until he O.D.'d on Viagra

Princess Needs A New Car

Princess just wants a new car.
I have told her that hers will go far.
'Oh, it's really not cool
driving this crap to school.'
'Do I need that emotional scar? '

'The kids will all laugh at the rust.
When we race, I'll be left in the dust! 
I will save up some cash
then we'll make a mad dash
to the car dealer surely you trust'.

'He will make us a wonderful deal
and I'm sure you will know how I feel.
I will love you so much, 
My siblings... I won't touch.
Just get me behind a new wheel'! 

Now she'll be cruisin in style.
She'll be happy for only awhile.
There will always be better
and we'll try hard to get her
a car that will make princess smile.

Poetry Destryer Vs Gareth James (round 3)

For who is this poetry destroyer
A cop, but who else would employ her?
As she spies no end
No poet, she pretends
Vanilla ice in leopard skin fur.

You ask If I want mommies hug
wouldn’t that be nice, lovely and snug
You just want to hold me
Under that great oak tree
And kiss me on your picnic rug

You want the vultures to enjoy
My sweet flesh, is that your ploy?
Wanting to be them
Eyeing up my sweet gem
Tell the truth, you just want a toy boy 

Well our future together would be bright
Injets, pens and cartridges in sight
You’d color me in
Goodness what a sin
As I would always do the best write

Hang up your gloves as your are weak
You are also classed as an antique
A low blow I know
Don’t cry, don’t go
You can come back with a new technique.

If I don’t hear from the poetry cop 
I will know I have come out on top
Good bye little girl
Give us one more twirl
Now, this should be the final full stop (.)!

P.D, this is the first one ive done. Took me a while. Very good fun though. I kind of limit’s 
the write.

Borderline Poster Child

Who am I, oh, who am I? Just a poser child Borderline? A series of bold contradictions Led on by doctors false predictions Diagnosing all the time... Angry outbursts fill the air, Throwing objects everywhere, They drug me up, because they're lazy It's too much work to help the crazy I hate the pills, but they don't care Take the drugs, and you'll feel better, We'll smoke some bud, and chill together But even if I smoked the weed Surely that's not all I need The lovely high won't last forever I get attatached to everyone, But when they get too close, I run So many arrows in my heart Cupid shoots, but then I part Not phased by all the wrong I've done So put me on more medication, I'll throw in some dedication, But even then it's not enough This emptiness is still too tough All that's left is contemplation

The Bird With A Broken Wing

When all is said and done I sit holding on to my heart
Will you take me in, or will you ask me to depart
I am not sure
Of the cure
But this I know, if you ask me to stay, I’ll never part

When I think of us, all of the passion, in our past
Will you start up with me again, can our love last
I am not sure
Of the cure
But this I know, everyday with you, was a blast

When you hear my call, as it echoes in the autumn air
Will you push me away, or will you pull me near
I am not sure
Of the cure
But this I know, I need you dear, in this torrid love affair

As we reconcile for our love’s own sake, will you bring
Me back, to that summer day, when we had our fling
I am not sure
Of the cure
But this I know, you’ll always be, a bird with a broken wing

Crumb on my Pie Chart

Abusive soul who tormented my heart
I didn’t wait for us to drift apart
     I found inner strength at last
     So don’t look at me aghast
You’re merely a crumb on my heart’s pie chart

A defumigator removed your scent
Into the trash all your hunting boots went
     And those ghastly deer “trophies”
     Ablaze with your spoiled green cheese
Your firearms too in the bonfire were sent

Valentine, let me give it to you straight
Goodwill came by for the very last crate
     Maker’s Mark* for the homeless
     Now that’s ironic justice
Hope your new home in the tent is just great

You wrecked my car and destroyed my credit
So you got off easy from where I sit
     Not that you had much to lose
     Just hair, weight, someone to use
Cupid aims, may your hemorrhoids get hit!

*Maker’s Mark is expensive whiskey

Tainted Love

On Valentines day you broke my heart.
Having an affair wasn't too smart.
Something inside me died.
"Forgive me", you cried.
"Without you I will fall apart"

From your tainted love I have flown.
You thought I wouldn't make it on my own.
Now you see you were wrong.
Without you I am strong.
I would have left sooner had I known.

I bet you wish that I was still yours.
Life's so much better since I closed those doors.
Life is now sugary sweet.
Breathlessly swept off my feet.
Captured my heart is a man who adores.

Bonny Scotland

My tour made me really content
I was pleased with where I was being sent
        The Air Force said go
        I couldn't say no
so over to Scotland I went.

The tour could not have been better
I knew SHE was the one when I met her
        It really was strange
        How my whole life would change
cause I knew I would never forget her.

My time in Scotland I'll never forget
I've never been to a nicer place yet
        I bought home a wife
        she's the love of my life
so to Scotland I owe a great debt.

Do You

Do you love me?
or love me not?
You told me once,
But i forgot.
So tell me once,
and tell me twice,
and i will tell you,
that i love you.
I do believe,
that God above,
Created you,
for me to love.
He chose you out,
from all the rest,
because he knew,
I'd love you best.

The voice in my dreams

Splendour smooth sound that sounded severally sometime ago,
Smoothly stealthy sensating my soul.
Sound sounding second by second significantly,
saying ''I love you Thabiso'' not even swallowing a single saliva spit.

Sweet semibreve singsong sounding siphoned from sun set side.
Sexy but not sex slavish,
Just sound sizzling like a snake hizzling.
When slamming slang its signs that theres something serious.
Smooth sound not simple to slay or slip someone slow or solvenly.
Slender with smashing smile and sound splitting my feelings into smithreens.
Soften sonare that sneaks me sodden,meaning saturated.
Souvenir sound deserving sovereign.

Sound sounding smooth like special strings playing in sovereign's ceremony,
spick and span spontaneously stabling spirit putting stamina,
not from stammer but someone stimulating,stupendous,streamlining.
Stereophonic sound that makes me sweat.
I'm not swagging its just that i still remember her sweet swansong swaying
systematic sound as if it sounds from someone from synagogue.

Since from this voice appeared in my dreams.
I stoped snoring and started to have sweet dreams in my sleep.
You will never know when its the end,
but after telling that''I'm in love with the voice''its the end.

This was just a deram

Letter to Linda

Monkey See

Monkey See~

There once was a monkey named Frank
Who loved to walk the plank
He said too many jokes
Pulled too many hoaxe-s 
Ha! Ha! Ha! Then he got a good spank


Who's that monkey in front of me
I dare to hang with you on a tree
Oh! What I do? Will you do?
Together we are like glue
Is that my flea or your flea?

Undone Hidden Flaws

There once was a garden in Thomaston
But all the hidden flaws show now in sun
     Bombarded by winter cold
     Delicate Easter dress bold
Became frozen, tattered, falling undone

Now that lovely garden in Thomaston
Back in early spring's golden rays of sun
      Rose blooms, tulips open tips
      Flawless are flowers no thrips
Remember Rose Trellis_ love's embrace spun

Enhanced of love two lover’s beseech

As ripple tide to the moon has not lied
By two lover's bide, two soul wills confide

Like water the bride flows in the groom’s pride

From beginning dawn of celestial blue
True love’s marriage, clever, is never through

Cheesy Love

With a fling Cupid's arrows did soar:
Pierced my head, heart, loins and more.
With Valentine glee,
I shopped like a bee.
My soul to the 14th I swore.

I began at Godiva's sweet shore.
Then a florists for roses galore. 
I spared no expense.
Dropped my last common cents
On Hallmarks' paper amour.

The aim of affection I bore,
In Victoria's Secret decor,
Sniffed, nibbled and read,
Then, teary-eyed, said:
"They sell cheesy love in a store!"

True Love

Her hair as red as a flame
Her lips were colored the same

With courtin’ and dowry a must …
… in wooin’ I’ll naught
… ever be caught
Afore me name I’d adjust!”

“Oh, wee lassie, please see:
‘T is you - the woman for me
… I’ve 10,000 wells
… of oil I sells
Marry me”, he said on one knee.

“Oh! My!  I see you’re sincere
My name change … it’s drawing near
… ‘bout that oil …

Now … what’s my new last name, me dear?

The Good the Bad and the Ugly Divorce

Let Him Go (Limerick)

Our mom told us how she chose her beau,
With an “eeny, meeny, miny, moe!”
Of course it didn’t last,
With a choice so half-assed!
But at least it taught the fool to grow!

Had placed us in the middle
Of their divorce wars

She chose to break this conjugal bond without marital bliss.

Love Is

Putting someone's needs before your own
Sharing your thoughts, never feeling alone
         A tenderness so sweet
     That sweeps you off your feet
 A joined journey into the unknown.

It's unbridled passion that does consume
When their scent becomes your perfume
           Smiles lit from within
            Life finally can begin
Two peas in a pod that grow full bloom

Being your real self with no pretense
Filled with ardor, the joy so immense
         It's butterflies galore 
    Can't wait for what's in store
Heart open wide, no longer on defence.

The Conversation

Love and the Cook

I asked a simple question
need to know your suggestion
I know that you love me
I know I am your sweet pea
so what’s this indigestion?

Love and the Situation

Honey I think we are sinking
the tides coming in I am thinking
but then love is above all
did I hear a love bird call?
No it’s the sand in my eye winking.

Love and the Goddess

who suffered from polydipsia

What's Better than That

Written by Andrea Dietrich 
For the "Inspired" Contest
Sponsored by Miranda Lambert

What's Better Than That?

When my chores are all done, and it’s night,
and the everyday world’s out of sight,
with my paper and pen
I retire once again
to the room where I most love to write.

With soft pillows to prop up my head,
I sit comfortably on my bed.
Though I might seem at rest,
there’s a creative test
of real work going on in my head!

I can write anywhere, but I’m wed
to my poetry; thus, I am led
where I’m free to take time
making love to the rhyme,
and what’s better for that - than in bed?

I search for happiness
But never found it again
Though it will be pursued
It will never be attain

I got lost a long time ago
And I give my heart away
It’s been broken to badly
It didn't mend up till today

She left me alone in the dark
Didn't wait to see if I was alive
alone i suffered everyday waiting
For peace of mind to arrive

And it never did came
I would lookout the window
Asking god to please help me
And just make my misery go

But the goodness in life
Has turns his back on me
And left me stuck in a time
To suffer for eternity

Why she walk out the hospital
Why couldn't she see my pain? 
Didn't she care that she might?
Never see me alive again

Now I’m scared for forever
Domed to face the world alone
Never will find a resting heart
And for ever my soul will roam

My heart is empty 
But fill with love to give
But who is going to love me
A man who’s badly defective

So the long road of life
I must travel without love
I know my mother loves me
That the only love, I’m sure off

I wish to find love again
But afraid to get rejected
Then my heart will be broken
And die when it gets infected

Right now I love some one
And keep it secret
And talk to her everyday
But will never reveal it

Will always keep her in my heart
But can never have her in my life
And I know one day I will die
If she becomes another one’s wife

And through this lonely journey
Will have lots of obstacles
Some times when I get tired
I have an ice cream Popsicle

Painting Paradise

As I arrived heaven… in love and light
I searched for my pen and pad, to write
a poem for paradise.
Alluring in my eyes,
hoping to write about this holy height.

Viewing the Holy One’s thrilling throne,
Hear the agile angel’s terrific… tone.
No noon, no night;
lifelong love and light.
My pen can’t paint paradise… all alone.

I had a great job
I had a pretty girl
I was moving up 
Slowly in this world

Had a good position
In the factory
And was working 
For a very good salary

Then comes the war
And things got tough
They close the factory
And at home it got rough

I thought that her love
Was my umbrella 
And when there’s bad weather 
In her arms I would shelter

And umbrella can do a lot
When you are in the rain
It can keep you dry
Until the sun comes out again

For me it seems like hard times
Had just began to pour 
And my pretty umbrella 
Had holes I never seen before

The fancy dinners we had
Now become burger king
And I guess she never love me
Just the gifts I would bring

And I brought home a pizza
And she didn’t take a slice
And when I try to hug her
Her arms were cold as ice

One day she went out
And she never came back
And when I look in the closet
She took every last rack

But what can I do
Sure I’m not the only one
Who lost their job?
And their woman was gone

Always know I had an umbrella
Now I don’t know what to say
When comes the rain
She just up an flew away

But I know the time will change
And so will the weather
And one day there will be some one
Who wants me to be their umbrella?

Soul Mates First Date


Should I lurk or should I lure?
I really don't know for sure.
But at any rate I shan't be late,
For I do not wish to hesitate
To appear at your front door!

I will walk,
And not stalk
Along the way
Will not stray...
(Jump that chalk!)

For your face doth wait
On our very first date.
I surely would hate
To show up late
And miss my fate!


Now it's time to go,
Wouldn't you know?
I had a good time 
And like this rhyme
I did love it so!

But we need to kiss
And then must miss
Each other's face
Away from this place.
(I'll remember this!)

Yes, you can now bet
I'll never forget
How I so love you,
And you love me, too!
(And also how we met.)

Love is love

Love is love

Love is not love until you love 
Love is not love until you have 
read the constitution of my 
Love is not love until you share

Love is not love until you tell 
me that you love me
Love is love when you love me

My definition of love

Baby, the day I saw you first
Dunno how my heart had a burst
You soon became my friend
Would friendship last till the end?
Staying without you, oh that’s the worst

High time it was, I’d waited so long
You’d finally proposed to me with a song
Ooohh I could hardly wait
You were already my mate
I wished nothing would now ever go wrong

We usually sat together like a dove
Now was that really true love, love?
Sad songs seemed so boring
Romance in full sure seemed luring
Now was that really true love, love?

Your lovely smile was now my smile
Our relationship was not at all fragile
I started drawing hearts and roses
We took photographs in various poses
Without you, I couldn’t even stand a while

One day that was, I wasn’t feeling very well
You immediately rang the nearest doctor’s bell
He had a really bad news
From all the doctors we took reviews
I was about to die, they said from their shell 

That is the day when I realized
Our love was never actually very precise
My love had different forms
Between us, we had no norms
I sure had a soon to be demise

Relating romantic songs to you, was not true love
Electricity racing at your touch, was not true love
Your presence at my last breath, telling me 
You’ll never leave, kiss me, caress me
Making me smile, while I die, now that’s true love...

On a Whim, we Swim

Sitting by the beach one summers day
I turned to my girlfriend to say
Shall we go for a swim
It's cold not too grim
Splish splashing in love do we play

Two bodies now exit the cold blue
Only one of us appears to be true
Now shapely and pert
Her body so alert
My desire is now to pursue

To the beach towel she says on the turn
My love you've turned into a worm
The cold water has spoken
At least it's a token
When warmed I'm sure it will squirm

Have you ever ridden in a balloon on the air?

Oh, how I remember the quiet there.

As on the currents of wind we were borne

Watching the sun rise, as from the horizon it was torn.

Riding on nature's majesty...with nary a care.

Passing o'er the desert with all its splendor

Riding the gondola, the true "Air Bender".

These Colors Don't Run Limerick

<                                 once were twin towers on horizon

                                   then came many heros
                                   lost too at ground zero
                                   America's flag still flew in wind

Beach Proposal

We went for a walk on the beach
His hand for my hand did reach
Walking together
It seemed like forever
A marriage proposal he did beseech.

He spoke again said you’re squeezing my hand
As my feet felt like led in the sand
I stopped in my track
Felt my smile crack
Then he showed me the wedding band.

I could no longer contain my feeling
Inside I would have hit the ceiling
Of course I said yes 
To his great request
And now my heart he is stealing.

qoute: "a man chases a woman until she catches him." 

how sweet this maiden of ron’s heart lays
with flair for whooping sensual grace
   in balmy weather
   tied bells together 
now it’s linda’s turn to make the chase

but fragrant lure matched with poetry
imprisons man in lush mystery
   when she swings her hips
   his mind flops and flips
it’s hubby chasing  smooth chemistry!

Love Advice - Revised

If it seems your love life's a mess

and you're feeling romantic distress.

        What you have to do

        is find somebody new

which would help solve your problem, I guess!

That may not be easy to do

if you're looking for love that is true.

        But you must keep in mind

       the one you finally find

should be deeply in love with you too!

Your love life should be a success,

don't ever settle for less

       if there's mutual respect

       then you can expect

very little romantic stress.

Splendor On The Beach

Two lovers are walking the sand
Each gazing at their wedding band
Their deeply felt love
Sent  down from above
Has been touched by God's mighty hand

He peers into her lovely eyes
As slowly the sun starts to rise
The splendor of knowing
Their vast love is showing
Completes them,they do realize

She places her hand on his chest
And whispers that she loves him best
Her kisses are sweet
As his heart skips a beat
They both know their union is blessed

Multilingual in Love

Did you hear about Don? What a guy! On the pretty gals he had his eye. But he had zero chance with them all. At romance he kept messing up, for he was shy. In a language school Don then enrolled where he learned words of love, I am told. Of cute *senoritas he’d ask for *besitas. His tongue was becoming quite bold! The language of his newest dear he’d be whispering into her ear: With “Jet’aime,” “Querido,” “Kuss mich” or “Ti amo” - Through all Europe he roamed without fear. With his sweet words, he’d go on and on till he tired of a girl and be gone. And that’s how a guy named Don, once so shy, is now known as a famous *Don Juan. *senoritas = young ladies (in Spanish) *besitas = little kisses (in Spanish) *Jet'aime = I love you (in French) *Querido = My dear (in Spanish) *Kuss mich = Kiss me (in German) *Ti amo = "I love you (in Italian) *Don Juan= name for a womanizer (Spanish/English) For Debbie Guzzi's Bi-Lingual Poetry Contest

Love is More- Valentine Day Limerick

They say love comes in a gush
I don’t believe all that mush
Not just a feeling…
Love is believing
There’s more to it than a rush

Your loved one gives you goose bumps
You see curves instead of lumps
Your heart palpitates
And sex satiates
Your life is coming up trumps!

But Love’s a decision too
When feelings get old not new
You think of your vow
Fulfill it somehow
And resolve to stick like glue

So when there are angry darts
Or when there are broken hearts
You think of that glow
You give love a go
And all the sorrow departs

Today is Valentine’s Day
Tease and please…now don’t delay
Revive that hot spark
Make love in the dark
Love’s the sweetest game to play.

Love Defined-2

Love defined

There is not much to  love, when it’s  defined
With material things it looks aligned.

Which fails at times and love flops.

Just like them

Play me a classic love song
like walk the line
hold onto me tightly
So that I know you are all mine.

Show me love,
like Do Little and Loretta Lynn
tell me you're story
and about the places you've been.

Say you will always love me
like Dolly Parton 
know I will always stand by you
amongst the chaos, through and through

Don't let my blue eyes cry in the rain
like Willy Nelson
don't let me go, always stay with me
and eternal happiness we will share... I guarantee

Way Back Yonder

I was madly in love once upon a time way back yonder;
When a goose wasn’t a pinched ass, but a bird called the gander.
I was sent off to war and she went only God knows where.
Historians agree that it was all worth it in the end, but they weren’t there.
The old saying is entirely true, absence does make the heart grow fonder.

Salty tear drops fell as her heart broke.
Hopes and dreams evaporated like smoke.
She wanted forevermore!
Not another closed door?
Drowned by memories, that threatened to choke.

Trapped into the detritus of her own mind.
Another love contract left unsigned.
Frozen into inaction!
An incomplete fraction.
Accept destiny that has been assigned?

A shattered heart maybe beyond repair.
Unlucky in love, a fate most unfair!
Does she dare keep trying?
Her crushed heart is dying.
Reluctant to love, her final declare.

Subversive Valentines Day

Once I had a girlfriend and ex-wife.
Two ladies at the same time in life,
Mistake I made this day.
Not proud in anyway.
First mistake, second retake in strife,

Girlfriend I gave flowers for the day.
Ex-wife and I married, oui evay,
Messed up my life again,
Not knowing where I’d been.
Girlfriend forlorn, wrong card I did play.

Ex-wife left me, I got just deserts.
Got what I deserved for all my flirts.
Valentine’s Day, bad karma,
Cupid dealt me, my dharma,
Disengaging me of all subverts.

That's only you

My desires are hanging around my neck like a hanging basket at the door,
And knocking my head all the time as toe making rhythm on a dancing floor,
Early in the morning, jumps to branches as a singing little sparrow song,
Legs walk routinely forward and backward to gain target short or long,
nobody can assess me that's only you, awakening my sleeping spirit.

Two lovers with a second chance
At life enriched with sweet romance,
Repeat their wedding vows
In manner God allows,
With tasteful, simple elegance.

Loved ones and good friends gather near
Sharing in the joy and cheer.
Italian day is fair,
Blessing the happy pair,
Predicting future bright and clear.

May their good fortune never wane,
And sunshine over-power the rain.
Their love will be their wealth
In sickness and in health.
May their deep love always remain.

This Path we Walk

As we walk like children holding hands , swinging our arms together as we walked slowly through the blanket of the Autumn leaves. The path we walk is as it were never ending .The tall forest trees that lined each side , appeared to funnel off to the distant open sky . Sun now setting leaving a Orange sky that blended with the leaves all about us . That cool evening breeze upon our glowing faces . The whisper of the trees as they swayed in the wind , but the loudest sound of it all was the beating of our hearts . No it was not just the chill of the wind that made our faces glow , it was the love in our hearts that showed. Yes we were children for that moment , full of innocents of a love so pure at heart, a love so true , nothing could tear it apart . A love that memories are made of  and dreams that come true .There is nothing so good as the love you have for me and I for you.
  The path we walk that seemed to go on forever , was actually our love through out our lives ,as we travel together through it.

I raised an Australian dingo,
no name came to mind but Ringo;
he jumped on me,
ripped my clothes daily...
it costed me plenty of money!

Only once I left him alone;
good grief... my furniture was torn!
Oh, should I be mad...
or be kind instead?
I'll sleep over it for tonight!

All Ringo did was run, bark and howl,
mistaking a small cat for an owl;
They took him away
to the zoo today;
he'll whimper form his cage, not rest!

I'll take him back, lest he behaves;
his lesson he'll learn:  good manners!
Now, Ringo just stares
to earn forgiveness...
it's fun to play with him and laugh!

The Divorce Club

with rings we were wed
until death do us depart – 
the love died too soon

There once was a romantic wedding
We mistook love for what was in the bedding
But outside the sheets
We were incompletes
So the marriage license we are now shredding

We join many others in the divorce club membership fold
Mistakes so many repeat when the love story is said and told

my heart I gave once

once I gave my heart 
mesmerized by the start 
his eyes so sapphire blue 

I was not ready for this
my thoughts went blank 
literally speechless

had I known the tears I would be left with
I do not believe I would have let love in
this Man , he knew he captivated women 

Always me going for what I can not have 
then in return it is given , leaving me confused
the one I was seeking for sure would never commit 

Commit he did , even in front of a Rabbi 
saying only once, 1 time will I.
with all conviction I believed his lie 

I remember the Fall day he left without words spoken 
the leaves were dancing through the wind 
as if they were trying to tell me something 

the rain cried tears for me that night 
I took his sword collection down from the wall
thinking in true love I will never find again

to die a graceful poetic death with his sword
I awoke with a hangover the next day 
my heart broken  my heart ignored

Can't Live Without You

Do you know who I am? 
The man you love! 
Who stays up nights.
Who thinks of you..
And do you care enough, to think of me, 
for what I am? 

I can't live without you, baby! 
You are the only one.
I care enough, to think about.

I can't live without you, honey! 
You are the only one.
Who cared enough, to comfort me.

Do you know what I need? 
The love in life, you'ld give to me.
And if you share your life with me.
I will think of you everyday.

I can't live without you, baby! 
I need your loving ways.
Your tenderness, your sweet caress.

I can't live without you, honey! 
Your love, just fills me up.
It gives me strength, to carry on.

Do you know where to be, when I arrive, 
to share my love? 
Would you stand next to me? 
So I can hold, and comfort you.

I can't live without you, honey! 
Your love will never end.
It will stay with me eternally..
Till the end of all time..

Menage a Trois

A possum fell in love with a 'coon
And they spooned by the light of the moon
In pet igloo they snoozed
cause the cat took a cruise,
they hoped he wouldn’t come home too soon!

Well, Ole Blackie the cat was real fat
So, his pet food he shared “How ‘bout that!” 
all ate from his bowl
Or so I am told
By the jay in the trees bold chit chat.

Ah true love did we see in the three
the Jay thought why not let them all be
he stopped all the gossips
the biddy’s and trollops
and encouraged this equality!

But I'm glad I got to know you

Thought of you have got me

Now my life is surrounded by

How much longer I wish I knew

known someone doesn't matter

A Fight to Delight

In a snowy wintry Glen one night
Two in love in a snowball fight
One chases the other
Warm places are smothered
Yep, the ones that are so out of sight

Back to their warm Lodge they both go
To recover what's left of the snow
Undressed to delight
As their clothes take flight
They now lie by the fireside glow

Valentine Exchange

a limerick

No longer sweehearts, but I need a gift.
For just a day can we forego our rift?
You get me a puppy dog;
I'll buy you a marble frog.
On Valentine morn, exchange will be swift.

I'll treasure the frog, hand-picked and hand made;
you'll dote on your puppy without charade.
The gifts are no bother
we'll share with each other.
Just be glad, I didn't choose a grenade.

Cracked Ribs and You

My shower last Saturday
Brought throbbing pain to my day
The soap made me slip
Got bruised on my hip
My ribs might be cracked they say

It hurts when I breathe or sneeze
Or if you give me a squeeze
The good times are gone
And so is the fun
My life’s no longer a breeze

The pain is constantly there
Even when I comb my hair
Hygiene’s getting tough 
So is “other” stuff
I’ve become a hairy bear

I wince with the jabbing pain
It’s sure to drive me insane
I can’t sit or stand
Need a helping hand
My bathroom trips are a drain!

My ribs reminds me of you
For no matter what I do
Your smile pokes me here
Your touch jabs me there
But your pain’s sweet.... through and through

Favorite green silk robe Lying in wait for him to come home Dinner is ready The door opens steady Happy he’s finally home * Racing from the car to the door As soon as my shoes hit the floor My heart is capsizing Just now realizing She’s more beautiful than ever before * We’ve finally found our way home We’ll never again be alone Embracing at last Hearts racing fast Every emotion within a single moan

And met a sweetheart ballerina

Antics Dealer 1

Antics  dealer

I dealt  in antiques as well as antics
Once chased a  sterling  ‘bronze’,  very  unique
It  stood  its ground and just blushed
Till, by and by, I felt  bushed
And chastised,  quit things risqué and of  risk.

I Do Thee Wed

Two Sweeties they wed on a beach,
vowed their love with nary a preach.
Though joined once before,
they had love left galore,
and reclaimed their love each to each.

Barefoot they both stood on the sand
reclaiming their lives hand in hand
smiles wreathed with graces
two handsome faces
blessed from on High ain’t love grand.

The Vampire And The Lady Of The Night

There once was a vampire called Vincent
Finding true love was his main intent
As he skulked through the night
Causing women a fright
Biting necks was how he chose to vent

One night Vincent met up with a lady
You might say her job was rather shady
Soon she said what the heck
And she offered her neck
Then he gave her a thrill hot as Hades!

She fell in love as he sucked her blood
Vincent too as he felt his heart thud
Now he was quite love-struck
Could not believe his luck
She made him feel like some vampire stud!

Cupids killer

I left myself open to you like a 24 hour store and you stole from it all that which I value and hold true. You have left my shelves barren…I don’t fully understand it? My heart has been robbed by someone I thought wanted me too, yet only to find that she did not ever love me…I was just being used. As my heart bleed out on a back street alleyway in some forgotten part of a city on the edge of rebirth. I cried dear Lord, oh dear Lord…I have surrendered my love to a defiler of good things. Broken like a priceless vase that can never be replaced, these are the words of a man who’s heart now beats off pace. How could someone be so cruel? I stand hear on the edge of the top of this building, looking into an abyss devoid of my soul and trust of another…seeking only to gain solace in death, from a love misplace in the hands of a cupid killer who was incapable of receiving love.

Rhyme to recall recapture of romance

Writing relative rhymed rhymes
Rhyming with revival rhythmically rhythm
Is not revue but reviewing my role
To resurrect as requested to revive back romance.
When rhyming my rhymes I can revolve revolutionary robust
Rocking like rocky rocks rolling to the right rendezvous,
but today I recite repose as if I repent,
but rely it you will relish,
because its a rhyme to recall recapture of romance in relationships.

I wrote it to rake up real reign
When raspberries were rasped,
Rationing reverie,
Raucously reading romantic readings regularly.
Becoming a receiver reckon receiving reciprocally gifts,
but this is the recital to recapture  romance to recur.

Read this rhyme to refill,refine,reform and refresh romance.
Regain rarefied of relish rained rich rain
Raining rainy with ravishing red roses reddening a red ring around you.
Relieving yourself by reiterating 'I love you Mrs Right',
and wait for the rejoicing remarkably respond to be relayed
'I love you too Mr Right'.
The respond  that revealed the resourcefully resource for resurrecting.
I rouse you because I'm roused;
Be a roman and go to Rome
To see real romance,
and you will romp of being romantic,
and really its realistically real

Elemental Spirit

Fire, a-blazing through the darkest night
Igniting our passion’s frenzied flight
A rhythmic reaction
Instinctive love action
Just the two of us making it right.

Air, the cooling breeze on heated skin
Teasing senses crying deep within
Whispers softly spoken
Urging the need awoken
As eyes, meet the silent Sapphic grin.

Earth, welcomes our embrace as we fall
To the ground with desire’s wanton call
The simplest existence
Offers no resistance
When sensual delights give us it all.

Water, cleansing senses that once lay torn
Returning us innocent as we were born
In sweet love, so divine
With mulled honey wine
Once more true love’s promise has been sworn

Yes darling, my heart’s thine
Your pleasure is all mine!

The MARKed Truth

The whole Truth and nothing but the Truth

The jokes on you, I was fine 
Just keep it real, that's my line
Little did u know
It's part of my flow
From this game I do resign.

Every word from my pink lips 
There Were no mistaken slips
I never once felt love
No wish from God above
I played you with all my tips

hate the player hate the game
No matter it's all the same
The one biggest lie 
I'm sure u will cry
You've only yourself to blame

May God bless us with daughter and son,

Most loving moment or search after TRUTH

(The whole truth and nothing but the truth)

It is too late in the day to select
One from data too vast to recollect
Was it a candy or toy?
Or childish prank of sly joy?
Or wife, kids, work or food? None, I suspect.

It's  the moment I was destined to meet
A  ‘ YOGI’  divinely wise and complete,
Who put me on a road, odd,
Of love and romance with God.
Still after TRUTH ; That day, with love, I greet.

Ps:’ Yogi’ is a term for a God-realised  soul.

The Grass is Greener

We’re not called upon to choose anything we live through;
Neither parent nor sibling nor school nor form of sinew;
Neither colour of hair or eye or skin,
Nor love or hate, nor loss or gain
Nor opportunities nor whence we come. So much is true.

But as much as this truth I hold as true as sunlight,
I know that painful times will time to time alight
When with bitter phlegm you curse
The earth where you breathed first
And wish your day of birth were scratched by He with might.

I know. Same feelings have plagued my adult soul
And the wish for better home to make each day whole
Has been dashed by shameful news,
Where Hope, seeing Hitler, and 94’s Hutus,
Needs to hide its youth to stall the death toll.

But amidst pain, hate and bottled despair rife
There’s the rare love, innocent and hardly grasping to life.
For here, we can give our all
When we choose to keep you from a fall.
We really do it: humble, loving…just like the Lord’s life.

Yes, it’s easier to perceive the weeds in one’s garden
For the pastures beyond gleam in our myopia, hiding their burden.
And seeing that weed can cast a shadow
On all that’s sweet, but cause much ado
About the bitter parts, and it day by day your heart will harden.

Think of the evening breeze on the night grill,
Feeding the flames of a delicious family fish meal.
Think of hitting the unadulterated
Lands of hills where ancient rivers percolated
And happy goats skip, and cattle graze and one can feel

Life whizzing through rustling leaves of dancing old tree or reed,
Playing the music our ancestors learned to read,
Making your lungs touch their purpose,
Dazzling your eyes like a Jabbawockeez pose,
The music we’ve forgotten as we focus on some RSS feed.

Think of the youths wise with tradition re-enacting solemnly
The dances and music handed down from before when Ptolemy
Phrased ancient philosophical data,
To the time of the expansive empire of Sundiatta
Beads stomping the dust frantically in musical poetry.

Picture the pure darkness which crowds the silent night air,
Unveiling the marvellous dotted and scattered there
In the moonlit heavenly canvas,
Watching us from light years past,
And we fascinated by the sparkling magic they share.

So to sum it all up, I know it cannot be perfect,
And sometimes I rant and make massive graffiti of its defects,
But this home my parents chose
Still draws my spirit close,
For the bond is deeper, far deeper than human senses can detect.

Your are PC kind words you do not lack
And when I read you, my eyes alight 
You are a treasure 
Beyond measure
For you, my heart is a flying kite!

You are JB the man of sweet dreams 
As I read your word my heart beams 
Cause tenderness begets   
What the heart can’t forget 
You’re s longing in this happy realm!

You are JP the man with a French name 
I feel you’re soul is too wild to tame 
So I just enjoy the touch 
Of words that fill me much 
You’re sense of deep is as clear as rain 

You are MM an intelligent man with sword 
You’re at the cutting edge of poetry a Lord 
Yet you are too modest 
To write with the rest  
Our collab will wait, until we tie the chord 

You are LM   the man that writes love songs 
I am an admirer from far, part of your throng 
I feel you close 
When I’m morose 
I just turn to u’r lyrics, & suddenly I’m strong;

Ps. There are so many more not mentioned 
What can I say, I’m easy when it comes to falling in, 
And impossible when it comes to falling out, 
I have you all in my heart sweet hearts,

My heart is closed

My heart is closed and will never open again, because it have been hurt it have been stifled
by whom? a girl I thought was precious to me, played me and tarnish my heart and reputation
I know it is not right for revenge but for the fortunate things I have done for her
will not go in thoughts or memories but will surely be avenged
she broke my heart
she threw away my love
I thought she was my desire
she who I aspire
love sometimes can be a heart-ache but what she have done to me should be termed as cruelty, sadness
which have lead my love in darkness
never to love again
from here my love has decayed "HOOPS" it has rotten, vanquish never again to return to the bright light
a love that has now hidden behind a shield, can you believe this? so many times have been wasted 
for who?
a girl who used my love for her own purpose
my love was just for her
just for her
and look what happen I am in pain
a loss received no gain
it's over the truth is no longer concealed your lying has now been revealed
do you know how I really feel?
a heart broken
a love that will never be the same 
shove away by you in disgrace and shamed, all along you were using me as your toy, your little puppet
your self-driven casino game, there is no one to blame 
but myself
who became blind by love from the beginning
and was quite foolish to see this not coming, you rip my heart apart 
then you quickly took away yourself like a plane you depart
you broke my heart when the moving vehicles collide
which signaled that your fake love would slide
from the start you knew what you were doing you slowly plan a plot
and quickly took your stride
yes! you have surely won, you have taken away my pride
GOODBYE! it's sad to know my love has died.

And if I were some hair locks, you would be shampoo
Now if I were a swimmer, use you as canoe
Gee! But on second thoughts;

Ever would I get the timber, light enough like you?

And if I were student, you I would construe,
Now if I were painting, I’ll try to paint you.
Gee! But on second thoughts;
I will perhaps not.
Ever would I get the colors, pretty enough for you?

And if I was a biker, you would be tattoo,
New morning grass I walk on, you glisten like the dew
Gee! But on second thoughts;
It will perhaps not.
Ever would there be water, pure enough like you?

And if I were a movie star, you would be debut,
Now if I were some cook, you would be my stew.
Gee! But on second thoughts;
It will perhaps not.
Ever would I get vegetables, fresh enough like you?

And if I wrote a mystery, you would be my clue,
Now if I had a balcony, you would be my view.
Gee! But on second thoughts;
I will perhaps not.
Ever would I imagine something wonderful as you?

And if were too lonely, we will together coo 
Now should I say I love you, without further ado?
Gee! But on second thoughts;
I will perhaps not.
Easy, it would seem too easy, I just like to pursue.

Happy Ten months to my Katie Bear

A silly poem for my Katie Bear:

Wow, can you believe we've reached month TEN
Would someone be so kind as to hand me a PEN?

For i think it's time to send you a poem filled with LOVE
There's no doubt in my mind your a gift from ABOVE.

I love this girl with all my HEART
That's why it kills me to be APART

So far we've come, just look how much we CARE
Even though i no longer have blue HAIR.

For something has grown, something much DEEPER
as my grandpa says "This one's a KEEPER"

The people at work say "is she the one?"
I just smile and say if she laughs at my pun!

Now i know this is SILLY
and you'll sit and say "REALLY?"

But yes, really, my feelings are TRUE
the only girl i want is YOU

cheers to us, and to many years more
to a love that lasts through rich and poor

To growing old, and in each others arms falling asleep
I'd smile at your slumbering frame as you make not a peep

So one last time, happy anniversary
I promise i'll go buy all of the groceries

We said our vows beside a ski-doo
But then got marooned

So I stripped to get numb-er
Then asked for a hummer
Hoping that my iced cubes would suffice

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?”

Limerick crochet: The Saga of Sea Anne-Anne

Once the Captain of the good ship Anne-Anne
Took to the waves to conquer the main.
Slept round the clock mid-ship
Towed his women aft-ship:
Yet women and ship turned on him in pain.

The Flying Oarsman won America gain
And tamed the raging waters Sea Anne-Anne.
One cup he never won
Was the Darling fourth one:
A touching tale this: the tears shed by Jane!

I must confess how strange times are these
When young people can love as they please;
We've come quite a ways
From Shakespearean plays
Regarding the "birds and the bees".

'Tis odd how young maidens fair
Have only to toss their hair
At young boys naive
To make them believe
That they are in love; now ensnared.

And young men think diamonds and gold
Will draw beautiful maids to their hold,
Thus their hearts will be torn,
And they will all mourn
Their foolishness when they are old.

But it was cause he knew I would be true

Splish Splash

My love and I shared a bath
Inevitably we thrashed
Our bodies so lathered
Lovable bubbles now gathered
Sensuous moments amidst all the splash

Then came our moments to dry
Towels in wandering apply
Touching, caressing
Sharing our blessings
Our love you could never deny

So then came our moments for bed
Face to face on our pillows were said
Sweet nothings we shared
For under the covers we're bared
Close your eyes, and dream what you've read

And I being young but bolder

The Dish and the Spoon

There once was a girl we called Spoon
Because of her round bottomed moon
When Hey Diddle Diddle
Tried to play with her middle
The Spoon said I don’t play that tune

Another gal we called the Dish
The object of my nightly wish
She was every man’s dream
But played for the wrong team
She walked with a sway not a swish

Then on a bright June afternoon
Their eyes met and they both did swoon
Then you know the rest
Despite our protest
The Dish ran away with the Spoon

                     The queen of birds Sari dear lived in the mango tree
                     I asked her to come down and take a saree from me
                              She asked wide-eyed the price of it
                               I said,”Sari, you’re a cute tweet”
            She made faces, chirruped short, and flew to the next tree.

A  saree  is a South Asian female garment that consists of a drape varying from five to nine yards in length and two to four feet in breadth that is typically wrapped around the waist, with one end draped over the shoulder, baring the midriff. 

                      Sari came down and sat on the bay window
                    ‘Dad’, she said,’ you must chain the devil Frido’
                                      “He is a gawky brute
                                  Just now he ate up a coot
                       He needs your boot and a slap on his credo”.

                 Sari tweeted my wife” O mom, don’t pinch my behind”
                   My wife re-tweeted,” Sari, You are not of this kind”.
                          “Sorry to say you have no proper bum
                           So, Sari, how can I be a pinch bum?”
                   Sari re-re-tweeted, “Mom, a lie, my bum is twined.”

                      Sari came one day with his creaky husband Suk
                  “Dad, teach Suk a lesson, he must know how to cook"
                            "Sari, my darling, you’re a sweet fraud
                          Don’t crook Suk’s head with a teaching rod
                      Better teach him how to fly by hook or by crook"

                  Sari, my daughter, in mid September, gave birth to a girl
                   She was a ball of furry delight, eyes were pacific pearl
                               I said, "Sari ,you are now a mother
                               So you must not be antsy like other
                Sari hugged her child,said”dad, no worry, she will be a whirl"

His Trip To The Moon limerick

There once was a boy we called chase-face
he dreamed of reaching outer space.
With this dream in his heart
our family will part
and this boy we never could replace.

We all dreaded that day late in June
when we knew he would fly to the moon.
So a party we had
even though we were sad
as the countdown was scheduled for noon.

Chase couldn't get rid of the grin
or the drool that was right on his chin.
He was laughing so loud 
while we stood watching proud.
His journey would finally begin.

The trip was a total success.
Of course, we expected no less.
We've done all we can.
He now is a man
and all that he sees he will bless.

Enjoyed making love almost nightly
But he got such a clout

Now he’s holding his toolbox quite tightly

Sky-Scraped Ruins

The evening fresh, 
stars allure, 
birthed- ground-breaking. 

To look back, seems feeble
forward, Vigorous.

It is almost too late, 
I have hollowed a place
for each hope I carried, 
trickery twisted imagination. 

The sky littered, 
calling...all visions to death, 
each cup of soil, 
befriending faith with roses
as I walk away, 

There are no more stones-
upon stones, 
upon stones, 
only hours perhaps,

The Point

O grand and gracious Jehovah
Grand Author of creation
Source of my inspiration
Cage me within the shade of your umbrella
Accept my pleas for forgiveness
Allow me dwell in your blessedness
Protect me as I sleep
Like a shepherd would his sheep
O wise and merciful One
You sacrificed your only son
For my sake to prove a point
A point being the joint
Between creator and creation
Love me Lord in the name of your son.

Roaming around

Roaming around

Proud of her passionate lover,
Fearless she relished to hover,
Caught one day in a mess,
Crazy not to confess,
How long could stay under cover ?

On This Day

Unmoving, sweltering, its evening falls,
Unrolling slowly a knotty unbleached cotton pall,
Turns unceremoniously and exits - 
      the day ending eight years,
Eliott's[1] sends a breeze, a silent scene ends call.

Remains and Residue of Love

56 years. 

Now he lives on the 8th floor, 
she lives on the sixth. 

2 floors, 
two buttons, 
and 20 feet away. 

He travels 
by cane. 

they don't make those things 
out of saw-dust, 
she lives 

2 buttons, 
two floors, 
and 20 feet away. 

Too much momentum 
to spin her attempts, 
he waits for her guide downstairs.

Paces in front of the window each day, 
and when she makes her move, 
he hurries down 
-well, he tries- 
so she won’t assemble outside, 

Always wondered what they talked about, 
perhaps the loss of their only daughter 
thirty years ago. 

perhaps not.

That other day 
she sat alone, 
and I thought 

... he may have just had taken a nap... 
and as she rested there waiting, 

she joined him, 
in the only way she could.

Her past formed her life

As a girl she always wanted to be loved
But no one ever showed her what it meant to be loved
She tried to be joyful and make others happy
But nothing ever changed her life was still crappy
One day she met someone that started admiring her
He started to show what love meant to her 
It was pleasant at first fun and gifts
Then something happened she felt like jumping off a cliff
He started doing things that didn't seem right
Every time she tried to stop she lost the fight
She thought she caused it she really didn't know
She didn't get why this man would act so low
She felt very guilty hid it in her heart deep
She forgot how to sleep all she did was weep
As her sadness grew the man finally started to see
He decided to leave and she was finally free
She started living her way started to forget the pain
But as she moved forward it was in her heart as stain
While she grew older she started going the wrong ways
Men did whatever in bed while she just lays
They came and went but never wanted her as a wife
Drugs boos and men became the definition of her life
Depressed she knew her life was going down the drain
Behind the doors she cried hard like rain
She envied the happy girls never would she have that luck
This was her life always she would be stuck
Her life turned upside down things started to go well
She met her first love she was finally out of hell
He was there all along she just didn't know
He finally revealed himself when he started to glow
I think you may know him
But may not have seen him
His name is.... God

Menage a trois PART 2

A possum fell in love with a coon
And they spooned by the light of the moon
In pet igloo they snoozed
Cause the cat took a cruise
They hoped he wouldn’t come home too soon!

Well, Ole Blackie the cat was real fat
So, his pet food he shared “How ‘bout that!” 
all ate from his bowl
Or so I am told
By the jay in the trees bold chit chat.

Ah true love did we see in the three
the Jay thought why not let them all be
he stopped all the gossips
the biddy’s and trollops
and encouraged this equality!

Cupids Arrows

Cupids Arrows
Written by Catherine Reinke 

Chant our gods
“Play today
entertain us!

All day long
up above,
contemplate mans
in love.

Boredom demands
our Gods be entertained.

Mans creators
have gone insane!

Perverted humor
at mans expense,
dance around, dance around,
black comic stench.

Cupids arrows, shot defiance
married bliss, their long reliance.

Isn’t it amusing to watch and stare,
cupids arrows
torment this pair?
Cry they do
its just not fair
to find each other 
in love so rare.

Infected and spell bound
a tangled delight
bewitched poison cupids
Bow did bite.

These love arrows not
random are shot
but to the unwanting
 unsuspecting lot.
Love is got
such a shot
between legs hot.
Hot ,for you is what I got
from cupids arrow
now that’s shot.

    Our lives are one of constant care,

    As we are always running from here to there,

    Yet the care we show is no care at all,

    Except for ourselves since Adam's fall,

    And still He came, His death and life for us to share.

Once bright colours dimmer brightly glow
But worn my old mind still sees
Things lost you cannot please
Happy ecstasy I am now with my beau

     Surely increased the venous flow !

Take A Break From Love

I no longer want a part, Of any one man’s heart, It’s a deceiving game, Always the same, Every time you start. I find it brings much pain, And a lot of emotional strain. It was made for fools, Who are always used, Over and over again. I’d like to leave love behind, To let it never enter my mind. But it’s hard to see, If you are ever free, For those who love are blind. Will love ever be found true? Has it been found by any of you? A man in my books, Has only his looks, And without a man, I’ll do. I’m sure that I can survive, But from love, can I hide? I’ll just play their game, And give ‘em the same, Then their love can take a ride. This time, I’ll call it quits, And certainly stick to it! But, if another man, Should take my hand, I’ll probably fall for it. Florence McMillian (Flo)

My Meal and I

The meal I require tonight
Will satisfy my appetite
As she lies on the table
Oh boy am I able
To relish in her sweet delights

First her curvaceous curves
Enjoyable for any serve
Taken abreast
How my heart requests
So pert in tasteful observe

Her sweetness is sure to follow
Like a bear in honey I wallow
Then like a lion I roar
As I head back for more
Sugary just like a marshmallow

My love has a craving to share
For into my eyes she does stare
She says "Hun are you able"
It's your turn on the table
I have teeth so you better beware

You Do,You Do,You Do

When you go home.
You say you do.
You love me one.
You love me two.
You do..You do..You do..

And when you go out.
You love me more.
You love me three.
You love me four.
Don't forget to shut the door.

When you stay in.
Perform your tricks.
You love me five.
You love me six.
Perform your magic.
And get your kicks..

And when you go south.
You hesitate.
You love me seven.
You love me eight.
Don't forget to shut the gate.

We celebrate.
Then party again.
You love me nine.
You love me ten.
We'll never have to worry again.
We won't.

You get me on the telephone.
You tell me ten times.
You love me so.

You need me now.
You tell me so.

You tell me ten times.
You love me so.
You do..You do..You do..

My favorite republican for 2016

The Castros make Rubio rowdy
To them he'll never say howdy
Marco's so steady
So why he is ready
To kiss the kings who are Saudi?

Author's Note:  Are Saudi Kings beloved by their people and so much better than Cuban dictators?  Do Saudi royals not need body guards or a secret police force to maintain order?  Do they travel among the people and never use private jets?  Are the decisions made in Saudi Arabia completely democratic and open? Does the royal family limit its personal wealth out of a sense of fairness to its people?  Do they treat women fairly?  OMG--Could Raoul and Fidel be so much worse than our friendly ally?  Never forget who crashed the planes into the twin towers.  They weren't Cubans!

But storms now don't trouble our hearts.
Wind is more consistant than he
I'm in a perminant lee
I need an actor, or a brand new part.

Finger Tip Sweep

I can pull out your heart. 
Then if I wish I could put it back in. 
Then mend your skin with love because I am a man. 

It’s a two way street the lying and cheating.
Then honesty comes - then learnt eventually wrong most always win.
A soul bouncing on fingertips needs time to heal and grow.

The pain,  gain, agony, blindly - deceit 

The love people spare just not to be alone - the unknown fingertip sweep.

I Fell In Love

I fell in love; my heart goes thump, thump.
You, dear one, a beautiful tree stump.
Creases that shine so clear.
Your presence, calls me near.
Say you love me, while I have this bump.

My heart craves in desire, for your rings.
Fire burns inside, as the minstrel sings.
Your caress sometimes rough,
I am your man; I am tough.
Say you will be mine, please, my lust springs.

My darling, thus true, you are my stump.
Adore resting on you, on my rump.
I ache for answer, soon.
Before the budding moon,
My sweet love, do not make me a chump.

Oh, love of mine when the dawn awakes
My promised kisses are yours to take
In the first golden light
As we seal our loving night
Your gentle heart I will never break.

Dear lady you are all I desire
Come fill my dreams of love with your fire
And I will sate your needs
With all my words and deeds
And serenade you with ancient lyre.

And as we shed the fear of yesterday
To embrace the future’s hope
We are joined by love’s rope
To be one, forever and a day.

Chirty Limerick

There once was a girl we called Chirty.
She was happy just when she was dirty.
She would sleep with the dogs
and play with the hogs
and stay up catching bugs till 2:30.

She just loved anything that could crawl.
When she'd show me, you know I would bawl.
I can't stand the bugs
but I'll still give her hugs.
(even when she hangs them on her wall) .

One day she was catching a snake
I was praying it only was fake.
It was not only real
but a really BIG deal
when it joined in our swim at the lake.

She's an animal lover, no doubt
and she never stays in.....only out.
When she's old she may change...
that would seem oh so strange
cause this is just what she's about!

I once knew a guy named Constantine
Who fell for a girl named Clementine,
And they started to date
But this was her sad fate,
Dumped her the week before Valentine.

Poor Clementine her heart was broken
She thought that he loved her for certain,
After Valentine's day
He called her to say,
I'm sorry, I was so mistaken.

Well Clementine took back her man
But he didn't know she had a plan,
He asked her to marry
She said she'd be happy,
At the Alter she left him and ran.

This is for you cheap fellas out there
Who break up with your women each year,
Please know what you're doing
We love to get even,
And then you would be living in fear.

The Smithsonian's National Museum of Natural History in Washington, D.C. has received one of the world's largest and finest ruby gemstones. The 23.1 carats (4.62 g) Burmese ruby, set in a platinum ring with diamonds, was donated by businessman and philanthropist Peter Buck in memory of his late wife Carmen Lúcia. This gemstone displays a richly saturated red color combined with an exceptional transparency. The finely proportioned cut provides vivid red reflections. The stone was mined from the Mogok region of Burma (now Myanmar) in the 1930s.

Fatherless Dream

The man I will never know
A shadow
Not even a footstep to follow

No memories to rely
Fainted pictures
No reason to cry

Would I be what I am woe
Useless reasonings
For only God would know

My father has gone, passed from sight
Curse death for he hath won the fight

Why then do I search for thee
A heart broken
My mother crying over me

Dreams are not all they are meant to be
False hope
Knowing it wasn't left to me

Not a son to continue on
A blood linage
Lost forever in a fatherless son

On foxes and fawns, it worked fine!
So full of his hairiness
he approached Clare. Can you guess?

“Hunh?” Sir Wolfman thought, “can she
really have thoughts that are loftier than ME?”
But something about her
made William's heart splatter.
Now Clare and William are happy.

A friend is what I am by night and day,
Regardless of what other people say,
Oh, the good thing you must note, 
Is that peace and love I sought,
So sleep well, I take not your wife away!

When it happens

when it happens to you what do u do?
do you tell and let him know?
do you sit and think about it?
or maybe you try and try to forget!!!
you think too yourself maybe it would pass,
maybe its a phase. 
sorry try again, its not!!
you realize that some things come and go,
but the best last forever.
and at the same time you wonder why.
why and how can this happen?
I love to love hard,
I love to love long,
I love to love you,
But im afraid that love runs short
what do i do?
when it happens!!!!

Thank Mother

           Whether or not you were there it would have been the same;

        you would have cast no shadow, you would have had no name;

                                                  if not for her,

                                             your own mother,

           from whose own life-sustaining, love-giving womb you came.

Puppy Treats

I know longer weep for my beauty of my sweet
I will forever give you plenty puppy treats
My Sheena so pretty
You danced so plenty
I'll be dancing with you in heaven when we meet.

' Sweet, Little Man ... ' (Limerick # 3)

             ‘ Sweet, Little Man ’

There Was the Sweetest, Little Man, Named Nate
    Who was so Bald… He got a Headache
      From the Kisses, that were Planted
On His ( 2 Month-Old Head )… He Demanded …
“Why Won’t Mama, Put A Cap On My Pate ?
