The Wind

You are like the wind

Gently guiding me by while barefoot on a beach
No matter how far, I’m always within its reach

Pushing me through rough seas like a sail
With you mountains are nothing to scale

Like the wind comes great change
And all begins to rearrange

You force the snow to sting my face
Foot prints in the sand you erase

You slow me down
Mountains still all around

I wait for your storm to pass
With each half full glass

But behind every storm
Lies a sunrise to keep me warm

In that light I shall lay
Because long I have waited for this day

One Night Stand

Correction correction I wasn't looking for affection
Just trying out a line, I usually get rejection

When you said yes, I was taken by surprise
You really don't have those dreamy eyes

You fell in love with my words, not with me
It could have been anyone, can't you see

Yes I took you home, and we got busy
But surely baby, you don't make me dizzy

Yes you're nice and look mighty good
Don't get your feelings misunderstood

What we had was a night of pure bliss
We never even had a passionate kiss

Don't get upset when I have to leave
Not looking for love and I won't deceive

Tonight was special but I could have been any guy
So here is a parting hug, thanks, and good bye

I'm Going Away

I’m going away for a while
Life seems to have stolen my smile

Some of you I will miss so much
Maybe later we’ll get in touch

In Cyprus my daughter I'll see
T'will bring joy to sorry old me

I won’t have much time to be here
But some of you I’ll still hold dear

I seem to have lost some desire
Due to the mishap with the “fire”

Not so proud of what I have done
So I’ll escape to have some fun

My heart is made of marshmallow
Bruises by gal or by fellow

Don’t worry, it’s just for a time
Maybe later I’ll try to rhyme

But for now, it is surely goodbye
Hope to see you all by and by.

Goodbye Granddad

Gravity pulls my tears into pools.
Im sinking in sorrow -emotional fuels. 

Just turn back the time, I just want a moment. 
To say goodbye once, to cherish and own it. 

I loved my granddad - a man more than great.
Paired with my Granny as the perfect mate. 

A montage of memories that rush my soul.
My eyes fill with tears, I'm losing control. 

Just keep it together, it's what he would want. 
They all say the same, but I stand in front. 

Happiness swells, yet sadness prevails.
Like Christ on the cross, with hands full of nails. 

Life has a reason, and death isn't treason.
-It's moving on up.. A lifetime's a season. 

I look to the sky and say my goodbye.
The time won't turn back, I gave it a try. 

I close my eyes and imagine this-
Paradise in a place full of bliss. 

World peace in a piece of the world.
Without loss and bombs never hurled. 

Snow that falls that doesn't freeze.
Sun that shines that doesn't cease. 

A land where "The forever" is real.
A scene where the sick always heal.

Life with infinite love, like gusts in the wind.
Two little doves, with eternities to spend. 

God has a plan, fool-proof to the core. 
Now Granddad's with him, a reward of much more. 

-Yours Truly

My Perfect 10

If I picked my Valentine
she'd be a perfect 10.
She'd have blonde hair with highlites
and answer where and when.

She'd be a little shorter,
yet tall enough to kiss.
Her reach a little longer
to torture us in bliss.

Her shape would be the bomb.
As sexy as they come.
With hair up for the moment
I'd meet her at the prom.

She'd talk a little faster
with words I'd say are smart.
Yet keep me to attention
in hugs up to my heart.

A smile just like a lion.
Her face a source of pride.
One to show my mother.
And then to make my bride.

My Valentine was perfect
as I lost her way back then.
How was I to know that she
would find her perfect 10.

Time to say goodbye

How do you say "Goodbye" to a friend
How do you realise her life had to end

What a huge gap you leave which will never be filled
Remembering your smile your manner so mild

I will remember you with fond memories, Castle wont be the same
Remembering our bingo jaunts a fortune to attain

The curb you put on my spending
Whilst waiting  for bingo to begin *

"Now Seren"'  you would say just £5 each to start
We wont bother with this and  that  

I used to laugh saying ok 
sneaking another in when she looked away

The time i won seven hundred pounds was so funny you see
I just calmly pressed the claim button, she yelled like a banshee

Thinking it was maybe a hundred wasnt that impressed
Til i saw it was much more than i had ever guessed

Your with your folks now Betti you have missed them so,
We will all get through this with  you watching us, I know.

Hwyl fawr Betti oeddech yn ffrind da, bydd yn methu  ti
goodbye Betti you were a good friend, will miss you so.

*. Can play slot boards at Castle Bingo Hall whilst waiting for session to start.

Costs 50p -£1 a game.

Betti was same age as me, diagnosed, tumour on lung 10days before she died, Left it too late to get help.  

Funeral today at 12.30

The prison of the keys

And now I've lost my papers,
My passport and my wife,
The very essence of
My identity and life.

My bank account is empty,
My cloths and garments sold,
My skin and bones are ashes,
Spread thin on the open road.

My old car's broken down,
No wheels to touch the floor,
The motor been dismantled,
Stripped clean down to the core.

The bailiffs and the policemen,
Have emptied my abode,
The promises I made you,
Have been auctioned out and sold.

The love I hold within me,
Is all that I now have left,
The rest is bleak illusion,
The bind man and the deaf.

The imaginary people ,
I thought were my friends,
Have left the scene forever,
As the road of life does bend.

And now I stand alone,
Upon this lonely hill,
I gaze upon the meanings,
The years have silently killed.

In the roaring storms of thunder,
In the lightning in the night,
In the whispering of the children,
In the white doves lonely flight.

In the dust of many ages,
That has settled on my soul,
In the ashes of my humanity,
That has filled my begging bowl.

The ancient breeze is blowing,
Calling me to my knees,
To behold the light within me,
In the prison of the keys.

My Escort is gone

Days are long and nights are short.
To last through time I will need an escort.
But yesterday I heard the news
my escort is gone, to heaven he flew.

I saw the feathers from his wings fell
in the lonely nights did time love to dwell.
Even so, I still need him nevertheless 
though I know he's there, giving me his bless.

It's easy to walk with a pair of legs,
to fly with wings, not some wooden pegs.
The flesh was raw but now it has rot
with attempts to untangle this strangled knot.

I am in pain, in severe pain
and all this sadness do I wish to feign.
But he is gone, everything is gone.
Hopefully I'll live to see the upcoming dawn.

WHERE FROZEN EMBERS STILL BURN

For twenty-one years our love was tied
The one person in whom I'd confide
God knows we had a beautiful ride
You were my bride

Traveled together, we saw the world
We dreamed on the stars all unfurled
Life was a dance we gave it a whirl
You were my girl

In early morning we'd listen to chimes
Back door open we'd love these times
We were a poem with perfect rhymes
You were my greatest lines

Everything now births a fresh memory
Begging God for peace to let it be
Slipped from earth you're finally free
Still always you and me

Life feels so crushingly cold.. It's stern
Separated now by this blizzard's churn
What's happened leaves a heart's yearn
Inside.. where frozen embers still burn

*Yesterday my sweet sister passed into eternity.  This poem is from her husband's 
perspective as he's shared stories.  (We drove 13 hours yesterday so please forgive 
unanswered soup mail)

Contest: Gail's "Where Frozen Embers Still Burn"

Jada Mortensen

And so she was the girl from Bair.
With ocean eyes and golden hair.
Of heavy heart and light despise
Of cupid's dart and winter's cries.
There came a day when things did end.
Around the corner of the bend
There came a truck and in dispair
The loudest word was spoken there.
And so she left to who knows where.
Whilst many cried because they cared.
She roams around in circles too,
And whispering winds and skies of blue.
We raise our glass towards the sky
And smile a memory although she died.
No tears tonight, not ever one.
For there she rests inside the sun.
She is okay we know for sure.
In better days to now endure.
And so she was the girl from Bair
With clemency; a heart so fair.
And as we lay in bed and sigh,
I'd like to say to you Goodbye.

Rest In Peace Best Friend

Nothing Under My Bed

Daylight hours too, 
Can be insidiously cruel.
I'm sunshine on a cloudy day, 
And I'm nobody's fool.
My manners will last longer, 
Than any pain he can bestow. 
The lessons from my intimates, 
Outlive the insults he can throw.
There are still rainbows 
Where my heart beats.
Look! He is walking 
up the wrong street

For I am no longer his home
And I am numb no more.

GOODBYE

The leaves are crying 
Winter takes charge

The daylight is gone 
Quietness takes place

The church bell is ringing goodbye 
Angels are singing welcome

The time is getting high 
Check out what is left behind 

So quicker than thought 
Yet a life is gone 

Everyone will go this journey 
Time unknown to anyone is the reason for this goodbye in tears

If I should wake

Every night I try to sleep I lie awake tired and weak I dread waking the next day with fear it will end the same way.Then when I can see your face my life stops flowing as a disgrace my life blossoms like a flower praying together another hour.I bid farewell to you my friend. For the poem this is the end

How I Tried On Valentine's

How I tried on Valentine's
all over the many years.
I've lost all of my Valentine's
and most of them in tears.

How I tried on Valentine's
to find my merry mate.
Working through the ugly
and possible first-rate.

How I tried on Valentine's
Forgetting all my failures.
Moving to the next one
oblivious of the bailers.

How I tried on Valentine's
to settle for much less.
Hoping that the next one
Would change and reassess.

How I tried on Valentine's
to go the other way.
Hoping that they'd chase me
finding me as clay.

How I tried on Valentine's
to say what's on my mind.
Shouting out my arrogants
and baiting the wrong kind.

How I tried on Valentine's
to make a friend at first.
Only to be shunned again
by girls who want you worst.

How I tried on Valentine's
to wait for the right time.
Left to find my girl
on another's dime.

How I tried on Valentine's
to spin a small milk bottle.
Landing on a stranger
foreign without throttle.

How I tried on Valentine's
to meet up with a bore.
When all she kept on talking 'bout
was nothing and no more.

How I tried on Valentine's
coveting one man's wife.
Only to release her
sharing in man's strife.

How I tried on Valentine's
Loving her full body.
Finding that she had no mind
and wished she had a hobby.

How I tried on Valentine's
Waiting to make love.
Ending up with others
When push came into shove.

How I tried on Valentine's
Seeking out a hottie.
Making me a sickly boy
who's doctor now called naughty.

How I tried on Valentine's
Expecting an easy date.
Getting just the opposite
but figuring it too late.

How I tried on Valentine's
Jailbait in short skirts.
Quick to kiss what doesn't last
and limits to their flirts.

How I tried on Valentine's
making the first move.
Only to find I'm ignored
for others in her grove.

How I tried on Valentine's
forcing my own way.
Told by a cold shoulder
How I could not stay.

How I tried on Valentine's
two instead of one
Only to be shot down
and told that I am done.

How I tried on Valentine's
Perfect to a tee.
Wanting only to be seen
in a bar as fee.

How I tried on Valentine's
Cautious and carefree.
Never knew what she was thinking
or who was bird or bee.

How I tried on Valentine's
remembering what I've learned.
Speaking words of wisdom
and loves that have been spurned.

Salutations and Satin Sheets

Pulling up his pants I think he's already forgotten me
Smeared lipstick and a handful of twenty's

Dirty condoms laying on couch, the bed, and the floor 
He gives me a mischievous wink and out the door

Now i'm angry at what I've done 
A filthy whore with cheap discreet fun

Laying on my bed it smells like sex
My life has always been cursed like a hex

No worries i've got a way to take away the pain
Pulled the trigger on my twenty two and blew out my brain

I Should Have Known

I couldn't have known it would come to this
that love would end with the sweep of a kiss
that tears would stain the dreams we shared
that mere fantasies would have us ensnared
and parting lips would forget real bliss,
but I should have known it would come to this.

I couldn't have known how my heart would break
how my life would be spent in the breaths you'd take
that empty arms would be emptier still
as words formed promises you'd never fill
and I'd be a fool for passion's sake,
but I should have known how my heart would break.

I couldn't have known you would say goodbye
that our love would be swallowed in a lie
that my soul would ache for desires we'd known
holding fast to the memories of love you'd shown
and that all I could do was sit and cry,
but I should have known you would say goodbye.

my heart forever

I miss you my friend 
Why did your life come to a sudden end
I know it was your time to be called
But we were having a ball
Your heart I knew ached
But should of caught a break
Why did it have to come to death
Holding you on your last breath
You said you wanted to die in my arm
But a week later didn't know you were in harm
You were sitting there in the chair
Didn't know Angel of Death was there
It was so sudden with out any warning
Next thing in knew I was in mourning
Didn't even had a chance to say good bye
I wish you didn't have to die
In heaven is where you went 
My life has been save so that is where I will be sent
I miss you more than ever
You will live in my heart forever

the last kiss

Head on my chest 
Laying there to rest
Hearing the beat of my heart
Wishing we didn't have to part
You gave me an awesome kiss
Making my life so bliss
Hands on my back
Me touching your rack
A kiss so true
Don't tell me were through
Your heart racing a mile a second
Its just like heaven do you reckon
Putting a smile on your face
Speeding up the pace
Thought I was just a friend
Does this have to end
You heart is in a bind
Don't let me get left behind
Your hand on my chest
Knowing I think your the best
I hate you have to run
But I hope we are not done

After Affect

You've hurt me, you've crushed me in more ways than one
It took me one second to realize now that it's done
Because to you I'm nothing, 
Just someone to take over
I want so bad just to tell you off, But I'll keep my composure
And I'll make you think that you had no affect on me
You never noticed the real me before so it's not like you'll see 
And it's not like you'll care, and I don't think it's fair
But I guess I'll just bare 
And thanks again for putting it all out there for me to catch on to 
I've realized now that we're through

good bye old friend crystal meth

Bertyrayed by a friend
Almost showed me the end
Her name is crystal meth
She put me close to death
She asked me one day 
If I would like to come out to play
She made me think i was in love
One kiss and i was flying like a dove
She seperated me from family and friends
Had my life close to the end
Opened up my eyes that she was going to stay
I just wanted her to go away
I seen my friendship had to end
I finally said good bye my friend
I don't wanna see any more death
Good bye my old friend Ms crystal meth

TOO CLOSE A HEART MUST BE LOVED FROM THE DISTANCE

He sees her; the door finally opens up.
His life flashes, from early start of a pup.

It allows for an inner dark contrast.
He regrets partying hard and running fast.

Seeing his silhouetted shapely beauty in white!
Still fighting feelings for her with all his might! 

She begins her approach towards him.
With each step she takes he becomes grim!

He wants to yell and scream; try to stop her.
But on this good sunny day; he would be the bad weather.

He is on holy land and mad as hell!
Because she is moving like a turtle in its shell!

He is angry because it is making time slow.
He does not want to remember; for it will truly show!

He thinks of those times they made love.
They fit each other like a glove.

Oh, but there were always some serious issues.
His many vices became her daily box of tissues!

He is changed now because of what she did.
She put hammer to his nails; shutting that lid.

It worked he swore to her; “No more mischief!”
Between mournful sobs; he cried into his kerchief!

They hugged and she said; “We have a wedding to get through!”
“Yes my dear I know exactly what I must do!”

“Oh come on honey now; please don’t make it a big deal!?”
“As much as you've been there for me; this is one day I don’t want to feel!”

She says, “It will be fine; we can get through this together!?”
He says, “Let’s elope right now!? Forget all this; why bother!?”

She looks at him deeply; and thinks about it.
“I want the wedding ceremony! My name will be Mrs. Bennet!”

Vows are said; the church ceremony is done.
Now it is due time for the wedding reception.

The bridal bouquet is excitedly tossed!
The bride’s garter is then teasingly tossed!

That very first dance as husband and wife.
Whispering in each other’s ear; “This is for life!”

Everyone then gets silent in the room.
It is time to toast the bride and groom.

The mike is passed from hand to hand.
It then finally reaches the best man.

His words of endearment evoked such emotions.
The tears that flowed could have filled entire oceans.

Not one dry eye as they burst into applause!
And all this happened just because.

The best man knew the right words to say.
To peacefully send them on their way.

And as the evening finally starts to wind down.
The newly weds are speaking of leaving town.

“May I interrupt; and have a last dance with the bride!?”
“But it’s a slow jam; wait until the Electric Slide!?”

“What you don’t trust your best man with your wife!?”
“Come on man cut that crap out; I trust you with my life!”

He holds her close and whispers on the dance floor.
“Wished it was me when I saw you at the church’s front door!”

“But, but!”? “No don’t say a word just listen please!?”
“You are the only woman that has ever brought me to my knees!”

“But you did it in a kind, loving good way!”
“You saved me from me! I thank God every day!”

“When I was at my very worst!”
“It somehow helped quench your thirst!”

"We both benefited from you saving me!"
"It is why I would forever love thee!" 

“You stayed with me all through the darkness!”
“Held me during my nightmares of madness!”

“I would wake up screaming in a cold sweat!”
“All you did was to hold me with no regret!”

“With such mutual caring, came vulnerability!”
“We can not continue this coital familiarity” 

“As I watched you approach I began to falter!”
“Wishing I was instead the groom at the altar!”

“But it will cause us all one great big tragedy!”
“After this dance I walk away forever, and bow out gracefully!”

"I only want the best for you; this marriage would be solid as wood!"
"You will be well taken care of; way much better than I ever could!"

He then breaks the embrace telling her to remember this instance.

“TOO CLOSE A HEART MUST BE LOVED FROM THE DISTANCE!”
