LIQUID HEAVEN

Liquid Heaven

A feast for my womanly inner beast!       
I tease, I please, you have me on my knees
I wring my hands, you oint my head
With your fingers locked in my hair of red
You, I call Master! 
You have me in a position, as if I was begging for forgiven
My words are bashing with one stuttering sound
Moaning & Moaning, 
As you make my head swirl like a merry-go-round
Craving for you to unleash your liquid heaven sound

My body speaks and mumbles a language only meant for you
A touch of intimacy, that lathers up like liquid glue
Sticky but, yet so compelling
My tongue slips silent beloved words of joy into the air
You play the master of this dark solid room
This dungeon has lighter, than one can consume
You engage me* to provoke you with everything I got
Yelling, please master don't ever stop!
At this moment I yearn for your excitement that whips out an appeal
To feel the closeness and arousing sensation of your presence
That melts me and chill me with a flow that does not kill
I'm your thinker
Your muse and poet
You are my composer creating liquid tunes
That expresses the hardness of your boldness

I confess to you my love
You are all I'm dreaming of
You drive your hands all over my body
Reaching every angle my steamy body lends
Encourage me to stimulate your mental needs
You are my master withholding a liquid element
In me you release fluids that hit like a silent tide
A desire that comes with a full force of the fire inside
I crave for the taste of your lips
Your hands on my hips
Your fingers with a tight sensual grip
I dedicate my heart, and my lust
To get lost within every push of your trust
Like a treasure deep underneath the sand
I'm addicted to the feelings you propose within your land
Your hazel eyes are my sunrise
You bring out the obsession,
And my sweet tooth temptation
Like the moon above a misty night
Seducing me in every way in a poetic write
YOU MY LOVE!!!
Your liquid heaven is like the beginning-
-Of my delicious delight!

                  by;p.d.

**A sweet Dedication To Nate**

A Little Foggy

The fog is so thick I can not see the sticks, that in a wasted life,
rise off the dirty grave of the forest floor. 
There is no beauty that could compare to the sight
of the thick ground clouds, that embrace my morning. 
To run through the moisturous blanket into the unseen
and unknown would be a spectacular thrill. 
The cool droplet of water stroking my feet, as they are released from
the tall finger grasses. tickle me kindly. 
I chase the fog as its spread of mystery begins to rise
and confines back up into the sky. 
I reach for the heartbeat of the fog, hoping that surrounding my skin,
with its life, it would carry me away. 
I dance with it deeper into the dense woods, where it awakens the pine trees, 
with its wet breath. 
Higher and higher the fog rises.
I climb a welcoming oak tree,
stretching with its limbs grabbing for the clouds. 
Take me away my morning fog, I want to ride this elevator to the sky,
to the heavens, take me away. 
The fog disappaites and I am left with misty hands and empty eyes. 
I look around clearly, seeing the crispness of nature,
basking in all her beauty 
From the heights of this old oak tree,
I realize... I am lost.

The Devil Is In This Tale


Her insecurity would not let her see, I wanted her! I thought she knew, my heart was opened. I should've asked. She walked on a thread, fourteen stories high to cross from her building to mine. The devil at her side, he cut her angel wings, watched her drop, caught her in his wicked trap. She was weak from years of abuse. I heard her yell. "Promise me this, what I sign affects me and only me." The devil answered, "I promise!" No he did not lie. Still for he It was Goodbye. She signed his contract blind. It was me she had dealt for. Afraid to believe. Scared to accept, what she knew, what she felt. Her sense of trust for anyone long ago expired! The man with the black blood ignored me! I felt him; his chill was in the air. Punished to live forever cold. Even his pit of endless fire barely took the edge off. ”My misery of doubt is at an end!" she said. He lowered his head in shame. That too was his curse, he still felt remorse No matter how briefly. She had to have me unconditionally. If only she had known, she already owned me. Her depth and strength impresses me yet I know she could not stop what she had started. She signed in blood, signed to guarantee she would never again be alone, never again be without love! I knew he was at our wedding, I heard the chatter of his teeth. When I said I do it was Lucifer who stood there him who heard my truth. Without changing a thing, his contract he fulfilled. I could only smile. How cold he is, the pain he sustains for the decision he had made, when he left heaven's gate! She hugged him on his way out. I believe now, as I did then, as I always will for a brief moment, his teeth stopped. For just seconds while in her arms he felt warm. I wonder what he thought. Let the celebration begin she owns me, it's off to our room to be alone and in bed. In what we did, we felt as if we were walking innocently along a beach on the Caribbean Sea I am the town she grew up in, her friend her partner, and yes I am her lover. For that her soul she traded. She had her man. My soul she saved, my human form hers, her kindness I return in something I know though still in my youth my card would fall early from the deck. Yes he knew it too my time was short. I have only ten years left. I held my wife all that time, made with her children from paradise! He could not strike a deal in which he did not cheat. He thought, ten years was for him a good deal. The final laugh is mine, with my Angel on my side I strike a deal, trade my soul for my wife’s. The devil acts unattached. I beat him. He'll feel colder now, that's the deal. His warmth he seeks, in any soul he can deceive. Now her soul he'll never have. It is I who wins. I who is eternally damned. In my death my love, a woman of substance knows how dearly I worshiped her, knows her true worth. She will live into her nineties happy in the knowledge she was loved for who she was - we were always one. My Angel through my coffin explains to me no soul is damned, when an act is selfless. My wife and I will meet again! So our story ends, but not before we hear a sound, the echo of teeth that chatter. Chatter louder than ever. It is literally A Cold Day In Hell!

Paranoid love

Tell me that this fear is just paranoia in my mind, 
we're not straining, we're not struggling, 
we're not sinking, we're just fine. 
I'm not perfect my dearest, but damn have I tried, 
and I'll try harder but I know I'll have the same results every time. 
Do you want me all the ways that I am? 
With all the struggles and the tears and the clinging to your hand. 
I fear your getting further and Im left on the shore to stand, 
watching you in the distance with a bullet in my hand. 
Tell me all this worry, its just clutter in my mind, 
tell me not to worry that we're doing just fine. 
Cause Im scared to run you off and I feel Im falling deep. 
And Im so frightened of these thoughts that its getting hard to sleep.
All I know is that the heart wants what it desires, 
because of you the match inside has turned into a fire. 
And I feel the broken glass thats sticking from my skin, 
Wondering if you'll remove the pain or push it back in. 
My hearts frantic wondering if you feel the same, 
pleading and begging for more than just a saying, 
but to feel and to see that im not alone, 
with being in this love thats overwhelming. 
Once I told you that we didnt have a spark, 
but you were lighting up and I was sitting in the dark. 
And this fire, this blaze its wrapped in desire. 
Im terrified to lose you, I think I might die or, 
maybe disappear from all the pieces falling out, 
im going crazy but when i open my mouth, nothing comes out, 
and I cant explain to you why I just need to hold you close, 
why every time you leave Im scared to let you go, 
why these tears are building up behind my eyes, 
all I know is that the heart wants what it desires 
and it desires to be your wife. 
So tell me in my panic, that your words are true, 
tell my my dearest what I mean to you, 
tell me that this paranoia is all within my mind 
we're not struggling, we're not sinking tell me we're just fine

What if it's true

How would you change?
If it were all true.
Heaven and Angels..
watching over you?

Is there Paradise in
..the hereafter?
Some just don't..
think things matter.

What if Swarms of angels..
like butterflies.
Came to earth..would you realize?
That everything matters
that life's the prize.
How long will it take..
till you recognize..

What if the sun went dark.
What if it were true?
Would you change your ways?
Have a new point of view?

What if the Four horseman..
came galloping in?
Would your conscience feel clear?
Would you regret a sin?

Our toys are just toys..
It's not about money.
It's about loving each other..
and holding your honey.

It's about time..
and what we do with it.
Get up and dance..
or choose to sit.

The choice is yours.
So what will you do?
Will you change your ways?
What if it's true?

Shining beautiful

Hot sexy beautiful awakening 
Rising out from the ashes 
Alone breathing silently in thoughts
an amazing dream begins to shine

I felt the sun with her gentle fingers
softly touching with her light 
Stepping outside yawning, birds of all kinds 
whistling in choir 
Looking across the mountains
felt warm weaving love 
Gently brushing softly
within a warm sweet gentle, kissing breeze

Looking down through the valley
sweeping out towards, the great Atlantic sea
So many beautiful colors in blossom
Looking towards the sky, white mother of pearl clouds
dancing softly across vision
Her color a Heavenly baby blue

At that moment in time, searching 
inside wonderful thoughts
They were sweetly kissing you
far away in a distant paradise
Always and forever golden 
treading these sands
To walk hand in hand with you
sweet angel of love
Warm are the footprints that treads 
Softly landing on the deepest sands

Entering the heart
through the eyes of a soul
Captured in this vision
from inside out 
A picture beautiful dream
sweetly smiles on you love

FOR RACHAEL

Oh sky look down on this earth of gray,
Something dreadful on the horizon looms.
There is no black and no white today,
Laws exist but justice is doomed.

Morality is labeled religion,
And must be separated from state,
Whose own religion is political correctness
And determining God's fate.

Oh heaven rain down on us,
Ae are tasting your tears.
Yes we've become that bad,
Confirming your fears,

That what has been done ,
Is being done again,
Those lessons taught,
Coming to naught.

Judges and laws make it legal,
To be rid of your innocent babes,
Under a symbol of the eagle, 
God's loving justice betrayed.

Racheal you cry the tears,
That now only heaven supplies,
Because ours have dried,
In the dust of our alibies.

Excuses and lies are linked,
As you and I know well,
The truth is all but extinct.
Truth is foreign to hell.

Oh heaven, look down on this world of gray.   
Something dreadful is watching and looms.
Is there nothing left but to watch and pray,
While Rachael wails by the dumpster tombs?

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.

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!

Heaven or Hell

Made my choice
I always wear 
the blessed Bennedict cross
scared of the Devil himself
for my soul protection

I saw the faces twisted in agony 
mouths open screaming arms out
pleading with love to be saved
inside a moving mass of pain in Hell

I walked in the burning darkness 
suffering pains a zombie for my sins 
a blind existence inside one shell
I had no one other than family 
to call upon as friends
 
Seeing suffering tortured souls 
what they done to me 
Trusted to easily 
used and stole from in my charity 

Born under the wolf moon 
always watching in the shadows
a mountain climber by birthright 
Howling into a cold loneliness one fight
with the heavens inside at war 

Brought to my knees in the all forgiving face 
of God cured of cancer one miracle 
I know destiny again 
coming out from arising sun
I bow humble and meek
I will be stronger for living 
knowing where to place my trust

Smiling always with friends
because I see now love
It is you who makes 
each and every single world go around

I walk now towards your light
forgiving my past
Ready to face this big bad world again
only now I am stronger seeing hope
always praying for you love
No redemption in Hell
it just keeps getting worse

Heavenly Striptease

as I stand here and gaze
into the heavens
this dark, inky sky
ahhh . . .
now I see you my love
my bright, shining Gibbous Moon
the dark cloud
moved on into the night
showing the heavens my spirituality
for we are as one
whether you are a mere Crescent Moon
timidly showing
mere tantalizing part of you
we may only guess
what is hidden
in the darkness which is you
its as if you are having wicked fun
at my expense
time gives me the taste of
your delicious and tempting Half Moon
glow of iridescence revealing
more of yourself
although it seems the more you show
the more is hidden
you are playing me an exotic dance
befitting your lofty aspirations
an enticing, though half naked smile
I stand there
wishing the nights would flow faster
as each night
slowly evolves into the next one
you know I will
be there again and again
waiting
patiently waiting
for your final unveiling
and shows me
your patient lover
you in all your majestic glory
a huge, bright and lustrous
Full Moon rising
I almost sob

JESUS THE CHRIST

Isaiah saw the Lord very high – very lifted up
Saw the glory of God – totally filling the Temple
And it transformed Isaiah’s life completely.
Now he could answer the call for God’s service
Willing now to go in Jehovah’s power – not his own.
How do you view Christ your Redeemer today?
As God Almighty – Creator of the universe?
Or simply as a Baby in the manger of Bethlehem?
Or a miracle worker of ancient times?
Or just a man dying a repulsive death on a cross?
Is He just an historical figure to you?
Yes, He is Bethlehem’s Babe, Galilee’s Miracle man
And God dying a painful death on Calvary.
He lived and died millennia ago – for you – for me.
But He hasn’t been dead all these thousands of years,
They laid Him in a borrowed tomb –
But He burst forth – alive in wondrous power!
Beyond the grasp of death and the grave!
He broke the grip of the enemy and won the victory.
He showed Himself alive for many days
And ascended back to the Right Hand of God the Father.
He sent back that mighty power – The Holy Spirit
To live within our hearts and lives every day.
Now, can you envision Him today – very high and lifted up?
Will you bow before Him in worship as Isaiah did?
See yourself lowly and powerless – Him all powerful?
For you see, we must decrease while He increases
So that our hearts become His home – with Him on the Throne.
And we present our bodies as a living, holy sacrifice,
Which because of His mercies, is a wise response.
So that we are not conformed to this wicked world,
But that we become transformed in word and deed
By the same Power that raised Jesus from the dead,
Which now lives within our mortal bodies!
Does He live and reign in your heart and life every day?
Have you accepted Jesus Christ as your Savior?
What then shall you do with Jesus who is called Christ?

I Do Believe

"I Do Believe" 

The purpose of LIFE is to {Living In Faith Ever} 
to enrich God within us 
to an optimum level 
so that We as Humans 
can be guided by God 
to fuel out brothers and sisters 
with the same driving force 
to connect with the living God, 
to His existence and 
to See the Invisible, 
Believe the Incredible, and 
to Receive the Impossible 
to our everlasting journey 
to Heaven.

Moments In Time

The sweetest sounds of burning trees
A gentle stroking in the breeze
The calm has lasted past the storm
Cloudy visions, Satan’s roar
Too many sights have passed my way
A time found only in the haze
The softest screams are running bare
My aching bones creak as I stare

You walk a distance towards me
The fall’s eternal, can’t you see?
I’m a memory in your heart
I whisper to you in the dark

The battle’s started at the end
No one is coming to repent
The sinners grab their wine from prey
No judgment calling here to stay
The sport is reckless to be told
The one is laughing at his souls
It falters nowhere to be sure
The power grows forevermore
Like a spirit in the wind
I have no say in where you’ve been 
But cross the line to come to me
And pay the price for ecstasy

You walk a distance towards me
The fall’s eternal, can’t you see?
I’m a memory in your heart
I whisper to you in the dark.

Twigs

Twigs

Flowers bloom
And flowers wilt.
Flowers blush
And flowers fade.
The eternity is only in me-
The twig that bears the flowers.

Sparrows are born
And sparrows die.
Sparrows fly
And brighten the sky.
That who nurtures sparrows is me-
A cozy make of a twig upon a twig.

The sun fades
And moon is born.
The twilight blurs
And moonlight spreads.
All the soothing moonlight beams are me-
A crisscross of unfathomed twigs.

Whether in its birth
Or in its death;
In the heart
Of its heart;
The entire beauty is none but one-
A design of mysterious twigs.

A Beautiful Reverie

Here I lie beside you
My heart goes thump.thump.thump.
My soul dances inside you
Reveling in the texture of your own.
Electric and flowing 
The currents of our love
Glow like neon lights
Illuminating the hope in my eyes.
Though we're not moving
I feel so incredibly alive
Invincible to my past
Untouchable by all who lack
That gentle touch of when 
You lean in and brush my face
Your lips grazing my skin
Softer than a butterfly.
And then you gaze into my eyes
I fall into your depths 
Twirling like the autumn leaves
Melting into your smile 
Your soul reminiscent of summer.
You pull me into your arms 
And for a moment I'm lost 
Breathless and in awe
Staring in the face of pure exquisite love 
And there you are - holding it 
Glowing in the moonlight of my stare.
My heart beats - its drum pounding away
Echoing a song thats lost its words
I touch your cheek and smile
My hands cant stay away
My lips s l o w l y, draw near yours
Hovering, and then - 
Part, a soft warmth against them.
My eye lids pulling shut
Dragging me into a silent heaven
I pull away - and what seemed millennia
Lasted only a moment, a second in time
But this is our love
This is what you do to me
You make me invincible and fragile
Lost forever in a beautiful reverie.

Lupita's Request

Lupita…forgive me, 
For I would never sin from these 
lips, 
Such words that would spoil the beauty 
of your existence;
But if you requested such a crime, I’d argue 
for remnants of your time, 
And charm you as my fatal audience. 

Of these things I would cite verbally, 
Would be the origin of shape, gifted upon 
your figure, 
Those curves that gave birth to the unpredictable
patterns of life, 
Swaying the adoration of midnight flesh, into these
new testaments of woman. 

How simply intoxicating is this craving?
To bear witness to chocolate unspoiled, as it lay 
peacefully naked over maker’s canvas; 
Let it not melt away, before millions can sample its 
sensuous glow. 

Perhaps art can be reborn from such stillness, 
While wasted labels could fade into retirement, 
Convincing the almighty to revise the structure of 
Eve, 
And acknowledge this last miracle…Lupita. 

What else could be molded from this paradise, but a
Queen’s thoughts and motives? 
If there is nothing but truth in this crime, then I’ve painted 
the solitude of heaven, perfectly.

Groundswell Girl - Named by JB

Enter a storybook tale
Where I can be 
The heroine you hail
Lucid dreams of soft reflection
A touch heated with lust and desired protection
A breathe a gasp as we succeed 
Join the fairytale with me
Valiant night within dark eyes
the right movement and I make them shine
like moonlight on the steamy hot spring
care to follow for a little dip with me
Trailing like the water at my fingertips
Grasp me around my hips
As close as the breeze on my skin 
Whisper lies as I let you in 
Lips mumbling up my thighs
bare heart exposed to the sky 
fire burning in my veins
Am I a mistress of this lust or simply a slave
Trembling with desire
Take me till we've lost count of the hours
enter this storybook tale
Where I can be the heroine you hail

Gift of a friend

I remember meeting you,
I was young girl lost,
You reached your hand and showed me the entrance to twilight,
Between heaven and earth,
We dances on the crystal water, 
While the fish swam beneath us in circles, 
You taught me the language of the fairies and how to dance with black wolves,
We howled to the autumn moon,
While running through the forbidden woods
You gave me the key to life,
We soared with the angelic angels into the infinite sky,
 Reaching the stars they showed us the path to bliss, 
Swirling into the galaxy we united into one, 
Swings on vines through the jungle
Eating dinner with the lion king,
And listened to the story of Rama and Sita
But one day you fell into darkness and I chased you into the depts of space,
Reaching my hand you grabbed it,
So let us enter twilight once more between heaven and earth.

YOU BROKE ME

What makes me human is You
You who broke me and push me through
Yes,though You know I was not strong
You caused me to cry or so long
So many times I ask if You really exist
Though many times also You heard my pleas
I was so wrong to blame You for all my sadness
For truly it is You who brings gladness

So many times You tried to break me before
But I was so hard and rebelled more
Yet You never stopped breaking me
Coz You were concerned of what my future could be
You never wanted me to go the wrong way
That's why You wanted me to pray
So You could guide me everyday
Until into my bed i lay

From a frozen heart You broke me to become human
For my heart never melts though put under the sun
You changed my whole being
I was changed by the grace of Your loving
Because You care so much about me
You wanted me to live with you in heaven for eternity,
For the chance to be with You forever
YOU BROKE ME to become a person much better

Thank You Father or breaking me to a new person
I didn't understand at first for I didn't know the 
reason
Thank You for the tears that have poured out from
my eyes
Thank You for the sorrows that have made me cry
For now I know I'm a new being
Changed by the trials You have given.

A Meeting of Minds

In the silence
 of this crystal night
 shimmering,
 entombed in light,
 we'll tippy toe on the stars 

Moving in a universe
 the tips of our fingers
 write poems in stardust
 as we shift
 the dust of time
 being graced in part,
 a poets Valhalla

Fishing in the black holes
 pulling the next dimension
 through, meeting minds
 from the center of the think
 they ripple with the solar winds
 ghosts of the eternal flame 

Lavender light shaves the moon
 sheets of light trickle in mirrors
 imagination is reborn
 again
 and again

Delphinus Nights

I have flown on wings of dreams, but I never could land well
I've never been to the end of a rainbow and I've never talked to an angel
I could never reach the fleeing horizons and I could never catch the wind
I have never caressed a sliver of moonlight until it touched your skin
When I first saw the beauty of your silhouette standing before the sun
I was the pilot of a new dream landing in your love
Then my tears reflected colors of a rainbow and I could talk to God
I could finally reach the horizons as you woke up in my arms
And I dont care where the winds blow as long as I'm with you
We could float into forever where Delphinus stars may bloom
Where time is never the difference between nights and days
We could cast our shadows from moonlight as we let our hands play
Plucking beautiful flowers from heaven until the end of times 
Planting new celestial gardens beyond our endless skies

Wisps

"Friend,
Mind wandering through misty woods.
You don't understand your purpose.
Friend,
I knew you too little,
Please do not shed your salty emotions,
Not out of anger, not out of sadness.
Friend,
You now lose your way so easily,
You sink, you burst, you burn inwardly.
You weep from frustrations, 
From the guilt of an honest smile,
From pains, that you forget for a moment,
That come swiftly back to haunt you of your loss.
I understand, dear friend.
You once had a light and the woods seek to snuff it out.
Do not fear, dear friend,
Friend follow me, as I once did you.
Friend, now you see?
Yes, you see,
The little wisps in the fog that guide us home."

~In memory of Bill Hamman, and all else who have suffered the pains of Alzheimer's

Heaven Remade

Angels falling
From man's heaven onto man's land
This world is hell, blooming
And blood and fire, and roses
And wounds and pain, and love
And me, fighting again

Feathers swirling
Cut off from darkened wings, bleeding
Sliced and torn in an endless dive
Tears of life, crimson
Sometimes flying, mostly failing
From man's heaven onto man's land
Heaven in hell and hell in hell

Angels bleeding
The bliss of pain, cut me again
Wings I do not want
Bound to a fake sky
Chained to a cruel Earth
Hell everywhere, blooming
Reality, crash into it
And blood and fire, and roses
And wounds and pain, and both
And you, smiling maybe

In the Face of Death

Entry for the contest: World or War: Viet Nam
Author:  Elaine Geroge
Inspired by:  the Picture of the soldier’s 
carrying their wounded comrade through
the Viet Nam Jungle.  In this poem, it is
the soldeir on the left.

~~~~~


I dream of heaven here on earth,
where I walk in meadows green,
in the Blue Ridge Mountains, of Virginia
beside a mountain stream;
where rainbow coloured - wild flowers, 
swaye upon a breeze;
and leafy emeralds blossom,
on the limbs of lofty trees.

There in those hills where I was born
 ‘Heather’ waits for me; 
my love, my wife, I see her now
in every breath I breathe.

And I dare not cast my eyes 
 upon this grim reality;
here in Viet Nam,
where thorns and bards on gnarled trees, 
hold me in this hell- hole, 
in an endless muddy stream,
filled with blood, and sweat, and tears,
and victories broken dream.

And I dare not free my hands, 
to wipe away these tears I cry,
I can not! I must not!  for if I do,
 my brother dies!

So with every single beat, 
of this patriotic heart,
staring in the face of death, I march -
I march through Hell, 
And dream of Heaven here on Earth

The Constellation of The Christ

(Rev. 1: 20 / Rev. 2: 1, 28 / 2 Pet. 1: 19 / Rev. 22: 16)
(Matt. 27: 45 / Mark 15: 39 / Luke 23: 44)



The Constellation of The Christ
Includes The Bright Morning Star of Life
and Seven Stars Held In His Hand
Each Shines For Seven Congregations of Man

And Shining Near & Shining Far
Thru Time & Space Is That DayStar
and Where That DayStar Rise In Hearts
All Will See The Spectacular Start!

The Constellation of The Christ
Shone Brightest At His Sacrifice
For At High Noon! Darkness Covered The Land
When They Killed GOD's Son - The Son of Man ...

And A Roman Soldier After It Was Done
Even Knew and Said:  "This Was GOD's Son"
And A Darkness Covered The Entire Earth!
Because  JEHOVAH's  Heart Had Been Hurt ...

And In That Unusual, Storm-Dark Sight
The Universe ... Focused On That One Light!
Hung and Offered To Heaven's Throne
Was Lifted Up & Afterwards Went Home

For It Was From Above That Star Descended
And So Back To Heaven That Star Ascended
So The Breach Between Heaven & Earth Was Mended
& The Darkness of Death's Space Was Ended 

And Now, That Star Shines In The Sky
And Now, That Star Will Never Die
He's With The Father of Celestial Lights
Dwelling Where Its Unapproachably Bright!

But The Constellation of The Christ
Beckons Us Close To Eternal Life
And No Sights of Powerful Pulsars & Quasars
Can Compare To The Constellation of Our Savior

Christ Told Us To Let Our Faith Lights Shine
& Follow The Course of His Constellation Signs
and The Constellation of The Christ
Will Shine Forever Over Us In Paradise

Grandma

There's not much to say.
I knew her, know some things,
but certainly not all.

I know how little she put up with fools,
how her cooking surpassed so many others',
how simultaneously sweet and hard she could be.
I know about her smoking,
about her jewelry, her faith,
all these I'll hold close to me.

Every single spark, every star,
shines with such a glow, such a marvelous radiance,
that we can't gaze too closely at it,
lest we cause ourselves pain.
And yet, despite ourselves, again and again,
we do;
because it's not within us to resist
the sheer beauty of it all,
of stories and of life.

A bouquet of tulips for you.
We all miss you already, Grandma.
I miss you.
I know Heaven's got you, taking no guff as always,
making sure we're all doing alright.
I love you.

leaving August

        Leaving the last days of August
          memories of the sea waves crashing 
        Tides that leave shells broken to find ~
        
        picnic memories ~
                      fireworks night 
                             Birthday cakes sparkle ~

    sunburns under a sage kissed dessert Moonlight 
         The Summer reminds us of happier days
             scents of coconut oil and lime 
        
            reminds us all of what is yet to come ~
              
              The rain comes down hard
          crying for all souls lost and left behind

             The birds fly in perfect form 
           reminding all of the September storm 
             
           begging for history not to repeat ~
 
                 ~   In war 
                        no wins 
                            only defeat ~
 
            two beams of light straight to the Heavens   
                stay through the whole month of September
                   they remind us to listen silently we stand still 
          
          For the city lives and breaths left with loss 
                    many questions unanswered remain ~
                  
               Leaving behind August
                    entering Septembers fears ~
               
                          
                             



 I love this poem because it reflects on the past and the coming month in remembrance of history that took place September 11th 2001. In a way it is a oxymoron . from passionate summer nights to the fear embraced in the month coming :)

The Autumn Affect

There's something unspecific about the autumn nights
A certain shade of color that uplifts my inner child's eyes
Beside a cashmere moon Venus and Jupiter shine bright
Complimented by a sea of blinking infinite twilight
The scent of burning oak lingers in the air from home made fires
Reminiscent of a time when this man was just a child
Careless and so free to dream and any dream to live
Like feathers floating across a field carried by the wind
As a gentle breeze blows through the leaves shivering delightful gloom
Unlike flowers of springtime the disheveled autumn vibrance bloom
Leaves crackle beneath my feet along the skeleton tree path
Where I try to find my peace or a song to make me laugh
The air is so much crisper and also soothing when I breathe it in
Underneath a starry sky and brighter constellations of Heaven
Amidst the trail I pass a lovely couple holding hands
While their children run aside frolicking in a playful dance
An old man and his wife admire the view from a wooden bench 
With smiles on their face as if nostalgia is still their closest friend
Its these specific autumn affects that bring me sorrows and joy
Reminding me of all theses things Ive wanted as a man since I was a little boy 
Its times like these that I wish I wasn't always so alone
Because I would light an fire with my family and call it home

My Beloved

Hey Mr. Editor,
It's not very often we hear true stories of enduring Love that grows with time. I can 
hear the cynic groan as I write this, but it's a good human interest story and I 
thought a good one for the coming of spring, a time of new birth and new beginings. 
There is a couple who met while in school, years ago.  After graduation they both 
were seperated by thousands of miles; both got married to different people 
sometime later and raised their young families.  All this time their love remained 
silent, waiting, yet strong.  Today, their children are adults and about to venture on 
their own lives. Reconnected once more, perhaps by fate, they have planned to wed 
very soon.  I was asked by the Bride-to-be, a dear friend, to write a poem on her 
behalf which she would read to her Groom at their Wedding Ceremony. I was truly 
honored and graciously obliged. It's titled,"My Beloved.  Thank you for your 
consideration of my request.

My Beloved, Today, I can not say that dreams do not sprout wings! Nor will I ever accuse time of being an adversary Not when I know that within its grasp lies our past, present and future Today, my heart is full and overflowing with abundant joy! Gazing into your beautiful soul, I glimpse love’s sparkling reflection Streaming like a river, endless, into vast ocean tides And I stand in awe of God’s everlasting love and providence The sweetest portion of which we have come to taste! For so long I have waited! How I have yearned for this moment When I would pledge life and love to you; become one flesh, one heart! One heart that will bleed no more as nothing can stand between us I will lose myself in you and you in me forever! No longer will dreams haunt our lonely nights And I will not have to walk this side of Heaven without you When I consider the paths which we have traveled I marvel and smile, as now it is clear - they were leading us to, this day! In the silence of a thousand nights my prayers to heaven took flight And though seasons of yesterdays came only to fade away Time, it seemed, had shelved my fervent plea ‘Til sweet destiny obliged, leading me to the one who holds my heart My Beloved, my husband, my best friend, and companion, Our love has arrived; our single journey begins today!

New Stars Are Formed

Strange colored skies climb northernly this night
Calling our future with wild deamons eyes
Abscure as the creatures who answer the call
Wild are the answers of the reasons and the faults
Certain as the well swept winds
Alluring in it's grasp fought negatively through single wins
I pray twords the skies and it curdles and swims
Thoughts twords the sun and it scorches my rims
Carry me far enough I can be within your sights
Stash us away and the sun will be bright
Motors may break but oceans will be light
I will stay on the coast and wait 
The award I will do is make the evening a minute late
Parched is the gulf as the single minute breaks
Great is the second docks a seperate mans gate

The Earths crust slowly begins to crumble
It quivers, then quakes, it slowly opens, the rivers break
A star is born somewhere, a beautiful new star
Great is the struggle, born from the heavens a small light it makes

The new star pulls, it turns, then it feeds and it's fuel it burns
Gently it orbits following all things it understands
The new star bends it dances it stands
Tancing outwardly as creations comprehend

A continient wavers as the new star binds its brand
It feeds off of our oceans as our tides wash in
It goes just as softly forward and back
As the rays of its placement barrow up to the sun
We watch very carefully because it's damages are already done

A Prayer For Strength To Be Yourself

It's hard doing something different.
It's difficult staying yourself.
In a world so accustomed to conformity,
It feels nearly impossible to be unique
As the one He created you to be.
How do we find the strength?
How do we find the courage?
How do we find the bravery?
Where do we defeat fear?
Well, He's hanging on The Cross
Giving life to you and me.
Thank You Jesus!
Let us not forget
With Christ,
Nothing is impossible,
For with God,
All things are possible!
Thank You Father!
Thank You!
We give our lives to You!
We are Yours!
Praise You forever
And forevermore!
In Jesus' Name,
We pray,
Amen!

The Storm

And the storm calls to me in ways you'll never understand
A gentle call that urges my soul forth
The lighting guiding a path for my feet to walk
Between the stones and ash of all that once was
I stand in the echoing silence of the rain 
It drops down upon my skin like the blessing waters of heaven
Soothing me, lifting the weight from my body 
I feel at once as if I am home
Standing amid two dimensions 
Caught between two skies - here and there
The night wraping around me in warmth
The gentle wind lifting me off my feet
Drops from the clouded moon washing away my body
and I am left just a soul, an essence 
The storm calls me forth from beneath my roof
Beckoning me into its depth 
I stand among the reeds in the basin 
They dance and sway as if welcoming me
And I sway with them back 
Caught up in the power that charges the air
That threatens to sweep me away 
If the ground will just loosen its hold
The thunder rumbles a low welcoming growl
And I get pleasently lost within it
I am so small compared to its vastness
I close my eyes and succumb to the skies wishes
Rising higher until my feet no longer touch the ground 
My fingertips touch the liquid color of the stars
A sigh drifts from my lips
There is no need of thought to stay afloat
There is no demand to breathe in air
No crushing weight upon my chest
As my lungs struggle to survive
There are no struggles here
I make my bed on blackened clouds
And give in to the call
The storm has claimed me as its own 
It was such a struggle to stay upon the ground
When the storm would call me home

Life in Cubicle

The Noose is tightening.
The 5’s and 10’s yanked from our hands and aching backs 
Are spent on band-aids:
A last stand effort to plug the holes in our hearts
When the price of drowning is only getting higher
So we turn to tiny acts of thievery
Taxes prettied up, cashiers uncorrected,
Stealing at the edges because we’re backed into corners, 
Corners
Glittering with promises corners
Dripping with possibility,
With Island resort wallpaper
Sold in bulk at Wal-Mart for
Profit: A trail of crumbs called America-
Which has curdled our souls and we love it!
And hate it and gossip about it and think obsessively about it and then
We find the most expensive friends our looks can afford,
Shopping for substance (50% off)
Staring through the eye of a screen 
Light speed in pursuit of heaven on earth (Ignore the plastic)-
Until pop!
We die of ADHD. 
Never having had the chance to smell the genetically modified roses.
Never having had the chance to see through this kingdom of ideas
As we served out our sentence to life in cubicle.

Last Kiss

Open your eyes to the ever turning skies 
I want to here with me through the night 
My heart yearns into your soul 
Burning as if newly lit coal 
I bravely submerg the embers 
That the time I have can be spent with you 
And I remember each kiss every moment 
I was caught in your love that for just this day I remember 
So what happened was a chance for your love 
A time that I kept in a locket tied with a kiss 
 I wanted you to feel, to love, to slumber 
And to awake in my arms with that times kept bliss 
I lay silient in an umber

Macrocosm Lights

Look deeper inside the universe and you will find it's brilliant mind
Transcranial stimulation directing intelligent design
The Heavens celestial is the body of an eternal dream within it's own
A window into the galaxies where the heart is connected to it's soul
While event horizon reflects a dark side there is still a beauty to behold
Through parallel dimensions and wormholes into eternities of the great unknown
Where there is only the absence of time and space, a beginning without an end
Floating through the Milky Way across a gentle stellar wind
Deep into the macrocosmic silence I close my eyes and disappear 
Awaiting on the other side is the golden thrones of new frontiers 
Unto the nebula of Orions belt you can feel the gift of life
A place one day we'll again call home as we ascend into its light

Bravery

It's not a lesson to be taught
Or a skill to be acquired
It's the nudge to move forward
Open when the time is right
It's the spirit inside
God leading on the way
On the journey to discover
He is all you need
It's the courage to let go
Say yes instead of no
Reveal what you've been holding back
As Jesus takes the wheel
It's the realization that it doesn't matter
What others think of you
God leads you where you're meant to be
Just allow you to be you
It's the standing up to fear
Proclaiming "fear's not gonna win!"
The battle has been fought too long
Time to let the stalemate end
It's the inspiration you've been holding
For others and for yourself
The light we've been dimming
Rather than shining on His behalf
It's the spontaneity in the decision
To follow His call all the way
Discovering peace in being you
Wide open as the perfect creation you are
The world out there is brutal
But there's a Holy Man holding out His Hand
His bravery now is all we have
But His bravery of love is all we need
May God bless you!

You are~
The queen of hive~keeping a universe of sweetness alive.
The richness of air~ more richness than a gem or bank can bare.
The float of a boat~the ink of a love note.
The warmth of a coat~the warmth of prevailing hope.

With a billion brilliantly buffed  stars you shine~a shine in the night of my mind.
You are the eloquence of glistening and glamorous Fiji waters~beauteous waves of mind.
A Unhurried dulcet substance steaming ahead~honey flowing through your veins.
I can visualize your golden veins,coiling on the
bars of heavens divine gates ~ your soul the key to heaven.
I'm  sure a blind man can see you, I'm sure women would love to be you~ I'm sure though I haven't seen you.

Perhaps I seen you in
the rose I smelled yesterday
the sun of today
the mystical formation of
comely clouds. 
perhaps I seen you girdled in 
trees of fortitude,may be you
are the the fortifier of it all,the
beautifier of all roses standing tall.

You are the first steps of a baby
that once use to crawl,supportive
to all.You are the benign tender of
a baby's BIRTH~


So go ahead ask me what your WORTH,
and yes baby people like you is the 
restoration of EARTH.


So go ahead ask me what your WORTH,
And i'll say YOUR  WORTH MORE THAN EARTH!!!

Your birth chained heaven to earth~
A visible but invisible cord the doctors couldn't Cut,

BUT guess what these words came from the heaven in my GUT!!!

In My Little Garden

You'll probably find me in my little garden
With my big floppy straw hat upon my head,
And dirt on my hands digging in rich black soil.
I'm always fiddling with my garden beds,
Planting ground cover between the plants,
Blue little petals with heart-shaped leaves.
Some bloom early and some bloom late,
But the anticipation is worth the wait.

A gentle breeze like butterfly wings
Lifts sweet aromas from my blooms.
Honeysuckles, alyssums and gardenias,
Flowers of reddish pink, purple and white,
Stretch and yawn towards the sun.
A true show that spoils the eyes and heart.

Please come and sit a spell and we can chat,
And enjoy my little garden of zen.
Ice tea or peach schnapps, if you wish.

Daybreak

I wake on the sand
Right near the beach
You have yet to awake
Far out of reach
And Daybreak has arrived
A beauty unlike any other
Comparable only to us, girl
And how we love each other

So I gaze up alone
Marveling up at the sky
The warmth of the sun
Drying my eyes
I'm reflecting on us
Oh how each other we trust
I'm just so happy we're together
And I think to myself,
Just as this sun, we'll last forever

Then returning to be with you
I lay again now
Place my hand gently
On your warm tender shoulder
While I think of our lives today, love
And how they'll be when we're older...
I know there'd be no other way
So "I Love You" I make sure I say
To you, each and everyday

In God's Hands

  I am malleable in God’s hands, 
No one can shape me like He can, 
He never gives me anything that I can’t handle, 
He always knows what He is doing, 
No one can compare to Him, 
He is the father I never had, 
I can truly trust, love, and honor Him, 
Because He made me, 
He loves me, 
And I love Him, 
I will never be able to put my heart into someone else’s hands with such trust!
Because He is love! 
And I am His. 
- Inspired by Jeremiah 18:6

Will We Know Him

Will We Know Him?

Will we know Him if He stood in front of us?
If He walked by us on the street?
Will we know Him?
If we have a chance to meet Him in our  lifetime?
In that split second that we meet Him?
Our eyes met for the first time?
Will we know Him?
Yes reading the moment we stood side by side?
Our smiles are very clear
Our heart jumps around
Yes we do know Him?
That look, and that feeling
When we know we've found our home
Yes we do know Him
Yes we know what to say to Him
As we walk away together
Yes we know Him as He knows us His children
We are finally together

The Glass Goddess

All around me
Great cities made of sand.
Green sky scrapers poke through the ground 
To thrive in life’s strict conditions
And melt away with the tide…

Great houses made of cards
Form lines, and tightrope walk existence,
Knowing that any moment, the wrong brick may fall
And buckle our world to its knees
As Mother Earth shouts Jenga! from the sidelines.

So while were here
We dance with the Glass Goddess 
Poised miles above reality,
Leaping over the heavens on our domino stilts-

We floor it in the sky
Living death in the fast lane, 
Seizing the day
Because any moment 
We could disappear 
Into

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.

Carry My INK FATHER

Thank you for your grace, your mercy and everlasting love Father. Thank
you for giving me the strength to endure another day. Forgive me
for my sins I've committed. I come to the
realization that day-to-day my eyes will
face temptations. I'm lured by the 
beauties of envy, greed, anger,
jealousy, lust and fornication.
Saved I am, though not
perfect; but with your
tools, I pray to
overcome my
sinful fixations.
Right over wrong
indeed I stand;
it's majority of the
wrong that over
powers the right in
most situations.
Understandably,
it's all apart of the
flesh's gravitation for
a craving appetite for 
sinful sensations. Spiritually,
I refuse to become stagnant; mimicking
the gestures of still waters while observing
nature's sin waltz about society in a circular
motion across the nation. Therefore, I will testify

Emptiness camouflaging along with feelings

After a business tour 
I returned to empty home
Wife and kids had been away
enjoying holiday at her mothers home 

Everything was same
TV, Fridge, Oven, Music System 
accepting my operating command as before
bed, sofa, reclining chair all comforting my body

Missing was the vivacious vibrancy  
of laughter, arguments, silence, love and affection
Walls, curtains, photo frames, flower vases staring at me 
Tongue and ears  jobless, eyes doubling up for speech and sound  

No one to offer glass of water or cup of tea
Breakfast awaiting preparation by me, and eaten too
Lunch and Dinner from menu delivered by hotel waiter
Nightime no one to kiss goodbye, bother for next day wishes

Learned, not that uninhabited homes only haunt
Clamour of near and dear ones is what actually counts
Amidst noise decibels we try to squeeze out some solitude
Like fools among living souls we often seek silence of graveyard  
 
Telephone bell rings
wife and kids indicate early arrival
Suddenly the empty home turns into lively fair 
staring walls joyous on early prospect of  baby hands caress  

Emptiness camouflaging along with feelings 
Haunting brick and mortar springing into lively atmosphere 
Hated apartment while alone, fool was I to blame innocent structure
Learnt, futile to be in heaven after leaving, create heaven where one is living 

(Entry for Members Contest – Empty Apartment by Matt Caliri )

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

Porn No More

I've watched the war from behind closed doors;
Eyes too glued to close.
And now knowing what's in store, there's porn no more.
God's love is the only hope we know.
We are forgiven because of the love that is Jesus.
We are saved because of the love that is Jesus.
We give our lives to the Father for we are His children and He loves us.
We are loved!
No matter what we've done, we are loved!
Confess and ask for forgiveness;
This is such a beautiful gift!
Thank You God!
Thank You Jesus!
You forgive me!
You save me!
You change me!
I am changed!
I am new!
I am renewed!
I am forgiven!
I am saved!
I am changed!
There's porn no more
For God's hope is in store!
There's porn no more
For God's love is the hope of the world!

Who Is In Charge

Bear no grudge to anyone, nor fear man’s puny wrath

Who makes the thunders roll, or quiet it’s rumbling sounds
Who breathes the breath of life, or takes it with a word
Who makes the winds to blow, or calms the troubled seas
Who fed the children of Israel with manna, when from Egypt they did flee
Who feeds the lilies of the fields, who give the birds their seeds
Who fills the rain with nourishment, then on the fields they gentle fall
Who makes the goats to bring forth kids and the sheep to have its kind
Who makes a woman to have a child and a man the father of it be
Who holds the seas to shore and the river banks from overflowing
Who spreads the stars in space and holds the moon in its place
Who gives earth an axis, so it can revolve around the sun
Who made the sun to rule the day and the moon to shine by night
Who was the light of day to wondering Israel and a flaming fire by night

The Lord, strong and mighty in battle, the Lord of Host is He
So let no one scare you into thinking, they have your life in hand
Only the God of Heaven can say how and where you go
When you put your trust in Him and your faith in Him is whole
He the maker of us be and the keeper of our ways
Bless the Lord for all His grace, in Heaven He prepares for us a place

There Are No Coincidences

For every rose there are six thorns.
Calm is an interlude between two storms.
A judge is a lawyer off his meds.
Life is a road, living it is a rut.
A lion is a tiger on parole.
Moonlight is a reflection from the sun.
A smile is a frown turned upright.
Lust is passion gone astray.
A child is proof that life goes on.
Not every house becomes a home.
A jihadist is Hitler’s bastard son.
The Devil is a psychopath.
For a working stiff job loss is a bitter pill.
To a rich man unemployment is no big deal.
A road less traveled is an awful waste.
Success is failure overcome.
A single grain of corn is a meager meal.
Raindrops are the tears of a caring God.
A politician is a well paid clown. 
All love has the potential for heartbreak.
A loogie is spit on steroids.
The unicorn is a horse’s wet dream.
A tornado is a piss ant hurricane.
Suicide is the proof that you were insane.

My Heart Sings

As the first rays of sunshine
wakes me out of my sleepy slumber,
I sat up in bed and looked at my hands.
The taste of stale cigarette smoke of cheap red wine
stained my taste buds.
I walked out of bed,
turned on the radio
(to the classical station)
and my heart beats to the tune
my life and soul smile as the sun shines in my room.
I hear God whispering in my ear
I hear all the words of the world
talking to me,
and I can hear my heart sing a little.
I read my poetry,
get dressed go for a walk,
I smile at the faces that I pass;
The cars I pass,
the houses,
the trees,
the dry lawns,
burnt and that have not been watered in days.
I smile at them and they all smile back,
and my heart sings a little,
and I dance to its simple tune.

My heart sings and I dance too:
slowly melodies,
fast jigs,
rapid jazz and swing music
and waltzes to the chopin masterpieces,
and the romantic stories, novels, the poems,
that fancy your mind with its ryhme schemes,
and after I read such romantic beauty
I smile, and I listen closely to my heart,
and with every beat,
it lets out a verse or two, from a familiar song
that caught my ear on the radio,
and my heart sings
and I smile,
and the world smiles back.

Feeling such beauty
love and romance
it is such a good feeling to live with;
and as the night rolls on,
and the sun goes away
I sit at my desk
writing poetry,
with a cigarette slowly burning away with time,
and I am stuck,
getting drunk of red wine,
I sit back in my chair,
and listen to my heart,
and he sings alittle
and I can write again.
So, there we sit together,
writing poetry,
smoking cigarettes,
drinking wine
to the strike of nine
and we both sing songs of love and romance
together forever.

Where The Next Dollar Will Come From

I'm worried where the next dollar will come from.
Will she ever arrive?
Will she ever show up?
But why am I worrying?
Stop it!
It's all in God's Great Hands!
It's all under God's control!
It's all within His plans!
It's all His
And He will provide
Because He is our Father!
He loves us!
It's all His!
Trust Him!
I know it's difficult;
He will not lead you wrong.
He knows where you need to go.
He knows what you need to endure.
It's all His plan.
It's all in His Hands!
Lay down your life;
Give the control.
He is in control!
Thank You Father!
Trust Him!
It will all be okay!
Trust Him!
Thank You God!
Thank You Jesus!
Thank You Holy Spirit!
I love You always!
I trust You always!
I trust You!
I trust You!
Yes, yes I do!
I trust You!
I love You!

In his Arms

A story of Faith..
How does anyone explain why they believe the Faith they have .
I can only tell you through the eyes of a 5yr old child .
That child being myself 

so let me rewind a bit in time .
It was preschool to 1st grade , I would fall into a vegetable state at school , with my head down on the desk .
My Mother was a very talented RN and worked in triage at St. Francis Hospital
She would take me to the best of Pediatrics , only to be told ," take her home give her a aspirin,  if fever gets to high , and call us in the morning . 

All I can remember is this.

I was laying on my Mothers bed as from the ceiling it appeared a man that resembled "Jesus Christ ' and his Angels , 6 on each side lifted me from the bed in his arms , and took me to a place of warmth , light and love like I have never felt before since.

I was held by him as he said , you can stay here and no longer feel pain , or you may go back. I wanted so badly to stay , but I thought of my Mothers tears , and I was sent right into my little body again only to miss that feeling I had my whole life "in His Arms "

I got up out of bed , walked to the living room , where I saw my Mother in the distance baking .'  The Grinch whom stole Christmas ' was on TV. I then noticed a tree all lighten up with decorations, I walked  towards my Mom with a blanket in my hand .

My Mom turned and she had a plate of cookies , her face white as a ghost . I asked her " Mommy , Is it Christmas ?  " she started to cry , and held me as she said " Yes Honey , it is , it is Christmas Eve. " as her tears hit my shoulder . I then asked " Why are you crying ? "  Santa Claus is coming ! " I replied,  as happy as a little 5 yr. old could be.

I was taken to a Chiropractor that week ,as a last result , He told her it was simply a miracle I was alive  .  My Spine was out of place and no Oxygen was going to my brain , in one or 2 days , I would be brain dead.

I found out later in my life at 18 yrs. old , it was shaken baby syndrome . My Father confessed to me as he to cried , at his Moms home at Christmas time . He had carried the guilt with him for years . He was a born again Christian , and a new life he had wanted with true forgiveness .

I forgave him , I know the man whom lifted me was Jesus Christ that night , and there is nothing ugly at all there , so I know he to forgave him . 
Since then ..I have never doubted , I know he goes by many names  , It is Jesus Christ all the same .

The Letter

   ...

The Letter

A letter fell from heaven and it landed at my door.
The letter had a message - Cry for me no more.
As I was reading the message, I knew it came
from you.

Where do the souls of our love ones go when they
leave this world? We cry, we suffer and our hearts
are broken, because we won't see them anymore.

The days pass and the months, soon turn into years.
Little by little the pain becomes less. But we still ask 
ourselves - where do the souls go?

The souls go to their destiny. God has a special place
for them. We want to think that everything ends here-
that one day we just go to sleep and we wake up
in a beautiful place called heaven.

I know now that you are in heaven and that you also
watch over me. One day when God calls me - we will 
reunite again. You say that you are happy, that you
feel no more pain.

You tell me not to worry, to go on with my life. This is
just what I will do and whenever I feel sad - I will open
up the letter and read the message again. It is time to
say - good bye dear - I have a smile on my face, because
now I know that you are in a very special place...

Beyond The Distance And The Days

In God together we're together forever

A Star is Born

One kazillion million miles away
Far off in a distant galaxy 
Is the most fascinating phenomenon
It is a star making machine
Berthed from a vast expanse of gaseous matter
Twinkling lights are born
Not a single one like the next
Each with its different elements and colors
Like a magical wand whisking illuminating bubbles
The greatest show this universe has ever seen
One million and one mystical stars have arrived on the scene
Even with the Hubble Telescope
The world’s greatest scientists are unable to comprehend this show
It is truly one of the most fascinating shows in the universe—when a star is born!
A single star
A twisting and twirling gaseous maze of wonder
A single star
Not a single one like another
Jehovah God will not even allow the world’s most sophisticated telescope to unravel the mystery of his stars
It is incomprehensible how the Creator spins the elements
Elements not even known to the human periodic table
He exhales a small puff of his glory upon them and POOF they are born!
In order to see how a star is born you must be a child of the living God
You must travel to the heavens and visit the Observatory Deck
At that moment and only at that moment will the Creator reveal this mystery
The mystery of the universe
How a star is born!

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.

The Harvest

I would that your need
be to find the path straight
that your hearts rise above
and be harvested in glory

I would that the seed
Which was planted with love
be fruitful by faith
and be harvested in glory

I would from the start
that your minds be the same
as the standard you were made by
and was worthy of me even then

I would that your innermost parts
do awake and remember my name
and the hope therein gave I
of glory that transforms the children of men

Whereby understood, when this truth be told
will the doors of my trapped unlock
For the day of my wrath is ever so near
and the time of the harvest of glory

Seek the sheep that are without the fold
for the shepherd soon comes for his flock
Seek the lost that his voice when they hear
may come in and be harvested in glory

For behold I give sight
when the hearts for old reins make amends
for I would that you yet see my face
and great be the harvest of glory

For my flames scorch the night
till they destroy its end
till my waters of Life flow with grace
and you that are mine shall be harvested in glory...


Matt 24:30-31:  And then shall appear the sign of the Son of man in heaven:
                          and then shall all the tribes of the earth mourn, and they shall see the
                          Son of man coming in the clouds of heaven with power and great
                          glory. And he shall send his angels with a sound of a trumpet,
                          and they shall gather together his elect from the four winds,
                          from one end of heaven to the other

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.

Wondering

Time makes me wonder.
The lack of it, does too.
Why is the Earth where it is? 
Why are we standing on it? ...
What is that thing makes each of us, us?
What happens to it when we stop breathing?
Do we just become part of Earth, and watch everything happen?
Do we move to an other planet and adopt an other body?
Do we free ourselves, and fly around?
I imagine the friend I lost, sitting next to me.
Is he here, sharing this joint with me? ... 
Do we stop existing? Staring at the stars, my ignorance becomes obvious to myself.

Does earth shine?
I wonder.
Do we shine as they [The stars] do?
will I ever know?
Time will grant me with the answers, I asure my self.

The smoke is hidding the moon.
I imagine I'm free.
I'm flying around. I'm one with the Earth, and he [My friend] is here with me.
I can see myself from the sky, staring at the hidden moon...

You've fallen down again;
How can you let darkness win?
You just scraped your knee,

Come and take my hand.

And I always will be.
I am by your side,

Benevolent Emotional Rancor

Recanting those memories that we have had, Is all I wanted to do; But, I could feel that they had entirely subsided Deep into my heart, And I feel it will hold the whole life through. Amidst the turmoils in life, I still have those memories; As if they really had aggregated within, Yet, I wish time helps me to extricate, Like a shooting star, hoping to vanish somewhere. No more pains, no more tears Are all I could wish; Because, I really love you that much, Although it hurts me, I need to let go and set you free. Day by day, I storm heaven with prayer, That we'll both find the real happiness; Happiness that is separately in our own, And only heaven knows, When our hearts meet again, never or soon. You must need to know even just through a dream, That I really need your help; Please, come just like a soft and gentle blow of wind, And do whisper into my ears, That I need to be happy; since, God knows what both of us is best. Come and tell me that you also fervently pray, That someday, somehow this emotional rancor of mine; Yet, benevolent will soon be compensated, By someone who will really love me, Love me even more than what you did.

Central Park Looks Beautiful When You Are In Love

Central Park looks Beautiful When you’re In Love


Central Park without the gates of heaven screens;
     It’s heavenly, a poet daring to dream
  Harps and golden crowns of evenly bliss paradise

  Twilight, nylons and panels in the park;
  Where Lover dreams come true with sparks;

Behold the beauty, behold a lover.
Poetic, artistic, romantic, trees and sky liners 
Central Park the gates of heaven in clear view;

 It’s heavenly yet powerful; Poets dreams 
Cristal, Ruby, Diamond, Sapphire Pearl or gold
 Or just chilling its tares amongst the weeds
Strolling or experiencing it’s where lovers meet;
Colorful hot air balloons circle the park
 Bollywood again and again after dark

Purple rain

1)I feel the breeze 
   while i watch the rain
   falling down from heaven
   like drops of tears 
   landing all over green living things

2)Fleshly creatures are running wild
   looking for cover 
   while the earth drinks up joyfully
   all of the sudden
   lighting strikes the ground
   without warning
   as if heaven was mad at the earth

3)Three seconds later
   heaven speaks  with great authority 
   the world shakes with fear

4)Earthly creatures witnessed the event
   yet we cannot understand 

5)Only nature knows
   what the heavenly father says

       GOD IS AN ARTIST.

And the grace of His Father's love
Am I able to be set free.

The Only Hope in sight,

Ego Vulture

What do you see in the mirror of your reflection? 
your own body, or your own detection? 
or the competition of another...the mindless mind occupy your subjective projector
Confusing, deluding...dreams know more order, dreams show more practical structure
The Ego is your master and you the acute apprentice infecting the weak of reality 
using the close resources to master it's design in your mind
It's built your normality and to question is your own insanity 
Feasting upon your wretched blindfold granting your desires \
it gave you your house, that house in which it made you. 
the fatal awareness that mostly last breaths discover
a touching leap too late too seeped with much too weep 
And by then too little to seek what then shall you do once you see the truth?

Could you even muster your own imagination and destroy natures enemy
Or are you the Anti-persona dripped in your own tragedy rippled and shelled
making a hell of a heaven or a heaven of a hell this is the abundant device 
so rarely fought so quiet like mice so if you unveil this master of tricks 
be sure to find your way out of it like shattered glass you may find yourself 
lost without hope grinding deeper into the oblivion vanishing like air in smoke.

Open those closed doors:
Into Heaven we go,
Welcomed and forgiven.
Here is the love;

bright star

got up today feeling a bit lost but happy 
got up with a rush of feelings took me away
looked around , no one was there 
don't worry it is always this way , so , i took my jacket anD closed the door 
had no idea where to go but the wind was trying to tell me something 
something i couldn't hear clearly but it gave me a huge energy
love , passion , visions , and a loT more 
kept walking and walking sometimes running through this world 
wanted to scream and let the people know who i am 
where were all of this ? where was i ? 
i spent my years trying to impress the wrong person , trying to fit when i was born to stand tall
made the wrong decisions , shut my mouth and never had the words 
but oh if you could see me now ! would you recognize me ?
this life is so much fun full of greatness and hope 
i wish you could see that , i wish you could take off the dust 
bring colors to your world and shine up like a bright star 
that took me so long but believe me it is worth
worth the pain worth the fight and worth the stuggeles
goodbye old me , goodbye mask 
time for me to fly , i would be glad if you joined 
come up here , push you can make it 
when you do i will tell you a secret 
i shal tell you .. this is what the wind was telling me 
yeah i can hear it now ....

Perfectly you

You say you aren't perfect,
but look again and behold yourself; perfectly you.
Your tears be heavy-laden with guilt;
also remember, they glisten with remorse.
The sea water of the eye cleanses wounds old
and leads life to the good vulnerability
that teaches humility and belief.

Singing; your voice awakens the dawn
and dancing you set the moon.
Entrancing, you smile
and for a moment I glimpse forever.
Joy's child is your way
and grace is in your name.

Awake in the watches of the night
He watches your panic weeping;
wanting your day to soar 
and set twilight leaping.
Stars twinkle in sympathy,
and meteors lead sight to the other.
Come away with me my love and wink at suns.

Heaven's Doorway

I have vanished into portals of eternal light.lifted by pulchritudinous beams of mighty wisdom.Granted a wind lifted seat,made with yellow light.A cloud lifted palace, crowned by benign angels.With aggressively shimmering chips of gems ,stuck submissively and obedient  to their wings.Angels blowing a charmed horn, summoning the unknown. Before me, a carpet made of water and gold.A all powerful voice says,step forth.Come home.One of the few eternally blessed.Guardian angels with faces of light transported me beyond the invisible gates. I felt free.Free from burden. Free from pain. Free from breathing. Feeling whole and younger than before. I was taken for a tour,through heaven. Many were crowned with light. Many sat  on thrones. The floors was invisible. The atmosphere divine, with a sublime shine. Joyful sounds carried along the air, which I never inhaled. I looked at my chess and it shined with a mixture of hues. I was confused, resting my hand over this luminous light. Through my hand it still shined bright. In this palace there was no night. No fight. No blight. No freight. No malice in this holy. No envy. No greed. No negative bound entity's. All equally shining. Smiles are handed out more than food on earth. We are forever full here. No hunger in heaven.A place were people speak every language.More smiles adding to the ineffable decor. Amidst the almighty master we live forever more. Aloof I visualized my grandmother. She smiled at me. Her dress was maid of honeycomb and butterflies that still lived. She was crowned with lilies,rose peddles and electric. Her feet was  bare. She is sitting in a rocking chair. The last time she seen me, my face was full of tears,as I rubbed my nimble fingers on her pink tomb. She hovers from her rocking chair and said I am glad you could make it here. She says do you see how far prayer could get you. I said yes, I told you I would never forget you. Hugging my family members I never met on earth. Last but not least, I was hugged by my wife. We was bonded with eons of blinding light,enough to blind the humans sight. We are immortals drifting through sacred heavenly portals, reserved for married couples. We was surrounded by a red and pink mist, as she placed on my lips a heavenly and eternal kiss. Baby angels drew close playing the harp with holy tunes. A powerful voice said, love is heaven and heaven is in the two of you...enjoy eternal love....For you are eternally blessed......In heaven we drift.....

Dust


Dust
A dust of lust 
a creation of us 
in whom God resides 
perfection in disguise...

To sin or Sancti 
In  you that is a must
Illuminated shades of doubt 
To paint  the rose of our life 

O! heaven and earth
Let it shivers
As I  write from the deepest of my heart 
Neglected poet in a silence  night	
let heaven mourn as i stole A  sacred wild rose 


if this poem then am dreamin

A promise

Somewhere up above
Beyond the bluest sky
In a heavenly place
We'll have a rendezvous

Someday in that place so far away
You and I will meet again
When my heart will be free
Till then I'll wait for that day

I will tenderly hold you then
I will never let go of your hands
I will hold it tightly in a grip
I will never let you go out of my sight

Somewhere
Someday
I promise I will stay
I'll never go away

Gift Of Mortality

An earthly existence
A universe beyond my minds, comprehension
I die
I rise
Life lessons reviewed
Homeward bound
I am not lost, after all!
I am a willing participant
Serving, the Father, of all creation
His son combined, ‘producing life’ as we know it
Representing them, in everything I do
I am nothing, without Love!
My heart full of faith, loyal service I give
Learning how to unconditionally serve, as the Father unconditionally, loves me
Worshipping our Divine Creator’s existence
Choosing to live, moment to moment
Being as one with ‘Our Universal Father’
No physical permanency
My physicality, disappearing
My mortality existence, I let go of
Death temporary
My spirit alive!
Relief, Peace
‘I am only passing through!’
A unique, experience of mortality 
A gift, I am blessed to experience, to live!

Apotheosis

idealism of youth

mélange of 
dreams and prayers—
disparate yet intertwined—
assembled in their thunderous ranks
to echo past myriad
gleaming colonnades that
buttress evermore eternity

self-betrayal and realization

stolid mind shattered
by coruscant might,
and one's irreverent yearn
in shards was rent asunder,
bereft of merit but who
transformed amid the filth—
banality dismissed

sorrow and reconciliation

grieving stream of years
torn from Chronos’
pavilions tattered—
first estranged but then
with fairness stemmed
life's passing entourage—
muted those who would upbraid

apotheosis

were you there
you might have seen
time begging after destiny,
which turned aside
what once had been—
transcendent he continued then
past worlds without an end

Death, it is a sad way to go

Death, it is a sad way to go,
to leave this earth, dressed in your Sunday best
While faces surround you with tears
breaking the barriers of their emotions
tearing their hearts apart, looking down
upon my stone face, upon the face, lays a simplistic smile
that shows no emotion, no teeth, no life.
Death, it is a sad way to go.

People hurry, say their goodbyes,
but when your alive,
they never come around, they never call, they never even think
of you and how you are feeling.
While you walk the streets, with a smile on your face,
nothing but knives stick sharpe in my back and gossip
burns a hole in my soul and heart;
but I keep on walking and smiling.
I keep rolling on through like a summer hurricane
tears apart a coastal city in the heat of June weather,
Walking till death comes to shake my hand and grin at my soul.

Then as you lay their in your casket
with a buqouet of your favorite flowers, (Roses and Tulips)
they sit around you, the same faces, the same blind eyes
and they all shed tears and says good things.
Too late for that don't you think?
Death, it is a sad way to go, but what relief you get,
when finally departing in peace and leaving the drama
and careless people in your life.
After I am put six feet under, a week of crying passes,
After two weeks I am lost and long forgotten,
nothing but a stone at my cranium to keep me company
and my new friends, who sleep along next to me.
Dead and forgotten, but the dead never forget their fellow lost souls.
Only the living forget such souls that were so good to them,
now they are gone,
I am gone.
How do you feel, now that I am gone?

Death, it is a sad way to go, but what peace you recieve in Paradise.

HER - for my sister Love

~HER~

Hope was crushed

by pregnant dreams

Her... faith forgotten

or so it seemed... 

~HER~

Struggles went unknown

Pain bred unseen

Her... heart beat alone

LOVEs hurt SCREAMS

~HER~

Gates of HEAVEN opened

ESSENCE flowed through

HER frail life now full

everlasting LOVE ensued

 
Lay

~ I wrote this for my sister Love who is a single mother. Her daughters names are Heaven and Essence. ~

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

Eternal Dream

When I begin to meditate
About the life before now
And the life that is due to prevail
Deep in this thought
I heard calls from no where
 Chanting into my ears
A note of warning
“Don’t let the trees surrounding
 This wide fence fall”
Amid this puzzling call
I unearth from a far
Mix voices flaunting a goal
“We will not sheathe our swords
Until all our desires come to pass”
In between these dilemma I inquire
On whose command will lives live?

Dead On My Own, Alive In Him

Faith is not failing me,
I am failing Him.
Why do I refuse to accept His grace?
Why would I rather live my life on my own
When He is extending a helping a hand?
I am depressed,
Dead on my own,
But I am alive in Him!
I give my life to Him for real;
I give Him my all,
And now I'm alive
Because He gives me life!

Arm- Dot- Cor-w

To Lord Ram I sent my soul
Some letter of that after-life to spell
And my soul returned 
Answered, “I, myself am Heaven and hell”

Then I tried Christ as an alternative
That I nurse a sacrificial motive
Soon I got the answer in negative
It’s in heaven is now inactive.


I thought I am short of ram
I am marred by His Arm
Need more memories before harm
To be worthy of his charm.

Then an old man like me came to my door
Walking with a small stick, 
With his hand on back with pain
Thought to be a medicinal doctor.
Keeping the show on, gave him a long oar
Walked away with décor
I thought my ram memories in perfect order.

Africa III

Heart pounding
Nervous feeling
Overwhelming
Deep breath to shake it
Cold chill slivers down fast

Beating against cage of heart
Cage of body
Cage of soul
Legs begging to run
Heart aching to be free
Truth to self 
aching to be seen

Sweet scent of dry savannah plains
Sharp smell of thorny veins
The aroma of Africa surrounds
Scents sights sounds 
In these home is found

Frustration mounts 
Captured leopard
Bound

Snarling at every motion made
Scared but defiant
Blinded by fear and rage

Paws long for endless journeys
On paths walked centuries ago
For elegance in element
A space all her own
Where earth still bleeds red on horizon
Morning and night
Continuing the endless fight

Fight for borderless freedom
Everlasting sight
The pale yellow green eyes
Dismays the truth inside
But tell the story
Of wild soul
Story to unfold

fireflies

in the cool air of the spring time late evening
the night sky was ink black
as the lights went off , 
the  university ground was in great commotion,
shimmering sparkles of phosphorous,
we thought the forest was on fire

Life found in a Dream

Life found in a Dream 
Today I’m a lonely man living in a cold, cold world filled with indifferences and malice. As time marches on a harsh reality come to my mind, time is on no one’s sided, it is only given once and all must die and tomorrow is not guaranteed. This seems so mean because having no one to really love or so it seemed, I was just a lone no one was on my team.
I started to think and reminisce about the think in life that I missed. Tears appeared in my eyes and my heart skips a beat so I lay down and felled into a deep, deep sleep. Suddenly and to my surprise I was on a beach with soft sand underneath feet. The sky was so blue and the air smelled oh so sweet; it dawned on me that this was a place few have ever seen.
I walk down to the water and what did I see; the sea was strange so let me explain; it was made of crystal with a glow all of its own and the waves gave off a musical tone. As my mind adjusted to sounds and the sight I spied out another wonderful delight. There across the sea, a city brighter than the northern lights, oh what a beautiful sight.
I fell down to my knees overwhelmed by the glory that was before me. I thought that I had died and stepped to the other side. I knew what I was seeing before just could not be true, such beauty, it could not exist, not in my world, never like this. A melody that I have never heard before arose from the City across that crystal sea. It had to be played by Angels, the music was so, so sweet; that I felt a joy from my head to my feet and knew deep in my heart that was where I belong,
Just when I decided to dive in and swim to the other side, I heard a soft voice call out my name. I turned around to see who it was that called out my name. There He was this gentle looking Man with sadness in His eyes. He spoke to me and this is what He said; my son, my son you cannot dive in and swim to the other side. So I ask Him why I can’t swim to the other side, that’s easy for me, am going to try.  No, no, no it not for you it not your time was His only reply. I did not understand His reason but I felt His command and suddenly my feet was stuck in the sand, I cried out with hurt and pain in my voice; what lies on the other side, who are you and why can I not go on the other side?
                                     This is the story that He told:
The city that you see beyond the crystal sea it belongs to me and it has streets that are paved in gold. Many mansions lining the roads and in each one there are treasure that are a wonder to behold. There is no hunger, sickness or death, life everlasting and there you can find rest, for all eternity you will be My guest.  Now I will answer your second question, my son, my son; I Am, who I Am! I came to earth a long time ago prepare The Way for all my children to come home. This is some that you should know, for it was written for all a long time ago and I am always with you in your times of needs you are never ever all alone. Last but not the least you ask me why; my son, my son it not your time. 
Seek and you will find, knock and the door will be open, and until you love Me, it will never be. Now go back and remember what you seen and what you have heard, because time grows short. Spread My words that My kingdom draws near, repent, repent and stop causing Me tears.
I suddenly opened my eyes and I was home in my bed and I start to cry. Never have I felt such joy and peace deep within. I went down on my knees and I ask the Lord Jesus to please come in and would you please forgive me of all of my sins, please live inside of me until the end. I sow the seeds and when the harvest comes you will know where it can from. Keep this in mind cause when it is time He will separate wheat from the weeds and set all of His children free.
(Warning, Warning)
The time is now, and do it before it to late! 
Time is on no one side.
Everyone want to go to heaven but no one want to die.
You do not have to worry if you have Jesus inside.
He there for the asking want you try
Do you want Him? He want you, it about free will and you must choose.
The Gift is free, Heaven are hell which will it be?
I hope that I have sowed a seed and it will grow, but it will only grow if you truly believe and have faith deep within your heart and soul.
Time waits for no one!
Faith is something sight unseen will you not set your spirit free? Is it so hard for you to believe that Jesus is the answer and all you need? The door is open want you please come in? Don’t you think it time to find that Kingdom that is way up high filled with riches up in the sky?

I See Humans

I see humans
I see heaven
I meet humans
I draw nigh to hell

Oh cherished humans
Please wane at once
Oh no- more humans
Halt this blood bath

Judgment is near 
Is all I hear?
Though near is far-off
Near a myth to be 

I see humans 
I see heaven
I meet humans
I draw nigh to hell

We need to hate
Yes its human’s nature
Said it’s normal
But how can it be?

Need to understand
Clarity all I seek
Why hate is so strong
Why humans are so weak

I see humans
I see heaven
I meet humans
 I draw nigh to hell

Love is so brief
A beauty we all chase
A clear picture
We scarcely see

We branded the clue
And know well the cure
Still we remain feeble
No act nor attempt or move

I see humans
I see hell
I meet humans 
I know I’m in hell

The Silk Demon

These people make me sick 
These false prophets
These religious money pits 
These well dressed demons of deception 
Nothing but
Con artists
Liars 
Purveyors of pure sacrilege
Pretending to offer you salvation 
Offering you the comfort of the lord 
For a price 
Selling you a seat in heaven 
The more you pay the better your accommodations
Religious travel agents
Without their blessing 
You’re doomed to be left behind 
You wont get into heaven 
Without your donation 

I myself believe in religion 
Support all religions 
They may be different in their views and customs 
But the end goal is all the same 
Eternal peace 

But these people are different 
They to, 
Want peace… 
Your piece 
My piece 
And anyone else’s piece they can get 
Their goal is simple 

Fleece the flock 
Sell them promise 
Sell them an eternal ticket 
Guarantee them eternal bliss 
For a price 

Sell them anointed hankies
And blessed books 
Promise them wonderful lives
With their religious looks 

They are the one-armed bandits of the new age 
With a bible in one hand and a credit card machine in the other 

We take Visa, MasterCard, American Express and Discover  
But no checks please 
We need your “prayer” right now 
Not in 7-10 days 

These people make me sick 
There are so many of them 
Saying they represent God 

Flashing 800 numbers 
Requesting your “prayers” 
Which will only be “answered” 
As long as credit card is valid 

Are people that dumb?
I mean really that naïve?
Do they really believe? 
The cheap suits 
Silk ties 
And piss poor acting of sincerity and caring
Do they not see the obvious? 
Are they truly blind? 
Do they want to be spiritually slaughtered? 

Do they not remember the one very important rule?

You never have to pay to pray!

All God has ever asked of anyone is their faith 
Time, is your most valuable asset
It is what you have the least of in life 

And this is what you pay to God 
Your time devoted to him and your faith in him 

Wake up, before it’s to late 
You don’t have much time left 
Spend it wisely 
Spend it on God 

Eric (and sometimes not)

Plow Fields of the Clouds

In the plow fields of the clouds
where heaven rests its earthly seeds,
where baby souls lie next to old.
There, where wrinkled hands grow smooth
and reach to lift a tiny angel
who will never know pain and only love
and echoes from the hearts below.

Bullets rain tears

Young and innocent they went to school
 Expecting to learn and play
 Never in anyones wildest of dreams
 Did we expect that day
 For a rain of tears to shell them
 From one lost deep to sin
 But heavenly hosts came down for them
 Releasing them from him
 The devil he did have his day
 But God in end dost win
 For noubt will be lost but these young lives
 Will not be gone in vain
 The laws of the land will change in ways
 For it must not happen again
 
Those who reign must stand on this
 Take stance and make a difference
 No one should be able to take a life
 With intent nor mindless innocence
 For even when with madmans mind
 You cannot be left to mingle
 How can you be able to walk in shop
 Purchase guns and not be liable
 Actions speak far louder than words
 And if we let just one slip through
 Without accounting for their sin
 It might well be me or you
 
For on anyone these bullets
 Might be named to fall upon
 So make a difference – make a change
 Add your name – petition
 The whole wide world mourns in shame
 An Amnesty is long past needed
 Write your letters – use your vote
 Act now while it is fresh
 And pray for the souls of all those lost
 That each by the Lord be blessed
 Also for those who’ve lived through this
 That they might find a way
 To find the strength and courage
 To step out further each day

Das Ein Mannlein


Das Ein Männlein

The silent echo reflects through the lodge,
Ein Männlein Steht im Wlade ganz Still und Stum…
Repeating itself in the young boys head.
He is not yet a man, but stands proud enough to be,
Coming back here to relieve himself of his past.
Crying out as he reaches the splintering and tilted door.
The memories of the cold, the blistering cold overpower him.
He spends time collecting himself as the moon moves across the sky.

He had been here with his family-
Says the toppled dining room table.
He also wasn’t the only child in the lodge-
Says the curled up paper dolls in the fireplace.
There was music- Ein Männlein Steht im Wlade ganz Still und Stumm…
Echoes the toppled ivory-keyed piano in the corner.
There was a war, as the Russian Graffiti on the wall complains.
The crashed bomber-plane with the seat full of bones assures that fact.

He came back to the rotting lodge in the forest
Back to the overgrown pile of shambles to find something
As he digs he picks objects out of the rubble, a boar’s head, jewelry, dog-tags,
And finally the thing he seemed to have been searching for.
A baby’s bathtub, with a scrolled handle, stares at him through the dust.
What happened to the other child?
She still has all of her baby teeth in her sweet little baby head.
She’s been sitting in that bathtub ever since that horrible night.
When she was boiled to death by hungry war criminals.

As I look above visions of you there

As I look above visions of you there
A place and time zone beyond the sun
A third heaven where we'll talk and eat
You, myself and I am in paradise
Moments of love and peace we share
Even though it's a like dreamland 
As I look above visions of you there

The figment in my mind of this place,
And I know you're gone from earth, 
In my grief I have visions of you
I'm awake but in a vegetable state
In suffering, memories will never vanish
Not here can we can come to table talk

A surreal life I cannot forget in time
I thought it possible. I wipe away the tear,
As I look above visions of you there

I see this unapproachable light coming
And palace glowing like the sun far off
Two angels holding fire swords at the gate 
guarding the numerous rooms and
protecting the holy angels that sing
This vision I can not fully describe 
Its starlight, beauty, and majesty
As I look above visions of you there
A third heaven where we'll talk and eat

Never Far Away

It feels like there gone forever
Never to return, never to be seen again
But there's a crazy twist to this
They are never far away
You see a picture and 
You kneel and weep
You think they were never 
Yours to keep
But there's a crazy twist to this
They are never far away
They are looking down on you
With God saying "They are mine
and mine to keep"
But there's a crazy twist to this 
They are never far away

DRUNKEN THOUGHTS

I love you Cinderella look at how you work so hard
I wouldn't give you the glass footwear  but I would surly
give you the world and heaven above I can see you
in the clouds,I will spin you on the clouds until rose 
peddles rain off of your pink beauteous immaculate 
dress as I bless you with the best you have been 

taken out of me you are my rib we are one soul mates
breathing in heaven adam and eve for you I wear my 
heart on the sleeve of my soul together we are whole
storys of bliss untold the times you let me unfurl  in you
like love notes burnt in sensual Erotic ecstasy  In your 
castle you lay next to me in dream lands of ecstasy while

your supple skin caresses the sensitive parts of me in
streams of heavenly fluff as you blush I gently defeat your queen
and diamond with a hand of king and  ace as I move fast 
paste  through your moist inner embrace face to face gazing
into bond fires of fire works

Honey you are my  Cinderella......

I want to be in heaven

That feeling that takes your breath away faster than any form of beauty ever discovered, 
That feeling when your life just lifts into a phenomenon like no other, 
That feeling when you glance into this invisible universe, 
Just staring into space no one but you can see, 
That feeling when you’re heart races and you sweat with temptation, 
By the heat of this unexplained situation, 
That feeling when you feel like its heaven, 
You don't want to be anywhere else but by that incredible vibe, 
That feeling when you came into my life and touched my heart with your angelic hands, 
That feeling when you kissed me and sucked my living soul out and spat it into the heavens above, 
That feeling when you were my distraction, 
My invisible universe, 
You were the closest feeling to heaven, 
You are all I crave.
My heart longs for that burning desire,
My heart longs for you,
I want to be in heaven.


*’That feeling when you glance into this invisible universe, 
Just staring into space no one but you can see’
Meaning that no one can see what you are busy day- dreaming.

My Goodbye To A True Love

My Goodbye To A True Love

How could you have left me?
I never had the chance to say goodbye
I never had the chance to tell you how I felt
How much my heart will break without you in my life?
You had so many qualities God wants in a person
A golden heart that shined with love and caring
You had a smile that infected everyone you met
Your spirit shone like a beacon in the midnight sky
I am sure that God had plans for you
Otherwise he would not have taken you so soon
I am sure that you are in Heaven with other angels
Your memory will live in me and everyone who ever met you
Maybe one day God will look at me and decide that you and I were soul mates
He will see that I belong with you and He will take me in His arms
Holding me until you and I can be together again
I will take you in my arms and gently kiss you
And that will be the moment I will know that Heaven truly exists

Am I Still Forgiven

I did it again; I need forgiven.
Will He still forgive me even though I've fallen before?
I've fallen into these same sins countless times before;
I still haven't learned my lesson.
I am an ignorant hypocrite.
Am I still forgiven?

Perspective beyond the Pew

After so many at the World Trade Center died
And after the carnage in the Bronx every night
Coming over this trail of blood like tears
Where that angry disenfranchised foot, booted
Start the course of searing pain down the inner thighs
The fetus left in tumult on the floor, the womb that cries
Cracked dreams in the veins again, visions sooted
After all this, and the time of sorrow banging on the door
An irreverent, debacled stranger I never met before
I could not stand in the fuming ash of day without just anger.

I turned in rage to find the tree
I supposed Frost too in his woods seek interminably
And all I saw was the beast
Skulking near the manger
All I saw was the beast

I fell,
On my knees but not for surcease of mortal pain
I held the wild horse of heaven in prayers bridled rein
I was searching for a woman
The infernal mother who abandoned me
To a serpent's care
I needed a confrontation with Eve
And heaven to absolved me
From what God should have done

My Lord

"My Lord"

I've got sunshine in my LIFE today.
When it's crowed outside I've got the love of Jesus.

I've got so much love the people see me happy.
I have the greatest song the angels are singing from Heaven.

I do not need money, fortune or fame.
Cause I have all the riches one man can claim.

I've got sunshine in my LIFE today
As long as I am with my LORD.

This is why I feel this Happy
As long as I can talk about my LORD.

In the gloaming

In the absence of moonlight          Beyond midnight        Making love      In the gloaming      For an eternity         Hopefully Heaven

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

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.

A Sinner Like Me

I'm a mess.
I've ruined this body You've designed;
I've ruined this heart You've shined;
I've ruined this breath You've shared;
I've ruined this life You've cared.
I've demolished this freedom You've given,
Yet You give it to me again.
Time and time around I have failed You;
Weak and falling trying to please You.
Earning I cannot for this is a gift from You.
Please forgive me;
Please save me:
You've picked me up and brushed me off;
Thank You for redeeming me.
Thank You for redeeming a sinner like me.
I have fallen once again.
I'm a mess,
But You forgive me.
You save me
Time and time around,
Eternally,
You brush me off and pick me up.
Thank You for redeeming me.
Thank You for redeeming a sinner like me.

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!

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

It's more Fun in the Philippines

Treasured land splendor and glory
Pearl of the Orient Seas
Soldiers of known most emotional people
Loving and hospitable in patriot's blood line
The secret of velvet Three Stars and a Sun.

Fortified highest kind of water
Hallowed island of more than
Seven thousand and one hundred seven
Proudly her alone no other can hold.
Through her God given treasures

The Rice Terraces of Banaue
Created more than 3000 years ago
Formed and sculpted with bare hands
My Ifugao ancestors
Giver of my calm sound of survival
Food for my body and soul
The best and will proudly shout my own.

The Tubbataha Reef
One of the largest virgin reef you'd dive
Over diversity of colorful sea creature
You'd see the heaven underwater.
The majestic Underground River,
As a seabirds sanctuary you'd be speechless
A UNESCO world heritage site.
Palawan's gift to its people.

The chocolate hills of glorious Bohol
Conical hills of limestone
Fragments of earth's unexplained laws
Home to the smallest monkey, the Tarsier,

The subtle  Mayon volcano of Albay
Most perfect conic one in the world
Proudly my motherlands finest
Her glory on the face of  beloved earth

Bathe your soul with the heaven by the sea
My best beach, one of the worlds brightest
The Boracay of Panay, best you won't regret
A soul's portrait of the skyline and sea.

Intellect, wisdom, skills and faith
Sun, earth, stars and sky of blue.
Falls, lakes, seas, and trenches
Bestowed by my loving motherland.
Visit and you'll see more  the best
Treasured land of splendour and glory
Of my Three Stars and a Sun.
Proudly my Pearl of the Orient Seas.

Figments

And he sure did not tiptoe in,
To whisper his charm.
Kindling a buzzing din?
Or a rustle fraught with harm?
Unbodied voices of delusion,
Screeching to trick,
One foot on cloud nine,
Shadowed by the Devil’s peek.

Pulling off the mundane apparels,
Draping my pale canvas
In squirts of colorful tubes.
Colors of fantasy?
Dreams?  Illusions?

Cleansing one corner of my restless mind,
Mind? Or do we call it heart?
He has tapped figments,
Figments that had been long purring
And sleeping;
Plugging the voids in my mind,
Let’s call it - the hollows in my heart,
With that which we call,
Life.

Kashmir

Kashmir a heaven on earth
So said those nerds
Gardens full of land mines
Where the fire flower blooms
Crystal clear waters
Full of human debris
Kashmir a heaven on earth
Said one and all
The frozen Dal lake
A view to behold
Full with wood chunks
And leaking petrol
Kashmir a heaven on earth
Said the teachers in school
The clear air
With stench of rotting food
Empty open spaces
Full of decorative tourists
Oh yes definitely a heaven on earth

Heaven

I emerge --
light overwhelms me
with peacefulness

A welcome comes to mind, although
I have heard no words spoken.
How long did I sleep?  
A voice -- a million years.
I seek a presence and the angel appears.
Although the mist reveals
our nakedness, I think no sexuality.
You wonder about your wife.
Yes, the thought emerges as well as the answer.
Recognition will come in time.
When you want to see her, you will --
as well as the rest of your family if you wish.
The stranger said for me to relax and think.
Think about the good times and the times
I knew that she suffered pain, 
to be a complete wife and mother.
She will come to you, 
not through her own accord. 
She will want it with all of her longing, but
she will be here only for your happiness, 
only because you wish it.
Likewise if need be, you will be there for hers. 
Here we all exist in a multiple dimension.
Splitting—multiplying if needs be.
It changes depending on our wants and needs.
However, you will never want anything 
that you cannot have and you will always provide 
what anyone else wants of you, simultaneously.
You can split your dimension into a thousand parts—
a million parts, and even then you will have not begun 
to exhaust the possibilities which exist.  
God is here making all this possible.
God is inside of you for God makes up your being.
In a sense you are God 
but you will never want to be greater, than you are now.
What this means is that no matter how
many wish you to be with them, 
you will be with them all, at the same time.  
No matter how many you wish to be with you, 
they will all be here with you, 
individually or as many as you wish.  
Even while you are elsewhere they will all visit 
with you in the way they remember you,
and in the way you remember them.
All of you will gather all of these memories. 
They will embellish your love for one another.
You will savor them forever, making you complete.

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

Just A Woman

As a woman, I am vain. I saw myself being loved and adored, without thinking that illusion is like a ROSE - it only lives for a short time. You talked to me about your love and made me feel so special. With your words you hypnotized me and made me go into a daze. I imagined myself being in heaven - a heaven so blue with only you. Taking advantage of my daze, you said, let me kneel so I can adore you. Seeing you on your knees - I gave you a kiss. I kissed you with fire, I kissed you with passion. It's not your fault and it's not mine - for love and passion are not a crime. I have to confess, that a kiss of passion - even if it almost drives you insane - it's the greatest pleasure you can feel, when two people feel the same. I'm just a woman - what do you know? If I'm having a dream, it feels so real. So why don't you come and awaken me and make my dream become real...

Heaven's Calling

After all the moisture
has evaporated from your body
and returned as precipitation
After love made in the rain
and quiet storm has been played
When desire loses its yearn
when passion transforms
into a vehicle that takes
us through the years
Commitment replaces
our faith, and our fears
come to terms with living
without one another
When we finally come to rest
and the next dimension is
ushered  in, you'll be 
reigning over me.
An atmospheric process
with heavenly properties.
Rain  on  me
Completely rearrange
and restack me.
Take me apart like Legos.
Scatter me all over the floor
Rebuild me with
 Guinness record
   determination.
Make me your toy
Play with my anticipation
and energize my heat
let me be a part of
your ninety-eight degrees
Drench me completely
Yes, Indeed, overtake me.
Revitalize so this feeling
moves through us like
seismic activity against 
Lego   mansions 
Obliterated and recreated
Your motion has me going places
Next dimension beckons
while being a witness for your body
Reign over me with 
an evangelical quality
Let me be your 
  Heaven's Calling

Sinful

 
Its Forbidden, but so luscious, Its home, sinless and heavenly, Its mother, prohibited, yet tempting, Its blood-red venomous skin so crisp, Its body perfectly rounded and smooth, Its warm, juicy core ever so gushing, Its polished shine blinding our faith, Its earthly aroma sensational, Its nucleus fully fertilized. Seduced by its mysteries, our poisoned young minds Could not hold its hunger for wisdom and knowledge, Marching over its sacred grounds, Snapping them from their nurturer, And crushing mankind’s first promise.

Moment to Reflect

Today I’m a lonely man living in a cold, cold world filled with indifferences and malice. As time marches on a harsh reality come to my mind, time is on no one’s sided, it is only given once and all must die and tomorrow is not guaranteed. This seems so mean because having no one to really love or so it seemed, I was just a lone no one was on my team.
I started to think and reminisce about the think in life that I missed. Tears appeared in my eyes and my heart skips a beat so I lay down and felled into a deep, deep sleep. Suddenly and to my surprise I was on a beach with soft sand underneath feet. The sky was so blue and the air smelled oh so sweet; it dawned on me that this was a place few have ever seen.
I walk down to the water and what did I see; the sea was strange so let me explain; it was made of crystal with a glow all of its own and the waves gave off a musical tone. As my mind adjusted to sounds and the sight I spied out another wonderful delight. There across the sea, a city brighter than the northern lights, oh what a beautiful sight.
I fell down to my knees overwhelmed by the glory that was before me. I thought that I had died and stepped to the other side. I knew what I was seeing before just could not be true, such beauty, it could not exist, not in my world, never like this. A melody that I have never heard before arose from the City across that crystal sea. It had to be played by Angels, the music was so, so sweet; that I felt a joy from my head to my feet and knew deep in my heart that was where I belong,
Just when I decided to dive in and swim to the other side, I heard a soft voice call out my name. I turned around to see who it was that called out my name. There He was this gentle looking Man with sadness in His eyes. He spoke to me and this is what He said; my son, my son you cannot dive in and swim to the other side. So I ask Him why I can’t swim to the other side, that’s easy for me, am going to try.  No, no, no it not for you it not your time was His only reply. I did not understand His reason but I felt His command and suddenly my feet was stuck in the sand, I cried out with hurt and pain in my voice; what lies on the other side, who are you and why can I not go on the other side?
This is the story that He told:
The city that you see beyond the crystal sea it belongs to me and it has streets that are paved in gold. Many mansions lining the roads and in each one there are treasure that are a wonder to behold. There is no hunger, sickness or death, life everlasting and there you can find rest, for all eternity you will be My guest.  Now I will answer your second question, my son, my son; I Am, who I Am! I came to earth a long time ago prepare The Way for all my children to come home. This is some that you should know, for it was written for all a long time ago and I am always with you in your times of needs you are never ever all alone. Last but not the least you ask me why; my son, my son it not your time. 
Seek and you will find, knock and the door will be open, and until you love Me, it will never be. Now go back and remember what you seen and what you have heard, because time grows short. Spread My words that My kingdom draws near, repent, repent and stop causing Me tears.
I suddenly opened my eyes and I was home in my bed and I start to cry. Never have I felt such joy and peace deep within. I went down on my knees and I ask the Lord Jesus to please come in and would you please forgive me of all of my sins, please live inside of me until the end. I sow the seeds and when the harvest comes you will know where it can from. Keep this in mind cause when it is time He will separate wheat from the weeds and set all of His children free.
(Warning, Warning)
The time is now, and do it before it to late! 
Time is on no one side.
Everyone want to go to heaven but no one want to die.
You do not have to worry if you have Jesus inside.
He there for the asking want you try
Do you want Him? He want you, it about free will and you must choose.
The Gift is free, Heaven are hell which will it be?
I hope that I have sowed a seed and it will grow, but it will only grow if you truly believe and have faith deep within your heart and soul.
Time waits for no one!
Faith is something sight unseen will you not set your spirit free? Is it so hard for you to believe that Jesus is the answer and all you need? The door is open want you please come in? Don’t you think it time to find that Kingdom that is way up high filled with riches up in the sky?

A Night sky

Universe goes calm
With the sunset,
That's twilight of
Reddish yellow sky,
All longings
Reaching to rest.

Sky disappears
Into darkness,
Eyes go blind 
Looking into zero,
That's the hue of
A Night sky.

Awaits moon and stars 
To prove its
Very being,
Lustrous bodies
Add glitter to
The Night sky.

A perfect song
That twinkles,
Melodious to heart
With eyes winkles,
Packed beautitude,
A Night sky !

Sliding Down

I’m hoping for my dreams to become a reality
I’m hoping for a phase of gratitude
I’m rejecting my hopeless fate
I’m accepting your side of the story…but don’t intrude 

Unexpectedly, I believe in love in first sight
I grab the rope for extra support
It burns like a vertical line of fire
I’m unable to climb, but I seem too far from my desire 

I’m sliding down the rope, hanging from heaven 
They’re distraught by my absence
They’re cheering for me from down below
I’m sliding down… 

I cherish you like my own belongings
I designed you on my bedroom wall
I have you displayed deep in my heart
Believe me – you’ll never split it apart 

Every day I long for your touch – you changed my life around
My heart is blazing like the zealous sun…I prize my freedom and progress
The world is spinning endlessly as I kneel upon my knees 
And I imagine the memories we share with each other 

I’m sliding down the rope, hanging from heaven 
They’re distraught by my absence
They’re cheering for me from down below
I’m sliding down…

When I reflect upon the joyous times,
My heart never fails
To pound vigorously for you
I’m sliding down 
I’m looking forward to spending the rest of my life with you 

I see the light in your eyes
I don’t see an insidious nature in you…
I wish I hadn't believed in the lies
I never felt like a hopeless victim until I gave in to the darkness 

I’m sliding down the rope, hanging from heaven 
They’re distraught by my absence
They’re cheering for me from down below
I’m sliding down…

I’m glad I've met you in the first place
We’re a perfect match – 
Don’t deny it…you made me feel handsome
We’re on the road of victory
We’re making great progress
We’re hanging on the edge,
But we were rescued 
From sliding down…

At least we’re kept ourselves alive……

Hypocrite

I am a hypocrite and look what I just did:
I fell into my darkest pit; now, again, and again.
I thought that I was strong enough to live the truths I said;
Now I realized I'm much too weak; a fool too ashamed to raise his head.
God, please save me, please forgive me, and please give me strength. 
I love You.
I thank You.
I am forever changed.

Our Divine Haven

This town was the place we used to call our haven 
You don’t remember which road we’ve driven on 
The stars were shining against your cherished soul 
You’re a part of my belongings 
You’re ascending above the ground 
The peace is still like hidden treasure – it’s bound to be found

I believe in you…I put my faith in you
After the miracles you’ve performed 
You don’t agree with what you truly are 
The sky is grieving 
You jump from puddle to puddle
You’re struggling to meet your destiny  
Even if your body is saturated in sweat
You must keep your head above the sea

Follow me and I’ll lead you to divine haven 
Forgive the past that embraces you with remorse and think upon our jubilant future
It’s tempting to just give up and turn around 
I could tell you've been stressing out 
But rest your head on my shoulders and let loose your strain on me  

Each melody is an exquisite sound that bounces into our ears
Commotion and strife will cease and your heart will be free
We’ll flee  together…despite the unwholesome weather 
The voyage has just begun…hold my hand and we’ll rise like the sun
Trust me…we will be strengthened and well-equipped before we take that road of victory  

Follow me and I’ll lead you to divine haven 
Forgive the past that embraces you with remorse and think upon our jubilant future
It’s tempting to just give up and turn around 
You’d rather be drifting away and never be seen again 
I wanna change your mind and erase your frown
Take your mind off of the distressful past
Let loose your strain on me  

Hey! I know you’re stronger than you realize
You’re not a failure – don’t be disheartened  
Don’t worry…you and I will earn our future prize 
This mess will clear up in a moment
Just stay by my side and never depart 
From the light… I promise that we’ll endure till the end
Just stay nearby and our hope won’t tear apart
We are willing to do anything to attain our wishes and delight  
Let’s take action and snatch our glory before our time is up 

Follow me and I’ll lead you to divine haven 
Forgive the past that embraces you with remorse and think upon our jubilant future
It’s tempting to just give up and turn around 
You've been trying to keep a steady pace 
But rest your head on my shoulders and let loose your strain on me

Let loose your stress on me…
Don’t be under pressure
Let me handle your anxiety…
Reach towards our divine haven
Do you need a helping hand? 

I wish you a carefree 
Future

DARK AND MYSTICAL

I sit alone in a grassfield,
Coping up the stressful life.
I watch the big fireball,
gently swallowed by the sea.
Until the clouds fade its glance.
Then in a sudden glimpse,
My whole world turned to grey.
Looking up, I start to see musings.
The fair sky became a wide mystic land.
I see the hands of an artist painting his canvass,
A perfect scene from up above.
I feel like floating in cloud nine.
Witnessing the beauty of a night sky.
The twinkling stars and galaxies.
The moon shading her majesty.
The planets shining from afar.
An evidence of the most powerful hands,
Remind us that we're just dust in the wind.

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.

Heaven (As I See It)

Behind the lines of grace
A mighty river flows
Down the shores of heaven’s street
Pathways paved with gold
A place so many doubt exists 
But I know this to be true
For in a dream one fateful night
The colors showed brightly through

Many questions left unanswered 
Asked each night in prayer
The mind cannot comprehend 
This place beyond compare
One night down on my knees
The question simply asked
To show me a picture of this place called Heaven 
Where there is everlasting life

Nothing what I had pictured 
Could prepare for this place
I saw the souls of loved ones 
Passed on so full of grace
No wings were present on no man
No halos lined with gold
Just happy souls praising God 
No dancing around a throne

People of every likeness 
Sang a welcoming song to those
Entering the pathway to heaven’s gates
Where their soul would hurt no more
But the one face that I did not see
Was the face of the God I served
His presents though was all around
Each person did behold

I awoke that morning at peace with life
For the place that God had shown
Many questions now were answered 
About life and love and home
In the end amazed you will be 
At the place that God’s prepared
Believe it or not Heaven is a place
Look around you’re already there

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.

A Prayer For Healing

Father,
Do not let me be the demon I have created me to be.
I am the product of myself and my negativity.
I trust You.
I love You.
I thank You.
In Your name,
We pray,
Amen.

Smile

Smile is the mountain top,
Where the Spirit strikes Matter

Fibonacci proved:
In the field of creation
Everything must pass through
The Golden Mean.

Dividing the upper portion
Of the head with the lower one
Equals with the Golden Mean:
The mountain top for an angelic smile.

May your smile be always created
Through the Golden Mean, for gravity 
And matter can also produce a smile:
The earthly symbol of lie.

Smile is the mountain top,
Where the Spirit strikes Matter

An Astronaut

I think I was an astronaut
Aimed for the stars.
They fill me up;
They refuel my tank.
They enable me to believe,
Telling me to never give up
As they follow me all of my days.
If only we could see the beauty
That they truly are.
They shout out dreams
That we can reach so far.
Climb into the rocket
And liftoff!
On a journey to discover ourselves,
We are taught so much more,
Learning our goals are only a plan away.
Even thought we must return,
I know that I will be back.
I am an astronaut,
And we always reach for the stars.

Life of a star

Born in a nebulae, a spiders web of gas,
coloured by temperature, weighted by mass.
Nuclear fusion keeps them shining bright 
just like on that first day when God created night.
So they don’t burn us He cast them way up high
to illuminate our world He lit up the sky.
The coldest stars are red, the hottest are blue 
our star is orange to sustain me and you.

A gazillion balls of light, Arcadian fire,
or could they be the angels of Gods holy choir?
Fifteen million degrees keeps them alight
no wonder the poor shepherds fell down in fright, 
their signs in the heavens are celestially awed
witness to life through a child still adored.
Astrologers use them to predict our days
while Astronomers study their galactic ways.

A billion years trip past, the mere blink of an eye,
their cores rapidly depleting our stars start to die.
Expanding shells that twist and morph
snuff out the light as they turn black dwarf,
as a swan song gesture, it’s almost over;
in a brilliant flash they turn supernova,
a nebulous cloud of gas is then formed;
the birthing place where stars are spawned.

freedom

some ****ed in the mouth, put blades
He was not absurd
to give us words.
we have given ourselves
to appear more beautiful
to love otherwise
criminals 
to be perfect
we do not feel alone
+ need to explain
why and how, etc.. 
all are funny
and finally I do not understand 
Where is He in all of this!?

look
Can it and shout:
Oh, my God!
but I must take care
to pray
not be afraid
to forget all the words
me to stay away
because some of they make a love of this things
just for them.

Treasured emotion

a wounded sparrow
on one wing
tears dripping blood
on the canvas
fear
a ghost

twisted out of shape
emotionally 
within feelings
warm ice 
cutting cold

penned from the deepest
inkwell
in darkness lurks
like a vampire
paper soaks up
releasing the ache

burning in the dungeons
absorbing pain
a wounded heart
enveloped by 
one's soul
aching emotion

cries a river
as the sun smiles
from the stories told
i see the light
in the cold stare
blue ice clear

the moon upside down
digging into
the depths of hell
in the mourning
a battle began
emotions
in turmoil

landing on the crossroads
upside down
in this world
light of angels 
appeared
drawing on the sands

marking a cross
in a sun kissed mist
i stand in the middle
direction not found
what a future holds
no bonds
kind to the soul

plans cannot be made
a road has not been chosen
safely i stand
in the sunlight
at the junction
awaiting to walk

enchanting hearts
with dreams
within a gift
to heaven
a golden key
to love 
a treasure

Drifting on a Cloud

Drifting on the clouds I lie
With my head pointing
To yonder skies
In a sea of dreams 
 Where mind and spirit 
Igniting natures prize
To feel like you are heaven bound 
But feet standing firmly
 On hallowed ground
But in the clouds you drift
As the cascade shifts
Your feet no longer touching
The ground

A lift off to a peaceful place
an Ease from  pain
Heading to heaven
On the now train
No heading back
 
Settling in  your own time
Welcoming  rain
An escape
For the things that beset us
Riding our backs
Painting the surfaces
Filling the cracks
No longer weary
Nor hearing sounds
 of hungry cries
Heading to glory
With the echoing of lullabies
Off on a voyage
With an opt out clause
Given by nature
When we stop and pause
Discarding distress,
And inflicted pains, 
Looking for a redress
With  sweet Refrains
 eyes wide opened 
To a beauty and a guile 
Painted by nature
By the clouds on high
So I decided
 to pause for a little while
 
Taking nature in my stride
Story’s written
 in the clouds
artist at play
Mixing the co lours
Painting a picture
Inviting a crowd
Having her say
Without uttering a word
How the lines are drawn
The bold highlights, 
And intricate designs
Nature’s Way 

In shades of grey and pastel blue
With the turquoise borders
Depths of indigo 
How can I not be taken in
Blending with unison
Of a presence and a place
Is it not inspiration?
That brought me here 
My resting place!
That there is peace and harmony
In  yonder skies
 
Wrapped in a woolen shroud,
Floating on high
As on a cloud I now reside
Homeward bound 
While in the depth 
Of an azure sea,
over yonder a tide does wake
Surging to inner shore
A surfers dream
 
Riding its waves
Horizontally, I must glide
To cross over in spirit of the other side
I am at a time and place
Where though imagery 
we can foretaste
Although somewhere different
in time and space 
It must be like being in heaven ,
when nature take its place
At the cent re of the stage
 revealing its beauty
 

So humble yet so almighty
There is complexity in every art
the very corners and intricate parts
Inviting the  eye
Taking time out on a page
Syncing with beauty
 Looking from  the sky
Floating on high
In a woolen casket
 Weightlessly 
Drifting on by
I am in no race
Just run life’s race
Off on another journey
A different time and a different place
 

An escape from the rat race
To find a new place
Full of joy and grace
That I would always be floating
from the skies 
While the north east trades go wonder
Pushing on by 
to open the seven seals
blessing my eyes
See what picture is painted
And the wisdom that it derived
In secrets of the wise
Recovering lost virtues
From failure to realize

Imbalance of the senses one cannot deny
But to approach beauty you have to switch off others 
for another to come alive 
Its not faking reality
But letting spirituality in
To be sublime but not yet ridiculous
But moving to another realm
Enjoying earthly blessings
While wishing changes in

Champagne Heights

There's no heaven above me 
and this world's trying to bring me down
Thinking what goes, will come back round
But there seems to be no heaven above me 
And the worlds getting ugly
I'm searching for comfort 
but your arms, they don't want to hug me
I guess there's no heaven above me 

Sitting still in this storm, Calm, and i can't breathe
Running homeless for days and I miss Autumns leaves
Vacant are my tears But i can't breathe
Rain falls from my eyes But i won't leave

Take me to a place Where i can live
Flowers no longer growbecause man can't give
At the bus stop But i won't turn
My patience's fatigued But i won't learn

I believe in me and i believe in you 
i believe we hold the truth and it will see us through
Crystals no longer shine for champagne is trust
When it's all said and done, again i'll see your dust

There's no heaven above me 
and this world's trying to bring me down
Thinking what goes, will come back round
But there seems to be no heaven above me 
And the worlds getting ugly
I'm searching for comfort 
but your arms won't hug me
I guess there's no heaven above me 


"Sometimes we go through things 
and there seems to be no end in site, 
Smile, because there could be"

Beloved Friend I Have Fallen

An angel, cradles me, in her motherly arms
I have fallen, I am venerable 
I told myself, I would not do this, no more
I have failed to keep my promise, to you
I have not stayed true
Tears flowing, as I smile, just, for you!
Remembering the times, when you cupped my face, in your hands
Your blue eyes, gazing into mine
Telling me with sincerity
‘I am the sunshine, that lights up your world, each day that dawns’
My heart aches, it rains with love, having fond memories of us
Wash me clean, being human, is challenging me!
Emotional bondage, creating blocks
I need to move on, you are dead and buried
Your time here, over
My heart struggling, accepting this reality
“Forgive me”
I pray to be free!
“I Love you, my beloved, friend”

NEXT LIFETIME



I'll meet you
Next lifetime
When everything is
In its perfect place
When all questions
Are answered
In the courts of heaven
When dreams 
Become real
When time lets go 
of empty memories
And forever is filled 
With magical moments to last 
I'll feel you 
When the heartbeat 
is steady and sure
When I have nothing else to write about
But only of us
I'll meet you there
Next lifetime.



(Note : Though unfinished, I'm glad to post this. Wandering mind and sensitive 
heart keep me warmed up to the task. Hope it doesn't take me till next life
to finish this one though...By the way, to anyone, please don't hesitate to 
correct me with proper syntax and better grammar, if needs be.. :-)..thanks!

The Water Bearer

He carries a jar, full of water;
water that no one knows its source!

He pours water as he stands beyond
the stars, as Pisces, the twin fish, continue
to rule over their astrological reign
on Earth.

Just like their predecessor, Aries,
they will end their astrological reign, 
when water from the Water
Bearer’s jar reaches Earth.

Cold Freedom

Look outside the window and see the cold. 
Billions of flakes of snow blast into the air
the hills topped with shining light 
They fly away to another end of the frozen night. 
The sweet taste bites the tongue of the homeless man. 
It frees the chained and abused paved American land. 
No more cars on the street, 
replaced by the wonderful torrential sleet. 

Go outside, hands in the air, and feel the cold. 
Do not expect heaven to answer the call. 
The only answer is the cold night,
that is brought by the beautiful, moving flakes of light. 
The creeping numbness takes all feeling away
then there is no wrong or right anymore.
Smile! Congratulations! You are Free! 

Join me now, lift your earmuffs, let's hear the cold. 
All the soft steps of a billion flakes in the world. 
There are no more machines on the road. 
And no more yells or hustles and bustles
of a million people on the city streets. 
All the shops closed, the end of human greed. 
The slight creaking sound of boots on the ground
but this isn't an another invasion; this is peace.
In the cold, we hear the true sound of light,
removed from the solitude of warm crowded night.   

Smile, remove your scarf, and smell the cold. 
Realize that it is not as you were always told, 
dangerous and dark, a place to find death. 
Ah, the sweet scent of a warm fire.
A family and stranger alike seeking warmth. 
Our nostril's burned by ice, 
the world no longer stinking of vice. 

See the power of the cold? 
Able to unite people unlike any story told. 
Do we need God's device? When we can unite to combat ice? 
War, a dream in this wasteland of our hearts. 
The old is cleansed and reborn in the light filled night.
The time has come to freeze the apocalypse!
Look in the same window do not doubt what you see! 
Yes, it's true, it has entered your heart, we ARE the cold. 
Shining like a million morning stars, reborn a thousand fold!
People inside huddled, ignorant and blind. 
Outside the cold we do not mind. 
“Become what you ARE!”
Look outside and the chains fall!

Light love

Light becomes the shades of auars hues
 Lasting beauty comes shining through
 Flowing in each feathery knot
 Tied to each heart, radiant glow

 Echoes sounded to and fro
 Silvery angels wings span high
 Shining from heaven above, soft light
 Yearning for each soul  gliding so
 Orbs 

Porcelain Summer butterflies, dancing in cellos wind
 Ephemeral passions igniting my souls passion within
 Angels glide to me, Sullivan skies I see
 Glowing brightly 


My soul calling to you my love
 Thus mellowed through the ages , above
 Faded like amethyst wine
 Kisses filled me with summertime

Ross will fill my heart, Plumes in the each morning dew
 Love is forever my darling Gypsy kissed new
 I will be there to hold you 
My angels eyes

Cocooned in metaphoric I shall rise
 I am your angel , borrowed from heaven above
 To hold you forever untouched lullaby love
 My soul mate you are gathered for all to know

Familiars

Ah, here you have come again,
Again you sit in this chair,
How familiar this room so is,
So solitaire in your life, ha, how fair it is,

How you engulf those emotions in bitter fire,
Drown your frown in a realization of emptiness,
How you realize the loneliness and abandonment of your mind,
Your hope and wish to fill the empty, lonely void,

Perhaps one day it shall all change,
But in the now you suffer,
You wonder your discoveries,
How enlightening were they really?

Hanging your head so low,
As if seeming to pray in the eyes of others,
In amidst reality you hide the corners of your saddened mouth,
Your hands caressing the wounded mask,

To lose yourself in words,
You search for comfort,
A faded hand upon your shoulder,
But your shoulders carry only the burdens of others,

To have your shoulders broken,
No others to offer theirs up,
You watch the river wash you away,
As you drown and ascend to your new home up above.

To Heaven for eternity.
	May God lift your voice,

And may He rain down His blessings,
To you in love.
	I wish your voice to be strong,
For all the times we meet,

Treasures of the Spider

Spider!
Beware of 
the night feeder.
Tiny bat wings, swifter,
than the absence
of light, silent, merciless
terror. 

By morning,
I survey the remnants
of your web, rent and empty
 of you, just tiny whispers
of your once, existence.

Your uneaten prey,
all neatly wrapped 
and dangling-
as a reminder
of all 
that we
can't take to heaven

Written for a  Golden Orb spider I 
named Spideress.

The End

The end of our souls, our mercy, our righteousness;
With twelve hundred walkmans
With twelve hundred radios
With twelve hundred televisions
All going out at once- static – static
All being crushed by the hand of humanity,
Communication,
Ill misfortune,
All in tune to the same crashing station
Static.
Like they stated in scriptures, rushing in succession
Tearing down doors teaching a lesson.
Let’s recognize this mess were in,
Jesturing to let the demons in,
Run faster, shut the door before the evil comes in.
But that box has already been opened
With our ill hearts
And wrecked souls,
With our mercy for genocide,
And ‘equality polls.’
Static - Static
I can remember a Paris church on Palm Sunday
Entirely filled with lit candles
One for each prayer we brought
And I wonder why my prayers must be so long
Praying for all of the struggle to be gone
Praying to relieve the pain from our homes
Praying to ease the curse from our souls.
This is not the end of us,
No zombie apocalypse
No meteor swallowing us
Just our faded minds
Coming out to hide.
Static.
Tell me that a lesson isn’t a lesson until it is taught right.
Yes, these happenings are real even when they’re not in site.
Look closer. 
Close your eyes.
Look out at your own life.
For each soul, we are drowning in ankle deep water,
Pretending this earth is perfect
Is just going to hold us under.
Don’t bother to try if you haven’t tried yet
Because there are those of us out here that just don’t forget-
The drinking and driving,
The death of Dak,
The shootings and short comings,
And the *****that we lack.
**** man,
You see this world is cruel
But we can clean up this mess and make it beautiful
Just if we open our eyes
And see that this is
The end of the world.

I.D-deal-an-ology of Irresponsibility

I.D-deal-an-ology of Irresponsibility


Turn creation away from appreciation
And into a miracle
Turn the miracle away from care
For what possible pathetic hands as these
Could ever change anything

Turn life into a repentance for living
The demoralization of heavens acceptance
Gives anyone the easy excuse
Not to do; anything

Tis the last refuge
The last fig leaf of blindness
The very last impromptu surrender
That has nothing at all to do with this

Ideology of Irresponsibility
Places responsibility at someone else’s feet
And heaven augments the captivity
Of dreaming for something better

But; Better the dream in practice

Punishing the wicked
The social classes and poverty created
To think elitist
But deprivation instigated
The cause of so much suffering

Turn the blind eye to perfection then
And wait upon salvation
Turn teaching to the plethora of rigmarole
Do nothing about them
Say then
It is all in God’s hands
And wash clean your own
Rest the conscience in the balm of deliverance

Praise all the little tiny aspects of creation
And never know
What it means to be responsible for them

Walk away in comfort
Be comforted
By an inglorious gratitude
That strips caring to a falsehood
Of simply shrugged shoulders

Cry humanity, weep, wail and bitter turn
Shed the tears in abundance
And do nothing at all
About them

Ideology of Irresponsibility
Places responsibility at someone else’s feet
And heaven augments the captivity
Of dreaming for something better

Though; Better the dream in practice

Rather than the if, but and maybe of promises for tomorrow
and not today

Freedom

The yellow lines just inches away, 
I collapse right before it, deep into insanity.
Not knowing how or when I’ll wake up from the death-inducing coma.
Shackles on my ankles, bounding me to the cement jail of choices.

“Freedom! ” I cry, 
Not knowing I have limited time to be granted that demand.
Realizing I've forgotten the roots of life.

“Freedom! ” I cry once again being tortured by the demons eating at my soul.
Ten minutes left, until death has won me over.

“Freedom! ” Reaching for the only thing in sight, the book given to me years ago.

“Freedom! ” Five minutes until disappearance into the soul dimension.
The crinkled pages sputter dust while being opened.
The old book full of odd adventures, true adventures nevertheless.
Water-stained pages full of life, 
Waiting to be taken of their oxygen.

I flip through it one last time, 
Hoping to save the lost cause that is I.

“Freedom! ” I whisper.
The time is nigh.

The end of its usage is almost through, one last time before its entirety will be thrown down.
From “In the beginning”, down to the giving of Grace, the book’s life is over.
As if it goes with me.

“Freedom! ” I scream out in joy.
Looking above in the bright light, 
Grasping at the yellow line, 
The finish line, 
Where Heaven meets Earth.

Fresh and clean

I love the way she smells after a shower
so fragrant fresh and clean
and how she sits there
so beautiful
in her dressing gown
brushing her long wet hair
until it dry's and gleams.

Her sweet perfume fills the room
and sets my heart on fire
heightening my senses
and filling me with desire.

Our Love Is Enough

We don't need to go out and party,
We don't need to drink,
We don't need to socialize,
We don't need to go shopping,

We don't need to watch sporting events,
We don't need to go out to eat,
Because we found love,
And our love is enough.

As the sun fades away into the horizon, 
For a split second,

With its magnificent glow, 
Blessing the Earth 
Once again with light, 
A blessing from the heavens 
That we tend to take for granted

SKIES FULL OF WONDERS

written 9th June 2013



See the sight of a full moon in the dark of night
 if done just right, it's a magical sight

Watch, as the sun descend's off the edge of the earth
 it's flame's extinguish, as if by the ocean's thirst

Look deep, into the sky at night
 you'll be "surprised by your delight

All of the heavens glory
 will return again, the next morning

So send a wish, upon your favourite star
 you'll never guess that your wish, went so far

So at the end of every busy daylight
 breathe in the gift, of heaven's blissful night 

I guarantee, it'll help you sleep peaceful and right
 well, into his new mornings delight

MOON DIMS



Teardrop
From the sky
Rested achingly upon
The ample bosom
Of grief
Oh Divine, my beloved!
Kneel upon thy alters
Bow down, oh heart
On velvet cushion's grace.
Nigh is death
Lean on Thee
Erratic heart
Tumultuous sea
Calm! Hush now. Calm!
Thy belly crawls
 before thy feet's sorrow
Given paradise 
A tomorrow's dream
Thy brows sweat
And the moon dims
Take my soul
To eternal's promise
Bosom's tears 
water the heavens
Heart and the sea
Pleading for the nightmare's end.

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.

Space: The Starry Heaven

We live in a lonely universe. Observe earth from space and it is simply a vibrant celestial body, in miles and miles of emptiness. This poem emphasizes on the power of our imagination, in breathing life into this very nothingness.

Nebula's and galaxy's a plenty,
all perfectly align,
with such rhythmic precision,
and bow to the starry heaven.

they are perfectly radiant dreams,
of such gargantuan proportions,
of such admirable dispositions,
they gleam, they shine, they meet.

Such desirous temperaments,
never even try to swim,
in an ocean of a hundred universes,
but from where I stand, they do.

a million vantage points,
on a thousand scattered planets,
if such is the case than why,
am I not omnipresent?

Perhaps I am, from where I stand,
under this starless heaven,
eternal, horizon-less,
this lovely imagination.

Thank You Laura

Been just over a year since my trip of dreams
Travelling across our country, seeing every beauty of the land
Swooping through mountains of snow and looking down upon valleys below
Lost yet overwhelmed with excitement, not knowing where I would go

In Victoria is where I met you
Cooped up in a little hostel where you and Katie could barely fit through the door
As you carried a house in your bag ready for a camping adventure
Only to spend time together for a few days but ones that mean more than words could say

As I opened up with stories to show my life in scattered pieces
Your generous and honest heart worked to help sew me back up
You believed in everything I could be when I did not know how
You pushed me to fight and strive for more because you saw that inside of me

The strength I saw our friendship grow in only a matter of hours is something so special
It gives me meaning and purpose every day I feel down because I know kindness exists
People may hide to show it when they feel victim but there’s goodness in all of us
You took every moment you had to breathe that compassion, and I will never forget you

You were an amazing lady
And I’ll miss you
Thank you so much Laura.

Our first kiss

Striking lightening 
these hands were shaking 
trembling underneath you're touch electrifying 
so eager to please you my love 
this love forever pines away 
each drifting view inside 
a desert oasis with you 

An angel's voice sweetly sings 
out chants magic every word 
so sweet my unforgettable dream 

Inside this you are darling 
shining brightest of all stars 
liquid silver shivering 
inside the moon begins to weep 
sweet starlight crystals winking droplets fall 
love you are each and every one 

A beautiful memory lasts forever 
touching so deeply reality 
dreaming soft treasure always 
waving lips of desire 
that I will never forget 
as long as I should ever live, 
the very first kiss 
joining lips breathtaking

In the future looking back,
You'll be happy to see
How far you've come
And where you are today,
So make the most of this now.

Why do you curse me

If killing is a problem solving key.
Believe me I shall also try to flee.
We killed thousands in 9/11,
We killed thousands in Iraqi sandy cabin.
We are killing thousands in Afghan War,
We trained to kill/die in Pakistan’s shore.
Do we try to learn a lesson?
God will keep us in heaven a religious fashion.
Arab will die to live on Earth,
What was truth before Lord Mohammed’s birth?
Lord Jesus Christ was born Christian,
What’s wrong in Jews living fun?
Mohammed and Jesus they played on soil,
They roasted their jobs to sweat boil.
They never sit idle and demand food free from God,
They never used to win human a religious rod,
They were polite and shared their views,
They never threw on wrong their shoes.
Conversation was their only tool to use,
Let me know whom they have abuse.
Forgiveness and mercy, they produced a shield,
They grazed their sheep on the earth field.
Do they ask God they shall give a shelter in Heaven?
They will punish that hit by a Robin.
What’s in Quran or a Bible?
Go to Heaven and kill a human tribal.
I learnt a message,’ how to live on Earth’.
That’s why Nature has our human birth.
A religious philosophy is superb,
If it cut my poverty curb.
I work and work to pay off the bills,
And always crying what are politics hells?
Wrongs and wrongs never learn a lesson,
To kill innocents for their outrageous fashion.
To compromise to strengthen crime,
To corrupt nature to share a winning ham. 
If hell or heaven is also a living space,
Then why we have a new Mars race.
If heaven has a better living home,
Then why have a human dilemma of innocence trauma.
Something is wrong in human brain,
Lives in tense and talking about strain.

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.

Written for Nicole Els in 2008

Sky-scraper

We all hold our worlds in a whisper
For we don’t know what forms they’ll take:
A single snow-globe, that’s cast in storm
‘Could’ scrape the skies with ache,
An’ the twisted, fabrics of a heaven -longed
‘Could’ billow an’ spill forth to unfold
(Across the very, wax wounded mantle
That once kept that heaven cold)
Entombed, our hearts -in a whisper
COULD scream through demons at will
But still, we hold -our worlds in whisper
An’ still, our mouths are still

For we all hold our worlds in a whisper
And we don’t know what forms they’ll take
But until its spoken, an' not through a whisper
For our worlds -we will be too late

Documentation

I haven't written anything down because I have been too busy feeling it.

The love you planted so softly on me like a nice pair of lips.
 
I stopped writing because I didn't want to miss a second of the  main event.

The event of love is a special occasion that shouldn't be missed.

I bought my ticket and sat in the front row of your heart. 

I can't believe through the highs and the lows of our love there is still a 
flame to light up.

I could travel the globe but no one could ever encompass
 
the south, north, east or west of your spirit.

The jumping, stomping, dark haired goddess with the face of Pocahontas.

You are truly what my heart was missing. 

I have not documented all of the ways you make me smile.

when your body is planted on mines how even
our sweat combines and makes the perfect perfume. 

I haven't written in a long time simply because I have been 
consumed with loving you.

The Meaning of Love

Many have pondered the meaning of love 
and here is the answer from heaven above. 
Love is kind generous and unspoiled.
Love is faithful but not of this world. 
Love is patient forgiving and true.
Love will chase away all of your blues.
Love is honest and never misleads.
Love is happy and worry free.
Love is all in this world that is good. 
Love is never misunderstood. 
Love is caring and knowing no wrong. 
Love is expressed in beautiful songs.
Love will support you and set you free. 
Love is freely given and forever will be. 
Love it protects and is never late.
Love destroys and devours hate.
Love most of all is from heaven above.
Love is God and God is love.

Rain

I see the rain,
Dancing across the sidewalk,
Carefully placing each drop
One at a time,
They flow with each other,
Gracefully and in sync,
As a dance from the heavens
Praising the One who made them,
And as I watch them,
I become hypnotized,
Almost entranced,
By their beauty

The Ever-Loving Butterfly's Kiss

I brought her a dozen of sugar sweet cherries
From the perennial field; a gift for a kiss to begin with;
And I know I’ll joy the redness from those plump lips
As they smile teasingly as I stand with hands in front of me.
Sunlight sparkles inside bright teeth, while cherries like bubbles
With fun and so sexy bring no response to my acclimated wait;
But love shines all around amid candor-filled butterflies
Start flying all inside me and the light in her eyes always sparkling in hope.

I am struggling like a silly boy. Shall I ask her for a dozen of kiss?
Or Shall I ask her just for one to live a minute more? Scampering busily
I go, merrily spinning about my head and heart at once
As I am dancing staggering dizzily with tinny breath;
My arms outstretched with mouth opens so I might feel
The glittering world vanishes under my feet  in front of this first kiss.

Mercy

Cut the trees 
and cut your veins
for your extinction is entwined

These creatures that have been robbed of home
are on this conscience of mine.
Can my existence
be above their creation,
is extinction my legacy?

Will god forgive my sins?
or am I the parasite from above.
Death and destruction are part of me,
can heaven really want the likes of me?

My number will pillage the earth
and only god can stop me.
But in this testimony
the shadows of past will condemn
and the time draws near,
when I too will become a memory.

This life that shared the will of man
will thank god for my demise
for I will repent, 
though the universe is blind.
 I am insignificant
a temporary molecule in time.

I humbly accept this judgement 
of a higher being, for we cannot trust ourselves.
 My nature is to destroy the things of life,
this is the sum of mankind
for greed is programmed into me.

Will the dodo forgive from above?
was its flesh worth the feast?
Every day the beauty of creation disappears,
will these creatures that are now silent
ever forgive.

Can arrogance belong to the dawn of man?
Does this final supper belong to me?
The earth devoid of life, 
my power is that of progress
and reward is a desert without life, my kingdom.

Can this universe stop the devil in Man?
For I am mankind, heaven is my arrogance
and I am the king of life
Ruler of all this silence 

And now it is too late
for silence has found me.

Micro Managed Death

Techno-scramble
the ramble of cars on sheet metal
Tall walking for sledge hammer rhythm

The dialysis of t.v. dramas
and hospital soup delivered on time
A team of managers examine

Mortuary
Dead before what could have been
Electromagnetic heart transfer failed

Before the soul left the bed
Whirring of gadgets promised
Earthly pulses and show tunes
As lungs gave out

A Chat With God

God you Love us right?

Right,

Well why so much pain,
I'm sprinting through the fire,
but I can still feel the flame

My child,
I love you,
I know this world can be evil,
deceitful,
yet you all are still my people,

if you want us to live,
why do you allow death,
my cousin was only one,
he went blind and deaf,

Once again my child,
I have the perfect plan,
some things that I do,
man will never understand,
Sometimes the human mind can be very conceited,
angels don't die they ascend to me when needed,

Well if you love us so much,
why is this world in such a swirl,
why did hi jackers hit the tallest structure in the world?
Why did Hitler kill so many of your people,
I can't see you,
but oh Lord we need you

My son,
This world requires patience, 
The basics, 
sometimes you need mediation,
my revelation comes to life in Revelations,
My child,
Lucifer is real,
he comes to kill,
steal,
when hurting he will come as a pill,
if you need money bad,
he will be a drug deal,
he comes as temptation,
he loves contemplation,
But just believe in me and soon you shall see
Elevation..

For Chris

As all things pass, you must
   Beyond, no earthly future lies
No limits be secured

Chosen by the hand of God
   You pass before our eyes

With arms outstretched, we reach
   To hold you back

In looking back we see ahead
   An emptiness surrounds

How fragile now we feel
   The clutch of sorrow's bounds

With time strength will return
   And clearly then we'll see

The message of this mournful day

For we, too, shall pass dear Son
   And with you, then, we'll be

Castles in the Sand

So many men,
building castles in the sand.
Surmounting the sky...
with the belief,
that they will never die.
A mortal man,
Can not build,
a fortress around his soul.
The tide will wash away,
All that you build...
Even on your longest day.
So,
Why does the pride of man,
Strive to break the soil of the land..
To build,
an empire that will surely rot?
I'd much rather have,
A shack on a rock,
than a castle in the sand.
I'd rather enjoy my life...
with the little I have,
knowing I lived all that I could.
Than end up battling the tides,
on my last day...
Only to lose a futile fight...
Losing my love to an ocean of night.
So,
Give me twigs and and rope..
I'll build a house of hope.
Give me leaves and hay,
I'll build a roof over our heads today.
A house of loving faith,
A house on a rock..
For he is my foundation...
My Lord, My salvation..

This Day Only

This Day Only 12-16-13
Countless waves are calling me towards the Western Sky,
Where the sunsets every day,without a doubt,the stars come out,
The moon glows somewhere behind me,where I feel you are too,watching,
The distance between us is an open door,even though you are close,
I watch the world stop as you slowly pass by.
Tears fall like a hard rain,as I can't reach you to say goodbye,
I will never forget ,this day only,as I reach for you in my memory,
I clearly see, you are now part of history,Rest in Peace my Dear Friend,
You are free now,free as the wind blowing.

 Unrealizable equations of angels quest
 Monarchs of each canyon in the soul
 
Thrilling plight enduring symbols offerings
 Exploring as the master of the sky
 Presence of a testament of inspirations
 Apparitions often shall reappear, Brighter blessings

 Mortals truths brings each heavens realm
 A parallels of time reflects the veil

A Winter Walk

Winter star,

   so frozen where you are;

   in some glazed galaxy,

   how far is your lofty eminence?

Shine you will,

   in your celestial world,

   perhaps your rays more ancient

   than Earth's first darkling crib;

Where once none had been.....

No earthly eye to behold thy majesty;

   shearing darkness 'til what final wall?

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.

Alis Vulnerata

These are neither wings nor mere ornaments,
But burden, a curse-wings not of heaven but of suffering.
When the bell tolls I sat by a cloud,
Watching you as the wind blow your onyx hair,
 Oh! A sprite! A flower for the eye!
But all I can do is stare and dream,
To believe that angels do fall,
Down to the moist earth from the heavenly hall.
Wings and glory I would give up,
Just to be with the one I really love.
 Even the gates of heaven couldn’t hold me,
Nor could they bind me in chains in the clouds.
Even platinum ropes would surely break,
As I struggle to break free and do whatever it takes.
I cried in agony as I pull out my wings,
‘Cause I know somewhere in the future we will be singing;
Of songs of intercession and togetherness,
Music of love and romantic happiness
These all I would do for you:
Give up immortality just to be with you
Burn my wings just to walk beside you,
Fall down from heaven wishing this dream would come true.

IN THE GARDEN

Unclothed in the morning mist… 
In a garden paradise 
Man and woman walked naked - hand in hand 
Beautifully unbraided in the dawn of the aurora 
Created by the Master… 
The One and only One 
 
Their images opulent- in the clear silence of radiance 
Surrounded by beauty in His palatial gardens 
They stood in naked luster 
Born without blemish or stain 
Until the devil slid along beside them 
Burning their eyes with sin... 
And their bodes connected by rib and clay 
 
Satan silently roared his evil deceit… 
In his shameful hated ways staining forever... 
The color of life 
And the pale ghosts of the future... 
Which would be lost to his guileful diabolical ways 
 
But hope rings eternal… 
For God did not send us out among strangers
He provided us His ways 
To outsmart that imposturous angel
 And for us to blossom… 
In the dust of Adam and Eve’s lust

I Am no longer alone with myself, i am no longer laden
I Am a fulfilled soul, engulfed in bliss
I Am found, no longer wandering

Reflections in the Water


Reflections in the Water

Barely perceptible beginning 
A soft wet caress on ones face 

Gentle pitter-patter gaining strength 
Puddles forming erupting with exploding raindrops

Life’s poetry played there out by drops
The sweet summer squall disappears as quickly as it came  

With largesse its finish on the pools now given a fond adieu
Rain lost suns power now bring them to a perfect reflection  

Mirror now of the lovely bright light and flowers and of trees
Peace under heaven 
Peace under heaven again

Reflets dans I’eau

forbidden love

in heaven I'm an angel in waiting,
on earth I'm beginning to live,
but wait seems my journey is ending,
why do you want to get rid of me?

I'm too small to have my say,
if I could I'd carry on my way,
seems my life is in your hands,
all I want is for you to give me a chance.

no heart feelings, no angry thoughts,
although it hurts, my life you stopped.
in waiting I'll stay until we meet one day,
in heaven not on earth, our forbidden love we will share.

silent and numb

black and white butterfly's
pasted to the cold glass windowpane
against the grainy image of clouds
but to the butterfly's they are forever sailing the windless world
forever following eachother in such
sweet refrain silent and numb

black and white butterfly's
pasted to the glass wilderness
the urge to give their lives color
the desire to be more than born to be
to see the better world
greener pastures
to be the apple of some young girls eye
to be the happier dream

brief moment
when head above water
the thoughts are clearer
the feelings less fractured
swimming the last mile filled
with sunshine breathing
feels so free
after the nail to the head laughter box
creature image hollow pool
where we have run out of water
while i'm still trying to swim upstream
beat the butterfly's home
while i'm still
silent and numb

My Own Heaven On Earth

My Own Heaven On Earth
By Cody Brandon Turner


O do touch my face
With that soft and gentle touch
I feel the love I give
Never seems to be enough
The Love you deserve
Only god can provide
For my love for you is strong
Like a Sailors knot that is tied
Sunflower eyes and desiring lips
Your love is deep within me
In my heart is where it sits
You are heaven on my earth
Love in my pocket
If something should try to take this
Then I shall fight and stop it
Fight with my heart
And love with my soul
Right down to the very second
Till I’m useless and old
Your love is something I lone for
It’s something I must possess
This feeling I’ll hold in my hand
Then strongly form a firm fist
In my hand I will hold it
And hold it over my heart
This feeling will never leave me
Even when heaven forces us apart

No Throne for Me

(2/11/2014)

My heart hurts 
Aches inside me like the muscle that it is
And I am cracking the bell that forgot to…
I rang it a million times   
Rang for you and for you and for you
Rang so loudly that my feet hurt and my body ached.

Forget me. I will sit in my shell absorb my nutrients 
through osomosis, photosynthesis, and have no need 
for you.  No need for any of the words you say or don’t say
From your place in the clouds of catholic school books,
Blue sky and billowing white clouds 
Radiating pinks and yellows from the sun.
Beads with you in your clouds,
Golden halos and bare feet.
The three of you in your blessed trinity
Three holy thrones with no seat for me.

A Glimpse of Heaven

I look to the graves
Death is all around me
The second we’re born
We move closer to death
When the sun sets
This moon is awakened 
Yet we live our lives 
Focused on ourselves
We work to pay the bills 
While greed slithers in
Starting with the best intentions
Ending with no confessions 
Too tired for joy
Too busy for love
Always searching for another step
Ignoring the ones in need
What if we lived life
Thinking of the end
Would we think of the precious times
Would we slow down our lives
Smile at the homeless man
Hold out a helping hand
Because death is certain
If you like it or not
As you lay down to die
Will you think of work
Another bill to pay
Or will you think of God
And Jesus giving you His life
I pray that we all will see
A glimpse of Heaven
So we never have to
Go through Hell

YOUR, DEW DROPS

Shall the truth sprout from my tongue!
That had lied too many,
But I ain't lying to you, my love
For your death, my tears, will compete with the rains,
That fills the oceans, to its full, to its brim,
And the flowers that filled your odor,
Shall not be blown with any of those of the heavens,
I am, with you, in the world of the dead,
Wandering heavily, in search of the odor,
That lighted my nose, my eyes, my heart,
In the world, where the alive, we were.

Oh my flower, shall you sprout again,
I shall never be the winds that make your petals shake,
I shall never be the bee that bite you and steal your nectar,
I shall never be the thorn that hurt you and makes you bleed…,
Oh my love, I will be your dew drops,
That touches your mind to your body,
Drop by drop, make you alive; fill your heart with a gentle chill,
Kiss you, a thousand kiss, make you smoother,
Fill your nectar with the honey, that no bee ever tasted,
Then I will dance with you, and make love to you,
To your entire petals, till I fall and take my last breath.
 
I wasn't a traitor, my love,
I wasn't a liar, my love,
But I cared for you as the light, the sunlight,
That watched you from a distance, from a very long distance
From the spaces, as the sun, as its light,
But couldn't touch, couldn't lay my hands on you,
On your heart, on your mind and couldn't know your pain,
Those made your petals shrink, tired, and fell one by one
Till you fell off in the search of moister, for air,
And took your last breath in front of me and died.

Happy Valentine Day

Happy Valentine Day 

In advance 


Oh, my dear love! Don’t worry about our life!
We may see thousands of replicas of King Claudius, 
In each street of the world, want to us to fight their adversaries,   
That they become emperors of the Hell,  
With their thirst for blood and lust for power, 
And with sacrifice of our love, and with tears of our hearts,
But we have billions of Valentines in our hearts with the blessings 
Of Heaven to build a world of peace with harmony of our thoughts, 
So, let’s travel back to February 14, 269 A.D.
To unravel us from the camouflage and gather the smiles of our arts, 
And to fill our souls with the fragrance of spirit of dove, 
To love in the outdoors of the world and not in the secrecy any more,  
To hug and walk down the aisle into the fantasy of our ecstasy! 
Oh, my dear love, don’t worry about our life,

WHERE HEAVEN MEETS HELL


I WALK ALONG THE EDGE 
WHERE THE LAND MEETS THE SEA 
WHERE THE SEA MEETS THE SKY
WHERE HEAVEN MEETS EARTH
WHERE HEAVEN MEETS HELL

THE SEA AIR PUTS A COAT OVER NY SKIN
AND FILLS MY MOUTH AND LUNGS WITH ITS SALTY SWEETNESS
THE  SOUNDS OF THE SURROUND FILL MY HEAD
WITH THE STILLNESS AND TURMOIL OF PAST LIVES
AS MY EYES LOOK OUT AND SEE THE PAST AND PRESENT AS ONE 

AND I BECOME ONE WITH THE SEA
FOR BETTER OR FOR WORSE
I AM WHOLLY FREE

My own little garden

My dearest little garden
that grows my plants
The finest yard of numerous
that holds my beauty
My wholeness that grants my draft.
My obese garden that stays and stands
Even though you know I am a Yokel.
I owe you much
My till, till and till.
My own mine, I whole you all
Cos you have stood by me
In no place and less vacuum.

beautiful birds 12

take my hands
and I'm still here
and I go into your chest
after all you have left.

and I do it just as light banishes darkness
with incomprehensible drained for fear

Marking Time

Whisper in my ear
the beauty of your
soul,
Long been longing to
hear your musical
thoughts.

The tone of your
body bewitched me
completely,
The flow of your
energy driving me
crazy.

Come to me at any
time of the day,
Crossing million
miles,
only to feel the
pleasure again.

Unlock the door with
the key of flame,
And rest assured,
It will be worth the
pain.

I feel the sensation
in these eyes,
Makes me yearn,
But sometimes
fright.

Carry yourself here
on the feather
light,
Or call me there in
white tonight.

searching heaven

through the eye 
of an needle 
in sandstorms 
of life 
I glimpse 
you in heaven 

rich in loves thread 
I begin to 
weave love 
spun silver 
in the deepest depths 
I found you 

the light 
becomes your stage 
my crusade
 to love 
surrounded in 
lights armor 
my crystalised heart 

in the flicker 
of a thousand candles 
each flicker 
my soul flies 
a kaelidescope 
of lights colour 
fluttering
my souls eye

my diamond treasure 
touching  
a night's sky 
as the moon 
it smiles

 upon you stars
like diamonds 
they surround you 
confetti 
in the air 

one star
twinkles in the eye 
a shooting 
across the night sky 
wishing upon 
you sprinkle heaven 
as the sun smiles 

radiant warmth 
upon my pillow 
an oasis of love 
my beautiful mirage 
only in dreams 
I found you

Korean Commas

What am I to say to you dear sweet Jim
You have chased me away and now I am gone
But what about you broken by your promises
To me it's a sad old song, you've been gone for way to long
I doubt you knew, fondly whispered memories- same old song
For me there is and will be nothing left to do
You could never now complete the man I knew
The words were clear I was left in the shadows now with out you
Same old memories same old you I cried untill heavens turned blue
I am not ready for challenge I will not play the game
I am still hurt from the memories, hiding from the pain
Embarrassed becasue I am left standing here this way
Alone because of a man whose arms I have held so long
Caught burying worries and facing all the blame
But what about you, forgive yourself and start again 
You'll be the same old guy to all of them

Needs

I want your embrace to be everlasting 
I never want to forget how your eyes
glimmer softly when you smile
I want your cologne to linger on me
so It's known that I'm yours 
I want to hold your hand so tight 
our fingerprints fuse into one 
I never want to forget the feeling that 
overwhelms me when you call me beautiful 
I want to fall asleep with my head on your chest 
every night in hopes that eventually our heartbeats 
would match.

Untraveled Wilderness

I wonder what’s on that untraveled path
It looks detached from the human race
That mud-spattered trail has no footsteps
I wonder if it was ever taken by anyone
A shepherd and his sheep, a mule skinner perhaps
The shrubbery on this way are yearning for human touch
I stand at a distance to see where it takes
I stand to see this barren region and one dying lake
It leads to the mountain of fairies, people say
Then why we don’t ever go this way
It is cursed and so are the mountains, they say
I wonder what is more blessed and motherly than the mountains
I wonder who will first traverse this trail, and take away its pain
I wonder who will first leave a trace of footsteps on this secluded course
I've seen countless paths forsaken; countless forlorn roads

Awaiting God

You have given me my name, and you’re the only one to love me.
 You are my father, better than life and, stronger then iron
 You called me your son and spoke to me your word.
 It is so beautiful; I couldn't, but memorize and write it down. 
Publish it and call it holy.
Yes sir, it’s the bible. Guidance to our reconnection to perfection,
But none can be perfected.
 Imperfectly advertising an answer that's not yet answered,
 But consumed. 
Faith is you, and we praise for answers
 Hidden replies are your solution. So we wait for the night,
Where you take us all away. 
That is why, therefore "in God we wait, and trust".

Alway there

Quickly falling waves crashing against rocks rain falling heavily. Listen. sunlight dim hidden. dark clouds continue to leak. Loud thunder rolls. Lightning in the background. Heart pounding racing clothes soaked dripping. water splashes, still falling. Voice quite. He reaches down and grabs me, he says have faith for I've been here all along. And I love u.

This Tiny LIFE

This tiny LIFE

It is only a tiny LIFE,
A LIFE of God's design;
I cannot unfold this LIFE
With my own ways.
The secret of unfolding LIFE
Is not known to a person as I.
GOD opens this LIFE so wonderfully,
But in my hands it fades and dies.
If I cannot see in my LIFE,
The love that God has for me
Then how can I think I have wisdom
To unfold this life of mine?
So I'll trust in Him for God guides me
Each moment of every day.
I will look to him for where to go
Each step of my pilgrims way.
The path that lies before me,
Only my Heavenly Father knows.
I'll trust Him to unfold each moment,
Just as He unfolds the flowers

The Sweet Home

Home, sweet home, is a heaven on earth
The abode of undemanding love and care
Where delight and tranquility reign utmost
Where one shares the joys and sorrows; all
Where the ambience remains beautified ever
Where food and water are partaken together
Where love, sweetness and charm abounds
Where from going out and returning to is
A pleasurable experience, that’s unforgettable 
Where each one is glued mutually, with that
One common and an affectionate bond.

A Silent Chaos

This night's so silent,
But why there's still so chaos,
These stars are so divine,
But my heart's not that pure,..
With the passing night,
came the midnight,
Still my eyes wide open,
Searching something in the black 
sky,
The life's wisdom happen..
The cool breeze touches my soul,
The moonlight brightens my heart,
But still there's hollowness 
somwhere,
May be its a path that I am 
searching for...
Lost sumwhere kind'a crowd,
May be its myself that am searching 
for.....!!!!

SOUL MATE

If you have a soul mate
Here on earth, but
You never get to meet them,
When you die and
Hopefully go to
Heaven, will you get
To eventually greet them?

Angel

Boy, your my heaven sent angel.
Your my best friend, 
always protecting me, 
and looking out for me.
Your my boyfriend, 
always there for me, 
never judgemental of me.
You have this beauty about you,
that no other boy has ever had to me, 
such an angelic glow.
Your smile so sweet, 
your lips so kissable, 
your eyes as bright as the sky,
on a perfect cloudless day, 
and your touch so gentle, 
delicate, and soft.
You treat me as if I'm royalty, 
like a princess.
You never hold my choices 
and mistakes against me.
You put aside all my faults and imperfection's, 
i'm perfect in your eyes,
No one has ever treated me like im a princess, 
No one has never held my mistakes 
and choices against me,
And no one has ever put aside my faults 
and imperfections like you have.
Boy, your my heaven sent angel.

WHAT? WHAT? WHAT?

I thought life was only 
bad and good moments 
that kept changing seats
I thought heaven was a metaphore 
and that happiness was made of 
some exceptional moments 
I thought we should fight for 
a better work, money, food, clothes 
and that silence could be respectful 
But bad moments are not bad 
when we decide for the good ones 
and heaven is to love and to be loved in return 
Happiness is how we feel 
when we are complete 
even when we are sad. 
We must fight for nothing but peace 
and silence is never, never, respectful 
Each word we don't say 
is a missed opportunity.

With Hands that Weep

It was a liquid wall – a wave so exceptionally massive
Foreboding and catching unawares, tossing into passive
Submission of bodily functions violently shaken
White noise crashing through sandy pores
Tearing fingers along broken bottles to
Billions of bubbles bursting between salty motes
Sucking hideous gulps of brine in lung full rotes

Where serenity hides amongst coral flutes
To seek you out and shove you deep
As a soul is crossed and taken by reap
With hands that weep
Across a soundless plain
Devoid of pleasure, yet not of pain

A journey through light, a glittering void
Filled with those seeking past and present
Where worlds collide to anoint a soul
Before the hands of time; and
Commit to dust, a body belonging
To the ordinary world

Where loved ones drip upon a wasted shore
To hunch and punch
A chest that’s cold to disbelief at
Eyes that speak through windowless souls
Of a place that’s reached beyond
The hands that scream and weep

Over a body that belonged to the ordinary world

Maze

Stranger ; the slight neglect 
of conversation has passed 
	as Tempest. 
& the Desert is silent , and pure 
For nothing thou will find but bones and dust.
	Nor will a Lover be 
	by Reason then, d'ye think 
fading as a lamp when all the
	Oil is Spent.
While my Heart prays to send me 
out of this Time bound in thy eyes 
unclosed. Turning to a little 
cold & worthless clay or 
a Bright Stone, by this faith 
I choose , to live and die. Blessed
	by the moonshine green sour 
ringlets making silence unless he has
	found the Power to Prove mortal 
ill prevails ; & there I shall 
sit and surely All will be mine 
	as the dead captains 
in their graves.
	Their Vows their banks 
thier infinite kisses found in 
	foaming pewter.

Thus to bewitch me 
	out of wasting snow & out 
of thought ' s inferior sphere.
	
	Shine ! Shine ! Shine !
w-/ one I had not hoped to read
as a drunken rose nor in glistening foil 
blazing suddenly , A marvelous Horn 
	"Come Away!
		Come Away!"
My heart into a trance 
	my soul to a hound
set as each Eye as they go by 
		so much for 
extreme pain as two won , worn figures , talking 
	till a shade in Heaven clasped her , 
a shade and there she wept and sighed 
	full sore as I fled the ever colder heights
of Heaven ; a LaughingStock ...As 
the soul would quicken to the core 
of that Hard Heart in thee. 
	
	No matter what thy violet breath 
then , wild w-/ fear lies stills. Listening 
Motionless & still before Her Red Lips 
that cannot kiss enough
	as such stars as her eyes
alight in the guilty world no more 
	amid barbwire meadows. The Night 
is full of silver straws of rain even now following 
all among The Waves , Fears & sufferings 
moving in the limpid night ,
 my own firm earth ; Vast perogative as far as Jove 
	gathers unto it all the coloured 
days telling of definition 
	breakinf agony clear her 
cold bones struggle limply clear, fighting 
against the rain , fearful , as I hear You
	Rasping for breath in your sweet divided 
throat torn and bloody . Suckig out 
the sweet Venom , dark, in my veins 
	.  As a dainty fever skips o'er blue hills
thriving on the abuse of a solitary city , Light less
in the maze burying a faded fire.
	Noting wings and often am
I blamed living in the alley.
			Again reading the evening prayers
uttering words of kind ; driven out 
	& throwing away glimpses that could make 
me less forlorn in these cold years 
	devoid of glow . Left Now weighing  salt , coffee 
and the Souls of Men.

Questions

Have you ever stopped to wonder,
Just what it's like up yonder?

Where God presides and no one hides,
Is it Harps and clouds asunder?

When this mortal coil is cast,
is your spirit free at last?

Is it heaven that you seek,
Wings and harp to play?

Or have yo been so foolish,
As to go the other way?

Till the Morn

A cool stillness within the air, 
Stirring of awareness within
I open my eyes to see you there.

Within a fingertip reach,
Yet I can not move
This moment to savor and keep.

Muscles ripple under, 
A soft snowy coat
A voice like thunder.

Silvery mane and tail,
Arch of the gods-
Yet soul so frail.

Oceanic lightened eyes,
Protector of all
Hearing my broken cries.

Wings settle upon your back,
Kneeling beside me-
As night creeps thick and black.

Till light comes once again,
Beckoning you forth
My believed friend.

Though as we dream,
Within these words
Night birds scream.

Into the lands we once knew,
My darling Pegasus
It's heaven for me and you.

A SOUL JOURNEYS HOME

Soaring through the galaxies my soul takes flight 
like a shooting star it explodes into  the air
Illuminating it like fireflies in the night
as  the knight of darkness recedes into despair.


Hypnotic sounds of swirling gases like  heavenly organs 
fail to placate the quivering of my soul
as Heaven bound it clings to the bell -like voices of angels
    guiding it home.

As a drowning man grasps at a straw my soul reaches out 
then close to the gates of Heaven is encircled in prisms of light .
Finally on a crimson tide it's borne away to Paradise.

Beginners on Roads

  I remember gazing at, through some moving vehicle:
         the foggy mountains mystical; the setting sun; the distant blue sky. 
                  It (landscape) winked, 
            and I (confused) waved back;
                 It (landscape) shuddered 
                     and I (resolute) held its hand. 
       Then the area went black and white. 
Meandering words, empty and transparent, filled what was once a visual scene. 
         I attempted to organize my thoughts, 
   readjust my lessening vision, reassign colors to words, place invisible meaning 
             into a little box called order and logic. 
        But the earth cared not for my pedestrian opinions or my confused and idealistic musing,
 romantic staring as some derivative form of deep, abstract thinking. 
          I asked her what do the wandering clouds mean, the chanting brooks and the whispering wind? 
                 And she said everything and nothing. 

Everything and Nothing… 
Well then the Earth is truly a genius, isn't she? 

There is no meaning to be found, except for some formless, shapeless mass, 
         odorless and austere like blank crumpled paper.  
I attempted to mold it, to shape it, to essentially create a somethingness out of nothingness
    … like some God. 
The clump, then, went flat, and then disappeared.  
    And the scene returned, 
          and the mountains were back just in time to be passed by my window. 
     And that left me staring dumbfounded, 
     for now there was no tool to interpret the return of coquettish waves and the expansive skies. 
                But,
 I kept riding in the vehicle, still hopelessly staring into the vast sunset.

Nothing

A golden halo,
a dark abyss,
for he who sees the shadows,
may also see the light.
From the burning depths of hell,
may he also see the shining heavens.

There are no restrictions,
no bounds keeping one here,
here in the hollow nothingness of life.
For we can see all.

Yet we are to be so blinded
 by the fires below,
and by the pure clarity of above.
We are blinded by belief.
For we shall never ascend unto the clouds,
nor fall through the ground.

This blank nothing is our home,
in which we shall forever stay.
Some are lucky enough
to see what the rest could never dream.
 Lucky enough to see that halo,
to fall to an abyss.

Some are lucky enough to feel,
feel the burning of fire,
or the warmth of the shining light.
Some don’t need to believe,
maybe that’s why they always leave,
leave too early,
there is nothing left for them to see.

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"

Cold Hearts

Cold Hearts…
Cold hearts everywhere
Love and joy displaced by the world
Displaced by the darts of minions
False happiness and caviar dreams that lead to death
Eternal death and a pit of molten lava
Who can resist the darts of the evil one?
Who can overcome the Lord of the Flies’ dominion?
Anyone who draws close to God can!
Anyone who draws close to Jesus and resists the devil!
They can overcome!
They will overcome with the help of their Savior!
With a repentant heart you can turn a cold heart towards heaven…
Jesus will open up His eternal gates and welcome you to your new destiny!

Revelation 3:12 Him that overcometh will I make a pillar in the temple of my God and he shall go no more out. I will write upon him the name of my God, and the name of the city of my God, which is the New Jerusalem which cometh down out of heaven from my God. I will write upon him my new name!
James 4:7-8 7Submit therefore to God. Resist the devil and he will flee from you. 8Draw near to God and He will draw near to you. Cleanse your hands, you sinners; and purify your hearts, you double-minded.…

On Street Of Clay

I walk with quiet deliberation
Confident in directions not given 
Unsure of next step to oblivion
Can this brittle road lead me to heaven

Can Their

Can their be a heaven while your in my Hell?

Can their be a chorus in waiting through smell?
Can their be a flicker of hesitation amidst the pain?
Can their be any silence lest of course I refrain;
A window with children outside playing a game,

A shoulder to cry out in the pouring rain...
The silence;
Amidst a shadow torn in shutters peak,
Something to taunt though even the weak?

Can their be a host of angels in disguise?
To hide behind the inner pain of falsehood & compromise;
Chased dreams from your hair my pretty child prove the day/
Out of  sadness nestled in the mere fabric of desolation

Provoked to tears will feed all fears divorced for many years.,
In pillage turned to dust,
Can their be gold in them hills
Now whom do you trust?

Can their be an alternative out of heaven & Hell.,
Today, I have a great story to tell,
Out of sadness a slight bitterness;
Shades of pain leading to its demise in torment
Shades of trees polished amidst its brightened decorum
Eternity

Can their be ?

You Taught Me Well

You made me weak, but from the weakness I grew strong.
You played me for a fool, but the foolishness made me wise.
You kept me chained in hell, but I escaped and found heaven beyond.
You kept me cowering away in the corner, but with release I became brave.
You thought you could take me down, but unaware you were building me up.
Now I am strong, I am wise, I found heaven without you;
I'm now brave enough to face the unknown,
And I know now how to stand on my own.
These lessons you taught me, and taught me well,
From your lying, conniving and selfish ways.

coffee and songs at 5 am

It must have been the sunrise
All the wrongs that I don’t see
The truths hidden within your lies
All the songs that I don’t sing

It must’ve been nirvana
For I cannot heal
And I can’t be your wonders
For I do not live

And heaven can’t have her
For angels do not kill
And Satan can love her
But he cannot feel

It must’ve been the silence
The doubt within your unseen words
If I could’ve just finished what i had to say
Everything you said I would’ve heard

After all of the shouting 
The commotion in your screams
After all your anger
Did you accomplish everything you knew

And heaven can’t have her
For angels do not kill
And Satan can love her
But he cannot feel

And it must’ve been the sunrise
How solemn you sat
And It could’ve been the song
All alone you sang

I’m not promised tomorrow but I am with you
A chandelier in her borrowed clothes
These are the songs a man sings to himself
Before the mirror breaks

"songs left within her despair"

Heaven

Even though you're gone, you're still with me here. Forever I await you, silent in tears. Breathing is like bleeding the pain of my soul, finding my way back to the path is like finding the light and you're guiding me safely home. Damned to eternal battle, you had the will, but lost the fight. Goodbye is now forever, and not just for the night. If I reach Heaven will I find you there? My question lingers in the cold and hollow cemetery air. Frozen you lie at my feet, your stone glints in the forsaken moonlight, petrified by the sorrow that consumes me, I cannot find the strength to leave. Give me an answer so that I will be satisfied... You lie so silent, and so the memories I have left of you slowly rewind in my grieving mind. If I reach Heaven will I find you there?

How do I do this again Clearly evenly and plainly

Treasure this
I think I have found it
I have found you and sounded out the meaning
I have seen the gold
I have touched it too
I have not forsaken
not ever, no not you

You are so much more beautiful in life
I think it is time we met once more and...strive
I want
I want everything just not so much as maybe you do
I think
I want what you can't understand yet ...or do you
I swear
I think it and it becomes real
I blink it
So must I be here and feel
Strafe
I so sublimely see things
I clearly am free from the powers that be 
Never again am I under a tree that shines down bloodless gowns
I think it will make a quiet sound
it's history
It knows all too well that the justice that has served under,and under it's spell
It held
I can't escape , nor can it
It knows it must swallow down the shame and flee
How
It holds onto the one verse
it chokes the other
It makes you curse
I think it and it appears
You are dead..
You are hanging off the beautiful stead
Leave it 
I know you are tarred
I can't receive it
I am scarred.
I think I have found you
break me and make it around you
I am sounded out and left like a breathing beat
I am sounded out
I can't make you bleed
you are already dead
in my future
I have seen it and suddenly you are sutured
you are healed
alive and breathing
beating heart bleeding
how could you believe in me
I am so deceiving
I am
I suddenly hear it
the tree has made me see what it is to be something I am not
I am free
Free from everything and cursed no more
the tree ate it and swallowed my pain and faded
I think
No more
How is it that you are so loose with the ways of the world
I am so touched by an angel
you are my swirl
The way of you
I am
Touched by the sight of you
Heaven is by my side and so are you.

Earth Bound

With just one inhale my life is changing,
Out on the exhale my world has spun.

Falling into the depths of Hell,
Sweep me off the fiery shards.
Soar me to the sweet scents of Heaven
Drop me down on clouds of time.

Every word spoken from those lips to mine,
Brings me to a new space in line.
Twisted and turning the road does confuse
When will the madness suddenly defuse.

Im not looking for a way out of Hell
Nor searching for a glimpse of Heaven
All that I seek and all I want found
Is to stand here with you
In love and Earth Bound.

Approaching Kingdom

Some children refused to hear, see or smell the fragrance of their Father's rapidly
approaching Kingdom.  Literally, and concerning the Kingdom that needs to live 
on the inside of us.

Denial, sometimes we are too stubborn to see the truth.  Still God had to try to save 
theses children's souls from the tormentor's deadly grasp.

The devil used ignorance, spiritual blindness and the power of suggestion to try to
rule God's children.

IMPERIAL ROSE


Far behind the cactus that is shattered through the smoky snow
Lightening up from the last scorched sunrays 
It seems to grow the last mystic rose that is bouncing
And pinching among the brutal wind of this awful day!

What a delight those eyes discovery! What a fallen rose rises to live!
And with all the wonderer‘s fancy, he looks at her strange restlessness;
Find fire and love from those icy fingers of him letting her warn
In from the menacingly and brutally wind! But how this traveler
Would set across the field and sky the fairly miracles to save her?

Come forth, if he does not want her to die from the heaven a natural halo has born:
A human gardener upon this light of hope; a moment of contemplation
Winding a smile of uncertain appeal how then he can give her heat and roots
From this merciless winter in full-throated whistles!

As light shorten, here and there numberless drops of snow identical to fall
And shadows would be all day and night save what he can do from a traveler’s oracle!
Here, those eyes glance down at this rose where youth’s heart grows passionate
And cautiously not driven completely from despair but such conspiracy blink
Those fingers are squaring blissfully around the mystic rose as if they are a lamp of grass
Not care about the sleepy fingers and palms but about the breeze of heaven 
Keeping on with such hard-driving pounds against that quick-witted love!

The Visit

11:21 PM 9/27/01                         The Visit

I sit in splendor amongst the sun
Of an afternoon sky

Surrounded
I look below to see the stones
Skyward proud they stand

Some I know, most imagined
All the quieter now

Deer travel the fringes here
Off to the East a bit
Never to offend these resting souls
Passersby in life

In a moment of silence I sit......
Remembering 
How precious life can be

How voices no longer heard
Can resound within the soul
Lighten the sky in brilliance
Form clouds in shapes of love

Me in the afternoon sun
And you in my beating heart

A reflection of the day

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.

ELEMENTAL DESIGNS

ELEMENTAL DESIGN

Hydrogen to Helium
A fusion formed by gravity
A carbon-based delirium
Molecularly infinite energy

An ancient discipline known as alchemy
We’re consciousness - the explosion - amorous 
We dream of gold from lead and mercury
Fueled reaction in copper with phosphorus 
A universal age of prosperity

Bismuth bath. Deficient of iron and zinc
Astronautic laugh – last shine of hope
Nuclear decay –enlightened way – elemental - instinct
Scientific – logical clay – gaseous isotope.

The fluoride, we drink?
Humanity on the pivotal brink

The edge, a precipice.

Lanthanides and actinides
Metals and mysteries.
Shrink down to atomic scale
Our intellect – an accelerated history
Reality?
A holographic projection
Radioactive expansion
A gravitational trajectory 

Inertia 

Precious pavonine pearl
Our planet, our world.
A place all our elements may inhabit
Terrestrially unique. Diverse and intelligent
The push of inertia
The pull of gravity
The spin of an atom
The spin of our galaxy.

The end.

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!!

Rediscover Infinity

One day I'll stop fearing you Regain my grip on reality And in my mind the stars will have disappeared Returning light where light is due Excuses be devoid of meaning But time was never kind to me I cower in the corner Of a dark and senseless world Bereft of ears to hear your voice Blessed child The day you are redeemed Is the day you stop denying that I am always with you In Heaven you are not condemned In Heaven you will have disappeared Returning light where light is due And on that day we rediscover infinity

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.

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

The Broken World

We beheld the beauty of the first garden in originality
Life in its simplicity
An egalitarian world
Needs and wants afar us
We neither pray nor fast to feed belly 
We commune and fellowship face to face
Flesh and spirit is one
Death abortive

The proclaim wisdom acclaimed by man
Hamper it intended mission
Placed us amidst mess
Deviation from the state of merriment, rest, respite, jollity 
Who is to be blame?
The creator, the created perhaps the mediator
The blameless remain irreproachable
They’re will wheel us to this end
Selfish being
End of discussion hope for a new heaven

Behold you are the garden  
The seed to design second palace
Feed the feeble
The tree that shelter the vagabond yet build bridges
The river that giveth life
The Peace that accommodate conflict yet combat evils
You’re second Adam
Special breed ordained to bring heaven on earth

Awake!!!
The mediator yet live
It intended mission yet live
Steal, kill and destroy
Girdle your heart and take your position
Now you are gods.
Build your dreamed world 
Habitable for all

To Whom It May Concern


To whom it may concern I write
I must make it clear to you
That I do not believe the news you say
 I went to heaven  last night

To whom it may concern I write
I must say I feel just fine
Healthy as a horse if to be told
There must be a mistake somehow

To whom it may concern I write
I am just short my fifty two years
Far to young to pass away this way
In the prime of my life they say

To whom it may concern I write
I must say my aches and pains are gone
And I’ve never felt so light on my feet
There is something to say for that

To whom it may concern I write
I find myself in my favourite place
In a meadow full of wild daisies
I have never felt so content

To whom it may concern I write 
I believe you may be right after all
I am in heaven like you say
The peace is overwhelming

To whom it may concern I wrote
I will miss my life on earth
But in heaven I am now an angel
To look after those I left behind

Depression

Many of us 
Tried to describe 
The state of depression,
One of those:
It's an inner call!

Man's soul
Deeply distressed 
In this world of duality,
Calling:
It's time to return Home!

The travel is short,
Healing is a must, when
Sinking deep into the heart
To open the door of Heaven

Steps Away From Forever

Seconds turning to minutes
Minutes becoming those hours
Hours rising and setting into days
Days spinning to weeks

Years greeting me with many birthdays
Still, even one hundred only a flash
Realizing now when I was born
Just steps away from forever

A new beginning

Tears of sadness tears of joy.

Tears of the father for the 

compassionate flow from

his perfect loving son.


Times of sadness times of joy.

Time for the father to raise up

the son glorified and truly

beautiful.


An end to sadness tremendous joy.

A new beginning from the father to 

many sons, beyond wonderful.

Little Soul

There is a heaven
 There is a hell
 There is the black void
 
Dear Heaven,
 I am a good little soul
 I've done good things
 I've done nothing wrong
 Why are you sending me away?
 
Dear Hell,
 I guess I'm a good little soul gone bad
 Heaven sent me away
 Can I stay here?
 Okay I guess I'm not wanted here
 
Dear Black Void,
 Heaven and Hell didn't want me
 Thank you for not judging me
 I see you've taken many wandering souls in
 I'm going to make myself known
 
I am a little soul
 That's who I am
 Heaven and Hell can't change me.

THE FOUR HORSEMAN

The Lamb slowly opens the scroll,
With seven seals upon it.
He opens only one of seven
but not to read a sonnet. 

When flames shot across the sky, 
The first horseman goes flying by. 
Then the horseman approaches, 
He is white and brazen. 
Sent here to conquer, 
every nation.

The second seal is broken.
The a Red horseman appears.
War and murder is in his eyes,
Soon we all will realize…

The third seal is torn and 
with Scales in his hand.
The Black horseman spread famine,
Across the barren land.

The fourth seal was broken.. 
The wind whipped violently, 
with no remorse. 
Earth stands still 
we all be there, 
As Death rides 
..his Pale horse. 

Following him was Hades, 
the Ancient ruler of hell. 
He came to take our will to live
He came here out of hell.

They will be sent here from our Lord.
They need no introduction. 
They are simply coming here, 
to conduct their given function. 

When the conqueror is conquering. 
And War is close at hand. 
Famine will spread quickly,
across a sinful land.

Then Death will be upon us 
Do you hear him riding near? 
Will you be able to say, 
"I lead my life without fear."

Approaching are the days my friend.
We must stop and take the time. 
To make our lives full and rich.. 
And together we will find…

Happiness is what it’s all about. 
Can't bring those toys with you.
You’ll have no trouble when the day draws near..
God's faith will guide us through.

The Scents I Send to You in Heaven

The Scents I Send to You In Heaven
	
fireplace smoke rising
morning coffee brewing
old men's cherried pipes
and trees
Do you miss the scents of earth?
fresh-cut grass after rain?
salty ocean breezes?  pink camellias?
or my skin?

On the day you die: HEAVEN'S REALITY

Amongst the living 
I often feel..
that my life 
is..surreal.

Amongst the dead. 
I must beware..
These spirits. 
they follow me 
everywhere. 

They speak quite softly.
They complain they can't see.
The light that holds..
Heaven's reality.

I remind them..
They judged..
They lied..
They hated. 
They repent
and they say..
their life was 
quite jaded. 

I can make them believe..
in our Heavenly Father.
For in life 
they did not..
bother. 

They tell me they 
had not a single purpose.
I say, "It's the fact 
you were here..to 
share with us."

As they start to remember 
their happier days.. 
the light shines through..
The heavenly haze. 

They thank me..
as they walk 
to the light.
I wish them well,
an say,"Goodnight."

One thing I can say
they all wished 
they had..
Believed in our Lord..
Their hearts.. 
quite sad. 

They realized.. 
they were forgiven, 
they become quite humbled. 
Their lives.. 
they saw, had a point..
That is when I mumbled...

"Go to the light..
You've always 
been loved. 
By Our sweet..
Lord above."
If you don't believe..
He will still wait..
for the day..
you renew your faith. 

On the day that you die..
He will make you 
live again.
As long as you..
believe in... Him.

I'M heaven bound

I'm Heaven bound
I'm heaven bound after visiting hell
I have been to hell and did see him.
In his suit of red.
I watched the fire and did not burn.
I just told him I'm heaven bound now.
I'm not coming back. The visit was not all that great.
The heat made my feet stink.
God will show me the way so now I'm heaven bound.
A glass of water on the way so I can let off a little steam.
I'm heaven bound after visiting hell.And that is no thrill.

From Darkness into Light

A dark and evil creature
Pursued a man today.
He tried to run,
He tried to hide, 
But the darkness followed him.

He ran down the street,
And around the corner.
He ran up the stairs
And through the door,
Yet the darkness followed still

He shut his doors,
Turned on his lights,
And tried to find some peace;
But even in his lighted house,
The darkness still was there.

“Oh, foul creature,
What can you be,
And why do you pursue?”
For a moment, silence reigned,
Then the darkness answered him.

“I am your sin,
Your dirty deeds,
The things you try to hide.
Your sin cursed soul, is what I am,
The darkness within you.

There’s a price to be paid
For this lack of light.
Eternal fire, torment, and pain
Is the price that you must pay
For this darkness inside you.”

“Oh woe is me!”
The man then cried.
“Your price is much too high!
Is there no other way to pay?”
But the darkness in silence remained.

A knock at his door
Pierced his despair,
And he trudged to it to answer.
There stood a man with a smiling face
For no darkness followed him.

The stranger at the door said,
“I can see,
That you are in despair.
What troubles you?” and the man replied,
“That darkness over there.

He says, I’m doomed,
To eternal fire,
And doomed to eternal pain.
Do you know a way for me to escape
That darkness over there?”

“A man named Jesus,”
The stranger replied,
“The Son of God once came.
He shed His perfect, precious blood,
That darkness to send away.

The price for sin
Was paid in full when
He died and rose again.
His sinless blood can wash away
That darkness deep within.

This gift of love
Is free for all,
It gives eternal life.
Beautiful Heaven can be your home,
A place that darkness cannot go.”

“What must I do?”
The man then asked,
“So this gift I can receive?”
“Call unto God, acknowledge your sin,
Your darkness then confess,

And accept His gift 
Of eternal life,
Eternal death forsake.
His blood will cover all your sins,
And the darkness then will fade” 

“Oh, God,” the man prayed,
“I accept your gift,
Please wash away my sins.
Come into my heart and lead me today,
From darkness into light.

There is a special place in Heaven



There is a special place in Heaven

Written by Dean Masciarelli

January 2, 2010 (6:55pm)


There is a special 
place in Heaven 

That is waiting 
just for you

And you may not 
think so right now

Because you may think 

That the good Lord 
forgot about you

Because of everything 

That you have gone through

And all the things that 

You may have done before

But try your best 

Not to think in that way

Because the Good Lord 

Died on the cross

So that all of your sins 
could be forgiven

Just learn to 

Reach out to  him

Instead of continuously 
turning  away

Because he is your 
father in Heaven

And he will truly help 
you  find your way

If you will let him

Because the good Lord 
will open up your eyes

So that you wont have to 
go through your life so blindly

Because he will make sure 
that he guides 
you every step of the way

So that you can make it 
back into Heaven some day

Orange

How high up are you?
I can't reach you
Solo
I feel so low
Help me
Save me
Give me your hand
Bring me up with you
Lift my spirit
Ready to leave this world?
Need peace
Happiness
Love
Can't get it down here

Jump as high as I can
This leap of faith
I reach for the sky
In hopes to see your face
Reach out
Grab me
Pull me
Have me
I'm yours to take
I'm yours to stay
This is the perfect place

Beneath the Apple Tree

I've dreamt of Heaven's water,
living water infused with light,
a beauty to behold it,
energizing, upholding,
perfect, radiant,
eternal life.

I've walked in spiritual realms,
so many times throughout my life,
one must wonder
if I've already passed on,
reposing in the orchard,
contemplating
life.

You will not find me 
where good Catholics go,
or Christians attending church services,
there are no churches where i go,
just living temples
of light.

Please, don't let me be lonely, Lord,
and teach me quick to hide my sins,
or wash me clean as white as snow,
where the remembrance of sin
does not enter in.

I cannot be other than I am,
and I have no real desire to be,
just don't let me be lonely, Lord,
in faith, I look to thee.

A Prayer's Edge

Each time you call
Your hunger from a prayer's edge
Tangled like a wing
In human webs of knowledge,
Your voice like a ticking clock
Hovers over a deeper fall
From the rock
Of faith made slippery like gall
Slimed upon our perseverance
Each time I cradle
Your voice against my ear
And heaven in my heart
That I may tell the subtle truth
Till faith overcomes
What tears our joy apart
I prayed today
And prayed as much before
That you will not in grief's dismay
Decide your exit through the door
Into the howling restless wind
Into the howling restless wind
The line to heaven is always open
Hold on, love
Hold on,
Angels are gathering for the dawn

WE ARE THE ANGELS

We are the chemistry which hold the secrets of the UNIVERSE. The buffer zone.  We are those that converse with human nature, regardless of the plea. 
We are the ANGELS OF HEAVEN and we know these things:
       EVERY MORTAL BLEEDS.
       EVERY MORTAL BREEDS.
       AND EVERY MORTAL BREATHES.
WE are the MATHEMATICIANS above, that hold all of the HEAVENS. WE EXIST BEYOND YOUR REALM.  HIGH ABOVE anything you've EVER KNOWN.

fairy tale

I am a different individual,strange to some amazing to others just weird in 
general. A mystery to some. a open book to others.  A beautiful indifference of 
the two vessels of good and evil infused within the body inside. Finding a way 
to continue  on in this journey. I sit and watch a empire crumble and fall in an 
attempt to reconstruct the burning ruins as the citizens scream to save us 
from this evil dictatorship of mass heart break and loneliness..light of my soul 
opened the darkness shown you the light at the end of the tunnel still u chose 
to remain in the shadows of your own blindness.  Some times love feels like 
pain but why must we suffer in the madness of the surrounding tornadoes of 
your past year and drown in the tsunamis of the present. When we both can 
clearly see were the life vests were wanting to cling to to ride out this storm. 
So i sit once more and hope my writings will turn into reality. Some higher 
power will grand my test of karma over,and let me become a hero in this fairy 
tale life i wish to write. Tis has all the classic signs a fair maiden trapped in her 
surroundings waiting for a new knight in shiny armor. A image i ponder if i ever 
will achieve. The music is playing the dream still remains lost in my head here i 
go once more..hoping to be notched for more than just a friendly face. So i ask 
once more do i stay and fight to slay this beast of jealousy and demise she is 
juggled around in or do i saddle up and ride away. Its clear i am the better 
choice for her healing but why don't i ever win in this battle of the vertical 
horizon anthem.

Tears from above

Tears from above
The sky opens up 
A ray of sunshine shines from the heaven above.
No rain round but a felt a drop from above.
God cries a drop of tears for the world today.
Wars here and there. People are dying for no reason at all.
Brothers fighting brothers once more .Blood on the hand of those that kills.
Causes God to cry the tears from above.
Heaven closes to stop the tears.
So the shine can shine another day without tears from above.

If you knew

Heaven was an idle thought
And I am --
I have been the dry bones in the desert.

If you knew black boughs
and residue of dreams
you would know

Heaven was an idle thought 
And that I am -- 
I have been the dry bones in the desert.

If you knew light hovers
behind these blinds (navy blue)
and that light bulbs are as crypts
to a morning's mistaken light,
then you would know.

Heaven was an idle thought
dreamt by a little boy
carried to bed in late evening,
lying in a dark room before the light had fled.
You would know that I am --
ribs gleaming, luminous fragments
pieced together with care.
You would know
that I have been the dry bones in the desert.

If you knew that today the world is sapped
and the colors have fled
that we are moored together by brown patches
you would know
that the green of your eyes 
is a lighthouse's beam
and though you have built towers of my hair
                                     mountains of my skin,
and though against my bones,
your bones have lain,
you would know
we are a reflection in a sun
stretching dying arms of orange.

And if you knew --
You would know --
Heaven was an idle thought
And I am -- 
I have been the dry bones in the desert.
You would know

that Heaven was --
that Heaven was --
that I am --
and that Heaven was --

BEAUTIES BY THE BABBLING BROOK and God's Angels Haiku

BEAUTIES BY THE BABBLING BROOK

They sat on the boulders
by the babbling brook
basking in God's brightness,
their bronze curly locks
bouncing as they giggled.

Their beauty was perfect 
in every way, including
the big beautiful bold eye
that graced each of them
centered in their foreheads.

They were giggling at me
because I balked at each
questioning my own sight;
could it be, I asked myself,
God made them one-eyed?

Their laughter mingled
with the songs of the brook
as I marveled at their beauty,
even though embarrassed
for having gawked at them so.

What could I say as I walked away?

(From a dream: Mar. 1, 2008)

[It should be noted that on the front page of The Komsomolskaya Pravda, the 
Russian Newspaper, it was reported on 2/22/2005, that a baby girl was born with 
one blue eye centered in her forehead. She died right after birth, only having 
taken one breath. I researched this, because I could not believe what I saw in 
this dream; also I worried that it would discredit my vision of Heaven. I hope to 
see these beauties again in Heaven when I get there. I'll want to be their friend 
and get to know them better.]

          “...there shall be no more death, nor sorrow, nor crying. There shall be no 
more pain, for the former things have passed away.”
                REV 21:4

 GOD'S ANGELS HAIKU

They are all over
fluttering up, down, here, there,
bringing messages.


“'He who overcomes shall be clothed in white garments, and I will not blot out his 
name from the Book of Life; but I will confess his name before My Father and 
before His angels.'”
               REV 3:5

These poems are the last 2 poems in my IN HEAVEN book, which is 165 pages 
long, and for which I'm seeking a publisher.

World Profound

Heaven and earth. 
Light of my worth
God captured
in an instant.
Darkness defined.
My world tends to
shine for an hour at a time.
I'm thankful for the 
minutes, when I can 
witness glimpses of 
this chaotic world 
perfectly revealed. 
It's in the unforgettable 
seconds,
eternity is found.

Heavenspeak

Which language 
is spoken in heaven?

When I reach
my intended destination,
what will I hear?

Will it be, for me, a return
to the Tower of Babel?
Or, will I comprehend
each word spoken?

Will my desire to speak
another language be fulfilled?

Perhaps, in heaven,
I will speak them all.

Id

Another presence roams inside me, its thoughts presses into my mind and its desires rot into 
the core of my soul.  Its desires and wishes are only pleasures filled with pain; I repel its 
offers of a gratifying but bitter intent.   Nevertheless it never wavers from its path to tempt 
me into its void of a pit, it whispers violently and sweetly “I know YOU better than you know 
yourself, so why don’t you let your hand move freely and feel the warmth it lust for, let it 
mark your face with its deeds.”  I fear his words, words which perhaps may have truth 
hidden in them, no matter how false and delusional they may seem.  But I am not what you 
think I am, nor will I ever be what you tempt me to be. “Tempt you, no I am merely guiding 
you for you are no different than this stout man who says he will help anyone in need and 
here he is indulging himself in front of these outstretched hands of famished children’s; 
you’re just like him, nothing more than a hypocrite who wants peace. Your just like everyone 
else in this world, you let this society pick into your minds and weed out the truth, and what 
do you do you idly sit until your nothing more than a puppet for their amusement.” Know I’m 
a hypocrite who wants peace, is it because I don’t fall in line with the rest when they say 
recycle and save energy, is it because my eyes view peace on a grander scale then doing 
these small deeds,  these small deeds that they still don’t accept and only will show progress 
when it’s too late.  “What makes you think your peace or any peace at all will resolve our 
problems, peace has only one flavor, but war has so many flavors it produces such as 
genocide, hate, anger, poverty, hunger, and so, so much more.   Its best yet is death; I ask 
you how peace can compete with such a potent flavor, when peace itself has but one taste.  
A taste, a flavor that will eventually fade away in the mouth of all humans like all unwanted 
products that cast them away from their comfort zones. Why you may ask because they 
choose to create a heaven on earth but this heaven is none other than one riddled with sins 
and lies.”

Glimpses at Heaven

I’ve seen glimpses at heaven,
But I’ve seen more hell.
All those great people
And friends that fell.

I’ve seen too much pain
 In this world to understand.
But we’ll get through this together.
Just take my hand.

I can’t help the fallen.
I can’t help the broken.
I have so many demons
And they all have just awoken.

I don’t want to fall this time.
Ohh. Ohh.
Ohh. Ohh.

When you feel pain,
Burden it on me.
Because I love you darling
Can’t you see?

Can you mend my broken heart?
Can you change my past into art?

Ohh. Ohh.
Ohh. Ohh.
I don’t want to fall this time.
If I do I will get up and climb.

Take my hand to see a brighter day.
squeeze it tight and let the pain fade away.

Love Captured

I can capture Heaven in a picture
All it's beauty
The sunshine and glory
Peace and love
Everything you can imagine
I can capture Heaven in a picture
His smile is perfect
He flies like he has wings
I swear I saw a halo once
He's my personal Heaven
I can capture him in a picture
But it will never do him justice

Happy Praises

 

 
Beyond the sky a little
Angel swept 

Down here below to touch
Our hearts today

And

Give little extra love to fill
Those that are heavy
Ladden

To fill our heart with love and
Compassion for our fellow 
man..

But without a doubt 

I'm

Sending you this blessing

Sent from heaven to help this
Old world fill with sin

I love the lord

He heard my prayer

He wrote my song

He sang with beauty and 

Of the innocence of one soul

Your soul will be filled with
So much joy

Your heart so full of God's
Love

It spills and spills over two
Times three

So much love keep spilling

God's lets you know it's time
For you to shine

Enjoy your blessing
Lord bestored on you

Dance for the Lord and praise
His holy name

Because we'll here to celebrate
Another new day

I'm sending my praises unto 
You my Lord

I pray for my family and friend

I also pray for my enemies in tow
For they are plenty

Don't know the reason why

Bless them oh father and let them

Shine

For they know not of what they do

When this time is done upon this
Land

Open our eyes upon the beauty of
Heaven sun

For I know the heaven rain will wash

Away the dirt and grime

That cover our bodies and souls of
These worldly sins

Let your heaven rain

Rain down on your children Lord

And

Make our hearts as pure as snow..

Loss Of a Life Time

You walked me through my life from each step that I took from each fall that I 
didnt land and each word that i spoke. 
We were closer than ever and went out for some clean fun but little did we know 
tradegy had just begun. 
A driver as drunk as heaven forbidd slammed into our car and we started to spin. 
We landed in an intersession and i started to pray the car wouldnt budge and my 
spirt gentally started drifting away. 
My brother was uncouncious and the cars were coming fast 
and i was scared to we would not last. 
But sadly now in the hospital wing my brothers nearly dead, 
I am fine but I cant let him go so i went to let him know.
I nelt beside him and stared to cry, pleaing to him you cannot die, 
kissing his hand witch was now drentched in my tears, 
I quickly got because there was a tradgic sound going into my ears. 
I stared to scream, yell, and shout 
til the doctors excorted me out. 
I dont how i can go on in life without him right by my side. 
You see its the stupid people in life that cause so much pain for everyone else, 
so please for me and this inecent poeple world be a smart person and 
dont drink and drive because you could save a life. 
Hundreds of people die each day from drunk driving and dont have a say so just 
remember what i said, 
because you wouldnt want to be the one dead. I love my brother so much but i 
honestally believe that he is in heaven watching over me.

In Heaven You Wait

I feel a stirring in my soul to adopt internationally.  Somewhere in China there is a 
woman that will give up her daughter for a better life.  This is something I wrote 
for that child to be.

In Heaven You Wait

Before you are mine you are God's precious child.  He holds you in His heart until 
the day when I will hold you next to mine.  

Before I ever utter a lullaby to calm your fears a thousand angels have composed 
the most beautiful music just for you. 

Listen carefully and take comfort precious child you are loved.  Until we are a 
forever family in heaven you wait.

Trip to the Heaven Hotel

Hello, there
How you doing?
Good, I hope
Now, I am going to tell you of the tale
About the woman who set sail for the Heaven Hotel

Now, this lady was no ordinary lady
Why, you could even say she had a touch that was heavenly
This lady would have to be my good old Granny 
Now everyone loved my Granny,
But some things loved her in way 
That makes you want to stay away
For you see, She had a terrible cancer who wouldn’t leave her be.

As hard as she fought,
The mean old cancer would not leave her be
Now, She fought long and hardly,
But that dang old cancer won eventually
She passed away, in a very sad way

On top of the big sea, she sailed tenaciously,
Some say she sailed like a pirate at open sea
Until she finally got to the place when Heaven be
And surely as can be, next to J and G was waiting my uncle Billy
Just waiting to see that she make it into Heaven safely

She mounted with him on a horse that was so heavenly,
As rare and fair as you would ever see
Helping her arrive just in the nick of time
So she could say, Mother I have arrived at the Heaven Hotel

In Loving Memory

As I lay back in the tall grass
An uncontrollable emotion tears deeply into my heart;
I attempt to understand, "Why?"
Why has God taken one so precious?

Just then, a soft pile of radiant autumn leaves
Forms a plush pillow, and my senses sharpen.
The warm sunshine and a soft gentle breeze
Lovingly touch all that we call life.

Birds in their melodious splendor,
Fly close , and deliver special messages.
Colorful flowers wave gallantly in the wind,
Each having a unique life of its own.

The sound of crystal clear waters 
Carrying crisp and vibrant fallen leaves,
To a distant and Heavenly destination,
Bring fond memories of those we will love forever.

Suddenly, in the midst of floating clouds far above,
Images of those held so dear touch my heart.
And they appear in fond  memories-both comforting and touching.
Only now can I begin to understand, "Why?"

All of these precious souls who we feel we have lost
Are lovingly watching over us from Heaven above,
Helping God create a Heaven on earth,
Enhancing and spreading beauty with everlasting love in their hearts.

Imagine That Vol.2

Story of my life... you know it's kinda
funny when I think about cuz
when it comes to love I could never
get it right but I can give all the good advice
to my homeboys & help them keep their
lil shawty's and turn em into the wifey type
but like Beans said "Tell Me What Your Life Like"
pain & turmoil but God made the child that
stands before you outta his image 
so I been heaven sent to deliverance his
messages never mind my seductive
sentences.

But listen things ain't what it used to be,
you see it's this female I been talking 
to for a minute and somethings different 
I can feel it in how we talk and the way 
she looks at me, kinda got me daydreamin
right now, I mean it's just good friendship
but eternal happiness wit her is
sumthin I'm trying to seek, 
she got me feeling like M.L.K in his 
Infamous "I Have A Dream Speech"
meaning she takes me to a place 
God took John, revealing to him 
because of the sinful nature of 
this nation a New Heaven & Earth 
would be born.

So you see I see new things wit this one,
got me visioning a new love life, where
even if I'm away from her for a few minutes 
I think of her smile and she's what
I'm missing, so for her to be mines & me 
to be hers it would almost feel unreal 
but I'm love it, cuz when she gives her
heart to me the last thing imma feel is 
emotionally torn like Letoya Luckett

We Step Foot On Mars

Captain Ace Gannon – USAF, Commander of
The Mars Explorer Space Mission

Naturally, I firmly believe that
Freedom rings like a bell with sweet liberty
Go forward young heart of compassion, and
Let God create your dreams
These eyes believes in truth and justice
Faith, hope and submission are components of God
This is no illusion, as it is in heaven and earth
We shall speak freely in these chambers
Once more, we are pioneers and still are
We perform this critical space mission, for the colony
Now, we are the children of the stars
The eyes of heaven shall rise to the east,
When, we step foot on mars

A Piece of Heaven From The Sky

I walk along this lonely trail
The mind a ship with gallant sail
To be this piece of heaven on this earth
Surely, He knows my worth
Please help me Lord, or tell me why
You hurl a piece of heaven from the sky
It Land and hit me upon the head
Then, you resurrect me from the dead
So, I can return this piece of 
Heaven from the sky, because
It belongs to you

Ode To A Dead Pilot

Ode To A Dead Pilot
   
 
  The time to sioux for peace is before the first shot is fired.
Weapons of destruction aer better turned around.
Point them at the darkness and then frown.
Fighting is for ^A^ngels and much nobler sorts than yew.
A Soldier in his britches needs a glory to behold; 
other than the flag of his own country I am told.
Place your thoughts above on things where Christ
does dwell, and walk on streets of GOLD. 
Even in your dreams and memories it will help you to grow old.
There was once a MAN who was once a boy.
He played with toys, and after graduation then He heard: 
Great engines sucking air into intakes, 
and the expelling of the air again to reach a multi-colored
transfer pointe and sometimes after running out of fuel
a man does NOT bail out...
but takes his planethopping function into the DEAD terrian.
Avoiding populated areas, to kill a cactus NOT a populas.
When that MAN is inn his Heaven and rewards come due.
I want to hear everyone in Heaven say, 
'He was a boy getting into that aeroplane, but he
became a MAN today.
I saw several of my men turn fear away from populated places, 
as they crashed and died in flame into the desert cactus, 
to ensure the best proclivity of mass production.
The wreckage of an aeroplane. 

Charles Hice

heaven

I thought heaven was a dream..I thought about so much.And I thought the stars 
was little sprinkles in the sky..and the coluds look like whip cream..It seem liked 
heaven..I had so many dreams about heaven..I wondered if I been there before..
I wondered if it was a dream or a fanasty.
But heaven is a wonderful place huh..
No volience and no worries of anything bad..
You wouldn't have too worry about your kids
playing at the park.

But heaven is a wonderful place isn't it.......

the Kings came to perform

The king came to perform.
There is music in the clouds today.
As the kings gather to play.
The stage is set as the gold does sparkle
The King of country is ready to sing. Hank Williams Sr 
Walk to the stage as he sings I saw the light.
The king of rock comes to the stage and the coulds began to shake.
Elvis sings a whole lot of shaking going on.
The last king to show was the king of pop as he did his moon walk . 
Michael Jackson As he sings beat it.
They all gather for one more song as the king of bluegrass walks to the stage.
The kings of music they came to play.

Heaven Can Wait

Heaven can wait as I long for you this starlit magical night.
A sinner I wilt be but am brave enough to face morning’s light. 
For a taste of your honey lips I would face damnation and hell fires.
Cast aside inhibitions, take me full in your arms and fulfill my desires.
Hold me ever tighter and show me heaven here upon this earth.
Close those pearly gates to me, this moment has much greater worth.
Stroke my hair; caress my skin, together our hearts racing, 
Forbidden pleasures of the flesh we explore, excitement chasing.
Holy water is good for the spirit, soul cleansing, and refreshingly wet.
Nothing can compare to the indulgence and exaltation of lovers’ sweat.
The golden streets and angel choruses have never been proven reality.
There is nothing so pleasureful and stark true than human sexuality.
Threatening words of old cannot stop us, ink stains in a book of antiquity.
The might of the bible surpasses not love, fall ye fast against, upon me. 
Bring your masculine strength here within; rock us away into the abyss. 
Yes I am sure heaven can wait as we seal this tender act with a kiss.
For all the tribulations life brings to me I deserve this pleasure.
Heaven will wait for me never dissolving, as this fleeting moment I treasure.

The Book

I am a book and I’m the author
I walk experience in my pages
Pages made to cover similar hardships in novels 
I puke poetry and sing boring songs while cooking words in ovens 
I believe in walking crippled paragraphs

I am a book 
Look i designed my cover in smiley looks 
A very loud template with innocent news 
Piles of smiles that attract visions not prisons
I am a lesson don’t fall in my trap 
I've dribbled my own games with my own words 

Say it
Say you love me, even if you don’t 
I long to taste the sound of your affection
Say the things lovers fill their tummies with
You don’t have to mean it 
Please say it
Fool my mind, give me a hug before Sunday

My life is a statue 
That Arrogance standing motionless in front of uninvited opponents 
My old school way of speaking new images 
Life undresses my naked truth with no omissions 
I am a lost sculpture like my mother's grave 
I am brave 
I forced my lovers to hate me in many ways 
They tried making sense of my existence
I hardly speak for other verses but souls

I am a book
Say the words in the back of my heart
Say you adore me 
Even if it’s not registered in your mind
Be blind and see your love for me, be kind

Why me
Why am i a recollection in your old shelves
Bloody memories
Why revisit me when life blesses you with hot claps 
I am covered in black 
I spared wheelchairs for any of my broken pages
I am far from segregation
I am your bestselling knowledge in high voltage 
I am your tour guide with guaranteed knowledge
I am a jacket to self-made cigarettes
Your soft pages 
 
My dusty unreadable pages are covered at the end of my life no worries
My mind has muscles but suffer not from steroids
I am addicted to meanings of my metaphors 
Say something about me please, 
Even if saying it decreases your energy 

Blind fold your approach and pride 
Neighbour my disciples and their kinds 
Just give me hope for preaching hope 
Crown me King
I am a simple bible
You know that 

Say the things you thought about me 
Hello be thy word, thy medicated voice
Thy will be written in different styles
Hello be thy easy to speak to many hearts
I am a book hated by many
My racial skills are empty not blurry
I am a book and I am the author
I am your words in your world

The under rug swept prophet part 3

But who knows whose the leader of which or what tangents of mans divine plan 
of twisting and changing words and accusation of lies and liars
To look for those who synchronicity and dangerously know the truth
who will be one day brave enough to discover how to baby-sit reality while he 
removes the veil and helps the god’s and his children come together and return 
to the garden before we obliviously celebrate the betrayal of ourselves our souls 
our gods
Forever and our thrown away
And this test no mere mortal man can properly comprehend
Many victims are claimed everyday and live their lives ignorant that they are 
returning to a place either up or down 

Where heaven is full of denial and hell was supposed to be a reward for passing 
a test of faith instead of betrayal

So there we stood with our hopes and crooked smiles
A favorite angel as the leader of the innocent blasphemy to the sucker of the 
sucker patrol
And the truth under rug swept and this part of the truth, which has nothing to do 
with the inner driving force turned our act inside out, and we were punished for 
the lie sevenfold and sevenfold and sevenfold
And saw a beautiful god turn summers cold
And man's plan with all of his questions are things that have no answers that 
causes the fact into gods heart and piece by piece his beauty that is left we 
would like to grow shatters

So come to heaven with me
Pass the test of standing strong within reason and sentiment
The understanding of what was never said and written between the lines of a 
prophet and a son who are not one and the same but closely connected
The truth of a god in the middle of a powerfull mystery that changed three worlds
And all he can do is forgive what he can pretend he needs no answers and 
condemn wickedly what even he no longer understands
and then man comes up with his plans and those who revolutionize often 
Circle around to fall for the worst grade of when what hits the fan?

A Redemption Song

Behind a grove of trees is
Filled with shadows..

The rays of light shining
From the heaven light.

Through silhouette of the
Piercing light..

The Light,

Shine through cracks

Shadows of souls wanders
Through trails of heaven
Light..

Wanting..

Trying to find their place
From within a world..

Where shackles held their
Souls,

To wander..

Silhouette of shadows of
Faces..

Gently fading..

Evaporating into heaven
Light.

Rejoicing,

Into the grove of trees

Peaceful faces fades gently

Into the heaven light..

Where the redemption song
Is born

Oatmeal

 I look to heaven no vision appears
I see no pearly gates, no golden stairs.
Close my eyes a deep breath pulls back the past,
So that I can tell you how heaven smells.

Heaven's kitchen my mother is cooking
(With love and care) cooking her sweet oatmeal.
I've tried many a bowl since she been gone,
So that if the truth be for me to tell,

Their's tasted poor not like my mother made.
Those oats she cooked no longer do they sell.
I remember the love cooked in her mush.
How warm and loved her sweet oats made me feel.

A cold north wind could bite at my thin skin
Definitely she threw in face of cold,
A bowl of oatmeal and warm winter coat.
Twirl scarves around my neck, gave me a pat-

A pat on bottom and a kiss on top
"Careful -I love you" then to school I'd trot.
She would pull down my cap over my ears,
Run her slender fingers in my trim hair.

I miss it -how? I was standing right there,
My mother's sweet love, my sweet mother's care.
How sharp the memories how deep they cut,
Neither shelved by time, distance nor touch.

I did not suspect. How I could not know?
There was much more than oats in her sweet bowls.
For the warmth I felt came from deep within.
A mother's warm love could insulate more

Than cold, cold wind. Someday my time will come
For me there will be no burden or fear.
At her table I will sit with the Angels
We will feast on my mother's sweet oatmeal.

The death between us

Lonely nights and days
	Dreaming of a woman that did not exist
Moments of memories without substance
	waiting for my soul-mate to stumble into my life
That's when I found her between my consuming thoughts
	Ariabelle: A piece of my heart

Each morning, I awake beside her
	Wondering if we shared our night's dreams
Shared moments together absent of memories

This morning the air was full of ghosts
	I could feel them in the morning breeze
Cold as her skin in winter's snow

Today had an eerie beauty to it
	A moment caught in time
That would never fade away

In the car, we drove to the music of Gothic opera
	Down the newly paved asphalt streaming through the trees
On our way to the marina to sail together for the first time 
	Between the closing curtains of day
That's when I told her about how perfect today felt
	About my feelings of death today

What would happen if I died
	Could you ever survive
Between now to the afterlife

Would you be-able to be happy again
	Smiles like moon-light
After the raining of your heart

Could you be strong for me
	Live for both of us
With the part of myself that's inside
	
Sailing together through the lapping waves
	Feels like we are on an alien world
The heaven starts to brew with a storm
	Cloaking the moonlight and stars
Wind starts to blow our ship on destiny's course
	Where I must depart from you for now

Overboard I fell into the freezing water
	Screams echoing from my love
Into the rain, lighting, and thunder

Spiraling down the depths of the ocean
	Life flashing through my eyes
Holding on as bubbles drift away like angels

Trying to dream one last time
	What it will be like when we see each-other again
After death's nap

Life after death
	No heaven or hell
Just a remit of energy deteriorating away
	Trying to exist for one moment more
My eyes unable to express
	All of the emotions that I feel
	
One last time together
	Lying beside my love in bed
Watching her cry herself to sleep

Last words never to be heard
	Ghost whispers in the wind
My heart unsure where to begin

Therefore we just sleep and dream
	That perhaps before I'm gone
We can be together again in forgotten memories

Heaven Smiling Down On Me

I feel like heaven is smiling
Down on me,

The dark gray clouds is moving
Upon me,

I feel like heaven is smiling
Down on me.

Lord will my mother know me
Once I come through heaven
Light..

This  whole world is changing on
Me..

That old hour glass keep pouring
All the memories down from me

I am getting tried of

Running from this dark gray cloud
That moving upon me..

I feel I have lost my place here in this
Old world..

Heaven is smiling down on me

Will you remember my name?

I want to walk around in heaven

Will you remember me once I walk
Through heaven doors...

How Far is it to Heaven

Does anyone truly know how far it is to travel to heaven?
Have you ever counted the steps to get there?
I have traveled there many times in my sleep
I am a regular guest in the throne room
Here is what I can tell you regarding the answer to this question
Heaven is a hop skip and a jump away from right where you are
It is a pebble’s throw across the river bank
It is a spit across the crick if you are a southerner
And it is a song’s prelude if you are a conductor
Heaven is merely a thought away

If you are walking in the Spirit you are already there
You close your eyes and you can see things you never could have imagined

There is a curtain in the spiritual realm
All you have to do is believe and with your prayers take your hand and push it aside
Then you can see
The key is believing
Have faith that you are there and BAM you are there!
Heaven is not an eternity away as many great authors have concluded
Heaven is in the palm of your hand
It is like a soft kiss on a most distressing day
It is the cherry on top of a warm ice cream Sundae
Heaven is almost everything you can imagine and even more than that when you stretch your imagination
Heaven is truly a heartbeat away!

May I Go To Heaven To Get Inn

 May I Go To Heaven To Get Inn 
The first shall be last and the last shall be first. 
There has to be a last man in line. 
Old soldiers never fade away they die. 
And always on the battlefield they cry,"Away With Him". 
Take him to Golgotha , and email him to the CROSS. 
Find a way to Heaven that will add them to the loss 
of all they riches. 
I like fishes , kisses aer mye riches, 
I love flowers after dark, 
and painful memories , pulling at my heart. 
I like newly formed love , coming down to me 
from a woman made of love. 
I will be the last man Inn. 
Peace is what I`m after , Will I be too wealthy to get in? 
I will have the whole world and I may have the whole world, 
I may have the whole world but I may not keep the whole world. 
I will lose the whole world when Reality comes screaming from the Sky. 
We leave this world with the same things we had when we did enter it. 
Our Love and Someday Smile.

Imprint of God

The hand of God touched my soul
I can do nothing without Him

Nature reveals His tenderness
Just as it does His wrath

Beyond all human comprehension
His love flows down from heaven above

Who reaches up for it and receives His love?
I watch and wait for any sign of Him 

My heart hungers for the day when I can be at His feet
Knowing my pain and suffering is over and peace reigns over all

His brilliance fills heaven and His love covers all 
What a merciful, yet jealous God we have

Jesus spent His life on earth showing us His Father 
He has shown us the measure of His love, the power of His anger

The depth of His compassion and mercy
And the fury of His wrath

I have seen the Hand of God work in my life
By the bruises He has healed and the tears He has collected

I have forever on my life
The Imprint of God

Jacob's Ladder

Descending and ascending
From Heaven to earth
To minister to those
Who will speak God's Word,
Angels are guardians
And quickening spirits;
Descending and ascending
The Ladder that bridges
Heaven and earth
These flames of fire,
Like lightning, hit their marks
With storms and rains
Descending and ascending.
These messengers sent
From Heaven to earth
By just One Stairway
Through portals and gates
Bring swords or peace.
Descending and ascending
A little higher than men,
Angels speak to us
And strengthen us.
They bare us up
As we follow the Lord
Descending and ascending.

Possibly......

    Heaven sent

           Heaven spent

                  Heaven lent

                         Earthly bent

                         Earthly repent

                   Only love is meant

                       For our heart's to mend

                              Heaven on earth may blend.......

Heaven or Hell

From our behavior on Earth, we have a choice between heaven or hell
I'm trying to change my ways so that in heaven I may dwell

I plan to be around the cross and at the meeting
I plan to be with God and in his kingdom eternally

Getting to know God is the best thing we could ever do
Cause at the end of life, whose else eyes and face are you going to have to look 
    into?

I'm trying to get on board
So that I can be heavenly bounded with my Lord

No, not everything in my life is good
And there's other people who feel the way that I do, so I know that I'm not 
    misunderstood

I want to walk the streets that are said to be pearly
And enter the gates that are said to be gold

I want to be in heaven so I can forever be happy
So I can see of the wonders from the stories that I was once told

Me going to Hell is not in my vocabulary
So devil, step aside and get behind me

Don't touch me, don't push me, and don't tempt me
For I have prayer and God, and He will never leave me nor forsake me

If I keep God at the head of my track
He will keep you off of my back

You see, Hell is hot and only burns
And the devil can't do nothing for me but get on my nerves

There's so many things that God can do for me
That's why I choose heaven and heaven only

My Lifelong Love

I love the way his chain sit
I love his New York accent

He's so laid back
And is so cute when rockin' a du-rag

He's so real
He's the kind of guy who knows how to make a woman feel

He's so independent
The way it appears, he must be heaven sent

If it's a sin to feel like this
Then my spot in heaven doesn't exist

All my past relationships were daunt
But this one is exaclty what I want

It's my time to have someone who loves me for me
I'm not being selfish, cause that's what every girl needs

Girls, when you feel how I feel,
Your feelings will never again be concealed

It may feel too real
But it'll then be too late because your love has already been revealed

I don't have any regrets about meeting this guy
Because his love is good, and that I can't deny

I no longer have to look for love anymore
Because he came along and is what I'm looking for

If this is what God has in store for me to explore
This, I will not ignore

I hope this love will be forever
And I pray for joy and happiness in our endeavor

I have found the man that every woman dreams of
But most of all, I have found my lifelong love
