Person of Colour

Person of colour is coherently germane,
He is never insane.

Some things about this person of colour may seem strange,
He is simple and he is yet to engage.

This person of colour loves the critics,
It is from them, he ticks.

This person of colour is natural,
And so, he is not a trial.

This person of colour loves to exchange
Ideas beyond his range.

This person of colour loves keyboard,
Tis with this he comes on board.

This person of colour is a charcoal- a black beauty.
This person of colour is me.

MOON and SEA

~Moon & Sea~

Hey boy won't you open that door?
Let's sing and walk by the shore

Come and spread out your eyes
Block looking for reasons, and whys?

The cosmos are more than a space to explore
Don't hide when I need.... Plus more.

Finish playing a master in disguise!
Lets find the perfect sunrise, sunset surprise. 

Put your arms around me
Allow your moon to reflect off my sea

Too much time has passed you by
Come outside with and view the horizon up high

I've got my eyes set upon you
There's no need to feel blue

Hey boy comes, climb up this tree!
I'm going to show you all the things you can't touch, you can't see.

Lets fit the luxury and beauty of this world into our play.
Don't say them words that will set me free to walk away.

Take this kiss and see how it feel deep within your heart.
Close your eyes in my garden, and draw with the fragrance of art

I want to take you into that space, astronomy love.
Making it easy to float with the clouds way up above.

Glide away from the blame of gravity and self destruct.  
Bounce of the dust of hurt when you fall and get cut.

Boy, let's hold in this perfect air together.
Leave the cold end of someone else's weather.

Follow me beyond the distance of chemistry.
I will expose your moon and explain the physics of my sea. 

Give it another chance and you will see!
Your moon, is skin deep, needing water from me. 

Turn on the tune in your heart, and listen to me. 
In every sunrise, the moon entwines with the sea.

The Luckiest Man

The Luckiest Man


I have found that not everyone is as strong
As the skies are wide and the days are long

But in life I have found there is this one
Whose bounty makes me feel as warm as the sun

And from the moment that she first caught my eye
I knew I’d be with her til’ the day that I die

That I would love and cherish her all the day through
And do all those little things we men are supposed to do

And spend my days lost in utter bliss
That I had this beautiful woman to kiss

And there’s one true fact ‘bout her being my girl
That makes me the luckiest man in the world

A Flame Once Burned

A flame once burned so brightly everything in sight seemed quite beautiful in its blinding light. Everything I took for truth once upon a time seemed to me more glorious; love seemed more sublime. Then the fire began to die. Every little flaw I began to clearly see till I’d seen it all. Half a lifetime and the flame still is burning out. As it dims, I am learning what life is about. But the happy medium I had come upon soon will flicker less and less. Going….. Going…. Gone. When my flame goes nearly out, will there come a pall? In the darkness that will come - will I see at all? How I miss those days of yore - passion of my youth - when a flame once burned, and I thought I knew of truth.

Melos

Bodies molded into one, golden by the fire-light Heat between the lovers touch could warm the coldest night Golden locks around her shoulders; the softest hands upon her waist Of all the sweets and wine been tasted- his lips the sweetest taste. Her cheeks were red like roses, and his eyes were bright as day, Imprinted on the others heart, there could be no other way Gentle moans and gasps of love, ensconced in lovers game Eros, Philia, and Agape, with neither lover tame. His heart was her heart, his breath was her breath Making love until time's end, and then his death her death.

Delicious

I would taste you up and down, 
From the top of you to your base, 
Nibble your ticklish places, 
Then kiss the smile upon your face.
I would pull you with sweet longing, 
To where only you could see, 
And place the deepest parts of me, 
Warmly within your reach.
You would fold yourself in my safety, 
Wrap yourself in my love, 
You would feel my passion enclose on you, 
And I would fit you like a glove.
I would fill your soul with nourishment, 
That only a good woman provides, 
You would release all your secrets into me, 
And I would hold them safely inside.
You would kiss me and whisper so sweetly, 
That from me you will never part, 
And gently, eyes down, I would offer to you 
The last piece of my heart.

Fall From Grace

Like Wax Between the Feathers of Icarus,
                           The Structural Support Beams Melted.

                                     - They Held hands as They Fell -


The Copier Was Running, Fresh Sheets of 
Warmed Paper Slid Out From The Side.

                                     - He loved the Rich Scent of the Heat -

A Smile Crept Across His Face as He Felt
The Stare of Her Eyes, Gnawing at his Person.

                                      - Never Managing the Courage to ask Her -

Light Flickering From The Monitor Glinted off
His Morning Coffee, Office Life Was Tedious. 

                                      - North Tower Floor 108 -

Time Passed Slowly, But it Seemed To Pass Slower
As He Glanced Over Her Delicate Features:

                                      - Accentuated By Sunlight -

Communication is 98 Percent Body Language. Everyday
They Stayed Silent, But Spoke Novels With Their Eyes.

                                       - He made his Way to The Cooler -

Extending His Reach to Pick up a Cup, His Hand Met Skin;
Not Plastic. He Looked Up With a Nervous Embarrassment.

                                       - Big Brown Eyes Staring Back -

                                                      - The Calm before The Storm -

Rubbing his Lips Together as if To Finally Make That Step
Towards Introduction, He Was Interrupted.

                                       - The Impact -

Their Hands Met Naturally as The Dust and The Rubble
Fell About Their Bodies. They Dropped to The Floor.

                                       - Adrenaline Injection -

Clutching Her Hand and Weaving Through The Smoke
He Made His Way Towards The Exit.

                                       - Staircase Blocked -

                                              - Elevator Inferno -

Those Who Threw Not a Breath To Screaming,
Were Already Dead, But He Held her Hand tight.

                                       - Blindly She Followed -

The Wind Cascaded off Every Wall and Lead The
Smoke To Disperse as it Reached Open air.

                                       - They Stood in the Clearing -

The Fire Crept Up Behind Them, and The Ceiling
Began To Crumble. She Squeezed his Hand Tightly.

                                        - They Had No Choice -

One Leap of Faith, and Praying For Divine Intervention...

They Plummeted.

DESIRE

Desire for you intensifies as our time together arrives
I want you and I need you, only your loving satisfies

When we come together in the passion that we’ve built
There is no shame in my heart, for my lust I have no guilt

I have waited all of my life for a lover who will try
To see how much he can please me and even make me cry

With the pleasures of the flesh that I crave and I enjoy
Who knew a fifty year old man would be my boy-toy

Intimacy had been lacking in your bed and in mine
Until we came together and made love for the first time

I knew I had to have you cause I wanted you so much
You can get me going with only the slightest touch

And then our passion flames into a roaring wild fire
My baby you are the only one, the object of my desire

Couplets of Your Love

As I emerge from the dark, your light engulfs me.
Love ignited with a spark, and I trembled in ecstasy.

Just a soft caress, from the tenderness of your touch.
I adore you with all I possess, which may be too much!

Your moist butterfly kiss, makes my very knees buckle.
I'm in a state of bliss, for your tongue's sweet as honeysuckle!

The smell of your honey pot, awakes every one of my senses.
You've hit the exact spot, for you've removed my emotional defenses!

Your love blankets me, sending me spiraling above.
My heart recites your poetry, and I'm comforted by your love!

My Dripping Pen

When I had nothing left to give I gave you me...
Through all my faults I still stayed free..

While my pen drips words I couldn't say...
You can taste my passion in a silent way...

Hold your body close to the paper and listen...
It will reach out and touch your lips and glisten...

The juices pour down my pages and stain your fingers...
Leaving an impression of warmth and love that lingers...

A Voyage Into You

A voyage of you that starts with a kiss...
A ride taken slow without a spot missed...
Silky curves that have a life of its own...
Rivers of fruit that leads to your home...
Strawberry rainbows that encircle your body...
We drift into bliss as you surrender to me...
Hands that learn to speak on this tasty ride...
Where we lay on a stage where passion can't hide...

WORDS WITHOUT SHAME



Come, my muse, to that mystical realm And shower me with imagination at the helm, Let’s run again along green meadows fair Floating, flirting like fairy wings of exalted air If it just be for a sweep time, or only some hours, Yet for a long while my words, they will flower To weave threads on loose pages, now like weeds Once bathed in fountains of blooming seeds, Then without care, a burst of moonlight shall claim A birthing of free spirit, hands daring without shame © . . ……..

Fire And Sweet

                                       The fire is burning where water can't reach...
                                    Our bodies are in tangles to where our lips meet...

                                Smoke has filled the room as the flames cascade high...
                                        A bed filled with passion as two lovers fly...

                                      Our words are drenched with juices so sweet...
                                          Ice cubes dissolve on skin laced in heat...
 
                                      I crawl to the spicket for just a drop to refresh...
                                       And then back to fire where I do feel blessed...


dedicated to my one and only

Between the Lines of Poetry Soup

Between the lines of Poetry Soup
Lies partly hidden the real scoop

Poets with emotion’s overflow
Spillage of which, they do not know

Leaks between lines of what they write
Discerning souls, bring them to light

Fellow poets with the same disease
Wanting to love, wanting to please

Can read between the lines so fair
And see love affairs recorded there

And secrets longings all scream out
Though unstated, there is no doubt

Which poet is in love with whom
Which affair is destined to bloom

Clear to read Love’s Richter scale
The in between codes, never fail 

Poems present and poems past
Love or friendship, which will last?

Terms of endearment, every one
Is a love song that can not be sung

Between the lines, you can’t deny
Is where love affairs are flying high

For we are poets one and all
Programmed, it seems, in love to fall…

With people whose words do ignite
Who caress the soul with sheer delight

Chorus: 

Between the lines
Between the lines
The love is there
Between the lines

The long standing and hidden pain
The hints of a love gone insane

Between the lines
Between the lines
YOUR love is there
Between the lines.

The Beauty Of The Rain

“The Beauty Of The Rain”

As the sunlight hides our dreams cascade…
 Floating clouds over the world we made…
Raindrops dance on naked wings…
Sounds whisper as passion sings…
A pulse felt without a touch…
Like a kiss caught from my clutch…
Held tight as lips embrace…
While hands speak, and hearts race…
We savor the taste and feel from the rain…
As two bodies pour from what remains…

The Lovers Dance

It was their night they shone bright as they danced their sweet dance
Two lovers embraced in their world of romance.

They laughed and they cried as their eyes locked in stare
It was their world for this moment as if no one was there.

And their steps they so flawlessly glided in tune,
To a melody that touched everyone in that room.

Their passion brought envy to onlookers there,
Who secretly questioned their own love affair.

But as the night closed and came to an end
The lovers were blind to what lie round the bend.

The house and the cars and the jobs that went bad
The kids drove them crazy and their savings were drab.

So they fought to hold on to the things in their life,
That caused them so much of their pain and their strife.

They fought with each other like enemies do,
And dismissed in their life everything that was true.

So when sickness and hardships and troubles occurred,
Their vows to commit seemed truly absurd.

Their home and their kids would now take a backseat,
For their moral obligation they chose not to meet.


So I Ask …
What happened to that dance they danced so well?
With passion and truth everyone could tell.

What happened to their dance where they held so tight?
What happened to the wonder of their glorious night?

What happened to the words that charmed their ears?
With a passionate rhythm that brought them to tears.

What happened to those vows that poured from their heart?
The “I love you forever and till death do us part”.

For these aren’t just words we borrow for the day,
From another who tells us this is what we must say.

We say them cause it’s what we feel true in our heart,
It’s a God given blessing we commit from the start.

But these words are now lost as they fall on deaf ears,
Since the pain and the struggles they’ve created these years.

So the lesson here learned dear people of odd,
Is that love is so fragile but made strong with our God.

So stop fighting for power and money or need,
For all of this nonsense is only our greed.

Keep God in your life and he’ll walk you through,
When heartache and pain and losses ensue.

For why commit vows in the eyes of our God,
And not call on him when life gets too hard?

For the truth of our vows we are all meant to see,
is that marriage is not, made of two, but of three

If reading these words ring some truth in your heart,
Decide that today you will make a new start.

Go hug your spouse and say something kind
Don’t let the small stuff cloud up your mind.

We’re all just lost souls who are trying to cope
If  not there for each other then where is the hope?

You see, the anger, the fight
that in us abide, Is only the insecure child inside.

So rise up above all this fear and this pain,
And see all the beauty that there is to gain.

By trusting in God and his will for you
Together forever he’ll see you both through.

For life is too short for our miserly ways
cheap on our love hence dreading our days.

He made us to love in all that we do
To wake up each morning and start us a new.

So pray for your spouse, ask God to be kind
To the person you prayed in the beginning to find.

They’re still the same person you loved from the start
But life and it’s troubles have hardened their heart.

You vowed that you’d love them in sickness and health
Now is your chance to show God what you felt.

So rise up my friend, don’t say that you’re through
For what if your loving God gave up on you?

Cult of the Bone

The cult of the bone 
the bone
the bone
Chalky and porous and white
as a stone
crushed in a cauldron
in flames in a fire
brewed as a potion
to cure my desire.

My Lord and Savior

If you mess with me
You're messing with an anointed pedigree

I follow God
He knows that I am flawed

Who He loves
I'll love

How He wants me to pray
I'll pray

Who he sends my way
I'll invite in my life with open arms

I won't forsake Him
Just as He won't forsake me

I know His Son died for me
Just knowing that alone has me in tears

Knowing that He loves me enough
To sacrifice His Son

God is my Lord
Jesus is my Savior

The Father of the Savior
Has given up his Son so that I may live free of Sin

Knowing that I can talk to Him anytime, any day, anywhere
Has me dropping to my knees

I pour my soul and heart into every prayer
I know He hears all I say

Most times He'll answer my prayer easily
Other times I have to work for the answer

In the end everything is going to be alright
Because I love Him and He love me

Morning Smiles

Morning smiles that stay all day...
From sun to moon we had our way...

A kiss that starts with the shades down...
To a hug on the beach under stars found...

Lasting memories caught on pages flipped...
Remembering slow kisses slowly sipped...


(my first attempt at poem in weeks)

Wana Be Yours

When the nights turn cold and there's nobody at home,
I want to be that person on the phone.
When nothing seems right,
and the road ahead appears less than bright,
I want to be that person who holds you tight.
When no one seems to care,
and tears start running down your stare,
I want to be that person who's always there.

When pain damages your spirit secretly,
and sadness affects your heart equally,
I want to be that person to rescue your frequency.
When dreams go their separate ways,
and ambition goes up in a blaze,
I want to be that person to provide the desire within your gaze.
When barriers stop your smile shining,
as beautifully as dawn and all hope looks forgone,
I want to be that person who believes in you to carry on.

When happiness exudes your clutch,
and life's struggles are never a crutch,
I want to be that person who receives your touch.
When you manage to make it through,
and you look around to see who stayed true,
I want to be that person who hears you say,
"my Angel is always you".
When romance and commitment are mixed traditionally,
and comfort is thrown in additionally,
I want to be that person you love unconditionally.

When moments are in their prime,
and schedules become demanding along the line,
I want to be that person who receives your time.
When patience is taken to execute the perfect kiss,
and butterflies create an instance of bliss,
I want to be that person you will instantly miss.
When your tone is as joyful as spring,
and you believe you can do anything,
I want to be that person to change your life with a single ring.

No matter our individual flaws,
I wish to take a moment and pause.
Draw in a deep breath and steady my cause, 
as I caress your palm and reveal to you "I wana be yours".

Into Love's Hands

          A Touch ,
and sparks
          remind me,
I cannot let your feelings  find me.
      A beat ........
a synchronizing song,
     just too perfect,
just too wrong.
  Your breath.......
a ghostly invocation
     sweeps me with the
inclination,
    to ignore
 my souls decision
   to avoid 
  this  great revision
of my hopes and dreams and plans
'ere I should fall...........

into Love's hands.

I'm Sorry Part 1

I'm sorry that I'm always sad, 
That I do things to make you mad.

I'm sorry that I've lost my hope,
I'm sorry for the ways I cope.

I'm sorry that I bring you down,
I'm sorry that I make you frown.

I swear to God that you must believe,
I love you more than you can see.

I'm sorry that my heart is dying,
I swear to you that I've been trying.

I'm sorry that I cannot see,
much future left in front of me.

I'm sorry that I'm so depressed,
I realy know that I'm a mess.

Writing this note's made me see,
Just how much hurt I've made you grieve.

I'm so disgusted with myself,
I'm so damn bad for your good health.

I know that It's hard to admit,
I've made this such a long hard trip.

I feel like I have ruined your heart,
Like I have torn you all apart.

I have a question for you dear,
And, yes, your answere I do fear.

You said that you missed her big picture,
When you saw, you changed your fixture.

For your sake, love, please look at mine,
Before your heart's put on the line.

I'm sorry that I'm so impatient,
I'm just afraid life's not worth waiting.

I really don't want you to leave,
I want for us to both believe.

I want to once again find hope,
But it will be hard on my own.

But then again if I'm too much,
I don't want to kill all your love.

Re-found Visiting Qualicum Beach

We met a few years ago, then suddenly you were gone
We danced the very last dance to our favourite song

Happenings in our lives took control of our tomorrows
That evening when you walked away, filled my heart with sorrow
   ~          ~          ~          ~          ~          ~          ~          ~            
When I heard the telephone ring, I answered and you were there
And we spoke of the past few years, these years we could have shared

The time flew by when we talked, sharing our pasts to date
When you said you'd like to meet up again, my heart just couldn't wait
   ~          ~          ~          ~          ~          ~          ~          ~           
When I picked you up from the Airport, you hadn't changed at all
Six foot plus with sky blue eyes, still leaving me enthralled

We settled into our night for tomorrows journey we'll make
To a rented cottage so idyllically set, down by the lake
   ~          ~          ~          ~          ~          ~          
The morning came so fast as we set of on our trip
Again going over the years, picturing like a movie clip

Our destination now reached, refreshed we head for a meal
At a restaurant overlooking the lake, our pasts begin to seal
   ~          ~          ~          ~          ~          ~          ~
Back to the cottage we go, as you gently take my hand
So dreamy under the full moon, is this what fate had planned

You play our favourite song, the one we danced to so long ago
As you take me in your arms, something in me flows
   ~          ~          ~          ~          ~          ~
We look into each others eyes as you ruffle my long blond hair
I see desire looking back from your manly sky blue stare

Slowly we discard our clothes as you lay me on the bed
Adventurous discovering hands declare our minds well read
   ~          ~          ~          ~          ~          ~          ~
Our passion resonates, excitement fills the air
Years of catching up in delightful bodily share

We awaken in the morning, spooned within my reach
Our love has been reborn, re-found visiting Qualicum Beach

Cheating?

Temptation reared its ugly head
Tonight as I lay in my bed
I considered what I would do
If I wanted to cheat on you

Looking on the singles sites
Staying up half of the night
Searching for someone new
If I wanted to cheat on you

Chatting with this guy on line
His conversation was sublime
Thoughts of my being untrue
If I wanted to cheat on you

Something is missing here
Something I really must hear
The emptiness might be filled, too
If I wanted to cheat on you

No one else could now replace
How I feel when I touch your face
Realizing this, I would be blue
If I ever cheated on you

So I will stay by your side
Waiting for the turning tide
For you to say, “I love you”
Knowing I’ll never cheat on you

I've Never Grown Up

as a child the crescent moon would visit me at my bedroom window
his face lit up by his captivating smile we would talk hours in a row

i would skateboard on his crest for quite a time in the lull of the night 
in the refreshing glow of the suns residue and on the full of his light 

then always with a wink we would say our goodbyes
then always a slow vanish before the sun rise

The Fireplace

In its hearth, the reds and blues
A life of its own, for us to use
A warmth is given on cold eves
And adds romance, if one believes
No truer picture can provide
Than love near to the fireside
The heat, with embers burning bright
Serve well to make a warmer night
When the fire should die down
Two lovers heart still stay around

Loving Hearts

A kiss on the neck, a peck on the cheeks You turn round to me and our lips sweetly meet Our hands re-discover, yesterdays places As our loving replays, our sensual graces Our love will continue until one of us is gone Until that day happens, our hearts will sing the same song http://www.thehighlanderspoems.com/love-15.php

You've Touched My Soul

You've given me more than you know
You've touched me deep, you've touched my soul
When your loving eyes look into mine
My heart melts and I stand still in time
You're the half that makes me whole
Your love so strong has touched my soul
Sometimes when we wake
It is sweet love that we make
As our love continues to grow
I'll do my best to let my love show
Each day that passes brings us closer together
It's hard to imagine this magical love could get any better
A life together is our ultimate goal
A goal we can reach because you've touched my soul

tease me

Look deep into my eyes seduce me with your stare.
come close and tease me if you dare

As if to almost have you and then you pull away.
like an unspoken promise for a later day.

You are so close now that you feel my heart beat
As i lay awake just holding you beneath the sheets

You feel me rigid and ready for you
But a little teasing is all you will do

Like dangling a meal in front of a starving beast
Who is tired of waiting and is ready for a feast

And you have teased me enough i cant take anymore
So i lean over and shut your door

I kiss you a little as if to tease you back
As i slide my fingers up your six pack

You moan and scream and whisper my name
Wow your enough to drive me insane

Your back arches as you grab the sheets
I see your toes curl as I glance at your feet

Your legs shake as your juices flow
like lava coming from a volcano

You lay back motionless as if you were dead 
You smile so big as your face turns red

You look at me and speak ever so slow
You tell me ( I love you, I don't want you to go)

Mozart

   Music is life and life is the muse
she leads us shows us how to fuse
happiness in every realm
just put music at the helm

  throw aside those traps and reins
come with me and ease your pains
you think too much come  have some fun
hold out your arms,let music come

  you can't hold her ,force her ,mold her
you can't ever even scold her
she is with you or she's not
you have no choice
it's just your lot.

  so give it up and let it lie
come with me and touch the sky
and when we touch back on the ground
the staff will fill
we'll write it down.

Beethoven's Lost Composition

"It happened at dusk, on the eve of my bed
a series of symphonies out of my head
Whistles and pattering, octaves outstretched
Violins wailing and tubas distressed
Starlight shone into my window in white
heaving my breath with this musical sight
leaving my features and shadows in grey
while the melody mastery started to play
First all the strings, then came the percussion
Brass building stamina, with no discussion
Drums most determined and then all at once
the notes of the piano, fortissimo jaunt
Lights popped and fizzled and wrinkled in time
Walls bending backwards a musical rhyme
Bass like a heart beat moving the air
all in the blink of an eye, I was there.
My skin soaked and battered, my eyes shining bright
all concentrating on motion, on flight
After they slowed I beamed with devotion
and stood on my tiptoes, a standing ovation
I've packed solidarity into my chest
to tell you this story, to truly impress
for it happened at dusk on the eve of my bed
a series of symphonies out of my head"

In Your Arms

In your arms is where I want to be
Holding you and you holding me
Tasting love on your sweet lips
It couldn’t be any better than this

In the night or early morning light
We come together, it feels so right
Loving you means everything to me
Our love will last through eternity

With you this close, my mind goes blank
I can’t breathe and I can’t think
Never felt quite like this before
Oh, sweet love, couldn’t ask for more

The way you touch me in the dark
You light the fire with just one spark
I catch my breath, you like that sound
As we enjoy the love we’ve found
I
 long to give you pleasure, too
Just tell me what you want me to do
I plan to keep you satisfied
So you will always be by my side

the Kiss of Chaos

    The kiss of chaos
chaotic kisses,
what a gaudy
goody 
this 
is.
Tiny increments
of change,
lick your lips
and rearrange,
molecules
and atoms
charged,
with a random love
at large.

met you in a laundromat
feeling old and feeling fat
kissed you on a daring whim
chaos dancing on the brim,
of a mouth 
like 
neverwas
in my dreams and just 
because.

Kiss of chaos,
random acts
altering
chaotic facts
stack the cards and
tilt the game,
I just relit
an old
flame.

George Sand

  Chopin my darling,
your brow is so warm
come off to my island
you'll come to no harm

  I'll hold you and keep you
and guard you most dear
protect you from all
of the things that you fear

   you haven't the power
the strength nor the way
to care for yourself
and to write and to play

  come off to my island
leave all else behind
your music will prosper
as well as your mind

  I'll lock you away where
your genius will thrive
I'll give you my heart
and I'll keep you alive!

Puzzles

Put on the red coat, put on the mask
Flash dancers wait just to finish the task
To raise up the curtain on all of these acts
I don't know for certain, I don't have the facts
But somebody told me that you were the one
to brighten the moonlight and turn up the sun
to call in the ocean when twilight enfolds
the seashore at sunset when someone beholds
that miracle moment when all thinking ceases
When lovers and losers are equal in pieces
of puzzles in Sanskrit cascading free
If you give me your hand you can take all of me
I haven't a coin nor a deed real or written
I know you aren't sure and you haven't been smitten
but yesterday morning I saw something new 
I think it was me and I know it was you
Riding a rainbow, boy what a blast
Do you think there's a chance for a love that could last?

Equality

        

The one thing in life we all strive to be is equal in every degree,
And I think everyone should have the same rights, don’t you agree?

We can all be equal but we cannot all be the same,
There is a difference and you can’t hold other people responsible are try to point the blame.

Certain things that have happened should be buried and forgot,
Otherwise it is like a cancer that will eat at you till you rot.

We all need forgiveness in our lives and truly that is the key,
Without forgiveness none of us are free!

The next step is compassion and kindness,
Show love instead of hate, helpfulness instead of hurtfulness might be a way out of this mess!

Teach respect and honor, not bigotry and greed,
Then maybe God will water and nurture that seed.

God made each and every one of us and I don’t think this squabbling He had in mind,
So we should all bury the hatchet and live for tomorrow, for yesterday is already one day behind.

How Rare

How rare are those passion flowers
That open in the midnight hours
With waving tendrils in the night
They bask in the moons white light
As hours pass they say goodbye
To their friend in the western sky
And while that white light can only fade
A golden glow is being made
From the east it rains down rays
Of sweet sunlight that clear the haze
Surrounding all the purple petals
Shining bright like precious metals
From the heavy dew weighing down
Those proud petals like a crown
Of lights that stays with them until
Noon comes on and brings the thrill
Of the only perfect viewing hours
That those pretty passion flowers
Will ever see in there short lives
For when sun sets and moon arrives
All those lovely blooms will close
And all I can do is suppose
When next these leafy vines will choose
To open buds and to diffuse
All the colors held within
These long limbs, stretched and thin

Blowing a Kiss to You


From my heart's garden I pluck a rose for you then turn it to a kiss,add my love and warmth too. Before blowing I touch it and add my lips softness then teach it a little bit about how to caress. I know you are waiting there miles away from me so I look for wings that would carry it over the sea. As I look at the sky some clouds stopped and smiled they wanted to carry it over those thousand miles. So my dear you must keep your eyes closed and wait Soon you will be surprised by the tastiest kiss till date! ;) ===================000================== By:kash poet

Malvan Beach imagery deciphered

3rd march2012, by: Sashi Prabhu (zeauoxian)
Form: rhyming couplets

Sandy tracks, still and dormant, lie await for us,
Virgin sands of Malvan beach, its breeze my body salty caress.

Through the grooves of coconut palms swaying tall,
We trudge to the sandy shores backpack and all.

Green thatched leaves. Crowns of glory, shade it extorts,
Swinging hammock  to nest me in my denim blues shorts.

A strong breeze blows saline pelagic scented odor across,
Blue waves melt to foam, kiss shores, hued shells emboss.

Lonely eagle soar virgin blue skies,
More of the brood join in and glide past fishing boats floating by.

A murder of crows feast on our eaten table,
As in the warm waters we dip, the crows our food they garble.

The waves sound gushing rhapsody repeat,
Us jovious beach bums in water enjoy the sunny heat.

Dry fishing boats on logs they are on the sands to park,
 Lie along akin, like silent serpents, waiting   for dusk to embark.

Sea gulls they glide over silver wavy waters,
Food seeking dives perform, for them that’s what matters.

A pack of dogs they frolic with glee,
As the fisher folk heave coir ropes dogs from there flee.

Golden sunlight darts out of stagnant clouds formless,
Group of lads, beach volley ball they play tireless

As I sit ten meters away from wet sandy shores,
Melody erupts as waves repeat encore.

The Heart's Yearning

From an early age she yearned for something great
What it was she did not know, but she really couldn’t wait

For many interests she had, both large and small
Her love of animals and great friendships, she grew with them all

An insecure father who controlled all around
Was mitigated by mom until she was ground down

All added to the general confusion we experience early in life
But our values and strength of character help us with strife

That we continuously face over our time on this earth
Which produces some grit and grime that impedes our search

For that pinnacle of happiness, whatever it is
The finding for some is like taking a quiz

On subjects we don’t quite understand
With no guarantee to reach that promised of lands

Of joy, contentment, bliss, all words that describe 
Whatever we believe is that ultimate ride

Her journey is similar to many of us
It’s good times and bad that cause a great fuss

Her strengths are vision and commitment to move towards a goal
Not letting “reality”, pain, or confusion take too great a toll

Understanding that it isn’t just reaching the end
But enjoying the journey and making sure you ascend

To that place of places we all want to be
Our true heart’s yearning, I think you’ll agree

For her specifically, that is to say for my wife
She’s given me all that I wanted in life

A great family including kids, dogs, cats, horses, and then some
And encouragement to go after a calling that was right under my thumb

She’s a great friend, and remarkably so
That I want her to have that additional glow 

That comes from achieving her ultimate heart’s yearning
Making something out of nothing, using passion and life’s learning.

The Shade Of A Swizzle Stick

The shade of a swizzle stick
Clank to a glass
Stirring of wet stuff
Cooling of gas

Pleasure from drinking
Washing it 'round
Gushing then gobbling
Drooling it down

Clunk; there's an ice cube
Frosted in vision
Sunken till risen
Expanding with fission

Spinning the cherry
In circles that narrow
Mulching the flavours
Till bones fill with marrow

Blending the colours
In one seemly manner
Tasting the sword
Through lips you have gored

Stabbing the olive
With one splintered pick
Tasting the olive
In one bite that's quick

Laying the napkin
Aside of the glass
The glass starts to dribble
The waitress walks past

My Perfect 10

If I picked my Valentine
she'd be a perfect 10.
She'd have blonde hair with highlites
and answer where and when.

She'd be a little shorter,
yet tall enough to kiss.
Her reach a little longer
to torture us in bliss.

Her shape would be the bomb.
As sexy as they come.
With hair up for the moment
I'd meet her at the prom.

She'd talk a little faster
with words I'd say are smart.
Yet keep me to attention
in hugs up to my heart.

A smile just like a lion.
Her face a source of pride.
One to show my mother.
And then to make my bride.

My Valentine was perfect
as I lost her way back then.
How was I to know that she
would find her perfect 10.

Blindsided

As we move through our daily life
Sometimes with heartache pain and strife
Along comes an angel with eyes of blue
Then you're convinced she was meant for you

As we wade through uncertainty, wonder, and fear
Thanking the Lord for someone so dear
That there can be such goodness beauty and love
Convincing me this is a gift from above

As God lifts me and heals me from my loss
There are unfound mysteries and bridges to cross
One of my crossings has led me to you
And to be by your side is all I want to do

We have both seen our share of sorrow and hurt
Then you find yourself in a place where they do nothing
but flirt
That's all gone now and I have firmly decided
By the Lords good hand I have surely been Blindsided

Turtle Soup?

Some call it an aphrodisiac.
They say it gives a man a strong back.

Like a good woman, turtle soup makes no sense;
 Can something so delicate be so intense?

Like a woman, the flesh has several delightful flavors.
Remember, each mouthwatering sensation should be savored.

When you taste her, bask freely in the sapidity,
Acquire the feel for this pure tortoise delicacy.

Don’t rush, familiarize your taste buds.
There is no such thing as a first sight love.

Recognize, there is a mystique behind that hard shell.
Did someone say turtle soup? That does not ring a bell.

Two Ice Cubes

Placed two ice cubes on a hill...
Watched them glide as they will...

The blissful ride took many turns...
Dripping through a path of many yearns...
 
Destination is a warm sweet place...
Where raining flames kiss my face...

Each cube melts in the oven of enticement...
Where it can be tasted on lips with pure excitement...

Beast back to Love

Her decadent world
Brings tears to her eyes,
A carnivorous place
Filled with lies,
Upside down kingdom
In a storm
Only love that is written
Can keep her blood warm,
Truth emanates from her lips
As she dives in
Restores her grip,
She cannot let the task daunt her
The shadows cannot haunt her,
Reflection must take place
To win this inevitable race,
With God on her side
She can abide,
The ghosts of her past
Are fading fast,
A heart that radiates from up above
Can restore this beast back to love.

 Loving You is Blissful - My Darling Hubby 

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

 Sparkling amidst the million stars..
 chosen the crazy pal and so life is excellently par.. 

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

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

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

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

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

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

 Thanks for being accompanying me my theist..

 Your admirer with lots n lots of Love:

Chocolate and Caramel

Chocolate and Caramel
Go together very well

When these flavors do combine
It’s a pleasure most divine

A blend of sweet harmony
Brings about sheer ecstasy

Every lick is pure delight
It’s a pleasure out of sight

The creaminess is pure bliss
These flavors are meant to kiss

You’re chocolate; caramel’s me
We belong, oh can’t you see?

Everything ‘bout us is sweet
One makes the other complete

So come on, let’s intertwine
Our union will be sublime!

TIDES OF TIDINESS

TIDES   OF   TIDINESS   

If  I was God,  the geographic world I would bless:
I’d start by tidying  up my world map for it’s a mess.
First let’s examine the ideal  -  man-made edges can’t be beat.
Look at places like the USA -Canada boundaries  - wow they’re  neat. 
Saskatchewan  and the Four Corners  -  geometric perfection.
Australia’s states  too,  and Africa, especially the northern  section.

It’s the  instinct of all poetic  geography teachers
To want to tidy up  the world map’s ragged features.
The  British Columbia coast needs sweeping with a  big brush and 
All those islands pushed till they’re joined to the mainland.
Same goes for the chilly south coast of Chile:
So many islands and peninsulas  -  it’s just silly. 
And also the fjorded Atlantic coast of Norway:   
Smooth?  Neat?   Geometric?   No way!
The Canadian archipelago too might as well be joined up together
Cos it’s one frozen mass all the time in wintry weather.

Of those messy lakes of Canada and Finland we have no need:   
With God’s giant blotting paper  I’d make them recede.
And  don’t get me started about the crazy course of a river.. . . 
Pure logic and efficiency I can deliver:
The Amazon rises only 60 miles from Peru’s Pacific coast  
But clearly it felt the need to have something to boast.
It should have gone west instead of 4000 miles east  to the Atlantic
A wasted effort,  silly choice  -  it ended up being absurdly gigantic.

And I have bigger complaints, such as South America 
Being fitted back where it belongs into the coast of Africa;
And the Red Sea’s coasts, moved apart like edges of torn paper all raggedy:
Dunno whose idea that was,  but it ain’t foolin nobody.
Obviously they should be stuck back together jigsaw fashion
To satisfy my  geographical  neatness passion.

. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .

Take a glance at your bedside atlas to see the places mentioned.

Autumn's Air

Autumn I love you color and splendor 
Plump sweet grapes filling me with ardor

A patchwork quilt......velvet soft leafs
For you I wear my heart on my sleeve 

A wisp of cool breath blows upon my face
A balmy soft touch of your calm and grace

Brides last chance of an outdoor wedding
Flowers bow heads giving up their bedding

Photographs taken a memorable moment
Dressed in an exquisite multi-color garment

Sexy Kiss

We share a look from across the room and I saunter into your arms,
No matter how hard I try to defy, I can never resist your charms;

You slip a hand behind my head and drag me into your kiss,
You tantalize my senses as I lose myself to bliss;

Desire takes over my body as you take my breath away,
We stand in utter silence, we’ve nothing left to say;

There is an overpowering smell of whiskey and cheap perfume,
But locked in a passionate kiss, we’re alone in the crowded room;

Your kisses taste so potent, I savor the exotic flavor of you,
Your intoxicating to my senses, like the sweetest morning dew;

Wrapped in a fervent embrace, our bodies meld to form one;
I lose myself to you and it’s only just begun...

Nicholas

Pluck your soft and gentle strums, Forcing out your fading hums Sing forgotton words, now empty, That used to tug my tears a plenty Whisper through soft lips, the truth, Awakening your dying youth Words of saddening emptiness, Between the Bars, just one more kiss Mumbling lyrics, fumbling strums, Forcing out the softest hums Brush the air with every breath, Until all sound is put to death

Dehydrate Me

She Sings about Love, But She's Broken
On The Inside Like a Dulling Light.

                - He Lost His Muse -
           - But She Lost So Much More -

Maybe None of us are Talented, Maybe
Love Perpetuates Creativity.

                - Onto a Steel Corridor -
            - Spattered With Broken Glass -

The Only Way Out of This is To 
Let The Waves Lap at Your Feet. 

                - So That The Shoreline Weighs -
               - More Than The Deepest Fathoms -

I'll Play With Fireflies in The Twilight, and They'll
Indulge Themselves in My Eyeline Reflections.

                - Fall To Your Knees in the Water -
               - So That The Salt Stains Your Lips -

Sink Your Teeth Into My Neck and Bite
My Mouth, It Was How Your Back Arched.

                - But Don't Ever Let it Bring You Down -
               - If We Burn, We'll Burn Together, Alone -

Forever Love

Storge:
It’s hard living with a broken heart,
fortunately for me, my heart resuscitated with your breath of life.
Giving me what my heart was missing,
you revitalised love, granting the type of support needed to survive.

Philia:
Never mistaken or misconstrued,
you are both honest and open in equal measure.
Craving no friendship other than ours,
we share a bond deeper than any ocean treasure.

Eros:
When laying in the sheets,
I stare at you and find it difficult to speak.
feeling intense passion,
made perfect by our serene marriage at twin peaks.

Agape:
Realising I am living destiny,
no longer shall my inspiration ever starve.
With a smile that overcomes everything,
I am complete; cherishing our forever love.

A Girls Night Out

On a girls night out, without any guys
She dressed real sexy, showing off her thighs

I couldn't stop looking, I must confess
Admiring her form, enhanced by that dress

Dancing with friends, she exuded comely grace
If she was shy, she revealed not a trace

Passionate moves, made my temperature rise
Hers the embodiment, of bedroom eyes

Gathering my courage, I took a chance
Making my way over, I asked her to dance

She said "So sorry, I'm here with my friends
perhaps a coffee, when the evening ends."

I gave her my number and walked away
Wishing in that moment that I could stay

When the girls night ended, our night began
That sexy woman, made me feel like a man

The Priest and The People

"The gates come down this night!"
Roared the man of light

Driven by fear and obsession
It was one sin never told through confession

Bellowing orders from atop his balcony
Blinded by delusions of glory

The priest led his herd
Countless dreams were crushed with the subtle power of one word

The mob lurched forward down the beaten trail
The wind howled as it began to hail

The wild pitch began to reach fervor
As the line between beast and man began to blur

The hopes for riches and plunder
Fueled the urge to tear the gates asunder

With a deafening crash the gates fell
As did the hopes that whatever lay beyond would release them from their hell

The priest waddled in holding the tails of his gown
Anxiously looking around

But there were no trophies or golden rings
Just rusted monuments to long forgotten kings

The priest fell to his knees
The people gathered to leave

As he began to shout
His eyes fell on the nail marks trying to get out

Beautiful Disaster

Beautiful disaster come into the light,
I yearn to give you comfort and save you 
from the night,
Priceless breaking heart,
I loved you from the start,
But forces from the dark are tearing us apart,
Striking stainless steal,
You must trust that I am near,
Every moment that we share 
makes the monsters disappear,
Delicate dismay
It doesn’t have to be this way
Once you taste blissful fruit you will want to walk
Into the day.

In My Hand

In My Hand

Your voice travels all around my soul..
Clinging to pieces that warmly unfold..

Temperatures rise as words are swallowed..
With silent gestures that our hands will follow.. 

Into the darkness of bliss we scamper free..
Where the rain of desire shines from you to me..

Stuck to each other till the morning air peels us apart..
All through my day the evening plays in my heart..

Now words drop like an hourglass of sand..
And a new poem now falls in my hand..

SUNSET BEDTIME

SUNSET    BEDTIME


The sunset kisses the ocean’s fragrant lips of salt, 
Lapping ‘neath the sky’s purple veil and vault. 
In perfumed mellow waters, in their glory golden, 
Deep sighs the sun, great lazy yellow melon. 


Glowing, flowing his way to rest, down drawn 
To make love to the sleep-hazed horizon:
Their golden bed where fused desires deep
End in surging final flare-out - and then sleep.

                                   To those frosted faces from a winters toll

                                          With clouds that shuffle by you

                                       My shining armor through-out the night



                                    The crickets are even playing our love song
                                             So let's dance all night long



                                         For I know the sun will be rising soon
                              And we'll start hearing yodel calls from a loons tune

The Second Man

Am I doomed to live a tale I cannot simply complete?
Shall I always remember her with every knocking beat?

I loved a girl who was never supposed to be mine, 
I drew her sky with lilies and her ground with pine; 

Saw new horizons from the beam of her blue eyes, 
Never knew these radiant cyans could be made of lies;

They warned me not to dream far with a too-closed lid,
Vanity told me it is envy and my vision became turbid! 

First month was a walk in Eden with roses flying in between, 
Second month declared the birth of a love yet not foreseen; 

The third summoned all jealous gazes and murmurs in a chest, 
In the fourth she disappeared and no it is not some silly jest! 

I wandered far and long trying to figure out as much as I can,
Why the only girl I loved would run away with another man?

Does love deceive humans when it manipulates and controls them?
How easy for us to blindly fall into a cleverly-webbed state of rem!

A year passed me by with all of its months and weeks and days, 
I aged in that empty year but had to bitterly live that phase;

Just then I saw her striding along the road, a vision to be seen,
The girl, who haunts me still, was carrying a baby so serene!!

My heart grew colder as I greeted her with the words I barely mustered, 
The scene deadened me since then and left me again heart-flustered!

You're the air that I breathe
The calm to my seethe

You're the love that I hate
The one perfect mate

You're the way that I move
I walk in your groove

You're the pill that I take
With all that's at stake

You're the love of my life
Though you fill me with strife

You're the cloud in my rain
Confusing my brain

You're the hue in my clothes
So that everyone knows

You're the hunch in my back
It keeps me on track

You're the word on my lips
The sway of my hips

You're the way that I live
Though it's hard to forgive

You'll be the way I go
For I love you so

And we will start an improvement
To crime and corruption, killing and bullying
And all other demonic doings
There will we be on the top
And see our nation fills the gap
By you as future leader, to whom I care
Failing us, please never dare
There will I teach you to be an avenger
And to be this nation’s super defender
A man of powers, and faith
Destined to save this generation’s fate

A man that will not to be fooled
With a mind as your number one tool
Heir of earth when we are old
With a future as bright as gold

Without giving any harm and destructions
And if these are will be used
This place will be better not only good

Correct the past and my generation’s fault
Do not let it to continue its growth
For you to suffer is not to be
Save this earth for thee and me

The world shall celebrate whether to dance or sing,
For there are changes that you can bring
If these changes will improve a lot
Then come be with me and be my student

bucket list of wants

Tons more I wish to do, Much more I want to do, Before I am laid on the pyre facing the sky deep blue, Much more I wish to do………. I want to scale scary heights, I want to bungee jump without any fright. I want to travel rough terrains on bikes, I want to make it through forests and go on long hikes. I want to wander singing songs, I want to sing about how I mended my wrongs. I want to be creative again , I want to write about my joys thrills and pain. I want to pour my heart and passion in my works, I want to write verses & haikus without reactions knee jerks. I want to take many a calculated risks, I want to learn from the entire process without shortcuts or fancy tricks. I want to contribute for a good cause, I want to give without siphoning material or emotional dross. I want to untangle messed up issues, I want to wipe off tears with empathy laced tissues. I want to work on taboo subjects, I want to solve regression of y on x. I want to listen to my music loud, I want to pen my work in a place far from the madding crowd. I want to sow seeds and many a plant, I want to bask in sun rays that into my room slant. I want to drench in the rains, I want to make paper boats and sail them in the drains. I want to pick up from the ground and smell fresh wet earth, And then joyously have my speech filled with mirth. I want to boldly write about myself only for me, I want the world to know me & my mind as they will always see. I want to meet often the persons, who mean a lot to me, I want to be able to emote my passions and feelings of love and glee. I want to be happy about just any small thing, And all this I want to do before the last breath to my nostrils I bring. Facing the blue skies on my funeral pyre, I want to be on the best craft my soul can hire…. All this I want to do very soon, Before sets into me dreaded gloom. But the life I live is taking its toll, I am yet to get out of this oblivious hole. Time is just right to set aside, And take a ride Fulfill my wants and dreams that I nurtured in me to grow, And I had put away sheathed in a cocoon of time many years ago. Now I don’t want a moment long, And I will do what I want and sing my own song, And do what in me I let grow, Many, many years ago.

Sweet enough to Eat contest

Her angelic smile and darling face,
Melted away a bitter place,
Her graceful presence, genuine and sincere,
Helped my purpose to become exceptionally clear,
For pleasing sounds ran through her hands,
On zebra keys they seemed to stand,
Her unfermented, pure, natural sweet
Performed notes that danced to noble beats,
A delightful fragrance of sheer perfection,
Gave way to an emotional resurrection,
Beloved friend with a cinnamon heart,
Words cannot express where I yearn to start,
When describing a bud that has blossomed into a rose,
Pleasing to the eyes and delightful to one’s nose,
Careful selections of words must be conveyed
For her exquisiteness dries up all weeds that once laid,
In her garden of rejuvenation
Nectars only inspiration,
Not one part of her is stale, dull or stifling to ones appetite,
She is simply beautiful throughout the day and  beyond the night.

A Flame Once Burned

A Flame Once Burned

The new girl gathered her books as the class bell did ring
That’s when I noticed my heart’s spark began to fling
I followed her to physical Ed
I wanted to say hi but my boldness fled
Shafted by my own lack in doubting
Afraid her truth sparks would be most disheartening 
Next to the fire extinguisher the cafeteria door I did wait
Fueling flame of passion my thoughts which did innovate
I spied her and lingered the more inflamed
But the bow’s arm she tightly did clang
Sadly diminished my heart’s heaping flame
I stood at the door as she and he did pass
This flame which once burned seemingly did not last
Sadden and chard what had flamed so brightly
I bowed my head to walk away drably
But oh, I now gaze upon a most delightful redhead
Perhaps the flame again for her could instead

If I didn't think what I think

If I didn't think what I think, I’d think what I don’t
Would I laugh while you cry? Would I enjoy if you moaned?

If I didn't think what I think, I’d be a gangster by now
I’d never pay any bills, I’d hack the system somehow

If I didn't think what I think, I‘d have no respect for boys
I wouldn’t appreciate the good ones, just use them like toys

If I didn't think what I think, I would be studying at this moment
I have my exam tomorrow, I just hope I don’t repent
Spending all my time on PS, making poems all the time
Cuz that’s what I enjoy doing most, I’m having my time!….

My 67 Ford

Though I was young and less than legal age,
I had a friend who co-signed forms… rampage!
At twenty-one, to me she seemed mature.
A confidence of trust that is for sure!
Oh how I loved that year; I was nineteen.
Yes, it was then I took out my first lien.
What fun to have a car to call my own.
All I had to do was pay off the loan.
With, pride…I loved my 67 Ford.
That Galaxy 500, I adored.
I could hardly believe it was so new.
A one owner one-year-old car; yahoo!
I was a tiny gal in a big car.
It was just the ticket for going far.
I could drive to work or go out with friends.
I loved taking trips on those long weekends.
In that car, I felt gladness and had clout.
Sometimes there were problems, without a doubt.
One afternoon, with the engine ablaze,
I screamed for help; my heart sunk in malaise.
I was picking up a friend from her work.
All that excitement was just a life perk!
Some nearby man came running to my aid.
He extinguished the fire while I prayed.
The dealer fixed the car without a charge.
I was back on the road, a kid at large!
We had a problem with a gunshot wound.
Believe you me, by my friends I was lampooned.
A 30.06 was on the back seat.
When it went off you could hear my heartbeat.
My sweater on the trigger; it was cold.
It carried that wound until it was old.
I traded it in; I was twenty-five.
But the Ford still lives in life's fun archive!

Valentine Romance

Valentines day is always something special to me, I explained. 
So I planned a romantic evening and got ready for my campaign.
The children were at a sleepover with their favorite friends they adore.
So I met my hubby as he came in, accidentally tripping and making him hit the door.
Thank God his head is hard as he hit that, the nearby TV, but very little more.
I made Cherries Jubilee as a snack while he sat there with an ice pack to his head. 
But before I knew it, I’d knocked it over and almost burned down the house instead.
When he finally put the fire extinguisher away…
I got up and got some of the kids’ apple tarts I had made. 
He bit in deep and burned his mouth, declaring he wasn’t hungry and the pain would fade.
Next he decided to go upstairs, but I had put rose petals down everywhere in spades.
And yes you probably guessed it… he slipped and ended up needing a little aide.
At this he decided to take an aspirin and lay down upon the couch. OH  HHWell…
But I knew the rest needed to happen above, to totally create this romantic spell…
I had to get him to the candles and bubble bath, where my romantic dreams still dwelled. 
So I got out some scarves and danced toward him, tying up his hands before he fell.
He never knew what hit him as he was lassoed and gently bounced up the stairs.
I guess I wouldn’t have had to tie his feet… a few words would have done as well.
But you know me when I get going, my mind tends to lose a few brain cells…
He was flustered, exhausted and bruised when he got there, but he’s made of the right stuff.
Though as I took off the scarves, he flopped on the bed pulling the covers over his head kind of rough.
He said he loved me, but living with me could be kind of tough.
He said it was better to leave it to him, for the romantic endeavors and such.
He said he had reservations and play tickets in his shirt pocket for later on that night.
But what he needed now was some aspirin and a few moments of quiet respite. 
So with a sigh he started snoring, and my romantic dreams were momentarily crushed.
I dearly love the man you know. But, do you think maybe I tried too much?

Man and Woman

Woman -
My man does not go out like the others,
he’d rather stay in with me, kissing the day away on a bed covered in flowers.
If arguments arise, he walks into another room,
instead of driving to another house over comments he might assume.
His soul is like a wishing pool full of respect and care,
loving me unconditionally; always trying to make sure I know his there.
He bathes me in relationship soaked in milk and honey,
and soothes over my cracks to reveal a value more priceless than money.

Man -
My woman has captured my heart and made it grow,
fulfilling my life with love and devotion to make even the saddest of times glow.
She is not like the rest who whine and complain,
she more like a diamond, shinning bright through any terrain.
Not afraid to be vulnerable in front me,
she will cry knowing how much her tears will affect thee.
Made from the rarest and sweetest hips, lips and fingertips,
her cinnamon body and aromatic mind are nothing
compared to her saffron heart loaded with marriage clips.

Love Found

I call your name and you come
With you anything I succumb

My eyes brighten with delight
To see what you have for me tonight

We kiss, cuddle, and coo
And, I just stare at you

On your white horse you come to me at night
Just like a brilliant, brave, victorious knight

We sit and touch each other's faces
Staring at the lines in all different places

Years of waiting for each other
Hoping we might find one another

Love, happiness, and peace to come
Best of all, I'm glad I am the one

Life in focus

The wind doth brace my body so,
As I stand astride the moor.
Invigorated by its feel,
To the sky an eagle soars. 
For what splendor and sweet freedom,
Will my soul, feel such happiness.
Given all that’s gone before me,
So much sorrow and unrest.
Oh to see the sun at daybreak,
At dawn the rising mist.
To walk barefoot on the dew tipped fronds,
And to know that I am blessed.
For upon my face the warming sun,
That leaves a kiss with such caress.
Flowers with scented blossoms lie,
On their petals my head I rest

Thou True Love Of Mine

Thy name is conjured on the breeze.
And thou hast brought me to my knees.

Thou loveth me with all thy soul.
I beseech thee maketh me whole.

Whither thou goest I shall be.
Forever lost upon thy sea.

Thou hast designed my fate"tis true.
Henceforth we shall be one not two.

My arms doth ache to holdeth thee near.
Eternally I shalt loveth thee dear.

Spring Love

                                ~Spring Love~
Lying on the bank of the river, fingers dabble in the flow
Your head across my stomach, watching the waters go.

Little fluffy ducks abound, and new damsel flies unfurl
The early season brown trout leap, and make a splashing swirl.

Fingers running through your hair, my body satisfied and warm
You trace my lips with your finger, we're hidden from the brewing storm.

The storm we know will hit us, and what will we do then?
But cherish this stolen time together, in our sheltered glen.

Kisses that fall like the spring time rain
We know not when it will happen again?

Spring comes but once a year and we grasp it with both hands
We cherish and watch the buds explode; leaf covers the new born land.

Fingertips that may not touch, in the next seasons rising sun
Time to move on our way, another season begun…

How do we pretend ,that there is no spark of love?
It’s like trying to stop the clouds that form in the heavens above.

Good day my beloved one another spring will come
Perhaps we will share it, under another rising sun.

Love Is a Joyous Promise

As the nightingale sings so do I follow.
I'm filled up with joy and no longer hollow.

When the day lights up or the dark does fall
the weight's been lifted and I'm ten feet tall !

This face I see always in my dreams
is just as beautiful as it seems.

Love like this is just why I prayed;
in the eve's half-light it's why I stayed.

Day's slipped away and night lies glistening.
In the fields of my heart I'm quietly listening.

There's a sound like peace and passion like thunder.
This love's a fine spell I've been put under.

We'll traverse this world together-then sleep.
Now devotion's a promise we both can keep.

A Crescendo, Then A Starburst



This dreamlike creature beside me in bed With long golden tresses and lips of red Eyes like blue sapphires and skin like satin All packaged up in a womanly wrapping She raises her body as we both breathe as one She caresses my face, the passion's begun There's no turning back on this magical ride We ascend ever skyward, we're burning inside We explode with emotion enveloped in love As we ride on a zephyr to the heaven's above A crescendo, then a starburst, we rest on a cloud Proclaiming devotion as we sing it out loud © Jack Ellison 2013

Burning Embers

I close my eyes; I see your face
You, this haunting melody I cannot erase

The smoldering eyes, the captivating stare
Forever enthralled is my heart... so rare

Dare I to dream of what could be?
The endless days and nights to see

Passion ablaze atop loves pyre
Sizzles brightest while escaping sighs 

Waft throughout the warm and cozy chamber
Then softly settles upon slow, burning embers

Sweet Passion

My love,he's an anchor in this sea of strife.
He's many-splendored and enriches my life.

With soul changing clarity I see his heart.
I yearn for the fire of his touch when we part.

Passion grows quickly in the garden of night.
Our love transforms in the sweet morning light.

That's when I know that I'm heaven-bound.
Devotion so pure that it makes not a sound.

He brings everything I imagined always.
Excites me at night and then flood lights my days.

Beyond earthly realm is this rapture I feel.
Desire immeasurable,love that's so real.

Last Night I Fought With The Devil

The devil is a cunning and deceitful being
He plays on your weakness like a guitar string

He hides around the corner, sees when you come unglue
Then at you he comes smiling, saying, this one’s through

Now listen!  Sometimes he gets you and have his way
But sometimes you fight, determined, I won’t sway

Last night he rose up like a lion and stood in my face
I stepped up, shoulders squared, a child of God’s grace

Stand back old Satan, from me get thee hence
I won’t retreat, I won’t surrender, stay on your side of the fence

I call on the Holy Spirit for divine intervention 
Arms were stretched wide for a fallen child prevention 

Don’t mess with me, old Satan, I have lots of clout 
Stick with me, I’ll tell you what it’s all about

You see, Christ died for me and saved me from hell
I am now His redeemed child, my soul I cannot sell

Rammed Into The Weedbed

Rammed into the weedbed she found her way to shore.
Her thoughts invaded by her crew who shifted on her boards.
Back across the water; her visions through a door.
One that shut repeatedly when shipmates pulled her chords.
Resting now as though a chore
that sailors leave like lords.
Down the boardwalk from the floor
relieving her in hoards.
Maiden ship from head to core
who's damage comes in torrids
Without these journeys and your lore
these men would have no swords.

An Ode to Romance

The sweetness of your lips, like chocolate on a fingertip
Your touch is much needed, it gives me that steadfast feelin
Your smile blows me away
Like an island breeze on a scorching day
Your passion is addictive, my love is submissive
Loving you is monumental, so please be gentle
with my heart and dreams
So it seems, that I am satisfied
Because the right guy is by my side

A Poem Is Born

As sleep escapes me my pen is lifted.
Some people tell me they think I'm gifted.

Yet I just write what's in my heart.
Experience is where I start.

Now I send these words out there.
Across the silvery moon somewhere.

Inside a dream I've surely begun
to form a plan,a tale to be spun.

Like a quickened beat of music it swells.
with the nuances of the story it tells.

Upon life's canvas the paints are thrown
while the seeds of a new idea are sown.

Now back to me for a tweaking or two.
My words are spent on a special few.

Those ones who get me so completely
are packed up in my heart quite neatly!

The Feeling

From deep within a silence grows
Vastly spreading, yet no one knows
No one knows of what's to come
The Feeling is sudden, then it's done.
Often with pain, fits of sorrow
The Feeling leaves nothing, not even a morrow
With much haste, take one last breath
We all succumb to The Feeling of Death.

Precious Things

I will talk with you of precious things,
The sunsets' hue and birds that sing,
What children did and adults do,
And teaching babes to tie their shoe.

That time is worth much more than gold,
And greater still - someone to hold.
Health is not so over-rated,
Biggest regrets? O'er those I've berated.

To spend an hour with my niece
Is like another puzzle piece,
The real measure of a man
May be in how he takes a hand. 

How dawn and dusk partner their color
And share that with an ardent lover.
That tiny bloom so trodden on
Could still bear seed, even looking wan.

A child dancing with Elmo and chasing the dog
Is better than coffee at cutting through fog,
Anticipation's not better than the event,
And moments together are time best spent.

I've learned I'm not completely whole,
That television can't fill my soul,
And what I've been and what I've done
Have been negated by the Son.

Me n You

You said you love me,
No one above me.
But lately you choose the game.
I thought you meant what you said, what a shame.
Though it hurts i stay by your side.
Just know your walking a thin line.
One day i'll have you back.
I'll always be here,
Whether were in a hoopdy or a cadillac.
I'm scared for you,
Dont know what i would do if i lost you-no clue.
And i'm not talking about you leaving,
'cause our love has too much meaning.
I'm talking about the next guy pulling a heat.
Thats what i mean when i say i dont want you to leave.
I miss you baby,
Im here to stay
I want to be your one and only lady
I promise its gunna be me and you
Until its through.
You got my heart
Till death due us part.

Garden Of Second Chances

There's a deepening feeling growing so strong
in this garden of love and it's taken so long.

The traces of something that never quite took
have grown pale and languid in this garden nook.

Love that drew disdain has withered and perished
and in it's place lies a thing to be cherished.

He rescued my heart in the nick of time
matching each rhythm with passionate rhyme.

Now love is what nurtures my soul and my mind;
what once was so painful is joyful and kind.

My garden is blooming and thriving you see;
since he and I became a we.

Her back, laced with achne, the sores
bulbous and weeping, he kisses her.

Some sort of bizarre metaphor.

She was his everything, a glowing

There is limitless fathoms to this

Lilac Revolution

She’ll trumpet a mid-summer’s lilac revolution
To smash and grab and take your affection
A twinkled-eyed assault of sweet-toothed pleasure
On half-composed clarity’s measure
She’ll launch a pillow-cannoned war
On every certainty of beauty you had before

She throws light around like a star in the sky
Even her sleepy exhaust is a heavenly sigh
She gilds the clouds on drizzling days
She makes hope smile by her vibrant ways
If her lover embraced her in all her truth
She would be her lover’s fountain of youth

In moonshine night of wine and song
With gypsy-like fever she’ll wring out the wrong
She’ll dance and in dancing burlesque
Ideals of woman and grace painted picturesque – 
By the moralistic mentors of caged-bird blues.
How this bluebird’s a phoenix by night’s fiery hues!

In hangover mornings of tangled heart-strings
Within the houses of healing you’ll hear she still sings
Of undesired responsibilities in a shaky jilted voice
A dew-soaked ballad to sunrise to which your only choice
Is to cater to her jazzy Simone-like disposition
To every her wiled whim, to her warmth, to her lilac revolution

When Love Does Not Spell Passion

The essence of the charcoaled clouds enwraps me in it's gloom.
While thoughts of slanted sunrays try to wrest me from this doom.

My baby said he loves me but he's just not in love.
And I am darkened with thoughts akin to the sky above.

Don't I deserve the magic that a stirred passion can render?
the melting of a fiery kiss that tastes so very tender?

Light in his eyes that looks like me ,my laugh sketched on his soul.
This is my most fervent wish, my ultimate love goal.

The man says we shall never marry, he's just not the kind
to settle down forever with no one else on his mind.

Sometime soon I'll fade away to a bleak but well known land
where I can grow old with myself  and invent lovers grand.

Until then I'll smile faintly and pretend all is well.
Until then I'll disappear into a sorrowful hell.

Below the Surface

Below the surface is a whole new world
Of magic and delight to be unfurled

Below the surface, is a wealth of treasure
Of exquisite beauty that’s without measure

Below the surface of my deep blue sea
Is the secret storehouse of fantasy

Below the surface is where you’ll find
The treasures of my heart and mind

Below the surface at depths extreme
Is where you’ll find that buried dream

Below the surface, is where I come alive
In my depths, I know, you desire to dive

Below the surface, is where I keep my soul
If you go deep enough, I’ll make you whole

Below the surface, is where magic lies
Start the descent there now through my eyes

Below the surface, I’m waiting for you
Come down, my love, swim in love so true

Below the surface, vibrant you will feel
That surreal world, for you I’ll make real 

Below the surface, you will beg to stay…
In my ocean depth, passion drenched each day!

My Love For You Is Easy

There is so much I want to share with you,
But my words are lost deep within me
I have oh so many emotions
How do I make you see

Life is not always that simple
Hear this from my heart
Our faith will concur all
As we stand here at the start.

Not speaking to you is going to kill me
You there and me here
But one day soon that will change
And I will finally have you near.

The Angels they did send you
The day that we met
Our love will last forever
As in stone it was set

Come fly, fly with me baby
Oh come fly with me
We can explore our love together
And set all our deepest emotions free

For the skies are without limits
And the tree tops we sour too
Perched upon a branch
Our love is forever true

I never meant for this to happen
But I am sure glad it did
Hearing your love and laughter
Makes me feel like a kid

Please never doubt my love
What is shared between you and me
Cause I am here to forever hold you
You just wait and see

But for now, I have to be patient
And except our destiny
But I promise you this my darling
You are forever within me.

Sticks and stones can miss their mark..
But hurtful words can hit in the dark..

You can dodge a bullet and a bow..
But a deadly phrase never misses low..

A place to share and sharpen our craft..
But negative vibes still make me laugh..

A round table of minds to write as a group..
I do pray for love and peace on Poetry Soup..


To all that are here for the right reasons...

Farewell

At lengths afar upon thought and night
My affliction lingers upon stars of height

It slowly shatters upon the stars aglow
Slowly they dim begotten from my woe	

Night of dark, you now darken silhouette
I now shall await my anguish and regret

A pilgrim of patience in vain I reach
For ago has gone and tomorrow I beseech

Night! Night, how long shall thee stay,
Until the sun brightens anew another day?

I shall sleep, it said, for I shan’t withstand
The pain bestowed by the bare palm of hand

Shall the joy and passion of mine ebb with thee?
Or shall they descend your clouds for me? 

I shall awaken, it said, a day afar 
Holding your joy in the rays of star

Fire of Temptation

Fierce is the wind fueling the flame. His raging fire has not a name. A young girl, I am, with purity of heart. My innocent spark exposed from the start. The heat of his fury scorches in temptation. Passion shall not lead me to eternal damnation. Trapped and consumed by his fiery gaze. Am I but a fool to chase the smoldering blaze? My tender words blow in the stormy wind. God, please forgive me for I have sinned... This penetrating firestorm, I cannot contain. Alas, only ashes of my heart will remain.

End of Seasons


Leaves fade and die beyond their season,
Falling to dried grass, never questioning the reason.

All things end, beyond a whispered promise,
The purest intent, reality and time paying homage.

Love sadly forgotten, never knowing the reason,
Fades, festers and dies beyond its season.

To have and to hold, as long ago we both vowed,
Creating two lives bound by love, a sacred shroud.

Within my heart, I have given you my soul,
For all time, your heart to mine, you will have and hold.

Detox me from this World

Obsessions and vanities 
False lovers, calamities

Misfortune and shame
Our world’s sinister game

The more you have the more you need,
Fixing your eyes on possessions and greed.

Stab your neighbor through their eye
So they are blinded by your lie.

Keep all busy and far from home
So children are left to roam alone,

Murdered by the age of eighteen
What do you expect when your world is creating machines?

Assembly lines are still in effect,
Just this time it’s your soul they require you to check,

Loyalty fades through each generation,
Yet we wonder why so many are filled with manipulation.

Take a pill, for Everything
As long as you perform, conform and bring 

Take no time to share or care
Just as long as at 7am you are there.

Smiles are perceived as suspicion,
Our mouths are ammunition.

While each group gets worse
We embrace societies curse.

For intellect now rules
Yet, technology has created fools

Dependent on everything else
Except God and ourselves

Detox me
From deep within
For this war is something I will win
The shallowness of daily faces
Leads my spirit into dry places,

Detox me
From former foes,
For their webs were spun and I didn’t know,
Their empty hearts that cannot understand me,
Leads my soul to cry out to thee.

Detox me!

Detox me!

from this world.

Tie Me Up to Your Heart

Tie me up to your heart
With red silken chords so smooth
Bonds of softness to fit your mood
Close yourself to the noise outside
Here in love’s den with me abide
Forget all that’s gone before
I beg you to lock that door

Tie me up to your heart
Do to my heart just what you please
Torment it and then just tease
Let your large heart dominate
My small heart now subjugate
Let might and prowess be shown
And your fiercest love be known

Tie me up to your heart
Make love’s knots extremely tight
Make impossible my flight
Have me bound up to your will
Open to your every thrill
Be my master through the night
Take us clear to morning light

Tie me up to your heart
Let go of all your madness
Your brokenness and sadness
The past hurts that brought you shame
That broke you and made you tame
Sweet freedom is calling you
Now you know what you must do...

Tie me, yes, tie me up to your heart.

GOODBYE

Goodbye to you my Best friend
It’s hard to believe that we’re worlds apart.

 We were like strings on a guitar,
Making harmony and pleasant tones.

You were there when I took the first step,
And gave me directions ever since.

You taught me life’s valuable lessons
And saw me through my mistakes.

Unable to see the virtues you bestowed,
Cut-short by nature’s worthy call.

A decade now past and I realize;
This friend is gone but ever-green.

But with the gift of the Name
Like a tattoo I will always have.

And even if I hate to believe you’re gone,
Goodbye to you my Best friend.

A Night Beside The Fireplace

You held me by the fire place,
For a moment the world simply erased,

With Hot chocolate smeared across your lips,
You gently held my welcoming hips,

While dancing by the blazing fire,
Our eyes spoke all that we desired,

The night our castle,
The snow our tassels,

Warmth hovered all around,
The beat of our hearts created a musical sound,

The wind whispered its sincere approval,
There was no need for your removal,

As we laid by the intensifying heat,
Your arms became my personal sheet,
 
The crackles of bundled lumber,
Induced us into the sweetest slumber.

Believe and Forgive

Introduction: Sometimes your life sinks down a little, 
And when it does try and fight for Islam and have faith in Allah, 
ask for His divine guidance, believe and respect everyone, 
don't hold any grudge against someone, 
forgive them and surrender completely to Allah
And believe in His graceful light.


Don't fall apart,
When light fades away
Look deep in your heart,
Allah will aid your way

Nothing feels wrong,
While nature sings song
Days go along,
Until we're gone

Don't deceive,
Just learn to heed
Do believe,
And you will forgive.

Sally version 4

Sally's stuffing eggrolls in the back room.
Filling them with beansprouts
in case they have a boom.

Hundreds of these eggrolls
piled high for later.

Boiled in an oil
for each and every crater.

Some will go behind the glass
warming in a pan;

shining in their dipping oil,
tempting for a span.

Placed upon a plate and shimmied
to the side;

up against some rice
that's deep and dark and fried.

Dipped into a plum sauce
sweeter than a sneer,

and spread out on your plate
as far as you can smear

Flavour by the mouthful
damp and moist and wet

Sally's making eggrolls
the best that I can get.

300 Lakes

Over 300 puddles of Sudbury lakes

once scraped by a glacier in hundreds of shapes.

Now filled with fresh water for everyones taste

like playing or boating wherever they're placed.

Some fish them or ski them in winter or summer.

Ski Doo them; Sea Doo them and bring them in Hummers.

There's swimmers and soakers with masks and with fins

to snorklers and divers with tanks and black skins.

With sunshine for tanners at rest on the shores

to moonlight and coolers; our social outdoors.

So don't ask your friends who they're coming to see.

and those memories  come racing back and those moments i  clearly remember.

Tenderly she pecks & kisses me on the lobe of my left ear,
to awaken me from my slumber to the sweet face of my dear.

My fresh seeking eyes, they open up to her graceful smiles,
Her eyes hold a world within them & with fondness for me deep insides them for miles.

Staring into each other’s eyes,
For moments of togetherness our bodies, hearts and souls cries.

Love you very much she whispers softly,
Love you too my darling my breath hums fondly.

Now in this sacred moment of sweet togeatherness, us alone,

Passionately & rapturously harness myself to make love & my feeling, churn and brew....

Her eyes hold a world within them & with fondness for me deep insides them for miles.

Staring into each other’s eyes,
For moments of togetherness our bodies, hearts and souls cries.

Love you very much she whispers softly,
Love you too my darling my breath hums fondly.

Now in this sacred moment of sweet togeatherness, us alone,
Her face seems to me so sweet and body glows with beauty lustfully full blown.

Am really blessed to be here now with her for these moments a few,
Passionately & rapturously harness myself to make love & my feeling, churn and brew....

THE MAN WHO IGNORED HIS WIFE


THE MAN WHO IGNORED HIS WIFE


How could you do it dear, she cried
You think you’ll keep me satisfied
How could you quit a Wall Street job
To muck about with every slob
A rising star---you blaze a trail
You’d shuck it all to run a jail?

Oh, my sweet darling, then she quibbled 
You know I love you…. ear was nibbled….
A cold look flashed—he’d not be played
Now stunned by truth--- she was afraid

She had ployed sex, she had coyed tears--
Anger now surpassed her fears
She screamed at him and slapped him hard
He studied her with new regard
He saw himself a man alone
Threw on his jeans and grabbed his phone.
He viewed his love in raw new light
Slammed tight the door, and said Good Night.

Eternal Father

This craving desire that groweth in me, 
Has opened the eye of my mind as to see

The chance of my daughterly duties abound
Shall serve so a well-kept privilege I found.

To none other than my eternal Father, 
Shall this humble heart's moil belong rather.

To sing of His Mightiness ever to sound, 
His kindness and love that has seen not a bound,

His power, divinity, ever so great, 
That changeth, by trust, all of our so called "fate"

His handsomeness more than the purest damask, 
Belief in Him whcih maketh easy a task.

For this boutneous Being I now do live for, 
And so shall I live for, for evermore!

Winter Love

The day of excitement. 
Lusting for her enticement.

Needing to feel. 
That great sex appeal. 

Wanting to roam my hands. 
Emotions going wild in the promise lands. 

Hot but running smooth. 
Two way street no one will lose. 

Loss of breath heart is pounding. 
Soon we will go past our boundaries. 

Sensations are forever growing. 
Minds feeling like they are floating.
 
Hard then soft  fingertips across our body’s.
Hungry wanting more then more until ecstasy is in their findings. 

Constant climax is the way we are. 
Mind numbing always seeing the stars.

SLIPPING INTO THE WRONG PASSION PIT

                      SLIPPING INTO THE WRONG PASSION PIT

                  Loving wrong is nothing new --But pierces all the same
                  Byron did it--Loved his sister to his shame
                  Ruined lives his own and many friends
                  Thorny passion refuses easy blends

                  Fiery love consumes the victims –helpless fools
                  Whips through lives breaks every rule
                  Look at Oedipus a king and you will find
                  One more valiant soul who lost his mind

                  Passion chooses style to fit his taste
                  Sometimes vengeance calls a life to waste
                  Sometimes art will grip and bind your soul
                 Oft is politics or war that digs the hole.

                 Hamlet’s case—another tragic story
                 Father dead amidst a life of glory
                 Saw his mother’s naked love confessions
                 To get even--  faked a mad obsession
                 Poor 'phelia--abandoned –broke her heart
                 Hamlet mad with vengeance-- played the actor’s part
                 Dead Ophelia --lost her fragile mind
                 Hamlet grieving two-- now truly did unwind.

                Having known this dread and tempting love disease
                Know it never ends in any form of ease
                So advice to souls who yearn to wed
                Take care if passion's tears slip into your bed

A SECOND CHANCE

Pristine & white papyrus reams,
No more cradle words of my wanting dreams.

Recalled moments penned have been left at distance behind,
The dog eared papyrus now conceals folded words that spilled out of my mind.

Sad my sorrow dipped nib, that writes these rhymes,
Words flow and my feelings melt and are sublime.

Images of you blur in my mind,
But my love for you is mad and blind.

Agonies brimming ache festoon my heart a whole,
To be with you my, heart’s lone goal.

Yells and shrieks erupt within me and my love it screams,
On its vibrating decibels I try to cradle my dreams.

Nostalgic remembrance
Seeking a second chance…………………………..

Angel Mythology

From the dream of a mage
Here comes the Ice Age
The unforseen illusion
That gives birth to abusion
Bringing upon humanity
A new mentality.

And in this dammed night
When i had slept so tight
2 wings searched the sky
For humans not to die
They searched for the sinner
The infamous beginner
To alter his mentality
With her sexuality
But he sleeps so tight
She can't bring him light
So she enters the dream
Where the 2 will sin

In a world of light
Full of pleasure and delight
A boy fights with might
The beast that took his light
The boy was bitten
He almost got eaten
Helpless in despair
The boy had to be cared
She flied low
Feeling the flow
Saving the boy
Bringing him joy.

In a green forest
A boy and a girl rest
The wings not to be seen
She fell in love with his sin.

                                       Guilt-forced breath has ravaged  me.


                                       My heart's delight I've sacrificed.


                                          For dire neglect I paid a price.

                                               I sacrificed my love sublime.

Brand New Day

Introduction: Some days you feel alive, some days you don't...it's the elegance of life which many face in the days of existence. Through our own fray whatever it may be, we look out for a brand new way towards the light. We wander, more or less as a rabbit looking for its new home; crawling in and out within this baffled world to find serenity - To find a brand new day filled with everlasting aurora of peace and contentment.


Sometimes the sky is blue, sometimes it looks so white
Sometimes the truth hurts too, sometimes it's blinding bright
Sometimes this life feels short, sometimes it seems so long
Sometimes we go abroad, and at times we feel belonged

Sometimes we want to heal, sometimes we just let go
Sometimes we feel so real, sometimes we feel hollow
Sometimes we don't forgive, sometimes we don’t forget
Sometimes we feel captive, and at times we do regret

Sometimes we sure wonder and pray to leave things back
Sometimes we surrender and we get back in track
Sometimes we learn to deem the truth from the lies
Sometimes we feel the change and start a whole new life

One day we see one light that brings in so much hope
It shows one true love, in a whole new view
That day may be today, reading this here and now
These words aren't just to rhyme, but to put a vivid smile

A smile which won't leave off today
As we all know it's a brand new day.

Through Your Soul

Pardon me for this intrusion
But after all it’s my illusion

So I guess it’s up to me
Who and what I shall be

So as I crack another grin
Over the situation I am in

Read these words of my truth
We are as old as our youth

Age is certainly no reason why
Grab a dream and kiss the sky

Winner is I have been told
He who holds all the Gold

Let me add one small detail
I think gold will melt in hell

I traded in my Midas touch
A pot of Gold for a crutch

That’s all ok I don’t even care
I earned the grey in my hair

I earned the wisdom in my truth
Making Poetry my fountain of youth

I reflect on what my life shall be
Grab a dream and dance with me

We will dance from star to star
Embracing who and what we are

Maybe we will stop by the moon
So our dance won’t end to soon

Kicking us up a little dust
Shaking off a little rust

Then back to earth for a while
I sure do love the way you smile

Eyes dancing with pure delight
As they meet with mine tonight

Take my breath and words away
Tell me my love what could I say

Give me love or give me death
Come closer let me taste your breath

Let me feel your every move
Soft, slow, tender and smooth

Come explode with me today
As through your soul I softly play

Silence and QUIetUDE


Alone climbed this hill, Watching so still. I overcame fears, Of all I held of yesteryears….. But up on this height, A majestic sight…….. Cloud flooded skies, A deep breath within me dries…. Tranquility!!! I feel you near, Oh I could sail in the winds without fear. My brown eyes held the stars to light, Soaked in the reflections that rose with pristine delight. Stillness of the moments I distinctly hear, Drained from within me is life’s fear... Stillness my vacant eyes munificently dart around to feel, Blueness is sliding into night’s lap, an obtuse glow alights its appeal. Calm waters come engulf my scorching mind, Pour yourself in through my eyes, quench burning embers that you find. Tranquility drench your serenity into me, Happiness flake my skin and singe it with peace to be. Now the simmering still waters seem uneasy, No waves lash the shores lying calm and easy. It seems that something has made it soporific, Sounds of relenting roars subdued by fresh snow layered thick……. Never ever the moon above has shined down so brightly, I welcome its soothing light within me forthrightly. No rushing water turning to foam, Retreats then comes again from the mountainous whispering domes…… Oh Moon, Entwine your auric wings of joys around my heart, Ooze from it pink flames, so darkness depart. Edify myself with joys of life Darkness gone, light piercing through like a sharp prudish knife. Welcome to my body all joys and peace, Let it override the ebbing forlorn to currents dwindle and decrease. Alone, I now sit, in quietude drenched, Content in myself and with no feelings wrenched. Gratified….soothened…satisfied…pleased, Relaxed…happy….at ease and contented……eased.

Passion


Passion in life always pays,
And fervor with measure is no 
passion,

Flare is a must to make it 
fierce,
Where patience makes it lose 
flame.

Ardent love knows no bounds,
No diligence, no perseverance.

Morning Wishes

In the light of another early morning,
I stand outside, watching the birds soaring.

Today will be one of a better day,
If only my peace were here to stay.

But alas the serenity I feel will all disappear,
And in it's wake will be the shattered things I hold dear.

The crumbling memories of love lost,
The broken dreams forever lost.

A close friend once revealed a light,
But now I am utterly alone in this fight.

There is no love left for me,
I am broken, can no one see?

Now always left behind,
Why is no one ever kind?

I am no longer who I use to be, 
Sometimes I just wish that I could be free.

As free as the bids high above, 
As free as a highly soaring dove.

Measure for measure


Passion beyond measure, goes infinity,
Cascade of melody, swirls to tranquility,

Emotions upsurge, as tides in ocean,
Moods change colors, as clouds of succession,

Every science, there has to be a measure,
Reason and logic, one must treasure,

Quantum or quality, good better best,
Units and standards,evaluate adding to zest ,

Gala days bring forth, charm on the face,
Sadness and gloom, tears surface,  

Credence in love, allures to heaven,
Dejection takes you in hell to burn ,

Ebullition in love, for best to measure,
But is there any measure for that measure?

Speak up your heart, rather than confine ,
If yes, then who else can better define ?

As My Lovers Scream

As my lovers screams my heart always shatter. 
Eye's turned red holding back crystal's of a spatter.
As she is willing to never listen to reason. 
Always defensive thinking of a treason. 
As the full moon rise then the gravity pulls. 
Crashing waves of high tide the hatefulness unfolds. 
The Illumination of the moonlight sparks do shine.
As lovers greed we eventually start grinding.
Like the magic cougar when I stalk my pray. 
Soon there will be nothing for me to love away.
Confusion in my head always needing to be free. 
The only way out is my personal poetry. 
Sex and fantasy has always been overrated. 
When fantasy comes it is always has been forsaken.

Seduce and Destroy

Push you up against the sink,
Nibble your neck until you can’t think,

Skin burning as resistance flies,
Leaning back, close your eyes,

Lips parted heart in mouth,
Tongue teaser, come out, come out,

Ravishing until lack of air,
Arms around neck, hands in hair,

Legs parted, hip against hip,
Into forbidden wetness, searching fingers slip,

Moans hasten indecisive chides,
Unbreakable rhythm of the sweetest ride,

Embrace tightens, almost there,
Plunging deepens in love’s lair,

Soaring higher as madness descends,
Lover’s rest as time bends,

Nerves shattered breathing slows,
No words needed, no place left to go.

Kindred hearts


My one & only sweetheart
Even with our crazy start.

You are perfect just the way you are,
Even with those endless things you sometimes take to far…

A perfect match I see in you,
My love for you is simply true.

Our family unit has grown indeed,
Several years of devotion we shall exceed.

I welcome the next day, with you in hand,
Where perfect moments shall be trace along the sand.

My heart has healed several gashes,
With a simple breath, you resurrected aches.

What I once thought was ruined at all cost.
Without the risk, I would have lost.

My promise to you is this,
I shall stand at your side, this I insist.

The Return of Calm

I love those eyes which pierce my soul
They tear down walls; if truth be told

Set fires ablaze beneath my feet
Invading foggy channels, deep

Like smoldering lava, gazes burn 
Consume my heart and spirit in turn

Soon, a puddle of chocolate in his open palm 
Arrested breath hangs the return of calm

Come In, The Wind Dancer

Come in, you wind, please, settle down
Must be quite tired, all that rushing around!

Tell me a tale – oh, come on, dear wind!
Tell me what you’ve seen, tell me where you’ve been?

Yes, please come in, wind, to tell me a story –
Whatever you speak of, I know will not bore me

You’ve flown over here, blown over there,
Visited places no one would dare

You’ve traveled so near, traveled so far,
Say, what is it like to touch all those stars?

You can drip like the rain, rush like the water,
Cool things way down or make them much hotter

You come on in, my dear, dear friend wind
Blow right through my soul, cleanse me deep down within

Then, take me with you as you go, my dear wind
Carry me gently, pull me loose from my skin

Let’s dance windy waltzes as we swirl through the air
A lover’s embrace – feel the joy we will share

When our wind dance is over & you return me to human,
I’ll feel so much better, a happier woman!

Yes, let us go then, wind, you and I
Throughout the galaxies let us spread wings and fly

Across the blue, true dream of sky
Let us go then, wind, just you and I

No, No, No

Mary, Mary, quite contrary said no too many times.
The boyfriend did cry foul, and left her standing in her prime.
But that’s OK I tell you, he wasn’t the right man to make a team.
And she was looking for true love, that illusive, lovely dream.

The important thing to remember is what this means to you.
Waiting can make sure that true love, is really, really true.

The Blessing for My Book

As my job and health failed me... I dreamed to someday put together a 
book of poetry and this will be the blessing it will begin with...

As I sit here weaving my poetry
Into the semblance of a book…
I find that I must ask Gods’ blessing…
For the journey, that together we have took.

I find I must bow my head in thought…
Over this book that together we have wrought
As my hands clasp oh so reverently and earnestly over my heart…
As I believe his help brought the words together that I sought.

And God set the journey that shaped what now before you begins…
He helped me find the words that reached through my heart to my pen.
I pray the poems will be worthy of what he showed me as my life’s art.
And upon this book I honestly pray that his blessing he will impart.

Beyond Midnight

Amble with me beyond midnight, 
in the abyss; lacking all light.

Allow fingers to be our eyes,
until balmy- golden- sunrise.

Feel supple rose colored lips,
with sensitive fingertips.

Stroke lightly silken hair,
toyed with responsive care. 

Embrace passionate caress,
endorsed with fine finesse.      

Permit our souls to disappear,
in arms within midnight sphere.

The Girl That Was Forgotten

Virgin skin and smiling eyes
lightly steps in black disguise.
The shadowed depths to travel in
‘neath lofted moon’s pale unveiling.
Spirited way on her lover’s calls,
sneaks through silent mirrored halls,
through the arch of guiltless pleasure,
down unknown flights of enthused lore.
Startled by the prickly shifting breeze
that stirs the ground that shadows seize.
Upon the hill steely gate unfairly wrought!
‘Tis the place where her lover sought,
and bid her in the high of the night,
through misshaped gate, past blinking light,
past chiseled warriors and over cobbled bridge
to their first meeting place the old garden ridge.
In shivering skin she stubbornly waits
pondering naught why her lover is late.
Her innocent heart not broken nor bent
doth not see what impatience may invent.
A tidy minute leads to a weary score,
a guard’s hour, and then many more.
Now heavy lidded her frowning eyes
play witness to the changing of the skies.
The darkness fades to the colour of rum
as she wishes well for whatever did become  
of her lover, his kisses and knightly accord
to flatter her with the poetry she adored.
Her innocent heart somnolent and beset
lays its new pillow in the night of regret.
The dawning now bells jilted and wronged
for the girl was forgotten by the love that she longed.

NIGHTLIFE

Sunny days don't turn me on, but I like the rays they bring.
Moonlit nights do rock my world, and make me want to sing.

It may sound strange that I prefer the dusk more than the dawn.
It wakes up my mind and body, and a sudden energy comes on.

Some say it is depression, an avoidance of some sort.
I will beg to differ there, but many thanks for their support.

It is best described by me, as a peace the day can't give.
It does not seem chaotic, and there is more time to forgive.

The sounds I like also come at nighttime for some reason.
I prefer the crickets chirping, to an alarm clock any season.

Last but not least the romance seems to flourish at that hour.
Whether in the bed, the kitchen or my favorite - in the shower.

Sunny days don't turn me on, I do not need them to feel heat.
Moonlit nights do rock my world, and then the day's complete.

Lonely Rose Called Lene

Such smile so rare that fascinates me; 
Bestowed in the angel, not so long, I've known. 
Like a lightning that strikes in the middle of the day, 
In my heart I, quickly, built a home of her own. 
           
An angel I've known not from a friend or a dream, 
Who has teased me so gently to put-off my heartaches and pains. 
She just befell in my solitude as I try to rebirth. 
And helped me forget the troubles and the things that I hate. 

How I love to hold her and offer her a throne 
For to me she is regal and deserves to be crowned. 
Before I could do it she has transformed to a form, 
The angel is now a flower before the break of the dawn. 

Behold! A contest erupts among the bees in the field, 
To hover upon this new flower the sunrise revealed. 
I could only sigh to the heavens to send a rare summer rain 
To nourish and sustain this lonely rose called Lene. 


Time & Date Written: 
10:04pm - 10:33pm, 
February 17, 2008 

Dedicated to: A.T. whom I had the chance to chat in the net 
when I was in Phnom Phen, Cambodia. The poem is written just 
for you, my special friend, whether we've only known each 
other through the net or by subconscious circumstances. 
And when age wrinkles your lovely face, you can always claim 
that once upon a time an obscure poet had purposely written a 
poem just for you. 

It was a one-time conversation(February 10, 2008) but her story 
struck me to the bones that I vowed responsibility to protect her, 
anyhow, if ever I will have the chance to meet her personally. 
The above poem is written on imaginary impression of her that 
if she ever deferred her dark plans and have the chance to remember me, 
and read what I wrote, she will know that to me or perhaps to other 
people she is special, desirable, and deserving of a happy life too.

Dancing all around them.
Cautious of you fools.

I'm dancing in a toolbox.
Looking for some help.
Waiting for my parents;

YELLING for my friends.

Save me from these ends.

Save the Last Dance

Let not the needless noises from folks sound nice;
Let the virtuous voice of your vision be your spice.
Until you know how to shun the shield of shadow,
You may not see the reality of the rarest rainbow.

The county of critiques is a creative place to visit
But the seat of the scornful is a pleasant pit.
Flattery is the fools’ art of flaunting fairest flame;
No amount of praises can lend long legs to the lame.

Two eyes to behold life’s sweetest and sour sight;
Two ears to hear deary duels and duets of delight.
We are exposed to the echoes of edification and error
In a terrain with trail of tenderness and terror.

Books are but a blend of  bought and borrowed beliefs
And reading them may rouse resentment or relief.
The aura of human attitude: apathy or allure
Should not be the paint of your passionate picture.

Listen to the loud lyrics of lies, love, laws and life;
Hear the songs of soothing sensation and strife.
Yet you cannot blame anyone for your burnt or bloom,
Save the last dance, decide your own glory…or gloom!

False Prophets and True Hope

When searching you must take care
The answer is always out there

Even if it’s not what you are
It's ok it’ll only leave a scar

The truth hurts when it can’t justify
Everything you’ve done and you’re forced to ask why

Take comfort in the thought 
That you probably won’t be caught

God is watching everyone
You can’t be judged because you’ve already won

Religion is your veil
Subject the naïve and you’ll never fail

What would Jesus do,
If he were you?

Would he still be a martyr then?
Or would he be a footnote amongst the hearts of men?

It is our ambitions,
That can solve our ambitious contradictions

The problems we face
Are ours to erase

God only measures as high
As your will to survive

I Still Love You

I love you, and always will You loved me once but that was only thrill: For you went and left me for another, To fend for myself and let my feelings smother. We were best friends, but that was changed, When you told me you didn’t want to feel deranged, Because your other thought we were together, And your other wanted to be forever With you, without me, I still don't know why, you allowed that to be. And now, my heart has ached, I have moved on, For you left me, and tossed me like a baton. So with my ending words I say, I love you, and still do, to this very day.

Ah, pray to God to bless a heart and flame!      

When fear enters your heart, continue to fight;
if strength and faith die out, cry out and wait. 

Aren't friends in search of one who grows in love?
Aren't they the ones who stay and never leave? 

Why hold on time, and not give as they give;
are some afraid to take long steps for growth?

A slaughter so brutal, a murder so beautiful

The mind of an art.

A mastermind in the least.

Tearing out hearts.

A murdererous beast.

To think they'll find them.

Hidden so well.

Do all be condemmed?

To suffer as I dwell?

Sure I feel bad, maybe seldom.

As I walk over their bodies.

To think who'dve held them?

Not to care, in the very very least.

To keep a strong mind, a murder in the beast.

The search goes on, they'll never find them.

Hidden so well, but should all be condemmed?

Not me, not me- my stomach soaks lightly.

Hands and a mind, guilt is slightly.

The art of murder, a mastermind at rest.

I've slaughtered them all, brutal at my best.

The scene now grey, and my hunger is fed.

To know now all, those bastards are dead.

Rhymes Are Fun

Anytime I rhyme, I climb, ascending higher and higher
It clarifies life, it fuels my fire

Words constantly cycling through my head
Some I made up, most have already been said

Like: feather, wall, brick, or tambourine
Question! How much for that submarine?

Back to el point; writing, specifically in rhymes, purifies my mind
It centers my soul, bringing me closer to the divine

I Have

I have seen you bare through my dream fuelled eyes
I have stroked your breasts my hands ran down your thighs

I have kissed your nape my hands ran through your hair
I have touched your heart for into my eyes you stared

I have been beside you for many many years
I have watched you laugh and even wiped your tears

I have dreamt in awe in memory of what I've seen
I have confirmed to me that your everything I dreamed

The Monster

The monster became a living, walking nightmare
my dive into insanity, no longer perfect, containing a blank stare

I should resist, the monster will find me, run away with me
Pretend to hear my meager complaints, force me to see what I'm afraid to see

Blame and guilt, volleying right and left, up and down
It's crashing me closer, with every step, I'm falling to the ground

It's all a game, just play along, play the game, play it well
Brimming confidence, dissolved in thoughts, of what? I won’t tell

Demons, devil born souls, run quick, run fast, stand my ground
No sense of fear, n sense of foreboding, not even a slight sound

High speed, pursuit of hell, bent on going, bent on crashing
Giving into the power, life's faster, lights flashing

Crash and torment me again, my eyes close after all
The beginning of the end for me, feeling numb after the fall

Is there a way out? I'm different, distant and moved on
Listen to the water, calling, coaxing into death, I'm gone

Endless, empty cloud; dreamless oblivion; oxygen, exhalation
Am I dead? Still alive? Broken into pieces, I need motivation

Reality closes in, walls me in; until there’s nothing there
Death comes behind me, containing a blank stare.

When words are Lost

I am trying to find the words to say,
The ones that dismantle feelings of dismay,
The ones that cut chords from youthless graves,
The ones your prophets said would save,
I am trying to get the courage to finally stand,
Still, and firm with might in my hands,
But the more I try the more I fail,
Surrendering is the only way to begin this tale,

Light overwhelms my darkest days,
As joy floods all bareness, I begin to sing your praise,
For the "I" in me is what needs to be set free,
You’re the one in control of my destiny,
Only selfless cries will bring about this change,
The wilderness is where all the brokenness,
Is rearranged.

I am trying to find the time to express,
All the anxiety’s that tug me into depressed,
I am trying to convey emotions from the heart,
Praying that when you hear them you won’t rip me apart,
For my whole life I’ve lived amongst sinking ships,
That it’s become second nature to constantly slip,
But I reach out my hand to the sunset this night,
And you greet me with words that allow my spirit to ignite,

Light overwhelms my darkest days,
As joy floods all bareness, I begin to sing your praise,
For the "I" in me is what needs to be set free,
You’re the one in control of my destiny,
Only selfless cries will bring about this change,
The wilderness is where all the brokenness,
Is rearranged.

So I’m slowing down and letting go,
Allowing the river to simply flow,
Slowing down, so all will see
That Gods mighty hand is the one saving me.

Fulfilled

A moment lost but burned deep into memories,
Unfulfilled until fate crossed paths and ecstasies,
Compressed energy, our tension, long overdue,
The thrill, the heat, agony, our hands explore you,
Soft exhale from your lips, blood rushing through my skin,
Fingers will find again and again and again,
Pleasure subsides with a gasp from teeth and the sting,
Taking what you need from me, wanting, and giving,
I’m drunk on honey so sweet and shared with a kiss,
Your eyes enter mine as we become one with bliss,
The tips of softest skin sucked gently till it numbs,
The anticipation and blessing when it comes.
Fantasies fulfilled.

TURNING DOWN THE SHEET

Feminine nature and dominant speed.
Sweet surrender and futile in need.

Empty pages of frivolous lore.
Navigation necessary to explore.

Breaking the tide; neglecting the heart.
Shallow from fear still she did impart.

Polished and bright in the evenings allure.
Insensitive design and intentions impure.

Gladly they wait for her exquisite retreat.
Haughty she'll watch as they turn down the sheet.

Fearless Point of View

The fear of failure got me scared,
like my talent and God are not really there.
Constantly drowning in a sea of doubt,
as I’m afraid to tap into my potential and rise above the clouds.
Inside me, personal ignorance builds a wall around my mind,
blocking the streams of light that stop me from walking blind.
But what fear fails to learn,
is the self-taught courage that frees me to yearn.
The will to thrive beyond the worry.
and the humbleness to know; I’ll never be God
but I shall forever succeed through His glory.
The future is an unknown place for me and you,
but we will make it through,
if we always keep a fearless point of view.

Promise Me

Promise me that you wont cry,
When my time comes to say goodbye. 

Promise me that my ashes will set free,
Drifting slowley in the endless sea.

Promise me you will always laugh,
While remembering our good times in the past.

Promise me to walk in the night,
Knowing dark is as good as light.

Promise me that you will stay strong,
Never let go, and always hang on.

Promise me that your heart will set free,
For this is not the end, but the begining, of me.

Dawn

The dawn of my life came late in the day
She turned darkness to light for me I can say
Her light burns brighter than the shining sun
Befor we even met I knew she was the one
you see she is the woman I have dreamed of 
you have probably dreamed of her to 
I thank God that I met her 
all my dreams have come true
her name Is Dawn Carole and she makes my heart sing
Her love surrounds me just like saturns great ring
now I am her moon and she is my sun like a solar eclipse
We'll be joined into  one

Magical Notes

This is my joy,my deep desire;
my imagination catches fire.

Turn the tunes up nice and loud
to chase away each darkening cloud.

Or sit and strum on my guitar;
a wondrous way to spend an hour!

Sometimes write new lyrics down
or blow my kazoo like a clown!

Singing along loud as can be;
this is happiness to me.

Listen to country,rock and blues;
so many genres from which to choose.

I love them all to some degree;
they sound so beautiful to me.

Several instruments I play
gets me jiving every day!

Without my music I couldn't thrive;
I dance around and feel alive!

How can some folks do without it?
Music's my life,no doubt about it!

Soul Of A ROMANTIC, Life Of A CUB FAN

There isn't much difference in being a ROMANTIC,
Than there is is watching the CUBS latest antics.

You have to love life on some level, you see,
To believe that the CUBS will not continue to go Pennant Free!

So, deep down inside you summon all the love you have,
Keeping it buried, except for being  what you believe.

I have always been a CUB FAN, sometimes in tears,
As "Wait 'Til Next Year", has forever been in my ears.

But I have followed this team thru thick and thin,
Feeling the pain and bearing it with a grin.

The ROMANTIC me sees them winning the Series one day,
The CUB FAN in me knows that is far, far away.

Their play has not been that extraordinary,
So, it tends to make us CUB FANS more than wary.

But then there are days when they flash-bang a team with hits,
And slap leather on the ball when it gets close to their mitts.

The big thing about CUB FANS is their "ROMANTIC" side,
Our hearts are big, we love much, and have little to hide.

There are those who scoff at our team's play,
But ROMANTICally we know that will all change one day.

Because the field they play on is one of the best,
We continue to hope that the team does the rest.

We are proud of our team but I've heard people laugh,
Like husband and wife, only CUB FANS can give them the gaff.

I wake each day during seasonal play,
Wondering what my team will do that day.

I look for big scores, no hitters, and more,
Most of the time I get really sore.

Not so much in a physical way,
But the ROMANIC in me sure gets a play.

The team will rock my foundations to the core,
When I find out how they let the other guys score.

So the emotional side of CUB FANS is real,
And has to be charged anew each day with ROMANTIC zeal.

That is why you'll see me write what I do,
Whether it's about my team or my life too.

I won't say it's easy being a CUB FAN in life,
But the ROMANTIC in me helps to get thru the strife.

Just remember that "hopeless" is not something you say,
When talking about the CUBS, at least not facing my way.

I know they haven't won a World Series since before most were alive,
They haven't even been in it...since 1945.

But we CUB FANS continue to hope and pray,
That our team will again, be there one day.

It's the ROMANTIC in me that says to you,
As my veins run full of only CUBBIE blue.

Smile, laugh, or think me crazy if you like,
The ROMANTIC soul that governs the life of this CUB FAN will tell you to just "Take A Hike"!

Sudbury Circles

300 circles of Sudbury lakes

looping and winding in all different makes.

Rising and falling as crust on a bread,

to cooling and stalling when yeast's at a head.

Coming in swells of white bubbled zest,

to finally receding that drying is left.

Warm in the shallows and cool the deep

while hugging the wind and sun for heat

Sudbury circles; water or ice

Passion for Nature

Although my lover’s gone, my passion has been reborn Nature takes my breath away; flowers our gardens adorn Wildflowers of brilliant hues were seeded by the state Now their blossoms add beauty to the interstate Hiking five miles to see a New Hampshire waterfall 'Neath its gentle spray on slippery rocks I did crawl A stronger sense of patriotism seems to grow As an eagle flies o'er amber fields of wheat below Forests beckon too, and if you remain very still A clan of deer might appear, giving you quite a thrill But the ocean will transport my mind to fantasy A seafaress dreams of creatures living in the sea When the walls of my house close in, I just step outside To become one with nature, it’s here I must reside For when enclosed, it’s the beauty of nature I miss The mountains, sea and forests provide a state of bliss

The Vampire

She was a maiden with long red hair
A delicate monster to a heart filled with fear
Binding as one as he lays on her lap
As if he was taking an eternal nap
Love was strong but the pain was deeper
Did he know that she was a reaper?
The sense of desire was in the room
Complicated emotions felt like doom
A deadly attraction none can resist
The journey to death that couldn’t desist
Darkness overcomes the day
Shadows came and won’t go away
Alienated from the world, embraced in deception
Emptiness covered their hearts as they lived in corruption
He searched for comfort and found peace in her
She held him in her arms wishing they can last forever
Blood flooded up the place
Memories, none to erase
The vampire with a sorrowful heart
A relationship that will break apart
The lovers trap is love and passion
A gentle touch, a painful affection
Hearts slowly dying, one by one
With a suffering that will never be gone

Painting: Vampire (1895) - by Edvard Munch

Hesitant

Hesitant feet on uncertain ground.
A hesitant heart making no sound.
Daring to beat too hard and too fast.
Daring to dream and pray love will last.

Butterfly tingles, senses reel:
Dare I tell him how I feel?

Eyes veiled with longing;
An empty hand grasps ~
For a chance at tomorrow
And his love to last.

SERENITY RESPONSE

Creating change

The crux of the matter
Do I bend or do I break?

Willow knows the truth
She may weep besides waters deep

But she drinks in courage to face the future
And bends when winds do blow

And in her serenity - she survives
'She accepts the things she cannot change'

The Power of You

Human nature the epitome of despair
Ask around, does anybody care?

The submissive to the strong and the strong to the circumstance
Historically falling into the same traps by chance

Prove a point by looking the other way
Or step-up and change today

The problem with living in this Democracy?
We can’t see the walls when we assume we’re free

When simple ideas are fed with simple lies
The power overwhelms the opposition’s cries

We live to love
Some obsessed with the power above

The power of faith can blind
Sometimes true answers are harder to find

Criticism is an instinct
Try to slow down and think

The ideal for you 
Can’t always be true

The world can’t change overnight
But we’ll never know if we never try

He Who is Not Loved

       
Has a cold sad heart,
Winding down like a clock with its parts,
The days and years are shorter,
They would be longer if he is a courter,
Those hearts are lost in winterstorms,
Snowflakes falling into nothingness that mourn,
With trees that follow with their permanent shades,
Killing hearts slowly with branches that are blades,
Those weary souls that cry at night,
Trapped in hell by hearts that never see light,
And when that love door is opened wide,
Hearts will mingle and walk with stride,
They pet and pet love set free,
Comforting under bright hot suns colossally,
That love that stare’s in the face,
Will make men whole on this earthly place,
Pollen blowing through the air,
Unleashed by pistols fired everywhere without despair,
To depart this world with seeds left behind,
A man’s lot is love immortal and she is kind.

Living With Lakes

Oh; how our lakes; do circle our reach.

In circles of puddles beyond our belief.

Halting for shorelines that make up their seams;

'till rising above them through rivers and streams.

Surrounded by ribbits of green bumpy frogs,

all woven through reeds by wet bumpy logs.

While sliders of Junebugs will turn in each arc

with legs shifting water like fins of a carp.

As winds of the water break waves to come in,

in meeting the shore in waves that have been.

So picture our lakes as healthy and fun

where Living With Lakes has just begun.

The Minds Elusive Light

To die, to hope, to love, to give
To fight, to hurt, to want, to live

Life as a star, scorching heat, burning bright
Under the sun, scorching heat, reflecting light

Angels and demons all burn by flame
Illuminated, they are the same

Under the sun, within the mind
We are one, light leaves us blind

Compare and contrast, how long will we last?
Slow to fast, quickly, before we're passed

By our morals, convictions, the sun above
By our zeal, ambition, the moonlight love

Swallowed instead by our stubborn lethargy
Consumed, mislead, by our comatose apathy

Do not rely on the sun to always give
Do not lean on light, life eternally to live

Time is long, life is short, passion even less
Reason can be sound, memory can be stout, the mind can regress

Choices can be wrong, life is short, plans turn to mess
Answers can be found, decision and doubt, chance prone to guess

Spend wisely your brief life, utilize passion to find purpose
Remain fluid and elusive, overcome weakness, pursue your bliss

You are incredible, and from one through ten, you're an eleven!
Every sweet inch so edible, like manna from Heaven!

My Beautiful Escape

The image of your face in my memory resides, 
and now after all you are by my side.

Every night I stare at the moon, 
hoping I will meet you soon.

Loving you makes me see things better, 
now I see beauty in words and letters.

Your silky smooth skin is so soft, 
a piece of heaven, you were cut off.

Your eyes more beautiful than a rainbow, 
shinning a new color everywhere they go.

Your eyelashes that beat so magically 
hold together the secret to your mystery.

Your nose structured like a work of art, 
forever you will rest in my heart.

Your lips so irresistibly sweet 
a passionate kiss when our lips meet.

Your teeth arrange to form a perfect smile 
that brings me happiness all the time.

Your hair like rivers and waterfalls flow, 
it is behind the reason why I love you so.

The curves of your body are irresistible; 
it makes my heart so weak and vulnerable.

Your voice that is safe keeps me calm, 
and your arms around me will keep me warm.

It’s very beautiful how our souls perfectly fit, 
and how your beauty in the darkness lit.

My only wish is for you to be, 
forever and ever here beside me.

And no matter what sad thoughts put a frown on my face, 
you were, you are, and you always will be…my beautiful escape

SORROW PIT

     
   THE SORROW PIT

Sorrow burned so deep a hole
His feet had disappeared--
Designed a ladder to escape--
Its rungs were elegantly devised of secret
Midnight tears.

Survival drove him upward--
Escaped with his last breath—
Ached for her in every bone,
A fool, he taunted death.

Dreamed of her at dawning
Her hair wild disarray---
Wept for her when waking
And cursed the break of day

By chance he rode a whirlwind,
Jumped the ladder to success
Where this climb would lead--
He didn't mind the mess.

His children were a sea away
Beyond his wildest reach
And every lesson he had learned
He had no chance to teach.

If the course of love is pain
Sparsely Spiced with hints of glory, 
To him, Life seems a thankless meal--
Best digested in a story.

The Cat's Meow And Then Some

Mr. Kitty Cat come this way.
Might I beg you please to stay?

So all-fired handsome, fit and strong.
And you've been faithful all along.

Those eyes so green and silky coat.
How you sing out and emote!

Prowling through the dead of night.
Bringing me gifts at morning's light.

You're such a vision to behold.
Always passionate-never cold.

Appreciative of the things I do-
this trait of yours is something new.

I've never had a love so deep.
Hoping you are mine to keep.

But wait-I've had an awful thought.
You've set a trap and now I'm caught.

This love will never come to fruition.
For in the past I had a mission.

Had you neutered to my regret.
When you could have been my best love yet!

Just the Two of Us

My body trembles at your slightest touch
You know that I want you so much
You know what that does to me
When you caress the inside of my knee
And your moving fingertips inspire
My body to become a smoldering fire
Another lover could never touch
Places that you thrill so much
In your arms, I can not deny
The desire that I feel inside
Your long kisses make me weak
I’m so moved, I can hardly speak
It is a wonder we can stand the heat
Generated when our two bodies meet
Our passions flare up so easily
You satisfy every need in me
Don’t want to ever set you free
We belong together, can’t you see
Just the two of us through eternity

Amazing Grace

Amazing grace is my soul’s sweetest story.
I found my faith in Him… at the cross of Calvary.
Amazing grace, my redeemer’s rhapsody,
I saw eternal life, listening to this melody.
Amazing grace leads my spirit’s saintly sound,
And raised my sinking soul from the gory ground
Amazing grace gave life its sweet rendition.
Through heaven’s spiritual gift, you brought redemption.
Amazing grace! The angels hail hosanna. 
Let me be in the blessed band to sing hallelujah!
Amazing grace! God bestowed glow and glory.
Love raised Christ from death to change my sorry story
Amazing grace is the spring of life and love.
It flows to man from that glorious garden above

Thus do men –roam with nature’s Sappho-rhythm--Yearning, yearning

Spiraling –throbbing--- perpetual sensations—Burning, burning
Hot despair-- escaped-- from siren-bred mad-delight

		Run did I until the flaming coals were crystaled ice

			Until food forever lost all hope of spice

neglecting…Forgetting….. in manly pride
                     a Fool, I flee, and with it take my learning……

                       I 
                    hide
		                   
Replace the ‘ tales’ of truth with modern, learned’, 
Mighty Strategies of War

	Now, my mistaken bloody price is paid, and
                   	Dread defeat lurks heartless at my door.

Penelope—I have none-- weaving waiting clothes
No wife or lover steadfast lingering in repose
I make a life of blood and war
Leave homeless families-- play no favorites-- rich or poor

I am no lowly man--these hands wield swords
My fate would have me scorn the simple deeds--
The tying and untying ropes and cords
the gathering of fruit or pulling wretched’ weeds

These hands serve words and promises a world and sea away
 This heart has lost its voice and fades this soul a bit each passing day

Bedfellows Grief and Sorrow

My Vanquished men 
Now a band in Shades of grey
		If only I had stopped their precious ears today
		Immune they would have been to Siren’s song

On me the Fault, on me-- the prideful Wrong

DARING TO COMPARE MODERN LIFE TO JOB

DARING TO COMPARE MODERN LIFE TO JOB


If you think it’s disrespect

And to me you do object

Remember each soul has its grief

Being judge is like a thief



How can one soul judge another

One will grieve the loss of mother

One will long for dying child

Neglected  sister has gone wild


Each soul bears its crying pain

As ‘neighbors' keepers' we remain

Here to comfort those who suffer

Here to be their earthly buffer


As small children this we learn

but as we age so deftly spurn---

We're called to view each suffering face

And put ourselves in each one’s place.

The Rising

These damned temptations; they haunt me day and nigh.
Rooted from the deepest depths of hell, where even angels cry.

The unending taunt of which I cannot refuse;
The promising of joy, and yet I continue to lose.

I pray emphatically, for an extraction from these mares;
Just a brief escape from the infinite snares.

I cannot ask for help, for if they know I am shunned,
And yet they look down at me, as if their conscience were stunned.

I have recently found a plan of action however,
And pain it will bring as joy will be severed.

For this joy is false as a loosened saddle;
And the only way out is to head into battle.

Brown Eyes

Brown eyes the desire of many
and a description of your beauty
matching streaks so very alluring
a face as yours is reassuring
a stern face, silent yet I can her
can see but not touch wish I was there
lay side by side with you, lay with me
in that moment one thing you would see 
you and I are complimentary
me with you the fairest poetry

Write On

Some save innocent people's lives.
Some get honey from bee hives.
One was famed for coming and healing, 
One was famed for painting a ceiling.
Loves and passions are never far from sight,
Same as mine. As for me, I write.

Free Hearts

My sky is black and so is yours,
The cold sea rushes upon our shores.

I love you dear, we'll run away,
We'll run until our heart fades grey.

Their love is lost but ours is here,
We'll save our love throughout the years.

And as we confess our true love,
Our black sky stares from up above.

The sky is jealous of our pair,
She's jealous of the love we share.

But she cant hurt us, don't you see,
We'll run away until we're free.

Carpe Noctem

They confine us to the dark,
So we will seize the night.
Shadows full and beautiful,
Full moon and pale starlight.

Closing eyes with parting lips,
And drawing final breath.
Drawing blood and lines of love,
Awoken in this death.

Pleasure, drowning, lost in you,
My skin lays bitten, bare.
The sweetest suffocation,
I’m loving, lacking air.

The moon has left me Lycan,
And you're allowed to bite.
They confine us to the dark,
So we will seize the night.

The Wayward Pilgrim

Wayward pilgrims scattered and lost
Frightened beings, low on rations, slowed by frost

Searching for the holy land they wandered astray
Despite prayers for help, they can't but doubt that they'll see another day

They left with so much zeal and hope, so much faith
They felt passion and mirth, they were convinced the lord would keep them safe

They no longer know where they are and the path to travel
Their spirits are tested, their sanity slowly begins to unravel

Some are lost to the thought that God is everything, nothing else exists
Others give in to base survival instincts as it becomes harder to resist

Crisis of the faithful, the beautiful and the damned
It's the answer to challenge that truly reveals every woman and man

Wake Up Sleepy Head

Pegasus of thy night
Take me away from this eartly plight

Lay down your golden reigns
Let me climb aboard your mythical train

Stars and moon's cresant's dance
Illuminating to others who gets this chance

Gold dust sprinkles in your hair
Closed eyes for take me there

Up Up and away we go
Pegasus take it nice and slow

Lustrious valleys and sno-capped peaks
Sparkling blue waters for which I seek

Just you and me my mountain friend
Taking this journey till the very end

As I lay my head upon your shoulders
For I feel their turning so much colder

Cannot feel from my head to foot
This dust sprinkle had turn to soot

I'm decending fast and furious
Woke up from dream being more curious

Soul revival

From the deepest shadows
To my hidden sorrows
In a land full of disease
Where the fire cannot cease
A place where a lonely sin
Desire within
Hunts my lust
Throwing me into the dust

And when I wake up from your dream
Wishing you'd be my greatest sin
I lose my actions and my destiny
My desire to be your mistery
And bow upon my chosen fate
And my desire to be your mate

And now a lonely child is born
With no desire to watch porn
Society bans him
With the desire to be mean
He desires Everything
But there is no such thing
He outsmarts Everyone
Yet he loves No One
He commited greatest sin
To have no desire within
Loneliness and lack of passion
Made his heart enjoy no fashion

But there is someshe in his brain
One she which fights in vain the pain
Killing the beast which has the right
To have his life and throw no light

Togetherness is wrong

She says she loves me but she is not there. 
When together our hearts is never clear. 
As we walk on our midnight strolls. 
Hands are together but feeling so cold.

Wanting the feeling of the first time.
But really knowing I am being left behind.

Souls is crushing fading away.
Togetherness is wrong.
Why do we stay.

Please dont fall Asleep

Wake up America, 
Arise from your slumber
Media has desensitized your minds
We live in a new world of technology that has made you colorblind
Meaningless, with deeper meaning
Music lyrics have been subconsciously stealing
While you think it’s the beat you are feeling
Listen to the words and then tell me if it’s still appealing
Even Movies have brainwashed your judgment of what’s ok
Too many people are sitting back, watching our ethics slip away.
The Government has helped us all too simply learn to accept
While gradually breaking down the family structure, many have just slept.
No longer can we allow these planted seeds of lies to continue to grow
This is real reality, not some entertainment show
Our children are not aware
That their future is in for a scare
Our youth are looking for role models and leaders
They have become susceptible to idolize bottom feeders
Wake up America,
We need a real change
Bring back integrity, morals and stop being estrange
They keep us busy in televised drama 
Currently immune, with no proper armor
While people are starving and walking around half alive
They are plotting our nation’s permanent demise
Sex trafficking is at a an all-time high
Wealthy men are raping young girls in America and when they are done with them they watch them die!
Poverty and greed is causing drug dealers to lead
A generation of angry lost young man
Creating baby’s that start the cycle again
The more eyes that now see
The more we can be
Brought back to truth and sanity
The rich are getting richer and the working class have grown tired
Democracy is being set on fire
You may question what you can do
If everyday each person changed just one view
We would be able to recover what has been lost and start bran new
The people need to take a stand and vote like they really care
We must join together, use our voice, and remind them we are still there.

warm in your dew

every morning is drenched in your perfume
the city in your presence lowers the volume

wrap your hand in mine so your touch can ignite my senses
inhale with me nature’s joy pass the white picket fences

through the clover fields we’ll run against the fresh breeze
we’ll free our restraints and laugh sick to our bellies

nestle and anchor me to your own private flight of fancy 
trip me a flyway of buttermilk sky frothy and creamy

cradle me in the soothe of your keep
sing me tender to a dove-like sleep

Misunderstanding Planets

Cognitive ability beyond educated theory

The strive to know, the strive to grow

People like planets, grouped into galaxies
Knowledge constantly streaming, truths and fallacies

Misunderstanding turns into conflict
Religion tried to solve this, the results have been... mixed

Silly planet people don't they know that many galaxies make up one universe?
I know this message is mostly ignored but I will never cease to sing this verse

Natural Charm

How eloquent, you move your arms,
It's clear to see your natural charm.

That cause my heart to be alarmed -
And wonder can it be of harm.

Shinning like a golden dollar,
Looking like a new pressed collar.

While saying words to flatter me,
Coming from those smooth-lips, I see.

Seductive, full and luscious too,
I find it quite charming of you.

Though, I not dare to say in words,
Not sure, at all, you're of this world.

With eyes so eager to enchant,
While piercing with a slightly slant.

Able to sink a fleet of ships,
Commanded by those slim, firm hips.

With hair that look and smell so clean,
On such a body  - very lean.

Oh, I must have you in my arms -
So, I  may feel your natural charm.

Fishing Salmon

Sun shinning cool breeze river water.
Lake glass underneath shaded trees swimming otter.

Wondering if the fish is ever to going bite.
Line in water with a non floating bobber gripping just right.

Bait on tight waiting impatiently. 
Wishing for a strike from the greatest of Kings.

Soon will be a battle between me and fish.
Experiences will tell when I eat that salmon dish.

Euphoria

Euphoria is grand
Not the drug induced brand
But the genuine high
When you’re ruling the sky
When your body pulsates
Nothing else compensates
Everything falls away
There’s no night and no day
Just that moment in time
When each touch is sublime
Your whole body’s ablaze
The surrounding’s a haze
Psychedelic it seems
You’re living the dreams
And you know this is real
The ecstasy you feel
You don’t want it to end
There’s no way to pretend
Then the world stops to spin
And you know it’s a sin
But you want your next fix
Of his love’s magic mix
Euphoria is grand
I mean LOVE’S special brand.

Power versus Sanity

Literally lying to millions just prove a point
We can’t conceive of victory unless we have someone to anoint

The idolization of mythic heroes is a constant story
We can all take part of this myth and receive the glory

For better or for worse we are humans 
We choose to feel better than every other, banking on our base demand!

We can’t all be right, surge of the insane
We are inconsistent creatures just trying to stay sane

This is the human race, take it or leave it
We fight hard, reasonable or not, it’s win or quit

Someone take me away

I want to be lifted
high in the air like the gifted
i want to fly to a land
where these acts are banned
so no one can see
then me and you could be free
to do as we please
a sin to others that believe
we'll feel happy and high
but the moment wont last
because privacy is the past
so i sigh and lie
"This will have to be a good-bye"

Rest In My Arms

“Rest in my arms”
Sometimes it’s hard to put my heart into words
As you lift my spirit higher and I soar with the birds
You bring me to levels of unearthly love
Where time seems to stop from this gift from above

God joined our hearts and I can’t say why
But when he speaks through my words I know I can not lie
And I know in your fear it sometimes gets hard
But I will love you until you put down your guard

And when you do this you will see nothing but love
As you rest in my arms and fit me like a glove   
I swell up with joy to just sit in your space
And know you have all of me with Gods precious grace

So surrender to me and let’s fly together
Knowing with me there is no stormy weather
The mysteries of the Universe seen simple and clear
So let go of your past, worries, and fear

So rest in my arms and know its forever
And only when God calls me is when we won’t be together
So now you know in my final plea
Rest in my arms and enjoy life with me

Egypt!

I know I haven’t been there yet,
It’s the one thing that I do regret;

There’s no place I would rather go
Such history from so long ago

Someday I will make that trip,
Maybe by plane, maybe by ship;

To see the Pyramids and the Sphinx,
Abu Simbel and the “missing link’s”;

To visit Luxor and Valley of the Kings,
Egypt is filled with so many things;

From Giza to Karnak and Abusir,
To Saqqara and the Oasis of Ahm Shere;

I can’t wait to see them all up close,
Of Egypt I need a healthy dose;

I’m saving up to travel there,
Readying my mind - so much to prepare;

So many places in Egypt to see,
The only thing missing there is me;

Dreamers in Dreams

Eyes in dream shall meet, as they lie on silken sheets 
Where lips in moisten touch, caress in loving greet

Where hands address undulations, curved shapes of he and she
On silken sheets where they lie, in wonderful tenderly

In pause I kiss your lobes, you nape, your porcelain skin 
Two hearts in tender touch, both welcomed from within

On the coldest of nights, we held in warm embrace
Our faces touching softly, in our private loving place

On separate lands we walk, but dreams can be the same
Maybe some day one day, we walk the same loving plain

Interrupted Reading

Her knuckles bend, they don't pretend, beneath her head plopped in pale dread
Tucked tween these both an ear relieved from being grieved, both eyes near dead

Slouched where she dreams she merely leans, foreign sounds invade the fable
That preoccupies her state of mind as she reads near the table

The palm with which she grips adventure now lies limp upon her lap
It's hostage near released, with spine all creased, yet private flap to flap

Upon her cheeks no glimmer, tightly drawn lips dimmer than dry sands
Her whispering twin tornado tunnels funnel huffing reprimands

What draws her sight, what steals an ear and makes pompous this quiet girl?
Why does her charm befall decay; why does bitter a prude unfurl? 

Her grace befalls corruption by a swiftly knocking eruption
Followed by brassy squeaks twisting, breaching thought; this interruption!

Cat's Breath

You are the cat that stole my breath.
I was deep in sleep when you snuck in.

Your sleek body crouched down
and crept up, just like your kin.

You pounced on my soul like paper
to be played with by a house cat.

I let your spirit take the bite.
I let myself become the toy mouse

filled with catnip, for your pleasure.
I knew you needed my healing

and I had plenty of energy to give.
Foolishly, I thought I had no feelings.

Congragulations

Excitement is running through my mind at this point,
It is hard to control so much 

When something so honorable,
Happens to come across

For me personally,
It was the proposition

From a contest by,
World Poetry Movement

In which I entered in,
And received a letter back

Stating that my poem,
Had made it to the next level

But that is not all,
Oh no

What's more is that they informed me,
That they were publishing that very poem

In a book titled "Stars In Our Hearts"
Which is to be published in August this year

I hope each and every one who happens to read this,
May read my poem "The Beat of the Heart"

In the book.
Thank You.

Carryout Box

Noodle dinner, Italian restaurant
we leave half the food on the plate.
I'm not full but I want to leave
I say, "I'm tired and it's late."

learning about your encounters.
"What are you thinking?" I smile
Unsure, the fork twirls leftovers.

Slave of Love

To my love of yesterday, I declare.
My notion of what is fair.
To my love of days gone by,
I promise never to lie.
To my love as a child,
I vow never to be wild.
To my love of the present days,
I truly give all my loving ways.
To my love of future time,
I pray I do no crime.
To all my loves, I hereby say.
My heart was yours everyday.
My devotion was always sincere.
Along with my soul so near.
I devote and will my spirit to all.
I give it freely as a personal thrall.

I wrote this right after I got married for the fourth time, is was my way of saying to myself within that there are so many different ways to love and share love.

There You Were

This morning when I awakened, there you were,

Just like the clock and nightstand over there.

I couldn't reach out, touch or embrace you,

My thoughts of you were rich and true.

I could smell your fragrance, fresh and sweet,

Which caused my heart to rapidly beat.

As I laid there, motionless and consumed,

By the thoughts that I naturally assumed.

I wondered why you looked so radiant and peaceful,

As if you were in a place that was very special.

A place that I hoped you and I shared,

Of a time that proved how much we cared.

We shared, we cared and we loved so deeply,

I listened to how you breathed so sweetly.

There on your face and in your quiet sound,

You reached out and it was I  you found.

Are You What You Do?

Is there some task you do so well, That, for it, you'd go through Hell, So close to you, it's become a part Of you, like your heart? If, for you, the answer's “Yes,” You might as well confess, Friends will find out soon enough, From that, you can't hide, or bluff! When you are the thing you do, Others know the story of you, You can't lie, or try to hide it! Family and friends won't long abide it! That you're focused isn't bad, For your passion, just be glad, Some folks breathe, but never thrive, Hard to tell that they're alive! If you are completely driven, No other path are you given, You must do what you must do, Because your love is part of you! Cheetahs cannot change their spots, For, all over they have dots, Stealth is not the game they're in, So they have to race to win! And so it should be for you, To thine own self be true, You’ll not please all in the land, At the end of day, raise your hand And say, that this is how I must, Live until I turn to dust, And maybe even longer My love grows always stronger! Though you might try to disguise it, Most will soon realize it, That you are a person of passion, Though that might not be in fashion!

Each thought of you takes flight

crushing the bones in the feet of desire
snapping back shoestrings of love ever higher-

The Value of homelessness

Just because you have no home,
Does not make you any less,
You are still apart of this human race,
Whether you live in a mansion or a mess.

It’s such a shame to see your life go down the drain,
But you still hang in there strong,
You drench in the cold rain,
While singing your hopeful song.

I sometimes think of what you would have been like before,
 I suppose no different to who you are today,
Material possessions can't make you any more,
They just get in the way.

It’s not in my hands to rescue you,
Though I wish it could be,
Remember I’m the one who is trapped,
And you are the one who is free.

At least now you know the value of a stone,
The pricelessness of a crumb,
The fear of being alone,
Facing the end, if it shall ever come.

But one day your dreams shall build your home,
Then your sleepless fearful nights will be gone,
But in the mean time you keep hanging on.

Johnny 's Song

He was born to sing upon his land
Now he's resting in God's Everlasting hands

Didn't matter who you were
That voice you'll remember for sure

A voice that could shed many a tear
Or make you just want to stand up and cheer

Oh how'll I miss this one hell of a man
Made me today of who I am

Across oceans far and wide
Johnny sang his songs with passionated pride

Now he soars amidst his eagle friends
High above the rockies bends

Oh Johnny this song's for you
As I sing about your eagle friends too

Worthy Mountains

I think of mountains moved and souls crushed
I think of hurdles cleared and dreams rushed

Lost Opportunities

I should have chosen honesty,
as away from me, I now see how much you meant to me.
The tender touch often given to my skin so frequently,
now mirrors a distant past in this circumstance of common grief.
The colour of truth couldn’t begin to dye these darkened blues,
as my heart is decomposing from your wretched news.
Un-answered questions become the theme to my awful excuse,
sleepless nights recalling mistaken words is all that is left to do.

x

If only I could escape this prison of regret,
and begin to break free from the image of our broken silhouette.
Only then shall life become as beautiful as the sunset,
living an existence of joy, too powerful for sadness to forget.
Yet my insecurities left me too weak to say “I need you”,
leaving feelings aside in the hope you’d say “I need you too”.
My transparent tears cried out for the truth to pierce through,
but as a man, I was taught to never leave emotion as a clue.
In the mist of sorrow, swollen pride is all that is left,
recollecting past memories, my mind unwillingly kept.

x

No amount of breath could ever reach the pain of my depth,
wishing responsible errors could be wiped clean from my debt.

Working in the Dark

I feel like I've dug a hole so deep it's better to distract myself from the fact that 
I'm dwelling in it
I create while I live underground, buried but not dead. I slowly dig tunnels, 
looking for a way out, I won't quit

I contract from fear too often and I'm starting to understand why. I'm afraid of 
failure and success, which freezes me in limbo
I expand in short moments of grandeur, not long enough to take a stand but 
long enough to reassure that I should not go

I've learned that passion is worth fighting for, beneath the crushing weight, the 
misguided hate, I know I have the potential to be great
I've learned that life is worth dying for, as I stagger through the darkness, finding 
my way; I must help myself and elevate

Civil War

Cant sit nor stand without looking over my shoulder,
I hear the beat of the drum, the war is closer.
Feel it’s rumble, so close to home,
It shakes hard on my heart,
It’s here, in this room.
An explosion of passion lights up the sky,
But with each new color, my heart withers inside.
Irrational attack, my weakness,
Surprise.
A lengthy civil war,
The world translucent through teary eyes.
Tremble and wait, 
There is no escape.
An attack on the mind, I fold and I quake.
Heart in pieces, confusion, 
Is it genius or a fraud?
My number one enemy is my number one love.

ALMOND BLOSSOM

Almond blossom, not amaryllis...
sweetness against pridefulness.


Say it with some intense feeling...
seek that flower expressing loving.


Almond blossom or lemon blossom...
revering love with an incredible charm.


Childness must not be unfaithfulness...
feel the sublimest joy of blessedness.


There are sweet memories with a primrose...
be captivated by a cheerful, delicate pink rose.


Almond blossom over a bunch of beauties...

Oh, did you forget about the white water lily?
You may need it for truthfulness and fidelity.

Kiss of Death

Angels of death, thieves of hearts
You are trapped once their entrancement starts
The only escape of their spell is eternal rest
Hades enjoys using temptation the best
His servants are well versed in his charms
Demons of magnificent grace leading you into his arms
Their beauty hides malicious intent
Their master is Satan, from fire they were sent
To lure those on the brink
Into the merciless pits of anguish they sink
Succubi and incubi, creatures of darker than night
Look instead to the light
It is so easy to fall to their enchantment
Their evil shows not a hint
False feelings take away every care
Past everything, into your soul they stare
Unbearable is the loss of their presence
Heartbreak involving them is intense
Once you taste their power you'll always want more
Yet, be it by homicide or suicide, only the end is in store
Kiss me now, steal my last breath
My darling, my love, my life and my death

What does it for me contest

Open my senses and pour into me 
all of the things that cause me to feel ecstasy
Summer nights that are filled with torrential rain
Watching a horse run while waving its long mane
A thunderstorm that echoes through the distant land
The piano playing something new and deliciously grand
A magnificent sunset on an open field
The crisp fall air in November that makes my soul yield
Gloomy days that I like to hide inside
An extended car drive with no destination in which to arrive
Colorful leaves dancing in the wind while on a long hilly hike
Open Dirt roads with a newly painted bike
Boat rides that go far out to sea
Fresh waves that crash against me
Mornings after a heavy snow 
When no one has touched it and the snow still has its glow
The smell of a person’s clothes that I like or love
When I am having a bad day and I turn and see a white dove.

Under the Rains She Purred

We enjoyed our walk below the autumn skies
Golden browns bloomed and graced our eyes

Hand in hand, through woods and fields
Marvelling at nature, and in what she yields

Darkness loomed on this late September afternoon
Clouds above massed, in impending monsoon

Slowly the rains fell from the skies
As the clouds opened in plentiful supply

I turned to my girl and she was on her knees
Her summer white dress in see through please

These autumn rains showed a lovely change in her
As she looked to the skies in delightful purr

Her wetted face had a glint in her eyes
As i kneeled before her, and her purr like cries

Our faces met, and our lips greet
In continual excite, repeat repeat

Sodden we are under this cascade of wet
This is one afternoon i will never forget

Love, The darkest angel..

Life, O how it means so little any more,
My heart was made of steel and the maker made no door,
How is it that my soul once seamed to sore,
But now the pain seeps through while leaving a pool upon the floor,
Nothing makes sense and I feel so confused,
She's left me alone, my spirit's been beaten and used,
But there's a cruel smile that crosses her face,
Like the darkest angel with some unquinchable taste,
A taste for a life that seams just out of reach,
So I'm left here alone with nothing to learn or no one to teach..

Here Take My Gun

Here, take my gun
Do you like it here on the road?

On second thought, I will take that back
I might need it in the next town

I like your blue scarf
Do you love biting down on it?

No, the blood is from a poem
It has nothing to do with this world

You can’t stay with me
That would rob me from my destiny

The dessert is the teller
It will clean our teeth and fade our hair

I was watching you
Through my compass and decided you were East

I knew at that moment
The well had gone dry forever today

Sometimes I see the world 
Like it was crystal clear with no illusions

I’m sorry I disturbed you
Have a nice day and hope that you never meet me

For I saw the portrait of your soul
I found how they ripped your essence and on it urinated 

Spill you father’s vodka down your throat
It might medicate your tortured and blackened heart

Your nothing but a painted clown
Hoping to deceive and finally win an easy life

Here, take my gun
I love it on this road

Together Though Apart

The miles so keeping the two apart
So distances, great, the destined hearts
But, yet they seek, they feel, they know
Despite the distance, their love grows

To never have touched, but yet they feel
To never have sight, but yet love’s real
They know one another, so deep, they do
Together, in common, they love so true

Day of Love

Valentine's Day is a day of love,
When love is symbolized with a dove.

When all our love can be set free,
And shared among you and me.

And even when the day is ending,
Our share of love is just beginning.

The Pool Table (Adult)

Gray clouds shift from left to right
A storm is brewing, may last all night
Tree leaves ruffling in the wind
She heads for her house, hides in the den

She feels so safe in that special place
No thoughts of storms, just of his face
Though it is pouring and gives a scare
She know she’s safe for now, in there

Remembering…

He pulled her into his big strong arms
Saying he’d protect, keep her free from harm
They walked slowly to the billiard table
Romantic, the two, like Dietrich and Gable

Smiling, demurely, she leaped to the table
Seeing it was strong and ever so stable
She motioned for him to come over to her
After that moment, it became just a blur

She played a new game of billiards for sure
Cue sticks and balls were thrown to the floor
The two were having fun playing there on the felt
As she reached for her lover and pulled off his belt

The two now aglow by the pool table light
Had worked up some heat on the dark rainy night
Then, intertwined, hearts raced out of control
Love making went on, absorbing each soul

Now…

Thinking of that night when they shared that time
The happiest of feelings had all come to mind
The fear in her head and then in her heart
Had drifted away from her there in the dark

Erin

The modest curves of a women in jeans,
whose smile becomes the essence of sheen,
A beam extended of a distant sun,
A beam exalted the beauteous one,
her orgin must be of a godess hands,
her name is uttered everywhere men stand,
Erin, beneath the breath of fairest dreams,
Erin of earth, adorned, the fairest queen

I Want My Mommy

as I lie in this womb
for it's my heart you'll hear beat soon

da beat beat beat
and da tapping of tiny feet

attached cord
was my mighty sword

words of disgrace
embedded in my taste

drug of ill fath
served on my plate

you have rather me died
than to hear my wimper and cries

I could of made you proud
instead of being wrapped in this tiny shroud

now I am someone else's angel
wearing a nice shinny golden halo


as my unspoken words goes out to you
I hope your next child won't have to go through this too

My Little Princess

Gotta go down to Heaven's Jublee store
To buy a speical gift for the one I adore

Doesn't matter if it's big or small
She won't care at all

Just as long it comes from me
I know she'll be totaly happy

Jenny is her name
So I have to think of something insane

Maybe a doll
Or some kind of ball

I know it's gotta be pink
Or she'll think it will stink

She loves the moon and stars
And how they twinkle from the galaxe so far

So maybe something glittery
For someone else to come see

Awe there you are
Hiding under barbies car

Aw shucks only one left
Someone could call this a theft

A bargin deal on this star shaped pillow
To rest her little head under our wheeping willow

Now to give it a name
Not to name it would be such a shame

So I'll call it my little princess of the stars
Because it fits her boldness by far

Mirrors

My souls is filled with verses and hearses
Looking for lyrics, My mind still searches
My mind isn't on a sprint but its running
When they read it, The aristocrats just keep shunning
Reading my emotions and you turn into a hater
I thought you were my friend, No, Just a traitor
Confused about the meaning and suffering of life
Confused about the hatred of using a knife
People say "You only cut yourself for sympathy"
Who the f*uck do you think you are to say that to me?
My writings, My thoughts.. So extremely deep
It's like someone compacted my emotions from a heap
I'm demented and twisted, But I'm runnin' the gauntlet
I'm so sick and spiritual even my ghosts are haunted
Under my bed there isn't a single heathen
But if i look into one you'' see a mirror full of demons.

Important Of Music In Our Lifes

Important of music in or lifes
Helps sooths termoils of daily strifes

Flow and temple of boasted notes
Rythem and rhyme that continues to float

A song from an lonesome heart
Ignited by an passionate start

Fantasy of wanting to belong
In or named in just one song

Spirits can be held on high
And can almost make you cry

So tread on your walk of life
And enjoy the melody that cuts like a knife

Thunder

Thunder

To the north thunder and lightning
To the south blue sky adjoining skies so frightening

We sit on the border between them feeling the balance of the two
For God moves in passion but also rests with you

The thunder is His passion the calm sky shows His peace
Life seems to unfold this way and in our hearts will put a crease

For in a moment our hearts feel thunder and in another comes our joy

Let us always smooth the crease and Gods love try to employ

For they will always stand together until the sun will shine no more

And always stand in gratitude when either comes to your door

Fishin'

He called me, on the phone,
Asked if I was gonna' be home.
A smile just appeared,
Soon he'll arrive, here.
Now a full blown grin ...
He just walked in! 
I said, "ALRIGHT!" ...
"We're gonna' have a GREAT night!"

The whole night lay before us 
I didn’t want to cause a fuss
Dinner and a movie
Would be kinda groovy
Dancing would be nice
We’ve done that once or twice
I know what he’d been missin’
So I’m taking him fishin’

Packed up the ice chest
With stuff he loves best
Thick slices of ham
Sweet strawberry jam
Crispy pickles in a jar
Cookies cut into a star
Ice cold Bud Lite
Gonna be a long night

Got a new rod and reel
Got a really good deal
It’s a Diawa brand
Fits just right in my hand
We’ll stop by his place
To get his tackle case
His rod and bass boat
Hope it will still float

Now we're at the lake
Gonna fish ‘til real late
Then throw that sleeping bag down
Right over there on the ground
Snuggle up and build a fire
Stoke it with love’s desire
He know’s what I’m missin’
Making love after fishin’

Incentive and Initiative

Incentive and Initiative

Cat was both purring and up had been curled
While watching our flag which was now unfurled
Blowing in breeze and by nothing being bothered
Like great, friendly new idea in being fathered.

God, new poem to me again, He has granted
Which into my mind was so safely planted
With meaningful purpose which was to give
You effort to write poems with added incentive.

Instead of just sitting there while you will stare
Write many poems like mine all beyond compare
And in everyone's soil which is always native
Will grow more poems when you take the initiative.

CHOOSING WHOM TO LOVE... IS AN UNSOLVED DILEMMA

Choosing whom to love...is an unsolved dilemma, we humans seldom attest;
how can love be shared equally among the ones who delight our very heart?


I can't love one person more than the other, it's utter unfairness on my part;
what troubles me is to whom I'll give the deserving affection that can last...


If many haven't loved me or touched me in the simplest, truest way: I can go past that;
and wouldn't hold it against them, but what I will tell them is to be my friends and chat.


And the saddness of the matter is that friends aren't like God who's ever-present; 
they live among us for a short while, then they depart to begin their jeourney's quest.


Many dark days have see me waiting on someone like a hopeless beggar: bitter, cold and sad;
no nickels, dimes or quaters were tossed into my coffee cup I held up with a trembling hand.  
  

Fate, unfair fate will there be a time when you'll show me sympathy, and not embitter me?
If another chance at being loved were given to me, I wouldn't forfeit it when it accosts me.
.

Choosing whom to love...is an unsolved dilemma, causing confusion to clearly think and pause;
not all can be certain of hearing that they are truly loved by offering them a beautiful rose.

Storms



Fascination of lightening and thunder,
His irresistible thoughts to my mind plunder,

Strong winds uproot and rains precipitate,
To strength of my heart can never equate,

Tornadoes engulf and whirlwinds make swirl,
As storm bound ship in middle of sea I lay still,
 
A violent quake shakes the earth so well,
I am forced to come out of my bodily dwell,

And as the oceans with the waters swell,
Restless mind vivid thoughts can put me to hell,

Like gigantic sea waves taken by storm ,
I rise and fall on my own horn !

Infamy

Rolling in faster than I can respond
Trying to keep up with what’s going on
Feels like it’s swirling out of control
Everyone wanting a piece of my soul

Can’t breathe without someone reporting
Can’t write without someone retorting
Feel the night wind with watching eyes
Accusations, assumptions, blatant lies

Hiding in darkened, hidden places
Searching the eyes of shadowed faces
Looking for those who remember me
Who know who I am, who can set me free

A fever is burning from deep inside
Clouding my judgment, darkening eyes
Removing the light that offered me peace
Taking from me its sweet relief

Exposed as you read the words I have written
Exposed as you feel the emotions I’ve hidden
Afraid when I touch on the fringes of fame
Terrified when you speak my true name

Try to live up to the world’s expectations
Seeking through truth some real salvation
Trying to render what is believed
To be the core of who they want me to be

Pleasing everyone save my very own self
Being all that I am to everyone else
A poet, a goddess, a writer, a dreamer
An angel revealed, memories linger

Waking with passion of stories untold
Writing these memories so others will know

She's out of my life

Jealousy, greed, or something in between.
A belated response: my chance has already been.

A bird in the hand is worth two in the bush -
you being with him reminds me of the path I should’ve took.

A mocking jeer at my self-indulgent indecision,
clouded sense of self-worth, I truly believed I was omniscient.

Disregarded your beauty, the pure essence of your personality.
Sacrificed what could’ve been the love of my life, for the sake of my vanity.

Lamenting the error of my ways gives rise to nothing other than pain.
I thought I was a player, but got played by the game.

Engrossed in whatever seemed the biggest challenge, when it was clear-cut,
we were intended for one another and I messed that up.

Don’t want you to be my Rosaline, be my Juliet:
Otherwise I may lose my mind in a cyclone of regret.

My Dear

My Dear, I tell you in words, that I love you true.
Sometimes I feel that is not enough, just for you.

So I am writing this letter in rhyme from my heart.
Though I show you, I love you, on every days start.

This is not sufficient, for one that gloriously divine.
Adequate expressions are lost to describe, .love of mine.

Gifts unavailable to express, all that I have received.
My Dear, delivering my treasures, completely as conceived.

Each night my goal, to slowly fulfill your expectations,
Together our souls; will discover such exploitations.

Matched Each Other

Matched Each Other

While often writing and here waiting
Wondering what my mind should be relating
To some subject which will be the best
People will love forever and never detest.

Why won't poets, a comment try to make
Afraid it may cause much pain and heartache;
Worry them about my poems I have chosen
How poorly is their start as well as closing.

Many prophets and poets prefer profane
But to me this simply is only mundane
Off many walls, paths and out of thin air
With an outrageous attitude of I don't care.

Then there are tanks referred to as septic
Like poems put together that are epic
Unless writer will start paving the way
And preparing us for what he has to say.

We always grow older when age increases
And now can only absorb bits and pieces
So take your time and small doses send
Every thing will start to blend in the end.

Much of this might be subject to debate
How long does green poet have to hesitate
Before we are attracted by his anxiety
Which we have appeased by our sobriety.

Could go on and on and on even more
I like and prefer poem but you deplore
Maybe with my efforts will start to gamble
What is needed for my poems to unscramble?

End up with simple case of pick and choose;
Add more to the deluge and it can confuse;
Will follow each poet's card game golden rule
Look out for loaded deck and don't lose your cool.

Once the ground, you gently start to land
And adorable horizon just have scanned
What came your way was only fair weather
Now that minds and poems are matched together.

ORANGE JUICE

Orange blossoms bloom heavenly
Citrusy orange growing carefully

Full with juice gratifying desire
Orange tree reaching ever higher

God’s passion ripened in the sun
Scent that lingers off each one

Filling the pitcher pouring it in

Pour a glass of Orange Juice
Pulp in side is good for you

Satisfy the morning routine
Orange juice is nature’s vaccine

Amber Grail

Hurry--dawn approaches quickly on soft wings of amber light,
arising from the faded remnants of the prior purple night!

Gather--all ye creatures of the soil, sky and azure sea,
to taste the drops of sunshine that seclude the day from ebony!

Revel--in the golden streams that runneth past horizon's edge,
bestowing warmth upon the lowest lake and highest mountain ledge!

Saunter--drunkenly, intoxicated by the zealous morn:
rejoice; the vacant sky burns brightly as another day is born!

Savor--every sweetened ray that filters through the clustered trees,
descending from its coral cup and trickling down the emerald leaves!

Hurry--dawn ascends from darkness, teeming from its garnished grail;
enamored by its honey hue,


the Sun, we Hail;
the Sun, we Hail!

Weed And Feed

On my day's journey
Think going to a basketball tourney

Stopped by sisters house
It was as quiet as a mouse

Out in her garden she sits
Hoe claw and gloves of misfits

Peddle pushers to kaboot
Gotta love her for she's a hoot

She kept digging at those weeds
And filling the holes with new seeds

I asked if she was tired of this
She replyed no as she turned and twist

See hoeing your garden
Is like a life's pardon

You might say it's like losing weight
Shedding unwanted pounds you hate

The hurries and worries
Even if their some kind of snow flurries

As we laughed and cried
I felt more pride

For my sister did it to me once again
Helped me weed out my own garden from within

My Lover My Friend

Where were you my love when I wore my frown?
When my mind and heart were completely down,

Matters not, now where you were those days,
All that matters now, how I feel in many ways,

A smile that sweetens my day and night so pure,
Words that you whisper, raptures my demure.

One touch of your hand lures me awake.
Your kiss, so soft, warm like a summer lake,

When we touch in love our bodies in tune,
Our passion secured, embodied in the moon.

We walk each hour holding hands, feeling secure.
Our sanctity guaranteed, forever love insured.

My lover, my friend, confident forever more,
Entwined, sensually bound, in fantastic allure.

SHE

Tearfilled eyes , I watch her ,  N happen to wonder... 
Does she know that my thoughts go with her, yonder ?

That, in my every smile, my every bliss,
Its HER that I desperately miss ?

That every time SHE kisses me Adieu 
My heart, it screams inside " No ! I'll always want u ! " ?

That evry sec, each passing day, 
I go desperate wishin she'd come this way ?

That evry time she comes to see me off
Its tears that I lock back within my laugh ?

That evry sweet smile of her's, dunno why
Drives me to despair, to heave, to sigh ?  

That evry time, my love, I try to declare..
Words can just NEVER get me there ?

That she's my strength, n she's my fire
Life without her'd have gone haywire ?

That she's the one who keeps me sane
When life withers me out, she's my rain ?

That no matter what I'm, no matter where I go,
I do reap, but that which she did sow ?

That deep within, with love much untold
Its HER, whom, closer than heartbeats I do hold ?

That come wild weather, or the torrentous tide
The Zenith is mine, when she's beside ?

That lost though I may be, in worldly glory
Its SHE who writes, n directs my story ?

That should  the whole World stand by, n prant n sneer,
I can still close my eyes, n walk her way sans fear ?

SHE WHO WAS MINE, N EVER SHALL BE...
MOTHER , O MOTHER, ALL GLORY TO THEE !

Have you ever

Have you ever loved someone so much that it hurts to be a part?

There love burns like the eternal flame deep within your heart.

Have you ever needed someone so much that without them you just cry?

Like a love that last forever and will never die.

Have you ever wanted someone so much that they never leave your mind?

As if to be with them some how stops all time.

Have you ever found someone that is truly your best friend?

Someone who always has the time with you to spend.

Have you ever found someone that makes your heart race?

Just thinking of her kiss and the way that she tastes.

Have you ever found a girl who tastes like a sweet peach?

A girl who with one look can stop your speech.

Have you ever found a women who will give her heart to you?

A women who will promises to always be true.

I found this women who i thought was just a dream.

Now i know what true love is i know just what they mean.

Many poets talk of women and compair them to many things.

Like the beauty of a flower or the song that a bird sings.

But she is so wonderful that nothing ive experienced can even compair.

To the way she feels when shes in my arms and just knowing she is there.

So as i finish this i would just like to say.

Deanna i love you more each and every day.

POETRY LIVES IN ME

It lives deep down in my soul, my heart, makes my body shiver and drives me 
insane....
and the real reason it lives in me because it understands 
my past pains... 

I go crazy when I hear it, cry because I can feel it and
it neglects me from every negative or positive thing 
it keeps me silent and aware of everything and hides me away from 
the rain...

It keeps me warm in the winter and it helps my heart beat full
of life...
it cools me in the summer time and waters me like a flower with a ray 
of sun light...   

It picks me up when I am so far down, it observes 
my surroundings and it excites me when I'm sad...
it takes me  to another place, remembers that I mean something
and take my bad days and turn them into yesterdays …

Poetry is my earth, wind, and fire, my desire, my love song, my lullaby
My winter, summer, spring and fall…
Poetry lives in me that’s why I give it my best and my 
all…

So, Till We Meet Again

We have poems that make us really different from one another;
You already mastered the rhyme, whilst I‘m still trying to discover.

I have played several times, with this cute little haiku,
While you, deeply, longing to amaze its twin sibling senryu.

And yet, without doubt, we all meet everyday on this central stage,
Where you, un-selfishly, spreading yourself on this blank page.

While my complicated thoughts are being stocked in deep confusion, 
Because I am undecided yet, in what form I must uncover my passion.

For not only you, who suffer in this so-called un-poetic indigestion;
But indeed, happy are those who continue sharing their poetic vision.

Sleep Pattern

When I lay me down to rest
I think of the one I love the best
Imagine I am wrapped up tight
In his loving arms each night

Before I even try to sleep
I have a date that I must keep
I call him up just to chat
About our day and things like that

Then as our conversation ends
Sleep creeps in and I pretend
That I feel his lips in a kiss
And fall asleep full of bliss

Unspoken

Unspoken words show from things I do.
Unspoken words not needed from me to you.

Friendship was the first I gave so dear.
Then kisses upon the neck so sincere,

Lips of ours that touched with tenderness,
A touch between us gave such openness.

Each day at first when we were apart,
Our love grew deeper within our heart.

Love is not given, earned from the start.
Enriched and appreciated as in art.

Together now we still spark a flame.
Our bond that we share has no shame.

Each night when our bodies lie still,
Our spirits rise with so much to fulfill.

Sometimes when we chat so serene,
Our souls combine, our minds convene.

Holding each other for hours in delight,
We are bound until first break of light.

Each new day more love and no fears.
I pray our love shall be stronger for years.

 A bright tornado spins inside her
only living God can guide her
In the sparkle of the spiral
breathes a force that's wild and viral,
filling others with a passion,
only pure romance may fashion.

Tear the mantle ,stop the twisting
break the power she's enlisting,
spattered colors fly around her,
staining every soul who found her.

Blue and purple in your eyes
adding life to her disguise,
whirling spectrum there before you
living only to adore you.

Everywhere she touches down
living lovers start to drown
in her thirst for many colors
don't you blend in like the others,

she'll stir you up and suck you in

Last 1 Left

Am I the last one left
cause all the world is a mess

I seek to teach my brothers
but they seek their own success

How can the people ignore
the hurting neighbor next door 

They act like life is just that easy
when you're black and you're poor

So I prepare myself to fight

For soon the sad will be the happy
and feel no pain no more

So with my very last breath
before I lay down and rest

I want to say that I feel 
like I'm the last one left.

...I'd give to you ,as my present

If I could capture my mind's eye
..I'd post a message ,of love to you

If  I could meet you face to face
..I'd see your eyes,full of grace

If I could hear your tender voice
..I'd forever make you ,first choice

If I could touch ,finger to lip
..hand in hand in love's embrace ,we'd slip

If I could breathe deep in your hair
...I'd ask you ...our lifetime to share

Redemption

Behold the bed of nails
    that lurks in chambers horror
beneath a bulging gibbon’s eye
    bleached skin to corpse-like pallor

A green-eyed lass lies bleeding
    the torment drains away
her paste-white body pleading
    his life for hers betrayed

Singing Heart

Live life and truly be happy
I know this sounds so sappy

Truly my dear life is so short
Don’t shut yourself in a fort.

Thrills are out there for you.
Also sadness this is so true.

Don’t give up when you’re down
Rip from your heart those frowns.

Remember that you are in control
You must get past your thought goal.

Look from inside for desires and feelings
Listen as your loving heart sings.

He Is

What he is, to me as a child
He held me close when all was wild
He gathered my heart, when it was broken down
I knew he would be there, just always around

The tears that were cried never went to far
For he saw the pain and healed the very scar
The life behind this wonder of love
Can be loved apon from the One above

Take for granted not his kind hearted ways
He tells me this time, Its Just One of Those Days
I truely believe he loves me and my messed up life
But I know in my heart, on day, I will be his wife

Married by body, and bounded by soul
It was each others own heart, that made us whole
A whole in our ways, and a whole in our minds
Our love is so very rare, there are not many kinds

He once was a bad child, and killed all aspects to life
But deep inside all of that hatrid and anger, he was sharp as a knife
He gathered the peices, that were once my broken heart
And began mending them back together, so our loving could once
agian start.

Passion

The air around us crackles
Tension fills the air

Both aware of the other
Each pretending not to care

Our passion becomes a fire
One that burns out of control

Our need for each other
A sea that floods our souls

Our emotions, a hurricane
Blowing away all doubts

Each of us surrendering
Fires consume us, leaving no way out!

Chartreuse

  WE ate cherries for breakfast
in our pink champagne
by evening we're twisted,
and yes,quite insane
lounging in loveland

in a Berlioz style
classical music kissing the air
taking us higher
alive and aware
obsession,possession,
come take me away,
the fire and the passion,
I need you today!

Veils of Illusion

Truth is blinded by veils,
the world is governed by males

The blacks are packed big jails,
my brothers living in cells

I feel I'm living in Hell,
cause there's no freedom or bail

The only way to have peace,
is through God's love or deceased

It makes you hate to be poor,
cause all the wealthy ignore

The veil has blinded their eyes,
to all the hurting outside

But I will fight for the peace,
that God created for man 

Until my soul is released,
and body turns into sand.

Healing Ellie

I met you hollow as the bones
of sun scorched trees with roots upturned
Worn to smoothness, polished grey
I met you when you'd less to say
But time and temperance green the ground
by pushing growth and sticking 'round
The seeds which scattered, dormant, light
in a gust of wind and time, took flight
They settled with your words and grew
with limbs of strength, they became you
And soon you laughed and bloomed in pink
and unwrapped time as a gift to think
Soon, your roots entwined the earth
You opened your arms to a million birds
and swayed in the wind to their favorite tune
as you etched them into your friend, the moon
Now you speak as all nature does
with a heart full of passion that's rooted in love
Each limb of growth reaching into the wind
Your words are a healing, You're on the mend...

Memory Necklace

String me a necklace, a lunar eclipse
of shadows, of baubles, of eternal bliss
Memory make me in frozen star dust
and roll out the heavens just like we discussed
You are my anchor in times of distress
my haven, my shoulder, my afternoon kiss
You salve my wounds with a quiet decree
and string me a necklace with gifts from the sea
Opposite shores pushing waves to and fro
in the moonlight we met, in our liquid we flow
With a braiding of star dust we necklace the moon
so she's dressed to the hilt of the luna de lune
We are the music of husband and wife
Trailing our memories behind us in life
You decorate me with love from the sea
You are my passion, eternally.

Grieving Coquinas... for Nancy

Coquina butterflies, in cases, in glass
30 years locked in my memory's passed
The beach just brought home with it's sand still warm
to a house full of love, to a brand new home
When he smiled then, when he caught her eyes
they remarried in whispers and sweet surprise
As a child I learned, and I learned it well
Drop into love, so with ease, I fell
I fell in a dream with the ocean's kiss
while thinking of them in happiness
'till the moment he wrapped the shore up to bite stone
'till the moment he told her he'd leave her alone
Not by free will did he swim out to sea
for the love of his life he would never bereave
Nay, but with sickness, an anchor in tow
He kissed her and smiled so she'd always know
She swam out so far, to the boundary of currents
and filled up the sea with her tears in her fury
She screamed 'till her lungs had shriveled in salt
and broke open emotion, engaging them all.
Coquina quiet in cases, in glass
in their home by the sea, in their infinite past
She'll love now no more for once you are bitten
there's no breaking butterfly wings, it's forbidden.

The Darkling Prince

   Oh darksome prince,
how I bowed at your feet
you asked me for bourbon 
and nothing to eat
  I followed you close
as a pitiful pet
you gave me a pill 
thatwould make me forget
  But I must remember
with switches and whips
to punish myself
for the taste
of your lips
  your lips and your arms
oh darkling devine
imprison my soul
'til the last drop of time.

Warm Embrace

Did you see the sun shinning bright,
securely your arms wrapped around me so tight.
Five Times or more each week beneath my covers,
always yearning for more than just part-time lovers.
Must you hold me so tender so right.
it makes me want this each and every single night.
I want to be with you always souls together free,
I want this so badly if only you could see.
See what i see us together forever face to face,
for now just keep me tucked away in your warm embrace.

Sunspots on the Face of Dawn

  We feel the changes
of the seasons
still we stay 
for our own reasons
I because the time recalls
when we nearly had it all
He because
his olive skin
reflects the sun,
absorbs his friends
our cabana
sags and shivers
near the winter line
that quivers
on my lips
the margaritas
salty spray
on senoritas
gliding by him
on the sands
I am sick and weak 
of hands
Yesterday we sailed
the harbor
silent,strong and filled
with ardor
By tommorow
we'll be gone
sunspots on 
the face of dawn.

turning rainbows into oil slick

round and round
tambourines and pomegranates,
making love without a sound.
Bathing in the fragrant fountains

Love primieval rise and fall.
May the turtledove be silent

ere we dare to break the circle

My Love

My love for thee far exceeds any other
Deep within my soul, a deep passion flows forth
My love grows with each day that passes
My heart, my love, belongs to thee and thee alone                         

Thy warmth, thy love, thy smile
Hath warmed this cold heart of mine
Thy love I shall charish, thy heart I shall hold
Thy name I shall protest, thy honour I shall uphold

No words can describe how far my love for thee doth go
My love shall never waver, my loyalty shall never fail.
My heart shall always belong to thee
From now until eternity, this shall always be

Rendezvous with a Madman

The clockwise closure of the lock,
the casual yet floral frock,
the charming cinematic pose,
the way she crinkles up her nose,
at cigarettes and cheap perfume,
I know she's waiting in  my  room.

I wonder if she hears my song,
the one I wrote Beethoven on,
The shadows of the cedar tree
outside the room are chilling me
with fears of ghosts she doesn't know.
I hear their breathing
deep and slow.

 in Gothic grain, I see a face
within the bark, what is this place?
The greedy grass absorbs the sound,
my  music sinks into the ground
and sprouts a blossom burning bright
I'll take it back to her tonight.

Should I return?
I have the wine,
Sangria and a Valentine. 
a strangled sigh escapes my throat,
I can not sing the words I wrote.
The very fabric of the night
is twisting out, this can't be right....
..............................

My melancholy fancy fades,
the feathered breath of hope pervades.

A foreigner to fate am I 
But love is strong .......    and I must try

Chopin to Sand

  To breathe is constricting
to walk is now strained
My passion is boundless
My power has waned

  I see hope rekindle
I feel I can try
to put down this opus,
this work,
ere I die.

True Love Is

A love that is unconditional knowing no degrees
As deep as the oceans, rivers and seas.
A love that is pure, straight from the heart and full of  compassion
Never to be severed or torn apart.

A love of passion, emotional and real
A love that permeates the spirit; a love one can feel-
That binds two together with an everlasting seal.

A love that alleviates past heartaches and pains
Banishing the fears, so that only happiness remains.

A love that is strong, rock-solid, constant and true
A love so special, fufilling in all that one thinks, says and does.

A love so intimate, that there is no more you and me
There is only US
A love that one can depend on-
A  love based on Trust.

Fruit?

Like a sweet, succulent banana, edible, ripe
She peels off her clothes for my sheer delight
Just like an orange, so juicy and wet

I bite at her skin to release the sweet juice
As a bowl of fruit, my lover truly be
With portions for one and that one is me.

A weakened mind, when stilled the heart
A lifeless mass, not yet to start

T’is then is when my heart shall beat
As heart takes life, it’s then complete

Heart to Unthaw

Cooled off in nitrogen
molded and set
dusted with lightning

Brilliant and shiny
silver and stone
heartbeat gone stagnant
cold and alone
Hidden in darkness

packed up in parchment
encrypted and red
Frigid disaster
love on the mend
icicle heartbeat
about to begin
Pumping the crystals
grinding the wall
silver delirium
waiting to fall
Thawing and melting
crying like rain
Heat up the ventricles
Swallow your pain.
Far better be it
to melt in the wind
than stiffen to stone
made of silver or flint
Molt up the metal
soften the flesh
If you're frozen of heart
you are already dead.

My Own Fixation


It is too easy to master the sadness, of my poetry
Than all the combinations, of winning the lottery

I’ll just think I’m sad, sadness becomes my poetry
I’m already mad and sad; still, I don’t win a lottery

That I decided to have my fixation, on a sad poetry
Than harvesting great sadness, of losing the lottery

There is, at least, one big profit of writing sad poetry
Freeing the pain that you gained, perhaps, in a lottery

So come hand in hand, let us build a world, of poetry
Rather than investing your hope, of winning a lottery

Nighttime Embrace

We sleep by day, awaken at night
To dance among love’s sweet delight
As our feet set rhythm on the floor
We dream together, of amour

The passion that we so can make
Is sometimes more than we can take
As heat does rise within the dream
To make us writhe and also scream

Alive then, passion flows within
As dreams then bind, to hold us in
We do our bidding, our voiced command
As we hold each other within our hands

The Waiting Place

Beneath the willow, there she lays
Full bodied figure on display
Quiet, peaceful, sound asleep
She waits for him, a date to keep

As shadow reaches upon her face
She awakens in that peaceful place
Where all her dreams do, there, come true
When, quickly, her eyes open to you

With crystal settings, her eyes, then wide
Show her feelings felt deep inside
A hand, she reaches for his, too
To touch her heart, refresh anew

With voice so soft, she whispers sweet
Words of love, to a lyrical beat
Together there, they share a dance,
In willows embrace, set to romance

My Hero

It was a cinnamon kiss
 she wore that brown shade
it's there on the glass
where she sipped lemonade
  her eyes were the sunset
a bottomless blue
with pale flecks of gold
full of secrets she knew

  He was the hero
who won at the games
tall,undefeated and
ever untamed

  their touch charged the ocean
with Saint Elmo's Fire
their kiss,such emotion
could only burn higher

   they melded together
as silver pulls gold
their atoms intwining
a sight to behold

  an innocent kiss
to a bright conflagration
cinnamon flames
from an infatuation

but today she resides in a land
by the sea
and he folds the laundry
at home here with me

  forgiveness is golden
and so I forgave
love can't be a servant
it won't be a slave

  she may be cinnamon
she may be fine
but at the end of the story
the hero is mine

"Sweetness"

Sweet like a serpentine
Stunning in glass
fuming with poison
from pain that has passed
Limp like an iron cast
Push while you  pull
starving from vomiting
when you were full
Gripping like falling sand
Streaming in veins
starts out like sweetness
and ends up in pain
Sweet like a lemon green
Tart like a hiss
broke open with frost
from a serpentine kiss.

My Good Friend Jack

Oh sweet golden nectar, contained in my glass
Cool as ice, but warms the lips it does pass
The colour of Russian gold mixed with honey
The scent is so full, like the smell of new money

It warms like a hug on a cold winter night
Slides down your throat with barely a fight
The taste is so sweet it reminds you of sex
Those intimate moments and kisses on necks

A little will warm you right down to you toes
Too much by the fire will cause you to doze
Indulge much further and your mind is lost
Like as a glass is warmed it loses its frost

It’s drunk by the world of riches and fame
But with its sweet golden taste who is to blame
Movie star and sings like the blue eyed Frank
Its enjoy by the world, and by every rank

It’s made by a family in the deep of Tennessee 
But seems to be created just to be drunk by me 
Its bottle is inviting with its label so black 
What would I do with out my good friend Jack?

someone young
and wild and free
to shed the silver plated skin

Take Notes

Seven days and seven nights of burning heat and passion
Some would say they made this up, but that is not their fashion.
They said to me that life is great, but their love is even more
and if I were to take some notes, a better one in store.

First, 
take your time, they said to me, when showing how you feel,
love should never be so fast, keep it slow and real.

Second,
Don’t talk about the things you’ll do, just go ahead and get them done.
Your love will then, burn right through, the other’s heart you’ve won.

Third,
Keep it simple, but romantic. Never spare or lessen your desires.
Then, for certain, it will get hot and increase your lover’s fires.

Fourth,
Don’t forget the surprise when showing appreciation for the other
That will provide much variety and a much appreciated lover.

Fifth,
Don’t ever be scared to ask for what you want and what you need
Your mutual love will forever flow, forever blossom and be free.

So, this they said, is the way to two lovers’ eternal bliss,
Remember though, before all of these, share your ever loving kiss.

THIS MAN OF MINE

This man of mine, never one so divine, 
He has touched my heart so many times 

Just being with him makes me feel complete, 
I enjoy him very much, he is so sweet.

How could I have found him? 
Where did he come from? 

To have found this man who found me, 
Is it a part of a divine plea?

This man of mine so strong, so true
Who loves me in ways I have never knew

He is caring and giving so gentle so endearing
These words I am speaking are not even completing

I love him so, this man of mine
My heart is his, my life entwined

Together with Gods special touch
Bring us happiness hope and trust.

Dreams of Love[after Liebestraum]

Magenta thatched magic
Lantern ravine
sugar plum shadows
haunting the stream
  perplexing the galaxy
a siege of illusions
a serpentine rhapsody
leads to conclusions
  Follow the lodestar
Hesperus rising
delirious love
is always surprising
weave me a diadem
wild orchids weeping
Norwegian whiskey
and Grieg
while I'm sleeping
   Deep in our bower
a bold mandolin
bids us forget
all we are or have been
we rise on the vapors
melodic surrender
to the rhythm of love
and our night 
to remember.

Old Flame

  I saw him standing in the street 
he  so vacant eyed and weak,
refused to see me as I passed
For I recall the summer last,
when fireflies shimmered in the stream
and he had promised me a dream
before he set his soul on fire
with mistresses of white desire
and now his ashen face decries
the way a burning passion dies.

Salieri

  Foolish,childlike,great buffoon,
lolling there in some saloon
while I toss upon my bed
seeking rythyms in my head

  How I pray to see the light
one small gift for me tonight
will I ever find the key
that Mozart seems to have for free?

  Lack of moral fortitude
slovenly,yes,base and rude
I would banish such a lout
but royalty keeps him about

  He must write a requiem
for himself,a final hymn
I'll arrange it and assist
when he's gone
he won't be missed

  I'll be there to take his place
with love of God
and moral grace.

Tongue Tied and Tortured

Her steel vice mouth cast motorized lips
to the steady position in an unsteady grip
It readied her passion on her poison dart tongue
and shot two shades right passed his ailing left lung
Machine grinding teeth 'till their points made the sound
like the clinking of cheers filled to pints all around
Dancing saliva expecting to shine
on the edge of her glass filled with martyr and wine
Striking the desk and exploding her chair
she spun circles up walls and flew into the air
Her words caught up with her and stoned her to death
Least she finally relaxed as she drew her last breath.

Wake Up, Darling

Upon a bed of fluffy white
I reached, I felt, I kissed goodnight
Her body lay there ever still
Yet, I restrained with all my will
She slept, she dreamed, her mind it danced
Perhaps it filled with true romance
But, for now, I’ll hold her tight
With hopes she awakens, in the night
For then the dreams, they will come true
As we together, in love, renew

The softness of her blanketed skin
The warmth, the feel, invites me in
Lifting the blanket, it then revealed
Her body bare, my love then sealed
Still, she lay so motionless
I want this woman, I confess
But, there she sleeps, so I take hold
She makes me warm, destroys the cold
If only she could now awaken
My heart for her, no love forsaken

Obession is your name

  I used to be so wonderful

of golden hair and eye,

an eagle or a falcon 

was not comelier than I,

  I often flew to foreign lands

on wings of colored light,

I used to execute my plans,

and always make things right,

but now the universe has sworn

to break my heart in half,

I gave you night and early morn,

and still I hear you laugh.

what will it take to make you mine

and stop this burning pain?

I drown it all in dregs of wine,

For that one true love...
That will set their  souls  feel
Free to roam..

the Answer

  Is she still waiting as we speak,
back along that lonely street?
is she lying there in bed,
thinking of the things 
you said?

  the curtains billow 
"cross her lips
she thinks about  your
finger tips,
Have you come to say 
Goodbye?

I wonder which of us
will cry?

stillness in her meager room,
the cars whiz by out in the gloom,
she stares at flashing neon signs,
her mirror speaks in fractured lines,

to tell her yesterday is gone,
she feels the winter coming on,
she has nothing left of you,
no keepsake there to see her through,

I watch you as you cross my mind,
with every memory I find,
I roll your name around my tongue
and think of days when we were young,

you pulled my braids,
you kicked my shins,
you called me brat,
you called me friend,

Now should I let this be the end?

I brush the hair out of your eyes
inside me I can hear her sighs
the answer comes to me just then
I hear it blowing on the wind............

I Give Up

Go ahead, go ahead, take what you will
Do as you wish, create then your thrill
I have no power to fight against you
But why would I anyway, with all that you do?

I feel so appreciated, so I do not mind
Use whatever you have or whatever you find
I’m powerless to your various advances
And I am so in awe of all the romances

So, yes, I give in, take me and use
Do with me then, whatever you so choose
I’m only so happy that you had chosen me
Whatever you wish, I’ll do it for free (LOL)

Hour Glass

Time in a bottle.  
We run full throttle.
Trying to catch what we cannot see. 
Wanting and longing for what we know can never be.
He watches me as i move across the room.
His face full of excitement and a little doom.
His eyes are like fire in the night.
His hands scorch while they soothe away fright.
We know we have only a moment before the door is locked with no key.
They will come again and carry him out to sea.
We watch from our tight embrace as the sand falls.
Our love and passion is put on hold whenever duty calls.
His touch and presence is ripped away like a child from the womb.
But when we are together i am his to consume.
No part of me is left untouched or with out his kiss.
He finds my secrets as my breath is forced from me with a hiss.
He holds me close and shows me his love.
My hand fits in his like a warm winter glove.
He whispers softly in my ear.
He wouldn't want to be anywhere else but here.

Take Me Away

The world around us is harsh and cruel yet i have a sanctuary within your arms. 
Every time i feel your embrace i feel immortal to any harm.

You take me to a place where reality is fake and time stands permanently still. I 
try to find the words to tell you this but i know i never will.

Words cant express the feeling I get every time i look at you as you smile. I want 
to make you grin once again and hold you all the while.

Take me away to that far away place where up is down and left is right. Show me 
the mystical land where day is really night.

I want to feel the time stand still and behold your supernatural power. I want the 
decades to roll by with the passing of every hour. 

I want to feel your touch and hear your voice and look upon everlasting beauty. I'm 
powerless in your presence, if I could only find a way for you to see.

To show you how i feel for you and how much i truly care. To show you no matter 
what you do ill always be there.

To dry your tears, to make you smile, and to hold you as you weep. To share the 
laughs, and to keep you safe from the demons that will creep.

To love you more than anyone could ever comprehend. To be with you through it 
all and follow you to the worlds end.

So take me away to that far away place where north is south and east is west. 
Show me that mystical land better than all the rest.

Take me away to that far away place where the only thing i know is true, is that I'll 
be there beside you forever and i will always love you.

WE Compliment Each Other

On the surface we oppose each other. You all “regimented and me all “dreamy”.
But if we are “devoted “ to each other….Oh Boy! It sure is “steamy”.

I’m  going to let it work out at it’s own pace.  “We” are going to take our sweet 
slow time and run this race - 
	Because, it’s going to take some a-while to learn each other style 
and gain each others grace.

Even with you wanting to be dominating and flip. Difficult reactions are all I seem 
to get- you forget-
	Fulfilling your  needs are all I want to do.  With True compassion, I 
dedicated myself to you - now 	and for ever.
We, being of opposite elements and all…My water to your earth, We Compliment 
Each Other.

As we fuel each others fire- in passive ways, we find comfort in our sharing of 
each others days, through our thoughts, ideas, and spirit. I find comfort in you.  
Simply said “ We Compliment Each Other

Color of Music

With a rose wood neck and pearl inlay 
I placed my fingers on her, just to play 
A time enjoyed more, I never had 
The sounds she now made, made me glad. 

She sang with beauty, each note she hit. 
Melodious? More than just a bit. 
With love I gave, then closed my eyes 
And she gave back with charming sighs. 

Her body, curved, felt just so right 
As we played together on this night. 
The color of music that we made 
Went on eternally, as we played.

Words Glitterati

One rhyme at a time,
One love to linger on;

A little piece of you
And me, the glitterati

Of sonnets, and 
Of free verse;

We let ourselves to flow,
Sometimes, we overflow;

Coating in the passion
To shed out the emotions;

Poetry brings us together,
Re-unites us, when we fall;

You are my poetry
And I’m your rhyme;

You are my free verse
And I am your sonnet;

For words are out there,
Sweet as we whisper.

Passion Exchange

Where passion lives, I cannot say
However, it arises every day
It fills my heart and mind with heat
It makes me feel just so complete
Its life is triggered in so many ways
From words to breaths to simple play
It cannot be so easily suppressed
As well, it serves to keep me blessed
I love it when my passion stirs
For that’s the time I share with her

She feels the same, a love on fire
For with each breath, it’s even higher
She says I know not what I do
The effects I have, that keep it true
Her passion rages when I recite
My words of passion in the night
But, yet by day, she says she feels
The passion rise straight from her heels
Into the depths of mind and heart
She keeps it there, to never part

Together, then, we share it well
Our passion, moments, I cannot tell
But know this now and forever more
When passion hits, we close the door
