Keep well away from dark, forbidding dreams --
Instead, stay near the hearth and play your lyre;
Sleep even so will wait on wooden beams,
Seducing you beside your cozy fire.
Meticulous and careful you may be,
Evicting darting shadows with the blaze --
Inside your quiet cottage, patiently,
Night's emissary holds you in her gaze.
The cuckoo calls as midnight church-bells chime;
His warning message echoes from the walls --
Enchanted ears have lost all track of time,
So far from whispered fears as silence falls.
Her chilling hands then rip away your voice,
And images assail your inner eyes --
Denying you the act of conscious choice,
On captive lips she mixes truth and lies.
When sunlight climbs the sky and breaks her spell,
She blows a darkened kiss, and bids farewell.

Saxon life a hostile time of birthright borne
Exceptions never made but laws and death
Protecting the farmlands and farming crops
Time to ‘call the mare” as proud reaps meet,with
Every good day of septum, a blessing to Vulcan
Many fearheart this month of “ fire and forge"
But bless the crop, their gerst monath with corn dolls
Evenings long on merriment and barley wines
Remembering this , another fertile haefest
based loosely on Saxon traditions, farmers would reap crops quickly then with the last sheaths create a corn dolly in the shape of a Mare, and send it to their neighbours to taunt then that their reapers were the best,.

They fought for honor, a way of life,
For their country and their King.
Willing to lay down their lives,
Against adversaries overbearing.
I wonder what it was like,
As thousands marched acrossed the field
What courage and faith they must of had,
To meet death with just a sword and
They must of had the attitude,
That God was on their side,
To advance into tribulation,
With confidence and pride.
The dead were given lavished funerals,
The living would mourn and pray.
Each warrior knew in the next battle,
It might be his burial day.
What would you die for?
Is there anything you hold that dear?
I feel each of us cherish something,
We would die for, in spite of the fear.

Shake this, crisps on bread.

Ships float up forever out
Pilots who once sailed seas find new spirit
Airborne crafts fill the air
Children grow into machines that take them away
Earth was once their only home
And now the universe in endless boundaries is theirs
Geared up for foreign playgrounds, gone in an instant
Eternity is only minutes away and just beginning there

Glorious are the days we ride, my love.
You and I riding in the morning light.
Passions racing hearts are thundering.
Sunrise explodes pink and purple streaks across the sky.
You and I smiling, riding together in the first light.
Kindred spirits racing together chasing the morning star.
Intoxicated on the morning air.
Nowhere, but here in this moment.
Glorious is the day we ride.

Riding in the kiddies section all day long at an amusement park
Underestimating the number of people crowding every turn
Noticed a train pass by ……… hmmmmmmm???????….
Always wondered what a thrill it would be……..
Walking toward the loading Depot with anticipation
A fear grips my t-shirt and begins to pull me back
“You sure you want to board this large train”? Fear whispers
The conductor begins his call …”All Aboard!”…….”ALL ABOARD!!!”
Recorded history begins to play and then .. click, clack .. chookie …choo …choo
And the loudest whistle I’ve ever heard , TOOOOT….TOOOOOOOT
I grip Mama’s neck and begin to scream loud sounds of my own
Never again will I board an 8 MPH runaway train ==============

Today’s the day.
Our training is to be put on display.
Upon each is a test of the heart.
Guts to do it all from the start.
Here we go over the first wall, sublime.
Men and Women at the line.
Utter the words “HOO RAH” in time.
Determined to finish the challenge ahead.
Defined by how they react to others in dread.
Each of us who finish the course and stand.
Reach a new respect for those who sport the orange headband.

Sophisticated city full of blitzkrieg, I am just a visitor interested in your history.
To travel so far, I must enjoy the sights I see.
Riding via the scenic view to capture some photography,
Easy to relax and just be me.
Elfie and excited, I am pulsated by such beauty.
Living just for the moments of captivity, I send a shout out.
Ialysus is a place to drive.
Got the streetlights in my eyes, relishing the peace inside.
Heights I never figure I would reach.
This came from living right, I guess.
Shimmering sparkles of cava I will drink at my penthouse that sits in view of the

Yesterday you told me your love was here to stay
All those cruel things you had to say
My love for you will never go away
Troubles in my heart now heavily weigh
Seemed as though to you I appeared as prey
So the only thing left for you to do is to slay
Far from the dock of our once loving bay
Away I say with all this dismay
Now my dear lose all your fear
It is no longer needed hear
Look upon the future with much cheer
As though yesterday was always here
Though tomorrows will never be clear
They're times when I wont be cavalier
Here is a time when I am being sincere
To make you aware that I shall persevere
Stay with yesterday without a tear
Oh how I shall rue the day
I pray that when tomorrow comes
Believe I will sing instead of hum if
In your eyes I see a sight that will convey
Yesterday is here to forever stay

Now who would of thought the thoughts that would truly get the mind lost in fragile thought?
So much on our known life,
about unknown death when we laugh at others but at ourselves we really cry,
in our very own hidden truth lies,
amongst our own poeple who we defy,
until we fight,
for wrongs for personal rights,
**** the darkness is what make us appreciate the light,
I dont talk the talk nor do I walk the walk because I walk my talk while I swagger and swerve im my talks through these walks,
Life can get so messy with death that its time for those of us here to grab the broom so God can mop,
I live life to the fullest with what little I have because I dont have a lot,
I live life shitty sometimes like almost everyone else like it or not,
Im not special Im so unique Im individual with word talent I know I got,
I know what I dont have so its important more knowledge among me is sought,
I can be wrong half the time but can still make it 100% right I was self-taught among a young soul that seems to be bought,
I got a bad limp but dont get me wrong I can still gallup through darkness while I jog lost in the early morning fog waiting to be patiently found in the midnight lounge where I trot,
Truly lost so easily in profound hard thoughts litterally running from the cops waiting to duck and dodge from open gunshots,
Bodies and shells drop where caskets are made among a dying crop,
I can still make a splatter where there was just but a tiny dot,
I used to have merely nothing now atleast I can truly say I have a safe spot,
I was found looking for truth in lies lost in thought....

Spend your hard-earned cash on fuel for takeoff.
Pray that the government does not find out until gone.
Allow your free time for checking weather, not golf.
Case the local food store for dry goods you can con.
Evaluate your water supply needs, no water in cosmos.
Secure a safe place for waste, body waste floats to easy.
Have welding knowledge, so your stored rocket is close.
Internet may bring suspicion making government queasy.
Plan to go up straight in the air, horizontal rockets scare.

Video games control kids minds
In a lesser way than parents do
Definitely gives a channel for frustration
Extreme aggravation, or even humiliation
Or allows them to explore new world and improve reflexes
Games are just that, they're games
A parents job is to take control and if they don't agree with it
Make your kid play something else.
Especially when they're adolescents, they need
Structure. If parents don't provide it then we're all in trouble.

Advancements. Yoga pants,
Tight thighs, erotic prance.

Opulent in your sexual fixations and you've
Nominated me because of my self confidence!
Sexy as hell and loves to dominate, that
Apple bottom makes me want to procreate.

Increased flow rate!

Hooves, with majestic rhythm pound the ground
Off the beat'n path. Roam'n wild, roam'n free
Refined in grace, loyal, noble. So missunderstood
Stunning in appearance, with mane and tail adrift
Enchantedly each strand of hair, dances in the wind
Spirited, radiant, dynamic in every way.
