Open Sores

I am a coward with open sores. 
I write and wonder who it bores. 
I hear my heart and mind argue repeatedly. 
I see others carrying out my dreams; 
that’s what’s defeated me.
 
I am a coward with open sores. 
I pretend open doors are closed, and walk the other way. 
I touch base with the fear in my heart, tearing me apart,
leaving nothing to say... 
I worry the world will leave me. 
I cry because no one believes in me. 

I am a coward with open sores. 
I understand nothing comes easy. 
I say I’m happy, but even I don’t believe me. 
I dream I am healed and brave. 
I try to overcome my weaknesses before I’m in my grave. 
I hope you hear me.
I’m on all fours. 
I am a coward with open sores.

Paint With Fire

Pen in hand, against the paper,
An artist must be left to bleed,
Inner thoughts become written words.
No better way has been found
To empty out a soul.

With growing eagerness,
I add fuel to the fire
To induce passion's flame,
Hoping the blaze never dies.

Forever and a day, and longer,
Inside my heart the fire burns.
Revealing to another soul
Every spark of my inspiration.

MY ETERNAL WIFE

Most wonderful woman God gave to me
You fill my heart with so much joy and glee

Everything I will drop just to heed your call
Together with you I can face it all
Enchanting lady to my heart you hold the key
Rightfully yours from the beginning till eternity
Never will I cheat or betray your trust
Always I promise this until I turn to dust
Loving you with a love that forever will last

Warming my nights and making my days bright
Inspiration you bring makes me want to write
Fulfilling my needs in every aspect
Eternally it is you I will love and respect

Eye Candy

Double Acrostic

I just want to mention before you read this poem that "Oasis" by Charmaine Chircop
allowed me the inspiration to write this. Thoughts had been swirling through my mind 
for about 24 hours and I was having difficulty finding the form to express them. Those
of you that know me know that I favor difficult forms rather than plain Freestyle. 
Thank you Charma, It is good to be back!!


Eye Candy



Erratic, heart thrusting through my chest!
Yoga is in session, followers in succession! 
Edible delights without excess embellishment.

Core poses carve, define rippled mid-sections
Anxiety has subsided, muscles relaxed. Objective,
Nurture those curves! Endure tension, calm her nerves.
Durability, her gift is my defection. Connection, A fifteen
Year friendship and we are both free agents!

why lie

Lies hurt the love and especially all the trust people put in you. 
Everyday You wake up saying to yourself,  It's ok to lie. 
No one's going to find out or bring it out in the open. 
I can hold on to a heart full of love and trust for another day.
Knowing it would cause pain and the all the love and trust they 
have would disapear instantly.

So why keep lying and filling her head and heart full of dreams 
that You know will never come true.  Only leaving her with nothing
Just the lies You told.

In the end is it really worth trying to hold on to her love. Being bound by 
the lies you told.  Now leaving her to deal with a broken heart.  And
watching her world crumble into pieces.  As the tears of pain slide down
her face.  

As you walk away. While saying nothing but I'm sorry.  I never meant to 
hurt you. Over and Over again.  Trying to figure out how to make a peaceful
exit out of her life.  

Your left thinking was it worth losing an angel's heart by lying. Now she's gone.

Unloved

Up in the sky I see God's handiwork
Not the same in my home
Love left so long ago 
Open wounds have healed
Velvet thread was used to sew
Every break in the heart but
Drops of blood leak around each stitch

Unfeeling now each time the hurts
Not the same as years ago
Lonely from years of manipulation
Open wounds want to reopen
Velvet thread is getting very old
Every new break pulls
Drops of blood still seep through

Unguarded the heart is exposed
Nothing has changed
Left is only pain that is composed
On top of the broken heart
Velvet thread is getting soaked
Every drop of blood spills onto it
Death from a broken heart  is near

Magnum Opus

Man of words, strange creature of fiery intention,
Amplifying pictures with that restless imagination,
Great are the images spurting forth from your pen,
Nothing holds you down, working alone in the den; 
Unto the night you toil, pushed by an alien power,
Mastering some inner demons, taming your fear.

Oh how you search for truths floating up in the air,
Producing tremors with the raging force they stir,
Until at last your labors come to a perfect ending, 
Shaking humanity with the hard lessons they bring.

Repugnant Shrapnel

The flood of human remains plummeting downwards. Horizon blackened, jolted from the sky. Towering waves of obscure aftermath swarm to the heavens. With a slight endeavor, kingdoms turn to squander. 
Ravaging paths meet and become hordes of ailment. God’s hand has erected the retched bowels of man’s mass burials.
An avalanche of skulls,
Rain down the exhumed past of lost ancestry. Prophecies fulfilled to our graves of dispersed dead.

POET'S POEMS

People who spend their time devoted to poetry
Optimistic people who can be pessimistic as well
Elegant writers throughout society waiting ever so slowly and patiently to be known
Those who utter their feelings in to a well thought out and admired poem
Spirits with a talent, and who are happy.

Pleasing to read, persuades others to write poems as well
Of all forms of literature poems seem the best
Eccentric writings that inspire, express, and inform
Modern society vs. ancient work
Supercilious poems that express thee

thank u for looking at this poem.
hope u enjoyed- WÖLF

Beauty

Blooming pure petals of love paint a newly found scape
Ever so delicate a passion longing for a love to complete
A graceful flight of a free bird flutters past a heart of pure
Unleashed temptations dance in the summer heat whispering words
Today I hold a hope tight to my heart of eyes that saturate an angelic song
Your festive freedom captivates this curious heart, only for you I long to dance....

Paint With Fire

Paper fantasies crepe wings airbrushed in fire  
Another beautiful canvass full of angel’s in a choir 
Incandescent voices reaching the loft of heaven’s door 
Nestled softly against the back drop of a black pearl sky
Tamara paints their ethereal bodies with a slow moving fire 
 

Within each one of us is a latent artist ready to explode  
Invite the inspiration in, and watch what you can create 
The world is full of subject in all of God’s creation 
Highlight his world with flaming colors watch the scene
 

Fusion of fire 
Intrinsic requiem  
Radiant 
Ember

Mother's Death

M  y mother died when I was fifteen months old
O  h how my heart hurt when I called her so bold
T  o heaven her soul did soar_ leaving her children
H  ere on this earth, with lives now so totally barren
E  each day I wonder why so young she had to go
R  easons I will never know in this life though
S  atan did his work in destroying family

D  evil stirred the father to drink, compulsorily
E  aten away was his heart from the loss; Granny
A  ttended five children's needs, extra for baby
T  o family members word was spread_ youngest given
H  ome by adoptive family; but this for child heaven

A House Is Not A Home


Another day passes yet here I stand
Home is somewhere that my heart can land
Open your eyes and you shall see
Unleash your spirit and learn to be free.

Sometimes the world just beats me down
Everything vanishes and no one’s around
I don’t understand why this happens to me
Seeing then understanding seems to be key.

Now that my heart knows where to go
Only one thing I shall need to know
Today will pass regardless of what I do
Another step closer to understanding what’s true.

Home is a place where your heart feels safe
One step closer to reaching this place
Many words are spoken yet few are heard
Everyone knows home is more than a word.

Happiness

Happiness (acrostic)
Happiness is found within not in people and things

Acceptance of the present regardless of what fears/ inner demons you may be facing

Persistence in seeking love and happiness inside ourselves so we may experience the abundance of love and beauty that encompasses us

Patience with ourselves as we learn and grow through our personal trials and tribulations life often presents to us, unexpectedly

Inside ourselves are all the answers we seek, believe in yourself with a smile on your face

Never give up on yourself! Challenge your belief systems with an open heart and a positive mind set

Endless love & happiness awaits you, seek it consciously without delay

Spirit of love is the essence of our original form; happiness is our natural state of being

Smile in the face of adversity and feel your spirit soar to new heights experiencing love, peace and happiness from this moment forward.  Live as if there is no tomorrow, for you reap what you sow :) :) :)

PAINT WITH FIRE



Palettes mixed in shadow and night Absorbing brushstrokes of heart’s angst; Into the quiet comes starlight Nectar from oil drips on his hands To capture blinks of enamored scenes. Wild the contours pressed by each touch Igniting art, vivid as red Till pigments burst on moist paintbrush Heated tones marking final strokes. Flamed abstract spreads hues that collide If only to tint blaze of shades; Rage expressed for his deceased bride Eyes melting on a still portrait.

Who Am I

Who am I?
Question indeed!

  W-eaned from tender 
age,in noble family of ten.
  H-urt by the demise of 
the tube that brought 
me into this theater of 
struggles and pains.
  O-rdered about by the 
whimps of this 
world,facing the hurdles 
of life daily from 
cradle,never giving up 
hope.
  
  A-fine young man of 28 
I am,who has the 
experience and wisdom 
of the aged.
  M-astering the arts of 
life-learning from lessons 
of life's victims and 
didactic poems 'cos man 
of fame I intend to be for 
I bear the name Bob.

  I-lost my poetic gift at a 
stage but recovered it in 
poetrysoup for invisible 
entities say a 
lesser being I shall be,but 
another encourages me 
to move on,for great is 
one who comes out of 
the shackles of life 
undeterred for this is who 
I am.

Lost

Where is thy heart supposed to go for healing, When all of world comes crashing down around you.  Leaving you with nothing but lost feelings.
 Wondering aimlessly around looking for some glimpse of happiness.  


Searching what's left of the heart for hope that love will live again.  Watching the love you have fade away slowly.  Leaving a trail of tears. 
 Waking up everyday trying to put on a smile while falling apart inside. 

Not knowing where to go or who to ask for help to save what's left of thy heart.  Only praying to God that your life will end soon.  So all the pain well be gone forever.  Finally leaving you in peace.

Teaching a Young Lover

The first time witnessing the twain mountain peaks,
High above the echoes of our heart beat,
Erected I stood, in awe I stare, with eyes devouring nature’s beautiful souvenir.

Below the Twin crags fingers softly stroll along a sweat drenched path.
Inch by inch digits artfully tread around a shallow furrow.
Racing heart beats are like the wings of a thousand sparrows.
Down in yonder valley two fingers gently creep.
Skin shivers on the mound where the fescue freely grows. 

Along the cleft, in the distal knoll, a tributary streams.
Near the wet land is a cave, a place of fertile dreams.
Desire drives daring digits to dive deeper into the warm unknown.

Tell me lover, tell me more about the birds and the bees.
How did the stork bring mother a girl like me?
Every time you’re next to me, what is it that I feel?

Blazing like a fire is this tension in my blood.
Enthralled me with your touch
Engulf me in your love. 
Serinade me with these words: "I love you, oh so much."

HAPPY NEW YEAR TO ALL

Haste great messenger to mirth's tribes and throngs
Announce the old year's ending like our epic songs
Properly written poorly told, poorly written in translation
Purge each heart and prime each purposed hope again
Youth and wisdom will meet matured in one refrain

Nature reminds us, everything true a second chance is given
Emancipate all dreams, break the chain on every heart
Welcome the new beginning and a vision of heaven

Yield neither courage nor faith when life falls apart
Endeavor to rearrange the pieces into a fresh vision
Appraise it, build value in it, share it, grow it
Reach beyond the self, and invest it with the Master's spirit. 

                                  Trumpeting desires the new year calls
                                  Onward to your purpose for time still swiftly runs

                                  All men dream, but few follow its course
                                  Let it ring of heart and soul, its happy source
                                  Loudly then: happy new year to all, my friends!

MY QUIET PLACE

MY QUIET PLACE

Moment and time pass
Yet there is still struggle and task
Quicken by what I see and feel
Uniquely I want to away flee
Intent of my heart is to me a gentle breeze
Engraved in my heart in a world-tragic
Total quietness and sacred serenity
Peaceful like as it is in Zion the mount of ruby
Lost in it and never do I wish to found
Archaic it may seem but listen to the sound 
Caption of it as it flow in your heart it is your thought
Eternal would I want to be in my thought but staring at me is reality

This is a combination Acrostic and couplets..
My understanding that Acrostics do not rhyme but mine is actually couplets written in poulter's measure..A person who sold eggs would sometimes give a dozen eggs for a price and sometimes if the hens were laying extra good a person would get 14 eggs of the same price..Lucky them..So 12/14 in rhyming couplets..

FRIENDS FOREVER

the parlour of my heart was empty, no wheels in my cart,
sweet friends, you filled the gap~you filled the heart!
lifeless was my life ~no rain no breeze,
sweet friends, you painted it with memories!
you've struggled for words when my verses didnt rhyme,
you've given me an hour when you had no spare time!
when my life turns challenging and misfortunes seem to crush,
the memories come to light of the daes spent together by us!
days we have spent together~ together we spent the hours,
we have played with the dust ~ have played with the flowers!
when that the tears of sorrow have kissed your cheeks,
friends i've cried at heart, have cried for weeks!
long years of togetherness will shortly fade away,
the sun will soon set and end our golden day!
but i treasure you in my heart wrapped in love,
no failure ~ no success, MY FRIENDS ABOVE...........

A Life Lost


 Angel of mine, where are you now? Hours drift away like seconds as I

Lift my somber heart and head to the heavens asking, "why, oh why?"
In one moment, your tired eyes held my gaze; then, with one kiss goodbye, 
Frozen in time, forever you were gone; a failing heart will surely die,
Existing in flesh no more; yet our love surpasses death and the tears I cry.

Losing you again tonight in fragments of dreams, a heart shatters. I rely
On the memory of your smile at dawn, the scent of your pillow, your sigh
Swept softly across my ear lobe in whispers of love. I know, my tears will dry
Tomorrow under blue sky when I see you twinkle in our little boy's eye.

Losing Him

Buried secrets…pulled out of dank soil and shoved into the light
Unjustified accusations, exhausting and expensive to fight
Tainted and tattered relationships flutter in and endless wind

Impossible to undo or explain, especially to a young mind, closed within

Wistful memories of easy smiles and open affection
Innocence gone; hatred coaxed by lies and deception
Love too strong and proud to let go, perceived as little more than a show
Lost for words as his disrespect slowly smolders and grows

Lingering awkward anger, followed by confusion and sighs
Each hateful word and hostile look, thrown like daggers from eyes I don’t recognize
Torn between a mother’s hope and helpless frustration

He is resolute; seeing only black and white…allowing no gray in this situation
I have given up explaining, reasoning, and rationale that falls on deaf ears
My heart breaking with each failed attempt; desperately fighting back tears

Gone forever is the boy I knew only months ago
Oblivious to my intent and resolute to his own; my heart tells me to say no,
…But I will let him go

Dear John

Loneliness is a fear that sometimes cease life 
Cutting through my heart carving its way like a knife 
Holding me at a place where I feel for someone I need 
To make me feel appreciated, loved and wanted indeed 
You asked what is in my heart I once held you second to none 
But now here is the truth of my now Dear John 
Dear John you made feel like you will always be there 
You told me you there was no one else who can care 
You claimed to love me and promised me your all 
But you busy pleasuring life every-time I call 
How could you have held me in your heart when you had none 
I gave you my all, blindly believed you now its all gone 
You took everything from me you left me with nothing 
You said I was yours and so I kept giving 
All I have lost and you are no where to be found 
Remember you stepped on me when I was on the ground 
After that You said love was just a word only fools believed in 
You laughed at me when you saw me crippled and bleeding 
You said I will never be loved you told me to just hate 
I had nothing else but those words so to me they were great 
John I have a confession that will change things forever 
There was more than you to life but did I see it? Never 
I only knew this after you left there was a stranger 
He gave me all you took and in my life he became the arranger 
John you have nothing here any more 
So I give you up and close that door 
You will never come back because there is no cause 
He told me the truth and loved even my flaws 
Something you could have never done 
John you lost me now be gone 
When I met Him and he was my heart's desire 
John for the first time in my life I saw you were a liar

SOCIETY

If you don't eat, you're anorexic if you do eat, you're a fat ass.
If you don't wear makeup, you're ugly. If you wear makeup, you're a fake.
If you're loud, you're annoying; if you're quiet, you're weird.
If you're good in school, you're smart; if you say something wrong, you're stupid.
If you take pictures, you're an attention-whore; if you don't stalk your friends you're not cool.
If you wear sweats, you're underdressed; if you wear a dress, you're overdressed.
If you don't have boobs, no guys like you; if you have boobs, they're fake.
If you don't have a boyfriend, you're a loser; if you have one, he's cheating on you.
You tell us to be who we are but then you go and judge us about it. So now, do you see how hard it is for us to just be ourselves?

Perhaps just ILLUSION
Or a mirage,
Each blink of the eye-
Then an ephemeral
Reality before me

CREATIVITY ever my liege
EVENTUALLY I will conceive

Eternal flame of my heart, true love for you I profess
Lady so magnificent, please spare me some time
I promise to love you with a love that's sublime
Nefertiti is nothing compared to thee
Aphrodite is what you really are to me

True love from my heart I offer to you
Radiant beauty that makes my heart feel brand new
Immaculate angel, woman that I desire
No one else can put my soul on fire
In love with you I will forever stay
Darling even if you are millions of miles away
Angel I know you already answered another man's call
Death would be sweeter now because I can't have you at all

salt and spice

salt and spice,
I love her smiles,
each time i gaze at her sight,
i feel high in style.

Salt and spice,
my heart and my mind,
my love my life,
spice up my heart.

Salt and spice,
we will always live together,
never leaving each other,
we will go further.

To the great beyonders,
where love is called sweetness,
and not undue swiftness,
caress my heart with the flavor that is sweetest.

I'm the prince,
you are the princess,
my salt on lovely spices,
my all my only mindset so priceless.

CIGGYS DAY OUT

Ciggy’s day out this is just another normal walk but where shall I go to the haberdashery or to the local library on this wonderful February day. I think I will start at the library and look for a book on an auto harp or maybe a book about a calliope. So I can use them in my collaboration latter today. I am a little thirsty I think I will get a soda in an aluminum can of course with no algae. Now back to my condominium I will go cuz it’s time to start my live web show.

The Place to Be

No
One or no other 

Place can
Reach into your heart as a writer and take you seriously.
Expressing yourself through poetry can
Sometimes be
Seen as not being a real writer or "too artistic."
Understanding fellow poets giving you critique as well as praise
Reminds you of how much you love poetry and you can 
Except that the written word can be a prosperous future for you.

Leaves A Handiwork

Leaves on the trees in my yard
Even now some are falling hard.
All of them have their own distinct look.
Very often we keep them in a book.
Everyone of them is beautiful and so grand.
Seeing that they were made by God's great hand!

missing you my lover

 
Morning thaws into feverous noon, dusk fluxes and night dimly fades away, Into a lonesome diurnal, nocturnal rhythm all woozy and gray. Softly and silently you begot my heart’s love hope when there was none, Securely you glided into my laxly life when destiny had me indolently undone. Into my life you filled love when my fate on a platter offered me bliss trifling, Niftly you surreptitiously left my antedated heart airless and stifling, Gusts of malevolence vent out with arcane sprite, oh! these esoteric rifling. Your comely face now seems to me an abhorrative visage, Our bonds of love bleed venom from the punctured heart, painful seepage. Urns of sorrow, my eyes grieve tormented, wailing tears toil to turn a new page. Moan for you ever, my throbbing heart and forlorn soul, Youth of my life spent with blood shot eyes akin burning charcoal. Lost in fond love without you beside me, now and hear, Over and over again teeming with your thoughts I shed many a tear. Volcanic emotions erupt, as evoke memories of making scalding love, Ecstatic desires drive me insane, but I live on like a lonesome mourning dove, Reminisce your fond caress….very much…..my love ………..I miss you………….

I Heard an Angel Speak

"I heard an angel speak last night and he said "write"

Hearing this made my heart sing and my soul contrite,
Each time I visit the resting place of so many bones.
Angelic statues look upon me, those of granite stones.
Recalling the words they said to me was so intense.
Dreaming was not a factor, for I was indeed awake.

Angels spoke to me and said write a poem from hence.
Now I pour my soul and spirit into words without forsake.

Angels, the army of God, guard the Heavens above us all.
Nearer to God, we all know they are, answering his call.
Graves are the resting place we visit our loved ones on earth.
Even though we know their souls traveled with loving worth.
Listen in the quietness and your ears will hear them speak.

Seek behind the shadows, be not afraid, and do not be weak.
Prepare to listen to beauty of nature that visits each day.
Every flower and tree holds the power of eternity’s way.
All your saddened heartaches will disappear, upon your listening.
Know the fervency I have found, in Angels eyes glistening.

Treacherous, scandalous jezebel trying to cast her spell, an 
Egregious rascal trying to sink her teeth into my skin 
Mischievous, I can smell her fragrance, sweet  
Pheromones, her sexual desires like poetry  
Tempting my 
Animal urges to do something irredeemable, disagreeable. 
Temptress of forbidden temptations, I am already given the
Invitation, testing me, I will dispel this jezebel but I am 
Overcome, intrigued in mysterious rapture, I
Need to recapture my senses.

changing direction

Where do you go when there's nothing left of yourself to give to love someone who is always changing directions? Leaving you picking up the pieces over and over again. While you wait for them to give you all of their heart. Is it fair that every night you go to bed alone? Crying and Praying for them to be there with you. Holding you in their arms and hearing them say I love you and everything will be ok. I'm here to love and help you. Only to find out the next morning their gone again. leaving you think its time to change direction in your life that you deserve better.  While they never saw it coming to an end.  You did by putting your heart back together again for the last time and getting over them.  For the last time Your changing direction in your own life by taking back control of your heart .  Never letting them know they could have had the best of you. If they would have just realized you needed them to be there for you.

Many may have forgotten to notice the beauty of
Infinite existences except for, in poetry.
Rewind time and recall the emotions behind words.
An epic event, turned dummies to nerds or
Child at heart, allowed to become a child again,
Lackluster - less, shining from within.
Ever stop and say,'oh what a beautiful sight ',
So many miracles go without light.

Abundantly wonderful nirvana to grow and be productive

Orderly according to His likeness and His image stand

Invisible He may seem to be but everywhere one can see
Ten thousand more reasons to thank Him, don't you agree?
Enthroned majestically above He holds our life's' key

Dear, concur with me our God is the greatest artist.

Aaliyah

Age ain't nothing but a number.
Aerial ruby-red
Lithe liana and
Impulsive night-black jaguar,
Young, playful, wild, 
Amusing in chime... 
Hues of metal and blood flood.

Axes make crosses.
Aluminium nonchalant moon
Licking leaves of the purple willows.
I discern a vague amber face
Yelling through winds, smokes and ashes.
Anchors and chains, arms and boats and oars -
Heavy sands hide them all.

Ancient abyss opens wide.
Absolutes of January ask for immediate answers.
Lines of the black flaming eyes -
I still seek for the signs of dead love through the
Years of Siberian snows.
Apples of January -
Heavy are they, hold them tight, hold them high.

Age ain't nothing but a number. 
Arial ruby-red
Lithe liana and
Impulsive night-black jaguar,
Young and playful and wild. 
Are you artless enough in the art of ascending to love?
Here comes hush after rush.

Gardening

Gardening is planting the seed in hope that it will grow and blossom 
All things will blossom with time and sunshine
Roads can get bumpy when it rains but you can weather the storm
Don't let to much water fall from you can it can ruin the roots
Even if you don't mean to you still can neglect you plant
Never give up on your plant even when it looks like it's dying
I will give it plenty of time and attention and I will talk to it too
Need to give it plenty of space when transplanted so as not to anger
Grow with all my heart till it will burst open

The Sundress

Take me to summer of dress that is cool, sensual, and demure.
Having such memories, takes me into a realm where I was immature.
Evenings that awoke me with views of such softness, nothing obscure.


Soft wispy movements that turn all gentlemen’s heads to watch closely,
Undeniably noticing the curves that have inspired many creations,
Now, from out of our past creativity flows from silhouettes seen freely.
Daring but ever so subtle this dress, worn in leisure along in vacations,
Reveling the season it was designed and named after in natural grace.
Each time I see this attire, many emotions flow upon mind and face.
Summer warmth and subtle winds allow this to be worn at any place.
Secures power of sun, for our ladies, each dignifies femininities case.

MISSING YOU MY LOVE

Morning thaws into feverous noon, dusk fluxes and night dimly fades away, Into a lonesome diurnal, nocturnal rhythm all woozy and gray. Softly and silently you begot my heart’s love hope when there was none, Securely you glided into my laxly life when destiny had me indolently undone. Into my life you filled love when my fate on a platter offered me bliss trifling, Niftly you surreptitiously left my antedated heart airless and stifling, Gusts of malevolence vent out with arcane sprite, oh! these esoteric rifling. Your comely face now seems to me an abhorrative visage, Our bonds of love bleed venom from the punctured heart, painful seepage. Urns of sorrow, my eyes grieve tormented, wailing tears toil to turn a new page. Moan for you ever, my throbbing heart and forlorn soul, Youth of my life spent with blood shot eyes akin burning charcoal. Lost in fond love without you beside me, now and hear, Over and over again teeming with your thoughts I shed many a tear.

They Never Knew

The truth of her was never told to many 
She was to be a hidden mystery to even the old
To understand her there will not be any 
For there is a secret in her heart and soul
She came here with a passion
She will not leave till its done
Her hands are blessed with every mission
She will look different to none
They will never know the truth 
I gave her more than they even thought 
She comes from my very roots
With greatness of many sorts
I know her inside out
And I know they will never see
There will be great power in her mouth 
She is Him that was nailed to a tree
They were always blind to her ways
They never thought she was worth
In her is a number of days
That is crucial to this earth
She will go out and seek 
She will bring to Me the lost
Her humble being will be meek
She is the mystery of the Cross
Her wealth is not of the flesh
I wrote her story before she came
She is a remover of stress
On her will be no blame
I gave her more wealth than all your cities
I know her heart indeed
She will take My name to many countries
It is for her that I have Bleed
They prayed to me for the answer
She held me high above
I sent her so they will know forever
It is because of my love
They underestimated her wrongly 
I told her to see them through
I gave her power strongly 
Yet still They Never Knew
She is here with purpose of Mine
She will do it with a great speed
She will show to even the blind 
This is my child with whom I am well Pleased

What Easter Means To Me

When I saw him upon the cross my heart and mind did ache.
How I could allow this to happen, I must do something, I thought.
An Angel came into my soul, saying he would be reborn.
Three days, then he will rise up into heaven, not to forsake.

Easter day will be remembered for the day he rose to be sought.
Angels will rejoice his rise into his father’s kingdom newly born.
Stories of healings, miracles performed; journeys he did make.
Telling of his sacrifice for all humankind, our salvation bought.
Evil finally destroyed as the earthly waters and mountains are torn.
Revelations tells of his ultimate glorious return, for our soul’s sake.

My soul embraced promises the Angels sang and continually taught.
Every hour, minute, I watched my heart sank into painful scorn.
Another Angel came to me, said do not falter his word, or break.
Never forget the love and companionship, all the happiness he brought.
Sincerity and remembrance is what our lord desires with blessings to adorn.

Take these words and sights to the future; tell them it was no mistake.
Our Lord in Heaven, Gods Son, will return; when final battle is fought.

My children are forgiven all sins; listen closely for the sound of Gabriel’s horn.
Every believer with true love, will live forever, there will be no way, for to fake.

A Seeker´s Seeking

A man is sleeping in a bed
Sleeping , when he should be awake
Evolving a body in coldness, when he wakes up
Emotions of a curious mind
Kind thoughts of a distant happiness
Ears stretching to the childrens laughing outside
Rules of eternity struggles with his lonely mind
Sanity´s sanctuary is the longing of his heart
Swimming in oceans of philosofies
Embracing the Hope, when he´s looking at the sky
Enough faith to let the hope grow
Killing old selfpity of the past
Irresistable in his affection on humble hearts
Nagging novice noise is far away
Glad, when he finally found the right ways at last

Life Is Hard

(acrostic) 


Life is hard but a wonderful gift from God 
In your heart you know that 
Follow Jesus and have a better life 
Embrace love and reject hate 
Inside heart let Him come in 
Seek the Lord and make Him part of you 
Hope and Faith will shine through all you do 
Adversity and evil flees with Him 
Rest in Jesus' promises,He's with you 
Desert you,no,that He shall never do.

Just getting by

Ever wonder why the world says your just getting by with life. When your heart is full of love and your life is empty. How do you get a flame of desire started? Even when its not right. Knowing your heart wants someone so badly and your burning with desire to just have their touch. No matter how small. Everyday you sit frozen with fear. Never taking a chance to even see if there's a chance for love to happen. Always listening to the voices inside your head telling you that there's no chance of ever having any kind of connection. When all you have to do is Shut off those voices and take a chance. Walk up and say here I am world. I'm not prefect but I deserve to be loved and cherished. I'm not afraid of getting burned by love. Life is more then just getting by. Life is always standing up for what you believe in and showing that you care about what the future has to offer. Telling the past to go to hell and Your a better person for going though everything and You have learned form your mistakes. Telling the World Your happy being you.

Strong Heart

Sensibility defined by loving emotions,

Thy love blossoms between two souls,

Rewarding both with a red hot hue,

Over the years, the magic begins to fade,

Neither's heart is in the right space,

Growing apart after thy love etiolated,

Hurtful feelings burn in the lover's mindful place,

Emotion enflames them with a life of waste,

Always hurt and stabbed, thy strength of love fades,

Removing their pain with anothers embrace,

The heart is always stronger after love has been displaced.

DO NOT LET HER LOVE AFFECT YOUR LOVE

 

His life is moving, he wants it to rest,
His thoughts are open, his bare breast!

He is alone seated at his desk – his thoughts fly,
He smiles alone to himself as her images flash by,

Then suddenly he turns pale as he hears a cry,
Nobody around believes him, they tell, “it’s a lie.”
He tries to avoid but a cry had filled the air,
Again he remembers his girl-so lively and fair!

Now he found out, his broken heart led that cry,
There was no joy in his life- he wanted to die,
He could not, he was also a son, the poor boy!
But he was brave, not ignorant and not shy,
Yet his heart was groaning in pain, why?

His heart told him a truth, this time not a lie,
It cried, “I love her………..she is my”,
And the poor boy held his neck and wished to die.

The rings of fire- he could see around him,
He sat alone while all were staring at a film.
And now as I watch him staring lifelessly at the ceiling above,
I curse and thank god for giving this feeling called “love.”
My friend I pity you for the tears that came like rain,
But when will you laugh and sing and jump again?
There are many like you who face the same fate,
You are trying to forget her but dwells on your breath.

I tell this for you and all those for your passion,
Let your love be sincere and true  in its action,
She may hate you but she will love you in your imagination,
And if you are happy, remember – thats your destination!

Do not let her fall for you affect your love for her,
And some day she will realize-you were true not an actor,
And if not, yet you didn’t condem, cheat or betray,
You will be called a fighter and for your joy- I pray!

CHANGES

~~~~~~   ^_^   *_*  ~~~~~~


                     " I dreamt, I was a butterfly or was I, a butterfly dreaming . . . "





Born to crawl at the ground nestled with grass and stones
Under-estimated to be just a simple legged-insect
To be at veneer, an engrossed delightful ala will come and appear from my side
Taught to possess allured chromatic colour - enrapturing fragrant pigments
Enchanting being came from within - from nowhere inside
Real captivating metamorphosis took place - wholly changed for the best
Fascinating dreams, daydreams and reality flow with the ticking of the clock
Living - giving its elegant splendid paint for the very last fall of petals in her home
Yelling...shouting - now an entrancing BUTTERFLY dreaming to be a HUMAN OF CHANGE




" Nothing's permanent except CHANGES...Practice makes not perfect but the 
permanence of CHANGES. . . "


                                                                                               ~~~~~  ^_^  *_*  ~~~~~

Clean Up Time

Clear the table
Line the books along the shelves
Everyone join in
Arrange the chairs so none can fall
Naughty children don’t pitch in

Under chairs and under tables check we haven’t missed a toy
Paints and brushes put away

Toys are all picked up for today
I read a story as we wait
Mom’s or Dad’s are on their way
Everyone its time to go…..I hope you had a real fun day

Intermingling with imaginary captains and princesses from

SOULMATE

Since the first time I lay my heart's eyes on you,
Oration of my love story began; we became the main characters
United together in warm, obsessing passion. Energy we create can
Light a city; ahhh.....yes, an energy created by pulsation of our heart-beats.
My mind always thinks about you; every
Atom that makes who you are is like a star in the night sky. As a hobby, sky-gazing
Transformed to gazing in your eyes, to get a glimpse of the stars of
Every character, beauty, and charm that defines you.

A Dream, After Reading Dante's Episode Of Paolo And Francesca

As Hermes once took to his feathers light,
When lulled Argus, baffled, swooned and slept,
So on a Delphic reed, my idle spright
So played, so charmed, so conquered, so bereft
The dragon-world of all its hundred eyes;
And seeing it asleep, so fled away,
Not to pure Ida with its snow-cold skies,
Nor unto Tempe, where Jove grieved a day;
But to that second circle of sad Hell,
Where in the gust, the whirlwind, and the flaw
Of rain and hail-stones, lovers need not tell
Their sorrows. Pale were the sweet lips I saw,
Pale were the lips I kissed, and fair the form
I floated with, about that melancholy storm.

CHANGE
The climate has change
The species have evolved
Change is the word that eludes me
Change is what I want for me

I seek to change my behaviour
I so want to be a tree
A tree that lose leaves
A tree that gives shade
A tree that provide fruits

I need a change 
I want to change for them
Be the change they wants
Be their hero for lifetime

Time pass fast now
Times has come now
The time to make a change
The change for my children

It is a wish my staggering body need
It is the change my lungs seek
The change of new air filled with sweet smell
The change my brain approves
Oh hail my stubborn heart
Please let me change

Let me change for my father’s sake
Let me change for that fragile soul
Make me the hope for all
Make me lead the way for all

Change me!
Show me where to start
Show me ways of being smart
I only see shades of my figure
I see clouds engulfing my small figure

Change me now
I wanna see the light
I want to see it tonight
This is the right time
This is time for bright things

POETRY

Posing a question, a thought, an ideal
Opening eyes to worlds that were clouded;
Emotions and daydreams and feelings made real
Tied up in metrical mazes unbounded.
Remembering moments that symbolize bliss;
Your poetry succeeds if it can do this.

SELF-TALK

(Dedication: For my son Michael Zachary)
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~



Aid your appeal with easy wit;
Welcome the pun that comes to heal;
Air sure reveal in worthwhile fit;
Raise cheery fun to fund goodwill;
Enter each feel with loving bits.


Seize moment's prime to dwell right now;
Embrace all things that happen here;
Love beyond crime what love endows;
Faith ever sings with sanguine cheer.


Trust in your heart to wear firm mind;
Ask to be free to sing and play;
Live love you art with happy finds;
Keep joy you see through night and day.


Sing sacred psalms that inspire heart;
Live your passion in lovely work;
Enjoin and come to know soul parts;
Enjoy fine action in fling and jerk;
Prize feisty sums that fashion art.


Weave sheer magic in path sans hate;
Align your tears with pain that strains;
Live dynamic beyond mere fate;
Keep faith not fear through loss and gain.


Ask for clear quest to shine a light;
Walk to the edge to venture far;
Apply pure zest to guide your sight;
Keep count dear sage of blazing stars;
Endow your best to sparkle flight.

Promises

You promised me 
that you'll love me in away know one else could 
that I'd be your only one 
Promised me 
I;d always be yours no matter what would go down 
You'll stand with me forever 
I told you all my secrets 
I opened my heart to you 
Put aside all you did, the Ly's, the hurt 
forgot it all for you 
I Promised you 
I'd hold you down 
Kept you close to me 
You told me things i dreamed someone could tell me 
Never thought i was enough, You told me to  
"keep your head up"
That you love me 
You saw me in the way i wish they all could see me
All i wanted was to be with you 
You promised me 
That you'd all ways be their 
That you were never far enough not to love me 
and i believed you!! 
Even when you broke my heart and didn't wipe away my tears 
When you put yourself above everyone
i remembered i promised id hold you down and always love you 
and now look who will always be here 
Why, because i promised you 
And unlike you i keep the promises i make make to those i love

Serving order with an aria,
Hailed as a messiah for
Offering free food for thought to the
Penniless, unemployed and homeless artists, potential

Poetry contest

Poetry allows for the soul to fly free,
Opening one’s eyes to capture more then what they see,
EVENTUALLY saturating the core of one’s heart,
Tying together whatever has fallen apart,
Reinventing words with intense INFUSION,
Yearning desires are rekindled with a hint of ILLUSION,
Placing pieces together like a puzzle in your mind,
Accepting one for what they say as your ears become inclined,
Letting go of yesterday becomes INEVITABLE to embrace today,
Awaking emotions in such a powerful way,	
CREATIVITY becomes the potter’s clay,
Enlightenment dismembers any form of disarray.

Take The Walk

Many don’t know were to go
What road to take 
What direction’s to make 
Few find there way
Other’s just go around confused 
Empty with a void 
Leaving the heart without joy 
When the answer’s are so close 
Free for all who ask seek
And knock and are ready to receive 
 
Open your heart to the promise 
Of everlasting life of joy 
For who would give there only son
To die for our sin’s 
So who are we to deny him 
That forgives and washes’ our garments clean


Born again cloth in white pure and true
Baptized in the spirit 
Walking in faith keeping the word 
That feed’s the soul 
Against the arrows of the evil one 


The First step is the hardest 
But he is there to see that we 
don’t fall short of his glory 
Take up the cross don’t’ be lost 

Take the walk of faith

ARTISTIC TALENT

(Dedication: For my niece, Joan Chong)


Art as you see in ideas grand;
Reach for the moon as stars align;
Trust in beauty in your own blend;
Ink your own noon in tints that sign.
See with sure style a certain flair;
Touch a new thrill that fosters feel;
Indulge fond smiles that fronts sure airs;
Charm stakes fine will to touch and heal.


Truth has a say in tale and tact;
Allow your soul to create stuff;
Love comes to stay in art and pact;
Emote one whole that feels enough;
Note inspired play in thoughts that act;
Touch reveals pole as change now puffs.


Joy has a name in glimpse and sight;
Opt to bring cheer in visions spawned;
Allow the same to show fine light;
Now let thought steer grandeur that dawns.


Choose your own say in art and grace;
Hone your fine skills as image sings;
Own line art play as colours trace;
Niche fond goodwill with pictured flings;
Greet each array in time and space.


Hope wears a smile with easy feel;
Urge knows a touch that creates thought;
Reap a bold style that comes to heal;
Live more and much in each new plot;
See art worthwhile that now reveals.

My Darling
I could not stand the thought of your touch to another
I have missed you like the summer misses the rain on the hotest day
My heart has the sadness of lonelyness
I can't confess enough I miss your tenderous kiss
I wait and I wait for the mail man to arrive
Its like the holding of life I can not breathe without your lines
I long for that embrace my dearest you talk of
I love you with all my praying you will return safe
I still see your smile as you left our gate
I will be waiting for your loving return my darling man
Keep my kiss close by seeing my eyes in the starslit skies
Tonight I will lay upon your letter beside my pillow
Just the words and your loving scent on the paper you wrote on
My Darling I must go now but Know I love with all my heart and soul 
Just for you

A time teens sow and experience the manifestation of their great Expectation

Equisetum

Every layer amassed vertically on the previous

Quintessentially abdicated from the next’s cornerstone

Upward from yet another illuminated chlorophyll-filled vascular vessel

Inspiring the growth of the next generation

Seemingly taxed at consecutive intervals

Each layer recedes like roman pilasters.

Tolling delicately to not topple the tower 

Umbilical to existence,

Mother of creation is left on top.

Thanksgiving Day

Today and everyday is worth being thankful.
Having warmth and love given is always thoughtful.
All of us should carry this feeling throughout year.
Not being thankful is just selfish, shows your fear.
Kindness should be showed to all each and everyday.
Sure, it may be tough at first, for your heart to sway.
God gave everyone a mind, heart and soul the same.
Individually we must all prepare and play the game.
Victory shall be the joy and happiness, you bring.
Inventory your heart; let your spirit free to sing.
Never let a sour soul, spoil your delightful song.
God is alive, great, awesome, he is never wrong.

Discover loving essence; make it your quarry.
Allow his honor to grace your existence and story.
You and you alone are the keeper of our Lords glory.

You are a magnet and I am steel

Yesterday became today and then it just went 
Only to realize that all the money was spent
Unrelenting the past shall reveal
As you are a magnet and I am steel.
Regardless of anything my heart still beats
Emotions are created by those I meet
Another day with another chance to set it right
My eyes see the moon as I head into the night.
Always the first to say just what I feel
Going full circle and wondering what is real
No one can see yet the cards shall reveal
Even when i close my eyes my fate isn't sealed
Today you are a magnet and I am steel.
Another day passes the sunset shall conceal
Nothing can change what my heart will feel
Don’t be afraid the new day shall arise
I’m just the one that falls for all I try
Anything goes yet another day goes by
Me by myself I sit and wonder why.
Someone calls out and I return from the dream
Today becomes easy like drifting downstream 
Even I don’t always get it but I should just  know
Eventually love is the key as the gentle summer wind blows
Leave it alone because it’s  just the way it goes.

THE ITALIAN GIRL with AN ENGLISH LOVER (part eight)

"There is no doubt in my mind that you care!
 How could any person question this fact?
 Even if they knew nothing of your acts,
 I could prove that we are a perfect pair.
 Trust me when I say that I want to share
 Any part of my heart that you have packed.
 Let me count the ways your love has been stacked,
 In a way that proves that you will be there.
 Allow me to store you within my heart,
 Next to the place where I keep my passion.
 Go deep within my heart and claim your part,
 Instead of waiting to get your ration.
 Right here and right now this must be the start.
 Love must become this season's new fashion.

LoVe HuRtS

Love could be pure beauty... Love could be a temporary high with an awful hangover...I can't deny that I loved you to the extreme - that changed so suddenly 
Opting out on love affairs, I don't need another heart break...I don't wanna damage my self-esteem again...I don't wanna waste away...fade away, negativity - vanish from my sight for good! 
Vivid images bleed through my cranium achingly and repeats like a broken record, playing out of the blue at the dead of night...it's projecting horror on another level...stop haunting me - there's a demon, chanting curses in my head..giving me a load of dread! I toil in my anguish! Remorseful tragedy taints my heart with blistering blasphemy! 
Elevate me with your awesome Works and Wonders...oh Lord! Why does this burn burn on like a wild fire...my imagination is blazin' aflame & I'm hurting with distasteful shame brewing inside of my woeful, hopeless heart! Things will never be the same again!!

Hang me up like a hanger in the cell-like closet in your bedroom... It feels so cold in this chamber of solitude and mystifying abyss - don't forget me in the clusters of the hangers; I wouldn't mind holding on to your beloved attires/garments with pensive patience...I wait keenly for your return!
Up and away, I float like a rainbow air balloon...I ascend like the airplane, taking a fantastic flight! I'm feeling this terrific, natural, good-vibes-down-my-spine high...I'm a shade of orange and gold! No longer a shade of blue and gray! Do I belong somewhere sacred...somewhere special...somewhere surreal in your heart? Let's make a love oath & promise me you will stay faithful to our vitality-vibrant vow
Risking my life for my loved ones... Love hurts - please fall in love when you feel ready and when you feel mature enough to handle a bittersweet relationship...love may be a box of chocolates at first, but then it can ruin you like a monsoon! Be vigilant and let your heart be in vain at all!! Love hurts especially when someone rejects your affection towards them - it makes me feel rather jaded and distressed - you sink fast and collapse on the ocean floor like the Titanic; my heart breaks like that once triumphant, robust ship 
Thank you for all the miracles you've bestowed upon the Earth and I of course! I give it my best to express my gratefulness towards Your divine, glorious character! Thanks a billion for allowing me to have gifts and talents - I like to show it off with Humility & confidence all the same! 
Sure... Go ahead and call me an insane moron, a dense fool or whatever you wanna call me! Don't make me have hurt feelings or don't insult me too much - in a sensitive guy with an innocent heart crafted by God's healing hands...love felt good at dome point in my life! I was young and free back then, but I took love lightly and I'm a ludicrous boy...a naughty man in love with a crazy, jubilant woman! That's quite odd - I thought love hurts, however, my opinion have been turned down by young couples all around the world (their relationship worked out perfectly) and I haven't looked on the brighter side of love...I was destined to be single and alone for life! I've lost all of my chances & my time was wasted on plastic, envious love! Ugh!

THE ITALIAN GIRL with AN ENGLISH LOVER (part six)

"The way in which you put your hands on me
 Has my heart beating at a rapid pace.
 Each and every time you touch my face,
 I feel as if you are setting me free.
 Those powerful lips are all that I can see,
 And I begin to long for you to place
 Lips and hands on me, in the proper space,
 Insisting whatever will be will be!
 Also, within your embrace is my soul,
 Next to the beating heart that completes it.
 Giving this part of me had been my goal.
 I told you that my love would never quit.
 Right in your embrace is where I feel whole,
 Loving the fact that you are the right fit.

Paint With Fire

Posing flames dance with delight.
Among the pale canvas.
Inspired by the lack of light.
Now not quite flat as Kansas.
Thrashing through the dimming night.

Who can be so uninspired?
In amidst the embers glowing.
To think that nature so conspired.
Hell fire's profound showing.

Free handedly the picture form's.
It wander's cross the frame.
Reminding us of nature's norm's.
Enchanting with it's flame.

The Dance of the Ocean

The ocean seems so relaxing when you hear the wave 
Healing sounds that can clean a soul and save
Even when the waves brings in an unknown 

Dodging the sadness can be shown
And the things become more easy
None will dance with balance so steady
Can a person by the ocean feel free of fright
Embarking conquest with passion that last in the day and night

Out on the beach on the sand we dance on a spot
For we hold our friends and an family a lot

Tricky the waves move with a trance each day
Hardly understandable to what I have to say
Even when the wind pushes the water most

Onto the sand by the ocean cost
Cites that people love to see and use as a passionate source
Even when it the wind blows the ocean waves set a different course
And finely the wave pulls back and forth in a lash
Notes that make music in every ones ear with a splash

A BROKEN HEART

Some times….
People who are near to our heart and lives
Will hurt us in such a way….
We feel that there is no necessary of this life….
And some times…..
They make us feel so happy
That heart wishes to stay close to them…
But once the heart is broken
Cannot be fixed again
So I feel fear that my broken
Heart will be breaked again
And……..
Tooo many small pieces
Cannot be fixed…
And…
If we try to do so..
We may also loose some pieces…….

Amelia

As the sun shines so brightly 
    I am always playing cheerfully 

Makes me realize that I have grown into 
    An energetic personality I can call my own; 

Excited about being close to Mommy & Daddy 
    They're so special! 
        Playing with my sister 
            And even looking for a seashell. 

Listening to my heart and soul 
    When expressing my feelings in art 
         Or whatever I like to do; 

I live in a world of happiness and joy, 
    Of confidence & determination 
        That special glow; 

Always surrounded by the love 
    That I have come to know.

Savior Conductor

Ensembles of 
Venomous thoughts invade
Every 
Reasonable emotion I hold.
Your touch keeps my 
Truth
Hidden. Your kiss keeps these monsters
Inside at bay. There is 
No other way to catch. No other
Guide for my 
Imagination.
No other
Safety net. My
Inner heart, you balance.
Destroying disturbing
Ensembles 
Of cracked instruments playing in
Fortissississimo inside

THE ITALIAN GIRL with AN ENGLISH LOVER (part four)

"Thoughtful is the first word that comes to mind.
 Honorable would be the other word.
 Encouraging would have to be the third
 Illustration that you have left behind.
 There are so many words that I could find,
 And use, to describe you and how you stirred
 Lasting feelings that deserve to be heard.
 I have to thank you for being so kind.
 Always and forever will I love you,
 Never forgetting any of these things,
 Giving you credit for all that you do.
 I love the way that you make my heart sing.
 Repeat those words that make me feel brand new;
 Loving words, upon which my heart still clings.

Broken

WILL TODAY BRING ME LOVE, WILL TOMORROW BRING ME PAIN 
WILL THIS LIFE THAT I LIVE ALWAYS REMAIN THE SAME. 
  

WILL MY PRAYERS BE ANSWERED WITH THE RIGHT AMOUNT OF FAITH 
WILL TODAY'S PROBLEMS BE THE SAME AS YESTERDAYS. 


WILL YOU FORGET I HAVE A LIFE A LIFE THAT INVOLVES YOU 
IF YOU SEE THE COLOR IN MY EYES THEY ALWAYS STAY BLUE. 


IF TOMORROW NEVER COMES THEN I DIED IN MY SLEEP 
AND YOU WILL NEVER KNOW THAT MY HEART WAS TO WEAK 


TO WEAK TO FEEL PAIN, CAUSE PAIN DOES EXIST 
ALL MY LIFE I HAD ONE WISH. 

I WISH WE WERE HAPPY INSIDE A HAPPY HOME 
I WISH AROUND YOU I DIDN'T FEEL ALONE. 

THIS IS A LOVE POEM, ALSO A SUICIDE NOTE 
CAUSE I FELT OUR LIFE NEVER HAD HOPE. 


I TRIED TO KILL MYSELF BUT DIDN'T SUCCEED 
CAUSE I COULDN'T GO WITHOUT SOMETHING I NEED 

THAT SOMETHING WAS FAITH AND I THOUGHT IT WAS HATE 
IT WAS ME THAT LEAD YOU, DOWN THE WRONG WAY 


I NEVER KNEW CAUSE I DIDN'T LISTEN 
YOU NEVER KNEW CAUSE I DIDN'T MENTION 


NOW WE LIVE WITH A LIFE, A LIFE THAT REMAINS OPEN 
IF YOUR HEART ISN'T GLASS THEN IT SHOULDN'T BE BROKEN

Down the Aisle

Holding on tightly- 
open to the dreams, 
pondering produces pain- 
enduring engages entitlement. 

Along the way- walls, 
novels not yet written- 
dying in the corner. 

Calligraphy conserving life- 
holding on dearly, 
a frame for future fragrance- 
neither scars nor wounds- 
grandeur grants greatness, 
especially once hope is found.

TAPESTRY

To thee I sing a dirge,
As I behold the mangled sight,
Pity, I couldn't turn back the hand of clock, or

Reminding me of those far away years,
You came to be by my skilful hands.

how

you thought you knew what's best
so you cut a sore in my chest 
the choice was mine to make 
instead you put my heart through a stake
it's too late to reverse it now
you asked for shame I asked you how?
how could you block my heart from someone already worlds apart?
how can you decide what's best for me 
when I live in another reality
they say that sores will heal with time
but that may not be true for everyone
the sword you pierced my heart with soaked in poison 
only blackens my heart of mine
you asked me how I feel 
I only questioned how this could be real
you wanted my apology
but all you got from me
is a heart black and cold
ripped by you for being bold
and all I'm left with now are fragments of a heart 
and the question how?

Madeleine

Mesmerizingly she captivates hearts, as she paints the world with
Artistic beauty, masterfully molding the
Depths of raw emotion into the reflections of poetic grace
Echoing from the talented touch of her extraordinary heart
Lighting a darkened world with the flaming hope filled
Everlasting blossoms of spring, artistically colouring lives with the
Inspirational magic flowing from her fingertips, a portrayal of mystical meanings so powerful
Never to be forgotten by those so privileged to have the divine blessing of walking 
   alongside her on the
Eternally breathtaking, enchanting path she paints through life

(Written for Madeleine Sieberhagen)

Words cannot describe the priveleged blessing it is to have you as a friend!
You are incredibly special to me!

How Time Flies

Here today yet gone tomorrow
Open your heart and be willing to follow
Why is all I shall need to know
Time will come and then shall go.

I often wonder where I fit
My legs grow tired I have to sit
Eventually I see how it will be
From where I’m seated I clearly see.

Life seems to have a life of its’ own
Inside my heart the answers are shown
Even though there’s so much I still don’t know
Somehow this new life continues to grow.

The purpose of writing

Writing is the latest art of humanity:
Regardless of form or style, creative
Illumination must release mere perception
Teaching must be the first premise of

Grand new world of participative democracy.

Sometimes you can't make it on your own

Sometimes you can’t make it on your own
Open your heart yet you feel so alone
Many things happen that are beyond my reach
Eventually the wave shall crash on the beach.
Today I thought that I could see
 Inside, my heart still beats free
Many times I just can’t do it alone
Eventually someone comes to take me back home
Sometimes you can’t make it on your own.
You feel like the player yet not in the cast
Only with some help can I complete the task
Unfamiliar isn’t easy yet I see I must ask.
Common is the thread that binds it together
Accepting what is seen seems to take forever
No one can see what you envision
 Too many mistakes are due to lack of vision.
My mind is racing but I am too proud
All of a sudden the words are spoken out loud
Knowing all along I may have taken too long
Even the sun has set and is gone.
I don’t always make it from beginning to end
Tomorrows’ problems are right around the bend
Open your eyes and learn how to see
Nothing can keep you from what you must be.
Yesterday becomes but another memory
Open your heart to receive what is free
Unless you are content with everything gone
Relentless is time you must have been wrong
Open you mind it has been way too long.
Winning and losing are but part of the game
Nothing ever seems to remain quite the same.

Angelic Statues

Amidst the shadows of loved ones past, there is something.
Nearer to humankind then we would ever really know.
Great and small works of stone stand watch and quietly sing.
Each one piece of art, a tribute of what heavens bestow,
Light from morning star embraces what the new day will bring.
I have seen the gracious glimmer from above as statues glow.
Carefully they watch, greeting, allowing visitors hearts forego.

Stone is their form, though love and compassion their creation.
Treasure to be found in each different Angel that you will see,
Angels guide, while guarding till the end of times duration.
Trace their feelings, embrace their love, and seek it for thee.
Unknown wonders to many stand quiet, serving salvation.
Everyone can view the power of these in a new found decree.
Sculptures by man, Gods images of faith, they give regeneration.

JOHN CHIZOBA VINCENT CARES

I have emerged from elughu Nkporo to take my place
My life depends on you while yours on me
When the left hand washes the right hand
The right hand in turns washes the left
Have we not but only one world and time
John chizoba Vincent cares about your love
Painted white and green in your snowing heart
Hold not your peace until I become the hero
Until the world recognizes my voice
Then I would write about your love
Though it may seems far, wait
Though it may look difficult, wait
Though the dog might watch our back, I care
Beat the drum louder because I won’t let you down
I would watch over your head brother, and mother you
Sister, I would father you and give you hope
John chizoba Vincent, cares about you mother
My erudite biro can write about you
I remained in the class room but not the perfect teacher
Come with me I will show you what words can do
War of words wars in the faculty of my heart
From my humble heart are good thought for you
My students tested my words and were awarded
 I would water your soul to rest when due
Sound the beat of life and dance with one leg up
I cares about your life and future, mother.
That is my last will long after I live
The birds hadn’t begun to chirp when
I was born because I met them without a song
Though my voice is still young to glow
But my love will overshadow soon
Vincent cares mother, Vincent knows your worth
The forbidden pains of motherhood is not erased in 
My mind, Vincent cares

Having hatred in your heart
Intimate relationships that'll hurt you

Thirst can direct your life into the hands of your enemies........

My heart and eyes

My heart and my eyes are really just one
Yearning to find yet another connection done
Here before me lies a blank page
Evaporating thoughts released from the cage
Always another connection to be making
Returning to give instead of taking
Today I see clearly the life together
And thoughts drift off as light as a feather
Now my heart tells me what was felt
Dropping some cards in the hand I was dealt
Everything seems to have its own special place
You look to the sky and encounter all of space
Even the stars and the moon start to shine
Sunset approaches as the day unwinds

KOSTABI SURREAL

Keep art form crisp, keep shades of grey;
Offer to bare, offer to show;
Sense strokes made brisk, sense lines that sway;
Take wear and tear, take tint and glow;
Art lines propose, art sparks appeal;
Bring profound fare, bring passion's flow;
Indulge fond dose, indulge stark feel.


Surreal form flings, surreal art hurls;
Urge moves the dice, urge mulls the case;
Rich purpose rings, rich motive swirls;
Roaring shades spice, roaring tones trace;
Entice wild pain, entice mad touch;
Angst beyond price, angst between space;
Loiter with gain, loiter with much.


Picture the touch, picture the face;
Look beyond shades, look between tints;
Align bold nudge, align stern pace;
Yield image made, yield textured mint;
Blaze blooming bust, blaze brazen boom;
Open mind floods, open heart knows;
Offer sharp thrust, offer pulse room;
Kinder full blood, kinder prime show.


Ideas and plots, ideas and thoughts;
Do grand surprise, do great display;
Etch surreal thought, etch pregnant lot;
Aim blunt reprise, aim canvas stray;
Sign fragrant spot, sign searing slot!

Monsoon Storms

Morning deprived of fresh visions upon the break
Only the rising sun peers out of darkened wake.
Natures deserted ones stand tall, alone, forsaken,
Seemingly, sagely awaiting, moisture that’s taken,
Overtures of mystical dancers float in sky.
Opaque, grayish, clouds approach seeming to sigh,
Now building up with winds, which feel the cry,

Standing before the glorious power before me now,
Tends to overwhelm but fascinates me as I, bow.
Omnipotent view sends shivers up my spine.
Rendering my mind as well, calming it like wine.
My spirit warms as sounding rain begins to fall.
Such accumulation of mist, these things I saw.

Wire Giraffe

When I made this piece of art 
I realize it was to test my creative skill
Reviewing what I can do with wire part
Even when the part does not stay still

The swerving of wire
Hard to bend the way I wanted
Ended up hurting my hand and setting it on fire

Grinding my teeth to hide my pain that was what I intended
I realize how hard it is to bend things to make a shape
Removing ins and outs that is in consistent
After all the debate in my head I had a headache
For some reason I created an animal shape I felt content
Feelings ran in my mind that I was satisfied with my Art
Even when I felt tired and in dismay i did not part

Gitanjali

Gentle you were, in your smile
Involuntarily shaking limbs, until your
Tiny frame, into my hands, it slipped
Amusing me with gorgeous amusements
Negating in me those moments of meaninglessness
Joyfully, with tiny fingers
Affecting more life into my faltering being
Like the season of spring
Invigorating the shuddering mother earth

Vanished with your birth were
Ills that crippled us for fourteen years
Causing us to sing those songs
That makes God leap and dance!
Overwhelmed by a sudden birth, and
Remembering Tagore, we named you Gitanjali

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...

I saw a shooting star tonight,
i made i wish hoping that everything will be al right,
still wondering if he wants me as i wait,
trying to stay still but all i do is hesitate,
as i held his hand trying not to let go,
i felt that love that only him and i know,
are eyes met as we say goodbye,
hoping that he really wants me and it's not a lie,
when we kissed i felt it was right,
as we held each other e sparks flew in the night,
i sit here hoping this will work out,
trying to think good and not have self-dought,
As we got to know each other e even more,
i figured out he just wanted to use me and make my heart sore,
He said we would be together but he made it into a lie,
when will this endless heart not get hurt and want to die?

Can you remember our hopes and dreams

How her evil has in golfed my world

Taking away our first kiss replaced by tears  

Fiery pits, flames on high

let him live his dreams and you as well.
even though your heart is going through hell,
sing those songs of happyness,
just scream it out,

for the future will come and there he will be,
even though he said he cares
lets just hope he don't give up on thee,
say he will come back no matter what,

Shared Love

Single love by only one will be superficial.
Hearing of infidelity breaks ones heart.
Anyone can love sex and feel it is crucial.
Real love is caring and giving from the start.
Each of us has lusted over another mate.
Dealing with lust over love can be just a state.


Listen to your deep inner heart for true notions.
Open your heart to touching and all senses.
Victory will be yours for all love’s motions.
Experience all when your new love commences.

O xygen draws to his heart as it peaks in poetry
E ndless love dwells in his heart for her
T ime itself speaks of their love, as one para siempre

For my babybear, Paula

Poetry Haunting

I manifest into 
poetry, haunting 
the alphabet like 
a poltergeist.

Words become 
possessed, with 
a flick of my pen.

What comes out 
depends in the 
mood that I'm in.

Elusive

E ncrusted amidst sensation,
L ust, and temptation,
U rged towards frustration,
S uddenly back to elation,
I ntangible desperation, hence
V eneering mystification...
E nticing words of vocation,

                                         Pen with motivation…
                                         Pen with relaxation…

Love and Forgiveness

Listen you can allow hatred and anger to imbed itself into your life.
Only it will grind your heart into a chaotic sword that will rip apart.
Vengeance will eat at your soul developing torment in every way.
Eventually there will be no joy that enters or spreads from your heart.

All things that happen are usually not set out to hurt anyone at all.
No one has that much evil within them to plan for these attacks.
Doom and gloom are things we fear and they could inherit your call.

Forgetting happens with time, or at least lessons as years fade.
Our way of thinking upon each passing day brings either joy or hate.
Realizing this we can learn to forgive others misgivings made.
Greatness is not measured by relentless abhorrence forever.
Individuals make bad judgments, since before the age of times.
“Vengeance is mine said the Lord” not yours to endeavor.
Each of us now has the charge to love and not hate in crimes.
Now better than anytime before we need to learn this straight away.
Each person has the capability to choose the path they have to take.
Serving to bring happiness and love until their last and dieing day.
Securing forgiveness in our mind and heart upon each day, we wake.

Armenian Triumph

Ages have past, but the past never forgotten ever.
Remembering the pain and agony will remain forever.
Men, women, and children destroyed for no cause.
Energy from their souls lives on without pause.
Never forgetting, possibly forgiving in a future time.
Individuals once but now belonging to a horrid crime,
Angels now caress their souls and sing their praise.
Now we must in our hearts a monument raise.

Tears of woe will pass growing triumph from now on.
Realistic dreams of a future without pain will come upon.
Individuals, couples, and all that suffered in the past.
Unanimously we pray that our future will truly cast.
Many everlasting triumphs of love and peace in our land,
Preparing every soul for the glory upon us will stand.
Here and forever with faith and love our souls ever so grand.

Theatre of Dreams

Leading actors, outer casings, all the world’s a stage
Invoking mere sporadic thoughts, floating on brainwaves
Venting anger hanging on the lips of stories told
Envision entertaining masses, breaking legs so old

Yielding to pretentious living, shining star so bright
Owning moments, guest appearing each heavenly night
Usurping and embracing almost everything you see
Re-enacting scenes as you become all you can be

Dying and betraying what defines your inner core
Ridiculing newbies while you search for something more
Exploring other options with a similar result
A satisfying outcome dawns for you and your dear cult
Move the crowd with encores; I’m sure you’ll know just how
Satisfy their need and yours, then exit with a bow

My Poet


My life, oh my life, is graced by
you, who taught and inspired me to look at the

past to construct my future; letting me sail, with you 
on the warm river of your heart that 
each day I learn to ignore rejection. Ah,
this is why I love you!



--
from my heart to y’all, who made me what I am now.

APRIL ELEVENTH NINETEEN EIGHTYEIGHT

Always trying to fit in, where even water is a stranger
Poetry, my sweet remedy
Reading, writting my joy in which to escape
In my own little world I see Paula kissing me
Loving her with such passion, and devotion

Enter fear not my screaming soul
Leave all, let yourself in my shoes
Even the happiest heart will mourn
Vacant are the halld of my heart, for she is a jelous artist
Equally I too wish to hang her art upon my heart
Nevermind the passing of time
Timid is the soul that lives with in
Hear my words, hear my heart speak unto you

Nothing can change his past
Invoke my inner poet and love will speak "Paula"
Never looking back for a path revised is a change in whom you are
Elevating a step higher always having her in mind
Time itself can be held to a pause, as he speaks
Escape into my vision, see not the globe for greean, but for beauty
Erase, delete my past, but a witness can never forget
Night falls into his poetic verses, yet he goes on

Elastic are are ways of seeing his path
Insight, always looking into his future
Generous to his kin
Humble to praise his King
Tone, a voice of an angel, persuasive and smooth
Young and strong, leaping is his scene
Ending all his work in her name
Invisible yet full of color is his passionate imagery
Giving all of his heart he fights to retain his soul mate
Honorable verses for they draw many breaths
Time again paused to his choice, he lives for her

Mesmerized

M anifesting me,
E choes of its beautiful sound,
S eeping under my flesh,
M esmerizing, captivating,
E nrapturing me,
R eflecting my soul’s beauty,
 I swayed as it played,
Z igzag lines I made, as I 
E nergetically moved my body,
D ancing on the charisma of it…Music

Music

Most beautiful thing in the world
Uniqueness in audio form
Synthesized or guitar driven
Intelligent or dance worthy
Cd's, eight tracks, tapes, and now DVDs
Acoustic or piano
Leveling enemies to a common likeness
Love songs or hate anthems
You know you love it 

Enthusiastic but not
Crazy admirer
Love for all types
Even guilty pop pleasures
Connecting with different people
Typically 
Informing others of a message
Crazy about everything music

Greed

The long spiral of life, accepting the burden of greed. Shadows of a drifter coveting the 
morning sun. The warmth of childhood securities, always fearful of the descent, the naming 
itch of want. The loneliness of man's fortune, saddens my heart but still it hungers. Who does 
not desire more of the other? Demons sprinkle the eyes with greed, refusal bring sorrow, the 
tangebell web the dance of desire lies deep in my being, the soul need to escape its fleshly 
prison, haunts my dreams of nightmarish slumbers of death. The minds eye twists the will of 
its master, wettening the lips with lust, need, and want. Greed, the perfumed hips of women 
wickedness, maddens the desire for greed, look but don't touch the playful cousins of greed, 
the voluptuous bodies of the sin brings carries the poison of lust and the money hungry 
needs of wealth summons the heart pounding migraines of greed.

THE LAST DAY

The last day.........
To fulfill
No tears to spill
Be it as it may

When you give all.........
All that you can
But it begins to fall..........
The failure of a good man

To see it through.........
The heart begins to bleed
No end in sight too..........
Can I find..........
The things you need...........
The things you pay no mind

The last day..........
So many things fail
but only fail
blaming others
The final nail..........
The final day

The last day...........
All I have to give..........
To give all I can
The failings of a good man
The words he wanted to say

Small kind things............
crushed underfoot
The hurt it brings
The heart to bleed..............
The small kind things you need

To see it through.........
To the last day...........
They do not see the way
They cannot see........
What is true

The last day.............
Fulfilled.........
The head held high
I did try
Tried to find another way
On the final day
