New Stars Are Formed

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

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

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

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

The Devil's Tide

I looked up at a silver moon 
Peering through a cloud of misty gloom 
As we sailed across the Atlantic Sea 
That fateful night in June 
And as I stood upon the bow 
A furrow crossed my troubled brow 
When I saw a dying star fall from the sky 
As the wind out of the north 
Began to cry 
'Twas then with fearful heart 
I came at last to realize 
That we were sailing 
On a wave of ill-tidings 
Known as 'The Devil's Tide' 
For no omen of the sea 
Brought more fear than thee 
A fallen star -  a silver moon 
Together in the month of June 
If legend true would surely bring us doom 
So with no trace of land in sight 
We sailed onward through the night
I -  the Captain 'Louie Lou' 
With my faithful crew 
Aboard the 3 mast schooner 'Angel - of the Blue' 
On canvas wings we flew 
Upon the wailing wind that blew 
Then suddenly a hush of malaise 
Crushed the summer night
Filling all the crew with dreadful fright 
As all the stars in heaven lost their light 
And the silver moon dipped completely out of sight 
Leaving us to drift without guidance 
To our unknown plight 
An eerie sound began to roll out of the west 
Growing louder and louder as we held our breath 
Until it was upon us and the ship began rise 
As we looked in horror into the Devil's eye 
As the Angel of the Blue began to fly 
Up the Devil's breast she climbed 20 fathoms high 
One by one the Angel's wings were torn away 
As she fought to save us from the Devil's rage 
Screams of horror falling from her timber sides 
As the crew fell into the Devil's tide 
And I -  tethered to the helm -  watched them die 
As we climbed even higher into the Devil's eye 
And as the Angel's body creaked and cracked
We finally scaled the crest and rode upon the Devil's back
Just before I fainted and my world went black 
I woke up in the morning high on a mountain side 
Never knowing just how I had survived 
knowing only that my Angel and my crew had died 
Many years have come and gone since then 
And I am forever haunted by each and every one of them 
My faithful crew and my mighty 'Angel of the Blue' 
I see their faces in my dreams 
As I awaken to their screams 
Wishing, too -  that I had died 
But someone had to live 
To tell the tale of the 'Devil's Tide'.

The Hollywood hills still echoes with his 
Rebellious yell, we are the forever young
An iconic American symbol, to this the lost
Age of innocence.
Nay did this rebel die without a cause,
I think not, in my humble opinion, he
Died for his desire for speeds acceleration,
In death's ironic twist of fate, James Dean's
Name became immortalized as an epic tragedy,
Of youthful hearts seeking to be wild and free,
Without any consequences.
A teen idol who went out in a blaze of glory, 
Revving His engine hell bound for destiny's,
Rock-n-roll Hall of Fame.
A nation wept in despair mourning for the
Loss of one so young and full of life.
Sorrows children cried in disbelief laying roses,
At his final resting place.
The jukeboxes remained silent with respects,
Reverence, and bikers gave him a rebel send off.
A generation whom believed they were bullet proof,
Realized how human life could be extinguished, 
Within the flash point of on coming head lights.
James Dean's ashes were swept away swallowed,
Whole by time itself.
Now he's nothing but a tarnished star in histories,
Memorabilia case on display for all to see,
And remember, this the first easy rider. 
JFK dream vision illusion of Camelot has faded to gray,
And Elvis now sings in a more heavenly chorus,
In the great beyond.
But before these man took the center stage, another
Walked the thin line of immortality's rebel fighting,
For a cause.
One lone figure rides into the night across freedoms,
Highway, and his name was James Dean.

we are stars

people are like stars,
some are younger,
some are older,
some are brighter,
some are darker,
some are bigger,
some are smaller,
but in the end we are all the same.
all together.
shining bright with our personality.
dont care about what other people think.
its their own opinion.
be unique,be you.
you are who you are, and who you are is all their gonna get.
so shine like a star!!!

The King Of Pop

from his abc's
to that freaky billy jean

came a pop star 
for all to love and see

from the apollo's stage
wondered if you were ready for screaming rage

for you never had a childhood of bliss
only done what was on joseph's list

a studded white glove 
and white socks just because

a star on the hollywood walk of fame
for you sang and danced showing no shame

scandals of twisted truth
did not detour you from your missing youth

neverland was your own safari escape
who would figure your best friend would be a chimp of faith

michael may god cradle you in his arms
and basked in your king of pops worldly charm

will forever miss that porcelain smile
and always think of you on my radio dial

for now your at your heavens trial
may god forgive this lost and lonely child

In Loving Memory Of
Michael Joseph Jackson

Star Mark

To breathe, exhale into the dead of night
a thousand breaths like dandelion stars
We crisp the air in shadows of hindsight

The blackened gulf is blinded by the shards
of strobing thoughts and whispered melodies
in crystal cutting glass on blackened tar

We strip the sky to cellophane memories
a candle wick of dew and star regrets
with sticky tongues of darkened parodies

While knowing that a star long burned begets
and turns to ash and fallen bitter glow
our still exhaling tangible detects

To breathe, and yet to infinitely know
our wishes blow to space and far beyond
to light our future travels as we go...

Somewhere Out There

Somewhere out there on a distant star is a 

place where we belong all to ourselves where 

there's no words nor a familiar face. On 

this star is where we eternally exist 

without critiscism or anyone's sultry words. 

On this star you'll never cry, except from 

tears of joy. Somewhere out there our love 

has no bounds, out there were never alone, 

always in each other's arms. Though no 

matter how bright this star maybe it still 

doesn't compare to you or me. Some where out 

there on that star we'll find each other and 

finally be at peace. Until then somewhere 

out there we shall meet.

About Me Pt. 2

I’m a man of my word,
I always do my best to keep every promise,
and I never make a promise I know I can’t keep
I’ll give you the shirt off my back if you really do need it,
but I’m no humanitarian
I always offer others my help,
but I rarely accept the assistance of others,
because it makes me feel like I’m weak
I am weak,
yet, I’m stronger than I seem
I am a rock star on the inside,
but, physically and mentally, I’m a rock star who has no musical abilities
At times I have self-esteem,
but, I really never do
I’ll say I believe in myself and that I’m happy with what I can do,
but, truth be told,
there’s always that nagging doubt,
the lingering thought,
the dreaded fear of proving myself right,
and confirming the utter worthlessness that I usually find in myself
I overanalyze everything
I’m always thinking about something
I love to watch people
but I hate it when people stare
I am a Christian,
but at times I wonder if God even cares?
then call myself a fool for ever thinking that way,
as I finally see all of the things I take for granted that He’s blessed me with 
I always wait too late to say what I’m feeling,
or can never seem to find the courage to say it when I want to
With time, I’ve grown too scared to reach for the stars,
to walk out on limbs,
put myself on the line
but, I don’t want to be left behind,
I don’t want to watch those around me grow and become happier,
while I am stuck in misery
I don’t know who I am

The planet we call home will never die,
 it will continue in orbit at one with the sky.
Imagine how small the Earth has got to be,
 when you see it surrounded by the Galaxy.
A star is born for everyone who lives,
 as a guardian angel our strength it gives.
When the time comes and our work is done here,
 our star creates a tunnel in which we disappear.
Meanwhile we face destiny unaware of our fate,
 as we live our own life that of which we create.
Being with loved ones. Family and friends by our side,
 taking and giving our hand to a lost soul as their guide.
At times I get confused feeling so weak and alone,
 I hold my head high using my strength to the bone.
Though I stay sane so much still goes wrong,
 my choices are maps to the direction I belong.
I've gained enough wisdom along my way,
 to know there's something to be learned each and everyday.
No matter how much energy is used for strength,
 as long as it's positive it can go to any length.
All that exists, all we are, and all we see,
 shares one thing in common, energy.
I look up to the sky surrounding me,
 and imagine I am one with the Galaxy.
It gives me a feeling of ever lasting energy,
 introducing to me wonders of.........Infinity!

Mind and Sound

Only light can penetrate the 
that resides in the default state 
of mind
I descend from beta to delta 
binaural beats; instantly caught 
between frequencies beyond 

I absorb amplitudes of acoustic 
and I learn to just be earth 
Since I am the earth 
and because I am of
the one that is the source of its 
I've owned the power of 

I realize now that I AM because
HE is since I am from that, a 
Created in the image of a 
and a feeling from the 
Universal Mind
I tune in to this vibration from 
pulse that manipulates 
subconscious minds

Immersed  between 4 and 7 
brainwaves halt to a conscious 
All  chakras are aligned shining 
crown energy 
and now my consciousness 
begins to reap! 
and light begins to penetrate 
the harmonious beams
that were already there
constant and always there 

is now flooded with sound 
that force brainwaves to submit 
to power
of omnipresent sound that 
always was 
and always will be connected to 
the Source from which I came
so I extend exponentially 
physical time and space

I long to embrace the intensity 
of gamma rays
I give way to the coded sounds 
that resonate from the inner 
and continue to connect 
through the binaural beats that 
remind me of before

Always familiar but ignored
until found by gaining 
knowledge of self
I listen with the intent to excel 
while reaping an abundance of 
benefits and rewards
It's already yours

Just reach out and grab it 
as long as intention and ego is 
the universe will correspond 
it will deliver a life to you divine 
and orderly
Just listen to the sounds that 
were there from before
They will guide to to the 
vibration from the core
and it will guide you to connect 
directly with the source

Lifes Rotations

Universes of time, aged stars;
Silent and bright, how they swirl.
Each one lights its own corner of the heavens;
each stands as one body;
serving the universe, alone.
They all reach great heights.

There are no fears here of heights;
no phobias among these stars;
despite them having to stand alone.
Round and round they swirl;
each centrifugal body,
swirling in the heavens.

When people look at the heavens;
they look to great heights;
and peruse those wondrous bodies.
They stare and dream, beneath the stars;
watching them blink and swirl;
each doing their job together, yet alone.

The state of being alone, 
up there, in the heavens;
in a constant state of, swirling;
can steer them to those, limitless heights.
Like people, they are travelers, those stars;
little gypsy’s in cosmic light bodies.

With no limbs to impede their bodies;
they travel to other universes, alone.
Each life has its own journey, even a star; 
as it travels through the heavens; 
it achieves, greater and greater heights;
never looking back, as it swirls.

Like stars, the human mind, with dreams…swirls;
within the mortal body;
Until it too, achieves great heights;
and doing this, very much alone.

Man dreams of rising to heaven; 
just like the gypsy stars.

In the end, like dwarfed stars; the human mind will cease its swirl.
In the heights of heaven, there is no mortal body.
No soul is alone, yet without any spin, it achieves those new heights.

The moon

The summer passed so fast
I thought you and I would never last
You told me our memories won’t be just a blast
Ever was I the one to doubt our past.

Clouds were soon hiding the sun
The difficult hadn’t even yet begun
I saw your shadow everywhere I went
I guess that’s just how much you meant.

But even in the darkest hour
The moon was there-a source of power
And each look made you feel so near
A dream to chase the presence of my fear…

Sea And Space

I see outer space
As the place
To retrace the roots
Of the human race.

I see under the sea
Is where our bodily
Cells first came to be.

Man's heart is in the stars,
Holding onto the dream to reach Mars.
Man's history,
Written in the stars as destiny.

I am but a child,
Born onto this planet turned wild.
I am but a soul
Sent here to alleviate the toll.

I see a sea of stars,
A healing ocean for our scars.
I see an empty crater
As void as our love for our Creator.

Man's fate has
Always been to create.
Man's destiny is to face
The sailing of the vastness of sea and space.

A New Day

I might sparkle in the night but I'm not the only star you might not see them in the sky it depends on where you are Am I the only light in your eyes that makes you smile when you cry if your favorite's what you say don't you blink it might fade away Only when we give everything we're truly ready for better things we invite ourselves off to drift the steam rises and our spirits lift Follow me, into sun sets be brave and strong with no regrets and when the sea takes the light we'll find a new day after the night there's still a new day after the night

Thanks From The Unworthy

From a cloudless frost crisp sky one star shines supremely out
Diminishing all other stars in the slate black sky about
It light s a path across a flat calm bay a road my soul must walk
To distant friends in distant lands to whom I wish to talk

To those in need I send you gifts of sustenance faith and love
To those in terror and in pain, I give hope and a dove  
Those whose loss turns fair heart black you get leave to grieve
You who now face life alone pure friendship you receive

As my mind walks that star lit path my thoughts they are with you
Who on my unworthy life your great gifts of love did strew
Pain from my old frame you shared and my loneliness did cease 
On you I wish health and happiness, love, luck and peace

What then is Life and Why

Before the Big Bang brought star dust 
To the interstellar scene
It must have been something like 
An unfathomably immeasurable self-inducing 
Divinely driven dream machine.
Mind forming matter as imagination 
Up the ladder 
Rungs of time;
Step by step and star by star
Unfolding Love sublime. 
Reaching out, emanating
From the center of All meaning;
Building blocks of trees and rocks 
More beautiful than being.   Born again 
Out of ashes
When fire filled the air
And all we knew was something drew
Us to life somewhere. 
Out of clay or the primordial egg
So the ancient stories subscribe
Old Adam and Eve and the snake in the tree
And history's first truth or dare or lie.  
What then, is life and why?
Could it be the unquenchable thirst for knowledge 
Hidden or forgotten throughout time?
Our inner connections to the Cosmic 
Creation, that set in motion every ocean 
And notion left to find?
Life is a living, dying, loving, lying
Uplifting, lowdown axe to grind.
With every minute of every breath
We suck in deep to breath
All the space, ideas and feelings,
Hopes, wants, cares and needs.  
And the long armed quest for nobleness
And the chance to reach deep realms, 
As Jason and the Argonauts were seeking 
Secrets in themselves. 
Down in the waves and dark filled caves
Where memories are never devoured;
Life is a terribly wonder-filled trip
Filled with heroes, 
                And the beautiful 
                            Wild flowers.

sport now a days

(orignal date: 2/15/11)
This is my momemet of clarity, 
pulp fiction no ly,

it is the education rules or rules on sport so where is my chair of sure lucky 
nest at flat feet at my success of my school degree of sucess, 

they say the groupiees are at the door before you reach the age of 18, 
so in vision my dream,

 in the teacher eyes he's first to be sit it, 

over and over regulation, 
 but who is you valdation the best left hand pitcher or kid with the highest iq, 
words to truth life by, 
life by the america education system is going truely die fast like the lip 
syncing of nsync, 
or what  band was that, (ban)     

ratical achievment, hand held glory, bold state meets, 
word to digestion in fact  i would take back it in fact i hope it inhance me in 
fact i sit down giving the facts

why is that average player that is deserving of scholarship isnt even look at 
twice but in fact the guy that make all the shot lingerie
 to the fact can't even learn the bases, 
bases which include square to the root the bases being give outstand 
interview and the bases is getting truth scholar the excess to a worth school 

Lost life in gamble, 
 and dropp out college by second semseter 
i say to the world it lot more kids that gift not talent that didnt pursue that 

What is our duty to stand by, 
 who is the role model, 
the father or the athlete or insteady of a
 father not a dad who eyes swallows to see the act of patrism reinstill and left

Sweet Forrest Gump

Forrest in his simplicity,
loved to munch;
not just any delicasy,
but loved chocolate.

No matter how many,
U.S. presidents he got to meet;
he always came back,
to eat his chocolate treat.

So why was he still thin,
no need to go on a fast;
indeed Forrest Gump is a star,
from start till the very last.

My Quiet Place: Star-gazing

It surprised me to hear that some ‘stars’ in the sky are planets
It made me wonder if others are watching our planet 
Our planet must be like a star to some
Scientists say this planet and that planet can’t possibly have life
Who knows for sure if they are right or wrong?
Someone is star gazing – he sees one star and knows it’s a planet
The planet interests him/captures his imagination
He wonders if there may be life there and what the beings could be like
They say on his world that the planet – it’s Earth – can’t have life
He shrugs and looks at Mars and wonders if there’s life there, instead

I rose and looked towards the sky -
Not long till light of day;
The planet seemed to be a star,
So many miles away.

I guessed about the life forms there -
Or was the planet dead?
They say there can’t be life on Earth!
I looked at Mars instead…

Within the Stars

Our feelings were high On this cold, dark, star-filled night I ogle your eyes You form beauty within them They twinkle like the white stars The moon shows its face As we walk down the black hill Letting our hands touch Our feelings surely brought joy As the sky winks at our love The stars have their love Ones that shined that gorgeous night Romance brought by stars And the moon has its power Love enters both of our minds

Foggy vs Clear

Looks certainly have deceived me!
Without trying, you are who you are
Without doubt
A faint star only because of your place
In our place
Lands you so very far
Only because of distance
You are a star shining so brightly
Maybe even brighter than the rest
Our eyes tell us 
You are so small
I may perceive a human to be the length of my fingernail
As I stand upon some rooftop
If I were to stand side by side with this human
Realize truth! 
My eyes have deceived me
I get a closer look -
or might I say
I place each object side by side
and witness truth
This is still open for interpretation 
Until I can place every single thing
In the same exact space
Observe every detail
Who am I to even ASSUME 
The truth?
This object has its own interpretation
As we do as well
Until things appear the same
From afar 
Under our noses 
There will be no total understanding 
Of the truth
I see you star
You are who you are
Without doubt
I learn from you
You have the appeal so very appealing to me
I learn from you 
As I have learned my eyes have deceived me
You inspire me 
Not to mold into what I perceive others perceive me as
To only be me 
This foolish chase is an endless race
I end this by first accepting me

In Your Beautiful Eyes


Amid a star ferried night loves tears came falling ~ 

Into Your beautiful eyes, their dreams were calling

Through the whispering tides a heart left drifting

While I stood by Your side; the pain was melting....

And the moon cast her glow as a choir bringing, joy

To sweep this night with heavens Angels singing 

As I stood by Your side; these tears left falling 

Unto tides that wash away the pain; still drifting 

Afore loves moon cast a light; dreams went calling ~

Upon a star ferried night; and hearts were melting....

"Hope" - A Star For Me

When parents don't have a choice and die
And all alone survive the loss
As I lie down to sleep at night 
They send in dreams... A Star For Me...

When Motherhood gets disappointing
And all alone survive the loss
I borrow scissors from my heart
With trembling hands I cut... A Star For Me

When trains don't stop and soul mate's gone
And all alone survive the loss
I row my boat on lakes with moons,
I jump and catch reflections of... A Star For Me

When I am old, and years fly by
And all alone survive the loss
I won't be sad, would even smile
As I lie down, a final sight...

Oh sweetest stars, sing remedies

show me all those paths unknown
Until the morning star shall rise

Oh sweetes stars, sing remedies

show me where our hearts will be
until the morning star shall rise

oh sweetest stars, sing remedies
turn this reality into a fantasy
where I am careless and so free

The Canvas of Night

The Canvas of Night

Stars like sprinkled sugar,
lay strewn across the canvas of night,

enthralled by the wonder of the cosmos,
my dreams take to the heavens in effervescent flight,

I bathe in the beauty, soaked in sublime delight,
absorbed in moments of bliss, transfixed by the serene sight.

Stars like sprinkled sugar,
lay strewn across the canvas of night,

and my being is infused with feelings of hope,

for even in darkness  I find the sprinkled sugar of hope's light.

note: special thanks to one of my heroes, the late Dr. Carl Sagan, for making science accessible to younger me, many, many moons ago.

Revealing to Me

Laying down on my back I look straight up Sky’s filled with small dots and the moon’s a cup Specks are bright with a very brilliant white They are awesome to see, a gorgeous sight The stars bring an aura to me with life No problems in the world I see, no strife I relax when the dots are before me Superior is their glow, completely As I lay on the ground I do notice This sky harbors peace within its darkness For the moon and the stars sure envelope The unmoving specks of light develop The stars move me in my heart seeing true Revealing to me how much I love you

One Soul Can Change

The thought of death can bring me fear,
The thought of her will bring a tear.
Real as the person sitting next to you,
Growing old but starting young and new,
The world revolves around a thought,
Of money and fame; until your body starts to rot.
Then the world becomes a blur to one,
Seeing the light; seeing which of your ways were right.
Left-right-side to side,
We take on this journey; this ride.
To find answers and truth in the lines,
Looking back at the life liven; and where your heart shines.
So as you read this you have a chance,
To look at your own story; just take the glance,
Because one soul can change its ways,
One mind can make new plays.
Pulling each memory back like a book,
Small eyes squinting to take a close look,
Who are you when no ones there,
Who are you when others stare?
Questions to be asked when death is talked about,
Voices in your head began to shout,
What is life, what is my reason,
Each year passes by; each month; each season,
My body grows older but my heart stays clear
Understanding to over come death as a fear.
As this poem is about to end,
Hold out your hand for a friend,
Pull close and know that life is precious;real talk,
Pull close and know that you walk  your own walk,
The outsiders and can talk about past and the ups and downs,
But their kind of like the funny people on the side; the clowns.
So head up ; feet low,
Arms strong; to get through the tough; now row,
Don't give up just be yourself,
Like putting the old toy upon the shelf,
Become the star that's bright and known,
Become the star that you know can be shown.

Vain of metal ore that smiled

This poem is written in the night in 
my little room when watching The 
stars, Lodestar is a bigger, it shines 
very well and in those. Days when 
voyage in the see was not of to day 
every body looked of for lodestar 
that gives direction to sailors. It is a 
poem about our cause of journey in 
life some of the time when we 
succeed we give our thanks to our 
guidance angel or lucky star it is this 
star, angel an greeting begging to 
guide our life affair in this world. 
Life problem are so many that we 
some time need this angel and lucky 
star. So it is easier when traveling 
with a guide, this makes it (life) not 
so difficult.

1.	They is a force that direct our 
affairs in this world existence.
2.	We should always pray for our 
affairs to before in good hands to 
enables us achieve our aim.
3.	This world is difficult to go 
through, it like our sailing in the sea 
of life.
4.	The sea of life needs a eye that 
will guide us in this affairs.
5.	We should always thank, greet 
our lucky star or angel.

A Concert For Death In My Symphonic Life

At night I like to look to the sky and remember the lost ones by whom I'm inspired The angels Rena, Toni, Jeromiah, and David all showed me something, how can I repay them? My heros whos lives, troubled like mine yet never once did they ever fail to shine even as they thought they mattered not I noticed the love for the life through they fought every time they woke from the bed until one by one, my heros, fell dead When I remember, even though, ago long, I look to the heavens, and sing them a song. I feel them smile, and clap for another I give it all my love, like I do Teddy and Randy, my brothers who pulled me out of the hole in my head and gave me the strength to carry the dead into my concert, a symphonic life for its what they give me, when we get lost in the night.

The Bright Star


O bright star of hope! I admire your beauty and glow
You stand out in the jamboree of twinkling stars of desires
As I see from my dwelling’s window your luminous face so bright
O light in the moonless night of my life how I love your sight!

You belong to kingdom of skies and I the domain of earth
Yet it is you that rules over the empire of my craving soul
Do not hide behind the curtain of my dark clouds of despair
As my eyes will open the floodgates of a catastrophic storm
The eyes that enliven with your beauty and your charm

My ship of life will be wrecked without the aid of your direction
You are the blossom of the withering garden of my dreams
Come to me my darling and fill the emptiness of my life
Without you my life is nothing but agony and strife

I recall my youthful days how playful girl I was!
In the game of hide and seek you peeped from the hole in cloud
I sang a passionate rhythmic song responding to your implore.
And rendered the profound poetry of Rabindra Nath Tagore

You are the one that bestows light to my imagination
I admire you most O Bright Star in the God’s entire creation
Though sometimes the hope you give is nothing but a mirage
But from the stark darkness of anguish better a flicker of hope

Let us Not Lose Sight of the Moon, While Counting Stars

Let us Not Lose Sight of the Moon, While Counting Stars
Sometimes we are so busy in our life with some unimportant things that we forget to give enough attention to our core and to the most important person for us.
The moon will never disappear while we counting the number of stars, and it will still remain more important than the star for our existence.
So moon represent those we dearly love and beloved, because we can always count on them when we need any support.
Deep in their heart, they will always be there for us in our daily life or whenever we have problem.
Therefore it is very important for them to be always involve in our life as a bridge between the stars and moon.
Received attention from others or give it back to them is a privileged in a relationship and it can give good feeling, so do not let the most important people in our life to suffer.
It may give a wrong impression which can cause jealousy or attention came out from deficiency and that brings us into trouble.
Because there may be disagreements come from the wrong flow and causing an unpleasant situation with mixed feeling.
That would turn our entire standard of living to be unbalanced which can give a different meaning for our life and we do not feel at ease.
If we really can think good about it and read into other’s people mind then we should have absolutely taken into account with it.
Because we ourselves were probably also not accepted it so we have to try avoid bad things from being happened.
But things done is done,  just let go but take it as a good lesson for next time.
As the proverb say “Don’t lose the moon while counting the stars”.
I wish you a healthy life.
Kindly Regards,
Author Jan Jansen

Forver Growing

You followed my footprints and came with a hand full of stars.
You planted them like little seeds in my garden and waited patiently for beauty to grow.
I started to bloom and now I stand tall.
Your eternal sunshine-showers keeps me growing.
I'm happy and content knowing 
that your world welcomes me and every part of me.
You are my univers and I've learned that no star is out of reach....
I will continue growing till I can pluck each and every star and give them back to you.
My love...My everything.
I will stand proud with you and my roots will run deep.
My branches will reach out to every part of you and the fruits I carry will be of the sweetest 
taste only for you
- by you.

So my dearest you... please stay wonderful and continue to grow next to me.
The world is not big enough for us... lets reach above and beyond.

Forever growing...

My Valentine

My valentine's a star above
that leaves me all alone.
It seems to know I'm happier
when left upon my own.

At night it sparkles brightly
and holds me to my stare.
My eyes left feeling helpless
as my lungs are filled with air.

My valentine's a star above
as faithfull as I've known.
But not for being a wonderer;
for aligning God's own throne.

The Moth and the Star

Once upon a time, in a place, not too far off,
In the dark, by the moon, there lived a family of moths.
Now, for those who don't know, a moth is like a butterfly,
but instead of vibrant colors, their wings are pale white.
Moths are known to come out and dance around fires at night,
and though it can be dangerous, they love its brilliant light!
When the sun would end its job and it was time to leave,
a family of moths would begin their late routine.
Their tradition was to dance around a yellow glowing flame,
of a streetlight, freshly lit, every eve, the family came.
-But there was one young moth who never did take part,
instead of dancing by the burning host, he preferred a star.
It seemed merely a twinkle, upon a branch of a great tree,
he felt, someday, if he could gain the strength, that star he'd reach.
Now his mother and his father scoffed and both would ask him why,
does he not join his brothers and his sisters by their side.
"Your brothers all are greatly singed, when will you take your turn?
Your sister's wings have turned to black, yet, you don't have one burn!"
Despite their scolds, despite their taunts, the little moth still aimed,
for that shining star he never knew was trillions of miles away.
He'd flap his wings, though he'd fly high, he could not ascend,
and every night, he'd fall just short and wait to try again.
But then, one day, he turned around and saw he was alone.
His entire family was gone, burned like butter on the stove.
And now that he was an old, old, moth he finally came to see,
that he, indeed, had reached his star, and it wasn't above the tree.

the gravity that pulled all of this together

                                           the star dust in your soul

                                                    within the brain

                                                     just to observe
                                                    your effulgence
                             the nimbus that crowns your lovely head

Shine Bright Tonight

another night I run to you
only for a kiss
and within a whisk, 
you're off 
into the land you want to be in 
I have come home 
to see you leave 
and then I'm left 
here daydreaming
when you say you'll come back 
but you never do
until my eyes 
have already turned blue 
until I can no longer want to think 
you'll be back in time 
for you to see
the light on my face 
when you make me smile
someone has been gone 
for quite a while 
and you tell me to wait 
and wait I do 
until I can no longer want 
to wait for you
oh, if I could stay out 
I'd dream all day 
of things I want to do
but work keeps me this way
and you can dream all you want 
because I've given that to you
but now I want my turn
yet I'm still turning blue 
I keep hearing you say 
great things are coming now
but all I see 
is my bank empty
and me, working 
struggling to buy shoes 
when you 
shine with all your gold 
you buy for yourself 
as I resist from buying pants 
I might want but don't need 
you shine some more 
and I become lonely. 
Oh shine bright tonight, 
wherever you are 
I've begun to not care 
how you'll be a star
because I need to let myself go too
and all I see are diamonds 
shining bright on you. 
maybe if I could do what you do 
I'd shine like a star 
I'd shine just like you.

The Art of the Universe

Looming way up high in the sky, holds a friendly, but shy star; which posses the caring, and strong-willed 
determination, which controls the poor star at every waking moment.
The determination to fit in and be recognized is seen through the hesitated young star.
Soaring into a thunderstorm, ice sickles form over the horizon, a chilly whisper thrusts itself to the crowd, the ocean draws near and completes a crisp but smooth wave that is clean, sharp and to perfect to paint a mental picture.
The moon gleams fear with vicious multi-colored red and black eyes, plus flakes of gold that captures the stare of the whole universe accompanied, with an all mighty struck of lightning at its feet. 
The star gasps, his conscious sliding and forcing its way inside, all his dreams fading,
he cant escape it, wind howling, a pitch black tornado forms tightly enclosing him.
Nothing can throw him a helping hand, he feels the tornado he names Demon, at the last second crushing and crumbling his hopes and dreams, his bright and intense color of yellow is faint and becoming unsteady.
Finally, feeling no hope, his slick and gifted mind takes a toll, falling from above, gaining speed in despair, he takes a deep, woozy, glance at his life, revealing to himself of no achievements, even temporarily closing its eyes, he cascades his last thoughts and conveys admiration of his chaotic life.
He orates (Until we meet again) moments from, feeling the powerful and bone-chilling
water, caving on his body. Setting adrift underwater, unknown to him, bubbles appear,
developing it seems the bubbles grasp the lone star, and propels him upward, not one second of air fills its lungs, when his eyes are driven open. He glances around to barley notice the bubbles have vanished, and it is not them but only himself, lifting his weight. He fails to realize he has actually taken form of a shooting star, evolving, advancing into a confident, elder star. The moon busts into tears, lighting sparks fire, that  veraciously swings brightness into all the land. Thunder rings in the distance, has the star has found his calling, finally claiming his name, as a elder in progress. The now self-proclaimed Shooting star, can glide in a glorious resurrection, as he now considers he life is not over, nor in vain, but being built, and he can now start with this on his record, surviving his guilt, and transforming into something beautiful, something worth living for and being known for: A Star of Art, a Shooting Star.

Always Shine

Tame thy shattered heart, with thou tragic tears;
of lost love tyrannies, of many truth less years.
I give you back my heart, fort it’s near a bust;
a ruptured, leaking vessel, pumps hatred and lust.

As the stars shine brightly, they softly speak your name;
the tongue slips gently, and casts it’s shameless blame.
Near a deadly defeat, of a broken spiritual bliss –
Casts one vibrant, beautiful star, which we’ll forever miss.

I’ll relinquish this guilt of who must now be found;
this diminishing self-serving star, whose now never around.
As the night turns into darkness, I’ll search for that star –
just to capture a glimpse, of this brilliant stellar very far.

And when I’m sad and lonely and are in need of my friend;
I’ll always remember that fading star and this broken heart I tend.
I’ll close my teary, weary eyes, and cast a wish far above –
Shine, shine little star – so brightly filled with love.

Star Crossed

Night sky softly cradles a lustrous moon 
Stars shimmer destined serendipity 
Lay out our fate as cast in ancient rune
Gateway opens celestial city

Stars shimmer destined serendipity 
Receiving the great gifts of desire
Gateway opens celestial city
On the waves that the cosmos inspire

Receiving the great gifts of desire
Moonlight nudges the night to awaken
On the waves that the cosmos inspire
Know our fate the stars have not forsaken

Moonlight nudges the night to awaken
Remembering our dreams from deep knowing
Know our fate the stars have not forsaken
Night gleams cosmic patterns ever flowing

Remembering our dreams from deep knowing
Bright moon draws down the waves of tides turning
Night gleams cosmic patterns ever flowing
Pulsing to our true heart’s deepest yearning

Bright moon draws down the waves of tides turning
As above, so below life transpires
Pulsing to our true heart’s deepest yearning
Evoking all star fated desires 

As above, so below life transpires
Lay out our fate as cast in ancient rune
Evoking all star fated desires
Night softly cradles a lustrous moon

The Snowy Life of Two Loving Ghosts

Taking suggestions especially on this poem. This is a first draft and I like it, but I don't have time to edit at the moment. Thank you!

The two ghosts dance through the barren forrest,
leaving footsteps to be pondered about
by the man who owns the land in the morning.
Howls and Screams and Laughter and Love
fill the dewy dark sky.
The two, lovers in death,
never knowing of the truth,
that their lives were taken
Snowfalls before,
being murdered in these woods,
their throat slits and their bodies mutilated,
No one knew who they were.

But here they are again,
running through the spindly trees,
taking in the scenes of their
eternal winter.
He takes her hand,
leading her to an opening in the trees,
a perfect circle, no light insight
but the stars above,
so beautiful,
so prominent.
Theres not a place in this town
better than this
to see the future amongst the stars.

They came here that day,
tent in one hand,
telescope in the other;
their thoughts in the air.
They were seventeen,
Seniors awaiting the approval
of a diploma,
They should be studying,
mid-terms next week.
They took a fatal break,
spent the night together,
only belonging to each other.

The ghosts;
who's sight doesn't recognize
the spot of their demise. 
They sit on top of a large smooth stone,
Left their by the world in it's hurry.
They gaze upon the stars,
waiting for the world to reveal itself.
The screams and wails and love still permeate the air.

They fell asleep in each others arms,
and so they never heard the footsteps,
the drunken laughs of men full of sin,
ready for some action.
They found the tent,
they killed the innocent souls,
but instead of leaving they bodies,
they left the ghosts,
taking the bodies and
depositing them in the freezing lake.
They then sat upon the rock,
laughing about the deed done,
passing out in the deadfall of snow.

The transparent lovers jump to the snow,
throwing themselves down to sleep the night away.
They cuddle,
protecting each other from the snow,
the danger,
the truth.
The smile,
and with one last scream,
they kiss,
merging with the snow,
Part of the world,
and this spot full of false truths.

No longer do lively bodies wander about the woods,
and the owner hardly visits.
But a few times each winter,
when the snow has fallen so deep,
You can hear the screams,
the howls, 
the laughter
and the love
of two ghosts
dancing in the snow.

the Triumph of the Pen

Oh winging Heart on a mission
to the edge of forever,
speed to the beloved with a message of Love.

We look in a different way,
with the Heart do we see,
and in that wondrous seeing,
is the feeling of awes majesty!

Yeah, that's the way to overcome
the 'thought police' inside the head;
doubt is the Heart killer
and so with this pen,
we’ll write our Hearts out again and again,
and if they judge the words we say,
to dash our Dreams in any way,
then we'll write even more to soothe the Soul
for the writing life is our Loving goal!

This triumph of Love carried to our pen
where in our written words Love lives again ...

A writer writes and never stops writing
and rewrites and writes again and again ...
and he never stops writing except to Dream,
perhaps to reach for that Star in that Star crowded Sky
and bring that Star to the end of his Pen
and write like plasma all over again ...

An Astronaut

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

Granted and Given

It is all in the Stars if you look hard enough.
There is always the morning Star twinkling.
And then there is the evening Star blinking.
And then there are layered clouds in a fluff.
Then there is the Sun and Moon and stuff.
Sometimes it looks like the Moons winking.
Sometimes it looks like the Sun is thinking.
Makes me wonder if their day can be rough!
What a wondrous world I live in.
What balance I live by every day.
My life must be granted and given.
So no wonder I take time to pray.
It is granted and given each day just to be me.
Just look up once a day and this you can see.

The Bog of Incredible Stench!

The bog of Incredible Stench
Not a place I knew of when young
Not a place I'd ever contemplate going to
Not a place I'd recommend – learning cure?
@Not a place I want to be@  

Why do so many do so many regrettable things
Evita – no regrets? 
They wish!
Borrow a life or two – hind – no regrets?
 I knew bizarre wear of the Emperor
New life – borrowed life
New life – better life?
New life – old strife

♣Invisible hands to help the Emperors into their robes♣
Invisible mantle stolen on view – star wear
All on show invisible bizarre wear
Star wear - star war

Poor star?
Poof gone?
Mantle gone!
Stardom gone?
Catch a falling star for the pocket
New life – borrowed life
Catch a falling star for the pocket
New life – better life

Catching a falling star for the pocket
New life – new lies
Catch a falling star for the pocket
New life – old life, old strife!

Will you go
To ware stench?
Will you go
Does it
is it
Nurtured thievery
Kept not given back
Thievery of many to greedy to know 
They're Emperors on Show

Music Box Dancer

The music box dancer is so young and sweet
 turning on a pedestal up on her feet
Admiring her beauty makes all of us feel
 special people in our lives could be this real

But only one could be seen through his eyes
 she’s the brightest star up in his sky
Now she’s gone and he seems so alone
 crying and remembering just how she’d grown

Though every father has his own dreams
 this little girl became more than she seems
To him, his life would be so incomplete
 without his ballerina with the dancing feet

So for her he wrote this beautiful song
 telling her together was where they both belonged
Again in his arms she gives him a kiss
 tells about the good and bad, all that he’s missed

She has her own life and now he’s gone
 but always on that pedestal he put her on
His star will always shine while dancing ‘til dawn
 his music and his dancer will go on and on

In the vast beauty and diversity
                 of the reaches of the cosmos
           impresses upon us all
the shear minute dust we are
                 in any comparison
The simplicity of laws
            that govern it's most basic
     and complex movements
Birth , Life , Death
                 some would distain this as "circular"
as the patterns in creation are
for all things existing within its confines
the birth , life , death of stars   , galaxies
entropy and the recirculation of those elements
into new structures encased
                 in the womb for new material
apply equally to the diversity of structures
                 cycling on the little blue marble
seed  sprout   bush    tree     seed 
seed  sprout   plant    flower     seed
seed   baby    child     adult       seed
same  down    onthe   cellular    level
same  down    tothe    atomic     level 
                 and its clock
in a state of perfectly circular self propagation
For those who foolishly accuse us of being
Let me explain              a simple something
     how we measure time in the cosmos
is based on a circular orbital movement of planets
                      and stars
and as for thinking
are questions seeking answers which just
                     lead to more questions
          and that's the beauty of it
       simplicity defines even the most
        complex systems that function
right down to the circuit boards for computers
        and technology
Mama      seals     it      with     Kiss
        Keep it simple stupid
anyone who doesn't know
a clock embedded in the universe
has not recognized his own

The Earth's Core

I left the Earth and walked to the Moon passing the Sun.
Along the way a Star I did meet full of treasures and fun.
The Star had a story to tell so I listened carefully so keen.
It told me of Earth’s history and mysteries setting a scene.
There was a King a Queen a Prince and a princess before.
Not born of Earth but of this Star that made plenty more.
The Star buried them in the Earth’s core where they grew.
It took years and years for this mixture to ferment a brew.
In the Earth’s core were diamonds as big as Mountains.
They sprung forth showers of fires like huge fountains.
Under the diamonds was a huge magnet pulling the Star.
They stayed together and worked as one to build a heart.
So they gave the heart to the Queen and the princess.
The King and the Prince were able to take a recess.
They went on and built the dome around the Earth.
But in the core lies a timely date for a new rebirth.
So they grew and woke up and jobs were assigned.
They had to gather the crops and all planets aligned.
They had to dispense kingdom upon kingdom by a breath.
They had to experience a multitude of life and one of death.
But they hid treasures upon the whole Earth and stored.
They sealed fate conquering life and death until bored.
So one day they decided to go away leaving  treasure.
They’d build galaxies and more Stars hard to measure.
They stayed together and lived happily ever after.
Each with a skill and a talent cheerfully in laughter!

Addicted-for Matt

You let this thing take a hold of you,  control of you
Dictating your actions like a puppet without strings
Taking you down the road of the weak
Unable to believe what yourself,speaks
Destroying your body from the inside out
Subconsciously making you scream, "Let me Out"!
Your a shining star on the verge of a disaster
Stop it before it gets what its after
Admitting the lies to the ones you love
The first step in becoming what you need to become
Seeking out the help you need to save your soul
is the bravest thing in this world,that i know
Your a shining star that needs to shine
Dont let it burn out
Stop it,Scream,
"Let me out!, Let me out!

To be a measure of a man
You gotta take a stand
Gotta take control
Gotta find the strength, on your own
Be that shining star

Gotta fight the fight
You gotta  right to your life
Keep fighting 
Fighting for your life............

Snowing Stars

It was the New Year s Eve, the cold December day
Snow covered the charcoal roads, the wind in trees lay.

She could see the lights in the cozy dining hall
Warm chaos and family reunion; a merry Time’s call.

The snow thickened and the wind rose, harsher and harsher still
When the mighty clock struck midnight, she leaned by the window sill.

It was years and years ago, that she had defeated fate.
To meet her one and only and to lose him to such wait.

Now ten years later as she looks at the little celebration
She wonders if she gave up her life to futile aggravation.

If only he were here, If only he returned her call
If only she knew why Lady Fortune had taken away her all.

But the years have passed and the Time has changed.
He is not hers to summon and she to him is estranged.

This New Year’s eve, she promises to herself
Like every preceding year, she will put the past on a shelf!

She has not succeeded so far and she knows she will not.
She looks out the window, content at her lot.

The family in the little cottage is having a joyous fête
She looks on with a solemn smile and marvels at her state.

Years have come and gone by and many more will do
Before she can meet, her matchèd star too.

As the star-shaped snow, falls softly on the ground
Her eyes tread the path, without a single sound.

They look like twinkling stars if you catch them on your hand
They render the earth heavenly and they charm you as they land.

‘Snowing stars, my snowing stars’, she calls them her own.
As every snowing star buries the memories she has known.

Under the snowing stars, she had cried all along,
Under the snowing stars, she will stay and hold strong.

Till then she will sit there, by the ragged window sill
And pray to the snowing stars, to bring Life its will.

**The title of the poem is not my own, I read the phrase online and wrote the poem because it triggered the thoughts. :)

The Final Star isn't Born

(The final star isn't born!)  
    There is a star shining in the skies above you.
    There's a hell that likes to sink inside you,
    and there’s a ambition that stands beside you,
    and a dream that likes to catch you.

    Within these dark eyes,
    is a drop of our belief.
    As you fly in these blue skies.
    you’ll soon be up there in relief.

    With the world in your hands.
    Take a chance and take a stand.
    Tell the world another great story
    and with your stories in hand.

    Take the controls, take command
    and you are the star with the best glory.
    There’s been a mirror held to my face.
    Your face is what I see in place.

    I want to see it again and again.
    You are the dream of the girls,
    come and take us just for a twirl.
    We just like to know how’s it been.

    Your are the star in the sky.
    We will come to help you fly.
    lets take on this dream together,
    no matter whats going on with the weather.

(The final star isn't born!)

To Say the Least

Take my heart and let it beat
Till it’s last try.
Take my smile and let it shine
Till it dies.

Till it’s last try,
The world will fight.
Till it dies,
The sun will bite.

The world will fight 
With all it has.
The sum will bite
Back the night.

With all it has 
This star has fought
Back the night
To win the war of life.

This star had fought
Till its death 
To win the war of life.
To say the least.

Till it’s death,
Take my smile and let it shine.
To say the least,
Take my heart and let it beat.

The Bright Star

O bright star of hope! I admire your beauty and glow
You stand out in the jamboree of twinkling stars of desires
As I see from my dwelling’s window your luminous face so bright
O light in the moonless night of my life how I love your sight!

You belong to kingdom of skies and I domain of earth
Yet it is you that rules over the empire of my craving soul
Do not hide behind the curtain of my dark clouds of despair
As my eyes will open the floodgates of a catastrophic storm
The eyes that enliven with your beauty and your charm

My ship of life will be wrecked without the aid of your direction
You are the blossom of the withering garden of my dreams
Come to me my darling and fill the emptiness of my life
Without you my life is nothing but agony and strife

I recall my youthful days how playful girl I was!
In the game of hide and seek you peeped from hole in cloud
I sang a passionate rhythmic song responding to your implore.
And rendered the profound poetry of Rabindra Nath Tagore

You are the one that bestows light to my imagination
I admire you most O Bright Star in the God’s entire creation
Though sometimes the hope you give is nothing but mirage
But from the stark darkness of anguish better a flicker of hope

Just because a star explodes, 
Doesn't mean its gone,
This catalyst of life unfolds,
And then has to move on... 
To spread itself to what may be, 
Until it has a chance, 
Becoming the complexity , 
That waits for circumstance... 
And when the right conditions rise, 
The only thing remains, 
Is subject to the compromise, 
Of life and death the same... 
Till everything we touch and see, 
That burned within the sun, 
Becomes the part of you and me, 
Connecting us as one... 
Just because a star explodes, 
So violent in the end, 
Only means what is bestowed, 
Creates more life again...

you're like a star brightening my life 
shooting across my darkened sky 
fixing my broken mind,you're so beautiful you bring tears to my eyes 
you've opened my heart, helped me see 
that there is so much more to life then i thought they could ever be 
you make me smile like I've never smiled before 
my whole world comes to life 
when i see your face when i hear your voice 
i just wanna hold you near 
i wanna hold you for the rest of my years 
i wanna wake up in the morning 
and the first thing i wanna see is you lieing next to me 
you are the star that has brightened my life 
you are the star that has lightened my sky

Staring at the stars in the sky
Amazed at their creation and existence
Seeing all the stars connect into shapes and patterns
Lying on the grass as the wind passes over me
Thinking of how far away they are
Imagining the surface and energy that each star emits
The power of the stars in the Bible
The North Star points in the right direction
The creation of stars and how they evolved over time
What changes they must have gone through
What transitions, temp changes, and shapes they have been?
The life span of a star and the change in brightness over the years
The distances they must have traveled throughout time
Far beyond the stars to galaxies and planets far away
To the moons of Saturn where life is, well maybe
Will they ever discover extraterrestrial life forms?
What new discoveries will NASA make?
Where will our astronaunts travel to in the next 50-100 years?
Will they ever creat a space station or hotel as proposed in the 1970's?
What is it like to be in zero gravity?
Thinking of what lies above me, but still on firm ground
I am just curious about
What the future holds, what the future holds

id like too

before I pass through the moon and stars, I would like too have a family in the woods, by a creek hearing birds chirping as they stay in the trees I'll tell my children that there talking bout you, when the night comes we will count all the stars see how full the sky is and pray for a shooting star when you go to bed I'll stir up some hot chocolate and surprise them in their room, how great it is to have these things when your fast asleep in peace.

Together at last dancing with the stars

Stay up with me and gaze at the stars.
Far up and up,together we  gaze. 
Sinking into the view of connection. 
Stay up with me and share this connection.
Would you stay up and up with me, 
sharing the view of an astronaut. 

Running from the suns heat.
Running on jupiter,enjoying its mysterious beauty .
Off to mars, where we consume intoxicating green glowing goo.
Stumbling drunk to Pluto,creating ice sculptures of each others faces. 
Freezing mental pictures in our warm frame of mind. 
Stay here on Pluto my dearest, take my love it will keep you warm.
Ill soon be back. Off to saturn to steal its orbiting ring. Running back to pluto with a hang over. 

Damn those martians on mars!!!
I stoped on jupiter to vomit and back to pluto I arrived.
She says:baby,honey,my shining star iam glad your back.I am sorry I took so long.I kneeled to the ice and gazed at her eyes saying would you married me.Pulling out saturns ring and making it condense with the power of love.As I placed it on her finger a shooting star passed by.Then I asked her  would you stay up and up with me for eternity, gazing at the stars?she saide yes.

Together at last dancing with the stars.

The Gunslinger

He was a gunslinger from the lone star state,
With a mind full of anger and a heart full of hate.
He wore two six shooters,one on each hip,
With the notches of the dead cut into the grip.
The eyes of this gunslinger showed no emotion or fear,
Every one kept there eyes on him when he was near.
Then along came a stranger,with a star upon his chest,
Looking for the man from the deep southwest.
He called the man out from the lone star state.
He knew that talking was useless,his words would carry no weight.
As they pulled there guns,the gunslinger gave it his best.
But the bullet that struck first was from the man with the star on his chest.
When the gunslinger hit the ground,the marshal asked him why,
The man from the lone star state showed emotion and shed a tear from his eye.
She was just a kid when the gang rode into town,
She was barely sixteen,why did they gun her down.
You finally put me to rest,the anger and hate will finally subside,
And as the gunslinger past away,the marshal finally knew why.

Eye for an Eye

Over-power the masses single-handedly
One against many, against any calamity
Exhaust a man's will
To bend at his own
So what if it kills (him)
--The man has no soul--
Grew stronger by the day
Fueled by love and hate
A ruler and a slave
Together in hell
In a shell as hollow as his name
Unravel deception
As it crept in
Hints and clues
At first obtuse
By looking through
A distorted view

Revenge negotiates no truce
When he comes to settle the score
Burning with a short fuse
A napalm death in store
Slay the day, chase the night away
A midnight star now cast astray
Darkness falls before the light of dawn
And in that time, your life will be gone

Regain a power within
As you drain the guilt of sin
--You know where you've been--
Can’t forget so won't forgive
Don’t know how to live and let live
An eye for an eye
And a tooth for a tooth
I still live by an ancient rule
In a modern day of techno tools
Withstanding the strands of time and change
Sent forth to exist on any plane

Revenge negotiates no truce
When he comes to settle the score
Burning with a short fuse
A napalm death in store
Slay the day, chase the night away
A midnight star now cast astray
Darkness falls before the light of dawn
And in that time, your life will be gone

Take from me, you will no more
For I am back to settle the score
More powerful than I was before
Stand with no chance
When I hit full-force
Show no mercy when balance is restored
Tip the scale you will no more
All will pay for their one mistake
No escape from my grip that day

Revenge negotiates no truce
When he comes to settle the score
Burning with a short fuse
A napalm death in store
Slay the day, chase the night away
A midnight star now cast astray
Darkness falls before the light of dawn
And in that time, your life will be gone

Love is an emotion that can’t be seen 
It’s not of a stoplight so you can’t wait till the light turns green
There is good and bad love and even some in between
Love has no limit and can never be wiped clean

Strongest feeling that lies in our soul
Ye must know with each drive you must pay a toll
No matter how far you drive ye can still wind up in a hole
Ye heart you stole
So finding love is not an ultimate goal

Losing your love in the cold breeze it will blow
Even though it’s still with you as you try to let it go
Ye must just let love flow
After ye feel the power it has ye shall never be below
Have thy faith so thou feelings will only grow

Something we take for granted and says to soon
That’s why most of the time our love ends up in the sky like a lost balloon
We can hope and pray for love but let’s face it life is not that of a cartoon
Ye can sit and wish on a star or star at the moon
Or ye can take action for thyself and make your own personal tune

Living life with the one who means the most 
Overcoming the obstacles we shall share and becoming one
Venturing out and exploring not thy heart by thy partner soul
Everyday respecting the other one and not just playing a role

That is the meaning of love which to most people is blind
Because small minded and selfish to them love has already been defined
Thinking the way you do will only leave you a step behind
So if ye not knoweth thy true meaning then leave it undefined
Because one day you will have a contract of love that must be signed

It’s not the same as an I like you
Because we all know half the people that say that aren’t true
It’s not the same as you mean the world to me
Because you still don’t have thy ultimate key
It’s not the same as I miss you
Cause thou can say that while you are sleeping with your other boo

So don’t take love light
If thy do ye wont be able to sleep at night
So until ye know what it truly means then stay on the ground and don’t take flight
Just wait for that light to shine on you ever so bright
When you’re standing across from the one you truly love in black or white

Trying To Push A Buffalo Home

She was no longer young
But not quite old
Still deep in her soul
She was a romantic
Believing in love at first sight
And of course
Soul mates
On starlit nights
She would go outside
Looking up at the sky
Repeating the poem
“Star light, star bright”
Making a wish
On the first star that appeared
In the end
When all the wishing was done
And dreams unfilled
She would walk into an empty home
With hopes of tomorrow
Sometimes she thought smiling
It was so difficult keeping the faith
Almost like
Trying to push a buffalo home

Shady's poem, a poem dedicated to my dog, not quite finished

The night sky is lit up by stars
One by one each flickers away
One by one each love is dead
Until the sky is black and gone

One bright star is all that remains
I reach for the light
but it pulls away
and flickers just the same

Let me fall; so it can rise
Let me dullen; so it can shine

I pray with all my heart
I cry with all my tears
I work until I sweat
Just to save that last star in my sky

You are sweet and special.

Thank you for being you because I got to see a star shine.

For this star shot in my life and will now make my life

Star Light

Star Light…
By: Clarence B. Bowser Jr. the III
As I stare into her eyes all I can see is star so bright,
There’s nothing but love and joy inside of my little star light!
She gives me a smile and takes hold of my hand,
So this must be the joyful feeling of being a man!
I embrace her in my arms and hold her close to my chest,
I tell her I love you, as I fill her tears falling down from chest!
For my star light I must be strong, but I can’t understand where her life went so wrong,
She barely came into this world she didn’t live long!
As the doctors come in and tell me to please let go,
There so many things I want to tell her that you’ll never know!
As I look at her mother not even a single tear has even left her face,
I say to myself I wish it was her to take my little star light place. Because there’s a
pain so deep that will never be erased.
Now and forever I will never let you go, till the end of time I will always let your love
show. When will we meet again that I do not know, but the love I have for you I will never
let go!
My life is a living hell and that’s a fact, because my little star light I will never get
back. I blame her mother because she was stung out on Crack, and she is the reason why my
star light is never coming back!
My Little Star Light May God Bless your Soul Baby
Daddy will always Love You

Dandelion Star

A star that was purchased recently
Was given the name Dandelion Star
As the cosmic wind blows every spring
Offsprings of Dandelion Star are born
Filling the second heaven with glow
Like the glow of your short life on earth
That filled the hearth and home of your family
God has given you a special place
For your Light to shine forever more
Oh! daughter precious child of God loved
For you I've purchased Dandelion Star
In the heavens as constant presence
And memory of  you my birth mother

Fire Mother

Cold morning greets the weary eye clouds drape the horizon in gray
I turn around avoiding the sight I cannot stand with a dreary pale day
And then I feel it on the nape of my neck A hint of warmth kissing my skin
I turn around gazing out my window and see in the gray light the size of a pin
I try not to build on my hopes the thin ray of light might be gone in a tick
And then it happened the clouds parted way amazing ling quick

within a moment I was a washed in light blinding brilliant and glaring so bright
it was like the day had defeated the night leaving the world with breathtaking sight
The orb of energy colored the sky in outrages shadows and countless hues
the godly object painting its art from star to star the cosmos its muse

I moved with a pace to open the door I flung it open with a giddy delight
the clouds burned away by the waking of ra the life giving force of comfort and might
the rays that touched the flesh of my face washed in warmth a faint tingle
Colors above began to dissipate lose there sharpness leave then un mingle

now the sky retains the majestic color of the all welcoming blue
now nothing can stop the suns life and energy from making it through
the moments I spent outside my front door revitalized my heart filled my soul
I dare not stare into the great star the center so bright a positive hole

I stood there soaking up the nectar my skin absorbing the vital beams
Before this day I thought the world could only be this beautiful in our dreams
Iam not sure to this day how long I enjoyed it how long did I stay
I took the time to indulge in the feeling the blinding array

The golden orb that gives life a chance nourishes its children down below
refreshes my outlook changes the day shinning down for the rest to grow
to bathe in its glory heat on my skin sensations burn from my feet to my chin
summer is coming in its time the way it has always done the way its been

Shading my eyes from the fiery glare I take a last glance at the burning sphere
so filled up inside with light and warmth my lets out a rejoice full tear
Once again it will set in the sky but it doesn’t take long for it to appear
to give the life that we all so crave and to make our days a little more clear
a god to revere a star we hold dear every summer once every year it comes again
to greet us here banish the dark conquer our fear once again I will gaze and ill peer on the 
celestial being 
that owns the sky the liquid fire mother our sphere

I viewed from afar 
the things I saw 
That lay in my heart 
Burning star 

The fire flickers 
Burning star 
Burning heart 

I was there, 
in the cold of space 
My heart 
Laid bare 

The fire flickers... 
The dying embers of my heart 
Burning star 

Such things, 
viewed from afar 
Such detachment, 
burning star 

The fire flickers 
Burning heart 
Burning star 

I reached out to a star 
Say what you mean 
The heart quickens 
The fire flickers, 
from afar

making It great in2008 by watching what wise men do (part 25)

we're all natural born watchers just looking around
at the TV, the Internet and newspapers all over town
be it something or somebody we usually just watch and wait
to look up to anything that may reinforce our faith
be it something constructive or counterproductive
to watch what others do and then try to imitate
to look at success and then try to emulate

the Wise Men, the Magi were 3 men you should look upon
for they knew to follow that star which was on the horizon
yet King Herod who was the ruler of that little town
could not spiritually ascertain what was really going down
he had heard that the nation of Israel would have a new born king
and then he became paranoid and anxious over everything
he was under the impression that God would have told him first
of the Saving Son who was about to appear on earth

God did a new thing in a completely new way
but many missed the true meaning of the birth that day
but the Magi those 3 Wise Men were in step with God
they were spiritually aware of what was about to start
it's not about man's logic, rationale nor reason
for God is the omnipotent One for all seasons
don't let anyone try to diminish the awesomeness of God's might 
don't let anyone try to dim the brilliance that is His guiding light
making it great in 2008 by watching what wise men do
making it great in 2008 by believing that God is watching over you

to be struck by the mystery that is God's power
to believe that He is with you at any given hour
to follow that star whenever you hear the angels sings
to trust that God will guide you in everything 
there's no need to fear the unknown or what's down the road
just watch what wise men do when they give God total control
by following a star which led them to a child born in a manger
and not to reveal what they found for to tell would have brought danger
and after presenting the gifts and thus fulfilling the prophecy
they left Bethlehem by another way and continued their journey

when God gives a revelation and then tells you to get up and leave
let no one stop nor hinder you from doing what you believe
don't ever put reason before revelation as reason will only go so far
for revelation is the exclamation that will reveal to you a star
so making it great in 2008 by watching what wise men do 
and by following that star wherever it leads you to

Swim With Me Tonight

Slip into the pool of season
Lose yourself in indecision
I'll shake your hand for this very reason
Purity sparks ignite...

For as much as you dissolve me
Abalone shine to guide me
Love the wind through your words tonight
Love the fall and gauge...

Swim like mad through the raging waters
Wishes liquid spiral daughter
I tread soft in the silky shallows
Moon shine - we're all star dust...

Choose my moment,  lose my spirit
Reasoning you'll tread to hear it
Every gulp of salty water
Amounts to my own birth
Tip of your tongue lights the night's blue eye
Each of your words a heaving star bite

Match me in stride and we'll swim 'till sunlight
Enter the current and ride...

Noisy When Touched

Sunrises with a different color this morning
Pale pink whispy clouds adorn all the upper sky
A very small crescent moon in the southeasterly sky
Where the morning star resides this time of year

The mist rising from the creek Seems to mingle
With the mist from the smaller
Creek one-quarter mile away
Beyond is the pink striated with gray on the low horizon

I heard the gobbling of turkeys 
Or is that hunters doing their calls
Do the turkeys know the difference
If they don't their number is up

As the great star comes on up
The light pierces the golden hickory
Radiating the glory from that tree
Into my line of vision just a few minutes

In the front yard the hugh oaks
Lay down a rug decorated with leaves
Varying colors of tan, brown, and red
It is a noisy rug that crunches when touched

I lie on my bed and look up
Watching the twinkling stars 
Looking  like a carpet of hope                                                                                                                                    Shining near and far

Each star can tell a story
Of a life of many years
Throwings its light across the skyline
Alighting on faces wet with tears

Maybe Tears of happiness
This might be the case
Or the  tears of a life
One can no longer face.

But the special star I’m looking for
Is the one that shoots across
The divide of life and longing
Sending stardrops  on my love

Morning Star

Across her village far deep in to the forrest Morning Star found peace and 
contentment. Here away from her village, the young girl enjoyed the daylight 
hours with the sounds and beauty of nature and it's animals. Beyond the forrest 
the mountains held a mystery all their own. Their beauty touched her soul and 
spirit yet they seems so far off to her.Her thoughts wondered what lay over them 
and what new world lay beyond those haunting peaks reaching to the sky.
    Suddenly the early morning was shattered by the sounds of gunfire. With all 
the men gone hunting no one was there to protect the village. Morning Star's 
thoughts were of not only the others in the village but of her mother and baby 
sister, she had to get back to them. Screams of women and children cut through 
the forrest as the scent  of smoke and the sounds of horses grew closer.  
Suddenly the sounds began to fade and only the smell of smoke remained. As 
she stood at the clearing, Morning Star saw what was left of her village. Unable to 
move as her eyes looked across the bodies of women and children laying all 
around. Tears filled her eyes as she walked by so many searching for her 
mother and baby sister, hoping that they had fled to safety. There in the dirt lay 
her mother clutching her baby sister, both dead. How could this have happened? 
How could the soldiers have done this to them?
  Morning Star placed a blanket over her their lifeless bodies and slowly walked 
away. Her life as she knew it was gone, dead along with her mother and baby 
sister. She was the only survivor.  Slowly she walked back into the forrest. Dusk 
was beginning and the forrest would keep her safe for the night. Tomorrow she 
would search for a way up to the mountains, there she would find a path to her 
destiny and what the spirits have chosen for her. She would be the only one to 
tell the story of all who had been lost this day. She would be the only one to keep 
their story alive for generations after this.

My Shining Star

You went away,
Way too far.
But you will always be,
My shining star.
My star that shines in the sky,
To tell me you’re still there.
You’re my star that always shines,
To tell me you still care.
My star that is always there,
That never loses its shine.
The only one in the sky,
That I always seem to find.
The one that never,
Ever goes away.
Always there,
Where it wills always stay.
It will be there shining down on me,
Whenever I need it.
And also when,
I feel like I need to quit.
And it will be there,
When everything’s not okay.
Because you’re my shining star,
That’s never going away.

I'm just a drunk
sitting at the bar
Watching everyone
cause to me they're all stars
In this game of drink
we all have our parts
And I think
we are all drink stars

So I'm out everynite
playing my role
Having a good time
getting out of control
Going for blackout
not to remember a thing
Because that's what it's all about
when your a star of drink

In every bar around town
there's another starring cast
Everyone buying rounds
and asking for autographs
Snapping pics
and making a scene
That's the way it is
when your a star of drink

Keep me sane so I don’t hit the street make you have to see me in that stretch
So I gotta take it out on the pen then, make it throw up the Inc. like one of Gotti’s henchmen
Knock, Knock I’m here again way before my time so I’m here to win
You like my thug style when you hear it then, not too hype but just might be real melo wit the cheerin then
But when you hear we win celebrate wit the steaks and the flavor that’s seared right in
Get it clear number 1 option, but you can choose to op then, coed go head and cop then.
Don’t drink coffee but I got star bucks, other chicks get star struck
But you the one and only that can get me charged up
 Get me by the mall to buy it all by tomorrow and charge it up
So pardon the interrupt it’s far from me to stunt
The bars in my mouth that’s crushed broke bill gates bank and made his head bust
Because the price’ll head bust, so go head and touch
The time you require wit the sire, get it in entire, royal treatment like you part of an empire
So I can talk about it till my mouth get tired
So be about it because C’s bout and come kick it wit the Sire

I open the door to pleasure, 
to see what I treasure. 
I walk slowly past, 
my hand trailing, 
looking at last, 
not failing 

This towering wall, 
is calling me, 
inviting me, 
planting the seed. 
Urging me to read 
and I answer that call 

These narrow cloisters, 
my hunting ground. 
Seeking that elusive book, 
for I search and look 
for what needs to be found 

No need to explore, 
final frontiers, 
open the book, 
take a look, 
you will see more 

For you travel far, 
in a book, 
further than any distant star, 
go on! take a look! 

Your  imagination travels to a distant land, 
tall mountains, 
rolling sea, 
warm breeze. 
all this,you hold in your hand 

For books are the soul 
in which our imaginations play a role 

Your eyes caress every page, 
the story untold, 
turn the leaf, 
let your imagination unfold 

These books hold, 
ice and cold 
also warmth and wit, 
enough for a laughing fit 

A book can hold such emotion, 
touch you deep, 
tighten your grip, 
bite your lip, 
make you weep. 
Such a cocktail! 
Such a potion! 

To change the world, 
for the book wields enormous power, 
my imagination,uncurled 

My speed of thought, 
takes me far, 
further than anything my teachers have taught, 
past any galaxy or distant star 

For the love of books, 
I search crannies and nooks, 
for I will travel,I wage, 
for when I open the first page. 
I do not need to try, 
for I am transported, 
no need to fly 

This book I hold, 
lets my imagination unfold. 
This beautiful thing, 
let its words ring 
and the joy it can bring 

In my book I can be  anything, 
from sea 
to bubbling brook, 
I lose my being, 
I take another look. 

So much to be, 
so much to see 

For what is written, 
you are smitten, 
to travel far, 
past galaxy and distant star

shooting stars

theres a star in the ski
asking you to wave goodbye
its time has come
it has to go
where it will land 
you will never know
you have one last chance to make a wish
one last chance to change your ways
one last chance to save a life
so as that star falls towards the ground
you wont hear it make a sound
all you will see is the beautiful sight
of that star waving good night.

The Cheater

Educated she is, in one of the finest school abroad
Through the blood and sweat of my innocent people
Now she is here to pursue her life’s real ambition
Aided by the shadow of her dearest loving father

Waving to the welcoming crowd, smiling like a star
Then with confidence she delivers her magic spell
Of peace, economic growth and of political stability
In a short span, our beloved motherland will be back 

To the top, where she once before, she proudly tells
Hopes and contentment are being etched in the faces
Of the many, who never seem to stop worrying for
What to eat and what to wear, so, one must lead 

The country to prosperity from chaotic leadership
That blackens the dignity of my brothers and sisters
Suffering deep humiliations from the foreign hands
In exchange for a penny of five to support the family

She pretends to be a star, really, she is a great star  
Her avid followers are tirelessly spreading the news 
Of her, being a god fearing servant, yet, her prince 
Unbeknownst, is a top gambling lord, under her skirt

She doesn’t seem to notice her prince’s illegal deeds
For she’s too damn evil of her own, a cheater of a kind
Thanks to the whistle blower, who exposed her color-
Her true identity, immoral, worst than her predecessors

Yet, she doesn’t want to relinquish the stolen throne
To cover up, she uses all her power in order to restore 
Her pride, in return, the freedom of speech is repress
And those who challenge her will is silence to death  

She is, indeed, a star and she will never be forgotten
For a star without shine, always takes the center stage
To you my people, rise and stand against ruler like her
If, you want to see our motherland once more on top

Mr. Moon and I

You an I are one, alone, not star stands by your side;
Although, many may admire you, you sit in solitude in the sky.

I understand your plight, many associates, yet no companions;
They pop up once or twice, but mostly they leave you, up there abandoned.

Yet you continue to shine bright, never letting the cycle dwindle your shine;
Oh how you an I resemble, never letting the isolation dwell to deep within your mind.

It is nature's will you see, some gain strength by being alone;
But I ask you my dear friend, have you ever wanted a star to call your own.

That one star you can count on, a star as beautiful and gentle as could be;
A vision of heavens loveliness, a star that allowed you to be who you wanted to be.

Is this a dream you and I share? Has the idea ever made you stop and think?
Or do you enjoy the solitude of the sky? Is that something which makes you feel distinct.

You know I respect all that you do, All alone shining bright Mr. Moon;
Only thing that we do not have in common is, for you the stars will be out soon.

You look for the shooting star going across the sky.

You look for that pot of gold maybe at the end of a rainbow.

You haven't found it yet so you give up hope.

Then out of no where a star comes out of nowhere.

It isn't like most stars because it is filled with so many things.

So you create a circle for the star to let out its awesomeness.

Each day your days get better as the star shows off its charms

You are his lucky charm.

Bringing him a good luck charm with  a pot of love.

The Last Piece

 Your body , Your body , I like when it move real slow -
I can't sleep and when i think my mind is where my body need's to go -
Just thinking about you make's my heart spin -
My wild sex imagination is only during it with you , my friend -
I wish you would answer -
 Oh ! How i wish you would call -
But , I see your wishing upon a star got you in love so , I'll take this as my 
down fall -
It was a walk that i would never walk again -
It was a run that i tripped the whole time i ran -
 You knew you had me from the first time you said , I'll be back and you never 
came -
When i should have closed the door's ; I allowed the storm to pore down more
rain -
It would be nice for one last time to sit down and eat -
 Pretend that this is the first time we would meet -
But , when one is in love there's only a star to wish upon -
This is the last piece of my broken heart , I'll be bringing in 2006 all alone -

A star in the sky is hard to reach,
But I have a star I can touch.
The sky star is far away,
Mine is close.
They both shine.
The sky star shines bright, but cold,
My star shines bright and warm.
They eyes of my star twinkle,
My star is alive and human.
The star in the sky sets a goal,
A goal found, but never reached.
My stars not my goal,
But a force behind me to reach it.

Wandering the cobbled roads of Boston’s misty night
The stars spun like dew in spiders’ web glistening with delight
Low I came to a bridge, stone and fair and white
Over Charles’ river dark it reflected pale and bright

Looking off the bridge of stone, at the river ever changing
The starry night, the bridge of white, fragmented, rearranging   
As if under Charles' influence, every molecule trembled in its ebb
Which finally shook a sparkling star from night's illusive web

I watched the falling star dive, it dove with fiery might   
When a great shadowed beast sprung across the night
It could not escape the Attercop who fed with great delight
She who spins the starry night with four pair spindly legs
And month by month rolls the moon, her hanging sack of eggs
When the moon 'gins to wain her children descend and brightly sing 
Filling the night sky anew, with stars, which hang from silky string
And if her children attempt escape, to dart or flash away
She scoops them in ominous jaws, like crocodile's prey
Fear the Great Attercop in night, for dire is her sting
And on wandering children verdant, she is known to spring

Stay my child in your bed, sleep neat until the dawn  
For it is the flesh of infancy she feeds her offspring on

Starlight, star bright;
first star I see tonight, 
I wish I may, I wish I might,
bestow the reality to this life.
An innocent child, a broken heart,
you name the drama, she’s played the part.
Ruthless fiends leave her godless,
like her make up leaves her flawless.
Cherry kissed lips form a pout,
lipstick distorts her mouth.
Mascara seems as a necessity,
because beauty is only skin deep.

I once knew a star
   That lit up my life
It lit up my days
   Along with the night
It's brilliance so bright
   It blocked out the sun
Outshined every star
   That the universe spun

This star was so special
   That i followed it's light
I followed it's path
   And trusted my sight
The rays from the star
   Filled my dark life with joy
Something i haven't felt
   Even as a young boy

But, this star, it betryayed me
   And right from the start
Used it's white hot bright rays
   To burn a hole through my heart
It blinded my eyes
   Got me lost on my way
Turned my daylight to dark
   Only nighttime, no day

This star nearly killed me
   From blindness of sight
I kept falling and hurting
   I could only see night
'Till finally i stood
   Turned my back to the star
Now my sight's comming back
   I can see very far

The star went away
   Left me cold in the night
Though fearful and lonely
   Other stars shined for light
I'll miss the bright light
   But i remember it's cost
And the lesson it taught me
   Will never be lost.

Born under a starry night.... 
This I must tell.. 
The night, the star fell.......... 
Sent a daughter of light 

This clear night....... 
she came as a gift...... 
you see.... 
A daughter of light, 
in a world of night 
It was meant to be 

The heart was right, 
when that star fell 
It sent a daughter of light 
These thoughts dwell 

Only love can bring......... 
a girlchild..... 
on a night.... 
so calm, 
so mild........ 
Bathed in starlight, 
her heart did sing 

When stars fall, 
on clear nights 
Daughter of lights, 
come into the world 
Bringing their love unfurled 

A beautiful and rare event......... 
When a star can fall 
What a star sent, 
love unfurled, 
on a clear night 
A daughter of light, 
to illuminate the world

Memory Necklace

String me a necklace, a lunar eclipse
of shadows, of baubles, of eternal bliss
Memory make me in frozen star dust
and roll out the heavens just like we discussed
You are my anchor in times of distress
my haven, my shoulder, my afternoon kiss
You salve my wounds with a quiet decree
and string me a necklace with gifts from the sea
Opposite shores pushing waves to and fro
in the moonlight we met, in our liquid we flow
With a braiding of star dust we necklace the moon
so she's dressed to the hilt of the luna de lune
We are the music of husband and wife
Trailing our memories behind us in life
You decorate me with love from the sea
You are my passion, eternally.

Star Light, Star Bright

Star light, star bright, first star I see tonight.
It’s been awhile since I’ve gazed upon you.
As I lay here, weary from life’s brutal fight,
I’ve come to ask a rigid question; what do I do?

I’ve hit so many curves on this chosen path,
Drastically clinging to everything I hold close.
Behold I’ve been stricken with such a wrath,
A wrath that cripples me with its lethal dose.

Suddenly I was left alone, helpless and left to bear,
She didn’t want my love anymore, it wasn’t enough.
Her heart went cold, leaving me to exist on a prayer,
Even though all of this is in the past, it’s all still so tough.

I’ve fallen to my knees, wishing for an answer,
Why am I plagued with all these darkening fears?
My father battling valiantly with his carnivorous cancer,
Devouring whom I admire, driving me to angered tears.

My mother battles so nobly with her own illness,
Also beset by her very own devastating worries.
I think of her sanity dwindling as I lie in stillness,
Leaving my soul cold as the wind of a thousand flurries.

Tonight, I stare up at you, hoping you can guide me,
Wishing for what isn’t very likely as the tears weld.
But you’ve shined a vigorous light that I clearly see,
One once witnessed in my past, one I’ve gratefully held.

Maybe you can take me away from all this grueling pain?
To be a star that shines down on such glorious nights.
Maybe I will bring about happiness, a hope I wish to gain,
But this is just a shattered dream from which my hand writes.

So, I bring all of this to you, dear old friend,
Though it’s been awhile, I see you shine so bright.
I leave you with one last wish; to bring all this to an end,
I wish I may, I wish I might, grant me this wish I wish for…tonight.

Singing Stars

Remember when the singing stars 
knew our names?
We spun at midnight on the lawn
We danced with silver feet
The grass lay down beneath
our steps 
submissively complete.
Each star we saw, we touched
that night
Remember how they fell?
A spinning sight
As we, exhausted
sweet collapsed the lawn
and lay deep breathing...
and laughing...
And laughing...
Gardenias in bloom 
leaving their scent on our skin.
Grass in our hair
to be earth in our sleep.
Stars in death
leaving their marks on our eyes.
and childhood running away from us
bolting, a star burning out in midnight skies,
down the summer asphalt, 
to grey.

file behind she with the the diamond soles, 
drown in the rays of a flowing gown:a star leads the 
camels down the dunes:tramp, wanderer,serf. 

coals that fuel fire:chick and hen,small shrub and big tree, 
lost in a gown:nameless,shrunk. 
thats when they ask you"why"?or"live this way". 
the vines and trendils are climbing,creeping around, 
its a stair, ladder around the green stalk. 

the queen were's those costomised clothes,gown and crown and 
sits on the throne,above,undisputed. 

sure many attires we know:flesh,fur,me and you!!! 
i remember i was taught to climb through a stair,ladder 
but as i look into the sublunary,moon sun star 
i still think otherwise.

Hope you can see us from high above.
Help us be strong and brave forever no matter.
Be with us always in every which way you can in your kindness.
I will always find your light and keep it in my young heart in my best way possible.
You left us for a reason and we love you in our hearts.
You saved my life to give yours away which I’ll never forget.
It breaks my heart in tears terribly.
Your star will follow me everywhere to guide me in good and bad times.
Your in presence when were in pain and in happiness.
Lead us where we will be safe like the star you carry for each of us.
Let us accept who we are and why were on this earth.
Let your angels carry us where you are so peaceful when our time arrives.
My Prayer, Your Prayer, Our Prayers
Forever in our hearts.
With love always,
Your niece, your family.

Friendship Trust and Honesty

You were my shinning star in my darkest night
Your gentle voice arose above the cries of the demons 
And took my tormented spirit into your calming light
Searching for the person I lost so long ago
All that was left was an empty shell and a man I didn't know
You saw what others failed to see
Looking past the walls I built around me
I could feel your spirit touch my very soul
As if you placed all that was lost to me back again 
And made me once again whole
Giving me friendship, trust and honesty
But more than that you believed in me
 So many things I didn't say
I thought I would maybe someday 
But alas that never was to be
And all those thoughts and words are gone for eternity
Now I see though too late what I had been searching for all this time
The pity was I was a fool not to see it or just too blind
And so I face this time and place alone
 My shining star you will have to go on for now here is where you belong
To give to others what you gave to me
 Your friendship, trust and honesty.

Star of the Sea

                 Upon the battered shore of life
                  As waves crest and descend
                    Remains a life yet hopeful
                       To one day try to mend
                       A sea star like no other
                       With one leg lost to sea
                      Gave up? Oh no not ever
                      For it knew that it will be
                   With hopes forever staying
                 For a wave to come and take
                 The sea star kept on praying
                 To find its way into the wake
                  As the sun got to its hottest
                Where hopes were dying fast
                 A wave had come upon him
                    To take him back at last
                Then there within the depths
               With his friends under the sea
                 The sea star gave its thanks
                For that wave that came to be

Still Spinning

Each inspiration, a different star point
tenderly dipped in leaded glass 
and allowed to dry.
Star skins unmolded birth devotion,
breed insurrection,
and are extremely edible 
(though they never pass through you)
They go down sharp and imbed themselves
into your throat, your lungs, your very being.
Each point of inspiration a delicacy,
a mood swing in transit,
a feast.
Spread me this feast in a famine, 
starving of long burnt out star shine and glass
I am filled up at each point of abandon,
glowing white heat and still spinning...

When a star is ready
It is filled with love and magic
When a star must go
For, its' journey is about to begin
It must be released 
From the highest parapet
So that others can see its' glow

To rise slowly
In a Western sky
Glitter bright
For, we never die
We are nothing but light

In a room full of stars
The love you have inside
Your light too
Is placed in a star
By a Princess
When a star is ready
It will climb high
The light filling the sky
Capturing the magic
Of you.

Inside us all is a brilliant star,
A star shining brightly, 
Guiding our way,
And when we get older,
The star gets older too,
The light in it dims,
The light on our errant path fades,
And we wander in the dark,
Tripping on our own feet.
There is a spark of the star,
Deep inside,
The spark will be lit when we leave,
And our star will be added to others,
Others who have found their way,
Others with the star,
The star that is in them
Never truly burned out,
And they never truly forgot it was there,
They just pretended it wasn’t,
Put it under a blanket,
Stowed it away,
Determined to find their own way,
Through the pitch black of night,
Without the help of their star.
When they met the light at the End,
The End of all things, 
The star was lit again,
To guide and guide and guide,
Never letting us off the path,
Always our light in the dark.

A Star For Wishing

I spied a star for wishing on 
  Atop a world wrapped up in white, 
A silver furnace dead and gone, 
  Yet through the aeons blazing bright. 

The tails of comets streaking through, 
  A sky of mystic diamond gleam, 
Create a matrix red and blue 
  Imprinted on the heaven's scheme. 

I count the cost of missing things, 
  Of sadness scouring deep in me, 
To you my heart cries out and clings 
  To loving, yearning desperately. 

I spied a star for wishing on 
  And as a child I wished I might, 
Speed through the days 'till they are gone 
  And once again you grace my sight...

The wind fell away
Clouds broke
By evening
The suns' hazy glow
Changed the light
The ending of the day
The first star shone
On a horizon
Tinged with red and gold
It shone bright
With a soft silver light
The deepening blue
Replaced a red sky
The coming of the night
A star in the west
To follow
Until landfall
A wooden ship to find
All the things that lie
In a shadowfire heart
A wooden ship to carry
The heartstone gem
From the world of men
Tapestries too
The treasures that lie 
In your heart
On a ship
On a course
Plotted on a captains' chart

Karma gets people...

She bites with gusto, 
balance of justice 
negativity masks truth, 

she'll cut you to the bone 
barefoot, soul naked 
deny her, no time to choke 
her fire without smoke, 

she'll bury you in ashes 
you will in some moment 
realize, your life self, damage, 

she'll make you ask 
the hard question 
when did your life begin will your truth end 

everything full circle 
seventy trips round the sun 
no dress rehearsal 

pick up the slack, raise the bar 
forgive yourself, claim your star 

don't give her reason to look you up- 
start searching, your star is waiting
