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...

ONE

Tear drops trickle down your cheeks
I know how hard you've tried
Put your heart and soul on paper
Only to be denied

You've thought..
If only someone really knew
If somehow they could understand
These works I write are my last dream
My hopes of a promised land

You long to be a special girl
Not just a number in the crowd
With skill you paint a masterpiece
The canvas makes you proud
Your words are filled with royalty
They're lofty and incredibly deep
And for the casual passerby 
The climb is perhaps too steep

You've thought..
If only someone really knew
If somehow they could understand
These works I write are my last dream
My hopes of a promised land

But what if one already knew
Only one, but they understood
And this one believed in your dream
They longed for all you could

Would just that one be enough
To renew hope of a promise land
I tell you girl here and now
There is one.. And I'm that man!

ROUTE 66

We're ready to rip on a fun road trip
The top down we'll be cruising fast
Gonna get our kicks on Route 66
All geared up for a totally hip blast
We'll drive and sing, do groovy things
From the Windy City to nifty, cool L.A.
Over 2,400 miles of culture and styles
Oh, dying to play and sow some hay
Cities and towns and messing around
Tracks conceived with friends Tim and Eve
Hand on the stick this our Route 66 fix
California dreaming. ya gotta believe!

WORTH THE LONG

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
Worth the long

EVENING CHARMS

I miss the fragrance gentle sweet
Of evening primrose beneath my sheet
I dream pink blossoms in the night
You beside me in candle light
My windows open the door is too
Your perfumed scent is overdue
The sun is setting over the gentle stream
My eyes may close but I can dream!

Fear of death

The fear of death

When I was a young man, a great fear of dying
Did bother my mind all the while
I’d dream I did murder, I’d dream I got murdered
Till one day I forgot how to smile
The dread of old age would torture me daily
And I was so scared of the dark
The joy of my life it just kind of faded
And often the terror was stark

Then one day I had me, this wonderful dream
This dream saw me lying there dead
But I was still there, looking down from the ceiling
All peaceful with no sign of dread
I learned from that day that death is the kind one
When the fear of him does dissipate
Then death will come out like a beautiful mother
As she rides on the breeze of ones fate

Now always , I live in the true hand of faith
For life always knows what is best
So I will relax as I’m held in her bosom
As she takes me away for a rest
The story goes on, and it will do forever
Cause life, well it never can die
I’m part of the trees, And I ride on the breeze
For I am that wholeness, am I.

Save me Cinderella

Save me Cinderella,
Hold my hopes in your hands
Struggle to save my soul,
And balance others demands.

Singing with the songbirds
Making music with mice,
Fairytales do come true,
Once we find paradise

Shining with the style,
Of radiant beauty
Take nothing for granted,
See joy in all you see.

Save me Cinderella,
Hold my hopes in your hands
Struggle to save my soul,
And balance others demands.

Let me love like your heart
Weathered but not worn out,
There is joy in your eyes.
Teach me what its about.

Save me Cinderella,
Give me back my childhood
When there was hopeful days
and princes were still good.

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
A poem for my Girlfriend for our anniversary :) pls comment and rate... you are free to judge and criticize my work :) God Bless

RAINBOWS

A young girl who believed in rainbows
all those colors were just so cool
You grew up, life's storms battered you
these last few years have been so cruel

Hard to remember dreams from long ago
a beautiful Princess you wanted to be 
Floods of tears blinding future's hope
a single mom with a child your reality

But this morning a rainbow greeted you
all those colors were still cool to see
Young girl's dream to chase that rainbow
this time you did and it led right to me

You finally found the end of a rainbow
indeed there was a pot of pure gold
Not the kind found in rocks or rivers
But a man with many secrets untold

And he longed to share them with you
called you Princess and took your hand
My first secret when I was a young boy
was to grow up and become your man!

Rebirth

Ignite,
The missing light,
Forget,
What's behind.
Just believe,
That love comes again...

'Cause,
The skies,
Are like a hard glide,
In a shining rainbow's light...

All dreams and fantasies,
Can be reality,
'Cause fantasy,
Is based on reality...
But all histories aren't the same...

'Cause,
Sometimes, we dive,
In our lives...

So,
Don't judge,
For what you see,
Judge,
For what it is...,
'Cause time passes,
But, memories remain...

And,
Listen,
To your heart,
'Cause,
The body, does,
The mind, thinks,
And, the heart, feels...,
While, the soul, lives...

So,
Always remember,
To remember the past,
To live the present,
And to wait and pursue the future...

Listen to your heart,
Before you are telling goodbye,
'Cause destiny,
Might lead to demise...,
But, remember that destiny can be changed...

Life is unpredictable,
But space and time,
Could be controlled...
And even if some die,
We may survive...

Remember,
That life,
Might have an endless beginning...

All that remains,
Is to be reborn...

Velvet Wings

Ignorant to passing time
Reality strikes its deafening chime
Unspoken words pass between
I and you, my darling queen

Lay your weary head to rest
With your arms across your chest
Now it's time to close your eyes
Whisper your final goodbyes

Let me go, we'll both be free
Cross the wasteland, past the sea
Find the path to heaven's light
Break away from endless night

Embracing tears of bitter pain
Falling lightly with the rain
Out of reach, I hear your song
Alone again, I sing along

Let me go, we'll both be free
Cross the wasteland, past the sea
Find the path to heaven's light
Break away from endless night

From the night. . .
I watched your velvet wings take flight
I never saw you so alive
So alive
I watched your velvet wings take flight
I'll never ever say goodbye
Never say goodbye

Life has ended, you have won
Death befriended, pain is gone
Fly away into the light
Crystal clear and shining bright
Close your eyes for final rest
Meeting among the blessed

Let me go, we'll both be free
Cross the wasteland, past the sea
Find the path to heaven's light
Break away from endless night

From the night. . .
I watched your velvet wings take flight
I never saw you so alive
So alive
I watched your velvet wings take flight
I'll never ever say goodbye
Never say goodbye

I let you go so you'll be free
Cross the path of darkened sea
I watched your velvet wings take flight
I can never say goodbye
Never say goodbye

We Can Dream On

It used to be that many dreamed. At least that is the way it seemed. But that was more than a few years ago now. A good life in which we all starred; a house with fence around the yard: The dream which the hard-working man could strive for. . . Chorus: We can dream on; we can dream on. We can dream on; we can dream on. We only had to go to school, Be sure to follow every rule, like paying toward our own security plan with special taxes all must pay. They rise; we pay them anyway, believing we’ll get by in our great gold years Chorus: We can dream on; we can dream on. . . In years when wars were being fought, The dream, still strong, was being sought, by Veterans returning to their loved ones. Prosperity came after war, for everyone kept wanting more, so things improved, at least as I recall them. . . Chorus: We can dream on; we can dream on. . . The kids who went to college would then graduate and as they should, could work in their profession, raise their families. Eventually they’d have a house and growing older with their spouse, look forward to retirement, their home paid for. . . Chorus: We can dream on; we can dream on. . . Retirement funds in just one year ran dry and CEO’s, I hear, got bonuses while laying off their workers. Young graduates cannot find work and horrors round each corner lurk for those who lose their jobs and source of income. Chorus: We can dream on; we can dream on. . . Today we have to buckle down and try hard not to show a frown while searching for a job that pays less money while politicians talk their talk but don’t know how to walk the walk, and sit there making sure they get their raises! Chorus: We can dream on; we can dream on. . . The Congress just keeps playing dumb And half the country has gone numb while stressing over what’s in store for us now because of lies that we were told, like how we’d live when we got old. “Dream on” I say (but not in Mama’s same tone). Chorus: We can dream ON; We can dream ON. . . For the HALLELUJAH Contest of Frank H.

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....

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

NO LIGHT WITHOUT YOU

I remember when you were only a name
I remember the first day we met
I remember how I made you laugh
So many moments I'll never forget

Do you remember that autumn day walk
Do you remember when I held your hand
Do you remember how we kissed
The day I became your man

You were air, I breathed you in
You were music to my beating heart
You were the best dream I ever had
Then I woke up and we were apart

Now I close my eyes night and day
I'd trade the world for one more dream
Girl, I look for you in every 
crowd
This reality is so unkind and mean

Since you've been gone I can't sleep
The thought of dreaming is a fantasy
The sun's high but it's midnight
There's no light without you for me

No light without you
Night memories make me blue
No light without you
No dreams will be coming true
No light without you 
No light without you for me

Don't Fall

~Don’t Fall ~

Yet another restless night
Bad dreams every other hour
I turn on the light hoping 
It will calm me down 
Yet it takes me back in time
And there he stands
Like a shadow in the night 
Naked as can be 
Laughing an evil laugh
As he says to me
Mio Piccola Puttana
I can’t let him get to me
So please teardrops

~Don’t Fall~

I look into the mirror
I see that pasty skin
Paired with double chins
I think to myself starving won’t Even get the fat off
Fast enough
I feel so defeated yet still
I tell myself 
Teardrops

~Don’t Fall~

Looking for a way out
I feel like I am stuck inside my Past
Reliving every moment
One after another
It feels like it is happening all over Again
I feel the tears in my eyes so I say
Teardrops please

~Don’t Fall~

Now I can see him in the faces of Strangers
I feel so alone and out of place
I still force myself to get up each Day
Even though I want to hide 
It is such a struggle 
Day after day
And to add to the pain 
I have to make sure those
Tears 

~Don’t Fall~

If you touch me I might break
If you are hear to see me 
Please don’t hurt me 
That I wouldn’t be able to take
Know that I am like a dam ready To break
So if you were to hug me 
Hold my hand or touch me 
In any other comforting way
This dam may break 
And there won’t be any telling 
The tears 

~Don’t Fall~

Sedated Hope

The age of premonition and belief in false speculations…
A firm believer of the grace now devoted to inelegance…
All it stated was an untainted fib…
Darkened fiend now restive within…

Falling by the force of an ill-defined revelation…
Swimming through cadavers of lies…
Illusive delusions cast before my perception…
All hopes are sedated by my hands…

 Sheer inanity I commit exhibiting my buoyant stance…
Imperceptible shadows ridicule a common jest…
And those divine shall affix to fantasizing…
…As the rest battle with a fettered fiend within…

Sightlessly chose to pursue the affectionate call…
Veracity being a neglected constituent…
Sedated hope – call of the day…
…As aspiration thaws endlessly to oblivion…

Hope tends to soar higher by the progress of the seconds…
Peak exists for all which tends to be limitless…
Crash the new-born hope which unites with obscurity…
 A premature plummet is beneficial to the torn essence…

A moon once elegant now darkened by the malevolent night…
Haunted by the iniquity ever so fervent…
And I run towards that which proffers solace…
Hands of murder soaked in the blackest blood…

The despaired yearning silently for another sunrise…
Darkened soul haunted by notions of a dim collapse…
Equipped with a blade ever so assertive…
The green earth now stained with blood of the fallen…

 And desires for that which lies in the other realm…
…Endlessly distant from the dream which was once breathing…
Attempting to never dream for the unattainable…
Sedated hope – call of the day…

" I HAVE A DREAM !!!"

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.

what is a Dream

           A thought, A wish, A cry without evidence or having been seen.
           A Light, The Darkness,or what might have been.
           A touch, A scent, a place of grandeur.
           The search in abyss,unable to soar.
           The fear,Triumph,forgetting all will.
           Silence or laughter,the solace of still.
           abundance,humility,and finally, peace.
           Away from the chaos is where one can be, all in the moment of a glorious
           Dream.

The laughing moon

It's here now under a converted sky
Where daylight has loss it’s might
Hours before the green hills had sight, with 
splattered  hints of yellow wild flowers so bright
Now time has casts a different light
  
It here now where the heavens sings an evening song 
With twinkled lights on a moon lit prong
Dancing stars and dreaming of mars 
Its here on this transformed spot 
I will sit and jot

It is here now as I lay back on this cool grass, and write a story 
with the heavens the color of quarry
Of jeweled eyes in the skies 
that connected to stories, some disguised 
With silver spoons and astrological loons
 
On dream away, dream on by
to the earths motions and lullabies
It is here now time to take a brake
from life’s work ,and worries and heart ache 
Try it yourself remember when, you were a child
when you looked up the night and smiled amen

Lost In My Mind

I woke up to the sounds of gun shots
I’m not in hell, just in a prison cell I call home- Paterson
Behind these bars
The world looks so different like an atomic bomb of colors exploded while I was 
gone.


Chorus

Bullets flying through the air
Cutting lives like there was a way to replace that
Like an old pair of Nikes weathering the storm after fifty years of dust and 
neglect
I wish for a better place,
A nicer home,
Better living conditions for my mom

Verse 2
Walking through the streets in my mind
Never thinking about my life
I live in the past when a notebook produced my only escape
But another shot flies through the air and brings me back to reality- I’m a 
murderer
Never to see light again.

Chorus

Bullets flying through the air
Cutting lives like there was a way to replace that
Like an old pair of Nikes weathering the storm after fifty years of dust and 
neglect
I wish for a better place,
A nicer home,
Better living conditions for my mom

Verse 3
Adrenaline pumping as I’m ready to punch the cold bars,
But I wake up for a second time and I realize
Life continues when you die
No matter what.
And I was lost in my mind but not anymore.
I know who I am,
I know what’s right and what’s wrong,
But most importantly- I understand.

Goodbye

We're headin' out
Our bags are packed
The dream is over and
The boxes are stacked
But I can't...forget...this place
I don't know how
How to let it go
I can't find a way
I can't go with the flow
All I know...is that I love...this place

The faces pass and memories fade
My whole life...turns to shade
All I know...is that I'll miss...this place

No more fun
Gotta buckle down
No more games
Gotta drop this crown
I hope I don't...forget...this place
Days in the sun and
Nights by the fire
I'll miss those times
With a burnin' desire
I'm gonna...miss...this place

The faces pass and memories fade
My whole life...turns to shade
All I know...is that I'll miss...this place

We're headin' out
Our bags are packed
The dream is over and
The boxes are stacked
But I can't...forget...this place
I don't know how
How to let it go
I can't find a way
I can't go with the flow
All I know...is that I love...this place

The faces pass and memories fade
My whole life...turns to shade
All I know...is that I'll miss...this place
Goodbye...

Dormancy

Silently slipping away through sleep,

A constant drift into further sea's,

Never reawake.

 

Lying breathlessly,

At peace.

With winds that cleanse

And carry me.

 

When I dream.


Details | Lyric | |

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...

Generic Minds

generic minds listen to generic music
have generic thoughts that are unknowingly abusive
watch generic things talk about generic things
gee this generic *****is spreading like a disease
better get your flu shot 
thats what they said to me
a suicidal vaccine 
a subliminal killing spree
its contagious and the outrageous
thing about it is that the people are blind in an eye
that they didn't even know they had
it's sickening to watch these clueless civilians 
inside the looking glass
with nightmares of being free
without a key to their mind
for it is trapped in the frequency
in the illusion of time
bathed in our universe
killing all that refuse to see
those that admit to hypocracy
or see the message in hip hop
how cant you see
the message in the lyrics that
bring adolescents to their knees
from bullet wounds conflicting their flesh
contradicting that they're the best
but the songs keep telling them that they dont need no rest
that they dont wanna go home
that they should ride alone
with the gat as their only companion
and so the only path they choose is the one that they're told
until they grow old and hope turns to a window pane
inside a window pane, until all they feel is pain
they realize that the music itself is ashamed
so whats to look up to
when you cant even speak when you cant even walk because you look so bleak
your eyes are sunken from the tv you're infested with the dee zees
now its too late to turn around and live for your conscious
so when youre screaming oh please
close your eyes and bring your mind to life
open your eyes for the first time
and never wonder why
since the answer this entire time
has been inside
and you better find it before you die
you dont want your soul to be in a pool with all the others
a buncha brothers missing their mothers
but only seeing strangers
only feeling the haters
wishing they would have used their minds when they had them
and now its too late,
now it's time for another new born fate to grab them

THIS MUST BE LOVE

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!

WHO AM I

I am a child of the palace
Living like a slave
So that these human can relate
That fate
Never comes in a sliver plate
My life is great
No spoon, give me a spade

I am a winner without a race
A stubborn stain you can’t erase
I am known without a face
Set free without a case
When I get lost
I’m sketched and never traced

Too believe or not to
Is a choice
So to me, God is a choice

That inner voice 
That refuses to shut up 
When nobody is listening
Life is not a math problem
So I never looked for solutions
When I smile, it means I’m happy
When I cry, it means I’m alive

I was born 
But never raised
I am adored
But never praised
I am a child of that palace
Living like a slave
So that you can relate

That human are born to be loved 
And things are made to be used
But now things are loved 
And you and I are being used
And now we are confused
Over what we’ve become
Objects of envy hate and blame

I am a solder without ammo
I am the white keys in your piano
I am the fragrance in your flower garden
The only blessing from the curse of Eden

I was schooled but never taught
I was fooled but never caught
I was hated but never abated
Betrayed but never delayed 
Discriminated but never serrated,
Crowned but never celebrated
Mistaken but never regretted
I am a nightmare
That was never unrevealed

I am a gift wrapped up in a small curse
A jewel in life’s golden purse
A bird with wet wings
Waiting for the sun rays
So I can fly
And dance in the sky


I am the mirror
The reflection of what I am
And not who I am 
So who am I?

Once Upon A Dream

Once Upon A Dream


We dream of our life,ones we thought were intertwined 
by fate,by destiny,by our past.
Now on theses day we don't speak for 
we've forgotten what we shared.
What we lost split us apart for I fell into darkness 
as you fell into light.
We reached for each other but to far to meet.
As we both fell,we both forgot.
Now we can't reach,we can't speak,we can't breathe.
To ignorant to realize what happen and fell for
what took us away.Our dream 
our lives,and our reality.They were all childhood 
dreams now so ever
forgotten not even time can replace.
What it meant to see,no more screaming,
no more tears.Close you eyes as we 
hand and hand in our one minded dream.

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

I TOOK A CHANCE

I took a chance
Told you how I feel
Showed my hand
My heart revealed

This wasn't the plan
Meant to dance slow
But holding you there
Girl, I had to know

I took a chance
Just let my secrets fly
Your face says it all
We're dancing goodbye

This wasn't the plan
When I said, I love you
Your heart would melt
You'd say, I love you too

I took a chance
Just let my secrets fly
Your face says it all
We're dancing goodbye

You're in my arms
I have no regrets 
We have this song
And it's not over yet

So I close my eyes
Dream sweet romance
When time stands still
Glad I took a chance

The Old Oak Tree

I want to go outside
I guess I could if i tried...
I never have the guts to do it though
I'm always scared what they would think of me if I go
Outside seems so welcoming
The breeze is practically inviting
How I long to accept its invitation
To sit by the oak tree and just listen
The grass rustling through my fingers 
The stillness of the night as I linger
The wind whistles a song
And I know that I will stay out here very long
I fall asleep
Next to the old oak tree
I hear the morning birds sing their song for me
I smile at them and I realize I'm truly happy for the first time
But when I suddenly wake up 
I cry
Because it was all a wonderful dream
And I knew it would never happen to me

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

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

DREAM WORLD

In the dream world where reality becomes a fantasy 
And fantasy becomes reality.

The impossible is made possible and death becomes no threat. Mountains turn to a plain ground and are surmountable.

In the dream world I can do the impossible and see the invincible. I can spread my wings, soar and fly through the clouds reaching the altitude of my fortune and destiny.

In the dream world I am unstoppable and unquestionable, conquering all my adversaries. The treasures of this world are at my disposal, kings and kingdoms are my subjects.

In the dream world wishes don’t count but choices are made. That is why I have made the choice to have you as mine forever. In my dream world where there is no pain but gain, no distress but fortress, no cross but crown.

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.

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

DOG NAMED BLUE

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

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?

Butterfly

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...

In Dreams

In dreams I do a thousand things
Reality will not record:
A heroine of myriad tales
Wielding Truth's divining sword;
A daring dragon slayer
Riding tempest'ous seas,
Fighting for the poor and weak,
Fulfilling anxious pleas.

In dreams I do a thousand things:
I conquer the unknown;
I reign a queen in far off lands
Upon a golden throne.
I judge between evil and good,
Discerning wrong and right,
Commander of a legion
Campaigner for the light.

In dreams . . . but I must live on earth
And walk as all must walk
Wrestle with the winds of woe,
Guard my thoughts, my talk.
I would be a pure protector
Of the small ones and the meek,
Accepting life's misfortunes;
My heart and conscience keep.

Perhaps the things I do in dreams
Are not at all so grand,
Perhaps my home is better
Than a distant foreign strand.
It could be greater here to dwell
With loved ones staunchly stand;
Walk life's pathway with my brother,
Heart to heart, hand in hand.

Destiny or Dream

Is this an obsession
Or just my imagination?
Is my mind running wild with the thought of you?
Is Destiny just a dream...
Or a dream come true?

I go to bed at night
Thinking of my life to be.
I close my eyes and you are all I see.
Is this future to be
A dream or perhaps my secret reality?
Do I dream with insight?
Will my dreams come to life?

Superstitious I may be,
But who is to say 
You are not my destiny
Every sign points to you.
We have walked the same path
Neither of us had not even a clue.
So many times I've given up on loving you
However my heart stays true.

I feel as though I am a trapped bird
Waiting to be set free,
Waiting for destiny.
You are the wind beneath my wings,
Yet I can not fly.
I am a trapped bird,
Waiting to be one with the sky.

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…

**chorus** 
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 

*chorus*

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
Ooh…ohh…

*Chorus* 

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… 

*chorus*

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

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.

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

I WISH I WERE HIM

I wish I were him
We'd be more than friends
Just a guy in the crowd
Who's out but kinda blends in

I wish I were him
Had his way with words
He seems completely natural
The bees and the birds

I wish I were him
Could serenade with song
Melt all your defenses
Until you sing along

I wish I were him
My arms holding you tight
Looking into your eyes
Girl, I'd be kissing you tonight

I wish I were him
He never seems to doubt 
You love his confidence
He knows what you're about

I wish I were him
I wouldn't be missing you
With rejection for a roommate
I wouldn't be torn in two

I wish I were him
I wish I were him

Steed of Light

I watch you prancing, pawing earth;
Your eyes glow almost like a flame,
You toss your sculptured head so freely
And flounce, unchecked your flowing mane.

Born brother to the rolling prairies,
Your spirit kin to earth's four winds,
I gaze at you and vainly wonder:
Do you know how truly we are friends?

Do you know that deep within me
Dwells a soul loving liberty
And a heart that yearns and hungers
To run as you do, wild and free?

Have you noticed I'm a dreamer,
That my eyes see visions, bright,
And my spirit flies within me
A prancing, pawing steed of light.

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.

Dream

It starts with a dream. 
It starts with the inner motivation to succeed, 
the inner heart to prosper, 
the inner power to shine. 
It starts with a dream. 

To shine above all the darkness, 
To prosper in the midst of downfall, 
To succeed among failure, 
It all starts with a dream. 

The journey of life, 
full of obstacles and detours, 
where without the guiding light, 
evil penetrates our soul, 
and our hearts die slow, 
and our minds drift to the unknown, 
the oblivion full of earthly desires, 
where the devil clocks double shift on all of his jobs. 

On this end our souls crumble, 
we give in and lose it all. 

But the Lord gave me the light, 
to shine among the dark,
to stand my ground and firm my feet, 
that I will not stumble nor fall, 
nor hold that thought in my soul, 
rather I will illuminate the dark, 
and he will make me whole, 
once more.

Take Me Far Away

Take me take me far away

To the place for which I pray;

To the place that is Divine

Built by God Himself and fine.

Take me take me far away,

I am dreaming day by day,

To the place where I’m protected,

Speaking words is sure method.

Take me take me far away

Where I want to be and stay,

Where I feel that I am precious

Met with love, enjoy the pleasures.

Take me take me far away,

Show the Light, Your Secret Way

Which is leading into Peace,

Where I’m happy and released.

Take me take me far away

To the place for which I pray;

To the place that is Divine –

Where All The Best is Mine.

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.

Over The Bridge

It is here I am safe
It is here that I know
but over the bridge 
Is where I must go

The bridge that gives passage
over quick muddy water
though why I say that
I don't know why I bother

over the bridge 
is a tall oak tree
and standing beneath it
is someone waving at me

crossing the bridge 
I see a man standing there
with paint splatered pants
and a head of white hair

looking closer I see 
exactly who's there
I see it's my papa
and I can't help but stare

I run right toward him 
and give him a hug
I ask how he got here
his response is a shrug

it's then I remember 
the fact that he'd died
it's then I remember
the tears that i'd cried

I ask how it felt
when he had died
he then looks at me 
and he promptly replied

he calmed all my fears
about what lies boyond
then he looks up 
because the suns almost gone

he says I must go
before the sun sets
but I don't want to leave
I'm not quite ready yet

he gives me a hug 
before I go
then tells me I can't share
the things I now know

I give a quick nod 
looking up at the sky
I don't understand
but I don't have time to ask why

turning around 
I try not to cry
I just cross the bridge 
when the sun leaves the sky

I turn back to look
one last time at the tree
but my papa is gone
as was meant to be

WHERE YOU ARE

I don't need a million dollars
Yeah, I can pass on the cool car
Don't have to have the fashion
Just need to be where you are
In reality you don't know me
But in fantasy we're never apart
So I long for that dream state
Where I've captured your heart
If these feelings aren't authentic 
Then I'm a huge fan of fake
Cause when I see the Sandman
I start to dream and girl it's great
Oh yeah you're great
You know you're great

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.

NOT ASHAMED

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

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.

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

Beyond the Frontier

Where am I? Why is it dark?
This isn’t what I had in mind when I left the park…
Why isn’t the wind whispering…the songbirds singing?
All I remember is a telephone ringing…
A scream and a crash and a pain in my side…
Is this what happens after one’s died?
I don’t feel like myself, I feel wild and free,
Yet I’m cold and alone, 'stead of filled with glee.

My whole life I’ve studied, and pondered, and prayed,
Trying to fathom what would happen this day
But now that it’s here, I’m beginning to fear
Maybe the afterlife’s not what it appears…
It’s certainly not what I’ve been told by my preacher
Or my parents or brother or best friend or teacher…
Is it a bad thing, or is it good?
Maybe it’s just not quite understood...

While I was on Earth, I just couldn’t wait
To meet good St. Peter at the heavenly gate
And ask him a question or query or two
“What was my purpose?” “What good did I do?”
“What’s it all for?” “How does it all flow?”
“Can I have one more body, one more try, one more go?”
But where is the angel? Where is the gate? And
If this is Hell, then where is Ol’ Satan?
Am I a lost soul? Am I forgotten?
Am I to be left here until I am rotten?

Lo and behold! what, now, can this be?
Is this a wonderful spiritual epiphany?
Is this the magical feeling all souls receive
When they leave Earth? Oh! was I that naïve?
How could I have not seen the realism?
Why was I consumed in man-made idealism?
This is more wondrous than all I was taught
Oh, all the times I argued and fought
With others, ‘bout how their views were asinine
Now I see, theirs were just as wrong as mine!
Little I thought was actually correct!
How, why, did I let others petty beliefs infect
My untouched, my pure, my virgin mind?
I regret all the hours I self-tortured to find
That compared to what I see now, I was empty and blind…

Wait - - What is this that I see?
What is this gateway that is revealed unto me?

Now a door is opened to my immortal soul
I am expected now to enter my life’s final goal…
I am scared, intimidated, but still I am glad…
For the truth I have just seen is anything but bad.
This is the end of my journey, I’ve nothing to fear,
For now I am going Beyond the Frontier.

Leave me with my dreams

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.

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
Infiltrate
We Fight
Love over hate

Dark Lullaby

Go to sleep little child;
Close your eyes and shut them tight,
For we do not know if day will break
And be swallowed up by night.

But for now, worry not, my dear;
The dark's not as bad as it seems.
Though darkness looms over the future,
You can still escape into your dreams.

Lie still my darling baby;
Breathe calmly and breathe slow
Enjoy the quiet of the tranquil night
And the moon's hypnotic glow.

Worry not about the closet
Or the things under your bed;
Escape into Dreamland, my dear,
Safe from all the things you dread.

And if tomorrow fails in coming,
At least you will not be here;
Fly away my child, to the Land of Dreams...

Or be consumed by your fears.

Dream

Life to be lived
I have realized to appreciate
The heart must answer destiny’s call
And find the courageous steps
To move forward with a goal in mind
Guiding thoughts on paths of inspiration
And pray that love, laughter and pure bliss
Will be the faithful companion by my side
That when days seem dark
And the day’s challenge seems a cold tiding
Will decorate the soul with bright promise
For the dream perched upon the heart
Sings the sweetest melody
So that when the soul listens
Hears the music of tomorrow
And dances to a faith that won’t die
I am no stranger to this world
Where life to be lived and lived fully
The dream must be breathed and embraced daily

Beautiful Nightmares

Over worked imaginations of a fine tuned mind of several misunderstanding thoughts that were dreams that changes daily like the seasons.  I can't explain it; Its an emotional dreamer with shared thoughts that is expressed through poetic forms.  Sometimes its turned into tears that hit the paper, call it my poetry over flow.
Always wondered how far I could and will go, not wanting the limits to be the sky, maybe Pluto.  Touching stars along the way and maybe some hearts of those who will listen.  Showing me some type of love, I'm lacking.

Some dream of the sunrise and cannot see the beauty behind the sun.  The moon is just waiting for its time to shine.  Time is'nt forgotten or lost within the tide.  nothing more to hide besides the washed up dreams that turn into beautiful nightmares, lost dreams that seems to be absorbed by the stars.  And observed by on lookers; watchers that watch and wait for things taken. Their schemers of stolen dreams and its not their fault because of who they are. Perfection comes hard even for dreamers.  Just keep moving like the water under the bridge leaving trails of thoughts, bubbles rising to the top.

Trapped in other visions.  Vivid gifts transformed and misused.  I often feel abused but from those who are chosen. Burnt offerings in a crystal ash tray, slow burning, thoughts going up in smoke choking images easily misunderstood but its clear.  Choke on the truth, cough up what matters most not counting the lies.  You know your wrong coming up with excuses its constant you're hurting inside.  Coming to the people you know who shows the love "Im sorry", missing their true thoughts. What are you searching for?  
No fear along side of mercy.  Not concern with the things that could hurt me, Im just me man enough to take in my personal pain. Assuming my position of who Im going to be in this lifetime. Drying tears from my eyes. I love dreaming of my passionate beautiful nightmares.

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!"

Last Night I Dreamt

Last night I dreamt
That the world was all at rest
From vice exempt
Filled with songs of mortals blessed
(Refrain)
And we waltzed to the strains of a song
'Neath the arbour of love and repose
Glad in heart at the absence of wrong
'Mid the lilacs and hedges of rose

Last night I dreamt
That I danced the night away
In some attempt
To hold back the morning's gray 
(Refrain)
And we waltzed to the strains of a song
'Neath the arbour of love and repose
Glad in heart at the absence of wrong
'Mid the lilacs and hedges of rose

Last night I dreamt
Of an arbour filled with light
And then I wept
When it vanished from my sight
(Refrain)
And I've naught but a memory dear
Of the dresses of silk and brocade
Of the moon and the stars shining clear
And the fond wish that I could have stayed

A Silent Weeping

~ I lay in repose, in calmness and quietness Silence and stillness, words unspoken Only the flutter of my heart and breathe As still as a photograph, lost in my thoughts ~ And in my solitude, I dream silent dreams ~ I dream, I go riding a black horse A cloud of dark is my hair I wear a green velvet coat And the snow is falling, falling ~ And in my stillness, I dream silent dreams ~ A thousand petals fall and scatter Beautiful red roses twirling, swirling They descend fair and calm and silent Laying on the snow covered ground ~ And in my obliviousness, I dream silent dreams ~ My soul dwells above the clouds The turmoil of life forgotten I am voiceless and at peace But is that my silent weeping ~ And I lament, that I must depart my dreams ~ ~ Lyric December 7, 2012

Dream on

 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.

Three lovers

Three lovers: by Trinity Chasara 14/3/14
I followed two bliss-drunk lovers
Down a country path
Through flitting shadow
The great void of silence
Soothing sweet waves of moonlight
Just to be close to the warmth
That did freely flow gently
Over gentle lips and flaming touches
Munificent creatures in the best entwine of desire
‘My beautiful lover,’ I heard him say
With voice tainted with faux of charm
And the hues of love did spread on her cheeks
Like the beauteous designs of butterflies
That in memory’s cathedral yawned litanies
Sprawled over random hypnotic motions
I looked and looked and drank the sight
Two blossoms warbling flatteringly
Over a dreamy delight
But like birds they did see the stranger
And flew away in flutter
Down the clustered weeds
Of a surreptitious quest

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, I was dreaming                                                                   
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                                                                
I was dreaming of you; my love

WAITING

We are waiting, we're waiting here
Longing to cross the sea
We are waiting, we're anticipating
To be near you, your face to see

We are flying, we're flying there
Like a bird across the sky
We are flying, it's so exciting
Thoughts of you, take us high

Can you hear, can you hear us 
We're coming down the hall
Can you hear, we're very near
We speak your name in southern drawl

You come running, you are running
Around the corner our eyes meet
You come running, for us your gunning
With pitter patter of precious feet

No longer waiting, no one is waiting
You are near, your face we see
Soon let's go flying, it'll be exciting
Let's go home, and be a family!

In the Eyes of the Beholder

For he/she who knows, has seen,
Beyond the vision of faux beams
Radiant, candid as the beauty keen
In the eyes of beholder's dreams

‘Beauty' conceived physical
Shows signs of mortality
Inner beauty seems biblical
Survives the soul of eternity

For the mother's exposed breasts
To feed her breast-feeding child
For when Blessed Teresa smiled at the rest
Thousand restless hearts she beguiled

For when an ugly charmed a charmer
Love beheld the eyes of heart
Hath the beast not turned warmer
Lore of beauty and the beast would fall apart

For the perceptions differ
Of thee and me
I may defy, thou may prefer
The essence of beauty

In your memory

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.)

Dreamland

There is a place where oft I travel,
And in child dreams do things of yore.
Like running barefoot on the gravel,
Or riding my stick-horse to the store.

Concerning this place of which I dream,
I'm left to meditate on, without clue.
Why my dreams have a childhood theme,
Unless once more I'm yearning to do?

Cancer

I can't believe I haven't posted this one. I wrote it last year, can't remember the exact date. Anyhow it's a song. ---------------- You know this world is cancer Without these prayers being answered It's been too long a ponder We wonder We wander Far from here Lost in fear Can you see them fall? You lose one you lose them all She's seen the cruel hearts of stone She's seen the cancer we've become So lost in worry we just fall down Underground we burn Till the last one's sure Can you see me fall? You lose one you lose them all Cut me out of this body! Cut me out of everybody! Grind me into little pieces! Tell them that I'm the reason- You know this world is cancer Without these prayers being answered It's been too long a ponder We wonder We wander Far from here Lost in fear Can you see me fall? You lose one you lose them all You lose one you lose. . . Them all

To Dream A Dream

To Dream A Dream

To dream the impossible dream
To live and be forever full-filled
To live, laugh, smile it would seem
Your heart will be forever instilled

To dream and forever be mine
Your heart we’ll be forever intertwined
To live and be forever full-filled
Keep smiling, laughing and living
And we’ll be forever singing

To dream the impossible dream
To live and be forever full-filled
To live, laugh, smile it would seem
Your heart will be forever instilled

And dream your dream of dreams
Will last forever it would seem
We’ll laugh and would forever be fine
For we’ll be drinking a glass of fine wine

To dream the impossible dream
To live and forever be full-filled
To live, laugh, smile it would seem
Your heart will be forever instilled
Your heart will be forever instilled
Your heart will be forever instilled.

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.

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.

A New World

I dream to see the day
when I could look out my window
to watch a new world emerging.

                     II
I dream to see a streak of light
descending from the clouds
to herald the birth of a morning.

                    ***
There’s only one road to peace
and it begins right inside of you and me;
it’s never too late and hey, let’s not wait,
it’s our destiny, it’s our fate.

                     III
I dream to see the day
when you and I could be as one
and every man is everyone’s neighbor.

                     IV
I dream to see a white dove winging
towards the blue wide skies
when the guns of doom will pound no more.

                     ***

As The Road

Outside the group that's outside the box
seeing inside the outside Im shocked
how you shape our fate as it knocks
on imaginations and what they concoct

My dream craves standards, but they take work
here efforts actualize ideals
tough labors haunt tall morals that lurk
conscience yielding obsession's appeals

Then I want to want like I need
I want to make like I eat
and overgrow like a weed
lead the way as the street

Chance is the string in front of the cat
you wiggle it and they start to hunt
powerless to hope, now a door mat
contours the form of fantasy's brunt

My dream yearns for spirit's fruition
This needs my best and the will to provide
Then integrity tugs ambition
then my drive to succeed won't subside

And I want to want like I need
I want to make like I eat
and over grow like a weed
lead the way as the street

Outside the outside wants inside the inside
thirst and honor feeds the ride
swallow and beg with my mouth open wide
for virtue to lead the way of the guide

Mockingbird

Written March 26, 2013


Hey you way up there in the tree
Hiding away for none to see
No I don't know why you refuse to be
Why can't you just see what I've seen
Hey little mockingbird don't mock me
It's these mystical one-eyed dreams
Keeping me from tossing myself
Twenty thousand underneath the sea

I am what I am
I've gone too far to rescind
These wonderful twisted dreams
Where we're skipping stones by the stream
I know what I feel
Now you're even more real
All I know is how to weep
With the birds lulling me fast asleep

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.

hello my friend, stranger walk by,
borrow a moment, spare me your lie,
through pen of the narrow and mist of an eye,
below absolute zero, someone will die;
sentence to rambler, apple hereby,
flute of the meadow, mandrake will cry,
in front of the riddler second might try,
get out of here mortal,
exit near by-e.

angry as he strike out his pen,
get out of here demon, get out of this den,
in thousands of years how long has it been,
when scriptures wear sandals;
on meadow you land, many bear seasons,
stakes shall bend, lantern still burning,
your letter is send.

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

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

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

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

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

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

So …

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

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

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

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

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.

SUNNY WEATHER DREAM lyrics for Halleluja contest

                                      SUNNY WEATHER DREAM

    There was a child --who had a dream,
     Peace gave his eyes a secret gleam, 
     But no one thought he had a chance to do much,
     And every day he went to school, his teachers were some awful fools
     But still he tried to keep it all together
     His heart beating:
     Sunny weather, sunny weather, 
      His heart beating :  sunny weather, sunny weather
====================================================
     The boy became a man one day
     The dream was safely tucked away
     Though no one thought he had a chance to do much
      Kept his nose clean-- to the ground, sure his life would turn around
     There must be Someone who holds it all together!
     In the distance:
     Sunny weather, sunny weather, 
     In the distance:
     Sunny weather, sunny weather
====================================================
     The world was heavy --time’s were rough
     And all alone life seems so tough
     Still no one thought he’d had a chance to do much
     But he stayed faithful to his song, Did more right than he did wrong
     tried to keep his life and loves together
     And he longed for :     Sunny weather, sunny weather,
     How he longed for:  Sunny weather, sunny weather
====================================================
    And then one day he fell apart
    His precious dream escaped his heart 
    Still no one thought he had a chance to do much
    But every day the world made war, the body count piled more and more
    He drifted off as helpless as a feather
    And his soul grabbed
    Sunny weather, sunny weather, 
    sunny weather, sunny weather
====================================================
    There was a dream that had a man
    Proclaiming peace in every land
    Though no one thought he had a chance to do much
    The ragged tune a little blurred but was a song that children heard
    Rejoiced that he had kept it all together
    Now the world sings
    Sunny weather, sunny weather, 
    Now the world sings:
    Sunny weather,sunny weather

Stand And Wait- A Song

This is where my heart is,
This is where it beats,
Singing a song  
Every moment we meet.

This is my life,
Where you're my star,
Glittering and shinning,
But always so far.

Out of my reach,
Making me cry,
Forever and ever,
Looking at the sky.

I can't go near you,
I just might burn.
Being hurt is something 
I wish I never did learn......

PRE-CHORUS
(But I know.....
That one day.....
It will show .......
And I'll be okay.....)

CHORUS 
(This is where my heart is
This is where it beats,
I know you have one,
Held back by the heat.

I've watched you rise,
I've watched you fall,
Don't you know 
I've seen it all.

I could be your plasma,
I could be your flame,
God only knows I'm the only one 
Who can recall your name.

I won't let you go,
You may only feel hate,
But as long as you're here,
I'll just stand and wait.....)

You met a girl,
she seemed so sweat,
Little did you know it was your heart,
That she liked to eat.

I watched your hurt,
I seen your pain,
The flames surround you
Like a lion's mane.

If only she could see,
The things I can,
She'd never ever,
Say you couldn't be her man.

I feel so bad,
But you have to learn,
if you let down the flames 
No one else could be burned.

PRE CHORUS

CHORUS

One day you'll let down all the flames,
So I can see you,
Cause baby you know,
I'm in love with you....

Oh, Cause

CHORUS X3

I'll just stand and wait....
Until you come,
I'll.... just stand and wait.

Erstwhile Thoughts

When worthwhile thoughts become elusive,
To a less mature time, in thought, I gander.
Time then, to me, didn't appear conclusive,
So I permit my psyche there to meander.

In thought I re-live my youth once more,
For in real time, life grants no provision.
For traveling back in time to days of yore,
To tracks once etched with fine precision.

But soon thoughts drift from this game.
My visual perception now in the present day.
Find opportunities remain exactly the same,
As before worn thoughts scurried me away.












Details | Lyric | |

Shooting Star

You are a shooting star.
You're light shines here from far.
A burning fire in the sky.
To dream, like a star, you fly.

To let the insults of the world pass you by.
Always keep your head held high.
As a dreamer you are strong.
To keep following the dream along.

Keep pushing forth with all your might.
Never give up your will to fight.
Find strength deep within your light.
Keep your fire burning bright.

Though there are people that doubt.
Follow your dreams, don't push them out.
Within yourself, believe in you.
When you follow your dream they will come true.

As a shooting star leaves a trail of dust.
In your dreams you must trust.
Let your dreams take you far.
For in everyone lives a shooting star.

Make the difference

As others smile u have frowned 
As others have cried u just broke down
u have no sorrow u have no pain are the lies we all tell today
As they scream
As they fight 
As they kick and hit
As they all hate 
u hide 
When all is lost when you see no hope 
All you see is the death or your fate
You have not yet discovered what you are destined here for 
but you have no desire at all to find out you my dear are in dought of your ability to scream and shout 
You have the will You have the power shout your thoughts from the highest of towers. You were put here to make a change how can you do that when you dont believe in fate when you have no desire you are able to use your pain use your sorrow and use your anger to make a difference yet you are becoming no different then what you now hate.

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 
Alone
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
Find 
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 
Alone
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
Find 
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 
Alone
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
Find 
The one

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.

DREAMER'S FANTASY

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)

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

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.

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".

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

Monsters and me

I create monsters  
Then  I wait  in ages  to hunt me

Monsters  in dreams as  I introduce
Become real  hi t  haunting to me as I  work

They  made  me pay the bill never  on time
Dreams and wishes  garble in  sparkly gluey  neon dark cloud


Than every thought  haunts  as I live by them
It is a kind of monsters hidden in cloudy day in darkest cloud

They have very special kinds a  I introduce from  my birth
One is so kind the other everything about  is greed 
Third one is mirror watching what you have done
Monsters hunts me and fight them in  my  each  day

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
But...
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..

Fading You

I stand here with the urge to cry,
"am I disposable?"
I stand here and I'm asking why,
"is it impossible?"
To dream of you as your fading away
Fading to a world with a pretty face
I stand here with the urge to cry,
"am I disposable?"

Endlessly searching with expressions blank
As pale as the moon
Forever wondering and falling through space
Trying to get to you
To dream of you as your fading away
Fading to a world with a pretty face
Endlessly searching with expressions blank
As pale as the moon

Controlling numb pains from the power within
Am I immortal?
Controlling my feelings so I cannot love
Yet I feel your sorrow
To dream of you as your fading away
Fading to a world with a pretty face
Controlling numb pains from the power within
Am I immortal?

Dead Winter: Repost

It's zero degrees in this desolate land,
Frostbite over freeze, I can barely stand.
I hear laughter and cries as I look left then right;
There is no one in sight on this dead winter night.

The darkness has fallen like a cascading avalanche;
The few trees I see are barren, with no leaf on any branch.
I heard footsteps behind me, yet I stand alone;
Would anyone find me, or am I on my own?

There is no phone, no gas station for miles around,
Just this one winding dirt road and snow upon the ground.
I cry out for help and there still is no answer; 
Can I make it out alive from this creepy nightmare?

So fear stricken I begin to run frantic;
I fall upon my face with frozen tears as I panic!
I just want to scream out loud and lift my voice in anguish;
Why me!? Why now!? I'm just ready to end this....

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.

ONE DEMO REMAINING

Wake up every morning, 
Knowing it will be the same;
Feel an endless longing, 
Inside a rage that can't be tamed.
Haunted in my thinking, 
I let my big chance pass;
And with it all believing, 
That my song would always last.

Invited to The Boot to hear a band, 
Saw a flicker of what I used to be;
A young man lost in his music, 
Yesterday that man was me.
I remember making melodies, 
The world was in my hands;
But it slipped through my fingers, 
I had to grow up and be a man.

Let my hopes just fly away,
All my dreams of entertaining;
Now I'd give any thing to know,
 There's still one dream remaining.

Sitting at this restaurant patio, 
The guitar's magic in his hands;
His voice is smooth and effortless, 
Oh how I wish I was that man.
The joy of being lost in the music, 
Alive, young at heart, and free;
The tapping feet and smiling faces, 
To see how good your song can be.

Let inhibition just fly away,
He lives the dream of entertaining;
Looks out at the admiring crowd,
Says there's one demo remaining.

Play your songs for all their worth, 
Never let them go;
The world is your audience, 
Give them your best show.
Don't let your chance pass you by, 
You can't stop believing;
Life is in the music, 
And love is in the feeling.

Let inhibition just fly away,
I took the one demo remaining;
My soul moved by the music,
Tonight my dream reclaiming!

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

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.

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

New Life

New place, New life
Livin' it up and havin a good time.
No more rules, No more excuses,
No more bull, and no more losin'.
It's time to start over now, New job, New friends,
Time to party it up until the end.
Gotta get it right, New place new life.
Let nothing hold you back, and get your life on track.
New place, New life
Livin' it up and havin a good time.
Live it up to the fullest,
Have a blast and enjoy it.
It comes and goes so fast, like a dream
So hard to believe that it's reality.
No more rules, No more excuses,
No more bull, and no more losin'.
It's time to start over now, New job, New friends,
Time to party it up until the end.
Life is short don't ya know?
Now its time to go with the flow.
Cuz it's a New place, New life
Livin' it up and havin a good time.

Homeless food

                                              In a cipher of poverty
                                        These rich words postpone hunger
                                   Feed a famine
                               While a sole dies
                           I examine its corpse lying there
                     While I am elevated with the glue that killed it
                History made my days ugly
            Touched my pen to wrestle anger
     This bread I inhale repairs my lungs as I get glued on with a smile that makes me meet my maker in person
  Legalize the glue so I can sniff the truth
    Legalize the glue so I can sniff the truth

MIRACLE MADE FOR TWO

You're a song that never ends
Before we finish we begin again
You're my music on this wild ride
With a velvet voice you can't hide

Never thought it could be like this
Your a soft touch, a total bliss
You ignite with your eternal smile
And hair that flows, a majestic Nile

Oh wow, think I've fallen in love
And I don't know what to do
Head over heels for you
My dreams are coming true
Oh my, like a gift from above
You're way beyond the blue
A rainbow with every hue
A miracle made for two

When I look into your eyes
Girl.. There's no more alibis
I can't hold my want for more
Yes I'm knocking on your door

You're making it hard to breathe
Tell me you'll never leave
Teach me all of your moves
School me in all your grooves

Oh wow, think I've fallen in love
And I don't know what to do
Head over heels for you
My dreams are coming true
Oh my, like a gift from above
You're way beyond the blue
A rainbow with every hue
A miracle made for two

Girl, we're a miracle made for two

Dream Liberty -- Butterfly Effect

Butterflies quietly fluttering In my soul Transforming my life Morphing into something so unreal So Different, silently beautiful So hidden and lost A fire dances on my pale iced face Lively prancing as each sheds more light The embers glow in your singed shadow Was this eternity meant to last forever? I couldn't believe that a simple flap of butterfly wings could cause such a storm, a storm in my mind The simplest things causing the greatest of pains Why cant I be one of them Forever and free I'll be with my dream of liberty Punishing the dead Can you never let anything go Is it all to hard to see That your bias takes you on a blinded delusion Where all they plunder is hate Terror is a virtue When becoming a king So cut off the strings of my life With your power And you will see the strength of the dream of Liberty I couldn't believe that a simple flap of butterfly wings could cause such a storm, a storm in my mind The simplest things causing the greatest of pains Why cant I be one of them Forever and free I'll be with my dream of liberty I couldn't believe that a simple flap of butterfly wings could cause such a storm, a storm in my mind The simplest things causing the greatest of pains Why cant I be one of them Forever and free I'll be with my dream of liberty

On and On

Though that day was dry
But still that mother long cry
Would not stop me from making a try.

I know how rigid the wall
I know how strong 's the mall
And that made me tall.

Though Whiskey held my lip 
And rolled me off to strip
But it wouldn't stop me from trip.

Though it 's at first painful
But now it 's the most beautiful
And before God, I will still be grateful.

I know she did it for fun
And not realise what it 'd turn
But before God, she don't have to run.

Though that day was dry
But still that mother long cry...

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.

You Hide, I Seek

As i dream this dream so blue,
Woodlands search for the scent of you,
As there legs get tired and there heads grow wired,
Not a height in forest can see through, 

In the plastered smear of a dark night,
My iris bleeds the unfair fight,
Although a sense gets bullied, pulling round on its pulley, 
With our touch we can pull through this dead light.

Theres racing violence in these rooms,
Carry me through each exit wound,
I will bleed for you lover, use my soul as you cover,
And my eyes so you'll find where our life leads,

Breaking bodies and boundaries to find you,
I climbed each wall for that afternoon,
When i looked into your eyes and i finally felt wise,
Because i saw you, completely.

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

Break all the mirrors

Break all the mirrors so we can’t see what we’ve become.
What happened to that sixties dream of a world built on love?
Survival made so difficult we couldn’t see it slip away.
Now it is on our children, the bill is theirs to pay.

I swear to God up above it doesn’t have to be this way.
Oh Lord it doesn’t have to be this way.

The flowers once so powerful…have all withered away
We sit here softly rocking, and don’t know what to say
The days they seem so endless with life’s boulders in our way
Our dreams they fall like teardrops and our feet seem stuck in clay

 I swear to God up above it doesn’t have to be this way.
Oh Lord it doesn’t have to be this way.

Why did we choose to settle, for a nightmare as our dream? 
Why did we choose to settle for mammon’s twisted scheme?
Once we danced at Woodstock united as one team
Once we understood to win, on each other we must lean

 I swear to God up above it doesn’t have to be this way.
Oh Lord it doesn’t have to be this way.

We should not have to look at yesterday to see how it should be
We should be able to wake each day knowing we are free
The cost so great while it grows so late and twilight makes its call
Softly chuckling at the structure while knowing it will fall

 I swear to God up above it doesn’t have to be this way.
Oh Lord it doesn’t have to be this way.

To the children we must apologize for we placed them in the stock
Then we frightened handed over the keys to their binding lock
Dashing madly in our search for satisfactions shining bauble
The weight so great the time so late as stumbling we do hobble

I swear to God up above it doesn’t have to be this way.
Oh Lord it doesn’t have to be this way.
 
Oh well, break all the mirrors so we can’t see what we’ve become.
What happened to that sixties dream of a world built on love?
Survival made so difficult we couldn’t see it slip away.
Now it is on our children, the bill comes due today

Myth and reality

Myth and reality

How everyone in the universe painted dragon:
India
China
Germany?
There was this dragon.
This is not a myth.

How the lovers dream about 
Kings and Queens,
The Palace,
The glass slipper
About Cinderella?
This is the reality.

I live in Jerusalem and the dream and 
The legend is  reality 
I am wearing a sandal on Cinderella, at
Street alley
I watch My kingdom
That your image
Engraved.

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.
Somehow.

Uncharted mind

Abysmal is the wildwood
The path astray
Observe the whispers
Echoes of footsteps
Wander the forsaken
Voyage the forgotten

Each step a memory
Every breath a death
All thoughts create

Untrodden the fathoms of aqueous 
Tenebrous are the depths
Sense the essence
Absorb its mystery
Submerge in unknown
Venture the secrets

Each step a memory
Every breath a death
All thoughts create

Obscure its vast infinity
Amplifying its esotery
Devour the philosophy 
Dominate the theory
Immerse in its wisdom
Journey beyond obstruction

Each step a memory
Every breath a death
All thoughts create

The élan vital

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

Dream

Feburary 27th 2012 i lost the most important person in my life. Helen

I was at a goodwill, when i prayed to her that i would find a metallica shirt. I was then looking through the shirts and found two metallica shirts. I got them both. i started wondering if it was her, if she answered my prayer. A few days later i had a dream. She was standing in the window yelling down at me telling me she bought me something and it was on her bed in a bag. i told her how much i missed her and i went to go see what it was. i open the bag on the bed and see the two metallica shirts i had bought at that goodwill. i now know that she answered my prayer.

Another dream i had.

I had often wondered if she considered me a grandchild.. because im not realted to her by blood. I had a dream it was at her funeral. i seen her sitting in a chair next to me. my sister and some of her grandchildren were carrying her casket to the hurse. My sister fell and dropped the casket and several of her family members were yelling at her. Helen the women who these dreams are about sat and said she loved all her grandchildren even if there not blood related.

I believe Helen answers my questions in my dreams.

Exist in Dreams

A dream that dances in waves, and mirrors all you do
So you dance, and hope that some day the song will come from you
This dream is all that exists, and all you’ve ever known
The song is picking up speed, so it’s follow or fail alone

A flame that flickers in sync with the shadows by your side
The rain puts out the light, and causes you to hide
This nightmare is all that exists, and all you’ve ever known
But this song still hasn’t stopped, and so you dance alone

You cherish sand on the banks of a path winding through a storm
This desert trail is all that you see; too blinding to look beyond
This path is all that exists, and the only way to go
Holding close the sand as you sing, just so you’re not alone

The sand is part of the storm that makes you close your eyes
But now the wind starts to slow, and the scenery makes you cry
This life is all that exists, and the only way to go
The sand falls through your hands, and you carry on alone

A love that blooms into being beneath the darkest skies
Is a life that will venture out despite the lonely nights
So scared, but so unafraid to find what you need to be
Despite the fear that prevails, and tells you what to see

The flames steady and still, and a shadow kneeling down
The rain cleansing your heart as all your fears drown
The sand creating a path, and shielding you from pain
And now, with the wind at your back, you remember why you came

To dream a light shining out for all the world to see
To be more than you think, and beyond all that will be
To create a desire to be the creators of our dreams
To become the mirror of self, and reflect our unity

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

Ballad of the Bouncing Self

At times I, like a butterfly,
May flit from bloom to bloom,
Or with my whimsy set sky-high
To outer space may zoom.
And yet, when all’s been said and done,
I follow what my fate has spun—
For some may strive and ne’er succeed,
While others simply do the deed.

A Muse impels me on a spree
Of whirling swirling craft
Where poems must not mean but be…
Until I’m going daft.
But words, albeit finely wrought,
Can only catch a passing thought—
For some may strive and ne’er succeed,
While others simply do the deed.

When my reality looks pale
I frolic in a theme
From vivid myth, folklore or tale, 
Where dreams are what they seem.
And there where’er I romp and roam
I always feel a welcome home—
For some may strive and ne’er succeed,
While others simply do the deed.

I’ve often fallen to the ground
And picked myself back up.
I’ve hungered for a loving touch
And sipped from passion’s cup.
My longings, cravings ruled my will;
Still never could I drink my fill—
For some may strive and ne’er succeed,
While others simply do the deed.

A life led wrong, though full of song,
Will cause us to regret,
When pondering the winters long,
Our faults we can’t forget.
And then we’re washed in bitter tears
For senseless youth and wasted years—
As some may strive and ne’er succeed,
While others simply do the deed.

I said I want to live before
I die, in villanelle,
To learn where lies true wisdom’s door
And shun the gates to hell.
Yes, wayward ways can still begin
To seek and find the Way within—
For some may strive and not succeed,
While others simply do the deed.

Old Friend

OLD FRIEND

Familiar friend, your simmering glow
I welcome you whole and heartedly know
When day is night and ebb is flow
I trust in you, our love will grow

When dawn is dusk, then sun is moon
Your welcome face, the dullness soon
Neither red nor blue, no rays of light
Just shades of gray my dreams tonight

No princess to rescue
No tales of lore
Just spiraling down
And spiraling more

No faces or places or loves I’ve known
I dream of nothing and nothing alone

Together we cry, forever we moan
The pain my companion, together we’ve grown
Morning looms my bliss shall end
I’ll miss my companion; I’ll miss my old friend

My victoria -No It's not supposed to be capitalized-

When I was a boy
I didn't do much just played with toys
and when I got older 
I started to grow a little bolder
but now that I'm here
sitting' on top without those fears
I have what I have got
something I wouldn't think I'd a get a shot at
My victoria
the only one for me
My victoria 
it's way to plan to see
and when I dream of seeing it
I just still can't believe
My victoria 
my victoria 
In my chair I can be
have my servants comfort me
yet I m still to wonder
what i'd be like living under
a way of life without
my victoria and doubt 
that anytime soon
i'd get the chance to tune
my victoria
the only one for me
my victoria 
it's way to plain to see
and when I dream of seeing it
I just still can't believe
my victoria 
my victoria

(Victory is mine to hold)
(Everything is mine- behold!)

My victory
The only one for me
My victory 
it's way to plain to see
and when I dream of being it
I just still can't believe
My victory

EYE Don't See -Part 4-

My heart is beating with upbeat delight 
You astound me…in every shape and form 
My spirit is dancing with unbreakable might
You surprise me…when you take my hand
And pull me outtah my jail-like dorm

And He dismisses me from my solitude…
My eyes are glistening with bliss… 
And I’m far from my demise… 
Only to find that there’s no need to feel helpless

Why do you spoil me rotten with your fatherly affection?

Just protect me from any harm 
Let me make my own decisions…
To see the results in the long run 

You prize me as if I’m cherished like your carefree child
You don’t understand – I’m TOO foolish and wild
I haven’t even reached to full maturity 
But how eye hope to see myself grow and be set free
From the world’s mayhem
Is there a solution to this problem?

And I’m left with no answer…
My eyes are eager to see…another bright day 
And the night is coming to haunt me… 
I find myself slowly disappearing from sight…
When will God give me a purpose to fight? 
When will He feed me His awesome might? 

Just support me…especially during my downfalls
Please answer my calls!

And I’m left to venture off into His path…

Eye can’t escape my terrible nightmares 
Consider my calls of acceptance…my grief weighs a ton
Let me pour forth my tears – 
Do me a favor and cast away my fears
Steer me away from disorder and confusion

Eye can see you’re making great progress
You’re heading towards a brighter, superb future…

My eyes 
No longer witness oblivion 
My eyes
Looks beyond the earthly pain…
bEyOnD the affliction 

I spot a rope in the distance. . . . . 

Push aside the waves…and let me
Grab it this instant!
God feeds me His love…and treats me
Like a newborn infant!

Eye see my Father with brand-new eyes  
I feel rare content
And I feel hardly any resentment

Eye 
cherish 
that 
REMARKABLE 
moment

Visions of the Night

Good dreams, sweet dreams
Visions filled with wonder—
Flowing gently,
While we deeply slumber;
They take us far away
While we take rest from the day,
So make sure you close your eyes
And close them tight;
So you can see the visions of the night.

Moonlight, soft light,
Glowing through the windows,
Shadows dancing 
Softly on their tiptoes—
They pass the night away
In a nocturnal ballet
While the stars shine in a blazing silver-white;
How beautiful, these visions of the night!

Should we long for the coming of the setting sun,
Simply because it heralds the day's end;
Is it wrong if we want the moon to rise—
Just so that, we can stop and close our eyes?

Owls hooting, counting off the minutes,
Crickets chirping, mini violinists;
They set music for the stage
As the world turns a new page
And the lonely moon observes from her great height;
She's watching all these visions of the night.

TAGORE

 

TAGORE ON 

I just happened reading Rabindranath Tagore’ s poem called “The Gardener.” 

The Gardener XL: An Unbelieving Smile

					“……the dark rim of your eyes.
						Then smile as archly as you like
						when I come again.”

I am a Wheel, my blood flows inward
Of its spokes.
I am a Star,
My blood dissolves
In its Middle.
The Middle is without Time.
Here is where I am born.
Here the Poet letting Go:
Pollen, Sac, Belly
To more giving
Yes—
The weeks go on
And I contemplate the Gardener
Basing on cumulative
Bending, drawing in
Giving Magnificence
Back to the Universe
Stranded between Reason and Awe.
Tagore brings the World
In as Word/song.
With  Black and white
His work became tight
As the freest gift
In specially the Light.

-Daniel de Cullá

FAME

If I could visualize the world in your eyes and feel what your heart speaks we would be able to teach reaching the many people who dream what we have obtained.

F.A.M.E.

The love of a FAMILY
The AMBITION to survive to have more positive insights to be able to believe in a future.

The MENTALITY to adapt to the changes that has and will take place, even if it means that we love or hate them.

Having the ability to EMOTIONALLY control our urges that destroy so many. Yet to be moved by love with the lack of violence.   Until necessary to enforce some type of love and happiness in the minds of many who don't believe anymore.  The type of love the children need and dream of in a world that’s force to hate when they are born to love.

To achieve greatness and be a positive leader among leaders who have false goals of becoming someone who could actually lead, so many have lost their views on what needs to be corrected and improved to become better people.   I’m often reminded by so many people of all their extreme lies told all in the vein of false fame.

EYE Don't See -Part 1-

My eyes
Pour forth feelings
That I’ve felt in the past
They make my heart ache…
Take it all away…
Oh my God…
They’re making me sink in dismay

When will they break away?
When will they give me a break?

And I’m left in my solitude…
Do you hear me weeping?
And I’m close to my demise…
Only to find myself disappear…
When will peace draw near?

Eye don’t see
A happy ending in this scene 

My eyes
Journeys into the unknown
Who knows what will happen…
They’re like hidden treasure…
They’re buried far below…

And I’m left in my solitude…
My eye’s weeping…
And I’m close to my demise…
Only to find myself disappear…
When will peace draw near? 

Oh my God…
They’re driving me insane
When will they see my reflection?
When will they heal the infection?

Eye don’t feel
Raindrops of hope and relief 
All I feel…is grief…
Eye sense no peace…

And I’m left in my solitude…
My eye’s sagging…from endless mourning  
And I’m close to my demise… 
Only to find myself disappear…
When will peace draw near?

Does He hear
My supplications?
Does He sense 
My fear?

My eyes
Conceals the tears that dare to spew out
I feel trapped and lost without a doubt…
They erase my delight…
They seek my hurt…
Oh my God…
They’re casting me away into the perilous sea

And I’m left in my solitude…
My eye’s weeping…
And I’m close to my demise…
Only to find myself disappear…
When will peace throw out my fear?

Eye don’t see
A ship in sight…to save me from my demise
My lifeless body...
Drifts away in the wild ocean...
Without a sound...
Without emotion...

Eye don’t see
A rope to hold on to…
My hope for peace
Has drowned…

EYE Don't See -Part 2-

My eyes
Refuse to see tragedy
My eyes
Marinate in dread…unable to embrace ecstasy 

And I’m left in my solitude…
My eye’s sagging…from endless mourning  
And I’m close to my demise… 
Only to find myself disappear…
When will peace draw near?

You don’t see 
What damage you’ve done
Just let me be
Leave me alone…hand me a gun

I yearn for unspoiled glory
To make me feel perfect once more
I yearn for flawless serenity
To make me feel no regret…don’t ignore
My calls…don’t hang up on me

You don’t see 
What damage you’ve done
Just hear my plea
Listen to my excruciating cries…
Listen to the truth, not the malicious lies  
Our journey has just begun   

And I’m left in my solitude…
Do you hear me weeping?
And I’m close to my demise…
Only to find myself disappear…
When will peace draw near?

Eye can’t handle the stress
Let me release my horrendous distress
Eye can see you making that same mistake
At least MY life isn’t at stake

And I’m left in my solitude…
My eye’s weeping…do You feel my lament
And I’m close to my demise…
Only to find myself disappear…Stepped on like cement
I’m aching with discontent… I abhor this torment    
When will peace scrub off my fear?

I can’t believe my eyes
Your guiltiness flows into me…
I can’t believe I fell for your lies
Your heartless action rape my mind…you don’t see
What my EYES see…

You’ll never see 
How much pressure you put me under
Unchain me from this chamber
And watch me flee…

When will you be set free?

The Bliss of Boredom

I live in a world of my own,
My image, carved in stone,
No one else can touch what I see,
I dream alone, my home within me.

I play upon mountain tops, and jump off steep cliffs,
My world splashes colour, and constantly shifts,
I dream with eyes awake, in light,
And walk on starlit shores by night.

Imagination is my right, and the essence of my being,
And constantly my mind betrays the truth in what I’m seeing.

Body seated, face a stare,
You’d never know that I’m not there.

Alone we wake, and free we rest,
Join me and dream, about life’s best.

Don’t be afraid to fall from the sky,
If life’s a dream, you can never die.

So the next time you’re sitting, bored and alone,
Exist in bliss, for life, is your throne.

dreams of absolution

And every night, I lay awake
I find the conclusion
And every night, it just stays the same
I dream of absolution

In the night-light, do you see what you dream?
All your troubles; are they all what they seem?
Look around you, then you may realize
All the preachers, all with their lies
And I might know of our future
But then you still control the past
Only you know if you'll be together
Only you know if we shall last

(In the night-light)
 
In the night-light, do you still feel your pain?
For the valor you wait; it never came
If you were able, would you go change the past?
To mend a faux paux with one last chance
And I might know of our future
But then you still control the past
Only you know if you'll be together
Tonight


'Cause every night I will save your life
And every night I will be with you
'Cause every night I still lay awake
And I dream of an absolution

'Cause every night I will make it right
And every night I will come to you
But every night it just stays the same
In my dream of an absolution

 
(In the night-light)

 
In the night-light, do you see what you dream?
All your triumph and all you'll ever be
Look around you, then you may realize
Happiness lies trapped in misery
And who knows what of our future
We can all try to change the past
Only you know if you'll be together
Tonight

'Cause every night I will save your life
And every night I will be with you
'Cause every night I still lay awake
And I dream of an absolution

'Cause every night I will make it right
And every night I will come to you
But every night it just stays the same
In my dream of an absolution

 
And you'll see (And you'll see)
What you'll be (What you'll be)
And you'll see
All you can (All you can)
And every night (And every night)
And every night (And every night)
And every night (And every night)
I will dream (I will dream)
And you'll see (And you'll see)
That this is my dream (What you'll be)
And you'll see
Every night
I will always dream ('Cause every night)
And every night
And every night
I will dream (I will dream

I love you, my loneliness

The snowy mountaintops at the distance Long trodden ways criss-crossing my momentary dreams I perch upon the wings of poetry, my engrossing passion I reach there Edmund, Tenzing Norgay smiling at me Days after day I trudge along The paths of reality, hundred hands raised towards me Caressing me like thirsty leeches Stripping me of all soothing loneliness My loneliness set in a distressing trajectory I run and run to grab it, to hold it close to my bosom Yet it escapes my outstretched arms, an imp Grinning mischievously at my weary soul My dream sets me on a misty hike The forests ferny floor, the towering trees I leap and bound over peaks after peaks I clutch at soft underbellies of a cloudlet I stand on a white sunny snowcapped peak My wings feel a strong urge to soar and soar and soar My entity finally gives in to my Casanova solitude

The Key

Gather all the beauty you can see
and make a wonderful sparkling key
each time it turns will makes you smile

Your door will open up with style.
then  sweet and loving words will roll
the key will unlock your mind and soul

Sad old  thoughts will be on the run
Replaced by magical hours of fun
Now your life has turned around

With the inner peace that you have found
And everyone will rush to see
The holder of this beautiful key

They will learn that life can be something new 
Universal dreams are pure and true
So change each day from grey to blue

Shine the rainbow colors 
with the radiant heart that beats in you 
and find your key of life in YOU.

Passion in D-Major

Passion in D-Major


Feeling, the sensuous brush-
strokes on a canvas,

swirling,

to a symphonic crescendo,

of our shared heartbeats,

fading between the notes,

feeling your soft body entwined 
with mine,

your form bathed in my infinite 
kisses,

our orchestral desire rising,

conducting a shared fusing of 
passion,

... the music echoing ...

over the precipice,

on the brink of dazzling rainbow 
hues,

lost in the void,
of an eternal instant,

plunging through the depths of 
rhyme,

pleading,
forever pleading,

for a prolonged,

bouquet of shared time.

My Heart, Your Heart

My Heart, Your Heart

Many a time people misunderstand my heart
At times, these people truly frustrate me it hurts
My mind is always extremely determined
No one can steer me wrong, I have a strong mind
Man, at times I feel you slipping away
Can this heart of mine beg you to stay?
Will you feel like pouring water on my skin?
If I let you get closer will you take me within?
So let the rain glisten any time of year
Please help me not shed anymore tears
My lips are willing to feel yours upon
My softest and feeling of your lips sweet shon
Leaves me to wanting more and more
Please don't let your heart keep score
These feelings I have, I'm finding hard to keep in
The nearness of your beauty and wonder leaves me in sin

Many a time people misunderstand my heart
On this night, I'm feeling all your charms with love in part
My mind and body wants to feel even more
So never stop the rain as it pours for you and me pour, pour
On this star-lite night, I feel you slipping away
Can this heart of mine allow me to beg you to stay?
Can this heart of mine allow me to beg you to stay?
The nearness of your beauty and wonder leaves me in sin
These feelings I have, I'm finding hard to keep in
These feelings I have, I'm finding hard to keep in

Bridge

1 am in the morning 
No noises fill the air
Sitting on the bridge
He thinks
Remembering everything
He has ever done
The street lights 
Glowing from a distance
He stands up 
Climbs over the side
Of the bridge
Stands there 
He breathes in
His last memory
stuck in his head
He lifts one foot
And jumps
his body hits the river
Water drowning his lungs
What he felt at that moment
No one could understand
Sinking to the bottom of the river
The man tied a concrete block
To his back
His eyes wide open
The last thing he saw was water
The last memory he had
Was of his daughter
Living life like this is sad
But if you have no help
Who do you turn to?

I DONT HAVE THE WORDS

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!

Relics

 I don't mind if you climb inside 
 This stump I left behind 
 This lump of rot whose body parts 
 Broke free of dotted lines 

 Pluck a tooth, score a limb
 Scrawl a note or two 
 In this lair of desert air 
 There's room for both of you

 Odds and ends amidst the mud 
 Insinuate a face
 A thin disguise free of love
 Cheeks the wind erased

 An alibi for skin and hair 
 Where only dust resides 
 Crumbled like an arid lie 
 Free of human fear 

 So grab some stringy gristle 
 A brittle part will do 
 Or a compact mass of bone and grass
 With the mellow scent of dew 

 I don't mind if you grin or pout 
 If you're whole or if you're broken 
 Despite my rugged gutter mouth 
 My door is always open

Comfort Zone

A Feeling That Gets Me Feeling The Greatest 
Flipping Through Songs That Make me Feel like I'm Going To Make It
I CAn Sit Back, Chill & Relate With
The Sun Goes Up & The Moon Goes Down
Everyday I Know I have Not YEt Reached The Rooftops, But I'm Sure Not Touching The Ground
Have Much To Believe In, But Do I Believe it or not
My Mind Keep Racing While My Face is on Stuck
Then My Eyes Close Shut
Zoning In & Out of Conscious
Deep Thoughts on How I Was Born Into The Worlds Sickness
Will I Sit Back & Die from it or Live Past It
I'm Feeling It
The High I Get from  Life
That Grew Into My Life 
Feeling Like Everthing is Alright
If I Die Tonight My Soul Will Be Already Dancing Around The Stars Lights
I Had A Cruel Summer, But I'm Going to Enjoy My Chill Winter Nights
Reaching New Heights
The Comfort is Just Right
My Mind is in the Clouds
My Body has Slown Down
I Lay Gently Into a Dream & in My Dream I Never Wake Up From My Dream
Lost In It All
The Sky, The Galexy & Everything In-Between

Dream Lover's Arms

Dream Lover's Arms

Dream lover where are you, are you
I'm dreaming of your eyes so true
Every night I hope and pray
You'll come to me every night and day
I'm dreaming of your loving arms
Will you love me with all my charms
Dream lover, dream lover will you come again
I'll hold you in my loving arms within.

Will you come to me to the sweltering heat
Can you feel the heat of my heart beat
Some day we'll be laying under the softest sands
Of the Hawaiian Islands of heavenly lands
On this exotic night, I'm singing and praying
Of your sweet hands because I want and saying
I want to hold you in my loving arms
So we can lavish in each others charms.

Will you be my sweet dream lover so true
Then we'll never ever feel so lonesome blue
Because I want your love to follow me
To these island lands with passionate glee
Dream lover where are you, where are you
Because I want and need us to be oh so true
Because I want and need us to be oh so true,
Come with me to these islands of loving sands.

So we can lay on these inviting sands of land
I want to hold you in my loving arms
So we can lavish in each others charms
I want to hold you in my loving arms
So we can lavish in each others charms.

A Caged Bird

I am like a caged bird
who doesn't ever get tired

I will fly, float and run

I will sing when I roam;
Then I will come back home.

Esther Arbuthnott 1847 Her Ancient Photograph

          ESTHER ARBUTHNOT--1847 From Her Ancient Photograph
While the rain is falling gently on the roof it makes the sound,
of a time that's long forgotten, though it seems to hang around,
I can hear you breathing lightly from an Irish dream I've known,
it has come to Pennsylvania where you've found me here alone.

All the way from County Down, you were a dream I had to find,
though so long you were forgotten, you were always on my mind.
In your photograph your eyes are reaching out, perhaps for me,
I can feel you when I see you, but I never really see.

In your Book of Shadows, reading, is another person's sin,
but you open it to anyone who's wanting to come in.
There's a candle always burning in my window late at night,
and I'd love you in a moment, but that wouldn't make it right.

Can you hear the raindrops falling? County Down's so far away,
or perhaps it's just forgotten, like a dreary Irish day,
I can feel it when you're smiling, in the Heaven of your eyes,
love is gone and you've been dying, and it's then I realize,

you have found it all in Heaven, and it's such a part of you,
all the sad you had been living in this life will have to do.
it's an Irish kind of feeling, to be dying when you're dead,
and a lot of Irish whiskey only lightens up your head.

Serene Shores

-3/7/14 and 5/2/14-
The waves of the sea and the screeching of the seagulls 
Mix together like coffee and cream
I feel like I’m livin’ a dream
I walk barefoot on the warm, warm sand
I don’t really understand
Why you lay a hand on me…
Is it because I’m as mournful as the sea
Or is it because I’m the waves that swivel and dive down in ecstasy?
I don’t quite understand
The reason I feel the city’s pressure and hardness
They are cemented in the abyss

Serene Shores…
Sails in silhouetted slumber
Serene Shores…
Falls into flamboyant floors
Serene Shores 
Guides me gently, giving me grand advice – 
“DREAM ON, DEAR CHILD!”

The sound of honking is heard unexpectedly… the sound emitting out of the car
It was so uncalled for! It was going way too far!
I feel like drifting away in a deep sleep, carelessly hitting the seafloor…but I’m wide awake instead
I would like to lie lifelessly and tranquilly…I ascend from the water’s surface in disappointment – where’s my head?
I can’t completely comprehend
Why I am more in tune with nature – it could mend
A shattered soul…
A torn, forlorn heart…
Like my own

Serene Shores…
Sails in silhouetted slumber
Serene Shores…
Flaps its fantastic wings, favoring the light of freedom!
Sadistic Shores 
Pushes me forwardly persistently, poking at me pessimistically– 
“WAKE UP TO REALITY, YOU MORON!”

I ponder about the future and its many mysteries
There are clues in the surface of the ocean
I’m too busy trying to pick them up as I go…I wonder about the meaning of the past memories
I squander my time, getting caught up in bittersweet emotion

Just Smile

Just Smile
Written by D.W.Breidenthal

Just smile 
For a while...you have a # to dial
I'll clear out your pile...I'll fly with you above the cemented tile
Unto the bright blue sky...

Everything's gonna be just fine
You have a special place in this heart of mine
Just smile 
Just keeping trying x3
With all your remaining might
I'll help you discover God's light 
In no time, we'll get through the callous night
Just smile
Everything's gonna be alright 
Just smile
Paste a smile on your once frowning face
And have a positive, healthy mindset, oh buddy
Just smile,
No need for weeping...
no more sorrow...wait for tomorrow
And we'll receive perpetual delight
In no time, we'll get through the callous night
Just smile one more time (last time)
It's not crime
To smile just this time 
Just smile once more
Before you shut the front door
Just smile 
Embrace a positive mindset 
Just smile
And I'll get you out of the net
And pay up all your debt

Just smile once more
There's more hope in store, I'm pretty sure...I'm absolutely sure...I'm positively sure of it...

in no time, we'll be set free from captivity 
My feet are soaking wet
But they'll dry out I bet
So don't be upset
Just smile
And forget the regret
Of rising debt 

Just smile
And I'll disentangle you out of the lament net
And pay up all your debt

Port of Call

Port of Call


Barefoot on a talcum beach,

alone, not lonely,

with the breath of the ocean a caressing balm,
soothing pained memories away,
to the swaying of a solitary palm.


Barefoot on a talcum beach,

alone, not lonely,

feeling the brushing away of all past turmoil,
on a quest for solace, ever so hard to find,
yet comforted by the crashing of the waves,
as the tide cleanses all pain,
and leaves despair far, far behind.


Barefoot on a talcum beach,

alone, not lonely,

drenched in a sea-breeze of mist,
that hushes the ache of bygone moons,
tasting the salty tang on my lips,
as the burnished sun,
over the distant horizon,
swoons,

and dips.


Barefoot on a talcum beach,

alone, not lonely,

searching, ever searching,
for a slice of solitude,
as memory bids a final adieu,
reaching under the sea so vast,
and seeking comfort in the depths,
while embracing,
the tomorrows to come,
wishing that they be true.


Barefoot on a talcum beach,

alone, not lonely,

seeing my truths drown,
as they slip beneath the turquoise waters,

feeling my heart ablaze,
with a passion that rarely falters.


Barefoot on a talcum beach,

alone, not lonely,

yet knowing that I am home at long last,
wishing the waves would wash away,
the defences that once stood,
like an impregnable wall.


Barefoot on a talcum beach,

alone, not lonely,

I have found, at long last,

my final port of call.

Hoping to Dream

One's in her lifetime
Wanted to dream bigger
But only in the sweetest manner
That will instill deep sense of happiness
She could carry everywhere she goes
Hence, her dream choice was splendid
Picking to be the richest ocean
Dominating powerful men and women
With light that shines day and night
Nations drawn together by her brightness
In complete peaceful scene
Where everyday is happy moment
For everyone who appreciate beauty...
... Knowing very well
That could only be a dream...
... Hoping it will change her life
Inspire her positively
To rise up and join the team
Which the goal is to reach the sky
And tell the sun their stories
May be who knows
The sun would plead their case
Among other heavenly bodies
For there is too much going on
That is destroying the world
Pushing further the poor and the powerless
To the forgotten world

I Had a Dream

                         I had a dream. Oh I had a dream.
                         I sat in a chair in despair thinking
                       of the love and memory of my mother.
     In my dream I built a stairway to heaven with tears to hug her.
              Halfway with out a sound or word in the silent skies
                              an angel appeared upon me.
                        It was a precious and beautiful site.
Oh! I said could you for me ask God to cross a rose and lilac together
to create a bush with large clusters of white, purple, and pink flowers
                             and the fragrance of memory
   And give it long green stems so it can stand free and gracefully.
        Also ask him to it a name, a special name ‘ Kollock ‘
          and let it represent never forgotten love and memories.
                       In my dream God did this for me,
                     and gave it to my mother as a gift from me

Just Dream

there's a dream inside
to possible the impossibility
to make sense a non sense
to believe the unbelievable
i think that what makes a faith is

there's a dream inside
to bliss the unhappiness
to let go a depression
to release frighten
i think that what makes a dream alive

it's harder to breathe
when you keep on waiting on your dream
but it's easier to live
when you believe in your dream

dare to be different
dare to be the unusual
dare to believe the unbelievable
i think that's what makes your dream alive

when your days are weary...just dream
when your nights are cold...just dream
when your heart's breaking...just dream
because life is part of a dream

I Had A Dream About You

I had a dream about you
In the middle of the night
I’m not sure what had put you on my mind
We had never been together
Like we were in that dream
And I hadn’t heard from you in such a long, long time

I had a dream about you
In the middle of the night
I’m not even sure exactly where we were
It was a dream full of
Sexual delights
As if remembering things that never did occur

I wonder if it’s possible
Wherever you are
That you too, were dreaming of me
And I know this thought
Is awfully bazaar
But I wonder if it was sexually

I had a dream about you
In the middle of the night
It really was a wonderful dream
I am hoping with all of my
Heart and my might
That it becomes a reoccurring theme

LESSONS


As you journey under the sun;
Differing people you meet.
There are those who walk into your life,
And reveal the beauty engulfing the fruits of life.
There are those who share leaps of their dreams,
Encouraging you not to dream, but wake yours.
Those through their perseverance to up their lives,
Show that diligence really pays.
You are bound to meet others,
Whose lives revolve around service-
Their one goal- to make a difference in others’ lives
And perhaps their loyalty to change, however tiny,
Shows, everyone has a role of service in the life’s script.
Through the mockery and criticism of some,
A stronger character within you might evolve.
The tribulations of some-
How the try to keep the light in their eyes from withering,
Gives you the courage to hold on to the ropes of life.
Those, whose faces are wrinkled with uncertainties,
Of shadowy days, forthcoming,
Show you, it matters not – how small, how big;
It’s worth returning thanks for.
Each meeting, a new verse in our lives.
A foundation to strong friendships,
Even eternal vows.
Each meeting has a path to different perceptions of life’s anticlines and synclines.
A class, this world is;
Our successes, our lowest points-
Our experiences - lessons to a glimpse of wisdom

GOD'S PRESENCE PRESENT

GOD'S PRESENCE PRESENT

everything is possible
opening horizons inexhaustible
beyond risks irresistible
only by God's grace invincible

power and prestige in hierarchy
is that your heaven's key?
sure, it will never be
as good tidings you must flee

travelling light in life
motivated even as trials strife
sharp cut by a knife
oozing sweat and blood on high

do not stop
do not stop...
never give up
never give up...

look around...
stand up, see abound
hope echoing in sound
pray; do kneel down

God never deaf to heart's pound .

Stars

Written to:
Letter from Yokosuka by Nujabes (R.I.P.)

chord strikes in the middle of the night, lift me to stars falling
cuz no matter how close, i'm still far from calling
constellations from hibernation, i'm impatient
so i hasten to my destination
but you cant rush perfection as they say
and i learned that from my pop's lessons back in the day
he said "mayday was an excuse for you to drop;
but in the hay day, we all played to reach the top"
i can't stop, and won't with an audience behind me
like the Wise exclaim, "among common men you'll find me"
so if you want your wish, quit looking to stars
plant your feet, your dream is where you are

if you want your wish, quit looking to stars
plant your feet, your dream is where you are

teachers said reach for the zenith, but not seeing
what's in front of me is an image i couldn't sleep with
i guess i'd just miss it
i wanna capture the breath of existence no matter the distance
to see dreams cascade blue among the streams
through crystal clear currents that lead you to me
and a reflection in the pool says, "just be"
and an untamed landscape says, "trust me"
and we scan in awe, saying "it must be"
and we search as one, saying "above me."

why do i try to fight the spirit in me
high lights like stars live atop this city
why do i try to fight the feelings in me
high lights like stars live atop this city

and a reflection in the pool says, "just be"
and an untamed landscape says, "trust me"
and we scan in awe, saying "it must be"
and we search as one, saying "i love thee."

For Bob Dylan

Ramblin' Bob Dylan Blues
(For Bob Dylan)



Why does the sun dry up so many scattered tears

slipping down the coarse cheek of a million hushed fears

where no one is scalded though the searing fog clears

while prayers are mutely spoken even as the end nears

We shatter and scrape on demented knees

Blindly begging for mercy as it silently flees

Searching listlessly for salvation drowned in the breeze

That spits at the soft rose suffocated by a wheeze


I know now what I need never have known

Of hope that was trampled before it had flown

Into a wasted sky filled with hate that could drown

The giggling of the crowd and the crying of the clown


A hope so fragile that its wings were of brittle glass

Ripping the veneer off the sewers of class

Twisting the fabric of the weighed and costed mass

Who numbly waited hoping that it too may pass


For when shards of that hope in all hearts scurries away

To a darkness where crowded night is emptied off the heaving tray

'Tis then when sewn eyes shall behold that doleful day

When all shall tear at each other while on demented knees we still shall pray


For a lifting of the veil of that wilful deceit

That's wrapped up in a flag swollen with conceit

While the limbs splinter in the claw of a winner's defeat

Yet still the drums roll for the ill-fated souls chose never to retreat


From that drenched battle-ground where blood flows through a sieve

And love's lost song plaintively begs for a reprieve

From eternal loss which into raw emotion does cleave

Only to slip through the fingers and like grains of sand, leave.

UNFORTUNATE DOVE

    UNFORTUNATE DOVE
Once more it's morning and I greet the dawn,
waking to feelings I've known,
breathing the fragrance that's lingering on
throughout a lifetime alone;

splinters of sunshine are drifting through blinds,
revealing dust I breathe in,
dancing through flashes, and somehow reminds
of things that never have been;

I hear a song and it's what I've dreamed of,
outside my window they mourn,
I'd face the morning, but I need a shove,
for this poor heart badly torn;

unfortunate dove, why is it you sing,
outside my window each day?
It's a reminder of what life won't bring,
mourning dove, don't fly away;

once more it's morning and I hear the dove
all of my life is a sin,
it's just the way of unfortunate love,
but I still dream now and then.

Compensation

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

A Million Miles away

I wish on a rainbow Is all I can do? Through these lonely Hours of my day Hoping my wish will come true When will our eyes meet? And when can I hold you? I dream of you a thousand times Wishing that you’ll be mine I want to hold you in my dreams Make me believe this is true Yes, I know, It’s impossible to do And you’re so far, like A million miles away I write your name on a wind That I always used to do You are the color of love The star, the sun, the moon I will keep this fantasy Because in my one and only imagination You’re a dream that may never become true A million miles away from me Wish that you ‘d be here So as to hear the sweet melodies Like voices of sweet angels That echo in silence of obscure nights Even the stars whisper in a mellow tune And the world singing of the love I know But, still I don’t know how To grab a chance to be with you Cause you’re so far A million miles away from me

Requiem For the Absolute

Take the sun away, and find me in a new day
The laws of this land are so hard to obey
You've showed me the way where we must all g
oTaken from me this beautiful sanctuary
Required till this day was your frozen soul
 
Blessed art thee for you have conquered 
So gently you unwrapped my hopes and dreams
Lost and numb my heart beckons for the day
 
Relinquish these hands searching for my soul
Find a way to make me through this day
Requiem for the absolute- a prayer that cannot wait
Requiem for the absolute-I'll wait till the hymns be said
Requiem for the absolute- the dream that will not end
 
Barriers that create I create-- her suffering the cause of pain
While you sang to me about the dead star so innocently
So I came to thee while your eyes were glistening ever so sweetly
Inspired by thee I can't wait to see the day (the day)
when I have got you in my grave 
 
Relinquish these hands searching for my soul
Find a way to make me through this day
Requiem for the absolute- a prayer that cannot wait
Requiem for the absolute-I'll wait till the hymns be said
Requiem for the absolute- the dream that will not end
 
Relinquish these hands searching for my soul
Find a way to make me through this day
Requiem for the absolute- a prayer that cannot wait
Requiem for the absolute-I'll wait till the hymns be said
Requiem for the absolute- the dream that will not end

Sleep now

Sleep now,
when the house stills dark,
lay your head on your pillow,
close your eyes to all sorrow:
meet with joy playing in a park.
A dream shall kiss your face 
and tie your hair with a white lace.
 
Sleep now, 
When the morning star is hidden
timid like a vestal maiden, 
cross your arms over your chest,
journey to the secluded west .
A dream will take you to a land 
where beauty is the last command. 
 
Sleep now, 
With a beam, with no fears,
with fancy, with no tears.
All you need is to find and take
the dream’s heart and awake.
Leave behind every regret
for a bliss you already forget.. 
 
Sleep, sleep now…

I wanna shine not complete

I wanna shine.
I wanna be famous.
I wanna write a lyrical virus,
with words forever contagious.

I've gotta sound so ageless. 
Fans wanna shout out these lines,
start becoming more shameless.

Ink stained skin and starry eyed.
She's got my nerves
with her topsy turned tight curves.

Craving a sunset cinematic.
I'm jamming out to Queen,
shes into the lesser dramatic,
force fed beating semi automatic.

I wanna shine.
I wanna be famous.
I wanna write a lyrical virus,
with words forever contagious.


I wanna shine.
I wanna be famous.
I wanna write a lyrical virus,
with words forever contagious.

Friends asking what she said 
to turn my insides out.

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

The Mamas and the Papas

The Mamas and the Papas

MONDAY, MONDAY what a glorious day
And I feel a poem coming your way.
It’s DEDICATED TO THE ONE I LOVE
Do you know who I’m thinking of? 
Well, I SAW HER AGAIN LAST NIGHT;
A CALIFORNIA DREAMING sight.
We were DANCING IN THE STREET
CREEQUE ALLEY to be complete
She said WHEN I CALL YOUR NAME
I know I must take the blame
You can GO WHERE YOU WANNA GO
But your WORDS OF LOVE still show
You can DREAM A LITTLE DREAM OF ME
But your heart will never be free

On Any Given Evening

Corridors with wall sized windows are always places of rummage
Where copper candlesticks glisten and
Wood is polished by dirt particles from strenuous journeys.

Everything emits faint smells of 
Brandy and vermouth -
the sweat of great silver haired storytellers.

Glasses flood downwards 
staining tabletops and armchair sides:
Musings of grey, wrinkled Gods pondering over
50 year vendettas and century long betrayals. 

Hardwood floors creak and crack with the footsteps of ghosts:
Generals, grandmothers, and cousins in love.

Luminous forms of dust reveal nothing and everything,
Cycling unto itself over and over again.

These Salty Waves Pt 1

What am I supposed to think? What am I supposed to say? All these lies you bottled up come sweeping, crashing with the tides. My footing's gone, the ocean real, but how am I supposed to feel? And here I am, a drowning mess, a loveless lie, I do protest. And here I am a drowning mess. So all those things you said to me? Where they just lies out of pity? So all those things you said to me? Or am I lost in salty waves? Yes I know my future's grave. Or am I lost in salty waves?And now the panic in my head, when I should be tucked up in your bed, reels and reels right here instead.I'm going down, a sinking ship, funny what name drips off my lips. It is not God, or Angles plenty, or even that I'm just damn ready To let go of the hell and the lies. I'm wishing for your gentle eyes. Or at least the way they always seemed, but perhaps that's just this salty dream. I have no clue what I'm to do! A drowning hopeless mess, for you-- think it's cute, and oh so funny, but here's the bitter truth now honey. I'm going down. There is no help. I can't be saved by God himself. I put my life, my whole world of trust, and you've thrown it away for lust. Well what the hell's a girl to do? I'm just so entranced by you!

Dreams Come True

Somewhere birds are singing
And clouds are rolling by
I'm here dreaming without you
And I wonder why
Remember when life was so easy
When you dreamed too
That times come and gone
And I still think of you
You once told me that
Dreams really do come true
I still believe that
But do you?
We used to dream together
Under the moon and sky
But now all we dream about
Is how we always cry
About what we talk about
About what we say
How did we get here?
I don't want to stay
Come back, you don't have to go
I'll set things straight
I think we can make it
If it's not too late
We can dream of love and 
The song birds and the sky
We can fix this
This isn't goodbye
Somewhere birds are singing
And clouds are rolling by
Now I'm sitting here dreaming with you
Underneath the sky
No more goodbyes

Totohanang Panaginip

Magkasama nating tinupad ang ating mga panaginip...
panaginip na makamtan ang tunay na pag-ibig.
ikaw at ako, magkahawak-kamay, masayang humabi
mga pangarap na sana'y ating pinagsasaluhan sa araw at gabi.

humabi tayo ng panaginip
nakiisa sa masidhi nating pag-ibig
nagpatangay sa daloy ng pagniniig
alon ng pangarap naging totohanang panaginip! 

hindi lang miminsan tayo ay namasyal
dinala mo ako sa lugar na kay banal
humarap tayo sa Diyos ng marangal
ipinagpasalamat ang pag-iibigang hangal! 

hangal...bakit hindi? 

ikaw at ako nasa dulo ng magkabilang mundo, 
nagmahalan, harang ay pilit iginupo
panandaliang pagsasama ninamnam ng husto
isinantabi ang mali, nanaig sigaw ng puso! 

kung TAYO ay isang magandang panaginip
hiling ko kay Bathala huwag na ako'ng gisingin sa pagkakaidlip
sapagkat kapag ikaw at ako ay magkapiling
sa totohanang panaginip kapwa'y wala nang mahihiling! 

ah...lalagi ka'ng panaginip
na kailanma'y di maaalis sa aking isip!

Dreaming In My Reality

Breathing so hard
Mind racing fast
Where the hell am I?
That's all I can ask
Unfamiliar faces
Way too familiar pain
Same ass picture
In an unfamiliar frame
My vision is blurry
But, Temporarily becomes clear 
No matter the clarity
Im still drowning in fear
Lack of understanding
Searching for a clue
Wait, this is a dream
So what should I do
I control this scene
That's at least thats what i thought
I pushed and I shoved
I yelled as I fought
He's trying to keep me
He wont let me escape
My eyes wont open
Its as if they were sealed with tape
I feel like I'm in a episode of a twisted "Criminal Minds"
I see whats happening
At the the same time I'm still blind
I find myself somewhere different every single time
O lord please wake me up 
Now your seriously playing with my mind.
Now they are laughing at me as if this dream was all real
Whats this misleading concept
Whats the freakin deal?
Sweat now soaking my pillow
My eyes somehow unlatched
Looking around in a dark room
Felt like I was just in a crash
I must get up and walk this dream away
It felt so real as if my reality contained this dismay
Cold water against my skin and a prayer on the side
That's only thing that would rid my dangerous illusions
No longer did i want to fight.
Why these reoccurring dreams?
What is my reality trying to say?
Until i figure out this puzzle 
All I can do is pray

Kioshi Love <3

The Final Star isn't Born

(The final star isn't born!)  
    There is a star shining in the skies above you.
    There's a hell that likes to sink inside you,
    and there’s a ambition that stands beside you,
    and a dream that likes to catch you.

    Within these dark eyes,
    is a drop of our belief.
    As you fly in these blue skies.
    you’ll soon be up there in relief.

    With the world in your hands.
    Take a chance and take a stand.
    Tell the world another great story
    and with your stories in hand.

    Take the controls, take command
    and you are the star with the best glory.
    There’s been a mirror held to my face.
    Your face is what I see in place.

    I want to see it again and again.
    You are the dream of the girls,
    come and take us just for a twirl.
    We just like to know how’s it been.

    Your are the star in the sky.
    We will come to help you fly.
    lets take on this dream together,
    no matter whats going on with the weather.

(The final star isn't born!)

Packin In My Dreams

45 years behind me
I’m startin', reachin’ for the dream
I left my front porch crying
Only tears of fear
Then wiped my face
To keep it crystal clear

Your too old
You’ll unfold
They’ll laugh at your attempt
Get back in the house!
Cook a meal !!
Don’t continue.
Check the menu.
The kids are needin’ ya now!
Leave your dreams.
Give it up.
Hubby’s havin’ a cow.

I had my dream evaluated
Measured, tested, and weighed
All the experts told me
I really should have stayed…
home on another cookin’ course!
Well I’m not a cook or waiter
So instead of changing all my dreams
I traded in ‘the evaluator’
“neeeeeeeeeeeeeext!” that's my theme!

Your to old
So I’ve been told
Yep they laughed at my every attempt
Get back in the house
Don’t continue
Give it up
Pack it in
There’s nothing for ya here
There’s no chance to win a grammy!
Just relax and have a beer.

My new dream evaluator looking up said “mama mia”
Rubbed his chin and promptly asked
“who gave you this idea??’
I gathered up my things
Tried not to take a swing
He blurted, “for goodness sakes!!”
I’m only asking…
I’m just saying …
Looks like this is it…
Think ya just caught your break

I was told I was too old
I was told to pack it in
I was told to not continue
I was told I’d never win
I was told to get in the kitchen
Good things can happen to those who clean!
Today I’m packin’ for seven
Yep I said “for seven”!
My whole family shares my dream

I traded-in my evaluator instead of packin’ in my dreams
I’m not packin’ in my dreams
I never did pack in my dream
neeeeeeeeeeeeeext was my new theme!

NEVER ENOUGH LOVE

Never enough love to fill me up as a clown
when mood remains low;
I'd love to spin around twice,
hold someone's hand and fall down
to touch the world below...
as light chases away those dark clouds!


Where are the happy thoughts
that build up inside...
when fancy strikes and explodes
to make way for the sunshine?
Where's that rainbow 
that promises tomorrow?


Never enough love to make me shout, spring up and suddenly soar
to forget troubling days
that make me awfully sad;
oh, I lay wishes on stars
and believe in roses without thorns,
in faces without frowns!
Oh, it would be a wonderful thing to sail on a ship to a distant shore! 


Will I watch the fading sunset and dream by myself?
I'll look far away to explore feelings of solitude...
who'll be there to take me to another altitude,
if there isn't enough love to satisfy this throbbing chest?



Never enough love to give to the truest heart
whose size is the depth of the bluest sea!
If one isn't generous, that person will be lonely and out of luck; 
keep on giving what you can to make everyone see
that love never says you can't win the trust of your darling...
to build up that lasting dream when reality is the surest thing!

the keeper's self

when no clouds touch the sky
tomorrow becomes
just another way to get by
we free birds dream the livr's lie
Forever you and I 
live the dreamr's cry

if you ask for the devil long enough
he will eventually join you 
so be warm, be joyful 
politely ask him to leave 

find comfort within the things you know
and appreciate the things you donot 
and do try not to be so distant
for when the winds sway 
the chill reminds me
just how dearly i miss you 

time will bring changes 
and age to weather 
and in the mist of adversity 
you will get to see 
the true size of you 
Like a mirror for the moment 
Tomorrow admires you 

"like a curse, i'll write you away"

I Had A Dream

                


                                          I had a dream. Oh, I had a dream,
                                          I sat in a chair of despair thinking
                                       Of the love and memory of my mother.
                  In my dream I built a stairway to heaven with tears to hug her.
                            Halfway, without a sound or word in the silent skies
                                             an angel appeared unto me.
                                          It was a precious and beautiful sight.

            "Oh!" I said, "could you ask God for me, to cross a rose and lilac together,
             to create a bush with large clusters of white, pink, and purple flowers,
                                                  with fragrance of memory,
                     and give it long green stems so it can stand free and gracefully?
                          Also, ask him to give it a name, a special name, 'Kollock ',
                             and let it represent never forgotten love and memories?"

                                             In my dream God did this for me, 
                                    and gave it to my mother as a gift from me.

                                                                    by

Goodbye

We're headin' out 
Our bags are packed
The dream is over and
The boxes are stacked
But I can't...forget...this place
I don't know how
How to let it go
I can't find a way
I can't go with the flow
All I know...is that I love...this place

The faces pass and memories fade
My whole life...turns to shade
All I know...is that I'll miss...this place

No more fun
Gotta buckle down
No more games
Gotta drop this crown
I hope I don't...forget...this place
Days in the sun and
Nights by the fire
I'll miss those times
With a burnin' desire
I'm gonna...miss...this place

The faces pass and memories fade
My whole life...turns to shade
All I know...is that I'll miss...this place

We're headin' out 
Our bags are packed
The dream is over and
The boxes are stacked
But I can't...forget...this place
I don't know how
How to let it go
I can't find a way
I can't go with the flow
All I know...is that I love...this place

The faces pass and memories fade
My whole life...turns to shade
All I know...is that I'll miss...this place

Sentiment

I tried to see what life would be like on the other side of the mirror
I knocked on the glass for days, but no one ever let me in
Cracking, finally, the reflecting world showed me the truth
That it's just like the one I’m in; it only makes you bleed in the end

I only close my eyes
To find something worth looking at
I can only hear your voice
When I’m screaming into the wall
I only think on you
When the cynical inspiration dissipates
And sometimes only the freezing cold
Is all that reminds me I can still feel

Living this perfect life, dream lover, dream house, dream happiness
Take for granted the gift, not accepting your needy independence
Lust, greed, emotional gluttony; everything you've ever wanted
It’s only thanks to me, I created the twist in your soul, I made you who you are

I only close my eyes
To find something worth looking at
I can only hear your voice
When I’m screaming into the wall
I only think on you
When the cynical inspiration dissipates
And sometimes only the freezing cold
Can remind you that you can still feel

Taken by the presence of an all too familiar enemy
This man staring from the corner; he never leaves, never leaves me
Gentle whispers of deception takes hold and only tightens
Painful sobriety renders me vulnerable and helpless
He only laughs as I pray to God to save me

I only close my eyes
To find something worth looking at
I can only hear your voice
When I’m screaming into the wall
I only think on you
When the cynical inspiration dissipates
And sometimes only the freezing cold
Can remind you that you can still feel

Stare into a face, frozen for eternity
Never aging, never moving, never leaving; its world merely fades to white
Longing to go back, wishing to be, nothing humors the hope
Not tears, prayers, nor blood can bring them back
Trapped behind wood and glass; imprisoned in this photograph

I only close my eyes
To find something worth looking at
I can only hear your voice
When I’m screaming into the wall
I only think on you
When the cynical inspiration dissipates
And sometimes only the freezing cold
Can tell me that I can still feel

Value

A smile in a thought of a "forever" like this.
A dream from a star's one wish.
A love of a life from a fairy tale one told
To a child with an imagination worth a whole pot of gold.

Can you really put a value to something like this?
Like that feeling you get from your last first kiss?
Or the dreams that come true from a shooting star's wish?
There's no value worth more than all this.

A song from a night from a heart's first glance.
A sway from a dress from a love's first dance.
A rose from a thorn from a child's freedom.
A ring from a night from a tear from one.

Can you really put a value to a moment like this?
To a second in time so carefree as this?
To a heartbeat caused by pure peace and bliss?
To a child's eye lit by a shooting star and a wish?

Could you tell me what it's worth?
Or could you tell me which came first?
Was it hope for a future unknown,
Or happiness from the love that's shown?
Was it a dream from a fairy tale,
Or optimism after every fail?
Because the child that I've never seen
Is one without a single dream.

So tell me,
Can you really put a value to this?
To a first kiss?
A child's wish?
Pure bliss?
To this?
To this moment looking into your eyes?
To a fairy tale defined
By you and I.

fantasy

It annoys me
Thinking
Crying
I hate you
I don't like that gift
Take it back
You know what he wants
But you don't know I i want
You spend all your money on him
And spend only ten bucks on me
I gave up on Christmas
Because Santa wasn't real
We look up to him like a god
And that I don't accept
I don't believe in religion
Or in creations of Disney
I do not believe that Santa will show up
I don't believe god will show up
All these stories told by mankind
Are fake.
That's the end of Christmas
How about we live in real life
Instead of living in a fantasy

My Dream

My dream is of a better world
Where rivers run free,
Where our waters are unpolluted 
By debris thrown in by humanity.
Where crime is not known and weapons rare,
My dream is of a world
That overflows with care.

My dream is that we love each other,
Not by the colour of our skin,
But by the goodness that lies within.

Why is there envy?
Why is there hate?
Why shoud you be executed just standig by your gate? 
Why mut there be famine?
Why must there be war?
We have repeatedly asked these questions before.

Parents lead and children follow,
That's not always the case as we already know.
My prayer is that one day all this will cease
Then we can envision worldwide peace.

Melancholy

"Another Drink!", I screamed.
A fifth down and a fifth to go. 
This burning water quenches a dark thirst only I know.
Comfortably numb I sit and seem. 

And in this dream within a dream I sit a watch
As colors dissolve and memories fade in a blackened blotch. 
With my brow hung low in a bastards gleam;
Comfortably numb I sit and seem. 

God, how quickly everything can fade away.
Oh God, how easily I fall into the gray.
I close my eyes and form a crooked smile, life's easier this way.
Comfortably numb I sit and stay.

If

If i were years younger, i would start anew
If i loved only one,  i'd love only you
If i could go back a child i'd not have
Heaven help me
If anger and pain weren't so strong
A broken heart i'd not have
If a dream could come true
I'd dream of peace and serenity within
If i could grow in a way of beauty
 A  beauty within it  would be
 If, something we all ask from time to time

Thoughts of Yourself

My love expressed through the lines written on my heart. 
It’s filled by pages
Unpublished books.  
With words Defined as poetic verses touching the hearts of any one who want to understand my own personal situations and issues that needs to cleared up.
Or shared nightmares and my thoughts….well they are my thoughts.
Some of our situations are so similar it’s scary and varies with the life we live and conditions we wish to change.
We have to realize when to just let go. 
I catch you paying attention
I just want you to listen, words from my heart clouds my mind.  We have no choice but to wait for time. 
I sit here and wish that my feelings were detachable simply because pain isn't something that I will ever get use to. 
Maybe you will.
Wasted tears that seem to be tattooed on my mind and heart leave un-answered questions to my past. Maybe she will understand how I’m feeling and what’s felt in my soul leaving written or spoken words I’m able to express.
This is just who I am. 
What you think and what I feel are different. I’m sure that change will happen for us. Improvements needed.
I’m too weak to fight the emotional barrier placed between us. 
An emotional hold that neither of us have control over. 
I’m falling
With my thoughts, I’m a midnight thinker.  
A late night process that have been tested past beyond my limits of any type of control.
I think I dreamt this before, somewhere in the back of my mind. 
Lost time, it does go by fast. 
The facts clear and blurred vision are the truth of an un seen knowledge until its to late to have the proper thoughts of yourself.

I'm getting loud now

I've grown so accustomed to this way I live. (I'm getting loud now)
When I see your face.
Taken me further than I've ever been.
(I'm so proud now)
Let me tell you all these things that, I,won't, soon forget.
(High as cloud now)
Clever words I say,I promise you,
there's, no regret.
(Are you ready yet)

Build me up,
you bring me down.
Like a sick twisted lullaby,

self harm

ive been quiet to long i need to be vocal
need a magic telescope i can see hope thru
while i remain drug free and teetotal
a blade is sumthin i need to be close to

self harmin since bein a teenager
ill never let my dreams fade
people stare at my scarres like there lookin at there favourite screensaver
put my heart in every lyric on each page

i know its as bad as my moms drinkin and brothers drug taking
but when you go home you have a hug watin
i never expected no one to luv me
sumtimes i wish sumone would hug me

they say home is where the heart is
alone is where the dark is
if i had a better childhood would i be able to trust more openly
would i speak my mind without first puttin it in a book of poetry

would i push more hopfully
look for love more vocally
more ups and downs than a light switch
why should i be tight lipped

ive been searchin and not findin
workin and still climbin
i dont need an advocate
this is real talk call me the white fabolous

im cleanin out my closet
like my idol eminem
paintin a paicture u should screen it out and watch it
ill share my views before i give my pen 2 them

they will try and paint me as the bad guy
but aint seen the world thru my eyes
2 months after my dad died
my best friend commited suicide

6 months ago was the last time i self harmed
and it seems like a life time
instead of usin a blade i pick up a pen
and follow my dream of bein a rapper so i write rhymes

behind every dark cloud theres a silver linin
you have to have the will 2 find it
lifes short u need a passion or dream to fill the time in
2 get to the top it may take a while
be strong and dont let anyone break your smile

DEAD EYES - Monsieur L'Vampyre

    DEAD EYES - Monsieur L'Vampyre
I looked into the eyes of Death
to see if she is you;
so dressed in magic of the night,
like time can only do;

there in our dream where life is real 
as written in the Word,
became our haunting Melody, 
the sweetest ever heard.

Her invitation was to die, 
becoming Born Again;
there in her pleading was the truth 
as it has always been.

Deep in her eyes remains a place 
I found to sleep and hide,
secluded from all things I've known 
back on the other side;

while life the constant dream goes on 
as if there is no end,
until we meet her face to face 
and know Death is Our friend.

And she will show you all you've been, 
then kiss it all goodby,
so you'll forget, except for love,
not knowing how to die.

Lovely Dream

The sun did come up
my heart did rise
My love did wake up
her eyes did shine
We fell out of bed
Deep Into our heads
Its been a dream
A lovely dream, 
Its been a dream 
a lovely dream
lets go back and dream

Feel me when you feel the breeze
Feel me when you need to breath
Feel me when you fall
you fall
fall
asleep

Cups of coffee
Simple things 
She blows my mind
Off the brinks
more than you 
more than me
a synergy
Its been a dream
A lovely dream
Its been a dream 
a lovely dream
lets go back and dream


Feel me when you feel the breeze
Feel me when you need to breath
Feel me when you fall
you fall
fall
asleep

A communication
That goes unspoken
And I'm drifting 
While I'm wide open
More than you and me
A synergy

A few hidden notes
They're Just to tease 
And to express
What you mean to me
We fell out of bed
Deep in our heads
Its been a dream
A lovely dream
Its been a dream 
a lovely dream
Its been a dream
a lovely dream
lets go back and dream


Feel me when you feel the breeze
Feel me when you need to breath
Feel me when you fall
you fall
fall
asleep

If I Could Again

Remembering the sun those days
the smell of the sea
northwest breeze.
A thought flew thru me
hit me brought me back again
is that you?
I close my eyes 
stumble around the rocks
a memory saved of you I find.
Then another thought flows thru me
hits me while I'm here
must be you.
Time got lost inside my mind.
But thoughts of you I always find.
Open my eyes not here I cry.
Take me to the beach where seagulls fly.
I close my eyes to dream of you.
I close my eyes to dream I'll be with you.
I close my eyes to love on you.
I close my eyes to dream to be with you.
Those summer nights with friends at parties
we were young once
flying kites.
As the sun covered me
the ocean deep blue
I remember set you free.
Now I watch those good old times
in my head
favorite movie I hit rewind.
What I remember most with you
lieing there all night
with you feeling right.
Time got lost inside my mind.
Memories of you I always find.
I close my eyes just to have that time to dream of you.
At the beach where seagulls fly.
With you if I could again I would again with you.
I close my eyes just to dream of you.
In my dream I could again with you.
Oh yes with you all over again.
Twice a million times with you.
Its you with I would again.
If I could again oh yes,
I would with you again.

Blue

Dreams fade,
Minds trade.
Little late,
I'm awake.

See faith,
More mace.
Can't you see,
That I can't bleed?

Hey,
Why don't you listen for a minute?
Even if I have a little fit.
Why don't you listen for a minute?
Come on listen you little shit.

My dreams died,
When they got fried.
My mind was traded,
Because I was the one hated.
Even though I was a little late,
Couldn't you see I'm awake?
And if only dreams came true,
I would have you.
But since my dreams are under a shoe,
I am blue.

Take me for consideration.
I have done a lot to earn that blessin'.
Take me for consideration.
Please break the tradition.

I can't see anymore.
Every time I sleep, I hit the floor.
I can't feel the real anymore.
Only the sadness consumes me though.

Hey,
Why don't you listen for a minute?
Even if I have a little fit.
Why don't you listen for a minute?
Come on listen you little shit.

My dreams died,
When they got fried.
My mind was traded,
Because I was the one hated.
Even though I was a little late,
Couldn't you see I'm awake?
And if only dreams came true,
I would have you.
But since my dreams are under a shoe,
I am blue.

All the hard work,
All the sick faces,
All the late nights,
All the covered traces.

All the ripped jeans,
All the skipped truances,
All the scorning thieves,
My dreams are in ruins.

Hey, (hey)
Why don't you listen for a minute? (listen for a minute)
Even if I have a little fit. (I have little fits)
Why don't you listen for a minute? (listen for a minute)
Come on listen you little shit. (you are full of shit)

Hey, (hey)
Why don't you listen for a minute? (listen for a minute)
Even if I have a little fit. (I have little fits)
Why don't you listen for a minute? (listen for a minute)
Come on listen you little shit. (you are full of shit)

Bitch please.

My dreams died, (they were fried)
My mind was traded, (I was the one they hated)
Even though I was a little late, (I am still awake)
And if only dreams came true, (I am still awake)
I would have you. (I am still awake)
But since my dreams are under a shoe, (I am still awake)
I am blue. (You're a little fake)

Dont Stop

Dont Stop
By: IzaDonna
Dedicated to DKronik :)

Have you ever felt that way
Feelings you feel, you just cant say
Your hopes and dreams, just fade away
The grave you dug, is where you must lay
And you just see life, passing you by
It takes all your energy, to just not cry
You pray everyday, to just make it out alive
Giving everything you have, to go on and try
To ignore the people putting you down
Fade into darkness, to not hear a sound
Trying to raise up, and reach for the crown
But feeling the possibility is all around
But you stand up, to face the fight
Tryin to bring yourself back to the light
Working ur ass off every day and night
In your heart, doin what u know is right
Rising above to beat the hate
Living your life, to fulfill your fate
The move to heaven, ya might be late
Not ready to go, determination ur trait
Doing it alone, it makes u strong
Telling your story, ur bio in song
Keep on going cause it won't be long
Where ur life gets better, u can do no wrong
Only u can be the one to better ur life
Ignoring the words, that cut like a knife
Livin ur fairy tale, husband n wife
Its okay to be happy, finally feeling right
Try and push yourself, to be the best
In hardships u definetly pass the test
Keeping ur head up, ignoring the rest
Its ur life, so move on with the quest
Go deep down, n find ur inner self
Get off the drugs, improve ur health
Take the negativity, n put it back on the shelf
In the circle of life, don't be the kelp
So rise above, be the one on top
Be the one to make, the dance floor pop
The ones looking down, use their ass like a mop
And just always remember, don't ever stop

Rock and Roll Dream 1979

You don’t have to settle For heavy metal You don’t have to choose Rhythm and blues We’ll put a stop To A.M. pop We’ve got a scheme for a rock and roll dream We’re not fanatical ‘bout Beethoven classical It’s monotonic junk All that pogo punk you won’t have to save Trends of new wave We’ve got a scheme for a rock and roll dream The drummer will pound that rockin’ sound And the guitars scream in your rock and roll dream In your rock and roll dream You don’t have to settle For heavy metal There aint no disco In San Francisco This is a rock town We don’t play motown We’ve got a scheme for a rock and roll dream The drummer will pound that rockin’ sound And the guitars scream in your rock and roll dream In your rock and roll dream

Awakening

I cover my face to avoid daylight
Shining blindingly through the window shade.
For the wonderful dream I had tonight,
This morning awakening should be delayed.

How to extend the sleep and the bedtime
And not to let this illusion be lost,
But I should get up, once again, to climb
The highest peaks despite eternal frost.

That night dream may never return to me,
This morning I may have too much to lose,
Yet, I let the sun wake me up softly;
It gives me hope that I cannot refuse.

I'm Wide Awake, The Dreams Are Gone (Part 1)

I woke from a dream the other day
To find the memories that had run
To faded images and distorted sounds
Of what was the lingering sensation
Of a blissful oblivion

I woke from a dream the other day
The monotone greys that filled the air
And notes that sounded flat as they rang out
Made me long for that one sensation
Of a blissful oblivion

I woke from a dream again today
Clinging to the one memory that
Had lasted as the rest faded from my eyes
A perfect picture of your face entwined
With such a beautiful grace

I woke from a dream again today
the images had faded, turned to
nothing as the reality had brought me crashing
back to earth with nothing but my mattress 
and pillow to break my fall

Chevrolet Song on CD

Got it gettin' on down the straightaway,
runnin' on a thrill in the smoothest way,
cruisin' down the road through the local hop,
got it gettin' on down thru the neverstop,

Got it on the run in a good kind a way,
in a movin' groovin' sharp lookin' chevrolet,
gonna keep it on the run...havin' some kind a fun,
catchin' the scene in my chevy machine,

Catchin' the scene in my chevy machine,
cruisin' all around.....awake in a dream,
and I ain't done nothin' but keep it clean,
I'm a high ridin' hard drivin' gene in a dream machine,

Got it on the run in a good kind a way,
in a movin' groovin' sharp lookin' chevrolet,
gonna keep it on the run, havin' some kind a fun,
catchin' the scene, in my chevy machine,

In my dream machine, clean machine,
Yea, mean machine, out at play,
gonna keep it on the run, havin' some kind a fun,
yea, catchin' the scene in my chevy machine,

Got it on the run, in a good kind a way,
in a movin' groovin' sharp lookin' chevrolet,
gonna keep it on the run, havin' some kind a fun,
catchin' the scene, in my chevy machine,
catchin' the scene in my chevy machine,
catchin' the scene in my chevy machine.

Company

Caress me
This loneliness is overtaking
The feeling of these hands is insane
Faces everywhere I look
I can’t escape them now
They’re my company
Oh, they sing to me

La la al
Keeping time to the rhythm
Of my clapping my heart beating
As enchanting as they come
Making love to my empty soul
Gouging out my eyes as they dance

I guess they’re cursed
Maybe loveless
Maybe unloved
Maybe both
Or just crazy
If they push me over
Push me in
I’ll lose my weight
But the moon will dance again

One two three four five
Six
Seven eight nine ten
Going round in circles
‘Till they fall into the shadows again

No more dancing
No more singing
It’s all gone silent
It’s all gone still
I’m caressing myself
But at least I’m not lonely
It still feels amazing

Lyrics on life story by Peter White

Angelic life- that is how it was meant to be,
Glorious life- that is how it is going to be.
Together we shall row the boat in harmony,
Together we shall sow the seeds of eternity.

The wonderful 'we' shall carve a niche of reality,
A kingdom which shall know only the lights of felicity,
For love holds the essence to life's litany,
The essence of sublimity.
Love is generous,
Love is precious.

Dandelions and Tattoo Ink

I can hear the birds singing to the ocean,
I feel the rain falling from the sky.
I tripped on the sidewalk last Tuesday,
Trying to see the dandelions fly. 
Because when they flicker in the sunlight
I wanna watch them shine. 
I tatooed them on my heartstrings, 
So that I'll never die. 
Because if their wishes are in you
You'll never need to cry.
They all sing "I love you" 
They all just dream on by. 
I felt the pain of all the tears,
From broken empty dreams,
They branded me with signs of hope,
Of seedlings in the breeze. 
So when you see the ink I have 
Just know it's apart of you,
Just like all who stop to blow,
And dream of things come true. 
Cause when it flickers in the light,
You'll wanna see it shine.
Tattooed upon I am today,
So dreams can never die. 
You see this wish lives in me,
Now I don't have to cry,
It shouts to me "I love you"
And all my dreams are right.

Dream Life

I

In that small moment dream takes
to fly from memory and become
the nagging image of forgetfulness
the muted clank of psyche's hold
I can turn too well in bed
and learn the pains of comfort.

II

Whenever these rivers of the night
Dry hard into red scorched beds
Depression takes over my daily self
Like the avenging angel of time.
Scouring winds rub out the image
Leaving behind the carcase of summer.

III

Suppose thought gave way to dream.
Bridges would collapse. Our simple talk
Would become a spree of metaphor
Not even poets could afford.
Self would reign over all meaning
And again the tower would fall.

IV

But why do these solitary creations
reveal their meaning first to others
as if the dreaming tongue betrayed
its beloved solipsism? Eyes wrapped
in fabrics of truth and lies,
the dream asks its interlocutor: who?

V

A tree springs from my stomach.
Nebuchadnezzar's madness overcomes time and reason
to plant itself in my soil
to come alive again as if
all history is compressed by night
into an image none can forget.

VI

This drowning boat, this fish river,
this medusa returning as a bowl
of squirming snakes which I eat:
these dreams lie like abandoned gifts
but still share their secret being
with listeners to my night's echo.

Truth Is vol II

This world, is full of full lies and half truths, it's the American dream right but this dream wasn't about you, everything is recycled pure hearts getting used, assassination plots on ya life if ever you refuse, to do what they tell you whoever said that the president was in power, didn't they conspire to bring down the towers, it's crazy how in this country we so easily deceived, yet when approached with the truth so slow to believe, but all I see is false prophets, just a bunch of dim lights plugged into the wrong socket, so when you uncover what's undercover you don't see the flash whenever that camera shudders, the church says we're all sisters and brothers under the same government but tell me why should govern myself to the laws of political figures only play pawns, and they don't honor the King come on let's keep it real, the church is a business but yet you kept our missionaries and martyrs out the deal, forget that building your business is wicked how the Pastor rolling around in a Royce but it's children dying everyday from starvation and sickness, Yeah I know it's sickening the very thing Jesus didn't want the church to be, that's what y'all made it into the money blinded your vision so it's tainted you see, don't blame me I just got call it how it is, so don't you dare call me brother but plot against my demise with loose lips

The Little Girl who could

I was only nine years old when I first met you,
with brown hair and big brown eyes.
I was the smallest and quietest girl in your class
Sitting in the front row, always staring at the black board,
As if it had hidden answers for the questions you asked.
You always said “You never fail until you fail to try.”
And I don’t know how many times I’ve lived that one down.
I remember you reading a story about a young boy,
Who had a dream of buying the two finest hunting dogs.
In time he earned enough money and bought those dogs.
Living out his dream of being a hunter.
Like that little boy I had a dream of being a poet.
Writing poems that people would like and want to read out loud.
The fun part about your class was writing poems about anything and everyone.
I never liked to write but I soon found out that writing was my passion.
And maybe someday I’ll have my poems published so every one can read them.
But it was you, who encouraged me to write more in class,
Giving us papers to write almost everyday.
When it came time for me to move to fifth grade I begged my mom to put me back into your
class for another year.
So I could hear you read poems about other people especially me.
Who knew that some day that little quiet girl, who sat in the front row, would be a semi
finalist in a nationwide poetry contest and have you to thank.
I hope that former students of your class come to visit every day like I do, and tell you
what a wonderful impact you have made on their lives.
Telling you that they took your advice and listened when you said, 
“You never fail until you fail to try.”
Thank you for the little bit of encouragement you gave me and for reading your poems out loud.

False Awakening

Your hair is the golden rays of sunshine
That whisper through the window
The dust that glows around the moon at night
The crimson clouds of sundown
That give birth to the evening
Your smile that hides the shadows out of sight

I fall into forever, never to remember
The butterfly that wakes into a dream
But that's my truth to swallow, at least until tomorrow
When night returns this king unto his queen

And so a secret kiss
Brings madness and a taste of bliss
Your every charming word turns my world a little more
Then silently its drawn
The shadow on the wall
The moonlight hits your eyes my disguise falls to the floor

Dance me to the music that's playing in my head
Everytime I see you
That's my wish for tomorrow, and I shall wait in sorrow
Til night returns this king unto his queen

oriental song

soon my heart will fly to sadness
when the ways of knowing you
has no more gladness
and still my wanting heart will dream of you
it's jest a dream, i know that we are through
i melt a thousand times a day
an empty feeling that jest won't go away
tomarrow is another day
that wishes hopes and prayers, all refuse to pay
in secret i dream that you would rescue me
and from this dying place we'd soon leave
my heart would find a secret place
we'd rest our bags and call it Grace
but soon my heart will fly to sadness
then the pain of loving you will turn to madness

The Ballad Of Dan Lowe

Chorus:                River pronounced Key-yip-pa-ha

Keya Paha River
Keya Paha River
Keya Paha River
The home of Dan Lowe's dream.

Narration:

When a cowboy's day is over,
And the campfire's burning bright,
We can see Dan sit and wonder,
What will spoil his sleep tonight.

Will a stampede caused by lightening,
Cracking high above their heads,
Rout him from his bed roll,
To run the race with death?

Or will the night be peaceful,
With the cattle singing low,
And Whip-poor Wills calling,
To the Mocking birds below?

Dreaming of his sweetheart,
And days that are to come,
Of the pretty little ranch,
They will settle on and run.

Down by the old Keya Paha,
With the rolling hills of green,
Where the springs are soft and gentle,
The winters hard and mean.

In summer how they sweat and slave,
To get in winter feed,
And stand by helplessly and watch,
Fire work it's deadly deed.

With calving time and branding time,
When northers fiercely blow,
They stand and watch together,
As their family starts to grow.

Then suddenly it happened,
That dreaded thundering sound,
We scrambled from our bed rolls,
And raced for higher ground.

Cut off from our horses,
It was our only chance,
I made a leap and hung on tight,
The herd was coming fast.

Flashing horns! Flying hooves!
Hot breath and eyes that glare,
Choking dust, frightened screams,
The smell of sweaty hair.

Quickly, it was over,
And stunned we gathered there,
Tom and Joe, Dick and Bill,
With thoughts we didn't dare.

When we all had wandered in,
We each knew at a glance,
The dream that we had listened to,
Would never come to pass.

It is a mystery how it happened,
And why it took Dan Lowe,
But each of us hold in our heart,
A dream that turned to gold.

When a cowboy's day is over,
And the campfire's burning bright,
We can see Dan sit and wonder,
What will spoil his sleep tonight.

Carousel

Head spinning
you drew me in
Can't sleep at night
you're in my mind
But I'm dreaming

You're the magic 
in my life
Companionship
in day light
And I love your smile
But I'm dreaming

You pick me up
when I feel down
My hearts in my mouth
when you're around
I'm on a merry-go-round
And I love your smile
But I'm dreaming

I'm on cloud nine
when you're around
Can't walk just float
feet don't touch the ground
Can I hold you tight
I'm on a merry-go-round
And I love your smile
But I'm dreaming

If Only It Were Real

The dream of your face, the touch of your hand.
I still remember your sweet scent.
The sun sets shade of the tree.
It shall move across your face as if only meant.
This memory engraved into my mind.
It might as well be set in stone.
You may lay in my arms;
As if to have you as my own.
Our lives move together,
an unexpected twist of fate.
In sweet serinity.
I may ask for your love to take.
Your hand in mine.
We shall sway in the silent night.
I will protect you, sheild you I swear!
From anything of fright.
We are forever together, 
roots to never be upturned.
And then I wake up,
Something I'm afraid never will return.
This dream it haunts me.
Reminding me of what I'll never have.
Stabbing me in the heart;
Like a blade; a sharpened relapse.

Erotic Waltz

Waltz with me my dear
Under a majestic silver moon, gleaming
Listen... stars chimming 
Like erotic summer humming birds, singing
Your delicate breath tender upon my kneck 
Gives me an overfllow of chills
Your spell is gilded and high in beauty
Hold me and I will hold you 
Our new found galaxy is vibrant
Intoxicating, an elaborate silence 
Of comfort tickles us down the river bend of love
Amongst a unknown hour of night fall
We cherrish each crush of love with a kiss, moist lips
Another true romance 
We hold in our palms 
Can you hear our hearts beat in sequence 
Can you feel your pulse rise 
While we dream of some immaculate lover 
Growing deep inside 
Our forest dense and curious to find the truth 
The myth of love and life 
Is there such a dream strong enough 
To hold eachother by?

                                                    and wish that you could hold me tight,
                                                    that soon together we will be
                                                    and forever in love, just you and me,
                                                    to always hold each other tight,
                                                    together, forever I know is right.

A LOST PASSION ONLY EVOKED BY FELICITY

Yesterday we held so close, sharing tenderness
Heaven was our refuge from an earth deprived of sweetness; 
no gray and dark clouds in our sky so wide and blue... 
when we sailed from a sea which welcomed the smiles of two.


Looking out from my window, no desire is deeper than mine,
but wishes are dreams not easily obtained by being sorry...considering this reality;
and it might take forever to see one realized in present time,
but my faint hope is kept alive by remembering a lost passion only evoked by felicity.


Tender love of yesterday, will you quickly return to these lips?
I long to smell those roses and see the thousands butterfly, so shy,
circling around us as we kissed watching the foamy waves roll by...
making us dream of the many treasures in those sunken ships.


Sunlight refuses to come in on a sunny day, although my garden blooms...
so sadness is the mood I'm caught in, and unable to escape it, I seem to dread: 
imagining your revengeful phantom pacing the floor of these cold rooms;
and would you harm me for my unfaithfulness and rapture me in that world? 


I haven't loved anyone the way I loved you, but temptation was stronger than honesty,
and losing all that I desired to complete that wonderful dream stolen by error,
everything fell apart..making me feel worse than a soldier stricken with terror;
can I still feel the joy of each sensation through a lost passion only revoked by felicity?

Thought Streams

When your thoughts don't enter into mine And my thoughts evade yours Then who put the compulsions that You and me should face each other in the boxing ring? Better, I should stare at the clock for ages Listening to the crumbling minarets of thoughts All the external dins and bustles flowing past Better, I am left with my own ancient self My musings overflowing streams Against the tides I swim untiringly So many forms I see myself in In so many places, even in stages of reverie I am the sole protagonist, you all revolve Keeping me in the centre Lighting my torch of angelic bliss I watch the rise of dreams at the horizon of grey reality Despite all these Must I spell out what I am thinking?

Child Dreamer

The view I see so beautiful a new horizon a bright sky
everything’s falling into place.
Vibrations have started paving the way for a new life
Magnificent sights and wonders captured within my mind
Excitement within my heart beating faster
Air I breath I'm feeling good
Born with a gift within my labyrinth
Like the magic of a crystal
Images I see time talks to me
I close my eyes century’s pass me by
Looking in the sky my mind can fly messages I hear
By the water my power grows
By the touch of a hand a deep emotion I feel
I am the messenger from the light
My life force has the everlasting glow
The road that I travel lies deep within a realm of enlightened thought
In this land I am a mystic
Abilities within my heart and mind have no boundaries
My wisdom teaches the children of life
My thoughts can move the megaliths
With the wave of my hand a portal open up
Through this dimension angels guide my inner soul
Listen closely an echoing voice calls out
Now watch as my arms turn into wings
Hold tight prepare for an adventure through fantasy
Higher 'n higher into heaven sky
The many sounds that surround
A breeze that breaths
Look into my eyes watch me turn into a star shooting through the sky.
Tonight something beautiful is about to begin
In a world of wonder everything comes alive.
In the corner of a small bed room, 
A sleeping child soon will hear magic. 
A picture on the wall. a battered guitar by the window
This picture is filled with visions of harmony and dreams.
That guitar is magical it works for any child that makes wish.
Outside the window a shooting star with 
the power and magic to create dreams into reality.
A gentle breeze rushes in; an angel like glow ignites the picture
A symphony of color engulfs the room.
The guitar begins to play. A gentle voice fills the air singing
Dream that dream watch 'n see 
What you have always known and wished for soon will become reality
You are the one we’ll come to know and love
I know you’ve been abused it’s in your eyes
It’s alright to cry open up let the emotions soar
You are the star, climb the sky show the truth to the world
Show them what you can do, we have seen you do it and we know
You’ve been hidden from so many, a child so gifted and beautiful. 
That little voice you keep hearing is you guiding you along 
There are no boundaries for you and I in life.
Dream that dream keep creating
Watch and see what you have always known and wished for soon will be reality

Dreams the only thing left for free

Why are dreams the only thing left to free?
Apart from the air we just breathe

Even birth has a monetary value
Bringing life to this new world a child so pure

Asked once a man, about his dreams
He said

All I want is what I desire
My desires are not a faint of heart to perspire

Normality and Peace is what I dream everyday
Yet I learn is its just a mind’s play

Not seeking for lot of monetary gains
Nor a place where everyone’s a saint

Just seeking normality in Life, which I dream everyday
But Yet I am just a fool to realize it’s a game that my mind plays

No Interest in Being the richest in town
Neither a king with a golden crown

Seeking for true love and faith in prayers
Waiting for answers and prayers to be heard

I’m Not a Man with a huge rapport, said he, 
Just one of the normal kind

Political Borders are meant for one’s who see
But I am the One who is out to seek

Seeking for a normal truth, a truth about my dream
Why is it ,unachievable, making me bend down and scream

A Normal person , I am, Unable to See beyond Walls
Yet I try to take a leap and see if it falls

A drop of water can make a flame of fire go cold
Then why do the brave men not be Bold?

Not asking here for sacrifices, he emphasized
Just seeking for peace, and nobody to be criticized

For discrimination and separation is all a game
For we all humans are left to blame

Fame Power and Money is most abnormal game
I am just a Normal still understanding this mental pain

Alas at the end I feel Lost, 
Loosing everything at Everything’s Cost

Not bothered weather I shout it out loud or I scream
That I am not yet afraid to Dream

Gazed into his eyes I do not know why
I did not feel weather to smile or cry
Because when someone can just limit his numbers till infinity
I still have my dreams for free

A dream comes true

                         A dream comes true.
                  
                 Long awaited, now at last.
                 Bringing forth, now the dream alive
                 Conceived in mind, days and nights.
                 The laurels of victory, here they come.
                 Like a pregnancy, thus entailed,
                 The agony, the pain and fear alike.
                 But the joy of birth surpassed them all.
             
                 A dream comes true!
                 Costlier than money can trade
                 The heart becomes a fountain
                 And there flows the stream of joy

Jezebel

She moves like the ocean,
Enticing desire.
She makes steam with her motion,
Setting lust on fire.
 
Her eyes made of jewels,
Her touch made of bliss,
Casting love spells on fools,
With the taste of her kiss.


Her lips are a dream painted in scarlet,
She's sultry and tender, but nobody's harlot,
Don't know how she does it,  but she does it so well.
A voluptuous beauty, mm Jezebel.

She lives life like a dance,
Like a flickering flame.
She's waiting for romance,
But still knows the game.

Brazen and fair,
She's fire and ice,
  While you pray she'll share,
All her sugar and spice.

Her lips are a dream painted in scarlet,
She's sultry and tender, but nobody's harlot,
Don't know how she does it,  but she does it so well.
A voluptuous beauty, mm Jezebel.

Just a dream

Just a dream is all I need 
to keep the faith alive in me
What will we become
when we pass away and die

The life that was given to you
should not ever be abused
We all know by now
What will be will eventually be

Just a dream in hand 
Is what I'm searching for
Just a dream in hand
Open the door

Long behold the truth is told
let me tell you what I see
all around this fighting world
people talking about peace

I watch the news and nothing good
ever comes across the screen
I know if it ever did 
than I know it's just a dream

Just a dream in hand 
Is what I'm searching for
Just a dream in hand
Open the door

There's a general who's lost his way
doesn't know which way to go 
North South East or West
all he knows is he want's to go home

the troops he leads don't complain 
about the orders he gives to them
strange as though it may seem 
home to them is just a dream

Just a dream in hand 
Is what I'm searching for
Just a dream in hand
Open the door

i fallen for you
please hold me close

dont let me go
keep this moment
within our hearts
within this moment time

fallen into you
my dreams
suddenly came true
within this moment in time
forever yours only
fallen for you
taken by a storm
eyes so gentle as the rain
you keep me safe and warm

gentle wispers of an angel
call me
tell me your my baby
listen to the angels
that weep
they brought u and me together
though were miles apart
youve captured my heart


i fallen for you
please hold me close
forever please stay
dont go away
lets dream together
be my one and only
live forvever

like a dream
nothing is what it seems
without you
i would be incomplete
my best friend
my angel
the one who makes my heart
skip a beat

truly an angel from above
gentle wispers
of a choir
play
while i see your face in my dreams
your the one i could love
be my baby....

THE SECRET LOVE

    THE SECRET LOVE
It's the secret you told never young never old
to her eyes when she wanted to see
and the deepest of you was a thing that she knew
though you hid, it was all meant to be.

In the plan of all things for all beggers and kings
in a manner of speaking it's free
but the price is so high that you sell never buy
and she needs to know how it could be.

There's a song you have heard and she sings every word
you must sing them along in her key
and her voice soft and clear is the sound you will hear
through the rest of your life willingly.

If you touched her you'd die or melt into the sky
so you hide everything that you know
from her eyes that have seen all that it's ever been
when she looked then you let it all show.

She's the dream in the night and the dream in daylight
and the dream is where ever you go
like a mist in your mind and you never can find
any end to the dream that you know.

So you hide in your shell every word that you tell
every time that she looks there to see
and she wonders at you what you never can do
how you cling to what never can be.

Your Dream

You dream of a big bird,
Flying oh so high in the sky,
With silver wings taking you,
To the almightly high.
 
You dream of this bird often,
With secret thoughts clouding your head.
You long to reach the splendor of flight,
That so very few can tread.

A cloud of blue is waiting for you,
For no one can dream forever,
And it not come true.

If I were you I'd do the Same

So you find comfort in knowing your in disguise
Cover up is your ski mask 
You never turned down the task
Eye shadow is the dark glass surrounding your eyes
I guess it’s possible to crack the skies 
We’ve seen through your lies 
Sorry this time laws apply 

Molded into something you despise 
Do you find comfort living in lies
Your gaze is full of death rays (You still dream of better days)
Is it possible to make your life plausible
Cause of all the things you fear sobering up 
From the beer falls atop the list 
Death hovers in your kiss

We’re leaving you somber 
Hope you soon are calmer
Mid as well cut off your skin because your uncomfortable within 
So let it begin burn out your eyes (Blackened with demise)
make silent your cries (The dream dies)
Dispatch of your tung (Purge the air of the lung)
Slip on the only necklace that fits
The liar finally admits she quits
Not sorry that your gone 
Astonished it took so long 
Alleviated we are that you’re burning where you belong 
What’s it like to see the final dawn

A Dream Within A Dream

Life is but a dream within a dream
Oh, how innocent that would seem
If all were true, we shall redeem
All our life lived in a dream.
If we lose hope this day
If we allow it to fly away,
Nothing will ever be a dream 
But instead will change ev'ry day.
We, like a gentle leaf,
Will fly into the cushion of belief
Gentle, as soft as it would seem,
 We are consoled in our grief.
Though we all silently weep, 
Though life may seem so deep,
Though it quietly will creep,
Life is but a dream within a dream.

Have I Ever

Have I ever told you
that if I sit really still and silent,
sometimes. I like to think
I can hear your heart beating
in time with mine?
Have I ever told you
that when I watch you speak to me
through lines and cords,
and bytes and ram,
I imagine
your voice,
whispering into my ear?
Have I ever told you
that I wait out each day
in anticipation,
wanting
only an hour or two,
just a second in space and time,
to feel close to you?
Have I ever told you
that there has been times,
when I ached for you,
ached for you so badly,
that the emotions overwhelmed me..
and so I sat and cried?
Have I ever told you
that sometimes,
I will reach out,
touching your name
Have I ever told you
that after the first time I heard
the sound of your voice,
many miles away
I sat up all night,
turning the conversation over and over
in my mind,
examining it,
like some newly discovered species of flower?
Have I ever told you
that I would give everything up,
just for one night
to be able to lay near you,
to feel your chest rise and fall
with each breath you take,
just to know that you are real?
Have I ever told you
that I dream of you often,
I dream of you reaching out
and touching my hand,
simply to let me know
that you are there,
and everything is okay?
Have I ever told you,
have I still yet to tell you . . . 
that I love you?

"Can't You See Me (I'm Falling)"

You can find me in the darkness
just storming deep down inside
it's a place you'll find me always
my only secret place to hide
you could see me smiling
but no I'm just ready to fall
you could see me laughing
like I'mm already having a ball
I know I seem so lonely
but I can't tell you wrong
if I had it my way just only
I wouldn't be hearing this sad song
(Chorus:
but can't you see me
catch me from the sky
I'm falling fast, face first
yet I don't know why
but can't you see me
catch me from the sky
I'm falling fast, face first
yet I don't know why...)
I wanna dream a dream
so tonight I'll dream forever
I wish life could just seem
as if you and me were together
so pick up the pieces
just think the thoughts
steal my heart
and try to get caught
cause I'm lost 
I'm lost without you
hear my calling
I'm reaching out for you
(Chorus:
but can't you see me
catch me from the sky
I'm falling fast, face first
yet I don't know why
but can't you see me
catch me from the sky
I'm falling fast, face first
yet I don't know why...)
You tried calling me 
on your cell phone
I don't know if I'll answer
cause maybe I'm not "home"
but don't take it
the wrong way
just try again
before you hear me say...
(Chorus:
but can't you see me
catch me from the sky
I'm falling fast, face first
yet I don't know why
but can't you see me
catch me from the sky
I'm falling fast, face first
yet I don't know why
but can't you see me
catch me from the sky
I'm falling fast, face first
yet I don't know why
but can't you see me
catch me from the sky
I'm falling fast, face first
yet I don't know why...)

Say Goodbye

I called your house on Sunday, girl
Your Mama answered the phone
She said you packed your bags the night before 
And left for San Antone
Trying to fulfill a fading dream before time washed it away
She said you were going out on your own
To make it bg someday.
You didn't have to call me 
To give me a reason why
You didn't have to say a word
 'Cause a I have no right to pry
But I'm still sitting here feeling like I'm gonna cry
The least you could have done was call and say goodbye.
I hope you find everything you want
And all your dreams come true
But if they don't, just remember, girl
I'll be waiting here for you
And if you find the price of your dream 
Was just too high to pay
Then turn around, say goodbye
And head back home to stay

Winter's Gone

                Winters Gone


Waves crash down upon the beach,
I envision a life that is just out of reach.
Waves come in on the drifting sands,
I drift to a dream of a far off land.
As the waves recede to reveal what’s below,
The tears of sorrow along with the things I sow.
The air is so crisp; I stop to catch my breath.
The peace just surrounds, puts my mind at rest.
The deepest of blues, I can see for miles.
Sorrow evaporates as I dawn a smile.
The tranquility surrounds much like the water does the sand.
Representing the shifting sands on which I stand……
Only to realize there’s so much I don’t understand.
The waves pull back and reveal the truth,
I remember this spot from the days of my youth.
Peace becomes just a state of mind.
Like when the tide rolls back, never knowing what you’ll find.
In the distance, close, yet so far away,
It seems much like the words that I say.
I turn to leave to say goodbye.
I begin to realize it’s been a pretty good ride.
Times are tough but then it will change,
Beyond my grasp, yet still in my range.
Contrasts of colors, the sky verses the sea,
They appear much like the seasons in me.
The truth is I really miss so much,
It’s hard to see how I got so out of touch.
All the things I need always just leave.
Just like a magic trick, you just have to believe.
I see better days now that winter’s gone.
I dream of summer and the heat that I long.

Not The American Dream

Everybody has dreams
Only ones who got it good completes the American Dream
But what about the ones who haven't got it good?
We'll try to change the world if we could

The problems always stick out
But from what will you ever know what I'm all about?
The pressures of life be told
And to the depths of darkness our souls are sold

No one sees the source of my troubles
Only the trouble itself and only then it doubles
Ghetto people don't have a place in this world
We're cast from civilization
Forced to act upon differences from devastation

My place is unknown to myself
There isn't anywhere I belong
Therefore the police won't stay on my back for very long
My cries of sorrow are unheard
My hopes for a good life are gone~it's absurd

Look deep into my eyes
It's filled with nothing but hurt and good byes
But all you see is evil and lies
Look deeper and tell me if you can see my cries

This isn't no American dream
It's not at all what it seems
I open my mouth but you don't hear the screams
I'm trapped behind an invisible door
Forced to see the hurt that life has in store

But for every door, theres a secret behind it
Some secrets are of joy and others are full of pits
But what should I do?
Should I do your will to satisfy you?
Or should I do what I believe is right and get judged for that too?

If you look at it, theres really no choice
But why? Why is it we have no voice?
This isn't no happily ever after
We don't end up with houses full of joy and laughter
What you get is what you've got
To get more means hustling on the block

Living the Ghetto Lif, living under cover
Turn the pages and read, life isn't based on it's cover
But when will we come to see reality
For us the American Dream will never be

Our dreams are the only things we've got
But how will they come true if we don't give them a shot?
We can't when people are all on your back
Can't you see? Have you thought about that?

Have you thought about how it would be
If you can live your dream, especially me
I'd love to live my dream but can you see
That's this hard knock life ain't no cup of tea?

We get everything by doing what we gotta do
You know what  I mean~it ain't bran new
This isn't no American Dream
No, not even-no blue water or valley green
This is reality, The Ghetto Dream

A Story Of Downfall

And as he was walking down the path of life
He was overcome by darkness  and the blade of a knife,
The shadow that once followed behind him had become his very form,
And the heart that once beat inside him was torn,
He was driven by hate, yet longed for the love of another,
He wasn’t sane but deep under cover.
He knew what had happened  but chose to conceal it,
He knew  it would hurt him but chose not to feel it,
What had happened was a sudden change in direction,
He lost his meaning and followed his reflection,
Eventually his life was lost and he lived in a dream,
A dream of a life that was anything but  his own,
A dream that one day he wouldn’t be alone,
He never did explain his pain,
He didn’t have to,  we saw his life drain,
He once was a boy that loved to be living,
If he wasn’t playing he was giving,
Giving his love and giving a reason,
A reason to live and…
Well, isn’t that enough.
It must have been rough,
To live life so happy then suddenly fall,
To fall deep in a hole, and come out so small,
He had a life but wished he could leave it,
“Its just another dream, I don’t think I need it,”
Some people cried and some of them stared,
Some were destroyed  but all  were scared,
A lot of them said they weren’t prepared,
But how can you prepare for something so tragic,
Something beyond life and all of its magic,
How  do you plan for the loss of a friend,
The only plans you had were to be there to the end,
This boy was a time bomb, just waiting to blow,
What went through his mind, we wish we could know,
He wasn’t crazy, nor was he sane,
He simply had his own ways to deal with the pain,
He would smile at those who gave him the time,
And was always excited to write down a rhyme,
He loved through his heart, and was loved through his words,
He talked to himself and sang with the birds,
Everyone loved him that’s why no one knows,
“Why would he do this, there’s nothing that shows.”
The truth is he lived life to see its bitter end,
He lived through those years as his own best friend,
Now he is dreaming in a world far away,
Maybe he’ll return, maybe someday.

For R E Clennon-Powell

There was a flower with a dream
Within its heart like a sun
And life was like a living stream
That kept rolling on and on
The flower grew each day brighter
And the dream steadfast yet
Like a stamen still sweeter
Golden rose, but could not set

Time grew longer and flowers fade
But a pollen sweetly holds
One dream a stigma to invade
And rise while time onward rolls
For that pollen flourished stronger
When petals shrivelling aged
And could nurse the dream no longer
Against life's sore sudden rage

Each petal knew its day was done
It could not bring still the bee
Its brighter days already run
The nectar dried, dry the tree
But pollens are dreams holding fast
To bring a seed out of gold
The way dreams hold and ever last
While lovers turn gray and old

Their dream to hold hands, dream to walk
The sea's edge kicking the sand
To climb a hill and sit and talk
Or plant and sow the rain glad land
Or like a petal drunk with joy
To dance her in the fresh wind
Holding still the promise since a boy
When ttrembling they halted sin

It was the dream that like a sun
Finally dried up all his veins
The bee to pollen dance and spun
But useless came the bright rains
It sogged him, nothing stiff stayed
When petals shrivel and falls
The flower wrinkles and we fade
And time tumbles solid walls

Only for satisfaction then
They laughed while the waning moon
To its rest sadly too descend
Dreaming bright amidst the ruin
Of love kept O too long apart
Of flowers faded in the sun
Of dreams still sweetening the heart
Of hopes past when time is done

If Lastnights' Nightmare

If last nights' nightmare were to come real
I would not be here writing
I would'nt know how
For all my sanity was about to disappear.

I dreamed I was surrounded by 
Many uncaring souls
They even were laughting at my being
Pretending not to know.

What did this dream mean
When it awoke me
From a much needed rest
As my tired body aced so deep within.

Even a dead friend 
In my dream did appear
I cried out to him
And he too had a deaf ear.
 
I was surrounded by clutter
With things all laying in my way
It were as tho I were not present
As people gathered laughting
Looking thur my belongings
Looking thur my remains.

Maybe a "Wake-Up-Dream"
Is what the nightmare was all about
Maybe it was God's way of showing me
Clear the passage
Tidy up your messes
For this life's final journey 
Will soon be in flight.

A Dream In Color

I saw you in a dream last night,
When I awoke I thought I knew
You once more, but it was only
A dream in color.

You kissed me on the floor, and
We danced on the ceiling.
We spun in the unnecessary 
Touch of the other half.
Blurry, but clearest of all visions
I was home.

Awoke in a sweat, pretending I 
Don't know what's bothering me.
Reading through the laughter,
Etching our names in the tier of
Rust that covers our past,
I was home.

I saw you in a dream last night,
when I awoke I thought I knew
You once more, but it was only
A dream in color.

Martin Luther king Jnr – A tribute

Every man goes to bed. 
Every man sleeps.
Men dream dreams.

We keep dreaming.
Praying not to stop the Lutheran dream.

‘ I have a dream’,
‘ I have a dream’,
that one day…

on and on and on,
the dream continues.
What have you dreamt so far?

A Cowgirl's Dream

To walk through a paster full of 
wild flowers, up to her West.

To sit under the shade tree's, with
the one she loves.

To lie in the cool grass at night 
staring at the moon and stars talking about forever.

To listen to the stories from the old' days,
told by an old' cowboy.

To lie in the cool grass in the light of day,
listening to the birds singing.

To sit in a swing and listen to the 
rain on a tin roof.

To walk down an old dirt road,
that has long not been travailed.

A cowgirl's dream is not only like 
the words to a country love song,
But is the dream of all dreams that 
gives her the freedom she longs for.

Who is this?

I awake from the same dream, that one when I heard you scream ,you sounded so close but 
surely not, In that dream there was fire, my hands are still hot, In this dream your running, 
running from me, but the ashes are heavy, so thick I cannot see,Let me help you little girl 
please come see, but when the girl turned around the girl was me........

Don't Let Your Dreams Get Away From You

So many people you see on the street
Are walking heads down with their eyes at their feet,
You tell from how they move they’ve let it die.  
You see an old friend and you ask him “What’s new?”
--He changes the topic to talk about you,
He hates to let you see his dream went by.

Everyone says, “Son, you’re wasting your life,
The years come down like a rusty knife
And cut the heart from out of your fantasy.”
It’s damned good advice but the kind you ignore,
You smile and you’re keeping right on like before,
That golden dream is your reality.  

Don’t let your dreams get away from you, 
There’s nothing that’s quite as true
As a dream of your own—it’s stronger than stone,
Don’t let your dreams get away from you
There’s nothing that’s quite as true.

The Coming Light

The dream of a day that will end the night
And the birth of a cloud come to see the light
Such tales will be told as our hearts take flight
Such power we find will be true inside

The dream of a storm that believes our pain
Only enters our minds when it starts to rain
Such tales will end once we see this game
That such desperate things start when we still blame

The dream of a darkness replanting seeds
And the end of a heart that held every need
Such tales that were spoken became disease
And such painful times end our clarity

Awaken the dream that recalls our minds
That we feel with our hearts through our open eyes
With such timeless tales surrounding life
It’s hard to believe that we could be blind

A new dream is found in the gathering rain
The love that I feel now speaks my name
And the eyes that reflect speak a million pains
But this story can’t end until it starts again

The dream of a day that began with night
We will live again through whatever skies
The tales of timelessly taking flight
Is the truth that I find when you are my light

I Dream, Afraid

I Dream, Afraid

I dream of a cottage garden in the midst of a wooded land,  
A beautiful, colorful place, God and nature walk hand in hand.
Above clouds and trees, souls sometimes soar for a glimpse at heaven’s door.
Then, back they fall to bask in light amid shaded flowers galore.

I dream of a walk in Paris down a street lined with artists’ work,
Prominent vibrant painting places where views will connoisseurs perk.
Along those streets of smooth cobblestone green moss grows between the cracks.
The artists’ paint serenely strokes street scenes; swarms gather at their backs.  

I dream of a distant patron with interest in my arts’ success,
Whose guiding help fortifies my world and eliminates distress.
Someone out there with marketing flare one someone who really cares.
And brings my dreams across the gap between raw talent and luminaries.

I dream this dream that many others dream throughout artistic groups.
But here I am with heartfelt dreams afraid to jump through any hoops.

Forest Phantoms

A will forlorn without release
The things forgot still bring disease
A dream of man to want a war
The nightmare comes, but I still want more

Shifting shapes stalking through night
To my surprise, I’m frozen in fright
The darkness climbs up to the sky
Upon a tree with fixated eyes

Nameless things speaking of death
A place that sings without any breath
Time now fades into one truth
The darkness stalks; it waters my roots

Tears and stone are what I’ve become
The creature grows, but then the sun-
….Nothing there because there never was
The light breaks through and now I can walk

Forests die and forests awake
A void will thrive until there is day
A dream of man to want a war
The nightmare ends when the sun shows us more

The Dream

Everyday we live, 
gives us more time to learn,
From each and every vision, 
which comes to us in turn.
We feel the need for change…
push toward progress,
When the dreams rewarded, 
we look upon success.
For the dream is the beginning,
an embryo for steps to build,
Where sombre thoughts progress,
to have the dream fulfilled.
.
How often do we toss, 
a dream into the wind,
And let it ride up in the sky,
so when it comes back again,
We become the master, 
to keep that vision high…
It's we who rope the dream, 
so it may never die.
For the dream is the beginning,
an embryo for who will strive,
Where sombre thoughts progress
so the dream does come alive. 

Across the river, over mountains, 
past each horizons end,
We'll always dream of what lies, 
hidden 'round the bend,
And this world is full of dreamers, 
prepared to gamble and combat
With the dream which carried us
from when the world was flat.
For the dream is the beginning,
an embryo born in the mind 
Where sombre thoughts progress
For the outlook of mankind.

Counting into Dreams

Gently my thoughts find their places
Through the drums and past dark spaces
An over-thought of panicked races
I close my eyes and count their paces

Alleviations, inner changes
Congregating me in stages
Deprivation of my rages
I count their signs and see the sages

Lighting me with every wisdom
The universe becomes decision
And through my flowing I see visions
The dark and light seek out collision

Every dream that I can measure
Becomes a claim of evil pleasure
But every dream that I can treasure
Cleanses darkness through true weather

Into breaths of deeper meaning
There comes a place that I’m believing
Reaching into further dreaming
The love that fills me knows no deceiving
Even counting back, I’m never leaving

The Dreamer

Verse 1
i open my eyes, and the sunlight shines thru broken castle walls
and the visions of past battles echoe thru the dark stone halls
as i walk towards the oak door, i sense there`s something wrong
see the sword arc towards me in a blink i am gone

Verse 2
running thru concrete jungles pursued by my worst fears
turning corners in slow motion weaving in and out of spears
look behind me ravens flying through the misty flowing veil
Will i ever leave this place alive , remember to exhale

Chorus
and i`m dreaming in a dream thats in a dream with no way out
and these soundproofed walls that line my mind means no one hears my shouts
ca`nt wake up or or have i woken?, see my self asleep in bed
am i living in the real world or this one inside my head?

Verse 3
high above the world im flying Golden Lions by my side
a single whisper in the breeze talks to a teardrop in my eye
Silver Dolphins weaving in and out of living breathing seas
and the thought of leaving this place brings me crashing to my knees

Verse 4
i open my eyes see the sunlight shine on friendly eggshell walls
and the sound of childrens voices echoe through familiar halls
as i walk towards the bedroom door, theres something out of place
see the mirror, hear the screaming from the man without a face

Repeat Chorus

Only a Dream

I fell asleep thinking about you
You and me together at last
Just the two of us...me and you
Starting over, putting everything in the past

But then I woke up from this fantasy
And was back in this thing called reality

It was only a dream
A dream of mine
One that won't come true
I'm just wasting my time
Wasting my time on you
It was only a dream

You were back in my life
You even made me you wife
We were so happy together
Just the two of us forever

But then I returned from this fantasy world
Back into reality where my life was torn

It was only a dream
A dream of mine
One that won't come true
I'm just wasting my time
Wasting my time on you
It was only a dream

Yeah, that's all it was...a dream
Only a dream
Yeah, it was only a dream

She Dreams Away

she speaks in silent whispers
of an intimate dream inside her
the secret passes between syllables
as the night descends around her
she talks into the darkness 
like an old friend it awakens inside
to see her in all her beauty
and like the wind it blows her mind
she sees all the way through
as the other side opens wide
to receive her innocent gaze
and smiles with all its might
she stares into the mirror
waiting for it to reveal its truth
it retains her subtle glowing aura
and tells her the secrets of life
inviting her to fly away into infinity
she smiles and blushes so sweetly
without a word she is whisked away
into that dream she has held inside
the fantasy becomes her reality

Perfect Mirror

I am a perfect picture
The background bloody skies
The centre full of angels
But the foreground steals their eyes

A massacre of demons
An agent with a smile
The scars depict an empty vessel
And the shroud depicts denial

I hold a dream of hatred
I raise my glass to hope
I promise I will wake up
When the darkness throws a rope

I am a perfect poem
The words were never there
Only people standing silent
As the paper makes them stare

A silence full of reason
A tear for the cost
Every second they are breathing
Is another meaning lost

We held the dream of hatred
It poisoned every hope
We could promise that we’d wake up
But we’d need to steal another’s rope

I am a perfect mirror
I reflect what you’ve become
I am the disconnected
If only so I never turn and run

Dream Away

Another long day gone, it's no surprise
Another night has come so close your eyes
And dream blue skies and dragonflies
Just close your eyes

And dream a world that's full of wondrous things
Dream of all those things that dreaming brings
To queens and kings… even little ones
Wondrous things

Dream of everything that's good and right
Dream of innocence and dream of light
Dream a future that is shining bright
And dream of everyone
Everyone who's loving you tonight

The summer moon will shine to light your way
The stars will shine and chase your fears away
Til another day
So close your eyes and dream away

Another day is gone so close you eyes
And someday soon you'll be both strong and wise
The time will fly, but that's another day
So close your eyes
And dream away

My Beautiful Thief

To all the beautiful women who stole my heart
A beauty in the far off myst
Appearing to me for a trist
On this night of nights
The moon shines bright
You enter as a thief
through the smoldering fog 
Enter you do bit by bit
mesmerized as to what is to
come next.
Bits and pieces of you glowing
showing. Bits and pieces ...Not
Long Flowing Hair Smooth as Silk
Coconut skin
Your arms and legs a sight to behold
You are the Thief that has stolen my heart
The Beautiful Thief that will not depart
Beautiful Thief Returns
A cool breeze blows across my face
Left breathless in my space
It is The Beautiful Thief
The one that stole my Heart
Thoughts that You were to depart
Now known that your affection is of 
Essence.
Thine Eyes twinkle
Sparkling Like Diamonds
My Heart ...A flutter...The Return
Of The Beautiful Thief.
You are The Pirate That Holds My Heart.
The cool breeze... Now A Strong Wind
Engulfing us Together
Fused in our Passions
The Fire Has Returned
The Flame Has Been Lit
The Fires of Our Hearts
Reach The Sky
Return of The Beautiful Thief
The Fire bewtween us blazing
What has ignited cannot be overcome
Our Passion Razing
Our Sensations Give Way To Temptation
Thy Beautiful Theif...You Are Back
The admission fee of this love...Free
Feel the vibration
'Neath The Full Moon
The Bright Stars 
Smiling Upon Us
As we caress,confess and express
Our love
Living a Moment that many only dream of.
Smothered in your arms 
Giving way to your charms.
Your sweet lips...Your hips
hold me in a passionate eclipse.
Gone You Were...Now Your Return
The Return of the Beautiful Thief
The Triology of the Beautiful Thief
The Fire bewtween us blazing
What has ignited cannot be overcome
Our Passion Razing
Our Sensations Give Way To Temptation
Thy Beautiful Thief...You Are Back
The admission fee of this love...Free
Feel the vibration
'Neath The Full Moon
The Bright Stars 
Smiling Upon Us
As we caress,confess and express
Our love
Living a Moment that many only dream of.
Smothered in your arms 
Giving way to your charms.
Your sweet lips...Your hips
hold me in a passionate eclipse.
Gone You Were...Now Your Return
The Return of the Beautiful Thief
The Triology of the Beautiful Thief

...dreaming...

i dream of you
in black and white
but your eyes
are always blue
and they look into me
with a touch of fire
turning my soul
into exquisite flames.

but these dreams
are like old-school movies
they are gray tones
only accentuating
the harmony
in which we live.

and here among
vibrant hues
that blend and mix and shout
we are quiet, simple, solid
and i long to return to that solidity
that simplicity
that quietude
or to bring it here
to this world of colors
where i dream only of you
in black and white.

DREAMERS

It’s hard to dream the dream when the world around you wants only violence.
Why do I dream? Why am I a dreamer? What good am I to this world?
Who am I without my dreams?

Cold and hard is the heart of a non-dreamer.
Ice covers the eyes and blocks out the colors of the Universe.
They dress in shades of darkness so the colors can’t get near them.

I hang my head low and my colors are faded.
Oh spirit, help me unlock the colors from within.
The power of the dreamer is sometimes hard to find.

A cry of mercy and a plea of hope, escapes from a dream.
The colors must have their freedom, no matter what the cost.
The dreamer bleeds and bones are broken.

Finally, the key is discovered and the colors burst forth.
The colors blind all as they shred the nightmares to pieces.
Bones are still broken and the darkness still waits for its chance once again.

The key is the dream. Never stop dreaming for you are the chosen dreamer.

Dreams

The dreams I dream make me feel, the dreams I dream make me seem real, 
when they die and leave me alone, can I make it on my own?

Without my dreams who will I be? So afraid to look, so afraid of me... The mirrors 
have lied and told me what I wanted to see, now tis only a shadow that’s left of 
me...

 The mirrors lay broken and glass shards fill my room, reflections of a past lie, in 
the light of the moon...

Let Freedom Ring

I Have a dream, his words echoed round the world
that one day every little boy and every little girl
would walk together hand in hand
As brothers and sisters in a colourless land

A dream that one day this proud nation
Would finally eradicate segrigation
that no one will be judged by the colour of their skin
instead on the chracter that lies within

Let freedom Ring from stone mountain in georgia
Ring from the peaks of california
Ring from the land of the pilgrims pride
Ring from every hill and every mountainside

A dream that the state of mississippi
Will one day understand the true equality
and live and work for the greater good
and treat each other like we know we should

A dream that we stand side by side
Hold on to our dignity and cultural pride
and walk together to a positive end
I have a dream today my friend

Let freedom Ring from stone mountain in georgia
Ring from the peaks of california
Ring from the land of the pilgrims pride
Ring from every hill and mountainside

Prayer Of An Immigrant

God, only to you I bow, you’re my King;
And for me, there will be no other king.

You have bestowed me a new life;
You’ve given me a pretty wife.

You’ve gifted me a silver quill;
It brings love, peace, and joy, so real.

You’ve led me from great darkness to light;
And the sun, now, is shining so bright. 

I am now rich, for I have you in my life;
You’ve strengthened me, against strife.

But, here I ask, before you take me; 
I’ve a dream that I wanted to see.

I shouldn’t be asking this, O Lord,
For I’ve everything that money can’t afford.

O Lord, You, I should be praising and thanking
More material things, I should not be asking

But please, if it’s not hard enough for you;
I really want to see my dream come true.

Thou, I know in your Heavenly abode I’ll reside,
For you did promise me that I will be on your side.

Yet, on this earth, O my Lord, you created places…
So beautiful and I crave to see its faces.

Let me see Canada, Australia or America,
As you’ve let me see Europa, Russia and Africa.

I beg you; oh, please give their Consuls a good heart;
Without your blessing, from Athens, I can’t depart.

All these, I ask, including the forgiveness of my sin,
Only in the name of my Savior Jesus Christ. Amin.

IF I HAD ONE DREAM

I wish I could talk to you
tell you how I feel
that will never happend 
you don't understand anything I say.
We started out friends, looked up to you,
admired you in how strong you were,
always there for me, no matter where I was
you'd find me, hold me , tell me everything will be o.k.
Without you, I felt so empty,
dreaming of the day that you'd ask me to be
your wife, live in a big house, a white picket fence
children we could call our own, a home.
This relationship has turned into a living hell.
I don't know any more why I'm here or even alive
a dream came true, that dream ended way to soon,
that night you pushed me that minute the sickness began
I'm not going to dwell on the past
I don't know how to forgive you,
you can't seem to recognize how wrong you are
no appology, just more justifications to cover your lies.
My heart has torn to the point of no return 
My God Mike I Love you so much
why does it have to be this way?
If I had one wish It would be
I'd be enough for you, make your life complete
realize were soulmates, Love Unconditionally
Before it's to late!!

Gently

We used to hear our voices on the winds that stirred the trees
And together watch the snow fall, every moment we would seize
Drinking till the morning light and sleeping on the beach
Funny how we thought we knew the things that life could teach us
So sure that death would never reach us

So many years between us, so much history has past
The changes we have gone through, all the things we thought would last
We thought we made our choices in the face of Destiny
But Destiny chose for us as far as I can see
It's just too bad for you, and worse for me

So bury deep the bones, and wipe away the tears
Set the dream in stone to last a thousand years
Listen to the breezes blow, and watch the silent falling snow
And the memories will know that I was here

I think a lot about us now looking back across the years
How we lived for every hope and dream, never dreaming of the fears we'd face
As time grows short, and colors bleed to white
The hour is upon us to at last give up the fight
I believe I'm going gently…

So bury deep the bones, and wipe away the tears
Set the dream in stone to last a thousand years
Listen to the breezes blow, and watch the silent falling snow
And the memories will know that I was here

Let the dying light remind me
Of the friends I leave behind me
I'll be thinking of you kindly as I leave with no regrets
There's nothing here for you now
Leave me gently, let me go
Tell me once more that you love me
So the memories will know.

Letting go...

safe in a higher power 
the belief the dream 
in dream world... 

she opened the scriptures... 
she showed me...wishes 
...wishes will not be granted... 

...I feel safe in this knowledge 
...my God has not forsaken me... 
my wants...are not my wants... 

...empty my mind...see love... 
let the anger go... 
see love...let the anger go 

...the want is sin... 
without love the all the all 
is immaterial... 

I have love...therefore I have all...

"Dream Call"

Fortunately I feel sense of 
dream,Which knocked think door
of beautiful natural world.

I feel dream like a rainbow 
scattering happiness between 
me and divine world and think
silence of dream is the small 
drop of the tears of eyes and 
which makes oceans of think.

He who likes my dream receives
best,he who dislike lost most

TRUE LOVE

I have started to wonder about something about love, about true love.
Is it truly worth all the agony it has to offer?
Is it truly worth all the heart ache and pain?
Is it truly worth the emotional and mental strain it has on one self?
Does it have to be like a roller coaster going up and down to achieve the 
supposed gift's love has to offer?
I have been in love before. It felt amazing feeling all the bliss, the butterflies in 
your belly, the way your body quivers by the sound of their voice, and the 
adrenaline rushing through your body.Your body is on a natural high.
Then when everything starts to calm down, you get comfortable and then...........
{BAMB}the explosion happens, and your face is in the mud.You get up in a daze 
of confusion wondering to yourself, What just happen? What went wrong? You 
don't have any understanding this pain you feel.
Your at a loss not knowing why? Is it worth all this for the glory that love is 
suppose to be? Will we ever truly get that true love that people dream about or is 
it all just a dream that never comes true?

UNKNOWN TOMORROW

In this silent evening
I have stopped worring,
I'm convinced to forget
the worries of the present...

I dream of the unknown tomorrow by
looking up at the serene sky;
my solitude gets deeper
as darkness draws nearer...

If sadness gets unbearable,
I'll try to find comfort
from anyone who might
lift up my spirit;
where else will I find an honest smile
if not in someone who cares a lot?

In this stange moment
I remain to dream of that
mysterious land which appears
in the clear distance;
down there there must be 
something to make 
a few changes
into my destiny...

I'm not afraid of the unknown tomorrow,
whatever expects me
I'll accept it with courage;
I dream of the unknow tomorrow
as the red sun burns on the range...

Instinct...

She's graceful like
a majestic waterfall...

she illuminates everyone
everywhere she goes...

her dream once revealed
on a vivid horizon...

...her dream found it's
way into my imagination...

...her spirit glistened...
like fresh water in spring...

her smile - her laughter
resonates within me...

she is my lifes' luxury...
my only one - my one true
distraction...

this woman I love...
this spiritual connection...
