You Are My All

When on life’s seas I’m tempest tossed,
And my hopeful smile is all but lost,
When I need to survive at any cost,
You are my anchor.


My life is filled with simple pleasures,
My loved ones’ smiles I count as treasures,
When kisses are how life is measured,
You are the standard.


As time soars on and birthdays fly,
My hair is graying,  I don’t care why,
My mind is sharp, but not my eyes,
You are my youth.


Love is patient, love is kind,
And to the lucky, love is blind,
But when it comes to love that binds,
You are my love.

Last night while you were sleeping

Last night while you were sleeping, I could not help myself. I had a silent story for you, I just had to tell. 

I drew pictures with my fingertips, of hearts and "I love you's". Covering your soft smooth skin, with invisible tattoos. 

I saw you smile once or twice, it made me smile too. Right then and there I realized, I truly do love you. 

All choked up I grabbed your hand, and pressed it to my heart. Then gazed right down upon you like, a masterpiece of art. 

Your beauty overwhelmed me, I broke down into tears. Then whispered how much I love you, into your sleeping ears. 

I smiled as goosebumps on your skin, started to appear. Then laid with you and held you close, I had to have you near.

I ran my fingers down your spine, and gently through your hair. The peaceful flicking candlelight,  lit your skin so fare. 

I softly pressed my ear against, your back to hear you breathe. Then hummed a tune inside my head, singing "I believe."

Though far away in dreamland, your heart is mine to keep. It's softly beating lullaby, helped sing me to sleep. 

I hope that you will dream of me, I know I'll dream of you. I'll hold you right here in my arms, you are my dream come true. 

For life's a tale of many things, and powers from above. But I know now without a doubt, the greatest one is love.

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

Love Story

Thinking of thee day when I went to see, accidentally looking at you made me feel like I was on Extasy. I watched your eyes while they were watching me. Looking into my eyes you knew I had those qualities of motherly nurturing, morality therefore giving you that love story.. Connecting on all levels we both became thirsty eagerly, as if we had telepathy. Our minds and soul became as one, as our heart beats began to beat as one. Loving abnormally to an unusual degree, chastity pure purity our love story... Each day you spent with me, I took away all of your misery. I became your biggest fan fore you were my man, by your side forever i stand. Love so compact. Loving the monogamy having one mate at one time. Loving you for a life time. Mourning for your touch that I began to love so very much. Your generosity of your mentality intellectual capacity, your supremacy, supreme power of authority love for me. Is the best part of our love story. With each touch I lust, real love i gush. Having the ability for mobility to take tenancy inside of me. You became my property. We had symmetry I was the beauty, and your my harmony. True and forever exceptionally... Love story.

Groundswell Girl - Named by JB

Enter a storybook tale
Where I can be 
The heroine you hail
Lucid dreams of soft reflection
A touch heated with lust and desired protection
A breathe a gasp as we succeed 
Join the fairytale with me
Valiant night within dark eyes
the right movement and I make them shine
like moonlight on the steamy hot spring
care to follow for a little dip with me
Trailing like the water at my fingertips
Grasp me around my hips
As close as the breeze on my skin 
Whisper lies as I let you in 
Lips mumbling up my thighs
bare heart exposed to the sky 
fire burning in my veins
Am I a mistress of this lust or simply a slave
Trembling with desire
Take me till we've lost count of the hours
enter this storybook tale
Where I can be the heroine you hail

How Can We Hurt The Ones We Love

How Can We Hurt The Ones We Love?

How can we hurt the very ones that we love?
How can we easily neglect our God above?

It seems like I often heard about many victims
Many times, it’s from a loved one who’s been with them!

The hate and the anger that boils from deep within.
Often “boils over” toward our family and friends.

It’s the love of Christ that we need to find!
His love can totally cleanse our life and mind!

The hearts of many families are bruised and broken.
By the harshness of many of the words spoken.

If we would allow Jesus to rule and reign.
We’d have little reason to murmur or complain.

If we would yield our lives to the master’s will…
The emptiness and brokenness, he shall fulfill!

If we could allow ourselves to sit at Jesus’ feet…
He can make any family totally complete!

If we could just listen to what Christ has to say.
His words of life would brighten our day!

As a family…  Won’t you give HIM a chance?
And allow his love to change your circumstance!

Won’t you allow his spirit to bind you together?
You can experience his peace today and forever!

He can change your family throughout!
This is his will and what God is all about!

Ultimate Sacrafice

I have found a pureness within him that my soul thrives for.
I am driven by the desire to please him without boundaries.
His image holds the power to freeze my movement, the vibration of his voice holds the power to tremble me. 
His heart holds the power to break me, his soul holds the power to expire me.
I believe in him for his intention and desire.
I believe in him for who he is and his worth.
I believe in his now and his future.
I believe in him for his knowledge and his potential.
I believe in his skill as a provider and his force to become.
I feel he is somebody I had once lost.
I feel between us a bond stronger than mankind can create.
A fate unknown, undecided, I give myself to him to have, to do with it what he will, to make it his own.

Like No Other

Before the future and after the past
We have found each other’s souls at last

In the beat of a heart I was able to see
The rest of my life belonged to thee

When our eyes met it wasn’t a glance
Locked together in a forbidden trance 

For we had each given up on love
And being forgiven by Lord above

We were forever lost and on the run
Burying our pain by having our fun

Children scattered from here to there
As we stayed so high we didn’t care

We each knew when you come down
You lose your mask and face the clown

And that was something we couldn’t do
Until the day you met me and I met you

Unplugging the phone we locked the doors
I told you my sins and you told me yours

The people in our life just couldn’t believe
We found in each other the strength to leave

To change our fate was quite the chore
But there was noting we each wanted more

My children love you and yours love me
Because we have melted into one family

I wrote this poem because I want you to know
You beat with my heart and live in my soul

You have always been way more than my lover
You’re the friend I found who is like no other

her name is love

Dear love
i know you wont even remeber what i do
dear love you dont know how much i loved you
dear cupid i found your child 
dear god shes gone wild 
heart is spicy and flavorful never mild 
dear cat lady 
do you dare remeber me?
haha we went to san mateo elemantary 
sock hop heart drop photos of us send me back blissfully
and yet i could bet my breath you never even missed me
i remeber you so perfectly 
standing ther in front of me 
you took me to your house a few times 
to our memory i dedicate these rhymes 
your personification of beauty
is amusing and your your lips are lovely
.... love leigh 
love leigh i adore your adorability
entertwined with your sweet humility
i saved your picture for 4 years
stared at it every day so cheers
so here is the epitomy of my tears
ive drempt these words hundreds of times
with many differnt rhymes just to catch your attention
ive forgotton every one else, you are my exception
too much to mention that i remeber what you smell like
and when im stressed i remeber it to relive my tension
i loved you, and watched you leave
but somwhere deep down, i always belived
that id find you again, but never thought that itd actually be acheived 
you were the first to make me smile and feel my heart race out of my chest toward you
nothing felt more true 
more right more perfect, to have my hand held by you
i can only be your friend but my heart will always have a place for you.

When sparks Fly..

When Sparks Fly.



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

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

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

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

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

Three Thousand Miles

From three thousand miles away,
She waits for me to say,
What's in my heart,
And that we'll never part,
Such words come easy to me
For it is all I see
A love so sweet
Time nor distance can compete
We are as one
Under the Golden Sun,
Which barely does match her hair,
Oh, I wish I was there,
To hold her hand,
Walk that golden sand,
Into the distant light
Of eternal love so right
From three thousand miles away,
These are the words I say.

I'M GLAD I FOUND YOU

You are where I belong
You are the melody I feel in every song 
It seems as if I have been waiting a lifetime for love
Tell me is that what you’ve been thinking of
In my past relationships I use to rebel
When I see you I know you are my angel
Sent from the brightest of stars
Trust me I know who you are
That was differently heaven sent
So the love I have for you please don’t resent
Remember you filled my empty heart
When it was torn apart
You made my life whole
I love you from the depths of my soul
You are the part that completes my day
You are the words that I don’t say
You are the only one I adore
I could ask for nothing more
You gave my life that needed spark
When I am lost in the dark
You are my shinning light
Without you in my life it doesn’t feel right
When your lips touch mine there is a sweetness I’ve never known
I know I am where I belong, in your heart now that is home

"The best way to love is to love like you have never been hurt."

Your Mistake

'Love is patient'
'Love is kind'
The thought of love
Can turn you blind.

But... Now we must
Take some steps
To verify those
Deep regrets.

The first problem you see
Was that. . .
He lied about
You being fat

That in turn 
Led ya to
Beleiving that
He 'accepted' you.

Mirrors were made
For a darn good reason
And thinking you are nothing special
Is high, high treason...

But no!
He's perfect
And no! He's kind
Seriouslly sister
You've lost your mind.

The recipe to love Is that
You have to love your self.
It's not about your facial features
Or the size of ya belt.

The man should be a rock to lean on
And not! A heartless swine.
So please next time. Do pick him wisely
Make sure he has a spine!

Let Him Go

This poem I wrote. I call it " Let Him Go "

Sweetheart don't cry
Don't let him make you feel like your nothing
You do have family even though we are not close by
I know your heart is crushing
Don't harp on the past
Don't let him play with your head
You need to get over him fast
His feelings for you are dead
Over 2 years and you still don't have a ring
Your not the one he calls his wifey to be no more
Take a seat and listen up girl here is the thing
He's playing with your feelings and using you like a two dollar whore
I know you were smart once and can be again
He has you so brain washed it's not funny
I know hearing all this is a strain
Think of the example your setting for you little ones honey
Hold your head high and walk away from that loser mama's boy 
Show him that your the one that is too good for his sorry ass
Hell he's such a mama's boy you can find better pleasure in a toy
Your related to me so come on show your sass 
Let go of the past and look to a new future
Let go of the pain and the control freak
Say bye bye Looser
It will get easier one step at a time week by week......

Gypsy King

Glorious are the days we ride, my love.
You and I riding in the morning light.
Passions racing hearts are thundering.
Sunrise explodes pink and purple streaks across the sky.
You and I smiling, riding together in the first light.

Kindred spirits racing together chasing the morning star.
Intoxicated on the morning air.
Nowhere, but here in this moment.
Glorious is the day we ride.

Give Praise To God

Let us pray this very day, that God will surely come our way, to 
give us wisdom and knowledge from above, but most imporrtant his
precious love.  Oh give praise to God everyday for helping us along the way.

His love for us is so real, it is the kind of love that helps us live.  We share
his grace, love and his power all of this and more because he loves us so.
Why be miserable, sad and blue? when you should be giving praise to God who
loves you.  Why not praise God from the moment you rise, to thank him for
his sacrifice.  

Praise God for love he shows everyday, no matter what we do or say, God loves
us anyway.  He blesses us daily with gifts from above, food, water, air, all of
this let us know he really do care.  So why not praise God  for his love, so 
jump, and shout, praise God without a doubt.  So let's praise God for his love.

UNDER THIS RED UMBRELLA

UNDER THIS RED UMBRELLA The rain did not stop us romantically. Our love was to be enjoyed. Life span was our imagery. We are young adults in love. We walked in an embrace. We talked about family and friends. We were unity of togetherness in this scene. I looked away shortly and saw others doing the same. That momentary endeavor drew his attention as well. He leaned forward with protection so that I would not get wet. This red umbrella glisten from the night lights as we stroll through the park. The tree leaves were wet; this was autumn. Good spirits were in optimistic to longevity. The red umbrella reflects the leaves of the trees as it does my man’s adoration of me. Under this red umbrella are images of love! _____________________________________| User Name: Verlena S.

I Truly Do Love You

I will love you in every way.
I will always love you in some way.

I will love you everyday.
I will always love you no matter what others say.

I will love you until you feel okay.
I will always love you no matter what you say.

I will love you throughout any day.
I will always love you until my dying day.

the love we had seemed so far away

i look to stars and wishes flew through space never to be heard again
fun to friends hearts do meld and break facing until time ends
this loop that plays and beats that syncopate become but a gem
pleasure a chest opened in surprise feeling no need to defend
galaxies away lonely planets  please keep me in mind
 distance could grow something fond or lost between the lines
gps my love you can see  its still where I  left it behind
thoughts fade away with life love lives forever in my rhyme

Im sorry, I wanted more,with  all this space between
disconnected and I still look to that day
we talked on the phone, our separate homes
the love we had seemed so far away

without air i couldnt breathe squeezed until I'm passing by
no water flow my skin would dry and I return to the sky
sunny days would blacken out, attracting need for desperate lies
to make up for the beauty lost from death slowly closing my eyes
that fire once sparking motion snuffed in huffs slipping away
dwifting I sway shaky grounds where once I sat easily and stay
upon my feet I still float drowning out all thoughts that stray
Tho these ends can come swift its worse to miss and hear you say

Im sorry, I wanted more,with  all this space between
disconnected and I still look to that day
we talked on the phone, our separate homes
the love we had seemed so far away

down the road,flying free, I ride the wave and hope for your return
through several seas and cloudy peaks, storms of sand, I will not turn
helpless to fate and future events, nothing prevents something to learn
  sights may not sore, nothing much looking more, isn't my concern
I hope the best and happyness is true to bless you, not just in dreams
we can meet when we sleep discussing life while sleeping seems
thanks for trying Im not exactly dying, banes of  sentient beings
real enough moving on is rough, i'll love you forever, writting my means

Scorn

HAD FUN WITH ENTERING THE DICTIONARY FUN CONTEST sponsored by Delliah Ventura!
THESE ARE THE WORDS THAT HAD TO BE IN THE POEM 

Abomination scorn Affection Passion Yearning
Struggle Attempt Cherish Relationship Flame
Taste Tender Inner soul Bloom Bamboozle

HERE IS MY ON THE SPOT CREATION!..enjoy :)
I was a woman scorn 
Unknowingly  cherished a relationship
where the flame was no longer existent;
where time flew by in the distance and I missed
everything in my life I intended 
because I was accepting a me that depended
on him
I made an attempt to bamboozle the truth
and convince myself that he wasn’t screwing Kim
Ultimately I faked passion and lustfully feigned for affection
since I’d been betrayed
So, I got down on my knees and  I prayed 
I began yearning for knowledge of my Inner soul
I began to taste freedom and feel whole
The healing began and my consciousness rose - fresh bloom
It was no longer a struggle to end an abomination that would 
prove to be a path of doom

Old romantic

I take you by the hand, and lead you down to the bed,
'I love you baby', and you repeat the words I said,
I whisper in your ear, just what I'm gonna do,
Before this night is over, I'll make your dreams come true.

You didn't have to say it..  'cause I already knew,
But I'll give you what you want, for the trouble you've been through,
Oh my coo, coo, cha choo, forget stress as I caress you,
As I confess, that you're the best!  And it's just us two.

Time can fly..  I don't care.  I can't wait,
I hate being without you, and just lately I feel great!
Now we're cuddled up together.. forever isn't long,
Our passions grow strong.. I love what we've got going on.

  'Cause all day long I picture your face,
  Your eyes and your body, I could never replace.
  With our souls combined, we can sit back and unwind,
  And take it one day at a time.

I'm..  dreading the day, when you finally leave,
I'm a realist, it's not about what I believe,
But I'll survive, I'll live..  I won't die,
And no one will ever see the quiet tears that I cry.

However, that's the future..  and this is the now,
Forget the past, if you want, I'll show you how.
So hold on tight Girl, and go with the flow,
You've got a 1st class ticket, VIP, enjoy the show!

I won't ever stop, I won't ever go,
You know it sometimes feels like my heart is gonna blow!
You're the one, the only, great love of my life,
It's just a shame it had to cut me.. like a double edged knife.

KISSING ME SOFTLY

So Sugar sweet
Knock me off my feet
That exotic bliss
Wondering how did I get to a place such as this
I cannot wait for that kiss
Something you cannot miss
Fill me with desire
Set me on fire
Heaven on my mouth
More loving than the south
What an affliction
Easily a lifetime of addiction
Feast on its delicious monotony
If done right it will make you spend your money 
Sweeter than honey
The hunger is surprisingly quenched
Sometimes you might get drenched
It will have you in my mortal grasp
Come on do not be scared to ask
There so many random places
To give it on different part of many faces
As I yearn for  more
I slowly open my eyes to see you walking right through my door

TOGETHER

Me with you and you with me
You are what set me free
Together we can face our fear 
Our love can take us any where 
You make my world complete,
Together always you and me. 
Through sickness and in health 
In poverty or in wealth 
We are unstoppable 
But so loveable
Without any reason
Anytime or any season
We love each other, 
Care for one another
Together forever in harmony 
Once we are together things fall into place and we are happy 
In anger or in kindness
Whether all seeing or in blindness
Together we are strong
Loving hearts keeps us young
Yes now my dream has come true 
Now I can be happy and be with you

You Race Though My Veins

you race though my veins
like a manic fire truck
my eyes smodering from the engine
of your torrid passion
fire hoses squirting out my skin
let me in sweet darlin'
fling the ladder from your pounding heart
climb into my vacant mind
strip me naked and fling me
into your bubbling inferno
your liquid lava seething
every sweet cell breathing me in
as I slowly rise,
and dive into your
silky undulations 
microscopic penetrations
wrap yourself around me
and catapult me deep 
into your long forgotten sleep
let me in sweet darlin'
envelop me completely
my senses scintillating
corpuscles palpitating
drown me with your magic potion
breathe me like a dragon
soak me with your moist emotion
and lift my heart
high
into the tranquil eye 
of your whirling swirling hurricane
please
let me in sweet darlin'

Gratitude

Feelings of gratitude for you
Have changed me thick and through.
Thinking about you all of the time
Enlightens my attitude towards love and life.

Feelings of gratitude for you
Have shone light into the room of my soul.
Thinking of all the ways I could help you,
Opens my eyes to a higher truth.

Feelings of gratitude for you
Are as silent as light, hidden behind clouds of my own making.
Thinking of how much I’ve grown,
All because of the love we’ve shared and shown. 

Feelings of gratitude for you
Are what make me feel so in love with you.
Thinking about how we could be.
Now since I am less lonely and freer (to be me).

LOVE HURTS

LOVE HURT'S

        I want you to love me from deep within,
      not from the love that going to hurt me again.
        Not the love the going to make me cry,
    because the guy I choose to have in my life.
         Not the love that make's me bleed,
     not the love that make me cry on my knee's.
         I don't want the love that blacks my eye's,
          and everyone has to ask me why?
     Why do I have to lie to my family, and friend's?
            Just because you hit me again.
            All the love I have gave to you,
           is this really the best you can do?
      I made you feel like the star you are,
      how come I can't be your shining star?
       I've loved you when you have yet to love your self,
           but I'm the one with the busted mouth.
             Having to feel the back of your hand,
                makes you even less of a man! 
          I want to see you hit a man in that same way,
         the way you hit and treat me every day!
   It's not going to be easy having to feel the way I do,
     when he takes your man hood from you!
      You make me regret ever ****en with you!
        Then you can come walk a mile in my shoes,
           when he straight *****es you!
      Remember revenge live's in us all,
      and I can't wait for the day to see you fall.
      Don't worry because you weep what you sow.
              What you do in the past,
        alway's come back to haunt your ass!
         If you don't want to get hit on,
          I advise you don't hit on me!
     Because someone is alway's bigger and badder,
               that you just can't beat! 
  If you a real man you'll step to a man in the street's,
   and stop hitting women you already know you can beat.
     You know deep down your a bigger ***** then me,
               So step to a real man,
            and feel the heat of defeat!

Bless it be Thee!

May 27, 2010

Bless it be Thee!

Bless it be Thee!
Truly, I love you.
My whole my new.
My heart your key!

Loose lips and free.
Realistically, I knew!
You are far and few.
I can justly let it be.

You know, it is Gemini’s Full Moon tonight,
The Universe is waking up figuring us all out.
Point me out as a random beam of Moonlight,
I am engulfing and enriching charts in route.

Swiftly suited, I stand in my place!
Bless it be it to Thee! A closed case!

Pricked

Your  love pricks me like a rose each thorn grows but no one knows Your so full of 
it as it shows so carry on now go on, go. I'm fed up with the phony and  i'm 
through with the tears, you couldn't pay me all your money to make up for those 
years. Someone help me I feel faint how could I think he was such a saint and 
worst of all I let me fall into a spiral down below. A magic called love carried 
by the dove of someone I use to know.

If It Wasn't For You

If it wasn’t for your eyes
I would have nothing to gaze upon,
If it wasn’t for your lips
I would have nothing to place mine on.
If it wasn’t for your hair
I would have nothing to stroke,
Because of your understandings
I have reasons to cope.
If it wasn’t for your hands 
I would have nothing to reach out to,
If it wasn’t for your smile
Each of my days would be blue.
If it wasn’t for your arms
I would know no caress,
Not the heat from another
While touching chest to chest.
If it wasn’t for you
What would I do,
I truly haven't the slightest clue.

What People Were and What People Are

People were
Many things.
Strange or not

People were
Different and
Odd and fun.

People were
Monsters but…
That’s not all

People were
And still are
Strange and odd.

People are
People. For
life is life. 

Yet not.
Not is lies.
Truth seeps from

Every mouth
Lies, lies, lies
Move, move, move

But somehow
Lies prevail.
Lies are life.

Lies are death.
Lies are homes.
Lies are pain.

Lies are truth.
Yet somehow.
Truth prevails.

Truth is life.
Truth is death.
Truth is home.

Truth is pain.
Truth is lie.
Truth is that.

Lies will die.
Lies will cease.
Nevermore.

Truth will live.
Truth will be.
Forever.

DEFINING LOVE

Love is real and true, especially when it finds you...
You better know just what to do.
Love is a gift from God.
Try it trust me it is not hard.
Not a second thought.
It is like a webbed trap now you caught
Love comes once in a blue moon.
I really hope it comes to you soon.
You should appreciate it's eternal blessing.
Love brings you total happiness.
There is no time to second guess.
Love is life’s reward a worthy quest.
Real love is all that you dream.
So never settle for anything 
Being in love is a serious thing.
It is defined by understanding and communication.
Like a verb it is compelled by action.
I might bring smiles to fill your days,
To keep you in my heart to God I pray.
As I say these words to fill your heart.
I love you so much I hope we never will grow apart.

Power of Your Love

To a Bride and Groom

You have the power
over my love
to make my day rain or shine
it all began the day you asked me
"to be mine" and I wrote my name
in blood, on your hearts
dotted line
the power of my love
to fuel what feeds within me
pounce on me as a tiger
humble me as a mouse
your strength envelopes me
as if standing in an unbreakable
glass house
you have the power
over my stare, as you glare
into my inner spirits soul
those who dare to try to divide
I heed them to beware
the power you have over my love
leaves me content, without a care
floating together, we share, in
true loves enchanting bliss
what started years ago, with a friendly
hug, is reincarnated within every
new days kiss

Lost into a deep black hole

I was trapped
and bemused
feeling sad
and confused
a subatomic particle
lost into a deep black hole
and suddenly
you stuck in your magic telescope
and I opened up
like a flower
I shot out like a periscope
a mystical kaleidoscope
like a solar flare 
without a care
my heart exploded into a supernova
and then, 
I woke up in your constellation
a phantasmagorical revelation
so ecstatic
and divine
orgasmic 
and sublime
I'm staying here forever, 
until the end of time.

If Only

If I could spend my whole life with you,
It will only be a dream, because no such thing is true.
If no one open's their heart all the way through.
       How can I ever really give my heart to you? 
If I did you wouldn't have felt the pain you do.
Therefor no need to say sorry,
we just say it, because we know it's not true.
We say it just to get you through,
to have, to behold, the pain I gave you!
If  you should ever feel like this is your last breath,
to love, is to lay to rest.
It can feel worse than any death.
A women romancer is truly the best!
I've sacrifice nothing making you feel like you do,
but you have to learn to give credit, to where credit is due! 
Stimulating of the heart, Is to know where to start.
         My devotion is to myself,
I have to love me, before loving any one else
I'm done with the burden of pain, to have me, it's to what you'll gain.
To walk beside me, to never deny me. To love me, is to live as one.
For you can now, feel just where I come from.
To pave a new way, to this unacquainted highway.
         Intimacy is thee only thing I could offer to you.
For you could only be mine, no other friend will do.
To have you all to myself, is to deprive,
from liberty, to imprison, to confine to me. To surrender your heart,
thorough thick and, thin. To never let any other lover in,
to whom I'm your only friend, from the start till thee very end.
         To vow to never give away your heart, if we do break apart.
If I shall ever feel the love you do for me, I promise to love you for eternity!
To never have to say I'm sorry, for the love I'll feel for you.
For I could never put you through!
To  have a good women by your side, is to tell the truth, even if it make's me cry.
That's what it will take for you can be a real man.
To stand tall, to walk with pride, for a real man shouldn't have to lie.
If it should ever feel like it's way to hard, and we took this new found love way to far...
           Reminiscence of that day,
that I began to play thee O' Jays, when I used to be your girl,
till you opened my eyes to this cruel world.
I would like to start all over again, can you change my mind, to just go back in time.
For to truly love someone, is to let them free. 
To find each other again, it was truly meant to be!
To say this is true love, shall ever be a mystery.
For there's no paradise, in this so called world we call life.
     Until thee very day you make me your wife!

Closer to You

I need what I thirst for
Her presence fulfills me
Quenches what I yearn for
She's with me all the time
I keep her on my mind
It's not enough; I need more.
Let my eyes engulf you,
Or make me blind;
My vision can't consume
Another flower
That isn't at full bloom.
And I do mean to sound rude
When I say,
There isn't a shape
With the same symmetry as you 
You laugh,
Am I a jester at heart
Silently playing a fool
Or do my demands bring a smile
And by inches,
bring me closer to you.

Run Into Love

You make me smile even when the sad songs come on.
You make me laugh with every chance you get.
You don't even have to be here for me to fall for you.
I've played the backseat for too long.
Maybe now it's time to run;
Time to run into love.
What do we have to lost?
This is only life once.
We are only young once.
And I believe I am starting to fall for you.
What do we have to lose?
Let's dive in together,
Holding hands,
Into the unknown.

China sets

Oh, Let’s get married in a white chapel
sip coffee, listen to blues 
 and read morning’s headlines. 

Let’s get married in white chapel
Live in a brick house, build a picket fence
 and watch the good neighbors stroll by 

Cause he’s something to look at
Can pick him out from bustling restaurant
  just by his gait

Cause he’s something to look at
got a wide mouth, gaping grin 
 always fashionably late. 

When he’s nervous, 
his posture is fleeting. 
it’s unfitting, 
because he’s got the world together. 

When he’s nervous, 
his words 
string together like magnets 
across a refrigerator door. 

But then-
I’ll say something ‘bout my world views
and you’ll suddenly deliver the quickest line 
and I’m laughing
finally i’m light 

Oh, Let’s get married in a white chapel
sip coffee, listen to blues 
 and read morning’s headlines. 

Let’s get married in white chapel
Live in a brick house, build a picket fence
 and watch the good, good neighbors stroll by

L O M L Always

The thought of her smiling gave me faith
From when we were little we bathe
My mother and her mother is best friends
They both took care of us and gifts they send
We pulled each others hair
And she was always quick to dare
When I smiled at her she knew it was no good
She learned to pull me up and she understood
I just wanted her attention and that she gave
She knew it in her heart love was my slave
From when we were a child with full of energy I had my way
She was the one who was my guide and she did not push me away
When I saw her cry one day and her eyes was so sad
I gave her a flower and I smiled at her and made her glad
When some one special leaves her heart
I sat by her and never wanted to depart
She is the love of my life always
She is the one who gave me my hope through out my days
So I gave her my heart and love from within
And I did not make it thin
I stood by her side since I was a child
I gave her my support when we were wild
She knew who I was and I let her go the distance
I did not hate her or give her resistance
My mother and her mother are great friends and their virtue will never end
Because of their love they both trusted us to live our ways to transcend
So my childhood friend was my best friend, and now my wife
She new it from the start that we part of each others life

Lea

What happened to us? Did it just take one night?
How does a beautiful friendship turn into mistrust and fights?
Everyone was against us. Did our love make us blind?
We seemed to be winning the race, and now we're so far behind.
I love you. I love you! Me and you, It's my life.
If money didn't matter, I would make you my wife.
Nothing makes me happier then to see a smile on your face.
I love your style, your car, your taste, and your place.
It's home to me, baby. You invited me into your world.
My angel, my treasure, my dream, and my girl.
The one I held close at night and hung out with all day.
The one I fought for her rights, the one who took my breath away.
We've had our ups, we've had our downs, and if this you happen to read,
I want you to know that I love you. Lea, it's you that I need!

Something Like You

Something like a love song
Crossed my mind,
Sang to my soul,
Made my heart fly.

Something like a daydream
Drove me wild
Had me on cloud nine
Free like a child.

Something like a miracle
Hit me hard
Had me jumping and skipping.
I was touching the stars.

Something like a love story
Took my by surprise
Feeling like I won the lotto
Gave me butterflies.

Something like a love song
Played softly to my heart beat
Its all your fault
And I'm swept off my feet.

Long Focus Lens

I knew, that if you knew that I was watching
Your thoughts of me would never be the same
The sexual approach as you hugs and 
caresses her silicone enchancers
         So tightly,
You feast upon her, sweetness 
That moaning sound, the bulging purple blood;
       Surges in your veins 

You close your eyes, and you sigh “Oh my God”
words, I never heard like that before
You seem at ease with the whore

Surrendered to my Love

I searched for you night and day,
My lungs gave out and breath gave way.
It was endless in miles and vast in count.
 
The treasures in measure are heavy in amount.
Piece by piece I seek to find,
Gathering myself with a soul and mind!
 
I prayed for you day and night,
My heart gave way and my feelings gave out.
I was surrendered to my love without a doubt!

An End to Aloneness

In my life I often feel I am alone; alone in my thoughts, alone in my musings, alone in my day-to-day movements and unsatisfying activities. I move like a ghost through hallways and down sidewalks, unnoticed and, at times, gratefully so. 
I do not wish to be eternally alone. I long for togetherness. But despite this desire for a real connection, I find myself regularly retreating from that temperamental beast that is human interaction. 

“Come on now, sweetheart. Don’t lower your head. Don’t look away. Look up! Smile at someone! No! Don’t go back into your bedroom. Don’t lock the door! Why are you doing this?” my brain will plea. 

I can’t help myself. Aloneness is comfortable. In being alone, I don’t have to worry about anyone but myself. I don’t have to please anyone else. I can think anything I want, wear anything I want, listen to anything I want, and laugh at anything I want. 

And still there remains that nagging desire to be loved and wanted and needed by somebody. I do not know the feeling of being truly desired. I do not know what it is like for someone to crave my company, my smile, my kiss, or my touch. 

                                                                              But I would like to…

I cannot make someone love me or like me or want me in some primal way. It may hurt, but I cannot make that handsome boy want to hold my hand or brush my hair back behind my ear. I can only struggle on. I can only work within myself. I can only try every God damn day to hold my head up, keep my eyes fixed ahead, a give the world the best smile I have. I and I alone can bring myself out of the safety of my bedroom and into the bright world that lies beyond that locked door. 
	
I often find myself alone with nothing more than my thoughts and the ever-strong glow of a computer screen. But no longer will aloneness be the constant in my life. It is true that never having known the caress of a man’s hand on my thigh doesn't make me any less of a woman, but I fear that if I stay confined within myself much longer I will begin to become less of a human. A flower cannot grow if it retracts its leaves and petals every time it feels the warmth of the sun or the kiss of a gentle spring rain.  
	
And I want to grow. I want to grow so tall and blossom so big and beautifully that every place on earth is touched by my shadow at some point in the day. And I will grow. I will push myself and share myself with the world, and finally
							                                 finally
								                                   finally
know the closeness and comfort of love and honest, unabashed companionship.

Be Still and Know that I am God

Be still and know that I am God

Be still and know that I am God
A God that can deliver
And give you Joy like a river

Be still and know that I am God
With conviction, he will let you know
Right from wrong
And in your heart God will
Give you a new song 

Be still and know that I am God
With my voice, I will Praise God in advance
I know that he will give me a second chance

Be still and know that I am God
In Psalms 23, the Bible says, The Lord is my Shepard 
With God I have a track record

Be still and know that I am God
The Bible says to rebuke the devil and he will flee
Pray that God will give you
Discernment to see

Be still and know that I am God
The Lord gave you the Power
To cast the devil out
Lift up your hands, and Praise
The Lord with a shout

Be still and know that I am God

ME

Me …. 
By Anoush Harrison-Jackson

What’s the matter with ME?
Better yet, what’s the matter with YOU?
I am comfortable with ME---------

My eloquence, my ethnicity, my social demeanour,
My laughter, my insight, my shortcomings,
My shape, my grace, my pride,
My beliefs, my values, my devotion to my CREATOR
These are the things that COMPOSE me

So what’s the matter with ME?
Better yet, what’s the matter with YOU?
Don’t try to dilute or even defile me with your
Perceptions of how I should be………
Don’t try to ridicule or belittle my efforts
In a bid to confine me to where you think I should be— “my place”
Or “my fate” in the society (so-ci-ety)
So what’s the matter with ME?
Better yet, what’s the matter with YOU?
I am who I am
I’m, simply put, just ME!
Who are you?

Leave love to the brave

LOVE shoves us into glistening meadows,
Of unimaginable warmth, where ecstasy glows
LOVE also leads us to teary graves,
Of uncontainable darkness, where pain enslaves
So, teenage girls trotting over,
To find the four leaf clover
I say, leave love to the absolute brave
‘cuz, It’s more than just a fluttering rave!

I like your love

I like your love
It's pure, it's innocent
and I don't think I've seen this before

You replenish my reserves before it's necessary 
you lift my wings up and 
make me superior to my adversary 
Creatively providing the exact amount of 
what I need to go another day
I like your love
and for as long as you'll have me I'll stay

You make me comfortable in my space
What she share cannot be replaced
with any other type of love
be it artificial or tainted or lustfully blatant 
Those illusions don't exist because
we found this love and we claimed it

I cherish those nights when I scratch your head
When you sit between my thighs and I twist your dreads
We become an us that is so pure
that the spring waters question the purity of it's source
I like your love - it's a divine force

Do Unto Others As You Would Have Them Do Unto You


Do Unto Others As You Would Have Them Do Unto You…

I have many times read in the Bible, “the golden rule.”
“Do unto others as you’d have them do unto you!”

I often wonder if many people 
really take this to heart.
This is where Christ’ love in action really starts!

Just think if we treat others the way
 we want to be treated.
Many relations would certainly 
be healed and completed!!

If we were to speak kindness the way 
we want to receive it.
Others would see Christ’ love in us… 
 And would believe it!

If we were serious about seeking 
a Godly way of living.
We’d see much more of Christ’
 love and forgiving!

The challenge is to simply do what
 our Lord is wishin
Applying “the golden rule”
must be our mission!

Thanks be to God for the way 
he treats us all the same!
May we humbly serve others
 in Christ’ name!

Giving to others the way we want to

If I Could Fly

If I could fly, where in the world would I possibly go?
Up and away my wings would carry me,
My destination not known!
If I could fly, I’d capture all of the Sun’s rays.
Up and away!
What a sight to see with such a grand milestone!
If I could fly, 
I would always look below.
Down and deep!
My eyes focused only on you.
My journey’s still unknown.
If I could fly, I’d stay on top with memories buried to keep.
Down and deep!
What an experience just to fly through!
Such a waste without you!

If I could fly, I would soar with my best perfection.
Soaring with pride!
My life achieved.
My destination excluding restrictions!
If I could fly, I’d forever remember this glide.
Soaring with pride!
What a thought to preconceive.
Such bright reflections!
If I could fly where in the world would I possibly go?
Up and away I would go only with you.
My destination remaining incognito!
If I could fly, I’d want to stay up and away!
What an incredible zone just to pass through!
Such a magnificent plateau!
If I could fly, I’d fly only for you!

The Soft Spot----in my wicked heart----

You are my princess, my fairy tail, your my future queen.
You are the only thing in my future from what I have seen.
You are royality to me, and I litterally have the blood of kings.
I would even set you up in a real castle if you wanted it to be your dwellings.

I love you/everything about you, the pleasure and peace you bring,
how my heart hurts when i know you must go, how it uplifts when my phone begins to ring.
You are my morning thought, and my fading dream.
For you I would commit an onslaught, without you I come apart at the seams.

You are a petal, from a rose, 
A sexy model, striking a pose.
My eyes for you never depart, my lust for you always grows.
I would never give you up. You are the one I love and chose.

You are so beautiful, in my eyes you are jewels, you are gold.
I need you, in my heart and in my arms, you I would forever hold.
I want to confess your love, shout it from roof tops, ever so bold.
You are the one I want, to grow deeper in love with, as we get old.

This is for you Dana~Lynn,
For you I would commit every sin.
I would do it with a smile, a smirk, or a evil grin.
Let me be your yang, and I want you to be my yin.
Our love is just at the start, and yet I feel it has always been.
I would cliff dive for you, even throw in a double backspin
You are my high, you are my drug, with you I feel like I drank a bottle of Gin.
It is the vodoo that you do so well that conjurred me to be your evil jinn.

I love you Dana-Lynn Smith. Forever yours, Jesse Devile.

:sigh of relief:

Words spoken in silence,

[When language does not suffice]

Like a look or a tear, although concise

Can echo a lifetime in your ear,

Much louder than those you can hear.

We'll be

We'll be forever building gold mines
from scrap metal and taking
recycled energy to cosmic levels
through third eye

We'll go un-noticed until the heavens turn 
or if our chakras are not aligned 
constantly diverting negative thoughts 
through our meditative lights

We'll build a sandcastle from determination
and live life on the edge,
fulfilling divine order and witnessing creation,
living in the now and staying ahead

We'll tip the earth off it's axis
and trick subconscious mind states into submission
You can catch us in the wind transcending counter reactions
Bi-passing illusions of circumstances 

We'll have an abundance of the maximum
Enough love energy for all who attract our path
We'll be the ones in the light
asking for nothing in return but peace
at last

Can You Be Mine

She's marking my direction,
It's her that I see,
And there's nothing I can say or do,
She's struting down the street,
With fire in her feet,
And I'm thinking I should make a move,

No steps I heard,
She glides like a bird,
And her eyes sparked a perfect blue,
Her voice blew like the trees,
I fell to my knees,
As she said how do you do,

(chorus): 2x
I said, can you be mine,
Can you be mine,
I said, Can you be mine,
Love me forever and more,

Her eyes opened wide,
As though she was surprised,
She didn't know what to say,
She grabbed a pen and wrote down her number,
Before I asked her for her name,
She said her name was Lisa,
I said so nice to meet ya,
This girl, was playin heard to get,

I said I know you've been hurt in the past,
But you won't be hurt this time,
Her hair was so soft and beautiful,
So I told her not to pay a dime,

(Chorus): 3x

(Bridge)
Talking:
(I love the way you movin ya body, baby)
(I got so excited, baby)
(That's the way, you got me, you got me)

Long Live Love

A toss of the head
A flick of her hair
The wave of her hand
As her beauty did flare
 
Her bountiful step
The spring in her stride
Her laugh as we waked 
Hand in hand through the tide
 
Her mouth with its smile
As we wrote in the sand
Her cries of frustration
As sea coated the land
 
Those little I love yous
Meant so much back then
That on annual vacations
We repeat them again
 
For least we forget 
In the daily ado
Our marrital vows
Mean forever I do

Secret love

I’m not gona get all wordy on you
I’m not gona do look at stuff and flowers on you.

I’m not gona sing in the rain and hold hands wive you
I’m not gona whisper stuff and get you fings like rings.

I’m not gona tell you wot you should take for granted
I’m not gona get all feeley and touchy and stuff.

I’m not I’m not I’m not
I sharnt I won’t and you can’t make me.

There that’s told you no woman’s gona snap or break me
I’m hard I’m tough no woman’s gona mould or shape me.

There you got your poem end of story
Show this to your friends and let them ignore me.

Get it got it feel the cold
Now along this line you should fold-------
 
Below this line stays below
I’ve a reputation to up hold.

Gossamer bumble bees and silken thread 
Hold these thoughts inside your head.

Deep sun sinks into a bubbling sea
Bare feet in hot sand you and me.

Everything I said above
I reverse undo and do with love.

Fold again to hide the meaning 
See my words to you in the Sistines ceiling.

Let no man brake asunder 
What’s been sealed by Thor and bound by thunder.

You have no idea how your perfume confuses me
From the way that you walk to the way you drink herbal tea.

Now I’m sorry for getting all wordy on you
But in my confusion I didn't know what else to do.

Signed sealed and delivered with lightning
My feelings for you are so strong it’s frightening.

Lose Control

Let’s lose control
Let’s entice the soul,
With champagne swishes
Chilled in iced bowls.
From your head to your toes
Every nerve will explode, 
Every body sensation
I’ve cracked nature’s code.
It’s not on paper 
It’s what your face shows;
It tells me go fast
Then it tells me go slow,
Then blows my mind
Showing Lose control.
All exposed
The most radiant glow,
The most beautifulness thing 
Ever let go.
Lose control
Feel safe…there’s no foes,
Only me…Let go…
Lover Lose Control.

~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

Frozen


Psychedelic spotlights
cast by busy cars,
Drowned by white noise
of the city that was,
Stole a gaze into his glistening eyes
Got sucked in, got stuck in a trance


With his hands sweeping up my waist
Lights dim, noise haze,
His breath linger, nose graze,
A slight bow, and a tippy toe
Together, our lips freeze..
translate into touch a squeeze
Taking a deep breath,
Our eyes fall.. my mind stalls

 Isnt it beautiful how
The world seize to survive
Maybe a little wheel.
Dazed in a kiss,
Breathe synchronize
Heart beats entice

To feel him in your space
To share everything of the moment
Feels like nothing
Nothing, but life,nothing, but love!

My love for you

Do you ever feel like...
You have made the wrong choise?
You...are hurting someone...that...you love...
I feel like that everyday...when I see them...
I had him all to myself...and...I took him for granted...
And now all he does is let her hurt him...over...and over...
I would never do that...again...I already went through it once...
But she does it over again everyday...I dont see how...
How she could do that and still breathe...
I love him so much it hurts...hurts to breathe sometimes...
I feel like Im...broken...in half...
The one half says, "forget him..."
The other one says, "steal him away..."
I try to listen to the one who says forget him...
But I usually hear the one that wants me to steal him...
Cuz he is the one I am supposed to be with...
I might be 14...but I know...
I know that I'm in love with him...
That he loves me
That we are supposed to be together...
I also know...I will die before she hurts him again...
Even if I die trying to stop it...
Let's just hope that it doesn't come down to that...

ANSWER TO MY DREAMS

Comforter when I am lonely, that's what you did..
Lifter of my head, you have encouraged me..
ears to listen, that's what you say..
walk to remeMber, we have shared...

through thick and thin, we try to understand..
sometimes hard to accept but ready I am to comprehand..
don't worry, you didn't offend..
however, there's a need to speak and defend..

all of us undergoing obstacles..
harder we must strive to tackle..
we cry and leave a chuckle..
it's but alright, no ache in the ankle..

we may never know what's in there..
be whole; be broken or be restore..
however, who and how one knows?
You could be the answer to my dreams..

My sarrows to day did die
You have freed me from the past

So I give you my heart as a keep sake
To hold, love and not break
I trust you to be there

You are a strong man who understands
Who I am and still holds my hand
Your touch is warm and kiss so true
I know I can trust you
You wont use me and leave
You know I wear my life on my sleave
I am here for you and you are there for me
My sweet sweet man how can it be
I never thought Love was real
But I can't stop how I feel 
So tangled hearts sore and fly
With you only tears of joy will I cry

How to Invest in your Valentine Hours ?

How to Invest in your Valentine Hours ?


Daisies are Stubby,
Daffodills have a Spout,
Watch out for Cupid,
For He's Sure to be Out.

Poppies are Red,
Forget-Me-Nots are Blue,
Be Sure to get Flowers,
For your Little Missy-Sue.

Marigolds are Short,
While Sunflowers are High,
Chocolates are Sweet,
Prepare for your Cutie-pie.

Pink Pansies with Petals so Soft,
Lily of the Valleys that Smell so Sweet,
This Time and Day you Must Share,
Dinner on the Town will Be a Nice Treat.

Some Flowers like to Climb,
While many Others Seem to Crawl,
A Smile - Tight Hug with a Gentle Kiss,
Realizing your Efforts were Worth it ALL !

Lu 12:27 Consider the lilies how they grow: they toil not, they spin not; and yet I say unto 
you, that Solomon in all his glory was not arrayed like one of these.

My Family and Me

It's amazing how quick things can change.
First your running with the kings, and then you're knocked out of range.
It's strange. I used to worry and stress over friends.
Now I've grown to be a man. Maybe know a few of them.
All that time I could of studied. Did better in school.
Got a job and made it big. Maybe now I'd be cool.
Who's the fool? Now who's the bull? I know that's not me on the top.
Life is always making turns weather you like it or not.
The past will always be the past. My glory days may seem gone.
But, now its time to start a new.The stories keep coming on.
I've got a new girl. She means the world to me.
She keeps me warm at night, my best friend, my new dream.
Since my car accident, still got a limp on one side.
Still working with my memory, still need a friend who can drive.
I love to Karaoke. I get noticed in bars.
My mom's always there to catch me. Tom's working with my mom's cars.
My sister's in the Army, my niece is a big part of my life,
Friend Zach keeps assholes off me, and God is my wife.
AJ's always there to help, Brian is my LOST bud,
Mary's out of school, Lil cousin, Hunter's a stud.
Grandpa still is my idol, JT is still the music man .
The Adam's still can party. Chris, living good on the sand.
I may only use one hand, but I plan to be the best.
At all I do in life, cause there's not that much time left.
The blood test that I took says Landon is mine.
I hope this all works out fine in time and help to make my son's life shine.
JC who's down in Georiga, my heart is screaming for you.
I hope that you recover well. It can't be worse then what I went through.
Uncle Jimmy where you at? Where's Matt, Corie, and Pete?
I know you all are doing good. Serviolo's are a hard team to beat.
How's the rest of the family? I love and miss you all!
I hope you all are standing tall and I pray we never fall.
These last words that I say, I say only to you.
We've got the best family in the world and you know I LOVE YOU!

My last dying breath

With my last dying breath, I will whisper your name. As my life slips away slowly, so does this pain. 
   Your name passes my lips, and releases it's grip. No more need to hold on, to this broken love trip. 
   Let me die all alone, you're too cold to come home. Now here in this light, your true colors have shown. 
   I held on for so long, said I'll never let go. But I've found peace in my soul, as my heart starts to slow. 
   Now burry me deep, in my own silent tomb. So heaven can take me, into it's uplifting womb. 
   I'll look down from the sky, as you struggle through life. And quietly pray, you get through all this strife. 
   At days end your alone, in your own bed of lies. And no one will hear, when your heart breaks and cries. 
   But  if you say you can fake it, 'til you finally make it. Then my life's in your hands, so feel free to take it. 

   For this life's not a game, we can play with no shame. It's a legend and story, that we leave with our name. 
   I'll go down in the books, as a man of good deeds. You'll go down with the world, suffocated in greed. 
   Now I'll spread my great wings, I'll look up and I'll fly. Leaving my last written passage, where I bid you good bye...

Pleasure Is

Pleasure is.
So sweet the seasons sounds,
That makes for those summer days.
Skies make for a back drop of hues of blue,
Sweet mowing grass now sheared as hay.

Upon my face the beads of perspiration,
As I wipe my fevered brow.
The days now long as I swing forth the scythe,
High above the sun beats down.

A shout breaks my concentration,
For it is Mary who is my love.
Under a large oak tree she shelters,
Truly a pure vision from above.

For with her a wicker basket,
Its contents now lay out before.
She beckons me come forward,
Asl my senses cry out for more.

In her tender arms my head gently lies,
Beneath a canopy of green.
 Dappled sun light highlights her flowing hair,
For the world id trade, for these moments gleaned.

Emotional Hole

I did not find myself to be so important
So I ask my friends do I seem distant?
When I ask the question I had received an answer, Yes
So I think that made it clear that I had been not the best
I am a friend of a friend that talks so many things
That friend talks to much it is insane and insanity it brings
I do care, about my friends they are all good people
They tend to stand on their high steeple 
Today I find myself not so aware
Disbanding my fear of regret and care
Walking many different paths I see that I have found holes
It is the path that people choose to use to fuel their rage with coals
Coals are partially burnt wood or fossils a piece of fuel
It is the source of burden and fire a rage of emotions that stands cruel
It can be warm and caring, but it also can be baring
I just start to feel so low, below the ground I keep on staring
I reach for my friends so many times I feel so ignorant at times
Just once I feel I should not rely on them when feeling I can not find 
I dig my hole deeper and I can not climb out
For some reason I am just full of doubt
I care about so many things and what I have is confusion
One person should be all I should think about to get out of that illusion
My battle in my heart and mind is not at all so pleasant
I feel so alone in an island that is shaped like a crescent
My emotions is like coinciding with a diameter of the semicircle
Not a full emotion that is complete like a circle
My feelings is circular full of incomplete thoughts, so much deeper
I feel it will wake up my evil half a evil soul that is a sleeper
What question should I ask myself? to believe that I am not so alone
As I feel like a person who is deteriorating to the bone
I ask my friends the same question once again
I figure I should do it, to know what kind of feelings I should end
So many thoughts that come out of my feeling
I feel like my friends take, an emotional trauma of stealing
They ask me questions and I answer theirs
But when I need mine answered I feel burning inside like a flare
Are they even friends when they do not take me serious in anyway
Just put me in my hole cause I feel nothing in their will be getting in my way
It's just so simple to answer someones problem
I answer friends with beauty of a rose, but when they answer mine I get the stem
I know the stem is very important in life, with out it how can a rose be a rose
With a hole to put the root and stem in how can it grow
The words we speak I guess is like all natural things we reap and sow

The Woman

She is a woman worthy of admiration
A woman of independence and strength
A woman like a goddess with her own constellation
A woman with intelligence at great length.

She is a woman with great compassion and love
A woman with a heart bigger than her smile
A woman who gives you a since of peace like a dove
A woman who’s loyalty and trust stretches farther than the Nile.

She is a woman of great beauty to desire
A woman you’ll feel blessed just being in her presence
A woman who’s passion burns like fire
A woman who will addict you to her essence.

I speak of the woman to which I can’t live without
The woman who I can’t stop thinking of
The woman to whom I would like to shout
You are the only woman that I will love!!!

Teardrops of sorrow

Teardrops of sorrow, stream down her face. As she thinks of tomorrow, and feels out of place.
 
Lies and infidelity, clouding her thoughts. She knows they were weaknesses, she could have fought.
 
As the one that she loved, slips slowly away. She lies to herself, saying she'll be okay.
 
Living her life, cold day after day. She'll one day break down, and quietly pray.
 
"Help me dear father, in heaven above. Help me be strong, and teach me to love. "
 
"Show me my worth, and my light that's inside. Give me my courage, and rebuild my pride. "

A hollow dark hole, sits in place of her heart. Cause her values and morals, have all fall'n apart.
 
What once was a sweet, and innocent girl. Is now lost and lonely, consumed by this world.
 
She'd sacrifice anything, just to fit in. Sacrifice everything, and give in to sin.
 
Loved ones may forgive her, but they'll never forget. She's strayed far from her path, but they won't give up yet.
 
Holding her hand, they'll help her get through. But it won't change the fact, that she was untrue.

She damaged the heart, of a very good man. Did things that he, just can't understand. 

Now I have no doubt, she loved him to death. But love's just a word, mumbled under our breath. 

For actions have always, spoke louder than words. And hate is the sound, most commonly heard. 

If you don't like the feelings, expressed in these lines. Then cover your ears, and cover your eyes. 

For a bitter cold boy, wrote down this letter. But he wrote it to say, that he's doing better.

Lying awake, in the mid of the night. He smiles and says, "I'm doing alright. "

Floating away, on an ocean of memories. He piles up the sand, to block off his enemies.

Moving along, he hopes she's okay. But he won't let the thoughts of her, get in his way. 

Lying awake, likely miles apart. They each fall asleep, with a hand on their heart. 

For life is a Story, often painful to tell. But sleep sweet tonight, for they're both doing well.

                                     it's easy as one two three
                                     candidly smile
                                     tip your hats
                                     look both ways
                                     launch arms outward
                                     and pull or push  that's it

I'll Be There

I'll Be There... By: Brandon Lucas 

I call out your name,
but you can''t hear me.
I reach out to touch you,
and you are nowhere near me.
I''ve tried and tried
and feel I''ve failed
and done by best
to no avail.
Look in my eyes
and tell me you need me.
I''ll give you my hand
and let you lead me...
to anywhere I don''t care.
As long as you love me
I''ll be there.

Glow

Stars shine brightly above me as I look up at the glowing full moon.
A cool breeze is blowing and
A soft music seems to play in the air around me as
I think of what life has given me.

This gift is more than I could have brought myself to ask for.
For the longest time I've been content to be there for others
Ignoring the fact that as I helped my friends find happiness, I have been alone.
Now I find that Life has given me a gift. A thing so precious that never again could I go
through life without it.

Life has given me you.
You, Suki, have become my life force. The very thing that keeps me going.
I love you with everything I have. Granted, it isn't much, but I promise you that it wont
be missed. I'll love you enough to make up for the materialistic things that I don't have.

The moon blurs as tears fill my eyes and I start glowing as bright as the shining full
moon above me and
I find that the music I hear around me that is so heartbreaking-ly beautiful isn't in the air.
It's inside me.
 
I never have to be alone again.
Never do I have to bottle things up for the sake of other people because I know I have
someone who wants nothing more than to have me cry on his shoulder.
I love him
And to the very core of my being I know he loves me.

Life has given me something I never dared to let myself dream of having.

Life has given me Suki.

Black Love

  
                 Black LOVE

             My head rested
on the pillow of her smooth skin.
She opened the curtains of her being,
My hands slip into indulgence while 
 they explored her expansive dark skin.
With half words she whispered moans,
 followed by screams of passion.
With her shadow I bounded, as she 
swarmed waters of our endless longing passed.

Little Red

Full Moon Brimming 
On A Hungry Wolf
Fire still burning 
Words are not enough

Red Riding Hood,
You stopped me where i stood.
The basket you held, looked so good,
I enticed...And you fell... 

In the woods... safe and sound
We could not believe what we had found
Me in denim... and you it lace

We understood, each other so very well
Full moon brimming over with light
Gazing into the eyes of the other

The twin to me, I did see, in You.
Be careful with my heart, my love.

My running shoes are unlaced for now,
So lean back and enjoy the ride.
Embrace all the laughter, our lives allow.

For the Love of Winter

And I can smell the windswept pine
Warmly holding hands, yours in mine
We move against the coming night
Our aching bodies drawing the line

Through the snow we lightly play
Laughing madly, in love we stay
Back to our cabin of logs and love
As the sun dwindles to a single ray

Bathed in firelight, glistened in sweat
We roll and writhe and love and yet
We two stripped and licked by flame
Fuelled by amore and desirous inset

These presents we give each our hearts
Bound together we lay upon fiery hearth
As winters coat enwraps this self bounty
We shall never be alone or torn apart

Bestfriend till the end

I sit all alone thinking of you
and all the things we've both been through
You are my very best friend
and I know you'll be there until the end 

Your shoulder to cry on is now gone
who will be there when something is wrong
When times are tough you've always been there
It shows me just how much you care 

Although lifes challeges have brought us separate ways
you're in my heart till my final days
Nothing can make a person see
how special a person you are to me 

I dreamed of a best friend just like you
and finally my dream came true
Nothing else could ever fulfill
everything you're friendship will 

You understand a side of me 
that no one else could ever see
You know whats wrong before i cry
but if I do, you always know why 

A friend like you is hard to find
you put my problems all behind
You were there when no one cared 
the best times were the ones we shared 

We've been together through good and bad
you made me laugh even when I was sad
And no one else could ever be
as good of a friend you are to me
 
But now until the very end
you'll always be my special best friend.

Gods Myrical

Born into a life of hatred and abuse, 
Growing up I was so confused.
I didn't know what I was doing with myself,
I was being the best I can be at BAD by myself.

Believe me I was really good at it too,
I could sell crack to a priest, and believe me that's true.
I could lie my self out of any situation,
Without worries or any frustration.

But than it hit me like a ton of bricks,
A voice said if I wouldn't change I would burn in hell like sticks.
If I was not to change my act in time, I would be in a cradle, 
My life would be anything but perfect, it would be fatal. 

I trusted that voice and begone to change,
It was like opening a new book in life, it was strange.
Now side by side with God, I have nothing to fear,
My life is white as snow and all so clear.

a spec on a screen

i attempt to take a breath as structure slips away,
two lips and a whisper changed a universe today,

patterns contort and minds tilt ajar,
my soul is dumbfounded in sight of this art,


head in the clouds, where home isn't far,
seems ages away, knee deep in the stars,

i know not, the language,
i can not define,
but i know that its coming,
it's growing, it's mine.

The One

Simply put she takes my breath
From the stars at night
Up in the sky as I look into her eyes
I swim inside her soul

Her book I've read, lost for words
That smile is a novel I cant put down
Pulling me in time and time again
I've finely found my feather

Missing

Walking around the graveyard
Untaggling his hands from the pocket in his jacket
its clear in his head that he's screaming for something
that something is missing within his heart

Taking off his hat as he sits it on her grave
Pulling out a piece of paper
The death certificate that her name was signed on
a tear falling from his cheek 
he reaches down to pick up the flower he laid there before

crumples at his touch
sitting down the piece of paper
he asked her
how can i love?
when the one i want is not here?

tears fall from his eyes unto the paper 
he lights a candle
sits it by her tombstone

He lays down beside her
listening to the wind
hoping to hear her voice
something he longed for
something that he was missing

he falls asleep
holding the stem of the rose that crumpled before
The pedals fly away with the wind
and the flame of the candle burns out
the rain starts to fall

He lays with his eyes closed
He goes back in time
The rose pedals fall back unto the stem
The paper flies back into his pocket

He walks back into town
Back into the house he was at before
Back at her funeral
to the hospital they were at
When they found out she had cancer
To the church where they got married
To the time when he asked her to marry him
Finally to the place where they met

There story replays again in his mind
he lays cold on the ground beside her
The wind dies down
and the candle starts burning again

The King of Charm

The King of Charm I have searched for and wondered Just who my prince charming would be You know the one who was made Specifically for me He will want to treat me Like I am the very best He will make me feel like I’m better than all of the rest He will really want to hold me Not only when I ask him to It will just be something He truly wants to do The kisses he gives to me Will be so very sweet That I’ll tingle all over From my head to my feet His love for me Will be so real That I’ll know how A woman should feel He will be my soul mate Though I have had one before We never shared our life together So this time will certainly be more It’s as if the journey Goes on and on again As if it’s in a spin cycle Without reaching an end I’m really in a higher category As a friend pointed out to me I actually need a level above Who a prince charming would be Now the next level up From a prince charming love Would have to be a king’s status So that’s why I’ve only had love duds I may only be the queen of drama As is what my friend actually said It still carries the category of a queen So those are the steps I’m going to tread Now I am turning in a new direction Away from those prince charming men They seem to be galloping all around me Just not meeting the criteria of my searching So it really must be the king of charm The one who will find true love with me Together we will share our dreams of life And live together forever very happily Florence McMillian (Flo)

Live In My Heart

Live in my heart
And possess my soul,
Adding chapters to lover`s tales never told.
Many could preach about
How tight they hold,
But this I see till the time we`re old.

Live in my heart
Where true love lies,
Where embracement and kisses 
At once hypnotize.
My thoughts your thoughts
At one in twine, 
Lips to lips
But both hard to find.

Live in my heart
And you`ll see my love,
True love...a sweet love,
Is what I have for you
And only you my love.

A Day Vs. A Lifetime

A day in love with my very best friend:
That's all I was given.
Then,
Straight out of Heaven,
God sent me an angel instead.
He sent me a lifetime of love til the end.
Thank you for that day.
Thanks for going away.
Now, I can smile and say,
"Thank you, God, for a day of pain,
And for the love of a lifetime that followed."

Open your eyes

Open your eyes ..
Love is a shadow constricting you up close
And when you sleep it lays next to you..

Love is a force that drags you, possesses you, 
And fills you up with memories of today for a life of tomorrow..

Love is a sword cutting through the soul..
Leaving you breathless for eternal moments that will never come back 

Love is like a feather blown by the wind, 
And injected in our hearts by a single wish... 
To never be alone!

Love is an aura..
We all have one, yet we can't see it or touch it,
We Have to believe  its there, and it will show up..

               ..to give us a chance to trust, to build, to fall,  and get up;  over and over again!

I Want to Walk with You

I Want to Walk with You
 
I want to walk with you with our heads held high
Never cowering, never with heads bowed
With our feet on this blessed soil, and our dreams reaching for the sky
 
Dreams of simple joys and of peace and of mirth
For all our fellow travelers on this delightful earth
 
Dreams not of wealth or of positions of high standing or of mighty power
Simple dreams of a walk in the aftermath of a Johannesburg evening rain-shower
 
Dreams of bread and water and dignity and shelter and clothes for all
Dreams where all fellow travelers may together walk this earth proud and tall
 
I want to walk with you, my fellow traveler, with our heads held high
Never pandering to power, never silent in the face of its abuse
Always firm in our convictions that we can all make peace if we only try
 
If we try to stop and think and sometimes not to look the other way
If we practice what our different creeds really teach, we will surely see that day
 
When we all, fellow travelers may walk with our heads held high
Never cowering, never with our heads bowed
With our feet on this blessed soil, and our collective dreams reaching for the sky
 
Call me silly, call me naive, call me hopeless, and if you must, call me weak
But is this not the common good that our different creeds and cultures all seek?

Half a Heart

Once in a while, It would be good to feel, That I'm not alone, That I AM real. Once in a while, It would be kinda nice to know, That I'm not invisible, That I'm not a Hoe. (MEANING GARDENING TOOL) But only having half a heart, Makes it kinda hard to move on. I will learn a lot, From his little con. I am a dreamer, I am a believer, But when I am only left with half heart. It's kinda hard not to take rejection hard. Another one is walking around, With his little stripper, His little crown. She has no idea who she'd end up with, Giving birth in the hospital. No one with her. But only having half a heart, Makes it kinda hard to move on. I will learn a lot, From his little con. I am a dreamer, I am a believer, But when I am only left with half heart. It's kinda hard not to take rejection hard. Raise our hands, Clap to the beat, Of a hummingbird's wings. Just remember I'm still here, The only one, The only one, In love with you... But only having half a heart, Makes it kinda hard to move on. I will learn a lot, From his little con. I am a dreamer, I am a believer, But when I am only left with half heart. It's kinda hard not to take rejection hard. We are strong, Cold to the core, We gotta let you know, We're not your doll anymore.

A Blessing What is love

 Love is a blessing, and always will be.
For love still remains life''s sweetest mystery.
 Love works in ways that are wondrous and strange
and there''s nothing in life that love cannot change.
 Love can transform in the most common place,
Into beauty and splendor, sweetness, and grace
 Love is unselfish, understanding and kind.
For its sees from the heart and not from the mind.
Love is the answer that everyone seeks.
Love is the language that every heart speaks.
Love can''t be bought its priceless and free.
 A blessing from God above, oh shall it be.

Who Knew?

I woke up and rolled over,
Felt you brush against my shoulder;
I smiled.
Your laugh tickled my heart.
Our love on fire from that spark:
So worth while.
You caress me and squeeze tight,
Not too hard, but just right.
I'm weak.
I've fallen in love without knowing,
And I'm sure that it's showing:
Is this a dream?
This kind of love only happens in movies.
How did you do this to me?
How did I fall?
All I know is that I can't see
Anything but you with me.
I promise you my all,
For you to have and to hold
Until we're both really old;
And I, you.
You're all I want and need,
The best thing to happen to me.
Who knew?

Keep on Knocking

To live a life of splendor
   A life of joy, comfort, and wonder

You knocked...
   I opened.

Trust me, believe me, stand by me
   The one in your dreams, let me be

You knocked...
   I opened.

Walls slowly came crumbling down
  Unaware of what was bound

You knocked...
  I opened.

If only you came with a caution sign
   so I could at least resign

You knocked...
   I still opened.

Let the truth be told
   For this I am too old

You knocked...
   I cannot open.

Was I the fool
   to be had by such a tool?

You continued to knock...
   I will not open.

Farewell to you and your cruel lies
   I turn a deaf ear to all your cries

You knocked...
   I will NEVER open!

When I am gone, I am still here

 When i am gone and you can no longer see my face,
Just know in my heart you'll never be replaced

When i am gone, left you without a goodbye or a trace, 
When my absence makes itself known and your life like
footsteps take on a sadder, slower pace remember i am always here, always near

Can you feel me wipe away your tears? Whispering in your ear
Informing you that better days are near and you have nothing to fear for my arms wrap Around you becoming your shield    

My words are growing thin and i have nothing more to say
Just remember even when I'm gone, I am never too far away....  I am still here

Dance

Take your hand and put it out forward,
Than swing out out to the side, c'mon don't be a coward. 
This is fun, now swing your hips from side to side,
Remember all the times you couldnt express yourself and you cried.

But now your can swing your legs and feet any way you want,
Look for that new move that you looked for your whole life like a hunt. 
Grab someone by the hand and let them join you in that awesome moment,
I promise you, you will love this feeling you are about to feel.

Turn up the music and dance your heart out,
Move to the beat and go wild and feel like your out of sight. 
This is your moment, don't let anyone take that away for you,
This is not happening too slow and i tell you that that's the truth.

Put some head phones on and go to your own world of greatness,
Bust a move like you never did before, I promise it's harmless.
Make your heart feel what I am feling right now and take my hand,
I promise that I will make you smile and scream with joy and stand.

The Life She Has Always Wanted

There’s a girl, sitting at the back of the bar.
Waiting for a glimpse of the life that she’s always wanted.
She’s not looking for a fairy tale or gold.
Just a little work, and some love not from the usual mold.
He walks in with promises, ending in heartbreak and tears.
She drowns him out slowly, with new dreams and a few beers.
The girl sitting at the back of the bar.
Waiting for a glimpse of the life she’s always wanted.
Two years have passed, not much has changed.
She still comes each week to sit at her corner table.
Some work, many dreams, and a few beers become her label.
The women all judge her inside their private mind.
Small town men buy her a drink, wink and smile, but aren’t her kind.
The girl sitting at the back of the bar.
Waiting for a glimpse of the life she has always wanted.
She has big dreams of life, love, and the woman that she wants to be.
I sit across the bar, wishing she’d look just once more to me.
I turned my back, messed up not long ago.
She told me that she loved me, but she had to go.
I failed to show her my love, I’d hurt her badly.
Breaking her heart blindly, while loving her madly.
That girl sitting at the back of the bar.
Waiting for a glimpse of the life that she has always wanted.
Pulling the ring from my pocket, my jaw stubbornly clenching.
I push through the crowded room, and voice my intention.
Dear Beth, I will love you forever. I’m down on my knees!
Just give me one last chance, and marry me please.
That was two years ago yesterday.
And still my love grows more every day.
For the girl sitting at the back of the bar.
Waiting for a glimpse of the life she has always wanted.
As I nod and thank the bar tender, and add to his tips.
I pick up two drinks, turn to the back of the bar, a smile on my lips.
Cause there is my girl, sitting at the back of the bar.
Living the dreams of the life that she’s always wanted.

                                                                                       Summer Gratias

For My Dearest Love Jacob

     The dark black sky it glimmers,
     Brighter than the Sun.
     I look around this broken world
(I) see your the only one.
     When all the strength escapes earths roots,
     And floats out past the sea.
     And when the ground below me breaks 
     I know you'll carry me.
     All my hope is buried deep,
     Not just beneath the skin.
     But deep within my soul it lays
     Inspiring my pen.
     This Love I feel embraces me
     The black sky wraps me tight.
     Because of your bright shining eyes
     I know I'll sleep tonight

Beloved

Loved by the earth,
loved by the sky,
caught in the middle 
till the day you die.

You play in the sunshine
and dance with the moon,

Loved by the earth,
loved by the sky,
caught in the middle,

You dress up in fashion,
wear nothing at all,
just be sure that 
you hear when I call.

Loved by the earth,
loved by the sky,
caught in the middle 
till the day you die.

I felt as if marriage might help even our score
A ring on your finger might be the missing link

Or a certificate on the wall it all made me think
I wanted to get married again I still wanted more
I wished our love to be among legend and lore
I wanted it to be us straight through to the core

Love

I will always hold you into my heart.
When i cry I think of you,
how you used to hold me; the world was like it was only us two.
Even if you are gone for a little while nothing except time will keep us apart.

Never Be Afraid to Speak up

Big brown eyes and long brown hair
Shes so beautiful it isn't fair.
With every step she seems to glow
she's so pretty but she doesn't know...

High school jock with long strong legs
hes wasting his years drinking down kegs.
The beautiful girl stands near by
but she can't approach him she's far to shy...

Watching this girl for many years
scrawny boy with large round ears.
Big huge glasses that cover his eyes
want's to talk to the girl but hes far to wise...

Scrawny boy with the large round ears decides
hes going to overcome one of his fears
he walks up to the girl and asks her her name
just as the jock scores a goal that wins the game...

He tries again but she sends him away
she says she doesn't want to see him any day.
He walks away with his heart broken
shut down just after the moment he had spoken....

Beautiful boy with the golden skin
every girl want's to be with him.
After watching the jock break the beautiful girl's heart
all he could do was watch her fall apart....

Beautiful girl looks his way 
This was what he'd wished for every day
but now many years later, looking back
he remembers himself the scrawny boy
and how she made his heart crack....

This is a message to give everyone a chance
don't judge people with a once over glance.
Treat everyone right because its the best thing to do
You'll live your life happy the whole way through.

The Pillow of Passion

May you rest your head upon a soft feathery pillow of passion!
May you rise above big white clouds with dreams of only yours!
May you look down and view the Oceans of a magnificent blue.
May you swiftly drift yourself along traveling further and further! 
Only to bring yourself closer to the warmth of a new Sun rising!

May you forever stay afloat with your dreams and your thoughts!
And may your dreams align exactly with your one true pure love.
And when your perfect love finally starts shining his love through, 
May he be a knight who will ride the winds steadfast just for you!
And may all your dreams touch every heart that is pure and true!

May you rise above Sunsets and Sunrises gently sharing each color!
May both of you look up into an enormous bright illuminating blue sky.
May you see each Star connecting you to interconnected connections!
And may you continue on drifting yourselves further and further along, 
A perfect love plants its deep seed in dreams living alive inside of you.

May you forever be together as one afloat with balanced hands turning time! 
A brand new creation love makes and honesty must open new doors to enter.
Two hearts harmonized in breath synergize loves perfect flow in and through.
May you and your knight always ride the currents in the very same direction!
Always and forever love is resting in scented beds with the finest pure flower! 
Your knight is a stem of buds rooted in full bloom inside the pillow of passion!

Love 1

Loves Chance
 
loves in town taking chances
 dancing with all the girls
 turning out very short romances
 loves been at it again flirting with the world
 love moved three doors down
 you should see all the dances
 loves been twirling around
 fast enough for true love to be found

 loves taking chances
 and we'll soon hit the ground
 loves leaving heart aches all around
 watch out now loves in town
 heard it's searchin' without bounds
 we'll all be at our witts ends down
 lets get into the gritt
 make sure get a good grip
 now that loves in town
 we'll sit through the fit-
 and then love walks right in and sits down

Memories

Tear soaked tombstones
Love letters
Class rings and report cards.

Texts from you
Roses from homecoming
Kisses stolen in the twilight
Phone calls until midnight.

Standing in the rain
Holding your hand
Neck to neck in the wind
I wish it would never end.

I fell for a boy in blue
And then I met a boy in black.
When he left me crying
You were there to pick me up.
I found my best friend
And feelings that never end.

Walking out against the wind 
Your arm around me
I’m smiling and you’re watching me.
This time I take your hand
Gently turn around and marvel your eyes
Before wrapping my arms around
Your neck and kissing you.
And I feel no cold
As your arms go around me.
We are one
One and the same.

I hold you close to me
And whisper your name
As the cold wind
Whips around us going on.
But this moment is ours.

Lost Love Found by WLM on March 29, 2011

I need not scream
For the return of my dream
I feel so much better
For from her I received a letter
Her feelings were not of being mad
But of making me feel glad
She still wants me
And that is the way it should be
There was never a great cost
Nor even a feeling of being lost
When I heard from my love
All was still sent from heaven above
She finally did show
And my face had such a great glow
For me she does still need
So for now I will not concede
She still loves me so
In my heart I will always know
To me she will still marry
Now my head is not in a flurry
And a family we will still start
In mine heart I will sing like a lark
As God meant us to see
Together we will always be
In the simple breeze
I will hold her in my arms to squeeze
Now that I have my dear
I will lose all my fear
I have my best friend back
Oh God thank you for that
For with her I have no doubt
Thank you God I will never be without
She has made me so happy I still cry
For in my heart I do not want to die
All the feelings of dread
Have been put out of my head
To her I have so much to give
And for all of that we will always live
We must always treat each so well
My heart can only swell
I feel so young again
And that is where she will begin

Hair In the Breeze

She stands along the wet sandy shoreline,
her blond hair flowing freely, while the beach wind, comes to blow,
Her eyes upon me, smiling is she, toward me, in the distance, 
as her beauty, reminds me, of reasons, of why, I love her so. 

A work of art, she is, in this scene, in the making,
of which, no one like her, can ever compare.
To me, by god, she was made like an angel,
perfection made in heaven, from way, up there.

what I need

In this world full of hurt and pain,
I need a special someone who would help me through the rain.
To comfort me when Im sad,
Doing everything possible just to make me glad.

In this world I need a strong Brave Knight,
Who would never give up on my fight.
A knight who would dry away my tears,
Telling me to overcome all my fears.

A knight who loves me for who I am inside,
With him there's nothing more I need to hide.
A person who will still be standing so strong,
Eventhough everything has gone oh so wrong.

I need someone who is willing to give me more,
Someone I can call my Knight In Shining Armor.

Decided

Years of indecision 
Ended in an instant 
My life in third revision 
Starting in the present 

Touching everything I've owned 
Importing their very essence 
Of each and every feeling they borne 
History rearing it's very presents 

Boxed and placed on an empty truck 
My very existence held in transit 
That is when the melancholy struck 
Walking out this door would be a heroic bit 

On the other side of town a lady waited 
Patiently for me and for me to decide 
That my wild single passions were sated 
And to face and enjoy life by her side 

I fired up that truck, my heart, soul and mind 
Pointed them carefully to the other side of town 
Arriving at a place, I knew, true love I would find 
Truly amazed at the acceptance I had found.

She flew in on a Sunday

She came to me.
Moving inside the winds of change and I saw her.

Opening my eyes wider than wide, 
a newness washes over me
as though the previous years just melted away,
into something more, something real.

Stumbling, the floor opens beneath me and, 
I'm falling
faster 
further
unaware of my directions, I fly to her.

Fear only exist in her absense therefore, 
I must clothe myself in robes of her spirit.
Her lips full, fill my daydreams,
Her eyes consume my nights.
The chess game of 10 years prior seem like an unessential waste of time 
Yet, it marks our story, 
traces our land,
flavors our history
Without it, she would be another's,
and I, 
would be caught in the wind of something else.

Something loud and noisy, 
empty of spirit,
closed to her and everyone else,
flying in circles, 
lost in living
without love, 
without passion, 
without life.

The Web

The workings of soft, silk strides…
They are left by whom? The twice fourth eyes. 
Led souls to thy center of sanguine streams,
To one, words flow out to say what I mean.
In words of organic cords,
Be the melody of a key.
Todays for tonights,
Close eyed in company.
For in rain and in shine,
Twined with the warmth of canopy. 
How shall it burn within all of time,
For your love is all I see.
This and all my might,
It be you and only you.
No struggles or angered plights, 
The one who sees me through.
You found me like bright kites,
In the air, carried out to you.
For today I can sway in the wind of our days 
And glide together towards a life of two.
Where I can say,
I truly love you.

Just For You

  In my dreams I have a place,
where I can leave the human race,
and make a world that's all my own,
where you and I can be alone.

   I'd tell you all my secrets there,
I'd give to you my soul to share,
and when at last, the day was through,
I'd make another, just for you.

   Nights would last an eternity,
and we'd count the stars, just you and me,
then, when we could count no more,
we'd lay against a sandy shore,
where face to face and hand in hand,
we'd step into the promised land,
where wishes, hopes and dreams come true,
I'd make it happen, just for you.

   In my dreams I have a place,
Where I always feel your warm embrace,
and if you want to feel mine too,
I'll make it happen, just for you.

A Different Pace

Out of sight, isn’t out of mind
Out of place don’t mean you don’t belong 
Out of pocket don’t mean you’re not rich
Out of tune don’t mean 
It’s not our song
Out of style don’t mean
You ain’t got class
Out of steep don’t mean
I’ll walk on by
Out of luck just means
It’s not our time 
Out of reach doesn’t mean
That we can’t try

Do We Have An Example Just ONE

Do We Have An Example?

Do we have an example of those
 who aren’t afraid to say…
“I’m going to bow my head
 to the Lord and pray.”

Do we have an example of those with a like mind?
To be respectful, courteous and kind?

Do we have an example of those who’ll take a stand?
Against the tide of evil 
all throughout this land?

Do we have an example?  Just one person?
Who’ll live by the Bible… 
And apply it’s lessons?

Do we have an example of those
 to teach the younger generation…
Living for God will give us a solid foundation?

Do we have an example?  Anyone to be found?
Who’ll spread the gospel 
to every city and town?

Do we have an example?  Can we look to YOU?
Who’ll try to live the way Jesus wants us to?

Can we find an example? With the courage to live?
Being Christ example with the power to FORGIVE!

Can we find an example?  Let me make this point.
There’s Jesus!  And he will  NEVER disappoint!

Can we trust this example?  Most assuredly YES!
In HIM can you find a security,
 a peace and a REST!

Will you be an example? And give your life to him?
And experience what it means to be “born again!”

His example of love can be yours and mine…
Won’t you give HIM a chance?
  While there’s still time?

far from a dream

I have a rich love that awaits your claim each day i breathe you, the consequences 
of your love flow supernaturally free. My worst fears are shattered and wiped away 
just the thought of loving you unconditionally can put knowledge into the weakest 
brain. Our unity is pure as a thousand gold bars wrapped in silk resting on a bed of 
pearls, you are truly my loves symbolic figure of triumph, a juggernaut of affection; 
graceful as the flap of a hummingbirds wings when it first begins to sing.

My heart is still

The smile.

The eyes.

The heart.

...The soul.

The love.

 

It's changing the day from that deep sorrow filled plight,

To a Day with blue skies and not a cloud in sight,

She is like the sun but twice as bright.

 

It's changing my life and keeping me from drowning tonight.

It's keeping my heart still and away from my soul, away from the fight.

 

It feels like everything is ok. Everything is alright.

Love Is

Love is the greatest feeling to know.
Love is learning as we go.
Love is blind when others see.
Love is you and love is me.
Love is your hug when I'm feeling down.
Love is showing me off around town.
Love is missing me when I can't stay.
Love is kissing me though I'm miles away.
Love is your soft caress on my skin.
Love is my heart letting you in.
Love is your smile inside and out.
Love is knowing without a doubt.
Love is standing in the rain.
Love is my happiness and my pain.
Love is waiting in the cold.
Love is together growing old.
Love is truth and respect.
Love is to forgive and to forget.
Love is the soft look in your eye.
Love is your shoulder when I cry.
Love is whispering your name to the wind.
Love is understanding again and again.
Love is wanting to hold you soon.
Love is wishing on the same bright moon.

My Love, Rene

Your skin glows like the strawberry, blossoms perfect as the black rose in the purest hope of

My yearning heart rises to your calming voice and leaps like a cat at the whisper of your

The evening ascends in on a great raven wing.
I am calmed by your touch that I carry into the twilight of parkbeams and hold next to my

I am filled with hope that I may dry your tears of loneliness. 
As my love falls from my mind, it reminds me of your beauty. 
In the hushed, I listen for the last laugh of the spring.
My heated soul leaps to my heart. I wait in the crystal moonlight for your secret passion so 
that we may kiss as one, soul to soul, in search of the glorious peace filled and spiritual

A Womans Gift

She laughed as softly  as if she cried
Her smile revealed things only I could see
My love and joy swelled up untill I cried
I wondered  though would she ever love me

Her smile revealed things only I could see
Now would I tell her of the things I thought
I wondered though would she ever love me
What is this feeling that has made me taut

Now would I tell her of  the things I thought
All other food but  love I'd surely spare
What is this feeling that has made me taut
My life I'd gently give to her  with care

All other food but love I'd surely spare
Then I would be hers and she would be mine
My life I'd gently give to her with care
I'd love her dearly throughout time

Then I  would be hers and she would be mine
A life together we would have to build
I'd love her dearly throughout time
I'd be her love, companion and her shield

A life together we would have to build 
My love and joy swelled up until I cried
I'd be her love,companion and her shield
She laughed as softly as if she cried

About Kameron by Taylor

I stood in the room staring at that hard wooden floor.

Thought of him and then closed the door.
I looked back up and everything was black.
Suddenly I knew the pain was back.

But he loved me.
I knew that much.

Black and gray rags were scattered everywhere,
And all I could do was stare.

But he loved me .
I knew that much.

I sat on his bed and noticed that the tears started to shed.
Then I saw a very dark closet.
I heard our song and wanted to pause it.
I felt my heart slowing with the rhythm.

But he loved me.
I knew that much.

Light began to shine through the enormous window.
I looked over,
And there...was a shadow.
The giant black drapes turned blue.
I thought to myself:"This can't be true."

Because I knew he loved me.

The roses came back to life.
And the bed turned white.
The rags turned into his clothing.

The music slowed and I didn't know what I was being shown.
But I loved him.
A light came from the closet.

A light that was brighter than any of the stars in the sky.
I saw a figure,and again,I started to cry.
I saw his face,saw his smile,
And knew that this was our special place.
And he said I love you.

Those three words meant the world to me and him .
And I said,
...I love you a whole lot more.

Do You Know Someone Bruised And Afflicted


Have You Met Someone Bruised And Afflicted? Have you met someone who’s been battered and abused? Their body all torn up, beaten and bruised? Have you met someone involved in a deep addiction? Causing harm to themselves and many afflictions? Have you met someone who seems to be “all right?” But chose the “dark path.” And not THE LIGHT! There’s many lives involved in many kinds of perversions. Many who’ve left their families for their “obsessions,,,” Only the blood of Christ can break the bondage of sin! Only Jesus can bring a complete healing deep within! Only Jesus can bring true love to a discouraged soul! He’s done this for me! This I surely know! I don’t know where I’d be if not for his mercy and grace! He picked me up and planted my life on a solid place! He traded the ashes of my life for his wonderful beauty. Serving him is an honor and my faithful duty! He truly gives a peace that passes all understanding. It’s available to you today! And can be yours for the asking! By Jim Pemberton

So-Called Good Christians

You have made a choice. 
You have chosen hatred. 
In our Heavenly Father, 
you have chosen not to rejoice. 
He is who spares the most awful dread. 
  
You have chosen to hate me. 
First it was the “N” word, 
the Afro comment, 
and my curly hair. 
Now you hate me 
for the religion 
that I have chosen to be. 
My faith gives me what is right and fair. 
  
I pity you for all your hate. 
But you made it clear my fate. 
A Mormon to this date, 
a Mormon forever. 
Your rage and hate 
prove my faith and 
choice of religion right. 
Your bigoted hatred
I have chosen to fight 
by giving it light. 
I want it 
in everyone's sight. 
  
Your rage and hatred is your only boast. 
But with it you are engrossed. 
Like you, your rage and hatred 
are nothing but compost. 
Heavenly Father, Jesus Christ, and the Holy Spirit 
gives me what I need the most. 
  
And for you, that is just 
too bad so sad.

A Love For Each Other

Alone in the world is my biggest fear
Being alone makes me shed a tear
She came out of nowhere and helped me see
That her and I being together is meant to be
I have fallen for this girl mind,heart, and soul
Her and I together makes me feel whole
I love her and I know she loves me in return
Our passion makes the flame of love burn
I hold her in my arms and refuse to let go
We both smile because we didn't know
A love that burns deep without it ever dying
We both are happy together and our passion continues flying.

Still In Love

Still In Love... My son came to me with a question on his mind. I said; “Not now son— I just don't have the time.” He said, “Daddy—are you still in love with Mommy?” “Do you love her like you did when I was in her tummy?” My eyes choked with tears; “Yes son I really do!” “I'm in love with her... and I appreciate you.” “Daddy—will you always love me like you do mom?” “Yes my son—my love for you will always belong.” I looked down and much to my surprise. There were tears running down my sons's eyes. He came running to me with his arms wide open. “Thank you daddy” were his words spoken. I picked him up and gave him a great big hug. As I let him down, on my shirt I felt a tug. His little arm reached up to grab my hand. I knew that what I said, he began to understand. I love his mom so much—my wonderful wife. She's been such a blessing- a great part of my life! By Jim Pemberton

My Grass in the Desert

The midnight magic sprinkles in the air.
I can hear the every breath that you take.
Closing my eyes I am so lost to any existence.
This moment is mine that I create.
So very, very much I am content!
My soul is engaged with such a paradise. 
I am aimlessly there.

Ah yes! Yes indeed, 
You are my grass in the desert and I am so very, very near.
The glitter is everywhere, 
I can breathe the every breath that you take.
Closing my eyes I am so lost for time.
This moment is mine that I make.
So very, very much I am entwined.
My soul is entangled with magic so sublime, 
I am without a single care.
Yes, yes, yes! 

You are my grass in the desert and I do often come there.
The radiance I stand and bear.
I can touch the every breath that you take.
Closing my eyes I am so lost without a cause.
This moment is mine that I partake.
So very, very much I am lost.
My soul is entangled in this web of mine, 
I am so very, very much there.

I am lost in time.
Ah yes, yes, yes indeed!
You are my grass in the desert and I am here to share.
Blossoms are blooming everywhere planting the harvested seeds.
My grass in the desert is all that I will ever need, even when so desolately bare!

Heartless Fire

In my fervent heart,
You knew I treasured you
But you didn’t return those tender feelings
Just see the fumes arise from the consuming fire
Because my wicked desires wasted away into embers
I love you…I love you…These feelings are ever so new!
I LOVE YOU…I love you…These feelings are always true!
You knew I honestly adored you…oh yeah; I always did from the start
But you don’t consider those mild feelings—you wrecked those bits by bits
Ah! Now I’m crammed into the ascending fire, splintering me with the strokes of death
Because of my virtuous desires, I’m wasting away into the pit of corruption
I thought you were encompassed with my passionate kisses
But you wanted to chase after your callous blisses, now I’m faced with crises
I detest the thought of adoring you…but I have to admit—I love you!
I love you…I love you with all of my heart! Do you love me too?
I know the desires that I have constructed for you never occurred in your heart
I know in the bottom of my heart that you were only enticed by your sick pleasures
You’re dumping me into the raging fire and you’re a sneaky little liar
Because I ain’t lying like you do deceitfully to me—I’m in love and I can’t draw back my desire
You brought magnificence in my eyes, comforting angel
But I’m subsiding into the cavernous fire
Because I surrender to my legit desire
How could I free from the embrace that yanks on to me?
You brighten up my dreams and set me free from reality’s calamity
I love you…I love you…These feeling relieve me from the blue!
I LOVE YOU…I love you…I adore your every existence—do you get the clue?
You knew I kept this feeling inside for so long
Nevertheless, I feel that I belong
In your heart…In His heart…
In my heart…we’ll never depart!
You are my true endeavor
And I wanna win your heart forever!
You’ll always be loved because you’re above beautiful
But, you don’t believe this love will survive in this stranded palace
But I’ll attempt to win you with all of my might and I’ll defeat the malice
Our boundless love is like two fireflies floating in the midnight sky
But you disturbed our greetings and you didn’t even accept the feelings I felt for you
Why did you blow away our interweaved feelings of passion
And blew them away into the heartless fire?
My precious love, why did you diminish my eternal desire?
You knew I worshiped you
In my sensitive heart

my words

My words are strong they will never crumble
they were ment to be heard i will never mumble
i am steady i am ready, i will never fumble
i will never fall or stumble 
i will land this never tumble
my voice is screaming you can feel it rumble
rage in my fists but its inspirational
my words click into your brain and stick its sensational 
my eyes are red and staring into yours and every second you see them is informational
it tells you what ive been through and what i do
im hurt, limping but im still going not stopping 
bones break and my joints popping
i cant stop, my knees are weak but my bodys not dropping
i only got one leg, but im hopping 
determination is forever and failure is not starting
to see this is quite heartening 
motivation in ear drops is what im marketing 
im a beast inside thats why dogs wont stop barking
im finding the number one spot and parking 
i wont move
DONT touch me IM NOT THOUGH
i see walls between me and you
i will break through with nothing but words that are true
no matter what you do
you cant stop me can you
and you know that dont you
you cant break me down
you can try but it comes back around 
i rise again with a raging sound
muttering incoherently hellbound 
to tell the devil he cant take me now
i dont have you yet, I WONT BE PUT IN THE GROUND
i refuse to die
i am the undead
i dont need to lie
i just need to be read
i must try 
even if it puts a bullet in my head
i wont stop to cry
and now you know..... my words have been read.

Forever-Part 1

Out on the beach with an amazing guy. The sun's so pretty, the sun's so bright. We're walking and talking about all our good times, against the world, hand in hand. Smiling and walking on the beautiful LA sand. We sit on a bolder and watch the sun set. It's an amazing day, one I will never forget. You slip your arm around me as we as we look at the beautiful sea. "I love you," I say as we feel the cool evening breeze. "I love you too," you say and pull out a small black box. I look at you, smile, and my heart stops. You open the box to reveal a beautiful ring. "Will you marry me?" you ask as my eyes fill with tears and my heart starts to sing. My smile gets wider as I say "yes". You pull me close to your chest. I gently kiss you as a tear rolls down my cheek. You brush it away and smile at me. "I love you," I say one more time. "I love you to baby," you say as you smile, "now your deffinitly all mine."

 

Today's the day, the day that starts the rest of our life. The day you become my husband, the day I become your wife. The last time I saw you was last night. But I woke up to a beautiful sight. A bouque of beautiful red roses lie on your pillow with a note on top. "I love you," it says, "and I can't wait to see you." I smile and whisper "I love you too." I take a shower and walk down to the beach to see how much is done. I step onto the hot sand and I feel the hot sun. It's almost done so I start to head home. I need to here your voice so I call your phone. "Hey babe," you say, "is everything okay?" I tell you everythings fine, I just need to hear you. I tell you I love you. You tell me you love me too. You say you have to go but you'll see me soon. "Okay, I love you," I say and look at the clock, it's almost noon. "I love you too," you say and the line goes dead. I look in the mirror and put my hands on my head. I smile and start to get ready for tonight. The first night of m new life.

I take a look in the mirror one last time. Just to make sure my beautiful dress is fine. I walk down to the beach and wait by the gate. I fix my veil and look at my friend. "You look amazing," she says and puts some flowers in my hand. "Thanks," I say and smile. I can't wait to walk down the aisle.

OMUBBI -"Thief"

Like a thief at midnight
He came along
Sending whispers down my heart
And shivers down my spine
Entrapped in his line,I was
	
They say he is a master of all trades
But he passed my way today
And even I was caught unaware

But then he opened his eyes
And lit up my life
And everyday I hope
He never blinks 
That this light never dies out
The one that makes me smile.

life's insight

I had to be strong and not falter
Remember our wedding day?
You ran from the alter
Didn’t want to talk to anyone wanted to be alone
Remember our conversation on the cellphones?
You expressed your doubts
And began to shout
Recalling a fight from moths ago
When friends and us all went out

I embraced you with words
And foiled your concerns
We both couldn’t ignore
What our hearts yearned 

We shed our tear
And shared a cry
Look at us now 
We’re doing fine
2 years later a beautiful lady
Hugs, kissed, and endless smiles
Expecting our first baby

What a good mother
 You never scold
Lilly Ann we hoard like treasure
That’s our precious gold

We shed tears
And shared a cry
Look at us now
We are a family with our own house 
And we are doing fine

A Blissful Lifetime

Rowdiness drives though your eyes 
It builds a freeway, leading to consistent roads 
I can’t explain your stunning beauty, making my passion jam-packed
I can’t explain this heartfelt feeling inside—it’s so inconceivable  
Your nature is like a vermillion, impeccable rose; your scent is gratifying 
I can’t explain this addiction I have planted inside—I want to overdose 
On your genuine desires (that is most appealing)
That last a lifetime, pouring forth glee 
Upon my contemptuous sorrows and kisses 

Your tone of voice burns like a wildfire…penetrating me like crazy
It tears down the habitation that once existed and now gone
I can’t explain this fishy sensation plunging inside—it’s so absurd
Your nature reflects a treacherous passion like a whirling sea
I can’t explain this admiration I have drilling inside—caught in the waves of motion
Pounding lightly and ardently
It only lasts a few milliseconds… pouring forth notions
Upon my overwhelmed mind with gouges and blisses 

These excruciating scars left a mark
That lasts a century, accumulating my glory  

Running over my heart …tearing me apart…
Pounding me with affection…showing me the direction 
Where I could drive through the rowdiness of your eyes

Sandra's Poem

Some people will count the days by minutes and hours
I spend it thinking of you in a field full of flowers
I can see the look on your face and the wind in your hair
And I think upon ways to go from this place and to there
The sun begins to set as you wait in that place
My view becomes dim and my heart starts to race
Just one last glimpse and I think I will say
That now I can smile, and wait through the day.

Whistling Wind Chimes

Was it something my mouth openly said?
You make me simply wonder sometimes!
Just hearing the whistling wind chimes,
I wonder what goes on in your head!

I am always here,
You are always there,
We breathe in the same air,
The whistling wind chimes always carry me near.

Playing around in a challenging make believe,
It’s just you and me today.
We’re well on our merry way.
No tricks or treats to deceive.
I’m whistling in the winds at you,
And you do it to me to!

Free Hearts

My sky is black and so is yours,
The cold sea rushes upon our shores.

I love you dear, we'll run away,
We'll run until our heart fades grey.

Their love is lost but ours is here,
We'll save our love throughout the years.

And as we confess our true love,
Our black sky stares from up above.

The sky is jealous of our pair,
She's jealous of the love we share.

But she cant hurt us, don't you see,
We'll run away until we're free.

Crush and Crushed

In the beginining,
There was a girl.
She was on a rollar coaster.
She saw her crush.
He ignored her.
He thought she was annoying.
He thought she was petiful.
Little did he know,
She would die that day.
Here's her story.

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

Little, little girl,
No cares in the world.
Bruises on her face,
Crazy on her trace.

Little, little girl,
Little, little crush.
Little, little love,
Little, little to much.

Only on a rollar coaster,
Would she believe,
She was air.
Carelessness filled her head,
Little, little so much dread.
The boy she liked,
Walking around with so much might,
Little, little did he know that she would die.

Little, big circle coming up,
She was on bottom the cart on top.
Watching the cart fallin',
He didn't know she was calling,
His name.

Heaven reached to her,
But she kept herself on earth,
Until she could see him again.

Only on a rollar coaster,
Would she believe,
She was air.
Carelessness filled her head,
Little, little so much dread.
The boy she liked,
Walking around with so much might,
Little, little did he know that she would die.

Tell him, tell him how you feel,
Little did you know it would feel so real.
Now that she was dead he started thinkin',
Was she crazy or was she worth loving?

Only on a rollar coaster,
Would she believe,
She was air.
Carelessness filled her head,
Little, little so much dread.
The boy she liked,
Walking around with so much might,
Little, little did he know that she would die.

Now she's going to heaven,
So many things she hasn't done.
She sees the door and,
Remembers her amore.

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

Later that night,
After he saw her die,
He commited suicide.
His parents found a note from him.
"I saw her die,
 I love her,
 I am going to be with her.
 I'm sorry"
He didn't go to heaven,
Neither did she,
They are both stuck in limbo,
At least they have each other.

The Visit

I saw you and my thoughts were unkind
 I wanted you so bad that I was out of my mind
 Deciding that the feelings were true
 So I picked a day to go see you
 
And it's down your street I drove
 Eyes wide open like a scared little doe
 As my knees almost caved
 One last look in the mirror I gave
 
And my finger bent as I rang your bell
 My mind was racing in a temporary hell
 I leaned over kind of in a craze or a magnificent daze
 For these were the directions you gave
 
Maybe I could see you a different time
 The relief made me want to lie there maybe die there
 
Immediately prepared to become your slave
 If and when for any time you gave
 And as I began to hate
 The crack around the door gave
 And standing there looking so great
 My emotions swelled my efforts had been paid
 I whispered, "So how are you?"
 You answered, "Good, so how about you?"
 We both instantly knew
 It was the love shinning through

YOur EYes

your eyes are a window to your soul and heart
but what I see is more than that 
it is the love that I am seeing now 
as I look deeper into your heart 
I see an unoccupied space for me 
a place that I wish and hope to be
a place in your LIFE 
a place in your SOUL
a place for a for a man within your HEART
a place I see within YOUR EYES

Free

Opening up was the best thing I could have ever did
All those things that made me & embarrassed me as a kid
You never looked at me different because my past was shameful
Talked to you about some of the things in my life that we’re still painful
I am human, filled with emotions and lots of anger
Hate filled my heart to the point I wanted to lock it in a chamber
How I feel is as real and emotional as it gets
Stress consumed me for years, felt like I needed a cigarette
Needless to say the battle has been done
I’m still standing and breathing so I must have won
The ultimate prize of keeping my sanity and myself free
Love the fact my past is so messed up… It really made me
You I give the ultimate credit for finding my inner voice
Felt like with you I have to write, it really leaves me no choice
I am a woman, blemished, flawed and tortured by life
Invisible wounds on my heart from being cut by life’s knife
But still I stand and hold my head up High
I only have one life and I refuse to give up and Die
I am woman, lover, and loyal friend till this life takes me away
I only wish I could have told you all the things I wanted to say
I understand that people are placed in life for all types of reasons
With you I guess it was only meant for a season
Learned a lot about myself with the help of you
You embraced me with ease and had no clue
Life had killed me, left me emotionally dead
Then I met you, felt like the best thing I never had
The make up of me is so complex, guarded & sad
I’m learning to let go of it all, no more hanging on to the past
All those people that did wrong by me can officially get a rash
Living for me now so I gives no care how you feel
This is me, uncut, uncensored… I feel the need to be real
No longer taking my past and feeling sorry for how it was
Living life to the fullest… Just like everyone else does
Don’t feel sorry for me I am no longer a victim, I’m Free
Just letting the world know I am no longer ashamed of being me
The mirror I used to run from I now embrace
The hate that was once in my heart has now been replaced
That frown that I always wore because if hurt to smile
I keep this smile permanently embedded and it’s going to be here for a while
I am no longer sad…. I’m so focused on my life and moving forward
Carrying all that hate and anger around was such a burden
Free..Free.. Free from life’s tortures and Pain
Standing on my own two feet with a smile is how I will remain

Forever-Part 2

Pacabells cannon starts to play. The gates open and everyone looks my way. Beautiful black and red roses line the red carpet that leads to you. You look amazing tonight too. I look at my white dress as I step into the setting sun. The light catches the black sparkles and roses on my dress and makes me look beautiful, makes me feel like one. A black rose on this beautiful LA sand. A black rose that belongs to a wonderful man. I slowly walk down the aisle. I walk up to you and I smile. There's black and red roses on the alter and I get up ther. I can smell their sweet fregrance in the warm evening air. The paster starts as I look at you. You say you vouls and I say mine too. You say "I do," and I do the same too. You slip yet another beautiful ring on my finger and kiss me so sweetly. We hold hands and walk back down the beautiful rose lined aisle.

 

We walk to the peir where there are beautiful lights hung up everywhere. I spin to look at the beauty and you lean in close to me and say, "wait here." You walk up to the DJ and request and smile as a familure tune comes on. I continue to smile and I take your hand. you walk me back out onto the beautiful sand.  "Our first dance," you say. My smile gets bigger when I here Amazed starts to play. You pull me closer to you as we start to move from side to side. My nourvousness is hard to hide. "You okay beautiful?" you ask softly as you gently run your hand through my hair. "Yeah baby, I'm fine," I say as I see people gather around and stare. We dance and we sway sweetly and quietly. We kiss and dance slowly. We kiss again and you start to sing along with the song. I've been waiting for this day, I've been waiting so long.

 

We'r walking on the beach again. hand in hand. you still in your tux, I'm still in my dress. This is our future. Together. Forever. The setting sun catches my ring. It shines brightly. "I love you," I say and we kiss again. "I love you too," you say and gently pick me up.

You carry me back up to the house. You carry me up sairs and lay me on our bed. You lay beside me and gently kiss my head.

We lay there and talk for hours and hours. We smile and laughas our future stretches on in front of us.

A Southern New Year's

"Hey yall!"
Grabs a Roman Candle,
Sits it in a bottle,
Lights it,
Steps back and watches the colors explode.

Later you see Sally sneaking out the window,
She's going for a late night mud ride,
Her boyfriend Johnny's waiting with Mary and Mike,
"Yall ready?" Sally asks and they take off.

Sitting on the backporch with a portable TV watching the stars,
The ball drops,
It's no longer New Years Eve in Mississippi!

The fireworks really start going off now,
The whole town's awake,
Sally & Johnny stop the four wheeler under the bridge to watch,
How nice!

You can't even hear the TV now,
So you turn it off,
The stars are blocked by the magnificent colors,
And you just sit back and enjoy what luxury you get.

Then you see your boyfriend down the road waiting,
The night's no longer time,
It's time to take off.

You two decide to break in and go mud riding,
Sall & Johnny say ok,
You hop on the four wheeler,
"Is it ok for to be down here," asks your boyfriend,
"My cousin's covering for me," you say.

You know you love him,
And it's now 12:30,
You tell him to stop the four wheeler,
And under the stars,
You kiss,
A firework goes off in the distance.

You then continue on your journey mud riding,
Sally & Johnny already gone,
He drives you home at 3:00,
You sneak in through your window,
Change out of you muddy pants,
You don't care about your labs judgemental glance,
After all,
It's just a southern New Years.

Amanda my Dream, 
Just let out a scream, 
I know it will be, 
For YOU shall be with me, 
For the rest of my life, 
Without all the strife, 
We will always give,
Through our lives we will live, 
So happy and content, 
As it should be meant, 
And live and learn, 
In my arms I truly yearn, 
To have and to hold, 
For this I will be bold.

The secret you hold

I know you have a great secret..
But i doubt its as big as you think, 
Remember you can share anything with me, 
But i know that you are unsure of how i will react.

Dont worry my dear, 
I know what you are, 
Its all past my love, 
Leave the past behind,
And its none of your mistake, 
Remember The secret you hold is too heavy, 
For your lovely heart to handle.

As long as your heart is pure, 
As long as your love is true, 
Your love will be there with you, 
in all Good and Bad.
Its none of your mistake my love,
Remember, the secret you hold is too heavy,
For your lovely heart to handle. 

I have known it for a long time,
My love for you may be blind,
But i still have my senses to see, 
that you too are a human being, 
that you are my love my heart and my life, 
and so my dear don't worry ,
what others tell, or what others ask.
I know that some one asked for something,
something bad.. 
which made you feel really bad..
You are a pure lovely girl,
touched with hands of love only, 
The love that made my world a heaven. 

Oh baby! throw it out!!
throw your secrets out ,
its making me too nervous,
too scary when you react
in a way i cant handle...
think of a day when you can talk,  
anything and everything to me , 
when i can understand totally ,
what you tell to me.


I know only one thing.. 
That the secret you hold is too heavy,
For your lovely heart to handle.

Alike

The wind has yet to blow 
two feathers along the same path 
or tassel twin snowflakes to the ground 
Nor will the wind ever see 
similarity 
in all the clouds it pushes around 
The same applies to the twin-less waves 
it's carried 
and yet to carry 
who've crashed 
and yet to crash 
upon no two similar grains of sand 
Amidst all this failure 
to bring together 
no two objects alike 
It's a wonder that finally 
it's brought together you and me 
and managed to get it right

Friendship Inspiration

The beauty of friends is always at bay.
The truth is that will always stay.
Future of friendship is hard to tell.
It’s as far as you see down a deep well.
The deeper you look you see a reflection.
That opens your heart with a lot of affection.
The more friends you have you don’t waste time.
Instead you fill your days with sublime.

Let Love Be

Let this love of mine
  Take its plight.
How could someone
    Let love down.

Let this love's pain
   Break its binding chain.
For it is how love
     Eternally frees itself.   

Let this love so fine
    Fall from its flight.
How can someone
      Let love frown.  

Let this love that fell
   Cast its renewing spell.
For it is how love
      Forever saves himself.  

Let this love shine
  Just to burn out its light.
How come someone
    Let love drown.

Let this love's cry
  Be its will to never die.
For it is how love
      Endlessly saves herself.

Another moment to make sense of growing up

I have a hole in my heart and I'm not sure where it starts. Everything used to make so much sense to me, now I'm not sure who I'm going to be. It could just be part of growing up, because this feeling has came before, let's fill up another cup. let's drink to the way life used to be, and how life is now to you and me. when we get older, let's hope we still stand shoulder next to shoulder. I know life with you is the only thing that helps me make it through. the ups and downs of this life have us riding on a never ending roller coaster, with every up always leads a huge fall down. I have faith in us that we can make it through it all, because once every down fall has fell leads another rise up that can bring us another time that we don't have to dwell. So I'll stay with you for as long as forever, and hope that we will never say never.

Control

I loved you. You were creeped out. I loved you. You were all I thought about. Dreams bring misery, To this little life. I will use trickery. I don't go down without a fight. I will survive without you. You don't control me anymore. I will survive without you. You're not for me to adore. The mess you made, Taking my life for granted, Leaving me in a barracade, You never knew how much you mented. I am in control. Foreign language brings nightmares, Because I would curse you, And you would figure out later, That I once loved you. Teardrops cover my doorstep. Remember how much you ment, I gave you my heart you kept. And you left me there when I wept. I will survive without you. You don't control me anymore. I will survive without you. You're not for me to adore. The mess you made, Taking my life for granted, Leaving me in a barracade, You never knew how much you mented. I am in control. You left me there, In the pouring rain. Bleeding without care, My feelings were drained. I left... I left... I left... The past behind. I will survive without you. You don't control me anymore. I will survive without you. You're not for me to adore. The mess you made, Taking my life for granted, Leaving me in a barracade, You never knew how much you mented. I am in control. You're not Mr. Man anymore. I took back my control. How does it feel being cold, To lose it???

When She Looks at Me

With romance in the air she smiles and giggles.
With a moment of silence she can not stay still she wiggles.
Her eyes are beautiful like the sunset in the evening.
The most romantic thing is she won’t be leaving.
The end of the night is coming I don’t want her to depart.
Slowly she lies on my chest and counts the beating of my heart.
She counts and was in simple heaven and yawns.
I say to her it’s the weekend tomorrow to tighten the bonds.
She looks at me and says well it’s going to be a long night.
I go sure is hours past we talked till day light.
I awoke with the smell of breakfast in the air.
With me she knows my heart and stomach is the way it bare.
She shows her talent and she is aware.
That I am up to give the romantic stare.
Then she looks at me with lots of care.

"A brother ofended is harder to 
reach than a fortified city."
It seems like many brothers
 dwell on their "self-pity..."

Just look at how easy it is for most 
brothers to get offended.
It could be you or I...  Or someone
they've befriended...

Many stop having anything to do
 with a particular person.
They read God's word.  But fail to learn
 HIS divine lesson.

Jesus said; "Blessed are you when you're 
cursed, persecuted and despised."
So why do so many "brothers" hold
 "vengence in thier eyes?"

Is  there someone you know... 
Thay you've completely shut out?
Is this what being God's child...  
Is really all about???

If Christ really gave to us.  
What we certainly deserve...
Than his blood's atonement.  
Would not be perserved..

In spite of our sin and faults...  
God's heart bleeds...
He's so willing for forgive 
and to meet all of our needs!

Don't allow an offense to turn into
 a "huge brick wall."
Christ came to forgive...
 And to be a sacrifice for all!

Shhhhhhh

Oh, how I have loved my most honorable Thee,
You are so provoking and most enduring to me.
Ahhhhhhh, I shall just roll myself away.
Tumbled and tossed all over you today.
Oh, how I really do love Thee,
You are enchanting and you excite me.
“Shhhhhhh”! Maybe I should just go my way.
I am trifled and lost with yet another day,
Oh, how much I have truly loved only Thee,
You are captivating and you entwine me.
Ahhhhhhh, I shall just stop it for the day.
Oh, how I love only that one special Thee!
Zesty and sauced with just a par for a tee,
“Shhhhhhh” is all I can forever calmly say!

Texas Stars

Under the Texas stars,
far away from the cars...
I see them twinkling so bright.

I thought about You and I,
what we said that night...
as I held you tight.

You told Me, You'd be true,
I said I'd never leave You...
under those bright Texas stars.

We are in love,
I'm your man...
and you're my little dove.

I thought about You today,
while making hay...
and know we'll be O.K.

Think I'll see You tonight,
and hold You tight...
under these bright Texas stars.

So I pull on my boots and hat,
can't wait til we chat...
gettin' slick for my gal.

You look like an angel,
dancing the two step...
till the music fades under those Texas stars.
                                                                                  By Perri Voge  Texan Cowboy 2007

Love

When you think of love, 
You think the Knight and shining armor. 
The gallant steed at his side.
The charming smile.

You think of Prince Charming.

When I think of love,
I think of the kiss on the forehead.
The unexpected hug from behind.
That smile when you think I’m not looking.

I think of you. 

I may not be in love.
But I know I am loved.

You never know what life is going to do,

But at least I know I have you!

Snow

it was just white in my dream, in my sleep, in a pair of my closed eyes. then the cold ice falls in love with my eyes which never slept. i always find my eyelashes wet frost the dew on the grass, in the morning and evening. then the white color was also in love to my body. delightedly shower me, bathe my body. my body suddenly has a bathroom with a tub full of eternal white. and my memories swam in a huge plow. i do not know where will it go. you know, i always imagined snow coming your house, knocking on your door, a pair of your pinched cold eyes trying to look through the whit snow, watching me playing in the snow, alone. and you come along.

Memories of a Time long ago

	Tinkling like a thousand silver bells that is her
laugh. Then I hear the roar of lion as it announces
it is there reminding me why she left.
	Then I hear thunder booming with an eternally deep
voice. The pitter-pat and rat-a-tat-tat of rain on
windows, causes me to think back to when I cried
over my loss.
	But then sun comes out shining brightly warming my
face and I realize that I can move on things will
get better. 
I am forever engulfed by these 
memories.
I am forever engulfed by these 
memories.
These are my memories my life. I never thought the
rain would end but it does.

You Are My Beloved

You Are My Beloved And the Love Of My Soul… I am the rose of Sharon and the lily of the valley below… As the lily thrives among the thorns.. My love for you grows! As the apple tree lives amongst the other trees in the woods. My commitment to be with you is clearly understood. I’ve invited you to this banqueting table under a banner of love. Stay with me and comfort me. You’re a gift from God above! As I listen to your voice. May it leap from the mountain tops! In my heart… You’re more beautiful that the clearest raindrops! You spoke to me; “My love…” “Please arise.” I come to you and see the beauty in your eyes! My dove, you are in the cleft of the rocks. In a “secret place.” Let me see the beauty, that shines on your face! I shall always cherish and love you… Much more than you can give.... My love grows ever so deeper…. Each day you live! When the sun arises… And the shadows shall turn away. Your beauty arises! And brightens my life every day! Your beauty and wisdom is something to behold! You’re more precious to me than the purest gold! My love for you shall endure beyond the end of time! How I long to be with you! I’m so glad you’re mine! By Jim Pemberton 11/27/11 Read Song of Sol.

I Do

Admist the rocky mountains
And the natural springs 
Comes a better place I remembered things

under this lamp post is where
you first asked me to take 
your hand in marriage 

I remember you down on 
one knee and the snow was 
just starting to fall 

You looked like a little lost puppy 
looking for a way to speak I
took your hand and said yes

That was over twenty years ago
And to this date we still come back
to the Springs of Colorado and say I Do

Babycakes

Babycakes, I know you're sad and it makes my heart break. So, baby, please just put a smile on your face, And I'll wipe the tears away, Because its you and me against the world, no matter what they say. So, Babycakes, You know that I would do whatever it takes To show you that I love you, and that I am here to stay with you For the rest of my days, And there is nothing in this world that can take me away. Girl, I've got my sights set on you. I've got my heart stuck on you, And there is nothing that I can do To free my mind from this curse, The curse of loving you so much that it hurts. For better or for worse. So, cheer up, butter cup, don't let it get you down. I hope you know my spirits die every time you frown. Whatever you wish, I'll make it so. I'll do anything just so you don't Cry yourself a river, slip, fall in, and drown. So, smile, baby, and never stop. **** this world, cuz you're on top. Whatever happens, you'll be fine, So sleep at night with peace of mind, Oh, love of mine. <3

From My Mind To Yours

Her body lay listless but I saw her move.
When nothing happens, nothing do you lose?
With all in this world, she was all that's left.
I swear I sung to her but not a breath.

For I was mute with nothing to say.
My mind in a trance with no care for fate.
How long I thought would this silence last?
Compelled by her I had to steal a glance.

She still lay listless there she did stay.
From my crime, what price shall I pay?
But relief blew a sigh ending my dismay.
I seen her smile...for life was hard but all-in-all a good day.

I Knew You and You Knew Me

I knew you and you knew me.
Both of us could clearly see.
And with our inner sight divine. 
The meaning of our hearts.
I am very sure that we differ less.
 
I knew you and you knew me.
And each one knew his and her own self.
We could look each other in the face.
And see herein a truer grace.
That will make us function without struggle.

Look into my eyes.
You will see what you mean to me.
Search your heart.
Browse through your soul.
If you find me then you search no more.

Look into my hands.
You find there is nothing inside.
Take me as I am.
I will give.
I will sacrifice all.
Love is true.
Everything I do I do for you.

A boy and a Girl

Love is such a powerful thing to feel people tell teens you dont know what love is ..Your just full 
of out of control hormones. Its so much more than that. what adults dont understand is we 
would do anything to be with theone we so very much adore. Take my little story for example. 
A young independent girl starts falling for a much older guy. There is a four year span but they 
both think age is just a number. The boy tells this girl she is beautiful an gorgeous every waking 
minute he gets. he makes sure she is all in tact making sure she isnt falling apart because they 
cant see each other b/c of their amazing age difference. They talk to each other whenever they 
can. Everytime they hear each others voices they start falling for each other even more. They 
had a long talk about what they wanted to do to be together. They both decided that the girl 
would wait three years until shes of age. He keeps telling the girl hang in there b/c patience is 
always the best way to deal with this situation. They both talk about the great memories they 
already have experienced. The boy tells the girl she is amazing an worth the long, painful wait. 
He says we will make it through this little bump in the road. The end of the tunnel is far away 
but soon that light is going to shine as bright as it can an im going to run as fast as lighting 
strikes this earth an jump into my future with him. My future looks so bright an amazing with 
him. finishing highschool then college is near. But after my school days of highschool he is all 
mine. This guy an girl are going to wait for each other. In the mean time they are going to 
remember the good times an focus on the positive things. When the girl starts thinking 
negative the boy will tell her its all going to be over soon an a new beginning will come.

Moving On

Today I let go…..
Been in this situation to long so….
I’m letting you Go
Life has been a roller coaster and I don’t want to Ride
I feel the pain so deep and apparent I think I want to Hide
Not from shame… Life has a way of making us live thru things
I mean I was your wife, ain’t that what the ring means…..
I have to let you go though I now understand my worth
Got to focus on me now, trying to get rid of the hurt
So….. Today I let go and I let God handle all the rest
I have lived for you as long as I could, even gave you my best
But…. Today I let go!

Bright Blue Electricity

Bright blue electricity,
So beautiful those lights.
Shining starlight so lovely to gaze upon
When they ignite inside the cosmos.

Walk, walk in the moonlight,
Calming insight as it attracts my sense of sight.
Who knew I'd feel so free
In living my life with spirited might.

One kiss unto me.
My heart flutteringly takes flight.
Inspiring feelings 
Initiate graphite upon paper.

Wishing to again hold her tight,
To be in her life, yet fate has decided me
To continue to fight on
And to live with what's left of my lamplight.

Midnight Lily

When we are all alone
when we don’t know where to go
we need to overcome
the feet that trample us to the ground
 
Some will persist to stay
others will fall for everything
if they don’t stand for anything
 
if you live for me
I’ll always live
and if u die for me
I’ll live everyday for you
 
Midnight lily; you are trampled underneath
as they watch and stare
waiting for a passion something to let you live
come and see what you have
come and see what you have is me
 
if you hold on now more will come
…they promise you
but if you always hold on
love can be true
leaf turns to leaf
live it when you can
 
We all fall into grief
 not all the same
lets be strong and rise again
show them whom you are
mortal
 
if you live for me
I’ll always live
and if u die for me
I’ll live everyday for you
 
Midnight lily; you are trampled underneath
as they watch and stare
waiting for a passion something to let you live
come and see what you have
come and see what you have is me
 
if you live for me
I’ll always live
and if u die for me
I’ll live everyday for you
 
Midnight lily; you are trampled underneath
as they watch and stare
waiting for a passion something to let you live
come and see what you have
come and see what you have is me
 
it seems to get harder
everyday
but happy can’t be happy
without sorrow

Calming Breeze

Awaken my internal joy

As your soothing gentle winds

Hit my skin

I feel all the anger, restless and worries

Of life magically fade away

The air crisp and cool

Put the sky and my soul

Momentarily at peace

A deep breathe

Helps me appreciate

How truly blessed I am

Pain and struggle

I overcame

I wish more people

Could say the same

Forget the money and fame

I wish I could have

This tranquil feeling 

Everyday instead of just today

Music For The Deaf

Once in awhile, I get so low I can feel myself falling faster into the quick sand. In this case, your love is the pit in which I’m sinking. Can you not hear me crying out for help? Because, I swear I can’t do this on my own. I need you to pull me up.. I guess you don’t see that inside I’m all shook up. I’ll be better off without you, that way I can get myself up and dressed out of this mess. You use me for your own good, but what about my sanity? This lovesick melody that I keep singing to is tearing apart the innocence of me. If you can’t see that, then why do I keep on trying to catch up to you? You won’t have to hear about it anymore though, I’m done with what you made me out to be. I’m too good to be set up by a fool like you! You’ll see one day, my dear. This melody that had me dying inside, is nothing more than music to the deaf now! But, don’t worry.. Maybe, one day you’ll see.. Just Don’t come back to me.

Prophecy 1

A man will find one woman. and he will lay the fruit of his labor at the feet of the father and 
he will return with the portion given to him by The Most High..and he will gain great joy and 
pleasure in adorning this one Queen with this gift from God.
Scriptures reveal the weakness of the meek is the strength of timelessness
I feel the cool wind blow on me and as the strong sturdy oak..and sway and bend to the 
rhythm of the wind
Although I stand tall
I bend low
Earth is the Lord and the fullness there of
But I was planted in the garden..and given dominion over all I see
The Metraton kneeled to pay me homage
Not because I’m worthy
but because he loved me so
And I looked and could see the throne prepared for me
and from my inner bone..he molded a mate to be my companion and co-dependant
Some one I could tell of HIS greatness
And she could teach the youth
So his praise shall be in my mouth continually
Every Day the Night replaced..every Night that is revealed by the Day
Opens the seals..so I can know him as my own!
Know HIM as myself…and He will be.
Prophecy. Prophecy!!
Ya understand?
Yes, I will
Written in the Torah as Surah
What was written..Shall be.. ’cause  no word shall return to him void
For what echo returns different then how it was sent.   
I am the echo of his consciousness…   I must return filled with his redemption
With the resurrection…The reward…and revelation
According to the promise of the ages
He provides,  you hear?  
Come all ye children of God!!... Come out of your foreign ways..And submit to the Keeper of 
your soul
No weapon formed can prosper against your sincere trust and faith 
Walk and be not afraid... For no Atrocities shall come nigh unto thee
The lamb's blood on the door post...was the sign to pass me over Lord
And it could not snare me
It was I when there was none  only my blood can be the sacrifice…only my sin can bring 
curse to the world
People can’t you see and know…what is really going on
Who HE is…and who you are destined to be.. 
Ausar….Obatala… Adonai… Yahweh…El-Elyon…Elohim…Medhanie Alem….Jehovah
'Igzee'abihier, let Jah be praised

One True Valentine

He: his best friend died years ago,
his heart attacked him in 
	     April,
left him for dead,
but he’d fought his way back with
		time and
an expert cardiologist.

She: used to feel cold, semi-homeless,
		needy
				nervous
always craved a man’s 

approval, 	
attention
she never got.

But he scratched her back just so, 
and sometimes
her belly,
and brought her dinner, and treats
and toys (she never lacks for them now).

Once even some bling: a red 
heart, a blinking one,
to wear around her neck. 

Together they walk long walks
		around the block or
			down the beach.
They sniff the salt air and wade through 
sand and chase the	
sea-gulls, or
Crunch their way through dry leaves
		and earthy woods.

Now they sleep together, side-by-side,
her brown head nestled along his arm,
she gazes up at him with liquid yellow eyes.
They keep each other warm. She sighs contentedly, her look is adoration, such 
total love, something only a dog can give.

She’s his one true Valentine.

And he’s her Boyfriend, 

the One 

she’ll never forget.

I Want Someone To Love

I want someone to hold.
I want someone to have.
I want someone to talk to.
I want someone to keep me company.
I want someone to sing with me.
I want someone to share pure bliss with.

I want a saviour-like person.
I want a true friend.
I want a soul who I can find throughout all lives.
I want a friend who is of many of my own.
I want a bond where I'll never feel alone again.

I want a dream to come true.
I want a blend of all feelings.
I want a destiny worth fulfilling.
I want a life full of meanings.
I want a desire to be made real.

I want someone to always know how I feel.
I want someone to dance with.
I want someone to help me in my ordeals.
I want someone who is one of my ideals.
I want someone who makes me daydream.
I want someone who makes my hopes real.
I want someone who will keep me longing for more.
I want someone other than myself.

Trusting Jesus For The Right Person

Dear Jesus.  Help me to 
trust you and wait.
That in time.  You'll bring me
 the right mate.

Someday, I desire to have 
a family and a house.
But I'm confused when it comes 
to choosing a spouse.

When this is going to happen? 
 I do not know.
Teach me patience Lord. 
 I need it so!

Help me to choose someone. 
 I don't trust my flesh.
If I do... I could really end
 up in a "big mess."

Take control of my thoughts 
and what I want to say.
Conforming me to Jesus.  
In a more Christ'like way.

Till that special day.  When I'll wed
 and say "I do."
Help me Jesus to find a mate 
who's in love with YOU!

My Vow, Love Always & Forever

Love Always & Forever, 

for some that meant never, 

wondering if you'd ever stay together with this same person...

Cuz forever is a long time, and it all depends on 

whether or not your truly in love with this person 

Truly devoted to this person, willing to give so much of yourself

to another individual, is a dedication more intense and important than any other.

It's right up there in the same category as being a mother.

All I need to know is that your ready and willing to give us a shot

I'm not talking loving me for a day, a week, a month, I'm talking always and forever

A lifetime if you will, to be devoted to one another, to honor, trust one another

yes to love another as much as you love yourself.

For richer, for poorer, for better or worst health

I want to make this commitment to you more than anything else

I want you to respond by saying, "I do"

I don't want to say these words to anyone else

you're the only one I choose.

I'm making this pledge to honor, respect & cherish you and only you

As we hold hands, look into each others eyes and say our 'I do's'

Were making the promise to one another, saying...

"Always & Forever, I Will Love You"

Will You Let Me Sleep

Violet hues
Birds in flight coo's

Starburst fashion
Sun's hot passion

Crystal streams
Valleys of green

Sno-capped peaks
Eagles that speaks

Call of the wild
Echoes of a lost child

Can't seem to wake
From this dormate faith

Have no fear
For vision is  clear


Arrived at Heaven's shore
Was woken though by husband's dam snore

The Color Beautiful

I saw you just the other day.
You stood there all alone.
I watched as the Suns shadow beat down upon you.
Your eyes and mine were both hesitant at the glimpse of shade.
You stood so firm and adamant, 
Your posture was mine to admire and to please!
The color beautiful was everything that I had ever imagined it could be!
I could see the winds tousling through your flawless shiny hair,
A cool breeze tenderly caressing an unexpected stern face! 
You stood so tall. You were bigger than anything I had ever seen.
I watched you shiver as the cold draft reached from underneath bringing its sharpest autumn air.
You stood there completely impervious to time, person and to place.
The color beautiful captured hidden chills inside of me as I embraced that very same breeze.
I could feel the warmth of your breath upon me,
You stood there with a true look of total awareness.
I could no longer feel my heart quicken to beat, 
For I had lost every one of my God given perceptual senses.
I could feel your warmth covering over me baring my only gift to see.
You stood as a man with much honor and pride.
Such an obvious completeness!
The color beautiful instantly became everything in this world to me.
Because in your eyes you left no doubt that I am still your princess!

There's No I In You And Me

Oh you do the dishes
And I'll mop the floors

Or you can do the trash
And I'll do the sewing

You can go to work
And I'll just stay home

You do the cows
And I'll do the chickens

You cook the meals
And I'll set the table

For there's no I In you and me
Can't you plainly see

So you keep the house
And I'll keep the car

You keep the kids
And I'll pay the bills

You do the shopping
And I'll  sit still

You call the cops
I'll call the lawyers

For there's no I in you and me
Can't you plainly see


You run away

The Hurricane

The hurricane, so viscous, so violent!
Yes, it must rain.
This force is behind, 
This force beyond!
Yet, finally it came.
The winds, clever and dangerously rough,
Please measure this poll.
Dark clouds consume the heavenly skies, capturing ones soul.
With a love so hard, yet, a love much too cold!
Our world now spins, hopeless and out of control!
You are you and I am me,
Together, our climates capture and debate this Sea.
These winds are too strong, our sky so dark and dim.
Stricken with fear, too afraid to release what is deep within.
The storm is here, so grab onto your soul! 
Yet, beware! This one is fearless and this one we share.
Scream its name and it shall cry its love,
For it be you, far beyond the heavens above!
Hold your strength with a grip so tight,
That storm will surely break, so where’s your fight?
This hurricane can surely hold its own.
Our little world can and will be shown.
Our damage is as our damage does,
Surely this tiny world isn’t our just and only cause!
You hold that thought and forever we shall be,
True love bound and forbidden to set itself free,
Held within you and deep within me,
This love was meant forever, 
One day this you shall see!
This hurricane loves, yet, 
It wills to hate,
The forbidden fruit conquered by its very own fate.
Give your seeds, but stand your ground. 
Forever in this world!
For once we shall not be lost, but found.

Where Are Those Who Seek The Lord

I've heard of those who say they're "happy and gay."
Where are those who proclaim; 
"Jesus is the only Way?"

I've heard of many who 
discuss creation vs. evolution.
Where are those who proclaim 
Jesus is the solution?

I've heard of many who dicuss 
an "alternate lifestyle."
Where are those...who for Jesus...
 will go "the extra mile?"

I've heard of many who say; "Jesus isn't real!"
Where are those who'll confess HIM 
with a passion and a zeal? 

I've heard of thousands who
sit in their church's pew.
Where are those... whom to Christ... 
says; "I love YOU?"

I've heard of millions who
 are on their way to hell.
Where are those who truly love Jesus?  Can you tell???

I've also heard of a redeeming 
savior's  mercy and grace.
His love has been extended to the human race.

I've heard of a master's loving 
call and merciful plea...
He says; "take up your cross and follow me!"

I've heard of  true gladness
 and overwhelming joy!
This is freely offered to every man, 
woman, girl and boy!

I've heard that now is the day of 
salvation & the accepted time.
For I am his dearly beloved and he is mine!

I've heard that very soon..  
Jesus is coming again.
Where are those who desire
 to be cleansed within?

I know that an abundant life
 is what Jesus will freely give!
Where you can find true life...
and a reason to live!

Essance

her hair flows in the wind, feeling the mist on her cheek, the tears slowly seep, down that gorgeous face, only to be wiped away, by her lover so true, and she stares into the blue, desiring her heartache to go away, she kisses as they slide down the waves, embracing her softly, she scoops up her friend loftily, smiling in the light, makes her lover continue to fight, for every right to be her one true love, and singing to the sky above

My Rainbow

A modern day illusion A field of forever sunshine, Of forever happiness The sky so blue The air filled with flowers A land to call home Along the horizon a storm Black as emptiness My world was turned around The wind was swift The rain harsh Hail crashed to the ground Rays scattered the clouds The end was near I will shed one more tear A rainbow bright and true Stood against darkness I smile as I run to you Warm and full of joy You hold me dear I am home again

Welcome to Your Wife

If I were you for a day and you were me?
Could you love me more than I love you?
Would I love you more each day and be new?
Will the Sun shine bright in our eyes to see?
 
When will the Moon glow and lead our way to be?
When will the Stars shine bright by just us two?
Why does the dust give up its spurs on the dew?
Why are the doors locked with only one master key?
 
Welcome to my life,
Welcome to my home,
Welcome to your wife.
Welcome to this dome.
 
Welcome to the Sunrise this day in the light,
And welcome to the Sunset on this lovely night!

Palms by the Sea

Oh this Sea from left to right,
How my mind gathers your visions to my sight.
You clouds stray from over here to over there,
And my lungs fill deep as they gather you into my air.
I am the neutral zone with all of my love that I share
The “Palms by the Sea” give my visions their true light!
In each I can see myself inside of a seemingly height.
The Palms by the Sea are my only solemn oath I fight!
 Up inside of the tallest tree I shall surely come,
Your Earth, your Moon and your Sun I shall make them all come undone!
I am you as you breathe my life and it is your love that I shall proclaim in the moment I seize!
Up inside of you I am proclaiming my every single genuine need.
The “Palms by the Sea” guard the shores for my more, my all, or even none!

She Can See

She can see...
that he cries within
that his exterior edge
hides a lover from within.

She continues to see him
in a whole new light...
She loves him completely
and with delight.

She comforts him
and lets him know
that the past is the past
and that he should let it go.

She understands him freely
and she can trully see
what he is right now
and what he could be.

She sees him and she knows him...
and she sees that he cries within...
and that his tough exterior
hides all the hurts within.

She knows she holds the keys
to unlocking all his doors...
to unfolding his mind...
to making him more...

And she knows him almost better
than he used to know himself...
because she sees his image
reflected in herself.

And she knows that he knows her
better than she thought...
and the fact he knows her better
than she knows herself
makes her love him all the more...

And he knows that she loves him...
more with each passing day...
He knows that shes been waiting for him...
for all of her earthly days.

Are You Keeping Bad Company

Remember bad company 
corrupts good morals.
So be careful when "hanging 
around the fellows."

What may sound to be 
pleasant and fun.
May cause your spiritual 
life to become undone.

The truths of God's word 
which you now instill.
Are guarding your conscience 
and your will.

God loves you and doesn't want 
you caught unaware.
For he is somebone who 
really does care.

If the company you keep
tends to pull you down.
Allow God's word to plant 
your feet on solid ground.

God will give you happiness 
this world could never give.
He will be by your side 
each day that you live.

May people around you 
certainly know,
You're Christ' example--
no matter where you go!

Flowers in my hair

Begging dear mama
Please Please can I go hah hah

If your papa says yes
Then I must confess

Your mama says no

love

until you give it, you will not see it 
you quite simply will not 
oh, you can want it 
but ‘want’ is a form of ‘take’ 
and you can never take, to have -- except for anger and money 
that kind of want you can easily achieve 
“Give and take” has been a lie to you 
a practice you accept for a phrase you once heard 
no. . . you will not. . . ever. . . get this by wanting 
you want this? 
you gotta give this 
this one ain’t no passing by occasion 
first time you tried, you wanted – fair enough 
there ain’t no next after that 
you got the lesson when you kindergarten’d somewhere in your teens 
no in between. . . here 
no amount of years can pass 
no guarantee that if you didn’t pick it up then. . . you will someday 
listen. . . read well 
until you stop wanting 
you will not get, giving 
you will be without love.

Forever-Part 3

We get off the plane and smell the lovely air. Hawaii. One of the most beautiful places. I look at you and smile. "This place is beautiful," I say, spinning around. "Yes, it is," you say and pull me close. "I love you," I say. I love you too," you say and kiss me. Hand in hand we walk into the setting sun.

The sun's poking through the shades in our room. "Good morning beautiful," you say when I open my eyes. "Good morning," I say and smile. "I've got a surprise for you," you say and smile. I look at you questionably. "Just get dressed and I'll show you." "Okay."

You take my hand and lead me down to the beach. "I heard you've always wanted to do this," you say and smile. You point to two goals. My face lights up. "Sand soccer," I say happily and look at you. You kiss me and smile, "I figured you'd like it." We walk down to the two goals and we'r e put on a team. We play for hours and hours.

When the game is over, we sit on the sand by the shore. "That was fun," I say and look at you. "Yeah, it was," you say and lean in and kiss me. "I love you," I say as you warp your arms around me. "I love you too," you say and smile. We watch the sun set on the beautiful sea before we head back to our room.

The next day we surf. We surf for hours. "This is great baby," you say as we sit on our boards. "Yeah," I say and smle, "you must really like doing this," I say and brush a srand of hair from your face. "Yes," you say and you lean in and kiss me.

Never-Never Land

I stare out into this huge blue Sea,
And the waves, well, they just carry me.
My mind drifts so far away,
Because the Ocean is where I lay!
I’m off to never-never land once again,
So take my hand and let this journey begin!
I listen carefully to the Oceans roar,
The waves, well they just help me soar.
My mind relaxes with my day,
Because the Ocean is where I always lay!
I’m off to never-never land on a hunch for so much more,
So take my hand and let’s find new places we can both explore!
I can see blue water with big fluffy white rolls,
Waves, well they just capture my entire soul.
My mind just helpless with my day,
Well, it is the Ocean where I lay!
Off in never-never land I can always see,
A gigantic Ocean covering over me!
Far away in never-never land near the Ocean is where I always lay.
Lifeless in the sand is where I’ll always be.
So take my hand and be lifeless with me in the sand.
Together, just you and me on our journey to never-never land,
Just lifeless in the sand, together you and I and always we’ll be hand in hand!

New Years Eve Party

Long ago
On New Years Eve,
My life was forever changed
Touched by love and desire,
As it snowed that night
So long ago...

By beauty so great,
I've never forgotten it,
And the best thing is,
That now I know,

She is fine and well,
And lo and behold,
She remembers me,
And now I can tell...

Her of why
My actions made no sense...
Human beings often illogical,
Some of us just seem so very dense

She knows the whys now,
And I thank God she does,
I am blessed  it came to pass,
My mind is now relieved,
Before I've seen my last.

1 Corinthians 13 The Love Chapter


Though I may speak with the tongues of angels and men… Without God’s love, I am empty within. I’d become as sounding brass and a tinkling cymbal. In God’s kingdom, I would not be instrumental. Though I may have the gift of prophecy and mysteries untold… Without God’s love, I am just simply growing old. Though I may have the faith to move a mighty mountain… Without God’s love, I am simply an “empty fountain.” Though I may attempt to do good and feed the poor… Without God’s love, there’s nothing worth living for! His love suffers long, and is very patient and kind. It is everlasting and will endure the test of time. His love is not rude nor is easily provoked… It doesn’t seek evil, nor is unequally yoked. His love bears, hopes and endures all things. It rejoices in whatever a good report brings. It never fails, where prophecies and knowledge shall pass away. His love will encourage you in what you do and say. There remains faith, hope and a special gift from above. This is an eternal gift that we call his love. Won’t you accept his gift and start believing? This special gift… YOU too can be receiving! By Jim Pemberton Read 1 Cor. 13 1-8 and 13

The Center of the Core

Walking these streets, wet or cold,
We run fast and reach for our all or more.
The corner we meet, daring and bold.
At last, I have found what I was looking for.
Taking you deep into the night, dark but very clear,
We’re dancing so sweet and wanting for more.
The corner we fight, bracing our lack of fear.
Still a Mountain of depths for us to explore!
Bringing you up for your only air, brisk but bittersweet.
Breathing fast and needing some of your more,
The corner we share, honest and complete.
At last, I’ve found the center of the core!
Giving my life to live with your air freshly anew,
Swimming with strife reaching for the only shore,
The corner we give, our hopes are that of few,
And still haven’t found that sweet nectar that I’m looking for!

"Always and Forever"

When I was young
I used to dream
what is love
what could it mean
I used to fantasize
the perfect mate
then I realized
I had to wait
for this dream
to come true
for my heart
to find you
it wasn't easy
and I got hurt
there were times
when it didn't work
I would either cry
or feel so down
I wanted to die
than be around
I wanted to run
just disappear
I felt I was done
I gave into fear
but one day
it came to my surprise
I found myself
looking in your eyes
it felt so different
it felt so right
like heavens angels
golden light
I knew I had to try again
I knew you were my other half
I knew your heart I had to win
I knew you were what I wanted to have
you're the reason
I never lost hope
you're the reason
I still go
You will always be my special one
we'll always stick together
cause I love you baby
always....and...forever...

The Winter Flower

I picked a flower yesterday,
It was a beautiful shade of pink,
Thinking of you in my way,
Wondering what you would think.

I know not what kind,
Small and delicate as it was,
Beautifully designed,
I put it in a vase.

It wont last,
Flowers never do,
It will wilt fast,
But not my love for you.

Quiet Attraction

‘Quiet attraction, you’re overwhelming elegance;

all I could do was sit there,

blushing could you tell?

No chance in moving just to re-think.

The wanting of being elsewhere,

I needed one more look before I left;

got the feeling you wanted that too.

Sadly just to many people blocked the way,

turned around, head down due to having no view of you.

Will next time be more difficult?

Awkwardness in a room full of people,

now your work colleagues becoming aware,

it is not so quiet now.

Making tales in my head,

multiple versions of the way we could meet

but need of seeing you someplace else without eyes watching,

without the heat of embarrassment waiting,

for these thoughts to be said.’

A Wife's Job

To love her man through his ups and downs

To always show her man she cares and she’ll always be there.

To forgive him when mistakes are made.

To always listen when he speaks his mind.

To show a women’s love isn’t hard to find.

A woman so true to the end.

You are the kind of wife a dude can really run too.

That’s why as your husband I’m always and truly will love you.

OVERrated SEX

First off, let me start off with an open statement
 
Let's not be naive anymore, sex before marriage is OVERrated
 
Your flesh takes OVER ya spirit, but he already came OVER your house
 
and now after u gave OVER your goods, he already wants out
 
but rewind.....the SEX is OVER so what's next?!
 
the dude who was all OVER you says that "friendship" is best?
 
the same dude that was in your bed cOVER 5 minutes ago
 
I bet he looks at you differently now, he pegged you as a h.....
 
and you know that aint true, but your mind is OVERclouded,
 
so now you question your worth in this world...yeah you OVER doubting
 
 
and now you contemplating OVER AND OVER again you dont know what went wrong
 
You gave a piece of your soul to him....consider it dead and gone
 
your mind is OVERloaded from all the guilt and pain
 
You wish you could do it OVER again, but this time it would change
 
please realize
 
You too beautiful to be going through all the stress and strain
 
 
You thought he was the one, thought he was your lOVER
 
but now he's OVER you....and he's on to another
 
you don't really need this , your life is torn in pieces
 
it's not too late beautiful, give your life OVER to Jesus
 
he would never hurt you, he would never take your soul
 
he'll take your emptiness away, he'll make you whole; OVERflow
 
YOU have the power to OVERcome, be cOVERed in his blood
 
you need a makeOVER so get cOVERed in his love
 
God will OVERride your sin, cause flesh was OVER you
 
so go ahead and repent for your sexual ways....it is long OVERdue

There is magic, within your eyes.

Wild horses gallop, as yourself, you be.
A painting upon a wall, is thy beauty,

Exhilaration

I contemplated self-mutilation
amongst the company of mutations
that were causing my heart starvation.
This is my mind's translation,
a proclamation, a deep introspective cogitation.
Marriage is in abrogation, it's a cancellation
that's been suffering from dehydration,
indignation, and mind-game infestation.
The hospital stay only lead to his dissipation,
my dedication desecration of him and our condemnation.
Here, here. Take this medication,
Talk to doctors about my desperation, oscillation, dissociation.
Came back to the outside and inhaled a monstrous inhalation
of fresh air and computations, correlations and speculation.
I became cursed with perturbation,
wondering why the perforation
of this operation was ripped into a malformation.
Then came the acceleration of meditation
to begin a new foundation and self-preservation.
The separation lead to a cosmic epiphanized revelation
and the pissing and purging of him out of my characterization.
Now comes my mind's decontamination,
a simplification of sterilization.
It was all a massive misinterpretation of ramifications,
but I'm learning this discontinuation
is a process of my soul's sanctification,
regeneration, and harmonization.
Congratulations...
to me on my amelioration.

Let's throw some junk on a wall
And call it art.
Let's act like we don't think miles
A part.
Let's say that we ain't losin' nothin'
Lookin for somethin'.

I don't wanna be alone no more.
You know how this life 
Is such a bore.
And I think two wrongs can make it
All right
Tonight;
Let's play pretend.

I bet if we fake it
We'll make it
Yiou be a different boy
I'll be a different girl
We'll live in a different world
Together, 'til the end.
Let's play pretend.

I'd say
The real world's getting old
(Pretty damn fast, too)
we got nothing to crash into--
Except each other.
Let's ditch all the good advice.
Let's keep it real.
Does that sound right?
We've got make-believe dreams to mend.
Let's play pretend...

Let's throw some junk on a wall and call it art.
Let's say that you hold the key to my heart.
How 'bout we say there's something there
When there isn't...

Treasure Hunt

You were here such a long time ago.
I knew you not nor did I have a clue.
I was just a silly giggly little fool.
Days passed by until the Sun set too low.
So I memorized the Stars at night watching them glow.
I’d swear I’d never have believed you much less knew.

Until, I went back into the past and chased the future ahead.
That’s when I saw the trails and the paths lain from before.
Some were laid in gold, others silver, even diamonds and lead.
The Sun struck down on them and they shined even more.
It was obvious by the color of branches in the trees that were dead.
I could taste the honeydew trickling down my lips feeling my heart of hearts.
I chased the birds and plucked a feather of a white dove just for you.
I ran along the Sea shores and the Oceans belched a many a roar.
Salt on my lips and free with the wind I knew I wanted more.
The Moons beams shined down on me so I followed the shore.

I found seashells and rocks of all kinds and saved them all.
I even cleaned them up and gave names to a few too small.
The Stars began twinkling brighter here and there.
I watched them naming a few and one I made mine.
Then I found the Mountains and how tough they fair.
I rock climbed the highest ones and drew myself a line.

I saw the snow fall and watched it melt.
I just can not tell you in words how that felt.
I ran through the fields and the prairies took my breath.
I was alive inside just feeling my best, there was no death.

The rains came pouring down watering the splendor grass.
Thunders and lighting's all came in a great big flash.
I’m alive inside and just feeling great.
Passing through time I can never be late.

On plated trails of past, present and future I am so alive.
It’s a treasure hunt of buried beauties buried deep inside.
And each vibrantly strives simply to thrive.
And each one seeks where you hide.

Our Garden

Working in our garden, 
The tiller so loud,
It is the season,
And the rows are plowed.

As the soil is turned,
So are my thoughts,
Thoughts of you are churned.
The noise is naught.

Just the sound of my heart beating,
Longing for you by my side.
Planting our garden, seeding,
With plants and veggie’s with pride.

And with our love,
A love that grows stronger,
As if made from above,
With each passing day,

It is you that I love.

The Keeper

I was washed ashore with Mountains looking over me and I could hear roaring Seas.
The sand covered me and my toes curled with sand dollars by the dozens.
I saw dolphins gaming and fish were everywhere, I even met their distant cousins.
The Sun was shining down on me and the Moon was jealous but the clouds gave way.

And I looked up to see the Stars shining and they told me it’s a most perfect day.
Salted lips and these palms fanned, I knew right then I was meant to be.
I stood alone at the shore and blue skies fled taking notice of little old me.
I was touched and moved balancing these visions I began to breathe.

I thought I was by myself, but I wasn’t, not this time.
Looking up I say leave me alone, be gone I’m on my own.
Looking down I am amazed at how truly this is so sublime.
You are the keeper of my secrets and I am of all the unknown.

Shining down upon me you are always standing right there,
Here I shall share myself with you and then I will begin to care.

How I Feel About You

     Whenever I think of you I believe an Angel is by my side, and with your love you send
me on a roller coaster ride.
      
     You set me free like an eagle too the air, and you are a Nubian Queen and no woman
shall ever compare.
      
      The thought of looking in your eyes sends me down a river of peace, and feeding off
your love everything will be a wonderful feast.
      
       When I hold you tightly in my arms it feels like I’m floating on air, and because
finding a love like this is truly rare.
      
       The softness of your lips that speaks soft words is like music too my ears, and
when ever I feel afraid I know my angel will be there to help me face all my fears.

      So stand by me like an army to war, and I live for you and you only forever more.

Tommy

Tommy

It's late at night
Before the sun rises.
And I know you're home
Safe and sound.

I think about you,
Dream about you,
Whenever you're away.
For it is your heart's love
I hope I have found.

Before we met-
I knew no other
With such intensity,
Such a soul.
But now that I know you,
Now that we've met,
I know that I'm not alone
In this world so dark and cold.

Your smile
Brings me pure joy.
Your arms
Give me strength.
You're that perfect combination
Of man and boy.

Before you
I was never truly in love.
It was always just
Infatuation
With nameless faces
And empty hearts.

But now I know
What it means
When one says
one's "In Love"
For all I have to do
Is look into your eyes..
And see LOVE
Looking back at me.

Thank you, Tommy...   Love, Elena

My Buttercup

smooth fashion eyes flashing
girls wanting love passion
guitar talking fingers walking
such a cutie
glad I'm his beauty

center stage screaming rage
girls dancing in nearby cage
ya

Let's give it up
Let's give it up
hold me closer now
I can hardly breath
Let's give it up
Let's give it up
for the one
the only one 
my sweet buttercup

my sweet buttercup
my sweet buttercup
my sweet buttercup
my sweet buttercup
my sweet buttercup

illuminating eyes 
makes me sigh
other girls shouting
even some pouting
so glad I'm at his outing

For I'm so into him

Let's give it up
Let's give it up
hold me closer now
I can hardly breath
Let's give it up
Let's give it up
for the one
the only one 
my sweet buttercup

my sweet buttercup
my sweet buttercup
my sweet buttercup
my sweet buttercup
my sweet buttercup

Endlessly

Endlessly
   by Amy Swanson 


Take my hand and teach me
what I do not know - 

Touch my lips and kiss me,
I'll follow where you go.

Tell me that your heart is mine;
I'll give mine to you.

Show me of your loyalty,
I'll be forever true.

Warm my soul so tenderly
when bitter cold winds blow;

Help me believe I'm beautiful
even when we're old.

Love me, dear, not just for now,
but all eternity

Not a weekend, not a day,
but always... endlessly.

My Little Girl Who Had No Clue

Mt little girl who had no clue
lately when I look at you
My heart wonders
If your love holds true

Your stares at other guys passing by
In their Lexus BMW's and Limo rides
Can't you see I love you
For theres no other
I swear this is true
For my heart only belongs to you

My little girl
Who had no clue

Come here girl
Let me hold you
Like I used to do
Let me wisper in those ears
I love only you
Don't push me away
For my heart will be blue

My little girl
Who had no clue

I'm begging and pleaing
For I know theres
No other like you
Come take my hand
And let's say I do

My little girl
Who had no clue





Another song working on 
Let Me know what ya think

Away So Far

We will be all smiles,
When we finally get together,
We will make our time worthwhile,
No matter what the weather.

We will make our dreams come true,
This we would allow,
It would be so great,
To be, with you now.

That will be another day,
There’ll be no parting us,
True love will come our way,
As we wanted, each of us.

Let me look into your eyes,
So lovely that they are,
Let me tell you that I love you,
Away so far.

Love bites

How often do mine eyes
walk the crevices of your face,
as you lie there peacefully sleeping?
Listening to your rhythmic nasal breathing,
as your body gently stirs
in midst of dreams.
My love for you surprises me,
each day not thinking it possible
to love you more -
but I do.

Two Hearts Joined Together

There’s a candle flickering next to me,
I look into the flame to see what I can see.
It is you my love just as it should be,
Never any other it is meant for we.

Two hearts joined together,
One soul that we are,
Never any other,
Though we are far.

Someday to be,
Never to part,
It will be we,
To have a new start.

Corner-Stoned

Bowing down for this subtle borrow in trade, 
My head just pounds with an ache just throbbing away.
My thoughts gathered and crunched with a million bits and pieces of the obvious.
But lots of unnoticed empty space!
You are there and I am here. 

Calculating, analyzing and specifying such fine details that are completely misplaced.
Never bending and never-ending our minds spin wheels like bulked bails of rolling hay.
If I shouldn’t, then I couldn’t, and if I couldn’t, then I wouldn’t.
But I’d never say that I didn’t outrun that race.
Angled in time leaning straight forward with those hands turning mine,

I’m catching up to our dawning of today.
The Sun has risen above our dark blanketed night.
Taking the shadows that linger with my soul’s final debate,
The Moon stands corner-stoned guarding glares that glow over darkness,
Veiling off your sights that radiate!
You say this and I say that.
But a compromise is far from this archer’s perfect aim targeting at my hindsight.

You’re always right, 
But so am I justifying boundaries to your realistic reasoning for my analyzed why.
Following you, following me,
We are all that we will ever be.
My night becomes the next day and your day becomes the next night.
Like spinning merciless on a merry-go-round,
My own mind has to question the who, what, and where am I.
Challenged by my own self-defeat, 
I’m corner-stoned with so many of those that have lost to a forgotten lie.
Defeated by my own self-lack to compete, 
You’re corner-stoned with so many years of albeit, 
So I’ll defy and you justify!

True Love

Oh how I long to hear your voice,
So sweet, so sensual, so loving too.
Being with you is not my choice,
It is what God meant us to do.
We will be together,
When the time is right,
We will love each other,
With each passing night.
Your love, my love,
So very real,
Made in the heavens above,
By the one that knows how we feel.
So never forget my love for you,
Eternal love, lasting love,
Love that is found to be true.

Reunion Road

Let's take a walk in the pouring rain 
We should be happy bear no shame 
Let's hold hands, let people stare 
Let's value every minute we can share 
There is a new life so I'm told 
It all starts down Reunion Road 
Life is as good as life can be 
It's time we raised a family 
We can have a girl and a boy 
Call her Julie, call him Roy 
There is a new life so I'm told 
It all starts down Reunion Road 
We will dig a hole out front and plant a tree 
Watch it grow with our family 
We can sit on the front porch and sip on tea 
Just imagine our peace, love and harmony 
Our dreams are waiting so I'm told 
It all starts down Reunion Road 
I still need to find this dream girl of mine 
I pray to the man, he assures me that in time 
He tells me we will both know it right when we meet 
Maybe at church, or passing in the street 
It will be a true act of fate 
My patience is strong, but it's so hard to wait 
We will walk hand in hand, never let go 
It all starts down Reunion Road

Subtle Changes

Restful naught amiss,
Sublime whence once was,
With calm and bliss,
Lacking in our cause.

Flung into a sea of ecstasy,
Immense in every way,
Tell, pray tell, how can this be,
When melancholy thoughts fill the day.

Thoughts  console,
Remorse naught abounds,
Enthrall mine soul,
Music all around.

Summon grandeur,
Agility of life,
Subtle changes allure,
Will you be my wife?

My Saint

You shield my soul, you are a saint
Joy to my heart you surely bring
You hold me near when I feel faint
This is far from just a bodily fling
This love we en masse can force my soul to sing.

My Peace of Mind

My life is Hell until I’m with you
Your pretty face,
the friendly place inside your arms
My saving grace is you
I need you more than words can say
I love you more than poems can tell
You’re the only thing that saves me from my Hell 
When you’re gone, 
I cannot breathe
When you’re near, 
I’m so relieved,
and I can be happy once again
My mind races numb and dull through the week
When you’re away,
I am so weak
You are the strength I need to live
You are the one I need to see
Everything is alright when I’m with you
The sun can shine
The world’s fine
You are one of a kind,
and manage to bring much needed peace to my mind
You give me confidence
You are my providence
The world makes sense when I’m with you
You make me smile, 
help me know what it means to live
I give my heart to you
You’re the only one that gets me through life

High On My Sweetie Pie

 
When the day seems, to linger,
from time spent, on what to do.
I can't help but be smiling, for there's,
someone who gets, me through.

No need for artificial stimulation,
to help me cope, or to keep me high.
All I need to keep me going, are the, 
beautiful thoughts, of my sweetie pie.

With every thought, my heart, skips a beat,
and my face, becomes a glow.
I can't help, but feel this way,
for I truly, do love, her so.

For she, is my all and all,
I become steady, for she, is my rock.
Because of her, I can, do anything,
while out here, working, around the clock.

And when I do, see her in person, there be tears, 
of joy, from the happy tears, I have cried.
Knowing full well, how blessed, I was,
to have, her there, always, by my side.

Sometimes Losers Win

Don't happen too often,
That is for sure,
When losers come up winners,
After years of failure to endure,
Like me finding someone,
I'd so desperately seeked,
For countless odd years,
With failure I reeked...
But somehow,
for some reason why...
Today was the day
When my luck was sky high...
When suddenly before me,
A picture I saw,
Was a great love of my life,
In great awe I now swore,
To believe in miracles,
And question no more...
The truth of God's mercy,
I'd never doubt anymore.
