I saw you yesterday

I saw you yesterday

I saw you yesterday, your features grinned,
some silken scarf was waving in the blue,
I thought of what the rains could not rescind;
our images, that in the fields imbue.

I saw tempestuous, around me shades,
the rain's persistence had engraved your name
upon the slate, around she formed cascades,
inviting flash amid the drops, and flame.

I saw flash yesterday, inside the rain,
how beautiful it was, her kiss of dew
your words became my sails on trip arcane 
the clouds, your messengers, 'mid skies to strew.

I sensed the crooked line reticulate,
the sulfur acrid smell and pale flame's hue,
transmuting to abderian road skate,
zigzagging on a water copper tube.

The flame transformed to runnel flowing laughs;
the rustling of droplets on the leaves,
combined the bright and shapely drawing graphs
with clouds to form above, celestial eaves.

I saw flash yesterday, my features grinned,
like silken scarf was waving in the blue,
I thought of what the rains could not rescind:
two images, amidst the fields imbue.

And This Rain

And This Rain

Your verse became a misty trip to distant links
maybe the reason of sun's dodging was false,
affection left behind the borderlines and brinks
reminds of your ethereal, betrothal pulse.

Our time is still, with eyes to shine, conceived,
so is your company, outside my car to stray,
a fog rescinds while slowly falls, two souls bereaved,
the arbor trees in dusky light, remote sway.

The nightly breeze becomes your touch upon my face,
conducts unknown my course to steady effuse,
our steadfast floats upon the brines that dreams encase,
a summer song of longing stills and souls' bemuse.

How many sentiments a railroad trip ascribes
beyond horizon's borderlines and faded strings,
caressing touch of fingertips by airy brides,
- your Sunday advent will become a bird that sings.

Perchance you are bending softly on my scriptures,
inside a car of an expatriating train,
while I recall on Storrow Drive, your nightly features,
- as we have missed our dreamy summer and this rain.

Gentle Summer Rain Art

Featuring:)  Giorgio Veneto

She writes about Fall's beauty in the rain 
The falling raindrops' dance ascribing thence 
Bespoken verse that lightens her refrain 
before the time they met - her steps commence. 

She listens to the soft and rhythmic thrum, 
her love turned to escape and cloudy string 
Where nimbus mistletoe fell, tears to become 
Their kiss of Autumn was symbolic ring. 

The first light cotton mists with summer rays 
While skyward cheerful laughs adorn the land, 
their ceremonial dance diffuses grays, 
affectionate embrace, where dreams expand. 

Upon September's sky the raindrops gleam 
With half of hidden Sun to laugh and beam.

Enjoy the FRAGRANCE OF RAIN

The Universe of You

THE UNIVERSE OF YOU I have never seen a flower blush when I took it's hue and held it there a prisoner captive to my view. I have always heard the song that's in the autumn breeze playing taps in harmony with the forest leaves. I love the smell of rain that brings the springtime into bud and swells my love of nature into a teeming flood. I celebrate the cycle of the daytime into night and find an equal blessing in the shadow and the light. I've always felt affinity for all created things and surrender to the pleasure that their beauty brings. And though I could spent a lifetime sailing drops of dew I've never seen a universe as beautiful as you. I've often sat myself by gentle mountain streams and overflowed the dams that were holding back my dreams. I've breathed the scented forest on the mountainside and washed away my sorrows in an evening ocean tide. I've laid down in a meadow and debated with the moon and spent some quiet moments on the surface of Neptune. I got married to a zodiac with one of Saturn's rings then spied a super nova and went on a cosmic fling. I've run away to nebulae in galaxy brochures and bathed in scenes of wonders on distant planet shores. Every cosmos in creation could parade before my view but I've never seen a universe as beautiful as you. I've never seen a tree once withdraw it's shade and deny a creature the comfort of its aid. I've never seen any anger in the sun at noon when it burns relentlessly on the desert dune. At sunrise I take an oath to live with all my might and reinforce my gratitude each and every night. I could spend some hours riding on a crystal flake drifting wildly in a gale mindless of my fate. Many times I've been through trials or wind and rain and snow then sentenced to the splendors that the seasons show. And though I've searched throughout creation, I must say this is true I've never seen a universe as beautiful as you.

Her Name Was Rain - Collaboration with Casarah Nance

Rain, if you were warm I would dance in you, 
I would be like the breeze and whip around you 
Rain, since you are cold I'll stay away from you 
Its such a bummer cause I want to play with you. 

Thoughts of running through the rain with you 
Makes my heart go insane for you 
I'll hold your hand and slow dance with you 
Alone in the grassy meadow just me and you 

What would I give to beat along with you 
Dripping on the tin shed of the roof with you 
Making sweet music on the wind chimes with you 
Wet and soft on a blanket in the fields with you 

Rain, I'd spend the entire night with you 
Enjoying the touch and feel of you 
No looking back when I'm with you 
Rain oh how I would love to dance in you 

Rain how intense is that storm the comes with you 
The thunder and lightening that stays with you 
Its okay because I still want to change with you 
Rain oh how I want to become one with you.

Pluviophile

I am not a rain dog
With my tail between my legs
Dying to run home in haste
Away from showers that gradually increase 
And then come pounding heavily down 
Like sheets of splintered pearly glass 

I am not a loner
Who leads a wasted life
On doorsteps sharing aching pain
With others who live rough
Deprived of warmth and comfort

I am a lover
I inhale the smell
Enjoy the caressing feel
Of seductive teasing raindrops 

They fall around
With sweetest sound
Passionate the call

It echoes
I hear

water

raindrops dance


raindrops dance

The falling
raindrops dance, a
bearing wall
retains his memories
of years before,
constructing
solitude, invite his
soul
and form continuum,
above to soar.

Reminding paragon
among beach plum,
intently they
behold, when words
indite,
a skyward calling
are the raindrops'
thrum,
the mirroring of
stares and souls'
invite.

And as the raindrops
dance around and
jump
belike she comes,
'mid silences aboard
foreshadowing the
rainfall drops that
thump,
their night defines
again the winds'
accord.

Her grandness in the
mistle's waving
forms
a solemn cause
became of diamond
storms.

Aboriginal Sin

We made arrows from feather and bone
before burning down our homes,
our footsteps slinking 
over undulating, snow-covered hills.
____

The animals residing inside my head
follow me into the forest
where I cross streams to lose my scent.

Bugles blare in the distance,
but at my feet, the hounds lay open,
bleeding-out in morning's fresh snowfall.

These moments invoke an original sin.
I could fell a million men with the softest of blossoms -
slay a million men with a gentle, whispered caress.

And so I pray for my hate to be replaced by grace,

since you are the other half of my heart and hearth,
since you are also a victim to the plague,
it's all I can do, to atone for my Aboriginal sin.

rose-colored passion

it's raining again,
been this way for days;
swirls of graying clouds
hiding the blue of skies
and my eyes

my lips 
seem wetter
than everything else
that rises
without sun,

the river's rising again,
perhaps higher than my own ego
as i lose myself
in the pockets of current.

current, and past events
build this dam 
against what it is
that i love,

damn her
and them the same.

i lay, head down,
drowning 
in the only breath i know

your chest 
rising
and falling
between the sighs
that bridges
together
reality and dreams,

and i'm not giving up my last breath
through any of these storms
that fall from winded words,

instead, i'll keep breathing
deeper and deeper
attuned with your own breath,
as we make love, reality
from dreams

last night,
i saw a rainbow
through your eyes
and i settled myself 
deeper in your heart
long before
you ever drifted off to sleep

this morning,
your gentle touch,
the arousal
of my dreams,
becomes the sun
through rose-colored passion,
and love again blossoms
blending all that is real
from little pockets of rain.

I LOVE YOU

I understand the heart too well
Sometimes it frustrates so
It won't obey determined mind
Girl, it refuses to let you go
So keep pouring on water
Let it rain and let it pour
God I love your wet lips
Rain leaves me wanting more
So bring all the ice you can
Freeze me out with no replies
I beg you, please look away
Or tears you'll see from my eyes
If your new man is getting upset
With sweet songs for my pen
I promise I'll try to stop
But it's impossible to hold it in
Tell him I just write songs
That's what songwriters do
I know you won't tell him this
But you know that  . .... ...

Rain Dance

We smile, it's raining Jovial in dancing joy Soaked to the skin Warm hearth welcomes us Naked to bare, towelling Goosebumps diminish Pillows, rugs, two lie Face to face, lips now caress We, attraction flows Candles flickering Undulating shadows grace Unification .

The Rare Moment

The Rare Moment



Sitting here enjoying the hard cascading rain
streams pouring down the very clear window pane

Thoughts streaming around the light in my head
still groggy a bit from a late rise from my bed

Awaiting the hot coffee that will singe my brain
like that sweet victory over hurt, a precious pain

Sitting here enjoying this most precious morn
so very happily pleased my wonderful son was born!

Robert J. Lindley, 06-28-2014

Don't you just love it when life says, " hey life is good,
 enjoy your gifts and give thanks" ?
When that happens so often we just soak in the moment but 
this time I interrupted mine to offer a short write....

Stormy Love

Baby girl, it seems like you have been gone forever,
I want you here by my side, 'cause we belong together,
You lift me off of my feet, you got me flying like a feather,
Floating in the atrocious storm, but only your smile can change my weather,
I find myself laying down just eye-balling the phone,
'Cause your lovely warm voice, keeps me from being alone,
I try calling you, but all i hear is voice mails and dial tones,
Missing you hurts my heart, like an emotion-packed cyclone,
And that very violent storm, is not enough to take down my love pillars,
Not even death, nothing in this galaxy will be my love's killer,
My love for you is strong, it can overcome any obstacles,
The stormy rain rolls off my face, and drips just like a Popsicle,
And i start to touch myself, but yet my body's all dry,
The rain didn't affect me, and i know the reason why,
'Cause even though we're millions of miles apart,
I will forever and always belong to your heart,
Nothing in the world would make me depart,
From the heart of my lover, that i loved from the start.

Black Rain

~BLACK RAIN~

Another rainy stormy night,
nothing will ever feel the same.
Thunder makes me fear with fright,
Theirs no way to call your name.
To be alone is no delight,
here I am alone with shame.
It runs trough me like day and night,
lonesome here for playing my game.
I wish you where here to hold me real tight.
Forgive me for I am  the only one to blame.

A darken rainy stormy night!
Here I whither away in the BLACK RAIN!
In that selfish moment I did not realize,
all I was doing was causing myself pain.
You took and shook me with a big surprise!
And, showed me that my cheating had nothing to gain.
With you in distance I lose my self,
sitting all alone in the BLACK RAIN.

BLACK RAIN, BLACK RAIN!
Please stop the pain, its my love I want to gain.

Tears from me you wouldn't take.
It was my fault to take the fall.
It does not mean my love to you was fake.
Without you I feel real small.
The hurt runs deep~Deeper than a lake!
The hurt runs high~Higher than the tallest wall!
The hurt is heavy~something you can't shake!
The hurt is like a mystery~you can't solve at all! 
BLACK RAIN!

How these cloud posses my days,
I have no one to blame
If I knew exactly what to say,
I would not be feeling all this pain.
BLACK RAIN,
is here to stay!
I have lost what took long to gain.

BLACK RAIN, BLACK RAIN,
please go away!
I want my lover to come back my way.

I love rain

I love rain

It's a month now into spring
And still the rain pours down
Hey, is it ever going to end
There's many here that frown
They want the sunny weather
That will come soon enought
But right now, I'm enjoying it
Rain, I love the stuff.

Next week we're off on holiday
Now it really does rain there
And I'll love very bit of it
As it soaks up everywhere
To hear it's rhythm on the roof
It makes me feel so grand
Though many think that I am strange
They just don't understand

We don't get much rain in WA
So when it comes,  for me
It makes me so excited
I guess it's how i be
So keep that rain a coming down
Let me feel it's soft, wet touch
I don't know what is wrong with me
But I love rain so much.

Nimbus moon


The north winds blow on loners' date,
it's cold on fingertips and dark,
night's owls resemble souls that hark,
- we met in life, one verse too late.

The clouds are gray, soul's sermon clogs
alone I wait on rain's frontier,
and breathe this void - alive once Pier,
whereon you smiled at winter fogs.

And it is strange to feel you there,
you never left the winds' lone call;
I feel the flow in veins to haul,
a string of tales - nostalgic fare.

And you appear - a wraith in mind,
that distant smiles with lonely eyes,
gray clouds and snow from low hung skies,
- how doleful meet our dusks and twine!

The night ascribes - pure quilt of snow,
so much quietness falls and dearth,
regales the emptiness of earth
and solitude of our time's tow.

The nimbus moon won't spring to fore,
but if you show, my hope will shine,
a conferred love will wave to mine,
bloom scented winds will reach Pier Four.

An Epic Battle With A Simple Question

A beautiful heart pines from afar. To parallel freedom, we choose our master. In Love, the Dragon and Unicorn are! Celestial winged heart beats faster, Over mountain and ocean meet polar eyes. To parallel freedom, we choose our master. Embarking from sun brewed and moonshine skies Two alien races, in war, collide. Over mountain and ocean meet polar eyes. All brothers' swords raise, marching with pride. Sisters of heaven let feathers fly. Two alien races, in war, collide. The angered clouds rain blood from the sky. A new path finally found. Sisters of heaven let feathers fly. Brothers' swords low now to the ground. A beautiful heart pines from afar. A new path finally found. In Love, the Dragon and Unicorn are! In universe Out bound energy Where are we when we die?

In the rain


Beyond the distance
becomes the drops of mistle;
beloved existence.

her verse and songs fly
where flowers blossom splendid;
fiancée oaths reply.
.................

Her lone figure stands -
she spreads her hands out to reach
the fields of far lands.

Conceived caress on hair
unending oceanic paths -
her eyes upwards stare.
..................

On boat's seaward trail -
pure mistle she loved amidst
mizzen and main sail.

I kiss her smile in rain -
approaches in dusk conceived 
spelling our refrain.

A Kiss in the Rain

A kiss, the kiss that will be remembered It’s a mighty kiss, romantic and true Umbrella we held was quickly rendered Then the rain landed right on me and you It’s a mighty kiss, romantic and true Harmonious moment in time expressed Then the rain landed right on me and you We held each other tight as we confessed Harmonious moment in time expressed Our kiss flows with the rain beyond our hands We held each other tight as we confessed Umbrella bumps our legs as we command Our kiss flows with the rain beyond our hands It’s surmised our hearts will always be one Umbrella bumps our legs as we command Leaves us standing in the rain like the sun It’s surmised our hearts will always be one Umbrella we held was quickly redered Leaves us standing in the rain like the sun A kiss, the kiss that will be remembered

Walk Of Love

 
The dark clouds threatened rain in the late evening sky.
They decided to take an umbrella in order to stay dry.
Their happiness was evident on each others face.
As they eagerly tucked an arm around each others waist.
 
Their conversation was easy as they matched each others stride.
Their eyes lit with glee from the love they felt inside.
They smiled at each other as the summer rain began to fall.
No where on earth they rather be, a special glance said it all.
 
They stopped upon a bridge as lightening streaked the sky.
Thunder rumbling loudly made the girl hug tighter her guy.
The rain falling heavily now dancing in the river below.
They shared a tender kiss, neither afraid to let their feelings show.
 
The summer rainstorm suddenly ended as quickly as it began.
In time for an amazing sunset, the first shared by this woman and man.
A smiling mother nature must have thought what else could she bestow.
For in the sky a crescent moon appeared and a spectacular rainbow.
 
They both knew that this shared experience was a rare one indeed.
Both realizing their love is magical and that they better take heed.
To let a special love like theirs slip away would be such a crime.
For true love is precious and comes around only once in a lifetime.
 
`Let us forever continue this "Walk of Love".

THE RAIN by Anna Lo P

"As I watch the blue skies
 Suddenly turned into gray
 Darkness easily surrounds 
 Their clouds, covered in haze.

 The rain will fall again, I say
 A nature's moment I dismay
 Raindrops will soon touch the ground
 The sad feeling, again I'll be hound.

 Splattering rain, the sound that haunts
 Sweet and sad memories of the man
 Taunting me to remember once again
 The love once lost, never be back again

 Every drop of rain that falls, I pain
 Each drop it falls, my heart is in vain
 "Try to listen" to the rain, he once said
 'Tis like a last goodbye, could not hear I said. 

 The sound of the crying heart, I still hear
 The sound of a weeping soul, I can hear
 The silent tears that they weep,
 The silent scream that echos so deep.

 Listen to every drop of rain
 To it's agony, vain, pain, 
 Listen to the rain as it falls, maybe
 There is your love, every drop after all...xoxo

Wrestling Verses


Wrestling Verses


Spilling ink onto paper,
reading tea-leaves,

fragments of mirth,
shards of anguish,

remain,
trapped in rolled-up sleeves.


Turning up my collar,
as blue as these days that slip by,

scattered verses plunge into,
the fathoms of unknown waters.


My ink runs, slips, treading lightly,
penning odes to love on bare skin,

your skin,
your bare back my canvas,

my fingers tracing, caressing, scribbling,
homages to our laughter, our tears.


Wrestling verses,

lie spent, exhausted,
famished and parched from saying too much,

still,

my fingers tickle your soft skin,

my ink would run dry,

were it not for your gentle touch

Nothing But This

Furnace pink roses blushed on your cheeks,
I held my breath when I saw you there,
Stood in the sand in a gossamer dress,
That clung to your form as the breeze caught your hair.

Bruises of rain clouds filled up your eyes,
I held you close when your spirits were low,
The feel of your skin was electrically cool
As the rain swept your face and your eyes were aglow.

I’m just a chancer who stood in your path,
I borrowed the beat of your heart just for me,
I still feel your skin in that gossamer dress
As the sun fell behind you and sank in the sea.

And I never found one last moment to spare,
I gave not one second to grant one last kiss,
But when you close your eyes I pray I’ll be there,
There’s nothing else for it, nothing but this.

Let Me Take You

Let me take you into the rains which stream into my heart
Show you the lightning flashing in my veins
You can listen to the thunder as we stand a world apart
Then I will bring you inside me
To remain

Inside of me you will find the silence of hills and valleys
Places you can wander in peaceful bliss
But you will still see that lightning flashing wildly
Hear crashing thunder in the magic
Of my kiss

You can tell me about the rains that stream into your heart
Show me the rocky mountains in your eyes
Together we will stand watching rain clouds part
As the lightening in our veins
Paints our skies

Take me inside of you so I can climb your mountains
The very thought brings me peaceful bliss
Together we will seek to fill love's own fountain
With the rain in our hearts'
Streaming kiss

The Path of the Willow Trees

I staggered over the stones, Stumbled over the craggy hollows; Treading the ground beneath my feet. With you I long to be, Before my wavering heart stills. Old ruins dark beneath the moon, The muffled sounds of the night, They pale and melt in the moonlight. A soft strain of music, As it stole up from your heart; Your touch upon my cheek, a gentle breeze; I step up lightly to kiss you, Amid the shadows of the trees... My eyes dreamy and dazed in the mist. The earth where I'll lie, it's cold as stone, That part of the earth in me; The path of the willow trees, Where you serenade me. Where two souls illumine in the fog, Blessed by the heavens and the earth; Wreaths of silver shadows and damp, As flow rivers pouring rain, Releasing the storm inside me, When you take me in your arms. I hear you in my heart, I hear you whispering.. my name. For Anthony Slausen's Contest: 'The Scent of Your Soul'

After The Storm

I watch from my bed as the wind howls, 
Twisting the trees into unnatural shapes.
Too much water falls from the sky, 
And cascades over swollen gutters,
To surround my house,
In a waterfall veil.
The wind howls and screams, 
As it forces it's way,
Through tiny spaces in my window panes.
Mayhem is outside my window.
And I am warm and safe
Thinking of you
With a smile on my face.
Nothing can take away
That I am loved by this man
With his song in my heart
He pulls me in tighter
As if to protect me with his words
And I am as filled with calm
As tomorrows sky.

I am in love.

Out Of Sight

t's dawn again ushering light to mother earth,
Like pregnancy to the young one, its a new birth,
But the sky, so clear
that I gaze into it with deep fear,
so I ask will it rain again,
to drown away my pouring tears and piercing pain.

Long, dark and rolling was her beautiful hair,
Her twinkling eyes, an amazing pair,
Soft Lips, Like rippen summer strawberries,
Her memories steeping into me like winter-cherries
Those days and nights of endless pleasure
But Dreaming of you is no leisure

It's the Holy book that lessons to forgive and forget
But losing you, I will forever regret,
Reaching out to you, only for parcels of air to fill my hand,
Only then, I reckon you have left your mother-land
To kiss you I still try, only for the lips to brush the wind,
Hard to realise, only your thoughts will never leave my mind.

It's dawn again ushering light to mother earth,
Like pregnancy to the young one, its a new birth,
But the sky, so clear
that I gaze into it with deep fear,
so I ask will it rain again,
to drown away my pouring tears and piercing pain.

Life,Love,Pain..

Whenever I look upon you i see myself killing you...

I don't remember exactly what i did but I remember you had me walking down the road with
your 3 kids...

It started to rain on us and you drove right beside us and you hollered out the window
"take a bus"

I started to cry and the kids looked at me and said " mommy what's wrong?" I would say
back "I'm tired of him treating me wrong...!!..

As we walked along the way it started to turn into night and we sat at the bus stop and
prayed...

When the bus came we had to pay a $1.00 for 3 and plus me but I didn't have any fees...so
we couldn't ride the bus..

As we walked in the rain we made it home we hum to ourselves and sing songs...

When we made it home something was strange my husband was there on the couch with drugs in
his veins..

I told the kids to go their rooms so they wont look at their daddy this way cause their
pride wont be taken away...

I went to confront him that what he was doing wrong but before I know he grabbed me by my
throat and said sing me a song....!...

I didn't have anything to say because I couldn't breathe but I never thought that his
looks could conceived....

I told him in my choking voice " I love you" he said "I don't love you I just wanted to do
what I had to do and that's why your a fool?"

I never felt so heart broken before but all I knew I was going crazy and I start to throw
things...!!..

I knew then that he was hurt then, he stop to choke me and he drop to his knees and begged
"Please baby please"...

I looked at him and said " you don't love me you just wanted what I had and now I'm
putting you in my past now would you please pack your bags your bags and leave....!!...

OUR MIDNIGHT PLACE

 OUR MIDNIGHT PLACE
As certain as the rains do fall in spring,
will be my love, for you to have and hold,
and know you now--my rain of love will bring
to you, all joy of which all love is told.

No one could ever count the drops that fall,
and so is put together, love for you,
numbers cannot be given them at all,
though put together, one is what will do.

And every single drop adds beauty there
to something we can call a rainy day,
to fill with love, made up, from everywhere,
the drops of life that make love what we say.

Our midnight place, your front porch, dreaming of
each drop of rain that's filled with so much love.

' Rain, Fire, Ice and Breeze '

I Watched A Man, Named, ‘ Rain ‘
Pounding Across The Plains
Running with Cascading Joy
Like a Wet, Happy, Little Boy …

I Found A Man, Named, ‘ Fire ‘
Blaze in Life, A Lightning Desire
His Bold Passion – Consuming Power
Sent Smoke Signals, to My Tower

I Observed A Man, Named, ‘ Ice ‘
Tho’ Frost-Natured, He Did Entice
‘ … Come Hold Me, if You Dare …
And Find Out, if Cold-Can-Care …’

… I Beheld A Man, Named, ‘ Breeze ‘
And Begged Him, ‘Touch Me Please …
Gentle, like a Lover’s Kiss
Whisper to Me, Things I Wished…’

… and Sitting Content, on This Hillside
Listen Now… as I Confide …
‘ Rain and Fire … Ice and Breeze ’
Don’t You Know … You Are All Of These . . .

I NO LONGER FEAR THE RAIN

Today if it rains,
and the skies get dark
I won't allow my spirit 
succumb to it , instead I
will grab my favorite 
sweater go out and walk in it.

Rejoicing with every single 
droplet of rain that falls 
bringing me closer to the light; 
I know, I've found traces of it
In my beloved eyes.
For That treasure more precious than
Gold that many seek and may
Never find is already mine .

Beautifully Ruined Hearts

He stepped over her head,
	with polite procession.
Climbing the pearl ladder of dreams
			Seeking the world, something he would call Heaven.
FeetplantedFirmly
	in the clouds, tapping his toes on transparent sheets of oblivion. 
TAP TAP TAP
	away the roads of old.
		See the flowers budding anew,
watch his tender eyes as life blooms,
				And he finally began.
She knew him.
 	She knew there was a game
he yearned to play; a muscle he yearned to flex; a hole in his heart he yearned to fill.
			A teary eyed—green eyed girl peered
from behind,
	Witnessing a life come true.
A kiss of rain on a hot, sunny day...his relief, his time to fly.
			As soon as the rain came
				Such beautiful ruin followed;
		Places he traveled,
			Children he sired,
					The woman he always desired. 
And so he waved.
	And so she cried.
Such a way for her to die; truth be told she knew he’d forget for a bit.
				Truth be let go;
					He moved further away from when she knew him best.
All eagles learn to fly 
		and as they spread their wings 
					they soar above the rest.
								Riding the current,
										   
ridding the past. Looking to the sky
		Placing his hand on the moon 
and his foot
		on the greatest mountain of all; love.
			
					He is love. 
		She has witnessed his greatness in and wilted because of it; 
				    only to grow and find 
			         love 
					comes and goes 
								on it’s own.
			    
			            One of these days, she thinks,
 		                             he will remember 
				      that he loved me.
				
				      One of these years
          		   he’ll look back and see that while his life was soaring, 
			      another’s was painfully beginning.
				
                                                          One of these days, 
	                                                  she’ll forget 
				    how nice he was to her.
			    
			   And he’ll remember how nice it was 
				         to see her smile.
                             
		     But she’ll never know, for she’ll have a life of her own.

"Holding On"

I've been holding on for life, for love, for us, for me,
I thought the storm would pass by now, so that we both my see,
But the skies are even darker, than they were the day before,
And the distant sound of thunder, says that soon the rain will pour,
The cold wind stings, and takes its toll, each time that we lash out, 
And its one step back, from where we were, when you live in love and doubt,
The rain pours down upon me, I've been holding on so long, 
I thought by now you'd know me, but I've never been so wrong,
The stars once shined above our heads, now it seems like its been years,
And I haven't seen a clear night yet, but its hard to see through tears,
I wonder if the chance we had, is all we threw away,
Or just how much, that we have lost, for things we didn't say.

Folk Song of India Farmer, Clouds, Rains and Trees


A Folk Song of India My Video Song is also on You Tube http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ukRQxnYGQwQ&feature=plcp Background Note: Its a story of a worried Farmer as his fields were dry because of no rains & the season of planting Rice was passing fast. His eyes were full of tears while thinking, what he would eat & earn if he fails to plant the Rice saplings without good Rains in his fields. The song conveys feelings of an Indian farmer, who often face such situations due to lack of rains. Rains felt pity & flooded his fields or his love for Trees & Nature. Folk Song of India- Farmer, Clouds, Rains and Trees The Farmer was thinking, While sitting near his fields, How, he would plant, The saplings of Dhaan ( Rice). The clouds keep coming, But fly away and vanish soon, There are hardly few trees in the forest, Who can call and attract the clouds. To tell the clouds, The miseries of the farmer, As, clouds never overlook, The wishes of their beloved trees. But the trees could not convey and tell, The tortures and pains, they have suffered, One by one they have been cut and burned, By none other than their own nursing Man. Because of this only , The clouds often do not come, And run away without showering, When they see such humans. The Farmer was thinking, While sitting near his fields, How without rains he would plant, The saplings of Dhaan ( Rice). But that old farmer, Had planted many many trees, Thinking that the clouds, Came down on the ground. The eyes of the old farmer, Were wet and restless, Tears were appearing and were, Coming out, every now and then. The clouds hovering on the fields, Saw tears in his eyes, While wiping his tears, The clouds too began to weep. Then, it began to rain all over, And the fields got flooded soon, The old farmer raised his head, And saw towards the sky. After seeing all around, The fields flooded with water, The farmer with gratitude, Again & again touched the Rain clouds. Tears started flowing from his eyes, With happiness, And the clouds again showered more rains, To wipe the tears from the eyes of the old farmer. Then the time came to plant, The saplings of Dhaan (Rice), Without forests and their darling trees, Clouds hardly showers their love drops. The Farmer was thinking, While sitting near the fields, He would again plant, Many more and more tree this time.

A tale of two

He laughed, she laughed, together they loved.
They rode for hours to a destination of no where just listening to the rain.
Listening as it persistantly fell, drenching every thing it touched.
Each moment greater than the last.
Each smile Brighter
Each look longer
Each story better.
A memory being made by a day unmet
A sun unseen, a cloud unpassed
They conquered it together. 
A road un travelled became travelled by them
A story unfolding, two young people in love.
The rain continued, picked up its pace.
Falling faster and harder, no mercy at hand.
Creating a solid wall that no man could see through.
Dropping a hush over this new found love.
Blanketing these two souls with worry.
Darkness envelopes them as this mortal man loses control.
Careening off the road, unaware of even this.  
Unable to waken her love, she's forced to leave him in the flames
So hot, so unhumanely possible to fight them.
He perishes.
She survives.
Their love left behind.
The rain put out the flames.
His spirit is resting somewhere, atop a hill with a beautiful view, unbothered by the rain that falls. 
She will meet him again.
She will search until she does.
With no destination in mind her legs will take her there.
And there she will rest, her hand on his heart, curled in his arms.

Wildflowers

Standing out in a field alone, a little white flower named Daisy longed for someone to share her world.
One day a blue flower named Bachelor Button entered her world they became friends.
 She knew by his name that he was not the propagating kind, but that didn’t stop their relationship she called him BB short for best bud.
The seasons of Spring & Summer they enjoyed the sun, laughed in the rain and held on fast in the Fall.
Winter came it was long and hard they were both covered in a blanket of snow, not knowing whether they would ever see each other again or even survive .The snow fell     then came the ice, this went on for months.

The Sun shone brightly the first day of spring. A few days later warmth of the sun melted the snow, Daisy popped up .
 I’ve been waiting days for you to come out, said BB, they both chanted hooray!
The snow was completely gone in a few days, the birds started building their nests , bugs were crawling around ,butterflies began to visit the two flowers. I wish there were more of us Daisy said, to BB.

They laughed as the sun and wind blew through their leaves.  Then it started the sun and rain took turns until one morning the air & field was filled with the smell of flowers.
 
Daisy and BB looked at each other and asked what kind of flowers are these ? they’re not white like daisies they’re not blue like bachelor buttons. They did not know the birds and bugs carried the seeds from the two of them and the caterpillars buried them under the soil.
The seeds from the new flowers were then carried by the winds many miles away, they landed in fertilized gardens and flourished, although they faced danger everyday. 
as they were called WEEDS ..
 The Gardener pulls weeds out of the garden so they don’t choke the flowers, which cost a lot of money and require lots of maintenance.

However there was a Gardener who saw her friends spending hours weeding their garden , that they didn’t have enough time to admire and enjoy the labors of their love
So she set out to give a home to all the weeds ,she provided a place where they could fit in and multiply, they required no maintenance, rain provides their water .

The best part of all is their beauty is in the eye of the beholder.
 Ask my granddaughter-- What are those flowers in the garden ?
  She will answer "WILDFLOWERS " their parents were Daisy and BB

Purple Majesty

We had saved our precious stock of grandpa’s grape
prepared the ground and amended the soil.
After laying out the orchard, we planted cuttings with our own hands.
Fed the young vines with love and creek water
and waited for the work of the rain and sun
before giving birth to the wine.
To insure that his family would produce the best wine.
Grandpa, tho’ as straggly as his grape
cleared trees and topped them to admit the sun.
He would not purchase plants for his soil
and dug the trenches wider and accessed our water.
He was self sufficient and he propagated vines by his hand


We prevented winds from whipping vines out of hand
to best grow and mature the soul of our wine.
The vines followed the contour of steep site which brought the water.
The rows ran north and south to suit the grape - -
this presented light while drying and controlling the soil
allowing the plants to follow the eastern and western sun.


We placed much faith on the drying done by the sun.
We had one to backfill. We wished we had more willing hands.
We had two to dig holes, and one to hold the vine and tamp the soil, 
as the fruit began to ripen to marry our precious wine.
A crew of four was used for setting the grape.
The Vines should not be sprinkled with too much water.

We made plans to prevent soil erosion and loss of water
to the harden the wood and expose it to rays of the sun.
The Niagra White and Riesling grape.
Both needed pruning and the waste hay cut our hands.
We made sure our methods were best for the wine.
They would mature late, even in warm soil.

We found that more humus was wanted by the soil.
Some magic was performed to deliver more water.
alas, for the reward of a not so remarkable wine.
Again the wait, the prayers, the morning dew and sun.
More work, more time, sweat and callused hands.
The next year we tried a grafted grape.

We had saved our precious stock of grandpa’s grape
prepared the ground and amended the soil.
After laying out the orchard, we planted cuttings with our own hands.
Fed the young vines with love and creek water
and waited for the work of the rain and sun
before giving birth to the wine.
Our final wine was surrendered by the sun.
We captured the prize from our water and our soil.
My hands, today, still stained with the color of the grape.

My First Love: The Rain

The smell of rain coming in the air is my favorite.
It’s not an easy sent to pick out.
Most people think the smell of rain is wet asphalt.
But it’s not.
It has a fresh sent, there is a beauty in its smell.
Like a new start.
A redo on what’s been done wrong.
Such a crisp sent that brushes my nose.
Its familiarity is calming to me.  
I know that in those moments before the first rains of the season, there is an exciting fresh change in the air.
Everything will be alright.
There is nothing more I love than the smell of freshly fallen rain.
I love the rain with all my soul.  
It is a dear friend to me.
Has been my whole life.
It’s the sign of the oncoming season of love joy and excitement.
Who can’t help but love the rain when they know what it has to offer them?
When I was a little girl I remember waking up in the middle of the night, no matter what the time was and being able to smell that rain coming.
I would run outside (usually barefoot) and wait for it to fall.
With each drop that came to fall my excitement would grow more.
I remember laughing with joy and dancing in the rain in my front yard.
I would stay out there until my parents would come yell at me to get back inside.
They would seem upset but after so many times of finding me doing this, I knew they found some joy in my craziness.
I still wake up when I smell the first rains coming.
No matter what time.
Now I usually grab a blanket and sit out on the front porch with a cup of tea and just watch it fall.
It looks like a soft loving hand caressing the world around me.
Nothing is more comforting than that. 
I truly have a passion for the rain.
It’s one of the world’s greatest beauties.  
Rain, Rain, please come again.

Yellow umbrella

Yellow umbrella

Her drafted shape (my thought) appeared aside the cloudy rainbow,
so gracefully on ether walked; romantic apparition,
as she was holding an umbrella that was smiling yellow,
and neath the clouds she visited my mindful recognition.

Amid the mist I saw her smile, rhapsodical emission,
she flew above, inside the dew, her vernal laughter blithesome,
caressed the promises of years before, adorned contrition
the bells then rang but very far, her bright umbrella's spectrum.

And I embraced her as I should, before time's definition,
the daffodils embellishing our dusk, but not the morrow
oh, how two souls had fled along our blooming last rendition,
while that umbrella covered hence, her inward raining sorrow.

Isolde of Fall


Isolde of Fall

Isolde of Fall, recalls inside the rain
composing birthday feasts, with laughs and smiles,
repeating in the dew their song's refrain,
she strains and stares away, to foggy isles.

She feels melancholy and traces back,
where student memories consolidate,
bedewed are two lone stars on crayon black
where their adjoining dreams converge and fete.

The maid of rain escapes the mists and fleets
above the ebon pines, betimes in Fall,
September's form of elegy, repeats
her College's light feasts and bridal role.

Homecoming queen became two years erewhile,
and now in rain, affectionate for years,
composes ballads white, when young clouds smile
recalls and stares away, beneath sky's tears.

Kiss in the Rain

The couple, each hold their black umbrellas They’re out in the rain where it is pouring By their sides are walking gals and fellas But they have stopped in the square ignoring They’re out in the rain where it is pouring The wind starts and blows them both all around But they have stopped in the square ignoring People don’t cross their path, they’re safe and sound The wind starts and blows them both all around They are now without their protective gear People don’t cross their path, they’re safe and sound The couple planned this moment in the square They are now without their protective gear They are getting soaked but they don’t mind this The couple planned this moment in the square Moment surely comes and they start to kiss They are getting soaked but they don’t mind this Their umbrellas are now useless tonight Moment surely comes and they start to kiss Those that watch are seeing quite a great sight Their umbrellas are now useless tonight By their sides are walking gals and fellas Those that watch are seeing quite a great sight The couple, each hold their black umbrellas Russell Sivey

Your Eyes

 (Dedicated to Folake)

Your eyes, woman
are like twilight rainbow
amorously bearing aloft passions of mine
toward androcytic ecstacy.
They tell of endless lights.

Night skies clarion the warmth of you
keep me balled-up till
i am tilted to your adorned essence.

May I call up words to adore you,
agglomerate them into a panoply of worshippers
unsandalled before you
like Moses at the burning bush.
 
And now you seem to fall asleep
but you tell me it's the heavy night
bidding toward a sunny dawn
wherein our love is lighted.

Slowly I let you fall asleep
impatient with the long night
waiting to gaze once more
into the eyes of my lovely love.

Then a lip is placed on yours
and you rouse up wide-eyed
smiling at my romantic move.
We enjoyed the night, cruising on.

in blue midair

in blue midair

It was the twenty first of January, and cold
a needling thin rain was fellow to my thought,
she stood across the mirroring of nightly mold,
continuous the icy raindrops fell, and wrought.

How argent the details became, tho' in my glance
two distant waxen lights saluted to entice -
- "behold my soul because the night's eluding dance
invites the gazing travelers to fade on ice."

And then my thought reshaped two passengers to pair
amid that solitude and needle-stinging rain,
details that spun life's gyroscopic lift, and flare,
across the road evolved to a melodic strain.

The rainfall was transformed to skyward route and mirth
concourse of invitations to absorb me from
perceived time's borderlands that mirrored my life's worth,
descending droplets hit upon the screens to thrum.

Continuum of silver flight, in blue midair,
beloved of winter she became, betrothal grace,
rain's queen enthroned she was across the night and fair,
her laughter fled above cold January's embrace.

A Farmer's Eyes and a Sailor's Shadow

A thorough yield
On a farm field of far east
It took me time to realize
How far I am to my far east of coast

Call of my weather
Call of my winds
I sailed further and farther
To my naked coasts
Naive songs, Nimble rains
Nile of rivers, Nascent clouds

Reaching this far
I kissed my earth
Ground of my grief
Glory of my ghosts
Glad is those leaves
However scanty they are

Cast is my shadows
No longer they hide
My colors and my figures
They cast numbers on stars
Measure their light
Scope my winters
Scale my summers
Scanty my rains
Scuttle I wish my springs

Now let me see my greens
Their leveling heights
Their leafy gaze
Their spiderly gesture
Their primordial texture
Now let me be slow
In company of my greens

A Flower's Funeral

A sweet flower's funeral
displayed in the cold months
of snowy weather and bone chilling shivers.
A sweet flower burned away, dried up;
buried six feet under.

Oh, my sweet flower,
how you once bloomed with no remorse,
like a madman blooming with beauty
and a glorious halo over your head
shinned with such power and blinding glory.

Oh my sweet flower how you have gone now,
resting in peace in the land of paradise.
Oh, my heart it is weak when I see your face,
of once beautiful smiles and warm embraces.
I can hear your crying out to be free.

Snowing and bone chilling cold ripes at my soul
and feelings of sorrow rage through my blood,
boiling my hatred to the world, for losing your
sweet and ever glorious beauty.

What I would give away, if I could be with you
one last night, one last night together
to hold you in my arms, to smell your sweet perfume
that brings back sweet memories of you and I.
What I would do to be with you,
such romance travels through my heart in the highways
of my veins in my body, love is all throughout me,
and my heart breaks when pictures of you start to collect dust.

My love for you, my sweet flower,
is still ingering through the air,
as I travel and look upon a tombstone
which shows your beautiful name.

Come to me my dear flower,
when spring comes,
come to me my dear, sweet flower.
And bloom once again,
twice as large as last year,
and ten times more beautiful then last year.
Come to me in the first months of spring
in my dreams, so I could sit and talk with you.
I miss you already,
and my heart crys,
my eyes flood with tears of sorrow.
I miss our love we shared.
Long walks,
cosy talks,
warm cuddling embraces
and beautiful displayed in a picture frame.
Now I hear the tapping of raindrops on my window pane.
That is all that keeps me company,
that and the rose you gave to me
and a picture of you and me.
Love is endless, even when blue eyed Death comes to visit
and play a game of chess with us,
we all play our game, my love.
I shall go tonight
in my sleepy slumber
and dream of you in the times of our height in our love for each other.
My lost love, you are gone, resting in paradise,
but never forgotten my sweet flower.

The rain which brought me back to my childhood

The rain which brought me back
To my childhood


It is heavily raining, while I am writing these lines.


Opposite my house it was raining all around,
I could see only rains and the showering clouds every where
Loaded with the rain drops and water to engulf everything.
A Street female dog with its two puppies
Was lying on a small gravel heap to protect her puppies,
The more she tried to take them under her small belly
More the rain started flooding the roads and even the footpath.
 My wife was asking me to do something to protect,
The female dog and her two small puppies or else they die.

Taking small umbrella of my wife on my head, 
I took a thick polythene big bag and cut it to
Cover a bigger area to protect the road female dog and the puppies and
Came out of my house gate in bathroom slippers only,
To feel and touch the beauty of rainwater,
Once again after many- many years.

After crossing the road I reached near the dog
When I look into her eyes, the female dog was telling a different story,
The language of silent thanks I could read in her eyes,
As she was helplessly trying to protect the puppies
Without anything to support her thoughts.


After stretching the polythene on them 
And putting two three small bricks on both ends
I felt a sigh of relief from the coverage of the dogs.

My wife became really happy, when she saw, 
The puppies and the female dog under a sheet of protection,
The joy and satisfaction in her eyes was bigger than that of me,
Because, animals and birds are always,
Her greatest weakness and strengths too.

While crossing the road to reach my house back
I touched and faced the waves of rain water 
Touching my foots and my legs too and they were
Forcing me to remain there, to experience water streams,
Running on the roads, when it rains so heavily.

In those memorable moments,
I really wanted to take a paper boat like a child
And to throw them on the water running all around me 
For a moment I was in my real childhood days.

O thank you God and thank you O Nature and your lovely rains
For giving me an opportunity to once again
Be in my childhood days.

Trip Twist

In the void, sipping the zoid,
with mental properties of tripping on the spiral.
Falling down the tail of lions, awkwardly spinning.
With upside down tunnel vision leaking through.

Solidifying all matter that matters,
melting into the walls of your brain.
It tickles all the raindrops dripping in your eyes,
satisfying your desire of a synchronized pattern.

Bleeding purple from the rainbow,
and turning into swirls of diamonds.
Slipping exuberantly beside you; driving you wild.
Where the shadows stop the spirited scream.

Devour yourself into the omniscient grip. 
Icy cold finger tips scratch the surface of your divinity,
bringing you closer to the God who whispered in your unborn ear,
situated in your flesh from birth to death.

It embeds itself in the pupil of your eye,
dancing with your spirit and licking your soul.
Black shapes of madness wrapped in chaos and euphoria.
Twinkling and blinking dust of a cloud. 

Haze filled skies and blood filled smoke raining from the clouds.
Envisions of clowns and demons laughing at our demise.
Chilling sensations of sickening mannerisms,
mechanisms and mechanics sought out to destroy the tiny creatures.

These creatures running crazy into acceptance of demise.
Deprived of life, scared of death but giving into it's taste.
Taste buds quiver as the taste grows sweeter.
Death, oh death, tell everyone who you really are...

Too long have you been hidden in the shadows you cast, 
too long have we rendered your pain.
The world grows sicker as the hairs in my head grey. 
I'll never surrender as demons always circle.

Today, begins a new day of our fight.
And I have a good feeling about this day. 
Onward, we have united our minds and gathered ourselves within. 
Always ready for we accept our fear. 

We accept our hate and everything in between.
Accept it all for what it really is. 
No amount of doubts will over throw us. 
Onward, to peace.

The Man Who Loved Gimewanookwe

He searches her face, scarcely remembering a time
He did not know her; seeing now her dark eyes
Surrounded by age and closed against the pain.

He searches her face, remembering the first time he saw her
Stepping lightly across the river carrying the basket filled with berries.

He searches her face, remembering for a moment the sparkling defiance
Brought about by the choice she made for love.

He searches her face, scarcely daring to hope her eyes will clear
And she will know him again, know him as once she did when their love was new.

He searches her face, willing her to come back,
To lose the demons that return again and again to steal her power
And shut her away from him.

He searches her face, not wanting to look away,
He softly speaks her name, Gimewanookwe, remembering the first time
He whispered her name in love.

He searches her face, smoothing back the graying hair, stroking the lines of pain,
Feeling the faint, weak pulse of her courageous heart.

He searches her face, he speaks her name again, Gimewanookwe, she whom I love,
Gimewanookwe, Rain Woman.

He searches her face, willing her to open her eyes, willing her to remember
And rise up from this bed, rise up and be healed of this crippling fever.

He searches her face, praying for a sign, praying she will return to him
As she was before the white man’s illness.

He searches her face, wondering where she will go when she passes from him,
For he knows she is nearly gone; he takes her gently in his arms.

He searches her face and hears the first drops of rain falling softly upon the quiet land;
He knows what he must do.

He searches her face as he gently lifts her from the bed; she weighs no more than a child.
He wraps the blanket tightly around his only love and carries her out into the night rain.

He searches her face as he lays her down on the grass beside the garden.
Rain falls softly on her face; the quiet touch of God

He watches her face; her eyes widen and brighten.
Once again he searches for life, then softly whispers her name, Gimewanookwe,
Before he gently closes her eyes.

Heaven Shower Me

Heaven Shower Me
By Nate Spears

Tell me something good
Email me if you would
Rather than take a minute
Take my heart 
In a second 
If you could.

I’ll go through hell to reach you
Thank God and the heavens
For letting me meet you
God All Mighty
Lord knows I’ve been seeking you

You’ve been a blessing to my soul
Your heart is as good as gold
Where have you been all my life
Me or no one else knows

But you’re here now
 And I will always adore you
The magnitude of a good woman
Will bring sunshine to any mans morning
I’m just blessed to have had 
The Heaven’s Rains
To shower me on you.

Kissing In The Rain

Sparkle of kiss
Pitter-patter of raindrops
Therapy rebirth

Sparkle of rain
Seeking possession--a kiss
Sparkling clashes

Confiding through rain
And after the rainbows fade
Retired in your arms

Simple life we shared
I walked with you in the rain
All the blues drifted

Unbecoming rain
Heeded to lover’s advice
Moments of bliss to come

Bitty diamonds
Showered their naked bodies
Cuddled bright beauty

Gentle rain pouring
Never drifted us apart
Be still in the rain

Kiss the Rain

Kiss the rain
like the first…
and the last time
you had me in your arms…
Like the first 
and last time
I was yours
under starry sky
where the world 
stood still, for that very moment
that one, solemn moment…
when I was yours at last…
Kiss the rain…
to keep the flame alive…
and bask in what was,
what could have been…
Kiss the rain like the first
and last time I was yours…
Kiss the rain from here on
and I’ll forever be yours.

The Hue of Blue

The wind rushes through the valley
whispering your name.
Autumn trees begin to release their leaves
reluctantly, trying to hold on to summer.
I see your reflection in droplets of rain,
I share your joys, and feel your pain, yet
you have moved on without a thought of 
what we once shared that summer so long ago.

As the crisp air and rain touches my face 
all those memories tend to cascade.  .  . 
flooding my mind and nearly drowning me.
Blue is my mood and my chosen hue that
lays to rest happier times in the summer sun,
in the clear cool lake, under the trees in your arms.
I, now in my autumn years, and feeling so much
like those lovely trees, reluctantly let go.

WIND AND LOVE

I sense your touch in the morning breeze
A hand so soft knows how to please
I'll lay here awhile, eyes closed I smile
I cherish your gentle, subtle style

I believe in you
I know you're there
Our connection felt
You're wings on air
Invisible
But there's no doubt
Heaven sent
Moving in and out

You chase the clouds so that I can see
The bright sun and all of earth's majesty
Then you bring the rain so life can grow
The rainbow comes.. wow, what a show

I believe in you
I know you're there
Our connection felt
You're wings on air
Invisible
But there's no doubt
Heaven sent
Moving in and out

Oh wind and love I never knew
That you are twins but it's so true

I believe in you
I know you're there
Our connection felt
You're wings on air
Invisible
But there's no doubt
Heaven sent
Moving in and out

She is like a Rose

She is like a sweet, smelling rose
blooming in the month of May.
Blooming with large, red peddles
sprawling and conquoring with beauty.
She is like a Spring Rose.

Her heart, like the rose is beautiful.
She stands there, blooming mad.
Her hair flowing, like the rose's peddles growing.
Standing tall and posterious, like the green, stern stem of the rose.
She is glorious and beautiful, just like the rose,
the sweet smiling rose, in the month of May.

Glorious and brave.
as the rain washes her peddles away,
and the gardener coming with his rusty clippers
to cut her away. I hold back and slowly burst to tears.
For I do not want to see my love go away.
But, like the rose she will grow and bloom once again.
And she will come back bigger, brighter and taller.

She is like the rose.
She is beautiful, like the May weather roses.
She is the red, ruby hearted rose,
that sparkles with the afternoon raindrops,
slowly dripping of the peddles.
She is like the rose, for every time I touch the rose,
I get stabbed by her pointy torns.

She is just like the May Rose.
Perfect for admiring, but not for touching.
She is like a rose.

Classic Love

Rain sweeps reckless, outside wind does roar
scattering debris on water soaked lawn;
in beam of streetlight the rain does pour
from midnight till the break of dawn,
until swollen black cloud is gone.

He flung open the door to modest abode
as rain swept daring outside the door;
he looked to be like a drenched tree toad
walking in puddles across my floor,
flinging his hat and coat that he wore.

His face burned with summer now dripping wet
with water drizzling down his taut cheek;
his brow beaded up like fiery sweat
with soaked shirt showing off his physique,
he appeared so young and sheik.

In his doused brawny arms I purposely fell
his lips dripping wet and wedged apart;
he had me under his brash seductive spell
before I knew what was in my heart,
I was his Bacall, he my sexy Bogart.

Work

Work.
Toil.
The pain I put in the ground.
For such a precious thing.
Corn. 
The family enjoys their meal.
They plant their leftover kernels.
And wait for me to tend to them.
Work. 
An endless cycle in which happiness is born.

carousel in roundel


The carousel round goes to circle feasts
The scent of dusk is solitude's  primrose
- beloved her stare with light shall fade in mists
- the carousel round goes. 

And the enfolding of the silence slows
forsooth advances her response sole kissed
betimes the corteges of night depose.

Disporting round trajectories persist
their merriment of altered times disclose;
- Two loving forms in raindrops dance amidst,
- the carousel round goes.

 Twilighting glow of the sky..
 Wanna fly so high..

 Sparkling amidst the million stars..

 As like the blossom were kissed by soft rain..
 Your arrival in life diminished all my pains..
 
 God has entwined me..with my emarald diamonite gem..
 Enlightening new vistas in life as like your next aim.. 

 At an astounding pace time flew..
 But When i didn‘t see you..I feel like..Life is been dew..

 Your divine presence in life rejuvenates me..
 Every tick of my heartbeat resonating wit your‘s or whatever it will be..

 Your innumerable naughtiness made me silly..
 But yep, your beautifying nature had an fragrance in life like lilly..

 As like snow crested the nestled mountains..
 You cuddled my persona..like a sip of fountains..

 Being With you, Life is euphorically elated..
 Full of high spirit and delighted..

 Thanks for being accompanying me my theist..

My Wishes are Simple





My Wishes are Simple


My wishes are simple,
my desires few,

to gaze upon an ocean,
and marvel at a solitary drop of dew.



My wishes are simple,
my dreams not too grand,

to feel the waves teasing my tired feet,
with no footprints left in the cool, wet sand.



My wishes are simple,
my thoughts serenely gentle, calm,

my heart resting beneath a swaying palm,

healing my being, caressed by nature's soothing balm.

Passages to My Heart

Thunder echoes through the night
rumbles slightly…
Lightning flashes its bolt of light
ever lightly…
Rain on; rain on, life reigns on
till dawn; till dawn
till the break of dawn…
Love moves on 
quietly…
freeing the passages to my heart…

The winding passage to my heart
Stores the secrets to our love
Love exists in no other part
When it is you I’m thinking of

Thunder echoes through the night
rumbles slightly…
Lightning flashes its bolt of light
ever lightly…
Kisses rest tender on my lips
so sweetly…
Caresses soft across my hips
discreetly…
Love moves on 
quietly…
freeing the passages to my heart…

The winding passage to my heart
Stores the secrets to our love
Love exists in no other part
When it is you I’m thinking of

Thunder echoes through the night
rumbles slightly…
Lightning flashes its bolt of light
ever lightly…
Rain on; rain on, life reigns on
till dawn; till dawn
till the break of dawn…
Love moves on 
quietly…
freeing the passages to my heart…

Love moves on 
quietly…
freeing the passages to my heart…

Rain Against My Face

~

All I've felt was rain against my face
No rhyme or reason, just a season laced with pain
Blinded, then, by a watershed of years, 
Designed to be forgotten, resigned through all my tears.......... 

Yet through a blur I see a rainbow in the sky
One word from you is like my stairway to the stars
Assured, I've found you, and the shelter of your arms
Tomorrow's season will have a sun again

~

                                    (piano.........interlude)

~

The sun may disappear,...  forever warm within your arms,... 
                                          oh, yes...there you are....                                   
It doesn't matter, now, having rain against my face 
You've chased away the cold, and kept me closer, just in case...

                    You've wiped away my tears, with falling stars.......

THIS WORLD IS CRAZY

Life is crazy far to crazy many people have eyes but they cant see many people have hearts but they can't feel many people have the cure but they don't use it.The flesh they rather abuse it knowledge they misuse it.You never understand the rain until you walk through it.They rather watch many suffer and prescribe false medication and watch them go through it.Why do they do it?We all have dreams and we try to pursue it.I say together we can do it but others step on heads just to do it and those are the ones that most likely win, those who sin.Those who sit back and grin when the arrows rain down on them .I wish I stayed in the womb and never crawled out.I would have held on to every organ.I swear those doctors would have never ever got me out.Send a message to the roses tell them to never bloom because the moment they bloom there  beauty will be born in doom and die far to soon.Look the gardener he is going to cut their stem and steal the beauty from them,another lost gem.As for me they try to defeat me delete and beat me but I stand strong I will last long in the rough winds and when the tornadoes come in and when the demons rush in because their here on earth killing us slowly and there contaminating the spiritual and religious leaders that claim to be holy.Holy water dose not work on those demons don't make your self look stupid and to restore earths love we need more than cupid in the worlds veins flow venomous fluids.We say we love but we hate we say we live but without fate we say jesus we need you but get to church late but wait we try to regulate but some how its far to late I bet GOD already closed the gate its sad to say it.We hide and run in all the wrong  places, stand only in the power of the lord and tie your shoe laces. Some have money and think they have it all some have college degrees and think they know it all but if you don't have GOD you don't have sh!t at all you stand and you fall yet he will answer when you call.I learned the hard way it was never easy you ever woke up and had nothing to eat you ever got dressed and knew exactly what you were going to wear because you only had one thing to wear and only had a couple pairs of under wear and you put it on with a couple of tears. In this world you have to struggle to be understood and to be somebody or should I say be apart of the norm which I don't understand because I came out of a woman just like you and we will equally be six feet under me and you..

DARK SKIES

The wind crept up - the skies ever so dark
Black, slick, clouds and calamity enters thy soul
Dreary! It chatters and limbs they fly
No sun upon thy face - beaming with hue
Those clouds they swarm in darkness
Rain - it pours - flooding the earth
Bewildered I look up at this blustering sky
The trees are dead, It's spring - yes death
Roses in the ground with the trickling raindrops
The April showers - You haven't a clue
True grit! The soil now nurtured
The roots - feeding on this phenomena
And yet when the sun shines soon
Day after day - trees will come to life
And roses in bloom- life after winter death
In awe I see this beautiful imagery
In my brain, as I see the pouring rain
My mind - I visualize - the beauty
Thus, why does it expose calamity?
Beauteous be the wonder in my eyes
And how I love those dark dreary skies
A rosebud in my teeth - I see
Is extraordinary and so is the tree
Let there be rain as it nurtures the soil
And with the chatter of the wind, let there be turmoil 
Again in my brain, I can truly love this day
I see life in the rain that is pouring today.

Raindrops

It was the raindrops, that were tapping on my window pane
that night you left
packed your bags, calling the yellow cab
and driving away into the Red Sun.
I prayed you'd come back, but never did you return.
Nothing but a simple picture with us together,
covered with my tears
and the raindrops that tap at my window pane
now all keep me company in my time of sorrow and darkness.

The raindrops, along with a peaceful Chopin masterpiece
sing to me and ask me why I'm crying.
The metaphors I sprung out with curious thoughts of us
are no more around, and I shead tears, every  minute or so.
I close my eyes and see you.
A flash of light, a crack in the sky and a bomb exploding
in my ears wake me from paradise
and I get scared, for I lose your face.
But the raindrops tapping on my window pane sooth me
and cry with me.

For the raindrops want to come into my room
and hug me and talk, but if they do, they with ruin the carpet.
Raindrops on lone nights without you, can be the closest thing
to a friend.
The raindrops stopped tapping for a moment and I was sad.
"Where are you going rain?" I asked with a lump of sorrow in my windpipe.
"I have to go, for others like you need me." The rain said.
"Don't leave me alone in the darkness." I said.
"I'm sorry, but I shall return to see you another night."

Soon the raindrops stopped tapping away on my window pane.
I heard silence. I looked at the picture of my love, who left
and I created my own raindrops and sombered away in sorrow.
Soon the pain was gone till the rain returned and asked to see how I was doing.

The raindrops tapped away at my window pane.
I sat in my red, pattened chair and asked a question.
"Sweet raindrops, have you ever been in love?"
The raindrops did not answer, just tapped away at my window pane.
I soon fell in love with the rain, that came down from the dark and gloomy skies
and I felt loved for a moment, when the raindrops came back to love me once again.
And we sat there for an hour
Enjoying each other's presents.
The raindrops soon spoke, with the tap upon my window pane,
the rain said, "I love you."
I smiled and opened the window, and the rain came in
and ruined the carpet.

Walking In The Rain

Another day, three in a row 
the rain comes down
She found herself out in it 
walking to who knows where 
looking for a flower's bloom 
hoping to see it there

for so many years it rained 
inside of her own mind 
love pushed away, and locked 
without a key to find

the rain of all the hidden hurt 
fell like a thousand tiny drops 
as each footstep puddle sounded 
as if her heart would stop

each and every drop falls down 
into a living well 
in broken vessel empty now 
rain will someday dwell

Another day, four in a row 
the rain comes down

In Bloom

Written July 29, 2013


The wind blows the rainbows down
Turns your frown upside down
Then spins it back around

The sun hides the moon
Underneath its coat in bloom
The flowers came late this June

The rain in a teardrop
Falls like dew from a leaf
When she looks at me

See that look upon her face
Used to take her to the stars
Now she's headed back from Mars

Now that Venus loves her more
Wouldn't throw her to the floor
Like before

Grey Bird

On that cloudy weekend in June 
I hear a soft and graceful tune 
from the grey bird on the tree 
branch 
Singing sweet lullabies felt 
blessed in the moment 
My body tingles of joy at sight 
Gazing out through 
my open door,
Letting thoughts fly free
Releasing love out into the horizon 
Heart filled with emotion came 
over me 
Grey bird stood playing its tune 
for awhile and on the wings of 
letting go
Then as the rain fell from the 
sky the grey bird flew away 
gracefully 
I blew a kiss to the clouds and 
utterd these simple words of I 
Love You father ( who's now in 
heaven ) and yet I hope to hear 
that grey bird sing again once 
more for me 
Farewell, love your son

The Man Who Loved Rain Woman

She loved him when she was a young girl, stepping softly on the rocks,
Holding her basket close, as rain fell on her dampened hair;
Seeing him across the river, she raised her eyes to his, and smiled;
Looking upon The Man Who Loved Gimiwanookwe.

Her love grew stronger when they first knew each other, 
Silently, among the towering pines, hidden from their families, 
She reached her hand to his, loving him as rain and thunder raged;
Giving herself to The Man Who Loved Gimiwanookwe.

Her love grew stronger when they defied their fathers and rode away,
Running the white horse full out against the wind, as rain pounded the world;
Laughing as she laid her face against his back, seeking shelter,
Resting upon The Man Who Loved Gimiwanookwe.

Her love grew stronger when she felt the consequences,
Of losing all she knew, all she was born to be,
A woman who chose to live hard and uncertain;
Keeping with The Man Who Loved Gimiwanookwe.

Her love grew stronger when they birthed their child,
He easing the child from her heaving body,
She looking silently to the heavens as rain melted her tears;
Trusting in The Man Who Loved Gimiwanookwe.

Her love grew stronger when their children grew away,
And he became restless, longing for his lands, his heritage;
Leaving her on a day of bitter darkness, rain fell on his bowed head;
Looking away from him, pulling inward, her sorrow met the rain;
Grieving for The Man Who Loved Gimiwanookwe.

On a day when rain softly touched the world,
He returned to her, with fear in his eyes --
She had never seen him afraid;
He told her he had dreamed of the white horse,
Running full out against the wind,
Ridden by The Man Who Loved Gimiwanookwe.

Her tears fell upon his face
And became the rain,
As she held him close,
And the day faded from his eyes.

The white horse thundered towards the heavens,
Running full out against the wind as she leaned against his neck.
Her tears pounded the world as she rode against the wind,
Urging her spirit horse to mount faster towards the sky.

She is Rain Woman, daughter of the spirit god,
Riding upon the white horse, thundering across the skies,
Her tears of pain and sorrow fall upon the earth;
Mourning The Man Who Loved Gimiwanookwe.

[‘Gimiwanookwe’ from the Ojibwe language meaning ‘Rain Woman’.  This poem is based on nothing other than my imagination, and I mean no disrespect to the Ojibwe peoples.]

Dance in the Rain

There you go again crying in the rain.
You pour your heart out and your tears
fall like raindrops from heaven.
You turn away from this world and
contented yourself with isolation.

The rain became your refuge,
your only friend.

If only you have looked back.

I was there crying with you in the rain,
the sole witness of the tears you have shed.
The one who's dying to reach you within
those walls you have built around you.

There I go again running in the rain.
For this heart constantly cries and goes to
the past that was us,
And memories became my only friend in isolation.

The rain hid my tears,
And I pretended to enjoy the droplets hitting my face.

If only you have reached for my hand.

I was just there patiently waiting,
For you to see, to feel
that I'm crying for us.

But then,
the rain may have been too loud,
for you to hear the sound of my tears
falling in the ground.

The Rain

I remember the first time I had acknowledged the rain
Wrapped in your arms, what a cosy scene!
The rain drops had caressed and made a mess of my hair
but I didn't seem to care because you were near.

The rain had made the moment a little more special
A little more memoriable, a liitle more pleasurable
I have discovered in your eyes, LOVE
when I first acknowledged the rain.

That picturesque moment would never be forgetten
It was like a moment frozen in time, a moment that would like a good movie be rewatched or recorded over and over again in the mind.

Goodbye my Summer Love

Though the midnight summer rains
as we sit together under the geraniums,
hanging low and at full bloom,
we hold hands and talk of old times;
times that were kind to us and our youth.
As summer storms light up the night skies
We kiss the storm away, as it rolls through the grey skies
and the lighting cracks the clouds in half,
riping a hole in the universe, as we kiss the night away.

We sit throughtout nightlong summer dreams
and talk, and we hear the storms roll into the golden hills
of summer meadows filled with roses and a field full of daisies.
Love rests in time to see us grow old together,
and love strengthens its walls and pulls us closer together.
We shall go now, as day turns to night,
into our chamber of love and sleep the night away, together.
Hold us close to each other, as I rest my head on you sweet bossom,
and you nurture me to life of talks of love and beauty.

Nature whispers and sings us songs,
as we kiss and go for walks through the countryside
looking at the golden hills soaked in the rolling storms
that summer offers every year, upon a silver platter.
Sooth me, my love as I tell you of the sorrow I have witnessed.
Embrace me with your curiousity and tell me of the beauty in
the secrets of life and its hidden messangers
that hold secret letters from Devils that send temptations
to destroy something that we share, that is so beautiful and true.
Tell me that life will be okay, and my love is still true and with you.
Tell me my sweet and beautiful love, tell me if everything will be alright.

Love has seen us come and go, through the narrowed and sprinkled streets,
as we move through life fused at hands and eyes blind, not noticing the possiblities of death at any moment stalking us with knives jabbing at our backsides.
We are blind, for we see each other and only each other.
As we live life eyes a blazed looking at the sun, we do not notice the obvious between us.
Caring from me, at my time of need I never noticed the betrayal of our love.
My heart sees, but I deny the obvious and see what I hear.

As I see the knife drive deep in my heart,
you with a suitcase in hand,
I stand on my front steps and I watch the summer storms
come back over the golden hills to say, "hello"
Love is the same everytime, like a summer storm;
beautiful to watch, but when it leaves, it is depressing to say, "goodbye"
Now I sit, as the geraniums dry up and die
and the wrinkles at my eyes make me blind,
I see love walk past my house and mock me with lone kisses.

The Rain

Do you want stars or do you want rain clouds?
Sway and if the music stops,
Answer before the next tune,
I will hear your heart’s desire
Star lights or raindrops?
 
Let me hold your waist and you hold my hand,
Dancing from star to star,
Night eyes watching us
Every pace we made,
forever near and never afar…
 
This is the first time or this happened before?
Sitting on the flight of the stair,
Leaning on the each other
Like cards building a castle,
When the rain washed the despair?
 
Sliding tears of sadness or sliding tears of joy?
Both for me are just the same,
When you are sad and lonely
You search my arms to hide,
Then you give to joy my name.

Set To Sea

"Set To Sea"                  

No more rain that taste like tears...
Took my sorrows that I buried in years...
Placed them in a bottle and sent them to sea...
Hoping the tide will carry them far away from me...
Maybe to an island where other bottles hold the same..
A place where pain and sorrow is never a game...
Now the rain is just a cool reminder of a different time...
A refreshing drop of water that tastes only of happy signs.  
So let it rain, I will lay under it and let it awake and inspire me...
So I can write and play and never dread the rain and thank the sea...
A little more insight to how I love and how I blow off steam....
I play with words and love others to read and follow my dreams...

RAINY DAYS

Rainy days
Create malaise
I thought hard about going out
Gray blurry skies
Depress my eyes
And filled my mind with doubt
One windy stroke
My umbrella broke
These stormy blues made me pout
You thought me cute
Offered to share your chute 
Girl, you make me want to shout..
Rainy daze!

Like the frightened Jackrabbit, I run away from Love

Jump up and down like a jackrabbit
running through meadows
running from what?
Could it be heartbreak,
a venemous snake that hides in the grass,
hiding with fangs ready to pierce the tender skin
upon the tight, bronze flesh of everyday life?
Goodbye, Goodbye, Goodbye now!
I need a vacation a long way away from the faceless smiles
and ignorance of young girls, who don't look at you,
who don't show you love and respect.
Goodbye, Goodbye, Goodbye now,
as jumping spiders hop everywhere, crawling eight legs around me
my soul black like carcoal, but my heart still beating
slower this time, not like the days before
and like the jackrabbit running from anything and everything,
I run to seek love and vanish away from the empty voids
that people call, their souls.
Recording a film with no tape,
talking to a woman you love, but not having the guts to tell her how you really feel
Jump my boy, like a jackrabbit, take my advice
tell her before she leaves
turns down the endless avenues of endless dark love
the trees grow taller, taller than you
and you sit there feeling away yourself die, missing out in life.
I cannot see you lose your love.
Say it, say it, Say it!!! Tell her! Tell her! Build the guts up!
Build up the courage, tell her how you feel. Take her by the hand and never say goodbye! Never say goodnight, stay with her till the flight comes in the morning
of the first rays of sun shine through your dorm room take her and love her!
Do not be like me, the jackrabbit! I see no happiness
Reading poetry it makes me sad,
to write of others falling in love and I never finding the one.
People tell me, you'll find yours, have hope
but I am a frightened little jackrabbit
who flees from sounds of deep emotions, not having courage to fall in love,
not building the guts up to tell her how I really feel.
She walks alone, I find my oppertunity and sing my love song
She smiles and moves on,
please tell me I cannot fight anymore.
All I have to say is Goodbye, Goodbye, Goodbye
I need a vacation
to go to some sandy beach on an island of love
and write and write and write, the same poetry that depresses me
but makes you all fall in love with words!
Fiction about love stories, please kiss me
Blue eyed death comes, plays a game of chess with me
I bet twenty, he bets my soul
Kiss me death, the only love I'll ever get,
besides my poet friends who kiss my ass
Listen to my heart, truely, I don't write of beauty
I write for the sorrow soul, the fleeing jackrabbit
running away from love.....

Till Shines The Day

Tenderly hits the rain on the window

Cheers my heart as it sweeps away the dust

Fits me between roses of green meadow

Deluding me to dream, or so I must

So softly it fell as poets may tell

Passes on the gentle chill of winter

Carries me to you as I hoped it will

Lost dreams to miss, and nights to remember

Still I remember what nights left behind

Still I rejoice when rain knocks on the door

As it flames my heart, too hopeful yet blind

To shine on sweet moments I have no more

For as rain drops sneak when sun is away

So does my heart, steals dreams till shines the day

Rain

The rain fell down fiercely today.
Washed the trees and washed the birds,
the cars that slowly passed by,
And washed the red roofs of houses in town.

It just couldn't wash away this sorrow,
this inate, nevergone feeling of being alone.
My lips move but what do they say?
not a word from what runs within.

And I always hoped that like salt
the rain would melt it all away,
releasing the heavy lid upon my chest.
A naive expectation,
A silly childish mistake.

For I will die misunderstood,
I'll surely die being betrayed,
No doubt I'll die trying to mend
my full of hope, broken, bleeding heart
that 's been always as heavy as the rain that fell down today.

I Score a Duck Due to No Luck

      

Luck is not in my dictionary
So, my life, losses only carry

Of course I make a honest try
But, ignores it God in the Sky

When I well prepare for the exam
Fate changes that day's program

In case I buy my favorite fruit
My joy, all tiny worms loot

If I go to the doctor for consultation
He would have gone out of station

When to tell my deep love I at last plan
She becomes the wife of another man

In the terrace when I put the flour
Suddenly comes a heavy downpour

I bought for my relative honey bottle
With diabetes he is making a battle

I gave generously bread to a beggar
He took it not due to severe sugar

Next day he to me sadly lamented
For his unhappiness, I repented

Superb English poems I finely write
My mother has no English might

When I decide to see today TV
Work in the office will turn heavy

When I aim for promotion in career
Head Office cancels it for that year

When I take the rain coat cautiously
Sun will generate heat mercilessly

In case I take not the rain coat
For severe rain, weather will vote

When I love to become a friend
His hand, none will kindly extend

While hearing a song in the radio
My family will prefer only the video

When I go cheerfully to the theater
Gets then punctured my scooter

God does not like me a bit
He does only the opposite

So I love not to live longer
Then God makes me linger

For five decades this is happening
So my disappointment is deepening.

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.

The Storm

Rain falls on the roof
Each drop plays a familiar note
I toss and turn no sleep to be found
The storm rages on

A chill fills the summer air
My body aches with fear and longing
No comfort to be found inside
The storm rages on

Raindrops hit my face
One by one, they awaken my senses
To erase fear, doubt, and sensibility
The storm rages on

Lightning streaks across the sky
I am blind to the dangers ahead
In the flash of light I see only hope
The storm rages on

As fast as it came
The rain starts to fade
I retreat inside my shelter
The storm rages on

My thirst overcomes me
I am consumed by the need
To feel the rain on my face again
The storm rages on

The stars shine like gems
On a cloudless night
I toss and turn no sleep to be found
The storm rages on

love's drowning

over waves of the sounds from the glass of the sea
comes a shreak that dispersed on a night that was cursed
and flys cold with a chill; it lands squarely on me
my eyes did turn quick and wonder about
crystal pale blue was the scenes only hue
hand to my head, filled now with doubt
but was there distress on that morn i awoke?
with the sands at my feet; on an air crisp with sleet
as the autumn sun's light had not yet full broke
the question that's posed in these ramblings you'll see
for she lay down beside during moonlight's high tide
why that night my love left, n'er a word spoke to me?

Climbing the Rainbow

Love is climbing the rainbow
With someone at your side
Unearthing pot of gold
And making her your bride.

Love in walking hand in hand
Along the colors of  your dreams
And find she’s still beside you
As the sun spills out on morning’s gleam.

Cautiously you amble on the arches
Sympathetic to the tenuous  tones
Find surrender  in the lust of love
And capture her with  arduous moans.

Treasuring the time
Lest  the colors wane
Fearing might the magic melt
Like vapor after rain.

If

If I could hold only you know
Still as the night when you cried alone
Solitary as the day you sat on that stone
And still be your king without a throne
If I could only recover love unknown
If I could hold only you now

If I could see only you now
Knocking on my door once again
Singing with me through sunshine and rain
Kneeling with me amidst the sugarcane
If memory did not make it more vain
If I could see only you now

All I believe have turned to dust
Cocoon and butterflies change and change
Time moves forward on life's backward range
Sorrow is a heart broken and strange
How love our world can so disarrange
All I believe have turned to dust

We long in wind and rain have learned nothing still
Not what we know, but what we believe we are
And nothing like is told by seers or star
Expectations make the truth strange as far
While we pine like a surf to cross the bar
We long in wind and rain have learned nothing still

If I could hold you now
Once again beside the lime tree still
And undo the errors of our will
Keep the world with jasmines fill
If I could you again over the hill
If I could hold you now

First Day of Spring

Written October 26, 2013


Love cries out from a songbird
On the first day of spring
And all the flowers bloom in the rain
And sunshine reigns
Over every boy and every girl
In this town that's driving me insane

On the first day of spring
The beginning of the end
Blue skies pulling me in
Along with all my friends
Rain shields the sun again

Alone in my room
I rescind
To the deepest depths of my soul
To sew back shut a hole
That will make me whole

I'm melting to the permafrost
How I feel so lost
In the world I used to call my own
Now I feel so alone
Without a house to call my home

Flat Canvas

Flat canvas;

Bubbling brown ridges strike 
The confining dimensions in a hostile yawn: 
Upwards, Outwards.

Walk the world no longer, an ending beckons, 
A precipice builds moments where swallows wager wings 
On new seed: New breeds.
Falling buys the assurance of seconds
From a sinking well. 
Oh well.

Remember us when the globe begins to slip,
Bang drums for our pity:
Our crescendos mean less than meaningless.
And then, when spheres crack, continue 
On the whorl of a thumb, 
Stretching hope to nothing.
Run.

The Nude Girl

There is a beautiful girl sitting
Awaiting the rain to come down
She’s sitting naked, the aura entices
Having a collage of infinite sayings
She shows her body to all around
There’s writing on her slender back
A rainbow of color infuses her heart
And all I can see is a tattered image
Of what her perfect body used to be
A veil covers her eyes that’s persistent
Her soul is out in the open, exposed
A beauty that’s silenced by no one
The rain comes down all at once
Caressing her nude body pleasantly
Now her masterful sayings make sense
This red head embraces herself lovingly
Finally bringing herself the elusive joy

Rainbow Girl

What a pretty girl...
Walking on the eyes of me
Smiling as the rain comes down
She is my rainbow...
May the sun stay here a while
So I can touch her and smile

In her company
I blow bubbles in the air
And I stare and watch her climb
Down the firmament
As her foot reaches the land
I lay in awe on the sand

Briefly there's a grey
Cloud that's jealous of my love
So he calls a thunderstorm
But I patiently
Cry until the drummers leave
...butterflies sing on my sleeve

Dancing down she comes
Dressed in colors of the world
Waiving at the land and sky
Flirting with my eye
How can I not love her, she
Kisses everything I see

What a pretty girl...
Walking on the eyes of me
Smiling as the rain comes down
She is my rainbow...
May the sun stay here a while
So I can touch her and smile

Dancing in the Rain

I close my eye's and imagine you.
My mind is set free and my heart races.
Your eye's sparkle in the moon light, 
deep and full of life.
Your stong arms embracing our bodies together,
forcing the heat of our passion through wet clothes.

BREATHLESS,
as your sweet smokey kisses take me away.
We sway along through the rain drops,
gliding across the mirror of stars glittering above.
Dancing to the beat of our Heart, 
and the chiming of the rain falling like a curtain around us.

LOOKING into your eye's I can see my life.
FEELING you against me, I am at peace.
TOGETHER at last, I am Free.

Same Rhythm with Nature Frogs

There on the couch she snoozes and lay
Easing her back from a tiresome day, 
Put on music to entice her imaginations
And there in the forest she found herself in deep hallucination...

Then he comes, with a picnic basket on his hand
Blanket, aged wine and a flower which is rare of its kind, 
Laid the blanket on the ground and summon her to come
By his side, be with him as they watch the sunset this time.

Wine tasted their lips as they have the first sip
Adoringly look at each other with love so deep, 
Their hands meet, as he bends for a kiss
Profound happiness is felt they don't wanna miss! 

Yet blessings of rain comes dropping in
They run for shelter, giggling hand in hand, 
Off they haste and find a shelter under a tree
Shiver in coldness, closer than close they ease in glee! 

Frogs croak and dance at nearby pond
Singing merrily they seem have fun, 
At the wetness and coldness the rain brings
Yet coldness draws them naughty as they do the deed! 

Hmn…they look at each other and naughty smiles seen on their lips
She wink at the thought and he knows what it is
They have same thoughts, same lOve, and same lUst
Same wanting to fill their longing deeper than deep they hope to last.

So at same rhythm as the frogs keep on singing
They too felt same rhythm of their deep urges and wanting, 
Letting their body melt at profound heat, oh, so amazing
As they kiss and move and touch with same rhythm! 

But alas! One frog leaps on them, indiscreetly croaking
Hmn…better run then and continue the rhythm
There is a good place waiting
Where damn naughty frogs could not disturb their mating! 

 
Inner Whispers

(Ha ha! Dedicated to my FROG PRINCE! (wink!) T'was fun making this.)

Does the War Ever Really End

A moment stauls...
Somewhere in between
What shall always be... 
Known as my lost and forever hour

Where I wake to sounds of thrashing rains
A clock sits staring, ticking and tocking
My own darkness illuminating lightning
Distant thunder following her in shame

Although, throes of raven blackness
Slumber holds on to the pitch
But, I pass through limbo hallways of surreal
Stumbling forth in directions by my blinded feel itch

Walls of lucid memories like dripping paint 
Begin to lapse deep into the younger years 
And creaking footfalls shatter their echo
Of certian remembered fears 

"Ah" deja vu sounds the alarm even further
Cracks from father’s room, is the ceiling leaking?
Into my little ears I'm more awake
As I hear the faint famaliar tears of weeping

My curiosity ever stronger than before
And innocent eyes through doorways peer
It’s the war again; Mom said he tried...
To leave it all behind, but still it's always there

And the storm's outside, but in a booming violence
Rushes back surreal into the unforgotten killing
The death, its experiences still locked up
Within his mind never free or escaping

A heroes love is his strength
Protecting me from a world with terrible pains
But, somehow I’ve learned to understand
That he needs his son, to calm his troubled angst

And silently I step
Inching slowly towards him
And nestle up within his trembling hands
Tugging upon one sleeve whispering "Dad, oh dad?"

“God has sent me here”
I say directly in his ear
Quieter now “To love you”
My tone gentle to his needs

Wiping away his tears
He whispers back...
“I know”
And picks me up, relieved

And in turn we face the scene
Of a passing storm into silence
As the rain seems alive to notice
Stopping to watch our mends in evanescence

We are somewhat aware we are within God's presence 
Looking to each other with a shrug
And then my dad holds me up
Giving this boy the biggest hug

Beneath the returning quiet 
And the ambience of moonray light
He carries me back to my room
And places me into bed amid the last flash of white

Pulls the blankets up
Knowing this will comfort me
And I’ll never forget the words
He said so effortlessly 

“One day...
You will have a son
Always let him know you love him
And your bond will never end”

Again I wake, this time
To the sounds of an apologetic rain
The lightening has ceased its battle
And the thunder it no longer blames

I unwind the blanket
And uncover and sit
Rubbing the sleep out of my eyes
Awake, on the edge of bed

Was this a dream?
Or a twist of fate reality?
I ponder, running fingers through my hair
And, merely reflect upon it

Then I realize…
I was not alone
Dad is watching, not far away
And I know one day, I'll see him soon, after heaven's gates

Wet memory

Wet memory

A hidden memory breath out deep
Before Queen Elizabeth II I swallow up the sun with my hands
And I don't die from the loves fire
Even when the bite pain asnostalgia impartibly

 
A kiss is absentat the corner of the lips slot
the rain embraces tear of mother who waits
I closed the pain at Shakespeare's house
and I dialogue with Hamlet in Esperanto

 
To the Palace of Queen has noise
A warm hug suffers
Landscape happiness locked in cage of stories
is not heard as the voice of your violin

 
Winter chill and fog seasons here
We didn't saw even after a century
At A5 winter hosts springs in huge
It was said that Da Vinci's Code has not completed

 
Yesterday didn't beat even Big Ben after a wounded autumn
London Eye kisses viewing beyond sacrificial
In English I don´t understand either your calendar time
There is a lack of rain tomany at Buckingham Palace

 
With the heat I love and suffer the verse and untold word
In the the Dunstable frozen tear gives farewell to the silence
I am crouched by the tears and wet to the bone
Re knit sighs of a killed love many years

my rain fairy

My rain fairy came riding on a dark cloud,
White hot flash in tow, rollin thunder clapping loud,
My rain fairy brought blinding rain down every dale,
My rain fairy brought a force 10 gale,
My rain fairy brought a lot of love,
She`s got an iron fist in a velvet glove,
I saw Drops of rain catching the suns glow, 
The day my rain fairy came riding rainbow.
My rain fairy makes me take a bow, 
Makes my future happen now,
My rain fairy won’t let me sail,
My rain fairy brought a bushel of hail,
The rain fairy touches my life in every way,
Making it worthwhile more than words can say,
My rain fairy walks faster than I can run,
I gotta meet her before she hides behind the sun,
I said to her one day,
How I long to be with you my dear, cant you feel my pain,
Can’t you be with me and douse it with your rain, 
But then,
My rain fairy brought a lot of love,
She`s got an iron fist in a velvet glove,
Now she’s gone and I don’t know why, she’s left me here staring at the sky, thinking of the day,
My rain fairy came riding on a dark cloud,
White hot flash in tow, Rollin thunder clapping loud

WET

Cold, dark rain drops are falling on my back,
As I continue to fall on your front,
Receiving the benefits of the hunt,
Under a sky that is completely black.
On a bed of grass, we pile in a stack.
Caught in the moment, we perform this stunt,
Giving and getting an object so blunt.
Feeling the rhythm, we remain on track.
With satisfaction, I make my last call,
Relieving your back of the grass of blades.
Satisfied, we walk away from it all,
Leaving behind the love that we just laid.
On the ground, the rain continues to fall,
Washing away the love that we just made.

Escape These Walls

You Build These Walls To Make a Home
For Yous Both To Live In
And The Day She Left She Dug a Hole..
How You Wished You Never Let Her.
Now You Stand In the Rain Because You finally Realise...

...She Was Your Shelter!

And All You Can Stand To think About
Is the Last Day...

..That You Felt her

But I'll Be Here For You
Because The Day I Built My Walls...

....He Left Me Too..

Months Pass On And You Wake To The Sun
And Oh God How You Wished You Felt It,
And Though The Rain Has Gone
You Still See The Hole She Left Up On Your Ceiling..

But I'll Be Here For You!
Because The Day I Built My Walls...

    


 He Left Me Too

When Angels Cry

The rain pours down wrecking the day you had planned, soaking through your firewood. Time 
and energy spent and wasted with this fall of water from the skies, looking up and imagine the 
angels cry. The rain washes and cleans away the filth and grim, but in the moment it seems to 
be only lost time; the hurt and pain that comes out with the rain, it goes on for days and seems 
it will never go away. You ever try to light a camp fire with wet wood? You keep trying for awhile 
hoping to have the wood catch and reward you with a warm fire, but after awhile you stop trying 
because you realize that not matter what you try its just not going to light. At the crossroads the 
Devil stands with a can of gasoline, waiting to make a deal. For a small price you can have the 
burst of flame you so desperately crave, in that moment you feel whole and complete with the 
warm arms of the fire reaching out to hold you tight. In time no matter how much gas you buy, 
the rain from heaven when angels cry will drown the flame; leaving you with nothing but shame 
that you sold out for a temporary flame. What is that price that is to be paid, so you can feel the 
warmth, but the gas quickly burns away leaving you standing in the crossroads with a price to 
pay. In my life I have learned it’s not the price you want to pay for the short lived flame, just 
hold on and in the new day the rain will go away.

Kiss the Rain

After I woke up this morning, I saw I walked whilst the rain poured down on my head I for sure loved running within each drop I kiss the rain, blessings I held instead The rain flowed down on my body, around Blending with my being all that I am I hold the rain in the palm of my hand There’s so much rain, I do love her, madam She leaves such an imprint onto my hand A feminine form bolstered onto me Signaling a born love of the warm rain Something that I have always loved completely I kiss the rain, as if I’ll never see… Like I’ll never see rain ever again Holding the lovely droplets near my heart It’s the best feeling that has ever been

I Cant Fight Anymore

I can’t fight anymore…
Doesn’t make any sense to carry on this way, with hurtful things being said.  I’m thinking I’m right and your thinking the same, pointing fingers who’s the blame? Who should feel ashamed?  We look into each other’s eyes with lack of understanding.  Emotional demanding it’s a strain to our hearts and our thoughts are not focused.  Clouds grew over head with this hurtful situation.  Rain hits us on the head to smother our tears. When it rain it pours.

Pain so hard to hide sometimes.  Two hearts can’t come together, to improve, to grow. To make what we have better, to agree to disagree, to get pass what we are attempting to destroy.  My feelings are heavy and confused.  The love is there, these times it’s so hard to share when the pain is deep.  Jealously of others with their own goals in mind divide and conquer our world.  Whispers in the air as we stare at each other, eye to eye, pride for pride with bitter pain of lies told.  Stories unfold with vindictive acts in mind and in time love lost.

I can’t fight anymore…tired of the patches fixed to my heart and glue of broken pieces that has scared over time.  Tattooed Bible verses as a reminder. 1 Corinthians 13:4-8 doesn’t talk about hate jealously or vindictive hateful ways…the greatest of all time LOVE.
So how do we compare with the truth of the Word?  This isn’t living my heart was built to forgive, to and for love.  

I just can’t…
I can’t fight anymore the pain won’t let me.  I’ll rather just walk away saving the fight for true love that deserves to be fought for.

A beautiful sound to my ears is hearing the RAIN outside my

Raindrops

Standing by my window,
I smile as I watch the rain pour away
One two three
Black drops in a black endless night
So beautiful this merry song
Standing by my window
Watching the black drops pour away
Away to some unknown destination
And then you pop up
In my smiling mind
And I feel the familiar warmth of you
Slowly creeping up
Enveloping me in a warm loving hug
And I stand by the window
Watching the rain pour away its black drops
One two and three,
Countless memories of you fill up
The void in my heart
The empty space in my arms
And I hug them
Next to the rain
Next to the pouring black drops
Hug those bittersweet, sweet and
Scented memories of you to
My heart
And smile in contentment
One two and three
Away they go
The black black drops
One two and three
Here they come
Rushing, flooding my heart with your warmth
Filling me with a genuine
Tearful happiness
Those wonderful sweet memories
And I move away from the window
Away from the pouring black drops
And embrace the marvelous sight of you
In my mind
In my heart.

The Ribbon - November 24, 2008

Fighting the quickness
I can't shake this sickness
My ribs sore from the lies
I want to cut these ties
I cough them up with phlem
I wish I had not met him
The blood staining the rag
I feel like a miserable hag

Cut these ribbons, they're hurting
These secrets I couldn't stop blurting
The blood dripping down the strips
My hands hanging at my hips
My eyes close and I cry aloud
Wouldn't my mother be proud?

I hate this numb feeling
I feel the cheer peeling
Like a leaf from its tree
I'm broken, can't you see?
I feel the rain falling
I hear its soft calling
Its drops mix with tears
I want to share my fears

Please, be the one to say yes
Take a rag and clean this mess
I need you like you'll never know
You'll never see the pretty bow
The one tied around my neck
No blood on it, not a speck

Nevermind, I can't bare the pain
I've made my decision in vain
I clench the ends of my pretty bow
My crying eyes downcasting slow
I think of your smile, your brown eyes
You'd never wade through all the lies
I'm not worth it, but neither is she
But that's something you'll never see

The ends are tied, the rain stops
I smile and I put away the props
I feel relief as I lift this ugly mask
I set it aside and begin my task
My toes balancing on brittle wood
I'll never be known or understood

I look to the heavens and I see you
I will never know whether it was true
I tremble knowing how I am posed
I bite my lip, naked and exposed
I cover my bow and take my leap
No more will they make me weep
You will never know how I feel
My ribbon snaps and seals the deal

The Rain Will Hide My Tears

The rain will hide my tears,
can't let you see me cry,
don't want you to see me this way,
but it is hard for me to hide the pain.
I thought that you would be the one to dry
away my tears, the rain will hide my tears
when they begin to fall down.
The rain will hide my tears,
can't let you see me cry,
don't want you to see me this way,
the rain will hide my pain.

the world got blur,
so soft I could fall through blankets.

The Red Lantern

She lights her red lantern again today
Which midnight rain had reduced
To flimsy, gross paper.

Her previous lantern
Had blazed too strong, burning down,
Dying a red death:
She now dares not light fire
When sky promises no rain.

Wet lantern laid limp
Set aflame under the rain
Dead love laid unloved.

Don't love as if your map is reality

      A map's a guide to find a world

    Knitted by angels,plain or pearled,

    And though you need a map as guide,

    Keep your own eyes open wide.
   

    I spent a year caught in a map

    Until I found a big enough gap

    I crawled out through this exit slit,

    So here I am,like some half wit.
    

    Words can act like heroin,

    You live so high ,where I have been.

    But onto earth I gladly fall.

    The air, the sun, the rain is all.

    
    My senses are my lovers long-

    My ears,my eyes,my skin my tongue.

    The winds caress my naked flesh,

    To dwell on earth is all I wish.
    

    I'll live with mice and birds and plants,

    I'll share my food with miscreants

    I'll keep my words inside a tin;

    And only, now and then,go in.

    
    I'll live with cats and spiders three.

    And like a wild flower grow quite free.

    I' ll give my words to those who hear,

    And eventually I'll disappear

    
    Earth to earth then ash to ash

    When soaked with rain I shall disperse.

    My atoms wing like butterflies,

    And to the Flower I'll fly,disguised.

To discover you

?I wanted to discover the world through your body, to be in adventure, to know the truth, about rain, wind, rainbow, and morning breeze, but I never touched you, hugged you, smell your neck, and breath through your breath, but today, when it was raining outside, I figured that rain is not your sadness, wind is not your madness, rainbow is not your smile, and breeze is not breathing through your breath, rain is tears of joy that falls from sky when you wink, wind is when world want to smell like you it come and touch you, rainbow is sort thanking after your wink to the sky it bow his hade, and breeze I can?t figure it until I see you and smell your neck?..?

My Love For You

My love for you is like cool slow rain from an April sky with gentle droplets whispering of love as they kiss your face My love for you is like gentle sea breezes on a hot summer's noon bringing healing's touch from some far away land to soothe the weary soul My love for you is like the dawning sun chasing away the darkness with golden sunbeams that radiate with hope of a better day My love for you is like all these things and more for even if the rain ceases to fall and the breeze forgets to blow and the sun shines no more my love for you will always be there

Sometimes I Like To Pretend Things Never Came To A End

Sometimes I like to pretend, things never came to a end. But over time, our love became a crime. I didn't know what we had, would ever end so bad. But then I knew things weren't right, when we started to fight. Now I walk down memory lane all the time, the pain is worst then committing a crime. We only caused eachother pain, but we were eachothers maine. I thought things would be alright, but I cried alot that night. I don't want things to change, without you my life is strange. You said you wanted me so much it started to hurt that you couldn't wait, now im just another person you hate. When you said you didn't care, I knew the person I loved was no longer there. You aren't the same, the new you is lame. We both fell, now it's hell. You use to always be here for me, like family. But now your nowhere in sight, things aren't right. Empty is all that I can feel, I still can't believe this is real. I didn't mean to let you get away, I didn't know what to say. Am i with the right guy, or am i telling myself a lie. I was afraid to loose what we had, but to you that choice was bad.

HUGGING TENDERLY

It's one o'clock in the noon and a hasty couple snuggling  
under an orange umbrella walks
on a glossy lane of the misty park deserted by folks...
as soft, transparent and warm
raindrops keep on pelting,
but these happy lovers seem worry-free,
not trying try to outrun the approaching storm!
We, too, have walked under
a big umbrella hugging tenderly,
sharing thoughts and breathing perfumed air!



Love feelings can be intense under
an umbrella made for two having fun;
no, they don't seem to quiver
as in the freezing November rain without sun!
Yes, they enjoy a long walk that will take them home...
while staring down at the puddles that foam;
and if the northern wind blew,
they would lose it to the clouds that are somewhat blue!

Natures Dream

        I walk through the field of green 
  	My feet are bare and the grass squishes underneath me 
	The rain is falling like little pebbles soaking me in beauty 
 	I breathe in deep letting its sweet scent fill my nose 
	Suddenly my feet are moving in a circle 
	I am dancing, dancing with love and hope 
	Love for the rain and its beauty 
	Hoping this moment will last a lifetime 

	 My summer dress flowing in the wind 
	Until it’s sprinkled with tears from heaven 
	I can’t imagine anything greater than this
	I have fallen in love with this day 
	This moment means only the world to me
	The burning yellow sun peaks out of the clouds
	Shinning down on me with its warmth  
	The drops ping against my face leaving a stream 
	 
	I am still dancing in a circle now waving my arms in the air
	The song of nature sings to me in the wind 
	It sounds like a dozen wooden flutes  
	The tune is sweet so sweet I get swept away in it
	The grass is so green like emeralds from God 
	I fall from dancing and roll down the grass 
	The whole time I am laughing and it sounds as if the butterflies are too 
	My pretty white dress is now green 
	 
	Butterflies dozens of them are flying around me 
	They surround me in their array of magical colors 
	They start to hum to the song of nature sung by the wind 
	It seems as if this tune is from heaven 
	I start to hum along to this wonderful tune it seems so familiar 
	I close my eyes and start to dance all over 
	Letting nature take me away 
	Birds come and tweet along to the song 
	I don’t think I just do, I go along with the song

	Finally the sun peaks all the way out 
	I can see it warming up the earth with its warm rays 
	The rain is still coming down just sprinkling over 
	I can see ahead a field of daises beautiful white daises 
	I run as fast as I can to the daises the butterflies and birds follow 
	They are soft like silk, their smell fills my nose 
	I close my eyes and run through the endless field of daises 
	I lay down and watch the fluffy white clouds pass overhead 
	The sun shinning as bright as ever over the clouds and sky

	
         The sky is baby blue with a little purple 
         I have never seen a sky so wondrous 
         It looks so full of possibilities and magic
         As I lay there I hear the daises moving in the wind 
         To the song of nature once again 
         This I know is beauty at its best 
         I fall asleep to the tune and awake in clouds 
         I am home

Waiting for the Rain

After the door shuts and the footsteps die,
I rehearse the words I wanted to say.
I tumble them around and around in my mind.
Juggle them. Rewrite them to perfection.
But I won't see you again.

Perhaps it is better this way.

Those nights we spent entwined in moonlit silk,
our hearts beating wildly, kisses so soft
a mere feather could have tasted my lips,
how could such passion be sustained?
Surely we would have burnt out
like two candles beckoned by one flame.

And those days by the beach,
when you playfully teased the ocean,
your skirt lifted high,
the waves bathing your thighs in sea foam,
like the bubbles from your nightly baths.
I still want to lick the saltiness away,
but we've both been battered and beaten
against the shore to the point of loneliness.

We used to be like rain drops,
splashing into the same pool,
spreading ourselves out to the world.
We explored the City in all it's splendor,
gathering other rain drops as we went along.
We were fluid and irresistible - two crazy gals.
But attractions cannot last during droughts.

Your highs became lows, crashes so hard,
the forceful blows struck even me.
I would have shared your pain,
sat in vigil until the rain began again.
I watched your beauty fade into a grey mass,
thunder clouds so fierce I was sure to get wet.
But you couldn't wait it out,
your tears dried upon your ashen face.
I didn't want us to end like this,
our love pounded into the ground.

As the door shuts and the footsteps die,
rain beats against the window panes,
begging to be let in.

Drum Beat

Boom boom tap.
Boom boom tap.
Boom boom tap.
Holy. Freaking. Crap.

Here come the snare drums,
With the bass drums,
And the cymbals,
The band follows.

I have a secret.
Everyone knows it.
And I don't know about,
If I can contain this shout.

And I don't know,
If I can take it anymore.

I got that drum beat.
Not just in my feet,
But in my heart.
But it's just too hard.
This girl's got her drum beat.
She can take the heat.
But when it comes to love,
She's... Down to drugs.
But not those kind where,
You can feel fear.
It's already there.

Tap tap tap.
Boom-de-tap-tap.
The marching band's coming.
You better start moving.

They don't stop.
All of them just stomp- stomp- stooooomp.


I got that drum beat.
Not just in my feet,
But in my heart.
But it's just too hard.
This girl's got her drum beat.
She can take the heat.
But when it comes to love,
She's... Down to drugs.
But not those kind where,
You can feel fear.
It's already there.

This song probably makes,
No sense.
But there's really no,
Deep meaning.

These are the facts...
Literally everyone goes,
Crap, crap, crap.

I got that drum beat.
Not just in my feet,
But in my heart.
But it's just too hard.
This girl's got her drum beat.
She can take the heat.
But when it comes to love,
She's... Down to drugs.
But not those kind where,
You can feel fear.
It's already there.

Zoom zoom zoom.
Zoom te zoom zoom.
My heart goes boom boom.
But you just see it through.
Like it's a clear,
Drum beat.

The Sieve of Time



The Sieve of Time



Cast ashore,
along the banks of time,

whirling through the passing years,
clinging to my futile scribbles set in rhyme,


Cast ashore,
thrust into an unrehearsed pantomime,

clenching slivers of joy as weariness descends,
lulled into a peaceful slumber exhilaratingly sublime.


Cast ashore,
hazily adrift, a dandelion seed on the wings of time,

trapped in the sieve of spiralling memories,
caught between pristine bliss, and reeking slime.


Cast ashore,
flung aside for no discernible crime,

my human heart thuds with elusive hope,
though battered, bruised, and covered in grime,

I stagger ashore, 

alone,

embracing each moment of detached, oblivious time.

Don't You See Me?

It starts out slow, just a few drops, drip…drip… and then it lets go, as if the flood
gates opened, it starts to flow.
Gushing now, nowhere to go, I am so exposed!
Abandoned out here all alone.
Am I dead? I feel so low, do you see me?
This can’t be so, don’t you see me?
I am standing in the rain soaked from head to toe.
Screaming out! 
I see you there looking right through me!
Where should I go…home? Where is home? I am stranded here!
I look up in the night sky searching for a reason why!
I swear if you look hard enough you can see inside.
Drip…drip… It’s pouring now!
I am afraid!
Is this it?
Do I lay down now?
I see you, don’t you see me?
I am exposed this is me!
Raw as I can be!
Am I dead?
Or are you?
This rain you feel, these drops that are falling, it is my pain rushing down, down hitting
the ground!
Smashing into nothing!
Crashing into nothing!
Being felt by no one, I see you but you don’t see me.
The rain that is falling are my tears calling out to you, hear me please!
These drops that are falling are what aches inside of me.
This is the storm that you have created!
The thunder and lightning are the intervals that I breathe, in the way it sneaks in a
rumble and than a crash!
That is me; do you see me at last?
No I am not dead, this hurt I feel, these tears that are falling it is what’s inside of me. 
I am not ashamed!
You have broken who I thought I was!
As I stand here alone and feel the tears stream down my face, I know now you don’t see me
but I am sure you feel the fall of the rain.

Sweet Heaven

Sweet rain from dear heaven 
are you drowning me 
with your tears
to quench the flames 
burning my soul

sweet wind from dear heaven
are you swaying me
with your kisses
to join my loneliness
drowning my heart

sweet thunder from dear heaven
are you blaming me
with your roars
to curse my sadness
devouring my flesh

sweet lighting from dear heaven
are you showing me
with your bolts
to end my darkness
blinding my sight

sweet heaven for now you can rest
as your love has reached me

Distant African Nights

Those Distant African Nights...


1.


The shadows swayed in your candlelit room,

a cool breeze teasing your bare back,


streaks of lightning forked in the Johannesburg night,

as my hands stroked your hair,

kissing your soft mouth,

holding you,

ever so tight.



2.


You whispered that you loved me,

and I kept silent,


the rain fell, 
shadows danced,
thunder rolled,

the breeze teased your naked back,

you whispered that you loved me,
as my lips found yours,

the rain washed over our tender nights,


lightning and candlelight,

etching poems on your burnished skin,


yet,

a fear gnawed at me,

deep within.



3.


We parted ways,
and you could never forgive me, you said,


now, after numberless thunderstorms,

the rain that falls,


echo the countless tears that I have shed.



4.


You are long gone,

far away,

happy, I pray,


yet the memories persist,

those precious moments shall never, 
ever,

like the Jo'burg rains,
trickle away,

and I wish you well,
for loving me as you did,

for it was I who was not worthy,


then,


and it is I who is not worthy,


now...



5.


You were always true,


it was I who always,

always,

refused to,


to give myself,


completely to you.

Crimson Fall

Drips down my head
Looking at the sky
Bright and red

Slow and just still
Here waiting
And so I will

Falling on the asphalt
Drip, drip, drip
Slowly tearing my heart

Mother nature
I'm torn and crying
Don't leave me asunder

Song of the Loner

It’s lonely a cold night of rain
And I compose me a piece
From the pattering of drops
On the steel roof
With claps of thunderbolt
And swish of the wind

Of somebody next door who
Left somebody alone song!

The tap of my feet accord 
With the crack of my teeth
When there’s no one beside 
To drown my heart away
 A sonorous serenade
I croon into allegretto 
A mellifluous drone in heart
So sad and drear
 
Of somebody next door who
Left somebody alone song!

Chime me you night crickets
And buzzing beetle
A piece in the cold night rain 
To hype the heartbeat tempo
To wash the slumbering eyes
And feel forlorn at home
From the wailing pine
In the rush of wind
In that dark cold night rain

Of somebody next door who
Left somebody alone song!

Kiss the rain

Hello, darling come right in
I want to feel you on skin
Hold me, do not let me go
I hide feelings that you don’t know
Do you miss me, my sweet love?
My little angel from above
I daydream of you repeatedly
But do you ever think of me?
I need to see your lovely face
Your smile that sent me up to space
I crave the sound of your sweet voice
As I remember when you made me rejoice
I’m going crazy day by day
The more that you are far away
I kiss the rain in thought of you
My neighbors think I’m crazy too
All I beg is that you don’t forget
Together until death; Romeo and Juliet
My mind’s shutting down, my heart’s getting cold
There is nothing left to hold
So I kiss the rain to feel your touch
As I remember that sweet rush
Only dark clouds since you have gone
Raindrops falling one by one
I feel them pressing on my lips
I feel them sliding on my hips
And I imagine you right next to me
Here to stay for eternity

LIKE A RAINBOW

People say that rainbows are beautiful
To see one is an experience so wonderful
Gives you a feeling that’s so soulful
Blessing from heaven that is bountiful
 
But you can’t have rainbows without rain
Just like the saying no gain without pain
In stormy times faith you should maintain
In the end sunshine you would surely regain
 
Look forward to the coming of the sun
The rainbow will come when the rain is done
Bringing you hope and filling life with fun
Before you know it the battle had been won
 
Be strong in your faith dear friend
The storm will eventually come to an end
In the meantime warm love to you we send
A love that’s true and friendship without end
 
Together we‘ll wait for the rainbow
With it’s beauty the whole sky will glow
Even through the rain our hearts will know
That hope and love should always flow

Farewell in the Rain

Farewell in the Rain

rain drips through the trees
kissing soft eyebrows and skin
overflowing eyes

tongue steals a rain drop

more tears rain drops fall

A Nightmare

If anything could ever be more perfect than what was before my eyes at that time, I'd have to see it to 
believe it.

Her eyes glittered like diamonds in the morning sun. It was truly a sight of proportions beyond any normal 
human's thoughts. She stepped toward me with the utmost grace and delicacy, along the rugged concrete in 
a beautiful, shimmering black dress that came down to her ankles and some expensive looking shoes. I 
wasn't sure why she was dressed so glamorously, but nevertheless, she was and it was gorgeous. 

When she approached me, I couldn't even say a word before her warmth embraced me. I never wanted to 
let go. It was a feeling of pure bliss. The one I loved and I felt that love returned to me, as I siphoned it 
through my soul.

A drop of rain caught my attention, as I let go I proceeded to pull a compact umbrella out of my sweater 
pocket. The rain grew heavier, and as it did i managed to get my umbrella to open to shield her from the 
dark downpour. 

It became darker and darker as more and more clouds gathered up and blocked out the sun. The rain 
became torrential, the winds grew. A beautiful day turned into a storm as quick as the lightning that struck 
above us.

We walked toward a bus stop, to go somewhere; I wasn't entirely sure where we were headed, my body 
seemed to move uncontrollably. But as I walked, I noticed her moving farther and farther away. She had 
stopped dead in the middle of the sidewalk.

Blood gathered in pools on the ground, meshing in with the rain, dripping off her back. The dress was torn 
and the shoes were gone. She fell to her knees and placed her face in her hands.

I ran to her. I couldn't tell if I was crying or if the rain was just gathering on my face. I touched her back, and 
there was nothing, nothing but a gaping wound, a gash that was bleeding profusely. I tried to clear her hands 
away from her face, but they wouldn't move. I reached once again for her hands, and before they could even 
get halfway, a shriek of decibels unknown escaped her lips; a siren's scream it seemed, it deafened me and 
sent me flying though the night sky.

The love of my life.

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

The Pluviophile

For months, I waited to embrace her,
And then she came,
I cuddled her with no shame,
Standing naked under her presence,
Like the broken door of heavens,
She hugged me with impeccable love,
Smiled and presented a shove,
I was lost in her million eyes,
And then I begun making love with her...
Sucking her lips under her,
I opened my eyes and realized,
That every word she said, she lied,
I dint lie the only person who kissed, cuddled and made love to her...
Every person under her, she loved,
I crawled back into my abode,
Slashed my vein, and showed,
The love for her, as my blood mixed in her tears,
She wept, and there, forever, I slept.

Summer's coming

Some days the Spring is cold and grey
And drizzling rain is no surprise.
It seems that nature's lost her way
But soon the Summer sun must rise.
        While rain washed blooms can find no bees
        A worm is still a blackbird's prize.
        The sparrows fuss and skulk in trees
        But soon the Summer sun must rise.
And what of you my nature's child,
Will I find love inside your eyes?
I love to watch you running wild
But soon the Summer sun must rise.
        Some days the Spring is cold and grey
        But soon the Summer sun must rise.

Jill Scott

"Love rain down on me..."
she bellows sweetly
I drink her soul through
the sounds
Letting me into her universe
dripping with love, food, imagery
a beautiful symphony of words
"Slowly, surely, I walked away from..."
the thought of turning my  cd off
Jazz seeping through my pores 
melting me like chocolate in hand
'I understand what you sayin' girl!!!'
Moving feet with every beat
"Love rain down on me..."


Author's Note: Some of the words in this piece are from actual songs. Jill Scott 
has been a tremendous influence in my poetry. Her music and words are 
constant companions. Much respect to her.

A Love Thought

The rain fall softly apon the roof.
The drops you hear hitting as they fall far out the sky.
My thoughts of you are there also.
As I daydream of a love of far.
It is not near as you are not in my arms to hold.
But somewhere far that I can not touch your heart.
Touch that of your skin and feel it beat.
As ours thump in one accord I hear the sound of your voice call out for love.
That of a man her heart desires to feel his touch.
As his is to be near and love forever,even in darkness.
But there I stare into a light of bright that in my heart you exsist.
That in my life I have found something just as beautiful as the world.
As I have found you and the beauty you are.
That you make my heart go pitty,patter with wild thoughts of you.
But more important,they are thoughts of  you.
And wishing you was here as the rain dance above my head.
Enjoying each moment you stole of my heart.
That I would love you in many ways and not just in sexual way.
But all the way with my heart I would love thee.

its raining tonight

Come hold my hand, 
Its raining outside, we should wet our pride 
Come hold these hands, 
I might ask you something regarding love 
Come take these fingers, 
Its raining outside, this is the most romantic moment of our life 
Did you ever picture? I would request . . . . . . . 
Some fact proposing love in this tiring night 
Just put behind what’ll happen tomorrow 
Lets get dampen in this lovely rainy night 
I am not asking you to come outside with you 
I am hauling you with my muscular hands on the rain outside 
Though I knew you wouldn’t deny, but didn’t make blissful? 
I am your weakness, touching your tempting body 
Like this rain tonight 
Dance with me but there is no music 
However the rain is singing to make a amorous night 
Hey! Did you see its raining tonight

Making Love Over the Rain

Making Love Over the Rain

Have you ever made love on the beach in the sand?
Your mind is clear as white doves 
fly above and the tides touch land
The melody is sweet
as your bodies stay in sync…
Making love over the rain 
on this white sandy beach
Hear the rain coming down 
as it hits the board walk;
No people in sight on this warm summer night 
so the temptations are great…
making love over the rain 
As your lips inter-lock so sweet
like the taste of great wine 
Put a strawberry in the middle
Top it off, so divine
like you’re floating on cloud nine 
The water dances off your bodies
to calm the fire down
The intensity is intriguing 
as you’re breathing to the tempo 
of the waves splashing
Up over your bodies
And this making love over the rain
has never been this exotic
Imaginations flowing
Daydreaming so intensely 
Romanticizing the motions
of making love by this ocean
as we reach extreme inclinations
we can storm any weather 
Cause’ we’re strong as the wind 
as our bodies connect
like a parrot’s colorful feathers.

Within Me


Within Me

Flowing through the rivulets of my everyday thoughts,
memories of you surface, gasping for air, breathing in,
permeating, absorbed by the pores of my ageing skin.

Famished, greedily gulping mouthfuls of fractured life,
awash in distant yesteryear, when your feathery kisses,
banished the vacuum, dispelling my anguish and strife.

You are eternally carved, and embroidered into my soul,
I wash ashore, smashing against the boulders of the now,
seeking solace, begging for absolution with my empty bowl.

The book of fate is sealed shut, the tea-leaves have been read,
nothing remains within me, the burden of smiling has been shed.

Now I am stranded, between dreams and the empty years ahead,
searching for forgiveness, in the miles I have yet to wearily tread.

When It Rains

I think of you when it rains
The rain tells me where you are
You can't work and you can't drive
Bring on the rain, it makes me smile
We were together for only a while
But still, hearing the rain makes me smile
I'm happy for the time we had
I'm glad the end wasn't bad
It's been a while since we've talked
Sometimes I see you when I walk
Here comes the rain
I think of you when it rains
Happy thoughts that make me smile
So, let it rain for just a while

Rain Drop

It is that of the rain to which falls.
That of a winter wind to which blows.
It is of the rain drop to which started this day.
Not that of a sun shine but that of a doom day.
It is of something wet as it is a mist from that to have formed.
That of water from the ground to which that cloud had form.
There I lay, with a thought of you this day.
As the rain beat lightly on the roof top it runs this day.
You would think that far up, the rain drops would hit harder.
But it’s there with gentleness to which God watches its fall.
As the leaves turn color and it is of a winter fall.
It’s there; I’m curled in the sheets.
Wishing you was at my needs.
As it is with my heart to which reins for you.
That it’s there to which my heart sweats for you.
Touches of gentle kindness as you bring that of warmth about.
It’s there the drops fall as it moistens the ground.
A rein out from a howl inside, that with a growl for love.
It’s there I want to experience drops with you.
Not of cold rain but that of a heat of passion with an explode.
That we rain in which is a sweat of wetness.
As we would take the day off and enjoy that of the rain he gave.
And make it that not of a rainy day but that of love droplets of spray.

Kiss in the Rain

Kiss me in the rain like nobody is looking,
Take my breath away,
Beg you lay your lips on mine,
I dream it every day.

The moment where our hearts combine,
That point that we can say,
We never want to leave (and that)
We always want to stay.

And so the rain falls pure and true,
It's bursting on our skin,
That day that you look in my eyes,
Say you're here till the end.

Our feelings pour down with the rain,
We're soaked in our own love,
But our rain, see, will never stop,
It falls down from above

She

She

She smiled, gently,
her warmth infusing me,
with a serene stillness of time.

She settled, slowly,
in my waking thoughts,
a soothing balm of simple joy.

She remains, scribbled,
on the walls of my fractured heart,
memories of happiness that once breathed...

             FIRST

When love first was new
When I first heard love’s bell
When the whipping wind first blew
That’s when the rain first fell

When love poems were first penned
When she first neared
Alas the rain didn’t end
And the clouds never cleared

When laughter was shrill
When smiles never faded
When love first became nil
Since silence invaded

When afternoons first met the moon
When our song seemed so splendidly right
When secrets soured a temptress’ tune
When a silken bow bedecked day bowed to an empty night

When love first felt free
When doves first took to fly
When dreams first couldn’t be
When her first hello became her final goodbye

Rain and Pain

Like rain drops beating 
Against the window pain
My heart beats in rhythm 
Against my bosom,
When your eyes 
Holds me from the border. 

Like a rain drop 
Passing down the pane
With the last shower,
Like a dying flower
My excitement also 
Drains away with your departure!!

Mora Piya Ghar Aaya - My Beloved Has Returned Home

Mora Piya Ghar Aaya (My Beloved Has Returned Home)

Autumn:


the leaves fell, as you left, a bleak chill wafting across the barren space within my being,
you left, taking your smile and mine,
my smile rests with you still, leaving a void impossible to fill.


Winter:

pangs of longing consumed me, my only company in the frigid nights,
my tears remain frozen, within,
unable to fall from my broken eyes, as I searched the depths of the cold, harsh skies.


Spring:

birds returned home, though you did not, and I felt soothing rebirth all around,
memories of you began blazing, their embers stoked,
and at last the tears rolled, like ink on this blank notebook, my whole being pined for you, my very self in anguish silently shook.


Summer:

alive I felt again, the promise of the coming cooling rain, easing the heat of desire,
yet the furnace slowly raged inside, your absence tearing into me, shattering my nights, my longing for you soaring unfettered across the skies,
dancing on clouds, blissfully free,


Monsoons:

heaven itself opened, the deluge an unending dream,
rain falling all around, mingling with my flowing tears,
and then I saw you, you returned, and I embraced you, never wishing to let you go,
and though I may wear the mask of the clown,
if you were to leave again,
my very soul, would quietly slip away, and in the monsoon rains, I would gratefully drown.

              tree while the rustling of the trees
            shimmer like crystals on the leaves.

Leather Jacket

It was the eve of January 1st
We were taking our usual walk,
The temperature was dropping but we didn't pay heed
Amidst our forever lovely talk.

Then in a matter of time it grew extremely cold
Uncontrollably, my teeth began to chatter.
 He took off his leather jacket and put it on my shoulders
Well, in an instant that solved the matter!

I felt great warmth inside me,
Was as excited as winning a prize;
Happiness and love rushed through my veins,
Wrapped in a jacket twice my size.

I was not able to hide my feelings anymore,
Still I was unsure if he loved me too or not,
I stood still and decided to find out once in for all
But pouring rain suddenly cut the thought.

I started to run for shelter but stopped,
When I heard him shout, “I love you”
Clutched the jacket tight as I raced back to him
This was a surely a dream come true.

Speechless, I nodded smiling,
And tiptoed till my nose touched his
Then pulled the jacket over our heads
So that the rain wouldn't disturb our kiss.

For Gemma

I work up today in Erith 
As the rain was coming down 
My baby she was still sleeping 
I tried not to make a sound

I turned to her and whispered
“Babe I love you so”
“I love you more than ever “
“More than you could ever know”

And as the rain was falling 
You woke, looked at me and smiled
You told me that you loved me 
And you would never let me go 

So now its 12 weeks later 
And she’s still holding my hand 
Wiping my tears away 
And keeping me from harm 

So darling to you this I swear 
I will never do you harm 
And hold you close to my heart
To always keep you safe and sound 

I love you Gemma x

Ballet In The Sky

The whole air is dancing-
     Ravenous thunder rumbles
        Lighting curls her jagged bolts
          flashing like gold through amythyst, sapphire skies

I'll not allow your image to spoil my view
   With you-rain would cry it's droplets 
          as it mumbled whispers to my haunted heart
               Oft' times-rolling clouds rumbled their voices in my soul

                                                                 *~*

Now, I dance in scarlet flames that spark across the heavens
   gliding thru turquoise skies with copious clouds... 
       that delicately clothe my body             
           pirouetting gracefully ...
               to the peaceful harmonic rhythm of rolling thunder

My flesh no longer aches for your barren touch
   I shall not desire your hand opon my beautiful rain drenched skin
       whetted now with golden silken tears

My memory quickens...
      I no longer remember your face or hunger for your sterile love
         I'll not dance to your chaotic rhythm

Nature baited me with her sweet breath
     Embraced me in her loving arms-
         singing her gentle rain of tears

You...
    baited me with your hook of selfish love

My heart now dances with another
     One who bathes my soul in fertile soil
         He feeds me with his hungry, selfless love...

You...
   fed me worms with your stingy heart

Port of Call

Port of Call


Barefoot on a talcum beach,

alone, not lonely,

with the breath of the ocean a caressing balm,
soothing pained memories away,
to the swaying of a solitary palm.


Barefoot on a talcum beach,

alone, not lonely,

feeling the brushing away of all past turmoil,
on a quest for solace, ever so hard to find,
yet comforted by the crashing of the waves,
as the tide cleanses all pain,
and leaves despair far, far behind.


Barefoot on a talcum beach,

alone, not lonely,

drenched in a sea-breeze of mist,
that hushes the ache of bygone moons,
tasting the salty tang on my lips,
as the burnished sun,
over the distant horizon,
swoons,

and dips.


Barefoot on a talcum beach,

alone, not lonely,

searching, ever searching,
for a slice of solitude,
as memory bids a final adieu,
reaching under the sea so vast,
and seeking comfort in the depths,
while embracing,
the tomorrows to come,
wishing that they be true.


Barefoot on a talcum beach,

alone, not lonely,

seeing my truths drown,
as they slip beneath the turquoise waters,

feeling my heart ablaze,
with a passion that rarely falters.


Barefoot on a talcum beach,

alone, not lonely,

yet knowing that I am home at long last,
wishing the waves would wash away,
the defences that once stood,
like an impregnable wall.


Barefoot on a talcum beach,

alone, not lonely,

I have found, at long last,

my final port of call.

The Minister's Son

Once in a place on a top of a hill
Lies an oak tree the stood there still
Under that is a boy I know in pain
All wet because of his tears and the rain.

He swears he’ll never fall in love again
No more heartache that happened back then
But I do hope that he is wrong
Cause my heart screams we both belong.

He does not know I know the things he loves
From what he hates and what he wants to have
I know his favorite food, number, and song
He does not know I had him memorized for so long.

He loves things that the color is blue
He loves to tease me but never will argue
He loves to play basketball once a week or twice
He loves to eat ham soaked in vinegar and rice.

He loves places that are peaceful and quiet
He wants things to work out like what he had set
He is quiet and does not talk a lot
He wears v-neckline shirts that make him look so hot.

Nobody else knows what he does best
Playing guitar is his greatest asset
I know his hometown, where he came from
And I love it when he plays the drums.

Yes that guy is the one I love
He’s the one that I have been dreaming of
He’s my life, my love and no other than
The man in black the minister’s son.

Saturday Rain in Johannesburg

Saturday Rain in Johannesburg…


…With sighs of torrential passion,
the heavens shower teardrops,

weeping with me,
as memories of you come cascading back,

skin on skin, ablaze,
moist kisses, fiery,
gentle whispers of undying love, murmured,

in another life, another time,

far removed from my present, a desolate state of despair,
wallowing in the grime.

…

The rain keeps falling,
each teardrop stinging my face,

tasting the salt on my lips,

I wonder, do you still remember the caresses of my fingertips,

between breathy confessions, and vows of eternal love,

before you left me, stranded on an island of solitude,

wounded as a wingless dove,

bereft of life,
stripped of all traces of fortitude

Healing Rain

The rain fell upon me
It revealed my destiny
My pain was washed away
My heart would never again sway
Yet why do I feel the way I do?
Why do I search for something new?

At night, my heart weighs me down
Endless stars I try to count
It feels like I have lost my aim
The only thing left with me is my name

I gently close my eyelids once again
I searched for the rain that once washed away my pain
It had now dried up
Leaving me hurting, with none to fill my cup
I longed for restoration
But sunk deeper into desperation

It felt like a storm inside my head
Before me, both faith and fear were laid
Was there a choice for me?
Would my eyes be able to see?
I saw myself falling
My knees got weak and I felt like crawling

I searched for an open door
A door that would end my heart's war
My lips could utter no more
My spirit would not soar
I shut my eyes tightly and kept my pace
As darkness crept in, I saw myself in another phase

There was a bright light shining
A voice of hope within me whispering
I found a way
My burdens, I had to lay
The rain washed away all my pain
And there I saw my destiny
A destiny of hope and eternity

I imagined a rain

It was a sunny day, half year gone, 
the sky cloudless, the wind dry. 
I had to imagine a rain, It had to be done.
The magic dyed the sky with gray
and made tears flow from a happy cry, 
on the timber ladder, we seemed to pray,
but we only had kisses to share. 

Who left the pages open, the tale untold?
The last words we already know, 
they will be the same as the years unfold 
layers of dust and cobwebs with his swings, 
even if the wood’s trees cease to grow
and mute the music Philomel sings,
Fatal words those words are. 

When I was a boy, too young to love
I loved you already under the rain,
Sleeping the dreamless sleep in a grove 
with your arms wrapping my chest, 
Or thirty three years old in a boundless plain 
of fountains of scented camphor and lasting rest,
When we did as we did, were you aware?

Rusted Tears

The tin man stood out in the rain and felt each inch of sorrow;
his broken heart beyond repair with no hope for tomorrow.

Now all that's left to him is rust and solitary grief
when his love left for higher ground and stole off like a thief.

Beyond the things he knows as truth are those that make him weep;
a rusted heart and broken spirit are all he's left to keep.

The tin man felt each drop of rain as he whispered good-bye
and from the depths a solitary tear fell from his eye.

Love of my life (2)

The love of my life is like 
The color in my eyes,
The words i utter,
She is cool and tender 
The representative of my 
Mother.

The love of my life 
Is like blood in my veins 
When she is angry or absent,
I become soft as rain  water.
Like magnet clinging to her is where i love to be,
To sing for her loves pleasant melodies
Like remedies of broken promises.

The love my life is like the rain to my soul,
Making me soft like soil and tall
Like a flourishing tree.
She is ever to install, the happiness over all
On the table of romance that
Can't be hiding even from far distance,
For instance, if she runs away from me,
I shall be down like a falling star....
Ever to remember, the first encounter.
We shall not be put asunder 
For she is the symbol of a true lover.

Doubt Clouds My Mind

I'm standing outside!
As rain droplets fall upon me while I wonder about you...

Now as I walk around in the cold
With no umbrella on me...
I wonder what exactly you're doing right now
But then I get overvome with doubt
And beat myself around...
Thinking why I should even continue onward with you

So I continue to stand out in the rain but crying
Screaming out loud! I don't think that I can go on
But even if I really wanted to break up with you
I just can't! For deep within my heart
I still love you just the same...

Now as I ponder the situation
It rains much harder...
And it justifies the doubt that I'm feeling now
I don't think that we're meant
To stay together...
Because I'm a coward and I can't go on with you

As it continues to rain down upon me, I'm crying
Crying out loud! You don't need me, go elsewhere
I'm not good enough for you so go find someone else
So leave me! It seems that I can't
Even tell you that to your face...

I realize that I'm acting too immature
But I can't seem to follow my heart
Maybe because I'm too scared...

So I continue to stand out in the rain but crying
Screaming out loud! I don't think that I can go on
But even if I really wanted to break up with you
I just can't! For deep within my heart
I still love you just the same...
I continue to stand out in the rain yet still crying
Screaming out loud! Why did I even choose you?
No matter how I may doubt and push you away from me
I can't seem to! Because I'd be lying
To myself for I love you...

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

tears in the rain

Rain 
the best thing about the rain is that no one can see my tears 
in the rain you can hide your fears, 
in the rain I can hide from my peers,
the best thing about rain is I have a excuse for not going out,
in the rain no one can see me in doubt,
in the rain i can pout 
the best thing about rain is no one can hear my cries 
in the rain I can hide my lies 
in the rain I cant see your eyes 
the best thing  about rain is people don't call
in the rain no one can see you crawl 
in the rain no one can see you fall 
the best thing about the rain is it reminds me of you 
standing in the rain I wish I knew,
standing in the rain I wish it wasn’t true

A Year Without Rain

A dark sky, a low growl,
A flash of light, a haunted howl.

A chilling wind, an insidious fear,
From the dark falls heaven's cold tears.

A love sleeping dormant inside,
A heart that waited, a heart that cried.

A blood moon, hidden by the dark,
A fall of life, for a land so stark.

A year without rain, a land cursed,
A spell broken, a quenched thirst.

A Tender Moment At The Supermarket

Sitting there watching them
they had no idea
they were such an inspiration 
so comfortable with eachother.

He, at least 85
she, about the same.
From my car I could see 
the way he worried about her
as he pulled his car up to the door
so she wouldn't get wet.
He tenderly watched 
while she tucked her hair 
under her clear rain bonnet.

The rain was barely a trickle
but it was a cold rain
and he wouldn't have her
catching a chill.
She waited 
just inside the door
while he parked the car
a sky blue 1976 Bonneville.
They probably bought it
brand new.

His steps were slow
and purposeful.
I could tell he hurt
but was trying to still
be the ''protector'' 
of his beautiful bride.

They walked into the store
arm in arm
while I sat for a few more minutes
alone in my car
listening to the whish-whish
of my wipers.

There is a girl walking under the rain

There is a girl walking under the rain.
It is cold, It is windy, she whirls fast.
She falls and laughs, then whirls again.
How long the rain will last?
 
I knock twice on the hazy window glass.
She jumps and runs, she hears nothing,
White shoes covered by a mucky mass.
Can she sit in the porch’s swing?
 
I only hear the raindrops on the roof.
Yet she sings, She dances, she is odd,
If I join outside, I can follow, I can woof.
Is the rain a bless from God?
 
I wish I could leave the door open,
She will peak and giggle and stay away
Picking the daises and roses in the garden.
Will she talk with me someday?
 
There is a girl walking under the rain.
She is charming and coy, She is so fair,
I will not leave my bed ever again.
Why, why this merry air?

I can't compare your love

I can't compare your love to a sweet red rose,
For roses whither and they die.
I can't compare your love to the deep blue sea,
For it rises and falls with the tide.
I can't compare your love to a white fluffy cloud,
For clouds have a silver lining and then they turn black as night.
I can't compare your love to a high flying kite,
For in a tree can get caught that kite.
I can't compare your love to the brightly shining sun,
For the sun rises in the east and sets in the west.
I can't compare your love to a knight in shining armor, 
For his life has no meaning once he’s finished his quest.
I can't compare your love to an angel,
For angels sometimes fall from heaven to hell.
I can't compare your love to the rain of life,
For there would be no life if the rain never fell.
I can't compare your love to the pure white snow,
For when the warm spring comes it all melts away.
I can't compare your love to a beautiful butterfly,
For the lifespan of a butterfly is only for a single day.
I can't compare your love to a beautiful butterfly to see through the dark,
For once the wax is melted the light goes out.
I can't compare your love to the innocence of a new born baby,
For if it doesn’t gets its way it tends to pout.
I can't compare your love to a fish swimming free in the sea,
For if the fish are not careful they can end up on a hook.
I can't compare your love to the greatest literary work,
For when you get to the last page that’s the end of the book.
I can't compare your love to a secret tightly locked behind a door.
For the secret can be found to one, if one only had a key.
I can't compare your love to anything of value on the earth,
For our love extends beyond the heavens for all eternity.

Just Another Game

I fell 
Back into the shadows 
Hiding in my shell 
Watching the rain 
Extinguish hell 
Gradually, sizzling pain 
I watch, but I shouldn't tell 
How hot the flame once was 
Not a soul could fathom 
How every molecule, nerve 
Connected by the seams of your soul, 
Irreconcilable images  
That which begets peculiar bliss and agony 
A visual so encumbered of confusion, 
How could one betray 
That which once was my light 
Numb, dead, decay, 
Your words 
Rewind, replay 
Broken promises, lies 
How could you 
Leave me in the dark, 
Oozing, bleeding 
How could you break my heart? 
The rain 
Is crashing down 
Emphasizes the pain, 
Please, tell me, was I 
Just a player in your game?

Sometimes

Sometimes...
  When the weight of the world wants to crush my soul
splintering my heart into tiny pieces
  Sometimes ...
I’ll just sit at my window -staring through the glass 
  as the rain quietly drips down my window panes

I feel the child that sleeps inside of me...
  wanting so badly to be hugged - to be loved
It nibbles greedily at my heart strings 
  these pangs of wanting - needing 

As I feel my tears quietly stain my cheeks
  leaving their clear, salty trace - I hear her voice
and I listen to the hopes and dreams of my needy child 
  this little girl that sleeps inside my soul - my mind
I quietly pay attention to her heart 
  her unspoken words- held so deep within 

I imagine her dancing - laughing - playing carefree
  Watched over lovingly by those who were supposed to care
Those too busy to notice
  Those who failed to pay her mind…
Failing to connect the dots that made her smile
  Failing to help her blossom into a woman

Through my window - I watch the rain cry its tears
  As they silently drip down the window panes of my heart - 
my child’s heart
  Peeling back the worn, torn pages of my mind
I reticently watch the world go by - wishing 

So many of my pieces missing - 
  leaving raw, unfinished edges on my skin
Elusive, tainted memories of a childhood never given
  Love never shared 
Left alone - neglected

Tracing the rain as it drips quietly on my window pane
  I touch the wetted tears on my face
Reminiscent of my own failings as a mother
  Evoking the sad memories of my wounded, lost childhood
The weeping tears of me - her 
  My little girl within

Your Tears

Honey I see you got lost,
Walking around in old memories.
Were they the ones of you and me?
I know we still have all those hopes and dreams.
I know sometimes life is hard to handle,
So many thoughts come to your mind and are racing.
When you look through the darkness still I’m here as your candle,
Just walk towards me and quit pacing.
Sometimes we all stumble and fall,
Like a blanket we can be surrounded by fear.
There is no shame in asking for help at all,
Just let me help you dry your tears.

They fell like rain from the sky,
All your tears I saw falling.
There’s no way I could just walk by,
I heard your heart desperately calling.
I see in your face the pain that you feel,
I have the words for you I want to say.
Just know I see your hurt that’s so real,
Baby even angels have a bad day.

My love remember us walking hand in hand,
Through beautiful forests so alive and green.
A stolen kiss in a quiet moment so grand,
Nothing’s changed in my heart all is still so serene.
Let me kiss those tears from your eyes,
I will always be here for you.
There are always bound to be arguments and fights,
True love always forgives as we always do.
With each other we can heal our hearts,
No need to walk through a trail of tears.
Our love could never be torn apart,
Only those tears will ever disappear.

They fell like rain from the sky,
All your tears I saw falling.
There’s no way I could just walk by,
I heard your heart desperately calling.
I see in your face the pain that you feel,
I have the words for you I want to say.
Just know I see your hurt that’s so real,
Baby even angels have a bad day.

WITH RAIN CAME LOVE

WITH RAIN CAME LOVE
Cool breeze
Cumulus clouds
Breeze solidifies,
Drizzling
Monsoon rain
White threads move to
Heavy shower.
Rain smiles
And with rain came love.
Long journeys
Longing leaning on his back
In the valley
Where meteors shower
Unexpected momentary moments
Eddied life,
Glimpses like water bubbles
Shadows overpowered specks of lights
Specks of laurels
Sudden borders to dreams
Yonder in the sky departing clouds
Swollen rain clouds
Lustre obscure
Renunciation with disinterest
Rain and love spreading over
Love brought silence
Mermaids, water nymphs
Stood guard.
We went close at heels
Along turbulent back waters
We sat, in grief
In rain and mystifying silence
Passion delivered
And kept in store
Spread over us.
Rain peeping through
Birch trees
Rain lashing through
Gulmohar
Geography of silence
Without a speck of dirt
Pious communion
Of love and rain.
Wailing hornbills, compassionate
Invoked rain
She saw us in deep grief
Grief of life-
Love in deep sleep blushed into
Wakefulness.
Longing, sights and rude realities
Cosmic force showers
Moments of eternal bliss.
In steep valley of sterility
Ascetic sun winked
At welcome clouds
Dryness transplanted
Into alluvial softness.
Rude faces, sights and longings
Lost way,
Emerged throbbing passion.
Showers of love,
Showers of mystic bliss.

the rain outside,
competing with my tears inside,
the difference,
nothing but. . .
the rain wets the yard,while
my tears wet my heart. . .

Cerebral Puddle

Thoughts swell in my mind like a puddle on a rainy day 
as droplets of ripples expanding the puddle's display. 
 
Clouds in the sky clapping away the applause can be heard for miles. 
The light of the sky grasping the land like a parents hand to a child's. 
 
Then in an instant the shadow consumes the light shadowing both far and near, 
so brilliant in an instant as seen in lighting before it disappears.
 
The puddle remains growing from the raindrops still falling through out the night 
like the brain performing cerebral function to manifest thoughts to sight. 
 
 
Thoughts to the mind like raindrops to a puddle distorts reflections meant to be seen 
as the brilliance of the night, the puddles remembers as inspiration for the mind to 
dream.
 
The claps of thunder has ceased, the rain does not stop but lessens 
as the sun creeps to the horizon the dawn the puddle beckons. 
 
The rain has halted as morning inches closer the aroma of dew is pungent in the air 
the puddle remains still unshaken in the dawn glowing from the sun's glare. 
 
 
As a bride on her wedding day awaiting the moment she stands before her groom 
the puddle has waited throughout the rainy night admiring the sun from the moon. 
 
Like a princess to a mask her glance reveals the fairest complexion 
as the sun smiles down upon the land through the puddle of his own reflection.

MYSTICAL RAIN

Beautiful lights that glare before me,
Magic delights you allow me to see.

Mystical Rain in the sky up above,
Mystical Rain throwing stardust of love.

A surreal sight as I stand and adore,
Leading the way - so that men reach the shore.

Mystical Rain in the air all around,
Mystical Rain making love without sound.

Marvelous specks of desire in my view,
Lightly you peck at my face like the dew.

Mystical Rain; blue metallic and green.
Mystical Rain; play your tune quite serene.

A show so alive as you dart through the sky,
Helping planes through the mist, where pilots do fly.

Mystical Rain; shine your light in my path.
Mystical Rain warm my heart; make me laugh.

A love song, at last

Rain, 
in the inner forests
of your eyes

The heart of flowers
in your smile

The misty watchtower
is your lips

The sigh of surge 
in your fingertips

The rain flowing endlessly
over my head

My eyesight is hidden 
by the oozing of the rust
recollections and 
nightmares

I run to the day
but the rain never stops 
on my accursed soul

You close your eyes
as if the winter 
closes its cold text

The rhymes of babies 
toddles on the yard

You are the spider web
of sun rays
i am the broken pieces 
of sun stone of the atlas

I am walking
through the life
baring the cursed downpour 
over my wild brain
endlessly, eternally

When you look me 
with passion
The wind unties its knot
when you hum the lines 
of a love song
the sea suddenly startles
from the sleep
the wind starts its journey

Now the rain stops

Crying In The Rain

Crying in the rain
Letting go of all this pain
I do not want to see again
How we came crashing to an end
I do not want to see why
We were forced to say good bye
I have watched it and I have lived it
Been crushed by such a low hit
I’m crying in this rain
My eyes red with raw pain
The tears are flowing
Just not going
And I’m left all alone
I beg for your forgiveness
I scream with all I’ve got
But when it comes together
What I have is not a lot
I walk alone down this street
Strangers’ eyes are following
But I just keep on walking
Head down and never slowing
I pace these roads and hope to find
Something that means anything
Something that’s familiar
Until then I’m just left hanging
I’m still crying in this town
The rain pours on my face
Trying to forget you
But failing at first base
I cannot help but remember
Your face and how you smile
Just keep walking strong
It might be easier after a mile
Your eyes and how they glowed
Are burnt into my mind
I close my eyes and see them
Staring back right into mine
I’m crying on this night
And will on many more to come
I’ll stumble forward without you
Looking for my fortune
I cannot ever forget
The feeling that I had
When you put your arms around me
And chased away all the sad
I will try but fail to forget
How you loved me through thick and thin
I will wander through my life
But always still in love with him
He was my world and I can’t forget
He makes me who I am
Although he’s gone and lost from sight
I will not become a sham
I will always try to forget
How brilliant he made me feel
Made the world seem wonderful
And that maybe this world was real
The pain I feel when I remember him
Is cutting deeper still
He’s left a gaping hole in me
One that no one could ever fill
I try and try and fail again
My baby is still gone
I’m crying in this rain again
Cold and all alone

Moonrise

Now bring your rain to fall on me
To wash away my deep regrets
I know how lost it all can be
To one who's only seen sunsets
But rise, pure heart, sweet sanguine gem
But rise, and I cannot condemn
Nor you, nor I, nor all the world
Can know the perfect taint within a pearl

Agitation grows perfection
All things stem from darkest dust
Diamonds, pearl, love's complexion
Know its name is what it was
So dark, so dank, so damp and cold,
In loneliness 'gins love. Not gold
But silver, lunar, somber shines
In where are found love's anodynes

So shine the moon upon my soul
So taint my eyes in crimson's stead
So bring your rain to make me whole
Oh leave the past for dead

Let us live the moment's endless loss of space and time
Let us live, let us regret, forgive this heart of mine

Not sun, but moon, not gold, but grey
Nor heart nor mind is here to stay
No tears could ever fade away
Let live the dark, let fall the day

Let stormclouds fall, content, contrite
Completion, oh what death is right
When never torn away from sight?
The sunset
   is
       so beautiful
               Tonight.

RAIN RETURNS

 Rain Returns

Rain showering
Offering affluent tribulations
On the feet of barren tree
Blushing and springing life

Cajoling rain anoint
Holy oil on burnt out soul,
Caressing rain smear
Heavenly bliss on temples,
Murmuring rain
Horripilate espousing
Garden fresh love.

Rain grunts
Slashing violently
Deporting love to landslides
A henchman sleeps at the bell mouth.

Rain mourn
The untimely death
Of love and silence
Song of Silence

Rain sneaks off
Snubbing of burning chest
Rain sneaks off
To unreachable reaches

Rain knuckles
Fleeing to terrains ahead
Making us heavy hearted.

Washout

Meteoric warning of storm's danger, 
still awed nonetheless by its brute force.
And those giants along the tree line—
submitting to its dark, amorphous power—	
bow in the darting whip of its tongue
as though being torn to shreds by its teeth
and wilted by its breath is their portion.
The curtain of rain that follows in its wake
curries the earth and leaves it green, sunlight
glinting on wet, dusky boulders like the ones
you hauled in from the forest to surround
the flowerbeds. The rain so heavy it left
the lilies crushed, like my heart, ripped
from my breast that day you left, and I,
bowing like the line of trees in the rain.

The Rain

Sometimes I wonder
Will it be sunny every day?
Will the cosmos run under 
A cool distant haze?
Can mistakes be made
And rectified quickly?
Will stronger ones always 
Act that much more swiftly?
With voices raised
The heart feels the shame
Of a terrible mistake
That’s now lost in the rain
It washes the ugliness
That the night’s events brought
And cleans out the air
That the two roommates sought
You’re so much stronger 
Than me can’t you see?
The kindness and love 
In your heart’s blinded me
You’re soothing and comforting
Just to the touch
I wish I could offer
Even half as much
But I want you to know
And I’m making this clear
That after last night
I have nothing to fear
For the rain makes puddles
And when they appear
I see in my vision
It washes away tears…

My Words

I guess I never realized our love was fading,
I near died when you said that you needed some time.
Oh how I remember back when we first started dating,
Looks like I was blind until you said good bye.
Going through these pictures without you I can feel myself breaking.
How did things get so faded with time?
Now my body it won’t stop shaking,
I clearly see all my mistakes and all your reasons why.

If my love fell like rain how I would give you an ocean.
If it had wings we could soar through the sky.
Yet for me it comes in words like the ones I’ve just spoken.
If it came as death then for you I would lay down and die.

I look down at this empty bed and still I picture you there sleeping.
All I can do is drink in a small trace of your perfume.
If these walls could talk they would tell you how my heart is weeping.
Without your voice I’m lost in the silence of this room.
If you could look in my eyes and here my words they are all yours now.
My heart seemed only to beat when you were by my side.
Your name is the only one I’ll ever call out.
If I had you here I know once again I would feel alive.

If my love fell like rain how I would give you an ocean.
If it had wings we could soar through the sky.
Yet for me it comes in words like the ones I’ve just spoken.
If it came as death then for you I would lay down and die.

So never again will I let our love fade alone into the night.
I would have the world if once more I kissed those lips.
I know we could make our future turn out so bright.
Never again with love would I be taking such a risk.

If my love fell like rain how I would give you an ocean.
If it had wings we could soar through the sky.
Yet for me it comes in words like the ones I’ve just spoken.
If it came as death then for you I would lay down and die.

A Dove

I am just an innocent dove
Who only know how to love
And I am in deep love with someother female dove
But She said , she has no belief in me and love
She is the only one who listens to me
She is the only one who stole my lonliness
Many times I said I love you more than my life
But she used to laugh at me
Then she said,'' I will believe in love and you
When I see the rain drops in red
When my body became wet in that red drops''
I am confused and said it's just impossible
Again she laughed and said this love is also impossible

I want to make her believe my love is true
And I can do anything for her
One day, I am with a red rose to her
She is in deep sleep and my be in a dream
I don't want to disturb her
I am just flying above her and waiting to express my love again
Then she suddenly wokeup from the sleep
Because of the red rain
She became totally wet in that red drops
And she is the happiest person to see that miracle
But those are my last moments
Because the rose is just in my mouth
But the thorns are sucked in my heart
That is not the red rain but my red blood
I gave her the rose and proposed again
She accepted my love with the tears in her eyes
Those are the last words I heard
Just for those words I lived

Seed of Birth

Moments to Reflect
Seed of Birth
After a summer shower I watch the wonders unfold Gods truth is being shown. His love for all shall be known to all who have eyes that can see. The miracle of life that is a delight to behold can be seen in a drop of rain on the end of a leaf. Sparkling like a diamond in the light, more precious than gold, a secret is told. The water of life, without it we cannot go on the earth would be has dry has a bone. A desert: a waste land as hot as Hades and not fit to be called home. The water of life He is known. 
The air so sweet and clean the breath of life He has been called. A blessing from the father it is a Gift given to us all. When the air can been seen it is unclean and in this state I call it satans breathe, oh so foul and within it only death can be found. 
Flower and trees, grass that is so green that there is not any artist in the world that could paint a more beautiful scene. Concrete streets and black top parking lots; progress is what it is called…maybe not. An eyesore, mans’ master piece his legacy, beauty it’s not. 
Like a spring rain or after a summer shower; new life does salvation brings. Like the morning dew shining like tiny jewels, in the sunshine they do glow.  Flowers blooming and life a renewing, with Jesus this is how salvation goes.
Rain can be seen as the world being baptized and cleansed, purifying it of mankind sins. This is a fresh beginning but it not at its end it only truth starts when you ask Jesus to come in.  
After a gentle rain shower our God reminds humanity of His power and His promise: rainbow in the sky a wonderful, magical miracle, truly a delightful sight. His signature written in the sky, proof that He tells no lies; never again with water will He end the world that has bought to Him so much pain. His tears of sadness, never again will the world end with rain. 
The evil one try his best with his temptation and his tests to cause us to die and never to rise; humanity he do hate want to take all with him into that fiery lake. These are the tools of his trade war and strife adding in a touch of worldly lust doing his best to kill our trust in the Lord who has given us so much. The spiritual war is what we are in do not fall for satan schemes. Heaven or hell which one will it be? Like the sun gives life to flower, the Son gives life to all who follows. He who is free is free in deed.
Christ the savior God did send, it shows us that satan cannot win. Like a summer day after a spring rain new life will begin. He will pardon us of all our sins but you must ask him to come in His forgiveness know no end. Open your heart and let Him in then and only then can you win. In Him salvation is guarantee and a new life can begin; so you must choose Heaven or hell where will you spend eternity in? 
God our Father gave His Son to the world so that we would have a path to the truth a light to shine in the darkest of time. Allow His attributes to shine forth you do not would to lose your soul. Before time ever begin He love us, will you not trust in Him sight unseen, the One who gives all life meaning?
All it takes is faith to bypass that fiery lake, because tomorrow is not promise and another sunshine you may not see. Time is on no one side, so do not go chasing rainbows you cannot fly. Keep what real in your mind the reality is sin must die. God give His Son to pay a price that He did not owe, the cost was high, but gift that is given for those who believe; is to be by His side, salvation is free are you ready to receive?
Summer shower and gentle breeze,
Golden flower and dew drops of leaves.
Soft green grass beneath your feet.
                    The only thing sweeter is than life is living with Jesus for all eternity.

"My Soulmate"......

 As I sat outside and watched the rain come down,
I had only one thought,
I miss not having you around........

 As I watch the rain dance for me , on the grass, and every blade,
I think to myself, how I really do have it made........

 I have it made, because my heart, it feels so good,
and you and I both know, you'd be with me , if you could......

 As I feel the rain soak into my skin,
I think to myself, 
This love is so right, this love from within............

 As I watch the rain still falling free,
I think of how much , you are a part of me..........

 I have you in a place where others can't go,
and I will tell you now, 
You are a part of my soul..........

 As I watch the rain come to an end,
I smile and think how great this is,
You are my soulmate , not just my friend........

I'll Follow You

If you cry out my name
I'll come running to your door
I'll be there when the world walks out
When you're broken up inside
I will be by your side
Hold you through the night
Be there when it rains

There will be storms, I promise you
But I swear I will help you get through
Cause it can't rain forever
I'll follow you, whatever you do

My arm around your neck
Your head on my shoulder
Hold you tight
Squeeze back in you the will to carry on
The spark, the fire, the fight

If you cry out my name
I'll come running to your door
There will be storms, I promise you
But I swear I will help you get through
Cause it can't rain forever
I'll follow you, whatever you do

You can never be alone
Cause a part of me is tied to you
Just know that
I'm never alone when I think of you
I'll be there every single second
Every single day
For the rest of my life
You're an amazing person
One of these days, I know
I hope
You will see more in me than the girl who is your friend
Cause I'll be there for you more than any one in the end

Rain On A Sunny Day

Today, again, the rain falls
while the sun is still too bright;
joy and pain at war, deaf to truce calls,
each droplet doomed to evaporate from sight.
Oh, this warmth, punctuated fleetingly
by specks of floating condensation;
like the fevered heat of my memory,
our last tear-eyed conversation.
How like this confusing horizon
was our, too brief, time as one;
strange contradiction love relies on:
chilling rain and a brilliant sun.

poets and lovers

people always watch as the sun starts setting
like an eye, the stars focus in sight
the day’s decisions now turn to regretting
with the red vanishing to a violet light 

the moon’s glow now casts shadows from the trees
the clouds like a wave cover the stars
phantom footsteps of rain heard on the leaves
and lighting cuts the sky without leaving scars 

these twilight storms are made for lovers 
and sad poets of the night
they sound like soldiers marching into war
debating between wrong and right 

know that some are just softly sleeping in their bed
as this rainstorm barrels down into the streams
while other’s cannot stop weeping in their head
wanting to be woken from their dreams 

as the poet writes his saddest piece in despair
tears fall to the paper like the rain from above
a fireplace philosopher in his old chair
looking out the window as the couple makes love 

these twilight storms are made for lovers 
and sad poets of the night
they sound like soldiers marching into war
debating between wrong and right 

some search their entire lives for the one
like a sailor waiting for a ship that was never there
hoping their lives could somehow be undone
living on the wrong side of the word unfair 

these twilight storms are made for lovers 
and sad poets of the night
they sound like soldiers marching into war
debating between wrong and right

A HEROINE FORGOTTEN BY TIME

No history's books with golder trim
ever recorded her sweet name...
softer than a warm rainfall,
she only listen to her call.


Away, swifter than lightning, into the sunless forest
she rode the whitest horse in her dazzling wool dress;
and by her undeniable amazon looks, one surely knew 
Rain had the strength and audacity of riding through.


In mediaval times, men seeking many adventures  
could become mercenary soldiers 
to fight a Holy War in the Crusades...
and Rain protected those wild and pristine lands.


Brave and willing women were excluded from every battle,
by being harshly told to hush...suppressing their pain,
but courageous Rain changed all that with a refrain,
" I'll defy anyone pillaging the grasslands and not tremble!"

The Call

The Call...The Call
I have answered...The question    
 
  Would you like to have sex before pleasure
Take me now...I am burning with desire
Get Down on Me honey
Too much of a good thing is wonderful
I am bringing in home darling
Now...Attached to You...As One
You taking thee deep
You smile
It is the second best thing that you do with your lips.
Sit...Sit on me Gently
Take me in
Take me deep
Kiss me...Hold me...Guide me into you
The rain will fall
I will rain on you
Cumming whenever you call
You have heard my mating call
Answered you have
Into your arms
Your sexual charms
I am lost
I am lost

Living on SOMEDAY

If raindrops rise in leu of fall
would you seek the meaning overall?
Would spectacles endow with a clarity of fog
would you follow tangled lines of a rearward call?

Inevitable advance to stepping backwards
and dreams which mock to be their master
like a fugitive refusing to be captured
so elusive is a grapple for the stars
be warned, from such affrighted height
timeless seems the stretch of the fall

An orbit all it's own surrounds me
weightless I am tossed by its force
as if compelled to repel my pleas
but it is I who have chosen the course

Roxane I am...
so moved by eloquence 
even drawn in though querulous
A romantic poignant marathon
divided desires and more the sentiments
even Cyrano discerned this unworthy echelon 

The raindrops rise
weary of myself and unquiet in the asking 
where I am or outght to be 
an upended life held out for the grasping
unyielding as death to sympathy

A cry like thine in my own heart I hear
'Twas not his nose but courage he suffered
wanting not to wound the mantel of the muse
Tis the story of the broken, of certainty asunder 
how contorted truths squelch 
that which once empowered to move

I too, a Cyrano
In faith bent underfoot 
even imperfection can still bounteous be
when we make not trite what love overlooks

The profundity of a storybook
Is the one who's end is left unwritten 
a someday never forsook 

True in turn we want of all...
The sky above, a level ground
in living passion have no fear
every tear tuned up side down

One blink!
to set right
the umbrella over life
Not half in one, and half of another
a half bred mutt like a perfect shame
I long for a world where raindrops fall D
                                                             O
                                                              W
                                                                N again

Trembling, helpless...  to walk away
for all the distance we've already paved
securely anchored in a world faraway
derived in hopes of "THE SOMEDAY"
 
Allowed to rise you drops of rain
until the glint of sun be plain
Still, from then unto this day
will love the man for which I prayed
though the sorrow of its corse 
be unexplained even overstayed 

The stars a worthy reach!
Bounded by themselves, and unobservant
In what state God’s other works may be

‘Resolve to be thyself: and know, that he
who finds his purpose in life
 loses his misery.’

Actually I Have A Quite Extensive Vocabulary

There are some things that I should say to you
But I just can’t find the words
They keep running from tongue 
And avoiding all my thoughts

And I’ve got to find a way, to say… you are… 
Well you are…
The words that I can’t find
And the feelings I don’t know

But I’ve got to find a way… to show…
That I can never let you go
Until I find the words, to say…
You are... Well you are……

You are the rain that hits my roof
And sings me back to sleep
You are my strength to rise again
When I’ve fallen to my knees
You are the warmth that comforts me
When the cold has made me weak
And still these words they don’t explain
All the things you are… well you are….

So I try again to say these things 
That I should say to you
To track down the words and bring them to their knees
And let them flow across my lips

So you can finally see, to me… you are…

Well you are…
The words that I can’t find
And the feelings I can’t show

But I’ve got to find a way… to show…
That I can never let you go
Until I find the words, to say…
You are... Well you are……

You are the rain that hits my roof
And sings me back to sleep
You are my strength to rise again
When I’ve fallen to my knees
You are the warmth that comforts me
When the cold has made me weak
And still these words they don’t explain
All the things you are… well you are….

Impermanent Peace

The rain taps soft against the windowpane
I've always loved listening to the rain
The wind slowly carries my only deep peace
All of the struggles and miseries release
Nature soothes my confused young soul
This world of mine has taken its toll
All of life is only a temporary stay 
The trees and plants will all rot away
We are all just guests in the green and blue
And this is why I still remember  you…
You always loved listening to the rain
The rain taps soft against the windowpane
The wind slowly carries my broken pieces
And like everything else the peace ceases
All of life is only a temporary stay
The sun and stars will fade away
We are all just guests in the green and blue
And this is why I will always love you…

It Rained that Day

It rained that day - 

incessant, driving rain 
that mirrored my watery brokenness. 
Teeming tears, teeming rain, teeming torrents 
of gnawing, agonizing pain. 

It rained that day - 

overpowering the inefficient 
stressed out drain. A gurgling back-flow 
of uncomfortable memories re-surging 
in my mind again.....and again, 

as the rained poured - 

bitterness and streaming resentment 
onto the saturated ground. 
The only sound the beating downpour 
on the tinkling window pane, 

and I watch it falling......... 

falling apart .... 
like the shards of my heart; 
blade shaped, and stabbing mercilessly 
at once precious memories now irreversibly tarnished 

as they gush, tumbling down that overburdened drain....... 

swirling in the sewage, wasted, acrid smelling, 
torrential.....then gone from sight - 
like you, gone, held tight, but gone, with the rain 
down the drain, never to be seen again ......... 

It rained that day - 

the day you left me bereft and 
devoid of emotion. Sore from emotional misuse. 
Untrusting. Hatches battened. Defences built; 
walls constructed never to be scaled. 

It rained for a while, 

but today the sun shone.

rain in my heart

                                               (4/11/13)

I am walking in the rain as so many people do
Letting the rain refresh me as I thought of you
The rain erasing all doubts from my mind
Knowing you’re one of a kind.

Your love like a pearl in an oyster shell
Is worth more than man can tell.
GIRL! Your love became like an eternal fire
Filling all my hearts desires.

I am giving in – can’t take it any more
My life has changed since you walked out that door.
I’ve had lonely days and sleepless nights
No more “WILL” left to fight.
Why did I hurt you the way I did
When you had so much love to give.
There is a torrential “rain in my heart”
And I’m praying for a brand new start.
Will you forgive me and take me in
Like you would a long lost friend.

Midnight Thunderstorm in Joburg

Echoes of furious thunder,

splintering the silence of night.

The rain beating down in sheets,

fractures the darkness with lashes of light.


Branches strewn snapped and broken,

leave limbless trees shattered.

The torrential deluge crushes,

delicate flowers laying bruised and scattered.

…

Ah, but the storm passes,

as all tempests eventually fade,

leaving raw wounds to heal,


shielded from the morrow’s blazing sun,

resting in the serene coolness of comforting shade

Rain

Rain rain go away come back another day
Was a song that was trapped in our brain and we always say
But did we really want the rain to go away
Just because we liked the sun we would betray
Some can jump up and shout hooray
But we are selfish and we had our own act of foul play

Rain was the one element that washed the world clean
No matter if you were thirteen or nineteen
Or even somewhere in between
We all had are troubles but when the rain came we were whipped clean
No matter how dirty we may have been the rain cleaned our screen

Thy sun was thy enemy as it kept the pain and anguish there
But thy rain hid thy tears in which we could not bare
Kissing in the rain is something that nothing can compare
Rain rain go away is something we declare
But little did we know the rain was the handyman and would always repair
No matter if you sitting in your rocking chair
Or hugging your favorite teddy bear
The rain always played some part in your love affair

Natural disasters can come at any time 
A hurricane to twist your emotions then drown you whole
A tornado so send you on a spiral in which you could never imagine
A flood in which you become to overwhelmed but everything around you
An earthquake to shake your feelings up about the one you so call love
Lightning to strike your relationship and make it come to an end

Yet we sing rain rain go away come back another day
Rain is a calming and peaceful sound that lives on in our ear
We should open our minds until they are clear
We ask the love in our life to go away 
And we want the pain to stay
It’s funny how we stand in front of someone and display
The pain we have and still don’t want the clouds to turn grey

We are addicted to pain like cocaine
And it’s something me must pull ourselves from and restrain
Because if we don’t break this chain
We will all wind up going insane
So yall can choose to have the natural disasters and think you will be put at some gain
But I will always choose the rain

Rain rain stay awhile for thou not know what you bring

A kitten named Love

Love:

His gloved fingers loosely grab the tin cup as he sits slumped over.
People pass, barley glancing at the tattered man before them, their faces uncaring.
He has no home, no duplex or even apartment to call his own. Tonight he occupies a large box behind a local pizzeria, which sometimes if he is lucky the employees take pity and hand him a sack of three day old pepperoni. 

He rests his head along him arm, closing his wrinkled eyes before the rain comes. It bounces off his cardboard box fiercely and pools around his naked toes. A veteran for his country, he never thought his life legacy would be this, an empty box laying in an ally.

The night drags on with the raging storm, high winds, monstrous bolts of lighting and thunderous booms. Eventually the old man is awaken but not by the pounding rain but a purr. A kitten, merely a few months old has wondered into his lap taking refuge from the storm. Its orange and white fur drips as he shivers, yet his purr echos around the sagging brown walls. He sits upright and cradles the kitten, wondering why it didn’t run. Perhaps like himself  the small animal only wants a home. 

Its olive shaped eyes fixate on an empty bag of meat, its heart racing rapidly. The kitten is thin, appearing as though it has never ate. The war vet smiles and slides off his coat, he wraps the kitten gently then grabs his tin cup. Eagerly he shakes, panning for nickles and dimes. He washes windows even wipes away the grime. Never has he worked harder for $8.75 but tonight the man and kitten will eat from a bag that reads pedigree and to him that’s just fine. He has made a friend in the most unlikely of places and to him in the most needy of circumstances. Tomorrow the vet will rise and work the cruel streets of New York. He will face ridicule, people glaring in disgust, but he will gladly face it all to provide for his kitten he named Love.

Through The Seasons

God brought us together                            
Don’t you know it’s true?                                            
So love me every day    
Promise that you do
 
Love me through the sun                            
Love me through the rain                            
Love me all you can                                                        
And I will do the same
 
Love me through the Fall
Orange and red in the trees
Just like a light jacket
Let your love rain over me
 
Love me through the Winter
When snow is everywhere
Cuddle me and show me
That your love will never fail
 
Love me through the Spring
Yellow flowers in my hair
The sun helping growth
Like the love that we both share
 
 
Love me through the Summer                  
On those hot and humid days
Watching the sun set
With a loving sort of gaze
 
Love me all year long
Through the bad and through the good
We’ll start all over next year
Just like a great love should

Mercedes White Extended Version

The shadows cast a gray December 
the mist of rain I've wished for dearly 
with my eyes barely shut I still remember 
within my dream my body lie weary, 
this tale be told through admission of sin 
I must admit I've dealt such hand 
of all the places in this world I've been 
I miss most this wonder land, 
for when I lie my body to rest 
Tis the mind that takes this forthright journey 
through the woods and the waters I am the guest 
in a place where the angels guard the wicked that hurt me, 
I reach the docks so crooked and frail 
as the calm of the water reflects in darkness 
with the angel Marie we both set sail 
towards this dream I know and forever harness, 
The sails hold strong as the wind does blow 
as I hold my angel within my arms 
with a silence disrupted by the song of crows 
aside Marie I'm far from harm 
the midnight moon shares its light 
as we near the end of the waters way 
I share a kiss that turns darkness white 
Knowing Marie my dear cannot stay 
for I have reached this land as her my guide 
and from here to there I go alone 
the only rain fall from within my skies 
as I continue closer to a place I know 
All too well I fear some days 
for the abstract mind does grow fonder 
as I reminisce on rested plays 
of all the scenes I've yet to wander 
for within that stray I walk content 
despite the common misadventure 
for the end this path has a hand that's lent 
towards the manor in which I'll enter, 
So onward bound I march my cadence 
with persistence proud beside me 
with a passion so deep as my only payment 
I tear the canvas that tries to hide me, 
and there it was behind the trees 
of the timbers that contained its light 
the house of angels I knew I'd reach 
the house the angels call Mercedes White, 
oh the beauty how the heavens do cry 
for the painted portrait behind its glass 
for the halls that fill with the angel's sigh 
and the fellow femme that gather in mass 
a sight that cries these tears of joy 
oh the wonders of such enchantment 
filled in the minds of only dreaming boys 
is such a place like White so candid 
and now as I stand in front this Eden 
I see with eyes how Gods must miss 
their angels from heaven who are here this evening 
to tell their tales through a whispered white kiss.

Buccaneers of love

 Buccaneers of love
In the love legends
Not resembling the angels 
But they are prophets of the hearts
Their revelation
The true love 
The endless love
The renewed love
Appreciating love
Living for the love
Dying for the love

Buccaneers of love 
Prophets of the hearts
Their souls are innocent
Swimming in the sky 
To rain their dreams
And they are swimming 
In space of the longing
To rain the hope

Buccaneers of love
Prophets of the hearts
Under hearts angles
They are shadowing
And they are sucking 
The wine nectar 
From lips of lovers
Not robbing the shyness
And not assassinating tears
Not hurting the feelings

Buccaneers of love
Prophets of the hearts
A toast of the evening
A toast of the morning
Adoring the evening
Adoring the morning
Coloring the seashores
With affections
Besieging the hearts
With feelings
Besieging the eyes
With beauty

Buccaneers of love 
Prophets of the hearts
Waiting for the night
To feel with the warmth of chests
When the lips melt
And the bodies burn
For beginning love
Buccaneers of love 
Prophets of the hearts.........

flood

it was just raining in my dream,
in my sleep, in a pair of my closed eyes. 
then the rain falls in love with my eyes
which never slept. i always find my eyelashes
wet like the dew on the grass, in the morning and evening. 
then the rain was also in love to my body.
delightedly shower me, bathe my body.
my body suddenly has a bathroom
with a tub full of eternal rain. 
then the rain was in love to my bed,
to my room, my house too. it is full of rain.
i saw the cabinets, chairs and tables, clothes, books,
and my memories swam in a huge puddle.
then the rain in love to my yard.
drowned the trees and flowers
in my garden. i saw the stalk
and carrion floating in front of my house. 
then the rain was also in love to road
i watched the rain was running like a vehicle
on it. i do not know where will it go.
you know, i always imagined rain coming to
your house, knocking on your door,
pushed into your room, climbed your bed,
soak your body, and fell in love with your eyes. 
i always pray, in your sleep, in dreams,
a pair of your closed eyes looking at me and the rain,
watching me playing in the rain, alone.
and you come along.

IF ONLY RAIN WOULD

IF     ONLY     RAIN     WOULD  

I   always desired  Rain - but this girl needed   freedom  light as air.  
I heard  her tapping on my bedroom window there.
She, she teased my neck with  cool fingers  in the dark;
She remained;  her kiss mark, lip mark, love mark.

If Rain came to me from heaven’s blue lake
She’d swiftly swoop and slake
My desert hot and dry with her founts,  
Riding her  mighty floating white mounts,
Filling me with her life-giving moisture.
But she wouldn’t let me her cloister. 

My  desiccated  seared  nothingness, 
My  empty  wearied hopelessness,
My lifeless  parched skeleton-seeds lying here  would
Be fleshed to flower in her flowing flood -
My barren world would be petal-carpeted.
But all my blooms would unrequited
Be without her liquid passion -
In a Rain-less world of aborted proliferation.

If my beautiful Rain would make love 
As if the heavens had trumpeted it above,
Drawing from me the essence waiting to germinate
In  her  fertile nectar  in  spate,
Then my grounded seeds would burst with rapture
As  Rain  stooped my heart to capture.

OUR MIDNIGHT PLACE

 OUR MIDNIGHT PLACE
As certain as the rains do fall in spring,
will be my love, for you to have and hold,
and know you now--my rain of love will bring
to you, all joy of which all love is told.

No one could ever count the drops that fall,
and so is put together, love for you,
numbers cannot be given them at all,
though put together, one is what will do.

And every single drop adds beauty there
to something we can call a rainy day,
to fill with love, made up, from everywhere,
the drops of life that make love what we say.

Our midnight place, your front porch, dreaming of
each drop of rain that's filled with so much love.

He takes me on vacation to a resort 
just off the coast of Aruba. The hotel 
room is amazing...everything in it is 
white red and pink. From the 
couches, rugs and comforter on the 
bed... Im in aw as we walk through 
the door. No one has ever cared or 
loved me enough to do this 
before..it's raining outside which 
makes it even better for me. 
Something about the rain that's just 
enlightening..i open up the patio 
door so that i can hear the rain more 
clearly...he tells me to sit down and 
relax we've had a long flight, while he 
orders room service..I'm going to 
take a bath..he already knows what i 
like...i walk in the bathroom...my 
bath water has already been 
ran...with candles lit and rose pedals 
adorning each spot that my eyes 
land...my heart melts...wow..he 
comes in behind me and opens the 
window so there's a nice cool breeze 
flowing in...he asks if i want him to 
join me...i tell him of course i do 
baby feel free...we enjoy one 
another's company...how it's so 
relaxing...i can't get over how good 
this man is to me...all my guards are 
let down...he bathes me from head 
to toe...as i embrace the moment...i 
wash him clean...he steps out grabs 
a huge towel and wraps it around my 
small frame...he carries me to the 
bedroom...that's fully decorated with 
all of my favorite things..from candle 
scent to my favorite Vicky apparel 
and footie socks all in my favorite 
color ..i look him in his eyes and tell 
him i Love him...your something 
else...i changed into my lingerie he 
picked out for me..he has great 
taste...i ask him if he can hold me 
while i enjoy that instant...he 
obliges..but says but 1st he needs to 
know one thing...i look at him and 
asks and what's that? He pulls out a 
5 carat ring!!...i gasp for air...i can't 
breath..this is the moment i dreamt 
about so many times...he looks me 
in my eyes while getting down on 
one knee...he says he's been 
searching for me all his life...he 
never thought he'd find someone to 
complete the missing pieces in his 
life...his life would mean nothing 
without me and my girls in It...he 
says would i give him the honor of 
being his queen forever and become 
his wife...my tears are flowing 
endlessly..i cannot believe this is 
actually happening to me...I've 
always felt so unworthy and so 
unwanted...this man is amazing, God 
fearing, handsome, sexy, strong, 
gives unselfishly and has waves for 
days(lol). He has every attribute I've 
prayed for, from his head to his 
shoes... I'd be crazy not to say i 
do!!!!!!!!!

Rain

I look out the window, 
looks like the sky is turning gray.
I suppose Mother Nature
knows I thought of you today.

The view is quite beautiful, 
and so I step outside.
Then shortly the wind 
blows away all my pride.

A solitary raindrop
lands on my cheek.
It felt like your kiss;
wet, gentle, and sweet.

Did you ever notice
the word "rain" rimes with "pain"?
They go together, as did we,
and it is such a shame.

Two hearts became one, 
then somehow became three, 
then two, then one again, 
so where does that leave me?

Your dreams have come true now, 
as you dance in the street, 
in the rain with no music, 
just your heart's gentle beat.

I am all alone now, 
with just the lightning and the thunder.
Why it had to end this way, 
I'll constantly wonder.

The rain is getting heavy
As it bangs on my roof,
like the pain deep inside my chest
when I think about you.

THROUGH THE RAIN

     I SIT AND WATCH THE RAIN..
     A TEAR DROP'S IN MY EYES..
     ROLLING DOWN MY FACE...
     I WIPE THEM DRY....
     BUT STILL I CRY....
     IT'S HARD TO SEE THROUGH THE MISTY
     WINDOW PANE..
     I ONLY SEE MY WRINKLED FACE...
     THESE LAUGHTER LINES ARE NOT SO FUNNY...
     THE YEARS ARE CATCHING UP SO FAST..
     AND RUNNING PAST AT SPEED...
     LOOKING THROUGH THE WINDOW....
     I SEE YOUR SLIGHT REFLECTION..
     YOUR DISAPPEARING...
     FADING...
     WALKING AWAY FROM ME...
     I SHOULD HAVE SEEN IT COMING...
     BUT THE RAIN WAS DRIVING IN MY FACE..
     I RAN AROUND IN CIRCLES..
     CHASING DREAMS THAT COULD NOT BE...
     BECAUSE YOU WERE TO GOOD FOR ME..
     WE LIVED IN DIFFERENT WORLDS..
     BUSINESS CLASS FOR YOU...
     AND ECONOMY FOR ME...
     I LOVED YOU TRULY WITH ALL MY HEART..
     MY DAYS OF WAITING FOR YOUR CALLS...
     HOPING I COULD MAKE YOU DAY...
     BUT THE RAIN HAS WASHED MY DREAMS AWAY..
     I COULD NOT HIDE THE TEARS..
     OR THE SADNESS IN YOUR EYES..
     I CANNOT TAKE THE PAIN..
     I HOPE TODAY IT DOES NOT RAIN............

Blood of a liar, mark of a thief

You took it all
(I held my breath)
You screamed my name
(as you fell to your death)
The crowed gathered round
but I stood tall
with your body laying so broken
you've never looked so small

The rain started pouring down
(oh how I smiled)
There were sirens in the distance
(only a half a mile)
Down below the screaming sounds
I can't hear a thing
everyone's gaze is upon me
waiting for the once caged bird to sing

(Liar)
You promised me everything
did your words mean nothing
were they empty
lifeless without a theme
(Thief)
You took hold of my heart
shredded my soul, raped my mind
did it mean anything
was I even worth it
ir just another part to your scheme

The rain washes away the evidence
(the blood, sweat, and tears)
But rain can't wash away everythng
(no, not everything)
not the pain suffered through the years

Your words were so sweet
who was I to judge
I fell for your parlor tricks
over the edge with one small nudge
Such a beautiful disguise you wore
silly little me
I fell into your web of lies
far too young to ever see

(Liar)
You promised me everything
did your words mean nothing
were they empty
lifeless without a theme
(Thief)
You took hold of my heart
shredded my soul, raped my mind
did it mean anything
was I even worth it
ir just another part to your scheme

You could have been mine
(does it hurt now, hush, be quiet now)
You sold your soul for a good time
(does it hurt now, hush, don't speak now)
Did you think I'd never know?
(does it hurt now, does it hurt now)
Now you must reap the crop you've sewn

(Liar)
You promised me everything
did your words mean nothing
were they empty
lifeless without a theme
(Thief)
You took hold of my heart
shredded my soul, raped my mind
did it mean anything
was I even worth it
ir just another part to your scheme

(Liar)
You had such a pretty little plan
(Thief)
Carried out by such a careless little man

RAIN RETURS

                          

                     
                                                RAIN RETURNS


Rain showering
Offering affluent tribulations
On the feet of barren tree
Blushing and springing life .

Cajoling rain anoint
Holy oil on burnt out soul,
Caressing rain smear
Heavenly bliss on temples ,
Murmuring rain
Horripilate espousing
Garden fresh love .

Rain grunts
Slashing violently
Deporting love to landslides
A henchman sleeps at the bell mouth .

Rain mourns
The untimely death
Of love and silence.

Rain sneakes off
Snubbing of burning chest
Rain sneaks off
To unreachable reaches.

Rain knuckles
Fleeing to terrains ahead
Making us heavy hearted .

Through The Seasons

God brought us together                            
Don’t you know it’s true?                                            
So love me every day    
Promise that you do
 
Love me through the sun                            
Love me through the rain                            
Love me all you can                                                        
And I will do the same
 
Love me through the Fall
Orange and yellow in the trees
Like a light jacket
Let your love rain over me
 
Love me through the Winter
When snow is everywhere
Cuddle me and show me
That your love will never fail
 
Love me through the Spring
Yellow flowers in my hair
The sun helping growth
Like the love that we share
 
 
Love me through the Summer                  
On those hot and humid days
Watching the sun set
With a loving sort of gaze
 
Love me all year long
Through the bad and through the good
We’ll start over next year
Just like a great love should

The Same

The rain beats
against the window
I turn and look
through the glass
Tiny pools of water
are being formed
in the driveway
Soon the rain will stop
The pools of water 
will seep through
the ground
Ans I...will remain
the same

Rain in the City

as the rain falls on the city

all words

seem drenched

running like worthless ink off meaningless paper

yet

the rain falls incessantly on

in sheets of glassy vehemence

tearing my thoughts apart

splintering the fragile truce of this night

words, just worthless words

floating by

wrestling me to the ground

worthless words

devoid of all feeling, and of everything that should be true

disjointed and hollow

as my thoughts in melancholic comfort wallow

wrapping me in a shroud of accepted gloom

a vain cloak of indulgence, 
while revelling in the impending doom

and still the rain keeps pouring

clipping the wings of my dreams

that are no longer intent on soaring

but why do i subject you

to all this idle and quite bitter chatter

for when all is said and done and scribbled

will any of this matter?

so i take leave of you, yet again

as i surrender 

to the lunacy of the sane

and to the whipping

of the cold, biting harrowing rain...

The Red Silk Tie

I’m taking a slow look around
The cold rain hits the ground
My mind is soaked with great distress
The rain is ruining my silky dress
This dark street is cold and alone
I stand near a dead pay phone
Puddles gather at my feet
This is where we said we’d meet
Over an hour has passed me by
I hope you wore your red silk tie
Sirens fill the gaping hole
As if it wrenched my very soul
At that point I think I knew
The blaring sirens were for you
Split the silence from my scream
I wish to wake now from my dream
Stillness fills our lifeless home
I never thought I’d be alone
It rained the day you went to dust
I’ll say goodbye, if I must
As I hang my head to cry
I crumble up your red silk tie

Rain begins again

Rain Begins Again

Dizzy Lizzy sitting in the rain
Waiting for it to sustain
Hear the thunder rolling
The giant in the sky is bowling
The rain is so cool
As the mourning jewel
The birds in the trees
Feeling the cool breeze
The rain gives new birth from the heart
It quenches the earth from its start
The rain feels so fine
It makes my head feel so sublime
The earth needs the rain
So all life can sustain
The feelings that we share
Surely, do we dare?
Revel in the glory
Of the never-ending story
With the land and it’s age
From this to another stage
The flowers so much in bloom
With such a beautiful flume
Surrounding our earth
From the beginning of it’s birth
Will be the rest for me
For all time and my destiny

Love Bloom in the Station Bus

It's 6:30 in the morning 
I am standing in the station bus 
Waiting for a bus way to my work 
When the rain start to drop 
So the umbrella I always bring 
To protect me in cases like this 
I get in inside my bag 
But what got my eyes 
Is not the rain that start to wet the road 
But the man who just stand beside me 
He look at me,smile while he ask me 
If I could share the umbrella with him 
And how can I say no 
When his simple look and smile 
Make my heart beats faster 
And the strong wall I build for years 
To protect my heart from loving 
Due to the obligation I have in my shoulder 
Is now breaking 
Does the wall I made 
Is not Strong enough 
To protect my heart 
Because I feel now 
The wall started to collapse 
Due to the strong beats of my heart? 
Or is it true that falling in love 
Just come and feel it without a warning 
Nor No walls could protect it 
When it start to beat for love? 
Then if it is true 
I still need to guard my heart 
From the deepest pain 
Love might cause.

But It Rained...

Denver sang Annie's song and the wind howled and swept cold.
I paced across my flooded hall, gathering every drop
The fiery rain sold. Specks of cinder fell
On my face and burnt the skin at every place. I paid the price
To buy my drops to swallow pains centuries old.
Pitter patter, pitter patter, pitter patter it went
As I yearned to be those leaves on the banyan,
Moist and cleansed of any gathered dust.
Grabbing my guitar I sat by the window to
Play some tune close to my heart. But the songs
Played themselves. They were close- too close!
My soaked fingers burnt on the fret and I knew not what
I played. All I felt that it burned and scorched while
The wind chilled and soothed others hurt and blaze.
The tree tops swayed to my pain and the clouds started to bleed,
While my fingers went numb playing on the strings. The wind
Whispered, "Burn such tears that no one needs."
A lightening quivered through the echoing space and the light
Blinded my blurry eyes. Like an artist's sketch it rose and fell;
Like the hope that rises and quickly dies. Through the balmy
Dark walls I saw Those eyes, piercing through the lull. Like the
Iceberg that slammed and pierced with ease
Through the great Titanic's hull. Couldn't stop my legs that
Walked me outside the door. Stood there I clad in rags
As the rain pelted; the wind sang ballads for a soaked crow.
It looked at me with a sigh and a frown; maybe I was its
Image of a clown. Roaring and dancing in an ecstasy of thefts,
With streamers and balloons to celebrate this death. Looking down
I saw a puddle, as my parched throat belched with pain.
I cried and Cursed and stretched my arms; screaming...
But it rained.

Natures Love

Rain oh rain don't go away,
stay with me through all my days.
You cool my soul burning with rage,
and warm my heart with heavens rays.
The essence of life,
a gift so light.
In harmony with nature,
as the trees leaves capture,
my hopes and my dreams,
within the blue rain drops gleam.
The sound you make gives me some release,
from the worlds harsh reality's bringing me peace.
Rain oh rain don't go away,
Stay with me through all my day's.
In your down pour I simply meditate
I can feel it's love as it caresses my face.

Loving rain


Loving rain falls down on me, let 
her love continue to cover me.
Loving rain pour over me and let 
the floods of your rain drench me.
Loving rain flood me and let your 
nutriments sustain me. Like water 
we need, her love feels real to me. 
Let her loving rain flow through 
the stem of my vain and let me 
feel the root of her love as her 
rain soak through me. Loving rain
that pour from above let this rain 
be the comfort of your love.

My Bloody Valentine

i sit by the phone 
thinking of you 
you claim  to love me 
but how do i know that is true 
watching the rain 
and than the clock 
thoughts of us 
seem to cross my mind 
the love we knew 
and the time it is 
almost 12 
i swear 
isn't it valentines 
when its finally 12 
and I'm all alone 
what the hell 
i should of known 
our love was fake 
you didn't care 
i wasn't good enough 
or pretty enough
for you 
taking a razor 
blood rain downs 
hey baby i love you 
heres too

perfect moment

the music bounces
writhes
and forces its way
around our hands
inseperable by forces keeping us true
freinds are around
but we ignore them
though i can see their reflection in the rain spattered window
the rythm of the rain mixes with our song
it wraps its way down through the flames that cover the stairs
and into the minds 
of the drunken musicians
the drummer beats the clouds
and thunder overwhelms us
everything shakes
rocking our worlds
to the beat of a classic song

a classic song crawling its way up charred wooden stairs
as though its hand had lost the rail
we wave
slowly back and forth
not unlike a cold winter beach
our eyes close
and we dissapear
into the beautifully vivid blackness

CLOUD

Raindrops fall from the sky as clouds come in.

He waits for the rain to stop, but it keeps going.

No sunshine in sight to dry up the ground.

So he walks in the rain getting soaked by each raindrop.

Then a sudden pain hits his heart trying to break him,

But then he sees a  girl ready to help him.

The feeling goes away and a rainbow is visible.

Their is hope now even though it didn't feel like it a while ago.

I feel you every minute of every day

The sun brings the warmth of your heart
That shines in your radiant smile
Like a summer’s day
And sparkles in your beautiful eyes
Like the brightest stars
In the russet tones
Of a twilight sky
As the copper sun hangs over the horizon
Of a calm tropical sea

The wind brings the sweet music of your voice
And the symphonic melody of your laugh
Caressing my ears
Enveloping me in layers of sound
Like a choir of angels in a dream
A serenade in Venice
A film score in a love scene
The poetic words of everything you say
Touching my heart and soul

The rain brings the delicate scent of your skin
Washing me in the cool fragrance
Of your delicate hair
Showering me in the musky perfume
Of your embraces
Drenching me in the heady redolence
Of your passion
Surrounding me with the fragrance
Of jasmine, roses and sandalwood

The life sustaining air itself brings the essence of you
Making me tingle and vibrate
With your electricity
I feel you every minute of every day
As the sun, the wind, and the rain suffuse me
Warming my mind with the presence of you
Imbuing my body with the pleasure of you
Saturating my soul with the beauty of you
Filling my heart with the love of you

Love Blinded Him

Tears roll down a young mans cheek
As darkness rolls in overhead 
The pain is reflected outside his window
As rain rolls down the glass
His hands shake as tears mix with rage
As anger takes hold he holds no regrets

Vengeance Blinds Him

Rain falls on a young mans head 
As he walks methodically, 
On a mission, determined to get even
As rain rolls off his hat
His fists clench as rage mixes with hate
As the target comes into sight he never thinks twice

Pride Blinds Him

Fists fly from a young mans body
As he connects with his target time and again
Fatigue sets in
As rain still falls
His knuckles throb as blood and rain mix
Knowing his victim hurt her he holds no regret

LOVE blinded him

Water

I watched the raindrops 
one by one they fell
they filled an empty hole
till it became a well
 
every word of yours is dew
like this rain I seek
the hole here large and empty
for a cistern of waters keep
 
Within I hold these waters
as a gift for you
the life within a garden
cannot without them do
 
The moisture collects in clouds and wind
their circuits round the earth each day
their routes can now be firmly mapped
its requirements to life portray 
 
The bounties hidden in a desert
you won't ever see in bloom
until the rain its torrents fall
saturates the seeds entombed
 
Your words are livings waters
they must fall upon the seed
they cannot germinate or grow
they require this moistures deed
 
Mankind's become a desert place
where scorpions and snakes do dwell
life here is with the cold blooded
from the rainforest they have fell
 
Comprehensive examples  have been left
in all nature and histories show
a better teacher than science books
if we observe what's here to know
 
The fabric of all of life
holds me like a wadi tell
like an archeologist
who digs the sands and dell
 
These nations want gold and silver
but true riches they despise
in the end pursuits of vanity
will damn those who think they're wise
 
Once again you refreshed my mind
when I thought my well be dry
the waters here clean and clear
not bottled with a lie

The Better View

I gave it all away for a moment 
I would have done it for a second 
Because the truth us held deep in the mind 
And so very rarely does it find its way to the tongue
Or release itself from blackened lungs
You must live to regret 
If you have done no such thing you have not lived 

She told me she hates my depression 
Asking what is my obsession 
And why is it something never mentioned 
Did I make you think 
Aw sweetie are my thoughts finally sinking in 
I’m looking down with a grin 
She longs to be up there with him 
She’s wondering was he forgiven for his sins
In her mind they all added up and he dissolved them and drank them down 

“God has he found happiness”
“I hope he still remembers the kiss of morning dew”
“Will”
“God damn you”
“Together we were just the few”
“Alone we are just me and you”
She is screaming hard into the sea and praying into the sun
I hate to tell her its useless to prey 
I’m not burning in hell I guess I played my little role pretty damn well
“He had such an abstract view”
“I bet in heaven there is laughter only because of you”
“God does he now sing to you as if some how in cue”

Sweety heaven is made of memories of us two
and it holds no resemblance to perfection 
Because perfection is an idea and affection
That I felt down there with you
Can you hear me floating outside your window I’m singing softly keep time with 
the pitter patter of rain on your shutters 
I came back to tell you imperfection was my obsession

In the sobering hours, I realize this is all just a reversal of roles
And maybe it was what I was thinking at the time 
But in that peaceful serenity of screams I went blind
And my tears fell like rain from the sky 
My voice swelled and crack in steady time 
In this instance I saw the light 
Far off in the distance at the end of the rail line
I wish I could conjure up a lie 
Like it was dust in my eye

But I’m too busy singing 
About an empty shore line 
A misplaced memory tossed into the sea
And all that I’ve hoped to have forgotten 
Has gotten itself incapsuled in a line
Of some depressing song that I’m inclined to keep singing 
But after the rains the black rose will emerge 
And purge from my heart every haunting memory
Because the power of the mind is worthless 
If it is not producing fiction to soothe the quiet addiction of the heart
I hope everyone will see that the suffering
Is universal and it’s a course for all of us to bare

Night

night falls
wounded by the days' plight

night consumes
all the hopeful fractured splinters of light

night recedes
into its desolate lair

night extinguishes
the roaring furnace of despair

night hides
from a bubbling desire reaching out to feel

night flees
leaving the jilted to bow down and kneel

night soars
breaking the chains of isolation

night rots
in the cellars of time's vacuum of desolation

night devours
the travails of the day that has past

night mends
the wounds that once were doomed to last

night returns 
faithfully as the day must retire

night settles
the doomed voices that mutter and conspire
night consoles
the weary mind and the restless heart so torn
night placates
knowing that night itself is darkest just before a new dawn

so

night freezes
all snapshots of the passing day

as

night embraces
the new while the old simply fades away

And it Was Good

I still remember you.

No matter how far I get,
halfway across the world or not;
whether or not it's been two whole years,
two long years where so very much has changed;
doesn't make a lick of difference.
Damn, I still remember us.

Just last week, on a day
when the rain fell on our group
as we examined relics of the past,
a little of my own shone through
as I described to a fellow
our first kiss.

He talked about how he liked rainy days,
because when they came around 
he used to go to his girl
with flowers and watch movies,
and it was great.

This reminded me, gloriously,
of how, on a day much like that,
when the rain made anything possible
and you glowed;
how we went in my front yard to stand beneath it.

And how you hopped, skipped, and danced,
seemingly on the wet air,
laughing lightly as you did -
how, then, I simply had to have a kiss from you,
and it was magic.

Just a few days ago, I examined my life,
and how my parents are proud of me.
They've been for some time, and it's only grown now,
with my job and the distance.

In that, I thought of what my father sacrificed,
for my brothers and me,
part of the reason I've walked the path I have.

This reminded me, wistfully,
of a time when he knew I despaired,
over being suddenly bereft of you -
and he took me for a drive.

He let me vent, let me discuss you;
let me show him with words
some of the memories that to this day
dance behind my eyes.

He let me talk about how down I was,
first discovered my poetry;
half of it, at that time, about you.
He let me go on and on, and gave his advice,
and it was great.

You see, even where I am now,
even though it's been so long;
even though I've been over this for some time -
even though I swore I wouldn't do it again;
I still remember us.

I still feel connected.

It's infinitely different now,
and feels more like an old friend
with some special caveats
and very special memories,
than any yearning for us again.

You and I;
hard to describe.

It was short-lived, but hard-hitting;
like the raging tempest that passes
faster than breath, faster than thought -
awesome.

All I hope is one day, for something so wondrous
to exist once more, for each of us;
whoever it ends up being.

Don't mistake my intentions -
this isn't a letter of longing for a love, a life long lost.
It's just a letter.

A letter remembering what you may or may not,
what I do;
what has passed.

It was good.

The Deluge

The Deluge.

finally the deluge

skipping in rhythmic heartbeats
the softly sprinkling rain

hums and lulls and cajoles and comforts
the weary evening
 
glistening leaves
on beaming trees
 
blades of grass shimmer
like rough diamonds strewn about
 
and settling in my heart
is the softly lilting touch
of peace
of truth
 
of the rain clearing away
the debris of this passing day

The Falling: Part II

Thats all she needs.
She desperatly wants his strong, protective arms to wrap around her and sheild her from this cruel world, this world that has broken her.
She desperatly needs him to whisper to her the words that would set her free.
That everything will be ok, and that he won't ever leave,
Like the many times before, where she would lie in his arms for hours
just listening to him breath in and out. His steady heartbeat playing its beautiful composition in her ear. The most signifigant sound in her world. 
She drops to her knees, pulling her drentched hair from its roots,
Screaming at the heavens.
"WHY?!"
The heavens respond with a loud bellow,
shaking the earth beneath her.
She knows the truth.

Yet she refuses to accept it.

The pouring rain continues to fall.
She continues to break.

He does not exist.
Not anymore.
He never did.

She wanted it too much.
She wanted to feel love.
She wanted to feel human.
She wanted to feel the unconditional need to be with another person,
and have that feeling returned with equal amounts of passion.

Was it too much to ask for?
Is it too much to ask for?

She can not move.
The rain starts to freeze mid air,
violently pelting her exposed body, leaving red marks as proof.
She does not care.
She can not feel.

The heavens cry out to her, begging her to get up, 
To get help.
She refuses.
All she needs is him.
Who ever He is...
Where ever He is...
She will wait.
Wait for all of eternity if need be.
She will wait for the unconditional love.
For that unruly passion that burns in both of their souls.
She waits for the man who was designed to love her,
to need her the same way she needs him.
Forever.
She waits for the man who cannot live without her warmth,
her touch. 

And with that,
She slowly, unwillingly pushes herself off the muddy pavement,
permitting herself one final glance at the angry sky,
catching a glimpse at her diamond among coal
Her only friend in the wake of night.
The moon.
"Save me, my angel...Save me."
she whispers towards the sky, allowing a tiny smile to dance across her pale, desolate face
Before returning back to her throne in her cold, abandon dungon, her in lonly, abandon castle.

Feeling a new emotion she's never felt before.

Hope.

Hope shoots across her sky like a metor.
Shinning so bright, filling her with warmth that blinds her.
The heavens cry out,
Relief.
He will find her one day.
And she will be waiting. 

[.Because Falling in love, Is giving someone the power to break you.]

Carefree

I leave my window open, I 
stand in the rain... cry.
I wish I could throw a rope outside
so I could go outside and dance in the rain...
cry my tears...
The tears of joy and of sadness, but it won’t matter 
because the they will be washed away anyway.

I will laugh, smile, think of you...
And of you rejection.
But I won’t care...
It’s as if the rain washed all my cares away
like the chalk drawing on the floor, or my tears.

I’ll let you come in again just as the rain falls through 
my window... I will be as content and happy as I am
Dancing, Singing, Crying and Laughing...

I TRUST, YOU'LL REMAIN FAITHFUL TO ME...

The warm spring rain is a steady downpour 
 on this foggy eight- wheeler
parked by a dark highway seen from nowhere, 
as I hold and softly caress
your glowing photograph in my hands;
this wish seems impossible,
and imagining you next to me...
brings me closer to reality!

I trust, you'll remain faithful to me...
and mark down another empty day,
making you restless and insecure;
all in all, I am the same man you adored!

My feet trudge into the deep sand...    
making me wish that there was more
to life than this useless sorrow;
I have loved you and been proud of it,
and I hope to make you the happiest...
when all this comes to an end! 

I trust, you'll remain faithful to me...
as I am faithful to you to this day;
to give up everything we gave and felt...
would be none other than foolishness!

The spring rain has stopped coming down,
a patch of blue is seen though the bright clouds;
at least, my hope isn't completly gone...
that's  a good sign for a guy who only wished once!

Absolute Love

Through the rain that falls thick as milk,
I see a face of a girl as she lurks.
Sad and alone trugging along,
I wonder what could have went wrong.
I approached her ever so slightly
As not to startle her blindly.
I said 'are you okay?' and she looked up at me,
With sadness in her eyes as she shivered ever so slightly.

She said, 'I'm alright just trying to get home',
'As my boyfriend left me here all alone.'
I asked, 'How could someone abonded such beauty?'
And she blushed and said you're such a sweetie.

So I drove her home through the rain storm,
And she talked about her love of storms.
I shared my love for them as well
And we giggles about it all the way home.

I asked for her number and she smirked,
And I told her how I would treat her much better than that jerk.
She wrote it down and said you better give me a call,
And I smiled and said you're such a doll.

That night was the night I seen true love,
For all these years we stayed,
In absolute love.

Soft Rain Drops

Soft raindrops fall like dew drops upon the grass
As I walk wearily down my street with this heavy load alone
No, it’s not a nature walk, but a walk to clear my head
Because he’s not free to take a walk, I walk for him and me
In hope, the rain will wash away the pain for him, I feel
Suffering shared, so easily conveyed, by the tears I shed
But soft rain walks with me out here 
And gently kisses my face
Camouflaging my flowing tears

Yet, as I come 'round the bend to my front door,
My leaden spirit slowly rising  
I see my rose bush thriving with  
Remarkable abundance of buds!
Soft raindrops fall, like dew upon the grass
Gently kissing each bud in view
I smile and I realize that like the beautiful rose
Out of this pain we will grow
For God sends soft raindrops to ease growing pain

When It Rains

Each day as I get older
My memory starts to fade
I softly touch your pillow
On the bed where you once laid

I gently trace your photograph
You dressed as my bride
They're in my mind but hard to find
Memories that try to hide

But when it rains I see you
You're as real as you can be
Like the time we stood and watched it rain
Beneath that willow tree

We stood out there for hours
As the rain came pouring down
Me in my rented tux
And you in your evening gown

The rain somehow clears my mind
And it seems like yesterday
You told me that you had to leave
And I was begging you to stay

It's been twenty years since you've been gone
And only a piece of you remains
But in my mind, you're here with me
Everytime it rains

light of sadness

My soul pours out of my heart,
Along with the rain that pours from the sky.
A hollow feeling grows from inside,
But I just lay here and feel I will die.
The rain hits my face,
Making reality stay close.
My cold, beating heart slows,
And my breathing almost goes.
I start to fade,
Out of this life I once knew.
Feeling everything leave me,
As I count my last heart beats,
Four, three and two…
Then the clouds are empty,
And the raining stops.
The moon shines down
Making my heart drop.
This feeling i forgot is now returning,
I open my eyes and remember,
Just how beautiful the moon is.
I no longer have to remember to breath,
And my heart is racing inside of me.
The day I thought would be my last,
Turned out to be the day all my pain has past.

Everytime it Rains

Every time it rains...
I remember summer nights and feel your pain.
Clouds form under Angel's eyes,
They cradle you inside their wings.
Tear drops fall with prayers,
I'd give anything to start this over.

It appears I'm sleeping with the light on again.
(so alone, trapped inside that room)
Company shining from behind the lamp shade.
(and it feels no ones coming home.)
Lost inside that garden,
(Blood letters, scribed in solitude.)
Turning to that fractured looking glass.
(hoping for some clarity.)
Could I possibly look back?
( My lord the wolves are chasing me!)

Gray skies break once more,
Revealing sorrow through open wounds.
We've built our lives on blind chance,
A guess on which door to open next.
For now everyone is locked.

You've been a thousand miles away before,
You returned with spring.. The memories..
I will never again lose sight of the flowers,
I once saw bloom in your embrace.
Like the dreams when you showed me how to feel alive.
(I saw visions of the future, I could swear I saw you standing there)
Bringing in the morning sun with a rose in your hair.
( I saw beauty in the shape of a smile)

Remembering an angellic face,
I saw you walk through the front door,
but I'm still waiting for your return.
I've written all these songs for you.
(are you still a few words away?)
So many nights we've shared before.
(Please don't tell me every one was spent in vain)
After all I've wrote this song for you.

I would take the sun from my sky and place it above yours,
even if it burned like hell putting it there.
And I'd pretend it didn't hurt,
Just so I didn't interrupt your smile.
I'd do anything to say I tried,
Even if i was blind.
The truth is i did nothing.
(You showed me love through your heart holding mine)

I would change if you told me I could breathe,
My lungs forget to work every time I try.

The Falling: part I

Noise. 

Loud noise.

but it was not just noise, no, not to her.
It was the wild cries from the heavens, calling out to her, reassuring her that everything will be ok, that there is somebody out there who understands, who is just like her.
She emerges from her throne, in her cold, abandon dungon, in her lonly, abandon castle where she is kept prisoner. Kept prisoner from her dreams, her temptations, herself.

Serenity.
Bliss.

The scent stunns her.
Memories from her former life proceed to play like a movie in her memory...
a movie that she can not pause, can not forget.
She stumbles, -afraid to move for the thought that this magical moment may dissapear if she becomes too hasty- to her only escape.
Destroying the barriers that stand in her path.

Ice cold.
Refreshing.
The tiny rain drops fall from the sky,
releasing her temporarily from her own personal hell.
From judgment.
From criticism.
From the abandonment that overpowers her.

Lifting her pale, desolate face to the sky
she lets the rain wash away...
Wash away the hate
Wash away the pain
Wash away the lonliness
Wash away her...in the end.

She cries.
No one would notice, the rain unselfishly disguises her pain so any on lookers would assume that the moisture is just from the malicious storm.
The wind.
So rude, so loud, whips past her.
Attempting to knock the fragile being to the ground.
But she is strong, stronger than she thinks.
She is not phased by it's attempt.
Mother nature is kind.
The heavens cry out again,
begging the young girl to remember, to be happy.
But she cannot.
She can't breath.
She can't think.
Her heart stopped beating a long time ago.
Stopped dead in her lonly, broken chest,
and the heavens cannot understand why

No one can.
But no ones ever tried.
Suddenly, the vicious winds attack her once more,
this time getting a reaction.
A violent tremmor shakes her body
raising goosebumbps on her skin.
She barely notices.
Her imagination runs free, 
unleashing all her memories, all her former happiness.
They all consist of Him.....

Deluge

You’re the dark cloud that hovers over me,
Blocking out the sun, leaving no light to see,
Bringing down the rain to drown, you cry,
Burying me under the earth’s lifeless sky.

Your nothingness consumes my heart,
Beginning at the end, ending at the start,
Leaving everything lost in my mindless thought,
Drowning my eyes with your endless drought.

Your waterless rain overwhelms my breath,
Leaving no room for pain or death,
Disappearing into life’s infinite air,
Feeling no hope, you’re gone, the despair.

You’re the one I miss, the only one I love,
Flying beyond reach, come back my perfect dove.

1:23 am

Afraid of the rain, I don’t want to be... I’ve emptied Pandora’s Box on my bed.
It’s 1: 23 and I didn’t mean to do it. How could I do it again?
 How stupid you must be…
I just want to cry, I don’t want get out bed, but I do.
 Because I was ready for once in my life…devastated, strung-out.

I looking at the compact, I see the rain out of my mirror. I'm strapped to an image, 
of something that was foraged. 
I just wanted to love you again. Wanted to be pure in someone eyes. 
I’ve soled my soul for it, 
A zombie, machinery that’s in love with you.

Seeing you from cross the platform, kissing and hugging, someone that should 
be me,
Was it me? 
Its 1:23, my heart just stopped, figuring it’s figment of my imagination. Who would 
have known? Who would have believed? 
It’s 1:23 and I’m hurt, and I think everybody knows. I can’t close my heart, 
I tried to see this optimistically.
“I’ll just wait for him to come around”, but the rain is coming now.

Mixing ebony skin, so much he and she became invisible, 
I’m creditable, and it’s not enough for you anymore,
Look at all that rain! Watching the ground flood through my clouded eyes,
In the middle of storm, it’s 1:23, walking off the platform, down the stairs,
With your love as a painful memory, that the frightful rain is my only friend.

Rain

A glance through the broken glass,
Gray skies pour endless rain.
The storm will eventually surpass,
But it will leave a colorless stain.

Drowning in the cold rain,
A breath of air breaks away.
This storm I’ll never ascertain,
And still I’m left in disarray.

The water cleanses the land,
It burns a hole through the sand.
In this rain you somehow stand,
Something I still can’t understand.

I sink in this downpour,
It will never be the same.
It will rain until it can’t no more,
The light of day will soon reclaim.

Bury The Dead

The rain pours down my face while lights flash in the distance

Among the ones once living, I choose the path of most resistance

Blood, sweat, tears, and rain mix as I grasp the wooden sentencer

Condemning to eternity the demons while my hands endure the splinters. 

 

The moon has left me, I’m alone on my mission

The clouds bear down with rain relentless

But I must press on to be set free

And bury the dead that dwells in me

 

Digging and digging but no hole deep enough

To be rid of these skeletons with time that got tough

And hardened with hate, vile, and discourse

To infect my being with no remorse

 

Pain shoots through my chest as my breath becomes ragged

The time is near but there is no casket

No viewing, no service, just a body and a grave

In this place called the land of the free and the home of the brave

 

No more shall my dreams and my life be altered

My visions are now clear and my step un-faltered

You have lived on way past your prime

And now I must say that you are out of time

 

I dig further until I reach satisfaction 

And as I throw me in, my face no reaction

I stand on the side as my face looks back up at me

I say a silent prayer and mouth R.I.P.

 

My body looks up back at me expressionless and cold

I throw on more dirt like it was foretold

That I would be burying the dead and living anew

And starting a new path without you

 

My body remains still as I continue to bury it

Knowing that a part of me will no longer be cherished

More tears come as I realize what’s done

But continue to move for I must move on

 

As I pat down the last of the dirt

The skies clear up to wash away the hurt

The moon looks down and says, “Job well done”

I look back at the moon and ask, “Now may I come”

 

The moon just smiles and begins to fade

And the sun comes in to usher in a new day

I pick up my shovel and walk back down the road

Fatigue on my mind but new light in my soul.

Roses of a Tear Drop

I was given this rose
to put an end to these endless tears
He told me he loved me
instead he shoved me around
thinking I’m supposed to stick around
I was given a rose not out of love
such as compassion
but out of hurt and tears
Roses of a Tear Drop

The rain had begun to fall
struck a petal
as he watches it begin to fall
Didn’t bother trying to pick it up?
just look at it and step right over it

The rain that fell
Were my teardrops?
he watched me fall
and didn’t bother picking me up
He just looked at me all drowned in pain
Later on realizing he lost in the game
He gave me roses of a tear drop
not a rose out of love
such as someone to have compassion for
but given me a rose out of his hurt
and thinking I supposed to forgive him

Roses of A Tear Drop

Black Rain

As I stand out side in the pouring black rain
Off go the soldiers marching the same
Splashing their black boots in puddles that day
As I watch my daddy as he goes away

I scream his name as I wave good bye
Momma held brother and began to cry
Daddy looks back and waves with a whisper, good by my little angel I love you.
As families say good bye to their loved ones I say daddy I love you too

 As the soldiers march on through black rain
Cherishing the last moments hiding their pain
As the rain falls into night
I watch my daddy and I can’t see him in sight

As the eagle soars through the sky
Watching the days go by and by
Our flag still stands for freedom
Home will remain our kingdom

As black rain falls in the fields 
Soldiers fighting holding up their shields
Brave men risking their lives 
Can’t wait to get home to their children and their wives

Black rain rolling down daddy’s face
Moving through battle with steady pace
When battle was over and men were dead
Soldiers came home and tears were shed

As I run to my daddy, the warmth of his embrace
I missed you daddy.  I love you grace
Momma ran out with brother in hand
Jumped into daddy’s arms, there we stand

But remember our soldiers 
Fighting brave like warriors 
Families love and hope is their only gain
These are our soldiers in black rain.

Old Man of The Land ( dedicated to Sid Grey born 19 ? died 1996 R.I.P )

When Sid first met me he laughed 
Sat in his seat of an old Ford 135 
Tractor red rust and wet sticking mud
Swathed in a great green rain coat
A friendly laugh he said
“Bet you wish you hadn’t come here now”

My first day working on his farm
I stood in the rain waiting
I must have looked a pitiful sight
He eyed me, but not unkindly
Removed a minuscule hand rolled cigarette 
From the corner of his mouth
Peered at it 
Then to my surprise stuck it back between his lips and lit it

Sid’s face had been carved from an old tree root
Looked as if he'd been born that way
Brown gnarled lined with years
Below grey brows his eyes smiled
Bright and clear

A dismal wet and mud plied day
Sid taught me how to coax his tractor
Through ruts and puddles of sticking clay
Next day we progressed to bigger wheeled monsters
Finally just five days after
I stepped up to the great green yellow John Deere

“There you go she’s all yours, patted the wheel
“Check the oil every day, the water, you know where to get your diesel
I thanked him
“Don’t thank me lad just make sure I get it back in one piece”

We worked together in the season passing
For six years at each seasons beginning
Found me there waiting

Wasn’t much for talking old Sid
Wasn’t much for working either
Between innumerable smoke breaks
Tea breaks, sandwich breaks, break breaks
And other breaks 
The job was done on time

“There’s always time he’d say, if we don’t finish tomorrow
We’ll finish another day

A Sid break
Sid must've fancied a chat
Munching sandwiches
He patted the soil next to him 
Like some beloved old sheep dog
“I love the land he said, worked on it all my life
This must’ve been true 
He knew every solution to any predicament 
Any job in motion could throw at you 

“These days, he continued 
People want to squeeze as much out of her as they possibly can, 
Shook his head, no respect for the land;
You gotta look after her, don’t and the ground just dies; 
Aint no use chucking all them chemicals on it,
You can’t feed it like that, 
chewed on the butt of his cigarette
They’re gonna drain her dry someday.”

I nodded, no comment was needed or wanted
But to my surprise from the corner of his eye
The wet trickle of a tear

That was Sid Grey, old man of the land
Earth in his blood
Soil in his hand
A whole University of knowledge went lost unnoticed
The day he passed away

He patted the soil next to him
“I love the land, worked on it all my life
and with a chuckle he smiled
An’ I’ll be buried in it someday”

Falling Asleep

Watching TV with the volume turned down
Your asleep on my shoulder wearing your night gown
Your fingers are interlaced with mine 
On the table there's an empty bottle of wine
Outside the rain pelts the glass
You subconsciously squeeze my hand as we wait for it to pass
A thunderstorm in the middle of spring
You're not used to this kind of thing
You start to shake and i bring you close into my chest
I hold you tight, hoping you would get some rest.
You wake up and i get the ice cream
and we talk about what we dream
We talk about what we love and what we fear
We talk about the things we hold dear
we talk about life and love
and the things up above
We talk until we fall asleep to the hum of rain 
and we hold each other and keep sane.

Here Comes The Rain

Here Comes The Rain
by Cate Rock

Here comes the rain again.
It washes down like a flood,
Here comes the hope again,
Watch out for the slippery mud,

Let me run again,
Run far away,
Let my wings fly open,
I pray...

Let my broken wings take flight.
Fly out on the lake around midnight.
Let me love again 
My dear Raven...

Here comes the rain 
Falling from the sky.
Whips away the tears that i am forced to cry 
those sweet teardrops from the sky

I shall not live another day,
For drought's threating my wonderful mist of May.

Here comes my chance again to fly out in the night.
when tear drops cover me out on my flight.

Love raining down on my Raven to be...
Rain drop love has a another love for me.

The moon tears cover me in a flood of pure passion.
The cover and in gulp me in a old way but the new fashion.

THE STAR UP IN MY SKY

With every bit of lightening and all the rain that falls
the winds that blow with fierce pride like the storm it seems to call
I know that when its over I can look up toward the sky
and see that precious star twinkling in my eye

I have but little time to do what I want to do
it seems even shorter when I spend it with you
When I speak the words "I love you" rest assured that's what I mean
Each day you're fulfilling another piece of  my dream

When dusk begins to settle in and the sun begins to fade
and darkness brings about a lonely escapade
I sit upon a little rock and look up toward the sky
and see that precious star twinkling  in my eye

You know that star is only you that's brightened every day
and every night it's shining in a bold and noble way
It brings about a peace so delicate inside
a very subtle way of saying it's going to be alright

With every bit of lightening and all the rain that falls
the winds that blow with fierce pride like the storm it seems  to call
I know that when it's over I can look up toward the sky
and see that precious star twinkling in my eye

Another Rain Soaked Letter

Another rain soaked letter
Delivered to the woman in black boots...
The much awaited package.
Eager hands tear the envelope
Parchment is hastily unfolded.
More than a letter
A statement of love meets her eyes.
Ink is soaked by salty tears...
Emotion poured through a pen.
From the text,
She hears his voice.
Through the words,
She feels his breath...
Pressed against her ear,
He is with her again.
She pulls the letter to her chest
Sobbing deep...
Another rain soaked letter
And the distance melts.
Another tear soaked parchment,
And somehow she knows...
Everything is going to be okay....

The soul that's still alive in me

My mom is dying
And me in front of her
I sit and cry 
The tears of endless pain..

My mom is dying 
And me fondling her hair
 with love, 
whispering to her ears 
that everything 
is going to be fine,
although I know it’s not..

my mom is dying
and me standing out there 
under the violent rain 
blaming God for 
taking her away from me..

my mom is dying 
and me contemplating
the pain that’s surrounding 
her heart..

my mom is dying 
and me hearing her 
utter to 
god to keep me safe 
and take her away soon..



my mom is dying
and me watching
the tears of sadness 
sinking in her lifeless eyes..

my mom is dying 
and me listening to her 
uttering to me her words:
“ don’t live your life miserable 
When am gone, 
Don’t leave the pain
Kill my heart up there
When I watch you cry, 
Live my life.
Live my life and keep going, 
Erase your past 
And write your future.
I’ll be taken away from this world 
But not from your heart, 
Not from your soul.
I love you my daughter, 
I love you..”

Sitting by the window
Watching the ray of thunder 
Hit the ground..

Sitting by the window
Listening to the drops of rain 
Fall..

Sitting by the window
Contemplating the darkness
Of the dark..

Sitting by the window
Crying
Crying 
Crying..

Im lost 
And nobody can hear 
my silent scream..

im lost 
and nobody can see
my painful tears..

im lost 
im lost 
im lost..

I got her the chocolate 
She always loved 
I got her the rose 
She used to be
And put them by her grave..

Sitting by he grave 
Talking to her
 with constant tears..

sitting by her grave
whispering to her
my thoughts..

As a fish needs the sea
To stay alive,
I need her with me to live

As a baby needs his mother’s love
To feel safe,
I need her with me to live

As we all need happiness
To keep walking, 
I need her with me to live,
I need her with me 
To keep my heart going on..

Sitting by the window again
Listening to the silence
 of the dark..

sitting by the window again
contemplating
 our happy memories..

sitting by the window again 
asking god
to have mercy on her soul
and promising my mom
to make her always proud..

as I fall into my deep sleep
I utter my last words:
“ I love you mom.”

Unappreciated

Like the wind I am there but you do not see me
If I were to blow you away would your eyes still betray me?


Like great waters I flow, but yet you pay me no mind
Must I drown you for you to realize I'm alive? 


Like the ground you step all around me but you don't give a care
Must you fall to appreciate I was there?


Like the clouds I am always there but you seem unaware 
Should I make it rain upon you to make you look my way?


Like a fire I am so bright but you do not see my light
Must I burn you for you to feel that my love for you is real? 


No, I will not burn you
For nor wind nor great waters nor fire or rain could ever get you to look at me the same way as I see you everyday.

A new angel tonight

A new angel tonight 

Alone watching the waves 
 Tears in my eyes
Nothing more to do
As my heart slowly dies

Dark clouds came over
And cover the sun
But I didn’t notice 
Till the rain began

 Nowhere to shelter
 Just sat in the cold
 Missing her so much 
But she’s no longer in this world

Thunder and lighting
Mother Nature’s full might
Crashing down on me
Who is to weaken to fight?

See I give up on life 
A little while ago 
Try to keep it hidden
But still everyone know

She lived her live 
Giving to this world 
Now there are flowers
Covering her in a hole

 Doctors did their best
But it gives up on her today
I held her in my arms 
 And then her life slips away



How does life go on? 
When I can’t hear her voice
Don’t want to live alone
But I got no choice

Love can be so beautiful
And love can be so mean
How you go to sleep knowing
 You already lost your dream

In every one life 
 Little Rain must fall
And its time likes that 
You know who to call

There are   friends 
To bring sunshine instead
 Our invisible umbrella
That’s always over our heads

I lost the only girl I ever love
Darkness has covered my light
But in heaven there is 
A new angel tonight

Dream of Reality

Dreaming is like traveling to another world
We dont know where we are going
But we can't wait to get there 
It's a place where we can be free 
But we can also be a prisoner. 

It's a place where we have no fear
But where we find new ones 
It's a place where we can slay our dragons
But still come out with burns 
It's a place where we see ourselver as we do and dont want to be. 

It's a place where the good witch helps us home
But the wicked witch will knock us off the yellow brick road
It's a place full of magic 
It's a place where wonders happen 
But also where tragedy strikes. 

It's a place full of love 
But also of hate 
It's a place where the sun always shines 
And where the rain never stops 
Sound familiar? 

Our dreams are like reality 
There is love and hate 
There is good and evil 
There is rain and shine 
But reality is just part of life. 

We can make our reality whatever we want 
We can slay our dragons and we may come out with burns 
But our good witch will always help us home 
Tragedy will happen but wonders will never cease 
And we can be whoever we want. 

We can make our reality a dream 
And we can make our dreams a reality 
So open you eyes and dont be afraid to dream 
Because if you try hard enough 
You can make your life the dream you want it to be.

No Rules

The lights have gone out
Dark make up smeared across my face
Silence except for the voices echoing through my mind
Alone in the loneliest place
There's pieces of me I need to find

Feel the rain in my hair
I'm dead inside
Desiring a one night affair
Want to find someone to make me alive
Run your fingers through my hair
You'll break my heart but I don't have the sense to care

I should shut you out
But I'll let you in
I need to feel someone touch my skin
When you're lonely for so long 
There's no way to really win

No wrong or right
No rules
Not tonight
Just you and me til daylight

Feel the rain in my hair
I'm dead inside
Desiring a one night affair
Want to find someone to make me alive
Run your fingers through my hair
You'll break my heart but I don't have the sense to care

The morning afters my burden to bear
I know it
Like you too much for one night affair
But right now I just don't have the sense to care

No wrong or right
No rules
Not tonight
Just you and me til daylight

There's no rules
No such thing as wrong or right
Anything goes cause I'm lonely tonight

If Love Could Stop Time

If we were in love do you think time would pass us by
Freezing a sea of emotions in the sky
If we kissed would you see the deepest darkest corners of my soul
With your eyes slowly captivating pulling me inside of your being like a black hole
If I made a wish to the brightest star 
Would you understand my heart
Provide my spark
Would you feel me
Would you rain your beauty like rain drops
Tenderly evaporating the void ness in my heart
If we were in love would your smile shine brighter than the sun itself 
Helping to finds oneself
You have beauty that even the angels adore
Even God signals heaven screaming for an Encore
Right now our love is just an If
This poem never begun if our love was just a myth

-Much Love-

His tears fall like rain

His tears fall like rain when he sees her for that very first time.  
All he can do is whisper “I Love You.”

With trembling hands he reaches out to touch her face. 
 She is shaking as he lifts her eyes to his.  

He wipes a tear from her cheek as he looks in her eyes so blue,
And he knows without a doubt he has found his lonely heart in her.

He takes her warm body in his arms.  Runs his fingers through her  dark hair as she rests her 
head on his chest.  

The touch of her hand upon his heart feels like a bolt of lightning. 
He knows he has found his angel he has so desperately looked for all his life.

She looks at him in a way he only dreamed of, never believing he would find it. 
He lifts her chin and touches his lips to hers. Fire courses through her body. 

He can feel her lean into him as he kisses her soft lips, tongues probing. 
She can feel his body grow hard against her. 

He slowly and tenderly undresses her, and her him.

His lips find the curve of her neck, and he hears her moan low and deep.

Her hands take his face and kiss it all over, gently, and barely.  The touch of her breath on his 
skin drives him wild.

He runs his fingers over every soft and sensuous curve of her beautiful body.  His lips linger 
here and there to savor every last taste of her, every last drop of her, and every smell that is her. 

He gently lays her down. Her long glorious hair spilling all around him. He sees in her eyes what 
his heart has been blind to.  

He feels in her touch all he needs to know that his heart has found hers. 

He kisses her, passionately, hard, deep as she bites his lip. She feels him plunge deep into her 
soul.   

With jagged breaths, they become one. 

And her tears flow like rain and all she can whisper is “I Love You.”

Like a Tulip

Tears from heaven 
wash me through
rinse me of my sins
sow them into sand
let me flow in the river 
let me merge with the sea
or soak me in the seed
let my love blossom in her 
like a tulip that never wilt

The Rain

The rain was my friend
I loved it
The way it streamed down my face, tracing my smile
As it drips completely to the earth
I loved the feel of it falling on my head
The sound when I was drifting to dreamland in my bed
But now, I don't love it anymore
You loved it
You still do
But then you told me, "I don't love you anymore"
I can't love the rain anymore.
My tears are now the rain streaming down my face.

Adverse Camber

It was not expected, this diversion. Being uncommon of a type
And truly off the beaten track; the windscreen wipers wipe
Away the sheets of marmalade rain unremittingly,
Their sweeping swipe at drizzled prisms swept incessantly.

The sun, it emerged, again without expectation. Light fractured cloud
Sparkling off the bonnet of the car; the rays avowed
To turn the moisture into steam, and did so spectacularly,
The haze and mist ploughed the fields of density.

She was picked up on the hard shoulder. Somewhere north of despair,
I recall, and hitched a ride beside me; the rain still glittered in her hair,
And her eyes the shade of bluebells fluttered beautifully,
Her cheeks so fair, lips the pinkest, moistest frames of destiny.

I had given hope a vacant backseat. Yet the road’s adverse camber can shift,
Can tilt and alter time and travel; and though the king of drifting may still drift,
Fractional increments serve to lift directional gravity,
So one correction of the wheel reacquaints with love’s vitality.

Alone

As I lie here
Listen to the rain falling
All I can feel is alone
As I cry
I knew one day
I would find you
One day
I know you want to hold me
In your arms
Smiling across my face
I know your smiling too
You and I know that we
Belong together
The rain keeps falling
I will cry and remain alone

The Manisfestation

If you believe,  that love is true , it will be  waiting there for you,
Then open wide your heart, inside there is love you've kept warm,
Heart to heart, and woman to man,
If you look at her from head to toe you will see,
The woman you made her to be,
She weathered the storm of envy
The rain has caused her grief,
Inside her heart, she believed the rain would end,
She clung to that hope,  but the world wanted more,
She was abrased by it's greed,
When you look into her eyes you will see,
The tears form, and she will cry,
She knows the beauty of  the love inside, it will manifest,
Then she will savor it's sweetness,
She's been showered many times,
She'll hear your voice hushed in the darkness,
She'll remember speaking softly in your ear,
She'll remember needing you close,
Giving her love to you was her choice,
Reach out and touch her hand, she'll need you to,
She'll grip your's tightly to let you know she approves,
Her pride will not stand in the way,
Like two children at love you'll play,
Her friendship was yours many days,
Then you'll place, your arm around her shoulder,
The many hours you shared in each others arms,
Were countless,  and then onward your arm falls to her waist,
If she lets your love inside you will place,
Your hand upon her head then the tears she's held inside you'll shed,
when they subside you'll be as humble as the lamb,
Your mouth will touch her mouth,
You  rescued her from the darkness,
And from the evils of a greater sin,
As love will know best, 
Your hand will explore her body,
For your heart wants to know,
That the jealousy of darkness has not, harmed what you intended to love,
You'll kiss her breast with warm sweet kisses,
Carnal knowledge will be warm, 
You'll touch where her love , and yours colide,
As you enter her body which is the temple,
Sacred for her man alone, 
your love will melt inside her,
As woman and a man you'll become as one...

In Loving Memory

She’s looking out the window,
watching the rain fall down,
while all her hopes,
are being drowned,
while her heart,
is being broken.

She takes a deep breath,
and climbs out her window.
She wanders for a little while,
wondering what she’ll find.
Then, she sits,
in the middle of the road,
and gazed into the sky,
and watches the rain fall down on her.

She’s so amazed,
she didn’t see it coming,
a unknown bullet,
went right through her head.
I guess you could say,
it was a last request.

The next day,
three more suicides,
were committed.
But all of them,
left notes drenched in blood,
clutched in their hand,
they read:
“In Loving Memory Of All Those Kids Who Had To Go Through High school With No Friends.”

Love In The Rain

Swirling and dancing with rain in my hair,

Acting like I don’t have a care.


Whispering winds swiftly blow me around,

I look in your eyes and know I am found.


Watching the treetops, dance their sweet dance,

Seeing you look up, smile, and glance.

 
The flowers are blooming all around us,

The rainbow appears as just another plus.

 
We fall to the ground, the grass on our backs,

The sky looks down on us and does its acts.


The clouds fly by, without a care in the world,

As they curl around, all fluffy and swirled.

 
The moon greets the sun as they share the same sky,

For only moments until they say their ‘goodbye’.

 
I look over at you, a smile on your face,

Are you looking at me or am I just in space?

 
I smile back at you as you leaned toward my lips,

The softness of yours touches mine, as your hands hold my hips.

 
The rain pours down still, yet neither of us care,

In an embrace that nobody ever could tear.

 

The feeling you bring is like nothing I’ve felt,

It’s like a drug, so warm I could melt.

 
The rain finally stops, the rainbow stays high,

Our lips pull apart, unwillingly, as we look towards the sky.

 
The moon escapes finally, from the depths of the clouds,

It looks down upon us through all the crowds.


I look in your eyes, and know you’ll always be mine,

The way you look and feel, nothing else could ever be so divine.


I will love you forever, no matter what will occur,

You are my one and only, the one I will always prefer.

It Reminded Me Of You

...and the rain came down
Hard     Wet     Wet
It reminded me of you
you always tasted like the rain


...and the wind rushed in
Swirled     Soft     Soft
It reminded me of you
you always sounded like the wind


...and the cloud drifted by
Vanished     Away     Away
It reminded me of you
you always felt like the cloud


...and the sun kissed the day
Full     Hot     Hot
It reminded me of you
It reminded me of you

It reminded me of you

Can't Stand the rain.

Cant stand the rain It feeds the pain of me looking forward to sleeping with out 
you once again. O how the pain shine when it rain I thought we were more than 
lovers and the best of friends yet I'm alone and crying again. All I want is to 
express my hurt and hope that you regret all your double dealing dirt. But every 
time I try to forgive I remember your anger and all your ill will.

Love,Sick,Madness

I dreamed of you last night,we were running through the forest and laughing with 
the trees.The rain started to pour as we slowly slipped into madness,our clothes 
were soaking wet as we ran faster to seek some kind of safe haven.The rain is 
so beautiful but it also makes me sick.The night echoed with strange sounds as 
haunting images moved around,the ground started to consume us as we leaped 
to the trees,the evil was stirred so we had to leave.We were running with the 
night and chasing the storm away ,into the night ,deep into the night we started to 
fade.

Clouds

Have you ever looked up and wondered why?
That the clouds floating high in the sky
Seem to know your emotions as they fly by.

Like when you loose a loved one which makes you sad and cry 
They rain non stop and it seems they’ll never run dry.
Or when you’re lonely unloved, feeling blue,
They tend to stay grey and not rain is it just me or is it true?

Sometimes you don’t seem to care any more,
They float in cotton balls on the winds at heaven’s door
But when you happy, joyous and full of play
The sun tends to shines because the wind has blown them away.

Next time look up and see if it’s true
When you happy, crying or just feeling blue.

Roses of a Tear Drop

                                                   I was given this rose
                                     to put an end to these endless tears.
                                                He told me he loved me,
                                        instead he shoved me around
                                 thinking I'm supposed to stick around.
                                     I was given a rose not out of love
                                                 such as compassion 
                                                but out of hurt and tears
                                                 Roses of a Tear Drop.

                                            The rain had begun to fall,
                                                        struck a petal, 
                                            as he watch it began to fall. 
                                         Didn't bother to try to pick it up 
                                just looked at it and stepped right over it.

                                                     The rain that fell
                                                    was my teardrops,
                                                   he watched me fall,
                                         and didn't bother to pick me up.
                                 He just looked at me all drowned in pain.
                                   Later on, realizing, he lost in the game.
                                      He gave me Roses of a Tear Drop,
                                                  not a rose out of love
                                 such as someone to have compassion for,
                                but giving me a rose out the pain he caused
                                    and thinking Im supposed to forgive him.
                                                 Roses of a Tear Drop.

Red Devil's Rain

These tears keep plunging down my face, I call it Red Devil’s rain.
This rain symbolizes agony, and sheltered pain.
These tears are not perceptible to others, but only to the one who bears the 
name.
Which is engrave in his heart, and impressed in his brain.

I call it, Red Devil’s Rain

I can feel it rolling down my soul’s face.
Caused by an unhappy case.
Sticking my tongue to catch a drop, already knowing the colic taste.
That falls on the floor, and evaporates in a near by place.

I call it, Red Devil’s rain

Down pouring from head to toe.
No one sees it, so, I wonder where does it go.
I know it’s not gone, because I can still feel the blow.
Drip drop, the rain continues to flow.

I call it, Red Devil’s rain

Unable to make it stop, Red Devil’s rain continues to fall.
Stress becomes my incarceration, and my heart crumples in to a ball.
Unable to assist it, or keep it from hitting the wall.
Life becomes nothing more, or nothing less, than a rainy windfall.

I call it Red Devil's Rain

Love is Deceit

The imprudent wind has ceased his movement,
The unsympathetic rain has dried the thriving soil,
The moon, so bright, increased it’s earthbound light,
The world has been covered in the remaining shadows.

Call upon the angels, you believed in as a child,
You’You will feel nothing but a cruel emptiness,
A malicious joke the religious has forced upon you,
Nobody can help the world of today.

Love was once the tribute to a life lived,
Now it’s a headstone, a grave, an end.
Love is now heartless to the needs of you,
In your future, lay vacant lands and broken dreams.

You can lust for me, but I won’t lust for you,
Love has taken most of us prisoners, 
Confined to that one whose memories are inescapable,
You’re lost, lonely, forgotten ambitions are shattered.

Climb to the top, where you might find refuge,
Peer over the edge to see how extreme your fall will be,
You feel the wind start up, the rain starts to descend,
The moon disappears and you are left in the darkness.

Try to find your feet in this mess of a place,
So close to the edge, you can feel the drop that awaits you,
Leering in the background is a shadow as you fall,
That shadow has a name, you just haven’t been introduced.

Love is a simple form of suicide, disguised as a pretty package,
Laying underneath the ribbons and bows is an unbound treachery,
You cannot be taught this, you unwillingly learn of it’s unkindness,
After it pushes you to your end … 

Then you realize you’You have always been forlorn,
Walking in a world of blind fools who continue to believe,
That love is a gift, love is a remuneration of dedication,
Love is nothing. Love is an evil progeny. Love is torture.

Love is a disillusioning lie.

For My Only Love

For my only love 
If I could write you a song 
it would be like rain 

It would fall gently 
upon your sweet heart and soul 
like dew on the grass 

The words would be soft 
as a wind chime on the breeze 
hanging from a tree 

And the melody 
would be the sound of bird song 
at the rise of morn 

The tempo would be 
that of rain dripping on leaves 
of the mighty oak 

All this I wish you 
If I could write you a song 
For my only love

A cyber lament

Ah Microsoft Word you tempt me
As I lay across my keyboard wrapped
In a red wine haze
My fingers lingering over the letters
Caressing the ‘L’ for ‘Love’
You speak to me silently
Tantalise me
Trip me up why don’t you? 
Trick me into spelling out a line
Which will come back in later times
To haunt me
Red wine words bleeding soft across your page
Dripping slowly down the screen

Seeing me
Seeing me
Like nobody else
Hearing my thoughts 
Like nobody else
Bringing me the world
Here, in my fashionable room
Here, in this cold grey city
The rain drips down my window pane
Again
Again
Again
Like the blood red wine 
Relentlessly scalding me
Scolding me
Hold me
Hold me
Holding me in your unblinking gaze
The rabbit caught in the headlights
Standing, bedazzled
Not knowing which way to run
So just standing, standing, standing.

There are warm memories melting through my
Red wine haze
Lucky days
Indian days and lazy days
And loves won and lost
And life goes on running in rivers
Of Red wine.
Ah Microsoft Word you tempt me…………………….

Deceit Of A Housewife


Light pours out through the open door,
As rain falls on the windows evermore.

Groans of pleasure reach my ears,
Confirming all my fears.

Movements in the bed,
Transcend my feelings from fear to dread.

Visions of their bodies two,
He is who?

Thrusts into my gleeful wife,
Stab my heart with steely knife.

The ending of our union here,
And yet she sheds not a single tear.

Papers signed and hearts broken,
Leave doors never again to be opened.

And as light pours out through the door,
The rain is falling evermore.

too short, too long

why do you haunt my mind in this infinity?
you pulverize my sanity 
bringing my knees weak and eyes close to tears
hopeless heart, breaking inside, can you hear the crackeling?
can you hear the snapping? first my mind has gone and now, you steal my heart
i want a refund. . . i want our love to be made pure. . . when you are only mine
i dont want to share. . . ever. . . i want us to be made pure
why can i not have you, why will you not be mine?
im slowly loosing my composure
you are hers, i will not accept this fact, can not
you are mine, i know it, through our skin touching
we made love, though forever was too short
your driving me insane, breaking me more each day
and yet i said id wait, am i insane!!?
now i musnt say that you must choose
me!! or her!!
i dont want an alternitive!
i want you to choose me
but i feel that you will not
and so i must wait
collect my patience
i must wait
collect my patience
i must wait
patience
raiin patience
teach myself patience
i must wait
today is dreary
the rain is falling slowly
today, can you leave her?
today, can you make it beatiful?
i would dance with you in the rain if we could
but now as i am in a different building you are so far away
but now, as you might loose katy, you are so far away
i dont want to wait
just take me or release me from yourself
just help
how can i wait
when i want you soo much
how can i wait when i need your touch
your eyes stare into mine
but can you see my hurt?
can you see my pain?
can you see my distress?
can you see my love masked by it all
can you see my death in the eyes of a crow
they foretell me in my dreams
can you save me?
dont make me wait?
forever is too long

WARM RAIN GUSHES FROM THE BRIGHT SKY

Warm rain gushes from the bright sky,
to free all clouds of their heavy weight
and nourish everything below...
even the dry beak of a sparrow;
we didn't ask for it and yet
it came unexpectadly
to end our physical thirst...
another reminder of mercy!

The thirsty crows invade  
the drenched meadows,
once so dried-out and yellowed,
to resemble an arid desert;
water sustains life on this planet...
and allowes the low rivers to overflow
when winter can't bring any snow;
then...is all hope useless?

There'll be lots of  beautiful flowers this spring,
even those silent bells will joyfully ring;
a brighter sun will radiate... 
illuminating our path until evening:
so much joy in our singing,
a perfect time to meditate!

Warm rain gushes from the bright sky,
surprise sparkles in the unbeliever's eyes;
doubts make us unhappy and weak...
considering the dark side of things!
Vision makes us soar above the awesome stars, 
while despair causes our souls to die!

Complete

Clap!
As the thunder rolls.....
Let the rain fall down on this sleepless night,
As the lightening strikes.
Youre afraid of this beautiful sight,
When the thunder rolls.....
You cuddle close,
And hide your tears,
As the lightening strikes.
You come to me,
Wanting comfort,
But in the end,
We become complete.
As the thunder rolls......
Let the rain fall down on this sleepless night,
As the lightening strikes,
Oh, were complete,
Well sleep fine...
Tonight......

The Fall

Gorgeous she looked playing with other angels,
Singing songs to the lord Almighty’s love,
Till she fell in love with a man and fell,
Without the wings of immortality.

Now he has left her rejected and deceived,
And I must choose between heaven and earth,
Fall away from my lord and masters grace,
To give her solace for I have loved her.

With faith in her love a kiss seals my fate,
I hold her in arms clinging with desire,
Within the parched land devoid of water,
Praying to God for his true divine mercy.

Hot winds blow away as rain drops clatter,
Drenched she opens her eyes to look at me,
Tears flow mingle with rain to flow together,
Now man and wife we learn to serve our Lord.

First Drop Of Rain

When the first drop of rain falls
you know I will be gone.
When the flowers start to bloom
I will be on my way.
Tell me, darling, years from now 
when the rain comes to fall,
would your memory of me linger,
would you still remember me?

You know I've been so lucky
for having known your love.
I've always loved you dearly,
believe me it is true.
But you see I just have to go
for the wind is calling me.
Let me kiss you one last time,
take this heart of mine.

When the first drop of rain falls
you know I will be gone.
When the flowers start to bloom
I will be on my way.
Tell me, darling, years from now 
when the rain comes to fall,
would your memory of me linger,
would you still remember me?

The days spent in the sunshine
are just but memories now.
The laughter we shared together
is all in the distant past.
Let's be thankful we had each other
for nothing in this world could last.
So let's make love one last time,
spread our wings and fly.

Dear rose,

A soft yet delicate rose I do see before me, I can still see a hint of pain from years 
gone by, yet the rose pedals still remain firm and unchanged, just a slight miss 
trust of the men that caused that rose so much pain...yet the rose remains 
closed before the rain falls that could make it blossom once again. Dear rose 
open up for me and let me water your dried stem and nourish you back too full 
health once again, so you can blossom into a full bloom in the morning sun? 
Once again the most beautiful rose in the garden again, open up and let the rain 
come in...no longer just a rose that stands alone I do share your pain. Now bask 
in the morning sun and quench your thirst from my rain.

reason to believe

I try to believe
that love has no reasons
sometimes a monsoon
and sometimes a dry season
let the rain begin
let the drought finally end
wrap yourself around
what's left of me
bury yourself here
inside of me
burrow under my skin
let the rain begin
let the drought finally end
bury your love here
inside of me 
give me a reason
a reason to believe

Black Rain

As I stand out side in the pouring black rain
Off go the soldiers marching the same
Splashing their black boots in puddles that day
As I watch my daddy as he goes away

I scream his name as I wave good bye
Momma held brother and began to cry
Daddy looks back and waves with a whisper, good by my little angel I love you.
As families say good bye to their loved ones I say daddy I love you too

 As the soldiers march on through black rain
Cherishing the last moments hiding their pain
As the rain falls into night
I watch my daddy and I can’t see him in sight

As the eagle soars through the sky
Watching the days go by and by
Our flag still stands for freedom
Home will remain our kingdom

As black rain falls in the fields 
Soldiers fighting holding up their shields
Brave men risking their lives 
Can’t wait to get home to their children and their wives

Black rain rolling down daddy’s face
Moving through battle with steady pace
When battle was over and men were dead
Soldiers came home and tears were shed

As I run to my daddy, the warmth of his embrace
I missed you daddy.  I love you grace
Momma ran out with brother in hand
Jumped into daddy’s arms, there we stand

But remember our soldiers 
Fighting brave like warriors 
Families love and hope is their only gain
These are our soldiers in black rain.

Now your gone

The rain pours
Over my soul

You left me
Here all alone

It's been three years now
that I've shedded these tears

over your face
How can I replace

So now your gone
and never comin back
I cannot heal these wounds
the strength I lack

Because your gone,
I'm soooo alone
I guess it's time too,
it's time to be strong

The rain calms,
I can feel your palms
Onto mine
til the end of time

I feel used
need to be rescued
from your lies
you cannot disguise

The rain stops
so does my heart
people used to say
couldn't see us apart

but that's all gone now
from the end to start
what we had
It fell all apart

So now your gone
and never comin back
all these wounds I've healed
are never wanted back
and if I stay alone
there will be no more attacks

The rains gone
it's left me here all alone
it's a brand new day
I will end this hurt today

rain on my lips

the rain falls on my lips
just like your lips fall onto mine every time we kiss
our bodys falling into a rhythmic motion
slow.......
         then....... 
                   fast.......
our breath increasing with each motion
your hands holding my head tight
pushing your kiss into me
each and every thrust causing me to moan in pleasure
till i have to push at you
to
........stop
but really we both know thats not true.

your hands trace my body then your lips follow
swallowing me in a passionate moment
your hands cupped around my breast
holding tight
sucking tenderly
gently knibbling at them
making my breath increase 
in intensity
slowly we slow down till
you thrust 
...........once more
and fall on top of me in exhaustion

your hands and lips flowing everywhere
upon my body
makes me feel like saying 
things that i know i would regret later
that i know are not true
but for now i'll discard those thoughts
till the next time we decide
to let the rain fall upon our lips

Left In The Rain

I've been left in the rain
Suffering in the world's pain
All I see is people walking past
How long will this loneliness last?
As I am sitting in the rain I pray
And ask the Lord if there is another way
Will anyone see me sitting here?
Trying to dry each and every tear
Will I be sitting here anymore?
Lord, help me find an open door
Has anyone seen me sitting here yet?
Shedding tears making my face all wet
Being lonely in the rain is not fun
When you can't spend time with that special one
As I've been left in the rain
Suffering in the world's pain
In my head I've been going insane
Lord, please unlock this chain

Let go

How do I follow my heart
When someone has taken it away 
How do I free myself from pain
When it's hard to let you go

The stars refused to rain love on me
The sky travelled far away from me
The storms have taken over me
See what your love has caused me

These tears I reaped in silence
For loneliness has keep me company
And heartaches have given me faith
The years we had in the past
Now the pain is here to last

Why did I gfive my heart
T oa love destined someday to die
Why didn't you teach me
How to let you go

The stars refused to rain love on me
The sky travelled far away from me
The storms have taken over me
See what your love has caused me

These tears I reaped in silence
For loneliness has keep me company
And heartaches have given me faith
The years we had in the past
Now the pain is here to last

I'd still follow my heart 
Even if you took it away 
I'll teach myself to live in pain
It's time for your love to go

Song for a Goddess Child

Embrace yourself in the silence of the earth, 
Radiate the wonder of your beauty and worth.. 
Stretch your soul and sing aloud, 
Dance with the rain and kiss the clouds.. 
Breathe with the sun, glide with the moon, 
Your magic star carpet will be here soon.. 
Stretch your soul and sing aloud, 
Dance with the rain and kiss the clouds. 
The darkness is lifted, the pain is gone, 
Just drift into serenity and be that song. 
Let your soul heal let your heart be alive, 
You are bliss flowering gorgeous in the wild.

the letter i cannot write

In your arms you held me
With comfort and love to spare
Yet you left me early
To leave me in a heap and die

You are the rain I suffer with
Yet you make my harvest bloom

You are the volcano that tears through the mountains
Yet gives hope to a new start in life
My heart pours open for you 
Like a 9000 foot dam
Crashing to the floor
Yet you cannot hear my silent echoes of pain
When you escape from my hold

You flood my world like the devils tsunami
Yet you make my river, valleys and sea

You are my poison leaking into my veins
To kill my heart, spirit and my soul
Yet you are the one who gives me drains, to escape the flood

You’re the letter I cannot write
And the heart I must keep well locked up

I hate the feeling of love and pain
Like the dagger you placed in my heart

You’re in my mind, wherever you are
I can love and hate the same
Because I hate you for making me in love
It would not be so bad if you were a distant
Yet somehow you are always here

You held me in your arms
And clasped me by the throat
I was in pain, yet could not seem to leave
You are the one who I love most
And could not leave until I must give in

I thought it was for the best
Yet I suffered yet more pain
Now I think back
I would do anything
For one last clasp again

I cling to you and you to me
Like at that party in his chair
I hugged you and you hugged me
And I long for that moment ever spare

I told you stuff, I never could tell
Only you would understand
Then you left me and I knew
I would never have that hug again

You leave me lonely, cold and shivering
In the rain and in the snow
I will never forgive you, for leaving me like that
Yet, I cannot say goodbye
As you have a clutch onto my heart
And you leave lonely in that chair
I miss you and write a letter of falsehood
I mean what I say but it’s not the truth
You are the letter I cannot write

I wish I could, but if you knew
The feelings, how I felt
That you are the one I love
Then you would never understand me ever again the same

Ava and Me in our Rainy Retreat

Amaretto morning
just like the earth to be grey today
Time for the old dog-eared book
all the while begging the rain to stay
I couldn't buy a moment like this
even in Lion's Head Antique store
I couldn't wish for a better excuse
to sink into myself, or to love you more
You grab the pillows and blanket
I'll fill the room with Red Star music
We will tell stories 'till we're laughing out loud
Ions of rain and the pressure diffuses
We are no longer dealing with death
We are no longer frazzled and wild
Just give us the rain on a Tuesday morning
and we become silly, as mother and child...

Girl


1. Out my window rain starts to fall
2. I am trying to get a hold of you
3. Knowing that the break up was wrong
4. Sitting in my window I start to bawl
5. Wondering what you are going through
6. Writing out the words to our song

7. Are you even at home
8. Why was I so dumb
9. I know it was all a lie
10. You should not be alone
11. I am feeling numb
12. All I want now is to die

13. Should I go for a walk
14. Or sit here and think
15. The rain is so inviting
16. I really want to talk
17. Over a talk drink
18. I promised no more fighting

19. I have always loved you
20. With all my heart
21. I can almost fell your presence
22. After all we had been through
23. Hard from the very start
24. My shoulders are getting tense

25. Some aspirin to stop the pounding
26. My window is now cracked
27. What can be that awful smell
28. The rain is so hard I hope your not drowning
29. All my things were packed
30. Suppose to stay the night oh well

31. I turn up my music
32. The rain wont stop
33. More scared now for you
34. In my mirror putting on your favorite lipstick
35. Not a lot of water on the windowsill just a drop
36. I can almost hear you

37. I can hear your voice
38. Its in my head but it feels so close
39. Still writing the words to our song
40. To break up a bad choice
41. I don’t want someone else
42. Its been so long

43. Our song is on now
44. With words of pure love
45. To much pain to take so I skip it
46. My eyes hurt so now
47. I feel like you were sent from above
48. And I always gave a Spit.

49. Your voice is so loud I’m so close to you
50. I go to the window
51. And look down
52. I look down and see you
53. But just a body below
54. Then I frown

55. I ran down the stairs
56. And I grabbed you and told you that
57. I do love you
58. And that you will live and when you sing there will be no more glares
59. I said so much more then that
60. But I could still not save you

61. Holding your bloody body in my arms
62. Crying to myself
63. To kill myself an hour later without a try
64. To get out of harms
65. Way to kill myself
66. To ask why?

Rain

The rain is falling down tonight
As I close my eyes there you are again in my sights
My memories of my moments frozen in time won't let me sleep
So even though I feel strong
It's a sensation which is all wrong
Cause the visions that run through my mind leaves me feeling broken, cold, alone and week
It's something completely hopeless
So very helpless 
To the point where I can't breathe
You hear the rain hit the ground
You try very quietly not to make a sound
Even though your screaming inside
You wish so much from all this you can run and hide
But there's no where to which you can go
And this I am all too familiar with and so very much know
It follows you everywhere so no sense in fighting it any longer
And even when you give in the feeling just keeps getting stronger
You are my love suicide
To all your desires I would so very willing abide
I see me there you holding me tight as we lie in your bed
And for the first time in a long time I finally am revived so completely alive and not dead
I sit there hanging on your every word that is said
I'm so captivated by your love
That I then no longer am raptured from all my heartaches that swing from the ceilings above
You are the only man who will ever be
The one who could take me to palces I have never before seen
And you are the only man I would so completely and willingly
Totally capture and ravish me
And then I remember how she is the one holding you 
Doing the things to you I so much long to do
Look at her closely, does she look back at you with the love she should
I'm there in the back of your mind and you know that if it was me there with you now I would
There's no doubt I would stare right through to your soul so intently it would take away your 
breath
Then you would get it and my love for you will then reveal to you it's depth
Yeah now the rain is really starting to pour
And I know if only you were here with me right now in this moment and in time from now on  
the rain would then have no reason to fall anymore...

You cant stop the rain

is there somthing missing
is there somthing missing 
is there somthing missing

can you help me 
help me find peace inside
sir can you leed me 
into the cradle of life

fountains flow and hedgerows grow
cars are fast and hearts are slow
the chimes of midnight calling 
please forgive me

tears flow like flooded lands
i reach out for your hand
rivers of dreams taken from me
you cant stop the rain 
from drowing you

the bus re-joins the flooded highway
puddles of resentment mar the way
knowing you dont care anymore makes this journey harder 
to see your face out on the road
its not enough to stop the rain

fountains flow and hedgerows grow
cars are fast and hearts are slow
the chimes of midnight calling 
please forgive me

tears flow like flooded lands
i reach out for your hand
rivers of dreams taken from me
you cant stop the rain 
from drowing you

Worry and fear rule most everyone's day 
how could it not come to me 
Eye was just worried that ideas would dry up 
and the poetry. 
Fishing is always impossible in a monsoon 
and drunkards sometimes miss a drink due to rain 
in the impossible day when it floods. 
Leaning on people and giving is tough 
leaning on money to have everyday 
to make purchases of wine and more beer 
can be hard in the rain. 
Yearning for someone feeling no pain 
yearning for love in the rain 
dying but living inside where she dwells 
the love is so real eye can feel her so well 
she is love deep inside me where no pain can reach 
the insulation of ewe the insurance of she. 
Turning away from the world in my sleep 
reaching for her she is love she is me.

I'm a poet

I'm a poet, but I just can't write today 
please dear God can you give me the words to say 
Could you help me Lord, 
and bring joy my way 

A touch from You is all that I need 
To be a blessing is my one and only dream 
rain Your love on me today 
and make these feelings go away 

I'm the poet, but you've been my words all along 
you've been the one to plant all these songs 
you are the words that I speak 
Could you help me Lord, it's joy that I seek 

A touch from You is all that I need 
So would You  help me, and set me free 
And rain Your love on me, so I can finally be made clean 

So without you I am just a useless vessel for you 
But with your help I can do anything that you have me to do 

A touch from You is all that I need 
To be a blessing is my one and only plea 

With a touch from You, I know that I can be made clean 
So rain Your love down now, and cleanse this dying soul free 

Jesus you are the seed that I need 
you are the blessing for me 
So would You help this feeble,and weary soul 
And rain Your love on me so I can finally be made whole

What sad eyes!

What sad eyes!

What gray eyes!

Perhaps, he has told you , 

What you - not the first with him? 

Your raincoat is wet from rain ,

And your curly hair is wet.

How he could offend you -

You are so proud! 

But the leaves of lindens and poplars,

Are flying as thoughts, 

And a rain - 

A gray sparrow

Kisses the pools.

The happiness has gone away,

And will not return any more.

No! You must believe:

and in your life

will be sun again!

Smell the Rain

I smell the rain 
When settled dust 
Upon a field of flowers 
Dances in the four winds, 
And moist air encircles me. 
I see the rain 
Like a man's fist 
On an outstretched arm 
Rolling back its sleeve. 
As it swings with strength, 
I hear the rain. 
The thunder rolls; 
Light crackles and flashes 
In the distance; from above, 
When I cannot escape, 
I feel the rain 
Soaking into my clothes; 
As I run for shelter 
Under the rickety porch, 
Breathless, at its cedar post 
I taste the rain 
In coupled hands. 
As it streams down 
The weathered tin roof 
In veils of cascades, 
I know the rain 
Will wash away the dust 
And paint the earth and sky 
With puddles and bows; 
When the storm breaks, 
I love the rain.

glad that you are home

hear the rain as it falls on the window,
sitting by the fire place,
I hear the key as it turns the door,
my heart begins to race,
because I know that you are home.

I take your coat,
ask you about your day,
work is over now,
it is time for you to play.

I want to make you feel loved,
no regrets,
whenever you come home
I get excited..

hear the rain as it falls on the window,
laying in your arms as I hear the wind
gently blow.

Sleeping in rain

Sleeping in the rain 
as tear drop hitting my window pane
the flashback of you saying my 
name. "still bang in my brain"
"got make this change"
Breathe your breath was everlasting"
as tear drop hitting my window pane
the flashback of you saying my 
name. "still bang in my brain"
"got make this change"


"missing u loving u holding u"
as I walk all see u
what  iam gona  do



 Numbing the feeling in brain, going insane
It’s running through my veins
Can’t maintain. Name because there
all the same
blood drop on my window pane
GOD please ease the pain


Sleeping in the rain 
as tear drop hit my window pane
the flashback of you saying my 
name. "still bang in my brain"
"got make this change"

as tear drop hit my window pane
the flashback of you saying my 
name. "still bang in my brain"
"got make this change"

"missing u loving u holding u"
as I walk all see u
what  iam gona  do


falling in the rain
flooding and there no drain
my vein are empty and there no flame
day the you left was the day felt-death 
there nothing else but--self

As i reach for you 
all touch is air,
you picture there

A Special Look

Water comes through the screen
The cool breeze refreshes
Washing away the scene
Blowing away all the messes
Chilling the warm thick air
Cleansing the dust away
Blowing without a care
Making room for today
And what does it hold
Is it the rain or shine to come?
Talking away the old
Bringing forth the young
Coffee in her ceramic cup
Steam rising from within
Drinking until she’s full up
Changing her frown to a grin
The rain outside slowing
The cars rush the morning
The moon in the sky not glowing
School buses without warning
Tires in the puddles splash
Thunder rolling on the gulf
Lightning in the back ground, crash!
All is still but a pulse
Will she awake with grace?
Step out and smile
See the sleep on her face
She’s traveled a long, long mile
The pain shows her age
Time she may not have any
She’s trying to turn the page
But there are just too many

There is a beam of light
Something she never thought
Shinning so bright
A love that could not be bought
A man once came her way
Smiled and shared a book
He’s still here today
Giving her that special look

In Memory Of You

As quick as the rocket launches into space
This life cannot be replaced.
Like a dream but yet a nightmare
The tears we all seem to share.
We still sit here wishing this is not real.
We can’t tell the rain from the sounds of our cries 
Were still wondering why you had to die.
knowing you had such a great heart.
Still wishing you did not depart.
Wishing you could make us laugh one more time.
Wishing u could hear me say this line.
Your heart is that gold.
Your heart is more than what is told 
Its the feeling u gave us
You gave us your best.
Your heart is that rainbow after the rain dies down. 
Your heart is the moment in that sound.
Your heart is more than what can be defined. 
Your heart will always stay within mine.
But now in heaven, where every hurt and curse is erased. 
You’re now in that perfect place 
No tears, just happiness hopefully its the best. 
You’re probably playing cards with angels right now 
Let me guess u won somehow?
Basically what I’m trying to say
We will meet u up there someday.

You Can't Get

That is only rain running down my cheeks,
although my heart is breaking, my spirit you
can't defeat.

Love is only a feeling, and in time it will heal,
but a broken spirit is deadly, and who you are,
it will steal.

Self worth can't be bought, it can only be 
instilled, by people that will praise you,
and respect from others, you always feel.

A beaten down flower has very little chance
to ever grow or bloom, and only if someone saves it,
can it be free of a certainty of doom.

So I'm standing in the rain today, my cheeks
are  soaking wet, but there is one thing
I know for sure, my spirit  you can't get.

a different kind of beautiful



There's a ruined place that I call home. 
Unbalanced colors of depressed portraits hang uneven. Is this where I 
belong?......and now, I have wings in this oh so desolate sky with no escape. I 
bare my heart for the world to see for I am not ashamed to be myself, even in this 
ruined place that I call home. I welcome you with open arms. My mirrors speak to 
me in unison.....how does it feel to be a different kind of beautiful? I see paradise 
within these walls that you find disaster......and I cry. You don't see what this does 
to me, it becomes harder to break these words away from my emotions. For an 
empty verse defeats the purpose of being me. You read this chapter not knowing 
that with each word, you take a step higher upon my tree of velvet leaves. Can you 
feel it? Its a different kind of beautiful. The kind that takes you miles away from 
unhappiness. For me, this is the way its suppose to be. Where I belong, 
somewhere on a black and white street walking in the rain with my head 
down.....I'm ok but u don't know that. You think I'm sad not seeing that these black 
and white streets put me at ease, like closing my eyes and hearing music in the 
sunrise and that the rain brings me a sense of comfort. If only everything were 
that simple. For you, a vision put before you is all you see, I like the way the water 
looks when the sky swims through it, can u see it? Its a different kind of...........

Sunday Morning

Breathing in heavy air of lies,
Hiding grief in this bitter wine,
Finding beauty in porcelain strength,
Not enough to say goodbye.
Castles, built on the shards of dreams
Are just pain's another guise,
And my heart that was never whole
Will be wrecked by parting twice.

You are leaving and taking a part of me away,
You have followed the calling of once so precious days,
And my tears are pouring as Sunday morning's rain.
It's erasing the footsteps on our ways that crossed,
Now the rain will remind me of you - my greatest loss.
You are gone, and life's colors are fading.

It's the dusk of my brightest dawn -
Sunday morning. But life goes on
Under signs of submissive waiting 
And greatly missing.
I'm a shadow of your light,
Giving up this internal fight.
You will always be out of touch,
But you're always mine in mind. 

You are leaving and taking a part of me away,
You have followed the calling of once so precious days,
And my tears are pouring as Sunday morning's rain.
It's erasing the footsteps on our ways that crossed,
Now the rain will remind me of you - my greatest loss.
You are gone, and life's colors are fading.

Cloudy Days

The clouds are rolling in;
I hear thunder far away.

It’s then that I realize;
It’s one of those days.

I know now that I am losing you,
As you run away once again.

I just wonder in my head,
“Will this time really be the end?”

The thunder is much closer now;
The sky turns a dark shade of gray.

That is when I know;
That today will be the day.

As the tears stream down my face,
I look at myself, in such disgrace.

How did I let it happen again?
Why couldn’t I just be your friend?

The rain starts  pouring from the sky;
As the lightening strikes too loud.

Today is the day I must say good-bye.
I just wish that I knew how.

I continue to lay here and let the tears fall,
As I wonder how I’ll say good-bye.

It is now that I need to hear your voice the most,
But then I remember…all you can do is lie.

The sun then begins to shine through the clouds;
As the rain and thunder all fade away.

It is then that I realize inside my heart;
Today is a whole new day.

Dark Rain

The dark rain falls upon the world
  And drowns the stifled cries,
And bathes with faithless vision
  The grieving parent eyes;
And in it’s cold descending
  And it’s desolate decision
Cuts the very cord of life
  With a hand of God precision.

The pieces that are scattered
  Are emotions in that rain,
Bled of designation,
  Swirling down a silent drain;
And as the night approaches
  And the light invites stagnation,
All the trains grind to conclusion
  At a cold and empty station.

The dark rain is an emblem
  And a harbinger of death
 Yet our love is great, defying
  Any stilling of the breath;
For the short time we remember
  Puts an end to grief and crying
The short time that you had
  A timeless source of love undying.

Echo

My footsteps echo 
into the night. 
An unchained melody 
-no end in sight. 
You take my hand 
and place it in yours. 
I catch you smile 
and i want to know more. 
Together we talk 
of loves long ago. 
Wanting to fall again 
but still take it slow. 
A friend ship so new 
like that of morning dew. 
Lost in your words unspoken 
my smile lends a heartfelt token. 
A cool water droplet 
and I am here back with you 
A cool summer rain 
chills my sun kissed skin 
You shelter me with your sweat shirt 
is this a unconscious little flirt? 
The weather playing a curious game 
has me wrapped in your arms yet again. 
We run hand in hand 
to an oasis for two. 
One that i surly will share with you. 
the palm trees leaves 
shelter us from the rain 
at your touch i cannot help but shiver again. 
I look up in to your eyes so blue 
there was nothing to do but steel a kiss from you. 
My warm sultry breath caught up in a fog 
almost crackles like fire on a log 
A moment of weakness 
and i draw you near. 
I reassure you have nothing to fear 
i am all that i am 
and all that i give 
So take me now 
so that we can both begin to relive 
The built up passion 
between two friends 
Leaves nothing to imagine 
But everything to begin 
As we come together 
as our bodies combine 
and we make love so divine 
Look in to my eyes 
and my soul you shall see 
All i have to give 
Lays deep with in me.

From Me, With Love

My dearest,
When rain washes the world of its impurities,
Remember the music the rain made on that special morning.
That morning, where the image of us two, remains fresh in my mind
Leaving me with joy and passion to get through my day.
Do you recall, as I, the days when we first met;
The love, the intoxication of feelings, the passion?
It was a love story like no other and still remains.
~~~~
I wish to say, my dearest, that within me, you live.
I carry your picture, though vividly you’re in my mind.
I pick up your scent, though apart, it lingers.
I can hear your voice, so sweetly whispering in my ear.
I feel your touch, softly playing upon my skin.
Your taste, well my love, that too, lingers on my tongue and upon my lips.
~~~~
For fear of losing all of this, I write you this note,
So they, too, can remain fresh for you and brighten your day.
Thank you for loving me as you do and sending me off
With these feelings of passion and bliss.
Let this note serve as a constant reminder of my love
But, also the desire I have burning inside of me always.
Mostly, let this serve as the inspiration to make
Even more memories and happier tomorrows.
From me, with love.

Apart.

Yesterdays rain brought back a time when I loved you and you loved me, together 
with our body's warming each other under the blankets,
now seasons have past and our love at a stand still we look for each other and 
time alone,
with work, worries, kids, school, always on the run only to spend time not with 
you but alone with our pet.
 how I wish we could go back in time were it was only you and I young and full of 
each other saying I love you on the phone,
But times have changed and as our love grew so did our home more love but 
less time together, more joy but less time alone more but less,
a family full of love lovers full of life like before when our eyes first meet I want you 
I want to kiss your soft lips hold your hand look into your blue eyes,
what we have is what everybody  dreams of,  two wonderful kids a marriage full of 
life, life full of happiness,
I would n`t give it up or change a thing because years have past and when we 
touch I still fill the passion and you still give me butterflies.
absents makes the heart grow fonder and apart your always in my heart there my 
not be time alone, but when the rain fell my heart warmed,
I heard your laugh, seen your smile, felt your kiss and our love too,
pen to paper if not my words to you with all my charm.
your still and always be my every thing and I miss you.

The Dreamer

Tears fall like rain from his eyes,
trying hard to drown his sorrow,
Where once there were clear blue skies,
now left facing another gray tomorrow,
Left feeling alone and empty once more,
The Dreamer stands with his heart in his hands,
as another love walks out the door,

A flame that once burned vibrant and strong,
has now become just a dying ember,
A heart that sang a joyous song,
now as cold as the snow in December,
Left behind now just another memory,
The Dreamer cries, As he tries,
to hold onto his dream,

A man once so full of joy and love,
who cherished each and every tomorrow,
Now stares at the rain clouds up above,
and tries to hold back his sorrow,
He gave his heart to a love so true,
truly the best he had ever known,
The Dreamer goes on as tine goes on,
in our memories he will always roam.

You're - My Life

As the time goes by, killed by hours of waiting,
The hope in last tears is revived.
When I chose to give in, I was so mistaken -
Couldn't see that one reason to fight. 
Then you've opened my eyes to the truth.
Please, forgive me for all times I lied
To myself... All I need now is you. 

Just the rain reminds me of latter tears.
I close my eyes and dream again.
A breath of wind... I feel you here,
You're life, still flowing in my veins,
And in each tear - each drop of rain -
I see your face... can't live without you.

You're every tear in my eyes,
Leave everything but you behind,
I'm locking all; I'm turning back
For the last time,
For you're - my life.

Come to my dreams and stop the time,
Let know you're here, my angel, fallen.
You've broken your wings - I'd give you mine,
And give you hope, from you once stolen. 
You're more than precious memories,
You're my twin soul - your heart I'll treasure.

And every time I look at the dawn,
Far at the horizon see your eyes.
You're miles away, you're there alone -
Your heart's with me - I'm still alive.
I can't pretend, I won't even try
To escape from this love and to lie to both us...

You're every tear in my eyes,
Leave everything but you behind,
I'm locking all; I'm turning back
For the last time,
For you're - my life.
