A Tale of Fire and Ice

Part I: Ice

He shines like silver midnight moon -
cool marble statue, this tycoon.
And though he makes the ladies swoon,
of ice he’s hewn.; of ice he’s hewn.

He’s poker-faced and can deceive
competitors and can achieve
most anything, but can’t conceive
of Genevieve, of Genevieve.

Like Neptune, distant from the sun -
relationships he chose to shun.
He thought the search for love was done.
He has no one; he has no one.

Now love’s allure has come his way.
What will he do? What will he say?
Will he grab hold, beg love to stay,
or let it stray? Or let it stray?

Part II: Fire

This dragoness disguised in lace -
passion’s flower with angel’s face,
precisely picks the time and place
each dream to chase, each dream to chase.

Like ink the color red, she stains
the hearts of those whose love she drains,
and then she leaves when naught remains
No lust she feigns; no lust she feigns.

And now there’s one who would suffice.
For him alone, she’d sacrifice
her everything, so he of ice
she must entice, she must entice.

So Genevieve now strikes the flame.
Will man of ice his love proclaim?
Beneath her fire and his cold frame,
they’re both the same. They’re both the same.

Love Gift

I saw Love climb upon the wind
Heard the laughter in the breeze
Tasted lilacs, jasmine, and honeysuckle
With a turn and twist Love caressed my skin
The scent of dark chocolate filled my nose 
        A deep longing-hunger arose within me

Love was off again gathering the rain clouds
A shower of tears . . . refreshing
My parched soul drank deeply
Sweetness spread across my tongue
My body filled with Love’s offering 
         Now joyful tears fell from my eyes

A drowsiness overcame me and I slept
Love slipped into my dreams
Warm light cocooned me and filled my lungs
Bright colors danced upon my fantasies
An incredible energy pulsated throughout my body
          Love took my hand and laughing -- we chased the light

Breathing hard I asked Love . . . this precious gift, why me?  I am unworthy
Love answered:  I Am the whisper in the wind
The Spirit of truth seeking and restoring . . . you are wholly loved
Of the mighty Kings  --  Faith, Hope and Love
I Am the greatest . . . and you are worthy to Me
         Go now and be Love . . . and know, I Am with you always

I Wondered

Last night I lay in the darkness of my room like i always do Me, a dim lamplight and thoughts of you my only companions Everything was still Till I could listen to first pit pattering of raindrops Upon my. Windowsill Falling, falling gently down my amber rose leaves garden. Falling gently ,wildly, gushing , drumming, Like your heart beat on those scented nights in the hallway by the fireplace, face to face I wondered if water shadows were there too In a distant land, in another path and in a different time I wondered if you think of me too,over a cup of tea whilst reading your newspaper, or just sitting in your porch..I wondered.. Last night I sat, staring off into space. My newspaper not opened. My lemon tea gone cold. Everything so still, until the rain started to fall, dripping slowly, rhythmically, then faster, faster, harder, harder, quicker, quicker splattering onto the broken concrete sidewalk pounding like the beat of my heart when we cuddled under the moonlit sky. I wondered do you ever think of me does the moon bring back memories do you lie awake at night in your room dreaming of me....I wondered..

My Dreams

                                Close your eyes and forget the rain
                                   Dream about the sun and heat
                                          a sunny summer day
                                       Dream of waves who sigh
                                          so quiet on the beach
                              Swimming naked with the one you love

                                       The dream of happiness
                                       is more than the dream
                           A dream about strawberries with cream on
                                Do not forget the roses and violets
                                          that smells so good
                            Running barefoot in the freshly cut grass

                            Close your eyes and dream your dreams
                                 Daydreaming as sweet and good
                      they are secret, I will not share them with anyone
                                  Imagine if life was a dream .....
                                         A wonderful dream
                                 and the world was full of love
                      and intimacy between all the people on earth
                                     My dreams are made of 
                                       hope, faith and love

Frozen Howl

Inside a knowledge turning cogs on this wheel
born from the darkness a heart rules supreme
fear in one wish looking towards tunnel light love
All that will remain when all turns to dust threads of life dance
kneeling weak alone humble and meek finding a balance

Weeping rivers flow haunting sea waves turn the key
truth is something beautiful touching deeply chords
Chilling whispers rise warm oasis warmly embraces hold
creeping inside beauty beams within shadows 
Dancing starlight kissing ocean reflections twinkle
sparkle glisten teardrops coldly ripple out

Floating on a cloud of breath precious beauty
a mystery that means something special 
finest mother of pearl gem coloring rainbow jewel shines forever
Frozen dew quicksilver lining echoes time answers always
cold as ice crystals dazzling diamond stillness pure 

Frosted vision clear cutting ivory white one cool snowflake falls
baptism in regal glowing crowning full face splendor enchants a ball
walking along golden strands looking across the sea midnight strikes
Sleepless nights held over and back destiny calls your name
utopia faraway dreaming our love complete

Up with sun at the crack of the dawn Bluebirds are playing and singing sweet songs Two deer are feeding on the edge of the field The west wind is blowing all my cares away Mist is rising off the shimmering lake Lost in in the glory No more can I take Looking around at all the beauty and grace I can only imagine the look on your face The time I first met you The stars shone so bright The full moon was rising Illuminating the night That look in your eyes When I leaned in for a kiss The words that you said On the falling star wish Daydream of that night as I look at the lake Come into my dreams and we'll never wake

Dance among the flowers
Let's have a party and a tea
Dreaming of the future, and
How I think that things should be
Life should be an adventure
A Prince should take me to the Ball
The wind always fills my sails
When I'm with him, gonna have it all

I dream out loud to make it clear
This little girl has no fear

Growing up is not easy
So much is not what it seems
No time to smell the roses
Or to think of childhood dreams
Life just becomes survival
My Prince was really a pauper too
My ship never left the harbor 
Happy days are all too few

My dreams long gone, nothing near
Grown up girl.. So many tears

Hide behind the surface
So you think that I am strong
Inside I'm falling to pieces
How could everything go wrong
Life can make you bitter
A shell of what you could be
Drowning out in the ocean
So far out that none can see

Prayed for a miracle, a new song
That a true Prince would come along

Met you the next morning
Your humor made me smile
The way you looked at me
I hoped you'd stay for awhile
You came a little closer
Then you gently took my hand
Words can't describe it all
Lost dreams were being fanned

You were my miracle, you were my song
All of those childhood dreams, They were inside all along

Dance among the flowers
Let's have a party and a tea
Dreaming of the future, and
How I think that things should be
Life should be an adventure
A Prince should take me to the Ball
The wind always fills my sails
When I'm with him, gonna have it all

I dream out loud to make it clear
This little girl has no fear

You were my miracle, you were my song
All of those childhood dreams,
They were inside all along

*This is the story of a little girl growing up with amazing dreams, only to be devastated by the harsh realities of life.  Then by chance, in her adult life,  she meets someone that restores her belief in dreams she thought were long gone.

As long as there is prayer
You'll find me on my knees
Looking up to the heavens
Crying out to God, "Please!"
And as long as you're out there
If I have breath left in me
With a longing in my heart
I will set out on life's sea
Looking for where we.. were we
Girl it's killing me 
Dying cause we're apart

You were once 
filled with joy and laughter
We sailed together 
without fear
We had our song 
we loved to sing it
Now I sing alone
and no one hears
a tidal wave of questions
Looked for answers 
nothing was clear
Sudden storm 
we didn't see it coming
You lost trust
quickly disappeared

So as long as there is prayer
You'll find me on my knees
Looking up to the heavens
Crying out to God, "Please!"
And as long as you're out there
If I have breath left in me
With a longing in my heart
I will set out on life's sea
Looking for where we.. were we
Girl it's killing me 
Dying cause we're apart

I set sail
in unchartered waters
Breeze of hope
comes from nowhere
Set my course
you are my purpose
Want to show you
I really care
Strong belief
girl, i'll find you
When I do 
you're gonna see
That in my arms 
love will find you
My doubted promise
was always true

So as long as there is prayer
You'll find me on my knees
Looking up to the heavens
Crying out to God, "Please!"
And as long as you're out there
If I have breath left in me
With a longing in my heart
I will set out on life's sea
Looking for where we.. were we
Girl it's killing me 
Dying cause we're apart

Kiss the Wind

I lay down
A lazy Sunday afternoon
The first winds from the north
Blowing snow like a blanket upon our souls

I fall asleep, in a haze of dreams
Where there she appears and forgive the obvious
The woman of my dreams
Never undressed, mind nor body

Here, in my delusion I beg for her heart
Tears roll down upon her chest
I whisper softly, tell me, tell me
You are my twin, in coldness and the dark

Entwined, we breathe slowly in silence
Words have flowed like the tears of the past
I hold on, in love, in desperation, in ecstasy
I caress her hair, and whisper be mine


Then I awoke, another sad day

Sing Solitude-Play Soltude-Confetti's Song

Hidden away 
between the broken chimes
of church bells 
lies the dream of a man
the waltz of a butterfly
and love for one woman
He carves her name from a star
on a pebble~
burying it deep
where corals sleep

Across the moon 
wishes concieve
from moist salt on his cheek
in the womb of an ocean
ocean so deep,ocean so dark
dark as the night in his soul

Hidden away
between the broken chimes
of church bells
lies the dream of a woman
the soft breeze of a petal 
and love for one man
She paints his smile from a rainbow
holding it high ~
where sunsets splash
in the sky

Across the moon
wishes concieve
in the womb of a desert
desert so steep,desert so dry
dry as  each crack on her lips  

Hidden away 
between the melidious chime
of church bells
lives the love of a man
lives the love of a woman
where oceans meet
where deserts greet
where stars collide
where dewdrops fall
Lashes caress
the dream in their eyes 

Play Solitude...Sing...

A Heart Lay Broken

A spirit flies alone there's no love true without saying goodbye 
soul searching deeply without sacrifice your gone 
walking golden sands inside the heart all wars are won 

Hand in hand slowly strolls on golden sands footprints left
as you're daylight played warm tricks our destiny ties us beyond
put under one spell lost in lonely you one beautiful memory

Drowning inside your Heaven drifting faraway tears
to hear the winds breathless whisper softly howls out your name
holding you dream magic as your voice enters feelings flow 

An aura of beauty appeared within reality coloring a rainbow
or was it just a figment of imagination never existing
strung along believing in something real 

Salted from the deep ocean waves crashing currents 
rising emotions turning tides weeping is it wrong for me in the scrapyard 
among'st twisted metal to want to hold you love one last time

(Terza Rima in unrhymed Tercet poetic format)

In Your Pillowed Dreams My Love

In your pillowed dreams my Love hold me close to you,
Hear me whisper my Love softly the whole night through.

Throughout the night my chest your pillow dreams float gentle and slow,
We walk to the stars my beloved dreams of Love gently do flow.

Tenderly from my honeyed lips ruby red I place a kiss upon your own,
Can you hear my heart beating gently as Love's sweet passion Is shown.

My hands shall caress you with gossamer touch as on love's bed we lie,
Peace comes to our Loving Souls as tears of joy our heart's cry.

Downy soft my auburn tresses fall across your chest In sweet surrender,
Intoxicated you caress and drink In the soft scent of curls you hold so tender.

Kiss my heart gently our heart's Love song we shall sing,
As our heart's ascend to Heaven on Love's own golden wing.

Two bodies this night were destined to be one 'neath the Heaven's above,
Within pillowed dreams holding close their one and only true Love.

Goodbye, My Child

Where cradled canyons sing
Of ebony wood in the forest
There lies a gurgling spring
Where cockcrows sing their chorus
To the melody of singsong birds
There I’ve concealed my sensuous words
Filled with befitted signs
The saccharine whiff of my designs

Come to me my mortal youth
To the wild realm of your truth
Where nymphs and gnomes abound
For the earth is filled with weeping
And only your tears be found

Where the fogs of night are fountains
Spills of glistened moon ignite
By distant silhouette mountains
We dance with passion of fight
Entwining ancient stance 
Mingling hand in hand we dance
Till the mountains smile on high
Near and far we spring
To pursue the realest of dreams
While the world cries at its seams
Anxious in trouble to cling

Come to me my mortal youth
To the wild realm of your truth
Where nymphs and gnomes abound
For the earth is filled with weeping
And only your tears be found

To where the ridges merry make 
From the beaks of wooden bright
In sparkly pools the ghouls awake
That scarce to stir our night
We watch for seekers down under
Muttering secrets in their soul
We bid them lucks of shivers
Dipping gently in
From reeds that hide a tear of a foal
Under the gentle rivers

Come to me my mortal youth
To the wild realm of your truth
Where nymphs and gnomes abound
For the earth is filled with weeping
And only your tears be found

Far away she shall ever churn
The taciturn eyed
She’ll listen no more to turn
To the working mills beside
Or the scrubbing of the barn
May peace weave in her song
She shall wave in the yarn
To a haven known as Belong  

Come to me my mortal youth
To the wild realm of your truth
Where nymphs and gnomes abound
For the earth is filled with weeping
And only your tears be found

For she comes, the mortal youth
To the wild realm of her truth
Where nymphs and gnomes abound
For the earth is filled with weeping
And only her tears be found

Paranoid love

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

Beauty Kisses The Beast

Sun golden shining warm upon the back speaks
wind cutting cold chills freezing thoughts held
captivating love standing a vigil faraway dream

Touching warm fingers of light in a deep blue painted sky
bewitching clouds gunbarrel grey shooting magic wishes
silver shading arrow points out into the softest peach charms spells

Everything spellbinding shines amazing beautiful enchanting 
snow covered mountains cold winds howling and whistling tunes
bells in the distance calls you're the rock one clings to on Trawbrega's shores

Drawing behind the eyes wind bellowing whispers a blessing tides turn waves
inside joy burns one candle warmly flickering happiness butterflies dance
blue blazes to see the soul of a deeply treasured jewel forever sings

I read your stunning write 
For more than just one night 
Then every comment below 
I think that you should know 
They're right 
They're right 

Such beauty you reveal 
Your longing verse has such appeal 
Your yesterday when dreams were real 
Your yesterday when dreams were real 

I muse of a moonlit night 
When stars shinned bright 
Our love felt so right 
Seems it was just last night 

But that was then and this is now 
As the sunrise breaks I don't know how 
To think or to feel 
To cope or even deal 
With yesterday's when dreams were real 
With yesterday's when dreams were real 

With yesterday's when we were real

-Angel Of Light

Gazing faraway reaching to the stars twinkle silver 
shooting distant light of life orbiting inside one fantasy 

Blazing hot burning trails upon a flaming kiss
from out of this world flies to You a dream 

You lift me from darkness, it lives a star in your heart 
Come with me and see tomorrow, where happiness replaces sorrow 

Smiling weightless floating on magic dust spells cast 
the heart golden overflowing deeply sweeping sands 

A small moment of a lifetime, unaware of what it really was 
Creates art is demanding but ride the wind, catch a star 

Love flows pure washed surf inside the ocean waves crash on shore 
Tides turning emotions swell unfolding feelings wild horses at your feet 

Of music golden notes feels the dream really, but it's just fantasy 
Honesty precious way even with storms and lashing rain 

Enlightening eyes in one vision of a mind circling angelic beauty beholding love 
who openly smiles pure in amazing grace always and forever shines

Love's Moon Is Always Shining - A Collaboration

You are the song that my heart Is always singing,
To your Love's ocean my heart is always winging.
You are the cloud with the silver lining,
When I'm with you Love's moon Is always shining.

You are the dew on the morning Rose petal so sweet that pleases me,
You are like the softness of emerald fields as far as the eyes can see.
Your Love Is like the lullaby of an Angel's breath that whispers soft and true,
Always cradled gently in Love's arms so blessed when I'm with you.

In solitude together by a waterfall of dreams,
Our Love It slowly dances by Love's desiring streams.
Love's liquid fire burns In your eyes It licks my very Soul,
We walk together through Love's dream paradise It Is our goal.

Like butterfly kisses your Love plays across the fields of my heart,
On a warm summer breeze ever calling never will it part.
As night finally chases the day and finds me lying In your Loving arms,
Once again gazing tenderly Into brown eyes I show you my Southern charms.

You are the love that starts my passion's heart to sing,
Your Love's ocean sings a siren song and my heart I gladly bring.
My ancient Celtic heart with passion and desire ever striving,
To ever reach your ocean's heart when I'm with you Love's moon Is always shining.

You Are My Desire - A Collaboration

"You are my desire."

My darling like the breath of spring always In my life,
You bring my heart gladness dispelling all strife.
Like the blessed Rose your beauty ever shining bright,
You are my heart's desire my own Love-light.
One look on your divinity within my heart Love's fire,
With every single tender kiss you are my heart's desire.

My Love ever do you caress my Soul with the gentleness of Love's sweetest kiss,
The warmth of your heart's Love fills me overflowing my cup runneth over with bliss.
You came to me as the softest whisper floating on a heavenly summer breeze,
As you kissed my heart there 'neath the branches of the weeping willow trees.
Now and throughout all time In your arms Is where I will always stay,
You are my heart's desire my love, you take my breath away.

Bodies caress In nature's wonder under dream's brightest moon,
Stars shine down In glory as our bodies dance unto Love's tune.
The kiss divine your lips on mine we're lost In Love's embrace,
I am touched with Heaven's majesty when I hold your Angel grace.
Once so long ago my life was hopeless and so dire,
Now my life knows Heaven's joys for ever you are my desire.

Your lips so warm and inviting as your kiss takes me once again to Heaven's door,
Waves of love's sweetest pleasure we'll share as one now and forevermore.
Two lovers souls lay bare in sweet embrace as songs of the night fade away slow,
As soft sighs heard from ruby lips that caress the ear in heavenly afterglow.
You have shown me love in so many ways, pulled me up from life's burning fire,
You my precious love are forever my sweetest addiction my one and only desire.

Once again the privilage and honour Is mine to be able to put my simple words next to your own. May your pen ever run gold. Love always....MIKE. XXX

On a bed of roses The scent of passion deeply inhaled
Passion drives our Loving Soul Lips now meet In adorations kiss

Caressing now the child of light A body glistening with Love's dew
Stars within our eyes Precious saphires the pools of Love

Eyes shining fire at their heart The fire of Love's desire
We live our memories In dream sublime Lie now here within my arms

Together In our heart of desire Our passion thrives In night's embrace
Love Is sublime on a bed of Roses.

Burning desires from passions heat tonight.
Two eyes mirrored in loves sweet gaze.

Two bodies lay bare glistening in moonlight.
Whispered sighs softly upon your ear.

Breaths quicken 'neath fingertips tender touch.
As loving arms pull me closer.ever so warm.

Breasts rise and fall to loves gentle touch.
Oh,the ache of sweet release to finally come.

Burning desire from ruby lips as passions flames do lick.
Succulent like the peach with sweet nectar to taste.

Oh, lay with me now on downy covers and hold me close.
Enveloped in heavenly wonder on the velvet bed of roses.

Our Winter Wonderland - A Collaboration

"Our Winter Wonderland."
A Collaboration.

Snow drops falling, they pass the windows large diamonds,

Gently caressing the ground, as your hands caress my body each night.

In the soft breeze they dance, they dance, like fingers across tingling flesh,

The gentle snow falling, It fills up my heart with precious Love-light.


Virgin white feathers float downy soft outside like pillowed dreams,

Passionately kissing every hill and valley like your lips that trail so light.

Hushed whispers secretly calling on the cusp of winter's breath,

Cottony soft snow with climactic embrace share Lover's hearts tonight.


Now let us stand In Love's embrace, winter tears spreading on the ground,

Upon the porch of Love's endeavour, In gentle peace we stand.

Our heart's sing winter's harmony, as Into brown eyes we do drown,

We bathe In each others brown fire, as downy snow falls on the ground.

A Collaboration by Mary Jo Hoose and Michael P Clarke.

Growing stronger and stronger as It comes from miles away.

Your gossamer Rose caressing me my heart Is blessed,
Your Love ever gentle my heart does attest.

Blessed child of light within starlight dreams lie with me,
Within the heart Of God's starlight timeless sea.

Dreams of primal passion shall ever come to be,
The Temple of an Angel shall join as one with me.

Our Love dance silhouettes shall dance across the moon,
We dance to a white hot center when Love's glory does consume.

Now to drown In eyes of the softest brown bathing In liquid brown fire,
The song of my heart In all Its glory sings the song of our desire.

Passion ever stirred on In the heart of Heaven's domain,
After the passion dispersed Love true does remain.

Within the stars we ever find Love's own sweet bliss,
Come my Love let our heart's dance with every Loving Kiss.

I am ever yours and you are ever mine,
My sweet beloved you are my eternal Valentine.

Softly angel kisses are sent from across the miles today.
Loves sweet message is carried by songbirds across the way.

Tenderly two hearts are filled with loves words forevermore.
As passionate dreams two hearts dance through heavens door.

Butterfly kisses lay soft against ivory skin from lips warm and true.
When loving arms embrace anxiously the whole night through.

Stardust sprinkled down from heavenly skies of velvet dark tonight.
Whilst two lovers find their destined love hiding in plain sight.

Gentle caress from soft hands shown as my love for you will never part.
Fanning the flames of desires that burn molten hot within two lovers hearts.

Oh,let loves light shine through eyes mirrored, softest brown for only you.
As I gaze upon your sweet face my love I pledge eternally I do.

Fingers gently play in downy soft auburn hair where we lay.
As you pull me close your loving words in my ear softly you say.

Against the starlit night in soft glow of the moonlight loving hearts sing.
Veiled in heavens wonder two silhouettes mirror what love does bring.

Sweet destiny ever belongs to loving hearts yours and mine.
My one and only,for truly you are my eternal Valentine.

Sublime Valentine A Collaboration

"Sublime Valentine." A Collaboration.

 In the still of night the greatest beauty can my eyes see,
 An Angel lights my dark as In glory she stands before me. 

Come sit upon my lap and so close I shall hold you,
 My words of Love whispered tell of our Love so true. 

Brown eyes meet In a burning brand of soft brown fire, 
Within our temples we feel the passion's rise in desire. 

The night filled with sighs as whispered Love sings,
 We share a Lover's embrace enfolded by Angel wings. 

Love Is flowing within us and our lips do meet In bliss,
 Your lips meet mine In the sweet moment of Love's kiss.

 Gently I lift you In my arms I hold a living dream,
 I carry you to the bed where we shall share a night's scene.

 My darling I am ever yours and I know you are ever mine,
 In the living darkness of our night you are my eternal Valentine.

 Whispered breaths of love from two lovers hearts do sigh. 
Ever so softly like the angels that sing a sweet lullaby.

 Warm arms that wrap me like satin ribbons of red. 
As gently you lay me on downy covered bed.

 Soft brown eyes searching your temple of desire. 
Bodies entwine as one as passions touch create a fire.

 A single red rose you trail softly over ivory skin so light. 
Like butterfly kisses that tease and delight.

 Loves sweet scent floats heavily in the air as it lingers.
 As two lovers search out treasures with gentle fingers.

 Through the misty veils of warmest night dreams are found.
 With bated breath I wait to hear heavens rapturous sound.

 In the velvet shadows of night in heavenly dreams sublime. 
You are my love my sweet Valentine til' the ends of time. 

A Collaboration by Mary Jo Hoose & Michael P Clarke.

*Thank you so much for letting me join you in another romantic collab Mike darlin'...always as pleasure for me! Love always xxx*

Embracing Eternally

I dreamt that you were there,
In a haze, I could see your familiar face
The sun providing a spotlight for our awe-drenched moment

As I drew near,
Your features became more and more clear
You were smiling from ear to ear,
Like an angel fragrant and bright,
My soul beamed like an on-switched light
And we were so close to bonding edges
So close to each other’s face

I was captive in your touch
And yet I felt fully free
I saw your alighted lips 
Curved, smooth and pining
As if they had waited for the moment I would find them
And how they trembled with joy and longing
As they took their inevitable, suspenseful plunge

Two lips leaped and landed like panthers on the prowl,
Magnetic, crazed and ruthless
Made for this moment
I cannot fathom the strength I received,
Kissing those celestial lips…
He was drinking in all of my sorrows
In the sacred force of our impact

I felt his struggles he bore,
Ball and chain-
Though I did not feel burden or pain
I felt his purpose in his moist embrace
The cuddle of dew and rosebud,
The glow of this thumping heart
I felt him release the reigns of life’s blisters
For the conjoining of our truth
In the kiss of wholesome bliss, 
He wrapped his arms around me,
Tremulous and tight
Caressing  and knowing every spot needing light

Eternal moments passing in our sweet blend,
Tenderly, his voice, 
With comfort and assurance,
Knighted by cream-lit clouds 
His voice, a deep bell scooping water from a wishing well 
Pertinently held my ear in trance:
“This is the part where we never let go…”

. . .

When I woke from the dream, 
I realized we were embracing always,
Since the day of our union
My eyes became wise,
And I knew that I never let go of him
Not once, not ever...
An unusual pair, yes, 
Like vines to a gargoyle 
Though eternal too

For the gargoyle’s eyes never blink
For fear of missing the most
Her cold-stoned exterior senses the vine’s bold hold
Feeling and bearing his thorns forever…
Clad in the ornaments of each other 
Warmed and invigorated by the sun

I dreamed a dream of You

Yesterday I dreamed a dream,
that had no end.
You in your white gown, and long, black hair flowing.
You were calling my name.
I heard you, but I couldn't reach you!

And when I say your soul was tainted.
You went out in the night life.
You dressed in your black, evening ball gown.
You danced till the Red Sun came out, over the horizon.

You smiled at me.
A flame in my heart burned red hot!
My knees and hands shook with nerves;
Nerves of love and joy.
I blew you a kiss,
but you turned away!
Oh, please don't turn away from me,
for I would die, if it happened again!

Your beautiful and golden heart showed me the truth.
The truth that every gentleman wants to hear.
I've seen you walk the streets,
in the blue dawn of August.
As I followed you, you stopped and looked at me.
You smiled so beautifully, and my heart fluttered into oblivion!

You walked with your friends and I went my way.
I couldn't find a single trace of you that day.
I cried out "Why did I leave her like this?!"
I looked for you, all over the courtyards and town squares!
Yet no sight of your beauty.
... No sight of your golden heart, that I hold so dear to mine.
Where did you go?
Why did you leave?
Why did I leave... that is the question!

I should have stayed by your side,
till the ends of time.

Yet I had left.

One gloomy and parish midnight.
I came along a road,
and soon found myself in front of a wayward cafe.
Smiling faces all around me.
I spotted a beautiful face that outstood all the other faces around me.
It was yours.

Your face brought me to sanity and I went over too you!
You spotted me and tried to run!
I caught you in the dirty hallway and pulled you in.

Our eyes met and I fell in love once again.
Sanity re-entered my mind, body and soul.
I kissed you and you kissed back.
You held my hand, and we left the cafe and walked down the street.

The street was gloomy, yet we together brightened the dark street.
We went back to the lit up city streets, of the lands filled with smiling faces,
and we fell in love and slept together.

You lay there in my restless arms and I gave you a sweet kiss,
upon your sweet and soft head.
Your dark hair was sweet smelling and felt of silk.
I closed my eyes and fell asleep with you,
there in my arms and we dreamed together
till the morning came and woke me up,
and took you away from my weak and weary arms.

I dreamed a dream of you.

In Your Dreams

Was it all a sweet dream or just reality?,
  I sit and ponder that very thought,
During the daylight and in the nighttime,
  Wondering, were we ever there or not?

A crescent moon smiled down on me,
  Shedding it's white light upon the ground,
I sat amongst the petals, waiting patiently,
  And it was there, that me, you found.

Lavender flower petals I did pluck,
  As I was seated atop the green hillside,
Does he love me, or does he not?,
  My love for you, I could not hide.

I only saw you as a dark silhouette,
  A shadow that walked upon the ground,
Among silver stars and a midnight sky,
  Your gentle voice was the only sound.

My darkened silhouette was no longer alone,
  While yellow fireflies around me dance,
When you came to join me atop that hill,
  In the meadow's softly illuminated romance.

I was embraced within your arms,
  As your most tender kiss met mine,
On that one warm summer's night,
  When our kindred spirits did entwine.

So sad was I when the time came to part,
  As the rising sun shined golden upon my hair,
Although, what a beautiful dream it was,
  When I awoke and found you there.

Together As One

Together As One
To dream as one.
When we dream we dream as one. When we laugh we laugh as one. We have a life 
together that compliments one another. We have a love that is like no other it’s as 
one. We reach for the stars and look for the moon. We support and care for one 
another on our journeys as our journeys cross paths.
We listen with excitement to each other’s dreams. To understand and encourage 
comes from the heart. Knowing with certainty that we deserve the love we give and 
receive as we are as one. What is wonderful for one is so for the other for our life 
path is the same. Knowing one so well is to know one’s self without a doubt.
Dreams that come together both big and small shared by knowing hearts that want 
the same want are as one. A love so strong can feel and guide with the stars and 
moon. Set in motion a force together nothing can sever but blessed be a dream 
together as one!
Dream, laugh, and love we do as one for we became one. Together we reach for the 
stars and the moon as we share the paths we take. Our journey takes us many 
directions to which we share our delight. A journey worth taking is a journey worth 
sharing…sharing as one!
                                                                                   Debbie Knapp

Lady Of My Life

Her heartbeat echoes like a love moan in my mind,
summoning centuries of refined romanticism soulfully enshrined,
the contralto of her voice a fillatio upon the cock of my consciousness,
through her eyes I see that mystery is the Mistress of meaning beyond regress,
my manly mouth serenades & suckles the rosy pussy of her prophecy, homage cunnilingus,
revelations irresistible in their heretical invigorations excite our imaginations
as we fornicate a ferocious forsooth soothsaying love's reincarnations,
a vignette of virility forthcoming from fate's far side fortifications
presents a primal promise in paranormal inceptions,

Premonitions primitive in heart heat paint
streak the skin of our desire to design an indigenous heaven,
flesh tones warm fast and feral revealing a vitality of spirituality that tongues detonate,
the Univetse blooms into a Multiverse as she spreads her spell of star spice scintillation
onto my ripened body rendering her rites fertile in rich freight, 
within the brain's wildfire I feel her unction,

Becoming the shaman of our secret skin ceremony
I invoke the spirit of solar youth into veinage voracious for passion's patronage,
sanctifying the unifying lust between the bodily and ghostly unlicensed liberty,
shadow temple of temptation gives offering of blood and song from astral page,
death dream extremes fire hot ejaculation of divine vindication into cosmogony
as she and I have won our now with a win over age,

My Love Muse is more than a woman
she is a savage seduction and a sacred sweetness,
a Goddess of her own Cause...a lover known as Poetess,
her name changes from lifetime to lifetime, yet she is always beauty shown -

Peaceful Lovers Dream

Lie next to me, and you will see,
As we read each other’s mind…
When your heart beats, mine repeats
and both benefit in kind.
Time stands still, or so it seems,
in our hammock strung
between two dreams.
Side by side, we hear the tide,
and not a word is spoken.
Love came in through a door
we didn’t know was open…

A Kiss

As you and I swim the same ocean 
I swim the vastness of it in search of you
There are no boundaries to what we can do 
If I love you and you love me

The hidden shores are awaiting us  
let us go then to paradise 

You bring me in like a love struck  dove 
sitting on her perch 

You have put a light in my heart that I 
never thought was possible 

Your love unwinds me like a ball of yarn
as we lay together as one soul

The love I have inside is just for you alone 
as I feel the softness of your words 

Your warmth fills my aching soul
I dream of your lips on mine 

I had a dream that we shared a kiss once 
It was a kiss that lasted forever

Cornflower Blue

(a conversational collaboration with Christine Ueri)

"remember the dream I had when we were 10?
(waves and waves of cornflowers everywhere)
about the boy and the closet?
(sunflowers, circle, glass house?....closet, yes)
cornflower blue
(the closet was cornflower blue?)
the light in that dream was cornflower blue
(the air, the atmospheric light?)
yes, especially in the closet

I had that dream for so long
I'll never forget
little boy blue and the kingfishers --
the blue and white china plates
with the bridge and the lovers; the two doves in the willow tree,
that made me look for japanese
the funny things we do as children

(you are writing a poem....)
catch the words, my love
(you already wrote a poem up there; bridge it together --
I dried cornflowers with dandelions in a blue and white book; but it wasn't a dream.
Well, in a way it was, because at the time, I was floating in the clouds)

he wore a blue and white striped top in my dream

and I remember him
when I look at the sky,
the clouds and the golden sun --

I caught the words!
(yes! did you string them all together?)

not yet!"

Second Hand Man

She packed her bags one day
Left me in the dark
Running away, what a lark
I stare at the walls; life seems so bleak and stark

I wrote her love letters
Only a thousand or two
The poor old postman
Carrying them all back to my door

Return to sender was the obvious score
So I took my pen and wrote a few more
Before dousing my desires
In the illusions of folklore

Where out of the forest
On a mist filled dawn
Returned my princess
Singing our song

Alas I walk along lonely forest paths
I dream and ponder of what might have been
I look up to the heavens and demand, what was my sin?
That I am alone, surrounded in deathly silence

A second hand man


For a second hand rose

There's a love that touches heaven
it's way beyond the blue
It travels across the ocean
it brings my soul to you
From these sandy beaches
a fiery passion within my heart
And when true love gets to you
it's going to touch every part

Oh, this is the great adventure
there's no quenching this flame
I'm bursting with excitement
at just the mention of your name
So I'm taking a dreamer's journey
going to sail across this sea
Nothing here gonna hold me back
Beyond the blue, just you and me

There's a love that's so compelling
it's beautiful and bold
It's far beyond the horizon
it's end is still untold
Allows me see your sparking eyes
smell the fragrance in your hair
When you're still a million miles
Girl, that's a love with no compare

Oh, this is the great adventure
there's no quenching this flame
I'm bursting with excitement
at just the mention of your name
So I'm taking a dreamer's journey
going to sail across this sea
Nothing here gonna hold me back
Beyond the blue, just you and me

All the colored ribbons of the Maypole
Like a rainbow dancing in the wind
Every lover's dream.. so many ladies
Hope to find you here and let love begin
And all these folk songs tell a story
Witnessed by stars in the night sky
Girl, every year I've looked for you
But this is the year, I won't be denied!

A fiery passion burns within me
To find my one true soulmate 
In crowds of noise I hear silence
You alone are worth the wait
Nature whispers you are near me
It seems I can feel you in the air
Dancers move as if to greet you
Then I look up and you are there

The prettiest girl in all of Europe
Across the land and surrounding seas
I reach out my hand to touch an angel
As you take my hand you set me free
Every heart beat skips in measure 
Earth and Heaven are suddenly one
All the hope of this year's Maypole
Fulfilled in you.. look what love's done!

Goodmorning Kiss

A little something darling treasure
faraway vision of one soul goodnight  budding dream
sweet talking buttercups dance deeply to one song 

Rose kissing petal lips whisper tenderly music 
I pray silently your sleeping gracefully with magic
surrounded by angels full of love
Warmly embraced with gentle wings bouncing echoes 
 inside each touch of a feather melting gold liquid cream
honey coated tender whispers fluttering on a soft breeze

Floating colors of sunshine misted jewels blushing rubies 
under a rainbow arriving bouquets awakening happiness
beams sparkling gifted inside the softest tenderness

Smiling morn sparkling rays in your heart  
glowing always with joy and happiness for keeps 
wishing for you true forever, most beautiful daydreams a promise

A Dream Cloud

I joined the mile high club
Love as one began dreaming magic beautiful sunflower rays
dancing feelings  within clouds gleaming 

Blossoming flowers within your star lighting crystals 
frosted dewdrops sparkle inside treasuring soul thoughts 
embracing warm smiles in dazzling sunshine beams

Baby you always take the lead 
as the winds haunting moans crying through the trees
howling one spirit of a lone wolf born under the cold moon

Sure as the clouds gather together capping
heavily darken with rainfall running down the mountain
one silver stream chain towards the great Atlantic 

Most purest star of blinding light 
sitting high among'st the angels 
stunning heartstrings when warmly plucked 

Strummed touching echoes warm vision of a goddess 
kissing dark jewels flickering lights up across many oceans 
always waves land on golden sands footprints our forever

Stroking hair gently halo radiating chords deeply dance 
looking into jewels of a treasure gem shines

Over and over in the heart skips 
beams jumping over the moon silver whispers 
silently makes love to you in every single thought 
hot sexy kissing every inch nibbling

Crashing on the shore

Oh how I enjoyed the Ocean's soft mist.
When the dark waves came crashing to the shore!
That powerful moment when we first kissed.
My heart opened up and I wanted more.
I felt the stirring of love on that shore.

Like the Ocean I was drawn to you.
A lovely Siren's song you sung to me.
Our moments together they seemed so few
Were you afraid I wouldn't set you free?
I had hoped you would be happy with me.

So now I dive into the Oceans waves.
Not wanting to hear any other sound.
Remembering how we explored those caves.
That place where I thought true love had been found.
Hear waves crashing, that's my heart's breaking sound!

A Lovers World And Dreamers Dream

Hope lives on a four leaf clover.
Greener pastures when yesterday's over.
My heart spins when her hair gets twirled.
And I start to shake in this lovers world.

I walked around the corner and stayed awhile.
That's where I was when I seen her smile.
I felt more in that moment than in my whole life.
Straight to my heart just like a knife.

I've made that turn a time or two.
But theres no turning round now that it's you.
The sun came up on the other side.
Took away any shadow where I can hide.

Destiny delivered a dream for two.
Everything has suddenly become pink and blue.
I can't help but wait for the bubble to pop.
Borrowed trouble in this dream balloon shop.

Hope lives on a four leaf clover. 
Greener pastures when yesterday's over.
My heart spins when her hair gets twirled.
And I start to shake in this lovers world.

Deeply Hurt Love

Feet not up yet dreaming looking into the deep distant horizon screams
need to take turf in remembering howls across oceans mourning dream special wish

You would want a good fire tonight for sure ice stormy fierce cold cutting
out walking giant waves hitting of the shore thundering pounds lashing clash 

Today the wind fairly woke me up piercing wide eye opening vision
Then when I got home just felt ten years younger alive again one storm

Now that's a good omen laughing to myself carries one to the high Heavens
Must be the salted spray love mixed with sea mist smashes you to the ground love

New therapy go out to the sea front as gales howling with angry force break news
blowing giant waves crashing heavy of cliffs thundering roars echoes inside sad 

Wind spitting sea salt sand peppering the face in your hardened heart
hate remains your driving engine unforgiving hung up on the past

Confetti crystals falling sprinkles gently laying a carpet upon the ground 

Whom embraces the outer body sweetly enchants I open four chambers 
holding all keys out applauding flutters skipping echo pops each beat

My queen warmly holds hands with the soul grace of a thousand swans in flight
Once bitten twice shy one kiss from you smitten I would say smiling overjoyed 

I will always smile in loves amazing grace in soft gentle tenderness the joy it brings
Wishing that one was holding you right now footsteps in deep sand begins touching

A Dream

A Dream
I patiently waited for you all the day long, my beloved. Even the tired, orange, afternoon sun long ago drifted off to sleep. Nighttime arrived in a hurry shoving away the short-lived evening, With rhinestone stars dotting a shimmering, dark, velvet sky, And a pale, silver moon shyly venturing on the horizon.
After the lamps were all lit, I struggled to stay awake, But my heavy eyelids drooped as I was weary from the long day. So forgive me, my lord, as I unwittingly succumbed To the potent spell of the Sandman’s magical dust; And sly Morpheus sneakily captured me in his soothing embrace.
Come share with me this dream of tranquil enchantment, In a watercolor field of delicately perfumed lavender and clover. And I in peaceful repose await your arrival, my lord, To gently awaken me with tender kisses, sweet as nectar. I look for you, my dearest love, in a dream!

I know what I've been looking for
I'd never seen your like before
Your sweet smile is like a song
The wait for you is worth the long

Oh yeah, oh yeah
Worth the long

There's not another girl like you
It's all sunshine and skies of blue
You're the hope I've never known
Dream come true that's all my own

I prayed so long then you came
I pinch myself this is crazy insane
The luckiest man I've ever known
Dream come true that's all my own

I know what I've been looking for
I'd never seen your like before
Your sweet smile is like a song
The wait for you is worth the long

Oh yeah, oh yeah

Beholding Beauty

Amazing snowflake unique pure in deep beauty 
melting within deep warmness always trusting fate

Adoring one pulse in a million skips climbing steps
forever beats true blue crystal clear begging your kiss

Night within deep chambers embers glow 
a keystone turns lights on in satin darkness

The sun smiles warm thoughts coloring frosted jewels 
gentle beams touch softly as winter ice kisses vision rainbows

Closing shutters until tomorrow comes 
as the wind whistles and howls outside reality

Awakening sweetheart delights opening flowers bloom
blossoming within nine shades of beauty dazzling rose gold

Silver lining treasure cloud kissing pearl gem precious white
sailing dreams floating magical into another space
kisses blown silently blushing on velvet lips of a breath
sweetly carried on a stream of air whispering cotton candy

Touching ribbons flutter in your every single breathing sigh

falling one cloud

Like a great waterfall 
in a faraway distance

Inside the vision silver fingers 
pointing out spears slowly

Embracing one pure gift
relic treasure memory of love
Warm sweet glowing jewel in deep beauty
Happiness inside shining diamond  
joy beaming your sunshine baby a star 
lighting one gem brightly dazzles a pearl

Light or Dark, We Choose To See

Light or Dark, We Choose To See

We that cry for so very much more
 always fear opening of death's door
Images of sickle and bony face
 death's image we can not erase

Steps taken into a cavern dark
 a journey we fear to embark
Eyes shut, the light then flees
prayers given on bended knees

Shall we ,

Dance to the music of misty dawns
 celebrate the beauty of newborn fawns
Join in Nature's majestic treasure
 stroll the woods and never measure
The beauty of that calming sound
 from the depths of Nature's holy ground


Simply remember to sincerely praise
 the joy Life and Nature will forever raise
Songs in our hearts that so richly give
 paradise glimpses while we yet live.

Without Love

It would cloud the sun forever
in one instant the sea would dry
shift the axis of the earth
as a weak crystal
all of this would happen!
resulting in death
cover me with its funereal crepe
but you could never shut me
from the flame of your love...

Last night I dreamed
we were standing in cold grey weather
under the proudest stars
no escape from the ocean breeze
we looked beyond
as the pale moon put on a white cloth...

Upon a Bed of Petals

Last night I had a dream, unlike the rest
then begged of Sandman, this one request,
"Please take me there again tonight
and let me feel the sweet delight,
 again, before it fades away,
...take me to where the petals lay"

   We ran through meadows, days were long
   I picked bouquets, and we were young
   We were tan and lean and faces fair
   my flowing dress and windswept hair
   your eyes were dark with passion's call
   you pulled me to the grass so tall
   the earth was fresh, with petals spread
   no words between us needing said
   the sun was shining, skies were blue
   our desperate love was brindled new

Last night I had a dream, unlike the rest,
then begged of Sandman, this one request,
"Please take me there again tonight,
and let me feel the sweet delight,
 again, before it fades away,
...take me to where the petals lay"

To touch a dream

Dreams come in many forms
Some are cold and others warm

Some play like a movie in black and white
And some are no less than a guiding light

Some are visions of times to come
Some just simply leave us numb

Some we remember and some we forget
Some we cherish and some we regret

Some we just can't help but treasure
Some give us embarrassing pleasure

I close my eyes and dream of you
All the things I've put you through

See I had a dream that went sour
An awful dream of money and power

Then I learned one cold hard day
Some dreams take years to pay

Sometimes reality is clearly seen
Another will soon touch my dream

As these tears run down my face
Some dreams are just to good to waste

I can only imagine the pain in you
Trying hard to be faithful and true

Sweetheart some dreams are to hard to play
As I slowly start to fade away

A single year has came and went
I have seven more at eighty-five percent

Sometimes reality is sad as can be
Sweetheart I want you to let go of me

I learned love is worth more than gold
You deserve somebody to hold

This type relationship is totally insane
I want you to free yourself of my pain

If our love is truly meant to be
My dream will bring you back to me

Strength of character  is hard to find
As I treasure yours please treasure mine

I believe our love can break the mold
Be a timeless romantic story told

About two lovers who broke apart
In order to save each others hearts

And let their love be a miracle seen
By having faith to touch a dream

~ in my dream he watches and I feel his desire his need and I fear it, yet something lures me I sense him in my dark room and feel confusion it overwhelms me, I can hear his breathing close he whispers my name, it comes violently like thunder looking into his fathomless eyes I see love and hate then his lips are crushing mine, it is obsession he is evil, he is love, he is desire, he is cruelty go away, come back, I love you, I hate you he wraps his arms around me, oh the memory then the dream fades and I am left crying why does he haunt me but only the rain answers ~ Free Verse November 14, 2011

Haunted love

Pictures of you haunt my mind
Memories of my one and only love 
Must you haunt me in my dreams 
Nightmares come they never go

The sun has the moon
The stars the sky
My love for you won't die

The bird has it's nest
The mole the burrow 
My love has no home

The flowers need water
The grass the morning dew
And my love needs you

Pictures of you haunt my mind
Memories of my one and only love 
Must you haunt me in my dreams 
Nightmares come they never go

Wait a minute, in my dream last night
I met the guy who fit just right
Vivid memory coming through
Of me finally meeting you

Golden purple dreamy haze
Moments caught inside your gaze
Touches, kisses, magic, whole
In this dream filled time we stole 

Laughing, grinning, soft caresses
Holding hearts and healing stresses
Exploring childlike what we bring
Playful Fingers wandering 

I've held your hand inside my mind
Now it's warmth is real this time
I've seen your face and your eyes staring 
And now I feel their gentle caring

Your taste your touch your look and smell 
Tantalizing treat, all is well 
Electric senses, heart pounds like thunder 
Kiss your body with gentle wonder

Legs and arms like tree roots twisted
Sweet sensations, bodies misted
Grinning wide with tickled feet
Outrageously perfect and complete

Our Snow Cabin - A Collaboration

Cozy by the warm glow of the fireplace In our cabin 'neath the pine so tall,
My darlin' Love and i watch downy snowflakes through frosty windowpane fall.
In the velvet darkness of night the silence deafening In the winter wonderland so white,
As Ice crystals softly glisten and sparkle like tiny diamonds blanketing the ground tonight.

Holding close together before the firelight's warm casting glow,
Our silouettes flicker on the wall while outside gently falls virgin snow.
The warmest glow within our hearts we kiss Love's sweetest wine,
Together before our cozy fire on this winter's night divine.

Imaginary Girl In An Imaginary World

I am a shadow.
A muse in the darkened corner of your mind.
Breathe in and a shiver you might find.
I am illusion with a sensitive sheen
Silver of the clouds ultra thin lining.
I am a mirage.
In a desert you drink from my fountain
thirst quenching, walking without a plan.
Endless like the sun stained golden sand.
Transparent with wings take my hand.
I am an angel.
When your road feels endless I light
I am the stars in the forgotten night.
Imaginary girl in an imaginary world is I
Sent to kiss your unhappiness goodbye
I am your lover
written in ink and brought to exist
Kisses on your skin in tear soaked mist.
I am the tingle right now that you feel
I am here in your heart, I am real.
You know I am real.

You freed me like a genie out of a jar
I never thought it could go this far
But you are my Aladdin
Who came to rescue me all of a sudden

I was in the dark, you came and….
Took me out to the light
I was a lost child but you wiped my tears….
And vanished away my fright

I owe you so much; I’m in your debt
I could never repay you, whatever on saying I kept
You showed me the way, you are my guiding star 
But please promise that you’ll not….
Put me back into that jar!

You are my princess, you are my jasmine 
You in my heart always have been  
Promise that you will forever stay
Promise that you will never go away

Promise that you will hold me tight…..
On a cold night
Promise that you will never let me….
Get out of your sight
Promise that you will never let go of my hand
Nor leave me in the dark alone, where I used to stand

By Dawn's Early light - A Collaboration

Dawn's early light breaks In the Heavens and soft whispers fall upon my ear,
Whilst the gentle caress of my love's hands pull me oh so near.

Body caresses body in passions dance within love supreme,
Love's desires ever flowing In this Love's early dawn scene.

Fingertips that glide over silken skin scented of musk softly to please,
Warm breasts that rise and fall from Love's lips that do surely tease.

Through kiss divine Love's river flows Into Love's ocean rare,
The Soul alight with love supreme Love's light beyond compare.

Soft sighs sing out as two lover's sillouettes dance to Love's song they play,
When dawns early light breaks In the Heavens and two bodies begin to sway.

By the dawn's early light Lover's embrace before rising sun they enthrall,
Passion and desire they always rise when dawn's Love comes to call.

Our Winter Wonderland

 "Our Winter Wonderland." A Collaboration. 

Snow drops falling, they pass the windows large diamonds, Gently caressing the ground, as your hands caress my body each night.

 In the soft breeze they dance, they dance, like fingers across tingling flesh, The gentle snow falling, It fills up my heart with precious Love-light. 

Virgin white feathers float downy soft outside like pillowed dreams, Passionately kissing every hill and valley like your lips that trail so light.

 Hushed whispers secretly calling on the cusp of winter's breath, Cottony soft snow with climactic embrace share Lover's hearts tonight. 

Now let us stand In Love's embrace, winter tears spreading on the ground, Upon the porch of Love's endeavour, In gentle peace we stand. 

Our heart's sing winter's harmony, as Into brown eyes we do drown, We bathe In each others brown fire, as downy snow falls on the ground.

Your Love flows Its way to me every single day,
Growing stronger and stronger as It comes from miles away.

Your gossamer Rose caressing me my heart Is blessed,

Fingers gently play in downy soft auburn hair where we lay.
As you pull me close your loving words in my ear softly you say.

Dreams Downy Touch

Her pillow heard the sighs 
as her dream elevated her high... 
above the grays into the blue 
where billowing thoughts of you reside

Tangled in sheets of what had been
wrapping her tightly in thoughts of when
a gray rainy day meant sleeping in
caressing in moments that lovers spin

While the pillows crease of dreams delight
scores the face of her missing plight
Each downy feathered touch reminder
makes her world a little bit kinder

A Golden Steed Gallops

A Golden Steed Gallops

A golden steed gallops in my dreams as of late
 echoing sounds of my so darkly imagined fate
 chastising my wicked deeds of an ill-spent youth
 increasing the chasm between bold lies and truth

Flowing trails of gleaming pain fly deep with that race
 as precious , sweet memories burn up without a trace
 flying away , names and faces of girls I so easily left
broken up like fine crystals falling from a high shelf

An invisible rider brings racing steed to an abrupt halt
 as it screams out, yes , you, it's all your damn fault!
 why did you not live a sweeter, kinder and gentler life
 blame is on you for lost true love , loss of your first wife!

Golden steed stands at a graveyard filled with no headstones 
 lying about are several sun-bleached and broken white bones
 dark wind races in whispering in a very raspy low moan
 you are so dead , now you lay cold, dark and so, so alone!

Robert Lindley  06-13-2014

Based upon a poem I wrote in the early 80's. 
That poem was  written about a dream I had 
three times in three consecutive years, each 
time was on my first (ex) wife's birthday, we had 
been divorced for 7 years..

In the still of night the greatest beauty can my eyes see,
An Angel lights my dark as In glory she stands before me.

Come sit upon my lap and so close I shall hold you,
My words of Love whispered tell of our Love so true.

Brown eyes meet In a burning brand of soft brown fire,
Within our temples we feel the passion's rise in desire.

The night filled with sighs as whispered Love sings,
We share a Lover's embrace enfolded by Angel wings.

Love Is flowing within us and our lips do meet In bliss,
Your lips meet mine In the sweet moment of Love's kiss.

Gently I lift you In my arms I hold a living dream,
I carry you to the bed where we shall share a night's scene.

My darling I am ever yours and I know you are ever mine,
In the living darkness of our night you are my eternal Valentine.

Whispered breaths of love from two lovers hearts do sigh.
Ever so softly like the angels that sing a sweet lullaby.

Warm arms that wrap me like satin ribbons of red.
As gently you lay me on downy covered bed.

Soft brown eyes searching your temple of desire.
Bodies entwine as one as passions touch create a fire.

A single red rose you trail softly over ivory skin so light.
Like butterfly kisses that tease and delight.

Loves sweet scent floats heavily in the air as it lingers. 
As two lovers search out treasures with gentle fingers.

Through the misty veils of warmest night dreams are found.
With bated breath I wait to hear heavens rapturous sound.

In the velvet shadows of night in heavenly dreams sublime.
You are my love my sweet Valentine til' the ends of time.

“Soul to Soul,”

Love so gently blowing in the ethereal breeze,
Kisses so gentle that with adoration tease.

Soft brown eyes that melt me with Love’s desire,
I forever bathe within their soft brown fire.

I lie within Heaven when you lie next to me,
Bodies touch within Love’s timeless sea.

Love does light my Soul with a Love so bright,
Soul to Soul brings the most beautiful light.

His gentle touch teases and taunts over silken skin with love.
Whilst softly I sigh from honeyed lips gentle as the coo of a dove.

My brown eyes they beg for sweet release to come all the more.
For my lover to open heavens gate as we knock on heavens door.

Come lie with me my sweet darlin' in fields of emerald green today.
Amongst pretty wildflowers where the weeping willow trees sway.

Hold me close in your loving arms ever so true with all your might.
Soul to soul my sweet love until the evening chases the days light.

There we lie come the moon of early evenings song,
I lie in the arms of my beloved where i truly belong.

You smile as our passion's rise deep within,
The glory of our heart's song shall soon begin.

Auburn hair i do brush from your beautiful face,
As my lips do caress your sweet bodies grace.

Our lips do meet and Love's divinity is our goal,
In this night of nights my beloved we are Soul to Soul.

Softly ivory breasts rise and fall as sweet passions abound tonight.
When my lovers gentle touch is heavenly over soft mounds of delight.

Tenderly love envelops two bodies as they lay bare glistening wild and free.
Under starry heavens they hold in sweet embrace 'neath the weeping willow tree.

Soft and gentle is the moment as their eyes meet when locked in loving embrace.
His hand ever so gently so lovingly caresses her silken ivory face.

My gift of love I give to you as you give to me.
Soul to soul our hearts now and forever will be.

lets share a dream

i have a dream 
of a future i will hold dear 
a place where i can live 
and have no fear

will you stand between me and my dream
hold me in my path
make my take it slow 
but i hope i get there fast 

i suppose independance is a scary thing 
many desire but then regret
but i had a dream 
one i will never forget

will you come with me 
share my desire 
me and you have a spark 
lets start the fire

Do You Love Me

All I think
I want
I dream love
All I do
to get love
to be loved
fall in love
with you again
I never expect anything
but love
I am not asking more
but love
Do you love me
I still do not know
You care for me
You think about me
but sometimes 
You are so different
as if you are stranger
Do I know you
I do not
Love is weird sometimes
I am not sure
If you love me 
or I love you
or we both do

There is a place

There is a place you can go that is full of only love and Warmth .
you will be surrounded by a light that shines from the Heavens ,
Sprinkles of Silver and Gold. 

This place is filled with brilliant colors of Purple , vibrant Gold, all colors.
not one Color is less significant then another ,
for every color is equal here .

This place is surrounded by the beauty of different Flowers.
All flowers have significance here . No one Flower is better then another .
All Flowers are equal here .

It is important you know , you can cry here , and should cry as often as needed .
For  the tears will cleanse your Soul and give the Flowers water to grow.
No  one Tear is insignificant here , every tear has value and not one is better then another .

 money holds no value ,  Where you live , what you own,  has no significance here .

You will be surrounded by a beautiful light that shines from the Heavens .
A shining warm light will encircle you and allow nothing to hurt you . 
Hate will be shed at the door light a old jacket of no use. 

There is a place of beauty and  Worth.
This place will not be found on Earth .
It is a place where no one person is better then another .

A poem for YOU

In this world of Uncertainties I’m the man that you can trust And in my words of sincerity That my love would never last. And if you could only feel, what i feel for you You can ask me “why?” so you can see the truth Like our love that tightens the rope, Like a light that would give us hope. As you watch the dark skies Let me grab the moon for you, And as I catch the bright stars That’s the way you can see me through As this planet turns as it always will And things go wrong and you don’t know what to feel Hold my hand for it will make us strong Like a wind, we will carry on The wind blow that sings a hymn for you For they know what does love means for the two Love is blind, and not deaf So how’s success if you’re not ready to bet? In this poem with full of rhymes, A full of love, Babe can you be mine? I don’t expect too much from you Why should I? If you complete my whole. “Till death do us part” that’s what they have said But why do struggles crash them ahead? Don’t ask me when my love will last, To count all of our quarrels, is that a must? Now and Forever is all that I promise No day dreaming and without reminiscence As the matter of time, as the time passes by Together we stand, together you and I

At Least

Our hearts were a veritable slow dance

And I didn’t have to put my baby
In the corner

Our retinas
became diamond forged binds
In serenity’s lock

Your tear ducts within our wishing wells


Our flesh
Bringing lukewarm elasticity
To gentle boil

Every graceful thrust
Mimicking fireplace embers
Under cabin’s winter moon

Until my deep sigh
Embedded paragraphs
Within “Dear John” parchment


At least

Trinity’s hourglass
Permitted me to sing I love you choruses

Before your hearts’ phone line

Yesterday was another day,
I dream of you under the rain.
All I know is that my love is true and everything else is fake.
Take my hand and venture into a distant land.
No more doctors or medications,
I’m the cure to your heart!
Don’t let me go because I don’t know how to live without you.
Is love obsessive? Is it cruel or am I the one who needs to change?
Do I need to find a different route to your blossoming heart?
Listen with your heart not with your ears.
Can you hear my heartbeat from here?
Look with your heart not with your eyes.
Do you see the infinite blue sea called love?

*** TODAY ***
By; the Poet Destroyer

Love is so discrete and open wide. 
Why must one make another cry?
Yes your love was true.
But, at times we must say good bye.
Like the color gold that does not fade, 
your heart I will always treasure and hold.
But, time stood still over our desert land.
Now I have to move on in hopes you'll understand.
I will always reminisce the romantic way you held my hand.
I'll miss the way you embraced your love for me. 
Things just got sad after that one little fight.
A day wont go by that I wont dream of you at night.
Hopefully my river flows back into the open waves of your sea.
But, for now I ask you to set my heart free.

~~~~It was an honor to work with our 14 year old poet John M.~~~~

I stand close with a fistful of flowers
My tiny bouquet made of dandelion dreams

A Better World For All

                   Behind the seven great mountains with sugar tops on
              There lies the valley where there is only love and happiness
                      There are not many who know these mountains
                       and rather few people know about this valley
                     The birds are singing so beautiful all year round
                  The flowers make themselves attractive to all the bees
                        People live in a wonderful harmony with love
                      No unfriendliness, no jealousy, no hard feelings
            This valley is like a little mini paradise, where everyone is happy
                      In happiness and love grow only the best of the best
                I've been searching for this valley all my life without finding it
               If we all were looking together maybe we will find a better world

I look for your magic in the moonlight
Listening for the secrets you will tell
I wish for you to be my dream tonight

I do not know if it is wrong or right
You leave me powerless under your spell
I look for your magic in the moonlight

Take control of me I do not wish to fight
You even mesmorize me with your smell 
I wish for you to be my dream tonight

I wish to fly on your string like a kite
Tethered to you I am secure and well
I look for your magic in the moonlight

So I travel with you into the night
Nothing compares to the stories you tell
I wish for you to be my dream tonight

You my lover with your eyes shining bright
You lifted me up whenever I fell
I look for your magic in the moonlight
I wish for you to be my dream tonight

My Dreams

I want to dream
Like flying across the sky
Finding out greater heights
Seeing others view of reality
And be one with the sky.

I want to dream 
Swimming underneath the ocean
Searching water creatures
Fishes, clamps, and corals
Discern what their importance’s are
In our existence and health.

I want to dream
Walking underneath the ground
Exploring things that make us
Wealthy and abundant
Seeing the sources of gold, diamond
And any mineral alike.

I want to dream all my life
To enjoy everything
With my dream Self
As I always know
It’s another form of my reality.

Revitalized Love in the Fall of Winter

In the midst of vacant hours, echoes of expressions on opposite ends
are something of the same. Ruminating on questions; questions about
thy and questions about thou intertwined
with the then and the now. Thoughts
prelude to other thoughts of 
thoughts emerging to 
many thoughts.
Consulting and
the death
and birth
of us; is thy
to shed the 
events upon the
ground transformed
from a dream out of a
dream to this dream only of us?
A coherent argument it is, that the
memories back on yesterday brought us 
here today...But, when thy and thou bodies
meet and descend upon each accreting to the singular; occupancy
quickly overcomes vacancy leading the thoughts of many thoughts effaced.
(Sigh)...Thy and Thou love bolsters all the more today than back on yesterday.

Pace, G

Awake Sweet Stolen Dream

       "Awake Sweet Stolen Dream"

I wandered outside my conscious element of thought
drifting into wonderlust of dreamland sequences like photographs
as I inhaled fragrant winds gliding upon gossamer wings
of lace and satin, streaming through pink cotton candy clouds.

I touched a rainbow traveling warp speed to rendezvous
with my lover, who appeared at my sheer will's emotion
for I had cast a magic spell upon his heart with hypnotic trance
he, helpless, had no recourse but to obey my dreamy wishes.

I tantalized my lovers' soul with happy innuendo as my muse
in dreams, love escalates to ultimate desire without penalty
then, suddenly, a rival resonated her displeasure of my game
fury of the White Witch chased me with her fiery wand, to mame.

my delicate dream evolved into nightmarish tone of fearfulness
as she drew closer, I realized consequences to treat love frivolously
so blatantly. as my tender tears urged my mind desperately to
awake from sweet stolen dream whose horror left me breathless.

in panic state secreting droplets of perspiration on flesh and bone
I released my fair silky skin from black lace negligee' trying
to open sleepy eyes of green stinging from tears of sorrow
peering across the bed, your warmth still lying there to caress.

that night I made a vow to cherish love so good and true
for dreams are predictors; omens of future events to come
waking to reality I treasure the beauty of love, not as a toy
to trifle with, as love will banish nightmares from realm of dreams.

as I awake from my sweet stolen dream of  wanton folly
my heart is renewed in spirit with a softer side to dwell
among Angels rather than the evil dark side of manipulation
I now know Heaven is real .. and so is Hell.

Last night while you were sleeping

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Heavy Footprints Of Love

the sorrow lies in the reverberation 
of wanting you ….always wanting you…..
it taunts me like a starving wretch
it echoes in the corners of my mind….

your name on my lips and soft on my tongue
red and raw and pulsing with such blatant desire
how could the whole world not feel this fire ?

love is much stronger than rampant lust alone….
(it could break through steel….this love I‘ve known)

it rides in silver wings of angels in the sky
stretching supplication toward the heart of weeping
pleading on pristine white clouds for respite 
as it plunges into the whirlpool of want 
                                              and on tiptoes
it came in….treading so delicately on this tattered heart
rose petal soft …..but completely destructive
battered in the need of needing you….

please….this love is much too powerful to withstand 
wrapped in want that leaves me naked in the rain….
and I want to hide from the stone pelts rising
the punch of gut hurt heat that comes (inevitably)
when its so far away that no cry on wind could catch it
oceans betwixt and blue is an enemy….

where are you my love as I wake in the night….
are you sleeping? do you dream of me? 
I dreamt of you….and I woke up weeping….
empty arms and solemn seconds ticking by in anguish

I want you….just in one kiss to your lips 
though one would never suffice
for I am greedy, my love and it cannot be quenched
with a single kiss….(could one kiss ever last a lifetime)

I am a beggar riding a pegasus
eager and white as muscles ripple against a black sky
her wings soar effortlessly
and I am flying toward you….yet…I never do reach you…
hijacked we were….in time and we are prisoners…

a little like the dream one has of running…
but standing motionless
frustration beseeches me and then consumes me
into a mass of messy “what do I do”

can you feel my need as it tears through me
raging and wanton….completely blatant

each day seems a thousand with your hands not about me
teasing my skin until I cannot breathe but to cry out your name
would it in some way repay you and describe this love….?

I am you… are me… a mirror its your eyes I see….

forgive me if I repeat myself….

the sorrow lies in the reverberation 
of wanting you ….always wanting you…..

You Shine Your Light

You shine your light in darkest night
Your beacon burning there so clear
If I had wings then I’d take flight 
You shine your light in darkest night 
I feel your warmth holding me tight 
As in your arms you draw me near 
You shine your light in darkest night
Your beacon burning there so clear

A Soul Awakened

She is the muse to her own sorrow; She is the digger of her grave. She is the painter of her ocean view and every fatal wave. She is the shadow of her Father; She is the darkness in your sight. She is the night without the stars surrounding pale moonlight. She is the music with no words; She is sweet love without the reason. She is your dreamer with submission cold by warmth with every season. She is your pet with cold intentions; She is your baby scared and shaken. She is the bold and pure- the lost and found, She is a soul awakened.

Live The Cliches

I. (love)

We are meant to live the clichés,
resuscitating words
and rehabilitating their wounds
into a fertile viewpoint,
building respirators from clichés
to filter-out the virulent dust kicked-up
by the marching pigs.

(revived clichés offer back breath
in an exchange of circular breathing)

The swine contort love
into armaments of antipathy,
aiming where it hurts most --
pushing buttons, 
squeezing triggers, 
pulling pins. 

Even though we are natural born hypocrites,
we don't have to let this corner us
into using love as a weapon.

The pen is mightier than the sword,
so I wield both,
sharpen my quill on the blade's edge.

If need be, use the pen for a counter-strike,
but only channel love in defence.

II. (poetry)

The pigs march to a beat 
of nuclear blasts
that bring poetry's flag
nearer to half-mast.

Poetry should stand on its own merit,
instead of leaning on smiles hiding shanks
constructed with aspirations of popularity,

or smiles filled with slivers 
from far too much fence-sitting,
too worried about the moral majority,
to see the complexity within simplicity

and clarity,


propped-up against degrees
writing poems drier than the Sahara --

husks of aspartame-laced lines
tumbling across dunes, only to be imploded 
by atomic-pork mushroom clouds, 

their fallout marring parchment 
into a wasteland 
devoid of accountability and integrity.

III. (dreams)

We must not fear saying: "never".
Surrender to love, but never surrender
to the jealous captains attempting
to hook and net the defenders of Neverland.

Never lose faith in Neverland.

With compasses of conscience
beating in hearts kept young,
navigate through the smoke and mirror smog
emitted by the marching dead.

We must never give up on our dreams.

Dream about the courage needed 
to love everyone and everything,
to even find love for our enemies
conducting genocide upon
the language of a purer intent --

to dream about word-seedlings
pushing through the arid rind
of dying poetry,

in hope for a more organic fruition
connected closer to our hearts,

in hope that poetry 
will once again stand on its own merit.

A Beautiful Reverie

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

Natures Beauty

Sunshine beams sparkles softly golden magic 
Breathtaking horizon of dreams spells casting 

Feelings, faces and memories within 
Shall follow the nature´s endless spin 

Creeping higher morning glory rising perfect splendor 
Smiling warm rays inside hot radiance glows 

Dizzy with pleasure, tears a falling star rain wet drop of heaven 
Total silence no vibration pearls on leaves dried 

Songbirds sing praise in a heavenly choir whistling tunes 
Enchanting dewdrops sparkling shivers, silver glistens 

Diamond shining clearly colors beauty awakening 
Rainbow riches polishing a heart to the highest luster 

Into a landscape of dreams and hope 
The green grass will grow for another tomorrow

Both Sides for Me

The look of pity on the saleswoman's face said it all
my paint spattered clothing, however the jeans fit
just didn't have that panache, chic pizazz, tongue hanging
inspiration for desire a young woman out to have.

The car dealer took one look at me, led me to the far
corner of the lot, showed me the used hot rods
the beater four doors, the budget cutters like I'd rode
but I wanted glossy black, silver hood ornament, brand new.

Paint is supposed to sit on top of your nails, but underneath
is advantageous when compared to oil, to muck, to dirty guts
so I was a step on the ladder of the working man, 
I could even afford to buy hose, which I still don't wear.

There's something to be said for the over glasses, safety 
glasses look, white paper coat, something comical 
one supposes, but the purple overalls worn for skiing
which suddenly I could afford, made me my nephews joke.

At times I waited for a date who preferred the bar
called and said maybe later, because passion rumbled
between us when we kissed but I didn't want a flit,
disease, broken promise, I wanted to be embraced

Cozy now, body motion are promises and content
passion is beyond me, the bar on the patio in back
the hand I always hold a missing app that answers
more lonely than any mistaken wish that he'd be the one.

Stars, too, I climbed to them in my dream, climbed
the Space Needle and found my self with no safety net
I always avoided those climbs the dreams more nightmare
even though I do what I am told, to reach, to soar.

Sometimes now I wear black on gold dresses which fit
to the nth inch, so I can barely sit, hold champagne
to watch golden bubbles float against the elegant
white linen against starry night event, that's rich, success.

Dump it gladly for a romp on the beach, the missing
something like threads through a woven maze,
like an angel's hope. When I dump it all and seek
there's grace lying on the shores between the rocks

a pooled place where deer come to lick minerals,
boulders come unglued and sail down river
and think, maybe I could do that. Maybe I could
unglue all the expectations and rearrange the world.

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....

I Dreamt of You Last Night

We stood on the bow
of an old wooden ship.
Splashing waves; music sounds;
salty mists with each dip.
I, in a white pheasant dress;
you only in jeans.
No one else on the deck;
just us in bare feet.
Your chest, warm to my back;
wrapped in your loving arms.
Mystic waters of black;
Ocean sky casts moon and stars.
Ancient lands strangely appear
as completely in full view.
You softly whisper in my ear,
"This world's for me and you."
A realm only for us;
in dreams we meet there.
Awakened, I touch
dried salt in my hair.

The Blue Poet

I am the Blue Poet.
The uneasy man.
Who longs to be loved,
or just to have a friend.

My heart whisphers a low melody
on a faint, cool evening
thinking of her.
Once in my arms,
laying on my bed of roses.
Now she is gone.
I cannot think anymore!
It is hard, to love again,
When all your love has been taken away.
... I am the Blue Poet.

I am the Blue Poet,
That walks the bluish, dawn and dew covered streets
in the the October evenings and nights.
But I tell you, I wasn't always so blue.
No! I was once alive... happy... romantic,
... till Love went away!

Now I sit in the wayward poetry clubs,
drinking club soda and snapping my fingures
to a finished performance on a poem about love.
Written by a soft, spoken seventeen year old girl.

Soon, it is my turn to give my poem a read.
I stand on a lone stage, with a spotlight drownding me in blindness.
I face the faces, who look at me and smile.
A clap, and a cough, bring my head up.
I look out upon the sitting crowd.
To see that one face
that speaks to me,
without the movement of the mouth.
The face never showed though, and my head fell back down.

I start to read.
A vase of emotions kill me and swallow me up.
I try to hold back tears, but no more could I halter.
I finished, with a salty tear, rolling down my rough and oiled cheek.
I leave the crowd at ovation
and leave the women, all with tears in their eyes.

I come down from the stage, leaving the bright spotlight.
I shake hands, give hugs,
and collect my pay, and have another round of club soda.
Then, I go down the midnight alleyways of sprinkled city streets
finding myself a cozy room.

I think of her for a moment,
then off to sleep.
I dream of one time laughs, and hugs and kisses.
I cry in my sleep,
...For I am the Blue Poet.

Dream of Rapture

If I am dreaming let me dream forever
never let me wake from this sweet rapture
as I lie within your arms that hold me tender
wrapped in warmth and lost in sweet surrender
locked in eyes that show me what they're feeling
tasting wine laced kisses so appealing
as my melting heart is set on fire
the love I'm feeling fueling my desire
nothing else exists and I'm enraptured
dying a sweet death wherein I'm captured
lost within this land of never, never
if I am dreaming let me dream forever

Oh, how much I dread the
Coming of night,
For its darkness 
Or its
Shadows’ frightening dances
On the walls
Cause of night’s charming 
Whom no eyelids, 
Burdened with the toils of day, 
Could ever resist,                                                      
This charismatically delightful
Lord of the dreams,
Sleep is the name.

It is he who into his                    
Magic palaces to allure, me,
Into his citadel of mesmerizing 
Of Kingdoms and riches and
Pleasures unending,
All efforts in tempting me
My eyes to close for his marvels to see,
Miserably fail,
As, gallantly, with all my might
I resist not into his
Compelling trap to fall,
The dream I live with you,
My love,
I don’t wish, with any of his dreams,

Is This a Dream

Is this a dream?
Am I sane?
Is this true?
I thought I lost you

The night my eyes were glasses full of water
Tears falling done a cliff into my mouth tasting like saltwater
So, tell me

Is this a dream?
Am I sane?
Is this true?
I thought I lost you

That pain was too real
You walked away like nothing happened
I tried to get over that atrocious reality
And walk on the shore of love and hate, like these feelings weren't developed

Is this a dream?
Am I sane?
Is this true?
I thought I lost you(X2)

Fantasies are for younger humans
Not a singer with no fans
Your image makes it so certain
Still, flaccid feelings make it uncertain

Is this a dream?
Am I sane?
Is this true?
I thought I lost you

Lovers of the Storm

Old Friends that say hello
Who share a secret memory?
Away from the road now travelled
For in her eyes their secret hides
Betrayed by the glint of a held back tear
Of a love that could never be
A love that trembled the senses
And in a stolen moment, over a bottle of wine
 The dream runs free
Dissolving the relationships of reality
For deep within my soul
A world with an incorruptible sky
Plays host to a lovers imagination
 Where the electricity from your touch
Gives birth to the storm
Your passion fuelling the Hurricane
Within me
And in the eye of the storm
 Time stands still, 
And my love cradles your soul
Hoping for another chance
And as I fall back to reality
 In the dying wind I can hear your heart
A whispered beat that calls my name
But your Romeo always knew
That dreams were all we had
This Love was always just out of reach
And now I am left to dream of yesterday
Lost in a bottle of wine
Yet I still hear your thoughts 
Though life has abandoned me
O my sweet, sweet love
Your love will always be there
 And this dreamer who dreams of you
 Will always be here.
Longing for another Storm

drifting plankton

I was thinking
of you touching my belly
in one moment in time,
and me kissing your shoulder
in another.

I was thinking
of talk
and whiskey,
the sound of bass
and shyness.

I have no wishes.
I was just thinking
how it could be
if the world stayed round
but got so much smaller,
for only one room to be,
for you and me.

Groundswell Girl - Named by JB

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

Snow sprinkles the ground
as delicate as sugar
crystallizing the exterior with a romantic heritage
only found in the heart of a child's imagination.
Like happiness it can melt in your hands,
and like happiness it can grow bitter like the ice you slip on
Forming miraculously to the curves of the earth
hugging till the land soaks in it's providence
white like the pages I battle with
Falling so passionately you'd think it was falling in love with the ground
And when it lands,
A blanket of perfection
glistening the season to a crisp
gently the sun arises
"there's no where to go today,
I'm just going to sit and enjoy the magic."

Thank you God for bird eggs

When love lies in a crypt unnamed
And it's fire lives on lips untamed
And the wild fury wakes from it's sleep
to find the who or what it seeks
With thirst and hunger of the starving
Armed with strength men find alarming
and the valor of a silent knight
Antisipating whatever unknown fight
built for battle and not for flight
Searching both the days and nights
for the thing that illudes the sight
Made of love and things measured
identified by hopes and things treasured
Found only by the eyes of the soul
to satisfy an insatiable goal
Where only grace can intercede
and the lonely has met its chosen seed
To give to it's own special need
That one of which the dreamer dreamt
That angel for whom the eyes have wept
The secrets that one's heart has kept
All fulfilled to the deepest depth
To the place where inspiration ferried
and to the person imagination carried
All wrapped in things called thought
Inescapable this thing where it's caught
My heaven, where my paradise is you
My perfect, is everything you do
My soul has found its rest
with love, that turned my crypt into a nest
With you, my soul has been blessed
with peace, and this is happiness.

And we are left here Like maggots—dirty, parentless…devastated Always feeding on the gruel…the cruel Fattening our lives in the moneyless bilk Shocking like a bee sting, yet soft as silk We are the forgotten I am watching the others grow rotten But I am cleansed and raw with glee Because…though blinded with slime…I SEE… I rise to the sound of the agonizing screams Of rapes, murders, of violent fists…weeping minds My definition of true finds… I smile when any possible hope arrives Fate laughs, knowing I constantly scream inside I am amused of it all…I can’t stop laughing As bitter tears began to fall I HATE ALL OF YOU… I WANT TO KILL YOU ALL… But I love that I can take anything From the nothing we have all been labeled The sick, the low…the mentally unstable Watch me roll up in a ball A naughty tease to death’s lull I love your silence… I love your intense fall And we are more alive than any of you We are crazed by your belligerence Aching to be emotionless SHARE YOUR INDIFFERENCE SHARE IT… Give us something to be left with So the others can die As Fate veers its head looking in the mirror Listen to her laughter—do you hear her? She watches and waits To find her maggots have grown wings… Screw your selfish indifference...we fall to fly We are more alive than any of you Though quickly we die

She Is Real

Exiting out like never before
I grab tightly upon the door
Holding on for all my might
Can't let her out of my sight

The girl in my dream is real
My empty heart she did steal
Every night she keeps me warm
We've weathered many a storm

I need to stay, for she won't go
Does she love me, I need to know
You've been part of my master plan
I will be your one and only lover man 

I'll dream a dream of you tonight
In my arms I'll hold you so tight
You're my fair maiden, I'm your hero
Turning me into something, from zero

Linguistic Dreams

Strokes of eloquence
breathe airbrushed scenes
painting my world in linguistic dreams

How tasteless bland these buds would be
If phrased thy love were unspoken to me
like honey barren of sweetened flavor
a silent, save-less savior

In awe
giving pause
grant witness your thoughts
grandiloquence such passion draw
as violent rage to sweet stillness assaults

Like Iridescent colors 
wrapped in transparent light
are the words of my lover
divinities descendant a lingual delight

If loosed a cellos strings 
an octave low 
an unworthy note
void would be the magic 
at the touch of the bow 

But No! 
I hear the heavens open
my soul spun in a rainbows glow
oration poised a symphonic token
of love as it was intended to show

Let my days grow ever old
bereft my riches in tow
but take not thy language of love for me
lest my light fade away for the woe

Simply pleading...
Don't go, don't go 
Thine eloquence to have and to hold

A White Dress

I saw a perfect shade of white
So elegant
That it must have been a figment
So elegant

Thump, Thump, Thump, Thump
Says the heart in my chest
When it sees you

The way it lays on you
Is stellar and sublime like the clouds in the sky
A white dress so perfect
That it blinds me with your radiating fairness
The whiteness of a soul
Is a cool shade of grey compared to your beauty

Tremble, Tremble
My knees are now dancing 
In your presence 

A rare sparkling jewel you are
Gleaming brightly
Like a white sun parting the clouds
Gleaming brightly

Futile Dance

I watch you from afar
Smiling at your friends
As they envelop you in warmth
While I stand in the frosty mist

You are the sun
I am the earth
Basking in your light
Never to touch you

If I could only reach you
The sweetest dream life would be
And never would I let go
But the dream never comes

A wall divides us
Built with stones of insecurity
Each time I get closer
Fear pulls me back

Your heart is also afraid
I wish to comfort it
To give you strength, life, love
To light your way

Your eyes turn to me
My mind races
You speak to me
My heart skips a beat

Muscles turn to stone
Mind turns to cloud
I mutter something back
We return to our futile dance

Closed eyes cannot hide you
Every minute reminds me of you
Never shall I know your heart
As I fear it has no room for mine

My Sarah

Just a little note to say,
That I love you in so many different ways.
When I see your face at first sight,
When I dream about you late at night.
A thought of walking by the sea,
Another of lying under an old oak tree.
Your legs, your breasts, your supple skin,
Your perfect body matching that within.
A style, a grace, a dignity,
A feeling of deepening intimacy.
Our life that’s wrapped around you and me,
Our kids; its meant to be.
That smile that shows a thousand sides to,
The real you that’s hidden from view.
Your beautiful eyes, a mirror to your soul
Your dreams inside which make a perfect whole.
Your tender touch as you tickle my chest,
Your passionate kiss that beats the rest.
That dream of a cottage under the trees,
That provides a protective canopy.
Your laugh, your warmth, your care,
A lovely innocence laid bare.
I think of how I have become a better man,
And how I adore you, have become your biggest fan.
All of these are the reasons why,
I feel like I want to cry.
When I write this note to say,
That I love you in so many different ways.

Our love and trust deepens

I watched a while on a summer's day,
Above the field in which I lay:
The clouds take form and assume their place,
And in one I saw a face.
A face obscure and yet familiar.
What name that face? Twas sweet Delia!
For one brief moment I saw her peer;
I felt a subtle grayness near.
That shade of gray between dream and sleep,
When thoughts we think, but do not keep.
I watched a while and in conscious thought,
The elusive dream at last I caught.

Of These Things I Am Sure

I do not love you by comparison.
It isn't borne of desperation, pride, or pain.
I do not need you for counsel, release.
I do not dream of you to alter you or your words.
I do not follow you because I am weak.

I follow you so that I might go too.
I dream of you, and know reality is better.
I need you because I choose to.
I love you because I do.
It's simpler.

Dreams they're all around me,

it's hard to tell  real life.

Monsters like in fairly tales,

my emotion turns to strife. 

The sun starts getting closer,

my skin it starts to burn. 

I look for somewhere to run

but don't know where to turn. 


He makes his way towards me majestic also wise,

it was hard for me to distinguish between what's loving and what's lies.

My heart it starts to flutter,

My body starts to fall-

I try to scream out for help 

but I don't know who to call.


Thus the journey's over,

now I'm on the ground.

Tears fall from my eyes-

my heart nowhere to be found.

The Affair

your eyes go
tap on my eyes
your finger spangles to the same tune
curling back down to the others
freeing your lip
teasing my pitter-patter

I stand naked
being ruled by whispers
standing naked
life having jumped from dream
to insomnia
life having jumped from side glances and smiles
to stopping light from leaking out doors

the 3 AM window 
all to pitter-patter goes my heart
a Cheshire Cat grinning
a smoking gun

I have a dream
That I'll get another,and better job
I have a dream
That I'll have a 5 bedroom house with fireplace
I have a dream 
This house will have 4 1/2 bathrooms
I have a dream
I'll have a fishing pond in the back yard
I have a dream
I'll own lots of fishing equipment
I have a dream
My kids will finish school
I have a dream 
All my kids,and grand kids-dreams will come true
I have a dream
My grand-kids will finish school as well
 I have a dream
That I'll be able to start them all a bank account
I have a dream
To own the vehicle of my dreams a Hummer
I have a dream 
To own a nice pick-up truck
I have a dream
To take at least a week vacation with the love of my life
I have a dream
To make all the love of my life dreams come true
I have a dream
To go to the beach for the very 1st time
I have a dream
To not owe any debts
I have a dream
To be able to pay my tithes,and offering every Sunday
I have a dream
To spend lots of quality time with my mom
I have a dream
To be able to give mom a few thousand dollars
I have a dream
To go to any restaurant I never been to before
I have a dream
That I'll be able to help the homeless,and the poor
I have a dream
To have Uncle John a new water well dugged,better electricity,and trailor
I have a dream
That I'll hit it big with my poetry
I have a dream 
I'll be known world wide because of my poetry
I have a dream
All drugs,alcohol.cigarettes,and diseases will disappear
I have a dream
That all things that are not of God will go away
I have a dream
That every race will get a long
I have a dream
That gas prices will drop quiet a bit
I have a dream
To own some suits to wear to church
I have a dream
To live a long,and happy life
I have a dream
With no surgeries,or medication I will loose 200 lbs
I have a dream
To be all God wants me to be
I have a dream
I'll be able to make donations to charity
I have a dream
To go to my 1st family reunion
I have a dream
To meet my favorite wrestler The Undertaker
I have a dream
To lead songs in a popular choir
I have a dream
To see my Savior face to face
I have a dream
To hear him say well done my good,and faithful servant.

But You Do Lie

Laying here in my bed
Listening to your deep and shallow breath
Such a smooth and calm sound
I roll over and lay a hand on your chest
Too much movement it seems
For you rolled onto your side
As I steal my hand away
I close my eyes and try not to cry
I get out of bed and move to the couch
I lay there in silence, smoke in hand
I try and calm my pounding heart
Finally drifting off to dream land
I wake with a start
A gasp caught in my chest
I feel strong arms gently squeeze
And a warm hand on my breast
I stiffen with fear
Until you softly say my name
The tension slowly ebbing
Until calmness has the reigns
You kiss the back of my neck
In that slow and sensual way
Repeating my name in a whisper
A game you know how to play
You gently roll me over
And take my head in your hands
You kiss my forehead lightly
The beginning of a dance
You gaze at me deeply
And said “I love you so much I can’t stand it”
You begin kissing my eyes and lips
Stealing like a bandit
I take you in my arms
And feel my insides quake
You run your fingers through my hair
Giving it a little shake
You pull away from me slowly
And looked deeply in my eyes
I blush and turn away
I don’t want to see any lies
You lay down behind me
And hold me so very tight
And then you said those words
I dream of every night
“You are all I ever wanted,
You are all I’ll ever need,
I’ll do anything you want me to,
Just spend your life with me”
I don’t know why I did it
But I begin to cry
He pulls me even closer
“I love you, Trust me I don’t lie”
I can feel myself roll over
What happens next, who knows
For I awake with a start
The tears still soaking into my pillow
I finally get my bearing
Everything is as it seems
It turns out you do lie
But only in my dreams

In Depth of Circumstance

     In depth of circumstance, the heart shall write,
For senses, save one, deceive me tonight-
Pensive contemplation gives in to you,
While words, as they always are yours, flow through-
What she cannot fathom the heart consumes,
Tracing line after line, the passion blooms-
Oh, has this dream come to open my eyes,
To embellish your infinite surprise?
     Life as we know it has changed—I feel it!
The heart loves all—she cannot conceal it!
Listen to her sing with the pulse of love,
To the rhythmic peace of the fervent dove-
She reaches for the heavy soul she finds,
Squeezing its worries, its heartaches, and binds-
It is you, oh soul, with your thirst for more,
That opens a world we can both explore.

Waiting for you

Once told you I wanted you, Look at us now. Feel that I need you. I’m not quite sure how. Let you in and I don’t want you to leave. Is this something you can believe. 
I’m losing myself in your expression, not letting you go now that’s my confession.
Your right in front of me and my body is still. Counting my blessings, can this be real? Felt your lips touching mine, Still cant get this out of my mind. 
Caught up in each other we’ve lost track of time, With each moment that passes I realize your mine. 
If this is a dream I beg you  not to wake me, If its meant to be we’ll feel it inside. Cant control my feelings I’m all over the place. My hands feel so empty not holding your face. Don’t want this to end, I Cant let this end.
Don’t mind me while my eyes ponder you, I would stop but none of me wants to. Starting to leave now, cant seem to go. Feeling you want me, its starting to show. Pulling me closer,  I’m losing my breath. Losing my breath again.
If this is a dream I beg you  not to wake me, If its meant to be we’ll feel it inside. Cant control my feelings I’m all over the place. My hands feel so empty not holding your face. Your all that I've wanted, all that I've needed. How did it begin, I know this wont end.

A diary's page (JW)

The week ends 
The mornings of anticipation when I
From prayer past through virtual doors
Another world without seas or sky
Another world where invisible drops pour
Upon the garden of my heart, and bring
The fragrance of refreshing day, and chase
The pain of wait or distance while I cling
To electronic thoughts and dream your face.

The weekend begins
The long hours of lonely separation, and we
Apart held twain only by a string of faith
That in his presence none can be lonely
Only the impatience no grace consecrate
For once again I learn loyalty to one I do not see
And keep my heart open like a country gate
Yawning for every drop of misty flowers and beauty
Time shuttles dreams while still I wait.

The week starts
For me one day too late, for your coming I pine
To hear your voice, taste the nectar of your lips
Feel the flesh that frame your face, the soft line
And swollen comb where sweet the honey drips
How softly from shoulder down the moonlight falls
Leaving us naked, vulnerable in the bare light
Where our breaths are tides. Something sweet enthralls
Me, and I cannot push back the day into night

The week keeps
The cycle of my heart in little chains of hours 
And I endure each pulse and passing of the stars
Find my escape among the falling bloom of lowers
And ever moan like tides against the stony bars.
I am discontented to think and yet never to be sure
About your state of comfort or happiness
To dream of joy and languish, but cannot give you more
To edge my faith that always you are blessed.

Wearing camouflage
in wall-flower tradition
no longer seeing another
who’ll take the time to peer within. 

Perpetually in autumn’s dress,
near the deep sleep of winters cold,
though nothing close to bitterness
in her tresses could one behold.

With tranquility the foundation 
of each new days new sun rising
True beauty flows unseen
winding gracefully between 
past’s mountains.

As the parting lights of each sunset
blushes the cheeks of a day’s survival
the night begins in loving hope
of a dream that will bring revival

Casting camouflage
aside with dreams of him;
the only one who took the time
to see and peer within.

For them

For them.

To her the word love refers to a boy.
Something she yearns for and misses dearly.

The day they met was cold and fraught with January chill.

“Oh, that does seem so long ago.”

That is the untarnished memory she replays over and over again when events in her life go array.
Back then it was tangible and real, their lives together had not been succumb to so much misery and woe.

They have triumphed, failed, and even caused each other more pain than can be imagined; But through it all they always walked the path together, holding each others hand.

She loves him unconditionally and for that some people cant understand but love needs no excuses, certainly not for them.

She adores him for working so hard, slaving to the man trying to base a future and a plan for them, but she feels guilty that  their small American dream over the years has always led down a dead end.
With today’s hard times she knows they are not to blame, but still her idol hands carry burden with them.

A plot of land, a small farm, and a home to call their own so they may grow old.
that’s all the pair desire.

He loves her to, a thought that at times is unfathomable.
He admires her dreams, even if they are bigger than the world and never distills fear in her that they wont one day come true. She thinks ill rationally and believes in things as a child would, but this merely makes him smile at her spontaneous outlook.

To him she is like a wild bee, searching ferociously for something.
At times he doesn’t think she will ever find it, that’s why its so hard to see her cry.

Life hasn’t been fair for them.
It’s a tragic book that just keeps reading on.

But they muscle through living on their dream and knowing that as long as they have each other, everything will be alright.

And as they drive home to their house with no walls, catching glimpses of each other in their ratty car they don’t feel so alone.

Behind those blue eyes, she will be forever nineteen to him and to her, as she gazes into his brown large pupils; the boy she knows has grown into a man and at that moment they know, one day all the sacrifices they have made will pay off.

Letter Dreams

Somewhere beyond at the end of these letters

Is a girl in a funny hat that answers them

She is small and pretty, a gentle soul

That touches the earth as it touches her

She is the dream this letter is made of

A dream rich in tenderness

And the florid colors of hope

She is that quiet place I rest my weary soul

A place far away where dreams lie down

To hide their faces beneath a clouded veil

And wink at those who would believe in them

She is my distant dream place -

A place of soft eyes and open hearts

Where smiles shine like summer rain

And tomorrow never comes

It is she that this letter dream is made of

That special place where beauty still lives

And letters are written in the hand of hope

For the gentle soul that will read them

I lay my head down to go to sleep
But I only  have thoughts of you
The beauty in your eyes so deep
Your walk, thinking you're out of view

Your vision deep inside my mind
Floating like jasmine in the air
The twinkling stars are aligned
Causing my fears to disappear

My hopes, my dreams, my love
Alone again in perfect harmony
Looking for a sign from above
That together forever shall be

Love Sits and Waits

Love Sits and Waits 
Inside the empty void of the heart
Waiting for that special moment
That will light the spark

That one special person
That will take the place
Of the hurt in a heart
That will put a glow on a face

The one special touch 
That will make you want to cry
That the one special kiss
That won't let you say goodbye

I'm sitting here, waiting
For that one moment in time
When I will find my true love
Who will say to me "You are mine"

For that touch and that kiss 
That will never,ever end
For that one day I'm waiting for
When I say "I do" to my life-long bestfriend

So, I sit here waiting
If my dream will come true
For, in every dream I dream
My "one special person" is you

Imagine opening a door
Only to be sucked into a vortex of abandon
Imagine drowning in an ocean of cool blue
Washing away all your pain
Imagine being reborn as a bird
Soaring over a dreamland of passion
Imagine floating on a silver cloud
Your heart sinking and ebbing
Imagine your heart racing the wind
Dancing to a fairy’s magical tune
Imagine closing your eyes
Seeing a thousand enchanting mages
Imagine opening your eyes
To an explosion of all the colours
Imagine seeing all things beautiful
A smile so sweet and sensual
Imagine tasting the dream of your life
Your taste buds screaming with delight
Imagine touching your lips to a petal
So soft, velvety, rich and creamy
Imagine drinking the nectar
Of the prettiest passion flower
Imagine hot liquid gold
Touching your lips with a fire
Sending a glow to your cheeks
Yet chills ripple down your spine
Imaging every inch of you
Shiver like a trembling leaf
Imagine every breath you take
Coming from a well with no end
Imagine your heart ripped open
Laid bare for the world to see
Imagine being hit by a train
Leaving you wanting to be hit again
Imagine running lost in a desert
Your soul thirsty for more fire
Imagine a moment of sheer ecstasy
A dream you never want to wake up from
If you can imagine all this
You can imagine love’s first kiss

Dream Space

Close your eyelids right up tight
At last it’s come that time of night
I can tell by the countenance on your face
You’ve gone there slipped into your dream space

That place you go to have a dream
Or nightmare that’s not true, it would seem
That place where only you can be
Yet I hope there is a place for me

To save you from that nightmare real
To sweeten your dream and add a good feel
For I know when I’m in my dream space
You’re always there in every place

Dream space what a place to be
No matter what it is you see
Dream space comes easily to some maybe
Yet not so easily for me

That’s why I sit here at one thirty nine
I can’t find the dream space that is mine
It seems it is so far away
May I find it soon I pray

So dream space please hold my in your deep embrace
Let that look be the countenance on my face
Let me slumber and dream through tight closed eyes
If only if only can you sympathise

Seeing your face every time
I close my eyes.
Every dream I dream is 
of you.
Wanting you near me, knowing 
I can't have you.
Knowing your life is with
someone else now, as so is mine.
Knowing that we belong 
together, knowing in my mind,
my heart, and my soul.
Thoughts of you racing through
my mind, my heart beats faster
and faster.
Can't catch my breath.
Remembering, remembering the 
last words you said to me.
Remembering the words,"I'll
get you back, you will be mine."
Waiting, hoping, praying its
not too late.
Why do we remember, remember 
the past?
It doesn't help the future,
it confuses the future.
If that is so, why am I 
so happy remembering the past
and yet so sad, living the future?

More than a Crush

How did a girl like me, meet a guy like you?
You’re the kind of guy girls dream about,
Almost too good to be true
This isn’t just a crush, I think about you everyday
And whenever I’m feeling down, you always know what to say
At first I didn’t want to get too attached
Because I had seen the pain of love gone a stray
But u make me feel loved and promised me
You’d never hurt me in any way
As I sit here writing this poem, I’m constantly thinking of you
Knowing this is more than a crush, hoping it’s a dream come true

May I Dream Of You Tonight?

May I dream of you tonight?
Let me caress the picture of you.
I see your face – stars are so bright…
I know it well – nothing is new.

Let me feel warmth of your mouth
And your breath on my hair.
I never talked about my love,
Perhaps I was not aware…

I’d like to find proper words
To show my feelings this night.
But I can’t  cope – I’m helpless,
No word seems proper and right

May I dream of you tonight?
These dreams will never come true,
But let our souls unite,
Only now let me dream of you...

Simulacrum Soul

Simulacrum Soul

Are you a dream

Did I consider and formulate

The prose images

Which captivate my soul

So completely

And well up from me

Such a missing

As to leave me hanging


On tones of desire

Are you a dream

Romantic held

And beauty seen

Someone I may once have


The touch of you


My fingertips reminisce

Somewhere in my soul

Are you a dream

A dream of waiting

A dream of longing

A pounding echo of


Spoken so close


Your neck once felt 

The brush of my breath

Fall soft tingled

Turned your ear

To my lips


Whispered then

I love you

While my arms in worship

Wrapped about you

Only to bring

The depths of your eyes


So much closer

To mine

Are you a dream
I think not

My Dream

I dreamt of you last night
i dreamt thaat you were mine
I dreamt that we had made love
  for the very first time
I dreamt that we were alone together
It was such a wonderful dream
I dreamt that we loved each other
  and that we would never part
I dreamt that we told each other that
  and we meant it with all our heart
I dreamt a dream
A wonderful dream about you and me
It was full of sensuality
And love
I wanted you
You wanted me
We had each other gladly
I gave you me
You gave me you
Our love is raw
But innocent and clean
I wish that what I dreamt
  would become reality
But boy, did I dream a dream

First Love

First Love

Her eyes showed me a way,
Her unique smile let my tears go away,
Her Beautiful face made me to say,
Is this Love, or what???

Started to have feeling of love,
Started to behave nicely and different,
Started to smile when there was no reason to smile,
Still, Is this Love, or what??

Tried to approach her, but felt belittled, lowly, shy,
Tried to ask her for date, but felt afraid, scared, shocked,
Tried to express my love, felt would be rejected, hurt, unheard,
Well still, Is this love, or what?

I can fix anything, why not this thing,
I can talk to any girl, why not this girl,
I can really convince anyone, why not this one,
Came before many girl, why not this girl.

Do please not tell me its just nothing,
Do tell me how to do something about this thing...Love,
Do tell me anything about this thing…Love,
Will there be rejection or appreciation??????????

With closed eyes,because this burning light,
The clouds will go beyond the golden day,
And sun will rest in your hair, a playful ray,             
But blue will stretch a hand to inner sight;                 
Some dreams are riding yet, the friendly pony.
Neighbors: the fairy`s breasts in joyous rest; 
With closed eyes, the morning wind will test
And run a bee along no time wet honey;

Old summer buried its face in gentle light and sand;
Some dreams grew like shinning clouds above       
By covering the castles,then a part of our beach;    
No wind to run them , except a tender hand.        
The taste of salt and sea are slowly speaking love;     
While changeable waves, to blond laughs reach...

Ode to Mi Corazon

As I pull weeds from cracks in sidewalks
Yout sit on top of thrones made of solid gold
And I pay no mind to the women around me,
Only to your beauty do I hold an Ode.

I see my fair Spanish lady
my daring, sweet rose with thorns,
That run up and down her spine.
As she stops in the daily parade
Waving at the peasants,
She looks at me and summons her guards
Too take me away.

Her beauty is unbearable.
I cannot take not being with her
For a single moment in my life.
Her hair,
Black like coal,
Her smile is bright, as the first rays of the Red Sun
In the dawn.
Her lips painted with ruby lipstick,
her silk laced dress and shawl wrap around her,
Like a beautiful butterfly in her cocoon.
Her skin of olive, dark color and her green eyes.
My God, those sweet and piercing green eyes
Oh, how they hit my soul and make me shiver with excitment.
She is intoxicating and I am intoxicated in her beauty.

She is like an angel, a Latina beauty who walks the streets paved gold,
As I walk the cracked, cobblestone walkways.
She shines in the Spanish sun, like a dimoand in the ruff
As you blow the dust off her sweet brow,
she glows and sparkles with extordinary excellence.

She is beautiful and sweet and kind.
She loves me, but her father minds.
I am only a peasant, and she royalty.
Can our love ever be together in one holy matrimony?
I pray to the Lord, of all that is good,
Please give me a sign that she loves me.

Soon a storm came over,
blowing me down to the ground
And a cloud of dust swallowed me whole.
A great Conquistador on a great white stallion
pulled me up and told me that she wanted to see me.
I shacked with nervous of joy as I followed the warrior.

She was there, under a palm tree
Near a beautiful beach in Barcelona.
She smiled and a glow covered me with passion.
I hugged her and kissed her upon her sweet lips.
I tasted virginity and she tasted loyalty.
We both tasted beauty and harmony.
As the warrior left us,
We made love upon a vigin white sheet,
Soon covered with a flowing river of red.
She moaned with exticy and love was in the air.
The Ode to my sweet Spaniad, Mi Corazon!

We lay there in each others arms
Looking up at a clear night sky
The twilight glimmered ever so softly
And a shooting star blazed across the sky
I kissed her and she kissed me.
I whispered in her, "My love forever"
And she pushed me back upon the sheets
and we made sweet and ever lasting love again.
As we looked in each other's almond colored eyes.
I said to her, in a soft voice, Mi Corazon.

A Child's Dream Come True

As the sunsets at the end of the day,
And the night begins to fall,
So, does all the dreams of all the little children,
In their own wonderlands of their own,
Wishing and thinking of great things to come,
Hoping their parents will make these dreams come alive,
Cause dreams to children should become bright and gleam,
And all to them more than just alive,
All children want is hopes and dreams to become true,
But if you can teach them how to work hard at them,
They too can make their dreams become their own reality,
For any one person works hard enough,
At what they want in life,
They can have any one thing they want,
All they have to do is work really hard to make it real,
For believers can believe in themselves,
And strive to work toward making their own goals,
Their very own come true,
Which gives more satisfaction in life,
Than things being handed to you,
So always strive for the best,
And all your wishes and dreams can come true,
In your life if you want them too.

My sweetest dream has always been to be 
Lying by you as calm as love can be.

Love can be so calm when by me you lie
And prove truly you dread to hear a lie.

A lie cannot be heard if you can tell
The truth of past secrets I cannot tell.

Secrets I cannot tell because you did
Not care to know how much for you I did.

I did for you all silence does for love
In hope and prayer that you be my love.

My love so hailed in sanctity of heart
Now speaks out loud to woo your sublime heart.

Your sublime heart once strained to seek redress
I opt to spend ink and blood to redress.

To redress such strains binds me to be chaste 
And plain to you who needs one who is chaste.

Be chaste my Love that I may find no fault 
In you to coax me defile my pure fault.

My pure fault is just selfish ends in dream 
To lie by your calm as my sweetest dream.

Daydream Love

You are simply a work of art.
I’ve known it from the very start, 
But you won’t find me hittin’ on ya.

For I’m just an old guy 
With a twinkle in his eye;
Happy just to gaze upon ya.

My old heart quickens it pace
Each time I see your pretty face,
A face that every man should see.

Sometimes, just for a while,
Each time I see you smile,
I imagine it's just for me.

And, when I hear your voice,
For just a moment, I rejoice.
Yes, it’s music to these old ears.

But more than a work of art,
You’re warm and funny and smart.
Simply a beautiful person, my dear.

Though with you I’m quite smitten,
My words are respectfully written;
And every word is  true.

But, if I weren’t so old,
If I were better looking and a little bold,
I would simply say, “I love you.”

A Dream

Perhaps she dreams of love to come
A pose of beauty unsurpassed
Here in the shadows silent calm
White hands rest so gently clasped.

A pose of beauty unsurpassed
Her flowing hair conceals an envied sleep
White hands rest so gently clasped
Dreams confined are hers to keep

Her flowing hair conceals an envied sleep
Here in the shadows silent calm
Dreams confined are hers to keep
Perhaps she dreams of love to come

Love's dance

Sweep[ me off my feet
Walk me to the dance floor
Slide your hands on my arms
Shake me to my very core
Twirl me out bring me in
Hold me from the back
As we sway and we groove
Passion neither of us lack
Dip me so smoothly
As you kiss my neck
Pull me back up
My heart i must check
I crave you so much
Even from our very first glance
Fall into forever with me
As we indulge in love's dance

With You

Because of the person you are
My heart shall rest upon a star

Of the beauty that my eyes see
There is a dream in front of me

Of this lady that I adore
Another dream I can explore

Regardless of what I may be
So lucky am I to have thee

My heart it is a ball of flame
Burning bright the light of your name

Sweetheart you know my heart is true
I’m so proud to be bound by you

Bound by you and the arms of fate
Lets close the doors and lock the gate

Find that place only we can be
Share the dream only we can see

Let us let the world pass us by
Spread our wings and caress the sky

Sail right through a billowy cloud
As our song is sung clear and loud

I’m but a vessel lost at sea
Sailing your heart eternally 

My friend, wife and child’s mother
For me there could be no other

Why is my course forever true?
I gave my heart and soul to you

Mind and Sound

Only light can penetrate the 
that resides in the default state 
of mind
I descend from beta to delta 
binaural beats; instantly caught 
between frequencies beyond 

I absorb amplitudes of acoustic 
and I learn to just be earth 
Since I am the earth 
and because I am of
the one that is the source of its 
I've owned the power of 

I realize now that I AM because
HE is since I am from that, a 
Created in the image of a 
and a feeling from the 
Universal Mind
I tune in to this vibration from 
pulse that manipulates 
subconscious minds

Immersed  between 4 and 7 
brainwaves halt to a conscious 
All  chakras are aligned shining 
crown energy 
and now my consciousness 
begins to reap! 
and light begins to penetrate 
the harmonious beams
that were already there
constant and always there 

is now flooded with sound 
that force brainwaves to submit 
to power
of omnipresent sound that 
always was 
and always will be connected to 
the Source from which I came
so I extend exponentially 
physical time and space

I long to embrace the intensity 
of gamma rays
I give way to the coded sounds 
that resonate from the inner 
and continue to connect 
through the binaural beats that 
remind me of before

Always familiar but ignored
until found by gaining 
knowledge of self
I listen with the intent to excel 
while reaping an abundance of 
benefits and rewards
It's already yours

Just reach out and grab it 
as long as intention and ego is 
the universe will correspond 
it will deliver a life to you divine 
and orderly
Just listen to the sounds that 
were there from before
They will guide to to the 
vibration from the core
and it will guide you to connect 
directly with the source

I Would Write You A Love Letter, 

but there's not enough paper 
to write down everything wonderful about you-- 
the way you laugh, talk, smile
the way you do those little things 
that make me so crazy about you. 

I Would Write You A Love Letter, 

but there aren't enough pencils 
or pens or ink to put down 
how you make me feel-- 
how you make my heart beat faster 
and my breath catch whenever we're close, 
how you stay with me although your so far
like a love song I can't get out of my head. 

I Would Write You A Love Letter, 

but there aren't enough hours 
or day or lifetimes 
to describe all you mean to me-- 
the way you've changed my world 
and made me dream things 
I never dared to dream before. 

I Would Write You A Love Letter, 

but I can't 
Im to busy loving you

Broken Dreams

  Do you believe in the things that you've always known,
Can you understand the things you've been shown.
   Is it the visions you see that make you believe,
Or is the feelings you get when you've been deceived.
    The pain you feel a never ending ache ,
Tearing your heart and soul from you every day.
    Time ticks slowly pounding away at you,
Throbbing heart breaking and there's you can do,
    Must I settle for these lost and broken dreams,
Because it has all the signs that what it seems.
    How much should a man endure to find his way,
It cant possibly be like this hard for me every day.
    There is nothing so frustrating as being so confused,
Especially when you've discovered that you've been used.
    I will get through this lonely phase I have no doubts,
But I'm sure there will come a day I'll figure it all out.
    Cautiously I walk the path that's been laid before me,
In faith I will continue for I know he will let me see.
    Life will be thrown at you in so many different ways,
I will be prepared for these things for the rest of my days.
    Broken dreams will be the learning tree for me to grow ,
Living my life with Joy Happiness is what I'll always Know.

I remember a time I saw you smile
And I stopped and looked
Even stared for awhile
Cause you just have that way with me
Especially when there's a band
I hate to admit, but it's true 
I'm putty in your hands

So let's hit the floor and dance away
When we are all done 
Now will be yesterday
And ole Frank would be real proud
Girl, my feet are off the ground
This must be love, yeah.. It's love
'Cause my head is in the clouds
I'm in the clouds...
This must be love, yeah.. It's love!

Hold Me For A Moment

You held me for a moment
For just a moment it would seem
It seems like forever ago
Although I could never remember
Remember those warm-filled months
Between March and November
November was the end
The end and a new beginning
Beginning of a new season
A season such as Spring
As Spring would bring new life into the world
A world with unreasonable sin
A sin as lifeless as Autumn
(Autumn to some called Fall)
Fall, when he would fall
A fallen angel,
An angel gained
Or gaining a loss?
The loss of a day,
The loss of a life
A life that would end as the day turns to night
The night always dark
The dark calls for closed eyes
Eyes that await the promise of a sunrise
And so the sun would rise
But some still remain asleep
A deep sleep they will not wake
Wake me up from this dream
Dreams of an untold story
A story was cut short
Shortness of a heartbeat
A heart with no beat
Better count your blessings
Blessed life-long lessons
Not to lessen the longing
But I still belong to him
He smiles upon me all day all night
The night, I am used to days without light
A light grip, a solid hold
Hold me so that I don't fear no end
End this yearning, hold me for a moment again

Best Friend

I remember the very first time I saw you,
You wiped the sweat off your forehead,
I remember what all I use to say to you,
Followed my heart, I love you,
Maybe I needed to guard what I say,
Or express it in another way,
I hope I did you no harm,
Or is that what you call destiny,
Please know in your heart,
Eventhough how things played out,
My life and all its' worth,
Worth calling existing - living,
And without ever crossing paths,
My life would have been blah,
Words can not express how I feel about you,
Celebrate our love, if nothing more ever than be my best friend,
You are my very breath and hope of hearing from and possibly seeing you,
The very reason I make it through another day,
Our love we will celebrate far and away,
But in my heart, you are right here with me today,
I love you friend,
You make this world and all it contains worth living,
My heart smiles when it thinks of you,
I will somehow express my heart before I leave this earth,
So much I want to say,
I don't want to complicate things,
I just want you to be healthy, happy and carefree,
I know you love me,
You don't have to say it like I so often do,
I knew day one, 
When I became good friends to you!
I love you, boo!
I do!
Best of luck,
Live like you were dying!

Oblivion mind,
wandering in thoughts.
Idiotic smile,
promises and hopes.
Hand in hand,
tumbling on slopes.
This is love

Running away from this world.
Warm bodies sliding in sheets,
to find another world.
Burning in cold flames.
No fear ... no shame ... no games
This is love

Who Am I

A new photograph floats to the surface
Playfully dressing up as the world around me
Hat, striped socks and all
Tiptoeing at the top for one last sweet moment 
Before sinking back into my ocean mind.

One after another they arrive
Single file,
Steeping my eyes in the world 
As the minds shutter, ever fluttering 
Strings together this conscious stream I play in.

My photographs fade in time’s wrinkled arms.
Joining their brothers and sisters at the ocean floor,
They hold hands and try to answer the question that is always asking itself:
Who am I?

A Shady Tree

I know its the summer time because of how naturally 
Your beauty compliments the caress of a summer breeze
As I watch the world from beneath a shady tree
I take in the delightful comfort of everything I see
But in the same breath I am holding up my hands
Lord will you please give me back the things I no longer have
They are even more a part of me now that they are gone 
As the sun falls below where the horizon is still holding on
Somewhere between the falling light and a star lit night
Is a dream that last forever and will never say goodbye
As the wind gently blows through the brush and shakes the leaves
It begins to hum a melody that I want to sing
At that very moment I smile for all the joy I have
Its so uplifting for me to see melancholy dance
Soon the morning sun will rise and capture my eyes
As I watch the hand of God paint a brand new sky
With every stroke of color I swallow all my pride
And I find a new place to dream of endless times
If I should ever get to the place I left my broken heart
Only then will I believe this brand new day will start
Again Im reminded of why my heart beats so restlessly
Only the speed of thought and my soul beneath this tree

Curled In Grandmother's Arms

As I lay curled in grandmother’s arms;
dreaming intently of butterflies fluttering.
Scented fields bestowing pungent charms; 
where I envision honey bee wings a puttering.

Dreaming intently of butterflies fluttering;
weaving amid long blades of green grass.
Where I envision honey bee wings a puttering;
in the soft breeze that blows abruptly pass.  

Weaving amid long blades of green grass;
I stalk a lumbering caterpillar marching by.
In the soft breeze that blows abruptly pass;
suddenly I am aroused by a doting sigh. 

I stalk a lumbering caterpillar marching by;
scented fields bestowing pungent charms. 
Suddenly I am aroused by a doting sigh;    
as I lay curled in grandmother’s arms.

Heaven and Hell

You were just a fairy tale
a dream that sometimes felt so real
a secret I kept safely locked away
You were there and I was here
and never would I ever dare
that is until one very crazy day
Then all at once it hit me
like nothing else I've ever known
I have tried to calm this storm
but since then it has grown
and I have tried to tame this beast
but I've been overthrown
and know I'm ready to admit
what I have always known
You're a dream that's oh so real
and I love how you make me feel
and this feels something like a dream come true
I could never stay away from you

Caught between Heaven and Hell
I've been captured by your spell
please show me all the magic you can make
And when my body cries for you
there is nothing I won't do
and what you want to give me I will take
Since this whole thing started
you haven't seen the tears I've cried
but I know you've seen me tremble
and you know how hard I've tried
You've watched me struggle with myself
then try to run and hide
You've watched me come right back again
and swallow all my pride
I've been weak more times than strong
but whether this is right or wrong
you must know the same thing that I do
I could never walk away from you

I don't know where this will go
and I don't really need to know
I just know I need you close to me
You said you'd always be my friend
and I will trust you to the end
but don't forget you are my fantasy
I'm so wrapped up in desire
sometimes it takes my breath away
sometimes it seems so many things
are standing in our way
and sometimes I can't tell you
all the things I need to say
but then you take me in your arms
and everything's okay
With your love I am set free
you know you mean the world to me
and I would go through Hell to be with you
because I am in Heaven when I do

The Beach of Promises

The Beach of Promises


Fingers entwined, barely touching,
turquoise waters teasing your dancing toes,

strolling along that serene deserted beach,
our promised dreams within aching reach.


Hands clasped, holding on,
sea-breezes tickling the nape of your neck,

walking together, alone, vowing to never breach,
the dreams dreamed on that faraway velvet beach.


Hands in my pockets, alone,
traces of you linger, teasing,

lost in my scribbles, your memory fading out of reach,

my thoughts ablaze, now and then,
catching a whiff of your fragrance,

wafting through alleyways of nostalgia,
your hand in mine on our pristine beach.

I am God's child, first and forever
I am known by many different titles, a daughter
I am a wife
I am a mother
I am a grandmother
I am a poet
I am by several ways, known as a sister
I am an acquaintance
I am a loyal friend
I am a stranger
I am a cousin
I am an Auntie
I am a niece
But who is this person, they all call "Denise?"

She is a child to God
She is a niece

She is a loyal friend
She is an acquaintance
She is known to many, a sister
She is a poet
She is a grandmother
She is a mother
She is a wife
She is known as a daughter to many
She is everything, she'd ever dreamed her life to be....
She is happier than she ever imagined possible

Dreaming Into The Day

He used to look at me straight into my gloomy eyes, In his sweet words and kisses and in his lovely arms I felt so nice; We were filled with gladness, with promises and future plans, Until I’ve found out that he’s a sky and I’m just a piece of land. He is a sun who’s shining brightly into the limelight, While I’m a little star aspiring to shine both day and night; He’s a prince who cannot eat without his golden spoon While I use pottery in yeoman’s house who is forlorn. How can a lard coagulate with water? If lightning strikes as prominent as the roar of thunder? How can it be the two of us if there are many barriers? I’m crying inside and I need prayers to become stronger. Everything about you will all remain in my dreams, Those promises of you, I’ll sing always in my mind as hymns; I want to blame myself in possession of this loving heart, Which little by little is killing me in suffocation all throughout.

Brown Eyes

Brown eyes that matched her hair
Sad and unhappy as she stood there
Waiting for her love to return, maybe yes
maybe never, only time will tell
Such sad brown eyes that matched her hair
Tied from behind in the most romantic way
Head slightly tilted gazing down in despair
Looking, but not looking staring into space
Memories, dancing inside her head
As she spoke silently “He promised to return” 
Talking to herself said… “I had to believe
What am I to do this is just my grief”
Time is just a lie man invented it to be wise
When two lovers are together
It doesn’t need Einstein.
He gave such a wonderful love
Love only known to a lonely heart
For what is life if not with him, I prefer to die.
Fool I am to think he will return
He’s been gone so long maybe minutes
maybe days.

My Avocado

My fruit from the tree of love/ 
Branches of sweetness with no bravado our future’s fragrance is bravo/ 
I have no words without your rubbery skin and smooth lips/ 
I dished up smiles before your visit with no limits/ 
Though you grew in the woods/ 

Allow me to welcome you in my hood/
Life is drying up and dying rough/
Hunters peel any moving dressed up skins it’s no bluff/  
Ship from your town to my township and that’s a tip/
Your fleshy vivid body sparkles predictable smiles and love from a distance trip/ 

Your body I would climb if you let me/ 
Your brunches I would massage if you let me/ 
I dream to seed your womb with vigorous multiple fruits till eternity/ 
I dream to rescue you from discarded cuddles and refrigerators/ 
Your cold days will be warm in my arms/ 

My avocado this is my shameless affectionate avow/
My heart holds no snakes, monkeys, scratchy cats, lizards or mythical wizards/ 
My tongue your shower/ 
My lips your perfume/ 
Your tears I will screen clean till they’re embittered no more/
And that’s a promise with a sexy salad/

I've come to this place
Can you see me here
I whisper your name
And try to fight the fear
Words can't describe
How much I want you near

Cause it's you
I adore
Only for you
I'm an open door
Yes, it's you
Dreaming for the day
Only you
It's you

Beautiful.. evening breeze in your hair
Beautiful.. the stars in heaven declare
Beautiful.. girl, you're one of a kind
Beautiful.. one day you'll be mine

Cause it's you
I adore
Only for you
I'm an open door
Yes, it's you
Dreaming for the day
Only you

A Simple Kiss

A simple kiss will tell if you might love me.
A simple kiss will tell how much I care.
Yes, our lips will reveal 
Exactly how we feel;
So, kiss me…if you dare.

A simple kiss…it’s so very easy,
A simple kiss that only two can share;
But that kiss may be a chance
To find life’s true romance;
So, kiss me…kiss me… if you dare.

My heart began to race
When first I saw your face,
A face I had to dream to see;

Compelled to take this chance,
I dared to ask you for this dance,
And now, you're here... with me.

So, a simple kiss will tell if you might love me.
Surely, you have a kiss to spare.
If you ever hoped for a chance
To find your life’s true romance,
Then, kiss me…Please kiss me… 
Kiss me…if you dare.

A Daydream

My fingertips lightly travel
down these worn piano keys,
the memories now unravel
as I hear your favorite melodies.

I reminisce within my writing
about a time that used to be,
when your arms were so inviting
and they would hold only me.

The quiet whispers on the breeze
the first kisses that were soft,
we sat underneath the willow trees,
as my heart then sailed aloft.

I can still smell the roses, red
their petals pressed upon the page,
where your old promises lie dead
they have not withered with age.

I am daydreaming of the past
when our love seemed to be true,
a relationship that will not last
but, back then we never knew.

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

        WET DREAMS
I know not why your love's evading me
nor what to do, so that your heart can see,
my passion grows no matter what I do
and makes my heart to keep on loving you
though all it's brought is pure insanity;

in dreams I've wept, but kept on loving you
and tears, they flow, no matter what I do,
I tried to take my burning love in hand
but it's a thing my heart can't understand,
and sleep won't tell what love is coming to;

if I could dream the dream both night and day
I'd spend my life just sleeping where I lay
and waking from the dream in burning sweat,
I lie content, and feel my hand is wet
from love you've given me, in your own way.

I had a plain pet rock 
Before it was a fad
I longed for a puppy
Wasn't allowed by dad
So I'd just pretend 
It was my shaggy dog
We'd go on walks
And jump over logs
We'd lay in the grass
And take in the rays
Me and my pet rock
On summer dog days
When school started
I'd take him with me
Kept in my pocket
No one could see
This boy had a dream
Now it's come true
Me and my son
Have a dog named Blue

My Heart

I took a nap ignoring the silent whispers,
The whispers woke me up from the continuous bickering,
How easy it was to lie and pretend taking a nap,
With every lie my nose got longer and my heart felt heavy,
I was told I am Pinocchio and if I lie I will have a longer nose,
I was lying to myself and looked away from how it felt to only love,
To only love and love where the feelings felt beautiful,
Not expecting anything but just that love for you which slithers through my entire system,
When I accepted that I can’t stop loving you,
I awoke with a perfect nose and my heart was still heavy,
But this time it’s heavy with unconditional love,
Let love lose and stop suppressing it said my heart…
Who wants a long nose!

Details | Lyric | |


I don't have the words
To say how I feel
And language won't do
To describe what is real
God give me a voice 
So that I can explain
I need a song, with 
A compelling refrain

Waiting.. For words that soar
Longing.. For so much more
Praying.. That God might see
Needing.. You to be with me

I need you
I need you
I need you
Need you!

I Smell a Rose

I smell a rose,
Walking down a country road,
Where it goes, I don’t know,
But I smell a rose.

It’s getting dark, and I’m far from the start,
But nowhere near the end, aloneness is usually something I would fear,
But not here. 
I cannot see.
I cannot hear.
Honestly, I do not know how I got here,
A dreamer lost in the night,
Searching for hope,
Looking for a light, but no matter how far I go…
I smell a rose.

Fair Memory

   I see you fair in memory’s sweet abode 
   ‘tis truly there with you I long to be 
   To touch again ‘fore daydream walls erode 
   Thy lips of red, o passion, mine to thee 
   In passion do I feel the tempest rise 
   Rise to meet the moonlight’s sweet caress 
   To see myself in love there in your eyes 
   And in thy garden dare to find me rest 
   O damn the world that holds this body bound 
   N’er content, my spirit yearns to search the wind 
   ‘tis there in sweet repose my love is found 
   And there I long to be with you again 
   For in fair memory’s eye no care there be 
   And to thy heart, mine own, I’d give to thee

Dreams Unseen

The waking world leaves me ne’r content
My sweet if there’s no place for you and I
To find ourselves, to love and ne’r repent
To live, to love, to dream, and then to die

Beneath the sky above this dreamful sleep
I’ll find you there in hope or passions eye
And pray you seek me well and find me deep
Your heart content to love one such as I

But if you find me not in slumbers womb
And passions flame has not the chance to light
Forget me not or to my early tomb
This heart will surely break and rend the night

Yet, sleep you well, my love my timeless muse
And wait anon ’til morrow’s dreams pursue

Well how do you feel

In high school everything changes
Teachers, friends, you, 
“That’s just life” they say,
And they never stop to ask
“Well, how do you feel?”

And your friends leave, and your grades decrease,
And your teachers begin to worry,
And they make you see a shrink,
But they never stop to ask,
“Well, how do you feel?”

The sky starts to crumble,
And the tears begin to fall,
And music and hoodies become your best friends,
And they never stop to ask,
“Well, how do you feel?”

And the tools come out.
And the objects fall apart,
And you reach for the closest one,
And the ask, finally,
“Well, how do you feel?”

But by now it’s too late.
Your time is up, your blood’s run out,
Your scars show for the world to see,
Cause they asked too late,
“Well, how do you feel?”

“She was so young” they all say,
But really you were old.
You’d seen so much and hurt so much,
It was time for you to go.

So you picked up the pills and washed them down
And grabbed the blades and cut
And when they finally noticed you weren’t around
It was too late you were gone.

They found your letter on the bed
And read it out at school
“You asked to late, but I don’t blame you.”
And your friends were moved to tears. 

In your tree house in the yard
They found you pale as snow
Your eyes closed, a smile on your face
And they realized you were gone.

They roll up your sleeves and roll up your pants
And scream at what they see
Lines, and lines, and lines of cuts
Some healed and some not.

And they realized they should have asked in the beginning
How you felt that is, cause, 
Honestly you didn’t, 
You didn’t feel anything at all.

Love is a wonder shared by one another it's the only reason I'm not six feet under Love in which I believe in a will to sustain I give back to life, now in dormant states of pain The power of Love may not alone be enough locked inside my dreams escape only from above higher than any human being has ever gone before I must have evolved rise above hate, great once more My Father taught me wisdom I am imprisoned no longer now an beast not of burden I am no lion, I am stronger on my shoulder sits twin dragons long awaiting the day evil forces come forth to take what Love is left, away A Hero of Love light are what the world needs angels, not demons exist where ever you believe follow your heart's direction and you shall achieve objects of affection rid of materialistic greed My bright energy has awakened to a fire never consuming the source as the flames just grow higher that is the desire of a product we call Love Fear, the counterpart what I was once made of I am slowly learning how to win when my peace is harder to sharpen so I have given my pen leave the sword has its uses I must say I believe to vanquish the evil in the minds too diseased to serve any purpose except their own selfish ones tomorrow a new day in the clarity of the sun where we two are now one and one done now does bring about a great change lit by the righteousness of Love.

Flowers Heal Our Pains

Flowers heal our pains 
Not in all seasons 
Only if spring sustains 
Flowers heal our pains
And grow up when love rains 
For no reasons 
Flowers heal our pains
Not in all seasons!

An art by heart

The moonbeams of the 
silver night
Flows and sweetly kisses the 
In the blue sky all-stars look 
so bright
I can't stop thinking you, oh 
my dearest.

The winds bring the soft 
aroma of the belly flower
I am standing as a lonely 
field near to my window
And see a couple of glow-
worm flying together
Ah! This every sweet thing 
carries me to you.

Suddenly in my thoughts at 
a sane island
Oh beloved! I see we both 
are so close
Sharing an eternal love by 
holding each other hand
From eyes to eyes, lips to 
lips, nose to nose.

There we are in spiritual 
love and a sacred pair
As in painting light and 
shade looks pretty together.

It's not a lesson to be taught
Or a skill to be acquired
It's the nudge to move forward
Open when the time is right
It's the spirit inside
God leading on the way
On the journey to discover
He is all you need
It's the courage to let go
Say yes instead of no
Reveal what you've been holding back
As Jesus takes the wheel
It's the realization that it doesn't matter
What others think of you
God leads you where you're meant to be
Just allow you to be you
It's the standing up to fear
Proclaiming "fear's not gonna win!"
The battle has been fought too long
Time to let the stalemate end
It's the inspiration you've been holding
For others and for yourself
The light we've been dimming
Rather than shining on His behalf
It's the spontaneity in the decision
To follow His call all the way
Discovering peace in being you
Wide open as the perfect creation you are
The world out there is brutal
But there's a Holy Man holding out His Hand
His bravery now is all we have
But His bravery of love is all we need
May God bless you!

A Farmer's Eyes and a Sailor's Shadow

A thorough yield
On a farm field of far east
It took me time to realize
How far I am to my far east of coast

Call of my weather
Call of my winds
I sailed further and farther
To my naked coasts
Naive songs, Nimble rains
Nile of rivers, Nascent clouds

Reaching this far
I kissed my earth
Ground of my grief
Glory of my ghosts
Glad is those leaves
However scanty they are

Cast is my shadows
No longer they hide
My colors and my figures
They cast numbers on stars
Measure their light
Scope my winters
Scale my summers
Scanty my rains
Scuttle I wish my springs

Now let me see my greens
Their leveling heights
Their leafy gaze
Their spiderly gesture
Their primordial texture
Now let me be slow
In company of my greens

A Dream

I see you in the setting sun
night dawns, and day is done
In these fleeting moments
before it all turns to gray
A rainbow sky explosion
you can't keep me away

For now this is the place for us
time to connect goes by so fast
Perhaps the beauty in the moment
will birth a love that forever last

I see you in the rising blue
day dawns, the night is through
In these fleeting moments
enough light to see you care
Even though you're far away
I still see you everywhere

For now this is the place for us
time to connect goes by so fast
Perhaps the beauty in the moment
will birth a love that forever last

Oh.. sometime and somewhere
together we'll chase the Promise Land
No goodbyes in the day and night 
I'll be your girl, you'll be my man

You Alone

Look at you, you have found my heart
With love I stare into your eyes
With passion I devise
I can not part with you or can not stop the things I have started

So I raise my hands to embrace you and you alone

Look I walk by your side and I found my self crying
With your hands so soft with gentleness
With your smile so beautiful with carefulness
I do notice life with you without sighing

So I raise my hands to embrace you and you alone

Without a fear of losing you, you are in my visions
With beautiful roses by your side 
I love you more than twelve times
Without doubt I do love you, I care for you and you alone

So do not walk away 
Please lets talk about things anyway
With feelings of letting you go is make me ache in the heart
Do not stop believing my passion has fallen apart

So I raise my hands to embrace you and you alone

Look I want us to grow old with each other through years of journeys
With hope of sharing life of fulfillment that gives us memories
With this I hope to give all of my faith and I hope it is not to late
I Look into your eyes with such full life because you have been my life date

So I raise my hands to embrace you and you alone

And you alone

So I raise my hands to embrace you

you alone

The Perfect Woman

 Since I was a boy I have known of her . I've dreamed of her in my fantasies , I have visioned you in my thoughts.Never knowing why or how or 

where she came from, Just she was there .Not ever did I see her face ,but I've known all the while of her beautiful smile. Eyes of an Angel , I can  

see all the way to her soul. Hair that flows over her shoulders like a waterfall.  . Just a dream in my head , my imagination gone wild , but I have 

always known she would be mine one day , A goddess  I will cherrish as my Queen and love her with all my heart. Spoil her with gifts and 

treasures, what ever she likes .The girl of my dreams I have honestly seen .I have spoken to her  and it is exactly as it was suppose to be . She's in 

love with me. Oh and she is the prettiest thing, this woman thats always been in my dreams .I was put here to meet her and she to meet me . I have 

always been in her dreams ,that's what she's been telling me . A match made in Heaven is what she claims, a love forever , a happiness for life , a 

Joy in our hearts that makes our lives worth living. Every since I was a boy I have known her. This woman of my dreams.

Eternal Hope

Eternal Hope You speak with your eyes and I hear with my heart. They tell of a love that never can start. But, somewhere deep, inside of me, This feeling will live through eternity. So, if Walter Mitty, I must be Then, that will have to satisfy me. Note: In Walter Mitty's daydreams he imagines himself to be heroic. That seems to be the common denominator throughout the tale by James Thurber. Written by John Posey 11/03/13

Sometimes Dreams Do Come True

If my dream could come true
I'd want to love someone exactly like you
In life it's so hard to find the right one.
But based on what I've heard and seen 
No matter what you'd do.  
I would love only you.
If my dream could come true,
There would be no problems.
Life would always be rosy.
We would travel the whole world over. Then
We would find a home and make it into a paradise for two.
We would have romance.
We would have passion.
There would be no secrets if my dream could come true.
If my dream could come true.
YES...If my dream could come true.
I'd want to love someone exactly like you!

The Birds, They Were So Silent

 The Birds, They  Were So Silent

I raced away early one bright morn,
running in clouds so very fleet
The birds, they  were so silent
deathly stiff on a frozen icy sheet

Crossing bridge to glimmering lake
no worries, time was on my side
My charms would do me right
in this was my everlasting pride 

I will find my lover's heart 
bruised and battered it may be
As sure as life is a sweet fountain
my words shall bring her again unto me

I'll kiss her hands and her pretty feet
she will sway into my loving arms
A vision of pure heavenly delight
again falling for my arrogant charms

Our lives now by guile reunited
time will flow like a raging flood
The Love of My Lusts,
shall live and eat in my blood

Summers shall be our playtime
winters for hot steaming nights
Time will yield to my magic
as my love sees wonderous sights

In the depths of this dream
she shall obey my hot desires
As I step from the dark shadows
to set ablaze her deepest fires

No heartaches , no terrible worries
life and love sets its steady pace
No tears shall ever fall across
the beauty of her loving face

Dancing into my long aching arms
into this sweet dream she shall dwell
No harm will I allow to visit her 
as I seal shut the dark Gates of Hell

She will love me all the more
as we step into another golden realm
Sea shall envy her growing beauty
as I sail this ship steady at the helm

The ages crack into this deep mirror
joys are now so viciously denied
She now doubts my deep, slavish love
as my jealousy exposes my darkest pride

When time brings in its destroyer
love may stop cold in its track
I am but a love lost dreamer
thrown down upon my broken back

Yet again look into my heart's mirror
the dream I made come alive for you
There is such goodness in this fantasy
you my life, your love governs all I do

I stand at this scary precipice
your hand is my greatest want
Love sends its everlasting glory
except when it mercilessly don't

You my darling hold the lasting key
late in this dream time stands still
My desires are as shallow nothings
measured against your true loving will

I raced away early one bright morn,
running in clouds so very fleet
The birds, they were so silent
deathly stiff on a frozen icy sheet

Dream You

When I saw you standing at my door that night
I didn’t know what to think, or say, or do
I just stood there in awe and adornment

You smiled at me and I tried not to blush
I tried not to reveal my true feelings
I hoped you wouldn’t see that I wanted you

You read my face; you saw my heart; you knew
Before I could turn away you came to me
You took my hand and stopped me from running

Your lips met mine and in that perfect moment 
The entire Universe was frozen
Everything else disappeared as we united

You were perfect; I was perfect, we were
We were both perfectly connected and
My life was yours; your life was mine; our life

In that one kiss my whole life flashed before me
Joy, excitement, passion, thrill, happiness, Love
All emotions swirling around in my head 

And then I woke up holding my pillow; 
I guess I didn’t know it was a dream.

I Want A Farmer Boy

Many little girls dream about a prince coming to their tower to save them from trouble, 
Called their mother, 
Or a knight in shining armor to take away their bother, 
Called their father, 
But not I 
I dream about a farmer boy, 
One who bales hay from sun up to sun down, 
Feeds the pigs, even with a frown

I don’t want a prince with gold, 
A knight with armor, 
I want a farmer boy

I want a man who will treat me right, 
Not one who thinks he knows more than I, 
I do not want a prince who will buy me what I want and them leave me be, 
I do not want a knight, who will always leave me, 
I want a man who will hold me tight and tell me he loves me 
Before he says goodnight

I don’t want a prince with gold, 
A knight with armor, 
I want a farmer boy

I don’t want a man who will rule over me, 
Or one who will always leave me be, 
I want a man who will treat me right and hold me tight, 
A man who will hold me as his equal, 

I don’t want a prince with gold, 
A knight with armor, 
I want a farmer boy

A man who says I love you 
Every chance he gets

Many little girls dream about a prince coming to take them away from trouble, 
Called their mother, 
Or a knight coming to take away their bother, 
Called their father
I want a farmer boy.

I thought I felt the warmth of your heart
gentle and charming 

You stand before me like a thought,
a dream remembered in a dream

I want you to think of me as we 
are sometimes miles apart 

Without you my world is a 
dark place in time

I want you to remember secrets 
whispered in your ear, and smile 

You are the sunshine of my day
a star that is always bright

I have loved you more with 
each passing day

What I'd give to wake up 
beside you each sunrise 

I love you completely  with 
my heart, mind, and soul 
As you remember me, smile 
with peace in your heart 

You are my favorite  dream  
that has become my reality

In the dim nigh' ligh'
I close my eyes before bed
And I think about tomorrow
But mostly about you.

As I think of stars
I fall to pieces
Because I know
The consequences of being called a shooting star.

Down in deep sleep
I weep uncontrollably
Because I see my dreams
Vanish like vapour before me.

But when the morning sound soun's
I believe again
That in this day
My dreams will come true.

Watching you
Falling asleep's like
Watching day break
And stars fade
Into early dawn gray
It's as soft as the sunset
Sure as the rising sun

So sleep well
Dear i'll be here in the morning
I see those tired eyes closing
Have sweet dreams, my love
My dear

"Ohhhh Rain..Shower again!!!!! "  

Showering in the rain, 
Draining the pain!
Enflueraging the essence of arenicolous sand,
Feeling blessed porting on this beautiful greenary land! Trees were roaming 
under fiercing winds,
Thanks nature for benevolently so kind!
Sip of sizzling coffee With Caramalized sugar,
Cheers hubby to accompany me my gelling agar!
Wanna capture this Driplets of aromatic water nearby lake,
So that I can make an icy snowflake!
That's amazing, "but ohhhh God,  I wish my honey is here".

My Heart asks you

A day is a nice day when you touched my heart and smile.
A day is a sad day when you walked distance me a mile.
I work double when you inspired me I got strength,
I finish my day so quicker that was the hardest length,
I float to touch the moon when you read the chapter of my file.
When you disappeared I seen you through my vision of darkness,
I touched my lips and find nearest you where delivered me a kiss,
I lost me for a while and gone through my dreams to life compile.
I walked in my sleep in loneliness you guide me as a fairy queen,
When I touched my body I felt you that has changed my living style.
Few of them thinks no soul is in our body who nested my thought,
Who seeds ideas to fragrant dreams in the mind of my heart pot.
Something is wrong, I start to care me; you changed my attitude,
I saw my face in the mirror, my heart asks you, am i nice not rude?

Glisten in the Moonlight

Your glorious emerald eyes 
Glisten in the moonlight 
Glisten in the moonlight 
Delight dances in the water
I watch it joyfully
You are set free from the cage...
You're like a dove soaring in the sky
You are the rain...
drizzling down in ecstasy 
A hint of ecstasy is shown in your reflection...
When you caress me... I'm relieved... 
From the stress that forced me in chains
I knew we'd be on the brighter side of tomorrow 
We're glistening in the moonlight 
I knew we'd become candles in the heavens above us
We're glistening in the moonlight
For a moment, I felt your presence...your radiant with sympathy 
I saw at first glance the dark side of you
Tonight, we'll be together and fly through the horizon 
We'll watch the sunset say its last goodbye...
We'll wave a greeting at the moon! 
We glisten in the moonlight...
What if I was as handsome as the lion...
Roaring with pride and pure courage
What if we were glistening in the moonlight?
Would it bring health to our bones tonight?
Would it make our heart rejoice and overflow with delight?
Would we be able to survive this horrifying plight?
Would we be shimmering like a candlelight?
We're glistening in the moonlight... (6)
Ohh...yeah...ooh yeah...ooh yeahh...
We reach to the stars and hope we can trace a shooting star
I feel the coolness run down my fingers...
We're glistening in the moonlight
You're the dandelions in the fields
You're the gorgeous view that I marvel at everyday
When you kiss me, I live my dreams
We glisten in the moonlight
In a quick moment, I sense a feeling of endless renewal 
I roam inside of your illuminating maze 
Glow on... sunshine... 
Glow on...sunshine...
Glisten in the moonlight...
Listen to the truth and rub it in
You are ravishing like the sunset
But you're ascending while I'm descending
I feel extremely guilty
I wish I could glisten with you in the moonlight
You're glistening in the moonlight (6) 
Ohhh yeahh... oohhh yeahh... ohh yeahh
You're glistening in the moonlight (4)
We go our own way
I wish we can glisten like the moon
Glisten like the sun 
There's a dream concealed inside of me...
Reveal your light and pour it upon me
You glisten in the appealing moonlight
While I'm subsiding... you're fulfilling your dreams
Of gliding across the horizon 
You're independence... keeps on scorching with satisfaction
While I'm below you... 
Your emerald green eyes
Stared me down like a hawk...
Your emerald eyes
Gaze down at me genuinely...
I wish we could flee together in reality...
That could be a possibility
To glisten in the moonlight in glee
We were glistening in the moonlight (3)
But that was only a dream...
I'll pray that it turns into a reality
We were glistening in the moonlight 
Now, I've misplaced my delight...
Will I ever experience such a brilliant night?

I once was like a catipiller young,naive,and new
Always living from my heart not knowing what
else to do.Easy to take advantage of, that is 
just the case, people would walk over me
like I was their dirty used up suitcase.
Now I feel a newness coming, like a light
shining from the sky, colors fill my world
and I know I am blooming into a butterfly.
Purple,Pink, Blue and Green I can feel them
flowing through. Colors of the rainbow raising
me into full bloom. Wise and strong I am becoming
My faith leads me where I need to go giving me
insight and wiseness for only me to know.
I have not  done this on my own you see
I have been guided by God and Angels
on this Earth. Wise words the wisdom at
it's best comes from a wise lady who
seems to know me best. Lucky, I am 
to have her in my life, she always shoots
it straight and tells me like it is, knowing
her words touch my heart and gives me tons of faith..
I feel like flying through the sky or climbing 
a tree way up high. I feel like observing the 
world just like a brand new butterfly so as I
Bloom I become Anew something unlike the past
Smart and wise beautiful on the inside and outside 
 a touch of color here a touch of color there
makes me glow and become a beautiful blooming butterfly...

Valentine's need apply

I gave up on you years ago
Felt love in my life had to go
Felt free and strong without care
Never needing wanting another there

Life has changed so much since then
Looking inside I take to pen
Wonder have I grown up yet
To include something more than a pet

Another February comes to be
Alone again hello, just me 
Valentine's day it comes and goes
Will I again receive a rosé? 

Will this be the year I'm ready to see
If someone can share their life with me?

A Love Lost

Caught inside a painting,
A Rembrandt, made of her family's hopes and dreams

Searching for happiness,
Within a two dimensional canvas, little scope there seems

Outside the colours,
Someone captivated by her beauty, hearing her empty screams

Only for the key,
Longing to be outside, he opens the door and beams

Filled with intrepidation,
Beckoning “come outside”, his love for her it teems

She turns away,
For others she must stay, hiding from her dreams.

In the Meadow

And I closed my eyes. 

     In that meadow by the cliff, where a single tree stood, there just a little far away from the cliff, whose roots tightly grip the ground, a boy of about 14 stood. Facing the cloudless sky, eyes mesmerized by its beauty. Not even noticing that i have always, always been looking, watching him here from behind this tree. He took a step forward, and another, one foot after the other, now nearer to the edge with every step.

        The sky has turned its curtains to a beautiful autumn color, showering this mellow meadow a pretty golden color, his pale face catching some of the lights of this shower. His beautiful deep ocean-blue eyes, which are even more romantic than this meadow scenario, are now shut, hiding their beauty. 
Still making his way towards the tip of the cliff, I gathered up every ounce of my courage, got out of my safe haven, and followed him. Advancing quietly, like a shadow is brought to life by that lovely sunshine. Walking, quietly walking, and closing in the gap that has forever separated us.

       The edge. There he stopped. As if he knew that the piece of gravel below him is only enough to support him. As if he noticing and rejecting the voices from the valley below, calling, enticing him to jump and fall into its dark and deep abyss. But there, at the tip, he stopped, and I behind him, heart and mind racing against each other. 
And there behind him, I try to absorb everything there was to absorb: His brown hair, his broad shoulder, tall body, unblemished white skin, his sweet aroma drifting with the gentle breeze, the rhythm of his breathing, and the fact that I was just this small, unnoticeable creature behind him. I was always, always been watching him from behind, only having to get a glimpse of his beautiful, yet sad face once.

        His face. That round face, pointed noise, flawless white skin, and that red lips which might not have laughed nor smiled once. That was the face I saw once when he came to rest at the big tree’s shade, in which, even I, tried to seek its cloak that erase every evidence that I was ever there, that I was even wandering this lonely earth, that there was another being besides him, indulging in the luxury the lovely meadow has to offer.

        There at the tip of the cliff, eyes closed, arms wide open, welcoming the gentle breeze, facing the dark valley below, he just stood there.
        And I open my eyes to the light of reality. The dream forever remembered.

Mother, Forgive Us

I used to walk in dark places and know that I was safe.
Because I knew that I loved you.

I have abused my brothers and sisters.
I have contaminated your purity with murder.
I have raped your daughters.
I have kidnapped your children.
I have brought your blessed bosom to the brink of destruction.

And now, even when I walk in daylight I do not feel safe.
For now I am aware of what I have been to you.
Worse than a prodigal, I have endeavored to exploit the very mother who nurtures me.
And now that I have worsened whatever imbalance was in you before I arrived,
I endeavor to flee you like a coward through the grace of an oblivious savior.

I have dreamed a dream of water.
I have dreamed a dream of living water.
And in this dream Jesus, my Savior, told me that he was not oblivious.
And in this dream Jesus told me that he was fully aware of my crimes against you.

I have dreamed a dream of fire.
I have dreamed a dream of unquenchable fire.
And in this dream Jesus reminded me that I was sent here to heal you as you taught me of manhood.
And in this dream Jesus told me that if I could not love you, my mother, who I could see, then how could I love my Father in heaven who I could not.

I have dreamed a dream of air.
I have dreamed a dream of whirlwinds.
And in this dream I breathed in the breath of forgiveness and I realized that it was not too late for us.

I have dreamed a dream of earth.
And in this dream, Mother Earth, I see you and us together, fighting for our freedom.
Fighting against the delusion that our fates are not eternally intertwined.

Mother earth,
Please forgive us.
For true, we have betrayed you.
But it is not too late.

I promise you that as sure as my savior is in heaven we are going to make it.

I present myself to you as a living witness.
The Lord has not forsaken us.
For within our DNA is the secret to your healing and the end of our insanity.

Thank you for loving and protecting me, even as I raped and wounded you.
And now it is my turn.

“In the name of Jesus, the earth and all of the earth’s inhabitants are one mind, heart, and body.  In the name of Jesus, we are one person, one planet, and one purpose.  In the name of Jesus, the lion will soon lay down with the lamb and this beautiful sound, this sound of the sacred Gaia will know harmony!!”

Warmly Loving

Beautiful dazzling sunshine jewels 
diamond shining each vision wrapped softly 
Warmly glowing in the dark heavens 
entering private chambers a ball

Flickering lights dance as a moon smiles pink 
The strawberry clouds blushing glorious 
smiling full with grace rose petals
touching deeply darling your inner beauty
Alone singing inside this world one dream
kissing warm ocean waves hangs a picture
Behind the structure of your face 
mirror this perfect smiling soul

kissing these eyes in a thousand and one celebrations 
falling golden waves melting spices heart burning
passions salts eats into feelings blending honey devouring desire 
claws grip touching cotton softness embraces true

Out of the dark, you'll hear my whistling,
this night bird searching out the heart of you,
who knows the song is you, and meant to sing,
and I, who feel your words, forever do.

In love am I, with all you'll ever be,
though you don't even count me as a friend,
I come and go, throughout your life, 'tis me,
you'll only know as steady, to your end.

This night bird knows the deep inside your breast,
your secrets never shared with anyone,
each tiny pain, you've thought to be a test,
each answer from each question--Life goes on.

         Out of the dark, you'll feel me spread my wings,
           In love with loving you, and what it brings.

On meeting most beautiful

On meeting most beautiful 
adoring maiden kisses in thoughts
Deeply inhaling one warm 
breath a sip off the finest old grog
auld mountain dew breathing pure
Golden leaves sweetly float dancing twirl
Shining inside vision sweet
walking hand in hand on golden sands
waves unfold a carpet blue 
to white ebbing thoughts pure crashing love
Against the deepest walls warm
soft light silent echoes whisper true 
sweetly melting emotions 
Brewing kisses clouds peach fading out
to shades of grey tuning kiss
Silver treasuring thoughts I love you
peachy beautiful dream gem
dancing petal flowers one red rose
I have visions of you dancing in my
dreams as I sleep most wonderfully
on soft clouds in the azure sky
At times I gaze skyward on days
bright and beautiful seeing your
face in the sky and feeling always
your most wonderful presence
like texture and scent of most 
sensual red rose petals gently
landing on the sweet dew ground
On meeting you most beautiful
maiden my thoughts always turn
most instantly to love and happiness
with my emotions and my soul on
fire in storms of unbridled passion and
pleasure I can only say I love you
forever and forever

Two Hearts full of Love

I am a heart full of love
that shook the pilars that held her colussium up
her heart filled with sorrow,
I swing such fury toward her heart and soul
she cowards away from me,
in fear of falling in love and not knowing what is in black
and not searching what is in the light of pure white.

I am a heart full of love,
she runs and takes the long dirt road,
through the raging mountains of the quiet countryside,
as the meadows of lilacs slowly die when Spring comes,
the blooming of the rose,
like the blooming of my heart,
a blossom on a cherry tree fall and harbour in the wintertime.
I swing toward her, she falls in fear of wanting attention and love.
Lost in the midnight twilight,
the flaming torch guides her through the dark holes of meaningless souls.
and like a frightened hummingbird,
she flees away from the secrets of falling in love.

A heart full of love ready to love,
it is diffcult to feel and to show,
but as if a rose that blooms in Springtime
my love is ready to bloom.

Pettles lay along a darkened atmosphere
lit up only with four wax candles
a portrait of a woman hung over a mantel piece
in honour of my one true love.

As the twilight shine though my bedroom window,
I show a heart full of love,
to take and to hold for eternity.

And as she slowly moves forward,
she takes me home with her,
and opens her chest and shows me her heart
with a glass of red wine and charming cigarette.
She sheads tears of pain and sorrow on my broud shoulder,
I curise her hair, silk laced hair,
shining against the twilight and the moonlit sky.

My heart full of love,
so divine, so original
a one of a kind.

We make love in the midst of the twilight,
as my dream girl is now reality and my pain is no more,
her pain is no more.
Too show such love makes a man feel free
and his soul lighter.
She holds him there,
as the sun rises over the mountains.
The birds sing a tune of cheerfulness,
and they talk about everything beautiful and kind,
that is still left in this cruel and empty hearted world.

Romance and love shared
with a heart full of love,
smile and kiss upon smooth lips,
feel me against your tight body,
and love me till the morning
when Blue eyed Death is staring us in the face.
and we go with him,
and play a game of risk,
and together forever,
onto a diffrent world
we shall love each other forever,
for you and I both have a heart full of love.

The Intensifying love story

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

the love we had seemed so far away

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

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

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

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

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

To Realize

I wake up again, 
Euphoria spreading my sheets, eyelashes fluttering
And then, in reality, I realize...
Ah, it was all a dream...

Floral piano keys...
Instrument perfectly tuned...
Recalling fragments of dream memory...
The tears are heavy now, watering out the potency of my ecstasy..

For a while now, 
He drifts back and forth across my mind
Into my visions, he is always alive,
And I am eternally grateful in that realm...
I had convinced myself...that on the day of his beating, 
Of his grotesque demise, 
I had stood over him and tore open his grave,
And I had cried out in all of my power,
Lifting his lifeless body into my arms
Reconstructing him with all of my soul
Rivers of life returning in his eyes
Heart to heart, igniting in Guardian Love

I revive him, and tell stories to gods of my epic feat
They laugh, clap and cheer, heightened by my determination
Inspired by my stubborn will to die and let live
And as I finger the keys, singing with lungs full of joy,
He would climb onto the piano and play with me
His yellow-green eyes blinking in their dreamy, milky love
His tail swiping away all traces of darkness

I scoop him up, embracing him,
Together, our happiness engorging our souls
His vibrations, his warmth... are all that matter in this realm

As a coping strategy, to escape the endearing tragedy
My subconscious mind has developed the irrational belief...
That I had all control that night, holding him in that shoebox,
That I was not ready yet to let him go, 
I was not ready to kiss him goodbye...
Yes, I and I alone
Had the power to save him from the shrouds of death
To defy reality's quick acceptation to his misfortune

It is fascinating, though sad, as I lay here, that it is so
This reassuring dream just returns, 
And will not, refuses to let him go...

I am relieved though, even glad, as I wake with heavy tears
It was merely a dream, though it is also so much more..
I am glad, because, though my pulsing mind may be irrational,
Though it weaves fantasy onto future pains, 
I know it holds potential optimism...hope

If he were alive now, I would always be there watching over him
I would hold him, love him, cherish him more than I ever did
But I cannot.
We rarely can...

I guess I am just afraid of the time when Dream Me realizes this truth....
And then the nightmares I dread... will begin

Fantine's Fallacy

Life killed the dream that she dared to dream.
Life gave her change,
And Change killed our poor Fantine.

Dark days,
Long nights,
Cold sweat,
Firm hands,
Callous Cackles,
Tooth ache,
Swollen Sores,

Between Life and Death was the only choice,
She prayed that death would strike her by surprise.
If not for her prize,
The fruit of her womb.

Whilst working till she gasped her last breath,
It seemed she lamented her life away.
What had she left after such mistreatment?
Destroyed pride,
And if trust were left in the farthest corner of her soul,
It was to be in man?
Man who drove her to insanity.
Or A Man, a Man with enough pity? 

If not for mistakes, we could live our dreams,
Watch them morph into realities,
And into little perfect stories, 
With flowers, sunshine and happy endings…

But in the midst of wars,
Spiritually, emotionally and amongst humanity,
The brothers are weak,
Whilst the enemy gains strength…
Hope appears to be dead?

The truth is, 
What kept my Lady,
Kept her going for as long as she did,
Was the strength from one greater,
The One that knew her hearts desires,
The One who heard her deepest fears, 
The One who daily dried her tears,
The One who took her home to rest.

Trip Twist

In the void, sipping the zoid,
with mental properties of tripping on the spiral.
Falling down the tail of lions, awkwardly spinning.
With upside down tunnel vision leaking through.

Solidifying all matter that matters,
melting into the walls of your brain.
It tickles all the raindrops dripping in your eyes,
satisfying your desire of a synchronized pattern.

Bleeding purple from the rainbow,
and turning into swirls of diamonds.
Slipping exuberantly beside you; driving you wild.
Where the shadows stop the spirited scream.

Devour yourself into the omniscient grip. 
Icy cold finger tips scratch the surface of your divinity,
bringing you closer to the God who whispered in your unborn ear,
situated in your flesh from birth to death.

It embeds itself in the pupil of your eye,
dancing with your spirit and licking your soul.
Black shapes of madness wrapped in chaos and euphoria.
Twinkling and blinking dust of a cloud. 

Haze filled skies and blood filled smoke raining from the clouds.
Envisions of clowns and demons laughing at our demise.
Chilling sensations of sickening mannerisms,
mechanisms and mechanics sought out to destroy the tiny creatures.

These creatures running crazy into acceptance of demise.
Deprived of life, scared of death but giving into it's taste.
Taste buds quiver as the taste grows sweeter.
Death, oh death, tell everyone who you really are...

Too long have you been hidden in the shadows you cast, 
too long have we rendered your pain.
The world grows sicker as the hairs in my head grey. 
I'll never surrender as demons always circle.

Today, begins a new day of our fight.
And I have a good feeling about this day. 
Onward, we have united our minds and gathered ourselves within. 
Always ready for we accept our fear. 

We accept our hate and everything in between.
Accept it all for what it really is. 
No amount of doubts will over throw us. 
Onward, to peace.

My Story Telling Can You Trust Me

Gun fire all around, bombs going off in the distance
It was some of the angry mobs and resistance
Father was the king of SafeHaven a small kingdom
Like all other kingdoms it fell in random
Fire started in the castle
And along with it came a battle

It was a distance memory now because the child has now grew
Many things in this child that made memories stew
My name is Mastrey, a young orphan who was there that night
Mastrey saw her in the distance and her father and mother in his sight
Everyone was loud that night and made all the children hide
But that evening Mastrey saw her mother and father die

She ran into the bushes in such a fright
And evil doers were running around with flashlights
Mastrey remember it as he distracted them 
Her eyes was so confused with problems
Mastrey new that it was because of what just occurred
His feelings of what those people did was not awkward

The distraction worked, he went back to were she was
Hiding and very scared she was, he asked her, can you trust me just because?
Her answer that night depended on her lively hood
As Mastrey was their with his hand reaching out to her as he stood
Pulling her up from the ground he looked into her eyes that were SeaBlue
Mastrey had made a life long friend and love, She knew it was true

Dialogue of Souls

Best of friends, for countless years,
we had the best of times.
Now as my eyes are filled with tears,
your soul to Heaven climbs.
The path we take, not always clear,
I feel so lost without you here.
Your last words, prophetic now,
“I’ll be home soon”- you knew somehow.
You left me here, I’m so alone,
but I dreamed Heaven had a phone.
We talked all night, you fell asleep,
I held the line to hear you breathe…

dry cry

the child of a distant mother
whose cry ran dry over the other,
the child of nothingness in winter
whose feet ran cold to the toe,
to whom were she without 
a glow to the unknown?
for whom need she commute
when she does crawl than norm?
then who must follow when she cries
to the voice of a soul child; so dry?
where is the father gone too long
or were there a mother, done too long?
whose child a tender care must one render
to which child than love of a parent?
her lips cracked in instances 
and tears long soaked in her tearful skin...

Some Dreams Never Last

Softly the breeze flows through scented meadows
gentle sounds of water from the rivers
and haunting notes of music crescendos
in the distant background from the speakers

A cascading shower of climbing roses
she waits for her lover impatiently
over his lateness she agonizes
at last his footsteps coming hurriedly

he catches her up in his arms and spins
round and round until dizzy they both fall
her heart and emotions are now tailspins
she loves knowing it could lead to downfall

For to another one he is promised
yet he tells her that his heart belongs to her
she knows that he is a materialist
at first it had seemed a great adventure

Sighing she tells him that he must depart
his plans of her seduction now thwart

Two's Magic Nose

Such a nose had Ol’ Blue.
Best in south Missouri... everybody knew.
Could smell a pheasant across the plain.
Could point a covey in a hurricane.
That’s the way the legend goes.
Ol’ Blue had a “magic nose.”
As Blue got older, his master’s mind would drift away
To a place where he and young Blue used to play. 
In the mornings, sitting over his coffee cup
He found it sad there were no pups.
He thought it would be such a shame
If the only memory was Ol’ Blue’s name.
So, Jim was compelled and full of pride;
He made a search, far and wide,
To find Ol’ Blue a suitable mate.
No doubt, his offspring would be great.
It seemed likely, he supposed,
At least one pup would have his “magic nose.”
She was a Champion Miss from New Orleans,
A beautiful “red” named Cajun Queen.
But Blue suddenly passed away, before the pups were born.
Jim was broken hearted.  He and “Queenie” mourned.
Then came the litter, but there was only one.
Jim struggled for hope; after all, he was Ol’ Blue’s son.
Dappled and lanky, a handsome little cuss,
He looked just like Blue.  Jim made such a fuss.
Naming this pup would require no ado.
It was obvious.  Officially, he would be “Blue Two.”
Oh yes, these were mighty large tracks to fill.
“Can he?”, folks asked.  Jim would say, “Heck yes he will!”

So his nickname became “Two” and he seemed to be smart.
Soon it was time for his training to start.
The basics went well, but Jim’s outlook grew very dim
When, instead of pointing, Two would wag and jump and bark at him.
Oh, Two seemed to be trying; but try as he might,
He just could not seem to ever get it right.

“Blue’s son or not, he’s got to go!”
Jim found Two a “pet home” far away, in Tupelo.
On his way back, he stopped in Texarkana.
Been too long a time since he’d seen his sister Hannah.
Six days and six pounds later, he was back on his way.
Work at the farm was callin’ and he’d be drivin’ all day.
He thought about Ol’ Blue and wondered if and when
He’d ever have a birddog as good as Blue again.
Oh, he knew another “magic nose” was just a far off dream;
After all, it wasn’t something any man could scheme.
A “magic nose” was a gift from God, only given to a few;
And he was proud and very lucky just to have known Ol’ Blue.
As he turned into his drive, he broke into a smile.
“Why… I can’t believe it!  It…It must be 300 miles!”
Two was on the porch, thin and dirty; but he struck a handsome pose.
Jim ran and hugged Two hard.  “How’d you get back?  Lord only knows!”
Suddenly Jim realized; and struck with awe, he slowly rose.
A tear trickled to his smile.  “Why Two… you have a “magic nose!”
Two and Jim are best of friends, together everywhere.
From milkin’ cows to bedtime, Two is always there.
Jim doesn’t hunt much anymore, now Two’s a rescue dog.
Just last month, he saved a little girl lost in Cooley’s Bog.
Jim struts and tells proud, heroic stories;
While Two wags and jumps and barks, and shares his glory.
Jim boasts, “Like father, like son!”, then speaks fondly of Blue;
But all know the largest tracks to fill are those of Two.
His deeds are known far and wide,
And fill Jim’s heart with love and pride.
For with every rescue, the legend grows;
About a dog named Two, and his “magic nose.”

My Future Generation

I can act insane
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…

My Desire

That sweet smile that you have…..
The image of you burned in my mind;
That soft, warm touch that you give me
thrills me from inside out.
I see myself up against you-
smelling your sweet scents.
I feel your body….
my hands over your chest.
So strong- I feel safe.
One by one, 
I unbutton your shirt, 
kissing your bare skin as I go. 
I know how much you want me….
how much you need me.
Your hands caress my body…..
I feel the warmth of your skin-
I invite you to know every part of me-
Thrill me into ecstasy!
You burn my body with desire I have never known-
and I can feel your heated desire-
The feeling driving me wild….
I will touch you as no one ever had….
And I take a drink-
My heated fantasy longs for you
And I am ready for 
the pleasures of your soul.
You belong to me-

Recalled Memories

Tenderly she picked the pink flower
day dreaming of the first flower given
wandering over to the bedecked bower
she dreamily looked at the garden

Memories of happy times came flooding in
the places they had visited together
Roma where they bathed in Turkish basins
Athens, they were victims of a flasher

Paris is the city of love and romance
here they had dallied playing some love games
time they spent alone in a loving trance
their love for each other fueled by flames

Love had bound them for all eternity
memories founded on a dynasty

So out competing it's.
Sighted by a crowd.
Embraced by few.

I love journalism!

Adventurous it's.
Sounds of rockets in netherworld,
Not about to transfix a journalist,
But only sought-after,
I love journalism!

It's a dream in me,
A dream of gold and my cheese!
I want to fit in the press shoes,
Now I got to write, report and broadcast.
Journalism don't gravity me!

A lonely evening

In many dreams of you, I wish
If I could get my hands on the wings
If only I could come over to you now, 
It would be the best moment in my life.
Alone in a cool evening
With the light of a candle and the breeze from afar
And then the moment would draw close
And the night would become our friend

And nature would support our breathe
And our dream would seem simple
And nightmare be far from us
For the moment would be the beginning of a new era
And the dawn would bring joy
Happiness and love

You are the chicken and you are the egg

Wrote my dream woman on a blank piece of paper, 
Said she was this, and this, enjoys this, and that,
And most important of all, she must laugh at my jokes.
(You see, my darling, I do them no justice)
Said list was long, but I found it acceptable and true,
It was, however, uncanny how it seemed to be you,
Fitting into the interlaced riddle of my specified peculiarities.
(The chicken and the egg conundrum thus begs itself)
Were you simply the fit, or were you, in fact, the mold?
Are you the dream realized, or did the dream just materialize
After having only gotten to actually know you in this life?
(I'm just going to take a shot at making you laugh)
How did the chicken go to the other side? It crossed
Knock knock! I'm the one who's there.
My dream woman, and you. Now, which came first?
(Psst... The answer's here, but I'm not telling you where)

Falling In Like

I love it when you hold me close, and always want to play.
How in the morning you message me; on every single day.
When you call me every night, before I close my eyes-
Or always tell the truth; never any lies. 

When I get to see your passion with every story that you tell,
How even when you’re angry, those feelings never dwell. 
I love that you protect me, from everything around;
That even when I’m lost, I know that I’ll get found. 

I love that whenever you start to drive, you make me kiss your cheek.
How my stomach gets butterflies with each sweet word you speak.
That you cuddle me for a moment and then turn on your side,
That all of your accomplishments and family give you pride. 

I love that you support every decision that I make,
That even if you’re embarrassed of things- you’ve never acted fake.
How you always want me to be happy, no matter how I feel.
That even when we make things up- it’s never been more real. 

How you always make these plans, that often tend to change;
When you smile at my senseless jokes, and when I’m acting strange.
That you always say I’m pretty, even when I don’t think that it’s true-
How you think that I’d want anyone else; when all I want is you.

Dreams - An iota of Hope

A poem based on relationship…”A girl in her own dreams” 
wrote by Mrs.Madhavi.Suyog.Pagare :)

DREAMS - An Iota of HOPE 

“Waked up 7 :00 am in the morning..
saw my beauteous dreams transforming..
ohh yeah..with a drowsiness yawning..
Suddenly I found myself refreshing.
Excitedly Gone near by emblazoned window..
Fearfully Viewed a gloomy shadow..
Suddenly he smiled at me through haze of smoke..
Like a fantastic sizzling coke..
Soothing music on its full swing ..
Like a glittering diamond in the ring..
He ought to give me red rose..
On his bended knees he bows..
He tickled on my pierced nose..
With which I got glaciatedly froze..
Like a tempting dark fantasy chocolate melting in the mouth..
We strongly decided and took a royalistic oath..
He Embraced his hand on my shoulders..
Which Got intact like file and folders…
Like the moon  shines in the sparkling night..
Enduringly felt to hug him so tight..
Dazzling  Eyes immersed  in each other..
Tuned together like a romantic lover..
Every nerve of  us conjoined together..
Because the love lasted forever..forever…

Suddenly a glimpse of sun came and shattered all my zestful dreams..
“”Ohhhh.. ohhhh No..Not again. Not again. No more illustrations. No one can dwell my heart like you. Please come back. No more dreams please..””

 Yep this feeling arised at once and will be still till our last breathe. Lasting forever. Just forever..
 We trapped in each other’s heart and now no one dare to break our love-life’s part.. Apart..

Love is the essence of life and it is measured not by the count of breathe we take..but by the moments we share together till our last breathe..

Life Bubbles of Joy

~The fount of life’s bubbles having a desire to be, becomes many bubbles 
of love’s own state or desire to continue. Life bubbles into four seasons for 
reasons of changes preventing mere human concepts from becoming obsolete 
conservations in control. As life's being bubbles forth holding uniqueness in life forms, each and every  one is remarkable in itself of origin. Many would say, 
"Life is like an assortment of lively bubbles."

~The human species is a dream bubble of the higher nature, “I would Say!” A paranormal dream living in its lower nature pending one's transition into the higher 
consciousness. Can a dream respond against one's own identity as man's 
knowledge and develop a model army of one's own ego; love being the first
impulse? Can an individual formed reply, “Why was I formed thus?” Life bubbles 
are akin to human consciousness, of Love’s paradoxical notion, to be are not to be.

~"We shall today we shan't tomorrow!" Humanity hath not expression of his own 
destiny this or that way, "For human nature hath not yet conceived in adulthood, the 
exuberance of man place in infinity. Love knows not a today or tomorrow for 
love is today and tomorrow, in the bubbling off of shape.

~For life's stream of a human being that persist in shallow government would not 
yet be a person format in full payment by faith in the source, would he? For the now, 
the subject of testimony provisioned of, is the constant guide, people should rely 
on its divine tracks; besides nature's plan guided by divine reference, there is non 

~As for me, I will recommend, support and arise as a bubble of humanity’s 
meaning in life, as long as I have the paranormally significant amount. I shan’t 
exchange nor change my right of authority. I shall provide bubbles of irrepressible 
joy and happiness as they are the paranormal measure; I shall hear of and rest in the design of divine pattern... "I THINK!"

My Cloud Number 9 Inspired by Bryan Adams

A cloud…
A prelude
To ecstasy
A sweet fluffy bed
That carries you and me
A floating castle of dreams
Where nothing is quite what it seems
Cloud Number 9: our room in the sky
Making we "watch the world go by!"

Life of an Ice Cube

Natures gem solid Cold, now taken in my hand Her back in arched shape To her nape, warmth slowly melts Witnessing trickles running Down her spine it flows Curvaceous sighs quivering In hungered view, I Retrace it's path to her nape Fingers now cold in excite .

Chasing A Dream

To what end can I chase a dream
You know it would seem 
To be insane…………
Never knowing what's real but still feeling the pain

I can reach for the flowers in bloom 
But they're all consumed
The fires' to deep - I just wish I could sleep

I look to the moon for answers but she just smiles
I don't have a clue - I've got too many miles

To what end can I chase a dream 
You know it would seem 
To be insane…………
Never knowing what's real but still feeling the pain

I cry out in the night - but the echo hurts me
It breaks me down into broken dreams
I run for the door but its no longer open - to me
I cover my eyes...... but still I can see

To what end can I chase a dream 
You know it would seem 
To be insane…………
Never knowing what's real but still feeling the pain

Questioning Life

Forget! Regret not, for it all has intention...
To attempt comprehension leads to double block wall.
In searching your question, much more loss is gotten, 
Confusion, dismay a deeper dug hole.
Infinitely seeking you strive for some meaning, 
the truth is quite simple you are not sole at all! 
Infusion connection the union eternal, 
Is easy to grasp when knowledge of whole,
is truly encountered from deep within query
The meaning the truth the love of it all...
Once trouble & strife and struggle are missing,
The clear light of being shows beauty once more.
Accept what is given agree to the treaty.
Fight not with your fears, and answer your call.
Find substance in living, step over delusions. 
Regardless of meaning, life’s radiance will soar.
So use this awareness these words and this practice,
Come forth tall and sturdy, head high and recall..
When sad and when empty in need of intention,
No doubts I plead! No need to explore!
Emotions you hold are sensed by your siblings,   
Your waves of sensation your truth and your soul... 
Are parts of us all, we are all together we are all but one!
In oneness we’re whole!

                                          Listens to a violin playing
                              As she embraces her loving instrument,
                                   Dreams of playing in an orchestra   
               The soothing, warm, rich, clear, and relaxing sounds of the violin
                                       While in concerts discipline.  
                      The slow, dips, and peaks pitch sounds reverberate,
                       As the bow dances around the strings and filtrates
                          Playing SONG ESCALA - CHI MAI as it escapes

                                    An  image of  a couple unites,

                                       Listening to the violin play
                      Waltzing with the soothing sound as it assembles
                              As a floating feather touches down, 
                                            On the veranda
                             She is in her finest long flowing gown, 
                           He is in black tails, white ties and gloves,
                Under the splendor of the brightness full moon and stars.
                                    Listening to a violin playing

                          As she embraces her loving instrument
                     And dreams of the day she will be the one playing
                                                And waltz 
               Under the splendor of the full brightness of the moon and stars.

I think of you when I slowly drift off to sleep
And every morning when I take my first peep
I think of you and I'm overtaken by contented smile
Holding you, let's just stay here for a little while

I think of you and I know my dreams are reality
Love's raining down, no umbrella.. it's just you and me
I think of you how your kisses are as good as it gets
Let's be together, forever, Girl we're a perfect fit!

Let's be together, forever, Girl we're a perfect fit!
Girl, a perfect fit..
Perfect fit..

I think of you!

Kill a smile with a kiss
The demise of it will visit you in your dreams
Never will I let you
Drown in a pool of angry thoughts
I will be your unexpected smile
Every time I bring u roses b4 valentine
A wet poem I would recite for you

I would make you my 1st rhyme
your heart-beat will rhyme
Twist my beat box
Into a love song
A cartoon I would paint in your heart to keep you smiling
Your twin smiles I would define in vernacular
Though I speak no language from Peninsula
My parents will define your beauty as African splendor
Black mother nation
Smile please smile

Faraway Dream

I do think of you too... 
dreaming of our moments together....
you are love in my dreams 
sending you a smile when you babe see 

Oh just how that smile, just blew this mind away 
wishing I was holding you warmly right now 
Kissing you on the brow softly emotions
touching with lips and whisper into your ear 
you came to me in my darkest night
an angel of such rare quality

Soft gently nibbling the air in your every breath 
gasping gorgeous waves deeply brushing walls
sitting wishing you were here echoes 
silently dreaming thinking faraway 
Paths cross always you're forever inside floating

Sending you my destiny warm light filled with sparks 
generating from the heart  flying without wings
floating an army of kisses invading deep

Each one a star blazing thought 
sending light across oceans
Rising sun kissing honey 
morning golden sparkling dew
Love passing one big warm hug 
missing you beautiful gem

Into My Dream

I dreamt, I was a butterfly or was I, a butterfly dreaming . . .
     Peacefully detained by a delightful young gent,
Lying in green mead where buttercups were beaming;
     Releasing an enchanting aromatic scent.

Peacefully detained by a delightful young gent,
     His fascinating smile lured me in my slow stride,
Releasing an enchanting aromatic scent;
     Where enrapturing view overtook me inside.

His fascinating smile lured me in my slow stride,
     Entrancing flitter hypnotized to restful sleep, 
Where enrapturing view overtook me inside;
     When into my captivating dream he did seep.

Entrancing flitter hypnotized to restful sleep,
     There he envisioned I was his true love to be,
When into my captivating dream he did seep;
     Making a woman without wings to set me free.

There he envisioned I was his true love to be,
     Lying in green mead where buttercups were beaming,
Making a woman without wings to set me free;
     I dreamt, I was a butterfly or was I, a butterfly dreaming . . .

Words of Life

Drowning in the pool of anguish…oh…oh…
I’m venturing into the forest…and I want to hear the words seep out 
Release these aching sorrows…I worry my soul’s drying out…
like a drought…
Drain out the fluids from my heart
It’s gouging me…bruising me to the core…

Embrace the light…embrace the midnight sky…
You fall in my arms – you die so warm
Shed me more sun to lift up my spirits
From the…underground…and release me – I’m breathless
I’m drowning in doubt…ooh… oh… 

Remember me…I’m falling…into my swirling fate…hanging on the roots 
Strangling my heart…distorting in my veins… I’m bleeding so softly – cut out the wood…
Splintering me…I’m shattering… and I’m falling in the abyss
Bring me more radiance from my candle light
Warp me up in bliss…don’t let the midnight sky…don’t take away my delight
From the…ocean…and save me—save me…oh… oh…  I’m failing 


I’m drowning in regret…ooh..oh…
Hit the bull’s eye in my heart…embrace the light
And don’t leave me hanging in the abyss…hand me a kite!
Save me before I fall apart…shut out the night
And don’t let the dusk escape us…

I must confess…
I must confess…
I hate to see you abandon the light…
But I’m not the one to save you from the night


Splintering lies fill your heart 
I want to kiss it goodbye…
But you’ve mastered it like a piece of art
I want to kiss the abyss and die…
Dry… I wanna touch the sky with my whole soul
But I’m failing and the end of time has taken its toll
Tainted sorrow…swims around me…I dwell where the waters depart
But the anguish still swarms in my heart…
I’m failing…my heart stops beating
And my desires are fleeting
From my grasp
And the monsters laugh at me…as I fall… 


Embrace the midnight sky…catch me…catch me…
As I fall in death’s arms…I die so cold
And your heart is made of gold

Untangle the darkness & take away the nightmares 
Answer our prayers & block out the night 
Erase the heartaches & wipe away our tears
Unravel Your words of life & delight

Don't Try It

A single kiss from thy lovely lips,
so sweet and so divine,
yet I taste posion upon your tongue.

Your beauty so glorious,
like a blooming rose so beautiful,
yet, why do mine eyes go blind
in the sight that you walk along with another?

Yes you, walk with another,
arm under arm,
lips touching lips in romantic kisses,
it makes my blood boil,
for mine lips are dry.

For mine eyes have seen your glory,
yet no one here listens to my story.
You are evil, yes you are,
don't try to deny,
Listen to a man of experience,
you might as well save some expense.

I write of our long romantic walks
we took together, under the shade of olive trees,
how we went apple picking in autumn time,
and made love in the foyer.

Nomore of that sweet and passionate love,
nomore silent kisses in the night,
when the wind blows hard against the branches,
that tape violently on my windowpane. 
Nomore somber tears shed, when you got sick,
and nomore warm embraces when you shed tears of betrayal.

Betrayal now is a game played by a fool,
such as I,
to think I'd have a happy life with you?
Huh, only a fool would think such a thing,
but now I sit, looking at the foyer,
where we once made sweet, passionate love,
nomore will that foyer be filled with exotic pleasure.
Nomore will you be filled with smiles and exotic pleasure.
I've done my job, as a good man shall do,
now pack your things and get of my stage,
the spotlight yawns for anew,
and the audience grows tired and restless of you.

Now I live life anew,
you too shall see life in new eyes,
walking hand and hand with the blond, blue eyed devil
you call your own.
Shall he take one kiss from your lips,
and die of the posion he tastes on your tongue,
shall he go blind, when he sees your true, black beauty?
He will see the ugly soul, covered up by white rags,
and cheap makeup,
and then he will come to me,
and shake my hand in condolence
and say, "You were right!"

Now you are all alone,
looking for another, as you did many times before,
Now you are alone, walking an open road,
spying on another,
fear of being alone.
Now, you see when you play games with a good man's emotions,
don't try it,
because a good man is not meant to be toyed with.

The clouds are walking and smile a bit, above the green for joy inviting;
They call a playful rain; the green is shinning; the blue is winning…
And your heart is reading my Ghazal, but rhythm is missing:
Because from ink, ascends so sweet and white, the merry dove.
An arrow flies above the rest of world, the mirror’s love,
At other side of our night, when sun and moon are meeting:
A world of statues in which the dreams were pouring down
Since the beginning of the time, since nothing had been (known); 
But clouds -huge butterflies, and maybe stars, just dreamt the light… 
And those blind dreams were swimming to sweet season of love:
Here is the same river of time, where God forgot his blessed glove.
Unforgettable love at first sight, whose light follows the dove,
And crosses the world and the heavens of That One Love!

The pain I put in the ground.
For such a precious thing.
The family enjoys their meal.
They plant their leftover kernels.
And wait for me to tend to them.
An endless cycle in which happiness is born.

She Walked with Grace

She walked with grace through grassy  meadows
pausing to smell the sensual fragrance
watching the rabbits dart down their barrows
their white tails flashing creating a drama  

Azure  skies blazing, making perfect the day
she laid in the grass. dreaming of her lover
handsome and very tall he was her mainstay
he set her alight making everything brighter

She remembered the way they  spun around
as they danced  together through the night  
gay garlands hanging  down they were spell bound
silhouetted  in the dazzling firelight

That perfect night when all the world stood still
their last dance that night was a quadrille

His Valentine

He looked into her big round eyes . Eyes full of wonder , trust , hope . The face of dreams and innocence. 

" Follow me " he says taking her by the hand , drawing her to him . Taking his hand , touching her cheek with his long fingers . Brushing back a wisp of hair that had fallen against her soft cheek . She only nodded . She couldn't speak , " could this be 
him ?" She prayed silently . Her feet followed the dark hair stranger . 

Into the forrest he guides her . The deep shadows of darkness it provided , swallowing there very existence .

She's led to a place she'd never seen before a place of mystery. The hidden beauty, beyond imagination . She could feel the shade's cooling breath on her face . The wet grass as it brushed against bare legs . 

He led . 

She followed . 

His damp shirt clung to his back . The muscles rippling under the thin linen cloth as he guides her down the worn path . A place he was familiar . 

Thru the darkness into a small opening in the trees the sun pours about , giving a opulent glow of light and comfort . He stops and turns to her tilting up her chin , whispering , looking into expectant deep pools of sea green eyes . 

" You and I are destined ." 
" For you my dear , are Love .
        I am Desire "

Whenever   I  see  you ,
Naively  I  giggle ,
just  like  an  excited  toddler.
When  I  sleep  ,
I  only  hold  a  single  dream .
In  that  dream  I  see  you  smile .
I  smile  back .
When  you  are  happy  ,
I  feel   fulfilled .
When  you  ask ,
I  feel  that  I  have  to  give  everything .
When  I  am   with  you ,
my   heart  carries  this  certain  feeling .
I  feel  as  if  I  am  about  to  do  something .
Something  precious .
As  if  ........ ,
as  if  I  am  about  to  fly .
Sometimes   I  feel  as  if  I  am  about  to  win ,
a  trying  race ,
against  a  million  challengers .
If  I  am  alone ,
I  go  back  to  the  last  hour  I saw  you .
Alone  I  smile ,
and  search   everywhere ,
as  if  I  have   lost  something .
As  if  I  am  looking  for  something  .
Something  precious .
It`s  like  I  am  happy .
Maybe  I  don`t  know .
I  guess  I  like  you .
I  don`t  really   know .
Maybe....... maybe ,
maybe  I  know ,
I  think  that ........ ,
I  think  ,  I  love  you .

Sapphire Star

Among the stars she searched for one
to be her friend on distant dome;
her thoughts to lay and whispered gnome,
her childhood tales and scopes undone.

Among the million bright sparkles,
she chose one that kindly signaled,
her lone thoughts to him syllabled
mind's endless lines and traced circles.

And in the endless astral fire
she saw his friendly blink to smile
similitude of a Greek isle,
it was the sparkling of sapphire.

A song ascends from the pine woods
to meet the smiling star of blue
and is their solitude untrue,
unsolved of questions understood.

And then she slept on distant fare,
along the bless of blue sapphire,
the tunes of a Greek ancient lyre,
accompanied their dreams in air.

And while she slept the sapphire weaved 
blankets of light she softly held
the lyre star song dreaming she spelled,
and then for nothing else she grieved.

What Do I say

I see you over there with a smile on your face,
that makes you glow and stand out to me in this place.

I watch you to see if you notice my look,
You make my heart ache like a fish on a hook.

It's hard to approach such beauty I know,
I bide my time to let my confidence grow.

I try to think of something unique and special to say,
but I know there's nothing that others haven't tried to play.

Looking at your hair and longing to know you more,
What could I possibly say that you wouldn't ignore?

Your smile makes me melt in my imagination of you,
One mistake could easily push you away and it's through.

How could I approach you with such a beautiful attraction,
I feel we could have such love all I need is a good reaction.

If I can't think of something to say you can't refuse,
I fear that you'll be gone forever and I would lose.

Why has it got to be so hard, it can't always be,
Give you my love, but my love you'll never see.

Don't You Dare Wake Me

Arm in arm, cuddled together in your warm bed
Pure heaven, as on your bosom I rest my head
Satin sheets, you in lace, bringing a smile to this face
Heartbeats felt upon my chest, your body my fingers trace

Eyes closed, caressing each other by feel and by touch
Soft kisses to your neck, whispering "I love you so much"
Passion abound, warmth I seek, we are turning up the heat
Kisses getting deeper, longer, as one our hearts now beat

Needed comfort, needing to get closer, needing to be near 
The scent of love is in the air, as all my troubles disappear
Desire, wanting you. things getting wild, feeling the steam
Rooster crowing, don't you dare wake me from this dream

Twenty Days Silence

The laden fruit tree crossed my heart
Tempting me to seek another path
I refrain from satisfying the appetite
And went on fasting to end this
Vicious and painful plight.

I deny myself of everything in search of 
 A new beginning so I went off in a period of silence
Away from everyone and explored deep within 
but instead the answer came for someone else. 

I drifted in a dose on January seventh
The night was extremely cold and I padded
My self with four layers of sweaters
and four pairs of socks to keep myself warm.

In the wee hours of the early morning 
The answer I seek for myself was not clear
But I know that the answer was for someone else
On this night the mystery was retold in a few words.
And someone’s was there to reconfirm.

I dreamt that I was in an open space 
sitting on a big park bench  and a woman messenger
In the form of a Prime Minister came to me and asked,
“Will I be reelected?”
And an angel replied, “Yes”
That messenger confirmed that a popular woman
In America will be the next president.

The messenger suddenly disappeared in thin air 
I got up and walked towards the street
And saw a woman standing behind a podium 
On the pavement of a busy street
Addressing a jubilant crowd. 

The Messenger walked across the street
And passed a note in front of the
Woman behind the podium
She glanced at it briefly then continues
To address the jubilant crowd.

I took the note from the messenger and
 went in the bushes close to a nearby bridge
Suddenly a man appeared and stood close to me
We read the message together
And this was what the note said,
 “I need help with the infrastructure”

We stood in the bushes and looked up at the bridge
Cars were speeding over it but something was
Unusual at the corner of the bridge
A rusted spot was exposed 
It seemed as if it was about to give way
So I left the man in the bushes 
 And quickly walked away.
I woke up suddenly out 
of my sleep before the break of day.
                                                                 ©2015 Christine Phillips

Some Dreams

Some dreams have no answers some dreams make no sense
Some dreams last forever perched upon a Razor-wire fence

Some dreams make us empty, other dreams make us whole
I once rode the breath of a dream right straight into my soul

Sometimes I search for answers to questions I have never thought
I used to think every dream had a price and it could be bought

I learned that dreams, which can be bought, are not dreams at all
Just another way for some fool to bang his head against the wall

I pray all throughout the day, in the circle I burn my sage
Isn’t everyday of our lives another beautifully written page

This is the way I have come to believe, it is everything that I see
Sometimes what is, is not what was, but it is as it should be

Life is made for living and we must all choose our path
The good, bad, happy or sad, it is up to us to do the math

So what does this poem mean have I not written it so clear
Dreams, schemes and old routines can drown our soul in tears

So if we are unhappy about the lives that we have come to live
Lets rely on a dream with Jesus Christ teaching us how to give

When we are willing to give all we have, the Lord will
make sure we will always have something to give. Be
strong in who you are and what you believe because in
the end you will pay the price of your actions. Let your
Soul be where you seek your answers for Christ lives
with-in each of us. Our mistakes prove we are human
our salvation proves we are redeemed and our love is
what proves we are saved. I love all of you more than
i could ever say. I hope that Gerard Keogh Jr. reads
this poem for i wish to dedicate it to him. What a
wonderful gift his poem to many of us was.

                On your lips,
                after you fall a sleep, 
                two short poems,

                on your lips,
                in front of you're eyes,

                                   No one is aloud to wake you up,
                                   not  this very night,
                                   while you're dreaming  your loved one
                                   no one,
                                   no one, is aloud to dream about you,

                in those nights that are just yours,

Choices To Face

I have some choices to face,
But these are not my decisions to make.
God told me what He wants me to do;
He said, "Listen, Son, I have a plan for you."

A dream

I had dreamed
what this black petals
of flowers
on the top of tall trees-
I had dreamed
what this waterfall- black
from mountains
of  dreams
Dazzled  amazed my  soul
what this scent of sweet woods
i had swam in
what this paints
with golden hinna
ornaments of love 
I had seen
In my dreams
what the moon
I had seen in her sit- in
on a golden saddle
i had seen-
my dreams
as eyes glow
And her lips
In a dreams
Of desire 
I dream

                          wrote by Mrs.Madhavi Suyog Pagare

 Loving You is Blissful - My Darling Hubby 

 Twilighting glow of the sky..
 Wanna fly so high..

 Sparkling amidst the million stars..
 chosen the crazy pal and so life is excellently par.. 

 As like the blossom were kissed by soft rain..
 Your arrival in life diminished all my pains..
 God has entwined me..with my emarald diamonite gem..
 Enlightening new vistas in life as like your next aim.. 

 At an astounding pace time flew..
 But When i didn‘t see you..I feel like..Life is been dew..

 Your divine presence in life rejuvenates me..
 Every tick of my heartbeat resonating wit your‘s or whatever it will be..

 Your innumerable naughtiness made me silly..
 But yep, your beautifying nature had an fragrance in life like lilly..

 As like snow crested the nestled mountains..
 You cuddled my a sip of fountains..

 Being With you, Life is euphorically elated..
 Full of high spirit and delighted..

 Thanks for being accompanying me my theist..

 Your admirer with lots n lots of Love:
 Madhavi. Suyog.Pagare

A Departing Memory

I know you.
Candles lit, incense fuming,
You like it when I bite your neck, just hard enough.
Blankets thrown about the room
So recklessly, they refold themselves.

And we roll down a hill together,
Kissing the leaves, tickling with our eyes,
Laughing with our hearts.
"You'll just leave me for the next girl you find."
"Yes," I say. Because only
Lasts forever.
And it spills through the cracks in your hands
The moment you grasp it.
Like water from a stone.
She bites my neck
Drawing lines of ecstasy down my back with her fingernails
Spilling into me, fighting my words.
"I leave when the sun sets."

a pretty face

a pretty face has haunted my mind
all day today hundreds of times
yesterday she sat next to me
it captured my attention to a certian degree
and today i wondered what could it mean
i lost myself with in her dream 
my thoughts have now turned into schemes
what to say and what this means
six more days untill i see her
and i wonder if she'll be more clearer
if she intended to be more dearer
like a child with a dream yet i still am
it's not a new thing it's as old as i am
infactuation or what ever it is
something inside me that i let live
what will i do with it, i have to choose
it's part of the game i can win or lose

Swings of Childhood

Into exile
To depth of feeling
To the green paradise
To silence of seasons
To the Old Testament
Wherever you go
Swings of childhood
Will whisper to your soul
Which bets as the rain
Swings of childhood
Will whisper to gulls's hearts
Which bet as dreams
Into exile
To depth of flowers
To outer space
to the bottom of black hole
Everywhere in the universe
My imagination will call you
And we will meet
When swings and gulls meet.....

Lost and Found

To imagine after all this time that has gone by,
    I would be talking to the one that once caught my eye.
Out of nowhere one day she just seemed to appear,
   Just so incredibley surprising to me after all of these years.
Sharing all those thoughts and dreams we once had ,
   How we laughed at those days yet it made us a bit sad.
For the feelings I did not know she had for me ,
   It only makes me wonder what our lives would be.
Our hearts now beating as they did back in the days,
   How we are acting like children going out to play.
The love I feel for her has never felt so strong,
   A love that once was I thought was forever gone.
But to my excitement I can honestly & sincerely say ,
   The love that was lost has been found and here to stay.
This thing we have found in this love between you & me ,
   Joy and happiness for the rest of our lives is what I see.

Love Is Love

Love Is Love

For love is love
Even if it’s never spoken
With just presence
A timid heart can be broken
With just the slightest touch
And rage tamed,
With the smallest of glances
An unspoken heart, claimed
For when love is there
Doubt won’t cloud your mind
For when you let it out
A new feeling of joy you will find!

Having this in your soul
Is a must to keep living in bliss!
And where ever you go in life
Love’s what clears that mist
The fog that puts fear in words
And lies in each thought
Love isn’t just another part of this world
That can be bought
It’s earned, after exposed
Nurtured after entwined
Caressed in its weakest point
Something so pure that you rarely ever find!
And if found should be kept close
And never let go
Should be appreciated
Even at its pre-stage where it seems slow.
Love is peace, it’s…..
It’s that moment in time
Where after the last minute
In your deepest thought you rewind
To that point you smiled
And everything seemed perfect
That after she spoke
All the world’s worries you neglected
It’s the reason I hold on
The reason I won’t give up
The reason I wait patiently
Months after grueling months.

A Forever Dream Sleeps Beauty

I went to the little islands today 
under the evergreen fir tree, magic 
Sang, sitting on a large rock enchanting 
over looks the lake love, will you sweet babe 
Deny me as just one guest following 
dreams listening to songbirds in sweet song
someone who shares this one view I lay back

A clear blue sky with fluffy ivory 
white bleached clouds thoughts stirring tunes playing 
Dreaming inside ocean waves thoughts drifting

Ten by ten a fish jumps up and plops
rippling rings forever circle hope
deeply thoughts sailing always my strength 
Dancing whispers inside a breeze warm
silently loving best memories
Those in my life dream angel were made
within this one spot I kiss honey
Golden leaves now scattered on the soil 
beauty I will never forget you 

10 syllable counts by 10 equals one in a hundred 
9 syllable counts by 9 always and forever holds a dream on that cloud

Details | Lyric | |


I'm not ashamed to let everyone know
Stars shinning on us I can't let you go
In the moon's mist love has captured me
On a night sky I've got a summer fantasy

Across the dark sea the morning dawns
Long distance romance inhibition gone
Guided by angel light I make my way
The waves stand to clap as if to say..

Boy, got to chase her tonight
Don't let her get away
When your dream is in sight
Who cares what they say
Stop sneaking around
Who ya trying to please
Boy, you know what ya want
And she's across the sea

Every sail's up move as fast as I can
I'm going to win the race and be her man..

Boy, got to chase her tonight
Don't let her get away
When your dream is in sight
Who cares what they say
Stop sneaking around
Who ya trying to please
Boy, you know what ya want
And she's across the sea

Memory of You

I  traveled at the colder dawn of my life
and saw the lights laughing at my side.
I come to feel, but I heard your cry
hope it isn't true, best if your fine.

stay smiling even if it's falling black,
it isn't the end of  path.

wish you're by my side before the burning sand,
but it 's just old crazy truth, I must keep in mind.
I had dream of it almost all the time,
but it's over end of line.

wish you're at your best, never had faced freeze.
for I'll clear your way from nail's of life,
just let me know I will.
remember my promise,
all may die, but my words with you is eternal.
never fade, you're the visible treasure of my life.

You can leave, you can hide.
only for a day of your life, promise me you'll be fine.
I'll come back to heal the time,
as the winter kills my feet,
I'll keep the farthest I can make.

wish you're by my side before the burning sand,
but it 's just old crazy truth, I must keep in mind.
I had dream of it almost all the time,
but it's over and end of line.

wish your at your best, never had faced freeze.
for I'll clear your way from nail's of life,
just let me know I will.
remember my promise,
all may die, but my words with you is eternal.
never fade, you're the visible treasure of my life.

In a dream she kissed my lips
“They are cold like ivory”, she said,
“I want lips made of gold”,
The sky was dusky, light losing to dark.
If you dream, dream with morning
A lone torch defeats all creation
and a kiss must be fast
Or will scorch my lips – Golden true lips.
An Explanation: Since Science still unable to explain why we sleep, Dreams remain out of their field and keep their colored hue untouched.
Because of this, poesy has given to humankind the best definitions about dreaming; from the two doors of Homer, the prophecies of Joseph, the butterfly of Lao Tse, the flower of Coleridge, the Wonderland of Lewis Carroll, the first aesthetic creation of Borges, poets have been sure to dream a dream that wasn’t quite a dream.
It is their task to show us the line that divides reality and imagination without telling us which is the right side or which is the left side.

A Dream

A dream of peace and not of chaos.
A dream of love and not of hatred.
A dream of family and not of loneliness.
A dream of friendship and not of conflict.
A dream of plenty and not of poverty.
Can a dream of beauty ever become reality?
Only time will tell my lady, only time will tell.

To My Future Wife

I think back to the day I wrote this song
Remembering all of the things I’ve done wrong
But always wishing for this day to come
Longing to be somewhere that I truly belong

I knew that everything that I’ve gone through
Was a journey which was leading me to you
All the mistakes I’ve made
Just made me wiser
All the heartbreaks I’ve survived
Just made me stronger
In the end God’s plan did come true
Because now I’m with the beautiful you

I think back to the day I wrote this song
I had the ideas of you running through my mind
I thought about you all the time
Even if you’re not what the 20 year old me thought you’d be 
I know that you are so much greater then I could ever dream

I want you to know this as true
Through thick and thin I’ll always stand by you
I promise to love you with all that I am
I will always be your biggest fan

We will be best friends until the end
I will do all that I can to make your brokenness mend
I’m gonna strive to be a Godly man
And keep our relationship aligned with God’s plan

I think back to the day I wrote this song
I felt like I needed this all to come right now
I longed for my will to come before God’s will
But that’s not an answer I was able to steal

I promise you that I will do all that I can
To strive to be the perfect man
I know I’ll always fail in my hideous sinful mask
But with God there is no impossible task

So until the day where we can finally meet
I will dream of you every night when I sleep
Think of the beautiful nights that we’ll walk hand in hand
Together wishing we could travel through a foreign land
The romantic nights will always be a dream come true
I’ll fight off the whole world if I could spend one more night with you
I long to finally be your prince charming
And that one day you will call me your darling

Lonesome Zareba has one dream left to live for,
but too often it escapes through her open door
and as the transparent clouds of September,
her sad eyes are their mirror while she touches her hair.

Oh, she has big eyes as admirable as the Fall serene sky that grows brighter!
Each noon, on a sea-washed monolith she watches seagulls emitting loud shrills;
" Bounty " is  beautiful word she has learned from wondrous Nature,
but human love she desperately desires to feel again her man's hot lips!

Her hovel has a hearth where she bakes bread in semi-dark,
and while fire crackles Zareba sees stars...dreaming at night;
for every star she counts, a seashell is put away in that moon-lit cave...
hoping that the man she loves is still alive, not laid in an unmarked grave!

It's the beginning of another spring and she thinks of her distant love;
snow has been replaced by dainty flowers and Zareba can sense that something 
wonderful is going to happen, and as she hears the heavy footsteps approaching...
a slim, tall man runs towards her shouting, " Darling, I'm finally home! " 

Poet's note:

A dream came true for my next door neighbor, a Russian lady, who told me this story when she lived in a hut by a lonely shore, and yearning for her husband's return from war, she thought she had one  dream left to live for. After two long years the war ended, and her husband returned home. I have used Zareba as her name to be qualified for this contest.

Your  love pricks me like a rose each thorn grows but no one knows Your so full of

through with the tears, you couldn't pay me all your money to make up for those 
years. Someone help me I feel faint how could I think he was such a saint and 
worst of all I let me fall into a spiral down below. A magic called love carried

The Risk of Choice

It would be too easy to not believe
And not have faith in all He wants us to see.
But I don't want to risk my life being saved

Inevitable Bear

Oh lonely Inevitable Bear,
Padding claws, death in white
Sorrow in recurring nightmare
Instinct’s test; fight or flight?

Camouflage against the fence,
A challenge; my subconscious fear
Ominous slowly moving silence,
“Let me in, there’s a bear out here!”

Love Is-

Love, I thought was meant to be
A word that makes you smile
Love, I thought was meant to be 
A feeling so worthwhile
Love, I thought was meant to make you laugh
Not make you cry
Love, I thought was meant to say hello 
Not say goodbye
Love is meant to leave you 
Feeling happy every day 
Love is meant to guide you 
So you never lose your way 
Love should be the dream 
From which you never want to wake
Love should be the person 
Whom you never will forsake
Love should be the one you lean upon
And your best friend
Love should be the reason for beginning
Not the end
Love’s a word I used to say
But now it’s in the past
Love to me is just a feeling 
Never meant to last
Love to me is just a word
Reminding what I had
Love is just a word that leaves me 
Lost, alone and sad
Love to me is make believe
A dream that can’t be real
Love just leaves a bleeding heart
A wound you cannot heal
One-day love is everything 
You ever dreamed would be
Then suddenly it leaves you
Saying “I” instead of “We”

My Heart Sings

As the first rays of sunshine
wakes me out of my sleepy slumber,
I sat up in bed and looked at my hands.
The taste of stale cigarette smoke of cheap red wine
stained my taste buds.
I walked out of bed,
turned on the radio
(to the classical station)
and my heart beats to the tune
my life and soul smile as the sun shines in my room.
I hear God whispering in my ear
I hear all the words of the world
talking to me,
and I can hear my heart sing a little.
I read my poetry,
get dressed go for a walk,
I smile at the faces that I pass;
The cars I pass,
the houses,
the trees,
the dry lawns,
burnt and that have not been watered in days.
I smile at them and they all smile back,
and my heart sings a little,
and I dance to its simple tune.

My heart sings and I dance too:
slowly melodies,
fast jigs,
rapid jazz and swing music
and waltzes to the chopin masterpieces,
and the romantic stories, novels, the poems,
that fancy your mind with its ryhme schemes,
and after I read such romantic beauty
I smile, and I listen closely to my heart,
and with every beat,
it lets out a verse or two, from a familiar song
that caught my ear on the radio,
and my heart sings
and I smile,
and the world smiles back.

Feeling such beauty
love and romance
it is such a good feeling to live with;
and as the night rolls on,
and the sun goes away
I sit at my desk
writing poetry,
with a cigarette slowly burning away with time,
and I am stuck,
getting drunk of red wine,
I sit back in my chair,
and listen to my heart,
and he sings alittle
and I can write again.
So, there we sit together,
writing poetry,
smoking cigarettes,
drinking wine
to the strike of nine
and we both sing songs of love and romance
together forever.

A Feeling That I Knew Too Well

A feeling that I knew too well;
With every word you spoke I fell-
Falling deeper into the bliss;
Longing for your every kiss.

Without you here my heart grows fonder;
Around the park I start to wander-
And think about how you make me feel-
The longing starting to become surreal.

Giving meaning to my life,
You lift me up from pain and strife.
I thought it was a feeling that I knew-
But with your guidance the passion grew.

Spiraling up with every touch-
Never wanting to leave your clutch. 
Waiting for your familiar glance-
Missing you with every chance.

The moon

Sometimes I dress you with silver
And claim that you are the moon.
After awhile I turn off the lights
To dream inside this dark room.
A chilling wind makes me shiver,
I will steal love from your mouth.
Like in a thousand and one nights
We will travel to the warm south.
Let’s divide our war’s plunder
On the top of the tallest tower,
Surrounded by mingled gardens
Underneath a stardust shower.
“Where is the moon’, they wonder,
Better to ask “Where the night went?”
Both are my guest, I am the warden
Of the stars and the moon crescent.

The Dream of Life

The purpose of living isn’t all just giving
But receiving back in return;
It’s a two-way street not always so sweet 
When lessons are meant to be learned. 
The dream of life is struggle and strife
And love like it has no end;
Every moment is a double edged sword
Where enemies might become friends.
The potential’s inside to laugh or cry
At the weariness time invokes;
While appearances change what’s really strange 
Is fear on the other side of hope.  
And children playing in complete abandon
Immersed in the here and now;
Jesus said be just like them 
But we missed the message somehow.  
This life is a gift, a mysterious lift 
From out of the who knows where, why or when;
All that is real is the love that we feel
And all of the pain when it ends.
Although nothing’s ever final they say
Because the universe is a gigantic mind;
Interwoven and interconnected throughout 
The fabric we call time.
Dark and light, black and white,
North, south, east and west;
Opposites attract and interact 
Like wakefulness and rest.
The dream of life is to see this life     
Deeper than oceans lay wide;
From cradle to death we tend to forget 
Our home is the boundless-ly beautiful
Starry skies.

My Wishes are Simple

My Wishes are Simple

My wishes are simple,
my desires few,

to gaze upon an ocean,
and marvel at a solitary drop of dew.

My wishes are simple,
my dreams not too grand,

to feel the waves teasing my tired feet,
with no footprints left in the cool, wet sand.

My wishes are simple,
my thoughts serenely gentle, calm,

my heart resting beneath a swaying palm,

healing my being, caressed by nature's soothing balm.

Because God Created Us To Look Forward

We have eyes in the front of our head
Because God created us to look forward
To aspire
To dream
To reach higher
With our eyes
We will see all we see
With His Sight
We will become all we are born to be
Reach out farther
One step closer
Up to Our Father
To dream
To aspire
Because God created us to look forward

Fear In The Dream

I log on, open up, and close the screen
Too afraid to look, too afraid to follow my dream
Afraid of the weapons they hold that are actually support
Afraid of being myself 'cause that's vulnerable
I can either run with my worry
Too nervous to see what God is doing
Or in faith I can follow His every leading
Scary yes but I'll pray for this is His dream for me

Relax, slow,down, and enjoy life!
You're the only you, "you have" so be gentle.
Really notice what's right in front of you and enjoy deep within.
Sounds so relaxing the mind drifts gently in and out of sleep seemingly from dream to dream. Completely at peace, surrounded by beauty; a soft breeze gently blows past.
A smell so delightful it sends shivers through your body. A taste to your mind; your mouth waters as if eating a delicacy rich and pure!
Allow life's moments to become memories; treasure heartfelt friendship and love; follow your dreams and live in the moment. Life is too short; don't let it pass you by!
Doc, slow down, and enjoy life! Look and see what's right there, dream; they do come true, smell a rose or two; make more memories than you ever thought possible!
Doc, treasure you, "because I sure do".

Staring blankly through the frosted window pane,
reminiscing about the past all jumbled in your brain.
Memories shaded by the utter sadness in your heart.
A lover who left though you thought he would never part.
A springtime love affair straight from a movie screen,
romance everlasting in your heart or so it seemed.
Forever the dreamer, even now you truly believe
that your lover will return to you before New Year’s Eve.

Opening the gate onto my future 
My heart pounds in anticipation
Leaving behind my haunting past
A full moon promises new horizons 

My heart pounds in anticipation
Your face came to me in dreams
A full moon promises new horizons 
Our passions know no limit

Your face came to me in dreams
My suitcase stands at the door
Our passions know no limit
A whiskey bottle lies empty on the floor

My suitcase stands at the door
The clothes I brought, too drab
A whiskey bottle lies empty on the floor
Everything too loud and cloy

The clothes I brought, too drab
The new negligée in red and black 
Everything too loud and cloy
Lying crumbled on the floor

The new negligée in red and black 
As if torn from my very soul
Lying crumbled on the floor
My spirit never broken

As if torn from my very soul
Leaving behind my haunting past
My spirit never broken
Opening the gate onto my future

If its money I got its money ill keep. If its money I have its money ill weep. If its love that I give its love ill receive. For I am but no one who just see's beneath. Some say your only as strong as you feel, but how could we a place that's so unreal. People are hearing but..not really hearing. Why is the world so blind. I keep on screaming and screaming and screaming for things to be revolutionized. I am just a small song in a world full of cries, laughter, tears and french-fries.

A person I've met before

You are a person i've met before.
The man who stands knocking at my door.
I remember you from my dreams,
Your eyes sparkle and your smile gleams.

You held the door open as I ran in for shelter from the cold weather & rain.
You are the man I stood next to in line.
You are the man I passed by
I danced as you sang the songs chorus.
I pushed my way through...
the sea of people and stopped next to you.
Amidst the crowd we stood, searching for a way out
I looked around, I glanced in your direction, I looked past you 
I found my way out, I hurried my way through.
I walked away having not met you.

A second glance, I did not take,
unaware that our meeting was fate.

You are a person i've met before,
Sometime ago on a night like tonight,
The air was warm, the stars shining bright
The night that we met,
I danced that night, I danced and danced until the morning light
I sat to lay my feet to rest, you came to me no different from the rest
You asked me for a cigarette.
An open chance to conversate 
knowing this interaction would not lead to a date
We shared thoughts and ideas of similar interests.
such as music and poetry, art and astrology.
At the time I thought nothing of it, a casual meeting of the mind.
Little did I know, I would continue to meet you throughout my lifetime.

You are a person i've met before,
I've read your book of poetry at the local book store.
you write of life, love and family.
You are a person i've met before,
I've seen your paintings, they are hard to ignore
You are the artist I dream of meeting
You are a person i've met before.

You are the man in my dreams, 
Your eyes sparkle and your smile gleams.
I've met you 100 times before,
You are the man who stands knocking at my door.

A Dream to Dream

Light across the horizon
She stands upon the shore
Whispers to the wind
Bring back my love again.

Delicate as butterfly wings
She drifts, closing her eyes
Dreams of a dream
Of days gone by.

Wind whispers to the dark skies
As rolling thunder slowly dies
A moment two hearts feel entwined
Bound by timeless earthly ties.

If only time  could change
If she could gaze upon his face again
She closes her eyes again
To dream of dreams gone by.

A love story

A love story

There lived in the heart of the country
In a place called Crystal brook
A little girl named Tahlia Rose
Who had that kind of look
That said she was a dreamer
But she was beautiful
She was a maid of so much charm
This girl, she had it all.

Her smile was like the morning sun
Her eyes were like the moon
And oh, she had a lovely voice
She sang a pretty tune
And everybody loved her so
Cause she sparkled like the stars
And people loved to look at her
They came  from near and far.

She grew up, and looked so grand 
All the best folk all around
They sought her out to marry her
But she would not be bound
By any but a special soul
Her suitor, he must be
A man of rich and sweet compassion
And much integrity.

He must love her like no other could
She must be his heart and soul
And they would love, forever more
For fate gave them this role.

Then came a man, a poor, poor man
He roamed from town to town
With a smile just like a blooming rose
He never wore a frown
Her parents never liked the lad
And banned the whole affair
But our two, they carried on
All wrapped in loves sweet care.

And so I finish off this tale
By telling all of you
That these two lovers had their day
There love it was so true
That fate did join the two as one
In a bond to last forever
Though that was fifty years ago
These two are still together.

Nightfall Surrender

Nightfall Surrender

You became a part of me
as I join in and became
a part of you…
   rolling along with the waves
   you complete me
   as I complete you

Soul mates lost
in forgotten time…
the ebb joins the flow
in luxurious tides
finding fulfilling delights

You alone fill 
my empty spaces,
   as the waves of the sea
   fill the voids in the sand,
permeating my being 
with extensiveness
as no other has before
or since

Tick, Tocks
the forgotten clock
lost in the bliss 
of the sensual night…
pulled under 
in wave after crashing wave…
   drowning quite happily
   in your arms…our crescendo!
Then comes the sighs 
of morning’s arrival…
as tears anew stain
your empty pillow…
   still somehow
   your memory
   completes me
   if only at nightfall
   when remembrances
   thrive in dreams pleasure

Love over Hate

Broken promises
Meaningless words
Empty feelings
Secrets unheard
Thoughts racing
Heart wondering
Feet pacing
Tears thundering
Illusion of love
Faking of fate
Imitation of above
Leaking out hate
Purity in the day
Darkness at Sun fall
Finding a way
To conquer it all
We unite
We Fight
Love over hate

Embrace me

Embrace me like there is no other one
Time flies, we get old, changes will come
Life is short and you'll need one

Hold me deep, and as if you have won
I return to touch you now. Please..
Embrace me like there is no other one

To hold you and to keep you before you run
And if you feel there is no time
Life is short and you'll need one

Keep me close to your heart for fun
As the love I feel will keep you strong 
Embrace me like there is no other one

That will kiss you and stay for the long run
Even with cloudy skies and dark nights
Life is short and you'll need one

To love you, to make you smile and scream 
That I am here to stay, and all you need is
Embrace me like there is no other one
Life is short and you'll need one...

                                         ...Person to love!

The Dreaming Tree

So long I thought my trust was gone
withered in a vase that sat 
unwatered neglected posterity's memory 
pressed and ordered flat

I suppose some slight yet weak desire
believed that someday still
I'd find one soul who's promise transpired 
while building false hopes unskilled

For trust is like a pillow
flipped to the cooler side
It's the hand that touches your shoulder gently
when you let down your guard to cry

It's the feeling when your turned around
lost in the land of strange
the hand that reaches leading the way
to familiar surroundings in exchange

It's the peace in knowing no matter what's wrong
you needn't look far or wonder how long
your help will come from day to day
leaning on the one who finds a way

There's a trust in a dreamer 
who's so much like you
when "soon" emerges all too slowly
two with the same dream can make it come true

This is the trust proven not wooed
so much alike you needn't explain
they knew your thoughts without having to say
for the look in your eyes gave it away

Flattery with all it's tantalizing charm
sounds sweet like honey going down 
but only as fulfilling as a country farm
in a picture with a frame going round

In this o'l world when "with you in spirit"
is the saying most commonly known...
here I stand with you hand in hand
is the proof your not alone

Trust did not come easy for me
so hard to build so easy to break
all the hidden agendas I feared
the slow to give and quick to take

But on the day we first did speak
of promises given or made
you said your arms my safest place
by what you do not what you say

For that ONE key was ever lacking
the door love enters at the start
for all enchantment love can bring
trust is what opens the FOREVER in my heart

As I think of these diamonds on my finger
sparkles halo the chocolate center stone
the thought that never leaves my heart
is the lifetime I felt so alone

A ring that tells the story
of a beauties life in the dark
surrounded now by clarity 
of the trust that owns my heart

Trust is the love I never knew
you'll live for me, I'll die for you
with tux and gown, yes and boots
in the life we've made and say "I Do"

Never again to live in wonder
if dreams will ever come true
there's no joy surpassing you see
then living a dream too long overdue

In quiet reflection of all that's been
the room you gave my heart to know
the freedom you gave then gave again
the seed you planted then watched it grow

A dreaming tree you knew in time
would bear the fruit of love
a love that took forever to find
nourished in the soil of trust

I Want

I want to sing you
I want to write you
I want to watch you
And describe you

I would like to compose you
You, my ninth symphony
To put you on a stave
To play your melody

I want to sculpt you
Without engraving too much
Hardly anything to change
Some details to fix

I want to photograph you
Under different lights
To whip with the flash
All those artifices that are hiding you

I want to break your records
Go through your body's limits
Jump higher, run further
When man an athlete is one

I could go on with other arts
But none of them seem good enough to define you
So I'll go on in which my words are the finest
For you, I'll never stop writing

The Old World

You don’t know the old world,
But you would have liked it.
In that world, when I was young,
Like you, hungry to eat the roots
Full of fuel, I dreamed I could fly.
Flap my arms and fly, freely
I was a helium balloon,
Rising up into the blue sky.

When I think of you, it is like
A portal into that old world,
Where all my lost years unwind
A chance to find those butterflies
I left behind.  You, who don’t know 
But you would have liked it.

His secret

In tears his body frozen a still
He whispered "A secret for you
I must, if you will"?

His eyes possessed by fire & 
For one must hear!

A vision a Goddess you must 
A blinding aura...
Your sweet scent washes over 

Your eyes of seduction green 
they shine...
My dear angel,
You are not broken, just 

An explanation for you I'm 
Afraid not...
Tortured has been my soul,
To live without you I fear I 

A gift I thought? Or feared it 
could be,
A demon sent to test and 
Break me!

Lifeless I am - desire a loss
With no care for what this may 

A shift in their attentions
A love was built to comfort- to 

Covered in a blanket by a world 
To busy to see...
The forces of nature were sent 
To make this be!

In this restraint "I will not say 
My dear goddess...
May I kiss you & melt into your 

The angel's silence had finally
Been broken...
Her aura sang words never
Meant to have been spoken!

I am now yours as you had 
This to be...
"My Dear, Your kiss is 
everywhere &
Only where I want to be set 

There it was as if her senses 
Could see-in his kiss...
Invisible melodic images burst 
From the trees!

None of my secrets could be darker than yours,
and as raging rivers cutting through prairies;
your haste missed what my words revealed;
crying out the beautiful word, " Love " scared you indeed.
Wouldn't it been much easier to have shown honesty
and banished any doubt that made you lose
the grip on reality and time? If someone refuses
to deal with the dilemma she has caused:
what can be done to prevent it from happening? 
I suggest you forget me and the thoughts spoken
to charm a lonely man whose seduced heart 
couldn't give up the one who made him dream in daylight. 
Sometimes sudden revelation hurts more that hidden pain,
a pain that was meant to reveal desire...
a desire felt but never fulfilled as a promise;
and who asks this question, " Do you love me or not? " 
Having two broken hearts is a real tragedy...
two souls seeking love, denying the possibility
of ever being together in life and death;
then what is the best solution for us:
to end it before obsession becomes madness...
turning a bright dream into ugly darkness?

What Did You Dream Last Night

I blow my Saxophone strictly for the pleasure...Its my gift from God one of my many Treasures.
      Took care of all eight of my children; Some have college degrees.....I take things
like they come,never hard to please.  Took care of my dear ole dad tho he neglected me.
Used to steal moonshine,to help my ole granny.  Long ago I did that stuff, myself still a
boy. No small stuff do I sweat ,No strangers have I met. Work hard,hard play,moving
obstacles out of my way.I love my wife, I love my life "Hey what did you dream last night!
God I love my music:My music I love by God! Seventy years old I am,still working in the
mines.  "Hey what did you dream last night" When he hits the number he's doing what God ask...doing what God loves,sharing and caring; Blow David ...Blow Your Horn,against all odds,against all adversaries. What a good brother! Hey that's my husband! Hey that's my dad!..Hey that's my uncle Dave,loving his own and others. Passion is his saxophone. He said to write a poem,especially for him..I call him uncle Dave, you see,but he's really a GOOD FRIEND!

Drunk in the City of Angels

Drunk in the lost city,
lost in the vase beauty of the angels
drunk, smoking on park benches.

Freaks, trannys, whores and pimps,
looking at me;
a one of a kind.

No one has ever seen me on the streets of L.A.,
beacause I am a one of a kind,
a gentleman, a drunken buffoon.

I hurl myself at the bars,
and the whores look at me and smile,
and I wave them over, and they come.

40 bucks for a night a good fun,
a night of exotic pleasure,
in the heart of the sleeping angels.

Drunk walking,
two in the morning,
police stop me, sleeping on a park bench.

Warm always warm,
never cold,
the city that is lost.

A city known as the city of angels,
yet how many devils I have counted.
How much evil I have seen,
how much temptation rules in the gutters.

Walking drunk on madness,
in this dirty city,
as I look for a bar before last call.

I find one,
I go in,
order a beer.

I drink with pleasure
I start to write,
I light a cigarette and smoke.

A grey cloud forms around me,
"Last call for alcohol," the barkeep shouts.
I raise my hand, he comes over.

"What will yah have?" he asks,
"Another beer and my check."
On the house, free drinks, on the house.

After a night in the city of angels,
I find myself a cosy park bench,
and fall asleep, dreaming of the angels I had never seen.

The Traveller's Unclaimed Land

He says he loves me then he says he loves me not
He loves me today but by tomorrow I'm forgot 
He runs from my love but returns wanting more
I guess I'm to blame for letting the traveler explore, 
See travellers just wander and are never here to stay
They admire the scenery and enjoy the display 
They tour the land and ride the attractions
So memories become their only subtractions,
They search for an experience that is what they yearn
The condition once they leave is none of their concern!
So how can the land be devoted and true 
When travellers come and go out of the blue.
The present is now and where he's travelled to,
But the past he calls home so he must return soon
Most likely just a visit although time can only tell, 
But what he lusts is in this land and he knows it very well
He may call that place home but its this land that he seeks
Travellers on a mission never realize until they hit their peek
He continues to damage this land down to its core 
So what's left to offer when their is nothing left in store?
The resources were depleted and the land left bare
He comes and goes as he pleases it doesn't seem fair;
See this land has been abused time and time again
Seeds that were planted, were means to an end
But pleasure and satisfaction was always accomplished
Because this land provided where the homeland was disadvantaged!
But despite the history and despite the trust
Submit to his urges is something he must.
So this time around his departure is permanent 
Lack of faith and loyalty was the final determinant.
The damage he caused cannot be rendered,
So his visitation rights he has surrendered!
So leave this land I say and never look back
This is the path you chose I hope you can stay on track,
Cause travellers have memories of the lands they have stained
But the land only remembers the one that remained!

Kissed The Sky

Two peas in a pod that would be my wife and I
We have grabbed a dream and kissed the sky

Two full-blown addict’s on a dead run
We lived our lives just to stay spun

Outlaws, lovers and partners in crime
Lost forever in the hands of time

Living just to somehow survive
Walking zombie’s barley alive

Found in each other the will to fight
Out of darkness and into the light

I love her more than words could ever say
We have helped each other live the right way

Forever bound to each other’s love
Giving Praise to the Lord above

Two peas in a pod that would be my wife and I
We have grabbed a dream and kissed the sky

The Dream Maker

Eyelids dance in a world obscured
Fabricating illusions we will seek
Like the melody of an unforgettable song
It's conception buried in the deep

Visions of his eyes
The tone of her skin
Is the one they see a dream
Or something clearly impinged

His laugh and the curve of his lips
Sun-touched highlights in her hair
Are they fabled reveries or
Unconscious aspects by which we compare

She longed for his tender ways
He wanted for her seducing dance
A distant memory that was never lived
A dream within a dream perchance 

We're looking for things we've never known
In someone we've never met
For this we cry and bow our knees
A joining of halves that must connect

And if by some miracle of fate
These two dreamers paths do cross
By no visible nor unseen force
Could ever unjoint loves intercourse

The Dream Maker
In some majestic space resides
The famed and masterful slumber illuminator 
Arranging the destiny of lives

For Rick, the love of my life!

Get out of my Heart

I lay, dripping, soaked within a dark sweat,
seeing and hearing your soft voice abet.
I want to run, to leave this merciless realm,
but you pull me closer, without a choice at helm.
Get out of my dreams.

I miss you, but I hate you, every last memory.
You taunt my every being, you’re all that I see.
I see you in the crowds, or when I’m all alone.
You’re here and there, on your heartless throne.
Why couldn’t you stay?
Get out of my life.

I hear your laughter and see your beautiful smile.
Once so beautiful, now helping others with guile.
You’re now decayed, withering into shallow dust.
I loved you so much, and never again will I trust.
Get out of my head.

Tears I weep, when others aren’t around to see –
I remember the days, the months and years I bleed.
I try to forget, and to hate you and your choices.
But all I can hear are these damn forgiving voices.
Maybe I am what you proclaim me to be.
Was I really that monster, that demon you see?
I hate what I love and love what I hate.
I try to erase our past, and to claim it our fate.
But I can’t let go, you’re all that I hear and see.
I wished you could have loved, that loathsome “me”.
Get out of my heart.

Day Dream

A Day Dream

I wish there was you
The moment I wake up
Kissing my good morning sunrise
Asking how my night have been
I wished.

I wish there was you 
The moment I walk by
Holding my hand safe and steady 
Taking me to where I needed be
I wished.

I wish there was you
The moment I run astray and afraid
Embracing my fears gone totally 
Building my defenses tall unwary
I wished.

I wish there was you 
The moment I get sickly unhealthy
Nursing me physically, emotionally
Reassuring you won’t leave- until 
I get myself back normally
I wished.

I wish there was you
The moment I gave my sacred vow 
Promising with me a lifetime of together now
Unfolding my veil from a dream of somehow
I wished.

I wish there was you
The moment I close my eyes
Remind me everything was real before it was
And you were in time before I sleep.

I woke up. 
to a day dream, crying.

more than fascination

When I first met you 
you were so cute that
my brain just couldn't compute 
so I went mute
 As I stared in awe 
Wanting to know you
Noticing that 
the reason my heart ached was 
 because of you
A girl much more than a pretty face 
I never wanted to make love out of lust
but then I realized 
that it was in you I trust
So I must change 
to show you
this isn't simply fascination

I lay sleeping

I lay sleeping with eyes wide open,
I lay sleeping with dreams that have no meaning,
I lay sleeping with nothing to dream about.
I lay sleeping with no care and sleep with eyes blind,
I lay sleeping, there with my eyes wide open.

Seeing the dark change from dark to black.
There is no moon, there is no sky
just purple strokes of paint in the sky.
Take that morning dew smell and close your blind eyes.
Smell the morning, that smell that clicks in your mind.
The smell of childhood dreams,
that as an adult never came true.
Sleeping bare in the nude with your eyes wide open.
Thinking of her, as she is five thousand miles away from you.
Wanting to love and hold her, but no use in crying.
Sleeping their with blind eyes in the dark that dances in the light.

Your lamplight turned down low,
as life trickeles down in its nightgown and yawns for sweet slumber.
Tired from longs days, and sometimes long nights,
wanting to curel in bed and close its blind eyes.
Dusk will soon peek its head through the blinds
and awake life to a new dawn.
She sleeps in the morning, and walks at night.
When he sleeps at night, and walks with a bare nude heart in the morning.

Life climbs over yellow mountains,
and meets her fellow compainion
a handsome fellow with broud shoulders and blessed with an ego
as I sleep there with my eyes wide open.
As I sleep with my eyes blind to what life has intented for me,
and as I raise to walk the lone streets at the break of the dew covered lawn
at the first sweet smells of dawn,
I can see life go on with the handsome man
and I blind and wanting to go to bed.

I dream of dreams that have no meaning
Gardens of cluelessness and raging emotions
tare me down and I am confused on which way to go.
Do I stay here and dream away, blind and half awake
as life slaps me across my broad cheek?
Or shall I walk on with life hand and hand
and regain my vision of the world,
Start to sleep with dreams that make sense
and dreams that are made of gold and have no end?
Dream of fancy dreams that show love and happy endings
I would love that, and I would love to walk with life,
but she is out of my leauge.

And my bed is so cozy and I feel like sleeping.
So I shall sleep on more restless night chashing life down.
I lay sleeping with my eyes wide open.
I lay sleeping with dreams that have no meaning.
I lay sleeping waiting for life to come back from the mountains
and lay beside me.
I lay sleeping with hope of regaining hope and salvage
what is left of my spirit at hand.

Dreaming Into the Day

You waken from a dream of pure delight,
relinquishing the magic of the night.

But as you go outside, you find the hue
of sky is now a technicolor blue!

The grass and trees are greener; every flower
possesses now a greater fragrant power.

How sweet is everything! How can it be?
The answer, friend, is very clear to see.

When love has come to you, this is its way;
enjoy it! You're dreaming into the day!

Hear Me , My Lover, Please Sail On Back

Hear Me , My Lover, Please Sail On Back

 Close the door, put out the cat
 a rough ride, are we in for that
 Sling the covers off the brass bed
 we need no heat we got sex instead

 Let our hands seal this sweet deal
 your slay me with that sex appeal
 Sexy transparent gown you may now put on
 my love as hard as an elephant bone

 Your love is my world wrapped in gifts
 your smile sings and so uplifts
 Longing for you day and hot night
 your naked body, O' my, what a sight

 The moon cries for your beauty so loud
 hiding its paleful light in a shroud
 Forests cry out with their dying wood
 your body they'd steal if they only could

 Across the lake where we first laid
 is the spot our love was first made
 O' glorious day, flowers at our feet
 blessed spot if only we could still meet

 So long ago that you sadly sailed away
 never knew why you couldn't stay
 Some family issue was all I ever knew
 such misery the dark day I lost you

 I can cry but never dare to forget
 that blue dress, how your body it fit
 Each memory sends me into heartaching pain
 shall I ever hope to see you again

 You thats more fair than any flower
 as cool as a nice Spring shower
 Hair that flows all about your cheeks
 we lay naked in bed for all those weeks

 Last week I dreamed of your return
 my lust kindled and ravagely did burn
 Now I hold onto that very slim hope
 why the hell didn't we just elope

 Brings me back to how you went away
 darkness falling on that miserable day
 Blues wrapping me in their viselike grip
 hell that burst forth as my heart did rip

 Hear me , my lover, please sail on back
 put our love so sweetly back on track
 Then, close the door, put out the cat
 a rough ride, yes we are in for that
 Sling the covers off our big brass bed
 need no heat, we have our hot love instead!

So ill raise my hands and Praise my God,he has given me love,I never knew,Im found

Starry Dreamy Night

I found myself sweating last night
From a dream I shared with you in perfect sight, 
The place is dark, a corner without a light
You pulled me agressively, I felt uptight! 

I heard your urging breath, so warm, so sweet
Planted owning kisses on my nape indiscreet, 
As you own me wildly, felt you were in
I can feel the rushing pumps you made in between! 

Oh, but at the wanting of this dream's delay
Woke up sweating; grabbed my robe; got up from where I lay, 
Cold water didn't help cease the burning chill
This starry dreamy night, I feel that sizzling dream still.

Starry, starry night, as I look outside
Saw the vast sky and I felt chill inside, 
Wrapped myself and whispered, "Where are you tonight?"
Hear my starry dream, hold me forever tight...

And I whispered as I saw the falling of the shooting star
Crossing my fingers and stared from where it will fall afar: 
"I wish I may I wish I might, 
Have my wish I wish tonight!"

Some Times before Slumber

Sometimes before slumber while counting the numbers
Of sheep in the back of my mind;
I drift into blue and think about you 
And me in those long ago times. 

When living gets lost in those waves we once tossed
Each other near the shores of our youth;
Where the sounds of your laughter for here ever after
Remind me of rain on an old tin roof.  

Dancing with delight at the thought of the sight 
Still smiling after all these years;
Sometimes before slumber while counting the numbers
I can see you, ever so clear. 

In the depths of my being at the edge of dreaming
Of you resting in my embrace;  
Where the seagulls still fly and you first caught my eye
Way back in that once perfect place.

Where now I see clearly, perhaps as nearly 
As the colors of sunrise at dawn;
Of memories made that won’t ever fade 
Well after they say I’m gone.

Sometimes before slumber while counting the numbers
Of days between now and then;
I feel myself glowing in the warmth of knowing
While sleeping I’ll see you again.

For a moment i held your hand,
when it became empty, i walked in hands with the devil

Wishing for my very last breath for when i hold you next.
knowing i can die over wiled 

Time never moves without you.
Time moves to fast with with you.
Time does not excise when you say those three words.

for i fell too deep, tryying to deg my way out.
For my heart is made of glass.
and yours is entwine with my soul. 
for is this a dream for do not wish to wake.
For just like a dream everything is possible when your there.

for i do not feel this way for who you are, 
its for who i am when  im with you.

because once apron a time i fell in love. <3

Unspoken Love

She saved herself from pick up lines though she looked vulnerable
She's sooo lovable her heart definition could ruin my poetic abilities 
You cannot put a price on her she's not billable
If only her lips where adjustable my soft poetry would define her inabilities and weaknesses for the mute to scream happily ever after  
She's untouchable i O you an explanation
Her tears tattoo broken spirits uploaded on instagram
She's no twitter baby though followers invite themselves its unbelievable
I could throw nice verses in our conversation but i'm afraid i'm love blind 

I'll tell you more about her if you ask me....ask me nice

Le Vacance Pretentieuse: Going Home

What is it to see the soil of home again?
A welcome, snow-struck and a return
To cold; sharp white contrasts sunburn.
We converse in broken tongues to men

We know, hooked on holiday language
Comprised of wandering hand signs.
Collect the car and pay parking fines,
Drive through towns and over a bridge

Until we reach the Western gateway.
Oh when will we arrive at our house?
No camels there, only field mouse
Which are eaten by our cat anyway.

The plane flies for an age, slyly yawning
Through the stretching, pealing sky,
A knife through air; what it is to fly.
Our travels over; a new day is dawning.

My Most Intimate Dream

Reality has surpassed my most intimate dream
In intensity, in passion, in love
Don't ever want to fall asleep again
Want to bask in the brilliant glow
To drink in the pleasures of the mind
Never allowing the feeling to leave
To vanish, to slip away

To know this feeling will never desert me
Is the ultimate joy of my heart
To feel the undying intensity of your love
My most intimate dream is alive

My most intimate dream is you

Lovingness Of Life

I will bring you a morning of sunshine and bliss. With two lips to bestow, the warmness of a kiss. A heart that is filled with joy and delight. Shining like armor, in the darkness of night. With strength and valor, in my hand is a sword. Into the setting of the sun, we will soon move toward. No gaze of despair, to be seen by an eye. A lifetime of fears, set free to fly. No more shall you feel that darkness doth loom. With the lovingness of life, you will break free from your tomb. Beautiful blue skies, cast away all that's been lost. My heart shall absorb the pain, of the worries you've tossed. Bring forth the new day, where smiles shall be seen. Without any anger happier dreams we will all dream. No burden of temptation will grip to cleansed hearts. Pure lovingness springs forth, free from all parts.

One Month Dream

When you wake up one day

and you have a feeling that

it is going to be different than any other day

yet, you have no proof why

But it is a feeling that over took in you!..


A moment of hard work

followed by rough times

immediately turns into

a huge heart felt smile

with passion filling me inside

and I wonder why?

It is because someone's smile is finally

lightening up my night..


Amazing days were truly lived,

being filled with Joyful spiritual happiness,

classical dressed up night,

hard work supported days,

joyful words being spoken

but unfortuantely, reverting no actions

leading to the heart being broken..


It is true that good time passes so fast

but I believe that this time

flew away.. or actually, Blown away....

Yet it was and still is.. A BLAST...

Keeping hurtful thoughts engradved on my mind

Painful scar in my heart..

tears started to heavily fall down

and then ...

I woke up from my sleep.. and realized that It was just a dream

that I had it being repeated for couple of days

making me feel it is real..

A dream resulting from my leading mind

with its "fairy tale - realistically taking place" buried thoughts..

yet everytime I dream of it

I end up having an endless smile on my face

As it was the first time

to truly dream of such a thing for a long time..

I guess..

It was the first and the last time

to truly feel such a blessed dream..

Even though it did not last long

but in my heart it felt so strong

and on my mind

it is drawn and shall be always re-drawn back

from the memories archiving it with time

knowing that this is the dream of my own life

shared with my... "true life"

It is so true that

The world could mean everything to one person,

but one person could mean

the whole world to you..

At the end, I can confidently say

I am so lucky I dreamt this way

Yet hope is filling me that

one day it will come so

or so I truly hope for..

What I see now

What I see now.

What looks at me now is
Uneven expanses of pale colored sand
Dunes in maze like patterns allured to be amused
Wind whistling hot on my blotchy hide, burning erratic heart too.

On a lonely mound a tiny brier beckons me
Unsure of arid destiny I sprint breathless
Dragging my form laboriously full with hopes to feel
The stroke of sandal of tropics , my enchantment
In that thorns midst, though intricate in the dusty breeze.

Stooped and bent of scandal and robust sarcasm
of a sneering society, I stoop further, come what may, to that shoot thorny
off a leaf I pick and to my nose I hold.
A whisper descends down the ears,   punctuates my thoughts once more
'Your beautiful nose’, I scent sandal of tropics long, lone, till I taste your breath...

Out come two hot blobs, salty trickle from slits of swollen eyes.
What I lost, is what I see now.

As the dawn is in sight
 I do not want the end of night.
I want to be back in my dream
  In the arms of a love extreme.

I dream of his loving embrace
 And of ecstasy upon his face.
I dream of his fevered touch
  That I need so very much.

I dream of his kiss
 Of Wanton bliss
Of Wanton desire
 That sets me afire.

In my dreams I want to stay
 Not to see the coming day
For then he is gone
 And his love withdrawn.

I do so ponder 
 If I too do wander 
Into his dreams
 Of dreaming scenes.

How does he awaken?
 Is he withdrawn and shaken?
Does a frown adorn his mouth
 As  his love is in the South?

My dreams of my love
 Are so far above
Any I have had thus far
 Yet he is still a star.

To Dream or not to Dream

We all have dreams, big and small.
Some live a dream, body and soul. 
They have the means to live it all! 
Some have the means to live a dream.
But have no heart to live the dream.
I wonder why they have to dream! 
If they can't live the dreams they have! 
If dreams recur, it means they love.
I wonder how they treat such love! 
Your dreams would like to see the light.
They've got so sick of every night.
So, set them free or bury them.
And you have lost a priceless gem.

midnight summers eve kiss

My dreams were that of nothing but your kiss.
A lingering essence soothing frayed edges of my heart.
Heaven couldn’t breach the wonder of your touching
hands. They tickle memories invoked by the scent of your breath
against my cheek. This is but the taste I crave every night, every time
I feel days too long since you’ve returned the other half of my soul.

The awe and wonder will never cease, mated souls
Destiny declared to me, that our love and fated kiss
could bring forth in our lives eternities timeless 
bliss. I never knew that which seemed to be a heartless
world would provide a love that would become my very breath;
for surely I would die each night if I couldn’t wake and touch

your beautiful lips. For they are but the substance that touches
me to this world. They spew forth the nectar that feeds my soul.
With you I am Queen Nivea, crowned in baby’s breath
about my brow. A midnight summer's eve of magic kissing
the air about our pallet. In sleep I hear our heart
strings shimmering our own melodious melody of half time.

In you arms my slumber is light, every time
you nuzzle my nape, asleep yourself, your touch
stirs my blood from half doze to a stuttered heart
soaring reach. It's the dust of twilight that moves soul 
music through our heated blood. Your fluttered kisses
wafts into this hot dream to wake me with a fairies breath

riding my senses like white fire. Though our breathing
may be labored, this is not a frenzied moment, languish in time
and savor the bouquet of miracles brushing your moon kissed
back. Miracle that you are the only one who could soften my touch
from the warrior I tried to be. You alone brought life to a soulless
husk;  the balm and solvent that softened my calloused heart. 

Now fully aware I reach to find your heart
beat, and find it shuddering to the pace of my breath.
Caress the plane of my face and nape as our souls
unite. Whisper the language of lovers every time.
Just never stop this Shakespearean dream touched
eve, our very reality exist based on this kiss.

Though our hearts beat in all consuming time,
your the force of my breath. You are my grace touched
body of life, my soul, who feeds this void with a kiss.

Sailing On

"Sailing On"
To live is to die but not before the ocean explored
We are the captains of our own lives, set sail young ones to the great beyond
Do not cast anchors in that which you know  
  You should be filled with curiosity for waters untraversed 
The amorphous domain of liquid wonderment is limitless for years to come

Though life and love are based on bow and stern 
Sometimes we have will have to dock if only to wonder, wishing more
And then to go full throttle back on the open seas potential
We still must heed cautiously those ships that pass in the night
Even if they are but journeymen themselves, others will mean you harm

Just remember they might loot your future dreams 
But they can never take experiences past 
So rely on those per chance to dream of better days ahead
And for one dream taken build two more 
Because in fact mixed blessings are the fish not caught in the first casting

"A Youth's Everything"
A first trial's bust seeks open arms to omnipresent consolation 
Attempts conclude in unconditional surrender but for an every time pleasantness
There breeds the encouragement to succumb to gravity
And often goes down the child, to liken the second part success, a misdirection all the same 
Stay away I say, Stay away
As for some neglect makes the heart grow fonder of you with absence 
Encourage only for trying to conquer ground on waddling toes, failure be put aside
To refrain from being there, disappointment is a part of life
In tripping and falling everyone must learn to walk
Let them learn instead to sulk alone, autonomy will make them stronger
And when they succeed on toddling feet soon there will be pride unlimited  
Vicarious joy for to the child who learned not to cry to you 
But to resurrect itself on its own bipedal terms, 
To leave alone, to love itself enough, to fight for gains other than your presence
And someday the youngster eventually will do the same to teach the best ways
Taught by the best in its eyes all because you allowed it to roam and face certain facts 
Existence whether good or bad must be fought for on its own

Biography of A Dream

Biography of A Dream 
Arabic Poem by: Abdulsadah Al-Basri
Translated into English by:
Inaam Al-Hashimi (Gold_N_Silk)
The end of the first decade 
Of the twentieth century 
The sun bathed in my father’s eyes 
He kept flirting with her 
And flirting..
to draw a dream on her silken rays   
A dream accompanied him all his life.
 In the fourth decade  
 He got married 
To build a nest in the heart of the countryside, 
Then begot a little bird 
And three   
Taught them how to fly with love 
Over the waves of the river 
And how to long for the bread
Baked in the outdoors tandoor 

But .. 
In the eighth decade of the same century 
He departed overwhelmed by grief
Over a dream
That would never come true

Lost a Dream

Lost a dream did I,
the only dream ever had I.
How happy would I,
happy on my wedding day
if ever had I,
a diamond on my finger.

Lost a dream did I,
the day he proposed to I,
I looked at him in the eye,
and said I wasn't ready
he cried to I,
I'd regret it forever.

Lost a dream have I,
the only dream I ever had.

can't tell

i close my eyes
and i see your face in my dreams, 
outside my door 
you were standing staring back at me. 
i never thought i'd feel this way , 
it been a long time honey 

i cant find the right words to say
how and why i feel this way.
i thought it was just a silly game we played.
we both agreed and said "come what may"

each other's company was overwhelming.
strange but very amusing.
we played fire and danced in the rain
who would have thought i'd be smiling again.

Dream on

I dream on, from my dome to my chest
to my toes and to the tips of my palms. 
We dream on, in the land of the free,  
but where freedom comes at a cost and 
sacrifice for others the achieve their dream. 
I dream on, flying over an icy mountain top,  
To the sweat taste of lemon drops,  
To the cool relief of mist burning over a  
desert black top as I brain storm lessening 
to heart beat of my favorite song.
We dream on, from the top of 
lonely tropical island hill top  
to the sit and the smell of a breath
taking Forrest and to a falling
sun afflicting a shining sea
that is the best part of the day 
I rather spend ending enjoying with a beautiful
woman... the sit and the breeze.

I was dreaming

When I woke up in the morning                                                               
I saw nothing this serene                                                                   
Then I tried to recall everything                                                         
But nothing seemed so clean

I was dreaming of you; my love

Walked up next to a glassy window                                               
Looked on everything near and far                                                        
Tried to remember you & I always do                                              
For the lovely person you are                                                                          
I was dreaming, I was dreaming                                                          
I was dreaming of you; my love

But then I saw a purpose                                                                   
All over my dream                                                                                 
It seemed like I had a paradise                                                       
Settled on me                                                                                  
You and me dancing                                                                      
People all watching                                                                           
Holding hands in this dream                                                               
Making a happy move                                                                           
As we walk down and groove                                                       
Everything seems so clean

I was dreaming, I was dreaming

Close your eyes and dream with me

Close your eyes and dream with me

the way things are suppose to be

the Love inside will set us free.

Close your eyes and dream with me

the way things are suppose to be

the burdens we carry lets share today

Lets do things in our Lords way.

Close your eyes and dream with me

lets walk in the way He made us to be.

Close your eyes and hear His voice

things are crazy in this world of pain

close your eyes and let Him lead

also help me see His truth in me.

My life bounces back and forth

close your eyes and dream with me

on how things are suppose to be.

Help us Lord to live free

in your way,please reveal

Your heart to me.

Close your eyes and dream with me

Take my hand and walk with me

to the ends of the earth

show our true worth

His love in us,

this is the way its suppose to be.

Close your eyes and dream with me.

Dream A Little

Sleep comes and takes me gracefully,
Into a world where you found me.
Opposites attract in a sea of faces,
Hot shot and a freak fallen from graces.
The king and a pawn placed on the board,
Equally sipping from the glasses poured.
Passion with chaos in a world of rush,
Eyes find connections in a silent hush.
Wonders like rainbows on stars do fly,
Feet on the ground but I feel high.
It could have been that smile you gave,
for one look and I am became love's slave.
It could have been your strong stride,
Every move you make you radiate pride.
Like foam on the sea I want to be on you,
But worlds apart there is nothing I can do.
For I know I was dreaming, now I wake,
It's this feeling for you, I just can't shake.
Dreams they linger in my mind for a while,
At least I woke up with a simply loved smile.

She loves me, maybe not

She loves me, maybe not
Behind silver, she’s shining 
We may not be allowed to engage but we've done it, 
With pride we've made it,
Forcefully, we've bonded. 
Let me trace the pace that we faced.
This is Africa, homos are sinners, 
Westerns are tractors
And illegal partners are deceivers. 
She loves me, maybe not
We met at work, coincidentally we became friends,
I hate to admit that your face was cuter that the earth itself,
Your body was made with love and peace, 
No wonder you glow at night, and shine during daylight.
She confessed, I entertained, she came closer I froze, 
My heart beating louder than drums, I felt warn air coming, I was hoping we won’t exchange breath and interlock because we both have boyfriends.
From that moment our lips told each other a secret, we knew we kissed and we love it.
Like thieves we sneaked, escaping from our partners to be together, 
Her boyfriend knew that we were close friends, my boyfriend, knew that my friend comes first.
When she sees me with my BF she freak out, when we kiss, her face turns pink, when I give him a kiss goodbye, she walks away.
Surely this is more than lust,  
We text we delete, we hate we love, we desire, we pressure, 
And flout, we freeing, we pretend it never happened but we end up on the same spot,
Repeating everything that our surrounding hates,    
My second lover is a woman, 
You may criticize, rejects and hate but our love is pure,
She knows the buttons to press, the music to sing and the melody to play when I’m sad,
I’m neither gay nor rebellious; I’m in love with a woman and man.
Maybe she does love me

Thank you for the beautiful memory
you left on my mind
you are not dead
 but you are not here,

to me you are gone,
cos i cant feel you the way i used to,
everything you used to do are left untouched
the space you ocupied is empty,

our yesterday is fading away like the rainbow
so beautiful but so short,
how can i forget the endless yesterday?
when you are here with me.

in loving memory of my sister (you are not an angel but you did what an angel can do,you fly to heaven.)

Can't Love be with me for once

Can't Love be with me for once

in my life.

Can't Love for once in my life

see the way I live

and accept me for who I am

and not for what I possess.

I have seen love bounce back and forth

through the darkened streets of life

and I sat on the park benches,


I can't wait till love comes again

but can't love just be with me for once

and live with me, embrace me, to see me late at night,

come through the doors of perception.

Can't Love be with me for once

throughout the valleys of sorrow and depression

and shine its glorious face onto me,

like the first morning rays of the sun at dawn.

I cannot understand, why

Love can't just be with me for once...


I ask you, why?

Can't Love just laugh, and talk to me

Can't the arrow of Cupid find me already.

I have found my time, now I have no love.

The beauty of Plato's words that melt of the page

as you read word for word, and my heart melts away.

Why can't love just be with me for once,

once in a great, blue moon.

Too walk through the dew sprinkled, dawn days in August

as I walk to my chamber

and ready to love,

but love can't be found.

Can't love just come already.

Show its pretty face,

Hold my hand,

kiss me and I kiss back,

to read a book of poetry to her

as she lays in my arms,

and then we shall make love

under the twilight.

The stars shall shine

the moon shall be bright and full

and I shall find love one day.

One lonely day, as I sit in the wayward cafe

drinking my sorrows away,

writing my poetry

and love shall walk through that door

I shall find her and take her by the hand

and kiss her upon her soft cheek.

I just ask,

Why can't love just be with me for once.

Forbidden Love

I wake up thinking off you from the time I open my eyes till the time I shut them,
You’ve taken over me, binding me with chains that I can’t break through,
I feel I’m in a dream that I can’t wake up from,
I long to let go of you, but that would only crush me.

I see you everywhere I go,
Like a shadow the thought of you follows me,
I crave to get closer to you yet I know that our love is forbidden,
I must wake up from this dream and declare my forbidden love, before I lose my 
mind completely.

 I see you pass by me every day,
The most beautiful visage I have ever seen,
Your looks alone make me wonder whether I’m in heaven,
Or you’re just an angel that lives among us.

The mere sight of you makes my darkest day seem like a lost memory,
Your scent makes me sway into slumber I don’t want to wake up from,
Your voice rings in my head like a mystical instrument trying to entrance me,
You make me want to live inception and never come out.

Trying to let go of you makes me desire you even more,
Forcing me to walk a path with a dead end,
I’ve lost my mind completely; I can’t live without you any longer,
I shall declare our forbidden love to the world.

I’ve finally woken up from this dream,
I’ve broken the chains that your love had bound me with,
I’m a free man with a voice to declare his forbidden love,
But shall you accept it my dear?

Drowning in a whirlpool of emotions,
With my warm tears and the sounds of my screams to accompany me,
I’ve fallen back into the dream, but this time you’re not with me,
For you’ve shattered me into pieces, piercing me with a blunt knife the day you took 
my love and turned it into a joke.

Tale of a mermaid

Along with the rising of the sun Sea and sky hand in hand in blue Creating a faint line of illusion, A boundaries of the real and unreal. There was a mermaid dancing with the waves Her long golden hair magically shiny, A true flawless unnatural beauty. She waited for the lonely souls; Who doze in the dream of eternal love Who needs to be saved from nothingness Souls who stray in search of peace. Since the era of the gods, she has lived, And so her story will continue to live. In the dreams of every sailor.

Faded Life

Stuck in a situation, Not knowing what to do? Blocked from all directions, Tired of being sick, throwing and feeling weak, The people I thought I can trust walked away, I am tired of selfish people, I am tired of being alone and fighting this without any support, When this should be your responsibility too! All you want to do party and play, I am tired of facing problems one after another, I need peace, relax and have nothing to worry, Yet you bring hell to me! All you care about is you and your career, While I give my life and risk everything for us & baby, I give up my family, my car and now I am broke and homeless, And all you care about is you and your dreams, It bothers me how you think & blind to see, My dreams and goals for my life is in the trash can, You keep asking for respect yet you cant even understand your women, Without a cause there is no effect, I just wish you would understand that! This is not about who wins or looses! This is about us fixing problems togather as ONE!

Cave In

Perhaps the way the universe planned it to be
She discovered me randomly
Crossing her path, overdosed on reality
N now I’m stumbling over fantasies
Of her butterscotch skin n cognac eyes
Stealing my sobriety when she showed me that smile
While I’m on this mind trip
Riding on my brakes cos I know I might accelerate
Rush into tomorrow while barely stepping out of yesterday
I kno it’s best to make the most of the present
In unwrapping her identity, I got so close to heaven
I had to check my pulse for a second
How we had so much in common
Our conversations were poetry, rhyming
Lines that I tightroped, tryin not to fall… between
Not cos my chances of gettin caught were weak
But, after all, her existence was hard to believe
I’ve seen many angels but they never bothered wit me
Never gave me that slow dance I wildly craved
So as our bodies embraced n melodically swayed
In n out of my imagination
I hope she didn’t witness my erotic inclinations
Cos I was thinkin
If forever only lasted the rest of the night
That I got the chance to go deep, so deep I touched her next life
Cos she’s TOO perfect, prolly a ruse
The universe is
Pulling on me
N I’m choosing to cave in
Cos never have I seen
Such a beautiful hallucination

My Love Intended

My love intended for the girl of my dreams,
she walks from side to side,
not knowing that I walk alone.

She is beautiful than any other thing in this simple world,
everything around her shakes and trembles
as she walks on by without a spare of a passing glance.

The wine is drunk
the last cigarette smoked,
the pain of heartache gone away.

It feels good to see her go my way,
to take the pain with her away from me,
as I sit in the wayward cafe on the river of ashes.

A beautiful girl she is mine,
but that course of life shall no surpass mine,
and my heart beats and takes me away
in hope of falling in love.

Irony of love and hate,
it is similar in many ways,
as I sit and think of her.

She angers me,
but when the vail of anger falls over my eyes,
the passion of love enters my mind.

Come now, take me away,
hold me in your beauty,
and love me with your gentle body.

Go into the gardens,
where the nightingales sing,
and sit at the patio's crossway.

Watch the artists paint pictures of the garden,
watch the writers write about the garden,
and watch us go and pick flowers in the garden.

The air smooth and wind breeze calms the nerves,
the pain of my sorrowed heart is soothed,
by her sweet intellegence and beauty.

Her eyes, orbs of blazing sunlight,
blind me with the beauty of her beauteous face,
her lips and skin smooth and pure.

She is glorious,
My love she is the dream girl,
who comes and takes my nightmares away from me.

As I sit on the park benches,
I light my last cigarette,
and reminicse on the days with my love.

I close my tired eyes only for a moment,
and the moment is gone,
my beauty is gone.

The tears are all gone,
the pain has gone,
the feelings of everlasting love are all gone.

Where did it all go?
Where did my beauty go?
Where did my love go?

All gone now, all gone now,
as I grow old,
the feeling of death takes me by surprise.

The park bench is cold,
the cigarette is burnt out,
I am longing for a drink.

I lay in a wayward cafe
drink a coffee and talk to myself
discussing a book of poetry.

Looking over to the right
I am blinded by beauty once again
this time this is no dream.

Alas, my dream girl came
that appeared in my sunny pleasure dome,
who has walked barefoot in the gardens of my mind.

She sat with me,
I looked at her
and we smiled together.

We held hands together,
and dreamed together,
forever and ever.

Love everlasting,
everything everlasting,
cigarettes smoked together.

A cloud over our heads
in the shape of a heart
my love.

Stardust Wink

In louver I waited ‘til night confined the sky
Incandescent stardust once made me starry-eyed
That tempestuous evening hid the Milky Way
Nocturnal beetle mimicked pristine light that I prayed

In a flick, my desire to see you restrained by distance
I just clutched to stargazing to show me moments of you
An interlude to make feelings in alliance
Where kisses and hugs are free to view

Lurking in the sky, time held its breath
As my eyes glowed luxurious in our love affairs
My heart sang louder to clamor the light in stealth
In flower’s scent enchanted time as I stared

For I knew evening panorama would soon disappear
Last moment I spoke lover’s prayer so powerful
As stars tried filching a moment to appear so near
Came pouring stardust in my longing to reunite with your soul

Moonlight Invitation


Awake in dream time
I slip on restless slippers,
tiptoe from slumber,           *
at the moon’s invitation,
delivered with dappled light.
Night embraces me,
and moonlight reassures me,
giving me comfort,                       *
knowing that somewhere, out there,
you dream under the same moon.

Each night we fall into this everlasting dream spell. eternal love eternal peace a promise made true by the goddess Aphrodite herself...

Hazel Eyes and a Cute Smile

I met an angel today,
in the bright sunshine
as houses burnt down
and the fire department showed up to
ash and dust, rubble of the past.

She was beautiful,
with starlight Hazel eyes and 
a cute smile.
Her teeth shinned bright like pearls,
her skin soft like velvet and 
a beautiful figure.

The sun shined behind her
and as she smiled my heart stopped
and I fell to my knees.
She walked up to me
and she let out a hand.
I reached and she pulled me to my feet.
I pulled her close,
went in for a sweet kiss on the lips
and indeed she did not resist.

I kissed an angel with hazel eyes
and a cute smile,
I opened my eyes and found
I was looking at a ceiling
and a fan blew cool air on me
and felt around.
I was in my bed,
white sheets tangled around my feet,
a cool sweat rolled down my forehead
and I clenched at my bed sheets
and cursed the sun for ever rising
and awaking me from that beautiful encounter
of that angel with those hazel eyes
and cute smile.

Come with me, my friend,
Together a better world 
To built:
A more compassionate world
For me
For you 
For our children 
For all of us!
A difficult task it is
I declare, 
An impossible undertaking
The centuries of old may 
More centuries ahead wait
To be born, 
Innocent centuries 
Pure millennia  
We must not betray their trust
In us!

Let us, therefore, begin 
Building this magnificent world 
Of our dreams: 
Let us not disappoint
The promising future!

Tell me,
Is there a nobler duty?
A holier undertaking? 
A more righteous and sacred 
Mission than this?
Is there anything else 
More aspired by men
More loved by God? 

Do not linger any longer,
Let us DARE!
You and I, together 
Let's start this superb
We owe it to humanity
Present and future,
Let us lay the foundations of this
Glorious edifice TODAY 
Let us alter the history of
Mankind forever
Taking the first step
Ourselves to CHANGE!

I dream dreams of beautiful things, things that I love to see and feel. I dream of waterfalls and see the sparkle of sunlight through the water that from its radiant color forms a rainbow and hear the rush of wind as it falls far below. I think of a flower and dream of the perfect nature of a petal, the sprinkling of color so perfectly settled.. uplifting in its nature. I see birds soaring in the sky and dream of their soft call as they seek another from far away. I dream of one who loves me as deeply as I love her and dream of her touch on my bare skin and feel the warm caress of parted lips. I dream of a baby sleeping quietly in its bed and see the faint smile on its face as it dreams likewise of butterflies skipping across cloudless skies. I think of children, and dream of their running across a field and hear them arguing over who was the fastest of them all. It's been written that we can dream but, not let dreams become our master. I am enslaved to my dreams... shameless and unafraid, I dream dreams and bow to my master.

Moonbeam Dreams

It’s when the night settles in
and the bridge collapses at one end
that you pull me in and let me drift
on moonbeams soothing glow….

You pull me away to another land
where dreamers join, hearts in hand,
drifting on love….hopes expanding
realities calmed…pain releasing

It’s here, it’s now, where we stand  
Time defacing the clock of its hands
Racing around on a comet’s tail
As even in death, love still prevails

Gently as the morning mist sound
you return my heart to solid ground
Dewdrop released replacing the tears
A new day brighter to face the fears

The afterglow of sleep receding
My love for you, never depleting

I feel you beating thready and weak..
I feel you murmuring me to stop..
I feel you throbbing softly aghast..

Why did we trust and give in so fast?
We should have guessed things doesn't last..
We should have been careful for things casts..

Will you get some more little rest..
So long, I do not like you again be on test..
I do not like you more on mess...

Follow me, I'm above you..
I know which one is better for you..
I learned from past and present blues..
Indeed, I'm knowledgeable enough for the cues..

I speak kindly to you..
Kindly mind me once..
This the mind pleading and speaking...

Keep on like you do

I love our conversations day to day
I laugh at the awkwardness in the hall
I love how you are mine, my sweet blue jay
If this were a movie the snow would fall

The perfect scene that everyone desires
The paramount picture movie nights out
I love that this love does not require
Sadness and despair, the miserable pout

I want to see you as you always are
I want to laugh and share my memories
So you call to me, and I won’t be far
I want to cheer and hear your melodies

For it is a rose in any other name
I am foolish, but who am I to blame?

New found friendship in the darkest areas
But it’s not like we are from dark places
You are the light that disrupts hysteria
There’s no need to hide under fake faces

Thank you, my search for that place is finished
That place where loneliness finally dies
That place where joy is, as it should, cherished
That place where despair meets its true demise

I no longer have to travel today
To travel to that place where sadness ends
Because I have found that place, my blue jay
So from now on, what we do shall depend

Shall we travel together tomorrow
To keep fighting everlasting sorrow

What I say and do I mean completely
What I say to you I mean with honesty
But Please do not take my words so feebly
Don’t shrink in front of the face of modesty

You are marvellous, true in every way
You are graceful, so keep dancing like you
You are beautiful, so smile my blue jay
Smile and I shall be marvellous with you

Please take my words to heart, never forget
They are nothing but spectators tonight
You are the main attraction, don’t leave yet
You will rock, no need to be polite right?

You are awesome in each and every way
You are pretty no matter what they say

Beautiful Children

Singing around in love;
Smiles built from the ground.
Holding hands in the dance;
Laughing with brothers and sisters,
All in His Glorious Name.
Throughout His perfectly sculpted land:
Look around because this is it;

Look around and know, understand, comprehend,
Rejoice because you are perfect;
You are God's beautiful children!

Just To

Another night,
spaghetti just for one.
My hand is empty
as I watch the setting of the sun

I wasn't kicked in my sleep,
no one latched onto me.
No hair in my face,
making it itch.
I don't call on the phone
because there's no one that I miss

Every day, it is the same.
This place is all too quiet
and everyday, this hole to fill
Love I'd like to try it

To love and be loved
is my dream of
all I really need.
To love and be loved
a wondrous dream of
and in it is,
where I want to be

To wake up in the morning
and not be alone.
To have someone there,
to share in my home.
To be missed when I'm away.
It would be so much more fun if,
someone else was here to play.

To love and be loved,
I'd love it so much.
To love and be loved
with a great warming touch.

And I know that I would
that I'd be good
and that I can
If someone was here
Just someone here
to hold my hand.

Write letters in crayon
my light it would stay on
Dinners for two
with a candle lit view
of our staring eyes

Long walks together
butterflies felt forever
and right where we are
there's  a bright shooting star
lighting up our skies

There's so much more,
more than I could ever say
And I would give all I had
just to feel

that way

To love and be loved
a far off dream of.
To love and be loved.
Maybe if I want it
If I want it just enough.

Grey Bird

On that cloudy weekend in June 
I hear a soft and graceful tune 
from the grey bird on the tree 
Singing sweet lullabies felt 
blessed in the moment 
My body tingles of joy at sight 
Gazing out through 
my open door,
Letting thoughts fly free
Releasing love out into the horizon 
Heart filled with emotion came 
over me 
Grey bird stood playing its tune 
for awhile and on the wings of 
letting go
Then as the rain fell from the 
sky the grey bird flew away 
I blew a kiss to the clouds and 
utterd these simple words of I 
Love You father ( who's now in 
heaven ) and yet I hope to hear 
that grey bird sing again once 
more for me 
Farewell, love your son

Her Face

Her Face was perfection, Still see it everywhere
The beauty in her eyes, Please forgive my stare
Though to confess my love, 
Oh no, I wouldn't dare...
So I'll just keep thinking of her, But it's just not fair

Her Face won't go away, So engrained in my mind
This girl was different, Unlike any other I'll ever find
Oh how the two of us, 
How our lives could've aligned...
So now, to everyone else, My heart is blind

But she'll never know,
Just what I would've done to be with her!
That I'd gladly travel through time and space
Just to appreciate her beauty,
And wake next to Her Face

Her Face comforts me, Holds me tight and dear
Takes me to another world, A new frontier
I'm dreaming where she loves me so much, 
That part is clear...
But as I awake, Just shed another tear

Her Face and her love, I won't ever forget
Lust for her will remain, Lips will get wet
I'll be reminded of her, 
At each days sunset...
And I'll remember everything, From the first day we met

But she'll never know,
Just what I would've done to be with her!
That I'd gladly travel through time and space
Just to appreciate her beauty,
And wake next to Her Face

Her Face is the sunshine, A universal light
With it's soul and it's passion, It was quite a sight
Oh how just to see her, 
Brought me such delight...
But here I am all alone now, Another late night

Her Face will surely lift someone up, With unconditional love
So what will come of me, Can I rise above?
Without Her Face, 
I'm unsure thereof...
Because see, out of my mind, to her, I'll never shove

And she'll never know,
Just what I would've done to be with her!
That I'd gladly travel through time and space
Just to appreciate her beauty,
And wake next to Her Face

Her Face, I see it every night, In my dreams
Where everything will all align, Oh how it seems
We're walking together... 
Hands together, Along the forests blue streams

Her Face ignited feelings, Things I've never before felt
Just got to play the hand, The cruel hand I was dealt
I will always have my writing, 
To continue to dwell...
On a lost love to whom one day, I would've knelt

Sweet Melody

Your Love knows... 
No distance, 
nor comparison, 
against others,

but yours, 
where it will last,

high above cloud, 
to send nothing but,
sweet kisses,
of white sugar,
 to the lips,
I destine to,
softly kiss...

I have love.
I am perfectly happy.

relaxed I am
I do not stress
for there isn't life

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

The Rain

Do you want stars or do you want rain clouds?
Sway and if the music stops,
Answer before the next tune,
I will hear your heart’s desire
Star lights or raindrops?
Let me hold your waist and you hold my hand,
Dancing from star to star,
Night eyes watching us
Every pace we made,
forever near and never afar…
This is the first time or this happened before?
Sitting on the flight of the stair,
Leaning on the each other
Like cards building a castle,
When the rain washed the despair?
Sliding tears of sadness or sliding tears of joy?
Both for me are just the same,
When you are sad and lonely
You search my arms to hide,
Then you give to joy my name.

Sweet love
All I see is your sweet love
When I dream it’s your sweet love
When I walk in my sleep

All I need is your sweet love
All I’ll be is your sweet love

troubles may follow us on our way
But-- I’ll --never leave you

Whatever they say 

All we need is our sweet love
All we'll dream is our sweet love
When we walk in our sleep

Reaching You

From the moment I saw you,
I'd never stop on dreaming about you.
Every night I watch the skies,
Wishing there I'll see your smile.

And when I reach the stars up high,
I suddenly realized..
Oh, they were so bright
As bright as your eyes

But, I know I'll never be with you
So tonight I'd rather sing this poem for you

Like the stars in the sky
You're so hard to reach
And I don't know why
You're like the stars in the sky
Feels so near but seems too high
Like the stars in the sky
Yea, you've made me smile
Even for a while
But I don't know why
And I have to face the truth
You'll never be mine
Like the stars in the sky
That will never be mine

For You I Was Made

For You I Was Made
My eyes are midnight blue 
And my heart is aglow for you
But Lucia is my given name

I’m six foot two and five rows
Behind you but anywhere around you
Is where I wish to reign

I am a quiet gentle man with strong hands
And I have a long ashen mane

Each night I dream of softly
Kissing your rosebud lips
And hourglass hips
Until I do I’ll 
Go wildly insane

When I sleep at night 
As I dream of you each night
I yearn to lick your sweetness
Like a striped candy cane

If only one night I could ride you
Like a long midnight train

Please don’t pull away
From me because I’m  
 plain insane

Eventually my love for you will surely
Bring me great shame

My fire for you is so raging hot
To quench it 
Please let the skies 
Pour with rain

We could spend eternity together
But still my passion for
You could never be contained

Because your laughter shoots
Me to a higher star
Filled celestial plain

Your bronze dusted 
Amber eyes draw me
To your golden heart vein

Each day I know you’re on the earth
I strut proudly with my head high
Like an elegant wood crane

From your heavenly jasmine scent
I shall never abstain

Please be gentle with me
I’m your vigilant servant
And when it comes 
To worshiping you
I have no shame

My love for your beauty and
Charms shall never wane

For you
My heart and soul
Was made.

Leave me with my dreams

Leave me with my dreams
Cause I’m a dreaming fellow
Leave me here a pondering
With mind all calm and mellow
Picturing a better world
Where evil is no more
Let me dream of the harmony
Of a world all free of war.

It might never happen
Sometimes it seems to me
That a tadpole has more chance
Of swimming in the deep blue sea
But let me dream about it
It makes my heart feel warm
Let me dream of a world at peace
And this it be the norm.

Leave me with my dreaming
Of peace and harmony
Where God will rest within each heart
And a perfect world will be
Where everywhere becomes a space
Of sweetest liberty.

Leave me with my dreams
Maybe they’ll seep into you
Then peace and harmony might reign
In everything you do
I guess that someone has to dream
For something to be born
So if more folk did get to dreaming
There might be a brand new dawn.

Sleep, Think, and Dream myself to you, 
is what I do out of devotion. 
Long lingers of school buses and 
library books that took us and taught us "home". 
A word which became more for meeting you, 
and harder to remember for knowing you so well. 
Yet I often slip from reality and indulge this 
false definition, derived from the optimism 
of a  hopeful heartbeat.

Then I wander through the wonder years, 
and cherished moments of selfless smiles 
and obvious affection, poorly cloaked 
by friendship and often revealed in a series 
of glances, that taught me the reason 
behind a prayer. Abating the sting of every 
melancholy thought, and transforming the 
diffident words of a silly boy, into beautiful
 phrases of endearment, 
offered to a woman from a man.

Thus, I dream of you as the virus and 
the remedy, dark and bright that keeps 
my mind balanced. Pondering a poison 
by daylight, and recalling the cure by nightfall. 
Drowning in your absence and breathing by 
the sight of closed eyes, that grant me a reason 
to inhale deeply and exhale slowly, during a held 
moment of pure elation. Running from reality 
until rest arrives, allowing me another chance 
to sleepwalk my way back,

Love On A Black Horse

She's a curse and a blessing.
A giving of wings and a damnation.
The sins of her soul are calling,
Amidst a beautiful song of loving version.
Her demons they dance in unison,
Her angels blow their horns in rhythmic cords.
She'll suck your poison and seal your burden,
Lifting your heart onto the saddle of a black horse.
She'll ride you into the sunset lulling you to sleep,
Whispering promises of a life laden with dreams.
A land where, within soil, innocent blood runs deep.
Trees are withered and barren glowing in moonbeams.
Her mask will fall away and she'll begin to screech.
Her hair will fall in cobras, hissing and baring their teeth.
Your fingers will ache to grab the reigns still out of reach.
The earth will shudder, overflow, and crack beneath.
Millions of sinning souls will fill the chrispened air.
Your mind will want to believe this is only fiction.
As you sink into blood soaked earth, you despair.
Love is not always lifting. It's a decaying addiction.

'I dream of you in your world far from here'

I dream of you in your world far from here.
To not be there, it cuts like broken glass.
I'd end this pain, my love, had I the brass
to quench my need for you to be so near.
Without you here, I wilt in this austere,
comfortless zone of uncreative mass,
stifled, crushed by the unyielding impasse
of knowing I may never enter your sphere.
Were I a wind--a breeze! a zephyr!--I'd
ride the heavens till I light on your lap
and then there with you forever abide
as if betwixt us there were ne'er a gap.
     I swear; for us,  I'd move heaven and God
     as sure as men do plod!

Candy Horse Vs Dark Kid

The center of a star reflects just like a diamond...
Returning a pearl within each silver breath that one treasures...
With faceted panels, I promised I'd never...
Sweep over a deep sea of blue waves unmeasured...

There is a pattern woven inside golden petals that kiss the inside of my heart...
Parts of my heart that I've thus' failed to start...
With soft fingers dancing, you're forever entrancing...
My star that's eternally far...

A co write written by Liam and Christian

They ride the good dragon-cloud towards warm light
While wistful wind was a wrongdoer on the hollow hill
Wrapped woven from the wounds and wrath`s night, 
The wood will wear white woolly witness of the windmill.

Hoarfrost hitch-hikes and hoists with hoarse hood,
Drumming beat of hobble of the army`s fatal feet,
Far away from the glow-worms of their childhood;
Friends fumble the glassware where they might meet.

Falteringly frogs of fancy jump towards the lake’s glass; 
Orphan souls sit on the steps of hope in winter`s time
They scrutinize the frozen sky of hope to find the rhyme 
Of the verse from the other side they want to happily pass.

To My Heartbeat

Dear Dearest,
I do know fate is not cruel
And so are our souls.
I know sky will remain crystal clear
Until our hearts sing alive.
I know that stars will remain glint
And they would sign treasures to our dream.
I know the same way my heart beats...
So is yours too.
I know we're fashioned to be 
Though our destinations seem far-
I live north, you live south.
I know you don't sway without thinking about me.
And so do I.
The only memory you left me with in here-
Pen and paper,
Are what I polish my feelings through.
I do hope my words won't take days before they'd be returned.
It's well with my soul here you left it.

From your part in here and right there.

Everlasting Light

Once upon a time you said to me,
How you loved to be with me,
I believed you for a while.
With every kiss you gave to me,
I knew that we were meant to be.
I moved away and you were bitter,
And your love began to wither.
Your love for me will never be,
But mine will still remain.
I cry at night longing for you,
I dream about you.
And wish you were mine,
So I could kiss you just one more time.
I miss you so,
I wish you were here.
I love you, I love you dear.
I sleep with the rabbit you gave to me,
I long for you to hold me.
My life now is not complete,
Without you my heart hurts to beat.
The last day I saw you,
You took me in your arms,
And whispered to me,
How you would miss me,
And dream of me for many years.
The last kiss you gave to me,
Was the best one of my life.
Then I knew,
You would be my everlasting light.

Through Your Soul

Pardon me for this intrusion
But after all it’s my illusion

So I guess it’s up to me
Who and what I shall be

So as I crack another grin
Over the situation I am in

Read these words of my truth
We are as old as our youth

Age is certainly no reason why
Grab a dream and kiss the sky

Winner is I have been told
He who holds all the Gold

Let me add one small detail
I think gold will melt in hell

I traded in my Midas touch
A pot of Gold for a crutch

That’s all ok I don’t even care
I earned the grey in my hair

I earned the wisdom in my truth
Making Poetry my fountain of youth

I reflect on what my life shall be
Grab a dream and dance with me

We will dance from star to star
Embracing who and what we are

Maybe we will stop by the moon
So our dance won’t end to soon

Kicking us up a little dust
Shaking off a little rust

Then back to earth for a while
I sure do love the way you smile

Eyes dancing with pure delight
As they meet with mine tonight

Take my breath and words away
Tell me my love what could I say

Give me love or give me death
Come closer let me taste your breath

Let me feel your every move
Soft, slow, tender and smooth

Come explode with me today
As through your soul I softly play

The Canvas of Night

The Canvas of Night

Stars like sprinkled sugar,
lay strewn across the canvas of night,

enthralled by the wonder of the cosmos,
my dreams take to the heavens in effervescent flight,

I bathe in the beauty, soaked in sublime delight,
absorbed in moments of bliss, transfixed by the serene sight.

Stars like sprinkled sugar,
lay strewn across the canvas of night,

and my being is infused with feelings of hope,

for even in darkness  I find the sprinkled sugar of hope's light.

note: special thanks to one of my heroes, the late Dr. Carl Sagan, for making science accessible to younger me, many, many moons ago.

Promising Heart

You've waited for a love so deep in my heart and soul.
I stay up at nights, to wait till' I can talk to you, more!
Loving you is a dream forever and a wish upon a star,
But your love is much more than, I can only love you, from afar!

I remember when we talked, and how you asked me to marry you.
For a minute, I've been thinking, is this for real too?
We've been friends for a year, with a romance of a true love,
Now you're my whole life, I'll marry you and become your wife!

Thank you, my darling, with all the love you've given me,
So, you'll soon be my husband, forever to be!
"I love you dearly", as I will wait and dream of you,
Until we meet, God will guide us to unite as one, soon!

Dream of Maracana

Again the drums of samba
Playing in Maracana stadium
The dream is again in Maracana
As the flags golden Shine
With the sun
at the green in the field
Look this wren in the fly

Garrnicha is the dream

Embraced the blue of the of ocean
He drunk the beams of the sun
Rio is the dream
Dream and the passion of the ocean
In a little wren

Look the wren in the fly
Garrnicha is the dream

See the field is waiting
to make the dream
true and real
So fly Naymo wren

In my memory you stand proud and tall
There you beckon, and I answer your call

In the past, in times gone by
You were all I needed to launch and fly

Your hand reaches out to grasp and hold
My fears are gone, I'm left but bold

Your eyes shine bright, cheeks blush fire
The time is mine to climb ever higher

I wrap my arms about you tight
And pretend you're mine, to hold tonight

Your caresses are soft, gentle tinder
To ignite the flame which now I hinder

But now I wake from a dream I savor
To find it fading, gone-but for a waver

We are gone, no more to be us
It all has faded away to dust

The cracks are evident in the crust
Yet this memory is crackling, is rust

As days flow past, I move a bit further
I make new memories that will yours murder

You are gone to never return
I remain here yet, become taciturn

She is not you, she will be better
Yet still you hold me in memorial tether

Release me Pechenya* this day this hour
From years gone by, our withered flower

They blossomed and flared, sparked so bright
It's all gone now to deepening night

I cannot remain and be beholden
To a past gone by, a dream long broken

What I wanted, I thought I needed
Are here present now and cry to be heeded

Your graceful fingers in life as in past
Hold me prisoner, an iron heart cast

Her eyes are warm, beg me consider
A here and now of future unfettered

Tonight I bend my head and bow 
To your lost love, your long gone power

Yet tomorrow she'll be there, to hope to care
Tomorrow she'll bear, what you wouldn't dare
She's here to tare*, what you told me to fare
I'm here now at last, sin thought, sin cere*
Your hold so rare must be now pared*
Goodbye and be banished....

To your lair.

* Pechenya - Russian, translated here as a pet name, "cookie"

*Tare - "the weight of a vehicle without cargo, passengers, etc"

*sin cere - Latin, pronounced "sin-sair" - meaning "without cheat, falsehood, lies,"
meaning complete honesty

*pared - "to remove by or as if by cutting, clipping, or shaving"

Illumined Tapestry

Circled light from angels' faces dawning
traces the darkening way all feet must tread,
reflecting forgotten silhouettes on rain wet streets.

Old city lights beam bright pathways through the gloom,
resplendent pools shimmering luminous enchantment,
mirroring tear washed memories of distant pasts.

Buried beneath regret-slick brick roadways,
specters gather round glowing gas lamps--
modern street lights' ancestral flames--
ghost lovers lingering in shining orbed dreams, remembering . . .
trembling vaporous fingers tracing love across softly illumined faces.

So linked in melancholic splendor, lovers old and new,
ply life's sacred needle, stitching the golden tapestry.

I am small never been tall..
I take risk but i scare to fall..
I put my heart as well as my soul..
Ultimately and completely my all...

They said i have a big amazing heart..
What they don't know it's only like a quart..
I love the character and the art..
These all that i always regard..

Hugs and kisses are for free..
These are simple gestures, for free..
I do not want nor need any fee..
Wholeheartedly, i'll be doing it with glee..

I give as much as i can give...
I love as much as i can love..
All i know is that i have only one life to live...
Whatever, i desire to do i will now...

For if i may not do it now...
There might come a time..
I will regret why i did not do...

The darkness of light impossible to see the pain and the lies always damaging you reach and get burned not understanding this is my disease nature of the beast Suddenly my light is taken away my darkness was revealed taking me as slave when all I ever wanted was for someone to say please stop, for me or enter an early grave Now face to face with all of my demons how can I fight them if I don't want to beat them until the reason arrives, then I shine a little at first but that small thing, is mine The den of ten thieves come up with a plan a whole set of new lies that every single man cannot resist believing it's seeming to be that a horrific ending is just what I need Then all of the sudden my small shine swallows time and with that virtue my face comes to life I would never hurt you please, know this to be yet no one believes me this curse grows like a tree I hate my helpless fate why can't I make a new life for me that no one can take why can't I escape a prison not for me for years I accept this tired sense of defeat The small shine barely intact, inside until Saint Anger starts to burn me, alive I find I'm set off by my wrong, senseless self until I am talking to no one, in Hell So I pick up my pen power to create a new world for me where I design my escape in my invisible state the Devil don't notice that one of his children is no longer hopeless I stop all my madness by power of pen for years my sword drew nothing but sin the yin and the yang both helped me to find that I'm no longer afflicted when darkness lights my bright shine.

Beyond Unspoken

Beyond Unspoken

Beyond all fears this day must come, she dies my end as well. 
Was it just a glimpse in time; a dream a magic spell
Arrested by your vision pure from lost begins, awoken.
You were the one my heart longed for, a dream beyond unspoken
I’d wondered if my rescue comes in this world or the next
I’d lost all hope to see love's face but soul’s perplexed.
But now all hope has died for “us”, retiring to my darkness
Joy a distant memory replaced with pain and starkness.
I did so love you spent my heart, holding nothing in reserve, 
one day for your sake I do pray you’ll  give what you deserve.

Never Take Hate Outside

When you're hurt inside,
And there's no where to hide,
And there's no one on your side,
And it's killing your pride,
Never take hate outside,

When your heart is chocking,
The heavy words never spoken,
The things that hurt you inside,
When love has died,
Never take hate outside,

When your heart is gone,
From being alone,
And it beats a solemn tone,

When you're cold inside,
It's only a short ride,
Never take hate outside

It has been months
I have not seen you

I remember those moments
When you and me spent in content

All the lights were closed
Our regular breathing on pause

We said our first hi's and hello's
Looking straight starting a glow

We shared some more thoughts
Unminding the time though

You hold my hand in between yours
My Fingers voluntarily entwine yours

It is like a dreamy wonderful night
As if you and I are the one in cite

I picked one soulful song
We stand and dance along

Indeed, we had some fun
Turning the dark into a sun

You are from our Dear God
That time seems a magic lands

Of her father
Even after hair in her armpit
After her four years sojourn in our citadel
With puberty wearing her a beautiful toga
She remains in the shadows of her father.

Of a Mary, 
The father’s virgin
Slim, willowy and parrotic 
Energetic, ever vivacious with life
An Amazon of a kind with a flawless curvature
Still, of her a Polyglot not a bigot

Her 21st years day was under his nose
She can neither sneeze nor 
Cough of a man near him
Still tied to her father’s umbilical cord     

She is not Virgin Mary 
Of the Joseph the carpenter
But Mary, the Father’s Virgin
I laugh only to myself 
As I dream and await the day the
Holy spirit will commingle with her 
For her holy pregnancy

Mary, my Mary
Remembering my voyage 
Of innate curiosity to her
And my emotional adventure into her life

Then, only then
As an innocent dare-devil teenager
Yet, I could not unlock her truest life
Oh! She regarded it as teenager’s world 
Of lesser emotional journey

Then, and then
My dream to fly her like an eagle
Was dwarfed by her 

But for many, the father’s virgin
I gave up not
For I like ‘morrow’s dream
Than the history of the past.

Embers of a dream

Lord, I don't understand.
Maybe I never did.
The destination of the path seemed so grand,
yet now it looks horrid!


The dragon You've placed, mine to fight
still breathes fire and brimstone in my neck,
but I'm armoured with incapability to smite
and the cobblestones You paved lead to this wreck.


I dreamt of the moon,
but couldn't reach the stars,
so I drifted into the sun and soon
I would be burnt with scars.

Why shroud my mind with dreams of peace at daylight's bend,
yet shred it with horrors at night?
Why let me pursue a rainbow when 
there never was an end?

The past is bathed in murky waters
and clothed in miry clay.
Now the future looks no better
and mere words can't express what I wish to say.

Lord, here I lay at Your mercy,
angry and heartbroken.
You don't make mistakes and You set free.
Please, I beg be my beacon!
Loose the shackles,
break the chains
that I may serve You again.
Show me the true way You planned,
for I have reached the end of this one.

Candy Made Of Cotton

You were born and raised as a dream,
That someone else liked to keep.
Run me like a river,
Currents can’t keep us from sleep.
You were raised like a flag. 
So sorry so forgotten,
You were left at half mast.
A tomato in the sun not dried but rotten. 

Candy made of cotton.
Dreams are meant to be forgotten.
And I’ll forget with help from smoke and ashes.
Alone here we lie between the sounds.
Don’t we all think our lives could be profound?
But my genius only comes in flashes.

Turn me like a table.
The only stories I ever heard were fables.
So now all I tell are tall tales. 
Something about cats in cradles. 
I wanted so much from life but I was afraid to reach.
Now hand in my pockets tangled up in sleeves.
My dreams have stayed just dreams.

Candy made of cotton.
Dreams are meant to be forgotten.
And I’ll forget with help from smoke and ashes.
Alone here we lie between the sounds.
Don’t we all think our lives could be profound?
But my genius only comes in flashes.

Godzilla Dreams

Godzilla Dreams

My little dragon is growing up. I do believe he’s just had his first crush.
In his cave with a sign ‘To Enter, Beware’, are Godzilla posters everywhere.
And he talks about her non-stop, all day long, Godzilla this, and Godzilla that.
This morning he mentioned contacting her so…Yes, he wants to bring her home.

Now, this did not make me a happy song, Dragon and Godzilla, together in my yard!
I sat him down to explain, his precious hopes, were only pipe dreams, in any regard.
The only communicating, he had done, is talking to TV screens and horror shows.
The Godzilla he saw, and the Godzilla he’d find… might be two very different kinds.

Like with any kid, this did not go off well, for he packed his bag and flew to Tokyo.
Yep, as you guessed she’s a treasure there… and a great big whooping movie star.
Every time he tried to talk… she blew him off, so as not to disturb, her next photo op.
But suddenly she became very interested in him; he’d be the new bad guy in a film.

She trounced him left, and she trounced him right, but never did he get a talking line.
She pushed him here, and she pushed him there, till he fell hard hurting, everywhere.
The buildings he landed on had sharp edges, till cuts and bruises were his final fate.
Then payment was a single kiss, lack luster at best, yep, a really fake movie star kiss.

As promotional time came around, again, he was pushed away, from every newsman.
Now our dragon is very self-centered you know, so with tears in eyes, he came home.
For days he moped around the house, as we all took turns… trying to cheer him up.
I got him his own photo layout in a magazine, the talk show circuit ruled supreme.

His heart was broken, but he’s a spirited thing, with lessons learned, important things.
What we dream, and what we think, we want, are not always the reality given to us.
He was just glad, to finally be home, and to leave the movies and Godzilla far behind.
He may not be the kindest thing, but he’s loved by all, and here the kisses aren’t fake.

Here, his faults will be tolerated as he grows up, yes HERE, he’s family, to one and all…
He’s back to the dragon, I did know, as we sit at the lake, in time out… What else?

From one keeper to another

My love,

Under the influence of the essence of our joined spirits
and the cover of the moon lit night, i promised you forever
Forever to be by your side
Forever to bare your load
Forever share your laughter and joy
Forever to only dream of you...that dream has come true
Forever to love you
Forever never to hurt you
Forever never to disappoint you or cause you pain...but i did
Forever can still be as long as we imagined it once was

Myself and I

Something in my brain
Has driven me so insane
That I thought, without you in my life
Why keep the will to fight
Or stand up for anything at all?
I had slipped fallen
Fallen on the ground,
So quietly, it did not make a sound.
You could hear me though
Whispering in the silence of my hot mess
While he watched me get undressed,
I was in distress
Then he slipped off my dress,
And lied and told me he loved me again
And I believed him until the end,
But I am stronger now, 
No one to lean on but myself,
So I let the sun beat down upon me
Suddenly, I start to feel  happy
I start to feel free
This must be what it feels like to be me,
I am so happy to finally be set free
I would never want to be anyone else but me;

One Time

One Time
When my sight got blurred
By unanswered questions
And empty lies

I lay down and close my eyes
I release my heart to open space
Walking towards the sunrise
All distances are lost
No more roads to divide

I can feel the change inside
I can't deny the voice of my heart 
Now it is feeling
Now it is controlling
Can't tell if it is relief or rage

My heart is released from the cage
Out in the nowhere 
No directions
No predictions
Just one purpose
To make the shadows of doubts disappear
To see the truth loud and clear
To see my love standing in front of me
To hear her voice ringing inside my ear 

I don't think I'm still here
My soul is out there
Searching for its lost love
Hiding somewhere among the ashes

I'm walking
I'm swimming
I'm flying
Between the glowing stars
Spinning around me
As I laid still
Not moving a muscle
Except my heart
Tearing my chest apart

Out of sudden
Out of the shadows
And for the first time
All the boundaries disappear
Like the train reached the station
Like my heart found its final destination!

I feel you here
I feel you near
My heart is so sure
No more wondering in fear
Behind the hidden tears
My soulmate will appear

Standing before me
So close to feel your breath
A masterpiece of beauty
Your eyes speak of love
And sympathy
Embrace me
With that strange feeling 
Of calmness
Of silence
Of relief

Can't forget your voice
Whispering to me
Alone in the silence
Like a storm of thunder
breaking the dark calm sky
"Don’t worry my love
One time we will be destined to fly!"

Echoes Of Celandine (Winter Jazz)

She was the coolest chick I never knew,
with hair of black and eyes of blue;
like, I'd watch her as the sun set down,
she held the breath of the whole damn town.

Now, incarcerated, I know the shadows are fast comin' down,
and I can see the strip lights growin' dim;
the fact she split, I cannot get my head around,
or the fact the winter nights are drawin' in.

All I seem to do is smoke and dream of wine,
or sit around clingin' to relics, servin' my time;
I cannot shut down the thoughts rattlin' thru' my mind:
those ghost dance malicious echoes of Celandine.

It's not as though she much looked my way
or that I could think of a single word to say to her;
all I did was watch her walkin', cool as jazz, in the street;
her smiles, her gigs, were never for me, yet they blew me off my feet, man.

So, one day, anyhow, she just upped and moved away from town;
I cannot forget, or believe, how much I missed her, how it broke me down.
She never knew I existed, I guess, never gave me a first, let alone a second glance;
in her world, in her eyes, losers like me don't stand a chance.

I celebrated my love for her that night in a drunken shotgun roar;
high on T. Bird, low on brains, I hit the local liquor store.

So why now do I smoke these murderin' cigarettes and dream of lousy, bitter wine?
Why do I sit like some burned-out zombie, servin' my time?
And why, after all these years, am I still haunted by the ghost dance malicious echoes of Celandine.

They say it's better to have loved and lost…
I say,
drop dead, 'cos
you know nothin'.

To Her:

never imagined beauty that deep, endlessly trapped in her soul i tried to keep, A mysterious perfection, with unimaginable ways, i sit and stare to only think about her ways. Thinking and dreaming, forever about her essence, as i slowly start to paint our perfection. Admireing her every move, i wonder how my dream became ever so true. Softer touch, then a flower blossoming, as she shines brighter then the sun. Heart goes crazy, skipping a beat, each and every time i feel our hearts meet. Always and forever will i dream about her, only to realize i now finally have her.

Dream You Come Back To Me

" Dream You Come Back To Me "

The moons golden glow is bright tonight
softly casting down upon the sea
I sit and think of the precious things
and Dream You Come Back To Me.

Your soft brown eyes speaking love I see
with pretty gardenias pinned in your hair
your warm soul is reaching out for me
so softly bright while I sit and stare.

I look down and see your little footprints
softly imprinted in the moon lit sand
I feel the rhythm of our beating hearts
slowly dancing to our favorite band.

This beautiful music of two people in love
has a meaningful lovers beat
anticipation of everytime
of when our lips come to meet.

I hear the distant music now getting close
our fate is always so clear
I whisper softly sweet words of love
so gently while blowing in your ear.

I remember the times we were slow dancing
just like it was yesterday
once upon a time our love was new
before you left me and went away.

We always walk together hand in hand
so sincerely in love were we
planning our future together as one
with all the sweet things to be.

Planning to spend my lifetime with you
but God had wanted you on that day
left with my memories all of you
is where you will forever stay.

Walking together and living our life
our days were all so complete
left facing a sad day full of sorrows
my dreams all fell in defeat.

I feel the warm wind with its gentle blow
allowing me always to clearly see
sitting and thinking of the memories
and Dream You Come Back To Me...

The Dream We Call Our Own

She looks down at the floor tonight
Hiding the tears that lie beneath 
She’s always hoping to get away
Hoping to find prince charming

We all have a dream
The dream we call our own
That one night
 We won’t sleep 
We all pray that
There is someone out there
Someone to wipe our tears away
But right now 
We’re waiting
We’re praying
That we will
The one

In the moonlight
Where he walks
He can’t bare to
Take one more step alone
He longs to hold 
His princess 
And never let her go
But right now
He’s alone
And he just can’t stand it

We all have a dream
The dream we call our own
That one night
 We won’t sleep 
We all pray that
There is someone out there
Someone to wipe our tears away
But right now 
We’re waiting
We’re praying
That we will
The one

One night in the dark
She thinks she sees him
And when he looks back
Their eyes meet 
For just one moment
And they run 
Into each other’s arms 
And they know 
For now on
They will never be alone 

We all have a dream
The dream we call our own
That one night
 We won’t sleep 
We all pray that
There is someone out there
Someone to wipe our tears away
But right now 
We’re waiting
We’re praying
That we will
The one

the dream

surprised a dream can tic you off
and make you change your mind

when once my soul was once aloft
frozen in a wierd sence of time

adamant was my resolve 
to always love and stay

my words and conversation
my testament and concentration

all betrayed this very day
in a dream that i still question

why would God send a dream
that would hurt my love so hard

i know the answer and i admit it i had did it 
and now i get it, why question God

(My last poem about April)

The Reality of a Dream

I have felt the bliss, of a daughter’s kiss,
and realize what heaven must seem.
For in all my life, thru happiness and strife,
my daughter’s laughter consumes my dreams.

I have sailed afar, and traveled the stars,
in search of a more beautiful feeling.
I’ve flown by air, for this beautiful love affair,
that sends my heart and soul a reeling.

I’ve rode the train, in search of a domain,
where love feels as brilliant as this.
I’ve swam the ocean, with perfect motion,
yet always amiss to finding this bliss.

I’ve treaded the bush, in Australia I push,
demanding they show me the path to glory,
but I leave empty handed, though I’ve demanded,
a beautiful ending to this tormenting story.

I’ve lived my life, searching for who I am,
and always do I come up short.
I fret and I ponder, for a love that is fonder,
than this love in my dreams I distort.

Still I fail, to no avail, to find a reality as grand,
than the laughter I hear, in this dream I command.
I ‘ve walked life’s path, in search of a resolution,
mindless to an ultimate desperate conclusion.
For a dream is an illusion, a visionary infusion,
a poignant resolution to all confusion – and a dream is just that….a dream.

You were all I'd ever dreamed,
My past loves untied;
You were my destiny,
That night you passed by.

Our love was set in stone,
You would be my girl;
You'd turn around and see,
Give it a whirl.

But you just kept walking,
Down the road.. didn't even notice me;
This love affair was only in my head,
A dreamer's fantasy.

Its going to take some time now,
Only God knows how long;
For Him to mend my broken heart,
And make me strong.

I was trying to get over you,
When my dream girl walked by;
Oh baby the way you look at me,
You know you make me high.

But you just kept walking,
Down the road.. didn't even notice me;
This love affair was only in my head,
A dreamer's fantasy (3x)

The wind has blown for days today
And I see no bird in flight
Nor the big trees swayed in the wind
And neither have I

She's an angel out of heaven
One of the very few
If love could not melt her heart
What good the sword would do

Paper cuts the knife 
I say I'm  a little drunk now
Its a symbol a sign she says
A drink of life that's how

Coal starts a morning fire she says
Love begins temptations
But what can I do darling
Everything's got its compensation

When I Found You

The heart
My ever stirring spirit

Eyes like sparkling diamonds-

and on we go into the wild blue yonders
of yesterdays, while singing tomorrow
(You know its only a day away...)

And sometimes when I lay awake in bed
I think of you
and how undeserving I am to be loved by
wonderful YOU.

Seems but yesterday the vibrancy upon this room beheld
such love,
the two of us....
searching, reaching, loving, laughing

and left in my depth
in the tiny corner of my soul-
so frightened to say I love you 
But comradery, and courage,
a nesting place for a fool as I, I know

For I love you, only  my purest-
white, unblemished smile slowly coming across my face

Is this my wake?
Is this a dream, a fantasy, a fallacy
to have believed in you,
and these dreamier things
Is a new life!
Emerging from the deaths 
the worldly screaming out
and I come to this room to find a new light
and flickers of love
penetrate and soften my disposition

New life,
like never has been known to me
and I stay soft,
like the Lord holds in His ever loving hands day by day
~His clay~
Smiling he gave me a heart to bear all truth,
yet he gave me meaning
when I found you.

Hold Me In Your Arms

Hold me in your arms 
Don't ever go away 
Stay here with me 
To see another day. 
Hold me in your arms 
Kiss me on the cheek 
Take me to bed 
And lay me down to sleep. 
Hold me in your arms 
As I drift off the sleep 
To dream a sweet dream 
And wake to see 
You're still here with me.

Pledge Not The Allegiance

It's the third verse,
I got the urge to purge
All the curt words I've splurged,
I've submerged in sin,
I'll go to church repent,
Then go curse again,
Lets reverse this trend
We nurse tolerance,
When it might offend,
If I white wash my fence,
So try to not get tense,
When I do not defend, 
Those who chose to be dense
And not use their two cents,
To show kids the reverence,
For the pledge of allegiance.

A Night with You

O, how I have dream't this night would come.
Me and you, and you and I together;
in the same room,
on the same night.
The night is young, and so are we.
Tell me all your dark secrects,
as I paint you a picture.
Kiss me on the cheek,
Bite me on the lip,
Give me a little slap,
Just to let me know, you're still here.

Let's watch a movie,
in the dark, when it's night.
Cuddle up together, under the virgin, white sheets and thick, warm blankets,
as we kiss each other.
Wet, sloppy and romantic kisses back and forth.
Love me, for I love you;
Kiss me, for I kiss you;
Hug me, for I hug you;
Hold me tight and never let go.
Pray with me that this night together shall never pass.

Come into my arms, and let us sleep awhile.
Dream of loving one another in a flowery meadow, over the hillsides of lovely skies.
Come let us go for a midnight walk.
Along follow over yonder, with the freaks, who sit on park benches,
sleeping their hangovers away.

Come babe, sit in this grassy field with me.
Let us count the stars in the moonlit, night sky.
I steal a kiss from you,
as the shooting stars blaze rapidly across, the purple night sky.
Quick my dear, make a wish!

I do not wish, for my wish has already come true,
and that is to be with you.
To Love you, and hold you,
and sing you to sleep, while you sleep off the night's adventures,
in my comforting arms.

A Memory

Introduced to your beauty that late autumn night my words weren't to smooth but you made it feel right those caramelized eyes were shining when I asked you to dance flipping your hair, I took your hand starting what seemed like a forever romance In the next week or month or two or so we began to talk then started to date days at the park turned to long moonlight strolls nothing could go wrong, life was so great I was always thinking of you you always thought of me two peas in a pod we were tight as a drum you locked up my heart and held the lone key I remember those days and your sweet killer smile I never imagined our love could go out of style The best days of my life or so did it seem If it wasn't a memory, it was sure a great dream

Comin' to You

Now at night I lay alone in bed
I wipe away the tears I've shed
But you're still gone and could care less, do you?
Oh heaven's dove has left her love
she gone to be with God above
So here I lay and dream of comin' to you
Comin' to you, Comin' to you
Comin' to you, Comin' to you

 A vial of pills sits side the bed
 and waits for me to tilt my head
But, He won't let me get there that way will you?
I'd rise then fall, for He won't call
until I've kissed the wailing wall
So here I lay and dream of comin' to you

Comin' to you, Comin' to you
Comin' to you, Comin' to you

The years have come the pains still here
some thoughts of you are crystal clear
But your still gone and I still care, do you?
I search the sky for your on high
my need for you I'll not deny
So here I lay and dream of comin' to you

Comin' to you, Comin' to you
Comin' to you, Comin' to you

I saw the Doctor just yesterday
He said the cancer' has had its way  
But, all I see's an open gate before you..
I see a dove she flies above
a holy ghost that's full of love
So here I lay but I'll be comin' to you

Comin' to you, Comin' to you
Comin' to you, Comin' to you

*dedicated to all whose love's have past
know they're waiting....

Parisienne Night

   MONSIEUR L'VAMPYRE - Parisienne Dream
Quite suddenly you've fallen through the seams
from very life, to stroll here by the Seine,
dropped from reality into my dreams
where you've loved me forever now and then.

You taste the fragrance of Parisienne night
and hear the distant singing all too clear,
it's just a dying nymph, in her delight,
one of the dead who knows her death is here.

Be as it may, your love tries not to speak,
as we enjoy the streetlamps' shadowings,
I press you to the stone and kiss your cheek,
and you can feel the sorrow midnight brings;

you echo words that concertina's say
only at night when love has lost her way.

My searching leads to parting of your hair,
as gentle hands reveal a neck too white,
and you can feel the pain, it lingers where;
I've set my teeth, and then you feel the bite,

and there I nurse, your suckling tiny child,
of blood and life, the nourishment I crave;
that keeps me seeking you, but drives me wild;
and makes me civilized, but mis-behave.

In your surprise, your feigning now and then,,
expecting sex; this is no mere foreplay;
you go beyond the limits of the Seine,
to yet another dream that will not stay.

Your struggle to reality is brief,
and you succomb into my time of grief.

The draining of your love into my own
is secondary to the love you take,
you'll fall from here, back to the life you've known
and that's the choice you have, it's yours to make;

you'll waken in the night and you'll forget;
safe in your bed, your pensione's gloom,
but on your neck, the trace of blood and sweat
leads you to feel each shadow of your room.

Remembering the locking of our eyes,
that made you cross the line into the dead,
will make you cry, but never realize,
that where you've been lies hidden in your head.

One day, you'll meet a boy I cannot be, 
but making love to him, you're making love to me.

If I could read your mind, that silver lake,
where none have gone before, nor shall again,
that never ending dream you weave and make
from threads of love like love has never been;

what manner of a mortal I would be
to swim there in your lake, where you are deep,
and blessed with love as if Penelope,
is born again in you, out of a sleep

forever faithful, to someone you'd choose,
to love again, but whom you have not met,
and I would be Ulysses, yours to lose
but find again in love we can't forget.

I'd love you so, my dream and silver lake
and on your mind I'd raise the only wake.

My Love

my love...

my love blossoms amidst the thunder

across the oceans and the beyond the seas

my love reaches out and touches

the moments of bliss as the loneliness flees

my love is simple
with profound feelings of yearning desire

my love rages within
the furnace of this aching heart's unquenchable fire

my love basks in the warmth of the knowledge

that in the spring it takes root and it will flower

my love breathes in the light fragrance

of her hair after her warm and delicate shower

my love remembers drowning in her eyes

of those ethereal moments frozen forever more

my love recalls the fleeting ticking of the clock

each minute apart stabbing at my very core

my love she knows I need her so

for she needs me just as much

my love she sprinkles light flourishes of her sensual touch

as my love for her continues to ceaselessly grow

my love reaches down into the crevasses of my of being

my love for her is held onto deep inside

for in the coming of the cold ache of seperation

my love settles between the folds of her heart, for 'tis there that my love for will reside

my love like an eternal dream caresses me in wakefulness and in sleep

and that is the feeling that I shall cherish

a feeling of love that has settled in me 

a feeling so pure and a feeling so very deep...

The Song Of David

Enlighten days have past
He comes excel in all, so he thinks
"I am greater than man,
I know what ignorant man does not.
Come to me for knowledge unsurpassed!".
He points to the blue heaven,
"Where is thy wisdom? For I know all.
Where is thy command? That makes the ground shake
And brings forth water that lives?"

At the great gatherings,
He flocks the shepherds, blind, mute and deaf  
He answers to the multitude of questions
He asked the shepherds, "but what are thy questions?",
“I know not what do ask a man of your wisdom, but what  is a dream?
What is life?” asked the young herdsman.
"I know not what you speak of", said the Man.
"I only know what i can feel, touch and see"

"A dream is dream that passes us by, like gentle breeze of fresh spring.
Life holds all things mystery and doubts.
Shepherd knows to flock, not life or dreams".
"The shepherds are those who are humble, noble one", said the herdsman
"The blind cannot see, the mute cannot speak and the deaf cannot hear".
"Who are you preaching to? Silent and amaze, the man looks on.  

"If the blind could see you, 
They would say, 'look here is the man who tried to humble the blind
For they can see what others cannot,
If the mute could speak, they would humble you!
And if the deaf could hear they would shamed your wisdom".
"Was I a fool?" said the Man "or are you not that young herdsman?
Who knows nothing of life and passes his days tending the sheep's?
What could you learn from such simpleton life?"

"Life I live is simple indeed, 
No one knows that the shepherds are those who protects the weak"
"Nature is a friend of the shepherd; we sing the song of David
And rubs the olive oil to our young sheep, to keep away the flies".
Insulted, the man's fury turns over to the young herdsman
"Nature? Protect the weak? The song of David? Flies?
How can nature befriend a lonely shepherd? Protect who?
Song of David the Shepherd who became the king? 
What flies would harm the young flocks?"

The young herdsman smiled at the frown face of the man,
Left without a word
The blind, the mute and deaf ignored the man.
An unyielding shame kept the man humbled
He wonders why the young herdsman smiled about.
He came about a bridge and crossed the rocky roads
On the hill top he stood 
And saw the young herdsman singing the Song of David.

Someone Elses Life

I feel like I'm living someone elses life, a life in strife. I've been strong, but when will I belong. I feel so alone, but I'm doing ok on my own. I can't describe the pain, but I keep in mind every storm runs outa rain. I use to think our love was unbeatable, but really its unforgettable. Everyday I walk down memory lane, trying to ignore the pain. He crosses my mind everyday, when will all this go away. There's gotta be something more, my heart is becoming sore. My momma doesn't have to worry, because I'm not sorry. I know he made the mistake, and he's the reason I have this heartache. What we had, was bad. I shouldn't have let it go that far, your just another scar.

Lost a Dream

Lost a dream did I,
the only dream ever had I.
How happy would I,
happy on my wedding day
if ever had I,
a diamond on my finger.

Lost a dream did I,
the day he proposed to I,
I looked at him in the eye,
and said I wasn't ready
he cried to I,
I'd regret it forever.

Lost a dream have I,
the only dream I ever had.

Wishing to Hold Her Hand

How I greet thee star with my wish tonight!

Will you grant me a twinkle from your sky,

Do I dare dream upon your beauty bright?

Burning like candles with eternal flames,

Shine down, shine down and fill me with your light,

Fulfill the desire to hold her hand.


I want to reach out and hold her sweet hand,

How I wish upon you shining tonight.

I shall watch you glow until morning light!

Till dawn shall awake with my blue heart sky,

For my dreams burn hotter than the suns flames

She lives in my soul, eternally bright.


There is no other that can burn so bright

I long for her touch, the softness of her hand

Can you hear my plea, my words are like flames.

Will you wink your approval down tonight,

How long shall I stare into your dark sky?

I shall stare until the breaking dawn’s light.


Grant me this wish and be my guiding light

Lead me to the touch that makes my life bright

A love that’s as deep as your endless sky.

Let me melt into the touch of her hand,

This shall be the only wish I wish tonight,

Cast all other dreams upon unending flames.


I will light the match and fan my dreams flames,

Promise me her touch before the day light,

The smile on her face I can feel tonight.

Dear star, oh dear star, that shines down so bright,

Do you feel the pain as I long for her hand?

Feel the depth of my love in your moonlit sky.


How many wishes shall I place in the sky

Will you fall from the heavens in a ball of flames

Because of my request to hold her hand?

Please hear my words for I shall have no light,

Can you catch a falling star, no longer shining bright?

My wishes are yours to answer tonight.


I dream of her hand and pray to the sky

Searching tonight for the lustrous flames

My wish before sun light, grant me star bright!

My cursed nightmares

Under the darkened vale within the labyrinth
Of my cursed dreams 
How my wounded heart yearns
As the pages of my history turn
Back to those colourful cherished days 
Now out of reach and so far away.

I dream of my first love Diane
My sweetheart and star filled dream 
Who shaped my future
And made me the man I am.

I'm desperately searching the places
We loved and used to go
And asking people if they know where she is
But no one knows
I know she's near but don't know where
The pain I feel in my heart
Is just too much to bare
I feel lost broken and full of fear
For my soul mate who I loved and breathed for so dear.

Then I awake and it hits me like a bombshell
As reality sets in
It may have just been a nightmare
But she gave me the happiest days of my entire life
I've never really been happy since those days
And I suppose I'll carry my love for her
To my grave.

Come Share My Dream

For Wanda -- A Belated Wedding Song

Come share your love with me.
Please let this night be all it can be.
Then, with tomorrow's light,
come share your dream with me.

Please let me hold you tight.
Let love's embrace guide us through the night 
and, when the night is through,
I'll share my dream with you.

Take my hand, and let this night just be
a night of dreams two lovers will set free.

Then give your heart to me 
and let our love find eternity 
Then with each passing day
come share my dream with me.

She said,
you have not
been bit
until a dragon does it...

Come my Ethelinda,
lips to lips
mouth to mouth
you the speaker
of the shroud
with secrets of the dead..

Storms cannot remove you
from my mind
I'm incapable
of not loving you
from mist to snow
to flickering starlight...

I have searched
the depths and fires of hell
to feel you
against my burning flesh
invading every cell of my body...

I have been waiting for you
to fly into my life
and satisfy my dreams
to make of me
the richest lord
with your vast treasures...

Her Final Words

"No." She whispered before drowning into her sorrows.
Her life had been a simple happy one. 
There were no pains and no troubles.
Life was life and people were people.
Life was simple.
and life was all about tomorrows.
Life didn't know about sorrows.
Her sorrows.
Those same sorrows that she drowned in never existed. 
They were never there, but where?
First to be sad in the naive town of joy.
Sorrow became contagious and what was known as happiness no longer was there.
It was non-exististent. 
A meager thought 
and a blessed memory.
She tried and tried.
She failed and failed.
Life was no longer hers.
For Pain was her only possession.
Her curse.
She lived and she died.
Yet, her legacy was passed on.
Never was it gone.
"No." She whispered before drowning in her sorrows, 
"Save them."

The fact that i am missing you...
I feel happy but a little blue..
I wish you and I are near..
That each time I feel like this I'll go rear..

The fact that I miss you..
Each corner of the room I glance, seems you are present..
I am owed by Your awesome presence..
I despice the truth of your absence..

The fact that I miss you..
I will find a way to reach you..
By e-mail; by phonecall; by going to you..
For this way, I might be with you..

The fact that I miss you..
I will reminisce some memories we have..
Of the times, we are sharing joy and love..
May we be blessed more by God above..

The fact that I miss you..
I will wish and whisper a prayer for you..
I want you be safe and be happy as I wil..
I will manage that by these I hugged you...

I Want to Fall In Love Again

I want to fall in love again
I miss the feeling
I miss the joy
It was like being under the sun
and melting..
it was like being under the moon
and shining..
I want to love again
I look at lovers
and they seem so in love
but it's lonely to have someone
and feel nothing
I want to fall in love again
my heart is scared
I could not feel it
It may be missing
It might have died a tragic death
the lies, the betrayals and the hurt
I don't think it could endure again
my heart is full of doubt
afraid to take step 
for I might fall down again,
be stepped upon, crashed and broken
I want to fall inlove again
but my heart is SCARED..

You Look Beautiful Darling

Wow... You Look Beautiful Darling. I love your hair styled this way and Your shirt is super fabulous. Beauty cannot be defined without you. How much you mean to me, I want only you Boo-Bee. Light up my life with your smile and your laugh, Your soul intertwined with mine and Carried it to a hidden paradise. Your touch shakes me as hard as an earthquake. I hear your voice, it is drawing me nearer, I become so alive at the sound of your voice. I was reborn when you first kissed me. With you my love, I want to start A dream that never ends, A dream of you is the kind of dream I won't think of ending, ever.

Raining love

On a raining day 
When I walked down the Nile
Holding a pretty vile
Heading toward the gazing mile

Behold the beautiful lily
Shining so sharply
With a beautiful smile
That revealed my profile

It questioned my pains
Enhanced my gains
Sees me when blindfolded 
Remembers me when even beheaded

Love running through my vain
Like the running rain
Dropping down from silvered cloud
Calls the name aloud

Dreamer's Disease

Written August 5, 2011

Why don't these constellations follow me
Smash-up mercy disease
When you go outside to find the light
In the middle of a cold dark night
Is when I'll ask if all your dreams are dying out

You only got one dance left to rid this dreamer's disease
Hey you over there
Do you give up more than you give
All my friends keep breaking down in two
Is there really any reason to live
When you can only get as much as you give

Davey lives at the end of the sea
So sink on down and look him up for me
And when the curtain's falling
Morning's calling
Won't wake up you got the dreamer's disease
Won't wake up you only get what you give

A Dream of You

I had a dream of gold
And rivers whose waters;
Purify my soul.
I dreamt of stars
And the beauty of the moon
As it sets at dusk.
I invisioned rainbows
With a treasure at the end,
That reflects its hue.
A true picture of beauty;
A dream I entitled "you".

The Candide Within

“This is the best of all possible worlds I hear, and you’re the master of your life”,
But when you count the closed shut doors, and look around you for a window,
Turn a rubik’s cube around and play with empty running rivers.
Mere stupidities and bottles with clichés will smear, right across the empty floor,
Tremble stupid kid! For cold, is just your empty sensation of fear.
This life is a wondrous gift, you’ll say; a challenge for the mighty heroes.
The good Pangloss in blood and flesh could not resist his own ideas.
You run and jump on sharp and blunt spears, to catch a glimpse of certitude.
But gravity, a law of nature, will keep you still in mortar shoes.
“Men have somehow corrupted Nature”, and I corrupt myself with dreams 
But what is hope but a glorious strength, embedded in genetic attributes,
Like aids attacking healthy cells, will disappear. And let it go Candide!
You die a hundred times a year and fear, fear, fear another death, another life,
The grand pillars of values and potent righteousness, 
You dare to believe in their existence. 
It’s like the God you trust, but cannot see and cannot feel.
But do not be shaken, have no fear for this is just your own free will,
Oh Cunegonde of mine, you’re near, and every time I look you disappear!
Sometimes you search the absolutes of universe and wonder where,
Does God exist and what He’s doing when Cunegonde is flagged and raped?
Stumble on the rocky path on orators and chaste priests,
With tongue so sweet and gloried preachings,
But what they do in solitude with sharpen knifes in backs of infants?
Close your eyes oh sweet Candide, and dream away with no restraint,
And watch how all your hemispheres will tremble soaked in darks and lights.
If not your head can imagine life without a shadow or a tear,
You are corrupt Candide oh dear, but this is the best of all possible lives.
You kill even the ones you love the most, nothing is holy anymore.
Just the promise of Pangloss and the dream of Cunegonde.
Merge your coding to save a dear, stop on red, and do not litter!
For your punishment ‘s not in Hell, it is indeed the life you bare.
Pace yourself! In the New World, like a Columbus you’ll try to steer,
Your arms and legs but not your head, for it is damned for it is barren.
There is no sun, or air out here. You strive for breath in empty chores,
At least you have your Cunegonde I hear, but she is just another whore.
Who cursed her love for seven years, but plow your garden cher Candide!
For this is the best of all possible worlds.

The Reality of A Dream

The Reality of A Dream.

The poison crown that bound my head,
did bring a sober theme,
'all the less, is of loving said,
a dream is left a dream'.

So in my strength, I broke the ring,
with all the fair alarms,
as crownless was a lovers king,
a king to loving arms.

I feared now not, the roaring hall,
equivalent to decay,
but all the wealth to me was pall,
the poison and delay.

Days on which we as winters wept,
Do rest those silver trees,
the suns that had us burning kept,
now dance the summers breeze.

I ran across to foreign lands,
to then my love pursue;
how homes are there in wishing sands
I wish! --I always knew.

There is no more a different state,
--two lives with joy ascend;
does hurt us not, a vermin's hate,
when love its self defends.

See yet the moon --in golden heels,
when I am calm and wise,
now cheerish I how dreaming feels;
a dream --with open eyes.

If I die before I wake

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Il Fiore Della Bruma P3

Eyes are a beauty like no other,
Where your deepest sense shines like lustrous glass;
The perfect crystal structure,
A divine un-shattered over easeful stars.

Today I looked upon the light.

Today I woke from a heavy slumber
With memory much the same as dreams,
Blinds had been lifted,
And I draw my stillness
Towards the feathered window release.

I pour each breath to this outside air;
The calmly gaze of the soulful sky
May catch them, with wings extended backwards,
Embracing the pure and loyal tide.

The gentle hope of a heart.

Oh, draw in these breaths,
A delicate mixture of a transcendent draught,
Imbued with the devoted kiss of the echoing lake:
Cooled and tranquil to delve.

And lunar rush, tender compassion;
Both wild and soothing,
As the forever bond of eternal arms.
This draught I mix, uncork and bubble
Lulled and sweet, foamed over-flowing,
Gently poured, in reflection of sunburnt oak
And drunk in loyal acceptance.

May my hands never depart
From the shores of your warmth
And with sight fixed to a beauty like no other,
And with a flame in heart:
Today I looked upon the light of words
 I love you… Hope you don’t read that and feel awkward…

The Dream

Sensations is the word for the entire treasure, And life is what allows to say That feeling every single pleasure, Makes people find their dream away. And in that dream they put desire, And they put hope for every scent, And all the senses we admire And never let their will to bend. The so called peace that all we need, The so called light we're searching for, That's what the dream is for indeed That's what we all have dreamed before. And when the light's about to reach, And when the peace it's on it's way You feel the kind in every speech And bless you find in every pray. The blind can see the stars that dance, The deaf can hear the wind that sings, And every whisper is a trance That makes even the rocks find wings. And when the dream is no more pain, And all the chains are no more doubt, You know your heart contains a stain And that the dream is love about. 01/13/2008

I Guess I Was Only Dreaming

It all starts with small bites on your shoulder...

You slowly turn and face me
you smile and laugh
your warm hands gently
tough my hair and back

You pull my body closely to yours...

I close my eyes and to my heart
I say "Stop beating fast."
I feel my lips slowly part
and then yours at last

Never have I been kissed so passionately...

For a moment I felt warmth
and my world grew quiet
I then open my eyes
and my dream came to and end

Beautiful yet mocking
my life was echoes
of lost ambitions and joy
growth, waning and resurrection...

Then came you
echoing like a rocky wood
reverberating dreams
like the sound of thunder in blossoming orchards...

Come to me
in the silence of night
breaking the silent shadows
echo as sunlight on a stream...

I dream of you
sweetness, how sweet and bittersweet
 i should awake in paradise
next to your thirsty longing eyes...

Without your honey kisses
and ardent affections
there is no echo
only silence...

The love we share
is an angel
in any form...

All I Need Is You

I don't need any money,
I don't need fancy shoes.
I don't need to buy happiness, 
'Cause all I need is You.

I don't need expensive clothes,
I don't need things to choose.
I don't need five-star meals,
'Cause all I need is You.

I'm smiling here so wide;
I feel like I'm brand new.
Today is the start of something big
'Cause all I need is You.

My soul is eternally fulfilled;
My heart is being led through.
I don't need anything else,
'Cause all I need is You.

Slipped Dreams

 I can't take this anymore from you ,
Delay after delay is all you seem to do.
   So many years have just been passing by,
Yet I am still alone and there is no reason why.
   Always something that will get in our way,
But I am here praying for that most wonderful day.
   When you arrive and we have settled down ,
Then we will start our lives and begin showing you around.
    This will never come to pass realizing this at last ,
But much to late for the rescue of a pain of the past.
     Slowly I turn away not sure if I will make it through ,
The nights so cold and lonely crying is all I can do.
      You have broken a heart that was so good and so true,
Only one thing ever mattered to me and that was you.
       I know that this was the way it was suppose to end,
To remain here with you would be the worst of all sins.
      There are no words that would could ever describe this pain ,
And for that I will do nothing more then drive myself insane.
       Remember all our dreams before they had all slipped away,
We loved living our lives and loving each and every day.
         But hey all this dont matter much to me anymore,
Cause I realized that you were nothing but a whore .

An Ode to

An ode to.......
Drifting through my mind like an elemental
You seem a waking dream of color and light
The moments are spontaneous and incidental
Only remnants illuminated particles of plight
Devastation it lingers the pain is instrumental
Spasms scarring and blurring my vision white
Mingled with words the effects detrimental
The breath of reason with wings take flight
Leaving my dreamlike thoughts fragmental
The days bleed and fuse to the dark of night
The voices lost in anger always judgmental
Lingering in confusion and madness in delight
Jealousy burns the soul but only incremental
Eternal seems the burden internal is the fight
The scope of my part denial is monumental
Truth to me is a dream no longer in my sight
The intent not intended the result accidental
Sadness weighed heavy with a warriors might
My young heart was scared and temperamental
In my leaving in my heart I know I wasn’t right
Years stream by our love glows in the sentimental
Its resonance beckons memories of you held tight
Heartfelt lush dreams of our love transcendental
Longing from afar as my words fade like candlelight

When we danced together,
Only you heard the melody
Knowing that was forever,
Then I kissed your forehead
Your arms embraced my body
And you asked me to lead:
It was after the midnight
Among many strange faces
I went left and I went right,
Then your eyes were wide,
Dreams leave no traces
But your smile at my side…

I Did Not Believe in Angels, Till

I did not believe in angels
Til I saw your satin face;
My God, your eyes consumed me so--
Gave my heart the will to race.

Oh lovely, I am at your feet,
I have known you in my dreams;
You own my heart, now soothe my soul
With moonlight's powder beams.

Take me to where angels go,
If there's anyway you can;
Or lay your wings and halo down
And know me as a man.

As I would trade my very life
For this, and only this;
To experience the ecstasy
Of your sweet, angelic kiss.

Heart Of The Ocean

The heart of the ocean said once to me
Just spread your wings go and be free
And spread the love that’s in your heart
For new beginning and for a new start

The heart of the ocean told me one day
I have enough to give it away
The love in my heart with someone to share
Forget the misery, tears and despair

The heart of the ocean did show me the way
I found myself better each and every day
I know it’s not easy, but I’m willing to try
To spread my broken wings and fly very high

The heart of the ocean made me very strong
I found my place I know where I belong
I found my shinning star, the love I want to share
No more tears for me, no misery and no despair

The heart of the ocean is smiling at me
I found my way, and finely I’m free
I found my love my heart and my soul
Something very precious I was waiting for

Wake Me Up When This Dreaming Ends

A long time has come to pass
And still I'm here with love that lasts
Be with me, and keep my heart
don't leave me now and throw this all apart
Let me love you, as now the die is cast

Memories are all I have
starving heart but it's not that bad
Without you here, I truly am undone

So be with me, and sleep with me
let our hearts and dreams become as one
I hope that all I have done won't go unsung

Every night, I dream of you
every dream I wish it true
But here I am, cold and so alone
Tomorrow I lie awake
hope so bad my hand you'll take
and together we will go on

Difficult Trials -Part 2-

Turn the wheel
*******he sea...
Push aside the misery...
The abominable agony...
Endure this hardship...with me
Fight off the tears and let us roam to sea
Don't make it hard for me
To determine the waters

We are the same kind
If you can be so KIND, let me show you your destiny -
To dwell with me in tranquility  

We will try to share our responsibilities...
Take turns and share our possibilities...

How have you been?
Sorry we have shut our ears
To your deafening cries
I'm turning the wheel for you
You're losing still - why are you so blue?

I'll shut out the feeling of anguish

You'll get what you wish

We will start anew
We will start on a fresh start
We will fulfill our dreams and make them come true
We'll brew away the sadness
I'm determined to eliminate
The distress... swallowing us like a tidal wave...
Behave, you wild childlike waters!! Behave!

Don't worry - we'll get rid of
The limited happiness
And make our heart pump with merriness
Don't be a magnet of depression stress

You'll experience a wonderful opportunity 
So you may feel  at one with
Our world full of possibilities
And eliminate those cruel, wretched words
That tore apart our responsibilities...
Our activities... our reveries... our possibilities...
That brought us back together

We'll be hiking
These somewhat difficult hardships together

True Knight

I used to dream when I was new
Of midnight curls, eyes sapphire blue:
Long years ago, it now does seem
When I was new, I used to dream.

I must confess, as dreams are free
I didn't see you wait for me.
My eyes were shut, my heart no less
As dreams are free, I must confess.

Then years flew by; I woke at last
My childhood dreams became my past.
With just three words, a dance, a sigh
I woke at last – then years flew by.

The love I found, it went away;
I lost your hand one sunny day.
It slipped from mine, fell to the ground:
It went away, the love I found.

My strength, my world, I watched it fade,
Those years of light fell into shade.
My body done, my soul unfurled, 
I watched it fade, my strength, my world.

The past is haze but I’m not done;
I linger on: alone, I’m one.
I fear my grief will drown my days,
But I’m not done – the past is haze.

The love we share, it’s all I need,
For though I’m lost, I know you’ll lead.
I’ll follow you and break despair – 
It’s all I need, the love we share.

If All the World Made Sense

If all the world made sense, 
You'd see what's done as done.
And never at it look back again.
Every single pain would disappear
And things that hurt forgotten. 
The stars would grant you wishes
And in the clouds you'd fall asleep. 
A cup of tea would sooth your worries, 
A tea time treat your cravings. 
School would cease to exist, 
And all the subjects understood. 
Chasing clouds would never die,
Nor that intuition of a child. 
But in the end only one will suffer.
As in this senseless world it lives.
Through illusive words it thrives
And still remains undefined. 
The workings of the heart that is,
'Cause only love would suffer
If all the world made sense.

Dream World

Your silken skin, trembling to the touch
A scent of sandalwood, wafts as to soar
Your pant, accentual-syllabic verse
Beat ever faster, no ration of time

Awkward moments as two become one
An everlasting symphony of fire
Quenched, after the crescendo of the night
Descending from a dream all in my mind

Soul Mate

I wander alone
On this dark, dark night
And dream of love
My guiding light

Seeking that life
Of two minds set as one,
A fated existence
An emptiness gone

Countless miles elapsed
And in barren surrounds
Where most cannot live
And others go unfound

Yet even through
The thick hazy gloom
I can sense your longing
Your love in bloom

 a thousand miles
Of this desolate terrain
Could not isolate
Our love enchained

Oh, my lightened heart
Glistening with hope
It keeps me moving
Along this slumbering slope

To where we belong
A contented existence
Where dreams are felt
A warming presence

Of burgeoning love
That will not fade
Not even when deaths’
Lonely call is made

Whether troubles or pain
Do try to intrude
They will not be more
Than a brief interlude

To this complete happiness
For which fate holds the key;
Our two hearts bonded
Our love finally set free

So I wander alone
On this dark, dark night
And dream of love
My guiding light

Bad Dreams

Author's Note:
surah- chapter of the quraan/ prayer
jinn- invisible spirits which can be good or bad,
and may interact with men and can create bad dreams


When I had bad dreams
My love taught me surahs
That I might recite at night
To prevent my mind 
From being poisoned
By evil jinn...

I thought of gently reminding him
That jinn were not the only beings
Capable of evil-
Nor could they be blamed 
For every troubled mind-
The memory of a smack
Stings at least as much
As from a being of clay as fire;
Harsh words are as scalding
As from a tongue of flame-
At least were it jinn
I could have claimed
It was something inhuman
That harmed me,
Not my own-

I don't say these things-
It's not his fault...
So I smile,
And tell him I love him,
And let him explain to me
How to rid myself of
The only demons he knows
How to protect me from

I Hope You Know I'll Always Love You

I am what you call a hopeless 
But im also a lost lovers cause, my 
heart belongs to another
Yet in my head a love triangle starts 
to form, the girl I love doesn’t love 
She holds the heart to another and 
mine caged to the floor,
She isn’t afraid to fight for what she 
wants, not even when it comes to 
leaving another man torn
Trust me she’s happy, as that boy 
holds her heart ever so close
Seeing what I shouldn’t I smile as I 
wear my blind fold,
Blind to everything around, lifeless 
staring into air
My train of thought running so fast, 
the second I stop you’ll hear a crash
Derailing my hope, for ever finding a 
love so pure & rare
Wishing I could hold the hand of the 
lover who stole my flame,
Wish I could change the last days in 
which we parted ways,
Realizing now that we can never be 
the same
Finally saying it out loud as tears run 
down my face
You stole my happiness, as I walked 
away that day
But it’s because as of what you said 
I guessed I changed,
Now every relationship has just be 
the same,
No one can seem to bring back that 
Because a love likes ours comes 
once in a lifetime
Well at least it does to me,
But I mean you’re happy with who 
your with 
I mean I only wrote this as I heard 
exchanging “I love you” flow from 
each of your lips.

I can't live without you

When your heart says wow on a beauty scene, what to say!
If a weak Comes out as a sumo, what to say!
A place where all hate each other,
If a flower of love comes out there, What to say!

Even if not with me then in dreams,
I can't blink my eyelids when you come in your window,
Don't go away baby I can't live without you!!

Leading you next to the fireplace..
Can I take your hand?
Leading you there somewhere
Won't you close your eyes awhile?
Don't get afraid or scared
I will do no pain or harm
Now, I will place both arms
Both arms to your narrow waist
Moving slightly one to the nape
Moving slowly one just lower
Won't you lean your head?
Lean to the hallow of my throat
As I will too
Butterflies will suddenly fly
sudden shivers will run down the spine
A song from the heart will be playing
My head I'll gently move
Searching soft cheeks to purr
Lingering my nose to fill
Smelling scents of you 
I'll land a kiss to your forehead 
And face to face, can I?
Closing my eyes beneath your gaze
One step at a time
Matching mine to yours
And yours to mine
our feet duet unto the floor
Owning this solitary moment
This solely moment for awhile

Love Endures

Love floats by,


tip-toeing past pain,

leaping through walls,
weakening the barricades,

of the most private heart.

Love settles in,


quietly beyond anguish,

erasing the desolation,
soothing a battered spirit,
enveloping the shivering soul.

Love stays, it is true,

love endures, as do you

‘Tis winter season—
a bracing weather, foggy in its warmth.
The trees are drying, as bones,
gripping water from the winter soil.
It’s resting on an earth snow:
dancing in chilliness, dazedly.
it’s waiting for a poignant breath
that will give him soul.
To feel, once more, from being numb.
To warm his heart;
but the serenity and the turmoil have ended.

The dream is forgotten by the prized.
The dream is freezing the lover.

Fragments Of Dreams - - -

Frozen Caress The dream comes gliding Murmured words Out of dappled, swirling light The dream, I dread but also need I struggle to get away At the same time breathlessly calling him I embrace the dream I am the dream It always starts the same Unfolding in a snowstorm The sliding of the car, then the crash My dream spirit Long raven hair blowing, floating And the book of destiny opens It is written His cold fingers caress my skin His dead lips kiss me And the snow is falling Then all is quiet, peaceful His name engraved for eternity I am shivering, as real and dream entwine And the crying, a haunting moaning Drifts endlessly The Falcon Come my love, says the Falcon, come fly tonight Deep in a dream, I see his earthly face Entwined in his feathers, we rival the wind Even eternal death cannot break this love Soaring over lakes that stretch forever Come my love, says the Falcon, come fly tonight Up we glide on his majestic wings Where cliffs rise a thousand feet We hover at his resting place My tears falling and kissing his tomb Come my love, says the Falcon, come fly tonight Deep into the dark we fly as one Only those who have lost love can understand Until the pastel violet of dawn comes creeping Come my love, says the Falcon, come fly tonight And I wear a mourning cloak, o, how heavy it is And the crying, a haunting moaning Drifts endlessly April 4, 2013 Lyric

Looking Up

How long before the cobwebs grow
on hopes deferred once bright
to toil long in patience grow
only to concede - "hey, it's life"

Tops of mountains beckon come
majestic sights and purest air
yet to perplexities we seem to succumb
when the present finds us ill-prepared

And so we linger looking up
the beloved trek unmade 
for incumbent priorities to lose would crush
as we look with longing and walk away
In the vicinity of a perfect dream
gleaning from smiles that slowly grow 
No sail to hoist but the ore rejoiced
for the love with which it rowed

Who can say the choices we make
will in the end prove wise
or show beyond the shadows doubt
to be promises of truth or lies

And so we take a leap of faith
for dreams we live and those we wish
fear and love they coexist
when the choice is choosing a mate

Dreams in the Dark

A dream within a dream that calls my name,
And echoes through the night while sleeping still,
That voice that never seems to sound the same,
Yet comes from deep within against my will,
And in that dream, my senses know no shame.

O darker side of love within me dwell,
Possession, obsession familiar traits,
The darkness I have come to know so well,
The baited breath that now investigates,
Unnerving words my dreams cannot repel.

Till Death Do Us Part by Bob Braun

I must be perfectly clear, I did not write this but after reading your narrative David this old song from 1962 came to mind--perhaps "corny" for some but you epitomize truly honoring these words and in this world of convenience where most people seem to simplify their lives by eliminating emotional inconveniences---you truly lift my heart and give hope that perhaps we all might be ok because true love does exist in people like you..God Bless!

One love, one life
One dream forever
One love for one heart
Till death do us part
Till death do us part
Do you know what that means
As long as I live there'll
Never be anyone but you
And when the time comes
I pray I'll be the first
Because I couldnt live
Without you anyhow
Till death do us part
For better or worse
That's only a question
Which asks if I'd stick it out
If the going got rough

Well, I only have to
Think how rough it
Would be without you
And I know I could go through
Anything as long as you love me
For richer or poorer
Well, that's no problem
If I had all the
Kingdoms of the world
I'd still be poor without you
And yet though I'm poor
I'm the richest man in the world
If I have your love
Till death do us part
In my arms, in my heart
In my dreams and with
Every breath I take
I think of you
For me, you're the reason
Every new day dawns
Because I love you so much
And I always will
Till death do us part
One love, one life
One dream forever
One love for one heart
Till death do us part
Till death do us part

Loves Dream

Do you ever think of us
And wonder what went wrong
Are you in anothers arms
But feel you don’t belong
Was I someone special
Am I ever on your mind
Am I in your memories still
Or was I left behind
We almost had it all
I thought we’d make it all the way
But someone else’s hold on you
Just wouldn’t let you stay
I was the other woman
Always waiting by the phone
The one who always had to hide
Who spent her nights alone
My time with you was not enough
But still I can’t forget
For you will always be the love
I never will regret
Sometimes I still cry
For wondering where we went so wrong
But still I have this dream of you and I
That keeps me strong
That we share one more precious day
The way we used to know
And when I hold you in my arms
I’ll never let you go
And if this never happens
If my dream does not come true
These words I’ve never spoken
I now want to say to you
You’ll always be the one thing in my life
That was so real
I loved you then, I love you now
And I know I always will.

I've come to want for morning leisure
where once the night knew not my haste
now feed my measure of quiet pleasure
trading sleep for tranquilities taste

Tis when I ponder of past and present
an editors choice of will
to learn from tempests I have weathered
hold tight the remnants of joy instilled 

For if by chance this day shall fade
the last I've traveled my journey known
to know in conscience I have paid
time in thought of days I've owned

Of love relinquished or that bestowed 
facing giants and demons known
in strength or weakness of which I'm prone
to praise the grace and mercy shown

Fickleness in light of providence 
pulls back the curtain of chaotic scenes
revealing there a smiling cognizance 
of trials hewed to shape sweet dreams

So as my garden vines do cling
and wind their trellis to face the sun
I find myself grateful for broken wings
unable to flee from the man who's come

To win my heart in deep respect
with awe and laughter secure to rest
what joy to cling without regret
to a trellis built by an architect

strong and stable so full of love
tender yet able to strengthen enough
to carry the burden of weight and wind
and fill every dream from without and within

Praise I sing for a man today
who bathed my face in the morning sun
a gift for years stowed away 
of "all I dreamed" in pseudonym 

In light of grace has come the dawning
of mourning to be no more
and with a ring of promises
the rest of forever with "The One" whom I adore

Treasured images of you appear
in dreams darkened theater
as sleep hovers near the lids
guarding the threshold
where lashes meet;

Another night of tumbling
into the oasis of memory’s sand;
side by side, hand in hand,
re-exploring what had been.

Remembrances breathing, once again, 
new life into each scene
Falling, spinning, further drifting,
into this dreamer’s dream

Caressing breaths of sleep explore
while still the stars are nigh
until the night ends its pirouette
and again we kiss good-bye

Loving You

The night is warm
I watch you sleep
I see your smile
You dream so deep

I love to touch you
Your face at ease
I love to kiss you
I love to tease

You look so far
Far in your dream
But you at peace
That’s what it seem

I kiss your lips
You smile more
Your happy face
I just adore

I love to watch you
When you asleep
And when you smile
And dream so deep

You are my heart
You are my soul
And you my love 
I just adore

EYE Don't See -Part 3-

My eyes
Witness your departure
My eyes
Are dripping with hopelessness…
My eyes start to blur…
Melancholy put me under pressure…
Is there a cure to my disease? 

You don’t see
The shards of hope that once brought us back together
Just let me search for safety
I’m strong enough to realize that I’m no longer
The weakest prey out there…

And I’m left in my solitude…
Do you hear me whimpering like a distraught puppy left on the train tracks?

I’m close to my demise…save me and take me home

Nourish me…and be my beloved friend

Will this friendship last forever?

Hopefully it has no end

Will this cheerful moment help us get along with each other?

Because of you…I feel the need to run 
I keep an eye on you – I worry that you’ll hurt yourself again
Because of you…My freedom is nearly gone
I don’t wanna be caught off guard again
Because of you…EYE can’t picture a solution for our vexing dilemma 
Because of you…eye can’t focus on my long-term goal 

And I’m left in my solitude…
Do you sense that I’m giving in to failure? 
And I’m close to my demise…
Only to find myself disappear…I can’t endure 
The hardships that you place upon me…
Could you boost up my confidence to overcome 
My atrocious anxiety? 

I’m just waiting for some sun
To keep me in good hands…
To strengthen me with perseverance …
I’m just waiting until His son
Leads the world outtah Egypt and reveals to us…
His radiance…His dazzling Kingdom – 
Vibrant with glee

Your undying sympathy dawns upon us
I’m overflowing with indescribable joy  
You’re a candle in the night…
We meet eye to eye…
What a sight…what a precious sight

A Found - LOST - Dream

In a Void of Emptiness, I Found a Dream : that did not belong to Me
You may call it Curiosity,  but I decided “to Dream that  “LOST “, Dream
As my Eyelids became Heavy with Sorrow : A Fatal Accident I would See.
Let me figure this out : A Beloved Has been Taken by a Tear, so it seems

A Sibling, A Sister , A Friend, A Companion, A HEART of a HEART
A Memory : Living FOREVER; Thriving  on the TEARS of the Past
I did not Know YOU ; “Suzanne” but by Proxy, by YOUR Sisters’ Heart
I have someone very Dear, in Heaven: also “will YOU say Hello when You Pass
 Inspired by LOVE for SIBLINGS : Dedicated To ~ Constance ~ A Rambling POET~~

Author's  Note : If I am Wrong in the wording of this POEM, Constance, Pleease tell

What is next

I have been looking for my dream car, 1971 Chevelle. Carrying out dreams and goals are not bad things at all. There is a positive on this. I have a very vivid mind and it goes to work from time to time. Thats a feeling. It is hard for Ek to remember things. How i Feel. Song. Everyone thinks people are there to help them but everyone is out for themselves not trying to help each other out. It is all a dream she would have done this and she would have done that but she did not reply. Where did the girls go was the questions asked by all the guys and then discussed by the girls as they drive off. You were drunk, rambling, and you ran them away. Pure 3-2718space240Dash Bravo. What is this you ask? You can put pure in front of anything and sell It.

If I Only Had One Day To Live


If I only had one day to live, I'll make one wish for a dream to come true.
Then I'll know, our love will have a meaning, to be loving you.

I miss you so much and now God will take that away from me,
To cherish the moments that I have been longing for, to see!

You are always special to me as I am missing you very much
My tears keep falling and I can feel your special touch!
Please say you'll always love me, the way you have been before,
For my love will never die, in a dream to say "goodbye".

Old age,

We stay!

This beautiful autumn night

On this beach I walk with kindred,
In search of feelings I've always hunted,
Away from things that keep me haunted
Ah! to this lake that god has founded.

I tread golden sands till I see her face,
A face not seen before in this place,
One I've seen but in a dream of quick pace,
How within such a dream I'm held in her embrace.

I wonder toward this sweet temptation,
Tempted by her eyes scintillation,
Guided by some heavenly vocation,
Finally greeting with blushing elation.

Now we frolic in this lake that is sparkling,
Till the Ontario sun is no longer shinning,
Till the birds that soar above are no longer flying,
Till these crystalline stars are no longer hiding.

It's been two weeks since I've seen her face,
A face that my memory cannot erase.
Now walking these lanes in search of maize,
I see a face I haven't seen in many days.

Now we ride on this wooden boat for two,
Speaking of nothing but me and you,
Thinking and speaking of nothing but just us two,

Years go by and we're still holding tight,
laying in a field under pale moonlight,
alone i gaze at eyes do bright.
And I say to you.

Even when I pass—
Promise that you'll keep my heart,
The one I give to you
on this beautiful autumn night.

Perverted Proclivities

A peculiar proclivity

I always dream of your pink embrace
I sit solemnly inside of the blood drenched summer without a worldly thought
I pray inside of your warm temple

A perverted proclivity

Sin is named my dream again
The tears in my eyes are now pieces of silver
The sky is dark and the everywhere dead
There is only the two of us
mirrored faces into jaded eyes

I used to dream of your warm,pink embrace
scared of the life possible to brew

My proclivity is dead
I instead travel inside of the shadows of darkest hue

Litany of Decay

This is for Litany of Decay

All hope tonight is just a void
Th cure was lost so long ago
But I still dream you will lie  next to me
Though you gave up on me so long ago

I miss the way the pain made me forget
I miss the way the pain made me Lose all misery

All hope tonight is just a void
Th cure was lost so long ago
But I still dream you will lie  next to me
Though you gave up on me so long ago

I miss the way the pain made me forget
I miss the way the pain made me Lose all misery

All hope tonight is just a void
Th cure was lost so long ago
But I still dream you will lie  next to me
Though you gave up on me so long ago

I miss the way the pain made me forget
I miss the way the pain made me Lose all misery

Your love was never meant for me
Nothing I was when you met me
Nothing I was when you left me
Nothing I am as I destroy myself

I must Live to face another day
To sing this damned litany of decay
My heart beckons for the grave
But there is no escape
So I sing this litany of decay
Don't mind me as I fade

Dance with me under the light of the moon
And sing to about my doom
Serenade me with an epitaph 
So I might feel what it's like to truly die

I see your face, it takes all the pain away
But you suddenly fade into the darkest of shade

Your love was never meant for me
Nothing I was when you met me
Nothing I was when you left me
Nothing I am as I destroy myself

I must Live to face another day
To sing this damned litany of decay
My heart beckons for the grave
But there is no escape
So I sing this litany of decay
Don't mind me as I fade

Living is suffering
Homicidal with you
Suicidal without you
I understand if you give up on me

The burden will fall
Today I might, today I may
Set you free, from me 

Your love was never meant for me
Nothing I was when you met me
Nothing I was when you left me
Nothing I am as I destroy myself

I must Live to face another day
To sing this damned litany of decay
My heart beckons for the grave
But there is no escape
So I sing this litany of decay
Don't mind me as I fade

What more have we to write about?
Waters rippling from thrown stones?
And what of passion or true love
Found only through lasting pain.
The aches suffered throughout the times
Will surface forevermore,
Relentless to our fighting urge
To suppress the burn once more.
Stabbing at our beating hearts
A strike merely meant to wound
So as to heal, so as to learn
From the pasts we live within,
Trapped like a mouse inside a maze
Which has no exit nor light;
A lonely soul left to wander 'round
'Til it finds a wall to sob near.
What more have we to write of, 
You ask?
No, what more have we to see.

To Him who forgives all of our sins

I feel the caress of your hand,

The Gray Prince of Romance

I set my foot on the saddle of heart
But all were shaded, blurred, and scratched meaningless
I heard a whisper and tempted
Who was wandering within the fog?

This world seemed to be collapse ...
Or was it hiding?
Would it be stated in the relevant of logic and a conscience?

The heart says yes
The cavity of mind says no

A contradiction which fails to take the truth as the end of a fact

Lips say yes
Eyes say no

Will you be able to break through the hypocrisy which was anesthetized in it?

This must be a dream ...
And I hoped it would be ended as a dream ...
A dream which described about a big whirl
An endlessly linear which revolved upon a life

Which I hoped I would never be involved 

But it was too late ...
I am here, standing as the pivot of a dilemma ...
For a moment I stood on my silence
Try to analyze the situations ...

For a sudden I speak to an empty room
What are you searching for?
Is it a black or white instead?
And the breeze of wisdom back whispered

"You're looking for an obsolete"

"You're looking for the gray prince of romance"

Lovely were Those Days

I dream of lovely days,
The day I met you,
The chat we had, the love we shared
Jubilant were those ways.

The moment you called me up, 
Delicious was the tea,in my cup
Terrified were I, shocked and shiver,
Rattled with the waves of happy river.

We talked night and the day,
So much to talk, so new to know,
Sitting by the beach or the bay,
Cuddling by the chilling snow.

First Love Visits

I dreamed of you again
The first love of my youth
I wonder what takes me there
Exploring you again
Wondering how decades later
You still come to me 
In my dreams.
I know we will never be together
Our lives so different now
But when I dream we are 
And our love so strong.
I was just wet behind the ears 
When I fell so hard
You just made me feel 
Everything around me was new
The last time I saw you a gift you gave
Still friends we are some 35 plus years later
But you told me you loved me once more
And there was the closure I had needed 
So many years before. 
Then why does it happen again
What does it mean this time when
I dreamed of you again

My Fantasy Sister

A rewrite of the previous,,after reading it again the one before this,,, I felt it was sending the wrong message,,,,,,at first to me it was what I wanted to say about my make believe sister,,,,,,only that the lines I wrote, could be mis-construed to another meaning.

She is a dream girl, sibling, I never had.
Not to sexy, or even beautiful to see,
She is not exactly good or even bad.
She is just my fantasy, designed for me.

Not to sexy, or even beautiful to see,
She is mostly happy, hardly ever sad.
She is just my fantasy, designed for me.
She has no mother, not even a dad.

She is mostly happy, hardly ever sad.
Impossible you say, this could never be,
She has no mother, not even a dad.
A dream girl as my sister, oh gee.

Impossible you say; this could never be.
Though it is true, she is my abnormal fad.
A dream girl as my sister, oh gee.
What I always wanted, since I was a lad,

Though it is true, she is my abnormal fad.
She is not exactly good or even bad.
What I always wanted, since I was a lad,
She is a dream girl, sibling, I never had.

Falling Star

When the dawn embraces the universe
Darkness intensifies to cloak the sky
The gaze of mortal sees nothing but night
Then you rise from above exuding your light
You are the moon that reigns above
Enduring the sleepless time of wicked sky
The prowess of the knight flawlessly conjure elegance
A strength that marks within my weakened heart
I came to see what hell is all about
Just to find out that heaven’s is within my grasp
That when I tried to touch its mysterious existence
It disappears right before my naked eyes
Nightfall conquers the universe
Then you came at the darkest hour
Shadows are only seen when there’s light
And you don’t need it with your contrasting might
Blinded oath and selfless dreams
Becomes the reason why there are transient wills
No one is accepted for well-minded ruler
Frosted hope vanishes from nowhere
If wisdom is your sanctuary of hope
Where principles are vows that cannot be broken
Choice is a myth older than a Merlin
I am a casualty of this unorthodox ideals
Let me be the garish star
The fixed luminous shining dot of the night
Let me descend and be at my daunting hours
Until I find my perfect place in the sky
I might be seen by others as the brightest
Playing with the gleaming cadence light
Again let me subside for several times
Or perhaps forever until fate becomes mine
A prisoner of this dream might lost
Cease to live with passion to change the order
But if it’s the only way towards the moonlight
I shall walk with this illusion until I die
Because my hopes shall live forever
That there will come a time
That the keeper of the sky might fall
To the illusion I weaved, it shall exists
To free the soldier of the night
To have the liberty in chasing all the odds-
And give the privilege
To catch this Falling Star…#

I Stand, Alone

I stand, alone.

Scratching for my truths,
peeling away the veneer,

I stand, alone, before this
impregnable cliff so sheer.

Cocooned in my solitary shell,
wrenching a smile from a tear,

I stand, alone, a little odd,
and definitely quite queer.

I stand, alone.

A Fairy Tale Prince

As a woman
I live in fairy tale land
I need a man who understands

That I need bells and whistles
Just like men need missiles

I like kisses and hugs
And plenty of love

Fancy clothes and perfumes
Big houses with large rooms

Books that inspire me
Compliments and chivalry

Protect and respect
Is my motto

I’ll follow

The man who will follow my dreams

I ripped the photos and just left, 
as far away as I could get
These lonely nights I feel bereft, 
the love we had I can’t forget

Around the world in eighty winks,
over high mountains my search springs,
in deep valleys my pursuit sinks,
as of this heart you pull the strings.

I scramble across the vast lands
and toss with the mighty oceans.
Feelings so hard to understand, 
as I gulp my own made potions.

Swept by rivers of emotions, 
along the obscure countryside.
The sweet thoughts of your skin lotions.
make me miss you I must confide.

I make my way to your house blind, 
down the chimney for you I zoom,
around the spirals of your mind,
in the far corners of your room,

in between the sheets and blankets, 
offering the least resistance,
my dreams forming endless secrets,
as my esprit bridge the distance.

Surreal Love

I pray to God that it will be a brighter day; 
I want his warmth to clothe me day after day 
Someday, the sun will erase all of my doubts
 and push away the clouds…
I want to be a positive schoolboy – but the clouds 
Cover me like mesmerizing, despondent shrouds  
I want to be a positive youngster – I need to stay
 True to my unaccomplished goals everyday

Lord, I know life has its ups and downs – but, I must keep a steady pace…
I want to develop a stable mentality with no trace of pity 
Lord, I know life gets problematic in the long run – I FEAR I might fall on my face
I just want to be content – I want my dreams to become a reality 

I'll be loving you forever… 
for you’re the last thing on my mind before I go to sleep at night
I’ll take a moment just to ponder… 
About you and our time together – thinking about you restores hope, joy and might

our love is wholesome and so much more…
our love will grow on forevermore…
our love is real and it’s a great deal…
our love is beyond measure and it’s totally real…
Our Love is oh so surreal 
You melt my anguish away…
Our love can heal a broken heart
You cherish me in the month of May 
You blow away winter’s dismay

I pray to God for a more optimistic mindset…
Hopefully it doesn’t result in forfeits  
 Push away the gray…and laminate it with a striking sunset, 
I’m drowning in his inclement, rainy regrets

I’ll make sure to embrace competition…
for you're my reason I run the extra mile, winning honor and applauds
I’ll take a moment to pursue my ambition...
Of being with you always and forever – I fear I might lose all of my odds 
With you…your heart isn’t pumping with vile frauds 
Every single second spent with you…
Makes my spirit soar anew...
I never experienced such surreal love
Our love flourishes rapidly from up above 

I’m sick with a love flu *cough* *cough*

The Walkway of Life

The Walkway of Life
 By: Wessam Karam 

On the walkway we build our dreams
 Dreams not associated with that of today
 Today never to exist in our scoop of plans
 Obviously we are too occupied with that of morrow

 On the walkway we build barriers
 Berlin Wall if I may narrate
 Building hate and rage for years to come
 Concluding: “all and all is just another brick in the wall”

 On that walkway history have witnessed before
 Unpleasant events, anticipating never reoccurring
 Written down on so many books, which few have read!
 Falling into the past, as we build our dreams on that walkway

 On that walkway the lovers would hold hands
 Planning together beyond realm building castles so tall
 Driven into marriage and bond to love and cherish one another
 Soon to break up on that walkway, hands never to hold one another

 On that walkway you meet some friends
 Brotherhood, pledge you praise to be molded
 A sudden blow that kills ought to derive - away with trust!
 Friendship never has the same gist, plastic amity ever to be

 On that walkway we hummed for freedom
 Echoing back so many forms of freedom
 Lost we are of which system to indicate 
Falling once more to tyranny we brought to be

 On that walkway we gazed deep into the sea
 Hoping our lives no longer exist to be
 For our dreams are our worst enemies
 Thus you nudge away the thought yet to bout o'er 

On that walkway I ask for love, love of today
 For today soon to fall out with every sunset
 Not to rise ever again, on the next sunshine!
 Plans we can make but as real as it takes

 On that walkway we can share love
 Doesn’t need time or effort or plans
 Simply to love and fight hate
 Love is religion and religion is fate 

Let’s stop fighting in the name of causes
 Which we will never live to see it arouses 
For our tender care and knowledge of how to shrub
 Is scarce, expecting bounties is hard to clasp 

On that walkway 
History can become today,
 As today may perhaps last a while, 
If we live day by day

An Angel in Danger

Life's gifts is of all the good and 
the bad 
Never knowing what may arise 
An angel is everlasting hope we 
long to have and to hold 
We have watched you through 
just like a hawk 
We will never give up on you 
we know you are strong 
Who the angels will pull you 
through somehow 
Where there is a will there's a 
And with god looking over us 
well know we will be safe
Even tho this deadly danger of 
a disease took you over
We know in our hearts that 
steady burns yull be ok 
As a fighter like Athena (a 
warriors guide)you will grow 
Even now we see your alot 
Must be these guardians of 
heaven looking over you 
Feeling good with this is all you 
may need 
This danger none should live 
But as long as there is Angels 
up above its all you will ever 
need to pull through 
A tragic time.

Difficult Trials -Part 1-

Turn the wheel
Out of curiosity
I'll be'll receive
Something special...something to make you whole
Though the trials you must run through
Are a great struggle that can easily
Pull you down
And I want to erase your frown

You will feel way better about yourself
Just trust me...take my hand...
I'll encourage you to have a satisfying time
Just for your own liking
We'll be hiking
Those somewhat difficult hardships 
Together for eternity 
We'll spend time in the future 
Together in unity

*******he sea...Let's flee and be free!
LOOK how nice you look!

Trample those insufferable nuisances
That dare put you down
To the sea floor
I'll push them to the core!

Feel free to walk the

Simply not infatuation

When I first met you 
you were so cute that
my brain just couldn't compute 
so I went mute
 As I stared in awe 
Wanting to know you
Noticing that 
the reason my heart ached was 
 because of you
A girl much more than a pretty face 
I never wanted to make love out of lust
but then I realized 
that it was in you I trust
So I must change 
to show you
this isn't simply a fascination

Where did you think I would be ?

*** A dream that I remember......****

I remember opening this great set of wooden doors which led out onto a city street. Everything was as it should 
be except that there were no people; not a single person anywhere. This was perplexing to me, but did not 
distract me from my goal as I was in quest of a certain person. I remember the urgency in wanting to find him. It 
was as if finding him would answer a number of questions for me. I ran out across the street and up a number of 
steps to this great cathedral. Swinging open the doors, frustration mounted as I looked inside the great 
sanctuary. No one was here, he was not here. I ran down a number of other streets and still no one. Not one 
voice until
finally I rounded the corner of a tall building and heard the sound of a crowd in the distance. I emphasize the 
word crowd for it was as if every one in the whole city was there, gathered in this one place. Almost exhausted, I 
began the endless task of parting through this sea of people for I had to know why they were gathered there. 
reaching the front, I saw a lone figure laying on his back on the ground before me some ten feet distant. 
this person and the crowd was a man kneeling with his back some what facing us. Never rising, he slowly turned 
and looked questionably into my face. It was Him, it was Jesus laying hands on and healing this person. While 
never saying a word, His look asked:”Where did you think I would be ? It was as if Love was looking right 
through me for I never forgot that feeling nor this encounter. My quest was over, my questions answered.

Pleasurable Nights

Basking in the beauty that is the night
Lovers embrace within dreams delight
Thoughts intertwine in each other’s arms
Succoring peacefulness, knowing no harm
A blissful respite from this earthly realm
Where worries smother and life overwhelms
Reconnecting thru wanderings in depths of slumber
For it’s here spirits thrive in time unencumbered

The Dreams

In dreams of the dark night, I hear my heart swiftly beating
But in the light of day my dreams which become to me more bright
And in time's  passing, my dreams become goals that need completing.
In dreams of the dark night_
My heart racing_weeping_unfinished dreams have reached their height
In my deep sweet dreams at night; how I long for just one meeting
But in the day the truth arrays, and night's dreams take their flight
Oh! What a dream, poetic dream, my love someday meeting.
All we now have is our secret night time_sweet dream's delight.
In dreams our hearts come together and ignite with greetings_
In dreams of the dark night

Some doors are better left closed
I've come to know
Some books are nicer on the shelf
This, Santander's taught me well
And when night is upon me,
and I know I'm not strong,
it's better to sheild my eyes
to move on and on
to walk where my feet carry,
to let me lie where I've been burried
to forget,
to rest.
But when you pass me 
all of me bursts, like the sun breaks the sky
and I fly, forgiving you a thousand times
with love multiplied
On my knees, i'd damn myself
I'd be your cause, you would have me
even though you never did
but with the dream that it's me for which you wait
It's your birthday today
and our arms should fit right
and I should love every breath
your blue jeans, your perfect heart
the words flowing off your tongue, your song
Don't you know me? I know you do.
Six feet off the ground, eyes down
you gesture to know, who we are
where my silly heart has crumbled
and again I fall, harder still
My heart...a bit faster than before
But I couldn't say happy birthday
for my shame, and this canyon's too deep
and I can't ignore that man 
who'd plunge into it for me
to dream an old dream
to know your lips cold, a story too old
a love too warm to ever be known
Alma, I'll see your hometown soon
My feet will know your shore
and your voice will pour
from the proud flag
a single star 
reminds me where you are
Always my first love
Always my first pain
clouding my days
for a love so misplaced
This door is closed
That book collects dust
But I will never forget

Just What Is A Broken Dream, Anyway

A strange sight upon a lonely road.
A dream ripped in half.
Looking closer, I wonder what was the travail.
An old price tag attached, making me wonder at what price it was sold.
Along the edges, tattered and torn, it gave forth an evil laugh.
As if some sly devil concocted a way to turn someone pale.

Onward I traveled, with pack upon my back.
To the left and right of the road were littered with more broken dreams.
So many that one could not keep track.
Some having been blown into the parallel stream.

So, I checked the pack upon my back.
And, yep all my dreams were there in a stack.

Cold winds howl, trying to rip my back pack to shreds.
Freezing were the winds, but forward I march.
Never losing sight of my dreams in spite of many dreads.
They all hold up strong even though many times I'm in a lurch.

Suddenly I see people returning to the road.
Going back and picking up their dreams.
Dusting them off and restoring them to their pack.
Each and every one said to me, you are quite bold.
To go forth and not let the cold winds of fate not destroy your knack.
To face life as it comes and not give up even if offered gold.

Good, bad fortune, are likewise of no importance.
Put a failed dream back in your pack and maybe a new day will appear.
Where you can unpack that dream and give it another go.
But, for today, march forward, today's failure might tomorrow's dance.
You gave it your best, and win or lose, that game has ended with a spear.
Win or lose, that game is done so pack it's knowledge away in your pack and grow.

Suddenly down the road a new vista appears and a brand new game.
Left high and dry or victorious are the two possible ends of any venture.
But in truth, knowledge is all you will have, win or lose.
For tomorrows game is just around the bend, all the same.
Win or lose, the game of life only ends for the moment within sight of the new adventure.
So, to quit and call it the end, only makes you look like a goose.

Dozen of dozens questions, I was carefully asked..
Maybe ten hundreds, I was requested for a shot..
hundreds by hundreds, vivid images rush..
of smiles; of wonders; of glee and of absurbness..

some fantazises..
some beholds..
some envies..
some admires...

leaking in deep embedded trenches..
bombarding waves after waves..
begotten in fusions of vibrancy..
in partition of velocity and gravity..

some is a picture of truthfulness..
some is a picture of falseness..
some is a picture of dramatic eloquence..
some is a picture of authority obedience..

yet underneath a wiseman's eyes..
behind an elder's cleverness..
surely, no one can ever hide..
surely, no one can even deny...

In my soul

You are so alive in my soul, angel,
You are warming up my heart.
When you're far away
You are always closer than anyone beside.

They may never know the story,
How much we hide inside.
Sometimes people are so blind to see
That real love is worth to fight.

And maybe both of us are living
In the darkness of this world, and
We are wrapped in wrongness but
Still we hold on through these days
Believing our love will save us.

Decipher the messages
Encoded impervious presages
Alert your senses
Reinforce illusion defenses
Alchemist of unknown
Predisposed to finally atone?

Question corollaries prior
Analyze what may transpire
Beckon your defenders 
Desire of all surrenders 
Cryptic are ambitions
End-all of other expeditions? 

Stroke scar in reflection
Separate from your affection
Clasp your shield
Promote the force field
Abstruse is verity 
Words birthed in sincerity? 

Kiss dreams of devotion
Taste the foreign potion
Dismiss your immunity 
Dare mystery opportunity 
Mystical is the allure
This alchemy is beyond obscure

By Chance or Divine

Not sure why your path crossed mine
Was it just life,
or" The Great Divine"?
It was so easy the day we met
I'm sure its a day, I'll never forget.
We laughed,we talked,and walked by the lake.
God has a plan
There's no mistake.

Your beautiful voice,the songs you sing
A country gentleman....
Or was it a dream?

It wasn't a dream
Cuz, you're still here
By chance of divine
Whatever the case.
Two peas in a pod
What a glorious day!

Chain Link Fence

Across the fence into reality
and in a time where all is as it seems
there was the girl and what is destiny
but far removed by time and all its schemes.

The morning dream, the vision in his mind
came haunting him like secrets not believed
and what is known to God but hard to find
is on the other side of chain links weaved.

In other times all things were understood
he'd make a choice, and then he carried on
but now he paused, uncertain if he should
reach out to her before the dream was gone.

All that he knew, all that he thought to be
she changed to other things or else it died
and he was born again but couldn't see
beyond the fence into the other side

he'd dreamt of her and many times before
but now her time was here and so he knew
the key to what was locked and yet in store,
brought changes to all things he'd ever do.

He begged to know from He who had the plan
how he could fall so hard for someone who
was far removed in time and younger than
tomorrows spring, what good could this love do?

"This love is just forever" was reply
"the dream of things for you to always feel
to always know until the day you die.
I make all things--but not a fence of steel."

He knows her in her smile and deep blue eyes
and how she laughs but always how she cries.

lover of the night

 lover of the night

Dreaming of you
before I even laid my head 
to sleep,
pray come to my mind,
for you to show up 
to hold me tight,
kiss me all night.
with shadow of every ending day
dream comes to me
and my dark tall lover
seducing me in my desire  
without a shame
or blame perhaps
like deepest secret of my life
holding me tight
brushing my cheek
ever softly
with your tender hands
pressing your lips
against mine,
softens of his skin
like black sateen,
quenching my never ending thirst,  
dark and tall,
lover of my dreams,
it's on his way,
with shadow at the end of every day
is on his way
to seduce me,
kiss me,love me so ever gently
all the way until dawn 
break its way to new day
Lover of my dreams
so real so dark
so real so right
as this deepest secret 
I am holding in my heart

softens of his skin
black sateen,
quenching my never ending thirst,  
tall and dark
tall and dark
deepest secret of my life
it's on his way,

Peace at last was not found on earth

I live my life wondering why I’m here
Trying to right the wrongs of the tormented
When the wrong has control
And no one gives a darn

I wander trying to make sense of a way of life
People trying to make the American Dream a reality
When the Dream is an illusion
For the Middle Class and the Poor

In the midst of all the world’s drama
A young man mourns for the loss of his brother
A little sister tries to hold on to the brother left behind
Only to lose him just like the first

First love, young love stops short of forever
A young girl devastated by the loss of innocents
A dad trying to help his little girl through it all
The loss of her mother now her lover

A best friend, a little sister, a girl friend, and a father traumatized
By a young man choosing to follow his bother into Sheol

Under the same Moon and Stars

There have been times during the night
when I have looked up at the moon and stars
holding my pillow tight
Wondering if there's someone out there for me
feeling blue 
Staring at the same moon and stars
dreaming of meeting me
and lonely too.

A soul mate just made for me
who can fill the void
and ease the loneliness
inside and set me free.

Where are you love of my life
the one I hoped to make my wife
Around the corner
or far across the sea
will our meeting ever be.

I've dreamed of you and true love
all my life but maybe I'm just a fool
and your not out there at all
but if you are please hurry
I have so much love to give
before the angels call.

Be Still My Love

Written March 25, 2013

Any minute now
The sun will rise again
A ship sets sail for the ocean
Another's coming in
I don't quite know
Where I should even begin

The day breathes a sigh
That makes me wonder why
The rain falls only in the den
Where we sit so patiently and wait
The same couch from our first date
Maybe this is just our fate

What house is this I'm in
The paint is wearing thin
The sound of stories told
Has got me growing old
Just you and me my darling
And all the red starlings

Any minute now
The night will come again
We'll set sail for the ocean
Watch others coming in
If I ventured in the slipstream
Would I find you in my dreams

So be still my love
Don't fear this life you're in
Things will change this time around
I'll let the light shine in
I'm just waiting
For this life to begin

Ten thousands I do not have..
Sparkling diamonds unfortunately Im not bestowed as well
Big architectural design homeI don't have as well 
And So I have not also seen much of the world..

What I do have is my family and my friends
What I do have is a mind willing to learn and discover 
What I do have is a heart sensitive to feel and understand...
What I do have is a handful experience

I have loved thee..
With all that I am I did..
Though It did not end to what I want..
Still, I remained hopeful 

As much as, I want to give..
There's a drive I need to control..
As much as I want to show..
There's that voice saying: "careful"

How can I not stop?
If it can be; it might be..
How can I not go on?
If I don't feel the possibility..

Between heaven and hell, it might be..
Over the sun and under the sea, maybe..
I will bravely the risk..
I will courageously seek..

Even if I'm not sure of the result..
Even if I may be place in hot waters..
I must try; I must try..
I must not quit; must not quit..

To Love You This Way

Is it a crime
To feel for you as I do
When it won’t do me or you any good
We can’t be together
Like opposing magnets
We clash
Impossible, yes
But it is true that I’m desperate for what I cant have.

I’ll watch behind closed doors
Wishing I was outside with you
But I’m locked up in this prison
A punishment I pay
For it is a crime to see you this way.

I can dream about you forever
But I dream in lies
And eventually I’ll wake up to face this harsh reality.

So just forget I exist
Shouldn’t be hard
Considering you will never look at me
The way I see you
I guess that’s a good thing
Only a fool would love me
And you, good sir, are no fool.

You will live a happy life
Smile that dazzling smile of yours
And I pray that you will remember me as I once was
Not as the monster I am now.

I’d forget about you if I could
I would be better off
But I can’t forget you
I don't want to forget something so beautiful
My dear you will be the death of me
Gnawing at the nerves making them fray
Oh it is a crime to think of you this way.

On my death bed
Dying am i
Without you with me
Without you holding my hand
Whipping gout this disease of the mind
That’s destroying me now
You gave me reason to live
But like the rest of me your gone
And I’m slowly wasting away
It is a crime to live for you this way.

I’ll await my destiny
And it will be a drak fate
But if I think of you
And how it could have been
It will be as if it were real
As if you ever loved me
And that’s all I needed.

I wish I could have told you how I felt
Just so you could see into my heart and know that I’m not a monster
I should have followed my heart
But that path leads to death
So I’ll rip it out so I won’t hear what it has to say
For it is a crime to love you this way.

Another Dream of Her

Yet another dream of her
(that smile, which brings such happiness to my heart)
she sitting with her sisters
in an idle photograph
she smiling like that,
arms around ones who truly love her,
she so beautiful,
dressed in her Thursday's best;
so beautiful like that
and you there in my dreams keeps me warm
(and my heart sings a tone, that the birds shed a tear too)
and I smile
and I live
and my heart flies to a place, not like this one
a place where love is in charge
and hate is not in the dictionary of life.
Another dream of the one woman who makes me smile,
yet the Gods do not let me have her;
but such a woman as that is not worthy of a man like I;
such a woman with such a smile as hers' deserves the best of the best,
and nothing but the best for her,
so as a man, I shall let go of her warm and glorious beauty
and give to a lucky man
and I shall not pout, nor envy him or her,
for something so beautiful as love and sacrifice
deserves such praise!
Oh yes another dream of her,
dancing with me in her evening ballroom dress,
in my arms,
as the smiling faces join hands with one another
and watch us dance in such a lovely dream.
her smile, such glory and so bright,
it blocks out the rays of the powerful sun
and can brighten the darkest of the Earth's four corners.
another dream of her,
that girl, that woman, that lady
who stomped out the fire that was burning away at my angry heart,
she gave faith to me,
and now I give her that blessing of true love
with another,
for I take such notion of her being happy with another,
than being with me and frowning.
Sure, tears have been shed, and jealousy has killed good men's judgment,
but such beauty as hers’ could kill a man.
Another dream of her,
my portrait lady,
my lovely dream girl,
my friend.

Bradlee Joe Rasmussen

Bradlee Joe is mine, he's always been mine,
The younger brother of David Authur Rasmussen Jr.,
Those gorgeous brown eyes staring at me, natural hair color,
That's brown; just like his brothers, but he dyed it blonde.<3
That gorgeous angel face, I think of him everyday all day, think of,
Those memories, that smile, that laugh, that voice, those strong arms,
The strong arms that hold me, just like his brother used to.
The sweet things he says to me, those precious eyes look into,
Into mine, the way he runs his fingers through my hair, the way he tickles me,
The way we play wrestle, the way we talk, the way we look at each other.
Eyes full of wonder, wonder how long we'll stay together, then he says,
He says "Baby we'll stay forever", and I believe every word he says,
My God if he only knew, knew how he makes my heart pound, the way,
The way it's just so easy to talk to him, man I can tell him anything, and I know,
I know that he'll keep it a secret, that's why I trust him with everything,
Everything inside of me. Everytime he asks me if I wanna start,
Start over with him, I always say yes, because I love him!!
No matter how much he hurts, I'll always love him, I do, because,
Because I know it's real, I love him with everything inside of me,
I want to wake up next to him everymorning and fall asleep,
Fall asleep in his arms everynight, say "I do" to him, have his,
Have his children, be in love forever, my God I've never felt this way before.
I fell for him the first moment I saw his gorgeous smile light,
Up that dark lunch room, the way you hugged me tight, exchanged,
Exchanged numbers with each other, and the way we talked on the phone for hours on end,
Oh how I wished for you to be mine, How I still wish to change,
Change my name to Briana Lynn Rasmussen.
Babe I can't inagine a world where you don't exsist, babe without you,
Without you I'd honestly die.
The son of David Authur Rasmussen Sr. and Sandi Rasmussen,
The brother of David Authur Rasmussen Jr, and Cheyeene Rasmussen,
The cousin of Kenneth Michael Hampton, better known as Mikey :) You have
Have a older bro, a younger sister & brother, and you have you,
Father's eyes, your brother's strength, your mother's beauty, and your crazy,
Crazy sense of humor.
With you I can't stop smiling, laughing and giggling.
Babe I am finally home, it's been a long time, and I am glad you kept the bed warm for me,
My home is with you, it's the only place where I belong, and babe I am so glad to be home.
I love your curly hair, I love the way you hold me, the way you kiss me, the way yoy,
You love me.
I love everything you do, and everything about you,
Babe I really do hope that day comes where we say "I do."
Hell I'd do it right now if I could, if you wanted me the same.
I want to be the mother of your children, I want to be the on;y woman you come home to,
Come home to after work, the one you give sweet kisses to, and the one you tell,
Tell me about your day, the one who wants to fall asleep in your arms, and 
Wake up in your arms with my head on your chest, see your sweet smile everyday,
Hear the words "Good Morning Baby, how'd you sleep?"
I'd reply sleepily "Great, how bout you Angel?" I love everything about you, everything
Everything you say, babe I love the fire in your eyes, the way you are protective over me,
The way you fight for me.
Babe I just wanna be your forever, and when we die baby,
I want to be laidto rest next to you, or with you in the same casket, because,
Because I'm only me when I'm with you, you are the only one who keeps me warm, The only one
Only one who makes me feel like I am home, like I'm finally alive,
Like I'm finally me, babe you are my better half and really honestly,
I've been so lost without you, and I am so glad to be back home.

The things I feel,
Now makes me reel,
Towards a place,
Where I've never been before.

And as I go,
The ecstasy grow.
I feel a blaze,
Evoking, to my very core.

Enchanted I am,
And the surrounding
feels like a dream.
A greater power has,
now dawned upon me.

The Hand That Rocks The Cradle

Revisited the 60's in a dream this past eve....

I saw Bobby fall and lying in a puddle of his own blood

Martin and John followed by processions of broken; tears and cries

Bodies with motionless eyes, frozen amid trenches of mud

Riots of revolution and defiance although, somehow tainted

Within these delusions; peace, equality, love and drugs....

Norma Jean Baker, aka, Marilyn Monroe with, a bottle of pills by her side

Dorothy Gale, finally making it over her distant rainbow ~

Jimmy, Janice and James, walking through their eternal youthful doors

Malcolm exiting and the Zodiac entering but, humankind did land upon the moon....

A Supreme Court forever changing the face of this place with, breathing documents!?

I awoke from this scene which held many other things

Some good; but most, hidden behind the lies entwined within, democracy

What we call such yet realizing as I reflected upon this dream and life

It is so much more in line with, that of a monarchy....

The crumbs which are scattered by the hands that try to rule this world

Yet even they do not know the shadows that, rule they themselves?!

Gazing about and around at the endless in broken; lives lost to be scattered

Upon the wakes of this relentless campaigns, poisoned and cruel carnage

Hearts bleeding with spirits of wings torn to crash; taken and for the taking....

Looking at Bobby lying in a puddle of blood clutching desperately unto a rosary

Within his last moments of life amid this dust afore his sight, as he stood now 

At Heavens Gate; these hands that led to his fate

Whether it be called democracy, monarchy or anything else!?

Beholding them all and knowing beyound this dream, the extremely twisted 

Unseen; bent upon and I ask myself now, who shall stand as

I turn my eyes towards heaven to ponder this saddened truth in a world I find....


....“This, The Hand That Rocks The Cradle?!” ~

Recurring Her

Every time I dream,
I dream of her I do not know,
whom of which I do want so.
And when I dream I dream so well,
that I can't hardly ever tell.
That it is a dream at all
till I wake there staring at the wall.
Scent and taste and pain and fun.
Awake and dreaming, the difference is none.
Memories of things that never did take place.
And when I wake, a memory of her face.

See every night she comes to me
where we spend time so happily
and in those eyes such great things I see
We go every where I've never been,
to across the world then back again.
A time so grand yet tis all pretend.
Dinner, walks, late night talks,
those long legged socks with her hair curled.
Skirts or pants there are no can'ts
and when we dance we are the world.

Every time I dream,
I dream that she's right there.
I dream of her soft skin, sweet smell,
and here orange hair.
I hold her close, I catch her scent.
Every night, that's how I've spent.
Looking in those sapphire blue eyes,
complimented by her orange curls
Even though I am asleep,
my head well it still twirls.
How her hand it fits in mine,
and we are each others' just right height.
What a way to pass the time,
each and every wondrous night,

When I close my eyes I always see her hair.
Slightly wet to cause some curl
But I turn around and she's not there.
Until it is that I drift off and she's waiting just for me.
Her hand outstretched a warming glow,
anticipating what tonight will be.
The music's soft to match her voice,
there is no choice with her I want to go.
I want to see, want her to be,
I could never tell her no.
She smiles with her eyes,
when they lock onto my own.
I take her hand to follow
and this glimpse I'm shown.

Every time I dream,
I dream of how she looks at me,
and the way she makes me feel.
I dream who I want her to be,
And how what if that she were real.
I feel it in my stomach and feel it in my chest.
It feels as though I am awake, 
even though I am at rest.
And somehow I have no clue,
but somehow she feels it too.
She loves me more than anything
always she shows me so,
And when the clock begins to ring.
How I never want to go.

Cause every time I wake
well once again I break.
When I see that she's not there,
lying next to me with her orange hair
and so that world begins to tear.
Ripped away from me
so quick, complete,  entirely
and soon sets in reality,
but I'm not quite ready to leave.
The alarm clock is blaring while I'm staring,
at the ceiling still full of feeling.
As the image of her fades from me,
and I wonder who is she.
Or how it is I could so feel,
for someone who is not real.

I can only dream

Wake up in the night,
having you by my side,
I dream of this moment with no end,
I can't remember how long its been,
but I seem to manage,
its hard being a hopeless romantic,
cause when faith falls,
I don't know if you'll be there to catch it,
I can only dream of this night, with no end,
I can't remember how long it's been.

Shine Bright Tonight

another night I run to you
only for a kiss
and within a whisk, 
you're off 
into the land you want to be in 
I have come home 
to see you leave 
and then I'm left 
here daydreaming
when you say you'll come back 
but you never do
until my eyes 
have already turned blue 
until I can no longer want to think 
you'll be back in time 
for you to see
the light on my face 
when you make me smile
someone has been gone 
for quite a while 
and you tell me to wait 
and wait I do 
until I can no longer want 
to wait for you
oh, if I could stay out 
I'd dream all day 
of things I want to do
but work keeps me this way
and you can dream all you want 
because I've given that to you
but now I want my turn
yet I'm still turning blue 
I keep hearing you say 
great things are coming now
but all I see 
is my bank empty
and me, working 
struggling to buy shoes 
when you 
shine with all your gold 
you buy for yourself 
as I resist from buying pants 
I might want but don't need 
you shine some more 
and I become lonely. 
Oh shine bright tonight, 
wherever you are 
I've begun to not care 
how you'll be a star
because I need to let myself go too
and all I see are diamonds 
shining bright on you. 
maybe if I could do what you do 
I'd shine like a star 
I'd shine just like you.

Your Kisses Are --

More than your smiles.
More than your laughs.
More than your dances.
More than your ways.

More than these flowers.
More than these waters.
More than these colors.
More than these flavors.

More than that horizon.
More than that sky.
I keep on coming back and
It is the reason why.

Feeling My Pain

I’m feelen the pain 
and I’m hurten again
I’m somebody’s fool -here sitten on this bar stool
Tied to your chain

Bleeden like a hog
Getten drunk as a dog
I’m liven in a dream world- made up make believe world
Feeling my pain

Feeling my pain
Of loven you  again
Where I’m gona go now
How my gona stand now
while lying in  the pouren rain

Loves gone away
Pains come back to stay
I’m feelen the strain now
Hurten again now 
Feelen my pain

You’d said you’d be true
Not to make me a fool
But you slipped up again now- lied to me again now
Cause you’re the girl of my dreams

I can’t get away
You’re in my heart to stay
I’m liven in a dream world  - made up make believe world
Feeling my pain

You’re the shining sun and silver moon, Glowing brightly in my heart, Your words soothe my thoughts, And for once, I don’t worry. Though we couldn’t talk much, It’s like I’ve known you all my life. But I don’t. I want to know more about you, Who you really are, what you look like, I want to know more about you. Unlike others, I’ve been given a messiah, One I could talk to about anything, Guardian angel, are you worried about me? I know I get hurt a lot and I hurt others. I know I’m tainted and cruel, I’m sorry. Can you forgive me? I don’t know what I was thinking. I regret it and I want to take it back. But I can’t… So, as I repent under a perpetual, gray light, Let us enjoy each other’s company, For I know all too well, Good things come to an end. Family, Friendships, Life, Love… So, may we hold hands and share an embrace? Just for a moment, please, Let us share a moment of eternal bliss. May 17,2013

Free me

Free me, I say free me
from the enternal damnation
of her death grip.
(I have no use, for love with her)
She does not know me,
She does not love me,
For if she would love me,
I'd love her back.

Come now, someone free me,
free me from the eternal hatred
that has grown between us.
I cannot take this torture anymore.
(My heart grows weak, my heart grows weak... I can't breath,
  I can't breath. She is crushing my windpipe! HELP ME!)

Listen I do not love you,
My heart belongs to someone else.
Someone who understands the pain I face.
I cannot love you, and will not love you, for my heart does not belong to you.

I pray to everything that is holy in this Godly, green Earth
Free me, free me!!
I say free me from this eternal torment and execute this monster!
(For my heart belongs to someone else.)

Just A Dream

Walking by the water
Holding hands together
You told me not to let go
As we let our feelings grow.

You held and kissed my hand
As we sit on the sand
We vowed with our hearts open
To love each other whatever happens.

The sunset reflects in your eyes
I can see not a thread of lie
And I believe in every word you say
I'll trust you even though things turn grey.

What a pleasant day that is
As we end it with a kiss
But when I hear someone scream
I realized it is only just a dream.

He said he loved me before we met
that he loved me in unconsciousness
Now I have loved in many degrees
but this saying remains a mystery.
It begs the question "what love is this"?
Is love not love of character and deed
and all other reasoning remiss?
Love comes easy 
I know right off 
a beautiful soul
I long to unlock
Attraction is simple but enchantment is rare
It's the substance of love that leaves you aware
One can promise a wealth to hold
but until it's seen it's only fools gold
Unexplainable connections may never end
but to trust ones character enough to depend
that is the key which locks love in
Therein lies loves lasting synonym
If love is not a conscious choice
what voice have deeds to tell
when if by chance enchantments spell
fades with many miles dispelled
So if enchanted I live without
yet find trust in the love I see
greater the blessing to dream awake
than enchanted by the one who sleeps

The Imposible Man

The minute I look at her, 
all things around me stop. 
Or seem so, since my heart 
beats so fast. Faster faster it 
beats. My mind melts, melts 
like a popsicle on the side walk 
on a hot summer day. The butterflies 
in my stomach flap up a storm, a tornado 
in my stomach. And every day, I fall in love 
even more so than the last. Every time, every 
time her eyes look upon me, I can't help but look 
so deep into them. Like orbs of pure and utter bliss, 
and I just get lost. Oh my impossible, improbable girl, 
how my search has been so long. The many mountains 
and rivers I've crossed in search of a place where loneliness 
ends. Even so, I have found you. But time, time, is not on my 
side. Too many obstacles, much like the rest, separate my morality 
and my love, from my mind. My impossible girl, oh how you look at me 
with those unwavering eyes. How you talk to me with that sweet tone in 
your voice. I don't know what I should do. I know not whether to wait, and 
let time tell it's tale, or if I act, and tell my tale for it. All the better. For it is 
uncertainty under certain events that dictate life in its truest form. I'm lost, so lost. 
Waiting, for my impossible girl to call for me, to finally, call for her impossible man.

November Dreams

A red maple leaf
Gaily pirouettes for last;  
Nestles on dewy green grass.

This afternoon fall
I felt closer to my dreams.
I'll see you on November.

My Rita

Rita, the feeling is so real
For you, of all the love and 
My Rita, how do I make you 
Loved, or out of fashion?

Rita, I’ll be the one for you
Forever by your side
My Rita, whatever it takes, I’ll 
Our hearts, we’ll never hide

Rita, you came to me my love
In just the nick of time
My Rita, tonight we’ll rise above
You’re in your red dress so fine

Rita, the feeling is so real
For you, of all the love and 
My Rita, how do I make you 
Loved, or out of fashion?

Stolen Night

Rain befall and sun scourge me 
I am left without shade to protect me
Amidst thousands yet lonely
Death pierces my heart and seized my right kidney
Half death yet living 
Million tear false on graved soul
How I wish she stay in my hand
Accident took her away unaware

My soul craved for her presence
Eyes shine bright at midnight
Spontaneous flow of heartfelt expression awake memory
I am king whom am I without a queen
I am a king whom am I without a crown 
I am a king whom am I without a throne
My kingdom shall forever reign in her heart
A million kisses fall on our lips yet hunger for more
Her lips is as succulent as breast
Tastes of her lips keep me awake
Her hugs warm my heart more than black coffee
To hell with sleep
Her boo clap to the rhythms of my heart
After all was said and done bed turned rumpled
Its 8a.m
Call hopped in from boss
Gust what happen?
You’re fired
I awake unto reality
Then I realized how much I missed my girl as it was all dream

My Madness, Me

My Madness, Me...

Confined by this straight-jacket,
strapped in, numb and dumbed,
a washed-out, has-been, also-ran,

body, eyes, the equilibrium of mind,
rattling like stones in an old tin-can.

Still, I am, 

I am,

and I am unchained,

my dreams taking flight, soaring,
above these claustrophobic walls,
of synapses, and dungeons of stone,

swooping through green valleys,
taking a detour to savour the joys,

soaked in torrential, evergreen memories,
of a younger man, with passion in his bone.

I am.

My wings unclipped, unshackled, free,

I am, and though I am unable to see,

I am.

At long last,

Tis trick of thought to dream thee so!
Still nearer mine thoughts I cannot release.
The burden of memories I cannot ease
For loves splendors linger still.
Mine most honest heart tortured under
your immortal delicacy
I am bound and chained with
passionate sorrow; half touching madness
For thou art the dream that fadeth too soon
Still in silent musings I am filled with a 
strange sweet hope that someday…. maybe.

I'm feeling you...

As we get intimately closer we approached the climactic altitude 
Of a mutual perception and understanding which include 
Mental conversations resembling telepathy in the nude 

Because I’m feeling you

I can tell by how you respond when we are talking
That your heart is closed tight like a coffin 
So I’m working the graveyard shift to get it open… 

Because I’m digging you

Let’s take time to find somewhere we’re both inclined to meet
While many are trying to lay in the fine fibers of your bed sheets 
I’m trying to find and define the fibers with which your mind speaks

Because I’m thinking of you

I want to propose to you so I really ought 
To engage you by placing the diamond ring I bought 
On your mind and marrying your every thought… 

Because I adore you

I want to feast on every idea leaving me with a tooth so sweet
I want to lick every crevice of every inch so I can get an oral fix 
To experience the flavor of your imagination from each orifice 

Because I’m tasting you

I want to strip and be soaked in our mental connection
From breast strokes to back strokes I swim in every direction 
So I can get your mind wet to go with this mental erection

Because I’m penetrating you

I want you to be the white picket fence with two dogs 
Green grass and a nice house with the dream job 
As well as vacations with the family abroad

Because my American dream is you

My thoughts of you are far from dense 
I massage your brain keeping your mind far from tense 
We have so much in common that us apart makes no sense

Because I’m missing You

I just wish you felt me the same way I’m feeling you
Like the thought of me leaving would be killing you 
Then you would understand how I’m willing to


I’m feeling you

I wake to find it wasnt a dream for me after all

I dream and hear the sounds of love in my heart

I see the light of caring and hope it does not part

I smell your skin as our bodies are entwined

I feel the warmth of your touch that calms my mind

I speak the poetic words and it bekons my soul to call

I wake to find it wasn't a dream for me after all

The Moon's Lullaby

Hush, dear. For I will stay—here, with you, holding you; forever, just for tonight 
I shall watch you sleep, unaware of the dark and the starless sky:
Just enough warmth and, of mother's tenderness, soft light
Keeping you from all that make babies cry:
Love, we know, knows not of 
Morns nor of

Forever dream you

I tripped over you
an angel cries in tunes
walking into love

Cinderalla you 
painting me such a story
falling into sleep

Hot most beautiful
the warm sweet love, sound of you're
echoing voice lilt

Stripped I am, to you
into the bone naked this soul 
stands in front sweetly

Walking along this
highroad to have you love kiss
holds inside beauty

Joy you sing out loud
seeing someone so perfect
finding a purpose

Such a dream shines you
looking to the east rising
jewels of sunshine

Finding that purpose
inspired and driven inside 
every single word 

My silence breathes out 
in you, sweet uttering gasps 
holding the air stops

Breathless in silence
what you have given me love
a brand new life, yes

Golden beautiful 
one in a thousand dreams I 
will with love, be one

Here forever 
to kiss you goodnight, as you 
babe always is true

Written in 5/7/5 count smiling

Sometimes I Like To Pretend Things Never Came To A End

Sometimes I like to pretend, things never came to a end. But over time, our love became a crime. I didn't know what we had, would ever end so bad. But then I knew things weren't right, when we started to fight. Now I walk down memory lane all the time, the pain is worst then committing a crime. We only caused eachother pain, but we were eachothers maine. I thought things would be alright, but I cried alot that night. I don't want things to change, without you my life is strange. You said you wanted me so much it started to hurt that you couldn't wait, now im just another person you hate. When you said you didn't care, I knew the person I loved was no longer there. You aren't the same, the new you is lame. We both fell, now it's hell. You use to always be here for me, like family. But now your nowhere in sight, things aren't right. Empty is all that I can feel, I still can't believe this is real. I didn't mean to let you get away, I didn't know what to say. Am i with the right guy, or am i telling myself a lie. I was afraid to loose what we had, but to you that choice was bad.

Love dreams

    Love dreams
			By Elaine Roy

Love lye's in the dreams of my heart, were he awakes me
Fallen, by the rain of tears, that fill my heart
Blind by the sun, until his shadow comes, to embrace me
There, he is on bend-id knee, lifting my chin to face him
It's when I see hope, in his eyes. My heart awakens
It's his gentle touch, that unveils my inner child
Were, butterflies and warm meadows embrace life in all amazement
It's there in his arms, I find my peace ; were his beating heart take me home
Words, have no meaning, for love has replace them; by tender touches to form our hearts into one!
We, see in smiles and feel in laughter; as we create our happy thoughts!
Rapped up in the blanket of stars, were wonder unveils love's spender!
Thus time,  has lost it's hands, to finds a greater meaning.  For  love ,now sifts through the sands; until it see one's heart, finding  true loves greatest meanings!

Beauty in the Shape of a Rose

Last night I had this dream,
 where your smile was still alive.
I watched our hearts beat,
 beauty poured from your eyes.
Please let me sleep,
 just don't tell me its a lie.

Aurora I swear I loved you,
  but perfection never lasts.
As once you were so near,
 it feels you're never coming back.
Everyday you built your walls,
 and drew your lines for hate to cross.

Everyday is the same but I swear today I've changed.
Because yesterday is gone as tomorrow slowly drifts away.
Your still dancing in my dreams I cannot get away.

I wake to see your smiling face,
 yet it will not warm this heart.
I should have given in,
 somewhere before the start.

Dreams of ghosts walk down that lonely road.
I saw myself holding hands with the reasons i cannot sleep.
And with these bloodshot eyes I only dream that I can wink.
All I ever did was spill poison over hope.
There beauty stood a rose,
with poison and a rope.
Goodbyes weren't meant to be like this.
I'm done walking backwards Wasting with the summer sun.
Here I am in the dead of winter with a million reasons to start over.

Love at first sight

The poet: But even the muse wishes my auditory fell asleep:
In trembling rhyme, in mule’s rhythm I look for magic sound
While there, burning sunshine did quickly steep
In the silent green of our crying valley round;
Who brought in heaven the secret flame from hell?
What a heartless heat, just saints, heroes, wise men can endure!
A dream of life without death, and youth without old age, in which we dwell;
Against a multitude of evil’s temptations but our love is sure.
But with the devil’s tzuica, the love in love with me can tire;
One day I touched the sleeping muse’s breast and learnt the rest:
As fire, drink, the women and other dangerous things of much desire;
I asked the muse to be my merry guest, and did it at our best. 
The dream of death is life, except the dream to live that light
Whose verse was built from the beginning fire:
                                           love at first sight.

I  worshiped  Sunshie  for you 
I am innocent for this feeling
In this dream talk only  with me about your eyes  strom  in the broken  boat 
I was missed 
I  told the sun that  reservesa  seat  for rain feast 
I sit here ,in house  of cloud ,to ask him sing you lullaby 
It has such a lonely color 
Your eyes in the world 
I do not  think  about sunset of leaving  to leave alone the night 
It was dream of the day after not seeing you 
I give you a rain  of the  last night 
Until  hello day

Make Haste! My dreams! For night ensures 
That in the night I'm only yours 
So, bring the darkness; bring the night 
Until dawn brings It's humbling light.

The stars can sparkle, they may glow 
But, in my mind alone, I know 
The comfort of your radiant smile 
Which day was shown for just a while.

For countless days, my memory cries 
And craves the twinkle in your eyes 
Your touch; your quiet, gentle kiss 
Are, in the daytime, greatly missed.

But when the shroud of black surrounds 
And air is filled with lonely sounds 
I close my eyes; Then so it gleams 
Your light; That guides me through my dreams...

Dear Love

Dear love
won't you find me
find me like the wind does the trees
like those girls from the movies

Dear love
the tears run down my face
leaving stains like rain upon a glass pane
you've done it again
left me torn and thinking
where is this love that you show me in the movies

O dear love
I long for that great masterpiece
that love that never ends
that love you promised me in all my dreams

Dear love
will you keep eluding me
like the sun does the night
leaving me mere trails of what might
teasing me
taunting me
making me yearn for that which only you can give me
