The Flight of Tempest Reigned

Upon a glorious night
A burning fire lit upon my unrented spine
Deafened by fleeting sight
I flee the home that never was quite mine

Crushed in garish fight
Within the corridor I dare to flee
Blinded by his might
While all the sad spirits return to me

Oh Tempest, you blow in me hope
Of sorrow more true than any other light
Oh Tempest that guides my departed
To your soul so bright
Rejoining each of us—the broken-hearted 

Upon that vaporous eve
Enclosed in bond beyond mortal grief
Lost to the foggy reef
The fog that so lingers in these glistening eyes
That vapor drew me near
Bedazzling more than the moonlit mirror
To where I see him fly
Twas a heart-reaching place I always fear

Oh Tempest, you blow in me hope
Of sorrow more true than any other light
Oh Tempest that guides my departed
To your soul so bright
Rejoining each of us—the broken-hearted 

Between the beat of my breast
A heart that beats only for him
He slumbers in the clouds
The clouds that pour my poignant prose
Beyond the darkened seas
The wind does carry the scent of his bequest
Within the folding of the storm I cease to rest

Oh Tempest, you blow in me hope
Of sorrow more true than any other light
Oh Tempest that guides my departed
To your soul so bright
Rejoining each of us—the broken-hearted 

To him my sorrows lay 
And fall into the arms of strangers' trembling spine
As light and pain fall gray
Twas there they grayed and blended with the rain
Twas there they grayed and blended with the rain
Twas there they grayed and blended with the rain

PRAYERS FROM WITHIN

17.	PRAYER FROM WITHIN
Touch my heart where it hurts,
Heal all my emotional wounds and cuts.
Grease my heart with ointment of joy
So potent that no circumstance can destroy.

Touch my soul where it sickens
And my heart where it weakens.
Help me fulfill my purpose in life
And be my power over worldly strife.

Touch my heart where it deadens
And cause me to glorify the Heavens.
Make me your beloved, Dear God
And silence my foes with your mighty sword.

Sweeten my thoughts that had once been sour
That I may smile like a sun flower.
Endorse the re-birth of my destiny,
And protect me from Satan, man’s greatest enemy.

Red Sweat

Your silence,
a stillness of alluring patience
seductive in it's resilience,
suspicious magnificence, 
unmatched beauty demanding vigilance
making this man rowdy and restless for your finesse,
distressed by this drama of love's test,

You're the only woman scratching this chest
with passion's raging arrest, nails of sharp zest,
the supreme Queen keeping me raw and hard, my only quest,
I'm confessing you are the best, the most luxuriant caress, my unhesitant request,

I want every feeling you're capable of conceiving Babe,
knowing and revering your eclectic emotions, your unspoken demands,
burning for your paradon and kiss, you will always know I am love in your hands
share with me the fuel of fervent fire, gems be our eyes, together, golden pulse we've made -

J.A.B.

Future Picture

Paint me my teacher
A picture of my future
Tell me at this juncture
About My future
I will listen with rapture
You my teacher
Show me every feature
Of my future.

spread me my teacher
the wings to my future
Make me learn
what my efforts will return
Hold my hand
Guide me and
let me walk the path
My life is worth.

Show me my teacher
what is stored in my future
show me the beauty
of my future duty
Then I will paint
a picture with no stain
A future perfect picture.

show me my teacher
the colors to paint my future
I will paint a doctor picture
Or paint a lawyer picture
I will paint my perfect future picture
with the colors from you my teacher
Help me paint my future
My respected teacher.

Music Take Me Back

When I'm blue and need something to make me smile
I can turn on my forty fives and listen for a while
Jimmy Gilmer sang about a Sugar Shack
Holding hands, walking down that railroad track
Then I let the music take me back.

Take me back to a time when love was new
Take me back to a time when skies were blue
When we could catch that falling star
Make love in the back seat of my car
Music, oh sweet music, take me back

Doo-wop memories touched my soul
Mixed with the early days of rock and roll
I close my eyes and through the haze
I see sunshine and better days
Music take me back to those times again.

There was Bandstand on TV in black and white
Radio on 'til you fell asleep at night
There were dances at the school
And swimming in the community pool
Music take me back, let me remember when.

Did we believe those days would forever last
Were things so much better in the past
I dream of days when a movie
Meant kissing in the balcony
Music take me back, let my heart roam.

It seems like a thousand years ago
We found true love and watched it grow
I know this is where my heart belongs
When I listen to those songs
Music take me back, please take me home.

INSIDE YOUR EYES

You stumble over words
feeling insecure
So much you want to say
but still unsure
You worry what I think
tears trickle down your cheek
want to unzip your heart
but silent.. cannot speak

Look into my eyes
and fear will fly away
I'll see inside your eyes
all you want to say
My finger on your lips
don't say a word
Here in my embrace
every thought is heard

Girl, I love you so
ya make me wanna shout
But we can take it slow
ya never need to doubt
Yeah, I am into you
climb mountains, sail seas
Until our kingdom comes
and you're united with me

Look into my eyes
and fear will fly away
I'll see inside your eyes
all you want to say
My finger on your lips
don't say a word
Here in my embrace
every thought is heard

Look into my eyes
and fear will fly away
I'll see inside your eyes
all you want to say
My finger on your lips
don't say a word
Here in my embrace
every thought is heard

TRUE LOVE WINS

A man could never love a woman more 
And to see her hurting rocks him to the core
But through the pain she finds her smile 
Oh, the beauty of her face
Like a warm, intimate embrace 
Charming him is just her style
She is his life
His amazing grace

So she leans in to kiss him tonight 
She's holding all their memories 
Of what a life its been
True love wins!

They could never explain the feelings held inside
Of their forever love that has no goodbyes
So, even in night they find the day
In difficulty they don't despair
No matter what comes together they'll share 
This is simply Jim and Betty's way
This is their life.. This is their prayer

So he leans in to kiss her tonight 
He's holding all their memories 
Of what a life its been
True love wins!

This crazy, messed up world 
Is growing more absurd
But he still knows her every thought 
Without a spoken word

One glance at him is all it takes 
Like love is beginning all again 
The story of their lives.. 
True Love Wins!

*this is a poem about parents love for each other through all the years and obstacles of life.

A House On the Cliff's Edge

There is a house on the cliff’s edge,
Around a quiet, unmarked shoreline
At night, the tide lifts high against a foggy moon
In the morning, gloomy clouds settle with the sea
At times, not even the birds are seen or heard
The house is left to nature’s caress

Home-crafted seashell chimes sway and sing with the wind
Crushed sand dollars lie together on the back porch
The shells were once whole, collected by the former owners
Long gone are they now, smiling with the moon
The owners are the very sound of the ocean spray,
Striking the rocks, announcing the cool dawn of day
They are not the dark, empty rooms,
The rooms that nobody thinks of as they go about their lives
The quiet owners are long gone—thought of only by one
A stillborn legacy about as tiresome as the sun,
When the clouds crisp out its beams . . .

A seawater puddle is in the middle of the dining room
Nobody knows it sits there, sinking in the floorboards
It used to be a far larger puddle after a storm,
Stealthily leaking into the house
But now it is small—so small—and the boards are moist,
Moist with its only companion amongst the instilled silence

Nobody thinks of empty, abandoned rooms
Nobody remembers the former owners
They were not much for socials and gatherings
They always lived their quiet, happy lives
Without a care of the outside world,
Far from anybody’s thought
Miles from the nearest home
Where the next generation comfortably lives 

He never finished fixing that leak . . .

Sometimes the puddle gets bigger after other storms
And when it does, there is almost life there again
You can see the chandelier reflected on the unperturbed water
As a crystal dangles and falls from on high
The dark silence following the drop is as deep as thought . . .

Nobody thinks of empty, abandoned rooms
Nobody remembers the former owners
There is merely a house on the cliff’s edge
Around a quiet, unmarked shoreline

Romeo and Juliet

When last they kissed, and summer’s lease
fell brief and sweet, and winter's chill would steal the heart away...

Sweet coral days, turned blight to rust, 
and Shakespeare's words,
will wring despair from what will never be.

Behold, your eyes that weep,
and empty arms will flail, for
young lovers swept away on wings so frail...
 
No other love could ever grieve so well. 
Shall hence, will come a cry, to shatter starry skies
with tragedy to tell

O’ she of flaxen hair, fair cheeks so pale,
His love was as a fever, longing still. 
His sorrow greater than the darkest night
Too cruel to bear, delusion played unfair
Despair, beyond all words could shout
Disquiet of the heart cries out
To death, that calls, from 'yond the distant stars.

Sweet love so rare, a thing beyond compare. 
Where whence their love, once like the lilac full
The blossom fragrant,  so sweet as whippoorwill
Ere' slumber's chain has bound them now.
Thy song has waned, the garland dead
upon the blade, upon the sword, asleep
The swollen heart with anguish weeps…forever is a love to keep.

Unanswered Poems

Don’t send me more 
Of your tragic poems
My dear 
Covered in blood
Of your monthly flood
Of tears

Don’t send me more 
Of your angry poems
My dear
Carved with the knife
Of your molten spite
And fears

I’m just a peddler 
With a cart
Bringing discount words
To hearts
Broken hearts across the land
Woman left without her man
Broken hearts throughout the world
Anguished boy and crying girl

Your poetry’s too heavy, dear
For me to read, for me to bear
Your poetry’s too heavy, dear
For me to get from here to there

Don’t send me more
Of your bitter poems
My sweet
Forged in the fire
Of your endless ire
And grief

Don’t send me more 
Of your hopeless poems
My sweet
Ripped from the womb
Of the lonely room
You keep

I’m just a peddler 
With a cart
Bringing discount words
To hearts
Broken hearts across the land
Woman left without her man
Broken hearts throughout the world
Anguished boy and crying girl

Your poetry’s too heavy, dear
For me to read, for me to bear
Your poetry’s too heavy, dear
For me to get from here to there

(You see that shadow on the road
Trudging ‘neath its heavy load
A heart weighed down by sands of time
And your poems only make him cry
And he won’t add them to the pile
So he can walk another mile)

(And he won’t add them
To the pile
So he can walk 
Another mile)

Too heavy, dear 
Too heavy, dear
For me to read 
For me to bear

(They make him sad
Make him cry
Beat him down
Deep inside)

Too heavy, dear
Too heavy, dear
For me to read
For me to bear

They make me sad
Make me cry
Feel as though 
I want to die

(And he won’t add them
To the pile
So he can walk 
Another mile)

Too heavy, dear
Too heavy, dear
For me to read
For me to bear

(A heart weighed down 
By sands of time
And your poems 
Only make him cry)

Too heavy, dear
Too heavy, dear
For me to read
For me to bear

Stone by Stone

I have a wall you cannot see
Because it's deep inside of me.
It blocks my heart on every side.
And helps emotions there to hide.
You can't reach in,
You can't reach out,
You wonder what it's all about.

The wall I built that you can't see
Results from insecurity.
Each time my tender heart was hurt
The scars grew worse and worse.
So stone by stone,
I built a wall,
That's so thick it will not fall.

Please understand that it's not you-
Continue trying to break through.
I want so much to show myself
And love from you will really help.
So bit by bit,
Chip at my wall,
Till stone by stone it starts to fall.

I know the process will be slow-
It's never easy to let go.
Of hurts and failures long ingrained,
Upon one's heart from years of pain.
I'm so afraid,
To let you in,
I know I might get hurt again.

I try so hard to break the wall,
But seem to get nowhere at all.
For stone upon each stone I've stacked,
And left between them not a crack.
The only way,
To make it fall,
Is imperfections in the wall.

I did the best I could to build
A perfect wall, but there are still
A few small flaws, which are key
Please use each flaw,
To use a crack,
To knock a stone off the stack.

For just as stone by stone was laid,
With every hurt and every pain.
So stone by stone the wall will break,
As love replaces everyone.
Please be the one,
Who shares enough,
To find the flaws, no matter what.

Poetry Soup

Since joining just yesterday,
I have not had much to say,
As I sit here idle,
Waiting for a title,
I watch as you pass my way,

I am honored to be here,
While a select few may jeer,
Mostly I can see hope,
From the end of my rope,
Bringing about a joyous tear,

For all poets who have been called,
Disenchanted or enthralled,
Our mission always true,
We inform and move you,
To make you act or make you halt,

To rise above and expound the truth,
Or to lose ourselves in a groove,
Whether blatent or far out,
We live to learn - live to shout,
About love, laughter or the blues,

For although I may be new,
To this small poetic group,
I see what you've built,
With talent and skill,
Namely this Poetry Soup,

Salute to a Man of Mud with an Unblemished Heart

Salute to a Man of Mud with an Unblemished Heart 
Rommel E. Gabitan

Clouds of mud cover his forsaken face
His hair showing strands of entangled complexities
His arms are covered with stingy memories
With all the world’s judgmental presumptions

He wanders in the corners of our fallen castles
Filled with hatred,, ignorance and neglect of men
We hear not his voice but deep in his heart
He is shouting “Hey, have mercy on me!”

We dream of Cinderellas and Prince Charmings
But this Man of Grease has nothing to cherish
Except finding tranquility and serenity of mind
In the midst of emptiness, yet he resembles a smile!

Woe to you people wearing clothes of pretention
Glittering with false gold and silver of indignation
You eat chocolates of sugar coated bitterness
Yet you spit sour drops of your putrid arrogance

He is a man swarmed with grease, mud and flies
He eats the leftovers of our bountiful banquets
But I say to you, he eats with dignity and cleanliness
For his heart is pure and sincere, despite his ugliness

Memories

Thinking back on you and I
It doesn’t seem that long
It’s hard for me believing how
The years have come and gone
Everything about you still
So fresh inside my mind
Precious memories locked away
But never left behind
I shared with you my daytimes
But my nights I spent alone
It tore my heart to know your nights
Were not spent on your own
I knew the risks involved
Because you wore a wedding ring
But I never knew the pain for me
That wedding band would bring
For years my heart was frozen
From a love that it once knew
But I knew my heart had melted
When I fell in love with you
With you and I together
So many things were shared
But most importantly
I never said how much I cared
I tried to hide this love from you
Afraid to let you see
Not knowing of the child we’d made
Growing inside of me
I knew I’d never be with you
I never could have stayed, because
We took away this tiny life
That you and I had made
There’s nothing else you could have done
On you I lay no blame
But now my life feels empty
Full of sadness, loss and shame
I would give my all to spend
Another night with you
For you to hold me in your arms
And say you love me too
But if this never happens
Then I want to tell you still
I loved you then, I love you now
I know I always will...

To Whom It May Concern

I walk with a silence to my step,
as if in reality they never took place.
A shadow cast upon what has been done,
evidence misplaced.
Seconds merge into minutes, minutes which remain endless.
Days stand without weeks moments reign endless.
Does the mind play tricks, or does the thoughts stay mine.
Without word spoken, whispered from lips to allowing ears,
lies the moments experienced within the years.

Boy and Girl

I feel my mind go wondering back
And let the years unfold
To when I first met you
When we were only twelve years old

So innocent and young we were
Just holding hands together
When we shared our first kiss
I thought you’d stay with me forever

But then as we grew up
I left behind my school girl days
It broke my heart to turn our backs
And go our separate ways

And as the years passed by
I tried to put you from my mind
For I had family ties now
Leaving memories far behind

But you and I had something
That forever would be there
A love that grew from innocence
That no one else could share

And though I tried forgetting
In my heart you did remain
For deep inside I knew one day 
Our paths would cross again

We couldn’t hide our feelings
Though we both knew it was wrong
For we were man and woman now
The boy and girl had gone

But deep inside we’d always known
That 'we' could never be
While you were tied to someone else
I had my family

So once again you walk away
But never will you know
The sadness and the pain inside
The tears I'll never show

The heartache that will stay with me
Until the day I die
For you will always be the love I lost
Who said goodbye...

If the world were full of hippies

If the world were full of hippies
there'd be nothing left to prove
except peace and understanding
and a little bit of groove

Noone would be homeless
Like many live today
We'd build beautiful communes
where anyone could stay

Together we'd make music
to the beat of mother earth
there'd be no fighting or war
Everyone sharing equal worth

We'd grow our own vegetables
 and create trinkets to sell
We'd open up our minds
break free from our shell

Every colour and every race
would teach one another
we'd become a united family
every sister, every brother

We'd bless all gods creatures
show respect for the land
Give free hugs to everyone
openminded to understand

Nature would speak to us
Our world would become one
with peace and understanding
and a little bit of fun

Detoured Dreams

I always thought of heaven,
as a warm, New England Fall day. 
The leaves were shining brighter
than the street post lamps at midnight. 
I’m cruising along the highway. 

Passing scenic pastures, tiny plazas and singing-
perhaps we are all just standing
on the great shoulders
of the men and women who were before us?
Everything that was -is 
fortunately apart of today.  

And I write-
because it relieves my pain. 
I create
because it’s nice to remember how to love.
Am I therefore less worthy, 
if I one day choose to make money, 
off my lovely creations?

What if Hitler had become an artist? 
Legend has it at one time, 
that’s what he wanted out of life.

What if Hitler had become an artist? 
What if someone had embraced this passion, this skill?
He could have sipped wine, 
painted on blank canvases,
and basketed in reflection of the moon.

He could have
Made love, 
and wrote songs, 
and Praised God, 
for the fortune of being able to dream. 
 
Instead, 
He abandoned his love for creation,
His love of art, 
praised only the devil
and became crazed with hate,  
millions were slaughtered, 
millions had to pay the price.
How tragic can life be?  

But now, 
I’m Passing through scenic pastures, tiny plazas and singing-
perhaps we are all just standing
on the great shoulders
of the men and women who were before us? 
Everything that was -is 
unfortunately apart of today.  

we never know just how much
shutting down one little, tiny, persons dream
can effect so many other people’s dreams.
and the generations to come. 

What if Hitler had become an artist? 
 would it have spared us some?

When the world is bitter and cruel
remember my love i will comfort you.
When your heart is broken and lost
remember my love i will find you no matter what the cost.
When you have lost the will to go on
remember my love i will be the rock you can stand upon.
When the worries of  your heart become too much to bare
remember my love i will always be there.
with hope in hand and i will always love you no matter the cost
remember my love you will never be lost.

This is what my heart says

i swing into dreams
i swim into the deepest sleeps
i never seem to get back in time

now the world seems clearer
my friends say i am getting better
i wonder if those are just words to deny

and a lover of the abyss
you sprang out of the mist
but i cannot give you what you seek

the phone keeps ringing
and my heart keeps doubting
of all the words you have tried to speak

so speak no more.

so let me go.

please dont speak anymore

now i just want you to know.


there are rainbows and clouds
better than what i am right now
you can find them somewhere out there

my heart cannot bear the pain i will send
because i am not mister evil again
please my heart says i want to get out there


my heart says i want to let you go
i just want you to know.
i dont love you anymore.

Rabid Believers

The track marks are exposed, so you’ll have to look twice without getting caught. Your mind starts to wonder what it is he’s been shot full of, Cocaine?  Gasoline and formaldehyde?  Fabric softener or blue ne high. You’ll have to swallow hard because your throat’s gone dry from the bone dust. Reality is a broken jar of afterbirth, no longer able to contain the past remnants of truth, and shame… leaking all over the shag carpet. Spilling behind the couch into the cracks in the walls. Everyone can see the cigarette burns in the drapes. The neighbors are complaining about the sound of braking glass. Your smile’s gone cold and grey. The lines in your face run deep as wood grain and as smooth as a razor canoe on a river of flesh. You’ve taken shelter in the dry hardened shell of yesterday’s corpse. The sound track to your dreams are of rusty things that scream and clang, and “never mind” is the only thing that follows when you speak your mind in bits and pieces.  Father, bless this child of sin. Consume her eyes and salvage her skin. Drape it across her mother’s face to bind and hold the tears in.  The sweet nectar of heaven drips down from the trees onto your brow, anointed, salvation….religious disease.  I don’t deny these things in my life that I can’t quite grasp, cold winds, locust song, and haunting gasps. Invoke your true self in the blood without fear. My smile’s a scalpel across your eyes. There’s no denying these things that dwell within your bones.

In The depth of the heart

If you were, to look deep inside of my eyes, 
Look past, my faults and imperfections. 
Look past all that seems confusing and different. 
You could see my heart, and if you look even closer, 
You may fall in love with all that,
I could be and all that I have already become. 
You could grow with me, You could understand me, 
and you could embrace beauty that is deeper than the outer shell. 
Slowly, you could love every inch of my being. 
And appreciate Every breath that we have taken together. 
Once you have fallen in love with my soul, 
Then you have truly loved me. 
You see, my outer appearance will change,
and I may begin to look different as the years, pass by.
If you have fallen in love with my spirit, my heart. 
This will not change your love for me. 
When you have learned to love me, for what is inside of me, 
We have made it, and can dance through this life together. 
And as long as you stand near me through this life, I can live. I can breath and I can learn. 
When this is found this is Love! Beauty is only measured from within. 
Looks will fade on the outside, However, 
always be found again when someone looks deep inside your eyes!
 Time doesn't change that beauty, it is a gift!

Loves Praises Sing!

Your love is like a song
It caresses my heart and soul.
Your love is always around -
It never lets me down!
I can sing your praises 
My whole life long!

I love to feel your breath -
It dances upon my skin.
Its like unto a soft Spring breeze -
It leaves me weak in my knees!
Oh!  Your eyes!  I'm enraptured
By their captivating gaze!
A single kiss from your sweet lips -
Leaves me in an induced haze!

I love the silky smooth glow
Of your emanating skin -
The scent of which, fills my heart -
With deep longing from within!
Your voice echoes sweet chords
Of Heavenly delight -
My soul bows down in the presence
Of your great and brilliant light!

Her love is the most cherished -
One man has ever felt!
Even 'round her in silence -
Heaven's Angels knelt!

I love her with the greatest love -
Only one man is capable of.
Its me!  Your one and only -
True and cherished Love!

What are your Words of Poetry meant for Oh Sage

I.
The wrothful man has regotiated his saliency,
The humble man has neglected his post of "Your Excellency",
Let the pirate look through my one eye of transpareency,
Hope my superman sings along to those dracula's frequencies,
These are not Bulls written in pure fantasy,
Our fleur-de-lis and its very ecstacy,
Not meant for agilely minded Perverts,
Spliffs meant for Godly minds,exhalling Wisdom and Truth.. Selah

II.
Reading to the salient ears of age,
Your teeth gleaning this vast ears of corn,
Seeing men's rage shorten their years,
Or what your ladies who smiled at my no-beard-style have become,
Easy skanking is what my ears hear,
A tip of God given talents,
Many a quail showering my Sweet Heart with "Works so excellent",
God breathes his creative spirit to minds We call "Salient", Selah

Reverencing Nature

Creation energy in each atom glows.
Electron-bound sacred unity –
Thus, reverence for nature inside me grows
When I walk through rustling sheaves.
And I know in my heart power flows there,
In each cell throughout the trees –
And all the while I go with a smile,
Knowing joys that nature weaves.
By the energy bound within all compounds--
In the wind and in the trees –
A great strength from which honor mellows
Believes the joys nature conceives.

And this is why honor to nature goes,
And the universe receives: --
Form from a shapeless power emerged,
Physical matter conceives.
Afterward, substance gained its shape,
Now, the universe receives.
Tiny atoms shine their light
In each tree and in the leaves –

The beginning, surrounding as unity abounds,
Thus Pantheists…worship agrees –
Praises to nature! (a believer knows,
The universe its might weaves.)
Energy sparks verve, living…thrilling.
Starting life, an atom achieves.

Universal essence throughout nature astounds.
From one cell, another follows –
Spiritual mentality knows –
Realities sacredness nature resounds,
Within an elated heart billows,
Freeing the energy within all living souls.
Cosmic unity within man and trees –

As life’s passage one takes and of it sense makes,
Thinking of the trees and its leaves.
When, looking toward skies wherein night beauties rise
Worships nature and believes.
For thus it is, pantheist reverence nature’s pure bliss,
Adore natural matter; respect all that is.
For in trees and in the leaves –
Omnipotent universe perceives.

Just Can't Let Go

I’ve tried to forget you and what we’ve shared
I’ve tried not to believe that I really do care
But it makes my heart ache to tell myself no
There are too many reasons that I can’t let go

I remember the laughter and all of the fun that we’ve had
I think of how you’ve made me smile all the times I’ve been sad
I’m just so crazy about you and I’m letting you know
I love you too much to let you go

I want you to want me and to hold me so tight
I need you to need me and to hold me close at night
I want you to think of me wherever you are
I want you to remember my love is never far
Tell me our love will continue to grow
Please tell me that you just can’t let go

I’ll continue to love you and to treat you right
There’s no time for yelling and no reason to fight
My love is so strong it could move a mountain
That’s why my love pours out like water from a fountain
It’s so easy to love you and I just want you to know
That’s another reason I just can’t let go

Whenever I’m with you my heart begins to sing
You really do make my heart smile with all of the joy you bring
You fill me with excitement from head to toe
That’s one more reason that I just can’t let go

We need each other like the earth needs the rain
We have nothing to lose and so much to gain
You have someone to love you without causing you pain or sorrow
Someone who will love you today and still be here tomorrow
Someone who will always love you so
Someone who just can’t let go

Just give into your heart and live life on the wild side
Believe in me baby and I’ll take you on one heck of a ride
Look into my eyes and tell me what you see
A world full of love is what you will get from me
Just take a chance and don’t tell your heart no
Don’t miss out on true love, tell me you just can’t let go

This is the way that real love should be
You won’t get hurt this time, no not by me
It’s time to believe in someone you can trust
This is true love not casual lust
You can believe in my love I have eyes only for you
My heart is all yours loving, honest and true
There’s really something you should know
This heart of mine just can’t let go

The power of love is something we can’t understand
It’s rare and beautiful and can only be found with the touch of God’s hand
He brought us together for what we may not know
Let’s just hold onto what we have
We just can’t let go

THE THINGS YOU DO

Time to let this go 
The things you do 
The things I know 
The things that hurt me too 

These years 
So many tears 

I cannot go on 
This battle is never won 
For there shouldn't be a war, 
between two..................... 
This irretrievable flaw 

For beauty inside, 
takes time to find 
Sometimes not at all 
I cried 
Trying to reach your mind 
My heart to fall 

This flaw 
The heart you tore 
The things you show 
The things you know 


The things you haven't given 
I have forgiven 
These years 
So many tears

Orange

Round and sweet
     it enters your
bloodstream
     you are transformed
Heart pounding - 
         vibrating lights and 
colors
        It seems that our
eyes
     will now see the 
colors
      that it must see
if we are to continue 
       in this way
  Let's not remove the
dawn from our lives
    we'll be happy once
more
    surrounded by moving shadows
Night's dark cloak
has faded
Greet the new day
with the marvelous
colors of orange

My crazy cousin

My crazy Cousin.

My cousin calls me crazy poet
Cause I don’t think like others
I’ve not seen her since she was three
A Flower girl to us lovers
When we got wed in sixty five
But now we write and all
Oh lord, we two are so alike
It’s just remarkable.

In eight weeks time, she’s coming here
To good old western Oz
I know we’re going to get on well
I do, and that’s because
That girl is crazy just like me
And she likes a good old laugh
She seems to be a grand old bird
I’ll say on her behalf.

She’ll bring her man, and son with her
They’re all creative folk
She can paint and write as well
And boy, it is no joke
The kind of talent that they have
It will be a joy to me
To meet up with forgotten kin
I can’t wait for this to be.

Best Friend

I remember the very first time I saw you,
You wiped the sweat off your forehead,
I remember what all I use to say to you,
Followed my heart, I love you,
Maybe I needed to guard what I say,
Or express it in another way,
I hope I did you no harm,
Or is that what you call destiny,
Please know in your heart,
Eventhough how things played out,
My life and all its' worth,
Worth calling existing - living,
And without ever crossing paths,
My life would have been blah,
Words can not express how I feel about you,
Celebrate our love, if nothing more ever than be my best friend,
You are my very breath and hope of hearing from and possibly seeing you,
The very reason I make it through another day,
Our love we will celebrate far and away,
But in my heart, you are right here with me today,
I love you friend,
You make this world and all it contains worth living,
My heart smiles when it thinks of you,
I will somehow express my heart before I leave this earth,
So much I want to say,
I don't want to complicate things,
I just want you to be healthy, happy and carefree,
I know you love me,
You don't have to say it like I so often do,
I knew day one, 
When I became good friends to you!
I love you, boo!
I do!
Best of luck,
Live like you were dying!

Broken Dreams

  Do you believe in the things that you've always known,
Can you understand the things you've been shown.
   Is it the visions you see that make you believe,
Or is the feelings you get when you've been deceived.
    The pain you feel a never ending ache ,
Tearing your heart and soul from you every day.
    Time ticks slowly pounding away at you,
Throbbing heart breaking and there's you can do,
    Must I settle for these lost and broken dreams,
Because it has all the signs that what it seems.
    How much should a man endure to find his way,
It cant possibly be like this hard for me every day.
    There is nothing so frustrating as being so confused,
Especially when you've discovered that you've been used.
    I will get through this lonely phase I have no doubts,
But I'm sure there will come a day I'll figure it all out.
    Cautiously I walk the path that's been laid before me,
In faith I will continue for I know he will let me see.
    Life will be thrown at you in so many different ways,
I will be prepared for these things for the rest of my days.
    Broken dreams will be the learning tree for me to grow ,
Living my life with Joy Happiness is what I'll always Know.

A true friend

A Friend.

Associates, I’ve had so many
But let us speak of friends.
It be a term so often used
But I’m the worst of men
When it comes to picking holes in things
And a true authentic friend
He be as rare as rocking horse poo.
On a friend you can depend.

A friend would be there to the end
He’d take naught for himself
Oh yes a friend be wonderful
And adds to life much wealth
You know that when the chips are down
And the whole wide world looks grim
That friend will always be with you
His light will never dim.

This be as rare as hens teeth
But when the day does come
That you find this special friend
Your life will cheer up some
She’ll always soothe and comfort you 
And make you feel real great
A friend is someone sent to you
By the tender hand of fate

Cherish him or her so much
Cause when some-one your heart does touch
There ain’t no treasure on this Earth
There nothing that could have the worth
Of the one who loves and listens to
And gives support always to you
A true friend he till forever
He will not betray you, never!

THE PERFECT WOMAN

THE PERFECT WOMAN

What does a perfect woman mean? 
Does it mean something that meets your standards?
A standard measured by physical appearance
or from within towards one's heart and soul?

Perfect is just a label 
A label to define what you like in a woman
A woman whom you want to be with for the rest of your life
A life that will make you feel satisfied.

What is a perfect woman for me?
The perfect woman is a woman who is beautiful inside and out
Not only in the sight of those around us
But in the sight of GOD

Good night

The way I feel is sad the way it 
sounds outside
My heart is roaring in anger
My hands won't let go of your 
body
I'm fighting to keep you near 
me your lips pressed against 
any part of me
You belong to me and I wont 
give your love away
I hold you dear to my heart and 
kiss your soul when your not 
looking
Listen closely to the sound of 
the wind against your window 
as you sleep
The sounds you hear are my 
lyrics I sing
I love you my angel
My lyrics hit like pain upon ur 
pane of the window that cast a 
shadow through the cold room 
u dream in
Don't worry my angel I will 
surround your shakes & shivers 
by a blanket that I once 
covered myself in as I kissed it 
with many "I love yous!"
Goodnight my lyric goodnight 
my angel!
Xoxo goodnight with love,

My Cousin Alf

Written by my Cousin Susan Northwood who thinks she cannot write. She wrote this poem for me. pleaser let her know that she can write very well, she is also an excellent artist. By the way, I am back from my holiday, and glad to be back with you all.





My cousin  Alf.

Whilst searching on the net one day
A name jumped out on me
Peter Duggan, as he is known
My cousin, that he be.
A crazy man, a writer too
Speaks his mind, I kid not you
He loves to argue, and debate
Gossip, and trivia, he does so hate.

He wrote me emails, all the time
And many poems in rhythm, and rhyme
His words were calming, made sense to me
Helped my fears,and anxieties.
Life for him had not been kind
Bullied, beaten, and a troubled mind
But here he was, helping me
With all my anger, that He could see

As time did pass, my life got better
Thanks to him, and all his letters
Back and forth, we wrote like mad
Happy laughing, and sometimes sad.
Now here in Oz, I've come to see
My cousin, and his family
Yes he's just how I imagined
Loves all life, and writes with passion.

He argues, talks, and often shouts
Sings, and laughs, but what about?
Yes, he's blunt, and can be rude
He'll shock you too, if you're a prude
But underneath his suit of armour
There stands a man, who's met his karma
All he wants is peace in in life
No more trouble. fights and strife.

There's many souls who cannot cope
With this loud, outspoken bloke
But I know where this man is from
He says it in his words and songs.
So for me he is not Peter
Or Billy, John or Ralph
He simply is my cousin 
Also known as Alf.

Written by Susan Northwood, for Peter Duggan.

I WILL AND I CAN

I'm going through and i can
Tomorrow there 'll be a sun
After the storm rainbow comes
Someday I will hear the beat of the drums.

Watching my dream fades away
Hoping to see it once again someday
Nothing left on me anymore
But I 'm going to stand once more.

I promise to keep on moving
Even these fears keep on striking
Hardly trying to take me down
I 'll give it a continuous round.

I 'll never let it end like this
Though I 'm staggering and feeling selfless
Tomorrow I 'll get it done
This heart says I will and I can.

Star Child

Constellations in my eyes;
Windows they're said to be.
Look into them now, and tell me what you see.

Calling every angel born in Hell:
"A child of the stars looking for his soul to sell.
So few are left to be birthed of Orion's Belt."

Soon they came; rulers of every layer.
Each to make their offer, 
And leave their summoning prayer. 

"Centuries of wisdom, and a mind that holds no time.
The past, present, and future are all close friends of mine,
And the Titans of the Universe I stand so close behind."

They opened all my wounds to taste how I have suffered,
Shamed me for my scars and all that I've recovered. 
Then mocked me for my weakness, known only as 'The Lover'.

"It is forbidden for us to deal a soul of the cosmos,
And you taunt us for what you wish to sell.
But we've found something in you to make us heroes down in Hell."

You are protected by forces greater than your own.
Should any God or Demon make you bow before him,
Death would surely find his throne.

It's your heart that we desire, and the love that you still hold.
Grant us this purity and surely you'll have more than this world can hold.
Let it be known that your heart is the heaviest to hold.

Surely it is quite the burden to bear.
So strange in it's nature, let us free you from it's wear.
Success will quickly follow and embrace you in it's care."

Yes! Take from me all that you desire!
No longer will I suffer in it's muck and it's mire!
Do with it what you will in the cold and the fire!

With their prize, they left with no hesitation.
Legion upon legion; Hells' United Nations.
All for their Master and all in celebration.

Lowly creatures is what they're cursed to be.
They know me by many names, they know me by many faces.
And my heart I've sold on every occasion. 

Fools! Surely they must know!
That every heart I give away
Brings me the love that stays.

Star-Gazed Nostalgia

Lets climb up that old tree, 
make the clouds disappear. 
Let’s climb up that old, lemon colored tree, 
make the rain clouds disappear.

Rough wood, and a rickety ladder,
White christmas lights trim the slumping roof
over a few branches 
and we're crawling-
through the doors 
of a star-gazing tree house
 full of nostalgia. 

Sounds of traffic, cross walk conversations 
Trotting past that old jazz bar, 
a mexican family arguing on the stoops, 
funny how an unknown language 
can still make sense on the inside.
the mother gestures her son upstairs to sleep, 

But my world’s only waking. 
There’s a party up ahead. 
and there’s something ‘bout the nights’ breeze
blowing off the cars and into the trees. 
its Got my heart singing about this new love I’ve found.

A Lonely Heart

                                                        A Lonely Heart



Without love a Lonely Heart cries.
Without hope a Lonely Heart sighs.
Without faith a Lonely Heart  dies.

             A Lonely Heart:

Full of Love
Full of Hope
Full of Life
Full of Faith


                                          A Lonely Heart ...

A Shared Dream

Chills of comfort
as smooth as skin 
grazing grey stones. 

In the next room-
technology is hard at work
churning, turning
while the guitar gently rifts. 

Harsh winds are whipping, 
we are lying 
above a pale yellow floor
Dreaming-
across a hazy tundra.

The Light of My Life

The Light of My Life
Rommel E. Gabitan


You came when I was in despair
Crying my heart out in the rain
Your voice eased the burden inside
My lonesome, troubled, broken heart

You came when the stars faded away
When their light ceased, darkness followed me
My fears and tears ate me up inside
With no guts, no strength, no glory to fight

All of a sudden, morning came by
With all your light, you turned darkness aside
All my fears were gone, strength was renewed
With the dawning of hope, glory was restored

My heart sings with joy and laughter
Everything is finally in great harmony
Now I sing a new song of hope and triumph
I’ll tell the world, you’re the light of my life

The birds are coming

The birds are coming
 
The birds are coming
The dusk be closing in
The evening silence, coming soon
Makes way for screeching din
Of crazy birds of pink and grey
All falling from the sky
Alighting near the feeding tray
As daylight starts to die

So beautiful, the sun shines bright
Pink feathers come aflame
As dancing, screeching, crazy  birds
Enjoying life’s sweet game
They argue as each pulling rank
Will try to get first feed
Those pink and grey galahs they be
A somewhat noisy breed.

Too soon, they’re gone
So very suddenly
They hurl themselves into the sky`
As off and flying free
They fly up to their safe abodes
Among the tall green trees
To slumber neath the starry skies
So wonderful they be.

BREATH OF LIFE

This soul was dying and crashing,
But she gave me a breath of life.
She whispered beautiful words of life,
That rejuvenated the strength within.
I started to feel the life within me rise,
And made me feel alive again.

With the breath of life I rose again,
And the petals of my life blossomed.
Once more I felt the warmth of love,
Melting down my once cold heart,
Into a warm heart that can hold love.
It is a good feeling of happiness,
That makes this heart make a beat.

In the shadow of my own loneliness, 
Life was as dark as a dark night is. 
The sun in my life had never set,
And the moonlight was never bright,
To light up the world around me,
Until she gave me a breath of life,
That filled my heart with love.

She is coming from the far horizon,
But I can smell the smell of her perfume.
With her majestic move I hear her steps,
And my heart is beating in expectancy,
With every step she makes closer.
My hands are widening up for her,
Ready to hold her in my arms of love.

FREEDOM

I colonize to unite, they colonize to divide
It is time to return the union of the archipelago
To unite the community through dinar and dirham

Through unite-and-rule tactics must become

Read that
Aw, made me blush
You didn’t got my way to write a poem
Same thing I did to Lontie
That’s why I kept on asking you
Read here
Sulu Sail there
Indeed, you read it?
Yes, you know what?
I don’t know, what is it
You know the entire time that I was mocking you 
And yet you still have cornered me with your charm.
What do you think of that poem?
Charming, you really know your way to my heart no?
I love the poem I wrote because someone is inside it.
Was there any poem you have written without anyone in it?
Yes, but in this poem is only you is that someone
One poem of me then
Indeed this is the poem for you
Who has the most numbers of poems who have written about?
I mean, you have written about
No one except my life and journey
And right now this poem is you
What contains in my poems is my journey in life
But personified by moment
So to whom is that ilyimy line then?
Iloveyouimissyou that is for you!
Go, you're a flirt!
Isn’t it cute?
Lost for words as always
What do you mean?
No one has ever written a poem about me, but you.

Fire in the sea

I am fire in the sea, look at me.
I am fire in the sea.
I am shooting flames,
that can not be overwhelmed by the waters.
I am fire in the sea, look at me.
I am the ember 'neath the waves
can't you see?
glowing there like a starfish, let it be.
I'm so bright, could blind your eyes
don't look away.
The ocean wind blows in your hair,
what's there to say.
The wind blows,and the flames whip the air.
There's a crackle, hiss of foam,
try not to care.
If you do you might cry, so let it be.
I am fire in the sea, look at me.
there's a place 'neath the sea foam where I go,
so deep none can find me, no one knows.
It's the darkest part of my soul I do not show.
I am there beneath the waves where no one goes.
I am fire in the sea, look at me.
I am fire in the sea,
I am shooting flames that cannot be overwhelmed by the waters.
I am fire in the sea, look at me.

LETS OPINION BE DIFFERENT

Let's opinion be different so there is story
I do not like to air criticism
I just only like to ask
And the question itself will be criticism
Criticism on people who were asked
If to ask would be more prudent
Criticism is quite violent
I am so afraid of violence
I have to use the technique
Technique to ask with its critique 
And that is certainly more painful
Like a snake that run along quiet
But the extract of poison is very painful
I also laughed when criticism aired among
True indeed… 

Translation...


PENDAPAT BIAR BERBEZA
Oleh Neldy Jolo

Biarkan pendapat itu berbeza jadi ada cerita
Aku tidak suka berkritik
Aku suka sahaja betanya
Dan pertanyaan itu sendiri akan jadi kritikan 
Kritikan pada orang yang ditanya
Kalau bertanya akan lebih berhemah
Mengkritik itu agak keras 
Aku sangat takut kekerasan
Aku kena menggunakan teknik
Teknik bertanya dengan kritikan bersamanya
Dan yang pastinya itu lebih pedih
Ibarat ular yang menyusur tenang
Tetapi bisanya sangat pedih
Aku juga tertawa bila berkritikan sesama
Benar belaka…

DANCE DANCE

I have been running to the meadows..
I tried to chase the rear shadows...
Wanting to valiantly join the show..
Magnifying beauty in a dance flow..

Melancholic is the chosen first beat..
I sway my body following my feet..
I stand; crawl and sometimes sit..
Unaware of the beginning felt heat..

When finish, all seem to marvel..
Awed and entertained applause fell..
Suddenly, there's the ringing of a bell..
Symbolizing start of another music roaring well..

Dancing dancing...
hands holding..
hips swinging..
arms bending..

dance...
dance..
dance..

HUG OF YOU

I love you Anak. Allah knows that.
There would be a time,
You would feel how the love of your Ayah.
His love to you is eternal
I never had a quality hug of you.
You cry when seeing me because of the things said to you.
The things which you never understood what really happened.
You became the victim of selfish pride of individual.
Someone who does not care of the spirit of humanity and love.
Sooner or later you would be in my bosom.
Take care my Queen.
Allah is with you. I miss so much. 
Let me hug you from the distance.



Dedicated to my daughter, Ratu.

BLUE

Walking alone is deep.
I want to savour this nature.
I imagined this colonial structure. 

How do people live those times?
I don't mind of being under colony.
But I would fight not to be under tyranny. 

Suluk is part of Sandakan development.
William Pryer lives with them.
That modern "Jalan Pryer" is incorrect.
Coincide with the original "Jalan Praya" as it is believed. 

This building is of colonial.
That blue sky with twigs dye.
I walked alone and pass by.

Wind is blowing.
Car is horning.
I walked in the morning.
I missed this jogging. 

It's been a decade I did running.
Now I want to do it again. 
I want to achieve something.
Something is not a thing,
But a way a healing thing.

Happy Sunday for today, 
I did to jog yesterday.
I want it done every day.
I won't let that go away.

I hope so I will do it really. 
Good morning Sunday.
I love you every day.

The Long Way Home

trotting across my back field
there’s a storm brewing-in
it’s misty friend is climbing 
through the cold, prickly wires

Delicately drenched, 
as wet as 
a dog’s kiss,
there’s a-storm brewing-in
it’s casual pal is breezing-
bothering the wicker trees.

his smile- 
brightens my mind 
like the italian renaissance.
inhaling red tipped 
cigarettes 
we chat under the glistening leaves. 

But there’s a storm brewing-in
it’s hamper full dirty laundry
is drying-
stringing across my back yard. 

his laugh-
is as pleasing 
as old dogs learning new tricks.
Just one more outburst, 
and I swear this storm will turn to stone. 

I bask-
his attention is as gratifying 
as a masters gentle stroke
just one more round of 
darting eyes and light hearted jokes.

I realize now, 
He grumpiness does best
to protect what’s raw and rare-
from the snakes who try to tear us away from home.

Like stumpy cigarettes, 
hanging off the tips 
of tough our lips. 
we’ll share each other’s worlds.
Yes, Like stumpy cigarettes, 
hanging off the tips 
of tough our lips.
Come- 
let’s melt into each other’s worlds.

Souls of Men

If I should fly 
this Earth tonight
somewhere between two sleeps,
to the beating of a rythm,
in the cadence my heart keeps,
my heart will keep it's measure, 
to the faucet's broken seam,
that leaks my mind to other worlds,
and begs my soul to dream.

I dream I fish for souls of men,
sea water drops the looking glass.
My ship is coming on the tide,
I pray this vessel be my last.
The souls of men shall be my treasure,
of wich I'd fill the cargo hull,
for nothing fills my heart with pleasure
 like fishing for men's souls.

On and on and on I fish,
while the dripping cuts the seam, 
that leaks my mind to other dimensions,
beyond Crystal City's broken dreams.

So, if I fly this world tonight,
somewhere between two sleeps,
to the beating of a rythm,
in the cadence my heart keeps,
my heart will keep it's measure,
to the faucet's broken seam, 
to heal the souls tied to this world,
and free my soul that beams.

Bigger fish I'm pleased with,
but it's the smaller ones I rue.
The schools of the smaller ones 
my nets keep passing through.
Finer nets I need I'll need,
 times no cost to me it's true.
Finer nets will catch more souls,
God rest my weary crew.

On, and on, and on I fish,
sea water drops the looking glass.
My ship is sailing with the tide,
I pray this vessel be my last.

So, if I fly this Earth tonight,
somewhere between two sleeps,
to the beating of the rythm,
in the cadence my heart keeps,
my mind will see the future,
in the blinking of an eye,
when I've gathered all the lost souls,
before they even die.

Glorious rays of sun shine down.
sea water drops the looking glass.
My ship's a coming on the tide,
a rainbow high above the mast.

So, if I fly this world tonight,
somewhere between two sleeps,
to the beating of a rythm,
in the cadence my heart keeps,
my heart will keep it's measure,
to the faucets dripping seam,
and open up other dimensions,
and free my soul that beams.

A Little Crazy

My poetry is normally thought provoking that its insane 
Word rhyming that can rip up the direct thought line in the brain 
Words so hard they concrete steel bars locking on the mind with chains 
Words bleeding that they mentally leave thought with stains 
Writing my life away before I die in a world with no change 
I take *****in poetry so serious its my only range of life written about our past experienced death pains
 We all going to die someday in someway so we best look for someway in this some kind of day before you lay your head down as you pray past this darkness looking at the sky gray so please Lord help me do something the people can face with the uttermost respect regardless of gender sex or race
 because someday we all going to go A Little Crazy in this crazy place.......

Princess Angelina

Princess Angelina

Princess Tinsels baby daughter
Has grown up quite a bit
And my, oh, my, she’s beautiful
Oh, she has all of it
A heart of gold, a lovely form
And she’s so full of bliss
Her name is Angelina
So very sweet she is.

She has a way with animals
That seems at times like magic
She loves all people, all of them
And when their days are tragic
She’ll give them the milk of kindness
She has the healing touch
And even gnomes and bitter demons
They all love her so much.

Angelina, she is loved
By all who hear her name
Folk they come from miles around
To see this girl of fame
One day she will be their queen
And it is plain to see
That when she takes that station on
A wondrous Queen she’ll be.

DREAM

I dreamed in a dream
I walked through an island
An island full of fruits and flowers
Its dazzling scenic view
Mesmerized me
I woke up in that dream
And the dream still a dream
But that dream is reality
Now I am eating Durian
But still a dream
Before I forget
Those flowers are you!

Lady from the hills

Lady from the hills

In a little cabin in the hills
There lived a maid of beauty
I’d place her on a pedestal
And no one would dispute me
One glance at her, and one would fall
Beneath this ladies charm
Her heart was filled with harmony
Her mode was soft and calm

Her kindness it was known by all
And folk would come and see her
For every time they caught her glow
Something within would stir
And as they trod their way back home
There feet would feel like feathers
She could even melt the heart
Of those with souls like leather.

Her hair was dark, her eyes deep blue
And every time she spoke
Her voice rang out like tinkling bells
As through the air it broke
All the birds and butterflies 
Would gather on her flowers
And wolves, and bears and wild creatures
Would melt beneath her power.

One day a man with no compassion
Who had no soul at all
Did come into her lovely garden
And he was oh, so cruel
Even she could not melt him
This man of ugliness
His heart was cold his hands were rough
He was evil, nothing less.

He tried to have his way with her
But what he did not know
Was that all the wild creatures
They loved this lady so
They came at him with such aggression
And threw him to the ground
And to this day nobody knows
Where his body can be found.

Midnight Kisses

 Midnight Kisses

Walking side by side talking crazy
Yelling obscenities to the city
Not caring laughing out loud

Stop in our tracks
Softly kiss in the moonlight

Walking in the dark bumping hips
"What is on your mind?"
"Just happy to be in the moment"
Arm slips into yours

Stop in our tracks
Softly kiss in the moonlight

Talking about the wisdom of our ancestors
And hearing what the walls have to say
Wondering at the idiocy of architects

Stop in our tracks
Softly kiss in the moonlight.

Feeling your heartbeat against my hand
Running my fingers through your hair
You gaze lovingly  into my eyes

Stop in our tracks
Softly kiss in the moonlight.

How I developed reading as my hobby

I heard it so many times,
“Books are man’s best friends,”
Not just that I wrote an essay of 300 words in my secondary school,
Yes I read it in the book, ‘How to write impressive and ideal essays?’
Honestly speaking, it was out of no choice,
As the other topics were difficult to attempt.
I grew up thinking, “Reading would never be my cup of tea,”
And it held true for many years to be.
I would see people around, glued to books and deriving pleasure,
Also it was my father’s favourite activity in times of leisure.
During college I had the company of passionate readers,
In their discussion on books I was just a listener.
They often would talk about new and fascinating book they had come across.
But somehow didn’t much bother and I dint assume it be a great loss.
Deep in my heart I had planted a seed,
One day even I should develop a habit to read.
I have to admit I had even put, ‘Reading’ as my hobby in my C.V,
For it is considered to be an imposing quality.
I joined a school as a teacher,
I had to read stories to children,
I considered it to be a part of my job though found them somewhat interesting,
Still didn’t take it very seriously and found it to be alarming,
Until I got married and when my husband was not there,
I had lots of time to spare,
I don’t how and why I picked up a book,
It made me smile and I was happy for the decision I took.
I learnt innumerable things from the books I read,
‘Hats off’ to all those writers my heart said.
Then I realize that in books’ company one never feels lonely,
I am convinced for it’s the best hobby undoubtedly.
Finally it has happened to me and I am glad,
I owe it to my school and students I have had.

Loosing A Child

It hurts very much,
When the one's you love,
Are ripped from your very life,
It makes you feel as if,
You are not up to being,
The person you should be,
In this dreary everyday world,
That can be so cruel.
So, think about how your life,
Is running it's very course,
And what changes you need to make'
To better your life,
In order to see the happiness,
Of keeping the beautiful thing,
You have created,
And brought into this very world,
So, you can keep this child,
Close to you in your life,
And watch it grow,
To bond with them each and everyday,
So, the child will never grow up,
knowing someone else,
As Mom and Dad,
Pushing you away from their life,
Till the day,
You will be totally gone,
From their hearts and minds,
Which is the sign of disaster all the way,
For it will be the hurt of a lifetime.

Missing Children

When children are taken from your life,
It is very devastating in so many ways to us all,
Some people say it is your fault,
To have the problems you have,
You have caused the distruction,
Of your own family in so many ways,
And you need to start making your own,
Correct choices in life to straighten things out,
For maybe then your children will,
Return back to you at your home where they belong,
For you to love and watch them grow,
So take things day by day,
And try to correct the steps you have made,
To where you can complete each task there is,
To bring your precious children back home,
To where they belong for you to love and charish them,
As a mother and father should,
Holding them each day they need you,
So you never get forgotten,
Each and every day of their wonderful lives.

JUST BECAUSE

A different time and generation 
No spoken words could say more 
When touch was not just a feeling 
You could be rich when you were poor

And a smile was like the sunrise 
Eyes could make time stand still 
Beauty was in the moment 
No ticket needed to have a thrill

You could court without a judge back then 
A date could be a Sunday drive 
Dreaming was done while awake
No need of power drinks to feel alive

Life wasn't techno managed 
Engagement could be a surprise 
Watermelon seeds and Double Cola 
On the Princess' hand a sparkling prize

Chocolate was more than candy
Boy or girl was discovered on delivery day 
Dinner meant more than eating
The outside world didn't get in the way

But these good ole days haven't disappeared 
On Francis Street they've taken pause 
Past and present seamlessly intertwined 
You can't explain it..
it's just because!

The Leprechaun's Gift

They were sittin thar leanin back in their chairs
Near the bar, down at old Murphy’s Pub.
When a tiny old man, with shillelagh in hand
Pushed open the door with his club.
Not the front door, the one back by the moor,
The door hadn’t been used for yars, 
But he slipped on through with his hat all askew
Then signaled old Murph for a beer.
Now, there was many a town where strangers abound
But not in the town Killyclare.
So word spread fast, until at last
Half the town’s lads were thar.
Twas then doncha know, the old man arose
And tiltin the hat on his head,
“Twas a time for sure, used this club for war,
Now I use it for lore instead.
There be stories told bout Leprechaun Gold
In a pot at the end of the bow,
And the wishes you’d get if it’s me you should catch
For the prize of letting me go.
But me darlins I pray on this very fine day,
Not ta be waistin yur time.
Ya see, all the Gold’s in yur heart doncha know,
As for wishes I’ll tell ya a rhyme.
     If ya wish for a miss just for ‘er kiss
     And a lassie with which just ta play,
     And don’t care for her heart cuz ya think yur quite smart
     Then you’ll only have fun for a day.
     If ya wish for gold the story’s been told
     Then you’ll miss out on silver and bronze,
     For the journey’s worth more than a pot of gold ore,
     It’s the struggle that makes yur heart strong.”
Then through the door blew a wind from the moor,
As the Leprechaun tapped with his cane.
Then he leapt upside down—on his hat spun around
And whirled out the door whence he came.
But, thar left behind, his shillelagh they'd find,
Now it’s hung on the wall by the bar,
So whenever a day that the story’s relayed
Folks come from near and afar
The shillelagh for sure is now used for lore
And held as a story is told,
And all that are thar, then whisper a prayer
Of thanks for the Leprechaun’s Gold!

Silent times

Silent times

Sometimes, I really do not care
About anything at all
My mind goes kind of quiet then
My mode is kind of cool
And all I really want to do
Is sit here looking in
Forgetting all the world outside
Forgetting all the din

There’s a time to send ones energy
And circle it around
But then there comes a sacred time
When the harmony is found
Waiting there within the dark
To hold one cozily
A time to be in her soft clutch
And bask there happily.

Then when the muse has been recharged
It’s time to wander back
And let the words come pouring out
Cause just along the track
The wind, the flowers and dancing trees
Have replaced the mystery
So now the words they may flow free
With much more energy.

SPRING FEVER

Look, it's the first bloom of spring
A proud daffodil stands all alone
Soon to be joined by others
And light up our lovely home

Like the sun she beams so brightly
Announcing that Spring is here
There's no shyness in her yellow bud
She wants our notice that much is clear

So like a magnet I'm drawn to her
And to all that she represents
The changing of the seasons
Gazing upon her brings sweet content

The birds are singing a happy song
The breeze is waving its approval
New beginnings are bursting forth
Bright colors are Winter's removal

Sleepy beauty is waking up
The prince has placed his kiss
The lone daffodil is now surrounded
Together they dance in bliss

Kindly my Spring fever is satisfied 
What once was hope has now arrived
And the world has come alive again
The long Winter I've survived!

A lesson from the Buddha

 A Lesson From the Buddha

The Buddha had been getting round
And listening to the crowd.
He’d often sat there silently
And heard them moan so loud
About their own sad burdens
And all the hurt they’d had.
So he thought up a little plan
That didn’t seem half bad.

He called the crowd together
Said “listen here you guys
I’ve been thinking for a great long while
And I have thought it wise
To grow a special tree for you
And here it lies before you
Now listen well to what I say
I’ll tell you what to do”

He said “this tree before you
It’s to hang your troubles on
Each one of you must go to it
And your troubles will be gone
As you hang them on it’s many branches
Then what you’ll need to do
Is take yourself some others burdens
And make them part of you”

The people thought that this was cool
It seemed a grand old way
To rid themselves of all their burdens
It was a happy day!
As each smiling so broadly
Placed there burdens on the tree
Then they thought for just a while
And they began to see.

As each the truth did hit them
More restless did they get
At least they knew their burdens
So each with no regrets
Did race back to that trouble tree
To grab what they had hung there
The Buddha smiled good humoredly
He had made them all aware.

The sunyassin

As far as I know this is a true story about Alexandra the great...Peter



The Sannyasin.

Alexander said to Dandamis
"Old man you come with me
For I need me a sannyasin
To take across the seas.
Hey you be just a beggar man
I'll make you rich indeed
You'll live a life of luxury
With everything you need.

Dandamis standing naked there
With silence in his essence
He had no fear at all did he
In the mighty leaders presence.
He said "I'll give you nothing friend
And there's nothing that I need
So Alexandra drew his sword
Tried to make the beggar plead.

Dandamis laughed and said these words
With power in his voice
"You can put that sword right through my heart
My friend, that be your choice.
But I left this body long ago
I have no use for it
So pierce this heart my fine young friend
It won't harm me a bit.

Alexander he was beaten
By a fearless beggar man
Though he had won most of the world
Dandamis foiled his plans.
The beggar said "You say you're great
But that's not true at all
For any man that thinks he's great
He be merely a fool

Now Hear My Confession

I have been blind, unwilling 
To see he true love you're giving.
I have ignored every blessing.
I'm on my knees confessing

That I feel myself surrender
Each time I see your face.
I am staggered by your beauty,
Your unassuming grace.
And I feel my heart is turning,
Falling into place.
I can't hide,
Now hear my confession.

I have been wrong about you.
Thought I was strong without you.
For so long nothing could move me.
For so long nothing could change me.
Now I feel myself surrender
Each time I see your face.
I am captured by your beauty,
Your unassuming grace.
And I feel my heart is turning,
Falling into place.
I can't hide
Now hear my confession.

You are the air that I breathe.
You're the ground beneath my feet.
When did I stop believing?

’Cause I feel myself surrender 
Each time I see your face.
I am staggered by your beauty,
Your unassuming grace.
And I feel my heart 
Falling into place.
I can't hide
Now hear my confession.

Ballad of Dreams: One: Beneath the Realm part two

Why oh demon have you blocked me from such this place?
Tell me, tell me, I wish to look upon your flawless face
I wish to find that mysterious cloaked figure, walking amongst the dead
his image, his visage appears to me- clouding my head

Take me back to my dreamland, the forests, the fog and the river
Against your touch I no longer shiver
But I implore you, my demon protector take me back to my reality
Do not leave me to continue to face this false fantasy

Bring me back to my dead forest
Where by the brooke I can rest
And I, forever with you, will be free at last
For this reality, will always remain and my love for you grows vast

Above the realm of fantasy
To the blurred lines of the beating heart of Reality
Lies this secret world of the unknown
And a bird, is perched upon the grey castle stone

Contemplatively I watch this bird, such beauty in such a deadened place
His red-black wings, spread as he flys dropping low-almost smacking me in my face
Longingly I yearn to be just as he is, flying content and free
But alas, I am stuck to this broken ground, waiting for you to return to me

My faith in you, is slowly dieing,
heart cracking and crying
I know not why I feel this bond to you
Everything all just so...new

And I wait, and I continue to wait when suddenly there you are
You seem so close-like I can feel you-though you are distant and far
But it doesn't matter because you've returned me and now I am complete in my home
Down here below lost in the unkown

Where no one can find me 
And you and I are free
To spead out times wandering aimlessly through the forest dead
Where the inhabitants of this land do not tread

And my mysterious dark figured friend
Watches over me, always been the protector in the end
But to you my heart belongs
And only to you will it ever belong

Beneathe the lines of reality
Lies a secret- a world of fantasty
I find this place often in my dreams-with the castle on the hil, it's faded stone
Down here in the dream of false reality, lieing fantasy-is all to be known

A KINGS' LIBRARY

One cannot leave the books.. 
The precious books.. 
Not to be lost in the mists of magic 
For, a book unopened... 
Is a heart with no love 

Castle Heartstones' library, 
was taken aboard 
Before Tapestry 
Before Sword 

Enchanted things happen, 
in a Kings' Library 
For, books are alive 
A book will find you 

The books travelled through corridors 
For, books must find their way to you 
From a Kings' Library, 
to your heart 
For, words have more than one meaning too 

Books of the seasons 
Such colour glowing, 
amongst the pages 
Queens' pride showing 

Books of stars 
and sunbright 
Above all 
The book of The Wise Ways 
In a Kings' Library 
for all to see

Hera and Hephaistos

.Hera and Hephaistos.

Zeus and hera, King and Queen
Over all the Gods that ruled
In a fit of passion, one fine day
Made child, yet life was cruel
Hephaistos was an ugly child
All twisted out of shape
He walked just like a drunken man
Fun of him they‘d make.

The Goddess Hera felt a shame
In having such a child
She looked at all his ugliness
Her mind going all wild
She threw him from the mountain top
Into the deep blue sea
Yet Thetis took him down with her
For nine years there was he.

A gifted one he did become
A craftsman of renown
Forging artefacts of beauty
For the sea nymphs there to own
His anger at his Mother Hera
Was understandable
So he did work out his revenge
His plan was very cool.

He made a golden throne of beauty
And sent it to the Goddess
Who loved it, so did sit upon it
Yet though she tried her best
She could not get up from that throne
As it gripped her tightly there
She looked for someone to release her
Couldn’t find one anywhere.

They sought Hephaistros everywhere
To free his Goddess mother
And when they caught him he refused
He looked at one, the other
And told them I want Aphrodite
To be my blessed bride
Then peace made with his Goddess mother
One day he took her side.

This day when Zeus was beating her
His mother Goddess Hera
Hephaistros at his own peril
He did stick up for her
Zeus, he seized him by the foot 
And flung him from the heavens
Yet soon the two made peace again
And then peace it did reign.

The moral of this story folk
Is to tell you with respect
That your children are not there
Your glory to reflect
A child must seek his own glory
Not try to live for you
So listen to this story folk
And hear it’s wisdom true.

To You My Love

I love you,
More than you know,
Cause you are,
The beating of my heart,
My every thought in my mind,
When we are apart,
You are my everything,
That makes me whole and complete,
You have touched me in so many ways,
That words can not begin to explain,
Cause you have done all this,
Without saying a word,
Without a physical touch,
Without any type of sign,
You have done all of this wonderfulness,
By being your sweet kind self,
This is what makes you,
One of a kind,
And a very special person,
And no matter what may happen in time,
You will always be happy,
And loved by all,
Especially me cause,
You are here in my heart,
To stay.

For the love of you

If only I could make you see
that you mean so much more to me,
a priceless gift, wrapped in a smile,
the dream that makes my day worthwhile,
undoubted proof there is a God,
the joy that not all hope is gone.
To me you are that piece of mind,
that gives the world such sweet reply
that although love is sometimes lost,
its remnants left will never die-

How more could I express my love
for words are but the breath in me
what more can I, a man still do
except to give what's left of me . . .
for lips can flatter all too well
and sing the praise of many things
but you are in a different class
to you . . . . . I give my everything!

If ever I do fail to prove
my strong and constant love for you
then never have I lived a day
or ever took a breath anew.

The Artist and The Poet

There aint no other way how to put it or how to say it,Im the Artist and the Poet/
 Through my created creations I show it/ Im gonna rize to the poetic mountain top before you even know it/
 This my poetry and self-made concrete art only I control it/ So all ya critics out there behold it/
 I was gone for a minute locked up and locked down trapped inside concrete/ 
I was at work the whole time my poetic skills only got better they did not sleep/
 Now I arize through shackles and chains I now know true defeat/ 
Im here to stay Im the artist keeper the true se7en poet of keep/ 
I will do what I gotta to be poetically remembered the day I go se7en feet deep/
 But for now my life upon ya'll I lyrically creep/ 
My thoughts are one of a kind they cannot be replicated/ 
Im so relevant now fifty years from now I still wont be outdated/ 
Its your coice you can love it or you can hate it/ Go ahead haters debate it/ 
Still Im the Artist and the Poet thats my motto statement/ 
A whole empire of poetry and artwork since lockdown I have painfully with pleasure created/ NEVER AGAIN WILL MY ART AND POETRY BE UNDERRATED/
 I was nothing before all the time spent in concrete and confinement/ 
Now Im truly poetic with artistic assignments/ Anything I draw I can also rhyme it/
 There are more to my tattoos each one has a story and a meaning behind it/ 
I knew there was hope in poetic art I just had to find it/ 
All I got to say now is "F@#k ya'll who wanna Doubt me/ 
F&%k all dat shyt you judge me like Im on American Idol when you dont even know shyt bout me/
 Your vision of life is blurry and your death thoughts seem to be a lil cloudy/ 
I am a Poetistic Diamond in the rough it was God it wasnt you who found me/ 
Now I know more people from around the way gon crowd me/ where money and trouble again will surround me/
 I was a lost gem on lockdown waiting to shine, waiting to poetyically explode/ 
A natural born poet carving out my own road/ Living by my own F%$#%ckin poetic codes/
 I can't be rhymefest free when I get lost in that poetic mode/ 
My Time is almost here/ I been waiting for this momnet all f&&%&ing year/ 
I cant believe I made through many concrete shed tears and many unheard of outside fears/
 My freedom day is near I will not blow it/ 
This my time now homie I control it/ Im concretely the smartest writer even if you aint know it/
 MAKE WAY PEOPLE FOR THE SE7EN KING ARTIST AND POET

Child of Night

Dark child of night,
it must have been you I passed,
in a shadow of moon,
Orion on your shoulder, 
you lover of doom.
You parade across,
the stage that is night,
that we might better see,
your sparkle and shine.

Dark child of night,
ride in on your dark horse,
pounding hooves like thunder,
roll across the sky.
Flashing lightning from your eyes
over the din, I hear your cry.
I pale at the thought,
you might not survive,
the sun.

Sunlight rips the night apart,
shutting off starshine.
The moon hides her face,
embarrassed by her paleness,
but the night can't be replaced forever,
it will come again,
in its time,
dark child of night,
parade the sky,
sparkle and shine.

The sunny soul of the lion

The sunny soul of the lion.

Our lady of the sun
Never humble, she’s so proud
She loves to organize, and plan
She’s the Queen, this speaks so loud
To be her friend, gain her respect
And never let her down
She’s lovely when she’s happy
But please don’t make her frown.

Creative is her manner
She like to stand right out
When she’s there in any place
She’ll leave you with no doubt
As to who is going to run the show
But she’s very good at it
Anywhere this lady be
She’ll help out quite a bit.

Her sunny personality
Will get her liked by most
But she can be over bearing
And though she’s warm as toast
When she’s got a down on you
You’ll learn a heap on wrath
When that ladies on to you
You’ll do anything but laugh.

I Miss You

I miss you so much that I am sick
I fear forgetting your face will stick

I fear growing old not remembering
I wish your spirit is at rest and not lingering

What did you think of me in your last moment
I will never know if I was bliss or torment

Why do I suffer so about you
I don’t recall if I ever made you glow

It was so hard admitting how much I loved
You when you left me for above

I wasn’t allowed to go to your funeral
But my love for you will be eternal

Take me by the hand when I find hollow ground
The wind is a whisper in my ear just make the sound

If I saw you now how would I explain my pain
Would you just laugh at me, jeer with disdain 

I get a feeling in my stomach that cringes
It makes me rip doors off by the hinges

One night stand

Snow loves the branches of trees,
and covers them,
like a lover,
who when the sun rises,
melts away like a one night stand,
who can't take the warmth,
that comes with the light.
Melted snow flakes fall like tears,
when the night comes as it will,
the naked trees form to ice,
waiting for the light to fade,
for the snow to fall into their arms again.

NotBroken

introduction: We have two eyes, two ears, two hands, two feet but one soul.
We came to this world for many purposes, for many tests. And among all the tests, we are
here to find our perfect companion to make our lives actually complete and start a new
expedition. Two tracks merged into one that can never be separated. And to make the ground
not get cracked, we need to be that strong enough…no matter how many earthquake drives by.



When the glowing sun will shine,
I’ll start my quest to seek my fate
The moment when you will be mine,
You will know why you’re so great

Now, I’ve tried so hard to make you realize
You really don’t have to be afraid,
Of all the things you feel alive
Your soul is as elegant as a pure jade

When time comes we all have to go,
Because life never stays all frozen
And when the night falls upon your door,
I need you to be Notbroken.

When I’m gone, you be strong
I need you to wipe your tears and believe,
No matter how far away, I’m always here with you
As you’re my truth, my fate, my everything...

babe dove

All of ma life I was dying for a touch like yours.

Then u made that a reality,

U held me in ya arms,

As warm as ya touch,

ya arms were.

U Gave me a sweet tender kiss,

These made me feel at home.

 Because home is where the heart is.

Now this is where I wan spend the rest of ma days.

I don't wanna loose ya touch again.

I will hold u so dearly

And love u with all my might

Because with u I can finally b myself again

 

It feels like the doves have been set free,

So they can fly in the sky nd sing sweet melodies.

But the baby dove will come back,

For it knows that this is home,

Where it belongs

Like the morning breeze,

 which opens up the flower's petals

As they release the sweet scent of freedom nd love.

I will be there to grab the love nd freedom brought back by the baby dove,

Nd we will live by that for the rest of our days,

I will take ya hand nd keep u warm al night,

and when eva u need me,

all u have to do is call ma name,

nd I will b there to do that u desire.

For I know u are my empire,

Nd it will put a smile on ya cute face,

A smile always accompanied with warmth, truth and love,

I will always be there

To shower ya with love.

 

If m nt there to answer,

Do not cry for me,

For the Mississippi is already overflowing with water,

Ya tears will make it worse.

Be hopeful for my return,

For I will always b back for u,

Cos I will never abandon u,

I will forever b wit u

As

I have always wished and desired .

Being with u is a dream come true,

I will give ma all for u to be happy,

because happiness is all I want and desire for you....

Please smile....

the day i shot cupid

It was a long shot
taken after a major
emotional battle...
A series of thoughts
draining my brain
making me feel less of
a person
because i sold my heart 
to Satan, traded it 
for what was another woman's
Which never made sense
except for the fact that it felt
good...
You have made me
your emotional bank and you
most treasured scared piece
of flesh that makes my head
spin and my taste buds explode
and when we talk
between forgotten passages
and take walks in deserted gardens
the arrows you hold to the back
of my heart etches deeper
cuts the arteries holding together
my sanity
and bleeds emotions new to
my heart but brings spectacular comfort
and for you I would do
anythings just so you can
touch my hand again
look deep into my eyes
and say those three most
intangible words in ancient English
then I would know
you are the only person who ever
really got to know the true color
of my eyes
but never really saw the fire 
you lit in them
And just so to end my insomnia
I will hunt down that bastard of a kid
steal his bow, and plant it deep
into your heart
so you could understand
Why it hurts so much
to love you back
In a way I doubt 
you will ever love me in...

True Poets' Punishment (Part 1)

Once in a wonder land I trekked –
Through the chaos and the wreck.
The earth was clothed in a misty layer –
Sown by the heavens’ unanswered prayers.

Cold hard steel, some sort of construction site –
The somber setting ignited my being with fright.
In this ebony that was once so white –
I slept to a hymn (now a dirge,) every night.

I shuddered; in attempt to shake off the opaque oppression –
Born from the theft of all of my precious possessions.
That left me Mute, Blind, Deaf, (predominated by regression,) –
Smashed up and shattered into debris of dank Depression.

Perhaps the sun will shine and goad my valves to thaw – 
Perhaps I shall speak my mind, and unclench my jaw.
Maybe, just maybe, I’ll learn to grow razor claws –
To rip out and shred up my every flaw.
 
But it is I who drew this fiasco, who made this mess –
Who sold her soul, hurt and loved, but never confessed,
Who gave without return, her all, and nothing less – 
A fool and compassion’s slave I am, one would guess.

Fanning wheat in a field of revulsion, (of my own making) –
Bestowed the unworthy, gave and gave more, without taking. 
I grudged and judged, oblivious that I was simply mistaking – 
Growing strong, (for a coward whose heart is breaking.)

In the wonder land once so placid, I descried something eerie –
Cacophonous odd footsteps, fatigue and weary.
“It ought to be the winds rustle,” my cerebration’s theory – 
No living soul dare walk outside, (in a wonder land so dreary.)

But the preternatural noise hissed, and hissed more –
Its echoing murmurs and whispers I could not ignore.
Aghast, I spotted a movement in the sky, (a bird that soared) –
Curiosity held my hand, this bird's destination I shall explore.

I jumped, sprung, ran and raced so free –
Until I felt my pulse beating in my feeble knees.
There ought to be a cause for this bird to flee –
To a wonder land so dreary, this very night, above me.

After an endless chase, it perched on the cold ground – 
I caged my breath, my helpless heart began to pound.
It’s a raven, my bloodshot and teary eyes had found – 
For its glance pierced my soul (and its stare was profound.)

My heels clicked on the floor that was rock-hard – 
Looking around, I found myself in a grave yard.
I carefully walked into the cemetery, (left without a guard,) – 
Into the stack of buried souls, beaten and scarred.

THE WISHING WELL OF A SUN-RISE,

It is...within the tiny things of early morning, that moment breaths alive, it is within the tiny whisperings, that a melodye plays...like the very dear and the antelope, play home on the range.

so goes the melodye of heart beat, that plays quietly the songs of soul,

here a rhyme is born of day-light coming so soon, through the early morning eyes of the moon-light, and the starry dreams of twilight's transitioning...

into the light of a love letter written to dawn.

soul to soul conversing, as in this love letter, the letters just join hands with the words and just march across the sky...and at the end of the rainbow, there be plenty of golden time,

way down deep on the inside,

...as the inspired choir, of a bumble bee, or a butterfly, starts to sing, like tiny things that live,

flower to flower,
blossom to bloom,

watered and deeply cared for...

O' Eden.

I say, deep beneath the surface of a wishing well...where the pennies lay,

I wish a sun-rise.

I LOVE YOU RATU

I am seeing your picture
I miss you
I want to hug you
It’s your fifth birthday
I want to see you
I was not granted
I am far of you

Allah knows I love you.
I love you Ratuku.
See you when you are big enough.
Sometimes I restrained not to see your picture.
I know I would be hurt of not being with you in person.
I know I am missing you so much.
I know I cannot hold you.
I know my tears would be falling.

Later you will understand
You will understand why we are apart
You will understand why I am held not to see you
You will understand why you are taught to hate me
You will understand why when you hear “Ayah” you feel fearful
You will understand why I love you so much

I love you and see you later if not soon.
I love you Anakku.
And you know that I love you!

Weather's Changing

The air is sweet, the sky is clear
I know for sure that summer’s near
Pass my sandals and shades my dear
I’ve joy in my heart and nothing to fear

Winter was dark and long and cold
Not even the sun could break its cruel mould
It rained so hard I’m glad my house could hold
But when winter ended, my heart turned to gold

I’m searching a good spot, my place in the sun
I’m yearning for laughter, compassion and fun
To stretch my long legs, see how far I can run
To find my soul mate - and say “You’re the One”

Well I’ve found a good spot, I’m searching no more
I’m laughing and running until I’m sore
My heart has mended, its really not raw
Now I can say “This is what I’ve been looking for!”

from a father to be

I grew up without a father,
never dealing with it inside
only getting used to the absence
bt the lack did not subside.
i never learnt to fix whats broken
never learnt to be a man
never learnt to swim or sail
never thought i really can.

My father left me only fear
that i was now incompetent
to be the father he was not
to have a child, im hesitant.
But still hope withers not away
that i could be so blessed one day
to hold a gift given by God
and live to have a family.

My father left me only fear
that i might abandon my own
but children i hold very dear
and wish they not be left alone,
to fend for themselves without the guide
but have a father to be shown.
To those who, appreciate
your fathers heart, its not too late
this day is just a reminder,
 that those who have fathers
life treated kinder.

The Freckled Face of a Girl

~~~
Dappled grey horses
sweat crusted and weary
hooves drifting dust
lift a day
passing dreary
The harness bells faded
reigned in at the rill
a cool running brook
near the base of our hill
~
My eyes
I'm a lad
scant older than four
brought visions to mind
full of wonders in store
A wagon decked out
like a big city market
he lifted the side
then he shook out the carpet
~
Our old kitchen door
screamed out
lack of oil
a kettle
clanged gently
just set on to boil
E'er mother's voice shouted
"I think it's the Pox
the old folks have died
I've been digging their plots"
~
"My father's in bed
and they won't let me near"
the stranger walked by
with a smile
mussed my hair
Went in with a bag
full of magic he grows
started mixing a broth
made with god only knows
~
Tip toed on a box
dragged in from the yard
through windows
he folded
gunpowder with lard
The screams of my father
sent tears to my eyes
they rubbed him completely
in spite of his cries
~
They fed him the broth
a few drops at a time
I climbed off the box
with his horses in mind
"The horses love apples"
I turned with a whirl
peeking out from his wagon
the freckled face
of a girl
~
In moments I knew her
a lifetime
it seemed
a most likeable friend
who knew all the schemes
As father got better
t'was time to move on
her father
a doctor
a peddler
a con
~
He'd done us a service
we could never repay
though he sold us an organ
an' stool
by the way
Each year they returned
once or twice
they dropped by
little freckle faced Mary
soon
the girl of my eye
~
They'd rest a few days
with each visit
it's true
she wrote the best love songs
while I wrote the tunes
Then one night it happened
'neath moon and the stars
consummating a love
that would forever
be ours
~
He stumbled upon us
but said not a word
in the morning
so early
fading echoes we heard
Ne'er again did we see them
though rumors
of peril ...
my parents expired
to a place 'neath the barrow
~
Five years had surpassed
isolation and grief
knocked a lamp
from the table
when I'd fallen asleep
The house nearly cinder
an' I felt like the fool
only item I'd saved
was the old organ stool
~
Just sat there and watched
till the sun broke the morn
in the distance
an echo
I'd heard years before
Then over the rise
sweat crusted and weary
two dappled grey horses
on a day
passing dreary
~
The horses reigned in
right next to the rill
that sweet running brook
at the base of our hill
A woman climbed down
took a step
to the glade
the dawning day's sun
streaming in to pervade
~
A light in my heart
jumped a thousand times fold
the smile in her eyes
and the story's been told
The tears
fell in rapture
though nothing was said
embraced
now with Mary
she'd returned from the dead
~
She unhitched the horses
I lifted the side
"The years have been kind"
I said
lifting her pride
"Are you my daddy?"
I turned with a whirl
peeking out from the wagon
the freckled face
of a girl

MY THEME SONG

    MY  THEME  SONG.
I  pray  I  live  long
In  comfort  and  love
These  has  always  been 
My  theme  song,
Since  I  was  young.
Our  strength  is  only  a  test,
While,  the  sense  serves  
The  main  quest.
I  trust  in  all, but  remove  lost  
From  my  voice.
My  Creator  sees  it  all,
I  rely  on  HIM  with  all  I  soil.
Its  a  crucial  point  to  measure
Your  deeds  as  you  breath.
Life’s  brief,
Reason  real  deep  to  achieve
Every  dream
Never  try  to  cheat,
You  would  be  left  with  disease.
The  path  to  win  is  a  flat  you
Should  visit.
                                                                                                      AKEWUSOLA  HABIB.

The lovely Libran

The lovely Libran

Indecision dogs her trail
She’ll always change her mind
Her sense of wonder is so vast
She’s tender and she’s kind
Creative in the way she lives
Her whole life is an art
She can be lazy sometimes too
But she has a lovely heart.

She loves to dress herself in style
Immaculate is she
She’ll always be the peacemaker
For she can’t bear to be
In any kind of situation
Where ugliness is seen
She hates hassles very much
And hates those who are mean.

One to one relationships
She needs them in her life
She needs to have a partner
Or to be somebodies wife
She likes to be surrounded by
Pure beauty everywhere
She weighs her scales so carefully
And always she is fair.

And Then there was you

There was hue...There was dew..
A lot of smiles...& some tears too...
Lot of friends....trusted enemies few...
Known to me was bliss and happiness...
                                                                              And then there was You....

You walked in through the mystical light...
Full of blissful learning and pure delight...
I wished all harm be out of your sight...
I tried to help and be there with all my might...

You had many a story to tell.. ... lies shared little did i know..
One day all that i selflessly gave ...would be turned against my own soul...
I walked beside you in complete faith of all i was told....till God could take no more...
He stole the moments and tore me apart to maybe save and take control...
Why did the truth not come forth from you...i will never fathom...
When all i asked of you was simple facts..and never judged or held your heart for ransom...
In truth we could have served our noble cause...in it's pure light we could have stood so tall..
Why then did you not think to protect my heart...and let it in this well of lies fall..

Did you not but once stop and think of how i might feel...
When you realized all my spirit one day your untruth would steal...
For all the love and care i gave ... i got back a handful of allegations....
Enough to destroy my heart and soul and demolish all my aspirations...
Why i ask my angels did i deserve this humiliation...
So much strife , scathe , suffering and frustrations....
All i gave was undying care and genuine love...stood by you always...
Never did i let you down when needed..never did i walk away when your call heeded...
For all that was shared...Why wasn’t i spared....
To give me an ounce of honesty ..back i wish the person cared....

As life moves on...with some hurt and some hope too.....
As i try and remain to my life's purpose true....
I remember once i had my innocent heart and soul that believed in people and truth..
                                                                        ...And then there was You

Forbidden Love

Tear drops on my pillow
And lonely nights ahead
I'm trying to wake up
But I'm already dead

My nightmare will haunt me
Dead or Alive
I'm gasping for air
But I can't survive

In the name of forbidden love
set me free
In the name of forbidden love
Just let me be

My thoughts scrambled up
inside my racing brain
My horrors are chasing me
Gnawing at my pain

My eyelids are sealed shut
But my heart is pounding
My dreams are taking over
I can't stand this hounding

I'm sorry I love you just kill me
I'd rather die than cause you any pain
So I'll stand with my black umbrella
And pray to be struck in the pouring rain

My heart is a devil decieving
Causing my insides to burst
I wish I COULD ERASE THIS GRIEVING
But its for your love that I thirst

So dry your tears
And close your eyes
Its me with you
I fantasize

In the name of forbidden love
Please let me be
In the name of forbidden love
Just let me be

The Human,The Demon, And The Angel

I'm the one who must stay
I'm the one who must kill you
I'm the one who must reverse time

I am to die when the new moon is in range
I am the one to be your executioner your taker of life
I am to observer and to take note of everything and of every life


Who are you to say I have no future
I say what I please for I am the bringer of death
I want to help I wish to free you I need to save you

There is no more time for my life 
You never had a life to begin with
She was free until you stole her very being

I am the human who must die
I am the demon who only wants her body for it kill
I am the angel who will take her soul once her body is gone

We are in one body
We are in one mind
We are three trapped by one bond

These times are different then the last 
These times are different then when I was young
These times are different then when the earth was made

Oh how we let this control us
Oh how we take our worlds and live for such granted
Oh how we let who we are put fear in our hearts


I leave this to you
I leave this to you
I leave this to you

We have exceed 
We have flown 
We have drowned
We have died
We have lived
We have made many wonders
We have created a new life
We have done evil deeds
We have done good deeds
We have but to wait for the one day
We have but to wait for our freedom
We have each other 
We have nothing but that
We have nothing but each other and to wait 
We have to wait for freedom

LAYAG SUG

I have not seen this sea, which you 
speak of so fondly every once in a while.

but I'd hear the slowed-down breathing,
the long pause
when you tell stories of old people 
that died, of brave men that once 
sailed with their boats
to cross vast continents
and trade,
and then sail again for home
where they’d find their wives and children
waiting for their return.

You are still out there sailing,
and I am here 
hoping you'd reach home soon.
I know where that home is.
But you have to fight to get there.
I could wait for centuries
and be still until 
you're home finally. Don't fret.  
Sail, love, wherever that sea 
with its raging current  
takes you.

And when you reach shore,
You'll find me there standing,
waiting for you.

BALLAD OF THE BAD BOY In MONTANA dedicated to my grandmothers twin sister

Some songs
Are of saddest times
The skies of darkest days
Some words
Bring such discontent
There are no gentle ways
To tell the tale
Without the tears
That tear the heart in two
But I will share
This saddest tale
Of hearts both black and true

There was a widow 
With a son
He was a spunky lad
And when she found 
Another man
The boy turned
Mean and sad.

The maid who cleaned the widow’s house
Saw the what was going on.
How each day the battle raged 
As soon as she was gone.

The man took off
His silver belt
And like a man insane
He beat the boy, he cursed at him 
And called him filthy names.

The mother’s love had maddened him
 He hounded the poor child
Jealousy had filled his head
By hate his heart defiled.

He loved the widow, now his wife
Her son was in the way.
He sent the boy away to school
On that their wedding day.

The boy wrote home--
He hated school
They beat him there and worse
They starved the boy
To punish him
For writing silly verse.

The boy wrote home to plead his case
He promised to be good.
He begged to be at home again
He’d even chop the wood!
 
At the widow’s urging
The man re-read the letter
'He must come home'--his sweetheart cried--
'He's promised to be better.'

The man sent off the widow 
Quick to get her son
She left him on the next train
Before the day’d begun.

The day was hot, the winds were bad
The clouds, they shouted rain
The neighbors said that angels wept
As they hailed the train

The man stopped by to get the mail
Without his widow’d  wife
Another letter from the school
How tiresome was his life!

He put the letter in his bag
And headed his way home
When bedtime came he got it out
He liked to read alone.

'Your son is dead,' the letter said,
The hand was from a man
the school was starving naughty boys
the lawmen had a plan.

The school would close, the boys all leave
But one boy would remain.
The dead boy would be with his ma
When she returned by train.

The man who loved the widow
And took her for his wife
Hanged himself before the dawn
And took his own dear life.

The widow and her son
Returned through beating rains
She walked into that darkened house
And blew apart her brains.

rain

As I stand here in the rain,
The raindrops fall on me and wash away all my pain.
I am the thunder and you are the lightning.


You know who you are and to me that's exciting.
The laughter we share, the memories I have.
Love is growing between us. It has to be said.
Our hearts and minds becoming entwined.
Bound to each other, never to let go.
Then, why are you leaving, distressing me so.
"I'll be back soon darling" you whisper. " Please let me go".
I smile and let go of your hand. My heart is breaking but you will never know.    
" Wait for me" you say as you wave me goodbye.  
My heart is heavy, the tears fall.
The rain comes harder, let it pour.

The Moment

The moment I saw you
Only for a few minutes
Of the site I see
Never realizing my life
Would change for the better of me

My heart was running full speed
Not being aware again
We only had an hour to spare
I know this may sound weird 
But this moment was the day
I got my life on track close to the end

I knew I fell madly in love
When my eyes connected with yours
Standing face to face
It felt like something had fell
Out of heaven from above

This has hit me so hard
Knocking me off my feet
Feeling I need a few minutes to breathe
Only time and space can give
Cause I sense my love running
So much deep

Somehow for that brief moment
You completely blew my mind
In my eyes seeing two different people
With two different personalities
Seem to have different life styles
But only one heart which were completely stolen
In that only one moment
During that one beautiful sunny winter morning

I knew I fell madly in love
When my eyes connected with yours
Standing face to face
It felt like something had fell
Out of heaven from above

That day I knew I had to see you
Only I didn’t know how or when
My heart started beating fast
When you said it was nice to meet you
I hope we can meet again
Wow it was like a blur
You caused my mind to stir
The ground started to spend around
Only I knew I couldn’t make a sound
All I could do was to catch my breathe
So I decided to take a seat and have a rest

I knew I fell madly in love
When my eyes connected with yours
Standing face to face
It felt like something had fell
Out of heaven from above

Oh my gosh what have you done to me
I once was caged
But now your words have set me free
I didn’t know how to react
With these feelings so bright
Only I know I dream of you
Each and every night

I never thought someone would look at me 
The way I see myself in your eyes
I never knew how my movement would change
With you in this life time
I never felt this fire burning inside of me
Nor I never felt this wetness between my thighs
If this feels like love I never want it to end
Cause finally knew the moment
When my life started to begin

Hearts are Young Again

Weary sounds the winter wind, keeping the eyes from slumber,
Far from salvation, and lost to memory;
For waiting by the melting ice, in water ghostly cold
Are things instilled in the meaning of our lives       

 Cast out the fragments of what’s within, cast it out.
And cast out symbols of a moment, cast it out.
Instill to all the wisdom of truth, when its meaning is ever gone,
For I often stand with withered hands and pain in my tired bones

 Give to ones own intent those with concept and vision,
Until we can touch the aged brow and calm the righteous soul, 
Come feel a breeze as spring is born and breathe in the sweet aroma
While lilies grow where a water flows and hearts are young again

THE WIFE

THE WIFE
The fog smoking to the skies
Architecting more grey clouds
The ticking hands of the clock
Day getting old for more sunrays
With the luggage, I slam the door behind

Praying for traffic to fold up
Ugly devils working round my brains
The brakes should strike, screech with anger
Where exactly will my head lay tonight
If the mouth at home still not glued up

Chatterbox for a wife, willing agent of evil
A blessing confused for less in the brains
The litter flows out in the upper outlet
Words enough to fill a river down the ocean
A recorder would be witness at the jury

Noble men climb mountains for their queens
Go miles to fetch water not sleepy lazybone
They dance and kiss at the cocktails
The tape rewinds on my idle brain
Skies dark, at last pillow comfort my head

Tomorrow I fill my boot before the birds awake
Before the cockerel switches her day on I’ll run
Long trip to endless world with no soon return
Lovely note scribbled to my mother, my dear joy
The single woman my heart forever adores

But down on knees, heart to the High King
Miracles of ancient, heard still exist
Angels descend, its urgent or a soul falls
All gadgets at hand, replenish her every part
Or by the walkside, send me the perfect rib

Happy Valentines Day

Roses are red
Violets are blue
Happy Valentines day to all of you
Enjoy all those chocolates,
and share a moment with your loved ones,
Be happy, share that laughter
Share those chocolates, when time comes around
Say I love you to friends,
and family
But most importantly that mate that adores you
Happy Valentines Day once more
Enjoy it this year we have plenty more. <3

It all came down to Love

So today I decided to put my hand on paper
And exhale the invaded privacy of my inner most
Tell of what my forbidden heart to love has been up to
Turning and rumbling inside of me
Creating a turmoil feeding my soul with pleasure

Yes... It is love this poor being of me is trying to express
Residing deep inside the unknown of my heart
The depths even I was scared to adventure
Full of leisure, pleasure and treasure only the believers can discover
Only cos love hurts... true love pains

Anyhow, let me tell of this smile on my face 
The fuel that powers the excitement in my energy
It is one feeling I forbid myself to fear or shut out
In fact I dare my heart to take that leap of faith
For with love comes joy and peace... God’s best creation

I fear not the disappointment love carries cos I’m a believer
I overlook the sadness that lies ‘neath its wings cos I have faith
I don’t mind opening the doors in the sacred space of my heart over and over
For love to reside one more time for God is love and God is in me
I’m ready to let the rivers of love wash over my fears

Love wrote its name across my heart... Next to it I engraved his name
With the brightest colours of the rainbow across the grey skies at dusk
For he is my angel and shall forever remain my very own guardian angel... 
I can proudly say I love loving him unconditionally... THANK YOU

Deirdre

 
Don’t you know Deirdre’s gone? Don’t you know Deirdre’s gone? I can sence her embrace that feels like Tragedy A heart to have, slipped beneath the waves The dark pulse now beckons us closer How many days will this passion bleed away? We will be the ones left to blame Beware we’ve become their prey They say you’re addicted to your pain A lifeless cold barren soul left to die in the rain A whisper too close to the edge A call from the dark Brings out a saving spark An Exodus from her Pain Her Life Spent breathing in Shame A Shadow Call breaks the Silence Am I the one to blame? Don't you know Deirdre's gone? Don't you know Deirdre never said wrong? Don't you know Deirdre's gone? “My Decadence was just for you Though you’d never care what I’ve been through Enter the world were empathy is clandestine A world created by you, just for me What’s Lying in my heart is why You want to through the stone” I call your name towards nightfall’s reign But they take you so far away A dark angel so divine Cursed by Eden’s heart I will avenge every tear An Exodus from her Pain Her Life Spent breathing in Shame A Shadow Call breaks the Silence Am I the one to blame? Don't you know Deirdre's gone? Don't you know Deirdre never said wrong? Don't you know Deirdre's gone? Don’t you know Deirdre’s gone? Don’t you know Deirdre’s gone?

silence abode the quaint structures 
of a meaningful gothic erosion
between a quiet reasoning 

as I opened above the perfect

of a sensitive naught that quivered

tinged with morality that craved 
an infamous pout where you collected 
shells of sadness and compassion 
well crafted amid the calm sea
 
forming a gentle finish abraisive 
an yet shattered feelings abroad

Broken Seashell

Lisa Milligan
A Fragment Of Life
8/21/06 

"Each experience is locked within my heart and only I hold the key..."  


Don’t hurt your daughter
She needs your pride
Don’t hurt your sister
She breaks inside
She feels surrounded by enemies
Please don’t hurt the girl
That girl is me

She left you long ago
Packed up and ran
Ran away from all the pain
She didn’t understand
It didn’t take her very long
When she had to come back
To see all the reasons why
She took that track

She sits there smiling
She’s afraid inside
Of the next hurt inflicted
That she’ll have to hide
She has to be here
Because of her baby son
She has no husband
As for her son's parents
She’s the only one

Don’t hurt your daughter
She needs your pride
Don’t hurt your sister
She breaks inside
She feels surrounded by enemies
Please don’t hurt the girl
That girl is me

You sit and gossip that
She won’t come around
Judgment and criticism
Is all she’s found
She fights the invisible hands
Forcing her to the floor
She fights the instincts of survival
To run out the door

You don’t see her clearly
Looking through your clouds
Looking at the wrong things
Like her bank account
Looking for what she should change
Not what she’s done
Not at the strong, healthy man
Her son has become

Don’t hurt your daughter
She needs your pride
Don’t hurt your sister
She breaks inside
She feels surrounded by enemies
Please don’t hurt the girl
That girl is me

She notices wistfully
The pride in her parents eyes
As they behold the families
In which they have pride
The look that vanishes
As they turn her way
The pride that disappears
And then her heart frays

Broken shells get left behind
Scattered all over the sand
Perfect shells get taken home
Precious treasures in the hand

THE MAINTOP BALLADEER

There’s a man I’d like you all to meet whose Aussie through and through,
From his felt hat to his R.M. boots, he ridgy didge, true blue.
He was born in Roma, Queensland, back in nineteen thirty-three
And his parents were from sturdy stock, a pioneer family.
Station life was in this young man’s blood and one can understand
Why he took to writing lyrics based on things he knew first hand;
Those loved tales of some lad’s ‘Silver Spurs’, the ‘Rutland Rodeo’
And ‘A Time When I Was Mustering’ he penned so long ago.

Chorus
Yes, his heart is in his lyrics this tall man from Injune way
And he’s had his songs recorded by top artists in his day.
Yes, Wave Jackson loves his ballads and mate let me make this clear
 He’s admired in music circles as the Maintop Balladeer.


Old Mac Cormack and Joe Daley both wrote lyrics by the score
And along with Wave and Coster … hell  they made an awesome four.
They all had their songs recorded by Slim Dusty through the years
And these men are all respected to this day by all their peers.
Wave continues this tradition and he still writes to this day
And now picks and strums a Maton in the true bush ballad way.
You will find him at most Musters and he’s happy as can be
As today he shares his talents on his very own CD. 

Yes, his heart is in his lyrics this tall man from Injune way                 
And he’s had his songs recorded by top artists in his day.                     
Yes, Wave Jackson loves his ballads and mate let me make this clear          
He’s admired in music circles as the Maintop Balladeer.

Wave has travelled ‘round Australia and he’ll tell you that he’s sold
On the fact there lots of songs out there just waiting to be told.
He then proved this down in Tamworth when he won a gold guitar
And of all his fine achievements it’s the best he says so far.
It has been a wondrous innings for this gentleman of song
And I hope things will continue and his journey will be long.
He’s a real true blue Australian and they are but far and few
And I’m proud to have him as a mate and share his song with you.

Yes, his heart is in his lyrics this tall man from Injune way                 
And he’s had his songs recorded by top artists in his day.                     
Yes, Wave Jackson loves his ballads and mate let me make this clear          
He’s admired in music circles as the Maintop Balladeer.

the arsonist

he was there just like before 
my mind wandered
as he gazed 
out the window 

as traffic approached 
he opened his jacket 
retrieving a pack of cigarettes 
Winston's his favorite brand 

he would tap the butt 
on the table top 
suddenly he took out a match book 
revealing the red stick

igniting the tobacco flashes before me 
as screams evolved my space 
a man a match a blaze 
my eyes wide shut 

as he controlled the town with his 
hands sirens sounded amidst 
mayhem chaos and confusion 
he had killed again

forcing me to witness 
his wrath once more 
one man one match one blaze 
he had captured me now 

there was no turning back 
this I knew full well 
he would end my life 
why if I ever tell 

why that would be revealing hell
suddenly his eyes turn to coal black 
the darkness covered the diner
as men played pool gathering sticks

and cubes my mind wandered 
my eyes watching the match 
meanwhile the gravity began to pull me
from a standing position leaning 
against a bathroom stall

i had heard the plot the plans
the wretchid toiling of souls
thee arsonist drooled over pages
blue prints and eviction notices 

that read code enforcement
his finger tips were thick full of fungus
i arose from a stand still when he announced
the demolision of a rotten hotel 

claiming his insurance taxes 
surely the tenants would pay dearly
on this autumn day he collected dynamite 
copper wires and lot's of mud and puddy 
destruction would occur from a single match

souls began to reach for me one by one 
the counting of 8 lives to perrish on this date
fearless he approached the workers you you and him 
i remember thinking oh how grim 
one man sitting with two eyes of dark coals
one man one match 8 souls

Night's a groovy lady

Orange lights shine from street lamps, 
orange lights shine on what is paved,
Something about the tail end of our conversation 
left me feeling slightly vague. 

This car has 
Translucent windows, 
like a submarine out at sea, 
the current swallows red headlights
while exhaling shiny, tipped waves 

Looking through the rearview mirror, 
The night was staring back at me. 
She’s a delicate, psychedelic lady
Ripe with her purity. 

Reading the white lights of the city, 
I place a book mark for a rainy day. 
gliding towards the illuminated tunnel 

(traffic sounds)

Plunge! 
Into Bustling traffic, 
and faster paced people,     
I never considered cigarettes, 
until I washed up,
 onto this flickering scene.  

Sirens sound, 
Traffic skates, 
strangers smile and frown. 

I-
got myself a traveling circus, 
of people I call friends. 

Funny how little flares of imagination 
send us shooting to the stars-

(party sounds)


Clash!
like banging of pots and pans
The ruckus in the room, 
has me bouncing off the walls

Police Officers, 
neon green tuxedos-  
Penny Lane.  
we are all just here tonight, dancing, 
along this colorful, crazy row-boat of life.  

Yes,
we are all just here tonight dancing- 
like sunlight touching diamonds, 
we are dancing   

It’s 
Funny how little flares of imagination, 
send us all stringing along.

Mousey

I love my Mousey,
She lives in a field in BrushCreek, Tennessee,
Walking with her her of cattle,
As happy as she will ever be.

Without this there would be only she,
And i could make her as happy as me,

I miss her immensly, for thee i wish well,
For everyday i wish she wont sell, 
And I could show her in the Dekalb County Fair,
I would sell never an ounce of her.
Hehe not even one of her little white hairs.

Even when all the way over there,
Mine she is for no one but me to share, if I do so happen to dare.

Cute as a button,
A button her nose may well be,
Where I first touched her sweet little body,
Not once but twice sweetly,
For wherever she goes I could spot her, along with her sister and mother.

Many a mile away, for she is not at all,
Not at all what you would say a little grayish thing.

But a heifer who grows daily,
Only to shove the motherly tears away.
In my eyes though, she will always be, forever and always, my baby girl, my sweetie,
my beautiful girl, my Mousey

Dont go

Don't go
Stay.
Don't go
Stay.
I said no
But I mean, I don't know.

The black moon is drowning over the opal sea.
And my heart is a giant eagle beyond my will.

Hold my hand,
Please.
Hold my hand,

I said I'm not ready,
But I mean, I don't know.

The red sun is exploding in a plum blue sky.
And my heart is a giant eagle beyond my will.


Sleep with me,
Tonight.
Sleep with me,

I said I'm not sure,
But I mean, I don't know.

The Lightening in my soul is burning, burning burning.
And my heart is a giant eagle beyond my will.

HISTORICAL STORY

I can only see you from a story.
I can feel your face physically in the air.
Drawing, laminating and framing with pride.
The pride that keeps you firm up high. 
I will stand to defend you. 

The truth shall be my weapon. 
The enemy will never win.
Stand firm my hero. 
My beloved swishing blade
sculptured in my heart. 

As my point of loving you
love you like Rasulallah
that Allah has commanded every man.

Keep going my beloved warrior of the high seas.
Your name is eternally inscribed in the Luh Mahfuz.
You are the people of the path.
Walk through that path firmly.

I'll Never Get Over You

If only I had seen it coming 
But I never knew
The day before you left me
I had one more day with you
If only I could turn back time
And bring back yesterday
If only I could tell you
All the things I need to say
If only I could hold you close
And kiss you just once more
If only I could see you smile 
As you walk through that door
Walking down this lonely road
Lost, alone and sad
Holding onto memories and dreams 
That we once had
I need you here to guide me 
For I know I’ll lose my way
Without you I’ll crumble 
Without you I’m not ok
I still don’t understand the reason 
Why you had to leave
I don’t know how to deal with this
I don’t know how to grieve
Looking in the mirror
I still see you in my eyes
And always I will love you
Because true love never dies
Everything I feel inside
Gets stronger everyday
The love that’s in my heart for you
Will never fade away
Everything we shared
And all the memories made together
Will live within my heart and soul
They'll stay with me forever
As long as there is night and day
As long as skies are blue
As long as stars still shine so bright 
I’ll never get over you...

School Bus Tragedy

>>>>>>>>>>>>>>Im here to tell you a story.
                                 Its sad and its true.
                                 I met a girl along the way,
                                 She looked a lot like you.

                                I would see her on the bus going to school,
                                Her eyes were o so blue.
                                Each time she would look my way ,
                                My heart would come unglued.

                                We became very close friends,
                                I saved my money and bought a ring.
                                As i put it on her finger,
                                My heart felt like it could sing.

                                It all came to an end one Friday afternoon,
                                The school bus blew a tire.
                                The driver lost controll of the bus,
                                It rolled and caught on fire.

                                Kids were screaming , let me out,
                                But the doors would not open.
                                As i looked around for my close friend,
                                She had fallen, her neck was broken.

                                It was on that day , my heart did break,
                                I had lost my closest friend.
                                Now i ride the bus alone,
                                Trying to comprehend.

                                As i look out the school bus window,
                                At times i can still see her blue eyes.
                                It makes me feel so sad inside,
                                We never got a chance, to even say good bye.

CUZ FOR YOU I HAVE SEARCHED IN EVERY HEDGE:
FOR WITHOUT YOUR VOICE, MY LEGS WILL WOBBLE LIKE TOYS-

THE TYPE THAT MADE ROMEO RUINING MAD:
COME FORTH AND UTTER ONE WORD,"LOVE,"
AND I SHALL LIVE TO BE IMMORTAL LIKE HEAVEN'S DOVE

 She sat on the beach and held his heart cupped in her hands
young, red, vibrant, and beating with a desire for her..
he bade the doves send it to her across the water
as from the ship's railing he learned over the sea
and her name fell from his lips and was carried 
...across the trembling waves, and she embraced the winds
that carried her name..

Far out to sea the dark hand appeared
and grasped the small ship
which tipped on the swells 
...and billowed the sails
while back on the shore
the sleeping heart of her lover
fluttered and raced
as the north wind took charge
while he clung to the mast
which was ripped from its hold
and flung out to sea
but she held his heart close
as it thumped near her chest
and she called out his name
to the uncaring sea 
who turned a deaf ear
to the maiden's laments
and the heart in her arms 
took its last breath as 
a crimson sun fell from the sky..

Toxic Logic

take my soul and crush it... like you do... every day... You've never looked so beautiful as your figure walks away the sad screech of my broken heart as it ceases to play you took me along for the ride of a lifetime, only to throw me away, every single day, and it is a crime, without reason or rhyme, to push me along with your toxic logic,  abandoning me again with an afflicted soul,  and my heart doesn't know that it is your toxic logic that twists me up inside brought on by your reign, and I can't recall my name Once again in my little hell, all by myself, my very essence betrayed, is there any more to tell? Lie after lie has fooled me, but now I'm done But I still love you, so my pain is far from done. You think that I'm inferior to children, that you can't talk to me, though I've been here since day one, why can't you see? that my existence is for you, and no one else,  and the sickest bit of it puts me in a rage... and i try to turn the page...  But I'm trapped in your toxic logic,  abandoning me again with an afflicted soul,  and my heart doesn't know that it is your toxic logic that's killing me inside brought on by your reign, overwhelmed by pain I see the world in black and white, no color left for me, I gaze across the room, and what do I see? I see yet another soul about to be ensnared, by this predator, but I simply don't care. I lost a part of me, and it used to let me love, But it has been snatched from me by this uncaring troll, and here I am, an empty vessel of defeat. I simply don't know, I truly have been beat. But as I retreat... from anger flows heat... Seared by your toxic logic, abandoning me again with an afflicted soul, and my heart doesn't know that it is your toxic logic that branded me inside brought on by your reign... damaged by pain... The last tether to you broke, I'm free at last. an empty part inside remains, holding me fast. I sink to my knees as the vacuum in my soul starts to shrink, loving you brought me to insanity's brink. I slowly raise my head... and gaze ahead... No longer captive to your toxic logic, that abandoned me with an empty soul, and my heart now knows that it was your toxic logic that tortured me inside under your maniacal reign... which gave me nothing but pain…

Artistic Insecurity

An editor of Twig, I was
The least accomplished one.
I hadn’t taken art for years
Like most of them had done.

The “Head-itor” took care of most 
Responsibilities.
She gave us fifty pages each.
Back then, I was at ease. 

The moment that I started spreads,
I found myself quite stuck.
I looked through older yearbooks, but
I wasn’t quite in luck.

Some photos looked a bit washed out,
And fonts were not much better.
With ruthless eyes, I scrutinized
Each page down to the letter.

“Oh crap!” I said, forgetting that
I’d come for inspiration.
I feared my spreads would be assessed
With equal condemnation.

I searched non-stop for perfect fonts,
Spent hours on grayscaling,
I hadn’t finished half my work,
But deadlines were approaching.

“That’s it!” I said, “That’s quite enough,
You’re being such a child.
Creative insecurity
Made lateness yours go wild .”



And thus I pledged to cast away
My green mentality.
I forced myself to believe once more.
In my ability.

This incident made me become
A Carol two-point-oh
Who’s confident in all she does
And lollygags no more.

how do you have time to be so charming

Oh Romeo ' where out thou is the first of all thoughts 
how do you have the time to enchant ones soul 
your words of sheer beauty come so easily for you 

There must be Juliet at home  in her heart only for you does her passion grow
Yes you are charming and very witty as though you have lived many lives 
many lives over and over again,  to seduce with words you control

you are one with imagination 
you are one of God's creations 

still I am left to wonder 
how many loves you have written too

In writing I love and in writing I can shed my thoughts 
never wishing to hurt another's soul
for it is she I wish you stay , her tears do not flow 

respectfully thinking of how romantic you are 
careful not to be caught in a tornado of thoughts throughout my day 
I am here to write not be captivated by your magic spell weaved  

There's a Juliet I must imagine , beautiful , loyal ,  most stunning ,  waiting for you 
In love she cooks she bakes , she lives she awaits 
For how could one like you not have found true love .

How do you find the time in the day , to love so gracefully in words shared
My thoughts are taken for minutes of the day with you I am impaired
You know who you are don't you , you must , how many hearts have thou Broken Oh Romeo , through desire and lust .

Ballad

Once upon a time, in a land far, far away— I met the person whom I shall love. It was summer season—in the month of May, when I found my dearest dove— my life; my beloved; my prized; my cherished with no name. In that land far, far away, surrounded by the seas, by the name of Puerto Prinsesa, we tasted the sweet scent of its breeze— I and my cherished with no name— as little seraphs of heaven sang in bliss. Stealing glances, that’s all we had in that land far, far away; and also in stealing glances, our tale has ended, as we witnessed ourselves falling away. The sun never rises without bringing me trances of my cherished with no name; the wind always whistles but I never had the chance to hear the voice of my cherished with no name; and so, my heart desires of revisiting our land far, far away— to bring me back to the scenes, to bring me back to my once upon a time that my yearning heart once has seen.

HAPPENING

it's not a decision.
it's a happening.
it's like contracting fever.
you don't decide that you want to have fever.
it just happens to you.
just let it be.
i have silently decided thing.
so i accepted silently and i felt good.
as i think you felt it too.

MATED

If only It were easy for me to part from thee

to go back to a time afore I knew you

ere your beauty and your love were forever in my heart branded

times together in my mind forever treasured, the beauty of you in my soul forever mated


Leaving nothing of all your immediate reminders.

A caress of flames to engulf me

And warm my cold loneliness,

A moment of bliss to bid me farewell

Without ire or regret


Though I cannot claim from thee my heart anymore than I can claim the moon from the skies for your love.


The heart wants what it wants and I cannot even begin to grasp the reasons neither can I fathom the depths of these alien feelings,

Only that should I lose you after I've just found you, I ....cannot imagine going on.

Stagnant

Blue above and 

Blue below,
 
Clumps of clouds,

Falling slow.


Airplanes surge but do not move.

The elephant passes in the room.


I try to sleep, 

to turn away,

Turning pages

yet the story stays


Stagnant.


I look everywhere except at you.

I see nothing, except for you.

Sweet Shadows

Shadows, falling on the street, shadows staring up at me, all I seem to see, are sweet shadows.
You walked out my door; I swear my heart can’t take anymore, so I’m left with my sweet shadows.
Words that we spoke and now all the hurt my heart holds, piercing silence and sweet shadows. 
Seasons change, falling leaves, the wind blows, my heart grieves, my only company, my sweet shadows.
One quick glance into my life, all the change and the strife one strange constant fight and sweet shadows.
One Glimmer of hope fly’s my way, I grab on but it slips away, once again I shall stay, with my sweet shadows.
Memories burn, calm the flame, don’t come back I don’t need the pain; my pleasure to remain, with my sweet shadows. 
Shadows, falling on the street, shadows staring up at me, all I seem to be, one sweet shadow.

SHE DRIVES ME UP THE WALL

SHE DRIVES ME UP THE WALL

She drives me up the wall like a slave-driver
O yes, she does ! but even though she may wield 
the rod in her hand ever so threateningly at me 
At the slightest suspicion of insubordination, 
Leaving me cowering with fear, I love her just the same, 
Perhaps much more than I ‘ve ever loved anybody else before! 
I may ‘ve become certifiable as a result, who knows, 
But whatever the case may be, 
pray don’t judge me harshly until you ‘ve heard me out.

I love her for the same farcical reason that Socrates
Ostensibly loved that cantankerous woman Xantippe.
By temperament and upbringing, I find a woman who 
Stands up to a man much more appealing than one 
Who’s obsequious and complaisant!
What happened to me, therefore, was no accident but a 
quantum leap; I had no control what so ever over the turn of events
That got us this far in our fledgling relationship.
Ever since I met her, my life, which had hitherto been
Fairly peaceful and uneventful, has, all of a sudden,
Taken a dramatic turn.

And like a minx, she has so turned my head around
I can’t tell for certain whether I am coming or I am going!
Suffice to say I’ve been acting up silly and rather foolishly
For a grown up person (I don’t know whether or not I still
Have any semblance of an ego left, what with this 
Attractive je ne sais quoi I find so irresistible about her!)
Oh no, don’t tell me I’ve been doing this all for the
Wrong reasons ! or that I am laying it on thick.
It’s only me who knows exactly what I am feeling.
Besides, I am not talking morals here, I am talking
About what it feels like to love somebody to a fault.
If she did walk out on me now I can guarantee you
That would certainly be the death of me!
I am sure that’s not what you would all like 
To see happen to me just yet unless of course
You’ve been spoiling for my death while pretending to be my friends.
When all else is said and done, I’d rather be
Henpecked than let go of this maverick specimen of womankind
Who has lodged herself in my life uninvited,
Making it her home, and has since then never failed
To drive me up the wall like a slave-driver with her rod.
Not only is she good sport, but like a morning
Star she’s such fun to be with, I promise you!

Ballad of the Bouncing Self

At times I, like a butterfly,
May flit from bloom to bloom,
Or with my whimsy set sky-high
To outer space may zoom.
And yet, when all’s been said and done,
I follow what my fate has spun—
For some may strive and ne’er succeed,
While others simply do the deed.

A Muse impels me on a spree
Of whirling swirling craft
Where poems must not mean but be…
Until I’m going daft.
But words, albeit finely wrought,
Can only catch a passing thought—
For some may strive and ne’er succeed,
While others simply do the deed.

When my reality looks pale
I frolic in a theme
From vivid myth, folklore or tale, 
Where dreams are what they seem.
And there where’er I romp and roam
I always feel a welcome home—
For some may strive and ne’er succeed,
While others simply do the deed.

I’ve often fallen to the ground
And picked myself back up.
I’ve hungered for a loving touch
And sipped from passion’s cup.
My longings, cravings ruled my will;
Still never could I drink my fill—
For some may strive and ne’er succeed,
While others simply do the deed.

A life led wrong, though full of song,
Will cause us to regret,
When pondering the winters long,
Our faults we can’t forget.
And then we’re washed in bitter tears
For senseless youth and wasted years—
As some may strive and ne’er succeed,
While others simply do the deed.

I said I want to live before
I die, in villanelle,
To learn where lies true wisdom’s door
And shun the gates to hell.
Yes, wayward ways can still begin
To seek and find the Way within—
For some may strive and not succeed,
While others simply do the deed.

Let's Talk, Turkey

While a roaming in the gloaming
many years ago,
with steps so jerky I met a turkey
swaying to and fro.

Now being lonely and awfully homely
I hoped that by a chance
my new found friend might help me end
my lowly social stance.

I looked at him so sleek and slim
and he smiled kind of smirky.
So I said as my heart bled,
“C’mon, let’s talk, turkey.”

He spoke not never and I so clever
just couldn’t figure him out.
Maybe he’s mad or maybe just sad
and I started to moan and pout.

His eyes now gleamed and it made me steam
to see such an elegant bird
sitting so high with a sneer in his eye
and uttering not a word.

Now Thanksgiving was coming and I was slumming
and going to have hot dogs again.
I thought t’would be nice to have turkey and spice
with a little dressing mixed in.

So to home I did run and fetched out the gun
and was quickly back on the scene.
"Now let's talk, turkey," I said kind of smirky.
Quoth the turkey, "How ghastly mean!"

Well that broke the ice for the turkey was nice
and we talked for an hour or so.
And when he said bye I thought I would cry
for I didn't want him to go.

Then my good old temptation sent up this sensation
of never again seeing my friend.
The gun it seemed bigger but I still pulled the trigger
and brought my poor friend to an end.

Then I thought, as likely as naught,
my friend feels bad about dieing
for as he had fell he had made my heart swell
because he was steadily crying.

Now he is dead and my heart is like lead
and my brain feels kind of malicious
but I won't forsake it because my mom baked it
and the white meat was just delicious.

Far My Love

I am trying to run this race
Reach to your pace
beating all odds,guess...
My love, my half


I fight hard to forget,
your smile I always get
then my heart sprints miles
innocent like nuns in veils,
missing you in my soul her hails

Lonely, I don't care
for your love is rare,
I know I am here and you are there,
sacrificing my love, I don't dare
I am fresh like a desert- bare
At your photo I stare
Never forget me, it isn't fair
doing that my heart you tear.


To lose you is my fear,
I will always remain in tears

HOW SHE LOVES

Life's journey long
Need for solid ground
Many rise and fall

She loves me true
On her love I depend

Together we're free

ART IS MORE THAN MEDICATION

A creative artist would be
If is given a chance to explore more possibilities
Art is not lovely but a love of life
Channeling art for higher service
Would be great one and good one
Indeed. Art is more than medication
Let us lead the way
Let us sail together all the way
Art of sailing is happiness every day
It touches the way you feel
The thing you think
The emotion you say
And the companion you have!

Strangers

your fangs in me again
your venom flows inside

i think it's time
to say our goodbyes
on the road again
no place to hide
just another fight.

well we'll yell
full of anger
all the world is full
of danger
well we'll shout
i'm burned out
and we'll leave this
world as strangers
well we'll scream of 
broken dreams
it all ends
sooner than later!

you've let me down
what else is new?
another day
just you wasting my time
so tell me all your lies
you'll leave me here to drown
i shouldn't have expected anything
less from you.

well we'll yell
full of anger
all the world is full
of danger
well we'll shout
i'm burned out
and we'll leave this
world as strangers
well we'll scream of 
broken dreams
it all ends
sooner than later!

you've got me by a
thread
i'm barely hanging on
again
you'll spin me around
and then
you'll cut me down
again
you always liked to play with my
strings until they're broken.....

well we'll yell
full of anger
all the world is full
of danger
well we'll shout
i'm burned out
and we'll leave this
world as strangers
well we'll scream of 
broken dreams

Don Johnson's heart attack fix

Don Johnson’s Heart Attack fix Oh he drank and he smoked and lived through a war, His arteries were blocked so they said, Massive heart attack got him, almost for sure, Chest tromping horses , walking the more, Almost crushed him to death, Driven by ambulance hundreds of miles, A truck sideswiped it, a pest, Up onto the footpath under awnings with style, We aint got to the hospital just yet. Doctor he said “stay in your bed,” “You know them big bloody stop signs,” So he went to bed for 2 years or so Fred, His heart was a thumping those lines, A book did appear that altered his fear, Vitamin E and the heart, It was around 1973, oh dear, Grabbing at straws from the start, Two thousand milligrams did he take, The daily dose fixed him, Went opal gouging at Lightening Ridge, Almost buried, death by whim? The side effect was energy bent, You now felt so alive, Your little friend beat you out of bed, Pre viagra’s sexual drive. Don Johnson ANTIOXIDANTS ARE GOOD FOR YOU AT THE CELL LEVEL REPAIR... I was amazed in the improvement in my Dad he got another 20 years out of that worn out heart, his hardening of the arteries improved. He was always one for doublng treatments for best effect, the Book should still be in production in the US. "Vitamin E and the heart" The book got you back on your feet and sent you back to work:) My mum is annoyed that she cant take vitam E with her wolfren medications, she was on Vitamin E almost 40 years. Seems the arteries improve the flow of blood and it thins the blood too like asparin. Ask you doctor can you do it?
I worked with a guy in the eighties who had a heart attack, I told him of Vitamin E, he was rejuvenated by the vitamin, and very pleased with himself!

FLOWERS ON A FRIDAY

It was bucking bulls and cowboy busting broncos
And the challenge that accompanied each ride
That consumed the heart and mind of my young cowboy
And this fact my Buddy never tried to hide. 
I recall the time we met in Kelly’s diner
He was busted up and feeling rather sore
But the cheque that paid the tab that I presented
Seemed to him to somehow even up the score.

He had eaten there that week and got acquainted,
And I somehow got to know this cowboy’s mind
while the flowers that he gave me on that Friday
Surely showed beside his toughness, he was kind.
We were married in the summer six months later,
On a Friday I recall so very well,
Because Fridays he would always buy me flowers
And then go and ride those bulls and broncs from hell.

Buddy always bought me flowers on a Friday
As he knew I feared the rides that lay ahead
But my man his heart and soul was in his riding 
And I loved this cowboy that I planned to wed. 
Yes he always bought me flowers on a Friday
And I loved this cowboy that I planned to wed.

All our friends had shared that special evening with us
And we raged and partied well into the night,
Then we slipped away to share the morning hours, 
Til the dawn rose and revealed its splendid light.
We both showered and had breakfast at the roadhouse
Laughed and shared the joy that comes with wedded bliss, 
But I sensed a certain tiredness in my Buddy
And I prayed he’d give the ride that day a miss.

Buddy drew the brindle bombshell riders hated
And that beast exploded when it left the chute,
Twisting left then right and suddenly it stumbled
And my Buddy he was crushed by that great brute.
When it came to say goodbye to my sweet lover
There was one thing that I vowed I’d always do 
I would always bring him flowers on a Friday
And I’d tell his child about his father too.
.
“Bud I’ll always bring you flowers on a Friday”
That’s the one thing that I vow I’ll always do.
Cause you always brought me flowers on a Friday
And your child will always bring you flowers too. 
Yes I’ll always bring you flowers on a Friday
And your child will always bring you flowers too.

My love, come marry me, and be 
My wife forever, and we will 
Cherish and treasure each others 
Company and compassion eternally.

And we will sit and watch as other 
Couples try to Follow and strive to 
Have a Loving marriage and 
Relationship Like ours.

As I can, I will bring you more love 
And happiness then you could ever 
Conjure in your peaceful mind.

Most trustworthy words on our wedding 
Day, my love for you princess is true and 
It will shine though on this very special day.

I need a women with your prestige and 
Beauty and it will always be my duty 
To be there for you in every stumble and 
Tumble you may come across.

Chance to be your husband, and you would
Never have to worry about any thing again 
Because I would always be there to lend a hand.
These words on this paper are my heart and souls
True feelings. With every word you read I truly pray 
That you will be my wife and true love forever someday.

A Sad Attempt

Wander and meet in wicked wind
They cut their teeth on broken nails
Walk across golden pond in sin
Trail of tears on glacial lake pales
In comparison to his frozen heart 

The heart of the damned chained forever
The heart of the damned pained forever

Pains me to think of them outstretched
Those arms of love, those arms
Brought me to believe far fetched
Dreams of love did some harm
Bleak shores broke on the edge

The heart of the damned chained forever
The heart of the damned stained forever

Surely you have heard his tale traveler
In your heart you knew it was true
Blue crystals of iced saline unravel
In a pool all that was left of Hue
His grave beside hers long overdue

The heart of the damned chained forever
The heart of the damned pained forever
The heart of the damned

My One and Only

A distance far beyond my youthful knowledge
Yet a concept in my grasp of understanding
The words were senseless until you put meaning to them
My life if full
My heart is warm
My soul content
Not a star in the night sky shines as bright as I
No single person knows
How you make me feel
The one I want forever and always
Someone who’s heart is big and soul is kind
A man who stands his ground
But never plays around
This is you I’ve found
Never again
Shall I love another
As I love you
Through thick n’ thin
Again and again
My dear don’t ever fear for I’ll never let you go
Without letting you know
My heart is yours
You may do what you please
As long as you see
That you are a part of me
As I am a part of you
I'll never be lonely 
As long as I have you
My One and Only

The Summer Breeze

One thing is certain about summer
It never last forever
Be that it may sometimes be a bummer
You will always remember the weather

The ocean breaths 
As you sometimes hear
Through the summer breeze
And the starry nights are clear.

Sweat and games are ever more real
With a summer breeze
It’s the coolness you feel
Which provokes a peace?

For it’s the memories you’ll steal!

What can I say

I know I wrote about Richard before, but his words have inspired me so much with his beautiful words of wisdom and truth. I don't know much about poetry, but I know wisdom when I see it, and this is what this world needs so badly.


What can I say

What can I say
I read his wondrous words
They bring my tears a flowing out
Each part of me is stirred
He writes in simple English
Yet reaches to my soul
I read the words or Richard Nnole
And they make me feel so whole.

I know I’ve wrote about him
In a poem once before
And yet I have to write again
To tell you all, once more
That with the wisdom words he writes
He so inspires me
He speaks of life, and love, and light
And thrills me endlessly

Ten languages this man has learned
While I struggle with one
His wisdom is a rare delight
And when all’s said and done
I place him on a pedestal
I’ve not done this before
But I’m addicted to his poems
Each day, I love them more.

Soulmate's

Like a breath of fresh air 
you breathe new life into 
me.

Picture an ocean wave 
upon the shore, your 
love brings me hope...

Energizes me like a storm.

Why is it we can't be apart ?

Could it be we share more 
than just love ?

As true as the sky is blue,
not a cloud in the sky could 
ruin you.

Your beauty captured in an 
essence of light that shines 
so bright, you keep me safe 
and warm all night.

Look deep into my eyes, 
a reflection of you.

Could this be...

Two people who feel the 
same, can't be apart no
matter the day.

Seconds, minutes, 
hours together.

Never apart, 
no matter the weather.

A love so pure felt in 
places beyond, connected
two souls beating as one.

Chipped and Cracked

I did not want to be this way
I want to be like you
I want to fit in with the world
Begin my life anew.

I hid behind the golden rules
And left my heart to die;
I lived in darkness without love
And never asked for why.

I dared not gaze into her face
Or reach out for her hand;
I walked away instead, because
It’s not the way it’s planned.

Instead of love, I felt my tears
They burned upon my cheek;
The unseen tears behind the mask,
A smile that seemed so meek.

But then in her I found love’s joy
Released; my heart could feel,
My soul, at last could touch romance
And know that love is real.

That fragile smile so chipped and cracked
With nothing left to hide;
In that moment all shame has gone,
My tears replaced by pride.

I Can Be Your Superman

I've seen how 
he miss treats 
you...

He's always 
making you cry.

He leaves you lonely,
instead of holding you 
tight.

He rather hangout with 
his friends, then spend 
quality time with you...

And I can't bear
to see you like this 
anymore !!

I can't bear to just
stand by, as he keeps
breaking your heart.

It's time I put that S
on my chest, and 
come save you.

Treat you like 
a real man should.

Leave him in the past,
he doesn't deserve you.

I'm the answer
your heart seeks...

Come with me.

You Came to Me Oh Lord

If what I feel is true
Don’t know how to explain
That my heart was heavy once
And didn’t know what to do

I was gloomy and darkness fell
 over me, all at once
I thought that I  was through
And was going straight to hell

Chorus

But then you came to me
And entered in my heart
And now that I am free
Promise with you to never part

I need you, Lord, to know
How desperate I did feel
Didn’t think that I would make it
And saw it all so real

The bad became the worse
And the worse became so real
And their teachings that I heard
Never happy would make me feel

Chorus

But then you came to me 
And entered in my heart
And now that I am free
Promise with you to never part

My heart became a stone
Didn’t know that I could feel
This LOVE that you give me
And my sins away you peeled

Now I’m grateful, Lord
And full of love I feel
Not only for you, God
But I feel I love the world

And most important, Lord
I feel I Love myself

Because

You came to me, Oh Lord
And entered in my heart
And now that I am free
Promise never from you to part

And become so lovingly
And stretch out my hand to thee

No matter what it is you feel
Prayer will set you free
So believe and faith will never fail
And let God’s love in you prevail

The Story Of A Slum

The beauty of liberty itself was happy,
And among the state there was no enemy.
Food poured out as miracles from the heavens,
And our city was rich in abundance,
But into the dark valley in which the slums dwelt,
The poor grew rich in hunger and want. 

The battle of the slum,
Began the day a new world order had begun,
In which the heart of the city recognized the government,
As her enemy. 

The bad environment became,
The heredity of the next generation to come.
Democracy in which lies in the heart of our city,
Has transformed in debris, lying in a ruin.
The pursuit of happiness,
Was shut forth from our eyes,
And darkness became our everyday dwelling,
In the Slum.

The New World Order,
Has raped the heart of the city.
Brother turning against brother,
to fulfill the pleasure of his flesh.
Our city cried out in distress,
As she was raped,
Lifting her hands up, crying out for her fate.
Weeping for her people,
Who have been lead astray and no longer live,
In the purity and love she has once granted,
But in the fate of the New World Order,
Her people have been brainwashed into a path of death.

Her eyes have been gouged,
Her veins have been pierced,
And riots have been unleashed in the mist,
Of her beloved spleen.
Her blood has spilled forth from her wounds on the soils of the earth,
As all of heaven weep and mourn.

She has fallen,
Turned into a slum of forsaken.
The New World Order has crushed her in her mists,
And forever she will weep,
Until her people humble themselves,
And turn back to the mother of their nations.
Little by woe, 
She lies in sorrow,
Enslaved by her enemy,
Her carcass lies on the road,
Deserted and crucified upon slavery,
As the Valley of Ravens,
Pluck through her debris,
Now known as the city of death,
Behold,
The New Tree of The Slum.

Embracing His Wrath

The great deceiver picks one
To manipulate and bare his son.

Something goes wrong, she won't have it
So she runs away from his havoc

She refuses to commit to his will
He curses her to the Island Seal

A place to give in to the evil
Where she meets a man named Cecil

The evil one under a mask
To deceive is his ultimate task

Through his eyes she can tell
Looking through unmasking hell

In his furious anger he breaks her neck
Her soul is lifted to her lord ship

Her body is given a second chance
Without recollection of this dance

He places her under angel guards
Marking her under the stars

Her torment will not go unseen
If she goes back she will...scream

It Hurts

It hurts to know that you're gone

It hurts to think I didn't get to talk to you before you were taken
my heart is crushing, my mind is going crazy
their both trying to answer the question"what can i do?"

it hurts to know that I'll only be seeing you in my dreams now
my heart an my mind cry out " what can I do?!"

as they cry out, tears flow out
Its just hurts to know that you're gone

Sick

One night a man said to his son your friend is really sick
The child pondered this and asked can he be fixed

It isn’t as simple as that my boy
Why he’s not a doll or a simple toy

Secondly the child pondered what was the matter
Stomach swelling and cerebral contusions from a Horrible clatter 

A drunk man going home one eve
Didn’t mind help or watching his speed

So he was just in the wrong place
The boy was young and chase

A bruise was all the drunk man suffered and mental grief
Now the boys friend now enjoys a painless Eternal sleep

A grown man one day entered a grave yard and promised
A point that he nearly missed

The point of is statement was that he would never let a man do this
So he set about securing himself as a prohibitionist

The young man accomplished a good many laws indeed
Until he found that a drink was all he would  need

He got sick, ill rather more like a severe headache
Aspirin was out of stock and if not treated could result in a state

So he new that a drink would thin his blood to relieve pain
That was against his word, promise, and his claim!

So he did! Later found out that drink saved him
He had a blood clot in the brain would have slain him

He sought to utilize his skills to bring back alcohol use
Though not to over exceed or abuse

He won his endeavor with prohibition and drank responsibly
Taking away keys and driving licenses to the weak and wobbly

Though that man thinks of his friend he can’t take back his factions
Every night asks forgiveness for this transaction

On the FUTURE

The Vet

A forgotten time he lived
 A place of love and smiles
  A place of family and friends
Young and full of life
  He was sent to a forgotten war
    His life to be changed forever
Doing what was ask of him
  The pain in his heart began
    Battleing fear and what he was sent to do
He returned to a time of resentment and hate
  He endured the nightmares and the unbelievers
    Standing on the edge looking down
She took his hand and led him away
  Teaching him to smile again
    Calming his heart with compassion and love
She taught him that life was possible
  Unchained his heart and entered
    He live today because of her
You light up my life
  Their song

Woods, great place to hide from bullies

Beneath the soil lay our roots
Multi-legged insects walking on moss
Working hard to get the fruits
Like lost souls running to the cross
Or hungry new army recruits
With no care of profit or loss

We are the bugs
Commission on narcotic drugs
Watch as we steal the rain
Plants are ruining our brain

We feast together in the swamp
The spiders just want to push us around
They see us and want to stomp
We hide under the ground
I’m here, no fear of the chomp
It’s our other way around

We are the bugs
Commission on narcotic drugs
Watch as we steal the rain
Plants are ruining our brain

One day I hope it will change
The flower tell us one day
Not to far gone to rearrange
Apex of the sun’s way
Move to the balkan mountain range
Rather than be part of the buffet

We are the bugs
Commission on narcotic drugs
Watch as we steal the rain
Plants are ruining our brain

The Way It Should Be

                                       The Way It Should Be

I fell in love,
  In the process I fell down.
I crashed into the unknown,
  As I crashed into the ground.
There has to be another way,
  To escape this deafening sound.
So I searched and searched,
  Until a better way was found.

This way may hurt me.
But it will be great to leave.
There is no other way for me to see,
There needs to be space in between.
There is no other path,
Forget about the aftermath,
This is the way it should be.

I saw you today,
  But suddenly I went blind.
My heart went stone cold,
  I realized you are not my kind.
I know now,
  There is somebody else I need to find.
So my heart and soul,
  Will just leave you behind.

Jock

Jock.

Now Jock he was a friend of mine
In those good old army days
When teenage boys were herded in
And made to change their ways
He told me one fine summer’s day
With a big blue sky above
"I'm glad that I'm a soldier boy
This army life I love".

They shipped him off to good old Nam
Placed a rifle in his hands
And said "now you're a soldier boy
I hope you'll understand
We're fighting those old Vietcong
You've got to see us right
You don't know what it's all about!!!
Nor us, just go and fight"

Poor Jock ain't with us any more
God bless his poor old mum
Our lad he was a forward scout
No use his bloody gun
As the flying metal put him down
Our jock the hero died
As politicians wined and dined
So many tears were cried.

Being an Artist

------------------------------------------------
Have I not told you that what you mistake
for madness is but the overacuteness of the senses?
- Edgar Allen Poe, “The Tell-Tale Heart
------------------------------------------------

I have seen men forget to Look at themselves
And ponder on their souls and their hearts:
There they sit and smirk and giggle
At the frailties of fellow man
And at the fallibility of another.

Through misty dawn till dusk
Their lips move with stealth
Defaming and cursing at ease
Playing with the Cello of Death.

"He is insane, you can wager on that,"
"A bastard, he thinks like a swine,"
"He is spiritually dead, sold for cowries,"
Atrocious words from evil tongues.

A poet like me has been so addressed
Since my thoughts and ways are irrational:
The artist from Plato's time to present
Has lived under despicable sight.

Artists are strange people
In art they have found themselves;
In art they have found truth, happiness-
So, why call them mad? Why call them mad?

The persecutors burn with evil and delight,
And they are of the perfece breed, they think-
The best corn in the stack, hear them sing
The artist's head wedged beneath their legs.

I don't do the things we used to do.
I don't say the things we used to say.
But yet my heart won't forget...I will never forget all the time we spent.
You will always be my little best friend.

I don't know when we will see each other again.
Will you understand the reasons why you left?
It was my plan to watch you grow each day.
I am so sorry it didn't happen that way.

I don't laugh the way we used to laugh
And I'm not part of the things you do each day.
But my heart won't forget...I'll never forget all the time we spent.
You'll always be my little best friend.

Wings Of Love

When life seemed so upside down...
and the love in me stayed cold...
you soon came around,
on wings of love you rode,

Right into my heart and found...
that empty place love grows,
now in my heart I share the sound...
of a song not left untold,

In you I've found true love...
that makes my world complete,
a love worth singing of...
with thoughts so warm and sweet,

As I thank dear God above...
for sharing you with me,
may we ride on wings of love...
forever through eternity,

When life seemed so upside down,
and the love in me stayed cold,
you soon came around......
on wings of love you rode.

NO FEARSOME ISLAND

I love the island.
Island is no man.
When peace is none.
Beautiful island.
With beach.
And white sand.
Before I don't feel the fear.
Fearsome here.
Fearsome there.
Fearsome tell.
Old business dear.
Trade with with slavery.
That's only history.
Shouldn't happen today.
Tomorrow would be great easy.
No abduction.
Fearsome no more.
I love you peace.
Layag Sug!

His hunger

His hunger:

Would you offer your jaw?
Would you offer your lips?
Would you offer your tongue to feed the hungry wolf in wait?

He howls in agony as he lays in the blood red brier bush.
His limbs contort as he transforms into a Herculean beast.

As he opens his amber eyes, he sees you, His thirst speaking from the deeps of his stomach.

You plead trying to reach the human inside.
“I would offer my heart to the tortured man behind the wolfs eyes.”

It grows silent, his face twists, and his body shakes.
With one slash your blood spills across the brier patch.
Your soul now sleeps with the wild roses as he feeds.

The wolfs hunger subsides but the man inside dies, haunted by the sound of your sweet voice that cried.

“I would offer my heart to the tortured man behind the wolfs eyes.”

Night before battle

Optio's! Centurions! Lend me your ears
But finish your rations and down your beers

For tommorow awaits the adventure of a life time
We battle our enemies for many bloody crimes

So tonight go home and bed your wives
Because some of you will lose your lives

Fill your bellies and admire your friends
For they will follow you to all your ends

forever and always I love you

everyday I wake to your face
your soft skin set in a smile
you make my heart pound 
and my pulse race
and I blame you

you make my knees weak 
when you smile that smile
when stare at me like 
I'm a rare Jewel
and I blame you

my fingers tremble as they reach 
your arms pull me in
it's cold outside 
I snuggle close to your warmth
my knees shake harder
I blame you

Next time.....
No music plays
It's quiet and I read
eyes swollen from the fight we had
and from the tears that fell out of my eyes
I blame you

I think
and think

and remember
the time we kissed
the time we danced 
the times there was no music and we still danced 
the times when I was scared of the thunder 
and you held me

I remember
what I want to forget is Goodbye
But I don't think I can say it
My heart burns when I dare to 

I want to feel your arms
wrap around me 
and your voice whispering in my ear
your lips on mine
I blame you 

that my heart is broken
that it swells when I think of you
that my legs still shake and quiver when 
I find you on the street

tears spill from my eyes
I pick up the phone, 
my fingers lingering over the buttons
i can't dial 
want to
can't....
I miss you

My heart can't take it....
more tears
my sobs breaking the quiet
sobs broken by the phone

it's you
you say you're sorry
I smile just at your voice
I've missed it
You sound like you've been crying

we were always alike that way
You say another thing
I wait, wanting to hear,
but scared

you say....

you remember
the time we kissed
the time we danced 
the times there was no music and we still danced 
the times when I was scared of the thunder 
and you held me

you've missed me
we both laugh sadly
I say that 
I've missed you

we smile, 
we imagine it 

I love you....

but I don't say it out loud...
at least, not yet.

but, I love you
forever and always

forever and always

you arent

You arent best and beatiful
You arent reach and smart
And even worse than medium
But heart is now conquered 

You are not best and beatiful
Not stable and not young 
You arent so comfortable
But you all what I love

You arent soft and mystical
You dont deserve admires 
But right now  I am wondering  
How to forget your eyes

I thought, you like a wind
Will pass and leave me pease
You stayed all lonly nights
In heart and salty eyes

I thouhgt it is really nothing
When we together walking
You taught me just reverse
Without you I am lost

You are my spoiled life
And shiness of my eyes
You are diagnos clinical
And your return is critical

I saw them once!

It was monday afternoon and a cool breeze parted my hair like a blooming flower
Long as my hair was it looked magnificently golden as it shown with power

Sweet summer sweat gleamed off of my skin as I ran through the field
Endless energy and spirit my presence could wield

Just in front of me skipping as she pleased. 
My childhood soul mate the goddess Genivieve.

Hand in hand we danced and giggled without a care in the world
My first crush was a tomboyish little girl

Silly as it may sound but the truth is this
She made my heart jump and my legs twitch

As the sun wound down into eve
The colors in the sky was a masterful weave

Just as the orange and purple sky grew darker with the passing hour
Angels flew after the fading gold tower

I knew she saw them too! So we talked with smile and gleam
Could we have shared the same wonderful dream?

I knew then on that we were supposed to be
Though now she is much more than a memorie

Every now and again I find myself looking at that same setting
Imagining the girl I once new at our childhood wedding

Now she sits at those same gates and stares into my eyes
while I sit here and blubber and cry

That is not only what she does for me during my time
Her hands steal these keys and formulate rhymes
                    (David Welch 10 years old)

SERENITY HUG

I allowed you to stand at my back..
Moving your arms on circles in tact..
slowly it landed on your waist..
I lean unto you, your scent clang to me..

Filling my nose, masculine and musky..
I did not utter any word nor any sound..
listening only to the quiet rhythm of your heart..
Your chest in a regular rise and fall..

I feel nothing but deep serenity...
Enveloping and enclosing me in warmth...
I closed my eyes, enjoying the moment..
Hoping to last, hoping to last...

La lumière des étoiles d'ambre-

For years I had desired to 
write a thing of beauty, 
yet beauty, as always, escaped me… 
for beauty as I found through 
experience and misery, 
is merely the plaything of the beautiful: 
the acrimonious agent 
of their delicate deceit,
invoked:
“La lumière des étoiles d'ambre…”
unattainable to all, reluctantly fey, 
betrayed by our delusion 
and indefinable inertia,
invoked:
“La lumière des étoiles d'ambre…”

Books

Books are a way of learning a trade
Books tell us stories, poetry, and plays

Books entertain our vast minds to the fullest
Books are in my opinion the coolest!

Books describe people of the past
Books are abundant at home and in class

Books bring home dragons and ghouls
Books aren’t apart of uneducated fools

Books represent a means to an end
Books are there when you haven’t a friend 

Books are hard and soft sometimes
Books are in brail to educate the blind

Books will be here and with me forever
Books without you doesn’t bring us together

You stole my heart and used it
claiming we were special 
turned around, abused it
beating it down with a threshold

so blinded by the actions
I shouldn't of been so blind
your lies and games caught up
yet I can't get you off my mind

all I want is to forget you
and my heart returned
because all along you held the lighter
it was my pride that was burned

so do me one last favor,
and quit your empty apologies
you have what you wanted
I'll just keep the memories.

something about keats

I gathered the sheer notion that true emotions bottled beyond one's
own soul creates untimely gestures
not lived out through human actions through human emotions we are then driven to a calm rapture of emotional madness balanced within the mere naught of
needing or desiring a taunting
nature filled with lust why one 
mustn't consciously consume such closeness for another's soul without feeling foolishly wild that one's own
breathless panting  could be hopelessly taken away in an
instance by thought to be therefore  
left alone with only a fathom of a profond memory of the
souls own inner most passionate  
heart while entering a life force of
it's own to be catered lest we forget the bountiful energy a source of pure compassion an intimate wanting nurturing craving to be loved

The Battlefront Soldier

Tall and strong;
Always pushing on.
Never once looking back,
Straight up and stiff back.
My heart was and is yours,
But you turned me down and sent me away.
You might be military, baby,
But I don’t care.
Hold me and love me, but leave my heart there.
I want you to be mine, but distance is your barricade with which you hide.
I fear you’ll hide behind it forever,
With or without my dreams.
I see you walking away or standing on enemy lines,
Looking back onto my side of the fence and wondering to cross it or not.
You have your gun, you have your uniform, and you have your armor. 
You doubt me because of what happens with others, and you ignore the others who have succeeded.
Why not give me a chance?
Let me show you I can be who you want.
Ignore just letting me be a distance away. 
Please; please I beg you; don’t walk away and leave me as I am.

To see his godly will bewilder your love senseless 
So close your eyes and envision me

what follows darkness

I think i'm dumb sometimes
because i fall into your eyes
you have a way of playing with my head
make such a mess inside my mind
i can't make sense out of all these lies
you won't be happy until i'm dead!

Just follow the arrows
the old roads are broken
listen careful can you hear
the angels screaming?
Destroy or fade
the choices that we make
will you hold onto me tight
until this darkness starts to fade?

I get so scared sometimes
because you like to dress up in disguise
you have a way of breaking my heart
i feel it beating less and less
i couldn't see it from the start
that you won't be happy until i'm dead!

Just follow the arrows
the old roads are broken
listen careful can you hear
the angels screaming?
Destroy or fade
the choices that we make
will you hold onto me tight
until this darkness starts to fade?

I think you thought of me blind
nothing more and nothing less
shed your skin all of the time
but never the one who could ever confess
you have a way of crying all the time
would you be smiling if you learned that i'm dead?

Just follow the arrows
the old roads are broken
listen careful can you hear
the angels screaming?
Destroy or fade
the choices that we make
will you hold onto me tight
until this darkness starts to fade?

The dustbowl troubadour

My tribute to Woody Guthrie.

The dust bowl troubadour.

Once when I was just a stud
I loved the folky crowd
I would listen well to Bob Dylan
[I immersed him in a shroud]
Then Donovan, and Joanie Baez
I loved them and their ways
Through Them I found my legend ‘Woody’
Oh, these were happy days.

Old Woody he inspired them all
All the folkies of that time
And me, I just adored the man
His rhythm and his rhyme
I love the things he sang about
That Dust bowl troubadour
Two thousand songs they say he wrote
Me-thinks it might be more.

As Woody rode those railways lines
He would fruit pick and he’d sing
He always carried his old guitar
As to poor folk he would bring
Sweet laughter and much happiness
For those his heart did touch
And all those dust bowl refugees
They loved this man so much

The War General..Not Just another Field Marshal

He is the African War General,
After his massive Digestion of Seven "JUMBO" Spliff Joints and more,
The sage wont forget to mention his Gulp-in of four pints of dark 'Wicked' Rum before 
His Very taste of a Healthy,Well-Balanced Breakfast,
His soul must be very Strong or Twice this Dead..'Once a soldier must I die a 
soldier'..Words that put the heart of man to rest.

To carry-on...thus to Tarry-on...We must Carry-on 'Words I learnt from The very Lips of 
the King of the Clan..He Truelly Tarried-on,
In Tarrying-on what shall we do...Bowing to worship 'Man' what oxygen shall we breathe,
How many campaigns did He Launch,
Sitting before this campfire chanting war Slogans,Songs and corrosive War Slangs,
I believe it was his very words that made those Flames and Sparks leap this High,
In the battle's very heat did he Unsheath the Heads of Three War Chieves and more.

He is the African War General...
Please do imagine him as he Emerges so strongly from the burning coals that attendeth 
the paths of a locale warlord,
Steaming red foaming blood...It is a hard sight..Really not too Dark a sight for an 
Intelligent promising Lieutenant,
Who took that last life saving accurate shot that saved 'The-Then-Fiercest-of-War-
Generals,
Who slung that same lethal...killing shot..Pumping in Hot-Lead into the same Man we all 
slaved to Save.
The Sundry Deeds of a Highly Martial Mind...Appraising Salient Field Marshals and More.

I am a Witch

I am a witch!
Though not in the way you may think.

I have a gift of magic
though not with a wand.

I fly threw the night sky
though not with a broom.

I am a witch!
My poetic words lift others into the air
and send them to different lands.

I am a witch!
My brush bewitches those with a wondering eye
as I eclipse them in a painting of joy and beauty.

I am a witch!
My song lifts people up, with such a joyful expression!
Yet at the same time, can cause them great sadness.

I am a witch,
though not in the way you may think.
For art, is my magic.
Are you ready to be amazed?

Surreal Dreams

When the road is a gypsies ribbon and the trees dance with the wind
The nights hours fade to memorie. Embracing the Carnal sins.

Two succubus hands provoke my senses. For wine has their control.
I deny their actions and offenseses. Cleansing my harden soul.

To my eyes they appear angelic. Like sapphires amidst moonlight.
I admire them like relics. Only for the night.

I bring them to my house to sleep their demons away.
They want something else. Pulling me astray.

I lay their figures on clouds of white. My bed is large and grand.
Both scratch, claw, and bite. With promises engraved in sand.

Finally ending their sharade. They fall asleep together
Really wanting to get laid. I sustained the tempest weather.

When the rays seep through. Waking weary eyes.
I witness it too! A maroon sunrise.
Breakfast is waiting on the gentile stool.
Kind smells are baiting for their appitiets are cruel.

After eating they slip away to their home of family hood.
Fully contemplating the way I fully understood.

Later amongst our peers and friends. The ladies convey my trust.
Drawing near favorites and kin. For a savage lust.

A Grim Abscond

Walking on air. Thirsting for sorrowing despair is the only way I know how to keep you near. My spirit lingers for a moment, searching the softly dead silence for the words to say... forever the words are left unspoken. How can you speak when there is nothing but hungering darkness filling the eeiry quiet? My thoughts are left open in the night beauty filled with a gentle light. You see me; your gown is delicate, innocent and white. I look down at my own garments, clothed in black, I am a rainbow of darkness, mastered only by the forsaken raven... longing to thrive in the precious color of snow. A red rose drips with horrid blood, Why must I leave you now? Why must I go? You slowly reach for my hand, but you just don't understand, my heart is breaking. I don't want to bid thee farewell, but to live in such a dastardly sorrowful place would be like living somewhere else. My heart longs to be with you, and I know that in my dreams you will softly whisper "I love you" in my ear. Little do I know that one day soon it won't be in just a dream, because surely I will be with you here, So beautiful sweetheart of mine, do not dread, do not cry, For it is the words you have stolen from thy mouth "I love you", 'tis the only way I will forever depart. These words quietly unspoken still linger, silently in thy mouth evermore in thy heart... At thou grim abscond shall we forever part. Your frozen hand gingerly touches my cheek, wiping me free of all my tears. Surely, tenderly, I will soon be with thee here, until then, darling I love you. Let us forever dance in the dawn of the light, as my black garments miraculously transform, and turn into pure white. Sweetheart I am with thee here, in the night beauty filled with the glorious light. You have saved me from thy distress, thy sorrowing despair. Forever I will rest with thee, in thy heavens of everlasting light... close to you dear. "I love you" once again repeats its story as we forever slowly rejoice, dancing in victory. The two roses; black and white, silently stop crying, transforming in the light. They find refuge in each other, and live in the peace of hope, love, and looming, spectacular, innocent light. A grim abscond I once sang, as the roses drip in horrid blood, thus they prophecy destined them to be so much more, and now they stand against the beauty of the wind, forever bound together with thy treasured love.

THIS GARDEN OF FLOWERS

This garden of flowers

Can be yours too

Follow me

What you can see

What can be

 

This garden of flowers

I found in you

Deep in your heart

Flowers of blue

Pink too

 

Such beauty inside

Wanting to be free

Your colour

What it means to me

What it cannot hide

 

This richness I see

Flowers blossoming

What it means to me

My heart feeling

The colours cascading

 

This garden of flowers

I found in you

So precious too

The colours revealed inside

The heart sighed

 

This garden of flowers

You cannot hide

What you have inside

Colours to touch

Colours to feel

Colours that make it real

 

For, the heart

Holds the delicate blooms

The colour booms

What I can see too,

in the garden of you

TO HEAL A HEART

my heart has been hard
seems it get retard
halted to it's beat
no one again has made it twice beat

TRY melting it down
soften thy bounds
will someone take the chance
and don't be just a fan

it have been wounded
i dare you, be close
frightened and haunted
bold enough to expose

touch it; heal it dearly
quench it unceasingly
dissolving all hurts wholeheartedly
promise, i'll love you selflessly...

Oil pastels

Greasy film,
touch like silk,
glides across my sketch pad,
before it's time to have a nap,
bright, bright pastels,
etched across my nostrils,
in such fluorescent colours,
I can do no other,
oil pastels,
comes perfectly natural,
to someones naked eye,
it's time to sketch and say goodbye.

Blinded on My Wedding Day

Convince that you are the one for me.

Persuaded that I am the one you need.

Deceived that you desire my love.

Refused to see the truth so I wait.

Believing that your heart is not filled with hate.

I cry for my Heart that I am not confused.

Praying to God that I am not just being used.

Blinded by the, Yes I will marry you!

Consumed by the, Will you marry me?

Walking down the aisle to meet my groom, didn't realize it was the day of my doom! 

Oh! What can I say. Blinded on My wedding Day.

Losing Man's Blues

Like a leaf blowing in the wind, 
been up and down this dusty trail 
here to there, back here again, 
my reckless laid plans on the rail. 

I used to act like a crown jewel, 
not knowing this was high stakes poker,
but life’s cruel, caught being a fool,
my deck stacked full of jokers. 

Head still sizzling from the trial, 
was the fault yours, maybe mine, 
I was the one who got nailed,
doing time in cell number 9. 

My heart can’t accept the truth,
my life, a living sacrifice,
with nothing left to lose,
except for these losing man’s blues…

When I get out of this jail, 
I will stay on the right side of the line, 
walk the straight and narrow,
buff up these ‘ol’ shoes ‘til’ they shine.

Stop my rambling, gambling ways, 
get a good hearted woman, sette down, 
hunt me up a little cabin, 
in some forgotten lonesome town.. 

Once I untie these chains that bind;
been tried and found wanting
by the courtroom of life,
this past won’t stop its haunting,
my mind at the end of the line.

My heart can’t accept the truth,
my life, a living sacrifice,
with nothing left to lose,
excepting these losing man’s blues…

Accepting these lonesome blues

Mary's Poem

                I saw you by the pool today              
                you said you had cancer
                that it was taking your life
                away.
                I didn't know what to say
                I was totally shocked,
                I was totally blown away.

                When you left to go inside,
                I hung my head I began to cry.   
                My heart was breaking
                I felt awful inside cause,
                I had been tripping
                over my pride.

                I was so stupid,
                to blind to see
                what a friend
                you were to me.

                Mary, I wrote you this poem
                to tell you that you will be
                missed dearly and,in my 
                heart and, in my prayers
                is where I'll remember and, 
                keep you through the years.
 
                God's plans are bigger then 
                us as we all know but, that
                still doesn't make it any easier
                to go.
                      
                Mary, you know that you won't
                be alone, for your love Carlos                 
                will be right by your side holding
                your hand, as you both walk
                together into God's promiseland
                Heaven. Thank you Mary, for being
                my friend.

A Mariner

A mariner leaves for months at a time
With a wind in his sails and a goal in mind

He doesn’t know what lies ahead
And he eats lots of fruit with dry wheat bread

The adventure calls and ignites his soul
But Mother Nature bawls and takes her toll

Hurricanes and wind tear at his nerves
After he makes it he finally learns
The lesson taught by life itself
Your stories not finished till it’s on the shelf

stille

Sorted memories of Augsburg 
abyss the tranquil lessons above 
empty channels of you and I 
why I've catered to the flicker 
of light coming from the corridor 
down the hall where the teakwood 
table stood holding up the marble vase 
that shattered everytime the door opened 
my heart was flushed with a masculine
tale of dungeons and dragons at the behest 
of feeling hope an yet you entered again 
that quiet place that calmness against 
all odds thee uncharted place beneath 
the spoon of a Bishop's wife where 
I'd bestowed a certain chastity wildly 
explored throughout wisdom's sphere 
in sheer doubt of waking to find 
that you were still here

Masterpiece

It was I who was once a block of stone 
The finest of marble i was told. 
His gaze would last for hours 
As i waited to be created. 

Then came the day when he started chipping away 
Only he knew what i was to become  
I was his unfinished creation 
As yet known to none. 

Many days passed  
My soul already there 
He gave me a body 
My full form soon to appear. 

I stole a glance of myself in a mirror 
My face gently touched by moonlight  
I looked soft yet gallant 
An interpretation of perfection. 

There i was complete 
Soon to be put to the world 
A marvel made for display 
For all to see.  

He stood gazing at me 
I could tell he was pleased 
My creator,a genius 
Another mark on history. 

Crowds stood in awe 
At my magnificent reveal 
I was named David 
My destiny then sealed.

MY LUCIFER

From the tongues offire
To a blooded desire
From a gentle kiss
To demon I pleased.
 
 
You promised a heaven
But I’m battered maiden
Living in this dark hell
Prison inside your cell.
 
 
Remembering beginnings
Laughed at simple things
You lost your silver wings
Committed unforgivable sins.
 
I sacrificed my freedom
Not for this dreadful doom
Son of the morning
Fall in land while lightning.
 
You’re one in jinn
Goods can’t be seen
Still an angel but Lucifer
The bad spirits’ bearer.

HE and his ART

Many hearts, each a beat
HE and his Art
=====
Sympathy struck my soul within the Watts Towers
One man, broken, lost
Gave other broken pieces of life another chance to shine
With beauty and grace
Close to his heart
Close to god

Before his hand came down
They were just figures fallen
Pieces hitting
Rock pavement bottom

These objects, that once served propose
Once had value
No longer desired

Used and abused
Broken souls
Left to corrode

Do you know what it feels like to be alone in fear
In shame with no hope
Can’t look in the mirror

Thought to no longer have purpose,
On this earth
To no longer have beauty
To no longer, have worth

Rebirth

Sees art on the ground
His Hand comes down
A man, once broken and scared
A suffering alcoholic with a second chance at life
His heart and soul he bares 

Perhaps it was sympathy,
He felt that day
When he started to create, a place of hope
The skills to cope 
For the pieces left to waste away

Each broken object, each piece of junk
He gave a gift of serenity
To shine and glimmer
To live beautifully,
In company 
Sublime and serene
Achieved

Surrounded by like others,
Once pieces left behind 
Alone, you seek cover
Together, in time

Is strength, and beauty
A vision of unity
A collective propose
Of vision and purity

What new perspective, from the inside to out 
Changes on the faces of the people about 
Seeing the junk, as a ship not sunk

In the shape of hope
And inspiration, a dream
Where we can go and where we have been

Reflect on this now
Of those who never saw
What the man’s vision was
Love, real and raw
In those broken pieces

With his signature, his heart
Left in different formations
Bottle and plates
Imagination
=====
Many hearts, each a beat
HE and his Art

I love you

I love you
And I hope you love me two
You brighten up my days
Like the sun's shiny rays

You have my heart in your hand
Because it's at your command
And I hope that this time it doesn't break
Because I don't want another heart ache

Please just be here now
And please allow
Your heart to feel the same way
And trust me because it will all be okay

Lift up our hands towards Your light.
Jesus friend of sinners,
Open our eyes to the world at the end of our pointing fingers.
May we shine to that city on the hill,
Your already there waiting with our hearts for you to fill.
May we hear the toll of the ringing bell,
Make our hearts thirsty to come to the well.

May the glory of Your name be the passion of the church,
Let the righteousness of God be a Holy flame that burns.
We believe Your all to us.
To You the nations bow down,
To You creation cries out.
All things we hold together,
Your name will stand forever.
Majesty! You are Majesty!
For You and You alone awake our soul awake our soul and see,
For the world You love Your will be done let Your will be done in us.

Love Ballad

 A gentle knight chirped and roaming the way of desert at night.
 His dancy browny hair, blue eyes made romantic guy and couraged.
 He lured by lovely song beyond a hill.
 Eagerly, he rushed his horse and fell swooned.

 He lightly opened his eyes but did not movable, groaning pains.
 His wounds tide with herb and bluey fungus.
 A spinster, an oldman lived in this hut sitting anxious looking.
 The nature of love girl sing a praying song under a coniferous.

 He falls asleep and his wounds healing miracle by love.
 He said many gratitude thanks and parting smiles.
 The spinster missed her heart and possess a minute death.
 She weaving her heart gifted garland to him with splendid love-smells.

 The nightjar song impressed his love seek, find to fail.
 The red war period started, as his melancholy love.
 He stabed not but earning many love wounds.
 His inner voice of love but fluttering dove!

 He became love-sicker and also think about the bewitching voice.
 Again he searched, his red wounds badly hurt.
 His instinct wishes that met her love-face lastly.
 He brings only thorny's love-blood at shadow night.

 Dews fluttering with his worthy red-blood gently to the heaven.
 He is rescued by the same spinster his heart-venus.
 She takes a letter and his pleasant love-subject written with golden tunes.
 Her tears of love tinkling on, the love-wounds bleeding with joyous!

 She feeds him on the love's last breath of lyric but sad love-melody chill.
 The worthy fairest carved immortalized their love-chapter.
 If you smelled the monumental garland it described the unbelievable love-tale.
 The love-origin pastoral surrounded with red grasses one touch it
    amazingly love-sicker!

Pharaoh's March

He walks to the rhythm of african drum beats, 
the heart of a lion fractions of a coward
emotions heighten he becomes pensive questioning the belief of his GOD 
is this really for me?
weathering through space and time his eyes are pinnacles to another realm of bliss. 
onlookers seeking freedom
children of the most high seeking revolution
he quotes scriptures of his past time
words of theory from points he's gathered in his journey
i ask who is this man?
flesh silent 
spirit speaking 
he answered before his lips every murmured hello
i am he.
pharaoh, moses, ham, ra, amun, zeus, shango..
the knight of charisma
epitome of knowledge
the bearer of life 
i am
not in for your keeping
 whisper of the future the taste of your dream
standing in the field of jasmine encircled with lavender hues. 
he breathes
intricate details to my entity
 encompassing the totality of my sense of feminity
he created my transparency
i was only bare with he.
no mask no shell no fear he created a path of openess
i was glued 
stories of unwritten moments, memories my dreams lived
he was the reflection of who i thought to be, forgetting in my trip through my heaven
he had yet to discover his kingdom,
but i had claimed my reign to his side as queen. 
to the spirit of my ancestors
to the ears of my creator he was defined as my king
the one my heart forever locked to 
 he was my reflection, the soul my spirit searched for through lifetimes.
he is
i stay locked to his mission even in his absence, because the thought of another permeates 
hesitation the brink of a failed submission of invalid truths of my heart because
i could never be dedicated with the key to me being in his hands. 
i decline another hand to touch this skin and breathe upon this flesh,
i have been touched by royalty please don't dishonor my king. 
he 
is 
my 
destiny in the eyes of me

Give Me Concern for the Lost - Prayer

Fill me anew with your Spirit;
Give me concern for the lost.
Anoint me for your service;
Use me in your harvest.
I commit my life to your leading—
May my heart be filled with your love;
Full of concern for the dying,
Who have a home prepared above.

Give me opportunities to witness;
To tell of your mercy and joy;
Your precious Holy Spirit—
You left this earth to deploy.
Place in me a fire—
That burns deep within.
May this passion be contagious,
So that others too will begin.

Use me to bless the hurting;
Pray for all their needs,
So they can see your handiwork,
And miracles for others to concede.
May joy and peace be with me;
May your love be highly sought—
Not for selfish reasons,
But for others lives you have bought.

May my concern for the lost—
Compel me into action.
I trust you, Lord, to enable me;
In everything, I seek confirmation.
Place a double portion of your Spirit—
Upon my life today.
May all the lost be drawn to you,
And may “I” not get in the way. 
A-men.

My Precious Sister 1992 - 1994

The year was 1994 and it is now 2005
Time has passed and continues to pass!
I can still see her lying in the hospital
I can still see her sweet face
Even though it was drained from the pain
And of course the tears she cried!
I can still see the drips through her nose
I can still see the anguish in her eyes
I can still see the beating of her heart as it races with sadness and regret!
I can still hear the doctors talking though I don’t know what they are saying
Talk, Talk, Talk that’s all I hear
Yes, my precious sister is still fresh in my mind.

Jade, precious is what you are
You are never far away from my heart
I keep you close, ever so close
You are my precious sister and I love you!

My eyes are filled with green, showing my envy
My heart is filled with black, showing my lament
Why lament? 
A state, which we should envy?
Yes because precious you were and precious you are
My precious sister!

In my heart and mind you are
Day in and day out!
I long to talk to you and
Tell you that I love you and
Tell you that you are my precious sister
Jade!

once upon a time

  


I looked into her eyes
  In my heart she is alive
For we belong
  standing strong
Running free
  Always to be
We are legend never to die
  Listen to my midnight cry
We belonged together
  Always and forever
She lived in me heart and soul
  Passion never ran cold
We were spirit
  Loving every minute of it
Days and nights we spend
  Why did it have to end

A Titanic Episode

So the ship will sail
For those who have the price to pay
And I have a tale
To leave here if I pass away
This journal will speak
To the journey I now shall take
From life here so bleak
To sunrise future that shall break
               ***
Come back with me to the cinders flying
To Kelly's coal yard and my story
My skin made black and my age is hoary
Time is hard and, no bit worth living

And over there not far away building
A ship of dream unsinkable real
And in my heart dreaming a fervent zeal
To be aboard with the sailing

I am a coal man, that is who I am
I know the heat, and I fan the flame
So I'm hired for furnace to move the frame
Across the deep cold Atlantic dam

I have no kith to love me,  kinfolks gone
To America for a promised land
It does not matter then my blistered hand
I seek too another better dawn

What was it, I did not know, yet awake
Her sunlight hit the deck, made it glow
And my heart was warmed on the lake like snow
The first day aboard, my sugar cake.

And all I had to do was rescue her sack
From wayward trampling feet, then aboard
I brought it, gallantly and without sword
I cut the prejudice swiftly back

Kindness is the key that opens love door
And that was all my life did own
I went down, and she a next stair shown
The rich is well closed off from the poor

Would she forget what I remembered still
Her soft sweet skin, her sun shining smile
My heart young again, pining all the while
To know if her pearly ever will

We soot black ones never got a permit
To see from atop the eager sea
But she touring her palace came down to me
Found my furnace, and sweating did sit.

She preferred the flame to the faceless sea
The flickering fires, the frantic eyes
The tiger tenaciously stalked the prize
Of rippling muscles soft humility.

And so like birds we scraps of dreams sharing
From day to day discover afresh
The human worth in our human flesh
The long and sultry sweet of longing

My heart cast off from life boat and reason
Blackened her with accidental touch
And she overcame, into me rushed
The first kiss has so short a season.

Five days is a long time for love to grow
An eternity for a kiss
What did I know of icebergs and cold mist
What could my furnace not melt below

And yet this clamouur, and frights wild uproar
And all the pushy orders given
I got her a lifeboat, a boat's heaven
And wept that she was gone evermore

But she looking back, saw me there weeping
And jumped to swim back that dismal sea
Hence Diary my last entry to thee
For I must jump in, farewell, I'm going.

Still

So frustrated
Bitter and hurt 
Searching for answers
The key to make it work
With every little beat
My heart breaks even more
With every uncertain breath
I grow even more unsure
You loved me once
I'd swear it was so
Your love for me now gone
Lost somewhere along the road
Can we find our way back
Has the feeling gone for good
Dont' you know I'd change things
If only I thought I could
You're so very distant
Almost never, do we touch
You know, I can't remember ever
Wanting anyone quite so much
Can we turn back time
Rewind the clock, so to speak
Bring back all those feelings
You once felt for me
My soul, so very shattered
Battered, beaten and worn
A bruised and broken heart
Dying, lying, scattered and torn
Aching to the core
Yearning to the bone
Shamelessly mourning
The loss of what once was known
Why is our laughter
Replaced by bitter tears
This love, once so amazing
Then brought down with hidden fears
Forever hoping with the dawn
Your heart will, again, be mine
Praying to wake from this nightmare
To find our 'once upon a time'
Do you feel the pain
As it echoes off these walls
Do you ache with longing
Or feel nothing for me at all
Is this just my imagination
Conjuring fears that need not be,
Is it just too much to hope for
That you still be in love with me
No answers to these questions 
So unsure of how you feel
Yet with all these uncertainies
I'm certain I love you still

The Four Suitors

The first was handsome and direct,
and try he did to please--
with bright bouquets of fragrant gems,
in hopes my heart to seize.

I gathered from his grand approach
that beauty was his charm,
to bloom a bond through gorgeous gifts;
in that, I found no harm.

Alas, his blossoms were corrupt;
my love he never took!
What mattered most to him was how
my presence made him look.

I promptly left his vanity
to seek a love refined,
and highly hoped the next to claim
my hand would better shine.

The second suitor came to me
and promised me his heart,
and with that gesture he assured
that we would never part.

His heart enkindled love in me
and fervent was that fire.
He showered me with earnest heat,
for that was my desire.

Alas, his love grew sweltering;
too much was his embrace!
His rays were most enjoyable,
but left me little space.

I fled from his tenacity
to seek a milder mate,
though quickly did the next arrive
and fall for my estate!

The third was gracious and composed,
so like the first, I thought.
I wondered what concerned him: did
he seek the love I sought?

He greeted me and then revealed
with haste a hazel dress.
I donned the warmly colored gown;
his love he then confessed.

Alas, three months is all it took
for me to hate his leaves!--
those times he swayed into the dusk
to secret love receive.

One night, he stripped me of my gown;
our love diffusely fell.
He left me bare with but despair
to chill my hollow shell.

There came another, clothed in white,
while I was still remote.
He asked if he could comfort me,
then cloaked me with his coat.

Though beautiful, it gave no warmth,
for he himself was cold.
I wondered if he once endured
a love's uncertain hold.

I tightly held his frigid form
and spoke with words sincere:
Our love will one day find a match;
for now, please persevere.

I gently shed his frosty coat
from my rekindled core,
then boldly sauntered towards the first
with hopeful buds restored.

Roses----the odour of love.

Bravely young lieutenant standing in the battle field hurtlessly.
He captured their enemies very lightly.
His stylist, romantic war, the shield dazzled to see.
He is fond of war and kissing delightly !!

His shiny hair leap and mould prince of wars luminous.
Once he passed, seeing the valley of roses.
 He ponder slightly odourless flowers of roses.
Amazingly, he allured aura inside the valley of roses.

He dreamt that he is in the world of roses.
His heart fluttering and his eyes filled with roses.
The sudden fragrance pouring with gems festival rollick.
But the veiling  Rose  disappered with ivory smiles.

His shying dawn bring coloring lunar reflect his love.
Rosy thorns narrating the gregarious story of loveth.
His rose-world sprouted rootlessly and moths kissing rosy-cheeks.
He seek flower's bazaars also rose wreath.

He sculptured the statue of rose express his love.
Her eyelids feared, roses winging for flowery love.
His rose-blood beloved rose-girl and forgets the bloody war.
He feels like nestling, rose nest covered by love.

The beautiful love period perfumed, the white roses flare as of love-lyre.
He lisped love-language to the fairy rosing.
His enemies pursued and watching his actions  in hidden.
In a night of rain  he sung songs of love, roses floating !

His enemies played their sword at his rose-fairy.
At most joy, her heart fell, gushing rose-petal.
Rose petals mixed his blood and irrigated the valley or rose.
One who see this valley, roses sprout the odour of love natural  !!

Worth Fighting For

Walk of fame,
Walk of shame.
But what is it really worth?
If we win,
We only live to fight again.
If we lose,
Then it was worth fighting for.

Road to somewhere,
Road to nowhere.
But what is it really worth?
If we win,
We only live to fight again.
If we lose,
Then it was worth fighting for.

Sea to shining sea,
Tree to rotting tree.
But what is it really worth?
If we win, 
We only live to fight again.
If we lose,
Then it was worth fighting for.

Open My Eyes

Open my eyes,
Let faith arise.
Believing there's hope,
When the pain is to strong I can't cope.
Your love is deeper than the sea,
It comforts my heart and frees me.
Your mercy is unfailing, Your glorious most high,
Keep me strong looking up to the sky.
I know that this isn't easy,
Its getting harder and harder to see,
That something good will come upon me.
In the Heavens You reign,
I lift my hands to believe again.
I reach to You at arms length,
You are my refuge You are my strength.
Your mercy burns like ember,
As I pour out my heart these things I remember.
You are faithful God forever.
So let my faith arise,
Open my eyes.

He Hides in the Night

It's claw flash within the night.
We could hear her scream in vain,
'Tis the time to stand up and fight.
We all feel her pain...

The church bells ring,
Here we hide in fear,
We're trapped by this thing,
Da wolf may be near...

Run, run and hide!
There's no way to escape,
Before we have tried,
Maybe this is our fate.

The church bells ring,
Here we hide in fear,
We're trapped by this thing,
Da wolf may be near...

The ground is painted red.
The moon has urged him on,
But don't be afraid to rest your head,
For we will survive 'till dawn.

The church bells ring,
Here we hide in fear,
We're trapped by this thing,
Da wolf may be near.

The beast within will roar to life.
Don't be afraid to fight!
Stab thy in heart with thy silver knife.
Stand united till the dawn's purple light.

The church bells ring,
Here we hide in fear,
We're trapped by this thing,
Da wolf may be near...

The night is done,
The beast's heart be still.
We mourn over the souls that will never again see the sun,
And we have finally paid our bill.

Lonely Heart

As I sat here, I often think of you.
I think of you in my arms as we listening to the rain fall.
I think of you when I think of warmth.
I think of you whenever I need to smile.
I find myself often thinking of you.
I think of you when I take my first bite.
That it could be you I'm feeding it to.
I think of you when I take each step.
That it may be one last step it takes to get to you.
I think of you as the sun rises in the morning.
That like a bloom on a dew morning, you have
brighten my day before my eyes even open.
I think of you while I'm lying here.
How wonderful it would be, if you was here with me.
I think of you as my heart feels loneliness.
But it is there I am fulfilled.
As my loneliness is far too real.
For it's there my heart cry's loud.
For a lonely heart to find its fire.
For there a thought of you is.
As mine is a burning of desire.
For you have filled a lonely hearts desire.

This Mold of Me

My skin is tough, like hard plastic. 
But my heart is made of mush! 
These cuts provide a purpose in the 
shapeing of the soul, and these 
scars they tell a story of the many 
past lost goals. We build ourselves 
from circumstance and learn what 
we can take... and when it is life 
seems to much we are destined all 
to break. I see the world from lava 
stone with everything upturned,  
when peoples words and actions set 
a fire to help me burn. This world is 
dark and sometimes fueled by this 
pain that seaps from my bones, and 
its times like this i would not miss 
this world i've come to know. My 
tears they spill out weakness for all 
who care to see, but they do not 
know the strength i hold or the 
current battle fought within me. Its 
constance overwhelms me and it 
strips me to the core, until there is 
nothing left except an empty vessel 
that hoards lost words. I cannot 
make them see whats real and how 
every day is a victory. If only i can 
make it from rise to set. I need a 
constant feed of courage, love, and 
hope. For others faith it seems to 
help me cope. There is none left in 
this old cell that harbours a heart 
and soul, and without them i would 
merely be mush and plastic 
formed into a mold.

I'm The Forgotten

This is where I thought you would be
This is where I knew I was wrong
My heart could not bear the pain
When I knew I was just a shadow all along

You held secrets I thought I could know
You gave me trust I thought I had
Now, my heart burns with so much sorrow
Could anything get worse than that?

I am the forgotten in your world
I was waiting for someone to let me rise
I am nothing but the air around you
I am broken and my visions became blind

I am lost in between
The forgotten world I have been
This heart that is breaking
It won't stop till I become unseen

Because I am the forgotten

Passenger

Ever get that sinking felling?
The one you can't escape?
I'm walking down a lonely road.
A passenger of fate.

Every day is torcher.
A self-sustaining hell.
Every moment's a blind approach.
There's no one I can tell.

But my conscious still retains,
Thing's could be much worse.
Indecisive actions, perhaps...
Or lying in a hearse.

Still, my heart is yearning.
For whatever could have been.
I feel the dagger burrow in.
I'm bleeding with this pen.

I've said all I can say,
Now I'll just be on my way,
Down that lonely road again,
I'll walk forever, with no end.

by Dylan

When the Sun and the Seaside Kissed

When the Sun and the Seaside Kissed
     By Dane Smith-Johnsen

Oh, how lovely the view that summer’s eve.
When the sun and the seaside kissed.
There stood on the shore a soul bereaved.
For the heart had known not life’s bliss.
By the wind’s gentle breeze silhouette beheld.
And caressed a soul’s tearful mist.
Heavenly smile, a little bit wild,
Somehow strangely beckoned, hissed. 
The heart strongly longed for the splendor awhile.
Invitation did not resist.

This day that I speak of was long ago.
Pain embraced a sweet soul in the midst.
We both know; spirits soared that night.  
Hope’s summons had not been missed. 
Witnessed by God, the angels sang.
Then, they wrote our names on a list. 
That day, death’s call was washed away.
And love for an eternity clasped.
Invocation!  Death could not enlist.
Standing there crying in the mist,

The wind blowing ever so free,
Salty air was my only kiss.
How deadly my view that summer’s eve.
For this heart had known not life’s bliss.
God sent you to rescue me.
And enlightened my soul’s tearful kiss.
We stood relieved and sang on the shore.
When the sun and the seaside kissed.

IMPARISHABLE TREASURE

Treasure like the moon, so close i can see it, yet so far from my reach.

Treasures like you, always there close for reach maybe too close for my notice.

What treasures i have found, such treasures i will selfishly keep.

For i bared the lands of men, scraping for that one particular treasure,

that all life is worth & without it, purpose in life we cannot fathom.

Beautiful treasures truely i found yonder, of exquisite workmanship.

All finely cut from various pracious stones of vibrant hues.

Through time the treasures proved perishable and worthless,

they left me holding the wind in my bosom, as afore i had got them.

All despair and pain praising all life worthless.

All out and afar to yonder space, i gave chase to the winds

'till i was winded and outdone & in my firm grasp i unfurl the wind and

my gaze (bour) upon it, as pracious time wasted.

Then i met you, treasure like the moon, your voice called & i answered,

and right there i beheld your presence.

Your voice unfurling treasure, your eyes exuding love.

Then i caught hold of a nugget and now the winds i've chased made sense, i've longed & found

a nugget that fits me well................

BELLICOSE

----------------------------------BELLICOSE -----------------------
BELLICOSE IS A WAR BETWEEN MY HEART AND MYSELF DEPICTING THE CONNECTION IT HAS WITH BODY AND CORE.
Are you jealous of my hand?
I asked my heart.
It’s brought in this world,
the children of your emotions.
Can you see the very paths between these fingers?
These are the many you've travelled through to thump hard. 

Are you jealous of my mind?
I ask my heart.
Like an enemy he keeps you close,
and leaves me vacant.
Many a times when I have found him stirring,
You have let me rest on your shoulder to hear him out.

Are you jealous of my feet?
I ask my heart.
They have forever walked in places to which you would go.
They have wished upon wishes to stop and heal,
But you never turned them back or let them kneel.

Are you jealous of my ears?
I ask my heart.
No, you hear your song singing through them,
like a croon that bleeds through me and walks on earth.

The Healers Heart / 2001

The healer strove to mark the place
to walk with heart in hand. 
She placed her foot upon the path
and walked ‘pon ochre sand.

Her head was high, her gaze direct
the path before her steep;
to her goal with chattering teeth
the healer’s eyes did keep.

She went within the darkness deep,
earth's core she did explore;
with heart hearth lit and good intent
she visited earth's core.

The Mother had oft seen her there
and gifted her each day,
with lava, light, and wet warmth
the Mother watched her play.

Still, now the healer knew the truth,
a truth she must absorb.
Father lived in hearths held on high,
He was another force.

And, if the healer was to grow
help others come this way
she must go forth, rise, absorb
the upper light displayed.

With trembling lips and fearful sighs
on she purposefully strode, 
this child of clay, of lava formed,
to Father’s bright abode.

And, as she rose above the clouds
into the firmament
she lost her shape, as child of earth
gained oneness in ascent.

No boundaries now held her form
except His loving grace,
this cherished child of mud, of clay;
she took her solemn place.

“Light or Dark, neither good nor bad,”
a choice the Father said.
a place for all, a purpose too
and lessons learned instead.

So, the healer turned to earth
upon that golden day. 
She’d learned the joy of dark and light
found wholeness, in this way.

Wayfaring Heart

Wayfaring heart please let me be
Wanderlust inside of me
Dreams of days upon the sea
Wayfaring heart please let me be
Longing to go back to Kingston once more
Walk along the sun drenched shore
Watch the horizon at the break of dawn
Spend a few days in Old San Juan
Wayfaring heart I still miss those days
When time stood still for my wandering ways
Bodies swaying while the music plays
Wayfaring heart I still miss those days
Tropical island and beach with white sands
Paradise within the reach of my hands
Coke and rum on the warm summer nights
Island glowing from stars and harbor lights
Wayfaring heart please don’t let me cry
Warm Caribbean is where my memories lie
Tears in her eyes when I told her good bye
Wayfaring heart please don’t let me cry
Someday all of my bridges I’ll burn
To that tropical paradise I will return
From her loving arms I will no longer roam
Wayfaring heart we will finally be home.

AS INHUMAN AS A MAN'S HEART SEEMS

As inhuman as a man's heart seems...
hidden inside is a tender side:
a beautiful side seldom seen by others;
and that fear of being sensitive
is a real hurdle for those men sworn in pride,
but manly qualities are judged by his deeds...
 
A woman's perception of the common man is that
he is lives in an unintentional masquerede,
to hide the sweetness he won't manifest;
and this unconformity won't let his beauty 
 be capturated by intense emotions of masculinity...
will he break the myth and be appreciated?

I have struggled with it indefinitely
and embraced this stereotype unsympathetically,
why are we supposed to be so uncaring and invulnerable,
and outgrow our own resistance and be so invincible;
have we realized that disharmony,
indignation and frustration are not truly noble?

As inhuman as a man's heart seems,
many sacrifice love for an unexplanable cause...
putting vanity before human compassion:
without guilt, regard and trepidation;
have we become so stubbornly persistent...
to lose all self-direction and prospective?

Dauphin Island Bridge

four sweet smiling babies on the front page of the paper
four sweet little lives that are no more
My throat is tight My hands are clenched My heart is broken
My eyes flood as my knees hit the floor
How in the hell could there even be an explanation
Could the white dope really bring a man so low
the pretty lady on the TV says it's a complicated situation
and a bunch of other crap that I don't want to know
Held in the arms they loved and trusted
Thrown some eighty feet into the bay
I'm bitter disillusioned and disgusted
and I'm not the only one who feels that way

My God it's so damn hard to keep believing
Is this the way you really meant for it to be
It's getting dark - a half an hour past grieving
Lets have a heart to heart just you and me
I've found this big black book of contradictions
Though I like what the red letters have to say
I hope I have the strength of my convictions
but what the hell is free will anyway

It's easy now to believe in the devil
It's good to have some where to put the blame
but I can't keep from thinking we're the trouble
If we don't own up, How can we ever change
I want to know if you're tight with the preacher
Who tells us about peace and love and hell
Have you got some connection with the teacher
who teaches us just how to hate and kill

This here geopolitical situation
is a little more than greedy cold and hard
What's all this talk about hell and damnation
There's plenty of that right here in my back yard
where four sweet smiling babies are on the front page of the paper
three so far have washed up on the shore
I guess there must be hell fire and damnation
Cause there just has to be a heaven for those four 
 
 
Author's Comments : 
This is for those babies, and God.

drifting

if i could spend a few minutes away from me
not just to assume some other idenity.
but to know what it's like to just  be free
,from the everyday stress and anxiety
to just drift peacefully thru the air ,
 with no pains no  worries or no cares.
only then can i see these joys i got , 
and i'll no longer pretend to be something i'm not 
     for
i cannot deceive the world for others wealth,
i can only stand in the shadows of myself
 and hold on to the justice that telltales in my soul
, that rushes into the eyes that betray us as a whole 
my character is the diamond that scratches every other stone, 
for character is the power that right the world from wrong......

DRUMS OF JOY

  Here are the drums of joy beating to tingle my breasts,
  To enliven the downtrodden spirit in me these drums....moves feets,
  It rhythmic outpour seeps through my nipples alleviating the sorrow in me,
  What a form of 'Art' that has placated my troubled mind.
 
  See my waist my love,can you hold it from swaying to this lifechanging
  vibrations,
  It does no harm dancing more ferrociously to this graceful sounds,
  My heart is at peace,
  Fat is my soul that was amiss,
  Confident now am I as Mozart would find his fingers on the piano,
  All thanks to this DRUMS OF JOY.

JULIANA, FAERIE PRINCESS

I gazed upon the trees 
The beautiful trees 
A bramble rose in full bloom 
Framed in a castle window, 
a soft breeze 

Juliana 
Faerie Princess 
Soft light fell 
Upon your wings 
I am under your spell 

Soft light fell 
On a day... 
When only a Prince, 
can take you away 

Juliana 
Faerie Princess 
Soft light fell 
Upon your wings 
I am under your spell 

Oh Juliana! 
You cannot believe, 
unless you feel 
Deep in your heart 
The soft kiss of love 

Juliana 
Faerie Princess 
Soft light fell 
Upon your wings 
I am under your spell 

You returned to a castle 
Bathed in light 
Faeries and butterflies 
On a day,so bright 

Juliana 
Faerie Princess 
Soft light fell 
Upon your wings 
I am under your spell 

In a walled garden, 
of bramble rose and foxglove 
You cannot believe 
Unless you feel 
Deep in your heart 
The soft embrace of love 

Juliana 
Faerie princess 
Soft light fell 
Upon your wings 
I am under your spell 

Oh Juliana! 
Faerie Princess 
Soft light fell 
Upon your wings 
You captured everything, 
under your spell

marietta's eye's

i'd awakened to the
sound of the broken
flapping screen door 
as the snow man nose 

vanished within the rushing 
wind that blew empty cartons 
torn ribbons and tattered bows 
while Christmas lights grew dim 

rusty chimes whispered behind 
the wooden shacks and old 
shanty homes as winter rose 
over the good tidings and festive
 
gatherings meeting me 
at the street light with no mittens 
I"d ask for a bit of sun 
a warm breeze above winters crisp 

bitterness charmed I suppose 
slipping my hands into my pockets
quietly i'd utter ah it's springtime again

POETRY

Inspired by nature, divine art
Light feathered, no care who listens
Pleasant sight, in chorus they whistle
Early by my window they visit
With voice so tender, inspires me

No words but tune so polished
With inspiration I keep off guitar
Calm on stage I speak my heart
Simple rhythm for words to flow
With voice so tender, say it more

I could rock, pop and boogie
But need to send the message across
Lest you query the loud piano
Word by word I speak for my people
With voice so real, they too said it

Its beautiful, like evening ocean water
Calm that the heavens too borrow share
Words sweetly rhymed no sweat to cut
Smile after smile, the crowd gets the message
With voice so clear, it all gets said

Its all in poetry where wonders amuse more
Eagles leave the skies, fishes float on sea
Park goes quiet, no beeps no horns
Like national anthem to a countryman
With voice so sweet, they give ear to

Stare at nature, it writes back the lines
No head scratching, the flow overwhelms
Don’t force it, its natural gift given freely
On stage crowd awaiting the next line
With voice so natural, I give the poem

Mama

When I was born,
I learned how to breathe.
My Mama held me in her arms. 
She said that she would never let me leave.

Several months later,
I learned to take my first steps.
Mama watched close, so I wouldn't trip.
She filled my heart, to the deepest depths.

A couple years later,
I learned to tie my shoes.
Mama taught me how to button my coat.
I had all I could want, nothing to loose.

I grew a little,
Then I rode the bus to school.
Mama followed the bus all the way there.
She missed me; there was no one to fool.

Soon after that,
I left for summer church camp.
Mama made sure I packed my bug spray.
I think her eyes got a little bit damp.

Some more years passed,
Then for the Lord I made a decision.
Mama stood proud with a big grin.
My life had great dreams and visions.

About two years later,
I talked to Mama, told her God's plan.
Mama smiled, sobbed, and cried.
I told her I must follow God's hand.

Still today,
I stand strong and believe.
Mama says I've taught her strength.
And trusting God leaves her heart relieved.

One day soon,
I'll wear a graduation cap.
Mama will congradulate me.
With her gentle hands she will clap.

After that,
One day her hand will let me go.
She'll watch and wait for my return.
But her heart will hold me close though.

Good Morning My Sweet

  I awake to this
  The Sun glowing off your hip
  Radiating my heart, a deep spot

  This is the time
  I can clear my mind
  And fall hard, deep, as you sleep

  I know, I love you
  
  My hand follows your curves
  To a brand new being
  A happy me

  There is nothing on
  But to play this song
  In which I cannot speak

  My heart skips a beat

  There is no way to tell
  How I fell, all over you
  And your smell, it overwhelms

  I know, I love you

  Just know, I am here
  Though you are not aware
  Feeling complete, to you, my sweet

  My heart skips a beat

If looks could kill


If looks could kill
I would have died a thousand times
the way your eyes cut through me
the way things should be
All reminders of why you hate me

My life is lost without your love
No need for the heavens above
your love fit like a glove
keeping me warm when I needed you most
my heart for you i will forever toast

Do you see what I see?
please try and understand me
for you are my hearts only key
Locked my heart will forever be~ 
For you are my one and only wifey~

I am lost in my thoughts of you
rememebring all that we been through
and all the dreams that we both hold true
someday you will know......
I really did love you

Souls Can Stand

Souls Can Stand

A heart that stands-alone knows hurts that troubles brew.
If ever in a bugaboo, in need of loving hands,
Take leave of evil plights; each day begin anew.
On knees, bow down and praise the Lord; with vigor make your stand.

Wait not to seek your God; invite His love within.
When drifting on the wings of hope and trials overwhelm.
Remember, prayers unto the Lord build strength…raze sin.
Abide with His enduring love keep seeking Heaven's realm.

Depend on God to bear hope up and heal zest lost.
Dwell not on dreadful heartaches and mistakes on past paths trod. 
Malevolence can muddle minds when faith is tossed.
Is hatred worth eternity exiled away from God?

Make life sublime, pure hearts; forgive.  Then, kneel, and say. 
“Oh Lord, today, come light my path; absolve this heart and stay.”

Fading Star (Part One)

Sometimes you are stopped in your tracks and you have to stop and stare,
I saw someone so beautiful, but she was just sitting there.
As the world passed her by in all its majestic glory,
I stopped a stranger and asked of him, ‘Do you know of this girl’s story?’

He stopped and looked at me and bowed down his head,
He told me that she was someone once, but many think she’s dead.
It happened a long time ago, her lover did her a wrong,
The tale he can’t remember but the words are in a distant song.

I wanted to know so much more so I waited there that day,
To see if she would turn towards me or just walk the other way.
But she sat with far away eyes on her sad expressionless face,
I looked around for guidance, but we were strangers alone in this place.

But life wasn’t always like this, I found out in a little while,
There was a time when she laughed and her face always carried a smile.
Everywhere she went, people stopped and stared,
So many people loved her, so many people cared.

Climbing up the wall is now the highlight of her day,
Remembering when to go and never out doing her stay.
Eyes completely open, staring blankly at the wall,
Is she waiting for forgiveness or destiny to call?

I decided to take a chance, I moved across the room,
My heart was beating faster, have I moved to her too soon?
I stopped by her table and asked, ‘Is this seat taken?’
Her sad eyes looked up to me, warming if I am not mistaken.

Words were not forthcoming, but I saw a glimpse of a smile,
I sat down slowly, heart beating faster, my senses were on trial.
I went to say a word, but she stopped me with a fleeting glance,
My whole body mesmerised, it was if I was in a trance.

Risk risk for anything. The other opinions act you on the earth yourself
To face the truth. I’ve learned to take time for myself and with a great deal and 
love. And I cause inspect like me. I think learn to laugh at yours triodes and never 
you’ll run out of things to laugh at loses one many laughs by not laughing at you

William

When the love of your life is ripped from your chest
and the hate inside you grows stronger,
when the land you call home is stolen by a king
and your pain will not stand it no longer.
You rise upwards and onwards and fight for your land
for freedom you fight every foe,
the fields run red and ground soaks up tears
and onwards and onwards you go.
The killing of your love, your wife, your soul
was taken, so short you were married,
the brutal attack she had to take then,
but the worst part was when you carried,
her lifeless body up to her grave
the tears were running so fast,
that war was going to be her revenge
and tyranny alas would not last.
These lands were yours Scotland would be free
you fought with all  men and your might
but alas they came, captured  took you away
your death, you  became  a martyr, a knight.
you will always be in our history books
we take all our hats off to you
and we will remember for all time
when William Wallace rode through.

not going to quit until I get the answer 
I want though my question are full the 
answer will answer thing that take me 
to do dumb things.I never listen anymore
to what people have to say I only hear 
thunder when I’m told what to do it thing
that take me to do dumb things. I never 
listen anymore to what people have to 
say I only hear thunder when I’m told 
what to do it. Taking you down and 
anyone else who think they can win.
This battle had started before I was
born I plan to end it before the next 
generation comes.

Love Bird


Love birds

Last valentine I was counting,
tik-tak with heart pounding,
waiting for my belle,
ears vertical to hear that love bell
oh God, that day turned hell

I love, I said I love you
I believe that tomorrow will come
but  doubt whether you'll be gone
It's my hearts prayer, I pray
be mine, I am yours I swear
my love, my touchy nerve
my peace, my dove

Come let's walk,
come let's talk
Besides these quiet waters
see those beautiful skies
our emotions written on the stars
hear the lovely singing birds
For this time, I wait for you
till you come, I'll keep patient
come beside me, nearer dear come

Smile, my weakness will be gone
Glance at me, I'll know your heart I won
Beloved, walk and joy in me will be born
Heal me with your soft tone
I have you, I have all
It's a dream come true;
that dear you are mine
It's only one thing I'm having that day
please be my valentine...

I Love You

I love you
Saying these words as the nimbus cloud spread its tears upon the land
Waiting for the answer as you turn your head and let go of my hand
Will I ever see love as it flows within the flowing march of waters?
And be envy of seeing the sweetness of the two promising lovers

I love you
This heart longs for someone to utter these words to my hopeless lonely heart
And again awaken from a long sleeping grave to face this charming art
Someone who posses pure devotion for my love, she whom I shall adore
Ill begin a new from my shattered dreams and forget what was then before

I love you
To feel these words with in my heart yet then, I am most content
I shan’t ask God for I am already blessed I know our love was meant 
We shall cherish the love we treasure, soar and bring it to the skies 
And hope that we shall meet again in the promised paradise

your test

we try not to do bad things for we reap what we sow
,but if the road to hell is paved with good intention 
then where does all the bad ones go.
yet we try to avoid bad things
 so that evil would not preveil
-but why do we put so much stock in being good
 if we still end up in hell
for we as human are a powerful race/
 when one fall there's another to take his place .
when faced with problems we find ways to escape.
 knowing that worries dont last always ,
and every trial is just a test of our faith,,,,,,,,,

Burden In My Hand

I was coming down the mountain,
Run away children.
Everybody has their own opinion.
Holding it back hurt so bad,
Jumping out of my flesh and I said...

Follow me into the desert as thirsty as you are,
There's no station to fill the tank so do not drive your car.
Cause down below the truth is lying beneath the river bed,
So just close your eyes and bow your head.
Pain is suffering the torment of blood He shed,
Fall to your knees and drink the water that flows under her head.
I lost myself below the tree,
Would you cry for me.
I left everything deep within the sand,
Its just a burden in my hand.

Sealed With a Kiss

The night was still, doors locked. Clock struck midnight, the moonlight blocked. The city painted black, the streets were clear. To a man who walked alone, their demise crept near. Strutting in black, her lips shimmered red. For vengeance was her love, or so the story had said. Her heart was once broken, her dignity stolen. He left her for dead, her body bruised and swollen. No longer a victim, she hunted her prey. She wielded her gun, and with men she had her way. Her way wasn't lust, she had no heart for love, Each man she shot point blank, her demons she was free of. She once was a girl with a heart that shined gold, But what one mad had taken from her, that heart turned to cold. Left for dead in the moonlight, like a black dahlia she laid, Soaked in her blood, a demon she was made. Men were her victims, like a hawk hunted game, She once was an innocent, but no longer the same. Each man she saw, she saw his face, Wanted all to have paid, for what she could not erase. The news plastered her fame, she was facing twenty-five to forever, She would never get caught, for she was far too clever. For all men met her green eyes, they dreamed of pure bliss, Falling too far they were murdered, and sealed with a kiss.

Growing Love

Even though you just left today it feels like eternity.

Since you held me in your arms and I felt u close to me.

My heart aches that you had to go, but deep down in my heart i know.

That my love for you will always grow.

Passenger

Ever get that sinking felling?
The one you can't escape?
I'm walking down a lonely road.
A passenger of fate.

Every day is torcher.
A self-sustaining hell.
Every moment's a blind approach.
There's no one I can tell.

But my conscious still retains,
Thing's could be much worse.
Indecisive actions, perhaps...
Or lying in a hearse.

Still, my heart is yearning.
For whatever could have been.
I feel the dagger burrow in.
I'm bleeding with this pen.

I've said all I can say,
Now I'll just be on my way,
Down that lonely road again,
I'll walk forever, with no end.

I SKIMMED THE EARTH

I skimmed the earth......... 
In a blur of speed 
The flexed wing...... 
The heart to lead 
 
For, flying is everything.... 
I skimmed the Earth 
The feel of wind on my face 
The flying place............ 
The feathered wing 
 
Wings, aglow.............. 
Not far to go 
I skimmed the earth 
What I look for............ 
In my heart ,I know 
 
To fly through...... 
The Earths' beauty 
Wings perfectly true 
The blur of it all 
Such wings! 
I cannot fall.... 
 
They cannot know......... 
Why I fly so 
I skimmed the Earth 
My heart aglow 
 
The whys.......... 
The what fors.......... 
Natures' laws 
The heart flies.............. 
Just cause.......... 
Skimming the Earth.............. 
My true sense of worth

A Fiery Mountain

It was there upon a mountain to which it came. 
That of a great flames as he stood on what appear to be a work of sapphire stone. 
As it was in a heart of love that felt to which was great desire. 
It was of true love to which it was as God descended there in a cloud of smoke and fire. 
That to which was written commandments of love as they had feared that of great love. 
It was there 3000 was slew as many had beg to keep what they knew. 
That of mercy and love did he have, especially when none follow what they had. 
For it was many signs showed in the eye’s but there was none to which had believed in thy.  
That of a heart we follow as we wish to be by his side. 
That in a blink of an eye we could all just die. 
But it was there on Mount Sinai to which swords was thrown when the 
people all sin in that of Gods throne. 
For it was to which he knew that of your soul as we seek that to which is true. 
And that is, Gods love through and through. 
It is there he parted body and soul as he to repent that of a hurt from inside. 
That of his fading love had they stiff-necked his love. 
But it was that of great love to which he send that of his sons love. 
That in him we all might be saved but in him he gave his life that to which he 
parted some men’s life. 
But it is that day of a coming that all will know that night. 
That to which will be of no mercy for they who sin in life. 
So repent thee there before the lord that he may spare you at door. 
That in your heart you may know that of him to which he will give you life in the end. 
But know that of where your heart is this day because God said there is a way. 
So believe me be, that it is a sword on the end. 
That if you don’t take him in, then you will drown in the end. 
Not that of just the sea but that of no love will you have but it 
will be that of a fiery flame to all will burn in flames. 
So quench thy thirst this day in him that in your heart you fine that of your love in him. 
But know that of your heart, that you know him in the end. 
And he may be merciful and spare your life from that of a fiery mountain on the end. 
With lots of love and praying for you and that is I see you in the end. 
With lots of love from my heart to you, that you may find that of your love too. 
And that is God's love and that is a burning desire of a love from a Fathers end.
That you may be spare from the fire on the end.

Why

Ive tryed to learn 
Ive tryed to fly
all you seem to want
is for me to cry
Tryed to run
tryed to hide
you love my pain
youll love when I die
I said I would follow you to the end of time
but if you dont step up this heart well stay mine.
I wake every moring to only pain
my life is unliveable 
why wont this change
I dont want heaven
nore live in hell
just remove this life
form this cell
stop my time
stop my pain 
noone knows
to them is all the same
But I have to wake every day to other peoples happiness
so fuk your games 
Ill die alone if thats the only way
what can i do. 
when my little sister curses you.
Maybe shes right!

Return

So heavy this heart had been
A few days of distorted bliss
Walking as in darkness
Falling at every step
Bumping into the wall
And walking as though blind

No music heard
So quiet the place remained 
Nobody speaks to nobody
All remained to oneself

No secrets shared
No love
Companionship lost
Bliss forgotten

Return, return
The heart breaks
The soul moans
Peace erodes by the second

Just to save the joy
And restore the fellowship
Return
And lets start together again

A PAINTING MADE FOR ME

A beautiful sun...
A painting made for me
If colours were words...
They would soar like birds
In a sky made for me
 
The heart knows
The colours I see
For, I feel them
In a painting made for me
 
A sunset
The colour of honey
Washed away
Tumbling clouds
In a painting made for me
 
Dusklight
In a sky made for me
I saw
What I felt
In a heart made for me
 
A beautiful dying sun
A painting for me
Tumbling clouds
Soaring birds
On a silver sea

An Old Flame

I first tried to kill my old flame with my tears.
It seems she knew the depth of my fears.

She grab me and pulled me toward the fire.
I knew inside she still my heart desire.

I tried to escape and I fell at her feet.
Lying there in agony and defeat.

Die old flame is what I screamed to the fire.
My old flame would not die in the fire.

One part of me wants her to die in the flame.
Can I actually say she is the blame.

Her memories still haunts me in my sleep.
For my love for her runs deep.

Why can't I forget the past?
And be free of her at last.

I tried to over come my fears
I tried to drown her with my tears.

Her love will always be in my heart to keep.
Now I just sit by the fire and watch my old flame and weep.

Dali,Bob and Me

How does it feel,to be in a crowd that's
so grey?
Know one to understand ,like cows
grazing in a field of baby blue
grass.
know one having one single answer
that will make hope last.
Until the next time we wine in need of
milk.
Like rolling stones going down a hill
made of silk.
Beautiful colours every where ,but
beening mean we hope it rips.
Black and blue cowboys with guns
on hips.
Though the false love that I have
and the real desire from not having
put in red.
How does it feel to not know anything
any more?
Soul is at the core.
Opening vault, signs of the times,
hidden in Purple skies, why?
can i dream of a Bull killing the
Matador?
I rather love,who wants me to kill
what for?
I quit!
Let me think,while the Sun starts to
sink in pink.
Bob asked" How does it feel to be like
a rolling stone?
I only keep moving, because I want life
to leave me alone.

Luciferia I-- Cease To Exist

I sense something in her eyes that feels like tragedy She closed her heart but its dark pulse Wilts and stetchs against the wanes How many days will the passion bleed Till it subsides into the new pain We are the ones who will face the blame ''Don't you see what's infront of me, I have to face it all I know there's something wrong help is what I want but it's not what I find You're all filled with troubling lies and incoherent minds Cant you see you're strangling me with every last word There's something you don't know Lying in my heart is why you want to throw the stone'' Her raven eyes fill the silence Luciferia we cease to exist it's burning away-- all others' reliance Luciferia we cease to exist my darkly darling don't fade away Luciferia we cease to exist beware we've became their prey Luciferia we cease to exist

LOVELIGHT

The colour, 
of a lovers' kiss 
Fills you too 
The heart cannot miss, 
loves' colour hue 
 
Such ethereal light, 
falling on your shoulders 
Took my heart 
Took my sight 
 
The scent of you, 
warmth too 
Such lovelight, 
inwards burning through 
 
Such light, 
fell upon me 
For, together 
It is meant to be 
 
Such intensity, 
for you 
Lovelight, 
glowing, 
deep inside of me

The colour red, 
last light sunset 
Come to bed

The colour red,

Radiating on our bed,

My heart,

Last light, 
falling 
The sky on fire, 
my heart calling 
My desire, 
I give you the night

My heart given to you...........

This magnificent view 
The colour red 
Colour sunset

The Truth is in the Silence

Slowly I rise out of my dreams
As my loved one slumbers forth
so trusting, so peaceful in the night
I watch the rising of his breath
and delight in the closeness of his being
Here is the one, the man, the champion of my heart
Without this soul where are the boundaries of my heart -
where do they stop, where do they start?

This love, our love is endless
Like the summer breeze that cools you,
from the rising heat within
As you grasp the reality, the reason
The storm of the tempest that is passion
As he cares to glance my way
once again the fire in my heart soars madly
To think this is my love, this is real, this is true
The ferocity of my love moves like a storm
Ebbing and flowing like the tide
Always constant and vibrant, forever alive

As the stars in the sky shine and the
Moon glows with luminescence
So do the corners of my heart
When I feel the threads of your
outstretched love reach into my being
and stroke my inner soul with your unspoken touch
This silence of communication, this stillness
This is where the truth is....

How real and tender is that which is not said
That which is only felt, perceived as true
That emanates with a look for no-one else
but me and you
Within our silence we exist in our treasured truth
The truth of love, my blessed one,
The truth of life – and how I will always love you

Only She Cries

What If I told You That I Loved you
would we care
would we die
 Chains surrounding Alice
Only She Cries
 
World Banished her
Love left her
all Alone
Melancholia presides over
 
Alice dies again
Will she ever reign
 
Will she ever see
what’s here to be
Only She Cries
 
She’s a ghost
Nobody to call Her name
Only She Cries
will she not live
whispers of her Raven mind
only control her
There’s no hope
Only she Cries
What If I told You That I Loved you
 
 
Empty Without a savoir
Will She ever be cured from this
will she breakaway
Gaia couldn’t be so cruel
Just to wail away—Let the Banshee Crie
Just wail away the pain
wail away the pain
 
Enter my heart and you’ll see
that Was the only thing you could ever need
Alice; only she cries
let it show
That love never dies
Through Euphoria
through melancholia
 
 
She’s a ghost
Nobody to call Her name
Only She Cries
will she not live
whispers of her Raven mind
only control her
There’s no hope
Only she Cries
What If I told You That I Loved you
 
 
She’s a ghost
Nobody to call Her name
Only She Cries
will she not live
whispers of her Raven mind
only control her
There’s no hope
Only she Cries
What If I told You That I Loved you
 
 
You didn’t know
how you could save her
Only if you could her
Alice dies
Only she cries

As If She Was A Cherry Tree

She wakens with the rising sun,
emerging from night's sable net,
her body--cold and naked from
the silence of its silhouette.

Though barren from a wintry sleep,
the dawn recruits her once again,
restoring her cherubic bark
to sate the restless hearts of men.

Her garden keepers, like a breeze,
deluge throughout her limber being,
embellishing her slender trunk
with trimmings suited for a queen.

They dress her down in garnished silk,
for men desiderate appeal
and flock behind beginning buds
in hopes their blossoms will reveal.

They veil her countenance with snow
to imitate the charming moon,
so that her lustful audience
will drift away in carnal swoon.

She exits from her private grove
to radiate her temporal cure;
her lips are laced with cherry and
possess a saccharine allure.

She lilts about on lifted roots,
exuding floral elegance,
and every room she slips into
is subjugated by her scents.

Her older sister starts to pluck
a melody on flavored strings.
Away--the rosy sapling flies,
performing as the trio sings!

Her limbs display like graceful wind;
her petals sweep the lustrous floor;
her gaze, like vernal fire, burns
into the eyes she dances for!

The night returns to claim her bloom;
so quickly does she flee from me,
to leave but soil in her stead--
as if she was a cherry tree.

BURNING HEART, BURNING STAR

I viewed from afar 
the things I saw 
That lay in my heart 
Burning star 

The fire flickers 
Burning star 
Burning heart 

I was there, 
in the cold of space 
My heart 
Laid bare 

The fire flickers... 
The dying embers of my heart 
Burning star 

Such things, 
viewed from afar 
Such detachment, 
burning star 

The fire flickers 
Burning heart 
Burning star 

I reached out to a star 
Say what you mean 
The heart quickens 
The fire flickers, 
from afar

The Flautist

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~THE FLAUTIST  ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

 THE FLAUTIST fluently flaunted her flute- Music flew faultlessly through the airwaves,flying fluidly above the noise of the blustering city                                                    
THE fLAUTIST created a calm fragrance,who's flavor of creativity fell-well onto your soul creating a soul stirring calmness across the city. 
 
She played her flute clean into the night  vehemently, over the feverish chaos - And the people in the park and  in the city could hear clearly as they walked in rhythmic tunes/ She flaunted her music like sweet low hanging fruit, Her music dangled beautiful and singly.  She alone,Solo-ed notes of delightful serenity-  
 
  The flautist moved the masses to a state of bliss;Like free kisses flying in the wind landing on ears conquering and engaging spirits ,conquering pandemonium with her flute, she blew her flute... SHE BLEW HER FLUTE, and we marched and listened obediently . She blew her flute and we marched magnificently to her concert.

The Love I have For Thee

My heart is heavy for the hour
I asked the darkness to lend me loves enduring power
From dawn to dusk I think of thee
Should I pray to he who sits upon that heavenly thrown to set my spirit free

I beg thee
As I sit upon this dusty smoke stained asphalt, to let my heart be
Showering the dark for fear of what the angels may perceive.

Hear me now!
I am not queen of virtues thieves.
What I know is the sorrow love leaves

Touch my lips before you go
So profound that I should beg your puritan soul

He who view the works of evil proudly stands before my world with arms open to 
me
"This is the love of loves, that undying love, that is surely more than any other love 
could be.
This is the love that you have for me, and I for thee."

When the purple shadow creeps upon our parting, will this love that is the 
greatest love of loves still remain to be
Or will the angels cast it in to the voraciousness of the raging sea
Still the moon will capture its sweetness inside of me
Holding my heart with bitter sweet anxiety
Forever its hue remaining as a glowing presence inside of me

Having more than life can offer to the softness or our love we will surely see
"It is the love of loves that grows inside of me
Then the stillness of this love of loves will tear the sureness of what dreams left 
of this love we are straining to be

What is this love we can not let go of for fear of staining our souls with the 
aftermath of its agony
This is the love I have for thee..

Smeared rouge broken nail torn slip
I'd waited for you again after the dance a single light flickers a final sign to fix my lipstick our song played on the flashing seaburg just around two quite thee empty gesture that I'd been waiting. far to long on you with much class I would add until I bent to retrieve my broken heart from the paisley covered tile why it was sheer elegance dining alone when an interesting figure chanted are all these seats taken i raised my eyes and calmly replies 
yes they are all occupied for me

THAT FAMILIAR QUICKENING... part 1

Turbine whistling
Wait...
Until all is green
Time to go
 
That familiar quickening
Of a heart
Trained in the art of war
To do battle
Rotors spinning
 
Left and right...
The tech calls
Clear!
Progressive collective
Rising high
In to the sunlight
 
Time to target
Five minutes
That familiar quickerning
Switches, set
 
Terrs, visual!
Lynxes, marking with frantan
Left hand orbit
Time to go...
 
Heave of cyclic
Nose up
Shudder
Bleeding off speed
Safeties , off
You hear the snap and click
 
In a cloud of dust
A fireforce deplaned
For needs must...
Terrs, visual
 
Max power,
collective to full
Building speed
Skimming trees
 
Tech, observing
They're running!
Brownings chatter
The cordite smell
The enemy scatter
 
Watching the fuel
Adjusting throat mike
Ten minutes to bingo
Orbitting
Hearing the battle on the ground
Time to go...
 
In dusty skies
K-cars and G-cars flew
Skimming across the bush
Purposeful dragonflies
Trained in the art of war
 
To fight anywhere
That familiar quickening
Turbine whistled
Wait...
Until all is green
Time to go...

IN A MISTY WAY

We could meet again 
In a misty way 
The Wraiths slain 
In a land far away 

In a misty way 
Meet again, one day 
You can not tear apart 
The beauty that lies, 
deep in the heart 

What we have lost today... 
Will be found 
In a misty way 

A land of forests 
In a misty way 
A way will be found 
To find all we have... 
Lost today 


We could meet again 
In a misty way 
The Wraiths slain 
In a land far away 

In a misty way 
Meet again, one day 
You can not tear apart 
The beauty that lies, 
deep in the heart 

What we have lost today... 
Will be found 
In a misty way 

A land of forests 
In a misty way 
A way will be found 
To find all we have... 
Lost today

A PAINTING MADE FOR ME

A beautiful sun...
A painting made for me
If colours were words...
They would soar like birds
In a sky made for me
 
The heart knows
The colours I see
For, I feel them
In a painting made for me
 
A sunset
The colour of honey
Washed away
Tumbling clouds
In a painting made for me
 
Dusklight
In a sky made for me
I saw
What I felt
In a heart made for me
 
A beautiful dying sun
A painting for me
Tumbling clouds
Soaring birds
On a silver sea

Help us be strong and brave forever no matter.

Last Will & Testament

To Mr. Otto Osips Ochs
My friend, the dream is exhausted
But as long as you chase it, I will follow
Mr. Dylan Thomas 
Perhaps destiny it’s self will spare us
To yours, mine, our struggle 
Their smiles
Here’s to serenity 
Accept this peace
To those who do not understand 
Perhaps you never will
To Forsythe 
Orange monkeys, brown bricks
To Fallen days 
Summer musk smirks
So we wish upon autumn stories
And still recall a sudden May
The Garden district 
Birds feed, individuals chirp
The sudden closure that lurks
To holidays 
Like people they come, they go
To Knowledge
What is good language?
Ignorance, my southern king
My Etruscan dancer 
Kiss the mistletoe of your beloved tragedy
Emerson
I beg of you 
Keep your self reliance
So I ask you, what do you do?
When life points all its fingers at you?
To End, despair, and happiness
Why not just coexist within struggles
To the most adorable infants
I insist that you cry
Because in the future 
When things go not your way
Your peers and I 
Will simply tell you to stop whining
To harmony 
I’d rather have your faults than marry
My well wishers
It’s been fun
Children 
I insist that you play
Enjoy the withered ways of the hours that fade
When life begins to settle around you
You begin to only focus on 
What you have to do
To the harlots I lay with in
You can do better than me
To those whom stood foot in sand
Wrap your self in a warm memory and let it be
To fatal attraction 
What ever happened to you?
Caesar
Until the end, my friend
Brutus
My lord this is as far as we go
To my viewers 
I leave you my despair
My expired whereabouts
My truth in well being
Deceit 
I leave you my absence on days I do not miss
My love
My only beleaguered wish
To life
The darkness I continue to kiss
To my conscience
I cannot get over you
To the world 
The end, all is yours
To our sun
The moon, the blemishing
To Phoebe 
Be eternal, mark, and benefit from it
To relinquishing 
I keep trotting
To this decision in essence
Where will I go? 
For now, I do not know
But maybe that’s the significance in the matter
To Colorado 
I look forward to our rendezvous and tryst
To departure
A lavender scent
To laughter
A soothing melody to present
To my tears 
You are nothing more than failing worries
To Eternity 
Time seems wounded, love please hurry
To Monroe Louisiana 
Maybe I’ll see you all around sometime
As for my will 
I leave none, it carries on within me

Aquarian Dream II- Leaving Kali Yuga

A glimpse in your gilded eyes Tells me all inside your lieing mind How can you Stand without a spine How can you speak without a will Failed to announce the pain Will they realize the illusion Is it all to late? The lies that are so common Have put up a delusion Infront Of the people's mind So deep away from the dark Will we come when father is coming For us, is it all to late? Soft little messenger I dare you to spread the word About our dying world All come far and near Listen to what we have been waiting to hear The walls have broken down The gates have been breached The Keep stormed in Praise and sing They have killed our king Our conformity is on it's last day All Black Skies have been tainted with grey Our flags are now just tinder The palace has all been burned to cinders Our Empire has fell Praise and sing They have killed our king I see the light of a dawning Age Let a new era begin An Aquarian dream a day where we are all free Inside our minds; our hidden refuge But there's no need to hide perfection Concordia shall be our queen Justice, independence, liberty are our only virtues free to be whoever our heart let's us be Go to the tower, strike the bell Soft little messenger And tell of Victory All come far and near Listen to what we have been waiting to hear The walls have broken down The gates have been breached The Keep stormed in Praise and sing They have killed our king Our conformity is on it's last day All Black Skies have been tainted with grey Our flags are now just tinder The palace has all been burned to cinders Our Empire has fell Praise and sing They have killed our king All come far and near Listen to what we have been waiting to hear The walls have broken down The gates have been breached The Keep stormed in Praise and sing They have killed our king Our conformity is on it's last day All Black Skies have been tainetd with grey Our flags are now just tinder The palace has all been burned to cinders Our Empire has fell Praise and sing They have killed our king

Love or Angst

Kiss me, 
Lace your fingers through my hair,
Love me,
Bathe my heart in the open air,
Need me, 
Call me from your high front stair,
And maybe I’ll love you as well,
Maybe I’ll fall under your spell.

In September,
I see you coming near,
In the hallway,
Whisper soft nothings in my ear,
In the morning, 
When no one else is here,
As the sunlight comes streaming through the window,
And you tell me there is nothing left to fear.

The Springtime,
Left much to be desired,
You kisses,
Kept me flying higher and higher,
But walked away on down that road,
Left me to die in my hearts fire,
I thought my heart was my own,
But when in love I lost all the heart I owned.

Lost Life

Judgmental eyes staring through me 
Looking for an answer 
Searching the darkness of my heart 
There is nothing there but a few forgotten memories of you
Frozen in time my heart will forever be
You were the light that once brought warmth to me 
The light that lived within me
Without you I am forever lost in the frozen wasteland of life
Doomed to live out my days without thought
Thoughts of happiness escape me now
Happiness is to fast for my heart, I cannot keep up 
Even from the start I am filled with pain
Pain that is dragging me down to the bottom of existence
I will disappear…forgotten by all, and loved by none
I have been destroyed with or without will or need
As I raise the gun to my head…
I escape myself...

Brick and Mordar

And it hurts to think you never cared
All I asked was that you would be there
But it's easier to play the game

I gave you all of me, I'm such a fool
Cause what I want, it never follows through
It's nothing new

I hope you got what you wanted
Did you get all that you needed?
Cause now I'm just another name
On your list
Just another notch on your bed-post
And you're just another scar on my heart
Another layer to my wall

Your words were
Nothing more than letters
Your actions nothing more than moves
I wish that I could be like you
Life would be much easier
With a heart that's made of stone

Between your beautiful lies I lost the truth
I would change it all if I could choose
I've never felt so used

Despite your promises deep down I know
I would hear them say "I told you so"
But the pain I cannot show

I hope you got what you wanted
Did you get all that you needed? 
Cause now I'm just another name 
On your list
Just another notch on your bed-post 
And you're just another scar on my heart
Another layer to my wall

Your words were
Nothing more than letters
Your actions nothing more than moves
I wish that I could be like you
Life would be much easier
With a heart that's made of stone
(Repeat 1x)

THE GROUND WILL LAUGH

When that precious body would be lowered
In the ground when another phase opens
The ground would laugh, the termite would smile
And welcome you with a heavy wide mouth.
When that pretty eyes shall touch the ground 
The earth will dance merrily and the worms  
Will rejoice and laugh heartily for he will
Hold you in ransom for the pains you've caused me
You treated me like a boy instead of a man i am
Tear the veil and look into the eyes of the ungodly
Woman who torment my soul.
She made me go through hell in the name of love 
I was made mad because i love her


The dust will laugh when that pretty face
Shall return to its maker, dust to dust.
Why don't you give me a chance to treat you 
Like a lady you are?
I love you but you love me not
You starve me of love and affection
I hunger for the smell of your body each 
Night i retire alone in the dark room, thinking
Why don't you make your heart my home
Where i will well forever?
Treat me like a man with feelings and emotion
why allow another to maltreat the body whilst i longed for it?
Give me hope for the sake of our future generations.

Your kiss my wish

If you listen to me closely
you may hear a whispering wish
Quiet words straight from my heart
and then a tender kiss
I am thinking of you always
we share with the night into day
Dreaming a lifetime adventure
with a kiss we hold on and pray
Can your heart hear me?
What are the feelings you miss?
Is it the need to be special?
Are you in need of my kiss?
Am I here dreaming?
Can this really be?
My heart has truly been given
a wish with a kiss just for me

The Red Red Rose

 before our time drew to a close
you touched my life with poetry
You told me of a red red rose
then you made those words so clear to me

the beauty in a red red rose
is hard to love, even harder to hold
for its freshness fades and dies
but the love that's held inside
is not so easy to let go
for in the heart, it is contained

Now through my life, you've come and gone
and sorrow was our legacy 
I try my best to carry on
without the better part of me
My lady, and my little girl
the greatest joy that I have known
but selfishness destroyed our world
she's left to reap what we have sown

the beauty in a red red rose
is hard to love, even harder to hold
for its freshness fades and dies
but the love that's held inside
is not so easy to let go
for in the heart it is contained

So I try my best to make it through
the truth you told me long ago
all that's left of me, is my love for you
I no longer hold the rose

the beauty in a red red rose
is hard to love, even harder to hold
for its freshness fades and dies
but the love that's held inside
is not so easy to let go
for in the heart it must remain

before our time drew to a close
you touched my life with poetry

Ice Cold Lips

Peeking through the burning bushes
into your eyes once more,
As i lie in state i see a face
that ive seen someplace before.

The things you said spinning through my head
like an old revolving door,
And the face comes back so jarringly,
of a girl who broke my soul and took my heart
and smashed it on the floor.

So save your letters, words don't fix
The things you crushed in this filthy mix
Your inactions describe all of this
Your heart is cold, but so is my lips.

Your eyes burn me like a stockpiled flame
I itch to scratch the scars
But it seems there's just to much pain
Like the impact of two cars.

The anger at your indecisions make me
want to smile, so get off your knees
no more begging please, im sure
you'll be back on them in a while.
Don't be mad at my opinons
though they may be Rated R,
Must be great to be so oblivious
and not really care who you are.

So save your letters, words don't fix
The things you crushed in this filthy mix
Your inactions describe all of this
Your heart is cold, but so is my lips.
So save your letters, words don't fix
The things you crushed in this filthy mix
Your inactions describe all of this
Your heart is cold, but so is my ice
frozen lips.

THE PRINCE OF THE NORTH

The icy wind blows down........ 
Snow flurries fall from the Princes' Crown 
Inside that wintry glow............ 
Is a heart beating............. 
Wanting love so....... 
Wanting this meeting.......... 

Who can touch the heart? 
Of a prince aloof and cold? 
Which princess? ,the love can hold? 

Steel grey eyes........... 
Hidden sparkle too 
The shyness revealed 
The Prince of the North to take.............. 
The beauty of every snow flake, 
and lay before a princess a gift of love healed....... 
Upon a snowy field 

For ,the Princess gave a gift long ago.......... 
A gift,so bright 
So one day he might............. 
Venture forth from the cold land.......... 
Under the gift so............ 
The gift of the Northern Light, 
and ask for the hand 
of the Faerie Princess........... 

The Faerie Princess, 
and her dancing light 
brought to the North........ 
Something bright...... 
The heart began to melt.............. 
Of the Prince that saw her 
Upon a snowy field 
and his heart did yield

A DROP OF WINE

A DROP OF WINE 

A drop of wine shall fall... 
On to  a doublet 
Staining forever 
What was snowy white 
Blood red 
A passing during the night 

A walk along the castle wall 
I was there 
I saw you fall 
Taken from me 
I heard you call 

A drop of wine shall fall 
Blood red 
Staining forever 
My heart instead 

It started as a game... 
Skipping across parapets 
Such delight! 
You needed it 
Always done at night 
A free spirit... 
In all but name 

You delighted us all, 
with your antics in the Great Hall 
I saw you fall 
From a parapet 
My heart ,leapt 

You cannot conquer 
The journey within 
A drop of wine 
Shall fall 
On to my heart 
Blood red 
You will always be mine 
Inwards , I bled 

The call of tiny birds 
Fluttering of wings 
Took you to the stars 
Where you saw, 
so many wonderful things 

The journey within... 
Can sometimes begin 
With a drop of wine 
Blood red 
Staining forever 
Hearts , instead

Black Velvet

Black Velvet, That to which falls the shade of a moon come that of our hearts 
desire engraved from the inside. Is it love we feel or the dark side of our lives we 
hear? After all, isn’t that what we live is the love of the heart? Is it not that to which 
tears us apart is the fallen of a moon? It is that of my beloved that I store there in 
darkness. As my life I seek for that of righteous. It is there the velvet falls as it 
darkens the stage. It is there I have found true love that one day it will stay. It 
soars as high as a mountain breeze but lays low as a soul below. That in a 
cavern beyond some hill I find that of some things to be real. I find in life is to die 
but to live for Christ is a rise. That not only is that road hoed but it’s also rocked 
with love. That in one, I could ever be so bless to have. That he gave me you and 
my veil blew a peep, which in my heart there was a light of keep. It came of fine 
silk and love from end to end. That you blew the veil in the wind as it lay upon that 
of a pond fill hole. Only for you to cross and none other I told. That in my heart laid 
that of a sunlight untold as you reveal that of my deepest soul. You have pulled 
that veil that dried the rain as the darkness fell that to which reins. You have 
found that of a black velvet drape as my deepest soul yarn for that of love’s wake. 
As I know I have found one of heavens born because you have made my black 
velvet worn. That through it you can see that to which is torn. And that’s my soul 
and my love for you is torn. That in you I lay all my cards that one day that velvet is 
torn and I find that of love not torn. That in you I find that shade to be warm as you 
have draped your on velvet across that to which is worn. For this a moon comes 
shade that in you have made my day. As my black velvet gives that of a heart of 
shade as my heart loves that forever in the days. As I love you under the 
darkness of shades.

Knowledge of the Heart 10-1-05

You must always know
never to break any heart
You must make it shine,
and never make it breathless.
Rememeber a heart can breathe,
and can tell you when you love someone.
It also tells you
what path to follow.
Your heart is very precious,
and very sacret in your body.
Rememeber that the heart
will always help when you need it to.

To the Edge of the World (The Song of Navriss pt.2)

Like a vulture, he came to my hometown,
To my hometown.
Just a little boy, I watched him
Knock upon the old wooden door,
To the old man’s house,
The old grizzled Moor.

In silence, the man in black fled down the old road,
Beside him running silent,
Was the grizzled old Moor.
Behind the two upon a horse,
I rode through the cold.
Through the charred hills, 
Beyond mountains old.

We travelled through lands, where the sun feared to tread, 
And the midnight sun filled my heart with dread.
Still the two, upon dark gossamer wings,
Led me back into the sun,
But it would be many years
Before our journey was finally done.

	Hey you, with the chill in your bones
	Come gather round . . .
	Pull yourself up closely
	Warm yourself by the fire . . .
	Can you feel it?
	
Seasons changed
While the years sailed on by
Still we went on,
Forever on, and on. 
Beneath a sun and moon
Trading places in the sky.
Beyond seas so vast, 
So cold.
Until at last we came,

 
To the edge of the world, 
Where a man now grown up
Can touch the stars.
I stood upon the edge of the place, 
The place they go, their world.
Which is cold, sometimes hot
Beyond the edge of the world.

With my cloak wrapped tightly around me
I followed the man in black, 
Yet behind the old Moor
Into the heart of a darkened land
Where souls yearn to be free.
And my eyes opened wide, 
So eager to see what I might find.

	Hey you, with the chill in your bones
	Come gather round . . .
	Pull yourself up closely
	Warm yourself by the fire . . .
	Can you feel it?
	
Bright coin in my hand, 
‘Twas this I gave to the dead ferryman.
Over black mirrored water, 
Silently we sailed over the Sea of Styx.
Little more than my shadow
I studied the black-dressed man,
Just as he studied the souls beneath the waves,
A spiralling helix.

Upon the far shore
Minos sat upon a throne of bone
With his host of the damned, 
For the grizzled old Moor 
Minos passed judgement severe,
Yet unto black naught was said nor done,
Yet unto me was passed
The cruellest judgement.

I cried for all to hear,
“I am alive! Alive.”
But Minos sat back and smiled
And said, “Oh woe to yea curiosity unfed,
You who had followed black while still very much alive
Shall walk eternity through the footsteps of the dead.”
	
	I pray you heed me well,
	For we are the spirits of regret,
	The souls of the Forgotten
	And we are the ghosts of . . .
	Sorrow . . .

And so I sit,
Beneath the muted stars,
On the edge of the world . . .

Looking For Love

As each day unfolds
I wonder what my future holds

Will I find him? Will he stay?
Will his heart be mine one day?

Is he even out there?  Will it be real
that I could have true love to feel?

Will I be alone again tomorrow?
Will he take me from this sorrow?

How long can my heart survive?
Until my love can come alive

TO LOVE MYSELF SO INTENSELY...

When life was given to me,
from the kindest mother
this ungrateful world ever knew,
I caught my first breath
as my tiny heart started to laugh;
that moment was ingrained in time,
instilled in that child's memory...
for countless years to pull me through,
reminding myself who got me on this safe shore!

To love myself so intensely...
is to honor her degnified memory,
others may have not been so lucky
to have had a mother who had
loved them so passionately;
I heeded her words, listened how she prayed...
even in suffering, she sought the presence of God,
the same God who has been testing a faith so bold!

My righteous mother was an image of holiness,
her pure heart despised ugliness...
a saint who will never be recognized,
and so unknown for her sacrifice!
She had the pity of Jesus's mother,
and the perseverance of a martyr;
had she be living in Nero's time,
she woud have died for Christ!

To love myself so intensely
is to be grateful to her immensely,
and consume that fervent love
in the same way she did;  no stories,
or ballads will be writtten about her...
to somehow remember her,
but with my loving poem everyone will know,
and come to realize that mothers dont' have
to be heroines to go down in History!

the price of love.

Up upon the mountain sits a mighty dragon.
watching the world go by from a castal made of pure gold.
down in the vally below there on a wagon,
sits a maid so fair her beauity is well told.
the mighty dragon truly loves his gold,
it fills his heart with real desire.
but for all the gold he has lost his soul.
for the maid has set his stone heart on fire.
His love for her was driving him insane.
he could not  talk to her as a dragon.
he did not want to burn her with his flame.
He could not tell her he loved her in a love song.
the dragon lust for the the maid was out of control.
So he went to the only one who could help him.
I need to be a man, so I can love and grow old.
He explained to the old witch standing beside him.
Do you know what your asking? she sighed.
I'll give up my magic for a human soul, he replied.
The old witch did her powerfull magic as she cried,
to change the dragon to a man, who could live and die.
High on the mountain sits the mighty dragon king,
in the chair beside him is the maid as his queen.
His happiness came with a high price it seams.
but who needs magic when love can fulfill his dreams.

White Walled Universe

They're nothing short of infinite,
these thoughts, these rich ideas of mine;
though, crippled in reality,
for which there is no parting line.

Because I cannot slip away
from that which is sustaining me,
I'll mask the concrete sky and earth
with thin, artistic ivory.

Though blank at first, these paper sheets
are much like panes of ductile glass,
reflecting everything I am,
as I control their supple mass.

The mind, much like a document,
can be erased--or worse, destroyed!
Although, I am exempt from such
when tending to my pearly void.

The creativity I house,
evolving even while I sleep,
will one day change the concrete world
with notions I have sown and reaped.

And so, imagination reigns;
it drizzles from a flimsy sky,
within my white walled universe
where kernel-concepts never die.

In Christ I believe

It is there upon the earth to which he thought to give life with a breath. 
It was there to which he had first thought of man and believe. 
There in his mind as well as his heart he started what was never to be apart. 
He started that of life that in him there was perfection only to be deceived by                   
that of none we want. 
That of deception he did get as man was talk into that of, to which we know 
was sin. 
So there it begins the days of Adam’s decent. 
That we were place in sin because of that of Satan’s deceit, there it started                           
the days of times trails and trouble as he gave Jesus to die at the hands of the trouble.        
It was there he walk as well as gave his life. 
That none would perish but have ever lasting life. 
But it was there we were cleansed by that of an ever lasting blood of the cross. 
We pray and say where thou art in the time of need but yet all still fail to believe. 
Why is it we only call upon him in time of need when we never seek him on our 
knees? 
Is it that we really don’t believe and think we came from that of a 
monkeys need? 
So where do you suppose the monkey came from because someone had                           
to make that even of you and me. 
It is there somewhere deep in a galaxy that God the Father waits to see. 
If we all seek his glory and love for it is from the heart he first love. 
Because it was that of his son he gave with love. 
That for you and me we would forever be loved… 
In Jesus name we pray, Amen with a blessing of love.

A Place That Means So Much

Here is where I've spent many days
I've made many memories in many ways
I've learned an aweful lot about life
How to get through trial and dodge strife

Here I have spent a lot of time alone
I've tied my shoes and took care of my own
I started to reason, I began to think
Word after word I scribbled in ink

Years came, they passed, and I grew
There were piles of things I'd muddled through
I've gained strength; I've been taught how to stand
Sometimes I sink, but I'm walking on land

My Father showed me the beauty of the stars
I learned to appriciate His scars
I pondered the meaning of the universe
Then I remembered that this world's cursed

Reality drifted to distant
Time spun, lost it's track for an instant
I'm a single grain of sand on the beach
But the hairs of my head, the Lord knows each

I spent countless night on my back wide awake
Wondering what in this life I would partake
Then I'd close my eyes, I'd be satisfied
My Father has a plan, He'd be my guide

Through the woods I took long quiet walks
But the Lord was there, we'd have silent talks
Creation stood strong, it was all elite
The warm, moist ground welcomed my bare feet

Other evenings I'd sit around the fire
The flames were livewires reaching higher
And the grand, old trees hovered above
Here is where my heart was taught to love

I learned how to live and discovered God's plan
The world is a harvest field filled with man
I am a laborer of the King
One day everything will worship and sing

Many days I hold close as great memories
Those days at the camp hold my life's stories
Here I became who I am and for here my heart burns
Time goes by, but I know I'll return

THE WEST WIND PRINCE

Far in the West, 
over the blue sea 
Was the home of the West Wind Prince 
Who's crown, the colour of sunset 
The colour you would agree, 
The most beautiful since......... 
The Tapestries had been blessed 

The soft brown hair, 
with a crown , 
The colour of sunset 
This Princes' eyes........... 
The blue before the sun going down 

The wind so cool, 
The wind so strong........ 
The West Wind Prince............ 
Sailing along. 

Fresh and sweet 
This wind.......... 
This Prince...... 
The Princess he would like to wed 
The West Wind to the castle it led 

For the Kingdom of the West 
The Sunset Crown 
Worn when the earthlight goes down 
Such light! 
The West Wind Prince yearns for the light 

For the Sunset Crown........ 
So bright! 
Needs a Princess........... 
To stop the light going down, 
by being by his side 
The starlight 
To illuminate the night, 
when the sun does hide 

To the Great Hall, 
onwards he sped 
The Princess of Stars......... 
He wished to wed 
The wind cool and strong 
The Princes' heart to fall 
The Princes' heart did belong

Why

 Why did you go
why did you leave 
why did you take my heart and break it in so many different ways
why did you lie to me
why did you make me cry and wonder why
why did you tell me you loved me when all you did was use me
why did you break my heart when i gave up everything for you 
why didn't you stay true to me
why did you allow me to thank that everything was cool 
why do you do the things you do to me 
why did you leave me when all i did was try to give you everything you needed
why

I Dont know who you are

Another day another fight
tears of pain from just last night
theres nothing left to say 
lets call it quits just close the door

she comes to me every night 
dances around the flames 
holds my hand close to her heart 
to calm my soul 

yesterdays and moments past
open wounds and finishing last
to lose you is to lose myself
break the cycle stow the pain

i dont know who you are but its clear that you exist
your image eched in stone across my heart
if i could find a way to hold you tight and never fall to peices
anymore
anymore anymore

she comes to me every night 
dances around the flames 
holds my hand close to her heart 
to calm my soul

Because You Touched Me

LORD, I am weak but not unable to perceive I am nothing.
      I have no strength beside thee, I burden myself with heavier loads 
and everyday it seems I fall further and further from thy Grace, but, 
You carry me through. All I need is You everyday,
                                 Because You touched me!

LORD, I have failed thee, I follow my heart and fall real deep.
      My heart alone is fragile, deceitful, and weak and I cannot trust it,
it seems I can't find my way around in this valley of fog, but,
You stand always with me and together we walk hand in hand,
                                  Because You touched me!

LORD, You rescued and saved my dyeing heart that I could not save.
      You are my only source of light, You open my eyes to see the truth before me.
You've given me Your steady heart to trust while my world churns on this
pilgrim journey. You shed Your light on every path, right and left,
                                   Because You touched me!

LORD, I look within as if to hide me, but see only darkness inside me.
      I have nothing to offer thee, for all I have is thine, today is another day,
clouds will block my view but Your Grace and Love shines right through.
Just one more day and I shall enter into Your rest,
                                  Because You touched me!

(c) April 8, 2006                                            Rosemarie Schrock

Turn the page.

My heart races as time runs by too quick to notice standing still is I,
warmed by the days burden full from the nights closing curtain,
pen to paper my thoughts take over scribbles lines phrases on the paper they cover,
flashes of a time of a place far away searching for lines that still hide from the day,
inside roams a child within outside a cast of some one he calls a friend,
miss spelled thoughts for thats how I see it in my head,jumbled words always misread,
a laugh from he who is within a laugh for today he knows it was a sin,
the heart scared from a lesson learned long ago in many words it shows,
yet the bitter taste in my mouth isn't remorse suppressed anger are a pity party of doubt,
its the mornings coffee, the rest I let it all go years before now I just write to set it
free,
for it's not what I'm going through but how I made it through,
look at the faces that fill the streets inside of them are poems words phrases they keep,
some times you can't make on your own and they don't know we don't have to go it alone
stop...look around you...your not alone...let it go...your not the only one 
smile and some one will smile back at you lend a hand know now where you stand,
the past is there to show how we aged the present is before us lets turn the page,
we all lived life's we never chose but how we are now is our choice this we must know,
get over it move on stop ...theres so much time to change... your life this moment is for not,
you are...two  words easy enough to say ...the words that come after... are for you to
display,
I am some one, I am..., how would you finish it?what words fit?I am...
this is just a moment in our lives a moment to remember are forget moments in our eyes,
this write is just that words I wanted to say lines I wanted to display,
not looking for nothing in return I just wanted to write and now this page I will turn.

SMALL BLUE THING

I circle slowly around your heart 
for I carry a gift, 
and I wait 
for when I'm ready to start 

For this gift is a bright blue jewel 
The light in my eyes gives you a clue 

Small and precious,I hold with my hands 
for this stone will  be set in the ring of your heart, 
set in golden lands 

I circle slowly around your heart 

Reach out and touch the golden heart 
for I have a small blue thing 
For its home, is in your heart 
Jewel of blue, it's blue fire sparkling 

Golden light and fiery blue fire, 
these are the things I desire 

I circle slowly around your heart 

Gold and blue to make it true, 
colours reach out to touch the inner you 

For the inner you, 
you cannot disguise, 
with secrets and lies 
For the fire that glows within 
remains undimmed, 
without sin 

For as the colours glow, 
your thoughts and actions 
this is what you show 

Uncloak the fire within you, 
golden light,fire of blue 
Give to me everything 
I will give to you 

My blue fire for it's heart does sing 
will only work in golden light, 
reflecting 

For one cannot exist ,
without perfect swirl of colour in my fist 

I circle slowly around your heart 

For I hold a small blue thing, 
I give to you 
For this small blue thing 
is my heart, 
my heart for you

The Way You Stall And Cover

Why would you...
    Pull the plug
    Cut the chord
    Hang the harp
    [or] Bend the board
Sometimes it's best to just let things fall as they may

The wind is cutting life a knife through my fingers
I could have taken a hint just the same
But to take this as one is simply insane
I've only got a block or two 'til I get somewhere familiar

They call this part of downtown
The vampire's lair
Seeing as nothing even breathes until there's no sign of the sun

So I cross the street to my favorite spot
Find the darkest booth and begin to talk
To these blank pages
With words of ink
And like everything else, I let this rot and falter
Because sometimes it takes
More than a whisper.......to change

I make my way outside and head up the street
I can hear some friends I intended to meet
And we talked for what seemed like forever
About politics and people and whatever
And then we split our tab
And we split our paths
They head for the lot
And I begin to walk

Only two more hours until I sink into my bed
But don't forget me or the things I may have said
Because somewhere there's something that someone has summed up
And that somewhere is calling for you

As

Can you see
Can you feel 
Should you know what is
I know 
One day 
The world can change
The heart can lie
The heart will lie
WOULD YOU EVER KNOW NOW ....WHAT COULD I SAY 
I FEEL THAT YOUR WORDS ARE NOT WHAT YOU PRAY
STOP THIS NOW
STOP THIS NOW
You should have seen the world thats in front of you
All you think is not for me
But we are both in this same head
Show me the way
my world has sorounded you
only my world will change if you let it not be the same

Sunrises at noon

12:30 a.m.: Wednesday 

I spoke in silent awe as I watched the sun breathe its final breath,
creating a beautiful silhouette which sat parallel to me.
She laid her gentle voice upon my ears,
as she sat comfortably beside my thoughts.
We spoke of generalized topics such as hobbies that turned to addictions.
Mine: The soft caress of a woman 
who could hold my heart with out fear of dropping it.
Hers: The sudden rush of learning of a person’s person 
through their vocal discussions. 

5:45: The night stood still; 
frozen, in the course of the mental love we were about to make..

Our discussions lasted for what seemed as endless hours, 
only to be realized as a brief moment in time.
She took me to heaven through her words
And soothed my aching heart with the memories I’ve most wanted:

Her and 
I, together 
again, yet
for the first time.

9:36: Dew drops formed a symbolic ballet for the dance we’d made 
through our verbal affections during the hours past..

Never had I known such a love as the presence peacefully presented before me
though it felt as if we had met in a lifetime earlier than the current.
Her angelic appeal aroused the blackest depths of my mind, 
grasping me beautifully as the night does the moon.
I reached for the night sky, piecing together our own constellation 
with hopes that it would draw the perfect idea for her
of us, everlasting and asked if it pleased her so.
She replied: ”So long I’ve waited to meet another soul as divine as yours.
I’ve been blessed to find you through the journey I’ve traveled for so long now.
Waiting, wanting…to find a perfect balance for my scale of love
and here, we sit.”

11:25: The horizon screamed of the apparent day break 
and our eventual departure coming ahead..

Our hearts palpitated vigorously at the evident knowledge,
soon enough, our words would run out and the conversation would cease.
I expressed my fear of lonliness and failure in love 
only to find a daunting but pleasing laughter glistening before me.
She uttered the sharpest reality that "in time, lonliness and failure 
coexist with love and success....in time, the world is our playground."
With time soon running out, the most important question I never thought 
to ask: what is your name?
She rose, gracefully as a true angel does 
and with the sweetest voice, she echoed

...Faith

As I woke from a slouching position from that same park bench as before
from what seemed to be the cruelest, 
Yet most beautiful dream 
Just as the sun rose
at Noon.

Amazing You

Confusion has started to clutter my mind.
 I can't seem to understand somethings sometimes.

I used to believe that dreams come true.
But I found out that that was a lie, because I don't have you.

I used to go to sleep at night wondering where you are, who your with, and what 
your up to.
I guess those where the days and those where the things I used to do.

I miss you more and more each and everyday. 
There is so much on my mind and so much I have to say.

I wish we were together, that is my heart's desire, because the pain I feel is 
burning my heart like fire.

Please come back to me so my heart can finally heal, beacuse the love I have for 
you is now and will always be real.

Oceans Between Us

So long mistakes heart breaks these lonely times will take your place

When i think of you i cry on command and all this sadness makes

Your far away but my love grows anyway i wonder right now if you feel
The same way oceans between us but on this day here i say i love you 
I've loved you for so long. I've missed you bright my way cure my lonely day

I can be this strong girl it wont be to long....

Coursing Passion

Coursing Passion
You take me
Thy body yours
to take
Passion...Rushing...Coursing
Through Our Veins
Encapsulated by your scent
you were Heaven Sent
A Prisoner of Love
Given to me by the Stars Above
The Fateful Words Uttered
I Love You
The same come in return
Thy heart has begun to burn
Thy heart has begun to yearn

CHARIOT OF FIRE

Timeless roar of sea.......... 
Races to run........... 
Running with the sun 
This could be me 

I hear my heart beating, 
loudly in my chest 
Smooth flow 
This running show 
No time for rest 

So many miles to run 
This race not yet won 
Not in reach........... 
The dying sun, 
on this lonely beach 

Breathe this sea, 
running free 
Lonely beach, 
the running me, 
not in reach 

Running sea, 
wind lull 
Flying gull 
finding me, 

Relentless roar of sea, 
running me 
Hearts desire 
Chariot of fire 
Running sea 

The heart inside, 
the chariot of fire 
Running far and wide, 
lifts me higher 

Rhythmic roaring, 
gulls soaring, 
flying higher, 
chariots of fire 

My chariot of fire, 
sound of the sea 
Paternal flier 
The gentle me 

The running heart 
The running sea 
Takes part............... 
part of me............

the old oak

Verse 1 
There’s a house on a hill with an old oak at the side 
There’s a bridge down the way crossing a river that’s wide 
And the green hills roll forever, it’s a beautiful sight 
With a backdrop of mountains their tips covered white 

Verse 2 
There’s a house on a hill with an old oak at the side 
Where I carved out our names with a small pocket knife 
And the letters we etched in a timeless old tree 
Say that I’ll always love you long past eternity 

Chorus 
I’ll soon be with you angel, this body grows tired 
I’ll soon be with you angel for soon I’ll expire 
I’ll soon be with you angel never then will we part 
I’ll soon be with you angel be still my beating heart 

Verse 3 
There’s a house on a hill with an old oak at the side 
And a single headstone marks the place where you lie 
A chair by the side of your last resting place 
Which I sit in for hours and just stare into space 

Verse 4 
There’s a house on a hill with an old oak at the side 
Tended by a lost soul who hasn’t much time 
It won’t be long now and we’ll be one again 
There’s been so much pain since I lost you my friend 

Chorus 
I’ll soon be with you angel, this body grows tired 
I’ll soon be with you angel for soon I’ll expire 
I’ll soon be with you angel never then will we part 
I’ll soon be with you angel be still my beating heart

COMES A TIME

Comes a time, 
when things aren't working 
The way you feel, 
its not a crime 

Leave this constricting space, 
your true path, 
find your place 

This life change, 
part of your evolution 
To grow 
Find your solution 
The future so 

To run wild and free 
as far as the eye can see 
Shed your old face, 
enjoy style and grace 

Those who need it, 
need it so 
Feelings feed it, 
ready to blow 

Comes a time, 
the way you feel 
The way we all feel 
Earthly light 
To let go, 
move on to heavenly bright 

Comes a time, 
when you need more 
Than this pantomime 
To gracefully exist, 
then the  money you hold in your fist 
these things not missed 
These feelings ready to blow 
you need it so 

These heartfelt rings 
These important things 
we feel, 
with renewed zeal 

This curious time, 
felt by all, 
in their prime 
Who feel this call 

Comes a time 
To run free 
Listen to the pounding heart 
It is a new start............... 
for the new........ me 

These important things 
These heart felt rings 
This materialistic earth 
does not know....... 
what this is worth 
for they cannot face 
these things 
I embrace

Across my night

Hidden depths 
Fragrance to seep 
A tongue 
Piercing you deep 

In the heat of the night 
The heat of you 
Mystic moon 
Mystic night 
Coming too

To live......... 
So many new heights

I feel so many ways 
I know in so many heart plays 
The richest gift you see

LOVERS FLIGHT

I took your hand 
in the dark of night 
You took my heart 
Lovers flight 

Beneath the stars 
We ran... 
To the edge of somewhere 
Lovers flight 

My heart filled to burst, 
with you beside me 
Heady air 
The stars I see 

Copper trees touched the sky 
Glowing in the suns first light 
Wind sigh 
Lovers flight 

The stars faded away 
The moon lost its' glow 
Colour filled the day 

The sun rose steadily 
We cannot rest 
The miles between 
Lovers flight 

To the edge of somewhere 
Filled with copper trees 
Golden light 
Lovers flight 

A brief passage in time 
Hidden away 
Dreamt of during the night 
Lovers flight 

A brief passage of time 
The changing of suns and moons 
Stars bright 
Before fading in the light 
Lovers flight 

Beneath the stars 
We ran 
To the edge of somewhere 
My heart filled with copper glow 
The trees I came to know 

Hand in hand 
Beneath the stars

Shores of Fantasy

     At the edge of
the ocean we stand poised
Ready to be taken to faerie
     The land is perilous 
for some
      but it calls to us
as it called to Prentice 
     long ago
  We all yearn for a 
         star on our brows
To walk in mist - enshrouded meadows
     and to see flowers of unearthly beauty
growing
       A riot of joyous color
        The touch of a magical hand
will give us this chance
        In Faerie eternal spring
and lights from the north
        form the patterns we love
    The King and Queen 
of that land ate calling us
    Let's leave these mortal shores
    And hear the lovely 
sounds
    Of golden harps 
and flutes
played by ethereal beings
The golden stories 
        flow here like a river
This magic
     will change us
        FOREVER

THIS MYSTICAL YOU

This mystical you 
knows my every thought 
This slender silver thread 
that connects me to you 
These feelings read 
These feelings caught 

This mystical you 
What you do......... 
to my soul 
Opening up the power 
like a budding flower 

Instinctively knowing 
The mystical you, 
keeps it all flowing, 
in to my deepest place, 
unlocking the heart case, 
filling it too 

Slender silver thread 
winds its way through, 
the mystical you, 
from heart to head 
Flowing too 

What you do, 
petals unfold, 
colours they hold 
This mystical you 
These thoughts foretold 

My deepest place, 
my opened heart case 
Delicate silver thread 
My thoughts read, 
by mystical you

CALM

Smooth clean wall, 
cool to touch, 
I must not fall 

I walk along, 
hand touching wall, 
my heart full of song, 
Me, 
standing tall 
I know whats going on 

For calm of head am I 
I must not fall, 
this wall is not for the wary, 
light and airy, 
it's not confined at all 

Calm 
My heart full of song, 
this  cool wall I kiss, 
fear and anguish, 
I do not miss 

Stretched out arms, 
cool walls I touch 
calm 
walking through, 
no sweat on palm 

This light I walk to, 
embraces me 
casts my shadow, 
behind me, 
all behind 
song in heart so, 
I am not blind, 
for,forward I see 

Calm and light, 
must not rush, 
in to the white 
there is no crush 
in the bright

Window Sill

window sill to my heart
an ocean view to my soul
a glimpse into my serenity
as my heart beats the waves roll
as they crash onto the beach
warm and gentle breeze to lull me to sleep
a simple guiltless pleasure
to sample life's little treasures

A GIFT OF LOVE

Great beauty can be seen
Always from within
I tell you this…
As I searched
For all things
Deep in my heart
For all meanings

I felt its’ warmth within
Like the sun
Playing in a field of buttercups
Tingling on my skin

I looked above
Seeing a castle amongst the trees
How rich the grass
That I played in
How soft the breeze
This is the gift of love

Every living thing
Could feel love
You could not hide
Its’ colour
Its’ meaning

I touched a tree
Looked upwards amongst its’ mighty boughs
To the sky
It reached forever
Lifting me

Such beauty that I saw
In its’ heart
That I felt in me
This is the gift of love

Billowing clouds rushed by
The trees swayed
My heart changed forever
In the rich grass that I played
In the sky
Where I flew

That a search must begin
In a heart
In a sun
From within

Great beauty was seen
Not, in the forest
Not, in a field of buttercups
Not, in grass, rich and green
Not, in skies, so blue
In the heart
The heart of you

A gift of love
Always from within
I tell you this
To start your search
To begin
With you

RISE

Rise
When a heart is heavy
The pain you cannot bear
Lift your eyes
I am there

Rise
When you feel all is gone
You feel desolation
Lift your eyes
It has only begun

Rise
When the tears you shed
Tore you apart
Lift your eyes
Look at me instead

Rise
When you feel angry
In a world of hateful things
Lift your eyes
Feel my tranquillity

Rise
When it is death you mourn
In your grief
Lift your eyes
You are reborn

Rise
When your heart is filled with joy
The beauty you can see
Lift your eyes
It is only me

Rise
For the love inside
Those loving ways
Lift your eyes
I cannot be denied

Rise
For, I made you
In my image
Lift your eyes
I have always loved you

Prices and Cost

We had a little ice age
Some generations back
Harvests didn’t happen
And people died of lack
Trees grew very slowly
Those that didn’t die
Things like acorn porridge
Kept some folk alive
Others learned to reap the tide
And seagulls learned to hide
Several lifetimes later
Some goodness came from this
Those trees that made it
Through those years
Met  Stradavarius
And the density of  struggle
Echoed through a violin
There's a lesson in there somewhere
Let the symphony
Begin

I SAW A GIRL

I saw a girl standing there.... 
She looked at me.... 
My heart, laid bare 
What she could see 

In her eyes.... 
Told me everything 
Everything I needed to know 
Restless sighs 
I think she wanted me so 

What to do? 
Where to start? 
If I only knew, 
the quiet murmurings in my heart 

I saw a girl, 
with golden hair 
Standing there, 
with my heart in her eyes 
Her eyes, deep in my heart 

The quiet murmurings of my heart 
She looked at me 
My heart fell at her feet 
She picked me up you see... 
Kissed me with her eyes... 
and walked away free....

Keeps Me Sangin'

Jesus keeps me sangin'-!

I sing cause I'm happy, my heart's melody
I cause I'm free, yes, I know that I am free indeed
His eye's on the sparrow; I know He watches me
And that keeps me sangin'
He keeps me sangin'
Jesus keeps me sangin'-!  (Chorus)

I thought that I would never find someone so patient and so kind
Who had love that was just for me
Until Jesus came my way, He still sticks close to me today
So unconditionally

(Bridge 1)
He's always with me, never leaves nor forsakes me
And Jesus is the one thing my heart is sure of
So I-
(Chorus)

Jesus is my Lord and God and His love is shed abroad
In my heart I do believe
And with my mouth I do confess and I am saved, His righteousness
Is so heavenly

(Bridge 2)
He forgives and forgets all my sins and my debts
And Jesus is the one thing that my heart is sure of
So I-
(Chorus)

Now I need, and you need, and we all need His kind of love (2x's)
 
He forgives and forgets all my sins and my debts
And Jesus is the one thing my heart is sure of

So I- sing cause I'm happy, my heart's melody
I cause I'm free, yes, I know that I am free indeed
His eye's on the sparrow; I know He watches me
And that keeps me sangin'
He keeps me sangin'
Jesus keeps me sangin'-!  (Chorus)

I sing for joy inside my soul
Cause Jesus Christ has made me whole
His joy's my strength that makes me glad
And He's the best love I've ever had

(Fade with the Chorus)

A WOKEN HEART

Such things remain unseen 
They lie deep in my heart 
So deep 
You cannot find, 
find what I mean 

Such things, 
have no colour 
They lie behind a darkened door 
This is what sorrow is for 

Such things remain unseen 
They lie deep in my heart 
So deep 
You cannot find, 
find where I have been 

For you to see, 
a woken heart 
Coming from me 

A woken heart 
A woken dream 
I felt the same in you 
It must have been true

THIS SENTIMENTAL SEASON

When warm and gentle winds
flutter and lull the lustruous lilacs
so discontent of the primroses,
the drooping willows
deepen in their sorrows,
and as in an angelic apparition:
there comes into view
a friendly ballerina dressed in blue
to perform an ardent ballet
in her red dancing shoes that match
her golden,glazing barrette...
unlikely a hand-manipulated marionette!

Unpretentious and pretty ballerina,
invent another unrealistic aurora...
like the one that appears in the northern sky,
to make believe that is still daytime:
to attune your mood to a symphonic music
that can be enjoyed by us! 

When the blue-jays refuse to sing,
use your rhythmic swing
to overwhelm us with sheer delight;
this sentimental season 
repletes with amazing surprises:
to render and choose,
to keep in our thoughts and heart
the purpose of true reason!

Irresistible and elegant ballerina,
perform a dance rarely seen by critics...
be of a joyful spirit without nostalgia,
be remarkable in your gestures and steps;
a daisy opens its petals at sunrise,
invulnerable joy carries you to crimson skies...
to increase your strenght and make you shine
more than the radiant sun above the horizon...

ECHOES

My previous words, 
I have spoken 
return to me like birds 
strange how this has awoken 

For these kind words never die, 
but return to fly 
For good things we say 
are like birds at play 

Kind words will always exist, 
unlike shouting and use of fist 

kind words never die, 
they will return to fly 

These words echo, 
rebound if you will 
for good words never go 
they never maim or kill, 
always they flow 

these echoes, 
sound out your heart 
and beat like a drum, 
many good words to come 

for words never die, 
for the good ones fly 
bad ones decay, 
brought up another day 
swear and curse 
all for the worse 

the good words you hold in your heart and hand, 
release these words 
for they are your golden birds, 
let them populate the land, 
let them go 
for they will  return as an echo 

for golden words 
never die, 
but always rebound, 
as words of golden, 
let them fly, 
let them flow 
hear their sound

The Candle

The night was creeping on the ground
She crept and did not make a sound
Until she reached the tree
She covered it and crept again
Along the grass beside the wall
I heard the rustle of her shawl
As she threw blackness everywhere
Upon the sky and ground and air
And in the room where I was hidden
But no matter what she did
To everything that was without
She could not put my candle out
So I stared at the night
And she stared back solemnly at me.

THE SECRET SMILE

The secret smile 
The secret glow 
I love it so 
Stay a while 

The secret smile tells all 
The enchantment it can hold 
Such golden gift .....cannot fold 
The secret smile,

I love the secret smile, 
for the eyes smile too 
Golden delight, 
golden view 
The smile,the light 
Stay a while 

Such allure, 
soft green eyes, 
secret smile, 
the only cure 

All I have forsaken, 
lost love taken, 
lonely yearning 
All the while , 
my heart turning, 
for a secret smile............... 

Secret smile,

My needs, sated 
Hush,stay a while 
Let me enjoy

Secret smile,

my heart won 
This girl, 
sweet beautiful pearl 
I will go the last mile

Water, 
Over river stone 
Found its' way in to my heart 
Melody river

Flowing through your heart

Take me 
In to your heart 
Let me fall 

In a mystic way 
A cold pale moon 
Melody river 
Water over stone 
Washed over me 
Took me away 

My love to flow 
Like a melody 
Like a river

Rock solid

        Rock solid 

    your rock solid...
  you  block all emotion. 
You've learned that love is something that can tear a person and leave them open. 
You Won't let anyone get too close. 
So many holes have been blown into your heart that even the bullet proof 
protection you put up doesn't work. 
So here I come along thinking every things fine...
 at first I didn't notice the wounds, why couldn't I read it in your eyes? 
I had a little crush on you and my friend help me get you to realize.
 It was an earth moving experience when we first started this secret.
 Maybe if I was physic I could have seen the future and knew that it wouldn't last.
 Maybe if I Knew that I would be on my knees...
If I knew that your words or promises wouldn't mean anything
If I knew that it would hurt this bad.
I could have avoided this collision but I was dumb
  I couldn't recognize the wall that was in front of me until I bumped my head.
 It shocked the hell out of me.
 Out of no where my teeth and heart were being split.
 This is not how this was supposed to happen
. No tears ever fell from my eyes...
 I guess a little of your rock solidness rubbed off on me.
 But even now my forehead still hurts.
 Even now I wish I could know the secrets that hide behind that wall. 
Your rock solid. When I look at your face I see no emotion, no expression.
 No truth behind your eyes. All I see is blankness. Like you've never met me before.
 Like you never cared at all. Don't you realize how much that hurts?
    But your rock solid and I should have known that you were void 
    of feeling... But that's why we couldn't work cause i'm not.

My Love For You

Every time I think about you it seems my heart fades away.
It keeps getting worse to where the pain is here to stay.
I’m afraid what will happen if I try and change,
It might go wrong and put us out of range.
I love you baby with all my heart 
And I know we’ll never fall apart.
I love you so much.
I just want you to know 
I’ll send in to you wrapped in a bow.

TEN THOUSAND MILES OF SEA

Can a fair wind blow
across ten thousand miles
of beautiful sea?

Can a fair wind blow?
To a maiden
Whose heart I have come to know

A starlit passage
Ever onwards
Through the night
Soft chuckle of sea
The water of love
Taking me

Moons , can rise
Suns too
Days of golden beauty
Across ten thousand miles of sea

Can a fair wind blow
Across ten thousand miles
Of a travelling heart so

I searched for you
In a sky
As limitless
As my love for you

Ten thousand miles of sea
In the blink of an eye
How far have I travelled
Looking for you
You lay in my heart
Always, you see

Pop! Goes The Weasel

Pop!  Goes the weasel...
When he shot...
The guy behind the easel...
And stole his silly paintings...
All about there were faintings...
He ran from the chasing cops,
And made but few stops...
One for a beer...
One for some schnapps...
Guess he got a little wasted...
As he dropped the art
He had hardly tasted...
Now one wine,
and he was wasted...
Grabbed by the cops...
He was soon pasted...
With crime charges 
He soon embrace'd
Cause he was tired of art theft,
And he was color blind, and with no sense of depth...

WAS A TIME...

Was a time.. 
When love was all  true 
Gentleness too 

A red sighing sun 
Sinking below 
The depths of my heart 
The day is done 

Was a time.. 
you felt it too 
in the depths of my heart 
Emotion too 

A star, 
faded blue 
Replaced a red sighing sun 
Flickering fire 
You knew it too 

Stars and suns, 
fade away 
Night and day 
Love endures 
Gentleness too 

You are my sun 
You are my star 
My flickering fire 
Gentle light 
Gentle night 
The day is done

YOUR BEATING HEART

You cannot hear a footfall, 
in a forest 
Deepening silence 
Deepening night 

I could feel its' heartbeat 
Through my capped hands 
Jewelled feathers, silent and still, 
in the forest lands 

You cannot hear footfalls, 
in the forest 
Buried in the rustle of the night 
Night calls 

I lie awake... 
Waiting for you 
You cannot hear a footfall, 
in the forest 

I felt your beating heart, 
through my body 
Jewelled eyes, bright 
In the forest of the night 

You cannot hear a footfall, 
in the forest of the night 
I hear your beating heart 
jewelled eyes, burning bright 

My body can hear... 
Your heart beating 
In the forest of the night 
The moon... 
glowing in glorious light 

In the forest , 
footfall in the night 
Wildly beating heart 
Eyes, jewelled and bright

Rose, Precious

To my precious Rose 
To what do I owe thee
To someone special 
To look inside of me 
And you were right
It's what's inside that counts 
Now my dear rose 
to what might I amount 
Personality shed the truest feelings 
Sometimes tears are emotion killers 
But now my dear rose 
it seems your petals need healing 
And I could never turn my back on you 
Cause you never once 
Pretended to act what's true 
If it is love you see 
Then it is love in me 
And never again 
From your precious face 
Do I want to see a tear fall free 
Cause I know 
In my precious rose 
A tender heart there'll always be 
And sometimes beauty kills 
But from you 
My heart is what beauty steals 
Though we face temptation 
I only bring what's real 
And sometimes what's deep 
Is so hard to feel 
But for my precious rose 
No one else knows
But for you my heart grows

HEARTSTONE

For days you hunt but nothing found, 
for the heart stone to reveal its' self, 
buried deep in shadowy ground 

This shadowy land that I walk, 
sometimes alone 
for I am the gatherer of the heart stone 

The heart stone, 
find its' glow, 
for it will surely show 
its' self to the seeker, 
for if it lies in shadowy room 
it grows weaker 

The heart stone 
does not like being alone, 
alone in shadow, 
hidden so 

The heart stone 
needs to be found, 
its' light displayed 
for living in gloom 
causes its' light to fade 
in shadowy room 

The gatherer will look 
in every shadowy place, 
seek out and reach, 
the heart stone, 
find its' place 

For it is bound 
in shadowy room 
all alone, 
waiting to be found, 
by the gatherer of the stone 

The gatherer of the stone 
will never tire, 
searching the gloom 
for the jewel of hidden fire, 
that lights up the room 

For the stone is in our shadowy place 
bring it forth to show its' face, 
throw off darkened room 
and let the heart stone bloom

A DAUGHTER OF LIGHT

Born under a starry night.... 
This I must tell.. 
The night, the star fell.......... 
Sent a daughter of light 

This clear night....... 
she came as a gift...... 
you see.... 
A daughter of light, 
in a world of night 
It was meant to be 

The heart was right, 
when that star fell 
It sent a daughter of light 
These thoughts dwell 

Only love can bring......... 
a girlchild..... 
on a night.... 
so calm, 
so mild........ 
Bathed in starlight, 
her heart did sing 

When stars fall, 
on clear nights 
Daughter of lights, 
come into the world 
Bringing their love unfurled 

A beautiful and rare event......... 
When a star can fall 
What a star sent, 
love unfurled, 
on a clear night 
A daughter of light,

What is Music?

A beautiful melodic chance to enhance the ear
so sincere you shed a tear so severe you back it up like a domineer
but music is not just what you can hear
it sums up all of beauty, all art in motion
like the sound of the weltering waves of an ocean
an enticing novel with an addicting notion
like the sway of a woman's walk showing so much emotion
music is art-art is beauty-music is anything you look at to admire
exagerate goals to aspire, a passionate kiss to look up to eyes of fire
a soul mate's touch to inspire
as two become one in the best way to perspire, music
to hear, to touch, a sight an infamous might, music
the canarous dance of a butterfly when their wings dawdle
ketchup's lingering trip down the bottle
to your beautiful body i can't wait to fondle
your face to your utter essence, music in my life
making me smile in times of strife
keeping me at the end of my wits, sharper than a knife
you are music, my words are music, music all around
with each touch it glistens 
so remember with music
you must do much more than listen

Above Me

There's no heaven above me 
And the world's getting mighty ugly 
I need a good heart to come and hug me 
Father the world's getting ugly
And it seems there's no heaven above me
As I sit starring at the wall 
From the sky, I watch the stars fall
Given this talent, this oddly balance 
I never had a mother or father 
Who brought into this world and why bother? 
Death being a made sacrifice 
Who wants to live twice in this life? 
Tidal waves, mud slides, and desperate housewives 
Baby girl go lay your thoughts down and get some rest 
Let go of your stress & lay your head across my chest 
Just let me burn, calm at sea 
Just read my palms and let me be, cant you see 
There's no heaven above me 
And the world's getting mighty ugly 
Needs a good heart to come and hug me 
Father the world's getting ugly
And it seems there's no heaven above me
Granted that we are promised, "A second coming" 
Blown trumpets, Reckoning of angels humming 
Now maybe time won't consume my soul
Pneumonia tunes my cold 
My shoulders going global
Yet when my tears got heavy, I never once faltered 
Right beside me, now I'm cursed at the alter 
Webster define me love
In my heart, something warm tells me to look above
My lord, you be with those acquaintance, my friends 
Cause tomorrow looking foggy thru this lenses
And I miss being a kid 
But how can I reminisce on the things I never did
The storms getting closer
Maybe I'll see the Rapture, through a holster 
I put my life on that poster, piss on it & let it burn 
No worry, It's none of your concern 
Still, there’s no heaven above me 
And the world's getting mighty ugly 
Needs a good heart to come and hug me 
Father the world's getting ugly
And it seems there's no heaven above me

EVEN part one

There’s a score to be settled, there’s revenge to be had,
And it’s best to not f  k with a woman this mad.
But like always, you push me, you push me too far,
So now I’ll discard you like the trash that you are.

Did you think I’d forgive you after all of your lies?
Did you really believe me? Trust my loving disguise? 
Are you really so stupid that you thought that I could,
Or are you so arrogant to think that I would?

A liar, a cheater, a thief and crook,
Too late to give back my soul that you took.
So here I am lover, with a hole in my chest,
And I’ve planned to destroy you, so prepare for my best.

Now that you love me, and it’s me who you need,
I wonder how badly I can make your heart bleed.
My anger stays patient, behind this empty smile,
But I am the judge and you will soon stand my trial.

I’ve not been so faithful, who knew I could be so bad?
And instead of feeling guilty it’s the most fun I’ve ever had.
The cheating wasn’t the thrill, it was the coming home to you,
Knowing what I just did, and then giving it to you too.

I don’t know when I became so dirty, I really have no shame,
But you made up the rules, I’m just playing your game.
At first I had to get even, but soon I had upped you one,
And before I could even stop it, Vendetta was on the run.

Every night I come home to you, I look you in the eyes,
I speak of love and life, and fill your head with lies.
Every night when I make love to you, I want you to know,
But I keep my secrets deep inside, and let your feelings grow.

Karma has been waiting to kick your a s for quite awhile,
Anticipation of your broken heart really makes me smile,
Because very soon my love, the full attack is on,
And everything you think is true will very much be gone.

So you can find another sucker to grow old with and lie,
And I can be the one you think of til you die.
The one that got away, the one who broke your heart,
The one who took your house of cards, and tore that s  t apart.

THE WINGS OF THE HEART

We are earthly bound 
for a time... 
Only in our bodies 
Not in the  mind 
Not in the heart 

To climb and see... 
The wings of the heart 
All that lies before me 

Feathers of gold, 
on a portrait of blue 
This is me 
This can be you 

Clouds of white, 
from a portrait of blue 
Feathers of gold... 
Carry me too 

In the wings of the heart

EAGLE FLIGHT

cascading light 
washing over me 
on sunlit wings 

fierce golden glow 
feather edged sundancer 

sun light in your heart 

goose pimples of pleasure 
sun trickling drops of pure gold light 
dapple on me 

sunbreathing,basking sunshine 
golden wings soar 
rush of warm wind, 
blinding white light 

blue silence 
calm of mind 
flex of golden wing 
on sunlit clouds of white 

pure joy of golden light 
pure joy golden flight 

feather of mind 
feather of heart 

sunlit heart 

breathe me 
soft golden journey 
my journey

HEARTSTONE

For days you hunt but nothing found,
for the heart stone to reveal its' self,
buried deep in shadowy ground

This shadowy land that I walk,
sometimes alone
for I am the gatherer of the heart stone

The heart stone,
find its' glow,
for it will surely show
its' self to the seeker,
for if it lies in shadowy room
it grows weaker

The heart stone
does not like being alone,
alone in shadow,
hidden so

The heart stone
needs to be found,
its' light displayed
for living in gloom
causes its' light to fade
in shadowy room

The gatherer will look
in every shadowy place,
seek out and reach,
the heart stone,
find its' place

For it is bound
in shadowy room
all alone,
waiting to be found,
by the gatherer of the stone

The gatherer of the stone
will never tire,
searching the gloom
for the jewel of hidden fire,
that lights up the room

For the stone is in our shadowy place
bring it forth to show its' face,
throw off darkened room
and let the heart stone bloom

THE HARDEST

THE HARDEST 

I looked for you 
Today 
Unattainable 
What could you see 
If I could only let it be 

I cannot have 
I cannot hold 
Beauty untold 
My heart to fold 


It is so hard 
Not to cry 
What is within ones' own grasp 
A single step 
The hardest 
Not to cry 
If not... 
Why? 

I cannot have 
I cannot hold 
Beauty untold 
My heart to fold 

Such angst 
Fighting through 
I am here 
Tears too 

I cannot have 
I cannot hold 
Beauty untold 
My heart to fold 

When you were with me 
Lying quietly 
All I could think... 

I cannot have 
I cannot hold 
Beauty untold 
My heart to fold

THE WATER OF LOVE

Deep within a mountain 
At it's heart 
A spring flowed 
From it, love 
Glowed 

Water is the source of everything 
Love, life 
Birdsong 
Trees 
An eagles' golden wing 

A gemstone 
Filled with love, 
began in a spring 
A Heartstone 
The water of love 
Flowed 
Such light 
Glowed 

Heartstone mountain 
Welling deep 
In its' heart 
Love to seep 

Keep the love 
Keep the faith 
A mountain spring 
Love, life 
Can give you everything 

The water of love 
Touched you 
Touched me 
For in the heart 
Welling forth 
Flowing you see 
There is no other way 
What was always known 
A living Heartstone 
Within you 
Within me

IN A LAND OF MIST AND MAGIC PART I

When all around, 
is dark and thick with mist 
When an eagles' feathers, glow brighter 
Your heart grows lighter 
You realise what you have missed 

A magnificent castle 
Sculptured in stone 
That lay in your heart 
Hidden from view 
Awoken 
You cannot hide 
Beauty, cannot be denied 
The love too... 
For you are never alone 

In a land of mist and magic 
Kings and Queens can play 
Prince and Princesses 
Faeries too 
Another Heartstone way 
All these things belong to you... 

Listen to your heart 
Read the book of The Wise Ways 
Especially the truth book 
Fill your heart with gossamer wings 
A pink dawn, ablaze 
Take another look 
Find these wonderful things

Starting Over Again

Whatever happened to the time we used to spend
Whatever happened to my long and faithful friend
And not matter how my heart will seem to mend
I'm tired of starting all over and over again
Whatever happened to the love that we were in 
Whatever happened to the dreams that we'd begin
And no matter how my life will seem to mend
I'm tired of starting all over and over again	(Chorus)

I see the signs of yesterday yet I won't assume
Because I know what that will make of me and you
But I see the same old patterns every week and weekend
There's not a change so I have a hard time believin'
Yet I don't want to judge the future looking at our past
But if I can't depend on you then how can we ever last
I just can't deal with going through the same old thing
And your actions speak so loud you've left me wondering 

(Chorus)

If you're dedicated to me give me more of your time
Than you give to any other, let them know that you're mine
If you're committed to me, be faithful, kind and true
And remember you said you love me the way I love you
So history won't repeat itself you'll do whatever it takes
By always saying what you mean, doing all that you say
To make us work, keep our dreams, here's one last chance
For you to put your love in action and give a little romance

(Bridge)

Cause every man will proclaim his unfailing love
But what girl can find a faithful man she can trust
She just can't deal with going through the same old thing
And your actions speak so loud you've left her wondering 

Whatever happened to the time we used to spend
Whatever happened to my long and faithful friend
And not matter how my heart will seem to mend
I'm tired of starting all over and over again
Whatever happened to the love that we were in 
Whatever happened to the dreams that we'd begin
And no matter how my life will seem to mend
I'm tired of starting all over and over again	(Chorus)

SECRET PLACE

A place you can go 
when hurt breaks you so 

Retreat within,find the key 
for there are many keys 
to the secret place 

Key for hurt and pain 
Key for imagination 
Key for magical lands 

The secret place, 
the key ,the door, 
only you know what its for 

Go within your self and explore, 
you are the keeper, 
you know where to go, 
to the door where gentleness will flow 

The secret place 

Your door, many keys 

Key to unlock your heart 
Key to love again 
Key to experience loss and pain 
Key to live and breathe again 

Many keys you can hold, 
but only one door, 
you decide,not told, 
The key you want and what its for 

Dont carry too many keys, 
for the keys are heavy in hand 
and heavy in heart 

The key of pain and loss, 
the heaviest of all 

The key of happiness, 
delicate and fine, 
made with pure golden sunshine 

Carry this key to your secret place 
the best key of all 

The key of love does'nt have a key 
merely warmth 
for this door doesn't need a key 
for there is no door to love 

Love is all around, 
not in one secret place, 
but in all of us, 
wells from within, 
flowing from the heart 

the secret place

Valentine 07

Today is a day of wonderment
as I sit and wonder and even ponder
of the many ways in which my love has grown fonder
on a day like today the blues are chased away
as cherubs come out to frolic and play
and as my love grows I keep her close at bay
for a mile away is to far away
even and foot or even an inch
for this gift she shall receive
I am sure is a clinch
of that I am sure the simpleness is so pure
an awe will be heard from coast to coast
as we seal yet another valentine's with 
a clink of the wine glasses in toast.

HEART CHEST

I pull open a drawer in my heart, 
for it takes physical will to do so 
to reach for the feeling inside 

Some drawers are small, 
some big 

For what it contains 

Small drawers for hurt and meanness 
big drawers for love and patience. 
You decide on the drawers you will hold 

How many you want,you decide. 
The drawers open and close, 
friends and foes 
can live side by side, 
in the drawers of the heart 

The person you let in 
can open these drawers. 
The one you love never opens 
drawers of jealousy and hate. 

They never open them even though, 
they know its there, 
and they know it so 

The person you despise 
can open the drawers of hate and lies. 
Resist with all your might, 
keep them tight, 
for you must rise 

The heart of drawers, 
can draw your heart in 
pull out a feeling,mood 
and a sigh 

The drawers are meant to be opened, 
some willingly,some not 
for not to open drawers 
will allow feelings to rot 

Open and close, 
the feelings can grow, 
from the high 
to the low 

It will tell you what's best, 
in the drawers of the chest 

For the heart does know, 
of the open and close 
of which you decide 
of the feelings inside

WITH THE PRETTIEST EYES

My anguish............ 
Burned...... 
Burned deep 
The black heart to vanquish 
No pleasure to keep 

There is a girl out there.......... 
That feels it too.......... 
With a heart, 
beating through 

A girl..... 
With the prettiest eyes 
A single moment.......... 
Filled with light......... 
When she looked at me 
Heaven sent 
Heavenly sighs 

When you connect........ 
A moment in time.......... 
The eyes reflect........... 
A moment in light............ 
The heart squeezed.......... 
The moment seized......... 

A girl........... 
With the prettiest eyes 
Filled me with light 
My black heart vanquished 
Filled me with sighs 
What I wished... 
A moment.............. 
In her sight

A True Love Story

Not long ago this was a dream;
There was no plan at all.
But the dream became reality
and my heart began to fall.

Not long ago my heart gave up
on something that did not exist.
But you came marching into my life
and my heart could not resist.

You have a way of touching my heart
by a simple hold of my hand.
And the feeling I get when you kiss me 
makes it hard to stand.

I can't describe what I feel inside 
when we catch eachother's eye;
When you hold me in your arms
and I let out a simple sigh.

There's something so great about you
that fills that hole in my heart.
Something so strong and sticky
that will never let us part.

Each night I have I kneel and pray,
thanking the Lord above;
For sending me an angel like you
a man so perfect to love.

This love will last a life time;
It was matched in the eyes of God.
And because he's so strong and powerful
we know this love's no fraud.

So, even though our hearts may fall
and roads may twist and bend,
I can promise you a love like this
will never truly end .

GOLDEN HEART

I searched for days......... 
In the places dear to my heart 
Some things can never be found, 
when you are in a daze 

If you look deep........ 
The thoughts and feelings you can reap 
You can but try........... 
To find the place........ 
Dear to you, 
if you look deep and true 

Such things, 
so small to find 
All of them ,in your mind 
All have meanings 

I searched for that glowing, 
that people have inside 
That knowing.......... 
they cannot hide 

the colour is there, 
like a piercing dart 
a colour so rare............. 
The golden heart 

A golden heart, 
wreathed in love 
A place dear to me 
What I found, 
what you can see 
What you can see in me 
Love can be....... 
If you let it be found

HEAVEN IS THE PLACE

Heaven is the place, 
where everyone, 
knows your face 

Gentle and kind........ 
Are the ways 
The ways you must find 

If kindness were a flower....... 
then the heart is a meadow 
Purple and blue 
Soft pinks too....... 
All for you 

If gentleness were an ocean.......... 
Then the soul is the boat 
Blue and green 
Idyllic emotion...... 
Sailing serene 

If love were a colour......... 
Then the heart is pure gold 
Shining through 
Unspoiled......... 
For you to hold 

If giving was a stream.... 
Then the heart is a waterfall 
Bubbling flow....... 
For those who know 
For those who hear it's call 

Heaven is the place....... 
Where everyone 
knows your face 
Humility and grace 
Garlanded like lace 

If forgiving was a grain of sand......... 
Then the heart is a mountain 
A rock to which........... 
all will flock 

If patience wasa slender reed............... 
Then the heart is a mighty tree 
These qualities you need 
You see....... 
In heaven............... 
The place to be

MYSTERIES OF THE HEART

Shadows, flew 
across my heart 
Dark too 

Such dark beauty 
Such mystery 
Shadows too, 
in the heart 

Amidst the shadows 
A light grew 
A spark... 
A rose... 
That was me 

Spilling out 
Petals falling 
Colour calling, 
I heard it shout 

To travel 
so far... 
Mysteries of the heart 
Such dark beauty, 
becoming light 

The smokiness within 
The battle of light 
The battle of dark 
A curious whim 
A curious spark 

Light and shadows, 
flew across my heart 
Such beautiful things 
Cannot rest in the 
mysteries of the heart

This bridge I build 
I build to last 
Not of stone or metal 
Deep inside 
Down past 
Thoughts I have willed 

This bridge of many spans

Walk with me.........

The bridge can be broken 
By thoughts of despair 
By harsh words spoken 

This bridge,

Relentless march through 
Join me too 
If you want too 
What you can be 
Let us start 

So many bridges to build,

made with thoughts willed 

This bridge I have built 
Will not wilt 
For...together 
It will last 
Deep inside 
Down past 

This bridge built for you 
Stronger than stone 
Built on love and affection 
More than flesh and bone 

Bridge running through,

Open up 
Walk with me too.......

This bridge ............ 
Connecting us 
Cornerstone and truss 
Walk with me, 
if you want to

EROSION OF SPIRIT

Mighty eagle 
light of heart 
full of love 
losing a feather a day 
earthly bound 

not allowed to move, 
make a sound 

paralyzing nothingness 
good heart withering 

too weak to break those 
mental and physical chains 

duty and honour 
hold this eagle 

not allowed to move,

autumn coming 
stark winter calling 

soon no feathers to fly 
good heart dry 

what to do?to fly? 
gather and store glorious plumage 
for the time to come 

when mission is done 
to gather feathers so carefully stored 
in my secret place 

to leap out with movement and sound 
to soar sky bound 
with grace 

no physical release so joyous then being free 
and all because.....I began to see

PRELUDE

Streams of light, 
fell on me 
I stayed awhile 
A bubbling brook 
Grassy knoll 
Shady tree 

To escape 
Find something new 
How it matters to you 
For in the heart 
It cannot lie, 
for it is true 

To a better time 
long ago... 
When deeds of valour 
Lost beliefs, 
meant something so 

Magical times, 
to fill the air 
Fill my heart 
What I want to share 

For this is my heart 
Changing seasons 
Faeries too 
I hope that it means something to you 

In our hearts 
We have castles 
Nature 
Love too 

We cannot lose sight, 
of pure loving ways 
Of wind 
Kings and queens 
Faeries flight 

This is my heartstone

A World To Ponder

As I lay, the world around me alive yet hushed, time rests still to let the mind 
catch up with it. A night sky with one sea of clouds and the sun reflecting 
monsters created by accident lays still. While these beautiful monsters, in their 
size, kill the grass they stand on, their beauty takes away breath from all living 
things. Soon the sun will cease to shine on the melancholy above us. The waters 
will recede back into the horizon as the sun wakes up to shine on flowers 
abroad ‘till it is bored of sitting in these flowers and goes off to explore all the 
other wondrous designs once shown in Eden upon soft pedals of gentle, yet 
plagued life.
	Songs of sorrow come from the ones left in the presence of one 
mightier than the sun until the beautiful monster comes again with his deadly 
stomp.
Watching, wandering, and wondering, the sun asks, “How is this death so 
glorified. Do none wish to grow, or do they confuse north and south?”

The fish calm, the waves roar to the horizon in understanding. As this reality 
becomes my fantasy-I live in this world that men before me have created.

IN A LAND OF MIST AND MAGIC PART II

When all around is dark and thick with mist 
When an eagles' feather glow brighter 
Your heart grows lighter 
For you realize what you have missed 

When a castle opens its' heart to you 
Amidst the whispering trees 
What lies in your self 
What you want to be 
Let your self go 
Be true 

The castle , filled with love and colour 
The flowers began to bloom 
Holly glowed 
Faeries danced 
Sweet song filled every room 

A new season took hold during the night 
For a summer queen, 
rich green leaves grew 
The air glowed with sunbright

Indy Jones

He’s just a dog, but I love him so,
Truer than any man I know.
Faithful in his love for me,
Silly, happy and worry-free.
Toilet water brings him joy,
Bliss sounds like a squeaky toy.
Bear-size paws and a nose so cold,
And he tries so hard to not be bold!
His true addiction is to play,
He’ll fetch your heart within a day.
Indy Jones is my favorite friend,
He will stand beside me till the end.
He knows just how to heal my pain,
With just one look my tears refrain.
A gentle giant, a happy soul,
With puppy eyes, my heart he stole.

YOUR BROKEN FLOWER

Your unlockable heart 
I must try 
Find your golden key 
I must try you see 
I cannot let it lie 

Your broken flower 
Dreams gone sour 
The things you said before, 
feels so raw 

Ever get the feeling 
you are alone, 
thoughts reeling, 
whispered moan 

Your broken flower, 
each petal a thought 
Scattered trail 
to the ivory tower 
My heart caught 

Your broken flower, 
to mend 
Gather all your petals, 
you have the power, 
you have a friend 

Broken flower, 
all forlorn 
Leave these thorns, 
let us talk until dawn 

I have the golden key, 
to your ivory tower, 
to unlock your flower 

This golden key I dream, 
in delicate golden streams 
My love grows by the hour, 
to unlock broken flower 

For the key, 
bursts forth new petals,

The colour you give to me 
richer than any precious metal 

This unlockable heart, 
broken flower 
Has a key, 
this key is me 
Each petal, 
more valuable than any precious metal 

The rich scent 
of your flower 
leaves me spent 
golden key 
that is me 
will heal

ON AN EAGLES' WINGS

On an eagles' wings 
I climbed high 
Saw many things 
Saw me 
Oh my! 

A golden feather,

Take it

On an eagles' wings 
Golden light

So true

Knew it to be true

A MEMORY

How precious these things.... 
Truth be told... 
Money nor gold, 
but memories we hold 
For, neither money nor gold, 
can buy a memory 
Truth be told 

How sweet the moment... 
Holding your first born child 
Forever etched 
Heaven sent 

Angst and pain... 
A passing... 
A joy... 
The memories of youth... 
The falling rain... 
Birth of a boy.... 

Money cannot buy.... 
The memories... 
Of our lives passing by 

Times go by... 
Loved ones die 
Yet a memory... 
Will stay... 
Music too 
Filling the heart 
Affecting you 

This time is now passed 
It cannot be... 
But a distant memory 
You want it to last 
It cannot be 

I have in my heart 
So much... 
So full 
I feel it will spill 
Like my tears 
But the time is passed 
How I wish I could it last 

I have in my heart 
My memories... 
Truth be told, 
money nor gold 
Can buy 
Ever... 
These things I hold 

You may say such things have gone 
This is not so.... 
For, they live in my heart 
They have never gone away 

Such a burden to carry 
Such things... 
It is what makes me 
Who I am

HEART OF A STORM

Thunder tore apart the air... 
Shards of rock split... 
Lightning flashed across the sky 
The clouds ,all lit 
The wind ,howling by 

The black clouds scudded across, 
driven by the wind before them 
The lightning... 
Like an angry whip 
Cracked and burned 
Through the night 
Like a lover spurned 
Like a lover lost 

The rock split 
The air burned 
The lightning twisted and turned 
An angry light .. 
Flickered here 
Flickered there 
Like a lover spurned 

The lightning struck here 
The lightning struck there 
Shards of rock filled the air 
Monstrous black clouds passed through, 
in an angry heart too 
For, it burned... 
Like a lover spurned 

The black clouds 
Passed through 
Leaving a pale moon, 
whose light fell on me too 

All this in my heart too... 
all churned, 
where the lightning burned, 
through and through 
The angry light, 
Extinguished... 
Replaced by a pale moon, 
that fell on me 

The blood flowed 
Deep rich red, 
in a storm 
The lightning... 
The light that bled 
In a heart bestowed 

Storms abate.... 
The one in my heart 
Still aches.... 
With the storms I make

RISE

Rise
When a heart is heavy
The pain you cannot bear
Lift your eyes
I am there

Rise
When you feel all is gone
You feel desolation
Lift your eyes
It has only begun

Rise
When the tears you shed
Tore you apart
Lift your eyes
Look at me instead

Rise
When you feel angry
In a world of hateful things
Lift your eyes
Feel my tranquillity

Rise
When it is death you mourn
In your grief
Lift your eyes
You are reborn

Rise
When your heart is filled with joy
The beauty you can see
Lift your eyes
It is only me

Rise
For the love inside
Those loving ways
Lift your eyes
I cannot be denied

Rise
For, I made you
In my image
Lift your eyes
I have always loved you

EVERY HEART BELONGS TO A COUNTRY...

Every heart belongs a Country...
big or small,  with or without prosperity;
a beloved and cherished Country
has its precious name
on each heart loving freedom!

It may have a beautiful ocean or sea,
breathtaking mountains so misty,
or a desert that can never flourish;
it may have raging rivers,
wild forests with sparkling waterfalls...
wealthy or unwealthy it is still a bliss!

Every heart belongs to a Country,
my Country is no different from others...
with a sky ever blue, like the calm sea
hiding islands with a striking beauty;
I walked its flowery and rocky paths,
plunged my looks to the clear deep
to discover what others seek...
nothing She withheld from me!

A foreigner among native inhabitants,
abiding and hard-working,  
thriving in this prosperous Country...
where all are given an opportunity;
and if  everyone starts out
with the simplest dream,
it can bring them financial security...
anything is at their command through incentive!

Every heart belongs to a Country,
it may be mine, yours or theirs;
it may be depraved of liberty or free,
have green forests, open meadows
or barren soil without streams...
but the people's creed 
is sacred and holy!
Loalty and bravery always endure
in every heart that belongs to that Country...
that can inflame their ardor!

HEARTSTONE

For days you hunt but nothing found, 
for the heart stone to reveal its' self, 
buried deep in shadowy ground 

This shadowy land that I walk, 
sometimes alone 
for I am the gatherer of the heart stone 

The heart stone, 
find its' glow, 
for it will surely show 
its' self to the seeker, 
for if it lies in shadowy room 
it grows weaker 

The heart stone 
does not like being alone, 
alone in shadow, 
hidden so 

The heart stone 
needs to be found, 
its' light displayed 
for living in gloom 
causes its' light to fade 
in shadowy room 

The gatherer will look 
in every shadowy place, 
seek out and reach, 
the heart stone, 
find its' place 

For it is bound 
in shadowy room 
all alone, 
waiting to be found, 
by the gatherer of the stone 

The gatherer of the stone 
will never tire, 
searching the gloom 
for the jewel of hidden fire, 
that lights up the room 

For the stone is in our shadowy place 
bring it forth to show its' face, 
throw off darkened room 
and let the heart stone bloom

SHADOWFIRE

Deep in the mountain, 
in its' heart 
Somethings you never know 
Untill you find them 

As you see... 
As you feel... 
In your darkest hour... 
You find something 
To take you, 
Higher 
A shadowfire 

Illuminating your darkest hour 
For, there is always light 
For, in a mountain ,so deep 
There lies a Shadowfire 

You are never alone... 
No matter how dark it can be 
A Heartstone, 
inside too 
A shadowfire 
Lies inside of you 

Deep in a mountain... 
In the Land of Eagles 
A Shadowfire 
That can lie in your heart 

A flame of purest blue 
Captured the inner you 
A Shadowfire 
That you always knew

HEAVEN IS THE PLACE

Heaven is the place, 
where everyone, 
knows your face 

Gentle and kind........ 
Are the ways 
The ways you must find 

If kindness were a flower....... 
then the heart is a meadow 
Purple and blue 
Soft pinks too....... 
All for you 

If gentleness were an ocean.......... 
Then the soul is the boat 
Blue and green 
Idyllic emotion...... 
Sailing serene 

If love were a colour......... 
Then the heart is pure gold 
Shining through 
Unspoiled......... 
For you to hold 

If giving was a stream.... 
Then the heart is a waterfall 
Bubbling flow....... 
For those who know 
For those who hear it's call 

Heaven is the place....... 
Where everyone 
knows your face 
Humility and grace 
Garlanded like lace 

If forgiving was a grain of sand......... 
Then the heart is a mountain 
A rock to which........... 
all will flock 

If patience wasa slender reed............... 
Then the heart is a mighty tree 
These qualities you need 
You see....... 
In heaven............... 
The place to be

This Must Be a Battlefield

Over dramatic phrases bring back thoughts of old time,
My overdrawn heartbeat sets the pace of every line.
I look through this window as the wind sweeps the trees,
My gaze becomes a stare as my thoughts become beliefs.

My stare begins to fade because there's nothing left to see,
My life becomes my glory as the Spirit speaks to me.
So take a few steps back, let's look at this scene, with the trees,
I'm stuck in this windy forest, as if there's nowhere else to be.
The wind becomes a stutter as it slowly fades away.
The night-life dances off, as the dusk becomes the day.
I begin to wander off, but the Spirit says to stay.
It continues to flow and whisper so swift in the night behind me,
The epic, bittersweet words are faintly spoken, as if to guide me.

Overplayed insights of the future yet to come,
Oh so many years, but yet you're still the one.
I've tried so hard for these words to come out right,
Who would've known I'd be found in this forest, on this night?
The trees are still swaying with the help of the gentle breeze,
Words once held in, now fade away with ease...

Now let's not fool ourselves, the Beast still lurks around.
As if a portrait of bland colors swirl about as I turn around.
He’s waiting for the chance to catch me off my guard.
Who would've known that being faithful could be so hard?
The thought of giving up begins to pound inside my head.
The beast says, "Keeping this 'faith' will amount to nothing in the end."
"How are you so worthy, when you run about and sin?"
"What will you have to give your God when time is up, and you are dead?

But the spirit turns the corner, revealed from surrounding trees.
"Son, save yourself, and just listen to me.
Open up your heart, and be obliged to close your eyes.
I am the worst, I am the best, I am your light when you are blind.
So break the curse, and leave the rest.  Follow me, it is time."

In the Heart of Sol


Oh, the mists on the tops of hills sleep
as if cast into skies as gray spells
and the color of magic now seeps
from the breast of the tall earthen swells.

Here the bright eye of Sol shall appear
as he dawns from the Eastern-most sky
with his chariot drawing so near
he makes blue bells forget they are shy.

Oh, his touch tickles reddest rose hips 
whilst he winks at the lily so fair
and a kiss on the sweet peas soft lips
all begotten inside his gold stare.

Oh, he chases the chill from the morn
though he's aching beyond all compare.
Oh, his sad heart awaits so forlorn
as he dances in joy on my hair.

Oh, he saves all his best 'till the last
when the twilight unveils the pale moon
and he sighs as he sees her float past
and her beauty and grace make him swoon.

Oh, he waits and he waits to see when
the conditions are all about right
and together they will be again
when she kisses away the daylight.

Oh, he waits for a chance to embrace;
the affair that has been there between
Oh, the mists try to shield his rapt face
and conceal moments he's rarely seen.

Oh, she shines in his heart when it's dim
and she lights possibilities way
and he knows she will dance there with him
if he only awaits that grand day.

LAST LIGHT

Last light, 
falling 
Sky on fire 
Shadowy spire 
My heart calling 

My heart, 
the colour of the sun 

My heart given to you, 
at last light 
The colour red, 
last light sunset 
Come to bed 

My heart , 
the colour of the sun 

The colour red, 
falling 
Radiating on our bed, 
my heart,....... calling 

My heart, 
the colour of the sun 

Last light, 
falling 
The sky on fire, 
my heart calling 
My desire, 
I give you the night 

My heart, 
the colour of the sun 

My heart given to you........... 
at last light 
This magnificent view 
The colour red 
Colour sunset 
Night, 
the colour jet

GRACE"

From the heart, 
comes from deep within 

That deep pool 
of rich emotion 

Tranquil and calm 
this sea of goodness 
on which our actions flow 

Grace,to delight in the smallest of things 
call of bird, 
to hear a child sing 

This deep pool hides many a thought, 
I sail on this pool,hand trailing in its wake, 
new feelings sought 

To dip in and reach what you want to be, 
accept what what you are, 
what you can be 

Grace,the most precious pool we have within us 
We have many wells of emotion 
Grace,the precious of all. 
cannot be given away,only sailed upon 

If you have that sail boat, 
sail with me 
Sail with heart unfurled 

Grace, 
comes from within, 
reflected actions flow, 
from the tide of my heart 
gently lapping on the edge of my life 

From the heart 
from within

Co-Dependency

Hold me in the palm of your hand
squeeze me oh so tight
let me ooze between your fingers
and melt into the night.

Wrap me round your little finger
wave me into the light
break my heart in little pieces
all thrown into the night.

Never let me see the woman
God meant me to view
just keep all my passion
ever in worship of only you.

Wear my heart upon your sleeve
always in my sight
begging ever my forgiveness
as you fade into the night.

I Give My Life to You Oh Lord

I give my life to you oh Lord
Make with me what you wish
I give my life to you oh Lord
That your will you may accomplish
 

I give my life to you oh Lord
Take my worries and my fears
I give my life to you oh Lord
Take this grudge I’ve had for years

I give my life to you oh Lord
Take my family and my friends
I give my life to you oh Lord
That my broken heart may mend

I give my life to you oh Lord
You are the maker of all things
I give my life to you oh Lord
That my heart may truly sing.
