The Luckiest Man

The Luckiest Man


I have found that not everyone is as strong
As the skies are wide and the days are long

But in life I have found there is this one
Whose bounty makes me feel as warm as the sun

And from the moment that she first caught my eye
I knew I’d be with her til’ the day that I die

That I would love and cherish her all the day through
And do all those little things we men are supposed to do

And spend my days lost in utter bliss
That I had this beautiful woman to kiss

And there’s one true fact ‘bout her being my girl
That makes me the luckiest man in the world

whose wiener's so long it would stab ya'

until he O.D.'d on Viagra

Speak of thee

                                        He is above us in the clouds 
                                run through the fields and speak of thee
                                              He will grow roses

                                       I will be the stem of the roses 
                                       for I shall never leave your soil

                                     You will be the tree I grow beneath 
                                             and he will be our rain.

Ode to a rose on a sunset

A kiss from a rose on a sunset night,
as the clouds dip into the sea.
A kiss from that rose as the waves fall,
over the beach to a rose kissed me.

A kiss from a rose on a sunset night,
as we wrap in lovers embrace.
A kiss from a rose as homeward we go,
to a bed clothed in satin and lace.

A kiss from a rose on a sunset night,
with passion and warmth do we grasp.
A kiss from that rose that blossoms and blooms,
my hand in her labour pain clasp.

A kiss from a rose on a sunset night,
that wanton and curvy young bride.
A kiss from that rose that huddles our babe,
so loving, in motherly pride.

A kiss from a rose on a sunset night,
without whom I'd not share my life.
A kiss from that rose who selflessly filled,
the place of my darling rose wife!

When East Met West

When East Met West
She found a love at
 its best,
Such a love so difficult
to even express.
You had me from hello
with your tender Caress,
I knew from that moment,
 I wanted the Rest.
A Forbidden Love that was new,
So Strong,
How could one say that this
love was wrong ?
The Very first kiss was so brief,
So tender
I close my eyes and try to 
remember.
A skin so soft to the touch
Oh how I love you so very
much.
A smile from you , set my soul 
on fire,
the touch from your hands fills 
my body with a burning desire.
A moment with you, I want 
Forever,
I Long for the day that we shall
always be together.
Such a sweet love so pure, so true
I love each and everything that you
do.
The look in your eyes tell me how much
you care,
In my heart I pray you'll always be there.
I thank the dear Lord for sending me you,
For bringing me love so pure, so true.
A longing feeling when we must part,
That leaves an empty feeling
deep within my heart.
A hope that one day
you might see
Just how much you truly
mean to me.
Now I have sweet dreams
of our next kiss,
That is something I surely 
do not want to miss.
Your Now My love, One of my
Best Friends,
Baby I don't ever want our
love to come to an end.....

Life

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

Cops and ROBBERS

STOP! I said, STOP NOW!
Turn facing the wall
Lift your skirt slowly
Take off your panties
Throw them behind you

Don't turn around.
Now, close your eyes.
Relax for me.
I'm touching you.

Babe, I'm
trying to
spice our

marriage
I LOVE

You

Since First I Saw You

Since first I saw you, it was your eyes,
mesmerizing, your gaze transporting
me to a realm, not of fantasy, real,
where young men go when cupid’s
arrow takes root.

Since first I saw you, it was your lips,
captivating, holding me frozen 
in anticipation of our lips brushing
for the first time.

Since first I saw you, it was your voice,
a crescendo, light, invigorating, 
each word you speak intensifies 
my hearing, enveloping each
note, time ceases as I hang motionless
savoring, memorizing.

Since first I saw you, it was your hair,
long, flowing, gently rising above
your shoulders as a slight breeze
passes through sending waves
of your essence my way. 
The sun magnifying each strand, 
highlighting the minute
variances of invigorating color, 
creating a halo effect, a portrait of
your beauty forever imprinted.

Since first I saw you, It was you,
my love forever more for you,
only you.

My Blessings...

Steven, My Love, my best friend in life,

Parents that support me in whatever I do;

My two puppies Zeus & Eos (both mutts)

My heritage of Potawatomi, Huron and Sioux;

A family willing to lend me support,

A wonderful house to come home to;

A simple world I can call my own,

My siblings, out there to help pull me through;

My horses willing and full of heart,

And all of my friends - Old and New;

My semi-good health and happiness;

And the passion that writing allows me to peruse!

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

For One Day

If I had only one day left with you,
I would ask that day be in God's own time,
one day, a lifetime, every moment
an expression of love,
every hour a new adventure.

twenty four hours to slowly pass
with you at my side,
a never-ending dream,
always giving thanks,
one day left with you, 

would be eternity.

It's your attention to detail

Gentle caresses sweep my skin
with creeping tenderness,
devouring every curve of my body
and feeling its sizzling melt 
against your skin.
Your loving gaze enters my soul
striking away all attempts 
to keep the padlocked
heart and mind 
shuttered from any harm.
Your finger tips tantalize 
my womanly form
raising delightful awareness.
You lead my chin towards you
brush your nose and lips 
over my face as you slowly
move towards my mouth
then meet, magically.
Explosive emotions 
dynamite through my mind 
as we meld together
powerless 
I become putty in your hands
and you play purposely 
mastering your art
knowing it’s your attention 
to detail that matters
in loving me.

Remind Me

Remind me when I forget, of all the things you have done for me.
Living and loving so carefree.  Remind me when I get upset, you would
hold my body so tenderly, settting my heart and soul free.
Remind me that a love like yours will never be.

Remind me of all the great times we shared, you giving me all the love I
need, and we both helping each other to succeed.  Remind me of all the good
in you, so I will know your love is true, then I will know what to do, and that is
to keep on loving you.

INCOMPLETE by Collice Rodrigues

Even though you sit so close to me
Seems together happy we could never be
As hard I try to get you close
I get pricked by the thorn of the stem of a rose

Your tear drop feels like a thousand pins
I’d rather burn to ashes for my countless sins
You’re a Lily on the water, to get you I try
But as soon as I come close, the pond runs dry

Try as much I would never understand
The pain you feel as i leave your hand
I want to tell you that every moment I miss
The love that we had at the time of our first kiss

I hope that someday will surely come
When our love will every strife overcome
I hope that someday our hearts will surely meet
Till then like the crescent moon I’ll remain incomplete

Secretly Obsessed

Obsessed with the thought of you
wondering if it's only me or
if you sometimes remember the sweet things you've said
and if you meant them how I took them
or if I'm just obsessed with what's in your head

Obsessed with your very sentences
Every response I take personal
I know it's selfishness
Have you not noticed my eyes?
They hold secrets that only you can unlock
if you'd just take time to fill the thick juices of my pride
It's just boiling with lust, passion, trust and distrust
and other things I obsess over so much

I find myself writing to free myself from this prison I've created
where only you and I reside
I become confused about what I'm really feeling inside and I 
try to rid the thoughts that are highly debated as false and I
begin to cry and
think of casting love spells so that the universe can deliver this affair
I know it's unfair
but I don't care

I'm obsessed with what hasn't happened between us
I'm obsessed with your heart and that the fact that 
I don't think you've even noticed my selfish innuendos 
and secret undertones that blatantly express my lust
Or maybe you have and you calmly remain in resistance of distrust 
If you could only read my mind by simply touching my fingertips,
I'm sure I'd catch you out the corner of my eye biting your bottom lip
I'm obsessed with the passion and thoughts I think you have
Obsessing over an experience that I may never have....

Sleepless Nights

I lie beside you
Trying to keep still
Yet…this need is eating away at me
I sigh
Sure that my desire
Is working its way out of my body
Glowing out through my pores
I’m sure it will hover over you
And entice you with it’s aura
Pulling you awake…
And I wait….
The minutes drag on
My thoughts consumed
By images that sear into my flesh
What could be….

I can’t quench the fire
Sleep is impossible
Not now
“Wake up!” My mind shouts
Yet my lips are sealed
My breath comes in muted gasps
“Please…wake up”

“Selfish, selfish!”
My mind cries
“Let him sleep
It’s been a hard day
He needs his rest.”
I acquiesce

I toss and turn
In my mind I converse with you
“It’s been awhile
Surely…you want it too
I don’t know what to do!
How can I sleep 
When I desperately want you?”

A movement on your side
I hold my breath
Hoping it’s true
The craving that will not sleep
Forces me to speak...

“Touch me!”
My most sultry voice
Breaks the stillness of the night
Your heavy breathing is stilled
I feel an awakening
Emboldened
I guide your hand 
To my waiting breasts
Which I’ve bared for some time
In readiness
In anticipation
Waiting to bring me pleasure...

You pull me to you
And your lips close over them in turn
Making all my dreams come true

The open window carries out the sound
Of our frenzied sleeplessness
My every womanly sense 
Is taut….alive
Wanting
Needing
Demanding
Pleasing
Energy born out of insomnia’s rage
I blaze through these moments...

Satiated…I sigh
The tenseness wanes
My body goes lax
My eyelids heavy
As a plant a kiss on your lips
I slip
I slid
Into that land
Of sleepful bliss.

Beg

Let me express my feelings
Let me tell you a true tale
So, my husband has a "gift"
One I can't quite tell

He has his sly fox ways
Of getting what he wants
For if it isn't his way
His ways are full of taunts

He begs and begs and pleads
Honey, baby, dear
I want to hold you close tonight
I want to feel you near

Sometimes I say ok
But others it's too hot
But before the night is over
I end up in his spot

How is that he could argue
with me after such a night
Over a piece of paper
That was strictly in HIS sight

I know he has bad days
Trust me, I have mine too
I guess he can make it up to me
"Somehow" we'll make it through

My Heart


My heart is wound around your heart.
Mine is sustained by the beat of yours every day.
My dreams are wrapped around your dreams,
As I find peace in your arms and ways.

My vision is colored in life’s beauty
And you were the one to show it to me.
My happiness grew out of the knowledge
Of the life you built with me.

You taught me how to love this world 
Amid all the tragedies that befall a life.
And you taught me to find God’s way
When he brought you, my soul mate, into my life.

I Can See

I seen a man
I seen a man
Bearing the weight of his yore problems in life
No tears wept, he left the emotions to his wife
I seen a man
Daring to proceed in front of crowds and be his own person 
Discovering the independence of his character in confusion
I seen a man
Touch not, he could not feel
Speak not, his mouth was sealed
Hear not, no one can listen to his mind
Taste not, the insipid peels of lime
I seen a man
In his wild days, love, would be thrown out there
Following an untraced path, set in air
Hate would bubble within
But it would not erupt, only applause... Fading
His story would confuse the young, puzzle the old
This is just the introduction untold
I seen a man
Imaged in black and white
I seen a man
But I am blind
I seen a man
I seen a man

The Union

Theres a reason why you are together,my dears
Possibly brought to one another by chemistry
But
I hope it was pure devoted love that brought you here
And 
Made you want to spend the rest of your years
Your better half
The better part of you
The missing piece
The one who makes you, the complete you
An angel
A gift from heaven above
Your very best friend,
The one that shows you so much love
Two kindred spirits drawn together from past lives
Some may call it fate, my dears 
But as for my love and me
I call it a miracle brought on by destiny

BEND ME TOWARDS DAYBREAK

Blanket us with fantasy and carnal words, enfold us in binds of desire, Come closer, whisper of wants eternal. I’m your changeling, no longer attired by modesty. Kiss me into the quick then set afire all these girlish greens, Let my soul perspire, my skin flicker, Let lips scandalize unlaced bridal planes. My new world, I taste a map on your tongue, But your hands are home, open, welcoming. Master, slave, both united and undone, I crave, how I crave this soft becoming. Tonight caresses, makes no rough demands, so bend me towards daybreak, my husband.
*Inspired by Klimt's painting "the Kiss" **This is a modern sonnet

Love To My Husband

I am drawn to you like
The stars to the midnight skies
The Earth to the burning sun
Water to thirsting flowers

I am comfortable with you like
An old pair of boots
A faded pair of jeans
My favorite sweater and scarf

I am at peace with you like
Sitting in a boat in the middle of a lake
Taking a walk in silence in the country
Listening to rain drops fall in the dark of night

I am alive with you
Like the laughter that is uncontrollable
The heart that goes thump, thump, thump
Running through wildflowers in the wilderness

Every ounce of my being
Mind, body and soul are riveted by you
I am alive with you, free with you,
comfortable with you I love you

My daughter, my Queen

My daughter, my Queen
as Solomon said, you are above
the crown on my head
from rubble and stone
gates for a throne
Queen, daughter, Queen
mysterious home 
of pride and lust
forgive me intrust
not what man will give
but take what you must
Power you wield
no doubt in my vein
the blood that is cold 
in warmth you will claim
what is your position
with faith as a seed
man whose fruition
is boasting to bleed
my Queen my throne
thorn in my head
blessed of water
ancient we shed
blackened cough
scares in the skin
Queen have you paid 
too much for a sin
remember the garden
fruit of the sun
you offered me there
a kingdom undone
naked your breast
no temple of shame
I took of your fruit
gave you my name
Queen prophetic
knowing us so
Why you embrace
our invisible soul
sure, God willed
or something the same
man of the dust
woman the rain
Queen of a temple
so Godless, until 
Queen, oh my daughter
your blossom would heal

You Haven't Left

You haven’t left my heart
You haven’t left my mind
I’m just trying
To give you some time
Something happened in your life
You don’t care to explain
Or just can’t talk about
Until you feel the time is right
It’s o.k. my friend
I can understand
Just don’t think of my silence
As coming from an uncaring heart
For I would freely give
All that I’ve got and am
To be by your side
To be your confidant
For you mean much more to me
Than a simple hello
Or kiss in the night
You’re the very hope
That brings light into everyday
And I’ll be there for you
In any way that you allow
You’re not just a hand to be held
A touch to be felt
Or a pleasure conquered 
You’re the very hope
Of what life could be
Were I to be the one
To win your heart
So while you take this walk
Know it doesn’t have to be
Or really isn’t alone
For you haven’t left my heart
You haven’t left my mind
And should you need or care to reach
My hand is always here

My Angel Love

Love is giving of oneself, without any goal in return.
Love is a feeling; you get of fulfilling their needs.
Love is inside, never requiring an answer from other.
True love is feeling abandoned, after a tough quarrel.
Missing, but still longing, for a touch or a tender kiss.
Knowing the question, that our love will continue,
Each day, though we are different entities of earth.
Our togetherness grows, evolving into forever.
Our minds separate, but hearts bonded in richness.
Our souls surrender to the passion, we no longer miss.
Not relying on sexual, but sensual knowing our way,
Physical union, a magical dimension we have shared.
However, each day our hands clasp, satisfies my senses
Your scent of sensual purity, my temple of true bliss,
Even the minuet, we share at times delivers elation.
Each hour that passes, I deem you are my love Angel.
That has entered my life, to create peace in my soul.

THE FORTRESS OF LOVE

THE FORTRESS OF LOVE


Every marriage has its bumps in the road
And they can pop up at any time.
We must learn to navigate them safely 
With fairness, faith and open mind.

No matter how far in your marriage you’ve gone
The highway of love has its rules.
The excitement of sex, trust and affection
Never tolerates self-serving fools.

They say marriages are made in heaven,
But so are tornadoes, lighting and thunder.
Cold hearts and hot heads never solve anything
They just destroy what we love by blunder.

 Boredom, frustration, irritations and anger
 Douse the spark between you and your mate.
 More of the same fails to feed love’s flame
 Till you wake up to find it’s too late

Human touch sustains the release of endorphins
For both the giver and receiver.
Never be afraid to hug your partner.
For the language of touch is a reliever.

Always remember to support your spouse
When times of dilemma arise.
The fortress of love will sustain your marriage 
If you speak less and listen more, you’re wise.

By Tom Zart

My Love

Our Love was a young Love
That was said would never last
From 'Nam through Bush
We've stood the test of time

It may not be that hot, steamy, 
lustful Love we once shared
But it's a steady compassionate,
respectful, reverence we share

We're still crazy about each other
It's oh' so plain to see
By the way we bicker and fight
all too frequently

Shall we say, We've both gotten 
the better part of each others' lives
Thank Heaven for Miracles 
we've made it thus far

It still gives me a thrill to see 
that sparkle in his eye
From across a crowded room
He'll attempt to turn me on

I just hope he never loses 
that love and desire 
that he has for me
We're devoted to each other
It was our destiny

"WHERE IS THE LOVE???"

Where is the love?
That's heavenly sent from above
Where is the love?
That lets you know how often you're thought of
Where is the love?
That erase all of the doubts because you're so 
sure what your mate or spouse is about
Where is the love?
That shows how much you care
Where is the love?
With all the hopes,and dreams we both share
Where is the love?
That just continues to grow,and is so real 
everyone should know
Where is the love?
That very few people have,and so many others want
It's because they're not committed is the reason they don't
Where is the love?
That's like no other seen or experienced before,
that keeps you wanting more
Where is the love?
That's no pretend,and so very hard to find
Where is the love? 
IT'S IN MY HEART,AND DIRECTED BY MY MIND!!!"

"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.

MATTER OF TIME

Baby I know you miss
The way I kiss you head to toe
Caressing you and pressing you
So close so you would know
That if there came a moment
You and I would be apart
We’ll feel that same connection
Through the beating of our hearts
Like a hummingbird in autumn
Hovering on satin wings
We dance in life’s sweet nectar
And rejoice in all it brings
Because what we share is special 
And will stand the test of time
A pact we made together
That will last until we die
So if you start to falter
Find your strength in these few lines
Because the shortest distance between us
Is really just a matter of time….

Labors Of Love

I've tried to be patient
I've tried to understand
I've stood by your side
Because you're my man

I've put up with your lies
I've put up with your ways
I've heard many stories
And yet I stay

I've given my love
I've given my trust
I've given my all
For what, your lust?

I've opened my arms
I've opened my life
I've opened those doors
To include any strife

I put up with much
I get very little
I give all I can
This is my acquittal

So if you're not happy
And you have to question my love
You better take note
These are the labors of love!

For Me

She whispers to me, 
Says things this man never
Heard ever before.
She tells me and shows me
The contents of her heart.

She smiles, 
Just to think of me.
She truly is,
But treats me
Like, beautiful art.

She sings songs to me
About love and life 
And of wonderful dreams.

She is a gift,
Truly due to innate beauty
Which flows like 
The most beautiful of streams.

She shares with me,
All that she wishes
Me to see,
But she cannot hide
The real person, inside.

In effect,
She shares completely
And feels, with me,
There’s no reason to hide.

Watercolor love

Like watercolor pictures left out in the rain
Our colors have mingled,yet the originals still remain.
Two watercolor paintings without frames,
Became one picture over time,
Yet two of us still there.
Our colors blended naturally,
Now all the hues are shared.
I love your colors intermixed with mine:
Together they have made a new design.
A Watercolor picture painted by the rain,
We may go, but our Watercolor Love will still remain

Cheater's Chair

A destructive dance indeed,
betwixt the two we bleed.
A bellowing, bloody abate,
this stale, seductive state.

Simple, senseless steeds,
jealous fires feed.
Perjuring petty plights,
demons do delight.

A crimson, cheaters chair,
awful angers air.
No trust, truth or taste,
wallowed wantons waste.

Envious, eager eyes,
rejoicing a wrathful rise.
Coveting, careless couth, 
yesteryear's eager  youth.

Give Praise To God

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

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

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

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

One Day

As I sip on aged Cognac
swirling in circular sadness,
contained within cup made
of broken stained glass memories,
I witness.

Witnessing Cloud 9’s silhouette
surround this glued enigma.

Lionel Ritchie was the rock for this moment’s bliss.

“Truly in love,
with
you.”

Emanating across cathedral uncertainty,
breaking its glass.

This was a celebration of priceless Silver.
A currency only earned by the Philanthropists of Love.

Creating justifiable fantasies
with attainable dreams.

It was amor, maintained.

While I sip on Cognac’s remnants,
mixed with retina’s loneliness,
dripping
downwards
with smile craving soul-pack solution,
I exhale.

In “Deep Sigh” Symphony: No. 9.

With my ventricle chambers
kissing subconscious on forehead,
in preparation for dream come true.

Because one day,
that will
be
me.

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!

deadly kiss

I hungered for his kiss
My lips leaned forward, into his
Then passion exploded everywhere
He gripped my hips, I gripped his hair
Body to body, we became entwined
Flames raged from his mouth to mine 
Desire for more consumed our thoughts
Till grips of steel pulled me off -

“WHAT ARE YOU DOING?” My husband raged
I staggered back, red flooding my face
“WE’RE OVER” he said.  10 seconds of bliss, 
The death of our relationship

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

Whispers upon a morning breeze

Whispers upon a morning breeze
gently caresses the awakening flowers
and leaves on the flourishing trees
just like a lovers warm soft tender touch
after a night of passion
and making love
now just smouldering embers
between two kindred hearts
who discovered the true meaning
of giving sharing and caring
and beauty
in the sanctity 
of sacred eternal love.

Last Kiss

Open your eyes to the ever turning skies 
I want to here with me through the night 
My heart yearns into your soul 
Burning as if newly lit coal 
I bravely submerg the embers 
That the time I have can be spent with you 
And I remember each kiss every moment 
I was caught in your love that for just this day I remember 
So what happened was a chance for your love 
A time that I kept in a locket tied with a kiss 
 I wanted you to feel, to love, to slumber 
And to awake in my arms with that times kept bliss 
I lay silient in an umber

HAVE YOU EVER DANCED WITH YOURSELF

Have you ever danced with yourself?
I have.  I did it tonight.
Somehow, it just felt right,
Although it was dark and it was late.

I checked the weather forecast of my heart
And the climate of my soul marks: “Happiness”,
An unbelievable sense of joyfulness
That will stay within me, even if we are apart.

Because we were made for each other,
“apart” simply means “I’ll be right back”.
It’d be silly to turn our backs
On this great combination of lovers.

Lovers in love, now and forever.
Sharing dreams and goals that we know will come true,
Since anything is possible if I am with you,
Sharing a life in which fate brought us together.

Have you ever smiled at yourself?
I have.  I did it tonight.
And it feels perfectly right
To be yours and to enjoy being under your spell.

 
(What I’m really saying is: I’m in love…
 What I’m really saying is: I love you.)

Sleep Peacefully My Love

Rest soundly my love, and peacefully too,
Know that through the night's hours I will be here with you.
May sweet dreams invade your head,
As you sleep soundly in our marriage bed.
Whilst you dream,
Dream of only me.
Dream of the soft hands that hold you close,
Let your world be colored by the tints of rose...
And hear only soft whispers spoken softly in prose.
But if you should begin to quake in fright,
Be reassured that I shall be here to hold you tight.
I shall move my lips across your cheek,
And dry the tears that doth streak.
Hopefully you will sleep peacefully with me here,
Just knowing I am near.
So sleep easily and know that when you open your beautiful eyes,
I will be here with you, our hands and hearts forever entwined.

4 Jon On Our 22nd Wedding Anniversary

Your love is
quite sensational –

Your laughter tastes
    like spring-time rain

Your tears smell
    like sweet lemon flower petals

Your voice looks
    so 
    deeply 
    majestic

Your heart sounds
    like exquisite violin and harp concertos

And your eyes!

Your eyes feel
    like early autumn sunset’s amber-gold lengthening glow

Oh, my love, your love
is entirely, completely,
embracingly

Sen-sational!

The Perfect Love

Your love is perfect as can be, because you really satisfy me.  I love the
way you say my name, You make me feel like i am in the hall of fame.  Your
loving arms wrapped around my waist is such a sweet, caring embrace.

Your love is perfect as can be, especially when your face is touching mines,
it sends chills down my spine.  The way in which you touch my hand let me
know that you understand.  Your love is perfect as can be.

There is no other love out there for me, I love the way you talk to me. setting my
heart and soul free.  There can never be another love like you, who is perfect in
everything he do!  I dont not want to ever lose you.

My Future Generation

I can act insane
But DO NOT 
Make me feel worthless

I belong in God’s family
He will bless my future generation

Don’t punish me for
Being myself –
Don’t envy my glee 

I can act like an
Adult, but I’d 
Prefer to have joy…

Not stress…
That piles upon us in our 
Everyday lives

Being childlike is

A rare beauty – 

No one prizes it…

No one came across it…

In this lifetime…

I can laugh all day
I can make you smile
If you’d accept my 
Childlike dreams of mine
Don’t treat me like a sick swine

Renew my young heart
Give me the ability 
To kill the old man…

I have my place in God’s family
He’ll be adored and glorified 
We’ll exchange prayers and hugs  
By my future generation

I beg of you – 
Don’t kill my childlike mentality
I’ll behave myself…
I’m positively sure that I’ll make you happy

I’ll still have pieces of a child in me

And pass it on to my future generation…

A Magnificent Moment

A five tiered chocolate cake with stars and fontain
cascading rose petals and bottles of champagne
her princess lined gown laced with a metallic accent
embellished with satin rhinestones much to her content

Heavenly white bows at the end every pew,
such breathtaking moment from a spectacular ocean view
A twenty foot high ceiling with crystal chandeliers
Soft sensual music whispers in the air

She took her grand march down the petal marked aisle
At the end of the runner her husband with a smile
Subdued by her beauty the room went still
A fairytale wedding she was about to fulfill

Upon her finger he place a gorgeous ring,
and vowed his love for her as never-ending
Elated inside as tears lined her eyes
Deep in her stomach were butterflies

A union made between a husband and wife
An everlasting promise to a happy life
Along the ground was a silky white trail
Her piercing green eyes he slowly unveiled

Upon her lips he placed a kiss
A moment filled with beauty and bliss
The wedding part began to swoon
A joyful bond in the month of June

You

I caress you in my arms
and your beauty alarms me...
your soft skin disarms me
and your musical voice charms me...
I lose myself within you
everytime our lovemaking begins a new...
And I knew in that moment
that I had to vent my sentiments
I love you and my essence would plead too
that I drink you, I eat you, and I breath you
...I need you!...

A Very Inviting Temptation

A Very Inviting Temptation! I remember of a particular situation. I was offered a very "inviting" temptation. The situation I was in... I didn't belong! And lost any sense of "right and wrong." At first... I felt no guilt or shame. And brought embarrassment to my family's name. I tried to explain this to my wife and kids. I heard; "Dad... please... no more fibs!" The Godly principles were "tossed to the side," As the sin inside caused arrogance and pride. Soon, all in my life that truly mattered... Was gone! My life was empty and shattered! I was sorry for all of the problems I caused! This time... I took a moment to pause. I cried to God to rescue me from my sin. I confessed! Would God help me once again? I read in the Bible of Jesus’ grace and love! This time the help I needed had to come from above! I asked him for a fresh and brand new start. He removed the stain from a broken heart. He restored to me the joy I once had. I'm so blessed! Jesus has made me glad! Jesus is the reason I'm here today! I LOVE HIM more than words can say! By Jim Pemberton

Witnesses To Sinners



I can't hear the words as they come from my mouth
I can't hear the screams as they work their way out
As I write all is seen is a blur and blank moment and
Once recovered sensed the words were written,not 
Even a look to see what was written only to know it
Was there.Sleepless night,taunt  filled faces horde my
Dreams.Have this made me fall so low no longer am I
Am I able to stand on my own to feet.How many times 
Will you make me cry before claiming only to being a 
Witness in a crime,your crime. Putting on that face
Working the crowds with amazing easily,how I hate you
Yes all the thing I think about revolve around you.
How many times have I witness myself wound my self
With your blade? As though under a spell doing as order
Without a cry to the world what made me so diligent ?
But no longer can you be a witness,No longer can I be 
A witness to these crimes that been committed.Be us both
Sinners be us both lovers be that we both be cursed 
We shall witness our sins become whole and the love in
Which we share spread further and further like the flames 
Of hades. May there be peace for sinners in the next world.
We are both witnesses and at the same time 
We are both sinners one day to become consumed by our
Own darkness how far will we fall until that moment comes?
May we be good may we be bad may we fall may we live may 
May we die or carry on we are the Witnesses We are the Sinners
To this world and the next.

On This Day

I've waited this day to come
For you and I become one
Every day that has passed
I wish that we could last
 
After days,months and years we build together
Here we are now to be forever
I know that this is God's will
And I trust God for everything
 
On this day..
I'll promise to love you always
to hold your hand
No matter what we may face in future
 
On this day..
I'll promise that I'll be with you until we grow old
And You are better than anything you can compare in this world.

This Thing Called Love

Twas just the greatest treasure,

that Mankind has ever found. 

Yet its bounty is not hidden inside a chest, 

nor buried underground, 

It won,t be all piled up and shining in a mound, 

You won,t need a key to unlock it, 

in fact it,s not even bound, 

Yet it can be found, 

by just about anyone, 

from a panda to a hound, 

You do not need x-ray eyesight, 

nor ears that hear the slightest sound, 

No, this thing-a-ling almost anyone can bring, 

In fact its all around. 

It comes from deep, deep, deep inside, 

with blessings from the Man above, 

It comes sometimes in an instant, 

sometimes it nestles in like a glove, 

What is this one thing, 

that makes you want to sing, 

and live peacefully like the dove, 

It introduces all Queens to her King, 

Why of course, 

this thing is Love.

HONEYMOON CAPERS

~Honeymoon Capers~ The big day arrived and we couldn’t wait We were old fashioned and there was no horse after the gate The wedding went off with nary a hitch A few gate crashers but we didn’t b i t c h . * The honeymoon night, boy what a thrill The emotions it caused are with us both still While showering in a hotel bathroom suite My new husband dare ask if he could now peek. Into the shower he joined me all of a quiver The sparks were shooting hither and thither I was covered in shampoo from washing my hair I tried to squeeze past him the water to share. No thought was there yet of making love in the shower We were getting to know more of each other hour by hour My new husband’s passion was obviously aroused As I stuck me head under the shower to be doused. It was then that I did slip and fall backwards with a yell Taking the shower the curtains and my husbands passion as well All I remember as my head hit the loo Was an agonised yell from my husband brand new. As my legs lifted high not for love it would seem But I kicked him in the place where he kept his lovers dreams. I woke up on the floor my head splitting in two My husband at the side of me groaning by the loo Water was pouring from the shower wall Neither could move nor dare make a call He said he knew that in marriage there could be some hard knocks But it was taking the cake to get kicked in the rocks. The toilet was cracked just like my head The bathroom was flooded we had to stay in bed Our honeymoon night our first night together Is one we will remember for ever and ever.

The Flames Of Love

I feel the flames of love ignite, Burning me to my very core, As it blazes on into the night; Deep in my heart I know it’s right, I’ve never felt like this before; I feel the flames of love ignite; Sweat glistens in the fire light, And my senses tingle for what’s in store, As it blazes on into the night; Your kisses on my skin, alight; It leaves me begging for more and more, I feel the flames of love ignite; My passion drives me to my height, And in fervor we explore, As it blazes on into the night; We can’t hold back now anymore, In unison our bodies soar; I feel the flames of love ignite, As it blazes on into the night.

A New Beginning

Here’s to new beginnings,
And what this year will bring;
A fun filled year of passion,
And our baby in the spring;

A new life in our arms,
Our prospects look so bright;
Just thinking of our future,
Fills me with delight;

I can not wait to hold him,
And watch the wonder in his eyes;
As each an every second,
Fills him with surprise;

He is the new beginning,
To the life that we’ve begun;
And a happy home in which,
We welcome our new son.

No Measure of Time

Unspoken words linger in the depth of souls
Preserved with reverence… a moment to unfold
In classic silence, weary eyes stare long, hard; deep 
Hands gently pairing, find each other, like ripe fruit to reap

Mellow warm embrace, the misty eyes and hearts race in time
 Forever to savor, this moment sublime
When love need speak no word to amplify its pleasure
And true love bears time no measure

Soon, furrows will lie upon your brow; fine silver strands highlight my curls
Yet, for always, we will forever be… this boy and girl!

Together Writing A Dare - collab

Stolen time together where only fireflies see...
We cuddle up close and land where we can be free...
Up high in the road we sit with clouds as our walls...
And with a beautiful background of rainbow falls...
A king size playground with fruit in each corner...
Our love showers over us with no borders...
We dip our lips into it for a taste and savor its sweetness...
And with deep kisses that trance and fly endless...
Like a mango wrestling a peach, the trail from it sticks...
Now covered in juices of love we swallow while the clock ticks...
And with drenched sugar coated fingers we drown for awhile...
Only to rise back up for another day in our own loving style...

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.

Touched By Your Flame

Tears shall never wash away our moments of passion.
Our bond, whispered into Heaven in Angelic fashion.
Unity between our mortal bodies is loving grace.
Courage that binds us shines in our face.
Hearts that are captured true are forever.
Eyes that glisten like ours could not sever.
Deliver constant affections, oh so clever,

Bring the wine of our souls to never end.
You and I are bound with pleasure to spend.

Years shall pass but our ardor will not grow old.
Our cravings may change, though continue bold.
Universal flames that we spark, shall endure.
Remembered beyond our existence so pure,

Fulfilled and destined to be known forevermore.
Listen to the crackling that warms our core.
Angels are speaking to us, giving blessings.
Many shall be jealous, with great digressing’s.
Everyone now knows of our love, it is evermore.

Sexy Kiss

We share a look from across the room and I saunter into your arms,
No matter how hard I try to defy, I can never resist your charms;

You slip a hand behind my head and drag me into your kiss,
You tantalize my senses as I lose myself to bliss;

Desire takes over my body as you take my breath away,
We stand in utter silence, we’ve nothing left to say;

There is an overpowering smell of whiskey and cheap perfume,
But locked in a passionate kiss, we’re alone in the crowded room;

Your kisses taste so potent, I savor the exotic flavor of you,
Your intoxicating to my senses, like the sweetest morning dew;

Wrapped in a fervent embrace, our bodies meld to form one;
I lose myself to you and it’s only just begun...

If It Wasn't For You

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

Romancing You

Your like a rock, hard and steady, I'm soft like a flower against your skin, you hold my heart, I know I hold yours, I feel the beat of it from within. I touch your lips, trace their lines, you hold my eyes, as you trace mine, we've lost all track of time, as love unfolds between us, so divine. What gentle love we have shared, husband and wife, we both have cared, nothing more than heavenly bliss on earth, between us a deeper love is birthed. Who could stop the flow of time, who could stop this surge of mine, of love that came so softly seeded, when I first discovered it was you I needed.

' Intimacy In Verse (1) ... '

Intimacy – To Put It Delicately,
Is Closer Than Flesh Can Form
And Stronger Than The Desire
… It Bravely Springs Forth From

Intimacy – Shuts Door
On Separated and Shy
Intimacy Knows Who You Are …
And Doesn’t Need To Ask Why

Intimacy – Is More than A Touch,
Sight, Smell, Taste Or Words Heard
Intimacy – Vanquishes Alone
 Unknown and Scared

Intimacy – Is A Certainty
And So Beautiful To Have and Hold
Intimacy – Is Secrecy Shared
Between Love and In-Love Souls

          … Intimacy …

Missing You

Missing you is like feelings of thee morning dew. The very first time I glanced at you, something like a widow a woman that husband has died. Wishing we had just a little more time. Wishful thinking believing everything you ever said was true shows how bad I want to be with you. Reminiscing over here dwelling on the past, indicating a desire of admiration I grasp. Adoration and appreciation is what I feel for you, longing suffering missing and enduring the lost just to speak to you. From morning till midnight, sunset to sunrise moving into the afternoon time I’m missing you. Arousing emotional response in motion missing you is my religion. My system of belief, therefor you’re an apostle sent by Christ making me a flock of one in your missionary. Leaving me with anxiety and tension I stay missing. Impatient for your fulfillment, missing you is an addiction and psychological dependence. Needing to see you even for a minute, in a recession I remain unchanged retain missing you.

Whatever You Say, Dear

It's Friday! And it’s “Girls’ Night Out"! His favorite dinner and wine we shared! We give each other a little bit space, at least, once every other week Any given night, always a special treat, we may choose to cuddle instead Whatever desires the other may have, each makes sure to prioritize That’s the routine in our love nest; it’s just how we sail this boat Dressed in stretched jeans; curves seemly more pronounced and I feel burning eyes upon me Yes, I know that look so very well, but tonight, that can’t go down To put him off, I attempt light conversation; to sort of change his unspoken suggestion I nonchalantly ask, “What game are you planning to watch, Love?" With a silent, hope, that craving eyes would deflect Deliberately, I avoid his intense stare, speaking loudly, a language I know too well Too late! In just two steps he’s all over me; and I melt like butter in the sun “Can’t you call? Say you’ll be a little late, hmm?” He whispers in my ear “No, Love, the last time I did that, we fell asleep, remember?” “Look, I’ll set the alarm, just one hour will do; I’m missing you already”. Like a kid, he begins to pout and guilt raps at my heart’s door Planting warm butterfly kisses the expanse of my neck Murmuring low, words he knows I love to hear And though I feign disinterest, persistent hands unrelenting “Will you call and tell her? Will you, or I’ll call if you like?” He may be unaware, though it’s hard to tell, as there are no secrets which I can maintain In my mind I’ve already begun to disrobe him; my favorite dance flats cast aside On the verge of giving in, I raise up my head to gaze those smoldering eyes In that instant, I’m captured; cornered, again His brilliant smile from lips so soft appears plastered on his chiseled face Fully aware he’s won like so many times before He picks up the phone, hits speed dial with one hand free; The other is wrapped snugly 'round my waist as I admire his one track mind “Hi Caitlin! Listen... …Yes, she’ll be late. Now, how'd you know?” And her laughter rings throughout cyber space as she's made a prudent guess “That’s fine, I just know!” She replied, still chuckling. “Ask her to call me before she leaves, will you?” “Oh sure! Whatever you say, dear.” ~*~

Mrs Hemorrhoid

You messed around 
and married a real 
"pain-in-the butt" man 

known throughout the land 
for ripping
burning 
completely deserting 
then leaving 
women hurting

his only claim to fame 
is over reacting 
and lacking class
a self-proclaimed pain in the ass
a crook with line 
and hook to cast 

things will never be the same
trade away your maiden name 
to Mrs. Hemorrhoid 
and wear his name with class.

Power of Your Love

To a Bride and Groom

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

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...

A soup to warm your soul

A soup so delightful
Yet to such a waste
All that cooking
Standing by the stove
Making sure the temperature was just right
Adding all the right spices
- A little salt and pepper, some lemon squeeze, just a hint of chili and a spoon full of love
Stirring carefully, making sure it didn't boil over
Humming your favorite tune while preparing
Personalized with all the ingredients you prefer

Poured it into you favorite bowl, the yellow one (your favorite color)
Served it to you with fresh basil and a kiss on your cheek

You smile and say:

"Thanx, but I'm not very hungry right now"

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.

Today is Our Day

Today we have nothing better to do
So let’s hit the road, Babe, going nowhere,
Let’s take a dirt road, just me and you,
We can put the top down and feel the wind in our hair,
It doesn’t matter where we end up as long as your there;

There is no place that I’d rather be,
The road stretches out for miles on end,
Let’s park by the river, just you and me,
And watch the water run around the bend,
There is no better way for our day to end!

So This Is Love

So this is love,
when I look upon my beloved sleeping contentedly, 
cooing like a dove,
a smile forms, memories flood,
growing closer with each passing year,
unaware of the changes ageing shows clear,
your beauty eternally imprinted upon my mind
imprinted throughout time

The only sadness comes when we must part,
if only for a short while,
soon to reunite for eternity,
to walk hand in hand 
as youths once again,
followed by a heavenly dove,
So this is love

I Love To Cry

When you dont look at me,
With other things to do when you are busy.
You seldom turn around and smile
You are with me, but just for a while.

I think of what will make me sad
Of things which ever make me mad.
And isolate myself away from you,
Wandering around what next to do.

And a long wait, a peek from the corner of my eye;
Feeling the pain grow, as to forget I try.
And then when it is already too late,
I notice your concerned stride past the gate.

You cuddle me, like a baby you hold,
Trying to reassure your love pre-told.
To get you near me, look at me, I could die;
And that is one reason I love to cry...

A Wonderous Fate

Birthed through Mother's most wondrous state
into the arms of love and fate
to so rejoice to be sensate,
O God has opened Heaven's gate. 

I grew in loves mysteries
found my husband and grew to see
such majesty within my mate,
O God has opened Heaven's gate. 

My husband gave to me a son
and through the gate, he too did come.
Child grew to man and met his mate,
O God has opened Heaven's gate. 

I'll not begrudge or be ingrate
or ask for more, a child's dictate,
I am content to live sensate
O God has opened Heaven's gate.


*life is heaven if you choice to see it as such.

SUMMER:WINTER

For the seasons bring thoughts to my young mind, 
The reaction to each accordingly, 
Your thought brings one season in mind to find, 
I smile, but then I cry, suprisingly. 

The summer, one season so intense, 
Emotions rush when I hear your sweet voice, 
Sometimes the thought does not make any sense, 
But having you to hold is the best choice. 

Even so, it's not the same when you're gone, 
Winter creeps in my mind like the darkness. 
The coldness I get when am all alone, 
I can't be without you, I must confess. 

My love, knight in shining armor, my king; 
I wake up everyday, glad to be your queen.

Wedding Night Bliss

With a sleepy smile she whispered
“I said I do today”
Spoken words with heart and mind
Lust and desire made clear
“Boy, how you grind my gears
and still arouse such wantom awakening
to parts of my body previously only stirred…”
My mind turns to the number of times
we have all but made love with our clothes on
Innocently touching, holding, wanting
Preserving something so very special
ready for the day that I can take you
Knowing you are my bride, belong to me,
are part of me, for now we are one
Together every breath, movement, thought
melds together in heated entangled embrace
My hands search for the warmth of your touch
the silky softness of your satin smooth skin
Item by item crumpled garments fold to floor
as I slowly admire your naked womanly form
for first time 
watching waiting wondering
yet knowing you are as ready as I as you smile
I scoop you into my arms,
lie you on our bed
Slowly we make our way into Paradise,
lost to ourselves
Found in our desires for one another
Destination – satisfaction
We arrive as husband and wife

First star to your empty Night

I want a love that
fills my veins like
liquid fireworks
sweet like sugar and 
cinnamon
strong enough to knock
me off my feet, like a 
mighty ocean wave, yet
gentle and magic
like the forgotten lyrics
to a nursery rhyme

I want our spirits to soar
into a bright forever
like two yellow balloons
released, by the
tiny, sticky hands
of a little child
I want, my man, to know
my true self
like the words to a favorite
song on the radio
to feel me, all that is me
rhythm bound from a beaten
street drummer

I wish to be a bright guiding light
as the first star
to your empty night
A familiar love, as
traveling back to a childhood spot
your first love kiss...
first bully fight...
first playground crush lost...

I want a love
that encompasses
my senses, envelopes me
from nothing, like the
steam from my rose petal tea
filling my pores
leaving me
rejuvenated and refreshed

A love, whom steals my worries
as a thief in the night
and greets me with doe- eyed
kisses, once rounding
up a fight

I speak these words into the 
universe, to send me a love
to call my own
what path will my soul mate
travel to me, mysterious 
mystical journey unknown

First Love

In the instant of a second, I just always knew.
A flickering flame I caught in the eye of you.
 
A feather in the wind and on my last breath,
A deeper breeze of Sunsets at night’s death,
 
A Star beams on the Moon and lights up the sky.
I am in a wonderland amazed at just how high.
 
Lo and behold, it comes to me at the end.
My first love left me His message to send.
 
Look up and you shall see me at night,
Look down and I am out truly of sight.
 
Hold on to the very end for I am near,
It’s my voice in your heart you’ll hear.
 
Take one breath or even two,
I am the one always with you!

Through A Prison Glass

You came unexpectedly, and i was surprised,
you smiled and placed your hand on the glass and cried.
I leaned my head against the glass and told you i am sorry,
i whisper through the phone line, ill start a new story.

You knew i was innocent but you still didn't believe me,
the only person i thought that would stay by my side but you couldn't be. 
Mom standing by your side and not wanting to talk,
i got really upset that you came at all cause i didn't want to see you walk. 

I needed you, when i was in need,
i was there for you when ever you didn't want to bleed.
I loved you and i cherished you with all my heart,
but before you left your words hit me like a really sharp dart.

You said i failed you,
you cried to me and i knew it was true.
But i needed you to understand me,
but you went your way and upset me.

The glass is now empty and i cant find you even with the fact that I'm out,
i tell you i love you but all you do is shout. 
I've lost you for good this time, 
so i think i have to do one more crime.

One More Time

Give me one more time to prove my love to you, I want you to know it is true.
Give me one more time to sacrifice my love and time, I have only you on my mind.
Give me one more time before you shut the door and call out, you do not love me
anymore.  

Give me one more time to show you that we can make it last, if only you learn to
forgive and forget about the past.

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

It saves me

which my soul will never meet.

Up in a forest tree
hunters scattering in threes

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.

A place we can go hide closely 
cuddled cave, against the 
Closure of your misled arms,
Wrapped tightly around a spin
Of Saturn's that ring me.

As Pluto's fire, breaks guard

For Your Eyes Only

They said we'd never make it
They said we would not last
And though we've had it rough, dear 
For us, the dye's long been cast

They don't seem to understand it
They don't have a single clue
That though we have our problems
There is a magic glue

A glue so rare and precious
A glue so exquisitely fine
Forged out of our young love
Making you forever mine

We have a precious daughter
She is the forever bond
The union of our souls is she
Of whom you are so fond

Today as I watched you sleep
I longed to kiss you awake
With passion dipped words to say:
“Wake up, sweet love let’s make!”

And so I teased and I pleased you
Laid your head on my bare breast
I smiled at myself for I knew
That would bring on all the rest

I was not disappointed
You made me scream and sign
With techniques tried and true
You took me to the heavens high

And now you're getting older
You're climbing the ladder of time
Remember when you're old and grey
I'll still think you are sublime!

A Little Background:

I wrote this some time ago for my husband, but I added to it to post it today. I met him when we were twelve, he asked me out at 14, I accepted him at 17 when I came back from the States, I married him at 26.  We were neighbors, but our families were rivals of sorts. Regular Montegues and Capulets. His parents threatened to disown him if he married me. He was willing to go through the risk. This explains the beginning of the poem. It's been twenty years now. We are still together. The Title of the poem, a song by Sheena Easton, was "Our SONG."

The Breathe of God

The breathe of God is in the touch of the wind.
The tears of God are in the rain.
The anger of God is in nature’s violent force.
And the love of God is in the eyes of the one you truly love.

Bring me a kiss with the gale force of your love,
As it swirls around me throughout this day.
Make it be the touch of that wind… that will bring us back again.
Let it wrap around our hearts to bind them in heavenly bliss…
Then bring your arms to surround me and bring us together again.
In the Church of Love let us meet… by the ocean of heavenly bliss.

HELP HER UP

written 2nd Aug 2013



This life is not as it should be
 pick up your wife, can't you see 

You're her husband, stand up!
 give her a reason, to again believe

She means 'everything'....to this family
 shutting the door leaving her totally... Alone

Do you actually know her at all...
 damaging her heart and soul, deep within it's cold

Loneliness consumes her, it's been so long
 it must be asked...do you still love her?

Are you willing to help her to her feet again?
 or shall you sit back and watch, as she see's the end

This is completely left for only you, her husband to declare
 how much does she really mean to you...do you still care?

Will you step up, or let her rot into total depression, you see it...
 Love and care, or death and dispirit

It's all up to you!
 Her loving husband, what will you do.....

Valentine Romance

Valentines day is always something special to me, I explained. 
So I planned a romantic evening and got ready for my campaign.
The children were at a sleepover with their favorite friends they adore.
So I met my hubby as he came in, accidentally tripping and making him hit the door.
Thank God his head is hard as he hit that, the nearby TV, but very little more.
I made Cherries Jubilee as a snack while he sat there with an ice pack to his head. 
But before I knew it, I’d knocked it over and almost burned down the house instead.
When he finally put the fire extinguisher away…
I got up and got some of the kids’ apple tarts I had made. 
He bit in deep and burned his mouth, declaring he wasn’t hungry and the pain would fade.
Next he decided to go upstairs, but I had put rose petals down everywhere in spades.
And yes you probably guessed it… he slipped and ended up needing a little aide.
At this he decided to take an aspirin and lay down upon the couch. OH  HHWell…
But I knew the rest needed to happen above, to totally create this romantic spell…
I had to get him to the candles and bubble bath, where my romantic dreams still dwelled. 
So I got out some scarves and danced toward him, tying up his hands before he fell.
He never knew what hit him as he was lassoed and gently bounced up the stairs.
I guess I wouldn’t have had to tie his feet… a few words would have done as well.
But you know me when I get going, my mind tends to lose a few brain cells…
He was flustered, exhausted and bruised when he got there, but he’s made of the right stuff.
Though as I took off the scarves, he flopped on the bed pulling the covers over his head kind of rough.
He said he loved me, but living with me could be kind of tough.
He said it was better to leave it to him, for the romantic endeavors and such.
He said he had reservations and play tickets in his shirt pocket for later on that night.
But what he needed now was some aspirin and a few moments of quiet respite. 
So with a sigh he started snoring, and my romantic dreams were momentarily crushed.
I dearly love the man you know. But, do you think maybe I tried too much?

A Box of Hope and Dreams

I keep my dreams and aspirations,
stored away neatly in this box.
Tied off with a pretty pink ribbon,
secured tightly with key and lock.

And every time I feel like a failure,
I open it, so I can again feel alive.
Arms of dreams tightly surround me,
giving me strength I need to survive.

I’ve hidden this box in a secret place,
where I’m the only who can see.
A beautiful box of hopes and dreams,
finely sewn with love at the seams.

This box is opened quite frequently,
especially when we’re apart –
this rhetorical box of memories,
in perfect synch with each beat of my heart

Soul Mates

Darn! The wind is back with a vengeance.
Its howling,
	making the trees and grasses become its instrument. 
Gusts to 40 mph they say; I believe it.

But the sky is so blue and the clouds are illuminated from within.
Today the wind is so strong that I can smell the pine scent from the mountains —
	from the mountains where his ashes swirl.

He lifts my hair and whirls it around my face, and in the scent on the wind
	I am awash with cleanness.
The tune he plays as he surrounds my body is one of memories, and greeting.

The wind slowly becomes more gentle;
	caressing now; touching me in a more loving way.
Exploring with long cool fingers, around, reaching under my clothing,
	becoming intimate.

Forfeiting his boldness, with a sigh he leaves on soft goodbyes.

Darn, the wind is gone.

If You Were

If you were a penny, I’d keep you in my front pocket every day.
I’d shine and cleanse you daily, washing all troubles and woes away.
If you were a diamond ring, on my finger is where you’d stay.
I’d shine the stone feverishly, parting all frets and worries astray.

If you were a novel, I’d place you at the very front of the shelf,
I’d tear out the pages of misery, and swallow the depression myself.
If you were as free as a butterfly, I’d cup you within my hands.
I’d whisper all my secrets, then release you from all commands.

If you were a painting, I’d pose you directly over so all could see,
I’d dust away the tears and guilt, inhaling the particles inside of me.
If you were a bronze statue, I would polish you until you shined.
I’d scour away the torment, and any melancholy I should find.

If you were a flower, I’d pluck the petals of bane from your life,
I’d water and feed you frequently, nourishing the roots of strife.
If you were an eagle, I’d admire your rare beauty from above,
I’d watch you slowly soar into the horizon, taking with you,
my heart, my soul and love.

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

I like your love

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

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

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

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

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…

Your kiss is wild; your touch makes my heart swoon.
Our bodies sway and connect upon the rise of the moon.
They dance wildly sending such pleasures to me and you.
You take me to the center of the universe without any clue.
Our glorious love is more magical then any orchestrated tune.
Navigations delight as we perform our sexual roles attune
Our lust captures the love we both share, they are many not few.

You my dear are the Goddess of my dreams and so much more.
I hold you closely and you remit to my desires of mortal flesh.
Our bond is mutual and all the Heavens open up for sure.
You take my destiny to a new height while renewing it fresh.
We are bound, captured, our carnal affections has become lore.
Voluptuous lover of mine lets continue while our souls mesh.

Boyfriend

This was not what I planed
It was never my intention
I went to see a concert with my friend
Along with his cute cousin

This is not something I’m used to
But I went to take you for a run
My amazement for you
Caught your attention

Yes I do know your name
I love you to death
You are my experimental gain
Relax, its human nature

It’s not what nice boys do
But we’re not all good
In fact we’re quite wicked
It’s hard to behave

Parents say that’s so wrong
Wrong to love someone
Someone who is gay
Gay is what I am

We'll be

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

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

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

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

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

Cinco De Mayo

 Packed a picnic for the middle of the night,
sandwiches,chocolet stawberrys , liqueur taste just right,
 Smoke a lil sumthin to make us feel so light,
My baby sister here, we can never feel so tight,
 One candle burning flickering just right,
Here with our loves, the moon shines so bight,

 We walk through the trails, to stretch our legs and feel the air,
we get so spooked we run back feeling fear,
 We laugh out loud to clear the air,
 Enjoy this time from here to there,
Cinco de mayo is outa sight,

We love each other all so right.

My Baby

You are my rock, The shelter of 
my heart, The house that builds 
me, on this white pearly, golden,
platform, with our father, 
The Almighty, You are 
the seed, planting me, In A 
garden of full bloom, beyond 
the growth of A flower, You are 
my blanket, Of Southern 
Comfort, That kept me warm, 
Without you there's "NO 
MEANING," to my LOVE, I 
thank GOD, the day He put you 
on this EARTH, and MADE you 
MINE, My Baby you are that 
precious gem, In my eyes, I 
gleam shinning,TRUTH N' HONESY,
Never To Loose Sight,Never To 
Make You Mad,or Never To Make 
You Angry,Never To Make You Cry, 
Never To Break Your Heart, 
Never To Abuse, Nor Neglect, 
You......
I only want to give, You A 
GENUINE LIFE, AS YOUR WIFE, 
AS YOU MY HUSBAND,
as we go hand n' hand to 
begin, This conquest journey, 
against the burning sun, to the 
ends of the moon, "YES," we 
will struggle, Even fight like, 
The cats n' dogs, but what 
relationship doesn't, it will only 
make us stronger, or it may
even break us, but as we strive 
to our best, forth each 
other, To bond our passion, 
in wed-lock,,,,,
Because loving you, 
makes it all worth the wild 
against the sand... I love you, 
My Baby!!!

Sancuary

The life I live, The choices I make,
The time I spent feeling my heart break,
The tears I've cried the sleepless nights,
The stress I endure threw out my life,
The moments I feared my deepest fears,
The loneliness I felt when you weren't here,
The pain I overcame to keep myself sane,
The moments I spent walking memory lane,
The night we made love in the pouring rain,
That was intense with suspense just the same,
The moment I knew that I fell deep in love,
Was the moment I realized you were the one,
The life that we live the choices we make,
Now all depends on the mornings we wake,
The love that we have and the knowledge we'll gain,
You'll be the one to keep my head  sane,
I'll be the support you need in your life,
I am so proud you call me your wife,
I will be who you need me to be ,
and you will be my husband forever indeed.

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.

On this day as we dance to our song we here a melody no other can here
On this day and through eternity we will dance as one
On this day, the first day of the rest of our life together I pledge my eternal love to

The Kiss

Bed covers rustle;
He rolls close,

His warmth arriving first
with the scent of soapy freshness on his beard.

He strokes my cheek.

Lips brush lips;
scarcely touching.

Receptive to his sweet, sleepy breath
my lips move to him.

The kiss arouses, our souls 
surface, touch, smile,

Parting on the whisper,
Good night my love, good night.

Wedding bells

Wedding bells isn't a big pretty dress or handsome tucks. 

Wedding bells isn't a big church or ball room. And last but 

least, many think it's about family and friends. A wedding is 

mirage, it's love between two. It's a bind many love to let 

pass by.  It's a connection two feel. A moment for both to be 

happy. It's a wedding, true love shall combine. It's a moment 

no-one can break. It's a smile hurting your jaw. Causing your 

heart to truly skip a beat. It's feeling your love in the air.  

Hearing the music in the ocean.  It's letting love make the 

clouds. Wedding bells is saying, I do for life. It's remembering 

your vows.  Holding each others hands and remembering 

sweet moments.  Not letting go for eternity. Giving the long 

lasting kiss. A kiss to remember for life. A true love kiss under 

wedding bells. Wedding bells that brought two humans into 

one. Into one wedding bell.........

The Hardest Thing

Last night we had a quarrel
We went to bed so mad
Each had to get up early
The morning was quite sad
I never meant to say that
I know you didn’t, too
With hopes to reconcile
Just know that I love you

Yeah darling…
It couldn’t be more true

That’s why 
Leaving you
Is the hardest thing to do

Each morning when we go to work
A piece of me, it goes with you
I cannot wait to get back home
To do those things we do

That’s why 
Leaving you
Is the hardest thing to do

I hope tonight we’re civil
We listen and we learn
Together, we’ll get past this
Each others trust, we’ll earn
So, then we can retire
To the bedroom that we share
Lie within each others arms
And show how much we care

Yeah darling…
It couldn’t be more true

That’s why 
Leaving you
Is the hardest thing to do

Each morning when we go to work
A piece of me, it goes with you
I cannot wait to get back home
To do those things we do

That’s why 
Leaving you
Is the hardest thing to do

And when my work’s over
I will come back to you

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.

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.

Fate or Fiction

Is this fate or fiction....
the aesthetics of your love is a marvelous depiction
I am having a love seizure or is your love an affliction
Is this fate or fiction? 

It must fate, our paths have crossed our spirits soar just right 
you calm and sweet and never like to fight...
bring security and confidence in such a delightful way..
the expressions of your thoughts blows my mind away
Is the fate or fiction?

It takes courage to find out which one would be the exemption.. fate or fiction? 
when you have been hurt by an ex's restrictions
but the aesthetics of your love has become my addiction.
No Fiction this is Fate.

Permanent Love

There'll never be another, wonderful as you,
To make me experience feelings I never knew.
Your soft voice, to my ears, a melodic rhyme,
In the future, to seal it, the wedding bells shall chime.
I won't be the type to love a thousand girls with passing days,
Instead I'll be the one to love you in a thousand ways.

Giving me your love makes me a stronger individual,
Loving you, not just a habit, but now a repeated ritual.
What we now possess, a treasure you've been seeking for years,
You could  sense it's coming through all your past tears.
The heartbreaking trials of our past, only preparation,
For this perfect union, there'll never be separation.

For many others, their so-called love diluted with infatuation,
But ours so strong, in it we've experienced full saturation.
At times you wish to know what makes you the object of my affection,
So many words apply, it seems impossible to make a selection.
For if I choose some, there's so much I wouldn't say,
Because my love for you is so much, it could not all be uttered within a single day.
Our attraction remains as spotless as the feathers of a dove,
So strong, so long, two shall become one, truly permanent love.

A Father's Sorrow

In the morning of the night
I looked to the light to find what was right
but all I found was left 
being deft in the night.  

I was not contrite with this inner fight
as I lied attempting to sleep but was slight.  
The night’s fight was ripe with spite 
as I was lost in the middle of my left and right.

Lines of site are veiled with obligatory inquiries
of yin or yang or black or white. 

Should I disinvite the blight within to settle
the fight of left and right? Or make haste of left
even though it’s not right.
 
But the left was and is deft and is pulling the weight tonight.
The right is though, right…
but should I be left?
 
I have to be forthright as a knight by being right
but being left I am bereft in my plight. 
Even now I write to find my right but can’t change the left. 
Having left….could I ever be right?

Step by Step

Yiddy awdy those ticks are here to stay.
Here and there but everywhere astray.
 
Tick tack I am going to laugh at that.
On the Moon or on the Sun I have sat.
 
Jump started or kick started my day has begun.
I’m holding a life of lifetimes on the go or run.
 
Yicky yacky just what is it that I am to do?
Run all over the galaxies in search of you?
 
Shucks you mucks, I’d do it all over again.
But from time to time you stop when I begin.
 
It’s a life of life’s bundling into one row.
Yet it is step by step in which it can grow.

Together

Together is what we should be, me loving you and you loving me.
We dont need to separate, because sooner or later it brings on hate.
Let's try to work it all out, You and I is what it is all about.

You need me, and this I know, why throw away something that 
can most certainly grow. Please be realisitc about our love, do not be afraid
to express yourself,  this is what you need, it might even help.

Why not try to understand, that we both go hand and hand.
I am your woman and you are my man. There is no denying in truth,
You need me, and I need you.

I can’t wait to have a love match

With you in a love nest 

Surrounded by love-lies-bleeding

Sitting on the love seat 

Where we hold a love knot together

And with love beads around your neck

After which we’ll travel down to Love-land 

Where we will be joined in a love-in

It Looks Like Love to Me

You smile
You ask
No easy task
To put it into words
I look
And see 
Then say, it looks like love …to me

It’s that blanket on a winter night
You wrap around me oh so tight
The way you want to make things right
Honey, it just has to be, 
It looks like love…to me

You laugh
You say
There’s no other way
To be just who you are
I smile
Happily
Then say, it looks like love …to me

It’s the way you take me in your hold
You never let our love grow old
There’s not one doubt, for me I’m sold
Honey, it just has to be, 
It looks like love…to me

If love was ever one person
Then babe it would you
There is no other word for this
That’s why our love holds true

You look
Then smile
All the while
You never look away
My eyes
They see
It looks like love… to me

Yeah, honey
It looks like love… to me

Done For Good

Her look that day,
Should have told me everything she could not say.
Unprepared, I stared.
She walked away.
As she tossed our ring,
I felt the sting.

If I’d known then
How I feel today,
I'd heal the abscess and my heart’s decay,
Before her affection left me there that day.

He'sEverythingIWant

His warm breath like milk,
Dark eyes that glow
Sharp yet fulfilling presence
Provides sense of comfort-
I adore his appealing character

Speech proves his knowledge 
Of proper influence
Both in the streets 
And in the office-
Enticing are his orations

His delectabe alluring scent,
His contradicting soft masculine touch
Both have my mind racing!
Dazing rudely into oblivion-
I lust for his possession

The pressure of his body 
Against my own
Sends a tender erotic sensation throughout my body
Air escaping through my chest-
I never want to leave him 

His steady potent heartbeat silences me
At a loss of intellection 
I close my eyes and listen
Captivated by his perfection-
Hes everything I want

I Needed You To Stay

(chorus)

Watch these eyes fill with tears
I don’t know where to go from here
Everything is always the same
Lonely nights filled with pain
Why cant I rearrange
Why does opening up feel so strange
Is this what's meant to be,
A life with only me

 I sit and watch down the hall,
Silence waiting for your call,
If I could just hear you say
That you need me today
Then everything would be ok,
I cant make this go away.
Ive done it again
When will this end
Where is my friend
I needed you to stay.

(chorus)
Watch these eyes fill with tears
I don’t know where to go from here
Everything is always the same
Lonely nights filled with pain
Why cant I rearrange
Why does opening up feel so strange
Is this what's meant to be,
A life with only me

You told me I was the one,
Yet its over before it begun
You took my heart
and tore it apart
Where the hell did this come from
All the tears I cried
From all your lies
I cant make this go away
I needed you to stay

 (chorus)
Watch these eyes fill with tears
I don’t know where to go from here
Everything is always the same
Lonely nights filled with pain
Why cant I rearrange
Why does opening up feel so strange
Is this what's meant to be,
A life with only me

Yet, I Still Thrive

Does my face retrace the anger,
of a once distant love affair?
Do my curves exhaust a notion,
that at one time we kindly cared?
Yet, I still thrive.

Does my smile rile your insides,
and shadow a subtle act?
Do my hips which sway in elegance,
bestow this monstrous attack?
Yet, I still thrive.

Does my laughter force the cringe,
grimaced upon your face?
Do my fingers not gently guide you,
to a once happy, exotic place?
Yet, I still thrive.

Does my spirit not depict beauty,
of a once stunning shore?
Do my lengthy legs not confine you,
in perfect synchronization anymore?
Yet, I still thrive.

Does my sensuality no longer appease,
the thirst once quenched within?
Do my eyes announce the sadness,
of forever living in sin?
Yet, I still thrive.

Does my lonely heart sob uncontrollably,
noting a broken bond of hate?
Do my tears not convey the purpose,
of two lost souls with opposite fates?
Yet, I still thrive.

How do I begin to tell you how
grateful I am to have you in my life? 
I'll start by saying what an honor it is

You're my best friend in the good times 
and my rock in times of sorrow. 
You're the reason for sweet yesterdays 
and my promise for tomorrow.

until I became your wife. 
You made this year and every year 
the best one of my life.

My Love For You Is Easy

There is so much I want to share with you,
But my words are lost deep within me
I have oh so many emotions
How do I make you see

Life is not always that simple
Hear this from my heart
Our faith will concur all
As we stand here at the start.

Not speaking to you is going to kill me
You there and me here
But one day soon that will change
And I will finally have you near.

The Angels they did send you
The day that we met
Our love will last forever
As in stone it was set

Come fly, fly with me baby
Oh come fly with me
We can explore our love together
And set all our deepest emotions free

For the skies are without limits
And the tree tops we sour too
Perched upon a branch
Our love is forever true

I never meant for this to happen
But I am sure glad it did
Hearing your love and laughter
Makes me feel like a kid

Please never doubt my love
What is shared between you and me
Cause I am here to forever hold you
You just wait and see

But for now, I have to be patient
And except our destiny
But I promise you this my darling
You are forever within me.

Measuring Movements

Somewhere upon the terminator’s birth
The young lovers dance and sway
To a symphony of dawn and starlight
Undulating within newfound passions
These two naively press and discover
The zealous meaning of temperate youth

Lost within the mornings heavy rise
They run through the soft breaking crests
Crashing upon their rococo painted beaches
Living only in the ardor of today’s breath
They pay no heed to the passing of the hour
Twisted adrift the spinning of the moment

Beneath the sweated midday heat 
The aging lovers croon forlornly
Calling out to their passing adolescence
With a softening of fear in each other’s eyes
They gently slip back into the hypnotic
And dance in the divine for a moment longer

Standing in the approaching twilight
The aged lovers stand in raptures kiss
Remembering the moments of yesterdays past
No longer young but still ever vibrant
They languidly begin those heavy laboring steps
Of their life’s final dance together…

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.

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.

THE WOMAN WHO WOULDN'T LISTEN TO HER HUSBAND

She would not think the way he did
How could one be so very bright 
Give all her passion to a cause
How could she have such skewered sight

He tried maneuver her with love
He tried to shout a bit and then
He thought he’d slap some sense in her
That’s when she left and said AMEN.

Minding Marriage, or Marriage of the Minds...

We lean in, like a sculptured work in progress,
enigmatic scent to kiss,
when suddenly,
the three inch wide orange rubber bands around our wrists,
pulled behind our backs,
spring us away from each other
at supersonic speed.
Hair flying in front of our faces, slipping through wind without weight...
Back to opposing sides of the world,
tethered to work, anxiety, bills, and the unavoidable
responsibilities of adulthood.
Immediately, I feel my ankles bulge
under the strain of stretching out to meet you again.
My skull is an arrow aimed at you
and I perspire indigence at what I leave behind.
There are no words big enough to explain what I know.
That you are on your other side of the world,
arrow-headed in my direction,
straining wrists in orange bands,
shoulders almost dislocated from the magnetism
that life injects into the scenario.
It will be years again before we meet, perhaps,
and yet, as long as I have the knowledge of our combined efforts,
I have the strength to push ahead, pain what may.
The air is still stained with our image where we barely kissed.
Holographic disturbance which no soul will pass through,
until the orange bands are stretched to cracking rubber, thread size,
and we breathe each other's air once again.

Patience is an additive in my blood, these days,
and I rarely allow myself to ponder,
that, in the mean time, in all this strain and wonder
on our opposing sides of the world, struggling to reach one another,

we must continue to live in the same house.

An Unforgiven Tune

Scanting, ranting, seething persona provides –
the confinement and hatred inside you hide.
Screaming, steaming, aggressive overtones –
provide a key witness of a relationship unknown.

Shivering, quivering, the innocent will crumble,
to a raving lunatic with a malicious mad stumble.
Convicted, addicted, to the same vindictive game,
this romance conceived within lies and shame.

Silently, violently, cursing the call of creation,
vowing to avenge this marital bond castration.
Pawing, gnawing, at an open bloody wound,
strumming, and humming life's unforgiving tune.

Thoughts of April

No clouds in sight
Yet no clear days yet
Believe in what’s right 
Which means loving you from the day we met

I feel the sun
Warmth I can’t explain
Only one other place, bar none
Where I can feel the same

The light you shine
Heals my wounds
From the worlds filth and grime
In the dark, you’re my moon

The gift you’ve given me
To live out my journey 
Guidance, strength, and love is key
For hopes, dreams, and wishes I see

 
Freedom with your heart
I’ve never wished for more
Never want to ever part
For my love for you is deep into my core

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

Forver Growing

You followed my footprints and came with a hand full of stars.
You planted them like little seeds in my garden and waited patiently for beauty to grow.
I started to bloom and now I stand tall.
Your eternal sunshine-showers keeps me growing.
I'm happy and content knowing 
that your world welcomes me and every part of me.
You are my univers and I've learned that no star is out of reach....
I will continue growing till I can pluck each and every star and give them back to you.
My love...My everything.
I will stand proud with you and my roots will run deep.
My branches will reach out to every part of you and the fruits I carry will be of the sweetest 
taste only for you
- by you.

So my dearest you... please stay wonderful and continue to grow next to me.
The world is not big enough for us... lets reach above and beyond.

Forever growing...

Your A Diamond In My Eye

You’re a diamond in my eye,
You’re a beauty,
That I love with all my might,
Your there when I need you,
You comfort me when I cry,
I know you will miss me so,
When I die,
So keep sparkling like you always do,
I know you love me,
As much as I love you.

A Wish

I love being me, there isn't anything I will change
Except when I get a few years older
I'm sure my name won't be the same
I plan on getting married and being carried
By a man with good personality and a giving heart
I plan to love him like i have from the start
So, someday, I hope this dream comes true
There's nothing like committing my life to 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'll Be There

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

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

Forever Your Man

I'm very outgoing, yeah I talk to some girls,
but you got to understand, you're the queen of my world.
Honey, If I had the money, I would glitter your life.
I'd buy you diamond rings and I would make you my wife.
It's true, you've put me through, I'm stuck to you like super glue.
I just wouldn't know what I'd do without you as my boo!
I stand grand in this land, with you at my hand.
How can I make you understand that I'm forever your man?
You're like the leader of the band and I'm your number one fan!
You're totally fine, you're fun, crazy, sexy, and cool.
So glad you're mine, the one, that makes the other boys drool.
When I think about the times I brought a tear to your eye,
It makes me break down and cry. Sometimes I wish I would die.
Girl, you are my Angel. You were sent from above.
You saved me from this hell and filled my life up with love.
Where we'll go from here on out is a mystery to me,
but I know I'll be all right with you, always, next to me!

Armed and Dangerous (A Valentine's Poem)

Don’t know about you, but I think it’s stupid
To give lethal weapons to a diapered Cupid
(and what happens when he’s gotta go?)

See his soft feathered wings?
 (Those fat little things!)
They flutter fast as he flies to and fro

But as he tries to take aim
To start the Valentine game
He sees the earth rushing up from below

For he keeps sinking down
And hitting the ground
Overburdened by his arrows and bow

---

He comes to our planet just one day a year
To practice his skills as a shootist
The rest of the time he’s hidden away—
What’s he do in absentia? Be a flutist?

‘Cuz he sure can’t shoot straight, this fat little angel, 
Child of eros and chaos and earth
I wonder if Venus had any idea
He’d be so fickle, so playful, perverse

Some of his arrows are gold-tipped, 
The tips of the others are lead
And where the gold ones inspire amoré, 
The lead ones breed hatred instead

---
 
Yes, he’s armed & he’s dangerous,
This chubby fly boy
And he’s out of control in the air

At sweet couples kissing,
He keeps shooting & missing --
Hither & yon, over here, over there

So I say, Watch out for that cherub!
Stay out of his way!
Young lovers, go, take cover now!

Give one another a bear hug
And try to live through this day –
Look, he just hit a tree – Holy Cow!

Like I said, it’s just stupid
To arm this babe, Cupid,
To entrust him with arrows and bow

For while he can fly, he just can’t shoot straight
And I don’t want his hands to be holding my fate
I tell ya, he’s just got to go

Before something happens
And his lead-headed weapons
Accidentally break the heart of my beau

Black Love

  
                 Black LOVE

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

Broken Heart Street

Hopelessly lying, in a dying bed of depression,
miserably crying, while trying your confession.
Blackening walls, and halls of a fading youth,
Gruesomely calls, of gnaws towards the truth.

Fading beauty, so snooty to those content,
wailing a duty, sooty, those content dissent.
Towards a failing, unveiling of bloody torment,
concealing the name of shame, not so innocent.

So cheap, sinking deep, into a sea of emotion,
I weep, at the reap of sowing our lost devotion.
I shudder with stutter, at a marital decapitation,
you utter, like no other, at a romantic prostration.

A defile and vile odor is cast amongst the decay,
I smile in denial, as those lost lover’s betray.
Sinking deeply within, our sins have been fed,
doses of greed, they feed till all beauty is dead.

Take cover in the pain, remain emotionally numb.
Hide within the sin, wherein you succumb.
Tread the waste, and taste the defeat,
of a shattered, tattered passion down
on Broken Heart Street.

Her Cultural Design

Feeling the thoughts that arise each passing day in life,
To be listened too, not to be chastised in given advice,
Wanting to be respected so real, not considered rife,
Affection daily, needing not much, desiring complete slice.

In love, I provide nurturing care when ailments occur.
In pain, I deliver daily chores wanting just sweet words.
In humor, I tell stories that may be enriched in a stir.
For these are feelings of my mind, not told for the birds.

I am not the only one belted in time by hormones alone.
However, my delivery of life challenges and stresses me.
I have intelligence, though many make me out, like a stone.
I have anger and strength, which I show in such deep degree.

I feel to be showed love, desire pleasantries from my other half.
I truly hate to be downtrodden, played as a joke in a laugh.

Bound by Divinity

A myriad verse upon love there be
And this is one in an endeavor
To be written more
And forever free

For in intimate moments
My mind wonders to compare
Those things which are 
Like myself without you, unsure
That I might not be

Then, I hold you near
And imagine
If, a flower could
A bee without

Or a seashore would
Devoid of gull 
Or crashing waves about

A dawn in mourning 
When clouds of grayer loom
Deprived of sun

Or even cityscapes 
Upon the night
Deep within the blackouts
In hinder sight, of absent moons

What if rainbows 
In transparency 
Where disappearing
Becoming sights unseen

And waterfalls falling
Plunging into silence
If thunder claimed its independence
Setting the lightening alone and free

Upon a realization
I’m captured
In a tangle of overwhelming
Tendencies

When your warmth 
And beating heart
Back to you
In love, they seize upon me

A peace 
A knowing
For this life at least
You and I will be

As one 
Within our sacred oath
Of man and wife
Held together 
More and more each day
By divinity

Little Red

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

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

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

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

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

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

THIS IS ME

 I may not have all the riches galore,
Or stand laced in diamonds that drape to the floor,
 I may not be built, like the girl in your dreams.
Or bare the manors your mother would teach.
 I may not have money to spend at my will,
Or time to waste ,just 4 the hell.
 I may not cook as good as you,
But you"ll know I tried, take outs good too.
 I never stopped earning all I have gained.
I'm willing to share with you just the same.
 I may not be perfect just honest & true.
All that I have baby,I offer you.

OUR FIRSTS

I love experiencing all our firsts,
 The first time you walked me to my car,
underneath the shiny stars.
 mmmm our first kiss,
And how I couldn't wait 2 taste your lips.
 The first time we made love,
so confident and equipt.
 Never took our time for granted,
we were thankful for this gift.
 The first time you stayed till morning,
had me taken by surprise.
 To wake with this hansom man,
was all worth my wild.
 The first time we had a fight,
And saw who we really are,
 We still made the decision to love each other,
till death do us part.
 The first year of first holidays,
we spent building what we have.
 To turn our loved ones into family,
And continue on our path.
 The times we feel were worlds apart,
you'll always have my heart.
 And now to have you in our lives forever's just the start.

Her eyes

Her Eyes
(Based on Photo no. --- ps__JT76945.jpg)

Your lovely brown eyes,
In love of which one dies,
They have got something tempting,
And I may be attempting,
From my dream, to rise…

Your sweet black dress,
Makes me crazy more or less,
I can make you out in queue,
And I can’t live without you,
But often, who are you is what I try to guess…

I am butter and you are my knife,
You are my dearest life,
You are my life’s cause,
But due to my memory- loss,
I just wonder; “You are my wife?”

Naked in the Sand

We walked along lakeside today
Hand in hand, barefoot in sand
Unfortunately, I had to unfold
My hands to pick up a shell
It was so beautiful, dear
I wish you were there

We played a game of catch today
Kicking up the sand all along
Loping, giggling, splashing
But I fell down on my rear
Too much laughing, dear
I wish you were near

And then in the cove, made love
Just you and I as one my lover
Nature engulfed our bodies
In pure heavenly delight
Perfect rapture, dear
Oh how I yearned

We made a small fire in the pit
Just as the sun began to sleep
We sat there all cuddled up
And reveled in the beauty
It was marvelous, dear
I missed you terribly

We fell asleep on bed of sand
Warmed with gentle breeze
Morning then softly arose
Caressing us with day
A superb morn, dear
Naked, in the sand

Let's Fly

I look longingly above
At the big blue sky.
Do you think it’s possible
For me to fly?

I flap my wings
To no avail;
Everything I try
Seems to fail.

Why can’t I move,
Somehow break free?
Something’s holding me down,
Stronger than gravity.

I look around me,
And there I see
Another soul longing
To be free.

I take his hand,
Try to take flight.
But we don’t move,
Something’s not right.

Our first thought is
To turn away,
But Someone beckons,
We begin to pray.

Something happens 
Right then and there;
Suddenly we feel
As light as air.

He changes our hearts,
Makes us new.
One look at Him
And off we flew.

No tether holds us down;
No limits, none.
We fly together 
For, in Him, we are one.

So come fly with me
To heights unknown.
I’m lost without you,
I can’t soar alone.

Softly as a willow weeps
I lay by roots and soundly sleep
Some small voice inside my dream
It's my child smiling, so serene

Her dark curls cascading down
Bright eyes looking all around
That little darling voice, my favorite sound
With small bare feet upon the ground

Her father, my husband, gazes grinning
At our little girl who was just the beginning
For my body had started showing
What lay within me, slowly growing

My life long wish is coming true
And to my lover, I thank you
For helping with that extra lift
And giving me the goddess gift

Kitchen Window

Time alone
Yeah, we all need
But how does it help
When we need help
Because I still see

I see you parked in the car
In the driveway
The sunlight cast shadows
But still I see you
Do you see me?
Do you see? I’m sorry

This kitchen window
Lets me see you
And still feel you
But really lets me see me
The fact I need you
Do you see me?
Do you see? I’m sorry

We took the vows
Of man and wife
We all disagree
That’s just part of life
The harder we hit
With verbal attacks
It takes even longer
For us to come back

But do you see?
Do you see me? I’m sorry

Funny thing
This time apart
I’m watching you
I think you’re watching me
We hold our hearts
We wear them for the other
That’s all I can say
At least for today
Do you see?
Come inside to me

Live In My Heart

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

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

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

Sociopathic Love

 Sociopathic Love


Don't worry before He’s done with you; He‘ll ravage you
Not just physically but through his words both twisted and firm
If you could only accept that he decides when the game ends;
You'd realize an escape is just as much of an illusion as the man you think you know

Nothing can save you from this game
The lies will roll off his chameleon tongue as he reflects everything you've shown him
He’ll pour metaphors filled with an elusive pitch; deep inside the intimate spaces that fill your head

He'll patiently watch your every move
As you squirm with denial and try to claw your way past the anger
Just as you desperately try bargaining for release
He’ll watch you drowned in hopelessness, lost without the reflection you saw in him

It's a game you won't even realize you've been playing until he decides it's over
He'll know every piece of you by then
Especially the pieces he easily replaced well you were mesmerized in your own reflection
He’ll move on to his next prey soon and only then will you'll start to awaken
He thinks you'll never find all the pieces he planted; you'll never be whole without him 

As his eyes trace the contours of your acceptance
He’ll know at the precise moment he's broken you
As he watches your will bend pliantly to his
Making you just another possession he never really wanted
Then he’ll finally release you out of boredom
Leaving you lost without the mirror you helped him create
Wondering why the piece’s you're picking up won’t fit back together the way they once did

It’s then you’ll realize that he never knew how to love
He’s found his pleasure in the games he plays
Pleasure that calms the jealousy he holds against the emotions that he's unable to feel
Allowing him to walk away without remorse; leaving his victim in their darkest moment 
He's become bored with the people that surround him and confused by his own existence           To him love is only a game used to occupy time                                                               Whenever he decides the time is right it's simple

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...

Burning Embers

After being together for a time of great length
I have no idea how I put up with you, or where I get the strength
You make me so furious, just so mad!
Why do I put myself through this, if I just end up being sad?
I get a reminder every morning when I turn to your side of the bed.
The passion our love used to have, a fire burning such a deep red.
Years pass and the fire dies down
I look at you and your once glowing smile, turned into a frown. 
What’s changing I really don’t know
Sometimes wondering if it was all a show…
But in the morning, breath stinky and hair a mess
I look at you and know I’m blessed. 
Because behind those eyes I see a spark
Memories of making out in the park
The only time we’d cry
is when we had to say good-bye. 
I see something that’s keeping us alive
During the screaming shouts there is something in our hearts we are trying to revive
We’re trying to rekindle the burning embers
When all of the sudden, not just our minds, but our hearts remember
We lean in for a passionate kiss
And all of the sudden, remember the feeling of bliss.
And who knew that was the fuel we needed,
A blissful kiss our hearts and lips have so deeply missed
To rekindle our fire
To rekindle our passion
To rekindle our faith and trust we had in each other.

THE MAN WHO IGNORED HIS WIFE


THE MAN WHO IGNORED HIS WIFE


How could you do it dear, she cried
You think you’ll keep me satisfied
How could you quit a Wall Street job
To muck about with every slob
A rising star---you blaze a trail
You’d shuck it all to run a jail?

Oh, my sweet darling, then she quibbled 
You know I love you…. ear was nibbled….
A cold look flashed—he’d not be played
Now stunned by truth--- she was afraid

She had ployed sex, she had coyed tears--
Anger now surpassed her fears
She screamed at him and slapped him hard
He studied her with new regard
He saw himself a man alone
Threw on his jeans and grabbed his phone.
He viewed his love in raw new light
Slammed tight the door, and said Good Night.

Picture at Prom

Exuberant; wild in love. 
Naïve in hopeful Dreams
But oh so sweet did Passion flow.
Dreams floated from your palms
In glowing waves to flow
Across my curves.
We were proud and haughty in sexual confidence,
Gliding on the center of our own universe

AND THEN I REMEMBER

I wake up in the middle of the night, and reach out to touch you but you are not 
there
 And then I remember, 
The pain returns as quickly as an express train racing out of a tunnel
A quite cry escapes my lips a silent tear my eyes
 I will sleep no more tonight
In the morning I stumble out of bed, not thinking I call your name
And then I remember
I go to the bathroom, no more the clean order of a woman’s touch
But instead the chaotic disorder of the single man
And then I remember 
At breakfast I automatically set two cups, milk in both, sweetener in one
And then I remember
For you it’s just another day but for me it’s as if I am trapped in a time warp 
I eat my breakfast as if in a trance 
And I taste nothing, 
I drink my tea and stare out of the window
But I see nothing
 Except in the deepest corners of my mind
You are still hear with me 
I can see your face and I can smell you perfume
Your laughter fills my heart with joy
 And once again I look into your beautiful brown eyes
And I see again the great love and a deep passion in your soul
I reach out my hand to touch your cheek
My fingers brush your dark silken hair 
You speak my name
Suddenly I feel your soft touch on my arm 
And suddenly I am back and you are gone, 
And then I remember  
    I must pull myself together
 I must try to go on
They say time heels, they say the pain will subside
They say stop thinking of yourself
Think of your child
Words are cheap when you don’t have to pay 
And then I remember
She looks deep into my eyes, and I see her mother’s love
 I see her mother’s passion for life
I reach out and touch her dark silken hair;
 And then she speaks my name,
And then I remember 
Please god let me forget, just for a moment
Just for a while
Just let my child once again see me smile

Do You Find Yourself In An Embarrassing Situation

Do you find yourself in an 
embarrassing situation?
And have brought shame with
 little or no explanation?

Perversion comes in many forms and different kinds.
The result of it is to pollute or destroy the mind…

This type of lifestyle can lead to “an overwhelming” addiction.
And bring into your life misery and affliction…

Many “starve” to “satisfy” their feeling of emptiness…
And too often find themselves
 in a place of loneliness.

If you’re looking to be free 
and have a love worth finding…
Come to Jesus now…  Allow his words
 of hope to be “binding.”

If you’re one who is seeking treatment
 in what you endeavor…
The promises of Christ are true
 and will last FOREVER!

He is the answer to what you desperately seek,,,
And can give you true victory each day of the week!

In the midst of this world’s temptations
 and “false allusions…”
Christ has the answer! 
 He is your true solution!

Allow his word to cleanse your mind and soul…
His blood can wash you clean 
and make you whole!

Enjoy his peace and mercy that’s
already been provided…
His love for you has long ago been decided!

Allow him to remove any embarrassment and shame!
He’s here right now…  Simply call on his name!

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.

How I Really Feel -- For My Husband

I am bathed

Forever You by WLM created on March 20, 2011

You are the one I want 
Forever and again
To brighten my day
In each and every way
You shine as bright as the sun
With the streaming rays which fall to the earth
And your smile is as beautiful
As the stars at night and the moon so bright
With you in my life
I will have not strife
Our lives will be so content
No matter where we have went
Our love together
Will last forever
You make the dark clouds go away
With each and every passing day
There are only a few
Whom are just as you
You are perfect in every way
And this is how you will always stay
I know you will be mine
For now and for all time
We will follow the line
Our lives together will be so fine
Our love will always be new 
For me and for you

Tell Me Its Real

Your tear drop fell into my palm,
I held it as if it were a jewel to my soul so calm.
My thumbs whipped away your troubles and sorrows,
You poured your heart out to me like never before, like it was stories.

I listened very carefully and silent,
Your voice sounded as if it was frightened. 
So understand when I say that you will not need anyone anymore,
Anyone to listen to you, or even smile with you, and I say it from the core. 

Now a little refreshment for your thought,
Tell me that this is what you sought.
Did you see this coming, us being so close and in love like steal to steal,
Now one more thing, please tell me what we have is real, tell me its real.

Unfaithful Remorse

When I come home, you pretend to smile,
But inside you cry, all the while.
You know my thoughts are not of you,
Just hope some day, I'll love you too.
I know not why I treat you so bad,
For, you are the truest love I have had.
If you shall find the room to forgive,
I promise my heart for as long as I live.
All that I have is this simple request,
Let's live from this day, not from the rest.
But if this hurdle should be too high, 
I will cower my head and say good bye.
For its happiness and joy I wish you to see,
Not sadness and pain as when you're with me.
So, have a nice life, and hope that you find,
That prince of a man you once had in mind.
Maybe with time, and the lesson I've learned,
I can renew the vows that I have burned.
To show my love for you of course, 
And to help you see my unfaithful remorse.

You Know Now

Getting that feeling in your stomach,
a huge gust of wind whirling in your stomach everytime time you kiss him.
  When you think of him your eyes just close and you think of everything and anyting about him and you just smile.

Finally having someone that you can actually see your self with.
Finally being happy with someone and knowing it's everything you wished for, prayed for.
Finally knowing that if you'd lose him, your whole world would go dark.
Like part of you has been ripped apart.

That there you know he's the one you want to live the rest of your life with.

They Left so Abruptly

They Left so Abruptly

the valiant ones
countless
many known
many more nameless

the truest sons and singers
husbands and poets

they left so abruptly
with quiet pride
steely courage
gentle dignity

they left so abruptly
leaving us our tomorrows
brighter
hopeful
filled with promise

they left so abruptly
so that we may breathe
the breath of liberty
the air of freedom
the warmth of justice

they left so abruptly
leaving with us their parting gift

they left so abruptly
yet we remember them all
today
in the days that slipped away
and in the many more that we await

they left so abruptly
yet they remain
hewed into our memories
etched in our consciences
engraved in our hearts
they left so abruptly
and yet they endure
with us
within us
now and forever more

To Bunkers And Bad Lies



...to Charlie Hebert, (RIP), my father-in-law,
    with respect and affection



Wind-swept and sunburnt alone on the fairway 
he fusses and frets with his lie; 
he's been here for ever commanding the course, 
ever since you and I were knee high. 

Golf is his passion, he lives and he breathes 
for the chance to play just one more round, 
replacing his divots, observing the rules 
and keeping his feet on the ground.

Always nattily dressed he is ready 
to tee up and go for the green; 
the young guns are anxious to unseat old Chuck, 
but he's crafty and wily and mean!

It's the day of the championship and he's all ready 
to teach these young men how to play; 
at the turn he's ahead with a three under par, 
he'll show them, he'll have the last say!

On the final hole two men are tied for the lead, 
they are edgy as each eyes the pin; 
Jim misses his putt, it goes wide to the left, 
and Charlie makes par for the win!

CODA

In the clubhouse they congratulate the old boy on his score, 
he thanks them from the bottom of his heart;
here's to Charlie then, to bunkers, to bad lies and to rain, 
to another shot at glory when he climbs aboard the cart!

With that little stare 
It’s your kind loving touch 
That shows me you care
It’s your support for all do and share
It’s your commitment to our marriage 
That lets me know you’ll always be here 
It’s your faith in God that makes everything clear 
It’s the way you care for my child 
When she is sad or confused 
It’s your compassion as a lover 
That keeps me mused 
It’s your shimmering smile 
That makes it all worthwhile 
It’s your love for all living things
That makes you shine like twelve kings 
It’s all this and so much more
That makes me glad I have you to adore

Abyss

When I needed you the most - you disappeared.......crawling into the vast belly of this dark, cruel, prosperous world.....leaving me alone to face the darkness and despair, forcing me to find my own light, while you wallowed in your own defeat and misery. But yet I survived, and thrived and surmised it was coming. You will always be a coward who walks the path of convenience and suffers silently for choices you regret. Forever regret, serving yourself a vicious serving of self-loathing daily. One day the darkness will succumb to the light, and the beams will shine upon your old, weak and weary face – but I won’t be there to share the warmth, nor will I celebrate the birth, I will remain distant and far………forever remembering your abandonment…..and forever will I not look your way; this stranger who now surfaced from the darkness, only to find himself sinking back into his dark abyss of loneliness and lost dreams.

His Smile

His smile is a rare thing,
And priceless in its rarity,
It makes my soul shout and sing,
When that smile is aimed at me.

His eyes have that certain quality,
That betrays the gentle soul within,
They sparkle with dreams of what will be,
And memories of good times been.

I’m powerless to his secret charms,
Which he only reveals to me,
And when he holds me in his arms,
I know I’m where I’m meant to be.

Why

Here we go again, you yelling and my head doin spins.
Now both so loud…both tryin to win.
A battle not ment to be, between two who have something so unique;
Now hot biting lips and at times can’t speak.
B_tch is a word I try not to say, I know it burns but what else can I say
You choppin at me like a tree, molding me like clay.
Into who you see in front of you,
Doing stupid things I wouldn’t think to do.
But you know what “f__k this” “I can’t take it no more”
How strong can a man be, when he like nailed to the floor.
And you can take it how you wanna
Cuz that’s where we at right now,
Cuz don’t forget what you throwing
Also hitting like kapow!!!
When all I wanted to do…was just lay down.
So could you please just stop and think of this
You and I in this frantic twist.
All I want is my baby’s kiss.
Brainstorm…and imagine me,
Think of my eyes and what they see.
Something not working that used to be.

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.

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.

Dreamer

 I thought I was fine,
Walking the line,
 Independence is a must,
When losing faith & trust,
 Acknowledging love, 2 be only lust,
And nothing more than a dream soaring threw the dust.
 A tale that was told,
When I was yet so old,
 A fabricated feeling,
To leave us needing healing.
 Thoughts of peace & happiness,
We could never touch,
 Theres something more 2 this lyfe,
Then leeving feeling rough.
 But the things that you say,
And damn baby the way,
 The love that we make,
My body just cant take,
 Emotions over ride,
My mental state inside,
 My feelings now have changed,
& I pray you feel the same.

Going Fast

Caught with glances past
Holding memories going fast
Faces lost pasts caught
I am sorry but I have no memory 
Of any times with you

As good as you look
Your only a odd felt hook
And what we had is now only you
As I open a new book
You would be some thing new

Yes I remember
But theres nothing that I feel
Here to remind me, nothing now here to do
I have nothing but pains for the memory
Your not even a fact or a smell
So untill you are actually bold
I will count you as cold
Some where in a dream I can't hold

My Husband, My Passion

Passion through years does grow anew,
when tangled, are emotions, soft.
Respect is held, with trust, aloft.
Seeing more beyond, to value.

Your eyes held mine, that's how I knew,
what became of the years that fly.
They were stepping stones , as whereby,
our years together, passion grew.

Mere words can not give justice to,
the joy in our life's adventures.
From that first kiss when love matures.
George, you are my passion renewed.

For My Husband

I love you for being my husband.
I thank you for all your love.
I thank you for being there,
A special person sent from above.
I thank God for sending you to me,
For giving me a life with you.
And our children he entrusted me.
Your acceptance, guidance and care,
Given so unconditionally.
Together with my love and certainty,
Give us so much to share.
I feel a special bond not there before.
It gets stronger every day.
Making within me such awesome happiness,
My heart longs to soar.
I know that I am not always perfectly undoubting.
We both have our failures and imperfections.
I think, however, our short comings and trials
 Build between us stronger connections.
I believe that God has brought us together,
Because each has a lot to offer the other.
You, as the father and husband,
And me, as the wife and mother.

Pathway To Paradise

__________________________________________________________

There’s a pathway to Paradise- I’d like you to come along
 What lies before us is a beautiful, pastoral forest
 where our souls reunite finding refuge in one another’s arms 

In the twilight of our years new love will embrace us 
with the unspoiled woven tapestries of our souls
Entwined with renewed senses of wonder and veneration 

We'll bathe under the silvery incandescent glow of the evening moon 
while the symphony of the breeze plays its quiet melodies 
throughout the graceful willowy forest of trees 

            Sheltering our tears
            Relieving our fears 

Breathing in the enchanting unspoken solilguies of our hearts 
that tenderly whisper -Once more my love...

The Return of Calm

I love those eyes which pierce my soul
They tear down walls; if truth be told

Set fires ablaze beneath my feet
Invading foggy channels, deep

Like smoldering lava, gazes burn 
Consume my heart and spirit in turn

Soon, a puddle of chocolate in his open palm 
Arrested breath hangs the return of calm

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!

He

He reached into my downward spiral of solitude, wrapped himself around me completely, assimilated with my very being, and became the wings I needed. He was right on time...and so was the One who sent him (as always, because I am one of His favorites, as you know). So, here he is...a daily (favorite) part of my life, the grown-up part I look forward to, as reliable as the sunrise...sex without touching...a slo-o-o-o-o-o-o-w mind loving. How he did it, I'll never understand. It's like he took two mirrors and held them up to my heart...you know what happens when you do that...the image repeats itself infinitely. He = me x's infinity. I can only hope to compliment his existance, for his equal I will never be...never his other half...but to be the cosigner to all that he is would be enough. If I don't spend the remainder of this lifetime with him, I will certainly seek him in the next. He is my destiny, and as of this moment, I step forward and claim him. I am no longer falling down. He compels me to FALL UP

Wet Dreams

Slow to wake 
Still steeped in dreams 
And 
Heat 
The sheets seem to be tangled around my shaken legs 
Sweat, sweet scent 
Melting off of this...
.....curious wanton body 

I try to let go, 
to shed these dreams of you
That
I always have 
Now 
When I'm wanting 
What you won't give me

My night shirt must've...
 ...it's off and on the floor, wet 
I must've stripped in the twilight hours,
 feeling too much heat in my blood 

I honestly don't remember the touch, 
just the fading dreams 
Of you
I'm still wet, it's just... Everywhere
 The room feels overwhelmingly 
Hot 
Too much heat in my blood 

I'm wanting 
And you're not...

I can always tell
Because in this heat of passion lingering 
on my tongue and 
on my thighs

You don't even notice 
Steeped in dreams of your own 
And snoring softly beside me

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.

No, No, No

Mary, Mary, quite contrary said no too many times.
The boyfriend did cry foul, and left her standing in her prime.
But that’s OK I tell you, he wasn’t the right man to make a team.
And she was looking for true love, that illusive, lovely dream.

The important thing to remember is what this means to you.
Waiting can make sure that true love, is really, really true.

Your no less perfect-for my husband

Love was bestowed upon me in the most precious of ways 
Love that will surely last well beyond my last days
So i say to you, no matter what flaw that may rear its ugly head
Your no less perfect to me,
No matter what you may read or 
Where you are lead
Your no less perfect to me because no flaw can change my 
Perception of your beauty
My eyes are blinded from any flaws you, yourself, may render imperfect
So no less arm
Nor leg
Nor humanly mistake can change my vision of you 
Because simply, your no less perfect....to me

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.

Keeper of My Heart

"Keeper of My Heart"

He who holds the key holds the future of my life,
He who has the key may have me for his wife,
He who wears the key wears the symbol of my Love,
He who possesses the key possesses my future blood,
He who uses the key will be granted access to me,
He who knows me will be rewarded royally,
He who keeps the key is the Keeper of my Heart,
and he may use the key until death do us part,
but he cant try the key unless he's ready to start,
because the key means infinity for "The Keeper Of My Heart."

ADDICTED TO YOU by Collice Rodrigues

I wish to breathe my last breath in your arms

You’re the one to kill me with your charms

Everybody coaxed me to avoid you but no

You’re that someone who I just can’t let go

 

This world is cruel it has always made me cry

You take me to heaven and teach me to fly

You taught me how to deal with my pain

Without you barren would my life remain

 

You take me to a different world as I hallucinate

And all the pleasures of life you begin to recreate

I’m losing my senses someone tell me who am I

I know I need you but I don’t know why

 

Your absence makes me restless it’s you I need

I am an addict and you are marijuana my weed

I got addicted to you that I intentionally chose

Now that I’m addicted I don’t mind an overdose

The Life She Has Always Wanted

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

                                                                                       Summer Gratias

Lasting Love

Ravaging roundness renews romance when you are near.
Your raspberry shaded lips linger lovingly to be admired.
Firm and flavorful, flirtingly flaunting each New Year.
Succulent and sweet, sending Sapphic desires inspired.

Latitude of our lasting love litigates to our passion.
Summarizes sensuality securing the scent which fires,
Excitement and endearment, enriching eager fashion,
For favorable forever fervor, fuels favorite desires.

Raspberry aroma allures anticipation of one kiss from thee.
Luscious lips of my LuAnn, I await, another kiss for me.

Bloody Ties

I steal, what I feel, make no mistake –
I charm, without alarm, to covet what I take.
I hide what’s inside, to abide what’s at stake.
I lie, and will deny, any wrongdoings I make.

You use and abuse your way through this life.
You cheat and defeat those plagued with strife.
You fail, and impale, those closest to your heart.
You wallow in the shallow, shredding ties apart.

We fret over the net, which safety has vanished.
We wail at the stale courtship now banished.
We hurt as we flirt our disaster, daily we plummet.
We trek through the wreck reaching death’s summit.

They say we’re astray, and our minds are broken.
They wonder, why blunder, a mirage of unspoken.
They chatter about clatter, with prejudice abound.
They sneer and they leer, that together we astound.

I’ll take the bane, and disdain and try to explain.
I’ll take the lies, masked in disguise and abstain.
I’ll take the tears, through the years and constrain.
For I made my bed, built of crimson nails and black lead,
and forever in my heart will you remain.

I NEED YOU

I want someone to love innocently
I want to look after someone caringly
I want that one to be all mines
I also want to feel like lost in a whine

Someone to hold my hand when I tremble
Someone to protect when I am in trouble
Someone for the shoulder when I cry 
Someone to cry when I die 

I need someone to smile for
I need someone to stop crying for
I sometimes want to laugh without reasons
I have the desire to enjoy the beauty of seasons 

I want someone to love till last
I want someone for whom I can fast
Someone to realize the pain behind my smile
Someone to shout at without a reason for a while 

Someone to scold me rightfully
Someone to mould my mistakes drastically
Someone to get hilarious sarcastically 
Someone to make me happy willingly

I want him to feed me when I am hungry
I want him to make me smile when I am angry
I want him to tease me around mischievously
I want him to hide playfully

i want someone to love more than myself
I want someone to hug me without reason
I need someone to walk with
I want a reason to live

I need you for the reasons 
I NEED YOU FOR MY LIFE!

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.

An Angel Named Kenny

Kenny I don't know why I get so crazed
sometimes some things just become a haze
I wish I could see myself the way you see me
then all my insecurities could be set free
your my angel sent from my heavens above
that I cherish so dearly like an eagle or dove
your passion released me of all my chains
and gave me love to where ones heart would never strain
I just want you to know that I will love you forever
through all the pain and stormy weather!

God's Definition of Marriage


God designed marriage as the real thing!
Anything less, is what a counterfeit brings!

His concept of one man and woman is very real.
He’s not interested in bowing to “man’s appeal.”

His court of justice rings very loud and clear!
The truth of his word shall NEVER disappear!

You can look in Genesis and it is found!
He created Adam from the dust of the ground!

He designed Eve from one of his ribs!
They were joined together as  both lived!

He didn’t need a constitution to know “their rights.”
He gave them HIS WORD as their guiding light!

Satan has been trying to pervert what God created!
This is a truth.  And need not be debated!

We have cheapened the value of the marriage institution!
And have added needless 
chaos and confusion!

Through the Bible, one husband and wife are taught!
Unless you want to live in Sodom, as did Lot!

Ungodly perversions take many forms and kinds.
And it soon piles up garbage into our minds!

“What God has put together.” 
 “Let no man put asunder.!”
Many ideas of “marriage,” is a total blunder!

One man and one woman is what God ordained in Eden.
It was Adam and Eve.  
Not Adam and Steven!

The choices in life are yours!  And yours alone!
Who is going to be the Lord, of your heart and home?

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.

that single moment

a single moment when you know your life is turning bright,
a single moment when you look at your new born child and know everythings going to be alright
....
a flash back appers going all threw your head, how that one amazing moment the day you got legaly wead, to the love of your life and you know that you are his one and only wife,
to that day yes that day you had created life,
that one single moment a single tear falls down your cheak,
looking at your new born child geting excited like a freak.
....
That one moment you start to pray that you wish he could of been there,
that one amazing moment he had made a child that is so beautiful and rare.
That one spicial moment you know when your child turns seven,
that one sad moment you have to tell your child your fathers is in heaven
...
that moment laying in the hopsital with a new born at your side.
that moment when you start to tear up and cry because you know you really miss the love of your life.---Larissa summitt

Thoughts in a Warm Room

She looked deep into his eyes
wondering why she loved him
It was not shape or personality alone
His tongue was sharp at times
and as he touched her magic parts
Wondering -- vanished

None Better Than You

sensually sliding, rhythmically pounding
erotically echoing our hearts
senses stretching, raw passion mounding
impassioned lovers playing their parts

our bodies moving in perfect time
our hearts melting together in the heat
sinew and limbs twisted rhymes
each striving to make the other complete.

Laying together in each other's embrace
panting breathy kisses shared
this feeling we could not replace
our hearts and souls bared

I Dreamed of Jesus (Part 2)

...
My pupils met his, and immediately my eyes opened.
He saw my past, my present and the future to come.
Simultaneously, my body fell to its knees in submission
As I began to wail and confess, "Jesus-!  Jesus-!
I am sorry!  I am sorry!  I love You!  I love You!"
I knew He knew who I was and all I had been doing.
My heart begged for His forgiveness, longing for his love.
With his eyes still fixed on me, I trembled in anguish.
He overshadowed me, and the fear of torment
Particulated off of me.  Then, I saw my mother's face.
(I knew she had been praying for me with great concern.)
Then, without a word, I saw Jesus reach out to me.
He touched my back as if to lift me up with great force,
But with one last cry of His name, "JESUS-!"  I woke myself up.

I was kicking and moving my arms when I came to.
I was still on earth, but it was real.  I confessed my sins again and again.
I went to the bathroom to rouse myself, then to the opened window.
I was hot and sweaty and too afraid to sleep.  I sat up in bed, 
Turned on my bedside lamp, and began to write this dream.
Mirjana, turned toward me and asked me why I could not sleep.
I simply told her that I had to write, and she turned over.
I finally finished, turned out the light, wrapped her arms around me,
And closed my eyes.  I could still see His light brown eyes and outline of His face,
As if I had gazed at the sun too long and its image was x-rayed in my mind.
What was He going to do?  Would He have taken me somewhere?
Was he going to show me something?  Would he come again?
I do not know, but this was the second time I saw Him like this.
All I know is that He is perfect, and there is no darkness in Him at all.

Love Me Again

The sign said, "Privacy Please"
  He just kept knocking
  And I think he called me a tease
  My knees started knocking
  As he almost burst open the door
  The chain held, and his feelings begin to pour
 
I had no clue he felt so strong
  I thought I had put myself where I belonged
  Easy entertainment and a well tipped crew
  With my newest discovery I begin to brew
  An open development and boy if that man only knew
  His words were so truthful, I had waited so long
 
Quietly a slip of paper with his number on it
  Came through the crack on the floor
  My stomach became a boiling pit
  My cell phone became a key core
  I dialed, he answered, he said open the door
 
My door opened, he stepped in 
Now he was here it was do die or win

Look Into My Heart

 
If you can trust me for just one moment I will make it last an eternity I want to look into your big beautiful eyes and loose myself in love Wrap my arms around you and slow dance into your heart I want to feel the acceptance of change and know I fought for us Follow the beat of your heart for it will lead you straight to my own Two hearts, One rhythm, anguish erased, heartbreak replaced Souls freed of memories past... fires kindled with infinite passion Come to me now so our kiss can take us both home To the place where we live...inside each others hearts

To A Mysterious Man

You whisper sweet 'I love you’ to the virgin's ears.
While breathlessly saying her name, 
You caress your lover's face that bespoke innocence.
You comb her long black hair with your hands, 
And stare at the shining beauty that is in front of you, 

Her eyes that sparkle at the sight of you. 
Her luscious lips that challenge your resistance. 
Only you know the depth of her mysteries, 
Only you will be allowed to explore 
The delicate sweetness that she is. 

You know her, inside out. 
You would simply be too happy 
To oblige yourself to give her all, 
To give her everything you want her to have, 
And to feel. 
Everything she deserves, with all your best.

Her sweet shyness doesn't fail to arouse 
The boldness in you. 
Her subtle ways of making you know 
She wants to be with you, 
Has always been an exaggeration 
To your already weak defenses, 

The mere touch of her skin to your skin, 
Her smile that melts your whole being, 
The look of love your soul craves for each day, 

Her love you'll always cherish the rest of your lifetime.
Always you'll fight for her love. 
Always you'll keep in the deepest recesses of your heart.

A life without her love is not true, and full of doubt,
You've come full circle, you have her love. 

Her true and perfect love completes your existence.
But it's your love for her that fulfills her, 
A union of used-to be wandering hearts,
An end and a beginning for two souls,
All because of one true, forever, unconditional and perfect love,
You and your woman, together until the end of time.

Rockin' Around the Christmas Tree Not Rated PG

I've missed you honey.

The kids are not home.

I can't wait until you're home.

So that we can get busy.

So that you can rock around,

The Christmas tree with me.



I've got mistletoe all over me.

Come on honey let's play,

All over the house! My holly berries,

Are filled with juice so,

Come on ,you fun loving man,

We can play all night and all day.



You can gift wrap me and open,

Me up, of your loving I can't get

Enough! We don't have to be,

Quiet as a mouse. There is no,

One here. The neighbors will,

Know our names again. Oh well,

We heard theirs yesterday!



I want us to deck the halls,

With screams and shouts,

And moans and groans,

 Until the cows come home.

It's lovely weather for a,

Sleigh ride on top of you.



Baby it's cold outside,

The mistletoe is hung

On me. Hey jingle me

All the way all night

And all day. The carol

Of the bells will ring 

For each round of

Us rocking around 

The Christmas tree.



Untinsel me. Take off

My garland. Turn off

The lights. Unwrap my,

Skirt. Your candy cane,

Will licked and not bitten,

And and the Christmas tree,

Stand I'll be sitting. 



My ornaments you may 

Move to the side,

And on the cane I'll slide.

I will soon sing,

Or rest you merry  man

After you sing, let it snow,

Let it snow, let it snow.



You'll then shout a laugh,

Ho, ho, ho, Merry

Christmas to you and,

To you a good night.

You rocked with me,

Around the Christmas tree

With all of your might.

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

Vexing High

I’m caught in the midst of a dream I reside –
tumbling lovers tempting romance with pride.
Twisting and thrusting, to and fro with hate –
stumbling over a beautiful destiny and fate.

Creeping and crawling through shards of hope –
resisting the tension on a loveless, tight rope.
Shuddering in solitude, and mentally numb –
oblivious to the breakdown of who I’ve become.

Teasing and taunting, the years of lost time –
mocking their innocence with words and rhyme.
Insulting their integrity, of wrong over right –
disregarding true feelings, absconding the night.

Searching the wreckage, down high and up low –
for bits of true love and familiar pieces I know.
Vexing in torment, and accepting thy defeat –
of an unspeakable romantic tale of deceit.

Loving You

I want you, I miss you, I love you so much.
When I'm next to you, I'm sensitive to your touch!
Emotions are flowing very strong and deep,
With a love like ours, I don't have to creep.
Holding you gently and tenderly in my arms,
I love lying next to you because you're soft and warm!!
Hold me, love me, and squeeze me tight,
Remember my love, it's not just for one night!!!

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 tailed me as I tripped
I just fell over into love, a beautiful gift
Honesty and sincerity hung it's self at the door
Wills and wants and thoughts I'd never had before

Caught between will and want, feelings poured
wisdom and enlightenment at the brink
I felt as if marriage might help even our score
A ring on your finger might be the missing link

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

Basking in the light of your magnificent love It surrounds me in a fortress of all that you are A heart so pure, its essence so compelling to my own As if God granted us the keys to serenity itself Two souls, touched by fate, longing for love and finding it in each other We are harmony Searching for a place to call home No more

If Only You Really Knew

I cant go and I can't leave 
I'm sadly broken from within between
I know that I probably should go
but every time my heart keeps telling  me, "no!"
you've changed so much, 
and you've lost your light,
now your filled with anger and spite.
you've stolen my happiness and my pride
you call me names and watch me cry
all my tears, sinking into all my fears.
you sit back and laugh with all the guys
joking like my misery is your biggest prize
when I met you , you were something so special,
something that shined like a ruby or crystal.
now your dull you should be ashamed,
your a little boy , you will never change.
god will give back what you've been giving
take this as a lesson in life's finer living. 
kindness and compassion can go a long way
maybe you should remember that, it could help you out some day :) 



This is actually a song that I wrote, Hope you enjoy! :)

My First Kiss

We shall treasure our first kiss,
An enthralling union of our lips
Long lasting, ravishing and demanding
It shall be. An appetizer to our sexual needs,
A first course on our conjugal carte du jour

My hubby, my first mate
A virgin's verse to thee I shall sing
On our marital vows and exchange
My love will I pour into thy heart streams

Love me greatly when we meet
For never shall I play thee deceit
My womb shall carry thy royal seeds
And they shall be emblems of our love

We shall see in the future
When I'm a poesy queen and 
You’re learned of the art of love.

When we meet
My prince
This verse as a souvenir it shall be to me.

How John Mayer helped end and save my marriage

How John Mayer helped end and save my marriage..     S.Hudson

Our love can be summed up in a playlist of John Mayer songs,
A myriad of one liners and chorus’ overlaying the template of life,
Our  “heart break  warfare”  led to a horrible affair,
She and another took solace in a shared love for John Mayer,
They dreamed together with “Half of my heart” playing in the distance,
“Showing me another way” ,
But a dream is all it could be, and a dream is all it was,
The “Gravity” of the situation realized,
And a husband missing all of his heart.
Two worlds pulling at the hem,
“Pain throws your heart to the ground, Love turns the whole thing around,”
It is said, we have lived together through both my wife,
And I don’t know, “If I trust myself with loving you”,
But, “I’m not the man I used to be lately”
And here we are now,
Trying to recapture this “Home life” John muses of.
“I’d love to walk where we both can talk”, I’d love to give you my all,
“Oh it’s taking so long, I could be wrong, I could be ready, Oh but if I take my hearts advice,
I should assume it’s still unsteady, I am in repair, I am in repair,”
For know we stand with our heart in the others hand, fragile, unsteady, unsure,
But oh so willing.
All I know Rhonda is, “There ain’t no sunshine when she’s gone”
“My girl she ain’t the one that I saw comin,” I “love who ya love, who ya love”
That’s  YOU!
I thank you John Mayer for giving us the words and the playlists for 
This roller coaster of emotion, heartbreak, passion, romance and desire,
That has been our Story line.
Keep em coming, because we still have a lifetime of Romancing and store walks ahead…

Did You Know Love Was In An Accident

Did you know, Love was in an accident?

What! When? Where? Wow!  My, my. Tell me it’s a lie.
Can we pause for a moment of silence, focusing on love? Hold on there, love not gone. It’s real, but love wasn’t killed.

When did it happen? It was yesterday evening, I’m believing. It happen, when love was leaving. Everything seem peaceful, it was a lovely day, so they say.

Where was love? In a quite restaurant enjoying a delicious meal. And in came the unreal.  Love was taken by surprise; no one thought love would survive.

Wow!  All were speechless, love seem so powerless. As if someone had stolen all the joy. I am telling you what I know, but I suppose there is more.

I had warned love to be very careful. Always check out your company.  Don’t be in a hurry; look in all directions before proceeding, and definitely no speeding.

Poor love.  Made an illegal turn, and ran head on into trouble. Had a concussion and saw double. Forgot the basic rules of the game; avoid some situations, its okay to be ashame.

I believe love will learn to yield the right of way, on the next given day. It really didn’t have to be this way.

Innocent bystanders saw what happen to love. They said a few kind words while looking above. Someone dialed 1-800-Broken-Heart. It didn’t take long, the crew arrived and love was still alive.

Love is in therapy and recovering from love-gitis. They said it could have been worst; thank God there was no Funeral Hurst.

Sometimes our hearts get the best of us, especially in tender moments, warm occasions and special situations.

Thank you love, live long and always remember, sometimes things go wrong.
Have A Lovely Day…

The lovers soul

In you i see me
Its the sparks that bridge the gap
I feel i know you already
Though we've not long met

I feel the material melt away
As our souls resonate
To have found you feels like a lifes goal
I just know your my souls mate

I wasn't looking for love
I found you through gods grace
Yet somehow it feels like we've just met
At an arranged time and place

Though your here with me now
Who knows how long you've got there
Lets throw ourselves in to life
And fully embrace the time that we'll share.

How Do I Declare

How do I declare
My depth of love for you 
When language,
Man-made -
Limited by it’s own necessity,
Has not the reach 
To express the endless bounds of infinity?
How can I speak
Of something so immense
That is impossible for the human mind
To comprehend?
How can it be
A heart,
Caged within a mortal chest,
Can hold a love
Greater than all Creation?
This,
My love,
Is my dilemma.
How do I declare a love
Who’s limitlessness still amazes me?

HATE

I know your told as a kid not to hate to give
but it is hard to not hate sometimes
like when your not aloud to live
or when just hanging out is a crime

I have hated and I have loved before
but never have I dwelled on why till now
I know it is wrong an have tried not to open hates door
but sometimes it happens even if your not sure how

I want to forgive not hate anymore but can not
maybe I should try harder to put it in the past
I may forgive but it will never be forgot
Some hurts always last

Trey

You are my one and only.
My heart and soul.
My night and day.
You're my sun, my moon and the stars I wish on every night.
You're my best friend, my fiancee, my lover, my life.
You're the best thing that's ever been given to me.
Straight from the gods themselves,
You're my angel, my savior, my world.
You're my soulmate.
My one, true love, and the only person I want.
You are the reason I was put on this Earth, and the only reason I continue to live and breathe.
I love you.

The Man in My Dream

Last night I had the most amazing dream. I found true love with a man who had no name. He was casually dressed in jeans and a T and smelled incredible. 
We were at a house party, me sitting next to him on a couch, very aware of his magnetic aura. He passed a mirror with a small line of cocaine across it. 
‘Want some?’ 
‘Sure,’ I said. 
I leaned in and sniffed the line like a pro. I should have known at this point that I was dreaming, as I don’t party like that anymore. 
Next thing I know we are dancing real close. I am rubbing my hands all over his back, discovering his muscular torso beneath his T with the tips of my finger. I was hungry for this stranger, insatiable. 
He tries to kiss me, but I turn my head, conscious for the first time that I have a husband. I would never cheat on him. I feel the strangers hands tentatively trace the lines of my back, from nape to waist. I am electrified. I feel safe, happy, loved. 
Then the bed moves as my husband places a hand on my butt…his butt for thirteen years. Maybe he felt my passion and it woke the animal in him. 
Now I realize that I was dreaming. I peer at the clock: 4:34am. I don’t want to wake up, not yet. I can have sex with my husband anytime, but this was the first time I had ever had such a dream. I was determined to return to my fantasy lover’s arms. 
You can’t cheat in a dream, right? 
So I push my husbands hand away from my backside and I lay still, my face buried into the tempurpedic mattress and wait for sleep to come. I don’t hold much hope, as it is rare for me to enter the same dream twice. 
But there he is again. This time we are alone. He is dressed in a sharp grey tweed suite with shirt and tie, and silver cufflinks with my initials. I am blown away by his perfection. 
We hug and I am now ready to kiss, go all the way, as I am now fully aware that I am dreaming. I wanted to devour him quickly as I sensed he had to go somewhere. In the heat of passion he peels me off of him and says. 
‘I have some more cocaine in the car. We will party later.’ 
I smile and then he’s gone and I am back at the party sitting on a sofa. I feel lost and confused. 
A policeman sits next to me, smiles and then put’s an arm around my shoulder. He shakes his head and I immediately know. 
‘He’s dead, isn’t he? That’s why you brought me here.’ 
I feel the warmth of a single teardrop slowly rolling over my cheek. 
I wake up sobbing, no tears, but full of genuine sorrow for the loss of my one and only dream man.

Fire, the flames of all my desires.
Heat, the sensation that makes me 
weak.
Emotions, my missions to keep 
discreet.
The more he knows, the easier my 
guard faces defeat.
Weakness, the tremble that 
unsteady's my feet.
Strength, is my better half, he's here 
when I need.
Faith, is Gods security given to you 
& me.
Patience and understanding is 
knowing when to take heed.
Sorrow, is 
overwhelming,overcoming and 
deep.
But pain is the one to really make us 
weep.
Compassion is something that all of 
us need.
To get threw this life, it is needed 
indeed.
To the ones that doubt me, I'm tellin 
'ya don't sleep.
I may be calm & quite but I only act 
meek. 
To walk in my shoes, & to see what 
I've seen,
I promise, you wont be the one to 
judge me.
& to Luis , my man, the love of my 
life.
This love, our love, I don't have to 
think twice.
Our life,our plans,our path that we 
lead,
I promise you baby I will never 
retreat.
To my children, whom I love & will 
one day have to leave,
Forgive me for all the times I let my 
emotions make me weak.
And know that I love you, and you 
guys I did need.
Without you I would never 
appreciate what I achieve.
To my mother whom I did have the 
pleasure to meet.
Letting me go was the best decision 
your mind ever could've conceived.
TO my father who left me alone in 
the streets,
Without you was harder, but could 
never stop me.
One thing I know,I can feel it so 
deep.
God made me stronger than I could 
ever believe.
MY strength, My tolerance,  My 
endurance I keep.
Continuing my life & trying to 
conquer my dreams.
No matter what happens,what ever 
will be,
I will be happy no matter who 
doubts me.

Remember When

Remember When
Remember when I was twenty
and you were only twenty-four?
Remember how you looked at me
and how my eyes rested on yours?
Remember the eyelash on your fingertip
and how you blew it away?
Remember my prayer, my wish
and what I wanted you to say?
Remember the pounding of our hearts
as love embraced our very souls?
You and I
Have known each other from long ago
Before there was life
Before there was breath.

THIS POEM "LOVES.. WINE..."
Brings out THE BEAST,
in my womanly, female, cravings
The PASSION that I Feel
When I Read This Poem,
MAKES me, want to take off
all

And feel what can only
be share between two
hungry calculating souls in love.

My lips grow swollen with ever word
as if i am utterly skin close to you.
And you are caressing, every carve
of my inner and outer thoughts.
no words have ever moved me
to thoughts of so deep, with moist intentions
to which have no endless meaning in its passions
before!
if only I, could sip
for your cup
just maybe
I, too could know and feel,

When All

When all is said and done
At the end of the day
Week, month and year
At the end
When the finish is near
Nay, at hand
One thing will hold true
When the last grain of sand
Has left the hour
And the seconds have ticked away
When the last word
Has been spoken
And there’s nothing left to say
One thing will hold true
Through whatever time
Life has left
Till heaven and earth pass away
And eternity rules
Bringing life a brand new day
One thing will hold true
It doesn’t matter where roads lead
Nor how paths may cross
Doesn’t matter if directions are found
Or ways are lost
Doesn’t matter if freedom comes
Or at what cost
One thing will hold true
For when all have fled
And there’s no more to be bled
All battles have been fought
All conquests sought
When all that’s left to do
Is look around to see
Who’s left standing with you
One thing will hold true
Standing there 
I will be

My Last Tour

My last tour of duty is finally near
To never see again this barren frontier
My heart beats wildly to be with my wife
To live tomorrow and beyond and get on with our lives

I dream of the airport as my plane touches down
To run into her arms in kissing drown 
Rushing of home to continue our bliss
Thoughts of our love drives me to wish after wish

Our romantic want starts since many a night
Rose petals, candles and champagne delight
Silk sheets and oils to well into the morn
The delight of our union, in nine months our first born

To love and to cherish my wife forever
Our hearts as one, and never to sever

All I Need

All I Need... By Candice 

I lay my head on your chest
and the stresses of the day melt away
as the soft rhythmic beating of your heart
puts me in my safe place.
A place so comfortable that my body
seems to melt into yours
and we become one.
The soft kisses you place on my forehead
warm my body with a euphoria that
no street drug could mimic.
My safe haven is your arms...
My lullaby is your heartbeat...
and my addiction is this wonderful man
who cradles me like a child.
This man who protects me.
This man who takes it upon himself
to ensure my safety...
and at the days end,
When I am tucked away in your blanket of protection,
I know that this is where i have longed
to be all day.
Right here...
Right Now...
This is all I need.

Through the Years

Through The Years

Trough the years my love for you has bloomed
Bursting with vibrancy, the petals of love reaching up toward the light
Like my loving arms longing to embrace you
Through the years our bond has become resilient
Like the roots of a Sequoya, rooted deep, unmovable
I fear I can’t love you enough for my satisfaction 
But day by day my love increases, feeding my wanting soul
Filling me with joy
Through the years we have struggled and strived
From thick to thin, through harsh and mild
Battling life’s adversaries side by side
Our version of Bonnie and Clyde
Through the years I have seen you grow and transform
Becoming the man I didn’t know you could be
So subtle and distinct like the musk of the Egyptians
Would I have know the man you have become 
Through the years my love has elevated to an exceptional level
It soars up high on the wings of an Eagle
Kissing and caressing the sky
Like the sweet kisses you lavish on my willing lips
Through the years our souls have become intertwined
Twisting and fortifying the strands of our hearts
Making what was once two become one
Changing our once eager love into our now total adoring devotion
Such a journey we have made is not for the faint of heart
This story we have written not intended for the novice 
A picturesque love we have nurtured and cherished
My love we have made it……..
Through the years

My precious
My warm and glowing light
I cannot seem to sleep at night
For dreaming while I'm awake.

I dream of the kindness I see in your eyes
And I yearn to be able to hold you.
I dream of what Dubai is gonna look like
And how happy I think I'm gonna feel
Complete.

Over and over I say your name, and only because it brings its you I've fallen in love with.

Aw man, if ever there were words, I'd sing them to you.
If only there were actions that showed you strong enough, I would do nothing else but
dance them for you.

But let me tell you this, my sweet love.
I have my whole life to sing
My whole life to dance
My whole life to dream.

And I want nothing more than to spend my life doing those things with you.

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.

One Night

Tease me with a kiss; a touch on my arm.
Taunt me with your smile.
Hold me close to your heart
If only for awhile.
 
Tender caresses leave me breathless
(Standing on shaky ground)
I close my eyes and catch my breath:
I dare not make a sound.

Coax my senses; feed my soul:
Desire igniting life.
A moment captured; a lifetime lived:
All in just one night….
…with you.

Love Is

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

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.

NIGHT OF BULLY (1)

The day was of spring, 
Very warm and damp
The sun shone fitfully
A day that harbors with it brightness

It was a night that carries no signal
Owl was not in sight
Neither was its voice heard
But it was a night of the owl 

It speaks ominous dialect
Utterly different from the day’s language
Its parlance we could not understand
It was a night of bully.

I Dreamed of Jesus

His eyes, they do pierce...
Sharper than the points of the nails
That punctured his hands and feet,
More accurate than the blade of the spear
That drove blood and water from his side.

Last night, I was sitting at a drawing table
(Whether I was writing or drawing,
Or preparing to do so, I do not know.)
In a room without walls with the table lamp on.
Both my arms were on the table top
As light from the west stretched shadows
To the east until they were no more.
His figure drew near, but He was not alone.
Mirjana held his left hand like a royal.  
Her hair was up, and she was in a long gown.
She was enveloped with light like one of his angels.
Her facial expression was that of Eve in the arms of God
Being carried to Adam, who was about to be touched.
When I looked at Him, it seemed my eyes closed;
But His face still came to me.  Through my eye lids,
I surveyed His image.  It was the whitest white
Mingled with the gold of sunrise, translucent 
From head to toe; He was floating toward me
With a smile on His face.  His hair was long and brown;
But the light made it look white;  His teeth were straight.
His full beard appeared like his hair, and then...

The New Me

When your eyes I see
I catch a reflection of the new me
when I see your expression
it's as if God has taught me a life-long lesson.

what is this lesson?
You wanna know?
It's that I remain
beside the brightest glow

the light that you are
has left me scarred
with happiness and protection
as you have taught me this lesson

In the mirror
I take another look
you have opened my life's book
because for the first time
I can call you mine

The look on your face
shows there isn't a race
I've found where I belong
so I'll be with you life-long.

Can God Find You Faithful

Can God Find You Faithful?

I once knew a man had made
up his mind.
He left his wife and children behind!

He met someone who “captured his heart.”
This was a deception 
from the very start!

His wife gave God and their kids
her love and attention...
But her husband went
Into another direction!

  They went to church...
 And did their "Sunday best."
How could this 
 turn into such a mess?

Temptation can happen to anyone!. 
Whether rich or poor.
Be careful what you allow to
 enter your heart's door.

Regardless of whether you've been
 married for a lot of years..."
One shameful act can bring
 heartache and tears!

The love that’s been given...
  Let no one take away!
No matter what others think...
 Or what they might say.

Stay true to God!  You'll be 
glad you did!
His love and joy will bless you
 each day you live!

Jesus will never forsake you!
Or leave you alone!
Allow HIM to bring peace and
 restore your home!

With Every Beat of My Heart

With every beat of my heart, my love for you grows stronger-
Like the strength of a three-cord bind;
You permeate my mind, constantly, all the time.

When I wake or when I sleep, my love for you residually increase.
No day goes by  that I dont think of you
Longing to be with you, now, forever; just you and me in perfect harmony--
With love so deep and lasting that it overshadows all hurts of the past.

With every  beat of my heart
My love for you gets more real-
As genuine as a diamond,
A precious as a gem-
More than a feeling, my love for you is an everlasting seal to bind our hearts 
together in unconditional love that surpasses all others for its ordained by God 
above.

I love you true and real
I love you strong and deep
I love you quiet and still
I love you tender and free
I love you for loving me.

HE WAS THERE

I know that there are some that still can't pray
and others that ask, 'Where was God that day?'
HE was there with each tear that's shed
as the news reported, There is thousands dead!'

HE was in the hyjacked planes so out of control
His angels collecting each passenger's soul!
HE was there at the buildings of the World Trade Center
with Heaven's gates wide open bidding all to enter!

HE was there in every tired body and grimy face
that refused to give in to another trying to take his place!
HE was there amongst every common place hero
who repeatedly dug through the rubble in New York's ground zero!


HE was there with the passenger's of Flight 74
whose sacrifice kept the enemy from the White House door!
HE was there with those that died at the Pentagon
when another plane flew into them like a bomb!

HE was there when thousands of passengers landed
unable to get home, so on Canadian soil they were stranded!
HE was there in the smiles of the Maritime youth
who came with blankets, fresh clothing and hot bowls of soup!

HE was there when the President cried out with pride
'This will only make us stronger, we have GOD on our side!'
HE was there when AMERICA was at Iraq's door
teaching the Taliban what happens when you provoke a war!

HE is there today as countless others reflect on the loss
just as HE watched HIS only Son die upon the cross!  HE WAS THERE!

Almost Guilty

Occasionally I cry,
Overwhelming joy, 
Sadness is deprived
Seems Surreal
I found the real deal,
I feel almost guilty
Like it's a steal
Must have been a saint in a past life,
I'll soon be lucky enough to be his wife

A Walk To Remember

I met you on that hot summer day,
We were walking by the bay.
You had a gleam in your eye,
I knew then, you were thee guy.
I called you first,
I was so nervous, I almost burst.
We would make small talk,
And hold hands as we went on walks.
I could hear the beating of my heart,
Hoping that we would never part.
My hands would start to sweat,
In my heart, is where you crept.
I was so in love with you,
I could feel it, I just knew.
You loved me back,
Our lives joined together was no act.
We had so much fun,
Everything together we've done.
We would stare into eachother's eyes,
Promising to never say Good-bye.
A couple years went past,
I knew our love would last.
We would always smile,
Our love was no denile.
Then that day came,
The gleam in your eyes was still the same.
You took me to the beach,
Asked me to have a seat.
In your pocket, your hand went,
Then you told the story how we met.
You bent down on one knee,
"Will you be my wife?" You asked me.
I started to cry and answered "YES!"
You held me in your gentle caress.
Six months later, we were married,
In our new home, I was carried.
You laid me on the bed,
"I love you forever." You had said.
We made love that night,
Everything was so perfectly right.
I cuddled close to you,
I then told you, "I love you too."
Days went by, and I was with child,
Your cell phone I then dialed.
I told you that you're gonna be a Daddy.
You jumped for joy, you were so happy.
Then, the day came about,
We had a couple names picked out.
I started to feel real improper,
So you took me to the Doctor.
I was in labor,
Every moment you savored.
I gave birth to our healthy, handsome son.
With him, we were joined as one.
We have a loving family,
Living together happily.
We will always be together,
We promised eachother FOREVER.

Unspoken Love

We talk about the weather, about what we did today..
We talk about the kids, and the funny things they say
There are things that are never talked about, that are
screaming to be said
Some things are in my heart, and some are in my head.
You used to say I love you, I'd say I love you to
and how much you missed me, and the fun stuff we'd do
The many miles between us has frazzeled us to the core,
and feelings are strained, and not as strong as the may 
have been before.
Time itself has made it's mark, it's taken a toll on us to,
That wouldn't be a bad thing, if I were still me, and you
were still you.
I want to walk with you and hold your hand, and say how 
much I love you,
I want to kiss you on a crowded street, the way we used 
to do.
I want to whisper in your ear, say things to you I've never
said,
cover your body in laverder, from your toes up to your head
I want to take your heart and wrap it up inside mine,
and keep them safe forever, until the end of time.

Love at Breakfast

One beautiful mourning
   wine for breakfast, I knew
I never wanted to eat again
   If not to eat with you

So let the romance begin
   Your love I want to win
I want my life to be with you
   I want you for my wife

In future strides 
   I won't ever deny it
   I need you by my side
My soul takes flight with you

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.

Definately (Love)

He gave me a kiss with his eyes.
He, using his smile, held me wrapped so tight.
He brought me joy beyond words because he used none,
Made me sing to music without a song.
"But how?" You might ask me.
"Was it magic?" Maybe.
"Love?" Definately.
"Or could it all be a dream?"
Um...possibly?
But, no! It couldn't have been!
You weren't me when I was with him,
When he kissed me with his eyes,
When my knees went weak and I felt I could fly,
When I,
With all of my inhibitions gone,
Sang to music without a song.
So, was it a dream?
No, but love? Definately.

Sowing The Seed Of Love

The first time we talked
My heart took flight
I wanted you always
I knew that night

The first time I saw you
My emotions confirmed
That I had to have you
Under no certain terms

The first time we met
I couldn't believe
All my dreams were before me
It was hard to conceive

The first time we touched
I melted inside
I knew from that moment
Our hearts would collide

The first time we kissed
Heaven moved earth
I never imagined
The greatness of your worth

The first time we embraced
Created passion aflame
Making love to you honey
Created the same

Always together
Never apart
I love you darlin'
With all of my heart

THIS OLD FLAME



1.	Children are both taskmasters and tiny chaperones,
2.	Colin, honey, we need more time alone,
3.	The moon makes its promises while I slowly burn,
4.	Every night shift, I’m left to toss and turn
5.	beside the phone.

6.	Kisses and caresses will be our sultry reviver,
7.	Rekindle this old flame, stoke again our fire,
8.	Let the games begin so thin sheets scorch and churn,
9.	Outwit, Outlast, Outplay, this Survivor.

10.	Make your patriot sing, oh! Oh, Canada! Oh! Oh! Yes! Oh!
11.	Don’t go so slow, and yo, my man, take it way down below,
12.	But spend some time above,
13.	Cause by now you know, I’m a slave to love,
14.	My lips also have, contain, something I'd like to show.

15.	I yearn, you desire, I crave, you require,
16.	So, here’s a switch to my hot wire,
17.	I’m tired but happy to oblige, my eyes will plead encore,
18.	We’re running on empty, but when push comes to shove, 
19.	After all these years, you still moan that I fit like a glove,
20.	Now longs to be ravished … slowly and evermore.

Their Anniversary

Looking about 
on a starry night 
An old man turned to his wife. . . 

"I see all the love we've shared 
somewhere -- 
beyond the moon in your eyes." 

She beamed.

Saint

I have been at a loss for cumbersome syllables
And dislocated octaves,
Which tumble in lazy metaphors from lips
Smeared with cheap makeup in declarative shades
Of fire engine spectacles, muddy rouge,
Polluted sunset pink,
To mask a cadaver's stitches, preventing
My Heart's restless peaks from bursting forth
Into senselessness.

Where have cognitive examinations flown
Off to, cradling air with hollow bones-
With the flowers, or the cowboys.
Lucidity snatches at April's
Lionlamb air;
I catch falling words on your tongue, like
Raindrops.

Strip my world, proverbial paint thinner
Peeling pseudo-realistic wallpaper
In sunburn fakes,
Of all falsities I've shacked my wrists with.
Paint over my
Red crayon scrawled morale
With You. 



"Saint"

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.

LIFE IS MEANT TO LIVE

LIVING IS LAUGHING, SHARING THE FUNNIEST MOMENTS THAT CAPTURED OUR GREATEST 
SMILES.
ENJOYING THE TIME WHEN SOUNDS OF HAPPINESS WERE ALL THAT CLEARED THE AIR.
THE GIGGLES WE'VE HEARD, THE SMILES WE SEE,
THE TOUCH I FEEL WHEN YOU ARE SO NEAR.
LIFE IS THE MEANING WE LOVE SO DEAR.
THE AMBITION & MOTIVATION USED TO KEEP OUR HEADS CLEAR.
OUR REASONS TO STRIVE & TO KEEP LOVE ALIVE.
OUR DECISIONS TO MAKE,
TO FEEL OUR HEARTS BREAK,
TO TAKE THAT GREAT CHANCE BEFORE ITS TO LATE!
TO FINDING TRUE LOVE & NEVER ASTRAY,
TO BEING SO ANGRY & STILL WANNA STAY,
TO HAVING THE PATIENCE OF AN ARMY OF MEN,
BUT STILL BEING ABLE TO CRACK & BEND.
LIFE IS A LESSON FOR EACH ONE TO LEARN,
AND BLESSINGS THERE FOR EACH ONE TO EARN.

There's money___then there's love
Looking back at him __desiring 
Brief encounters above
Husband's comments deriding

So handsome fire__home ice
Guilt, shame, remorse____desire
One last glimpse maybe twice
Marriage but children__can't transpire

Inner turmoil__wishing
Should I walk away now
Turn turn around running
We'll say the wedding's vow

Free to Dance!

Like a diamond, sparkling so bright
Just out of reach, want to grab on tight.

Admiration and desire grow in my heart
Little did I realize it would tear me apart.

The grass looked greener, thought it would be sweet
Forbidden fruit—nothing but deceit.

“No one will know; no one will be hurt.”
It’s a lie!  Don’t even flirt.

My eyes were opened before it was too late
Thank you for saving me from a terrible fate.

I see the one before me with whom I am one
There’s no one else for me under the sun.

I’m happy, content, at total peace
Love, rediscovered, will never cease.

So thank you, Lord for a second chance
I’m free as a bird; once again I can dance!

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

Marie III--Is the Coffin Too Deep

So frigid was her immaculate body Her last second in screams is all I can see Love's revenge was my guilt With you I'd rather let you die with Bound hands Without you, Marie, like the psychopath's dream Death is all that I can see; All that could redeem Did anyone ask Did anyone recall The sweet taste of the poison The swift slash of the knife he penetration of the lead The pain of her decaying heart I can hear it's bellowing cries But why can't you, Marie, Hear my paranoid eulogies Is the coffin too deep? Was it so hard to solve Was it so hard to see That I strangled her so easily My nails piercing her comely skin Blood dripping like the pomegranate I crushed with the shovel I shattered her shins The knife to slight her wrists Didn't you see I did it all The only witness Couldn't say Is the coffin too deep? The pain of her decaying hear tI can hear it's bellowing cries But why can't you, Marie, Hear my paranoid eulogies Is the coffin too deep? Marie I cant stay Earth is to cruel when your coffin is to deep Forever in death and in death alone The pain of her decaying heart I can hear it's bellowing cries But why can't you, Marie, Hear my paranoid eulogies Is the coffin too deep?

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!

Ripped Soul, Sutured Soul

When you were born did your soul burst,
Sending a part of it spiraling through the universe?
Did you continually walk around feeling lost,
At night did you turn and toss?
When the paths you did wander,
Did you begin to ponder?
Where is she,
The one that I seek?
Where is she,
The other part of me?
Did every path you followed lead to dead end,
Into fits of depression did you descend?
Did your feet follow their own road,
Always looking for the the other part of your soul?
And when your feet lead you to me,
Did you comprehend it was a little easier to breathe?
Did you automatically realize I was the one you had searched for for so long,
Did the vision of me make you strong?
Did you realize I have always been the one,
The moment you saw me did the cage holding your soul come undone?
Did you just know,
That I was the one with the other part of your soul?
Did what was once broken automatically suture,
Did my presence unlock visions of our future?
For me the second I saw you I knew my soul would never again roam,
Because in you my soul has found its permanent home!

Those Close to Us Can Cause Much Hurt And Pain


Those Close To Us Can Cause Much Hurt And Pain... Isn’t it amazing… The hurt and damage, someone can do? Especially by the same person who said; “I Love You!” Isn’t it amazing… How someone, which we’ve given our heart… Can betray our love, and “tear it all apart?” On that special day, when your vows were exchanged… It’s almost like “overnight,” some people change! Even amongst Christians. This seems too commonplace. As people seek their own desires… Instead of God’ grace. Isn’t it amazing… How anger, jealousy and bitterness begins? Even amongst our loved ones, that we have called “friends?” What’s more amazing… Is how God, in his mercy and care.. Still loves us. And he is always there! No matter what you’ve said… No matter what you’ll do…. God remains the same. And is always there for YOU! He is faithful. His commitment to you is strong and secure! His love is everlasting. And is 100% PURE! I stand amazed, as to how God still loves us. He asks for our heart. He wants to trust us! Won’t you come and experience his love today? He loves you so much more than words could ever say! By Jim Pemberton

It's You

It’s You

A simple smile
A kind gesture
Saying you love me
Just being there
Even on my worst days 
There is the joy of one person
Who can make me smile

It’s You

The gentleness of your touch
The kindness in your eyes
That special look
Means all the world to me
As it reminds me that

It’s You

Someone I can lean on
A confident 
A best friend
The one I want to spend
The rest of my life with
Someone I cannot imagine my life without
Someone who makes me smile 
Even when I want to cry
I am so happy I found that special person
That special bond
That once in a lifetime kind of love
I found it all 

It’s You 

The man of my life 
My husband, my best friend
I love you!

To stay or to go, that is the question

Why are things so bloody hard! Decisions decisions to make, I just give up! So bloody tired, confusions the feeling I hate! I have my reasons to feel this way, but that doesn’t tell me what’s best, Is my fate to leave, or suffer and stay? Feel like i'm being put to the test! My wants and needs becoming so strong, control is something I lack, How can feelings so right be something so wrong? Why can’t I leave and never look back? A man in front of me giving he’s heart, but my heart no longer needs he’s, Do I think of MY needs, rip this family apart? Or do I give this man what HE needs? I just want the freedom that’s bursting inside, longing to do as I wish, Trying to contain it, trying to hide. Why cant things be easier than this?! I never expected to feel like I do, but now its here, which way to turn? Do I stick with the old or move into the new? I guess this is a lesson to learn. I just can’t go back to that mundane life! Challenges is what I now seek, NO MORE just a mother, NO MORE just a wife! I’m using my bloody voice to now speak! Cos i’m not JUST a mother! I’m not JUST a wife! I’m a woman who wants to be seen, I feel i've gave others myself in this life, but now I feel its time life gave to me! I don’t care what’s important I don’t care what is right! I just need some excitement once more! So please my dear God, please give me a sign, hand me the keys and show me the door!

Destiny of Love So Divine

Drive me to the brink of madness, with kisses so fine.
Ecstasy is not a drug for us, but life’s superior line.
Sensuality, takes us on the road of temptations desire.
Treasures of the heart bless us and start the fire.
I am blind by the affection; you give so willingly.
Now and forever, our lives bonded, delicately.
Yes, it seems to true and so unreal, we have this thing.

Our lives as well bound by the blessing of this ring.
Favored by the heavens, I know, we are until the end.

Listen to the pledge; I give to thee this day, I send.
Only you my love can sweep my desire to pleasure.
Visions of you came to me, dreams of measure.
Every look, which you give to me, shows love divine.

Sincere words that you say each day, makes me pine.
Our passion is roaring with such answers, that quake.

Driving us to the brink of madness, which we make,
I await your presence, each night, as we prepare to sleep.
Violent fevers of ardor set my body to quiver and weep.
Individuality of ours does not exist, while together.
Nature has flooded our souls, with both lace and leather.
Excitedly, we both win, with destiny of love so divine.

And thru the years, may God be found forever in your heart.

The Things I Feel Inside of Me

The things I feel inside of me,
I doubt anyone will ever know.
The things I feel inside of me,
I try so hard not to let them show.
The things I feel inside of me, 
Sometimes makes me cry,
The things I feel inside of me,
Make me wonder why I'm ALIVE!
The things I've seen,
The things I've done,
Makes it hard as hell,
For me to live on!
My life is so much better now,
Than it was before,
I finally have someone that loves me,
That I love even more!
This man comforts me, 
When I'm feeling all alone,
The man gives me shelter,
After 25 years I finally have a home!
It's not the walls, the roof, 
or even the floor,
It's the Love and Understanding, 
That I never had before!
I need this man,
More than he'll ever know,
To hold me and love me,
As we grow old!
His smile can always, 
Brighten up a room,
He eyes tell me,
He loves me, 
And he'll never leave me, Blue!
His arms they hold me,
And touch me so gentle.
His body, so handsome and sexy,
I can't get enough!
He always makes me smile,
Even when I want to cry.
He always kisses me gentle,
To tell me he's at my side.
He loves with all he is,
Was, or ever will be, 
With him is where I'll stay,
Through eternity!

Maria

Holding back wasn't a option anymore
My lust for her was as big as Mount Rushmore
I was going to make her mine
It was only a matter of time 
Two families will be torn apart 
I thought having her in my bed was smart
But it felt so right running figure nails down my back
Making passionate love two emotional lovers interact
A husband a wife filled with lust 
Not knowing two families about to bust
I'm leaving my husband he can't please me like you
I couldn't deny her touch could make me brew
I'm game me and you
My wife already knew
There was no turning back I was to deep

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.

Love To My Husband

I am drawn to you like
The stars to the midnight skies,
The earth to th burning sun..
Water to thirsting flowers.

I am comfortable with you like
An old pair of boots,
A faded pair of jeans,
My favorite sweater and scarf.

I am at peace with you like
Sitting in a boat in the middle of a lake,
Taking a walk in the wide open spaces in the country,
Listening to rain drops fall in the dark of night.


I am alive with you like,
The laughter that is uncontrollable..
The heart that gose "thump"  "thump" "thump"
Running throught wildflowers in the wilderness.

Every ounce of my being..
Mind, body and soul are riveted by you,
I am alive with you, free with you,
Comfortabel with you.

He drowns me in sorrow, 
and the choices he makes.
I suffer because he does,
I ache because his soul aches.
He won't let me be,
because I love him.
To him I should eliminate this heartache.
I should take it as my own.
He doesn't quit see it only adds to mine,
and makes me insane.
How can I possible heal his heart?,
when all he does is break mine.
Why would I want this?
I was broken when he met me. 
For him I try.
I try and I try,
because I do not want my love to whither.
It's killing me tho.
My love is killing me.

that's sexy 
The way you cant really think about anyone

The way your eyes light up when you see me 
The way your breathing changes when we kiss 
And I like when 
You cant think straight 

Like a game

Point out my perfections and I show you my flaws 
Blowing kisses only because I cant touch you 


Give me one reason why

Love to Deep for Words

I often think about the word I really want to say
to someone I love so much but I can't find a way

To tell my love just how I feel the words I cannot find
I search so hard to pull those words up into my mind

My heart can;t speak it only feels the love that I can't keep
all bottled up inside my soul the feelings are to deep

To tell my love just how I feel this one thing I must do
the only words that I can say is darling I love you

A flutter

Arms sink

At the Window I Wait

At the window I wait For my love to be home Back from the war And it's deathly roam My longing to enjoy The love of my man To hold him so tight My wantings to run To bathe him and sponge His war torn soul To rinse the dirt Of man's murderous goal Soothed and soaked I join my love Lathered and scented Soldier and dove I hold him close So tender in touch Caressing my man To enjoy him so much We exit the bath Lie in front of the fire Drying each other For soon my desire His silhouette In the fire glow Manly and proud In wanting grow We lay down together Touching, kissing So many years All this was missing Exploring and caressing Like lovers anew I welcome my darling Through heavens dew Like a fresh breeze Over my body he lies Taking me gently My groaning thrives His torso captured By my legs and arms Displaying our lost love Sharing our charms In the glow of the fire Shadows bounce Lubricating our souls Our bodies announce The missing years In the cries as we sighed My husband came home But so many have died . http://www.thehighlanderspoems.com/love.php

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.

Waiting...

Waiting... By: Candice 


He listens in the dark at the warfare in the distance.

With each passing day his heart grows colder.

His passion for violence grows immensely

and the remnants of his " once was life" are no longer fresh in his mind.

Gunfire and roadside bombs were now a part of his everyday life.

He''d give anything to be at home, warming a bottle for a midnight feeding,

or preparing to change a diaper who had been a victim of a disastrous explosion.

He smiles to himself thinking of his new baby boy

and prays to God that he will return home safely to hold the precious miracle of life

that he had not yet laid eyes or hands on.

He tightly closes his eyes to hold back the threat of oncoming tears.

Images of a deadly blast just days before crowd his mind,

He begins to weep.

This war torn life would affect him for all eternity.

He was in fact, a victim of war.

He would never know another restful night.

Rest doesn''t come easy for a man who has seen men blown to pieces by bombs and lifeless
on the terrain.

However the disaster of a lost life somehow brings him strength to drudge through another day.

He takes out the crumpled birth announcement.,

reads the print and gently tucks it away.

He had never known such an emptiness.

Everyday he waits.

For what he is not sure.

He just prays in the end, it will have been worth it.

Love is a magnet igniting sparks to try higher light.

Love connects beaming light twinkling at midnight.

Unmistakably, I’m assured audibly to get this heard.

 

I love you is more than me,

 

Love is pending in the depths of me I touch.

This is more than what I can realistically feel.            

It is a bargainer’s deal for the sweetest steal.

Evidently, I run wild because I set it all free!

 

I love you is less than you,

 

It is an uncut gashing wound,

With lifetimes of a scored scar,

It is a typhoon of who you are,

Apparently, it is difficult to do!

 

I love you is less than them,

 

It is always lost,

It is never found,

It binds to a cost,

Hearts are bound.

 

I love just like you,

And you love just like me!

 

I swear to my God Almighty from up above my heart is pure and true!

I really do embellish everything my love is suppose to do just for you!

 

Forever and ever, the whole world shall open their eyes daily to see!

In lieu of this unconditional love, it is here I will always want to be!

Pulling the legs off Ants

The trouble with small minded, self-centred bigots, is the inability to see the truth of the wider 
universe, the one that doesn’t revolve around their pathetic little selves

To be so afraid of the reality of the world that they have to hide behind the so called “power” of 
their bitter words and twisted minds

to live a life in constant fear of the unknown, fear of other cultures, sexual preferences, hell even 
poetry is scary for the small minded as they don’t understand it, so it must be feared and hated, 
just like the blacks are hated, the gays are hated, and the “towel heads” are hated, and anyone 
with a different point of view are hated

The inability to understand that others see the world in a much more beautiful light and can see 
the truth in other people’s feelings and views

The world is full of beautiful people, all willing to share and enjoy others views, cultures and 
generosity of soul

what terrible shallow lives to lead, that the beauty of other minds has to be shackled for them to 
enjoy their feeble little selves, how great a victory, to trap such beautiful souls merely to satisfy 
their own selfish needs, to feel pride in watching one more shining beacon of beauty extinguished, 
leaving the world darker, bringing it ever closer to their dark little twisted minds

It just reminds me of the nasty little spoilt child pulling the legs off an ant for the fun of it

For all the sweet souls trapped in a prison of hatred and fear
Written for a female friend who survived twenty five years of this kind of marriage

Swooning

Mild developing thoughts awaken me to passion.
Postponed my romantic feelings upon the hour,
For your words raptures me to be old fashion.
Releasing me to shrink into your arms power,

Romantic touches pulsate and lift my sense.
Repetitive sweet words my feelings breathe in.
Kisses that make me shudder in suspense.
Your rhythmic breath boils my adrenaline.

Tonight shall be gentle and graceful affair.
Sliding together in paradise in our love pose,
Steadily uninterrupted with no care,
Quivering along with a shudder, everyone knows.

This evening shall be shadowed only by the moon.
My promise to you my love, we shall both swoon.

passion

dark room,no light
not day,at night
soft kisses on my neck
gentle leg caress
quiet whispers in the dark
melting my heart
skin on skin
chest to chest
making love to you
is the best
i've never felt so beautiful
ive never felt so alive
everything feels so good
i think i might die
a noise squeeks out of my mouth
a noise ive never heard
any other time im silent
not a whisper,a whimper,a word
but you,you set me free
you let me be me
chest to chest
cheek to cheek
all the passion is starting to leak
i hold you tight,there's no-one above you
whispers both ways softly
"i love you"
creating a life
half of you half of me
how in the world can this be?
so amazing,so truthful
so wonderful and bright
i close my eyes
remember this night
lock it away in my head
save it for myself
ive never loved so much
never ever felt
so perfect,so alive
so beautiful,i cry
and you,just you
are all i need
all i need is you,just you
my chest to your back
a kiss on the cheek
close my eyes and remember all the things around me
how you smell,how you taste
wonderful,great
how do people cheapen such a beautiful thing?
to have something feel this good,this right
creating our child,you turn on the light
and the last thing you say when i ask you not to
is im leaving it on..i need to see you

Proclamation of Love

Never did I think the day would come when i wouldn't be by your side, when i 
wouldn't be holding your hand, gazing in your eyes. It never even crossed my 
mind that you were not that special guy, that we wouldn't get along with each 
other, that we wouldn't last past our first time. We clicked instantly, you literally 
swept me off my feet with just one kiss. I stood there motionless as if, there was 
a lifetime I had missed. Instantly my whole outlook had changed, I began to 
understand how friendship can lead to love, how independence can be 
interpreted as two becoming joined as one. I no longer have to be alone, no 
longer have to state my claim that i'm perfectly fine being on my own. I realized 
that was all a lie and a front as soon as i looked in your eyes. You showed me 
truth, you showed me trust, you showed me accomplishment more importantly, 
you opened your heart to me and showed me love.

Mate




Vir and famina partners in time,
Evolving together as surf and sand.
Distinctive styles, views, merits,
They compliment each other.

Lifetime collaborators bound as one,
Enduring life's struggles and accomplishments.
Withstanding the face of difficulties and difference,
Learning, loving, together.

Recognizably exceptional as snowflakes,
Mars and Venus embrace their universe as partners.
They may not see eye to eye,
Yet walk strongly and united hand in hand.

My Once and Former King

O once and former king of all me thee surveyed,
I submitted, with my small embodied self,
to your regency over me:  I kept your ring,
instead of another offered me, 
O once, and former king.
The day has come when I stand here, alone
on a high tower, and, below me, staunch
and sorrowful you stand, your blue eyes
empty as the gray and windy skies,
your heart, too, as cold as the blue blood
it pushes through.
You thrust me away, for I prayed to a God not yours: 
But spurned, I opened my long-unfolded wings,
And soared up --- when about to strike the stones!  ---
For I remembered how once I was well-beloved
By another man --and, lest you would ever know,
I was silent—for he died, and I alone
had to survive the winter storms of snow.
I regret that you will know before you die, my rigid king,
sequestered up within your own small, nested world,
that secret part of me, that ever did yearn to fly,
when I gleamed there, a vision in your eye—
ah! You never knew-- the eagle whom you cast down
--that before she’d strike the stones and die--- she would fly.

Forever-Part 2

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

 

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

 

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

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

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

Love

Our lips touch to the settle sound of moans in the night
Cold sweat drips from your brow
And our souls form into one complete being
One love to rule 
Bodies move together in a dance that make the gods close their eyes
And the sins we commit save a spot in hell for us
But as I hear the sweet sound of your love wrapped around mine
I would give my soul away to save yours
As we move from sitting to standing to laying 
We mark our place our home 
With the love that will never die
The love in the books that we only hear about but never find 
Until we met 
That love became real for me 
For us
Finally we grip each other in the climax of our uniting of our souls
We know that nothing will separate us 
In this life or the next
Love

THE SNOWY CLIFFS WITH BOUFFANT BOULDERS

Even before the arrival of the first snows, so brilliantly candid, 
we climbed mounts less dangerous than the Alps's;
and we proudly chalked it up to our experience.
Now the snowy cliffs with bouffant boulders,
have lost their captious and so beatific image,
and quite too often we got pinched by burdock,
distracted by the robins chattering on a coarse descent;
I champed on crisp strawberries, while he challenged his strength.   



My buddy never castigated me for my bizarre behavior,
and I admired him for displaying  humor without repulsion, 
or retort, and with chisel and hammer we engraved faces of historic men
on the smoothest rocks which were replete with their handsomeness.
Those adventurous afternoons are repealed when we look up,
and recreate them through our Male Chauvinism, cheery not dumb;
we felt like cave men making rudimentary drawings of their hunted animals,
while their women picked wild chicory for an early dinner. 



Chums we were, resembling cowboys with wide hats in a chiaroscuro,
drinking in a bar filled with fashionable ladies frolicking and saying hello;
and chili con carne we ate, and plenty of beers to wash it down.
After our money was all squandered, our pockets were empty and we felt alone,
dazed...wobbling with fear, afraid to face our witless wives at home;
we were two idiots wooing empathy and some undeserving love.    
And didn't they seem two witches ready for vengeance in their frown,
trying to squeeze the truth out of our silent and pretentious mouths too fulsome?



Frost will bring winter soon, and the snowy cliffs with bouffant boulders will be covered,
our hair have turned almost white to match the bright color of the deep snows,
as this river is freezing up, to become a sheet of ice, where no boats or barges pass;
and we play chess, the intramural game of a confined life, without those clandestine affairs.
Our darlings approve with sweet intonation, intensifying their affection so amorous;
and we embrace them with that tenderness that they have long desired...
staring at the snowy cliffs with bouffant boulders that these two climbers made their own,
remembering the cold and the shivering...coming down to a valley of comfort and domain.

Blooming Love

Love is like a blooming rose
Everyday changing becoming more beautiful
It has thorns that make situations uncomfortable
Once you get past the problems life becomes bright agian
It grows because the sun as bright as the smile of the one you love
You keep each other grounded and focused much like the roots of the flower
All of these components keep it alive and all are vital for an undieing, beautiful love

Forgotten Love Found

Forgotten Love Found
Wildncrazy555
WLM
March 31, 2011

I thought she was lost
I did not know at what cost
She did not want me
So she let me be free
But now I have no more fear
For now she has returned here
Do I really know to see?
That she really does need and want me
For now I will think and just sit
This is her chance to prove it
I will truly be very strong
And she must show me that I was wrong
Should I let go of the slack
She must show me she wants me back
Will she really come and show 
If so my heart will have such a glow
As the sun is so hot and bright in the sky
I will lose all my fears and know why
I want to hold her so bad
And by doing so I will never again be sad
All my love I will give to her now
The amount she will never know how
We will make love for the first time
It will be so exciting and so extremely fine
I hope she will want me forever
If to be we will always be together
We will have to be till the end
This is the best time we can begin

Fear of Losing You

No longer affectionate, attentive, thoughtful eyes;
instead, an expressionless, invisible, blank stare.

No longer strolling hand-in-hand, carelessly;
instead, walking moonbeams apart, drifting like clouds.

No longer drowning in passionate, lingering kisses;
instead, an obligatory, awkward, fleeting peck.

No longer two hearts bow-tied with strings;
instead, reclusive, lonely hearts, in a noose.

No longer dreaming of a lifetime together;
instead, an uncertain, somber, painful future.

No longer a confident, loving wife;
instead, a heartsick, lonely, aging woman,

Desperately, afraid of losing you.

Antiquity Of Love

They sit together after supper, two forks, two plates -dishes cleared, put away. She, with her tiny spectacles perched a little crooked on her face -  he, with his favorite pipe. Her withered hands lay peacefully in her lap…he reaches out, gently touching them - not speaking any words. 

No words needed between the two of them-having been together for so many years. Memorable words, touching phrases spoken ore’ the years spent together as one. One heart - one mind. Not always a life of sunshine and roses, but devotions never ceased between these two old lovers, these two best friends. 

They held on to one another through each new day, each new tomorrow - catching one another’s loving gaze, uttering a graceful word now and then. Wrinkled faces beautifully bestow them now - yet to him…she’s just as lovely as the day they wed -his lovely bride - his cherished, sweet wife of many years. A smile creeps across his lips in remembering their cherished wedding vows. 

“Will you take this women to be your wife”? He did then, he still does now.

The words sweet and strong - like the fragrance of orchids… everlasting, forever long.

Blood, again

blood again 
-
The two hovering faces are white and brown.
They seem to look nice, saying, “we’re in your side.”
She aches; both her sides ache; bruises, clotted blood; 
She sees them, two men with the force; denies to complain.
The trust has been lying killed, somewhere in her den.

Discharge means returning home, to the fear’s room, 
where he may return for tearing her more.
But she won’t dial for force, at least not before 
she has put six inanimate hates into him;
not before she has seen blood once again, not hers.

A swallowed Cry

A Swallowed Cry

                                  The dawn is smothered in haze as I
                               watch the sun wrap with wings of gold
                                        I swallow a swallowed cry.

                                 As I watch his soul melt within the clouds
                                 my memory lingers of our two intertwining
                                    hearts sharing silk kisses I swallow
                                               A swallowed cry.

                                Nature is laughing with sweet serenades
                                 as I listen with the anchor of my soul.

                                My heart is tangled inside, Still waters run
                                deep, As broken promises lies my paradise
                                 my friendship is for keeps, yet you should
                                       Know I swallow a swallowed cry.

Ceremony of the Kiss

He gets to know her so they kiss.
He takes her home,
And they kiss.
He gives her a ring;
They kiss.
He lifts her veil;
They kiss.
He takes her home,
And they kiss.
He gets to know her as they kiss.

That Certain Part of the Male Anatomy

Today's society says,
"You're not a man
If you can't turn flesh to stone."
So drug after drug is manufactured
To make men feel like teens again.
"Bigger, longer, faster, stronger"
Is the motto of  this money game
With a pill, a caplet or capsule.
From porno stars to "Smiling Bob",
They convince man that drugs are the answer
To natural male enhancement-
All the while influencing addicts "once a day"
To ensure such lasting effects.

In yester years' society,
Abraham was dead in his body
And became the Father of many nations.
Sarah called him "lord" and made him feel
Better than any drug, and the benefit was hers, too.
In her old age she was satisfied with a child
And was blessed with laughter unspeakable.
She was his aphrodisiac, not a mistress with mandrakes.
Her spirit touched his emotions and effected his nature.
Maybe man could learn something from these saints
Instead of just desiring to be stiff and rigid.
Become addicted to love and each other.
"There is nothing to lose but to gain."

kiss,hugs, and tears

 U didnt whisper in my ear no u whispered to my heart.Not only did u kiss my lips but my soul right from the start.

The minute that u left a sickness took over my body.I stop beleiving everything real close to illuminati.

But I altered my attitude that altered out my life. I couldnt loose my future since I already lost my wife. 

I got back up on my feet and put my limits in the sky. People asked me if I could reached the I dont know was my reply.

 I found a way to smile and to stop being upset.Nothing improves memmories more than trying to forget.

I was doing better my mind was finely clear then I relapse nowhere u decide to reappear.

U brought life to all my nightmares illustrated all my fears. That loves start with a hug, grows with kisses ends with tears. 

I gave you everything I had I gave you good love and protection.U know that ur in love when a persons flaws look like perfection. 

Cant beleive u actually told me that u loved and didnt mean it. Cant beleive I was naive and dum to actually beleive it. 

I see once again and dont have words because Im scared. A broken heart will always heal but never be repaired.

Cant let go of people that u keep thinking about. Its me againts persuation and most likely Ill loose the bout. 

They say that no ones perfect but that everyone is great. u were already great became perfect what a trait. 

To learn means that u failed to fail means that u learned. Our love was just like hell and hell means that it burns. 

Still with all of that we facing off after the years. Fate is not quite as strange as it appears.

Sometimes we have to die ourselves to live for someone else. But with all the sacrificing u forget how to excell. 

God is a tought who makes the crooked all that straight. He has justification of our love that turn to hate.

Who knows when Ill get over u tomorrow or maybe never. But even though I love you say goodbye and leave forever.

Rest

His cherubim agenda rises seeking hungered skin. And how He muses, tantalizes with the merest whim. He leads me to a place where passion's river flows. Inviting all of me to taste honeyed milk repose. Hands become an an artist's brush painting my desire. This Song of Song's an arctic rush, birthing newborn fire. Rivaled by the sweetest wine, his lips become an ocean. Transporting freedom through my mind, lost in deeper notion. I want to pleasure more and more to taste; to feel, to yield. To find new ways, richly explore, what only lover's steal. Opening myself I'm led escorted by this flame. For this I know I have been bred, to hear Him speak my name. Lightening flashes in his eyes, takes me with the thunder. And suddenly I'm magnetized, to this spell I'm under. Can this be more than flesh inspired, willing heart to break? My Lord's Arms ; my Husband's Fire, the Dawn to which I wake.

Ode to Mr. Anonymous

The sweet sound of his voice,
filling the air.
Letting me know,
 He'll always be there,
The sweet smell of his breathe,
And his cologne that's so sweet.
Always seeming to knock me off my feet.
I see his sweet face.
I get lost in my thoughts.
He seems so perfect.
Like theres nothing  that could go wrong,
But as I sit and I think.
I keep on wondering, why?
How could this angel,
really be mine?
He's sweet and he's caring.
He reassures me his thoughts.
Making me feel like,
The happiest girl on the block.
I'll love Mr. Anonymous, 
Even when I'm gone.
I hope our love,
Forever flies on.

crying tears within my sight
Momma I will be your new baby blue
nothing else can be as true

You lost the love of your life last night
now I am here being held so tight
I promise you I will not try to run away
hoping that our love will not sway

I will always remain thy new born son
will remain so till thy days are done
I will always have a place close to thee
even though you must  set me free

Free to fly the world so blue and wide
always to remember you near my side
Daddys gone and it was not his fault
never to see the son you sought

The Wedding

As she prepares herself for the day of blessing,
She can hear these people singing,
The day of happiness,
The day of joy,
The day that is so gifted,
And not a soul can destroy.

This is the day she has been waiting for all her life,
The day he puts the ring on her finger,
To become his wife.

This day is filled with the smell of blossoms,
This wedding day will never be forgotten.

As she poses in the mirror,
She feels a shiver,
Forgetting the rest,
She questions herself,
Is this really happening?
Or am I imagining?
I’m sitting alone in this room,
Thinking,
Where is my Groom?

As they take her to be wed,
All she can think about all the things he said,
All the promises he made,
She can’t believe it,
They are being fulfilled today.

Not wanting to think about anything but him,
She knows her dreams are coming true.
She is ready to leave her past behind,
She doesn’t want to think about pressing rewind.

All those silly things she did as a kid,
She will for sure miss.
But, now she will began a new life,
Not thinking about the past,
She will put that aside.

After the day she gets wed,
She will have a whole new life ahead,
To promise to love and care for him until she dies,
She loves him with her heart and soul; she cannot deny.

You're Welcome

He thinks 

Well, he tries but he can't

At least not about anything but me

Linger

I do on his mind 


 

His body…

It trembles 

His eyes 

Cannot focus 

He is completely mine


 

How submissive

 

And it is amazing how he waits 

Uneasy 

For my next word


 

It could drive him over the edge 

He could possibly explode

Please explode

After All These Years Still IN LOVE

Still In Love...
My son came to me with 
a question on his mind.
I said; “Not now son—
I just don't have the time.”

He said, “Daddy—are you still 
in love with Mommy?”
“Do you love her like you did when 
I was in her tummy?”

My eyes choked with tears; 
“Yes son I really do!”
“I'm in love with her...
and I appreciate you.”

“Daddy—will you always love
me like you do mom?”
“Yes my son—my love for you 
will always belong.”

I looked down and much
to my surprise.
There were tears running
down my sons's eyes.

He came running to me with 
his arms wide open.
“Thank you daddy” were his words spoken.

I picked him up and gave
him a great big hug.
As I let him down, on my shirt I felt a tug.

His little arm reached up to grab my hand.
I knew that what I said,
he began to understand.

I love his mom so much—my wonderful wife.
She's been such a blessing-
a great part of my life!

Wounded

Lonely and alone, single now with the children my only comfort and yet a reminder.
The divorce a tug of war between me and her for what once was mine, I thought.
My heart lies languid and still a deep dark mountain pool, without flutter or ripples.
The waves and white water emotions will come flooding in after dark.
Our little ones must not glimpse in me the ugly cuts and scars of your infidelity. 
 I force myself into our once cramped now too empty bed.
 I can now cry quietly in solitude for love and affection like a wounded animal.
I silently scream to be touched, to be reached for, and to be desired.
I miss you I still love you I would forgive you I still want you, Joe where are you?
I hide in the shadows of my despair, dream of killing her, torturing painfully and slowly?
I’ll be gouging out her eyes with one degrading glare a smile and a snicker.
I’m gutting her slowly with only the nightly beckoning of my little finger.
A tryst in the Sykes parking lot in the back seat of our car inches from your son’s safety seat.
Pass a silent gift a potential killer and ruin her womanhood and child bearing potential, almost taking her life.
Rip apart her family with whispered AM phone calls and PM come hither stares.
Strip her self-esteem and ego depositing them without remorse in a blender set to puree.
I would do to her all that she has done to me and more, I am lonely, alone, single now and only them to thank.
  

                                                                 Summer Gratias

Husband or Wife

Days living in
my mind itself
made life feel frozen
        a hell
Loneliness of one

When we first met
I did not realize
it would be you
I would marry
A choice that has 
pleased me in every way

It is hard for me
to remember the sadness
Those days in hell
for you kissed my tears 
into laughter
Making each day
warm with heart
A day in heaven
a lifetime of love

Shhhhhhh

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

A ROYAL'S QUERULOUS DEBATE

The curtain slowly rises...the audience is spell-bound
by the appearance of royalty

Act 1, Scene 1

King Henry VIII: O adored wife, you never drew
another man to your breasts;
have I loved you more or less?

King Henry VIII: O voluptuous lips that have kissed mine,
when roses spurred to greatness,
is your trust in me flimsy or fortified?

Queens Katherine: Why are you asking me this,
beloved husband, if the promise
of that young virgin was more than true?
I have desired your strong arms around me,
to dispel my fears and doubts on many moonless and frightening nights...
when the northern wind ruthlessly entered in the chambers,
and blew out all the candles that were more aromatic than columbines!
O dearest love, which need I didn't provide you by touch? 

King Henry VIII: No, sweeheart everything you offered me,
but lust for another woman led me astray...
leaving your marital bed and sneaking away!

Queen Katherine: O dishonorable husband, what made you so unfaithful...
if I made you the vessel of these dreams,
to transport me on soft waves like cherubs' wings?  

King Henry VIII: Not enough passion in love-making, insensible wife...
permitting your guilt prevent the pleasure 
I sought in every embrace and intimate feeling,
to boost this amorous ego without ending!

Queen Katherine: How dare you say that, unmeritous husband...
while your attention was focused on a mistress?

King Henry VIII: How can you blame me, uncaring wife...
making me escape and causing me to cheat?

Queen Katherine: This marriage took place under the eyes of the  Almighty,
and you solemnly swore to honor me,
to love me, to strengthen me and to spend a lifetime
of joys, of hopes and sorrows through love and fidelity!

Let's Keep Marriage STRONG


Let’s Keep Marriage Strong! In marriages, we often fail to Be take time to communicate… To be honest with each other… Truthful and straight! In each other… We need to look for the BEST! And not treat each other like a “pest.” We don’t need to speak words that’ll cause harm… But to love each other with an opened arm! May we serve one another with compassion and love! Knowing we were brought together from God above! Just think about the first day you were wed… Remember the words; “I love you” were often said! We need to keep marriages together no matter the cost! Divorce leads to so much tragedy and a huge loss! By Jim Pemberton

Are You Having An Affair

I don't think many people 
are aware...
of the dangers of having 
"an affair."

Adultery begins with a lustful thought 
captured in the mind.
It's been part of sins's curse,
 since the beginning of time.

Many aren't sure how they're
 going to react.
Until the day they're caught
 in an adulterous act.

By this time... they're love for
 their spouse is broken.
When the words; "I love you"...
 to another... are spoken.

Soon... their home become 
"turned around" and divided.
As their commitment and loyalty 
become undecided.

The family soon become "
one huge mess..."
As the love "for another person" 
becomes "obsessed."

You may find yourself in this 
kind of situation.
Perhaps you're in 
 "deep desparation."

Run from this person as 
fast as your can!
Come to the cross and 
reach for Jesus' hand!

Confess your sin to your spouse
 and call on Jesus' name.
You have only yourself... 
no one else... to blame.

Allow Jesus to 100% be 
the Lord of your life.
As you brings you together 
as husband and wife!

Let him restore your marriage 
and make it complete.
Come to him now and 
lay your sin at his feet.

His love in your marriage is 
forever and binding!
His commitment to you is 
a love worth finding!

Loving You

As i've gotten to know you, I've fallen in love with you more than expected. I guess it's the 
way you are to me, I feel protected. The way you touch me so gentle and dear, it shows 
your affection, so perfectly clear. The way you enter my body and touch my soul. To me is 
this is something I had never known. There's so many things that you cause me to feel, so I 
know without a doubt that our love is real. When I see your face, I can't help but grin. On a 
scale from 1 to 5, I give you a ten. Your not just my man, your one of my best friends. I love 
you baby, and thats the truth, it drives me crazy to be so far from you. I want to be with you 
for the rest of my life, I want to have your kids and be your wife. But for right now all I can 
say is "I LOVE YOU" baby and I hope you feel the same way.

I DO

Like Alice in wonderland
I'll be Ann on magicland
And with my wand
It'll all be mine

Strokes of hope
Want to elope
And whoop
They will be mine

Warrant me the grace
To speed up the pace
Till i look him in the face
When we win the race

And the heart of gold
Engraved in my soul
Shall mine forever be
Till eternity doth part us.

I Do

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

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

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

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

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

The Power of Words

A, B, and C 
These letters won’t do you justice 
But when I use these letters to create word that can describe your mind and body 
I am able to set fire to your senses that command you’re every thought 
 As you sit here and read this your able to feel as I feel tell that even the complexity of this 
poem 
Show you that I can express my feeling even though the words on this page
The words that I can use to describe your body firstly
Powerful Words like soft, beautiful, smooth, divine
Then we can use technical terms like I can run my hands over your Gluteus maximum
Or over your Pectorals Major where your mammary glands are held 
The power in words can make you even forget the world around you
Words as simple in complexity as love and hate can have an endless amount of meanings
But when these simple world are use to describe you and me the world that comes to mind is
Great!!!!
This word can say that our relationship knows no limits the way we can express the feeling that 
comes over us
The way I can wake up and still feel you next to me even when hundreds of miles away from 
each other
As I get to this point in the poem I can feel that you want to cry  
Because of this overwhelming expression of feelings someone has never had for you can come 
out in only one page.
Well my love I just show you THE POWER OF WORDS

You Are My Beloved

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

History of the Pretzel

Your bedtime prayers
Coupled with the right Scriptures
Yield "pretiolas"

To tie the knot with...
Thick, soft "bretzels" are folded
Like arm over arm.

Hard, brown pretzel twists
Are more than little rewards-
Sweet licks, salty bites...

once longing love

This time your eyes don't seem to bare the familiar strength
you been staying away from me you've gone to every length
i did every thing i could to lend a helping hand
now your broken and its hard to under stand
this was no ones plan love makes harsh demands

even though i can see your heart is truly broke
when i tried to hold you i was just a joke
now things are changed nothing like before
i have become something so much more
a ache still nags deep within my core a life left in ashes spread upon the floor

i wonder where you ll go who you ll see
i wonder if the only thing you think about is me
the empty hole of things left unsaid
a wall of noise stands strong in my head
some how this feel like I'm dead but I'm watching in you go instead

how many times could i try to be the one you needed but i know it was the ego i feed ed
a callous soul without any notion of truth hope or devotion
farewell my once longing love

Untitled

If I try for you, will you try for me?
Will you make me smile as I do to you? 
surprise me with something you know will put a smile on my face? 
Will you fall in love with me again, as I have with you? 
Or will you speak empty words that mean something to me but nothing to you? 
Will you be the man you want to be for us? 
Accept the unique design of your other half? 
Tell me what would you do to make sure I'm always going to be there? 
Beauty fades with time and all that is left is what captivates you. 
So will I be the one that lights up a crowded room? 
The beauty that sticks out amongst the rest? 
Or just another pit stop in your road to success?

Our Doorway Delight

I sit at work
Wishing all day
Newly married
Images, in my mind displays
 
As i finish work
I head off home
An hour away
My minds in roam
 
I picture my girl
At the door she awaits
Her bouquet of scent
My loving soul mate
 
Into our drive i turn
As she catches my eye
Scantly dressed
Revealing thigh
 
Silky robe
Shoulders bare
Azure blue eye's
In wanting stare
 
Bleep, bleep
Car's locked
Were face to face
Our lips are docked
 
Buttons popping
Dishevelled clothes
Our doorway delight
As our passion grows
 
Our bodies dance
In sensuous song
Inner merge
Bonding strong
 
Joys reached
In doorway bliss
The door closes
For another wish

The Man Of My Dreams

When I was fifteen, I met the man of my dreams
The man I wanted to spend the rest of my life with
When I look at him, my heart still races
It is when we go to sleep at night
that I realize how wonderful this man really is
As we lay together, I watch him drift off to sleep
As I look at him, I see a sensual kind of softness
I listen for every breath and watch every movement
I run my fingers over his chest
twisting the hair gently around my fingertips
I kiss his cheek softly so as not to wake him
The smell of his cologne makes me tremble
I am so in love with this man 
He has such a caring heart
Everything he does, he does with so much love
He is the most wonderful man I have ever known
As I drift off to sleep, I thank God above
For giving me this wonderful man to love
He is my husband and my best friend
He is the man of my dreams

Odious

An unloved woman
Is married to a mean ghost
She sees not nor feels.

Terrorizing her
And haunting another house,
He is like the wind.

Earth reels with tremblings
As his spirit takes a maid;
It can not bear it.

Now so repugnant,
She wonders in mystery
And is supplanted.

What predicaments
Caused spurn and frequent visits 
Of horrific love?

Love Me

Love me now
Love me today

Wait not, 
for tomorrow
Tomorrow waits, 
today waits not!

Let me know, today,
you love me
show me, today,
you will love me, tomorrow

Let today be the beginning,
of tomorrow, 
let it be the beginning,
of always and for ever

Let me hear, today,
in the warmth of your breath,
in the rhythm of your heart;
you love me, today,
and will, tomorrow, 
beginning today

Let me see, today, 
in your quiet countenance, 
in the flame of your eyes,
bright as lightening,
on a rainy night,
yet tender,
as a gentle flame;
like a candle in the wind,
with a guardian angel,
watching over it;
holding back the wind

Let me feel, today,
your love, soothing, 
as the morning sun

Let me hear, today,
your love,
rolling off your tongue,
flowing from your lips, 
to my heart;
in the melody of your voice,
sweet and gentle,
as a breeze on a mountain top,
in a quiet autumn night,

Let it flow, today,
gentle as a quiet river,
running deep and steady

I mind not, if it comes,
a mighty rushing wind,
only not a trade wind,
here today, gone tomorrow

I mind not, if it is hot,
molten lava, 
from the volcano top,
only boiling slowly

When it cools, 
may it not, 
turn into a stumbling block,
not a rolling stone

But a cornerstone,
stable and able,
weathering the elements,
enduring time, 
through today, 
till tomorrow;
for eternity

The First Time

The first time we made love I cried and I was in heaven
When I first seen you I fall Head over hills in love with you
The first time we kissed and I milted

You are the first man that I loved that loved me back
We had our problems in the passed but we made it through them
We had our first big fight for the first time but it made us stronger then ever

Six year together and sill going strong 
You and I are one and will be for Thirty six more years to come
The first day you gave me the ring I fall in love with you all over again 

You are the first man that I would ride or die for 
You are like a drug habit I get so high when I am with you 
We are closer now then we ever was 

For the first time when I am in you are I feel Safer then ever 
You are the first am that I talk about getting marred to
When that day comes I will feel like I am falling in love for the first time

When we make love it feels like we are making love for the first time
I never want to hart you 
You are the love of my life 
 I will cater to your every need 
Any thing you need me to do I will do
You also make me feel like a real woman

To Antwan I love you so much

Beauty Is In the Eye of the Beholder

Oh, was it really possible that we’d ever pen, or 
is it necessary to debate our in-sensitivities, 
the ups and downs of life, being sandwiched between
our likes and dislikes of a certain form in writing?

To a degree, of versifying, we have the so-called 
“To each his own” ability
and power to attract the readers of the mind,
to fully enjoy us, in our chosen form. 

Some would profess they dislike haiku
...’cos of its shortness and simplicity
and most likely, many would prefer free verse,
than to listen to the enchanted soul of rhyme

...’Cos of its un-metered style and absolute freedom;  
yet I, the handsome I (ahem!) do love, not prefer 
the beholder of my beauty, my beautiful wife (ahem!)---
a thousand times over, and greater than those few.

Ahh, the exquisite beauty of poetry, 
the subtle meaning half hidden 
in ones’ lines, and totally not seen in its form
but most certainly, lies in the eye of the reader.

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.

The Power of Love

The power of love holds the battleground. 
Nuclear blasts from sea to sea. 
Wait and you will see!
Begging, kicking, and screaming:
Pleading, “Give it to me”!
Standing on God’s ground, defended by the armor and shield melting.

The power of love holds the mystery.
Things are never as they seem.
Do the means meet the extremes?
Where, how, when was I?
Wondering if it was only a dream? 
Standing on God’s ground, defeated by the lock that obtains that key.

The power of love carries the only prayer.
Time to come and be done.
Soon you will be the one.
Dead, black, despair:
Hoping, will someone hear?
Standing on God’s ground, lost in the dream in which you begun.

Make Her Cry by Kenny Davis

Make Her Cry by Kenny Davis

I don’t want to make HER cry of frustration
Giving HER a feeling of constant irritation

I don’t want HER to cry from my unloving actions
For HER, me becoming an overwhelming distraction

Causing HER to steadily lose HER attraction
Giving HER reasons to have many angry reactions

I don’t want HER to cry because I fail to be HER crutch
Someone for HER to lean on when life becomes too much

I don’t want HER to cry because I fail to come home
In bed with someone else, leaving HER all alone

I want HER to cry from utter happiness
For when I hold HER in my arms, SHE feels truly blessed

I want HER to cry from when I show HER acts of love
A love much like the one that falls from above

I want HER to cry when SHE lies on my shoulder
To comfort and embrace, the way I know how to hold HER

For times, for HER, when the world becomes a little colder
SHE will trust me to love HER the way that I have told HER

I want HER to cry from knowing that I will always be there
Knowing that I will never fail to love, that I will always care

I want HER to cry for all of the right reasons
For our happiness together is only our blessing in due season

Knight-abd-Shining Armor

If you sit beside me
Perhaps you will see

Life is but a dream
Life is full of wonder

And beautiful
Mysterious things

My life is splendid
And lovely to my dismay

It is not without blemish
It is not perfect or in a regretful way

My life is full of golden peaks
Made of heart and soul

An abundance of love
Unselfish and whole souled

In the prime of my life
A humble man set my soul afire

He is my saving grace
My knight-and-shining armor

All these days
You have loved me tenderly

You help fill a childhood void
You love me unconditionally

You love me wholeheartedly
You love me unselfishly

You are compassionate
Sympathetic and kind

You are affectionate
And never to tire of me

I will love you
Eternally

Are YOU Having An Affair

God Gave Me His Love...  I Wouldn’t Share It!

God gave me his love.  I wouldn’t share it!
The guilt I feel now. 
I can’t hardly bear it!

He gave to me blessings and a peace within.
He gave to me joy and a chance to be his friend!

He asked that I give to others what I received.
His life for others is what he’s achieved!

When God needed me, I tried to run and hide.
I was filled with selfishness and pride!

Though I had accepted him 
and was born again…
I wasn’t interested in 
reaching souls for HIM!

Deep inside me there was a voice
 that began to stir!
Christ helped me to have
  Victory so true and secure!

He helped me with his words of love spoken…
I wanted to be his vessel! Not just a “token.”

His spirit is with me each day that I live!
I want others to know of his power to forgive!

Won’t you share the love that he’s given to you?
Won’t you give back to the one
 who truly LOVES YOU?

His love is everlasting and hard to contain!
You’ll find all that you need 
when you call on his name!

Under The Mistletoe (Adult Content)

As the Temptations "Silent Night" plays on the stereo
       I pull you close, Kiss your nose under the mistletoe....

       We sit by the warm cozy fireplace.  I listen to you talk and stare at your gorgeous face.  
A pallet on the floor, you lift your glass for me to pour.  A bottle of Chardonnay from 
Singapore.
       A romantic evening by the fire with sensual conversation.  You see in my eyes my 
appreciation.  I lean into you smelling sweet champagne.  Your eye contact is driving me 
insane.
       I know you can hear the thumping of my racing heart.  Our lips hover just a fraction of 
an inch apart.  Damn I'm proud to have you as my lady.
       Softly you say "What cha want for Christmas baby?"  The perfect Christmas gift for 
me?  How bout you naked under my Christmas tree?  Or you wearing only a big red bow!  
And so under these Christmas lights making passionate love beneath the mistletoe.  You 
already know my M.O.  You whimpering, gasping in my ear to go slow.  Moving, grinding, in 
and out of your halo.  Wow you leave my heart aglow.  So beautiful you are like works of 
Van Gogh!
       This Christmas we will make "Christmas Carols" under the mistletoe!!!

Charity

If I had the ability to comprehend,
All languages around the earth and;
Have not charity for my neighbors,
What good would I be worth?
If my faith could move the highest of mountains,
Also all my mysteries I understood;
If I show no love to those who “despitefully” use me,
I would not be any good.
If I used all my possessions,
To help the unfortunate (not expecting gain);
Gave my body without sincerity,
Then my work would be in vain.
Authentic love is to sacrifice,
Is not jealous and does not boast;
Since it truly comes from the heart,
It will extend from coast to coast.
Does not enjoy unlawful doings,
Loves to hear spiritual facts;
Not always aiming to please ones self,
Endures all short coming acts.
For the mysteries and philosophies,
That we presently comprehend;
Along with all the knowledge and understanding,
It will come to an end.
For the knowledge we know is part,
Moreover, the mysteries we understand are some;
Yet when the “TRUMP OF GOD” has sounded,
Only then shall we know that the “PERFECT” has come.
When I was young I was immature,
I thought I knew all things;
Still when Jesus became Lord of my life,
I put away those immature things.
Think on these things and endure without yielding,
These words of inspiration and clarity;
However, with the gifts, Charity, Hope and Faith,
Remember, the greatest is Charity.

Do I Fit in Your Future

I’m not sure how to ask this,
But I’ve got to know,
So I’m just going to ask
Do I fit in your future?
Do you see me with wrinkles,
Still believing that I’m as beautiful
 As the first day we met?
Do you I fit in your future?
Do you see yourself loving me
No matter who or what
I may possibly become?
Do I fit in your future?
Knowing I may never
Be exactly what you
May want me to be?
Do I fit in your future?
Even if you may not
Really even see
A future for yourself?
Do I fit in your future?
It’s probably a lot
Of me to ask of you
But still I’ve got to know
Do I fit in your future?

I Love You

I love you
I never really knew you
You were just another friend
But when I got to know you,I let my heart bend.
I could'nt help my past memories that would make me cry
I had to forget my first love and give love another try
So i've fallen in love with you andI'll never let you go
I love you more than anyone, I just had to let you know
And if you ever wonder why,I don't know what I'll say
But i will never stop loving each and everyday
My feelings for you will never change, just know my feelings are true
Just remember one thing........
I LOVE YOU !!!!!

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.

Forever mine


I am hypnotized by the glimpse in the windows that are your eyes, 
The masculine lines that create your face.
The precise detail put into your body that make you a golden prize.
I am addicted to the creation that gods have worked so hard to form. 
The dimples when you smile the hint of hazel in your brown eyes that appear as if lovers intertwined in a dance of 
romance & seduction. 
I remember every detail. 
I admire every mistake. 
I watch every move. 
And in moments I fall in love again. 
Speak to me and show me the world through magnificent eyes 
That dream of wealth happiness and other things you fantasize.
Immobilize me with your touch and whisper sweet nothings in my ears to silence the body.. 
Let me breath in your skin. 
Taste the essence of you. 
I am In love. 
I am afraid. 
I am addicted. 
I am so many things. 
I am his. And he... 
He is forever mine

Partnerships

Several weeks of flirting,
Two back massages,
Asking for a date,
Trip to dinner and Wal-Mart,
Sneak of a kiss over shoulder,
Asking for a second date,
Several dating times,
More kisses and hugs,
Flowers on birthday,
Remembering date of first date,
Valentines Day flowers,
Special poem for her,
Asking for hand
Wedding day,
Remembering special dates,
Saying those words,
I love you!

Cigarette is so good
I  inhale deep
I want to feel it
like I felt you, 
burnin
but baby, to make myself better
I gotta stop feelin you
I long for the drink
always dreaming of you
pick up the phone
come too far though
can't throw it all gone
love, I just won't
I just keep, keepin on
I'm wierd, I'm better
I feel guilty
I can't explain why
I just need a little bit
a little bit better life
always, we understood each other
so, maybe you'll understand
I Love You

SO DEAR TO MY HEART

SO DEAR TO MY HEART


So dear to my heart are my loved ones at home
As I toss and I turn in my bunk all alone.
Everyday I see death, hate, and corruption
Combat is God’s proof of man’s malfunction

For family, comrades, and myself I pray
To my love with this poem I wish to convey.
I knew I loved you though never how much
Till by war, I’m forced beyond your touch.

Where violence thrives, there’s the stench of death
With the taste of fear on every breath.
Who shall prevail, who shall die
As the sadistic kill beneath God’s sky.

Baghdad has become man’s highway to hell
Where the hearts of darkness are alive and well,
I count each day till it’s time to come home 
And be with my love and never alone.

Love You
Your Marine

The Hurricane

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

Caste Of A Man

I can’t use just any cauldron
To cast what I behold
The core must be made molten
As my legacy unfolds...
Adding substance to the fire
Heats my precious ore
Impurities trade flames entire
Soul until no more...
Courage added to the mixture
Hardens into gold
Add morals and a holy scripture
For the house he holds...
When he stands without the frame
I start to pour again
So he can pass more than his name
To copies after him...

The Color Beautiful

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

Soul To Keep

The ceremony was a joke, 
The bride didn't wear white. 
We were married by Spok,
On the outskirts of Vegas that night.
You wore your tripp pants,
I wore my black corset boots.
Because nothing else mattered,
But being with you. 

The rain started to fall,
The stars really came down.
As you gave me your jacket, 
And spun me around. 
It had finally happened,
We were finally married.
We sped down the road in my hearse,
With Joy Division blaring.

We drank our insides dry, 
We hit every bar. 
And pulled the car over,
To make love under the stars. 
With fake I.Ds in our pockets, 
We fell far from grace. 
I made a point when we got home,
To throw rice in your face.

The bills grew up, 
And we did too.
With every fight and dollar earned.
We lost the innocence of youth.
And everytime we walked out on this, 
We found our way back home.
Though every ambulance ride, 
We never woke up alone.

And still to this day,
Before we go to sleep.
As I lay down beside you.
I give to you my soul to keep.

Come Away with Me

Come away with me…
to a place that’s safe and warm,
where love abounds and none can harm;
to a place where clear blue waters meet hot white sand,
where we can stroll together forever, hand-in-hand.

Come away with me…
to a place where dreams take flight,
and they don’t disappear with the night;
to a place where crashing waves serenade 
lovers lying in a hammock in the shade.

Come away with me…
to a place where we can be free,
where you can be you, and I can be me;
to a place of dancing in the rain,
where we can leave behind all the world’s pain.

Come away with me…
to a place where our bodies become one,
on a blanket under the stars or under the sun;
to a place of no secrets, no regrets,
where forgiveness lives and hurt forgets.

Come away with me…
to a place where bodies entangle in passion’s embrace,
where gazes linger and wild hearts race;
to a place of ecstasy, joy and peace,
where fireworks explode, oh sweet release!

Come away with me…
where no one else can be,
a place reserved for just you and me.
Just hold me tight, get lost in a kiss;
for in that moment is where this place exists.

In Tell Your Eyes

In tell your eyes, 
Wanting to resign from staring.
Your snore sings me a lullaby, or 
Is it you know just when to cuddle up.

Combined audio presence of us at night, 
When all is quiet, we experience passion,
Sharing the days intimate rashon, with sweat,
And heavy breathing, in telling by your smile,
That you just might beat me in scrabble.

Guess who love you, with my hands 
Over your eyes, knowing I just rushed home to 
My sunrise, I try to demonstration,
A display of excitement in a variety of always. 

Your warmth, that laugh, 
I’m now on a boat over the tears I cried.
You just sign, when I want to become combative.
It suddenly makes me feel really stupid, 
Because all I’ve said just rushed back.

I love you, for all the wrong and right reasons.
Even when you promise something you can’t keep,
It pisses me off often, but I’m smitten with your smell,
Right before you get into the shower.

Can it be, that I can be a good women for you
I asked it as I walked to work,
You walked in the opposite direction,
After a kiss, 
That gave me a hint 
That we wouldn’t be playing 
Scrabble tonight…

Friday

Always Friday has been
my favorite day;
not Saturday with
its frantic pace, 
or Sunday with Monday's 
anticipation, 
but Friday with 
Saturday's full potential
awaiting, like 
standing at the door 
of Westminister Abbey,
not having any idea 
what will lie on the
other side but
feeling it will be grand.
But when inside it is
too much, too complicated
with its high arching
ceilings, too high
to make out the fine details.

When you were away, 
Wanting you was wonderful,
imagining a chance meeting,
a close warmth behind me 
and I would turn and 
smell your heat
not touching but standing
so close my nipples swell and
stretch to you with longing.

But then you came back and
Watching you drink
and watching you sleep,
I knew there was something there
I didn't understand like the
fine details in the high arches
of the cathedral and my
Friday dreams were flattened
in the dull thud of Saturday's 
lost potential.

Breathe Together

“Together Breathe”
I look away when
You speak to me,
Trying to pretend that
I’m listening but I’m not,
I’m such a snot!

I’m in my head,
Thinking to myself

I’m holding on to
Your every word,
I want to play,
Wanting to please you,
Want to make sure that I say
Just that right thing
That you want me to say
Each day.

Where do we connect?
How do we meet
Each other’s needs?
How do we plant our seeds
And do good deeds?
How do we
Together breathe.

My Dear, I tell you in words, that I love you true.
Sometimes I feel that is not enough, just for you.

So I am writing this letter in rhyme from my heart.
Though I show you, I love you, on every days start.

This is not sufficient, for one that gloriously divine.
Adequate expressions are lost to describe, .love of mine.

Gifts unavailable to express, all that I have received.
My Dear, delivering my treasures, completely as conceived.

Each night my goal, to slowly fulfill your expectations,
Together our souls; will discover such exploitations.

Building Obsessed

BUILDING OBSESSED
 
How your hand caressed a building,
like it was your shapely lover.
 
How wet tears in your eyes collected 
and dropped like raindrops
at the demise of the Twin Towers,
not for the people inside but for
the noble structures themselves.
 
When we looked at your developed
pictures together almost all of them
would be of buildings, hardly any had
people in them at all.
 
Morning, noon and night
that's all you had on your mind
and in your sight was buildings.
 
You were obsessed!

Welcome to Your Wife

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

Incredible as all of this may be,
And just as brilliant as our fate is,
You are my unique lift to my wiz!
So it looks like it is you or it’s me.
 
We’re in the winds and we both run free.
All of this is hers and it’s every bit of his.
Those two are master blasters put to quiz.
Together they locked eyes eternally to see.
 
They are dancing on the Moon,
Or they are singing to the Sun.
Their love has come too soon.
Now familiar renewal has begun.
 
They are in full bloom with a force that is most incredible to blossom,
What a glimmer in their glare they sand blasted out of awe to awesome!

Unconditional love

“Unconditional Love”
Waiting 
Wanting, lusting
To be held,
To be respected,
To be loved 
To feel your warmth 
To feel your desire to be with me
Knowing that you feel the same way for me as I do for you
Hoping that you would fill all my desires and inner fire that burns
for you deep inside my heart I new that are love was flawless from the start
I need to be sheltered from the cold sometimes I feel as if there is nowhere for me to go 
Into your arms is were I want to be to smell your scent or feel your touch these things they mean so much.
The way that you make me feel is something I cannot explain it’s like a passionate kiss or making love in the rain. When I look into your eyes I know that you truly love me and that there is no other place you would rather be.
Without you there would be no me this should be so plain to see 
So how dare them to even try to compare, they act like they no but have no clue how much it is that I love you.

Palms by the Sea

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

Locked Away

My husbands actions locked with my soul and remained at our frount door,
He reenlisted again and had left for the Afganistan war.
My eyes became swollen the tears begain to pour.
Then all of a sudden, for some reason, one day I wasn't mad at him anymore.
I inwardly waited to hear his keys rattle and his duffle hit the floor.

In Name Only


She said I do.
She did not want to,
But now it is too late.
A ceremony,
A ring, a signed contract
And witnesses congregate.

She has his name;
He has not her heart.
They sealed it with a kiss.
He's hateful and mean.
She's a beautiful queen
Who suffered long with this.

She found someone
That loves her heart,
And she also loves him.
But they have children,
And both are married.
This comes between them.

She's in shackles;
He's in chains,
They struggle to be free.
Their bond so strong
Can't be explained away
Like a tossing sea.

They've built a house
Where they wait to live
No matter how long it takes.
She has his heart
But not his name;
For this moment he aches.

FALLING

What alchemy is at work here
That makes the gut a home for butterflies? 
What compels the pulse too quicken so?
Or the cheeks to glow with just a whisper, of a thought of you?
What chemistry Has filled my head with you?
And made the days smell fat with smiles And honeydew?
Yet what force stops and holds me back?
Is it that the pain of love is greater than the lack?
I am scared of the possibilities,
And the numerous ways in which I can break,
I am scared of falling, and not landing on my feet
But in some head over heals, Cliché,
Love will save the day, Sort of way,
Loves poison is strong stuff,
And I am scared of falling
Ill.

If You Should

If you should fall
I will be there to pick you up

If you should cry
I will be there to wipe your tears

If you should hurt
I will be there to comfort you

If you should talk
I will be there to listen

If you should love
I will be there to love you

Forever-Part 3

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

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

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

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

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

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

My Lover My Friend

Where were you my love when I wore my frown?
When my mind and heart were completely down,

Matters not, now where you were those days,
All that matters now, how I feel in many ways,

A smile that sweetens my day and night so pure,
Words that you whisper, raptures my demure.

One touch of your hand lures me awake.
Your kiss, so soft, warm like a summer lake,

When we touch in love our bodies in tune,
Our passion secured, embodied in the moon.

We walk each hour holding hands, feeling secure.
Our sanctity guaranteed, forever love insured.

My lover, my friend, confident forever more,
Entwined, sensually bound, in fantastic allure.

So Good

A comfortable sound; is found in the pews
 	Illuminated, we are feeling the Good News
As this providence is caught alive
	All tempestuous thoughts of transgressors subside
Hallelujah, HE brings divine will for all of us too…
	It is so good to hear the sweet sounds from the pews

Never-Never Land

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

' Your Touch Is Like ... '

Your Touch Is Like …

… Fire and Ice Combined
Or Feeling Raindrops, for First Time
Or Like, Swaying, Tropic-Jungle-Vines
Blown Gently In The Breeze, Entwined

Or Like, Ivy … Upon A Trellis-Climb
Or Like, Sunflowers, Reaching Sunshine
Or Like, Geniuses, Meeting Of Minds
Or Shakespeare, Tennyson, and Poe, Rhymes

Your Touch Is Like, A Discovery Of Mine
Like Piano-Keys, That Only I, Should Find
Tho’ Only God’s Touch Is Divine
Your Touch, Is Quite Sublime …

Your Touch Is Like, An Invisible-Bind
Your Touch Is, So Alive and Genuine
Like … An Electric-Livewire-Line
Or Like … Seeing A Shooting-Star- Sign
 Like … Its Fire and Ice Combined …

… Fingers Trail, Like The Blaze Of A Comet
Behold … The Iceman Cometh
Oh, Your Touch Is Like A Mountain-Summit
I Wish, That I Could Superglue-It
 
… I Like, That Your Touch Is Like … A Duet
And I Like, That You Sure Knew-It…

GoodBye

So confused,
Not knowing what to do?
I love you so much,
But I love him too.

Most of the time;
All we ever do is fight,
I really don't have a clue,
On how to make it right?

I want to be with you,
But he is never off my mind,
I'm sorry that I am hurting you,
I'm sorry i'm that kind.

Why do i still love my Ex?
I ask myself everyday,
I have you now,
But I just want to hold him and say,

I miss you so much,
You are the love of my life,
I want to be with you forever,
I want to be your wife.

He would never hurt me,
Curse at me or lie,
So that is why I have to say,
I'm sorry and Good-Bye.

To Be With You

To be with the one you love!
To know that it is right!
To be with the one and only person that has stolen your heart!
Knowing that this will last!
Praying that our love only grows stronger!
Knowing in your heart that it will!
Being with your one and only through thick and thin!
That only makes what we have stronger!
To know that no matter what his love will always be there!
For him to know that his love is returned!

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

I NEED YOU

I want someone to love innocently
I want to look after someone caringly
I want that one to be all mines
I also want to feel like lost in a whine

Someone to hold my hand when I tremble
Someone to protect when I am in trouble
Someone for the shoulder when I cry 
Someone to cry when I die 

I need someone to smile for
I need someone to stop crying for
I sometimes want to laugh without reasons
I have the desire to enjoy the beauty of seasons 

I want someone to love till last
I want someone for whom I can fast
Someone to realize the pain behind my smile
Someone to shout at without a reason for a while 

Someone to scold me rightfully
Someone to mould my mistakes drastically
Someone to get hilarious sarcastically 
Someone to make me happy willingly

I want him to feed me when I am hungry
I want him to make me smile when I am angry
I want him to tease me around mischievously
I want him to hide playfully

i want someone to love more than myself
I want someone to hug me without reason
I need someone to walk with
I want a reason to live

I need you for the reasons 
I NEED YOU FOR MY LIFE!

The Sun

The sun, moon and the stars come together for us.
My family encompasses the universe through my eyes.
The sun is my first born.
The moon is the light that shines brightly from my lovers embrace.
The stars gather in a planetary alignment which is our love.
The sun rises and falls each day.
The moon casts a glow over the city at night.
The stars dance in the midnight sky.
The sun, moon and the stars come together for us.

forgive the tide of my prism with its ruthless desire

and make delight in the warming of  vacuums, that softly a wait

Not Tonight

Just awaking in me to be something other than what I appear to be.
Placement productivity, because this is what I appear to be.
That sublime stature, of open emptiness, and lustful matter.
 That, 
“I keep it from you because I care”. 
You don’t want to appear harsh and unyielding, 
In your shielding the fact that you love another,
And I’m cool with that.

You see… I want something else tonight, 
Not to be the apprentice, to your significant other, I want something you never 
dare offer.
Incurable senitivity, showmanship ambition for me, a guaranteed,
Place in your heart, 
A place where I can lay,
In your mind, with room, and space to grow,
No… that’s right I don’t want sex tonight!

You might think we’re still living in the moment,
But we’ve been planning this all along; spontaneity was never an official issue,
Because it’s me, I don’t want the second seat, 
I don’t want to be turn into the “old biddy” teaching live seminars “for the sure-fire 
way to monogamy”.
So go home, run for that bus,
Catch that train,
 Before you miss that plane, because i don’t want sex tonight.

That touch I yearned for, was never the speeding ryhme, but that steal comfort 
that it’s going to last unequivocal.  
If I walk a hundred paces in from you, I don’t to have to worry.
And hurry back, because i can’t trust the silence any longer.
Play with my ears, the looking me in my eyes, kissing me with intensity, 
Is liable to increase my faith in us.

I want more, than appears to be here,
Devotion, extra attention, words that can send warm voltage,
To my senses
You have it in you; I just know that’s not for me now.

So I love you, I do, okay, but your sex don’t make me safe,
It doesn’t protect me from my conscience, when you leave.
So go home please!

Lone Apple Tree

Let me be as the lone apple tree
Among the trees of the forest
That you found and sat down under.
With great delight,
You sat in its shadow;
For a taste of comfort,
You ate its sweet fruit
Until you were strengthened
Because you were faint with desire,
But I am faint with love for you.
So, take me now to your lone apple tree,
Peculiar among all other trees,
And with great joy under its shadow,
Let us sit and recline
And there awaken love,
As you raise me up;
Refresh yourself
For when I am roused, 
You will be stayed, strengthened 
With words fitly spoken;
Keep me as the apple of your eye.

Diamond in the Rough

Dear heart the love of my life and more,
I adore your eyes that shine when you smile.
After I look deep within I know the score.
My arms long to hold you in loving style.
Our past lives, guided, always intertwined.
Now we have rekindled our affections true.
Diamond in the rough, I could always find.

I pledge my life, light, laughter and love to you 
Now and forever, I request to taste your lips of wine.

Tell the spirit of love, what we plan to do.
Hearing every note of our song-playing fine,
Each day of our life together, just us two,

Reveal of our passion, never needed for anyone.
Our adoration flies from our faces upon this earth.
Universes watch in awe, our devotion won.
Graciously we have bonded in a lifetime of worth.
Having our souls blessed by treasures by the ton.

Lack Of Sight

Lack of sight,
You should be her knight,
Out peddling wood,
Oh, if I could,
Take your place,

How anyone in this land
Could be so blind,
Takes the stupid kind,

I guess a chance for me,
To atone you see,
For I was once as dumb,
As you seem to have become.

Forever-Part 4

We get off the plane, back in LA. We drop our stuff off at home and go out for the day.

 

You wait outside the bathroom door. "Baby," I say. You stop breathing. "What is it?" I slowly open the door. "Yes." I say and smile. "Yes!" you scream and pick me up. You spin me around and kiss me.

9 months later I step out of the car. 3 of us this time. Isavella. Our first daughter. "She looks just likeher mom," you say and smile. "With her daddy's eyes," I say and look at you. "I love you," you say. "I love you too," I say and gently kiss me.

 

We're older now we've made it a long way. We sit on the deck and watch the sun set. "All or nothing," I say and hold your hand. "All or nothing," you say and lead me down to the sand. "30 years is a long time," you say to me and pull me close. " So is forever," I say. You hit play and Amazed comes on. "We'll make it that far, I swer," you say as we start to dance. We look at Isabella playing in the sand. "I know baby," I say and smile.
 

We'll last forever. Nothing will break us. We'll always be together.



Together forever.

My Statue

A constant presence
Watching over me
Always by my side
Ready to pick me up
Everytime I fall
No facades around you
I can be myself
I don't have to masquerade
As someone else so you
Will remain true to me

Through the many storms
That have come our way
You have remained
Knowing all my secrets
Knowing all my sins
Nothing I could do would
Ever cause your statue
For me to crumble

Despite so many years
Of unrequited love
You waited a lifetime
Just for the chance 
To show me your love 
No matter what I looked like
No matter what I had done
To break your heart
You always referred to me
As your ideal woman
"Perfect" in your eyes
Your love for me is true
Like a statue always standing
As a tribute of your devotion

Sociopath Part 1

You don't see me
As a woman
You only see me
As your prey
Your next meal
Seeking to devour me
With your razor sharp fangs
Superficially charming
But, I see through your facade
Your smoke and mirrors
Aren't fooling me
Salivating at the
Thought of making
Me your next victim
You feel Carnal desires
Burning inside you
Swelling up like 
A tidal wave
Trying to make this
Surfer catch a ride
On your cryptic sailboat
In your sea of 
Sacrificial lambs

Cruel deception
Pretty lies
Cool as an 
Autumn breeze
With every single
Act of prevarication
That you commit
Shakespearean performances
In your presence
Acting out so many 
Histrionic displays 
Of drama to seduce
The gullible souls
Who want to understand you
So that you can exsert
Your dyspotic control
Over their lives
Enslaving them
Your narcissism
Prevents you from
Understanding the
Tears they cry
Because of your wrath

Monotone voice
No accentuation
No emphasis can
Be heard because
You don't mean
The words that
Leave your lips 
A poker face
Lacking grace
Devoid of sincerity
Communication only
A tool to manipulate

The Wonder of Your Love

Take my emotions from me and I shall forever be lifeless.
Hearing your heartbeat fills my loneliness, stays my fright.
Emotional venues are in my spirit, a true wonder of my life.

We have shared friendship, tenderness, passion, and heartache.
Only time will develop the envelope, of our intimacy combined.
Never take for granted our love and indifferences in our lives.
Death may take our mortal fervor our bond will remain evermore.
Excitements we share are beyond the sensual feelings we adore.
Relishing each second, and minutes of the years, months, days,

Only my heart can show the true devotion that you give so free.
From my touch, kisses, words I write you each year, you will know.

Yearning to hold and caress every part of your fundamental nature.
Our mature embodiment will guide us through true devotion.
Unanswered emotions will drive us to compete for satisfaction.
Reveling outwardly, securing the wonder of your love for me.

Let your soul know that I shall completely design my life for you.
Our love shall not be overthrown by any jury or court in this land.
Victory is yours, for the attorney of conviction, is unobjectionable.
Each year of my confinement to your love will be truly a wonder.

"Still Running From You"

i am barely dressed
in my dreams of you  
simple raw to the sexiest man 
i have ever known   

do i  want 
to get undress for you 
under darkness 
were love seem so real
here your voice 
cry out to me 
feel your body,
move so violently  
have you
infused inside of  me~    
your hands all over me

i must run
keeping my clothes on   
i want you
i  need you
things I want to say
under no light
but i don't 
i fear you~ 

i beg the most of me 
to hide from you

because if you knew 
how much i want 
to make love to you 

what would you do?? 

look at me in that way you do
with that deep long 
unblinking sire  
that says, if i kiss you............. 
   
kiss me, i beg it of you  
till i am necked under you 

i have to run , run from you 
you are alpha male  
raw deep lust 

because it is love for me? 
and it is lust for you? 

this is to confusing 
i must pray
run, as fast as my soul 
can carry me  

save myself 
because i am now condemn 
because if you knew 
all you have to do is 
kiss me~   

and I'd be necked under you~

Forsaken Eurydice

[Satyr]
A quick game is all it will be
I can tell you can hear my shouts and screams from forest 
Your home it beckons thee
Why won't you come and play with me?
 
Why cant you cure her?
The venom isn't too deep
If you could awaken her once
Cant you do it again
 Did sorrow blind you?

Eurydice Eurydice how mortal death has forsaken thee
Why I not could listen to the dread king
All the life to you I could bring
I had to look back with eyes of dismay

Music no more will there be 
For I have forsaken my Eurydice

He will never listen 
No is all you will hear
Death is always the killer of love
Death will always win

Go back to your kingdom
My words have been proclaimed
Your music will not be able to charm

Why don't you please
Give him his love
He went this far in vainI
f he cannot see her blank face
Wont why you please

 For I have forsaken my Eurydice

If it will please
You can see her
Only without your eyes
Throughout the dark realm
Looking back will forsaken your Eurydice

All the life to you I could bring

Who loves ya baby, you know it’s me.
Who loves ya baby, all the Angels see.
Who loves ya baby, as deep as can be.
Who loves ya baby, an ultimate degree.
Who loves ya baby, beyond infinity.
Who loves ya baby, I need no fee.

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

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.

Love Defined

You cannot see love
Like seeing sky above,
You cannot hear love
Like hearing bells ring,
You cannot smell love.
Like the scent of a rose.
You cannot touch love.
Like you handle a glove,
However, you can feel love.
In a warm glowing heart,
You can see it so deeply.
From a glance of ones eyes,
You can perceive true love.
From the sound of the words,
Loves fragrance may grow.
From a trail that you know,
Love is complete and scentless.
But never partial or senseless,
Love may be hidden by one.
It can be subjective or won.

Last night

i'm your hug 
the one 
that you let have you 
in the middle of the night 
that introduces you 
to the sleepy eye 
wondrous delight 
of being delicately awoken 
in the embrace of passion 
long enough to 
carry you 
to the next moment 
your eyes 
decide 
to close again 


but until then 
i am awake with your breath 
i am the shadow of the light 
that seeps in from the night 
through the courtesy of curtains 
hung by lovers 
who could never say "no" to each other 

i am the lick of the wind 
that tastes 
your skin 
long enough to 
carry you 
to the next moment 
your eyes 
decide 
to close again 


and eventually awaken 
with that "stupid grin" 
that spends 
the rest of the day 
on your beautiful face

Musings Of You

The moon appeared whole that night,
at rest, deep within your eyes,
unsure am I of the heavens now,

‘though musings of you stay.


Our lips became acquainted once,
fervour was in abundance,   
the season’s phase unrecalled,

‘though musings of you stay.


Honeybee tended to timid rose,
I, in your snug embrace,
winter winds almost forgotten, 

‘though musings of you stay.


Joyous faces on a frozen lake,
turn sour with pencilled lines,
nor are you, my love, faultless,

‘though musings of you stay.

Games With the Crone

Strategizing your next move
In our little game of chess
That we have been playing
Against each other for so long
Precious one, don't you
Realize that I already
Know your next move
My teacher was Bobby Fischer 
He taught me how to defeat
Players just like yourself
He made me a pro at this 
Game of cat and mouse

My eyes see the truth
My ears hear what you
Are really saying and 
Not what you utter to me
I know what you're thinking
I know how you will answer 
Me before you even open 
Up your lying mouth
No naive school girl here
I have been playing this
Game longer than you
And believe me, baby
I know how to win
I will take your King
Before you even get a
Chance to move your pawn

You cannot defeat the 
Mistress of love games
I have have been played 
With too many times
To miss when I have
Met up with another player
Trying to outwit the dominatrix
Are you going to quit or
Am I going to have 
To get the whip out?
Save your masquerading
For someone who will
Fall for your bag of tricks
This old crone has been around
Way too long to be fooled
By a mere amateur like you

Guarding Dreams Deep … Watching You Sleep

Silent touch awakens the spirit

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

You are My Everything

The Sun and all its beauty
is just a distant star,
next to you.

The world and all its lands
is just dry dirt
next to you.

The setting sun over the sea
Wanes painfully
In your presence.

The spoken words of love
Fall on deaf ears
If not your voice.

I say, my love,
you are the beacon that guides me.
You are a Louvre exhibit in flesh.
You are an angel as well.
You are my everything.

Unspoken

Unspoken words show from things I do.
Unspoken words not needed from me to you.

Friendship was the first I gave so dear.
Then kisses upon the neck so sincere,

Lips of ours that touched with tenderness,
A touch between us gave such openness.

Each day at first when we were apart,
Our love grew deeper within our heart.

Love is not given, earned from the start.
Enriched and appreciated as in art.

Together now we still spark a flame.
Our bond that we share has no shame.

Each night when our bodies lie still,
Our spirits rise with so much to fulfill.

Sometimes when we chat so serene,
Our souls combine, our minds convene.

Holding each other for hours in delight,
We are bound until first break of light.

Each new day more love and no fears.
I pray our love shall be stronger for years.

' Masculine Majesty ... ' Medieval # 2

           ‘ Masculine  Majesty … ’ 
             Medieval Lines # 2


Lo’ and Behold … Thy Masculine Majesty
Thy Manliness, Suits Thee, Most Perfectly
As Knightly Swain, doth’ this Maid Elate
Wherefore Thy Warrior Hands, Commence Passionate

Thy Kingly Eyes, Glisten-Graciously, Wise
And Smolder My Sight, as Sun doth’ Skies
Thy Princely Lips, Whence Wine doth’ Drip
Dare I Partake One Sip, ere’ Swoon and Skip?

Thy Presence and Essence, art’ Aphrodisiac to My Soul
I Beseech Thee, Sup from Mine Alchemy-Bowl
Forsooth, by Thine Bow and Arrow 
and Mine Own, Blood, Bone Marrow …

… I Must Have Thee, lest’ I Wail in Sorrow
I Forswear The Handsomeness of Any Other Fellow
The Look of Thee, Melts Me … Like Candle Tallow
Thence … I Shall Seek Thy Love … on The Morrow

Lo’ and Behold … Thy Masculine Majesty …

Silhouettes Captured

Animated in the night we fall prey to our love so sweet.
The ambiance is familiar for us both to be complete.
Flirty and sweet our love continues to grow more.
Guarded we share so many words that we adore.


Lightly we continue our lives in total faith and bliss.
Jealousy haunts us not we will listen not of this.
Magnetic love that attracts each other each day,
Memories of our past surround us in every way.


Privately we bond our love in style and gentle grace.
Openly we generate and show the faith we face.
Romantic things we do for each other through years.
Shadow our life and shows in each other’s eyes in tears.


Not of sadness, but joy and sharing of our love so strong,
Our silhouettes captured spiritually, without any wrong

Sun-Sweet

Sun-sweet
Sun-sweet,

I plucked your stem not for your taste,
but for the way you looked at me
when I strolled by on harvest day,
as you hung from flourished citric tree.

Sun-sweet
Sun-sweet,

I wouldn't dream of hurting you.
Why must one peel such wholesome love
to know if what they've picked taste true?

Sun-sweet
Sun-sweet,

The dawn approaches on swift wings
with morning's lively kiss in tow.
Such warmth is worthy of our praise.
Will you come with me to grace its glow?

Sun-sweet
Sun-sweet,

I'll lift you up towards open sky.
Please promise me that you will keep
the fragrance that you hold alive.

Let's bask in caramel rays of heat,
forevermore

Sun-sweet
Sun-sweet!

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.

Happy Birthday My Love

Wishing on your birthday I could hand you the moon,
And be able to promise you that everything will be perfect real soon!
Wishing I could give you a handful of stars from up above,
And that I could give you everything you've ever dreamed of!
Wishing I could give you a world full of love & peace,
And that I could promise you no more worries & forever set your mind at ease!
Wishing I could give you everything you've ever dreamed of or could ever desire,
But I'm afraid all I have to give is my heart & soul with the promise it'll never-
-expire!-

Here With You

The soft, subtle whisper of the beating of your heart,
The lazy circles your thumb traces on the back of my hand,
The gentle rise and fall of your chest as you breathe,
The way I fit so perfectly wrapped up in your arms,
The warmth of your breath on my forehead,
The way your breathing blows through the hair on top of my head,
The comfort that I feel as I lay my head on your chest,
The safety that I feel here wrapped up in your arms,
The way the sunlight dances across the room from between the shades,
The noise outside the window ushering in a new day,
The peace I feel at this very moment, 
Separate from the world around us,
That's all I need to convince me to stay here with you.

Many Strong Have Fallen

Delilah's pleasures
Her head lain in Samson's lap
Blind, he grinds around

Concubines' treasures
Solomon's Playboy Mansion
Kingdom of idols

Bathsheba's gestures
Rivers and blood David stole
Hid to no prophet

Stronger have fallen
Your resistance is futile
If you compromise

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.

Asleep

Asleep as  his eyes closed in to a dream

Missing am i in his moments going by

Asleep as he lays not one sound as i sit at his side

Staring at his face of peaceful beauty

Does he know that i sit beside him as he lies asleep

Asleep as his hand near mine holds only still 

Should i move closer so he might fill 

Me

Asleep as he dreams of thee unknown quietly

Missing am i in his hours going by

Asleep as he lays not one movement as i memorize his eyes

Him

Asleep as i cant stand to sit so near to him

Asleep i want to be don't he see

That Asleep in his arms is were i dream awake to be

Him me

Asleep i just sit at his side to see him and wonder what he dreams

And wishing i keep to lay by his side and fall the same

The Keeper

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

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

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

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

Your Gift

Broken, beaten confused, and confined
This emotional hell was your gift, all mine
I gave you everything I possible could give
When I had no more, it was me you could not live with
Picking up the pieces and no where to go
Hatred, cruelty, and uncaring is all you showed
Not your concern, just get out, do not stay
Your not the same, you were never that way
3 weeks and you have not heard from me
Am I getting over you? So you call and see
For a minute, my old David shined through
You saw my love was still there and true
More fun for you, playing a sadistic game 
Again, broken-hearted and left only with shame
Death is what I long for now these days
Wishing this was just a dream, nothing but a haze
Why did you do this, was this your plan?
Will this be the end and you clap your hands?
Life was fun and I embraced the future
Now it is nothing but everyday torture.
I opened up all of myself for you to take
What did you do? Used it and waited for it to break
I have to keep going till God tell me it is time
Until then, I am trapped in your hell, all mine

The Perfect Man

You are my angel that fell from the sky.
You are so perfect, you have all that apply
As I lay here listening to your drumming heart
I feel like there’s no chance that we could ever part.
When you look at me with those golden eyes
I realize that you are my life long prize
Listening to you whisper your passion in my ear
how could I ever deny that your soul is sincere
You look deep into my heart and get down on one knee
You reach for my hand and ask will you marry me.
All I can do is cry out my joy and scream yes, yes, yes!
I then say to myself that I have truly been blessed.
Thank you god, for this perfect man that just walked through my door
if he only knew, that he is my first real love.....I have never been loved before

Thee One Forever

Thee Embracement I feel with each touch
Incredible feelings I have wanted so Much
Wonderful feelings between You and I
A wonderful but wonder, could it be a lie
So I lay down my guard and open my Heart
And pray to Thee Lord that only Love will start.
Wishing two bodies could become One
With a tear that falls each after their done
Letting go to hurt from the past
And say a prayer to the future that it will last
Each hug you offer warmth to my Soul
A Love, One Love that the good book told
In cowmen yes we have with one another
In cowmen we have will you forever be my Lover
Forever and always may The Lord Bless You
In understanding that I’m fallen for you
A worm Heart is all I see so far It’s your Heart
That I will Forever need  
My Love my Sweet Love
I wish you could feel my mind
With the words its ok and you will forever be kind
My age you say it may concern
But with the right teacher I could learn
Patients I need and Wisdom I seek
I find in you the One to teach
 And all I say is in good faith and prayer
Because another Heartache I could not bear
So I leave on your mind this One thing 
This feeling now makes my Soul wants to sing
Just no that I could be The One, 
Forever One to Love You Completely

It Rains No More

Yes, it was raining, cold and misty, and then it stopped abrupt.
Angels weep, glazing the panes, as I look out and wonder.
My breath displaces the view, as I ponder your thoughts.
Flashes of light, remind me of the beauty of your eyes.
Silencing thunder, allows my heart to hear your voice.
I place my hand, toward the glass, to touch your face.
Temperate hands, that desire to hold your hand, so soft.
Recalling my view and over again, I feel our passion.
Reflections of our outlines, shadowed by the subtle light,
Revisited repeatedly, it rains no more for me.
Though I now, no longer have a physical form, to see.
My presence is and will always be, linked to your soul.
We will always serve these memories above.
Until the time we will forever be bonded as Angels.
Memories you will create and believe, guide your spirit.
I’ll emulate, as I watch from the glory, I will be yours.

Wounds of Love

Love, a bittersweet blessing
Sometimes it fills us with joy
Sometime it drives us to madness
We feel it's power either way
We cannot escape it's grip on us

Without warning it enters our heart
Suddenly our lover becomes the entire
Focus of our lives without us even realizing it
This is when the dark side of love reveals itself

We hang on every word they utter in our presence
Waiting for the poetic words that make us feel adored
When acidic words are screamed instead 
Our emotions intensify and explode

We transform into another being
One that knows not rational thought
But, whose emotions dominate their lives
A wounded heart commits acts that defy logic
Like a mighty twister spiraling out of control
There is no taming the ferocious beast 
That is starved for affection by their lover

When our lovers cherishes us 
And fills that emptiness inside us
We feel loves enticing magic
But, when we are neglected
And battered our sweet demeanor
Vanishes and is replaced with wrath

When you starve your lover
They become vicious
Remembering the bitter
Sting of your rejection
They cannot handle
The emptiness they 
Are being engulfed with
They drown in despair
Falling victim to the
Wounds of love

Our Future is Now (marvellete)

So what say ye about this night 
     As you stand there in candlelight?
In darkest shadows does love hide?
     Or does it glow so burning bright?

As tempest heart resounds and beats
     Do you wander on or find retreat?
For I am here, oh blushing bride,
     As now your shyness finds defeat.

Oh come, my love, be not so coy
     You may just find that you’ll enjoy
Do take my hand, it’s worth a try
     We have our passion to employ

Lest not forget the reason here
     My love, t’is you, I hold so dear
I see our future within your eyes
     For our love will last year after year

What is love

Do you know what love means to you?  Can you put it in your pocket or store it 
away for another day. Is it the special moment in time? Does it last forever or 
does it go away. Our loved one is hear only for awhile Do you give of your time a 
little or do you give more.  Do you take the time to love them and hold them dear. 
Do you lend that helping hand do you walk that mile. Is your loved one dear to 
your heart. Do you take the time to listen and let them know you care. When they 
are feeling down and need a listening ear. Do you take the time to be there or do 
you not really care. What about the old when there life on earth will be ending 
soon. Do you tell them that they are very important to you and if they need you will 
be there. What about the children that mean so dear. Do you spend the time to 
hear their dreams and fears They are only little for only a short while and grow up 
and leave the nest. Their world is important to them so hold them dear to you. 
And walk that extra mile. There are many forms and meanings of what you feel is 
love. loving ,sharing ,caring Now I ask you this one more time the question is 
this. What is love

Two Together but One Always

When I awake, you are on my mind.
As I live, you are in my heart.
You are the inspiration who gave me hope to begin again; to start afresh, anew-
knowing I can depend on you and your love.

Before I sleep, you engulf my mind, my thoughts, so I say I love you, good night 
and I'm glad you are near me, by my side to hug you; to hold you; to shower you 
with love.

You are a blessing; a gift; a source of joy;  you inspire me.
You have captured my hear; lifted my soul; and made me truly happy.
You are the missing part of my perfect whole, complimenting me in a most 
special and dynamic way.

Our relationship is the best component of my life; one that I hope and pray will 
last forever, bringing everlasting joy and peace and love to both of us.

My love for you, for us is as deep as deep can be; as strong as strong can be; 
and as lasting as eternity.

I hope I will be your last love, your first love, your all from now until then and 
forever.

I am yours as you desire now and forever and you are mine.
I will love you as you desire and as you love me-

And we will be US but yet ONE always!

Box Without a Key

Box Without a Key


You scuttle in darkness, avoiding
the light of everyday living.
Fed by your mistress, the needle,
and I am unforgiving.

Could not battle her 
siren call, could not send her away.
Only times you were happy
was when she came out to play.

Worked with you, 
helped you find light,
but you preferred the
hidden darkness of night.

When the last bone was broken,
the last word said,
I rode the freedom bus
and pretended you are dead.

Hope is a cancer
eating me from inside out,
filling my mind with ideas,
trying to erase my doubt.

For now I keep you locked away
in a box with no key,
praying in the darkness
that one day I may set you free.

The Picnic

Loving couple hot summer's day
Head back home one Saturday
 
He pours cool drinks
She showers warm
They both head
To their loving dorm
 
They sip their drinks
Sitting on their bed
He slides her robe
As he kisses her head
 
Over her shoulder
Warm flesh revealed
This couples love
Will soon be sealed
 
They slide of the bed
Lays her on the floor
On her front
My love i adore
 
Her back massaged
Her cheeks kissed
Not one area
Has been missed
 
Arched and ready
He moves real close
His Mr of Men
His loving post
 
Picnic box, opens lid
Vanilla ice cream
On her back its slid
She arches up 
As it slides down her spine
To the curve in her cheeks
To her end sublime
 
Her groans and cries
As he absorbs the cream
Her heaven moist
Eyes closed she dreams
 
Her body flavoured
For the Mr of Men
He takes his woman
In their lovers den
 
Penetration deep
Her body sighs
Sexual eruption
Loving cries
Her walls adorned
With loving spores
This loving couple
On their den floor
 
Juices flowing
Their recipe
The start of life
Salinity
 
On her back
Her legs a Vee
He ventures down
Bows on his knees
 
A pool of life
From sexual pleasure
He scoops to share
With his loving treasure
 
He slowly makes his way to her
Past her scented heaven fur
Torso reached
Breasts passed
He's finally reached his lass
 
With love filled eyes
Their lips meet
They share their prize
From their loving feat

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.....

I Care

If I stopped hurting you, would you stop hurting me?
Let’s work this problem out there’s so much at stake you see!

We’re both so much a like, yet we walk our different ways,
Finding each others faults seems to be the norm these last few days.

Everything I say to you seems to be taken wrong or so it seems, 
What’s happened to our life’s, our hopes, our prayers, our dreams.

Let’s stop the things we’re doing and do what every it takes,
We’ve got too much to lose and I love you for heavens sake.

Let us bury our foolish pride, just lay it all aside,
I’m sorry for what I said it hurt me when you cried.

It doesn’t matter who started what, as long as we know what we did was wrong,
I just want to hold you close to me, and know our love is safe and strong.

You are the one I value most, the one I trusted with my heart,
Without you in my life, I wouldn’t know where to start.

When I first met you, somehow I knew you were the one,
And there are too many good years we’ve shared to let it come undone

So put back on your happy face, and let’s enjoy the life we share,
Let the tears drown out the anger, and push aside the pain and let me prove I love you and
that I really care.

About the recent past
Memories of your
Cruel demeanor

Bottling up my sorrow

You've Got

You've got the kind of kisses that give me chills and makes me hot at the same 
time.
The kind that give the butterflies in my tummy butterflies.
You've got the kind of love that makes fairy tales look like Hell.
The kind of love that makes me question how it was I for whom you fell.
You've got the kind of smile that could make Shakespeare speechless.
The kind that makes Cinderella wish she had this.
You've got the kind of love that words and music can't be put to.
The kind that makes me wonder how it is I ever got you.
You've got the kind of eyes that I get lost in and no map can save me.
The kind that make me wish forever was more than just a fantasy.
You've got the kind of kisses that leave me light headed and take my breath away.
The kind that make my heart beat at a new rate.
You've got the kind of love that leaves me begging time to freeze.
The kind that let's me know that without you, there is no me.
You've got the kind of love that leaves everyone jealous.
The kind that makes me smile, knowing I deserve less,
But you're the love that God gave to me.
You're the only love that can make me happy.

Many Lights

There are many kinds of light in the world,
But my light outshines every one.
Even the full moon among the stars
Can only reflect me; I am the sun.

Hypnotic

Like murmuring winds of a raging sea
A passion rises, quietly breathing life into my lungs
In the stillness of such a peaceful moment
I can feel the embrace of your compassionate heart and eternal love
When a single ray of light fades away to darkness
And the bounds of the sea crash onto the sheltering rocks
There you continue to stand in the depth of the sea
Restoring my fainting strength with your understanding heart
And I'm filled with an unexplainable passionate love
That leaves me speechless to collapse in your arms forever

Your Tu' Lips

You… can send me Roses
And cards with Sonnet-Stories
You… buy me Bouquets’
But there’s one Plant, I need Each Day…

It’s something… You, Yourself have to Bring
And must never stop it Blooming
It’s something You just can’t Ship…
… It’s Your Tu’ Lips

I like Orchid-Arrangements
And every Posy, You ever Sent
Get Bluebonnets… when You’re Out of Sight
But, only One Pick is my Favorite

The Scent of a Sweet, Warm Breath
Petal-Soft, and Passionate
I just want to Sip
The Nectar of Your Tu’ Lips

No Wildflower, got the Power
To Out-Whip… Your Tu’ Lips
Your Love Feeds… My Taste-Bud Needs
and the Dew, that Drips… from Your Tu’ Lips…

Honeysuckle, is Fine
Give Me Violets and Petunias, Sometimes
Sunflowers… May Follow You Darlin’
… but, You’re the Bulb, in my Prize Garden

That Grows in Sunshine or Shade
The Kind, The Good Lord Made
And I’ll Never Walk by nor Skip
… a Kiss, from Your Tu’ Lips…

Endlessly

Endlessly
   by Amy Swanson 


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

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

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

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

Warm my soul so tenderly
when bitter cold winds blow;

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

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

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

You're The Best Husband

Today I died inside.
I saw you kiss her.
Don't try to deny.
You kissed her on the lips.
I saw a bit of fire in her eyes.
You love her?
When you look at her your eyes light up.
As if she has put stars in your eyes.
The stars that I once gave you.
The ones you lost so long ago.
I want her to leave you alone.
But I see this cannot happen.
She loves you.
As much or more then me.
You love her, I see it in your eyes.

As I laid awake last night,
I heard you say her name.
Crying it in your sleep.
I'm guessing she doesnt know about me.
What happens when she knows?
Will she leave you with a broken heart?
I dont mean to impose.
I wish I could speak to you. 
I wish I could tell you to go.
Why was I hurt?
Why I am this way?
I can think but do no such thing as move.

Go! I want to scream.
You love her!
Dont waste anymore of your life on me!
She thinks I am your sister.
That you're just taking care of me.
You're such a nice brother, she thinks.
But little does she know.
You're the best husband.

Supreme Love

Everything is your kiss so divine and sweet
A touch of your hand is my only desire.
Our bodies embrace and the Angels sing.
My love is strong and till end of time.
Your face envelops my eyes of a dream.
A dream that is for real and forever kept.
Deep in my heart and soul, cherished so.
Every day our love is here and now.
Every year it grows beyond any limit.
My spirit commands that I love you dear.
My arms await the next embrace we share.
One sweet kiss from you is my eternity.
I pledge to fulfill our loves hold and more.
For you entered ecstasy into my design.
For you my dear are my love supreme.

Don't lose our love

Father please stop yelling,
your voice booms all around.
We got so used to hearing it – 
we switch off to the sound.

Oh yes it’s true we hear you
but your voice is now a noise;
it’s not what you say – that we can hear,
just abusive, boystrous tones.

If you stop a while, take time to think -
And plan what you might say?
Maybe you’d talk instead of shout,
and then we’d respond and work things out.

But while your respond in dulcid tones,
whilst all we hear is put downs, moans.
While all you do is scream and yell,
you’ll push us away – so far until…

You’ll lose our love, and all respect,
we’ll grow up not knowing loving yet;
run to the first who shows interest,
repeat history, life of whole regret…

You’ll lose our love, so stop this now,
teach us to love , to talk things through.
We’re not so bad, you’ll see us now,
And as a unit we’ll learn to grow…and flourish…

Make you proud, you’ll see.
Make you understand your love of me,
Be still, be heard – in quiet reserve,
with dignity, respect, and glee…

be proud.

The love you give is one of a Kind
And with this ring I will bind
A love that is true
For a life time.

The one who makes you feel very special
The one who's not about lies,drama or playing games
AND THE ONE WHO YOU WILL VERY PROUDLY SAY YES THAT'S MY MAN

Soon Comes Sundown

though we've gotten used to moving on and away
just before the dawn ushers in
another new day

          still it deeply pains me to see you see me
          feigning  strength in letting you go,
          letting you be

                    but let's take heart, this sunup will soon be sundown
                    and we shall once again be alone,
                    on our own

                              so for now, let your slumber drift away, satin hair,
                              let it vanish like a wisp of mist
                              in the air.

You were the apple of my eye

You were as  sweet as my cherry
Lollipop

You smelled of red roses and cherry
Wine

You could not be denied

You were the apple of my apple
Eye

You written our heart’s on a tree

In fact the tree was a magnolia
Planted in my front yard

With blooms in full blossoms

With the sweetest scent you

Could ever find

Our love was tattoo within this
Heart

Burnt upon this magnolia tree

That stand so strong

And holds our love for now and
For evermore

Our love, our hearts, our soul, our
Spirit is here to stay as one..

You were the apple of my eye

Was than

And still is...

Love bites

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

Appetites Weakness

Sharpened fear settles upon me
in pools of dripping pleasure.
I toy with affections haunting,
inner flavors of temptation.

Solitude confinement concurs
my inability to resist it’s taunting.
As my thirst gathers tortured time,
restless winds glaze my atmosphere.

Whistling sensations chill tingles
within my bloody souls chambers.
Calling out passions screams of honor,
groping every blade of bitterness.

With a sweet savory desire
of appetites weakness,
I can stomach of your love.

Origin of the Kiss

Weaned from milk of mother's breast
The natural instinct follows through
To take hold and touch
To caress and suck
The lips and tongue, two mouths
Exchanging and conferring breath
Which holds the soul and self-will
Uniting the bride and groom
Married and now in the room
Addicted to each other's sebum
Rubbing noses like Eskimos
Inhaling each other's fragrance
Tactile foreplay invites
Licks and lovebites
To copulation, consummation
Yearning for the other's sustenance
The natural instinct follows through
To take hold and touch
To caress and suck
Breath of life for breath of life

For My Valentine

You are not only the sun that
lights my way and warms my skin,
you are the very sky and
the heaven it lies within.

You are not only my rock,
my strength, my health,
you are my foundation,
the Earth itself.

You are not only the air I breathe,
scented summer honeysuckle sweet,
you are the very atmosphere
sustaining, containing my love's heartbeat.

You are not only each 
synapse of my brain,
you are the life-blood
coursing through my veins.

You are not only my sole
purpose for living,
you are life itself,
my end and my beginning.

You are not only the wind
beneath my wings, my blue sky,
you are the promise that
lets my soul fly.

I Drink to You

                        I can tell you how much I feel about you,
                        how the sun and moon are just objects
                          compared to you, how the bluest sky

Lost in Love

Embracing you, now, at this very moment,
I can think of no other place I would rather be.
The world outside can wait and get along without me,
I’m lost in your love, my ever tranquility.

The scent of your being always gives me smile
The softness of your curves, well they give a rush.
My sweetness, this is all this man needs and wants.
I’m lost in your love; I need you ever so much.

Into your eyes I see now and tomorrow
I welcome the presence of each brand new day
In this lover’s embrace we’ll conquer each moment.
I’m lost in your love, with tears, I now say.

At Times

At Times, 

My eyes will set me to see this tremendous world that tumbles over me.
Closing my eyes to the existence at hand my mind rolls with clouds from a higher land.
I was here I was there, now I find that I am everywhere surrounded by a mistake at hand.
I saw this and I saw that and my eyeballs they just roll and roll with the tides of the Sea.
He loved me and I loved Him until time told this and then time told that, 
Then there was absolutely no one to believe.
At times, 
I am neither here nor am I there until I have compared, for I am my highest in stand!

At Times, 

My tongue will loosen the bonds that bind abundantly arousing my taste I now crave.
Closing my eyes to the intolerance on hand my thoughts travel like magnets pulling steel.
I went now I went then, and here I find that I am found where I was surely going to kill.
I saw that and I saw this and my tongue it just slipped and slipped until I found the seals.
I loved Him and He loved me until this became that and that became this, 
Then I felt just like His slave.
At times, 
I am neither there nor am I here until I will swear, for I am my highest in brave.

At Times, 

My mind will set me to this grand and glorious world that crumples around me.
Closing my eyes to the persistence at hand my life starts to question this Earthly sand.
I was here I was there, now I find that I am nowhere surrounded by this great big plan.
I saw this and I saw that and my brain cells they just fled and left with the tides of the
Sea.
He loved me and I loved Him until we both threw down our fight, 
Then there was absolutely no one to see.
At times, 
I am neither here nor am I there until I have cheered, for I am the highest in “Grand”!

In You and With You

In you and with you
I have my very being
Because you took my breath away
An stole my heart;
You are vital to me.

In you and with you
I am found
Because you possess my soul
And have my thoughts;
You are necessary for me.

In you and with you
I live my life;
Because you hold every part of me
And have my body;
You complete me.

I need you and I want you.
I love you,
And I love being in you and with you.

Unhealthy Fantasies

He will not love
He will not honor her
He will not yield to her needs
He will not give her what she wants
So she thinks of someone who can

She will not submit
She will not bow to him
She will not yield to his needs
She will not give him what he wants
So he thinks of someone who can

Further and further they drift apart
With craving souls and burning lusts
Temptations mounting everywhere
And they succumb to the ones in mind

In darkened rooms raging passions
Take hold of their private places
Til ideal faces and ideal bodies
Release the tension temporarily

She's taken to worlds
She flies in the heavens
She's the moon that bursts into stars
She comes down but sees her winding sheets
And that she has crashed there all alone

He's riding the waves
He's walking on the waters
He's Poseidon on seas with mermaids
Then letting go, falling back to depths below
He still burns alone for satisfaction

Because though they can think of someone who can
They can't... fulfill needs and desires with just sex 

They need and want each other's appeal
They need to love and submit 
They need to honor and bow 
They need to yield...
Til their wishes become reality

When You Love Somebody

When you love somebody,
You will love in truth and in deed the way you desire
	to be loved by the other,
And you will suffer long and be kind
Until you find that all that that person has and is 
	is being given to you;

You will not be envious
When you love somebody.
You will both say good words and perform great and small
	selfless acts of love,
But you won't push yourself forward to boast of them
Even if most of them seem to go unnoticed or unappreciated
	by your significant other;

You won't be conceited or arrogant
When you love somebody.
You will honor and respect and prefer the other
	and his or her interests before your own.
So you will not be rude
Even if you're used or neglected by your one and only
	for his or her own pleasure and ease;

You will not be self-seeking
When you love somebody.
You may be offended or sinned against with words
	or by actions seventy times seven,
But you will not be easily angered
Avoiding the danger and the appearance of dissimulated love,
	you forgive as if there's nothing to forgive;

You will keep no record of wrongs
When you love somebody.
You communicate and disclose yourself and your feelings
	without fear or disputing,
So you will have no pleasure in evil
Around other people or when you're alone together,
	so peace is kept with understanding;

You will rejoice with the truth
When you love somebody.
You will sacrifice as if every sacrifice is but a reasonable gift,
	even laying down your own life;
You will always protect the person
And never reject the person, neither regret nor forget the vows
	you've promised in truth and honesty;

You will always believe in the person
When you love somebody.
You will walk by faith and not by sight until you're like-minded
	and have the same love for one another,
So you will always hope
And learn to cope and bear the infirmities of the weaker one
	until there comes a change;

You will always persevere
When you love somebody.
You will be strong, showing the way love ought to be;
	knowing you're not perfect, but striving
You will conquer and overcome evil by doing good
And love the way love would, knowing full well that 
	without the power of love you cannot love;

You will always endure for the future set before you
When you love somebody.
You will have faith, hope and never be put to shame
	because love will never fail.

Darkened by the chasing light

To shun the near unveiling
Of her beauty I would adore
Pivoting on these thoughts

Love Me for Me

{the woman}
If my charm proves deceitful,
If beauty will flee-
Will you still love me for me?
If my health becomes sickness,
If worse things you'd see-
Would you still love me for me?

(Bridge)
And I am convinced, though the future presents
Any creature that ever will be
In the heights or the depths, none can separate us~
If you will still love me for me.


Set me as a seal upon your heart
Lover of my soul, my deepest part, 
Just the way I am without one plea
I love you for you; love me for me

With the most vehement flames of fire
Waters cannot quench true love's desire
Or wash it far away into the sea
I love you for you; love me for me  (Chorus)


{the man}
If my glory of strength fades,
If fame will decrease-
Will you still love me for me?
If my talents should be lost,
If all gifts should cease-
Would you still love me for me?

(BridgeII)
But I am persuaded through all tribulations,
Though famine and peril may be,
That no hardship or nakedness shall separate us
If you will still love me for me.

(Chorus)

What we need to do

We have to do
To say, to give
Far above our own hearts
Willingly

Edification and good pleasure

To say, to give
From our own hearts
Good pleasure and edification

You are to Me

You are able to reach into my heart
Grip it, yet love it gently and sweet.
You are able to penetrate my thoughts
Resulting, my dear, in a night full of heat.
You have a way of knowing what to expect,
Always anticipating my every move.
You seem to control my often troubled heart
With every word spoken, you’re able to soothe.
See what you do to me, capturing me so,
Always letting me know you are there?
For you have found that place in my heart
That forever tells me, that you care.
Your love surrounds me on a cold winter’s day
And rekindles the embers of my fire.
You are my blanket, warm, safe and pleasing
And my object of every waking desire.

packing with his STICK. Eye am sure they loved and lived. In the old same 
fashion of the world.
In the tent and out in the desert some making love a man and woman after all is 
said and done. Can a man have love even a man a gentile dog not overly 
concerned with fate just living and hoping for the future of iff and ever someday.
To have my violette flower to live and love again.
They ate meat and a Passover meal and loved and kissed as many people do. 
Please let it happen for the mee and especially the ewe.
The only thing that made MOSES a Christian was his name.
King David was the same. This would be my prayer to you today?
Can eye Christian?

Possession

Her hand brushes softly the hair from her face
Her lips now pouting, shows me her sweet side
Her eyes like weapons pierce through my heart
To the place where the loving is meant to reside

Her lips now pouting, shows me her sweet side
For they are sultry, yet make her seem demure
I cannot resist her, the very look she now gives
I must take her now; have her, of this I am sure

Her eyes like weapons pierce through my heart
As she permeates my very being, I am captive
My knees buckle as my heart quickens its pace
She is my downfall, as my heart’s now reactive

To the place where the loving is meant to reside
We will go, we’ll become a part of, this very night
She has me firmly within the palm of her hands
As I too will hold her into the new morning light

Response

My heart, it quakes with pure desire
When in the air, resonates her voice
To be with her, just at that moment
Is my true wish, with my own choice
Her voice, a sound of earthly angels
That tickles the very core of my soul
Enters my mind, staying in my heart
She is the half that makes me whole
In her whispers, her sultry speeches
Speaking to me, she makes me hers
I melt at each, every word spoken
To her ears, I respond with a purr

A Thousand Lives

If I had a thousand lives
Not one of them 
Could serve as well
As you wait for me today

If I had a thousand tongues
Not one chorus
Could voice a song
As sweet as your melodies

If I had a thousand souls
Not one mind
Could give me a state
Of being like your thoughts

If I had a thousand words
Not one poem
Could paint the beauty
Captured deep in your eyes 

If I had a thousand years
Not one lifetime
Could compare to you
My crown and glory 

If I had a thousand loves
Not one woman
Could do me well
As you still do me today

Toxic

You're bad for me 
Negatory in a big way 
In Purgatory on my way to Hell 
Loosing my head when you're around 
Acting like a teenager 
Taking risks 
Being daring 
Playing chicken with my life 
Because of you 
You command 
With your upper hand 
Responsibility is forgotten 
When you're around 
Just like chocolate 
You know it's bad for you 
But, you eat it anyway 
You're toxic to me 
But I can't let go

Love Amongst the Flowers


Heaven upon this very earth,
laying beside you of many a flower.
Your beauty enhances the scenry,
bringing me closer to your awesome power.

An attraction giving me encouragement,
to embrace your very essences, and bliss.
Looking into your gorgeous green eyes,
while I give you a passionate kiss.

Colors of the rainbow, fill the field,
all in disarray, and not in a row.
Hidden by the surrounding trees,
so the world will never know.

About what is about to happen,
our wardrobe removed, on us, all is bare.
Upon you, I massage, and stimulate,
and you specifically, tell me where.

I do a manuever, from my part,
that fits, where it makes you scream.
Cuddling together in each others arms,
as our eyes, begin to beam.

As there is no returning,
from where we were before.
A love that has truly progress
and no one can ever ignore.

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.

kiss

kiss 
soft, warm, silky 
touch of something 
deeper 
yet so tantalizingly 
far away 
feelings, words 
and images 
left unspoken 
yet linger 
in the moment 
of a whispered 
breath 
of a lovers 
kiss

First Lovers

In the Garden of Eden,
Planted where Heaven and Earth touched
For a moment, was God's first man.
He brought out its beauty with flowers and fruit
In preparation for the unsuspecting first lady-
But Adam was the one astonished.
When he awakened out of a deep sleep,
He saw before him...  Alas!  A vision,
A woman fashioned and formed 
More perfectly than any ideal he had dreamed of.
And God gave him her hand in marriage
To rule and reign in their kingdom.
They worked together as one and lived in love
(The one only for the other
And the other only for the one)
With no one else in their world.
Each other is all they saw; the man and his wife
Communed with God in the cool of the day.
They were naked and felt no shame,
And this was Paradise.

True Feelings

Sparkling, like the deepest blue sea
As the sun rises upon its vastness,
Her eyes reflect the essence of
True tranquility

Fragrant, as a garden filled with
Lilacs and roses just after a summer rain,
Her skin emits the scent of 
True sensuality

Succulent, as a harvest of Nappa grapes
Being picked for the finest of wines,
The taste of her soft skin incites
True voracity

Passionate, as a master painter
Would give of their life for the craft
She gives of herself offering
True ecstasy

There

She lay there, 
sprawled before me 
upon a disheveled blanket, 
naked as the day
she was born. 
Her body called to me. 
It beckoned my attentions 
as it made 
advances to my heart. 
Life couldn’t be any better 
as this presence of femininity
lays invitingly,
letting me know 
just how she feels with me 
and also just how she 
can make me feel.
I must now go to her,
as her silent invitation 
pounds within my ears 
and her heart
calls loudly to mine.



Again, Happy  valentine's Day!

Distraction

Distract me with your loving hands
Steel from me that desiring glance
Please share with me erotic dance
I want you even more

I need to have you here this night
Please satisfy my lover’s plight
You are my only one true delight
I know that, yes for sure

Candle

A wick that never kindles
Though ablaze with a flame
Wax that never melts
Though fervent by the same
An everlasting fire
That glows brighter in the dark
Is the candle of the true love
That burns inside the heart

The love of a husband for his wife.

Titled:The love of a husband for his wife.
In the poetry I write I like to speak of love,
that special kind sent from the heavens above.
The love of a mother for her child,
the love she gets from their smile.
The love of a husband for his wife,
which is displayed through time every day of their life.
The love of a father for his son,
 teaching and showing things that are right and how they should be done.
The love of people who they haven't met,
and then letting it flow to the love that they get.
The love of lovers' proclaiming their love,
when the floods were over never came back the dove.
The warmth and fitting like a snug glove,
oh how comforting is this thing called love.
I feel sorry for those who never shared the feeling,
of loving that someone till your mind keeps on reeling, 
from that special someone whose so very appealing.
These are just my words that are truly meant,
to explain the feelings behind this great sentiment.
So be very careful in seeking someone,
to whom you give your heart to and share of some fun.
Be very committed to the one that you choose, 
because in this  life loves so easy to lose.
Take this from me for what it is worth, 
love is so great just giving it birth.
So as I end this let all those who knew, Charles Anthony C. loves all of you!!

Flying to the Moon

She makes
Me beg for her.
She makes me want
Her even more. I cannot
Stop wanting her.
No, I need her so.
Cannot be without
Her, as she cannot
Be without me, oh
The beauty shared
The love, the care 
I...am complete in
Her presence, with
Her as my other half
She is my fire on a cold 
Day. Showing love, guiding
The way……To heaven we fly 
To share in the beauty of the sky.
Two lovers 
Flying to
The….

Your Kisses

Kiss me with your kisses

To show everyone you're mine.

Kiss me with your kisses;

Portrait of Love

Darling, I am so proud to wake up every morning as husband and wife.
Without you, my palette would be colorless and I’d live a grueling life.

Your love pleasingly brightens my heart on each and every passing day.
You are my sanctuary. My safety. All my fears just seem to drift away.

You are the true masterpiece. Di Vinci cannot hold a brush stroke to you.
Everyone agrees with me. I now know what I utter is the absolute truth.

My love, when you were creatively sculpted, God had bent a few rules. 
When it comes to perfection. Picasso’s a novice. Michelangelo is a fool.

Sweetheart I’d affectionately hang you on a wall for all to admire and see.
They would witness a perfect husband who is in love with only lil’ ole me.

My dear, I believe you were sent to me from the mystical heavens above.
If I was to put a brush to canvas, I’d paint you each and every time. 

Calling my masterpiece the portrait of love.

True Love - Dedicated to my Husband

A true love is
Someone who can gaze into your eyes and know what you are thinking
Someone who feels your own pain as if it was their own
Someone who can finish your sentences
Someone who understands you inside and out
Someone who has seen the darkest side of you & loves you more because of it
Someone who would give their life for you
Someone you can trust with all your secrets
Someone who will treasure every intimate detail you have disclosed to them
Someone who knows your inner child and the adult you have become

Someone who will be by your side through the darkness and the light
Someone who will hold you when you are scared, lonely and crying
Someone who will love you when you are penniless
Someone who will hold your hand on your death bed
Someone who is always there for you no matter what
Someone who can be your fortress when you need strength
Someone who will love you forever no matter what
Someone who will love each flaw you have as much as your greatest attributes
Someone who will hold your hand through life's journey
Staying by your side regardless of what obstacles cross your path

If you have what I described
You should hold it close
You should cherish your love
Because you have found something
That comes along once in a lifetime
That many of us will never find
That many of us dream for

A Poet's Wife

Here I nestle, against a pillow, all by myself; 
As I wait for you, I‘ve finished watching 
A Mel Gibson film; the title 
I can’t even recall, for my attention is on you; 
Oh, something like this “what women really want?”
Anyway, does it matter to you?
I’m waiting…waiting and still waiting, 
Yet, you don’t want to come near me;
You float somewhere out there; outside this world,
Surely, where we can’t be together;
But if you heed me, on this water bed
We can share what you wanted to write;
How long should I wait?
Or, should I go ahead?
Just a good night kiss is all I ask;
Is that too much, too hard to give;
But your tapping sound is all that I hear;
Crumpled papers, too many; the light’s still bright,
Should I dim it, for you, to be more romantic?
Ah, I can’t take it any longer!
Will I be waiting here forever more?
I don’t think so, ‘cos my eyes, now sleepy;
Honey, good luck on your writing… 
And me, I will close my eyes to sleep!

Sweet Abandon

Your voice, it calls to me
Your eyes, they signal me
Your lips, pucker frequently
What is this man to do?

The passion, so overpowers me
To fight? It’s just futility
Your touch, it sets me free
To lead me back to you

Hour Glass

Time in a bottle.  
We run full throttle.
Trying to catch what we cannot see. 
Wanting and longing for what we know can never be.
He watches me as i move across the room.
His face full of excitement and a little doom.
His eyes are like fire in the night.
His hands scorch while they soothe away fright.
We know we have only a moment before the door is locked with no key.
They will come again and carry him out to sea.
We watch from our tight embrace as the sand falls.
Our love and passion is put on hold whenever duty calls.
His touch and presence is ripped away like a child from the womb.
But when we are together i am his to consume.
No part of me is left untouched or with out his kiss.
He finds my secrets as my breath is forced from me with a hiss.
He holds me close and shows me his love.
My hand fits in his like a warm winter glove.
He whispers softly in my ear.
He wouldn't want to be anywhere else but here.

Sweet Suicide

You are poison to any woman
Wrecking havoc on her life
After you sire her soul with your razor sharp fangs
She will now be an immortal being
That eternally belongs to you
Despite the appearance of freedom
There is no escape from your dungeon
For you grip her tightly by your leash
Not because you want her to love
But so she will remain yours
For once a feminine spirit has 
The misfortune to cross your path
She becomes like a zombie
She is trapped in the abyss
Where you have been roaming 
Since the beginning of your existence
You are unable to escape and pull yourself out
So you are determined to acquire as many visitors
As you can to share your misery with 
Then they too start to sink deeper into this web of darkness
One by one like dominos they 
Plunge deeper and deeper into the abyss
Though you see your loved ones drowning
You will not set them free
The ones who love you are choking
On the tears that they have cried
Because of the pain you 
Have tormented them with
Many who loved you reached out their hand
And tried to help you climb out of your entrapment 
But, you unleashed your monster
Making them regret every attempt to rescue you
That is why when anyone catches a glimpse of you
Out of the corner of their eye 
They should vamoose at once
Because loving you will never bring them bliss
It is only a sweet suicide to their heart

Alone, Hope Cold as a Stone

She went to bed alone,
Not what she would prefer,
But there was only one
for her,
She longed for things that were

But her love had crossed
the threshold into
another life,
She was labelled widow,
To her she was still his wife

Death cuts deep,
Severs hearts entwined
in timeless love
And yet, you know,
somewhere above,
He is still with you,
More than ever, it appears to me
Cause love is more powerful
than death,
And though you can not see
His physical presence before your eyes
You can sense his company

Cast Off Your Garment

Cast off your garment.
Hide nothing from me.
Naked I lie before you;
May your body be as bare
That I can know every whit of you,
That you can learn of me;
Let your weakness be your strength
On this night we have wed.

Cast off your garment.
Be vulnerable with me.
Naked I lie before you;
May your soul be as bare
That I can know every whit of you,
That you can learn with me-
Every strength and all our weaknesses;
Let's share as we are led.

Cast off your garment.
Become one with me.
Naked I lie before you;
May your spirit be as bare
That I can know every whit of you,
That you can learn of me;
This my weakness is my strength
As we join upon our bed.

You Are Missed

Echoes from your pillow...keeps me awake
As I imagine hearing you breathing...my heart aches
So I cling to your pillow...on the bed
Then I reach out...but feel only air on the bed spread
I call out in the darkness...with a frown
But all that returns...is a hollow sound

I jumped to my feet...and rushed to the stairway
I felt your presence...in the hallway
In the family room...your perfume lingered by your chair
As I glanced at your impression...with a stair
I shivered...from the coldness in our home
As I looked at your photograph...by the phone

I walked into the kitchen...where we ate
I imagined you standing there...holding a plate
I smelled the aroma...of a roast in the oven
As my mouth watered...for your taste and some lovin'
Then the shadows returned...from the night lite
As I realized...I was alone here tonight

I returned to our bed...and crawled in on your side
I imagined your smiling face...staring into my eyes
So I wraped my arms around your pillow...where I lay
Then I seen headlights...coming up the driveway
As I opened the door I grabbed you...we kissed
Darling when your're at work.....you are missed

Memories Captured in a Song

 

An old song just came on over the radio, 
   And it took me back to a happy time so long, long ago.
I was young and so were you,
    Two foolish kids having fun and not knowing what to do.
Reaching new heights as our love we shared,
    Searching forbidden places as our excitement flared.
I never dreamed our love would last for forever more,
    As I think back on that night we spent together on that sandy shore.
An enchanting night as you gave yourself to me,
    That night was made to capture all our memories.
A short time later we became wed,
    A whirlwind romance that won’t last is what they said.
Nearly forty years have passed so I guess they were right,
    We haven’t reached eternity the love we pledged that summer night.
But you know it just made our love grow strong,
    As we fell in love listening to the words you said was our song.
You said that song must have been written for just you and me,
    It captured our love forever that night, Thanks for the memories!

The Kiss of Life

He almost slept (as was wonted),
When, alas he saw her lying there-
Still, as if she were in winding sheets
Upon their bed; Drawing near to her,
He heard no breath.  Then, placing his hands
Upon her breast, he felt no pulse-
Vital signs that awakened him
To remove the sheets and her gown franticly!
With longing eyes of desperation
And his face to her face,
He tilted her head back in "Dear God" hope
And with repentant lips touched hers-
Now cold and dry.
Again and again, mouth to mouth,
With hands upon her breast,
As his tears' tracks traced paths to her,
He proceeded with importunity,
When, alas!  Her tear stained cheeks coughed.
Her eyes opened wide; beholding him face to face
In a moment of gratitude and longing desire,
She hurriedly caressed him with forgiving lips-
Now warm and wet,
Again and again, mouth to mouth;
As she placed his hands upon her breast, 
He felt her pulse,
And as she drew him near, he heard her breathe-
Vital signs that kept him thoughtful;
As she disrobed him, they lay passionately
Upon their bed removing the winding sheets;
They slept together (as was wanted).

This poem was written to complement the watercolor painting "The Kiss of Life".

Full Circle

We began our life together
But lived our lives apart;
Our love and requests deferred
Is when the beginning to that end did start.
We left and returned and left again,
And we both were broken-hearted.
But we've returned to life and now our love
Is much better than when we first started.

It's Just You

Just the thought 
of you 
lets me sense 
your being, 
as I can smell 
your perfume 
as it clings 
to your soft skin. 
I can see you smiling 
as the sun glares down 
radiating 
the natural beauty 
you possess. 
I can feel your caresses 
that you send to me 
with your words 
and on the breezes. 
I respond 
to the thought of you 
with a smile 
and a warmth 
in my core 
as feelings rise 
to the surface 
and await 
your breathing voice.

Passion Exchange

Where passion lives, I cannot say
However, it arises every day
It fills my heart and mind with heat
It makes me feel just so complete
Its life is triggered in so many ways
From words to breaths to simple play
It cannot be so easily suppressed
As well, it serves to keep me blessed
I love it when my passion stirs
For that’s the time I share with her

She feels the same, a love on fire
For with each breath, it’s even higher
She says I know not what I do
The effects I have, that keep it true
Her passion rages when I recite
My words of passion in the night
But, yet by day, she says she feels
The passion rise straight from her heels
Into the depths of mind and heart
She keeps it there, to never part

Together, then, we share it well
Our passion, moments, I cannot tell
But know this now and forever more
When passion hits, we close the door

Gal Friday

Some quizative soul,
Wanted to know about that phrase...
Simple enough...
Nothing to leave you a'daze...

See, Friday in the office...
Is the end of the week...
So you gotta make sure...
That your secret don't leak...
Like her calling you at home...
Creating quite a stir...
Your wife now demanding...
If there's something going on,
with her...
So on Friday you tend...
To treat your girl Friday
extra good....
Say the right words...
Doing all that you could....
To keep her sated all
weekend...
You don't want her to become...
Another Mother Hen...
So if you're a wife,
And Hubby dresses
His best each Friday...
Just take the big hint...
And here's what to say....

"You dirty @^^q$$+(!g&...
That seems quite succinct,
And let him know for sure...
You're in power,,
The pens inked...
He'd better show up
on Monday...
With candy, flowers,
and a big raise...
Or you'll bop him one good,
And leave him adaze!!

Do not just touch me,

Do not just kiss me,

I wish to die in your arms, to come back again
I wish it for you, to make my skin burn

Words of Sweet Love

She whispers words of sweet love.
Those penetrate my core and being,
Sending me into a euphoric state
That lasts what seems a lifetime.

Each word, dances fervently within me
Taking its life source from me
And living on its own, within my mind.

My heart, the words permeate and linger
Allowing just enough room for love to grow.
Letting me breathe, one gasp at a time

She whispers words of sweet love.
Those penetrate my core and being,
Sending me into a euphoric state
That lasts what seems a lifetime.

From my head to my toes, tingling excitement
An explosion of the senses, lasting eternal
Allowing my reaction of exhilaration.

She is within me, wanting, desiring, breathing
A physical captive, trapped on another plain
It is her spiritual being that controls me.

She whispers words of sweet love.
Those penetrate my core and being,
Sending me into a euphoric state
That lasts what seems a lifetime.

played with fire

i realize it was really hard for me to see,
how could i've been so blind,
you was slowly killin me,
you played with fire,
end up hurting me,
theres no mercy,
especially coming from me

and if i do forgive
i will never forget
its something you have to live with
boy you will regret
u had your fun while it last,
now youre my past
youre a cheater and a liar,
you made urself look like an as(s)

let me tell you,im no bodies fool
but love made me blind 
i was a fool for you
now it seems, the tables have turned
so horribly you looking
i see you've learned

you loved that one
she didnt love you back
now you knocking on my door
sayin "plz take me back"

ah, you realize
you was a fool
messin up somethin
with one night or two
three,four,
stop knocking at my door,
when in fact,
step on back,
theres no comin back

i thought you was the one
the one i can trust
but i was wrong
you was a bust

you couldve been the one
my lover, my king
building an empire
just you and me

now its too bad,
it ended so sad,
didnt realize what you had,
you so gone, im glad

im better without you
unstressful
im free
you played with fire
end up hurting me
im the one and only
u had a good thing
now you cant have me

fadeout:

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.

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

The Touch

The touch of your fingers running up and down my spine
Makes me so glad you're mine

The touch of what's between my legs and yours
Makes me yearn for more

The touch of your tongue in between my lips
Sends a tingling sensation through my hips

The touch of your hands rubbing my body
Makes my body language speaks even more clearly and loudly

The touch that is being transferred to me
Cannot hide the fire of my body between these sheets

The touch of your kiss on my neck is just a tease
But I love the touch of you giving my body a squeeze

Finally, the touch is where I want it
I'm wanting the touch of every bit of it

The touch then got me from the back
But from the front, I just couldn't hold back.
