- Valentines Kiss -

Forever dazzling golden memories treasure flashbacks
Floating always within deep waters mirror reflections

There's nothing in the universe that compares to you
Into our world of inspirational and beautiful dreams

Growing wings in loves light freedom flies
Inside dancing warm waves of feathered feelings

I believe that you're my destiny I see the shine in my life
These are the special things that make me love you

Soul touching beautiful blue rising sparkling diamond kiss
Salted from deepest ocean currents one dream sings 

Exactly where the ocean begins and it decides to meet
Making me want to live in the moment forever
Sweet lips burst with flavor tides turn as the piper fish plays music
Flying over the sea sweet tunes dancing in ripples of light 

With honesty and compassion a gift so great
I can only give you one thing my love is where you are

A co write written by Liam Mc Daid and Anne-Lise Andresen
thank you anne lise a pleasure writing this with you dear friend

We Danced Through Life

We danced amongst the stars that night
when joy had fallen far from sight 

We danced under the sun so bright
And when all seemed lost, we held on tight

We danced to the music of hummingbirds
And we danced in the silence when there were no words.

We danced in the shadows of fear and doubt
And we danced when we questioned what life’s about

We danced amongst the evergreens
That posed for painters winter scenes.

We danced in the winters bitter chill
And when we danced our world stood still.

For that’s what love was meant to be
To find the dance when we cannot see.

To write a new song when the music stops
With lyrics that caress every tear that drops.

For when the rhythm changes and tempo slowed
We’re called to dance with the seeds we sowed.

For life is hard, there is no doubt
But Dancing through it, is what life’s about.

Sweetly Sings

Medicine of this soul faraway with a dream seventh Heaven looking across a sea
the other night went for a walk strolling against a cold wind distant thoughts

Crying seagulls on the beach looking around even snow lying in the sand 
it was quite an awakening cold cutting ice wind blowing across the brow

Listening to the echoing roars crunching of great cliffs tasting salted air
waves crashing thunder I thought of you as the surf sprayed on shores
Oh the moon as the winds howl laying golden whispers your name landing wishes fall on a star sparkling beams Heaven you came to me under a crystal blue white light 

An angel fallen who found one miracle lost in this world drunken in the chalice of love 
each drop dripping passion adoring loves beauty forever and always

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 Sparkling Star

Faraway ambassador of light distant dream sailing ocean waves
begging golden spear of destiny strikes midnight bells ring 

Spotlighting beautiful stunning to the eyes priceless gem 
diamond brightly sparks on a shining jewel treasure find

Mystery shades gasping warm breathless smiles tides turn flutters the heart
beating drum roars as the arrow strikes sexy moonlighting beauty

Hot flushes sweeping deeply skipping flames on magic dust
wishes warm touching inside the darkest night glowing thoughts 

Haunting full lips silver pearl whispers silently dancing tunes sing
blowing across deep sands echoes over oceans kissing paradise moonbeams

- Valentine Jewel -

A timeless sense of joy a magical fairy dust sprinkle from the stars 
My heart's flame one rhythmic and sensual warm dance 

Listening to our sweet music echoes magic whispers inside the mirrors glow 
Power stands within the beauty romancing warm waves uniting flow 

In a halo of silver light shining luster deeply sparkles over wishes beam 
Each new moon embracing forever spotlighting precious silver ball in one dream 

Our love brought us together through life's destiny 
Two souls have united entwined in love's single embrace 

Beautiful snowflake you're one of a kind always unique falling true rings 
Softly warm melting desires lovingly touch gently finding Heaven sings 

When the gaze of my eyes meets yours 
You bring me joy and happiness my dear valentine

Looking Deeply into Your Heavenly Eyes

Looking Deeply into Your Heavenly Eyes

It’s such a beautiful Cosmos I see in your eyes My Love,
When I’m looking so deeply into your Heavenly Eyes.

I sense love, harmony and such passionate feeling,
As I ponder the warm images I see and feel so My Love.

As you look deeply into my eyes too My Love,
I hope you sense my desire, passion, and love too.

What more could anyone ask for in this life My Love—
For without Love any celestial metaphor is truly meaningless.

And so, sometimes late at night as I dream so deeply of you My Love,
I meld as one with the sight I see so deeply in your Heavenly Eyes!

And I want you to know that I shall be with you forever My Love,
And for the rest of my life and beyond—my heart is forever yours!

Dear King-

# oi KING Mandalay

Influence by the element of air,
You had me at love’s first stare.

Ruled by the element of your water,
Emotions no one can slaughter.

You call upon me like a charmer,
Awaken me out of my outer body armor.

A cobra memorized by your romance,
With a trance of my belly snake dance,

I love your built confidence,
Flirtatiously lost in a hypnotic trance.

Sending a kiss to your sensitive toy,
One day you will be my silly boy.

Your dots fill up my sensual desire,
My passion adds burn to your fire.

I will add water to your thirst.
Motivate me; energize me, until I burst.

While the moon changes your mood,
Your key turns on my womanly jewels of nude.

All my emotions are out of control,
You roll me with the sweet dice of your soul.

A deep erotic ritual to feed the need.
Wanting more arousing the power of my greed.

I will aimlessly satisfy your pleasure of lust,
A loving environment absorbing the devils exotic dust.

Symbolizing our emotions and likes on the same level,
Your Cancer sign comes all twisted like a Tasmania devil.

Influencing the justice with my right hand muffet,
My Libra sign set on two strings like a puppet.

I will shove the love in to everything we speak of,
Secure my bloom with the wings of a dove.

Spoil me with your pride, and charisma of your heart,
Fantasize the beauty of the nature of our art.

Longing your slight touch with a hint of aggressive,
Around you I bury myself in the world of imaginative.

Your sign and element your gift thrives on me.
I exchange the feelings only you see.

Observe me; connect me, until you got my balance,
Have me, love me, and give me all your romance.

All though your ego gets in the way of truth.
My sweet love;-)  you are still the one I choose.

By: P.D.

O Lady, let us not tarry Be thou the rose to spread nights’ glee. Away from jousts, your pearls shalt shine, Spring’s boughs hath me in love, entwined! Knight’s offer then, I giveth fine life Through long winter, the heart a knife; Sayeth yes before looms the war Chivalry tests dark rivers far. O, shouldst thou be fair in season’s rest Time awaits thee, I am the quest. In my thoughts, soft lips ne’er waned So let dusk kiss our moments flamed. For onwards unto fields, thine arms Will endure kingdom’s call of drums; I hear thou sigh, so warmly laid. O, let us thrill our moon, dear maid! …………..

Could this be love

	Could this be love?

A kiss from a will o wisp
Elusive like stars that wink

Billowing like a silk scarf,
Delicately against your skin

Wishing at sunrise to see
It’s colors rustle and captivate

Like winsome eyes on a pillow
Or joyous laughter from a place

Past the shadows that sparkles
With an effervescence of fireflies

Making your toes tingle finally
And you say beautiful, beautiful

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".

When sparks Fly..

When Sparks Fly.

The magic in our togetherness make's sparks fly. 
Years of me loving her, her heart will always be mine.

Our trials, our errors, through out our years. 
Seeing grandchildren we made, strikes me to tears. 

Two hearts we have still beat as one.
The magic of our love is like white morning doves. 

We are still young then turning so old. 
Magically we are still in love 7 times fold. 

I have found my soul mate early in my life's stride. 
We both believe our love, with togetherness is our pride.

This Very Day

Make a wish then live that way
Me, I don’t know what to say

Since one and one equal two
I simply do what I must do

The hardest choice I now make
I prefer my icing on top the cake

My taste is set I will never roam
In your heart, I’ve found my home

Your love is like a rush of power
A thorny rose of tender flower

I swear of this I could not joke
Be still the thorn inside the poke

Like a lake aside a mountain pass
Your eyes are pools of liquid glass

Inside those pools what I see
A hero is what you see in me

You’ve made a hero of a villain
In your arms, I’m happy Chillin’

Days to weeks, months to years
To you who comforts all my fears

I reckon that, which I wish to say
I would die for you this very day

A Prayer for my Wife

                           A Prayer for my Wife

Now I’ll tell you all the details if I can keep from sheddin’ a tear
Last night when it got late and really quiet around here 

I got down on my knees, crossed my heart and began to pray
And in the darkness between me and God, here’s what I had to say

I love her so much Lord and I just don’t know what I’d do
I’m afraid that she won’t make it, that’s why I’m coming to you

Here with my heart open, at your mercy down on my knees
I’m begging’ you with every heartbeat, Oh Lord hear my pleas

I don’t know what your plans are or what you have in store
And I know I don’t deserve her and that she deserves much more

And don’t misunderstand Lord, I don’t assume any obligation
For your bounty in our life has exceeded all our expectations

But please allow her to live and me to be a part of that life
And I swear I’ll make this beautiful woman proud to be my wife

And if it’s not in your plans Lord then I pray that you take me instead
Cause’ I can’t live without my love, I’d be better off dead

And no excuses for my past Lord, but I’ll do better than I’ve done
I ask you only this, my lord, in the name of your Son.

I wiped my tears as I said my amen’s and prepared myself to stand
Stepped up next to your bed and began to caress your pretty hand

I stared off into space as all the memories came flooding in
Reliving each and every moment, over and over again

And as the first rays of sunshine, streamed in past the curtain
I felt an overwhelming peace calm my mind and ease the hurtin’

I felt compelled to kiss you so I pressed my lips to your face
And it seemed the room was filled in the beauty of God’s living grace

And you slowly opened your eyes and smiled for me to see
And I knew the Lord my God had given my sweet wife back to me

Interlude in a coffee shop

To sip coffee with you,
Reading the newspaper,

Sitting close
Steam rises from my cup,

I relish this moment
Cherishing your smile,

Examine your face,
Lines, changes over the years

Still, I look in your eyes
And see the young man,

The hearth is still warm
And I’m thankful for that.

The Bluebird of Happiness
I send to you today
He brings you all my love
As he hurries on his way

May his song fill your heart
As it was meant to be
And every time you hear it
You will think of me

Sharing the Sunset

Walking softly on the evening sand.
I can feel the softness of you hand.
I don't need to try and find the words to say.
Enjoying things that make me feel this way.
The sand feels so loose beneath our feet.
This moment in time makes me feel so complete.
Looking across the water as the sun slowly dips.
Like a huge animal that's bending down to sip.
I can smell your sweet fragrance with you so near.
The winds faintest of whisper ringing in my ear.
Forever in time, this moment stands still.
Aching to hold you so close, that's how I feel.
A walk on the beach, hand in hand, like we just met.
There's just nothing like it, we are sharing the sunset.

He's Sexy and you Know it

When I read your words they hurt a lot
Some men are men some others are not

Perhaps sex appeal he doesn't lack
With his power women take him back

He's a women hater of the worst kind
He lives to play his games with womens minds

Telling you somehow you are not enough
Through his dark lies you re-live some bad stuff

Yet in the end you come to realize
This bad boy is a devil in disguise

When you reject him he falls to his knees
You see the real him he is a disease

He never deserved you just walk away
For in the end you have the final say

Inspired by Becca's poem "No longer will she agonize"

For Marian

If I could I would return to a time of knights and kings
Of castles, dungeons, wizards and mystical magical things
I'd see Little John, Will Scarlett, the merry men and Friar Tuck
I'd stay away from the sheriff, I'd rather not push my luck

Robin was a hunted man, but he beckoned at her calls
For Marian he'd risk everything and climb the castle walls
His loyalty to King Richard made his men and he outlaws
They hid in Sherwood Forest, fighting for the cause

The king was in the Third Crusade unaware of the unrest
To become ruler of all England was the sheriff's quest
Through all this two lovers would light the evening sky
For Marian he lived and for Marian he'd die

A romance for the ages, A love that would never die
A love for all eternity to make the angels sigh
For King Richard his loyalty, for Marian his heart
To save the crown and England, Robin played his part

Richard returned to England to claim his royal crown
Robin triumphed in Nottingham bringing the sheriff down
There was peace and happiness all throughout the land
Robin knelt upon one knee to take his maiden's hand.

Robin Hood and Maid Marian.

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.

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

Late-Flowering Love

Under molten autumn's tumbling umber we walk,
fingers clinging, hours disappearing as we talk.

Love gifts drift from kaleidoscope canopy trees -
gentle showers of confetti-colourful leaves.

Heart-scarlet berries glow hotly in hedgerows,
passion-flame petals burn on a late-blooming rose.

Susurrous russet whisperings as leaves cascade;
secrets shared in soft, sequestered shade.

Reaping this harvest of hopes and dreams
in the late golden gleam of sunbeams.

Melding as day gives way to mauve-mellow twilight;
communing with the misted murmurings of night.

I Fall in the Fall

I Fall in the Fall


It was between dry and rainy 
season here
When you breathed early fall’s 
weather sphere

Love visits in a weird way
When you were far, I had nothing 
to say

Now you almost near, I think I 
jump my heart
Is this really a good start or only 
cupid's random dart?

You make me hold my breath, dear
When you suddenly appeared, I 
cried a tear

The intimacy communicates with 
my feeling
My heart’s fence starts crackling

I’m asking about fall, you’re 
Never mind, as you’re here, I can 
feel the leaves falling

 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 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:

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

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...

Looking For Love In All The Wrong Places

<        this poem is not about what is written, but what is not written
          like the smile upon her face that looks nil and somewhat smitten

          and lochs of hair hanging instead of with bows and lace
          tell me my angelic angel have you fallen from God's good grace

          has your garments of thread gone out of time
          has your dance with the butterflies gotten out of rhyme

         have you been cast from your lovers heart
         or are you just looking to start over with brand new start

         has clouds silver lining rained upon your dreams
         has leafs dance gone frozen in crystal streams

         time stands still amidst wondering thoughts
         time stands still when lovers cant be sought

I have a little treasure trove where I keep special things.
Today I thought I'd take it out, search through my memories.
Inside were pictures, souvenirs and things almost forgot,
And then among some special notes, a paper I knew not.

It seemed at first a poem that was started long ago.
Written just for me, in secret by my beau.
He must have written hurriedly, and stuck it in my hand,
To tell me I was special, he thought that I was grand.

I've kept that note, his song of love, for lo these many years;
And as I read it through again, it still brings me to tears;
For this song was like his love, he said it had no end,
Till I became his wife and so a new song could begin.

                                                                       Judy Ball

Forever Love

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.

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.

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.

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.

Who's Romantic Now

Who's Romantic Now? My Hubby is so Romantic that he told me I had infinite beauty the other day. And he said he is going to prove it, by looking at me from infinity, far away. But that’s OK I have to say, for he looks a lot like me. And I send him daily off to infinity; as to work he has to be. Now what’s so romantic about that, you may rightly ask? You see… he was supplying my muse, so my poem won’t come in last. CSEastman: Written on: 4-10-2012 Contest: 1-6 lines of Romance & Love Free Poetry Contest

Walking Out Together

~Walking Out Together~ I waited patiently to hear from you But you didn’t call, what was I to do? My heart is all of a flutter My head is in a whirl I thought you could be my boy I would like to be your girl We could go out together And hold hands and maybe kiss You could be my mister And I would be your miss Our lips could meet in secret A kiss stolen oh so sweet But for them to do that you know Then first we’d have to meet…

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

Be mine

I am only a novice
So when I am near you I get so nervous

I blame your beauty
It causes even angels to feel envy

But that's not the only reason why I want you
It's also your amazing attitude

You truly are great
I want to be apart of your fate

Even though your amazing, and I'm barely fine,
Will you be my valentine?

Winter's Blanket

The snow is falling, the harsh wind blowing 
The fire is burning, peacefulness growing.

Peering out at the swirling flakes of snow
Winters blanket is falling tonight we know

Nose pressed against the cold clean glass
The drifts building and covering the grass.

Windows mist as warmth meets cold
Snuggling in, waiting for you to hold

The blanket of snow rises flake by flake
A world quilted in snow for when we awake.

Warm and comfortable as the north wind blew
The only blanket I need to cover me- is you.

Wrapped in your arms, held safe and tight
Keeping me warm throughout the night.

Praying the world’s snow blanket grows deep
So you can stay warm in my arms in sleep.

Blankets Of stardust

Blankets of stardust, showers in sprinkles of gold
Bathing together in starlight, what beauty we behold

Golden stardust that’s magic, and lights up your eyes
Sprinkles all around us, our love gained this prize.

Blankets of stardust to wrap and enfold us so tight
This promise is for lovers, every moonlit night.

The Sparkle of love, sprinkles with each piece of stardust 
Entwined in the sparkles, and showers of golden trust.

Trust never to hurt or cause each other pain
Bathed in showers of stardust and love once again. 

The blanket of stardust that will pillow your head
Laying under the moonlight, no more to dread

Covered with a blanket of stardust, such a magical thing
Surrounded by the sparkles, wrapped as in a golden ring.

The Wall

When I first met you, you were full of pain, so you built up a wall,
and you hid inside, but your life was dark, and you lived in vain.

When you discovered I loved you, and you found out how deep,
that wall began to crumble, and now it's just a heap.

With no wall between us, life has been swell, no longer are you
living in an infernal hell.

Every day I want to sing, and thank the Lord for all He brings,
my love remains ever true, and each passing day I still love you.

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?

First Love

I glanced across the dance floor and saw her standing there
I saw her looking straight at me and I tried not to stare

I was kind of shy back then, for girlfriends, I had none
So when I saw her look at me I thought “is this the one”?

My friend Jim beside me said “Go on, ask her to dance”
And you'd better do it quickly before you lose your chance

My heart was beating rapidly as again I met her gaze
Then I walked in her direction, my mind was in a daze

“Would you care to dance”, (if she said no I would just die)
“Yes, that would be very nice” was her quick reply

I led fair maid onto the floor, put one hand on her waist
And slowly did the box step, while inside my heart raced

I knew right then I was in love, wings were on my feet
I hardly said a word to her til we walked back to her seat

With a smile I thanked her, and with shaking voice asked when
There was another slow one, could we dance again

She looked at me and sweetly said, “well now, that would depend”
“I'll dance if you will promise to introduce me to your friend”

I have promised myself not to love again,
the daughters of eve had inflicted serious pain,

True  love and sincerity are scarce,yes! I know,
but these cold treatments make me feel so low,

Years went by,I refused to fall in love,
hoping that one day a true angel will come from above,

that will wipe my tears in the sea of passion,
and stop this lingering mockery and allusion,

You appeared in my sky with intense rays of light
which make my flowers rise and blossom so bright,

Cold spring water  flows over cave without hindrance,
as beasts of the forest and birds watch this bee-dance,

Whispering in the night brought great succor to my heart;
The rising of the full moon and season come to a start,

You are my diamond;greatly refined and invaluable,
to treat you like a star; I hope I will be much able.


Dedicated to all my poetrysoup friends...You are my stars.

Love Shines in the Dark

Darkness cloaks the curves and lines of your gentle face. I imagine the silhouette of your timeless grace. Effortless is your warm embrace, silence falls with sleep. I only hear your rhythmic breath, familiar and deep. Tasting endless love in night, we drink wedded bliss. In the dark, a touch ignites the passion of our kiss. Wakened 'neath a sprawling black sky, true love calls to me. Sparks fly from the intensity of all we cannot see.

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.

                 Rough hewn smell of male scent
                 Takes her from her books
                 Most good girls zip to bad boys
                 Like fish to nice bright hooks
                 Her safe home was not safe now
                 Hawk eyes now climb her walls
                 Soft breath drew in and out two times
                 She heard the bad boy’s calls
                 Gone was her book mood now
                 The end had a new twist
                 Her safe life fled through rose tipped lips

Lets Dance

Lets Dance

A slow song is playing and we get up to dance
We gel as one, like in a trance

Our bodies so close, our hearts skip a beat
The feeling of warmth, forever to keep

Two bodies sway smooth, slow, as one
He whispers in my ear, I love you hun

Our eyes meet as I give him a kiss
Slow dancing our moves in pure bliss

He holds me close as the song comes to an end
I whisper into his ear, till the next song my friend

I have everything for me

The beauty of you is only one even in the few.
I had seen you through my heart though my eyes were on you.

Your simplicity made me crazy, 
And your presence appears quite hazy.
You came nearby me, even gone apart from me,
But forever resided in my heart of glee.

I find you in my leisure,
Thinking of you feels pleasure.
Near you is where I rove,
And now in your dream I want to grow.

I may not seek your love,
Life will taste like a clove. 
Don’t know what I have for you,
But meeting you, I have everything for me.

Was a time --not long ago
When you begged me sweet and low

“Cast your net upon the sea
Quickly,darling, marry me!”

My heart caught 
and in a minute
My life was soup
And I was in it

A fair eyed man means dangerous shores
& I'm adrift-- mid rocks galore

On a current, flashing fins
You cast your line--
And hook sweet sins

And, at work you cannot think
When fishy eyes blink out a wink

Even friends are not off limits
When tides wash in the vodka gimlets

Do I hate you, yes, I could
Do I hate you, no, I should

A straying man on marriage seas
Navigates adulteries

When asked to re-chart his course
He usually stomps and screams “divorce”


Mixing metaphors and such
Keeps the critics out of ruts


Straying husbands/shagging rabbits
Cannot/willnot change their habits.

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.

Go Away Dear

Good evening my love
My angel sent from above
My love for you would never end
Even if I try to pretend
You will always be the one
Shining my life, a bright sun
You’re my jewel, my star
From you, I can never stay far
I wish we could stay together
Always and forever
But reality is mean
Killing me, cutting my spleen
Because honey we must depart
Our love must fall apart
Because they are insane
Wanting to cause us pain
They would never understand
They have the upper hand
It is a curse unleashed by fate
Us, it always did hate
For it was always in our way
Always leading the fray
But we will never win
Our love will always be a sin
I don’t know why
Honey please don’t cry
One day we will be free
Only us, just you and me
But for now I must go
My face I can no longer show
They will kill me I fear
I love you, but I must go away dear

With admiration for your love

I walk pace the hill of 75 miles
With respect for your person

I swim through an ocean of 75 miles
With determination to be your king

Only to pick you in a city of tenderness

My car tank runs dry on 75 miles

Your love never stops raining dew on me

I am on 75 miles from Lagos to Ibadan
To find you the queen of all women

A New Beginning

We walk the trails, kicking leaves,
wondering if the other believes
that this is a new start for each.
That maybe it is within our reach.

Holding hands, walking slow,
letting feelings tentatively grow.
We are not young, we are not new.
If this is love, its overdue.

A friendship we started some time ago
is becoming something deeper though.
We shall not rush it, we'll patiently wait
and leave it in the hands of fate.

those sparkling eyes that always cheer,
the wrinkling nose that is really you,
the welcomong lips to do what lips do,
I can feel those arms, a warm caress,

the hug that follows each time we meet,
the knowledge that each time we'll rerpeat
to find some time to leave World behind,
for a while, when it is real not in the mind.

Internet romance questions

Where do you see yourself in 5 years?
Do you enjoy a glass of wine or a few beers?

What makes you who you are?
What would you wish on a shooting star?

How would you describe yourself if I was blind?
What is the one thing always on your mind?

What is your worst attribute or flaw?
Do you drink from the glass or use a straw?

What is the number one quality you are looking for?
Would you drink milk from a dairy or must it be from the store?

Water from a bottle or out of the tap?
Do you like our president or is he full of **ap?

Almost Love

Stop and stare as the time stands still. 
The pain hurts, but the silence kills. 

Twisted emotions, this feeling's so strong. 
My body feels weak, but my mind feels headstrong. 

I slip and fall now only to crawl. 
Your eyes told the story like a crystal ball. 

A soft-friendly touch, I feel of your heart.
It's thumping so loud, I'm ripping apart. 

Life makes no sense,this moment so tense.
Contagious emotions are building a fence. 

It tears me down that I can't tear it down.
I've got more to live for, and it's wearing a frown. 

You make my world spin, and you make it all stop.
Goodbyes make it worse, I spin like a top. 

Given no choice but to drive away.
The words left unsaid are too hard to convey.

The click starts to tick, tomorrow comes near. 
I held you so dear that it felt like a year.

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.

Emma Elephant was desperate to become a mum
And have a baby elephant growing in her tum

Unfortunately poor Emma didn’t have a mate
In fact she had never ever even been on a date

So she put on her best dress and went to a dance
Had her heart set on a little romance

Out of the corner of her eye she spied the perfect man
She tried to get his attention by wafting her feather fan 

He was handsome big and strong
With an enormous trunk it was very very long

Their eyes met across the crowded dance floor
They entwined trunks, Emma couldn’t wish for more

Now Emma and her man are husband and wife
She’s expecting her baby and has a perfect life.

So the moral of the story is don’t sit back and wait
Grab each opportunity don’t leave it down to fate

Drops of sweat slip from my furrowed brow
Eyes squint, select a number and let fly now

Miss again, a millimetre is a mile once more
Aimed for triple twenty, only got double four

Silence broken, on alcohol I forever depend

The steel point of eyes bore into my neck
My opponent leaves me a juddering wreck

I lose the match; the wife won’t give me a kiss

There is so much I need to say...
But these words just get in the way.

Will you please then look in my eyes?
In their warmth you will find no lies.

Let them speak to you in my place
Sink in their depths without a trace

Hear them swear my love in a pledge
Let them entice you to that edge

That leads down to my love's abyss
Let my eyes invite you to kiss

Hear them whisper, “Fall into me!
Let this ecstasy set you free!”

Tonight let my eyes be my voice
Hear their plea and make the right choice!

 Like a baby, she screams
Screaming like a radiant rat
Oh my god! Ohs!  To the power of the one
That held her down, the gentle voice in the act of vigour
A voiceless cry singing : no woman no cry

When she saw her mate 
She  feels better to have, the heat that
Warms in a cool night 
She hug, kiss, and caressed 
Offloading herself to the nakedness of the mignight 

When she enters the bed to meet 
The high moving feelings in a hot dig
She voiced, softly in a action packed acts

His Ass A Tale

His ass; a tale each women said.
Of one held high - he rendered it.
Like men of past to honour it.
A rogue like him - a dawn of wit.

They followed him a stern dead hem.
Each judged him; sire'd for him.
To each love they were fair and grim.
And some would say they're all a whim.

Some do bawk and claim him nay.
Most keep circles; waits and times.
Elite approach to spread their chimes.
While late provoke him for his crimes.

One man's wake that goes oblivious.
Her clueless cause for dancing.
Love together comes 'a prancing.
THE END; his soul will wait for lancing.

He never get’s old as a man

He can fly back and forth to never-never land

And take her back to nineteen fifty-seven 

The fifties were a great time in life

Kill Me Dear

The most incredibly ironic scene
To everyone, it is quite obscene
A scene where a lover has to kill
Their soul mate, against their own will
They were trapped in a wicked game
One must die or it would be lame
If they choose not to abide by the rules
Then the world doesn't need more fools
The killing weapon is a gun
So that the injury cant be undone
How is it you're supposed to choose
When your loved one you can't lose?
The two truly loved each other
They can't settle for another
Their code was always and forever
Now, will it ever happen? Never!
She wants them both to stay alive
But she's in denial, both can't survive
She doesn't know what to do
It's just a dream, none of this is true
She closes her eyes wanting to wake
This cruelty she can hardly take
She sits still and cries a river of tears
Struggling to control her own fears
He's already made his choice
But he doesn't want to lose his voice
The pain he's going through is surreal
He wished, it, he could seal
Facing his fears, he walks the line
He convinces himself everything is fine
Walks to her with all his might
His temptation, he must fight
He embraces her, he can't lie
Because one of them has to die
He can't lie and say it'll be okay
Can't charm her with his usual way
He pulls the gun to his head
Logic from his brain has fled
She grabs the gun and yells "no"
The gun has become their mistletoe
Felt like forever, a final kiss
with an eternal bliss
"But honey, you're the one to live
Protecting you is all i have to give"
He puts the gun in her hands
"C'mon do it" is all that he demands
He puts her finger in the trigger
Pulls it, a small bullet with a, damage, bigger
The shot, echoing still in her ear
While he mouthed "kill me dear"

Your tomorrow

Yesterday you brought me flowers,
Since then you had me devoured.
Your voice, your touch I seek at night,
Losing you had always been a fright.
My life, you promised you’d cherish,
Risked in your hands, if it might perish
And when moon shone I’m into sleep
My future, tomorrow, was yours to keep.

That night, we embraced in your charms.
You held me tight, I’m protected and unharmed.
Your vows, easily spoken but I trusted.
Our bodies, our souls, our desires were lust.
With 3 words “I love you”, we’re on my bed.
My sane was lost, I begged, but you went ahead!
Under the moon, my body you were in deep,
I knew my future, tomorrow, was yours to keep.

Today, with a smirk on your face, you came
Said goodbye, thanks for the night and what’s left was my blame.
No matter how bad I wanted you to turn around
You walked away, left me knees on the ground.
One night, memories, your blood left behind.
Why did you leave me? So cruel and unkind. 
And tonight, the moon shone on the tears I’d weep,
But I now know my future, my tomorrow, isn't yours to keep.

One's First Love 2K11

No Fairies, no Genies, nor wishing-well.  
Sorcerer's duplicate not first love's spell.  

No Time-Machine to moments of one's yen;  
Ah, bathe in love for one's first time again!  

With memories one sips Fountain-of-Youth;  
Transporting back one where love first proved truth.

Mixed Marriage

Mixed Marriage By Rick Rucker The sky seems somewhat bluer now, The birds seem a little cheerier, somehow, The grass looks a darker green, More so than I have ever seen, My disposition seems to be more pacific, As to why, I cannot be specific, I have thought about it, of late, It must have begun with my Dream Date, I had gone on a dating site, Hoping to be someone’s Mr. Right, I was hoping for a friend, So that this crushing Loneliness would end, I harbored, in my mind, What I was hoping that I would find, An impossibly perfect set of traits, Which could not be found in twenty mates! I tend to be a little “over the top,” A flaw that I cannot seem to stop, So, I went to meet, at our appointed place, There stood a Goddess, with an Angel’s face! I think we ate, I am not too sure, I could hardly talk, there seemed no cure, I realized at once, That I must have seemed the perfect dunce, Here, sitting across from me, Was as perfect a being as there could be, She was obviously too good for me, Anyone in the room could see, She had everything that I thought important in a mate, And I was going to blow it on our first date! We got through our meeting, and she finally left, Leaving me standing there, bereft, My head was all a-whirl, I had just lost The Perfect Girl! I could not, for a week, summon the guts to call, Sure that she would not remember me at all, But, to my surprise, she would give me another try, Though I could not figure why, All of this was months ago, Perhaps, the rest of this you know, We have bought a house, and moved our things, Soon, we will be exchanging Rings, We will be testing if we can, Live happily ever after, as an Angel, and a Man!

How I Tried On Valentine's

How I tried on Valentine's
all over the many years.
I've lost all of my Valentine's
and most of them in tears.

How I tried on Valentine's
to find my merry mate.
Working through the ugly
and possible first-rate.

How I tried on Valentine's
Forgetting all my failures.
Moving to the next one
oblivious of the bailers.

How I tried on Valentine's
to settle for much less.
Hoping that the next one
Would change and reassess.

How I tried on Valentine's
to go the other way.
Hoping that they'd chase me
finding me as clay.

How I tried on Valentine's
to say what's on my mind.
Shouting out my arrogants
and baiting the wrong kind.

How I tried on Valentine's
to make a friend at first.
Only to be shunned again
by girls who want you worst.

How I tried on Valentine's
to wait for the right time.
Left to find my girl
on another's dime.

How I tried on Valentine's
to spin a small milk bottle.
Landing on a stranger
foreign without throttle.

How I tried on Valentine's
to meet up with a bore.
When all she kept on talking 'bout
was nothing and no more.

How I tried on Valentine's
coveting one man's wife.
Only to release her
sharing in man's strife.

How I tried on Valentine's
Loving her full body.
Finding that she had no mind
and wished she had a hobby.

How I tried on Valentine's
Waiting to make love.
Ending up with others
When push came into shove.

How I tried on Valentine's
Seeking out a hottie.
Making me a sickly boy
who's doctor now called naughty.

How I tried on Valentine's
Expecting an easy date.
Getting just the opposite
but figuring it too late.

How I tried on Valentine's
Jailbait in short skirts.
Quick to kiss what doesn't last
and limits to their flirts.

How I tried on Valentine's
making the first move.
Only to find I'm ignored
for others in her grove.

How I tried on Valentine's
forcing my own way.
Told by a cold shoulder
How I could not stay.

How I tried on Valentine's
two instead of one
Only to be shot down
and told that I am done.

How I tried on Valentine's
Perfect to a tee.
Wanting only to be seen
in a bar as fee.

How I tried on Valentine's
Cautious and carefree.
Never knew what she was thinking
or who was bird or bee.

How I tried on Valentine's
remembering what I've learned.
Speaking words of wisdom
and loves that have been spurned.

True Love indeed

To Love someone with all your hear is one thing
To love someone with all you have is another thing
To love some with all you could be is so sweat
But to Love each other to the point you can't live 
without one another it is true love indeed.

The Windmiller's Guest

From his  lofty perch, his favorite viewing place
He saw her approach before he could clearly see her face

A charming lady was she, dressed in her day gown
A straw bonnet lusciously adorned her beautiful crown

He considered her his beloved darling
She cherished their time wanting minutes to stretch forever

If he proposed marriage, would her answer be yes
A bride of a humble miller, his offering detest

Adoringly she looked upon his handsome chest
Love would win in the end, she would not longer be just his day guest

What A Lovers Kiss Can Be

Her body is the fire
That lights my candle of desire
A roaring flame formed in the night
Her beauty needs no other light
Than what we make when put together
So hot even in freezing weather
We fill the house with steamy heat
Every time our bodies meet
By morning neither she nor I
Could undo the knotted tie
Of labored limbs left so tired
From a night solely inspired
By my lovely lovers curves
That pressed so sweetly on my nerves
While fighting sleep our eyelids compressed
And she fell to sleep first on my chest
I followed shortly her to rest
But when I woke she had dressed
And left me with only a look
That pierced my heart with string and hook
Still slack when through the door she leaves
But soon that string works and weaves
Its way around my heart to pull
It and my body to full
Sprint after the lost love
That sleep cruelly deprived me of
I searched the streets until night came
And then I saw the tiny flame
Of that beauty shine far away
But still to me as bright as day
and with my love she was persuaded
To chase the romance once evaded
Then between us the heat did grow
Until on touch our lips did glow
So bright in darkness for all to see
What a lovers kiss can be

Love to Hear Her Laugh

 Love to Hear Her Laugh 

 Love to hear her laugh each day 
 Whether sky is sunny or gray; 
 Every morning, noon and night 
 Her laughter is such a delight. 

 In the shower, so good she sings; 
 At breakfast much joy voice brings; 
 Laughs at movies we have often seen
 Either on TV or a theater screen. 

 Laughing and singing go hand in hand; 
 Together are grand throughout the land
 And always love holding her real tight; 
 A day with her makes everything alright.

A Lover's Night

Sparkle sparkle flakes in flight.
Sparkle sparkle crests in white.
Snowflakes falling blowing bright.
Side to side in squalls pressed tight.

Cooling winds from upward gusts.
Frosted ice falls down in thrusts.
Foreheads cold in clammy rusts.
Frozen stiff 'till something busts.

Banks weighed down like heavy flour.
Snowflake pieces charged with power.
Hills and valleys waves that tower.
Simple curves much like a flower.

Dim and hazy light of moon.
Yellow mustard simply strewn.
Calm and quiet for a tune.
A lover's night to make us swoon.

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.

I sit all day and dream of you
Wonder if you think of me too

I can picture your smiling eyes
They are so intense they hide no lies

Guess we all have got a past
Failed attractions that didn’t last

Would you run if I called your name?
If we met would we feel the same

Would I surrender to your charms
And be content in your loving arms

Time and tide keep us far apart
Are you the one who stole my heart?

True Romance Does Not Involve Your Pants

True Romance Does Not Involve Your Pants By Rick Rucker True Romance can be shared on the dance floor, Moving to music, nothing more, Making Love, and sex are great, But not all that you should share with your mate, Every time I see My Love, I hear trumpets, from Above, Her face is like a work of art, I cherish the memory when we’re apart, Sometimes, I squeeze her far too tight, I think it might be from fright, That this is all a dream, If I awaken, without Her, I would scream! To think that I have found this Love, so late in Life, That she would love me, consent to be my Wife, We will marry, and right then, I will be the Luckiest of Men!

Now come my Love Let us softly go

There is no doubt your husband is a pig
I tell you now, to me he’s not so big
Have no fear my strong right arm
will keep you safe from harm

Now come my love, let us softly go
hand in hand out in the snow
My love will always keep you warm
Even through this dreadful storm
and I to you will give a hug
to keep you safe and sound and snug

We will live in harmony
and you, at last, shall be free
forever from that swine
so full of hate and wine
but now, you are mine to cherish
If he comes he, I swear, will perish

Nights of More

   The smell of aftershave lingers in the air
   Warm sensations start deepening there

   Dampened hair from a shower , still wet
   Thoughts of adventure those relived or be newly met

   Long night of passion filled gaze
   Soft touches , whispers in front of firelight's blaze

   Gentle needings met his gazed upon eyes.
   Soft sheets slipping down her smooth silken thighs

   Hearts sent to heights , left to soar 
   The night to remember , a long night of more

   Moonlight casts down her heavenly dew
   Two lovers demanding, embraced , just hidden from view

   Gone , the world outside , the here and now
   Love's escaped breaths needing , seeking the how

   Heightened needs frantically taunt
   Needs of lovers heart's deep darkened wants

   Simmering desires being unleashed 
   Her warrior , her guard , her hero , her beast

   Taming her lover , No , she thinks not
   Flame honed , fired up , let loose to run hot

   Quickening breaths , rhythm the floor
   Love begins again the dance , the night of Amor

Is that the sound of a train whistling
Or, the sound of my heart a pumping

As I espy you waiting on the platform
I wonder if you’re the vision of reform

En route to San Diego and looking fine   
Rolling in motion on track twenty nine

Railroaded with me, our steamy desires   
Threaten to drag this trolley through fire

Are you real?  Can I touch? Just one hug    
While the train steams away chug a chug
Let’s make love, while we rock the caboose 
Two hearts, one great start, oh great Zeus!

We’ve arrived in great shape, so let us stay 
Together molded as the potter and his clay

You can't change your past but you can learn from it
Its not about dwelling there, but more so what you earn from it
Sometimes I wish I hadn’t let others influence my prior choices
But other times I'm thankful for those few truthful voices

Guiding me in the right way, letting me know my wrong
Creating the fight inside me, changing the tune of my song

I wish you could see me now, and how much I've progressed
Now I see past my accomplishments, where my faults lay to rest

Blinded by reflections, who knew the mirror was convex
What I thought was simple and obvious, was much more complex

Today I look back and remember, how could I ever forget
How you were my satisfaction, but now you're my regret.

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.

Who Is She

She is so and very pretty
And a bit too witty
She has a bright smile
Making every moment worthwhile
She brings out from me a side
Too good for me to hide
I'm under her lovely spell
When did she cast it? I can't tell
But I do know how
Known a long time ago, not now
She did it with her eyes
Them, with magic, she dyes
Their power incredible
Making her irresistible
Her overflowing hair
Its beauty, too much for me to bear
Enters the mighty fate
Just when things are going great
I lose my memory, my mind
Information I can't find
To my condition there is no cure
They say its cause I'm poor
But I know someone in front of me
I know her, but who is she?

Betrayal apology

Betraying a friend is wrong
I should have known this all along
For I should have given you my trust
Instead I screamed and cussed
So to my dismay
To this very day
All I can think is I am sorry
Just know my eyes are starry
Because every time I look at you
I see what I almost blew
And it make me sad to think
That all in a blink
You could be just gone
And I would be lonely for so long
That all I try to say
Although it may be cliche
I love you, from your boy Jay <3

Chosen Mortal Secrets

To see what I can become is a death without dyeing.
Here and now I let you know, have no powers of flying.
Powers I was born with are truly magical and beyond.
Incantations I speak are from the old language in bond.
Bonded to the facts that self-gain, comes back three fold,
This seal in the book that has been guarded and untold.
I shall not gain love from any spell that I should make.
Neither shall I change or sway anything for my sake.
Though upon my eighteenth birthday, love came for me.
Now I must choose magical powers or my love for thee.
My heart knows the answer, so thus I choose mortality.
So I close the book, ring the bell, light the candle internally.
Now you know my secret I have held as well my diversity.
I shall love you forever and be your husband beyond eternity.

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

My Lady Love

My rose, my soul, my heart's delight,
Such treachery this wintry night!
My fathers men hath taken thee
And I know not if thou'llst e're be free.

A spy was in the wood that day
When I met with thee and at last did say
How you set me alight with thy smile and thy voice;
How I'd gladly wed thee, were I given a choice.

The man heard my confessions and fled to the king
And said, "Noble sire, dire news I must bring!
Thy son the lord prince is smitten indeed.
But 'tis a peasant girl who has sown love's seed."

As prince I may not marry as I might wish.
Ah! wealth and pow'r are a bittersweet dish.
This is the reason thou wast sent away
But I will come swiftly as soon as I may.

By AnnikaOakinnA

I now gather men who'll support my endeavour,
Who're loyal to me, and we'll all stick together.
We'll whisk thee away, and then thee and I'll marry.
But we must do it quick, not a moment to tarry.

Once we are wedded in Our Father's eyes
My father shant dare bring about our demise.
He'll have to accept that one just can't stand by
And watch, as their love is dispatched to the sky.

And my love, thou'llt be queen! Ah! sweet heavens all bless.
Thou'll be marvelous indeed in thy coronation dress
As in any other, of any shape or hue.
Such is thy beauty, because, I love you.

We Both Agreed

We Both Agreed

I remember when she had awoken
And hair on head was gently stroking
While I wrote more poems for her to read
Which were well-written we both agreed

What is it that all my poems need now?
Should I try to touch them up somehow?
Or only add a little love here and there
About my marriage and for those who care.

How about the time we first had met?
Or maybe something even better yet
When we married and honeymoon went on
And kissed each other from dusk to dawn.

An evening we enjoyed which was great
And next morning woke up rather late
Now that you were my most fabulous fan
I'm glad I now am now your only man.

It was always you who stimulated me so
More than whole world will ever know
He does keep devil away when discouraged
And by God I am greatly encouraged. Name: jthorn5656

Let me Be

Let me be your muse…
I’ll give color to your blues
Let me be your song…
When everything goes wrong
Let me be your light…
To chase the demons of night
Let me be your smile…
When nothing seems worthwhile
Let me be your dream…
When all your monsters scream
Let me be your drink…
When you’re too parched to think
Let me be your fire…
When there’s unfulfilled desire
Let me be your power…
Gentle like a flower
Let me be your air…
When you need tender care
I’m not asking to be your lover…
I’m not asking to be your friend…
I just want you to let me be….
Everything you are to me!

Lover's Corral

I have waited centuries for your touch,
And even now I can barely get enough.

I cry to you, baby don’t ever leave,
For you are all I need to believe.

Believe in this journey they call life,
I can no longer feel the tip of the knife.

When with you my wounds heel fast,
I am finally ready to forget the past.

Never have I felt this rush before,
A true sensation I can’t ignore.

I feel younger, stronger, prouder,
I won’t hold it in, I shout it louder.

Skin tight, our temperatures fuse,
A race for you is one I will never lose.

Only a Rose

Only a Rose, when touched by love Can make our home like heaven above Only a word, when said with grace Can embolden the heart and lift the face Only a touch, on a hand lain Can free the mind and lift soul’s pain Only a deed, no matter how small When given in love, is worth it all Only a smile, given to cheer Can brighten the cheek and banish all fear Only a hand, when clasped in mine Can make all the heartache worth the time Only your step, when firm by my side Can make my heart leap, and fear subside Only your joy, so precious to me Can wipe all my tears, and set my soul free Only our love, faithful and true Can hold us both close, me and you

A Study in Equinoxes

Beautiful Venus smiled upon her Mars
Diving through time and space, falling from stars

With hooded eyes she moved to entice him
Green hips waving about, a flower stem

When Spring revealed her kingdom to his awe
At last Jack Frost's cold heart began to thaw

They slowly sway together, building trust
and into the virile clay he did thrust

Sweet succulent nectar she did siphon
In full sun, the fruit began to ripen

He grew much stronger, harvesting the field
Took such pride in the bounty it did yield

But time caught up to him and he grew old
Autumn leaves mourned his light that now shone cold

Venus held him close and they danced once more
his body weakened and her waters tore

Taking one last gasping breathe, another
 The wailing son now proclaims her mother

Not necessarily mythologically accurate...but a cute little story about the seasons.

New Senses

ghost like on my back
Turn my body liquid
As ripples on a sun drenched lake
Ruled by none 

Stands prone before a closet
Wondering what to wear
Must we really rise?
I was so happy there,
To meet the day. 

None beyond the bed
Nothing forced
Shout joy until we're hoarse
With nothing spoken nothing said
I saw it in your eyes
I heard it in your sighs

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.

she was hot - like a menopausal flash
he was hard - like arteriosclerosis

limber lumbar but an ancient memory
a touch senile, maybe, a touch unsensory

and yet the sparks still sparkled
in eyes that cataracts encircled 

old flames popped from recollections
of wanton desired seductuous affections

desiring what's called dirty, before becoming dirt
flaunting flirty, hungering each other's desserts

s l o w l y they stood as erect as they could
gnarled hands came together, tactfully understood

it might be their last chance - last dance
last night lust - of their senior romance

while everyone else was babbling and talking
they quietly departed and away went walking

past the station where nurses hunched typing
past security, past the ornery old griping

out to the absence of society's luminescence
out past their own - perceived obsolescence

under sky, wisps of cloud, under far distant suns
they found clearing to finish, what nature'd begun

spread out a blanket, helped each other down
patiently, s l o w l y, made love on the ground

her breasts hanging low, her pubic hair gray
her craving for him to go all the way

and he, sight poor, gently reached out to her
and tasted her nipple, french-kissing connoisseur

she spread desire open to Mother Nature's all
he inserted desire, quietly moaned a faint call

and they both reveled in what life had given them
the desire to tempt - the acquiescence to be tempted

Equinox Love

Her presence as cool as autumn breeze,
Her grey color eyes do faithfully tease.

Her kiss as soft and gentle as floating leaves,
Her caress as warm as the one she receives.

Autumn colors perfect her body’s movements.
With precious curves, needing no improvements,

Her curious laugh that sparkles like the morning dew,
Certain words she speaks that deliver clever queue.

Even her slight anger intensifies my love so deep.
Falling in love in the fall places all issues asleep.

Autumn romance sets a warm tone before cold arrives.
Truly in this time of year, love endures and survives.

When Two Hands Fit Like Ours Do

When two hands fit like ours do, palm to palm and fingers laced,
The world sits, undesired; all I need is in your face.
When mornings, bleak without you, find your voice and make reply,
The Sun is milk and honey rising in the sea foam sky.
When I am sat beside you, close enough to feel at ease,
I'm lost and found quite simply in your eyes, the way you breathe.
When two hands fit like ours do, there's perfection in the hold,
And each will have the other with their lover's band of gold.

Steel Bars

A bedroom should be pleasant
a place where futures are conceived
where wonderful dreams in their effervescence are woven and believed.

when dreams aren't loved, supported and nurtured,
they are cast aside along with the future.
weeds now grow instead of flowers,
rhapsodies of life to be,
has lost all of its wondrous powers.

it is at that time the bedroom is changed.
where windows once stood with freedom's form.
steel bars are now in the window frame and
the factory for dream weaving has been transformed.

the mill of fabrics has been shut down,
the thread has dry rot and can not bound.
there will be no more sewing of seams,
for love is dead, and so are the dreams.
imaginary, ha you think so?
steel bars of betrayal, oppression & humiliation ....
believe me because I know.

imaginary... ha.. you think so?
steel bars of heartache, tyranny, anguish and disbelief .....
believe me because I know.

imaginary ... facsimiles .... replicas..... 
do you believe these steel bars not to be true ?
they are there ..... believe me, i'll give you a clue.

bedroom walls which could tell many tales,
now bleed and cry.
smashing freedom as do all jails,
with its boarders wondering why?

a million pieces of devastation...
dreams of love are now only mutilations.
a retardation of two hearts and souls.
hearts once joined are now at opposite poles.

so the bedroom turns from a happy place to sad.
with bars of steel that are eternally had.
bars of steel that destroy and breed hatred.
bars of steel that satan deems sacred.

victory can be gained over those bars of steel.
to conquer that demon, love must prevail.

dream dreams of love, 
and sew with the strongest of thread.
weave your fabric of love,
the dream mill must be started again.
make room in your heart, soul and head......
for the dream weaver........................ 
the dream weaver returns triumphant again!

My Each Fingertip

My Each Fingertip

Whole world was at my each fingertip
And another pen I hard had to grip
As words did flow out on each page
Looking like star performing on a stage.

Drama in each poem it did contain
And I wrote another again and again
To meet someone's desire and satisfy
A sad feeling when someone did die.

Maybe it might be for enjoyment
About someone giving you a hint;
God means all the world to me;
To write, He  gave me the opportunity.

The fall proposal

The foliage resembles you more than me,
As I hold you under this sycamore tree,

Your vibrant smile dims out the countless shades,
Your ocean filled eyes makes all else fade,

Just like the fire place inside that is burning,
My heart is a flame that is constantly yearning,

 If God knows every sparrow that falls from the sky,
Then he must know that this is the perfect day for you and I,

As the leaves quietly dance around your porcelain face,
I long to have more than just a seasonal taste,

Suddenly, as the breeze picks up in pace,
On one knee I proclaim my love in this place.

An Aura She Is

My eyes this evening are delighted by what they see
An aura, a Spanish maiden, dances in front of me

Flowing locks of darkened curls sway left to right
Towards me she moves in wonder on this Scottish winter night

Her eyes in penetration my soul now captured so
My hand she takes in hers to the floor we wanting go

Shoulder to shoulder we dance, aroma of she so close
Her perfumed nape delights as our evening gracefully flows

Whispers are softly shared amidst touches of soft caress
Closer and closer we hold, in dance our bodies impress

On this Scottish winter night, an aura dances with me
Two souls finally together, perhaps it was meant to be

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.

A Lover's Plaint

We met by chance
at the local dance.
One innocent glance
to start romance.

It was just one look
that’s all it took.
But we were not free
My God what can calm me?

You know that I love you.
You know that I want you.
Why can’t we be
together? As lovers should be.

I want to walk with you
hand in hand as lovers do
Why can’t we be
together? As lovers should be

I want to be with you
and lie as lovers do
Why can’t we be
together? As lovers should be

Our love will never die

Our love will never die
it's not a joke or a lie
like a ribbon our love will
stay tie
again I say our love will never die

take one guess in no time we can
Overcome this mess
to perfect our love like your beauty dress

our love is stronger than the ocean
a love that will stay in one motion
to start over again is my notion
to gain your heart for my portion
is my everlasting devotion.

She Already Was

She Already Was

She was good looking and so properly dresses
And had confessed how much I was impressed
With such a fine face and figure to go along
All things in right place and nothing was wrong.

Into her property all seemed to positively fit
Take my eyes off of her could not start to quit
Both of them on her had become completely glued
What I saw was beauty in everything I viewed.

Writing pretty poem about here had just started
And soon my fingers were tired and also smarted
My mind, right words was trying to retrieve
God said beware of news you are about to receive.

I stammered and over her had incessantly clamored
Being so in love with her and totally enamored
Then there was a terrible thing that tore me apart 
Since a child, she had been someone else's sweetheart.

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

I Love You

I dream of your touch while you're away
I think of your voice all through the day

I dream of the day I can fall asleep beside  you
I think of whenever you say I Love You

I dream you're with me every night
Laying down and holding me tight

You're the reason my heart is whole
You're the love inside my soul

I think about you night and day
And i know it seems I always say

I never want to see you go
I love you and I hope you know

I love you with all my heart
And I hope we'll never be apart

We'll be together for all time
And I want you to know you'll always be mine.

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.

Is Your Heart On Ice?

Is your heart on ice? Are you willing to pay the price That it costs to make it thaw To jump into Love’s waiting maw? Have you got a fear of heights, But fear far less the lonely nights That living without Love would bring Alone in darkness, afraid to sing? How do we find ourselves like this, Getting close, but afraid of bliss? Has someone chewed your heart to bits, And it, in a locked container sits? If “One bitten, and twice shy” Has you now afraid to try Will you ever learn to sing Love’s song, while you are on a swing? Or are you too scared to fall So that you won’t risk it all? Your heart is tougher than you think It can recover in a blink Once it begins to pump again, You’ll forget about past pain. How do you get it to start? That is really the fun part! You will hear many tips, But I think it only takes two lips Exploring yours without a care Enjoying every moment there. If you use a little tongue It will make you feel quite young And wild to feel such emotion A mind massage, without lotion! If you think where it will lead, And that thought you thus heed, Romance will die in a minute Love is lost, you will not win it. True Love is something that you feel, It matters not if it is real, It cannot exist alone, Like calling yourself on the phone! It takes another willing soul To let you see the picture whole. Once you both get into it, At the sidelines, you’ll not sit! Soon you will sing Love’s praises, Although there are concerns it raises. Will this person love me for all time? Or for an interlude sublime? In point of fact, it matters not, What you wanted to get, you got! Your heart again, it is beating, Even as your love is retreating. That person did an angel’s job, And did not steal or rob, And gave you once again A reason to say “Amen.”

All that gathers are dreams and lust. 
Yet we both recollect to dust. 
Snarls and entrapments our enemies conceive. 
Smiles and smirks; they all deceive. 

Come onto me and never betray. 
Speedily swift and never delay. 
The long-lasting love, hidden is, within fortresses. 
Seekers we are, dwelling within whimsical wildernesses. 

Trust me, do you? Do you have faith? 
I will never disappoint. Promise, I do; in comfort we bathe.
The doubters say we live an enchantment.
They criticize and condemn the lovers’ entailment. 
Fly and soar we will.
Laugh and cry upon happiness’s hill.
Live and die together we shall,
Because you’re my only love and truest pal.

The Tracks of life

I was once a little train, sitting by the track, Listening to the freight yard’s roar and all the rushing clack When one day came steaming by an engine large and brave My heart did a quiver leap, my wheels a twitter gave Every day when passing by, the more our friendship grew With each fleeting whistle blast, and more each time it blew Then one day in passing, upon his track I went Joyfully to meet him, from wither he was sent Blasting from the distance, an airy cloud of steam I rushed forth to meet him, the engine of my dream Then with shock and wonder, my joy was gone alack! For though we both were meeting, he wasn’t on my track Off into the distance, he chugged and puffed away Sweeping with him pieces of my broken heart that day Often now I wonder, will he come anon? Or was this a chance meeting, and now again he’s gone? The tracks of life are tangled, in the freight yard of our race We meet other engines that hold both heart and place How to live? I wonder, when through our lives there sail Many other engines, that aren’t upon our rail Will we grow quite bitter, when those meetings on the tracks Seem to mock the aching heart for all the love it lacks? May each little engine take heed to what I bade This life below is scattered, with meetings on the grade Take each passing whistle not as one of gloom Pushing back the others, and making itself room I will always cherish, that engine bold and brave Remembering now with fondness, the joy to me he gave But now into the distance, I hear upon the breeze That fleeting cry of freedom, upon which my heart did seize Once every while, I gaze sadly down his track But in my little engine heart, he’s never coming back And so I hold those memories close, and never do I fail For God had a reason for our meeting on the rail

Clear sky above, crisp breeze of dawn
gently blowing on our sun-tanned skin.

Lost in the autumnal beauty before us,
we hear the leaves crackle as fire logs.

No bird songs to greet the golden-colored sunrise,
only two lonely souls walking as it grows and shines.

Many distant thoughts of Yule and gifts
escape from us with only joy to embrace. 

The sunshine feels warm as the morning advances, 
a few clouds appear and cast a shadow on the waves. 

This path leads to a rolling hill which we ardently seek,
from here dreams never flee to disarm love's heartbeat.

Sleepless Dreams

Some nights, no sleep, I lay awake, I still feel like I'm dreaming. In darkened rooms, I slip away, my soul and heart start scheming.
Your face, a thought, as I get lost in memories of our past. Smile and sigh, no worries or lies, I know it will not last.
For daylight brings, the truth it seems, no more fantasies awake. Reality shows, coldness grows, the morning my heart does break.
Throughout the day, I'll ponder or pray of happy times ahead. But soon as darkness comes again, sleepless dreams within my bed.

When they met, their pairing unlikely.
From two worlds, stories differed slightly.

Into the forest ahead they go 
He observes her, rosy cheeks aglow.

The pair ensconced in equal lushness, 
where the Redwoods grow, the moss touchless.

Streaks of fresh sunlight mismatched in strength
cast upon their shoulders from great length.

Today she is his and he is hers, 
no aches in their hearts remain uncured. 

Unspoken words dance between their lips, 
Looks exchanged, his touch on her hips.

Butterflies linger, often they do.
She smiles, eyes soften, her hope renewed.

Their start described as remarkable.
When face-to-face, their love thinkable.

Love's Duet

Love's Duet by Rick Rucker Does your heart, to you, sound like a spinet? Ever louder, by the minute? My diagnosis, sad to say, Someone has stolen your heart away! What's that you say, Inside your chest it still does stay? How can it be both gone and here? You do not comprehend, I fear. Once it has been taken, All your beliefs will be shaken. All of those things you “knew,” Suddenly don't seem so true. A heart is an instrument for others to play, In choice of tune, you have no say. Will that person play love's sonnet? Or only “taps” will the other play upon it? Will it be a concerto, brave and full. Or will it leave you in a lull? If the player is a master, You may still avert disaster. If the player is tried and true, A duet will you both “do.” Love's sweet song should go on forever, Rising always, ending never. How long can forever be, Perhaps past Eternity? It's in the hands of The Fates, Maybe past The Pearly Gates? I hope you find an accompanist that knows How to play you, head to toes. Starting softly, slowly, Probably with whispers, uttered lowly, Moving on, a little quicker, Ever mindful of your ticker. Better to not move too fast, After all, you want this to last! Suddenly you've lost your sight, You don't know if it's day or night. Feeling that you're in a haze, Your nerves on edge, your brain, a daze. Now the tempo has increased, All inhibitions have been released, You want this to go on forever, Rising always, ending never! Were it to continue, just like this, You would never know the bliss, Of the musician's artful finish, The one that takes, yet won't diminish, The feelings that this is our reward, For doing work, and being bored, By the petty things in life, For this moment that feels like a knife, Coursing through your brain, Bringing that exquisite pain, Was that all a dream, Or did you just hear someone scream? Rising now, to applause, The musician must have been the cause, Of the warmth that does flow, All over you, from head to toe. Enlivened now, but blissfully spent, You know that this was no accident, Like musicians have always said, To get good, practice often 'til you're dead!

I Could Tell

I Could Tell

I could tell from my first interview
My dream would be coming true
Liked me and my guitar I brang
And each joyful song I just sang.

Even said how handsome I was
Like everyone else always does;
Looked up and shiny star I saw;
Reminded me of my ma and paw.

Dreamed about a good looking girl;
Sure loved to spin and then to twirl
And when my eyes first met hers
Wanted to be sure what else occurs.

When the dance had finally ended,
Next thing happened that I intended;
Found her slipper made out of glass
And ended up marrying the lovely lass.

Power To Burn

The power to burn, this much may be true,
But tell me you know I could never hurt you.
Fire's not in my nature, it favours your name,
The stars have dictated that you are the flame.

I could be the worser, my sign is of air,
Changing, and fragile, and hard to ensnare.
But such things can change when these elements meet,
A fire with no air cannot generate heat.

Can This Go On

As friends forever to be. 
Sacred broken rules inside sexuality. 
Forever we were mistaken drifter apart. 

Can this go on loving you my friend. 
Or is it wrongfully wrong should we make it end.  

The feeling of love at friendships sake. 
Did we go to far when we love made. 

Does it need to stop emotions so confused. 
Was it a mistake did we just love use. 

Closing me eyes i will never forget. 
Tell you the truth I have no love regrets. 

Walking forward was it just a need. 
Hoping its just a flower a sprouted see.  

Can this go on loving you my friend.
Or is it wrongfully wrong should it end?

When I Was A King

Woken was the king to a reality when he was once great. 
He rises to his feet to rise to the occasion, but only to find out he’s years too late. 

You see, all good things must come to an end. 
There are more things important than the money you spend.

Time is on the side to those who side with it.
Don’t blink because beauty you just might miss it.

The beast is the truth, and the lie you told yourself.
With love there is no need for wealth as I always say myself.

The throne slips through your fingers like sand.
No longer do you have a queen to hold your hand.

They say it’s better to have loved & lost than to have never loved at all.
I disagree because I see her face on every girl as she is my downfall.

However, you cannot force a king to rule. 
He might be cut out to jester or be a petty fool. 

The queen may never have been a queen to start.
She might take your riches & rob your heart.

I was once a king…
But I’m nothing more than a boy lost in love with no hand for my ring. 

I guess love had my imagination in an odd place.
Either that or I should have seen the signs when you wanted “space.”

My mother always said my first love would be a fling…
But 3 years later I still feel like she was my queen & I was her king…

Broken Hearted - Lets Get Started

Broken Hearted? – Let’s Get Started

I guess you’re wondering where to start
Fixing up your broken heart

First things first – and here I’m guessing
Just stop and count all your true blessings

Find a loving dog or cat
Give it all the love you lack

Write a scathing, hateful letter
Burn the letter, you’ll feel better

Find a shoulder you can cry on
That one true friend you can rely on

Look up old friends – go have some fun
Take extra care of number one

When you feel down and have the blues
Dance in your briefs like young Tom Cruise

Give yourself time – you will recover
Believe me you will find another

Will Ye My Lad

Will ye my lad, come sail with me Cresting softly the swelling sea? Hand to the oar, and face to the bow Sail we the ocean, high wave and low. The wind at our cheek, the briny sea’s dip Rocks our frail bark, and threatens our ship. The heave of the wave, our watery bower, Lulls us at night with its sleepy power. Day after day sweep we the earth, ‘Till safe we sail to our launching berth. The lightning above, the worrisome gale, None hinder us as onward we sail. Straight and true, our craft does soar Paddle we fast, spreading our oar. Will ye my lad come sail with me? None hath lived so wondrously free! All fears behind, great joy to espy, Cruise we to glory, both you and I!

Dance in the dark

Dancing in the moonlight, 
your feet are on mine 
Our arms wrapped tight,
as our bodies intertwine
We move slowly in unison,
the feelings grow strong
Two hearts beating as one, 
to Norah's sweet love song

God's Gift

It has been determined since creation.

From an almighty mind, a prolific conception.

And so has become the greatest of all inventions.

Eve, the prototype of such calculations,

Was destined to yield seamless replacements.

A perfect replica? Never such compliments.

Until a beautiful spring and a wonderful day

Witnessed her birth, and so was her name.

God's Gift to the world and mankind,

The ideal being and the perfect design,

With eyes that pierce the warrior's armor

Straight through the heart and steal his honor.

Able to borrow a smile from the sorrowful,

Or find the weakness of the powerful.

A blessing in her name and a fruit of a miracle,

She has become more than the revelation of an oracle.

And here she is, the pinnacle of womankind,

Ready to reach her prime and be enshrined.

God's gift to the world and every nation,

She is most worthy for conspicuous veneration.

Now In Heaven

Now In Heaven

Here I have been sitting in my high-chair, Throwing food here, there and 
everywhere, And ended up getting a few things on me; My hands of course, 
frowning face and knee.

Mama looked mean with ferocious fire in her eyes, Then before you knew it 
started to realize, Long ago thought of doing a similar thing, And many 
memories back would bring.

She remembered being about the same age, When dad had melanoma not 
sure what stage, He had hard time breathing and started gasping; His 
memory and health were now lapsing.

Took him to local hospital late at night; Tried to hold back tears with all my 
might, When I say him so still laying there, Family and friends were crying 

Next morning found his body dead in bed; Buried him and over grave prayers 
were said, And pretty soon before each of us knew, Was an angel in heaven, 
that is true.

Now every day when he looks down on us, Said to himself, they shouldn't 
raise a fuss; While I was at church praying and kneeling, Looked up and his 
face was on the ceiling.

At me, seemed to be smiling so sweet; Said in heaven we both are bound to 
meet; By God every day am being properly fed, Also sure like lying here in my 
new bed.

So dear, yourself should start to prepare, Clothes and things scattered, here,

there and everywhere, So they will look okay when left behind, And thank the 
priest who to us was kind.

Forget what happened and in heaven will be, With your soul from sin finally 
set free; While here in heaven then take one last, Long look back at our 
humble, happy past. 

Sun will awake, and after, each day is done, You had been my fine and 
precious one, Who I loved very much and oh so dear; Now in heaven , once 
more, are nice and near.

For me, you were my fine, precious one, Who I always will love much and very 
dear, Are in our arms once more nice and near.

Your expressionisms

Babe I can’t forget your exhibitionisms!
Van Gogh’s paintings are peanuts to your expressions!

A heavenly  morning  springtime bliss.
Early in our day,   sun’s kiss
Wakes the frosty path we’ve passed.
In  moving  shimmering  mist  it’s grassed.
It breathes its first passion.
Our journey has begun.

To where? Or how or when? Who says?
Floating  fingers  there of  haze

Point to unknown fields and dales.
Our footsteps light will leave  no trails.
In swirling, billowing, sun-white veil.
We lose the track of this green vale.
White  gossamer of breath,
Obscures our grassy path

But  fog and passion dissipate.
Early  breath can  sublimate.

The morning’s stronger  rays.
Allow more  focused gaze.
More grassy and  lush 
Growing  clearer.   Hush!
The path tells us where to stray - 
Reaching, stretching all the way 

From the green vales of  Eden
To  the  sunlit  dales of  heaven.
