delicate emotions in it. Could be more meaningful to the poet herself than to anyone else. Recently, I found myself watching and listening to a world-renown choir on a satellite broadcast, and the camera happened to focus on a simply beautiful sweet smiling face. I thought I felt that it was the inspiration I was waiting for to write my Christmas poetry. And so, I took myself aside amidst the hustle and bustle and began to write. Have a joy-filled Christmas to everyone!)

Death Angel

Darkened souls, within the shadows.
Fearless watchful eyes, as I pass on by.
Exposed,  my heart throbbing within my finger tips.
Forget this sense of fear that watches over me.  
I feel myself pivet from side to side, there really is no compromize.
Dissalussion, I had to try...  Body aching, bones now breaking.
Shadows now seen,  hours before I leave.
Time to dry my eyes, the cold re-awakens.

The Face In The Moon

Blood drips from my weary eyes
Tears weeping for the tyranny of time
Villainy rapped up in the atmosphere
Raping and seducing the innocent without fear.
The baseness of aged old women
And the iniquities of hoary men
Mingling in dirty beds dining in public places
And sleeping with gray- haired jezebels. 
The ageing moments creeps slowly upon the door steps
Spewing out guilt and starving shame
Greedy guts packed with treacherous fumes 
Mesmerizing the mind of innocent youths.
The authoritarian amalgamate with them 
Laughing with them feasting with them
And shaking their bloody and filthy hands
Wounding hearts puncturing souls  
Yet half of the story is still untold. 
The music rattles on battered edges
Playing a sour disgusting tune
Gearing up for a perilous journey 
Hoping that it will give them victory.
I spent the entire night in the parking lot 
Crying out to my invisible God
Asking him to show his hand of mercy
And deal promptly with this vicious cruelty
I wept and prayed yet everything remained the same way.
But yesterday while driving around the block
Something magnificent happen right on the spot.
The big round moon with its glowing light shone directly through my
Windscreen and I saw a face in the brightly lit moon 
It was smiling as if it was speaking directly to me
I had to keep my eyes on the road so I glanced at it for a few seconds.
And when I circled around the block 
The face in the moon smiled at me again.

God's Kind of Poetry

God's kind of poetry, wow where can I begin.
God's kind of poetry, I only know it stays honest till the end.
I can't envision or even fathom explaining perfection through God's eyes but describing his brilliance brings me much pleasure and glory and for that I'll gladly compete for this prize.
If exposed to his complete creation, I imagine atheist would spend their entire lives looking for a single hint of a flaw.
I said their entire lives, cause it would pass them by in amazement of what they just saw.
God's meaningful messages can flow through you gracefully and with timely understanding.
God's important lessons can even bump into you if you was busy and not closely listening.
I imagine God's art is so complicated yet premeditated, it can't be traced or ever forged.
If with hate or even simple disbelief in your soul, reach out to Lucifer and become forever heavenly purged. 
God's kind of poetry, I'm so glad I began.
God's Kind of poetry, I pray through life's obstacles, it remains instilled in me till the end.

a story of an angel

my life it took a turn
some one was talking 
each week when shopping 
i got a cancer scare
never said nothing
80 per cent chance

thank god
who cured me 
my mother refused to leave my side
she knew with this looming
i just did not care
my fiance dumped me 
whilst i was going to hospital
my mother knew this
i had given up in life 
god knows i tried so hard 
now i felt completely worthless
all i ever did was love someone
her knowing what i was going through 
done it like this 
it was like i was stabbed in the pain
within the head i dropped to my knees 
and roared to the heavens why do this to me
all i ever done was love someone 
i gave my everything
helped you rear your kids
you gave me one cruel end
thats another story
 i have written about
she had an affair with her boss
forgot about everyone
but her self
not ever talking thats how it ended for me
she kept asking me down to talk 
each time she lied 
caught out as her brother phoned
saying his sister my partner is having an affair
even the kids knew about before me 
i lost everything 
now i stand at the crossroads 
i will write the story 
of the beautiful angel who helped me out
her heart it touched me 
but sorry with love i was in hell
didn't want to burden anyone 
as the shoulders were laden so heavy
with internal pain in betrayal
not wishing it on anyone 
this beautiful angel was a young girl
half my age said to me once
in the time in question my head all over the place
tortured deep within love confused what did i do wrong
she came walking up to me smiling 
i was smiling back as i was pleased to see her
she put her lips to mines 
saying that she loved me 




to be continued in angel two

Life-altering Experience

Her eyes shut down,
Her life had been stolen, sleeping on a summer day,
Deeply, she’d snored in relief,
“She found the light”
The one she always searched for
Because the world is dark,
But her spirit can light up a town.
My mom met heaven,
Heaven approved,
And God introduced her to it.
I just didn’t think that God had to put her to bed,
For a whole month and a half,
Because we missed her,
We thought
We’d lost her.
But
You only borrowed her, 
She has returned.

priceless gem

from out off
one billow 
of smoke 
taking form
in the mist 
sweetly vision creates 
a maiden 
who draws on
that of beauty

kidnapped taken 
into another space
standing upon
the carpet magic
one regal jewel
enchanting heartbeats
crowning rose
sweetest princess 
cut above divine
 
sparkling priceless feelings
treasured gem 
emotions sparkle
they gently 
then silently flutter
inside a whispering 
cool warm 
loving breeze

Broken down Angel

In my kitchen alone on the floor i cry
anti depressants not working
people pulling for my happiness
and yet i am sad because i lack the personality i desire to try
i feel like a victom
in a world where everyone is the fool
in my mind i remember a world i am from and i am a tourist here
and my dejavous i remember the segments of
tells a story
of the time before when i visited this world
where everything was just like this 
but i had a different purpose for i was more pure
changing those around me for the next time we did this dance
if that makes sense

sure it sounds narcissistic
like in my psychiatricly ill mind and dreams everything revolves around me
how i believe i have the ability to communicate through telepathy with people 
across the seas and have them keep secrets for me
like i am flash gordon in dreams and weaving mysteries
and the bible is a blueprint for everlasting life that revolves around pulling off the 
one big april fools day surprise party mind game with me in the middle


if you had my mind and the ability to analyse your experiences
seperate them all 
and tell them all as seperate stories instead of one grand intertwining experience
would you understand me
my dreams are memories of alife i once lived
flashbacks
dejavous
traces of something lost in time
the life im living now
im just a detective on the crime scene
looking for the maker of the riddle
who offers the reward for the one who was awake and paying attention 
to realise 
gods power created everybody and everything on one day
and we are all one machine

I am a broken down angel playing hide and go seek with shadows
learning new ways to love
feeling predicted
by a world that begged for centuries for an angel to fall form the heavens
and im the only one that fell
and im here and there might be consequences for me not being perfect
and me no longer having wings

Loving angel




As the lovely soverign angel cloud awakens 
Each mystical catalyst emigres , to one cocoon light
 Shimmering wings, soft spiritual each soft night
 Visions quest her benevolent one returns in the twilight

Look closely as his spirit merges with one aquarian
 The tribal legend brings her regal flight
 Inspiration body, soul, mind
 Timeless quest he journey each night to her

Thus she calls to the revered skies
 With each fading light his scared light comes
 His name known to many "Pathfinder"
 He carries thus , the winged angel being

You have shared a thousand tears with me
 I opened my soul long ago, to be with thee
 To lay pons' mother earths canopys
 Each souls seed to savor, my darlings tears to me

 
You touched me within my inner spirit glow
 You share it always with me, kindred tenderly
 My soul feels apart as it opens at nigh
 Tears ,soul of jasper moonlights hauntings waves


 
You have counted stars while I kissed you
 Soft lighted kiss almost immortal
 The hands of my truest being
 I love you , my immortal love

Under Your Spell

Under your spell 
Am I in heaven or hell?
I’ve bled too many times
The clock still chimes

Under your spell
You torture me…I’m falling in a well
I’ve said “I love you” too many times
The clock still chimes

My dreams are broken 
But, I feel good with you around
I’m sorry, I must flee and open
Up the gate to peace…you threw me to the ground

Under your spell
I’ve lost my mind…oh well
I’ve been lost for so long
Life’s like a song

Under your spell
You defeated me…with your spell
I’ve said “I hate you”, but I don’t mean it
I love you, friend – at least I admit it

 My dreams are broken 
But, I feel good with you around
I’m sorry, I must flee and open
Up the gate to elation…you pick me up from the ground
And you are forgiven

Under your spell
I can’t believe I’ve fallen in your trap
Can you hear me in the well?
I can’t believe you have threw me in here – cut the crap

Under your spell
I’m looking overhead for some sunlight 
Pour forth bliss upon me…get me out of this living hell
Hold on…don’t let go of me…good night
Good night…take flight tonight

There Was No Escape

Treat others how you like to
for they will treat you how you want to
be ready for absolution for it will come
I have seen it plenty of times and it is done
I know you want to believe in me
I know you want to see me
I want you to desire and receive me
I know you think it is the pain and pleasure mixed
this brings out the best in a quick fix
like it or not I don't care
I think of all the things that make me stare
into an abyss filled mind
I am empty inside.
Hollow and crazily veiled a fool's note
I am so shallow
Desire me and make yourself known
I am so beautiful
So vein as well
I have never seen heaven
not even hell
I think I am in one, not the other
the improbability of it is that you've my lover
How dare you
How do you believe the things I have done are not real
How can you feel
How can you feel
How the **** does it make you take you and break you
into little pieces the size of my heart
I am desired by all...from the start
I started to believe in you
I started to design
the things that i wanted to do to you with you and by you
I think those things were taken apart by a little known vermin
I think and the thing is that it is so churning
my stomach is crushed
I am demoted further down
I am left bespoken
Likely without a sound and a mouth to speak with I have received this
I know you
I know you know me too
I know you are so dead to the world; to my heart you are so new.
question me
Despise me
Devote nothing more than your lies to me
How dare you
Do you know who I am
Do you realize I am more than a man
How can you question your reality
I am here
you are there
You are not something to believe in me to be thrust upon me
you are truthful
Yet deceiving
Die alone then
I shall not care
I shall just stare into your void of a beautiful
I know you
You are so lustful and dutiful
I shall never realize but maybe I will know after I die
How could you
how could you DO THIS TO ME!
I question my sanity
Left with a brittle stonehenge for a trusting heart
Instead...I depart with a crazy beautiful mistake
I now take...you apart and make you seem less than real
I know you are something someone to feel.
I am mistaken
but never so taken by someone who is so vein and so lustful
I am so distrustful
How can this be
I am so left aback and taken
I am so ****ed up and so broken
Be with me or leave me 
But let me know what it is going to be
I need to know so tell me NOW
I dare you to make it into something other than this
I want to believe in the thing that is
You are
You are so fortunate
Quite distrustful into the fire I am thrown by you
I am so fated...my heart rearranged into a blossom
I think it is now awesome
Grand and spectacular, how you are vernacular spread upon my table
I am so thankful
Treat me with respect and I will make you not regret
I am your savior
your one and only
You make me think of the things that make me adore thee
How DARE you, do you really think I LOVE you?
I do not even KNOW you, what are you all about
Are you here to taunt me, to flaunt yourself and spread your desire upon me
I am so flaccid
sometimes I think of myself inactive and dead upon a doorstep
I think nothing is ever broken
but my heart lies unspoken for
Like true dirt-less desire spot on and spotless I cry out to you
I am broken; you are the death bringer
The heart never rendered by your touch ; you stringer
Along of the many things I have done
I KNOW you, I know everything! 
The way you make me feel the way you make me stray
How can you believe anything is real in this world besides me
I am here to make you want me
I am here to make you want me
I am going to make you want me and escape from the reality of the one true verse
Of course; take me into consideration and make me into an action word
verb me. I am yours
I am forever taken
I am forsaken and broken and something like a word that is stolen
Listen to me
Make me believe in you
Make me something like a story and make me swoon over your corpse
your heart melts into mine
Likely story she said
I am fine
No
I am breathless
Break me and take my corpse into the void of your beautiful mind
Like a story that has taken ages to write
I am giving you this
I am receiving nothing in return
contemplate the possibilities you have learned
that there is no heaven nor hell nor escape
life is all there is and feelings are what it takes
your emotions are here and now
you want me or not that is what is real now
I am with you, you are with me forever
I am yours so take me
I am breathless
void-less and clever.

little angel

Blowing a kiss 
to Heaven
A missing piece 
of my heart 
In the ceremony 
of my life, 
my judgment impaired 
A chalice
of love and hurt 

Buried deep 
in my soul 
Heaven forgive me , 
my angel 
is there with you 
I pine my love 

Praying you keep safe 
My little treasure, 
oh merciful Father 
If only I could swap places 
I surely would 

A piece of my heart 
Forever will be yours, 
as I carry 
you with me 
In life 
my little baby 

The life to heaven 
you have the power 
of an angel 
Now my beautiful baby 
You live with me forever 
In my heart and mind 

Heaven's angel 
is with me 
Loan me your wings 
To fly to thee

An Agent of Life

My names symbolize and mean victorious.
I am a soldier of a higher power.
I am one that is here on a direct mission:
To defend the defenseless.
I am a sword.
The sword strikes those who attack the weak.
So that the attackers feel the wrath given to me,
And understand that I treat them as they treat others.
So that the weak know,
They are never alone in this fight.
I am a shield.
The shield defends and respects.
It respects that all are human,
I am wisdom.
I step back and watch the skirmishes of life,
I review them rationally,
So that when I join a battle,
I know, I am on the right side.
There is a higher power.
It inspires me to act.
But It is kinder than I.
It would forgive where I would strike back.
But I will fight anyways,
For it is my duty to fight other battles.
Life is a fight,
But I…
I am a sword.
I am a shield.
I am wisdom.
I am…
Victory!

SOS part 3: Priceless Treasure

Ohhh…see right through my pain – regret & shame slits me like a knife, shaking 
in the hands of a cutter – I’m trying to look on the brighter side of life, but I 
am blind and I am feeling left behind…ooh I’m trying to leave behind the past if 
you don’t mind
Shame embraced me, never leaving my presence – I’ve been driven insane by 
Depression and Anxiety…I’ve lived through so much stress and distress, yet 
I’m still surviving & I’m still thriving to be positive and to have a happier frame 
of mind (someday, I won’t be blind…I’ll be shimmering anew like priceless 
treasure – God has given me His miracles and talents of plenty…to me & you, 
He has been so kind)

Soar in the ebony sky with me, darling child of His…we’re having a lot of fun
Understand that you and I will fly and sing in unison
I saw your velvet wings take flight and I will never forget that moment
Come on, come on – show me the way that we should go, so that we will be 
forever content 
Isolated by the world and its chaos and commotions
Dare to wonder why we are considered the lights of the world? How can we 
wash away our waves of emotions?
Easy answer – I can tell by your echoing empathy that you are God’s Faithful 
Child and YOU are overflowing with bliss and hopefulness – I love your 
splendid, flawless qualities that has been passed down to you by the Lord of 
Accord Himself! I can’t express my utter happiness and satisfaction right this 
second, but please – be by my side, angel that embraces fervor-flourishing 
flight – you are such a sundrenched sight…shining bright with all of its might 
tonight 

Save me – I used to have suicidal ideations in my mind…watch over me, Lord of 
Accord…I can’t find the light in goodbye, so let me say before I go – I love you 
so, friend of mine – let me unwind for a little while and give me some space if 
you can be so kind…sit with me on the ground…I’ve been feeling lonely and lost 
in a multitude
Ohhh…see right through my pain – regret & shame slits me like a knife, shaking 
in the hands of a cutter – I’m trying to look on the brighter side of life, but I 
am blind and I am feeling left behind…ooh I’m trying to leave behind the past if 
you don’t mind – for the meantime, I’m gravity-bound; however, I’m trying to 
maintain the attitude of gratitude
Shame embraced me, never leaving my presence – I’ve been driven insane by 
Depression and Anxiety…I’ve lived through so much stress and distress, yet 
I’m still surviving & I’m still thriving to be positive and to have a happier frame 
of mind (someday, I will be priceless treasure, destined to be found – I don’t 
want to ever feel ashamed and nude)

Gilded Return

Slowly with unstable steps, she approaches.
The room is dank a foreboding intensity permits the air.
She is shaking as the memories wrap their inky hands around her throat.
The terror starts to build as the anguish she'd managed to lock away becomes unleashed.
It is feral, with fangs and razor sharp claws. 
The beast she'd burned turning into the regret of a monster for all of her sins. 
The room once furnished so lavishly now had boards bared through plaster showing holes allowing vermin and insects to do with the place as they wished.
In her eyes, the room was in it's glory as it had always been. 
The candle wax began to drip onto her hand.
Her eyes now resembled that of a newborn doe's as her eyes fell to a heavy book.
Bound with crisp thick paper and worded with the freshest ink and sharpest quill.
The satin was superb in all of it's glossy onyx nature, her home.
One step after another, fragile feet glide over the floor, rustling of pristine skirts.
Her breath became heavy and idly half of her mind wondered if she was suffocating.
All too soon it seemed she was standing before the book, hardly did her eyes stray,
yet memory served her well as the old oak table was exactly the same to her as before.

He haunted her in every aspect within her life.
All she held dear was slowly crumbling until insanity threatened to become a reality.
What was her old lover's memories attempting to provoke within her?
Anger? Surely not she only dwelt with remorse and regret for wasting precious time.
Heedless of her warnings to her own mind she could not run from the chocolate of his eyes.
Nor could she handle being bombarded with guilt at every smile that slipped over her features.
If only he could see her now, he would relish her miserable exsistance.
Death was a mask wedged deeply into her very cells and she accepted it.
This last dream had become her undoing it would appear, for here she was.
For every good memory and ghastly deed she had locked within this book.
A memento of her exsistance for she feared being forgotten when the earth reclaimed her essence.

With loving fingers and velvety skin she caressed the spine of the book.
With a bitter sweet smile she took the slightest corner of the tome and eased it open.
Immediatly musk and a definate spice bombarded her senses in a pleasing array.
The nearly unrecognizable strings of words no doubt made sense for any with mind enough to carry a magnifying glass of sorts.
Sitting with a sigh she spoke quietly.

I am Home.

A rose blossoms heart of this soul
flowers so hot amazing beautiful

Alone in the Garden

It was cool and damp on the ground in the garden
My beard was unkempt and covered with the salt of my tears
My hair was wet from perspiration
And my clothes damp with the stench of anguish
Who would sit and pray with me?
Who dare stay awake with the Savior? 
I am a loving man and King and I will not beg anyone to sit with me 
On the coldest day for my heart of suffering
And then the heavens opened up and there she was
My Heavenly Father sent unto me another
An angelic being with the presence of love and healing
A magical balm upon my heart of pain
Her name was Uriel and she was my constant companion in the heavens
A dear friend from so far away
She sat with me and prayed with me in the garden
Giving me comfort to this very day
Friends forever sent to escort me to the cross of pain
Sent to escort me to the highest calling of my life upon this earth
To defeat death and to have my dear angelic friend alongside me
A comfort for me everlasting
A friend from the heavens
Alone in the garden
With my dear friend

Written by Gwendolen Rix

Luke 22:43-44
43 Then an angel appeared to Him from heaven, strengthening Him. 44 And being in agony, He prayed more earnestly. Then His sweat became like great drops of blood falling down to the ground.

JESUS IS ALL AROUND US

JESUS IS ALL AROUND US

Guess who just is all around us every day
Our mild-eyed Lord that is always around
He has not changed at all He's the same 
But friend's, I still think you are crazy

Yes Jesus is all around us

As your always asking if He is still around
How He is and where He could be found
Told you He was living around waiting
On you to call on Him to come in your hearts

Yes Jesus is all around us

You know that Church that you used to visit a lot
Every Sunday you would be in the front row, listening 
When I told of Jesus' live and how He wanted us to live
You were the one who stepped up and got saved 

Yes Jesus is all around us
Spread His word around to all People of all Nations

A heartbeat only she can hear

Dancing in the shadows, fallen angel of the night, accepted by the darkness when abandoned by the light.
Embraced by its desire, darkest delight pulling her near, in the arms of blind divinity, a heartbeat only she can hear.
Fire in her veins, she breathes life unto the dead, shrouded in the passion of being shamefully misled,
Fallen angel of the night, her psalm upon the midnight air, animated effervescence captured in a vacant stare. 
Dancing in the shadows, fallen angel of the night, accepted by the darkness when abandoned by the light,
Embraced by its desire, yet upon her a cheek a single tear, still bathing in divinity to a heartbeat only she can hear.

The seed of Christ

Reaching up to me on the road,
She began to talk:

Walking to the corner's
Funeral Parlor, where
Employed as
A make up artist

Noticing my horror, 
She stopped for a moment,
Her lips curved into
An angelic smile, then spoke:

Did you know that
Death is only a dream and 
The body so much more
Than corpse or clay?

Our body is  the seed of Christ, 
Sprouting, flourishing, 
Withering and resurrecting  
By Divine Command!

In the colors of the rainbow
The body preserved, to see the new

My Lovely Gal

Hello Chloe

You are now 4 years of age here on this planet earth
I cannot quite remember that particular age actually
But
I think you are truly amazing
I have seen a lot of incredible people in my short time
You always make me smile, laugh and think
I love evolution when I see your eyes
Somehow I may have evolved too
Just because of you
You give me the energy every day to push the idiots aside
And just watch you become the person I see so obviously
Beautiful and powerful
Sometimes I sit in awe
What else can a dad do

Happiest day my love!

Love of soldier

Between mountains and rivers,
inside the jungles,
lies a strong muscular lion.
After the sunset everyday,
looking for and roaring
to the light of day.
Marching and shaking the ground,
oozing heart and eagle eye.
The lion shows firmness, wisdom,
kindness and caring for his followers.
Hurrying first to the front line,
tender and generous with the weak and poor.
Abandoned by his lovers,
for running after his duties.
One day a lioness heard his roaring.
Moving and looking around,
running here and there.
After a long search,
slowly....slowly
between trees and grass
her eyes fell into his eyes.
The drums of love beat in his heart,
the rainbow colors filled his soul.
Suddenly the roaring turned into a full calm and peace.
Walking gently towards her,
she runs away and hides,
scared, and shaking her anklet revealed her...(to be continued)

Dreaming Child of a king

I am just the dreaming child of a king who resides in the heavenly skies above. The only thing that I have ever wanted to do was help people who were in need by building hospitals, bringing food, clean water, and promoting the recovery of lost dreams.
The only thing that I the dreaming child of a king desire to do is bring a smile to a downtrodden face, mend a weary heart, and remove the scars and cuts from someone's beaten and contrite heart before I depart from this earth now that to me is my true life's worth.
I the dreaming child of a king paints a picture with words to show that my heart is a heart of love, I also paint a picture to show those who have never met the dreaming child's soul that it is a soul that aches to help the dreams that were once lost be achieved again.
Destined to destroy dreams that was not what I was put on this earth for I was created to help those lost like me find their way back to Heaven's door. I was not created to shed other's blood, scar their hearts, or make them weak I was made in his image so me being the dreaming child of a king he is the only thing that my dreams and I truly seek.
I lie awake with the paint brush of my dreams in my hands using many colors and painting many dreams from different lands whether rich or poor the only thing that my dreams and I desire is to be like a free bird and finally soar. Being the dreaming child of a king haunted by his sins, forever trying not to fall into the pit, the only thing that this dreamer desires is to one day hear the words well done and as a result my sins will no longer cause me to run.

Black Angel Of Death-Part 1

You saw me sitting there, watching the broken wave’s crash upon the shore.
I think of you and nothing more.
Thunder clapped with each horrible memory.
Please don't wonder. Please don't worry.
Lightning breaks the sky as I sit there and wait.
For the black angel of death to come lead me to hell's gate.
I lay on the sand feeling incredibly dumb.
I'm crying and screaming for death to come.
Why haven’t you come? I'm begging and screaming for death to come lead me to hell!
If not hell, then my grave either is well!
I lay here with no purpose.
No purpose in life, no purpose in living.
Black angel of death, please come, I'm anxiously waiting.
You wondered what was wrong but you didn't come ask.
That could've saved me, that one simple task.
Further and further I sunk into my darkness.
Reaching up for something, anything to pull me back up.
I sank further and further while you sat there and watched.
I reached hopelessly up and waited, waited to be lifted out.
I lay in the sand as the broken waves crashed around me.
I cried and screamed for the black angel of death to come take me away.
To hell? To my grave? I didn't care where; I just wanted her to take me away.
Away from you? No, you pushed me out. Further and further. Deep into my darkness.
Away from hell? No, I'm begging to go there, anywhere. I don't want to stay here.
Away from hurt? No, too late for that. You did a lot and you sat there and laughed.
Away from your lies? No, nothing could take those away. They've scared me deep and won't disappear.
Away from your game? No, I already quit, pulled out and lost. I wouldn't be lying on the sand crying, screaming, for the black angel of death to come.
Away for this life? Yes. Away from this life. I laid there and waited for my black angel of death to lead me away from this life.
To live in my darkness, to drown in my darkness.

Black Angel Of Death-Part 2

Further and further I sink into my darkness.
Desperately reaching up. Reaching up to grab hold of something. Failing. Failing and falling.
You sat there and watched as I died on that sand!
You sat there and watched me drown in my darkness and you didn't grab my hand!
I laid there and died on that sand. You didn't even care! You just turned around and walked away.
Again! You did it again! You turned around and left... Just like you did the first time... Except this time you forgot to say goodbye. You turned around and walked away... You let me die.
Could you have saved me? Yes, you could've. You could've saved me! You could've picked me off that cool wet sand. You could've saved me... You could've grabbed my hand.
But instead you sat there. You sat there and watched as I screamed for the black angel of death.
You sat there and laughed as I reached up for you. You didn't try. You laughed. You sat there and laughed.
You let me drown... You let me die... You didn't care... You didn't try... You turned around and walked away... You could've saved me that day...
I drowned... I died... You sat there and laughed... You watched me cry...
The black angel of death came and led me to my grave. Leaving nothing behind but my cold, white, lifeless body.
To the grave I went. Tombstone above my head, red roses at my feet.
Far under the ground... Deep in my darkness...You actually showed up! For what?! You can't push me down further! I'm down all the way!
You lay a black, cold, stone heart and a black rose by my tombstone. You walk off... Slowly... Step by step... Back down to the beach... The waves still broke the sand still cold. Quietly you walk up to my place of death. You place a black wooden cross where I drowned.
Broken waves, cold sand.
Black angel of death...you led me here. Led me away from my ****ed up life... Black angel of death...never leave my side.
Broken waves, cold sand. Black, cold, stone heart, black, wooden cross.
Black angels of death protect my soul...
Black angel of death...
You sit there and watch the broken wave’s crash...crash around the black, wooden cross...
Broken waves, cold sand... Black, cold, stone heart, black, wooden cross...
Black angel of death...
Stay with me forever...

The Plague

I am the angel with the wings over her eyes,
Thriving in a land full of happiness and rose colored tints.
If my pupils were to meet the greetings of fluorescent lamps,
I would see the reality of it all.

The reality of the plague standing bare-chested in the mirror;
Her opalescent eyes gazing back in a tear-stained blue,
The rolling hills of her porcelain skin tinged with pink
And the mahogany hair in sweeping curls below the collarbone.

There is no beauty in this angel.
Only the wings distinguish her from the demon within
That rages with fervor unknown to the modern man.
The angel is only but a mask.

What would Mr. Peacock say?
His darkened romanticism is the only antidote.
Only his gothic swirls of the pale Ligeia
Could ever allow the plague to subside.

Never Letting Go

Do you dance upon my grave?
That silken flesh moving like waves.
Do you sing to the heavens?
The grace of you're voice formed to leaven the gloom.
With you're smiling face.

I would dance up on you're grave.
As agony raged like waves.
I would sing to the heavens.
For your soul to follow the way.
You'd see my smiling face.

The earth rotates.
And yet their worlds had stopped.
How unfair it all seemed,
when love had always been a dream.
But through a favored song,
they would forever connect.
Such as the will and promise.
Of equal empath loves.

What you want


these places 
have keys 
the doors are open
you don't need it, the key

what do you want 
once you get inside this or that room?
as you sift through these boxes, drawers
room fulls of people, these faces
you only barely see, touch, or smell them...

working them over is easy, you go about
who in particular are you looking for?
any one? what do you want to find?

so many say what you want to hear
some planning their attack with
as many a hand will soften you up 
feeding you their figs and lamb

I see how your eyes move to and from
I hear how your voice does that thing
I see how you choose, to walk or speak or not to sing
sometimes displayed above your head

a sign 

what are you looking for?

the key that's in your hand
the note that's on the track
where the arrowhead points
the way is clear

what do you want from them
for the moment ....
you flirt for their attachment?
to get close to the knives at the edge of the piers?

to discard someone or to have some 
just fall away
others are dragged along 
not ever knowing, showing

how you really care
who you really are

Angel Tears

Gentle drops of Angel tears
Once more she drifts to sleep
Anaesthetised and full of hope
Of faith, of love, so deep

A dark, dark mass looms in her form
A cancer cold and stark
They try to cut it all away
She'll wake with mornings Lark

They do the tests - they come to us
"There's more" - is what they say
She begs us - not to make a fuss
She's tired, asks us to pray

She wakes in small hours and holds us tight
She says it's time to leave
Be happy for her for she'll be alright
Small tears stain her virgin cheeks

Somewhere in the dark cold hours
She drew her final breath
Her brave yet quiet and Godly thoughts
Resound this Angels death

I think of things she would have done
Watch as other children play
I work to help others as if she'd won
Life's battle on that day

I know she looks upon those souls
She'd smile and talk so calm
And in their fears she'll comfort them
In loving Angel's arms

Our little daughter oh so young 
Yet old in pain wise years
Reminds me daily of all kids past and
Gentle drops of Angel Tears

As they treat her to a Happy Birthday party
And sing her name in praise and peace

Hi Girl, they would whisper to her soft and low
How lovely you look today

And she would whisper back hello 
Thank them for the fluffy snow 
For melting it away
So she can enjoy her special day.
Thank you for the flowers glowing blue and red

Angels smiled at her kindly and kissed her head
And blessed her hardships that make her strong

They danced in flowing summer fields so soft and long
They danced around her with a Happy Birthday wish   
To have her join them in joy and happiness 
To join them in a song and endless bliss

He was earthbound small

It was dark

Angel's Touch

If I were an angel, I'd grant 
the Asian infant freedom 
and a halcyon wind,

infuse the Native American
papoose with ancestral pride,

give the African baby nuru,
the light of understanding,
a potent shield in a harsh world,

and bring the Hispanic infante 
respect and peace of heart.

If I were an angel, I'd kiss  
[with my eyes] the Jewish babe
whose soul from heaven knows
all things* and efface memory,

visit the Caucasian at birth
with the gift of grace 
and a sense of moral reason
which comes only from God,

and to all the rest—newly born—
the wisdom of Solomon 
and literary promise, 
that the brotherhood of man
might match 
the balance of nature.

*This belief requires the babe’s
memory be erased at birth.

ASK THE MESSENGER

 on Earth’s circumvallate
 he would be laid,
 lifeless upon the lap
 of his Mother
 and on that day would be named
 now and forevermore,
 God’s Gether… for in that day
 are all tears gathered
 look at them, and fear
 the things to come, think
 ever deeper now, and greet
 this mourning, hear nature asking
 where, oh where, is he, who
 as our companion, travelled(3)
 all space-time freed of human form
 and feminine traits, and he
 self-named his essence, I-EAGLE-TWO…
 in memory of his father
 mystery of womb, wind, sky, and
 slaughter; held in that “eye” of awe
 as the sunflower’ diurnal motion
 laying openly upon the roof
 of this world, ever watching down
 calling gently to those “friends”
 and his enemies, laughing hauntingly
 at the latter’ lathering fear filled sweats
 as this “(????????)”,
 have you yet guessed this guest?
 at day’s dusk, and then again
 by dawn’s redeeming draw
 his reach is long, and into and through
 your minds he roams, teasing your thoughts
 twisting your faux beliefs
 as does Loki shift from witch to fly
 and consumes your roasted heart
 he, is that warrior’ bathed
 master of that “Fifth Discipline”
 “fostering aspiration” in the minds that seek
 developing “reflective conversation”
 between the strong and meek
 and through a universal rapport
 promotes “understanding complexity”
 “Systems thinking”
 this is his drinking water’ brine
 at his stand beyond,
 as “Keeper of the Western Gate”,
 within this universal bourse,
 upon those “circles of causality”
 he lends his hand to those who can
 to those who cannot, his whist
 he scends upon their brows,
 and boy! is it ever steamy!
 beaming out similes and hyperboles
 and itchy knees to his and hers,
 theirs and those, whose noses know
 the profound truth is fast approaching
 critically fast, that blue
 heated mass of spiritual essence
 that was promised to all of earth’s children
 that this “center” of the sun will come
 returning “hell” to earth to render
 those who earned their promised whipping
 for tipping life in their favor
 so, do look towards your sun,
 focus in upon that inner aye
 and glimpse your own future’s butcher
 and do fear what was foretold to be…

The sun was so bright today.
The feel of it on my skin

Even though you are not here
but you are…

The wind blows, the breeze ruffles my hair
like your heart touched mine
mother of my soul,
refresher of my wasteland.
Not birthed from your loins
but from your heart and mind
Mime, mother mine.

Gone where Jewish cherubs go
Oh, ye of the Buddha cheek.
lover of all life.
Ye with the bucket of vegetable soup 
ever at the ready to nourish

Beloved, my angel by so many.

you poured into the cups of mind.
If charity had a face, it would be yours, Mime.

Christmas Under the Sky

I watch the teary, misty rain
as the torrents of wind
move against the grey blackness
Stroking my pet cat
with her indistinct, blurry
message that's always tuned into
the joyful, sounding music of the universe

My heart yearning for a better love life
I think about the loves gone by
Memories of all I loved coming back to me
The undying love for my mother
sick and frightened
I exchange the calming, nurturing lilies
in her garden

Golden rhythms bring me peace within
the softness of the morning hours brings
an intense love and spirit of the giving season
hopefully more of kindness and unconditional
love than of material burdens and manipulations
I feel happiness suddenly - seeing the
blues in the greys that turn angelic white
understanding the message of life

Soothing and unexpected excitements
dreams of success in all the
fragments of being bringing together
the whole, inspired miracle
the magic and enchantment
Letting go of the stress
and going with the flowing light and love
bringing peace to calamity
of my soul and restoring it to
everything beautiful

Behind the Closed Door

You punctured me with words of painstaking poetry, but yet it was moving ~ ~ ~
You painted a picture of adoration and joy in my heart’s melody
Passion and happiness was never easy to get, but once I got it, there’s no such thing as losing
I won’t be losing this race tonight – you’ll be failing miserably…
Alright, dark angel…
Give me your best shot and show off your dynamic spirits of the abyss
Oh, you little devil…
Come and get me…hunt me down like your next prey..I pray I won’t kiss my distressful mistress
If I were handsome like diamonds in the cave,
I would’ve been like a knight, standing tall and brave
You and I were so perfectly flawed…you are the sunset and I’m the sunrise
You and I never quite fit in like those lonely pieces of the puzzle…you stare me down with knives in your eyes…we were lost in a multitude – oh boy, what a surprise…
Surprises hit you at every angle
Are you a devious devil or an elegant angel?
Be careful what you wish for
What’s behind the closed door?
You open the mysterious door in curiosity (Without hesitation, you let out a defeated cry)
I caught a glimpse of you, wandering around sheepishly (in the labyrinth of your mind’s eye)
Are you lost in your own paradise? Look into my deep blue sea eyes...
I’m done with you...I’ve waved my goodbyes...stop whispering lies...
I no longer walk on sticks, needles and rocks anymore…(your poetry made me ache extremely…I thought out bond was sacred…so holy…)
I knew something was awaiting me – a future in store…(your poetry, on the other hand, made me bleed out melancholy...oh so cruelly)

A LOVE LETTER

My thoughts burn me
Your passion within
Is a hollow furnace
My mouth of expression is shut
For your beauty stuns me
These thumb and finger, my 
saviour
Or this pen, a messiah
I burn to the bones.
My sleep watches every night
At my awoken wide eyes.
What a mockery of repose! 
I fear my strange emptiness
And time is of the essence.
I am stolen away
Far into your lost
My only compass, your heart.
Please, delay not
Kick start this love cart
For your heart I am aimed
Save me, I suffocate 
From an intense killing feeling   
Written you my heart 
I am writing you again
Summed up in three words 
Eight letters... I love you.

Saved By Wings

I lied in my bed, awaiting an angel to take me far away
It happened; I finally lost everything I held dear to me
The rose of love died and wilted away in my frail hands
I had given up on a future that I could see being happy

Until a small dove, so carefree and pure came before me
Kind and warm-hearted, I found someone to call a compantion
He taught me to be myself and let me smile once again
I thanked him and I learned once again what trust was

The angel I know evolved from the kind little dove I met
He is someone I hold so close to me and I know is pure
I was reborn once I learned of the feelings I felt for him
He did not laugh or taunt me, but he smiled in acceptance

Yin and Yang are the way my past and present are seen now
One dark and horrid while the other is filled with light
I was so alone, feeling betrayed and unknown to anyone
But now I am content and cared for once again; thank you

My angel.

Dedicated to someone who saved me from a darker time in life.

Cloud Man

in my head there is nothing
except few cloud-lets
white
they have no power of thundering
no water to pour
on the thirsty minds
of the gathering
confused i stood
on the stage
to avoid this awkwardness
i give a wide smile
and said
if i know anything
except poetry that is
i can defend well my religion
and my country
this i am doing since my child hood
but alas! they say
i do not belong to them
i am too liberal
my understanding does not match with
''their religion''
more they say:you do not follow
''our religion ''

the land where i am born
belongs to the people
of and from the majority community
my fellow citizens
say
though my fore fathers came to this land
like theirs
six and half century ago

if i go against the mainstream
protest against their diktat
and point out their mistakes of past and present
hold alternative views
of peace and development
i am warned
i will be labelled anti - national
will be marked illegal immigrant
forcefully they will push me where no man lives

now
i am a man
without mother land
with out name and identity
for whom till date i steal
they call me a thief
turn my blood into water
they are driving me out

the man who has no one
he has the sky
now
i do not run my roots
into the soil
instead spread them upwards
and take shelter
in a cave of a cloud
by the name of ocean
now i am the citizen
of the world

never ending dream

i found
inside desires
softly feelings touch
stroking feathers
breathing one passion
for a real connection

which sparks
of words 
in chemistry
flying to 
new heights
electrifying out
of this world

love powers
beauty shines
golden one dream
i have just had
of you baby
sweet angel

St Mary the Virgin Angel

I've always believed that there are angels amongst us
They're always hovering us, flying, watching unto every Aquarius
They are all in harmonious rhapsodies as they sing praises through the world,
St. Mary was and still the patron of all human beings upon this vast earth.
Watching with tender loving care upon our most glorifying eyes
She was the empowerment of all's purest of angels for she could be a healer,
Mary was a miraculous angel for upon all glories; she still adores one and all
through-out history and to mankind.
We'll all be accepted into the gates of her eternal love as we all will
Eventually fly into the pearly gates of heavenly doors.
As we say, "Mary mother of Jesus, please be my eternal mother to me now,"
For Mother Teresa said you have never failed her.
For in your loving arms and good will, as I say my prayers tonight
I'll always give thanks for your purest joy and be humbled upon your mightiest
existence.
Amen!

The story of two lives and an eternal love

God sent you as an angel in my life
The only miracle of love I ever had.
God sent you as a blessing to my soul
The only man I ever truly loved.
God sent us in the same time and place,
So we can meet,
So we can have a purpose 
So we can be complete.
I wish this God to tell me why we had to say good-bye so fast.
Why you to leave so far,and me to still be here?Why?
But my love for you reminds me the story of our love
At the first sight,when I saw your smile
I knew you gonna put your fingerprints on my entire life.
And then you took my heart and put it in a chain
When through your eyes you told me that we'll meet again.
At our first talk with your voice you gave me strenght.
I knew so well that's not the end.
From our first date you gave me love.
We knew so well we'll always be in love.
With the first kiss you sent arrows of sweet fire to my heart,
Since then, my soul knew that we'll never be apart.
I felt you are the one
You knew for sure I'll be forever yours.
And even now that we are so apart
I see your wings of angel on the light.
And even now that I am so alone
I feel your protectings arms around me,
And your guiding steps behind me.
I'll always feel surounded by your love.
Twin souls by God to fall in love were sent
Two souls that shared a love will never have an end.
Our destiny was to be together
We gived each other the beauty of a love 
That our souls will always carry.
It's so not fair that what we had it was so short
How will I live without you in this world?

angels

my grannies 
i was always 
their  favorite
the boy inside
the man 
they used
 to call me 
a little darkhorse 
cause i used to give
 little presents
 
things i made 
or pick them flowers 
sometimes the smallest 
little flower 
in my eyes 
i would tell them
they are little bunches
of flowers
for the little people
it was always magical 
i always though 
in dreams 
of colour 
one beauty 

for a little fairy princess 
with dark brown eyes 
like my own 
my grannies 
back then said 
i would break 
some woman's heart 
instead it was the other 
way around 

it was inspired 
from my grannies 
who always said
 i was a beautiful writer 
they loved 
my little stories
it was like they saw
something magical
through my eyes 
when i told 
a story

as they told me a few
i remember 
once saying
if i turned 
to a frog
granny 
do you think 
a woman 
would kiss me

kissing me 
on the forehead
of course they would
tears roll 
down my cheeks
as i write
they said 
that i was beautiful
why wouldn't they

they really 
loved  me
thinking back
i hope 
they look ore me
as angels 
it sounds to me
they remain
 beautiful

Waiting on That Call

If only I could kiss u as many times as I shed a tear last night.
I wish i were older. I wish people would  realize we are just two lonely kids trying to find a way in this world. I hope when the time comes for us to meet again we don't regret a thing. We will work out perfect we won't have to make anyone happy but ourselves. But for now, goodbye. I hope your life is as fun and amazing as you have made my life these past few months. I hope your successful, and I hope you find someone who loves you as much as I do. I hope you are happy in everything you do. Anyone who is yours is really lucky. Just know that when you need me to keep our promise, to find and fall back in love with each other, I'm where I always said I would be, waiting on that call, and on that day my life will be complete.

fever

the west grew dark with stormy clouds,
stinging rain and chill august winds
the whole heaven were in bright glow,
and the little kid,burning with fever,
late night, no doctor at sight,
fever rises like the waves on the full moon night,
will not the sky come to a halt?

In Praise of Endings

When Mom discovered
Dad's jaded eye, 
she barred the door 
on maltreatment.

When she consented
to leave the farm,
our last day of hard labor
in the cotton fields
flaked the dust off our boots.

When Dad's drinking
got out of hand,
she drew a new line
in her own gritty sand.

His constant discontent
gouged tattered holes
in Mama's peace.

When Daddy died early, 
her bondage sailed
down a river of freedom.

In her advanced years,
Mom's overworked bones
paid tribute
in spasms of pain.

Death, for her,
marked the end of struggle.
She said the angels were singing.

the faller

The Faller 
He stands at the edge of a tall mountain looking down the sheer drop. 
Seconds pass. 
The man jumps! 
Nothing stops his fall. 
Rocks smash his frail limbs like matchsticks. 
End over end till he finally hits the valley floor 2,800ft below, 
his body a bloody broken mass. 
Why did he jump? 
Suicide? 
No. 
Because he enjoys it. 
He's the faller. 
This jump is his 318th off this mountain. 
Broken limbs, pulped body, severed head, fatal injuries and death 
are an occupational hazard. 
It's ok. 
The destructive injuries vanish after 30 minutes and 
the faller is as fit as a butcher’s dog 
and mad as a psychopath to jump again. 
Witness a freak: the faller.

Deep between the years

The history of this moment
Parallel in all decision recharted
A final glance revealed
Chimerical, each flight through dazzling entry

Urgent not to be left alone
Buried, the skies peel from their gaze
Criminal to walk out each square and peg

Lost beyond inner butterfly of space
Leaping circus rings and beast wrangled
The last bastion of you to me

Free without a second
The birth or uncovering 
Falling deep between the years

When An Angel Cries

When an Angel does cry
There is no blue in the sky
The clouds all hover
Exposing a pale gray cover
A sense of sadness fills the air
Somewhere is an Angel in despair

A call to all Angels from near and far
Calling all Angels, wherever they are
Gather together at the pearly gates
That’s where an Angel in despair waits
Spread your wings and hold this Angel near
All of the Angels fly together to dry each tear

Within the power of uplifting prayer
The crying Angel is no longer in despair
With the gathering of Angels to help a loved one
The gray clouds have now gone and uncovered the sun
Peace falls from the Heaven’s and gray skies are now blue
The Angels are now smiling and watching over you

Remember, when an Angel cries
And you see gray skies
Don’t be sad or feel despair
Just close your eyes and say a prayer
The Angels will hear you and their work will be done
Before you know it, you will again see the sun

Humming Bird Dreams

I smile as it seems to be,
 The wind came to play with me.
 For i lay in bed,
 Ill for what seems like forever.
 I cannot move or dance myself,
 So the wind and my dreams dance together.
 I watch as the humming birds made of lace,
 come alive before my eyes.
 I love to watch the sweet caress,
 Of the lacy blinds against the open glass.
 I love to watch as my dreams take me,
 Dancing me out my small window
 To the open land and tall trees,
 To the light in the skies,
 And the smell of the seas.
 I laugh as i slip away into my dreams,
 Now i can dance for myself.

Wondrous wonderings

Sometimes I wonder whether you are just a brilliant illusion my mind has created If so, my darling I must commend my own creativity For if you are a product of my idle mind I wonder what an active one might accomplish I could call you an angel, but why bother when with your fiery eyes you resemble more a devil’s temptation Perhaps an artist’s muse, you are but then again a fool he must be to let you witness this broken world Do you enjoy this, my dear? watching me with that infuriatingly knowing smile as I run frantic, my eyes tired and crazed and paint splatters stretched across my clothes While I try to capture you in this moment with the evening sun like a young bride shyly caressing your figure Sometimes I wonder whether you were a mistake of creation An existence that wasn’t supposed to exist For surely such pure beauty couldn’t be mine to behold Your passion like a fallen leaf awaits a gentle breeze (of time) till it floats away leaving the nude soil behind tainted by your memory

Remnants of a Plague

suffering is but a consequent
a choice long ago once made
from infancy till senescence
a remnant of a ne’er dormant
plague spawned by guiltless
desire’s self-centered shame

paradise’s birthplace of evil
a novel thought lost in time
yet ever-present in the mind
an aforesaid learned whisper
in silence borne o’er aeons
its sentient purpose known

living manifested darkness
humanity’s forgetful curse
resplendent beauty hidden
shrouded in evil’s affright
yet temptation’s revelation
witnessed its woeful plight

e’er secretive shining one
Dante’s inferno yet waits
Megiddo’s final judgment
miscreant demonic voices
freedom’s unseen enemies
ne’er again shall be revived

alight

i see an angel 
you light up
in a faraway distance
hope shines
silent whispers
rustling in the trees

a white rose
walking a beautiful path
filled with sweet blossoms
chosen as we speak
enchanting spells
 light within a life
the curtains 
begin to raise
out of nowhere 
like a dream

i begin talking
beautiful words again
the path begins changing
each and every 
single day

i found a lighthouse
the goal remains
one aim to hold
the hands
in the golden mittens
a treasure 

a gem sparkling 
in so much beauty
wearing the crown
a princess
sparkling within
 the eyes beautiful

holding the soul
mirror of the heart
to kiss the frog
i would give to you
the moon

as i hold your hands
in golden mittens
two stars shining
heaven's light
souls connected
in one spark

within jeopardy's reach 
rolling water 
runs down 
The face changes 
blood hounds kiss red 
the beast ravishing inside hunger 

Rising warm burning 
within each and every beat 
one star gazing beauty 
invading desires burn 
sizzling hot 
with sweet raw 
dazzling passion 
every word sparkles 
with a smile 

Howling into 
the dark space 
in a clear night sky 
wishing lonely 
in this dream 
staring upon 
a full 
pale white moon face 
in distant thoughts smiling 

I would darling 
sweetheart lay 
my life 
down honey 
for only 
you my love 
Leaving the soul 
in your 
capable hands 
walking inside 
the garden 

Holding us together 
forever young and free 
blooming always to you 
Petals softly glow 
warming enchanting magic 
Swept away I am 
on a celestial breeze 
in an after space bliss 
Heaven is in your arms 

Sweet baby you're an angel 
leaving an army of kisses 
safely under your pillow 
each one to kiss every last single dream 
so perfectly true 
shining such light on only you love

Gravity of Change

In my dreams you once were there
Side by side you and I both sat.
Too many questions flooded my mind
Yet nothing was more important
Than seeing your smile once more.
Can you see what we have become?
I wanted to know you still care;
Wanted to believe you still remember.

Those moments that we once shared,
Times when we talked and laughed.
Have you forgotten who I'am?
Can you still recall who you were?
When you look down from heaven
Are we the one's you search for?
Are we still what you remembered;
Or did we changed like everything else.

I sat there thinking about all of those;
And he just looked at me and smiled.
He stood like someone I don't know.
He was my father but he was not.
Change draws everything towards it
Like gravity pulls all at it's center.
No one can escape, but one can choose.
Who you are is all up to your choice.

That was all he said as he stood.
He touched my face with his palm,
Then he was gone like he never was.
Once again I was left with nothing.
So much I wanted to say to him,
So many questions I should've asked;
And yet I spoke not a single word,
But he knew and answered everything.

the match stick sage

the match stick
Well if you are an Indian by birth, yes you guessed him,
Saint though by birth, he let any issue just burn to ashes,
Dear friends, do not worry he is not an antagonist nor a proto,
Yet he plays a major role,
in each character of Hindu mythological world.
And is the sole cause of the
Sri Mahavishnu's dasavatara, shall say.

With a tanpura in his hand, singing hymns, prayers and other songs,
In the act of devotion to lord Vishnu, a sage wise yet mischievous,
Creating Vedic litterateurs, most clashes, between Vishnu and his devotees,
You all know his audacity to screw Hiranyaksha and Hiranyakasipu
The two loyal guards of lord lord Maha Vishnu.

He is said a great muni or rishi not for his penance alone,
but for the the benefit of man, as his name means.
'Nara' means man, and 'da' means benefit,
He spoke as gossip to create troubles at bad times,
But the end results being good.
In his eagerness to protect the righteous
And punishing the wicked,
A messenger who added a little
Of ghee to make matters worse.

His discussions are found in Chandogya upanishad and Pashcaratra literature.
To the lay men known only as the sage who created problems,
In words a match stick, which just requires a scratch,
Is a first order musician, well versed in all veda's and Upanishads
Of all the sama veda, the veda of music,
A student of the  Sanaka, Sanandana, Sanatana, and Sanat Kumara
the four mind born sons of the great Brahma,
the first jounalist on  earth,as bhagavat purana says,
is the son of of a maid, parentage a bramhin and a low caste lady,
who after the death of his mother went in search of absolute truth
worshiped lord vishnu until the day of his death,
was given the blessing though he would die shall be in the upanishads
still alive,

WHEN ANGELS COME

When angels come,
they are only seen
by babies and very
young children, soon
to be forgotten. And
sometimes those who
are good at heart
will encounter angels
who look so human
yet....

When angels sing, 
their choirs sing
with choirs human,
and both can be
heard in heaven
as on earth. Or
an angel's song 
may be a ballad
in an Irish pub.

When angels weep...
they weep far more
for our loss of joy
than sins committed,
their quiet tears
for love omitted.

When angels laugh,
they laugh at the king who
holds tight to his throne
and find humorous the 
rich man who owns, but
laugh the most at the
materialist who proudly says,
 "Clearly, angels cannot exist!"

That gets them
rolling in the
endless aisles
of heaven.

Endlessly

Drifting endlessly,
   Into the night I go

Above my head a ribbon wide
   Of light from distant glow

"We've come by way"
   Soft voices say
"Of the galaxy of dreams"

"And on this night, within this light,
   We trust you shall obey,

Behold the canopy of stars 
   From which we do descend,

No calendar can rule,
   No dream a man befool

Behold, your waning spirit calls,
   We bid you soon depart

Aspire to the heavens high,
   The fervor of your heart"

My Angel

My Angel,
You dried my eyes when they were wet,
You were by my side no matter what,
When I was in pain and misery,
You gave me strength and harmony
When I felt ugly and in the dark,
You fed me beauty and gave me luminosity
You opened  my eyes to see the world
You held out your hand for me to hold
You are my Angel and the better half of me
You are my Angel and I love you dearly!

*dedicated to all those I've lost*

BELIEVE

The Angels have not forsaken mankind, mankind has forgotten them.

Many souls have let in the evil of greed, of hate take over their hearts.

Closing out the light.

Wandering in the darkness.

If you listen you can hear the songs of the Angels in the wind.

If you open your eyes you can see them among the clouds.

They are with us, their forms sometimes a flashing shadow.

Yet we don't take notice.

We can hear their whispers.

Yet so many forget to listen.

Re-open your hearts.

Re-open your mind.

Revel in the warmth, as peace, love travels through your being.

Feel the love of acceptance within their embrace.

Accept their advice.

Heed their warnings.

Ask the questions and soon a knowing will be felt.

For here they stay.

They watch.

They listen.

They protect.

Let the Angels stop their waiting.

Call to them.

Invite them into your heart.

Fears that lives within will be diminished.

Just BELIEVE.

I Love You Alyona

(My brother asked me to post his poem here. Its his love poem to his girlfriend [soon-to-be fiancée]
So please tell me what you think) 

When people say I can't imagine
A world with out you to one another. 
I don't think they fully understand the words. 
I've never felt my heart beat so calmly before. 
Your touch, your voice your eyes. 
They are my escape. 
They are my support. 
The fact that you exists makes me feel so alive. 
It's easier to breathe. 
To walk, to talk, to feel, 
To truly love. 
You are the electrical pulse that keeps my heart beating. 
You are the sun I see every morning. 
You are the moon I gaze on every night. 
And as every day and night pass. 
I become more of you. 
It's hard to explain. 
I don't think there were words ever created 
To explain the feeling I'm trying to get across. 
They only came up with one word. 
Love. 
I love you? No. 
That's to small of an expression than what I feel towards you.
But until I find something new. 
Something more fitting. 
I will tell you I love you every day and night I live. 
I'll call you beautiful with every breath I have in my lungs. 
I will never let you feel any less than what you deserve to feel. 

You don't have my heart. 
You are my heart 
And I can't live with out you. 
I love you baby. 
I love you Angel. 
I love you Alyona!!!

Work of Art

Clearly defined by
Remarkable lines and figures that
Surrounds color, which
Gives off tones
Soft and hard
Evenly masked
I stare

What is this I find my eyes hard to shift from?
With Picasso and Leonardo
To my left and my right
I assume the picture in front of me is Starry Night
Because all I see are stars in my eyes
But I realize it's not.

The picture in front of me is far more worthy
There are no blues,
There are no yellows,
Just even shades of brown
Illuminating a glorious presence
In my eyes

The image chase my thoughts
And now I'm breathless
I'm left still and a fixated
Never another to have left me feeling this way
I must say
You are simply a work of art.

I remember the day Billy was skipping down the sidewalks
Hey Billy ,what’s up You seem exuberantly Happy today
After ten years Irene is no longer barren, I’m going to be a father
It’s a Girl ,a gift from heaven , a Princess, a heavenly Angel
This is my daughter, my existence, my future Angel Maria Avery
The whole town watched the proudest Papa carrying his Angel 
Door to door ; Here’s your mail this is my daughter Angel Maria
The years went on : Angel an Angel  growing in Daddy’s heart
Sweet sixteen, Learner’s Permit in hand “Daddy can I drive?”
How could he say no ; To the Supermarket and right back home
Check your mirrors, adjust your seat , Seatbelt; and let’s go slowly
How am I doing Daddy, suddenly a thud, Daddy I hit a dog, panic
She hit’s the gas instead of the brakes: the oak tree didn’t move
Billy woke up ;something warm running in his eyes; ANGEL
She lay there covered in blood, Her cell phone; 981 Damn
My fingers are to big for these tiny numbers 911 Dispatch
What is Your emergency, My daughter and I have been in an accident
Is she conscious, No: Is she breathing :I don’t know I can’t move my legs
The Ambulance is on the way. ANGEL, ANGEL, A N G E L!!

Angel That is You

Oh, how I dreamed of seeing.
Oh, how I desired of seeing.
Something so beautiful.
As the Angel that is you.

For the first time,
in a very long time.
I got a glimpsed.
Of the Angel that is you.

Your beauty aglow,
like nothing I've ever seen.
It was so radiant,
that the stars themselves became jealous. 

For I was honored.
When you smiled at me.
I held onto it,
Like a gift from the above.

For one time in my life.
Can I say. 
That I finally saw,
an Angel smile.

The Angel That is You.

DEMONS and ANGELS - The Battle

Darkness,
Demons 
Everywhere. 

Lightness, 
Angels 
in the square. 

The battle begins. 
The angels sit still. 
The demons swoop down, 
Go in for the kill.

They scream and squawk. 
Their coming near. 
The angels sit still. 
Without any fear. 

The demons dive down. 
Their aim is exact.
They reach the angels,
and make contact

Then sparks fly and flames roar..
around the angels,
they made their score.

Then the angels step out of the fire and flames, 
Not a hair on there head has been rearranged.

They lift up their wings. 
A soft wind begins to blow. 
Then a beautiful light from within them 
Begins to glow.

The demons are blinded by this beautiful light.
Their body’s are melting they can’t put up a fight.

The angels are floating and watching them fall 
Now they are teaching us all..

When evil is confronted from the light that’s within 
It will outshine it, cause LOVE makes us win.

Angel of Sleep

I am angel of sleep,
I am convoy of
peace,
I worship the
practice rooted very
deep
I cast spells on
your eyelids.
I spread magic dusts
of solemnity,
I erase the pains of
humanity,
I tear up the
scrolls of stress
Amid such death
race!
I am the permanent
strain on work,
I coax you into
sleepwalk;
I am an envelope of
serenity,
I am an open letter
to tyranny.
I bestow you some
rest,
I want to keep you
ahead.
I won’t let you get
lost,
In of life’s
merry-go-round.
I am invisible ink
on your eyes,
I won’t let your
dreams die,
I want you to touch
nap’s vibe.
I want you people to
shine,
After waking up from
lullaby’s chime,
I blot your tears of
agony,
I upset the hymns of
monotony,
In my world anytime
is naptime,
You can traverse the
sands of time,
After taking a
little nap.

I miss you

It's been hard.
Two years and the pain is still paralyzing.
I think about the fact I'll never be able to hold you,
or the fact I'll never be able to say I love you.
To comfort you when you cry
To help you through your hard times. 
Two years ago, 
I would have held you in my arms.
I would have loved you more than life itself.
But In my world,
My reality,
you're gone.
I miss you. 


RIP A.E.P.O.
(in remembrance of my daughter)

she talks to angels

She talks to angels but what is she speaking? What are the prayers she is asking 
for,the mystery that the remains the question i ask. Dont understand the 
mystery of her actions is it a test of will to morals is a test of the music that has 
plagued our brains well not our brains in general but mine more than anything. 
Still the song continues songs unite us in new ways bring new memories new 
vibes to life. Still its new life to my soul new oxygen to my blood ironic due to the 
fact blood is the color of my mood till recently. Not the same as things as i have 
felt before but still similar to mind games of the past. Still a fool for the challenge 
a fool for soul in healing i have been a healer for many years similar to my counter 
parts. Still i am more accepting to my curse of karma. A healer is a man of 
different color all together. Denial courage hope who really knows i have wrote 
this before on the walls that burn slowly around us the walls that hold the vulture 
perched among us.Still more surround us I cant ignore in my writings. The term 
thick as thieves been throwed around over the years thick as thieves the thieve is 
a solo artist in the acts of there surroundings an act of there own individuality 
looking out for numbero uno so to speak. No thieves are thick just thick in the 
pockets of there hell they create. The evil does not win the bad times out weight 
the good it will end. PIss off enough people some one will stand weather it be in 
anger violence or speech in there own matters..j.h.g

But a whisper part 2

                                            But a Whisper                                                                                                          
                                                           Part 2
                                  (From the Mothers perspective)
In my minds’ eye this life that I see, Is my very own son upon my knee.
A special angel my heart does breathe. A gift from heaven above 
a touch of heaven God shared with me, a gift of his infinite love.
For many, many, months I’ve thought of how your life will be 
and I really kinda hope you look a lot like me.
I’ve thought about your first year of life there’s not much for you to do.
Oh but how that’s gonna change as soon as you turn two.
I’ve bought bats and balls and a little stick horse all kinds of things you won’t need till your four.
I see Kool-aid kisses and a bubble gum smile to get a cowboy hug, I would walk for miles.
In my minds’ eye I just can’t help it I want you to have it all.
At least that’s what I think God wanted when he gave me a Mothers call.
I’ve given this a lot of thought, I don’t know what to do.
I’ve got this feeling in my heart, the world’s not ready for you.
Now I’ve shared a special moment with you that can only come from the heart,
And since that heart belongs to God I know we’ll never part.
You’ve brought me much joy in this little span of time if it wasn’t on your face, I’d say your smile was mine.
You are the answer to all my wishes. You’ve made my dreams come true.
I thank heaven for blessing me, by giving me time with you.
In my minds’ eye I kiss you but a moment, a lifetime in a flash.
Although I knew you but a whisper forever your memory will last.

An Ear That Will Listen

They walk through the doors
Of a city so barren
A walkway so cracked
And the wind it's so cold

Jump over the mountain
Get lost in the forest
Get treated like cargo
And swallow some pills

Is it you in the corner
With those chattering teeth
With pants that don't fit you
Shoelaces untied

Was it you I heard screaming
With nightmares uncounted
And the violence within you
It's a fight you didn't start

Lord send us an angel
With a knack for compassion
And an ear that will listen
To the mentally ill

Angels Weep , Love Endures

 Angels Weep , Love Endures

Gentle are the ways of your loving steps and dances
 a softness that make the angels weep in unison
A voice you sing me into rapture and peace with always
 wonderful it's appeal and glowing it's light, 
   shine softly the glow , forever and a night

Look not away from our mirrored ever-loving embrace
 fly with me into a sweet and sizzling naked heat
A night awaits our entrance into another magical realm
 the aroma of the moment will soothe our souls
  the breaking of morn will find us never apart

Words of Inspiration:

There was once a man who believed he had everything
Everyday he was blessed with the gift of wisdom
For every wise tale he was given a proverb
For every proverb he was given a vision
For every vision he was given a dream

In one of his dream the man saw an angel at the foot of his bed
The angel pointed at the door
At the doorway the man saw a bright shinny light and heard a deep hallow voice

The voice echoed words of great knowledge and inspiration
Written and quoted by great men and women
Martin Luther King Jr.
" The Ultimate measure of a man is not where he stands in moments of comfort 
   and convenience but where he stands at times of challenge and controversy"

Anne Frank.
" I don't think of all the misery but of all the beauty that still remains" 

Aldons Huxley.
" Experience is not what happens to you it is what you do
  with what happens to you"

David Guys Powers.
" Each day is a new life seize it, live it"

Michelle C Ustaszeski.
" Never look back and regret look back and smile at what you have learned"

Dr Robert Anthony.
" Forget about all the reasons why something may not work
  you only need to find one reason why it will"

The man rose from his bed and fell to his knees and whispered words of thanks
For a moment he had forgotten the reason why he had been chosen
For every season for every rose for every seed that is planted there is a reason

In the distance the voice whispered life has many roads
That takes you in many directions but the journey is worthwhile
because the experiences are worth sharing and whenever you feel like giving up
remember why you are here.

Welcome Back

Hey, God.
I haven't spoken to you since.... the incident.
When you took my great grandma home.
People tell me to trust you again and go back to normal.
To me. back to normal was when I had my ge ge by my side everyday
Despite the distance.
I come to you wanting to be held again.
I've been through many things in the past year.
You took my brother and my aunt home.
Who else is left?
You snatched many people from my life and put new people in
It's sad to say, they couldn't fill the void in my heart.
You gave me my first love
And then took it away.
I guess you had something better in mind.
Then other relationships bloomed then disappeared.
Finally,
You brought an angel into my life and he is the most beautiful man I met.
My other angels crowd around me building me up
 Instead of tearing me down
My relationship with my mother was restored
And so were many others.
You gave me more tests and I handled a few of them well after the 15th chance you've given me to fix them
I think I'm finding my way
Even at a slow pace.
My wall is still up between us at times.
I'm still afraid to trust you.
People at church say, " The only person who you can ever turn to is the Lord."
I'm fixing my mistakes
and finding my ways
and trying to stay in contact with you.
I can't let this slip away because this is what I grew up with.
Loving you, praising you, and enjoying my Sundays as if they were new.
So, don't fret because here I come.
Welcome me back with open arms

Fixed Suns Moons

An unkept memory within our restless lives
Undone curtains and an ever wilting sun
What you are, is what I have been
Our pasts together, a living sin
I hide in the open as the tides begin to slip in
I have whispered the words of love
Waiting for the very minute for a friendship to begin

As world fold and the smallest of universes become
Tanted and bold, it's the lace of the burhap
That slowly is becoming cold
The wind whips and the border becomes crisp
There is where my memory is old
Right under the tange of the fold
Thank you so much, I wonder
If you knew it was the tin
Caught in the tear of where I have been

Handful Of Stars

Handful of stars
Washes over my face
Putting a sparkle in my eyes
Sees clearly for the first time
Cutting through the darkened shadows
That clutters the mind
The depths of despair
Slowly leaves the pain behind
Bringing smiles from an angel
Caressing my heart with love

Handful of stars
Washes over my face
Putting a sparkle in my eyes
Filling me with grace

Abused

The beautiful girl that lives down the street
The one that has bruises from being beat. 
Her heart is frail, she’s lost all hope, 
Her moms new boyfriend hits her to cope.
She’s limping because this nasty man
Where her mother is is unknown
Her eyes are scared and full of fright
because she is afraid to be alone.
The bruises started yellowing.
She was in much pain.
The tears fell down her little face
And outside it began to rain.
At school she was a quiet one.
No one knew her name.
The teachers, they said nothing
Even though they saw her pain.
One day when we watched the news
a picture of a familiar face
I felt the tears build
With greatest sadness and despair
It said that she was killed.
Loud tears filled my home
As I thought of that little girl
Who now would never see
Her future in this world.

We Needed you and You were there

We Needed you and You were there 
 
We cried the tears You wipe them away 

We were confused and You cleared our hearts

We were afraid and You came right back for us

And held us up and gave us strength 
 
And showed us how You love us
 
You gave us strength to stand against evil

To face the world  in our LIFE with You

You put us up in the light from the dark

So high that we could almost see eternity

You showed us why we need You 
 
We can not believe it's really You

We can not believe it's really true

We needed you  and you were always there
We will never leave You Lord

Because we finally found the One who really cares

You help us  when were wary

When we are lost  You protect us 

You gave us hope  when we were at the end

You turned our lives  back into truth again

You even call us brother and sister

We needed You and You were there  
Thank you Lord for being there
We are now there for You 
AMEN!!

When I Seen Blood

When I Seen Blood
Kiara Lebel

Bro
I yelled, BRO
Hold on we’re almost there

Breathe slow
Relax your eyes
Stay still

Pain

Don’t speak
Look into my eyes
I’m not leaving, they’re almost here

Strength

Grasp my hands
Stay close to my heart
I see the glistening in your eyes, don’t cry

Confusion

Lie back
Keep still
God won’t take you

Hesitation

And I remember you whisper “Bro I wouldn’t wanna do nothin like this with nobody else”
I seen a tear shed from you, and that’s when my chest tightened
Don’t say goodbyes, you’re gonna be okay

Lost

You’re breathing slower
You’re eyes are closing
And you’re not moving at all now

Horror

My heart is pounding, you taught me so much
Please don’t go
And the last thing you whispered was “You my lil bro, get out this life cause it ain’t for all of us.”

Dead.

Now you’re gone
I’m here with our memories, memories that are forever
When I seen blood, is when I became a soldier

Rest In Paradise, bro

Swan Song

      SWAN SONG
I am the miner of your gold,
the spinner of your tale,
and so the weaver of your dream.
I come and go.

These are the final days for me,
all manner of phrophesy must be,
my trial and tribulation,
earth shaking in diver's places,
famine and destruction,.
and son has risen up to slay the Father,

The time is here.
In night I walk with you,
where as a child you could see the stars,
the moonlight so real it made you cry,
but you are not there, 
I walk alone with you.

Night has no dark on desert sand,
where such a moon has the glow.
You have replaced all of this beauty
with the dream,
in a land where no moonlight exists,
in a land where stars hide
behind corruption and polution,
in a land where all dream ends
in a nightmare of disappointment.

I am your weaver of dream,
the spinner of your tale,
and I will make your dream come true.
Then I must go.

Loveless Dreams Lead To This Darkness I'm becoming

The one who wanted a Love from his dreams
Went to deep in the fight for the right to be King
As he rose so high to the castle in the sky
To his surprise The Lord was not inside
Only a sickness that estinguished his flame
And took the Dream he had
Right out of his name
The Nighttime Daydreamer
Was taken by a plague
As he could no longer
Find his peace in the day
They all watched him fade
As his Love disappeared
Becoming The Darkness
That he had beaten through the years
He just sat helplessly
And watched his heart break
to mask his growing pain
He followed the white snake
Right back into the Garden Of Eden
But there was no Eve
For The Darkness had decieved him
Right into a deadly temptaion
He had no escape
There was only one way in
To succumb to The Darkness
Which he ultimatly became
that was how The Dreamer Of Nighttime died in name
For he could dream no more
He was now a monster he called Darkness
The night his Love walked out the door.

Angel in Disguise

As murky clouds filled the celestial skies,
I saw an angel descending in disguise.
She smiled at me so stunningly, my conscious mind flee.
Oh, she is a beauty so rare for the world to see.
 
She gazed upon me; she had me drowned in her tiger-like eyes.
Her smile so ravishing, her hair like golden silk; worthy to idolize.
She talked with the voice of a mellow trombone, and sang like a violin.
Words like a choir singing or that of birds chirping,
Came from her sweet tender lips like cherries blooming.
 
And at the break of dusk, she is like the beautiful sunset,
With the ravishing smile and sweet tender lips.
Her skin glows like the moon at night and her eyes glimmers so bright.
She is the empress of my heart, so enchanting a beauty to withhold.
 
She is indeed an angel in disguise- beneath the serene earth,
Or high above the majestic skies.
She is blessed with tranquility, an angelic star-
She brings me joy and romance even when she is afar.

This Loneliness is Killing Us

Why are you a deep shade of sad-blue?
I’m feelin’ oh so unsure…reflect on me like a crystal-clear mirror . . .  

I’ve been by your side for so long…I’ve been waiting on the other 
side for so long
Where have you been for so long? Are you some kind of impious, devious 
devil?

Give it your all…x3
Nightfall x3
Hear me as I call
Feeling lonely…
We have wept forlornly . . .
We’re not insane…
I’ll remain sane…
Hear me answering your call…x3 as I answer your call
Give it your all x3
Nightfall x3
Hear me as I fall…..
I’ve been there, done that –
I was that lonely, black cat…
You just gottah snatch that rat
Just stand tall…
Set us free from captivity…
Loneliness puts us in chains of vanity…
Be strong and bright forevermore
gaily soar with me some more
Give it your all…
Give it all your energy & be brave…
Give it your strength…catch us before we fall!
Give it your best…God, there’s billions of souls to save!
Give it your all…
Be strengthened by being near a friend’s side
Abide in His light…
Be positive with all of your might
fly like a peculiar bat,
Taking flight in the ebony sky –
there’s a time to explore
search for hope in store
On our own, all alone
soon, we’ll be happy instead…
we will not be doused in dread
But, together, we’ll shower down healing rain
We’ll feed the hungry people w-with bread
Everyone feels lonely at some point…
but, our bones won’t get out of joint
Flames of uncertainty devour us…
ruining our self-esteem…
I’ll fix your broken dream
But, you gottah get up and try…
Don’t cry…you won’t die . . .
We’re in the same, boisterous bus –
we’re on each other’s team…
don’t weep, don’t scream
You need hope in mind to spread your wings and fly
Stand tall…
Give it your all…
Graze in your own maze…
Spell-bound in a graceful gaze…
Seeking God’s praise…
Catch me before I fall…
Hear us as we call! ~
Give it your all though I’ve left you…
Without a trace…without a trace…
Don’t fall on your face…keep your pace
Give in to your strength…
GIVE IT YOUR ALL…
Though you’ve been tossed to and fro…(I know you’re feeling low)
Here and there…in all directions…like a children’s ball
Let your inner inspiration glow and grow .   .      .         .           .                  .                      
.
(Let your optimistic spirits show….
Unveil yourself…get out of your shell, you know?
Get out of your comfort zone
We’re on our own, but never, ever alone
You’re stronger than you realize
You’re the one and only that I prize
You’re not alone…
You’re not a broken bone
You’re not a failure…
Your future ain’t a blur…why are you a deep shade of sad-blue?
Though you’re left without a single, little clue…that’s for sure)

You left me hanging on the last string – you shed a sad tune on my song You let my tragedy sting…sing to me…come on, sing to me your lullaby, darling angel! ! !
Though you’re left without a single, little clue… Have you found your other shoe?

Eyes of an Angel

It was the Eyes of Angel,
that cast it's eyes on me
For this angel had come to show me,
what I could not see
You see, I could no longer hear, nor could I see
All of the destruction I had created around me
And as I gazed into these Eyes of an Angel,
I began to feel something deep down inside
A peaceful, comforting feeling, one I can hardly describe
Some say it was the Holy Spirit, sent from up above
Sent to remind me, guide me, and let me Feel his love
I'll never forget those Eyes of an Angel, sent from up above
For now I know what this angel had come to show me
It was God's Eternal Love

I will for you

When you fall I will pick you up
when you thirst I will fill your cup

when you wander through the dark
I'll lead your path, I'll light your spark

when troubles come to fill your brain
I'll make you feel a little less insane

if you allow me into your mind
that invitation won't be declined

if you feel you've lost yourself
I will restore your mental health

if you feel you are on the brink
I will clear your mind so you can think

if you need me, call my name out loud
I'll search you out through any crowd 

I'm here for you, whatever you may need
because you have never shown me greed

man is no angel

Tested I men and women 
For their honest mind 
None is above 
Every one is found to swing 
In and around selfish line 

No more I test 
As I came to know 
No man is an angel 
Every one is bestowed with flaws 
One or the   other 

Men are very sharp 
When they scan others 
But to find a fault or two
 In him or her 
They all turn dull 
And stunningly ridiculous. 

The rage against hypocrisy 
Has been forever gone 
Men with faults 
No matter how big or small 
Now I welcome them all.

Oh Come Children of God

Oh Come Children of God

Come long expected children of God,
Born to set your brothers and sisters free;
our fears and sins have been released from us,
Let us know our rest and peace is in God..

With the spiritual strength and consolation,
Hope and love to all people You are;
Our desire for every people,
The joy of every loving heart.

Born to God His people to be delivered,
Born a child is born to be King,
He is to set us free, to reign in our lives ever,
How Your gracious kingdom will bring.

By Your own eternal Spirit heaven on earth,
The guide in all our hearts forever:
My life is complete and my heart is true ,
Raise us to Your glorious throne. AMEN!!. 

All passers by to Jesus come nearer to Him,
We utter the cry, AS gives His ear,
From earth He will retrieve you as He puts out His hand;
Now to receive you, He graciously stands.

If any one Believe in Him, Then happy we would be,
The vilest and worst can come unto Him,
You may drink of my Spirit, as I am the only one,
Your claim to my love, And take as your own.

Whomever receives His life-giving word,
Believes in Jesus as their God and their Lord,
In them a pure river Of life shall flow,
As in the believer will Spring up to the skies.

Our God and our Lord just call us and we will obey,
My heart soul is on Your word Of promise I will stay,

Guardian Angel

He holds her silently, he holds her close, he's there even though she never know. He takes away her stress; he takes away her pain, he takes her away from the world, she feels loved again. When people come and take him away, she is lost and scarred every day. Her hope of him is fading, her fear and heartache is growing. She misses his touch, she misses his kisses. Her angel holds her while she cries, her angel steadies her and holds her when she tries. He knows she hurts, he knows he's gone but he's been there, he's been there all along. She can't see him in the dark or in the light, but she feels her angel holding her day and night. "No need to worry, no need to fear, you may not see me, but I am here." He whispers as he kisses her head while she lays soft and dreaming in her bed.

Planet Dizzy Continues

Expensive addiction, this thing called TV, 
like a zombie I become when I sit upon
my brown plush sofa.
Beside me my little dog Dizzy rolls her 
eyes as she thinks to herself, "Here goes another boring day,
my mom won't get up off her fat behind and play - no my mom
always has an excuse like the medicines she has to take make her
too tired, or that the weather is too hot or too cold, might as well
stay in.
So here we sit and I watch her watch one show, and then the next,
often she does this as she stuffs her face saying that her blood sugar
would get too low if she did not eat.
Sometimes she even watches Doctor OZ if one of her other shows 
are not on, and my mom will sit there paying close attention to all 
he says even while stuffing herself with a PB&J.  She says I will 
get to that healthier routine right away...
Then there are times she will stop watching TV just enough 
to look around the house at the chores that are waiting to be done, 
then she adjusts the volume on the clicker and shrugs her 
shoulders, meaning that she is putting off the chores for another 
time, for  another day.
I do get her to take me for walks after I lay upon her shoulders 
and lick her face into submission, oh don't worry she spoils me 
beyond compare and that' why slowly but surely I am getting her 
to take each day much more seriously.  I tell her to not waste time, 
let's go out and play, get what needs to be done out of the way!
She call me a Jesus dog, a little furry angel with invisible wings.  
Well all I have to say to that... It's possible!"

Minds eye

I see you.
How do my eyes focus on such beauty?
When I look my soul feels at home.

Your soul is guiding mine.
This is where you show me my path,
My destiny shines down from the stars.
It's true, I am always here, this place.
I have always been here with you, my love.
I see you.
I will remember the truth when I wake,
But you say its not mine to recall.
It's for my heart, soul and conscience.
I see you when I wake.
My soul mate, my angel, the love of my life.
I remember you and the love we share,
The rest is written in our hearts.
I see you.

Hardcore satanists

world wars your mongering for
the big satanic bloodbath
more appealing to god
then two homosexual men
The devil may cry
my favorite angel facing a feat of unequal measure
since you know soo much about him
live it everyday
you never let him live this down
just work on making yourselves miserable
you look soo happy that way
words you read by the best
your own walking contradiction
so caught up in getting what you want at anycost
you forgot what he wanted
and there is a price to pay
signed yourself up for a fight that isnt yours
the rules you live by
they are enforced
you cant scramble away from this fast enough
the lie you live for power
lesser of two evils presented to you
path of least resistance corners you again
sing yourself to suicide ever soo sweetly
the shortest straw has no alibi
and i think its funny
Jesus has some truth to tell him
slip the witch a missing letter
she doesnt mind bringin him back to life
even the devil you know
splattered all over your pages
the philosophy you seem to live everyday
offered you a short term power
and we just throw you away
came to get my favorite angel
something youve been denying yourself the whole time
trivial pursuit of endless lies manipulating yourselves this way is such a shame
now i'm not obligated to help you
you had a choice
the game of life you signed up for is coming round again
faster than you think
your underground rivalry of seeking after power
i paid the devil to see if you would make this mistake
then you did and i agreed he could do the dirty work in jesus name
the truth will get you in karmic laws you forgot about
threefolds of being humbled
and humbled and humbled again
wont even help you, you cant get away
hardcore satanists dressed up as saints messing up their own destiny
did the world not tell you
life is a test?
you were tested
you failed
the devil was in on it
enjoy your bloodbaths of endless wars in hell
the world kept this under rug swept
and now for you there is no way out
paid the devil for me
and jesus will eventualy set him free from the you he doesnt want
your not fathoming this properly
jesus was tortured so you wouldnt be
the letter gone missing
now whose got a face to blame
hardcore satanists
my favorite angel loves me
he wouldnt allow me to live this nightmare
so hes taking you far far away

-and see that my sweet angel fly on a goodness of flight
and pure white heavenly fury;
as I see her go,
my hearts tears in two,
my eyes start to water,
emotions run ramped and scurry around like wild dogs
under a moonlit twilight sky looking for a bone.

See to it that my sweet angel goes fairly,
for the love we shared would be wasted,
if she go too soon and fast-
Love is powerful, and it can tear a man apart,
but if he loves in his heart he shall feel for another!

See to it that my love,
she is fine with another,
and that she is loved better than with I,
and make her smile every passing moment of sun and moon alike;
don't let her cry,
don't let her moan,
don't let her pout,
but let her live smiling and tender loving,
and let her live life being loved.

For she is my loving angel,
and I cannot see her wings clipped for amusement,
and brushed bones for souvenirs.
Let her be strong,
let her be herself and be most loved for that quality.
Most importantly- let her be appreciated-

into the end

I don't know were to start ,I'll start out by saying am glad your my friend,
I know how much you love when I make you smile,especially when I make you laugh,
I wish you could stick around when it becomes silent and the laughs goes away,
Would you still love me when am no longer beautiful and young? 
Would you still kiss me ,when my lips lose there taste, 
Would you stick up for me ,when I lose my strength
Would you gide me if I ever become blind?
What about if I get lost in your eyes,would you hold my hand and take me to your heart?
I would do all this for you,
if you were in comma I would stay by your side day and night,
And to wake you up I would sing to you,I would draw in the sky saying I miss you,hopefully God sees it and sends you back to me,don't worry if you fall from heaven I'll catch you,you can land in my heart,
I once told my self don't close the book,just turn the page, I'll be a good lover and a best friend,
So would you be with me into the end?

angel 2

during talking to this young lady 
i looked on her quiet fondly as a friend
still stunned when she kissed me
i stepped back with shock
yet looking at her in a softened heart
i felt for her looking into her eyes i said
stop sweetheart as i looked at her 
inside i was crying 
so long since i heard them words 
i love you
putting both hands on her face
saying looking into her eyes 
you are so very sweet
she never saw inside what them words meant
i saw in her eyes hurt 
feeling so ashamed 
i hugged her saying
never give your feelings away
so easily to a man you barely know
you began pleading 
saying you knew me for ages
it was only in the space of shopping
i felt ever so bad 
wishing the ground to swallow me
so much going on in one's head 
finding it hard to cope
then you began telling me 
that for months you had been watching me
as we spoke once a week on the rare occasion twice
always smiling sometimes 
coming up behind me 
playfully giving me a fright then laughing
all this time i saw you as a friend
during the conversation
she began telling me
each time i entered the shop
she got butterflies
i felt so sad heart touched
honestly did not know what to say
beyond flattered
at that moment i felt broken hearted
i did not want to hurt her
she began saying you are always so nice 
i love speaking to you 
waiting and hoping to see you each we
smiling lost for words
each time after shopping
always headed to her till
she always smiled beautiful
each time she saw me even 
among'st a crowd 
her look would single me out 
at the time one never noticed
to wrapped up in everything else in my life
there was no room within 
my heart that time
to let you in
in fact i love the company
inside emotion 
i shut completely down
flattered she kissed me again
honestly it tasted beautiful
i stopped her
deep within the mind one was hurting
with shattered love deep inside
please darling i said
i do not want to hurt you
try to understand my is not right
never mentioning hospitals
making one feel heartless
you began promising me
the very world you live in
inside i could feel a crying emotion
my mind in bits and pieces
barely living walking around 
blind to everyone in my own hurt
the scars were still attached to feelings
of emotion that was not dealt with yet
i was a million miles away in a different space 
now i see a lot clearer this is on story i will write

looking into your eyes
i could see such a beautiful soul
in the passion of innocence
crying out at me
please darling do not make it 
any harder on me
i wish to tell you
only i cannot
sweetheart you are to young
then you began pleading
god help me i thought
the last thing one wanted to do
was hurt someone so sweet
i turned and said 
your my angel 
you just do not know it yet
then you said that your mother
was twenty years older
than your father
whom you said was dead
i sternly said 
in a soft yet clear voice
darling i am not willing to take the gamble
a little annoyed 
looking at me surprised 
when i said find someone
closer to your own age 
i never sweet talked her 
always acted oneself
its you i am interested  she said
thinking to myself 
she knew nothing about me
never mentioning hospitals 
at the time a touchy subject
not anything to do with my past 
i did remember months earlier
her asking if i were single
saying yes as at the time
broken up nearly seven months
the urges were there
but lost all energy and spark
found it difficult trusting
looking at her directly in the eyes
i said to her sweetheart
look at me
i am old enough to be your father
putting my arms around you
giving you a hug
like i would my daughter
ever so gently
please let me go i said 
i do not want to hurt you
it was like you wanted 
never to let go
i braced my arms down 
my sides pushing you 
gently away
for that i am so sorry
i began wishing you 
all the happiness in the world
telling you 
youth is in your favor
then you began promising me a family
this poor little angel
promised me a world
i told all my friends about you 
she said
they all know your age
it does not bother any of them
its like no 
was not the answer
that your heart desired
i do not mean to be cruel
if something were to happen me
it was then you questioned my response
sternly telling me 
that you had told your mother
about me 
in words inside my mind
i was completely shocked
nearly told her about hospital
before you made the move
it was like the eyes 
had been on me for some time
not even knowing
when i was at my lowest
i kissed you on the forehead
like how i would with my daughter
then you began clinging to me
listen i said do not make it any harder
it was then you knew i was saying goodbye

Voice in the Wood

Creaks and crawls....

   the forest speaks its tongue again....

   my wood is sometimes dark and dull,

   Drear, is some shadows near....


There is myst in the night,

   my wood is sometimes ----

   windy-myst voices,

   sometimes,

   it is hushed, 

   and the angels seize not to chatter,

   or it lends itself passing as a ghost

   skulking about the trees ----

   my wood is sometimes


But I shall remember the quiet wood,

   and the angels about their tables,

   and the windy-myst voices,

   and the Voice Who speaks of angels,

   my wood is sometimes....

angel 5

that night looking to the darkness
staring into the night
i begin seeing so much light
within dark searching the skies 
dreaming i was one of the wise men 
beginning to smile at myself
searching for the star 
the one that brought us 
his fathers love
i go indoors 
ten thirty pm looking 
upon my watch 
i make myself a cup of coffee
a nightcap before sleep
dressed and got ready
then went to sleep
zero three twenty am
i look at my watch 
it felt someone had awoken me
i got this feeling someone 
was trying to tell me something
feeling a pang
a lonely pain christmas
it felt someone said
i look around i get the feeling 
someone is telling me what to do
words just flowed into my mind 
like a river i begin apoligising
in a letter
forgiving the past
giving closure in letter
wishing everyone   a happy christmas
very sad someone talked to me i found out
christmas day my mother
said son put your hand on the bible
i thought it a strange request
but i mentioned a few
stories to her
close your eyes
do not be afraid  
she said 
its not a joke 
looking at her face 
just knew she was serious
say the lords prayer she said 
as the heavenly father will point out
who your guardian angel is
put your hands on the bible
before i put my hands on the bible 
it was like i knew who he was
he was a great poet 
writing poems and songs
i opened the bible 
first name jonah i laughed
out loud 
my mother said whats wrong
i said you would not believe this
a month back in the snow 
everything around me was white
on my own 
in the dark of night
firstly i let on i was noahs ark 
i thought to myself rather boring 
swallowed by a whale sounded better
came into my mind
sick in heartache
no i laugh
my mother said to me 
one of the oldest prophets
in the bible
my god she said 
like her eyes dazzled
when she began reading 
what i had written that night 
my guardian angel

Clarity

He offered me his coat, I was cold but declined
draping it over me anyway, what could I do but thank him?
He was now my hero, chilled under the bridge, old and thin

"You aren't like the others I've chanced to find,you're almost clean." I tried to not laugh offered a napkin to wipe smudges off. 
"Are you lost?" I responded in kind

"Are you? Sorry that was immature. 

"Oh no. I have a home, pointing as he helped swipe 
"Up there beneath the traffic roar."
I said "Did you just spit in that?"

Ignored, he went on

"I'd invite you in, but have yet to tidy my quarters,
why aren't you at home being someone's daughter?
Believe me sleep is hard when rush hour races.

"I have a block of government cheese."

I backed away "Oh child, he'd pulled out a knife 
I have no wrong intentions on your life," 
Sliced "Here have some, it's almost fresh, if you please."

I asked, "Are you God?" He just smiled.

and this vrindavan shall in turn look so beautiful and aromatic,

Angels of the Sick

A nurse is an earthly angel.
He has a special gift to help you heal.
With his simple touch and calming voice,
He shows you how much he cares.

A nurse is a very wise person.
When you feel deep distress,
He'll talk to you and sit down for a minute
Trying to make you smile and laugh.

A nurse understands about your feelings.
He won't leave you behind suffering in pain.
In a soft gentle voice he'll say, 
"Come, my friend. Take your medicine."

Mylar Balloons

Unrine bottles piled high while a cascade of piza boxes float near the edge of the pile of garbage. Kings of well regard gather near a train. Scraps of food near by intrigues me but i pass it by for i am in more of a mood for breakfeast. English tea served burning hot fresh and ready for the Irish cream that I add to it feverishly. Serpents scale the wall of my pavilion and yellow lightning strikes fiercely across the autumn sky. Friends of mine regroup and relocate the saber of justice. I plunge my gladius into the beasts back severing the jugular and with no fanfare the devil dies..

Regarding the Lady in Black

She has been seen by many this lady in black
She traverses the land with a story
She is a true servant of the Lord with a message to bring
She speaks of His truth and His glory
Some say she’s a witness
Some say she’s a prophet
I say she is an angel in disguise
For we know in the Holy Word of God it is written,
“You never know when you might be entertaining an angel”
If you see her stop and say hello
Offer her a cup of water
The kindness that you show to the angels will bring you much treasure
This woman of God is truly an angel
Extend your loving kindness to her!

Poisoned Me

Floating about without reason
the intel insufficient
weary of feeling helpless and weak
trust and knowledge extended to you only weakens me farther.
Tainted lies surround me
shadows gather seemingly to destroy me.
Brittle... Fragmented... Have I lost my soul?
Mistakenly I sought my answers in you.
Imprisoned by another fleeting ideal
am I only to be an object forever more?
Bleeding, abandoned, discarded,
a desolate future beckoning to me.
Barely emerging from my tattered shell,
only to encounter once more twisted souls.
Spiralling inwards once again.
Elusive truths pass me by,
so tell me another lie and maybe I'll believe.
Phantoms appear of what could be
shadowed by broken trust, doubt, hesitation.
the poison seeped too far within me
as the darkness comes to collect all that I am
leaving me only to question;
"My God why have you forsaken me?"

Heavenly Fold

Heavenly Fold



Sever not that silver thread that binds you heart to mine
  forget not my great love that set you all a flutter
Never deny the night that sealed our greatest vow
  the eternal love that our blended hearts live in now
   a reality better than good , far greater than fine

Ever resting deeply in our love as the red rose blooms
  sharing all we have to happily give each day of the year
Join me in thanks to the most divine gift we now share
  as crimson rose I so sweetly place in your beautiful hair
  dream that embraced us into it's heavenly fold

Angel Clouds II

Angels sweeping across the heavens
Using their magical brooms to gather crystals of ice
Building the most magnificent sculptures from clouds
Entertaining themselves as they stand their posts for the greatest battle of all time
Using their gifts of creativity from their Heavenly Father
Sweeping, sweeping, and using their wings as little dust pans
Collecting every last fragment of ice crystals
It’s amazing what you can find up there if you really concentrate
One day I saw an entire fleet of ships
I’ve seen rabbits, dinosaurs, four leaf clovers, and angel clouds too
When you see angel clouds above your home you know you are a special servant
Angels make clouds of themselves to prove their existence
They want you to know that they are watching over you
You must have a very special assignment if you spot angel clouds above your home
When I was a child I would lie on the green grass for hours trying to find my own magical clouds
I would lay there and talk to God forever
An entire afternoon sometimes
Thank you God for your mysterious clouds
Thank you for your angels
Thank you for your gift of creativity
Every time I look UP I am reminded

Soul of mine

In a cemetery,
at midnight,
under the shimmering moon light.
Dug a grave,
buried soul of mine.
picked in hands,
through my fingers,
slipped like wine.
Shed tears of mine.
Oh! may be!
Let me sing a lullaby,
as one last goodbye.
As I buried soul of mine,
angels began to cry.

Angels looking for light?

My angel came to see me last night; he entered my bedroom with an empty look upon his 
face. He sat on the corner of my bed and tried to smooth out the wrinkles of my blanket, 
then turned to me with a glistening look upon his eyes and an unsaid question playing on his 
lips. Then out of nowhere he said "Do you know were the light is?” I silently laughed within 
the private chambers in my head. I cleared my throat while trying to decide what words to 
use, I thought in silence now looking at a different expression on that flawless face an 
expression of hurt feelings, as if heard me laugh inside my own thoughts. Then I whispered 
in a quivering voice "If you don’t know how do you expect me too." He then vanished leaving 
a confused look upon a Childs face, all I can say now is that I haven’t seen my angel 
lately....maybe he finally found what he was looking for.

She sells Suicide

She sells suicide in the mirror i see
by the seashore dark lady
how i adore her
arch angel say it if you want
that whore its allright
she sells herself black magic

and i know i got a knew flame

dark angel if you will
because she sells suicide from new orleans
suicide from down below something i been missing

all the things she said
something special

perfume i wont take to kindly to

she sells sundials and daisie
bad scratches in seriuous ways
I'll run
and her thoughts make me crazy
she sells jokes and smiles
make it all worth the while
and the gun was in my hand
lend me my light liar liar liar
and ask the page through the tinted glass
has love brought me to a higher place
does she realy truly 
surely she does
she sells suicide in a darkened room
even to the saddest of us clowns
the ones that get down and pray

the ones that care to no longer to save the day
wont turna card up anymore

when all the merry men clapped 
have company they shouldnt have
gypsie music
begging us once to marry them
im a mistake in the past
the brew was gone
Liar liar
string our dreams along
and im coming clean to gypsie music

Im thinking ill be alright and wheres my reason
till we have heaven in sight
say it if you choose
she sells suicide everyday
this im sure
she sells suicide
i want some more
to know more of myself
suicide for the rich
the down beat the trodden
the happy and the poor
very close to you 
I'll find it in you 
and secretly true
the queen and the three
i wish you could have seen my face
lend thee thy light
she sells it by the truck full
she sells it to bangkok
while you pray
and yore wont take to kindly to it

she sells suicide
to forgotten faces
laughing and dancing
like the sound of my voice
i heard it was true
liar liar liar
the black two eyed jack
I'll fight
but never thought id see it like this before

But when i awoke
 The angel who left me 
Came calling,

I saw heaven
I saw heaven
Yes i saw heaven

Past Lives

Flight into the clouds overlooks and
decides upon new life for you. Never 
pregnant but always re-producing 
mysterious pathways for students of
fire and song, the ominous are easily 
forgotten. My skin is pure white with a
transparency that cannot be seen. At my
breast are many mountains that soar
through the clouds and my hair is yellow 
like the sun light. I live among stars and 
lilies and travel easily between two 
different worlds. A human's life will decide
whether he or she can continue to live as 
an angel where there is no death.

You

Feel nothing, 
See Nothing, 
Hear nothing, 
Sense nothing, 

That’s you, 

Feel everything,
See a lot, 
Hear majority, 
Sense more than you can imagine, 

That’s me, 

What I see, 
You don’t. 
What I feel, 
You mustn’t 
What I hear, 
Your deaf to, 
What I sense,
You haven’t the faintest clue. . . 

I am wasting my time, 
Or am I?
I’d like to know, 
Rather sooner, 
Than later. 
I could give up, 
But I won’t. 

Why?
Because I’m not
Like you, 
Fight ‘til the end. 

Never stop, 
Never mend, 
Always pretend, 
‘Tis my reality, 
Although it often seems that;
Like a nightmare, 
Of which I can run as fast and as long as I want, 
but not escape.

I could escape if I wanted to, 
But the pain is more than, 
More than that of a million blades, 
Blades that leave a labyrinth of red streaks,  
Sadistic it may seem, but the pain is the only way, 
To get sense of what is reality,
And not a dream,

I have a soft side, 
Buried somewhere inside, 
Open your eyes, 
See where I bleed, 
It’s there, 
Always, 

Never waning, 
Always growing, 
Growing wider, 
Growing stronger, 
Growing longer, 
Growing tougher to control, 

I ask not much, 
Your love, 
Your affection, 
Your desire, 

In the end, 
It is I, 
It is I that is selling you short, 

All I have to say is, 
I’m sorry, 
But why bother, 
You don’t care, 
You don’t;
Never care, 
Never Feel, 
Never See, 
Never Hear, 
Never Sense, 

And for that, 
I am truly sorry, 
Though it be not my fault, 
Only the fault of your past.

The Seat of Heart

My heart torn to shreds by you,
my hero in my mind,
the one who saved me,
you mean beast in reality,
here to torment my very exsistance,
still reaching out and crying,
feeling this beast soul, or troll?
Does God know his children would suffer so,
curse him and everything here,
emotions boiling over, can't stop.

Where is this angel I feel in my heart? 
Is this abstract art,
only in the eye of the beholder,
illusion only to the artist,
Or is there a universal truth to the artist strokes?
Strokes of paint that turn to tears with one thought of not so innocent fears.
Where is my angel I pray,
This masked feeling of my soul?

Abstract is only for the artist to see,
everyone else does not see. Love is an abstract
emotion not meant to see,
its an illusion of the heart deep within so torn apart.

Far apart is where the wounded must stay,
not fit for society.
Bleeding hearts cannot show their ugly face,
for no one will believe the torment when we sleep,
if we must shed our skin do it quietly,
for no one will hear. For as we see,
that is the way it should be. 
To Thee

Touched by an Angel

Trouble with the motion
is the fact that your devotion is pointless
it is void and so joint less
I am seeing nothing but pain
I am seeing nothing but pain
I am seeing your face in vain
I am thinking
where do your desires lie
Where do you speak your misery cries
How could you become something of a natural
how ever so factual
you moan and you're rendered speechless
You moan and you are spread eagle fleeting
heart is beseeching
speak to me ever
I am always your after
I speak and you listen
carefully you glisten
I am sunshine
you are tremendous
Force begone
I am so long done unjustly found
and so sling with the words you are bound
I am soon quenched
thirst 
drenched
In such pain
I am sorry for everything I've done
I am sorry for everything I have become
I am nothing without you
I am ok
I am nothing without you
I am now going to fray

Remembrance of My Death

Around, all around,
the mourners gather.
My dread grows as
the angry hand of
heaven,
Falls against my
naked soul. It
smites me,
And darkly my
essence drips to the
wicked earth that is
my prison.
In a strange and
terrible glee, 
I beg forgiveness
while the reaper
takes my unwilling
hand,
Now alone, my
cascade of tears
falls upon uncaring
eyes.
This is my hell,

Him, Me, I

When he sits, he gets lost in his mind. 
His mind wonders in an instant. 
Wonders to that place of hurt and void,
That place of nothingness. 
He feels complete happiness slips slowly away from him.
Slowly from his clutches never to be held again?
Never to be caressed in the palm of his hands 
Never to be enjoyed again? 
His thoughts are shared but with no satisfaction
No satisfaction, for there is no response.
No response to his words.
No response to his cry.
No response to fill the void,
No response to mend the shattered pieces.

No response to mend the broken.
Mother.

A person that literally shoves the light down your throat and all you can do is breathe life, 
A person with a heart so pure that her heart beats heal all of yours, 
A person when you imagine her but all you see is an Angel.

I was told to take the blind folds off to see the real truth about her, 
As a fool I listened like a hostage would listen when a fully loaded gun was pointed at my head.

Off it went and I saw the truth about her.
She didn't shove light down my throat, 
She shoved more, 
She isn't an angel, she is more, 
Her heart isn't just pure, 
It’s every kind of purity and much more.

That's what I saw after I took off the blindfolds.

Internal Flora

Gabriel, 
blow your trumpet in my ear
so I may hear
the rise of lilies
Marching down my throat 

Naked ladies and daffodils
King proteas and petunias
Spinach, celery and rocket

For the venus fly-trap has lost her teeth
in semi-nation feasting --

My gut is a gaza-strip:
holier than seven maries
times eleven matzot, squared

Who would raise the dandelion and the khaki-bos, 
Who would shield the cornflower and the joseph's coat 
in semi-nation trepidation

My gut is a gaza-strip
My nerves: a dead sea . . .

But Gabriel,
blow your trumpet in my ear again
so I can see
the significance of shattering

Michael the Archangel

~~Michael the Archangel~~

One of the mightiest of Seraphim—It’s him!

Michael the Archangel	

His eyes of flaming fire and words like rockets being shot from a launching pad

If you’ve ever met my brother Michael you would learn one thing about angels

They don’t play games and they do everything according to the word of God

When they love they love with ALL their heart

When they war in the heavenlies they hold NOTHING back

Six mighty powerful wings with tips as sharp as razors

Six shiny heavenly wings that lift him like an eagle

He is my brother and he is a mighty warrior

If you are in the Army of the Lord you will get to stand with him in battle

That’s Michael! In a nutshell he is one extraordinary archangel

Just don’t tell Gabriel this because they have a little sibling rivalry going on

(in a good way)!

angel stalker

a watcher from a distance at the words spoken from a man of true color a man 
with a flow of speech in written terminology like no other. Lost in thought at the 
power of words. Some say actions speak louder than words do,but to counteract 
this the pen is mighty than the sword. The walls that surround me daily so much 
written some of great wisdom some of comedy some words written by the 
forgotten the lost the wondering still searching to practice that that they preach. 
So hmm i speak pass a message along no matter the message u never know 
what some positive insight can mean to the eyes that stare past u into the 
deeper workings of ur innerself

Angels

We can not all be devils. There must be angels and even if angels are robed in rags and their robes soiled by the earth, it is alright as long as their robes are not soiled by bad deeds.

Gentle Jailer

Gentle Jailer

Lord to you i send my cry
In such times like these
Who else can we turn to?
We put all our trust in you
Cuz your hand can do all things.

In times of trouble, you save us
In repentance its you who forgives
You are the gentle jailer who sets us free
Everytime we repent truly from our hearts

Bind us tight with your love
Bring us down with meekness
Send us away with your boldness
Bind us with your grace and mercy
And may we never stumble in this world
For your light is the light unto our dark paths

her singsong voice

tight the eager eye
on the promise of what could be
bright with summer day
faded now with autumn's touch
the quick natural boys run fast in the the shadows
powerful to the truths of their age
young with wet cowlick face i ran too
holding a dogeared book
of her gentle phrase
felt like the world could have been mine
gentle breeze stirring the faded leaves
and all thouse bright summer faces
who's names have now gone

so strong she took to wing
flew so high saw the sun unadorned
so beautiful this elegant one
her quick smile had no cracks
her clean eyes were full of loving joys
so like the majesty of night
softly entrance
with such gentle caress
so strong took to wing
soared above the green world
swimming in the summer skies and clouds
bathing sweetly in the heavens
with stars for jewels
with moons for toys
so beautiful elegant one

tight the young hand
on the broken book
where her singsong voice was captured so beautifully
could see the worlds mystery's
with such young clarity
she had a way about her
that explained to my young head
all the fresh young boy things i would need
to be with such a strong beauty
with such an elegant promise fulfilled
so i ran like wind
ran like compassion and lightening
fast as the summer sun
strong as winter whispers
for her
my sweet her
in my heart
while her singsong voice captured me in every way
(tribute to sylvia plath..my sweet her)

Silent Wars - Repair My Broken Dreams

We all need some sort of loving…
Give me all you got
Give me your best shot
Dance to the rhythm of my heart
I can’t pretend this loneliness doesn’t exist
It don’t matter anymore
Weep no more, beloved…I loved you from the beginning of time
Weep no more, sad fountains…I adore you more than life itself
Weep no more and instead, repair my broken dreams and let’s spend time with 
each other – that, to me, is sublime
Weep no more, peace-abiding angel! You’re beautiful from every angle – don’t hurt 
yourself…

*chorus* 
Don’t start another World War with your silent wars…
Our friendship bond is getting weaker…I must find a cure
To this heartache and help me, for heaven’s sake!
I’m breaking by the seams
Repair my broken dreams
Repair my broken dreams
Repair my shattered dreams
Repair my shattered dreams
We’re on each other’s team
Do you still have low self-esteem?
Don’t you feel like giving up sometimes?

Love is pure beauty
You have a hard heart…a cold, cold heart
What are you living for?
What are you fighting for?
Some say I’ll never meet my lover at first sight
I’ve been dreaming of you forever…
You were my endeavor…
I dreamt of you every night I fell asleep
My dream of reality is the golden wheat I gaily reap 
I’m not walking through the Weeping Meadows – I run away from the tragedies in 
life…I keep running oh so fast
Nor am I looking back my reflections…my shadows of the past – I cast away the 
ghosts of my wicked past and pray my happiness will never last

Angels on Halloween

We didn’t dress up like this!
We look like this every day!
We are the host of angelic beings 
And we have come to make our presence known
We are the Armies of the Lord on High
We are the cherubim and seraphim
We behold the Creator’s glory!
We make our presence known on this day
This dreadful day of evil
We circulate the streets as the children of God are out in numbers
Walking the streets
Picking up sweet treats
All in the name of having some fun
They come dressed as miniature Dracula’s, witches, and pop stars
Walking proudly as they show off their childlike imaginations
If they only knew this was the day of the Dragon
Their parents would keep them at home and worship Jesus
We are the angelic hosts and we have come to make our presence known
Watching out for the children of the Lord
Surely they are not aware of the danger that lurks around cars and sidewalks 
Do they realize what really occurs on the Day of the Dragon? 
The Satanic worships!
Sacrificing lambs, goats, small children, and even virgins
They have their own high mass and drink blood and mock the Creator
For surely if they knew this they would not want to be outside
If the parents of the children of God only knew the danger that lurks on this day
They would keep all that is innocent beneath the roofs of their homes
They would take the time to sing a song to the Lord who loves them the most
Jehovah and His Son understand the lateness of the hour
They have sent the angelic armies to watch over their precious children
When you get to heaven one day you can thank Them for this knowledge
He is the Almighty God and He surely loves all his kids!

not so crippled

Cripples make music with old, worn out digits and voices tarnished with age.
only slightly crippled, generally slight due to gravity
Play guitars and mandolins in a barn turned church,
Not banging on wheelchairs or walkers.
Praise the lord in song, glossy eyes mysterious
Perhaps a deep state of meditation has washed over, by and by aware of themselves
Music heard has not come from instruments, it has come from hearts
suddenly decrepit figures blossomed with wings
Revealed from their vessels angels appeared.
Astonished I thought why does peace look so sad?

meeting an angel

the first time we met,it was awkward because we didn't
know what to say.
speechless as can be,we look at each other and smile 
and say sorry.
I walk away without looking,she looks back and smile.
but as I walk away she made me smile.
but I wonder about her if I will ever see her again.
I wonder who was that girl I bumped into.

I wonder if she was just a angel that just appeared above
looking for her way back.
so I walk and walk,I see the angel I was thinking about
It was the girl I bumped into,she was playing her guitar.
I walk up to her and ask her,
your the girl I bumped into.I wonder what is your name.
she smiled and said angel.
huh really,yup she said.
she played beautifully,wow I smiled and said I have to get 
going.
how about tomorrow.

she said ok,
I said ok,I will come to see you..
I smiled away..and she smiled back
and thats how I met angel

Three more days

Three more days till your day is here again
The day I lost my best friend
The day my world stopped spinning
And the day the angel were singing

I will remember you always and forever
All the times we spent together
The love you gave without any strings
And the day you got your wings

So my sweet angel who watches me grow
Please know your love still shows
With every sun raise I feel your touch
And every sun set your missed so much

My dearest friend my grandmother
For you there is a place that can be filled by no other
I will forever cherish the time we had
And forever will July 12 make me sad

I See Angels

I See Angels
 
I see angels, not only, when I sleep, 
more often, when awake, 
some petite, in gowns, flowing long, 
or putting final touches, 
to beauty, that needs none, 
from little angels, to full grown ones 

They talk in tones, often, 
disguised, not understood, 
a cryptological language, 
interpreted only by angels, 
in their own angel group, 
occasionally break tradition, 
speak certain phrases, 
recognizable to all, 
always welcome, always good, 
increasing my love, for my angel brood 

Memories of angels, pleasurable thoughts, 
lead to today, when I thought naught, 
an angel does leave me, 
for another, she will care, 
increasing the love we all share 

All of my angels, share the same fate, 
leaving their father, once their first date, 
soon will return, with their own special angels, 
for me to love and to care 

A contented father, rejoices and waits, 
for I see angels

reflected guidence

somewhere between the sephira i beg of thee
bleed my soul and take my spirit eternally 
i question no motive 
of mans hatred nature
and place no blame of that which is smoke and mirrors
oh how i wish i could bring you the horizon
read these words and feel the pain
yet think of comfort 
and its bittersweet rain
forever am i the broken wings 
guidance i offer
an outstretched hand
but i lay in the shadows 
so find my fingertips 
and embrace that which i have reflected upon you

Songbird

Songbird
(Paganism)

Sunshine and smiles
the fire dances with life
the air smells sweet
and the Songbird sings of love.

The Great Mother is content
the river flows freely
whilst her daughter chooses flowers for her hair
and the Songbird sings of life.

The redwoods stretch their branches to the heavens
The mountains silently offer their prayers
and the sweetness of life penetrates all
and the Songbird sings of God.

For we all dwell in the heart of God
we can all learn the songs of the Songbird
but we cannot keep her for ourselves
for she sings of the life and love of God,
for all living things, and all this is God.

Sing me a song of life and love
and I will listen with delight
How sweet your song, how tender and soft
Had I not tried to hold you,
I might still be able to hear your song.

Let me sing to you of the God that I know
and see that it is the same.
Would that you again rested on my shoulder
i would not restrain your flight
sing to me sweet sister of life, love, and God.

Let me once more walk within the woods
and laugh and sing of God's perfection.
Let me dwell in the canyons 
Let me sit on the mountain peaks
and bathe in the splendor of all that is God.

Your here and gone in the blink of an eye
So precious, so loving and so aloof.
Let me but taste the nectar of your sweet song
and I will not hunger or want, 
for I will have fed on the love of God

My angel

Angels are real although most are 
not seen, my angel's real, but she 
doesn't have wings. My angel is the 
one I love, my angel was sent from 
above. My angel's the one in my 
dreams, my angel's the one that's 
never unseen. 

My angel is my love, my life, my 
angels always in my sight. My angel's 
the only one I see at night, the one 
I wanna hold so tight, my angel's the 
one who makes everything right. 

My angel brings me clarity and conclusions, 
my angel always relieves my confusion. My 
angel's always by my side, my angel's always 
along for the ride. My angel relieves the 
pain inside, my angel helps me overcome 
everything I've tried to hide. Now I'm 
gonna help my angel put her pain aside, 
and show her that she should really shine.

Yet Another Reason Why I'm The Grand Guardian...

I am the pillar of hope, 
I give them strength, 
that’s been my life, 
and I am now made of rock. 
I have and always will be, 
here to help humanity.
My friends don’t fret, 
it is for the best, 
and I care for all of you, 
just, the same.
So your pain is mine, too, 
now smile and remember, 
I care for you none go, 
without my love. 
I am an angel from above, 
I care for all who seek me out, 
and I am here without a doubt.
All are worthy of my care, 
your emotions of pain
and sorrow along with them all.
Everything you feel is with me, 
all of my days I cared so much, 
and so deep for all I can feel everything.
When you see me cry,
remember your hope keeps me alive,
your pain hurts me too.
All of your strength gives me courage, 
to do what’s right even when we mess up.
Do you get the gist of my connection, 
to you I will forgive all, it is not my place, 
to judge I just am here to love and comfort, 
all who need my kindness. But even
an angel needs an angel every now and, 
then, but none under my care can be there.
My entire existence is for you all, 
I would not feel right forcing those who, 
I help all those in need but I don't worry about me, 
Eventually one will come to help me so, 
that I can help you all more with my heart of
gold that you all know I may whine and cry, 
but my problems are always set aside for you.
None need to worry about me I will be fine, 
as long as I can help you all I will be here.
Now rest in the hope that I can help,
need not weep for my pain for I care for all,
none shall cause me to come close to falling,
I will be fine to help you all but I hope for the,
one to come and help me. Hush my friends; 
I am always here for one and all.
Now be glad I live I am strong I have handled my burden's and yours as well I will 
be fine. I will always be here to help none need to worry about me only he who is 
to be with me to help all of you, I am fine and safe so smile I thrive off your 
strength and feel your pain but I am here for all I care without a doubt.

Sacre Coeur

SACRE COEUR

Setting alone atop the butte Montmarte
Surveying all the city of lights below
Your alabaster dome rising high
As a gleaming beacon in the night

Christ's arms extended inside your dome
Sheltering the altar below
And beckoning all that enter in
to come and worship so

A choir in the background sings
Voices rise as one to heavens ear
A better sound was never heard
An angelic praise ascending to God

The voices filled the room with grace
I trembled at the sound
And felt the wonderful love of God
To me and all who are around

I hope to go again sometime
To this very special  place 
And listen for the voice of God
and marvel at his presence

Salvation

The two stood apart from each other. The warrior was covered in blood 
that was almost all his own. His body was beaten and his breath came 
in ragged gulps. He readied his blade and attempted a final strike at his 
foe. A cloak caught the attack and only a mask could be seen. He fell, 
his spirit broken and his resolve gone. His body no longer able to fight, 
his eyes began to see nothing but shadows. As he began to fade a 
voice spoke, "Rise." He lifted his head to see a light flooding the sky. It 
wrapped around him and he stood. An angel came down to him and 
placed her hand on his, "Heal." His wounds closed and he felt strength 
return to him. His resolve came back as the light was finally freed. The 
warrior stood anew and he lifted his sword once again. The angel 
gripped the sword with him and added her strength to his, "Fight." The 
warrior charged and the fight resumed. With the light free and the 
angel giving him purpose, the warrior fought. The battle raged and the 
shade was beaten back. Life flourished around him as the shade was 
locked away. It would break free and attack several times. Each time it 
would be further broken as the two stood firm against the darkness. 
Others came and bonds strengthened. The light could no longer be 
sealed, and the darkness was bound forever more.

The Angel and Fallen Star

       Fallen Star searches the constellations./ So many destinations./ Rolling through time, 
passing generations./ After so long something catches his fascination./ A luminous light / so 
bright/ roaming a planet in the distance./ Without a second thought he ends his existence!

       A Fallen Star blazes across the midnight sky./ A woman walks by./ In disguise/ as an 
Angel from above./ The Fallen Star has literally found love./ He does cartwheels to impress/ 
this gorgeous princess./ What must he do to win the heart of this chic?  The Fallen Star is 
love 
sick?/

       He asks, "Come fly with me/ spread those wings and be spiritually free."/ She's unsure,/ 
and insecure/ of love that is melting into obsurity;/ ignoring it's purity,/ refusing to explore/ 
his hearts door,/ and it's ability/ to heal her pain,/ and give her security./ She has nothing to 
lose, but the world to gain;/ He means each word sincerely!/

       Time has no significance with them./ A raging passion begins between her and him./ A 
desire/ so intense;/ The flames of this fire/ is evident!/ The Fallen Star is hell-bent/ to 
worship this creature that is heaven-sent./ This bond is no coincident./ This angel is oh so 
confident!/ Seeing is believing,/ and these two beings/ can be seen on any radar./ A radiant 
light/ in the night;/ is the Angel and Fallen Star!!!

Enchantment

How white and blue together recollect us
to the summer sky and the imagined swallows
darting in exquisite geometry
under the great domed space of the heavens,
like the Basilica in Constantinople
containing and giving space.
And how I held you for a moment that was infinite
and then you were gone like an angel fearing enchantment
into some finite boundaried world

My LIFE Has Often Been Solace

My LIFE Has Often Been Solace

With the clouds as pillows moving silently

Towards Heavens velveteen sky 

With angels bright white gowns

As I can see to the heavens

Where old country church bells ring

As the angels sing in harmoniously

My LIFE has often been solace

With honey colored shadows

With a poring sunlight of zest
 
Across the the heavens to my heart

I see your face looking at me 

Which inspires my soul write your words

Your voice is like a soft wind carrying it to me

Your words I write reach to all distant lands

These eyes have often been solaced by your return

As You fill this vacant spot in my heart with Love

With the most wonderful whisper of Your voice

As You embrace my heart with Your Love

As You show me the way You love me

As you show me the way I need You

As You guide the way I live my LIFE

Like the most wonderful fire in LIFE

As You teach me I learn and pass it on the them all

Two Angels

Peaceful as a fawn
Gone before dawn
The angel now closes her eyes

Crying in pain
Tears fall as rain
The angel’s in pain as she cries

Chaos sets in
Reality within
Another angel screams at the skies

Angel whisked away
Stolen from the fray
Angels hoping their eyes show them lies

Future unknown
Frightened alone
Two angels left to find their own way

Brave little girls
Heads all awhirl
Two angel’s lives where changed this day

december's desert

stop by the side of the road
and sitting scarecrow's style cross-legged
waiting for the sunrise
waiting for the swift silent desert world to unfold
come sit here a silent sentinel with me
wait for the swift sun to beat its hard feet upon the ground
wait for harsh winter's hand to be rescinded
for the cold night to recede
here in the desert stillness
come sit here cross legged in the dry sand
feel
the air itself holds its breath in anticipation
you can feel the heavy hard excitement moving
in the clouds overhead
burnt dry by the anvil of the sun
love the sand on your tongue
wait here with me  
scarecrow's cross-legged style
on the sands without a sea

Sweet Onions

As I cut the sweet onions
the Angel whisper's in my ear,
giving me visions
of the one I love.
I know not what it means,
only that it is upon me.

My knife is working on it's own,
I only hold the handle,
slicing and dicing 
to the beating of my heart.
My thoughts go beyond today,
to days and mistakes
that I can not fix ever.

Am I a martyr to Romance and Passion,
did I not embrace Love enough ?

I'm sure the Devil whispered in my ear then,
taking me to deserted streets 
and cheap motel rooms,
where names matter little at all,
only the money in your pocket.

She was with me,
with the Devil whispering to her,
maybe she the one I Love
showed me how to forget the day
and live just a few minutes at a time.

The smell of the sweet onions
seems to pour into me
bringing a touch of reality back.
The tears they bring
is covering up the real ones.

The Angel grants me 
one last look of her face
as I tell the Devil to whisper 
to someone else.

In darkness

I found you sitting in the darkness.
With the shades drawn you find comfort in the pain.
Sometimes you wish you were so far away,
to the place where your guardian angel waits.
You light your candles to surrender,
let the pain come and run its angry course.
Induce a smile while you're pretending
that this picture paints a thousand pleasant words.
You watch the world through vacant eyes.
The silent girl who's screaming inside.
An angel born with wingless shoulders.
You're all alone, but you're reaching out,
and you don't know it.

I found you sitting in the darkness
where your hate's expressed through your creativity.
You paint the picture with subconscious fingers
until the light comes on and you've lost lucidity.
You write a poem in your own language of fear
because the words reveal your own masked reality.
When your reflection's standing in the mirror
do you know the you that your eyes wont let you see?
You numb the pain with needles and pills
nothing to gain and nothing to fill
the hole inside, it grows deeper each day.
No place to hide when its written all over your face.

How does it feel to be not who you want to be,
wanting so much to be somebody else.
Closing your eyes to see only what you want to see,
you find all the reasons to keep on hating yourself.

I wont take you for granted, I'll reach for your hand
if you wont let go.
I'll hold you closest to my own soul if you'll hold on
I wont let go.

Politically Incorrect

Once transformed into an angel of light

Bite into,
Having long viscous fangs that bite
Gone our the lost days of getting respect now in a daze
Perhaps this is the politically incorrect faze?

Politically Incorrect,
Zero tollerance for misinterpretation of the text,
Others create a barrage of jokes & get respect
Having abortion on demand means nothing to these big City Thugs!

Or is it just best as I plainly reflect & sweep that notion in thought under the rug?

It used to mean something to have integrity, respect & authenticity?
Still clearer heads have prevailed while some have found there's lying in a sewer...
A transformed angel that appears light yet is the one of death
I must strictly confess,

A tulip dies beneath the sod in time

Do you all remember when you were broke down to your last thin dime?
We plant seeds of regret & then call this charm!
Sound the alarm!
Gone our the days since 1988,

A cheap date a long from that of Watergate.
What a flake I mean Nixon & his lies!
Does this notion in thought come at any big enough surprise?
We have adopted the fake mentality

A notion of disrespect in brutal reality
The onslaught of death & shut gun blasts in the streets!
You want to say something yet you can't
We have cowards for politicians & innocent regret

We erect billboards with false hidden ads
We attend war zones the most children call schools,
Still this is your society & you get to do what you want
A fight to even cope

When you have that fight with the battled old spiced soap on the rope!

Gone our the days today we just froloc in a haze
Our celebrities our fake & so is our dates
Date?
Amazonian, fake women that look like men

It's best to go down to Florida & their work on your tans!
Yet we all planted our seeds in this sod of death
A hero's text reads sorry that we met
Gone our the idols we used to hold dear

Today I sheltered a tear like the indian crying in the rain
In deep pain not shelter lies dormant in anguish against
It's deepest hardened sinners quest
Perhaps were just in some violation being put through an ultimate test?

Now I'm better your so very sorry that we ever met ?
Politically Incorrect
Where as others can say whatever they feel
Perhaps I'll just have to play my one last game of Let's Make A Deal ?

Angel Judas

There is a presence behind my shoulder
A shadow, moulded of heart-sighs & burnt sugar
Just a phantom perhaps
But the perfume of charnel houses rests heavy on 
My wheezing chest
And the impression of holy hollowed-out eyes
Haunts my every waking dream
A shy voice murmurs,
Seductively 
In my ear
Luring me down twisted paths towards the
Shores of purgatory,
Eroding under a pallid sky
And in my sleep a dark angel takes me in his arms
& kisses me with poison-cracked lips
Pouring venom into my lethargic soul
I call him my Angel Judas
That shadow at my side that no sunlight can 
Chase away
That no one else but I can see
He guides me through life with cobwebbed hands
And spits in the face of my shattered dreams

May Girl

May Girl
I went into the jewellry shop to sell my dead mum's jewels. I saw you there, looking like the Goddess of Spring or like you'd been to a wedding. Your hair tied up and flowers in it. Wearing a white top, so Art Noveau.                                                                                    
Faint hint of make up, torquoise eye liner, red lipstick. Stylish black mini skirt, the right length. And your legs... legs of a Goddess. You remind me of my mum, when she was young and pretty. Her image caught in old photos.                                                                                              
You confirmed that not all local girls are nasty.

sliders of candahar

the 400 undercover cops
that have been trained to solve your drug problem
that you don't recognise creeping across your land
gaining information and proof
the cult of cartoons to mark you for what you are

1st things first
your precinct will be informed they are under citizens arrest
quite frankly the cops being terrorised by society need a hand
with the sorry state of their internal affairs

has your house been broken into?
did you report a hostage situation
got beat up by the cops
and the drug dealer behind it all was freed the next day?
i surely couldn't relate

Have you been recognising how often people have been reporting suspicious 
behaviour
like a suspect bank robber not even being interrogated
while you get sent to a mental institute for being concerned about
the environmental health of three towns
shouldn't maybe somebody get fired
or heck even go to jail

forget i told you this
ignorance is bliss
a tag team
when the time comes
and there are 1000's of people chewing gum
buying pretty pictures for bumper stickers
i wonder if i could get a job as a painter

when the time comes
we have ways of making your life more fair
reporting drunk drivers on the internet
like a green jeep cheroke


Is there good cops out there
spreading themselves thin with the media
reporting suspicious behaviour in their precinct
waiting for the time to start doing things the easy way

I'm just an idea man
i couldnt have been in all of those places at once
are you about to blacklist the wrong person
because they are going to inform the public
what america did to canada
and that supposed terrorist was only concerned
about someone who should be a billionaire
and then used his own ideas and money to try to kill him
just for being nice

why am i surrounded by soo many interesting people
i wonder if bill gates could relate
to this awful nightmare
considering you practically have your own time machine of lies
leaving me unable to know how old i truly am

are you about to witness someone willing to sell their soul to the devil for love

I Troy Jeremy Nelson
Hereby sell my soul, the weapon of mass destruction that it is
to the fallen angel devil known as satan
for him to become one of god's 3 perfect lives,
only if the antichrist becomes the second of god's 3 perfect lives
and myself the third of god's 3 perfect lives
dated 06/19/2010

since i currently have no soul
me and the angel of death are incredibly close
what else is church for?

Intro

Champion of The Night, Draw your Sword then take flight. The agony of your darkness is such a chilling sight. Your icy disposition is giving me a fright, please dear fellow leave me now before the morrow’s plight. Warrior and Savant turn your dagger into me. I wish to save the children from the dusk that’s lacking glee. Humble solider put your rifle down, I don’t intend to kill you but you’re giving me a frown. Clowns and Jester’s you must gather all around, the feeble minded sovereign is just now come to town. Round up all the people the young and the old, For you know how he hates to see his people in the cold. The Time is right do not start a fight for he's quick to anger and merciless in his strikes.  We must be humble and gracious when our king comes to town for you know how fast he is to blast a ##### down. Quit playing around he is now walking in town and don't make a sound till he enters the grounds......

tTthe Sacrificial Lamb

tTthe Sacrificial Lamb 

The Father Abraham was in the desert near the place where GOD was at 
when there came a sound like thunder from the infinite place where GOD is at. 
“Take the boy and bind him up and tie him to MY altar and take thy sword in thy 
right hand and offer him a living sacrifice to me for eye am GOD.” 
This was the boy named Isacc in the wood of all the desert places where the 
voices of the 
GOD was heard from up above. 
And Abraham was never certain but he understood that GOD must be obeyed, 
and though it hurt him HE stood there with arm upraised and Brought UP the 
ARM with all his might to strike the child where he was bound where he did lay 
upon the altar of the GOD. But just before the deed was done and just when all 
his hope had gone and just before the SWORD did  plummet into Isacc and the 
deed would be recorded there was an ANGEL in the SUN. 
STOP, look there in the wood in that bush where LAMB is caught. 
There is the sacrifice for you to TAKE  to me Today, 
Let loose the BOY and take the LAMB and SLAY. 
This is the SACRIFICE of GOD. 
Because you ABRAHAM have not withheld thy SON from me, 
The Lambe will come the Virgin Birth and take all the peoples sins away. 
This Poem may startle some of ewe but the sentiment and deeds is true, 
if not the words please just remember that this is not scripture. 
The Christ is Jesus and he BECAME the living Sacrifice, 
And Isacc is my father in my Spirit and the Way for Gentiles to be won. 
And there is still the ANGEL in the SUN to point the way. 
Say Jesus and be done.

Angel Lights

 You brand me Angel lights, 
I dance with your pain
my skin ashy with the dreams;

You gaze upon my weakness
before you turn it to strength,
Each ray burns Into me
A very special flame

You'll leave me Angel lights
I feel it in the flight;
Etched in the soul forever

wanting  something endless
Deadly and dangerous,
Obsessed with your pain

THE ANGEL OF DEATH CALLED MOMMA HOME

As the day faded away and the sun began to set my mother already knew her destiny was upon her the moon gentley rose as she cried silentley alone she looked to the east to the west the south and the north she looked up and down and all around for she knew she'd never see her children again, she planned this night to pass she prayed to our Lord loudly with passion to watch over her children and grandchildren with all the love in her heart, she prayed for forgiveness although she did the best she knew, she walked alone into her room and lay in her bed she put the gun to her temple as she still prayed, she pulled the trigger, all thats left are memories and tears we all cry, but when the sadness starts to fade we'll come to understand she fly's with wings of an angel her soul is set free she watches over us and a tear shall never again fall from her eye's she lay's in a bed of roses and she smiles upon each new day, she is home her mind no longer wonders what her future held, There is a time for every season under heaven and today THE ANGEL OF DEATH CALLED MOMMA HOME.

Beast and Angel in the Flame

Beast and Angel in the Flame
 
It will take more than religion to save you
More than the word of God to ignite you
More than thought to give you direction
More than study to give you conviction
 
And faith in the mountain will not help you
Belief in a path cannot guide you
Your moral decisions will only drown you
Until you wake up
 
When nothing but your own mirror calls you
And nothing but your own heart inflames you
All the passion in the world
Will remain nothing more than a shadow
 
When one day realization beckons you
With its delicate finger of remembrance
Makes you kneel at the foot of acceptance
And kiss the feet of who you are
 
When the doors of your judgment crumble 
before the power of your desire
All the boundaries you have set
Will vanish in the needing want of fire
 
You will stand naked before another person
All your heart, your body, your spirit left; open
When gratitude and release floods every vein
Just to know you are human; again
 
All the same, all the same; we are all the same
In pleasure and in pain
We are all the same
Beast and Angel in the flame
 
And when life washes through you
In pain and pleasure for you
When you stand on this brink and it encompasses you
In a single name
 
Then lift your head in surrender
Raise your eyes in strength
All that you are in one second remember
Without you I am nothing
  
And I stand before you with belief
I hold you bound with a power higher than common love
Naked
Drawn to each other by a force greater than the both of us
 
And the vicious and the crack where the light pours in
And the supplicant and in the wine taste of beyond relief
I am saved
By the you beyond love
 
It will take more than a moral to save you
More than the words of a poet to ignite you
More than institution to give you direction
More than faith to give you religion
 
And trust in the law will not help you
Belief in justice will not lead you
Such moral decisions will only befool you
Until you wake up
 
When nothing but your own mirror calls you
And nothing but your own heart inflames you
All the passion in the world
Will remain nothing more than an unknown shadow
 
All the same, all the same; we are all the same
In pleasure and in pain
We are all the same
Angel and Beast in the flame

God's Sunshine

As John said


"Sunshine on the water
looks so lovely
sunshine almost always
makes me high"

Setting on the river
at Sandy Beach
this sunny

I saw sunshine on
the water for
the 1st time
in a long time

God so Blessed me
today
and Hey:
there is no sunshine

DO YOU KNOW WHAT AMERICANS DO TO COWS

islams a religion of peace and love
that's why it bombed my Pentagon
that's why it blatently cut off the head
of my friend now long dead...
Who by the way never hurt anyone
a prodigal son, in the words of the Stones,
islams a religion of truth and Love
It does not need Christ nor anyone
Kill and you will go to heaven now

An evening with my angel

An evening with my angel
———————————-

It is very beautiful and cool

cause she agreed to come with me

There flowers are spraying their odur

cause to passify her mind

There is a full moon in that sky

to welcome my angel to that place

That evening expands it’s time up to seven

to see her face and her beauty

Larks and birds are singing on trees

to test their voices with my angel

There the sky spreads the stars

to immitate my darling’s smile

My angel came and smiled as …………

every thing  have gone with a shy

THEY

THEY told me to kill her.
To get rid of her.
THEY said that she was evil and mean. 
Deceiving and sinful.
THEY handed me the knife of guilt to do the job.
Stab her in the back THEY all cried in anger.
I held the knife to her throat ready to murder her.
I was ready to take her life and make it mine. 
Letting her be the sacrificial lamb.
I wanted to smother her and never see her again.  
I was not the angel of death but rather the Angel of hope. 
The one who would deliver her into heaven.
For it was I or the mob who would kill her. 
I her friend wanted to be the one to get rid of the pain.
THEY hated her not I.
I loved her; she was a friend a sister.
Her rebellious sprit they condemn and I embraced. 
THEY shoved this jewel to the ground, humiliated her and stole her innocence. 
I was not a friend was I?
I stood in the background and let her feel the pain.
I was Judas, selling her soul for my gain.
Yet in the end it did not matter.
As I held the knife to her throat…she flew away.
Becoming an angel…free and finally happy.
She flew away from the earth who hated her. 
Set her soul free…and I lost my friend.
The girl who ran with such innocence is gone!
And who is to blame? 
Why it is I who is to blame.
For she was I.
A part of my soul. 
Her innocence and charm I lost long…when I wanted to kill that part of me.
So I have survived callused, mean deceitful and angry.
To survive I had to kill her.
World you lost

Garden Angel

A tiny garden angel kneels on a pedestal.
A statue to adorn the garden with her charm.
Her small hands held in prayer.
A circle of flowers around her head.
Her face with a cherubs glow.
Wings outstretched at her sides.
This tiny angel with such life like features.
I sit and watch you pray. 
You are missing some flowers from your headpiece.
It makes me sad each time I look at you.
My tiny garden angel.

An Angel of Truth

An Angel of Truth

If death is where you are
A message has been sent to me
From a single wheeling star
Life goes on eternally

Dead is not who you are
Long time gone now Mother
Afterlife seems too beyond too far
For imaginings of mine to wonder

Bright single life wheeling star
Proved to me with a mystery
For days I was followed through the ether
Came to say “ goodbye ” to me

Mother long time it is to remember
Your gift from the other side of deaths door
With precious knowledge reminding me
Love goes on eternally

Proof there is beyond the hereafter
Her soul/spirit light grew in radiance
Vanished so brightly and did so, so joyfully
But came to say “ goodbye ” to me

A single scintillating living wheeling star
Appearing in the air before me
No; not of my imagination
Denial cannot brook An Angel of Truth

So listen
If you can listen

In light
In love
Life goes on
Eternally
Death does not exists
Is my Mothers message to everyone

So if you have lost someone
They are not gone
Someday in your infinite life
The time will come
When their single wheeling star
Will greet you once again

Poem of Lyrics

Some came to sing; some came to pray
some came to keep the dark away
Reach out in the darkness
and you may find a friend
It's a strange strange world
We live in Master Jack
Who will answer who will answer
who will answer
somewhere over the rainbow
don't sleep in the subway darling
I just dropped in to see what
condition my condition was in
paint it paint it paint it
paint it black
some sweet day we'll be together
time is on my side
yes it is
You can get anything you want
at Alice's restaurant
lost in love and I don't know much
freedom's just another word for
nothing left to lose
you can check out any time you like
but you can never leave
And in the end the love you take
is equal to the love you make
If I were a carpenter and you
were a lady
I use to care but
things have changed

The Angel Parade

The Angel Parade.
They come to heaven all dress in white.
One by one at the gates they come.
No flags they fly. no guns they shoot.
No crowds to watch or hear them shout.
no floats to ride with such pride.
No one rides for free there is always a price to be paid.
As the angels march today.
Two by two they fill they sky. Just as we shout why.
The gates they open as they go behind the gates.
All dressed in white, not red or blue. This is true. 
No shoes on their feet so we can't hear them march.
In the Angel parade.

My Dark Angel

As I look into the eyes of the thing that suppose to be watching over me the angel 
eyes was as blue as the sky but as cold as ice every time I looked into his eyes a 
vibe ran up my spine 

It was like he took the joy from me I knew that his heart was filled full of lonely 
tears, sorrow, and lonely nights I wonder night after night was this thing a part of 
me and indeed it was the other side of me such a side has never been reached 
by me

It even scared me that this was part of me it was a shadow that I couldn't run 
from cause it would always be there I wonder why god couldn't  have sent me a 
happy angel not this angel cause this angel was like something I would never 
want to be or see

I saw him everywhere in my dreams the crossroads of dreams and reality it was 
like he took the life from me, but I didn't know that it was death that I had already 
be dead. That he had met me at the crossroads

The Angel of Hatred and Death

I hated who I was before
And I hated my previous life
I was too weak 
And very passive
I was not fit to be in this world…
So I was thrown into Hell
Swallowed by the Lake of Fire
And the end result
Was my rebirth
And now I’m back to correct my mistake

Hatred and anger fuel my body
I arise from the dead better than I was before
People that took advantage of me
Will now suffer the consequences of their actions!

Ooohhh…Look at what you brought upon yourselves
Ooohhh…The chaos that I cause will be the beginning
Ooohhh…No longer is my name the same, but the Angel of Death!

Now my heart has changed
It is black and hard like a diamond
Never again
Will I open my heart
To anyone for they take advantage…
Pray to God for forgiveness
For I won’t be so forgiving
Because once they’re done
I will silence them
And wipe them off the face of the earth!

With the Sword of Destruction in my right hand
I will slash the earth, purifying it
Chaos, death, and doom will be brought by me
And so the earth shall be reborn, forming a new Genesis!

Ooohhh…There will be fire falling down like the rain
Ooohhh…Not a single soul will be spared by me
Ooohhh…The world will come to know me as the Angel of Hatred!

Fear me and hide for that is they can do
Hate me and mock me for it won’t last too long
Say goodbye to your loved ones, for you won’t see them again
By the time that they are dead, they won’t see Heaven or Hell!

Ooohhh…Look at what you brought upon yourselves
Ooohhh…The chaos that I cause will be the beginning
Ooohhh…No longer is my name the same, but the Angel of Death!
Ooohhh…There will be fire falling down like the rain
Ooohhh…Not a single soul will be spared by me
Ooohhh…The world will come to know me as the Angel of Hatred!
Ooohhh…Now they know the pain that I had to go through
Ooohhh…There will be no mercy given by me
Ooohhh…The Angel of Hatred and Death has spoken!!!

How I Feel About You

     Whenever I think of you I believe an Angel is by my side, and with your love you send
me on a roller coaster ride.
      
     You set me free like an eagle too the air, and you are a Nubian Queen and no woman
shall ever compare.
      
      The thought of looking in your eyes sends me down a river of peace, and feeding off
your love everything will be a wonderful feast.
      
       When I hold you tightly in my arms it feels like I’m floating on air, and because
finding a love like this is truly rare.
      
       The softness of your lips that speaks soft words is like music too my ears, and
when ever I feel afraid I know my angel will be there to help me face all my fears.

      So stand by me like an army to war, and I live for you and you only forever more.

Butterfly Love

She stares at a grave marker
A solid marble angel holds a plaque that reads
"With the wings of an angel I am set free"
With a tear she remembers 
She remembers the night she heard those words
As they spilled from her lover's lips
That was the night her life ended
The night he ended his misery and left this world
That night she decided she would follow him
She whispered in his ear these words that still ring true
"Love is like a butterfly
Hold it too tightly it will be crushed
But hold it too loosely and it will fly away
So before you love first learn to hold a butterfly"
Now tears stream down her cheeks
As she whispers so quietly only her angel can hear
"You will forever hold my butterfly"
With a tear she closes her eyes never to open them again

TRILOGY OF THE HUMMINGBIRD Part One

TRILOGY OF THE HUMMINGBIRD 
Part ONE
Shadow Of The Hummingbird 
The light was off to the right side of me. 
The Angel had my attention first. 
He appeared just to my left. 
Forty feet tall his wings folded around HIM 
like a man wears a cloak. 
A Helmet on HIS head. 
He does not need his SWORD. 
The Sword was hidden under wings so nice. 
The light was not from this world but 
portal in the center of the universe. 
The place eye want to go when leaving mortal coil. 
Other worldly experience was natural unto me. 
This mourning this very day eye did see GOD. 
Inn the shadow of the hummingbird that winked at me 
with wings beating imppossibly quickly so fastly. 
The Spirit of the LORD who lives in every creature. 
And loves us every one of us no matter what we have done. 
He was in the Angel of the SON last nite that visited me. 
And then in the hummingbird that winked at me again HE loved me. 
Inn the shadow of the little thing is where eye saw my GOD. 
We are all just living inn the shadow of GOD's SON.

from thy blessed seed

Bittersweet

They walk into the candy store down the street
Linda and her sitter, both wanting something sweet
To eat

Linda is five and blond and petit
Her sitter, Angel is exactly five feet
Linda thinks Angel is neat

Linda reaches for a Hershey's bar
Angel's eye on her, she doesn't let her get far
Laughing, har de har har

Angel searches for chocolate with a bite
She diligently keeps Linda in sight
Somethings are worth protecting with all your might

Linda is the light
Angel knows right
And teaches Linda to avoid the wrong fight

Angel finds the kind she was looking for
Dark and rich and smooth enough to pour
Linda doesn't like this type, so Angel will have more

Sharing is fine
But sometimes its all mine
Is the best line

Back outside Linda smells the pine
Angel reads the road sign
In a couple of hours it will be time to dine

Stand on the Word.

She stands tall
a pillar of virtue
cloaked in morality.
Looks with disdain upon would be seducers
as she plods through  this
sin ridden earth.

Never does she bend to temptation 
that sucks at her feet
attempting to woo her.

Leers and jeers do not distract her
nor cloying hands attempting to touch her.
To look into her eyes
is to see an angel  sword drawn
ready to defend her.

Weaklings shudder at the sight
leaving dust in the wake of their flight.
Terror awaits those who attempt to seduce her
at the hands of her angel guide.

Over her head God's hand hovers.
Beneath her feet the bible sits.
Standing on the word
she walks the earth
a symbol of faith
a  key to purity
an example to others
till her time here is served.

A memory she'll leave  to us
who are easily distracted 
by the wiles of the world
by  frivolous behaviour and
deeds untold.

Stand tall
Stand firm
Women of the world.
Stand on the bible
Stand on the Word........... the word of God.

HIS Choice

Hovering silently over this earth
He instructs his angel to make notes
A young mother-to-be, He names
“Give her a boy”, says He to his dutiful angel
Then passing on another name, He pronounces
“For this loving family,
Let there be a pretty baby girl”
Finally, He names family and instructs,
“Give them a disabled child”
Stunned, the angel looks up and asks, 
“But why only these humans, Lord?
How happy and blissful they are!”
Calmly, He replies,
“This is the reason why
I give them a special child
I can not be so cruel as to give one
To those whom woe already betides”
Once again, the angel speaks,
“But Lord, are they strong enough?”
And he gets the reply:
“Once the initial shock subsides
They will accept this truth 
They know not yet but
They are to be envied.
Never shall they take 
For granted all the ‘ordinary’ things
When the child speaks the very first word
They shall witness a miracle so wonderful.
I will grant them the strength they need
To face and rise above the ignorance, cruelty and prejudice
I will be at their side
Every moment of their lives 
For they are doing my work
And they are by my side”
The angel nods thoughtfully 
And asks, his pen poised in mid-air,
“Lord, will there be any guardian angel of this child?”
HE smiles and replies, “A mirror will suffice”

Of Sadness (Angel of Sadness)

Today thy angel has come
Home is where thy stranger’s task comes from
Yee may never set gaze among a satisfied sun
 
As for my peers
Nearly every time nears
Goliath of infants
Events of a messiah fading in an instance
Love your angel of sadness
 
Often we dance in hopes that misery happens
Foster homes have caged our madness
 
Son-days exist only as consumed 
Apparently to others I appear doomed 
Damness and hell from every glance looms
Next to new found moments
Every hour now sounds Roman
So we have for every reason to go on men
Sincerely your angel of sadness

Divine Suffering

Break the silence and tell them who you are
light them up, and watch them burn like a star
burning bright like the sun in the sky
loud and terror-striking like a bobcat’s cry
we bleed through the earth like a stab in the heart
let them mock the holy people, their souls will be ripped apart
the angels fell with broken wings
god anointed them, them severed the controlling strings
let the whole world be swallowed up by sin
let the hoards of them explode from within
we all know about god’s powerful wrath
take in divine suffering and let go of the more terrible half

An Angel Came to Roberts Hall

An angel sat at the foot of my bed
And laid his hand upon my leg
After I fell asleep from a night of tears
In a lonely hell and fetal position.
I never saw his face or form,
But I felt God's overwhelming peace
And the place where his hand had lain.
In the morning when I woke afresh,
I saw the place where my angel sat;
Realizing that the next year would hold
The answer to my loud cries and tears,
I made my bed and packed my bags
And unlocked my bare room door.
Going outside, I felt born again again
Thanking God for Roberts Hall's womb.

The veil of the under rug swept prophet part 1

Where to start
Other then in the pieces of the music of a dream crossing over into reality that 
spirals out from me
There is a truth
Not the truth of how my first last and middle names are songs sang by the greats 
of the generations of my life
but in a dream brought about by a truth
A fact of the universe revealed to me
I had conversations
One with a girl whose bedroom was in the sky
And in time she will remind me what these four powerful sentences are
The other, a man and I told him secrets of heavens and hells
And the driving force within him and his purpose of immortality to protect the 
angels from falling to this land we call earth of god's veil of ignorance which is 
really...
How do you explain it other than a deeply routed subconscious godly issue?

A prophet predicted a birth in the family of the greatest gods
and this child needed to be tested to see if he would betray his family and earth 
and heavens
Which was once a garden
and somehow in what is forgotten, mankind knew of this
And realized if they knew what the prophet did of the test and gods favorite angel 
they could become gods as well

Heaven is a land of denial
A place of happily ever after
Hell was a land of the test to face
Where the undercover favorite angel was to trick a child
and now the liars burn and twist in agony 
And earth is a reflection of puzzle pieces of what must not be forgotten for the 
gods to fix
What the prophet predicted of destiny and men having an instant to become 
godlike themselves

Where is my angel

Like in promise I wait
I sit upon my bed
Some say I wait for death
but that is untrue

I want not of death
and it none of me
all I wait for is in faith
You know that moment in your heart

For some the phone will ring
for others it will walk through the door
but when will it happen
No one knows and that is why I wait

And all I know... In my head it rings

This place i found, In lives my soul
the voice of an angel will carry me home
the sun will rise to carry me there
the voice of an angel will carry me home
oh, the voice of an angel will carry me home
Where are you Angel? Please take me home.

Angel with no wings

I'm the angel you see,
I have no wings,
Cause god has not blessed,
Been young is hard,
Everydays a new start,
For me.

I'm the angel you hate,
Cause my heart is made of pure gold,
I'm blessed but not fully,
I'm blessed but not pure,
I'm blue but  you.

My wings are not seen but i fly,
I fly on love,
I fly on grace,
I fly on the need of wings,
I fly on the thought of you,
Tharts why I'm blue.

So may you bless me with your love,
Not for us,
So I can get my wings,
I come first  and then theres you,
But you make me blue.

My wings are growing now,
Because you let me go,
And I found true love,
It wasn't from you,
Now you hate me,
Cause I've got wings.

Wings of gold,
green,
orange,
and blue.

Would love Ever Go Away

Its so simple to say.
Why would love ever go away.
Will it still remain, yes.
Your an angel from the sky.
Your the girl I want too see.
Why oh why can't I see.
Your the guardian angel that watchs
over me.
Your looks,your smile,I look in
the happiness in your eyes.

Or how the stars glimmer at night.
Or how how nights turns into day.
Or when when a rainbow's color
shine.
Or when you hear the wispers of the
ocean blue.
Cause when I look in your eyes.
Your smile.

The warm feeling I get.
So I promise you happiness and love.
But all I need to know,will your love 
ever go away.

Hear The Angel

Can you hear the angel sing

Singing of a glorious day

Can’t you hear the bird’s ah,
Chirping,

In harmony with the bell’s of

The heavenly choir

Can you hear the angel sing

With praises from heaven above

The angel is singing

When my days of toiling is

Done

I want to rest beside my savior

Rest my child rest

Your days of toiling is done

Can you hear the angel sing

Calling you home to rest beside

Jesus side..

Of the Dark Angel

    As we walk 
beneath a bright moon
   Shadows greet 
us
    a dark angel 
    soon appears
  let the clouds 
roll by overhead
   we know our way now
   the dark angel 
leads us to 
our ancestral home
    Midnight
the wings of this angel
     reflect the moonlight
above our heads
stars form constellations
     we walk
beneath the ghosts of the gods
    the dark angel 
sends us his message
and the night is ours 
once more

I prayed for a girl like you.
your my angel from above.

up.
with the colors of the rainbow appears

I never knew that I could find a girl like

Shadow Of The Hummingbird

Shadow Of The Hummingbird 
The light was off to the right side of me. 
The Angel had my attention first. 
He appeared just to my left. 
Forty feet tall his wings folded around HIM 
like a man wears a cloak. 
A Helmet on HIS head. 
He does not need his SWORD. 
The Sword was hidden under wings so nice. 
The light was not from this world but 
portal in the center of the universe. 
The place eye want to go when leaving mortal coil. 
Otherworldly experience was natural unto me. 
This mourning this very day eye did see GOD. 
Inn the shadow of the hummingbird that winked at me 
with wings beating imppossibly quickly so fastly. 
The Spirit of the LORD who lives in every creature. 
And loves us every one of us no matter what we have done. 
He was in the Angel of the SON last nite that visited me. 
And then in the hummingbird that winked at me again HE loved me. 
Inn the shadow of the little thing is where eye saw my GOD. 
We are all just living inn the shadow of GOD's SON.

Many, Many Tears


As I awaken this morning at dawn

And the sun began to rise,

I walked on my porch to look toward
Heaven,

For I knew something was strange
When I awaken,


I thought I seen a beautiful angel
All dressed in white,

She smiled as she spoken to me

Her words were sad and tears filled
My eyes..

She said she came to take my father
Home to heaven

I began to cry,

For I did not want my father to leave
Me,

I walked back inside with tears streaming
Down my face..

My father seen my tears and ask me
Not to cry..

For he knew he was going to a beautiful
Paradise beyond the clouds in the sky

He told me the angel dressed in white
Was my mother..

And he loved her so..

My father said to me

Now I had an extra angel added to help
Watch over me..

His last words to me, was not to worry
And shred tears..

He loved his children

And would always be by our side..

He looked up toward heavens and
Closed his eyes..

And went to his new home in beyond
The sky..

I could not fight the tears, but
I know He’s in a better place..

I miss him something awful and
Tears fill my eyes..

Now my brother join my father and
My mother..

It seems so hard a thing to bear..

I Love you my father..

But ,why did you take my brother
In the days of such dismay,

For I loved him so...

The burden weight down with such
Heavy force..

Much morer burden to bear..

Now they all in heaven’s paradise
With my mother and God..

Tears still fill eyes and my heart
Weights heavy..

They say time will take away all the
Tears,

And fill the empty void in my heart

But right now, I certainly can’t tell..

For days, weeks the months into years
Just keep passing by,

And the tears keep falling

Lord,

Oh’ how I missed them 
So..

Earthbound Angel

On what would seem my darkest hour.
And as I was starring blindly into the void.
A voive of reason and calm fluttered down
from the heavens.
A soldier i am not 
so this was not Elysium.
But yet, I stood before golden threads
frolicking in the in the autumn breeze.
Glistening emeralds and the purest ivory.
It must be heaven or some part of it.
This modern day angel but gave me peace
and calmed my heart.
Bonded in pairs of eternal gold we were wed.
And this angel of mine for me she bled.
Giving me salvation and a child.
This modern day angel is my wife.
My guardian angel for life.

His Paradise

I heard my mother speaking to
Me..

From the sky that heaven hidden

His paradise..

An angel was peeping from under

The cloud..

Holding a candle in her right hand

Singing to this child left in this world

Of so much sin..

Her voice sound much like my mother

Sweet and kind the angel spoken to me

Let these words penetrate your mind

Your heart your soul..

Live your life kind and true

Never stray from the true words

And I know you will be with me

In this paradise where you will

Have eternal life..

In the beautiful mystic paradise

That was made for his

Children..

From Ur Angel (Angel of Sadness)

For my angel I miss you
If I had the heart
I’d close my eyes and kiss you
I can see you’re leaving
If life was a distraction
I’d be forever breathing
Even when my heart seemed repossessed
Still you cherished what ever it was in my chest
For my angel I miss you
If I had the heart 
I close my eyes and kiss you
Outside my window of opportunity
There was something about you
That continuously consumed me
I’ll be there for whom ever you choose to be
After all you watched me travel like a refugee
Through the flesh a pure soul is so hard to see
For my angel I miss you
If I had the heart 
I’d close my eye and kiss you
I speak of a rose petal 
That would only wither away
If I were to touch her
She’d softly say, take your time, no rush
Days would pass and our lips would nearly touch
Yet her eyes would remind me
It was merely a crush

An Angel Prayed For Me



An angel prayed for me today

I know this to be true..

She sent a pray into the wind to

Hasten the destination,

For my heart was burden down

So low,

With many troubles of this world,

None of an earthly gain..

An angel prayed for me today 

This I know to be true,

I felt such serenity as the wind

Softly kiss my cheek..

An angel asked our father today

To lighten such heavy load..

Than, our father smiled at me and

Said,

Your guardian angel prayed with

You to make your days much easier,

An angel prayed for me today

For this I know is true..

Our father sent my guardian angel

And made my troubles descend

From me..

So I know an angel prayed for me

Today,

For our father said this to be true
