Paranoid love

Tell me that this fear is just paranoia in my mind, 
we're not straining, we're not struggling, 
we're not sinking, we're just fine. 
I'm not perfect my dearest, but damn have I tried, 
and I'll try harder but I know I'll have the same results every time. 
Do you want me all the ways that I am? 
With all the struggles and the tears and the clinging to your hand. 
I fear your getting further and Im left on the shore to stand, 
watching you in the distance with a bullet in my hand. 
Tell me all this worry, its just clutter in my mind, 
tell me not to worry that we're doing just fine. 
Cause Im scared to run you off and I feel Im falling deep. 
And Im so frightened of these thoughts that its getting hard to sleep.
All I know is that the heart wants what it desires, 
because of you the match inside has turned into a fire. 
And I feel the broken glass thats sticking from my skin, 
Wondering if you'll remove the pain or push it back in. 
My hearts frantic wondering if you feel the same, 
pleading and begging for more than just a saying, 
but to feel and to see that im not alone, 
with being in this love thats overwhelming. 
Once I told you that we didnt have a spark, 
but you were lighting up and I was sitting in the dark. 
And this fire, this blaze its wrapped in desire. 
Im terrified to lose you, I think I might die or, 
maybe disappear from all the pieces falling out, 
im going crazy but when i open my mouth, nothing comes out, 
and I cant explain to you why I just need to hold you close, 
why every time you leave Im scared to let you go, 
why these tears are building up behind my eyes, 
all I know is that the heart wants what it desires 
and it desires to be your wife. 
So tell me in my panic, that your words are true, 
tell my my dearest what I mean to you, 
tell me that this paranoia is all within my mind 
we're not struggling, we're not sinking tell me we're just fine

God Gave You a Second Chance

God Gave You a Second Chance
 Not ready to leave this world with unfinished business determining the souls color; you’re on borrowed time! Prayers to heaven and words spoken from the heart brought perspective to what time remained. Fear and regret knowing this may be the end brought us closer than before. Always by your side loving, giving freely would now perhaps help spare your life adding color to your heart and soul.
The soul colored with Hope, Faith, and Love, the greatest being Love! I wonder have you given God what was expected for a second chance at life to color your heart and soul. Color determines the hearts purity and the soul’s condition. 
Souls are empty without love in the purest form; if you do not receive and give without fear, shame, or doubt!  From the outside looking in many colors of love surround your soul. I pray the love I give you understand the colors surrounding my heart and soul.
Love was holding you when death looked you in the face and love put death on hold! God and I give you Love. How do you face life and death now, with a heart and soul of vivid colors nourished by our love? God blessed us and we know what matters most. You now live your bucket list, God’s too.
Your list will end, mine too. Sharing with a loved one brings special meaning, understanding, and allows comfort taking away fear, pain, and panic. With unconditional love all’s shared. Colors of the soul glow, angels gather, and God gently lifts one unto himself. The guardian angels exit; slowly colors fade, a feeling passes the one left behind as the end has come. I imagine the colors of love in the heart and soul.
                                                                                                                                                             Debbie Knapp

My Soul Mate

Sweet laughter and devotion, I have shared with none.
This restless heart so tired, of being all alone.

I’ve tried the life of Paul, but it gave not enough.
My heart is overflowing with aching, needful love.

Lord, bring me a companion, but not just any man.
He must be one of valor, or leave me as I am.

Make him strong as Moses, a leader in Your truth.
And I will stand beside him, that I may be his Ruth.

Someone to correct me in, things I need to know;
Reproving me, thus gently, in order that I grow.

Bring me one like Jonathan, loyal to the end;
And I will love forever, this man that is my friend.

Even in the hard times, he will choose to stay;
And we will seek for healing, together, as we pray.

A Boaz to protect me, in safety He will lead,
That I may rest completely, in all that my heart needs.

Someone true like Joseph, my words he will believe;
His faithfulness long-lasting, when others would deceive.

And don’t forget Dear John, his loving heart’s embrace;
With eyes that will behold me, in honor, truth, and grace.

But mostly find the heart, of Jesus that forgives;
Then, with this man you bring me, forever I will live.

Passionate Love

I want you..
And I was made just for you
I'll make love to you
All the night with you

Feel my heart that burns in fire
Look my eyes that full of desire
As our bodies ignite in passion
Our souls chain in a strong union

Carressing every part of you
Gives me satisfaction
Dancing in the hymn of love
That just the two of us can hear it loud

Nothing seperate me from you
No one could make me feel like the way you do
Our passion for each other binds us together
And our love for each other makes us FOREVER!

Sometimes We Just Know

A sensation I’d never had before
Overcome by helplessness when he touched my hand
Attraction ignited as he first entered the door
Warmth filled me as we sauntered ‘cross the sand
Giggling ‘neath starlight, so happy to find my man

His dark, wavy hair I brushed my fingers through
The first time we kissed, my heart raced fast
I melted in his strong arms, passion grew
He was so brilliant, had integrity and class
What he saw in me, I just couldn’t grasp

He was older than I, but it didn’t matter
I’d never loved before and never did again
He was mature, my heart he wouldn’t shatter
As a virgin danced on the beach; fate had a plan
Deep in my heart, I knew he’d be my husband

The Safety Valve of the Heart-w

A woman in rags with beautiful skin
Rusticity seen all over looking for a job 
To her the village sky was too small to win
She wanted to soar in a city sky to probe.

Moved to the city in one-room apartment
With her husband & daughter with wishes.
After some years the life gave a good start,
But her husband was attacked by paralysis.

Lying in a broken bed numb as a wound
She shed me deforming tiles of the rooms.
A life’s funeral procession was on its round
The man who loved her tore her to pieces.
 
She was still a beauty, accepted another
He made her laugh till she with joy me recall 
I gave her the feelings of a summer shower
She was happy that I was at her beck and call. 

As the time passed when her beauty faded
Embellishing her neck and wrists with jewels
Used rouge, kohl and hair artfully combed
No semblance of the beauty she was, Alas!

Heard the heavy steps on stairs in the night
Leading but to the bedroom of her daughter
I ran to help, heart torn, killed him with spite
Again cure for her was my salty taste and sweat.

I'm tear, multi-faceted emotions of heart much stressed
By happiness, grief, and pain when they are in excess.

Jungle Love

Your sweet nectar
wraps around my senses
like jungle vines
steady drums beating
Your heart near mine

Your strong hands
hold me suspended
by my waist
Just enough pain and strength
against my supple skin
For my taste

The musk of your
sculpted body and the forest
has me going wild
But yet, the tender way you
protect me, reminds me of
Being a child

A safe familiarity
with a strain of animalistic
seduction
Your invisible hold over me
leaves me arrow poisoned
Unable to function

My long dark hair wraps you
with smells of coconut and ocean Sun
your locks full of mud and enemies
Blood
together, my warrior
We make One

A Beautiful Reverie

Here I lie beside you
My heart goes thump.thump.thump.
My soul dances inside you
Reveling in the texture of your own.
Electric and flowing 
The currents of our love
Glow like neon lights
Illuminating the hope in my eyes.
Though we're not moving
I feel so incredibly alive
Invincible to my past
Untouchable by all who lack
That gentle touch of when 
You lean in and brush my face
Your lips grazing my skin
Softer than a butterfly.
And then you gaze into my eyes
I fall into your depths 
Twirling like the autumn leaves
Melting into your smile 
Your soul reminiscent of summer.
You pull me into your arms 
And for a moment I'm lost 
Breathless and in awe
Staring in the face of pure exquisite love 
And there you are - holding it 
Glowing in the moonlight of my stare.
My heart beats - its drum pounding away
Echoing a song thats lost its words
I touch your cheek and smile
My hands cant stay away
My lips s l o w l y, draw near yours
Hovering, and then - 
Part, a soft warmth against them.
My eye lids pulling shut
Dragging me into a silent heaven
I pull away - and what seemed millennia
Lasted only a moment, a second in time
But this is our love
This is what you do to me
You make me invincible and fragile
Lost forever in a beautiful reverie.

VALENTINE TANGO IN HONEYMOON

                              Fly me to the moon
                              And let me play the stringed tunes,
                              The nod-nod head of a lover’s hoot
                              Let me dance among the stars
                              The tap-tap feet of a chivalrous heart... 

When my gaze beheld you-my spouse
In our heart true passions doused 
Draped like silk, a face with love soused
A new home in you I found.

I saw in you a beautiful wife
A flashy rectitude that brought new life,
That ravished me with sapphire eyes so fine
Fitted in your pearl socket, not of swine

You have triggered the jubilee of sunshine valentine
Now torch me with the kisses of your lip so bright
And swing me with the noontide delight I delight
Tangoing the tango of moonlight

I woo you with a honey tongue
Like silly doves we coo this carol song
In the sonority of your voice is compassion
Borne in a roomy heart for sacred fun. 
 
                              … Fly us to the (honey) moon
                              Play us the bedroom tunes
                              In a solitary nook,
                              Let’s twirl this ballet as David in jolly mood
                              And wreathe in celestial honeymoon cocoon.

Prince Agba.

Dedicated to those who are facing diverse marital squalls in their homes, may God 
mend your broken hearts and homes.

The Owl and the PusyCat Sail

Together the Owl and the PusyCat were married
Then again sailed out over the deep blue seas
Searching forever for the great Land of Nod,
To the place where they could find true peace.
True peace, true peace… Where they could find true peace.

The love that twined forever within their hearts
They sought throughout all the wonderous lands
Going to the place where they would live in peace,
A place where true peace, rules and lives in the hearts of the land.
The land, the land… Where true peace lives in the heart of the land.

Alas, the love of the heart, though truly not easy to find…
Is easier to find than the love of peace, found throughout the land.
So it’s said they will continue to sail, until that day comes true,
And when they land for the final time, will be up to me and you.
Me and you, me and you… That day will be up to me and you.

Greatest Love

All I ever wanted is a lifetime of happiness
The caring, the sharing and the togetherness
Meeting a man who is lovable and sweet
The greatest ever man that I could ever meet

At days end I watch the sunset
I am so glad in the way we met
When I look at you, you're such a delight
You make me feel that everything is alright

You always put a smile on my face
Make my heart pound, at a fast pace
You have a beautiful soul and a beautiful mind
I believe that I had made a magical find

Knowing that we are truly remarkable
We make each other feel so very comfortable
With both ouf our hearts, we are tough and strong
We do bounce back when things go wrong

As I am seeing this bright little light
With you in the centre, it feels so right
Whispering beautiful words in each others ear
Just being so close for you are my dear

Your love is powerful when you give me a kiss
A love that is beautiful and so full of bliss
Returning your love, I give you my heart
Don't think of a day for when we part

The kisses you give are soft and tender
I can't resist, so I surrender
To your loving kisses and magical charms
I will be forever in your arms

Every single day, I feel so much love
You're with me too as we fly up above
The love I feel is so very real
You have a heart of gold and made of steal

Thinking about you, thinking about me
There is no other place I would rather be
With our love and friendship we will survive -
Because of what we do, we do it with drive

For you are my king and I am your queen
All the magical things we do and what we have seen
It doesn't matter what month of the year
I love you so much, for you are my dear

I can feel the love as much as there can be
So closer moments, beautiful feelings towards me
While we are together, we show love and affection
Could our love see the everlasting direction?

The Web of Hearts

An intricate mesh of thread
Holds together our hearts like a spiders web.
It started long ago
With a single, fine, white line,
A fragile link of silken twine.
A simple bond of heart and mind
Strands of love carefully intertwined.
We didn't continue to make it strong,
And yes, that's where we went wrong.
Now the loose ends dangle so far apart,
An immeasurable distance heart to heart.

"IF YOU WERE MY VALENTINE!!!"

If you were my Valentine
That would mean you're completely mine
I'll tell you how beautiful you are as my 1st line
Then I'll order some nice and smooth wine
A wonderful meal we'll dine
I'll shower you with gifts that shows true love
Then instantly you're know it's straight from above
I'll be the perfect gentleman
By treating you like a real woman
Making sure you know just how special you are to me
And this isn't just words,from my heart here's the master key
As the night unfold
I'll try hard not to be bold
If you want me to go further I won't turn you down
Proving I'm the best man in town
As you began to make faces,mourn,and frown
I'll know I gave my best,my all,and  a job well done
As you whisper in my ear yes daddy you're the only one.

You Touched My Heart

Oh how sweet and beautiful are the words
that you say to me, they stick to my soul
like honey to a bee.  They move me,
they soothe me, they let me live, for
it is you that I need and my heart
I will give.

You touched me like I never have
felt before, you start my heart breathing
so fast until I can hardly let go.
I feel your words like sand on a beach
they are still in my head and will never
decease.  Your words are so brand
new and alive, for they are the only
thing that is helping me to survive.

You touched my heart like no other I have
known, the way in which you love me
I wil never do you no harm.  Your words
is like an ocean running free, all I want
them to do is pour all over me.

You touched my heart like a child playing
with a toy, he love it so much because
it brings him so much joy. That is how 
you touch my heart, giving and bringing
me so much joy, it makes me feel like
a child with his new toy.

You touched my heart every day of my
life, that is why I do not care about all
the sacrifice. I wil do everything to make
you happy just as long as I know I am
the apple of your eye and that you will
do or say nothing to make me
cry.

You touched my heart from this day
forward, there can never be another
you because you are what I need and
it is me for you and you for me that
is the only way it is going to be.
you touched my heart.

A Prayer for my Wife

                           A Prayer for my Wife


Now I’ll tell you all the details if I can keep from sheddin’ a tear
Last night when it got late and really quiet around here 

I got down on my knees, crossed my heart and began to pray
And in the darkness between me and God, here’s what I had to say

I love her so much Lord and I just don’t know what I’d do
I’m afraid that she won’t make it, that’s why I’m coming to you

Here with my heart open, at your mercy down on my knees
I’m begging’ you with every heartbeat, Oh Lord hear my pleas

I don’t know what your plans are or what you have in store
And I know I don’t deserve her and that she deserves much more

And don’t misunderstand Lord, I don’t assume any obligation
For your bounty in our life has exceeded all our expectations

But please allow her to live and me to be a part of that life
And I swear I’ll make this beautiful woman proud to be my wife

And if it’s not in your plans Lord then I pray that you take me instead
Cause’ I can’t live without my love, I’d be better off dead

And no excuses for my past Lord, but I’ll do better than I’ve done
I ask you only this, my lord, in the name of your Son.

I wiped my tears as I said my amen’s and prepared myself to stand
Stepped up next to your bed and began to caress your pretty hand

I stared off into space as all the memories came flooding in
Reliving each and every moment, over and over again

And as the first rays of sunshine, streamed in past the curtain
I felt an overwhelming peace calm my mind and ease the hurtin’

I felt compelled to kiss you so I pressed my lips to your face
And it seemed the room was filled in the beauty of God’s living grace

And you slowly opened your eyes and smiled for me to see
And I knew the Lord my God had given my sweet wife back to me

Together,Forever

I call it a blessing from above
And I know everyone wants this to have
Everyone is looking for it
But only few can found it

I'm lucky I'm one of that few
And I've been blessed to found true love in you
It's like a dream came true
To be loved by the guy I loved too

To you,I felt the undefined happiness
For me,for all the guys you are the best!
And I want you to stay for the rest of my life
Coz' I really need someone like you in my life

I consider you as a blessing sweetheart
So I give to you my sincere HEART
I love you forever
And I hope that God will guide us to be together..forever

Ice Blue Heart

Your heart is cruel and made of frigid steel
a sharpened chisel is your angry tongue
and with your tool you carve the pain I feel
each time all of your hurtful words are flung

You slash me as you twist the words I say
within you no compassion can be found
as pieces of my heart are chipped away
and die in crimson piles upon the ground

I question what lies in your evil mind
you act as if you are too blind to see
the way you hurt me with your words unkind
and how your vicious tool has damaged me

Why do you say you love me like you do
when your cold heart is dead and icy blue?

Rose Wine

Your strong hand 
beneath my head
my Love in your Blood
turned from friendship
did spread
into More
the first time you
took my Hand
and traveled every
line, of my Flesh land
the way you reflect your soul
Into my Eyes, 
makes me forget my small stature
shape, size
in this world
I wish to carry your 
future child
be it boy or girl
be them strong of spirit
Smarts of street and class
leaders of Eminence
Sweet mixed with Sass
I see this future
as I fall head first, spilling
into your secure embrace
like a single bottle of Rose Wine
Down to the last Taste

My Beloved

Hey Mr. Editor,
It's not very often we hear true stories of enduring Love that grows with time. I can 
hear the cynic groan as I write this, but it's a good human interest story and I 
thought a good one for the coming of spring, a time of new birth and new beginings. 
There is a couple who met while in school, years ago.  After graduation they both 
were seperated by thousands of miles; both got married to different people 
sometime later and raised their young families.  All this time their love remained 
silent, waiting, yet strong.  Today, their children are adults and about to venture on 
their own lives. Reconnected once more, perhaps by fate, they have planned to wed 
very soon.  I was asked by the Bride-to-be, a dear friend, to write a poem on her 
behalf which she would read to her Groom at their Wedding Ceremony. I was truly 
honored and graciously obliged. It's titled,"My Beloved.  Thank you for your 
consideration of my request.

My Beloved, Today, I can not say that dreams do not sprout wings! Nor will I ever accuse time of being an adversary Not when I know that within its grasp lies our past, present and future Today, my heart is full and overflowing with abundant joy! Gazing into your beautiful soul, I glimpse love’s sparkling reflection Streaming like a river, endless, into vast ocean tides And I stand in awe of God’s everlasting love and providence The sweetest portion of which we have come to taste! For so long I have waited! How I have yearned for this moment When I would pledge life and love to you; become one flesh, one heart! One heart that will bleed no more as nothing can stand between us I will lose myself in you and you in me forever! No longer will dreams haunt our lonely nights And I will not have to walk this side of Heaven without you When I consider the paths which we have traveled I marvel and smile, as now it is clear - they were leading us to, this day! In the silence of a thousand nights my prayers to heaven took flight And though seasons of yesterdays came only to fade away Time, it seemed, had shelved my fervent plea ‘Til sweet destiny obliged, leading me to the one who holds my heart My Beloved, my husband, my best friend, and companion, Our love has arrived; our single journey begins today!

I cry for you

The tears I shed are not tears of pain but of grief for you my love. As life would have it or fait at least; you lost at what could have been. Really what should have been!
I know what you truly deserve and it's not me or the poor background of which I've come from. Your friends have managed to find wives with wealth and retirement. While all you can do is carry the load as you always do.
Do not think for an instant my heart isn't hurting; knowing I'm not good enough, never have been, and never will be. I can never catch up in life and will never be an equal. At no time is this far from my mind.
I used to think love was all that mattered but now I have grown up and realize how much more there is to life. A fine line drawn in the sand from the beginning has set us apart and down separate paths. Together yet not as one; this was never to be for our lives were directed by poverty and riches.
Was I selfish to want you? I did not understand then as I do now. Now knowing what I know, I cry for you my love. You could have carried on finding that special one to share all of you with. No lines drawn, no poverty or riches to separate. No tears shed or grief knowing ones' not good enough!
What's ahead as each day passes I wait to see. God has a plan, everything happens for a reason. A new job with more money, yet not even this erases the line. Not for my life of such little means even this can't bind a heart set on a different path?

Thirsty Feeling about Nature and love

A small poem “Thirsty Feeling about Nature and love” wrote by Mrs. Madhavi. Suyog. Pagare

 “Thirsty Feeling about Nature and love” 

Seating nearby valley side,
Astonished by seeing a nature's serene beauty. 
Amidst Grassy hills,
zigzagically mounted on the stupefying homeland.
Pristine Water, Sliding from the highest peak,
Flowing in its own way,
Wondering about its challenging destiny.
Love the way you are.
I owe you for myself!!

Wind's whispered, Cheering in its ain way.
Chanting of music beats,
Recited with a soothing intonation.
Birds speaking eloquently..
Dazzling due to marvellous rainbow..
Love the way you are,
I owe you for myself!!

Amazing and enamoured environment aroused my emotions,
Feeling Shy to express.
Missing my dream person,my Mr.Adam.
Versatile persona where are you?
Come here and hug me.
Fuel me up with spirit.
Gift me a smile.
Until forever fades away, Endure me.
Love the way you are..
I owe you for myself!!

Finished dropping stones in water.
Gladly waiting for your arrival.
Testing patience is all enough now.
Wanted to feel the gist of love.
Desire to fulfil wish with pure heart and soul.
Auspicious moments provoking to capture 
Love the way you are, 
I owe you for myself

FOREVERMORE

When I hear your name
My heart beats faster than usual
It's not that I am ashame
But It's just your name is too special..

Can't control the feelings
When I am with you
Can't stop smiling
When you hold me like you do

When you hug me then
I feel like I'm in heaven
You are a blessing from above
And you are the reason why I loved

I'll promise to love you FOREVERMORE..
And I will cherish you until the end of my borrowed life
And I will keep our precious memories as long as
we see each other in our next life..

The Intensifying love story

The Intensifying love story by 
Madhavi.S.Pagare
 
I simply adore you, my Mesmerizing 
Persona.
As you are my first love.
Who lighted my heart with full of pride and 
joy.
Who ignited the ecstasy towards lovely life.
Who relieved my pains and took sorrows 
as boon.
You made me fall sick in your love when I 
see your madness.
I like the way,
The way you gazed at me and my smoky 
eyes.
The way you smiled at my mystifying and 
enigmatic appeal.
The way you every time praises me.
The way you galvanized me and proved 
the meaning of life.
You are the one,
Yes, you are the one who aroused my 
feelings, my emotions.
Yes, you are the one who explored my 
passion of love, flaming in my charismatic 
soul.
Yes, you are the lovely treasure which god 
had baptized me.
Yes, you are the one who turned the page 
of my life.
Eureka, I found my true love!!!!
Bewilderedly I did not know, where is my 
love taking me to ??
But still I like the way,
Like, the way you clutched me into your 
arms.
Like, the way you kissed my palms.
Like, the way you hugged me, caressed 
me.
Like, the way you rubbed your fingers on 
my lips.
Like, the way you tickled me on my neck.
Like, the way you squeezed my cheeks.
Like, the way you holded me up towards 
the sky.
Like, the way when you inspired me to fly 
so high.
Tears dropped from my eyes and the very 
next moment I realized that it is my 
sensational love. My true love. Then I 
decided that no one had right to do this 
except you. If you want to know the 
reason?? If yes??
Yes, because I seriously fell in love with 
you.
Yes, because you are the one to whom god 
had assigned me to.
And here comes the Swifted instance 
when??
When, the moment you wore the golden 
ring in my finger and I was happily waving 
around.
Just can’t forget the time when our long 
lasting friendship turned into lifetime 
relationship.
It was just the blooming of two lover’s 
indicating the herald of the marriage. It 
means a lot for any girl in this amazing 
world.
And yes, you will always find my heart 
topped with love showered only for you. 
For you!!
And till my last breathe, my heart beats, 
beating for you, only for you SUYOG!!
In fervour I wanted you to be mine forever, 
forever.
We both sojourned in each other soul so 
deeply that we just can’t wait for a single 
second, unless and until, we share what is 
running in our mind. It’s just because we 
are so much accustomed to each other 
now. 
I Love you, adore you, adore you forever 
my Love.

the neighbor boy

I was sixteen budding and fulfilling.
He was fifteen searching and awkward,
walking me home from a bus stop backwards,
carrying my bags, strutting a silly-grin valor.

What a sweet little braggart, trying to woo me.
Quiet and shy with his little trick, a smile
hesitantly grown, an innocent blossom of trust.
Twisted feet tripped, he stuttered, my heart gripped.

One week later still he walked me, holding my bag
sweetly and silently. I grew bold in his attention
our walks extended and moved for privacy.
Budding and grinning I tripped, fell, and he caught me.

I was seventeen and haughty and proud.
He was sixteen budding and promising...
Life fell apart as the world caved in around me,
exploding inwards I fell, and he caught me.

He has held me all these years never leaving.
A promise of trust and love unending
And still his quiet slow grin unbends
my heart and makes the world re-spin.

God Bless The Garbage Man

Though this is written like a poem it is
more of a thank you letter.

God answers prayers in so many ways
he brings us people to help keep the faith
he gave to me a sweet, sweet man
who helped me truly understand
when i was low and ready to give up
see i was broke 
Without a job, no money, no food, no gas in the car
My husband needed to go and find work
To help his family stay a float
We saw the garbage man outside
We feared he'd come to take our garbage can
So we rushed out side to ask him not too
He said he wasn't there too
He just came to empty our can
'Cause the regular garbage man had passed us up
Now here is were God steps in
My husband and the garbage man talk outside for quit awhile
Tears fill my heart when I think of what comes next
My husband leaves and comes right back
He tells me that the garbage man has put $23 of gas in our van
My heart must of skipped a beat, I could not believe his generosity
Though it does not stop there
Apparently the garbage man has also given us $40 in cash
His only wish is was that it was not spent on cigarettes or booze 
This money was for my family to get food
So often we forget how God lends a helping hand
God does not promise to make us rich, or grant us all we wish
He simply says just ask of me and all you NEED will be given to thee

Today I send out a special prayer, "God, Please bless The Garbage Man that 
gave my family a helping hand. Amen"

Deployment Day

That whole hour before you left,
I stood there and watched time fly,
that moment i dreaded was almost here,
that moment of goodbye.
I tried to make the time last, 
but then the buses came,
my heart was ripped from my chest,
when you turned and walked away.
I tried to hold the tears back,
in fear you'd see I wasn't strong,
but how could i keep the tears from falling,
when half of my heart was gone.
each day is a struggle,
but yet, somehow I learn to cope,
I keep my head high and continue on,
but I never lose hope.
Pray everyday as I will,
for god to bring you home,
and keep your faith in his hands,
and remember your never alone.
My prayers will walk beside you,
I hope that brings you some peace,
I'll say a prayer for you everynight,
just before I go to sleep.
This journey will eventually end,
so keep your spirits high,
cause I know god is always there,
and my prayers won't leave your side.

I Wish You Were Here

I wish you were here with me each day
when the birds  announce the arrival of dawn
I wish you were here with me at night
when the stars twinkle and moon shines through
There has never been a time you were not part of my life
My heart feels empty  when your not here  by my side
Without you here with me my soul  knows  no rest
It's solemn in the morning and throughout each passing day
I miss you more when daylight slowly fades away. 
     
I appreciate the things that you do more than you know
We need each other like springtime blooms, that grow
In the rain and in the sunshine, all day long.
We've laughed and cried together,through good & bad times
Sometimes now while your away, I get so overwhelmed
It gives me great comfort in knowing this agony will pass
One thought that appeases me, is what I know for sure
You'll take me in your loving arms and I could not ask for more.


I know that even though you are away from me for now
Our love still endures  brightly though from afar.
Two hearts bound together, that can't be pulled apart
The journeys we take in our lives, forever to last
Can't be erased just by you're going over there and my love
When you return back to me again one day soon
We'll enjoy lovely sunrises and sunsets once more
So  come with me where dreams are born and time is never planned.
Just think of happy things, and your heart will fly on wings,
Forever, in Never Never Land."

Distant Love

The hours dwindle slowly by- 
When I want you by my side. 
Longing to feel the warmth of your breath 
As you kiss away my pride. 
 
The anger melts away, 
When I'm held within your arms.
My balance quickly faltering;
As I fall for all of your charms.
 
The weeks are always longer-
When I don't get to have you near.
Wishing that I could run to you- 
The distance heightening my fear. 
 
The hours go by rapidly-
When you are finally home. 
 Leaving me all by myself;
With my thoughts to roam. 
 
The cycle starts all over- 
I'm wishing that you were free. 
Longing to feel the warmth of your breath. 
Until you come right back to me.

A WINTER SECRET: Confessions of a woman blessed with true love -for Mix It Up contest

A WINTER  SECRET: Confessions of a woman blessed with true love .(for Mix It Up  contest)
                                         
                                          frost shields the window
                                       deepening the sleep within --
                                                  soft snores

  The winter chill cut deep. An eerie frosty silence loomed all over white stillness. Glad, my heart was the only thing that was on fire .But it had been so since the advent of that winter. True, funny too, I had met him only a couple of times and spoke to him just once. Then, our eyes had held each other’s in rapturous oblivion of the commotion around us .My heart began its tremble at the very thought .I was deeply intrigued at the throb, but I let it stay. It was a sweet tantalizing torment  .I disguised all that girly cravings in a sophisticated smile and appeared composed. All the while the feminine faculty raced frantically within the psyche to sort an answer for my mammoth attraction and hazed feelings… can it be love? I pulled on my mauve suede jacket and ankle high boots , let myself out for a tranquil pace of contemplation free from the ribbing of reality. Shamelessly banal, I began. Was it his sleek movements, or his deep tawny eyes, or his frank demeanor, or his graceful hands? I was panting. I stopped there .I entered a café for a warm recluse. As I waited for my cafe -latte at a corner table, I was drawn into a penetrating set of eyes, caught quite off-guard. He approached me and with that throaty chuckle and sincere plea, he asked me out for a walk. [Crazy? I thought to myself when I saw the  soft drizzle outside].

    We walked along the slippery side lanes .Heavy lidded and glazed, my eyes picked beauty in abundance .Everywhere .My hands deep in pockets and chin held up, I gave a good pretense. To  look calm. But my nerves were crackling in excitement. Winter winds were harsh .He took me home. Astonishing ,I found myself talking to him with an astounding ease.Waves of warm love exuded and all I longed for was to be in his arms. But I sat there with  a put on stoic diplomacy. Tapestries were classy and beautiful, I noted. And that was all .Vision blurred and wild honey flowed... I felt a warm homecoming in his arms, as natural as a flower blooming under tender moonlight....

                                                  
                                                   the moon shines
                                                 on two sated lovers -- 
                                                    cell -phone rings

Missed it-One day at a time

One day at a time
With the delusion of anger,
falling from my eyes,
The veil of bitterness,
Torn from the one I despised,
My heart withers in my chest
The spell that cast a shadow on this beauties shimmering frame
That hid a wonder a mystery this woman bearing my name.
I cannot believe I’ve lived alongside you for so long
And missed the chorus of a lover’s  refrain.
We like strangers in the night
Ships passing by on a foggy sea,
Have rediscovered each other again,
Fearful yet wanting, the task ahead daunting,
Forever changed by the crimson stain,
Leaving us equipped in ways we can never explain.
One day at a time, we live for these moments,
One day at a time, is all we are given,
And by the grace of God our one day at a time will turn into memories
That we will share over a lifetime.

Because Of You

My life was full of darkness and despair
And then I met you

My life was boring and without meaning
And then I met you

My heart was cold and closed off
And then I met you

I had no hopes and no dreams
And then I met you

My heart is warm and full of love
Because I have you

My soul is bright and full of life
Because I have you

I know true love
Because I have you

My Love For you Will Never Wax Cold

GentleMan I remain blind to the world but you. The Lily among Thorns and the perfect work of a craftsman's hand. Giving usefulness to my Banquet Hall and injecting Life into my green Vineyard. Lady Oh dear! My darling Gentle Lion. Radiant and ruddy, unique as a Gazelle. A mound of Wheat encircled by Lilies. More attracting than Rods of Gold set with Chrysolite. Yet, proven to be the Noblest of all Men and still glued to me like two halves of a Pomegranate. GentleMan My Precious among Maidens, your royal tapesty, which its tresses, hold Kings in captivity. Even the Towers of Damascus filled with Pillars of Marble are not as prestigious as the comfort of our bed which pours out the freshness and purity of the countryside and always placing the Banner of Love over me. Lady You are my much needed raisin when I am weak, My satisfaction and my Pride, like the house of cedars and like Polished Ivory decorated with Sapphires. More glorified than the woods of Lebanon, perfumed with myrrh and incense. Where more would my Heart go? When it is locked in the Cage of Your Love. GentleMan My Angel! Please don't speak of the fragrance of a perfume because not even the Saffron nor the Calamus, nor the Cinnamon or other incense Trees, together can match the Lattice nature of your breath. Lady My Heart beat! Is it the Aloes and mandrakes? Or the finest spices from Asia? Is it sweet Herbs from the Merchant of the East? Together when combined to the sparkles of your Robe are like little foxes standing near a Tiger. Gentleman Your beauty adds quality to earrings of Diamond. It is washed in Milk and Mounted like Jewels, spreads like columns of Smoke and like a rounded Goblet that never lacks blended wine. What more am I searching for? When your Lips have the taste of every delicacy renewing our bond like cool-chilling Soda keeping us steadfast in an unshakable Anchor because My Love for you will never Wax cold.

Tea

We met in Heaven and  hung in freedom

Laying in fields of clover and joy

Just thoughts and unable to express our love

You were wonderful and I called you Beauty

Mine

God met with us and readied

You will go where I send and wait

I had forgotten you until prayer

It was then I heard you calling

He

I saw you in my dreams and danced again

Tried to recall but there were no answers

I picked you and you picked me

But it was cloudy there

Sun

Your eminence diminished and the shining

We promised to wait until GOD sent his signal

And I waited at the crossroad

My lovely came to me and whispered

Well met

I saw you walking across the lawn

You caught me and the photos

My heart was full and the snapping and flash

I remembered and thanked God

My lovely

The wedding came and love

The rice was thrown but you

Always you and your warm hands

The heart which I waited took

Released

We were well met

But we had to go our separate

It wasn't convenient

Silently and moving

Love was placed in the freezer

Ritorno

Return to me

Our love can be thawed

We can baste and nurture

You bring the best of me

Tea

And the leaves crushed

Water boiling and rolling

Only the finest China

We were freshly brewed

Forty-Four years later, the Sonata of these words Still Rings in my ears

The Aromas, sweet and spicy, sour ,tart, fruity, meaty, waif through my nose
I remember the smell of burning starch, elbows set in ice cold water on the stove, two hours
Taste buds come alive, epicurean;  connoisseurs : enticing  The palette soothing the throat

DAMAGED MY TRUE LOVE

written 17th Sept 2013



When it comes to love, I AM poisonous
 don't let me curse another, leave me loveless

For the first time in my life, I felt your pain and cried for your heart
 my heart finally hurts, knowing I passed this pain from the start

Please find help to set your heart free
 trust me, it's not a life you recover from easily 

Damaged goods I told you, unrepairable
 but some how, you managed the impossible

Unlovable for my entire life
 yet you had no problem, getting me to become your wife

Yes, it's been more than both of us should have ever had to bear
 at this moment, every cell in my body is overwhelmed, so I really do care

Please don't enter my life's pain and despair  
 you don't deserve it, you are so patient and filled with such love

I'm sorry I let myself fall in love knowing it would poison you
 soul mates forever and eternity, my love belongs only to you...

Like A Broken Teacup

Sitting on the shelf like a broken teacup
I go on despite these difficult moments
I run into myself with Irish green eyes and permanent tear stained cheeks
I've endured the immensity of agony
I’ve turned down all those so-called hot lovers sulking in this harsh yellow land
I wrestle with the ongoing struggles of this evil world 

No…nobody can go backwards
You see, you and I were never meant to be
So...don't tell me your hurt is my fault
I’ve assessed these holes in my life-have you assessed yours?

It was a lifetime ago…forever gone in all that I was 
In a curious way I’ve known the debris of myself ...
I’m more damaged than I care to admit

Here I am…pathetically sitting in the rubble of where my heart lives
A thin-skinned loner- a re-cycled me of who I used to be 
I can't waver yet again, to take another chance at love
I've known too much time away from it all
So evident in the moment of my blinding conscience
Pondering the un-gentleness of things
That should have been beautiful...but were not

And so, I pick up the pieces of my broken soul
From a broken love that was never meant to be
I'm in for a new change of lifestyle - a new change of heart 
A release of all those emotions that were tearing me down 
The old life I knew, I threw away with the teacup 
I got a new life, a new cup, and I'm forgetting you and the past

The Unhappy Moth

She chose a red scarf. The most red 
of them all.
Of a dark red, a sweet and thick red color,
just as wine.

She carved from the red scarf
from the middle
to the size of a Martini glass.

Then she carved one more glass,
and she kept carving 
till she fell asleep.

Yesterday
she saw her Beloved Moth 
flirting with a Younger Moth, 
carving together from a sweater
while she was getting busy,
carving in the shelves.

The Unhappy Moth drank lots of wine
woolen wine, 
last night.
She drank lots, too much
for a Moth.
The Unhappy Moth got drunk
and fell asleep
on the red scarf,
unhidden
with a heart filled with peace.

She was not afraid no more. 
Now she could be seen easily,
laying on the scarf
and easily crushed.

The Unhappy Moth was not 
afraid of death no more,
at least, now she knew 
how wonderful the red scarfs are
and that they taste
like red wine.

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!

Life Without Him

A woman cannot control her heart,
Who she loves can tear her apart,
without a clue of what he does,
when he's a rebel without a cause.

I've roped myself a hurricane, 
His heart the only thing I've tamed,
And off to prison once again,
My crying heart goes off with him.

The pain I feel as he goes away,
Will bide with me throughout my days,
My nights in lonely solitude,
As I pray to the Lord I'll make it through.

Bonded for Eternity

The Love we share for one another 
Can never be broken 
We are bonded for Eternity 

We are not only bonded 
Through the eyes of God 
We are bonded through love 
We are bonded through marriage 
We are bonded through our son also 
We are bonded for Eternity 

We may not show our love to the public eye 
We may not show it to our families 
But the love is there behind the mask 
That we both carry 
We are bonded for Eternity 

We may say hurtful things to one another 
We may do hurtful things to one another 
But the love we share Can never be broken 
We are and always will be 
Bonded for all of Eternity

are lonely
in all your sweet
kisses and hugs, you
have shown me
your love is my treasure
and we can stand strong
through any weather
as turtle doves,
we fly together forever
when I hold your hand

You Are The Girl Who Touched My Heart

I remember the day I thought I'd 
never fall in love.
You are the girl that fell from above,
The day I thougnt my heart was 
gone,
You showed me I wasn't alone,
I dont know what came over me,
I don't know how this could be,
I cant explain what you did to me,
I just hope you love me, 
Like a light shining in the dark,
You are the girl who touched my 
heart,
In a blink of an eye,
You fell from the sky,
You are God's surprise,
Because of the way you are,
You shine like a star,
And your eyes glance so light,
Bright as an angel,
My twisted heart untangled,
I was blessed from the start,
You are the girl who touched my 
heart.

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.

My Nest

Love is my nest.
It holds me
where all the world I see.
It saves me
from the ground
which my soul will never meet.

Up in a forest tree
hunters scattering in threes
they'll never catch me
I have love.
I am perfectly happy.

relaxed I am
I do not stress
for there isn't life
without my nest.

who cares what's below?
I am above.
love is my nest
My nest is my love.

Tea Time

Love in your bones, perfection, divine, a wandering heart pure is thine?
A moment in time, immaculate, sensual, alive, we align.
A mass of vibrating energy combines.
Lost here, safe there, warm dear?
Our love melts crippling fear.
There is no divide. No moon owns this colorful tide.
So now we jump! 
Inside my manic depressive ride.
Will I? can I? Abide? to society now, I have a bride?
Shirtless, shoeless, beard is long, happy am I.
Fear not, even King Kong.
Wife at home, smoking tea and high.
Jesus Christ! I sigh. sigh. sigh..
You pinned my soul, my thoughts and I..... 
Dreamed to die.
My, my, my.
Your cold hard shell.
I loved you then and wished you well.
A living breathing tree did fell.
Is it cold in this, your damp black cell?
Silence.....
Now. 
For this happy fat sow.
Expectations melted, I chose, I allow.
By camp fire I love. I warm, with stars above.
Tea in hand, lying back, to know someday I will love.
I toke on tea, enjoying my smoke. I love it here, so real. 
Remote.
For me, for me, I toast, I joke, this bloke owns nothing.
Sorry. I lied. Frothing. I do own something this lovely green smoke.
You strive for things, material and plastic, a waste of energy, I think, a joke.
Funny you see? means nothing to me, like you I wrote.
Happiness is. So very near, its here, shockingly clear.
Your mind, your head, to freely choose.
Before your old and dead, dead, dead.

You Are the One

She lays in his arms
he asks her what's wrong
the silence you keep
and the smile you fake
I know that something's on your mind
She says i don't understand
how someone like you
could love me the way you do
and he says

You are the one
that makes my heart beat 
that completes me
never look down upon your soul
you are the one
that makes my hands shake 
you're my whole life babe
you make me feel so whole
so don't underestimate 
what you do for a wounded soul
I looked everywhere for someone to save me 
and finally 
you are the one

they sit down for dinner 
he says it's been so long since we've been together
and there's something that I have to say
he gets on one knee and pulls out a ring
I cant't imagine why you're here to this day
but I hope there is not coming our way
and she says

You are the one
that makes my heart beat 
that completes me
never look down upon your soul
you are the one
that makes my hands shake 
you're my whole life babe
you make me feel so whole
so don't underestimate 
what you do for a wounded soul
I looked everywhere for someone to save me 
and finally 
you are the one

the preacher speaks
God's words does he say
Faith has brought us to this day
they look in each others eyes
and only they can see

You are the one
that makes my heart beat 
that completes me
never look down upon your soul
you are the one
that makes my hands shake 
you're my whole life babe
you make me feel so whole
so don't underestimate 
what you do for a wounded soul
I looked everywhere for someone to save me 
and finally 
you are the one

no one else was there for me
no one else stopped my heart form bleding
only you can make me feel this way
only you can find my true smile
among the hopeless and the broken
you are the one that saved me from it all

you are the one
that makes my heart beat  
that completes me
never look down upon your soul
I looked everywhere
for someone to save me
and finally
you are the one

thank everything 
In this beautiful world
That made for me
you were there for me
you are the one

Your Eyes Can Wander But Your Heart Cannot - Country Western Song Lyrics

Your eyes can wander
But your heart cannot
And your hands must stay on me

I don’t care
If you can picture her bare
But her lips must stay a mystery

You can dream about another
In unconscious sleep
While lying with me in bed

But make it come true
And I promise you
You’re just gonna end up dead

When you placed upon my finger that diamond ring and exchanged those vows with me
We both made a promise to the other one to forget about past history
But going forward, we both resolved, to do it hand in hand
For me only you and you only me – one woman and one man
And even though you may get bored hav’n the same girl every night
I’m gonna be your wife for the rest of your life and we’ll make it turn out all right

So …

Your eyes can wander
But your heart cannot
And your hands must stay on me

I don’t care
If you can picture her bare
But her lips must stay a mystery

You can dream about another
In unconscious sleep
While lying with me in bed

But make it come true
And I promise you
You’re just gonna end up dead

Could You Hear Me?

Ignorant questions you asked
While requesting in return intelligent answers

A pillow of tears I cried 
But only for awhile

Yet instead my heart was beating like a hammer beats a nail
And I was slowly decreasing like a paper being filed

Into shelter I would hide
Behind doors I cried
Over the  phone I denied
And  inside I died

As if hanging up in my face weren't enough
You left me no choice, but to fall asleep with your 
Thoughtless and careless words

The constant need to be in control of everything and everyone 
I closed my eyes to hold back those tears
Those tears that were trying so desperately to break through

But steadily they came running down my face
Like I was pouring water down a drain

But did you hear me
That language that I spoke

I was talking out loud to all the distant ears
I begged you to lower your voice
But you were to busy screaming at me to hear

You see I constantly found myself apologizing to you
Not believing that I had a right to my own opinion
And that I had a right to be loved and respected

I cursed at times, You kept me mad
And then most days you left me sad
But could you hear me
Could you take my point of view for once
After all that was said and done

My heart was aching and my soul was breaking
A little attention, Like a baby crying out for its mother
Is all I asked of you

Only to hear you speak your truth of belief
And then hang up in my face with a gasp of relief
As if my voice was killing you

When I defended myself , I never knew what I would face
Never knew how you'd react, But I was acting on faith
So I took that leap of faith, I didn't know what else to do
But thank God I found the courage to stand up to you

You made it seem like we were in some game
And half time conversations is all you could spare

Yet like a mother in the midst of labor
I bared all the pain, You couldn't bare

But I had to speak out 
My silence had to be broken

Words shattered at that moment
Shock encountered ones face
Something that never happened before

I would not pretend, That all was well
But you weren't listening to me, I was talking to myself

When I poured out my heart to you sincerely
You belittled me, cursed me, degraded and ignored me
Picked and devoured me like I was poultry

You took me through so much misery
You see this lonely faucet, Only runs so deep
But I found the strength to break free, finally

I wanted to be friends but I remember too clearly 
Just how it was in the past, When you couldn't hear me

I Am Just Not Sure Anymore

I am just not sure anymore
If your the one for me
I am just not sure anymore
And I need to be free

I want to find the door that lead me back here
I need to get out before you break my heart dear
I loved you once and held your heart near
I now know I need to fly out of here

I am just not sure anymore
If your love is ture
I am just not sure anymore
That I can trust you

You want to controll me not hold me tight
You need to own me all we do is fight
You loved me only when for you it was right
You don't know how to let in the light

I am just not sure anymore 
Where your heart lies
Iam just not sure anymore
If you even hear my cries

I want to tell you how i feel inside
I need to shine not to hide
I loved it when we started this wild ride
I now know you don't want to be buy my side

I am just not sure anymore
If this is where I belong
Iam just not sure anymore
If your heart is my home

Love Will Out

In February? Sun burn from looking up at the sky? 
My Oh My… Yes, it’s so very nice and warm.
The trees are blooming and it warms my heart.
Even the groundhog came out, smiled, and looked around…
Six more weeks of this winter? The Best there’s been…
I’ll get out my Valentine trappings tomorrow at dawn.
Then I will go get our leaf blower and make it to blow…
Bubbles and Valentine hearts high in the air…everywhere… 
When my Hubby reaches our home and walks in the door…
I’ll cover him in hearts full of love… with kisses galore…
Yes, I’ll show him my heart… As he walks in… 
I’m sure… On Valentine’s Day our hearts will soar, again…

Happy Valentine’s Day to All and your Loves…

My Endless Love

I love you so much my forever love
There is no fancy way to say it 
Over the years we grew apart
Because of our differences and our choices
But never for a minute did that love depart

What God placed in the heart is cemented
And our man-made efforts cannot erase it
We have tried many other roads to walk
Searching for that elusive something
All that happened was dross

So we come right back to the start
I thought we did finally make it
That we would be where we should have been
But then you hurt me with lies
You tore my heart apart

And I hated you for this
I lashed out to hurt you as much as you did me
The feelings of hate and spite was ugly
I look back and wish I had done things differently
That I had given you time to make amends

But in my haste to give myself justice
I forgot how deep my love for you is
But not even that hate can take this love away
Because I love you truly from deep within my heart
My dearest dearest only true love

Blink My Tears

Blink My Tears

Between a tear and a hope my shadow
searches for answers to my dreams
as your heart pulls at my strings.

As you Know my every thought.

A swallowed cry escapes my lips
As I serenader my heart to yours
Rubies of tears leak before my eyes.

As I blink away my tears I give you
all my trust, As galaxies and stars
could never keep us apart.

As you know my every thought.

Our hearts brought us together 
to unite as one until were token
to the stars.

Our love is forever and I believe you
know this from the bottom of your
heart, We can not see the future
But our father knows who we are.

As he knows our every thought.

Can I step in your heart

I don't understand were all this is coming from. I just know! I feel your words and understand your pain. The real question is! Do you understand my words and pain? Do you see through my eyes the many tears, I hold inside? 

The damage that has been done, in my soul. The wall you worked so hard to bring down. To get my heart to love again. Love you! Now that wall has rise to the top and I'm trying to bring it down. It's just so hard knowing what I know inside. 

Has, I continue to cry and still hold you by my side. Has I never thought of letting you go. I was just following my heart and running from pain. Pain that was bringing me down to the ground. I felt eight feet under each time I took a step. 

Now you stand before me and my mind can't think. My finger won't move, my legs, arm, nor lips. All I can do is dream into your eyes and see if, what you say is true. So I may know if I can continue loving you. Being with you. Living a lifetime with you. Has, I married you under , God. Telling him my body, mind and soul was yours. Until the day I die.

Pain of love

You gifted me a bouquet of flowers,
but felt like God has sent down beautiful showers
It took a long time for me to realize,
that its the time to open my eyes...
 
There was always an inner pride,
when you were sitting by my side
Now my little heart has a doubt,
can it stay away from you without?
 
 
With a hope,I expected your wishes.
later realized that I missed all your kisses
But now starring at the sky
and questioning myself ,why?
 
Unlike others,Day by day,my love grows,
God and me are the two persons who knows.
You still can spread smiles,
though you are away from me in miles
 
The feelings in my heart are so real,
and I beg your heart not to seal
You will never fully understand,
that without you my life cant withstand
 
It is 'you' whom now I rely upon,
I can bet our lives will soon turn on
We both know the present and past,
if we are together, our future will everlast.

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.

The Cougar

I'm only in my twenties, but I really love this girl.
She's all I ever think about. She's my baby, she's my world.
Most people are ignorant. Some people just need to chill.
They're jealous, how can they understand, if they're not feeling what I feel?
Most say it will never work, but here we do it everyday.
It's give and take, just like everything else. We work together and we play.
We have fun together, we hardly fight, and our interests are the same.
If that's not a good match, then please tell me what is! I think you're the one who's insane.
We make each other happy! Isn't that what love is about?
She makes me want to jump up and down. She makes me want to shout!
Whould it be different if I were older then her? How does that make it right?
Men can date younger girls, and nobody cares to fight?
Well I don't care, I'm in love, and I will fight for this to last.
She makes me feel on top of the world. I've never felt this in the past.
This woman is sexy all around, and she has a heart of gold.
She's wonderful, up and down, the greatest story I've ever told.
So when you go out on the hunt, I recommend getting a cougar in your sights!
The one I got has rocked my world, and made my future bright.

Rose Petals

Glowing and white, pure liquid flowing
My heart is expanding.
And I hear angels singing a song that fills my soul.
Rose petals are falling.

A slow steady walk, a gentle loping grace.
My smiling man in all black
So gorgeous. So perfect.
So mine.
My face is shining.
The angels are singing.
Rose petals are falling.

A steady warmth
So strong, and so deep
That gentle heat fills me to my core
And I find myself falling

Falling…Falling….falling.


Rose petals are falling.

Always I Miss You

When I'm home sick, sulking half the day because your not here,
 And getting sadder if I say madder because your not there,
 I remind myself in an unusual way theres worse fared,
 If you don't mind being compared,
 
Repeating the many ways you cared,
 The experiences fondly replayed in many ways,
 Thoughts and memories that make me gay,
 Every recipe, every taste,
 Looking back it all seems in an awkward haste,
 
Now it is what I use to fill my plate,
 It's what I use so I won't be late,
 Staying here learning to appreciate,
 All the miles, trucks caring freight..
 
For your Christmas gifts the children just can't wait,
 But if you visit my mind would quake.

Widow's Peak

Her name is now a legend 
Before her name was feared
The lady Henrietta 
Lean close and lend an ear

They say her status started
One night long time ago
She found her husband cheating
With the girl she knew next door

Her mind did snap
Her heart grew cold
With a knife she stole their souls
Cut the beating heart away 
Ate flesh when cold

Within her veins flowed the blood
Of the one who done her wrong
Gave her everlasting life
Her age in death was old

But one small thing that should be said
About the spell she cast
That beauty would always be her guide
In death she looked her best

Word spread quickly through the town
Where Henrietta lived
About the spell she cast the night
Her husband committed sin

Women came to ask for help 
To change their husband’s ways
For they had also messed around
Now love for them had strayed

With each one she gave the spell
Steps to end their grief
Now in the town such beauty found
In women who’s husbands cheat

With new found beauty each started life
Fresh and young again
And if the man they loved did cheat
Revenge was sweet again


Many many years went by
And soon the town was gone
Towards the end all that was left
Were women who were scorned

But in woods outside the town
In a placed called Widow’s Peak
You find plots of all the ones
Whose death came from a cheat

So this story lives today 
If you doubt then ask around
For the one you love and share a life
Could be a widow from that town

All men beware all women ask
Before you start your cheating
In every city and every town
A Widow’s Peak is forming

Believe me if you will or not
In the end you’ll heed the warning
Just let the one you love find out
To Widow’s Peak you’re going

If I die before I wake

As I die he will be with me,
I fell in love he had the key,
And always knelt on one knee.

My last thoughts are of him, 
As the lights go dim,
Life circling on a rim.

All at once we are apart,
The taste is so tart,
It all hits me in the heart.

You are left to live,
My heart your captive,
There is nothing to forgive.

My cheeks blush so shy,
With a tear in my eye,
As I start to die.

Fear not for I am well,
As many up here can tell,
It is not quite hell.

As I look from above,
kissing the forehead of my love,
I wonder what he dreams of.

I look at him so fondly,
his lips curve so grandly,
as he sleeps so soundly.

I'm like a hummingbird fluttering over his bed,
I wish to be with him but I am dead,
My life over and has fled.

I fear for my love for he is kind,
Strong handsome and well lined,
But now I leave him way behind.

Finding love is like a quiz,
Never knowing what it is,
He needs love from a heart as strong as his.

CRY OF LONELINESS

It’s early in the morning
And thoughts spin in my head
With memories of a time when
I thought you were my friend

I loved you Jim so dearly
Did everything I could
To make your life worth something
Just like I thought I should

You told me at the end there
That loving me was hard
That you found it such an effort
That I only was your tart

It’s almost five years followed on
And still I’m on my own
Maybe there’s something in that
Maybe I’ll die alone

I’ve met some men of this world
They treat me like you did
They think I’m only good for sex
Don’t bother knowing me

And all the time this heart of mine
Dies with so many tears
Cries with a wanting to be loved
Just like once I loved you

You had your fun with females
You had your fun with fire
You had your fun with beating me
Then told them I’m a liar

I want so much to move on here
And many times I’ve tried
But in the end it all comes back
When life was by your side

There part of me that carries on
That’s looking for a mate
But if they try get much to close
I then show them the gate

And still I cry in loneliness
For love that should be mine
But I just can not find it
My life I feel is stone

I wish sometimes I didn’t care
I wish for my release
I wish this stupid heart of mine
Would finally find some peace

Oh but for just one man in life
To love me like I you
My soul could then reach heaven
And my heart would rest as two

HOME

Never forget what you have
Your home is your haven and to let your hair down
The love of your home, its the place to be
With the love of all of your family
Home is truly where the heart is
Remember that the work day is done
Never bring home the toils from the day
Relax and have fun that is the way!
When you walk in the door you will see
The smiling faces of your family
Kiss them hello and have a good night 
Be aware that the home you have worked so hard for
Is the place to rest and relax and say
I have done all I can for this day is done its with the
Family, wow I am sure gonna have some fun!

To Love More And More

.
Death silently crept
In the night he came
One had to gently 
Close the eyelids down

Would you be distraught
Would your heart weep
If this were your plight
To close eyes in sleep

Eternal sleep now
Would your heart break within
Would you remember
The love that we shared

Or would you sing joy
Thank God she's gone
Being tired of daily
Having to serve the lady

Serve her by working
Bringing home the bacon
Or would you want 
To go on toward home

Joining the loveone
That shared your long life
I would not want to be
The one who had to close 

Those brown eyes in death
I would want to cheat death 
Iwould want you to met him
In the air with no care

Not knowing who will go
First to the eternal shore
Help me Holy Spirit 
To love more and more

Hey, Love, Come find me

Love, oh love
we hear it all the time
what is it with this bitty word
that makes us want to rhyme

it makes you light 
it makes you frothy
it makes your eyes gleam bright
it wisks us away
up off our feet
when we find such delight

but how i say
can it be obtained
must we look and seek
it could be there
in just a stare 
why don't you take a peek
do sparks fly
will it make you high
this question i need answered

 is it blind?
really blind?

as if a word could see

for the wives tales answer
quick and true
love is on the rise
but only if your patient
"DO NOT look and you will find?"

don't look, dont look
thats what you say to me
yep correct
hey thats right 
hey love, you come find me

and there he came 
charmed my world
and since no days apart
one summer night
and the winds were right
he put blinders on my heart

my, the years do flee
it started in highschool
and still carries on
a sweetheart legacy

trust me here
you'll get your turn
i tell you its prancing in
your heart will churn
a dream come true
and still you wonder when

Unlock your chains
sit back and wait
like butter time will melt
What your heart yearns
will bring years to pass
once you feel what i've felt

I'll Never Get Over You

If only I had seen it coming 
But I never knew
The day before you left me
I had one more day with you
If only I could turn back time
And bring back yesterday
If only I could tell you
All the things I need to say
If only I could hold you close
And kiss you just once more
If only I could see you smile 
As you walk through that door
Walking down this lonely road
Lost, alone and sad
Holding onto memories and dreams 
That we once had
I need you here to guide me 
For I know I’ll lose my way
Without you I’ll crumble 
Without you I’m not ok
I still don’t understand the reason 
Why you had to leave
I don’t know how to deal with this
I don’t know how to grieve
Looking in the mirror
I still see you in my eyes
And always I will love you
Because true love never dies
Everything I feel inside
Gets stronger everyday
The love that’s in my heart for you
Will never fade away
Everything we shared
And all the memories made together
Will live within my heart and soul
They'll stay with me forever
As long as there is night and day
As long as skies are blue
As long as stars still shine so bright 
I’ll never get over you...

The Other

A seismic change has come over me these last few days, 
Ever since I fell in love with a pure and generous heart 
And ever since I pledged myself to become worthy, 
Not only of his love – but God’s 
I have found myself turning my back on the past, 
Averting my gaze from the sins I used to commit, 
From the poisons and indecent beauties that tempt
Nowadays I seek to push aside the bottle of wine 
I turn my head away when a handsome man walks by 
Or at most sneak a fleeting glimpse…
Because for me now there is only one man 
My future husband 
Or so I would like to have myself believe – 
But at odd moments, I find that I tend to lapse 
And my thoughts stray across the desert sands to you 
Reclining in your murky den of iniquity, 
All entrancing liquid eyes and serrated sensibilities 
And sometimes, despite the stab of guilt, 
I find myself wishing I was there with you…
In your arms for one last night 
One last fling with the old devils of drink and death metal 
But then, thank goodness, I always manage to catch myself
To jerk at the reins, at the self imposed bit in my mouth, 
Until my jaws are flecked with bloody foam – 
And I turn my back on your face of demonic beauty 
And raise my eyes to the heavens, to distract myself, 
Perhaps, from the tempting darkness of your soul – 
A darkness that is mirrored in my own
And that I do my best to ignore…
For the sake of my future husband and for God, 
Who try their divine best not to blame me – 
Though heaven knows I still find sin much easier than virtue
And my heart still bears a black veneer
And throbs to the beat of a death metal drum

i have seen them on their knees 
i have seen them act like boys 
and fight when they freed
i am a woman 
with unspeakable needs
i have suffered enough 
for youre obsinities
i am back with avengence 
hear me roar 

hold on ... didnt i tell u this before

What if I Kissed You

A kiss, a kiss was all I asked for, symbolizing my undying admiration of you as a whole, tainting your lips with ones that have whispered sweet nothings to your ears, ears that I made stand on their toes for the unexpected, becoming more apprehensive, but so much has happened in the past few days, if there's one thing love's taught me, it's that kisses tell a million tales. What if I kissed you right now?.. would it bring us any closer or would we just part like the red sea, would our worlds as is hereafter speak of nothing but the good and our love grow to be as unexplainable as she.. what if I kissed you.. affections expressed in a moment where pet names linger across lips unrelenting. Eyes meet and faces draw together while our minds orbit elliptical periods around one another, deem it a solar system, stop the music like i stole ya rhythm &say we lost ourselves in the heat of our own passion, passing days by enveloped inside ourselves slow dancing to the beat of our hearts. Holding you close like I'd die letting you go, thinking, what if I kissed you right now... Could we make clocks stop till judgment day and be lovers in and out of time like Angelou stated, would be morph to the brink of combustion just being overwhelmed by each others touch, or would we just be? Never afraid of lions tigers and bears, but I cant help but fear becoming so sick, so sick of love sons turned penetrating enomolies like your kisses which obtained keepsake as a copious mannerism in my everyday agenda.. &writing this while you're asleep gives me all the comfort of a fourth wall closure, kissing your forehead as you lay on my shoulder thinking if only i'd done that while you were awake. but she&I were unceasing, so the kisses we'd share were even more memorable than Victoria's best kept secrets...

Fired Up

Fired Up

Suddenly slow, then frozen up…My heart began to pound.
My computer means so much to me. It’s my touch to the outside world.
Then my knight came in the door… determined my dragon to slay. 
And let me tell you… as dragons go… he can slay anything.

Dragon fire can be hot, but this one was immensely worse.
Nothing at all seemed to work. This dragon was really strong.
Shield after shield fell from my knights’ grip… 
But thank God… he never, ever gave up.

Night after night he fought with might and studied his foe with thought.
Each night he scanned every road… for where a lair could be stowed.
His sword swung with might nightly… erasing him from the land. 
But still the dragon was able to come back breathing fire upon all at hand.

He knew how to open every back door. He was cleverer than any I had seen.
But steady as a rock my knight and prince… continued to protect my way of life.
Finally, one day, with four new shields and with Excalibur by his side…
The dragon's spawn was slayed one last time,  then a miraculous silence remained…

My knight had sacrificed so much time and sleep… that I truly cried.
This dragon was from a far away land where more dragons are made with pride.
But my dear knight is willing to wait by my side… His shield and sword nearby.
Thank you I say with hugs and kisses… For my knight in shining armor, my life…

CURSED FROM BIRTH

written 17th Sept 2013



A lifetime of pain and suffering
 winning me over, to be loved and trusting

Now I find I'm alone again, it alway's ends the same
 will my life ever be more, than pain and nothing to gain

Emotionally damaged from the start, setting me free from my head
 as my body packs up, sentencing me to a year confined to bed

Finally I've become drug free, Nexium and Valium will always stay with me
 you have become so stressed, it's leading your love, to abandon me

I'm cursed, I have been since the day of my birth
 destined for a lifetime of nothing, even dirt has more worth 

Sorry I'm no good, I recall telling you this at the start
 it's me this time, to be left with the broken heart

I treasure our year before, filled with pure love and safety
 my heart and soul now and forever...will belong to you matey

Our QT Savior

In the cold of the morn with a crisp cloudy day…
A flat tire assailed a young girl, as she went on her way.
Young and full of life but definitely overwhelmed…
She was late for work and her husband had just nearly died.
She sat in her car, sniffling, worrying, and crying some wails.
She’d never changed a tire, a young husband always there.
But hurt he’d become, and in the hospital now remained…
It was up to her, suddenly alone, to make things right again.
She fretfully tried AAA but the wrong number was wrung…
Till Old Granny Goodness appeared with hope, and some fun.
She quickly got her out of the car, and found everything there.
Explaining what to do, Granny decided to entertain with flair.
Together they’d use a spare tire to fix that rickety old car.
They figured out the jack and successfully lifted the car.
But lug nuts are hard and need strength to unleash…
So granny fussed and she bug-tussled but never gave up
Till the young girl laughing, knew what she must do herself… 
Grabbing deep into her courage, she ran into the QT for help.
Sure enough, a worker volunteered to help that sweet young thing out.
And the lug nuts came off lickety-split with laughter on top.
The young man was gracious, and ever so kind and…
Yes, he finished the job with his best smile and in record time
And of course he helped put everything away, too, you can bet…
He even helped Old Granny Goodness up off the ground where she sat.
Then with a salute and fare thee well, he went back inside…
While Old Granny Goodness, and the girl put air in the tires.
By now the girl was the lead in the work as she smiled and laughed…
She was empowered; you know… there’s nothing wrong with that.
Yes, the world was saved as all found their way home, with a wink, at last.
Yes, with gratitude, a hug, and a smile… many a way can be found again.

Always

Walking with you all the way, because I missed you night and day. 
Holding your hand to help guide the way, in the light of the moon? 
Sunshine brightening our lives whispering ways, hold my hand, 
I want to be with you, up lift your soul in oh so many crazes. 
Hold you in my arms and remembering when our lives took us, 
Each to two separate places, what am I to do now? Eyes so clear, 
Pull your likeness... 
Closer to me now and cling to you at closed in spaces? 
Whisper in your ear that I have no grievances to spare, so come to me, 
Come to me now, I want you to be here, love me now, I have a life to share. 
The effects are rollin over our bodies, like it can’t decide, 
Caught in between here and taking you out to be the ride of your life.

Perfection

I'm the perfect example of what not to do
I'm the perfect depiction of words untrue.
I've perfected the art of being contemptuous.
I've perfected the notion of how to obsess. 

I'm the perfect wife in every sense of the word,
I'm the perfect partner who’s loud and absurd.
I’ve mastered the art of lies and deceitfulness.
I’ve mastered the skills of emotional distress.

I’m the perfect mate, if instability is sought.
I’m the perfect spouse; leaving you distraught. 
I’ve conquered your insecurities, and your trust.
I’ve conquered your inability to state the unjust. 

I’m the perfect paradigm of how to regress.
I’m the perfect instance of turmoil finesse.
I’ve flawlessly sneered, as we both lay awake.
I’ve perfected the notion; this love’s a mistake.

away with the sun

Its getting late
but you already came 
and while you were here
things never change 
you lay with me
and tell me your words
then you leave 
and I feel hurt.
Its not you that hurts me 
but the sound of the door
closing behind you 
I know for sure 
you'd like to stay 
but you never do
I'm left alone 
missing you. 
These days its more frequent 
you leave so much
that you're gone more hours 
than the day brings sun
and I have begun 
to feel so numb
when the door closes 
another night I run
far away from the thoughts I have 
because its killing me to look
at my empty hands
I remember when we were on the sand 
you told me you loved me
but you weren't my man 
and so I walked, feeling okay
but too many months 
now I want you to stay
Am I selfish?
asking too much?
You only visit me an hour
after dusk
and I must go on
but should I stay?
when you see me sometimes
but its always too late.

A Constanza Memory

The anniversay golden  
Comes only once in a lifetime
Time to remember when in prime

Gifts owned were somewhat then hidden
God lifted us up brought us out
He transformed without a doubt

Digging; water sprang in garden
Seed planted began to grow
Slow but steadily spirit know

Brought forth; built up once downtrodden
Encouraged new creation growth
Transformation began in both

Now burden lifted, heart gladden
Truly can celebrate marriage
Of growth;each other anchorage

The anniversay golden
Gifts owned were somewhat then hidden
Digging_water sprang in garden
Brought forth; built up once downtrodden
Now burden lifted, heart gladden

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!

THE HAND THAT MINDS THE AUTHOR

THE HAND THAT MINDS THE AUTHOR 

( for Christie Achebe) 

The hand that minds the author

What is life like rivalling words?

When you decked your bed with persian sheet

And stuffed your pillow with the autopedics

When you perfumed your room with arabian scent

And wore your pyjamas to thrill and kill

In books he shrouded himself

Romancing words like butterfly roses

Hours on your feet you stood

Tampered butter,tampered flour

Gazing clock,gazing oven;

Icing sugar and fondant craft

You perfected, though fluffy,

His appetite was for words

When he woke you up from slumber

Asking for neither food nor peck

But only to appraise his newest bride:

''How do you see this Christie?''

Often you yielded:''words are paints

With which your rainbow is made.''

Your fortitude is commendable:

24/7 in libraries

Visiting schools,visiting books

Pruning students, pruning teachers;

But when Christie,when did your

Hearthrob come to you?

How do I resist this love

I'm trying to concentrate, on what needs to be done
But with him standing right there
Right before my eyes, holding back 
So many emotions, mix inside, I try not to cry
For this anger, has me pushing back, deep in the ditch
But, when he tries to touch me, how do I resit

My heart feels the truth, the truth on my feelings
It feels the love, I' m hiding from him
I continue to work, avoiding any eye contact
Getting his things, so he can be at ease

No, he touches me, my body wants to melt 
Melt deep inside, as I feel no air to breathe
But, has he places his hands around my body
Bringing me in closer and closer
My body stumbles to the floor
My inside are tingly in many, many ways

How do I resist this love, I have for him
He was my best friend, a diary at night
Security to my soul, there is no way I can let go
My heart it melts for him, my wall wants to go up
Keeping guards on his musical notes
Reaching his hand out, lifting me from the floor
Trying to show me, I'm his

I dazed into his eyes, as I realize, I'm truly in love 
I'm in love with him, yes husband dear
It's going to take some time, for my heart to be at peace
To let him go, I can not do, for I will not forgive or forget
But , I can give it a try, give love another chance

See what fate can truly do, for me, and also you

The Deadly, Fatal Kiss Of The Spider Woman

After she drank his bitter wine of selfish, pathetic love
She slyly sang him her haunted chant 
"The laughs on you", she crooned in her soft malicious tune

At times, she could act with chicane
She had many charms when treated well...
Deadly ones - when not
Oh yes...
She herself may at times have sinned
But he-had the stain of evil, paltry love

Now...Inside her gossamer labyrinth she lay
Carefully, diligently spinning her web
Revealing nothing-and everything
She'd weave her silky snare inside his heart
Laying her toxic eggs of betrayed despair
Spinning her poisonus venom of painful truth

Oh yes...
Her bite is deadly now
She could have been his 'Velvet Rose'
But, he crushed her petals rare
Ending her silken dreams
With his evil malicious schemes
Her spider's web became untethered
Attaching itself by a single thread
To his shoddy veil of evil, selfish love
    Now...She is the hunter
    And...He is the hunted
In the coming eve... 
She'd deliver her poisonous, lethal sting
He'd be noones's lover now
Her threads would cut his miserable flesh
Her deadly venom would seal his fate
Remaining nothing more
Than an ancient, slithering shadow
All along the castle walls

For some time a deadly secret she doth keep
"Revenge”, she whispers, while he sleeps
 
She was once his only lady
With ivory skin and beauty fair
She fed him nectar from her raven hair
His betrayal seared her hemorrhaged heart
She'd warned him with many words and fiery stares

"Thou shalt not indulge in wicked fare
Be ever so watchful, do not betray
Beware, where thou heart doth leave
Take heed" said she, "Just who thy seed deceives".

In her chamber dark at night, this maiden fair
Planned his demise with scourged nectar, bitter sweet
Stirring her venomous, poisonous treat
Or would dagger to his heart she’d plant
Bid him die a dark and painful lingering death
Upon his sleeping body that she'd leave 
As she crept silently into his chamber - 
These words she bitterly but victoriously said...

"Thou shalt betray no more. 
Thou has sinned against me...
Taken my love in shame
"Betray no more", she said".
     But now
Thou is thankfully, forever DEAD!"

Her silken threads had cut his miserable flesh
Her deadly venom had sealed his fate
    Now...he remained nothing more
Than an ancient, slithering shadow...
All along her castle walls

I Love You Because You Are You

Baby when I think of you, my heart
longs for you, when I see you, my heart beats fast
and uncontrollably, and when you speak to me,
my ears hear an angel, and it's musical,
and I am right I am supossed to be.
When you say my name, I get butterflies in my
stomach. Baby, I don't love noone but you. The only 
guy that really attracted me from first sight is you. I
love being German, and I love being married to my
German. I can't love anyone else but you, baby
I've finally found my perfect match. I can't
stay away from you, when we are in different classes
I just wanna get up and find you, my heart always
leads me to you. Ich Liebe Dich Saugling!(I Love You Baby.)
Du bist fur immer.(You Are Mine Forever)
Baby you own my heart. Take care of

Trampled Marriage

Squashed, like an Ant, on the ground.
My heart ached, when you left that day.
Crushed, my future dreams, you were bound.
By past recalls, of what did not, last anyway.
You walked, on my spirit, pretending to know.
What, my desires and my mind would say.
That I, would forever stay, here and never go,
I knew that you were a spirit, longing to be free.
My spirit locked in love, though you did not see.
For you, my old fashion ties, to a master degree,
Walking over, moving out, and taking a piece of me.
Treading on devotions, eager for greener pastures,
Though you found, fallows, dried up on his postures.
Your body returned to me, though your heart mistaken.
Our feelings, emotional desires, lost, never to awaken.

MY GREATEST DREAM

My greatest dream is called you...
A dream I hold so closely to my heart...
A dream I couldn’t give a worthy name to just yours...
You have always been my dream called love...
Your voice is as calm and peaceful as the nature of a dove...
Your words... I can’t start to explain...
They turn shadows into human...
They bring all my dead side into life...
Love can never be explained but it is understood perfectly by your heart and mine...
The impossible can only bend when love is on duty because with you there is nothing too
impossible for me to do...
For me living with men is history because you are an angel sent to me from above to
deliver me from my misery...
No better fantasy can ever be wished for and accomplished than this dream of mine called
you...
Now I know what it feel like touching and staring into those beautiful stone of crystals
called the stars which are in your eyes...
I can say I have been touched by an angel because only angels can take me to that place
only us have reached...
I now can see what my hearts eyes have been missing for long...
I now feel what my heart has been longing to feel forever...
Am glad I found you...
You are the most priceless thing that recreates a heart no matter how broken it is...
I AM GRATEFUL FOR THE GIFT OF YOU...

Tragic Love

The Love eye have for ewe is just the same as iff we wed. 
The feelings that she gives me are never filled with dread. 
But nothing she can dew would make me ever want to wind up dead but the 
living do the love they do the life time instead. Eye could walk the halls of memory 
and get depressed or eye could become a nun in convicted pleasure and rest in 
convent until death can dew us part death can give me rest but what of love. How 
can a man get so excited at a little green dot a few mouse clicks and then a cold 
white chat box. The ink is never wet upon mye crinkle paper yet there it is its love. 
When she smiles at me eye smile when she frowns eye weep a river of the 
stuffins kept inside it all comes flowing out to make a wrongful death seem 
somehow write the words upon the mended heart depart from worry and from 
woe and take the brand new start and soon it all works for love. Snow White she 
ate the apple and then fell to fast asleep but Charlax came to kiss her and 
awakened her to live. Prince Charlax kisses good. 
Live upon the creek bank fishing for dragonflies in a house of love. Mending heart 
of Charming. Making love in heart. Mye snow white turtle love my pookie 
pochoucntous love my internet thrall. We can have it all just hold on to my 
namme and love. 
Researchers have now proven that love can mend a broken heart.

Water under the bridge

You have my heart and you should know that by now,
But too often, you still find doubt somehow.
Do you really not know, that like you there will never be another?
For me, there isn’t nor will there ever be any other.
No man holds a candle to you. You are a man among men.
When it comes to this heart you win.
Why you think so little of your self I will never know.
Do you  not see the love and admiration I so blatantly show?
Do you not know that I would walk through a desert
Of burning heat, so that I could lay my heart at your feet?
Is our love on ground that shaky?
Do you really believe my love to be so flaky?
What gives you reason to be so insecure?
What more do I have to do for you to be reassured?
I thought by now these childish games would have passed?
How can you not know this love was built to last?
I am committed and dedicated not just for you,
But for myself to see this love on through.
These are the trials that separate the weak from the strong,
This is what decides who will be standing
 at the end of a day that has been too long.
This will not be our defeat, nor our downfall.
It’ just another thing, and we won’t sweat the small.
So just take my hand and let us carry on.
And soon these troubles between us will be all but gone.

Just for you

Many may say this, 
But I live this. 
When I have your kiss, 
Nothing is amiss. 

My heart warms up when I hear your call, 
When you say my name, 
You make me fall, 
Even deeper I can proclaim. 

When you touch me, 
Your hand on my skin, 
It's where I want to be, 
You make my head spin. 

When your away, 
My heart hurts from our parting, 
I need you to stay, 
To stop it from aching. 

As easy as it is to admit my love, 
The fear for hurt overcomes.

Please stay and learn slow
How much love I have to show.

His Fickle Heart - a constanza

Once, this man, to me came.
   I fell in love too deep, too fast.
   A love I knew would forever last.

My heart was true, his played a game.
   I thought that he loved me too.
   That his love, like mine, was forever true

We were wed, I changed my name.
   I was happy for some years
   not expecting the coming tears.

Things would never be the same
   after he suddenly broke my heart.
   For he'd moved on, we had to part.

But his fickle heart I could not tame.
   He was never really in love with me
   but a woman in love sees what she wants to see.

Once, this man, to me came.
My heart was true, his played a game.
We were wed, I changed my name.
Things would never be the same
but his fickle heart I could not tame.

Fresh Paint

The smell of fresh paint lingers
in my nose, in the air.
Crisp sheets lay smooth,
untouched with 
hospital corners.
I dreamed of holding you
in our bed.
A king size bed is too big for one.
Wedding gifts are strewn across
our dining room table.
I dreamed of eating together there
as man and wife,
candlelit dinners,
and meals with laughing children...
dreams that will never come true.
A family room quietly sits alone
without a family.
A yard waits outside for a garden
that will never be planted.
Nothing is as it seems.
Only my flowing tears are real tonight.
A new home, a new marriage...
but my other half is only here
in spirit.
Only one returned from 
our honeymoon...
I wish it was me who died that dark night.
The doctors said nothing could be done...
A silent killer stole you from sleep and from me
while I slept next to you...
nothing could be done,
a beginning and an end.
Life changes in a moment.
Now, our dream home is for sale.
The dream is gone.
I cannot bring myself to sleep in our bed,
so I make up the couch tonight...again.
My heart calls out for you.
My arms reach out for you.
I taste your lips on mine.
I smell you, see you, hear your voice
whispering my name.
Your touch lingers with 
the smell of fresh paint.

I'll Let You See

I'll let you see.
For you  will blind me,
As you watch the heart of the young and old.
By one,by two,by three.
I'll let you see.
You will steal me,
May you have  possessiveness of others feeling.
By four,by five,by six.
I'll let you see.
And you will guild me to the light ,
To fall and fall but never be hurt.
By seven,by eight,by nine,and ten
I'll let you see.
For you shall bind an blind me, 
I've written my  will.
Watching the heart of the young and old, 
Just for the sake of there minds and your heart.

Sweet Rap

I'm gonna speak my mind, I'm gonna talk loud.
I want you to come with me, and the rest of your hot crowd.

Excuse-me-ladies, come over, and take a sip.
Please-be-with-me, I'm well equipped in the hips.

I've dreamed of you, since the day I could crawl.
Dropped my jaw, when I saw, y'all, tall, in the hall.

So, sit back, relax, on the bench, I'm the coach.
As I move close, start to make my approach.

When I look in your eyes, I can't explain how I feel.
For real, chill, in your beauty, time sits still.

I would swim the across the seas, just to get one sight.
Of all your beauty, Cutie, and to kiss you goodnight.

Drop, and hop, right over the winning team.
Cause, U without me, is like strawberries, without cream.

Just remember one thing, before my rap quit.
My name is T Rabbit and I'm your number one pick!

Your on My Mind

Your on My Mind

From the moment I wake your all I think about
From sun up to sun down
Your on my mind
I can’t concentrate for daydreaming about you
You have me feeling like a teen in love
Butterflies running free within me 
I am nervous like when we first met
When you flash that brilliant smile 
Baby, you make it all worth while
Those pretty brown eyes are dangerous
They immobilize me with just one glance
My heart feels as if it is under a trance
The love I feel for you is oh so real
I wish you knew how you make me feel
Like every good dream I have ever had is in fact real
It was you back in the beginning that helped my heart to heal
You are my guiding light
To tell the truth you are my everything 
I can’t stop thinking about you
You are all that fills my heart 
All that I speak of
What did I ever do without you
You were on my mind then 
And you are on my mind now
With a husband like you who would want to think of anything else

Why So Painful?

I stand, utterly hollow and alone.
 Staring and wondering if he'll phone.

Why is it he has this hold over me?
 Why can't he just leave me be?

One minute, I think I'm over him, 
 then all those thoughts and feelings begin.

The biggest part of me knows we can't be together, 
 but then I remember, we vowed it was to last forever.

I think of the name calling, and him being so vile.
 Then here comes the happy memories followed by bile.

My throat burns, from the bile and from the pain.
 A lump, stuck there as the tears fall like summer rain.

How does one get over the hurt and betrayal?
 He's nothing at all like his first portrayal. 

I thought he was loving, kind, and an honorable man.
 Was his facade all part of some cruel, sinister plan?

How can you ever put your heart out there again?
 I can not begin to tell you how heart wrenching its been. 

I feel sorry for him, that he has to put me down.
 Its the only way he can make himself feel renown.

I just wonder when the pain will start to subside.
 I truly don't know how much longer I can stay on this ride. 

One part of me still loves him, for I am still his wife.
 The other part, can not keep putting myself through the strife.

A husband and wife are expected to go through dissension.
 Love shouldn't have to be this hard though, its too much tension.

How do you say good-bye to a man you love and equally hate?
 I never thought I would feel the love I have for him abate. 

I fear a divorce is in order, as I do not feel he will ever change.
 Its not like for the last two years we haven't been estranged. 

I wish I could say that I want to wish him all the best.
 But I don't since he's left this ragged, raw hole in my chest.

I know that's not the ladylike way to be.
 However, you have no idea what he's done to me.

I once tried to see the best in people, and love fierce.
 Well, with his coldness, my heart did he pierce. 

I can only hope to one day, heal my broken heart.
 He should be ashamed, for tearing my faith in love apart. 

But I forgive him for all that he has ever done.
 You see, it is I who will be the bigger and better one.

I only hope I can one day try my hand again at love.
 And I hope its him that I will no longer be thinking of

Destined Day

The flowers
the flowers
are crying, you see,
as they cling to the wood
that encompasses me
and the heart that still loves
the now widow above
who will hopefully never forget

that

the husband
the husband
all covered in fleurs
who now sleeps in the earth
is still grateful to her
and the heart that still pines
for the lover enshrined
who has never once thought to regret

all

the moments
the moments
that love had endowed
and 
the kisses
the kisses
that came with the vow
to
his lover
his lover
who will not allow

her memories--
to wither away,
unlike the fleurs
on destined day.

Passion in D-Major

Passion in D-Major


Feeling, the sensuous brush-
strokes on a canvas,

swirling,

to a symphonic crescendo,

of our shared heartbeats,

fading between the notes,

feeling your soft body entwined 
with mine,

your form bathed in my infinite 
kisses,

our orchestral desire rising,

conducting a shared fusing of 
passion,

... the music echoing ...

over the precipice,

on the brink of dazzling rainbow 
hues,

lost in the void,
of an eternal instant,

plunging through the depths of 
rhyme,

pleading,
forever pleading,

for a prolonged,

bouquet of shared time.

Once Upon a Time

Its done, its over, I have no more left to give, 
you've taken every breath that made me want to live. 
I am no longer myself, 
just some image you take down from your shelf, 
whenever you want to play the part 
of a loving husband with a caring heart.
 I should have know all this from the start, 
then right now my world wouldn't be falling apart. 
My heart wouldn't feel so much pain, 
and I'd know whether I should listen to my brain, 
or try to make this work for our daughters sake.
 But life with you is no longer a piece of cake. 
The words you say cut to the core, and sting like a knife, 
is this how a man should be treating his wife? 
You think because your the financial provider, 
I am supposed to cower to you like a cornered spider. 
My soul doesnt bend that way, 
my heart will not allow me to stay, 
in a place where I can not see the sun, 
and my own will cannot be done. 
Its ok with you, you dont really want us here, 
it'd be better off if we were to just disappear, 
and get out of your hair, 
we're not welcomed anywhere,
where you or your family reside, 
it's just best we step aside. 
We'll find our own way, never letting anyone get to close, 
because once upon a time the man I loved hurt me the most.

Three Words

In these pages so unbound,
I find the grace to be;
In a flame that dances so,
I can finally see.
Is this the page within my dreams?
Are these the words of life?
Do the hours finally fall
To make a heart a wife?
Dearly I have prayed for her --
Oh the tears I've wept.
Let me touch that heart of gold
That I cannot forget.
And the words I long to hear
So deep within my soul,
A whisper, more than I can bear; 
Three words and I am whole.

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.

The Hermaphrodite: My Hero

A defender of justice, my stately Viking icon 
A hermaphroditic mystery unfounded fears surrounding.
Reigns victorious over odium, an unlikely champion. 
This brave genius subjugates falsehoods by telling…

My husband is my hero having faced differences alone.
One true champion loves; my darling has forgiven many men.
Caring instead of detesting those with hatreds so well honed.
Knowing the lack of understanding when false judgments begin.

Compassion brings to tears any tragedy borne by others.
Brawn builds a safety net protecting me from foes.
Wisdom wields a loving way of relating to our brothers.
Great insight healed my weary heart and understanding grows.

Educated intellectually and spiritually inclined.
My warrior against evil defends God’s goodly ways.
The front-runner to forgiveness with happy hopes refined.
Walking along a righteous path, together strengthening, love stays.

The victor over loneliness, now, my heart does profess.
No matter whether judgment flies, reality remains.  
There is no greater love than our love, by God blessed. 
Except for the love of God himself that never distains.

Alone, Alone

"Alone, Alone"
           By Rachel Heffington

Often, often I have wondered
At the dusking of the night
Where my love is wand'ring, wand'ring
While I stand in shimm'ring light.

Standing, standing, waiting only
For the day God brings him here,
He to view me, lovely, lovely,
And to whisper something dear.

Daily, Daily I have waited
Pledging heart and hand to one
Who will find me, faithful, faithful
At at the rising of the sun.

Rising, rising, ever upward,
And my heart on wings will soar
As I see him, waiting, waiting
For me on the glimm'ring shore.

Throbbing, throbbing--heart's own day-dreams
Stab and squeeze my heart anew,
At the beauty, precious beauty
In this sketch, my love, of you!

My Beloved (Part I)

                      He who finds a wife has found a good thing.  This is why I came forth 
to meet you, diligently to seek your face, and now I have found you- and my heart 
is still rejoicing.  I will rejoice with you, my wife.  I have remembered the covenant 
of our God, and because of you I have found favor in His eyes to drink waters, 
fresh waters, out of my own cistern, out of my own well, and my fountain shall be 
blessed.  I will be ravished with your love always.  I will lie down with you only and 
share the warmth of your body, for you are virtuous.  You are my crown.  I will have 
joy in you all the days of my life.  So, love me and know me as I know and love 
you.
	Your name is like an expensive perfume that is poured forth, like the 
fragrance upon your garments to delight my soul.  As i gaze upon your figure, I 
see that you are perfect and unique.  How beautiful you are, fairest among 
women; majestic as the troops with banners, there is no flaw in you.  Only you 
are pleasant to me, my love, pleasing with all your delights.  Behind the veil and 
the locks of your hair, you have stolen my heart with one glance of your eyes.  
They overwhelm me, the eyes of a dove, beautiful like the pools of Heshbon, and 
your nose is as the tower of Lebanon that looks toward Damascus.  Your cheeks 
are like rows of rubies and beds of sweet flowers and spices.  Your lips are like 
scarlet ribbons dripping sweet smelling myrrh.  They drip like the honeycomb, so 
kiss my body softly with the kisses of your mouth, for your love is better than 
wine.

A Zombie Heart

The heart, between love and dark driven apart.

From the very first to the very last,
to the future and from the past.

From the begining of the end,
to wars waged out of love instead of sin.

My heart wicked and bitter filled with hate,
people said i could never love, but i love me, i throw into the debate.
No remorse, no sorrow for the wicked, for humans i believed it was too late.

I believed all people deserved what they sowed into the world, and they sowed death.
I thought about how beautiful it would be till the world burned into ash, and nothing was left.
In my eyes this world was done and over, it was already F'd.

But that was then, when my heart was filled with sin. And this is now.
I often wonder what happened, to my brutal state. My twisted mind gone, but how?
Once I stood before people, robes of blood and death. Worshipped, to me they bow.

I guess, even I, should remain honest. The Dead King's heart burst into life.
I fell in love, not the kind where it feels like a gut wrenching twisting knife.
But the kind, where to her, I want to be kind. And make her my dark queened wife.
For her, I would make her life easy, she would never know any strife.

The first look at her, when we fought, how she smiled covered in blood and clots.
I knew than, i was in love, my heart racing. My head thumping covered in knots.
How we turned to and away from each other in our onsloughts.
The more we hated and pulled away the closer we grew, like slip knots.

I knew my heart than grew soft and my feelings for you grew tender.
If you woulden't have stopped I would of let you win, and let you end me, even as a dismember.
I would of checked out for my final point, with you as my sender.
My feelings were spinning, like gore and guts in a blender.

I know, that no matter what. My feelings for you, were not a hit and miss.
I know, that with our love. We can experence joy and even gliss.
Our love started, from me a growl and you a hiss.
And with our dieing breath it will end in a kiss.

My Love Bendeth Near

My love says I shall not beguile you with my tongue, but rather with my soul. “Go, do not be a prisoner to my heart or fettered by my rose, for I give it freely, having picked it clean from its thorns so it may not prick thy finger. For it be naught thy blood I wish to draw, lest I use it as a balm to soothe thy soul

Accept my flower...for it is given freely to send thoughts of a lover’s song to tug at thy ear. If doors before have sent you wandering... become a dweller at my tree for I am the root, therefore, I become the leaves that shade you from blisters of the sun that rendereth rays too harsh for thy tender skin

Eat not the bread of those with an eye to devour thy soul, but nourish thy self with the drink of my wine given to quench thy throat when you are dry of thirst. For it is a true heart that bendeth close to draw you near to me. Allow my light to shine in thy soul, breathing solace to thy weary heart.

Faith: The Antidote to Man's Midlife Crisis

It's raining and the sun has returned home
although I am by myself, yet I am not alone
mind engages intellect, with time to consider
how this heart of mine, has grown so bitter

Not long ago, reflections of the past were a delight
then in a brief moment, my happiness took flight
once having a life with meaning, love and security
now with remorse and desire, for a heart with purity

Continuing to pursue life normally, while anxieties drown the mind
no matter what I might do, any sense of happiness seems confined
confused with mixed emotions, and knowing that they are both true
yet despite my conflict, still mustering the will to tell her, I love you

With each and every passing day, I look forward to behold
once again to greet those yesterdays, those yesterdays of old
but those yesterdays are buried, the fear of the future takes hold
all of what now remains, are those few tomorrows left to unfold

Worries must stem from this lack of control, how not to consider
thinking of how few years are left to live, could anyone not be bitter
the unknown of what the rest of your life will bring, an awesome fear
when you advance in years, only then does it become all too clear

Times passes, the body ages, memories flounder, and reality sets in
maybe tomorrow the mail will arrive, addressed to: The Next of Kin
finding yourself in an emotional upheaval, there is but one thing to do
forage deep down inside, and uncover your faith, your only rescue

Faith will give you the strength, it will guide you to trust in the One above 
fears of the future and of the unknown, disappear in this world called love
experiencing midlife crisis, something you can and will successfully overcome
but first never stop searching, trusting in G-d, and to depression never succumb

My heart

For you my heart im willing to share
because I really care
no matter what the future holds
my love for you will continue to grow

it's nice to have a man like you
if you leave 
I wouldnt know wat to do
you so kind, gentle, and sweet
above all, you chose me

you fill my heart with a bit of cheer
I will cherise you my dear
forever grateful I will be
if you stay and never leave
but if your love decide to slip away
my light house will guide you back my way
from temptation that fog your eyes
when you around I feel so alive....

Breakfast Love

Breakfast begins with out a care
 Waffles and applesauce
 Thats what love is
 This mourning here with you
 I just reminisced 
Our first kiss
 And this mourning
 It's applesauce to you
 And just because
 I hit life's pause
 I now give sauce
 And it's because 
Of the things you do

Knight

Like the girl with golden hair
awaiting her fateful kiss
you came from outta nowhere
my knight, my graceful prince
My hand you hold my heart you took
like the fairy tale told in that story book

Happily ever after
was on that last page
this girl that you captured
became a puppet on your stage

This Knight that you promised
turned black by day
This soul slowly vanished
and life began to fade

Happily ever after
was on that last page
this girl that you captured
became a puppet on your stage

My hand you hold, my heart you took like the fairy tale told in that story book
my hand you hold, my heart you took my tears fall cold with one last look

Happily ever after
was on that last page
this girl that you captured
became a puppet on your stage

A Special Kind Of Love

                 Our love is one of a kind
            A togetherness no one can define
           We can read one anothers minds
           And know the others desires 
           Our time together is precious and special
                A bond no one can break
                A relationship brought about by our Lord
                        Some view it with scorn
                  They are envious and wish us to part
            To be alone and hurting like they are
         But we pass them by without a second glance
   For our love was not brought about by chance
  How can we expect others to understand  
         A love they have never experienced
    Even when we are apart we are in one another's hearts
  Our love grows stronger everyday 
     You make me laugh
         And I get a little rush every time we touch
      You've given me your heart and your trust 
A romance mapped out in the stars 
           Destined to meet
            A special kind of love
Known only to those precious few 
 Whom open their heart and mind
To something so incredible 
It happens only once in a lifetime.

DEAR LOVE

Remember when we met 
That Lover's Day, 
Our hearts connect 
In your heart I vowed to stay 

And then we parted 
My heart was guarded 

Remember when I first told you 
Those sweet words? 
When I heard them 
And tears came down my face? 

Dear lover, 
Lest you know, 
Promises made or not, 
This is not a lie, 
My love for you, 
Will never die. 

As I sit on my bed 
And think about you 
A smile creeps from the corner 
Of my mouth going farther 
Because your thought 
Makes everything better. 

Dear lover 
You should know, 
I give my all 
And I live for you.

Under Attack

How long have you waited,
for the memories to cease?
How long have you suffered,
as they took piece by piece?

I’ve seen the emotional anguish,
in your heart and in your eyes.
I’ve heard the horrid events,
on the news and thru your lies.

You tell me it wasn’t that bad,
as the media described it to be.
You tell me that living in Iraq,
was a small price paid to be free.

But I don’t see you liberated;
I see a man who’s lost and alone.
Still under attack each night;
silently residing in a combat zone.

Our lives have forever changed,
your heart has turned to black.
Suffering by yourself in solitude,
as you wait for the next attack.

My fragile heart that beats for you..

Who will hold me in their arms and tell me things will be alright 
who Will stroke my hair at night and whisper tender feelings twice
Who will know just what to say to help me make it through the day
Who will kiss me on my lips and feel me melt right into his
Who will touch me in that way that sends me floating to the stars
To never hold you in my arms or kiss your tender lips again 
I feel it’s hard to bear 
I want so much to hold you close I don't think I can cope
My heart was whole when I was with you, it fluttered like a bird in flight
It soared up high and through the night
My love I was amazed by you and everything you made me feel
To never have this love again sends panic to my head, 
I know I have to muddle through another desperate day
And all around are memories of times we shared and happy days
How can I forget all this and get myself through my day...
                
The answer is I won’t forget and really I don't want to,
But I will learn to hold these thoughts inside a special place,
I will have to try to learn to try to cope with life alone
To be strong, and stronger still, 
Until my heart can once again be brave enough to walk alone.
But for now I need to say my love my heart is broke in two
And you, you hold it in your hands to hold for ever more...
So when I’m feeling life’s too hard and my head’s all in a whirl
I’ll remember all the words youve said and dream your arms around me 
The arms that sheltered me from harm will forever hold me safe 
And time will heal my broken heart, but for now I feel it so,
Like searing heat that cuts in two my fragile heart that beats for you

Beyond repair

All those years,
All those years of loving her,trying to take the best care of her that I could.
Maybe I tried to hard,maybe it was my fault,
Maybe I loved her to much,is there such a thing?
My mind all tied in knots,
My heart feels like it's on fire.
No doctor or pill can ease the feelings that rage inside me.
The trust,the love,the devotion that I had for her shattered in a heartbeat.
Don't know if I should hate her or love her more,
I feel used,hurt,destroyed,
Like an old machine.
I feel like my heart is.....
Beyond repair.

Love is blind

Love is blind 
And so hard to find 
Close your eyes and see 
Not out, but inside me 

That's where my heart is 
I'll show you with just one kiss 
Your heart so sweet 
Your eyes so beautiful 

And when our lips meet 
It feels so wonderful 
This love I found so nice 
Because your heart is not cold like ice.

Should I

Love runs deep
But hurt runs deeper still
I can't sleep
Maybe never will

You held my world in your hand
Caried my heart and soul with you
Crushed it into the sand
Made my world blue

So now you want my trust again
You want it all back without having to work at it
Want to be my lover and best friend
I can only give a little bit

Not sure if I should ever try
After all the tears
Yes you made me cry
Many times in fifteen years

I close my eyes and can see you in my arms
But yet I know how many times you let me down
You know your charms
And act like a clown

You always knew how to make me smile
We had our good times along with the bad
But is it worth the endless miles
Of heart ache that you made me feel all the times you got mad

I don't know if I can let you back in to my heart
I am not sure I can take it once more
You have the power to tear me apart
Should I let you in or lock the door

Finding Your Heart

Slowly drifting through this world
Never listening yet never being heard
I am so lost and confused
Why am I the one that always has to lose?
When will my heart find yours?

Crawling daily through life’s ups and downs
Living each down with my face in a frown
My heart never flutters or ever skips a beat
I ever anticipate when our souls will meet.
My heart will soon find yours.

As I’m going through life ever still
A rush over my body, suddenly I feel
This feeling is something I’ve never felt before
It’s warm and refreshing, it opened the door
To my heart as it found yours.

Your love has truly opened my eyes
My whole world is now comprised
Of joy and contentment within my soul
After all this time, I finally know
That my heart has found and will never lose yours.

don't light it up
don't burn it up
don't leave it in the dark

Blinded on My Wedding Day

Convince that you are the one for me.

Persuaded that I am the one you need.

Deceived that you desire my love.

Refused to see the truth so I wait.

Believing that your heart is not filled with hate.

I cry for my Heart that I am not confused.

Praying to God that I am not just being used.

Blinded by the, Yes I will marry you!

Consumed by the, Will you marry me?

Walking down the aisle to meet my groom, didn't realize it was the day of my doom! 

Oh! What can I say. Blinded on My wedding Day.

King David and my David

I knew a little shepherd boy,
handsome and full of courage.
He once slew a bear,
with a hand bare of weapon.
He had snuffed out the life of a lion,
And giants were toys he could break.
He was strong at heart and body
A man after God's heart he was.
Yet, he had his flaw,
and was weak as any man could be.
He once hewed coal on his chest,
and was burnt to the marrow thereof.
Though, great pardon he got when he repented,
yet, the scare was too much to fade.
Biblical King David is my hero indeed,
For I have learnt from his strength and weakness.
Another David now I have.
He is my hero and prince charming,
A kind and loving husband,
who can give out his precious eyes, 
for another to know the joy of seeing.

Forever She Dreams

“Forever She Dreams”
By: Christian Shepherd

I want her back in my arms,
to feel her breathe on my neck.
Her every breathe detectable on my chest.
To hold her close from leaving me.

Watch her as she sleeps,
to hold her close in a slumber so deep.
Watch as her expressions tell a dream,
her temporary reality.

Tell her to "sleep tight love,
I’ll see you in the morning."
Wake up to her by my side,
without her my heart unforgivingly bleeds.

I don’t want to be without you, 
the thought brings melancholy.
I want you with me, 
"please don’t leave me,” I plead.

But its too late for pleas,
fate has already made its judgment.
Now she is forever gone,
and I am empty.

I still bleed. 
I wish I could go back to her.
Savor every moment i took for granted.
But for now my heart still bleeds.

Lying at night kills me,
looking over where she slept.
Seeing her figure in the shadows,
knowing only that it is wishful thinking.

Still i reach over, hoping to find its rest.
I pray that rest may be her shoulder.
The shoulder that I used to cry on.
The should that now could stop my pain.

Then anger stirs inside of me,
"WHY HER! COULD YOU NOT LET HER BE!"
She was mine, not yours,
its not fair, let her be, bring her back to me!

There’s no way, fate has made its choice,
and now forever she dreams.

So for now…until the blood runs out...I bleed.

What Should A Love Story Be

What should the perfect love story be?
Maybe about the future or past history

Maybe the story should just be about today
If it were your final breath what would you say?

The Lord is the maker and the keeper of time
He is the giver of love and all that’s divine

How can any love story not involve him?
The keeper of truth, the forgiver of sin

Jesus Christ is the father and I am but a seed
Regardless of the path I shall follow his lead

I praise God for the pain that hinders my way
For it truly does offer plenty of time to pray

The more that I pray the more clearly I see
Exactly what a perfect love poem should be

It should be hot as the desert, beautiful as the snow
Born way deep in the heart so it can forever glow

It should speak the honest truth about your dearest friend
How the strength of your love helped each of you to mend

The story should be of two lovers, bound by the soul
Yet each is has the freedom to leave, if they wish to go

You see true love was truly intended for us to caress
Tell me, “How can an unseen entity ever be possessed”

Love is a part of your heart and a part of your soul
So please caress it, bless it and make it your goal

And that’s what a true love poem is really about
Cherishing each others love through all the doubt

A real man

Message body 
 
         A real man 
Body so sleek and made to perfection 
Knowledge and grace and the touch of compassion 
A smile of a king ,lips that are made to perfection 
Built with indescribable beauty 
 
Always playful with ones words bring the feeling of curiosity 
desire in the eyes with a sensitive touch of a gentlemen 
your heart  beating with mine 
those eyes that spark chills 
 
Divine understanding a shoulder to lean on dependable and strong
A man of humility still humble inside 
Comforter in the times of need protector when in need of embrace 
hands spread over the truth of man with wisdom of the world 
 
pure in the eyes of a virtuous women 
pleasing to the mind tempting to the touch 
a man of strong faith  and forgiveness
one who has taken my heart my soul 
a real man

Anguishing Love

This is torture,
Everytime he looks into my eyes my heart receives another puncture,
And needs yet another suture,
What an anguishly sweet mixture,
For my heart, the completely broken fixture.

He spoke to me,
And my speech seized,
My heart rapidly increased speed,
And my breathing completely ceased,
And with one wink my soul released.

He smiled at me and my joy exploded,
My legs folded,
And my strength imploded,
His smile withered and scalded,
It screamed "Watch out this love machine is loaded."

He touched me and set my body and soul aquiver,
He is such a pleasure giver,
He burst into my heart and soul through nothing more than a sliver,
He snuck up from behind and engulfed me in shivers,
And he gave me an explosive fever.

He gave me his beautiful heart,
And that was the start,
I knew from then on we would never part,
He proved he was unequivically smart,
Because at that moment I forever gave him my heart.

He told me he loved me and stole my breath away,
He stole away the November's gray,
And brought to me the warmest day in May,
He promised he would stay,
 And from now own he will be my hero, my lover, and my soul mate until my dying day.

The Two States of Love

The Two States of Love.
 
Yes, hidden is the partial tale,
from a heart that awakens not,
may love enthrall uprooted plants,
but, not a man that love forgot.
As we all are born -a yesterday,
again will be, when today shall tread,
and so carry on with this delay,
until a lover's sweet words be said.
 
And morbid if my heart does turn,
a place with spiral toxic cold,
where tears do crowed the rivulets,
would the wet air my sighing hold;
So if sorrow such on my behalf,
does tear apart, a haunted chest,
Still, her name would be my epitaph,
And her love the ever staying guest.

Dance

We lay together in this moment 
Time stands still around us and only we move 
I hear you breathing in my ear as your hands slide down my chest 
We make God weep at the dance we perform 
And you cry his name in the bliss you desire 
Am I doing this right for you?
Do you like the way I make you move in my arms?
We are hardly half done as we make our own music play the tone I know you love
 Now you lead and I follow in this love dance
Breathing heavy we work in love make you moan 
Am I doing this right for you my love?
I know I am from the weeping of joy from all the desire you have 
We spin round so you can dance above me 
This dance has barley begun 
The dance was slow 
Our hands roaming looking for the right place to hold 
I sigh in relief as we hold each just right 
Let  us speed it up 
The climax is come in this dance 
The final part is close can you feel it approaching?
Heavy breathing stop momentarily just as the world starts around us again
Looking into the your eyes I know this was right
The dance we have started 
Has come to an end for know.

Tell Me You Love Me

Tell Me You Love Me Do I really need to tell you Those three little words you long to hear? Do my actions not suffice Is our relationship's longevity Not enough to satisfy you? Good times and bad, we've survived Do I really need to tell you. Do I really need to tell you That our love is like the ocean? Deep, mysterious and eternal We're bonded together, you and me Like decades worth of barnacles Welded to undersea structures Do I really need to tell you? Do I really need to tell you Our love manifests through our children? By the way they raise their own To love and respect themselves And others, no matter who they are By the love we receive in return Do I really need to tell you? Do I really need to tell you After all, we are still together? We trust in each other If you are in trouble, I'll be there If you are hurt, I am too We are soul mates, you and me Do I really need to tell you?

ROAD ONE HUNDRED AND TEN

today i saw A white car with big antennas in the back
Out stepped a man in a uniform of blue and black
He knew my name as if I have seen him before
My heart had sank  to the floor
He said my name is officer green
I was the first  to arrive on the scene
My hands were shaken,my legs wouldn’t stand
I had to sit down clinch to my wedding band
I closed my eyes and hoped for the best
My heart felt like it was going to pound right through my chest
Officer green said I’m so deeply sorry to meet you like this
He said its not easy for me to say as he clinched his wrist
You could see him swallow then take a deep breath of air
Officer said my intentions today was not to bring anyone despair.
I finally asked him if he would just say what he needed to say
my nerves are shot and with my emotions you cant play
Officer said there was a wreck and I did what I could
But he didn’t make it and I deeply hopped he would
I looked at officer green;my eyes filled with a tear
Told him my world is flipped ,my husband is no longer here
No more late movies or holding each other in the dark
no more afternoon picnics after a stroll in the park
I told him our anniversary was just around the corner you see
Its just not fair  his life and mine have been taken from me
Officer said sorry is there anything you would like me to do
I was so upset I screamed  BRING MY HUSBAND BACK WOULD YOU
down on my knees crying you must have it wrong
 the last thing he said is I love you honey I wont be gone for long
Reality sank in but it took quite a while
My husband is gone its true there’s no more denial 
Officer green gave me his card said don’t hesitate to call if a need arise
 my heart goes out to you and I will listen to all your cries
Officer said I am not suppose to hug you but going to instead
You are my mom I love you  hope you don’t blame me cause dad is dead
I made sure I was the officer to tell you so it might maybe give a little ease
Mom even though I am an officer tell me it is ok to cry please
Mom I wish my visit was just to sit and talk
It is the hardest thing ever harder than learning to walk
Mom I know I am an officer and suppose to stay  tough
dad died in my arms mom ,that hurts  my days ahead rough
My shift is over mom I will be here and stay by your side
Mom I know dad is in heaven waiting to see his son and lovely bride
Now as you drive along road one hundred and ten
You will see a fathers and husbands cross standing just around the bin

Aborted Babies


Aborted Babies…

Innocent life is being murdered each day.
While our courts say that it’s legal and “o.k.”

Women getting pregnant and maybe don’t understand.
The tragedy that’s happening all over this land!

Is this really something that many people have willed?
To have the unborn to be 
“torn apart and killed?”

Many are told abortion is the “best thing to do.”
But not knowing who else to turn to.

Government pretends to have an answer for this.
But it’s just turning into one huge mess!

Read the Bible and you will come to know.
The God who created you… 
Loves you so!

Jesus knew you in the womb!  
Your hair color and name!
He saw your body when out of your
 mother you came!

He saw your little heart the first time it beat!
And saw your mother the first time
 she tickled your feet!

There is never one unwanted person on God’s list!
You are precious to him…  
And are never missed!

He knows each life and every heart that’s beating!
And brings purpose, love and
 a TRUE meaning!

Watch The Horizon

That orange-pink sky
takes my breath away.
So pure and lovely
it spreads across the horizon.

But as the sky grows darker and darker
The pink fades to purple 
The orange to red
The light blue to a colder blue
Night is coming.

Before i knew it
The sky was glimmering in stars
The full moon shining brightly over head
The wind picked up a bit
And i shivered

The night was cold 
And the dark made it colder.
As an action to stay warm 
I pulled up my collar 
But it didn't work.

I quickly made my way home
Being sure no one saw
For they didn't know i was out.
For they didn't know i was waiting for my miracle.

I wake up early the next morning
And head outside.
The birds were starting to wake up
The sky was turning that soft pink color
Of sunrise. 

I quickened my pace 
to make it on time.
And just as it began i made it to the stop

The sunrise was beautiful
and it took away my breath.
I smiled to myself and thought my wish.
I had a feeling,
Something good will happen.
All i had to do was watch the sun set.

With hope in my heart 
And joy filling my body
I jogged home.

The day was passing 
and the sunset was coming
I needed to get out
Right Now!
I excused myself and quickly went outside

I ran to the stop.
Panting and tired i made it a little late
The sky was an amazing orange/purple color
I smiled despite the day i had. 

Once again the sunset was ending
But today it was different
Today a figure walked toward me
And deep in my heart i knew it was you.

5 years, 8 months, 12 weeks
25 days, 24 hours, 30 minutes 
was all it took

To see you walking back to me from war
ALIVE.
And all i did 
was Watch the Horizon


Dedicated to all those families who have a loved one in the military. We wish for their safe return. God Bless them all!

Battle in my Heat

Battle in my Heart 

Heart of mine; what is the reason for living?
When your will to live is dying?
All the days and nights; was each tear really worth crying?
I Battle in my heart; for the one I love...
Fighting reasonings to keep us as "one?".
The unity of our vows; echo forever in my heart.
Wishing and longing, my heart aches being apart.
I married you because I love you...now and forever.
Uniting our love..will always be my endeavor.
The windows of my soul; sprang tears, confused feelings are taking its toll.
Hold me..find me..fullfil once again, my desolete soul.

A Place Called Home

I will have that moment one day
With her in my arms sitting around her 
And enjoying the nature charms
Thre too shall be a place. A place called home
A home built by 2 people for each other 
A home that complete us
A place made by Suki for Bella
A place made a paradise by Bella for Suki
That is a place that I would like to call home
A home is where the heart is
My heart lies In Bella 
Each and aevery single heart beat
Each and evry single breath I ever take
Everything I ever do is all for you
My Bella 
A time shall come when we been on the stage where we can say that we finally made it
To a place
A place which we could call home.
Just me and you on a journey a special journey
A non stop journey until we reach home
With all the love I posses
Yours till death

Boundaries

My love for you
is a countless drops of moist rain
perhaps that is the reason
I wish
It keeps raining
all day and night
perhaps that is why
I wish
monsoon be the season
all year long.
My love for you
s boundless part of my life
perhaps that is the reason
I wish
you to be my soul
thus will exist
life after life
and beyond.

My love for you
is soundless sea of devotion
perhaps that is the reason
I wish
to be drawn deeper and deeper
quietly within you.

Callous eyes

Callous 

Every tiny things matter in a young world, 
and then with callous eyes, he is used to pick
days and nights as they pass him, as they pass beyond.

Sometimes he panics, fears that she’ll go away 
and he won’t feel any ache, just be watching her
moving away, erasing; looking at the place
where she has been seen last; with covert anger.

A tiny butterfly flies, in and out, in and… 
the patch of rain raises smells, smells of musty dusk.
The callous eyes follow the hands clutching heart 
where past is blending in pains and agonies.

I can not

I can not share my heart with you
Im in love with another man
and he's nothin like you
I know we had hopes, and dreams,
making memories,
but it had to come to an end
my love for you is just a friend
Im in love with my man

I apologise
for you fallin for me
I apologise
when we made love that early spring
I couldnt go on like this
you put my love to a test
my love for you is just a friend
and this affair had to end

I can not

Oh no...

I can not share my heart with you
Im in love with another man

I know we had hopes, and dreams,
making memories,
but it had to come to an end
my love for you is just a friend
Im in love with my man

he gives me positive words
he gives me the time
that I need
he makes my heart skip a beat
I let his love set me free

he is the best I ever had
he lift me up when I am sad
he mean so much to me
and you a nice friend indeed

"but"....

I can not share my heart with you
Im in love with another man
and he's nothin like you
I know we had hopes, and dreams,
making memories,
but it had to come to an end
my love for you is just a friend
Im in love with my man

the gates are closing
the sky is raining
I know ya heart is breaking
you gotta understand
I love my man

"oh"

Unconditional

~Unconditional~

I have never been one
To give my heart away freely
Always afraid of getting it broke
Taking my time 
Trying to get it right
Yet I still get hurt
When I give my heart away

Unconditional

When I give someone my trust
My friendship
My hand
My heart
There are never any strings attached
It is 

Unconditional

So to get it broken again
Will come as no surprise
Heading to a heartache
I do believe I am
The silence, the tension when I am around
I will always love him
I just hope that 
His love is

Unconditional

He claims a headache
Yet he will not even look me in the eyes
My heart wants to believe him
Yet my gut tells me not to
I keep hoping I am wrong
I keep hoping 
It is a simple misunderstanding
Yet I still get the feeling it is more
As my love grows stronger
I feel like his may be dwindling
Like two strangers sharing a home
Wishing he would tell me what is on his mind
Lord knows I have asked him several times
I hope he does not take too much time
 However my love for him will always be 

Unconditional

The more time that passes
Makes my heart ache even more
While I can’t force him to talk to me
I know all I have to rely on is my hope
My love for him
Our promise to each other
And a prayer
That he does not hurt me
Even then my love will always be

Unconditional

I have

I have gotten used to
coming home to be alone
I have gotten used to 
not questioning where you go
and I have gotten used to 
a short call to say hello
but I have not gotten used to 
the way my heart feels ohh so low

I have leaned to be okay 
with talking only briefly
our schedules don't match up at all
but someday you will see me
I have learned you never come
when you say you will
and I have learned not to expect 
the actions said by you

I would like to be taken out
just once in a blue moon
I don't ask for much you see
just to be with you
I would like to lay one night 
knowing you won't have to leave 
I would like to wake up to 
you sleeping next to me.

But no, you can't
not right now
maybe in a year
should I wait when my heart breaks?
every day I feel the tears
I am lonely and in love
with someone who loves me
or so I think, 
but where oh where is he?

Cowboy

So strong and self assured
He rides alone always wanting more
Never satisfied with what's between those fences
His spirit will wake up your wildest senses

By the cross and thorns that is emblazoned on his arm
His substance runs deeper than his cowboy charm
A tame Christian man with a spirit wild
A man of God, he is your child

His reckless nature will never subside
Yet humble he still has his foolish pride
His heart is bigger than the tallest mountain high
And you feel weak when you look into his eyes

His hands so rough yet so soft to touch
For him no ride is ever too much
He welcomes the mystery that comes in the night
A lover at heart born ready to fight

The complexity of this cowboy man
Every woman dreams with him she would stand
Alone, looking at the midnight moon
In her dreams, she whispers...sometime soon

Loves Burden

Loves Burden

So strong of body, muscle defying steel
so Stoic of nature, head defying, what the heart might feel

So focused, the path, so well defined
so measured the steps, the ladders he's climbed

She smiled at him, the sun falling on ice
she held him in her arms, a heart skipped twice, thrice

She spoke to him, of mice and men
she changed the course, the best laid plans, of women

What could have been, maybe, maybe still can
what options remain, emprisoned in her plan

He often ponders, what might have been
he struggles with what if's, opportunities unseen

He sinks to lows, never thought of when
he was strong of will, he never needed to pretend

How did a life, go so far astray
how can the cost come due, each and every day

How far off course, how far from home
how can this love burden, one who is so alone.

(Stoic)

A Man

Is he crazy,
Is he lazy?
Is he charming,
Is his behavior sometimes alarming?
Is his house clean,
Is his tongue sharp and keen?
Just remember he is only a man,
And you must love him the best that you can.
Is he intelligent,
Does he sometimes act like an adolescent?
Does his skin sparkle and shine,
Or is he covered in dirt and grime?
Is he a thief,
Does he often cause you grief?
Has he ever committed a crime,
Or stole a kiss and not ever given you a dime?
Just remember he is only a man and nothing more,
And you must love what you hate sometimes, even if he is rotten to the core.
Does he love you,
Like no other can do?
Does his mind change as quickly as the wind,
When someone questions his loyalty is he quick to defend?
Does his every touch leave you wanting more,
Can he twirl you 'round the ole dance floor?
Does his every kiss make you unable to speak, 
Does his every whisper make it unable to breathe?
Just remember he is a man and that is all he can be,
Like a caged bird you must set his heart and soul free.
Did he give you his heart,
Have you the courage to not tear it apart?
Did he ask for your heart in return,
When he asked did your desire burn?
Did he ask you to be his wife,
Will you love him for the rest of his life?
Always remember he is only a man trying to love you the best that he can,
And, I , for one will always love and cherish my man.
For I love him the best that I can,
This boy, that under my tutaledge has become my TRUE MAN!

With Christ YOU CAN Overcome

With Christ…   You Can Overcome!



One of the things I don’t understand, Is the wickedness throughout this land. I’ve often thought and have pondered. How can this evil continue much longer? It’s amazing what man will do to each other. How people treat their sisters and brothers! The Bible says that the heart is wicked above all things. We can testify to the destruction an evil heart brings! In all of this wickedness, sin and confusion… There is an answer! There is a solution! We’ll find eternal hope and a peace within… As we come to Christ and confess our sin! Why not allow Christ to make you complete? Lay your every burden and worry at his feet! He’ll restore your life and wipe away your tears. His perfect love will cast out your fears! He’ll restore to you, what the enemy has taken. With him by your side… You’ll not be forsaken! Your heart will be strengthened and renewed! His words of life are like “heavenly food.” By the blood of the lamb… You can overcome! Christ has the victory! The battle’s been won! By Jim Pemberton

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.

Lucky Day

                               Until there was you, I never knew love so true. 
                             From the moment we met, my heart was a wreck.
                                 It skipped beats and cried your name.
           I hid my feelings for four years from you, until I knew if you loved me to.
                                   We offically got together on a unlucky day,
                                        that day they call Friday the 13th.
                                 On this unlucky day, it was my lucky day.
                                For the first time in my life, time stood still!
           I remember that fateful night like it was yesterday, 
       the angels was singing and my heart stopped beating.  
The first time we shared a kiss, my knees got weak. 
The first time you held me I felt a passion so deep.
It has been almost 2 years from the first time you kissed me.
Since that lucky day we have gotten married.
Our wedding day was just as magical as the first time we met. 
After hiding my love for so long, I'm glad that you held on.
You felt the same for me but, we was both to shy and meek. 
Now we are together forever with a love that will endever.
Our love grows stronger every moment, every minute, every hour, every day. 
The love I have for you will never ever fade away!!

One Did Fall

Can a heart become what a story tells?
Where happiness thrives and a daydream dwells
Of course the passion grows on sight
Excitement by day, warmth by night

Filling the hole of empty bliss
Can be made by a simple ‘time-for-work’ kiss
Arching smiles can be noticed by all
Right into Cupid’s love, one did fall

By God, the thought runs through one’s head
Never wanting this love to be found dead
Glorious times one can hardly endure
The disbelief, but alas, compassion ensured

The Great Depression of solitariness now done
That grey time of guilt and remorse, overrun
No words to explain it, what more is there to say?
Do not ever ask for this to all go away!

Floating just like a bird, singing by a calm river
This heart has never been cherished, but is always a giver
Rest well tonight, for another day is pending
And that smile, that feeling, will be never-ending

Pride and prejudice

Huddled inside his feathery frame, basking in his mellowing warmth, behind the horizon the sun rose and dawn came, and the dove awoke with fright and alarm. She had to fly for none must know, that her heart's with the raven. And she flew leaving her heart behind, only to wear a mask among her own kind. She played along as they tweeted with voices loud, their diction coated with malice and disdain.. She could do nothing but to their every word bow, while her tender heart bled and pained. Tangled in their rusted chain, she waited till the first star spawned. Bidding goodbye with a smile that she feigned, she wound the clock to the time before morn. As the sun crept to the other side, the dove lost herself in his love so wide. With their body and soul now entwined, they made love, when everything was so beautiful and fine.

VIEW OF FLUSHING MEADOW PARK

A huge hemisphere,
a lake two and half miles long,
many shady trees,
cars on Grand Central Parkway...
happy kids on swings and slides.


It's very quite here,
people walking and chatting
in the greenest park,
they're safe even after dark...
it's the perfect haven! 


Nighttime seems daytime
when lights shine on all faces
watching a play, or
listening to pop or rock...
what a view from my window!

A Man, After His Own Heart …
That’s What The Almighty God Said
A Man, After His Own Heart
That Scripture, I’ve Understandingly, Read …

God Chose David … 
Not Just For His Beautiful Eyes
Or His Bright, Ruddy-Smiles
Nor His Age, or Form, Nor Size …

but, God Chose David
because His Ways, Were Godly-Sure
and His Hope, Was Godly-Pure
and in His Heart, Was Godly-Fear…

and There Ain’t Nothing Here, More Handsome
Than A Man, With A Godly-Heart
They, Can’t Even Capture That Winsome
Sight, in any, Man-Made Works-of-Art

So, All You Guys Out There…
 Good-Looking In Your Masculinity 
Remember… A ‘Good’ Woman, Will Care
and Want You For: ‘ Your Pact-With-Divinity’

and She Will Be Plum-Pleased and Proud on Her Part
to Call That Man Her Own
‘Cause With A Man Akin to God’s Own Heart
She Knows, She Can’t Go Wrong …


         ( Wow ! …. A Man After His Own Heart … )
Keep Moving Forward … Becoming  Sons of God – Wow !

The cheating sin

She comes home to a silent room
Waiting for the greeting that she yearned to hear each day
Instead the noise that met her ear
Was of the most surprise to her
It was moaning and a groaning
And something she has never heard
She walked around to see what it was
In her mind she already knew
There he was and there she was
staring in each others eyes
Caught in the mist of the action
That just ruined both of their lives
She ran out so fast but didn't know where to go 
But her mind was way ahead
She put the car in reverse and skidded down the street
Before he ever could reach the door
She never talked to him again
But her heart wanted to each day
He cheated and she couldn't believe it
That was the end of their days
Years went by and she is trying to forget
But the pain keeps seeping back in
So uncontrollable, so unfathomable
She just wanted to the pain to end
Slowly and surely she drank away every hurt in her body
Till the night she drove herself off that cliff
Into the water that remained below
She did it  because her heart couldn't be mended 
Nor fixed of all the pain
He will never get to see her face
But will always remember her pain

Still can't let go

It was clear from the beginning, I 
was born to love no other.
It was clear to my heart that it found 
it's proper owner.
Many things got fuzzy, everything 
was catastrophic, but one thing 
never changed.
I can't forget my love for you, I can't 
forget your touch.
I can't forget your voice, I can't forget 
your sight.
I can't ignore how my body cries for 
you, and most certainly not the pain 
my heart feels. 
I don't like being with out you, I don't 
like the hostility in my heart of 
disgracing your image and wanting it 
more than ever. I can't control the 
battle that losing you puts me 
through, a battle against myself, an 
infinite realm in which I have no 
better outcome than perishing after 
you. I hopelessly wait for my time, I 
long for the day to reunite with you. I 
planned a whole lifetime together, 
my mind can't process the idea of 
our life not allowing the opportunity. 
I want you, I need you, time can't 
heal me, its impossible. I love you, I'll 
cry it forever. I scream to the world, 
past the universe past the point of 
my capable vocal chords. I'd fight 
with anyone who stood between us, 
nothing can take me from you. You 
have my thoughts, my heart, my soul 
and my body. My first real lover, the 
first to gain my approval, the first to 
make me scream "Yes!!" due to the 
hand you took. I shed my tears for 
you, and they won't stop coming. I 
gave you everything, and the only 
thing I'll be able to do is live my life 
for you. I'm confused though, how 
can I live this life when I don't want it, 
I loathe the day I couldn't live my life 
with you, I became accustomed to 
you, to our routine. They say young 
love is stupid, idiotic, unfathomable, 
but it was the most real, most 
wanted most confusing and pleasing 
thing I've gone through. How can 
something hurt and cause so much 
pleasure. There's a reason you place 
your pride aside for your love.. And 
that's the sole reason

Harmony

Harmony is a song
It is played oh so perfectly when the notes go together
And everyone is singing the same tune

Harmony is two book ends that fit perfectly together
Holding all of the contents in  between

Harmony is the sky when the summer moon is lit
And the shooting stars are going in a million different directions

Harmony is my heart for you
When the world has gone in the opposite direction

Harmony is a watch that keeps perfect timing
Each and every piece is working in unison

Harmony is a peanut and butter sandwich
On any kind of bread being held by you

And lastly,
Harmony is the way my heart melts
When we go to sleep at night and there is no strife between us

Just me
And you
And the dreams of our futures
Forever cherished!

A Magic Rose

I stare at a rose on a vine
It is red as wine,
Looks so peacefully, and just sits there like it stares back
I touch the rose
It sends a magic signal to inside my whole body
The rose pulls my body into a deep trance
Somehow I know I need to pull my hand back
The trance that I'm in is stronger than my power
Then, I see these two images like people
A man, and a woman
Laughing, and talking 
Even though I can't see a clear vision of who they are
The woman sound like me
The man sounds like my husband
I close my eyes and try to get a better vision
Then, open them
I see my husband and I
But how could this be?
My husband is dead!
A voice echoes through me and the trance
I can't make the voice out to understand what it is trying to say to me
I train my mind to get a better hearing of the voice
Every minute is coming clearer
Finally I heard and understood
This is a re-run of my husband and I on our first date
Finally I realized what was happening
The rose is a magic rose
People who touches this rose, send them back through time
It was never in my mind
That has my husband gave me a sign?
Could it  be explained?
Or was it maybe the rose bring back good memories and replace them from bad 
ones?
Who knows? 
It's a mystery.
I finally came out of the trance
I was feeling fine now
better than I was before
I will always remember that rose on vine,
Whenever I need comfort, I can come to that magic rose!

For You

  As I lay my self down to sleep I give to you my soul to keep
 For u I would take a stand, to keep our love strong I'll do anything I can
Everytime I feel your touch which i dont feel enough, Its like Im begging 
for your love! Its like im invisable to you why cant i be what you need!
The pain and suffering that I have allways known tends to stay with me
as I grow,My nightmares has lengerd threw all these years I have shed
way to many tears! When i meat you my heart was like coal , I'V never
been showed love as you no , But yet you show nothing now,
In the bagning a light shined on me and It was you , Then I was no 
longer haunted by what men put me through! Now that I have meat you 
This monster you have slain And every day being with you keeps me saine 
Love deciet dishunesty and pain cover my soul like the distant rain 
 wanting your love  me pushes me insaine  Cant you see your
all I have For you my love is pure and true ,you dont even have a clue 
its hard for me when your not near losing you is my biggest fear.
U and Elissa are my family ! Something Iv never had And I would 
go to the end of the earth to get it back I need for us to be togeather tell 
the end ! But do u? For u I would do anything I can!
I say I love you because I do in my heart mind and soul And you know  its true For 
you Id gladly
give my life in hope that one day ill be your wife

Here We Go

Here we go once again
Argueing
On both we put strain 
Outside there's rain
Inside there's pain
Baby I'm sorry, you say
Yeah whatever you reply
As I look out at the bay 
Still as if deaden by the night
Silence is a key
A key signaling the end of a fight
Within a simple second
From wrong to right
As you come back into sight
Taking this love to a different height
Here we go making up
As a tense shiver bolts through my body
As we begin to kiss, touch, and rub
Slowing and so carelessly finding our way to the tub
Clothes fall off as if we were melting chocolate
You begin to tenderly caress as if know I'll let
It's not like you don't know I'm wet
A tear of joy falls
When your member and mine met
As a steady rhytmn is set
I'm able to look you in the eyes
The house, the walls, the animals of the darkness
Listen to my moans and eager cries
Sweet,sweet baby here we go

A Gravitational Pull

Stone upon the water front/
Next to the cashmere pillow,
The pier near the gallow shore/
A man began to speak,

Within this land there shall be no way out accept I tax,
This gravitational pull may bring some down,
Yet if you stay and listen very carefully/
You will live through this time and be very happy !

Many of you have become lazy in the manner of laws,
A decree will be summoned to let us know/
The waiting may be hard to comprehend,
Yet within time you can grow to depend/

The fat of the land,
Let this man take you by the hand/
There can be no further excuses or escape,
The way will depend upon the hearer's !

Achilles Abides

Watching mundane seconds tick away
Linked together they form passing years
This flimsy chain around my neck does not betray
Nor can my stinging eyes squeeze back the tears

Dreams begin to float out of my reach
Tormented by what makes me so distressed
Losing many of my hopes I feel besieged
Yet still reflecting on the way my life is blessed

The silence puzzles me and pierces with its thunder
The foundation bucks the shaking of its core
What God has joined together no man puts asunder
The waves are beating hard upon our shores

Weary eyes look towards damp clouds and search for light
Desperate to feel some warmth deep within my bones
Will its brilliant glow supplant the bluish night
Giving a sneak peek into the great unknown

Chasing those rainbows now seems like wasted time
The pot of gold was a seductive ruse of lead
Perhaps we were just lonely partners in crime
Caught up in reveries we thought surely lied ahead

Waiting for the stars to fall into my hands
To turn this to profound from the surreal
Nobody but the stars can understand
That I’ll fall victim to my poor Achilles heel

My Only Love

My only love, what can I say;
I never want you to go away.

I hope my heart is your only tenant;
That fills your soul, please listen a minute.

It took so long for me to find your love;
That I can't live without, like wings on a dove.

You make my heart fly so sky high;
It stills flutters when you walk by.

I didn't believe a love could be;
That you could love just only me.

Sometimes I watch you late at night;
As if you will vanish, right out of sight.

But every morning when I awake;
I see your smiling face, for God did not take.

Wendell, I love you with all of my soul;
Please never leave, cause my heart would be cold

Once Upon a nightmare

As I close my eyes I linger slowly to sleep.
As I fall into this world of dreams.
I see you face once again.
There you are once more in my arms as we dance.
Your lips press softly upon mine as the passion flares.
Once more our song plays in the background.
Once more I sweep you off your feet.
So light as we dance upon the floor.
Our eyes meet the song comes to an end.
I place a rose in long beautiful hair.
Your smile is like a gift that warms my smile as it spreads upon your face.
Your eyes change color from the glare of the moon as they shine.
To hear your heart as it sings in a loud song as I melt.
Once more a kiss upon your lips before I awake.
But to open my eyes an realize its too late. 
Waking up in disapointment to see you aren't by my side.
To only cry and wish I still had you here.

Cyber Cheater

Cyber Cheater 

You are my cheating heart.
Passing me by from the start.

I feel desolate and broken in two.
Scarred for life, my heart hangs askew…

What have I done for you to leave?
I thought you loved me I wanted to believe..

I drift into hopelessness, feeling empty inside.
I take on my life in a dismal stride…

Longing, seeking; where do I stand?
Wondering and walking in the mind’s wasteland.

Do you still want me or that someone other?
The one that steals love, that one the shyster?

My heart was owned once upon a history..
Completely, absolute, in sublime stupidity.

You & Me (Problems)

You said you'll never hurt me
You promise you'll be there for me
You showed me all the nice things 
You told me that one day I'll be wearing your promise ring
You said that you loved me, that every time I call you'll answer
You broke my heart and did you care
I didn't even think if you did or didn't
Because of you my heart floats in the air
I treated you right, let you stay at my home when I had to go to school the next day
Even through late nights
I should've let you go when we where going threw our fuses and fights
But instead I heard that what relationship was, true
Thats not an relationship; you cheated and you lied 
I told you from me there should be nothing to hide
I just wanted you to be real, but you couldn't even do that
But that goes with half of these lieing,cheating dudes
To us girls thats known as a fact 
Some of us (the truth and being real) is some we lack
I can't believe you did this to me 
I really didn't think you where going to change 
You left me with know choice now they call me

Spinning on Your Broken Face

I wrote this when my husband was in boot camp. And I will write many many more when he
deploys... 



Oh great world you widely turn with sun and moon to make your entrance face.
But hath the sun be known to bring you smiling? The night, to brim your cheeks and
wrinkled face?
You groan in cognition with blaring traffic, silent steeples, the mountain’s face.
And though the sun shines brightly, can the core of the heart beat color to thine face?
For what then, when shaken form the quakes of loss? Shall rivers flow parallel with
sorrow’s face?
What then? Explain the quakes and quivers of salty sea tears, while grasses wither, burns
the prairie’s face.
If thou cant be willing to acknowledge the corrosion of thine face,
oh great world widely turning in space,
acknowledge why I miss the stars
And wonder where my tide went.
Tell me where the boat shall lead the tired soul.
For his feet be sore in boots of war.
For under my nails bares the sands of many lands that I have traveled in my mind in sweet
pursuit…
To catch the vapor if his scent
Be reminded this heaven sent.
Tell me so far the beaches see, as I too come to greet the sea
And bask in sun and salt and rain
To join in your broken heart of pain.
Tell me how thou heart beat still
Spinning on your broken face.

I Was Alone

                                              I was alone
                                           Lost in this world
                            Trying to find just a glimmer of light
                              I was blinded by misery’s darkness,
                                  Drenched by shame and fright
 
                                                     I was alone
                                               Seeking shelter

                                      That one day I might find.
                                       A place for my heart to call home, 
                                    Somewhere that was truly mine

                                                 I was alone
                                          Seeking nourishment,
                                 Longing to feed my hungry soul
                                     On a quest for completion, 
                                  To make my flesh feel whole

                                               I was alone 
                                           seeking refuge
                                         A place of tranquility 
                                    then I met my heart’s joy
                                     The missing part of me

                             He took me and clothed me 
                                    in his finest garments
                                          silks, satins
                            And his robe of the pure white
                         He gave me dominion over his heart
                                    And accepted as his wife.

                                              I was alone
                                              And seeking
                            But never know that I was searching
                                     Until I met this man
                       Who showed me that I was worthy to be loved
                              And held my heart in his hands.

                                                    Now, 
                                   I am no longer searching
                              For that something that is true
                           I have found all that I’ve sought after
                                     And I found it in you.

Dear Mom And Dad

Are you the same mom and dad 
I used to know?
Since I left the house… 
many years ago? 

Both who carefully taught 
me the Christian ways.
Don’t seem to care 
what the Bible says. 

You were there to give correction
with a belt in hand.
But now are doing things…
 I don’t understand. 

What happened to the father’s love 
I once seen in your eyes?
You’ve somehow twisted God's 
truth into corruptible lies. 

You’ve broken my heart 
dear mom and dad.
I’m praying for you… 
but my heart grows sad. 

Please… Just this once…
 Listen to me!
I want the Godly parents 
you used to be! 

Please make me proud of the
parents I once knew.
And know that I really love
and appreciate you.
 
You’re my mom and dad… 
You’re the world to me.
And you’re special to God...
It’s plain to see! 

May your days be blessed and 
God’s presence fill your soul.
I will always love you no matter
where you may go. 

Thanks mom and dad for reading
this “special letter.”
With God on board… 
Things will get better!

Hello my darling, how do you do?
I have a question pertaining to you.
Why does your heart seems to be true
But your actions tend to make me feel blue?
I think we need to talk all this through
But I’ll do the talking instead of you.
When you stay out late, what is it you do?
The things that I’ve heard, I hope there not true!
Don’t say anything until I am through.
I’m tired of feeling this feeling so blue
So I figured out what I’m going to do.
For now on I’m going to go out with you.
I’ll see for myself if all of its true
And I swear if it is you'll be more than blue.
Now you may talk because I am through.

Hello my darling, how do you do?
I have a question that best fits to you.
You know that my heart has always been true
So there is no reason that you should feel blue.
And yes I agree we should talk this through
But now I’m talking instead of you.
What is it that you think that I do?
How can you think what you've heard can be true?
You had your turn so wait tell I’m through.
I’m sorry that you're feeling so blue.
If that’s what it is that you want to do
That’s fine; I’d love to go out with you.
The gossip and rumors you'll see are not true. 
Why would you believe them and make yourself blue?
This is my question so please think it through.

Masked Man

I remember that night so long 
ago yet it feels as if tonight. 
You strolled into the room 
music was playing. 

A boy not all man yet and 
you were in no hurry had 
no worry was just out 
for the evening. 

You stole away with 
my heart that night under 
the warm July skies 
with that provocative smile. 

We walked awhile for a mile or 
so and learned all the things 
that made each of us tick. 

You were laid back and 
I was so mellow. 
We came and went well 
together back then. 

You were wild and untamed 
I was gentle and bridled 
in your cowboy spell. 

I fell totally for you that 
night masked man. 
But you were wild and 
so untamed like a 
bronco. 

You wanted to roam 
I wanted a home for 
two. 

July nights greet me 
now with your provocative 
smile in the warm breezes 
I shiver and quiver so 
longing still for you 
masked man. 

I watch the direction 
you rode out into 
that night. 
My heart rides out 
every now and then 
to see if you... 
remember too. 


This Saturday December 15th I am making memories on my life big time My birthday and now
My wedding day. No Name change the masked man came home to stay {Micheal}  sorry for all
the time away these past few weeks been wedding planning. With Christmas and Holiday tasks
and now the wedding  it takes most of my time.  Will catch up commenting all your
beautiful works.

Childbirth

You have consummated the dream
upon its fertile mind            have given birth
your Sons are to be Kings for ruling in the earth
like life I wish that we would never part
our connection like the beating of one heart
 
because I have believed your heart was true
therefore did I give mine               permanently to you
You have shown me      a love of Sons of Men
not of his clothing         but what he hides within
you didst reveal this                   by your own right hand
did speak soft words until     we could understand
You saw not my skin                or what one outside see
you gazed within             looked upon the real me
 
Enfolded in your arms just like a child
your forgiveness and tender mercies mild
where you hold us until each of us can hear
understand completely the Words spoken in our ear
 
Love should have been the first thing
you met when you were born
the warm embrace which followed
when from wombs comfort torn
 
Cradle me my Beloved in your arms
hold at a distance all of my alarms
I want to walk with you 
until there's endless days
seek the crown of creation
and understanding of his ways
pleasant are the days I spend with you
my Lord , just master of his house
to you my one only
is my heart espoused
Like a mighty warrior you have mounted up
the valor of your deeds have filled my every cup
without you near my heart is empty still
but cries with its distress
until with you my life instill
 
As  bird you gathered us beneath your wings
your endearment descends like mountains streams
there within the wilderness were we broken
until we received knowledge of the promise spoken
 
Songs of the Kings

The Truth

Whats this love for? Is it worth it this time?
Are you gonna break my heart? 
Are you truly gonna be mine? 
Guys will say anything behind those jail walls , but 
the sad thing is I wouldn't believe you even if you 
weren't in jail at all.
You've done some horrible things Bobby. 
You truly broke my heart.
When I lost you my whole damn world feel apart.
I'm not saying that to make you feel bad.
I'm saying that cause when I lost my whole world got sad.
I'm not perfect never have been but , I truly loved you 
and still remained your friend.
Now 7 years later the same words you once said.
I love you Megan , I need you so bad.
The sound of your voice is still the same and hidden in your words are lies.
Things are different this time. I'm not the same girl.
If you try to play games with me I promise I will get the highest score.
I won't fall for it this time I'm mean it I do.
I won't let another guy put me threw what you put me threw , not even you.
If you love me we can hold each other threw all this bad weather.
We can get threw it together , but if you hurt me its gonna be bad. 
Not trying to sound mean but my pride is all that I have. 
I promise to love you & be there till the end , and if *****gets to 
deep I promise to remain your friend. 
I hope you do the same , but I hope even more you mean what your saying.
Just be honest Bobby thats all I ask. If you do that I willing to let go of the past.
I wont bring it up no more , if you can show me there's a reason I fell in love with you.
I want to know there is love behind all this pain we've been threw.
If you can do that then the sun will truly shine , and the gas is greener on the other side.
Most of I will be your everything and you'll be mine.
I'll love and cherish you and when you do time I'll do time.
Like Bonnie & Clyde if you show me you love me , I'll ride or die. 
To the end of time , you could be the only man that's on my mind.
That's precious. Getting me to say some *****like that is a blessing.
I hope you learned your lesson. Your 34 I hope your ready to man up , and be all 
that you can be and more. You owe to it yourself but even more to your kids.
You need to show them their dad's not as bad as everyone says he is. 
I know together we can make it. If I didn't it would be heartbreak that I'm risking
taking. 
So please hear my words their is more to life than trying to put yourself in the dirt.
Stand up and realize what your worth I want you to love yourself and remember I 
loved you first.

Our Union

Our Union
	
My eyelashes bat 
After meeting your gaze
From across a 
Crowded subway haze.
 
My pupils dilate when they
Look back at you over dinner
Where we drank wine and ate.
 
My feet dance with glee as we
Fall hopelessly in love 
In the midst of summer heat.
 
My heart splits apart 
To become your wife
And your forever sweetheart.
 
My legs spread 
Open to bare new life
And see your cheeks rosen.
 
My arms push 
You away at night,
I'm too tired for a sex life.
 
My fists rage and tears pour,
When I discover your arms
Embracing another lover
After coffee one early morn.
 
My ears listen to 
Your words of regret and
Pleads for a second chance
For things to be like
When we first met.
 	
My fingers dial 
Seeking third party counsel
To repair our shattered union.
 
My brain waves 
Shift to understand your
Thoughts and your feelings, 
While I bitterly convey my own.
 
My hand re-opens 
To forgive your sins
And make amends.
 
My lips part to 
Receive your kiss in the
Night in a sea of 
Skin in our warm bed.
 
My heart flutters, 
We’ve truly become one,
Years after we bore our son.

everytime i see your face

Fight

I've got the headphones in my ears, but nothing's playing. 
I've got you on my mind, but you're not here.
I've got you in my heart, but I can't feel you.
You're always right there, but yet, you're never near.

Our song is playing, but I can't hear the music. 
I'm just waiting for you to walk through that door.
I said, well shouted, some things I didn't mean.
We argued, but you've always come back home before.

Now, I'm curled up in your t-shirt on the big chair.
Now, my stubborn nature has kicked into gear.
Now, I don't really want to see your face.
Now, when you come home, I hope you feel fear.

I hope your heart starts racing as fast as your thoughts.
I hope you're nervous because you may have ran that red light.
You always love to make me mad, because you think I'm cute angry.
Then again, you're always afraid to lose me when we fight.

Your headlights flicker on the wall across from me.
Despite myself, I'm not angry anymore.
In fact, my heart won't stop racing, and I actually have butterflies.
All of this in anticipation of you walking through the door.

I keep my hardened, stubborn composure.
Until I see you come in with your tail between your legs and your puppy face.
One look and all of my stubborn attitude fades,
And I can't even remember why we were fighting in the first place.

The Green Monster of Agonizing Ifs.

My mind is in constant torment.
You say you love me, and she's a friend.

You say there is nothing to worry about.
But, why is my heart clouded with doubt?

Intrusive thoughts plague my inner being.
Every smile, every word uttered; I go on and on imaging.

As co-workers, you see more of her; than of me.
When we find time together, thoughts are still haunting.

I want to forever bury my turbulent mind in a coffin.
So, I do not have to, continually cry and think so often.

Why do I always ask questions to add fuel to the “ammo?”
You answer all my questions, do I really want to know?

I am unsightly, high self esteem is not my part of me.
I feel so inadequate, ignorant and ugly.

You still come home and sleep in my bed.
Then why does my heart continue to feel “misled?”

I know marriage should be built on trust.
You’ve never cheated, but; my heart feels biased.

When you leave; my heart grows empty.
The green monster starts in again, with unending ifs of agony.

Teardrops of War and Pain

Teardrops dropping,
My heart nearly stopping,
When you left me standing here,
You said "Goodbye, my sweet dear."

I asked for you to stay,
If not for another year, then perhaps one more day.
You looked me in the eyes,
And said "This may be our last goodbyes."

You kissed me with tenderness,
As if this may be our last, final kiss.
Ours lips parting,
The situation hardening.

As I said "I love you so,
I don't want you to go",
Pulled up a sandy, monstrous truck,
Alerted to shoot, but not at a duck.

I saw such pain in your eyes,
When we told one another of our love, and then goodbye's.

I'll never forget what happened that day;
I can't sleep at night, so I walk to the bay.
The bay is so full of our love,
The one thing that accompanies me is a dove.

I cry teardrops of war and pain,
To only know of what I lost, but will never again gain.
I hope for you to come back home,
Until I find out that I have to find a silent, cement dome.

Everyday and every night,
The pain is too much to bear to eat even a bite,
As I sit here at the eating table,
I'll admit, I don't think, anytime soon, I'll be stable.

The pain is too much to take,
I'm dying of this terrible heart ache.

I cry so many teardrops of war and pain,
That I think I'll never, again be sane.

Our Love

                        Our love is so beautiful,so strong, so pure&true. When we are apart my heart falls apart. When we are together,my heart is all better. Laying in your arms,I feel safe from all harm. Every time we kiss,angels sing and bells ring. When we make love, nothing can compare to the love we share. Being with you is like Heaven on Earth. Nothing will ever compare to the love you and I share.

Simplicity

Your face is like an angel, calming and serene.
I pace back and forth just thinking of when you came into my life.
I honestly believe in you, I'm holding on as the days drag on.
I've become lost in your eyes and I can tell that I was offered a chance.
A chance to be the best I can, to pick myself up and not have a set plan.
Everyday is like a winding road where each turn leads to better things.
I'll hit bumps and get bruised but I'll never be hurt by you.

How Big Is His Heart

There is a simple fact in life that I understand
The size of the heart is the worth of the man

I once was a man who had a little bit of wealth
Though I was very worthless up inside of myself

Thought I was smarter than the average guys
It was just another spoonful of the devil’s lies

Sacks of dope that were the size of a small suitcase
With an endless amount of money that I could waste

But to just stay happy it took every bit of it all
Soon as I got back home another girl would call

To big a whore to ever be strong enough to say no
Let me get the shower hot, do a shot, and then we can go

I had all the happiness and dope that money could buy
I could never think about stopping because of the high

I had to keep running I could never even try to slow
Because I had a shattered heart and a very barren soul

“You got it right”, and then one day I met my wife
The everlasting, never ending, true love of my life

We didn’t slow right away she just stayed at my side
Only person I ever met that could go stride for stride

But like all things in life it suddenly came to an end
I completely confessed to the burdens of all of our sins

The Police let everyone go free and I was back in the pen
I guess once again I found I cared a little too much to win

My lessons and changes in this life have been so very vast
Letting one dream completely go made another one last

The lesson in is this poem from the first word to the last
If you want to love the future make the best use of the past

The hardest thing I ever learned, really gave me my start
Way to Judge the true size of a man, “How big is his heart”


------------------------------------------------------------
Even though this poem was written in regards to my
wife and I, my wish is to dedicate it to all the fellers
on the site that have hearts of gold as well as those
ladies who have husbands or boyfriends with hearts of
Gold. In fact even though it is written from a mans 
perspective I reckon it would also apply to the Ladies
who also have pure beautiful hearts. Took me a lifetime
to learn this I took great pride in being mean and cruel
until the day The Lord set me free and opened up my
heart. We all choose our own path and making the most
of it is all we can do. If one of you decides to stay off
the road I was on, Each of our paths will brighten cause
the Lord never fails though he does test which of course
makes us that much stronger. God Bless, MJ

Unseen Oarsman

Each artist stroke created an illusion of depth, color, and placement by contasting colors, 
lights and darks the picture comes alive...A life that carries on into hearts and minds as long 
as that picture lives...It seems as though one know this person through the eyes of the 
artist...In pictures where one knows just knows that someone else is there...One's 
imagination can run wild with ideas of who this person is and what relationship to others in 
the painting...As in "Summertime" 1894-1895 Mary Cassatt (1845-1926) Oil on Canvas..Who 
is rowing the boat?  He must really love this lovely delicate woman  and precious child to row 
the boat for their enjoyment...He must look at her with eyes of love that says I would do 
anything for you even lay down my life if necessary..

The Heart of Men

It has been broken 
It has been step on 
Even held in the hand by another 
It has been take care 
Kick to the side 
And place on a Mantel for the world to see 
Even dealing with the fortress of cover emotions 
Lies a person at with the strength of Atlas
And the mind of a super computer   
A heart as genuine as gold 
Hard to contain as the wind that blows by her face
It has tame the hardest of woman
It has create rhythmic music and poems
That has define the world today 
All because of the heart of this man will 
A will created by Pain, Stress, Anger, and Happiness
The driving force behind every man
That hasn’t and will not give up on the thing that has his heart

Sissy

Like a school boy who turned red as the little girl batted her eyes,
   like puppy love at summer camp two weeks was like a life time,
       like a snow cone on a hot summer day... melting down the sides,
            38 yrs.old, time chiseled yet you bring out the sissy no one can find.
A smile as wide as a 9 yr.old on Christmas morning,
    a laugh as heart felt as a little baby or a child at three, 
          like the early bird eager to raise and to perch and sing, 
               after all you still love to see that sissy smile you bring me,
to buy roses not any ones the ones that I now will make you smile
           to sit and write you a poem of love and forever
                 to dress to impress you even for just awhile
                      no one would even think this of me... a sissy never 
no one knows no one can see,
    you make me fill like a young kid,
         to hold your soft hand is to be free,
             look can you see?heres that sissy I hid.
as life washes over me,
   as it rains problems we all have,
      by my side looking waiting to see,
           that sissy... and it makes you glad,
my heart is you,
   my world ... I see,
      in your eyes of blue, 
           that sissy you see in me,
my valentine,
   you are to me,
        my every thing, 
            love your sissy.

Holding You

I asked you if I could hold you 
close for comfort and safety 
you held me till the morning 
break .

Stake my love on you sweet man
always just to be held by you ,
in your embrace the world 
slips by. 

To feel your heart beating 
close to mine while resting 
in the middle of your chest 
so safe. 

Nothing better than to feel 
your breaths as they float 
over my face so close to 
your face. 

Never has there been a 
sweeter moment I can 
recall until my heart 
did fall, 

so for you and it has 
never been mine to 
rule since that sweet 
day. 

Ever since you took me 
into your embrace 
and swore your love 
nothing has been 
the same. 

Now I hold you close 
and you hold me close 
we are together for 
the rest of time. 

Always going to hold 
you sweet love... 
And I know you will 
always hold me 
too. 


Dedicated to my Sweetie Michael.

You Are My Curse

I had to let it all go,
The day and night,
Their hours ran too slow.
It was more than just a fight.
I trusted you and knew you,
My love succumbed to the worst,
Faith and loyalty just wouldn’t do.
You became my curse.
 
I was pulled down to Earth’s plane,
And judgment did set in.
Then new days begin.
I stood parallel as many went insane.
My heart drenched and my soul crunched,
I couldn’t let my heart take this very much.
I died and I died losing each endless breath,
I swallowed the victory and ate your death.
 
You reaped and I sowed,
But I saw no one grow,
Not even you.
What was I to do?
I let it go very slow,
Now I am all grown,
And I’m on my own.
I died watching you go.
 
I will always remember begging mercy,
I will always know this pain,
You are my curse you see,
And nothing did you gain.
I can never just be alright,
I can never love you the same again.
I died watching you go out of sight.
You are my curse and forever in my heart you made an end.

When Push Came To Shove

   

As she choked down his bitter words she knew,
Their love had died and they were through.
Something had happened but she did not know,
What had she done to cause her man to want to go.

Whatever the task she had always given her best,
But something or someone had put their love to the test.
Always so faithful with no thoughts of being untrue,
She dropped to her knees crying Lord what did I do?

Then as if someone switched on a light she knew she was not to blame,
As she raised her self up she said maybe two can play this old game.
From her closet she brought out her sexiest dress,
Her heart was breaking and getting even would not cure this mess.

Tears in her eyes and her head in her hands,
Mascara running down her cheeks as she tries to understand.
What a day this had been and she wished it would hurry and end,
She felt like she had been in a tornado and ripped apart by its winds.

He just walked back into the house and she sat there and stared,
This was the man she had loved with all her heart and thought he too had cared.
He tried to make small talk but she knew it was over and had accepted her fate,
He said baby I’m sorry but the message had come a little too late.

She started to pack but he said you’re not going to leave,
She thought to her self like you’re really going to grieve.
As a matter of fact I think that is exactly what I’ll do,
You don’t love me that is plain and I’ll not be a burden on you.


This is just a poem that came tp mind and is dedicated to all the broken loves out there,Ron

A wife's yearning to be a mother

Please forgive me my love for I am not in my right mind
dysphoria has taken over me. It's a merciless disease that shatters my liveliness
do not think a single time that you've caused this ailment upon me
without you this diease would become a tragic demise
you save me from the end each smile you reveal
you liberate my tortured heart with every kind word you deliver
you might wonder why I suffer from this heartless lonliness
All I sigh for is a life and soul conceived from our immortal love
a life that proves our love can grow and our essence will live eternally
a soul that mirrors your selfhood and captures your true character
I crave for your innocence to grow in my womb and develop into a definite entity
I want to live knowing I gave you all the affection my heart can bestow
I need to feel the product of our love evolve within me
I'm aware of how powerful our endearment is and how profound our souls marry
If our love is truly everlasting then patient and effervescent I shall remain
Knowing one miraculous day our spirits will conjoin and create a divine new life...

My Love

Looking out of my window 

I wanted to send you that 

Perfect kiss

Thinking of you with such

Delight

By the burning candle light

Sipping champagne

As the bubbles tickle my nose

Painting my heart with such

Love

And passion from my soul

From the plateau I sit

Admiring   a love that is so sensual

Holding so much pleasure

The moment so sultry wrapping my

Body 

Into a silken gown

Flowed in a fine soft lustrous

Pink..

Softly as it wrapped me

To meet my love my heart my

Everything my life

A Father With A Heart Divided

A Divided Heart... I know of a father who had a "divided heart." Within a few years, his family "fell apart." When his heart changed... I remember when. Here's when, I believe, it all began... He started to help others that were in need. Sharing their problems... his heart would "bleed." What started out with the "best of intentions." Giving others much of his focus and attention. Very little time he spent with his family at home. Many days and nights, his wife felt "all alone." "What happened to the one who "promised his love?" She'd ask for "time alone" ...and "he'd give her a shove." He began to look at others' kids as "his kids" too. Trying to be a "father to all" ... by the acts he would do. Neglecting his God-given duty as high priest of the house. He would confide to a "pretty lady" in a nice blouse. His family tried to warn him of the dangers ahead, His wife would cry each night she went to bed. HIs family did that for so many years, he held so dear. Each went their separte ways... as any love dissappeared. This heartbreaking story made the heavenly father sad. By the divided heart... of the one... many knew as "dad." May this be a challenge both to me and to you. That our heart remain loyal, committed and true! By Jim Pemberton

The Lovers Song

Her: My heart is a beating drum
Listen to the rhytmic flow
As each thud causes the blood to pump to my heart
And the passion to my soul

His: How can I listen to the rhythmic flow
When I am the rhythmic flow
The single blow 
Of the constant flow of passion to your soul

Her: More like the heat to my flame
You fill me with desire
Making my love come down
Leaving me feeling like my body is on fire

His: My love let your body burn 
For a single touch will coooool you down
With my lips I'll deliver a kiss that will heat you up
Only to lay you down

Her: I love every part of you, your lips and your sweet essence
My body tingles when you speak, and moistens at your presence

His: Your African King
Every part of me was created by God to catch your attention
From my fiery lips to other things I'd rather not mention

Her: Mention them to me sweetheart
I have all the time in the world
Make me remember why your my love and why I'm your girl
Protest your love for me, in and out of time
Give me your heart, as I present to you mine

His: You will find my love for you in and out of time
As you present  your heart to me you will find 
in time 
you already had mine

The Decision

This is a big decision, 
That I need to make. 
Everyone says, 
That it is to soon. 
But I look at them, 
and laugh. 

I show them that, 
I am more confident, 
In the choices I make. 
But at night I think, 
Am I ready for this, 
Life changing decision? 

I think of my life, 
before I met you. 
I don't think I have felt, 
this much for anyone. 

So I ask myself again, 
Am I ready for you? 
AmI ready to trust, 
With all that I have? 
Am I ready to risk, 
My heart and my soul? 

I want to say yes, 
Because that is what my heart, 
is telling me to say. 
But I want to run away, 
Because my heart is not ready, 
For my mind is yelling at me. 

My heart is racing, 
I'm so confused. 
What should I do? 
I always let my heart, 
do the leading, 
But how can I trust, 
that my heart is in the right. 

When I see your smile, 
You heal my heart. 
You make me feel, 
like I did before, 
this thing called love, 
Took over my life.

The Way To See Heaven

They say the way to see Heaven,
is look to the skies.
Yet, all I have to do
is look into your eyes.

Your heart is pure;
Your heart is true.
That is why I
fell in love with you.


I see your love
when our eyes meet
I feel your  love
with so much heat

  I feel your love
when my heart skips a beat
I feel it when it
knocks me off of my feet


 I will love you
till the end,at my death
I will love you,
till my very last breath.

Taken For Granted

Never cherished
Taken for granted
Forgotten
More often than not
No one truly has seen
The beauty that lies
Inside my heart 
When I love someone
Every breath I breathe
Is only for my love
So I can spend one more
Moment giving them a tender
Kiss or loving embrace
I cannot live without their love
It is like life saving oxygen 
That I would perish without

So every year that passes
Little pieces of my heart die
I struggle for every breath
For every love that comes my way
Comes with a double edge sword
For my desire I must always pay a price
Abuse is the only kind of love I have known
It either comes in the form of neglect
Comes in the form of battering my body or
Lastly it comes by the battering of my soul
Through words of emotional abuse that are uttered
I have been left a damaged, incomplete woman that 
Does not know how to recognize anything but dysfunction

Love is our reason for living
But, love forsakes so many
The world is a lonely place
Many people don't have
Someone to love them
They sleep alone without
A lover to embrace them
They have no one with which
They can share a meal 
No one to hold them 
When they cry
No one to hold their
Hand when they are ill
No one to stand by them
When the road they are 
On gets a little bumpy

If you are fortunate 
Enough to be loved
Cherish what you have
Been blessed with
Hold on to it tight 
Never letting it go
Treasure the gift that has
Been bestowed upon you
Always let your love know
How much they mean to you
You never know if that will
Be the last time you see them
Our life span has no guarantees
Live every day like it is your last
Put an end to your searching
Because what lies before you
Is where you will find true utopia

Suicide via Love

My heart dies
Everytime you hurt me
My eyes cry tears
When you break my heart
Over and over again 
I loose little pieces of my soul
When you treat me with such indifference
Sometimes when I glance in the mirror
I cannot see my reflection staring back at me
Because my soul is slowly dying
Piece by piece is chipped away and lost
Because of the infinite sorrow
That you inflict upon me with such malice
I cannot go on like this
But, I won't be breathing much longer
You are killing me, causing me to expire
Every minute of every day

I hold out my arms to embrace
Death, an ending so sweet
To such a tragic existence
When the clock strikes midnight
I take journey to the cemetary
As I walk the eerie grounds
My heart is filled with envy
For the corpses that lay here
Are numb, they feel no more pain
No more broken hearts, no more abuse
They are forever free of their torment
The banshees will be coming for me soon
When I hear their screams I will eagerly
Run to them embracing the end of my
Tortured and disappointing life
For I never got my horse drawn carriage 
I never got to go to the ball in my 
Blue satin gown and glass slippers
Prince Charming never came for me either
There are two Princes that will come for me though
The first is the Prince of Nightmares: I have known him
For years just by many different names and faces
This Prince always wants the same things: my love,
My support, my sexuality, my womb or my devotion.
This Prince of Nightmares hypnotizes me first with his charms
Then on his elevator we descend right into the pits of Hell together
He leaves me there alone to rot and decay in his blackened abyss 
While he takes the elevator back to where we just left from
The second Prince I will meet is the Prince of Darkness
We shall make each other's acquaintance very soon
For too many sins with my Prince's of Nightmares has
Assured me a place in his fiery den
Leaving my body a pile of ashes

The Man In the Moon

Under a summer moonlit sky
I sat and pondered the love of
my life.

I sat and I prayed to the heavens
above, to please oh please send
me someone to love.

Give him a heart as big as the sky,
with a touch as gentle as a new 
baby's sigh.

Make him funny, oh man in the moon,
so he can make me laugh from night
until noon.

Give him love in his heart for all of 
mankind.  Oh I know this man won't
be easy to find.

For days upon days I repeated my plea
and told the heavens above 'Can't you see
I need a true love in my life for all to see.'

Weeks went by, and then one day as I was
making my way through the town, something
made me turn around.  And standing there
with brown eyes and brown hair, was truly
the answer to my prayer.

A Divided Heart

I know of a father who
 had a "divided heart."
Within a few years, 
his family "fell apart."

When his heart changed... I
 remember when.
Here's when, I believe,
it all began...

He started to help others 
that were in need...Sharing their problems... 
his heart would "bleed."

What started out with the 
"best of intentions."
Giving others much of his 
focus and attention.

Very little time he spent 
with his family at home.
Many days and nights, 
his wife felt "all alone."

"What happened to the one 
who "promised his love?"
She'd ask for "time alone" ...and 
"he'd give her a shove."

He began to look at others'
 kids as "his kids" too.
Trying to be a "father to all" ... 
by the acts he would do.

Neglecting his God-given duty 
as high priest of the house...
He would confide to a "pretty lady"
 in a nice blouse.

His family tried to warn him 
of the dangers ahead...
His wife would cry each 
night she went to bed.

HIs family did that for so many years, 
he held so dear...
Each went their separte ways...
 as any love dissappeared.

This heartbreaking story made 
the heavenly father sad...
By the divided heart... of the one...  
many knew as "dad."

May this be a challenge both 
to me and to you...
That our heart remain loyal, 
committed and true!

We once were together as one

We once were together as one
                    by
                Garrick

So tell me now where did you go
That dark night of sorrow and of plight
Your heart for me you left behind
Passing with harrow harsh pain

So deep inside a cold blade does twist
Did my blood cause your flight
Your heart from me you took away
Departing in haste, a hallow agony

We once were one, far from all fear
Then walked with cheer through trouble always near
My heart was yours, you left anyway
Vanished in heated hot blood boiling

But back you came, together again
Two travelers in a strange lit dream
Our hearts no claim, one just the same
Embarked in hope, hurling through some unrequited life

As My Heart Flew Away

My life is a mess without you by my side,
The whole tragic story started with a simple lie.
Then the lies became bigger as bits and pieces of my heart blew away.
I wanted to be strong as you played me along,
Watching me praying, pondering, with my heart rapidly flying away.
Your lies became realities and my heart was soon gone because
Sadly enough you sang the same song.
When I know and have proof that the thing’s you’re doing are wrong.
But apparently you don’t care because you are already gone.
It’s funny how someone can break your heart but you can still manage to love 
them wit all he tiny pieces.

Forbidden Love

Across the crowded room
she caught him looking at her.
Tears pooled in her deep brown eyes 
as a sad smile filled her face.

Her heart was shattered
as he turned his back to her. 
She stumbled out the door 
running for emotional cover.

Forbidden love is a painful thing 
hidden deep inside, 
never to see the light of day, 
never allowed to fly. 

Abandoned and alone 
just like the house she’s in, 
her heart cries for mercy, 
and then, HE walked in. 

From across a darkened room
they sought each other out. 
You could feel the tension mounting 
as their love drew them along. 

All else was forgotten 
as eyes locked on eyes. 
The surge of desire
lit a fire deep inside.

Their forbidden love,
no longer a painful thing
was free to fly at last
and seek the light of day.

Alone

Absence does not make
Your heart grow fonder
It leaves you empty
You go mad from
The constant silence
Not even a whisper
To bring you solace
Trapped in solitude
You cry out for your love
But, they cannot be found
No beautiful words
To keep you alive
No warm embrace
To stimulate your senses
Your heart is slowly dying
Pieces of your soul disappear
One by one until nothing is left
All that remains is a huge void
That cannot be filled until you
Are reunited with your love again

Commitment

These are my letters to you   O Beloved
how else can I make you see
these are all I have to send you
when you aren't here with me
 
I want to wrap my arms around you
lay your head unto my breast
capture all your falling tears
and in my heart to take your rest
 
Want to share all my emotions
right down to the smallest thought
retire with you when there is night
daily rise with the sun our lot
 
All the things I want to tell you
if I could these words make speech
but if you can't understand me
they'll not your heart to able reach
 
I want to hear your voice again
for it is pleasant to my ears
within its sound is music
always soothing to all my fears
 
I think this is the kind of life
what we call God would want for you
but nothing like this can reach your heart
unless you also want it too
 
You can close your heart and walk away
but I hope you'll see and not forget
that to share your life in every way
a devotion you could not regret

Liberty

She waits for him to call her
But the phone just doesn't ring
A knock on the door, shatters her soul
From the heartache that it brings

There stands two men in uniform
They ask her to be seated
Her heart weighs heavy with sorrow
Her hopes and dreams depleted

They tell the woman, "He's not dead,
He's only missing in action"
But for a soldier in Afghanistan
This brought her no satisfaction

This was his second tour of duty
And was scheduled to get a leave
This news that her husband was missing 
Was impossible to believe

She's heard about the horrible things
They do to a captured G.I.
She falls to the floor in a puddle of tears
As the woman begins to cry

Three weeks later, and still no news
She's numb, for there's no more tears
She hears a knock, for the second time
Could this be her deepest fears?

Once again two men stand in uniform
As her heart begins to bleed
Then suddenly, a third man appears
For her husband had finally been freed

This poem was written in honor 
Of the soldiers who keep us free
And we should never take for granted
This thing called Liberty

Silent Touch

Silent touch awakens the spirit
before the early pre-dawn light
as Eros’ salute alerts the mind,
in rhythmical readiness stands
masculinity’s priapic member,
awaiting coitus’s inner embrace 
love’s symphonic masterpiece, 
as two lovers answer desire’s
eager call teaching the subtle
ever tender art of making love

Silent touch inflames the soul
in sensuous dreams of ecstasy
an eloquent caress touching
the panorama of existence in 
innocent poetic sonnets of 
intimate wordless gestures, 
an opus of blissful thoughts 
igniting two beating hearts 
imagining the silent peaceful
life-giving art of making love

Silent touch is heartfelt words
like the soft embrace of a pure
forever passionate love letter,
a special closeness kindled in 
naïveté’s shared wonderment 
embracing the quiet moments
of special remembrances and
jubilation of two minds joined 
as one in the serenity magical
joy of the act of making love

Silent touch is a soundless echo 
a special harmony giving birth 
devoted intimacy and sentience 
of the mystery of the two spirits,  
dancing in the flickering light 
of natural unconditional love, 
enlivening every tender moment 
living and breathing, a special 
bond formed between two souls 
in the delicate act of making love

My name is Mr. Moore,
And I’m 5’2”.
If you’re a young a black male,
I care about you.
I am the father of two daughters,
And the husband of one.
I believe in running,
Until the race is done.
I appreciate music,
I appreciate it much.
I am a drummer,
With a distinct touch.
I enjoy the sound of a saxophone,
And if you mention Jesus Christ,
IT’S ON.
I play both drums,
And sax by ear.
I can play the rhythmic notes,
If they are near.
I like counting money,
Because I’m crazy about math.
I have a little "hooping" skills,
So don’t get in my path.
I had coached for five years,
Being champs of the final three.
Was put out at the buzzer,
The first two were defeats.
I had been with “The Academy”,
For eight years now.
“Tricks of the Trade”,
Was about showing young men how.
I am unique,
And like a little rhythm.
That is why I wrote,
“My Bio” to be a poem.

Purist Pain

Look through the "windows" of my soul..
See their "pain" as it takes its toll.

My heart beats with each tear dropped.
Try as I may they cannot be stopped.

Hoping one day my heart will be filled; with you again.
With the purist of love, that we once had; until the end.

Your Love

Your love is like a melody
softly singing to my heart.
Your laugh is like the air I brethe
something I cannot, will not part.

Your heart is like a red balloon
that grows bigger with each breath.
Your life is like eternal time,
neverending, not even by death.

As long as I breathe air and live,
you will always be alive and kind.
Your memory will live with me,
in my heart and in my mind.

You have left, footprints on my soul.
Our memories have scarred me true,
and the absolute truth is,
I cannot, will not, live without you.

Little Penny's Tears Won't Dry

Last night I had a talk with the stars
Did you hear me crying?
I followed the path we used to walk
The grass on either side is dying.
   The roses in the garden lay wilted
The sun has lost its shine
The parrot I gave you no longer sings
Her heart seems broken; so is mine.
   I closed my eyes to dream today
There your shadow lingered by
The night came and you faded away
The longest my heart has ever sighed.
   I heated some coffee; the coffee’s still cold
Little Penny’s tears won’t dry
The bed is made and sits alone
Dinner needs making; I haven’t the heart to try.
   Your picture sits upon the mantle
Only there do the flowers bloom
The kitten cries to be alone
The night has forgotten the moon.
   I can’t keep these tears from falling
I see my heart when I see the blue sky
The world has forgotten how to spin
Penny is crying “why did my mommy have to die?”

Pushed - Dedicated to my Husband

How much can one woman take?
Seagoatianblack deceit thrives in you
You are the embodiment of evil
No conscience lives in your soul
Remorse is an absent emotion 
In your slippery existence
You hide behind you deception
So you won't be exposed for
The filthy hypocrite that you are
Stand in front of the mirror
STAND THERE NOW!
I COMMAND YOU!
You won't  like what you see
For you will see the face of
Lucifer staring back at you
Seagoatianblack you are the devil
Just like Satan you have many disguises
Like a chameleon you changed your
Outside, pretending to be a loving husband
But, inside your heart your sinister,
Lustful desires remained totally
Engulfing my love for you
But, I won't roam in your Hell
Not anymore, not ever
Your heart cannot feel love
Or return love to anyone
I was loving an empty
Shell all these years
I was kissing a corpse
After all your heart is
Dead just like a corpse
So lay in your coffin
Because you are deceased
To me in my heart anyway
I have no memories of you
Because I erased you from
My mind and thoughts
It is like you never existed

The Rose Tattoo - For My Husband

To my one true love
I give you this gift
That is everlasting
That will remain 
On my body
As a testament of my devotion to you
Until my last breath

My heart is breaking because of my bitter regret
For I owed you this homage long ago
I just hope this long awaited tribute
Takes you to cloud nine
Blissfully causing your heart to sing 
For above the rose tattoo
The name of my heart's desire is displayed
An attestation of my love for you, my darling

To My Husband

My heart will always belong to you no matter where you go,
And years will pass us by yet still our love will grow,
From the very first day we meet inside I knew you'd be,
The man who would complete my life and love only me,
Yes at first we had our downs and I thought we were through,
I guess god had his eyes on us cause he lead me back to you,
I can't believe it's been two years and still our love is strong,
I never thought dreams could come true until you proved me wrong,
In this time we've built a life you, me and our baby girl,
I Love you with all my heart I'll shout it to the world,
I'll always be true to you and never intend to lie,
I promise to hold you close and never say goodbye,
You'll forever be my husband, my lover and my best friend,
I swear to love you for the rest of my life until forever ends,
For now and always you'll be the king of my life,
As I continue to be your queen and number one wife!

"Net Lust"

You sit in your "man cave" lusting off the net..
Not bringing it up, because you know it makes me upset.

And yet, evil fingers invite me into your domain.
If I turned to the "dark side" I wouldn't be the same.

My heart is hurting but, who am I joking?
I know what you look up, and what you are enjoying.

You delete "my hurt" and cover your faces of lust.
Too late, you have crossed my boundaries of trust.

You peek into windows hoping for something new.
Then you click to close them after "you're through".

And yet, some would come to say...
At least he's not physically going astray.

My heart ruminates over this theory.
Yet mentally it leaves my thoughts feeling weary.

Society~Go join him in his wonderland of cyber fun!
But, my soul apprehends, this would be morally wrong.

Poem

Once, I was a poem---
A memory of a rose, ever-watchful
Of the orb, whilst angel’s trumpet fills the air.

Oh, sometimes then, I was a sweet poem---	
The art of your heart;
‘Twas pure and simple, ‘cause that’s what I am.

The poem and I---fourteen lines
Of uncluttered life, warming the coldness of nights; 
Relentlessly, rhyming to the sound of your breath.

A sonnet of love, you proudly wrote 
Of me, but that was before… 
You lustily engaged yourself, with a free-verse.

Every time I look into their eyes.
I know you’re here, 
I feel your lips upon mine
every time my heart breaks.
I know you watch over them,
But
Do you see the pain you brought by leaving us?
Do you see the wonder, that they want to know, in there eyes?
The Questions that they want answered?
Why you?
Why God?
The night bring on more questions,
that they want answered.
Please mend my broken heart.
Please stop the wondering building in there eyes.
Please answer the questions they need answered.
Please still be with us, Forever.

For My Husband

My love for you will always be a love that lasts forever,
And my love for you these past few years is stronger now than ever.
For only in your loving arms I feel that I belong,and I've
wondered if deep inside your heart your love was just as strong.
My love for you has always burned
like a long eternal flame,
and it's warmth heats up my body
as I whisper out your name.
My love for you is deeper than the 
deepest ocean floor,
And as I close my eyes and think 
of you my heart still yearns for more.
My love for you is that one of a kind,
that everyone wants but is so hard 
to find, and another thing I want you to know
that my dying day I'll still love you so.....

My Oldest Baby

So precious at birth tender and pure
For an aging heart they are the cure
My oldest daughter Sarah Jho
Is such a blessing to my soul
Brutally honest in what she has to say
A wonderful mother in every way
She gave us Joshua my first grandson
What a marvelous thing she has done
Together her and Justin walk through this life
Together forever husband and wife
These days that seems an impossible task
It seems everyone wears some sort of mask
But these two kids were made for each other
He is a good father and her a good mother
I wrote this poem so they would know
They are a blessing to my heart and soul

Page 69

Honey, let’s take a trip
….to the bed, away 
From the lights and sound of home cinema;
And there, I’ll read you, with passion
This rare book I chanced upon
at a local bookstore, when I was 
Looking for Apollinaire.

This book is about Kama Sutra
And it speaks about love,
With vivid illustrations of each techniques; 
It says, it’ll teach us how to be patient… 
On exploring ourselves;
And interestingly, without the dire need 
Of taking…you know…the viagra.

This book will consume us,
Approximately, forty five minutes or less;
It has 70 pages that will, surely, soak 
The dryness of our life.

Ok my dear, just don’t start on page 69!

Opal

Mom Opal, not opal the stones
Is 4'9" with stong, small bones.

She is smart, but her heart is sick.
For many years (82), it's gone tick.

Her words of wisdom are so endearing.
She is sweet and a bit hard of hearing.

Larry talked to her last eve - his Mom.
Cried a bit that her heart is not strong.

We are praying she will last some more.
I'm saying she is a woman we so adore.

She's a sweetheart - wonderful dear.
We want her to last for another year.

She had open heart surgery years ago.
Has to have another procedure to show

What is wrong now, a clogged artery?
The only way that her doctor can see

If she will have to have it done again.
I will keep saying my prayers. Amen.

10 Cent Dance

sorta' like the 20's
this stupid dance I had
married to a foolish, cheating woman
me, the cuckhold, oh so sad

now I dance no more
on the danceroom floor
now I'm up there on the stage,
with my music to engage

your ears, maybe your feet,

Oceans Between Us

So long mistakes heart breaks these lonely times will take your place 
We walk separated sands but through these times i understand One
Look one kiss only in dreams would love feel like this.

Your far away but my love grows anyway i wonder right now if you feel
The same way oceans between us but on this day here i say i love you 
I've loved you for so long.

I need you because space and time wont last to long i close my eyes and i'm 
With you never let you go...

Your far away but my love grows anyway i wonder right now if you feel
The same way oceans between us but on this day here i say i love you I've 
Loved you for so long.

Can we carry  on will you be okay on your own sometimes i cant wait to
Hear you breath on the telephone just to make sure tell me again what's
Our favorite song.

( Memories) of you and me a piece of me fade away..
When i think of you i cry on command and all this sadness makes
me a better man.

Your far away but my love grows anyway i wonder right now if you feel
The same way oceans between us but on this day here i say i love you 
I've loved you for so long. I've missed you bright my way cure my lonely day
{Oceans between us}

God please believe me i'm dyeing with out her love don't deceive me 
Because i cant live with out her. My heart is so numb your warm embrace
Will put a smile on my down and out face.

Your far away but my love for you grows anyway i wonder right now if you feel
The same way oceans between us but on this day here i say i love you
I've loved you for so long.

I can be this strong girl it wont be to long....

the old oak

Verse 1 
There’s a house on a hill with an old oak at the side 
There’s a bridge down the way crossing a river that’s wide 
And the green hills roll forever, it’s a beautiful sight 
With a backdrop of mountains their tips covered white 

Verse 2 
There’s a house on a hill with an old oak at the side 
Where I carved out our names with a small pocket knife 
And the letters we etched in a timeless old tree 
Say that I’ll always love you long past eternity 

Chorus 
I’ll soon be with you angel, this body grows tired 
I’ll soon be with you angel for soon I’ll expire 
I’ll soon be with you angel never then will we part 
I’ll soon be with you angel be still my beating heart 

Verse 3 
There’s a house on a hill with an old oak at the side 
And a single headstone marks the place where you lie 
A chair by the side of your last resting place 
Which I sit in for hours and just stare into space 

Verse 4 
There’s a house on a hill with an old oak at the side 
Tended by a lost soul who hasn’t much time 
It won’t be long now and we’ll be one again 
There’s been so much pain since I lost you my friend 

Chorus 
I’ll soon be with you angel, this body grows tired 
I’ll soon be with you angel for soon I’ll expire 
I’ll soon be with you angel never then will we part 
I’ll soon be with you angel be still my beating heart

Deyab

Deyab my love your eyes tell me your love is true.
your touch is so passionate yet so gentle.
your heart is so caring.
it calls me in my sleep.
i dream of only you.
my heart skips a beat when i see you.
my body tells me you are the one for me.
my mind thinks of only you.
my eyes see you for who you are.
you are my one true love.
i have dreamed of someone like you my whole life and now i finally found you.

Julio to Marylyn!!

Heart                  
 As I follow my heart
down its path
straight and true,
I know it leads only...
Only to you.

Should the path become misted
Cloudy with harm,
My heart will not swerve...
Its course, straight to your arms.

This path is fearless to walk,
Though fear there might be.
My heart is boundless, gloriously free.

Lit by the light... 
The light of your heart
That you've given to me.

Steadfast Love

Though others tried to spark a fire,
You hold the eternal flame;
Though others scorned my heart's desire,
Your acceptance took my shame.
Though others changed from day to day,
You remain the same;
Though others rallied for undue praise,
Your honor brings me fame.
Though others played my heart and soul,
You steal... win the game;
Though others tried to put me in holds,
Me, only your heart can tame.
Though others wouldn't belong to me,
You even wanted my name;
Though others condemned me within,
Your response took my blame.
Though others neglected my words in action,
You, my attention became;
Though others placed me beneath themselves,
Your stedfast love overcame.

Broken Heart


My heart is broken since you
Went away..

Every sunrise I see 

Remind me of you

I try to be strong but sometime
It so hard to bear..

The memories I have of you

Make my heart ache with

The grief of missing you,

I talk to God everyday

And

I wanted to know why he

Took you away so soon..

We were only 23 and 2

Babies in tow

Why he had to take you?

Leaving me mentally in a

Mess..

Wishing these tears will go away

Cause all I see is red watery eyes

Each and everyday

Shutting me off from all the beauty

Of the sun..



Each day I

Think I would love to

Welcome a bit of sunshine..

On a friendly basic

You left my life in turmoil

Its so very hard to get my

Life back on the right track


When you went away part of

Heart, soul died with you..

You left me too soon...

These memories I perceive of

You

Have me all tangle up in grief

My heart don’t know how to

Feel happiness anymore

Nothing but darkness and images

Of sadness.

Since you went away...

I Be Missing You


One glad morning when my time
Is over..

I know I’d meet you beyond the
Sky..

Are you looking down on me
Seeing how my heart is
Broken..

I pray for you each every morning
I awake..

I pray..

You will you will be waiting for
At the golden gate..

Every night I dream of you 
Smiling and talking to me..

Hoping,

When I wake it will all be
A dream..

Wishing,

You will be lying there be
Side me..

My heart cries everyday for
You..

Remembering..

All the fun times we spend 
Together..

Some glad morning I will
See you again,

Thinking of the day you went
Away..

I walked away with my head
Hung down..

Tears..

Streaming down my face..

You know I been missing
You..

Will you wait for me at the
Golden gate..

Some glad morning when
This time is over,

I will meet you at the golden
Gate..

Never Fall in Love Again

once again
i will never fall in love again
(i told myself)
once again
i will never fall in love again
repeat2x:

i told myself i wont fall in love again
i tried to ignore the way he touch 
my skin
trying to keep my heart locked
and not letting him win
then my heart took a dramatic spin
i eventually let him in
and adored me with love(with love)
but i said

once again
i will never fall in love again
(i told myself)
once again
i will never fall in love again
repeat2x:

the way he touch me
my heart start to sing
so nice and gentle
its like it was s dream
i forgot how love feels
he showed me how love feels
but once again "i said......

once again
i will never fall in love again
(i told myself)
once again
i will never fall in love again
repeat2x:

instrumental break

ashes to ashes
dust to dust
i vowed to stay by your side
even when things are rough
you started to change
drinking booze and playing games
i cant take no more 
it's you i blame


you waste my love 
you waste my time
i packed my stuff
and said my last goodbye.......

once again
i will never fall in love again
(i told myself)
once again
i will never fall in love again
repeat2x:


fade out:
bye bye....
goodbyyyyye.....
bye bye....
goodbyyyyye.....

Can You?

Can you see my trust?
It's so easily broken and crushed.
Can you feel my passion?
It's always here, it's everlasting.
Can you see my faith?
It's a kind of love that only you and I make.
Can you feel my desire?
It's a candle flame that begins a fire.
Can you see my devotion?
It's all for you, one raw emotion.
Can you feel my fever?
It's hard to control, the heat burns deeper.
Can you see my tears?
It's always done so quiet, nobody hears.
Can you feel my caress?
It's a soft, gentle touch of tenderness.
Can you see my bliss?
It's you and only you, that I will ever miss.
Can you feel my heart ache?
It's my heart on the line, my pride at stake.
Can you see my sincerity?
It's a truth that you will know with pure clarity.
Can you feel my touch?
It's when you're close, I love you so much.
Can you see my cure?
It's so easy for you to find in a mirror.
Can you feel my fear?
It's you not being here.
Can you see my needs?
It's you that I want, please don't ever leave.

Emotions

My heart is full of emotion
Feelings that flow to the center 
In an erotically twisted motion.
Each emotion is a color created
Swarming toward the void
Filling a spot that's been deleted.
Creating a sweet addiction
Feeding my hungry affliction
With the warmth of your smile
The touch of your skin
The tingle I get the moment you begin.
You carry me higher
On the wings of desire
Your body heat bringing warmth to the fire.
The glowing sensation
In the touch of your hand
Sets my heart racing 
With no destination.
I could wrap myself into you for an eternity
Until this life releases me.
You protect me from the things I fear
You hold me close, you're always near
Anytime I cry, you'll be right here
Whispering soft, wiping away my tears.
Your soul is so bright
It sends out a sensual light
Reaching out, holding me tight.
Love with you is a different dimension
Just your kiss, releases all my tension.
Our love so true, was meant to be
I could never be alone, just me
So if I ever was to set you free
Just turn around and come back to me.

my everything

you were my everything
the one i dreamed about
my only everything
the one i can't live without
now your gone
my heart starts to break
you never knew how happy you made me
the love we shared was to big to measure
worth more the expensive stones
or even hidden treasure
and if you knew how much i loved you
,you would of thought nothing else mattered
alone in the house doesn't feel right
my heart now feels bruised and battered
what did i do to cause such hurt
you broke though my barriers 
and made me trust and love again
but because of that is why I'm hurting
what am i to do?
when i can't be with you
we had so much fun together
i thought we would be together forever
never be parted 
because our love was so strong
but stronger forces forced us apart
not caring if they broke my heart
i was so young and fragile when we met
you helped me through all my rough times
the love we felt was true and not blind
that monday afternoon 
when i finally said yes
with love so strong it was the best
loved and happiness 
i was on top of the world
not knowing it was soon to come crashing down
you were my every
the one i dreamed about
you were my everything
the one i can't live without

Angel

God sent you down as an angel of love,
He cast you down from the heavens above.
He sent you here to mend my heart,
After my life had fallen apart.

Since you came, my path has shifted,
On your wings, my spirits were lifted.
The deeper our love grew,
The higher on those wings we flew.

Your love makes my eyes gleam,
And lets me drift into a sweet dream.
You give me a rush,
And my cheeks a blush.

My heart pitter-patters,
Everything fades, and nothing else matters.
Until I see you again,
And our new life begins.

Even though we have our fights,
Knowing you're here is nice.
When my vision is blurred,
You are what calms my nerves.

I love you so much,
Your smile, your touch.
You still make my heart soar,
Which makes me want you more.

a life without you

How can I do without you?
I cannot. In love with you I hate to lose.
How long will I love you? Only always.
I look at your face everyday. With your sweet ways, with your glowing face, you 
always look so fine, you always make me smile, you always make the girls go 
wild, and everyday I think of you.

I love you so and I only want to let you know. Your eyes so brown, your heart so 
warm, and I want you for me. You are the only one and you helped me through 
my hardest times. That's why my heart belongs to you.

I know by the way you stole my heart and you're all I've ever wanted and 
everything I need. God must have spent a little more time on you. My love, your 
face is as innocent as a dove.

I crave kisses from only you and when I can't hear your voice I turn blue. Your 
smile so big, your hands so warm, and without you I will be torn. I know someday 
we will be marry and until then the days will be long and dreary.

Meant

I believe we were meant for each other
To be together for the rest of our lives
To be married to one another
To have a family together

I believe we were meant in this life
To cross one another’s path
To meet on the lunar eclipse
Our lives entwined into each other

I believe we were meant to be married
Even in a short period of time
To make it last forever
Never leaving each others side

I believe we were meant to have a family
No matter how others look at us
To walk our lives together forever
With children that we raise together

I know in my heart I am meant to love you
I believe in your heart you were meant to love me
To walk the long path ahead of us
Knowing there will be difficulties to face

As long as we stay strong for one another
There are a couple of things that I do know
I know in my heart we will make it through
I know in my heart we were meant for each other
