Death of the Poet Destroyer

~The Untold Fatal Attraction Poem~

Mid-morning she sees the sun ahead
Her death flowed in a messaged bottle
Gazing into her brown eyes upon all open sores,
Her conscience dark and gray a never-ending war!
A giant cyclone of a thousand thoughts swirled around this little girl.
Inflicting away the pain, through the comfort of others pen
The way she twisted and twisted life’s perception was out of her control
Inside she knew the glass slipper was never hers to show off
 
She is baring nothing but a tainted pen, walking throughout eternity’s sand
A prosecutor of misdeeds, accomplishing what, without knowing the way
Departing from her fractured self, she begins to slip into a righteous form,
Twirling her twilight's pen like a baton, spinning it to one final stand
 
She awakens in a dream, where her sadness does not allow the light to reform
Her body is weak and pale against the birth of her undying sun
Staring down into the deepness of every-bodies abyss
Inside all souls is where she felt lighter, than the retarded sun gives
A crimson sky follows her just to reveal her diminished soul,
A life of shunning out the city glow will always dwell deep inside her
Sleeping under society as one, insulting the taste of innocent blood
Forgetting the vengeance, in a dimension where the pen is mightier than the sword
 
How did she let it come to this?
In one feeling she fell in love with the spirit of the living rhyme 
Watching from a cave, with a diabolical look
Refusing to grasp the self - nature and kill off the destroyer's will
A price beyond this enigmatic world, craving to be just like them
Condemning her meaning to a blasphemy of white butterflies
Destroying her poetic meaning that was destined to dance a tangle of endless rage
In love with the essence of her deceased will
She clings on to the dimness and brilliance at the same time
All corpses lost beyond the girl in question,
Sympathetic in a bizarre language, she mutters out sweetness
Her heart mended, recognizing all the adoration and poetic addiction
Exchanging the real terror, fixated by the life force of her poetic destruction
Giving birth to a new revelation
Now she will never deceive her love for the making of true art,
Not wanting to belong in this wretched world with her destroying criteria,
Her soul sails looking for a new era where love will no longer generate
As she loathes the love and decides not to destroy this generation with hate

At last, longing this one day with the angel of death
With a closing teardrop, one last thought
My death will not be the end; only the ascension~

THIS IS WHY I CAME

They came to the orphanage, I wasn't thinking too much;
Until they looked into my eyes, And I felt their touch.

An incredible connection, This kind of love I'd never seen;
Things were happening so fast, What does all this mean?

Adopted into the family, Thoughts of despair fled;
My Father's arm around me, I'll never forget what he said:

You have a hope and a future, You don't have to be afraid;
I've planned out everything, Preparing for this day.
Here's your new clothes, I'm giving you my name;
You belong to my family, Son, This is why I came!

One Sunday in church, I wasn't thinking too much;
Until I heard the preacher say, Everyone needs a crutch.

At first it didn't make sense, To think I was broken and lame;
My sins had separated me, I was a spiritual orphan in shame.

I bowed my head right then, Trusted Christ in my heart;
I wanted to belong to Jesus, And have a new start.

Adopted into the family, Thoughts of despair fled;
My Father's arm around me, I'll never forget what he said:

You have a hope and a future, You don't have to be afraid;
I've planned out everything, Preparing for this day.
Here's your new cloths, I'm giving you my name;
You belong to my family, Son; This is why I came!

60 years have now passed, I wasn't thinking too much;
Felt a strange pain in my chest, Grabbed hold of the hutch.

The ambulance came, They started working on me;
I was losing the fight, but I was so ready to be free.

Adopted into the family, Thoughts of despair fled;
My Father's arm around me, I'll never forget what he said:

You have a hope and a future, You don't have to be afraid;
I've planned out everything, Preparing for this day.
Here's your new cloths, I'm giving you my name;
You belong to my family, Son, This is why I came!

The Book Of Her Body

I lift you up, delicately
like a bouquet of flames in pink patient fever,
romantically, I rove your surface with fingertips that tingle,
the texture of your treated cover tempts an impatient lover,
I read your Title, Her World, Her War
subtitle, Surviving Sorrow & Love,
your emblem, embossed in opal
a quill spun across a heart spelling your soul,

I spread you open with both hands
my grip holding the breadth of your body
a scent of sensuous ink unfurles into my inquisitive senses
raising you into my fascinated face
smelling the cleavage of your binding
sailing my lips down the center of your special secret
having your silky ribbons root around my fingers,
breathing, in warm curiosity on your exotic fibers,

Loving me as I hold you in wonder,
as I finger your pages with fawning pursuit of pleasure,
speedily you whisper my name with no refrain
as my moist voice recites
your poetry of paradise and pressure points,
I venture deeper into your voluptuous volume
feeling sensations of starlight I do consume,
in your tome of thick passion I find a home,

I like to read you in the suspense of night
searching your love lines,  tasting your grape vines,
touching your emotions, embracing your sweet seductions,
you get into my nerves like electric sugar
illuminated by your poems of ardor and prose of candor,
intrigued by the penmanship of a Princess, curvaceous and calculating,
I turn to the Introduction, to see a photo of the great Authoress
a face pretty in courage, a smile of beautiful strategy
your body of work legendary,
I kiss you because I must -

The Stone

The Tale below was carved one night,
Upon the Stone, by candlelight
...most won’t believe, but some just might
.........most won’t believe, but some just might



.                         Preface

Well James made Beth his lovely bride
(And angels smiled, though teary eyed)
...their bodies bound, their spirits tied
.........their bodies bound, their spirits tied

Upon her hand, a shimmer shone,
As bright as blood, a ruby Stone 
...and brighter still, as love had grown
.........and brighter still, as love had grown

Soon James was sent to man a sail
So Beth removed her wedding veil
...her eyes were bright, her face was pale
.........her eyes were bright, her face was pale

“Well, I’ll be here when you return”
Said Beth to James, who kissed in turn
...a kiss that made her body burn
.........a kiss that made her body burn



.                         BETH’S TALE

1.              The Dream
One night, within a dream deformed,
The cawing of a Crow informed
“...a Ship was stripped where winter stormed
.........a Ship was stripped where winter stormed

Midst winds and waves the thunder boomed
The Ship of Death was surely doomed
...the sea engulfed, the sea entombed
.........the sea engulfed, the sea entombed

Your James... denied by Davy Jones!
His spirit gone, his flesh and bones
...are resting now amongst the Stones
.........are resting now amongst the Stones”



2.               The Quest

Awoken by the ebon Wight
And beckoned by the baneful bight
...I left before the morning light
.........I left before the morning light

Throughout the realm I rode a roan
Until, in time, I reached the Stone
...where shades and dreams in darkness groan 
.........where shades and dreams in darkness groan 

While skipping up and down the sky
A missing moonbeam mocked my eye
...enough to make a Swallow cry
.........enough to make a Swallow cry

For someone stole a star or two
And something else that fate withdrew –
...my jewel of joy, my James Bijou   
.........my jewel of joy, my James Bijou

The shadows of the evening swelled
Where demons of the dusk had dwelled
...and in the far, a vesper knelled
.........and in the far, a vesper knelled

The Stone, beneath the sky, stood cold –
Between the runes, a vapour strolled
...a cloak of fleecy fog consoled
.........a cloak of fleecy fog consoled

A Raven on a branch, enthroned,
Her wings waved once, a wail intoned
...beyond the bay, a banshee moaned
.........beyond the bay, a banshee moaned

I lay beside the Stone, his bride
I lay beside the Stone and cried
...but were it I, instead, that died
.........but were it I, instead, that died

The rainbow of the moon fell dim
A midnight Swan soon ceased to swim
...as if to hide all hint of him
.........as if to hide all hint of him

Between the willows in the swale
There sang a Bird, a Nightingale
...which left me faint and feeling frail
.........which left me faint and feeling frail



3.              Contact

I felt him breathe within a breeze
Responding to my anguished pleas
...and leaves blew by abandoned trees
.........and leaves blew by abandoned trees

“I miss you too, my darling Beth”
Re-echoed from the Ship of Death
...the future buried in a breath
.........the future buried in a breath
	
The Stone lit up a ruby sheen
And clouds were kindled crystalline
...with consequences, unforeseen
.........with consequences, unforeseen

Above, the wretched Raven soared
To where the Ship of Death lay moored
...beneath, the icy ocean roared
.........beneath, the icy ocean roared



4.               Release

I’m joined with James beneath the Stone,
Though to the Ship my spirit’s flown,
...for nevermore to be alone
.........for nevermore to be alone



.                         Epilogue

That night the wayward winds were weird 
The Ship of Death had disappeared
...coyotes called and mortals feared
.........coyotes called and mortals feared

At dusk, the craven shadows crawled
At dawn, the winds of mourning called
...upon the Stone two names were scrawled
.........upon the Stone two names were scrawled

The Raven sits, with wings outspread,
Atop the Stone which shades the dead
...it sometimes shimmers ruby red
.........it sometimes shimmers ruby red



.                         Epitaph

Between the sounds, where silence seeps,
Their love lives on and never sleeps
...and yet, the weeping willow weeps
.........and yet, the weeping willow weeps

BASTARD

"All Children Are Beautiful"

His heart of white deep, shallow wells, yet beautiful
He smirks a grin, with an ego that won't let me in' -he's beautiful
Bastard, of beauty, running ashes without a name
A face with no claim, a young man pounding from shame 
What is his sin, he's beautiful!
I want to breathe from his ashes, swim through his veins
I want him to come inside my light, like a good dame

I sing and tell a tale, A Bastard through the night
His eyes, I waged, I was young and poor, I was saved
Lying down, in the arms of my white knight
My hair, he caressed, he came in my light
The furnace burned, the night was fast becoming trite
A lover, he did it well, then went back to his wife
A moment so golden, the ages live, his son is born

Another Bastard brought into this world

Heat Source Hunger

Wonder not
if my thoughts are thrilled and twisted
daily and deeply by the albums of your ways,
I succumb severely to the impulse of imminent interplay
so dumb with joy, grateful for the fusion of our fevers,
I've never let you leave my mind,
you haven't finished eating your portion of my heart,
there is so much more for you, still in my chest, on my eyes,

I am your rare happiness,
that bare beast of a woman's best distress,
trigger your storm sirens with a single drop of Goodbye,
serve you with the most sensational sadness,
replenish your youth with an admiration that won't die,
knowing that I am not a makeshift man, nor a loyalty within a lie,
that I'll punish your pulse with peppered pleasure
because I can, because I must,
pull your hair just to hear those breaths beg for big flares,
treat the smooth and sweet lascerations of love's lament
butterfly cut into the surface of a girl's search for sincerity,
we get intoxicated on performance of personality,
buzzed beautifully from believing in the addiction of adoration's affliction,

We know we can handle one another's hurt
as warriors bleed hard because they sell themselves the sacrafice,
that we can process history with humor by breaking the shame of blame,
synthesize epiphany with sympathy to nourish symphonies of Divinity
we realize that intensity is the regal implement of our tournament, 

I like it when you tell me the tough truths,
that you want to be loved for more than one reason,
that being respected in segments isn't enough,
that he will never be me,
that words can outlast the disappointment of distance,
that the world overwhelms you when you most expect,
that sometimes you'd rather be a heart attack
before being a pretty song or a favorite memory,
I understand your need for absolute affection, absolute attention,
lets allow our love to be confusing, dazzling, on the verge of villainy, 
it isn't steady as a sleeping heart beat
or ready for celebration like a " gee wiz " graduation,
it is our Love, and its undefinably volatile and lovely,

Your cosmos gives a question that feeds one answer,
that love is ours, safe in the arms Armageddon, 
I remember the ember of our future
spazing on the hearth of fresh earth,
don't ever miss me Babe, just keep lovin me -

J.A.B.

Bloom Not, Wolfsbane

Bloom not, cruel wolfsbane
In this forward spirit of mine
Let the moon dim and wane
For love has diseased my kind 

The girl was luscious in the wake
Rising at break of dawn
If only she knew I was a mistake
Before we made the bond

I grew fond of her everyday
And night gave me loathe and dread
My heart was weak, I couldn’t send her away
But fed in her desires instead

I kissed her in the forest of green
I had forgotten what I am
I gazed into those eyes, so keen!
A smooth and gentle lamb

 
One day I stopped to think a bit
My stomach wrenched and twirled
Through love I had lost my sense and wit
To a pitiful village girl!

Avoiding her best I could
I hid from beauty’s caresses
But again she found me in the wood
And so grew the obsession

But so grew the moon
And the waning was abstaining
Good night, wonders of the noon
With memories remaining

Alone I wandered in the cold
Knowing it was coming
The sky grew dark, the sun was sold
Behind the madness blooming 

Transforming! Changing!
My mind went all a blur
Rage deforming! Madness deranging!
I couldn’t think of her…  

The time was gone!
The night had come!
I thought I was alone
But then I saw her standing there
Pale and stiff as stone

I woke up that dawn sitting there
On the forest floor
And there lay she all bloodied and bare
The lamb that I adore!

The wounds I found were like a gift
I know they were from my girl
I’m glad she fought her will to live
As I blindly devoured her

An honorable lamb with bloodied hooves
She’ll never leave my vision
Sacrificed for ravenous wolves  
And no cry for jurisdiction 

 Bloom not cruel wolfsbane
In this forward spirit of mine
Let the moon dim and wane
For love has diseased my kind

Lost Love - Gary Fields

Loss Lost Love

by~ GARY FIELDS

Why my love left?
I soon forget the reason's why
All that I remember
Is that she left such
An empty space
An empty trace
So many memories
Which can not be erased
And I die just a little inside
And time mean's nothing to me'
Fore you mean so much to me
              - And -
Then ever so slightly
I wish for quiet subtle change
             --------
And I don't know since when
But time just set's end on end
And smoke appears below
Which can choke a friend
A friend in need
Certainly not you love
And once again, ever so slightly
I wish for quiet suttle change
              --------
It has been three weeks (03) now
And things' are all in a clammer'
Thing's just seem to set end on end
And nothing seem's to matter
An I make a vowel for thee
In a time that is lost for- ever
             -------
O'h, how I wish to belong
             -------

by~ Poet Destroyer

I can see the pain!
I came to you no longer.
Looking for answers, 
I cried till I could no more..

I shared'
I stared' 
At the empty space hiding in my heart,
I knew then that day was the end.
Thoughts ran like rivers,
flowing a stream down my face.
You picked the pieces up as I walked away.
With no more to open and say.
                       ~~~~~
When holding wasn't holding to me no more,
You opened up your heart, in hopes I could feel.

We cried into the night, 
until the early morn.
We scolded each other's pain,
searching and seeking each others heart.

As time drew, second begun to fade.
I saw our lovers nest fading, 
as the night grew thick.

The moment had arrived, 
why did we say goodbye?
                      ~~~~~
Now we sit alone,
reminiscing the past that vaporized into thin air. 
An empty trace'
An empty space'
                      ~~~~~
Oh! How I wish to belong!

This Song is for my Mother

This song is for my mother
Let her hear me cry
I couldn’t bring myself to write it
‘Til this darkened day arrived
A song about old promises 
Made so long ago
Created and cremated
Ashes of the words I spoke

Long separated by the miles
Distanced from her golden smiles
Memory of a mother
Shared my dreams and really cared

Long separated by the miles
Distanced from her golden smiles
Mama…
I know I wasn’t there……

For you

Would have placed 
A magic carpet 
‘neath your weak and shaky legs

Would have raised
A strong west wind
Let you breathe with ease again

Would have bribed 
God’s venal angels
Come and soothe your endless pain

Would have vanquished
All the demons
And bring peace to you again

Be the child
I never knew
In a land
We won’t grow old

Be the light
I always loved
Warmed my dark 
And lonely soul

Be the girl
Playing games
In a world 
The sun won’t set

Be the laughter
Calms my heart
I never will forget
I won’t forget, won’t forget

This song is for my mother
Let her hear me cry
Couldn’t bring myself to write it
‘Til this darkened day arrived
Song about old promises 
Made so long ago
Created….cremated
Ashes of the words I spoke

I broke my promises, oh mama
Now you’ve gone away 
I’m broken
Drowning in the pain each day

I’m  drowning…drowning...drowning…drowning

This song is for my mother
Let her hear me…….

Love Can Smile

Just breathe with me, its okay
our affection can live beyond pain and distance,
just breathe with me when you need a good kiss,
just breathe with me when there is struggle to be stoked,
just bleed with me when nothing else matters,
just smile with me when star light touches your face
let your heartbeat dance with me across time and space...its okay

DANCE AMONG THE FLOWERS

Dance among the flowers
Let's have a party and a tea
Dreaming of the future, and
How I think that things should be
Life should be an adventure
A Prince should take me to the Ball
The wind always fills my sails
When I'm with him, gonna have it all

I dream out loud to make it clear
This little girl has no fear

Growing up is not easy
So much is not what it seems
No time to smell the roses
Or to think of childhood dreams
Life just becomes survival
My Prince was really a pauper too
My ship never left the harbor 
Happy days are all too few

My dreams long gone, nothing near
Grown up girl.. So many tears

Hide behind the surface
So you think that I am strong
Inside I'm falling to pieces
How could everything go wrong
Life can make you bitter
A shell of what you could be
Drowning out in the ocean
So far out that none can see

Prayed for a miracle, a new song
That a true Prince would come along

Met you the next morning
Your humor made me smile
The way you looked at me
I hoped you'd stay for awhile
You came a little closer
Then you gently took my hand
Words can't describe it all
Lost dreams were being fanned

You were my miracle, you were my song
All of those childhood dreams, They were inside all along

Dance among the flowers
Let's have a party and a tea
Dreaming of the future, and
How I think that things should be
Life should be an adventure
A Prince should take me to the Ball
The wind always fills my sails
When I'm with him, gonna have it all

I dream out loud to make it clear
This little girl has no fear

You were my miracle, you were my song
All of those childhood dreams,
They were inside all along


*This is the story of a little girl growing up with amazing dreams, only to be devastated by the harsh realities of life.  Then by chance, in her adult life,  she meets someone that restores her belief in dreams she thought were long gone.

Rebel Girl

She doesn't believe in quiet love
wasn't born to bleed shyly,
couldn't care about the cost of conquest,

Too beautiful to be bitter, and too young to be cynical,
a cerebral seducer, a critical killer of caution,
too clever to be a casualty of competition,
the antithesis of a quiter
a warrior woman first,
the woman for whom I thirst,

When the battles are long
with the night swallowing safety
and your armor heavy
come to me with body ready,
be naked in my handsome hands
which grip your fatigued feet as if they are my clay of choosing,
sit into me in a bath of luxurious warmth, chamomile lavender calm,
Rebel Girl, happy and hugged with your back against my caring chest,
trusting my rubbing, loving my touching,
your lips moving in silent approval,

The war will return for us
testing our bruised wings of heart,
but tonight we defend this castle of loyal love
sheltered from storm and suffering  -

WHEN I LOVE THEE

I LOVE THEE I am no voluptuous beauty nor do I live a life of purity I can only say: I love wholeheartedly with all I am so truthfully I keep my heart open though it gets hurt so often I avoid to be irate as I know love changes the heart rate.. Guys tried to coo and woo, they say words as for "only you" Yet, hard to believe it is true as I see some untrue I give chances as my heart marks with tact entrances I learned from various instances looking man in romances In places where rules impede, two persons who wants to bid Not of money but of affection, in them must be determination I love thee not of what you have… Not even of who you are but to how you are to me… If I love you, don't tell me much what to do… As me, myself will show you, I am that real and true.. Yes, I am liked by many but tell you what: I don't like this honey nor am I proud of it in anyway One is enough to make me stay Stand with me through it all, I give my best not to fall My name your sweetest call echoing in every wall.. Hold me firm yet dear; allow me to move closely We'll make it anyhow, treading smoothly on flows... We are strong, aren't we? No one moving alone Together we'll face phases in tune, though there will dunes.. © OLIVE ELOISA D.

One Day if I Could Spend The Night

One day, perhaps if I could spend the night, 
I would stack your hearth with firewood 
so we could sit together on your couch 
you, your feet tucked under you, 
your head against my chest, 
while I held you close and breathed
that faint and lovely fragrance of your hair,
and we could dine on pizza and red wine, 
in the softly glowing firelight. 
One day, perhaps, if I could spend the night. 

One day, perhaps if I could spend the night, 
there would be no haste, 
no urgency in either of our lives, 
and we could have another glass of wine, 
speaking soberly of matters sombre, 
if we felt that way inclined. 
Or, we would have that other glass of wine 
and laugh at matters impolite, 
one day, perhaps, if I could spend the night. 

One day, perhaps if I could spend the night, 
when we were ready we would go to bed 
and kiss and make unhurried love. 
Or, equally unhurried, we would not. 
And we would listen to the wind and rain 
then kiss and make unhurried love again. 
Or, equally unhurried, we would not. 
And we would sleep, egg and spoon together, 
with each of us at peace. 
And everything in both our worlds, 
would be just right. 
One day, 
perhaps, 
if I could spend the night.

Red Sweat

Your silence,
a stillness of alluring patience
seductive in it's resilience,
suspicious magnificence, 
unmatched beauty demanding vigilance
making this man rowdy and restless for your finesse,
distressed by this drama of love's test,

You're the only woman scratching this chest
with passion's raging arrest, nails of sharp zest,
the supreme Queen keeping me raw and hard, my only quest,
I'm confessing you are the best, the most luxuriant caress, my unhesitant request,

I want every feeling you're capable of conceiving Babe,
knowing and revering your eclectic emotions, your unspoken demands,
burning for your paradon and kiss, you will always know I am love in your hands
share with me the fuel of fervent fire, gems be our eyes, together, golden pulse we've made -

Once Willows Wept Not

'Tis now known why the Willow weeps, 
a tragedy of love, its memory keeps.
For once a young man and young maid, 
on tender grass, beneath branches lay.
Though pledged by birth to another, 
from clans they hid, to be together.
Thus, the gentle Willow was their choice, 
meeting beneath, till love they could voice.
The Willow held these secret lovers dear, 
so would lower its boughs, when they drew near.
Thus tucked away in the Willow's womb, 
could lay as one, yet this love was doomed.
For jealousy lurked within the pines, 
spying young lovers thus entwined,
behind Willow's curtain of slender limbs, 
He swore the maiden, would yet be his.
Thus, it came to pass one day, 
as young maid softly made her way,
to their Willow, deep within the glen, 
espied the branches did already bend.
Timidly, as she did draw near, 
soft sound of sorrow fell upon her ears.
Parting Willow's branches to look within, 
a dampness did touch upon her skin.
The Willow was shedding sap laden tears, 
for the young man, in death, was near.
'Twas an arrow that had been used, 
a potent poison, the tip infused.
The maiden, now blind with grieving mist, 
pulled out the arrow, held it, in clenched fist.
Whilst cradled in love's arms, did he draw last breath. 
Then, young maid, plunged the arrow, into her breast.
And so it is, that this story is told,
as the Willow's grief would not be consoled.
For unable to stop what had befell,
the young lovers, it had hid so well.
With will broken, as lovers lay dead,
the Willow, its branches, never again spread.
And because it is the memory it keeps,
it is to this day, that the Willow weeps.

Finding my Valentine

In hopes,
there is thousand wish,
In desires,
there is million will,
In time,
those could pass by,
how can I find my Valentine?

For years,
searching the Mister Perfect,
For years,
finding the Mrs.Perfect,
and ages,
should we aim for Goddess or God?
how can I find my Valentine?

However,
we forgetting the reality,
that someone do behold us in their eyes and dreams,
but how could we missed it?
how can I find my Valentine?

Still, 
we believe,
in February for the cupid shoots,
and aiming the figures of our dream,
how can I find my Valentine?

Truly,
the Valentine is there,
if you keep going hundred steps to the front,
without looking hundred steps at the back,
and saying good bye to the fragile emotions,
you will found your Valentine,
right in front of your eyes.

BEYOND THE BLUE

There's a love that touches heaven
it's way beyond the blue
It travels across the ocean
it brings my soul to you
From these sandy beaches
a fiery passion within my heart
And when true love gets to you
it's going to touch every part

Oh, this is the great adventure
there's no quenching this flame
I'm bursting with excitement
at just the mention of your name
So I'm taking a dreamer's journey
going to sail across this sea
Nothing here gonna hold me back
Beyond the blue, just you and me

There's a love that's so compelling
it's beautiful and bold
It's far beyond the horizon
it's end is still untold
Allows me see your sparking eyes
smell the fragrance in your hair
When you're still a million miles
Girl, that's a love with no compare

Oh, this is the great adventure
there's no quenching this flame
I'm bursting with excitement
at just the mention of your name
So I'm taking a dreamer's journey
going to sail across this sea
Nothing here gonna hold me back
Beyond the blue, just you and me

ANNABEL LEE

Sweet island girl now in Heaven
The angels separated you from me
You only lived to love and be loved
My one and only Annabel Lee

Death had no power to conquer
Bright eyes made darkness fade
In your sepulcher by the ocean
Until my death every night I laid

Surely now that I'm in Heaven
No more need to dream of you
For just around the next corner
My Annabel Lee will come in view

But the jealousy of winged seraphs
Was even higher in this place
Confronted by such perfect love
Made it impossible for us to face

But a deal was brokered in Heaven
The two of us sent back to Earth
As unknown strangers, separated
And both starting at our birth

In our life we must find each other
Fall in love again or we'd go to Hell
But if discovery and magic happened
Forever in Heaven with a story to tell

For many, many years I've wondered
Drawn to seek a girl by the sea
Is it possible tonight that I met you
Could you be my Annabel Lee?

*A sequel to Edger Allen Poe's "Annabel Lee" poem.  I pray in style and substance I do not embarrass myself or this poet master!

Star Scream

I want you to feed me my only fear,
to make a ritual of the ruddy rain I hear
deluge my dreams with Love's broken mirror,
our inspiration fragmented into faithless drear,
to deliver the division of two hearts once near
on a cutting board of Venu's neurotic nightmare,
take me to where yearning is taunted by stoic stare
to the edges of erotic emotion wounded from passion threadbare,
lead me to fear's chasm split warm and wide on a Goddes's tongue of despair,
I need that soul spasm hyperextending the phantasm of my boyish beliefs unfair,

If I could fall in love with you again
a star hunter I'd be, feigning capture in your solar reign
equiped with erogenous eon, violating your violet virtue from within,
I would be your fuel of fury and flirtation, speedily skipping across a galaxy dim,
an unstoppable windfall of cosmic conquest bursting from our indefatigable union,

If I could see you one more time in truth
you'd be a Queen, lean like love keen, sexy as sabotage with no proof,
intuiting when to kiss, and when to kill, dressed to thrill in vermillion fox,
a King me be, knowing how to war, and how to water the woman that gives me shocks,
would throw roses and lava into a world desperate for heros gone mad on Creativity's roof,

I don't know how Love says goodbye,
I don't know how it sounds, how it moves
or know when the Death Dance begins or ends,
how deeply does Love get buried in the pits of private agony,
how will I remember the anniversary of our Dia de Muertos,
will you paint your face like a sugar skull and grin from misery made merry,
a grave robber I will be, rubbing fragrant memory on the lips of our love gone by,
feeding you the fear you've taught me -

J.A.B.

Unexpected events

My watch is broken, I can not wait for you to get here
The sun is heating,(I cannot believe) today, we're finally meeting.
I'm not quite sure how I'm gonna act or what I'm gonna say
But of one thing I'm sure, when you'll be in front of me, you'll take my breath away.


While I'm waiting, my mind is flying away
From the moment you'll get here, to the first move you'll make.
I just wish, this day to be perfect
I hope I'm ready for any unexpected events.


It's getting late and you're nowhere to be found
I'm getting all kinds of emotions, but is nothing I can do about..
The park is empty, looks like the rain is gonna arrive
I guess I should be going too, nothing makes me stay around.


Maybe you got stuck in traffic or you've just changed your mind,
Either way, I better go now, maybe we'll get to meet some other time..
And now my battery is dying, I have such a lucky day,
I don't think this day could get any better,
           >>no 'eff!n' way!!<<


Where should I go now? to the hotel or to a pub?
I'll get me something to drink before Imma call it a nite.
I don't find my card key, guess I'm losing my mind..
Huh?!
 Who the 'eff' are you 'my friend'?
 Why do you have to honk so loud?


    you: Hey!!!
    me: Gosh, you scared me!
    you: Where are you going? don't we have a date?
    me: Hey, you're the one that got here late.
    you: Yeah, I'm sorry. look, I've been running all the way...
    me: Cool. I'm glad you came.
           I'm starving. where you gonna take me?
    you: well, since our picnic is ruined, thanks to the coming rain.. 
           lemme take you to my favorite restaurant..
    me: sounds great. OK.


While in the car, you've turned on the radio
And the silliest song was playing in the air
Smiling, you looked at me and started dancing
Gosh, you're amazing. (that's what I said)


We've got to the restaurant
It's getting pretty hot
No sign of the rain now
Guess she just changed her mind.


When I stepped inside
My favorite song was playing .. so loud
And once you've heard it, you took my hand in yours and smiled
you: Hey, this is our song since now!!


Since then I got this feeling, this awesome feeling inside
I'm with the right person and the nite has just begun
You're full of surprises, beautiful and kind
For me you are so special, I'll roll my dice tonight.


Next thing I know, we were back in the car
The music was playing loud, you were driving too far
The last stop we've made, was at the hotel I'm staying
You grabbed me in your arms and .. and then's when it started ... raining.


The weather gets colder, your hand is on my shoulder,
I ask you if you want to come and wait inside.
The fireplace is on, your clothes are on the stove
I bring you comfy clothes, while you're in the shower.


The rain is falling from the sky, the night is deep, looks black and white
I pour you a glass of wine while getting closer.
The electricity goes off, all of a sudden
We're in the dark, the music stops - I lit (up) a candle.


Looks like the rain has stopped now (or for the moment)
I pour you another glass of wine..
I touch your hand, you're grabbing mine
And pull me closer.


The last thing I remember, you were playing through my hair
I felt your (warm) breath down on my neck and I've kissed your shoulder
Slowly, you laid me down, on the floor, whispering something in my ear
Your fingers were walking down my spine, I've closed my eyes.. that's when we've kissed.


We've spent the night together, sleeping in each other arms
I was your blanket, you were my pillow - the dawn was coming fast.
I woke up and.. watching you sleeping
You found me smiling when you've opened your eyes.


Things went so fast - time was flying by
Only four days, until we say goodbye.
All the sand from the beach, the pictures framed in our minds
The scrambled eggs in the mornings, (all those) kisses (stolen) through the night.


While I'm counting the seconds, my mind is flying away
From the moment we've met, to the last thing you'll say.
I just wish, this day to last forever
I hope our story will never have an end.


In the airport, while waiting for our planes to come
Our silly love song was playing one more time
And once again, you took my hand in yours and smiled
That's when you've asked me, if I want to be ... your wife.

A message from Emilly

A message from Emilly
By Angelo Casiano


A message from above to those of you I love.
I love you more than you’ll ever know,
Even more now that I’m gone.
And my love for you will grow and grow,
Like the chorus to a song.
I had to leave much sooner than
 I thought, I must admit.
But you know mom, until I’m done,
 I’m never gonna quit. 
I left behind some parts of me,
 I have so much to give.
Because of you I’m strong enough,
 to help some others live.
So Daddy when you think of me,
While you watch the Phillies play. 
I’ll be sitting next to you. I’ll be with you every day.
 You’ve given me the best of you.
And now I’m giving back.
I will love you for eternity. No matter were I’m at.

There will be someone

One day,

There will be someone that will accept
you as bad as you are,
your imperfection,
eat your leftover food and drinks,

There will be someone that will 
remember you in their prayer,
fight for you,
change you to be the better person,
admire you for the rest of your life,
proud of you,
loves you until the end of the world,

There will be someone that willing to 
stay by your side in your thin and thick situation,
become the parent for your children,

There will be someone that wipes out all your past pains,

Someday,
I promise you,
Those day will come,

Do believe.

WITHOUT YOU

Without you
I'm a shell of a man
A lonely drifter
Who has no plan
Without you
Just bone and skin
Expressionless face
Replaced my grin
Without you

Without you
Nobody's home
The fire's gone out
Heart turned to stone
Without you
No up and down
What's right or wrong
I'm falling down
Without you

So I'm longing tonight
Wishing you were here
Down on my knees
Shaking.. full of fear
I'm calling out to God
Praying you might hear
Girl, I'd give anything
If you'd only come near

Without you
I'm a castle in the sand
The tide is coming in
I'm too weak to stand
Without you
I've lost my love song
Just meaningless days
All hope is gone
Without you

So I'm longing tonight
Wishing you were here
Down on my knees
Shaking.. full of fear
I'm calling out to God
Praying you might hear
Girl, I'd give anything
If you'd only come near

And just one chance is all I need
Unzipped heart, my soul's plead

Oh, I'm longing tonight
Wishing you were here
Down on my knees
Shaking.. full of fear
I'm calling out to God
Praying you might hear
Girl, I'd give anything
If you'd only come near

Mistress Fire

You are beautiful, like fire in the night,
warming me with no boundry
heating me with severity
burning me right,
encircling me with love danger delight,
rattling my manhood's erection
lapping through circulation
engulfing my might,

How could I be in love
with the wind, earth or water
when I have you, my Mistress of Fire,
Enchantress of my blood bud, of my dark dove,
a flamed feathered rub
you lick around my head of history
using red and gold strokes to paint mystery
supernatural seductress of bonfire therapy, I delve,

I stoke you repeatedly with my masculine trunk,
you spray sparks like a star in oval orgasm,
catching you with my soul's hot prism
we give our lust divine spunk,
price for thee, my heart's eternity you've drunk,
You, a woman rediscovering love of song
I, exploring rose ritual in your dawn,
Muse and Poet, minx and hunk  -

Angels and Outlaws

Come and sit here by the fire
Watch the flickering firelight
Let me touch your lips with mine
Will you keep me warm tonight

I've been here reminiscing
Just feeling kind of sad
Wondering why angels love outlaws 
And all the times we had

We've been through Hell together
Feeling the pleasure and the pain
Stood side by side against the world
In the sunshine and the rain

Outlaws live their lives on the edge
Their castles built with sand
Why angels fall in love with them
It's hard to understand

So while we're sitting by this fire
And thinking of all the times you cried
This outlaw loves his angel
I want you forever by my side.

Lost Love

If only you could see the tears
In the world you left behind
You fill my days, my nights, my dreams
You’re all that’s on my mind
Your laugh I’ll never hear again
Your smile I’ll never see
Memories now are all I have
Since loneliness found me
Time was never on your side
Your short life had to end
Now I'm left in pain without
My love and my best friend
The sadness, the emptiness
The pain I have to face
Will never leave my life
For you’re a loss I can’t replace
Even though the rain will fall
And the sun will still shine on
My life will just exist
Because my whole world now is gone
You are an Angel high above now
Watching over me
But someday I know once again
Together we will be
For when my time on earth is done
You’ll come and take my hand
And guide us to eternal love
Together in God's land..

Mom.. I think I might be homosexual..
CALM~DOWN !.. I just said THINK !..
It's not I fear
My multi~studded ear ,
Or that I look stunning dressed in pink .
I wont complain ,
As I sip champagne
Of my blemish~free youthful looks ,
Or how I enjoy the finer things in life ;
Like fine art , or poetry books .
 NO !.. I never joined the Girl~Guides .
 You're being silly...patronizingly .
I dont like damp
But I do love camp....
'Specially in Summer , by the sea .
I like being with Brad and Christopher ;
Young Lloyd is such a dear
And Mourice is such  a sweet lad ;
Yes.. I'll always keep them near .
But , deep inside my inner soul
When push will come to shove .
For my own part ,
Who has my heart ,
Yes !.. It's Annie I really love .
But one thing that still bothers me ,
And will , until my dying day ....
Is , when on that morn....
Yes!.. When I was born..
WHY ! !.. Did you name me  GAY ??...

My Ultra Babe -

I need your ultra desperation
your ultra conflagration of love making exhilaration,
I want your ultra shout and pout
give me your slap attack
the amber of your abuse, the saffron of your emotions,
I crave the playful plenitude of your ultra uppidy attitude,
you let me experience hyperventilation at your disappearance
then inflation of euphoria in my Heart's utopia by your reappearance,

I want to know your ultra sadness
that song you share with the twilight of despair,
your ultra madness, your vortex of female complex,
I desire your hot and haunted psychology
your genius of ultra ingenuity, the pulp of your passion,
sometimes you love me most when you hurt me
a pathology of love cut sympathy that I can handle best,
earning the ultra soft surface of your pillowed chest
where I can rest the weight of iron soul, and slumber at your behest,

I want the whip of your hips and the sip of your lips, 
I want the pleasure plethora of your ultra vulva
to access the pagoda of your sexual yoga
to concoct in you the froth of organic soda,

I want your Gospels and Revelations
the Path and the Wrath, your cross of ultra conquest
the morning of your ultimate ascendance
the midnight of your ravishing bite
the bounty of your breast and the burn of your brimstone
give me the lyric of your ultra breath,
your ultra love keeps me alive!

YOU'RE UNFAITHFUL

Don 't walk out at that door 
I promise not to hurt you anymore 
I didn't mean to be a murderer 
All I want is to be your lover.


Let 's stay here inside our home 
When once love and lust we're shown 
Let 's do love in this king bed 
With petals of roses spread .


I thought you love my company 
But you 're loving me unfaithfully 
You 're keeping girls aside from me 
Seeing you with other gals happy. 


Now you 're happily seeing me dying 
That you got my flesh and everything 
This silly love is complicated 
I got you first underestimated.


Save this heart from anger and pain 
love me true, no more love game 
Baby don 't leave me like this

To Dream Of You

My lady come to me this night
In dreams so soft and sweet
Cross into my abode,my home
So then we two may meet

Now then you'd speak to me of love
You'd talk with words divine
I would take heed to all you spoke
I'd thank the Lord you're mine

To dream of you my lovely lass
Is what I want my dear
To dream of you my lovely lass
I'd hold you oh so near

These words I send they come so free
Of all my hearts desire
To think that you might come to me
Has set my heart on fire

Such dreams are all I have for now
Of you and me embraced
To sleep perchance to dream of love
To see you face to face

To dream of you my lovely lass

Music Take Me Back

When I'm blue and need something to make me smile
I can turn on my forty fives and listen for a while
Jimmy Gilmer sang about a Sugar Shack
Holding hands, walking down that railroad track
Then I let the music take me back.

Take me back to a time when love was new
Take me back to a time when skies were blue
When we could catch that falling star
Make love in the back seat of my car
Music, oh sweet music, take me back

Doo-wop memories touched my soul
Mixed with the early days of rock and roll
I close my eyes and through the haze
I see sunshine and better days
Music take me back to those times again.

There was Bandstand on TV in black and white
Radio on 'til you fell asleep at night
There were dances at the school
And swimming in the community pool
Music take me back, let me remember when.

Did we believe those days would forever last
Were things so much better in the past
I dream of days when a movie
Meant kissing in the balcony
Music take me back, let my heart roam.

It seems like a thousand years ago
We found true love and watched it grow
I know this is where my heart belongs
When I listen to those songs
Music take me back, please take me home.

Heart Broken Eternally

A sorrow sets in deep in the soul,
 To love and not be loved back,
 Is aa shattering agony deep within the soul spreading, 
 A poison that clenches at the soul,
 Forming a pact to never love again.
 But to let bitter hate control every day of your life.

Love Story Gone Wild

when beauty met the beast
she was a cutie, he was a beast
she thought that she'd speak to him at least
and at least find out what made 
a beast, a beast

as the beast looked at her 
he wondered; what a feast
but the way she spoke to him
was gentle and curiosity increased

he found her some what pleasant
and laid his aggression aside
for now he'd grown accustom
and hoped she would abide

as time past he looked at her
as he never did before
tender conversations
brought his knees to the floor

she'd become his weakness
his task forever more
he liked to hear her voice
and see her walk through the door

on holidays there were presents
on birthdays a feast
each special day that brought her presence
was a holy day to say the least

now i am wholly human 
and i can tell you well
that jealousy fits us humans
and beast very well

one look at competition
can take us all to hell
we can never avoid perdition
when one other than God
we our souls sell

and from God comes the testing
old men and prophets tell
the beast asked God for patience
and God knows how to teach it well

the next time the beast see's beauty
there is a ring on her hand
he didn't care to mention it
but that was one thing he couldn't stand

worn down he ask her
what the ring meant on her hand
slowly she confided, it meant she'd
marry another man

the beast now was furious
he did not understand
that all these years confiding
he was suppose to be the man

what then would become of her
his conscious did demand
all the years he spent with her
were coming to an end 

yet love had one more service
his heart would command
tell the maid he loved her
and ask her for her hand

let all the powers of wickedness 
and goodness take their stand
upon this maids answer
i'll bravely take my chance

To My "Layla"

Where is that woman
I so loved so long ago?
And for reasons unfathomed
I love as much still

Beauty beyond compare
to me
Simple in thought
But complex in love

Years of remorse
have run their course
They have worn me down
I admit, I deserve no more
For as i guess oft happens
A fool will hurt himself

Where is she now? I wonder
Does she sleep alone like me?
Or next to someone
She wishes is elsewhere

Or, if blessed with luck-
Entwined in the arms
Of one she so loves

Oh, if it could be me
Foolish me...
Unable to endure
A love so intense
I felt I was losing
my identity
I found this powerful
love, this passion,
almost an obsession
Too scary to deal with

So I walked-
and 35 years later
so much
would love to
retrace my steps...
leading to her...

At least to know
how her life has unfolded
Not to rekindle
Love's embers
I'm not the same
as I was then

Worn down by years
Of abuse and pain
Yet every day
I think of her again

The apple of my eye
Layla incarnate

Once bodies entwined
Sweetest hours of my life

I'm a fool
So much a fool
Regret is my daily meal
Fools deserve no more 

For many years gone by,
And many years to come
I will regret...
The acts of this fool."

Running Tide

Knee deep in surf
The water clung to her
Changing silk gown
To wrinkled shiny  skin
Never had I envied ocean water so
But then t'was I who'd let her go
Drowning in green eyes
With fear of clinging ties
Holding me back

EXPRESSIONS OF AFFECTION

Wrapping your loving arms around
somebody whom you love with passion....
is an expression of affection,
and no one expects a reward!

Only God gives love freely...
to demonstrate how intense is kindness;
and we ought to give it kindly,
not shying away from mindfulness! 

Giving more than you have to someone
who needs comforting words...
is surely an expression of affection,
and deeper understanding without recompense!

Our struggles may cause us to worry,
leaving behind unpleasant reminders...
that we never learn from errors
and continue to act improperly?

Smiling widely and honestly
is the truest expression of affection,
welcomed as the most genuine intention;
why can't we all love sincerely?

This life is none than a short jeourney,
fulfilling what's called destiny;
lives are glorified by their deeds,
but also destroyed by  insidious influences!           

Coming to the rescue of your closest friends,
who seem troubled by hardships or pain,
helps them find hope when they only had tears;
stand by them with that expression of affection!

Life

Life is a many things
Sometimes life is a dark tunnel,
But every tunnel has a light at the end
I will be your lantern to guide the way
Cling to me and I will keep you from the darkness
Life is a giant battle.
I will be your shield and spear 
Your spear to pierce through the horrible people
Who want to harm you, 
Your shield to protect you
From the battles you cannot win your self 
life is many things my dear 
But I am here,
For you to use, to cherish, and love.
Life is many things my dear. 
But you are not alone.
I am here.

FINALLY HOME

We'll climb over paper mountains
Cross over distant seas
We'll give away our fortune
We will get down on our knees
We'll be analyzed and scrutinized 
Receive training from the best
But until at last you're in our arms
We will never rest
We will never rest

And...
We're dreaming of the first time 
We will see your face
Such a sacred moment
That'll never be erased
All the sacrifice worth it
None of it a waste
'Cause when this journey's over
You'll be in this place
You'll be home
Finally home!

Today we got our travel approval
We're packing up our bags
Been through highlands and valleys
We've overcome a hundred snags
Done things we didn't think we could do 
We feel so very blessed
But until at last you're in our arms
We will never rest
We will never rest

And...
We're dreaming of the first time 
We will see your face
Such a sacred moment
That'll never be erased
All the sacrifice worth it
None of it a waste
'Cause when this journey's over
You'll be in this place
You'll be home
Finally home!

INSIDE YOUR EYES

You stumble over words
feeling insecure
So much you want to say
but still unsure
You worry what I think
tears trickle down your cheek
want to unzip your heart
but silent.. cannot speak

Look into my eyes
and fear will fly away
I'll see inside your eyes
all you want to say
My finger on your lips
don't say a word
Here in my embrace
every thought is heard

Girl, I love you so
ya make me wanna shout
But we can take it slow
ya never need to doubt
Yeah, I am into you
climb mountains, sail seas
Until our kingdom comes
and you're united with me

Look into my eyes
and fear will fly away
I'll see inside your eyes
all you want to say
My finger on your lips
don't say a word
Here in my embrace
every thought is heard

Look into my eyes
and fear will fly away
I'll see inside your eyes
all you want to say
My finger on your lips
don't say a word
Here in my embrace
every thought is heard

He was only 17

He crushed his heart. On hopes flutteringly light as butterfly wings. On dreams foolishly bright as silver bells. On dreams seemingly fine and looking good. He broke his heart. On tales of lust hewn from his faint heart. He banked his faith on the words of a woman. He lost his sight searching into darkness. He thought it wise to love once and never again. He thought he had found his only love. His only hope. He was only 17

Penetrating Portals

Your eyes arrive on me
like the whips of passion's urgency
wide with white smite encasing eons inflamed in irises,
I feel the tight temperature of they're heated hue, my lust crises rises,
brown autumn burning into ravenous red, seduction's takeover fast overhead,
you've got an angel in one eye, a devil in the other, teammates, temptation led
trouble in your stare and glory in your glare, there's a gamble on your lips
I get an adrenaline hit, I see the misfit, magic in those lids
beauty and banditry bound to fantasy,
hips and slits favoring me,
brash brows and lapping lashes
portals pivoting on our cunning chances,
flawless in flirt, a merciless miracle of attraction,
there's somethin lawless in you woman
got me comin for your lovin -

Is It Worth It

Love can seem so happy and so wonderful
But it can hurt and take away from life too
You make me so happy and make me feel so special
But then you turn around and make me feel like ****
love can turn you into a whole new person
But you could change into to something great or something no one wants
Love seems so wonderful at first 
But spending my days not knowing if you want me or even care for me is agonizing 
Sometimes i feel like your lying to me but if i say that then you'll get mad again
Your such a loose cannon, ready to burst with rage and tears
Love is so temperamental 
so can you tell me....... 
Is It Worth It?

TRUE LOVE WINS

A man could never love a woman more 
And to see her hurting rocks him to the core
But through the pain she finds her smile 
Oh, the beauty of her face
Like a warm, intimate embrace 
Charming him is just her style
She is his life
His amazing grace

So she leans in to kiss him tonight 
She's holding all their memories 
Of what a life its been
True love wins!

They could never explain the feelings held inside
Of their forever love that has no goodbyes
So, even in night they find the day
In difficulty they don't despair
No matter what comes together they'll share 
This is simply Jim and Betty's way
This is their life.. This is their prayer

So he leans in to kiss her tonight 
He's holding all their memories 
Of what a life its been
True love wins!

This crazy, messed up world 
Is growing more absurd
But he still knows her every thought 
Without a spoken word

One glance at him is all it takes 
Like love is beginning all again 
The story of their lives.. 
True Love Wins!

*this is a poem about parents love for each other through all the years and obstacles of life.

The Dragon and the Rose

Outside of civil man’s well tended garden,
A field of briars willfully encroached,
Threatening the peaceful flowers without pardon.
Oh these gardeners fought hard as the briars approached.

“You don’t belong here, you’re not good enough!”
“You are snarled with iniquity and with thorns.”
“You live a life so very harsh and rough…”
“What good can you bring?” they said with deep seated scorn.

And the briar replied that hot summer day,
“Deep within these unforgiving boughs
Lives a flower who doesn’t have much to say
Except a story concerning what you espouse.”

“You see there lives a dragon scorned just over the way,
Who tossed opportunity and harbingers to the wind,
Because life is glorious and he loves to play…
Carefree and cavalier is how his days were spent.”

“He playfully trampled gardens carefully tended,
By pious gardeners without wings who would never fly,
Until he happened upon a flower wonderfully scented,
Crimson in color, the flower reflected beauty in his eye,”

“Eagerly he reached forward to make it his own,
But this glorious flower was protected by thorns,
And gave the dragon a prick to change his tone,
And it was in that prick that true love was born.”

“Now the dragon is older and has spent his days,
Watching over this rose, the love of his life,
Learning about beauty and awe inspiring ways.
His world now protected by thorn and briar.”

“He has discovered great beauty and learned much,
And no longer does the dragon destroy with fire.”
“But should you gardeners even dare to touch
A single branch or bough in this tangled briar…”

“You will face both the Dragon and the Rose,
Who with great love now protect each other,
From pious gardeners who would have them go,
Because neither can be kept on a tether.”

“So snip your lilies and pluck your weeds,
Make your lives as perfect as they can be,
For in this harsh briar we continue to watch love grow,
That of a magnificent Dragon and the beautiful Rose.”

Romeo and Juliet

When last they kissed, and summer’s lease
fell brief and sweet, and winter's chill would steal the heart away...

Sweet coral days, turned blight to rust, 
and Shakespeare's words,
will wring despair from what will never be.

Behold, your eyes that weep,
and empty arms will flail, for
young lovers swept away on wings so frail...
 
No other love could ever grieve so well. 
Shall hence, will come a cry, to shatter starry skies
with tragedy to tell

O’ she of flaxen hair, fair cheeks so pale,
His love was as a fever, longing still. 
His sorrow greater than the darkest night
Too cruel to bear, delusion played unfair
Despair, beyond all words could shout
Disquiet of the heart cries out
To death, that calls, from 'yond the distant stars.

Sweet love so rare, a thing beyond compare. 
Where whence their love, once like the lilac full
The blossom fragrant,  so sweet as whippoorwill
Ere' slumber's chain has bound them now.
Thy song has waned, the garland dead
upon the blade, upon the sword, asleep
The swollen heart with anguish weeps…forever is a love to keep.

Never Told You

Tired of talking 
‘bout weather
Other trivial things

Tired of talking 
‘bout food
The price of tangerines

You may outlive
This aging man
Before I go
Please understand

Never told you how 
I love you 
When I held you
In the dark

Never told you how
I love you
I was never
Very smart

I never told you how
I love you
When I kissed your 
Baby face

Never told you how
I love you 
And I pray it’s 
Not too late

I would  tell you, 
“That’s what men do…manly men don’t say,  ‘I love you’”
That was my alibi
But what men do should be corrected
What men do can’t be accepted 
If it makes your woman cry

Tired of talking 
‘bout scandals
Rumors of the day

Tired of talking 
‘bout old mistakes
Who deserves the blame?

The Winter of our lives
Is drawing near
Let’s change it to Spring
From year to year

Now I’m telling you 
I love you
Though the words are coming late

I’m telling you
I love you
And it feels so good to say

I’ll love you in the morning         
Love you through the night
I will love you through the tears
And all the tragedies of life

I’ll stay with you forever
Love you every day
Love you,  love you, love you
It feels so good to say

Love you, love you, love you, baby

Feels so good to say…..

Love

Poem of heartbreak

Here I am, laying on my bed
Silently crying while I read
About the things I left unsaid
And all my tears being shed

Did you know, you broke my heart
When you left, when we were apart
But the things that you told me
Right before you said you'd flea

All I have left is the memory
Of your last words, said in glory
"I think we need a break"
And so now I'm left awake

Here I am, laying on my bed
My depression being fed
By my own record player
Only adding sadness, layer after layer

Your last words, are those on repeat
That's what I wish to delete
The image of you running off
Just thinking you were tough

The thought that's destroying my mind
Nor confirmed or denied
"Did I do something wrong"
My friends told me I was strong

I have managed to smile everyday
Even though I see the world in grey
I miss you badly
Pretending to be happy, sadly

I can't see you clearly in photos
My emptiness grows
If you were here,I could've touched you
But then again, was our love ever true

So is it wrong for me to want a kiss
On the lips that I dearly miss
Not just from anyone
Just the one who left and run

A Poem About Nothing but Love

A Poem About Nothing but Love By: Tyner Twine "I edited a few parts from my original poem. As tribute to my first love's requiem. Nevertheless, this simple soul song is the same, Written all for love and not for fame. A poem of love I wrote on hot summer day, remembering the love that has, for so long, faded away." Would someone care to explain Why people write poems in a way That adorns with jewels something so plain That expresses emotions beyond the insane I lift my quill and dwelt on the thought, And realized the reflections I made and forgot... There I lift my pen THEN PAUSED and reflected: How should I begin to write, About lads and gals with love at first sight? Though I have tried as hard as I might, To close my eyes from love's delight, He won me over without a fight, Now all I see is love's pure light. I wondered... Now I shall write: Have I become some kind of fool Who let Love ruin my poems and rules? Who let Nostalgia come and play With distant Beloved's memories on a working day? Have I been foolish every night, To think his arms are holding me tight, To wish that he'll come home to stay, That he'll make love to me every night and day I think these thoughts and was appalled, How | felt too warm and oh, so galled In thinking that these thoughts might stay, and be my ruin at the end of the day. Love, oh love, is a cruel thing for fools if I might say, Though it is delightful it has a price to pay. Fool, fool, fool! With love as her tool... I am. Beguiled and ruined. Oh ~ why can't they just write about trees? Or how honey flows and comes from bees? Why can't they just write about the Sky? See the clouds and the mist and the birds that fly? Why can't they just write about life? How calves are born and how they die? How flowers bloom with the light of the moon, How the sun rose up and set too soon? Oh, a foolish poet's heart of clay, Be molded with the warmth of fate's faint sway! For life changed drastically above, As the fool that I am Writes a poem about nothing but love.

Seen with love

They lay down in awe and fear,
Of what their love was bringing near.
They gazed into each other’s eyes
And so did rhapsodise.

They lay down to gaze into
the eyes and soul and heart so true.
They gazed until,when overcome,
They were united into one.

Their souls and bodies were conjoined,
And thus their hearts were well entwined;
As honeysuckle on the walls,
In joy’s sweet arbours does grow tall.

Their loving lips and eyes and hands
Gave pause to time’s soft flowing sands;
And while they touched and gazed so long,
The birds sang out in glorious songs.

The eyes are mirrors to the soul,
and love will make us grow more whole.
Gaze lovingly on humankind..
And hold care in your mind.

The Accolade

 Fighting mid the strong and bold,
His eye and blade were keen;
Marching like a thund'ring storm
On foes of Faith, his queen.

Now returned in victory
Upon his mighty bay,
Set he off to Langley Tow'r
Her summons to obey.

"John the Squire," the footman called,
And held the oaken door;
Faith, it seemed, had gleaming eyes
Like never once before.

"John! 'tis good to see thee hale,"
The queen exclaimed, and rose:
Tales have sped to Langley's gates
Of many broken bows."

"God has saved me whole and well,
By prayers, I ween, of thee;
Tell me please, my lady Queen
What service I may be."

Saying thus, the squire bowed
And doffed his burnished helm;
Struck in awe by Faith, his love,
The queen of Arthur's realm.

"Gilbert saith," rehearsed the queen,
"That deeds of thee are done
Greater yet than those of Wat 
Or even Henry's son."

Tears bedecked her youthful face,
And glistened in the light;
John the Squire, as she had hoped,
Had done her favour right.

"Nay!" the humble squire cried,
"This word is not so true!
How could I, the meanest squire,
Perform the deeds they do?"

"Hush!" It was a firm command;
"I'll hear these lies no more; 
Kneel before me, Squire John,
A knight shall leave the door."

Down before the queen he knelt,
He pledged his knighthood true;
Swore her ev'ry small command
With cheerful heart to do.

From his side she drew his sword,
She struck the accolade;
"Thus the greatest knight," she said,
"Is from a squire made."

From her hand the sword did fall,
It clashed upon a stone:
"John, if battle claimed thy life,
How could I be alone?"

"God has prospered all my ways;
My Queen, I praythee, cease!
Soon these wars shall claim our foes,
And Britain be in peace."

Faith remained there by her throne,
With light upon her hair;
Not one maid of Camelot
Was even half so fair.

"God be with thee evermore,"
She bravely said at last;
"Guard and keep thee from the foe
Until the very last."

John the Knight farewell did bid,
And swiftly rode away:
When the wars were hammered out,
He'd be a king in May.

Thunder Queen

The storm that is you thunders
slow and brilliant in my heart,
spliting my beliefs into bliss and blunders
tossing the limbs of my love from finished to start,

The hail sows no hate
temperatures taste extreme,
your fast weather pummels my pride's fate
the howl and moan stiffens my body's fleshy slate
with a new font spelling lust in capital sweat and gleam
as the conceit in me enjoys the torrent of your sorrow's date,

You hump me with a dying wish
placing me inside you, gently, romantically, undeniably selfish,
I fall in love with you again for the umpteenth time
and your face never grows old
shows no cold
disappears not in tragedy's confine,
overlapping my overview of life, hot and hellish
the art that is you pounces into view, the rumble I relish,

Wanting me to know what you deserve
breathing into me the smoke of your burning love,
I become love wrecked, quaking from the sting you serve
preserving everything your spirit spits and sings from above -

The Third Option

when one must make a decision, 
you think over it carefully.
when this decision effects only you, 
it can be easy. 
but when it effects some one else, 
it becomes difficult and confusing. 
when you must make a decision for yourself and another, 
your judgement can become...... blurred.
one choice is good for you,
and the other better for the other.
what if whats good for you will ruin the other,
and whats good for the other will ruin you.
should one do for themselves,
be happy while the other suffers.
or suffer while the other is happy.
the answer is simple.......
if you love them, 
then you will sacrifice anything for them....
and if they love you,
then there is a third option,
an option in which no one suffers.
this is true because love is a separate choice all together.
no one should suffer.
and both should be happy. 
so i think when there is love,
there is no decision,
there is only whats right.

Barbie

Barbie
from Loch
March 5, 1990

I fell in love in a biker bar
	with a girl in chocolate hair.
It swept around her like a smoky fire
	and woke up the beast in my lair.

Her bright eyes twinkled like brilliant stars
	at the end of the moonless road--
they called to me like a siren song
	to lay down my heavy load.

Tall she was like a square rigged ship
	like a mast shrouded in clouds; 
and she could dance like a foamy wave,
	making Neptune cry out loud.

But the path of a ship is a bubble
	and suddenly she was gone--
her chocolate hair and vanilla neck
	are moments in my sad song.

This siren's memory seizes me
	like cinnamon schnapps and a grin
which warm the body from the inside out
	and settle a smile on your chin.

Her dancing hair drove my clouds away
	and opened an azure sky;
and all I asked was a tall, thin ship
	and two stars to steer me by.

Among all the women I've danced with
	none are remembered so fair
as a girl who walked like a tall ship,
	and had waves of chocolate hair.

Ancient Treasure

Ancient treasure, here before you,
Feel it tremble, lightly so;
Steal this treasure, waiting for you,
Precious tales of love and woe.

Here's my heart, you may unseal it
With a smile, and with a tear;
Take my soul, but don't reveal it,
Keep its secrets hidden here.

Wandering

I wandered the vastness of the universe
Just to met you here
I considered many life times to glimpse
Your adorable essence
I explored the magical land of Atlantis
Even the technological Lemuria
I lived a couple of thousand of years in Sumeria
And learned to spoke magical words
I lived with the hundreds of lambs in Syria
To learn how to live with them in the barren land
I was in Mongolia to learn how to cook food
And created my own menu
I was with the Emperor and Empress of Japan
To be one of their counsels
I was once a daughter of a peasant in Italy
Learned to live with a single meal a day
I learned to fly an airplane in France
And leave my profession for marriage
I craved to wrote songs in Canada
But still longed for someone I knew
I was with you in the battle ground of ancient Egypt
I learned how to kill and to be killed then
I tried to discover more about myself
Lived inside a cave of mountainous Indonesia
I entered the great temple of India
To learn how to be the master of my surroundings
But died when a mysterious epidemic spread
I created more thoughts and realized inside a cell in Chile
And killed myself for an escape to my wrong ordeals
I existed again to work on my rippled karma
I visited the temples of Tibet to find peace
I discovered how to heal myself
And every person I tormented
I roamed around the great City of Brazil
But to no avail I never saw someone like you
I remembered why I am here then
I still chased you in further ground of Incas
But nothing happened
You still left me for another person
I continued to soar within this land
And was killed while counting miles across the sea of England
I explored the lessons of to be abandoned
As I always waited for this love
I was catapulted again in the battle fields of the Philippines
Where I was killed in an ambush with my three best friends
Yet my desire never materialized
I returned here being wary you was out of life again
I decided to get back to the golden planet
But escaped before the capsule like craft flown
While have had a thought in mind
That I am expected you to came
And now finally we bumped each other again
This will be the last life I shall chose to see you
Since I planned long before this moment
I will be home where I am from
And be one with my sparks.

I remember the day,
You came into my life,
Making my heart feel a warmth,
That I've never felt before,Your beauty is unlike any other,
For it is like a beautiful painting,
It shins all the time,During the rain or shine,

Your wonderful personality,
Just everything about you,
Makes a great gift to give,
And you are giving it to me,
Which I'm proud to have,
It all in my life,
For I will charish you always,
And try never to hurt you,
Giving you all that you need in return,
Celebratinh our love for each other,
All the days of our lives,Charishing all of our precious moments,
We share through the years,
Holding you tightly in my heart,
For you are my love of my life,
That I never want to loose,
And today is one special day,
That is for you,
My special Valentine.

Love Passionately

Love Passionately
To love passionately is to love freely without expectations. To love with all your heart deeply, holding nothing back giving more than one thought possible. This love excites more than any aphrodisiac known to mankind. 
To love passionately one experience’s moments of shear excitement at the thought of their true love. Loving without ever thinking of oneself, frees the mind and body to love without ever holding back. This love is deeper and has no regrets; as you never think about what if, because you just love!
To love passionately gives you such pleasure you can hardly think or breathe at times; as this love and passion just comes back to you. Loving without thought of yourself brings happiness, inner peace, and fulfillment to you along with all the passion you so freely give.

Stone by Stone

I have a wall you cannot see
Because it's deep inside of me.
It blocks my heart on every side.
And helps emotions there to hide.
You can't reach in,
You can't reach out,
You wonder what it's all about.

The wall I built that you can't see
Results from insecurity.
Each time my tender heart was hurt
The scars grew worse and worse.
So stone by stone,
I built a wall,
That's so thick it will not fall.

Please understand that it's not you-
Continue trying to break through.
I want so much to show myself
And love from you will really help.
So bit by bit,
Chip at my wall,
Till stone by stone it starts to fall.

I know the process will be slow-
It's never easy to let go.
Of hurts and failures long ingrained,
Upon one's heart from years of pain.
I'm so afraid,
To let you in,
I know I might get hurt again.

I try so hard to break the wall,
But seem to get nowhere at all.
For stone upon each stone I've stacked,
And left between them not a crack.
The only way,
To make it fall,
Is imperfections in the wall.

I did the best I could to build
A perfect wall, but there are still
A few small flaws, which are key
Please use each flaw,
To use a crack,
To knock a stone off the stack.

For just as stone by stone was laid,
With every hurt and every pain.
So stone by stone the wall will break,
As love replaces everyone.
Please be the one,
Who shares enough,
To find the flaws, no matter what.

They Come

Battered and bruised they come
Scattered and torn they come
Homeless and lost they come
Lord, they come..
Mocked at and pained they come
Laughed at and scorned they come
Hopeless and maimed they come

Unclean and sick they come
Diseased and lame they come
Tormented and hurt they come

Trampled and faint they come
Rejected and stained they come
Wearied and shamed they come

Open the gates they come
Clear all the ways they come
Let angels praise they come

And wish I could say those words to you
The words that would disclose what I feel

Every time I wish I could get closer to you
And whisper those words
That will set out our life in motion
That will give you a reason to think of me
And give us a reason to be!

Candlelight Flames pt. 1

Strip me with your golden stare
Your golden eyes Your golden hair
Strip me naked in the rain
Dancing and Dancing ~ So beautiful you stand
Dancing and Dancing ~ Your love in my hand
Dancing and Dancing ~ Our love in the sand
This night last forever
Its never the same
Our last dance together 
As you burn ~
my Candlelight Flames
Your eyes held closed so tight
I'll swim in your OCEAN 
As you scream for me in God's name
Your love all scraped down my back
As you scream for me in God's name
up you and in you
and up you and in you
I choke you
Over and Over
and Over and Over ~ I choke you all Over
So helpless you stand
Your life in my hand
as I push you Over
~Your Crying Despair
Now it all just falls apart
Your arms around me
Just fall apart
So just Dance this Last Dance
as you choke in the sand
It all falls apart 
scraping God's name all down my back
Dancing this Dance
as you burn my

Silently I Cry For You

I wander through this land 
Of broken promises and dreams
Clouded by the death of you
Wondering what life means

My colourless existence 
In a world of black and grey
Reflects the person I’ve become
And who I am today

Without you in my life 
I seem to have no life at all
No one here to guide me
Or to catch me when I fall

I almost hear you breathing
I almost feel you near
I almost feel your touch
Sometimes it’s almost like you’re here

This jigsaw puzzle of my life
Has pieces I can't find
For half of me went with you
Leaving half of me behind

I feel so cold and lonely
So battered and so bruised
I feel so insecure right now
Tortured and confused

My life is like an open book
Written but unread
Thoughts I never told you
Words I never said

The voice of hidden truth, I know
Will never now be spoken
Though time may heal my scars
I know my hearts forever broken

Silently I cry for you
Silently I pray
For silence is the loudest spoken word
I never say

I can’t escape the darkness 
I’ve come to know so well
While you are free in heaven
I still reside in hell

And here I will remain 
Until the day my life is through
Until the day God takes my hand
And leads me back to you..

Memories

Thinking back on you and I
It doesn’t seem that long
It’s hard for me believing how
The years have come and gone
Everything about you still
So fresh inside my mind
Precious memories locked away
But never left behind
I shared with you my daytimes
But my nights I spent alone
It tore my heart to know your nights
Were not spent on your own
I knew the risks involved
Because you wore a wedding ring
But I never knew the pain for me
That wedding band would bring
For years my heart was frozen
From a love that it once knew
But I knew my heart had melted
When I fell in love with you
With you and I together
So many things were shared
But most importantly
I never said how much I cared
I tried to hide this love from you
Afraid to let you see
Not knowing of the child we’d made
Growing inside of me
I knew I’d never be with you
I never could have stayed, because
We took away this tiny life
That you and I had made
There’s nothing else you could have done
On you I lay no blame
But now my life feels empty
Full of sadness, loss and shame
I would give my all to spend
Another night with you
For you to hold me in your arms
And say you love me too
But if this never happens
Then I want to tell you still
I loved you then, I love you now
I know I always will...

Spanish Boots of Spanish Leather

 Alas, soon it will be morns of frost and icy chill
   With its lonesome blues forever:
 But nigh O God is the power and the glory
   In my Spanish boots of Spanish leather

 Somewhere out there breathes my own true love -
   Someone to see through my blether:
 For among the prickly thorns blooms the rose
   In my Spanish boots of Spanish leather

 I've dreamt the dulled dreams of silent sorrow
   And dwelt on its sad end - if ever!
 The shuffle in my step is a long time coming
   In my Spanish boots of Spanish leather

 With acute sense unspoken I've mused on thee
   Buoyed by this portent together:
 If only to find I would walk the farthest mile
   In my Spanish boots of Spanish leather

 I'm off, my beloved, where the four winds blow
   To journey among birds of a feather:
 And girl, wherever I go I know I'll get there
   In my Spanish boots of Spanish leather

 How sweet it is - your shining moist lips on mine,
   Whose heart with mine does tether:
 Come to me, my lovely, before it's too late,
   In my Spanish boots of Spanish leather

 O when my epitaph fades into the darkest night
   And words unsaid are buried nether...
 Hark, call out my name and promise bury me
   In my Spanish boots of Spanish leather

"So take heed, take heed, of the western wind,
   Take heed of the stormy weather":
 Yes, there is something to remember me by -
   My Spanish boots of Spanish leather


         With apologies to Bob Dylan.

                  ------------------

I actually had a pair of Spanish boots of Spanish leather.
I loved those boots!

A Cowboy's Life

I didn't want to break your heart,
I had no thought of that at all,
When I told you I'd be leaving
Right after roundup time this fall.

A cowboy's life is lonely,
With saddle, bridle and his horse,
A bedroll just to keep from freezing
When he's wandering off his course.

Your own daddy is a rancher.
He should have warned you from the start,
Should have cautioned you to never
Let a cowboy win your heart.

I'll be heading to the south lands
Until some wrangling work I find,
Didn't mean to fool you, Honey.
I didn't mean to be unkind.

If I had a stack of money,
I'd settle down, make you my wife.
Until I'm through meandering
I can't ask you to share my life.

Dry your eyes my little lady
And let me see that pretty smile.
There will be another cowboy
Who will outshine me by a mile.

If you find one with a bankroll
Who can afford a little spread,
Get your lariat and rope him,
Forget about these tears you've shed.

I'll be thinking of you, Honey
As I travel across the range,
But this cowboy is a rambler
And I expect I'll never change.

I Cry

I lay awake all through the night
While others lay asleep
As I think of you and I 
The tears roll down my cheek

I cry because I love you
I cry because I care
But most of all the reason why I cry
Is you're not there

My heart is torn and bleeding
A wound I cannot heal
And in my eyes you see you the hurt
And pain I can’t conceal

I wonder if you think of me
When you are all alone
I wonder if you miss the nights of passion 
We have known

I wonder if the smile you wear
Is just a fake disguise
I wonder if it's me you're seeing
When you close your eyes

You never will be mine again 
But still I won't regret
And pray you will remember
What I never will forget...

Boy and Girl

I feel my mind go wondering back
And let the years unfold
To when I first met you
When we were only twelve years old

So innocent and young we were
Just holding hands together
When we shared our first kiss
I thought you’d stay with me forever

But then as we grew up
I left behind my school girl days
It broke my heart to turn our backs
And go our separate ways

And as the years passed by
I tried to put you from my mind
For I had family ties now
Leaving memories far behind

But you and I had something
That forever would be there
A love that grew from innocence
That no one else could share

And though I tried forgetting
In my heart you did remain
For deep inside I knew one day 
Our paths would cross again

We couldn’t hide our feelings
Though we both knew it was wrong
For we were man and woman now
The boy and girl had gone

But deep inside we’d always known
That 'we' could never be
While you were tied to someone else
I had my family

So once again you walk away
But never will you know
The sadness and the pain inside
The tears I'll never show

The heartache that will stay with me
Until the day I die
For you will always be the love I lost
Who said goodbye...

TO LOVE YOUR COUNTRY

To love your country,
you must commit yourself indefinetly;
there are no doubts, or fears
when it comes to defend it fervently..
do it for the sake of  your family,
or your countrymen who wish for peace!

They will send you to distant lands,
away from your loved ones...
to uphold freedom and its sanctity,
and you'll shine with bravery!

Anytime peace is threatened,
you'll retaliate and engage in combat,
true soldiers always fight with self-confidence,
never retreat in any circumstance!

There'll be days of fright , of darkness and despair,
and nights to shed tears on cold pillows;
no tender eyes to glance into or arms to embrace,
but  surrendering distorts your honor! 

As the mission comes to its end suddenly,
and you are one of the surviivors to declare victory,
although you'll also grieve for the fallen ones:
you'll wave your flag to the calmest skies!

To love your country,
you must avail yourself of dignity
and protect its borders vigilantly;
be aware of its tremendous cost:
risk your own life,or allow
the enemy to toast!

daisy

Daisy trips and falls apart
The mysterious rider brings her back
And now wonders how she ll find
The way back home cause is its off the line
And runs away leaving the rider alone
He comes back for her 
On the dark dawn
She refuses to go back to his lost life
The angered rider loses control
Cause daisy was the one whom he loved from soul
And for one last time he asks her to go
To the dark den with him for eternal light
For daisy nods no cause she loves her home
Fuming with fury he wins along 
Cause daisy said she will stand her ground
The rider calls in his horse to take  leave
Distressed yet still in love he climbs his horse
Galloping his horse he starts to race
While snatching daisy from her most beloved home
Cautious and anxious she struggles through the ride
Then comes the deepest valley with the bridge
Daisy unknown of the little bit of it 
Tussling and grappling the little doll piece
Falls of the bridge before he could grab her
Bawling for help when taws’ to late for her
And once again
Daisy trips and falls apart
But the mysterious rider on black mare couldn’t save her fall
For he is down with the heart ache of his lost love
And as said so........ 
He wanders on the edge of the bridge you see
In search of his lost love or her screams
not knowing its too late for all her pleas
'Cos the daisy was the one whom he loved from h soul.
And daisy said no cause she loved her home
And so goes the story of one lost soul who took control with her innocent prose

Lost Lover

The carcass of my subliminal words echo through smoke filled corridors... it is an intricate dance where the subjective yearning of broken hearts and confused minds labor.
This is the food of the poet, deep emotion transcribed through longing, like the kiss of a long lost lover... feeling her... almost touching her... but she is gone.

So you wake up to sorrow and tend the flames of the candle of your heart, feeling her... but she is a ghost... you pray tomorrow she will come... the inspiration of a lovers heart, yearning to be touched. Dancing back and forth in this mired dungeon, from the window to the wall. Wondering if there are any roses in your garden that you could pluck for her before the seasons wilt young virulent life.

The life of a heart bleeding for seasons long passed when the dreams of champagne lips was the promise of tomorrow's wedding... When you find that you married the broken shards of a schizophrenic mind. That your wife has danced away and all you can do is to curse the wind that whispers of her a thousand miles away.

But maybe tomorrow, when you tend the flames again... the wind carries memories of new beginnings... maybe tomorrow, holding hands with a lover's shy smile... maybe tomorrow, she will let you begin again. We are in love with the seasons and dark winters eventually fade to spring.

Detoured Dreams

I always thought of heaven,
as a warm, New England Fall day. 
The leaves were shining brighter
than the street post lamps at midnight. 
I’m cruising along the highway. 

Passing scenic pastures, tiny plazas and singing-
perhaps we are all just standing
on the great shoulders
of the men and women who were before us?
Everything that was -is 
fortunately apart of today.  

And I write-
because it relieves my pain. 
I create
because it’s nice to remember how to love.
Am I therefore less worthy, 
if I one day choose to make money, 
off my lovely creations?

What if Hitler had become an artist? 
Legend has it at one time, 
that’s what he wanted out of life.

What if Hitler had become an artist? 
What if someone had embraced this passion, this skill?
He could have sipped wine, 
painted on blank canvases,
and basketed in reflection of the moon.

He could have
Made love, 
and wrote songs, 
and Praised God, 
for the fortune of being able to dream. 
 
Instead, 
He abandoned his love for creation,
His love of art, 
praised only the devil
and became crazed with hate,  
millions were slaughtered, 
millions had to pay the price.
How tragic can life be?  

But now, 
I’m Passing through scenic pastures, tiny plazas and singing-
perhaps we are all just standing
on the great shoulders
of the men and women who were before us? 
Everything that was -is 
unfortunately apart of today.  

we never know just how much
shutting down one little, tiny, persons dream
can effect so many other people’s dreams.
and the generations to come. 

What if Hitler had become an artist? 
 would it have spared us some?

God's Perfect Path

God’s Perfect Path

For it was written

Today is the day 
To really start living

25yrs of love for you

The first time I met you I will never forget,
I fell in love with you the moment our eyes met,
In December that year it was the best day of my life,
when we took our vow's and you made me your wife.

We didn't get engaged,
we didn't need that kind of thing
and 20yrs later you bought me a ring,
When I opened that present what a surprise
I've got to admit it bought tears to my eyes.

Two wonderful children,
a girl and a boy.
Over the years there's been laughter and joy,
there's been times that we'd  fight and argue it out,
but our love for each other was never in doubt.

For 25yrs we have been blessed
with much love and happiness,
and now to make our lives complete
three wonderful grandchildren for us to treat.

Loving Arms

Loving Arms 

Before I knew you

In my dreams I saw you there
Ever waiting on the shore

I wasn't ready to receive you yet
Yet you stood there ever more

I saw your arms outstretched 
In my heart 
Your love for me was etched

Now the day has come 
You and I are one

Thank you for your patience 
And undying love

For you waited for me
And were ever gracious

When the worries of  your heart become too much to bare

with hope in hand and i will always love you no matter the cost

My Easter Wish

Its Easter time for family and friends,
Joy and laughter goes on to no end.
The big Easter hunt will soon be here,
Kids are all happy to know that its near.

Its a special time in most parents life,
To have their kids around them,its an awesome sight.
They will search the house up side down,
To find the most Easter eggs, and wear the crown.

I found the most ,one kid will say,
So i wear the crown ,through out this day.
Not all Easters turn out like we plan,
For one kid is lost,like a grain of sand.

As parents we try and deal with this lost,
Of one kid not here,and the trials it has cost.
We pray that God will look after her, in her struggle to see,
How things went wrong , between her and me.

If i could turn back time ,and right the wrong,
Make things better,grow love that strong.
Pay more attention to their wants and needs,
Help them through trouble times, is where i should be.

Easter comes but once a year,
It should be the time of love and not of fear.
Trying to see things through her eyes,
Makes me feel sad, for i know she tries.

Listening to the quiet off a thought
Painting a fantasy with dreams
A paradise so perfectly wrought
I wished there to never leave
For as fantasies sometimes do

This is what my heart says

i swing into dreams
i swim into the deepest sleeps
i never seem to get back in time

now the world seems clearer
my friends say i am getting better
i wonder if those are just words to deny

and a lover of the abyss
you sprang out of the mist
but i cannot give you what you seek

the phone keeps ringing
and my heart keeps doubting
of all the words you have tried to speak

so speak no more.

so let me go.

please dont speak anymore

now i just want you to know.


there are rainbows and clouds
better than what i am right now
you can find them somewhere out there

my heart cannot bear the pain i will send
because i am not mister evil again
please my heart says i want to get out there


my heart says i want to let you go
i just want you to know.
i dont love you anymore.

Waiting for you

Once told you I wanted you, Look at us now. Feel that I need you. I’m not quite sure how. Let you in and I don’t want you to leave. Is this something you can believe. 
I’m losing myself in your expression, not letting you go now that’s my confession.
Your right in front of me and my body is still. Counting my blessings, can this be real? Felt your lips touching mine, Still cant get this out of my mind. 
Caught up in each other we’ve lost track of time, With each moment that passes I realize your mine. 
If this is a dream I beg you  not to wake me, If its meant to be we’ll feel it inside. Cant control my feelings I’m all over the place. My hands feel so empty not holding your face. Don’t want this to end, I Cant let this end.
Don’t mind me while my eyes ponder you, I would stop but none of me wants to. Starting to leave now, cant seem to go. Feeling you want me, its starting to show. Pulling me closer,  I’m losing my breath. Losing my breath again.
If this is a dream I beg you  not to wake me, If its meant to be we’ll feel it inside. Cant control my feelings I’m all over the place. My hands feel so empty not holding your face. Your all that I've wanted, all that I've needed. How did it begin, I know this wont end.

Heaven's Song

There is a song amidst the heavens 
From days so long ago.
It's words are played amongst the stars
So soft and very slow.

They sing about the One above
Who made them all to shine.
They sing about His awesome deeds
He's done throughout all time

His works they are so very great
That even nature shows.
How there must be someone above
To make each thing to grow.
 
Now you can hear that song at night  
 If you are very still.
About the one that died for us
Upon that lonely hill

But He is not there anymore 
Nor will He ever be.
For  while He lives above the stars
He  also lives in me.

Will you ask Him in your life now
If you don't know Him yet.
He'll take away all sins decay
Erasing all sins debt.

There is a song a  midst the stars
From days so long ago
Each word declares the majesty
Of Jesus Christ I know.

Inspired by Psalm 19: 1-3

1 The heavens declare the glory of God;
And the firmament shows His handiwork.
2 Day unto day utters speech,
Night unto night reveals knowledge.
3 There is no speech or language
Where their voice is not heard.

In The depth of the heart

If you were, to look deep inside of my eyes, 
Look past, my faults and imperfections. 
Look past all that seems confusing and different. 
You could see my heart, and if you look even closer, 
You may fall in love with all that,
I could be and all that I have already become. 
You could grow with me, You could understand me, 
and you could embrace beauty that is deeper than the outer shell. 
Slowly, you could love every inch of my being. 
And appreciate Every breath that we have taken together. 
Once you have fallen in love with my soul, 
Then you have truly loved me. 
You see, my outer appearance will change,
and I may begin to look different as the years, pass by.
If you have fallen in love with my spirit, my heart. 
This will not change your love for me. 
When you have learned to love me, for what is inside of me, 
We have made it, and can dance through this life together. 
And as long as you stand near me through this life, I can live. I can breath and I can learn. 
When this is found this is Love! Beauty is only measured from within. 
Looks will fade on the outside, However, 
always be found again when someone looks deep inside your eyes!
 Time doesn't change that beauty, it is a gift!

For them

For them.

To her the word love refers to a boy.
Something she yearns for and misses dearly.

The day they met was cold and fraught with January chill.

“Oh, that does seem so long ago.”

That is the untarnished memory she replays over and over again when events in her life go array.
Back then it was tangible and real, their lives together had not been succumb to so much misery and woe.

They have triumphed, failed, and even caused each other more pain than can be imagined; But through it all they always walked the path together, holding each others hand.

She loves him unconditionally and for that some people cant understand but love needs no excuses, certainly not for them.

She adores him for working so hard, slaving to the man trying to base a future and a plan for them, but she feels guilty that  their small American dream over the years has always led down a dead end.
With today’s hard times she knows they are not to blame, but still her idol hands carry burden with them.

A plot of land, a small farm, and a home to call their own so they may grow old.
that’s all the pair desire.

He loves her to, a thought that at times is unfathomable.
He admires her dreams, even if they are bigger than the world and never distills fear in her that they wont one day come true. She thinks ill rationally and believes in things as a child would, but this merely makes him smile at her spontaneous outlook.

To him she is like a wild bee, searching ferociously for something.
At times he doesn’t think she will ever find it, that’s why its so hard to see her cry.

Life hasn’t been fair for them.
It’s a tragic book that just keeps reading on.

But they muscle through living on their dream and knowing that as long as they have each other, everything will be alright.

And as they drive home to their house with no walls, catching glimpses of each other in their ratty car they don’t feel so alone.

Behind those blue eyes, she will be forever nineteen to him and to her, as she gazes into his brown large pupils; the boy she knows has grown into a man and at that moment they know, one day all the sacrifices they have made will pay off.

The End Of It

Yeah, it's true.
I hated you.
You hated me, too, though.
So,
As you can clearly see,
The playing field's even between you and me.
You hurt me.
That's clear to see.
I, in turn, hurt you,
Not that it was right for me to do,
But I did.
Apology accepted?
Yours is.
Can't that be the end of it?

My Long Lost Friend

He was my best friend
His name was Snoopy
He was a beagle
My favorite pet.

I got him on Christmas day
He was just a little pup
I loved him so much
Then God took him away.

He was out hunting 
He never came back
He was gone 
Just like that.

I wonder every day
Where is he
Alive or…
Dead?

I still miss him so
I cry at night
Missing him
Missing him.

One Too Many Loves-me-nots

No desperate lover wants a fleur
with one too many loves-me-nots.
Should ever such a fleur occur,
be everything but soft with her.

Be sure to tell her just how mad
you were with her result,
and how the extra loves-me-not
could not have been love's fault.

That flower was not just to you;
therefore, no plucking should you do
again. You should do this instead:
forget the fickle flowerbed!

I left the garden and its woes,
I left the lily and the rose,
and left the dreaded floral sun,
on which my desperate plucks were done!

No longer should you ask of them 
if you are meant to be with him!
Discover for yourself what's true!
I did!--and he replied,

"I do."

Loves Praises Sing!

Your love is like a song
It caresses my heart and soul.
Your love is always around -
It never lets me down!
I can sing your praises 
My whole life long!

I love to feel your breath -
It dances upon my skin.
Its like unto a soft Spring breeze -
It leaves me weak in my knees!
Oh!  Your eyes!  I'm enraptured
By their captivating gaze!
A single kiss from your sweet lips -
Leaves me in an induced haze!

I love the silky smooth glow
Of your emanating skin -
The scent of which, fills my heart -
With deep longing from within!
Your voice echoes sweet chords
Of Heavenly delight -
My soul bows down in the presence
Of your great and brilliant light!

Her love is the most cherished -
One man has ever felt!
Even 'round her in silence -
Heaven's Angels knelt!

I love her with the greatest love -
Only one man is capable of.
Its me!  Your one and only -
True and cherished Love!

Remember Me

When I go away,from the places where I'd play...
Don't forget to say, I remember Him this way.
The stories about when We were young and bold...
the dances and the girls I'd hold.
Remember how I used to drive, without fear, GOD on my side...
fast and slick, my cars they shined, so many cars so little time.
How I won those races, and the grins upon my face...
how I like women wearing silk and lace.
Remember that I wanted a family...
kids to enjoy, a little girl and three little boys.
Stole from Me when they were small...
remember I missed and LOVE' em all !
How we fished and boated too,
My old trucks and the coupe' ,a '32.
The times that were good with harmony...
My life so rich and full ,on My way to blessed eternity.
When I go don't put Me away...
think of the songs I wrote and played.
Remember Me when the day is thru...
the good I used to do, great memories of ME and YOU !!

Just Can't Let Go

I’ve tried to forget you and what we’ve shared
I’ve tried not to believe that I really do care
But it makes my heart ache to tell myself no
There are too many reasons that I can’t let go

I remember the laughter and all of the fun that we’ve had
I think of how you’ve made me smile all the times I’ve been sad
I’m just so crazy about you and I’m letting you know
I love you too much to let you go

I want you to want me and to hold me so tight
I need you to need me and to hold me close at night
I want you to think of me wherever you are
I want you to remember my love is never far
Tell me our love will continue to grow
Please tell me that you just can’t let go

I’ll continue to love you and to treat you right
There’s no time for yelling and no reason to fight
My love is so strong it could move a mountain
That’s why my love pours out like water from a fountain
It’s so easy to love you and I just want you to know
That’s another reason I just can’t let go

Whenever I’m with you my heart begins to sing
You really do make my heart smile with all of the joy you bring
You fill me with excitement from head to toe
That’s one more reason that I just can’t let go

We need each other like the earth needs the rain
We have nothing to lose and so much to gain
You have someone to love you without causing you pain or sorrow
Someone who will love you today and still be here tomorrow
Someone who will always love you so
Someone who just can’t let go

Just give into your heart and live life on the wild side
Believe in me baby and I’ll take you on one heck of a ride
Look into my eyes and tell me what you see
A world full of love is what you will get from me
Just take a chance and don’t tell your heart no
Don’t miss out on true love, tell me you just can’t let go

This is the way that real love should be
You won’t get hurt this time, no not by me
It’s time to believe in someone you can trust
This is true love not casual lust
You can believe in my love I have eyes only for you
My heart is all yours loving, honest and true
There’s really something you should know
This heart of mine just can’t let go

The power of love is something we can’t understand
It’s rare and beautiful and can only be found with the touch of God’s hand
He brought us together for what we may not know
Let’s just hold onto what we have
We just can’t let go

Treasures of Your Soul

Whispered words from behind a wall,
to cronies gathered short and tall.
“Go on ahead,” he said, “let's see.”
“If I can turn her sweet on me.”

So from within, she heard the tale:
the rye, small, snickers, the wolves’ wails.
Yet, like the doe in the fires light,
the wail entranced, did not cause fright.

Wide-eyed, so stunned, the morsel stood,
in frozen stance within the wood.
Within his reach and steady glance,
the hunter broached the ancient dance.

With swagger, grace, he set the pace.
the honeyed tongued Knight on the chase.
He spoke words of honor, brave deeds,
of his claimed virtues she took heed.

“No, ” said the Maid, for she was shy.
“I’m afraid,” she moaned. “Do you lie?”
He turned her chin, and eye to eye,
stroked her fair cheek and heard her sigh.

Offered cake to this starving waif,
with trembling hands, she took the bait.
For upon his lips and rough skin,
She could, sweet-sugar, taste within.

He sought the warmth of her blood; bone.
He thought the conquest was his own.
Yet, she too held a hope within,
to bring forth the goodness in him.

Oh, she could feel his aching need,
'Twas his seedling soul, she'd feed.
The prey, prayed, to touch his heart.
to give the Hunter a new start.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Many’s the times, his teeth came near,
to the pulsing vein in her throat.
Many times the Universe stopped
like a dandelion seed afloat.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

The hunter balked, stayed for a time,
tasted the joy of her sweet wine;
loving the feel of a drink new,
a gift, love, offered each of you.

Could he extinguish this pure light?
Could He reciprocate, cause fright?
Sorry, was the wolf deep within.
He was sorry; she’d let him in.

Sorry, he couldn't grow in her arms,
Sorry, he couldn't loose to her charms.
“Sorry,” on the tip of his tongue.
As he left her, unharmed, on run.

“Sorry.” said she, rising higher,
made stronger by her pure desire.
Like the ancient Phoenix, she rose,
on the wings of her loves fire.

And prayer floated back from above.
A prayer, sent with her hearts' love.
echoing his sentiment many ways.
“Sorry Love," She said. 

"May the Wolf find his Way.”

Your Eyes

The places I go when looking into your eyes,
Away from reality and all the lies.
I wonder if you see the same things in me,
If our love could ever be;

But then she comes into the picture,
And I realize the looks you give to her
Are the same looks I give to you,
But our love I never pursue.

I don't know why I sit back and watch
As your love for her grows and mine is lost.
I guess I'm holding on to a dream
That unfortunately will never be.

Sing a Song of Roses

Came from California, looking for a place to fall:
Portland’s good as anywhere, and now it’s best of all;
Learned to love the roses, and the rivers full of rain;
California drove me north, and Portland drove me sane.

Leaving all my memories back behind where they belong,
Sang a song of roses, and I let it make me strong,
Lifting up my life inside my hands to make it grow
Tall as any mountain rising mighty in the snow.

Sing a song of roses,
Dreams of me and you,
Portland love encloses
Dreams of me and you, 
Sing a song of roses.

Gentle people welcoming you, with an open hand, 
Mighty people not afraid to fight to keep their land;
City on the river floating ships from overseas;
People soft as roses, people tough as Oregon trees.

Been a long time coming, but I’m here to rest awhile,
Never mind the highway, never mind the weary mile;
You and me and roses, and the salmon in the streams;
Can’t believe were thriving, Portland rain has washed our dreams.

WALKING SHOES

I’m tired of you.
Back stabbing me and not keeping it true.
Deceiving and lying
When I caught you, here comes the fake crying
The sad bedroom eyes hiding behind a guilty face
The phony kisses and the warm embrace
What you hide in the dark always come out in the light
Sometimes our secrets we thought we hid is revealed in our own sight
You claimed you loved me 
But it’s more like you hate or envy me
If you really don’t love me just let me be
Everyday I tried, believe me I prayed
But I hope you don’t think you’re here to stay
I even loved you when you did not love me
“So why are you still with me?”
So take your shoes and go
Don’t tie up your laces so slow
Remember I gave you love when nobody else would
I even took away your doubts that every man is no good
“Shush don’t say nothing don’t even talk.”
Just take your shoes and walk

What Is There To Us

What is there to a word,
If its empty, all alone?
What is there to a poem,
If its angry, and never shown?
What is there to a name,
If its face just doesn't care?
What is there to a fight,
If a solution is never shared?
What is there to a night ,
If its wasted, spent apart?
What is there to a day,
If it starts with broken hearts?
What is there to the ocean,
If it stops coming back to shore?
And what is there to a Soulmate,
If they don't love you anymore?

Tree House

Whenever i feel lonely,I sit up here and think,
About the things that ive done wrong,and the hearts that ive caused to sink.
I wish there were ways i could change some things that i might have said or 
done,
But somethings said out of anger,can only hurt someone.

My mind begains to wonder of what might have been,
Had i not said those awful words that cause you so much pain.
I guess its my way of striking back ,for the pain that you caused me,
But i see now that was wrong,for here i am now on bended knees.

Your love ive lost forever, I will never feel the same,
I go through life day after day wondering whos to blame.
Was it you ?Or was it me? Or are we both at fault?
For all the things that went wrong,now dont seem its worth a grain of salt.

Now i must leave my tree house,and hurry off to bed,
For tomorrows another day and i must rest my head.
I know my little tree house will always be there,when ever i want to think,
About the things that might have been, had we only have found the right link.

Playing With Jealousy

A boy and a girl
The best of friends
From elementary to high school
From beginning to end

Through all those years
Their friendship grew
They both felt the same
But neither knew

Each waking moment
Since the day the met
They both loved each other
Sunrise to sunset

He was all she had
In her horrible life
He was the one who
Kept her from her knife

She was his angle
She made him smile
Though life threw him curves
She made it worth while

Then one day
Things went terribly wrong
The next few weeks
Were like a sad song

He made her jealous
On purpose, he tried
When the girl asked “Do you love her,”
On purpose, he lied

He played with jealousy
Like it was a game
Little did he know
Things would never be the same

His plan was working 
But he had no clue
How wrong things would go
The damage he would do

One night, she broke down
Feeling all alone
Just her and her blade
No one else home

She dialed his number
He answered, “Hello,”
She told him she loved him 
And hung up the phone

He raced to her house
Just a minute too late
She was laying in blood
Her heart had no rate

Beside her was a note
In it, her confession
Her love for this guy
Her only obsession

As he read the note
He knelt down and cried
He picked up her knife and
That night they both died

She was found in his arms
Both of them dead
Under her not
His handwriting said

“I loved her so
She never knew
All this time,
I loved her too…”

SUMMERWOOD COTTAGE

This early morning light, 
full of pink blush 
End of night 
I feel the blood rush 

The warmth of you, 
sets my heart on fire 
Soft breathing 
This closeness, 
I will never tire, 
for I love you 

This intense physical feeling 
Your love to me 
Your healing, 
is what I need you see 

This early morning light, 
flickering through, 
summer wood cottage 
Good bye to the night 
I love you too 

This night has passed............. 
So very fast 
I want it to last, 
the whole day too, 
because you want it............. 
as much as I do 

This emerging pink sky 
is for you and I 
Endless sky, 
for you and I to fly 

This beautiful night 
has now passed 
Pink sky, 
for you and I 
A new height, 
our love to last 

I trace my finger 
down your cheek, 
letting it linger 
It is you I seek 
Yearning sigh, 
under pink sky 

Midnight blue, 
has followed through, 
with pink sky 
Summer wood, 
awaking nearby 

Early morning breeze 
at summer wood cottage 
A new dawn, 
rising through the trees 

My love for you, 
under pink sky 
Here in summer wood 
Forever too 
This night  passing by, 
our love......... understood

heaven on the water

trawlers steam out from dutch harbour
patroling the frozen waves
serching for gold under the sea 
to feed my family

in the wheelhouse the stars shine in
skyes dark and air so thin
no mater where this vessel takes me
my heart is yerning out for you

heaven on the water
is where im dreaming of my love
i see your face on the misty spray
as im calling out your name
heaven on the water
it wont be long my love
for a few more days i know you`l guide me 
guide me home to you

icey winds shiver my spine
as we bring out catch abord
empty net and broken dreams 
as the waves come crashing down

storms break loose with a crash of thunder
rolling across the bering sea 
up and down around then under
but still i dream of you

heaven on the water
is where im dreaming of my love
i see your face on the misty spray
as im calling out your name
heaven on the water
it wont be long my love
for a few more days i know you`l guide me 
guide me home to you

i see you face as the boat goes down
sea whispering my name
beconing me to the river
where we first found love

heaven on the water
im still here my love
watching you and our daughters 
from the stars above
heaven on the water 
calling out your name
calling out your name
heaven on the water

Cupid Doesn't Care

Remembering that Valentine’s
Is just an off kilter lie
And love is cruel and hateful
A salted drink splashed in your eye

Perhaps you will live your life
For no one else’s fame 
Clutching for no other’s gaze
Far ways from the game

But no, you want to fall in love
Just like all the rest
Through warning friends will say to you
Alone is for the best

Gods look down and laugh at us
Like a sitcom, only real
And so they grin and snicker
And let their laugher out in peels

Hope is all we try to keep
When love just isn’t fair
There’s just no help for us you see
‘Cause Cupid doesn’t care

COLD TOMBSTONE

I came here with flowers
held gently to my sobbing chest,
to bring them to my dearest;
I have departed from the living,
to come face to face with my ending...

I lay my flowers at this cold tombstone...
engraved with a name too sweet,
and yet so painful to call it out;
the heat in my throbbing veins
could warm it up with a loving wish before dawn;
but who can resurrect someone from death?

This morning is dazzled by an intense sun,
carnations, flags and tombstones
perfectly blend as the swaying pines 
offer their breeze and soothing shade towards noon;
why are the noisy larks hiding,
and melancholically sing?

I rushed here to release these tears
and let them roll from these eyes,
like raindrops falling on this very quiet place:
where tranquility is as eternal as Paradise...

I lay my flowers at this cold tombstone,
feeling a presence so known;
others before me have knelt and cried, 
not to forget whom they lost and dearly loved...

THIS BEAUTIFUL STORY

Like others that love in haste,
and their passions go to waste...
I mustn't write end
to this beautiful story
like a sad tragedy;
I've come to the conclusion
that there are more questions
than answers that need
to be considered
and leave nothing to suspicion!

There wouldn't be a victory,
if we ran away from sincerity;
I've seen lovers lose
their chance at happiness...
all because they didn't choose
to be true and wise!

Like people unsure of themselves,
twisting words...to cover them up
with bitter  sweetness...
I musn't write end
to this beautiful story
that needs to be told intact:
to lovers who risk  everything         
with hearts so open to joy!

And I won't be satisfied until I breath
the same air that you breath,
and go through Hell to reach Heaven...
to be sure that I never be coming back!

I mustn't write end to this beautiful story; 
let these hearts  find their own glory!

Bruise Me

You always try
to break me down
you always try to knock me out
damage me with just your words
not physical but it still hurts
and all you do is make it worse.

You bruise me
Cut me with your tounge
Brutalize me, cut and binding
as my blood pours from the scars.
You bruise me
and it's really nothing more.

Berate me
go on hate me
it's something you love to do
yell at me, because now i see
there's nothing left for me with
you.
Your eyes so cold, words are old
nothing else that you can say
times running out, it's over now
and your the one who bruised
it away.

You bruised me
Cut me with your silver tounge
Brutalize me, cut and binding
As my blood pours from the scars
You bruised me
And really nothing more.

Outer Space

Are we visited from another world?
I think we are ,but we are never told.
They visit some times late at night,
So they are not detected  by our lights.

Our radars they can fool,theres no doubt,
They fly through our air space, in and out.
The only way we know that they have arrive,
Is when they put thier space ship into a dive.

One crashed in the desert , a long time ago,
But it was all hushed up, no one was to know.
It leaked out in the press that very same night,
By people who witness the falling lights.

The army told people to stay away,
To have nothing to say about what they had seen that day.
But we as a people, think all should know,
If you want to visit the site, then you should go.

We often wonder why they would come this far,
From a distant planet out there in the stars.
Is it because we are related in some way,
Or are they just passers by, its hard to say.

Now its our turn to travel to other worlds,
To see if we can meet other boys and girls.
We hope they will be friendly, when we finally meet,
To live with out War , now that would be neat.

I hope they dont see us as a war type,
And have come there to cause trouble and fight.
For its Love and Peace ,that we should share,
Even though we still dont have it here.

Innocent people are dieing here every day,
We know we can stop it, so lets find a way.
We have to bring people togather in love and peace,
So when we get to thier world, we will have a smile on our face.

OUR MAIN REASON FOR BEING HERE...

When youth sets us beautifully aglow
to soar on the swift wings of a sparrow,
and altough the unknown may frighten us:
we will not stop from living out those dreams,
because we are the constant seekers
bolder than the soldiers of fortune 
willing to stare in the face of events that'll follow, 
be in the incognito and confront fate alone...

Our main reason for being here
is to accomplish unthinkable and amazing things;
to start where the smallest dream begins,
and make it grow by taking the giant steps of an achiever...
We should never fear the challenges that lie ahead, 
but is it worth to step back and not speedly act...
imagining of the wonderful visions 
of the the unseen tomorrow that
rampantly flourish inside our impatient head?

Will we fall from the flaming,crimson sky
and grope our way to a passing cloud above
with the certainty of having found love,
or will we quickly come down to earth and die?
Which one is better:  being a disillusioned dreamer,
who can still dream,or a sullen-looking miser?

Our main reason for being here
is to love with grace and intensity,
and have the willingness to break down
the ugly and horrible barriers of alienation;
and finally let all thoughts flow in without diversity,
to discover who we really are...

Passionate Strength of a Woman

She will love him as he is leaving
without pain and tearful goodbyes
She know he will be coming back to her
She can see it in his eyes

As he turns a smile is given to her
a beautiful vision close she will keep
"Its only for a little while"
whispers her to sleep

She tries to be strong
as she longs for his sweet gentle touch
This passionate strength of a woman
has lived through so much

She feels she can touch him everywhere he goes
She hears his thoughts to her he calls
within her Soul the love she knows...
so she waits...

i shall kill when the sun shines
build up my courage
then stab him in the heart
exactly where he stabbed me
slaughter him with my hands
for giving me pain
watch him plead
letting not one tear fall
make him feel
what i am still feeling
burn him up 
then leave him there
not letting him die
but making him wish i had
for making me look one direction
while you run the other
shattered my precious living jewuel
for your own amusment
this is a game to you
so now game over

Lost Love

As i sit here and ponder,
Why love went away.
The only thing i can think of is,
It wasent meant to stay.

For me love is great when everything is cool,
But when it up and leaves,
It makes you look the fool.

Your left holding on to dreams,
That you hold so dear.
While you watch love drift away,
It makes you shed a tear.

No matter what you say or do,
Nothing can make it right.
The piercing arrow through the heart,
Has sent it to flight.

Some day it may return,
But for how long i cant say,
Its the lies and the tears,
That makes it go away.

Its a vicious circle ,
that no one can seem to fix,
The harder we try and fail,
It always comes to this.

For those of you who read this,
I hope it helps you see,
Just what lies can do to love,
The hardships its caused me.

I know in Love there are no guarentees,
But always try and be truthful,
Or it will bring you to your knees.

A WILD ROSE

Deep in forests of green, 
beneath majestic timbers, 
in soft woody light 
wild roses are to be seen 

Achingly beautiful, 
wild roses 
The colour 
as I imagined 

The wild rose, 
wends its' way 
through the green 
The colour 
The purpose 
All knows 
All can be seen 

For where there are shadows 
A wild rose will burst free 
For it knows, 
knows it is part of me 

Petals of velvet 
Fragrant scent 
The place we met 
My heart 
All it meant 

A wild rose, 
deep in forests of green 
Shadows cannot mask 
The beauty I have seen

Half Felt

I felt you that night
more clearly than any wound
the tears i bled
from the things we said
it made even the angels swoon

i felt inside something not there
something about you didn't seem to care
have i failed you once too many times
is that why i am unforgiven of these unsaid crimes

i felt like i never had before
and for that i am so sorry
i didn't mean to make you feel something
i tell you i'll be fine, so don't worry
it was just a half finished song i wanted to sing

but days go by and dreams die
devils can sigh and lifeless things cry

i never meant to hurt myself
i never meant to lie
i walked away from you
so you wouldn't know why

i loved and felt things not meant to be had
stories don't end this way, they aren't supposed to be sad

half felt and half undone
i'm afraid the sad story has only yet begun

The Wanderer part 1

I remember a day I smiled at her
And she smiled back
That was miles away
down the road
We parted there
And I came back
to find her long gone
No trace, no note, no sign
I wondered if she
had hesitated before leaving
Was I worth a moment's reflection?
Does love escape so easily?
Can I hope for an equivalant peace?
I sat upon a stone
for an hour
On the deserted road
And reflected upon her existence
which so troubled me
How many have traveled
these worn paths?
Why do I see nothing
from horizon to horizon?
I smashed the stone
over my head
Hoping it would
ease the pain
No fresh thoughts 
flowed; but merely,
a second of intense pain
which melted into anger;
and resolved to despair
Alone I sat
till the sun had buried itself
below the distant hills
A cloud pushed it down
I knew I might die there,
if I did not travel on
Death has no mercy
So I put my shoes on
and walked

There was music
in the distant hills
flowed through the leaves
Did I detect a sinister leer
across the moon's face?

I spat at the stars
Whose light shone on me
with such a total waste

Each step
towards those grey and black hills
brought a recurrence of
each burning memory
I had no solice in thought

I took off my shoes
as I stumbled over the gravel
Hoping the jabbing pain
of each stone's attack
would flavor my thoughts

I was embarrassed
even while being alone
For I knew I was a fool
Had I not held her tighter
Had I not dragged her
Had I not missed her
on a different road.
I had not
And I paid dearly
for a few moments
of unexcelled bliss

I spent six days walking
in silence
Not a soul passed me by
Only the crickets saluted my march-
or did they laugh at me
from their dark dens?
I tried sleepwalking
when the agony of thought
burnt too deep
But I bagan finding myself
wandering off the road
You need both eyes
to travel that road

I was close to death
one weary night
A night so weary
I was restless with exhaustion
When the darkness
reached out to grab me
And I nearly smiled
to see my end

A sudden flash!!
A gleaming yellow light
The dim flicker of hope
swelled at the
possibility
So I ran
with my last moment's breath
to embrace a beauty
which outshone my old love

Strength returned and
my feet were no longer sore
Love bloomed to heights
I never knew existed
Old loves and earlier horrors
were dispelled by her
shining yellow light

A SUBSTITUTE FOR THIS LONELINESS

Another charming woman is
sharing with me what I used
to share with you without guilt,
even without a sad feeling or thought:
to find a substitute for this loneliness...
for  that deep void you left inside!

The cell phone always rang
at the end of the evening;
and I was so thrilled
to hear you at the other end:
to listen to the sweet words that were
able to turn an uncaring man
into a gentler and kinder one...
and I learned how to care!

Oh,how I long to hear that voice again,
and like a dream that needed litttle dreaming:
you came knocking on my door at dawn,
and I let you in without hesitating...
so earger to touch you like nobody could;
so impatient to invent a magical world!   

Another night is coming to haunt me mercilessly
with the beautiful memories and secrets 
of two close hearts loving endessly;
what other choice do I have...if not look away,
and tell myself that you don't exist in my thoughts...
to find a substitute for this loneliness?

WINTER WALK

Crackle of frost underfoot 
This snow covered wood 
Where I met you........... 
for the first time 

Clouds of breathy air, 
your cloak of deep blue, 
you made me stop and stare 

For, among the holly, 
we  both were looking for the same thing 
This cold pale sky, 
with no hint of spring 

Your first look, 
took my breath away 
Your shy smile, 
melted me 
The sun shone......... 
On that day....... 

Woods of evergreen, 
dusted with snow 
This walk.......... 
with you 
Inner glow 

This walk..........., 
with you, 
through snow 
My heart, 
wanting you so 

Your hand, 
warmed by mine 
Your shy glance 
How those blue eyes... 
did dance! 

This love did flow, 
on this walk, 
on fresh fallen snow 
So white and clear, 
surrounded by trees of green 

Woods of evergreen, 
fresh fallen snow 
Where our love can be seen 
footprints....... 
side by side, 
long ago 

Where I first met you, 
on that winters day, 
among the holly and snow 
You had far to go, 
now together 
Our way 
seems so short so

Echo...

"...you have one duck... I saw it."
"no crickets, but yes, the sound"

~I have some fish, swimming around...

Who are you? And where do you be?
As I walk this forest, how do you, see me?
A cricket's sound, some fish around,
But you and you lost to my sea.
Why, do you two follow me?

An open door, extended before,
A hand, a smile, I waited awhile, with
hopes and maybe some fantasy.
I hoped you woulda, woulda hit on me.
But in retro, I did so see...

My time of past, dyes deep and fast,
a flow, a hum, my life was numb.
In a time of change, I rearranged,
the elements of my being.
I changed, to my Me Becoming.
And I stopped in my tracks,
while in my running.

Hanging there was Venus dear,
A photo I gave you, from above.
The Sun ablaze, the Moon amazed,
while I heard your Heart. My love...

But questioned I when you raised an I,
and you didn't reply to my song?
I sang again! And I glared at you then,
but you turned, as though I were wrong?
A butterfly, a kiss by your eye... and yet,
I still wonder why your park is gone.
And the Indian Sang, but you heard no song?

~Know. The journey is Long...

WHEN YOUR DAY IS NOT GOING WELL

When your day is not going well,
look around to find someone to tell
your problems and worries to...
unless you  lose heart and hope 
and make you empty and blue,
but will you cope with your hurt?

The wonderful joy of being alive:
lies in the secret of facing your struggles,
and change despair into love;
many don't try hardly enough...
they give up and wait for miracles...
others erase their pain with a laugh!

When your day is not going well,
try to say a short and simple prayer:
that'll give you more strenght to bear...
and if misery knocks you down, stand up again,
and start looking at life with new eyes;
all the way through...your courage will arise!

Finding a better way is very pratical,
and when you reach your goal...
you'll lend your kind hand
to even passing strangers,
and love them as your very special friends;
then you won't be lonely and sad!

Arising Thoughts

Silent currents softly swirl
Around tree scented salty tears
Flowing forth from freshened forest
Awash from Summer’s seasoned years
Sunlight filtered through high branches
Causes mist to rise and glow
Gleaming in the golden fern
Drifting ghostly disappearing
Winsome weather wafted waves
Waking woods on Wednesday morning
Pauses kissed and shed of woe
Friendly forest fantasizes
As the life form warmly rises
Faerie elves and dwarfing dragons
Drift away in morning dew
Clarity of dawn is breaking
In the awesome reawakening
Another day is here anew
To spend in joy with you

The Wanderer Part two

I grabbed her hand
Hope and love sweling
Mixing into an enticing brew
Whose flavor
brought forth
all the wild creatures
from the desert araound me.
They applauded m success
and ran back for their's

But I had the luck
of the blessed
I held her hand tight
Told her who I was
She nodded
Her light engulfed me

Suddenly my fright swelled inside
What if she left too?
The dark roadis too hard
for me now.

She grabbed my hand
Told me she loved me
In twelve seconds
she smelt my fear
tasted my love
Tired of my existence
and departed

I was rooted to the spot
Her flesh's warmth
had yet to leave my palm
when she passed into the sunset

Shock numbed my feet
Shock numbed my tongue

It was dark
Darker than it had been
Too dark to breath
Too dark to walk

I fell by the roadside
To the vultures
Even crawling was too hard
I poked out my eyes
So no more beauty could touch my soul
I cut off my feet
So I could not walk
It took all of two seconds
for the vultures to come
My end is here
But death is preferable to pain
I welcome the big grey birds."

I'm Only Loving You Once

Because I'm only loving you once
I want to make it perfectly clear
No one can take that away from me
And it's a life of fear

I'm only loving you once
Forever in this life of pain
Death would solve this problem
For there is nothing left to gain

I'm only loving you once
Too bad you can't love me
If you could only love me once
We'd love through all eternity

MY GOOD-BYE IN SONG

You came away looking innocent,
nothing pointed out to suspecion
that could do a lot harm...
by hiding what was really important;
even the words you said made
such a good impression
to let you have me whenever you would,
to shut those eyes to something very wrong!

My good-bye in song
will help you carry along; inside
I may hurt...but not very long;
who will be by my side
when the need is strong?
My good-bye in song
can't be explained without words...
to feel the loss in my empty hands! 

Someone's else eyes search for mine,
how could I betray the truest and deepest feeling...
remembering the warm touches we were sharing?
Another hand is ready to hold mine,
and another smile different from yours...
can change,overnight, these love-blues!

My good-bye in song
is no exscuse to forget my set-back;
only to hold on this regret...
until I hear your apology,
but who can bring back that fantasy?

The Definition Of A Real Woman

(W)- A real woman knows that the wages of sin is death so she is not concerned about the wages of a real man, because money comes and goes like day and night; but true love comes just every blue moon. A real woman isn't loud and doesn't have to be the center of attention. Money is a gold-diggers virtue, while patience is a real woman’s virtue. A real woman is always wary of the image she displays to the world because she knows her children are watching her every move. A real woman’s wisdom comes from the teachings of her elders and the experiences and hardships life brings. A real woman is the wings that help a broken man learn to fly again. When you become the object of a real woman’s affection, winning is the only option.

(O)- A real woman’s main obligation is to better herself, before she attempts to become someone’s better half. A real woman is very obliged with all that God has blessed her with. When a man takes a real woman for granted, she makes up her mind to put him away into oblivion. A real woman is use to jumping hurdles because overcoming obstacles in life keeps her on the right track. A real woman doesn't spend her time worrying if failure is around the corner, because she occupies her freedom chasing her dreams in her most comfortable running shoes. A real woman is a hopeless romantic ready to be wooed with an odyssey of love with a real man by her side.

(M)- A real woman’s presence is magnanimous and captures attention because of the poised and elegant stature of her classy nature. A real woman is like the magnet of ecstasy. All women don't attend college or hold prestigious employment, but for many being the Valedictorian of mothers everywhere is the major of their lives. A real woman respects the art of marriage and believes in monogamy. A real woman’s life is the motion picture of sophistication. The mythology of a woman began within a man’s ribs and ends in the beat of his heart.

(A)- A real woman sticks to her man like glue and never abandons his side. A real woman has the ability to do anything a man can. A real woman has the power to fill the abyss of a man’s pains with joy. A real woman prays with her other half because faith is the key of remaining on one accord. A real woman will amaze you with the way she adapts to changes in her ambiance. A real woman is the architect of her own destiny.

(N) A real woman needs a man to understand and love her for everything she is and for everything she is not because a good support system is a leading factor in longevity within relationships. A real woman is the nexus between love and happiness. When you converse with a real woman you will realize that she is nimble with her every response. No man can ignore the nymph of a real woman, because it is in her D.N.A to be notable.

A Poetry Ballad

Ballad of the poet

When the moon kissed the sun, and light spread upon the earth. *hh*
Bright and early, 
early bird gets the worm.

With sullen time on stand by.... *DJ*"
Spurns emerald valleys that blur upon my new-found perch  *J.M.G*
While all nature wakes from slumber in timeless glory. *E.G*
Morning glory stroked by a ceremonious dandelion... whisper~   *K.D*

Bitter like morning breath.
Rooster crows, two songs, I share a note with him.
My cat rises to the sun of a new day.
Stretches into a c with her tongue curled and tail furled  *S.K.*
My coffee offers the sweetest taste after a goodbye kiss.
Clever and warm, I twinkle to the new morning light,
as I step outside, something pierced my heart..
~Wing broken, his bow in tow, arrows strewn, 
~No flight for thee, love lost, bent arrows I see,"  *R.M*
Everything I see, everything I feel around me.
Becomes a new song.
Born of many emotions.
I roll them on a paper without a pen. 
BUT!  In my mind they speak clearly to me~
Look into My eyes with your heart... and there you will find your soul  * R.A.D.*

"I hear an angel calling The beastly being within"   *R.S*
A new creation awaits beyond the path of dreams content,
Eros and Cupid both shoot through my heart."  *J.H.*
As the arrow's liquid enters my soul...    *RON*
Will that winged creature with the bow and arrows stop blinking his eyes?" *R.P*
He has stretched his wings too far this time.  *V.B.*
"His arrow of love is strumming my heart with golden grace.  *L.M*
A Halo'd smile upon my face.    * L.H*
Has suddenly turned to a grimace!   *G.S.*

A Child's Dream Come True

As the sunsets at the end of the day,
And the night begins to fall,
So, does all the dreams of all the little children,
In their own wonderlands of their own,
Wishing and thinking of great things to come,
Hoping their parents will make these dreams come alive,
Cause dreams to children should become bright and gleam,
And all to them more than just alive,
All children want is hopes and dreams to become true,
But if you can teach them how to work hard at them,
They too can make their dreams become their own reality,
For any one person works hard enough,
At what they want in life,
They can have any one thing they want,
All they have to do is work really hard to make it real,
For believers can believe in themselves,
And strive to work toward making their own goals,
Their very own come true,
Which gives more satisfaction in life,
Than things being handed to you,
So always strive for the best,
And all your wishes and dreams can come true,
In your life if you want them too.

For the love of Princess Rose

For the love of Princess Rose.

Way back in the darkest times
There lived a wondrous Knight
He had blue eyes, and a handsome face
And his mind was very bright
He lived for goodness, his ideals
Were the highest in the land
And everybody loved this knight
They thought him mighty grand.

He shrunk from no one in the land
He’d fought ten dragons too
As he vied for the love of Princess Rose
Oh, he loved her so true
Yet she was loved by another knight
And so they had to fight
That was the way in those dark days
It was considered right

A tournament it was arranged
And the two men faced each other
Both swore that until the end
They would never love another
The fight was on, as Rose, she watched
The man she loved so much
Fight a man she could not bear
Who her heart did not touch.

Now Don, he was the Knight of choice
He fought like a blessed demon
He was not an evil man
Yet he was filled with Venom
And when the fight was over with
Her knight of choice did win
As love did conquer everything
And the princess married him.

Best Friend

I remember the very first time I saw you,
You wiped the sweat off your forehead,
I remember what all I use to say to you,
Followed my heart, I love you,
Maybe I needed to guard what I say,
Or express it in another way,
I hope I did you no harm,
Or is that what you call destiny,
Please know in your heart,
Eventhough how things played out,
My life and all its' worth,
Worth calling existing - living,
And without ever crossing paths,
My life would have been blah,
Words can not express how I feel about you,
Celebrate our love, if nothing more ever than be my best friend,
You are my very breath and hope of hearing from and possibly seeing you,
The very reason I make it through another day,
Our love we will celebrate far and away,
But in my heart, you are right here with me today,
I love you friend,
You make this world and all it contains worth living,
My heart smiles when it thinks of you,
I will somehow express my heart before I leave this earth,
So much I want to say,
I don't want to complicate things,
I just want you to be healthy, happy and carefree,
I know you love me,
You don't have to say it like I so often do,
I knew day one, 
When I became good friends to you!
I love you, boo!
I do!
Best of luck,
Live like you were dying!

Broken Dreams

  Do you believe in the things that you've always known,
Can you understand the things you've been shown.
   Is it the visions you see that make you believe,
Or is the feelings you get when you've been deceived.
    The pain you feel a never ending ache ,
Tearing your heart and soul from you every day.
    Time ticks slowly pounding away at you,
Throbbing heart breaking and there's you can do,
    Must I settle for these lost and broken dreams,
Because it has all the signs that what it seems.
    How much should a man endure to find his way,
It cant possibly be like this hard for me every day.
    There is nothing so frustrating as being so confused,
Especially when you've discovered that you've been used.
    I will get through this lonely phase I have no doubts,
But I'm sure there will come a day I'll figure it all out.
    Cautiously I walk the path that's been laid before me,
In faith I will continue for I know he will let me see.
    Life will be thrown at you in so many different ways,
I will be prepared for these things for the rest of my days.
    Broken dreams will be the learning tree for me to grow ,
Living my life with Joy Happiness is what I'll always Know.

London

She called herself London
On that day 
She fell from the sky
Child of apple blossoms
Dancing wildly
Into your mind

The snake that hung from her neck
Bites your hand
Expels you from Eden
Tears into the cool flesh
Of your madness
Posing as reason

London
Kisses you like a sweet lover
As though she really cares
Lets you 
Taste the passionate orchard
In her body’s secret lair

London
Wrestles with all your demons
Nothing quite compares
To the pain 
The indecent pleasure
In the waters that you share

Her name was London
Call her London

She called herself London
On that night
She prayed to the moon
Apollo’s lyre
Played darkly
In a portent 
Of your own doom

The hell she hides 
In her soul
Toxic drug you’ll never escape
You crave the milk of her touch
Her strange and dangerous ways

London
Kisses you like a sweet lover
As though she really cares
Lets you 
Taste the passionate orchard
In her body’s secret lair

London
Wrestles with all your demons
Nothing quite compares
To the pain 
The indecent pleasure
In the waters that you share  

Her name was London
Call her London

My baby, London
Call her London
My moon-girl, London 
Call her London

I love her, London
Call her London
Forever, London 

I call her London……

My Promise To You

My Promise To You

as long as I stand 
I promise you I will always be your man
as long as I stand
I will be standing by your side
you are my wife my bride my life

as long as I stand 
I will protect you
from all harm
just hold onto my arm

we will walk togeather side by side
into the sunset 
the sunset of our years

I may loose my hair or have it all turn gray
or gain a pound or two
but I will look at you with all my love
I will always see you as beautiful as you can be
as the day you gave yourself to me

never will I look at or desire another
that’s the way I was raised
like my father looked at my mother

as long as I stand 
I promise you I will always be your man
you can depend on me

A true friend

A Friend.

Associates, I’ve had so many
But let us speak of friends.
It be a term so often used
But I’m the worst of men
When it comes to picking holes in things
And a true authentic friend
He be as rare as rocking horse poo.
On a friend you can depend.

A friend would be there to the end
He’d take naught for himself
Oh yes a friend be wonderful
And adds to life much wealth
You know that when the chips are down
And the whole wide world looks grim
That friend will always be with you
His light will never dim.

This be as rare as hens teeth
But when the day does come
That you find this special friend
Your life will cheer up some
She’ll always soothe and comfort you 
And make you feel real great
A friend is someone sent to you
By the tender hand of fate

Cherish him or her so much
Cause when some-one your heart does touch
There ain’t no treasure on this Earth
There nothing that could have the worth
Of the one who loves and listens to
And gives support always to you
A true friend he till forever
He will not betray you, never!

THE PERFECT WOMAN

THE PERFECT WOMAN

What does a perfect woman mean? 
Does it mean something that meets your standards?
A standard measured by physical appearance
or from within towards one's heart and soul?

Perfect is just a label 
A label to define what you like in a woman
A woman whom you want to be with for the rest of your life
A life that will make you feel satisfied.

What is a perfect woman for me?
The perfect woman is a woman who is beautiful inside and out
Not only in the sight of those around us
But in the sight of GOD

Good night

The way I feel is sad the way it 
sounds outside
My heart is roaring in anger
My hands won't let go of your 
body
I'm fighting to keep you near 
me your lips pressed against 
any part of me
You belong to me and I wont 
give your love away
I hold you dear to my heart and 
kiss your soul when your not 
looking
Listen closely to the sound of 
the wind against your window 
as you sleep
The sounds you hear are my 
lyrics I sing
I love you my angel
My lyrics hit like pain upon ur 
pane of the window that cast a 
shadow through the cold room 
u dream in
Don't worry my angel I will 
surround your shakes & shivers 
by a blanket that I once 
covered myself in as I kissed it 
with many "I love yous!"
Goodnight my lyric goodnight 
my angel!
Xoxo goodnight with love,

A Broken Promise

Days and times to remember
Unforgettable moments together
It was only you and no other

But situations change, good moments pass away
Replaced with hard feelings everyday
Yet life goes on anyway

Life comes with its own sorrow
Goes away today but comes again tomorrow
Love sometimes brings pain
Makes you want to go insane
But surely you'll fall in it again

I promised to be with you
Some things are too good to be true
 Now I have to leave you
Cry, but don't cry your heart out
I might be gone but not totally out
Am still close to you without doubt
Shed no more tears
Have no more fears
So bad have been these years

Piece of paper

Small note on the road
Which I have just found
What do you want to say ?
«Excuse me, you are late»

Who’s gently iron writing
Destroying someone’s wish
And where your receiver?
And why I am writing this?

I know about writer
I know to whom was oath
I know how he was loving
For you his only breath

But you ? You think just money
Can bring you happy life
You wrote him note on paper
It was your last caprice

He stayed for while and cried
He punished himself
He killed himself to stop him
From taking his revenge

This small reminding paper
Was penalty for him
You wrote to him this message
Just to recieve the same

First day of summer

First day of summer

It’s the very early morning
The summer’s just begun
Although the weathers kind of cool
I know that soon the sun
Will be burning down on me
But me, I love it all
I really love these summer days
They’re really beautiful.

It’s lovely in the early mornings
To see the sun come up
And hear birds singing joyfully
It overflows my cup
All this love that it brings out
As it shines on down on me
I love to see those Lorikeets
That feed from bottle brush trees.

How I love the beers and barbeques
In a garden filled with flowers
As I watch the many colored parrots
I could sit there for hours
And watch the sun that burns on down
Then rises from the trees
And I love it in the afternoons
To feel that cool sea breeze.

How Do You Keep From Crying

How do you keep from crying
When the hurt runs so deep
And you don't want to be awake
But you just can't fall asleep?

No one ever told you
How fragile was the heart.
No one ever warned you
That life could fall apart
And leave you feeling lonely
Lost without your dreams,
Wondering and wandering,
To silent painful screams.

How do you keep from crying
When the hurt runs too deep
And you don't want to be awake
But you just can't fall asleep?

He had you believing
His love was true and real
Then mocked at your devotion
When you began to heal.
Each time there came a phone call,
A letter, or a sign
That someone else was loving him
So many other times.

How do you keep from crying
When the hurt runs river deep
And you don't want to be awake
But you just can't fall asleep?

All that now remains
Is a way to find some peace,
A way to stop remembering,
A way to find release.
You loved him more than life
You gave him all of you,
But now it's just a beer alone
Perhaps a pill or two.

A Mother Like no Other

I have a mother like no other...
Never really understood her when i was younger...
To others she was always kind and giving...
Yet to her children she was mostly harsh and controlling...
I have always wanted to know why but never did...
And as i age i often felt like a lost kid...
Constantly searching for love and care...
Something i felt my own mother would not even bare...
Now that she has aged too...
It breaks my heart and makes me shed a tear or two...
To see her old and weary...
Crossed my mind to ask her finally...why mommy?
Then it suddenly dawned on me...i do not need an answer...
For all i have to do is look at her...
Hard and long enough, without any anger...
Think of all the people she kept under her wings...
And be thankful of how they took off and soared...
Because of all the love my mother could afford...
I figured if she has saved a life at our expense...
Then....everything makes sense...

''My Love''

"My Love"
It's only a little pain
A quick rush
To the brain
Time to go INSANE
FEEL-
I feel so strong, so powerful
One more kill
One more thrill
One more chance up and up this hill
This hill I climb
Now a mountain
A fuqqing mountain
My eyes so wide
My heart so cold
My lungs inhaled straight up my nose
My brain explodes
FEEL-
I feel so strong, so powerful inside
Every breath that I take 
leaves me hungary for more
     Handcuffed to this rush 
I think i'm in LOVE
A little pain, up above
Don't stop me now it's far too  late
I love me, I love me
With no one to hate
We're all dressed up
We've got on our smiles
"Can we climb up your mountain?"
We're your friends, your the best
We want that rush
We'll sing in your nest
We're all dressed up
We've got on our faces
We came to your door
No hiding in places
We want that rush
We'll climb up that mountain
Blood Red Stain - splattered inside my brain
It's always the same, this fuqqing game
Put me to shame, bury my name
Just point and aim 
Take me again
I love me, I love me
This mountain grain
I saw Sam Hain get high in Spain
So I jumped that train
I fly my plane
Nobody knows
" I " am the Captain, so
   "I'll fly right through this fuqqing mountain"
Again and Again
This fuqqing rush
So Insane    I close my eyes
I can't obtain all my thoughts
Crashed through the rain
Hanging on this chain
Hanging from this crain
If I lie, pull my drain
I love me, I love me - So fuqqing lame
" Dear Father "
Tear out my hair
Tear off my clothes
You know I don't care
Naked I shall pose
Naked I shall stare
Just stick it where it goes
This fuqq so rare
" Is this what you chose?"
Give me all my fair
Stick it up my nose
Stick it between my legs
Love Me and Love Me and
Penetrate my Soul
Make me Rock-N-Roll
Up and Down, forever I'll go~~ Go Go Go!!! 
Like a Cat~ YOU will purr
And like a Lion I'll ROAR
I love me you know
But now I must go
Take me to your place
I can't explain~ this rush, again 
Straight up to the Brain
Such little pain
Blood Red Stain
And i'm not ashamed
Time to go Insane
FEEL- !!!
     I guess it'll never end...................................................................................

The Windmiller's Lady

The day was warm and sweet with spring
no breeze came to tease me.
I'd wondered what my love would bring
I'd wondered. "Where could he be?"

His mill stood high upon the hill
a short ride from my home,
a picnic planned would be a thrill
but that man would not roam.

I grabbed my bonnet, left the shawl
and out the door I ran,
perhaps, he had forgotten all
no sense of time that man.

I found him on the windmill's walk
staring at the gilded sea,
clay pipe in hand he watched a flock
dazed in silent reverie.

He smiled at me and cocked his head
and said love, "Don't you agree?"
what better place to share our bread,
"Have you brought lunch for me?"

A Champion

I have survived four years of abuse,
being mistreated,neglected,and ignored
being scared,worried,stress of  all misuse.
I freed myself of all hurt and pain,
couldn't hardly tell the sunshine
for all the rain.
Losing weight and worried about my health,
often sitting and wondering,if I brung all
this on myself.
Just wanted someone to love me,
giving up on love altogether and scared
of not being happy.
I am a champion and I made it this far,
and I'm learning to trust and love again
with all my heart.
I am a champion and I won't go back,
I'm pressing forward and keeping
my life on track.

The First Time

The first time i layed eyes on you
 it wuz love at first sight
 Nobody can keep you away from me tonight
 
When Im around you my heart beats fast
 Im hoping that it would pass
 so that i can concentrate in class
 
Even though we've known each other for a short time
 You've been running through my mind
 in this short period of time
 Im glad its not a crime

Forgotten Valentine

Life is like a mysterious night by the burning place,
Between two people are engaged.
Love in any form is romance,
And the dream of mysterious love never once.

I lay down to write a romantic poem,
That never needs a single coin.
My eyes speaks with affection,
Because we have found the love with Devotion.

Every time we took each others eyes,
The flame goes higher and higher.
Everyday with your husky smiles,
You take my breath tighter and tighter.

The sound of your voice still ringing on my phone,
The voice that every woman shines.
My life is not complete since you’re gone,
Again, how can you be mine?

I just want you to know,
I will always love YOU.
I became a poet’s fellow,
Because of YOU.

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

Kiss the Rain

Kiss the Rain 

By: Tyner Twine 

'A ballad I wrote based on the Piano Music By: Yiruma'.
Dedicated to the man I used to know

As I take a glimpse
On the endless sea
I felt the oceans
Between you and me

Our fates never crossed
Our love was lost
Through the tides and waves
Of our destiny 

The day you swore to be
Forever with me
Was also the day 
That you've left me be

To be by the side
Of another bride
And I am left with pain
As I kiss the rain

And so tonight,
I’ll cry to sleep
Hoping dearly that someday you 
Will come back to me

But dreams aren't true
I clearly knew, 
That today
I have just lost my most important ‘you.’

(Instrumental)

((You and I both knew we could never fight it, that we could never evade it, 
that we could change…But I know that amidst the smile you hide your pain…
the pain that I can’t ever share from now on…because I have lost you…
and you have lost me.))

As the waves grew
And we drift apart
Please meet my eyes
To say your goodbye

But you looked away
And left all the pain
Deep in my heart
As I kiss the rain

And so tonight, 
I cried to sleep
And hoped someday that you
Will come back to me

But dreams aren't true
I clearly knew,
That tonight,
There will be no love from ‘me and you’

So love, I’ll say goodbye,
And hide the tears to cry
Your fake smile will haunt me down
Until I die

For we have loved so true
And lost ‘me and you,’
Left with scars and clouds,
And tears from heaven

As I feel the rain,
Wash down all the pain,
Our dreams reached out 
And died in vain

Please stay by my side,
Hold me through the nights,
As we fight in vain,
As we kiss the rain.

Yet why am I alone in the rain?

Star Child

Constellations in my eyes;
Windows they're said to be.
Look into them now, and tell me what you see.

Calling every angel born in Hell:
"A child of the stars looking for his soul to sell.
So few are left to be birthed of Orion's Belt."

Soon they came; rulers of every layer.
Each to make their offer, 
And leave their summoning prayer. 

"Centuries of wisdom, and a mind that holds no time.
The past, present, and future are all close friends of mine,
And the Titans of the Universe I stand so close behind."

They opened all my wounds to taste how I have suffered,
Shamed me for my scars and all that I've recovered. 
Then mocked me for my weakness, known only as 'The Lover'.

"It is forbidden for us to deal a soul of the cosmos,
And you taunt us for what you wish to sell.
But we've found something in you to make us heroes down in Hell."

You are protected by forces greater than your own.
Should any God or Demon make you bow before him,
Death would surely find his throne.

It's your heart that we desire, and the love that you still hold.
Grant us this purity and surely you'll have more than this world can hold.
Let it be known that your heart is the heaviest to hold.

Surely it is quite the burden to bear.
So strange in it's nature, let us free you from it's wear.
Success will quickly follow and embrace you in it's care."

Yes! Take from me all that you desire!
No longer will I suffer in it's muck and it's mire!
Do with it what you will in the cold and the fire!

With their prize, they left with no hesitation.
Legion upon legion; Hells' United Nations.
All for their Master and all in celebration.

Lowly creatures is what they're cursed to be.
They know me by many names, they know me by many faces.
And my heart I've sold on every occasion. 

Fools! Surely they must know!
That every heart I give away
Brings me the love that stays.

LOVE WILL FIND AWAY


Real love is like water from tropical mountains
It will find ways to flow down from the hills
Wild water is draw by forming beautiful river
Battered and tumbling down to kiss big boulders

Made noisy to cruise a hundred miles of destination
The birds and flowers cheering together in the excursion
Running water made high ways to reached the amazing journey
A journey that river and ocean met and lived happily

What a wonderful world man be falling in love
Find ways in reaching the impassable road of love
Building a strong meaning of loveliness
And vanished all doubts meaning of loneliness

That Girl

“That Girl”

I missed that girl,
That girl.

The girl who smiled when i spoke,
That girl from 6th avenue.

That girl who never leave my dream,
That girl who sung and i danced.

That girl with a red dress,
That girl who spoke and i lost all my mind.

That girl who spoke and i lost all my mind,
That girl who kissed me and i lost all views but heirs.

That girl who touched my hand and i dance tunes,
That girl who seemed born with that dress and shoe.

That girl with lips that called my head next to heirs,
That girl with body that magneted mine.

That girl who took my mind from that night,
By one night my mind went crazy.

Though she is taken by that rich shameless man,
I will never rest.

I will go on to say,
“I loved and i missed that girl, that girl, i missed that girl.”

please let me feel shame for the love
that i have for you thats soully insane
with life and so much happiness i give

Waiting for you

I’m  just waiting for you
Come back to me every night

I’m  just waiting for you
Without you life  is cloudy  sky

I’m  just waiting for you
Waiting  to  fly  with you    
To cuddle with me  every night

I’m  just waiting for you
Without you live is boiling bubbly 
Come back to me every night

mr right

Love gone ,
but love that is never meant to be ,
guys that i know are growing up in their minds too fast
chase after me.
how do you choose from the good and the bad , 
and how can i keep from being sad,
Mr.Right may never come along,
but I'll keep patient and sing my song for loving the wrong guy
could make  me wind up getting hurt.
So I'll sing my song and judge him for myself.

You're Just A Stranger

Why do you despise me
why can't you let me be,
how come you always pestering me.
How come you can not see
I am beginning to turn my love away from thee
Just as you are turning your hate on me.

I proceed biting my words back 
and just nodding my head
you think i am the one to blame
but you'll end up losing me instead.
I try to talk to you, but you
cut me out and shut your ears
where will this get us
in fifteen or so years.
 
You bring down the pressure
while i try to do as you say
Only until i lose, you win
will you stop yelling and walk away.

Here i sit, expressing my stress on paper
only hoping tomorrow will bring
something better
and that i won't lose my life forever.
Please forgive me 
for this paper may be wet with tears
I know this is a stage in life,
I pray will pass in a few years. 

As i write my anger fades
but when i think about you it returns
I hope we both learn from this
For I may lack empathy
but you are always so very stern.
It seems everything I do
has gotten on your nerves
And I know you don't hold it inside
For your anger does surly splurge.

Tonight you have taken my phone
and cut me off from my friends I truly need
your words hit me hard,
and to you I can not plead.
Someday I may realize
what you did was probably right
I will try to understand,
I will try with all my might.
But until that day
or until through my eyes you see,
You are still a stranger
You're just a stranger to me.

Sweet Devotion

Staring into plastered wall
Looking far beyond the fall
There was a place, beyond the pay
where wonder lit up every day

A place in which fields of hope
led young couples to elope
And in the sky, faint but there
the stars smiled and warmed the air

This place I treasure in my heart
Hide in plain sight till I depart
But with another it is best shared;
I give to you reason to care

This paradise of my creation
Shall forever bond us loving nation
Though mortal coils may fade and rust
Keep faith and love; stay strong and just
Consider what is truly worth
and every time you close your eyes
Until the day of your final rise
Heaven is together, upon this earth

The Dream

Refrain:
Oh, do you know the finest road
That leads to my desire?
Nobody walks that trail but me,
My dreams will set to fire.


That one heart I was looking for,
The heart of Anthony,
The purest heart I’ve ever seen,
Someone perfect for me.


A dream occurred while I’m asleep
We’re walking hand in hand,
We sat down, I lean on his chest
Down there on fine, white sand.

(Refrain)


Another night, another dream
It made me feel in awe
"I'm weary of this journey, love,
I want to be with you"


My tears fell down but I smile,
The feelings were the same
So when he turned and looked at me
I said “I want your name”

(Refrain)

I Cant Forget

i thought i was starting to forget but,
when i woke up this morning
you were the first thing on my mind and,
i realized that

chorus:
i cant forget
no matter how hard i try
when i score myself
on how stupid ive been
its a perfect ten
i almost forgot that
i cant forget

i had so much to do and
thinking about you
wasnt even on the list

somewhere between the cleaners and the grocery store
i thought of you once more

chorus

no matter how hard i try
i cant get you off my mind
i try not to cry
sometimes i do, thinking about you
being gone, so long

The Song of the Loner

Cut out from the rest, feeling so left out I lay my head on my hands and sigh: Why did things have to happen this way Why is it that I was denied? Denied the basic friendship, A meager ounce of which could help, To grow in thought, deed, word and spirit, To help strengthen myself. Why is it that I feel the need, To sit in the corner and cry? The cold creeps in and I’m overcome By the darkness and void of the night. I lift my head and open my eyes, The tears they blur my sight, And through hazed vision I notice a single star, A lone beacon in the sky. The clouds they part and a million other stars Come out from hidden slumber; They join with that single star to make The glow in the night sky brighter. Combined with the light of the great white moon, They light up the earth below. Their twinkle and their glimmer reflects on the pool, Of tears lying on the floor. Suddenly the truth hits me: My life was playing right before me! I realize that soon the time would come When I would not be lonely. That there would come a day when I wouldn’t have to weep In self pity and dismay; That the clouds of hate and bitterness Would one day roll away. That the love and friendship I duly deserve Would fall like summer rain Refreshing my soul and replenishing my spirit Making me whole again. Yet till that day I have to wait And learn to shine on my own. So for now I stand up and wipe away my tears; My spirit no longer forlorn.

The True Christian's Mission!

In my quest for this mission,
Many days and nights I prayed,
But plagued by selfish visions,
I asked what the Spirit had to say,

The battle engulfed self and spirit,
Screams of desire flooded my mind,
While fierce haunting demons appeared,
My voice of reason was such confined.

Yet the Spirit moves in silence,
And while this Spirit ever grows,
It ever gently reminds us,
By whispering gentle blows,

Thus the tranquil wind,
Burst in upon the storm,
And the quieting din,
Deafened hellish horns,

And in hush's sweet embrace,
The Spirit within me said,
Messages filled with grace,
Of how others must be fed.

Give them glimpses of wonder,
Inspire them with your faith,
Yes, give them much to ponder,
Yet in a much more simple way.

Don't lose them in scripture,
But to the word remain true,
Only teach that which is sure,
And that which you can prove.

There will be those who oppose,
All that I would have you say,
But this is why you were chose,
For this great mission today.

For you have been surely blessed,
With a faith complete and whole,
You've been prepared for this test,
Now go and share what you know.

And keep in mind your quest,
To gather the children who know,
That love's the answer to this test,
Upon which a true Church can grow.

Now I come before you today,
For help in spreading this word,
For its the Church we must save,
To find a path true and sure.

The end times are now upon us,
We need to be better prepared,
With a Church which is more just,
To embrace those lost and scared.

Our Church should always be righteous,
And offer salvation's warm embrace,
It should help the groom to find us,
And with our lamps full we will wait.

But our task reaches further still,
As there is much work to be done,
For we need to ensure God's will,
On earth as it is in heaven!

We'll teach love and forgiveness,
Of both trespasses and debts,
Our mission does not glorify us,
Rather the Lord who gave us this quest.

Once we believe our mission complete,
Humility will show us we have more to do,
And we will always endlessy seek,
That which the Spirit tells us is true.

And above all we will keep in mind,
That it takes a heart wide and great,
Filled with all the love we can find,
To pass through the narrow gate.

So a call to action must be made,
For our great holy quest has begun, 
Visit us whether or not you're saved,
At True Christian Church dot com.

A * Window * In * The * Skies

The shakles are undone

The bullits quit the gun

The heat that's in the sun

Will keep us when there's none

The rule has been disproved

The stone it has been moved

The grave is now a groove

All debts are removed ~


Oh can't you see what love has done?
Oh can't you see what love has done?
Oh can't you see what love has done?
What its done to me?


Love makes strange enemies

Makes love where love may please

The Soul and its striptease

Hate brought it to its knees

The sky over our head

We can reach it from our bed

You let me in your heart

And out of my head, head....


Oh can't you see what love has done?
Oh can't you see what love has done?
Oh can't you see what love has done?
What its done to me?


Oh, oh, oh, oh....
Oh, oh, oh, oh....
Please don't ever let me out of You ~


I've got no shame, oh no, oh no


Oh can't you see what love has done?
Oh can't you see?
Oh can't you see what love has done?
What its doing to me?


I know I hurt you and I made you cry

Did everything but murder you and I

But love left a window in the skies ~

And to love I rhapsodize

To every broken heart

For every heart that cries

Love left a window in the skies

And to love I rhapsodize....

Mixed Emotions

It happened at the wrong time
But what happened was beautiful
I denied it for a long while 
Never wanted to fall victim to it
But when I realized what it was
I never wanted to let go of it
It made me feel whole again
It made me want to do more	
It made me believe I could do anything
If only there was more time
I could have become accustomed to it
I could have known how to deal with it
I surely hope I have not lost this
I do not want to be without it
I don’t know what I would do without it
I hope I can deal without it
I want to feel this way forever
I want to hold on to every memory
Just to be able to go back in time
And relive every precious moment
Give myself hope that it will be there
That the future holds more of this
And I will become stronger by this.

One And The Same

One and the same
Is such a rhythmic name
And no game
One and the same
Make them feel regained
Where they became
One and the same
It is so substained
Which makes their hearts tame
One and the same
Time will tell
So they can exspell
One and the same
With their hearts to aim
With love to gain

Is this a true love

i don't know why i love you, but i do
i don't know why i cry so, but i do
i don't know why i dream of you, but i do
a thousand years passed by since yesterday
but i still remember you
like we met some minutes ago today,
every time i see that painting of lovely fountain
my eyes are always filled with tears
i don't know why, i don't know why.
as i walk through the street
remembering your sweet memories
with so much sorrows in my heart,
since i know you would never come back
sudden i heard your name
i felt my past comes to meet me
and i look back to see you again
i don't know why,i don't know why
someday we will be together again
may be in this life or in heaven
we will walk on the road paved with gold
and i will hold your beautiful hand again
i want to be with you forever
i wish i could share my feelings with you
without you i am very weary and alone
and my soul is wounded since the time you are gone
now i am like going mad
and every night in past three years
i have been going to your graveyard
i don't know why,i don't know why
i don't know why i love you but.........................

My Endless Love

If I could but hold my love again
My heart would beat as fast
As once it did when love was new,
So far now in the past.

Refrain:
True love is ever lasting love
True love can't be constrained.
When lesser loves have come and gone,
True love shall have remained.

It doesn’t fade away with time,
An endless love once found.
Forgotten not, although he's been
These long years under ground.
(Refrain)

I see him in grandchildren’s eyes
And sometimes hear his voice
When I am in my quiet time
And reminisce by choice.
(Refrain)

Life does go on and interferes
And memories grow dim
Except for those of endless love,
Enduring love for him.

Love


        Love is like rain it comes down in a surprise
        It hits you like Karma the tension begins to rise
        You feel like your drifting deep  into mid air

       Love can  make you act strangely or feel some type of way
     But when you have true love it never get’s away

Candle in the sky

A night of sorrow; I see so 
many stars 
but none so bright, a night so 
dark, no flashlight 
no compass no way to find my 
candle in the sky.
Today I lost you hiding in my 
blackest night,
alone with no guide. I'll 
remember you bright,
but your absent light will 
sorrow my everynight.
I lost the light of you in the 
night sky, 
not my dream of you so bright

Rose Hips Lady

Rose hips lady
Your field is ripe
Bury my torn body
In that rain-soaked night

Taste those sweet confessions
On your baby breath
Lift this wounded flag
Into your burning nest

Oh, yes, I will
I will

Rose hips lady
Your field is ripe
Bury my torn body
In that rain-soaked night

Tame the roaring tiger
Never lets you rest
Take my last reward 
From your moonlit breasts

Oh, yes, I will
I will

Daddy’s gone hunting 
He’s gone away
Daddy’s gone hunting
Won’t be back for days

Left you with a lover
Makes a shrine 
Of your skin

Left you with a lover
Takes you down
Roads of sin

Left you all alone 
Alone

And the knots cut deep
Through the musk and flesh
Of hot regret
And the love you need
It’s a shadow
Never lets you rest

You release the Beast
From a well that’s wet
You will confess
That the love you need
It’s a shadow
Never lets you rest

Aaaaaah......

Fireworks Hill

Let’s go climb
And move back time
To that mysterious hill
Where a boy first met his girl

Long before 
The cynics arrived
Before the laughter died
And God returned the day to night

Where dazzling fireworks
Rained sparkles
On our lives
Two strange birds
Came together
And opened up their eyes

Let’s go climb 
We’ll move back time

Fireworks Hill, Fireworks Hill
Far from my mind
Never forgotten
Fireworks Hill, Fireworks Hill
We became one there
So very often

And there are vivid colors 
Blasting through the sky
Dancing rainbows 
I really want to taste
There is weeping smoke
Painting all the stars
Burning graveyards 
For the human race

Let’s go climb
And move back time
To that mysterious hill
Where a boy first met his girl

We’ll race to the edge
Fulfill our pledge
It was written in blood
The heat of our love

Oh, jump, baby, jump
We’ll fly away together
Jump, baby, jump
Our bodies joined forever

Let’s go climb
And move back time 
To that mysterious hill
Where a boy first met his girl

Fireworks hill, fireworks hill
I see the sparkles in the air
Fireworks hill, fireworks hill
I smell the dazzle of your hair
Fireworks hill, Fireworks hill
We flew to Heaven over there

Let’s go climb
We’ll move back time
(Forever…with you)

I JUST WANT TO KNOW

(Guy)
I know that touching you seems so unreachable
Yet every night I find.. hope in the moonlight
The thought of being together, it just feels so right
Never want for you to be.. out of my sight
I'd give anything, if we could be more than friends
With a love that's unending.. let's let love begin
You've stolen my heart, cupid's arrow always wins

(Girl)
I know these feelings that you feel, I know they're real
And if they were completely mine.. I'd be fine
But we are best friends, and my love's not blind
So although I'm so flattered, it's not our time
I'd give anything, if being best friends was enough
Knowing your longing.. It sure makes things rough
But darling I do love you, you've got the right stuff

(Both)
If the love we feel was the same for you and me
It would be so incredible, it would be ecstasy
We'd soar over mountains.. ride the seven seas
We'd dance till morning, we'd love to eternity
But our love is different, in the intensity of our heart
You want all of me.. While I want only a part
It's not worth our friendship, can't take that chance
Is it wise to risk it all, for one shot at sweet romance

(Guy)
You don't see it now but you are worth my wait
So I'll go on in longing, wanting for my song
The thought of being together.. doesn't feel wrong
Chasing dreams in the night sky, hope it won't be long
So I'll live with the illusion.. Someday you'll love me
Until you get star struck, and suddenly you see
The deepest kind of love.. Is the kind for you and me

(Girl) 
Oh, all your words are tied with beauty and grace
I wonder are you.. inspired from Heaven above 
And sometimes honestly I feel I might, be falling in love
Yeah, what if we were meant to be.. Hand in glove
These thoughts are so dangerous, got to let them go
Your longing, wanting desires.. I have to say no
Still there's something inside of me, I just want to know


(Both)
If the love we feel was the same for you and me
It would be so incredible, it would be ecstasy
We'd soar over mountains.. ride the seven seas
We'd dance till morning, we'd love to eternity
Is our love different, in the intensity of our heart
You want all of me.. Can we really be a part
It's not worth our friendship, can't take that chance
Or should we risk it all, for one shot at sweet romance

A Love Lost

Caught inside a painting,
A Rembrandt, made of her family's hopes and dreams

Searching for happiness,
Within a two dimensional canvas, little scope there seems

Outside the colours,
Someone captivated by her beauty, hearing her empty screams

Only for the key,
Longing to be outside, he opens the door and beams

Filled with intrepidation,
Beckoning “come outside”, his love for her it teems

She turns away,
For others she must stay, hiding from her dreams.

My place in the world

Climbed to a tree -
and there -
between earth and sky -
I wondered -
where I do belong.
 
I love to fly through the skies -
and wonder through the earth -
I love clouds in the sky -
and flowers on the earth.
 
Then you came -
you offered me your hand -
and I knew.
 
My place in this world -
is with you.

Remove your makeup i want see your god given beauty,

Confusion

I am completely confused, beyond my words,
I am interested in this girl that changes my world,
Change is something I fear but today all is unfurled,
But what do I do when I choose to change the world?

Relationships for me have never been so easy in past,
More than half of my relationships never seem to last,
I work too hard and try too hard to pass,
Then I fall as if forever, right on my ass.

Seeing her in class, she seems not mizzy,
Yet all the time I try, she comes off as busy,
All this confusion is making me feel so dizzy,
So what do I do to change this rampant tizzy.

That is enough, with this confusion I am done,
All these questions are weighing me down by a ton,
Pass me my book before the night has victoriously won,
I'd rather move on from this confusion and just start having fun.

Forever, For Always, For You

Sweet Angel of mine
Euphoria as high as the eye can see 
The immediate cultivation of a man
In the most blissful of moments
On that special day you came to be
So delicate, so precious
Those distinguishable features
Leery eyed, despite a struggle to focus
And for that one brief instant your expression begged the question…
Do I know you?

In this one shining moment a connection took form
The sealing of a bond, strong enough to withstand the most horrific storm
The pride that was embedded
The reflection was prophetic
Whatever will be your endeavor, you have an eternal protector
This world can swallow you if you let it

So, shine my little angel
Find strength in your name
Someday you’ll know pain, 
But always remember
The first man who held your hand will always be your softest place to land
Always and forever

But for this day, beauty has been refined and enhanced
So will you save the last dance? 
For me?
You can walk with me in a park
You can speak your worst fears
You can tell me what’s on your heart
You can dampen my shirt with tears

And they’ll be a day when you blossom and you’ll find that love expands
The feeling moves you
The energy super 
It will lead you down an aisle towards your future
And you’ll still be my little angel
Always

Just know that in all your days
Whether from here or above
Forever my angel
For always in my heart
For you, all my love

The Light of My Life

The Light of My Life
Rommel E. Gabitan


You came when I was in despair
Crying my heart out in the rain
Your voice eased the burden inside
My lonesome, troubled, broken heart

You came when the stars faded away
When their light ceased, darkness followed me
My fears and tears ate me up inside
With no guts, no strength, no glory to fight

All of a sudden, morning came by
With all your light, you turned darkness aside
All my fears were gone, strength was renewed
With the dawning of hope, glory was restored

My heart sings with joy and laughter
Everything is finally in great harmony
Now I sing a new song of hope and triumph
I’ll tell the world, you’re the light of my life

Don't Break My Heart

Don't break my heart.
It's a heart that'll carry on forever.

Don't break my heart.
Your love to me's the loveliest thing.

''Man of the Sun'' A Response to Pablo Neruda's Poem Girl Lithe and Tawny

Blithely rising in shadowy night
Is Man of the Sun wearing the threshold
That was once been secluded from the sight of me
But together has drawn me closer to glee.

As swiftly as the sun arise back in the eyes;
Like morning glory bloom dash’ly under bright light
My heart surrenders to Love what they called
Relish days playing music of caress.

But I a girl lithe and tawny still frenzied youth
Settling for one hardly creep to my grasp
As fresh as I hunger for pleasure 
Of what may World compromise that pleases the soul.

Man of the Sun, sorrow not in deepest night
Someone a woman be laudable of that sincere love
Acquaint other who never pierces the heart
For I not worth, the girl whose love blooms and withers.

New Year's Eve

It is the new year's eve again
And I am all alone.
My one connection to the world
My silent telephone.
There was a time in my long life
When he was by my side.
I looked forward to New Year's Eve
And supper by fireside.
After dining we'd sit by the fire
And plan our happy life.
He was my faithful husband and
I was his loving wife.

Lovers can't always see ahead.
Sweet plans can go awry.
Our plans did not include the thought
That one of us could die.
Tonight my thoughts go back to then
As I sit all alone
And wish that Heaven could be reached
By my old telephone.

WALK TO NOWHERE

This morning alone
Silence echoes in my home
No one to share the paper
No one to make me better
It'll never be the same
Without you here
It's so clear, I'll be alone in mourning

Girl, its too much to bear 
You're already there 
You're already there
And my heart left with you
Now I'm a shell of a man
Trying to do what he can
On an aimless walk to nowhere

Passing the time
No reason no rhyme
No one for me to remember with
No one to shop for a surprise gift
I'm holding on to air
Knowing you're not there
Only time is passing by

Girl, its too much to bear 
You're already there 
You're already there
And my heart left with you
Now I'm a shell of a man
Trying to do what he can
On an aimless walk to nowhere

I don't want to say it
It feels so wrong to think it
To find another way (another way)
Just to make it through the day
Something that makes sense
Hope's hidden evidence
Cause I really can't go on
If my life becomes this song..

Girl, its too much to bear 
You're already there 
You're already there
And my heart left with you
Now I'm a shell of a man
Trying to do what he can
On an aimless walk to nowhere

Antigone

I am the face of misery
My life, a dissonance of autumn and spring,
The years are written in the same
Lugubrious, nostalgic grey
How can it be the author to blame?
I cannot scream this all away…
Burn nor Bleed this all away…
To Death I am Ordained

Lacuna ever growing
With Velvet sheets of life flowing
Aeons apart of my "royalty"
Under the mask the cannot see...
Can you dispel this tragedy:
Antigone - Epiphany failing

If it must be…
Then just kill me,
(Antigone) sing me out of reality;
I wear this dissonant crown of shame
(Antigone) Of a kingdom's disdain
I hate to be this way... normalcy's bane
(Antigone) Here comes the edict, to blame
The sordid child of Thebes,
This is me,
Antigone

No words of hope
No words of hate
Do I have Lenore to send to me:
The sordid child of Thebes
Caught In the longest nightmare
life - the slowest way to die

I know this is my life 
But I'm not under control
under the mask the will see
Just Another Human

If it must be…
Then just kill me,
(Antigone) sing me out of reality;
I wear this dissonant crown of shame
(Antigone) Of a kingdom's disdain
I hate to be this way... normalcy's bane
(Antigone) Here comes the edict, to blame
The sordid child of Thebes,
This is me,
Antigone

If it must be…
Then just kill me,
(Antigone) sing me out of reality;
I wear this dissonant crown of shame
(Antigone) Of a kingdom's disdain
I hate to be this way... normalcy's bane
(Antigone) Here comes the edict, to blame
The sordid child of Thebes,
This is me,
Antigone

Can you dispel my life; this tragedy?
Can you control the storm in my mind?
I'm asking you: can you rid me
Of The Curse of Antigone?

BREATH OF LIFE

This soul was dying and crashing,
But she gave me a breath of life.
She whispered beautiful words of life,
That rejuvenated the strength within.
I started to feel the life within me rise,
And made me feel alive again.

With the breath of life I rose again,
And the petals of my life blossomed.
Once more I felt the warmth of love,
Melting down my once cold heart,
Into a warm heart that can hold love.
It is a good feeling of happiness,
That makes this heart make a beat.

In the shadow of my own loneliness, 
Life was as dark as a dark night is. 
The sun in my life had never set,
And the moonlight was never bright,
To light up the world around me,
Until she gave me a breath of life,
That filled my heart with love.

She is coming from the far horizon,
But I can smell the smell of her perfume.
With her majestic move I hear her steps,
And my heart is beating in expectancy,
With every step she makes closer.
My hands are widening up for her,
Ready to hold her in my arms of love.

If Only I Had Known

If only I had known I’d never hear your voice again
Or hear you whisper sweetly in my ear 
I’d memorise each word of love you ever said to me
So when I'm all alone, your voice I’ll hear

If only I had known it was the last time I would see
The man I love with all my heart and soul
I would have held on tighter and kept you close to me
And never would have ever let you go

If only I had known it was my last night in your arms
That I would never wake with you again
I’d pray for God to hide the sun and let you stay with me
And pray for night time always to remain

If only I had known you would be taken from my life
Be left with only memories and tears
I’d cherish every second, every minute spent with you
To keep them in my heart through all the years 

If only I had known that you were leaving me behind 
So many things I never got to say
To tell you what it meant for me to have you in my life
Steal one more kiss before you went away

You were my love my heart my soul, the reason that I breathe
And now you are my Angel up above
Please listen, and hear me when I say a prayer for you
The only man I know I’ll ever love ...

You

Only as a friend, I thought you stood by me... I walked around blind, because i could not see... You were my knight and shining armor, my friend so dear and true... You gave me hope, when i was sad and blue... Only I not to realize, what you really meant... Until that winter day, when that text to you i sent... Looking past the imperfections, I told you with my life i have to do... So you told amazing stories, and said that i was amazing too... I thought if only you would realize, we are friends and nothing more... Now it is I who understands, its you who I adored...

FOREVER IS FREEDOM

I need to pray to make myself free. 
I love freedom because freedom is not free.
I have freedom but not forever
There is no forever.
Even the word forever is not forever. 
I don’t push and insist to be free
I just guide myself to make it free.
What is important I accepted freedom?
I will do the things right.
My strength is my weakness.
I am my freedom
Forever is freedom!

WHY

Why did God create a life
That wasn’t meant to be
Why did He give eyes
If they were never meant to see
Why did He put breath in you
Then take that breath away
Why give you to me
If you were never meant to stay
Why show someone happiness
And how it feels to smile
And fill their hearts with hope
If it can only last a while
Why did God create the sun
When all it does is rain
How am I supposed to laugh
When all I feel is pain
Why let people dream
Knowing their dreams will not come true
Why should I find someone else
When all I want is you
Why say there’s a Heaven
When it doesn’t help to pray
Why is there tomorrow
When I long for yesterday
What’s the point in searching
Knowing you’re not there to find
Why give someone life
If death is following behind
So why God when He took my love
Did He not take me too
For life is not worth living
If it means I don’t have you...

Don't Forget

When the mourners turn away from the grave

Don't want them to be sad of what I could have been

When I make it to the Gates of heaven

Don't turn your head in shame from me God

I only lived selfishly till I knew You

When the wind has torn the leaves from my grave

Don't forget to think of me

When the Spring brings buds back to the trees

And when the Sun is warming your brow

Remember my clear blue eyes and a smile

Being human isn't easy as  we're told

Bills still need paying

Food still needs to be gathered and bought

Dark still need the light

And love is the only guarantee

Can you hear me when the birds sing

Or when the crickets call on a summers eve

Can you see me in the morning when you wake

Can you taste me when you have a cool drink

Do you feel me  when I hold you in the night

Love never dies

We take it with us when we go

It's just harder to remember

Please Give Him Back To Me

I just don’t want to be alone
I don’t want to be free
I cannot be without you
But all that’s left is me
I lie here in the darkness
I scream, I shout, I cry
But no one seems to hear me
As I pray, I pray to die
There is no daylight in my world
No sun, no moon, no glow
No smiles or laughter; only tears
Just tears, sad tears that flow
I put my hands together 
I pray to God above
To take me from this lonely place 
And to the man I love
But in the deafening silence
I know I face defeat
I know I'm still alone, because
My broken heart still beats
He took you from my loving arms
And walked you through His door
You belong to Him now
You belong to me no more
I know I live on borrowed time
I know it won’t be long
Before I'm in your arms again
The place where I belong
And I will keep on praying
Until he hears my plea
To take me through the gates of Heaven 
And give you back to me...

The Kind Of Hand To Hold

It’d be nice to have the kind of hand to hold
that is there when you’re sick,
your stomach buckling up into your knees.
The kind of hand to hold that says, “God Bless you!”,
when you sneeze.
The kind of hand to hold when you’re weary,
and the travels of the day have left you
better off dead.
The kind of hand to hold when you’re dizzy
drunk,
and everything is escaping your head.
The kind of hand to hold that grasps your face
whenever it is you cry.
The kind of hand to hold that will stroke your 
hair when you damage your fragile pride.
The kind of hand that in the fourth month of a 
difficult pregnancy, will gently rub your feet.
The kind of hand to hold that you’ll never
want to let go once you meet. 
That’s the kind of hand I’d like one day to know.
That’s the kind of hand I’ve always wanted to hold.

One Million Chances

One million chances is not enough
You have finished me, I am crushed
No more tears, I've cried enough
There is no commitment and no trust

I took you back so many times
You told me lies, to keep me near
But losing you, I do not fear
It will make my world more better dear

So at this time, I make my stand
Realizing you are no man
Just a silly little boy, with no joy
So I let you go, and when you say to take you back
You will already know the answer to that

This love

Our love  embarked,
The higher level our love shall reach,
Our love shall witness the climax,
Our love shall sing the older tune,
The end our love shall reach,
This love,
Our love,
So that we will die together.

The Promise

They stopped the clocks at nine-oh-eight
And covered up the mirrors
Turned his pictures to the wall
And placed the bible a little nearer

They closed the curtains; turned out the lights
But kept the candles burning
His best friend, the dog, let out a sigh
And in circles he kept turning

She laid out a suit that he seldom wore
And hung up his overalls
Sat in the kitchen, near the phone
Getting ready to make the calls

A tear escaped from his widow’s eye
Though she promised not to cry
The only request made in sixty years
She said that she would try

The Parson said a prayer or two
Then started his way home
The doctor left some pills with her
Before leaving her alone

He lay in the bed the two had shared
Ever since their wedding night
For God to take her man first
Just didn’t feel all right

The children arrived by the end of the week
Grandkids played out in the yard
Saying goodbye to the stern old man
Shouldn’t have been this very hard

The clocks still show nine-oh-eight
Though five years have come and gone
The dog has passed, the bible is put away
Overalls still hang where they were hung

She sleeps each night in the rocking chair
Refusing to climb into the bed
Trying to keep the promise she made
But every night a tear is shed

Love dot com

A little something 
   for 
Chunky
from his girl


A middle aged woman
With a young girls dreams
Was wondering just what
True love could mean

Friends said on lines
the best place to be
Looking for prince charming
Was totally free

A few strokes of the keys
And he was there to see
Prince charming indeed
There on the monitor screen

A message she sent
Along with a pic
A click of the mouse
Led him to her house

At last the meaning of love
has been found out
Now she finally knows
What every ones  talking about

Now over a year later
Every one can see
She found her true love
without paying a fee

The Lord's Prodigal Sons

Fierce as cold winds blow,
On a blustery winter's morn,
The raging battle brings horrors,
Such that man has never known.

For the dark rapture approacheth,
And the Lord's wrath is at hand,
Salvation's gate now closes,
And woe is the fate of man.

I sit here now in stark terror,
As I read the prophets report,
I can't imagine any scarier,
Stories told me of my Lord...

And a man who soon comes,
To set all this in motion,
One to whom many will succumb,
A wolf dressed in sheep's clothing.

The story does have a great ending,
But only for those who believed,
Who found the message he was sending,
These few who will be received.

But what of the rest of man,
Who for pride or gluttony fall,
Just where do these men stand,
When we're through with it all.

Keep reading - the story's complete,
For after the gates are closed,
In the lake you will still see,
Those who were damned and opposed.

Now by fire we are seasoned,
Is a lesson we should know,
And thus we can now reason,
Where these poor souls go.

To learn more lessons,
And perhaps someday become,
After fair sessions,
The Lord's prodigal sons.

My Invisible Ink

The evening sun dawdles into the dark
Night’s darkness croons nocturne
My eyes popple as they turn into Crocus flower
Dreams flow down as I sway in nirvana.

At the sight of your godly beauty
My soul wobbled at the edge of my oblivion
Your body as charming as Jips Twink-
The special kind of Pelargonium.

Delirious with joy I was contented
The pleasure alone filled my belly
As you revealed the pearl you’re
My roots are embedded in you.

At the morning sight of your face
Smiles cascade my face in torrents
Of expressions as morning unfolds
Joy opens in my heart a la Crocus flower

At the morning whisper of your wishes 
Purred with pleasure from the tone of your voice
I woke up with only but one thought-
You’re my invisible ink.

Little Black Horse

little black horse, I've seen you around
little black horse, destined to terrorize the town
little black horse, you've seemed to have caught a mare
little black horse, with your long shiny hair

little black horse, why drag that mare around
death so coupled to you that she's destined to drown
fate cruel to her, to make her love
her soul tarnished and beaten, no longer white, and as pure as a dove

little black horse, do you not care at all?
crest fallen and withering, she still heeds your call
little black horse, she will die at your hand
yet her presence to you, just a mere grain of sand

Makes Me Wonder

Where is good when you falls in love someone at a wrong time
Where is good when you are in the right time at a wrong love
Where is good when you meet the right love at a wrong place
Where is good when you are in the right place at a wrong love
All these questions makes me wonder

I wonder why the high clouds is touching over the mountains
Just to join sympathy in the times of  sadness and loneliness
Then the rains pour down and spray the wild trees and flowers
Just giving your life to become fruitful in times of happiness
All these questions makes me wonder

Why does the storm make it cloudy while you are crying
Why does the sun is mostly shiny while you are laughing 
Why the swallow water making noise when you are getting angry
Why the high tide water keep it silent when you are so lovely
All these questions makes me wonder

Someone is asking what is love when there is no tomorrow 
We have yesterday but never today that could bring for tomorrow 
Love is full of queries that no one knows to tell the answer
No one needs to explain because only heart dictates you to answer
All these questions makes me wonder

CHAINED HEARTS

I have neither gold or silver..
Sure, I do not have a fever..
Though at times, I shiver..
For something brings me to quiver..

Dear when I am near you..
I smell scents so pure in you..
Ensuing me to devour more..
Heightening my inside's lure..

How could I touch you sweet..
How could I caress you in gyst..
How could I solely stare at you such..
How could I envelop you tight in warmth...

I truly am thinking of you..
Could it be our hearts chained to tune?
Do forget anyhow the dues..
Mindless the talk, It's you I choose..

Voice in the Night

How do I thank
The voice in the night?
Call of hope
After the world turned dark

How do I thank
The voice in the night?
Healing words
Made from
Angel heart

Oh, her chocolate whisper
Warm convincing breeze
Oh, her breathy laughter
In the shadow of my need 

Don’t you hear the voice?
Save  you from despair
Don’t you hear the voice?
Sent by ghosts who care

Don’t you hear the voice?
Rises like a prayer
Come to rescue you
From your earthly snare

How do I thank
The voice in the night?
Call of hope 
Kissed my tears away

How do I thank
The voice in the night?
Now I dance
To a magic serenade

Don’t you hear the voice?
Memories of home
Don’t you hear the voice?
Pretty as a poem

Don’t you hear the voice?
Vivifies your soul
Bathes you in a pool 
Love you’ve never known

How do I thank
The voice in the night?
Call of hope
After the world turned dark

Voice inside the darkness
Gets into my head
Lady caller,
Take me, take me
To your bed

Voice inside the darkness
Gets into my head
Lady caller
Raise me, raise me
From the dead

Voice inside the darkness
Gets into my head

THE BOOK OF KINDNESS AND LOVE

THE BOOK OF KINDNESS AND LOVE 

In the Queens' cloisters 
Lay a book 
A Book called Kindness and Love 
The greatest of them all 
For you cannot have Truth ,without kindness 
For you cannot have The Wise Way ,without love 

Such a book 
Resting on blue velvet 
Each page... 
Beaten gold 
Letters of jet 

This was a book 
More beautiful than the sky 
More magnificent then a castle 
Touched by a Heartstone 
Passed on by a hundred Queens 
A book , to learn by 

A page turned 
A new verse learned 
Pages turned for centuries 
Yet the book never ends 
Deep inside the message wends 
Kindness and Love 

I traced a verse, 
with a finger 
A strange warmth 
Whispered words 
Filled me 
Love too 
This is not magic 
It is love 
Felt by me 
Felt by you 

A Book of coloured sunsets 
Held in trust by the Queens 
On blue velvet 
A Book called Kindness and Love 
The greatest of them all 
For, you cannot have Truth, without kindness 
For, you cannot have the Wise Way, without love

You are my flesh and my bone

If I were to say you are a fallen angel
I'd be insulting you.
Complimenting you to be beautiful,
But evil in your ways.
Comparing you to a fruit tree,
That has a breath of a rotten fruit.
Taking you as a drug that gives me strength,
Only to lose it and die because of its effect.
Like Eve in the garden of Eden,
Instead of being a helper, she became a burden.
If I describe you,
I'd be giving myself glory.
Rather unite with me,
So that we can share the glory.
Angels serve us, so how can I make you my maid?
Man are higher than angels,
So are woman because they're from man.
If you came from my ribs,
Shouldn't I try to keep you and re-unite my body structure?
I have sown you,
And now I have to reap the all of you.
You are my flash and my bone, 
Ngizodla konke namathambo; 
just to get my strength back.
I am the glory of God,
And you are my glory;
Thus, the pleasure to the sense of my mind.
You are beautiful beyond words,
For you were not created by words like plants and seas,
But by my body; without you I'm incomplete.
You are an artist,
And art is your offspring.

The tragedy of Loki and Freyja

It happened in the world called Asgard
Never heard by human ears
The history of one heart, scarred
And moved by love and fear

It's the story of a liar
Loki was his name
His heart of ice catched fire
The goddess Freyja was to blame

But he failed to tell her
And she moved on alone;
Now listen to what occured
In front of mighty Odins throne:

At that time the gods assembled
To feast upon their victory -
Many goddesses hearts trembled
The cause was Lokis flattery

But beautiful Freyja, angered by this
Stood up and stopped the flatterer
Lokis pride got hurt and he hissed
And with terrible words, he hurt her:

"Why do I need to shut my mouth
When your legs are wide open?
Of all the people here I doubt
You'd find one whom you haven't loved then!"

And before anything could be spoken
He left; a lonely god again
The bonds between them were broken
A lie, told to hide the loving man

But even gods sometimes surrender
To a mighty enemy, love or regret
He still was drawn to the other gender
To the woman he couldn't forget

He arrived at her chamber
Thoughts of apologie on his mind
Just to learn that Odin sent her
To a location undefined

And Lokis world again was grey
As he cried into the wind
"Why did you need to take her away
Just because once I sinned?"

DRAMA OF LOVE

Skirts fly at will
Trousers move at a direction
Both have missions
And are attracted by each other.

When both meet at ‘twilight tale’
There’s always a ‘drama’
That goes with great passion.

‘Apples’ grow in ‘trees’
The ‘eyes’ behold the apple
With much eagerness to devour
But the apple is not willing to drop
Though ripe
For it has many admirers.

Looking at the apple with great passion
This apple I must pluck
I am stuck in the middle!

‘Spectators’ are many
All eyes are widened watching
All hands are widely opened waiting
For the apple to fall
In whose hands will it fall?

From being a spectator
I became a ‘player’
Now I’m in the game of passion.

As the game continues
So the passion whets
It’s a game one person must win
It’s all but a “drama of love.”

WIND AND LOVE

I sense your touch in the morning breeze
A hand so soft knows how to please
I'll lay here awhile, eyes closed I smile
I cherish your gentle, subtle style

I believe in you
I know you're there
Our connection felt
You're wings on air
Invisible
But there's no doubt
Heaven sent
Moving in and out

You chase the clouds so that I can see
The bright sun and all of earth's majesty
Then you bring the rain so life can grow
The rainbow comes.. wow, what a show

I believe in you
I know you're there
Our connection felt
You're wings on air
Invisible
But there's no doubt
Heaven sent
Moving in and out

Oh wind and love I never knew
That you are twins but it's so true

I believe in you
I know you're there
Our connection felt
You're wings on air
Invisible
But there's no doubt
Heaven sent
Moving in and out

ESPECIALLY FOR MAMA

Nine solid months of changes, you carried me
While I am in your womb, You take care for me
Your shape, I unshaped
Your stamina, I weaken

With every food you intake, I partake
With every emotions, I feel you too
With every movement, we both sway
With everything, together you and me

Mama, That I used calling you
Eight to how many hours you labor
That I do not specifically know now
All I know is that you love me so
(Mama, I love you too... )

Together, we go to window shops
Guiding me you never ever stop
To my heartbreaks, you, ready to mend
To my winnings, kudos, you always send

I love you my dearest mama!
Though I don't tell you this much
Evermore to your every touch, 
I am so deeply attach!

LOVE FOR MY FATHER

I sometimes sit and wonder, dad are you with me? and are you sad?
I think of the time I had with him here on earth
He was a this frail, little man who loved the Lord 
He certainly did all he could, he loved yellow for he stood out in a crowd
My dad was a wonderful person and friend
You just had to do for him, he was always so happy and never sad
To have some help from time to time, he loved you to come see him
He was a true man of God
He went to church and gave all he had
He never had extravagant things
He loved the basics of having furniture and clothes
When I gave him the rocking chair for Fathers Day in 2008,
Little did I know he was getting ready to leave this earth
I remember being so very happy to see, the smile on his face
When I would come near
The thing I am trying to express for all of us is  to love your fathers and
Give them your trust
For you never know that this little man from God in yellow 
He may still be sitting in the church he loved. 
I remember always my father he was, the light of my life and now he is with the
Lord above
Love your fathers and let them know that you truly love them so.....

The Repetition of Pain

my heart is bleeding
tears and blood dripping from insanity.

how cruel can life be 
so many drops of rain and still i find reality

it is so cold to be found
in a place where i never wish i would be

it is breaking me down
to the core of the earth that drives me out to what 

i want to be.

and i pray with my knees on the ground

my hands held up high 

because i dont want to say goodbye.
and i realised

i dont have a choice

and i seek and hunt for the dreams i wish

my head held up high

because this is who am i 
and i realised

i do have a voice

i will shout out loud
i will cry in pain
i will yell out loud
when my journey with you begins ..

i will scream out loud
i will take the pain
throw it away

and i will live a new day.

and i pray to God
i pray to Him

Please give me hope

Please give me strength 

to live for just another day

We Always Knew Better

Why did I fall for you,
Why did you fall for me,
That we could only be 
When we were together,
And we always knew better.

No promises were made,
None were broken,
No commitments for us,
No future to build thereafter
Because we always knew better.

You told me you always wanted, 
To be with me and be there
I wanted to be there for you too
Be together till we could be,
But we always knew better.

We spent hours together,
Talking about our future together
What it could be like for us
It would be beautiful and amazing
But we always knew better.

No expectations from each other,
Still wanted more from each other,
We tried our best to be together
for as long as we could be 
But we always knew better.

there is still some you

There is a cry in endless night
And question still as always why
There is a love in broken heart
It still resist to ever die
	
There is a light from moon and stars
To bring some light in empty eyes
What was my fault and guiltiness
I asked angels witness me

There is still time to wait and hope
And there still to do a lot
There is still God who holds all keys
There is still you I wish to kiss

There is a chance to broken heart
And I don’t know how it will come
But here still faith and truth and love
Beyond the darkness there is a light

There is still you and me, we both
There is still memories not lost
There is an never ending love
Which will find path to happy end

She held a handful of stars

These eyes bright 
Hair the colour of night 
Queen of starlight 

She held a handful of stars 
She tossed them far 
Scattering through, 
the midnight sky 

The star that landed on me.......... 
Was my destiny 
For this star, 
choose to be.............. 
the star for me 

Scattering through, 
billions of stars 
There is one waiting for you 

Glittering glow, 
from my chosen star so 
Scattered throught the blackest night 
This one, I won't let go 

This star 
So bright 
It came so far you see............. 
yes bright 
Hair the colour of night 

She held a handful of stars 
She held one for me 
The star she held................ 
Was my destiny 

One for me........ 
One for you........ 
Travelling too........ 
Such stars are meant to be.......... 

These eyes bright 
Hair the colour of night

You can crush me, beat me, call me out name

You can cheat, trick, remain to call me a *****
But in my heart I will remain rich
You can bounce me around like basketball
But you will not make me fall

Princess Angelina

Princess Angelina

Princess Tinsels baby daughter
Has grown up quite a bit
And my, oh, my, she’s beautiful
Oh, she has all of it
A heart of gold, a lovely form
And she’s so full of bliss
Her name is Angelina
So very sweet she is.

She has a way with animals
That seems at times like magic
She loves all people, all of them
And when their days are tragic
She’ll give them the milk of kindness
She has the healing touch
And even gnomes and bitter demons
They all love her so much.

Angelina, she is loved
By all who hear her name
Folk they come from miles around
To see this girl of fame
One day she will be their queen
And it is plain to see
That when she takes that station on
A wondrous Queen she’ll be.

Treasured

Love is not jealous, condescending, 
spiteful or malicious -

love is not ownership painful or  
always rightful. 
it does not scream, or burn or hurt,
Nor does it bellow disgraceful 
words.
  it is curious , it is wonder, it is a 
kiss that brings thunder.
   It is all things beautiful and full of 
wonder-
it is a word not yet been invented, 
as no words can grasp it's full 
meaning.
Love has no boundaries-
Nor will it founder by a few coarse 
words
Or foul In bad weather.

Love speaks no ill-
It is a void filled.
it speaks no haste
Nor care for popular taste.
Patience is one virtue
Love always speaks true

impossible to measure -
Love can be clever and should 
forever be treasured.
But never cruel, not ever

The toy collector

Toy collector:

He holds the bear gently in his old wrinkled hands as he gazes into its kind beaded eyes. The toy collector sees love lined in its double stitches and his childhood in the busted toys smile.

There stitched in black thread he can hear the sound of a child laughter, happiness, and growth reviving his memory of youth, like a jolt of life to an empty vein.

The years have passed freely, almost fleeting by. He had no more time to play in grassy school yards or hide from girls wearing satin dress, he had to grow up. The boy eventually turned into a man and was forced to pack away his toys regrettably into a wooden box.

There they sat in the attic awaiting the return of their beloved friend while he aged slowly into an adult.

High school came and went, college, even marriage but unfortunately he was never blessed with his own child. No one to share in the lined pleats of his own childhood. All of this he now recognizes in the bears sandy eyes.

The toy collector hands his most prized procession to his wife, a dazed look covering his forlorn face. 

She takes his withered hand and speaks gently in his ear.
“All the memories in the world could never replace the love between a man and his bear.”

“Yes, but even the toy collector eventually grows to old and must let go.”
He replies in woe.

His thin lips force a smile as he repacks the boxes that escaped him long ago and in the early morn of the next day he patently sits alone outside for a bus to come.

The driver honks her horn and greats him with a warming smile.
“Are all of these toys for our orphanage?”

The toy collector regrettably nods.
“Things have been pretty rough but this will surly lift there sprits up.”
She confesses as she gently grabs a random box.

As she stacks them one by on into the now cluttered van his bear falls onto the pavement below.

Unable to pick it up he wrinkles his brow with great sadness.
Suddenly the passenger door opens revealing the face of a young girl and as she draws near she extends her hand and clutches the bear.

“Did you find a friend little Lou?”

His heart melts as she kisses the teddy gently then smiles.
“thank you.”
The child coos softly.

The toy collector lives in the toys he collects, but the man lives forever in the bear the child now possesses.

YOUR FACE

It takes faith to believe, 
God really sees the poor;
Hears them crying out, 
Hopes and dreams for more.
This world's so insane..
But in a quiet place, 
I see my Abba Father's face;
His love for the lost and shamed,
And now I'll never be the same.

The Father's face gives faith to see
Through sacrifice I've been set free
To rescue others 'cause He rescued me
His hands and feet He made me to be

Its really hard to explain,
The pain and love in his eyes;
He gives me ears to hear,
Their restless, hopeless cries.
Now its all so clear..
I've been made His adopted son ,
The hope of Glory in me begun;
To care for the least of these,
I see your face down on my knees.

The Father's face gives faith to see
Through sacrifice I've been set free
To rescue others  'cause He rescued me
His hands and feet He made me to be

My Beautiful

She came in my life one year ago
Her eyelashes was long, so perfect, I know
She was the most Beautiful thing, I ever seen
And god had blessed her just for me

My first little girl, came home with me
She was smart, I could already see
She started to smile at everything
Her eyes would glow, and boy could she put on a show

Her personality was just like mine
And she would let me sleep at night,:)
Everyone in house really loved her
And she loved to play with her two older brothers

She is my new edition, and My Beautiful
                                            My Beautiful Little Girl

eternal love

Eternal Love. 
All those years ago it must be fifty gone
I still hear your sweet voice. 
Back then I didn´t know… how much 
I loved you… if you hear my heart beat now 
I´m so far away…will you remember me?
And if you do will you smile a secret smile 
and move your lips so I can see your 
the hidden tongue of love fulfilled? 
Lives’ beautiful harmony is given to me 
because I will always love you. 
In my mind I hear you whispering of love
and the promises we gave each other.
Now when the end is near I´m dying for 
your smile…please darling… remember me.

BRING LOVE NEAR

A fatherless generation, 153 million or more;
Abandoned and forgotten, Desperate and poor.

A prisoner to hopelessness, Everyday full of fear;
In this chaotic world they live in, Nothing is ever clear;
Could one soul make a difference.. If one could bring love near?

I've seen a thousand pictures, That can't escape my mind;
Children without futures, Special needs of every kind.

So much pain and suffering, And none of it makes sense;
Orphans weary and distressed, In the present tense;
So forgive me, my friends, if this sounds intense..

But I want to say it out loud, and make it clear;
We have to be doers, and not just hear.
We need to care, remove all fear;
Make a difference, bring love near!

Today precious babies, Are abandoned with Downs or HIV;
The world sees them as broken, they're unwanted and unfree;
But somewhere there's an advocate, Who refuses to let this be!

So they say it out loud, and make it clear;
We have to be doers, and not just hear.
We need to care, remove all fear;
Make a difference, bring love near!

In another country, That seems so far away,
A teenage orphaned princess, Is aging out today;
Someone needs to cry out, This tragedy is not ok.

So I'll say it out loud, and make it clear;
We have to be doers, and not just hear.
We need to care, remove all fear;
Make a difference, bring love near!

Will you say it out loud, make it clear
Make a difference, bring love near?

i wake

I wake up with no one to kiss and only then
do i remember that i need you so dear
living a life with out you drives me insane
and only my love for you is to blame.
Holding on each time i wake hopeing that
one day you will call with all this pain that
fills these walls with holes in my heart that
can never be sealed unless i wake up and
you are here.

Words of the heart

This is my first poem. Please tell me if I've made any stupid mistake.


"I wish you were sea

Flow in my heart

Just you can know that

You belong to me

Please give me a tree

I'll turn leaves to kisses

My heart is the sky

And you can freely fly

Or hide in my memory"

That's I want to say

But it's just in my heart

Like water under the sand

You will never understand

Oh! Fly my baby

To find your true love

I'm happy when you're happy.

Zero

I was born pale and invisible
In a world
Sees everything 
Everything, everything….but me

Invisible to your touch
And doubt you’ll like me very much
Am I alive?
Was I ever me?

I’m a non-existent cipher
A pointless empty zero
Never added up to anything
A non-existent cipher
Pointless empty zero
Tell me….what does it all mean?

And now I think I want you
Ethereal body
Oblivious mask
And now I think I love you
Intelligent lips
Painted in black

But no need to look my way
Or give me the time of day

Can’t be with you 
In this world
Invisible man 
Never gets the girl

Oh, no...

I’ll find where you are
And watch from afar
You will be felt by me

I’ll find where you are
And watch from afar
You will be loved by me

Your 
Zero 
Tonight
Your 
Zero 
For life
Your zero
The day I die

Your zero….your zero

When Love Comes

When Love comes to town

so the saying goes

flee will the foes

except the sad clown



Love is always in town

and out of town

in fact has left the building

right?



Love is in all places 

and nowhere at all

if you don't look

or lack the social graces



The sad clown is

a metaphor for you

for you are so blind

in your apparent happiness



Yet Love conquers all

gathers up the lost

when I am weak

Love does the most



(and so I must post)

Midnight Kisses

 Midnight Kisses

Walking side by side talking crazy
Yelling obscenities to the city
Not caring laughing out loud

Stop in our tracks
Softly kiss in the moonlight

Walking in the dark bumping hips
"What is on your mind?"
"Just happy to be in the moment"
Arm slips into yours

Stop in our tracks
Softly kiss in the moonlight

Talking about the wisdom of our ancestors
And hearing what the walls have to say
Wondering at the idiocy of architects

Stop in our tracks
Softly kiss in the moonlight.

Feeling your heartbeat against my hand
Running my fingers through your hair
You gaze lovingly  into my eyes

Stop in our tracks
Softly kiss in the moonlight.

FRIEND, A HEAVEN SENT

You are my friend..
Come show your hand
Memories we bot had
By gones still be a fad

You are my friend..
I will always understand
For you, I'll take a stand
Uncertain it maybe, no run

You are my friend...
I do not like ever to bend
Try and try we will mend
Love and care always ascend

You are my friend..
I will extend a hand
Even my life I will tend
From God, You are heaven sent

Lost and Found

To imagine after all this time that has gone by,
    I would be talking to the one that once caught my eye.
Out of nowhere one day she just seemed to appear,
   Just so incredibley surprising to me after all of these years.
Sharing all those thoughts and dreams we once had ,
   How we laughed at those days yet it made us a bit sad.
For the feelings I did not know she had for me ,
   It only makes me wonder what our lives would be.
Our hearts now beating as they did back in the days,
   How we are acting like children going out to play.
The love I feel for her has never felt so strong,
   A love that once was I thought was forever gone.
But to my excitement I can honestly & sincerely say ,
   The love that was lost has been found and here to stay.
This thing we have found in this love between you & me ,
   Joy and happiness for the rest of our lives is what I see.

JANUARY START OF NEW DAY

(1 January 2013 – 12:01AM)

By this first day of the year 2013
I am asking anyone to forgive me if I have things done that hurt you. 
I was sudden with the firecrackers
Sounds of bullets flying in the air
This is becoming a culture
That by the end and start of the year there shall be having a gun fire
Is this so not to put a gun as inutile?
I have no new year’s resolution at hand 
But I wanted to do my best to change whatever things needed to be changed. 
Oh God please witness my changes to manifest in my entire being 
from good to very good, from ordinary to extra ordinary and from evil to no evil. 
Let me love memories of 2012 that I have
Please forgive me God through everyone’s forgiveness.
I love everyone and someone. 
Thank you God!

Loosing A Child

It hurts very much,
When the one's you love,
Are ripped from your very life,
It makes you feel as if,
You are not up to being,
The person you should be,
In this dreary everyday world,
That can be so cruel.
So, think about how your life,
Is running it's very course,
And what changes you need to make'
To better your life,
In order to see the happiness,
Of keeping the beautiful thing,
You have created,
And brought into this very world,
So, you can keep this child,
Close to you in your life,
And watch it grow,
To bond with them each and everyday,
So, the child will never grow up,
knowing someone else,
As Mom and Dad,
Pushing you away from their life,
Till the day,
You will be totally gone,
From their hearts and minds,
Which is the sign of disaster all the way,
For it will be the hurt of a lifetime.

Jade

I would like naught but the chance to glimpse a glimmering shadow upon a sun streaked field, 

To find a place of darkening grace, that brings me to lucidity.
To hold and behold the essence of a thing that only kings had been able to wield.

To go beyond thought and embrace a thing that only Forever could comprehend,
To see within a light’s past and know that darkness had come before.

Skin of jade, and an angels smile,
 the touch of passion that you enfold,
You move like wind, and dance like fire, 
upon this landscape “my heart” you hold
Your thoughts are keeping, my deep secrets meaning, 
to put forth the light that you have shown. 
And in the eyes of umber gleaming, 
I see deep within its meaning, a solace no fable has told, 
so bring forth this, a hearing sacred, voice of resonance no string can fold.
And within this thought of heavens shadow, this ebony thing to me is gold

I have dreamt of you, in the darkest of night, and in the shadows I hear the calling

Darkness glimmers, a breath that shimmers to ring sound true a heart that’s falling

I love you

When light is off
And night is dark
When words to say
Is just inside
Then heart starts talking
Until you 
Will come
And listen
I love you 

When time is lost
And brain has gone
Emotions start t draw diagram
Then you will call
And say what is up
You know that
I am your best fanat

When you need money
You call me
You was so taught
Your lies so sweet

But really can I call it love?
No matter 
Maybe not at all
But heart is very stupid thing 
Can spoil all life
To be with you

And if or when you stumble or fall, 
you'll find yourself safe in my arms.

Empty castle

Silence seems my only comfort,
a loner in this world I stand
going only where i'm welcome
doing only what I can
to make my life lived
spent with meaning
still thoughts of caution
fear the feeling
of knowing I have been undone.

If ever I should lose myself
may it not be to isolation
but may it be to who you are
a gift given,and I have taken.
Let your heartbeat hammer
till the fall
of these cruel and coldstone
castle wall's
surrounding me at every turn
a lonely lesson life to learn.

im responsible for what I've done
none else should take the blame
but though i be accountible
may guilt not be all that remains
but also your welcoming heart
that tells me of a latter time
when these walls are nothing
but a remnant
of a lone kings reighn,
until his queen ascended
and made what was an empty space
a home at heart, a loving place.

the red wolf's speech revisited

If i could take your hand in mine
and get lost in your eyes
incompatible are we
yet perfect and it buys

me the time to drink in deep
assess my standing point of view
a wolf in the night, a thief in the dark
and always here for you

i gave you all i had 
and you took it willingly
a loving kiss upon my lips
in love and so is she

my vampire queen in a house of wolves
dominion over all
and yet i am the one she loves
and cherish standing tall

opposites attract
but then they always fade away
amythist rose, where did you go?
on my knees i pray.

feel like i cant wait
but ill just bide my time

waited all these years

rising up for me
you roll up that joint
and we will sit and talk while you smoke
in the late day sun
feels so fine

This Feeling

I don’t understand, this feeling inside. 
It’s so sudden and new.
I felt it first, when I laid eyes on you. 
Your face so fine, your eyes so kind. 
When you smile, my heart stops.
What is this feeling inside? 
Is it good? Is it Grand?
Its so sudden, its so new!

Just wait a minute,
time begins to pass, 
you break our dance as you turn you eyes. 
What is this feeling, 
so sudden and new?
I felt it first when you 
turned turned your back. 
My heart sank, as you stepped away.
I fear, we shall never meet.

My head begins to droop,
my eyes begin to tear.
Then a hand a feel on my shoulder. 
There you are smiling at me. 

What is this feeling? you ask. 
It’s so sudden and new.
I felt it first, when I laid eyes on you. 
Your face so fine, your eyes so kind. 
When you smile, my heart stops.
What is this feeling inside?

Love! I say. Its love.
I love you and you love me!
We kiss each other, and we are now complete. 
Until the end, I am yours and you are mine.

I LOSE NOTHING

I have no other option
Than to smile at your mind’s adoption.
Of what value is joy that leaves in haste?
Of sweet honey that gives a bitter residual taste?
Just know dear lady, I lose nothing
The thoughts of you shall soon be forgotten.

I have no tears to shed
Than to smile that our romance is dead.
Of what use is fake love
Of piercing nails hidden under the glove?
Just know dear lady, I lose nothing
I shall smile soon of a true love begotten.

I have this good bye song to sing
Than to wait for a joy you’ll never bring.
Of what use is popcorn love to man?
Of a monstrous head hidden under a turban?
Just know dear lady, I lose nothing
Because the feelings I have for you are now rotten.

Praying For The Day

I pray for the day,
That my sweet child comes home,
To my loving arms,
So, I can love and hold them tightly,
Each and everyday of their lives,
To be there for them and guide them,
As they learn to grow,
Into a wonderful adult,
That I know they will become,
For they have such a wonderful heart,
And as people will see them grow each year,
Learning along their way,
Having their own imagination,
To shine and guide them,
To be a very unique person of their own,
But they are already very different,
In many different ways,
By their looks and their loving heart,
And of course being very smart,
Their beauty will shine,
In many different ways,
Both inside and out,
And I pray for the day,
They will come home,
To stop these painful, loving tears.

JUST BECAUSE

A different time and generation 
No spoken words could say more 
When touch was not just a feeling 
You could be rich when you were poor

And a smile was like the sunrise 
Eyes could make time stand still 
Beauty was in the moment 
No ticket needed to have a thrill

You could court without a judge back then 
A date could be a Sunday drive 
Dreaming was done while awake
No need of power drinks to feel alive

Life wasn't techno managed 
Engagement could be a surprise 
Watermelon seeds and Double Cola 
On the Princess' hand a sparkling prize

Chocolate was more than candy
Boy or girl was discovered on delivery day 
Dinner meant more than eating
The outside world didn't get in the way

But these good ole days haven't disappeared 
On Francis Street they've taken pause 
Past and present seamlessly intertwined 
You can't explain it..
it's just because!

I'LL BE GONE

Is my voice a melody?
Did it make you want to hear more?

Is my touch a caring one?
Did it sent you quivering for sometime?

Is my smile that awesome?
Did it invite you to know me much more?

Is my scent alluring?
Did it attract you to have some more?

Are my footsteps a familiar tone?
that for sometime you hear alike you turn..

Are my thoughts an inspiration?
Did it brighten your day somehow?

Is my time spent with you that enough?
ThaT I have left you lots memories..

Is "JUST BEING MYSELF" leave you a mark?
So, You will miss me when I'm gone?

                                                       or broken heart---
                                                    I heed a call---

It hurts

Girl it hurts that I will one time brake up with you
And you will love another man too
You will give him that smile
The one you gave me every while
Your love will flow like the Nile
with him you will go an extra mile.

He will touch
He will smooch
give him that look u gave me
whenever I made sweet love to thee.

He will walk you
To the park just you two
He will hold your hands
Like we did hold hands
when your hands contact
you will give him that cool eye contact
like you did to me.

It hurts that all this will happen
But I'm not asking you back its not gonna happen
You decided to leave
for you strongly believe
we were not meant to be
You might be wrong baby
For what we had all along
was never at all wrong.

yes my heart is fragile and broken
for my love for you is never mistaken
you said i will not see you again
i am in pain
going insane
to lose this love
i will never have.

The Night She Fell in Love

The Night She Fell In Love 
It was a warm summer night 
and she was walking along the shore. 
The moon was full and shining bright;
she couldn’t have asked for more.  
This was the summer night 
when she fell in love. 
With the moon shining bright
from its place high above. 

As she walked along the sand, 
she gazed up at the stars.  
Music floated from a nearby band
that was playing in one of the outdoor bars.
This was the summer night 
when she fell in love. 
With the moon shining bright
from its place high above. 

Oblivious to her surroundings, 
she bumped into a young man. 
Her heart began pounding
and she got up and ran. 
This was the summer night 
when she fell in love. 
With the moon shining bright 
from its place high above. 

Her palms began to sweat, 
and she was breathing hard. 
That man had been no threat, 
but she let down her guard. 
This was the summer night 
when she fell in love. 
With the moon shining bright
from its place high above. 

Her mind kept straying 
back to that young man. 
Her skirt began swaying 
just as a summer breeze began. 
This was the summer night 
when she fell in love. 
With the moon shining bright
from its place high above. 

She began to ponder
why she liked that young stranger.
It was some wonder 
that she sensed no danger. 
This was the summer night 
when she fell in love. 
With the moon shining bright 
from its place high above. 

Turning around, her heart began to flutter. 
The handsome lad
was standing in front of her. 
She suddenly felt glad. 
This was the summer night 
when she fell in love. 
With the moon shining bright 
from its place high above. 

They talked for a while
talking in a friendly way.
After they had walked a mile, 
they promised to meet the next day. 
This was the summer night 
when she fell in love. 
With the moon shining bright 
from its place high above. 

It was a night to remember 
because of its importance. 
She will forever treasure
their very first dance. 
This was the summer night 
when she fell in love. 
With the moon shining bright 
from its place high above.

Ceramic Silver Swans

As the sun sets over the mountains,
And the stars light up the skies,
Evening dewdrops glisten
And light the diamonds in your eyes.

Rivers they carry the shimmers
Of the moonlight dancing free.
Like ceramic silver swans they swim,
Carrying you to me.

Passion knows no boundaries,
And love can tell no lies,
As my desires light the fires that burn,
Underneath those starry skies.

And from tonite until forever
May we never be apart.
While the angels pave the pathways
As I dance into your heart.

SHE WAS FOR HIM

She Was For Him.

She knew no one else
desired no one else
required no one else
She was for him.
Her interest never wandered
cared not who or whom was 
also astounded by her beauty
never cared to do more 
than look her best - just for him
whomsoever caught a 
glimpse by chance 
would find her eyes
gazing up at him.
She was oblivious to better 
looking on lookers,
that stared and drooled;
Her body was for him
only for him. He knew this
and he gave her the world.
Because he was also 
made just for her.

My Morning Dew

If I had luck with a guitar
I would pluck you a gentle tune 
If I had been blessed with a soothing voice
I would play you the sweetest melody

I would carve you an effigy of love
If my hands were humbled with the Skillman ship of a sculptor
I would your statue place at the centre of my town
With the sweetest caption known to the statue race on it

I would with the brightest colours, to reflect your charming smile,
Paint a portrait of your beautiful face
If the gods had favoured me with a painter’s talent
I would hang your Mona-Lisa like portrait in all the museums in the world

I would dare the fires of Mordor
Just to mold you the most glistening pieces of jewelry
The purest of a golden ring with the biggest diamond
A Hollywood girl would forever dream of I would make you

Or I would bring you the freshest roses
The smelliest of their kind
If only I had enough to have my own orchard
I would grow you pink and red roses in my back yard

I would stuck you a pile of riches in your pillow case
Then I would surprise you to open it when you wake
That would be if I had a good fortune
To spoil my honey dew with abundant life

But I am a frog with a guitar
My hands are too weak for a sculptor
A blind man would outshine me at a game of paint and brush
The fires of Mordor, ho! I wish the Hollywood supermodels would envy your golden ring
But I would never muster enough bravely to dare the ever blazing flames
I would indeed collect the sweetest pink and red roses
But I lack even my own daily bread to own an orchard
That goes even for the fortune I wish I would surprise and spoil you with

I however have muse’s abundant gifts in my quill
Thus with it I scribble you this poem
To soothe you my honey
To pluck you that tune from my virtual guitar
To carve you the effigy of love
And paint you the Mona Lisa of your own
To endow me with the courage to dare the furnaces of Mordor
And bask in the fountains full of rose’s red and pink
For in my virtual world I have all the riches to spoil you with
And with muse’s gift I with this quill
Scroll you this piece my morning dew

My Wonderful Love and Me

My Wonderful Love and Me

We met by the sand and the sea
My wonderful love and me

We sat on the sand by the sea
My wonderful love and me

We played in the waves of the sea
My wonderful love and me

The sun shone on us both at the sea
My wonderful love and me

We married there down by the sea
My wonderful love and me

We built us a house by the sea
My wonderful love and me

Our family grew with us there by the sea
My wonderful love and me

Years passed for us there by the sea
My wonderful love and me

Illness took her away by the sea
My wonderful love from me

Now I sit here alone by the sea
Sad that she’s taken from me

I think how we met by the sea
How happy we both seemed to be

I remember our times by the sea
Memories now only for me.

My Sweet Indulgence

sail away with me my swet indulgence
where we can be alone
we'll paint our names in mid air
because with our love
we can do anything
we'll run together on mountain tops
we'll leap from the tallest hills
we'll dwell in the bottom of the sea
then emerge into space
my love..my lover...my sweet indulgence

Hearts On Fire

Everything she did desire
He had, he was
So one night she looked to a star
And now her Heart's On Fire

His world too, was on a wire
Wanting her so bad, but not knowing how
Though he's sure it's her he dreams to wow
Burning desire, he feels too, his Heart catch Fire

Hearts On Fire just can't see, they don't know
Too blinded by feeling 
While not fast to show
So Hearts On Fire just keep reeling...

Together they could burn so much brighter
Faithful they'd be, and treated right
Candles dimly lit, they softly glow in the night
In the dreams of those with Hearts On Fire

So what is it then, that's keeping them apart?
United, together they'll fly forever
But apart, oh how they'll surely die
And Hearts On Fire are hard to stop...

Resonating

A chord, not unkind,
resonates permeates
within my spirit.
I blend with this vibration
shaking quaking with desire
while each note takes me higher
to the sun drifting low in the sky.
Under the pink and reds of sunset do I stand.
Attentive to each stroke you land.
Right on cue.
I laugh in delight
to gaze out at the world anew.
Breathing the fresh air,
I listen to the birds croon,
while the leaves sway to the tune.

Glorious earth!
Filled with such abundance,
Life flowing
dancing, growing up under us.
The ocean plays the strings,
music to my soul,
my heart sings.
I wonder why
anyone would cry
unless they didn’t hear
life’s great chorus
as love draws near.
Nothing should I fear.

Until the dark sky
blocked the distant light.
All turned quiet.
I couldn’t breathe.
I began to drift too deep
forgetting the chord
falling asleep.

Forever should I have remained
unadorned, unsung,
locked up tight.
But for the distant melody
heard one night in my dreams.
I found company
and I was led to be free.

So many reasons I have to adore
hearing his music
his vibrational chord.
Out loud, up high,
standing tall, he played.
Patiently waiting
peacefully playing
reaching further
than others kneeling.

Should I not love such strength
guiding me
loving me
playing my life on a fiddle
whittling away the rough edges
revealing a riddle
maybe a middle
road or path to take?

Yes, this is the chord that vibrates.
Life’s about loving
all for one one for the other.
The chord that I play
follows this song.
And as I stand under the sky,
this time it’s dawn,
violet hues appear above my head.
I feel strong.
And, all I can do,
is play my song
and love who comes along.

Love gone wrong

Glass shattered-
the bottles melting
that green-eyed feeling overcoming-
but the cause of it was you.
You're wandering eyes neglect me
while you pretend to look away
but I see right through those pretty brown eyes
and you definitely don't want to stay
I'm that safety net-
to a person who's my world
and while you
poke at my eyes
laugh at my fits
I know your real girl
and she's not the person you've been with
for a year now coming up
instead i'm just a distraction
trying to become better than you've had
but you can't even see that
I'm psycho- that's all there is to it
but remember when i'm gone
and realize my worth
that you were really nothing-
but a lesson gone wrong
a lesson that was supposed to relieve the grief
a lesson of love gone wrong

Isolation

How can I tell you?
I can't stay with you.

Neither I can give up on you.
Fear of losing you is losing me.
It feels like slow death every night.

But we are just stuck in our spaces!
Unable to connect from two feet distance.

LAST NIGHT

Last night I saw you there
You stood out in the crowd
Memories of what we had
The feelings were so loud
Remember me touching you
The thought will never fade
And I imagined..

It was our first time
Eyes met, stars aligned 
We danced, life rhymed
Made love, so sublime

I got busy chasing success
The rat race was pulling me
No longer saw what was best
Blinded by greed and money
And so subtly, I just let you go
Traded love, lost my song
Of sweet memories when..

It was our first time
Eyes met, stars aligned
We danced, life rhymed
Made love, so sublime

God knows I need a change
Something's stirring in the air
Since I saw you the other night
Seems I sense you everywhere 
What if lightning struck twice
What if magic could really be
What if we could start over
Oh Baby, please tell me..

This could be our first time
Where eyes meet, stars align 
And we dance, life rhymes
Making love, so sublime

Loving You

I think of you throughout the day,
Then far into the night.
I think of you though far away,
I wonder at your light.

You outshine all, none can compare;
With beauty so divine.
I cannot see another face,
My darling love you're mine.

I hope and pray we'll grow so close,
To where we're one in thought.
I dream of such a precious day,
You are the one I've sought.

I never want to lose you dear,
I want you by my side.
That's what I dream of through the day,
My heart so wants to glide.

Remember now I care for you,
To bring you near I'll try.
I'll give you love that's from my heart,
Together we can fly.

The Light

Two and sixty days ago —
Two months, or so I'm told —
I wandered, wistful, without cause,
Through a memory of old.

A hall of walls I wandered, tall,
As tall as tales I could weave,
But none as tall as this regale,
A story that you won't believe.

I walked near endless hours,
My only friends the cobblestones,
Ringing in my steps the sin
That only time atones,

When upon that pallid plaster
I did spy a shocking sight:
Upon that place's rocky face,
The wall had turned to light.

"Curious," I cooed and questioned,
Calm as I could never be,
"Perhaps it might be that this light
Is rightly mine, I see?"

And as I pondered that hall I wandered,
A chilling change I never chose arose:
That light so rife with delight and fright
Began to open, and I froze,

For that particular portcullis I pondered
Put me in a vice.
I nary noticed that walls in focus
Had changed into a hall of lights.

Transfixed, the light engulfed me so,
As slow as my bewildered head
Could comprehend the candid land
I planned my final stand in dead.

I whizzed through spaces, unknown places,
In stasis from the faceless force
When finally I fell, the frenzied light
Still tight from an unseemly source.

All at once, those two months
Became a fraction of a wink;
The frost was lost as I was tossed
Among the lights of what I think.

And where else would I find myself
But in this courtyard we call love?
My journey never left my head,
Nor bed's unconscious dreamland hub.

Two and sixty days ago,
I heard these words so true,
And in the dark they were my light:
You told me "I love you."

To Love Is To Really Live

I ask him often
What Do you think
What do you feel
When our bodies sync
What feelings do you get 
When i stare in your eyes
When we are laying close
Do i make your heart rise
When i massage your neck
What do you feel
When i kiss your ear
Is your excitement hard to conceal
When i press against your chest
Do i ignite a volcano in you
When we make love
Does your love start anew
I ask this and wonder
Because this is how i feel
Every time your near me
My passion i can't conceal
It's like you bring out things
I never knew were there
And you've helped me 
To realize that what we have is rare

DAD

DAD....

If only we could have you back dad
Just for one more day
To hold you in our arms once more
Before you went away

To tell you how we love you
How we know you loved us too
How no man in this world
Will ever take the place of you

Dad you were our anchor
Our rock, our shining knight 
The man we all depend upon 
And love with all our might 

Always we will picture you
Sitting in your chair
Coffee, paper, football...
How we wish you were still there

Whenever you were told
Another grandchild’s on the way
The frown upon your face 
Spoke the words you’d never say

But when each newborn grandchild
In your loving arms was placed
The look of unconditional love 
Was there upon your face

Precious memories linger
And tears will gently flow
For the granddad with the sweets
For the Granddad who never said no

Always there for each of us
You always made us smile
And knowing we were happy
Seemed to make your life worthwhile

You filled our lives with happiness
We filled your heart with pride
But now we walk this unknown path
Without you by our side 

Those who never met you
Will feel they know you too
For part of you will live in us
In everything we do

Forever we will miss your voice
Your laugh, your smiling face
Forever we will miss the dad
We never will replace

It’s hard to let you go dad
For we never said goodbye
Now you’re an Angel in God’s Heaven
High above the sky

But sometimes when we’re all alone
And feel all hope is gone
I know we’ll hear you whisper
"Kids just smile...and carry on”...


We love you dad...
Always have...
Always will...

What Did You Dream Last Night

I blow my Saxophone strictly for the pleasure...Its my gift from God one of my many Treasures.
      Took care of all eight of my children; Some have college degrees.....I take things
like they come,never hard to please.  Took care of my dear ole dad tho he neglected me.
Used to steal moonshine,to help my ole granny.  Long ago I did that stuff, myself still a
boy. No small stuff do I sweat ,No strangers have I met. Work hard,hard play,moving
obstacles out of my way.I love my wife, I love my life "Hey what did you dream last night!
God I love my music:My music I love by God! Seventy years old I am,still working in the
mines.  "Hey what did you dream last night" When he hits the number he's doing what God ask...doing what God loves,sharing and caring; Blow David ...Blow Your Horn,against all odds,against all adversaries. What a good brother! Hey that's my husband! Hey that's my dad!..Hey that's my uncle Dave,loving his own and others. Passion is his saxophone. He said to write a poem,especially for him..I call him uncle Dave, you see,but he's really a GOOD FRIEND! 

                                                     End poem
Dave ask me to write this Poem

..he's amazing! And he is still working in the salt mines,playing his saxophone,playing
numbers,and house painting on the side..And asking what you dreamed.

The Perfect Woman

An honest smile and truthful eyes
A road slinger who loves a surprise
A worker who dreams of the world
Needs the road and loves a whirl

Understands my past and hers
Comfortable with herself in showers
Loves good vibes and the bad
Appreciates the love and even the sad

Wants more to life than bottom line
Takes a random hint as a sign
Embraces silence for it is rare
Take a chance, perfect woman, if you dare

What He Said To Me

I will take you there, if he is not doing you right
That's what he said to me, when he touched me gently
I am no fool, and I am a good man, I will take care of you, the best I can
I will show you love, and be there when times are tough
I will show you the real meaning of trust

It don't matter how you look to me
As long as you love back honestly
Your eyes are the prettiest I ever seen
You wouldn't be my woman, you would be my queen
So would you allow me to be your king


It was the most beautiful thing I ever heard
And it touched a special part of me
Them words he said to me

BEAUTIFUL LOVE

Like a rose flower your face blossoms
Across your face in a beautiful smile.
In the dreams you come again and again
And in reality you move my heart.
I closed my heart more than once,
But you found a way to open the door.
It is your love that keeps it going,
And in every heart beat memories lingers.

With each breath of life I live for you,
With every strength I guard your love,
To keep it safe in my heart forever.
In the light of the moment I grasp,
For the little chance to make you happy.
It is your love that matters my love,
Even when the world turns against me,
To crucify me and leave me dead,
You make my life a smiling joy.

My love, my hope and my joyous tune,
Is all am singing with a smiling heart,
As I ponder about the greatest love,
Which makes my colorful world turn,
Taking me on a journey to tomorrow,
Where my destiny leads me to love,
That opens a brighter window of hope,
And a melodious tune of a love ballad.

Every day I swim in a pool of love,
Waking up from a night of better sleep,
Dreaming the dreams of a wonder queen,
A queen who’s glitters shine like diamonds,
Holding my hand walking side by side.
In a forest with colorful flowers like roses.
I pluck one and hands it to her,
As I get lost in sweet kisses of an angel,
After an emotional moment on my knees,
Asking my queen, will you marry me?

BERNARD WACHIRA.

For You

For which do I owe this pleasure 
Oh this blessed day be 
Recite the bird’s melodious song 

Greet this sleeping man from dreams 
Engulf me with his arms 
Or keep him in his slumber 
Ripples of light cascade him 
Grinning across his heaving chest 
Even the corners of the room 

Are curved into a snicker 
Let him arise to the sight 
Waiting impatiently I am
And fidgeting by his side 
Your damsel in distress 
So open your eyes 

And Great this glorious day
Not now is the time for waiting 
Dreaming of you can no longer suffice 

For I want to spend each tender moment 
On this ship of two lovers sail 
Remembering why we fell in love 
Even if we already did it twice 
Visions of this memory lane 
Entice me to stir you even more 
Read between the lines you handsome boy 

                Now wake up!

THIS IS INDEED LOVE

This is beautiful world
A den we live in good
And this is my heart
A chamber I put you at

I never surrender await for you 
The dawn and the dusk came and go 
Now I found you I won’t let you go
The day you left silent me in sorrow

The world is not crazy
Those lonely days were laid for me
I crossed the high bridge of grief
I longed the days we simply missed

You let me feel no alone
Your presence is my own
You never let the sun down
You are the moon I head on

If you need the eyes to cry
I’ll lend you my tears to try
If you want me to fly
Let me adore you by

I love you everyday
Never any word to play
A replacement to this someday
I love you until grey. 

Don’t ever let it go again
Don’t try to leave me then
Don’t forget you are my given
Don’t let this love suffering...

My Wife is in Love With Another Man

She said it, yesterday,
That she is in love
With a


Wonderful
Wondrous
Resourceful
Reliable
Happy
HOT
Man

Ironically, it did not breed in me
A feeling of:

Resentment nor
Ravenous-ness nor
Jealousy nor
Jeopardy nor
Betrayal nor
Bitterness.

Because I was the other man
A transformed soldier of my wife

Give Me a Shot

As soon as I walk in, 
you walk right up to me;
And I know what I want, 
but you ask me what I need.
I know you're just doin' your job, 
and I'm just doin' mine,
but I cannot help but wonder if you're open, come closin' time.

There aren't many people, 
with whom, I get along;
And there are even fewer, 
for whom, I'll write a song,
but you like to hear me sing, 
and I like to watch you pour.
I wonder if there's something that we both would like much more.

Hey, bartender.  Would you wait on me?
I guess I'll just have to wait and see. 		
But I don't care if it's last call or not - 
Hey, bartender.  Would you give me a shot?

Let's make a toast:  To making the most of most.
Let us not look to see.  What will be, will be.

So, when you close out my tab,
and I ask for one more thing;
And say, "Could you call me - a cab?" 
'Stead of "Call me in the morning."
'Cause I don't wanna go too far, 
but I don't wanna go without; 
So, if I am where you are, 
please, bartender, don't close me out.

Sir Archibald and the Black Knight - Part 1

Let me sing you a tale, a story of old,
Of a man without fear, of a knight brave and bold,
He sought out adventures, whenever they called,
And the name of this knight was Sir Archibald.

Whilst out riding his horse, a steed of great power,
He saw in the distance a creepy old tower,
At the top of this tower lived a pretty young maid,
Who was cold and was lonely and longed to be saved.

“Oh Sir Archibald, won’t you please rescue me?
I’m stuck in this tower and there’s nowt on TV.
I’m forced to stay in here, and wash all these socks,
While the evil Black Knight holds the keys to the locks.”

Sir Archibald loved the maiden so fair,
With her glittering eyes and her long golden hair.
“Of course I will save you!” was the knight’s brave reply,
“Or at least I shall give it a jolly good try!”

Sir Archie rode onwards, as fast as he could,
Until he came to the edge of the wood,
And there stood before him a terrible sight,
The tall, strong and mighty, the evil Black Knight.

The Black Knight was massive, someone to be feared,
With a scar on his face and a huge tatty beard,
Our villain’s description is only complete,
When we mention his dark eyes and big smelly feet.

“What do you want?!” called he with the big booming voice,
Of a man you’d avoid if were given the choice,
“You’ve got a young girl there, who you must set free.
Let her go now, or else answer to me!”

GOOD BYE ELUSIVE LOVE

I said goodbye to you in a dream,
But in reality I had to walk away.
This love was like an elusive bar of gold,
I was trying to hold in my hands.
Memories and a shadow of my love,
Is what I am trying to hold on to,
To have the feel of you close again.
	
To me your love is like the fog and the mist,
That I am trying to grab with my hands.
I see you disappear into the dark night,
But in the horizon I see a love sign in red.
When I try to get closer and closer to it,
The horizons seems to move far and far,
It is like I am chasing my own shadow 

If I had to travel to space and get you a star,
I would have gone and plucked one for you.
To me I have tried to live my sweet dream,
But the dream was over before starting.
Every morning was a morning of hope,
But the elusive love dwindled with hopes,
And brought pain to my tender heart

I felt a faint heartbeat of a broken heart,
Crying tears of a love it never had. 
Moment after moment, day after day,
Wishing you only gave it a drop of your love.
Just like heaven and earth can never meet
So is our hearts never got together as one.
For your elusive love kept fading away,
Just when I thought I was getting closer.

Within the sanctuary of my loving arms

Let the warmth of my warm
Tender loving arms
Sooth your cares away
To make you feel special
Needed Loved
Let me give an ear
for the things you want to say
A safe sanctuary
In which time stands still
and you can hide away.

The warm waves of  my love
Flow like a caressing tranquil sea
Let me express my deep emotion
Without word
and lose ourselves
In our world
No one else knows
Can travel too
Or be.

And as our hearts bloom
and flourish with so much joy
Like the smiling sun
Love is the greatest victory
When two hearts and minds
Are one.

Tell me the story of the sweetest love
That I see deep within your dreamy eyes
And no matter if I look at them a million times
still they always take me by surprise.


The wondrous vivid colours that I see
Awaken something  beyond words
deep within  inside me
That sometimes makes me cry
With joy and thanksgiving
Because  the biggest surprise
That I can see
That blows my mind
Is that you love a man like me.

I miss you

I miss you,
I miss the warmth
In your sheepish eyes,
That unblinking look of holiness

I miss you,
I miss the sparkle
Of that breathtaking smile
That sent my heart racing for miles.

I miss you,
I miss the honesty
On your saintly face
Always promised me an old age of caress.

I miss you,
I miss the oneness
Of our last embrace
How I wish it can resurface.

I miss you,
I miss you
I miss you
Yes, I do

The fire and ice

Always on the outside looking in
Alone and lonely though surrounded by
Never really letting anyone in
No man could ever warm her heart

That is till he walked in
Blue eyes of ice
met brown eyes of fire
She saw a tornado there

With arms of the wind to quiet the fire
The volcano became aware
True love is more than rare
Two old souls had met on a dare

Explosions have erupted
And crushing winds have blown through
But her love has only grew
Something she never knew

Once a free spirit
Now bound by the wind
She waits for her man 
To blow in again

Loving Peanut

When you entered my life
I found a new kind of love,
One which I could not ever deny,
Oh how it fills me up!

Oh yes, I love you Peanut!
I long for your touch,
You're all I can think of,
Oh how you make me sigh!

Now married, man and wife,
To an angel from above,
Yes I dream of you every night,
I love you oh so much!

I'll be ever yours Peanut,
I need your gentle touch,
Just hold me close, Peanut,
For the rest of all time!

Now for years you've been mine,
Filling my life with your love,
Poetry just could never describe,
The power of your love!

And so thank you, my Peanut,
For all that you have done,
A life loving Peanut,
What a wonderful life!

LOVESONG TO AN ALASKAN FISHERMAN

LOVESONG TO AN ALASKAN FISHERMAN

If tame you want 
Tis fool you’ll get
In fishing North high seas
But if you go a trolling
And you catch a fish like me
Prepare for love ---prepare for war
There’s not a moment’s peace
And you’ll forget flushed one nightstands
And follow schooling breeze

Oh-- I had loved you mighty
Knocked the pluck right from your chest
Gave you babes and warmed your nights
And wove your babes a nest
And fool you were to throw back in
A love that topped them all
But one last chance awaits you here
To heed bold Nature’s call

So head inland and fight the gales
That plague this stormy sea
Think of love that grabs your guts---
There is no fish like me.

SUN AND MOON DANCE ballad

THE SUN AND MOON DANCE        V Anderson-Throop  2013, June 

 A sky-borne swan
 on the wing
I  face true North
when it is Spring
Forget sore wings
or broken heart---
I heed a call---
tears me apart


No sweeter sky
that soars the mind---
 when sun and moon
 Dance side by side

North Summer nights---
the white nights call---
there is no time
to fret or stall---
no excuses, no one to blame
in heading North
There is no shame.


=======================
Chorus:
Thru White nights dance
both sun and moon
no lover's parting 
Arrives too soon

In icy Spring
 Like Grandma's broom
The white night's sweep
Life into bloom

Midsummer night
Snow-dark has fled
And time has flown
My True Love's bed.

 Over these mountains
Like Grandma's broom
The white night's sweep
Life into bloom--

 Thru White nights dance
both sun and moon
no lover's parting 
arrives too soon.

===================
 Hang on tight--
If you dare
Travel light,
for it is far.
Come,  Darlin' Love,
 share this delight
No thrill soars past
My white North Nights

imagine time
that never ends---
 bodies entwined---
eternal blend

 CHORUS

In The World Of Hell

Born in night to Dhore and Ghore,
Lots of roar he was to make,
Taught with those the best they had
Fought and won the best of bad,
Turned to red then black and blood,
flooding bones of hellish beasts
mighty prince thus conquered hell.
'Prince Devil' they called him thus
sirens roar to send him down
Into earth with evils blood.

Bright and light have seen fire,
not this prince, they haven't yet!
All of hell had bowed him thrice,
every good he split then slice ,
Walks earth in men and women,
Making evil with each spell.
mighty prince grew fast in fame,
lots of hearts he turned to war
After gold, they led their heart
As men he touched felt no good.

From among men, fed by then,
He placed his steps for a walk,
Saw no man for long a way
Went so mad with not a ray,
A sight of light, far in night,
Then drew him close to its height,
Not light, but a girl there stood,
Seeing her, he dreamed a life,
Human life with her in it,
But late he was far to reach.

Not a king, but king of kings,
Will he be in days to come,
Orders came to steal her light,
with dark sufferings, true fright.
Tried too hard but failed with heart,
Across he stood against dark,
Earthly love then bound the prince
Hell's world was flared in anger,
Evil dark, the king of kings,
proclaimed war against the prince.

No demon, no prince, she knew,
nor he was, from where she knew
Fought his heart in best of hells,
Days, nights, in his world and else,
blackish blood smoked with fire,
Blew from hell with smell, desire,
The prince of love, fought so brave.
killed he was, in deadly war,
Hell and heaven, barred his soul
for crimes done in all the world.

If I only had a chance

If I only had a chance
To show you how I feel
You would surely know
That my feelings are real

It would only take a minute
To move upon your heart
And look into your eyes
Knowing I'll always do my part

Just to whisper in your ear
while holding you close to me
saying we're made for each other
like we are suppose to be

Just for my dear friend
I want to put you in a trance
And really blow your mind
If I only had a chance.

My Heart's Desire

My Heart’s Desire

Upon the sea alone I sail
A lonely ship of dreams 

You sailed away without me
Love eludes me it seems...
And I am very frail

If I could make time stand still
If I could make you mine
Then time would be my friend 
Life would be divine

But here I stay
Stuck in the mire
And there you are 

My aching heart’s desire

Chance Meeting

It was on a dusty mountain crest one night that she stood,
wondering if the world around her retained any good.
She had lost her father.  She had almost lost her mind.
Thereafter she lost her job in the jungle most unkind.
But, it was up there that she saw him at that dusty peak.
It was love at first sight, though they would hardly speak.
He held her in his arms for the longest long time.
She kissed him on the cheek, though it might have been a crime.

And so, on that rocky mountain top the two there would stand-
two new found lovers - stood silent, hand in hand.
Gazing into the star lit night, darkness still on high,
filled with amazement, they breathed in a sigh.
They never wanted the time they had there to end.
Perhaps on a shooting star home a note they could send.

But, what would they tell their families? What could they say?
Would people understand them?  It was this they did pray.
And so, it was on that peak that they built their small home-
vowing to each other from there never to roam.
And they're living there happily together to this day.
At least that is the rumor.  It's the buzz that they say.

My Gull Wheels On

As a child empowered by youth, 
All is wonder, 
All is truth, 

Faith projecting as a wake, 
A child of God, 
Runs free these days, 

Oh Lord, I have been so blessed, 
To know your love, 
Feel your caress, 

Now I watch as the children play, 
And loving tears swell, 
...Thank you for this day. 

To feel the warm sun, wind and sand, 
A glorious gift, 
A glorious plan, 

Watch the seagulls as they wheel and dive, 
Searching for scraps, 
Screeching in delight, 

Never do they question - nor do they ask, 
For more than they need, 
Or more than they have, 

And in this spirit so free and strong, 
I live, learn and love, 
As my gull wheels on!

He's My Hero- SONG 3

He might be just a photograph,
but I know he's more than that despite
what people say.
His love and words are stronger than steel,
the distance won't make me stop loving him.

He's strong, always pushing on, 
Never looking back.
He left the things and ones he 
loves behind knowing
this might be the last time
and he's mine
HE'S MY HERO

To feel his embrace, to listen to his voice, 
to hear his breath.
I don't care about the consequences
I just want to be with what's
Mine
'till he can't stay anymore.

When he has to be strong, and push on
trying his hardest not to look
back.
He left his life and the one he
loved behind knowing
that this could be the last time
but he's mine
HE'S MY HERO

I can't sleep at night, knowing he's
out there, somewhere. 
Is he safe?
How can I pray?
Oh, GOD, please bring him home!
I can't live without him.
Just bring him home 'cause

I don't know how I can stay strong
and push on
as he's watching his and his brothers' backs.
He left the one he loves at home
knowing there's that
chance. 
But he's mine.
And I don't care about anyone else
'cause
HE'S MY HERO

Hear my prayer...
          Bring him home...
Distance won't stop my love...
I just want to be with him...

He's strong, still pushing on
No longer looking back.
He's back to the things and ones he
left behind knowing
he's back to stay.
And he's mine.
HE'S MY HERO

He's Mine...

         HE'S MY HERO...

Tomorrow is postponed

My days of walking on the moon are over
I've put away my cape and belt
I'm done with saving dying planets
Just let the Polar ice caps melt

Let all the oceans rise
Let toxic waste fall from the skies
Let endless rain Reign endlessly

Let rivers burst their banks
Let floods of tears swell the ranks
And form a mighty Tsunami

Then let it all come down my street
Let it all burst through my front door
It still wouldn't fill this hole in me

'cos until you come home tomorrow's postponed indefinitely
can't move from this spot I think they're messing around with gravity
Just answer your phone and i'll make this right now you'll see
'cos until you come home tomorrow is postponed......indefinitely

WHO WILL

On solid familiar fertile ground
My humbled set of feet stand
I work diligently avoiding demand

Total Independence, I tried and found
Trials and problems, I did mount
Indeed like a boxer, I pound and been pound
A fight not in ring but on land

There are teardrops in my eyes
There are laughter and smiles you saw
There are shoutouts I said in law
There are memories I leave raw

Who will come to cherish these?
Who will come to pass these?
Who will come and do the same?
Not for money, power or fame

Waiting for My Love

I waited for her with tears in my eyes
and stayed until I couldn’t see the stars
at last to bed I went with my face in gloom
so sad and melancholic i cried in my doom
I long for my love in my arms
and for that i could give all my treasure for alms

the second day i resume my waiting for my lass
again all day i waited and absented from class
but no shadow could be seen coming my way
no one came to be with me, to stay
heartbroken, i went home downcast
my mind blank with no news of its own to broadcast

she had promised to come again
to be with me and start a new future again
I could remember her last kisses
the way she laughs and teases
I could see love burning in her eyes
but now she is gone, for miles

without her my life was unstable
I was so clumsy, haggard and uncomfortable
where could she be at this time
without her by my side, my sun will never shine
and so to God I did solemnly pray
that she couldn’t have been trapped as prey

I was always at the road as each day passes
waiting for her without any lapses
I could be seen waiting
and on and on I kept waiting
I never felt like giving up
because she once gave me a silver cup

say’ Michael never give up on me’
so I never gave up waiting for her
I waited and waited and waited
till now am still waiting,
waiting for my love.

The Story Of Love

He liked her,
She liked him
He looked back,
She looked back,
But she wanted a different him,
So he looked away, sadly,
Wanting to talk to her,
But never worked up the nerve,
Never stopped thinking about her,
She kept making fun of him,
He still wanted her,
But she got the other him,
But the other he got a new her, 
She, heartbroken, looked for him,
He comforted her,
They fell in love,
He got her,
She got him,
Now they live happily ever after,
Never letting go of their love

I COULD SEE

Look what you've done for me
you helped me find my song
You had the faith to believe
even though it has been so long 

Listen to this amazing melody
it was still right there all the time
Until your lyric touched my heart
I had no rhythm.. I was blind

You began to play your music
the voice within me moved in sync
I was reaching out to you girl
and in that moment I could see
In that moment I could see

My life's ballad was to be a duet
now I knew what had been wrong
For years I'd been singing solo
Yeah, I had needed you all along

Together we've got sweet harmony
oh girl, I just love the hard beat
Making music with you all night
when this song ends gonna hit repeat

So play me all your music now
let's groove we got chemistry
Our songs.. let's move together
let's explore how good we can be

You began to play your music
the voice within me moved in sync
I was reaching out to you girl
and in that moment I could see
In that moment I could see
I could see
I could see
I could see
I could see

A BALLAD

Unity of mind, body, and spirit the qualifier of love
Statuette 
Statue
The wedding vows

If you love somebody, let him know.
When life is short, why would you not explode?
Whispering in his ear about your heart,
he will assume it’s an inner voice.

If you love somebody, shout it to the world.
Share time with that person so he will know.
Tell him via intimate words.
Write him a love poem.

When life is short, why would you not be a bombshell?
Spread your wings like a butterfly you are beautiful.
Make him recognize what he has.
Humor his mind make him laugh.

When you love somebody, superimpose.
Take control of his soul.
Lay above all his meants. 
Create an ambiance he wants to be within.

If you love someone, find his passions.
Don’t allow negative stressors.
Time is of the essence.
Figurine - shape your bust all he wants is to be loved.

Now Hear My Confession

I have been blind, unwilling 
To see he true love you're giving.
I have ignored every blessing.
I'm on my knees confessing

That I feel myself surrender
Each time I see your face.
I am staggered by your beauty,
Your unassuming grace.
And I feel my heart is turning,
Falling into place.
I can't hide,
Now hear my confession.

I have been wrong about you.
Thought I was strong without you.
For so long nothing could move me.
For so long nothing could change me.
Now I feel myself surrender
Each time I see your face.
I am captured by your beauty,
Your unassuming grace.
And I feel my heart is turning,
Falling into place.
I can't hide
Now hear my confession.

You are the air that I breathe.
You're the ground beneath my feet.
When did I stop believing?

’Cause I feel myself surrender 
Each time I see your face.
I am staggered by your beauty,
Your unassuming grace.
And I feel my heart 
Falling into place.
I can't hide
Now hear my confession.

WHISPERS OF LIGHT

In the distance I saw you there
Forgive my silly childlike stare
But lately I’ve become so aware
Of your whispers of light

You shine brighter than the rest
It’s incredibly obvious you’re the best
All night flight I’d gladly invest
For your whispers of light
 
I’m not surprised when I arrive
To see such brilliance you’re so alive
Your other suitors can’t seem to survive
Your whispers of light
 
I’m getting closer to your flame
This journey has been somewhat insane
I'm expecting the miraculous, girl I finally came
To your whispers of light
 
I’ve been warned you’re more than clever
That closer to you means closer to never
To hold you in that moment is to regret forever
Still I'm drawn to your whispers of light

To see others fall only makes me stronger
How can I resist your angel glow any longer
Reached out to touch couldn't have been wronger
Your whispers of light made this moth a goner!

The Honest Truth

The Honest Truth

I am a simple girl
My feelings are honest and true
I just yearn to be loved
Like I love you
No need for the past 
To rear its ugly head
With you I see laughter
And bright days ahead
At last I have found you
No more tears 
Take my hand and trust in me
Let your heart love me
And together we shall be free
To discover what God intends 
Honesty and love 
Between you
And me

Is She the One?


Is She The One


I thought I knew her
years ago.
She broke my heart
and let me go.
For ten long years,
I've spun my wheels,
To find someone
to fill her heels.

Now she's here.
She walked her road.
She found my battered heart
and load.
She tells me I have been with her
Every step and every turn.
Is she the one?
Is she the one?

Is she the one I'm meant to love?
I want an answer from above
I've loved her all this time away...
Is she the one I need to stay?

So many twists and turns in life,
I truly want her for my wife
She walked her path, 
and never found,
A heart like mine 
to keep her sound.
Is she the one?
Is she the one?

Now I thank God for all He's done
Answered my prayers and brought her home
She lifts me up, I am her slave.
I know for sure, she is the one
She is the one She is the one
I'm meant to love forever more!
She is the one, She is the one!
I'm meant to love ...forever more.

pinky swear

i followed you along the silent train tracks
in the dark cold rain
stepping on photographs of sunshine
watching the world wash away the graffiti of possibility
cause you promised
you pinky swore
that we are a heartbeat away from love
that we are in the way of knowin what the heart dreams
i followed you into the winters night with romance on my mind
you never told me that i would have to leave it all behind
i still believe we will find love
still believe because
you promised
you pinky swore...

WITHIN FRIENDS

Black; brown; yellow or white
Wherever you came from
Rich; poor; young or old
Whoever you are

Professional, educated or not
No matter what status you are
Single, married bisexual
No matter what personality you have

We can be friends

Life is more colorful
When friends are dear and truthful
A shoulder to lean and cry on
A hand to squeeze and hold

Indeed, pals give comforts
Worth of fortunes like treasures
Whenever disagreements arise
True friends win for sure

True peers protects and cares
They understand and reassures
Forgetting any pressure
As they know all will are God's creatures

Friends are not selfish
Selfless like love in flourish
It is beyond time and description
It is far from extinction

Love Above The Elements

I know love with you...

The sea in violent wave 
will not submerge our hearts,

The fires of fast fury
cannot finish the poetry of our tender touch,

The gales that gust grimly
will not wear away the warmth of our eyes,

The stubborn earth in it's shifts
shall not quake and crumble the structure of our love's monument...

Dedicated to my Love Muse...the future knows our pulse...

BESIDE EVERY GREAT WARRIOR OF OLD

Men were given total dominion
over all living things, and when
they subdued their enemy:
they were granted immortality!

Beside every great warrior of old, 
there was a strong woman of humility,
who gave him a victorious  sword;
and helped him change the course of history! 

Emperess Theodora was one of them to show adversity;
when Noka's revolt broke out:  she decided to stay,
while her hushand, Justinian, fled the city;
what an admirable act of feminity!

Beside every great warrior of old,
there seems to be a look of invincibility,
a defying moment to obtain glory;
and the cost for a golden crown is well-known!

Be the warrior of modern times, treatened by fear and fragility, 
seek out the man you were destined to be;
trust that woman who posseses internal beauty,
and beside this warrior, her courage will guide you with dignity!

It Hurts To Say Goodbye

Every time I leave you, 
It hurts more than I can say
When we say goodbye
Every time I fly away

Every time I leave you
The man I so adore 
The pain I feel goes deeper
And I cry a little more

Every day I wonder if
You ever will be free
Every day I wonder
Will you ever be with me

Every night I cry
Because of leaving you behind
Every tear that falls
The fear of doubt invades my mind

The tears I cry keep coming
Till I’m drowning in the flood
Every day my heart bleeds
But you just don’t see the blood

You're the closest thing to heaven
I will ever be
Please don’t make this love we have
Into a memory

While I'm here remember me
In every song you sing
While you’re there remember me
With all the love I bring

And I will pray next time I fly
To you across the sky
I won’t leave there without you
I won’t have to say goodbye..

Love in my every nerve

Tonight we went out in the dark
just us two in the park
we kissed under the moonlight
Held our bodies tight
I felt love
your love in my every nerve.

You whispered to  me
Gryffy I love thee
Your love is true
Loving you is all I will do
I felt love
Your love in my every nerve.

pressed me hard on your ample bosom
pressed you hard on your bottom
I felt our love blossom
Never to end like Sodom
For I feel love
Your love in my every nerve.

we are compatible
we are inseparable
This I found out
True without doubt
For I feel but love
Your love in my every nerve.

Love me forever
Leave me never
Hurt me not
Our love rot not
For I love you
your love
In my every nerve.

Still mean so much to me

The flowers I used to send you
will have died so long ago
and the love letters
that I wrote from my heart
that allowed our love to grow.

All the magical times we shared
and how much we showed we cared
Will mean nothing now
But they still mean so much to me.

Every girl I've  met since
in some way reminded me of you
and just as things seemed to go ok
I'd suddenly get blue
You were such a big part of me
and once I was such a big part of you.

I just wonder of ever think of me
once in a long while and remember
the memories I so cherish 
and it makes you smile.

I guess what I'm trynig to say
is that I still love you
as crazy as it seems your still the lady
of my dreams
forever more
and if you ever needed me
they'll always be an open door
I know you may never here my song
but I just had to express the emotions
inside me that feel so strong.

A LIFETIME CHANCE

Are you trying to win my heart?
Go ahead take anything on a cart..
Each and every part..
Will have a function to impart..

So with yours..
Time to time your actions pour..
I don't mind to take a detour..
All wants to do and take feature..

So much makes me feel..
I don't bother for you here..
I don't mind for you are dear..
I don't want neither to scare or fear..

For I believe with you I'm rich..
Not of dangling like diamonds..
But with an affection, You cheerly clear..
More than companion, more than peer..

I want to warmly hug you..
Taking away any of your blues..
Minutes and hours our bodies glued..
Of passion not they judge rude..

I will soon be way to decide..
Determine to choose, what to take aside..
I hope I don't need to divide..
For I trust, God will abide..

Will I see you from a distance?
I wish so for an instance..
I don't like any finance..
All I treasure is what's us - a lifetime chance...

WITHOUT IT LOVE

If that's possible, if am distracted, we'll stop!
It’s possibly could, while we are enjoying our moment together.
We’ll see, just keep focused.
We could focus, while calling.
I love you...
I love you too...
I love you and I love you too...
Do you know why you love me?
I know because you love me too.
That’s sad…
What if I didn't love you?
Will you not love me?
Don’t be sad…
The feeling of love cannot be put in a sentence.
I did love you because I felt it.
I cannot dictate my feelings to love you, 
It dictates to itself that I indeed love you.
I would love to see that my beloved is seen beautiful and smart by others
This as long as showing interest doesn’t makes me feel jealous.

For the love of you

If only I could make you see
that you mean so much more to me,
a priceless gift, wrapped in a smile,
the dream that makes my day worthwhile,
undoubted proof there is a God,
the joy that not all hope is gone.
To me you are that piece of mind,
that gives the world such sweet reply
that although love is sometimes lost,
its remnants left will never die-

How more could I express my love
for words are but the breath in me
what more can I, a man still do
except to give what's left of me . . .
for lips can flatter all too well
and sing the praise of many things
but you are in a different class
to you . . . . . I give my everything!

If ever I do fail to prove
my strong and constant love for you
then never have I lived a day
or ever took a breath anew.

William part 1

I ask all to be open minded as I tell the story of my friend,  William .
There are so many prejudice in this World , from color to sex 

To me it has always been the soul , the person inside 
For one that is shallow will not experience life in true blessing 

William my friend was African American , he was fun and personality full of 'I am here "
William was Gay , William disowned , William called "A queer "

Well this is a lesson for all to know
God does not care what color , but the heart , what color it shows .

I had left my 1st Husband , with 2 children I had to support .
I was depressed , felt alone in the civilian World of a sort 

For when I got to Monterey bay , I was on a Military base 
Very shy and recluse , not leaving the perimeter of the land 
I opened such a big door when I left that abusive Man 

I had the tiniest apartment with 2 little rooms , probably 550 sq. feet I presume .
I will never for get the night He came to my door , William ," Girl, lets go dancing 
Let's go explore ! He called me 'The platinum Blonde "

We went out together and danced , he was amazing ! William energized any room . He Lit it Up ! 
For he had something inside his beautiful soul , no money could buy, nor silver or gold.

Well years went by in Monterey bay , I had fallen in love with a man , Lost so much time .

Time went by , after the man broke my heart ,I remember "where is William "
I missed something that lies  deep in my heart . The true Love and friendship of he I craved .

Now this story is long so go to  "William part 2  "be patient , be brave .

TRUE LOVE

 TRUE LOVE
no, no hardships no pain
but sheer absolute super gain 
in an ecstatic experience of love
which flows everywhere like pious dove

love is spontaneity and spontaneity is love
pinnace of all your emotions is love
the perplexions of mind might sway
but should be kept smooth quietly away.

the bird that sings, and glow worm that shines
can't express, even part of love's shrine
as its a feeling which can drive you insane
with lot to loose but little to gain

the ones who cheer about it, can't express it fully
but those who lost it, despite loving there love truly
the feeling with little worth in this material universe
but a feeling which can obliterate all your curse.

a thought on your love's theme is god
which can make happy even your final nod
love serve those who practice it with eternity
and serve others with unbiased fraternity

                                                                BY -:  AKASH SANGWAN

I Miss You

I know how lost and lonely
Your  world was for a while
Your eyes so sad and empty
Your face without a smile

Your world so out of focus
Set you walking the wrong street
And always I’d be there
To wipe the tears of each defeat

But never did I give up hope
I always knew we’d win
I knew with me beside you
Once again your soul would sing

For you were still the son I loved
Who’d brought me so much joy
You were still a part of me
You were still my boy

And with your strength and dignity
You washed away the pain
Rebuilding all your hopes and dreams
You learned to smile again

And with that smile upon your face
And new found peace of mind
With fun and laughter in your heart
You left this world behind

I feel an endless ache inside
I feel so incomplete
For losing you it means
I've lost the biggest part of me

Forever I will miss the laughs
Our talks, your smiling face
Forever I will miss the son
I never can replace

It’s hard to let you go
Because we never said goodbye
Now you’re an Angel in God’s Heaven
High above the sky

But sometimes when I'm all alone
And feel all hope is gone
I seem to hear you whisper
"Mum just smile, and carry on"

To Be My Valentine

If you call all the time.
Place your love on the line.
I'll hear your voice in my ear.
You'll find it's perfectly clear.
To be my Valentine..

If you send me your heart.
It will give me a start.
Send your love if you dare.
You will find that it's fair.
To be my Valentine..

If you show me your love.
I will fly like a dove.
I will show no fear.
You will find it sincere.
To be my Valentine..

It's Our Wedding Day

I look at you; Oh, what a lovely smile 
I get dumbfounded for a while. 
You fit that gown so perfectly; 
And how's my get up for today? 

A daddy's darling, you're his pride and joy; 
And I am just a (lowly/naughty) boy. 
But mom is proud of me as well; 
She knows my love for you is real. 

We have our hope of the life ahead; 
Our dream to follow to where it leads. 
A happy ending is just nonsense 
Because when love is true it never ends. 

We cherish moments of then and now 
But the time has come for our solemn vows 
Bouquets are lined for you and me 
Let's walk the aisle, it's our wedding day.

I purposely wrote the above poem as lyric of a wedding ballad for the forth-coming wedding of my niece Leslie Ann Nadela and Morris Reyes Tabada in December 2013.  I came up with a melody for this song but  I shall gladly appreciate a musician who may happen to come across this poem and put in his version of melody that would suite to my taste (which I prefer traditional  and acoustic or un-synthesized accompaniment type)  of song.  Pls. send feedback if you'd like to send me your demo and have this piece of literature our collaborative piece. Thanks...

Echoes of You

For me the sun has closed her eyes
Never to rise again
Darkness is all that surrounds me now
Darkness and echoes of pain

I'm on a journey to nowhere
The road is narrow and long
Walking alone, I stumble and fall
With echoes of you and our song

I try to look to the future, but
I may just as well be blind
The absence of you is all that I see
Echoes of you so defined

Confusion and pain, my constant friends
They never leave me alone
Reminders of all that you and I shared
Echoes I cannot disown

Today or tomorrow will never be mine
I live in a dark, sad place
The past, not the present, is all I can see
In the echoes of your lovely face

Emotional scars are invisible
But the damage is built to last
I wonder, will I ever be free
From echoes of you and the past...

To You My Love

I love you,
More than you know,
Cause you are,
The beating of my heart,
My every thought in my mind,
When we are apart,
You are my everything,
That makes me whole and complete,
You have touched me in so many ways,
That words can not begin to explain,
Cause you have done all this,
Without saying a word,
Without a physical touch,
Without any type of sign,
You have done all of this wonderfulness,
By being your sweet kind self,
This is what makes you,
One of a kind,
And a very special person,
And no matter what may happen in time,
You will always be happy,
And loved by all,
Especially me cause,
You are here in my heart,
To stay.

The Ballad of Malcolm McCorey

Come and listen awhile I pray
To hear a sad love story,
I have only a minute to stay
To tell the tale of Malcolm McCorey.

I'm Malcolm, Sally was my bride
I've loved her since grade school,
She was my life and my pride
And, I was her ever loving fool.

Work let off early that night
And it was pouring down in sheets,
When my eyes beheld the sight
Of Sally whoring 'tween the sheets.

My Sally was not forthcoming
And, I was blind by love's adoring,
I swear I never saw it coming
The day my Sally went a whoring.

This wasn't some casual adoring
That I might could understand,
This was at our home a whoring
In our bed with another man.

It was a cold and rainy night
And it was pouring down in sheets,
I wasn't prepared for the sight
Of Sally whoring 'tween the sheets.

The truth came like a blinding light
She couldn't wait to shut the door,
When I came home early that night
While she gaily played the whore!

She glared up at me in surprise
At seeing me suddenly arrive,
I stared back into her lying eyes
Down the barrel of my forty five!

It was a stormy and dismal night
And it kept pouring down in sheets,
I'll never forget the awful sight
Of Sally whoring 'tween the sheets.

The Padre' comes to comfort me
My life's now run it's course,
Today my pain will cease to be
Soon, I'll feel no more remorse.

I forgive myself of all at last
My soul will soon go soaring,
Today will soon be o'er and past
The pain, of Sally gone a whoring.


* Malcolm was executed in may of 1969. May God have mercy on his soul.

WHEN WOOD IS NOT AS IT SEEMS

I grasped the staff
That the old man had given to me

If I had only looked

At the tattered cloak

More closely

 

I could have seen

The deep spun blue

The silver stars

That had faded

Under a million morning suns

and travels under canopies of green

 

I felt the wood grow

It knew the way

The way of everything

Of magic

Of nature

Everything to know

 

I held the staff

In the morning light

It was then that i saw

Upon the wood

That chance meetings are now understood

The deep spun blue wool and silver stars

Of his cloak and our coverings

That began the journey

That handed over to me

The journey

Upon the wood

The letters could be seen

“the love of all things”

   

I knew I would meet him again

When it was my turn

To hand over the staff

When I finished my journey

Of a million morning suns

Under canopies of richest green

With my Faerie Moondust Queen

 

The staff to guide me too

The Moondust

To love me

When wood….

Is not as it seems

This I learnt

Yet, the Moondust

With her wisdom

Always knew

Though remains - façades of humanity 
Angel kind - wicce of my welkin dreams
Casted by the lote of she
Ta'en the hollow Herefro way - ne'er!
Caught with twain
W'ie or swain

Angel dearest so fair - love does not share
Seemed a crux, when eath is lone
I rose for thee - cede all of thy love to me
Or was this not meant to be
Eros's deceit 
So wistful - corpse bride I remain to be

Home is on the inside

Home is where love is loud without a word.
Where silent understanding can still be heard.

Where, when your confused, you know you'll be understood.
Where loved ones  would take your pain if they could.

Where the people laugh with you, and never at you.
Where you are still loved even when they don't like what you do.

Where the ones who care are never too far.
Where you finally realize who you are.

Where you find a strong shoulder and a tender ear.
Where you can be vulnerable without any fear.

Where you can be yourself and never have to pretend.
Where you are comfortable in your own skin.

Where your sadness is divided, and your happiness is multiplied.
Where there is always someone on your side.

Where you learned how to share, love, and give.

Home is where your heart and soul will always live.

Don't ever steal her man

Don’t ever steal her man

She’s the perfect little lady
The greatest wife of all
Most people who would know her
Will say ‘she’s wonderful’
She be a loving mother
A cook of some renown
But if you try to take her man
Then she’ll soon put you down.

She’s filled with generosity
She’d give you her last dime
She’ll never hurt another
She’d not commit a crime
She has a lovely temperament
She likes to have her fun
But if you try to steal her man
Then hey, you’d better run.

She’ll always sacrifice herself
And leave herself to last
Her heart is filled with so much love
Her magnitude is vast
But if you hurt her children
Or try to steal her guy
Then you had better flee from her
Or you might even die.

Another Yesterday Gone

Blankets of mist surround the air
Birds start singing their song
A new dawn arises, a new day begins
Another yesterday gone

Remembering your sweet loving voice
Your body close to mine
Your tender words and kisses
I wish could be frozen in time

Although I feel you with me
In life I'm all alone
Lost and stumbling 
Down the only road I've ever known 

Nights I lay here thinking
In my sleepless solitude
Grasping, clinging to a past
That doesn't let me choose

My shattered heart still bleeding
The pain too much to bear
I know I can't be mended
I'm broken beyond repair

Please don't leave me here
For I'm so lost without your love
I'm ready to go with you now
Through the gates of Heaven above...

NotBroken

introduction: We have two eyes, two ears, two hands, two feet but one soul.
We came to this world for many purposes, for many tests. And among all the tests, we are
here to find our perfect companion to make our lives actually complete and start a new
expedition. Two tracks merged into one that can never be separated. And to make the ground
not get cracked, we need to be that strong enough…no matter how many earthquake drives by.



When the glowing sun will shine,
I’ll start my quest to seek my fate
The moment when you will be mine,
You will know why you’re so great

Now, I’ve tried so hard to make you realize
You really don’t have to be afraid,
Of all the things you feel alive
Your soul is as elegant as a pure jade

When time comes we all have to go,
Because life never stays all frozen
And when the night falls upon your door,
I need you to be Notbroken.

When I’m gone, you be strong
I need you to wipe your tears and believe,
No matter how far away, I’m always here with you
As you’re my truth, my fate, my everything...

You Had Me From Hello

You live a million miles away
So far across the sea
Still I search the reason why
Fate brought you here to me

I never dreamed I’d feel this way
From just one night with you
And always I’ll be wondering
If you still feel it too

If I could turn the hands of time
Or change the rivers flow
You wouldn’t drift away from me
I wouldn’t let you go

I live a lie of happiness
So no one sees my pain
Because I fear forever more
I won’t see you again

Time will pass and tears will fall
But still I won’t forget
For you’re the one night in my life
I never will regret

Memories and dreams
Are all that’s left to hold on to 
But while I hold the dream 
Someone else is holding you

You were my “Once in a Lifetime”
The moment of truth in my lies
Never will I find again
What I found when I looked in your eyes

My dreams are what keep me going
And I can’t wait to turn out the light
In sleep is when I am with you
And I don’t want to miss you tonight

I'm now just a memory in your past
You'll think of once in a while
But somehow, I know each time you do
My memory will make you smile

I'll always be your Juliet
And you, my Romeo
Always I'll be waiting
Because you had me from hello...

Everything About Her

Everything about her enchants me
With her gorgeousness holding me captive
Dazzling as roses in their joyous mood
And refreshing as morning mist
Making me feel rising and rising again
With happiness becoming my daily routine;
Everything about her shines through my heart
For her love is powerful, strong beyond comparison
And every morning as fresh as flowing stream
Pouring out passion as sweet as pure honey;
Everything about her is lovely-
Everything about her is unbelievable
Her captivating smile brings relief to my everyday worries
Awakening my deepest affection
Together we are radiant with happiness
Each day with her brings memories to be cherished
Each day with her is a treasure
Any loving being would desire;
Everything about her is purified with sweetness

In Youth-less Age

In Youth-less Age
 


Though gentle, hopeful drifts we brood,
but age our wont be kind enough,
in threescores is when life imbued,
will partial be the earthly stuff;
but you'll still be my fancy then,
when Suns shall be the Shallowest,
and dry as those days --my fingers, pen!
Diluting the persistent best;
then shall I my own mind bereave,
when servile times would near a close,
but will your eyes, mine still deceive,
that greater truth than life propose.
The understanding of our earth,
up till we stay, --the way shall give,
entwine when with a lovers mirth,
we not our age but more shall live;
there I shall be a part of you,
though life may still not worthy be,
but time the hearts as one does sew
and breeds the soul's eternity.
 
Soon ladies fine with auburn head,
in youth's subservience shall grow,
with shadows white and lips blood red,
to whom the haste --the world will owe;
but, by the words that reason frowns,
and those that cost if cared for less;
within the gardens, across all towns,
just you my dame this heart possess,
as your my gardens cherished fruit,
could time nor age do you wrong,
your grace can shift a hand from mute,
such do my rhymes to you belong,
and the words, claims that come to me,
be their center, and my days renew,
until the time this soul is free,
and life us quells, an end pursue;
the end of the sojourn we made,
shall love then still be intense more,
when breaths and sight move to a fade,
like youth, your age --I shall adore.

Her Face

Her Face was perfection, Still see it everywhere
The beauty in her eyes, Please forgive my stare
Though to confess my love, 
Oh no, I wouldn't dare...
So I'll just keep thinking of her, But it's just not fair

Her Face won't go away, So engrained in my mind
This girl was different, Unlike any other I'll ever find
Oh how the two of us, 
How our lives could've aligned...
So now, to everyone else, My heart is blind

But she'll never know,
Just what I would've done to be with her!
That I'd gladly travel through time and space
Just to appreciate her beauty,
And wake next to Her Face

Her Face comforts me, Holds me tight and dear
Takes me to another world, A new frontier
I'm dreaming where she loves me so much, 
That part is clear...
But as I awake, Just shed another tear

Her Face and her love, I won't ever forget
Lust for her will remain, Lips will get wet
I'll be reminded of her, 
At each days sunset...
And I'll remember everything, From the first day we met

But she'll never know,
Just what I would've done to be with her!
That I'd gladly travel through time and space
Just to appreciate her beauty,
And wake next to Her Face

Her Face is the sunshine, A universal light
With it's soul and it's passion, It was quite a sight
Oh how just to see her, 
Brought me such delight...
But here I am all alone now, Another late night

Her Face will surely lift someone up, With unconditional love
So what will come of me, Can I rise above?
Without Her Face, 
I'm unsure thereof...
Because see, out of my mind, to her, I'll never shove

And she'll never know,
Just what I would've done to be with her!
That I'd gladly travel through time and space
Just to appreciate her beauty,
And wake next to Her Face

Her Face, I see it every night, In my dreams
Where everything will all align, Oh how it seems
We're walking together... 
Hands together, Along the forests blue streams

Her Face ignited feelings, Things I've never before felt
Just got to play the hand, The cruel hand I was dealt
I will always have my writing, 
To continue to dwell...
On a lost love to whom one day, I would've knelt

babe dove

All of ma life I was dying for a touch like yours.

Then u made that a reality,

U held me in ya arms,

As warm as ya touch,

ya arms were.

U Gave me a sweet tender kiss,

These made me feel at home.

 Because home is where the heart is.

Now this is where I wan spend the rest of ma days.

I don't wanna loose ya touch again.

I will hold u so dearly

And love u with all my might

Because with u I can finally b myself again

 

It feels like the doves have been set free,

So they can fly in the sky nd sing sweet melodies.

But the baby dove will come back,

For it knows that this is home,

Where it belongs

Like the morning breeze,

 which opens up the flower's petals

As they release the sweet scent of freedom nd love.

I will be there to grab the love nd freedom brought back by the baby dove,

Nd we will live by that for the rest of our days,

I will take ya hand nd keep u warm al night,

and when eva u need me,

all u have to do is call ma name,

nd I will b there to do that u desire.

For I know u are my empire,

Nd it will put a smile on ya cute face,

A smile always accompanied with warmth, truth and love,

I will always be there

To shower ya with love.

 

If m nt there to answer,

Do not cry for me,

For the Mississippi is already overflowing with water,

Ya tears will make it worse.

Be hopeful for my return,

For I will always b back for u,

Cos I will never abandon u,

I will forever b wit u

As

I have always wished and desired .

Being with u is a dream come true,

I will give ma all for u to be happy,

because happiness is all I want and desire for you....

Please smile....

Bride She Is But Not My Bride

All these days, I wait the day,
Now that day has come,
Pour delicious healthy words,
Till I say, 'had some,'
Bride she is and bride she was,
And her heart was mine,
The girl I loved, still I love,
Hurt me more than fine,
still I love and still I love,
All her thoughts were mine,
Music plays the singers sing,
filling evils dine.

Hands on him and eyes on me,
All her hearts were mine,
Call me not and shake me not,
Till she show some sign,
Walking splendor, words tender
men will hail you high,
Silent thoughts of days that passed,
Now my heart will cry,
Fill with words and wipe my tear,
Pour me some more wine,
Music plays the singers sing,
filling evils dine.

Friends and kins, gone far away,
call them all to me,
comfort me, give me a hug
raise me up, off knee
guard my shoulders, please elders
let me cry out loud
blistering cold, climb my veins
walk me off this crowd,
O my girl in wedding gown,
ain't she just too fine
Music plays the singers sing,
filling evils dine.

Give a rope, tied with a knot,
I will hang my self,
mad enough, imagining,
I will kill my self,
beautiful bride, darling bride,
she was all I had,
smile to me, lie by my side,
begging you my love,
quit marrying, please resign,
come with me, my shine
Music plays the singers sing,
filling evils dine.

All these days I wait the day,
Now this day has come,
Pour delicious healthy words,
Till I say, 'had some'.

God gave me you

Love's undeniable journey 
explores all life,touches an 
amazing earth only you and
I can share between time.


All ups n' downs come with
Fortune n' price, but together
We will shatter a mountain of
Rock.

A place we can go hide closely 
cuddled cave, against the 
Closure of your misled arms,
Wrapped tightly around a spin
Of Saturn's that ring me.

As Pluto's fire, breaks guard 
closer to the sun.....Where GOD 
GAVE ME YOU] And an UNchained 
melody to sing.

I Miss You

I miss you so much that I am sick
I fear forgetting your face will stick

I fear growing old not remembering
I wish your spirit is at rest and not lingering

What did you think of me in your last moment
I will never know if I was bliss or torment

Why do I suffer so about you
I don’t recall if I ever made you glow

It was so hard admitting how much I loved
You when you left me for above

I wasn’t allowed to go to your funeral
But my love for you will be eternal

Take me by the hand when I find hollow ground
The wind is a whisper in my ear just make the sound

If I saw you now how would I explain my pain
Would you just laugh at me, jeer with disdain 

I get a feeling in my stomach that cringes
It makes me rip doors off by the hinges

Dedication To A Short Life

My granddaughter was a sparkle in everyone's eye,
She brought happiness to everyone,
But her life didn't seem long enough,
To see the joys yet to be done.

Her life came to an end, 
Not by our choice,
God called her back,
To watch over us and make us realize our choices.

She was always happy,
And full of joy,
She always helped us realize,
There is always more to life than just toys.

Never forget the people close to your heart,
Because if you do,
They can disappear when you least  expect it,
And never be there anymore for you.

My Lover - My Friend

I look into your eyes and see

A soul I’ve known for a million years

Wasn’t looking for love

And yet you appeared

You came into my life 

Like a warm gentle breeze

With your easy way 

And sweet sweet smile 

Couldn’t help myself

I fell in love with such ease

My lover

My friend

My love for you

Will never end

the day i shot cupid

It was a long shot
taken after a major
emotional battle...
A series of thoughts
draining my brain
making me feel less of
a person
because i sold my heart 
to Satan, traded it 
for what was another woman's
Which never made sense
except for the fact that it felt
good...
You have made me
your emotional bank and you
most treasured scared piece
of flesh that makes my head
spin and my taste buds explode
and when we talk
between forgotten passages
and take walks in deserted gardens
the arrows you hold to the back
of my heart etches deeper
cuts the arteries holding together
my sanity
and bleeds emotions new to
my heart but brings spectacular comfort
and for you I would do
anythings just so you can
touch my hand again
look deep into my eyes
and say those three most
intangible words in ancient English
then I would know
you are the only person who ever
really got to know the true color
of my eyes
but never really saw the fire 
you lit in them
And just so to end my insomnia
I will hunt down that bastard of a kid
steal his bow, and plant it deep
into your heart
so you could understand
Why it hurts so much
to love you back
In a way I doubt 
you will ever love me in...

Receiving The Lord And Sharing His Word 2

Stumbling I've seen the price,
Of not answering the call,
In touch with the Holy Spirit,
I've seen the love within us all,

I have been in the company,
Of the one who brushed sin away,
He is beautiful, loving and kind,
He asked me if I'd like to shape clay,

Now to this day I have studied,
I have shared in great fellowship,
I have tried to capture the truth,
Praying and fasting in loving worship,

And lessons I learn and share,
Combined with the life I have led,
I hitched over twenty thousand miles,
And people around the world I've met,

I have worked in ivory towers,
Had a radio show across the land,
But I have also been a laborer,
Who worked until I could hardly stand,

Trained in real estate regulations,
Insurance and securities rules too,
But I've also been a garbage man,
And begged for my dinner a time or two,

The blessings of this up and down life,
Where I've been up and down so many times,
I now know the benefits of this strife,
It's helped me understand my crimes,

Those times so full of arrogance,
Where I hurt those who I hardly knew,
But even worse were the sad times,
When I hurt those I professed love to,

I was weak and tired but I tried to stand,
Not worthy but the Lord gave me power,
When I followed his simple loving way,
Then Holy blessings were like a shower,

The more I reach to understand,
What the Lord would have me do,
And to answer the call of the Lord,
I am always led right back to you,

I am not sure what I can share,
For I've seen the world good and bad,
And all people need to be spared,
To be blessed with all they need to have,

The Tiny Box Under The Tree

I could see the snow falling outside the window
As we cuddled on Christmas right near the tree
Drinking egg nog and watching our favorite shows on tv
Anxiously I couldn't help but wonder
What my sweetheart had wrapped up for me
He must have read my thoughts
Because suddenly he gave me a surprise gift
And immediately got on his knees

To see what my expression would be
Nervously I stood in shock
But couldn't wait to unwrap the gift
That was a very tiny box
To my amazement it immediately caught my eye
Sparkling and shining from the opened box
Stood a very large diamond ring
Just as beautiful as it could be

At that very same moment he then stood up
And said,  " Will you marry me?"
Without a doubt thrilled and excited
I immediately answered back with a yes
We then smiled and intimately embraced one another
Finally ending the night on Christmas was even more special
And one of my best Christmas holidays ever
Because I became newly engaged which was a gift like no other

The Blue Rose

My true love asked me for my hand.
Before I answer, I demand
He first must bring a bright blue rose.
"I'll search the world for one of those,"
Was his reply and off he went.
Then  many weary months he spent
In searching for elusive blue.
I turned away each offered hue.
Heartlessly, I bade him go
To every flower and garden show.
"Come back with rose for which I pine,
I long to claim rare rose as mine."
His spirits sagged each time I said,
"I do not want a pink or red.
I'll only settle for a blue
If I'm to give my heart to you.
He answered, "Love, I've done my best,
The impossibility of the quest
Has weakened me unto my death.
I've sought blue rose with my last breath.
With these last words, my true love died.
For many days and nights I've cried.
Where it has come from, no one knows
But on his grave grows a blue rose.




For Blue Rose contest.  Placed first

Oh Dear Rose

Oh dear Rose, you prickle me
That if I do so much but breathe
I will be full of scars and pain
Though I love to see your beauty close
I cannot out of vain

Oh dear Rose, you wounded me
And even if this pulse do beat with you
I cannot touch but by just look
The stronger I want this feeling to go
The longer my pain to heal took

Oh dear Rose, you make me weep
You go in cadence with the meadow
That I want so much to give caress
Though your arms, so near to grasp
I do not but watch you less

Oh dear Rose, you give me grief
I am longing for you in ages
But you come and hurt me again
This heart, this love may not be strong
But yet I cannot pull away then

Oh dear Rose, my dearest Rose, you'd make me die
That you memory stays too long enough for mine
And I cannot contain what is inside
I try to run away from your face
But then I get scared without you and your embrace

But dear Rose - don't make me forget
That there is a sun though she hides
That there is life though I died
That there will be more happiness than sorrow
And a rainbow will shine on the bright tomorrow

Sugar and Honey

Sugar and Honey ©2013

Who could have known those Men in Black would be the groomsmen to serve as the royal escort for a date where time stood still. Minutes turn to hours turn to days the blaze of passion brighter than orange and yellow sun rays. Never again alone the search that was so cold now inflamed with life—passion roaming nomadically through radio waves with 37 wishes of “I love you”. Wishes that tell of a spell never to be broken cause 37 is prime impossible to divide.

From Lookout Point the view is endless. Hues of purple and red shimmer as clouds float by carefree smiling cause they know a secret we've yet to spy with our naked eye. The island sun winking as it sets daring us to never forget this very moment. This very moment of 2-wheel love with trails of cookies and cream a dream come true with me and you and you and me together as we grow stronger in self and each another.

Romancing moon perched high can’t wait to swoon cocoon enticing day dreams to transform into night dreams 2-stepping to the grove of Sam Bostic…”tell me your zodiac sign?” It don’t matter love cause I’m yours and you’re mine. Together we wander the beach of life with no real destination ahead but to hold your hand counting grains of sand knowing each one is a new chance to thank God for aligning you in just the right place at just the right time for me to see you not with my eyes but with my heart.

Nothing could tear us apart not even Black Ops screaming and fighting for main stage cause backstage forehead kisses are riches to please and tease all in one moment that will last an eternity.Sugar and honey intertwined a destiny so divine.Do we dare take this chance? A five letter word blurred with an infinite number of possibilities but only one solution with today as the finale for you and me.This chance we take resonates as the heavens open and whisper with the softest of voices for all to hear... 

Shai and Alvin “your joy is complete…you are like-minded…
with one love in spirit…you are of one mind.” 


Be kind to one another and keep today’s love in your heart forever.

Oh I get down...

Oh I get down,

To go downtown,

Flirt with the girls...

Get real loud...

Candlelight Flames Flickered in Fall ~ part 2

Strip me in your ways today
Naked, dancing~ In this Rain
Strip me of this pain away
Naked, prancing, gaining fame
Strip me with your golden eyes
Your golden hair
Your golden stare
Strip me naked in the Rain
Strip me naked I so dare

Dancing & Dancing
So beautiful you stand
Dancing & Prancing
Our love in the sand
Dancing this Dance
A little late ~ 6-11 slammed

So scream for me in God's Name
Taking this pain~ A spiraling divine
Scream for me in God's Name
Fuqqed and preached slow ticking to unwind
Scream for me today as you
Make me Rock & Roll
You penetrate my soul
Forever we will go
Unclean we fiend for more

Dream all this away~ as we bleed,,masturbate this hole
Dream all this today, for together we'll " Stay Gold"
Dream & dream away ~ Little treasure cut me clean
Dream of her this way ~ Filthy pleasure ~ Lost control

So strip me naked in the Rain
Strip me, rape me~ So insane
Strip me, take me~ Play me, Friend
Kill me, fill me, this twist, a broken fist
Fuqqed me hard ~ So slit this wrist
A "fuq Me" card
So fuq~ I missed
So fuqqing hard and then we kissed

BURN ~ These Candlelight Flames Away
BURN ~ These Candles tonight for today
BURN ~ These Candles ~ And never stay away 

A lust list whispered understands
Her face so weathered, take my hand
A life so severed understands
Our love so pleasured rolled in sand
Our love so treasured ~ Destined plan

Cuz ~ In my psycho world
She's my psycho girl
My lyrics cold jam
And she's my psycho world

And in this letter to you
She's so much better than you
I wrote this letter, it's true
She's so much better than you

Born Again

Bright smiles 
Sprawling blanket
Heights un-surmounted
Grown packs parting waves
Draw near the eclectic feel

Eclectic beautiful grace
Svelte amazon
Wow! Velvety chocolat
Drink to your feel

Six feet is no mean feat
Take your straw sip away
He’ll bore you a new hole
Alone for his use

Pole glans at a glance scary
Starry wide eyed gawking
Will I survive? Svelte trembled
Hi it nodded showing no disrespect

He would ask your authenticity
Like he don’t know you
You’ll say all you know
In gasps fill with him alone

Breath in a whirl whoosh
Shawls of white
Senses made anew
Born again in his sight.

Lying In The Darkness

Lying in the darkness
Nothing here to see
The shadow of my lonely self
Just staring back at me

Lying in the silence
Deafening to my ear
The beating of my lonely heart
The only sound I hear

Lying here remembering
The world of you and I 
A love beyond forever
We knew would never die

My tears are never ending
My vision always blurred 
No one listens to my prayers
My words still go unheard 

You showed me what it was to love 
You showed me how to feel
My love for you was endless
My life with you was real

I know I'm needed in this world 
Even though you’re gone
I know I must survive this pain
I know I must be strong

But always I’ll remember that
Again one day I’ll see
The only man I’ll ever love
The only man for me...

THE BREEZE STILL BLOWS.

WHALING SHIP CAPTAIN's LOVER part 3

WHALING SHIP CAPTAIN"S LOVER      part 3

Now Jorgie met a new love
He begged to make her wife
First, they’d fetch her small boy
 to start a fresh new life.

So East they went to Minot
To find her cousin there
But when they came to his big house
His smile for them was spare.

The cousin was not happy
To relinquish that fine boy
He said his wife would waste away
Without her greatest joy

And Jorgie, solemn, studied them
The woman and the child  &
Wept with great compassion
Her broken heart ran wild.

Determined to do justice
Twas no one she could blame
Jorgie hugged the boy good bye
Her soul in raging flame.

She bid the woman love him
And tell him she was aunt
And with her newfound husband, John,
Departed pale and gaunt.

Now John, he was a good man
Who worshiped his new wife
They agreed to keep a secret
About her former life

And so away the years passed
Son came after son
Jorgie had a fresh life
They built a solid home.

Each month she mailed the  letters
To the ‘cousin’ in the west
She parceled up the photos 
true siblings in their best

But Sadness haunted Jorgie’s eyes
She tried to hide it well
But her  husband knew her---
 She had him in her spell.

So sad she was and so forlorn
He needed to confide
To someone who could help him
to cheer his cherished bride.

And so he told his sister
His wife had longed to see
From her past her loved ones---
Her own sweet family.

So sister Lena planned a scheme—
For Jorgie wild and free
the gift would be a great surprise
And John he did agree.

They would take the children
Aboard the westbound train
Jump the train at Minot
To see the boy again.

Wait they must til autumn
For Jorgie twas the best
In May would be a newborn babe
Nuzzling at her breast

Then hit the plague of ‘17
Entire towns were dead—
And  in their midst was Jorgie--
With her newborn-- cold, in bed.

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Note:  Jorgie : (pronounced Yor’ gee) was a nickname
Her name:  Sena Jorgine Larsen
My father’s mother. The baby named Clara.  My was nearly 4 when they died. His father, John Anderson—Jorgie’s husband , never remarried.  He lived to be in his 70’s. His sister, my great aunt, Lena Anderson Hildebrandt, told me this story in 1971.

You Are All That Matters

Looking into your eyes,
Brings a whole new feeling,
It makes me smile,
All the time,
You always brighten my day,
When nothing,
Or no one else can,
You are my sunshine,
On a cloudy day,
When all I want to do,
Is stay in the bed,
Cause nothing or no one,
Matters anymore,
When I need a smile,
You are always there,
When I need,
An ear to listen,
You always have two to loan me,
Whenever I need anything,
You are always the one,
To brighten my day,
Even when this are so tough and dark,
For you are everything my heart needs,
You are a very special person,
For doing so many things,
In your life,
So please never change,
And you will find the happiness,
You deserve,
Just as you have brought to others and me,
Cause happiness will be with you,
For the rest of your life,
If you are patient,
This you will see.

SOMEDAY

Someday there 'll be a place for us 
This may be a goodbye but not the last 
Take one chance to see my worth 
If I will ask I wanna be part of your earth 

Someday I 'll find my own happiness 
And forget about our unfinished business 
Someday inside your heart you 'll realize 
That I 'm not worth to leave for your price 

Someday there 'll be one who will love me 
As I d love you and make me happy 
One day you 'll find a way back to me 
For that day you are only part of my memory 

Someday I 'll thank you for this part 
That I 'll have a chance to have a fresh start 
And I wanna say thank you for this broken heart 
Thank you for this permanent deep scar

THE WISHING WELL OF A SUN-RISE,

It is...within the tiny things of early morning, that moment breaths alive, it is within the tiny whisperings, that a melodye plays...like the very dear and the antelope, play home on the range.

so goes the melodye of heart beat, that plays quietly the songs of soul,

here a rhyme is born of day-light coming so soon, through the early morning eyes of the moon-light, and the starry dreams of twilight's transitioning...

into the light of a love letter written to dawn.

soul to soul conversing, as in this love letter, the letters just join hands with the words and just march across the sky...and at the end of the rainbow, there be plenty of golden time,

way down deep on the inside,

...as the inspired choir, of a bumble bee, or a butterfly, starts to sing, like tiny things that live,

flower to flower,
blossom to bloom,

watered and deeply cared for...

O' Eden.

I say, deep beneath the surface of a wishing well...where the pennies lay,

I wish a sun-rise.

HOW SHE LOVES

Life's journey long
Need for solid ground
Many rise and fall
On this merry-go-round
Not on this ride alone
My forever I've found

Oh, how she loves
She loves me whatever
My best friend, my forever
She loves me true
On her love I depend
Love never end, my forever
Forever

Dark clouds come
And life rains on me
Forever holds my hand
She gives faith to see
Not on this ride alone
Together we're free

Oh, how she loves
She loves me whatever
My best friend, my forever
She loves me true
On her love I depend
Love never end, my forever
Forever

Yeah, I'm here for her.. Here for forever

Oh, how she loves
She loves me whatever
My best friend, my forever
She loves me true
On her love I depend
Love never end, my forever
Forever

Without You (Song)

Daylight fade,
Burning through my eyes,
She walked out of my life
Again, I'm feeling low,
One more time girl here we go,
Now I'm falling, a final time,
Wish the sunlight didn't shine

It's getting critical
But girl I just can't help it,
I'm feeling miserable
Without you I'm so helpless,
I can't even sleep
Don't want to be, without you,
It's getting hard to breathe,
There is no me, without you,

And baby I try and try
to let you go,
The more I fight,
The more I know,
There's nothing in this life,
I want to do,
Without you,

Passing days,
I try to ease my mind,
I want make it this time,
because, she's really gone,
Lying here I'm all alone,
with nothing, to comfort me,
I'm hanging on to memories,

It's getting critical
But girl I just can't help it,
I'm feeling miserable
Without you I'm so helpless,
I can't even sleep
Don't want to be, without you,
It's getting hard to breathe,
There is no me, without you,


And baby I try and try
to let you go,
The more I fight,
The more I know,
There's nothing in this life,
I want to do,
Without you,

It's getting critical,
Girl I just can't help it,

There's nothing
in this life,
I want to do,
Without you

A WIDOW'S NIGHT

In the night, on the roof, the days beneath the moon,
She hugs her son then kiss his cheek and sings a lovely tune,
All the world, and the stars, were still to hear her song,
Upon his head she place her hands, and he hears along,
The awful past her youthful charm,
Her sweet and handsome love,
Her love is dead, and has flown,
To the stars above.

'O my son, O my love', she wraps her son to chest,
The sorrow night while hearing song, blew chilling wind from west,
With the leaves, of the trees, the night then comforts grief,
While drawing picture on his hand, by the fallen leaf.
But on her soul a shadow lie,
Long dead from broken heart,
Her lovely knight, on her arms,
Lie in reddish art.

As he sleep, in the cold, she takes her son to bed,
She kiss his head and sits beside, with pounding aching head,
On the bed, with her son, and lips upon his hair,
Alone she rests on mattress-pain, and no one to share
Her love was dead and heart was torn,
Far lost the shining smile,
With painful tears, far from ease,
Far to lonely isle.

Together We are One

Close your eyes and see me
Reach out and I am there
Feel your heartbeat in my chest
Run your fingers through my hair......

Your hands on my body
A whisper in my ear
I can see you
I can feel you
Even though you're not here......

Without you there'd be nothing
And I could not see to see
Together we are one
It's no longer just you or just me....

Freedom

The Freedom song
We finally wake from masked confusion
and realise the vast illusion
vanities, egos and promotions
caused wasteful carnage and sad emotions
the world was cleansed with artificial care
grandeur, greed with none to spare
never forget and never forgive
the shackled way we had to live.
what they have sown, now let them reap
our souls are fed and now complete.
So on lonely farms and crowded streets
in palaces and in slums
give welcome to freedoms quickening feet
As silently it comes. 
When you see a poor man crouched alone,
A hungry, helpless thing
set him on a moonbeam throne 
and treat him like a king. 
to all those who wear a hunters crown
and feast on your remains
rip away their purple gowns
And let them feel the peoples pain
Serene, unchanging, ever fair,
freedom smiles with secret mirth
And in a surge of insane devotion
we can release this captive earth
No iron bars, no flashing guns,
No land, no sky, no sea,
not even a bolts from Satins hell
Can keep freedom away from me

HEARTSTONE AWAKENING PART2

trees whispered her name
for a queen was born
from a faerie and an archer
who had the soul of a poet
the love of his moondust
in an early summer dawn
a girl came in to this  world
filled with magic and the love of all things 

 aquila took his bow
drew forth an arrow
which the feathers were brown and gold
aimed towards the sky
and let it go
the arrow arced high
burst in to stars
that fell
among them
a star to carry
a star to keep
a star to remember
a new queen
that would join
all living things
under the forests of richest green

 the summer queen
laid a single leaf upon the child’s chest
it glowed, then shrank
became part of her
this, i had never seen
for the leaf
carried all of natures’ magic
in an extraordinary child
whose birth
signified all that is good
upon the great good earth

the queens and kings
the princes and princesses
all of heartstone
gathered
to see a tiny girl
who had the power of a single leaf
that lay close to her heart
that she knew
of the wise ways
that what lies within us
means, you are never alone

our tiny girl
who, in her time
would become the greatest living being
lay quietly in the great hall
surrounded by magic and majesty 
past kings and queens
from above
their hearts filled with wonder
most of all,
love
 

the leaf as i came to know
came from the great earthen king
who had passed on long ago
that there is always a past
a history
that can never be broken
it will always last
forever heartstone
never alone


we celebrated until dawn broke
sweet faerie music filled the air
darting lights everywhere
whispering trees spoke
i felt within my heart
as i held my moondusts’ hand

The Ballad of Intimate Darkness

Through light of day and darkness of my heartbeat
My love for you, you shall see
Twelve Angel's smiles beyond this artists' cold feet
Whose legs once belonged to me
The sun and moon can marry not another
More perfect than you to me
And the evening can not break the time we share
My love for you, you shall see
A soft man you gave kisses to walked half the Earth
With legs that belonged to me
Whose only pure thought was that of a dove
To love and set you free

Now this is the time that your eyes may have read
My love for you, you shall see
If I am the shadow that can not move on
With legs that belong to me
The ink I have written will become the blood
And sin will haunt over me
Because of my veins, myself I have opened
My love for you , you shall see

The eyes of men, with envy and magic
Tempted your true love from me
And not to be jealous I smile as the victim
My love for you, you shall see
With feet that the demons or Angel's may swear
Are legs that belong to me

Yet her necklace massages her as if I
Were holding her closer to me
My body more dust than can be
Often my reflection she sees in the mirror
My love for her, she will see
And memories may move her hand to caress
Legs that once belonged to me

For the moon and the sun will eclipse out of love
As the legs that once belonged to me
Through heaven and hell I shall still feel her moisture
On the legs that once belonged to me
From the turning of wind on the teardrops of kin
And the burning with-in of my shadows and sin
Away, free as a bird she shall be
My fond love for her, she shall see

Missing you

Missing you feels like a headache
Missing you feels like the flu
I'm dying inside of me
Because I can't stop thinking of you

Wish you were here all the time
Wanting to see your smile
Dreaming of being with you again
But I know we'll be together in a while

I wish I was all grown up
Old enough to do as I like
I'd be with you all the time
And tell the gossip to take a hike

Because I don't care
You're my only concern
And when your skin touches mine
I can feel the burn

Every time you smile
I melt inside
And every time you say I love you
I think I'll die

And when I close my eyes
I picture your smiling face
And dream about you and I
One of these days

I'll love you always
And no one else I swear
They can say all they want about us
I really don't care

I'll be yours right till the end
And even longer
And no words could break us
Cause our love is stronger

And sometimes when I sleep
You talk to me
I can hear your gentle voice
And it sets me free

I love that you love me
So much you don't know
I just want to make you happy
Won't ever let you go

So when you dream tonight
Think of me
Cuase I'll be thinking of you
I can garentee

TO FALL IN LOVE

To fall in love could break
your heart,
It can cause great pain – 
right from the start.
You will feel in clover – that
is for sure,
And in most cases – love is
the cure.

Behold! The love heart can
beat so fast,
Just like the bomb – it can
just blast!
You’re blood can curdle, it
might seem that way,
It can make you walk - and
even sway.

The spirit of love we know
is a gift,
But it can also cause a silly
mad rift?
Sadness, too, can cause a
turmoil.
Especially when you’re Olive
Oil! 

Love is good – and love is
kind,
Love is also – so very blind!
Just love your heart – and
care as well,
In the house of love – you
shall both dwell.

Hand in hand you both will
walk,
When you do kiss – please
don’t choke!
To hold each other as tight
as you can,
Is like having a hug from
dear old gran!

So feel the love you have in
your heart,
And if you need to – have a
new start?
The beating love heart I now
do hear,
All I need now – is my own
special dear!

The lives we lead – sometimes
can need,
A loved one so special – to do
a good deed?
Always love, and always smile,
Then you’ll find love – if you
wait a while.

Summer Groom

A flower of gold how sweet you are, so colorful so vibrant as sweet as honeycomb,
your eyes are as the blues off the tip of a mountain, or is it as blue as the oceans deep, 

is it winter or is it spring, who can tell, when there is a mist of love that curves your beautiful hands
now it is summer filled with life of gold, only the heavens can understand what this life of happiness
could unfold
 
It lights up like a candle, like a flower it blooms, like a rabbit running through the meadow,
oh my sweet summer groom.

Atrocious Nightmares

When you fall asleep
That's when it starts
Explosions and screams
Terrorize your heart

As your panic grows
The blood flows
Through the streets
Atrocious nightmares
Never leave you alone

When you fall asleep
A bundle of Love
My cradle of sweet

I want to be the one
I have to be the one

Baby, let me be the sponge
Absorbs all your pain
Arms
Wrapped around you
Protects you again

Baby, let me be the rope
Saves you from a fall
Daddy
Standing by you
Giving it his all

When you fall asleep 
That's when it begins
Hysteria and mayhem
Spread 'neath your skin

As your fear mounts
The dead body counts
Jump like wounded beasts
Atrocious nightmares
Never leave you alone

When you fall asleep
A bundle of love
My cradle of sweet

I want to be the one
I have to be the one

Baby, let me be the sponge
Absorbs all your pain
Arms
Wrapped around you
Protects you again

Baby, let me be the rope
Saves you from a fall
Daddy
Standing by you
Giving it his all

I want to be the one
I have to be the one
Don't you see?

I'm the one.

Angel's Wings

The days, the weeks, the months have passed
It’s now almost two years
I thought that time was meant to heal my pain
And dry my tears
Instead my days are twice as long
My nights still hard to bear
My life is just a passing phase
My world without a care
I cannot still the voice inside me
Calling out for you
For all I ever wanted  
For all I ever knew
The winds of change keep blowing
Trying to set me free
But they don't understand
With you is where I need to be
I close my eyes, and there you stand
I watch you for a while
Your handsome face, your winning ways
Your famous carefree smile
You were the breath I breathe
You were the blood that runs my vein
Without you I will die
For you’re the medicine for my pain
So how do I move on 
When I still can't find my way
How do I forget 
And say goodbye to yesterday  
I need to know you’re with me 
In everything I do
Everywhere I go 
I need to know that you’re there too
So stay with me so I can face
Whatever tomorrow brings
Until it’s time for me to fly to you
With Angels wings..

TRUE LOVE, HE CAN'T HAVE

Awesome looks
Prosperous life
Professional job
Witty wise brains

Architectural home
Branded new car
Fashionable clothes
Elegant jewelry

Richness beyond average
Power beyond leverage
Authority beyond reach
High fallooting overall

All he can imagine
All he can buy
All he can have
All he can have

Yet, What he didn't know?
True love isn't a coy toy
Anywhere, I will bow
This will be before and now

We Shall Go On

Road to Conviction
Lips kissed so tender
hands held to heart
My mind racing

Oh how did I get here?
I answered and let you in
You spoke and I trembled
Sweet thereafter come near

Color so rampant 
Across my vision 
Invades this space
Heart so free

Race to the meadow
Green and fresh
Sweet smell lingers
My thoughts as pixels

Paint the canvas
unclear blue and red
wildly thrust
upon my breast

I will recall
As charming ladies do
The feeling and longing
We shall go on

Life As We Know It

Sometimes we wonder why we are even here on this earth.  With all the heartache, pain, and strife.  We ask ourselves why we have to go through these things.  We often ask what exactly we did to deserve for these things to happen.  There is no easy explanation.  Life, Love and Understanding is complicated. You can wait your whole life for that one chance for things to go your way, for things to fall into place.  Yet, when you think they have it can often just be a facade...a trick if you will.  We are left to pick up the pieces of what we once called our life.  Then you are left asking yourself...WAS IT ALL REALLY WORTH IT????  Our answer may be yes and it may be no.  It's hard to tell where the "chips may fall".  All the tears we shed, that fall down like rain in a storm.  When we love, most of us love with all of our heart, OUR SOUL, OUR WHOLE BEING.

myself broken

In the reflection of the mirror,
I see you.
I do.
I see you.
But not just you,
no, not just you,
I see me too.

Born different.
Born tougher.
You were,
and no one knew why.
Until now. 

The last of three
I was born,
most like my mother.
Born tougher 
and no one knew why but me.
Until now.

And without you
I'll feel just like myself-broken.

You were never around
until dinner time,
quietly, swiftly, efficiently
you moved across the kitchen
and I barely remember you
at all, at all, at all.
Yet
when you're gone,
I'll be exactly myself-broken.

Off to bed 
you had to go
to get up before dawn
to bring home money
so we could survive.
Seems I only remember saying 'goodnight'.
But I had food in my belly 
as I slept like a baby.
Thank you.

You gave me you,
not through interaction
getting to know each other
daughter/ mother.
But in my bones,
in my blood,
in my strength,
I am you.
You gave me the best of you.
But my weaknesses are me 
and the best part of me
is what you gave me.

In your dark,
who will I be?
What war will I fight?
What will I be strong for,
or despite?
Will I let people in?
Will I always love?
Yes, yes I will.
Because I will not be afraid.

When you go, 
leave me,
don't take me.
Take the me in myself-broken
and leave a stronger girl
a tougher girl.
A girl who knows 
when  to say 'no'.
And 'I love you'
and 'let me be'
and 'fix yourself before you 'fix' me'.

Yeah go ahead and take the me in myself-broken.
I love you.
And I'll be strong for you.
After you.
Always I will be brave.

God's Love Song

God's Love Song


You are the 'apple of my eye'
You've been gone for way too long
It's time for you to come back
Come back home.

It doesn't matter what you've done
Or where you have been
It's time for you to come back
You're Forgiven.

Come back home--to me
Come back home--you'll see...
         Love is gentle
         Love is kind
         Love wants to be around all the time
         Love is always there in what you're going through
That's my love for you...Oh..
That's my love for you.

I'm stretching out my arms again
Reach out and take my hand
I'll wipe away the past
I understand.

As a child I called your name
And gave new life to you,
It's time now, that you come back
I still love you.

Come back home--to me
Come back home--you'll see...
         Love is gentle
         Love is kind
         Love wants to be around all the time
         Love is always there in what you're going through
That's my love--for you...Oh...
That's my love--
For you...

I'm Free

God, I've questioned you so often On this journey we've been through... You've proven to me ore and ore, To just put my trust in you. I hear your gentle whisper Telling me so many things, Oh the joy beyond belief Just knowing you does bring. You've told me that I'm free, From condemnation here, And that with you I walk in wisdom And can take it anywhere. To use all for your glory, That you have blessed me with, For it is not my own, You have let me borrow it. Would I love the souls, You have placed upon my way? Would I share your glory, Each and every day? Would I come to realize, How real to me you are? Not some silent spirit, Somewhere among the stars. You're right here in my heart, You're in my husband's eyes, You're everywhere I look, You choose not to disguise. Oh Lord, my soul is singing, Your peace and love it holds, I pray that everyone I meet Takes one look at me and knows; That mighty is my loving God, Who wants good things for me, And through His grace and Mercy, My soul He has set free!

Just like Alcohol

More pathetic than ever
More pathetic I can't sever
The life a single bloke
The love to become broke


The first miss
The first kiss
the first trial diss
All leading to an end
Only for another send

Friends come and go
Others stay for the show
Nothing matters in the end
So their stories they end

There will always be more
or there are stories of bore

Pick and poison then hope it hits
Because love is like alcohol
So grab a bottle
and get drunk

Because She Loves You

There is nothing more magical,
nor precious, 
than the gift of motherly love. 

Your heart thaws, as she grasps you in a warm embrace 
Her smile fills you with joy,
She putts her soul into everything she dose, 
because, she love you. 

She gives you advice,
and she helps you,
she is your guardian angel 
because she loves you. 

It is true,
You will have quarrels. 
About little miner things. 
But, at the end of the day,
She still loves you,
and you love her,
because she's you mom,
and you wouldn’t have it another way!

I Just Wanna Make You Happy

??I Just Wanna Make You Happy??

Sometimes I wished 
problems between us
didn't exist...

Cause I hate arguing
with you, it's just wasted
time.

I rather love you then fight.

I'll try harder next time 
to think things through, 
so you won't be mad at
me.

I just wanna make you 
happy, give you the best 
of me.

Treat you like Queen,
never letting go.

You mean more to me 
than you'll ever know.

It's amazing when we 
get along, we just can't 
get enough of each other...

And that's how 
we should be.

Let's not let negativity 
get the best of us, cause 
in my arms is where you 
belong...

Every day, every night,
every second, minutes,
hours...

Until the day I die,
I will love you all 
my life.

Deja Vu (Song)

I gave you  all of me,
Your wants became too much,
And all of my somethings
You saw as not enough,
But now you are wanting,
Everything you passed up,
Your lies are frustrating,
But still I can't pass up,

This pain, this place,
Is looking too familiar to me,
The same mistakes
Are coming back around,
Your games, your face,
Are secretly whispering to me,
I can't escape,
Because emotions tear me down,

Hold on, hold on,
Tell me what I'm running into,
Stay gone, stay gone,
Is what I want to do,
So long, so long,
Why can't I say these words to you,
When I know, I know,
This will be Deja Vu

As I am anticipating
Loving you and no one else
My entire body's shaking,
Because I promised myself,
That I would never be back here,
A toy sitting on  your shelf,
We always begin in last gear,
By later, there's nothing left...

This pain, this place,
Is looking too familiar to me,
The same mistakes
Are coming back around,
Your games, your face,
Are secretly whispering to me,
I can't escape,
Because emotions tear me down,

Hold on, hold on,
Tell me what I'm running into,
Stay gone, stay gone,
Is what I want to do,
So long, so long,
Why can't I say these words to you,
When I know, I know,
This will be Deja Vu

Why am I
Addicted to you,
Saying goodbye
never comes true,
This is what 
it always comes to,
You constantly on my mind!

Why must I 
stay thinking of you
Coming back
Thinking I love you
Losing control
when I touch you,
Wasting all of my time...

This pain, this place,
Is secretly whispering to me
Your games, your face,
Are looking too familiar to me,
The same mistakes
Emotions seem to tear me down,
I can't escape
It's coming back around,

Hold on, hold on,
is all I ever do for you,
Stay gone, stay gone,
I do and don't want you to do,
I love you, I hate you,
Everything I say is true,
I hate you, I love you...
This is our Deja vu....

PERSONS ARE BLESSINGS

Popping kernel thoughts on my mind
Can not stop but put them in write
So, I search a pen to twine and wind
Before I run dry and sickness bites

I thought of the many blessings I have
My fingers and toes both outnumbered
My life been unceasingly filled with love
Letting me feel: special and remembered

The hundred persons I have met and dealt
They have been all very loving and kind
Good or bad my heart they svelte and melt
Allowing my growth and peace of mind

They look at us
As if there is fuss
As we are far different
They see this an impediment?

Wish they have known
A friend I found in you
Regardless of faith and color
We tried to implore and explore

The Summer of the Winter Sky

It was time for the leaves to fall,
The fields to turn white,
The birds to leave for faraway lands-
And the long cold lonely nights.

Seemed like for eternity
She hadn’t had a smile -
Frozen was the world around
Lonely she walked  for miles.
Dead were the blossoms in her garden,
And love was about to die-
And yet she prayed to her unseen friend -
For the summer of the winter sky!


Not a song was heard at dawn,
Only the echo of the wind-
In the misty field of corn
Not a farmer was seen!
A wait so long, so painful to bear
Left alone with no one so near
She was lost in her own reverie-
With tears in her dreamy eyes.
And she prayed as her heart cried-
Longing for the summer of the winter sky.



No one knows who heard her prayer
Lost amidst the silence
And yet an early morning bud 
Blossomed in her garden!
Suddenly a little sparrow was seen 
High on the branch of the willow tree
Singing a song as if to welcome-
Amidst the grey sky, a sun so warm.
And love then again knocked her door
Promising a life like never before-
And like a happy child  she opened her eyes
For it was summer for the winter sky!

TASTE OF LIFE

i take a bite to a thing called "life"..

sweetness...
shared with friends and families
on occassions where there are joys
though it doesn't involves toys...

bitterness..
as failures, disappointments flows..
at times sanity and mind blows
for it leaves tears and sorrows...

face-to-face with these maladies..
dear, let me be your one & only lady..

i don't have silver nor gold
nor do i have a hot body or beauty..
all i can assure is my deepest sincerity..
and of a heart containing purity...

stay by my side, i'll try to abide..
lifting your downcasted hurt pride..
together, we will share a slide..
dancing on waves until relapsing tide..

i will not speak...
nor will i try to peek .
those crumbling emotions at peak..
let it fall, make them weak...

i will share my strength..
i will render my care..
i will try to shine a light..
in your world, you said to be dark..

*    It Leaps upon the turning ground                                                                               winter is past the sun                                                                                               does bring the warmth of dancer’s spring                                                                     love rises buds begun                                     *                                                                                                                              The scent of coming flowers sweeps                                                                             away death’s sway new life                                                                                            It Leaps upon the turning ground                                                                             death lies untrue, no wife              *                                                                                                                                 It Leaps upon the turning ground                                                                                 the flowers, birds do care                                                                                             as life does fly towards the sky                                                                                    the song of love we share                                                                                 *                                                                                                                                As newness flames the hearts of kin                                                                            She sleeps only no breath                                                                                               It Leaps upon the turning ground                                                                                 but life steps forth, she weds

POWERFUL HUG

POWER HUG

Oh! I am feeling down.. sad
I'm missing my mom and dad
Though, I am a grown-up lad (lass)
Can you offer me your hug?

My dear friend, my heart's been broken
Built - dreams; whispered - wishes, stolen
To wrong persons, I have fallen
Can you offer me your hug?

The weather is getting too cold
Though, I'm fully clothed never gone bold
Still, shivers rocking roll and roll
Can you offer me your  hug?

My whole day has been that good 
Happy and loved is everyone's mood
Hence, I searched and eat my favorite food
Can you offer me a hug?

Any emotions and situation you are in
Even if you are rich or without means
It is alright.. Do hug, hug is not a sin
Give it free. Heartfelt, full from within.

True Beauty

Intro
It is said that beauty is in the eye of the beholder, there is only one I behold as the 
one beautiful enough to see the true beauty within.

I
I wish that I could tell her how I feel
I wish that I could show her I'm for real
I'm going to give her all that she would need
Listen to my story and take heed
II
The sun may rise, the sun may set
The power of her beauty they will never get
Many have tried without any rest
To obtain the beauty that she possess
III
She has the smile of a baby
But the soul of a lady
She is in search of that perfect love
The only one that comes from above
IV
When I look into her eyes, I can see the pain
Wherever she looks, it just seems to rain
But through every situation she has stood tall
And kept herself from a great fall
V
Some may ask if she is real
Can one be this perfect without a seal?
To know the truth of what I've seen
Just look in the mirror to know what I mean
VI
We have held hands throughout the years
We have also shed many of tears
One thing that I am proud to see 
You have become a beautiful woman to me

Forget About Me (Does He?) (Song)

Girl it's been awhile,
Since we loved now,
But I'm lying here tonight,
Thinking of you,
Wanting to touch you,
Dreaming of holding you tight,
Girl we were so young
But we were ready,
To give ourselves to one another,
I had to call you,
Because I saw you,
And it seems you have a new lover,
And I'm wondering,

Is he loving you?
Like I used to do?
Does he make you see,
how we used to be?
Does he care for you?
Is he there for you?
Does he....
Help you forget about,

Me and you?
If he only knew,
how we used to be,
girl just you and me,
Now I'm missing you
while he's kissing you,
Does he...
Help you forget about me?

See, I don't want to cause,
any downfalls,
I just had to speak my mind,
Because I love you,
Still thinking of you,
Even after all this time,
Just want to show you,
That I still know you,
You are always in my thoughts,
And you will always be,
the world to me,
No matter how much time is lost,
So, I'm wondering,

Is he loving you?
Like I used to do?
Does he make you see,
how we used to be?
Does he care for you?
Is he there for you?
Does he....
Help you forget about,

Me and you?
If he only knew,
how we used to be,
girl just you and me,
Now I'm missing you
while he's kissing you,
Does he...
Help you forget about me?

Time to Add More Love

The world's just not the same
This empire in decline
Roses don't smell as sweet
Only grow half their size

And I say....

Baby, doesn't it make you feel sad inside?

And I say...

Baby, doesn't it make you want to cry?

Let's protect ourselves 
From the coming flood
Won't need no bullets
Just our shield of love

Let's protect ourselves
From the coming storm
Won't need no raincoats
While love keeps us warm

Time to put more wood
On the dying fire
Of hope

Time to add more love
Gonna raise this
Sinking boat

And I say....

Baby, doesn't it make you feel sad inside?

And I say....

Baby doesn't it make you want to cry?

You're all I need
To get through this 
Doom and gloom
Your love for me
And my love for you.

Boyfriend

This was not what I planed
It was never my intention
I went to see a concert with my friend
Along with his cute cousin

This is not something I’m used to
But I went to take you for a run
My amazement for you
Caught your attention

Yes I do know your name
I love you to death
You are my experimental gain
Relax, its human nature

It’s not what nice boys do
But we’re not all good
In fact we’re quite wicked
It’s hard to behave

Parents say that’s so wrong
Wrong to love someone
Someone who is gay
Gay is what I am

FRIENDS

my angel my dove
the one I loved 
I wanted to fight 
but she gave up
I made her cry 
she stood beside
I lost my girl
so I lost my life
the times weren't good 
the times were rough
and the angel in her 
has had enough
a friend like you 
is a friend I need 
I hope to god
again our paths will meet
the time may not be near
but never is the word I fear

The Freckled Face of a Girl

~~~
Dappled grey horses
sweat crusted and weary
hooves drifting dust
lift a day
passing dreary
The harness bells faded
reigned in at the rill
a cool running brook
near the base of our hill
~
My eyes
I'm a lad
scant older than four
brought visions to mind
full of wonders in store
A wagon decked out
like a big city market
he lifted the side
then he shook out the carpet
~
Our old kitchen door
screamed out
lack of oil
a kettle
clanged gently
just set on to boil
E'er mother's voice shouted
"I think it's the Pox
the old folks have died
I've been digging their plots"
~
"My father's in bed
and they won't let me near"
the stranger walked by
with a smile
mussed my hair
Went in with a bag
full of magic he grows
started mixing a broth
made with god only knows
~
Tip toed on a box
dragged in from the yard
through windows
he folded
gunpowder with lard
The screams of my father
sent tears to my eyes
they rubbed him completely
in spite of his cries
~
They fed him the broth
a few drops at a time
I climbed off the box
with his horses in mind
"The horses love apples"
I turned with a whirl
peeking out from his wagon
the freckled face
of a girl
~
In moments I knew her
a lifetime
it seemed
a most likeable friend
who knew all the schemes
As father got better
t'was time to move on
her father
a doctor
a peddler
a con
~
He'd done us a service
we could never repay
though he sold us an organ
an' stool
by the way
Each year they returned
once or twice
they dropped by
little freckle faced Mary
soon
the girl of my eye
~
They'd rest a few days
with each visit
it's true
she wrote the best love songs
while I wrote the tunes
Then one night it happened
'neath moon and the stars
consummating a love
that would forever
be ours
~
He stumbled upon us
but said not a word
in the morning
so early
fading echoes we heard
Ne'er again did we see them
though rumors
of peril ...
my parents expired
to a place 'neath the barrow
~
Five years had surpassed
isolation and grief
knocked a lamp
from the table
when I'd fallen asleep
The house nearly cinder
an' I felt like the fool
only item I'd saved
was the old organ stool
~
Just sat there and watched
till the sun broke the morn
in the distance
an echo
I'd heard years before
Then over the rise
sweat crusted and weary
two dappled grey horses
on a day
passing dreary
~
The horses reigned in
right next to the rill
that sweet running brook
at the base of our hill
A woman climbed down
took a step
to the glade
the dawning day's sun
streaming in to pervade
~
A light in my heart
jumped a thousand times fold
the smile in her eyes
and the story's been told
The tears
fell in rapture
though nothing was said
embraced
now with Mary
she'd returned from the dead
~
She unhitched the horses
I lifted the side
"The years have been kind"
I said
lifting her pride
"Are you my daddy?"
I turned with a whirl
peeking out from the wagon
the freckled face
of a girl

NOW OR NEVER


I am small never been tall..
I take risk but i scare to fall..
I put my heart as well as my soul..
Ultimately and completely my all...

They said i have a big amazing heart..
What they don't know it's only like a quart..
I love the character and the art..
These all that i always regard..

Hugs and kisses are for free..
These are simple gestures, for free..
I do not want nor need any fee..
Wholeheartedly, i'll be doing it with glee..

I give as much as i can give...
I love as much as i can love..
All i know is that i have only one life to live...
Whatever, i desire to do i will now...

For if i may not do it now...
There might come a time..
I will regret why i did not do...

And Then there was you

There was hue...There was dew..
A lot of smiles...& some tears too...
Lot of friends....trusted enemies few...
Known to me was bliss and happiness...
                                                                              And then there was You....

You walked in through the mystical light...
Full of blissful learning and pure delight...
I wished all harm be out of your sight...
I tried to help and be there with all my might...

You had many a story to tell.. ... lies shared little did i know..
One day all that i selflessly gave ...would be turned against my own soul...
I walked beside you in complete faith of all i was told....till God could take no more...
He stole the moments and tore me apart to maybe save and take control...
Why did the truth not come forth from you...i will never fathom...
When all i asked of you was simple facts..and never judged or held your heart for ransom...
In truth we could have served our noble cause...in it's pure light we could have stood so tall..
Why then did you not think to protect my heart...and let it in this well of lies fall..

Did you not but once stop and think of how i might feel...
When you realized all my spirit one day your untruth would steal...
For all the love and care i gave ... i got back a handful of allegations....
Enough to destroy my heart and soul and demolish all my aspirations...
Why i ask my angels did i deserve this humiliation...
So much strife , scathe , suffering and frustrations....
All i gave was undying care and genuine love...stood by you always...
Never did i let you down when needed..never did i walk away when your call heeded...
For all that was shared...Why wasn’t i spared....
To give me an ounce of honesty ..back i wish the person cared....

As life moves on...with some hurt and some hope too.....
As i try and remain to my life's purpose true....
I remember once i had my innocent heart and soul that believed in people and truth..
                                                                        ...And then there was You

God's Own Son

As Mary rocks her baby boy
She's filled with sadness, filled with joy.
She looks upon that tiny face
And sees hope in every race.

Her heart is filled with a mothers glow
And she never wants to let him go.
She'll see him run around and laugh and play
And longs to keep him safe each day.

His life won't be an easy one,
His destiny hard, as God's own Son.

Mary sees the miracles he will perform,
The lepers healed and free from scorn.
The lame will walk, the blind will see.
She sees his love will set us free.

And she sees him on a cross.
She feels his pain and feels our loss.
She knows his life must come to this.
She sheds a tear and gives a kiss.

His life won't be and easy one,
His destiny hard, as God's own Son.

So as Christmastime draws near
And we are all so "busy" here,
With shopping, baking, trees of green
Let's ask, what does this really mean?

Let's take a moment from the fuss,
And think of all their gifts to us:
A mother's love, a baby boy,
Peace and comfort, love and joy.

For he was horn for everyone,
His destiny hard, as God's own Son.

RUNNING TIME

Yesterday...
I dreamt of becoming a nurse..
So, I studied hard, give my best to my course..
Thus, smiles and praises of patients who came to my care, I incur...

Today...
I am in midway of my dreams...
Attitude and character, I learn to trim..
Achieving memories of lifetime gleam..

Someday..
I will also walk down the aisle...
Wearing elegantly white satin gown..
There at the end, the man I'll be with will be waiting...

Tomorrow...
Who knows what will it bring..
All I know now is I will do everything..
Pursuing risks at hand not feel guilt after that I never did..

JOURNEY ONWARDS

Tiny bits of beauty
I seem to florish
Showered acts of piety
I am mold and polished

Experience I have enough
Gosh! How it teach me allot
Even life is that so tough
Still it didn't stop me to laugh

Here in this arid land
I learned things beyond
Things I was once never do
Here to keep up, I need too

Indeed it's been a great journey..
There are so many worries
So much so are the stories
Then again it is a part of my life history

I'm looking forward
Determined always to move onward
With one foot step affront
I am more prepared for a staunt..

THE TOWER OF LIGHT

Along came twilight

The air grew still

Soft shadows

Soft light

The moon rose above the hill

 

We pulled in our deep spun coverings

Watched a moon

Rise silently and bright

 

Towards the hill

A light could be seen

Glowing in the distant green

A meaningful look

Of futures’ past

In the world of the Faerie Queen

 

The night

Young and still

The moon, bright

Beckoning

To the tower of light

 

I held her hand

Together, across the moon

We flew

Faerie magic

Faerie dust

Across the night

To the tower of light

The Crossroads

Caught between the crossroads My mind was boggled…..I couldn't choose. Both ways led to happiness, But one I’d eventually lose. Both were marked by beauty That was bestowed by God above; And as I stood there so confused I yearned to find my true love. Baffled I took a step forward And I followed the path to the right, But halfway through I realized That the other one was equally fine So I turned and headed back, Back to the point where the crossroads did meet. Now I hesitated to take the other road since I knew that I would soon retreat. I sat myself down and took off my bag, My head just throbbing due to the heat I sipped on some water and quenched my thirst, As I stretched my aching feet Then suddenly a gust of wind blew in my face… The dust blinding me momentarily; When I opened my eyes….I realized the crossroads were gone…… a straight road remained

Without You

If I was granted just one wish
A wish that might come true
I’d wish with all my heart and soul
For yesterday and you
If only I could turn back time
I’d go back to the start
If only you could hold me 
While I slowly fall apart
Questions left unanswered
So many words unsaid
Letters that I wrote will now 
Forever go unread
Why you went I’ll never know...or 
Why you had to die...or
Why you had to leave me
Why you never said goodbye
Looking to my future
All I see is pain and sorrow
Without you I’m shattered
Without you there’s no tomorrow
Without you I’m so alone
I don’t know where I’m bound
Without you I’m lost…
Without you I can’t be found
However dark the nights
I’m told the sun will rise again…but
How can I see sunshine
When my world’s so full of pain
Please don’t leave me here alone
Please kiss away my fears
Lee, I need you with me
Please come home and dry my tears
Hold me hun, just one more time
The way I used to know
I need to feel you here
I’m just not ready to let go
I miss your face..your smile..your touch
I miss your many charms
Days are long ..my nights are cold
Not being in your arms
But ...what I miss the most is when
I look at you and see
The love I know you're feeling
When you’re looking back at me
I know I must be strong now
For this mountain I must climb
But how do I survive without
The love of my life time
You wasn’t just my husband
But my friend and lover too
And no one in this world 
Will ever take the place of you..


For Lee...the love of my life..
I will miss you forever

Your wife...Bree x

Thief of Hearts

Thief of Hearts 

You came into my peaceful life
Stole my fragile heart
Like a thief in the night

You took my love 
But somehow you could not find 
The love for me 
That I prayed you might

My soul is crying 
I feel like dying 
But I must not 
Give up the fight

Language Stillest

Language Stillest

I gazed
I saw
The little rose petal
Red, violet, blue, pink, white
Colours hazed
Flying by the lip of the bridge

Put my palm 
to own it
Zoom! It shuns
just an inch away.
Follow it again
the millionth time
can’t hold it still.

The fragrance tells
The warmth! Belonging!
Warmth is
Language stillest
Unsopken but 
Wholly apprehended

Sweet rose be mine,
I pray.

1 STARFISH

SOMETIMES I FEEL LIKE I'M ONE BIG BEAUTIFUL STARFISH
DYING TO GET TO THE BEACH
TRYING TO FIND MY PASSION 
OR FIND THE TREASURE BENEATH
SOMETIMES I FEEL LIKE A STARFISH MISSING ALL OF THE BEAUTIFUL SAND
SOMETIMES I FEEL SO ALONE,AS IF I HAVE NO TRUE FRIENDS
SOMETIMES I FEEL SO ALONE AND I FEEL LIKE IM A STARFISH AWAY FROM HOME
IN A DESSERT WHERE I DON'T BELONG
WANTING TO GET BACK TO THE OCEAN
WANTING TO BE EXACTLY WHERE I'M SUPPOSED TO BE
WANTING THE COURAGE TO JUST BE ME
BUT I GUESS I HAVEN'T MUSTERED UP ENOUGH COURAGE TO JUST ACCEPT
THE TRUTH
THAT I'M NOT A STARFISH,I AM A CHILD OF GOD
AND I CAN START SOMEHTHING GREAT NO MATTER HOW OUT OF PLACE I FEEL
I'M GOD'S CREATION,I AM HIGHLY FAVOURED
SO I WILL LOVE MYSELF 
AND LOVE MY NEIGHBORS
AS MY GOD COMMANDED ME TO DO SO
AND STAY IN DAILY DEVOTION
AND THIS LITTLE STARFISH
CAN GO BACK TO THE OCEAN

Always and Forever

I wonder if the day will dawn
That I will wake to find
My life is not revolving round
The world I left behind
The days turned into months
And now the months have grown to years
But still the thought of you
Can turn my laughter into tears
We’d found a love so special
But we lost it all somehow
The chance we had was gone
And all our dreams are over now
So how do I survive each day
How do I go on
When everything I ever had
And ever loved is gone
Although you’re now with someone else
With whom your share your life
She’ll never wear your ring
For I will always be your wife
She may spend her nights with you
And wake with you each day
She may have tomorrow
But I had yesterday
Yesterdays so filled with all
The memories of our youth
The joy, the pain, the tears, the fears
The laughter, lies and truth
Memories of our songs and places
Things we did together
Memories of a love so young
We knew would last forever
Memories of the boy I met
The teenage Romeo
But who you are today
Is all the you she’ll ever know
Sometimes in my darkest thoughts
I wish I’d never learned
What it’s like to find real love
And have that love returned
It’s made it so much harder
To be with somebody new
For no one else can have
That part of me I gave to you
You’re still my world, my heart, my soul
You’re still what life’s about
The one I'm living for
The one I have to live without
I know I can’t hold onto you
But still I can’t let go
Because with you I found
The greatest love I’ll ever know...

~COAT OF ARMS~

COAT OF ARMS


Last night I couldn't sleep,for thinking only you...
As I wrapped in warm embrace,your spirit tinted blue
To oust away thine pangs,in hopes to see thee smile...
I'll yoke ye 'pon my shoulders,to carry through this mile

To trade your tears of sorrow,and see them shed in joy...
I'd jest for thine amusement,and be your favorite toy
For thine malady been expelled,I'd invoke it banished 'way...
Taking it 'pon mine self,so you've strength to seize th' day

Though I'm not an king,nor prince 'pon ivory steed...
Th' possessions I've procured here,are thine if felt th' need
I'll sweep thee off thy feet,if not familiar with th' waltz...
To breathe ye 'cross th' ballroom,as an feather floating 'loft

Mark mine words I state here,and hold me to their true...
I'll prove I 'steem thee precious,as unfeigned I surely do
Just promise me one thing,that next time when your down...
You'll wear these words as armor,'til I mend thy broken crown

LET LOVE BACK

Baby I 'm thinking what I 've done 
That I 'd easily let you gone 
I never meant to let you down 
Now I 'm miserable and drown 

I wanna tell you I 'm sorry 
My life now is in misery 
I 'll try to make things out 
Lets back our love at south 


Baby I 'm not here if not for you 
Lets back the memories of us two 
This time I 'm talking too much 
'Coz i needed you that such 


I can be some hard to understand 
But please bear my promise and take my hand 
For the times that I cant be there 
I 've regretted it, please love hear 


For the times that I have nothing at all 
You we're there every time I fall 
I 'm afraid to continue this life 
Without you there's no tomorrow 's light 


My life now is not an easy round 
Hoping for our second time around 
Give me another chance for the feelings I have 
'Coz Its gonna be real love.

You and Me

You and Me
By Tom Brown

Nothing matters when I see you
From the moment I find you
All the drama hides

You are an innocent soul
pure in every way
Thats why Im greatful to have you
everyday

You are my treasure
you are my light
Because we take away each others pain
through the other's might

Through the meetings
Through each date
I see those eyes
I see no hate

You fit like a glove
like a puzzle piece lost then found
We laugh about how we met
but the secret shall never be found

I enjoy what has started
I think about it every time we've parted
With nothing but memories
and a kiss that leaves me wanting

The seed is planted
growing more and more each time we part
I hope you feel the same
Because this is what is in my heart.

Cheater

A stab in the back,
a feeling that I cannot squelch,
a horrible impending heartbreak,
as the news leak out,
time seems to stop knowing,
that you have caught him,
in your home with not you,
but your, best friend.
he tries to make it up,
saying to just move on like it never happened,
but your trust is shattered like;
a thousand tiny pieces of glass
waiting to sinking in your flesh to hurt,
and betray you once again.
a cheaters lie of saying I love you.
yet knowing its not the truth.

The Moment

The moment I saw you
Only for a few minutes
Of the site I see
Never realizing my life
Would change for the better of me

My heart was running full speed
Not being aware again
We only had an hour to spare
I know this may sound weird 
But this moment was the day
I got my life on track close to the end

I knew I fell madly in love
When my eyes connected with yours
Standing face to face
It felt like something had fell
Out of heaven from above

This has hit me so hard
Knocking me off my feet
Feeling I need a few minutes to breathe
Only time and space can give
Cause I sense my love running
So much deep

Somehow for that brief moment
You completely blew my mind
In my eyes seeing two different people
With two different personalities
Seem to have different life styles
But only one heart which were completely stolen
In that only one moment
During that one beautiful sunny winter morning

I knew I fell madly in love
When my eyes connected with yours
Standing face to face
It felt like something had fell
Out of heaven from above

That day I knew I had to see you
Only I didn’t know how or when
My heart started beating fast
When you said it was nice to meet you
I hope we can meet again
Wow it was like a blur
You caused my mind to stir
The ground started to spend around
Only I knew I couldn’t make a sound
All I could do was to catch my breathe
So I decided to take a seat and have a rest

I knew I fell madly in love
When my eyes connected with yours
Standing face to face
It felt like something had fell
Out of heaven from above

Oh my gosh what have you done to me
I once was caged
But now your words have set me free
I didn’t know how to react
With these feelings so bright
Only I know I dream of you
Each and every night

I never thought someone would look at me 
The way I see myself in your eyes
I never knew how my movement would change
With you in this life time
I never felt this fire burning inside of me
Nor I never felt this wetness between my thighs
If this feels like love I never want it to end
Cause finally knew the moment
When my life started to begin

DESCRIBING DADDY

My daddy is a big hotty
With energetic strong body
Mashallah! Sometimes bit naughty
Even more awesome witty

We talked and chat a few
In a website I found and choose
He said he is tall
Yet for me his height bit small

He said I'm his baby
I don't mind as his my daddy
He as sweet as any candy
His looks likes a dandy

Been a year we share
Of anything we talk dare
Though, events seems unfair
Really, to him I care

Twix that's his chocolate
I bought and tried to ate
With sweet caramel inside
With him he sets me a side

To when, I can see him real
That, I can't know and feel
All I know we made a deal
That, Insha'Allah we meet heel to heel

FACT: MISSING YOU

The fact that i am missing you...
I feel happy but a little blue..
I wish you and I are near..
That each time I feel like this I'll go rear..

The fact that I miss you..
Each corner of the room I glance, seems you are present..
I am owed by Your awesome presence..
I despice the truth of your absence..

The fact that I miss you..
I will find a way to reach you..
By e-mail; by phonecall; by going to you..
For this way, I might be with you..

The fact that I miss you..
I will reminisce some memories we have..
Of the times, we are sharing joy and love..
May we be blessed more by God above..

The fact that I miss you..
I will wish and whisper a prayer for you..
I want you be safe and be happy as I wil..
I will manage that by these I hugged you...

LETTING GO

i never imagined love could be that way..
it can make you happy or gay...

happiness..
this what im feeling..
when someone made an offering..
of a love that has no ending..

i am a woman..
who deserves a patient gentleman..
who wants and needs love..
that will surely stand the test of time..

so i accepted..
the love that has been offered..
i, full of hopes and dreams..
giving all my love without hesitation..

as days passed by..
something happened i can feel..
this guy that made me feel..
my dream love can be real..
walked away with his heel..

sadness..
engulfed my whole being...
when all of a sudden he is leaving..
thus, tearing breaking my heart bleeding..

people surrounding me observed..
maybe you are not the man i deserved..
they said: "don't be bothered"
for a better man and love will come after..

so, i started to think..
of the times we spend together..
i decided: what should still be remembered..
to a love which isn't meant forever..

i gathered up the sworned pieces..
of what still left in traces...
my strengths; potentials and dreams..
my goals; family and friends..

now, i am recovering..
Ever determined to keep ongoing..
Continuously praying for God's guidance and blessing..
Thinking life's treasures will still be coming..

Silently

Тhe ending winter broke 
the last crystal day
I thank you for thee are
to light my inner flame.

The linden spread its planets-
a scent of spring and laugher
I thank you,dear,for you felt
despite them all, my order.

The winds with airy palms
are waving stifling wheat.
I thank you for the hands
wherewhit you swung my locks.

Ashy autumns shiver,
telling me to let you go,
but you catch every tremor
sighted by my stilly lips

And words not leaves are falling
Yes, this leafy autumn 
for us is like an altar,
I swear,I need you to bear. 

Look, silence already raps
at our foggy window.
I thank you for you're here
and still have faith in me.

The willow tree

Upon the good river
A willow tree grew
The days passed by
Never once did the willow sigh
 
Of sunsets and dawns
Winters and springs
The days passed by
Never once did the willow sigh
 
Summers and autumns
The turning leaves
Brown and gold fell and did die
Never once did the willow tree sigh

A cool wind blew
Through its' branches
To its' heart it crept and let it lie
Never once did the willow sigh

When fledglings left the nest
To the blue sky
The joyous flight test
Never once did the willow sigh

When the snow fell deep
The river froze and the earth stood still
When nature tried to crack the tree with all its ' will
Never once did the willow sigh
 

When lovers came in soft sunlight
In summers' crowning glory
They kissed beneath the sky
Only once then, did the willow sigh

Happiness

Today i found Happiness such a wonderful Joy,
the man of my life treats me like a man and not a boy,
he is heaven in my eyes a wonderful sight,
love,love,love such a delight,
and when i am scared or feeling down,
he comes and saves me,
he takes away my frown,
i can be who i am, 
its finally nice,
to met the man of my dreams 
i don't have to think twice,
then that day came when i walked down that aisle,
tears in my eyes the brightest smile,
i met my best friend what can i say, 
being married has made me the happiest everyday.

Untitled (A Mother's Poem)

Last night I had a vision
of a magic hummingbird
Who’d come with mystic wisdom
to a question he once heard

My dream became a story 
that was written just for you
upon a prism rainbow   
he created as he flew

As he spun his magic tale 
it was painted on the sky
along with graceful notes of
an enchanted lullaby

The evanescent melody 
starts; “Once upon a time”
and generates perfection: 
unveiled memories, sublime

Long ago, and far away
you awoke and came to me
and commenced an epoch query
for a child of only three

I picked you up and kissed you
and you gave a kiss to me.
”Have we always been together, Mom?”
“Will we always be?” 

“I think so.  Don’t you?”   I asked
and my eyes filled up with tears
as if our lives could be summed up 
by the number of our years.

Your tired little eyes exposed
your innocence of youth 
but your brilliant mind brought 
peace, quickly reconciled by truth

Entranced in thought you pondered
then you turned to answer me
“I think so, for sure!”  
you insisted, most emphatically

Like links upon the chain of life
joined by unseen tether.
You chirped your explanation,
“We’ve always been together!”

“When Mema was so tiny,
that you couldn’t even see,
Nana was seed in her,  
You were in that seed, with me!”

I closed my eyes and held you
then I kissed your little head 
“Yep.  It’s true.”  you said.  “Always.”
and you shuffled back to bed

Just when you think it’s over
and it’s reached a wondrous end
The end is a beginning
and we round the magic bend

I dreamed about a hummingbird
luminous and blue
Who emanated mystic wisdom 
into rainbows as he flew

The melody diffuses
as a harmony of hues.
Surrender then crescendo
into eternities’ good news

The orchestra of life explodes
and our hummingbird returns
to weave his final tapestry
sprouting life from ashes burned

This is a perfect story
and it has a perfect end
giving rise to new creation
and the bird will fly again

Many, many years from now
As you gaze at the night sky
You’ll think about this story
then remember me and sigh

Glance up to the crescent moon
In its’ stead you’ll see my smile
tell me all about your day
and we’ll visit for a while

Gently I’ll caress your cheek
with breeze upon the air
and sprinkle you with moonlight 
so you know that I am there

We’ve always been together,
and we shall always be.
A little birdie told me so,
as you did, when you were three.

The Anne Marie Gale

There she sits, ready to fly, to be free and take sail
A beautiful ship, the love of my life, The Anne Marie Gale
Ready to take on the harshest storms, the hurricanes
The darkness and the rain, typhoons, and all the pain
She sails off, leaving me behind, lost forever in vain
I watch you slip away, my beautiful Anne Marie Gale 
When you were once here, in the harbors of my heart 
Set off to sail, and to take the wind, as I watch you part 

You are a beauty, an angel, sails are your wings of the sea, 
where behind your veil, You look out ahead, and see 
all your flags are flying, your sails of pearls are furled
On your mast your colors, are waving you on to your destiny
Here you took my heart, and now you are taking the world
Leaving me a shallow old man, to cry alone and wail
Where have I gone? Lost in time, with The Anne Marie Gale
 
Will you return someday? And return to a place once home? 
Where I stand at the oceans’ edge in the waves, sand and foam 
I watch from the light houses, and islands, their tallest towers 
Waiting your return, counting each day, each second, each hour
I feel the wind and rain pour through my veins, ripping my soul
Taking my heart to the depths, the cold dark oceans of your power
That I cannot escape, nor do I dare let go the ropes holding me
Binds me, keeping me tied forever a knot, only time unfolding me  

Soon the winds of a gale will take me, and my strength will soon fail
As I wait out my life in wonder of the beautiful Anne Marie Gale
Do you ever remember me from your heart? See me through the veil?
Or are you set free by your sails forever with the winds and gales?
That take you into the adventures you seek, of The Anne Marie Gale
A beautiful clipper, built from the heart of my woods, and of golden rails
The storms of my heart, a gold jewel of the sea, the wind in your sail
Forever I will be a ghost aboard the pure heart of the Anne Marie Gale,

IN TO HER EYES

Capped with soft golden hair
Her blue eyes opened
She smiled
At once
She knew I was there

 
I reached for her tiny hand
She gripped my finger
With fierce intensity
I kissed her forehead
I knew
I loved her completely

 
The girl child
Of Moondust and I
Born in summer
She cradled her
To her breast
As we looked out
And saw in to her eyes
Of sunsets
And eagles flying in the west

HANDS, EYES, EARS AND HEART

A hand to hold that's what she wish..
A hand who will not let go...
Rather a hand that holds not tight nor loose..
A hand that is firm to touch...

Eyes that even without words speak, she asks..
Eyes that looks not only of the outside..
Rather eyes that scrutinizes details..
Eyes who when stares, hugs and encourages..

Ears that listens attentively, she says..
Ears which when hears doesn't judge..
Rather, ears sensitive to feelings hidden by tones..
Pair of ears that seeks to clarify..

A heart that clearly understands, she adds..
Heart that is not of richness from golds..
Rather, a heart swelling with pureness..
One heart beating all specially love...

Lonely

You are always on my mind
When he is by my side
You were the one that hurt me
He was the one I never notice, and never thought could be

Till he came and told me he loved me
You were the one that caused me pain
When he was thinking I was the main thing
You were the one who let me go
He was the one who took hold

Now you are the one who's lonely
And had a let a good thing go
He's the one who have it made
Cause he have me to claim

It all came down to Love

So today I decided to put my hand on paper
And exhale the invaded privacy of my inner most
Tell of what my forbidden heart to love has been up to
Turning and rumbling inside of me
Creating a turmoil feeding my soul with pleasure

Yes... It is love this poor being of me is trying to express
Residing deep inside the unknown of my heart
The depths even I was scared to adventure
Full of leisure, pleasure and treasure only the believers can discover
Only cos love hurts... true love pains

Anyhow, let me tell of this smile on my face 
The fuel that powers the excitement in my energy
It is one feeling I forbid myself to fear or shut out
In fact I dare my heart to take that leap of faith
For with love comes joy and peace... God’s best creation

I fear not the disappointment love carries cos I’m a believer
I overlook the sadness that lies ‘neath its wings cos I have faith
I don’t mind opening the doors in the sacred space of my heart over and over
For love to reside one more time for God is love and God is in me
I’m ready to let the rivers of love wash over my fears

Love wrote its name across my heart... Next to it I engraved his name
With the brightest colours of the rainbow across the grey skies at dusk
For he is my angel and shall forever remain my very own guardian angel... 
I can proudly say I love loving him unconditionally... THANK YOU

The Heart's Anxiety

Shall I compare thee to a Fall Afternoon,
Nature's final chance, before eventual doom,
Opportunity for some and failure for a few,
Love is in the air, however, what will you do?

She has an intellect worth noting and long hair always glowing,
However, without effort, there is no knowing,
No clues ever seem to be showing,
Being vague is a curse, and a curse worth knowing.

My mind is in a haze as I think about asking her,
She could make life worth living, or just slam the door,
She could have a heart of ice to make me go "BUR"
But honest, what use is the waiting for?

Here is my chance as the night comes clear,
Time is important and the last leaf is near,
Risk is needed for all that is dear,
It is better to fail, than to miss something so near.

On Being Romantic

On Being Romantic

Hi, When you see this note, know that I am thinking of you.
Know that your heartbeat is in unison with mine.
My pulse is otherwise irregular but when with you,
it beats one beat in syncronicity with your regular one.
I feel like an adolescent again.
Falling in love for the first time.
Writing my first love letter
to a woman I thought would be my love forever.
Living in this world created for the insane.
That's where I belong.
Love knows no sanity.
One thing I know for sure is that;
there is something inside me 
that wants you and I to grow old and up together. 
There is something inside me 
that knows that you create in me 
the climate good enough for my growth 
and the growth of our little children.
It does not frighten to tell. 
It frightens to think. 
To think that when the sun sets,
we shall be apart. 
It pains to think that even when I have bled my heart 
to show my total surrender to your soul, I will be sleeping alone. 
You, like the morning star, shine in my life when it seems darkest. 
The days with you are a warm breeze on a winter's day. 
I will knock at your heart's door until you let me in.
It's cold out here.
I know I am male
Becoming a man
You make me chose 
Being a gentleman.

Through the Years

I know I had to let you go
To be with God above
But one thing I will always have, forever 
Is your love
It’s been there through our ups and downs
Through smiles and laughter too
Through good and bad, through tears and fears
Our love remained so true
Through the years when things were tough
Or anything went wrong
Together we would work it out
Together we stood strong
Through the years you cared for me
You loved me every day
Through the years when I got lost
You helped me find my way 
Through the years when I was sad
You held me while I cried
Through the years, you’ve been my love
My strength, my rock, my guide
Sometimes when I'm all alone
I close my eyes and pray
That God will give you back to me
Just for one more day
So I could tell you one more time
How much I love you so
So I could hold you just once more
Before I let you go
I miss you every morning
Every night and every day
I’d give all my tomorrows
For just one more yesterday
I always knew how blessed I was
To have you in my life
Always I will wear your ring
I’ll always be your wife
I know I must be strong now 
For this mountain I must climb
To face a world without the man
Who always will be mine
I know you’re always here with us 
Our children feel it too
And no one else will ever have 
The love we gave to you
I know you're up in Heaven 
And to God, you now belong
But part of you stays here..
For in your sons…you still live on..

A song about my cat

My cat went a roaming to find a new home.
Sing kitty,sing katty,sing Oh!
This cat was so clever he had his own comb.
Look up,now look down,stone the crows!

He went into the neighbours' and drank all their milk.
Sing,fridge raiding kitties.No,No!
Then he laid himself down on a piece of fine silk.
Sing,what the dickens,my lovely pillow!

He went to the butcher and ate all the steak.
Sing greedy,he's ruined my flow.
Then he went to the hairdresser for a shampoo.
Where else can a puttitat go?

He had no plastic,no money,no cheque!
Sing,cheater,sing creature,sing woe.
She sent for a Copper who paid the cat's bill.
And so  my puss came out all aglow.

Now my cat was glossy and plump and refreshed.
Sing:fancy,it all goes to show.
So he came home and said this place is best.
And he picked up his cello and bow.

He scraped some Sibelius and also some Grieg.
Sing: Northern lights can always glow.
But,he looked so self satisfied,I felt annoyed....
One should not let one's narcissism show.

But he was so handsome,I was glad he came home.
Sing,grateful,sing katefull,sing Ho!
And I hope he will never again want to roam.
Sing glory.sing story;Sing So!

LOCK IN A GAZE

From a far, I was dazzled by your smile..
From a far, I was amused by that sweet laugh..
From a far, I was attracted to come over near..
From a far, You became the apple of eye..

Walking past a crowd of persons..
Eyes locked as I traverse to the path..
Beholding the gaze, unliking to break..
Excitement builds up, heartbeat thudding aloud...

Finally, We are face to face, unoicing the crowd..
Holding a quiet moment, staring underneath a smile..
I extend an arm, mindlessly falling to you..
Clamouring for your hand, squeezing polite...

Haywire, it might have been..
I do not care tor I haven't sin..
All attention focused fat not thin..
Mesmerized enjoying the romantic scene..

Deirdre

 
Don’t you know Deirdre’s gone? Don’t you know Deirdre’s gone? I can sence her embrace that feels like Tragedy A heart to have, slipped beneath the waves The dark pulse now beckons us closer How many days will this passion bleed away? We will be the ones left to blame Beware we’ve become their prey They say you’re addicted to your pain A lifeless cold barren soul left to die in the rain A whisper too close to the edge A call from the dark Brings out a saving spark An Exodus from her Pain Her Life Spent breathing in Shame A Shadow Call breaks the Silence Am I the one to blame? Don't you know Deirdre's gone? Don't you know Deirdre never said wrong? Don't you know Deirdre's gone? “My Decadence was just for you Though you’d never care what I’ve been through Enter the world were empathy is clandestine A world created by you, just for me What’s Lying in my heart is why You want to through the stone” I call your name towards nightfall’s reign But they take you so far away A dark angel so divine Cursed by Eden’s heart I will avenge every tear An Exodus from her Pain Her Life Spent breathing in Shame A Shadow Call breaks the Silence Am I the one to blame? Don't you know Deirdre's gone? Don't you know Deirdre never said wrong? Don't you know Deirdre's gone? Don’t you know Deirdre’s gone? Don’t you know Deirdre’s gone?

Irrevocably Infected

I was on a journey
The destination wasn't clear
I needed to experiment 
And challenge every fear

I was slightly unsure
But not at all lost
He lured me in with his mind
And the price of my heart it cost

I wanted to have just a taste
But then we really connected
Aside from everything I ever knew 
I was irrevocably infected

I tried to make sense of it all
Then easily dismissed the thought
I hadn't realized I was hooked
And too distracted to know I was caught

I mean, I was on a serious high
The one you always chase after
And the feeling was just so good
Like those deep bursts of sudden laughter 

It's not easy to admit
But the addiction became clear
Every time he was far away
I needed him close, needed him near

I urgently needed to detox
It was time to break away
I managed to stay clean 
For 3 weeks and 5 days

Put up all my guards
Avoided all the traps
And when I saw his name
Across my screen...



I easily relapsed

Time to start looking forward 

Leave the past behind

But when you left

You took my heart 

Don’t want to love you anymore 

Don’t want to see my heaven in your eyes

Don’t want to miss you

Don’t want to cry

Don’t want to keep asking why 

You changed my world

When you said goodbye

When will I ever feel 

Ready for love again? 

To be held again 

By anyone but you?

If you ever find 

That I cross your mind

If you ever find 

You want a love that is true

I’ll be here

Loving you still

Waiting for you

And at the end of the day

Lord I pray

You might find love for me

So I tell myself to hold on

Till these feelings are gone

Happy Valentines Day

Roses are red
Violets are blue
Happy Valentines day to all of you
Enjoy all those chocolates,
and share a moment with your loved ones,
Be happy, share that laughter
Share those chocolates, when time comes around
Say I love you to friends,
and family
But most importantly that mate that adores you
Happy Valentines Day once more
Enjoy it this year we have plenty more. <3

After You

With everything I could ever do,
How could I love anyone after you?

We talked
we laughed
We scoffed 
and on behalf of everyone 

Everyone that hated our pairing
All the rumors they were sharing
Every night together so daring

Every night together seemed so caring

Respect and trust make the pairing
Respect and trust come from sharing
Respect and trust require vulnerability
Which makes the process quite so daring

Amazing comversations that we spoke
Amazing conversations you thought jokes
The respect I gave you despite your faults
The respect you gave as jokes with insults

I took it all
I took the fall
I took the leap
a fall so deep

All you did was laugh
All you did was half
I tried so hard to be the best
but you could never be the rest

So...

With everything I could ever do,
How could I love anyone after you?

Anwnn

Coming from the misty lake Lough Leane
Came a beautiful maiden of the name of Niamh
Upon a mare, for she is not from the world of man
A seraphic princess from Anwnn
Upon the shores she claimed around his kin
"I have came for Oisin son of Finn"
"Maiden you come to me so alluringly 
I am he, if we marry for all eternity!"

And so he rode upon her horse to the secrets of Anwnn
For he and she, they'd be happy for all eternity 

Come with me to Anwnn
I am she, your queen Niamh
I have come for you Oisin, son of Finn
Don't leave me or you'll see 
The age of man
The age of man
The age of man

Dreaming About You

I am picturing us floating on a cloud
gazing into each other eyes.
Gently pulling you close to my heart
hoping we do not depart.
I wrap you in my arms imagining us taking 
a journey into time together breathing passionate 
words of love into your ears.
My fingers tips stroking throughout your hair 
with such divine affection and care. 
My body starts to create heat of passion building
 within.
 Feeling the smoothness of your skin-
my mind is fantasizing about our bodies interlocking 
as you softly say to me “come and be lost within me”.


Although my thoughts are just a hallucination
I believe one day we will have this romantic relation.
But the infatuation seems so true
I feel myself being a part of you.
It is you inside my mind
a fantasy with such a wonderful design.

Your Hand Here

( This poem was written in the palm of an outline of my hand)


If ever you feel alone,
   let my memory be your guide.
Put your hand in my print,
   close your eyes,
   and Ill be back at your side.
Allow my thoughts to hold you close,
   and fill your need for warmth.
For youll never have to miss me,
   if my memory is forever in your heart.

Before we knew the one we know

Before we knew the one we know….   By: Steve Hudson

Once we were attracted to each other
Before we even knew each other,
Passion flowed through our bodies
Ready to ignite at the faintest glow,

Now we know each other
Time and circumstance has lulled our affections
Passion is reduced to a re-action that is never an action
The gravity of our reality takes form on aged bodies

The glow that once lightened up the fires in our room
Now frightens the idea of romance between the frigid bride and groom
Wouldn’t lovemaking be breathtaking if only we could see?
The one we knew, before we know, making that our reality.

What Jane Sees

Silver spoons, white silk, and china,
Her world of luxury defines her.
So ignorant, and so naive,
Too comfortable, and so she leaves

And comes to rest, though tempest tossed,
Too far away to call her lost.
A wilderness, to her surprise,
Is softened by a strangers eyes.

And so, it starts, a foreign friend
Extends a hand, and starts to mend
Our fragile Jane, whose inner war
Had left her fractured, weaker, raw.

And when he speaks, his voice is deep,
And when she hears, she's willed to sleep.
He's found a peace no-one can reach,
She's much to learn, and he can teach.

He takes her hand, he makes her calm,
They're silenced and they're palm to palm.
A pair of eyes, once so self-sure
Are opened wide and thirst for more.

Jane's changing now, he's made her see
How elegant a life can be,
When fakery is stripped away
And harmony comes into play.

He's nothing like she's ever known,
He's nurtured her, and now she's grown.
He's trusted her, he's changed her world,
He's shown the light to a blinded girl.

And yet, he questions what she sees,
In the one who's put her mind at ease.
In the only way that she knows how,
She spells it out, in rhymes for now.

She sees him as her saving grace,
She sees perfection in his face.
She knows that he's her pride and joy,
She knows that he's her jungle boy.

Of Her Presence, Herpes

Her presence Herpes, with arms dainty, 
and tedious to seize, yet her beauty like parsley, 
inundated with attributes ceremonious, that which brims, 
and must be entitled to flow ceaselessly, into hearts draped, 
by cotton wools, soaked in crimson wine.

WHALING SHIP CAPTAIN's LOVER part 2

WHALING SHIP CAPTAIN’S LOVER
(Part 2 of 3)

Now Jorgie was a fierce one
Widowed   ‘fore she wed
The object of her passion
A Sea man lost and dead

Jorgie had a small lad
Swaddled piece of sun
And her lovers parents
Coveted this tiny life begun

They didn’t care that he was born
Before the two were wed
They claimed that he was theirs now
A whaling lad- True bred.

The parents of the lover
    had an only child
On his death they lost their hope
Twas like a dream defiled.

Jorgie begged her father
"Keep us out of sight!"
But her father made a traitors deal--
Oft Gold dissolves what’s right.
 
She quickly packed her bag
And off the two did fly
She sold gold jewelry and fine clothes
And kissed her land good bye

Upon a third class ship
She bought a third class bed
The sickness hit her in a storm
She puked until she bled…

Spring Winds they blew black fierce, 
the poor men all were cursed
The scurvy struck them all
There was no last or first

The ship was tossed --the wind blew bad
A wretched ugly sight
Despite the stink ,despite her fear
She battled with her fright.

Didn’t know the language
Didn’t know the style
But Jorgie was determined
To prosper with her child

When she reached the New World
She found cross country trains
And as she crossed the mighty land
She wracked her weary brain.

To organize a new life
And work the whole day long
She came up with a daring plan
She hoped she wasn’t wrong.

She jumped the train at Minot
She had a cousin there
She’d pay his wife to watch the babe
‘til she could raise him fair.

The cousin’s wife had lost her babes
She welcomed the small joy
Jorgie smiled and kissed him tho
Her heart ached for the boy.

She ventured West to logging camps
Set up her fire and pans
Cooked for Nordic loggers
The boldest of bold men.

 ========to be continued (too long for the site...sorry...)
 

Note:  Jorgie : (pronounced Yor’ gee) was a nickname
Her name:  Sena Jorgine Larsen

To A Missing Love

I miss the days,
We shared together,
And the love we shared,
When it was there,
Believe it or not,
My love for you,
Will always remain,
In my heart,
No matter where you may go,
For we have been,
Through a whole lot together,
That shows my love for you,
Is as true as it becomes,
For one day you will see,
That no one will stand beside you,
The way that I have,
During these troubled times,
And never leave your side,
To be there through thick and thin,
The way I was for you,
Being very true during each forsaken time,
Even though you were pushing me away,
By doing what you did,
Which caused us many problems,
I felt as if everyone else mattered,
More to you,
Than me.

The Turn of The Screw

There was a time I swear it’s true
When all the roads that led to you
Were leafy lanes and sunlit avenues

And every bird in every tree
Announced this joy triumphantly
The world had a perfect symmetry

It ends just like it begins
I feel the ground under me spin
Until I’m on the outside looking in

As the penny drops into a slot
It turns a key that fits a lock
And opens up a door right under me

And suddenly

I’m falling

And as all colours lose their hue
As all lines fall out of true
The only sound I can hear
Is the slow, slow turn of the screw
Is the slow, slow turn of the screw

I would like to rest before I die

I'd like to rest before I die
before my final trip
In the warm ocean waves, my feet I'd like to dip
walking on sandy beaches, hand in hand with my soul mate
I'd like a final holiday, before I reach the Heaven's gates.
I'd like to see New York
a lifelong dream it's been
or have a chance to stay, at a fine old British Inn
I'd like to touch the shores of Ireland
Then land of heart and kin
Then when I went home
I'd say what a trip it's been.
I'd like to go to France, rent a studio and drink wine
spend a week or two at the cafe's , now wouldn't that be fine
see all the galleries and take in all the sights
walking benath the Eiffel Tower with my love at night.
I'd like to see the Vatican, the galleries and museums
I'd like to go to Venice and see all the great scenes
I'd like to go to China and shop in the side streets
And spend some time just watching , all the people I would meet
I'd like to ride the railway and travel coast to coast
I'd like to see Canada, the country I love most
We'd dine on the fine China , while the country would fly by
and in the travel car, you can see the open sky

if I should never get to do this
don't be sad for me at all
who knows for sure the hour ro day
That God will come to call
for I've seen so much and had my time, upon this planet earth
I've been loved and have loved , before I rest beneath the dirt
I'ts more than some have had, I've been blessed I always say
And though I hope to always dream
I've had quite a fine stay.

Kimberly's Poem Part 2

I'm smitten with this girl, and I can't put it into words...

How much her smile brightens the room....

How, no matter how bad I feel, just one look from her raises me up....

How, no matter what I'm doing, or, what I'm thinking about, when I see her, all I want to
do is kiss her

I can't find the words to tell her these things...

Kimberly, I only wish you knew, that your smile brightens the room.....

That, when I'm sad, just seeing you makes me feel better....

That, no matter what I'm doing, when I see you, I lose my train of thought, and, can only
think about kissing you....

Kimberly, I'm smitten with you, and, I'm sorry I can't find the words to tell you...

The Costumed Dream

     Seems like I'm falling 
in love 
     with Bat-Girl
   Don't ask me how this happened 
       Women in costumes 
appeal to me 
     Not long ago I hugged a woman 
in a cat costume
    Comic book dreams 
coming through once more 
  Green Lantern, Magneto and 
       the reat 
are competing with me 
for the love of 
  a costumed woman 
I think that "love steeers the star" 
  Fantasy women are sometimes 
easier to deal with than real ones

Cherish

Cherish 

Two hearts one soul
A love meant to be 

Cherish the love
God has chosen
For thee

In all things be true
To the one
Who loves you

Forget not
Life is about compromise 
This is a word to the wise

For each day is fleeting 
Moments you never get back

But if you cherish each moment
There is nothing you will lack

I Keep On Waiting

You know that I love you.
I've been waiting for days.
Just for you to pass by my house.
Yes! You know that I need you.
So I stand in the road.
So you stop and stay with me.
I keep on waiting.
For your love to drive by.
Yes! I know it will, I do..
So I keep on waiting.
For your love to drive by.
Yes! I know it will, I do..

You know that I cherish.
Your love everytime.
It goes by my front door.
And I know that I love you.
Until the end of time.
I will carry on with you.
So I keep on waiting.
For your love to drive by.
Yes! I know it will, I do..

I've spent a lifetime.
Just dreaming of things.
That you might do with me.
Because you know that I love you.
I've been waiting for days.
Just for you to pass by my house.
I know that I need you.
So I stand in the road.
So you stop and stay with me.

I keep on waiting.
For your love to drive by.
Yes! I know it will, I do..

So I keep on waiting.
For your love to drive by.
Yes! I know it will, I do..

I just keep on waiting.
For your love to drive by.
Yes! I know it will, I do..

Our Love

I love you 
and that will
never change.

Even though 
we'll age, not
our love.

From the moment
that I've held you 
in my arms...

I've treasured you,
I've loved you.

What we share
could never die,
I will love you all
my life.

The tenderness of
your kiss, blooms 
like a sunflower in
the sun.

You're my only love.

I wanna grow old
with you, spend
an eternity making 
love to you.

Be your quiet storm,
the one that'll keep 
you warm.

I wanna breathe you,
be your night and day.

Our love will remain,
even in the afterlife...

A continued romance 
that'll last throughout 
time.

Mousey

I love my Mousey,
She lives in a field in BrushCreek, Tennessee,
Walking with her her of cattle,
As happy as she will ever be.

Without this there would be only she,
And i could make her as happy as me,

I miss her immensly, for thee i wish well,
For everyday i wish she wont sell, 
And I could show her in the Dekalb County Fair,
I would sell never an ounce of her.
Hehe not even one of her little white hairs.

Even when all the way over there,
Mine she is for no one but me to share, if I do so happen to dare.

Cute as a button,
A button her nose may well be,
Where I first touched her sweet little body,
Not once but twice sweetly,
For wherever she goes I could spot her, along with her sister and mother.

Many a mile away, for she is not at all,
Not at all what you would say a little grayish thing.

But a heifer who grows daily,
Only to shove the motherly tears away.
In my eyes though, she will always be, forever and always, my baby girl, my sweetie,
my beautiful girl, my Mousey

What Your Love Did

Your love made me weak.
Losing you made me weaker.
Leaving me in the wake of your shadow.
i let the absence kill me inside.
waiting for a hero that would never come.
Waiting...letting myself turn cold and numb.

Your love made me strong.
Losing you made me stronger.
The desolation hurt me to my core.
And i felt like my broken heart wouldnt beat anymore.
but while my heart was bleeding.
My heart kept beating 
and i can carry on alone.

I will


     When those I love, become endowed with only themselves, at the expense of my pain.  I will survive and still love them.

       When they embrace that woman or man who has no regard for the safety of the
precious children, I will turn to lGod for my instructions and guard my hear from thinking or feeling bitterness from their blindness, that has them decieved because of their lust of the flesh.  Nevertheless, I will continue to love them, because "King Solomon" wrote: Love is stronger then death."

Though the mother that I adore and love is walking in the darkness and death tries to 
snare her, then I know my love for her is so strong that death will be still and my love will
become her pathway of escape.  Yes, only through love shall she see and not be without help.  For a daughters love for her mother, is far greater then any darkness can perceive.  Its that love that will give her mother the victory.  I will, because I love stronger then death.

My Angel

All my tomorrows will come and go
And pass just like a storm
But all this pain I feel inside my heart 
Still lingers on
I would have loved you always
Held you for a million years
Instead my arms are empty
And my world is full of tears
Since you’ve gone I’m just a shadow
Of someone I used to be
There’s nothing I wouldn’t do in this world
To bring you back to me
Sometimes I wake up crying at night
Sometimes I scream out your name
What right did He have to take you from me
God, why did you take him away
I'm on a road to nowhere
And I just can't find my way
I feel so lost without you
Scared to face each waking day
Nights I lay awake just staring
Through my bloodshot eyes
Surrounded by these walls that tell
The stories of our lives
The sound of your sweet loving voice
The feel of you so close
The love I felt inside your heart
Is what I miss the most
I know someday I'll see you again
At the gates of Heaven above
And there I will find you waiting for me
My Angel, my heart, my love.

PIECE BY PIECE IT FITS

The sound of your voice stuns me..
The gaze we hold when our eyes lock, melts me..
The way we talk long hours everyday, comforts me..
The gentleness of your treatment, keeps me..

Oh! I flutter with your cleverness..
I blush at your complements..
I hide at your naughtyness..
I follow at your truthfulness..

The boken pieces beginning to fit..
Hope they will not anymore split..
Rather, each piece is a good hit..
Worth finishing in a whole lifetime sit...

Come With Me

Come with me

Set sail with me

Let’s set our hearts free

Come lie with me

In waves above the frail

Give me your heart

Wounded hearts have no place 

In the world we see ahead

Come lie with me

And let me love you instead

I'll Never Get Over You

If only I had seen it coming 
But I never knew
The day before you left me
I had one more day with you
If only I could turn back time
And bring back yesterday
If only I could tell you
All the things I need to say
If only I could hold you close
And kiss you just once more
If only I could see you smile 
As you walk through that door
Walking down this lonely road
Lost, alone and sad
Holding onto memories and dreams 
That we once had
I need you here to guide me 
For I know I’ll lose my way
Without you I’ll crumble 
Without you I’m not ok
I still don’t understand the reason 
Why you had to leave
I don’t know how to deal with this
I don’t know how to grieve
Looking in the mirror
I still see you in my eyes
And always I will love you
Because true love never dies
Everything I feel inside
Gets stronger everyday
The love that’s in my heart for you
Will never fade away
Everything we shared
And all the memories made together
Will live within my heart and soul
They'll stay with me forever
As long as there is night and day
As long as skies are blue
As long as stars still shine so bright 
I’ll never get over you...

Better Luck Next Time

My heart...can you find it?
I can't feel it in my chest
Ever since the emotional hit
Leaving me months of unrest

You'll be fine, better luck next time

Every woman looks like the same
Decent hair, poor skin and a sight of breast
Nothing but another bland dame
Why can't I simply just rest?

You'll be fine, better luck next time

Lying alone in bed waiting
my supportive roommates in love surround me
I can't bear the noise as I'm debating
What is next in life for me?

You'll be fine, better luck next time

Country Love

Come and sit on the porch with me
We'll just sit here silently
The smell of the country,fireflys at night
Thank you God for this beautiful site.

Country music on the radio
Sitting here silently, just watching grass grow
Hold my hand and sit awhile
It makes me blush when I see you smile.

You know my thoughts before I speak
Lifes so perfect when your here with me
You grab your guitar,sing a country song
Of birds and bees and loves gone wrong.

A car drives down this country road
They wave at us, just saying hello.

The moon comes out with a million stars
I turn around and there you are.
You give me your hand, and pull me close
As we dance in this country road.
Its silent here, only you and I.
Dancing under this beautiful sky.
I'll never forget the day we met
Please don't ever let me forget..

Your Television Set Don't Love You, Darlin'

You’re wasting your weekends on electronic lovers,
They float by like ghosts on the screen,
You’re kissing Clark Gable and you waltz Fred Astaire
In re-runs you’ve already seen.

You’re changing the stations—you change your emotions—
From channel to channel in vain. 
The six o’clock news man is laughing at you,
And the talk show believes you’re insane.

Your television set don’t love you, darlin’
So how come you watch it from bed?
Your television set don’t love you, darlin’,
So why don’t you love me instead?

Down at the tavern my Budweiser loves me,
There’s a TV set over the bar,
And the girl on the screen, she reminds me of you,
So I get up and go to my car.

I drive through the night and the windshield wipers
Remove all the rain from the glass—
It’s like a wide screen, and our show’s off the air…
Our soap opera just didn’t last…

one day

You never loved me that much is true,

Now Im questioning did I ever know you,

You promised me the world then took it away,

Leaving me fight through every single day.

 You left me with a stranger here

You took away the matthew I held so dear.

What Im left with I dont recognise

You suddenly changed right befpre my eyes.

you dont understand what you have done
 
How affected I am by you being gone.

Ive never been in love like this before

But then you went and slammed the door

I am lost, lonely and in fear

Its how I feel when you arent near.
 
You told me stop trying so I did for you

But its not what I wanted, that much you knew

You think it doesnt hurt me to see you flirt

To see you treat me nothing more than dirt.

 I was the girl who was your world

Now Im less than every other girl

Im nothing, irrelevant, its how I feel

You cant blame me, its how you've made it seem.

I guess you helped me live a lie
 
Now I know all I can do is cry.

S here I stand rooted to the spot

Where 9 months ago you threw in the lot

I lost my Matthew that day

And I cant get him back not any way

 I wish you could look me in the eye

So you can see what you have done, how youve made me cry

You wont even listen, wont even try

You just kept on walking when you said goodbye.

You will wish you hadnt walked away
 
You will feel gutted when you think of that day

One day you will see how good you were with me

One day  I promise you, you'll see

What I Like In A Man

What I Like In A Man


I like my eggs over easy and my steak a little rare,
Tight Wrangler jeans and my kinky blonde hair,
I like holdin' hands and 'pitchin' woo'.

I like barrel racin' horses, My pick-up truck,
And all night lovin' ain't never too much!
But when it comes to what I like in a man...I like you!

I like the way you look at me
        I like the way you let me be me
                I like the way you hold me tight
                        And say you love me all through the night!

I like talkin' to my mama on the telephone,
She always knows when somethin's wrong,
And she never tries to tell me what to do.

I like the wind when it blows, walkin' naked in the rain,
Hearin' George Strait on the radio drives me insaine
But when it comes to what I like in a man...I like you!

Nothing Gold Can Stay

Nothing gold can stay.
Sometimes u find it slips away,
Something close that u can touch,
But in the end it was to much,
Like a flood flowing through a city,
Life is hard when u live in pity,
Things may be good but turn bad,
Sometimes it makes u really sad,
Days and nights may go,
Just have to live life nice and slow,
Maybe somethings may not be right,
Its never good to pick a fight,
Sometimes u find it slips away,

HEARTSTONE AWAKEING PART 1

to heartstone , we travelled
with our child
we crossed the bridge of the morning star
left our home at the place of the rising moon
a new child to be blessed
in the great hall
to be seen
by kings and queens
by all

 
to the forests of redwood
to the east of the mountains
we came to the stream of sighs
the beauty of trees
eagles in magical skies
through the meadows
fields of flowers
blue butterflies around
shining blue
they knew she was here
faeries flew
 

my moondust carried our girl
to the door
colours flying
all of heartstone love, to unfurl
that a child could  carry
everything that mattered in this world
the doors opened wide
the princesses of heartstone
took us inside
stars flew
magic coursed through
flower petals fell
such joy
what we brought in to this world
under a tiny girls’ spell

 
the summer queen bent down
kissed the tiny girl
a summer birth at dawn
she held her
tears in her eyes
spoke gently
“with this child heartstone is reborn”

pure and bright
as a heartstone starry winter night
the girls’ smile shone
as she lay in the summer queens’ arms
we all looked on in delight
my moondust was serene
the heartstone in the great hall
began to glow
wondrous light emanating
unusually beautiful
for this was the realizing
of a special queen

never a child so young
had been made
to become a queen
that she would rule
all of the forest of richest green
her time had begun……
the heartstone was brought to the tiny girl
she smiled with delight
with the knowing look of the wise
she touched the stone
stars burst forth
in bright amethyst light

Nottingham Goose Fair Girl

I journey from Sheffield town
to old  Nottingham's olde goose fair 
where the lights shone brightly
and there was music and laughter in the air.

My eyed were drawn to a pretty girl
with a twinkling eyes and long flaxen hair
among the crowd standing there.

oh pretty Nottingham  girl
as sweet as the blossom in spring
and as joyful as the nightingale that sings
As soon as I saw thee my hear ascended above
intoxicated by they beauty and charm
I fell in love.

We danced and flirted by the the minstral's music their
I stared into her twinkling eyes and stroked lovingly
her long flaxen hair.

We laughed and sang upon the fair rides
I could see the love shine from her twinkling eyes
I was so captivated by her son like smile
I wanted the moment to last forever instead if a while.

My soul had surrendered my heart was a flame
I fell deeply in love but didn't even know her name
I turned around for a moment
and she was no where to be seen
I screamed out and then awoke from a dream.

I turned around  and was so happy to see
the pretty young girl with twinkling eyes and flaxen hair now my wife
sleeping next to me.


Nottingham's goose fair is still held every year. I hate fairs, but like girls.

HAND THEN LOVE

Keep close and take my hand 
Together we breath and take our step 
Million miles of love from this sand 
Lets take our journey of love in ship 

The only one that eyes can see 
You promised to never leave me 
In hopeless times my love you 'll find 
Love and heart can never be blind 


Let the heaven be our guide 
For this love can 't be hide 
Take my hand and you 'll never fall 
I 'll catch you through it all .


There 's no mountain is too high 
There 's no ocean is too wide 
Just take my hand tonight 
For us I 'll continue to fight .

What we have is worth fighting for 
Take my hand and hold it tight 
And this love will be alright.


Let it rain, let it pour 
Take my hand for this love tour 
We 'll take the step together 
This love keeps on getting better.

DRIPPING CANDLE GLOWING IN THE FROSTY SNOW

Everything around me is so dark,
only the frigid sky shows its hues...
as the cold robin flutters on the sill of my bright window,
to pick up the last breadcrumbs left  by the ragged widow;
and she, with a cart full of gifts, is looking for kids 
to give them to...as she seemed unable
to move around in her worn-out shoes,
and I surprisingly catch some sadness in her smile!   


Dripping candle glowing in the frosty snow,
chase away every approaching shadow
from her tweedy, wind-blown coat,
to spread light on her gliding path:
where snow-drifts may reduce her sight!
Dripping candle glowing in the frosty snow,   
let her kindness be remembered on this Christmas' Eve...
as we all share in that spirit of giving it all!  
  

And I will remember her, too, in my joyous glee; 
as she goes past the lamp-posts of each silent street,
humming her tuneful carol with a soul so spirited...
echoing the enthusiasm of a dashing child!


Dripping candle glowing in the frosty snow,
ask her if you can be her friend...guiding her on her journey; 
dripping candle, brilliant with hope and light ,
make her joyfully smile down the snowy road of this Christmas' night
by letting all the bells of the gloomy town ring like they rang before...
when she went door to door to spread the season's good tidings, 
and are those vivid memories reflected in her nostalgic and kind eyes?
Dripping candle glowing in the frosty snow,
don't die out...until her weeping face beholds Christ's glory,
and she can forever rest in His comforting arms!

A Broken Fairytale

Once upon a time, 
Almost 6 years ago,
A boy met a girl
With his best friend in toe.
This boy and this girl
Became young love in its essence.
His best friend became what some would call
Her own personal hidden blessing.
His devotion for his friend
Couldn't quite bring him to confess,
But he cared about that girl enough,
To warn her of future distress.

After 3 long years,
Of the back and forth romance,
Their young love finally ended,
The girl was broken hearted and defenceless.
She had given her all
To someone who was only willing to take it.
The best friend tried to warn her,
But she couldn't see her lover fake it.

A year would pass,
Before the best friend would find,
His best friend's ex,
The one he longed to say was "mine".
A birthday of hers
Was his golden opportunity.
When he missed her night out,
He offered to take her to a movie.
She wrestled with the thought:
Do I open that door?
She kept pushing it off,
Until she couldn't avoid it anymore.
Neither one of them expected,
Or even could dream
Of all that would come
From one night, one movie.

A love affair of sorts,
Filled with constant ups and downs,
But despite their best efforts,
They couldn't help but stick around.
A year and 2 months
Of the greatest love that ever lived,
Was shared between these two,
Who were only just kids.
Neither one of them was ready,
They didn't know what to do,
They loved so deeply,
But this experience was so new.
A girl with a broken heart,
With no sense of true self worth,
Met a boy with a broken heart,
And the desire to move forth,
With her by his side,
Forever hand in hand,
Yet she felt she didn't deserve him,
And did what she could: she ran.

Now her love for him consumes her,
But his heart is in pieces.
Now he's too afraid of her
But his love he swears never ceases.
And she cries herself to sleep at night,
For the best friend she hurt foolishly.
And she prays for their future together,
The one he says can never be.

Two Lonely Hearts

We've been apart, for a very long time.
Time is still on my mind.
I must find my way back to you.

It's been awhile, since you stared in my eyes.
True love never dies.
As the stars begin to shine.

'Cause two lonely hearts.
Come together as one.
In the middle of town.
In the middle of the town.

Two lonely hearts.
Come together as one.
In the middle of town.
In the middle of the town.

You stayed away, for a very long time.
Your thought still on my mind.
I must find my way back to you.

I always thought, you would stand next to me.
You would never leave.
You would never leave my side.

'Cause two lonely hearts.
Come together as one.
In the middle of town.
In the middle of the town.

'Cause two lonely hearts.
Come together as one.
In the middle of town.
In the middle of the town..

AWAKE THEM, LOVE

I have fallen crazy madly deeply in love..
How many times I tried but failed..
How many times I take risks yet I was wronged..
So, I did cry and feel so hurt...

Whispered by my mind: "stop & take care"
this Stubborn heart rejects and says: "find your pair"..
I must stand follow a strong will..
Not round up nor down like a wheel..

Undefinable; unexplainable love..
how you been?
Where have you been?
share to me not be trashed in bin..

a lot needs and wants you..
yet few shows a genuine you..
soothers and enlighteners of blues..
shoving all worries and woes..

nowadays, in world full of gloom
won't you mind to flourish and bloom?
spring out to everyone's aura and mood..
pleading you to cure all wounds..

Neptune, Mystic lady

In mythology Neptune is male. But in astrology she represents unconditional love. 
which to me is a feminine thing. 


Neptune, Mystic Lady.

Neptune, sweetest mystic maid
They call you yang! Yet can’t they see?
That you, you be the mystic Mother,
You symbol purest mystery.
Ruling Pisces with your beauty,
Two fishes swim, the one each way
You point each soul unto each journey
“The Tao! Yes you be the way.

“Poets, musicians gather round me”
That’s what Neptune seems to say.
Her way be easier via Pisces,
Yet you may get there any way.
But don’t you fight her, or confusion
Might drive you to insanity.
Or drugs, or booze may beckon to you,
Young Neptune well she must be free.

Neptune says “Come on, disolve now,
Find out, you be the ocean too,
Each wave it be its own creation,
Of something that be ever new”
Oh Neptune “love with no conditions”
You be each souls own destiny,
You be the all, filled bold with beauty,
Oh, Neptune, maid of mystery.

The Cyber Nymph

The Cyber Nymph
Loch David Crane
August 18, 1997

Lie back--expose your belly ring		
up unto the sky. . .
I just hope when I get down close
it won't put out my eye!

That summer I was 48 
and she pert 25;
I left Prozac in the cupboard 
and Reality went Live.

I shoulda taken time to stop
and used the vorpal rubber
But 48 he couldn't wait 
to find another lover.

So while the Sun was merciless
to sand and skin and sea
"If she swells I'm sure she'll tell,
returning then to me."

I must admit I got her drunk--
I used her just for sex:
Blue and blond with freckles,
suntanned buns and pecs.

But she revealed computer skills
That took away my breath.
Her dancing cyber fingers sang;
I soon saw who was best.

Ol' 48 could bare compute
"Not very fast" she said;
"I've practiced years not to be fast"
gasped I, collapsed in bed.

Then the Sun warmed up the honey--
it dripped twice more in a row.
Ulysses' "rosy-fingered dawn"
beheld her frown, dress, and go.

That freshly-flossed feeling
reverberates my spine
A smile wells up from deep inside
and stays there all the time.

At play I watched this cyber nymph
on Netscape and E-mail;
Her eyes flashed, fingers flying,
shaking golden ponytail.

"You're kinda slow," she grumbled,
terrifying 48;
"But I like that in a man," she grinned,
making me feel great.

My old 12 color monitor
was not enough for her;
More movies, GIFs, and videos
flew by me in a blur.

But 48 he had a trick:
while she stared at the screen
I spoke in her ear, nibbled her neck,
and adored her like a Queen.

I kissed and bit and licked and squirmed
'til wrists and spine went quiet--
The way a mouse's legs go still
when python's on his diet.

And then the honey dripped once more,
the Sun was past its rise.
I felt its rosy hug and knew
that love was in my eyes.

I asked her for her address,	
she wrote with @ in code;
I said "I'm too old fashioned"
and asked for her telephone.

So when you dream, sweet 25,
tall cyber nymph of mine,
remember please old 48
who isn't past his prime.

And as the honey of the Sun
drips down into the sea
I'll recall my Cyber Nymph
and she will undelete me.

THE STAIN OF THE NIGHT

They came at night

Just before dawn

Moondust awoke

I heard the wraiths’ shrieking cries

Faeries’ magic to invoke

Longbow drawn

 

I kissed my Moondust

Then back to back

We waited for the onslaught

A Faerie Queen ready

My longbow ready 

The battle to be fought

                        

Soft amethyst light

Surrounded us

The love within

Will conquer the stain of the night

 

So it was, that evil

Tried to take

What was never theirs

That love can never break

Of spells that spill

 

The flashing fire

Amethyst light

Together we stood

And banished the night

 

Time and time again

They came

They could never win

Fighting as one

Loving as one

Of Faerie magic

Arrows brown and gold

What lies within

Will never hide

It burst forth

Soft amethyst light

Washing away

The stain of the night

Love and Lost

Love What does it mean? You said that you loved me, What happened? You started ignoring me You said you wanted me You said that we would work out Where is that guy now? When I need him Where is he? I try and try to be ok with this But I never am And I doubt I ever will be But I need you in my life I love you I always will I don’t know how I can just break off And not talk to you anymore But I will have to try I don’t want to be played with I don’t want to be lied to I respect myself too much To play your games I respect myself too much To keep believing that you love me You said that we could be together But when? You are always gone And when you get back I’ll be gone When? Where? How? Will I ever see you again?

My Forever Shining Star

All the oceans in the world 
Can’t hold the tears I’ve cried
Nothing in this world  
Can take away this pain inside

I can’t believe you’re gone from me 
I can’t believe its true
I never wanted memories
I only wanted you

I miss the little things you said
Those words that meant so much
I miss your eyes, your laugh, your smile
I miss your every touch

I miss you every morning
Every night and every day
I’d give all my tomorrows
For just one more yesterday

When they asked what words I want 
Engraved upon your stone
The only words that I could say
Were ‘darling please come home’

You were my every reason
My hopes and all my dreams
Someone to believe in
When I questioned what life means

Always there to guide me
My forever shining star
I’d give my all to have you here
Or be there where you are

In a world of changes
It’s the soul that never dies
In a world of strangers 
I still see me in your eyes

This pain will never go away 
My shattered heart wont mend
Lonely days and empty nights 
Are now my only friend

But if you’re looking down from up in Heaven 
You will see
That part of you forever more 
Will be a part of me...

SHIPWRECKED for white contest et al

SHIPWRECK  SURVIVOR

He was lost in white surprise
Of drugs and doctors quips
His mind was filled with flapping sails
Of white that guide the ships
To dance among the white capped rocks
In North white nights of June
Bring in the catch to catch the maid
Who’d be his wife so soon.

Wild hair so white it shamed the sheet
That soft caressed the grass
The grass-plagued daisies held her there
As clouds triumphant passed
In columns white the bossy clouds
Marched brisk across the sky
But none of them could match the spark
Of whiteness in her eye.

And then his shocked brain shifted
Jigged timed across his life
How many white nights had escaped?
The maid now was his wife!
Saw breasts so white that milk they gave
Seemed paltry in contrast--
To feed the babe that snuggled there--
The fruit of love surpassed.

Then shipwreck banged into his head
The white-flashed lightning zing--
He tested feet and moved his legs
Seemed he’d  survived this fling
Of nature’s whims again he’d live
 to tell the lusty tale
of how north winds had jumped from waves
to grab their ship's main sail.
Before the White Christ
Had emerged from his Semitic genes
The sailors would have cried for Thor 
To ease his hammerings.

Sailors lost were prices paid
To live in northern shores.
And, lost at sea was ever feared
By them, and wives adored.

He’d play a trick, they’d think him dead--
Would make a crafty tale!
By his hearth and in his bed
would sound a mourning wail.
His house would be a feast of black
Mad weeping would impress--
Then his imagination called her tears
He vowed each tear to bless

He smirked to think of their surprise
When he stalked through the door--

       An unsuccessful leap from bed—
                       He’d rest a little more.

And being man-- he pondered sex
And pleasures it would bring
There was no sizzling passion like                            
His lover’s offering.

Needle rudely poked-
Morphia drew him in
To dream the dreams of healing arms
       delightful prickles of his skin
       He found her far beyond his pain--Oh,  that smile that could disarm!
       In dreams , with wife, in languid bliss
         created white hot charm.
==============================================

PRE WHIT E STORIC

Winter wild of flurries
In ancient minds
Was a shelter
  From white fear

Wolves roved
  Stayed in packs
   Howled their presence
   Hating snow

Bears slept
 Hidden away
 Violence and terror
  Only a summer dream

White drifts
  Blazing blizzards
  Wrapped safety   
   Around fragile human life.

These Walls

I spent my entire life
Building these walls
Hiding among the shadows
So that I couldn't fall

Feelings I cast out
Independence then over shadows
Humor I tend to use
To fight my toughest battles

Not looking for love
Trying to keep flying solo
Keeping my emotions at bay
Tending to keep myself hollow

Then you caught me off guard
There was awkwardness at first
But as the days moved on
I began to feel the thirst 

The thirst of your love
Your kind and gentle touch
I began to show my feelings 
And at first  it was just to much

The walls I feel are breaking
My heart is fully exposed
An award sir you should receive
Because no other person has known

Its only been a short while
But I hope this lasts forever
I'm trusting you with this gift
I'd say your rather clever 

So please don't take advantage 
I'm starting to stand tall 
I love you babe with all my heart
Your the only one to break my wall

I finally see the light again 
Feeling blessed in each and every 
way
Thank you for for coming into my 
life
I really hope you decide to stay

So bring on the future 
Joys, fights, laughter, and tears
Because I know we can conquer 
Relationships I no longer fear

I hope this stays strong 
Lets go along for the ride
I look forward to what may come
Cause I know you will always be by 
my side

Autumn Razors

Every Autumn you come to  me

Like a haunting ghost

The vision is surreal

But the deep scar is bleeding

The deeper the cut opens

The pain radiates through my breath

You will forever be my unfinished business.

How Do I Erase You

I try so hard 
to forget you,
but the truth 
is I can't live
without you.

My days are 
unforgettable,
my nights are 
unbearable.

Ever since you 
went away, my 
life is not the 
same.

How do I erase 
you, the one I 
gave my heart 
to.

Give me a reason 
to walk away, my 
heart cries out...

Please stay !!

If we were never 
meant to be, then 
why can't I let it be.

Daylight Past

I hear the sound of pouring rain,
And wonder if he hears the same,
I’m living in daylight past,
How could I forget to ask?
Did you really mean what you said?
How could you hurt the hand that fed?
You've forgotten how much I've cared,
There is no one else that has even dared,
Why did I push you so damn hard?
You were the one with the card,
How could this happen so fast?
I’m living in daylight past,
I wonder if he feels the same,
My heart is pouring rain.

love, peace, and harmony.

i shall dance upon the wings of your love until i become so intoxicated with your 
peace that i am resting within the spring of your life.

let me touch the pain of your most hidden self and take you to a place that the 
rose give birth to her petals and the fragrance of time give jubliance to harmony.

i have tasted the cruelty of life and its fallacies and came to know this simple 
truth.  only the sweetness of love peace and harmony can only truly be founded 
once you have really known the indept heartaches of life.

then shall you truly appreciate the essence on love peace and harmony that shall 
be free from deception.  truly then shall two hearts become symbiosis and know 
the splendor of the GOD-LOVE given only to those beings who are worthy if its 
nectar that flows ever so miraculously  betwixt their physical-self.  all else is just 
and illusion to love, peace, and harmony.  yes! they are mere moments of wasted 
pleasure without substance.  oh how mellifluous is the heart and mind that

You Took More Than You Gave

You Took More Than You Gave
You say you want to be friends 
But I think I will hate you instead
You took more than you gave
Then put me in the grave
Of lovers left behind
How could you be so unkind?
You lead me on for two solid years
The happiest of times
Until I told you I need to be loved
Now I remain unloved
A victim of your crimes
Crimes of the heart
One of the women
That you left behind
You threw me away
Went on your merry way
You say you want to be friends
But I think I will hate you instead
You took my happy heart
You tore me apart 
You said I deserve more
Then closed the door
My broken heart is still bleeding
It’s your love I am still needing
So yes 
I think I will hate you instead

Silently I Go Insane

Staring out the window pane
Silently I go insane
Remembering what I try to forget
Try so hard but haven’t yet
Thoughts of you invade my mind
I try to leave the past behind
But images engraved in stone
Haunt me when I'm all alone
This searing endless pain I feel
Stabs me with its blade of steel
I cannot laugh, I cannot cry
Feelings and emotions dry
You say forgive; I cannot do
Not since I lost all faith in you
You cannot stop what has begun
You can’t undo what has been done
You used, abused, cheated and lied
You took my dreams; you took my pride
You took my soul; my sanity
You took my trust and dignity
Honest, faithful, loyal and true
Everything I was to you
Believing all your thoughtless lies
Until I saw through your disguise
Now I’m left with pain and sorrow
How do I get through tomorrow
I know I must forget I cared
Forget the love and dreams we shared
Forget the man you used to be
Remember what my eyes did see
Remember all you did so wrong
Remember now I must be strong
Refuse to play this mental game
Or silently, I’ll go insane..

The land of my birth

I left you long ago for a place unknown
Every time I remember how it used to be
My heart is always flooded with memories

It was not always about the running water, electricity or the good roads
It was simply about the rich abiding love that people shared with others
If I did not show up at church, somebody stopped by to check that I was okay
If they did not turn up at a place, it was my duty to be certain that everything was alright

Neighbors were family friends not just people you waved to
Deeds were done not for a fee but out of love and that was the way we rolled
I became a mother for the first time in a strange land, I could not be more lonely
Husband had to go to school, I had no one to turn to

I called my Mama, thousands of miles in Africa, I wept and wept
All she could say was, "baby you can do it"  you go on and be blessed
It was tough, it was hard but I made it
If I did not know God in a personal way, I might have lost it

I miss you Oh land of my birth every now and then
The laughter, the pure joy, the unfailing love I shared with others
The help of others that was always at hand
Everyone looking for what they could give not what they could get 

Though you have your share of woes but you are still the land of my birth
Though you are still developing as a nation, you have qualities that can not be compared
I have found a home in this place, it is no longer strange
I have been blessed with a family and friends that do care

Bandita Beauty -

A Valentine Write For My One & Only Street Angel -

I met you in a town of a thousand hustles,
a big stage supporting a million words,
a large world where the hunted & hunter interchange desires,
our souls touched eachother electrically, gently
long before compliments & reasons garnished the billboards,
you were an invisible passion simmering within me,
you've become a woman strengthening my very Being,

creation is the ambition that excites us most,
revelations and truisms scampering and giggling
up and down the streets, all about the universe,
angels couldn't ignore us even if they wanted to, wings with no frost,
Poetry, our vehicle for adventure, the stich to our begining,
on this Valentine's Day I need you to be mine, with Love unrehearsed -

Ballad of Alexandria the Female Knight

Alexandria was a gallant knight,
She used to sit at Arthur’s Round Table.
Dressed as a boy, she helped knights fight evil
As the Blue eyed hero of this fable.

The young lady fell in love with Arthur,
But unknowing, he married Guinevere.
Alex’s heart was hurt, but she stayed true,
She battled alongside him without fear.

Sparring with Lancelot, she learned to fight,
Alex earned respect from her belov’d king,
He never knew she was an armored girl.
He only saw her long weapons in swing.

On a dark and stormy night they set off,
The knights of Camelot looked for The Grail;
Alex as custom rode by Arthur’s side.
They searched through forest glades without avail.

Finally they came across a large cave,
Its dark and dank depths were filled with despair.
Alex entered in front of the brigade,
Arthur gave her braveness no thought or care.

Down in the black unfathomable cave,
At the farthest reaches a light appeared.
Guided by instincts, they knew this was it,
The home of the Holy Grail they revered.

The room guarding The Grail sparkled with gold,
Hundreds of cups lined the intricate walls.
Together the comrades stood and puzzled.
Which of these cups would bring about their falls?

Would it be a goblet, made out of glass?
Could something like The Cup be plainly wood?
Arthur studied the many chalices.
He thought he’d found it, no one understood.

On a pillar was a gold glass, shining.
Its pleasant brightness filled up the whole room.
Arthur was about to drink its liquid
When Alex interfered and met her doom.

Arthur’s brave knight wanted to try it first,
She knew the wrong choice would bring instant death;
So she begged Arthur to let her test first,
After drinking, she soon ran out of breath.

Alex knew that Christ was a carpenter,
She wasn’t surprised that he’d chosen wrong.
Alex knew that her love would bring her fall,
So our hero bade a silent so long.

Magic City

I grew up with an understanding
that magic lived in a city
of blue lights and coveted sin,
that men were built to be
senseless steel buildings
tall enough to shoulder any storm
but too condescending to shed a tear
they they will continue to be
the knight in shining amour 
as long as the darkness
does not fade
and that for as long as you
shall say yes, they will stay
But this woman
is too robust to care
she locked her feelings
in her heart and fed the key
to the furnace
but caring isn't exactly
something you can contain
if it becomes too much
it lurks through the peep holes
and key holes
then finds the next taxi
to the city of magic
and even becomes the demon's
advocate.
So on most days she finds
herself bed strapped 
and longing to know him
to breathe his air and maybe even
hear him talk
a whisper out of this man
jubilates her soul and sends
an after shock twitch through her
Now imagine what his touch
can do, but sadly
he wears rubber gloves
with thermal absorbers
and makes him cold
with a fire that glows only
from his eyes...
...she should buy a heater....

I love the Singer in an All Girl Band

I love the Singer in an All Girl Band 
Loch David Crane, 1976

I dreamed about  'ya in your pixie shoes
and watched ‘ya stomp on all my blues;
I dreamed about 'ya in your fishnet tights
and how ‘ya kept me up all night.

I dreamed about 'ya next day too      
when my mind should'a been on school.
I dreamed about ‘ya in your leather skirt
‘til my heart began to throb and hurt.

I dreamed about 'ya at a biker dance,
a third leg grew inside my pants.
I dreamed about 'ya and what I’d do
if I could go to bed with you---

But you don't know me an' I think it's true
that I could never succeed with you.
I may as well make other plans
'cause I love the singer in All Girl Band.

My heart is locked in my rib cage
prisoner of a new-wave age; 
the only way to set it free
is if you will make love to me.

I've seen the future-- it's black and blue
from random violence, dancin' too;
but that is where I'll have to stand
'cause I love the singer in All Girl Band.

let me hear that song again

Let me hear that song again,
		the one with you ,me and the falling rain...
			let me hear once more the melody,
			the rivers, the stars,the wind and the sea...
		The song that played when we were together,
		the song of happiness and unending color...
			The music that played when you first came to me,
			the song of unchained passion, that soul touching memory....                    
		the music we shared as we walked in the sand,
		the music of breeze and water as you held my hand...
			the music my heart played when you looked into my eyes...                     
			The music of your laughter and the birds in the skies...                        
		Its time now, and it has been so long, please come along,
		And once again let me hear that song.....

Toxic Logic

take my soul and crush it... like you do... every day... You've never looked so beautiful as your figure walks away the sad screech of my broken heart as it ceases to play you took me along for the ride of a lifetime, only to throw me away, every single day, and it is a crime, without reason or rhyme, to push me along with your toxic logic,  abandoning me again with an afflicted soul,  and my heart doesn't know that it is your toxic logic that twists me up inside brought on by your reign, and I can't recall my name Once again in my little hell, all by myself, my very essence betrayed, is there any more to tell? Lie after lie has fooled me, but now I'm done But I still love you, so my pain is far from done. You think that I'm inferior to children, that you can't talk to me, though I've been here since day one, why can't you see? that my existence is for you, and no one else,  and the sickest bit of it puts me in a rage... and i try to turn the page...  But I'm trapped in your toxic logic,  abandoning me again with an afflicted soul,  and my heart doesn't know that it is your toxic logic that's killing me inside brought on by your reign, overwhelmed by pain I see the world in black and white, no color left for me, I gaze across the room, and what do I see? I see yet another soul about to be ensnared, by this predator, but I simply don't care. I lost a part of me, and it used to let me love, But it has been snatched from me by this uncaring troll, and here I am, an empty vessel of defeat. I simply don't know, I truly have been beat. But as I retreat... from anger flows heat... Seared by your toxic logic, abandoning me again with an afflicted soul, and my heart doesn't know that it is your toxic logic that branded me inside brought on by your reign... damaged by pain... The last tether to you broke, I'm free at last. an empty part inside remains, holding me fast. I sink to my knees as the vacuum in my soul starts to shrink, loving you brought me to insanity's brink. I slowly raise my head... and gaze ahead... No longer captive to your toxic logic, that abandoned me with an empty soul, and my heart now knows that it was your toxic logic that tortured me inside under your maniacal reign... which gave me nothing but pain…

MY PEN - PELLER

It is in your sacred knowledge
That I have loved you since days of Higher College.
I was always shy to look you in the eyes
For those eyes were hot enough to melt my ice;

Today it remains the same
 I, a Lion you were able to tame.
I feel no shame telling you you’re my Cinderella
The inspiration that turns my pen to Peller;

Long as I shall live, 
In beautiful poems I shall give – 
Your beautiful nature beautiful words to keep
For this is the genius your love so equip.

SEDUCTION OF A MAIDEN   Song Lyrics

        first draft notes penned on the moors of England in May 2006     (call also means visit)


I remember
   When its morning
I remember 
   breezy spring
I remember 
    all the flowers
I hear larks
  in meadows sing

I remember
   When its autumn
I remember 
  red leaves fall
I remember
   heartbreak clearly
I remember 
  your last call

Hopeless
Hopeless
Hopeless, Hopeless is my name
Endless
Endless
Endless, Endless is my shame

I remember
   that last summer
When the roses
  were so sweet
I can smell
   their fragrant kisses
When my world 
    was so complete

I remember 
   winter coming
When your kisses 
    turned to ice
I remember tears 
    were falling
I learned lovers
    pay a price

Hopeless
Hopeless
Hopeless, Hopeless is my name
Endless
Endless
Endless, Endless is my shame

I remember
  When its morning
I remember
   breezy spring
I remember
   all the flowers
I remember
  how to sing

(ALTERNATE ENDING)
I remember
  when  it''s morning
All the heartache
   of the spring
Love has stolen
  my sweet memories
I've forgotten
  how to sing

Hopeless
Hopeless
Hopeless, Hopeless is my name
Endless
Endless
Endless, Endless is my shame

ACROSS THE NIGHT

Faeries flew

Around the tower of light

A Faerie Moondust Queen

A welcoming sight

In a world hidden

In the night

                        

Dancing lights

Ethereal glow

This I saw

Above and below

 

A welcoming Queen from the night

Of Moondust

Love

Starry trails

Around the tower of light

 

From the heart

All I could see

Is the tower of light

That lit the inner me

 

The ethereal glow

From the inner me

It is the secret

I came to know

 

The Faerie Moondust Queen

Brought me here

From the forests of richest green

Across the night

In moonlight

In moon shadow

To the heart  I began to know

TO SEE A STAR

A day spent at the stream

With Moondust

Infinities

And beyond

We will come back to the stream

 

To see a star

In its’ liquidity

In its’ depths

Of my heart

With Moondust

By the stream

 

Starry glimpses

Of futures’ laid

To travel

In many ways

Through streams

Through dreams

That can never fade

 

With the night….

The letters began to gleam

Upon the staff

What could it mean?

The way, home?

Could this be right?

 

I grasped the staff

Felt its’ mesmerizing power

And pointed to the stars

Numbers began to fall

In my heart

With startling rapidity

  

I remembered

When I launched an arrow

Of gold and brown

To the stars I felt its’ flight

The very same as on this night

 

High in the night sky

I saw

I felt

An eagle

With stars for wings

Such elation

That only I

Could see that constellation

 

The arc 

To travel

In my heart

In a night sky

To see

My constellation

See it fly

In life we shared a love a love thats been torn away. we try to understand but words cannot explain how much we need you and will never stop thinking of you to see your smile  after all this while is gods gift to us but now that gift has been taken away without a word to say and the pain we endure is because a life that we love so much death has taken away from us. so now we live with the tears but no more fears of suffering because now the angels sing a lovely song for the one who dearly parted.

REAL MEN DON'T CHEAT ON THEIR WOMEN

God simply made man and woman
to be together for the rest of their lives...
it's a blessing this heedless world
has not fully known;
and it's so rare nowdays
to see two people in love,
and promise each other to be faithful!
Is that all so impossible?

Real men don't cheat on their women,
real men give their whole hearts full of gold
to those who really love them;
I've come to know a good man
who did just that for his woman,
and he still loves her although she's old!

Unfaithful men, would you rather have
an unhappy home or feel a joy
as sublime as the sunrise in glory?
Untrustworthy men, give up what you crave;
you can be the strongest man on earth,
and still can't stop the tears gathered inside!

Real men don't cheat on their women,
real men adore and cherish them 'till they're gone;
to be beside them and share a lovely dream,   
to console and encourage them when they're weak!

A Fly and The Lady

A fly of unusual size
Saved from the web by the lady bug. 
It wasn't difficult to free him,
She just gave a pull and a tug.

A fly of unusual height
He seemed pleased to be the one freed,
But required distraction to ease
His troubled mind of the dirtied.

A fly of unusual strength,
His prime entertainment of choice
Was to test lady's loyalty
And to pirate her singing voice.

A fly of unusual might,
His twitchy face soon sprouted fangs.
Fear flashed through the lady's eyes when
The fly struck such horrible pangs.

A fly of unusual sight,
He showed the lady who he really was.
Wings shed and legs arched toward the sky,
The fly revealed his lying cause.

Because the fly was not a fly,
He was the one who spun the web.
He tricked her into loving him
So he could make her final bed.

All Alone, 11-19-09

Mommy, I know I left you here.

Ring ring went the phone,

Little did we know never again would I answer

Ring ring went the phone.

 

I was eating breakfast when

Open slammed the door,

That morning how strongly I would have denied

I would end up on the floor.

 

I tried to scream, Mom, I really did.

But he had me. . .

He used my garden tools to beat me.

He had me.

 

Those tools used to bring me so much joy,

But his purpose was to aid him.

I had loved greeting visitors with garden so green

It's not the tools' fault though, I don't blame them.

 

I shielded my face with my hand,

But soon that was broken. . .

The simple trowel was my doom,

All too soon, my face shattered and broken. . .

 

There was blood everywhere;

Mom I was so scared.

To stop fighting though,

I never dare.

 

The sleek black laptop I had

Been given for Christmas

Which held all of my

Favorite pictures of us,

 

With it and my purse,

He ran away,

Not knowing I wouldn't

Be here today.

 

The white-washed walls

Of the hospital room

Only all too well reminded

Me of Amontillado's tomb.

 

I left you in the hospital

Though.  All alone. . .

They caught him, have comfort,

Even if you're alone.

 

I'm sorry Mommy,

I didn't want to go. . .

But who ever gets a choice?

I had to go.

 

How little did we know, that

One day, ring ring,

Never again would I answer

That phone, ring ring.

Chained in love

My woman wants to make me believe
That other girls are bad and can deceive
She wants to see me not talk to any
She wants to see no text from angie
Angie is just my friend
She says that friendship must end.

My woman wants to make me believe
She is the only woman who live
She wants to see me with no other
Even those that call me brother
She wants to see no girl visit
She says my movements I should limit.


My woman wants to make me believe
That other people take much of my time
That she should have all the time
Always be there for her
Give all attention to her
She says I should always stick to her.

My woman wants to make me believe
Only from her love I should receive
When she hear of another woman
She falls sick
And grows weak
She says my love will kill her
She says it is better that way.


Chained in love
Only her she say I should serve
Chained in love
Only her she say I should have
Chained in love
Only her she say should stay in my every nerve
My woman wants to make me believe all this.

SWEET, TOPPINGS OF HAPPINESS

I want to create & bake
A cake, I want to make
Flavor of which one?
Help me find the best one

Chocolate - My ultimate favorite
I searched for ingredients
I gather one by one in a wreath
Taking notes on other reagents

As I mixed, blend and fold
Smile touches the ends of my lips
When I'm done; I put into a mold
Licking some mix on my fingertips..

I don't like to decorate
Neither do I like to garnish
All I want is to top and allocate
Allocate and made with love and happiness

Indeed, anyone who'll bite 
Such bitter sweetness clings 
He, she, you: I'll invite
Quite luscious in devouring

HE WAS MY FIRST

HE WAS MY FIRST

back in my senior year, when I first fell in love..
we were far from each other, by phone talks and messages... 
nine long months passed of pure sharing, couldn't believe... 
I fell for a guy, I had never seen personally.. 
we exchanged letters.. 
we talked two, three until wee hours on phone.. 
he let's me fall asleep without hanging the phone... 
after about a year we met, can't deny I still remember how it was.. 
I blushed on seeing him.. 
we held hands and talked refreshing the months we never saw one another.. 
We continued for about two years... 
however, we fell out, we broke up..
as he turned to another girl... 
he broke my heart as I set him free.. 
I wonder how much more will my heart break.. 
I don't even know if my heart still knows what love is... 
deep down, I still believe... 
but part of me is not trusting anymore.. 
part of me is lost... 
who will find me and be brave to take me out? 
from that lost... 
who will be?

Shaman Untitled

... long ago
in the timeless now,
we traveled, when
came a shaman
giggling in the glee of bringing us chest-to-chest,
his eyes mirroring our
lustful wonder of nipple-kisses
in burnished darkness, a dawn
flooding our mouths in feverish melding, and
the wind opening, ravishing us to
find our roots in olive groves between the pillars of our thighs,
temple incense, earthy aroma and soil-pores
birthing obelisks taut and sweetly anguished for
the suckling moon-circle of our lips,
and the shaman sighing in sanctifying the curve
of my nether realm as
your mount of worship fed
on your furrowing seed, sung
by hissing, the sacred pleasure of
toes curled like
your hair washing the valley of my neck,
your fingers against mine counting, then crushing
the blasphemy of time spiraling giddily
into the flirtation of your eyes
challenging the irises in mine, asking,
begging for us to meet again and again
until the sun is finally watching,
begging
for a temple of its own
and us inseparable
by even the sword of its rays
while the shaman smiles in sleep,
exhausted by our satiation -

… yet, come, there's morning on
the far side of this orb, but
no more luminous than the furnace of our lips
embracing our ageless now

… so, kiss me - kiss me, love, again, again and again...

Kiss of Destiny

A whisper on the morning breeze
to take my breath away
a love that brings me to my knees
as I awake each day.

One touch to show the love divine,
the love of you and me,
a dream that’s caught in poet’s line
yet stays forever free.

One kiss, your kiss, is all it took
to say that I belong
my heart became an open book
at last its sings love’s song.

O MYSTERIOUS SEA...

O mysterious sea...as light
as the eyes of my faithful sweet-heart,
inspire the distant soul
of this poet in distraught...
whose poem is still unfinished;
give him the rhythm and flow
to embellish his heart-felt verse
with sentiment and thoughtfulness!

Beyond the rolling waves,
ships carry secret lovers
who deride and defy their fate 
and set their souls on fire...
without feeling a need in dire,
or admitting an awful mistake!

O mysterious sea...
take their ship away
to a shore where nobody will see,
and let their fornication be 
as crude as the awakening
of everyone who's not afraid of indulging;   
I will take no part or joy
in their pleasure so openly and willingly! 

Could I forget that she ever existed, or
ever loved me with trust and sweetness?
Wouldn't it be unforgivable and wrong...
to waste what was blessed by holiness?
In this era of unfaithfulness,
many choose to do harm to someone else...
thinking only of self-gratification,
breaking the vows of dedication!

O mysterious sea as deep as the love
of my changeless woman,
who contemplates every sunset and dawn
with the purity of a dove:
let no beautiful eyes deceive me,
and sadly erase the innocence of her memory!

Steel Silk and Thunder

Steel Silk and Thunder

You ask me to condense this time, you say –
You ask how well I can squeeze and squander all
This day.
These thoughts are days and weeks full with moments
Stretched across the sky.
Yes,
I see this all too clearly, how your will is brought
About.
How unrelenting love can be; it drives the eyes
To see such fury – such wondrous spinnings in
The void; all one seeks chases now in folly;
This word appears again: Folly.
For foolish is the cover source of eye to shield.
All simple bleak remorse and cannon content
Bleeds within; a sleek sliver of truth confines me this
Moment; this baleful, primordial day’s mourning;
Oh, God I have loved thee so, I see you in the
Trees and skies, yet all slips through my hands
In measure; all is lost in fleeting pleasure – in
Movement, in matter of fuss and confusion; in
All I see amid horizons forming nothing, but 
This must be as it is this day –
I accept your dimly wrought decision.

Never Know

Never Know 

Looking out the window, seeing nothing.but the Light of the moon, shadows that fill the sky
I Lay in bed thinking of your smile, how it lights up my life.
your laugh sounding like soothing music that flows through the 
air. Calming every nerve.
your gentle kisses that makes my heart explode with love and enjoy. 
unlocking my heart, giving me hope that love will be once more 
A voice sofly speaking in range of my silent ears making me realize 


You will never know how deep my love flows, know my loving touch.
Never hear whispers of love brush upon your ear

You will never know when my thoughts of you will die
when my love for you will disappear.

Lying in bed thinking of the way you walk slowing time, the way you talk filling my life with joy and love 
Making me smile through my bright eyes.
a voice quietly speaking into my ear making me remember that,


you will never know how deep my love flows
never know my loving touch
The whispers of love brushing upon your ear

you will never know when my thoughts of you will cease to exsit
you will never know when my love for you will disappear. 

darkness begins to fill the light, fading into the distanst looking through watery eyes and feeling my broken heart. 
as it pushes through my chest like an uncontrolable river. With the swift beat of my heart reminding me
of the loneliness once more I realize that

I will never know your how deep your love flows
feel your loving touch
I will never hear whispers of love brushing upon my ear

I will never know of your thoughts of me
your love for me
I will never know if they exsit at all

Ballad

Once upon a time, in a land far, far away— I met the person whom I shall love. It was summer season—in the month of May, when I found my dearest dove— my life; my beloved; my prized; my cherished with no name. In that land far, far away, surrounded by the seas, by the name of Puerto Prinsesa, we tasted the sweet scent of its breeze— I and my cherished with no name— as little seraphs of heaven sang in bliss. Stealing glances, that’s all we had in that land far, far away; and also in stealing glances, our tale has ended, as we witnessed ourselves falling away. The sun never rises without bringing me trances of my cherished with no name; the wind always whistles but I never had the chance to hear the voice of my cherished with no name; and so, my heart desires of revisiting our land far, far away— to bring me back to the scenes, to bring me back to my once upon a time that my yearning heart once has seen.

Heather

Say queen what's your name?
in a moments delay, i caught a glimpse of your smile, looked in your eyes and saw someone i knew. someone i loved. a face of she that completed the entity of me holistically. I'm sorry your name is..
the spirit beckoned for my presence, i listened but in hesitation i declined the conversation. i remembered the moment my heart shattered into pieces with ends that would no longer be proportionate to any puzzle. the moment my breath became my suffocation, the more i swallowed i saw cloudy pictures i lost sight. i thought i was dying, no one to resuscitate me. she left me in that space hopeless.
speak again, what's your name?
the eyes delivered my trance, thoughts spinning, emotions flipping, i was turning into a ball of confusion, i heard the name but the familiarity was expelling too much energy, i couldn't find the rhythm of me lost in my memory, it's good to remember her, in fear i ran to the the lowest hole but climbed the highest and still didn't reach ground level. i still need her.
you asked my name...
the voice of my sanity, it rang like anita baker angel on a sunny sunday stunning sun rays beaming of the beams of my forehead, tingling the roots to the follicles of my tendrils. speak to me spiritually because verbally i submerge in blue hues with purple colored canvas i become a lush of words. speak to me emotionally with your hands covering mine, feel my pores into yours, drowning in love. whisper slowly in the pits of my being, i need your words to linger this moment may not happen again...
your name  happines huddled around ampled eager evident total tenacity heighten humility eventually enmeshed rhythm rupture.

Invisible Chains

Longing for arms that once held me tight
Longing to make love to you - it once felt so right
Longing for something…I’m not quite sure
All I know is when you held me 
I felt so secure 

I wish I could close my eyes - start this life over 
Wake up in a new time and place
And start each day 
Smiling back at your beautiful face 
It’s your laughter I miss, your sweet gentle kiss…

Still I need to remember 
That day in September
When you said you never loved me
 Said you set my heart free

I think you will agree…
That the love that we shared 
Was but one sided
The love I felt for you
Was sadly misguided

I fooled myself, I wasn’t that smart
Thought I could be the one 
To unlock your heart

I thought I was living my dream 
Didn’t know I was living a lie
A lie I was too blinded to see
Until you said goodbye

Loving you was all that mattered
Now I’m left to pick up the pieces of my heart…
Now broken and battered 

The time has come to close this chapter 
I’m no longer your slave
You are no longer my captor
For you didn’t know what you had
I would have gone to the ends of the earth for you
Would have loved you forever 

So yes it is time 
Time to break these invisible chains 
Of a love
That was felt only by me
These invisible chains 
Of a love that was never meant to be

An Escape From You

Can I stop the sobs
Am I strong enough
To escape their evil
To deny what’s real

I ask myself why God would
Stick me in this jail, my own hell
So if I get help I might not feel
My own manic episodes, this is real

Am I bleeding
Am I seeing the truth
Or is it just a way
To deny my love for you

They say 
Just pop a pill
To numb 
All that can’t heal

Can I stop the sobs
Am I strong enough
To escape their evil
To deny what’s real

Is it delaying the problem
Is it sticking a bandage
On a broken arm
Am I covering the truth
Is it an escape from you

I have no idea
If it’s the right thing to do
But all I know is
I must forget you

So I’ll take this bitter pill
And I’ll conceal my inner hell 
Cause it’s all I can do
To stop loving  you

Fairy Tale Hearts

I don't know much but I know this feeling very well.

You make me believe everything I've heard in fairy tales.

If Loving you is sinning then im grinning on my way 2 hell.

Some day the world will end but my love for you will never fail.

This is my obsession slash confession so my fate is sealed.

Every single second is a blessing that my soul can feel.

If Loving you a crime I plead guilty and I won't appeal.

Lock my heart away like a secrete that you cant reveal.

Trust is built with time by design till every single doubt is killed.

Recall The Dream

I can't recall you
But I saw you
In my nightly dream
You looked real but
even still
You were far away
Will I see you in my waking day?
I do remember
In mid December
You were in my dream
You were faceless
Taking up space and
Standing tall and serene
So I went to sleep and again you creep
Back into my head
I smell the masculinity 
I feel the energy, as I lay in my bed
You looked real, but even still
You are far away
Your silhouette is all I get
Will I see you in my waking day?

the beginning of the end

We have in our hearts

Always

Castles and Halls
Tapestries

Faeries too

Most of all

Love

 

So rich, my love

Of Whispering Trees

Elements and seasons

Of magic and nature

Of eagles

Soaring high above

 

The journey of me

Of you

In the forests

Of richest green

How we laughed

and loved too

 

That love will always triumph

Over everything

That Heartstones and Shadowfires

Belong to you

Of ships that sail

It is of these things

That mean

You cannot fail

 

You will find something

In everythings

and everything in somethings

The Wise Ways

Thoughts

Sometimes late at night,
   after I turn out the light,
   I sit back and dream.
Then for a moment,
   Im alone,
   or so it seems.
I dream of you,
   and what I might do tomorrow.
I think of our time side by side,
   and wonder how much more I can borrow.

By Chance or Divine

Not sure why your path crossed mine
Was it just life,
or" The Great Divine"?
It was so easy the day we met
I'm sure its a day, I'll never forget.
We laughed,we talked,and walked by the lake.
God has a plan
There's no mistake.

Your beautiful voice,the songs you sing
A country gentleman....
Or was it a dream?

It wasn't a dream
Cuz, you're still here
By chance of divine
Whatever the case.
Two peas in a pod
What a glorious day!

MATED

If only It were easy for me to part from thee

to go back to a time afore I knew you

ere your beauty and your love were forever in my heart branded

times together in my mind forever treasured, the beauty of you in my soul forever mated


Leaving nothing of all your immediate reminders.

A caress of flames to engulf me

And warm my cold loneliness,

A moment of bliss to bid me farewell

Without ire or regret


Though I cannot claim from thee my heart anymore than I can claim the moon from the skies for your love.


The heart wants what it wants and I cannot even begin to grasp the reasons neither can I fathom the depths of these alien feelings,

Only that should I lose you after I've just found you, I ....cannot imagine going on.

Please come back to me

It’s the 17th again today
Cant believe how time has flown
The day since you left me
All alone

At first I felt free
I spread my wings to fly 
Now I realise flying is hard 
If you have to learn it alone

Was I bad for you
Why did you pack your bags
I am bleeding by your words
Goodbye

I still look at photos 
Wanting you here 
I still put them in frame 
As if your still here

But realising you have left me
I’m bleeding in the dark
My feelings running around
I cant control my heart

Please come back to me an changed man
As I have worked to hard to let you go
I want to wake up in your arms 
One last time o, no

My love

The sound that stirs my inner soul hath no comparison to the beauty in you I 
behold. My heart though it longs to be bathed in your grace, I yearn much more 
to hear you speak my name. For your words are like gold more precious than life 
that to hear your spoken word would bring peace in this night.

Stagnant

Blue above and 

Blue below,
 
Clumps of clouds,

Falling slow.


Airplanes surge but do not move.

The elephant passes in the room.


I try to sleep, 

to turn away,

Turning pages

yet the story stays


Stagnant.


I look everywhere except at you.

I see nothing, except for you.

Because

The soft waves of the sea
Lapping at my feet,
Tell me their secret as I sit
- quietly and listen 

They tell me all stars and heavens 
exist solely for me
because...
They tell me colors are more intense for me 
because...
And songs so sweetly delightful for me 
because....

The waves enlighten me
to a purity that exists 
- a purity that repulses all evils 
because...

A purity like a lance, 
Piercing straight to my heart 
because...

Because of you, my true love

The Phantom of Menace

Hidden beneath the surface behind a masked disguise, The truth about my Prince Charming was veiled in his eyes. So full of Love and Kindness so quick to lend a hand, Everybody loves him they'd never understand. Gifts of love and flowers after another fight, I really must provoke him I know that he is right. Adorning me with his love he does show tenderness. As long as I obey his every need we'll live in happiness. He makes me feel special Though at times I feel so bad I really dont mean to do it but I know I make him mad. I know that he really loves me but I mustn't disobey, I just want to make him happy I know no other way. He does patches up the marks though my face he will not touch, So no one else see's that I disobey him that much. He's good at hiding our secret So no one else know our flaws. He's loved by all who know him And though I love him it does hurt. I sometimes wonder why But he does it so to teach me still it always make me cry. There are times that I hate him for pain and the bruises no one see's. Although I know he loves me so Why does he do it to me? Maybe one day I would learn how not to decieve or disobey Oh how it must make him feel and why I must always pay. No one else suspects it For he never marks my face To them he's a friend to all to me, The Phantom of Menace.

Solitary Admiration

Since my first glance
Of the lady like a gazelle 
Along the silent street
I have hoped
To meet her again.

Since the first gaze—
My solitary admiration of her ebony figure
Along Joseph Harrison street,
Passionately have I scripted
My heart’s sequential expressions:

“Let me fill your heart
with bundles of gazania flower,
let me into your warm arms and
hover my lips over yours
in the confines of my gazebo.”

“Let me have a taste 
of your succulent breast--
a sweet cherry in the forest--
to bedew my rusty heart
for being in love again!”

Severely, Shallion hissed
And grasped my thigh,
Slowly she clung her red-lips
Tighter to my subtly moistened lips
Along the silent street.

A REACHABLE HAPPINESS

Happiness, you are an endless pursuit
Everyone wants and likes you full
Exactly no one where you are
Your "cost" even no one knows

Abounding penny and richness
Signature brands of clothing
Dazzling priced jewels and gems
High technological tools and gadgets

Are they the ones that gives true happiness?

Each persons struggles to work
Competition a cyclic phenomena
Continuum courses to improve
All these, an avoidance of being poor

At the end, attaining all these..
Permit me to ask you..
Are they also the ones that gives happiness?
Maybe it does gives happiness

But how long?
How genuine?

Reality speaking, some have these
But they are not really happy
Some feels the lost and emptiness 
Above all, some feels longingness

Happiness is frantically been within reach
It has always been within reach
Found basically in your ownself and others
Ponder and tell, if do you believe so?

Just Like Women

A brave and courageous knight,
Dressed in shining Armour,
 Was a feast to the eyes,
Of young and beautiful women.

And this was exactly what happened,
To the great Knight of Cotenbury,
Whose head was held high,
And who walked with the royal stride.

Oh,but what a disappointment was it,
To those young and beautiful maidens when they found out,
He was already married,
To one of the most beautiful princess!

I'm Only Saying

I'm not asking you to make me your world
I only want to be part of it......
I don't need the biggest or brightest star named after me
But,I'd love to be the twinkle in your eye.
I don't want to rule a nation
Just hoping to be your Queen.
I'm not asking to be put first in your life
I'm asking not to be put last.
We don't have to have our own special song
But maybe one day you and I can live in harmony
You don't have to think of me 24hrs a day
But,I pray that I'm thought of a little each day.
You don't have to agree with everything I say
But, please respect me enough to listen.......

We.Quit.

We fuss. We fight.
Can't get this right.
I swear I'm done and try to leave,
But I can't. I want you here with me.

You say we're done, that I'm crazy,
But still you never actually leave.
Yet somehow, nothing's better than this.
Through everything, we just can't quit.

lost souls

There we were driving down the road.
I said I love you and I meant it,
you sought my hand and took it.
There we were holding hands like two lost souls 
who don't know where to go.

I feel forgotten,
so lost,
nothing left to be strong for
maybe I'll give in...
to what?
I don't know,
anything that tempts a lost soul.

And you,
even your bones are sad
your very veins cry and yet...
you make plans
to fall in love,
move on.
I'm so...forgettable.

I may be lost
but at least I'm aware.

You don't know what to be
and you pretend to not grieve
as I cry behind my sunglasses
at the lucky fields who don't miss their mother.

Saw a mother 
pushing her child
on their homemade tire swing
and I was jealous.
My very heart turned green.
I wish it was me.
I wish it was me.

Five months and twenty four days.
Five months and twenty four days.

Never been away from her that long.
If she were pregnant it would be starting to show
oh
why do I think of such things?

Her Sunday drives to the beach.
Her Dad's cigar getting her sister in trouble.
Hearing God's name for the first time.
Falling in love when she met you.

Someone,anyone:
tell me it won't be longer.
Tell me it won't be much longer.

Summertime in Malibu

Summertime in Malibu




	Laying on the bed completely naked, 
Watching the moon and drinking my Martini,
	How I wish to have you at this moment, my summertime.
Without change anything except our bodies,
	Our lips, our way of standing by one soul,
Hoping for a unseen love so beautiful, so pebbly off,
	For a night and a day I can fall into these mountainous thoughts, and carry myself away into this nothingness
			As they say it...


	Ah, where are you, summertime? Where?
Under the widen edge of my bed, transfixed by more
	Revelation, to your eyes closed, where the spirit
Wept in the darkness, telling me I am so unappeasable
	To be carried without wonder?

No tears came from my eyes: the lovely flood of living,
	When I froze the tranquil wave of the waiting
Pain of this imperial love that he had given
			From inside me, I closed my legs --Oop!
			My eyes and I go to sleep.

Come back to me (if you still love me)

Memories, i want to erase.
In my brain and they hurt me so.
Do away those days where my baby loved me.

Love, i want to forget.
In my heart it is causing me pain.
Do away one who is still so precious to me.

Rain drops falling all over me.
My baby sees no pride in me anymore.
I got to let her go so she can be glad.
I know this moment will hurt me so.
I searched but there is no means.
Wash away all that is in me.

Words does not help no more.
Feelings does not give assurance no more.
Actions does not promise hope no more.
So, my baby, if you want to go...i am still me.
Come back to me..

I will be loving you even when you are gone.
I will be crying my hearts out for our love.
My baby...if you can still accept me for who, what and where i am.
Come back to me...

I will still be who, what and where i am.
My baby, ...if you still love me.
Come back to me (if you still love me).

SEASONS OF LOVE

We met during winter 
He 's a sophisticated jester 
A twinkle on that saturday night 
A nightingale on my sight 

We became lover on spring 
Love pours on rain and lightning 
Marks on one way road 
Shows like continuous chord 

We shared love last summer 
Under his expensive chandelier 
Inside his enchanted place 
I 'm like a princess blinded to his face 

You leave me this autumn 
In pieces and torn 
Imprison to the feelings i have 
In this pluasible love

 Ojos Españoles
   
 
En su sorpresa agradable de los ojos
A usted roba mi corazón usted que no saldré
Mis sistemas son van mientras que emprendemos

En sus brazos caliente y cierre su latido del corazón
contra el mío que usted es thine 
En mi mente usted está allí toda la hora

My First Son

You just came into this world cold and bleak of your father/ 
But you made my life mean even more ever since your sister my baby daughter/ 
You make life upon soul as a man out in the desert that needs water/ 
I'm a full-time daddy now so there is no room for my mistekes to let me faulter/
 
I know I ain't the best daddy in the world son but I will do my best 
I know alcohol can bring me down but son you just being born makes me want out this mess/
 I want something better for you than me when you are ready to leave daddy's little nest/
 I sometimes just sit here and watch your sweet little stomach go up and down with every breath/
 
You are so innocent and I am so guilty of being a sinner/ 
I'm working on being a saint but how can I when all I do is let alchol be my only winner/
 My addiction gets thicker as my liver and kidney's continue to get thinner/ 
I just want to be able to support you son with clothing, a home and an every night dinner/
 
I love you son, I really do/ 
So I must help myself past these self-made lies and do what is right and true/ 
I'm still an alcoholic and addict in a crazy rez life game where I always seem to lose/
 But with your birth I can start anew/ 
I got big time father responsibilities now to where it will forever affect the choices that I choose/
 
You my first and only son/ 
As of now your my only one/ 
I look forward to our times of hardship and the times when we have fun/ 
I was at a slow walking pace but because of your birth it got my mind on the run/
 In LOVE you NOW and FOREVER because your My First Son.

memories of you

Golden bits of dust ,from a glorious past,
	lost in the winds of memory , of moments that last,
		for years in the hazy and shadowy alleys of the mind,
		flecks of existence that were left behind,
 		in the desperate effort to find a better tomorrow,
	shimmering reflections in the lake of the heart,
	lost in the depths, in the search of a fresh start.
		A whirlwind of thoughts comes to me today,
		stirs something inside me that longs to get away.
	something old,ancient , in the labyrinths of my brain,
	that threatens to change  all i know ,and drive me insane.
		they say you reap as you sow,
		i believe as it all comes back to me now,
	everything i lost in the struggle against time,
	as my vision was distorted and blurred with grime,
		of my own false belief and an illusion of success,
		in a mad race for what i thought was happiness.
	today as all falls silent, my ambitions come to rest,
	I realize, the memories of you are my real treasure chest.

Clock Is Ticking Fast Poem

Hello my december love
you are sexy to me.
Baby finer then a blue star
in a cold winter night honey.
My heart yearns for
your sweet tender embrace.
Holding you ever
so tightly my dear love.
Just like a warm cool
summer breeze.
Into your ocean
deep i want to become.
As the stars engulf
and made powerless.
For such a good love
so very true i all most.
Drowned in your passion
my sexy lady of love.

Bad Weather

You and I, we walk together
When it's raining...love, you are my umbrella.
with you, I know I can overcome any storm
we'll just stand thru it, arm and arm...
lightning and thunder
we are oblivious to the sounds...
so wrapped into one another-
...wouldn't even notice if an earthquake moved these grounds
rain drops glistening on your body...
I love to see water shimmer on your skin
-so we're going to play in this rain-
...LIFE
...it could bring us Hurricanes
but with you...
all the damage and pain the heavy wind brings...
I'm oblivious to the push...
so into one another-
...I could fly away and wouldn't even notice the wind's swoosh
while others panic on days like this...
we look into each others eyes, and we just kiss
...cause we know beyond this weather...
we have each other
and if this Tsunami should try to wash us away,
we'll float away together...
Tornadoes, we've seen our share, but we just stood there
-held tight onto one another-
cause we are not oblivious to the fact...
that after it all...
there will be a rainbow.

You Forgot To Love Me

 you forgot to love me. You forgot to share with me. You forgot to hold me at night and tell me you really care. I haven't got alot to say now, to you. But I will say this, i was true to the love game thatI put down. Now another  guy will have me in town. I'm not really the kind to mess around. Its not what I'm used to, or want to do. But you denied me is the truth. So I'm faithful to God only,he never leaves me lonely. He's the one that holds me and rocks me to sleep. He's the one that told me i can't be beat.

From above, beyond that


	All my life, oh God,

	To call pretty spring the song I sing.

You are mine, as the Mountains need of the sky.

You are mine, as the Streaming of blood 
	Melting Proteins. 
You are mine, as the Green light 
	Of the Needs you to lift me high.


	Why then I do not have you?

Replaced by light

I am struck blind...taken aback with piercing eyes.   
I am truly intrigued by you...
My will is not my own...

Your ever present light is replacing my darkness...

Caught up in a world wind of emotions ...
Ever quickly I grow closer to you....
Willing to take haste, I am overcome by the chase...

Your ever present light is replacing my darkness...

I cannot be away from you for it makes me ill...
Where time stands still...
Shall we meet again in that secret place?

Your ever present light is replacing my darkness...

I am fascinated  by your radiating passion...
Taken with your compassion... I faint.   
For it is with eyes that I see and ears that I hear....

Your ever present light is ...replacing my darkness...

rest, tiger, hurt

from birth you’re taught to fight and kill
to always get your prey.
you track and stalk, but be still
lest she get away.
and though you check the wind for scent,
oh, you must be clever.
for still you stop to shade your eyes,
because nothing fights forever.

so rest, tiger, hurt with me
and let me stroke your fur.
for just as sure as you can growl,
i know that you can purr.

and yes, you’re strong! and yes you’re proud!
and yes, you leave me speechless!
but know this, my fierce, fierce friend,
like me you have a weakness.
your teeth are sharp, your claws more so,
you’re bred to rise above.
but what i chase is sharper still,
and nothing hurts like love.

so rest, tiger, hurt with me,
and let me stroke your fur.
for just as sure as you can growl,
i know that you can purr.

i wont ask much, i promise you.
who cares how this will end.
for here, and now, i’m hurt more
by those i called my friends.
so share your shade, and share your seat
with this foolish stranger.
i’ll play nice, one more time,
though i know the danger.

so rest, tiger, hurt with me,
lets watch the sun just swell.
and you can growl, or you can purr.
but i will talk of hell.

So Little Time

If I had known how much I would
Have missed her  when she left,
I would have thought of deaths embrace
As robbery or theft.

If I had known how much I would 
Have missed her when she died,
I would have prayed dear Jesus please
Take me, but I just cried.

WHY DID SHE HAVE TO LEAVE ME!
WHY DID SHE HAVE TO GO!
WHY DID SHE HAVE TO DIE MY LORD!
WHY I WOULD LIKE TO KNOW!

She died so very suddenly
We did not have much time,
Though from the very day we met 
I knew she would be mine.

I loved her yes with all my heart
I prayed for her in life,
I prayed each day she would be blessed
I prayed she'd be my wife.

So lovely,tender,pure and free
I treasured all her love
She stored up for only me
This lady, was my dove.

Now I am left to wonder God.
Now I am left to pine.
Why did she die first Lord
Now when will come my time.

For fifty years in marriage 
Our hearts did intertwine.
She now has left to meet you God.
So very little time.

Before you

Before you:

 

Before you love was a word of foreign magnitude. It had no meaning, no depth, or even feeling, It was something I simply feel into blindly. I had grown accustom to pain, my lovers actions of immense throe causing heartache I had never wanted to know. My lips have kissed that of undeserving toads, like I was a wondering princess with wounds to show. My features were never found to be pleasing, my characteristics labeled as quite odd, making myself a curious handicap for any man to have, so the idea of prince charming was depraved, but then I met you.

 

Day by day a smile grew, I laughed with joy I had never knew, and an odd sensation even grew. My abdomen started to quiver with isolated flutters, butterflies causing jitters. My cheeks blushed with the perfect amount of rosy color and my once vacant mind rambling onward with thoughts of you.

 

Suddenly someone had become my day, suddenly someone had become my night, never in my life would I think all this to be true, but no lie could ever come from these words I write. For you give me reason to be happy, you give me love when I feel undeserving, and the kindness you show me is exhilarating, never temporary.

 

The way you care, the way you offer me compassion and show empathy for what I have to bare makes me feel strangely human once more. The way you touch my face, your fingers slipping through my hair, the way you stroke my pallid skin, whispering loving words in my ear, and the way you kiss my soften lips makes me feel wanted and every wall I have ever built suddenly no longer exist. I feel like a women, no longer a scared girl because now I know all the wondrous things love has to give.

 

Never do I want to lose my reason for vulnerability, I fully enjoy the free falling sensation and my heightened sensitivity.

 

And to think it’s all because of you.

I cannot settle for less

I cannot settle for less
With passion and drive
ambition and brains
I say, that he is best

We laugh, we play
We fight, we mend

Honest to God
Tis answers I seek
My mind made up
For sure tis not
So help me God
I need your grace.
